Thursday on Lake Effect: Wisconsin Open Carry Laws, Health-Base Clemency, Parachute Journalism
Thursday on Lake Effect:
We learn how Wisconsin’s open carry law creates complications for both protesters and law enforcement. Then, we look at the fight for health-based clemency for Wisconsin prisoners, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Plus, we consider the practice of parachute journalism — where out-of-town journalists attempt to tell local stories.
