"Don Right now, now we're gonna be live at 5 30 so you don't go anywhere and we'll be on all the way till 10. Thanks for tuning in. You are listening to the best of Todd and don on news Radio K O B. J. Austin police chief Brian Manly. Is announcing his retirement. The police chief will step down next month after a little more than 30 years with the department said in the midst of Ah, you know some policing crossroads if you will and across the nation. Manley's announcement, which was set for this morning, comes after he marked three decades with the department February the first Ah goal he said he wanted to reach before leaving. His decision also comes after some ongoing scrutiny of Manly and the department and an aftermath of some controversial incidents. That's according to Wa K Xia News, But I just got Ah, message here from the Greater Austin Crime Commission. Yeah, the Greater Austin Crime Commission. Here's what they say about Chief Manley and his retirement, The Greater Austin Crime Commission and a Grateful community. Thank chief Brian Manly for 30 years of dedicated service. He has led the Austin Police Department with character and integrity during difficult moments of our community, like every first responder family Chief Manley's wife, Tina, and Children have shared in the sacrifice of the past three decades. They deserve our appreciation, as well as she family champion efforts to expand community policing and confronted the public safety challenges of a growing city. The Austin Police Department is a better organization because of his humble and effective leadership. The Greater Austin Crime Commission is proud to support as a proud supporter of the Austin police Department. And we wish Chief Manly the very best as he enjoys. Ah, well earned return. Garment and pursues his next professional opportunities. Well, he used to work for HB, You know, so he might be going back to H E B. Maybe they left the door open for him. They're sure that what kind of work record he had back then. Clearly he was a store employee. There. He I think has done that job with with the most integrity of any police chief that we've ever had in my memory, That's for sure. And I think it's it's a big loss that a p D at the same time. This has been the even though I don't blame him for wanting out now. A Zafar is his lack of support that he gets from his own City Council and Mayor. Asai understand that's been the plan for a long time for him to go ahead and return. I don't think there's anything that's pushing him out the door. I don't think the controversy of the hardships of a job or are pushing him out the door. I mean, he understands. The job of a police chief. Yeah, I think it's just after 30 years he's done. Well, simple. Is that congratulating he has served this community. Well, I wish that we had been able to have him as our chief. For longer than we have. But I think he's done a tremendous job. Not perfect. No, but no police chief can do a perfect job in that business because it Z not a pretty business sometimes, and it's it's but he I think his whatever he has done. It's been done with integrity, that's for sure. In my opinion, how do you find another police chief? Just as you get a city council. That's de funding that. Yeah, that show did just as you got a D A. That's on a mission to get every cop in front of a grand jury. Very good question. Very good warehouse. Maybe this maybe it. We may have an acting chief for for quite a while. Exactly right. I would think that our city is big enough for a nationwide search. But who would want that job? There may be people currently in the department that wanted you. Would you want to come to city that Z not going to support you as far as the city government and and wants to defund your department? Anybody interested? While every every Anybody interested? Just about every city in America is dealing with those evil. I know. I know, but least big cities. Well, this will be interesting to see how this this search goes. It'll be interesting to see one how long it takes and what Greg Hussars says the requirements are right. Greg will set the stage on this one. Well, I'm really sorry to see Chief male ego at the same time. I don't know. I understand what you're saying. I mean, he's been a good chief. I think I think the rank and file support him. I think I've never heard any anything different, but I'm glad he's retiring. I really am because he's put in 30 years of a happy for congratulations. This is ah, true milestone in his life for his family about his family's happy I'm very happy. I'm happy that he I'm happy that he was able to have a lengthy career successful career and leave on his own terms. I am we should we should all wish for that I I wish that he was retiring from From a, uh a job where city government had really supported him better. I wish I wish he had had that. But you know that it is what it is. And I'm happy that He's had such an amazing career. Well, I would think that the well, the first thing we gotta do is we got to send some sort of commission to California to find a new police chief, right? Like yourself. That's right. I mean, that's what you do. That's where you start absolutely work your way or you want. You're listening to the best of Todd and don on NewsRadio. K O B.

That's 5128360590 just some of the things we are talking about here today. We are talking about the tweet out by Governor Abbott and says, Just in time for Christmas, the Legislative Council has sent draft language for proposed law that would transfer control of the Austin Police Department to the Texas Department of Public Safety Now As in Austin. I do You think this will happen? Do you think This is necessary. Or do you think this is just? I don't know. Maybe even some trolling by Governor Abbott. I heard a You know Mary Adler there in the last clip there during the news. And I don't know. I think it's more just to kind of Ah, around some people. Look, I can't see the DPS coming in here and I'd really like to hear what Chief Manley would have to say about that. If it was something happened, But we are talking about that. We are talking about the stimulus. That just got approved yesterday. So you could expect your $600 checks. I heard maybe within a week or so. So we'll see how that pans out. I love to hear your thoughts on that isn't enough. Will it help the economy? Are you excited about it? Do you think it's a huge waste too much waste in that In general, this story? Of course, coming here in Austin. This is Austin. Travis County extends protections related to tenants and issuances of notices to vacate Austin marry Steve Adler announced an extension to his order related to tenant. And notices to vacate as part of continued relief during the covert 19 pandemic. The update orders effective immediately extended through February. 1st 2021 Now I Myself am kind of for this when I when I see the people that are struggling out there, and I know people are gonna skeptical when it comes to adding 300 to the unemployment for the next few months, But there's a lot of people that aren't just, you know, struggling. They were struggling before the pandemic, and then this took over and now we're behind on things and have to catch up on it that I think this is something that is actually going to help similar to the previous extension. The updated orders Include the circumstances when a landlord is prohibited from issuing a notice to vacate to residential and commercial evictions on December 17 2020 Travis County Judge Andy Brown issued county judge order number 2020 22 relating to notices to vacate and eviction proceedings in response to covert 19. This order extends Prohibition of addictions proceedings until February, Um Now, I'd like to hear from some people 5128360590. If this is something that we should continue. How what is the world Look like after this Does this help people? In the long run. And also some of you If you've had experience where the landlord said, why can't evict you? Because of the moratorium on evictions, However, I can file this lawsuit against you.

