In other words, police are free to use those measures while robots restraining order is in effect. Back. In June, the City Council passed a ban on these measures in response to public outcry to have the right to protest and not feel threatened by those charged with your safety. Any chemical weapon makes me feel a lot safer. But the Seattle Times reports the U. S. Department of Justice asked the federal court to prevent Seattle police from implementing the ban. The DOJ argued the band could conflict with the 2012 federal consent decree governing Seattle police bias and excessive use of force. The extended restraining order is in place until June

Election Officials Declare Winners in Two New York Democratic Primaries After Federal Judge Finds Voters Disenfranchised

"Of Election certified the results of the June 23rd primary earlier today. It comes one day after a federal judge issued an order directing board of elections across the state. To re examine their absentee ballot totals to consider votes tossed out for missing a postmark as long as they were received by June 25th. It's just the latest twist in New York's pandemic primary, which saw a tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots, compared to 2016. Joining us now W. N Y City Hall and politics reporter Bridget Bergen Ridge it let's start with what happened today. The Board of Election certified the results of a primary that took place six weeks ago. That means they finished counting. But why did it take so long? Jamie, You said it right there that we saw that tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots. People really were taking advantage of this expanded absentee ballot system that Governor Cuomo Did through executive order because of the pandemic, and then the counting process associated with it was very methodical. You know. Absentee ballots can be rejected for a lot of reasons. Missing signatures were among the biggest issues, but Another issue. We first reported here at WNYC and Gothamist was related to ballots invalidated for missing postmarks. Two candidates and 14 voters sued the state Board of Elections and Governor Cuomo, arguing that voters were being disenfranchised through no fault of their own due to missing postmarks. Absentee ballots needed to be postmarked by June 23rd and arrive at the board of Elections by June 30th to count and there was a big decision in that case late last night. Give us a quick overview of that lawsuit. Last week, there was a two day evidentiary hearing where witnesses testified about how the Board of elections handled this flood of absentee ballots and how the United States Post office process them. Some of what we learned was pretty shocking. Like the fact that the Board of elections dropped off more than 34,000 ballots to the post office to mail to voters the day before the primary. That meant voters would need to get that ballot in the mail on June 23rd rushed to a post office box before five if they had any chance of mailing it with a postmark. To make it eligible. And beyond that, there was evidence introduced that showed that more ballots in Brooklyn were invalidated for missing postmarks than in any other borough. Wow. Then tell us more about the ruling issued last night. So Judge Annalisa Torahs presided over this case in the southern district. She found the plaintiff's arguments more persuasive that ballots were in fact treated differently in different parts of the city. She ordered the New York State Board of Elections to direct all local boards to count otherwise valid absentee ballots, missing postmarks as long as they were received by June 25th 2 days after the primary. She also criticized the state's argument that it didn't intentionally disenfranchise voters where they basically pointed to failures by the post office and tried to place the blame on them. She wrote quote. The Constitution is not so toothless. When voters have been provided with absentee ballots image assured that their votes on those ballots will be counted. The state cannot ignore a later discovered a systemic problem that arbitrarily renders those ballots invalid. What does it mean Bridget that the city Board of Election certified the election results? Isn't that a violation of the judge's order? Well. The city also directed its staff in each borough to prepare to count the ballots that qualify under the judge's order. And they said, they're just awaiting direction from the state Board of elections to go ahead and do that. Okay, so assuming the order stands, could it change the outcome of any Racists? You know, is one of the plaintiffs lawyers, Remmy Green said at a press conference this morning. We don't know what we don't know yet certainly one of the plaintiffs Raj Patel, who is a candidate in New York's 12th Congressional District, which covers parts of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. He's hopeful that this will help because he's currently trailing Carolyn Maloney abi about 3700 votes, but at this point, it's not really clear there are enough votes to change that race. However, there could be other races and other parts of the state that we don't know about. And one of the plaintiff interveners in this case, Maria Coffer who ran for District leader AA position in Queens. She only lost two City council member Karen Causal. It's by about 100 boats, so we'll see if there's anything that changes their 100 votes. Wow. What was the reaction from the State Board of Elections have they signaled any plans to appeal? So I have yet to hear from anyone from the State Board of Elections or the New York Attorney general's office who is representing the state. In this matter. I will note that one of the attorneys for the plaintiffs basically warned the state and governor Cuomo against appealing. Here's attorney, Ali Nagy. Me. Governor Cuomo. Your legacy is on the line. If you will peel this, you'll lose in the appeal, and you will be another second round suppressor votes, and that is not what the governor needs. Now, if the state did appeal, obviously, that matter would go before the Court of Appeals, and it's worth noting. Earlier this summer, this same judge Analisa Torres ruled against the state Board of elections. In another election law case, she overturned their decision to cancel the Democratic presidential primary. That case went before the Court of Appeals and her ruling stands.

