That's double the number introduced in 2017. Theo U. S Department of Justice is investigating the Minneapolis police and other departments. And brought civil rights charges against Derrick Show. Vin and the other former officers involved in George Floyd's burger Cities and school districts have responded to Minneapolis public schools, joined districts across the country and cutting ties with police. And Minneapolis City Council members made headlines when they promised to defund the police. That's provocative shorthand for rerouting public safety dollars to social services that can reduce crime.

Well, I guess Anjo like many people, when I first saw that bystander video Usually there is a situation between a police officer and somebody there's a officer makes a split second decision where they fire a weapon. It's over in a second, but this happened Over nine minutes. We heard George Floyd pleading for his life, and we saw the reaction of the officer Derrick Show Vin, just not changing his expression, and he kept the pressure on. So I think that's when I knew as a boy, You know, it's gonna be really hard for this just to be pushed under the rug or just kind of forgotten about. During the next news cycle. And Brant the response from city officials that was swift as as well different than than what we've seen in the past, starting with the quick firing of officer direct Children. Right that that was different. I mean, usually there's got to be an investigation or there has to be due diligence done here before we make any disciplinary decisions. But this was the next day chief Mid Air. Arredondo came right out and said that this officer is no longer A member of the Minneapolis Police Department, and he fired the other three officers involved as well.

Outdoor Dining In San Diego
"Post pandemic things happening in the real estate world and probably one of the biggest things or at least one of the biggest changes that we've seen and we it's interesting because we have the weather for it but the dining regulations for outdoor dining regulations or being extended right.

They're going to leave that setup for the next year a little over a year and i think it's great. I i agree. I mean i i've eaten indoors now Being vaccinated. I feel pretty comfortable with it but i also rather eat outside and if i had the choice typically i would choose outdoor dining at this point just because we are living in san diego and What why would you wanna be in a crowded indoor space. I mean even though. I know they're not full capacity inside. I mean it's typically it's nice weather sun doesn't go down till almost eight anyways it's It's easy to eat outside. And if they have good if they have nice options. I think that one thing that you have to think about what this outdoor dining is. These people have spent a lot of money. Maybe a little too much money building really nice dining experiences outdoors. So they're not like you're just eating on the side of the street you really are. You're in a really kind of an environment. That's conducive to the restaurant.

It's our guide for how we spend a the taxpayers dollars, and so I know that they're going to be getting in there and attempting to remove funding from the police department so that they can push those monies toward other areas of the whole point is to take the the ability of the police department and have them the justice which they are providing their wanting to strip that. Ability from the police department that's going to be number one. Secondly, they're probably gonNA come up with something about some independent oversight. I'm now calling it activist oversight the been some meetings in the past where they've come together and tried to have a safe space to where they could really hash things out the the union is part of that because arbitration etc and people got all up in arms left it wasn't safe enough space. So, independent or activists site will be coming up now city councillor some people think well, this city council does it. What does it? How does that mean you guys are vital role and the running of the city walk walk us through the role of the mayor, the role of a council person and I mean it's we're not a mayor strong city. So excellent question. So it's a it's a check and balance, and so we have got the mayor, which is the administrator of the executive of the city, and then you've got your council, which is the representative of the people and it also manages the purse strings. So we're they're managing where every diamond dollar spent sales tax collection, real estate, Avalon, etc.. and. So that's where we we really have to focus on and with that in mind of course, that's where we hear so much about defunding police or activist oversight a currently we're in the middle of the mural which has been painted or the graffiti that's down been painted down on Greenwood. Those are things which are gonNA come before the Council a council is so important because these large national movements have determined how can I change America and the way that it's easiest is to go playa apply a ton of. Pressure to the municipal level, and if I can overwhelm them with haight in Vam and Venom I can traditionally swing those people which may not be strong in their roots and through that that's how they're changing. America yeah. Is it a fulltime job? It is a part time job fulltime labor of love. Well, they're very good. So do you have another another side?