"16 Times, Jeffries and don Prior. Nice to meet you. Yeah, Glad you're here. Welcome aboard and thank you. And you could jump in at 51283605 90 of this goes Yes. So the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that would be the Oscars, right? Yeah. Well, they've announced they've got a new set of inclusion requirements for films to be considered for best picture following years of backlash over a lack of diversity among the nominees. The new criteria for the Oscars will involve both on and behind the scenes diversity standards, starting in 2024. Wow. Yeah, the new guidelines for the Academy Awards are meant to promote equitable presentation. Of the global population on film considering gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity and disability. Well, did you see the last Star Wars? I did not? Ah, yeah, yeah. My brother Dane told me that and I was get your reaction, He said that type of inclusion right? There's forest diversity goes in. Every aspect was so Apparent in that movie and so blatant Did you experience to say again? I haven't seen it. I'm just curious. I didn't notice. Yeah, but I'm not looking just the way you know it looked like a Benetton commercial. Well, you, apparently so apparently, it's not a problem, Is it? I mean, it was. It was a great well appear on the Internet. It's a great movie. It's a great movie. That's all I can apparently was just glaring. It was so obvious. You know, just that kind of diversity of the Oscars of Diversity Academy is not saying you've got to do this, but if they're just saying That's what we're going to consider when we picked best picture. What does that have to do? These are the very same liberal left coast elitist Hollywood's They've been funding and screaming and shaming Everybody in America, saying You need to be more diverse. And now in 2020. There now catching up with the rest of the world well, and much of hypocrites. They are hypocrites, and it's so shallow because now it just it's obvious that it's just for this diversity for the sake of diversity period over art. That's that diversity will be first priority, and then we'll get to that art thing here in a minute and quality thing here in a minute, But first we've got to make sure things are diverse. So it's unfortunate because it's just it's very hollow and very superficial. And You know, but I'm not surprised at all. Of course, everything everything going forward. That has to be a consideration. Of course. I'm a fan of diversity of court. But I don't like it for the wrong reasons. I don't like it. I like it based on you know, on Merritt vs, Gotta have it got to check that box. And, you know, maybe it'll even be a quality thing. Who knows? But it doesn't matter. Just songs. We have it. Hey, plagued by controversy surrounding the handling A black lives matter. Protest The Dallas police chief has has resigned. Chief Rain A hall, the first black woman in history to head that department handed over the letter of resignation yesterday. Pile's decision to step down comes after members of the Dallas City Council condemned her leadership skills during the protest, which led to $5 million in property damage. Her announcement comes just after Rochester, New York police chief announced his retirement Dallas Fort Worth police chief as well in the wake of the you know, the one of the new Rochester was due to a Daniel proves death. Which occurred while he was in police custody back in March. So, man, that's amazing. It is that you've got so many big city police chiefs just moving on down the road jumping ship, man, Devon ship? Yeah, just like I'm out. I'll be honest with you. I'm surprised Chief Manly hasn't you know, considering the pressure that this city council is put on him? I mean, they have they have come out and said Resign. My impression of Chief Manley is that that that this is a job that he obviously takes very, very seriously that he worked for many, many years to rise to any did he came through the ranks and he wouldn't make that kind of decision. Ah, he wouldn't take that kind of decision lightly agree, And to me, it's never felt like there were any political aspirations for him whatsoever. It's my impression. Was that he simply wanted to be the best police chief. He could be. So I truly believe that's what he feels really does believe his heart's in the right place. I never felt like this was some kind of gateway for him, you know to to, you know, run for some political office. That it was just about the job itself, and I think he's going to probably try to do, you know, See that through long as it's possible. I have not talked to him. We've never had this conversation. But I kind of think of. Ah, if we didn't have all this controversy in the news, you know all this. You know, the political news and politics and policing. He probably would've retired this year or the year before. Well, but I think he cares so much about this community. Yeah, born and raised. Yeah, I think he cares so much. He feels obligated that he has to stay. Well, this is his home that they don't leave your home. That's that's right. That's right. That's the exact feeling I get is well and I've been a big fan from day one. I know he's not perfect. And I don't think there is a perfect police chief out there. But hey, comes damn close in my book. Yes. He's doing what he can. He's doing what he can with not enough support. It's hard, juggle, you know what I mean? With the politics involved seriously, I really is. I every day you're walking in a in a field of land mines. If you didn't just totally live and believe in that job and and just really do it for all the right reasons. You know, I wouldn't blame anybody for just so, man. No, no, no, thank you. No, thank you. I've done I've done place giving my pension. Yeah, police. Now I got you Give me a check. I hear when I I'll be out of here It is 9 22 here on the tide of Don show.

