New UW head football coach Jimmy Lake is taking what could be described as a "progressive" move between police officers and his players who are black and brown. Meanwhile, Seattle activists are taking a decidedly segregationist approach to police officers, John Carlson points out in this podcast.

Segregation versus integration takes the spotlight with police in Seattle, Seattle Schools (and Tacoma Schools) and Metro Transit are segregating in Seattle but the State's highest paid employee is actually integrating UW students with more engagement and interaction with police officers,

why can't the Seattle political "left wing" build bridges with police instead of putting up walls against police? The police reform politics between Democrats and Republicans in Congress, how Republican US Senator Tim Scott is bringing his perspective as a black man to the police reform debate/legislation, why Scott's ideas deserve to prevail.
