"Schmidt dot org. It's morning edition on WNYC I'm Michael hill. 6 years, that's how long it's been since an off duty New York City police officer shot an unarmed man during a late night road rage incident in Brooklyn. The shooting is now approaching the last stages of review. WNYC Samantha max looked into why it takes so long for these types of cases to reach a final resolution. Victor Dempsey has watched the surveillance video of an off duty police officer shooting his brother in slow motion. Poured over freeze frames of his brother's every move. Dissected the footage each way he could think of to make sense of that moment. I noticed some folks think that the job me crazy, but I've watched that video well over well over a 100,000 times easily. NYPD officer Wayne isaacs shot Dempsey's older brother, delroy small, in July of 2016. The cop claimed he fired the shots in self defense. After the man allegedly yelled at him for cutting him off, threatened him and punched him through his car window. But security footage that came out a few days later showed small falling over and running away almost immediately after approaching the officer's vehicle. Dempsey has spent the past 6 years trying to prove that his brother shouldn't have been killed. For me, my grief was in the lie, I guess. You know what I mean? My grief was proven everybody wrong. And I wasn't grieving for my brother's loss because I had to show everybody to even get the attention on to get people to understand that this was murder. I had to prove that they lied. The details were murky from the start. Dempsey remembers the confusion of the night his brother was killed. All the calls and text messages from family, racing to the scene with so many questions running through his mind. Walking past his brother's body, not even realizing he was there. And then, learning it had been a member of law enforcement who had pulled the trigger. The officer was charged with second degree murder and first degree manslaughter. Through a special unit in the state attorney general's office that had recently been created to prosecute killings by police. But the jury decided not to convict, and Dempsey's family has been stuck in limbo ever since. It's been rough to be honest. I don't think any family should have to fight year after year after year after year. Just to get a sense of some measure of accountability. It's incredibly rare for law enforcement to face criminal consequences for killing someone. According to Bowling Green state university's police crime database. Philip stinson runs the database and is a leading researcher on the topic. If you or I went out tonight and shot and killed somebody and said, you know, it was a road rage thing or something like that. The police would start with a set of assumptions that would start with this is a criminal homicide investigation, right? And if they knew they were shooter, we might be we might be arrested right away, right? But when an officer kills someone stinson says, it's different. The assumption from the start is that the killing was justified. That the officer did it to save their life, or someone else's. Stinson says that makes prosecutors hesitant to take cases to court. And in the few instances when they do, juries can be tough to convince. They're often very reluctant to second guess the split Second Life or death decisions of even an off duty police officer in a potentially violent street encounter. And that's what you have here. When officers are acquitted in court and cleared by the department, there can be one more test of culpability through the civilian complaint review board. The city agency investigates complaints against NYPD officers, but the process can be slow, especially when police kill someone. First priority goes to the criminal case. Next, the police department does its own review, and then the CRB can take one last look, not to find evidence of a crime, but to see if the officer violated any policies. It's a different question than whether the officer committed a crime. Daniel boda spent about 7 years as an investigator at the CCRB in the early 2000s. Now he researches police misconduct for a criminal justice reform think tank. Isaac's was acquitted at trial that does not borrow the CCRB from making a finding of administrative misconduct excessive force. In violation of the patrol guides, just a different question with a different standards proof. The CCRB launched an investigation in 2018 and recommended disciplinary charges against Isaac's in 2020, but for years, the process was stuck, until a couple months ago, when the new police commissioner and the mayor agreed to let the case move forward. The next step would be an administrative trial, which the officers union tried to block. A judge sided with the CCRB. Now the agency is waiting to find out if they can access the criminal file for their case. It's still possible that after 6 years, isaacs could stay on the force without any discipline. But he could be fired following a CCRB trial. Like the officer who killed Eric Garner. What it really comes down to is that the CCRB is sort of left at the end of the line. And not invited to participate until the last stages of the process. The Garner case is a perfect example of how when nothing else happened to CCRB came in and it was because of what the CCRB did that Daniel pantaleo was fired. Victor Dempsey hopes that's what happens in his brother's case. He's ready for 6 years of court dates and protests to be over. It's been tough for his family. It does something to you emotionally. But I think. I guess it made a stronger in a sense, right? It made us stronger in a sense of, now we understand this world of advocacy. Now we understand what it takes to hold the government agency as big as NYPD's police force accountable. But Dempsey doesn't plan to stop trying. With fighting for accountability, I can't get my brother back. I can't. The reason I still do this work is so other families don't get the call on that we got. The officer's union says the CCRB has nothing new to add to the case. Samantha max, WNYC news.

