County Agency Blamed for Child Deaths Undertakes Reform

Hosted by

Another scathing report on LA County's Department of Children and Family Services recounts 15 gruesome deaths and even a case of torture that could have been prevented if basic procedures were followed.  The report says caseworkers assigned to assess the dangers to foster children were "just doing their time" instead of heeding repeated warnings of continued abuse. Also, in another of our interviews with candidates for Mayor of Los Angeles we speak with the only Republican vying to lead a Blue City: Kevin James. On our rebroadcast of To the Point, has the South outgrown the voting rights act?
