Police Brutality, Prejudice and Abuse with Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey

vor 4 Jahren

Police brutality from Baltimore to Ferguson and Oakland is discussed with retired LAPD Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey, who sheds light on why abuse and entitlement have prevented cops from protecting and serving the public. The death of Freddie Gray, reason why Darren Wilson went too far in Ferguson, and underlying trend of ‘shoot first’ has taken hold in modern police departments in America is all discussed. We also learn about her own experience joining the LAPD and her rising through the ranks in a climate that frequently treated her with suspicion, and the complex issues that continue to surround black police officers in this Media Mayhem, hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.

Cheryl Dorsey is a Los Angeles native. In 1978, she began a career in law enforcement where she worked for the State of California, Department of Justice. In 1980, Cheryl joined the Los Angeles Police Department. During (LAPD) her twenty year career, she worked exclusively in patrol and specialized units such as traffic, vice and the infamous gang unit known as Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums (C.R.A.S.H.)
As an LAPD insider, Ms. Dorsey's autobiography, The Creation of a Manifesto, Black & Blue, provides an unfiltered look into the LAPD's internal processes with a level of credibility that is undeniable and irrefutable. Today, she serves as a speaker, freelance writer, community advocate and police expert, educating the public in the areas of police policy and procedures as well as understanding police culture and deciphering police code talk. She has appeared on the Dr. Phil Show as a guest expert and is also a regular commentator on syndicated radio show, The Hutchinson Report in Los Angeles.
Ms. Dorsey is a speaker, freelance writer and much sought after police expert on important issues making national headlines, regarding abuse under the color of authority – that is, racial profiling, use of force, deadly force and women’s work place issues. Ms. Dorsey enlightens and empowers audiences with her candid and honest approach to surviving police encounters.
