LAPD put on helmets, and take a stance around an immigration march.

The federal oversight of L.A.'s police department has finally come to an end. Known as the consent decree, it was first imposed in 2001, after the LAPD came under fire for a corruption scandal. 

A federal judge ended that oversight on Wednesday, putting the LAPD back in charge of its own affairs. For more on this, reporter Joel Rubin of the LA Times joins the show to explain.
