> The story of Isaac Woodard is tragic, but unfortunately is not one of

> discharged, Isaac Woodard was attacked by South Carolina police while
> still in his uniform when taking the bus home and was left permanently
> blind. The officers were acquitted by an all white jury.
> PBS will be highlighting this story and giving us a chance to
> pre-screen and comment on Mr. Woodard's story this coming Monday
> evening, March 29. See below for details.
> Refer to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Woodard for a brief
> accounting of his life.
> Please pass this on to anyone you feel would be interested. I got
> this from a PBS e-mail listserv, not from a blindness-oriented source.
