"Now here are tied and done Tweet yesterday afternoon from Governor Greg Abbott says. I just signed of law that will penalise Austin for defunding police. The Texas Department of Public Safety will pick up the slack will be paid by sales taxes that would have gone to Austin and Austin will lose annexation power. It won't be able to increase taxes and fees and the mayor of Austin, Texas, his name is Steve Adler. If you're keeping score at home, he says, it's a good thing. Austin hasn't defunded police so none of this will happen here. Well. That sparked a tweet reply from the Austin Police Association. Austin is not safer like Mayor Adler predicted with the cuts that he made de funding has a real negative consequence. 40 plus homicides in the first half of 2021 is terrible staffing, declining because of cuts and his refusal to hire new cadets for a year. We need a hashtag safer, Austin That is the message from the Austin Police Association this morning. If you're just now waking up the whole defunding the police effort. Apparently, that was a Republican effort that, according to Jen, Psaki, and a few others at the White House, it was the Republicans. They say that defunded the police when they said no to the American rescue plan, because it included more money for cops on the streets. Just delusional. They're trying to. Well, she's not the only one. She's she's just the mouthpiece, the puppet for the administration. Trying to flip the script. They're trying to Gaslight an entire nation as moms and dads as moms and dads in Austin, Texas, are burying their babies as a result of gun violence and the defunding of police. They're trying to flip the script and blame other people for their actions. We're not buying it. That's for damn sure. Clay's checking in from Snyder Ranch this morning, Clay. Good morning. Morning. Click. Hey, Good morning, gentlemen. How are you? Fine, good. Yeah. So I I appreciate the topic. In fact, we had a great conversation on this over the weekend. I'm not really sure why the City Council and Adler would even consider de funding anything at this point. I mean, the defunding The police is an obvious one. But Has the city that as citizens of Austin, have. We considered how much money is coming into this town from new companies moving from California. All these people moving our tax base must be massive relative to it was five years ago. We shouldn't be defunding anything we should be adding and if they need to add additional services to the police. Both at on use those use those extra dollars that are coming in here to Austin, Texas. I see this defunding the police. I see. Um you know the shortening of of of resources in Austin schools. Don't see a whole lot of streets being paid. I think citizens need to figure out where is all of this money going. And why are we have in conversations about de funding? Anything that is that is just a common sense Opinion right there, Clay. You're absolutely right. The city continues to grow. We should be adding more police and my prediction is by the end of the year, we will be short 500 police officers. Just because of officers that are quitting during all of this and and the fact that we're not sure when the next cadet class will even happen, and it takes so long to get a class up and running and get these officers ready for the streets and Every police department across this country has a shortage right now. It's highly competitive when it comes to recruiting out there. You're spot on, Clay. You're absolutely right. He's right. I mean, the city has money absolutely pouring pouring into it when you have a city where $350,000 houses are selling for about a million bucks. You got a rich city Things are going well, Listen, whatever. Rob Mayor Steve Adler went to California to see how they're addressing the homeless crisis there to bring some of those ideas back and and he did he did. He did bring those ideas back. Uh, and he often talks about how you know we're gonna At least that's what it seems like that He thinks we should be more like California, Seattle and Portland. 70% of the people living in San Francisco, say their quality of life has deteriorated crime and the homeless issue. That is the biggest concern right there. And you know what? It's the biggest concerns we have here to crime and homelessness. Fox News reporter Local businesses are really, really hit hard by these thieves in San Francisco. You've seen the videos, right?

