Do you have any read on the race at the moment, either race?

All that is to say. Extremely close. Republicans have some advantages here. Historically, they've won run offs in the Senate races in Georgia. Purdue actually outperformed Trump and Republicans control every statewide office in the House and Senate there in Georgia. I think the key thing is just to get this messaging advantage right to show that winning the Senate winning these races means protecting and preserving. Four years worth of Donald Trump's agenda and stopping four years worth of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Docs Agenda. It's an interesting dynamic for sure, first time that we've had a president who has, in theory, lost a state and immediately gone to campaign. To statewide races for his party, and I'll It'll be something else. Seen all this. Come together, Ryan, always a pleasure talking with you appreciate it. Thanks so much. Ryan casting against CEO Beast Digital at Ryan Castle on Twitter. All right, let's take a look at some of what's going on around our state first on the virus. So while Florida Has experienced arrives in covert cases along with the rest of the country. Did you know that the daily average case count over the past week has actually declined. The current daily average is right around 7700 and 50 cases, which remains About 4200 daily cases blow our advertise in July. Welcome back around to that particular point because you often hear numbers without context. We continue to do better than many states. And arguably better than most when you factor in the economy. Right here in Florida and even sound for him. Also for his gas prices. This was a pleasant story over the Thanksgiving weekend, so our gas prices averaging $2.3. It was a 10% decrease every year ago, actually the lowest average price for gas during the holidays since 2009 And related to all this If you take a look at what actually did happen well, not a lot in the air Wednesday did prove to be the busiest air travel days since the pandemic started, but overall air traffic average about a 60% decline in our state over a year ago. Also starting today, the Broward School district, They're instituting Ah policy requiring most virtual students to use cameras during classes in order to be counted as a present. Miami Dade actually had this policy enforced at this onset of the school year belief that many students have been disengaged, just flipping on the camera and not actually paying attention afterwards. So that to me, he seems like a pretty good idea. And if you're going hold on when When did that take place? The Broward School board actually voted on that last week and Esso again that takes place today. Virtual classes. I mentioned The virus in our state and a bit of a reality check here. So much attention gets paid to numbers and everything else and it sounds really bad in our state, right? But how much of that is just simply because we're a large state. The answer is a lot We actually ran 23rd and covet 19 cases when you adjust for population in Florida. And as far as policy goes, were the 11th lace restrictive. So what does that tell you? Well, we've actually been able to have fairly flexible policy. They were not in the top 10 in terms of least restrictive. Well having about average covert cases despite being the third largest cut of state in the country. So despite a lot of what you hear the lax contest text just numbers that sound big and sound ominous and everything else. What we actually see is that we struck a pretty good balance in our state, including with our state's economy, continuing to perform better than average, for example, for his unemployment rate right now, with 6.5. Lower than the national average and way lower than a state like California and 9.3%, which has the most restrictive policy of any state. That's part of the Lower 48 so it you know, when you put things in perspective, it really is the nearest bad as a lot of the numbers in the day today make it seem be right back.

