The Heat: U.S. protests fallout in U.S.

The Heat

Thousands of people are back on the streets calling for racial justice and demanding an end to police brutality in the U.S.

Over the weekend, demonstrations that stretched from New York to California were largely peaceful. Protesters want justice following the death of African American George Floyd.  Meanwhile, the white police officer accused of killing Floyd, after kneeling on his neck for nearly nine minutes, made a court appearance in Minneapolis Monday. While on Capitol Hill, Democrats knelt in remembrance of Floyd and introduced legislation aimed at police reform.

To discuss:

  • Ameshia Cross, Democratic strategist, and commentator for the Sinclair Broadcast Group
  • John Burnett, managing director and founder of 1 Empire Group.
  • Lara Brown, associate professor and the director of George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management.
  • Stephen LeDrew is a lawyer, broadcaster and former politician.
