Anatomy of a Riot

When you work on the police force in a small city with nearly 50,000 university students, you get a lot of experience with civil disorder. As we have seen this year, this disorder can often turn into a riot.


In this episode host Steve Kellams shares his experiences dealing with riots on the Indiana University campus and the lessons he has learned along the way. He'll examine the different types of riots, break down the various elements present in each one, and discuss the impact of police response to a volatile situation.
