LISTEN: Criminal Justice Expert On Policing After The Chauvin Verdict

Ryan Lindsay
Connecticut Public Radio

Now that a jury has found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts in the murder of George Floyd, America is wondering what changes this case has wrought on the way police officers do their jobs. To weigh in with his thoughts, John DeCarlo joined All Things Considered. He’s the director of the Master’s Program in Criminal Justice at University of New Haven and the former Branford Police Chief. Among other things, De Carlo talked about whether he sees cracks in the infamous blue wall of silence...and why police cars have the type of claustrophic back seats that frightened George Floyd and set the events in motion that led to his death.

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. He's proud to be a part of the team that won a regional Emmy Award for The Vote: A Connecticut Conversation. In his 21st year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
