Best Of Idaho Matters 2020: Policing In America — And Idaho

Darin Oswald
Idaho Statesman
Boise Police officers stand between Black Lives Matter activists and a group of agitators — some of whom were displaying Nazi imagery and shouting racial slurs — at the steps of Boise City Hall on June 30, 2020.";s:


Today on Idaho Matters, we're sharing a special encore presentation of our July 6 conversation about policing in America and in Idaho.

We take a close look at way policing is done in America and at what could be done to improve the relationship between police and the people they serve. And later in the hour: we examine the movement to defund the police, and consider what it could mean for two Boise organizations.
