32: Violence, Uninterrupted
It's the Brady Briefing, another time where JJ, all alone, talks about mass shootings, the murder of a violence interrupter, the ripple effects of gun violence, and a judicial nomination gone wrong. You know the deal--it's the weekly wrap up on gun violence and gun violence prevention for the week of December 7th to December 13th.
Today in this wrap-up, you'll learn about:
- the mass shooting in Jersey City;
- the mass shooting at a U.S. naval base in Florida;
- the murder of Clarence Venable, a violence interrupter;
- the long-term effects of gun violence, as 450 city employees having filed for workers’ compensation following the May 31st Virginia Beach massacre;
- and why Lawrence J.C. VanDyke being appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is dangerous.
