Darnell Shackleford Quotes in All American Boys
My dad, my dad, had paralyzed an unarmed kid, a black kid, and I had had no

But to that kid––and now my head was reeling––to that kid, my dad was no different than Officer Galluzzo. Another trigger-happy cop who was quick to assume and even quicker to shoot.
