BISR Live: Policing, Protest, and Politics

In this edition of BISR Live, BISR faculty Ajay Singh Chaudhary, Nara Roberta Silva, and Patrick Blanchfield gather to discuss the context, dynamics, and possible futures of the nationwide riots and protests now taking place in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Why has Floyd’s killing proved a kind of tipping point? Are police departments effectively beyond municipal control? What’s the purpose of distinguishing protestors as “good” and “bad”? What are the political possibilities of the present moment? (The conversation gets underway at the 5:30 mark.)
