What's next in the Aaron Campbell case? Also, an interview with Oregon Attorney General John Kroger


Tuesday night, Rev. Jesse Jackson spoke to over 1,000 Portlanders at Maranantha Church about the "execution" of Aaron Campbell, the most recent victim of a police shooting. Wednesday morning, several hundred community members marched on Mayor Sam Adam's office demand answers about police conduct the night of Campbell's death. Police Commissioner Dan Saltzman is considering suspending Officer Ronald Frashour. Meanwhile, Rev. LeRoy Haynes of the Albina Ministerial Alliance described the city hall action as the "first step of our resistance." This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann talks about what impacts the Jackson visit had on the Campbell case and how city leaders may respond.

Also this week, Jo Ann will be talking with Oregon Attorney General John Kroger about his agency's efforts to crack down on predatory mortgage practices.

The conversation doesn't end when the program does. You can join in additional discussion of the week's issue on our blog at kboo.fm/voicesfromtheedge (click on the "blog" tab). You'll find additional information, important links, comments from other listeners and commentary from Jo Ann and Dave. Have a question for our guests, but can't call in during the program?
