How can Americans of colour trust the police?

Katty Kay and Carlos Watson discuss police brutality and shooting cases in the US. What needs to change? Last year 1127 people were killed by the American police; most of them were shot. People of colour were disproportionately the victims. Katty and Carlos speak to the civil rights attorney John Burris, who has taken on hundreds of police brutality cases, including most famously the case of Rodney King after he was beaten by LAPD officers in 1991. The second guest is Mecole Jordan-McBride, a community advocacy worker for the Policing Project, which is seeking police reform in Chicago.
