Copland, U.S.A. now S.O.P.? Today on Radio Free Kansas at 3pm, Central Standard

Investigative journalist Dave Lindorff might have pulled out his pen and blown off his own toes with the latest send-up "Killer Cops" at This Can't Be Happening! Lindorff calls for police to act less as soldiers in a war and more like firefighters.  

During the first hour we'll have a discussion with Lindorff about the recent lethal shooting by police of 15 yr. old Jaimie Gonzalez in Brownsville, Texas.  Gonzalez was killed in possession of a CO2 powered pellet pistol, that photographs (provided by police) show it to closely resemble a Glock 9MM. The 8th grade student from Cummings Middle School was buried yesterday with hundreds "packing" the ceremony calling for "justice" according to today's Houston Chronicle.

Also joining the conversation "Mark" a retired federal firefighter who served in the U. S. Navy and as a civilian at Ft. Leavenworth. He'll describe his thoughts of the differences in mentalities and training between today's cops and our firefighters.
