Chief of Police Has an Emotional Outburst about Racial Violence in America
It’s been hard to avoid discussing the shooting of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson. As usual it has torn open an old and bloody wound, with many seeing it as just another example of institutionalised racism within US police forces.

Here we see Chief of Police for Milwaukee, Edward Flynn, give a truly heartfelt account of day-to-day violence against African Americans within his jurisdiction.
