Are police and lawmakers doing enough to stop domestic violence? We'll hear from Patricia Prickett, a domestic violence prevention advocate who has accompanied police on over a thousand domestic violence calls. We'll also hear from journalist Sara Catania, who writes about domestic violence in the July/August issue of Mother Jones. Plus, investigative journalist Peter Byrne exposes the military's new tactics for spying on American civilians. He reveals that under Bush, the Pentagon can "use giant, secret databases of linked networks to gather a picture of the activities of millions of Americans, mapping all their associations." Angie also talks with the Constitution Project's Joseph N. Onek, who warns that Byrne's revelations may be only the tip of the iceberg.
