Black Men are being beaten and killed by cops all across the nation. Many of them are young men who are just starting their lives and are already disadvantaged.

Empowering our youth will help them make better decisions when dealing with the police, but also help them to avoid situations where the police have to be involved.

Empowering our youth also means providing them with the tools to interact with police that will decrease the chances of a negative outcome.

Police must be held accountable for their actions, but our youth must also be given tools to help them understand how to interact with police.

This week on "The Bridge" Radio, Special Guest Lloyd Scott will share his experience as an LAPD officer and take us inside proactive interaction with cops and ways to empower our youth.

Scott is a Christian Minister and a 26 year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department. Fifteen of those years were spent as a Gang Intervention Liaison, developing and implementing the city's gang intervention program. Observing the dangers young men of color face, he now focuses on uplifting and restoring youth through empowerment methods, including directing them to services available to them. He also provides key information on interacting with police, so that youth can navigate their way through police interactions with the goal of more positive and safe exchanges.
