YGB's Eric Upchurch on WPR
YGB’s Eric Upchurch joined Wisconsin Public Radio on Wednesday, June 29 to talk about the Black Lives Matter community’s response to the police beating of Genele Laird, and how her release isn’t necessarily a victory to Madison’s Black community. Says Upchurch, Laird “did not resist, what she did do was react to the escalation that trained police officers induce. So, we need to foster a culture that doesn’t make that seem like a good idea to police officers, and what we’ve seen is that when police officers are accountable to the communities that they serve, things like this happen less.”
