Part 1: Is the Stingray mobile tracking device unethical?

It's the controversial device that helps the Oakland County Sheriff's Department track down the bad guys. The Stingray disguises itself as a cell phone tower and helps pinpoint the fugitive's location. But some are concerned about what kind of information the device collects -- especially since the Sheriff's Department has been unwilling to provide information about what the device does. Legitimate police tool? Or does it cross the line of privacy?

On the panel:

Cecil Ibegbu, Counter terrorism expert on Boko Haram and Nigerian security
Tom McMillin, Rochester Hills republican running for congress in 8th District
Bobby McKenzie, Counter terrorism expert running for the Congressional seat in the 11th District
Joclyn Benson, Dean of Wayne State University law school

In a post game press conference yesterday, Detroit Tigers Manager Brad Ausmus joked, "I beat my wife” in a response to a question about how he handles losses when he gets home. Ausmus apologized immediately after making the comment and apologized again before today’s game. Some say an apology isn't enough, and others say this shouldn't even be a story.

On the panel:

Drew Sharp, Detroit Free Press columnist
Amy Youngquist, CEO of First Step, an organization that helps victims of Domestic Violence
Matthew Mowery, The Oakland Press beat writer for the Tigers who captured video of Ausmus' remarks
