Radio Boston, "It would seem that there were multiple red flags along the way. And yet a man with a record of domestic violence was arrested, released and then allegedly went on to murder. What are the lessons here?"

Radio Boston, "As the race to become Boston’s next mayor heats up, big money is getting involved. Or at least,trying to get involved. The national education nonprofit Stand For Children wanted to throw five hundred thousand dollars behind City Councilor and Mayoral candidate John Connolly, to fund ads, phone-banking, and door-knocking. But today, Connolly refused the money, saying he doesn’t want such outside groups to warp the debate."

Radio Boston, "More than 40,000 people have been identified with cases connected to former state drug chemist Annie Dookhan, who is charged with allegedly tampering with drug evidence. Boston defense attorney David Meier was appointed by Gov. Deval Patrick to identify the cases affected by Dookhan almost a year ago. Meier said his team analyzed nearly 3.5 million documents to come up with their final number."

This segment aired on August 23, 2013.
