STATEWIDE - We discuss the release of police body-cam footage showing the use of a stun gun on Milwaukee Bucks player Sterling Brown after police unnecessarily escalated an encounter over a parking violation.

We review a news report that Foxconn is already changing the production plans at its yet to be built Wisconsin factory, again calling into question the long term sustainability of an environmentally threatening project that will create far fewer jobs than progressive alternatives.

We review the terrible 5-4 Supreme Court decision that greatly restricts worker legal rights in the workplace. In yet more bleak economic news for Gov. Walker, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic reports that Minnesota had more total jobs than Wisconsin in 2017 for the first time in recent history and added more jobs each year for the last 10 years.

We also talk about state representative Leon Young’s sudden decision not to run for reelection, and the latest Dem Governor's race scuttlebutt.