"The break there is. It's not that. I'm frustrated that congress just passed a law almost unanimously to make a juneteenth. A national holiday is okay. Like i'm i'm okay with that like i'm okay. The juneteenth is a national holiday. But when congress not even by like a slim margin like juneteenth was made a national holiday. Damn near unanimously. But we can't even pass voting rights legislation police violence legislation by a slim margin of victory. It it serves to kind of frustrate everybody to say okay. We were demanding. These ninety nine things and juneteenth was not one of them and you gave us juneteenth like all right. I'm june team should be a national holiday. That's okay but it literally was not one of our ninety nine means it was. It is not an was not on anybody's top ten list. I don't think he was in anybody's top twenty five list in for it to kind of be. The main thing that congress has done to address the needs and demands of african americans in this country is what has infuriated a lot of people. And i saw a lot of a brilliant thoughts post about this over the past few days just to say what we were really asking from. You was a b. nc and you gave us juneteenth as a national holiday is line. We were already celebrating that. You know like we didn't need necessarily even for you to do that. Okay that you have. But i have something today that i think is an easy victory and and i don't mean that as hyperbole. I'm not trying to box. Joe biden into a corner here. I have something that i think. Earnestly would be an easy victory for joe biden. He's been in office for six months. He campaigned on the families. Almost eighty years old. He campaigned on the fact that he didn't need any on the job training. All of his nominees for the doj have now been confirmed. That was as you may recall. A big sticking point for joe biden. He was saying like. Hey there's a lot of stuff. I want to do with the doj but a lot of mine. Nominees haven't been approved yet. They've all been approved. And there's one thing that joe biden in the deal. Jay could do right here right now. Today that would earn some true respect. Yes for the black voters who put this man into office and no no single voting block and people say well. Why do you say that because other people vote for biden other than just black voters no single black voters voted more for joe biden than voters over ninety percent of all black. Voters voted for joe biden. It's not even close. When you look at any other single group of voters he literally would not be president without black voters even if his black support went down in any significant way. He wouldn't be president right now. We'd be dealing with a second trump term. I don't agree with the notion. That in american policing there are a few bad apples. I don't agree with that idea. I i reject the concept. That in american policing there are a few bad apples. I sincerely earnestly believe that. The entire orchard is rotten that the fruit itself is rotten to the core. Policing is not a few bad apples away from being healthy. The core concept of policing in america is incredibly unhealthy and rotten and dangerous and poisonous in problematic. I do not agree with the concept. That american policing just has a few bad apples and and the concept in essence is this ninety. Nine percent of all police are good. What we're dealing with is the one percent that are deeply problematic. I don't agree with that concept but just for the sake of illustration momentarily. I'll say okay. Okay i hear what you're saying. One percent of all police are bad apples. So my challenge back to you. Let me hand back to you. What you've given to us my challenge to. You is hold the bad apples accountable since you said they're only a few bad apples. Hold them accountable right now. With your doj. Joe biden merrick garland and others hold the bad apples accountable. And since there's not a statute of limitations on murder in this country you could go back a hundred years or fifty years or twenty five years or ten years. But hold them accountable. Arrest the officers. Who murdered tamir rice. Arrest the officers. Who murdered for landau. Casteel all sterling and terrence crutcher. Arrest the officers. Who killed eric garner. Tell me how. Eric garner civil rights were not violated. Tell me break that down for me. Explain that to me. I want to hear that you telling me going. Rights were not violated. If george floyd civil rights were violated eric garner. Civil rights were violated. Show me how they weren't charge. The officers who murdered eric garner charge the officers who killed jordan edwards liqun mcdonald charge them issue civil rights charges against each and every one of them. Show us that. You actually