4:05pm ET - Yesterday, a grand jury decided not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Mike Brown.  After the announcement came protests, a flood of police activity, and appeals for peace in Ferguson and around the nation.  Today, we discuss the latest on the ruling and its aftermath.  Writer and Knobler Fellow Mychal Denzel Smith has written extensively about the case for The Nation.  He joins us to talk about the issues and his visit to Ferguson.

4:35pm ET -  Seven years ago, Boston instituted a 35-foot “buffer zone” around abortion clinics.  The barrier protected abortion clinic patients and employees from harassment and threats until the Supreme Court overturned the law because it violated freedom of speech.  With the elimination of the buffer zone, protesters can now approach patients right up to the clinic doors.  Calling themselves “counselors,” they try to talk women out of getting abortions, often through propaganda and intimidation.  Senior political writer for Cosmopolitan.com Jill Filipovic visited Boston to see how things have changed.  She joins us today to talk about the law's impact on patients and protesters.

3:35pm ET -  High school teacher Emily Herx first started fertility treatments with the blessing of her principal.  Two weeks later, the monsignor called her “a grave immoral sinner,” and she was fired.  Herx filed a discrimination lawsuit, but the church argues that she violated church standards.  Then, the church went a step further to say that religious liberty rights protect the school from even appearing before the court.

Reporter Molly Redden covered the case for Mother Jones.  She joins us today to explore the conflict between individual rights and religious exemptions.

3:35pm ET - Michigan nurses April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse could soon become the couple that brings same-sex marriage to the Supreme Court.  After a 6th circuit court upheld a ban on gay marriage earlier this month, they are poised to bring their case all the way up to the Supreme Court meaning that this case could make gay marriage legal nationwide once and for all.  Their lawyer attorney Dana Nessel joins us today to talk about the future of the case and what might happen next at the Supreme Court.

5:05pm ET - The US military traditionally operates by land, sea, air and space.  In recent years, cyberspace has emerged as the latest war frontier.  Author Shane Harris has written extensively about security issues for Foreign Policy Magazine and his book The Watchers: The Rise of America’s Surveillance State.  His new book @War: The Rise of theMilitary-Internet Complex investigates the cyber security.  He interviewed dozens of military, intelligence and private sector insiders to write about the US’s unique strategies and challenges.  He joins us today to illuminate the dark corners of cyberspace.
