The Move to Turn South LA Alleys into 'Parklets'

Hosted by

Lee Baca retires as Los Angeles County Sheriff tomorrow. Orange County Undersheriff John Scott will be sworn in to replace him until voters choose somebody else in June or November. We ask Scott about his promise to "restore the dignity" of the department in such a short time. Also, the new Farm Bill: good news for California prune producers, winemakers and almond ranchers; bad news for people who can't afford enough food. And could abandoned alleys be made into parks in South Los Angeles?

What's the future of the federal minimum wage, immigration reform and other items on his agenda?
