This week, we'll be joined by Amanda Petteruti of the Justice Policy Institute to help put the Baltimore unrest into context. Petteruti co-authored a report titled, "The Right Investment? Corrections Spending in Baltimore City."

Then we'll speak about the way the media has covered the killing of Freddie Gray -- and the protests that ensued -- with historian and writer Jacqui Shine.

Finally, we'll talk to MSNBC's Irin Carmon about the often comical arguments against marriage equality included in various 'friend of the court' briefs submitted prior to this week's oral arguments at the Supreme Court.
