In a heated 12-hour debate on Aug. 6, Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, opposes Gov. Mike Parson's tough-on-crime package of legislation intended to reduce violence throughout the state.

During the special legislative session this week, Missouri Gov. Mike Parson called for lawmakers to allow the state's attorney general to intervene in local homicide cases.

On Wednesday's St. Louis on the Air, St. Louis Public Radio reporter Rachel Lippmann discussed the governor’s attempts to solve St. Louis’ crime problem. She also talked about the work of the federal agents who have been handling homicide cases in St. Louis for a few years and how Operation LeGend fits into that effort.
