FROM THIS EPISODE

The "Free Speech" movement of the 1960's started at the University of California. Tomorrow, UC's Board of Regents will hear arguments about how much free speech should be limited to protect students from what's labeled "intolerance." There are passionate differences over just what that means — especially when it comes to strongly held views on campus about the ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. 

Also, the population is growing on Death Row in California, but inmates are dying of old age. Once again, voters are being asked to eliminate the Death Penalty.

Writing New Rules for Speech on Campus 18 MIN, 36 SEC

After a series of troubling incidents on campuses of the University of California, Jewish groups asked the Board of Regents to adopt the State Department's definition of anti-Semitism. UC President Janet Napolitano said she personally supported the State Department definition, which prohibits "demonization of Israel" or saying Israel has no right to exist, but that created an uproar.

Anti-Death Penalty Ballot Measure in the Works 7 MIN, 16 SEC

There are more than 740 inmates on Death Row in California and the population continues to grow. But there has not been an execution since 2006. If the so-called Justice that Works Act qualifies for next year’s ballot, voters may be asked to eliminate the death penalty in favor of life without the possibility of parole. Mike Farrell is a veteran actor in movies and TV and long-time president of Death Penalty Focus.
