On this edition of Independent Sources, we hear about how Haitian-born NYPD officers are helping to secure law and order in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that devastated the island nation. We talk to a film director who has turned his lens on one Mexican newspaper whose reporters seek to expose local drug cartels with their stories. Then we see how one organization is trying to help some Brooklyn residents go green.
