On Tuesday, July 27, seven months after Chicago witnessed body-camera footage of Anjanette Young in her home, naked and surrounded by officers who were raiding it in search of someone who did not live there, the City Council is holding a hearing on an ordinance named after her. The Anjanette Young Ordinance would prohibit the practice of no-knock or knock-and-announce warrants, require more evidence beyond just one informant before conducting a raid, and require police to keep more documentation of such home invasions, especially when children are present.

This is an EXCELLENT Podcast. I haven’t read Bill Bratton’s new book “The Profession” but I’m sure it is probably as good as his fist book “Turnaround” (One of my favorites). Bratton talks about several main points of policing that are key to the profession. The last 10 minutes Bratton compares the trends on the 1970s that caused the crime problems in the 1990s and the parallels he sees today which may generate similar crime problems in the future. An excellent comparison.
