We look at the news affecting Greater Cincinnati and the Tri-state

Attorney Al Gerhardstein calls the lawsuit against an African-American police lieutenant by two white officers "the most outrageous lawsuit I have ever seen." Hamilton County commissioners raise the sales tax. Now a petition effort is underway to force the measure to a vote. A controversial "Stand Your Ground" bill is expected to go to a vote next week.
