"Failed Evidence: Why Law Enforcement Resists Science"

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with David A. Harris, professor of Law at the University of Pittsburgn about his book "Failed Evidence: Why Law Enforcement Resists Science."

With the popularity of crime dramas like CSI focusing on forensic science, and increasing numbers of police and prosecutors making wide-spread use of DNA, high-tech science seems to have become the handmaiden of law enforcement. But this is a myth,asserts law professor and nationally known expert on police profiling David A. Harris. In fact, most of law enforcement does not embrace science—it rejects it instead, resisting it vigorously. The question at the heart of this book is why.

Why Civil Resistance Works

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Erica Chenoweth, co-author with Maria Stephan of "Why Civil Resistance Works: The Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict."

Erica Chenoweth and Maria Stephan maintain that successful nonviolent resistance ushers in more durable and internally peaceful democracies, which are less likely to regress into civil war. They debunk the myth that violence occurs because of structural and environmental factors and that it is necessary to achieve certain political goals. Instead, they say violent insurgency is rarely justifiable on strategic grounds.

Ersatz Chats: The sight bits & sound “bites” of social networking

We spend so much time imitating communication; social networking sites do promote contact...sometimes as the end itself. But do they really promote connection, community, communion with another person? Is social networking a conversation without context? Was that great 20th century philosopher James Brown (a.k.a. The Godfather) presciently, prophetically on point...that we are a culture "talking loud and saying nothing"? Join Cecil Prescod and myself, Celeste Carey as we muse over the demise of face-to-face social interaction and blame social networking sites .

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
