The Citizen's Guide to the Supreme Court

Grand Juries, Govt. Immunity and Police Use of Deadly Force

Feb. 1, 2015

This week's episode discusses the legal issues surrounding the police in Ferguson, MS and Staton Island, NY.  The goal here was to take a strictly legal and objective overview of the issues in each case, specifically what a grand jury does, why you can't sue the government and what the Constitution says about police use of deadly force, without getting too deep into the political issues that made up most of the media coverage.  Let's call this one better late than never. neither hosts nor alters podcast files.
