In this episode of Observer Radio, Emily DePrang joins us to discuss when police shootings in Houston are deemed unlawful. The short version: They’re not.

Texas Public Radio’s David Martin Davies calls in to discuss the death of Julian Castro’s “Modern Streetcar” project and what it portends for San Antonio’s future without its well-known mayor.
