“For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
- Newton’s Third Law of Motion
Black & Blue is Tommy Holt’s invaluable personal insight and reaction to the sensationalized news headlines, “Police Shoot Unarmed Black Man.” Holt provides thought-provoking conversations and personal stories of walking on both sides of the “thin blue line.” With over a decade of law enforcement experience, Holt offers historical narratives and research on the implementation of the first organized police force created over 200 years ago. Tommy is doing his part to ease racial tensions, injustice and mistreatment of police interactions with African- Americans. Holt strongly believes that if his Come Home S.C.H.O.O.L. approach is utilized, it will save the lives of both citizens and police officers.
