His recent positions as staff psychiatrist in two inner city. Milwaukee hospitals, engaged him at ground zero with this country's fastest acceleration of homicides, gang violence and police confrontations with the mainly black citizenry, making him uniquely qualified to address the issues facing law enforcement in urban centers.
