This week, we discuss a police operation in the South End "sweeping away" people dealing with substance use disorders and homelessness.

Also, we discuss the aftermath of this week's mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas, where at least 31 people were killed.

Plus, we check in on the ongoing scandal at the RMV, after Attorney General Maura Healey said the Baker administration should bear responsibility. And, a new study from Mass DOT that finds traffic in Mass. is at a tipping point.
