What does it take to remove a planned and wanted newborn baby from the hospital?  Two ingredients:  the mother must be a rape victim, and the State must have no paper trail.  Apparently, that is all it took for authorities to forcibly take Baby Braelon from his mother's arms shortly after birth.  On TLFR today, we will be interviewing the custodial grandmother of the mother of Baby Braelon and two witnesses to the events that took place when the baby was seized, Juda Myers and Terri LaPoint.  We will focus on the possible reasons for the seizure and what we can learn about the medical ethics violations involved that enabled this to happen.

We will also discuss the trial and conviction of Stanford student and rapist Brock Turner.  Why was his defense so laden with lies?  What is it about his case that has everyone upset, yet strangely not upset enough?
