The Good Fight Against Police Brutality, Culture, and Racism with Carl Douglas, Esq.

In this episode, legendary Civil Rights attorney Carl Douglas of Douglas Hicks Law explains his front on the war for justice for nearly 40 years: bringing police brutality cases. A disciple of the late attorney Johnnie Cochran, Carl discusses how successful change has to do with dealing with police culture as much as diversity and recognizing institutional racism. He also discusses his latest high-profile case: that of Dijon Kizzee, a black man shot 15 times in the back by L.A. County sheriffs. Carl shares how he decides which cases to take, how he approaches jury selection, and calls the O.J. Simpson case the “elephant in the room” he has learned to embrace. Finally, he provides needed perspective that allows those working to end racism hope going forward.
