Podcast #102: How to incentivize better policing

Being a cop is really tough. It’s also really risky. So how do we get the best possible policing and measured responses from a profession so high stress and life threatening?

Ruben Pacheco wrote in the Las Cruces Sun Times about bringing private insurance markets into the picture to cover officers like Geico covers you as a driver. This way the process of accountability becomes attached to the officer’s wallet, not the political process. It’s a revolutionary idea.

Podcast #101: Real talk on merit-based immigration

Bradley Polumbo is a Young Voices Advocate at UMass who recently wrote in Rare about the issue of immigration. He writes:

“So what’s the real reason Trump, and some Republicans, are so willing to embrace big government to keep “unskilled” immigrants out? Consider the fact that our president pushed the conspiracy that former President Obama wasn’t born in the US, once called for a blanket ban on Muslims entering the country, and was sued for housing discrimination against black people—it shouldn’t be hard to see why.”

Today he joined the YV Podcast to explain why he thinks Republicans are backing big government on immigration.
