Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes David Putnam, retired cop turned author.
During his law enforcement career, David Putnam worked primarily in California on teams for Patrol, Investigations, SWAT, Narcotics, Violent Crimes, Criminal Intelligence, Internal Affairs, Detective Bureau and as child protective services coordinator. He rounded out his law enforcement career with a few years in the Hawaiian Islands as a Special Agent-part of a real-life "Hawaii-50″ team. He's now retired from law enforcement and spends his time growing organic California avocados and writing, with his wife Mary and their three dogs. On his inspiration: "I was working a surveillance out in Lucerne Valley, flat desolate desert. We were watching a meth lab. When not on point, the chase cars could to do what they wanted, as long as we were immediately available to the radio in case the suspect went mobile. Some detectives watched portable TVs in their cars, some played softball and others just hung out. I always kept five or six books in my backseat for these types of investigations. I came down to my last novel and started to read it. It didn’t hold my attention. I thought: “I can do better!” So with a yellow pad and pencil I penned my first four novels, and found it much more difficult that I’d thought.

Discussion on the Republican debate and great interview with former LAPD officer Alez Salazar who is now traveling America raising awareness on Police brutality issues. He shares first hand reports from LAPD in the late 80's early 90's with extensive details on institutional racism and how it affected him.
We also dispell two myths about Reagan, with some interesting life history from our very own Joel Gardner. Lots going on in the news we discuss, from clock-bomb scares to referee attacks (just following orders- lol) - we cover all the important news.
The Gist of Freedom is pleased to welcome Arthur Browne, author of One Righteous Man:Samuel Battle and the Shattering of the Color Line in New York!

In his latest book, Browne — who currently serves as the Daily News editorial page editor — presents a biography of New York City’s first African-American police officer. Based on an unfinished manuscript by Langston Hughes and Browne’s own research, “One Righteous Man” tells the story of Samuel Battle’s groundbreaking rise through the ranks of the NYPD, a decades-long odyssey that is both the story of one man’s unwavering dedication to racial progress and a harbinger of the divisions between police and the communities they serve that plague America today.
What are the consequences when public servants, employed by the taxpayers, violate the public's trust? The city of Chicago erupted in protest over the Thanksgiving weekend after the release of the dashcam video graphically showing the killing of 17 year old Laquan McDonald by police officer Jason Van Dyke in 2014. For an entire year, this video has been withheld, and with its court ordered release came a series of questions as to who was involved in the coverup. Young Laquan, a ward of the State, should have received more care, support, and intervention, it seems, rather than to be shot to death for carrying a knife with which he allegedly was puncturing car tires. Illinois State Representative Mary Flowers joins us today to discuss the many levels of official misconduct that need to be addressed by elected officials as well as the voting public, in holding those accountable who violate the public trust. Can new laws and new regulations protect citizens from police abuse? Should the entire police force be scrapped and all forced to re-apply? Should mandatory psychological exams be instituted before an officer is hired? How do we weed out those who have already racked up complaints for excessive force, before they kill someone else
A Police Day” which takes place on SA, September 19, 2015. Here’s the deal, give every law enforcement officer a roll of Blue LifeSavers, as part of Police Supporter “Project Blue Life Saver.” The reason is because blue is the color most representative of police officers and they are literally "life savers". So, hand a blue role of LifeSavers (Pep O Mint) to any police officer, deputy sheriff, state trooper, Game Warden, FBI Special Agent or any publicly funded law enforcement officer with the power of arrest and tell him/her "THANK YOU." That's it! It would be nice if you can get media coverage, since any good press concerning law enforcement is great! Also, post images on FB Police Supporter and Police Talk Radio. We’ll take other callers with open discussion on any topic related to the police function. Our chat room is opened to interact with others from the Police Supporter and Police Talk Radio family. So, buckle-up and join us for an informative, entertaining and energetic Police Talk Radio ride.
Is the Police State Preparing for War With U.S. Citizens? Why are there so many Police Officers murdering us when we are at an all time low of crime? Why is this episode not as humious as the previous ones?
Recently various city officials in Chicago effectiveness as leaders have been questioned once a judge ordered the release of a video tape showing a young man being shot 16 times by a police officer. Since the release of this video many are left with many questions.....
Things to consider:
What did Mayor Rahm Emanuel know and why was the decision made to settle with the family?
What does this case reveal to us about the leadership of Chicago?
What could city officials have done differently in the case of Laquan Mcdonald?
Join the conversation......
It's time to revisit the controversial topic of "Police Brutality" with a focus on the young lady from SC who was choked and slammed by school Police Officer Ben Fields who was placed on leave pending the outcome of the investigation. It Just Got Real!

Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving, while many did so in fear. Today there are many protests planned in major shopping areas. What effect do these protests have on the general population and our police? Does the distraction that they create in a crowded mall provide for a perfect oppotunity for terrorists? Fox News is reporting that the FBI have 48 ISIS subjects under constant surveillance in an effort to twart a 'Paris style' attack.
How is all of this behavior affecting our police officers and policies today? Join in our discussion with author of 'Micheal Brown Jr. Didn't Have to Die', Ken Dye.
