Is it possible that we’ll see a world without police?
To kick off the show this week, Lee sat down with criminologist Alex Vitale, author of ‘The End Of Policing.’ In light of the news that the NYPD officer who killed Eric Garner will not face charges, people need to start questioning whether it’s fine that the police seem to be able to murder people without seeing repercussions. Alex Vitale has spent his career doing research into police brutality and has written about an interesting solution: community policing.
In the second half of the show, Lee talks to standup comedian Krish Mohan. Mohan is a political comedian, similar to Lee, and they both mine the dark depths of social dysfunction, bigotry, state violence, and censorship of their material. These topics evoke a variety of responses from their audiences during the discussion. Some people are happy to hear their realities reflected in comedy, and others are enraged to hear their worldviews questioned.
