Protesters rallying in Seattle as cop in George Floyd's death faces trial for murder

"Is on track to begin just a few hours from now on the trial of Derek Chauvet show opens. The former Minneapolis police officer picture here charged in the killing of George Floyd kneeled on Floyd's neck for more than nine minutes. Jury selection was supposed to begin today, but prosecutors fought for a delay until an appeal over reinstating a third degree murder charges resolved. The judge says selection will get underway tomorrow unless the higher court stops of Chopin pleaded not guilty to second degree murder and manslaughter charges. Ah third degree murder charge requires a lower standard of proof to get a conviction. Anti police protesters used the timing of that trial to stage a demonstration in downtown Seattle tonight. Double stroller. Marino's live with the group's message and the movement that trying to build Joel Mary. Instead of smashing windows and tagging businesses, these protesters relied on signs chance and passionate speeches to call for a complete overhaul of the Seattle Police Department. You have seen this movie before Justice for George Floyd is something these protesters don't think will be achieved is a trial for the former officer who killed him gets underway. We see these murders in the streets and we see officers get off. We're not holding our breath for a guilty verdict. Jean Smith, with the Seattle Alliance against Racist and Political Repression, says we face the same lack of accountability in Washington state. These activists say What is needed is a top to bottom reorganization of how police departments air run, starting with the formation of a civilian police accountability counsel to oversee all aspects of operations in full control over budget. Policy hiring firing of top level staff and street level officers oversight full access to investigations. These demonstrators say. The problem with current police watchdog agencies is the people who run them are appointed, alliance members say, unlike Seattle's Office of Police, Accountability, or Opa, Their proposal for a civilian counsel would be an elected board. So it answer directly to the community. There's a lot of cops on board on the opiates, so it's cops watching cops, which isn't great for accountability. Well, These demonstrators do not have a specific timeline to get the legislation out for these civilian oversight boards. They say they plan to hold more rallies. Get their message out peacefully.

The economic impact of COVID-19 pandemic on Seattle

"Cast your mind back. I remember talking with you soon after the pandemic started. And you were describing looking out of your window and seeing hardly anybody on the street where what. He's seeing right now today. Well we have more activity than that there. There are some office. Workers are back that are back of course essential workers. There are things that are open today that we're not open a month ago. Museums like the seattle art museum and wing luke The pike place market has been just a great bright spot through all of this. They've never closed. They've had to adjust plenty. So that's a note of activity and usually it's a lot of tourists there. It's mostly locals that are coming from other neighborhoods in seattle downtown. So there's activity downtown. But we sure want more genders more activity but still i mean. The pandemic did take a major toll on downtown businesses. Can you give us a nutshell. Just what happened over the last year. Yes we all know. Downtowns are all about bringing people together and in a pandemic to stay apart for good reason so this pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on urban areas in our country and downtown seattle. Certainly and so. We've had one hundred sixty small businesses that have permanently closer restaurants and retailers office. Occupancy has been below twenty percent over the last couple of months of folks who are showing up at least a few days in their office during the week. Hotel occupancy is still hovering at twenty percent or below in some weeks and our major venues arts culture performance live music venues have have been shuttered for the most part throughout this period so this has been devastating economically to our downtown into downtown's across the country because when you're all about bringing people together a pandemic has significant impact on on how you function and that's what we've seen john. We are still dealing with this pandemic. we haven't turned a corner quite yet but it does seem that most adults who want a vaccine will be able to get one in the next few months. What could that mean for. The future of downtown really is a game changer and we. We have such a clear line of sight on the pace of vaccinations and win. A majority of adults in our community are going to be vaccinated because of the recent approval of the johnson and johnson vaccine. So it's going to allow office workers to return at some level here Early in the summer late spring. We're talking to employers and companies that are that are making those plans now and it's going allow for leisure travel to resume at higher levels throughout our country in seattle can compete really well for the domestic leisure travel business which we believe is going to be sort of the first type travel to return likely before business travel and likely before international travel. People are dying to get out. We want him to come to seattle so office. Workers in leisure travelers and the seattle. That maybe hasn't been downtown in the last year. We want to invite them back. There's plenty of that is open today and more to come. So that's where we're focused. Some folks are speculating. That this pandemic has forever changed. The nature of work and that many employees may simply work from home indefinitely which could mean way fewer people shopping and dining downtown. Are you worried about that potential shift. I do believe the office and work does get recalibrated but the office isn't going away by any means but it mean that some folks might work from home owners days a week. That's generally what the research in surveys. Both in our own community around the country are saying so. The office in the downtown still has an important role to play. When it comes to work and collaboration in shaping a company an organization's culture i do think it gets a re recalibrated doubt. So recalibrate it. If you've got fewer workers around who else possibly could be drawn down to the core to to kind of make up for the for the flow of energy that used to be there. We'll we're investing still record levels in in housing in downtown so more than seven thousand. Units of housing are currently under construction. Were connecting our city to downtown in ways that are going to help people to take a train from northgate in just a few months. That comes every couple of minutes right into downtown. So there's there's new ways to get downtown. We're significantly in housing. And then we're investing in generational infrastructure projects like the waterfront park and a great new arena seattle center. So there's going to be new things to see inexperienced downtown that weren't here prior to this pandemic and there's going to be lots of new businesses that come in into spaces that were vacated by businesses that had to close through this pandemic so this plenty to look forward to new investments new experiences that we're not here prior to this pandemic and we want to celebrate those in addition to everybody that made it through this pandemic and that's able to reopen. Is there a scenario where you might see that. The downtown doesn't recover. And what would that look like. And what would that mean. There's a lot at risk here. And i don't think we can take anything for granted and every great city has a great downtown. I haven't been to a great city without a thriving core in as a as a city here in seattle in a community. We we've made a big bet on a healthy thriving downtown. We've passed many levies to invest in families and education universal pre-k low income housing and a great park system that is betting on a healthy economically. Vital downtown so we have a lot at stake on what happens on these three square miles of land for the entire city and really the entire region. So we've got to get this writing. We can take nothing for granted.

