We explore the controversial topic of voter suppression in this episode. We’ll take a look at the various forms of voter suppression dating back to the founding of our country up until the present time. We’ll investigate the various laws that on the surface were portrayed as a method of preserving the integrity of our voting system but in reality were tied to the ever present but rarely proven fear of voter fraud.
We dive deep into the current voter suppression techniques employed today that are designed to manipulate, inconvenience and disenfranchise a large portion of the voting public. We’ll discuss the corrupt, racist and anti-democratic motivations for such schemes and how they are eroding our political system.
Finally we’ll look to the future of voter suppression and the impact it will have on our country as a whole. All in an attempt to educate the voting public. Because if there’s one thing politicians fear it’s an informed, educated and motivate block of voters who are immune to the tried and true manipulative techniques that all politicians employ to gain themselves political office.
In the wake of the death of George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks and so many other minorities at the hands of police we take a look at the concept of deadly force. We’ll explore what deadly force is by looking at the legal standard for deadly force. We will explore the authority invested in police to use force, when that use of force can be escalated and the rules around how and when police can use force.
We’ll examine the Use of Force Continuum and explore the lack of a centralized set of standards for police within the United States and how that in combination with varying local laws can lead to abuse of police authority. We’ll explore the inconsistent and decentralized training of police throughout the country. We will examine laws that have been on the books for years that were designed to shield rogue elements of the police force from public scrutiny.
We have a broken system of law enforcement in this country today that is resulting in deadly outcomes far more frequently then it should. We’ll explore some of these break downs in the system and we’ll also look at changes that are happening now thanks to the sacrifices of individuals like Eric Garner, George Floyd, Rayshard Books and many more. A change is need, and a change is happening now with more reforms and consequences to come.
