LAPD Chief Michel Moore apologized for saying the death of George Floyd is on the hands of looters “as much as it is those officers.” Former LAPD sergeant Cheryl Dorsey weighs in on Moore and the department’s response to recent unrest. She also suggests what needs to change. “I think it's important for officers to be able to relate to the people that you're dealing with,” she says.
