POLICE BRUTALITY AND EXECUTIONS: “Racism or Militarization: What’s at the Root of Police Killings” / RT America / Simone Del Rosario, and Jeremy Kuzmarov ☮

Residents of Charlotte, North Carolina are calling for the mayor, police chief and lawmakers to resign in the wake of the officer-involved killing of Keith Scott a week ago. These calls have echoed through communities turned upside down by police killings of black men. While many consider these killings to be rooted in racism, Jeremy Kuzmarov, professor of American history at the University of Tulsa, tells RT America’s Simone Del Rosario the role of militarization should not be downplayed.
