John & Ken Show Hour 2 (03/11)

"So the dog was moving story. Great oh the blowing the bugle. No no no no. I personally asked that john. Remember that noise. can you played again. Okay i that's the infamous vuvuzelas zealous at the soccer. Yeah i a little flashback to those those sound very triumphant. Let's get the zeller's while blow your zella. Yeah it's because the recall gavin twenty twenty dot com campaign has exceeded two million signatures gathered two million sixty thousand total signatures. They are sending them over to the county registrar's office in the fifty counties. They say they have At least an eighty percent verification rate validity rate when they verify and that would give us one point six million good signatures over a hundred thousand more than is needed to trigger the recall. The recall is going to happen unless the democrats do illegal things behind closed doors. They need to be watched carefully over the next couple of months to see what they're gonna do. I'm sure they'll try to delay this election believing that as we move away from the pandemic that will fare well for newsom. Who knows but we'll be watching them because they're gonna vote. We know that you political weasels should be aware we are monitoring you. We have inside sources you try you will you will know about it. And we'll broadcasted obediently now. In fact we have cameras in each county. Registrar's office pretty cool that we're moving from one recall when it comes to signature gathering to another one which will start very soon. That's the one to remove. La county district attorney. George gascon from office. It has been a horrific train wreck for victims of crime and their families. Since this man took office in early december ninety days. They had to wait. They did now. They've submitted the paperwork and it won't be long before we'll have petitions. This is the guy that issued a mess of directives his first day in office all of them designed to do one thing. Don't send anybody to prison and try to empty the prisons. The criminals are now the victims. The victims are ignored. That's kinda the philosophy and it reduces the sentences drastically from death or life in prison without parole to maybe five years ten years twelve years seriously. we've gone through a number of cases just in the last couple of weeks cop killer instead of the death penalty. Maybe twelve years in prison. A guy who killed two sisters will be out in five years because they're going to charge him as a juvenile instead of giving him life without parole or the death penalty another guy who was on the verge of getting about a ten year sentence after raping and killing two little boys. Gascoyne was only stopped by last minute intervention from the orange county. Da todd spitzer right and then. The guy made a deal to stay in prison the rest of his life. Yeah but this is what we're up against. He wants to let child rapists child. Murderers murderers of young women cop killers dies. Who executed cops. He wants them all out it about ten years or less. And this is real. And we're gonna talk now with jennifer van laar managing editor at red state dot com because There's been a video of gas gone Talking to local democratic hacks and he's talking about the recall. And i guess she got a hold of his video jennifer. How are you pretty good. How are you. I'm fine. What's this video about. We're gonna play a bit of it in a few minutes but What's the story. Well they're actually About four or five videos. And just. Because i'm working all by myself. I'm getting them up as fast as i can. Because he had to say on a lot of topics but on the recall he basically accused recall. Proponents of being racist republicans who are using victims of violent crime and unconscionable ways it he would find unconscionable which. I don't know what that standard is for. George gaston some of his biggest critics are Deputy da on his own staff. So i guess he says they're unconscionable racists the deputy. Da must be that must be and the victim. The violent crime must not be able to think for themselves and be taken. Advantage of politically is funny. He says crazy things as such such a boring laid back demeanor but if you look at his words in print he it's really nuts. The stuffy says it really is you can be kinda ruled asleep by his speech pattern and then like you said when you look at the actual words it's amazing So he's not taking any responsibility at all for trying to slash the sentences of these vicious criminals. None he believe fully still believes that his plan of decarbonisation of letting these people out after even just a couple years or some of that are still awaiting trial giving them plea deals for time search. He thinks that is good for the community. He's still a cooley drinker on. That didn't even bring up. The surgeon crime was all about cops are bad recalled. People are racist. And that's it recall. People are racist What what What big name. Republicans is he going after he cites denis sign former a steve cooley and retired. Board of supervisors Mike antonovich who are co chairs of the recall campaign but it's victims of violent crime. Who started this recall campaign and started the committee. So does he think like some of the victims who've come on our show are also unconscionable racist. I mean we just had tanya own on the other day and she was the wife of a sheriff's deputy who got killed I guess now even her case. I guess she would be an intersectional kind of person because her husband having been a cough that kind of makes her racist and his eyes and then her being a victim of violent crime. He thinks they're kind of being brainwashed by these republicans who just wants to use victims for political gain. It's just think are being