Norm Stamper was a cop for 34 years and spent six of them as Seattle’s police chief. Stamper resigned over his handling of the 1999 World Trade Organization protests -- after he authorized the use of tear gas. Stamper has been a vocal advocate of police reform ever since. He tells Michel Martin how he became aware of what he calls the "dark side" of police culture and how to fix the problem.