A County Department of Health said it could be very difficult to maintain proper social distancing on porches and at front doors, especially in neighborhoods that are popular for trick or treating is gonna happen here in Austin to there's no doubt about it. I mean, come on. It's ridiculous that can't I mean, listen, I want it to happen, and it should happen. But the fact is, there's no way we're going to get around this thing not being banned or whatever it's going to be. How can you? How can you go to a Longhorn football game and ban? Trick or treating. How come how come kids can't knock on the door well and stick their hand in a bucket because kids are kids, and they are going to be a little packs, and they're going to be all over each other mommies and daddies with him there come on their own.

This is ridiculous. I can't I can't imagine that It's going to be Allowed to happen now how you enforce that? I don't know, but but I doubt they're going to arrest kids. We could think of something.

That just makes me scared. Witless in the city of Boston police you, Brian Manly Friday outlined some of the details and over the weekend. How he's moving officers around, you know to make way for these cuts that the City Council made a few weeks ago, and council member Kathy Toshi spot spoke with Box seven news. Our community is safe, it will continue to be safe. And it will. We are as a council committed to safety. For all I know, our police department is a swell plan that Chief Manley has Drafted is is just that. It's a draft for puzzle. There you go. That's Kathy Toe bone. I'll be honest with you looking at her In this video, she looks like a deer. With her light her eyes in the headlights here in the headlines just Just kind of just kind of drifted.

"90. Now here are Todd and done. Good morning. Todd Jeffries Don Prior added together. It's the tide of Don show. We've got the rush update straight ahead and you heard they're in Patrick's news. The Austin Human Rights Commission is demanding that citizens be able to choose their police chief commission member dated whites who has publicly called for the You know the full dismantling, you know of the Austin Police Department. It says public pressure should be applied to a P D to force out chief Manly and have him replaced with someone voted in by the public. So there you go. This is something that the Austin Human Rights Commission is pushing the Austin City Council towards I would think that would require a I mean, that's not something you could do immediately. But those are the demands of the activists that are currently on the human rights commission here in Austin. Well, this should not be a political position. We vote for the sheriff and that that shouldn't be happening. Because how many of us really know what exactly quote what qualifications we really need and Ah, we need someone who comes up. Through the ranks who has plenty of experience. The only people who would know who would be best for that position would be a P D themselves. If you've got a police chief, there was an elected official, a politician. And they're going to make decisions based on politics. Absolutely right? Not what individuals or what communities need the most horrible. We've seen that happen with the election of Travis County D A s over the years where they refused to enforce certain laws. Yeah, And we're all guaranteed equal protection under the law. When you throw a politician in the seat, I don't know. I just have a problem with that. I don't think it's a good idea. Chic. Manley is a classic example of how this should work. He worked his way up through the ranks. He's been with him for years and years and years. They knew what they were dealing with. He's a known quantity. They know his experience. They know what he brings to the table. How the heck is the general public's going to know really everything they knew need to know about that. Candidate. I think police Chief Manley would probably I don't know this for sure. But this is just a gut feeling that he would probably like to just go ahead and retire after 30 years on the job. I wouldn't blame him and and I don't know that he's never told me that is just a just a gut feeling. But I have a feeling the reason he's still staying in offices because can you imagine what the search would be like for a new police chief in this climate in this election cycle? I mean every police chief that has any kind of qualification across the country. Would be so scrutinized. Why would they even want to apply for a job to run this police department where you got the city Council that's looking to dismantle exactly right? Yeah. What? What City Council but at least in Austin, you know, Human rights Commission. It's looking to dismantle and listen, if it comes down to that, if it's going to have to be someone, maybe we're going to be forced into having to elect somebody to do this and elect some kind of a politician. Because I don't know about. No, no cheap with any experience. No appreciable experience whatsoever is going to want to come to Austin Tax and baby. So so District six kids account. Remember Jimmy Flanagan, downtown Jimmy He doesn't feel that city manager Spencer Kronk is done enough to answer the calls of Social justice warriors out there. So this week, the council will discuss the future of Spencer Crocs employment. Bottom line is Jimmy Flanagan does not like Spencer Crock, so he's trying to get him out of there. Flanagan says. Change needs to happen now immediately without thoughts without, you know any kind of due process. Change just needs to happen now. What a knee jerk reaction. What an immature individual. He really. I think he is an immature. It's really immature demand. Those kind of changes in media is an amateur. Give me my cookies now. Yeah, He's got a big chip on his shoulder man. Well, Flanagan says that change needs to happen now, and he feels Kronk is acting as a barrier because ultimately he gets to choose Who leads the Austin Police Department. So there you go. That's you know, that's Spencer. Kronk is the man that wanted to cut 11 million from the budget and not the 1 50 that the City Council pushed It is 609 and time for the rush update for years, public health officials and other know it alls have told Americans to stop eating so much meat, they said. Even a lot of process and red meat was going to kill you. Heart disease cancer. A slew of other health problems, including some of us see in some Last Monday, A group of international researchers released a new scientific analysis of meat eating and according to The New York Times what they found represents a remarkable turnabout. The idea that people should eat less beef, less pork, less processed meat is not backed up by any credible science. In other words, it's bull. The scientist said that if there are any health benefits from eating less red meat, they're so small that they're barely measurable, a tiny blip that does not merit telling people to stop eating beef. Now, folks, how often have we been through this? We were told Coffee was bad force that bacon's going to kill us. Stay waiting. Coconut oil oat bran that stuff experts hammered the public on the latest scientific research turned out to be totally bogus. This turnabout on meat is not the first time it won't be the last one day I fully expect scientists tell us that cows and cow farts have nothing to do with climate change. Just eat what you live your life and ignore these busybodies who can't even live There is in the right way. Just do what you want and enjoy it. You only have one life, folks. Hiring could be challenging. But ZIP recruiter makes it fast and easy way. Talk to CEO Dylan Miska Wits who needed to hire a director of coffee for his company, Cafe Altera. We would look through lots of applications for people who were not qualified. It definitely felt like we were looking for.

