By trends and were within. Minnesota law so that the actual usage this morning this to humanize and give us. Humble perspective. This man who's there it goes beyond that the struggles by a police car or in the unit in the in the in the next. It's really try and give him. The voice frankly for who he was as a human being did you continue and to focus on who he wants action center which when we were gonna you're crucial and or shall I don't commercial press writer.
