Great show

Fact based and informative.

How’s all that “activism” working out for Austin?

Praises cities and the activists who have driven dramatic police reform. Yet the results have been overwhelming bad for everyone especially black communities. Of course they don’t report on that in this podcast.

I can’t stop talking about Police Unions!

If you’re confused why police are allowed to keep their jobs even after clear, unambiguous murder caught on tape; this will not only answer that, but tell you what you can do it about it. I truly believe the contents of this podcast contain the answer to desperately needed police reform.
