Thinking About Philando Castile

“As a nation, we should be working to prevent these deaths from happening. Both the recent Task Force on 21st Century Policing and the Police Executive Research Forum (of which I have been a longtime member) have recommended steps toward this end. Communities need to implement these recommendations now.”


I wrote a piece this week in The Progressive about how things could have turned out differently when St. Anthony (MN) Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez stopped Philando Castile for driving with a broken taillight.
