In the wake of the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York among others, a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll illustrates an unsurprising racial divide in reference to how Americans view policing policies. We’ll examine the issue with our panel of journalists, including the AFRO’s Roberto Alejandro. Plus, we’ll talk to a young Black mother, who is a Baltimore County 911 operator, who allegedly is being harassed by the Baltimore County FOP, because of her social media postings about her anxieties connected to the prospect of her young son encountering overzealous police officers. All coming up this evening on AFRO’s First Edition with Sean Yoes.
