Kojo speaks with Arlington Board Chair Katie Cristol about the Amazon HQ2 effect and D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine about his probe into the local Catholic Church and his office's legal challenges against the Trump administration.
In 2008, two Metropolitan Police Department officers responded to a noise complaint for a house party in D.C. When they arrived, contradictory accounts among partygoers who said that a woman named “Peaches” invited them led the officers to arrest 21 attendees for unlawful entry. While the charges were ultimately dropped, 16 of those arrested sued the District, sparking a decade-long court battle that ended last week with a Supreme Court ruling defending the police officers’ actions. Kojo discusses how this party wound up in the nation’s highest court and what the judges’ unanimous ruling says about policing in local neighborhoods.
