"7 12 People confirmed dead 149 people still unaccounted for. And the Supreme Court has ruled that the federal government can indefinitely detain immigrants who say they will face uh persecution or torture if they are deported back to their native countries. We are in the middle of major major changes. In the world of policing. No surprise there. And, uh, here in L, a county were sort of the forefront of that with our district Attorney George Gascon. And because why he believes in rehabilitation. He actually doesn't believe in prosecuting. He's for the most part of defense attorney But the philosophy of moving away from punishment to we have, uh, is particularly strong, uh, with the youth with juvenile offenders. Now it's always been that way. But now it's going balls to the wall. And what California is doing is phasing out the state run youth prisons, shifting it all over the counties with a shocker. It's not like they haven't done that before with prisons in general, but lawmakers have created the first alternative to housing offenders as young as 12 alongside adults. They're saying we don't want youths, uh, alongside adults in San Quentin and Folsom Prison. Do you know in that program started Where they took juvenile offenders and put them effectively back to back with adult offenders. 18 59. Is when it started here in California. Uh, first facility for troubled youths, the San Francisco industrial School. And two years later, the state reform School, uh in Marysville opened up for boys 8 to 18. And at one point, the state actually had a system 11 lockups holding, give or take about 10,000 youths. Well right now the youth offender program. The specific program is 750 kids, but they are pretty serious crimes. 16 are serving time for homicide. 37 for assault, a third for robbery. Nine for rape 9%, and here is the inevitable problem. 59% are Hispanic. And 29% are black. And until now. Uh, youths, kids as young as 12 could be sent to facilities and remain in those facilities until the age of 25. And turning 18. They could be transferred to an adult prison until they're 25. So, um, What once did happen is juvenile court judges could, uh, asked that, uh, these kids be house in ST secure youth treatment facilities. Well, that's changing. Because now it's a question of, uh, even more so than before. Rehabilitation versus punishment. And therein, of course, lies, Uh, the age old Confrontation. Discussion is prison about rehabilitation is prison about punishment. And when you're talking about young people, uh, rehab part of it really kicks in because there's time. Uh, it was Indiscretion in quotes, bad choice. Your brain. Whatever part of your brain hasn't developed fully. Uh, what is it? The hippopotamus part of your brain has not developed fully. So you don't have the same judgment. Uh, And the only thing I can tell you as WEU as this is, our current system is not working. It is broken. And here is where I agree. I agree with Gascogne and that is as much as you dislike where I'm going and how I'm doing it. What we have here does not work. We have the largest number of incarcerated people in the world not only in terms of raw numbers, but per capita So I don't know what the answer is. It's probably gonna be a combination of both. Rehab as well as punishment. Because obviously someone's committing heinous crime has to be punished for it. But at the same time if there is a chance for rehabilitation, you have to go there too. So this is what we're saying is a swing. But it's this swing is still here. I go down the hall. Nobody in sales. Yeah. It's still not there yet, but we're in the middle of some massive changes. All right. Police are taking out Wanted posters, You know, the kind that used being post offices. Well, now it's social media, and it's doing a good job. Except it's ruining a lot of people's lives. That shouldn't happen. I'll explain what how that works when we come back. All right, Jennifer. Several.

But so anyway, San Francisco police, for some reason have decided to announce there are we have this scuff law? Well, we have him in the firm grasp of law enforcement, and so we'll we'll see, but I mean, it's a national embarrassment cause that video was viral across the country and around the world. I saw it on BBC. They were, they were showing that San Francisco is effectively lawless. Um and and we're one step away from that around here. Um, I mean, there's people who Literally walk into Costco and pull a $995.4 k TV off. Put it on the cartwheel it out best they can do is take a picture of your license plate. There is that you know what else I saw today? Um, you know, they have those cell phone turn in for cash. The sort of cellphone ATMs at WalMart. Anyone's seen those, you know.

