Betrayal in Black

Mark M. Bello

In a fictional Michigan town, a driver is pulled over by the local police. His wife is in the passenger seat—his young children are in the back The man wonders: “What did I do wrong?” The officer asks for I.D.— the concerned driver volunteers that he legally carries a gun. The officer panics—confusion reigns—shots ring out—an innocent man lays bleeding to death and the incident is captured on video. The shooting becomes the national headline—the dead man is black—the shooter is white. A community is thrown into chaos.
