“If you’ve been paying the slightest attention, you may have heard: Baltimore is on fire. If you’ve paid more attention than that, you might be aware that the United States of America has lately had a problem with police-involved shootings—though it doesn’t take a true scholar of our law enforcement’s history with racialized killings to know that the narrative played out in the stories of Freddie Gray, Michael Brown, Walter Scott, Tamir Rice and Eric Garner has long been a part of our national fabric. So with this recent spate of fatal incidents fresh on our minds, we might be inclined to engage with taser exposé Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle in a preconceived fit of righteous indignation.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
