What about the things that separate a man from a woman that are not just a winner in coochie. There's a lot more that goes into that men and women are born with with different attributes. It is unfair it is wrong it is perverse and any world where this makes sense any people who think this is normal cannot be reasoned with. These are the same people who will tell you.

La county sheriff alexander way but. Do you have any idea how much has been paid out in settlements to families who have been victimized by officers civilian shootings. You'd have to give me a a bracket or a timeframe for that but It's a. I believe over the last ten years i wanna say was about fifty four million but actually the bigger payout in terms liability for that part is always been traffic collisions not shootings since one thousand nine hundred ninety l. a. county has paid out roughly fifty five million dollars in settlements in lawsuits related to the gangs operating within the la county sheriff's department twenty-one million in just the last ten years gangs like the bandidos the reapers the executioners the vikings regulators in twenty nineteen the fbi was investigating whether those deputies were using gang light tactics to recruit young latino deputies and retaliating against them if they rebuffs them you have in the past downplayed the significance of those gangs and at one point called them quote a cultural norm. I will say that you used the term. Gang is a actually. That's fraught with the legal implications at the fast do not support describing them as a gangster very specific definition would again constitutes in a lot of worry about gangs as actually now that the department is majority. Latino led by latino sheriff is taken out a very big racial undertone that they must be gangs because they're latinos. So i'm gonna push back very hard against that description that anymore. Let's call cliques. Let's call them. Cliques okay. I will give him that. Let's call them cliques. Still fifty five million dollars is paid out since nineteen ninety twenty one million in the last ten years and you said you were going to address the problem and i have done exactly that no very first day in office. I removed the campaign of east. La station for his failure to do his job. Addressing these deputy clicks in fact my predecessor did absolutely nothing to aggressively root out the issues of the development these clicks and their hazing things that they've been engaged in misconduct. So we i in office. I took out east. La station captain replaced entire chain of command east la station. Ultimately thirty six people were moved out of the station. We terminated for employees. We suspended of a twenty two employees. We did everything possible on top of that. We created a policy first of his kind on the department. Dip prohibits deputies form these clicks in harming either fellow employees or members of the community in now. We're enforcing that. That was a february twenty twenty. So we're doing everything possible legally to do it. The problem is the political establishment. Specifically the board of supervisors cannot accept the fact. That we are holding deputies accountable. It doesn't so well for them. Well clarify this for me. Then you earn chavez was was put in place to to help make those moves right. Transfer those deputies and he said an interview that thirty-six transfers were voluntary some due to promotions and. he wasn't even sure how many had been aligned with the bandidos click and then the attorney for deputies who alleged they were beaten by bandido affiliated deputies. Say that only six gang members were transferred and the deputies who were accused in that beating incident. We're actually put on paid administrative leave. Is that a hard enough stance. Actually there The the comments of commander job is are not consistent with his actions or statements to our administration because a thirty six number came from him and he was given a specific instructions. What to do when he got east. La carried them out and later on if he wants to revise it that we can control the fact of the matter. Is the four defendants on that lawsuit. Were the ones that were terminated in. That is something that doesn't really fit the false narrative that they're trying to sell so we have to keep that in my relationship with the la county. Board of supervisors has been contentious from the outset. Why real simple. The endorsed my opponent. And they've been leveraging every single county permanent every single action to discredit in de-legitimize the sheriff's department in my my job as sheriff of la county. And it's not gonna work.

The video was incredible. Do you regret that choice. Was that the hill to die on. Actually when it comes to the fourteenth amendment and due process yes you have to follow the law. You have to follow where the evidence takes you and if the process were manipulated per abused or someone who has what they call them exonerate or exculpatory evidence in that is hidden from the civil service commission that is a very serious activist comic actually rises to the level of criminal conduct and they were okay with that because the end justifying the means in the eyes of the board of supervisors that is not acceptable.

