“All Enemies Foreign and Domestic” with Shahid Buttar
On this edition of Demanufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by Shahid Buttar, a writer, poet, musician, and executive director of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee.

Shahid also discusses some potential solutions to the growing police state. Do police dashboard and body cameras truly offer the public at opportunity at better accountability, or is this technology another brick in the panopticon wall?
