The kidnapping death of a teenage girl as she made her way to a Cleveland charter school has sharpened community focus on the safety of children who must walk or use public transportation. We'll discuss the community response to Alianna DeFreeze's disappearance and death as well as measures already in place to watch out for the safety of students in Cleveland. Then, Ohio's Secretary of State turns his attention to non-citizens casting ballots.  We'll get the details from our Statehouse team.
