FROM THIS EPISODE

School opened this morning on a campus still reeling from the shooting deaths of three people last Friday. Counseling is being provided for shaken students, faculty and staff members. To establish the closest thing possible to business as usual, graduation will be held as scheduled tomorrow — but with uniformed security. The library, where the shooter was gunned down by police, is still closed. KCRW is back in its offices and we're broadcasting from our own basement studios. We hear how the recovery has been going today.

Image-for-WWLA.jpgOn our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, revelations about massive data collection by the National Security Agency have re-ignited debate about striking a balance between personal privacy and secrecy in the interests of national security.  We hear about the latest leaker of classified information and get very different accounts of how the law and the Constitution apply.

Main Topic Santa Monica College Wakes Up from a Nightmare 24 MIN, 9 SEC

Just after noon last Friday, John Zawahri, was shot to death by police in the library at Santa Monica College after a shooting spree which began in a nearby neighborhood and during which he killed five other people -- three on the campus.  As the campus was evacuated, students, faculty and staff were marched passed his body lying on a sidewalk. 

Two of those who were shot were the long-time groundskeeper, Carlos Franco, and his daughter, Marcela, who was on campus to pick up textbooks for summer school. Franco was best known on campus for maintaining a popular rose garden off the main quadrangle. The college has set up the Carlos Franco Family Memorial Fund. (Donations may also be mailed to Santa Monica College Foundation, 1900 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90405.)
