"We have sunny conditions and much cooler temperatures anywhere from 5 to 10 degrees from the weekend. Good afternoon. I'm Patty rising along with Jeff Bell. Here's what's happening. Almost half of the counties in California are on the state's Corona virus Watch list now as covert 19 continues to spread, and more and more people are hospitalized with the disease. KCBS political reporter dug, Sovereign, says Governor Newsome announced today that Marin, Monterrey and Contra Costa are all on the list now of counties that I have to roll back there. Re openings. 23 counties are being monitored by the state now with Marin and Monterey added to the list. Contra Costa back on it, but Santa Clara coming off This means bars must shut down now in Marin and Monterey County's gnome or indoor dining and movie theatres, tasting rooms and zoos have too close to that puts next week's reopening of the Monterey Bay Aquarium in serious doubt. The problem is accelerating community spread with Governor Newsome announcing that the seven day testing positivity rate is over 7% now and over the last two weeks, Hospitalizations were up 50%. Nice suitcases, up 39%. But the governor did thank Californians for largely following the rules over the holiday weekend, wearing masks, keeping their distance, avoiding closed beaches, he said State inspectors went almost 6000 bars and restaurants and only have to give out 52 tickets. Even if people are out of compliance, the engagement Got people back into compliance very quickly, And that's the spirit to which we are engaging in this level of enforcement. It's to modify its to fix problems. It's not to penalize. The governor reported just 24 Cove in 19 deaths statewide over the weekend, a much lower number than usual as the virus mortality rate seems to be dropping for reasons still unexplained. Over 19 deaths are often underreported, though on the weekends Doug Sovern KCBS and keep it tuned to KCBS this afternoon. Doug's going to be back at 3 30 For our state of California. Today's guest is Dr Anthony Fauci. State prisons are overrun with the Corona virus, and so are ice detention centers. In fact, there are growing calls now for the correction system to stop sending inmates to those immigration and customs enforcement centers. CBS is Jim Taylor reports. We're talking about Californians who have earned their release from the prison system, but because they are undocumented, they are sent immediately to ice detention centers where the Corona virus is rampant. Oakland Assemblyman Rob Bonta Ice does not have a good record when it comes to protecting public health. Isis confirmed at least 2700 covert cases nationwide. But a new study from the Vera Institute estimates the truer number of positive cases could be 15 times higher. Bonta is the author of this letter to the governor signed by more than 60 state and local lawmakers urging a halt to the practice of sending those who completed their sentence. To immigration and enforcement ice by suspending the transfer of community members from California custody in prisons and jails to ice detention facilities. This is something that Is avoidable, something that is in the hands of California to change and something that we should change. He calls the plea of vision for justice says he's confident the governor will do the right thing. Jim Taylor KCBS. We're getting late.

Striving For Justice with Quoc To

"Can you elaborate on this dream job thing I like. How and when did you dream of becoming a public defender? Like what does the story behind? I I mean. First of all I. It wasn't my dream job so much when we worked together prevention student comedy night. I I knew I wanted to do something social justice related At Ti we? We worked on one of the things that work. There was violence prevention, and that actually got me started on like looking at took one of the classes that. Are exactly record started their violence prevention as a public health issue, and so I just. Looking at looking at that and thinking I wanted to do something within the community I grew up in a poor underserved community community caller. You know a refugee we. We came over America on a refugee resettlement You know plan and I grew up in A. Poor, community stalled pitfalls of crime and I mean pitfalls, poverty and homelessness in lack of social services, and what does the? How that intertwined with you know criminal justice. Actually I haven't really shared this a with a lot of people, but in college. I don't know if you remember, but about. About like a a couple of weeks before the end of my second year I think that was your senior year. one of my fraternity mates got killed outside of our house I think it's like it was huge news at Berkeley right like profits class in nuclear engineering. Really I don't remember I apologize. There's there's a lot from my past. That's a blurb, but yeah. Yeah, yeah, so he was. He was stabbed outside Sigma Pi. And I was I was like there. I had seen him like minutes before that. So the trial unravelled a over the next couple of years and. It slowly some. If some of my about this podcast is GONNA be like! Wow, we didn't even know this, but you know when I was sitting in the through a case and going through that case I felt this. Kid You know when I learned more about it turns out like he was. Small was unemployed. She works for nonprofit. Is that I? Think was like construction work, but you either way. They came from a working class. Family went to public schools he went to. Berkeley High School nearby. And I sitting in that courtroom I kind of felt more. I felt like I empathize with him. You know 'cause he he. He reminded me of you know the people kids grew up with You Know An. Myself came through the environment and I know that I'm very fortunate to be where I'm at You know I you make your own luck, but a lot of it is you catch outbreaks along the way and I kind of was keenly aware of how close I was from not being at Berkeley, not being where I was. You know and so. I I couldn't help feel empathy for him, and so it kind of made me like. You know I wanted justice for my. My friend, who was killed tragically, but I I also felt like his kids GonNa. he kills one drunken site. Right and so I was like it gets convicted. He goes to prison. Justice just felt elusive, really lucid to me and I think that was experience was very transformative for me especially with my background everything that was going on knowing. Justice and so. You know I got to law school and I actually was recruited to help. Run A campaign for my one of my mentors. Ru Training is a form of public County new has private practice now. was running for DA and so if. I. Don't know people pay attention, but the recent election Cisco They elected a yes boden from the San Francisco, public office, but he wasn't I poetry a run for DA And so he ran. He ran for da I manage his campaign. Obviously lost George, GASCON Wanda year and but just being with him. Just he was like you know. I was working at A. A firm that summer I was out wasn't happy on civil, a civil work and I just wasn't happy. And like you got for public office and so I did. And I the next semester. A you know got got internship at Contra Costa Public Office and I fell over the work it just was. It was like this is what I WANNA do this. Would you know what to do and? Yet at the rest is history. That's. I mean. I'm very I've just having a moment just reflecting on How are passing cross? You know in in these ways enlightening, bring Larry and stuff, and like all the craziness of life in Prevention Institute essentially couple years older than you by essentially babies like really working on a on a very big trajectory that we had no idea what was about to happen, but it's I feel really I don't mean it patronizing me just so proud of you. That's audible and. It's not a small undertaking I mean like. Any any endeavor, especially dream because there's a lot of layers to that because I think be these big visions that we can have, I can feel very like. Larger than life, but like you actually went out and did it so i. just really proud of you. That's amazing
