"He's desperately been trying to write this Shakespeare biography, which if it's anything like the one he wrote for Winston Churchill, his so called hero a couple of years ago that was absolutely riddled with inaccuracy will be a work of fiction rather than a work of biography. Now it's also reported that senior Tories have accused Johnson of putting substandard people into junior ministerial posts to create issues for a new leader who'd obviously have to spend the first week or so in office sacking them all. For instance, Andrea Jenkins, the education minister filmmaking rude hand gestures to member of the members of the public. She then went on to release a barely literate explanation of why she did so. Yeah, I mean, when the list is on Friday, it is interesting. I think that's why some people feared Boris Johnson wasn't serious about resigning is that instead of just reappointing the people who'd quit, he really was going to people and putting them in positions who would never as politely as I can say this, never in a million years getting close to being in a sort of government minster job. Some of them have particularly relished not being in those jobs because they can just talk freely and they like sit on the back benches and criticize and grandstand. But some of the names that came out as you said, Andrea Jenkins, making that fuse meant to be an education minister, an example to our children and she's flipping the bird that people outside engaging in the parliamentary process. Peter bone and another one who won his name was on the list, did prompt a lot of shock surprise laughter and yes, it could mean. I mean, whoever comes in is going to completely want to reset the narrative, they'll point all the people that back them in the race. So all of these people very much had the P 45s, the resignation notice here in the UK in the wings anyway. But yeah, they might not be the best people in place for the next few weeks. Now, there were also concerns about resignation honors. If you could just briefly tell us what that is and why it might be a problem. Well, the parting prime ministers in the UK, it is a bit like, you know, presidential pardon, I suppose, in the United States and other systems, they get as this sort of one off bonus at the end of their time. They can give patronages to people, they don't give themselves they recommend them for patches to be given by the royal families that's obese, MBE's, a knighthood damehoods for someone really significant. Now, a lot of the time, this just sort of goes to the sort of back office people. It has caused problems in the past, David crown was heavily criticized for not just giving them to staff, but also his hairdresser. That was quite remarkable. Theresa May got into trouble with giving a famous but controversial cricketer because it is allegations of grinding his treatment of women. She gave one to a knighthood to him and that caused her a bit of trouble out the door. But I think with Boris Johnson, there is real interest in who he's going to give this to because he's already run into trouble by putting Sergei leves into the House of lords that has been very controversial because of his links with his father and the Kremlin. So I think people would be watching this closely to see his Boris Johnson trying to sort of sort out sweeten maybe some deals for post prime ministership life by awarding these gongs. Also some of the people in his cabinet. I mean, we could see dame Nadine Dory's dare I say it. It will be remarkable. And he did, you know, he gave a knighthood to Gavin Williamson, who I think was one of the most, I think many people would agree one of the most incompetent ministers this country has ever seen when he was defense secretary. He told Putin to just go away and thought in a meeting apparently that tractors could easily be turned into tanks. So I mean, that's the level of the knighthood that Boris Johnson is willing to give out. It'll be a funny few days, but it'll raise problems. I think there might be some pushback the royal family, of course, has been in a difficult position over recent years. And I think they will be vetting the list that Boris Johnson sends them very carefully in on Whitehall to check that it's not going to cause damage to the already sort of damaged on the system. Yeah, I've been sent thank you very much indeed for speaking to us. I'm personally disappointed that Nadine Doris is not thrown her hat into the ring yet. Simply because I love the hashtag go nads. Right, that is Vincent mcavoy and still to come on the program as European airlines struggle to keep up with the sheer volume of travelers will find out what rising flight costs will mean for the aviation industry in the long run.

