American Journey: NYC Marathon

After the bombings at the Boston Marathon, backpacks are now banned at the New York City Marathon and family members waiting at the finish line will be screened. Those are just some of the increased security measures. Last year's race was canceled because of Superstorm Sandy, so this year's marathon takes on special meaning. Tom Foreman has one runner's American Journey.

Fmr. Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge says arming TSA officers is a bad idea

TSA officers are not armed, even though they are on the front lines of airport security. Today's shooting at LAX is the first time a TSA officer has been killed in the line of duty. It shows just how vulnerable they are while on the job. Airports have long been known to be soft targets. Anderson spoke with Tom Ridge who served as the nation's first Secretary of Homeland Security.

Anderson discussed the response to today's shooting with Tom Blank, a former TSA deputy administrator and HLN law enforcement analyst Mike Brooks.

A nine-year-old girl blew everyone away with her recent performance on "Holland's Got Talent." What's even more incredible, this little girl says taught herself to sing by watching YouTube tutorials. Daniel Coyle is the author of "The Talent Code," and joined the panel to talk about how much of talent is nature, and how much is nurture.

A recent Gallup poll shows support for the death penalty is at its lowest level since 1972. States like California have plenty of people on death row, but rarely carry out executions. Andrew Sullivan makes the case, "When you have someone locked up forever and can't hurt anyone, the death penalty becomes a form of vengence"
