After he gets done working at his restaurant job or playing League Of Legends, our 19-year-old son Henry likes to take a walk down to the lake or around our neighborhood to clear his head, listen to music and enjoy the still of the night. 

That’s what he was doing on 48th Street a few blocks from our house last Tuesday night around midnight when a cop car bolted in front of him, jumped the curb and up onto the sidewalk, forcing my boy, a Colombian-American and lifelong citizen of Minneapolis who was wearing jeans, a baseball cap, backpack, and earbuds, to stop in his tracks.
