The killing of a woman by an undocumented Mexican immigrant has injected San Francisco into the presidential campaign. Details of the incident are undetermined and the legal circumstances are controversial — all creating a perfect political storm. Wouldn't other cities have some the same? 

Also, Howard Buffet, son of Warren Buffet, visits KCRW to talk about hunger in Los Angeles County.

Crime and Political Spin in Sanctuary Cities 22 MIN, 36 SEC

US Senator Dianne Feinstein is the former Mayor of San Francisco, but she's among the politicians lining up to condemn the city in the aftermath of the shooting death of a young woman. It's all about the undocumented Mexican immigrant the Sheriff released from custody — rather than turning him over to immigration authorities -- despite a record of felonies and multiple deportations. Carla Marinucci of the San Francisco Chronicle is reporting a story with long-term, far-reaching political consequences.
