Foto: Officer "Ramirez" stands guard

A picture is worth a thousand words and the one above speaks for itself. The still image comes from a video taken earlier this year from Phoenix as hundreds rallied and marched on April 25, eventually blocking ICE and the streets the same day the Supreme court heard 1070. So what happens when a Ramirez, Rodriguez, Castillo, Cortes, Rodriguez, de Leon, etc. confront "their own people?" They knew where they were going. This is an incredible shot that captures so many emotions. Would you go stand guard as an officer fully knowing your family could be in the protesting crowd? Do you quit your job? Something we can't answer until we are actually put in the position.
