Our nation is reeling again. When a grand jury failed to indict officer Wilson of any charge in the shooting death of Michael Brown, frustration and anger exploded in the street. Screens of smart phones lit up with tweets, articles, and commentary. Comments fly. Frustration escalates. There are outbreaks of violence and riots. Policing, particularly the militarized form used to ‘control’ the crowd is scrutinized. Pain is in the air.
How should Christians respond?
