One of the positive outcomes of Covid is that to appear on a television show it's as easy as logging into your laptop (and turning on your ring light to put you in the best light LOL). The show Canadian Justice reached out to me asking if we could join them to talk about romance scams. That is subject matter I now know a thing or two about after writing my sister's story in our book Her King the Con: How an Online Love Affair Led to Near Disaster. Our host Christine VanGeyn was very supportive and compassionate in her handling of the questions to my sister. This was a difficult time in our lives, yet Linda's recovery and her desire to help others avoid the pitfalls of online dating, astounds me to this day.
Since the days of slavery, dogs were used to violently chase down escaped men and women who were running for their lives. As Black Americans fought for civil rights, k9 units were used to terrify people protesting or simply walking to school. Today, police dogs have been used during Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests to capture and hold people suspected of committing crimes.
For more background on why police dogs should not be used by law enforcement especially during rallies advocating for the lives of Black Americans, check out my article on Medium Should Police Dog K9 Units be Defunded as an Outcome of Black Lives Matter?
