Behind the Police

Jul 02 2020 88 mins 3.3k

How did American police get so violent? The answer to that question goes back centuries, to the earliest days of this nation. On this special podcast miniseries hosts Robert Evans and rap artist Propaganda (Jason Petty) draw a straight line from the darkest days of slavery, to the murder of George Floyd and the mass violence American police meted out to their citizens this summer.

It's a real shame that you have to sit through lies, bias, racism, and overall nonsense to hear some facts. It sounds like one of the guys actually did some research, which he habitually misinterprets to the accolades of his ignorant yes-man sidekick. I have to unsubscribe because I cannot sleep at night thinking that my subscription could appear to endorse this drivel.

How biased of you! Let's take your twisted revision of history and "damn" the peace officers of this country! Shame on you for your continued divisiveness to try to bring further harm and lies to our great NATION of men and women who sacrifice their very LIVES FOR YOURS!!

Liberal nonsense

Unfortunately this podcast is a swing and a miss. There's a pretty clear bias in the way the history of policing in America is presented and it disappointingly detracts from the important social conversation that is occurring right now. As a long time subscriber to iHeart Radio podcasts I expected a stronger commitment to ethical reporting as other podcasts have been a lot closer to even-handed when discussing these topics. Maybe adding a pro-police voice would help add balance and nuance.

Obviously bias and wrong, from the title to the end.

Extremely biased. If you dislike police, this the podcast for you.

Smartly uses history of the police to build to the present. I'm glad to learn and now I have a couple books to read through because of this podcast.

Stay mad, cops

So informative for those trying to understand why the police keep doing 'wrong' and helps one to understand that police and criminal justice system was never set up to serve the people, at least not certain groups of people. Uncomfortable but essential listening for a woke generation

Good concept, but the "wokeness" only extends in very specific directions. Don't get me wrong: ACAB, but I couldn't even make it through the first episode without screaming internally about some BS
