S.F. Police Shooting Update
There is a new video of a San Francisco police shooting that killed a man last week. Several officers fired at 26-year-old Mario Woods, who the Police Department says was carrying a knife and was a suspect in a stabbing earlier in the day. The video was released today by John Burris, the attorney representing Woods' family. He filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Police Department this morning. Joe Marshall, a member of the San Francisco Police Commission, discusses the need for changes to Police Department policies with Thuy Vu.
Guns and Politics
In a prime-time address to the nation this week, President Obama once again called for tougher restrictions on the sale of assault weapons. In the wake of the San Bernardino shootings, gun control has come to the forefront as an issue in the presidential campaign, with Republican candidates vowing to block any new legislation. Scott Shafer, senior editor of KQED's California Politics and Government Desk, and KQED's political reporter, Marisa Lagos, discuss how the San Bernardino attacks are affecting the political debate.
As you no doubt noticed, rain fell in the Bay Area this week. Any amount of rain is welcome at this point, given California's four-year drought. And meteorologists say a lot more is on the way. Paul Rogers, managing editor of KQED's Science unit and environment writer for the San Jose Mercury News, has the latest on the El Niño forecast.
