Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt joins the show to discuss the efforts from his office concerning crime and safety. Carjacking crimes are on the rise and currently, there is no uniform way to charge the offenders. AG Schmitt believes we need mandatory penalties that fit the crime.

AG Schmitt also notes St. Louis needs more police officers. Schmitt suggests allowing officers to live where they want to live could aid recruiting.