We should be agreed. City Fountain should be a bike. We have Philip panels on every building. Call it a day. Yeah I. Mean Listen I couldn't agree more actually. The economics of solar have made it so much better for people for cities to be able to invest in solar. In fact, we just had. We just The DWP signed a contract with solar provide earning in a place called L. Land, and I believe the price was less than natural gas. So this is actually becoming more price, efficient option and we have because we have. Surrounded by so much desert like there are actually huge places where you can invest in big solar facilities and that that's cheap for us. That's what we can be doing.

It's she truly sheets started basically with not much came within what a couple percentage points of David Rue the current and existing council member, and obviously for people who don't live in La. You'll feel like this doesn't sound like something you can relate to. This is the moment everything like this is happening in every city and we just goes to show how local you can be. And how local that you can enact change to affect bigger chain? So that's why we have nifty Ramadan. Thank you for. Thank you for being. I. Don't know if we deserve it. Thank you for having me I don't know if I. Can we resume. For you of our rehiring her. Thank you so much for coming into this? Masters in urban planning from MIT no big deal, executive director, former executive director of times up entertainment. You started La Neighborhood homeless coalition in two thousand seventeen, and now you're like you know what I haven't actually done enough. So now. I'm going to fix Los Angeles. What who inspired you Yelich? Who did what did you? How did you get this fire under Yo to effect change so quickly and honestly so much of it in your spare time. This I feel very overwhelmed by the introduction. Honor Let me, start paying that. No and I think for people who are not from Los Angeles I think they don't understand that. A City Council race in La is like almost like a congressional race. In other places, each council district is so enormous that two hundred fifty thousand residents in each of them they have enormous amount of power. The city of Los Angeles has four million residents in it, which means it's as big as some states bigger than some states across. Across America, so the potential for local elected representative here to make change that in the lives of so many people is huge, and we have a very powerful council relative to many other cities, because we only have fifteen council members in the city, and it's a week mayor strong council system, so each council member can do a lot, and I would just say that the reason I decided to rob. Asked me what inspired me. I'M GONNA. Tell you why ran. I think I was just really fed up. I was really fed up with a city that I think I love so much and is so beautiful and so incredible. That just wasn't doing right by its residence, and I know that the city has the power to do that and so i. thought okay, maybe if we have people in office, who feel that fire, who feel that urgency that I know you guys do that. I know so. Many people do in Los Angeles. That we can actually make the city do its job. Fire there right now. Yeah, the, why do we because these are all? That's I think probably unanimously I. Know It's not a partisan thing in city council, but I assume everyone's a Democrat or maybe an independent I'm not sure so these are all left-leaning people who could even say despise trump who you would think have these sort of liberal ideas, and yet they vote, and I just found this out when I was reading more about you. Vote unanimously on most things. Obviously the budget for the police is higher than ever, so what is? What is the issue in in a city that should be a benchmark for other cities? What is the issue and in a Liberal City Council? What is the issue? Why are we so stagnant? Well, you know when when we have volunteers who come to learn about the city and to volunteer for our campaign one thing that we always tell them. Is That L.? A. is one of those cities where are voting? Residents are populous is really progressive, but there's a huge gap between the very progressive values that we have among our residents and the values expressed by our elected representatives and part of this I. Think has had to do with the fact that for so long nobody really paid attention to city council, and so it was very easy for special interests whatever those may be. To Take over the council, and to make it serve their interests, and for a long time, this meant that small groups like the Police Union, which is obviously a big group but through. Campaign, donations and independent expenditure spending packs spending in other places was really able to exert huge amount of influence over city, making corporations were allowed to exert a huge amount of influence over city policy making by paying into campaign campaign, basically campaign donations for existing city council members, and because so few people voted. People. You know and the people who voted were I'm very narrow segment of our population right so these were often homeowners. These were often wealthier residents. These will often older residents, and this is not to say that their desires for the city a wrong, but that they may not have been reflective of the needs and desires of a much broader population of residents who had very different needs of our city, and so the residents who did vote ended up having priorities. The priorities are government, but I think what we have right. Right now is an opportunity for real change, which I think is happening across the country. You know we had had an explosion in interest in local government you. It's kind of like I. Feel like it's like the beach right I live in la I ever go to the beach all the sudden I know. There's a lot of people like me. He goes whatever the beach will always be there they're the beach is doing it seeing and then all the sudden the taken away and you're like wait, but I love the.

