I think the U K has it. It's been done here. The United States is well restorative justice was also being used in high schools was like rather than kicking somebody out, you know, allow them to meet their victim, and then the victim explains how the actions of the individual made them feel, and somehow they're supposed to, you know, find a new direction life. It's a way of sort of rather than having the individual go towards the judge and then to prison or jail. It's no back it up and take a look and see if we can stop that. This is also part of Marxist organization. Black lives matter. They're all into restorative justice. And now the King County Council has said. You know what? We're going to give this a shot. So let's see if right and the 90 vote. I just want to point out, John. I know you want to kind of try to smear to some of our Marxist idea. No, no, no, no, no, no, really Like like matter is Marxist. Restorative justice is not Marxist. Okay, So why did you bring that up? King County Court system is backed up. So I'm just putting in perspective. What Black lives matter is damaged and Marxist organization proper perspective. Okay, fine. You got ready to go to jail. King County Court system is.

Trump Campaign Files Lawsuit Against Philadelphia Over Election Offices

"Trump's campaign is suing Philadelphia over city leaders preventing campaign reps from watching people registering to vote or filling out mail in ballots in election officers there. The lawsuit filed tonight comes amid the president claiming he can on ly lose the battleground state of Pennsylvania if Democrats cheat and suggesting Philadelphia needs to be watched closely for election fraud. But election lawyers and city leaders and the state's top elections, people all say that there is no right under Pennsylvania law, even for a certified poll watcher to watch people do things like register to vote or fill out their ballots. Well along the same lines. During Tuesday's debate, President Trump told people to go into the polls and watch very carefully and that's raised concerns about voter intimidation. Tonight. The head of a local elections board has a strong response. Our board has zero Zero tolerance for any intimidation or wrongdoing at the Poles. To me, it's a criminal offence, and if that occurs, we will get the law enforcement involved. Jim Salik, president of the Montgomery County Board of Elections, says county police will be patrolling every voting center and Dropbox location. The board's Gilberto's Alia says it is possible to become a poll watcher, but you have to make arrangements in advance. Those individuals Can I just show up?

