One Detroit’s Bill Kubota talks with two local Ukrainian American attorneys, Natalia Kujan Gentry and Dan Terleckyj, to learn about their efforts to tell the real stories of the Ukraine-Russia conflict overseas, and their battle to fight back against the misinformation being spread online. Plus, they share the support they’re providing to others and the change they want to see.
The Detroit Police Department and Crime Stoppers of Michigan have a new weapon to help them close investigations and solve crimes. The two organization’s new TV show and web program, Detroit Rewards TV, plans to get Detroit residents involved by rewarding them up to $1,000 for anonymously reporting tips that help solve a criminal investigation. The goal, the Detroit Police Department says, is to encourage citizens to speak up if they have information about a crime.
One Detroit’s Will Glover sits down with BridgeDetroit reporter Bryce Huffman to talk about the possible positives and consequential problems that could come from the new Detroit Rewards TV program.