"The right wing base to create this hysteria where none exists, transgender people have been using the bathroom since the beginning of history. And we're human beings and we're going to continue to do that. And we have to do it in public. Because we have to live our lives outside of our homes like everyone else. I would say to young transgender forming people that you are changing the world, you are creating new ways of understanding and being in humanity. Keep doing what you're doing, we have come such a long way since the days of stonewall that was that whole. Riot and movement, the gay liberation movement was initiated by black and brown trans and gender nonconforming and bisexual and lesbian and gay folks who have shifted and changed the paradigm and the reason I believe that we're seeing these attacks is because we are making progress. We are making changes. And so I see you, I know that this is really difficult. Young people, but the horizon is bright because I know from experience that every day we continue to make progress to move humanity forward and trans into the nonconforming people are 100% absolutely a part of that forward march and I'm here fighting for you every day, hold on as we heard many, many years ago, it gets better. And one more question for you in the little bit of time, very little bit of time we have left. What's your message to the young black people in Minneapolis who have seen a lot of tragedy and heartbreak in these last two years, even after the murder of George Floyd? You know, it's almost the same message, Jonathan, because the young black people in Minneapolis, those young kids, they are the ones who shook up the world who started the marches who started the uprising who are pushing elected officials like myself and others throughout the country, and even standing up themselves and being elected. So I would tell them the same thing. You're changing the world. You are doing you are, you have taken the baton of this long march towards social justice towards black liberation and you are bending the arc. And keep doing what you're doing, I got your back. I love you. I support you, and we sound overcome. Right? Andrea Jenkins, president of the Minneapolis city council. Thank you so much for coming to capehart on Washington Post live. Thank you for this opportunity. Jonathan is so great to see you and talk to you and I love the new show and the podcast. So thank you for inviting me on..

"It from Fox News? Be honest and a little over 10 minutes from now lots to get to with her, including a trump pinned. Editorial. Actually got published. He also reacted to New York's disastrous election. We'll talk about that with Katie as well, Pretty funny right now we are properly shredding this, uh, ridiculous. Editorial board from the Star Tribune article. Abuse of public official doesn't further causes. Protesters who harassed harassed Andrea Jenkins proved nothing and What's what's astonishing about the pieces that you know there's a lot of what they say That's actually very, very true. Far from advancing their noble goal, you know, in their mind of police accountability, those Hooker D J. Hooker, who was involved in those with him undermined it. The group senselessly antagonized the sympathetic elected official in place unrealistic demands on her, but there's no accounting whatsoever. Or pointing to the myriad Of other circumstances in which this has happened, including what's continue to happen on the streets of Minneapolis. Whether it was the attempts with the autonomous zone enough town 38th, Chicago, the autonomous zone down there. All of what they're saying, applies to all of that, including the third Precinct, and it's void from this article. Yep. Yep. I mean, you know, this article could have been written when DFL representative John Thompson showed up in a Hugo neighborhood outside the home of Bob Kroll and harassed the residents there harassed innocent teenage kids called them all Racists called them all KKK members and threatened to burn the entire town down. They could have written this editorial then, but they didn't I didn't have anything to say about that. In fact, they cheered when he got elected into the House of Representatives. They could have written this article when indivisible, decided to show up at the home of Jason Lewis and harass his wife and his kid because they didn't like what he was doing, or show up at a town hall meeting and disrupted until people storm out and anger they could have written this. Editorial 50 60 70 times. Over the course of the last few years, but they never did. Not until Andrea Jenkins poor Andrea Jenkins gets harassed and essentially held hostage by these mob members by these domestic terrorists. Now, the editorial board finds statistic your fortitude to step up and say, Hey, guys! I don't know that you're helping D. J. Hooker and the others who confronted Jenkins. They go on to say won't like to hear this, but they have some things in common with the insurrectionists who stormed the U. S Capital on January 6th. That's the only frame of reference they can come up with. Yeah, that's the only comparison. They even live in Minneapolis. I have no idea. They even live near here. Do they? Do they ever leave their house? Do they watch the news? A spirit of anarchy fueled by both groups. Intimidation was views viewed as a means to an end. Yeah, man, You know what? I only need to focus locally, You