Austin Ashe was a panelist at Fordham Law School on November 5, 2014 which looked at the "Standards of Police Conduct.
Title: Standards of Police Conduct
Description: Recent tragic events involving the interaction between police officers and individuals call into question what standards police should abide by in their daily conduct to protect the community. The death of Eric Garner makes such a question particularly relevant to individuals in New York. Eric Garner’s story also underscores the racial context that the question of police discretion has taken on in communities throughout the United States. The Stein Scholars present a balanced, interactive discussion on the proper standards of police encounters in the streets of New York. New York is in a unique position to continue the discussion of police interaction and standards of conduct with the ongoing reform process in the Mayor’s Office.
Format: The Stein Scholars community is opening the discussion to the Fordham and New York community. With the help of expert panelists, the audience will go through exemplary scenarios, which re-enact a particular interaction between (an) individual(s) and law enforcement officer(s) to evenly debate the nuances of the interactions.
Date and Time: Wednesday, November 5, 2014 from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM
