Your Call: Police militarization; Mosul's humanitarian crisis

11-6-600x387.png

On the October 21st edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of the battle against ISIS in Mosul, Iraq.

We’ll also speak with Craig Atkinson about his documentary DO NOT RESIST, which explores the militarization of police forces across the country. Police departments have received more than $34 billion in federal grants to buy military style equipment. Tweet your questions and comments to @yourcallradio and join us live at 10am with me, Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Craig Atkinson, award winning producer, cinematographer, and director of the new documentary Do Not Resist
