UndocuCarolina’s Distinguished Lecture series – Dr. Lisa Marie Cacho: “Trained to Kill: How Police Training Denied the Complex Innocence of Antonio Zambrano-Montes
November 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
UndocuCarolina will host Dr. Lisa Marie Cacho as part of the Distinguished Lecture Series. Dr. Cacho’s talk, “Trained to Kill: How Police Training Denied the Complex Innocence of Antonio Zambrano-Montes,” examines the police shooting of an undocumented Latino immigrant who was throwing rocks when he was shot. As an alternative to demands for more police training, Dr. Cacho offers the concept of “complex innocence” to help all of us – not just police officers – see people who commit crimes in a different light. She started with the premise that no shootings should be automatically justified and that all people – even if in the act of committing a crime – are complexly innocent.
