This is a true story that tells of a poignant experience of a Chicago Public Schools teacher who passively, but sympathetically, observed the abuse of a fellow teacher for months. Then one eventful day, through fate, she becomes a witness to a ruse to arrest the teacher. The teacher asks her to call a friend. While ascertaining the friend's phone number, the witness is also arrested. Both teachers are later exploited by a corrupt legal system that secondarily fostered the outlandish intent of a school system and police department. Through boundless perils of anguish and injustice, the writer becomes more determined to be heard through pen.Heflin, Marie is the author of 'It Is Difficult to Duck Deftly', published 2007 under ISBN 9781425763817 and ISBN 1425763812.
