This Week's Program:

US POLICE & EXCESSIVE FORCE
A bystander's video of a South Carolina police officer shooting and killing an unarmed black man has reignited the US debate over excessive use of force by law enforcement. With Americans weighing in loudly on social media, several key questions have reemerged: Are these shootings the result of “bad apples” or part of the high cost of curbing crime in troubled areas? And, is it time to equip US police officers with body cameras? This week’s HashtagVOA seeks answers from all sides of the debate.