taken advantage of. Its earning extreme democrats state in an extreme democrat county and yet guess gonna newsom or make it sound like all the republicans are so powerful and they can't get themselves elected to anything i the but they seem to have a tremendous amount of power in these recalls. Sec kinda yeah and. He thinks that they're weaponising that both with him in newsom that republicans are weaponising recalls. And using it to overturn the will of the voter. Well if anything shows a little voter voter-rich every call. I see in your latest posting. Because you said you still reviewing these zoom conferences. He had with the democrats. It looks like the people who really wants to prosecute or police officers. He's wants to go back and look at use of force incidents for many years ago right and he he promised that campaign but last night he expanded it from fatal use of force cases to just use of force cases in general and he said dot even just use the force he wants to expand it to a potential police criminal behavior going back even to twenty twelve twenty twelve. He wants to go back nine years. And and look at these cases all over again because the complaints for the jackie. Lacey didn't do enough right and somebody's people could be retired. Could be out of state and who knows what the actual statute of limitations are for whatever crimes he might think they have done just. Jackie lacey was an unconscionable racist to right. It's all very ridiculous when you think about it with a logical brain jennifer. We thank you for providing us with this audio. We're going to play some when we come back. We're going to put up your stories to as you go through these these videoconferences of george gascon jennifer van. Laura's red states managing editor. Thanks for coming on. Thank you all right. We'll play some of this audio. Apparently the first one will play mentioned. Kfi and george gone was talking to culver city. Democrats democrat club zoom conference call. And he's asked about the recall he goes off on. Kfi and as jennifer just mentioned some of the political people behind the recall effort including former la county da. Steve cooley so do the culver city democratic club members do they think that somebody who rapes and kills a six year. Old child should be out in ten years. Got ask them that. But i i mean is. Is that an unconscionably racist. Stand to take in fact. I think that guy was white. Wasn't he yes. It's unconsciously racist to want a white child rapist hitler to be put away for more than ten years and i think he killed. One of the boys killed was latino. Yeah i that's why i'd like to ask the culver city democratic club any any pushback against guess counter. You people actually believe this stuff going to smoke everybody out here john and ken. kfi talk. Show john kobylt and ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. All right another politician that has been targeted for recall is the la county district attorney. George s combed his directives which took effect immediately are going incredibly easy on the most violent of criminals killers cop killers. You name it. We bought to yesterday's latest chapter that he might want to go back and re sentence and perhaps release people that have served certain amount of time already in prison inmate from yesterday was celebrating the news and made a video of it by sharing a drink of a jailhouse booze with his cellmate. Yes we so. We got prisoners and you should go track down that video there actually toasting that guests goan may be releasing them soon toast. This guy was killary killed another gang member. Oh yeah play. Play a little clip. It's short monday night right here in new balsam facility sally. Some white lightning the low cuff on salute celebrating us going on his direct. Yeah there you go celebrating. The gaskin direct that refers to that man murdered and now. He's so thrilled with gas goan. He's drinking white lightning in his jail cell. Where his cellmate celebrating. What he thinks will be a quick release new so high. So here's george gusts gone. You got this Audio courtesy of jennifer van lord with red state who we just talked to he speaking with the culver city democrat club. We're going to start with the cut here. Cut three where he talks about Kfi at the beginning of this. And i guess the subject is that he claims his office is not interfering with victims at participating in parole hearings. Let's listen a lot of misinformation that is going on there especially we have seen fox news. Kfi talk shows that is not the case. Here's we are doing. And here's what we wounded. The victim always has the right to be heard on under parole here. It s a constitutional right under the state of california traditionally. Our office and other prosecutors will go to parole hearing tool post parole release without any consideration to whether the person has rehabilitated or not so basically what. We often have what. We almost always do this. We somebody's in prison for ten fifteen twenty thirty years and the royals will go back and relitigate the case s. If this person was a semper assume that he or she was the case. Casey goal without any consideration. Thin has this personally wall. Has this first one rehabilitative what what is still a risk to public safety and what i said one of my direct. This was we are no longer going to send lawyers to oppose release. We will send victim services to stay with victim to provide trauma informed care and support if they decide to go to the hearing. We will also provide legal assistance to the victim so they understand what their rights are however parole hearing works. When do they have to go candidate. Do it remotely. What can they say out of. The system works so we. We are not going and