Charged with lying under oath in a text message sex scandal, Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick turned himself in to authorities, but he maintains he will not resign.

Farai Chideya talks with M.L. Elrick, a reporter for the Detroit Free Press about details in the case.

And for more on what Kilpatrick's indictment means for Detroit, we hear from Betram Marks, general legal counsel for the Council of Baptist Pastors for Detroit and Vicinity.
