Community-police relations after Ferguson, Garner decisions

Listen

Guests: Solomon Jones, J. Scott Thomson, Dwayne Royster

Between the grand jury decision to not indict Darren Wilson for the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the grand jury decision not to indict Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York, many Americans are upset and dismayed over these perceived injustices. Today on Radio Times we talk about the current state of police-community relations in America and in our region, with author, columnist, and radio host SOLOMON JONES, and with Camden County Police Chief J. SCOTT THOMSON. We’ll also be joined by DWAYNE ROYSTER, founding pastor of Living Water United Church of Christ and the executive director of P.O.W.E.R., an organization devoted to racial justice.