"Because now the so called speed cameras air up. Here's the danger of progressives with this they use the Roosevelt Boulevard. To start the red light camera movement. Meaning that there are now nine red light cameras there, But there are multiple red light cameras all over the area. Probably more than 20 or so something like that. I get stopped in New Jersey. The idea was we look a dish. You got a highway coming from City Grant and the boulevard? How many years ago? Did they start with the red light camera there and all the nonsense associated with it. Then after that, it spread well, we need more so I tried not to travel to read the Red light camera Bermuda Triangle of the Roosevelt Boulevard. If you're going 56 you're going to get a ticket. Now you've been on the Roosevelt Boulevard. People trying to You know, make time, it said or a 56. I think a lot of people could be doing that. What they do next, though.

It ought to be up to cops to make judgment on this and yet We're living in a city here in Philadelphia, where you see all kinds of illegal, outrageous behavior Go on, and nothing is done about it. It comes back to the same thing with the protesters and all the stuff that we talked about around that. So this idea of speed cameras now let's have them all over the place. I think we have too many cameras already. I get it. The usage in solving crimes occasionally and all that. But how far do we want to go? How much intrusion do you want? How many cameras do you want?

A $1,000,000,000 taken out of the NYPD is budget. The headline was that that happened.

call cal Gucci hobo Tokyo which means almost Tokyo he says about six percent of the population thirty five thousand people here are immigrants that's extraordinarily high for Japan an island country that's restricted immigration for centuries the new one the somber manually Cisco Gucci has many immigrants seeking asylum from persecution particularly about a thousand Kurds who fled Turkey but Japan hands out refugee status the less than one percent of applicants so many live without documentation or requires a legal status to you there so that's where mayor okay no key comes in he funds education for children without papers including free after school Japanese lessons and he spends about six million dollars a year in city funds on health insurance for immigrants who can join the national insurance program those into death will dole's it's pragmatic politics the mayor says companies in his town are facing a severe labor shortage like the rest of Japan they need immigrant workers of course this is not without controversy the mayor hears complaints about immigrants who for example don't follow the country's intricate garbage disposal roles where is the rules on how to sort and dispose of household garbage I kao Gucci's multicultural coexistence subsection you'll find flyers in several languages with advice on Japanese life like how to separate your recycling and there's another flyer called friendship news plus info on civic events anything to help acclimate newcomers but there's also this pamphlets made to look like passports that advise Japanese on how to

government but they're continuing to appeal the patriarch of the family the uncle is the only one with a long term visa no Kurds of ever gotten the silo in Japan are you hopeful that your family to be

