From bedrooms to airplanes to coal mines, investigators and regulators are supposed to enforce and protect. This panel looks at what happens when investigators don’t do their jobs and investigative reporters step in. Panelists will discuss investigations into the failures of police and courts to protect victims of domestic violence, and the failures of federal regulators to overcome conflicts of interest and regulatory weakness in response to coal mine hazards and crashes of small planes.
