On this week’s episode, the boys from 3CT talk with former police officer, author and professor Will Moravits about his recently published book, The Blue Divide; Policing and Race in America.
Will discusses his police roots, his eventual transition to academia and some of his experiences from both of these often-polarized worlds. He hopes to better educate the public and the police on the facts behind some of the most controversial cases involving race and policing in the United States.
Much like his life and book, this show is a down-to-earth conversation with Will that helps to bridge the gap between people and the police.