G. it is ten twenty welcome back to the show on this Friday not the normal and Natalie Rodriguez with your top twenty story morning Natalie good morning Brian a heads up to Broward parents there will be no camps opened at any Broward school campus for the week of spring break spring break fee based camps for students at Broward county public school sites have been canceled until further notice yes speaking abroad we have Broward sheriff Gregory Tony joining us now sure how are you doing Hey good morning Brian I'm doing pretty well understand active as you can imagine I would imagine as terrified I know there are many concerns the community including scams that have come about around South Florida with some people try to be opportunists dressed up saying that they're from the CDC what can you tell us about that some of the concerns out there right now these people that are being opportunists yes sure so I'll talk about a couple things here you are correct right in that we've had all kind of increase in information comment related to scams you know are both together teams are monitoring article website platforms out there and we seen complaint with social media post people pretending to either be able to produce and provide a vaccine for the virus we see an incident of people are developing different go fund me pages of that are not legitimate and so some of the things we want to encourage the public to do is avoid the type of phishing scams occurring out there you don't start logging on for products that are have not been approved to the CDC anything that hasn't been published on a more of a professional medical site in look up any type of investment you're gonna be making in terms of these companies out there to say Hey we have a cure come on in and invest in our stocks look at the US securities exchange commission for more information don't be lowered into the type of scams all we did hear about the potential of people walking around wearing you know white jackets and gloves and pretending to be all members of the CDC but I will tell you we look at our logs in terms of the districts are responsible for your Burke county and we haven't seen that but it wouldn't surprise me that in parts of the county that are not part of Berkshire's office responsibility that such activities are occurring in my my warning for the public would be if anyone locking your doors and it doesn't look the part on open your door all reach out to us call us and we will come out and inspect investigate these type of individuals certainly one of the ideas that's in the process to point out I don't know if Hillsborough Miami Dade I've heard rumblings about Broward Palm Beach county and about prisoners being released because of concerns about the corona virus what are your what's your understanding of what your thoughts about that type of dynamic so over the last few days there have been multiple communications with the FSA which the Florida sheriff's association and is comprised of all these years and basically we've been on different teleconferences talking about things that we can do to mitigate exposure into our jails are here in in Broward county of course we have several thousand inmates in our custody care control right now and different counties at all and you know different things are locked in other words I think two counties up north that decided to release a small population I think Hillsborough County that was about a hundred and sixty it's my contention in my view here that we don't have a necessity to release anyone we've put checks and balances in place to make sure we mitigate any type of spread from any new arrest you comment or gel we work with our our medical provider which is a group well path to insure that we have quarantine and isolation and decontamination elements circle in our jail in as of to date we have not had any positive confirmations of anyone having cold at nineteen and so I don't find it relevant right now for our agency for me to start releasing individuals but what we have done off from the control capacity from our law enforcement folks in the field is to look at what type of rest do we really want to execute this is not the time for us to bring in people for you know minor infractions that expose not only the deputy themself as they're encountering these individuals but the transport aspect of bringing someone into the jails so I'm confident that we can help mitigate the spread with the checks and balances we put in place right now and I'm not at a point where we need to start releasing people from jail that's already in custody it certainly appreciate where you're coming from maybe it is very similar to the conversation that we had yesterday with Palm Beach county sheriff ric Bradshaw and the one thing my question I understand there are great answers in some situations right now what is the concern that you might have even misdemeanors criminals that are are committing those that are not being detained that's suddenly become emboldened because they realize they won't be in prison right now yeah and that's the balancing act one week to put out marching orders my command in echo dots were defeated that as if with any case that they have it is always down to their individual discretion in so if they know they are encountering someone who committed a misdemeanor infraction and this is the first time Brian they're not a problems out in the community this is their fifteen twenty and thirty five and we know that there's a more likelihood of by cutting its person of great who's been in part or in our system fifteen twenty times in a problem pretty community this is probably one that we're gonna bring in a copy of because there is a nexus to what you're talking about that level of hate we just heard this year from the radio thing they're going to be you know reducing the of a type of misdemeanor arrests are gonna make and the last thing we want to do is empower these criminals are these individuals out there will be more inclined to take advantage of the situation and so we're not with a hundred percent certainty saying we are not

