Controversy surrounding the August 9 shooting death of unarmed Missouri teen Michael Brown has the nation reeling. What really happened the day he was shot to death by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson?

Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph joins Jane and her Lion's Den panel to debate that very question. Ralph says not all police are out to shoot African American men, but that it does happen more often than people think. She also says black and brown men in America need to be given a manual on how to approach police.

Dining with your dog may soon be legal in CA

Dining with your dog may soon be legal in CA

A huge victory for dogs and their human companions.  The anti-dog rules that outlaw pups from restaurants' outdoor seating areas in California are about to be overturned.  That means dogs won't be stranded, won't be tied up outside on the street while their owners eat anymore.  The California House and Senate have just approved a bill that will allow restaurants to decide if they want to allow dogs inside of their fenced-in outdoor seating areas.  California Governor Jerry Brown tells us he's about to sign this bill into law.  And California is just the start.   We're taking this movement from coast to coast!

Jane speaks to the woman who led the campaign for this law, Judie Mancuso, President of Social Compassion in Legislation.
