Article and program on settlements in police misconduct cases

  Yesterday I posted a video on data related to how much money is spent on settling cases of police misconduct.  Today, I am posting another conversation on the subject.  In this one, Benjamin Wittes sat down on Lawfare Live with Rashawn Ray, the David M. Rubenstein Fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution, to talk about civil settlements. Rashawn is the author of a recent Lawfare article about how to reform the civil settlement system to make it more effective in deterring police misconduct, and they discussed the series of reforms that Rashawn recommends.  You may want to read the article first (here) and then listen to the conversation (by clicking on the play button below or by going here.)