care incense you. Joe biden biden administration. Since you are operating under theory of bad apples prosecute the bad apples show me prove it. Charge the bad apples. and i. i have a thorn in my side on this issue. I have something that is deeply irritating me on this issue. The obama administration allowed dozens of police violence cases that were under their watch including the tamir rice case in the eric garner case all the way through the alton sterling and terrence crutcher philander custodial cases. Those murders happened in the some. The last summer of obama's presidency but tamir rice was murdered. When obama's died two years left in office. Eric garner was murdered. When obama still had two years left in office. Show me since you allow those cases instead of just closing them or filing charges on them. You allow those cases to be passed over to open bigots in the trump administration including the first attorney general jeff sessions and others. Who would never prosecute police since you did that. Reopened those cases reopened the tamir rice case against officer timothy lohman reopen. That case reopened the eric garner case against daniel. Pantaleo do that. Reopen those cases prosecute those officers prosecute the officer who murdered alton sterling and for landau casteel terrence crutcher. Show us how serious you are otherwise. Frankly i don't believe you you can't tell us. There are only a few bad apples. The new.

"Too, as well. Tonight's debate comes as New Yorkers are rapidly emerging from a once in a lifetime pandemic and slowly confronting many questions about the future of our city, including concerns about the economy and the balance between crime fighting and police reform. It also comes as a fierce primary is underway among Democratic candidates, and although the majority of registered voters in our city are Democrats, there are more than half a million Republicans as well, and politicians running on that ballot line have served as mayor for 20 of the last 27 years. Joining me tonight. In my questioning are the co moderators Brian Lehrer of W. N. Y C radio and jealous of Alaska's of the city due to the pandemic. The two candidates will be joining us remotely tonight. They are Fernando Matteo and Curtis Lee. Well, welcome candidates. Now the rules that you see on your screen now have all been agreed to by the candidates. Each candidate will get a chance to deliver an opening statement of 45 seconds or less. Answers to our questions will be limited generally to 60 seconds, Candidates may be given a chance for short rebuttals and the candidates will get to ask each other a question in our cross examination round we're going to start with opening statements. The order of tonight's opening statements was determined by a random drawing and so will begin with Curtis. Leave a good evening. Thank you out. I've been founder and leader of the Guardian Angels, providing safe streets and safe subways here in New York City and in cities around the world for 42 years. Don't march 15th. I decided that I had to run for mayor to refund the police tow, hire more police and to make sure we keep the qualified immunity for them. In addition on the on Lee candidate who has said that I will investigate thrive, a program that is already spent one and a quarter billion dollars of our tax dollars and has not helped the helpless souls about their the emotionally disturbed persons who roam the streets in the subways and are needing care, a danger to themselves and everyone else. What I'm most proud of yesterday when we deliver it to the board of Elections, thousands and thousands of signatures for the first ever animal welfare line because as someone who raises 15 rescue cats with my wife, Nancy and the Upper West Side for the first time when I made a New York City will have no kill shelters. We're not killing our friends, Thieves, dogs and catch that a euthanized within 72 hours, So I will crack down on crime that is paralyzing our city as I've done for 42 years. Under compassionate candidate that will care for the emerging emotionally disturbed the homeless and our friends, the cats and dogs who were euthanized now. All right, thank you very much. And now an opening statement from Fernando Matteo. My name is Fernando Matteo. And for the last 30 years, I have done real things to change. Real lives in New York City started in 1989 when I went to Rikers Island, and I taught, trained and found employment for first time nonviolent offenders in 1993 as Rudy Giuliani, the first Republican mayor. That we had 20 years ago came into office. We were able to get thousands of guns off the city streets in 1999. We formed the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, and we save thousands