To my Brother in Arms. David Whitt

As I reflect on these past three years, it’s often hard to see where we are, where we are heading, and where we came from.

But today I see so much clarity both in what we have accomplished together, and apart. David when I met you in Ferguson, I couldn’t conceive what was about to happen. Who would have ever imagined that we could effectively kick racist police out of your neighborhood using video cameras.

Who would have ever thought that we would help bring copwatch to the people, and the communities that needed it the most.

From Ferguson, to Oakland, to Baltimore, to NYC, to Standing Rock, I thank you and am forever grateful for taking this journey with me.

We’ve sacrificed everything, and we’ve lost so much.
But I think about how large our family has grown, how many people have joined this struggle and stood with us.

We’ve been targeted, surveilled, even infiltrated by police provocateurs, yet here we are today. Stronger than ever. It did’t start with us, and certainly won’t end with us either. But I love you. You are my Brother, and have been one of the most important contributors in this struggle.

Thank you David. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Jacob Crawford/WeCopwatch
