Radiolab
No Special Duty
What are the police for? As Black Lives Matter protests and calls to “defund the police” got under way, Radiolab started to ask that question. And it led to a wild story of a stabbing on a New York City subway train, and the realization that, according to the law, the police don’t always have to protect us. The show digs into the legal background, which goes all the way up to the Supreme Court ... and then all the way back down to on-duty officers themselves.
