Walker to Discusses Civil Liberties Records of Obama, Romney
Omaha - A comparison of President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney is the subject of a public lecture and discussion from University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) criminology and criminal justice Professor Emeritus Samuel Walker.
Walker’s lecture, which coincides with his new book, “Presidents and Civil Liberties from Wilson to Obama: A Story of Poor Custodians,” will be held on Constitution Day, Monday, Sept. 17 on the main floor of the UNO Criss Library at 7 p.m.
The lecture will use the research Walker tapped for his book to address the civil liberties records of both the president and his challenger. Walker’s book is the first comprehensive treatment of presidents’ handling of civil liberties in the 20th and 21st centuries.
