Today we speak with Professor David Harris, Distinguished Faculty Scholar at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, about racial profiling and the militarized police response to public protest resulting from the shooting of Michael Brown by police in Ferguson, MO.

Professor Harris teaches Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Evidence, and classes on criminal justice policy and national security.
Professor Harris’s books include Profiles in Injustice: Why Racial Profiling Cannot Work (2002), and Good Cops: The Case for Preventive Policing (2005). He is regarded as the country’s foremost expert on racial profiling, and has testified in Congress numerous times on profiling and related subjects. Professor Harris’s newest book, Failed Evidence: Why Law Enforcement Resists Science explores why police and prosecutors have largely resisted changes recommended by decades of scientific work on eyewitness identification, interrogation of suspects, and non-DNA forensics, and how we can break through this resistance in order to have fewer wrongful convictions and a more accurate criminal justice system.
Professor Harris also works on law enforcement and police/community relations around the country and around the world. He gives speeches and does professional training for law enforcement, judges, attorneys, and community groups, and presents his work regularly in academic conferences. He also works frequently with the media (the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC’s Today Show, NPR, and many others). You can find his blog on developments in criminal law at failedevidence.wordpress.com.

Demilitarizing the Police for Safer Communities

We speak about the increasing militarization of police forces throughout the US. Armed with military equipment including assault rifles and tanks and trained by the military, the police force is treating our streets like a war zone and responding with excessive force to events, particularly when people of color are involved. Our guests, Carl Williams and Kade Crockford, from the Massachusetts American Civil Liberties Union have been studying this trend and the lack of transparency and accountability around it. We will talk about the problems and also what we can do in our communities to de-escalate the situation.

The Nuclear Industry is the Problem

We examine the true costs of nuclear energy and whether it is truly necessary as we transition to a sustainable energy economy. Starting in the 1950′s there was a Uranium Rush in the US that dwarfed the Gold Rush and left behind more than ten thousand abandoned uranium mines that continue to pollute the air, land and water today and cause serious public health problems. This is the dirty beginning of nuclear energy. Klee Benally of Clean Up The Mines! speaks about the impacts of uranium mining and the national campaign to clean up the abandoned uranium mines. Leona Morgan of Diné No Nukes speaks about the impacts of these mines and her community’s work to stop mining and restore health. Then Tim Judson of the Nuclear Information and Resource Service will describe how the nuclear industry is prohibiting sustainable energy and positioning itself to be the solution to the climate crisis.

Activist Cinema 10 - It's a double feature today as we take a look at two documentary films that compliment each other quite well.  The Weather Underground (2002) uses archival footage and interviews to look at the actions taken by the Weather Underground in the late 1960's and early 1970's.  A hardcore group of activists committed to the violent overthrow of the US government.  The second film is Pickaxe (1999), an on the ground look at the activists who took a stand to protect an old growth forest from logging at Warner Creek in the Willamette National Forest of Oregon, blockading the logging road and repelling the State Police.  A hardcore group of activists committed to non-violent resistance of US government policy
