Tonight's show will spotlight the many problems that exist within the Fort Worth Police Department. This department is currently under fire for a leaked video showing Fort Worth police officer William Martin assaulting Jacqueline Craig and her 2 daughters. They are also taking heat for the demotion of two high-ranking African American police officers accused of leaking this video. Lastly, they are currently under fire because the case of FWPD officer Courtney Johnson was declared a mistrial. Johnson shot Craigory Adams in 2015 after allegedly recklessly handling his shotgun.However, Craigory Adams accuses the officer of using racial slurs during the encounter.

The Fort Worth Police Department is the same police department that has harassed this host since 2011 after Center Stage covered the FWPD shooting that took the life of Charal "Rah Rah" Thomas. Chief Joel Fitzgerald has refused to meet with me since he became chief despite the many emails and phone calls that I have made to both him and Mayor Betsy Price. The FWPD has even gotten Dallas PD to assist with the harassment.

My guest is Rod Smith spokesperson for the Jacqueline Craig family. PLEASE FAST FORWARD TO 13:30 IN THE SHOW, WE UNFORTUNATELY HAD TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES UP UNTIL THAT POINT.
