POLICE TAPE by Making Contact

It’s been 20 years since four white police officers were cleared of unlawfully beating Rodney King in LA. But we might never have heard of Rodney King had it not been for an amateur cameraman who caught the whole thing on tape. In a special radio adaptation of the film “Police Tape,” we will hear how video cameras have changed the way we see the police. Journalist Josh Wolf investigates how law enforcement and amateur videographers across the country have responded to changing technologies.
