Skid Row Shooting, Big Water Fight in a Small Town, and “Blurred Lines” on Trial

Hosted by

We begin today with an in-depth look at the shooting death yesterday of a homeless man on Skid Row. What do we know about the incident and the man shot, and how is the situation stoking tensions between the Skid Row community and the LAPD? Next, a look at a small-town water fight in San Juan Capistrano that could have statewide implications for how we pay for water. Then, a trial is going on this week for a case brought by the family of Marvin Gaye against Robin Thicke over Thicke’s song “Blurred Lines.” Gaye’s family claims Thicke plagiarized Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got to Give it Up.” We look at why the case isn’t as cut and dried as it looks. And finally, in our weekly television roundup, a look at season three of House of Cards and more.
