This Week On The Fallon Forum: ISU Police Chase, Water, Climate Change, SNAP

fallon forumDear Friends,

The police chase and shooting death on the Iowa State University campus last week has been the subject of much conversation, not just in Iowa but across the country. Was the use of deadly force by the police officer justified? What was going on in the driver’s mind as he was tearing around campus? At what point does one’s vehicle become a deadly weapon?

Monday, attorney Joseph Glazebrook and Dr. Charles Goldman join me to analyze the tragic event at ISU last week. We also discuss the Greece v. Galloway case before the U.S. Supreme Court, addressing prayer at city council meetings.

Tuesday, local farmer Mark Peterson joins us to discuss water quality, and Suman Hoque with HoQ Restaurant talks about the growth in the local foods movement. We may also weigh-in on the debate over SNAP, a.k.a., food stamps.

Wednesday, we talk with Jon Neiderbach, who is throwing his hat into the race for State Auditor on the Democratic ticket. We also discuss climate change in light of the tragic typhoon which struck the Philippines last week.

Thursday, we talk with Joe Henry, candidate for Des Moines City Council in the upcoming special election. We also talk with Joe about the efforts of LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) and other organizations to confront voter suppression, both here in Iowa and most egregiously in Texas.

Join us live, Monday-Thursday, from 6:00-6:30 pm on the Fallon Forum website. Call-in at (855) 244-0077 and add your voice to the dialogue. Video and audio-only podcasts available after the program. The Fallon Forum also can be heard on KHOI 89.1 (Ames) Wednesdays at 5:00 pm and KPVL 89.1 (Postville) Wednesdays at 7:00 pm. Thanks!

Ed
