Tuesday, August 20th, 2019 Five years after Eric Garner's death - the police officer who placed him in a choke hold has been fired. Garner's family wants more. But the officer is planning to fight back as well. What does that action look like? We've seen the fight for democracy in Hong Kong, play out on the city's streets. Now the world's biggest social media companies say it's also unfolding online. They describe a state-backed Chinese misinformation campaign. What message is Beijing sending? And we've got new data on gun control. Regardless of political affiliation, regardless of whether you own a gun or not, we found that the majority of Americans want 'red flag' laws. What impact would that legislation have?