"Feel about that? I wonder Austin Police Association President Qian cast today he feels otherwise. He spoke with the Fox seven news, he says this anti police sentiment that doesn't help anything really contribute a lot of it to the new wave of not wanting to prosecute. The spike also comes as the city continues to grow, and Cassidy says the number of officers is still falling each month. Ah asked the homeowners that have homeless camps directly behind their homes that they feel safer and ask him that I would like to know. I got out. Ah, a gas station downtown. Near downtown a couple of weeks ago and Teo get gas. Why did I not feel safe? Wynonna could it having to do with all those homeless people that were coming up to me? One after another. Want to know if I had money? I mean, I've had to look around and just make sure my still in America or is this a third World country? I'm not sure. Am I dreaming right now? So I will tell you that Austin Knights have definitely noticed. This sound is more dangerous. You see it all over social media. People are are tired of this place is what? You know what Boston voters really don't care to fix to do that. Well, I guess not. I guess not. I according to this a lot last election now. Yeah, I guess not. And it was almost almost a mandate. And there are a couple of run offs in some city council races. But the Greg Hussars the World Day they won with the mandates. I sure did. Yes. Oh, Locally. Elections have consequences. Very. It's a mixed message. It really is. But do you see the homeless crisis getting better? No, underneath this Thiss City Council? Absolutely not. Not that I'm out every single day looking for it. I don't have to, but it does not be out. Not not necessarily looking. But looking in the future. Do you see? Do you think? Are you confident that this city Council Is going to fix it. No, no. Why? We're not hearing anything right now about these hotels that they bought, for example that are being I guess right now kind of remodeled and retrofitted Tio. To accommodate these homeless. I'm not hearing any updates on that whatsoever, and we've spent a lot of money on that lot of money there. Still working on that man, Several organizations, several department heads and groups, you know, they still meet weekly and Trying to address the needs of this homeless community. I mean, yeah, it's really tired of being an intersection and feeling uncomfortable. I'm really tired of that time to move them, you know, being in an intersection and not wanting to make eye contact with the homeless person that inevitably inevitably is going to be standing. Outside Mom window. They've got more aggressive. They have this story steriods down story involving HB anew purchasing limits, bringing that back trying to understand this a little bit of you know the logic behind this because I mean, the HB does pretty good. They're really good at dad and they're really good. I mean, they're one of the best. Grocery chains, and that may be the best grocery chain for sure their model they really are, and they do a great job, the real, you know community pillars. If you will, well, H E B shopper's need to look out for purchasing limits on certain products. The next time you go to the grocery store. I have not seen these yet, but I haven't been in the in a grocery store in a couple of weeks. You know, I usually just do curbside. Yeah, well, HB is announcing purchasing limits on toilet paper and paper towels for some central Texas store San Antonio Gulf Coast border areas, and the H B said purchasing limits help stabilize their supply chain and ensure items are available to all customers.

"Stupid ideas, or like a whole of fame of dopey, then these guys their first time in Ducky's like first time unanimous out of the chute, so just to be clear. This is the most predictable crisis in human history. If we defund the police, what do you think will happen? Well, let me guess You're going to get a spike in crime as the bad guys figure it out. Apparently, they didn't figure that out. I mean, this is insane. And now we're supposed to believe you have the responsibility to take on other issues in Minneapolis. Like, you know, health care, schooling education. You couldn't figure out no cops or de funding the cups or trying to defund the cops was gonna lead to more crime. I mean, really, on ly a liberal. Wouldn't see this coming. What? Thomas Solo. We say right on, Lee, An intellectual wouldn't figure this out. I mean, come on, guy. Baseball coach in high school used to say that when he did something stupid Come on, guy. This is a command guy Moment. There you go. That's a damn big Ginowan pox just a few minutes ago. Yeah, we didn't say defund. We said defund. We wanted to take the fun away. How long's it going? How long it would be before the City Council here in Austin feels the same. That's a very good going to make them change their mind. I think that there was this wave. There was this wave going around the country and everybody was riding it too, You know, And and and I think that the dust is hopefully starting to settle just a bit and people are ah, there their heads were getting a little clearer and going Wait a minute. What? Maybe we need to think. Rethink this deal. We took a deep breath. And come on. I mean, let me ask you this here locally. Do you feel safer? No, no Again. I don't do anything. Tio try to put myself in myself in a situation where I don't feel say on right now. Unfortunately, that means not smelling spending a hell of a lot of time in the downtown area. Well, I I posted. I shared this on my Facebook page at Tide. Jeffries 80 exit was opposed from yesterday afternoon from the Austin Police Association. And basically, they throw out a question. I'm a victim of crime. Why can't I seem to get a detective to work on my case? Well, the answer is, according to the Austin Police Association