The Drs: Police Device Can See Through Walls
The Doctors discussed whether law enforcement should be able to watch what you’re doing behind the walls of your own home. There’s a new tool police agencies can use to see through the walls of your house, called the Range-R. Dozens of police departments across the country already have the tools, according to USA Today. The website says they use a stepped frequency continuous wave. According to the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, the tool is legal if they have proper clearance. Essentially, they would still need a search warrant.
In the wrong hands, it could be incredibly scary, but in the right hands, it could keep law enforcement individuals safe. The device can see 50 feet and behind a wall, but the question is whether law enforcement could even be trusted with it.
The Drs: Student Assaults On Campuses
The Doctors then moved on to talk about the increase in assaults on college campuses in recent years. A new study at the University of North Dakota polled 82 males and 31.7% admitted they would force a woman to have relations if there was no consequence. Approximately 13.6% of them said they would commit assault if there was no consequence.
Dr Stork said the study made him feel really sad and Dr Ashton said whether the numbers close to reality or not, it’s a call to action for parents. She said she considers it her obligation as a mother of son to teach him how to act responsibly and respectfully. She said we need to start having the conversation with their sons and they have an obligation.
Dr Stork said kids are influenced by their peers, so before a man ever enters the “real world,” he needs to know the difference between right and wrong. He encouraged everyone at home to have the conversation with their sons.
