Join Sgt. Tom Datro and his guest Arif Alikhan as they discuss the recent shootings in Atlanta that took the lives of six Asian American women and two others. They talk about the importance of police officers who are good at decision making and lastly, they ask themselves if racism is systemic, institutional and/or if the country has made progress? Alikhan is President & Chief Legal Counsel for Taclogix, Inc. Most recently, Arif was the Director of Constitutional Policing and Policy for LAPD.

  • Attacks and hate towards AAPI Community
  • Whether or not there is sufficient evidence to prove what happened in Atlanta is a hate crime?
