"And I think anybody who cares about the city once should ship raise your hand and be part of the solution in any way you possibly can Right now. Um, I wonder you. Apparently you reached out to the governor's office about your proposal for the National Guard deployment. How has that been received? How's it being received from other folks? You talked to city leaders and council members and stuff. Well, I can tell you right now My phone has been ringing all day in the office. My emails are filling up with people saying, you know, we have to try something. Um and but opportunity consensus across the board. It's nobody wants the national guards. In the city of Chicago. However, at the same time, they're saying we need to do something and if this is an approach that we need to do temporarily, then you know they'll support that and I think if you start seeing the results, I think the rest of the city will support it as well because it is unpopular. To think that you're going to have militarized the city of Chicago, and that's what we don't want to happen. But when you look at the fact that people are leaving the city jobs are closed. Businesses are closing every single day and we're losing revenue every single day. People aren't saying Don't go to Chicago nationally. That's going to hurt us from tourism standpoint. And so when you start looking at everything that is hitting us right now, we need to do something and we need to do it now, when I've covered this many, many times before, when the National Guard has been proposed, and I just want to kind of understand what it is you're proposing because in the past, they've said, Well, they're not really trained to deal with urban Violence and street violence that that that's not. That's not what national Guardsmen do. That's not. I mean, I know members of my family are in the national, are they They don't have that training. Um, So you're saying they would go downtown and sort of be the the officers standing on the street corners, But they wouldn't respond to crime or how How would that work? They would not respond to crime. But you know National Guardsmen they are trained for. Crowd control. Um and and if they're working along with if you have, say three National Guardsmen and two police officers, Okay, we're basically right now. You have five officers on every corner downtown. But if you take that and supplement that with the National Guardsmen, but you still have the police presence down there. If there's something they can help the police if they need to, you know, with crowd control, you know, because they can stop the looting. They, you know, secure perimeter and you know the second wave of looting. We saw fit to bring the national guards in the city of Chicago. But it was it was too late. It was too late because we tried to sound the alarm early to get them in early, But we was told We don't want the national guards in the city of Chicago. We don't want to defend. But then after the second round, eluding all of a sudden you call for the National Guard. We have to be proactive. They can work alongside with the police department. They can do crowd control. They can be that presence to deter crime and deter people from doing things that they don't We know that they're not supposed to be doing. And if they need to make an arrest, then the police are there to make that arrest because, yes, they are not trained for that, but they are trained for ground control and to secure parameters. Um, automobile. Can you hang out with me for just a few minutes? Do you have a few minutes more? Sure. Absolutely. I appreciate that. Because we have to pause for a moment. A lot more to ask you about and appreciate your time, sir. Certainly do. Hold on just one. Second. We got to 18 on WGN. More in a moment with Alderman Anthony Beale. W she.

"About how to control the violence. A couple of them had a press conference today. Maybe we'll get to some of that in the news today. But right now, Alderman Anthony Beale joins us. He's a representative Chicago's ninth Ward, and he's got a plan. It's a three pronged approach to what he thinks should be done to try to address this serious crime problem we have in the city. Part of it includes violence interrupters, along with the deployment of the Illinois National Guard. That's what's getting the most headlines. You know, Alderman Beale and I know you've been Talking about this, Um, quite publicly of the last few days. Thanks for joining me. You're on w g N. Thanks for having me. How you doing today? Okay, Automobile, you know, you know, people say, and they've already started saying on the text line. Oh, we've heard of this before, but it's never you know, it's always shot down. And why Why is it a good idea now? When Trump suggested? It was a terrible idea? We've heard different governors. Different mayors shoot it down in the past, and now you're bringing it up yet again. Why are you bringing it up now? Well, let me just say each time we bring it up we're dealing with, you know, total unrest in the city of Chicago, and the last time we brought it up is when we said we needed to bring the National Guard and before the looting took place. Last year, and you see what happened to the city? Um, not looted once, but the city was loaded twice. And so you know, we're dealing with a war in the city of Chicago right now, When you look at nationally 400 people were were shot. Um, nationally, 400 well over 100 were in Chicago. You know, so that tells you something. When you look at what happened in New York, they just declared a national emergency in New York because they had 25 people shot. I think 24 25 people shot And so in Chicago were just basically read gadget stating the same plan that we've had over the last few years, cancelled days off, Cancel vacations and have officers work 12 hour shift, and that philosophy is not working. And so yes, I know it's unpopular. Nobody wants the national guards to come in. But if you look at the approach that I'm trying to implement It's just right now. When you go downtown and you see four or five officers on every corner downtown, doing nothing but standing around well, we could have national guards. Men and women do that Bacon just go downtown and basically work the parameters of downtown with a skeleton crew of officers downtown and then put all those officers back in the