"Community Matters" - SPECIAL EDITION - "21st Century Policing" ~~ Tonight we'll examine the comments in an Opinion article that appeared in the New York Times last week, "How Community Policing Can Work" by Charlie Beck (LAPD Chief of Police) and Connie Rice (civil rights lawyer), both from Los Angeles. They note the following: "After the recent murders of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, and the devastating videos of the shooting deaths of black men like Alton B. Sterling and Philando Castile, the future of police-community relations in cities all over America hangs in the balance. But even as the country is still reeling from these traumas, this is no time for despair." Among other things, the article refers to the important FINAL REPORT from Pres Barack Obama's Task Force on 21st Century Policing. ~~ Bill Murray, our host, is also the well-respected community voice of public safety, violence prevention and a leader in anti-child abuse and trauma efforts. He's the founder of both LA Community Policing (LACP.org) and the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA.org). ~~ "Where is the UNITY in 'community' these days?," Bill asks. "Unless we can learn to set aside our differences and start paying attention to how shockingly similar our experiences, feelings and actions are we'll not make progress."
