Phil Boas: Qualified Immunity, Police Unions And The Defund Movement
The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about the big issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.
As protests over the killing of George Floyd and police brutality continue, we’ve heard people on both sides of the political aisle talk about the need for reform.
