Open Phones After a Violent Week


During a portion of the hour usually devoted to Midday, WYPR carried live special coverage of the police ambush in Dallas. Five police officers were killed and seven injured after a protest in an ambush by snipers. With the shooting in Dallas and the recent deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling at the hands of police, we opened the phones to your calls and emails for the remainder of the hour.  

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