of lives of cab drivers that work our city streets and in 2000 and two we did the same for the bodega owners that were getting shot. Rob looted, murdered. We were able to change the lives of so many people in New York City. I am compelled to run for mayor of New York City because it's the right time. We need a mayor like me. We need a mayor that's going to create change a mayor that's really gonna Tracked down and bring our police department toe where it needs to be bail reform. Defund the police was my opponent's responsibility. He is partly responsible for bail reform and defund the police because he supported and endorsed every single Democrat that voted for those laws. And today we were going to take the mask off his face. And show every Republican out there who the true Republican is here. I don't understand why I have an appointment and an opponent running as a Republican when he's never been a Republican, and that's what New York City needs to know if you want change. You want honest change. You don't want lies. You don't want fabricated stories. You don't want people that are taking credit for things they've never done. And that's why I am running for mayor. And with your blessings. I will be your next mayor of New York. Okay, Thank you. Candidates. I'm going to start with the first question. We're going to begin this debate with the national conversation about policing. This debate, of course, takes place one year after the killing of George Floyd, which triggered demonstrations nationwide, including here in New York. It comes at the same time, though, is homicides are up 22% compared to the first five months of last year, and shootings are up by more than 81% year to date. You've both been vocal about increasing the use of traditional NYPD tactics, including increased subway patrols, gun interception units and the like. You've also been publicly opposed to bail reform and other changes in the criminal justice system. But are there any police reforms that you do support? Let's start with you, Mr Matteo. Support giving the police department the leadership that they need. I support making sure that NYPD has a real leader, someone that's gonna have their backs 100% like I've done for the last 30 years. I've worked hand in hand with NYPD to make sure that we bring crime down and I've been there assisting them when they needed help identifying people that had committed crimes in the city. There's only one leader in New York City, and that's the mayor and them and as mayor, I will make sure that my police commissioner has every authority to make sure they watch out for the rank and file a lot of the times. A police commissioner is appointed. He's afraid of his shadow. He's afraid to back up his men and women with me. I will make sure that my police commissioner stand shoulder to stroll the what? Every man and woman in blue and they get the support that they need to keep our city safe. I will make sure that we have two police officers on every subway platform, creating safe haven train stations of black form so that if anyone in the street needs help, they know that if they run into the subway system, they will find the help that they need. We need to get 1000 more thousands more cops out on the streets. The show a presence to show a presence of respect. Okay, our chiefs our captains are lieutenants are Sergeant will be out on the streets with the men and women that they're serving. Okay, let me let me follow up with that. Mr Potato. For example. Do you think the NYPD commissioner should have fired Daniel Pantaleo over the killing of Eric Garner in 2014? I believe that the police commissioner should have reviewed what happened. And if he felt that there was mist that the conduct was inappropriate, he should do what he has to do. I will make sure that the police commissioner Thoroughly investigates whatever crimes are committed by cops or against cops. As far as I'm concerned, we have a great police department. We have a department that has done the right thing for decades. In this city off course you're going to get one or two bad apples. You get them out of the way. You make sure that your police department Engages with the community engages with the kids engages with the small businesses, and they become a presence. They become partners in New York City with with the small business with the with the different communities. Okay, let's let's bring in. Mr Mrs Lui has something to say here. Wow. What revisionism when the NYPD closed your club? Marina in Washington Heights. After all the complaints about drug dealings, crime on the presence noise, you publicly said on hot 97 the morning radio program that all those cops responsible for that they should have their heads cut off light.

