LA Crime Is Up… or Is It?

Hosted by

Anybody who's watched crime dramas knows that crime statistics can be deceiving — and politicized. The LAPD's "Compstat" system may not be as good as advertised. The latest numbers show an increase in violent crime last year. Is that because crimes in previous years were under-reported — by mistake or on purpose?

Also, the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show has a new focus this year: self- driving cars.  We talk to a man who let an automatic chauffer take him to Vegas from Silicon Valley.
