By Virginia Davis - After being charged with hindering a police investigation and resisting arrest Sept. 21, Eric and Jodi Garbison of Cherith Brook Catholic Worker came to trial at Municipal Court in KC MO March 2. Jodi told supporters before the trial, “We hope and pray that today exposes and sheds light on the absurdity of the actions by police—the aggression and violence toward our particular community this past year and in our neighborhood.”
PeaceWorks Board member Joseph Wun was caught in a crowd by police for looking suspicious—for being a person of color, being young, and having a backpack. He still feels embarrassed at not being prepared for the incident. He also offers advice.
