The Justice Minister Andrew Little has spoken out against Australia's inhumane deportation laws. He was referring to sending New Zealand-born criminals back here, even if they've spent most of their lives in Australia.In an interview with the ABC he said detaining people for a length of time without charging them would not be tolerated in any democratic country. The President of the United States of America says he mis-spoke in a press conference with his Russian counterpart. In the joint interview with Vladimir Putin he said he didn't "see any reason why" Russia would have interfered in the 2016 US election. His bad. Now he says he meant to say wouldn't. Doh! Our US political correspondent Karen Kasler tells us just how this is playing out with the American people. The Police union is concerned a vacuum is being created because of the number of senior officers leaving the force. There are concerns there's not enough experience to mentor new recruits. The President of the Police Association Chris Cahill talks about why the officers are leaving and why its been a issue for decades.
