Will Medicating the Mentally Ill Increase Public Safety? The raft of multiple shootings around the country has LA County Supervisors asking the legislature to expand what's called "Laura's Law ." It's named for a woman who worked at a mental health clinic in Nevada County and who was killed by a patient. The purpose of Laura's Law is to medicate mentally ill people who've been refusing treatment before they commit any crime. The legislature has not provided any funding and, so far, only Nevada County has implemented Laura's Law. But Los Angeles County does have a pilot program.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
