Part One: Issues Facing Deaf Community

The shooting of a deaf Charlotte man has brought attention to a challenging area for the hearing impaired. National groups have called for better training for law enforcement. And there are other challenges the deaf have in dealing with the hearing world. We look into those in the first part of the program.
