6/11/15 Podcast Brad Garrett

As the search continues for those two escaped killers in Upstate New York, Brad discusses the procedures and strategies law enforcement uses that prove most effective in these cases. In some similar situations previously, it has often been fellow ex-con friends looking for a chit from their parole officer that have turned in escapees once they are contacted, but with the $100k reward already out there, perhaps these guys know better, and are keeping to themselves. And on a different story, that police officer who pointed a gun at unarmed teens at a pool party in Texas. Without a video of the incident, chances are the matter would have been handled locally and quietly, if it even rose to that level at all. But the smartphones/social media combo has certainly changed the paradigm that police officers work in… almost to the point of a real-time civilian review board… Brad discusses if this is a good thing, or a bad thing, or a bit of both.

6/11/15 Podcast Jim Ryan

Two little girls who wanted to raise money for a Father’s Day gift for their dad had their goal temporarily sidelined when city ordinances and state law stepped in to intervene. Eight-year-old Andria Green and her little sister, Zoey, decided to open a curbside stand in their hometown of Overton, Texas, and sell lemonade and kettle corn. They had been open for an hour and had raised $25 when the police showed up, and shut them down for missing permits and code violations. No free lemonade for those officers. ABC’s Jim Ryan has the details. (Jim also can handle the latest on the pool party shooting matter)

Speaking Tuesday at the Catholic Hospital Association’s annual conference in Washington DC, President Obama renewed his argument that the Affordable Care Act was here to stay, and if anybody tries to tear it down, the consequences will not be well received by those millions already benefitting from the program. In a sense, the president is daring the Supreme Court, and ostensibly Congressional Republicans (who could fix things legislatively), to overturn the key provision in their ruling later this month. The White House has already indicated there is no contingency plan should the provision regarding state exchanges be struck down.

New York could become the first U.S. city. to require warning labels on high-salt dishes at chain restaurants, taking campaigns to cut down on salt into new territory, health officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The city’s Health Department will propose Wednesday that all chain restaurants add a salt-shaker-like symbol on menus next to products that contain more than the recommended daily limit of 2,300 milligrams of sodium, about 1 teaspoon of salt. Public health advocates hailed the proposal as a pioneering step to tackle a major problem. Salt producers called it off-base.

New York State Police said they’re following hundreds of leads in an attempt to find two murderers who escaped from a maximum security prison. An industrial training supervisor at the prison has been interviewed and removed from her post. Police were spotted at the woman’s home which is about an hour from the prison. Police began their search near the manhole from which the two men emerged following their subterranean escape. A man who lives near it told ABC News he saw two men he thought were hoodlums carrying what he thought was a guitar case. He said he confronted the men, who told him they were going in the wrong direction. Then they took off running.
