Description

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. Across the nation, police culture is increasingly a tool of oppression rather than service and protection of community as a whole. How do we shift this consciousness? How does one change and humanize "culture"?
