Two journalists have spent the last several years working in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, meticulously documenting what happens (or does not happen) when the internal affairs department of the local police department receives complaints about the excessive use of force. Daryl Khan and Clarissa Sosin joined Errol Louis for an in-depth look at their five-part series chronicling their investigative work that came in the wake of the 2016 death of Alton Sterling after he was shot and killed by two police officers. They discussed how they got involved in a story 1,000 miles from home, how local news has national resonance and what they see in the future for the Baton Rouge Police Department.
