Police brutality from Baltimore to Ferguson and Oakland is discussed with retired LAPD Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey, who sheds light on why abuse and entitlement have prevented cops from protecting and serving the public. The death of Freddie Gray, reason why Darren Wilson went too far in Ferguson, and underlying trend of ‘shoot first’ has taken hold in modern police departments in America is all discussed. We also learn about her own experience joining the LAPD and her rising through the ranks in a climate that frequently treated her with suspicion, and the complex issues that continue to surround black police officers in this Media Mayhem, hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.
