Has LA's 'Tough on Crime' Era Come to an End?

Hosted by

Three-time LA District Attorney Steve Cooley is stepping down at a time when both crime and public resources are on the decline. In Tuesday's final election, two veterans of Cooley's office are running to be his replacement. They are Chief Deputy Jackie Lacey and Alan Jackson, head of the Major Crimes Unit. (They have declined to debate, so we hear from them one at a time, and have chosen the order by a flip of the coin.)
