A Progress Report on California Cops

Hosted by

A new poll from the Public Policy Institute of California found that a solid majority of adults think their police departments are doing an excellent or good job. But among ethnic minorities there's a sharp divide. Most whites, Latinos and Asians give local police high marks, but only 36 percent of black respondents do. KCRW's Steve Chiotakis spoke to Joe Mathews, California columnist for Zocalo Public Square, and LA Times reporter Jill Leovy, author of the new book Ghettoside: A True Story of Murder in America, on the issue of police relations.