Just think it's laughable that these elected officials think that they're gonNA live in peace while they go on recess. while people are waiting. For should change in the city, and so it's fine that they want to go on recess like that. You know I mean it's really not fine, but let's say. You're in an unprecedented crisis on many fronts. That's happening right now. There are so many fires that need to be put out, and we have a dearth of leadership, but anyway. I was saying I was saying it's fine, because now gives us an opportunity instead yelling at 'em on city council meetings gives us an opportunity to show up and from their homes. He had called call their home numbers all their partner numbers, and not let let them live in one second of peace, and we are so well organized right now that I can assure all the city council members that they will not have the second piece and.

They're going to let the let this budget. Go through in July and That in itself, perpetuates violence right like giving lapd that much money. Actually is violent to people. It hurts. People kills people. It gets people on necessarily thrown in jail in so that is their action right like that. They are intentionally allowing this happen. They're essentially giving lapd that much money, and so I said it's fine because they are going to see exactly like what we have. Twenty four thousand people in Los Angeles FILL OUT A survey right?

Moves fast these days for sure yeah I mean. Yeah Black and Brown people have been. Oppressed and brutalized by police for a long time and a lot of people are now waking up to it had and that's why people are like okay. This should really needs to change And Yeah, so the People's budget is you know about reimagining public safety, and like one one thing to think about is people that live in beverly. Hills, CIVIC PALISADES Ren would I'm GonNa Police. Do they see roaming around their ions embed? It's not many NI- bed. They still feel safe. There and the reality of the situation is that. For so long that Black and Brown indigenous folks when they have police in their community, they don't feel safe, and so why do like it's just ridiculous that it's been ignored for so long, but you know if one or if a group of people are saying that the police communities don't make us feel safe, and we know from elsewhere at just not having the police around things are still You know kept safe right, so it's just the realization that.

And as you are talking about I, mean you guys have done that? By joining forces with the black lives matter movement. Which is obviously incredibly important, because we can't talk about creating, adjust Los Angeles or about the economic effects of covert without talking about racial justice, because they are inextricably linked.

"Qualifying for how the the the Aging out of that better integration nation between The the The government h governance which is under one deputy mayor and the housing using governance which is another deputy frankly they were not talking to each other or not agreeing on on The Path forward for the last year. So you do not have that you know particularly well integrated as an example. There was the bill by my colleague. Raphael Talamante got BRONC- That would create a certain percentage or set aside unit supportive housing portfolio Fifteen percent. That was it's not. You know the the housing folks and at city all were not in favor of that And but it was it had it. It's a big. It's a big piece of allow people to move out of shelter because you need the affordable housing stock on that to be available so You know there's a there's a lot of of those kinds of common sense Solutions that we think that that one of the things about this report it was The staff they worked at the reason why it took so long to do was because there was such an in depth amount of of research that went learning to live and thoughts on this and so staff Laura Hope uphold Ramstad. That's a really good good solid people on that worked on this Engaged with with providers with advocate And and the issues that actually league we're talked about issues that came up or the issues that ended up in the report supposed to as opposed to saying okay. You're all that stuff but at the end of the day we're only gonNA put in the stuff that we think we can pay for or we think that You know we think is Is is on our priority priority. Everything that all the advocate all of the providers of For you know years I want to sort of ask one. Follow up there and then I think we're gonNA take a listener caller too. But you know I it strikes me in the report in and what you're saying that this is sort of about where her broader policy meet sort of management and execution and implementation and re evaluating programs as they go in tweaking them. So you know to me a lot of this looks like you know kind of as you said a lot of this is things that are already in place but it's it's tweaking them and making them work better and you know it strikes me in in reading through this that a lot of this seems to be about better. You're just better run city government you know agencies talking to each other more as you said said maybe a streamlined deputy mayor in charge of all these housing slash homelessness issues. But that a lot of it is really about government just working better with the policies policies that are in place. I don't know if you wanNA comment stuff gets caught up in red tape You know for for extremely long long periods of time so allowing Aging out of the runaway and homeless youth or in the runaway homeless youth system which is under The agency E. Y.. CD's computer elements VHS. For whatever reasons and do I see what volume while. They can't qualify for Abacha so it can't get into You know whatever. Housing is out there because They have no battery get them out and and they agreed years ago that they would that that would change. Well they'll hasn't changed meeting last last week before with a bunch of the advocates and providers and You know the the the advocacy group. That is for homeless. Youth is like when is this going to happen. This was promised years ago So yeah there's there's Things things like that where You know there's no reason the world by that can't afford I will say also and I think this is a really big problem is you know a basic dysfunction between the city and the state government because the mayor and the governor or add on And that has a real impact on on on on all of these programs because the state Often can has to sign off on on initiatives videos. Doing the city has the negotiate that that's where the agency HO TDA so they may have a good day have to stack after relationship but when stuff has to actually be communicated between the executives. You know there's just there's this ongoing Row Gerald Green the mayor and the governor that that really actually impede progress on a lot of the issues and other issues to. Let's bring in this Call who's been waiting patiently High called a welcome to maximum murphy. Go ahead with your question for council members. Stephen Levin accused fellow Justice Center. Hello can you hear me yes. Go ahead caller. Hi this is Craig Irving Justice Center high. Count the number eleven. No Hi I wanted to ask you two questions and I'll keep them brief You know I was really appreciative. Where so many people about the report but in in being super appreciative There's also room for you know critical dialogue so one thing I was really curious about. I was really a happy to be that you all were recommending reevaluating. You count and I think there's an immense amount of discussion there You know we settler. who was the