"Back over the last year, and all of the all of the people who have emerged from the parkland shooting with a certain amount of of notoriety or prestige when you think about it. They're probably the most prominent spokesman for the March for our lives, a group that he and other stoneman Douglas students founded is David Hogg stoneman Douglas again, I think he was a senior. Yeah. He was a senior at the time. And that organization that he helped found the March for our lives won the International Children's peace prize in his activism led to a significant amount of criticism for him as well he and his younger sister, Lauren wrote a book called never again, a new generation draws the line, and he will be he took the one year off instead of going directly to school, and he will be attending Harvard in the fall one of the other young people who emerged was Kyle cash cash. Oh, the stoneman. Douglas, Douglas, senior has become the most prominent conservative voice among the students. He has met with the president and with members of congress and supreme court Justice. Clarence Thomas was a member of Governor Raimondo Santos's transition team, and is high school outreach director for turning point USA, which of course, is Charlie Kirk and Candice. Their group that basically works with college age conservative students and Kyle has been appointed at the helm of the outreach to high school students. Of course, one of the parents who has emerged Zandi Pollock Andy as become a friend. His eighteen year old daughter meadow did die in the shooting. He has become the most outspoken critic of the school and law enforcement officials among all of the victim's parents, and he is a force now in Florida's conservative politics. He has bet with the president. He was on covet governor Disentis transition team, and he is now protesting in front of city furniture. Most days pushing for the removal of Broward school superintendent, Robert Runcie. And he is also the only parent that I know of that is suing the perpetrator of this crime whose name I. I will never say on the air the Broward school district. He's suing and he's suing the sheriff's office as well as deputy Scott Peterson who was on duty at the school during the shooting, but did not enter the building to confront the shooter. Another parent who has become a vocal person is Fred Gutenberg, who's fourteen year old daughter. Jamie was killed. He has become an outspoken advocate on the other side for gun control and every other liberal 'cause he did draw national attention once when he approached the new supreme court Justice spread cavenaugh during the confirmation hearings. He said he extended his hand and that cavenaugh walked away Justice Cavanaugh said he did not know who he was. And he was really kind of preoccupied with what was going on. He was also part of the transition team for new state agriculture Commissioner, Nikki freed, which is he she is actually Florida's only statewide democratic officeholder. And and proponent of gun control Ryan petty, who's fourteen year old daughter Elena. Died was appointed to the state commission investigating the shooting his comments tended to hit a police in school system failures he perceived. He did lose a bid for the Broward County school board. But was also part of governor dissents his transition team match Schachter, who's fourteen year old son. Alex died became the emotional voice of the parents as a member of the state commission and founder of the group safe schools for Alex he has traveled extensively looking at school security systems, Laurie ala deaf who's fourteen year old daughter Eliza was killed one a school board seat representing parkland in August, she tried hiring a Runcie critic as her secretary. But the superintendent said the woman who happen to have been a college instructor who holds a doctorate was unqualified because she didn't have related experience and. Of course, we all know that that was political Allah has pushed a superintendent Runcie to set a timeline for implementing school security projects. Tony Montalto who's fourteen year old daughter Gina was killed as president of stand with parkland. A group of parents and spouses of the victims the group has pushed for enhanced school security measures better mental health screening programs and universal background checks for gun purchases Manuel Oliver who seventeen year old son. How arcane died is an artist who has created projects honoring his son and condemning gun violence. He recently took on comic. Louis CK who mocked the victims during a December performance at his website change, the ref dot org. Oliver poses as a stand up comedian in the form of a joke. He tells about dropping his son off the day he died and no one laughs. He also, I believe was the parent who stood up recently. During a. A hearing that was taking place on gun issues in congress where a congressman Matt gates had basically talked about something that was not had nothing to do with gun violence, and he objected to that quite loudly and that made the the news as well. Some of the people that we have been observing quite closely. Of course, former sheriff Scott Israel who the governor suspended on January eleventh saying he quote repeatedly failed and has demonstrated a pattern of poor leadership now before the shooting. Scott Israel, had changed his department's policy to say deputies may confront shooters from shell confront shooters. And that of course. Was what gave cover to the eight deputies