Police abuse

Dan Handelman of Portland Copwatch on Police Violence & Militarism

program date: 
Mon, 08/03/2015
Bill Resnick talks with Dan Handelman of Portland CopWatch. They consider two aspects of police conduct -- their use of violence and shooting, and their militarization -- and the extent to which the police have responded to criticism by community reform groups as well as local and federal investigations of their conduct. Dan suggests that although there is more public attention to police violence, it has neither increased nor diminished in recent years, and discusses the excessive weaponry and the role of various branches including the Joint Terrorism Task Force, the Red Squad, and the Gang Enforcement Squad.
