In this episode, we welcome distinguished professor, journalist, and commentator David A. Love to discuss American policing: the history of law enforcement in America, the police as an occupying force, and the desperate need to transform racist and violent policing. We talk about the use of mental health professionals and social workers instead of police, diversity training, the protests in Portland, the death penalty, and much, much more.
