A Salt Lake City police officer requested an alternative to riding in Sunday's Pride Parade, citing personal and religious objections. He's since resigned from the department and the incident is raising questions about the duties of law enforcement. 

On Wednesday at 12:15 p.m., Sgt. Todd Royce of the Utah Department of Public Safety, Dave Attridge of SLCC's Institute of Public Safety and Tribune reporter Erin Alberty join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to discuss the ethics, training and responsibilities of cops sworn to serve the public.
