This week, we're joined by Michael White, a professor of criminology at Arizona State University, to discus a recent study he co-authored that looked at how Tasers impact the cognitive functions of those who are zapped. 


Then we talk primary politics with Mike Tomasky of The Daily Beast, who's on the ground in Nevada.

Finally, we go back to our archives for a discussion with Chuck Wexler, the executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum, about how we're training police to be hyper-aggressive "warriors."
