Human Rights Watch, an international nongovernmental organization, released a report accusing the NYPD of serious international human rights violations and has called into question some of the justifications made by the top brass of the department after a June crackdown in the South Bronx. Ida Sawyer, co-author of the report and acting crisis and conflict director at Human Rights Watch, joins us for this special episode.
