Less than a week after launching a program to get desk officers on the streets, there has been a rash of shootings and murders in Detroit. This week on "Let It Rip," we talk to the city's former police chief Ike McKinnon.
Plus, all students in the Detroit Public Schools will get free meals this fall. It's all part of a federal program that will pay for the meals, even if they can afford them. Now, some are wondering if this program is a good idea.
In addition to McKinnon, other panelists joining Huel Perkins and Charlie Langton include Charlie LeDuff, community leader Yusef Shakur and conservative radio show host Wayne Bradley.
