The Weather Report

The story out of Charlotte, North Carolina last week was deeply troubling. The video recordings of the shooting death of Keith Scott pushed me to the edge of my own spiritual resources. I was left feeling bewildered. 
I tend to eschew interference with things I do not understand. Some call this extreme risk aversion. Thus I was intrigued with the footage of the numbers of people who filed into the city streets of Charlotte on consecutive nights. Most protested; some were destructive; and still others were curious. What motivated them to assume the risk?
