Ferguson - Distrust of Police Said To Have Long Historical Context

ROBERT GANJI (gann’ JEE), is the director of the Police Reform Organization Project in New York City. It's a non-profit collation that educates the public about abusive police practices and advocates for ending those abusive practices. Ganji says the media and public need to understand that the anger and rioting that accompanies these sorts of police actions do not happen in a vacuum. Ganji says there is a long historical context.
