In a speech yesterday New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called the murder of two New York police officers last weekend ‘an attack on all of us’, ‘an attack on our democracy.‘ He said it was time ‘to put aside political debate’ and ‘to put aside protests.’ The man who killed the two officers as they sat in their patrol car had claimed his actions were in retaliation for the deaths of Michael Ferguson and Eric Garner. Some protestors and some politicians, including Mayor de Blasio, are being accused of raising anti-police sentiment. Please join us to discuss the killings of two police officers in New York and the on-going debate over racial fairness in the U.S. criminal justice system.
