Main Topic LAPD Gang Officers Won't Disclose Their Finances 13 MIN, 56 SEC

Here in the gang capital of the nation, the Los Angeles Police Department has been making progress, with an 11.1 percent drop in gang-related crime last year alone. But advances like that could be at risk because so many highly trained officers have dropped out of specialized gang units. They have refused to comply with financial disclosure rules required by a federal consent decree after the so-called "Rampart Division scandal" ten years ago.

From Peace to Violence on the Streets of CairoAfter nine days of peaceful protest in Cairo, Tahrir Square erupted in violence today, just hours after President Hosni Mubarak said he would not run for re-election. At 2 in the afternoon, pro-Mubarak forces attacked anti-government demonstrators in Tahrir Square. We hear about the developing scene in Egypt and about repercussions in other Middle Eastern countries. (Listen to today's full To the Point discussion about the situation in Egypt.)
