By December 10, 2015Don't Shoot, Jaycee Dugard

From Background Briefing with Ian Masters: 

We begin with the firing of Chicago’s Chief of Police by Mayor Rahm Emmanuel only days after they held a joint press conference to announce the release of a videotape of a Chicago police officer shooting 17 year old Laquan McDonald 16 times. Lisa Campbell a 20 year veteran in law enforcement who grew up on the Southside of Chicago in a family of police officers amid a culture of gangs and gang violence, joins us to discuss Mayor Emanuel’s political failure to hold the police accountable while sitting on the incriminating video for 400 days, and the unsung heroes like Father Phleger who works to keep the peace along with Lorenzo Davis who was fired from Chicago’s Independent Police Review Authority for not going along with the cover-up of six police shootings.
