Guinness is coming to Maryland, but the state's existing craft brewers are uncertain about what the move might mean for them.

At last week’s swearing-in ceremony for members of the D.C. Council, Black Lives Matters protesters stood in the front row, holding signs that read “#JAVONHALL” and #RELEASETHETAPE,” referencing the fatal Christmas Day shooting of D.C. resident Gerald Javon Hall by police. Just days after the protest, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser acquiesced and released body camera footage of the officers at the scene. Her decision comes a few months after a similar decision to release footage from the scene of the shooting of Terrence Sterling, another black man recently killed by police in D.C. While some celebrate the release of the footage and the transparency that comes along with it, others say it can place officers in danger. We explore the local debates surrounding body cameras and police brutality reignited by the two men’s deaths.
