Where Do We Go from Here? On the Hiring of the Burlington Police Chief Part 2 07/31/2015

Host Genevieve Jacobs is joined by Ron Jacobs, Writer and Library Worker, to discuss Burlington city governance needs to show accountability and responsiveness to the concerns of residents, particularly minority groups, in their appointing of new chief of police who comes from two feared cultures : The NYPD and the CIA Intelligence fields.

How does one change and humanize "culture"?
