An ex-cop unravels+chivalry vs. feminism+when 1 billion rise

1.  An ex-cop (and the reputation of the LAPD) unravel


Tonight we talk about the presumed death of ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, who went on a shooting rampage for several days after releasing this "manifesto" accusing the LAPD of extreme corruption.  The words "tragedy" and "expected" have been thrown around since word hit the press of his rampage.  We will talk about the charges he made in his manifesto and how they relate to the LAPD's often checkered past.  Guests include ex-LAPD officer, private investigator and creator of renegadepopo.com, Alex Salazar & community journalist, Thandi Chimurenga & Black Awareness Community Development Organization's Executive Director Jitu Sadiki.


But first...
