Liberal Arts Talks presents Robert Aponte: "Sixteen Bullets: The Laquan McDonald Tragedy and the Police Code of Silence", February 8, 2018

Professor Robert Aponte (Sociology) presents "Sixteen Bullets: The Laquan McDonald Tragedy and the Police Code of Silence."

Malicious shootings of mostly black civilians by police have unleashed public outcry and renewed reform efforts.