champion? MPM pass away. But he had been the first person who gets to be counseled upon that in the history of the city But wasn't mentioned in the report really Was the hope count. And I know you've been critical of hope virtually no advocates Was You know take seriously academics. Certainly don't For the most part it's a structural undercount and so I I'd rather not the hope the youth count. I'm really curious about The Hope Count. There's not been any hearings on it And whether or not you envisioned something in the future that actually take seriously counting street homeless people and not What everyone almost everyone and for listeners? Who Don't know the whole count is the annual one night survey of very visible street homeless that the city conducts and and then issues an annual all number which many people think to be An undercount of who is actually street homeless. So Casimir if you want to respond on whether you think action the hope count is is possible Yeah I mean I'm open to that and You're right thought you hearing US typically about the hope we are here. Having coming up on the city's efforts to just shoot homelessness and that's certainly Can Be addressed in that hearing and so I'll definitely Communicate with you offline to Incorporate any suggestions this the hearing is going to be coming up soon so Any idea that we put forward. I think it's You know it's one two little And frankly I don't I don't I don't put a lot of stocking to it. I mean I always participate in it and I think it's one thing that we can do. It does use the number winds up getting used so widely though right I mean that becomes the sort of like flagship action number for how many people are homeless on the street. That's true that's true and and absent any other accounts Right MHM That's it you know it's it's I think that The right through whatever the number is whether come on how or five thousand people who are who are Living on the street the the policy solutions are the same. And so that's the report speaks more to what we think actually needs to happen in order to have people come in off the street. So that's more safe haven that much more aggressive timeline on safe haven as that's the equipping shootout routines with your resources that they can offer to people. The reality is that street Irish teams. It's the people that are on. The street are not con type of street outreach. Teams Often contacted dozens of times shootout receives problem that the street outreach teams teams don't have any solutions to offer that Everybody that's living on the street. Knows that they can go to shelter They know that they have right to shelter. You don't want to go to the shelters that are offered offered to them because the shelters that are offered to that they don't place at So so the reality is that we know what the solutions are from a also. It shouldn't delude ourselves into thinking that the hope that a last quick question. Unfortunately we only have Less than a than a minute but I just wanted to you too tied together this some via the issue of housing Basically you know there's a lot of programs comes in and vouchers and outreach efforts in a lot of the things we've discussed here and many others in the report but there's also the question of the need for more low oh income housing and I know the speaker at the press conference. I think maybe I asked him this or somebody else had but You know said there'll be a council affordable housing plan actually coming to to complement is but can you just say you know briefly one thing about how you're thinking about the need for more housing. I mean we need more housing. That's that's that's available to people exiting shelter or housing all the people I lower income that means having some workable voucher system. This whole lot of pool is about about the the the the level of the voucher amount There's a bill in the house Hopefully support pill which is a concert. Our number Hennessy. Bill We hope that that gets enacted in the state budget this year which would row which would raise the voucher limits to the fair market. Rent right now there's you have a voucher. It's about eighty percents of the fair market rent. So if you do bedroom family of four for The vouchers were fifteen hundred dollars. Well Good luck funny a two bedroom apartment anywhere in New York City for fifteen hundred dollars right. It doesn't exist. I'M GONNA. I'm going to stop you there. We we we did talk to Senator Krueger recently on the show and she said she's fighting for for that bill Quite strongly this year so we know that that's a key Component this happen regards just shelter for years It's just it's it's so wrong. I'm sorry I yeah thank you. Yes so wrong to allow US three minutes shelter for two years awful. Thank you city council member Stephen Levin we appreciate appreciate the time We'll talk to you again. Soon uh-huh.