"The Todd and don show on alive, and we want you to join us at five. 123605 90 Are Todd and done, right? I mean, I'm kind of worried about it. Really? Thiss morning. You see my kind of out of sorts. Kind of. I am little to shove it a little bit confused. I'm sitting here amazed it at me simply because I don't recall ever feeling this way about about my very own city. And of and fearing for the future and again, not showbusiness, not tryingto inside. Any reaction being completely honest, we not fearmongering. Anything like that. I don't do that. No, no, no, no, no, no. Absolutely not Your Ah, you know you're You're like you're like you're like you're like most people done, and I put myself in that category. We kind of don't pay attention to these kind of political things. And then all of a sudden it sneaks up on us, and you're in your city has changed right before your very eyes you But you've been basic goingto work paying your bills being a good citizen and all that stuff just trying to do it. While the progressive left they have hired agitators. Payed activist who on Lee have a dream of being a politician. You don't mean which is kind of a weird person. If you think about it, that's a power hungry kind of person. And that's what they're City Council is today. It's that kind of organization looking in that tweet from Gracchus are from from from from yesterday. We did it. Austin City Council. Just reduce a PDS budget by over 100 million. No by held a lot over 100 million greater than 52 million. Yeah, well, here's what police Jeep Brian Manley had to say last night. I want to In this community that if you call 911 our officers will respond. That is one thing I know is the hearts and minds of our police officers and they are committed to serve this community and I do not expect that to change and we will ensure that we do everything we can to have adequate resource is on patrol to address those calls for service. No doubt I agree within the minute women they're you know, they're going to respond. They're going to do the job, the best they can. And basically they're going to re organize a few things. But the chief says you're on the patrol out. There is the most important thing. Our patrol has always been our priority. Our ability to respond to 911 calls for service. And although we've been challenged over the past couple of years with response times, not meeting our goals, we will continue to strive towards meeting those goals and we will ensure that our patrol bureau is staffed accordingly. Even with these cuts, this will require us to move officers out of specialized assignments and units and potentially impact the operations there. But it's important for the community to understand that we will ensure that our patrol functions remain at full staffing at the levels that were at today so that we can ensure our ability to respond to those 911 311 calls for service. What's pretty interesting overnight? You kind of look at some of the reporters, local reporters TV newspaper. And you could see on their social media that the tone is that they've always kind of supported this agenda. You know what I mean? Because it was socially right with it was about social justice, re imagining things, you know that University of Texas theme What starts here changes the world change and reimagine Neil. That sort of thing re envision no diversity of thought at all. But I've noticed in the social media. Some of these reporter types of you know the various newspapers and TV stations and others. You could see it in their face. They supported these politicians. But now they're like, 000 They really did it, right. Oh, my goodness. Yeah. No, I didn't owe us a vato says this is going to be. Oh, gosh. What? What did we ask for? We know how biased media is now, however, there isn't that bias that showing up in the reporting of the story. It's Mauritz. More like Wow, this happened. This really happened and, Yeah, you're absolutely right. It's it's hit stunned everybody. Stunned and stung. Well, it does. It's pretty interesting. And last night chief Manley was was asked about this progressive and activist agenda, you know, trying to regain the trust of the community again. I think that our department has a history of advancing progressive policy and of outreach to the community and building relationships. I understand there's been some strain to those relationships. As of late. I'm well aware of concerns that have been expressed about my leadership. I have remained committed to moving this Police department forward in those ways that I think are appropriate. But I also think that it should be expected that a police chief would express their concerns based on their experience and really education in this area so that those that are making decisions for our community are making decisions that are at least informed. By their public safety leaders. So I have always seen my role as one of informing you in those decisions. But then of carrying out the decisions once they're made here you go Chief Manly overnight in one of those UMA interviews. I taught her. I can't remember. I can't remember in my life. I've lived here. I was born in 1960 in in Seaton Hospital. I've lived here every single day of my life. I don't remember to worst decisions, the repeal of the camping ordinance and then this to worst decisions in my lifetime in Austin. There's nothing I can think of that even comes close to this yellow, stupid stuff. A lot of wasted money, No doubt about it really dumb decisions, but not anything that were so reckless and destructive as these two decisions. Were. I think the city Council this mayor still have to sell this to the to the general public. The taxpayers of this city because 80% in a recent poll say they don't like this, In fact, an overwhelming majority and every CE district all 10 districts majority of folks don't want this. They didn't want this to happen at all. And and those aren't the people that that our city government cares about. Clearly, if you know why they don't care. Because not enough people vote. It's those loud agitators that show up at City Hall. The 2 300 people in that if some of the city Council votes, maybe not Austin, but some of these City Council votes around Austin You only.