who did not confront the gunman when they arrived during the shooting and instead stayed outside Scott. Israel's attorney says he intends to challenge the suspension any attend intends to run again next year, which is shaping up to be a pretty intense primary because the current sheriff, Gregory, Scott is a democrat as well. So he would have to challenge him for the nomination since he is the incumbent sheriff now. And of course, one of these people who believe that the sheriff's department should not be a one of those offices where the party affiliation or partisanship should take place at all when I dial nine one one I don't ask them to send a conservative or liberal or a democrat or Republican. I just want to send a sheriff to my house. Another one of the people. Of course, it came under tremendous fire was Scott. Peterson a longtime Broward sheriff's deputy was assigned to the school and retire retired very shortly after the shooting security video showed he drew his gun but did not enter the three-storey freshman building where the killings took place. Instead he took cover nearby and stayed there for about fifty minutes in interviews with the today show in the Washington Post. He said he did not know where the shots were coming from. He was subpoenaed to testify before the state investigative commission, but invoked his fifth amendment rights. Silence after it was announced he is under criminal investigation. The commission concluded that he lied about. Not knowing the location of the shooter and several members called him a coward. He is collecting a pension of more than one hundred thousand dollars annually. I don't think any amount of money can race the pain that he has to now go through daily for what he lacked to do in those incredibly important moments of the shooting the superintendent of schools, Robert Runcie is a remains in office, although many of the victims families would prefer to see him removed. He does have a backing of of a majority of the nine member school board and governor descent this while he would have liked to suspend secretary Runcie. He said state law won't allow it. Because Runcie is an appointed official not an elected official, and it is very. Complicated for him to remove all the school board members. That would in fact. You have to have to leave in order for there to be. A change in heart. Let's put it that way. So a lot of the names have become national names. They've become national stories certainly this country in its entirety has been talking about whether or not it is appropriate for schools in an effort to mitigate this school two pipeline pipeline from school to prison, in my opinion nonsense that many young people are violent and inappropriate in school settings. And it is excused because they don't want to cast a tie those kids behavior to a future outcome, and many of us believe that that's exactly what happened in. This instance, that this this killer. What who said he would plead guilty in exchange for a life sentence at the prosecutors remain steadfast and seeking the death penalty. We still don't have a trial date set a was charged in November with attacking a jail guard who investigators say told him not to drag his sandals. While walking the guard was able to fend off the attack. This is not a healthy camper. Anyway, we're gonna take a break. And then we're going to wrap this up for this final segment of the show. And we're going to talk about some other things in the final hour of the program. And and hopefully use this last few minutes to either remember or to challenge what's gone on in the year since the tragedy at Marjory stoneman Douglas high school remember.

"This. This is a step in the right direction to get rid of these people that shoot up many people all have mental problems. This would be a start. Now, I'm thinking some of those people were under the radar anyway, and they weren't followed up on. So what's the answer? Are they really trying to take all our guns away or trying to a healthy mentally ill people? This is an excellent question Marge at very insightful that you recognize that the response of a red flag law to parkland is ironic because how many red flags were there about the gunman? Many many of those people for an awful lot of them. In fact, the Jamie Kloss kidnapper is a notable exception in that he had nothing in his background that would suggest he was capable of such horrific crimes using a gun. Right. Most mass shooters do in fact have red flags now the suspect in Broward County, and I'll remind you March thank you for the call. And thank you for bringing that up. And thank you for having an open mind. I do appreciate that Marge. You started out saying, hey, this would be a good idea. And this is the thing this is why this this proposal is so insidious because it sounds so good. We're going to take guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have guns. Well who determines how can a judge determined someone's mental state? Do we get testimony from that person's psychologist? Do we force psychologist break? Doctor patient confidentiality how? How do we a judge who's never even met the person who is the subject of this confess Katori hearing is just going to determine? Oh, yeah. That person shouldn't have a gun. And it's it's sort of like we've been talking a lot over the past two years about Faisal warrants a Pfizer warrant by by necessity has to be secret because you're taking out a warrant to try to survey all somebody if they know they're going to be surveilled. Does it really work? Now does it. But the only evidence that's presented is presented by the people who want the warrant. This is why fi judges almost invariably grant these warrants because there's no evidence in the other direction. This is the reason that we have an oppositional