Barrett’s Jackson List, “Professor Meares’s lecture, entitled “Policing and Its Reform in the 21st Century,” addressed recent and historical United States events (including, beginning at 29:20, the Supreme Court’s June 20th decision in Utah v. Strieff), human experiences, academic research, psychology and communal education.”  The lecture, “preceded by brief introductions, and followed by audience questions and Meares answers,” is here.  Excerpts from “an interview that Professor Meares gave at the Robert H.
