"How would you respond about this deal percolating up. That wonder Young's going to step down on condition. His wife is appointed to a seat I can share with you that council members see. So Thomas Took that action. And it didn't work out will So it would be self bill dealing and again, it would be very problematic for something like that to happen is that legal? It would be legal for him to do that. Yes, he could legally do that. It happened. It happened in our history with council member former Council member Sea Salt, but but she still Thomas stepped down. He wasn't he wasn't indicted. I mean, Cecil Thomas is not been charged in his whole life with any crime. I'm aware of, And so this is different. But the issue here is that the appointment doesn't come through window. It would come through window Young council member Young. It would come through council member Phil Box, but he's making a deal deal he's saying, Look. He'll step down on condition you appoint Mrs Window Young to the sea. It's like what the hell? I don't think that's going to happen when I think what I think is going to happen is I think that the Ohio Supreme Court is going to suspend or council member Young is going to resign, and I think it's important for us to talk. Just a hair a hair about that That council member Young today could just resign. Sure, he considered andare from now before Reds baseball, he could say, Look, I've had enough. I've been through a lot. He's got a 25 year career with CPD Been on council, I guess about 10 years or so. And obviously he can't run again in November. He's out of office anyway. In December, he's got six months. No matter what else happens, he's gone. And it would give Mrs one too young a leg up. There's so many openings. Maybe they're thinking she could take the seat and run with it. Kind of. I don't I don't think that that will be the deal for the young family. I really don't wanna bet me a hot fudge sundae. Yeah, I'll bet you a hot but Sunday taking I'll tell you I think was going to happen is before. I don't think the council member Young is going to resign, but if he did resign Those Democrats that are on social media right who are screaming that this is partisan? If, if council member young with a resigned council members? Still, Bach would have sole appointment power. But that would mean that council member Young would not get his income and would not have access to health care. We're already paying for council member Jeffrey Pastor. We're already paying for council member P G. Sittenfeld, and now we will be paying for council member Young. That means that we will be paying for 12 members of Council where the taxpayers say we're only supposed to be paying for nine Willie and then and on top of that, like he to Cole. I think she worked with PG sitting film she was indicted for. Ah, harboring a felon. Then you got this other this prey through woman I never met. She's under indictment for making false P p p claims. So you look a city council. Yeah. P G. Sittenfeld to Maya Denard. Jeff Pastor, Wendell Young Lik E to Cole pray for another's It looks like there's a hole it looks like you need a work release program on City Council. It has not been the best year for the elected officials at City Hall, and that's really what made yesterday's vote. So important, and I want to thank council member Gooden yesterday for abstaining also meaning and the extension means we're not participating. There's something wrong that's happening here. We're concerned about this. And so you're saying and it failed and council member Gooden If you remember recall this Happens to be my lawyer when the gang of five sued me while Pamela was dying, and so they attempted to implicate me in this and council member. Gooden is very familiar with this case. He also obtained yesterday and I appreciate his abstention and it really shows that we're trying doing our very best to restore trust at City Hall. We can't do it, though, with council member still box and Council member Landsman Saying, Hey, way won't even we won't even because of the appearance of a conflict. We won't walk out of the room. We're going to continue to vote as if there's nothing wrong here. The elephant in the room here is that the members of the Gang of five Which council member Young was a part of that they should not be their voting to remove him from council period now, and I'm saying again, this investigation is ongoing and it's not over. And we'll see what happens down the road. Let's give a big happy birthday to Elmer Hensler. He's a friend of ours. He'll be 91 on Friday is my understanding. And if you guys decide to go out to dinner Maybe give me a jingle, but he's a great man, a great American and what he's done down a Queen City sausages just remarkable, and we just lift him up as a great American. Chris, if you take Elmer Throwing Buddy LaRosa throw in Robert Linder, who just turned 100, then Olga. Iran's about those four. Collectively, the like 400 years old. They got chicken. They got pizza. They got sausage. And they got ice cream. They got it all. And to tell you what those four horsemen of the apocalypse will never come again And on one sad thing is that Ron Larkin at At his chicken. Joining his fabulous doesn't want to give his mother a race. Poor Olga, tell I was out there to have have lunch and August telling me she's making like $8.50 an hour and she's asking Ron Of Ron's Roost.