idiots. You want to get somewhere focus on everything that we've just been talking about that apply. The insurrection applies to the third precinct. It applies to 38th in Chicago. It applies to the autonomous zone It applies to up down. It applies to what happens almost on a weekend on a weekend basis on the streets of people coming in. Shutting down intersections to do street racing where people have died and got run over. Intimidation is a means to an end for these people. I mean, look, what lesson have. Has anybody learned over the course of the last few years? Intimidation works. It will get you a murder conviction. Corrosive beliefs and behavior like this is are at odds with a vibrant democracy. It's alarming to see groups with such disparate aims succumb to the temptation of coercion and persuasion and a Minneapolis the intimidation directed a Jenkins. It's part of a disturbing trend. The Star Tribune editorial board has previously decry No idea. When is there a link? I have no idea That was that I'm going to pull up the digital version to see if that sentence is actually linked to a previous editorial, where they have decried this type of behavior and I take issue with the way that they go in and talk about Jenkins here, it says here. Jenkins to her credit handles Sunday's confrontation without losing her cool the deficit. The epithets raining down while on her while in her car was what would have was blocked out, would have tested anyone's control, really watch the video she calls in white supremacy. And she cursed them out a lot. Cursing up a storm had no respect for them whatsoever. It was the without losing her. Cool. Are you kidding me? Even d J Hooker called her on the carpet for it going. She just said it was white supremacy. Look at me. In a public statement posted after the incident. She condemned being held hostage but added admirably that she remains willing to sit down with activists and advocates. Jenkins represents the eighth Ward in south central Minneapolis. But citizens stakeholders need to realize that being heard doesn't equal getting your way. Tell Marsha Howard, you idiots. If political progress fall shorter happens more slowly than desired. Frustration is not a license to abuse the public official. It's troubling that this needs to be made clear. Where were you when the city was burning down for three nights? But Andrea Jenkins gets held, you know, against her will for a short period of time, and we get this editorial just like, Oh, my gosh, I can't believe what happened to this elected official. They can only be bothered to speak up when it happens to one of them. When this is happening to Republicans and conservatives, they never have anything to say about it. I did find the link that that that that and what were they were previously discussed. They're referring to the protests that led to the the the attorney resigning in the Dante right case they were showing up inside their house. But in a reference the reference John Thompson You know in this editorial and NATO, But again, it's not. They're not condemning the behavior just because it is wrong and shouldn't happen across the board. It's more the tone of well. It's not helping our cause so much because people are filming it, and it's getting out on social media. And it's kind of embarrassing what occurred in the confrontation caught on video that they wrap up was not respectful dialogue. Nor a peaceful protest. It was a tantrum one that reflects poorly on the judgment of all who blocked Jenkins. And you're right. You know what, though? That applies to almost every single circumstance of violence that we have seen take place in Minneapolis since George Floyd was murdered by Derek Chauvin. Yep. And and I would even go further than that. I mean, you go back to when Trump came here. Not October visit that we went to and we saw, you know, DFL representatives out there in the street, harassing people as they attempted to leave blocking traffic beating on people's cars represented Aisha Gomez was out there with them. And they celebrated that that was great. I mean, that was just people stepping up and letting their voices be heard in this great democracy. No, all of this behavior every time a protest decided to block an intersection and prevent people from moving about freely. Every time a protest decided to go on the freeway and shut it down for a period of time. We were here calling it out every single time because we knew it would escalate and escalate and escalate and we caught. You should have been there from the beginning. You should have been calling this behavior. And calling on local law enforcement to shut these protests down and arrest people who are engaging in illegal behavior because just being under the guise of a protest doesn't make your behavior any less illegal, and that includes blocking a freeway blocking an intersection, preventing people from getting to where they want to be. And Andrea Jenkins just doesn't get off Scot free on this, either. She helped create this angry mob mentality, she said. This beast that has been destroying livelihoods in Minneapolis. She does not get too. I mean again. It shouldn't have happened to her shouldn't happen to anybody. She was held hostage. It's wrong. She also shouldn't have signed that. I understand why she did. But at the same time, no man she she contributed And she bolstered the individuals who stopped heard that day..

