    I do not propose to speak for Police Chief Harlean Carter when she was quoted as saying that “perception is reality.” Yet, I inferred her statement to mean that what one perceives becomes reality to him or her even though this perception may – or may not be – based on objective truth. If my inference of her meaning is correct, then I also agree with her.
