Molly Knefel offers insight on President Trump’s recent remarks to a Suffolk County Police Department where his suggestion that officers be rough with suspects was met with cheers and applause. She also discusses the danger of proposed “Blue Lives Matter” laws which could lead to increased sentences for those accused of harming an officer, but make it more difficult to hold law enforcement accountable in instances of police brutality.
Molly and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch.
