West Nile Virus: Mosquitoes and Other “Pests”

Hosted by

Three people have died this year in the worst outbreak of West Nile Virus in Orange County history. Why is it so vulnerable to infestation? Widespread spraying for mosquitos is planned for densely populated Santa Ana, and landowners who refuse inspectors access to suspect properties will be subject to court warrants.

Also, we’ll talk about a documentary that traces the history of using SWAT teams for local police, from LA's Watts Riots of 1965 to Ferguson, Missouri.
