Interchange – Measured by Mistakes: The Reality and Representation of Policing

Tonight’s program seeks to shine a light first on what’s been called the “militarization” of police across the country due to something like a federal “give away” program where state and local forces are made the beneficiaries of excess military production (the “1033 Program”). We’ll also try to detach that reality from the “on the ground” aspects of being a police officer in a community. And finally, I’ll ask our guests to answer one question: Which should we want, officers of the law or officers of the peace?

Our guests are Monroe County Sheriff James Kennedy who has held that elected office since 2007, and Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Greg Jeffers whose research focuses on police-citizen interactions and resident’s perceptions of the police.

Interchange – Policing Race in America: Ferguson, Missouri

On tonight’s program, Policing Race in America, we discuss the way racial minorities are denigrated and devalued through institutional violence using the August 9 police murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri as an example that is all too common in the U.S.

Darren Wilson, the officer who killed Brown, is a resident of Crestwood, MO which is 94% White and under 2% Black, working in a Ferguson Police department (whose racial makeup is actually nearly that of the suburb of Crestwood) which polices a community that is 67% Black and 29% White (according to Wikipedia).

Joining host Doug Storm for this discussion are Jeannine Bell, an expert on police behavior and hate crime at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law and Valerie Grim, professor and chair of the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies.

Media School Releases Franklin Hall Renovation Plans

The IU Media School tweeted a drawing of the plans for Franklin Hall renovation following last week’s Board of Trustees meeting. On August 8th, Associate Dean Lesa Hatley Major met with IU trustees to propose interior plans for the merged media school. Major told trustees that the school will have space for student media including the IDS, WIUX, IUSTV, the Arbutus, and American Student Radio. The school will be open 24 hours a day to keep the media programs running. Level one of the school will have a broadcast studio as well as Ernie Pyle archives and the largest TV on campus. Classrooms will be on level two, along with study areas overlooking the first level.
