This edition: Summer of the GunTweet
Original tape date: September 17, 2012.
First aired: September 26, 2012.
On this edition of Independent Sources, we examine why gun violence is up in New York City despite the police department's claims that the city is the safest it's been in years. We talk to two filmmakers about their new documentary that highlights the history of Latin American immigration to the United States. Then, we learn about a program that's helping young women deal with real-life problems through drama.
