4 women, 3 men
You know I always watch Adam vs. the Man. It's been so busy this week that I'm stil playing catch up and doubled up on two episodes tonight. This one I have to recommend because of Adam's report on the homeless man that the police beat to death in Fullterton, Calif. His father, Ron Thomas, is a former deputy and he issued this statement: "His death was gang-involved, the way I see it. A gang of rogue officers who brutally beat my son to death . . . The only thing we have left of our son is the blood in the gutter, that's all we have left."
It's appalling. Especially when you see what Kelly Thomas looked like when he was in the hospital (where he died) after the beating.
On The Diane Rehm Show today, the first hour found Susan Page (guest host) talking to Paul Taylor, Gary Burtless and Roderick Harrison. For the second hour, Susan Page spoke with Anne Trubek, Kitty Burns Florey, Tracey Bailey and Karen Epstein.