"You have to ask yourself. And decide who you want to be aligned with. Why didn't you ask those same questions when George Gascon ran for D A in a place that he hadn't lived for 15 years? Wow, like where is the funding coming from? Who's backing him? And why? Why not? Mhm. Sure, sure. Well, she didn't answer those questions. Of course, but Mike Bonin, did you hear about this? From Tucker Carlson and Fox News all the way down through conservative talk radio, and you're going to see this thing bankrolled by the Deputies Association. By the Police Protective League and by Sheriff Villanueva. He knows something about a recall. He got his own papers this week. I'm just going to say he's gearing up for that, too. And all he did was named random. Nebulous. I mean, outside of the name blast of Terra Tucker Carlson. Uh, that's their whole defense is to paint the recall efforts. Whether it's Gascon or Newsome, as like. This is a right wing capital, storming white forever wearing white supremacists when there are a number I mean, we've heard from the people. Better behind the Newsome effort. There are a number of independent voters that don't like Newsome for what he did with the French laundry and his hair. There are but again when you got to look at the numbers on this because the numbers show that that's that line of attack has worked well for news in which is why we're seeing it on the local level as well because by associating the recall campaign with what happened on January 6th, you are essentially reminding voters in the middle that if they back that recall campaign, they are associating with people who, outwardly Have been in the same universe and so by that guilt of association you tamper with. I don't know if tamper with but maybe, um, contaminate the idea of that campaigns. So you know when, when, when you look at the tracking on the whether it's PPC up in the Bay area or other polling entities. You have seen that line of attack work for Newsome, not to mention other things also have been happening in track with that, so that I'm not saying it's right or wrong. I'm just saying that there is a a reason behind the strategy and I will close out with a cut coming from the d a himself talking about, um Uh, maybe this is a bit more nebulous than just an attack on him. This is not a campaign by George Gascon. This.

"What 877 moist 86 1877664786. We just got done talking to former L. A county district Attorney Steve Cooley. With him was a mom. Her name is desert Andre de whose son was murdered. And this George Gascon, the L. A County D, a refused to press sentencing enhancements that would put these murderers of her son away for a very long time. The news is that recall George gascon dot com will soon have petitions for you to download and sign and be a part of the recall from office. It is hoped by tomorrow. Afternoon, we will be able to tell you that the petitions are online and ready to be signed. So be ready and do it as quickly as you can. I just For interest. I Googled George Gascogne on a story just popped up that was put out yesterday. District Attorney George Gascogne is not an out liar, saying Attorney General's India's around the nation. He is the popularly elected wave of the future. Website is witness. L A over here that criminal justice journalism in the public interest. Oh, it sounds like some left wing propaganda rag used to read this thing. You make me talking about what we were just talking about with Steve Cooley that this may go to the California state Supreme Court. The fact that Guess Cone was removing sentence enhancements, and apparently, a judge said, No, you're not. So that's what Gascogne is challenging. And these days they're saying it should be his prosecutorial discretion. To charge or not charged people. That's what he was elected to do, But it Steve Cooley pointed out, it's the law, sentencing enhancements all the law. I think if they actually comprised of and they will prove That these three men did everything that was right on draught. He described that they killed her son by beating and stabbing him until he was unconscious. And then Drove him. Dumped him on the side of the road that eventually threw him off a cliff. They stopped on his head a few more times because I thought he might still be alive. They're stabbing him in the face. They prove all that then they really committed those crimes so they should be charged with the enhancements of kidnapping and lying and wait and whatever else the enhancement said, because they really did it, and the law says if you do that these air the charges and this is the sentence. So where it is, guess going, come in and act as if it didn't happen. But the torture didn't happen. The lying in wait didn't happen. The kidnapping didn't happen. How could you pretend it didn't happen? It did. This. This is this is a real crucial moment here. Can't a district attorney on his own decides it's certain crimes that did happen. Didn't happen. Cause If you don't charge him, it's as if it never occurred. Crazy and he doesn't have that We wouldn't give any D a to authority to do that to rewrite reality. No. And this woman that wrote this column says that Gascogne His changes. His directive should surprise nobody because he was an unambiguous reformer. Oh, he didn't talk about this meeting to talk about this little, he said. You know what? I'm so sick of the propaganda and, you know thing is we get propaganda