Last June, violence broke out between police and citizens of Benton Harbor, Mich., after a young black man died in a high-speed police chase. A multi-racial task force has issued a report to determine what precipitated the violent unrest. NPR's Tavis Smiley gets details from Rick Pluta, a reporter with WKAR in East Lansing, Mich. In part two of our discussion, Smiley discusses police-community relations across the country with Angela Glover Blackwell, the president of PolicyLink, and Jim Pasco, executive director of the National Fraternal Order of Police.
