Preserving Civil Liberties, Protecting Public Safety

As part of the Greenwich Reads Together initiative, US Attorney James Letten will talk at the library about his experiences in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  He was responsible for prosecuting the policemen accused of shooting five unarmed citizens during Martial Law. This incident raised serious questions concerning the suspension of civil liberties during emergencies.  This program will be held in the Cole Auditorium on Tuesday, April 24, at 7 pm in the Cole Auditorium.  Admoission is free.
