Carl Dix

Civil rights activist Carl Dix joins the program from Ferguson, Missouri, to discuss the police killing of black teen Michael Brown, and why Dix himself was singled out for arrest at one of the protests in Ferguson. The segment on police violence continues with an interview with Criminal Justice Professor Diana Grant of Sonoma State University, whose research has shown that federal statistics greatly understate the number of people who die each year at the hands of police.  In the second half of the show, USDA whistleblower Michael McCray speaks about the recent Whistleblower Summit Conference in Washington, DC. And the program concludes with a segment from KPFA’s Strike Debt Collective, examining the pervasive role of the credit reporting industry in American life.
