Portland has been protesting police brutality for 2 full months. In recent weeks, the addition of federal agents seems to have re-ignited the public's outrage. On today's show, Anna Griffin, vice president of news at Oregon Public Broadcasting, Anne Applebaum, staff writer at The Atlantic, historian and author of Twilight of Democracy: the Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism, and Dr. Shirley A. Jackson, professor of Black Studies at Portland State University, offer different perspectives on the clashes between federal agents and protesters in Portland, Oregon.
