Solidarity Conversations - #9 Officer Bo Braxton
Show Notes

While all perspectives have been very unique, thoughtful and amazing in their own right, here is one of the most intriguing ones yet. Why? Have you ever thought about what a "chocolate" (aka black or African American) man who also happens to be a cop feels about George Floyd and police brutality? 

Yes? Buckle up and lean in as I chat with Officer Bo Braxton, an LEO in the metro Atlanta area about 10 days after the murder of George Floyd. We chat about what it's like being a  "chocolate man" who just so happens to be a police officer. This 11 year law enforcement veteran and proud Sigma discusses everything from raising his sons, the affects of George Floyd and the toll of the mental health it's taken on him and fellow officers, his thoughts on how to bridge the gap with the community and even his approach and thoughts on what to do when pulled over.

For such a deep topic, Bo is able to keep it lighthearted at times showing just why he's so respected and loved on social media as one of the "good cops" that's a champion for the people in his community. Connect with him on social media just to see his cop stories, and community events. There are just as many good chuckles as they are thought provoking comments. 

***This episode is marked "Explicit" due to a s word or two, but nothing too vulgar, nor is it often. I do not, and have not edited any guests words but also want to err on the side of caution due to the diversity of you, the incredible listeners!***
