A Fort Worth, Texas, cop shoots an innocent woman, Atatiana Jefferson, through the window of her own home after a neighbor calls in a “wellness check” when he notices her door ajar. When a cascade of societal calamities and individual errors results in the death of an innocent woman, how can we roll back to a time when neighbors knew each other, watched out for each other, talked with each other? And how can we better prepare the officers to whom we grant the power of lethal force on behalf of the state?
Since recording this episode, the Fort Worth police chief has said that Jefferson had armed herself with a gun when she heard “prowlers”, which the chief said was a reasonable reaction to the noises. How can Americans defend themselves against over-zealous law enforcement?