Post is it shouldn't take a Lear jet full of class action lawsuits and attorneys touching down at the A. B I A to convince the City council that Properly staffed sexual assault, another violent crime investigations, But that's exactly what's happening in Austin. You know. The City Council's ordinance passed a month ago limits the number of personnel who hold the rank of detective at a P. D. In this ordinance below reduces the number of Austin police officers by 150 from the previous year. The ordnance could have easily moved those 150 positions into the rank of detective and solved a problem that's causing a heart ache for countless victims of crime. But Mayor Adler The council chose not to. The Police Association goes on to say the longstanding refusal by the City Council tow adequately staffed the investigations of serious crimes, robberies, assault, sexual assaults and burglaries. Leave detective detectives with farm or cases than they possibly could investigate, and many have gone and continue to go on worked and unsolved. Now they say that last year, the city paid $800,000 for an audit to figure out why. You know, a perennial understaffed investigative unit has trouble properly handing, you know, handling an overwhelming number of cases, and that study isn't due until 2022. So if you're familiar with the with the with the what Austin does with thehe countless studies and you know that it can conducts. You could predict that it will be ignored. Like all the other studies out there, right. The police association goes on to say That's why the city I just was just sued a second time by a sexual assault survivor if the City Council wants to keep ignorant, violent crime victims and hopefully bespoke attorneys into suits. And briefcases, can you no can get their attention. So the the police associates you very upset about the lack of detectives working some of these most violent crimes in our cities. They're overwhelmed. I got too many cases to few detectives working too many cases. You know, Poles might tell you one thing, but the reality is something else, and there wasn't allowed collective Shir. Across the country for cities that were de funding police. It wasn't there, And I think that those that try to get the moment of going in that direction or feeling that now I'm realizing now that the dust is starting to settle a bit, that that was a massive mistake and makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Sure, And it's just a matter of time. I think when Austin is going to realize The same thing because you know, the the solid majority is starting to get a little bit less silent. Now we're up against the clock here at 6 41. Do you have any concerns about this New York Times Donald Trump tax. It's absurd. Come on. He's a billionaire. He's Ah, high praise the president of the United States of America, and before that he was on the most famous men in the entire world. And the fact that he somehow would get away with not paying any taxes whatsoever at the most 750 $50 that I'm paying more taxes by by thousands and thousands of dollars more than he is. He is an absurd thought. But what went into that street? I'm not concerned. 6 41 Here a K LBJ.

"Not want fewer cops, Austin Police Association president Ken Cassidy tells Fox seven. What also Veda was doing is pretty common. It is very common. You see department struggling like ours. Due to Mr by the council for other departments to step in and try to steal officers, he says. Also, vato did the same thing when he was the chief here in Austin. As schools and businesses reopen, the Texas Medical Association advisor advises against requiring people who have covert 19 to get tested again before coming back to work. Dr. Valerie Smith says that's a waste of a test still have communities within our state that have testing shortages and delays in testing. And so it should help people receive quicker results because the system won't be so clock with people who are just looking for that negative return to work, she says.

"Jeffries and don Prior here on the top. Don Chester jumpin at 51283605 90. You heard the story there in Mark's News and Cassidy of the president of the Austin Police Association, was on the show earlier this morning. I'm talking about. You know he doesn't want to do this, but it sure feels like that. They're not supposed to enforce certain laws anymore. The mayor said he doesn't want any traffic stops done by anyone that has a gun. Thing about that, Buster Tal, I'd speeding running a stop sign on basically the police union. You could probably going to see officers pull back on enforcing those things because The mayor doesn't want those things enforced. And the new district attorney doesn't either. So ah, you're going to see an uptick in these kinds of things. I think you'll see more people driving without a license driving without insurance. Things like that driving cars that are, you know, not fit really fit to be on the road. You name it any possibility out there? It's going to be the wild, Wild West or that's what King cast today. You know, that's that's what he is implying here, and that's not a good thing. Yeah, not not a good thing. And of course, it's not what he wants to do. But apparently it's Ah, it's it's what the wishes of the Boston public assist the voting public is at the moment. Yes, it's really It's really dumb. It's really, really done. Well. It mean, if you live in Austin, it sounds like it's more dangerous than the living that that's the bottom line, at least or at least you know, moving towards that. Man, I tell you. I drove through downtown Austin over the weekend, and I have been down there in a while. Driving on sixth Street is a matter of fact. Very depressing. Very, very depressing. I mean, obviously, you know, you've got all the bars boarded up for the majority of them. Some of them are restaurants and they're doing