A North Charleston, South Carolina police officer who shot and killed a driver he had stopped last weekend for a broken tail light will be charged with murder after police received a video of the incident. The officer was identified as Patrolman 1st Class Michael Thomas Slager. North Charleston mayor Keith Summey, speaking at a news conference Monday, reminded people one officer who made a bad decision should not be a reflection of the entire force: Out of 343 police officers, this is a bad decision by one, he said.

As he planted a backpack containing a bomb near a group of children, Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev made a coldblooded decision aimed at punishing America for its wars in Muslim countries, federal prosecutor Aloke Chakravarty told the jury during closing arguments Monday at Tsarnaev’s death penalty trial. “This was a cold, calculated terrorist act. This was intentional. It was bloodthirsty.” Defense attorney Judy Clarke countered by arguing, as she did at the trial’s outset, that Tsarnaev took part in the attack but did so under the malevolent influence of his now-dead older brother, Tamerlan. The jury is expected to begin deliberations on Tuesday morning.

4/6/15 Podcast Devin Dwyer

The agreement on a framework for a nuclear program deal with Iran was touted as historic by President Obama last week. Even so, many in Congress are not so sure, and want to make sure they have a chance to comb thru the details before agreeing to lift any sanctions. Sen. Bob Corker, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has drawn up a bill that will give Congress a 60-day review period once an agreement is signed, and says he is close to getting enough votes to make the bill veto-proof.

4/6/16 Podcast Steve Roberts

As presidencies wind down, thoughts about legacies tend to wind up. For President Obama, domestically, there’s recovery from the economic crisis, his Affordable Care Act, even perhaps immigration reform. But in foreign affairs, well, there’s that huge chill with Russia, ending two wars but now jumping back into Iraq, al Qaeda now joined by several offshoots, and forget peace in the Middle East. Which brings us to Iran, and concerns from some in Congress that the president may not have negotiated hard enough, concerned on closing a deal for legacy’s sake. Steve discusses whether a presidents’ concern over legacy has any influence on those last couple years in office.