opposing their release. We are providing legal assistance. And we're providing trauma informed care for those who want to if you listen to that carefully he's reversed everything he sing. O automatically they would go in oppose the parole without considering whether or not. This person has been rehabilitated. Reversing it. we're not going to oppose parole because we're going to do that. This person has been rehabilitated. Did you ever consider the fact that maybe you want to take a look do little a little research and find out on your own whether or not. This person's been rehabilitated. And if you think not send a prosecutor to oppose the parole what just because again the idea is. We don't want to oppose parole. Because you want these prisons empty. Well this this scott us whether or not this person has had any advancement in there. He doesn't care if they'd been rehabilitated or not. He wants them out of president. He wants out rice either. The rehabilitation debate is a smokescreen. He doesn't know if they've been rehabilitated. There's also overrated if if if you have if you're a psychopath and you actually have brain wiring that ll the kind of brain wiring or you don't have a conscience. You're not capable of remorse or regret. You cannot be rehabilitated. Because you literally don't have the brain structure to feel the remorse to be regretful of your actions. You don't feel other people's pain you don't have empathy because your brain is not structured to receive empathy. Singer can't be rehabilitated. Impossible which means you will commit more violent acts. 'cause they don't bother you most people would never even think of committing violent act. And if they did they would immediately be overcome with regret if they lost control in a moment but psychopaths don't they don't think it's a big deal. So gas has no way of knowing. Who could be rehabilitated. And who can't. It's impossible for him to know that unless the prosecutors are in there and they do some severe psychiatric evaluation and it's pretty easy to determine if somebody's a psychotic or not right when we come back with another clip will play. This is where we talk specifically about those proposing to recall him from office john and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt and ken chiampou kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. The la unified school district. School board is just approve. This quote deal between the union and the school district to reopen the schools. But you know for the middle and high school kids. They're just gonna go into a classroom open up their laptops and still do zoom still do online learning. We're gonna talk about it next hour because the complaint has always been just a bunch of white people who want the schools reopened with be talking to after four o'clock. They're a bunch of parents from south. La is is the only defense for all their incompetence is racism. The only thing. They're all screaming desk only screaming racism. Now he's play letting out murderers early and and the teachers union screaming racism because everybody wants their kids in school. I mean you're you've exhausted that word you'd better come up with another one. 'cause that's not worth getting more everyone's onto that racket. We are talking about la county da. George guests cohn who was on a conference call with the culver city democrat club. We got the audio courtesy. Jennifer van laura at red state. Here comes the clip where he talks about the recall. I take it very seriously. And i think that we need to You know. I think that there are some people that were unhappy with the results of the election and they immediately decided to try to undo the election by the way this group actually started a recall while three weeks after the elected they actually had to. We told you by law. You have to wait. Ninety days in k So you know it's just basically people were unhappy. They did not want to become the district attorney in one movement were pushing and they are now doing. Stop dennis second. It's excellent to point out here because it's hard to remember this. That he came out with these directives first day for first day of them right if it yes. I have the stack on on the desk in our office and it was to start resentencing people who'd already been convicted and it was to take cases that were currently in process and go to a judge and get the charges reduced dismissed and then future cases. They weren't gonna charge heavily anymore. So three parts to it and a judge issued a temporary restraining order on gas. Gone saying a lot of what he was doing was illegal because there was no it was not in the interest of justice and his deputy. Da -'s are sworn that if they're going to make a change or going to go back retroactively and make a change to a case it has to be in the interest of justice and none of the deputy. Da believed that because it wasn't and they're not allowed to lie and make a claim that they don't believe so the judge said don't you can't force the deputy as to do something that's illegal that is illegal that is illegal to coerce the prosecutors into why so that is one of the things that ignited the recall is one of his first acts was to demand that his entire staff of prosecutors start doing illegal things in court but he doesn't mention that does he and nobody at the culver city democratic club brought it up i guess in zoom meaning no no they did not want me to become the district attorney the one you know their movement were pushing and they are now doing this and you know unfortunately i you know i don't say this and that and a partisan way but it's really unfortunate that it seems to be drew my republicans right so we have sif cooley republican former district attorney very lock