    "But to Stephanie McCurry, a historian of the civil war and Reconstruction era at Columbia University in New York, Triplett’s death acquired a deeper resonance by occurring in the midst of national civil unrest over the killing by Minneapolis police of George Floyd, an African American man."

    Disgusting how this 'Stephanie McCurry person' used her death to highlight the riots.

    "Each month, Triplett collected $73.13 from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA), a total of $877.56 a year."

    No cost-of-living adjustments over all those years?

    Guess not. Maybe it was enough to pay her water bill