But Christopher give my best everyone that the work release program and City Council work release Right. Well, see, this is really my thing. This is unbelievable.

"Visitors from states in orange are still required to do all those things. Last summer chicago saw massive protests after the killing of george floyd including some with violence property damage and theft chicago police city officials and local businesses have been preparing for the verdict in the trial of former officer. Derek chauvin with the mayor saying police were ready to ensure the right to peaceful protests and to stop any criminal activity. A man of nikki joins us now from daley plaza. Amanda what do you see out there. Terrorist right now. I'm pretty much alone at plaza. Even the once plentiful pigeons appear to have flown away and left but up until about an hour ago. There was an event taking place just behind me with people carrying posters saying things like jail killer cops now and stop cop terror also briefly chanting justice for george floyd that was by the way briefly drowned out by the sound of helicopters overhead. It was a fairly small turn out a couple of dozen participants with one demonstrator. Calling it both a protest and celebration derek. Chauvin would not have been found guilty if not for the mass protests that that have occurred throughout the year if not for the mass mobilisations on people taking the streets. We would not see any semblance of justice. And so that's why it's important for all of us to be out here in the streets being organized because they won't actually create that sense of justice without a demand and more demands more mobilizations on the way she expects including hoping for turnout in some capacity. Tomorrow that's when the chicago city council will meet in person. For the first time as activists who were present at the event tonight are pressing for chicago alderman to adopt an ordinance giving civilians oversight of the chicago police department now mere lori lightfoot had been prepared for much more mass demonstrations in a much more massive scale something along the lines of what chicago saw last year when there were some peaceful protest but also a lot of looting. She wasn't the only one preparing for this driving around downtown. Saw some buildings boarded up. Some may also be because of covid vacancies but across the way. See a bank that right now appears to be embracing the calm expecting no other major activity anytime soon. Taking down plywood that one can only imagine was just put up for reason of waiting. This verdicts now. Also at the mayor's request governor pritzker had sent one hundred twenty five national guard members to be in chicago on standby mayor had said that officers were given refresher course trainings on first amendment rights and that they'd otherwise ben preparing for demonstrations don't test us. Don't test us. We hold on one sec. Let me just finish. We are ready. We are prepared and we are ready to arrest and bring the prosecution. Anyone who would dare try to take the dreams of our small businesses by looted. Don't test us because we are ready. Now some aldermen and activists did take umbrage with that remark aldermen. Carlos ramirez rosa saying that the national guard cannot bring peace. Only justice can bring peace since the verdicts mayor. Lightfoot releasing a statement praising the chauvin decision today marks a moment where future generations can look back and see that we as a nation came together and rightfully demanded justice and accountability and justice was served. Governor chafee pritzker also reacting to the decision saying my heart goes out to the family of george floyd who deserve to have him alive today. I'm also thinking of all our black communities and other communities of color who say their children or their parents were themselves in. George floyd and dante right and toledo and brianna taylor and macron mcdonald. Now all of those names have been hallmarks of protests in chicago. George floyd especially his nameless share his face everywhere during massive demonstrations as were some of his final words. I can't freeze now others here. Echoing what my again had said earlier that that conviction today of derek chauvin would not have happened. Were it not for the widespread backlash against police brutality. Now another of those large scale protests calls for change. George floyd murder was a flashpoint in illinois in chicago leading to a handful of new laws. That were backed by black. Legislators and most prominently that includes a massive criminal justice. Bill that is now law. You had of course. The chauvin trial rolling heavily on both video from bystanders but also from the body cameras of police themselves. This new illinois law requires all law enforcement in the state of illinois to have into use body cameras by the year. Twenty twenty five also includes provisions that such as requiring that deaths in police custody beat reported and tracked use of force training and it does also set protocols. Four crowd control and more so activists at tonight's gathering. Say yes this is all a start. Claiming victory with the thrice guilty verdict now facing jer derek. Chauvin but they also say again that they want more accountability pointing out their frustrations their anger with adam toledo the death of adam toledo the thirteen year old at the hands of chicago police officer even as the chauvin trial was taking place paris. Back to you and amanda. We're gonna talk to alderman in just a bit about some of those police reform proposals and that meeting tomorrow in person. Italy watch closely all right. Thanks very much. And now we turn to phil ponce for more on. Today's verdict phil peres has mentioned earlier former. Minneapolis police officer derek. Chauvin was found guilty on all three counts we the jury in the above and titled matter as to count one unintentional second degree murder while committing a felony. Find the defendant guilty verdict. Count two we the jury in the above and matter as count to third degree murder perpetrating. An eminently dangerous act. find the defendant.

