Tonight, the Alameda City Council will examine the circumstances surrounding the death of Raymond Zack, who intentionally drowned himself in San Francisco Bay on Memorial Day while police and firefighters stood by. We open the phone lines to get your responses to this tragedy. Should first-responders always try to save a life, regardless of policy or protocol?

Host: Michael Krasny
