The Importance of Fully Quoting Chidike Okeem

As a criminologist and criminal justice professor, I occasionally get asked by people in the media to comment on issues of crime and justice. I have been invited on TV multiple times, but I always respectfully decline because—as most readers know—I have absolutely no desire to be famous. I prefer to do radio (the medium I have a face for) and to give quotes to media outlets because one gets the opportunity to flesh out points. As long as my words are presented fully, my points tend to come across fine. Some who desire to be extremely complimentary may go as far as to say that I am even insightful in long-form.
