We host a panel which talks about police reform and the war on drugs, with news that the Baltimore Police Department has shifted its focus away from persons committing lesser drug-related crimes and more toward large-scale players in the drug trade. With: Steve Cook, President of the National Association of Assistant United States Attorneys; Capt. Leigh Maddox (Ret.), Special Assistant State’s Attorney who retired as a Captain from the Maryland State Police in 2007 and served as the coordinator for the racial profiling Consent Decree related to the drug interdiction policies of the Maryland State Police; Tessa Hill-Aston, President of the Baltimore branch of the NAACP; and Charles Ellison, political strategist and Host of The Ellison Report on WEAA.
