Come Saturday Morning: Oh, Neil…

When watching the cop-exacerbated and cop-created violence in Ferguson, Missouri this past week, my mind keeps flashing back to a very nonviolent, honest, and fundamentally decent cop I knew, Neil Haugerud.

Neil passed away two years ago this June, and in a way I’m glad he didn’t live to see the Michael Brown shooting and its aftermath, because if he wasn’t already dead I’m pretty sure it would have killed him.

Read up on Neil here, here, and here. He was a prince among men, and one of the deepest thinkers and kindest souls I have known during my life. I miss him dearly.
