Police reform, protests, and felony charges for demonstrators

This week on “In the Hive”, we check in with the mayor of Salt Lake City to hear about an executive order enacting policy changes for the city’s police department. Then we hear from a Cottonwood Heights City Councilwoman who participated in, and filmed, a protest that was forcibly broken up by police. And we speak to a protester facing felony charges for spreading paint and rioting during a demonstration in front of the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office. 

Guests:
Erin Mendenhall, Salt Lake City Mayor
Tali Bruce, Cottonwood Heights City Councilwoman
Madalena McNeil, activist, organizer and protester