The day was sunday in minneapolis. City council vice president andrea jenkins had just left a pride event at lawrence park.

He would go see who kill black hooker says. The dispute lasted ninety minutes in only ended when jenkins signed off on six demands including creating a police accountability commission supporting the resignation of the city's mayor and dropping charges against protestors longtime attorney. Mike patent says because jenkins was under duress. The contract has no legal standing. It's one thing to exercise your first amendment rights which is fine but that's intimidating inappropriate conduct tat in defines these actions as disorderly conduct and says jenkins could file charges while lawmakers he said should consider taking action. There really should be legislation specifically for elected officials to prevent that type of thing from happening. I think it's something that should be looked at can also released a statement saying she's willing to sit down with activists to understand their policy recommendations but added. She refuses to be bullied and held hostage to somehow accomplish that. Absolutely no special protections for politicians at all. They are not special. They are not better than us. They are less than us. That is why the phrase is public servant servant. You are there as our servant to do the work we don't want to do. we don't have time for. you're not a king you're not nobility you're not royalty you're not special you are beneath us if you can be pinned in than welcome to the world of the minneapolis.

You know what the shit to me is that you can call them back Dollar for peace of death. That's what she said She got all about them after George point after Don t right. Somebody tweeted out and they were spot on. They just said, Man, you reap what you sow. Yep. Andrea Jenkins is part of this problem and created this issue and problem and now it's coming back to turn around and bite him in the rear. I got zero sympathy I got. I can't I cannot muster up one iota of sympathy. For Andrea Jenkins or any liberal politician who finds themselves on the wrong end of the mob. And has these people showing up at their house and blocking them their ability to go and leave their house because this is the devil that they made a deal with a long time ago. They thought it was great. When that was happening to Jason Lewis. They thought it was great. When that would happen to Bob Kroll when they think they think it's awesome when any conservative or any Republican gets harassed, assaulted, maligned in any kind of public setting. When somebody threw water at Tomi Lahren for just daring to enjoy a meal on a sidewalk in downtown Minneapolis Boy the city pages. They just laughed and laughed and laughed. That was the funniest thing that they could ever imagine. Now it starts happening to their own as we wait, you white supremacy or something? I don't know what's gonna get me out of this Andrea Jenkins. It just might. It might take on that from that quick clip. If you watch it, just not just not a very smart person certainly shouldn't be in charge of leading anybody. But again. Tom Friedman is the problem here, and the Star Tribune goes on to say that All of that being said in our wounded, said wounded civic pride. Having been defended, we must now concede the Friedman was not quite completely wrong. Could have shown a bit more fact. But he was writing. Um, but he was writing about problems that we do have basic that you have a basis in reality. The level of gun violence in the city that Friedman and we call home what has indeed reach levels that are intolerable. Uh, you could have also said have reached record setting levels have reached levels that the FBI, the declared unprecedented Right. But no that would make might make it seem worse than it is. We'll just call it intolerable. The defund Police movement may indeed be contributing to the city's worrying loss of police officers may indeed it is it is it is, and you know it is And if you were honest, and you were intellectually honest and you were just a bunch of propaganda spreading hacks, you would say that it is you would explain to your readers that it is and why, but you don't want them to know that because you're a bunch of hacks. Friedman is right about another thing, though, and this is the real problem, John Republican led efforts around the country to tighten election laws pose a serious threat to our democracy. What does that have to do with the crime in our city? Oh, well, the defund police movement might help create an environment of fear, and that might make the Republican platform harder to stop. Oh, so that's the real problem. Here. Look, people are dying and getting shot and getting killed and six year olds are getting shot and people are lose. Parents are losing their Children left and right. But the real problem is that Republicans want to tighten election laws. And if we point out all of these dystopian problems and and the crime thing, and if we agree with it, it might be inclined somebody to vote Republican and we can't have that. So sorry, guys, you're gonna have to keep dying. So we can keep Republicans out of office. Okay, This is the this is the AOC. We just can't you know, they're just they're being hysterical about it. Just just hysteria. That's all. It's. It's the Republican's fault for caring about the rising crime and Carjacking in deaths. And and all that, Okay, But that's the real issue, Guys. Okay? All right.

