St. Louis and the acquital of Officer Stockley

So somehow perhaps I thought doing a podcast would be less time consuming or easier than writing a blog post? No. Hell, no. Do you know what editing entails? Even light audio editing? But it's different. Kind of fun. What the hell. I hope it's educational (and hopefully also entertaining).

Anyway, here's Nick Selby and I talking about the acquittal of Officer Stockley in St. Louis.

We now have six episodes up. (Even though with our odd counting system it only counts as three.) And Nick finally got a decent mic (not till be heard till the seventh episode).

The episode we're most proud of is our interview of former Decatur Police Officer Andrew Wittmer. He talks about his police-involved shooting and the post-incident PTSD.

I have read a few of your blogs and they are all interesting. I like hoe you address them. This particular one really stood out to me. I think it was a bit much to bring a AK on a patrol.

Thanks for your comments on the Stockley case Moskos (and for everything you do), they were thought-provoking in the extreme.

Also, Mark Kleiman just posted something on the reality based community that you should take a look at: http://www.samefacts.com/2017/09/drug-policy/violent-crime-up-second-year-in-a-row/

Good and interesting podcast on Stockley. You raised some points that I was not aware of and that might tip my view to guilty. Still a few details that I'm unclear about though.

I found your data about shootings and murders since 2012 to be very interesting. There were some very good points that were made, i didn't realize how bad the shooting and murders have truly gotten until i looked over your data. The violence has most definitely increased.
