SAN ANTONIO – Editor’s note: See the full poll, or take the survey yourself, at Bexar Facts’ website. Read analysis about the latest poll, including widespread support for police reform and a decline in concern over the coronavirus pandemic.
The death of George Floyd was captured on camera, and then mourned on the streets of America, with chants of “Black Lives Matter,” “Say His Name,” “No Justice-No Peace.”
Some San Antonians and South Texans joined in the marches and protests, but what are the realities of police brutality and systemic racism in the Alamo City? It is the subject of the latest Bexar Facts-KSAT-Rivard Report Poll, and was the focus of a KSAT town hall on race and policing on Tuesday, June 23.
We want you to join in the conversation, which will include local activists, policymakers and experts, as well as KSAT12 anchors Isis Romero, Myra Arthur and Steve Spriester.
Which police reforms do you support? Are chokeholds and tear gas necessary tactics for police officers to use on protesters? Do you feel safe when you see a police cruiser in the neighborhood? Is the police union helping protect “bad officers?”
Send a video-taped question or email to email@example.com to have your voice heard — and maybe have your question asked on-air — or submit your question in the prompt below.