Mainland gabriella by ventura is the executive editor of arte publico press and co founder of the us latino digital humanities program at uh she tells houston public. Media's catherine lou what the project will entail so the project that we are envisioning. It's a virtual online archive will feature puerto rican poets who have published in the united states. You know in the archepelago as well as the us maintenance and what we want to demonstrate through this archive is all the literary activity. That has been happening. From the jones sheppard act. Which was you know. The exit gave the puerto rican community. The the right of citizenship and from then until the contemporary times so from nineteen seventeen just to get out. Yeah from nine hundred seventeen seventeen and so we want to do with. This archive is to following the like the setup that poets dot org has that features different points that includes their biography some links to their work and then appoint and will be assigned it as a bilingual and will feature the original works by puerto rican poets. There were either written in puerto rico. Or the orthodos gra we will include sites or leads to the different Sites that are related to the poyet's to enhance the access and the knowledge of what in who puerto rican points are the different topics that they're talking about. What do you want people to know about. Puerto rican literature. Puerto rican literature is rich. It is multilingual. it is empowering it speaks to a community that represents the different Facets of you know of the history that that puerto rico has Has endured and that it is a it is literature that we should all be you know reading. We should all be incorporating within our curriculum so that we are better readers. We are better informed. We are better community members within the united states. Because i feel that a lot of times we see puerto rican literature or puerto rican history as something that is apart from our makeup from our from our history from literature etcetera and so. I want people that you know to see that. This literature is an important element in component of the literature that we read on a daily basis within the united states. So what are the goals of this project. And it's sort of implications. Our goal is basically to showcase you know the puerto rican poetry and has all the different facets and marvelous that. It hasn't it how it contributes in how it is. You know an important element of us culture literature. Not american caribbean. You know in the future we will. We will extend this portal to include narrative. And perhaps like other genres so it'll be an archive. It'll be so rich in and the accessibility of materials that we usually don't find whenever we look at airports archive a lot of times. We only have access to maybe their poetry and the rog rafi at one point in their biographies so we want to be able to provide a site. That teachers students at all levels can access to the case. They need to do a book. Report or prepare lesson plan to really showcase the the richness of puerto rican literature culture Contributions to our nation. You know to to the united states but also most importantly as a tool that will allow people just general audiences to to see you know the puerto rican community presence in the literary world as active contributors in also to validate the fact that That we are a community that is multilingual and that you know that Spanish bilingual make up in is an important element of our makeup in our presence and or expression and so for us. You know making a an archive that is bilingual that is easily accessible that features a wide variety of of writers. We are of course focusing on on making space for the lgbtq community. We want to make sure that we feature you know women especially also contemporary poets. Who may not have the opportunity to have a presence in an anthology for example because they're not considered established poets and so their work doesn't get picked up until you know published a book so we want to be able to connect that multiplicity of voices. It makeup who the puerto rican point is so that we provide a you know a good range so that whenever somebody thinks about puerto rican poetry. They're able to you know. Maybe you remember a name and they remember site and then you know they click on that side they get lost in this beautiful multilingual world that has a variety of ways of thinking about poetry and about thinking about who the puerto rican community is a lot of times. We think of the puerto rican community as the community. You know they. They lives in new york or the community. That stays in puerto rico. But the reality is that you know it is a dis sport community that has representatives all over the us all the way to hawaii to the south and we need to understand a little bit more about how that happened right that. This is a community that it's been under siege through colonial powers a continues to be killed by those a lot of those restrictions in a lot of those in positions are reflected through poetic expression. And so for us you know. Hopefully when people visit that site. They'll be able to get a gist of that. And understand that a little bit more. Gabriella by ventura is the executive editor of arte publico press and co founder of the us latino digital humanities program at the university of houston which beginning in march of next year will host the puerto rican literature project an online repository of literary materials in spanish and english documenting aspects of the puerto rican experience..

"Out there but but. I'll make sure that we're looking at ecuador. also thomas is next thomas. What's your question for harris county. Sheriff ed gonzales. Why do people who commit violent crimes allowed to post a relatively low bond and then get out and couldn't move right on crimes make making sense. It should be if you have a county. Jail should be locked up in kennedy jailer. Or post a very high High bail are jealous. Actually pretty full You know our our jill right now has about eight thousand eight hundred people like i said we operate their largest Gel in the in the country So we definitely have a lot. Locked up I think you know my observation of our local belt system. Is you know. I wish you would move to an intentional base system. Directions not one that simply based on money Because we hear a lot of discussion going on about the local bell system and things like that and to me. It's a very complex system. And i think we My hopes what would have been that the at the state level that they could expand the net of individuals that could be detained without a bond and at the same time to understand that there are some lower level individuals simply could use an alternative to incarceration. We're not gonna incarcerator. We to problems and one of my biggest frustrations is eight when when you see people getting released on multiple bonds but beyond that when you also see that someone is unavailing crime. That's able to have the money to bond out as well because You know i it you know it needs to be based on risk