Briahna speaks to Kamau Franklin, founder of Community Movement Builders
and a long-time organizer/attorney/writer in Atlanta who has been working against Cop City and around policing broadly, and Matthew Clair, a Stanford professor of sociology with a focus on how race and class inequalities in the criminal legal system are embedded in and reproduced through the attorney-client relationship. The panel discusses the proposed cop training development known as Cop City, the recent murder of Cop City protester Manuel "Tortuguita" Páez Terán by the police, the murder of Tyre Nichols and debates over whether "racism" could have played a role in the killing of a black man by black police officers. The panel then debated the utility of framing criminal justice reform as a "black" issue, the failures of the Biden administration's criminal justice efforts, and the role black mayors play in affirming the status quo.
