Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

  • Lucy, I’m that guy that started the petition calling for the indictment of DHW and runs the Justice for Patricia Cook Facebook page. Thank you for this song, and I agree with the sentiment. The myth of the uniformed man who can do no wrong is necessary to maintain the status quo. Seems harmless enough, until someone like Patricia pays the price for it. That myth is one of the biggest reasons that there is a defacto separate system of justice for those in uniform. I will let Mrs. Cook’s brother know about this song. He’s become a good friend since I started on this mission, almost 2 years ago.

    I have to also say how much I enjoyed the song. I’ve been playing guitar and writing music since 1974. I retired just prior to the shooting and began outfitting my little recording studio last year. Your voice really sells the song. If you ever get back to Culpeper, we’ll have to play some songs. I also appreciate your politics. Here in Culpeper, I think that I’m about the only person who isn’t in the Tea Party. God bless.
