Nightside with Dan Rea - Rundown for August 14, 2020

Police Confidence Is Way Down. According to a recent Gallup poll, Americans’ confidence in police has fallen to a historic low. The poll reveals that confidence in police has fallen 5 points to 48%, making it the first time in the 27 year trend that it falls below the majority level. In the past, confidence in police has been as much as 64%. This drop in confidence is largely in part due to the death of George Floyd, who died this year at the hands of police. Furthermore, in this current poll, there is a large racial divide where 56% of White adults say they have a great deal of confidence in police whereas only 19% of Black adults say the same. Do these findings concern you?

Catching And Killing Coronavirus. A team of researchers at the University of Houston along with the Medistar Corporation have developed a super-heated air filter that can “catch and kill” Coronavirus! The nickel-based foam filter heats up to 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit) as part of a heated air disinfection system, effectively removing and killing 99.8% of COVID-19 viral particles. Dan checks back in with Dr. Garrett Peel, the Director of Medistar about any updates as to whether air filters have started being installed in various schools, offices, and the like. Would you feel safer going back to work or school if this was installed in your environment?
