In Front of Our Eyes
In March 2021, the first of the former officers charged in the killing of George Floyd went on trial in Minnesota. Police officers are rarely prosecuted in such cases — and the world was watching. MPR News, which has followed this case in detail from the beginning, brings listeners updates on the monumental case, and the consequences it holds for the city and the country. Created in collaboration with American Public Media.
In July 2016, the world watched a man die, live on their phones, after a traffic stop in suburban Minnesota. This is the story of that man, Philando Castile, and the officer, Jeronimo Yanez, who is about to go on trial in his death. It sits at the intersection of race, policing, justice and safety in America. A lot can happen in 74 seconds.

On Rivers of Oil from Minnesota Public Radio News, we’ll look at those pipelines buried beneath our feet, how they’ve come to the forefront of an epic tug of war between reliance and risk, and how we all have a role to play in this story.
