Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Is controlling all things as an incredible amount of high-tech power in there. No alleged court of law that doesn't we're his. And the thing is you know, where to kick the computers if they go down. Well, I'm gonna start with mine. First and foremost is it morning. I'm not kidding is doing the Sharpton resist we much whole it's resisting more more. So than Star Wars resistance. Keystroke errors something. No. That's the name of my new band keystroke error. Yeah. We specialize in tech goals. Let's get to know. We were we're gonna have the latest on creative ways to fight the homeless challenges talking about the the more militant members of the urban outdoorsmen and women community. Because it really the people really want to change our programs. We have many great programs say the county throughout California, that's kind of vicious cycle. Because it's also that an attraction people say move out there from buffalo or whatever. But there are some creative things being tried. And we'll get into that coming up just a little bit star. Parker will join us after ten thirty. And then tenant Colonel retired. But never really buzz. Patterson carry the nuclear codes for Bill Clinton with some thoughts on a lot of things. You're the news at the top of the hour that Trump says he's not going to be back to separating families. Like Obama did. Which is a good point. We have that. Here's the president right here. Saying that it goes. Oh, okay. We won't go until later this gym. I thought it was a snippet talking about that last night on K was I think with with the the fact that you gotta judge Obama appointed judge came down with the ruling yesterday from on high northern California that that doesn't help. This is the block. Of the stay in Mexico policy. That's been working, and especially working kind of being tested here. That's aniseed wrote that the port of entry. Yeah. On air memo. Mark it's four and a half minutes long. It's juicy. Good stuff. Okay. We'll we'll have second segment we can we can dissect. But animal if you like archaic tell you about the dissected frog flew out of a window. Once eighth grade was Joe Graham in the pilots know early era dynamic test. It was fine. I mean, the frog already cease to be, but then we just said, hey, what happens if you throw it out of the third floor and c lands on some girls downstairs. Detail that another time in a slow news day, which we never have any more. So this northern California judge appointed by Obama decide yesterday. Starting friday. His Richard Seaborg cyborg seaward found out that he said dad, there's eleven asylum seekers and they come from Central America. And so, well, let's just change it Friday now that may get blocked, and they may take it to the supreme court they being the Trump administration. But here's an Obama judge showing why judges matter, and I'll tell you what Obama did a really good job getting lower court judges in there. This is an US district court Trump's doing pretty well, Trump's they had more than seventy judicial appointments. So that that if that stands, and they changed the stay in Mexico while you work at your stuff policy. And then suddenly it's like no come on in here. We'll see court and two or three or four or five years that's going to dramatically change things locally or she watched that closely, and we will Bill wells, the fine mayor of alcohol joins us here on the Newsline AM seven sixty talking breaking news. We've talked a lot about the homeless challenges that aren't just in Oklahoma thing. It's a San Diego deal. It's a California thing the state has a third of the homeless in the United States in our state. So that that doesn't happen by accident. I Bill heavy back, Mr.. Good. So I'm noticing that just around the zone that a lot of the problems have been diminished, but they're still certain much five percent six eight whatever it is. They're not wanting to get into the programs, and this is kind of similar anywhere in San Diego throughout the throughout the county, the people who are on the streets. I would say probably majority have some other issues, maybe there's drug or mental problems or whatever they just don't want to be in the program and some of them have gotten even more in your face. So that's a problem. That's a problem when the thirties go in and say, okay, you gotta move because that's temporary. Right. So so give us nap shot of that and Elkins out with these signs around now for several months saying don't give to panhandlers instead, go to this website. So so what's the latest? And then talk about these new these new ideas, you're working. You're absolutely right. They're always people don't wanna get help. Even if we offer help. So we kind of developed a two product program. One is lots of opportunity get out the street and get help, and I can say about those programs second, and then the other part of that, of course, is watts of force -ment. So, you know, I think most of the cities Los Angeles San Francisco Seattle there in the middle of committing suicide by homes right now. And we're just going to participate, man. So we don't let people sleep the streets. We we don't let people pitched Hance and it happens. Sometimes I saw some yesterday. So there's a kind of a young couple likes to be over there on on main street, and they I mean, they had a campground going there by bus stop start that. But we instead went let you stay there grow. We go ahead and dismantle those those tents, and we don't allow that people sleep in the park called either. So. The way we can kind of get around that is that we have to provide a lot of treatment programs. So we have a program called the way back home. I love this program. It's partnership Salvation Army and its reunited forty six homeless people with their families mostly outside of the region. So people that come here from Kentucky or some other states. We if they wanna get back with their family. We work with them to get back talked to the family get a ticket back home that that we do that