and when we see some of the Decisions sometimes that are made i. I really questioned whether we're doing it. Based on risk there should be based on on risk and ability for person to show and appear in court and I we do have a risk tool. That's that's supposed to be utilized them. I wonder if that's fully being utilized Because you know again. It just seems that some Are not considering the risk and safety of the community and not privy to the decisions that go in within a courtroom. That's not my side of it but you know we should be working as a as an entire system because clearly there's a lot of frustration and some things weren't working and It could bring harm to the community so we should be looking at the entire system of criminal justice and see how we could do better but until we could move to an intentional base system of correction which we currently don't have I i'm afraid we'll continue to see a lot of decisions. We're always question. Hey you know. Why did this person bond out the bonds that have been higher and you know and things like that and and the person goes at recommit. A crime human behaviors very difficult to predict but. I think that we should be doing much better in terms of of the local system. Here sheriff's if you are confirmed by the senate to lead ice who takes over as harris county sheriff That would be something that The commissioner sport would have to make a decision in terms of of who the The next officeholder would be and then Ultimately obviously it'll be an election and i think that's the best way for there to be an election and the citizens of harris county decide who they want to continue to see walter. Should that happen. What will you point to as your greatest accomplishments as sheriff in. What would you point to and say. Well there's something there's still more work to be done. Well i mean. I think that I am really proud of the work that we've done In terms of our mental health programming When when i came to the sheriff's office. I created entire bureau focused on mental health Programs are core program that equips and provides or deputies with an ipad to be able to triage mental health calls that they respond to You know in real time with a mental health clinician is award-winning winning which is recognised nationally. And we'll be receiving an award for that. We increased our mental health training. We now also Did a duty intervene training that we just began implementing this month as well More personnel are receiving the crisis intervention. Training also i can't training that Is new it's it's a best practice and it teaches other methods to resolve issues. For maybe something less than a than a weapon is involved like the farm like a knife or something and so You know we definitely were already moving in that direction You know and so. We've really done a phenomenal job. Standing that up within a few years And so you know. I'm very proud of of some of that work I think that The agency is much more modern now. and so we're definitely moving in the right direction. I i love serving with the men. And women of harris county sheriff's office that do film which i've each and every day And some of the challenges you know we we operate within a very dated facility That's our local gel system here with a lot of systems breakdowns and You know it's a big challenge to to operate When you consider the number of meals. I must be prepared every day. The number of rounds that must be completed daily of millions per year. All those are big big challenges I think we're on the right track. But you know we're we're not there yet where we want to be And so it's going to continue to be a work in talkers but we're definitely moving in the right direction. It's just gonna take more time. Ed gonzalez is the sheriff of harris county and the president's nominee to head up immigration and customs enforcement. Sheriff gonzales. thank you very much. Thank you so much i appreciate.

"You know the person's exit exiting our system and at that point is the one that makes those determinations. Obviously we have to comply with us before and things like that. So they're the ones that make the determination we we don't Keep track honesty of you. Know who they're letting go. And what what type of charges and things like that because simply again by before it state law. We have to comply so. That's under their purview. That that's not. That's not a local decision. That happens here. Dula is in south. Houston what's your question for. The sheriff should be the by the way Chief 'cause dallas that we are. We are very proud of you. And congratulations Thank you very much. I think you're not going to teach culture in washington you point and So be careful what people tell you so much okay. So my question is in regard to law enforcement and economic justice. Now you can put as many police. As you want there is no economic justice of reducing inequality in our society putting the burden on police. You know i'm just initial question are going forward now. And i'm hoping you get confirmed but just putting emphasis on police brutality police enforcement law enforcement that at tracing income inequality you know you know we. We have the largest population president african americans that he's a coordination of in history that this have people have been denied opportunities and other things unless we can address those issues. Law enforcement can handle everything for society. just want to ask you that question. In regard to enforcement and inequality you know lack of quality education and all these things. I mean you know they they putting a burden too much on others addressing the the core issue thank you. Yeah well. you're you really touch on something that i'm very passionate about and that's always dealing with root causes here In our harris county jail where the largest state of texas they won the arts in the country. We see a lot of those disparities. Every day that you touched upon. We have a high level of illiteracy within or inmate population. We have a generally poor health. We see all the typical chronic illnesses that are out in the community. If not worse we see diabetes hypertension. We have a geriatric population. We have pregnant females. That are here. We we see the whole gamut and we spent a lot of money on medical care and other things like that. We also spend quite a bit on mental health care When thirty plus percent of our population has some type of diagnosis of mental illness within our facility and requires at least one psychotropic medication We've collected some data as well where we have a lot of individuals that i formerly been involved in the foster care system as well that ended up incarcerated and so all of those issues that that are very important in what ends up happening and something that we try to address as well is that the individuals go back out into the free world and then they find it very difficult to compete in the marketplace when they have very few marketable skills and then on top of that they've been incarcerated before and you know it's another another barrier that they have to