1/16 10a Think Tank, policing and racial tensions

Will the tensions between minorities and police ever be resolved? A majority of police officers in the country say recent high-profile fatal encounters between black citizens and police officers have made their jobs riskier and aggravated tensions. That's the result of a new Pew Research Center study. The survey also found that 72% of officers say their department is now less willing to stop and ask questions of suspicious persons. An overwhelming majority say police work is harder today. Do you trust police? Would you ever wanna be one? Guest host Dave Cohen was joined by Donovan Livaccari, Attorney with the Fraternal Order of Police and Kim Parker, Director of Social Trends Research at Pew Research Center to discuss policing and racial tensions.
