Shutdowns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the virus's spread.  However, social isolation and loss of income has led to heightened tensions, an increased number of protests, and a growing number of cases of domestic violence.  Washtenaw County Sheriff Jerry Clayton joined WEMU's David Fair for a conversation about these topics and more.
