Cincinnati Protests

Steve Hirschberg of member station WVXU reports on the state of emergency declared by Cincinnati Mayor Charles Luken today. It's the fourth day of protests and vandalism sparked by the shooting of an unarmed black man by a white police officer last weekend. The mayor has also asked police to enforce an 8:00 p.m. curfew and is considering calling in the Ohio National Guard.