"So that's so that's what we got going on here. But last point i wanted to talk about so we talked about one side of the aisle doing Doing a one one segment of the population who is Where are just just disrespecting. Slowing down in my estimation the progress which any type of comprehensive police reform And then we've got people on the political spectrum here who can't seem to get anything done. Who are arguing and arguing about about trump. and they don't want to ban this in one of the biggest arguments that they're having particularly on the federal level When they talk about the george floyd act and all that is of. Is this idea wrong qualified immunity. I'm not going to bore anyone with with that. You guys can look that up for yourself. But i think there's a lot of misunderstanding when it comes qualified immunity while the immunity applies to all also Government worker city state county. Whatever it applies to all of them and they want the the idea is that they want the government to be able to function and not be bogged down with litigation so when and if a person is in good faith doing their job they don't they should not have to be sued for it in the particular case of police officers were this becomes important is is that again. Police officers doing their job and going about everything Should not could not be sued unless there is they could show that the officer did what he did with malicious malice and intent right that willful acts of disregarding a clearly established rules regulations policies procedures and the law. Unless someone can prove that those things were were were were were the standard in with a norm that is how and why When qualified would kick in so unless an officer is doing something willful of the head qualified immunity. They use qualified immunity if they if they were doing something willful qualified. Immunity doesn't apply then it could be sued and arrested now. Would this becomes important. As i had a conversation with elliot specter. Please make sure go. Back in the archives listen to my episodes elliott specter in with Attorney yale bolton themselves former police officers who did the job And they went back to law school and got their law degrees. And now the now. Now there you know practicing law so this becomes important because in elliott specter's time of investigation. He looked at different cases particularly state of connecticut in which qualified immunity or didn't kick it in other words when they had willful when when when the prosecution or defense the renton could prove that the officer did something that was clearly out of establish bounds of the authority so that becomes important. Well let's fast forward now to george floyd incident of course It was not a willful act of wilful intentional murder. But it was reckless right. This is this is where it gets hairy. And this where people want to change and it's fine if they want to change. I just wanted to give understanding of what happens. from the law enforcement perspective So they want to change the standard in in connecticut. I believe new york wants to change their standard as well from from willful. Acts all the way down to Reckless acts in other words. The officers should have known that his actions would lead to serious physical injury and death right or just injury right if you go outside. Your established known policies and procedures and or law than. You should know that these things would occur in my conversation with elliott specter. He himself agreed that the daniel pantaleo situation. I forget the house. Forget the situation in new york. I tokyo eric garner eric garner case that it was an unfortunate situation however he did he did state. That had that Eric brown eric garner Should have That particular case which was difficult because the officer in case daniel pantaleo did not intentionally use malice in order to count. They weren't trying to kill him now. This is where this is where things get harry and this is where i disagree slightly with with Specter and this is why. I think that people want the standard to change right. Okay because long again it's not to be willful and clearly obviously procedures and or the law in that particular case. He violated a policy. The was so it was a willful intentional. Act violent policy. You haven't been trained with this. And in fact not only had not been trained but but the use of Chokeholds in policy procedure in new york had been banned so not only you since the nineties. So this officer. More than likely the gods of the police academy was never told this and had received policy and procedure and training saying. Don't ever use it so and then when he gets into the to the real world outside the classroom. He didn't apply chokehold that he wasn't trained to use in that was banned and then as a result of in using this tactic technique. The person dies and then he don't hold them responsible. And in that respect i agree with public one hundred percent on that He should have been held liable for that. But this is the case in these scenarios that we're dealing with this is why we're we're at the point that we're at by set all that to say this. We can't get anything done because many politicians don't want to get rid of qualified immunity or brought full spectrum. I'm not sure i do either. They want to end for all different people. And i don't. I don't want to end that either. Some states are looking to do that. Some departments of looking to do that. I believe new york state is looking to qualified immunity. It's going to be challenged in court. You have to police officers some type of protection to go out there and do their job as long as they're not after being malicious as long as there if if and when they make good faith