Former Bollywood Star Stands Up To Domestic Violence

Jan 30, 2014

01/30/14 - Thursday's Topical Currents begins with a discussion of domestic violence . . . and firearms.  The US Supreme Court has heard arguments in a case where a Tennessee man, who pled guilty to a domestic violence misdemeanor, has been charged with arms possession.  This violates federal law.  He’s challenged the rule.  A decision is expected in June.  Our guests are: Dr. Laura Finley, Assistant Professor of Sociology & Criminology at Barry University; and Somy Ali, founder and president of No More Tears,  a not-for-profit organization that provides individualized assistance to human trafficking and domestic violence victims.  In the second half of the program, Linda Gassenheimer hosts her annual Super Bowl Bash program, with wine columnist Fred Tasker. That’s Topical Currents Thursday at 1pm.