their best. There's an element down there and mostly homeless that air clearly obviously homeless, wondering the streets down there, and I felt like I was in some kind of futuristic disaster movie where, you know something sure hit Earth and the morning after the morning after. I mean, it was like, where am I? What? What city You didn't recognize your city. I did not. I did not. And it was very, very sad. Well, there's well, there's a couple of things we've learned with this pandemic. The virus does not affect people that are involved in riots and it does not affect the homeless. Have you noticed that? No, No, That's not. I don't. I don't quite get that. I guess that built up immunities to simply because they're out there all Yes now. Ah, Speaking of policing. Riot declared as the Portland Police Association headquarters as people set the Union office on Fire. Portland declared AH riot as people broke into the police associate headquarters set it on fire, then the fire was later put out as protesters were told to move east. Another protest took place at the Justice Center in downtown Portland, or, according to multiple reports. Tear gas was used to disperse the crowds. And this comes as the black lives matter. Protests continue in that city. They've had weeks and weeks of violent clashes. This is the area where federal agents have been have shown up. Unmarked agents unmarked vehicles in making some arrest. And it's created a lot of controversy, including the mayor of the city that says those agents those federal agents need to leave. Police don't protect our city. Yeah, Please don't do that. Please don't make it a safer place to well, he says that and I kind of agree with him on this. If you're being arrested, your Miranda rights should be issued. No doubt know, And you should know why you're being arrested, and and you should know who's arresting you, right? Yes, we have constitutional protections for that, And I'll be honest with you. These federal agents should be reading Miranda rights. They should be identified agents. I will agree. But but but that there needed their muscle is needed on the street muscle was needed. But the fact that they're bypassing basic Miranda, I cant do that. That's wrong. That's not good. Well, you know if you think about it That's actually good for those being arrested. If you think about it, it's because the city has no intention of of prosecuting anybody that's arrested in that city in Portland, just like they're not. They're not. The mayor agrees with the protesters, so they're not gonna prosecute any so Maybe there's no need for Miranda rights, if if you're not going to prosecute Then what's the point in reading? Miranda rights? Oh, man, I again I just wonder what What is the endgame here? I know you say that they're winning and I guess and the protesters are winning and some respect that they are, But the thing is what they're going to get Lee in game. The end game is to get Donald Trump out of office. That's the ultimate in game. And Joseph Biden. In an office. That's the endgame. That's what they're shooting for. Supplied, new Trump says doesn't even know he's alive. That's right. It is Naina, Wait. Listen, Have you heard what's happening at the KFC? We heard what the colonel is up to him. Just take kids. I'll be honest with you. The colonel would be spinning in his grave if he knew. Well, this is just what I don't understand this Space, fish cakes, pet food and three d printed meat markets are a really possibility your chicken nuggets might soon coming from a Russian lab. KFC has just announced a new partnership with Moscow company called three D. Bio printing. And basically, they create in a lab chicken meat, something that least feels like and taste like chicken. It's not real chicken. It's grown in lab KFC while they've they put they removed the rap on their final experiments with their nuggets, and they plan to be testing it later this fall. The three D printed meat, It's going intergalactic as well. California based startup Finless Foods is tryingto use three D printing to spice up astronaut diets. Pets also are getting ah, sample of this another bio printing company out of Singapore. They're creating lab meets, But KFC is really on the front end of this. This is really interesting. You know, that was the colonel's original goal all those years ago. What I know he always talked about he pissed right now in the future will have three d bio printing. And that's going to be a wonderful world. This just seems so bizarre man. It is bizarre. What's happening to this one? Why not Just eat chicken? How about Yeah, they keep the recipe Original ain't broke. It ain't broke and I'm sorry. You know, it always feel guilty for some reason, eating Kentucky Fried chicken. I think it's because it's just so good. It's just so good. And you got those 11 herbs and spices and no right now. It's not being bio printed. Now. I've always been aware of that's always in the back. Mom, I got a good that would be better if it was bio parade. It was bio printed any better than we really have something, But I mean, why are they doing this? I mean, this is, uh, don't know. I don't. Why cheaper, better profit margins. I'm sure there's a rise and and not to mention the younger generation. They don't mind. They don't mind those plant or bio produced product. They have a problem with with chickens being killed. And you know that's been controversial. Chickens air here, Theo only what What else are they going to do? What else? What else? What pleasure is a chicken going to get out of life? You know you can't call it chicken them. There's no day We're chicken goes on. This was a good day. I really enjoy. You know, they know their fate in there and they've accepted it. It is 9 11 Here a K LBJ Todd and don show the terrific team. It's Sinus and snoring specialists has done an outstanding job for my family.

