Normal Police Detective Nicole Bruno says consent education should focus on what sexual assault is rather than what it is not. She says excuses she has heard include 'we were flirting at the bar before hand.' She says the idea it turned into sexual assault the moment there was no consent seems hard to get through to come people. Mary Cullen reports it's also often difficult to change minds on the definition of consent. Plus, Bloomington City Manager Tim Gleason has hired a new Deputy City Manager, a diverse hire, and one he's worked with before. Eric Stock talks about that and other issues facing the city. And the Mayor of Normal stops by to talk about the Trail East Project and other developments.
