This week on Episode 39 of Mitchell Talks the News 9 Sessions, Aaron Brilbeck talks with Pottawatomie and Lincoln County District Attorney Allan Grubb and Sen. Ron Sharp (R-Shawnee) about making hate crimes a felony instead of a misdemeanor in Oklahoma.

This month, two white men were charged with beating two black men near a Shawnee bar. The attackers could be heard shouting racial slurs in a security video of the incident.