"To partly sunny on human Tuesday at 92 from the Weather Center. I'm meteorologist John Feerick. And this is Kenny Romeyer with you in the news radio K LBJ Studios A P D chief Brian Manley is giving us an update right now about that. Shooting at a black lives matter protest in downtown Austin last night. Let's join that press conference with chief Manly in progress. Foster's rifle and this subject's handgun were also secured as evidence. Homicide detectives and crime scene specialist arrived to process the scene. Detectives are reviewing available video photos and witness statements to determine the precise actions of those involved. Our investigators consulted thru the night with the Travis County district attorney's office, and we will continue to coordinate this investigation with them. Both individuals have been released pending further investigation, and both individuals did possess a concealed handgun license. Travis County Medical Examiner's office will be conducting an autopsy to determine the official cause and manner of death. It is important that the community come forward and help us with this investigation. And as such are detectives are asking anyone with video or photos of this incident to call LAPD Homicide at 512974 T I p s Crimestoppers Anonymous tip line at 51247 to 8477 Or to use the new crime stoppers AT or email a p D. Homicide at homicide. AP at Austin, Texas dot gov. You may remain anonymous and you can also submit tips by downloading eighties mobile app on my iPhone and android. It is very important if you have video. If you have pictures if you have information That you come forward and provide that us so that that will be included in this ongoing investigation. I want to take a moment to highlight the actions of our officers last night. Yet again, the men and women of the Austin Police Department ran towards danger as soon as the shots were fired. Our officers were working their way through the crowd, finding the victim and providing lifesaving measures. Regardless of the incident, regardless of the crowd, are officers each day show up and they put their lives on the line, helping others and that's what happened last night. Regardless of the topic of the protests. Whether the protest is gear at these officers, whether they were earlier in the evening, taking insults from these individuals, these officers put all of that aside as they do every single day. And they ran towards the danger and helped this individual But unfortunately we were unable to save his life. And that is the work that the men and women of the Austin Police Department do. Day in and day out that so often goes unnoticed that I want to highlight this again because in these difficult times as we're all working to try and improve relationships, I do think it's important to highlight Great work with the men and women of AP. You're doing even under these very difficult circumstances they were present throughout the evening. They were actually following this march, and we're in a position as I said earlier, when the shots rang out to immediately respond. One of the difficulties is a new tactic that we've noticed. Some of the protest marches we're using is putting vehicles behind the marching protesters. To keep officers further back or to interfere with officers that may be trying to reach you crowd, although it didn't create a significant delay last night, when the shots rang out, and the People that was monitoring following the march tried to move up, Tio get involved. One of the vehicles that was trying to protest ended up blocking them and getting in the way for a brief moment and slow down their response. So again, our officers we're doing everything we can do to allow these protests to allow these marches to take place. And to do so, in a way that is a safest possible and let people exercise their right to free speech. But we need everyone involved to help us in this endeavor. This is the 28 in often this gear, an increase of well over 70% and the homicide rate this year aggravated assaults at 14% of our robbers have 16%. We are seeing a significant increase in violent crime this year. And this is very important as we engage in community conversations about policing in the future of policing that we ensure that we do keep in mind that one of the key functions of the police department is the safety of our community and combating violent crime. And even on our current staffing levels were facing significant challenges in this area. So again, we are heartbroken over the loss of Mr Foster last night. It is actively being investigated and ongoing in conjunction with the Travis County District attorney's office. That is the information that we have at this preliminary point in the investigation. And I'm going to open up for questions here in a moment, But as is typical, there's probably not a lot of additional information we could put out at this point. Since we are still only 24 hours into this investigation, roughly so with that I will open it up 20 questions. We are monitoring a press conference from a P D chief Brian Manly aboutthe shooting in downtown Austin last night protester was shot and killed. Let's go back to Chief Manly and see if we can pick up on any any questions that might come in. Okay. It appears there may be some technical glitches in any event, Kenny Romeyer with you and the Kale, BJ Studios. And it appears chief Manley's back on Let's dial back hander Chief Manly here. Breaking his vehicle. His account is that Mr Foster pointed the weapon directly at him, and he fired his handgun. That, Mr Foster, thank you. How many can you You're my please. Sorry. All right. Stand by, as we're trying to pick up on the checks, and I was wondering, Do you have a rough estimate of how many officers were on the ground last night? This monitoring the protest. That is information. We can get you on a follow up question, depending upon the night of the week and the events that we anticipate based on what we see on social media or that were made aware of, we adjust our scheduling for that. I do know. Last night we had a mounted control, which is a critical element in the Austin Police Department for crowd control endeavors, along with metro tactical teams and downtown officers that were monitoring these activities, But our special response team as well. Civic number follow up with you. This is Danny Davis, The Austin American Statesman. Is there any indication about what the car was doing in the first place? Was it trying to get around? Was it trying to drive into the.

