  Former NAACP President Ben Jealous today put out a six-point plan to improve police-community relations in Baltimore. Luke Broadwater of the Baltimore Sun tells us more. We’ll also hear from two protesters who were arrested for occupying City Hall this week -- Tre Murphy of Baltimore BLOC and the Baltimore Algebra Project and Makayla Gilliam-Price of City BLOC. Plus, news headlines from Jonathan Munshaw of the Baltimore Business Journal, and Lawrence Brown, assistant professor at Morgan State University, provides some historical perspective on why zoning is a public health issue. And this weekend is the Baltimore Running Festival. We speak to Lee DiPietro, who ran the Baltimore marathon 8 times and came in second twice. She tells us how her love of running gave her strength during difficult times.