"I'm Audie Cornish in Washington and I'm Ailsa Chang in Los Angeles. Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer convicted of murdering George Floyd has received his sentence read here by Judge Peter Cahill. A sentence for Count one. The court commits you to the custody the commissioner of Corrections for a period of 270 months. That's 270 Shoven sentence of 270 months works out to 22 a half years. That's 10 years beyond the minimum required by sentencing guidelines and short of the 30 years the prosecution had originally requested And under Minnesota law, Shoven could be considered for parole after serving two thirds of that time. Andrea Jenkins is vice president of the Minneapolis City Council. She represents Ward eight. George Floyd was killed. Andrew Jenkins joins us now welcome Thank you. So how satisfied are you with the sentence of 22 a half years for Derek Chauvin? Right. Well, you know, First of all I do want to just acknowledge and, um, offer my condolences to the Floyd family. Um, certainly to his young daughter, Johnny, Um and really just think, Darnell A Fraser for her bravery and courage and shooting the video and then standing up and testifying. Today. I am. I'm sad. I'm torn. I'm disappointed, Conflicted. But but also determined, um, to continue to fight for justice and fairness and equality and equity. And, you know, while the sentence wasn't everything that I think a lot of people hope for certainly the the Floyd family. I do think it was, um It is substantial. I mean, 22 a half years and penitentiary is certainly a Substantial sentence for for anybody to to reflect and to, um, you know. To pay for their for their transgressions. Mask. Have you been hoping personally for the maximum sentence of 30 years? You know, I was hoping for a fair and, um and and just, um, sentence. Um and I think a 30 year sentence would have been appropriate or The level of humanity that was shown, uh um in that nine minutes and 48 2nd video that the world watched. Have you been in touch with George Floyd's family today? After the sentencing was announced, if you have, can you tell us anything about how they're feeling right now? Well, I have not had an opportunity to speak with them. Previously to the Um um, sentenced today, but I do anticipate. Um, uh, scene shortly, Um But, you know, I I think there is, um some relief to the, um Said the closure of this, uh, sentence. Uh, I think you know, I certainly think that the prosecutor Attorney General Ellison, um, had prepared the family for a range of possibilities. And so, um, while I know that they are disappointed, um In in the sentence in that it did not, um, reach the maximum, but it certainly is beyond What some may call a slap on the wrist or a, you know, probation or a 10 year sentence, which was the minimum that could have been offered. And, uh, this sentence goals. Um, well beyond that. Minnesota Public Radio noted today that Shelvin is the first white officer in Minnesota to face prison time for the killing of a black man. I'm wondering, Does his conviction and sentencing 22 a half years feel like a unique exception to you when it comes to cases of police violence, or Does it feel more like the beginning of a possible new path here? Do you think? I am optimistic. You know, I run for public office because I am optimistic that we could change and we can shift and we can grow and transform our communities. So I have to take this as a Positive step in the right direction. Um, I will be continuing to call for equity injustice and I hope that the community will continue that call that I believe led to this, um, conviction into this sentence. To this day. Um You know, the other officer that has been convicted of murder in in Minneapolis was a African American. Well, African who lives in America. Soul. Certainly African American, uh, but Somali born um Police officer who received a sentence of 12 years, um and and that the circumstances were very different. But, um, you know, it is, um, a positive step, I think in the right direction. Well, I do hear the hope in your voice, but we should know that the Minneapolis police department is at a bit of a crossroads right now. Obviously, the Department of Justice is investigating it At the moment more than 100 officers. Have left the force in just the last year. In your mind. Where does the Minneapolis Police Department go from here? Like how do they gain the confidence of this community? Mhm. Great question. You know, I will only add to your initial statement bad. Um we're also being investigated by the Minnesota Department of Human Rights. Um And we are down about 200 officers, uh, a little bit more than 200 officers. So we are at a crossroads and we are And a place in in this community where distrust and mistrust is at a all time low. I think that we have to, um, as as lawmakers and policymakers really, um Continue to push for for equity and justice. Um we really need the um George Floyd Policing Act to passing Congress because if that happens, then we can get at some of the systemic issues that are played in the Minneapolis police Department of Boston Police Department, The New York City Police Department, LAPD and just all over the country. We must have some federal regulations to help us improve policing in America. We have to transform policing in in ways that really, um Meet the needs of the community today, and right now we're working with an 18th century model, and we're in the 21st century. And so we have to reimagine and, uh And in transform public safety, and I think, you know, taking some of the responsibilities from police like mental health responses. Um, traffic, minor traffic stopped. Those kinds of things will begin to help improve. Um, community relations movie. Alright. Andrea Jenkins is vice president of the Minneapolis City Council.