overcome these challenges like always tell folks when i walk through gel. It's you know. I it's life we're gonna have to to deal with it and work and we try to give them skills to overcome some of that but those are tremendous challenges of that all societies side. He's have to grapple with all those disparities that do exist. We're also doing a lot to work with the children of incarcerated with incarcerated parents as well because we have a high number here in harris county about ninety thousand children every year have a parent that's incarcerated in our jails so We we have to do something. A break that that that cycle that that cradle to prison pipeline. That so many talk about because we know that if a juvenile has apparent that's incarcerated were on probation or pro the likelihood of them becoming justice involved in their life becomes about sixty or seventy percent as well so that that's a big problem and so it's really going to impact. The future vitality of our region is There's a whole Group of of individuals out there that already starting out you know from from a very bad position. And so we're wanting to rethink. How how we address that whole criminal justice system and and to be mindful of those other that collateral damage as well norbert in northeast. Houston norbert. what's your question for sheriff gonzalez. I had a question about prostitution like we probably dishes. Pretty bad at my side of town you steps and and i was just curious about like we've called the police before and they come in they deal with the prostitutes we don't ever focus on the people controlling the prostitutes. I'm just wondering if is something that i'm supposed to be reporting device as like organized crime or how does this. How does it work for me to be able to do something about this. I'm not saying the women are criminals. I mean they're victims as well. So i'm just. I'm not sure how to handle that. What what What what was the court where you mentioned what what was some of the area. You mentioned if east takes jensen where i live. It's on yeah north. Yeah yeah absolutely One of the things that we did When i took off his back in twin seventeen is we really try to focus. Not so much on the women you know because we understand that many have been trafficked or are there because a lot of other underlying issues We see that in our jail where there's a lot of unresolved trauma Domestic violence drug abuse threats all kinds of stuff and so we have tried to focus more on on on the consumer side of it Whenever we participate in different task forces with both of the city of houston houston police department as well as the district attorney's office to try to combat this issue and human trafficking in general You know a lot of that That industry has gone underground. I mean a lot of it is now is done through apps and other things. It's a whole different Way than what it used to be. There's not as many would we would call streetwalkers as as there used to be in the past You know that that is a quarter out there that i could make sure that our team takes a look at and to see what could be done. We also Do send forensic nurses tour Operations as well to make sure that That you know there are some Assistance there for the females. That may be involved. So it's a complex issue. I mean it is out there in different communities We know that other corridors like in south west are also grappling with it so it does happen But we understand that you also want to make sure that your communities are staying faith and that some of the behavior that's around just the prostitution itself isn't spilling out into the neighborhoods and things like that. Were children may be around in schools and things like that. So i'll have our team take a look at that area out there a little bit more. See see what you're doing but you're doing the right part by reporting it You know and Another good thing is to get to know some of the local law enforcement in your area. I think part of that falls within the houston police department. I know have a pip meeting every month. Usually and you get to know some of the commanders out there and leaders And it might be a good way for you to visit with them directly and voice your concern so that you can understand some of the challenges that they may be having.

Welcome back to the program. Hey good morning nice to be with you. Glad to have you with us. And i do want to talk about your nomination in a bit. But let's let's start with some of what's happening in harris county related to law enforcement. I guess which really start where matt harrop led off in the newscast just now talking about that hit and run accident on. I forty five last night This is not the only incident like it over the holiday weekend. On friday night there was a deadly crash on the west side of the katy freeway near mason when a driver. Who was veering in and out of lanes slammed into a tractor trailer stopped on the left shoulder in spring driver plowed into a food truck. Another person died in a street racing accident on. I forty five. That was in. Montgomery county impaired driving distracted driving street racing. Was it just another weekend. Typical july fourth weekend or something worse this year. Well unfortunately i here in our region we've become accustomed to it and that's the sad thing i've been saying for some time that really seemed to have developed a a dangerous driving culture and all of the different factors that you mentioned or some of them Cova didn't change anything. We continue to have Fatalities on roadways. We continue to see it now. Continue see impaired driving. So all of those are factors the one last night involving the teams. Just heartbreaking situation allegedly arguing with the mother and the vehicle moving vehicle Gets out of the car you know as a car travelling and another car strikes her and flees the location and she was pronounced a see so I it's just again very tragic. We continue to see a number of fatalities around our roadways here in harris county and i really wish something that could change. We've increased enforcement. We've added more We've created a a unit specifically trying to address some of the dangerous illegal street racing that we're seeing out there. Some of the illegal stunts that were seen as well but apparently It's still not not enough because we're still seeing too much of it here we're gonna continue to. We can't change course. I received an email from a listener over the weekend. Complaining about people dodging in and out of toll lanes and it just reminded me that we see this of on our highways especially but really everywhere all the time could even more stringent enforcement of speeding among other things. Make a difference. Make a dent enforcements. Just want peace. I've always believed that. You really need a multi prong approach. You need more education more awareness as much as we do. We still need more You know we go out. And we do different traffic initiatives to try to remind people to slow down and sometimes they don't even issue citations to simply you. It's not about raising revenue or