Retired NYPD detective John Baeza joins the show to discuss the tragic killing of George Floyd and the riots sparked by that killing. "I think we're going to see repeats of this unrest," says John Baeza who claims that the problem is an increasing militarization of law enforcement. On the riots that have gripped the nation: "It just doesn't make it right to destroy and steal from businesses." The retired detective also grimly predicts that if this coercion-laced discord continues then there might not be any light on the horizon.

Are curfews effective in stopping riots? Is there any evidence of 'institutionalized white supremacy' in the police force? Listen to the full episode for Detective Baeza's insights on these questions and more.
