News Panel: Chevron Refinery Fire, Assault Weapon Legislation, and more

Watch Complete Episode: August 10, 2012 »

As the investigation into the cause of Monday's fire at Chevron's Richmond refinery continues, the community, environmentalists and elected officials are outraged over the warning system and possible health risks. Gas prices are already rising as a result and could go up to $4.00 per gallon within a week.   In the wake of this week's shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, Senator Leland Yee renews attention to his bill that aims to close the loophole in California's assault weapons ban. Meanwhile, the Bay Area Sikh community speaks out against ongoing discrimination.   Tech giants Apple and Samsung continue to battle in a San Jose courtroom over patent rights for the design of their smart phones and tablets.  The outcome of the trial could influence the types of mobile devices available to consumers.