anything like that. It's really about changing driver behavior You know we see some of those portable traffic units that tell you kind the speed you're going and sometimes just that quick feedback loop Tends to work but people get back to to speeding again and we tend to have a lot of that. We have a lot of people running. Red light Distracted driving like you mentioned And in the hundred days between labor day and and You know the hundred days after it tend to be the most deadliest especially for young drivers that are out on the roadways. You know it's summer and they get behind the wheel of a car and just sometimes act responsibly. And we really hope to change course. We hope that we could do. Better here harris coun- setting aside driving and accidents. What are some other trends. You're seeing in terms of crime in harris county these days. Yeah well we're also seeing. I guess related to driving as well. You know an uptick in road rage incidents we partnered with the houston police department and gps last year to raise awareness about it as well because we're seeing a trend that you know we were very unhappy about it was just a number of people discharging weapons at other drivers you know. And and so Tempers are short sometimes especially when when the weather is hot and like you said aggressive driving all of that just the perfect storm and more people seem to be packing weapons these days and you know they they forget it. It's a dangerous thing. And i responded to seen the other day on these takes freeway and You know it was really scary to to see one of the bullet strikes to the rear window and there was a child seat right there. Thankfully the child wasn't in the car at that moment but it could have been fatal occurrence for that for that infant and so we're seeing taking that as well it seems and so you know that that's That's all very concerning. And we know what. We're seeing the uptick in violent crimes In the greater harris county area. And while we're not immune to it You know we're we're we're seeing another parts of the country as well but nonetheless it's concerning while working collaboratively to try to see what we could address some of those those root causes and making sure that we're staying aggressive and proactive and making sure that we go An and get those Chronic offenders that are out there. Julie writes it seems that more shootings are happening by younger shooters she asks. Where are they getting the guns from. How important is it for gun owners to keep their guns locked up both at home and in their cars very important. And i think that that you said i mean at at home you know making sure that your teams or even children don't have access to it in any kind of way that you're being responsible gun owner As well as when you're In transit as well that you secure weapons as well. We've seen situations where people are being Followed they they see them leaving a gun range for example and they see the different stops that they make they stop and At a local goods store. Stop to get something eat. Maybe let the gun in the car. People breaking into those cars and they're ending up in the long hands and so we're seeing quite a bit of that and good observation by by that caller as well that we Do are seeing also an uptick in crimes involving juveniles and many times armed as well. And i mean they could be a very dangerous situation only because there obviously Not proficient with a weapon but You know they were to have some kind of encounter with law enforcement you know. It's it's just some bad things could happen. And they're also out there committing very serious crimes with those weapons as well. We've seen some of them committing armed robberies and things like that so really need more adult supervision. You know making sure that they're also being responsible with their guns. Liz rights and asks Could you explain how texas gun laws impact the flow of guns across our southern border. And what you'd like to see on a national or state level to try and curb gun violence and gun trafficking. Yeah well i mean it definitely is a is an issue. I mean the cash and weapons. Traveling south You know have been a major concern for a long time You know with some of the cartel activity that goes on and supporting some of that That illegal activity that goes on with that You know that's something that you know. Current federal partners are trying to tackle. You know i'm not privy to all the information and things that they're working on but we know that the department of justice immigration authorities and others are always working and trying to combat the stem of those weapons and so You know it's very easy to get Access to farms especially along some of the border state so You know that's big issue to tackle and you of course could become one of those immigration authorities here soon. We're talking with harris county. Sheriff ed gonzalez about trends seeing here in the houston area. He's also president biden's nominee to head up immigration and customs enforcement. We.

You know not not high winds but still hot. So that would certainly concerned everybody in the area any indication as to the source of that loose down fire. You. Know what we're looking at right now based on where it started and when we're working with the belief we're probably deal with the lightning star. We'll be looking at that but that's the reminder we talked to the community. It's always nice to hear a storms coming through and you know a couple of days earlier we had a couple of. storms blow through. However, they brought very little moisture and they brought lightning and so I know we watch the lightning strikes. We had states multimodal aircraft up helping us to look for potential start.

But their hands are tied as well because there's licensing issues and they don't. Play along and follow the. Rules The bottom line is they could lose their license to operate small businesses that have been. So already hard hit and I think you and I are pretty much on the same side of the equation when it comes to mask wearing. But do you wear a mask when you go into a business? If I, go into the if I go to a business that has a sign up that says, please amass all wear masks when I go in the courtesy to the business But in all fairness I've just limited my shopping experiences or go through a drive up window if I don't want to wear a mask ride order things online. There are plenty of ways you know. If you don't want to wear a mask, you don't have to put the business at risk but yes, I do wear a mask. If I, if I go into a place that's requiring one and you know especially now with the governor's mandatory mask order and I say that air quotes just so that I can give this business and cover exactly. But isn't that the unintended consequences we find ways. To shop and go about our daily lives, sometimes at the peril of small businesses because we are shopping online now. But I'm with you if only because I don't WanNa. Get the side is stink guy from people if I'm not wearing a mask. But I do support local businesses in my heart does go out to them. All right.

