Viral Justice: Was mom on drugs?

Police say a video was posted to Facebook showing a mom apparently nodding out on a Philadelphia bus while her little daughter tries to wake her up.  At points the daughter holds her mother’s head up so she doesn’t fall over.  People who saw the video say the mom appeared to be on drugs.

The video went viral and sparked a police investigation. Now, that little girl had been taken away from her mother.

The mom accused of trying to kill herself and her three young kids by driving into the ocean was given a $1.2 Million bond.  And it turns out, she has killed before. Seven years ago, Ebony Wilkerson drove her vehicle into another car sending it spinning into a concrete barrier and injuring a woman who later died from her wounds. And she only served community service.  

Jane Velez-Mitchell talks about that case, and analyzes Wilkerson’s court appearance with her panel of experts.

Idaho becomes 6th state to pass Ag-Gag law

Idaho is now the sixth state to pass an Ag-Gag law that criminalizes the filming of undercover video exposing cruelty on factory farms.   Two years ago, Mercy for Animals went undercover to Bettencourt Dairies, the largest dairy operation in Idaho, and found horrific abuse.

The farm’s owner told CNN “We are all devastated by it. We are family owned and we love our cattle. It’s something we don’t allow.”  As a result of that undercover investigation, five workers were fired and three of them were charged with cruelty to animals.

'Upskirting' legal in Massachusetts? Not anymore!

Massachusetts legislators enacted a bill on Friday that makes ​photos or videos secretly taken under a person’s clothing -- or "upskirting" -- illegal.

The new bill comes days after a judge ruled that upskirting was not illegal based on the wording of existing state law, which the court determined didn't apply to the victims of upskirting because they weren't nude or partially nude.
