Description

After the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, Paul and Billy examine the systemic racism that is resulting in the deaths of so many black men and women by police in the United States. And they explore how defunding the police could be seen as an opportunity to fix a broken crime solving system and actually solve more serious crimes. Retired LAPD Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey joins to discuss how to fix the problem within police departments around the country. And former prosecutor Loni Coombs joins to discuss the Eric Garner case, and whether there is any other legal recourse that can be taken against the cop who murdered him.

I agree with Jeneen. it's not just blacks that are being killed by police officers. And then again, not all police officers are bad or racist or problem officers.
