Standoff Resolved, Unemployment Versus Workforce Numbers and More

Before taking a few days off, Greg Bishop hosts three hours of liberty-minded talk from 9 to noon on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield!

Standoff resolved

Sangamon County Undersheriff Jack Campbell will join the show to provide more details about the resolution of an armed standoff near Riverton Tuesday night. County deputies brought out their newly acquired Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) armored vehicle. This is the same vehicle used in war zones to protect soldiers from improvised explosive devices. Critics say civilian law enforcement having military machinery is overkill. We'll talk with Campbell about those concerns and where local law enforcement will draw the line on continued militarization.

 

We'll also talk with Springfield Police Internal Affairs head Lt. Chris Mueller. We won't necessarily talk about IA, or even ILEAS and their "Bearcat" vehicle, except to tell you where the armored vehicle will be during a Law Enforcement Torch Run fundraiser to benefit Special Olympics.

Unemployment versus workforce numbers

We'll hear from an economist to lay out the specifics about the ironic instances of how unemployment numbers are skewed by the numbers of workforce participants leaving. Why are they leaving and why should we be weary of some who tout the unemployment numbers as signs of a growing economy? We'll break that down during Bishop On Air!

Paint the streets

WMAY will be painting a square downtown as part of the Springfield Area Arts Association. What should it be? We'll compile your suggestions as to what we should paint on the streets in Downtown Springfield throughout today's show!
