This week on Behind The Lens, Calvin Cains died in police custody in June and his mother sought body camera footage from on-scene officers through a lawsuit. Those recordings, she hopes, can show her sons final moments, before he was killed by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Our guests this week are Lens reporters Nick Chrastil, La’Shance Perry, Marta Jewson and managing editor Katy Reckdahl. 

Theme music by Podington Bear. Additional music Gulls and Turnstones by Podington Bear
