A day after the Republican National Committee chairman asked Donald Trump to tone down his anti-Latino rhetoric, Trump’s campaign has stubbornly insisted he would not back off. Trump doubled down on the negative characterization earlier in the week, and pretty much has taken to aggressively jabbing back at anyone who criticizes anything he says. Thursday, members of the Latino community, along with local and national politicians, gathered in front of the site of Trump’s newest hotel to protest his controversial comments. And Trump continues to do interviews, where he shows no signs of backing down, and hurls insults at many of those who disagree with him.

New polls have him soaring… his shoot from the hip, I don’t care who it offends style is growing a fan-base… and frankly, it is clear nobody can tell Donald Trump what to do or what to say. This is somewhat of a unique political event, and nobody… not any politicians, nor even the journalists covering him, know quite how to respond or what to make of it. Rick discusses the early and quite astounding presidential campaign of Donald Trump.

The Baltimore mayor fired the troubled city’s police commissioner Wednesday, saying that a recent spike in homicide rates weeks after a black man died of injuries in police custody required a change in leadership. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake thanked Police Commissioner Anthony Batts for his service and announced that she was appointing Deputy Police Commissioner Kevin Davis as interim commissioner, saying that the city needed a change, and deserved better. The firing comes 2 1/2 months after the city broke out into riots following the death of Freddie Gray, who died in April of injuries he received in police custody. Six police officers have been criminally charged in Gray’s death.

The law enforcement activity at the house of Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle has brought the problem of child pornography back into the spotlight. In fact, while that search appears to be linked to an arrest of his former associate Russell Taylor, there is also news that the FBI had seized a child porn website with nearly 215,000 users. The FBI maintained the site for 2 weeks, while investigating its users. In other news, Brad discusses the murder of a young woman in San Francisco, gunned down by an undocumented immigrant arrested several times and ordered deported, but because of miscommunication between agencies and current law, still in the country. And finally, heroin use on the rise, as it’s cheap and accessible. Brad on the main factors contributing to this status.
