There are several things on the law enforcement front up for discussion this morning. Right at the top of the show, we'll talk with the "Ghetto Tree" guy, Earl Reese, about why police surrounded his house Sunday evening. We'll also get an update on his efforts to clean up his neighborhood.
We'll cover the latest Springfield Police Department proposals from Alderman Kris Theilen that could increase the age restrictions of new police officers from 35 (with no military experience) to 45.
We'll also get into police around the country keeping a zipped lip when it comes to utilizing so-called "Stingray" technology to intercept cell phone communications. Does Springfield's Police Department have that technology? We'll reveal that answer today during Bishop On Air.
Lastly on the law enforcement front we'll talk about justifiable homicide, and in particular how the Federal Bureau of Investigations has a flawless record when it comes to homicides they've committed being labeled justified.
The Second Amendment is under constant assault. Be it through indoctrination of the youth to be, as Attorney General Eric Holder said back in the 90s, brainwashed into thinking about guns in a vastly different manner to workbooks being crafted to distort the true intention of the amendment. Then there's Connecticut where it was rightfully predicted that registration is leading to confiscation. We'll cover the latest gun-rights news with Bishop On Air!
NAPA know how
Springfield Budget Director Bill McCarty will join the show to talk more about the possible deal with NAPA Auto Parts. It's been quite contentious the past few weeks as Springfield aldermen moved to pass, then hold, then pass and then hold again an ordinance that would give NAPA a three year deal worth up to $3.75 million to provide auto parts for the city's garage consolidation efforts. What are the latest developments? We'll find out today just after 11am.
News on the March
Was Matt Drudge wrong when he said he's already paid a penalty for not having Obamacare? Why in the world are Iranians building a replica of a US aircraft carrier? What's former President Jimmy Carter's obsession with snail mail all about? These are just some of the issues we'll delve into with News on the March.
