In the first of this two-part Reasonably Speaking episode Sherrilyn Ifill (NAACP LDF), Barry Friedman (NYU Law), and John Malcolm (Heritage Foundation) explore the intersection of race and policing in the United States. They discuss the history of race relations in the U.S., and the resulting impact on law enforcement practices as it relates to training programs, police as first responders, and much more.
Listen as these experts, who currently are on the front lines (an advocate and civil rights lawyer, a civil liberties lawyer whose current work is with communities and police departments, and the director of a think tank tasked with increasing government officials’, the media’s, and the public’s understanding of the Constitution and the rule of law), discuss new policing technologies, as well as new theories about public policy that may help shape the future of race and policing.