"Police accountability bill into law some calling this ground, blake breaking historic legislation. Governor police called it a necessary and positive step toward healing, the state's pain and hearing the public's concerns. Now here's what's interesting. Share frame Senate bill to seventeen. Was introduced and passed in a matter of two weeks after being introduced in the days after George, Floyd's May twenty fifth, the death at the hands of police officers in Minnesota this as Denver and other cities across the nation. We're being rocked by protests. Do you believe that this bill was rushed? Yeah this was rush. There's no doubt about that, but I. Don't think the listeners should be fooled that this this bill was written after George Floyd incident this this bill was actually drafted and ready to go in some form, probably the original form that we saw a sometime after the allies McLean incident which happened a year prior down in Aurora and that becomes pretty pretty evident when you start reading the bill and seeing seeing what happened in the in the incident, involving alleged McLean, and some of the reactions through this bill and make no mistake. There are some parts of this bill that they make absolute sense, but there are a lot of parts of this bill that. Is Not good for the community or for law enforcement all right, so let's start with the latter. What is not good for the community and law enforcement? Honestly this this this bill creates a situation where it causes officers to hesitate to to engage because you're taking away a factor called qualified immunity and and asking officers to make exactly perfect decisions when they're going into situations that are very unpredictable and and the way that that occurs is is. Legislate this legislation opens officers up to be personally sued for for. A violation of someone's State Constitutional Rights Know that sounds valid, that sounds like something that that the should be on the books, but again when you walk in the shoes of a police officer, who's making decisions and split seconds, and then understanding that hey, what what he perceived at that given time may not be what actually occurred and now he or she may be liable in a state civil civil. Civil Rights, trial and taste, personal damages against them personal financial damages. It's just it's tough. It's hard. It's hard legislation to read. It's even harder for the for the average person understand, and I don't think a lot of people understand what that trickle down. Effect is going to look like as as they as they see law enforcement change in their community. Now State Senator John. Cook Former Weld County. Sheriff Ads I can't in this bill, but he told me. That when he first saw a Senate bill to seventeen, he was pro quote pretty disgusted. Saying the way it was introduced, I was one hundred percent against it. I referred to it as the anti law enforcement bill was punishment and revenge. That's what the bill was all about, but he along with. Republican Bob Gardner. were able to get their hands into it and that led to them being able to actually support it. So how did it change from its initial draft? Well. Initially the bill was very anti law enforcement and to a degree. It still is essentially the the first draft of the bill put an officer on the hook for one hundred thousand dollars worth of damages, and they could seek. No, they could seek no coverage from insurance. They could not be indemnified by their by their parent agency by the Police Department by the sheriff's Office they. They were on the hook for any financial damages, personally out of their pocket for up to one hundred thousand dollars Cook in our senator, cooking and Senator Gardner were able to amend that part of the bill or get an amendment to the bill that reduce that penalty down to twenty, five thousand, and then allowed an agency to indemnify their officers for that twenty five thousand. So, it's more palatable. It's still not great We opened up a whole new realm for litigation to occur in the state of Colorado It's something that responsible law enforcement will figure out how to work through, but it will cause us do police or differently well with all the calls across the country for defunding disbanding law enforcement with my very humble opinion would result in well. Community's looking like Chaz or chop or whatever they wanted to call it. Are you seeing the impact locally on recruitment retention and increase retirements not to mention morale. Well some morale. Right off the bat. There were a lot of officers that were kind of walking around in a daze trying to figure out how this bill was going to impact them. Here in Weld County. The commissioners have agreed to indemnify officers who act in good faith and charged criminally for one of these civil judgments, so that that created a lot of stability in my agency as far as that factor goes, but you know locally regionally. Yeah, there's a lot of talk about folks looking for folks, law enforcement, looking for a different career paths, or you know trying to figure out how they can navigate. These new waters like I said. We're in a pretty unique place here at the sheriff's office, but that's that's not. Not Necessarily, the case and law enforcement agencies around the state It's going to be tough times I. Don't know what the next year or two we're going to look like, but I think people who are on the front edge of their career. GonNa say you know what I'd rather just go. Do else and people who are on the tail in are GonNa. Go you know I I'm just going to retire now or I'm Gonna I'm gonNA preserve that retirement while I can and and pull the plug It's GonNa. Be It's GonNa be a tough road. It's a sad set statement, because just like any other profession. You're going to have a few bad apples in the bunch, but you don't throw out the entire orchard and to that point. That you and the work of your colleagues is very very much appreciated. Thank you and you know I I can tell you as a law enforcement officer. There's no one that hates a bad cop more than. but some agencies are just as responsible for how. Assure this legislation in by not taking care of those bad apples if law enforcement doesn't get rid of the bad ones than you expect for legislation like this to come along to force us to do that and I. Unfortunately, that's where we're at home. Well County. Sheriff Steve Brings. Thanks so much for all your time this morning. Certainly appreciate it. Look Radio Seven, thirty now thirteen ten KF KFI.