community. All those offices that are standing standing around downtown have come out of the communities. That's why you see the communities programs right now because we don't have the manpower we need. In the community because their all downtown, so we just need officers to work along with the national guards, Men and women downtown that way, they don't have arrest powers, but you have officers with them if they need to make an arrest big downtown, but put those manpower's back in the community, and once you get them back in the community. We need to have about 125 250 million for violence. Interrupters right now. Crime was down in in in my area over 33%. Because I had violence Interrupters on the street working with Chicago create with Arne Duncan and his group and they're spending about $10 million a year in the community. Crime was down. Violent crime was down 33% in my community. All of a sudden the superintendent comes in and starts taking all our manpower doesn't talk to anybody just starts moving things around without consulting people, and he is totally dismantled. The plan that we had in place and now clam is running rampant out here, and we're trying to get a handle on it, and that's all we're trying to do. This is not a permanent fix. This is a temporary fix to stop the violence in our communities until we can start working on a long term solution. So you're saying that they took away some of the resources the police resources in your community when things were working, and then you saw a crime go up. Absolutely. They took all our resources. They're taking them across the city. Every police district. They're taking police out of every police district in the state of Chicago and redeploying them downtown on top of what downtown already had. And so you know, nobody's trying to, you know, make downtown less safe. I'm not saying that because we need to make sure we protect every aspect of the city. But I think if we strategically do this working with the National Guard To come into the city. Put those police back in the community along with the violence, Interrupters. I think you will see a huge swing and downward trend in violent crimes and shootings in the city of struggle. So you are saying the police are part of solution that you want them in your community? Because you know there are protests downtown. I don't know if you've seen them today. We've been covering him here in our newsroom. People who say and take money away from the police. Fewer officers on the streets. We need other kinds of programs to help people heal. Well, we're saying the same thing. I'm saying that 150 million for violence interrupters. That can come long term out of the polices budget. But the thing is when you have fewer police officers, don't you take 100 50 Million you won't need you won't need as many police officers and let me immediately you do automobile. I mean, immediately. You're saying you want them Now you want him now, So if you take 150 million away, you don't have money to pay for them. Well, we do have money to pay for them. If you look at where they're being deployed right now is doing a disservice to the public safety of this entire city. So no right now. No, We don't need to take officers off of the street. We need more officers. And let me just say this last year's budget that was passed. That budget was passed with 600 positions being eliminated out of the police and fires budget. 600. So when you look at that, and the fact that we didn't hire, we got 800 police that are retiring or could retire this year. We're headed towards a huge collision course of disaster in the city of Chicago, and you are you're You're just seeing the remnants of it right now, if we don't do something drastic I hear you, and I believe what you say is true..

"We are expecting this weekend. 5 to 9 inches. The Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communication says it is monitoring the situation. Streets and San has 300 salt spreaders ready to respond. No first focus on addressing the ice and snow, of course, along the arterial routes and lakeshore drive before they move on to the side streets. But the best advice tomorrow night might be to just stay home. Mork Carjackings in the city of Chicago happened last night, at least three additional Carjackings two of them Happened on the same block two different drivers in Edgewater on the north side. Then there was another Carjacking on the northwest side in the 4300 block of West Cornelia. The Tribune reports that things are getting so bad. That a group of aldermen are talking about hiring private security guards to monitor gas stations in special hours so that people will know that it's safe for them to go and get gas there. In those hours. It's called Operation safe Pump. It's the idea of Southside Alderman Stephanie Coleman of the 16th Ward. She tells the trip that one of her residence was carjacked at a gas station on Christmas Day, which gave her the idea to hire local security. Now. Earlier on the John Hall show, We talked with ninth Ward Alderman Anthony Beale, who says He's open to this idea, but he just thinks it's kind of sad that things have come to this. I believe we need to try any and everything at this particular point. I think it's a shame that we have to hire outside people well, when all the police and in the district are being deployed downtown, when you look at the resources of downtown, it is mind boggling, he says. The police department is has too many cops downtown and Taking them and is taking them away from the neighborhoods where most of the crime is happening. The dispute between Chicago public schools and the teachers union continues. The kids were doing remote learning again. Today. The pressure is mounting with the teachers union to make a deal with CPS so that the schools can open on Monday, But the union has said that go on strike if mayor like foot forces the issue. The latest go VIN numbers in Illinois 4156. New cases 71 additional deaths. On the Capitol Hill all is not well between Republicans and Democrats of verbal fight between two members of Congress has led to one of them moving their office. Fearing violence from the other. This was Georgia Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene recording a Twitter video on her phone. When Democrat Cori Bush screamed for her to put on a mask. Don't.

