De-policing In Urban NeighborhoodsStreaming Video - 2006
Beset with the catchphrase "racial profiling," police in many American cities have responded with their own terminology: "selective disengagement," "tactical detachment," and the code NC/NC-"no contact, no complaints." In this program, ABC News anchor Ted Koppel reports on how police are moving from active to passive law enforcement in the wake of controversy, resulting in a spike of violent crimes. His discussion panel includes Keith Fangman, president of the Cincinnati Fraternal Order of Police; Reverend Damon Lynch III, president of Cincinnati's Black United Front; and Larry Gossett, the only African-American member of Seattle's King County Metropolitan Council.