"Radio in Boston on We're back. I'm Melissa Harris Perry in for 10, Xena Vega. We continue our conversation on the one year anniversary of George Floyd's murder by White police officer Derrick Show, Vin. I'm back with Andrea Jenkins, vice president of the Minneapolis City Council, and Aaron Morrison from The Associated Press. So Aaron. Let's talk about how this wave of movement for black lives really pushed out new ideas around how we can address policing and racial justice. Instead of hearing about body cams or implicit bias training, the language was defund and abolish. And you talk about what defund means. And what abolish might look like Well, I think pretty early on as as that language emerged in the protest last year. It. You know it was seized upon Is this very scary notion of when you defund the police that somehow that means, um you're saying absolutely no police whatsoever? Absolutely no public safety And that is actually far from what Activists were calling for last year and what they continue to call for today what they're asking for us to take some of the money some of the massive, really massive amounts of money that is that it goes to police budgets and put some of that towards Services that provide care to people so that they don't end up in these interactions with police officers that are often just, you know the consequences of poverty. The consequences of homelessness. The consequences of, you know, not having enough income not being employed. So Andrea as a elected member of a City council. That's exactly the kind of work that you all might have to do. Right. Take that city budget. Look at it and move resource is from the police pot to to another bucket. What does that look like for you in practice? What would that mean on Mm hmm. So we have, um, absolutely done that. And to be real clear. Melissa, we started sort of reallocating funds. Before the death of George Floyd. We have Ah, very Engaged and activist community on DSA. So my first year in office, we shipped it a million dollars from the police department. To create, um, the Office of Violence Prevention and then subsequently injustice passed budget cycle. We shipped it over $8 million to, um Who's up that office of violence? Prevention? Um To work with community face groups toe To do what we call, interrupt certain and interrupt doors, toe really engage with young people to prevent crime before it happens. Particularly violent crime. And so we started that process. I have to admit it is a very challenging place to be as a Azzan elected of issue because you know a big part of our responsibility is public safety, however, that public safety cannot be at the expense of Black lives that seemingly are Expendable. Too many police departments all around the country, you know, And I think that reallocation of funding is going to continue. We have Ah. Our police budget last year was about $187 million. And that's a significant Chunk to change and in our overall budget, and we have to really Um, As as Aaron noted, Look at affordable housing. Look at job training opportunities. Look at universal basic income as ways to help families overcome some of these Systemic and historic challenges that have been a part of black life in America. So Aaron, both you and Andrea have pointed to some critical issues around economics, poverty, income inequality. But also to this kind of core question about the valuing of black life. The idea that when we say public safety, black folk ought to be not only part of that public, but maybe even central to it. Have. We made progress on that part? You know, it's hard to say to be quite honest with you because, um, it's e think a lot of times and we when we've gone through these inflection, you know, period or did the moment's flash points. Andare history in the history of racial justice in America. There's often this push for fast solutions and fast results. So sometimes people are like, OK, so it's a year later. What has happened? Um, do have we solved it yet, and quite honestly, this type of change, sister ending systemic racism. Addressing systemic racism is not something that you're going to solve overnight is that obviously it's not something that you're going to solve, even in a year, so you can barely even begin to measure whether or not some of these changes are actually having the impact the intended impact s. So I think it's still to be seen if we're going to get to a place where these programs that shift in funding is actually making a difference. And I so appreciate that point. I I often remind young activists who I meet with or or teaching my class is that you know, we're probably not smarter, better, you know, cooler, more strategic than Ida Wells or Frederick Douglass or energy, Luke Cooper. And if it was easily solved, they would have already solved it right. We are in a long set of struggles here. I love the one thing in particular one of zoom in on and that is the question of measuring it. Where we on data collection around these questions. So the George boy, justice and policing It also calls for the creation of not only better measures for tracking discriminate, discriminatory policing. Um it's also calling for a database of misconduct of officers s so that we can actually measure how, um how often officers are being brought up on these types of investigations on Dwight happens to them. Do they get to just jump around to different police depart? Is when you get fired from one of those air. Those are things that need to happen in order for us to really understand and measure the problem.