"The west side as unfortunately some complicated this is simply not true and one of those persons may be Anthony Beale the alderman from the nine Florida returning guest here on double the US Alterman how are you Sir offense not withstanding are you doing well I don't want to are you doing I'm doing very well so you have called for an increase in normally police presence but National Guard troops to help on protected areas in your ward and your this along with ray Lopez the old man from the fifteenth what do you specifically asking the mayor to do why do you think she's not listening well let me just say I'm I'm not asking for anything that they have not already done in the downtown area when you look at the three hundred and seventy five national guardsmen that are protecting the downtown area we have stored down in our community that could have been saved since the only to be faith and we're just looking for the same parameter barrier debate put downtown to be put into use in the community there was no plan for the community and because there was no claim when they got through downtown the only other place to go where the communities and we we we were totally left hanging without resources without any type of plan to help combat the molding and I'm writing and everything else that took place I sympathise Alterman alderman I sympathize with your neighborhood near your frustration let me just read to you from Fran Spielman's story this one sometimes no doubt you seen it you're quoted in at our new superintendent David Brown said during the downtown looting on Saturday they made a little over three hundred arrests I was downtown some for looting disorderly conduct but yesterday meaning you know Sunday or I'm sorry day before yesterday all of our resources were deployed to the neighborhood to the west side of south side we made over seven hundred arrests more than twice the effort in the neighborhoods if the narrative was true the narrative being that the police are not responding neighborhoods you have greater numbers in the downtown area how do you explain the superintendent's comments well you know we're going to have this opinion on everything because you know that's what you know people do they try to spend it in their favor well let me just say are you want to both of you know when you look at what happened are you going to believe me or your lying and I look at what happened out in the community let's look at all our community that were looted let me just tell you I personally stood in front of a Walmart on a hundred eight and he wrote that is the only store they did not get looted overlooked outside because I called my commander and I worked with Walmart and we secured that store that is the only store the standing on the south side it is still closed I'm trying to get additional resources to make sure the best or does not get hit because it is the last place where people can get prescription drugs from the south back into last place right now where they can go get groceries and any type of productivity grew it and I need help to make sure not prompt artistic me help I'm working with him my commissioners ma'am to get extra resources we have after state police who have been deployed out there from you know my community where we have at the state police we put them over there and my commander he put all his resources that we have available but why can't I get national guard to come out there and do the same thing they're doing downtown to put a per up to limitation for area around my Walmart wants you here we're talking with ultimate alderman Anthony Beale from the night for joining us here on double else the mayor dress that today that she doesn't think the National Guard really really is suited mission wise to work urban areas how do you respond to that well let me just say are they are the downtown okay downtown they're not controlling I'm not asking for patrol I'm asking for a perimeter barrier just like they have downtown they want to spin it and try to say well you know we don't want the national guards patrolling the community I'm not asking for that either comments about the same thing they got downtown okay and we had done that and we had we had responded forty eight hours earlier instead of forty eight hours later we would have more than three hundred seventy five National Guard if we had asked for three thousand like I feel we need to bring me in we could have put that barrier around certain communities and maybe all our communities were not available okay alderman Anthony Beale is here joining us and double the US John Dempsey alderman there's a front page story in the Tribune today I know you're on the south side but this is talking about the west side on Madison street where there was a bunch of looting that happened and this story says that officers watched it happen and did not intervene what do you know about that and what do you think about that okay all printed out here on the ground they were instructed not to engage the people that they were instructed started by who people downtown we can pretend it up somebody who's not going to own up to it they didn't put it in writing what Birbal orders were given not to engage the people how would you well that that leads to my next question how would you rate the job the David Brown has done so far as soon you've talked to what are your impressions of him and how he's handled this whole thing well well right now let me just say he walked into a mess okay so he's the only one so I cannot be totally critical of him but at the same time when you look at it last weekend we had record numbers of people shot no one the moral day weekend no overtime was given the policeman they say that they want more police on the street this year than it was last year how could that be if you can pay over time we've had a actually Phelps haul to the grocery last year because we paid over that order was given no overtime so how are you going to have more people on the street if you can give over tax that's all there we are going into this week police were not told to cancel all babies invocation base until eleven o'clock Saturday night going into Sunday that's when the order was canceled are canceled all days we want to cancel vacation or whatever at eleven o'clock morning turned on the morning that does too right that seems like alderman alderman Anthony Beale what do you think it will take and I was I grew up in a small town in Michigan I lived in Chicago since the late eighties