Valerie Ervin steps into Maryland's Gubernatorial race a week after the sudden passing of her running mate Kevin Kamenetz. Councilmember Vincent Gray joins us to talk about his proposal for a two-dollar hike in D.C..
Guest Host: Jonathan Capehart
The release of John Hinckley Jr. ends the stay of one of D.C.’s most infamous mental health patients from St. Elizabeths Hospital. With support from his clinicians — yet strict court-ordered restrictions on his movements — the would-be presidential assassin will now make his home 150 miles away in Williamsburg, Va., a town whose residents say they fear his permanent return. But as Hinckley makes his transition from D.C, he also leaves behind a personal and legal legacy for our region and beyond. We examine how Hinckley changed during his three decades at St. Elizabeths and ask how his case impacted mental-health treatment and criminal law.
