Alex Zielinski talks with Bill Resnick



Bill Resnick and Alex Zielinski, city hall reporter and police watcher for the Portland Mercury, discuss police autonomy, their escape from civilian control, as well as their much closer relations to the alt right than to the left, and how this ominous threat can be reversed, building some police commitment to constitutional government.

This is an extended version of the interview (the broadcast version can be found with the audio of the whole show)
