The Red Bayou Show, Episode 52 – Featuring Talk 107.3’s Kevin Gallagher

This week, Talk 107.3’s Kevin Gallagher joined Scott McKay and Brian Haldane to talk about Baton Rouge in the wake of Alton Sterling’s death. How has Baton Rouge handled the fallout from the shooting versus how much influence have out of town protesters had over the events? They talk about police response, not just use in terms of use of force in controlling the protests, but Kevin gives an in-depth analysis of the handling the message as well. They evaluate and grade the performance of leadership on every level from local to state to national.

They also talk about policing for profit, and the negative effects it has on the less affluent members of society, leaving many with bench warrants that stem from something as simple as a ticket they couldn’t afford to pay.

Brian asks Kevin about the response he has gotten from both the radio audience as well as law enforcement in the last two weeks. What are people saying, and how are authorities reacting?
