  • Up Close: Scott Shane and Joe Domanick

    by TJC Staff

    This week on Up Close, to what lengths will we go to try to keep ourselves safe? And when we speak of keeping “us” safe, who are we excluding?

    The drone strike on an American citizen in 2011 required some novel legal arguments by the Obama administration, and some novel takes on military strategy and tactics, in addition to new technology. How we got to this place, and what it means for America going forward, is explored by New York Times National Security Reporter Scott Shane, in “Objective Troy: A Terrorist, A President, and the Rise of the Drone.”

    And then, while most white Americans are extremely safe in this country, police violence has often left African-Americans and other minority populations explicitly unsafe. In few places has this been more evident than Los Angeles, before, during and after the so-called Rodney King Riots. I speak with Joe Domanick, author of “Blue: The LAPD and the Battle to Redeem American Policing.”

    Watch the complete episode of Up Close on TJC on-demand on cable in the TJC Original Series/Interviews category.
