Why Lawrence O’Donnell Says You Should Take Acting Classes 

Video: Lawrence O’Donnell, television pundit and author of the recently rereleased book Deadly Force: A Police Shooting and My Family’s Search for the Truth, visits the Lifehacker studio to talk about why his book was rereleased now, how police brutality is hardly new news, and what you should do if you witness an event in which a police officer commits a crime.

Then we switch gears and find out about the best advice he’s ever received, how he decompresses from the news, and why voting, while great, should only be the beginning of your political activism.

Though some of what he says is specific to Americans, there’s still a ton of good advice for Australians as well.
