After the death of George Floyd last May, Minnesota became ground zero for the debate over police reform and policies involving use of deadly force in particular. While a number of new state laws and policies have gone into effect, law enforcement experts are watching to see if the changes will be successful. Can these changes rebuild trust between police and communities of color while also providing officers with the protection they need to engage with dangerous suspects?
In this episode of [Un]Common Law we explore those questions with Arthur Ago, a former public defender and director of the Criminal Justice Project at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and Bloomberg Law’s midwest correspondent, Stephen Joyce.
