09/21/15: Florida's Death Penalty; 'America After Charleston'; Ken Babby; Cole Pepper

The  homicide case of Jacksonville's Shelby Farah has sparked a conversation about Florida's death penalty. We discuss the many issues surrounding capital punishment with Julie Delegal, who has been covering Farah's case for Folio Weekly, and Marc Hyden, National Coordinator with Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty.

Monday night, PBS will broadcast "America After Charleston," a one-hour town hall meeting that aims to explore the many issues propelled into public discourse after a white gunman shot and killed nine African-American parishioners in Charleston’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in June 2015. We examine these issues with community activist Chevara Orrin and Ron Davis, father of Jordan Davis and head of the Jordan Davis Foundation.

New Jacksonville Suns owner Ken Babby joins us to talk about his plans for the team.

And regular contributor Cole Pepper drops by with this week's sports news, including a look at the Jacksonville Jaguars' win against the Miami Dolphins.
