40 Futures is a speculative fiction series about the criminal justice system. Duped It had been three days since Timothy Diallo was shot by police. Three days of grief, protest, and tear gas. The public’s vitriol was focused on the police headquarters downtown. In its vicinity, apartment building entrances, restaurants, and even the computer store with its all glass facade were now plywood, tagged with jagged lettering and black silhouettes of Timothy on white paper. The headquarters was barricaded, but those inside awaiting trial could still hear the muffled cries of protestors.