"We're going to begin in Minneapolis. And I'm joined now by Andrea Jenkins, Vice president of the Minneapolis City Council, Andrea, It's great to have you back. Melissa, How are you? Hi, I'm um, We're having that moment and I'm thrilled that you are here to talk with us about it. We're also joined by Aaron Morrison, who is national race and ethnicity writer for The Associated Press. Aaron also thank you for being with us. It's great to be with you, Melissa. So Andrew actually do want to start with you. What does it look like in Minneapolis today? One year since George Floyd was murdered. You know, Zeb, you tiff, a You know, I think residual trauma and a sui continue to be traumatized, as has been widely reported. Don t write was killed in the middle of in the mist of the trialing. So there's just still a lot of anxiety. A lot of angst, um Crime has really gone up in the city of Minneapolis. And so while people are out and planning events to commemorate and have been all weekend Um, you know, there's still a lot of tension. Aziz. We get ready to see the other three officers go on trial. Yeah, That's how I would describe it. And you can you walk with me for just a moment through that statement You made that crime has gone up in Minneapolis. How do we reconcile that with the calls to dismantle policing as we know it? It is a really challenging juxtaposition. And you know, we have to change the police. Apartment here in Minneapolis. And I believe the way policing operates throughout this nation, Atyou noted. Over 900 people have been Killed by the police since George Floyd's and unfortunate, tragic demise and so We have to change, but we still need professional accountable, You know, Law enforcement and so It's a tough juxtaposition, but we have to work together. Toe. Bring some some positivity. Safety. Um And, um Accountability to this to this system that we have common policing like everything in our society. Things have changed and policing has it And that's the problem. We had a change policing. So I'm gonna I'm gonna pull Aaron and here on exactly that point, because Aaron, local communities not have to figure out something this complicated entirely on their own. What is the current state of federal reform around policing? Well, it's a Zafar as we know it's being investigated as we speak. The George Floyd Justice and Policing Act, which was actually proposed free soon after George Boy's murder last year. Um, you know it was passed by the house on then it just sat in languished because there was no appetite to pass it in the Senate. Now that the Senate is very narrowly controlled by Democrats that work has, you know began again. It began again earlier this year. But there's still some sticking points on federal reform. And this is federal reform that would you know, in a way incentivize local police departments to enact some of the sweeping reforms that activist advocates have been calling for four years. Sure, and federal incentives matter a lot, right? We saw this after 9 11 when federal incentives around amping up police and police technology made huge differences in what was occurring for local communities, engaging with what had previously felt like police forces and then begin to feel like military Right. So what? What? The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act does one of the provisions is to limit now and ratchet back? Um, this transfer of police Excuse me, rather military equipment that we saw go to local police departments, which they then used against the protesters. Who were you know, out on the streets. Still, you know, Standing up against what they saw happened. T George voided the literal lynching that they watched on on live television. Andrea. One important change was implemented around policing in Minneapolis fairly swiftly, but we didn't get to see its impact because of the nature of the pandemic. So it's my understanding that school resource officers will not be returning to the Minneapolis public schools. What does that look like? And how might that also be? Sort of a model for the kinds of reforms that you all can implement. Going forward. So certainly That That's a very true statement. And we really haven't seen because the return to school is still quite spotty, um, lots of distance learning continuing to happen. But I think you know we'll see more changes this coming fall. But you know what's going on? I think schools are hiring. Security officers, and I think we'll start to see more of that in