A year after a concerned citizen, Justine Damond, rang the police and was shot and killed. Shot by a policeman who answered the poor innocent woman’s call. We wait to see what will happen. A year on, the wait drags on.

The Muffled Sound Of A Distant Report.

It has been one long year Since Justine was gunned down
By a fine upstanding officer and upholder of the law,
Enquiries by the Minneapolis Police plod painfully on in ol’ Fulton Town;
This time the Police don’t seem keen on being quick on the draw.

Justine’s long-suffering family’s impatience is beginning to show,
The Police cop-out has struck a bloody raw nerve,
It seems the wheels of justice in Minneapolis grind exceedingly slow
When its expedient to protect those who protect and serve.
