On Wednesday, the coroner's inquest of Erik Scott will be televised. Erik Scott was shot and killed on July 10th, by three Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officers outside a Summerlin Costco. Metro says Scott pulled a gun. Some witnesses agree, most disagree.

So will a televised inquest make the procedings clearer for those who watch it?

What does the decision to televise these procedings say about relations between Metro and the Las Vegas community?

And what can be done to repair police/community relations?

We'll talk with several community leaders about the meaning of a televised inquest, and we'll take your calls and questions.

GUESTS
Pastor Robert Fowler, Sr Pastor, Victory Missionary Baptist Church
Wendell Williams, former State Assemblyman and Founder, The League of Action
