12/31/15 Podcast Brad Garrett

In Podcasts

It’s become somewhat of a cliché, as we discuss security concerns in regards to the New Year’s Eve celebration in New York’s Times Square. But the terror threat has evolved to include soft targets, venues that aren’t nationally known, or for that matter packed with thousands of people. And while most of the focus involves extremist terror groups, the long-feared homegrown threat appears to have come to fruition, not to mention simply misguided individuals with violent intentions and the ability to get their hands on a gun. Now even just a threat, even with questionable credibility, can close a school district. Brussels so rocked by its recent terror troubles, their New Year’s Eve festivities cancelled with word of a possible attack. Brad discusses security measures and tools being deployed that are effective, but as the dawn of a new year comes, where the vulnerabilities lie, and the preventive limitations exist.

A white Chicago police officer charged with murder in the 2014 fatal shooting of black teenager Laquan McDonald pleaded not guilty Tuesday. Jason Van Dyke is “hanging in there” and wants to tell his side of what happened so he’s not seen “as this cold-blooded killer,” defense attorney Dan Herbert said after the court hearing. Herbert added that they haven’t ruled out asking for a change of venue. The case is in Cook County Criminal Court in Chicago where demonstrators have staged marches protesting the shooting and how it’s been handled. Late Tuesday, a small group of demonstrators marched to the private home of Mayor Rahm Emanual, who returned home from vacation.

Ethan Couch, the Texas teenager given probation for four intoxication-manslaughter convictions, is to return to the United States from Mexico on Wednesday. Couch, 18, was taken into custody in Puerto Vallarta Monday evening after spending eleven days on the run from local, state and federal law enforcers. Couch’s mother, Tanya, was also arrested and could face criminal charges of helping her son to avoid apprehension. Couch had a blood/alcohol level three times the legal limit when he killed four pedestrians with his pickup truck in 2013. His lawyer argued that Couch’s privileged upbringing left him unable to tell right from wrong before the crash. ABC’s Jim Ryan will have the latest.
