Leader’s Roundtable: ‘Paid Experts’ and Police Exonerations (Hybrid)

February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Bring your lunch and join Leader Dr. Nori Rost and members for an engaging round-table discussion on the issues of the day and recommended readings.

As we close out Black History month, with our banner emphasizing #BlackLivesMatter, these two articles look at how paid “expert advice” is used to exonerate police officers who have killed people of all races while in custody. What is the price of “paid experts?” When should they be allowed?

This week’s readings:

Expert says cop was justified in pinning down George Floyd – ABC News (go.com)

How Paid Experts Help Exonerate Police After Deaths in Custody – The New York Times (nytimes.com)