"And please no your not alone. I know things are a little bit Wackadoo match. I've right now. They're weird aren't they? It's all surreal. This has a governor. Jared Polis did indeed issue that stay at home order for the state Joining about fourteen other states at last count this in an effort to stop the spread of Cova nineteen eighty eight now thirteen ten. Kfi Thirteen ten KFI K. A. DOT COM mornings with Gail local field by great western petroleum. Joined this morning by weld. County Sheriff Steve Reams share frames. Good Morning Good Morning Gail. How're you doing well? All things considered but it's a lot. Isn't it boy? That's an understatement. Yeah I mean I've ever thought we'd be We'd being a state like this and I. I mean that figuratively and literally. Yeah sometimes I go home after the show and I can't I it's like I can't believe the words that are coming out of my mouth. It's like we're in a bad movie really bad movie Let's say feeless movie best. This is This is an interesting time. You know we have. We have A fight I guess if you want to call it that against the thing that we can't see and we can identify in a virus and You Know I. I understand that some kind of efforts have to be taken to try to slow this thing down or you know deal with the potential epidemic pandemic. Whatever you WANNA call it but As the president said many times over we have to be careful that the the solution isn't worse than the problem so You know this. This is a very interesting thing so I was talking to your partner in crime awake. Can I say that to a Sarah? Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith this morning and I related the story to Kim that you and I were texting back and forth as I'm watching you know just all the Stay at home orders. That were coming out at the county level across the State Mountain right as Larimer County announced. Its order I said to you. Oh well there goes. Labor County. Couldn't help but thinking That weld county was next but Governor Police of course issued the statewide Stay at home order but it does beg the question because when counties institute a stay at home order that gives you some flexibility above and beyond the state order right well so your your county order or your city order can be more restrictive than Than whatever the governor issues issued by state but it can't be less restricted. It's kind of like when you're writing a municipal ordinance. It can be more restrictive than state law but it can't be less restrictive. So that's Kinda the problem like you know. Even if Larimer County said you know they put together whatever there rules going to be for their Shelter in place. Whatever they wanted to call it if if the governor's orders are more restrictive than that than they have to call. The governor's orders so basically what governor police did was made gate anything that that isn't As restrictive as his orders Now the county does not have a shelter in place order in fact right not as a county. No but I mean at this point. We're all under the course of course Talk a little bit about enforcement of that. You know I have no idea what that even Looks like I mean you know honestly when you go through the order Essentially what it's focused at is any business that's you know quote unquote non essential and then they're all listed out so I guess if you're a clothing store or sporting goods store that doesn't also sell firearms and a lot of those things start to get shut down as a business but as a consumer. If you're a person who needs to go somewhere you're still going to go somewhere. If you need to go buy groceries go buy groceries. You GotTa Buy Gas if I guess and as a law enforcement guy I don't have the time or resources or desire to try to go out and monitor traffic flow out in the county. The figure out if what someone's doing is legitimate or not I mean that's I don't think anybody would want US using our resources for that. It's truly a it's GonNa take voluntary compliance for this thing to have any any impact and you know most people I believe probably will voluntarily comply but To that point. I don't think we're going to spend a lot of resources trying to find out if everyone truly is doing. Just that could be argued though. The lack of voluntary compliance led to this clamp down by so many states across the country. You know there's there's that argument You know I guess. The question is how this all works. Because you know we're talking about well. People are still out in the parks having picnics. Or You know. Someone is having a pickup volleyball game at the same time. We're keeping daycare centers open. You know I can't think of a place where you have more transference of germs that in a daycare center. But you know those aren't getting shut down. I mean the logic behind. It is what I'm struggling with. I I I just don't understand how something gets classified as essential or nonessential essential. Especially when you're talking about pot shops and liquor stores and you know trust me. I like to have a drink on occasion. I'm not sure that's an essential thing to me. Well you know it was kind of interesting though because I'm sure you're well aware when Denver Mayor Hancock issued that City and county shelter in place. Stay at home order. He did not include pot shops and liquor stores. So there were there. Were videos of lines of going around argonaut liquors and I'm thinking great. There's no social distancing whatsoever and you know you look at that and I mean honestly we were talking this morning. I was talking with my undersheriff this morning about we have just said that someone selling dope from the sidewalk. Marijuana from the sidewalk is an essential service in the state of Colorado. Yeah we used to go out and look for people doing because they were drug dealers and we try to arrest them now. That's an essential thing here in the state of Colorado. I mean you know it's like we're living in an alternate universe right now true that true that. But as being a very staunch second amendment proponent glad to see gun shops are considered essential. Yeah you know that was. That was a smart. Move on the governor's part and I think it's a smart move for You know the citizens of the state of Colorado to still have access to firearms and ammunition for those firearms. I I think during a time like this. You know whether there's civil unrest or potential rioting looting anywhere You know people want to be prepared for for the absolute worst and you have to give them the opportunity to do that. I think closing gun shops would cause more of an issue than than marijuana and liquor stores but you know here we are exactly the territory to be sure so. Where do you see all this going? Well