George Floyd, Excited Delirium and the Medicalization of Police Violence

Season 2024 Episode 6233 | 16m 59s

Aisha Beliso-De Jesus is a co-founder of Princeton’s Center on Transnational Policing. Her new book "Excited Delirium" exposes a medical term that has long been used as a cover for police misconduct -- as in the case of George Floyd, whose murder by police four years ago this weekend sparked general outrage. The author and academic discusses with Michel Martin.
