On today’s episode: We introduce the Purple State Report and talk to Rebecca Wallace, an ACLU attorney who negotiated a 110K settlement in the Darsean Kelley police excessive force case. Kelley was stopped for no reason, detained, and tased in the back by Aurora Police just as he said “I know my rights.” Wallace explains how the ACLU sought justice and what still needs to be done to hold police in Aurora and around Colorado accountable for excessive force. Also, our Call to Action: Urge Denver City Council to keep the City from getting tangled up in federal immigration enforcement.
Darsean was tased by Colorado police for no reason. He knew his rights and said so. And it’s all on video.
