Coming Soon: Embedded On Police Videos


So often, it seems like there's a new video of a deadly police encounter in the news. But those videos only tell us part of the story. Embedded is back March 9, and we'll have three episodes that each tell the story of a different video. We'll find out what happened before, during and after. And we'll explore what that tells us about policing in America.

episode 1: Police Videos: Charlotte


On Sept. 14, 2013, Jonathan Ferrell was shot and killed by a police officer named Randall "Wes" Kerrick in Charlotte, North Carolina. Like a lot of recent police shootings, much of what we know about what happened comes from a video. But the way you see that video depends on who you are.

episode 2: Police Videos: Flagstaff


On Dec. 28, 2014, Robert "Bobby" Smith shot police officer Tyler Stewart and himself in Flagstaff, Arizona. The video of that shooting has since taken on a life of its own. Police use it to talk about the dangers they face every day. Other people see it as a painful loop that will never stop playing.

episode 3: Police Videos: Cincinnati


On April 16, 2015, police officer Jesse Kidder encountered a murder suspect named Michael Wilcox in a suburb outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. What happened next was caught on video and surprised a lot of people, including police. And the incident tells us a lot about how these videos have changed us.