"The Chicago City Council voted this week to designate the childhood home of Emmett Till a City landmark. The teenager's murder in Mississippi was a tragic and seminal moment in the civil rights movement in the 19 fifties. From member station W be easy in Chicago, Claudia Morel reports. Emmett till lived with his mom and a nondescript red brick to flat Holm in Chicago's Woodlawn neighborhood on the South side. The summer of 1955. He took a train down to Mississippi to visit his uncle, and for two weeks he spent his days picking cotton with his cousin. But one morning, two armed white men kidnapped till one falsely claiming that the 14 year old had whistled at his wife. Three days would pass before Till's body was found.

That's Alderman Jeanette Taylor, speaking just after the City Council here voted to make the House a landmark. We still have a real problem in this country, not addressing the brutality that has happened to black folks, but also making sure we apologize and recognize it. We will repeat history if we don't address it. These are the hard conversations that were not willing to have, which is why in this country we can't move forward. Naomi Davis is a local artist and neighborhood activists who helped lead the effort to designate the House. She says. The brutality of till's murder overshadows what she thinks is another significant part of the Emmett Till story. The great migration, the movement of millions of black men and women who fled the Jim Crow south to northern cities. We don't make a lot Of the brilliance of black people and the need for a true and new narrative about blackness that we built cities. I mean, we came here.

How Police Misconduct Affects Cities and Taxpayers Financially

"For months. Protests over the police involved killings of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and others reinvigorated an intense debate over policing. Then the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, announced the city would pay $12 million to Briana Taylor's family and institute. A number of police reforms that highlighted an aspect less discussed the financial impact of police misconduct on cities and taxpayers. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. City's Khun face hundreds of lawsuits every year, charging, among other things, that police used excessive or deadly force or made a false arrest. Many times. Details of settlements are hidden behind confidentiality agreements. Law professor Joanna Schwartz studies how jurisdictions budget and pay for police legal expenses, she says. Although payouts Khun Total in the millions more often there in the thousands of dollars range and with an important determining factor, the number of cases filed and the number of dollars that are paid to resolve cases. Depends very much on where in the country you live claims against Big City Police Department's cost taxpayers about $300 million last year. One of the arguments in the ongoing protests over policing is that money for police could be better spent elsewhere and the clash between protesters and police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Means Minneapolis and other cities could face a myriad of legal cost. In Chicago. Several groups work to resolve cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted. Two years ago, a federal jury awarded $17 million to Jack Rivera and was considered one of the largest police misconduct settlements in the city's history. I say that was kidnapped by the Chicago police, Roger Li. 55 years old. Now Rivera spent 21 years in prison for a murder. He did not commit framed, he says, by a now retired Chicago gang crimes. Detective Rivera is one of at least 20 who have been exonerated in cases where that detective lead the investigations. They set out to rob You convict me for whatever reasons why Rather, it was just a con the community that they got the perpetrator. Or whatever it may be. It's still not right because taxpayers have to pay for it. Victim's family have to relive this all over again what they think it's closed, and it's just painful for everybody. Over the past decade, Chicago has paid about a half billion dollars for police misconduct. Rivera attorney Locke Bowman is the head of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern Law School, he says in cases where misconduct is clear, said he's often continue to fight against the allegations for months, sometimes years, and that could mean a hefty price tag for taxpayers. The decision to settle a case like that early ends up saving money for attorney's fees. And can result in Ah lower settlement before everybody gets dug in, and the price of the case goes up insurance policies and local budgets usually pay for judgments and claims. Jurisdictions hurting for cash may borrow issuing bonds to spread out payment, add bank fees and interest to investors. And those cost pile up with taxpayer's footing. The