The LAPD and the Dodger Stadium Beating Case

Hosted by

Arraignment has been postponed for two Southern California men arrested Thursday and charged with severely beating Giants fan Bryan Stow on opening day at Dodger Stadium. Guest host Terrence McNally asks why an innocent man was originally charged and held since May. Was this due to the high profile nature of the case or does this sort of rush to judgment happen all the time? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, each party will deliver its own debt ceiling plan, but who can deliver the votes?
