On October 10th, just a week before the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, two high school counselors in New York taught a session on conflict resolution at W.E.B. DuBois High School in Brooklyn. Afterwards, Raybblin Vargas and Dennis Flores walked their students to the local subway station. They witnessed two police officers beating up a young man, but by the end of the incident, Vargas and Flores themselves ended up at the hospital and in jail. In this Democracy Now exclusive, we’ll hear their story.

Guests:

  • Dennis Flores, School counselor, W.E.B. Dubois H.S.
  • Raybblin Vargas, School counselor, W.E.B. Dubois H.S.
