In today's episode, we discuss the viral footage of two police officers in Toledo, OH running bravely into a gang shootout and give credit where it due. It's rare on the program where we discuss instances of heroism, but in our efforts to have a balanced journalistic approach to the program, we felt it was important to highlight this. We also discuss Al Sharpton and Ben Crump's decision to take a case where the victim of a police shooting was White. We explore the reasons for their decision while still holding a critical examination of the policing structure as it exists presently. Finally. DJ Swirl discusses the origins of Black Lives Matter for our Way Black History Fact.
