San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon says around 50 percent of all robberies in the city last year were stolen smartphones. He wants phone companies to install a "kill switch" that renders a phone inoperable after it has been stolen - and Apple announced on Monday that it would be the first smartphone manufacturer to do so. Gascon, a former San Francisco police chief, joins us to talk about cell phone theft as well as his views on immigration reform, crime in the Bay Area and other issues.
