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?

What Makes A Crime A Hate Crime? When the Fraiser Glen Miller killed two people at the Jewish community Center and another at the Village Shalom Retirement Home in Overland Park a few months ago it quickly became apparent that these murders were motivated by hate. What does that mean when the accused is charged and how does the prosecutor determine what charges to bring? Margot Patterson talks with Mark Potok, a Senior Fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center about the anatomy of a hate crime and why there is such a designation. They talked about the numerous groups that are designated as hate groups and how they got that designation as well as the actions that make a crime a hate crime. The Southern Poverty Law Center is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. Using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy, the Center works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality.
