From the foreword in the book “The Unarmed Truth” by John Dodson

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.” MLK Jr.

“Whistle-blowers are a special breed. They risk their careers to speak the truth, even if everyone around them is entangled in a web of lies. They do it because honor and integrity are more important to them than their own self interest. The truth ruffles feathers. It upsets bosses and co-workers. But it needs to be done, and it takes someone with guts to stand up and speak out.”

I am a whistle blower. But nobody hears my whistle.

An old schoolmate of mine writes;

It (the partition risk/danger/compliance/viability issue) does fascinate me, how you can have such a solid sounding issue... and have the ones most affected by it… not agree.

I wonder why police and taxi drivers are not on your 'side' in this issue. Is it because the police actually want to practice brutality?? 

That's fascinating, isn't it? I don't know why others don't pay more attention. Just because it doesn't happen 'to you'directly doesn't mean it's not important. 

I can only guess... because it's not a Republican/Democrat thing… people don't know what 'side' to be on?

I dislike all the superficial political stuff that others post. I'd much rather get into a real issue like this one.

You are teaching me something here and now I look very carefully at the taxis and police cars in Vegas and other places where we travel here, out west. I also read more carefully the police reports/news about police actions and the conditions of their prisoners. I wonder if it's an 'east coast thing', where life is faster and more violent on average. Whatever, I am glad for this awareness you have provided. I am glad to have this useful issue to think about. 

You should feel more than proud for what you have accomplished so far and I hope you never give up!
