On today's edition of the Midday News Wrap, we begin with Baltimore Brew founding editor and publisher, Fern ShenThis week, the Brew published a series documenting the ballooning problem of overtime abuse in the Baltimore police department.

Then, Luke Broadwater of the Baltimore Sun and investigative reporter Alec MacGillis of ProPublica  join Tom to review some of the week’s top local and national stories, from Police Commissioner-designate Darryl De Sousa’s confirmation hearing in the City Council, and the Governor and the Mayor of Baltimore taking a victory lap following hundreds of warrant arrests, to the national debate over gun regulation that’s been re-ignited by last week’s deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school.
