StayUp.News editor-in-chief Roberto E. Alejandro recently conducted a phone interview with former Baltimore Police Sergeant Michael Wood (not pictured above, but still, motorcycles), who entered the national conversation about policing this past June with a series of tweets documenting the problematic and abusive practices he witnessed while a Baltimore police officer. Our discussion touched on a variety of issues including police culture, training, the prospects for reform and who should have a seat at the table in that discussion.

Press play above to hear the full conversation.
