For episode 30 of the Nooze Hounds podcast, Justin and Ryan talk to Kass Ottley of Seeking Justice CLT about the upcoming implementation of the Safe Charlotte plan, from the city’s efforts to “reimagine policing” to the $1 million it will invest in local violence-prevention organizations. We also discuss CMPD’s history of violence over the past decade, with discussions about the killings of Jonathan Ferrell, Keith Lamont Scott and Danquirs Franklin, among others.
