Did this encounter carve out a new template for cultural renaissance?
On a bus in Boston: in the presence of (because of?) the ubiquity and transparency of social media via cell phone videos, this cop listened to bystanders and bystanders united to connect to both cop and the one the cop was trying to control without siding with one or the other! I find the possible new cultural template created by this cohesive, ultimately coherent and harmonizing group experience truly astonishing. YES!
