With sex offenders accused of two recent high-profile murders in the state, the city of Miami Beach, Fla., is considering a law that would effectively run register offenders out of town. The city's mayor — and the opposition — talk about balancing public safety and civil liberties.

Guests:

David Dermer, mayor of Miami Beach, Fla. Pushing law that would effectively force sex offenders out of the city

Fred Berlin, founder of John Hopkins Sexual Disorder Clinic; associate professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University Medical College
