55. Tim Tolka - Author, Blue Mafia

(Audio fixed, if there's an audio gap in the intro, re-download the episode)

Today my guest is Tim Tolka, author of Blue Mafia, which is best described by the closing line of the first chapter:

“This is the story of two police departments, their turbulent relationship with the local community, and how a 'crazy' lawyer risked everything to bring in a higher authority.”

Blue Mafia has many lessons for other cities in Ohio and across the nation. It is also a harrowing tale of how the gears of our legal and civic machinery can chew up activists, lawyers, and victims of police violence.
