"Why didn't they use their training?" asked attorney Ben Crump, referring to Randy Cox's treatment by New Haven police. "Why didn't they use the policies that they are supposed to know? Why didn't they give him an ounce of humanity?"

A New Haven resident was recently injured while in police custody, and could be permanently paralyzed.

Today, we talk about what went wrong and how the New Haven Police Department is responding. New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker and Assistant Police Chief Karl Jacobson join us.