"Our first question comes from a listener in San Francisco's South Beach neighborhood. I'm Kevin I was born and raised originally in Texas but I've lived on on the west coast since two thousand and two day. Kevin was walking around San Francisco checking out a display of historical flags outside City Hall. I noticed you all the other flags sort of made sense. Yeah Down with the shift. You had the flag of Mexico things like that. But then I saw Texas the Texas state flag flying outside San Francisco City Hall. The Texas flag is made out of three bars and start. There's one vertical bar on the left. That blue with a white five pointed pointed star in the center and then there are two horizontal bars and the rest of it White are above red wine here to answer why there's a Texas flag in front of City Hall is reporter Ana Decline Hanukah. I love you so first off. Walk me through what these flags outside City Hall even are okay. So if you walk up to City Hall in San Francisco you'll walk through two rows of nine flags each they all represent these different points in American history. It's kind of like walking through a time line of these important moments like you have betsy. Betsy Ross's thirteen stars in a circle that original American flag. Or you've got the classic. Don't tread on me flag with rattlesnake which would become the navy's first flag there's also a republic of California flag which kind of looks like our current state flag. But a little bit more of a I would say like a kid druick Shen rudimentary. Bear looks a little bit more like a pig to me just to me. You know maybe other people disagree But the state did upgrade so when California became a state and joined join the Union in eighteen fifty Later on the flag would change. Now we have the ferocious grizzly right but as our question Asker Kevin Notes. There's a Texas Texas flag Among these flags outside City Hall so why Texas that flag is technically the Republic of Texas flag so also in the mid eighteen hundreds the republic of Texas existed for about ten years. It was its own independent republic recognized by the United States. At the end of that run it became the twenty eighth state but that flag stayed the same. So it's kind of hard to differentiate between the Republic of Texas flag and the State of Texas flag but I'm told by our city's parks and Rec Department that it's the Republic of Texas flag. It just looks exactly the same basic. Aren't you access flick. Okay cool so. The inclusion of you know flags like like the Republic of California and the Republic of Texas. They were kind of odd choices at the time But the people who curated flags for inclusion in the eighteen flags felt they represented important if not sometimes tumultuous points in our country's history flags you know certainly throughout history. There's many examples of when they've been pretty controversial. Are there any other other interesting examples of ones that have been outside our city hall well since you mentioned it. The confederate flag actually flew for a short time outside of San Francisco City Hall. Oh but it was removed shortly after it went up because people protested it was originally part of those eighteen flags that went up in nineteen sixty four and then civil rights groups and others said hey you know we don't want that representing our city. Wow well there's a story that you will not find that Civic Center Plaza these days but you can find details about all the rest of the flags on these little plaque set center at the bottom of each flagpoles can check that out If you can't make it out to Civic Center Plaza you can also head online to bake curious dot org where we will have information about all the eighteen flags that are out there in front of City Hall all right. Well thanks for finding the answer and you're welcome. Our next question comes from a listener. Who didn't want to be recorded? But I can tell you. She's a big history buff during the early days of European settlement in the bay area public. Life centered around the town square. But these days there are dozens and dozens of square scattered all around in San Francisco. Our listener wants to know which was the first public square in the city. And what happened. There we sent reporter Mari Soul Medina Katina to hunt down the answer today. I'm at Portsmouth. Square in the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown around here are a lot of GRANDMAS and grandpas playing playing cards. I've heard this is the city's first square which makes sense because it's in the center of everything and the TRANSAMERICA building funding. If literally right across from the park there are some rich. History here at Portsmouth Square but is this the first square for San Francisco to find out. I met historian Christopher pollock before this became the city of San Francisco known as your but Plano and It was occupied first by Spanish and then later by Mexicans pollock told me the plaza was the center of government affairs for the Spanish and Mexican settlers. flers so Portsmouth Square is the first square. It was around before San Francisco became San Francisco and before it even had the name Portsmouth Square. The name would come when the Americans arrived during the Mexican American war that broke out in eighteen. Forty six. It's the two year war that resulted in the US. Acquiring half of Mexico's territory to fulfill. What many Americans believed was there manifest destiny any captain John? Montgomery lands near Portsmouth Square and symbolically raised a flag to signal that the Swiss American Occupation Montgomery went on to rename the square after his ship. The US Portsmouth.