bill for police misconduct and as covert 19 devastates budgets nationwide. That could be a more frequent scenario. Chicago City Council Finance Committee Chairman Scott Waguespack says the city is working to break that expensive pattern and concentrating on police reforms so that we're not just saying, Okay, here's another settlement and good job negotiating it and move on, but really look at the deep seated issues within the department to start rooting out those problems. Activists argue tying police misconduct cost to police budgets could help prevent police wrongdoing as well as making police officers especially repeat offenders financially accountable. Currently so called qualified immunity rules shield officers from those costs that's changed in Colorado State representative Leslie Hair. It was the force behind the state's decision to drop its qualified immunity provisions. A new law requires officers guilty of wrongdoing to pay up to $25,000 and that if they were found to have acted in bad faith, violating someone's right, possibly ending in death. That they actually had to be held person responsible, just like anyone else who violated their policies and their obligations at their work with the law also allows officers to purchase liability insurance. Other jurisdictions looking to reduce police related lawsuits may follow that hybrid model of splitting settlement costs between cities and individual officers that just as victims or the families of people injured or killed by police misconduct.

"Over a number of years, thirty nine billion dollars. This is this is in Chicago. City council proved two point four billion in tax subsidies for two major developments in early. April protesters gathered at city hall, Channing against the deals critics of the projects in prosperous parts of Chicago and developers should pay for infrastructure improvement, not taxpayers. Forbes reports the city cities, tax payers burden is attached to unfunded retirement, obligations. Amassed over number of years, Chicago now. Thirty nine billion in retirement. Funds have been promised twenty eight billion in pension and eight hundred forty two million in retiree and health care benefits, have not been funded while lower in debt, we're Los Angeles and Philadelphia again, Los Angeles combined tax payer burden fifty six thousand Philadelphia's fifty thousand but we've told even with the unfunded of mandates in the pensions. Oh, what do you call them here in the city of Dallas that it's causing them? Major problems. Right. Yep. And so we never got that topic. So wanted to bring that one up other pulling out there that wanted to bring your way. The CBS news poll on trade and tariffs with China. Most Americans applaud the goals, but express some wariness about the tactics at least in the short term more than six in ten Americans favor trying to get China to change its trade policies towards the US. This includes large majorities of Republicans eighty four percent independence, sixty seven percent. And Democrats forty six percent. By the way, if Trump was in president, I guaranteed Democrats would be seventy five percent. Democrats, you actually believe. The China is fair on trading. The majority of Democrats actually believe I don't buy that. Yeah. That's I say more than this. This is a Trump effect more than six and ten Americans favored, try to get China to change its trade policies towards the US eighty four percent of Republicans. Sixty seven percent of independence and forty six percent of Democrats, too. I believe would be way higher. And Democrats Trump was a democrat president, I guarantee it would be higher as to gauge the impact of new tariffs imposed by the US and China. Specifically more Americans for C. Short term pain for the US economy than see a short-term upside. Overall over the long term Americans are split on, whether they think new terrorist will ultimately lead to better trade deals between US and China. Most Americans are unwilling to pay while being patient. Two-thirds of Americans say, they'd be unwilling to pay more for goods impacted by any tariffs while the US tries to renegotiate trade deals, those earning less money are the least willing to see costs go up. Along partisan lines six and ten Republicans are willing to pay more, which sets them apart from most Democrats, and independents, most of whom are not willing. Most Americans believe free trade has generally been good for the US that includes a large majority of Democrats. A slim majority of Republicans and most independence. So there you go. Slim majority of Republicans believed that free trade has been good for the United States. By the way, as we said, this is, maybe that's why Trump is out there promoting and talking about terrorists because. That's what he believes a significant portion of his base wants, even though that's what is not in the trade deals. It's been an amazing week because