you know. I think the orders in place until April eleventh. If I'm not mistaken eleventh yeah at least you know. I guess the numbers will tell. I think If the numbers start dropping in another week or so you know people will go. Okay I can see the light at the end of the tunnel but if the numbers don't decrease and you know we still keep seeing these rates of infection go. I think that's going to cause a lot of a lot of concern for folks that are already at home saying well. Gosh how much more restrictive can they get? And I don't know that they can be any more restrictive so then the question is going to be there. Aren't we sitting at home? You know or you know if this gets extended you know. How much longer can I sit at home? People have to make a living. You know you you have to be able to earn that dollar so you go out and buy groceries that you need. And if you're not in that essential category this is this is a really tough situation well and believe you me. I am struggling as are many others with this. Basically clamping down on our liberties and our freedoms are freedom to assemble for example. I believe right now. We need to get past the immediate crisis and that's a conversation to be had for another time. Absolutely you know there were some legislators a couple of years ago That actually tried to run a bill talking about what the authority would be of the Governor. During one of these crisis times you know if he declared an emergency declaration. How much authority would he have? Because what you're speaking to you right now is exactly right. I mean a lot of our constitutional freedoms right now don't feel like constitutional freedoms simple You know comes to mind and you know that there has to be balance. I understand there's public safety issues but our public health issues but this just doesn't feel like The America that we all know and love no no far from it to be sure well county sheriff. S Steve Rooms How're you and your colleagues Keeping safe what we're doing the best we can You know we're washing our hands more so than I think. Anyone's ever understood pruning minor holidays. We have been through a meat grinder standard. So our deputies are taking all the necessary precautions. You know we We're doing what we can. We fully understand that. We're kind of in the you know in the sights of this thing and There's an absolute chance that some of our folks will get infected in and the county has taken great steps great provision to to help those employees if they are to get infected to You know have the resources they need to to get through that time to get into recovery and getting back to work Without depleting all their all their normal benefits packages. So there's a lot of. There's a lot of work going on to make sure that we can keep The continuity of our government going But at the end of the day you know we're we're in a high risk job in law enforcement and and it's just kind of one of those things we all understand. I don't WanNa see any of my employees get sick. I don't ever want to see him. Get hurt but You know the likely it is that some of them will get sick and you know. I'm probably just as apt to be in that category but we'll get through it and we'll continue to do the work that needs to be done in this agency. And I think that's the way most law enforcement Urgency services folks are looking at it. You know it's just what we have to do. You don't get to go home you don't you don't and it truly is your interaction with the public with the citizens occupational hazard he just. You know there's this you can't get away from it so okay best advice for all of us because yeah we will get through this. Well you know I think you can always be a victim if you choose to be a victim and you can always have a positive attitude if you choose to have a positive attitude and this is tough time for all of us and there's always a silver lining you know maybe there's a little more time to spend with your kids There's a little time to clean out the garage you know. There's there's all those things that you can get done you've been putting off My wife probably got a list of things that she would love to take care of getting longer Serafin. Absolutely you You just have to make. The Best of the situation ran and and hope for recovery on the other side. I mean. I think we're all in this together in Weld. County has a way of coming together during these times of crisis. And you know keep a level head and do your very best understand that Law Enforcement is as in the same boat with you. We're all GONNA try to get through this As a team alone together together alone whatever. The case may be well county. Sheriff Steve Reams thank you so much for all that you do and all that law enforcement does particularly now on such uncertain times topsy turvy to be sure and be safety.

"Norma Lopez was her name. She was walking home from school. She just disappeared and five days later, they found her body on the field, and they got their man. Yeah. County sheriff Riverside County sheriff a supervising detective at the time said he didn't go home for a week. When this little girl went missing I said being a cop and being a dad, this is everyone's worst nightmare. And obviously, it is interesting angle here. The Riverside County DA says they still might go for the death penalty despite newsome's moratorium, which makes a lot of said well because the more touring ends as soon as newsome's out of office if someone's on death row, the new governor can say repeat reprieve is done. Everybody's back on track. You can I think you mention a reprieve is we're just holding it off. Oh, I think I'm right on that one. And it's money if any is this costing the state, oh, always costs a fortune everything millions of dollars to to see a death penalty through. Oh, for sure hundreds of billions of dollars if you count the number of people were actually executed per person. It's several million dollars between the appeals the automatic appeals. Where if he is convicted or if he's given simply life imprisonment without possibility parole. That's it state has done that. I mean on the retrieval of all these. So now something will change in their throw some changes. I feel back. I don't think I think they still stick on death row. They just what excuse me with the governor did is simply say, we're we're not going ahead with death penalty. He can't overturn the death penalty that's up to the legislature. So all he can do he can commute. And I doubt he's gonna commute seven hundred and fifty something. Death row inmates. Once he commutes the sentence, then they're off death row. And he didn't go that far. He reprieved let's take a quick break and we'll come right back. Alright.
