We’ll also take a look at the role of school resource officers and law enforcement inside the classroom in the wake of a viral video that led to the firing of a police officer in South Carolina.

At this moment we are in-between three of the most definitive battlegrounds  in the 2016 presidential campaign: Nevada, South Carolina, and Super Tuesday.
