We heard this week from former Baltimore police Commissioner Anthony Batts for the first time since Mayor Rawlings-Blake fired him in July. Batts and two others spoke to nearly 600 students at a panel discussion Wednesday evening about justice in America at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg.

We thought you’d be interested in hearing some of the points Anthony Batts made at the college, and to get the view of a someone with a community perspective on Batts' three years heading Baltimore’s police force. City Councilman Brandon Scott, who represents the second district and is vice chair of the council’s public-safety committee, joins Sheilah by phone. 

Audio for this segment will be posted by noon.
