When Experts Attack #16: Over-policing creates crime

When Experts Attack #16: Over-policing creates crime

Many people underestimate just how much contact African-Americans and other communities of color have had with the criminal-justice system. We see news about protests now and some think it’s only a result of George Floyd’s murder or other recent examples police brutality, but in fact frustration has been building for decades. For individuals and families of color, carceral contact has long-lasting effects well after a traffic stop, arrest, conviction or prison sentence ends. As our guest expert Brandon Davis explains, one of the most sinister outcomes is the resulting suppression of political power in communities of color.
