SUMMARY: From body cams to why pastors should have a conversation about policing to qualified immunity to the militarization of the police pastors Louis Love and Thabiti Anyabwile engage in a wide range of topics related to policing in America. Engaging, thought provoking and informative. Start at 5:45 to get to the conversation.

KEY QUOTE: “Most people are not categorically opposed to policing. We need some kind of protection of our communities and some kind of organized force that opposes criminality, criminal behavior. What we want is good policing. I think what we have is a culture of policing that assumes that all policing is good except for the ‘few bad apples’ when in reality there is some structural, systemic mission kind of flaws that challenge most police departments and police officers. And we need to change those.”
