On Thursday’s show: Harris County Attorney Christian Menefee discusses several issues facing the county, including the questioning of the county’s new guaranteed income pilot program and legal action against a concrete batch plant located near Kashmere Gardens.

Also this hour: We have a conversation about crime prevention and perceptions of crime in the city. We discuss what the crime situation really is and why it may not match the public's impression. We also talk about efforts to improve policing in Houston.

Then, journalist Justice Malala reflects on the tumultuous last days of apartheid in South Africa and an assassin’s attempt to spark a full-blown racial civil war. It’s the subject of his book, The Plot to Save South Africa, which he’ll discuss on this week’s edition of I See U with Eddie Robinson.

And we go inside the big business of quinceañeras.
