Homicide Charges in Baltimore

Hosted by

The Maryland State Attorney for Baltimore today charged six police officers with crimes ranging from assault to second degree murder in the death of Freddie Gray. Demonstrators in Baltimore are cheering that quick action. Guest host Barbara Bogaev looks at what's next in the legal case and whether it will buoy the nationwide protest movement against police violence. 

Also, ten years ago Utah promised it would end chronic homelessness in the state by 2015 using a simple but controversial approach which places the hardest-to-help people in apartments -- often ahead of needy families. Some cities agree the strategy works and it even saves taxpayer's money.