from foods bogus sites on the Internet, right? And and it's just all agitation. From these progressive fanatics. And but But then you you, you turn on what used to be mainstream media and you get the same propaganda. And agitation. You get the same nonsense and it's all declarations. It's declarations. This is the new progressive wave. It's like F you. It's not the new progressive wave. This is temporary insanity. It's going to be corrected. No, There's nobody who thinks that the guys who did what they did. The Julian Andrade should be out in 20 years. Go find me who thinks that with your Beverly Hills, Rosemead, La Morada, Lancaster, PICO Rivera, Cavenagh, Santa Clarita, Azusa, Santa Fe Springs, Diamond Bar. Redondo Beach, Arcadia, Manhattan Beach. That is the list of towns in L. A county who City Council's voted no confidence and Gascogne. Ah, lot of what we're talking about, goes back to a Steve Cooley said. Everything's upside down. I want it is just unprecedented. To see this kind of revolt against the prosecutor, and you have a prosecutor who's acting as a public defender. That's what he's doing. He's trying to destroy our county Justice System restaurant. It is criminally yes. Yes. He's that's who I hate guys. I was gonna ask you, could you? Could You ever imagine that your office healthy run by someone? The thing is, I'm telling you this side of the criminals like George Soros financed his campaign. This is well, this is well organized Sorrows has dozens of these subsidiary. Organizations that funneled the money into these campaigns. And I'm sure there's a lot of money that goes under the table or two side organizations that, you know, create commercials create social media impressions. And what they did is in the George Floyd moment. They created this myth that he's this reformer. Smeared Jackie Lacey. They had black lives matter. Protestors there every day in front of her house. Baiting her husband until he came out with a gun because he he and she were terrified that they were going to get killed by these by these protestors have shut up in the dark. And it was a smear campaign was attacked campaign and it was all connected. It didn't happen by accident. Whoever showed up there for black lives matter that night. There's direct connections to Gascogne direct connections to these George sourced organizations, direct connections to all the nonsense that's going on all over, especially on the West Coast. Portland, Seattle the whole bit. This is by design. It's same organizations are connected you until the homeless nonsense is about ruining. Are American society, and they're doing it and they're winning. Because you're coming. There's no watchdog. There's nobody shining the spotlight. All the media has abandoned their obligation to do that. A lot of the media is in with these guys.

"W Sng and W. M. M W was in broadcasts at Lars Larson, calm Welcome back to Lars Larson. Joey, It's a pleasure to be with you on a Monday. Always glad to get your phone calls and your emails at 866. Hey, Lars. That's 8664395277. You know, an awful lot of American cities were damaged badly last year by the riots and the arson and looting and the assault and the occasional rapes and the occasional murders. It happened because of because of a lot of that. You know that unlawful activity, unfortunately, an awful lot of that unlawful activity, which I think totaled up about $2 billion in damages nationwide. That's the dollar damage, not counting all the human damage that was done. Ah, lot of those people found themselves not being prosecuted because prosecutors Have decided they don't want to prosecute crimes anymore. It seems Cully Stimson joins us now who's senior legal fellow for Heritage Foundation and manager at the National Security Law Program. Kelly. It's good to have you back on the program. What a rogue prosecutors doing to America's legal system. Other than the example I just gave Well, they are fundamentally reverse engineering. That's their goal. Reverse engineering the criminal justice system, essentially In the 2300 d E. A offices around the country. You have several dozen who our sorrows back road prosecutors who are essentially deciding to usurp the power of the legislative body by not prosecuting cases basic crime. Like in their cities, their eliminating cash bail. They're refusing to hold people accountable for violent crimes, and they're letting criminals out like George Gascon. Duly elected road. Puppet in L. A. Who has put a cap on 15 years for anybody sent every Every case that was prosecuted before he even took office where people got life for long periods of time. If you served 15 years, he's ordering his prosecutors toe work to let you out and the list goes on and on, so they are A danger to society, Frankly. I would agree with you and and in fact, I imagine the most concerned people are gonna have is about serious crimes, violent crimes and person crimes versus property crimes. I kind of tend to subscribe to that broken Windows theory that says, if you let a lot of the little stuff, you know, like the arson on the writing and the looting and breaking windows and things like that, you say Well, that at least that's against property, not against people. But once you allow Ah lot of that kind of stuff. The other crimes tend to follow. Well, that's obviously true. They're proud by the way large of their racial Rollins, For example, the road to in Boston 15 crimes you can commit in Boston. George Gascon L. A. Has Boutin misdemeanor crimes You can commit in l. A, he says. But this list is not exhausted. Their theory. They're talking point alarms is that They have data and science. I'm doing air quotes to prove that if you don't prosecute these dozens of misdemeanor crimes that crime will go down. Well, of course, In all of these cities, crime has gone up. And it affects the quality of life. The real irony, said. Part here large is that the very people they pretend to be protecting black and brown and mainly minority people in inner city are the ones who are the most victimized. Are these radical rogue policy? That's the sad part. Well, I'd agree with you because if, for example, I don't know if one of those 15 crimes is, say qarth after unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, But for those people who have money in America, you have a car. It's insured. If somebody steals that you call your insurance agent, and within a day or two, you have another car, at least a loner and probably have a brand new car. If your car is destroyed, or you know, somehow disappears altogether. But if you're a poor person, and your car is the way to get to work to get to shopping to pick up your kids a day care whatever. And the car may only be worth a few 1000 bucks. If that car is stolen, chances are you won't be easily replacing it, which does an inmate an immense amount of damage to that individual may be a single mom out there. So car theft, for example, is a very serious crime. Most people say it's not personal crime. Why, you know it's not that big a deal. But they say it, you know, kind of from the Nancy Pelosi. Perspective of have cars. They're all insured. If they disappear, I get a new one, You know, but the poor person is not in that same boat. The 15 crimes involved in which just happen? L A. It's better trespassing. Stop lifting larceny under 50 disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, receiving stolen property breaking and entering. Wanted the malicious destruction of property threat possesses a minor alcohol, drug possession, drug possession with intensity. Christian princes want to rest. Oh, I'm free for all the cities now And so, by the way, Lars, imagine if you applied those road radical policy. So what happened on January, the sixth at our U. S. Capitol. Most of the patients would not be prosecuted because a lot of them are resisting arrest of property crime. It's disgusting it is And when you say that Possession of drugs with the intent to the street. Just tribute. Can you imagine what the average mom or dad especially one who lives in an inner city where drugs maybe sold fairly openly would say if you said Yeah, we caught him. He had a bunch of drugs. He was He was selling them, but he was selling them by your kid's school. But we're not gonna prosecute the crime. Most of those parents, I would hope would say that's tremendously damaging to my my child. How can you do that? And of course, drug sales tend to bring with them disputes over drug territory between different entities who are selling drugs, and they usually settle those disputes with violence and that spillover violence is why, you know once a month or once a week or so we hear about a child who's been shot. Because an errant shot from somebody else's dispute found a target. It wasn't intended for. Look listen lot in the last 20 years. Crime is violent Crime has been going down for the last 20 years. So has incarceration rates, and that happened because independent, fair minded Democrat and Republican Long order. Prosecutors have used good court domestic violence. Court Alternatives to Incarceration Family Justice Center, in fact, is the reason these crime rates have gone down in these incarceration has gone down these room of radical prosecutors. They think I'm progressive. Anything progressive about him is that there? You're starting in the power of the little bit of body and they're swapping independent, fair minded prosecutors with criminal defense lawyers to our probe. Criminal. That's the radical part of what they're doing. And crime is caught up in everything legal city where they grow. The prosecutors have been elected. Oh, my God Back. I'm talking about Cully Stimson from the Heritage Foundation. So help me out with this I mean, have actually covered on a local basis. Some of these individual races that George Soros has poured money into Help me understand what his agenda is. I mean, he's a very wealthy guy, and he enjoys incredibly great security personally, so do most of his colleagues and peers. So is his goal to turn America's inner cities, especially into shooting galleries and places that are dangerous that people live in them because I'm sure that's not a stated goal, but is he realized the practical effect? What these D A's air doing the ones that he helped put in office. Well, of course, they realize it. That's their goal, And they're realizing that their goal they have sponsored a number of so called academic publications in the form of long reviews to talk about what their real goals are there, not Hiding the ball and their goal. Lars is to quote fundamentally reverse engineer the criminal justice system, which they see as completely racist. It's not, um and They think that because they cannot buy enough politicians at the legislative level and buy enough judges and buying up sheriff, they're just going.

"Outside the lines. George Gascon on reality. Well, he may be Pinocchio but the Japan Oh, in the story is George Soros. Who is this sugar? Daddy, who funded George Gascon is campaign and he didn't just do it in Los Angeles. But he also ran other candidates very similar to George Gascon in San Diego and Sacramento and Alameda, San Francisco, Other counties. He's trying to do this up and down the state and I talkto District Attorney Steve Cooley last week, former District attorney Who said that if you're in Orange County, or you're in Riverside County or Ventura County or imperial or or other Southern California counties, guess what it's coming your way. George Soros wants to remake this state. There are a lot of billionaires out there who do not believe what George Soros believes. Is it time for someone to pony up the money to be the counterbalance to George Soros so that our team has the money that they need to launch a vigorous campaign against these candidates who have these radical beliefs that are funded by George Soros. God, I hope so. I would think that there would be a line of people that were willing to band together to keep this from happening. We have to launch encounter campaign and yes, that does require fun. Um, but people are gonna pay with their lives and the initial victims that died that that's one wave of being victimized. But the real harm is done in the remaining families that are left to suffer that loss forever. And I would like to think that there's a lot of good people out there that have Very deep pockets. It would that would like to come over to our side. At least I hope so. And from everything that I read on Mr Sorrows, by the way, he became a billionaire. He made most of his money on the back of tragedy. So what is his endgame? I have to ask what exactly? Is he planning for the cities that he leaves basically in a pile of ashes? Well, he's a 90 something year old billionaire. He has private security. He lives behind the gate. He doesn't have to worry about being the victim of a crime. But if you're a single mom or you're an elderly person, or you're a child walking the school and you've got child molesters, and you've got muggers if you got murderers out there You rely on the district attorney's office. You rely on law and order. You rely on the police to keep you safe. He doesn't have to worry about it. But the people whose lives he's impacting they do. Exactly exactly. John and those people will come in a multitude of cultures. So I my mind is blown. It doesn't matter. Who you are or where you are The propensity the for becoming a victim. It could be a drive by shooting is generally will happen in the Uh, poor neighborhood. But this is going to spread like a cancer to where people in Beverly Hills can be victimized is nobody lives in the gas glass Castle. When you speak to Deputy D A s people who spend their careers trying to keep bad guys locked up. What did they tell you about their new boss? This has to be heartbreaking for them. It's heartbreaking. I've heard them speak of fear. I know personally, several that have taken early retirement. Their minds are blown. They cannot Believe that they are being asked to Indoors. The release of dangerous criminals. He's actually asking them to endorse. Criminals. As opposed to Ah, well, he abolished the lifer, Human way. Um Touches the Manson family. I've got a hearing January 2020 seconds on the Davis, who's the meanest and nastiest of them all? Outside of even in my opinion above Charlie, Um we will have no more legal representation there whatsoever. Do you believe there's there's a chance that the district attorney's office could go into that hearing and say, Yes, we advocate for the release of the Manson family. That is exactly what Mr Gaston is is asking of his district attorneys now nobody will be going in. That's been forbidden. There will be no more representation from a legal entity in a parole hearing, but he's actually asking Or letters of support for the release of the inmate to be written to the California parole Board. Based on your understanding of gas guns position if Charlie Manson were still alive, Do you think Gascon would advocate for his release? Absolutely. This is an example of the broad stroke of the paint brush that I was referring to earlier there have to be you can't Hey. You can't have a blanket policy. Everything needs to be judged on his own merit. Or lack thereof. In order to import public safety and I will stand about that stand behind that. To my dying breath, and so should everybody else. This is a problem for each and every one of us. We will be living in fear. Until we take care of this problem, and Mr got Stone is not willing to listen to reason. He's only willing to listen to people that support quote unquote victims. That support his Agenda. Now horse can be found in all kinds of labors. And if you truly experienced the loss of a loved one, you are not going to get on board with this. This guy needs to be run out of town on a rail and I know he was just elected and I know we're talking about a recall of the governor, So we got a lot going on right now. Politically in that arena. But if this guy is allowed to serve four years, his district attorney, the permanent damage that he can inflict on the people of Los Angeles is immeasurable. I really do believe this guy not only has to be recalled, but victims need to confront him every time he gives a press conference every time he gives a speech every time he goes out there any advocates for these sorts of things. The other side has to be presented. And the people of Los Angeles need to know the damage that this guy is doing to our county. I am all about protecting the innocent. Here's all about protecting the guilty. And I think, John, you're right. That's exactly what needs to be happening. Not only the families of victims, but the people at large people that have not yet Had this horrific experience.

"Mo Kelly Show on the new L A. D. A. George Gascon says he's ready to take the office in a new direction. And he's not wasting any time. He's probably ruffling some feathers. But you know that's his prerogative. Some people want to move slower. Some people don't want to waste any time. And some of the decisions he's made. I kind of agree with some of them. I actually like a lot. Here. Two of them that I think are worthy of focusing on Guess gone. Who's a former police officer? And I think that, um, is important here. First he's doing away with the cash bail system. And I completely agree with that. And if you understand how cash bail works, especially for non violent offenders, Bail has been used as a way I would say. To subvert justice in the sense that if you're not of a certain financial status, did you just going to remain in jail even before you have your trial, and it's not like you're gonna get arrested on Friday and necessarily See a judge and be arraigned and have your case adjudicated on Monday. It doesn't necessarily work that way. And to what do I know you have something to say about this. People have languished in jail for weeks and months simply because They can't reach certain bail requirements, not talking about nonviolent offenders. I'm not talking about someone who's accused of murder or attempted rape. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about non violent Fences. This was Gascon had to say people that are being held in county jail. They're not dangerous, but they're being simply held because they cannot afford bail. That's one too many. I agree with that, and it's almost like you're being penalized and you're being imprisoned in many instances for not having money. And and I've seen it with a lot of friends. And, um, uh, people I've known over the years I've had someone who who couldn't get out of jail because he didn't pay his parking tickets. And could not afford that bail. And so they were spitting. Ah, good weekend jail before they even really saw a judge it these are the things that can go ahead. Well, I've had. I've had friends who have literally lost their jobs because they were pulled over and because there was a citation on On on their cars on their license because of overdue parking tickets. Ah bench warrant was issued. They were jailed. They were jailed for over a week's time and lost their job. They were also put into a cell with like some of the worst of the worst. They're like, why might in a jail cell with people who have killed other people? That's what I agree with. This far is reforming the whole cash bail process. I am with that and you have to think about it from the worst case scenarios how it can be unintentionally. Misuse or the unintended consequences of it. That's first thing and also this doesn't have to do with George Gascon. But this is something going on within California and will have Repercussions if it goes through as far as how we adjudicate law around here, there's a cattle California bill, which would require police officers to be 25 years old. Or have a bachelor's degree. Hear me out on this. I'm not saying that there is a direct relationship between having a college degree. And being a good police officer, or if they have a college degree and or being 25 that you wouldn't have any of these questionable shootings. I'm not saying that I am saying that, like the military As far as becoming an officer. Having extra training. Having a degree. Is smiled upon and helps me helps make a more well rounded individual for decision making. Hopefully, aim or mature individual and you know this just by listening can fire If you want to be a military officer, you have to attend a senior military college or service academy and roll. Had a traditional college or university with ROTC, Attend Officer Candidate school. That's that's above be just 17 18 years old and just enlisting. So there is something to be said for this is far as how having more life experience like, for example. There's a reason why there's an age requirement to be president. There's a reason why there's an age requirement to be a Congress person. Now there may not be an educational requirement, but generally by and large we do smile upon Those individuals who offer more of an educational history. I mean, I don't think that there's an educational requirement for the Supreme Court. But you know what? It's kind of cool if you have a Supreme Court justice with a law degree and a lot of law experience, So all these things run together before I get too far a field. This California bill would require police officers to be 25 years old or have a bachelor's degree, Assemblyman Reggie Jones, Soyer Democrat Los Angeles and introduced the bill last Monday. You go state Legislature that is aimed at minimizing police use of deadly force. I would say it like this. If you are going to be granted the power of life and death And you also have qualified immunity. Wouldn't it be okay. If you have a little more life experience behind you, wouldn't it be okay if you have a little more education under you? What is wrong? With requiring more. Of our officers before they're granted that power. And I'm not saying again. I'm going to say this again because I know I'm going to get your tweets at Mr Bo Kelly. Or you gonna hit me on instagram at Mistral. Kelly going to say you said no. I want to be very clear. I'm not saying one Determines the other..

"In los angeles today new district attorney took over. His name is george gas gone and he ran and won as a progressive and he's going to implement progressive policies in one of the things. He did today his very first day. Is that say that on january. The first the use of cash bail is going to end in los angeles county instead. Prosecutors are going to ask judges to release defendants on their own recognizance. Water cases moved through the courts except for homicide or other serious crimes and as we know from segment we did. It's got to be two and a half years ago now. Even when you release people on their own recognizance forget the cash bail thing they come back. Some overwhelming percentage of people come back and and make their court date. And i just i wanted to point that out because we had done it and also because what happens in california frequently leads the nation and los angeles has one of the biggest municipal and city court systems and county court systems in the country. And i think it's of note. And so i have no doubt on this podcast.

California Votes To Keep Criminal Justice Changes
"Was a good day for criminal justice reformers. In California statewide voters resoundingly defeated a ballot measure that would have rolled back some reforms. And voted to give people on parole the right to vote in the Bay Area. Six police Accountability measures enjoyed strong support, and San Francisco's former district attorney, George Gascon, appears to be winning in his challenge to the more conservative sitting Los Angeles D A. But voters did reject an attempt to end money bail. Here to sort out what All this means is cake politics correspondent Marissa Lagos. Marissa, You have been covering criminal justice reform efforts in California for over a decade now, were you surprised by these results? You know, I wasn't surprised Hera. But I do think that it is a huge win for the reform side of things. I mean, we've heard for years ever since some of these changes started coming through both legislatively and at the ballot box. A lot of pushback from law enforcement and other folks who saw them is going to far and I think that voters weighing in s O decisively on both proposition 20 rejecting some of these rollbacks of reforms and also on some of these police oversight measures really does show a shift an opinion. I spoke to Kate Chatfield, she's policy director at the Justice Collaborative, which is a national pro reform group. She knows that proposition. 20 wasn't even close. Even though law enforcement worked really hard to make the case to voters standing is all the usual cards in the deck. You know the Willie Horton playbook, crime is increasing the fear based mailers in the voter saw through them. And Kate, of course, is referring to that. 1988 Presidential Willie Horton ad The really helped Republicans win and I think that you know, while the No 1 20 side spend a lot more money than the outside, and I think some folks see that is, you know, money talks. I do think that Given how much we've heard talked about these issues that voters it seems like they knew what they were weighing in on and just didn't want, Teo turn the tide back the other direction. Yeah, you know, proposition 25 that was aimed at Indian cash. Bail was pretty suddenly defeated. What happened there? Yeah, This is a really interesting one. I mean, I think there's a couple things happening. One is that you didn't have the same coalition on the left really backing this reform. There's a schism with a lot of people kind of on the more progressive wing of The Democratic Party. The bail industry also spent a lot of money on this, and I think that the combination of them targeting folks in places like Riverside County and more conservative counties with some of the doubt that was cast by progressives probably was the reason they were able to build this coalition against prop 25. But it does feel like if you look at the kind of universe of all these that that is a bit of an outlier. It was a very complicated questions, so that may have been part of it. So do you think these results could actually encourage state lawmakers to go even further in the future? I do. Although I don't expect to see any dramatic huge reforms come out of the Legislature. I think we'll see what we've seen in years past, which is piecemeal attempts to kind of dismantle some of the harsher sentencing laws. I do think from the outside that we're going to see more pressure from advocacy groups to push the Legislature further. It's worth noting that just before the election The Sisters of Polly class who was one of the crime victims who has really helped spur the three strikes movement in California, came out to say that they want to see reforms and that they are unhappy with the way three strikes when the way their sister's name was used. So lawmakers may not go as far as voters, but they're going to get some pressure. Well, thanks

Yet her opponent is former San Francisco D A and former LAPD assistant chief George Gascon. He is running as a progressive prosecutor and says more needs to be done to address racial bias in law enforcement. They're systemic racism of the system, systemic racism that comes from the very creation along force in this country, which was deeply and better in the institution of slavery and continue that way for many years to come.

Striving For Justice with Quoc To
"Can you elaborate on this dream job thing I like. How and when did you dream of becoming a public defender? Like what does the story behind? I I mean. First of all I. It wasn't my dream job so much when we worked together prevention student comedy night. I I knew I wanted to do something social justice related At Ti we? We worked on one of the things that work. There was violence prevention, and that actually got me started on like looking at took one of the classes that. Are exactly record started their violence prevention as a public health issue, and so I just. Looking at looking at that and thinking I wanted to do something within the community I grew up in a poor underserved community community caller. You know a refugee we. We came over America on a refugee resettlement You know plan and I grew up in A. Poor, community stalled pitfalls of crime and I mean pitfalls, poverty and homelessness in lack of social services, and what does the? How that intertwined with you know criminal justice. Actually I haven't really shared this a with a lot of people, but in college. I don't know if you remember, but about. About like a a couple of weeks before the end of my second year I think that was your senior year. one of my fraternity mates got killed outside of our house I think it's like it was huge news at Berkeley right like profits class in nuclear engineering. Really I don't remember I apologize. There's there's a lot from my past. That's a blurb, but yeah. Yeah, yeah, so he was. He was stabbed outside Sigma Pi. And I was I was like there. I had seen him like minutes before that. So the trial unravelled a over the next couple of years and. It slowly some. If some of my about this podcast is GONNA be like! Wow, we didn't even know this, but you know when I was sitting in the through a case and going through that case I felt this. Kid You know when I learned more about it turns out like he was. Small was unemployed. She works for nonprofit. Is that I? Think was like construction work, but you either way. They came from a working class. Family went to public schools he went to. Berkeley High School nearby. And I sitting in that courtroom I kind of felt more. I felt like I empathize with him. You know 'cause he he. He reminded me of you know the people kids grew up with You Know An. Myself came through the environment and I know that I'm very fortunate to be where I'm at You know I you make your own luck, but a lot of it is you catch outbreaks along the way and I kind of was keenly aware of how close I was from not being at Berkeley, not being where I was. You know and so. I I couldn't help feel empathy for him, and so it kind of made me like. You know I wanted justice for my. My friend, who was killed tragically, but I I also felt like his kids GonNa. he kills one drunken site. Right and so I was like it gets convicted. He goes to prison. Justice just felt elusive, really lucid to me and I think that was experience was very transformative for me especially with my background everything that was going on knowing. Justice and so. You know I got to law school and I actually was recruited to help. Run A campaign for my one of my mentors. Ru Training is a form of public County new has private practice now. was running for DA and so if. I. Don't know people pay attention, but the recent election Cisco They elected a yes boden from the San Francisco, public office, but he wasn't I poetry a run for DA And so he ran. He ran for da I manage his campaign. Obviously lost George, GASCON Wanda year and but just being with him. Just he was like you know. I was working at A. A firm that summer I was out wasn't happy on civil, a civil work and I just wasn't happy. And like you got for public office and so I did. And I the next semester. A you know got got internship at Contra Costa Public Office and I fell over the work it just was. It was like this is what I WANNA do this. Would you know what to do and? Yet at the rest is history. That's. I mean. I'm very I've just having a moment just reflecting on How are passing cross? You know in in these ways enlightening, bring Larry and stuff, and like all the craziness of life in Prevention Institute essentially couple years older than you by essentially babies like really working on a on a very big trajectory that we had no idea what was about to happen, but it's I feel really I don't mean it patronizing me just so proud of you. That's audible and. It's not a small undertaking I mean like. Any any endeavor, especially dream because there's a lot of layers to that because I think be these big visions that we can have, I can feel very like. Larger than life, but like you actually went out and did it so i. just really proud of you. That's amazing
