Rachel Lee & Molly Bloom: Interventions

The image of the police officer playing connect 4 with the young boy in touching. I want to relish in this captured moment in which male police officers and the boy (who is normally the subject of policing) have a moment of intimate connection. It is almost a representation of a father-son moment in which the police officer has the opportunity to have fun with a young boy, while also teaching him something about life. However, despite the egalitarian nature of this image, the statistics on the right show the actual inequality of the relationship between the police force and the public school child who, one might imagine, could be interrogated by the police officer without the child's parents even knowing about it.