Activists On How To Sustain Movement Against Police Brutality

"Cove in 19 crisis has not just been a health crisis. It's been an economic crisis to and as economic crises arise, so it is unemployment and homelessness. In the years following the 2008 economic collapse, major cities saw a dramatic rise in the number of people experiencing homelessness. And now amid the Koven 19 pandemic, we're seeing a rising rate of addictions, according to the eviction lab in 17 cities that they tracked there have been more than 53,000 eviction since the pandemic began. Results, not just homeless men on the street, but Children living in shelters, families living in their cars and Wal Mart parking lots. People crowding into friends or relatives shared rooms this period of time since the Koven 19 pandemic hasn't just exacerbated the problem. It's also Given rise to a kind of grassroots activism against it. Earlier this year amid the national uprisings for racial justice against police brutality, anti homelessness activists have been playing an increasingly public role. In cities like Minneapolis in Philadelphia, activists have established homeless encampments and protected them from law enforcement sweeps that displaced the camps. I'm joined now by Will James, reporter with Can k X public radio in Washington and host of the Outsiders podcast about homelessness in Olympia. Great to have you here? Well, yeah. Hey, Matt, thanks and were also on the line with Anna or so a reporter with the Philadelphia Inquirer who has been reporting on a homeless encampment slash protest in center city, Philadelphia. Anna. Thanks for joining us. Hey, thanks for having me your welcome. So, guys, let's start with you. Will you've been following the homes this crisis throughout the West Coast? Can you just give us a picture to start of what This crisis looked like before the pandemic. It Yeah. So, you know, just take Washington State, for example. You know, we have an estimated 21,000 people who are homeless in Washington state. And on the West Coast. What kind of distinguishes the West Coast from the East Coast when it comes to homeless is thie proportion of people who are homeless who are living outside who are unsheltered who are living in tents in the woods and on the sides of highways? By some accounts, you know all the numbers and homelessness are a little bit shaky, very hard to get a solid number on them. But as many as two thirds of people who are unsheltered and homeless in the United States live in California, Oregon and Washington, so homelessness has been very visible crisis impossible to ignore in the West Coast, vast encampments of people living in city downtown's and in parks and before a coven 19 homelessness was the front and center issue. In so many West Coast cities. He was getting a lot of attention. There was a ton of advocacy it was, you know, in every City Council meeting every county council meeting now homelessness is one of many emergencies that states and cities and counties they're dealing with. And so We're seeing advocates fighting for attention for this issue in a way that that really hasn't been necessary in past years. How are they fighting for attention House out? What does that look like? It looks like kind of trying to use the media show up at City Council meetings and government meetings and just kind of reminding people in power that Even though there are so many crises that we're dealing with right now, this homelessness emergency hasn't gone away. In fact, much of the West Coast, many of the cities on the West Coast were in an official state of emergency around homelessness before this began, and so cove in 19 is actually you know, a state of emergency on top of a state of emergency in many of these cities. Well, Ana tell us what's going on in Philly. There have been a couple of homeless encampments around for months. But they apparently double is protest movements. Right? Can you explain a bit about what these look like? And what they're like? Yeah, you know, for Philadelphia. It's sort of a new and unique structure. We have had encampments of homeless folks for several years now that I have grown in size and in prominence, and the city has, you know, swept them cleared them out, and then people scatter and eventually re gather somewhere else. Now in the past couple of years, they've really been concentrated in the city's Kensington neighborhood. Which is a couple of miles away from center city, and from where you know, media and politicians sort of do their everyday work. Now the largest encampment of homeless folks, which was organized in June by affordable housing advocates, is on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which is a very prominent space sort of in the middle of the city. It's where the famous art museum is located. It's surrounded by luxury condos. And it's really in a place that is impossible to ignore. And so we now have this interesting confluence of the racial justice movement mixed with the movement for affordable housing for people living in homelessness. And so it's presenting the city with this really new and interesting challenge because they just can't handle This encampment like they have others in the past. Are they making a connection between racial justice, the black lives matter, Movements and homeless activism. Are they making a connection there? Very much so thie Encampment was established two weeks into You know the racial justice protests here in Philadelphia, and it was immediately tied to black lives matter. The activists connect the criminal justice system and policing systems. With poverty and homelessness. There are a lot of black men and women who are living in this homeless encampment who have been in and out of the sister criminal justice system almost all of their lives and The organizers of this encampment are saying, Look, this is all connected. If we reform our policing systems to stop just proportionately impacting black people in Philadelphia, we can make a you know a real change in what poverty and homelessness looks like in this city if we can get people into housing, rather than putting them in temporary shelters or sending them back out onto the streets where, whereas the activists say Homelessness could be criminalized in a variety of ways. Whether that's folks being charged for substance used public drunk in this, the like these systems really are sort of inextricably linked. And how is the city handling this? Are they allowing this homeless encampment to just stay in the center of town? I understand is also a a second one near the Philadelphia Housing Authority's office. I imagine these folks can't stay living there and intense and whatnot for then, you know, indefinitely. Yeah. You know, it's been interesting. The city has given several eviction notices A TTE this point for both encampments. You're right. There is a smaller encampment in north Philadelphia outside. The Housing Authority, which runs public housing in the city. But so far the people living there, and the activists running these encampments have resisted thes eviction notices in a variety of ways. A couple months ago, there was a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the encampment. Residents, claiming their first Amendment right to protest was was being violated. And several weeks ago, the city put out a final eviction notice and Went, outreach workers and police showed up early one morning. At seven o'clock. There were dozens of activists who had gathered to defend the camps with sticks, boogie boards, makeshift shields, and it just was very clear that That a sweep of the encampment was going to be really ugly on DH. There was a ton of media there Tio to capture what occur so outreach workers and police sort of stepped back and No eviction has taken place yet. You know the city and the activists are are still sort of negotiating. Will

Hundreds of business and permanently closed to these overreaching mandates. I hope Dr Kane, meaning Dr Virginia Kane and the marrying County Health Department will be responsive to these concerns. The marrying County Health Department has been free to operate without any checks. It bounces for far too long. This written by Josh Bein, a Republican on the Indianapolis City County Council. The issue, of course, is mandates. Of course, the issue is mandates. The issue is not Whether that you should wear a mask and advocating for mask wearing Which brings us to the statement of Alley Brown, Indianapolis City County Council District five Science and data driven time and again that wearing a mask greatly reduce the spread of covert 19 and have the city known these facts that the onset of the pandemic we would have aggressively implemented this policy from the beginning, and in turn, we would have saved lives and restoring our community to some form of normalcy. However, this simply isn't the case wearing a mask is not only responsible, but it's a sign of respect for our neighbors, friends and family members. That's why I'm disappointed by the political stunt from India's Republican counselors. They're not only bucking to the buckling to the demands of the political rhetoric coming from their base, but they're now blatantly telling Hoosiers that their lives and their safeties do not come before their political selfishness. I hope they have a change of heart soon because this pandemic is more than just politics and they know it. Council Brown You missed it. Oh, God, such a swing. The issue is mandates and you should not have the authority to mandate masks. You should recommend masks. The issue is mandates, just like the governor should not be able to mandate a mask.

With so many of today's economic realities. The idea that you have to have on Ly Union labours laughable idea and that that's the thing that you're most pleased by shows how political you are, as opposed to what opportunities there are for the growth of the city. Now, if you're really interested in some return to normalcy, wouldn't you have been out there Front and center is saying that the City County Council should order glass for all these businesses that have their businesses destroyed. Wouldn't you be out there with a broom cleaning up after all of the homeless issues and drug dealing issues that we have in the city? In the totality of the city. Wouldn't that be you? That wasn't you? Was it? There's never a social media moment or social justice moment. I should say where you don't have something good and woke to say. What about when it comes to doing the hard, nitty gritty, dirty work? When it comes to supporting the most diverse community, we have the business community?
