How many times a year do police kill people? And what happens to officers after they fire a fatal shot? Those were just some of the questions prompted by the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner in New York. On this episode of the IRE Radio Podcast we’ll be talking to some of the journalists working to answer those questions.
Here’s the lineup:
Rob Barry and Coulter Jones walk through how they found and reported on a problem with the FBI’s system for tracking police killings. The story ran in the Wall Street Journal.
Sarah Ryley, Nolan Hicks and Dareh Gregorian of The New York Daily News discuss their investigation into NYPD-involved deaths.