It's because of those easterly Cascadia wins downtown there at about eighteen to twenty. Miles per hour. Look at what that does to the humidity. Drives it way down. It's a real dry warmth out there to humidity. Just at twenty two percent up in the cascade foothills. It's just ripping through those gaps and funneling into the communities below eaten Bill gusting into the mid thirties where you've been seeing gusts to nearly forty miles per hour in northbound and back toward enough claw. So another really windy night in the cascade. Foothills right now satellite and radar picture. All emptied out our temperatures anywhere from the forties. Kind of chilly tonight in Bellingham into Olympia to on up into the low sixty s like around the Long Beach peninsula. So the reason we're seeing such record warmth. The same reason we usually do that one two combo big ridge of high pressure over the top of us and gusty Cascadia offshore wins, the northeasterly wind direction tends to warm us up and dry out. It's usually responsible for our heatwaves. And it definitely took us again this afternoon overnight lows eventually dropping into the thirties and some of the chili pockets in the south sound, but what a beautiful story overnight Tuesday looks just about as warm as it was today with mid seventies and loads essentially yet again. Easily warm enough for some more records to fall around the sound back into the mid seventies. Around L Pacific will also see sunshine in mid seventies in Snohomish county, sixty five around fort Worden back to about seventy tomorrow. So a little bit warmer into Bellingham mid s again around realto beach and seventy four for Castlerock eastern, Washington. Dealing with a lot of melting snow is mainly in the fifties. If not the sixties there in Moses Lake and speaking of melting snow all of a sudden, we're very warm over the cascades mid s across the passes later tomorrow. What about for the first day of spring and the first weekend of spring looks a little bit different than what we're seeing right now all the rest of the forecast coming up. All right.

And Morgan what we say incident response to these are those trucks that we see often on the side of the road, helping the disabled. Cars, right. Yes. They are that we have about twenty seven trucks out because of the closure of S ninety nine and they're out on the road, and they're working extended shifts and nobody's on vacation. Everybody's in working and they're out roving the roadway, and they work with the state patrol. And if anything happens or breaks down there responding quickly to the scene you mentioned twenty-seven now that number is up because of the viaduct closure. You put more trucks out there. In other words, right? Yes. We did everyone Alvar trucks are out. And when somebody would normally work say eight hour shift are now working twelve hour shifts. I think it's it's key to understand. I mean, I think you really do understand the importance of these trucks when you find out what they're able to do in the amount of time. They do it in. I mean, these trucks are are responsible for preventing miles long backups, in some cases. Yes, our goal is to clear the road very quickly and to make the roadway safe. So by clearing the road, very fast that we don't get the backups, and then we don't get the rear end collisions at start to occur in the backup. So we make it safe for everybody.
