#105 Changing Use of Force Law

Postindustrial Criminal Injustice Podcast

Professor Cynthia Lee

In today’s episode:

In the last five years, we’ve seen case after case of police killing unarmed civilians – even people running away. Usually, officers do not face charges; when they do, juries often acquit them. Does the law governing police use of force favor police? Our guest, Professor Cynthia Lee, is one of the leading thinkers on use of force law, and she’ll discuss proposed changes.

“Reforming the Law on Police Use of Deadly Force”
Maryland HB 1121

Professor David Harris and guests take on everything from racial bias to use of force... from surveillance technology to mass incarceration... and from police abuse and misconduct to the astonishing, frequently hilarious misdeeds of "Lawyers Behaving Badly." It's not a lecture hall, and you don't need a law degree to keep up. But you'll walk away from each episode with a deeper understanding of what's wrong with the criminal justice system – and what to do about it.