but I've always you know I lived in in good neighborhoods what will it take one of the first steps to restore the legitimacy of police powers and tactics for black America well first of all we need to have middle of the three opportunity to be arrested and charged immediately that's the first thing that's been the message secondly we have to have total police reform ninety nine percent of the police out here are wonderful hard working men and women trying to do the best job making it but that point one percent better calls being heavy in our community we have to change that one policeman do wrong they have to be charged to the fullest extent of the law just like everybody else they can't get a pair because there are complete they can get back on the rails because they were pleased they have to be charge just like everybody else and until the eggs are happening you have to remember this is a little all over me in the African American community when ever our community have been Herrera manipulated a boom in cars are rated unjustly for decades on the land in the community that does not trust the police in order if we're going to change that we have to level the playing field and give the people the right to charge officer and help me held accountable and then maybe you prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law although we'll leave it there for this time but I appreciate it perfect in your time Sir good luck stay safe thank you I really appreciate you guys take care alderman Anthony Beale joining us here on double the us not only we have trouble in the city obviously the neighborhood was hit hard last night we're scheduled to talk to the Naperville mayor Steve Jericho he's scheduled to join us next here on double the US now at five forty five John MC checking traffic

I. sees computer science department this really interesting number emerge and that was his quote was today women represent less than twenty percent of computer science graduates nationally but thirty five years ago more than one third of grass with for women's were actually even though we're seeing more women in the workforce and more women going to and graduating from college fewer are entering and remaining in the computer field in particular so these would be the stem the subjects but I feel as though we have been seeing a big push of making sure that women are headed or know that stem is stand jobs available yeah yeah I mean there's a lot of conversation around that and there's a lot of experts that I've talked to on this topic and there's kind of this idea that there are there certain points that are so critical one of them is we do a good job of getting girls interested in stem fields and we can leave them there and so maybe there should be some culture change like once you get in the work force there's a big drop off because suddenly it's like well ahead of the support in school now what it's very different it's so maybe kind of a boys club or something like that so we see a huge drop off shortly after entering tech fields also there's a little bit of a drop off upon entering college so there's these interesting kind of critical junctions I think people are trying to target that's fascinating so it's about having that that foundational and systemic support also within the workplace that's right and so this foundation you know one thing they're going to be working on is helping with internships like that alone once you're there you can kind of get a sense of the culture is this place right for me but also you don't get a shot at something if you haven't been in the door right so an internship is off a lot of people get hired from internship so that's one thing they're gonna be doing but they're also looking to make a new computer science building at you I see so this is a very I mean sounds like a very large number and not something they can do a lot of good with that there's another story that you're also watching well there's many to be yes yes but one that I think he was about to talk about yesterday we didn't get to yeah so this story kind of made me chuckle a little bit and that is yesterday the pulmonary alderman Anthony Beale the ninth ward kind of came out of the gate going like Hey Pullman is getting this Amazon distribution center they've made a you know a a deal in kind kind of a you know a handshake agreement it's happening we're good and then a few hours later Merrill Lightfoot is like high school you're all that is not what she said she said her actual word was that he got ahead of himself okay and she says there is nothing to talk about yet Amazon would not confirm specific plans but they did say you know we're always looking for new locations wing a lot of factors how to best serve customers but we do not provide information on our future road map so they put out a statement pretty quickly it does sound like perhaps the older man got a little excited and gotten over his skis maybe but who knows how that's going to go they confirm that they were looking it is one spot they are considering but there's like when it when it did detect we're not gonna talk about him much I'm sure it's an announcement that he's really wanting to make sure I mean he even said that he felt so confident about this happening that he was willing to forego the possibility of luring a Chicago casino to the location which a lot of people talk about is a really strong possibility and he said Hey a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush and I mean he's like I'm running with this one I'm going here it was kind of a funny little comedy of errors on the backdrop of here's this huge company that we've seen kind of double down in suburbs in Joliet in wheeling in Aurora not quite in city proper other than a small warehouse in goose island aging in kind of it and meanwhile a very human thing happened of kind of maybe a misstep in maybe a not so fast and kind of all this I thought was kind of an I wanna let you know what was said on the phone call I can imagine kind of you know look at his phone was like only like for this colony nine is not available yeah and you know they're just some have speculated two of them had not missed a contentious relationship but there's been a little bit back and forth of them with them since she was selected so you know we'll see how that shakes out well WGN radio any good thank you so much Amy for talking about trending business stories with us thank you much is next from the northwestern medicine newsroom what.
