Santa Monica Policing in the National Spotlight

Hosted by

One of Santa Monica's few black residents has put the city and its police force in the national spotlight. Fay Wells is a college graduate and business professional, whose story went viral. She'll tell us how 19 cops showed up — two with guns drawn — after a white neighbor mistakenly thought she was breaking into her own apartment. Was it racism or good police work in a liberal enclave with a black police chief?

Later on the program, will a crackdown on Waze deprive you of your favorite guide to avoiding traffic congestion?
