Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy joins Eight Forty-Eight to discuss the recent rise in police-involved shootings. Then, Residents’ Journal publisher Ethan Michaeli gives an update on the Chicago Housing Authority. WBEZ's Michael Puente reports on tax collection in Gary, Indiana, which has an abysmal track record on collections, despite the fact that the city’s budget is in tatters and its services crumble in front of taxpayers’ eyes. And Changing Gears' Niala Boodhoo continues the series' road trip through company towns with a visit to Decatur, Illinois, the unofficial soybean capitol of the world and home to food production kingpin Archer Daniels Midland.
