    This is the weakest pathetic interview on this subject I have seen to date. Winters simply served Mr. Samad his lines to amplify….not a single hard question like “do you believe that the community should wait until most of the evidence is released before deciding who was at fault”…or ” why do you believe that Chicago with it’s racially diverse police force have a higher death rate than Furguson..mainly black on black”….on and on….your interview, in my opinion as a former Des Moines resident, was a farse.
