Lily Burk case on WWLA

This evening's Which Way, L.A.? on KCRW sets up the discussion this way: "The murder of 17-year-old Lily Burk has received saturation coverage. Does a brutal crime contain any lessons about the failure of treatment programs or the risk of early parole?" Warren Olney's guests are Paul Weber, president of the Los Angeles Police Protective League,
Celeste Fremon of WitnessLA.com and Laurie Levenson, law professor at Loyola. The topic airs just before 7:30 p.m.