in our communities. Um Hopefully, they're unarmed. I'm not quite sure I think you know, because we have a different school system that's separate from the City Council. But I believe those Security folks will be unarmed, and we'll see that kind of Tura privatization of security. If you will think in other parts of our society to certainly, um, we are the City Council is Developing a non armed mental health response. And, you know, I believe those kinds of Responses are what we're going to see more up in the future. So, Aaron, I wanna play with that idea little bit. What if, In fact, we were to see sort of more private security in neighborhoods in communities, rather than those that are haven't least some level of accountability. By working for the public. Is that the kind of reform that racial justice advocates are going for in this moment? Or does that actually potentially move us into even less accountability? I would say the latter. Absolutely not. I don't think anybody you know, certainly in the in the racial justice movement is calling for the, uh, you know, privatizing police or security? I mean, let's just remember. Trayvon Martin was killed by someone who would you know, was acting as a volunteer neighborhood watchman. So we know we've we've seen this episode before. We know what would happen, um, particularly to people of color to the black Pope folks, and, um, you know if if we moved in that direction, so there needs to be more accountability is what advocates have been sending more accountability and not less. And privatizing just creates a whole new set of problems for the For the movement. You mentioned, Um this idea that in the Senate right now, the George Floyd, Um, policing act is it's stuck. Might it be possible that it could become somewhat less stuck? As a result of President Biden hosting George Floyd's family today is their presence potentially meaningful for moving the legislation. I think so, Um, just this is not the first time that the family want has been in Washington to meet with lawmakers specifically on the George Floyd Justice of Policing Act. However, I think on a day of significant is this meeting with the Bite administration meeting at the White House meeting with the president, in addition to having some meetings with with the lawmakers who are actually negotiating this, I think could It seems like it could have it. Impact and moving it forward that you know, it would be sort of their 11th hour last plea. T o do something. It's been a year to do something that that released puts America on a path towards ending such such an epidemic of violence against folks. And friggin Aaron. Stick with us. We need to take a quick break, and when we come back, I want to start thinking about the vision for a future with a different kind of policing. Throughout the week. We ask our listener.

There was video in eight of those sixteen and one one of those incidents ignited a social movement that led to the largest demonstrations in us history at eight twenty pm on may twenty fifth twenty twenty derek chauvin murdered george floyd on the streets of minneapolis and seventeen year old. Ornella frazier used her cellphone to capture the white minneapolis police officer kneeling on floyd's neck for devastating nine minutes and twenty nine seconds.

Chauvin ignored. george floyd please. For breath in disbelief mentions saw the life leave. Floyd's body even as the knee remain on his neck and despite the dangers of global pandemic millions of people took to the streets. We igniting the movement for black lives and in this wave of movement activists demands shifted from reform to abolition from investing in police training and technology to defunding. The police and as protesters took to the streets. They demanded racial justice and they were met with harsh reaction by police officers. Retract shooting pepper balls at us. They've thrown out tear gas flash bangs earlier this year a jury found derek. Chauvin that former minneapolis police officer. Guilty of murder and the city of minneapolis promised to begin dismantling their police department. Now show vince.

So all this hour. We're going to examine what has changed in the last year. We're going to talk about the future of the movement for racial justice. We're going to discuss how.

How do you reconcile that with the calls to dismantle policing as we know it. It is a really challenging juxtaposition position. And you know we have to change the police department here in minneapolis.
