Ernest Griglen was beaten by police.
Today, Griglen is unconscious and clinging to life with the use of a ventilator after emergency brain surgery…
The theory of six degrees of separation holds that everyone reading this is separated from Ernest by six degrees on average.
The beating of Ernest strikes me close to home, because I’m only two degrees of separation from him.
I’m willing to bet that at this point in human history, my two degrees of separation from a victim of police brutality is about average.
The single stupid premise is creeping closer to us all.
