Thank you to Intelligence Squared for hosting us on January 11th the topic whether policing is racially biased.  “In 2014, the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, set off a wave of protests and sparked a movement targeting racial disparities in criminal justice. How have recent incidents shaped our view of policing? Does crime drive law enforcement’s use of force, or is there racial bias?”  The debate featured:
