Police Data Reveals Stark Racial Discrepancies in Social Distancing Enforcement Across New York City
"But this pandemic has highlighted New York struggles with longstanding issues that are among the worst we face and that's what we're going to discuss today early this month over one gloriously beautiful weekend new Yorkers of all walks of life poured outside filling the city's parks hang out on sidewalks saying hello to friends and neighbors and not always standing six feet apart the images that emerge from that weekend were striking on social media they were pictures of a lawn and one New York City park credit with people mainly white folks who are not socially distance and there was a video of violent arrest of an African American man who went to the hospital because of injuries sustained during an incident by Monday of last week there were new calls to release the data on arrests made for social distancing violations and on Friday the NYPD did release the numbers and they show that eighty one percent of all the arrests were of African American and Latin next voters and your car's public average money Williams was one of those who call for the arrest and summons data to be released he joins us now to talk about policing in New York during a corona virus outbreak Jumanji welcome to all of it thanks for having me appreciate so the dad of the NYPD released last week was for all the rest since the stay at home orders were issued in mid March how long had you and community leaders been asking for the data on social distancing arrest to be released what we reached out to the mailbox seven weeks ago a soul mate six saying that the focus on arrests and summonses we're going to re exacerbate historic problems and we actually gave it a completely different plans that could be executed of course we got a list of all three weeks ago we thought well this data because we started getting all information are about there are desperate district important added value I figure that'll be that Bob when they first initially ignored us and one finally got the gala it was astonishing to me ninety two percent of arrests black and brown sixty percent black in Brooklyn forty people arrested thirty five a black for black America thank you mention to some of the rest was was pretty appalling to complement a ministration we actually got elected because they said they were gonna do police in different what had you advocated for then that early proposal well even if you go back two months ago one of the main problems that yes city in the state with the governor and the mayor never had a clear message to begin are we start using words like quarantine lockdown but they never did make will never have the government issue you want to call it Paul he's going detente think about it we were construction sites open liquor stores males walking around all day long so we had a muddled message to begin to the extent that we start trying to unify the message we said let's have a holistic community response and so make every city agency involved fire department EMT NYPD sanitation try to get into a ball this call messaging on their vehicles let's have automated messaging will maybe locals are after five found let's get the emergency broadcast involved with the pick on every TV station let's get the cure violence which all groups that deal with violence communities will credible messengers let's get the clergy ball so we can be unified education all these communities but that was rejected and instead what we saw was policing and Chelsea pier people having amassed if anything being if we disturb them at all and then another few minutes people being punched in the face and fall to the ground it was very appalling to reach the same communities that have been ravaged distantly by cold over nineteen to begin again by some of the same people who will focus on what when it came to police you are a vocal critic of stop and frisk policing which also targeted black and Latino voters and it applies here is also opposed how concerned are you about the echoes of stop and frisk here I have been here to be concerned about echoes of over policing and district police what I dealt with the abuse Mustafa question Christopher van but you know even though we can get this abuse of course system and check it doesn't do anything about the over policing happens to black and brown communities so whether it will stop question first obviously broken windows how we didn't social distancing the problem is policing in black and brown communities what public health and public safety meeting black and brown communities what kind of building in the principle of transparency meet indiscriminate this administration has more for in some ways when it comes to transparency and accountability they've actually gone backwards even worse and when Giuliani Bloomberg in certain aspects I must disappoint my guess is public advocate Germany Williams you know there was such outcry on social media and everywhere actually after a video was posted of a violent arrest in the Lower East Side of a of a gentleman Mr Wright who was hospitalized reply zero and usually characterized videos of violent arrest as isolated incidents but he started talk about the need for more consistent enforcement what is consistent enforcement look like to you well first we should start with we don't need to open a conversation with the force and that was the problem the government almost among many things that you probably need to enforce this and that is sadly the mayor didn't take us up on our offer a few weeks ago he seems to be revisiting that and so that click here we also want to make sure we were not using the terminology or mark a mystery like actually is like yours you know the frequency is very small and it's not normal because one we have to stop complaining frequency in normal everyone will tell you that the vast majority of these characters and very well that's a good shake but that doesn't mean that the small amount that doesn't involve that doesn't mean that it's not normal for it to happen in black and brown communities so that is still mobile even if it's the least frequent so we have to be clear about that stop telling people they're not experiencing what they're experiencing and so we want to make sure that before committing it's not the main tool but to the extent you have to involve them like Pete it should be equitable you should be doing the same type of policing in every community so it seems that we know how to police we're just not doing it in every community my guess is public advocates Imani Williams you call for the department of justice to open an investigation into the impact of the corona virus on communities of color what's your end goal with this why did you call for the investigation but I also want to just start out looking for presents Eric Adams in the park if we reached out to thirty five elected officials across the country are all experiencing disparity impact and we said one of the J. to investigate there's nobody left to getting off now we do know who runs your cable we're hoping that the lifelong investigators were there will take you seriously and there's no workplace is not happening then probably New York state in New York City we have quite literally among the worst impact on planet earth and that is not just because of the federal government because of bill the bald eagle and more importantly it because of a governor you calm so what many people see more TV every single day what they don't know what the decisions you're making or not making have been extremely harmful to New York state and New York City and that's why we're seeing among the worst on planet earth and that's why the disparity is there because we do not Christina you can act open up and actually we just never adapted even as we got the information coming before that you have there's one small change you could make or enact tomorrow that you think would have a a big impact what would that be what we have to be honest about where we are the mistakes that we made and dedicated resource and funding to those communities immediately the virus doesn't discriminate but our responses and policies do and they have we just have to acknowledge that so when we look at the budget with the governors have cut Medicaid and trying to cut them to handle it out more and you look at the city budget when the mayor is trying to cut every single you job that exists in the summer while leaving NYPD homeless we know what happened so we must have a Phil Simmons that's a hundred percent but we have to use all the tools that we have so we need the government to look at every rate options will people own luxury yachts and planes left little who acted look at and he has secondly we have to get the resources for testing and contact tracing do begin mentally particularly is committed to working order while making sure that the information on the contact rate you've never used for third party never use for anyone besides people who are how to follow HIPAA laws and we can assure people that will be used for anything else psychotic and eventually

"Okay. Well we will have you back on another time to discuss more of that than Borough President Eric Adams we appreciate the time here on Max Murphy. Thank you and be well. Thank you guys. Be well as care. Thank you so Jarrett another good conversation with President. I think we've had him on a few times now. you know he's always got some interesting things to say Any any particular takeaways from what we heard from borough president had. I was struck by his response on the policing question. You know Eric Adams while he was a gadfly within the police department he is not a radical left winger on law and order issues and I thought he made a very cogent argument for why having police take the lead on enforcing social assistance. Saying is problematic for virtually everybody Really a much better presentation. Admit that I've heard from others and so I thought that was. That was really interesting. Someone who has been the position of of both cop and critic saying that that is probably not going to work in this as he mentioned a couple of times long hot summer. We have ahead of us and I think one of the things I'm interested in from the borough president is sort of really trying to get a feel for how he served views views the city in and his constituents in Brooklyn and then you know he's hoping larger city And you know that was some of the questions that I just tried to quickly get in there about the open streets in the beaches you know. Just trying to get a sense of of how he would govern And as you can trying to govern to extent is borough president influence decisions make some zone impact. Some of the things that are happening You know it's interesting to get a sense of sort of evolving approach to policing to management to to things like Planning for what will be You know looks like it's going to be very challenging Summer here city next week on this show we're going to have congresswoman Yvette Clark and our top challenger at Modesto as I mentioned and on Thursday may fourteenth better and I will be hosting debate for the Democratic primary in the Fifteenth Congressional district in the Bronx that Jose.

