Episode 61 - Policing The Police

On Episode 61, the crew is joined by Police Officer, Robert Johnson. With the social media boom, police perception in the eye of the public has taken a dangerous turn. We felt that this was the perfect time to bring in a Police Officer to speak in depth about what happens within the Police Force. Officer Johnson is an officer of the law but a black man before anything. He's ingrained in the black community of his city and doesn’t ignore issues such as police brutality and unfair discrimination against black people and minorities. We touch on important topics such as holding policemen accountable, the conversations within the walls of the police department, bias vs ignorance, knowing your rights during police encounters, Systematic and systemic racism, the Blue Wall of Silence, Black Lives Matter, and so much more!Intro Music: Sonny Brew - We Just Still
