As riots continue across America’s cities after the killing of George Floyd, local law enforcement and leaders struggle to stop the violence. Today, Ken Blackwell, the former mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio, and a board member of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund, joins the show to discuss how state and local leaders can keep the peace. Blackwell also challenges Americans to remember our history in order to see the progress we have made and to rid our nation of racism once and for all.


We also cover these stories:

  • Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin now is being charged with second-degree murder and the three other involved officers are charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.
  • Defense Secretary Mark Esper says he doesn’t endorse using military force to quell riots and looting if governors fail to take the initiative.
  • Rod Rosenstein, the former deputy attorney general, walks back his decision to green-light FBI spying on a former Trump campaign aide.
