Both Sides of the Aisle

Both Sides of the Aisle – Episode 140 (7/7/16)


This week Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill joins Natalie and Dan for the first time on the show. They talk about why the D.A. is a partisan position. Also the recent incidents of filmed police brutality in Salt Lake City and Baton Rouge, LA, and the question of how can we make sure police body cameras are used correctly? In the second segment they discuss the Ken Garff group’s controversial billboard and whether it was anti-police or clever marketing, or both. Also the ACLU is suing the state for not providing sufficient indigent defense, as Utah is one of just two states that doesn’t fund indigent defense as required under the 6th Amendment, but instead leaves it to the counties. The ACLU says this leads to inconsistent and poor legal defense service for poor clients.  Also is there potential for mayhem at the upcoming political conventions in a few weeks? And, how we are seeing the effects of not accepting Medicaid expansion for the mentally ill in our community.
