Published by Dr. Clyde Ford: "Whether it’s a Black American or a cop, senseless death is a tragedy"

"Police Officer Killed …” That’s the partial headline that appeared in my inbox the Sunday before last. I was pretty certain I knew the rest. A white police officer had killed yet another Black person, this time in Seattle. When I clicked to read the full article, though, I was surprised to discover the complete headline was “Police Officer Killed While Helping at a Crash Scene.”On June 13, off-duty Seattle Police Department officer Alexandra B. “Lexi” Harris was struck and killed by a driver along I-5 when she stopped to help out at the scene of a crash.
