‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR AUGUST 7, 2020: DC Residents Speak Out On Police Terror and Defunding Police, Part 2…COVID Exacerbates Need to Shift Tax Dollars to Human Needs…U.S. Secret Service Attacks Two Black Mothers with Infants on National Mall

For this show, part two of our presentation of some of the 16,000 residents of DC who offered testimony in June about cutting the half-billion-dollar budget for the district’s Metropolitan Police Department. We spend the hour hearing from residents of the most policed city in the U.S. Parents, teachers, lawyers, activists and others speak out about policing and how they think their tax dollars should be spent for human needs and safety. Also a report on U.S. Secret Service agents attacking two Black mothers with infants on the National Mall.

The show is made possible only by our volunteer energy, our resolve to keep the people’s voices on the air, and by support from our listeners. In this new era of fake corporate news, we have to be and support our own media! Please click here or click on the Support-Donate tab on this website to subscribe for as little as $3 a month.
