Former cop Michael Wood on guns, the drug war, systemic racism

Eye opening interviews with Michael Wood, formerly of the Baltimore PD. An insider’s look at the inner city school-to-prison cycle, the endless futility and death trap of the war on drugs, what systemic racism in the policing system looks like, and what, perhaps, can be done about it all.
