The guests are a city councilman and two retired librarians.

In the second half-hour: U-S police forces will soon be adding new types of high-technology “less-lethal” weapons, but these devices are likely to pose greater complications for officer accountability and civilian oversight; researcher Long Le explains some of the issues.

Loan Le is the founder and president of the Institute for Good Government and Inclusion.
