Police Brutality

By Lillie Herbst

This is a podcast dealing with issues of police discrimination and brutality towards people of color. I discussed with Beloit faculty members the past, present, and future events that will shape and define the police force, and the rights of the black community. I analyzed two speeches that show the history of the push towards a more equal police force, and one speech that shows what may be happening with the police force in the future. In the podcast I also talk about how long this has been an issue, and I discuss a large movement which has started to end this brutality and violence.
