        America After Ferguson: Learning from Los Angeles

        Learn how the Los Angeles Police Department has changed since the 1992 Los Angeles riots, in which LAPD officers were acquitted of excessive force against Rodney King in this video from America After Ferguson. Connie Rice, the co-director of The Advancement Project, describes her work over the past 12 years to help change LAPD cops. While she thinks it will be at least 100 years before we get past racial bias in law enforcement, she is helping to show police officers what it means to be trusted by people who live in housing projects and have been subjected to routine police harassment. Ms. Rice believes a revolution in policing can occur if communities engage with police officers who have decided to change how they think.
