MSNBC host Chris Hayes' new book "A Colony in a Nation" argues that the U.S. is drifting towards a police state that venerates the law and obsesses over order at the risk of civil rights.

Coming up on today's show: 

  • Chris Hayes, host of "All In With Chris Hayes" on MSNBC, editor at large at The Nation, and the author of A Colony in a Nation ( W. W. Norton & Company, 2017), talks about the day’s news.
  • Lauren Evans, freelance writer and contributor at The Village Voice and Jezebel, discusses her story about New York City's cabaret law and the fight to end it.
  • The Baxley family turns out to carry a high risk of genetic disease. Gina Kolata, medical reporter for The New York Times and the author of Mercies in Disguise: A Story of Hope, a Family's Genetic Destiny, and the Science That Rescued Them (St. Martin's Press, 2017), tells their story as DNA testing offers the opportunity for individual members to find out for sure, and the possibility of preventing passing it on, at a steep price.
