Episode 8, with Queena Kim (The California Report), Joshua Johnson (KQED News) and Dan Brekke (News Fix blog guy). We talk about:
A police panel's ruling in Los Angeles that found an officer's fatal shooting of a mentally ill man was not justified.
And then: The Berkeley Police Department releases a report justifying its use of force during Black Lives Matter protests last December.
And then: The pros and cons of a San Francisco ordinance that would require health warnings in soda advertising.
Plus: Lightning Round mentions of stories we love:
- A profile of San Francisco poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti by NPR's Richard Gonzalez.
- Fresno County native Juan Felipe Herrera is appointed poet laureate of the United States.
- And the San Francisco Examiner, just a ghost of its semistoried self, turns 150.
