Sorry! I did become bitter because of the unbelief, maybe I was not eloquent enough to bring to light a concerning issue in a way that it should have raised alarm and not the need to proof that it is a true incident. All organizations consist of people and people can be of different views, philosophies and personalities. I have worked in close quarter with youth planning to go into police force, everyone is not emphatatic, ethical or intelligent enough to understand the broader issues faced by various sections of our communities. Many are oozing with the excitement to get into the force and use their physical attributes to enforce law. They have their own biases and formed judgements on the basis of stereotypes about individuals. So in the incident with my friend ; she was unfortunate to come across such officers. She had to tell them that they should stop hitting her as their is her friend nearby in the bush who might be recording the whole incident and one of the officer actually went around to check if there wAs anyone around and then while letting her go told her that no one would believe her story as it is her word against theirs. They seem to know what they were saying as that is what is happening, No one is believing the reality. As for the highway of tears, we face such like roadblocks in the progress of finding our missing daughters, sisters and friends because at a time their stories seemed unbelievable too. When I posted the incident initially I hoped that their would be awareness around the issues which are faced by a section of women who are struggling with a vicious circle of poverty, homelessness, abuse, addiction and on top of that unwarranted violence from these two officers. Anyway my friend is seeking help from social services and hopefully will get justice.
