Victims of Hurricane Katrina brace for Hurricane Gustav, fearing the worst again, we feature a special report from Malik Rahim of Common Ground, from New Orleans; also, former Angola prisoner Robert King talks about the treatment of prisoners during major storms; In honor of the Chicano moratorium, we remember the life and times of Ruben Salazar, one of the most significant Latino journalists of the 20th century, who was assassinated by Sheriff Deputies 40 years ago; and Flashpoints prepares to take the show on the road to Minneapolis, in the heart of Indian country, as the Republicans start their convention and nominate a pro-life, pro-war woman vice-President.
