    47 Alameda Co Sheriff Deputies On Leave For Failed Psych Evals w/ James Burch from APTP & Jose Bernal from the Ella Baker Center

    47 Alameda Co Sheriff Deputies On Leave For Failed Psych Evals w/ James Burch from APTP & Jose Bernal from the Ella Baker Center

    In this episode, we dive into this week’s breaking local story about the violence of the Alameda County Sheriff Department – this is the department that oversees Santa Rita County Jail as well as a variety of other policing activities in the county.
    Forty-seven Alameda County sheriff deputies have been relieved of their duties after an internal audit revealed they had failed psychological exams required to be an officer. Some of the deputies had failed as far back as 2016 but were allowed to continue working. This revelation comes as a result of an investigation into a sheriff deputy murdering a couple in their home the previous week – that deputy was allegedly having an affair with a woman in that couple.
    We are joined by James Burch of the Anti-Police Terror Project and then by Jose Bernal with the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights to discuss.

    Colonial legacy of Queen Elizabeth II w/ Vijay Prashad

    Colonial legacy of Queen Elizabeth II w/ Vijay Prashad

    The United Kingdom’s Queen Elizabeth II, head of the British monarchy for more than 70 years, died on September 8th. Elizabeth became the Queen in February of 1952, and in the ensuing 70+ years of her life, ruled over a worldwide colonial monarchy. 
    In today’s episode, we explore the colonial impact of the 70+ years that Elizabeth was queen, and the movements around the world that fought for – and in some cases are still working toward – independence from the UK.
    We speak with one of the world’s experts on decolonization movements in the past century. Vijay Prashad is a historian and writer, and the executive director of the Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research.
