Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff October 28, 2020

Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s home edition recorded live-to-tape via Skype on this date, October 28th, 2020.

Monday, October 26th Philadelphia citizen, Walter Wallace Jr. was shot dead by police. His killing was caught on camera and has sparked demonstrations of both the peaceful and violent kind. Wallace was a black man, suffering mental problems. He was known to police, and his family had specifically asked for medical assistance WITHOUT police. Both the shooting and demonstrations have become a part of the political debate, as America nears the November 3rd presidential election.

Dave Lindorff is an award-winning journalist, author, and founding member of the media collective, ThisCan’tBeHappening.net.

Lindorff’s book titles include, ‘The Case for Impeachment: Legal Arguments for Removing President George W. Bush from Office’ and ‘This Can’t Be Happening! Resisting the Disintegration of American Democracy.’ Dave lives just outside Philadelphia and is following the situation there.

Today, Dave Lindorff answers the burning question, “Is Philadelphia Burning?”
