Radioactivity listeners sound off on recent NYPD officer killings


On Saturday afternoon, two NYPD officers were shot and killed while sitting in their patrol car in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, by a Baltimore man who had reported posted anti-police statements on social media before the shooting. Today on Radioactivity, we look at opposing viewpoints, one from a TV segment with FOX News host Tucker Carlson, and another from a press conference with Rev. Al Sharpton, on whether recent civil unrest regarding police brutality and racial tension contributed to the officers’ deaths. We then open up the phone lines for listener’s thought and opinions.