for forty six people, then we also have a housing navigator program, which is just hired somebody to help people access the different programs there around to the county. So people that want to get into calm, sometimes they don't have the wherewithal to make it happen. We help to do that. And so then okay. And the last thing that we were doing probably our most innovative thing is a public public private partnership with the east county transitional living center, and we've got dozens and dozens of people to see it's a hotel, right? But I bought and we work with you know, they serve five hundred thousand a year there, and the average cost of those seventeen cents which I don't think any government to do and that's been pretty effective program. It's not perfect nothing. Really really Bill. Wells, the mayor of Oklahoma with us. But the key is okay. What are the results look like? And I gotta believe that. There's there's never a point in any community where the homeless issue gets down to resign. Okay. It's also that now we have no problem. This is not going to be that way. There's always going to percentage, right? It's a problem that that we deal with you know, I'd I'd be with a lot of the around the region. That's. Few exceptions like powei doesn't have they probably that. But most of the city's their their major problem is how to deal with the homeless issue, and how to maintain the rights of the people that live in the city and give them a good safe place to live and still not break the law in in dealing with the homeless, you don't wanna come down too, heavy handed. You wanna be compassionate the same time you want to protect people. Where do you get additional help our business? I would assume businesses are helping on this and look at just the community because frankly in any community, not just go around San Diego, people are saying I can't deal with this or you're going into particular retailers. Stablishment? You gotta step over people and Dukla students, of course, make plays trip over those on the way in, but but it's been much more in your face. I would think businesses are eager to step up. No, many are. And they do creative things. But but it's frustrating for business. Certainly getting more involved and they're slowly coming to the realization that there's not a police department anywhere that could have enough officers on the street to deal with all the homeless, folks. So a lot of businesses come to the conclusion that they have to spend more money on security cameras and sensing, and and people came to that reluctantly, obviously, nobody wants to spend money. They were hoping the problem will go away. But. It seems likely that the problem go away since legislatures in Sacramento seem so hell bent on making easy to be homeless to try to protect all right? And at the same time, then there are plenty of attorneys to take cases, and you get class action suit more creative members of the urban outdoorsman community who lawyer up. I mean, this kind of thing happens. There's another thing. This isn't just an deal that I've seen this you mentioned security guards over going Bank business Bank. They're close to the trolley, you know, kind of over in that area pass Parkway plaza. And there are noticed there's a new uniform private security presence just in little strip mall place for that is and I've talked to people in in the businesses in in there at the Bank. They've talked about how after fifty seven. That there's a surge a regular surge that had done it's kind of close to the trolley. I mean, that's a fact, and they just kind of surged through you know, when there's some release going on. And that may be a surprise once trolleys extended up to UCSD TC people go, well, the good things also unintended consequences. So what about that? Absolutely. You know, realignment assault are homeless population grow by about ten percent. And you know, it's not just folks that that are down there. I think three that's the most frustrating part is there are a lot of people that believe that the majority of people that are homeless are just having financial problems. But what we're seeing you talk to the police you talk to the emergency rooms most of these people are involved with drug and alcohol abuse and more and more people are getting out of jail because we don't want to think that those crimes are important. And they're changing the whole feel of the streets because it's not just people have hard time as we now now intermixed with fairly hardened criminals who are continuing their criminal criminal enterprises. And they're doing it from the base of being homeless, which is much more dangerous for the people city. How much of a legal challenges is additional focus creating for the city of or maybe maybe not so much these these these shelter situations, but just staying on the cleanup detail and moving minicamps before they become maxi camps in along the streets and so forth whites ate. I if it's a massive undertaking recently, we wanted to go into sewer system to find out how much junk was down the sewers because been dry for one time like, you know, so people living down there, and we brought up I think one hundred twenty tonnes of the Bree out of the system that we have the throw away. So that's a budget BUSTER, how do you budget for that? Where's that? It's part of the general fine. You know, we've we certainly have set money aside for it's just like I said, it's just constantly business for the city after the business and some fortunate we nobody wants to have to deal with this. But it you can't ignore because it certainly won't go away or keep an eye on it. And there's a lot of progress positive progress being made at other cities may want to take a look at that. Because does seem that there are some differences happening and maybe getting a handle on the homeless issue just a little bit more against great programs around the county as but that's the dilemma great programs also attract people from elsewhere saying, hey, let's go to California, right? They Mr Mayor pleasures..
