Candace Owens talks war on cops with police officer

In another fantastic episode of “The Candace Owens Show,” Ms. Owens interviews former police officer Brandon Tatum to discuss police brutality and the persistent war on cops. Mr. Tatum describes his journey to conservatism and his experiences as a black policeman in the video below.

The Center had the great privilege of hosting Candace for a lunch forum in May 2018. She inspired a crowd of 550 Minnesotans, and her dynamic speech can be viewed here.

Rewind to December 2016, when the Center hosted Heather Mac Donald to speak about her book, The War on Cops. We were honored to have 150 members of Minnesota law enforcement attend the event. You can listen to Heather’s speech here.

Ms. Mac Donald is returning to Minnesota on Wednesday, April 24 to discuss her new book, The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our Culture. Tickets are still available and can be purchased here.