adversarial Justice system because the judge a neutral arbiter is supposed to determine who side is correct. Well in a red flag loss state. There is no other side. There is no evidence presented. Hey, I'm sane, and what kind of designation this odd? Obviously produces a court record, right? What sort of red scarlet letter A? Do you have that you wear on your criminal record on your court record for whatever period of time? It may be that you were so unbalanced that you had to have your guns taken away. What does that do for your prospects of employment? How do you go about saying? Okay. Well, I got my guns back three weeks later because it turns out that my dad took out this order because he was worried about me. But there was really no reason to be worried. I'm totally fine, but employer sees that give it trust me, given the choice between the employees the perspective worker who had to have his gun seized and the ones who didn't chances are you're gonna pull from the pool of candidates who didn't have their guns seized. But it is good March. You're you're keeping an open mind about this. And this is what's so significant here in Broward County the gunman there. Raised so many red flags she was making explicit threats to explicit people yet the Broward school district and the Broward County sheriff's department wasn't following up on this for years. This gunman was reported as making very specific very serious threats. He was online stalking yet. Nothing happened. Okay. Had something happened. All right. Maybe the shooting could have been avoided. But does that gunman as awful as sick as twisted as evil human being as he is does he get to have his constitutional rights. Trampled because the school district doesn't like him because the school district thinks he's dangerous. No there needs to be an adversarial proceeding to determine that he's dangerous we fought this decades ago here in Wisconsin, where someone couldn't be put in a mental institution against their will that they needed to you need to show, and you need to give the person who is theoretically going to be put away the opportunity to say, no, I'm not crazy because deprive someone of their freedom or to deprive someone of their property. These are very serious powers of government that need to be restrained. Christian in Kenosha, high Christian, you're on the Dan O'Donnell show. How you doing circle ahead? Go ahead. Yeah. Yeah. I just had an idea of what's to stop expanding it further and doing it with drunk drivers. You report somebody who, you know, their drinks and dry, and then they show up at your house and take your car. Excellent point. That is an that is a fantastic analogy Christian. There are states Wisconsin to my knowledge is not one of them where you can actually have your car confiscated. I know Minnesota is if you get too drunk driving arrests or three drunk, or whatever it is. They could actually confiscate your car, and then they resell it and obviously states love this. It's basically civil asset forfeiture is is what the term is. They love this because they can they can fund government operations through confiscated property. And usually the states will make the argument that well, it's drug money that we're taking well, wait a sec at unless there is a remedy for which you have due process where you can fight and say, no my. Car shouldn't be seized what this guy just thinks. I'm a repeat drunk driver. So therefore, I get my car take it away. That's an excellent analogy. Christian and cars don't have the added protection of the second amendment. I know there are second amendment opponents who don't like this idea, but guns weaponry, the ability to defend oneself and one's family. Wants home. One's person is enshrined in the constitution. So there are three different amendments that this law is potentially violating. If it's enacted here in Wisconsin. That said I do not believe that this would ever go anywhere under a Republican legislature. But let's say in twenty twenty miracle of miracles. There's a democratic blue soon. Nami not just a Blue Wave. You've got a democratic gov- democratic attorney general and democratic state legislature. I absolutely could see this happening here in Wisconsin. Although in the immediate future, it's not too likely. Tim in Genesee, you're up. Next. God help us all not just not just on the prospect of red flag laws. I was actually thinking of that myself, Tim. Oh my goodness. Could you imagine? If the state went totally blue. Well, I was on hold. I have two thoughts about what you're talking about. Number one. Every play that listen to the station knows that what happened in parkland high school in Florida. Could be traced back to the. Previous administration and Justice department policy of the school district didn't want to. Take any actually write the black student because the idea the idea here was and I reported on this extensively with respect to violence in Milwaukee public schools against students in especially against teachers. There was a directive coming from the Obama education department and Obama department of Justice saying essentially, get your suspension rates down, especially amongst minority students, however possible. The second thought goes. Madison used his father's shotgun. Not his shotgun. This for those who are unaware. This is the Jamie Kloss suspect to keep going. Yes. And it was easily the theater shooting or part or sandy hook where the perpetrator user mother's weapon. That was sandy hook. Okay. How do you stop that? I guess. No, certainly not with a red flag law on my question to the screener was this. This is a state law. Assuming Florida has a whole bunch of snowbirds. Sure, let's say they confessed to Kate someone gone and it's summertime now. They're going to leave the state to.