accidents and i say that with all respect and deference because i could be victim of an accident tomorrow i could get pulled over tomorrow. We're in a different place. Where they don't know i was a police officer and they just try to start treating me crazy right so And i could lose my life. That's that's a heroin terrifying act but no citizen in the united states should should should think about that when when and if they come in contact with the police that they may lose their life. That is not something. That's not something that we should we should deal with. That is not a fear that we should have a fair that we should have our children at no matter what your race is in this country And so that the thing that that that people suffer from that Is intolerable and we have to fix that. And that's why i'm in favor of a lot of these changes in rules. And everything like that so. I hope that i said light on qualified immunity. I hope the congress can Can get some things done. I hope it states Will follow in line with connecticut and passing some some things that i think you're gonna get through And really look at what they wanna do. We're not talking about inning qualified immunity although some people are talking about inning qualified immunity full brought full spectrum. I can't get with that. You have to give people the ability to make steaks and accidents and not be held accountable and liable as long as those mistakes are actual mistakes. I know it sounds so so harsh to say that it's a mistake. That was someone like when somebody lost their life. You can't undo these mistakes right. We can't apply in racer or some white out to the situation and have go back and go back the other way. Somebody has lost their life. And that is that is that is terrible and tragic also at the same time as many think about the people officers lies people that that they actually save officers actually saved people's lives Think about them if they're scared to do their job and they're not gonna they're gonna. They're going to be scared to do certain things and we can't have that we can't have people jumping up police cars. We can't have people lighting. Dumpster tack attacking places we can't have. There's been an uptick. As i mentioned before in criminal activity shootings a friend of mine who lives in minnesota. Where all the ground zero at had to move out of that community and move his family away from that neighborhood because because the violence had swept it so if we want to we got to think about long and hard about what we're calling for we're asking for and how we go about them. How would we go about that. We've got to develop a better strategy about how we go about Getting these reforms w one without without complete security measures for our communities without Overzealous police officers on the other side. And we got to bring these sides together right. We need security. We need police forces we need security in our neighborhoods so people can walk the streets and we drive around and be safe and secure. We can't have cops. Who are out there define laws and breaking rules and getting away with it either so we gotta come to this nice need balance and i really hope the congress really understands that and so we've got to come to an understanding about what qualified immunity is really have some some some serious hardcore dialogue and discussions about it as many numerous articles out there. There's plenty of loss. Loss scholars out. There we can talk about what it is and how we can bring this about in tweaks and changes according to what it is. I don't have a problem personally with going from willful reckless. Because again in the pens leo case Have known that his accent. We're going to do something and derek chauvin case. He should have known that his actions were going to bring about some type of permanent damage. So i hope. I should light unqualified unity. I hope that. I gave some people some things to think about. If you know people who are out there who out there doing this kind of damage think about the term effects of this and how it slowing down the progress and the changes that we want that we want so much love and peace ladies and gentlemen she rates subscribe inch share. Police reform is more than just a trending topic. My name is lawrence. I'm retired police. Captain from the state of connecticut and everett new book called police reform. I talked about the evolution law enforcement here in america and what changes need to be made in order to improve the relationship between police and the communities that serve over the past few months it's become increasingly more important and more evidence that there's something missing ride between the police and the communities that they serve so whether you're about defunding the police were defending the police. If you're blue lives matter black lives matter. No matter what side of the fence used happened. Sit on make sure that you pick up your copy of police perform today..

