Contemporary Issues Involving Police Use of Force and the Disparate Treatment of African Americans: Truth or Fiction

Dr. Harvey L. McMurray, Professor of Criminal Justice, Director, Institute for Homeland Security & Emergency Management, Department of Criminal Justice, North Carolina Central University

Thursday, April 13 @ 1:30 pm at The Gathering Place

Dr. McMurray, a former police officer with the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department, will share his perspective on police use of force, making a distinction between necessary force and justifiable force as well as legal precedents. Historical considerations will provide a framework for understanding America’s administration of justice or the lack thereof, depending on one’s perspective. This meeting will explore principles that are intended to reinforce the arc of justice in America. Dr. McMurray fully expects that attendees will be active participants in the discussion.
