Growing back pushing

Against the tide… over at Cone’s place, in response to a Roch Smith, Jr. comment, a fellow name of ‘william’ says this, emphatically, about line-up books that are kept in black binders… “The fact remains that there was no photographic line up or line ups of any white officers, even though Sanders states the victim said that [...]
