Policing in America

ICYMI: Watch this Morning Joe conversation between Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle about the status of policing in America following the shooting death of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant by a police officer in Columbus, Ohio, this week. “My instinct is that in police academy after police academy, especially in big cities...they don't teach recruits about the culture of the cities that they are policing, and it's vitally necessary to do that in this day and age, when we have such a mix in this country of so many different people, so many different languages,” says Barnicle, who added policing is "a complex, dangerous job....That's what police officers are trained to do and he did it,” Barnicle says of the officer, whose body camera footage shows Bryant was confronting another girl and wielding a knife as shots were fired.
