Is the LAPD Over-Reacting to a Hostile Atmosphere?

Hosted by

The year is only nine months over, but officers of the LAPD have already killed 18 people — as many as in all of 2014. Last Saturday night an unarmed man was killed by officers after the back window of their patrol car was broken out by a beer bottle. Did the dead man throw the bottle? What was the role of a video that led to an official warning that officers on patrol might be in danger?

Also on the program, fraternity and sorority members at UCLA are accused of mocking black culture.
