Ernesto Arce and the South Central Third World News explores the city of Los Angeles’ crime data and how law enforcement agencies are using it to push for more policing budgets. Plus, the ongoing tragedy of police brutality especially when it joins forces with its corporate partners as was put on display last week during a police killing of an elderly disabled man at a Walmart in Arizona.
