How More Policing Leads To Greater Unrest

think.kera.org 1

The last year has seen its share of protests against policing. History shows, however, that protests actually usually lead to more policing. Elizabeth Hinton is an associate professor of history and African American studies at Yale and a professor at Yale Law School. She joins host Krys Boyd to discuss why the word “riot” is a racist trope and masks a long arm of history of over policing and neighborhood crackdowns. Her book is “America on Fire: The Untold History of Police Violence and Black Rebellion Since the 1960s.”
