Encore: When HS Police Officers Shoot Innocent Kids
February 6, 2018
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
School shootings are tragic - but the solution is not arming police officers or teachers at schools - especially if they aren't trained in child or adolescent psychology. A recent case in point is the shooting of Logan Clark, a student at Hug High School in Nevada. Suffering from psychological problems - largely due to being bullied - Logan brought a knife to school to protect himself against these increasingly aggressive bullies. But, a trigger happy police officer shot first and asked questions later. Logan, who almost died, has a long road to recovery ahead - and his hopes of getting a scholarship to college based upon his athletic prowess are dashed. Today's guest, famed attorney David Houston, is taking Logan's case. He gives an update on the school's refusal to take responsibility, and what's really going on behind the scenes.