"And welcome back. It's ten thirty two with Melinda and Kinney. We were talking about a to Austin officers that were fired yesterday by chief Manley, even after they were found not guilty and excessive force case. And it sounds like what Manley was saying was the reason for the firing is because he felt like they were dishonest maybe got together concocted a story. They weren't completely truthful in their rendition of what they filed in their police report that and then this part of the story from K A N says ABD ultimately decided the officers use of the taser was quote, inappropriate, unnecessary, objectively unreasonable and a violation of department policy. That sounds like you're checking a lot of the boxes on a tasers. Right. Everything that could do with taser you did it wrong. And that's why it's so dishonesty and that and so this thing is going to go to arbitration, according to the statement. From the attorneys. Karen in north Austin had thought on this story this morning. Hi, karen. You're on kale. DJ y'all. Yeah. I initially called in. Because can you said, you know, there's gotta be proof of contradiction. And now y'all are getting into. Yes, there is definite proof because the officers filed a report saying the the victim by whoever this guy was running away, and then tasers him actually their body Cam show that he was on his knees. Hands raised in the officer tasers him. So right off the bat. We have police officers that have filed in Romania report deliberately and never one. They're liars and number two that means that they're stupid because their body Cam unless they thought they could ditch the body Cam footage and the other point I have to make and I'm scratching my head over this y'all Melinda. You're kind of questioning about Manley's judgment about this. After all the jury. That's sad case highest civilian judgment. I think you said well Jerry's can get it wrong over history. We all know Jerry's can get it wrong. And I don't know this whole city or eighty percent of the city. I thought previously were praising Manley when we had the Austin bomber saying why in the heck does the city cancelled name him permanent chief we trust his judgment, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And so now, we have a situation it seems to me. Being an outsider Mary has stepped up to the plate. To fellow police officers and say, wait a second here guys. I don't care what a jury sick. You're not living up to standards that when he set right. And he's made the heart statement ES it's going to go to arbitration, which is too bad under that contract. Because really when you have a police cheap. You said you have violated internal policies you've why to us, and we have the evidence that you've lied to us. The officer should be out period paragraph. Well, if they have a union contract that allows for arbitration. Entitled to that. Right. Yeah. Unfortunately. Yes. And that brings me to the APD union. And I know that every time the, well, I shouldn't say, I know. But every time I hear the APD union president come on y'all station. He is lavished with praise as well. Wait a minute Karin. Okay. He's not here today. So I guess I'm a little curious just based on it sounds like you you have some level of familiarity with the story or some background with the police or even some bias here or you're disinterested. Citizen. That's weighing in. Is that it wait a minute. I don't have a bias. I saying that. Yes. I looked at the story. I have no affiliation. With the police. What I have is respect for police officers to do their job with honesty integrity. And that means that that tells me if a police chief says, wait a second the officers reports say one thing the bike Cam clearly contradicts the officers, and it's not just oh, they might have missed regulate. Detail. We're talking about saying somebody's running away from us. Okay. We got that. I wanna I want to jump in here. Because you said that I said chief Manley was in the wrong. I did not say that. And I wasn't questioning him. I was questioning why they have this video. If they have the statement if they have the evidence to prove these guys were lying. My question was was it presented to this jury. And if so why did they find them not guilty? I would have that's a question for the prosecutor's office. It not me because I was not part of it. I wish straightening outweighed. No, I seem to be critical of manly. Maybe that's the way. I should have. Phrased it sorry comes across that way. Because I have never been critical of chief Manley. Karen? Thank you. And I am questioning which I think we all shed, and I'm questioning even more so about how you can have this case go in front of a jury, and they decide there was nothing there that these officers weren't at fault, and then on the complete opposite in you have the command of APD sane. But yes, they are at fault in so much. So that we are going to fire them for. I think it's look we're all reacting to the information that we have which we've acknowledged several times in the first half hour limited. We don't have all the answers. And Karen, you even said yourself. Well, that's something. We've got asked a prosecutor, right? So we don't have that opportunity. And we're just as always when we're in the court of public opinion here were dealing with the information. We have some. Level of speculation. We try to be objective and offer our opinions based on what we know. Yeah. I don't think for any reason chief mainly would just say, oh, these two guys were up. I don't like them. I'm gonna fire them. I think he definitely has a reason why to do that. I am trying to connect the two. The disconnect there with a jury finding them not guilty. But command saying, well, yeah, we saw something that wasn't here. But let's move on from this. Okay. Because she wanted to talk about the the kid in Kentucky. So there's a teen in Kentucky. That is now suing the local health department because they barred students who weren't immunized against the chicken from chickenpox from attending school. And they even went as far as to cancel the extracurricular activities during this outbrea break, apparently they've had like thirty two people come down with chicken pox. And they said anyone that hasn't been vaccinated against it? We want you to sit out for whatever the time is Intel. It's okay for you to. Come back kind in the sense of. We're looking out for you. We don't want you to get the chicken pox, well dad's saying, it's the chicken pox, who cares? If he gets that he should be allowed to go to school and beyond that he's saying that they're being discriminated against because of their religious beliefs. That's the reason the the young boy hasn't had the vaccine right because of their religious beliefs. Yes, and Kentucky is a state that it's mandatory that you haven't vaccines. They do allow the religious waiver, which this father and son had filled out had filed with the school. And it's been fine for him to go to school. This hold Ryan. It's just that they had this outbreak where the kids were starting to come back with chicken pox. And I guess over concern of we just don't want your child to to get chicken pox. We are going to having not come in the kids. Biggest objection was they're cutting out me playing basketball 'cause they said I can't go to extra. As part of his senior year in basketball. Right. The five that I can't finish my senior basketball by the last couple of games is that's pretty devastating. I mean, you get through four years high school basketball lead you look forward to your senior year. And so you can understand that's a disappointment. Yes. That's not something. He can't get back. They say this is in direct response. They meaning the school. This is in direct response to a public health threat and was an appropriate and necessary response to prevent further spread of this contagious illness. But I have to wonder I mean, we're talking about the chicken pox here. I I kinda agree with the dad just a little bit. And that's I mean almost every person I know has had the chicken pox. I've had it. I'd had it twice a kid. And I it wasn't sucked at the time. Yeah. Itches or whatever. But it wasn't anything that just is like you need to be in this little bubble and never come out and experience the world. So I don't understand. The schools response so much as we we we still need to have school. We don't want all of our kids gone. Was that the case it does seem like a pretty hard line? And and I wondered too. Was this kid the only one that was affected? Maybe his parents are the only ones that are coming down on their religious discrimination angle on this thing. You just wonder where is anybody else in the situation? Don't know how big the high school is don't how many kids is it just by chance as just the one kid that got the parents that feel this way, and he's the one senior year basketball, and just you know, all these circumstances kind of the perfect storm here Dono. Yeah. It seems like maybe they could settle this without a lawsuit. I'm sure that's what they would like to do. Yeah. Well, five one eight three six zero five nine eight plenty of time for you to join us. You can give us a call or send us a text here on KLBJ. And I who knows may. Here's the other thing by the time that there is litigation on this. Well, the kids senior year best it's done anyway. So twenty one days or whatever it is. Yeah. Twenty one days after the onset will be over with. And but I guess if you're seeking money that will last pasture senior year, maybe help you go to college little more than a moral victory there. Right. Stay with us here on kale BJ..

