D.C. Public Schools are in the spotlight once again after another scandal leads to the Chancellor's resignation. No women represent Maryland in Congress, but five have been chosen as candidates for Lt. Governor. And details emerge about what Prince George's County offered and why it wasn't chosen by Amazon to host their new headquarters.
In 2008, two Metropolitan Police Department officers responded to a noise complaint for a house party in D.C. When they arrived, contradictory accounts among partygoers who said that a woman named “Peaches” invited them led the officers to arrest 21 attendees for unlawful entry. While the charges were ultimately dropped, 16 of those arrested sued the District, sparking a decade-long court battle that ended last week with a Supreme Court ruling defending the police officers’ actions. Kojo discusses how this party wound up in the nation’s highest court and what the judges’ unanimous ruling says about policing in local neighborhoods.
