On this edition we debate the latest developments in Detroit's ongoing bankruptcy saga.  Joining us to talk about it is Ed McNeil, Special Assistant to the President of AFSMCE Council 25, Sgt. Matt Gnatek, Chairman of the Detroit Police and Fire Retirement System, and Sheila Cockrel, former Detroit City Council Member.  There's a new effort to sell the art at the DIA. Plus, the fireworks really get going when the Police and Fire Unions announce they're ready to take action if they aren't given a fair deal.  They say they have 500 members ready to retire, leaving the city short-handed when it comes to first responders.

Plus, are the state's gun laws encouraging vigilante justice? Benjamin Crump, the lawyer for Trayvon Martin's family thinks so.  He's in town to urge Michigan lawmakers to repeal the state's "Stand Your Ground" self defense law that says you have no duty to retreat in instances where you fear for your life, great bodily harm, or sexual assault.  Taking him on is Rick Ector of Rick's Firearms Academy of Detroit.  He's a CPL instructor and self defense expert who says "Stand Your Ground" saves lives.
