Some minority communities in Las Vegas are feeling antagonized by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Between recent officer-involved shootings, increased citations for things like jaywalking and attempted jaywalking, the recent arrest of African-American attorney David Lee Phillips all contribute to a feeling of helplessness among many minority Las Vegans.

We speak with former State Assemblyman and Founder of the local advocacy organization, The League of Action. We also speak with David Lee Phillips about his experiences. Metro has also been invited.