him up kinda guy then zayn former city council and former member the la police protective league a republican Tunnel wish former of four supervisors are republican and they have taken if you victims of crimes. That are very traumatized. And they're using them in ways that i find unconscionable so i say this to tell you some people started to want it to immediately invalidate the the will of the voters over two million people vote for me to you all and And i take a service now. Think stop a second. The centerpieces of this campaign is that gas gone. Did not when he was running explain that he was going to go for a ten year sentence for a guy who's raping and killing little boys. That was not an issue in the campaign or a guy who shoots two sisters to death is only going to get five years or a guy who executes. A cop was only gonna get twelve years. He didn't run on that so his his whole campaign was a fraud. He talked vaguely about reform. That's one of those overused tired meaningless words. What he planned to do his bulldoze the system and he defrauded everybody. You hold that election today. He's not getting a majority vote. It could run against a vegetable. He's not going to get a majority vote because nobody wants this. Nobody who's aware of what's going on wants this. Jackie lacey had these ads and been talking to people like tanya owen about her husband's steve case but have been powerful stuff against gascoyne. If we knew then what he was going to do now he would not have won that election. Continue with the clinton and take service. Now don't think that we need to prepare for that much sleep. You know people are going up to the governor. You know that. I think that we we need to you know i agree that a democracy requires involvement and people. Should you know the nice doll. He's dangerous he's boring. If he was a kind of a wild eyed loud belligerent radical than it would be really clear it would breakthrough but he's so damn boring. I don't think anybody paid attention to whatever the hell he was saying. I mean i don't think most people pay attention. Da campaigns and and to the extent that attention was paid like kermit the frog well. Let's get to. We can get to the racist part here. I think it's coming up soon. You can recall processes in the constitution. I respect that. But i think that will we're seeing is basically saying a very abusive way of taking the mock proceed to another level and really trying to disrespect the will of the people much like frankly people still believed that. Donald trump was elected right. I mean on the sun mentality And you see this over. Frankly i've seen in in my own recall effort. No we're seeing some of the comments very racist comments so not going to save that everyone involved in the recall is for races. That is really interesting. Hall jerez immediately starts to play a role And you know there's a lot of code talk. That is worn on here as well so you know gene. I take it very seriously. I hope you do too Because the work that we're doing this real world historical moment just buster so there you go code talk. Yeah he's talking about stuff that people posted online that he proceeds us racist. I don't have it is. It is the oldest tactic in the world. You take the most extreme people and make it sound like that is the mainstream of opposition. Everybody in politics does that. You take the people on the crazy and and say well. That's what they're about. That's representative of this entire movement. He knows that's not true. But people people say those things because they know the media will repeat the lie over and over. And i question about and it was. There's always a little disclaimer. I'm not saying everyone racist. yes you are. that's what you said. I want that out there but listen. You're the racist because if you get everything you want accomplished. Who's gonna get killed. It's going to be black and hispanic people. They're gonna get killed the most. They're going to be victims of crime. There already by far the victims of violent crime in los angeles by far black and hispanic victims. Okay so there's just going to be more. Black hispanic victims are the race. Wheatly is that he has taken away. The sentence enhancements for the use of a gun. We're seeing the explosion in gun sales and people with guns and shootings. Yeah here in l. a. County la city since this guy took office and just those three and more young black men die because gascons policies. We got more coming up. Everything is a trick and misdirection. John and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt and ken. Chiampou kfi am six. Forty live everywhere. The iheartradio app that will prove to you that there are parents in the communities that have been hard as tipped by covid. Nineteen in la. County south la. Parents have a group they want. The schools reopened will talk to one of the representatives. They're having a rally plus we'll find out what they think about this school reopening deal which leaves what they call these secondary school students middle and high school students sitting there in a classroom and still doing distance learning. It's bizarre. But that was their answer. We found out yesterday from the superintendent of the palestinians unified school district that that's just a recommendation philly county. I don't have to do that. All the unit fights decided to go that far. All this stuff is a recommendation. All the The the school opening and closing rules all the Vaccine tears another set at ears. All these tears are just recommendations. It's it's not law. you're not going to get sued. You're not gonna be put in jail each down restaurants though no but that was. That was the county's remember the counties were deciding sometimes to be more