It was a cold night of January of 2018 when Nate was on his way home after a long shift at the restaurant he works. The town was going crazy and there were people out everywhere protesting because a police officer had accidentally killed a woman. Nate was in favor of the protest but he didn’t like the fact that people were using that as an excuse to break in private properties and steal. Since he was on the phone with his girlfriend he did not see when a bunch of guys were coming his way to break in a grocery store. When he saw what they were doing he started yelling so that they could stop but none of them payed attention to him, therefore he decided to continue his way home but the next thing he saw was the area surrounded by police officers and one of them was staring at him with his baton and riot shield, he had never been in jail before but for the way the officer was looking at him he knew he was in trouble. Three hours later, his parents were heading to the town’s police station to get their son out of jail because when Nate tried to tell the officer that he was not part of the robbery, the guy hit him with the baton.
Professor: Jessica Penner
Office Hours: 1 to 2 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I’ll be available through Zoom and will send an invitation through email each week. Try to join my meeting at the start of the hour, not at the end—since I may be talking to other students or have another appointment after the hour is up. If those times don’t work with your schedule, we can schedule a different time. This means you’ll have to schedule an appointment in advance via email.
