Charlotte Talks

Crime and Race
We have a debate about race and crime with a panel of guests who work in the trenches. Detective Willie Thomas has been arresting juveniles most of his career. He has responded by developing programs to try and stem crime among African Americans and young people. He is joined by a sociologist and local councilman to discuss the issue.
Guests:
Detective Willie Thomas - Detective, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department
Dr. Robert Ruth - Associate Professor of Sociology, Davidson College
Councilman Anthony Foxx - Charlotte City Council
