Last week was the anniversary of me being called into the police station in Stamford for questioning because a white girl felt uncomfortable and jumped out of my vehicle, I didn't think much of it at the time. I reported the incident to Uber incase there was any black lash or claims of injury submitted to the insurance company; after a conversation with a friend who's an attorney, I was left with my jaw hanging. Brenda asked "Why did you go into the station with out an attorney?" I said: "I just wanted to get it over with." Why did I say that? In my mind, I figured I didn't do anything wrong so I didn't have anything to hide.
Brenda was sharing her 20 plus years of experience with me and it helped to shape the direction in which I'll take the trailer I submitted to the PRX Google Podcaster Program. Brenda asked if I just want to get through the episodes or do I take the time to do research, edit produce and secure guest for the show, the answer is NO! No, I don't rush through the process. Brenda, said thats exactly why so many people are hemmed up in the legal system today, because they just wanted to get through it.