"That. We've been covering the food aspect quite a bit and even published an op. Ed By yourself on the on that healthfulness aspect but Do you do you have a sense? In terms of disparate The health food healthfulness of meals do you a sense. Both of of those sets were being controlled centrally by the city or are there local Issues at play decisions closed. Food Pantry is are there are there is it? Is it as simple as the sort of city halls food system is broken or was there any local issue at play and that's a great question because the combination of the city hall full system of was clearly not prepared and didn't make the necessary adjustment. I know the mayor switched over the process. in has commissioned Garcia of to sort of get it under control they stated that still I not kinks of Delivery System. We have people on the ground like campaign against hunger and one month she distribute of a million meals which was just amazing high quality males so it was a centralized system because remember what happened when they shut down the city or pause whatever terminology we want to use those senior centers with many seniors receiving their the meal. Their day that's primarily male was coming from the Cedar Senior Centers. We call them down. Seniors went home. There was no real avenue of getting the food that was not out and part of the closedown process. Adult Adult daycares those daycares. They were also closed down and we didn't make a quick adjustment of allowing them to use a tele medicine telecommunications to continue to provide the services so it was a central lines rake down not only just local pantry but it was a centralized breakdown. Not Getting to those worthy. Let me ask you You've been making a lot of Deliveries of of some mass and personal protection equipment. That you say you've said In some statements and interviews that you've been able to secure by making your own deals with partners in China. Can you explain that a little bit more on? I've been a little curious about how you know Brooklyn Borough. President's office is making deals to bring in equipment while you know in some ways the the city government state government had their own struggles with that had those deals at work. I think that's going to be one of the dog. Moments of the few of fishing Talian counter why Lauren busted a plane full of PP's and the richest city in the richest country The richest state we couldn't. That's a question that I've asked over and over again if you heard me speak about this. Throughout the years when I first became president I reached out to the all the council generals in the city and I have held several fetus with them because I always felt Brooklyn of being the third largest city if they were independent city that we need to have international relationships. You can't solve modern problems for leaving. You're going to be an isolation and travel back and forth to China's six times an established sister city agreement With the Chinese government so when the virus came here to the country one of the largest producers appease China so I got on the phone and say we need your help until our government is able to rain these supplies on a front line. Can you guys help us here in Brooklyn and they? They started shipping in style of Bass that we were able to bring hospitals green to for frontline employees while the MTA headed stockpile full of mass. They refused to give to their employees. We would give the man. We were given correctional officers mass school crossing guards mass Giving in ninety five sit down state interface. Mommy's here 'cause we thought we would just holding on the front into the city and state procurement would come through but the cavalry. Never you know we we in week six and we just started talking about your mass. I always say we should be giving mass to every essential employees. And every citizen Connecticut was giving Master Stamford. They was giving mass. To every citizen Newark was giving mass every citizen. Why couldn't we have done that here in New York? And using what funds from the Brooklyn Borough president sort of You know expense budget to to make those deals or what NOPE STRAIGHT DONATIONS. We have spent a dime stroh nations. You know the the people of China and the Chinese community here one story that has yet to be told that while Chinese community was being attacked. Why businesses were closed down. Why people harassing them. When I started my night project the Chinese community here in New York gave us twenty five thousand mile mass to do tonight should project of in spite of what they were going through? So we did not spend any money at all. It was all contributions from monks from Chinese business owners. People who said they they love this country and wanted to be here and be a part in help in the or contribution speaking of masks distribution. I saw police officers handing out masks van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx this weekend. Obviously there were other instances over the weekend involving police That were less sanguine. And where the role of police enforcing social distancing became another topic or was renewed as a topic of conversation. What do you think is the way to enforce? Social Distancing Mr Borough President Amina is if it is important in stopping a deadly disease it is potentially life and death issue when there is a lack of compliance. What's the appropriate role for police? And who else should be involved in trying to get people to comply but this one moment you were doing analysis of the great disturbances in our countries. I don't care if it's the watts riots in Los Angeles Rise. If the rights have taken place across this country for the most part it involved police community interaction. You we are talking when you talk about. Police offices of enforcing social distances. You are saying that a police department that has had some historical tension in certain communities. You are now encouraging the largest interaction with these schools in the history of the police department. That is alarming. And would I said with the mayor? This opportunity foresee build bridges with the communities that we have historical problem had them give out in that. I've been police officers Say Hello Give out master. People and talk about social justice team with the enforcement of social. Distancing is not a crime and we should stop treating like a crime. It's a re culturing. It's a rethinking how we have to exist as a Colbert or any virus environment. So next week I'm having a meeting of with my lawn. My law enforcement people as well as my friends of hawks associated throughout the barrel civic my block associated my pure violence and my violence interrupters. My clothes I am saying. Let's recoup people from their community to engage with people about the importance of social distance. Re Culture this is not an enforcement you know we should not be looking to use this as a modified version of stock. Can I what happened in Manhattan? They the to be arrested someone for possession of marijuana that started out as a he was sitting on his stoop with his lady friend and it all into all of a sudden they were wrestling on the ground. People play arrests and then a third person was party to say. We can't have that problem going. Be A hot summer. People are frustrated. Lisa officers are frustrated. We need people to be able to communicate not use citation. WanNa WANNA try to get to a few other things to do in our remaining five minutes here borough president. I just a couple maybe quicker question just as a follow up to that You know if you were sort of running things today and you wouldn't have the NYPD as the front line of social distancing enforcement. Do you think there needs to be a lot of city government personnel. That are doing that work or does it not have to be as much of a you know. It's it's the guidance out there and it's up to sort of social responsibility to take care of it or are there certain city employees that you would put in charge of it do you. Do you know what you do if you were in charge of the situation. What I think everyone could be engaged. City employee employees of you know I. I don't subscribe to the theory of certain city. Employees should stay home while the city of Louise should be out on the front line and particularly mind supervisory pool paid more. You do more of so. I think that everyone can be Better is not dealing with preexisting conditions. Because you have some who are but those who who could possibly do so a they should be out also engaging in the social distance it should not be uniform personnel and those would they have existing tension and and just to sort of.

"The the state of death care in New York City. I'm jared Murphy from city limits Dot Org and this has been Max from Gotham. We will be joined Again on the show. Return Guests Brooklyn Borough President. Eric Adams will join us a little bit after five. Twenty and he will talk with us. A Barack about a variety of things today on the Brooklyn Borough President has been very active during this crisis. And actually you know one of seemingly a fairly small number and this is probably probably the right way to approach. But one of a fairly small number of elected officials who's been on the ground quite a bit Eric Adams is a former. Nypd officer of more than two decades state senator. Now he's Brooklyn Borough president any sort of taken a hands on approach and we'll ask him at some of that. I have some questions about whether you know. Some of the stuff he's doing on the ground is actually the right approach but he's also taken a very active role in part that also leads into the fact that he is planning to run for mayor next years we've discussed with him on a prior appearances on the show. So Eric Adams will join us to talk about the situation in Brooklyn. It's got a number of hard mode really hard hit neighborhoods and then obviously the other aspect of this crisis will touch on with him as well. And Its role. In trying to mitigate some of the worst Impacts here right an Adams as one of the people in obviously others have been highlighting this as well but talking about the term that. I don't think we ever used before. At least I never used a deaf care in this crisis the concerns about the ability of morgues funeral homes and the medical examiner's office to handle the sheer volume of bodies that have been generated by this disease Stories about U haul trucks full of bodies Know Heart Island. Being used as long has been as a field for people who have not been claimed and Adams has been highlighting that in press pressing for some changes. So we'll be discussing that As you know there's there's virtually no part of you know our society our government our economy care system. That was ready for this right in. And so given that in many indications looks like a once a century pandemic and hopefully will only be that you know we've seen obviously some changes around You know the old one two centuries But you know it makes sense that it's such a shock to the system that nothing from You know the unemployment system to nursing homes to As you said the Presence the calling death care you know funeral homes. Burials none of these systems have been ready for this shock to the system. In of course there's questions around whether New York State York City could have been getting a little bit more up to speed prepared in the months of January and February and even into March when the crisis started really hitting here New York But you know the scale of this thing and it's many tentacles and fallout is just so enormous that almost everything's been overwhelmed. Well that's true and I think one of the questions we're GONNA ask going forward and this this'll be coming up in the fall and next year and we're people aren't doing after action reports and investigations of the response and planning for the future. Is You know. Just what kind of flexibility do we need to have in place? Because I I don't know if the you know. This is a hundred years since the nineteen eighteen through pandemic. And so you know the math of works out to suggest that we're GONNA have a while before we can account is something like this again but we don't know to be the case. There's you know. Suspicion add climate change and increasingly connected world people continuing to encroach upon Wildlife Habitat. That is going to increase the potential for pandemic flu. Hopefully that's not the case but it might may well be so. I think one of the things that people will talk about is. How do you have a normal system? System is calibrated for normal everyday life New York which thankfully does not involve huge huge numbers of deaths but that has built into it. Some flexibility to flex These when these big events do occur. I that's also going to be applied to the school system and healthcare into employment as much as it can be. Those are precisely the questions going to ask. fully move out of crisis mode and into kind of a retrospective look at what happened. What was right and what was wrong. Indeed and you know I want to hear some of the some of the pieces that you're thinking about right now say a couple things that are really on my.

Like all of my staff have about sixty five. Staffers and all of them are operated remotely from home. A there's about five of them of that. Say Listen I want to in this. You know their their spirits that war correspondents made of they wanna be on the ground because the battle is different you a marine or view an Air Force Marine. Your senior real. I see these soil mask of nurses that warm ask for a week. I see you know what it is when I knock on a door and see people inside that thing getting you want to grab is different. And what you absorb underground actually becomes part of your permanent registry and you can either can break your spirit soul or if you use it and say that. I'm here to alleviate the pain people fill it up with your spirit is so you all of a sudden out of all of this madness you find purpose and that purpose is more driven. Then the pain and Momma said to me long ago son.

We should not have a you know I do hospital system. Some get healthcare and others is sick care. Altruistic can learn we should have access to quality education. We should be feeding people help people in our jails and hospitals schools. And I'll senior sent. We need to change what we are doing. It is broken so maybe God said to us.

Well everyone listening. Eric Adams Debbie running for mayor next the vote for his ass. I WanNa thank you so much for joining us. This really means a lot to us a lot of times.

We're here God. Well everyone that was Eric Adams. You heard it from him. I that was great so inspiring. So I'm looking forward to seeing what he's GonNa do in the city. I think it's GonNa. It's so inspirational I even just talking about the food thing that hit me close to home because I lost my father two diabetes and he went to the whole. He did all the medication. The doctors told him to do I. If he would have had the Mojo did do the Internet and like you know really research he probably would still be with us you know. And and and hearing that from him Was I opening? Especially if you're a person who has a certain age too because you know we get stubborn sometimes and he no. He changed his his whole life. And that was something good to hear. Yeah we were talking about earlier how it's also like embedded in our communities as people of Color we have this sort of. I don't know I feel like it's also attached to this my cheese small. Where there's all this branding of like eat meat. Eat steak eat this way. You're to be a tough tough person. And then like you know people were just like are the the fridge is always stocked with meats and lake. You know and then it's also convenience when you have a large family and your your income is level easier to buy in bulk and just you know not really focus on eating well but there are ways and I think it's important to put that information out there and that's what I love about Eric. Who's actually getting that really important detail you know like he gets me excited about politics like like a little. Heo See there never was in politics and so like L. C. Came around and now he's also make elevating me in another way to like also do my part. I honestly I. It's exciting. I feel like the I feel like what happened. Twenty sixteen has shifted away unfil- as well like I hate what happens and I'm hearing voices that we that That came out of that frustration and anger. And and we're I think we're at a place where we're hearing newer voice says and they're being heard and we're listening and it's refreshing and I'm all for it. I'm all for I'm here. I'm I whoever who is just trying to push people in a positive path and calling motherfuckers too at the same time and Eric. Sorry I liked Eric. He talked about the things. That people aren't saying you know all the under like when the surgeon general was on TV talking to black and Brown communities talking gibberish. You're not acknowledging. The fact that these are the essential workers that are the ones in the frontline that the ones that are the ones packed on the subways. They're the ones that are not protected at the supermarkets. Who are more at risk you know? It's not just because we're drinking and smoking in like visiting our moms and POPs I know I know and there was a Lotta irresponsibility that happens. prior to like during the You know when things finally started closing even for myself I. It took forever for the company. I work for to finally say okay. It's time for you to stay home. I'm at that point. There was no one else like it was just me essential workers. I'm GONNA Social Worker. I fucking designed bathing suits but I felt like you know and it was like essential workers like homeless people and Unfortunately people that were using free. Leo's like all right. Fuck it but we're but we're but it came to a point where I didn't feel You know they talk about how. How about me and how is GonNa get actually annoying me about tweeted to? I'm like why are you still going to work? That's you at risk for what's a bathing suit for this company brought to you in the first place like not at all and how they contacted me sense are you okay. How're you doing now? So this is why. Everyone's going to shift their shit when the gates go down meeting him to see you know if if we have the option more options to shift gears and if these companies ended up opening up again and if you have other opportunities to be in a in an environment that they can give a shit about you take that opportunity you might have to pay cut. Whatever may be like. I think I value Companies actually care Rather than check at this point But I I honestly I got sick anything either. I got sick. I definitely got sick. I couldn't get tested. I'm sure it was from each still travelling to the city horse. You know like but do they know that I got sick now. Did I was going to be petty..

"Listening to allegedly NYC. How are you get to see both of you? We're great leisurely. Thank you so much for joining us today. Report where you're very casual. You're a busy man you know just trying to we call the grinding yes. The grinds the hustle Israel. We're all New Yorkers here. We're all New Yorkers here. I'm from Sunset Park Brooklyn. Avon you just South Bronx okay. Nice Nice Nice and you were. There's where are you from your from route Phil Brownsville and South Jamaica Queens awesome location about that Tattoo on my hand.

This is true in the marriage girl. Over Claire Yes. Are we on your end? We're good great well. So as New Yorkers where the epicenter of what's going on right now which is really intense especially for people who are like and raised here and today I wanted to talk a bit about how pandemics often expose these underlying issues within societies and how certain people are cared for while others are ignored. You know specifically now. We're seeing that this really disproportionately affecting black and brown communities. So I wanted to talk a bit about how we can use this moment to sort of like I feel like there's a magnifying glass on these issues right now and it's a good time to address them and hopefully shift towards a better society. I you know we should. We should this. Situation is like an onion and we should pill back each layer to get a full understanding. If you don't you'll miss it The thing we should Examined my belief is that we had a place right now and any major crises. You are in the a search and recovery fakes Phases that you're saying that there are still bodies alive and we need to find them. The recovery is that you're going to go in and get those dead bodies and just make sure they have a dignified burial and I don't want to look at the corona virus crisis that we have shifted to the recovery phase. We're still in the phase. We can still say bodies. We have to stop doing the things that we did. Which is we ignored black and Brown people in this city in this city. We divided the city into two categories. And when we did it I said to my staff that's coded language that we use in right now. When we said essential employees go out nonessential employees stay home. We basically said the essential employees over seventy percent of the essential employees are black and brown people and overwhelming number of immigrants. So those who were nonessential they were able to stay home and run. The city do their laptops and listened to their children. Call around on the floor and they were able to be a safe zone. That in itself was wrong. But let's take you to more steps. The second step is that we told the essential employees that you are supposed to go your job without any protective equipment with the full understanding. That people should be sheltered in place. You're not shelter in place with the full understanding that you should have six foot difference. You're not doing six difference. We're going to send you out there to make sure our abruptly on shelves when we call each you showa when it's time to drive trains and buses. You're going to be there so we're going to have you folks run our city while we and I'll save the HABE. Now here's the real dangerous part of its. You heard all the time the reason we couldn't give to nurses who are predominately black and Hispanic and Caribbean we couldn't we couldn't get a PP's personal protective equipment to all of the other essential employees because we didn't have enough that is the biggest lie that we bought and we started keep talking about. There's a global supply out there and we gave the city and state countless number of distributors. That has had reached out to us. And say hey. These cats never called us back able to get thousands upon thousands of donated personal protection equipment. I'm donating equipment to my hospitals. I'm donated to ACS employee school crossing guards. Correction officials. A nurse's why am I able to get it? And they're unable to purchase it on the largest large scale. The urgency was never us? There was never planned. I want you to go back and look at the brief instrument. Everyone there was never a plan. You have to fight this virus on two fronts.

"Let's move onto our second guests who is no stranger to Albany, by the way. And that is Brooklyn borough president, Eric Adams. Thanks for joining us here on WBAI. Great speaking with you. So you are a former state Senator, which probably people who followed your career. No well, but what's your, what's your reaction to what we've seen come from Albany, especially these last couple of days on the on the rent regulations? Arm still. On it. I was in news all day, but just from what I heard a real, we are clearly reaching in, in a direction. We we're looking at how to ensure a lawns affair. When you look at the various areas, everything from MCI to think she d control many of these areas going back to the days when tell seven that's was there. An critique gather in sweeping Crump of bills that never really made it to the floor on able to pass them. And so I think that with the Senate democrat control, as well as their simply at with the large enough voting block, it makes it easier to accomplish the task. And I think they should be happy for the results that they won't fall into so much onto tickets to see a great deal things done. If he continued to be take control of the Senate. So over the next few days, Mr President, there is a lot left to be done potentially. In Albany, a lot of big ticket items still metabol- when you think about that list. The people rattle off of marijuana legalization driver's licenses for the undocumented charter cap, fifty a what would you say are your priorities? What do you want Albany to do? What do you think they absolutely must do before they go home June nineteenth. Not really hasn't been a communicated a lot. But when we need to look there in the fair fund for education on far too long, although there was a campaign for fiscal equity. We'd never did get out to and the numbers. Just don't add up on you. Look at the numbers, they come to New York City, I think it is important that we visited that says an opportunity when should get their share in education educational dollars and to that legalization of our honors import. With a clean up the records of those who were arrested. Of we give people an opportunity to go on with their lives. And all you have a police record hanging over your head infects, the quality of life around, employment and other areas that a person could be up to visit society. I think which take a very close look at how we're going to deal when. The prison reform is so much more. We, we can do around prison reform. That no one should be ELD on bail and they arrested for non violent. Crime is other ways. We should that they were hearing. And what and I think going even deeper in prison reform is something that I think they should look at it as well. And correct me if I'm wrong, but you have come out and support for extending driver's licenses to, to all to including undocumented immigrants. I'm sorry you broke up. Correct me if I'm wrong. But you've come out in support of driver's licenses for all, including undocumented immigrants that something, you want to see them get done. It just think about it for a moment. It's an economic win, because it allows fusion of a real tax dollars on allowing undocumented immigrants. Who have driver's license and allowed them to not live in the shadows of employment. They're driving. Anyway. They're on the road. We don't know how many run incidence chats to a person having their driver's license on, we're able to forms of identification. Like the municipal ID program is shows that people are willing to step out of the shadows of government is hard enough with the energy, that's coming from all the as anti immigrant is should not be saying, yeah, I think it's a real win. It allows to be on the road would do with reporting incidents and accidents, allowing people to be employed. And this win win all the way around if we're able this happened during the session. So as Albany, winds toward the ends of its session. And if it session the city is moving toward its annual budget deadline. I'm curious with the city budget as. The topic what are your priorities there? Where do you want to see what the mayor has proposed shoring up or shaved off what what are your suggestions for? The city is spending plan for next year. Several areas that I believe is important to one and what was always the important with me and education. We have to do more in early childhood education and of really it's more than just pre K three K. I'm hoping the mayor inner city council look at zero three model that we have been talking about, and other educational experts have been also talking about we're not doing enough in early childhood education. We. We're we're, we're losing you in and out there borough president Adams. Yep. That's pretty good. I was saying that a child's brain develops between the ages of zero to three yet, we do not have this fall. We've not showing parents with the. And so when we look at early childhood education that is the area. I'm hoping of that we, we can look towards also equity equity in those pre K. Not, you'll reap the local community based organization and nonprofit of we believe they should receive an echo of pay equivalent to the pre K program that the department of education is unfair that we're not doing that, and send the wrong message in the process, and that seems to be maybe the biggest sticking point between the city council and the administration. These budget negotiations is that so-called pay parody for the early childhood educators, as you say, in the in the CBO versus the DOE schools. Do do you have a sense of, of what the holdup is there is that really just a the to Bosnia administration, not wanting to make the financial commitment, there that would then basically be expected going forward? Or do you have any sense of what the holdup is on? On that pay parody. Unfair to continue to have many of these local communities organizations are in oppourtunities, when you need to ensure that I'll teaches school in these location in pre K locations, receiving the same salaries that same level of paint that they can't apart are receiving not believe another important area. I look at we can't continue to feed the crises in all city and something that really has been below the radar of when you look at the conversation around close Rikers and the mayor's proposing to open digital sales in four of the boroughs, but we also look at closing the pipeline their fees like righteous almost thirty to thirty five percent of the men and women who all Iraqis island there dyslexic. So if we prop. Really address the issue of not giving them the service at the beginning of the educational of opportunities, then we could actually start dealing with the process feed in rank is in the first place. Many of them leave school because they don't in properly identified as being dyslexic. They not even the service, they start doing petty crimes in a lead to logic crime, and so close in a facility without closing the pipeline. There sees facility is, is not going to solve the problem is only going to create in containing create the crisis, and that, that is also true for those enforce it can who age out those foster care, young people wage out, they become victims of criminal behavior, or they participating criminal behavior by allocating fifty million dollars to give them. What's called life coaches. It would allow them to get the support that they need right now only three percent of those who age out of foster care, or who are in force the care. Actually graduate from college, and that is just a real indicator that there's no future for them. If we we're not giving them the support that they need on the topic of the mayor's borough jails plan, replacing Rikers with facilities in four of the five boroughs last week, you chaired a borough hearing on that people expressing their views on the plan to expand facility that already has a jail footprint in your borough. I know your recommendations are, are, are do soon. What is your take on the proposal, overall and the specific plan for your borough? And I would be unfair to me without hearing all of the stakeholders involved before we produce a report, it gives the opinions that I'll never willing to listen to people already had my mind made up, and I don't think that way. And so I'm going to hold off on say without formal position is until I have an opportunity to hear from all the stakeholders ball is very complex conversation because, as we bring down until the number of those who are incarcerated in Rikers island of, we want to be a really responsive to the needs of the community and at the same time hopeful with the plan to close. Right. And so we will be given a formal report and at that time, it would it would be clear on without position sticking with the close Rikers plan and public safety, your former member of the NYPD and, you know, been outspoken on criminal Justice issues and policing. Issues. Do you have any thoughts right now in terms of some of the discussions that are, that are happening? The reforms that happened in Albany. The plan to get the New York City jail population down to around four thousand as the mayor believe recently predicted, it could get with the with the new changes out of Albany on bail in discovery. Do you have any concerns that things are swinging too far in the other direction? With public safety. You should should move at the right pace. We can't allow emotions to actually generate the policy. I was cleared under the former speaker speaker, every till I was cleared with her, that there was no reason we were turn and see some as his in criminal court summonses into warrant of we partnered with as we move out city away from that, that was a big mistake. If someone of receive a summons of for a particular fence, and they did not showing call if they would have shown up in court of they would not have a permanent, Mark on the record. They didn't show up in court. They will have a permanent marker erected, anywhere have a warm, and I knew that was a big mistake, particularly when we look at how we were issuing summonses also petty crimes of based on the area of the city that a person happened to this. That's the same way I feel about a decreasing. Of the prison population in Rikers. I don't believe that a person who commits a nonviolent act as I said earlier should be incarcerated, right? 'cause merely because they do not have enough money to pay for bell. I think that's wrong. It's the wrong way to, to go those who commit predatory crimes, and clearly those late lovely burglary homicide from all these assault kidnapping of they should be incarcerated as I don't believe that we should ignore that. And of there's some people who say, we don't need jails at all of these are reasonable and you wanna be in jail. I do not subscribe to that they're up police city of New York, and I don't want to return to the days of when we were all riding around with no radio signs, and all.
