The Yaron and Amy Show returns today, on the sixth day of civil unrest and riots following the killing of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis. One thing that could, that should, quell the unrest, would be for our leaders–particularly Donald Trump–to support the withdrawal of legal immunity for police misconduct. This is supported by people across the political spectrum, and yet Trump seems able only to exhort “Law and Order!” without addressing the real need for legal reform.
Meanwhile, with respect to social media platforms, he’s so eager to remove *their* legal immunity that he doesn’t even bother going to Congress first–he signs an executive order.
These stories and more on today’s show, which will be broadcast live on Yaron’s YouTube channel, Facebook page, etc. See Program Notes, below.
