Is the Moratorium on Murals Killing an LA Tradition?

Hosted by

The local tradition of outdoor murals started in East LA, and it's moved all the way to fashionable West Hollywood. In between, the City of Los Angeles tries to preserve older works as relics of culture. But new ones have run afoul of the anti-billboard ordinance, and City Hall paints them over, often at taxpayer expense. We try to unravel the contradictions. Also, two cops face criminal charges in the beating death of a homeless, mentally-ill man in Fullerton. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, President Obama addresses the United Nations as Palestinians seek UN membership.
