Weymouth, Massachusetts shaken after officer, bystander both shot and killed

The top story in the Boston Globe today is that a police officer and a local woman were shot and killed Sunday after a 20-year-old man allegedly crashed a car, attacked the officer, stole his gun, and used it to shoot both victims. The suspect is in custody and expected to be arraigned on Monday.
There is far too much violence in our communities.
My uncle and cousin are police officers in Toledo, Ohio, and this is so tragic.
The “violence-industrial complex” continues to take innocent victims.
It is either nonviolence or nonexistence, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr taught us.

Going along with the theme of non-violence and active, non-violent resistance, here’s a recording of Paul Barnes, playing Philip Glass’s Satyagraha.
