Why Justice Innovators Resemble Jazz Musicians

Turn on your local nightly news. Pick up the Metro section of your local paper. Several times each week, you’ll see cops and EMTs standing over a body.
Sometimes it will be a shooting victim; sometimes it will be a drug overdose fatality. Sometimes it will be a mental patient who, in a psychotic state, was driven to “suicide-by-cop.”
Cops and EMTs are tired of meeting that way.
Emergency room staffs are tired of greeting the ambulances that bring in the “likely to die” cases whom their frantic medical efforts can’t save.
