Tuesday's panel discusses the use of handcuffs in Milwaukee schools; a rise in the infant mortality rate in the American South; a study calling lethal-injection drugs lethal "cruel;" and the $9 million awarded to a black man who suffered permanent brain damage at the hands of four white attackers.

Farai Chideya is joined by Bob Meadows, writer for People Magazine; Michael Meyers, Executive Director of the New York Civil Rights Coalition; and, Chicago Sun-Times columnist, Laura Washington.