restrictive than the states this and and you and and sometimes the state would put out recommendations and sometimes they would put out statewide restrictions. You have to determine between the to hear. The school stuff is just recommendations. Yeah i guess. I don't really know how that works. And anyway the science is proven in fact a story today that The cdc says you know kids can be three feet apart instead of six. Now we just got word from the la county health department. That some time on monday march fifteenth at twelve one am and wednesday march seventeenth. We're going to the red tier excited. John and it's going to start opening up more businesses museums. Zoos and aquariums can open indoors. Tell me twenty five percent. The gyms fitness centres yoga dance studios. They get ten percent. Tell me why a console restaurants at twenty five percent. Yes so i could have cost a walmart. Be open but a museum. Can't there's no science there. have you been to a costco. You see how many people are in those. Those are considered essential food items. But they're still lots of people gathering there it's in the constitution that you can buy in bulk but there's no there's no danger he's anybody gotten sick shopping in a grocery store. What's the proof of that. They claim the workers have. But they haven't because it's how because because they cluster and break members to couple of grocery stores they said because of outbreaks yet. Because that's that's in their in their Break room area where they have their lockers where they socialize. That's where it happens. Remember seventy five percent of people are catching it indoors at their house or somebody else's outs. Schools are permitted to reopen for in person instruction for students in grades seven through twelve that becomes official and my favorite private gatherings can occur indoors with up to three separate households. Now but asking and distance shot wired. Oh just shut up. People are gonna get together. Go to just go do what you want if you few of vaccine why. Why is there a limit on how many people you you can. You can see. That's the vaccine. Rules are different Well yeah but you don't have gatherings people were fully. Vaccinated can gather in small numbers indoors with other. People are fully vaccinate without masks. Why small numbers that makes no sense. That's nonsense if you're vaccinate think adding people will just add to the odds of something of what if everybody's vaccinated what there's there's no but they're not one hundred percent two packs but if everyone's vaccinated they they can't give the virus to anybody else. Oh oh they could. But we don't know they can't you're vaccinated. Why are we doing this that you if you put one hundred vaccinated. Don't get really sick. But you get vaccinated right. So you're not doing it so you can't transmit the virus you can't you're going to see you can transmit the virus and besides that you're not even if somebody comes in who's vaccinated and they transmit the virus you're not going to get it What did you say you can't get the virus if everybody in the rooms vaccinated. That's not possible. I'll bet see it is but it's really really really small chance. Well then that's how we're living our life now standard some infinitesimally small chance. Yes that's exactly. What the county's awesome. Tell them to stick it up their Their opening their their opening. I seriously if you pretend people in a room or vaccinated twenty people fifty people. It's all the same. The risk is zero. They're all vaccinated enough of this nonsense. I just keep it. Small groups remember safety first. Were saving lives here. Something you'll get. Yes you're right. I get any of it. It's a load of crap we're gonna be talking next about controlling people of member of women of watching beyond they represent south. La parents and kids. They're having their own rally about reopening the schools. We'll find out what that is will find out how they feel about this. La unified school district deal to reopen schools for the older students on a very limited basis. Coming up next. John and ken show debra mark has news. Kfi am six forty.

John & Ken Show Hour 3 (02/17)

"John and ken show john kobylt and ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Well we're once again. Going to return to the story of the la county district attorney. George on it doesn't. It seems like a week doesn't go by where we have another horrendous case where this out of control district attorney here in la county just a couple of months on the job wants to shake everything up but basically what he wants and talking about the worst of the worst. He wants to make sure that they don't go to prison for a very long time. And apparently have a shot at freedom. And we're talking about murderers this should be talking about. Kenneth cast rasmussen a fifty three year. Old man who got nabbed a few years back a cold case murder from nineteen eighty one and it was the case of Jeffrey vargo he was found dead in a gora hills. He's from anaheim hills. He was six at the time in. Nineteen eighty one. I think he was found. Dead in pomona was found dead in pomona. Excuse me He they think that rasmussen killed another boy in agoura hills in my six. Oh this guy has so Sa- jeffrey vargo It wasn't as two thousand fifteen that they matched. The dna rasmussen also has convictions for sexually assaulting two other southern california boys in nineteen eighty one and nineteen eighty seven. So this extremely sick bastard. He served two separate prison terms for molesting an eleven year old boy. He lord in seclusion before sodomising him and abducting a three year old boy from the boys front yard in la before later. Sodomising him and leaving the child wandering naked on the street