London Breed's Tough Love, Measles Outbreak Continues, Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye Interview

London Breed's Tough Love
London Breed, the new president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, is taking a tough stance on crime and violence in San Francisco. She made waves earlier this week when she told parents to turn in their kids if they're involved in violence. This comes after four men were shot earlier this month in Hayes Valley, part of the district she represents and grew up in. Breed talks to Scott Shafer about her vision for keeping San Franciscans safe.

Measles Outbreak Continues
As the number of measles cases from the outbreak that started in December at Disneyland continues to grow, so does the debate about parents opting out of vaccinating their children. Experts weigh in on the outbreak and what needs to be done to keep this airborne, highly infectious disease from spreading farther.