I agree with the direction. They're going, I agree with what they've done stating the fact that they're going to be, you know, they're all they're very close to having a deal to get rid of the steel and, and aluminum tariffs, and that, there have delayed the decision on the European auto tariffs. But. It's, it's amazing. Because when you look at the free trade deal, what Trump is promising and implying that he is doing to his base is actually what is not in the trade deals. That's that's amazing. And we've stated that all we, we've stated that, for the longest time we stated that with the Mexican free trade deals. Normally if Republicans believe we are wrong. They will tell us it's been silent. There's been people recognize that well APL is even the most loyal Trump supporters. We've had two of them on the air in the last week. Who's, who's speaking out if you think about the terrorist right now, who was that the that speaking out against the tariffs it really is? Industry. But if, if you're a populist, you're going to you're going to believe that protectionism care of are a good thing. You start seeing the negative effect of it and things change. But inevitably what happens? Well the Bush administration had steel tariffs bam. You go you go through these cycles where people go, we'll know it's a good thing. Pressure on China if it really brings about the change that is needed. Great as long as it's affected there. That is a very unique situation. It really is amazing, though, the number of, of Trump's supporters that, you know, that still believe that and we've to in the last week. That believed the Trump was doing one thing and were absolutely shocked to find out. He's doing the opposite. He's promoting is doing one thing and implying that, you know that because the tariffs are good and great. And we bring in all this money from China and China's having to pay for it. And people are cheering at the rallies, they believe that's the kind of trade deal. He's negotiating and it is not. It is Harris won't be in place forever. And if you're making the promise that based on the fact that you're promoting and saying that they're good thing. Look, look at all the positive things that they're doing look at the, the Q one GDP is a result of it look at the money going into the treasury. And people are cheering. Those people are expecting those tears to remain in place. Right. Well, they because they expect because Trump is talking and relating the terrorist directly to the trade imbalance. Right. But none of these free trade deals, Mexico, Canada, what we're negotiating with trying to share with Europe and China. None of them are about protecting American markets in order to even out the trade surplus, none of them. And he seems to be selling that to his base some of who still are buying it. We know because we had two of those calls this week that were shocked to learn out learn that wasn't the case. And then said, well, we don't support the president on that and seemed to be upset. Like would guys, you know it's, it's what's happening? And I'm happy. It's going that way because I want much more. I'm not a protectionist. It doesn't work government government controlling the capital, whether it's in the form of, of tariffs and subsidies to control and manipulate an economy to what they feel. They can do has never worked. So I don't care who's trying to do it. If if I if I was doing it I'd be against it. Because it's impossible for government to manage a, a free economy. I don't care who it is. But it's I'm happy with the Trump administration is going, I just wonder why especially in the beginning of the week. They were selling one thing. The president was seem to be selling one thing, especially at the rally where people were sharing like wowed. You realize that's not really what is in the trade deal. You're sharing the negotiation but we found so many people believe that the negotiation tactic of tariffs is what the president is selling inside the trade deals to lower the trade deficit. And that is not what's going on, right? So we'll see where that all works out. Also, Bill bar will be on Fox News later today. The interview apparently already with a mill hammer and he's explaining some trying to get answers to the questions and I found that a lot of answers have been inadequate and some of the explanations, I've gotten don't hang together. The sense I have more questions today than when I first started, so the more questions, he or the more questions, he asked the more questions, he has, and that would probably be the case because can you imagine peeling back this, you know, you're, you're peeling off layers of this onion? As you go along. And it gets worse and worse and worse. It's exactly the way we've approached it over the last couple of years, where we have a ton of questions and the American people deserve the answers. Eight six six ninety redeye. With.

