American Reckoning

With headlines and history being made in Minneapolis, police officer Derek Chauvin is on trial for the murder of citizen George Floyd. So is the American legal system--and America itself. Do we believe in JUSTICE or JUST US? Is an African American man (Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Eric Garner, Elijah McClain), woman (Sandra Bland, Eleanor Bumpers), or child (Michael Brown, Tamir Rice) safe at the hands of police and legal systems nationwide? That’s the question. This week on the show: the filmmakers of "American Trial: The Eric Garner Story" — Roee Messinger, director; Ralph Richardson, co-executive producer —and Esaw Snipes, the widow of Eric Garner. http://bit.ly/ja-garner #law #lawandorder #lawenforcement #veterans #legal #politics #society #defundthepolice #BLM #blmmovement #humanrights #civilrights #votingrights #BlackHistory #BlackLivesMatter #EricGarner #ElijahMcClain #TamirRice
