LDS Church fires back over abuse story, Utah city coughs up police shooting records

(West Jordan Police Department) West Jordan officers respond to Michael Glad stealing one of their police trucks on May 28, 2018. Two officers fired on Glad, who later died.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says there were “egregious errors” in a recent Associated Press report on child sex abuse. The federal government says it is “starting the process” to significantly reduce water use in the Colorado River Basin. A judge grants access to police shooting records that West Jordan sought to keep secret. And state officials tell lawmakers that the Utah Lake dredging project is not legal.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Peggy Fletcher Stack, Zak Podmore and Paighten Harkins, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke, join a guest host, Utah Public Radio’s Tom Williams, to talk about the week’s top stories.
