    Hey Tyler, first I would like to tell you how proud of you I am. How you are a true role model. It has been sometime since I have wrote you an update... To refresh your memory, my name is Tiffoney Hayes, I grew up in Wendell NC and lived in the same house as a grown woman. I have 3 children. I married the wrong man, well, really it was never legal because I signed the wrong name on the marriage certificate but that's a story for another time and place. Yesterday, I sat down at the kitchen table with my daughter, my youngest son and her boyfriend. I am still waiting for my oldest son, Montana, but I have faith. You see, I left that man that did not treat us well back in 2011, I became homeless, and had to make the decision for the state to take my 3 children because of the uncertainty of what I was going to endure. At that time in my life I did not know about resources, homeless shelters, and never knew anyone who was homeless. Shoot Tyler, I has never rode a city bus before in my life. I came to Raleigh with nothing but the clothes on my back and my pocketbook. Everything I had acquired in my life was gone. I fought 4 years through homelessness just me and my Lord. Was considered chronically homeless. It's funny how you find out who cares and who doesn't when unfortunate circumstances occur such as that. Well, I was alone, just me and my Lord. I had an apartment in Raleigh for 6 years alone.I was so hurt and distraught Meanwhile over my children that I had to undergo intensive therapy, anger management, depression, Suicidal Tendencies oh, and I even tried to do a suicide by cop in the end of 2012.The magnitude of emotional abuse and pain engulfed me to the point of total mental deterioration. I had nobody. Nobody in my family, nobody except my Lord. When I tell you, that my mother went on a cruise with my money while my children were in foster care and I was homeless. Oh there's a lot that I've had to forgive her for but I have not allowed her in my life presently. She ended up, after me repeatedly begging her to get my children out of foster care. The two youngest ones, she had Montana the oldest son. The time goes by within a 6 years of me being in my apartment. She gets my kids, I helped her do it because I would know where they are or where they were going to be, so I thought. I was begging and pleading, bending over backwards, accepting a lot of disrespect a lot of belittling, a lot of abuse just to be able to see my children. Let me tell you this, the only time in my entire life. I was invited to my little brother Kris's house for Thanksgiving, mind you this was only the second time that I had seen all of my children since everything happen. Tyler, when I tell you that my little brother walk around with a pistol in his pocket because I was at Thanksgiving. Yes sir that happened. She dangled my children over my head. Okay so years past, and ended up losing my biological father in 2016 I did not get my inheritance money. They were so greedy which I didn't expect anything different. Years past. I put myself back to school, working, but most of all Lovin a god who was always with me. No matter who was against me and it was a lot of them for no reason. Who gave me the courage to stand up by myself and fight for my children in court alone, to fight to get my license back, representing myself on 8 charges. Meanwhile, I was volunteering helping the homeless. Sometimes I would think about something you said a long time ago, it's only temporary, those three words made such a profound impact on my mentality and was so empowering to me that it helped me move forward whether you know it or not. I want to say thank you for that. Okay back to what I am trying to tell you. After many years of not being allowed at my mother's house or being allowed to see my children , I received a phone call, they were asking me if I wanted my youngest son. Of course! Kind of question is that? But anyway, I had to go get him before they put him back into foster care. Once I got him home, when I spoke with his therapist on the phone, I am being told that my son had been in and out of foster care this whole time. Come to find out, that my daughter had been in and out of foster care this whole time, come to find out that my oldest son aged out foster care. She would not allow me over there, she changed their names! Lord Tyler, there is so much I want to tell you!!!!! I'll keep this brief. She got remarried again this man slanders me and only met him once. To him I am nothing but a picture on the wall, anyway I am getting off topic. Sorry. I've got my youngest son now and I moved back home to Zebulon NC. My daughter is in my life. I work, I transport disabled children to and from school every day Monday through Friday and still work at the homeless shelter on the weekends. I have a law suit against the apartment complex where I lived for 6years. I am praying enough for a house comes out of it... Then, I am going after a few of these foster parents that had my children. For the way that they treated my kids. I'm trying to get last names and once I get this last names... I thought I made the right decision for the state to take to take them the after finding out what they went through in foster care. Goodness gracious, I'm definitely going after them. As bad as I wanted my children, as much hurt as I went through, as much pain as the Lord brought me out of, I still have the remnants, missing my children's lives. I missed parts of their life. My mother. What she has done to us and then tries to rectify it somewhere in her mind. Foster care is foster care, I don't care if they have therapeutic in front of it behind it, or all around it, it is still foster care.. and I wanted them so much in my life yes I'm a single parent, I know I'm not perfect, but I don't set out to do anybody harm and I believe in my God. I think I'm going to just leave it right here there's so much more I could tell you. Thank you for saying those words a long time ago. Never stop being an inspiration. Never stop doing what you do Tyler. Thank youđŸŒčâš˜đŸŒ·đŸŒŒđŸŒ»đŸ’ Tiff...

    No one hates a Police Officer because they are a police officer. We are ANGRY at the rate of violence and unaccountability that happens within the profession. That was an absurd insert - it was weird and inappropriate to throw a choice of profession with violent members into actual marginalized communities where people are harmed or murdered for how they were born. I am actually shocked. I know he meant well, but that small moment was a gut punch. He should have entered that subject differently instead of camouflaging it - that was apples and oranges. There is no “middle ground” when people are trying to save their lives. This was weird.
