S3E21 / Gun Violence in America / Law & Order? IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH with Dr. Celine Gounder

    • Science & Medicine

Cops are supposed to enforce laws, reduce crime, and make communities safer. But what happens when cops don’t make people feel safe? When people don’t trust the police? When cynicism about the legal system sets in? And when, as in the case of the Baltimore Gun Trace Task Force, the cops are criminals? Guests: Daniel Webster, Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Director of the Center for Gun Policy and Research, and TEDMED 2014 speaker; Justin Fenton, crime reporter for The Baltimore Sun and author of the upcoming book We Own This City; Cassandra Crifasi, Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Deputy Director of the Center for Gun Policy and Research, and a law-abiding gun owner; Andrew Papachristos, Professor of Sociology at Northwestern University; and Ekow Yankah, Professor of Law and Criminal Theory at Yeshiva University's Cardozo Law School. | insicknessandinhealthpodcast.com
