A special Short Circuit Live at Georgetown University hosts Joanna Schwartz of UCLA to discuss her book Shielded: How the Police Became Untouchable. And not only that, but after hearing her introduce the book itself we do a full Short Circuit looking at a number of recent cases in light of it. Anya Bidwell and Professor Schwartz are joined by professors Seth Stoughton, Carlos Manuel Vazquez, and Alex Reinert. Recorded on Tuesday, March 7 and co-sponsored with our friends at the Georgetown Center for the Constitution.
