The Aleppo boy in the ambulance: Could a haunting photo mark a tipping point in what’s been called a forever war? Plus: The feds are phasing out private prisons. How did we get there?

And mental health behind the badge: Here’s how the stuff they don’t tell you at the academy can hurt – and what’s being done to help. Plus: It started with a game between New York and San Francisco. Now this weekend, Texas hosts the world series of gay softball. All that and much more, on today’s Texas Standard.