"Career opportunities that they have been denied. For far too long. Listeners of phones are open for a mayoral candidate, Maya Wiley, primarily on the topic. Economic recovery meets Economic Justice 646 435 70 to 86 46435 70 to 80. All the other leading candidates will be coming on to talk about this, too. During the month of May we have Scott Stringer scheduled for Wednesday. We'll see if he keeps that date, which was made before the sexual misconduct allegation against him broke, But I have a feeling he will Scott Stringer Wednesday as it stands and then other candidates to per week, more or less the same way we did our ask the mayor tryouts round in April. Candidates per week more or less in the subsequent weeks this month, But today from my wily on post covert economic recovery Meeting Long term economic justice 646435 70 to 86 46435 72. 80 My running and a generally more progressive field than de Blasio did eight years ago. I think it's accurate to say so. How do you distinguish yourself, for example, from Diane Marie Alice, who generally gets reported on as the most progressive candidate. And who you told us last time people people should list second on their rank choice voting ballots if they vote for you first. Yeah, well, you know, Brian, I am someone who is like said it's not only comes out of the activism as family history and this from a family where you know my brother and I knew what a picket line was before we knew what a picnic was. But that as a result, you know, spending my entire career in doing racial justice work in a way that builds multi racial coalition, as I said, also founded an organization when September 11th happened. Had a baby in a bouncy seat on what happened was what always happens in a crisis, which is, you know, the whole city was reeling. We were traumatized. We had job loss, all kinds of issues and the federal government was sending $21 billion. The state on city to invest in our recovery, our economic recovery. But guess who got cut out of the catchment area for those dollars? It was China test and the Lower East side, and that was exactly the kind of government decision making that perpetuates racial inequality. And so I founded with the friend. Another black woman is a political scientist. The center for Social inclusion committed to up ending and we were explicit about calling it out Structural racism. We made it a mission. In 2000 and two at a time when nobody thought that that was a term that anyone would ever use, and now it is become one that we all use, and that's a wonderful and important thing. But I've spent my whole career focused on the solutions. Had actually changed that and actually lift all boats. And, you know, I'm the only candidate in this race that is actually done that inside City Hall. You know, because I was grateful for the opportunity to show the city how we could start to solve the digital divide for real getting the city to see how it could do things that had never done before. So one of the things that I did was I said, Well, I found the money showed the city where the revenue was We that we could deploy and pulled four different agencies together and said, You know what? Because we didn't have a universal broadband Agency of City government. So I got four agencies working together so We got. Ultimately, every single apartment in Queensbridge houses largest public housing development in North America, free broadband paid for by the city and had laid out plans to do that, and every borough now I left in 2016. But I say that it's just a proof point that city government can be so much more transformative. Then it has been, but background s O. The distinction that you're making between yourself and Diane Morality is one of Experience. Do you have any policy differences with her? In the area of economic and and recovery and justice. Well where I have focused. My attention, As I said, is on Capitol construction asses a way to create 100,000 new jobs and target them in the communities that need them. But I've also proposed Universal care economy plan, and this is one which really is a game changer, particularly on one of the top three costs of living in the city, which is child care, but also recognizing that it is women of color, black and Latino been hardest hit. In this pandemic economically because of the loss of care work, and so what I'm going to do is create universal care centers. Starting in the communities again hardest hit so that they were creating union jobs, good jobs in care, and I'm very proud to be endorsed by Sulu 11 99 that represents our essential workers. Who are care givers, home health care givers, as well as nurses and nursing homes. People who are critically important to our communities, but we for far too long have not been caring for the people who care for us. It was part of those community care centers, which would be drop off centers for elder care and child care is grants is $5000 grants to put directly in the park pockets, starting with 100,000 media's families. In order that they can care for themselves and their families and undocumented immigrants will be eligible for those grants. All right, Um, I'm gonna ask you one more question like this because In our previous two rounds of interviews, a carefully avoided asking any of you to compare yourselves to other candidates because I just wanted to let listeners get to know each of you as yourselves, especially at the beginning of the race and also not give too much press to anyone just because they let in the early polls. But now it's getting close and the post keep indicating a clear top to Andrew Yang and Eric Adams. So when it comes to economic justice or anything else, why would you make a better mayor than either of those two in particular? Because you have to catch them If you're gonna win Well, let me just say this. The only person leading in the polls is undecided. Why? It is a why it is a wide open race on. I'm very proud to be the only woman in the top tier this race Now what I will say about what makes me more qualified. Is exactly this. I have spent my entire career as a change maker and as a mother who has raised kids in New York City, who has also been a change maker who's navigated everything from sharing the New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board and getting the case of Daniel Pantaleo, the officer. Who killed Eric Garner over to the New York City Police Department. Protecting civilian prosecution of that case had to fight for behind the scenes eyes..

