One unforgettable night in 2009, then-college student Alex Landau wandered into the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong cops on duty. Listen as he and his mother recount the events of that night and how it transformed their lives forever.
Landau has since made a full recovery from his injuries, and the city of Denver doled out a check for his hardship. But to this day, none of the officers involved in the incident have been held accountable for their actions that night.
He was lucky to make it out alive and to be able to share his story. Sadly, the same can't be said for Mike Brown in Ferguson and so many other black men who have paid the steepest price to lift up this important conversation.