"Was arrested in his car because he apparently had reported it stolen, despite the fact that they have this odd relationship. And I think you know, the fact he lost that race to to one. And I think it surprised all of us. But I also think that that particular bit of scandal really resonated with people. Why would talk to just regular people people not to tune into politics? And there was something odd about it that everybody said, hey, what's the real story there, and it was one of those water cooler things, I think people just paid attention to it hurt. I feel like there's this in in politics right now. Especially democratic politics were seeing this sort of resurgence of of activism of progressivism, whatever you wanna call it. And certainly some of these automatic candidates embody that I know that especially when you're going up against, you know, the quote unquote, machine of Chicago, these candidates sort of like tout that the next mayor whoever she may be. The mayor the new mayor going to have to deal with maybe this this resurgence of progressive politics of of activism in the Chicago city council, which he can't always say about the Chicago city council rights more of a rubber stamp for the mayor than anything. Like, what do you think? Well, I think you're talking about two different issues here. I think there's the progressive movement within the Democratic Party across the country. As a response to President Trump. And so, yeah, you're seeing people on the left have much louder voices and much better chances of winning election, especially in heavily democratic district. Which of course, most of Chicago are most of the wars are heavily democratic and probably all the wars are heavily democrat, right? Yeah. Exactly. Although there isn't really a strong Republican presence infrastructure. There's no organization here. So it's really hard to say there are democratic candidates here that are probably more fairly conservative and other parts of the country would run as Republicans. So there's the one issue of progressivism just being in right now, and a lot of centrist, Democrats, including Chicago are having to deal with challenges from the left. The other issue is what you're talking about with the insiders, and this is definitely an election cycle in Chicago where everybody wants to be a progressive the word a few years ago when rich daily was mayor and the feds sniffing around city hall two thousand five thousand six two thousand seven election. Everybody wanted to be a reformer. Now, the buzzword is progressive. So both of the mayoral candidates who are left for the runoff. You're gonna see try to out progressive each other. Scott. What do you think about that? Yeah. I think that's right. We're also seeing it nationally. You know, you're looking at the early stages of the presidential campaign, the democratic primary in you're seeing the voters are the candidates embraced those types of voters in those types of policies. Like a Bloomberg said he wasn't going to run for president..

"Azoic was changed. And so at least just resigned as the chairman of the zoning committee right over there, just blocks away the change was approved. But the hotel was never built in Chinatown. The speaker is not facing any criminal charges denies any wrongdoing. Course Burke, like Madigan also runs a property tax appeals business, and this confluence of raw political power and the ability to change policy it it's a stemming in our state, not only from the Chicago city council, but the county cook and now, of course, downstate in Springfield as well. Madigan's law. Practice is just one element of the speakers undue influence. He has a longest serving state Democratic Party chairman in Illinois history. He is the only state legislative leader in the nation. That also serves as a party chairman on January twenty eighth yesterday. The house rules committee made a couple of changes, they give a speaker Madison more procedural power than any other house speaker in the nation, for example, he has power to kill the bills because if he sends it to the rules committee, that's her bills go to die, and guess who picks the the majority of rules committee members the speaker of the house. So that's what we're looking at today and every every page of the sun times this morning, I was having breakfast and have the same thing everyday. Like like, Jack Nicholson in that movie as good as it gets at a sort of the same thing and sit in the same place and have the same every single day. But I was reading I was turning the page, and I get done with the burqa article. And I turn while madigan's caught.

"Ormes they were witnessing many of them found it sad to be going through this experience in a committee that has historically been bipartisan and cooperative it was sad and shocking and you can feel that sadness coming right alive out of the pages of that transcript cars from quigley put it this way during the meeting i respect you all i don't respect this process of what you were doing and i'm from chicago and you know the reputation i have lived with most of my life working first as a staff person for the chicago city council i saw the worst of the worst they got nothing on you on this one folks this is extraordinary joining us now democratic cars from michael quigley who serves on the house intelligence committee cars from quigley there were so many stunning things that we learned by by reading this transcript but the point that you were trying to get at from chairman nunez of war is there any white house involvement in the preparation of this memo did you feel as though you got an answer to that i think i found out what i suspected all along that chairman unions and the white house concocted this idea they did it before if you recall the midnight ride of chairman unions to the white house to get in to brief the president on information turns out he got that information from the white house so uh the hypocrisy reigns the fact is if you were in the room and listen to the mannerisms and the the exact tone of the chairman when i ask those questions he would not have believed them when he said he didn't recall and obviously when i pressed him in asked if his staff had worked with the white house on this memo he refused to answer and and i felt obliged to he said he wasn't asking going to answer questions from members and i just asked if that was any questions rudest questions he didn't like so i guess i just had it this has been a year which the chairman has been an agent of the white house besides the ride people should know he's refused to sign subpoenas he's gone.