"Chairs the city councils public safety committee which has N._y._p._d.. Oversight and we're going to talk with him about related issues issues and then get into some other stuff on affordable housing and perhaps Queens politics he represents district and southeast Queens. There is no shortage of interesting Queens political story lines most pressingly the recount that's ongoing in the Queens District Attorney Primary which we've discussed now for a couple of weeks on this show <hes> intermittently and we're hoping to find out results there soon so welcome councilmember richards to the show momentarily but it's wanted to ask you jared before we get to councilmember richards words <hes> there's been so much in the in the news and we'll ask him this but so much in the news obviously around the trial N._y._p._d.. Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the mayor's response lack thereof leading due process play out etcetera saying you know really that had his hands are tied. I had to defer to the Staten Island District Attorney and then the Federal Department of Justice <hes> and then finally moved ahead with the N._y._p._d.. Trial are you sympathetic to his argument there. Do you agree agree with those. Who've said he should've acted quicker? I mean I tend to agree that at some point. He should have sort of delivered an ultimatum to the D._O._J.. Saying listen if we don't hear from you by X.. Day We're moving ahead with our administrative trial. I think so and I think in his reaction to the D._O._J.'s announcement of recent weeks that that would be the city policy going forward is a tacit admission of that. I am sympathetic to the fact that there is you know there is a due process. There is a civil service procedure and that that should be respected that protects a lot of workers. It's frustrating in many cases. It's been frustrating this one but be that as it may we're coming to a point where built a blouse. You'll be out of <hes> exclusive excuses. If that's what it's been released other options and the decision will come down to him and I think that will be you know for better or worse a defining moment of his Merrill Turkey and of his sort of political profile what what he decided to do there. It's it's not an easy decision for him. especially he has a city to run a at least at the moment of presidential campaign to conduct but <hes> we're rapidly approaching the point where that has to occur yeah I mean as far as I can tell from his comments over many months you know he's tried to give some wings and knives to people people to be more patient because this is going to be resolved and it almost seems like you know he's sort of indicating. Yes don't worry when this is all said and done officer Pantaleo will be removed from the force. Maybe I'm reading too much into it because he hasn't said as much but he's promising missing. A resolution in August were waiting for the N._Y._p._d.. Administrative Judge to put a recommendation to Police Commissioner O.`Neil although officer Pantaleo then gets to respond to that recommendation I don't the mayor's promise of August feels a little premature mature to me but we'll see how that shakes out <hes> but we're waiting have the judge present those findings to and recommendations to Commissioner O.`Neil Than O.`Neil axe <hes> and then we see what happens if there's some sort of lawsuit or something you know filed and that's part of what I think the mayor's trying to protect against is him point you know quote unquote poisoning the public dialogue and then you know setting the city up for litigation if they do try to remove officer Pantaleo from the force so let's get city council member number Donovan Richards on the line and ask him about this and a lot more council member richards welcome to W._B._A._i.. Guys doing well. Thank you how you doing awesome day with that. <hes> <hes> former president <hes> thirty two beaches funeral today <hes> heck the Figueroa who we unfortunately lost <hes> star big leader in in the union movement across the city and country and real real lost city roller coaster today but glassy cobb rag step up <hes> who's a native of southeast Queens and <hes> who lives in my district who will be the new president of thirty MPG since you've. You've mentioned that let's start. Their Council member in one of the questions obviously is that this is a personal tragedy for <hes> for Mr. Figueroa's family friends certainly his allies in the union. What do you think is the significance in terms of policy in terms of politics of union power in the city of an untimely death like this because it is it is a major event in the question obviously is what impact will it have on the discussion about workers rights in New York City? You're going to see <hes> a heck does work continue <hes> I meant this gentleman who was a consensus bill. Someone who is respected but who really provided us all a blueprint on how to move <hes> the union movement forward <hes> you we look back at the fight for fifteen at airports right and organizing around <hes> you know how fast food workers <hes> taxi drivers now. You know these all things he had his toe. Oh dipped into and I I'm not. I don't feel like we're going to see a slow down and we have this movement is going to continue to go because he certainly built out a framework and I have the utmost confidence <hes> in Cobb rag were. Side by side with him since nineteen ninety nine <hes> at the J. who's I certainly had the pleasure working with medicine. We have a Euler in my district now and we've already worked very closely to ensure that will have building service where because on project <hes> even before we you know approve the project at <hes> the city council in a few months so I feel like the work is going to continue and we just have to build on the foundation at Hector laid out for yeah. You gotTa Very Interesting Point <hes> about Hector Figaro's leadership of thirty two B._J.. which is that he you know saw it as part of his philosophy and the and the larger union movement to help organize workers that weren't necessarily going to be members of thirty two B._J.? But he was very active in very involved called in labor organizing that was outside his direct union and that was a very interesting choice that not necessarily every leader of a of a specific union <hes> would take on so that'll be interesting to see where thirty two B._J.. Goes does <hes> on that front and you know the larger sort of strategy around organizing that the the union takes moving forward <hes> so let's let's get back to N._y._p._d.. Oversight which Your City Council Committee does and and you've been outspoken on a lot of issues related to policing <hes> before we get back to where things stand with the trial of officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner. I wanted to ask you first about <hes> sort of some the uproar around the mayor's comments about <hes> having quote unquote the talk with his son Dante who obviously <hes> who has a black mother Shirley mccray <hes> and has written and talked about growing up as a young black man in New York City the mayor's gotten a lot of criticism for bringing that backup on the presidential debate stage. What's what's your stance on that conversation and and how <hes> sometimes 'em we N._y._p._d.? Union Leadership <hes> reacts to that add instead of the public discourse around discussing having that conversation <hes> I think it's a real compensation and for black and Brown communities and I remember my father having this talk with meat very young <hes> you know with and my father and I remember one day <hes> we were hanging outside sitting on the stupidest one of those hot summit days and detectives literally pull up to a how it asks us. What are we doing there it so there are so many of these situations that arise every day <hes> for black and Brown communities that this is a common conversation on how to interact <hes> how to live after an interaction <hes> and I you know I for the Union leadership and it's very unfortunate that something I've pointed today out today I think I spoke to the New York Times and I was speaking of how oh the lack of diversity in union leadership certainly by me them from understanding the black and Brown experience so I think the unions have an obligation Asian to make sure that the diversifying rank and having people who are -flective of these communities in the ring so that they can get to size of the story instead of this narrow perception of these black and brown communities? Just let's make this up <hes>. I like to remind People Sean Bell with my neighbor <hes> after he was killed you know I am a close friend of mine who passed away through his daughter. You know one of her first birthday party <hes> so this his personal to us you know these are things we go through and I think the mayor's correct to talk about this..
