Gotta Watch: Day Lennon died, Google Street View, Tupac

On the scene the day Lennon died - One of the police officers who arrested Mark David Chapman after the fatal shooting of the legendary John Lennon says Chapman apologized for ruining their night. "You just ruined your whole life," the officer replied. It's part of the story some of the New York City cops who were first on the scene that day 30 years ago are telling CNN. Watch the video for a preview of "Losing Lennon," a CNN documentary airing next week.

Hostility toward Google Street View - You could call it the French campaign against TMI. Folks in France and other European countries are complaining that Google's Street View is publishing private information like license plates and images of homes. CNN's Jim Bitterman reports on how Google is trying to make amends, and how the internet giant is handling uproar over another type of data collection you can't even see.

Channeling Tupac in Iraq - Rhymes about guns and violence are nothing new to rap music. But what if the backdrop is not urban America, but a war zone overseas? CNN's Arwa Damon meets the members of Iraq's first English-speaking rap group, Smashing Hits.

    Lennon murder was so senseless. I know that this is going to degenerate into a pro vs anti gun argument so here's my two cents. As the bumbersticker says, people kill people not guns.

    Every person I know who carries a gun thinks they have super human powers allowing them to exterminate human life at will without regard. The next time you have doubt pick up any newspaper in any city and read how many police officers kill civilians. However believe that people should be allowed to keep guns within their homes for protection.
