The latest on the police reform movement


There are gray skies in Memphis today as family and mourners come together to remember Tyre Nichols, the 29-year-old whose death at the hands of police sparked renewed protest against this brutality all across the United States. National figures, including Vice President Kamala Harris, were in attendance today, together with George Floyd’s brother Philonise and Tamika Palmer, mother of Breonna Taylor – both victims of police violence. As for attempts to change federal law, the Washington Post reports that “police reform talks are back in Congress, but little hope for a deal.” Jelani Cobb, dean of Columbia Journalism School, joins the show to discuss. 

Also on today’s show: Correspondent Gillermo Galdos reports on the ongoing unrest in Peru; Santiago Mitre, co-writer and director of “Argentina, 1985” and Luis Moreno Ocampo Moreno, former chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court; US House Democrat Chrissy Houlahan and US House Republican Stephanie Bice on the fight for paid family leave.
