***Given the Derek Chauvin guilty verdict for murdering George Floyd, this week we are revisiting a conversation which took place with Lt. Colonel (ret.) Dave Grossman that originally aired here on The Chauncey DeVega Show on April 28, 2016.
Grossman has been prominently featured in these recent discussions of how America’s police are trained to use lethal and other force.***
Former United States Army Ranger and Lieutenant Colonel (retired) Dave Grossman is one of the world's leading experts on the psychology of killing and combat. He is the author of several books including On Killing and On Combat.
Grossman usually travels approximately 300 days a year, where in seminars and workshops he shares his insights on "killology" with military special forces and elite law enforcement personal from around the world.
Lt. Colonel Grossman discusses mass shootings, America's culture of violence, if armed teachers help to prevent school violence, and what he believes is the root cause of bad behavior by America’s police and other law enforcement.
Chauncey DeVega reflects on the Derek Chauvin guilty verdict and what real justice would look like for George Floyd and other black and brown victims of police thuggery and brutality.
Chauncey also highlights how the Jim Crow Republican Party’s neofascist assault on multiracial democracy and freedom continues to escalate – this time by making it “legal” for their followers to use vehicles as weapons against Black Lives Matter, anti-fascists, and other pro-democracy forces.
And Chauncey DeVega shares his reviews of Mortal Kombat, Godzilla vs. Kong, Nobody, and other movies at the local cineplex.
