Posted by Chris Bartley on

“Right the wrong Hear the song Before long U won't hear nothin' but the crackle of flames Right the wrong” No words we have can fully express how recent events in Minneapolis have made us, as a community, and myself as an individual feel. Feelings of anger and outrage, deep sorrow, and shock. Murder is murder, no matter the uniform being worn or the colour of the victim’s skin “Cut me, cut U, Both the blood is red” Prince told us that the cold in Minneapolis kept out the bad people, sadly it didn’t stop them all.. At times like...