"broward school" Discussed on 860AM The Answer

"Massacre. Seventeen people. The parkland Florida school Marjory stoneman Douglas high school, right? How could you not remember? And it's such a horrible horrible event. Well, there is a state commission that investigated it Florida state commission to four hundred fifty eight page report by the Marjory stoneman Douglas high school public safety commission. The title of the group. Pinellas county sheriff Bob Gualtieri, chairman of the commission. Said many recommendations could have been implemented a long time ago had school safety been treated with the importance of deserve particularly by school district. There's a book out or coming out yet to be published by max Eden. Soon as it is out. I will have him on for an hour. You will you will buy only worries you will get so angry at the Florida liberals who made it impossible to stop. What everybody knew would be a murderer. He said he wanted to murder students. The murderer. He would bring in videos of him of his torturing his animals like a cat. But nothing nothing was done. Because liberals run school district. And whereas the the left. Produces evil ideas. Liberals go along with them. With few exceptions like Alan Dershowitz, David Ruben. Well theory spoke forcefully in favor of the Commission's proposal. I I almost fell off my chair when I read this the commission actually proposed arming teachers. He spoke forcefully. This is from the south Florida sun sentinel. Gualtieri if the sheriff of the county spoke forcefully in favor of the Commission's proposal to arm teachers, noting that the shooter had paused five times to reload providing opportunities to stop him. So what are we saying to people? We're not going to allow you to defend yourself or not allow you. We're not going to allow you to defend the kids. Why? Because of some ideology that we don't like guns. Anyone who thinks they're going to get rid of guns is crazy? He said God, it's amazing guys in south Florida. Florida's is politically. Foolish as Santa Monica or San Francisco or Manhattan. It isn't going to happen. We've got to do something differently and people should be able to protect themselves. Broward school board member. And this is this is this is the priceless. Part of this story. The liberals these are not necessarily leftists these liberal. Who don't agree listen to their arguments? Then not even arguments their statements of emotional. Fact reason. Feeling. Broward school board member Robin bar Holman said she doubts the board will support allowing teachers to carry guns. But thought the board should revisit the issue. I am very concerned about arming. Teachers Barnum and said, I think it's a discussion we need to have with the community. I have not found many people in favor of this the overwhelming response. I get is people don't want teachers with guns. Why not? See the liberal and left minds is not ask. What works. They ask. What feels right? Board member Laurie Al f. Whose daughter Alicia was killed. I should say murdered. But okay. Murdered at stoneman. Douglas, also opposes the idea. Listen to her reasoning. This is really deep. Teachers went to school to teach that is their expertise law enforcement. Their expertise is supposed to be to engage a threat. Unfortunately that didn't happen on to fourteen. But I still think we should leave it in the hands of law enforcement law enforcement arrives. After the after people like her daughter are horrifically and tragically dead. Or terribly wounded. The trick is to stop not catch. The murderer. Stop the murderer. You stock a murderer with a gun. By arming decent people with guns when the bad are better armed than the good bad wins. Why is that not obvious? All right. Relief factor. One of the great product. I have ever advertised. Carry it with me anywhere in the world. The only pain reliever I have ever endorsed because I know it works. I don't think it works. I haven't heard it works. I know it works. With everybody that I know. However, I love leveling with you.