"Well, not exactly it's Marc and Melinda. Minus the Mark at in the Kenny and a spring break. Okay. What we have here. We are data spring break with you. Thanks for hanging out. You're doing quite a bit of a marathon this week doing all your morning. So I appreciate you hanging out for just a one more hour. Thank you. I wanted to get into this story. The statesman came out with it late yesterday talking about two police officers Austin police officers that were fired yesterday. Even though they were found not guilty and their excessive force case. So the two officers were actually exonerated in December after they went on trial for charges of tampering with physical evidence tampering with government records assault official oppression abuse of official capacity both found not guilty. And then chief Manley announced yesterday that he. Went ahead and fired at both of these officers. Yeah. And this was around they used a taser. APD said that was inappropriate unnecessary objectively unreasonable and a violation of department policy. The department also believes the man to be guilty of several instances of dishonesty. Right. That's part of the story here. Yeah. In fact, a chief mainly said, listen, I feel like they coordinated a false story here. And that's part of the reason why that we went ahead and decided to fire them. It made me question one because it says that actually APD had extended the deadline to make the decision about whether or not they would keep the officers on. They kept extending it. Right. So it made me wonder do they have to let the process play out if they know. Okay. Charges are going to be brought against in. It's going to go in front of a grand jury. Do they have to let that process play out before they can make a determination on their employment or could they have gone? Okay. We're not binding of this. We're firing you immediately. Here's my guess. And maybe somebody out there in our audience knows more about this. My guess is to your point. Yeah, they've got to let the process play out. Maybe because of the union factory here. They they've got to. Let the whole thing be adjudicated. Before they make a determination. Now, if I don't know if it's circumstances that are so agree GIS that you know, they're not gonna let somebody stick around. Like, the the young lady that's on trial now up in Dallas. Right. She was let go from Dallas not immediately. But certainly well before the case is now gonna be mid August or so so they let her go. So I don't know if this is one of those situations where under these circumstances. I said, yeah, you're going to stay on the staff until everything's played out. And then we'll make our determination. And then we go from there. Well after the firing yesterday Justin berry who does work with the police union. He sent out a tweet that said, you know, these two officers were found not guilty by the citizens of Austin that is the highest civilian oversight. Anyone can have and they were exonerated. So they're firing is a sham and a statement released by the attorneys. I found this firm KFC a part of it says it appears APD command staff is either unable or unwilling to admit the series of mistakes that were made. And it's an investigation of these officers while we would have strongly preferred that APD do the right thing. And reinstate these officers today. We'll see to it that this occurs in the near future. After presenting the same evidence to an arbitrator. Well, I have to wonder after going through all of this with these officers even want to be back on the fours. I mean after going through all of this and the trial and being exonerated just to come back and be fired. Is that something that they're going? Yeah. Put me back in. I mean because there are a lot of people that that's just what they were made to do. They were made to be officers. And that's what they're going to be the happiest doing. So they may want to go back. But for me, I think I would be like. I go look somewhere else depending on their seniority. And where things are for them at this point in their life. It's hard to know. But you can join us five one two eight three six zero five ninety you can give us a call or send us a text. That's. That's a pretty powerful statement the parts you said about the civilian oversight. And that's really what they say the highest authority or something like that the highest civilian oversight that you could have. And they rated these two officers. So for chief mainly to come back and say, yeah, we don't feel like it was right? We're going to fire them. Slap in the face. I guess for them and the union it would seem an so I don't know how this works with the union negotiations, and what posture both sides are going to take a PD. You can prove that there was some level of dishonesty and the stories from these officers that they in any way got together and tried to cook up a story, or I'm just you know, these are. This is hypothetical. I'm speculating here. I don't know that. But it appears I'm just saying it appears APD. The command staff must have had some level of evidence or some level of. Conviction that what these officers were saying was not what really happened, and that's why they feel confident and letting him go, but wouldn't that have been presented at in the case against these two officers. You know, we we found this out. I would think that you would use whatever if you really thought your officers were in the wrong that you would provide that information, and that it would be used now at that was used and the jurors came back and said, yeah, that we're not seeing we're not coming to the same conclusion that you came to write it seems like that should be enough to to to make them go. Okay. Well, let's look at this again. And yeah, we understand that there's not enough here to prove that they made up the story line, and that's a little bit of an unknown. I guess of how much of that kind of information was shared with civilian oversight, folks. And was that just a part of the internal? Investigation from AP. And they're the ones that knew about that part and not the rest. I've I don't know that again, we don't know everything could be justified firing or not. I don't know you can weigh in on this. And speaking of police, the director of Austin's police oversight sat down with Cayenne. And they talked about coming off the hills of this weekend when we had so many. Shooting. She said that they saw last year a big uptick in the amount of shootings that were involving officers. And in fact, she said there were twelve last year, and the average of ten ten years cumulative has been about six though, I mean on us doubled. And she's saying that the trend that she's seen in this is it's involving persons of mental health crisis. So there again, that's as as she points out here. There's a trend that we're seeing here, and there's an uptick and shootings. So what we don't know all the calculations that figure into that? For example. How many more visitors were there and the city over a given period of time than in years past and does just the volume and the number of people