Tonight is the first of 13 community listening sessions scheduled with the Phoenix Police Department and other city staff, to give the public a chance to give their feedback to the Police Department. A recent editorial defended the actions of the Phoenix Police Department during President Trump’s downtown rally, and it was critical of those who interrupted a Phoenix City Council meeting.
As protesters and police clashed outside of the Phoenix Convention Center last month during President Donald Trump’s rally, everyone could hear the helicopters flying above. But much higher in the air, something else was flying that not many knew was there: A Phoenix Police Department plane.

World War II has come to be known as the Great War, and it was fought by America’s “Greatest Generation.” That included African-Americans, but their story hasn’t been told with the detail that their history may dictate.
The Trump administration’s announcement on DACA follows its decision earlier this summer to cancel another program implemented by the Obama administration. It was called DAPA, which stands for Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents.

As we’ve heard, the DACA program is ending. The administration says no current recipients of the program will be impacted before March 5, but there are around 800,000 who currently have this status, including more than 20,000 here in Arizona.
