You’ve seen the headlines, murder rates in U.S. major cities are up this year. Some are blaming gang activity. Some sociologists are saying that young urban teens have decided to settle disputes with a gun. There is also the ongoing dispute regarding pre-emptive police tactics, and whether the curtailment of some of the more aggressive measures may be a cause. And on top of all this, police officers themselves now appear to be an increasing target. Brad discusses this concerning trend of increased violence, why officers are not being pro-active as they should and what elements of this increase the police can do little about, which may go to bigger issues in our communities.

A Kentucky county clerk will be back in a courtroom Thursday. This time she’ll be facing contempt charges for refusing to follow court orders and issue gay marriage licenses. She could face jail time or steep fines. Rowan County clerk Kim Davis says issuing the licenses violates her religious freedom and had hoped the Supreme Court would uphold her claim to First Amendment rights in the matter. They didn’t.

In a letter published Tuesday by the Holy See, Pope Francis said he is allowing all rank-and-file priests to grant absolution during the Year of Mercy he has proclaimed, which runs December 8, 2015 until November 20, 2016. The Roman Catholic Church views abortion as such a grave sin that it put the matter of granting forgiveness for an abortion in the hands of a bishop, who could either hear the woman’s confession himself or delegate that to a priest who is expert in such situations. But now, the pontiff is making it possible for women to bypass this formalized process in the approaching special Year of Mercy while putting the stress on “contrite” hearts.

There was a conference call with the attorneys and the judge set a hearing on the ACLU motion for contempt on Thursday 11 a.m. Ashland, KY before Judge Bunning. The judge ordered Kim Davis and all of her deputy clerks to be present along with the attorneys involved.
