7/10/15 Podcast Rick Klein

New polls have him soaring… his shoot from the hip, I don’t care who it offends style is growing a fan-base… and frankly, it is clear nobody can tell Donald Trump what to do or what to say. This is somewhat of a unique political event, and nobody… not any politicians, nor even the journalists covering him, know quite how to respond or what to make of it. Rick discusses the early and quite astounding presidential campaign of Donald Trump.

The Baltimore mayor fired the troubled city’s police commissioner Wednesday, saying that a recent spike in homicide rates weeks after a black man died of injuries in police custody required a change in leadership. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake thanked Police Commissioner Anthony Batts for his service and announced that she was appointing Deputy Police Commissioner Kevin Davis as interim commissioner, saying that the city needed a change, and deserved better. The firing comes 2 1/2 months after the city broke out into riots following the death of Freddie Gray, who died in April of injuries he received in police custody. Six police officers have been criminally charged in Gray’s death.

The law enforcement activity at the house of Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle has brought the problem of child pornography back into the spotlight. In fact, while that search appears to be linked to an arrest of his former associate Russell Taylor, there is also news that the FBI had seized a child porn website with nearly 215,000 users. The FBI maintained the site for 2 weeks, while investigating its users. In other news, Brad discusses the murder of a young woman in San Francisco, gunned down by an undocumented immigrant arrested several times and ordered deported, but because of miscommunication between agencies and current law, still in the country. And finally, heroin use on the rise, as it’s cheap and accessible. Brad on the main factors contributing to this status.

The South Carolina House opened what could be its final debate over the Confederate flag Wednesday, deliberating a proposal that might remove the banner from the Capitol grounds before the end of the week. The House is under pressure to act after the state Senate passed its own measure, which is supported by Gov. Nikki Haley. But some Republicans proposed changes to the Senate bill that would preserve some kind of symbol in front of the Statehouse to honor their Southern ancestors

Police gathered Tuesday outside the Indiana home of Subway pitchman Jared Fogle. The FBI said it was investigating in the area where Jared Fogle lives. Their arrival comes two months after the director of Fogle’s foundation was arrested on federal child porn charges. Russell Taylor was charged with eight child porn counts. Fogle was not implicated. At the time he cut ties with Taylor and said he was shocked by the charges. An FBI spokeswoman morning confirmed that the agency was conducting a criminal investigation in the area, but she would not comment on the nature of the probe.
