A Black Police Officer Reacts

Hosted by

Officials have identified Micah Johnson as the sniper who killed five police officers and wounded seven others Thursday night at a demonstration in downtown Dallas. Johnson was eventually killed by police. Earlier this week, videos of two black men being shot and killed by cops in Baton Rouge and Minnesota went viral. It has been a week of violence and racial tension across the nation, and amid it all, black police officers are in a delicate position.
