Chauvin Verdict: A catalyst for Police Reform in America?

On this edition of Encounter, Chuck Wexler, Executive Director of the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) and Ron Harris, professor of journalism at Howard University and co-author of the book: “The Black and the Blue,” talk with host Carol Castiel about whether the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, for the murder of George Floyd last May will catalyze systemic reform in policing in America by not only enacting legislation such as the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, but also by addressing training, recruitment, and excessive use of force against minorities and changing the culture of policing from a warrior to a guardian/public-security model.
