Two main pegs for Brad this week. First, as Making A Murderer casts on spotlight on the legal system, are report released Wednesday by the National Register of Exonerations, reveals that 149 had their convictions overturned, and were exonerated for their crimes. 20% of these exonerations were for murder, and adds to the concern regarding the mishandling of cases and how district attorney offices are addressing the issue. Also, the murder of a 13-year-old near Virginia Tech. How did she come in contact with her alleged killers, and what warning does it offer for parents regarding the use of social media by their young children? And finally, of course the Super Bowl on Sunday. Brad addresses the massive security arrangements by officials.

More than 24 hours after the last of the votes had been cast, the Associated Press finally declared a winner in the Iowa Democratic caucuses. State party officials called the razor-thin margin between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders “historic,” though Clinton has been named the winner. So now, attention turns to the more moderate, less evangelical, New Hampshire. ABC’s Jim Ryan remains in Iowa, Aaron Katersky has moved on to New Hampshire, and both will have details.
