Up Front – Stop and Frisk, The Self Made Myth, State Parks in Crisis

Is Stop and Frisk coming to San Francisco? Mayor Ed Lee floated the idea last month, but everyone from his police chief to the civil rights group he used to work at is against it. The city’s Board of Supervisors is about to vote on a measure urging city officials not to implement it — we’ll have full coverage at the top of the show.
Plus: How easy is it to pull yourself up by your bootstraps in America? Sonali Kolhatkar interviews the author of The Self-Made Myth.
And we look at the crisis that threatens to close state parks across California — and whether stop-gap solutions have opened the path to privatization.