that the police are dealing with the play into that in any way. Likewise, the mental health cases. Are there more? Known mental health issues in our city now than there have been in the past. And that just so happens that's played into this in some way. Again, some things we don't know. This question is say I feel like just lately that the mental health aspect of it. I think it's it's starting to garner. A lot more attention. We're starting to look into it. And so therefore that may seem why we're seeing that more. But yeah, where where do we go from here, if you know that we're seeing more and more of these shootings that are involving this type of mental health illness. What are we doing as officers? What are the officers doing better trained for this? And how do we as a community tries to help out as well? Five one two eight three six zero five ninety if especially the specially tough when you're dealing with mental health related issues and suspects or people that the police are encountering with those kinds of issues. Minor standing is the police have had some level of training about how to try to more successfully deal with people in that situation. That's when they know about it, though, there's how do, you know, a lot of call you maybe don't know that until after the fact you're you're halfway into the encounter and realize there may be something amiss here. And then you find out, of course, after the fact all this person had mental health issues, but they don't know that. Well, from the get-go that's putting all the onus on the officers themselves. That y'all are the only ones that can fix this. If you if you encounter this where I don't think that should be the case, it should definitely fall on the individual in those closest to that individual to kinda help. To get to a point where it hopefully never escalates toward the police are having to be called an answering these five one eight three six zero five ninety here on kale BJ. You can give us a call or send us a text. How how does the police department deal with with this kind of trend of mental health issues, and is a legitimate concern that the office of police oversight here is just taking a look, I guess at the raw data and saying, wow, there's a pretty significant issue here. Relative to data that we've had in years past and requires some more attention James is calling in from bass drop on the market Melinda show on kale VJ high. James good morning. I I hear what you're saying concerning this data. However, I think unjustly paints a picture, but police officers are actually doing more shooting. Is it an issue with police officers doing shoot it? Or is it an issue with more violent behavior from the mentally impaired Hillard sweet salting? And if it isn't a police officer problem, it's a mental health issue and the mental state of those people resulting police officers having to defend themselves. Well, you're bringing up a legitimate question. I would suggest there are some unknowns. You're asking questions at least Melinda. And I don't have all the answers to here, and there are legitimate questions regarding the number of times that police officers are. Getting involved with those that have mental health issues. We just don't have that raw data here to to kind of shed some light on this. I saw that. We're not we're not paying the wrong. Pictures of out there. Out there doing his job. Most of us don't have Hanson asking even begin. I think we need to support of more. So than just assuming the therapy issue. Okay. Well. Thanks, james. I I don't think there's anybody in this studio, assuming anything in fact, I just said the opposite..

Well, it's still a tragic deal and those can be just as dangerous anything else. But yeah, I mean, I was already calling for the the city to shut down the electric scooter program, they have gone, and I still feel that they should feel. They should shut it down. And reevaluate. Well, we got two different text messages here from APD and Travis county EMS, I did send a message to chief Manley to give us a call because we talked a little bit earlier about all the possibilities of an all out ban on these scooters at least a moratorium if you will a pause to figure this out, right? And I'm not sure I would support that or not. But new braunfels did it recently. I'm wondering I'm wondering who would have the authority to do that is that the mayor is at the city manager scooter guy can the police chief issue a moratorium. Does he have the power an abundance of caution and safety can the police chief issue a temporary good question but jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five nine hundred and before the top of the hour.

The Democrats have wore the all white uniform. It's not the first time. That's all that goes back decades. Well, but last night, there was an added element to it. I think a lot of it was just the looks on the face last night. It just it drew a lot of attention to it. It was like a bunch of kids that went to their first pep rally. And they didn't know if it was okay to stand or not Saturday Night Live if you don't capitalize on Cortes in all even though you you lean to the left and also on Nancy Pelosi with their cards and not knowing when to sit down you've missed the boat. Chatted San Marcus good morning. Yeah. I was calling about this last caller, Tracy or Theresa Theresa Theresa. Yeah. That last comment was that she had it throw in that. You know, you're pro-abortion that you're not pro murdered. I strongly disagree. I think anybody that's going to promote this agenda asked. Asked if they own that, they're taking a life, and they can't dance around this issue anymore. It's not a pilot sells like it was sold back in the seventy life. Yeah. You wanna claim it whatever medical conditions or tough occasions, or whatever you're going to have to own it to say, I'm I'm taking a life. I'm killing something.

Here's the question. I have I got I got like a popularity amongst these this group of people, including this this woman that called in. And I mean, how do you how do you get to that level where you calling you by the way, let's kill babies. Well, listen, Chad. Listen, listen, there's there's a lot of you know. A lot of hype on both sides of this issue, and it's very understandable to very controversial topic. And to be honest. It's one of those radio topics that we try to avoid because it's so divisive. It's not morning show friendly conversation solutions. It's dial change your topics. I mean, you know, mommy, what's an abortion and talking about that on the radio. It's the kind of thing is you taking your kids to school. Some people changed the dial. But I got one question. Nobody's been able to explain this to me. I I got an Email last night. Talking about later term abortions. What does that mean later term abortion is that mean third trimester? And what does that mean? And how common is it's how how does it happen? What how communist this win? Would it be used? And when would the circumstances be that you need to abort a child that has already come out of the eight fifteen in a check on traffic.
