POLICE AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS: CAN THIS RELATIONSHIP BE REPAIRED?
HOT 97 STREET SOLDIERS WITH LISA EVERS DISCUSSES POLICE AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS:
THE FATAL POLICE SHOOTING OF KIMANI GRAY IS TOUCHING A DEEPLY SENSITIVE NERVE WITH OUR AUDIENCE. IT COMES NOT LONG AFTER AN NYPD DETECTIVE WAS CLEARED OF ALL CRIMINAL CHARGES IN THE FATAL SHOOTING OF 22 YEAR OLD UNARMED ARMY RESERVIST, NOEL POLANCO.
SOME BELIEVE COPS ENFORCE THE LAW, BUT ABIDE BY A DIFFERENT SET OF RULES ...AND SOME POLICE OFFICERS FEEL NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO, THE PEOPLE THEY SWORE TO PROTECT AND SERVE DON'T APPRECIATE THEIR WORK, AND HATE THEM FOR NO REASON.
GUESTS: Noel Leader (100 Blacks In Law Enforcement), Kenneth Montgomery (Lawyer Gray Family), Thomas Giovanni (NYU Criminal Justice Professor who can give us perspective and facts about police/community relations, Donnie Williams (A community leader/clergy member who is trying to bring all sides together).
