Lots of discussion about policing today. Not because that's the way I intended it, it's just the way the show broke out.
We start with the shooting in LA where (allegedly) an off-duty LA Police Officer put hands on a kid who was trespassing on his property. I struggle ensued, and the officer pulled his gun. The gun went off, an apparent accident and the crowd that had gathered dissipated.
So was this an issue of a heavy handed on power hungry cop or is it a justified use of force? Today I'll tell you what I think, and I'm not sure you're going to like the answer.
From there we'll talk about a new law that will allow police in Tucson to arrest peaceful protesters to prevent potential violence. If I can think of any reason to use violence, it would be in defense of one of my God given rights. (Say the freedom of speech).
It's a great show today with lots of back and forth between Darren and I. I think you're going to enjoy it.
