With apologies to LL Cool J and this week's feature, the Totescast delves into our cover story on Austin police policies (or the lack thereof) when dealing with deaf citizens – and how they often make difficult situations much worse.

Then it's onto controversy brewing east of I-35, as permanent supportive housing plans have some Eastside neighbors and property owners riled. This and much more; as always, Jordan Smith and Wells Dunbar are beatin' down your block.