commissioner bill Bratton good morning to you bill morning Michael so I got to ask you did your friend commissioner o'neill make the right decision in firing officer Pantaleo well obviously Jimmy commercial nail believe she did that he had access to significant amounts of information that's been gathered over the last five years the by the trial judge that went into great detail as to her recommendations so process was one of the I think everybody agrees that took much too long that will be one of the lessons learned going forward the the idea that historically police agencies the poor to the justice department the US justice department on issues involving US civil rights investigations I think this one will be a watershed in that five years justice department could not make a decision that delayed the NYPD Blue report on theirs I think in future years to be less difference the justice department but quite obviously occasional Neil anguish over his decision let you know by that one and that is say is the final say what message bill does it send to other policemen I mean a commission it was saying the chokehold was appropriate the beginning but he held it too long for seventeen seconds I mean seem to send a message to the police beat out he could be really careful when you arrest somebody now well technically that message is always there going back to my days in nineteen seventy joining the Boston police department at a rest the ultimate use of police power other than the use of deadly force and it's something that is always brought with Carol cheekily when that aggression is being resisted it was as it was in this case absolutely led to the awful tragedy in New York state as in many states there is no right to resist arrest and this one certainly have extraordinary tragic consequences for the god family discount certainly but also for panel ale for the department for the city for the nation as it wrestles with this historic problem that is very much in the forefront of very much look for fun over the last few years here in the ark because of the we got a case its resolution of the garner case in the sense of it was an action there was a charge there's been a finding there's a penalty but the issues underlying it all the racial tension the racial discord the country's original sin if you will what remains of apartment has been making great efforts with the support of many communities around the city to try and heal those historical tensions conditionally on particular the irony the neighborhood policing program that he lied about that that pushing very heavily these last so we is is beginning to take hold one of the things that would attempt to address is exactly the situation that the hospital they honestly gonna found themselves in Hopkinsville plaque that morning the idea of a community that wanted something done about major disorder in the in the area drug dealing distorted public drinking public urination they had said enough but as the police to into the sea please send to cedar and unfortunately the result was what with with us for the last five years going forward the the restoring order requires such as police action active which is based but it clearly is a shared responsibility do you have a message to the rank and file and the PBA as you saw was extremely upset there's some talk about job actions slow downs and things like that and obviously they feel put upon now and and and sort of dissed by the commissioner what would your message be to the rank and file today but it's the same one official nails quite pointing out that putting out to them that this was a tragedy for everybody but as New York City police offices as police officers if taken the nose to uphold the law to enforce the law to go to a danger and they will continue to do that I think some of the union comments unfortunate that being betrayed as a call to inaction in courage in offices to slow down if you will some offices may the majority will not the nature of policing often times require is strong assured of action and offices will continue to move toward the calls the service the calls to danger a slowdown serves no purpose because it gives the criminal element in the city a sense of the police aren't going to do anything and if it goes on for a long period of time then please trying to regain control is more difficult effectively a call for a slowdown in action increases the danger and risk June the oxy city police officers because the message will go out the cost of college the cops in cells are free to act well we we already have the situation with the cops having water thrown at them the other day in Brooklyn I actually shots fired whether trying to respond to will call I I think they feel pretty put upon right now and nobody's got their back again and you know in this this comes right after these type of episodes where it seems like this kind of behavior was tolerated well that's exactly the point I'm making the I. dear they do not feel that they are being supported the judge for example on one of the arrest was made in that melee a book from the other evening the the prosecutor in book one was not been particularly supportive of the police and the police are respected I recommend the ten thousand dollar bail according to the article I saw in the paper this morning and the the judge in that case basically put the the young man into a diversion program she didn't accept the bail recommendation from a district attorney's office who very seldom recommends bail in mostly focuses on the version this case he did not show it correct that is not a great deal of support on the criminal justice reform movement on the part of a number of Jie's water judges and cops understand that but the idea here is they still have to go out and do their job do it legally constitutionally within the guidelines and policies as if they don't then their job becomes even more dangerous to them and to the public as a whole that's just the reality of it Joe might be a B. H. H. slow down as it was back in two thousand fourteen during the tragic deaths of boxes the detective of the salute probably likely will there be a vote of no confidence informational nail in the mail almost guarantee but the as time goes on all this will basically be behind them in some respects as relates to this issue but the underlying problem is still there that yesterday was not a resolution it was with a basically a the swatch will particular incident at a particular time but the underlying issues many of which you just raging terms of officer concerned about not being supported at the ironically after three straight years of crime decline in the city which was largely brought about by the NYPD working with the ace that working with the community but largely the direct result of their actions and their sacrifices all right former New York police commissioner bill Bratton thanks for your thoughts thoughts bill we appreciate it okay all of us Michael good morning take care bye
