Talking about watching the cops

PSU played host to a police accountability forum, Monday afternoon. (Above) Dan Handelman (left) of Cop Watch, a group that describes itself as ‘policing the police,’ explains his opposition to Caine Lowery on the question “Under what conditions is the use of deadly force justified?” Lowery stated that police are perpetuating more violence by using violent tactics.