Speaking with KMFDM television in Beaumont Abbott, a city's like Austin, already have the tools they need without having to put people in the financial ruin if local officials enforce them. Last quarter. It will slow the spread of coronavirus. They just now need to step up and it began to enforce the order. He says.

The Austin Police Association doesn't want cops spending their time writing you a ticket. If you're not wearing a mask, president can cast details, cakes and riding people ticket for not wearing a mask will end up hurting the very people that the City Council claims to want to protect what we are talking about overburdening poor people. And now we're being has to go out and write the same people citations, and he also says making cops write tickets, for this reason puts them at higher risk of getting sick. Just last week, about 70 calls were made to 311 reporting someone not wearing a mask. The Austin school district is still holding out hope for 100% on campus learning opportunity in the fall, although Superintendent Dr Paul Crewe says only about half of parents surveyed say they're ready to send their kid back half are saying they want tohave virtual concert. So we say that I will start school. And we will have 100% option for virtual learning or students. Crew says the in class option is preliminary and could change at any time classroom capacity would begin a 25% and grow from there. Now as a S D plans for in person glasses, the group education. Austin wants no part of it. The Mayor Steve, another set of 35 days, shutdown of business could make it safe to reopen schools. But the group's president Kim's Arafat, still CBS AUSTIN even with a shut down, it won't be safe enough. Theres nothing that shows us that this is dying down. We have to be responsible when it comes to our kids and their families and our teachers. Employee state law bars public school employees from striking in Texas. But sheriff says education Austin still may call on as many teachers as possible to simply refused to work from anywhere but the confines. Of their own homes, and it is now 604 Could you look at Austin's on time trapped with on prior? No issues out there right now on any of our local area roadways?.

"You would you afraid to go downtown you concerned about your safety. When you go to the entertainment district say you want to go see a popular show at the paramount on congress avenue. Yeah. Do you feel safe in the entertainment district? No, I don't feel safe now. Now now am I scared nam not scared, but am I on alert? Absolutely. I'm on alert. Don't feel safe going to the entertainment. You mentioned the paramount. I have come out of the paramount after show before and had a homeless guy. Get up my face wanting money, and I felt threatened obscenity here that you're a longtime. Yeah. Who is scared. I didn't say no no no on alert now concerned concern now sixth street. Yeah. I think I think frightened at times might be inaccurate term. I don't think that's unrealistic at all day or night. I got you. Yeah. You're right in both sides of the issue a little bit there. I mean, you're you're no, I'm not I understand. You don't wanna say you're scared or frayed, but you are on alert out of fear that something could happen to you. I think that that it would be irresponsible to go downtown and not be on alert for the Austin police association says that fear is is is warranted. We've got a spike in violent crime in the downtown area. We get now. Austin police are beefing up their patrols the APD says this is according to data thirty four assaults were recorded in December in the entertainment district in the month of January fifty nine fifty nine thing. So far this month nineteen reported assaults in the entertainment district. Here's the president of the Austin police association. Ken Cassidy winnow about it. We've been very vocal city council's very well aware of it. But we're not keeping up with the fire EMS or police with the growth of city. Now, more patrols will also be seen around rainy street and fourth streets, the west sixth street area, where you have a lot of the shot bars that sort of thing, right? And a lot of homeless people. Let's be very very specific. I think it's interesting that you say that you are on high alert when you're in the entertainment today night. Guess wow. We went down last year. We went down to eat at a restaurant down six eight. And the only reason we did because we were downtown anyway for meeting. So we went over to six street. We're gonna eat at a pizza joint over there. And I saw things that I should not be saying in the middle of the day. Just just homeless people saw a homeless guy paying on the road. All right that Greg good deal. Cool. And then another one that was just screaming at us. And then another couple that were screaming at each other. It was just insane. And dash in the middle of the day shorter weekday. Yeah. Come on, man. Well, listen, your your your your opinion. There is not alone. I mean, a lot of business owners say the very same thing. This is somebody that spent a lot of time playing in bands down on sixth street back in the day. And even then during the load out at two o'clock in the morning, you'd have to look over your shoulder. But it wasn't that bad. Yeah. Alright. Jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety they Austin scoreboard gives its early approval to an overhaul of sexual education