Description
This episode's feature story looks at Maryland police training and the appropriate use of physical force following investigations of police brutality in the state. The segment briefly covers a 6-month program for state troopers at Maryland police headquarters before host Jeff Salkin moves into a panel discussion with a police ethics expert, an attorney representing police officers, and a professor of criminal justice at the University of Baltimore. Panelists answer questions from viewers calling in to the program. A "Neighborhood News" segment provides news reports on Walkersville's water system, the Maryland Conference of Western Court Judges, and West Nile virus. A "Mayland Biz" segment reports the auction of Hechingers stores following the company's bankruptcy. The final segment describes how residents of Burkittsville, Maryland, the setting of the first Blair Witch Project film, are coping with the movie's popularity during Halloween.
