FROM THIS EPISODE

LA County District Attorney Jackie Lacey faces no credible challenger yet in this year's bid for re-election, but she is facing increased political pressure. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck wants her to file charges against one of his own officers in a controversial killing — an action he's never taken before. Political activists are waiting for her decision.

Later on the program, Governor Brown's approval ratings just might depend on the weather, and California Republicans just might have a big voice in the race for the White House.

Politics and Police Shootings 9 MIN, 57 SEC

Last month, LA District Attorney Jackie Lacey declined to file charges against a CHP officer captured on video pummeling a mentally-ill woman who was on her back alongside the 10 Freeway. Activists have criticized her for that decision. Now, there's new pressure from an unlikely direction. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck wants Lacey to file charges against one of his own. Officer Clifford Proctor shot an unarmed, homeless man in the back — a killing that was also captured on video.