curriculum, despite a lot of talk among parents in a recent survey the school board discussed the proposed changes for its well for the first time last night, including new curriculum covering STD's condom, use sexual orientation, gender identity and trustee anti. She says she doesn't believe that some of the concerns that have. So far been voiced are valid at all evidence that teaching age appropriate information does not increase sexual behavior, nor does it increase gender choices. Yeah. She basically says your parent opinion doesn't matter. It's on valid. We're going to go do this. Parents don't have any say. Now, a lot of this curriculum you can opt out she also stresses that parents will be able to opt out of the curriculum. A final vote will be held next week. And it's expected the vast majority of the school board will be in favor of some of these changes. And we went over all of the changes just last week. We did. And when we read the changes word for word is proposed. Did you have any problem? You know, when you break it down, and and you got to really step back and think about it. Because a lot of parents come from a different generation where we were a lot more naive than kids are now simply because you know, as I said, even the see a playboy magazine as far as guys concerned that took a lot of work talk lot coordination and planning. And now, it's just, you know, click boom, see what you want. And they're seeing earlier they're being exposed to more. So I think given that fact alone I think it is important to start talking about this stuff earlier. Yeah. Absolutely. Upon reflection. And I kind of change my mind on that. I got you got you. Hey. It was a small group. I guess you could say the gathered at Republic Square park yesterday about three hundred coordinate. The Austin American statesman, basically they wanted to protest this national emergency. The president had called for this was put together by move on dot org. And the Travis county democrat party.

"Oh, good. I shared a post yesterday from Justin berry, he's with the Austin police association here, and he wanted to get the information out about how you could donate money to help those families those police officers there in the Houston area and other police officers across the central Texas region as well, but find him on Facebook. Justin berry. I've also shared that post that fundraising post on my pages well at Todd Jeffries, so the president of the Houston police officers association union, as you know, he'd lashed out yesterday on our show talking about the dirtbags who hate cops now to hold them accountable for spreading anti police rhetoric. Joe again, Aldy that's his name. He represents the Houston police department. What are we play this and get your thoughts on this? Because it's become something. Controversial. We are sick and tired of having targets on our back. We are sick and tired of having dirtbags trying to take our lives. When all we're trying to do is protect this community and protect our families enough is enough. And if you're the ones that are out there spreading the rhetoric that police officers are the enemy. We'll just know. We've all got your number. Now, we're going to be keeping track all the all. And we're gonna make sure that we hold you accountable. Every time you stir the pot on our police officers. We've had enough folks route they're doing our jobs every day putting our lives on the line for our. Families enough is enough is enough, and you can hear the emotion in his voice. Very angry. What's controversial part there? The question is do you have a problem with that statement? So Jeff Ward did yesterday on his show, quite sure this is the right time and the right way to make this argument. And I know this is it's impossible to argue otherwise because five four cops for shot. I believe everyone's going to eventually be okay. But the police union head. I mean, you just heard it during the news here about anti-cop rhetoric. Sure. These cops weren't targeted. They raided the house and the people responded with violence to the raid the union head in Houston, the police union head says the anti police rhetoric. And he proposes to quote, keep tabs on anti police rhetoric. Now, first of all what does that mean? Exactly what that means. But. There may be plenty of time to suggest that somebody is targeting police. It has happened. It's happened in this state. Of course, it's wrong. But I don't know if this is necessarily an argument to be made that. They were they were targeted, and it was had something to do with some sort of anti police rhetoric. These are two lunatics selling heroin out of their house or making the heroin or whatever they were doing and they responded to the raid by blasting away, and they died in the process. I just. The cops are shot. It's all wrong. They paid the price. But I don't know that it's fair to suggest right now that this is about anti police come on. Let's give the Houston. Police department of break. Let's give the union official there in Houston. A a break. I mean, come on his buddies were just shot just hours prior. Yeah. I mean, there's gonna be some emotion Romo. You cannot deny that there is anti cop rhetoric out there. We've seen it in the Twitter verse following this shooting. That's what the union official is talking about the anti cop rhetoric that is out there on the streets. It is five fifty four. Todd, Don show.
