WHEN COPS KILL

On Today’s show we look at the issue of police violence and police killing from the point of view of the officer. Our guest will talk about how law enforcement deals with threatening situations, how they assess safety in those situations and why they use deadly force.

Host Keith Brown El talks with Lance LoRusso, an attorney, former law enforcement officer, and author of the book, WHEN COPS KILL: THE AFTERMATH OF A CRITICAL INCIDENT TAKES YOU THROUGH AN OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING AND THE YEARS AFTER. Mr LoRusso is an attorney for officers whose actions are under investigation by the authorities and the public. Many will see him as defending the indefensible while many others will see him as defending heroes of law and order.
Some of the issues covered in his book are:
What does it mean to be sued as a law enforcement officer?
What will happen during the internal affairs investigation?
Should you speak with the homicide division?
Will the state licensing agency investigate as well?
How will you handle the media coverage and public attention?

Nation Inside and Second Chance

We recently ran across a request for formerly incarcerated citizens to call in and record their stories of searching for a job with a conviction. This request came from Nation Inside – Powering Campaigns for Justice.

Nation Inside is a platform that connects and supports people who are building a movement to systematically challenge mass incarceration in the United States. Nation Inside is a community of people dedicated to changing the U.S. criminal justice system by using our collective voices to
spark public dialogue about criminal justice, educating policy makers and
develop strategies for safer and healthier communities. You can find them at http://nationinside.org/ or to listen to some of the stories gathered by Nation Inside go to https://nation_inside.creatavist.com/story/9794

Host Allie Catherine Bush will talk to a representative of Nation Inside about their advocacy and training opportunities as well as Debra Neal of the Second Chance program here in the metropolitan KC area.

The Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission, with a mission of public safety, launched the Second Chance Program in October of 2008. Unique in this area, the program offers leadership and work that organizes the entire metro social service community to reduce recidivism and support of Missouri Probation & Parole by providing direct service work to connect high risk returning offenders to services.
