News Panel: California's prison realignment plan, SF's race for DA, and more

California's groundbreaking prison realignment plan takes effect Saturday, October 1st, and counties are frantically preparing for the influx of low-level offenders to be re-directed from the state's crowded prison system. San Francisco's race for district attorney heats up with calls for DA George Gascon to release confidential documents related to DNA analysis in the San Francisco Police crime lab. Parents, teachers and students protest the closure and consolidation of several Oakland elementary schools, which would relocate almost 1,000 kids and save the cash strapped district about $2 million.
