Alex talks with "Freeway" Ricky Ross, who was sentenced to life for dealing cocaine. His sentence was reduced after a series of articles by journalist Gary Webb in the San Jose Mercury News brought to light a connection between one of Ross's cocaine sources and the CIA as part of the Iran-Contra scandal. Ross was featured in Kevin Booth's documentary American Drug War: The Last White Hope. Alex also talks with actress, comedian, writer, television producer and director Roseanne Barr. She has said Wall Street bankers should be sent to re-education camps and if that does not work they should be beheaded. Alex also continues his coverage of the Occupy Wall Street protests that have fanned out over the country and spread to Europe. He also covers other breaking news and takes your calls.
