Between the Synapse discusses the cases of Michael Brown and Eric Garner as well as the issue of immigration with guest co-host Jay Aiyer and legal expert Jim Lavine.
The shooting of Michael Brown ignited not only protests and conflict in Ferguson, Missouri but a national discussion on the separation of race from justice. What the facts ultimately reveal, while important, won’t alter the view of many African Americans that law enforcement provides more concern than security. How did we get here and what do we do now. Joining Between the Synapse to discuss these issues is past chair of the Texas Legislative Black Caucus and community leader Rep. Garnet Coleman. Plus ISIS and Baseball rule changes.