the next day. Now in this case. Jeffrey vargoz riding his bike near his home in anaheim hills. Rasmusen is charged with abducting him. The boy's body was found the next day. Twenty five miles away at a construction site in pomona. So we're gonna talk now with bob and connie vargo jeffries. Parents who've had to live with this for almost forty years now and You know again. It's todd spitzer orange county. Da wants to take the case away from gas cone because he doesn't want gas cone reducing the potential sentence by not charging all the enhancements. That should accompany cry. Connie and bob thanks for coming on. Thank you for having us on Obviously this is very difficult to talk about. But you must be very happy that todd spitzer going to take the case away from george. Try to we try to say you know. I am so glad that finally somebody is doing something because once we heard about the gas gone and no longer First of all the The death sentence is off the table as you know in california even though we all voted for it and second of all that this guy now will no longer be able to be charged for life without parole. That means that he can get twenty years to life but have credit for the time that he's already been in jail which as you know he was. He was Arrested in two thousand sixteen. So two thousand fifteen. I'm sorry two thousand fifteen so he already has five years credit. Now they don't get full credit for the you know it's like one day for every two or whatever but even so he could get out and fourteen or fifteen years. That is just wrong. This man is a monster. A monster as you know he. Has you know sodomized a two or three year. Old boy left him out in a field naked sodomized at eleven year. Old boy he murdered our son. He murdered another six year old boy and a girl hills. How much more do you have to do to stop this man. He's been in jail. And he's not been rehabilitated. And he never should see the light of day again. In our opinion did has he been charged officially with the old. Da lacy. oh yeah Yes the old delay the old Excuse me the da. jackie lacey. I actually wrote a letter to them because this guy was willing to plead guilty and go to jail for the rest of his miserable life but no they wanted to have a capital case. And you know. Put him to death. Well you know that probably would never happen in california but So i wrote a letter to jackie lazy. This has been a couple of years ago. And actually they embedded on my husband. And i and older send it to Visit them and we spoke to joseph esposito and he let us know that this guy was the worst of the worst and he is on a chemical with the where they determine if somebody should have the death penalty and he told us connie and bob this is the worst of the worst and seeming like and this man should never see the light of day again. And that's why we want to have the death. Penalty voted on. It and i told him at that point. I says well you've taken us over to the dark side. All right and so if they would have done that in the first place taking the taking the guy put him out for life. Without possibility of parole he would already be in jail. And i don't know if gascon could say. Oh well he's really a nice guy so let's let him out however that would have been all done but no they had to have that capital case and now because of kobe you know they couldn't have twin-aisle we had a preliminary in two thousand. They also are letting people out early. Once they passed the age of sixty. It's called elderly. So i don't even know if he would get if i don't even know three right. Now he might not get the fifteen or the twenty years life. You might get seven years wait. He's not fifty three. He was fifty three when he was arrested. He is now if the eight or fifty nine years. So yeah you're right. Exactly he would even get out maybe earlier. That is know what a six year old boy is. Happy go lucky riding his bike and some muster does this to him. And i can't even imagine the last few hours are moments of my son's life and you know and and it tears us up every time that you know things and you know next next week it'll be somebody elses news but this is very emotional and difficult on us. Go through this again and say the whole story again and again and then nothing happens. He has been. He was arrested six years ago and they had a preliminary entrance and nothing has happened. Fifty eight now than he was probably eighteen when he did this old. How could somebody be that vicious at nineteen years old and you know it was a cold case worker that worked on that case and she found a dna evidence ran into cobra's she called us one sunday morning and said bowden county. We found the man that murdered your son. This was thirty five years later. We never thought that they would find anybody. We were totally shocked. I mean you could have blown my shoes up. We were so we couldn't believe it now at thirty five years later. Why don't you aren't counting. Hold on a chance to talk to bob. You're sharing the phone there so to come back. This is connie vargo and her husband. Bob is also on the line there from anaheim hills in orange county. Six six-year-old son. Geoffrey disappeared in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety was kidnapped and he was murdered and his body was found in pomona and it took until twenty fifteen through the use of dna in the world of today's technology to track down the killer who they believe is a man by the name of kenneth rasmussen who is almost fifty nine years old but he was already in prison in fact he'd been released and was a tusk darrow and then he got released from there and he went to back to idaho where he's from but he attacked two other boys and they believe he killed another six year old boy. And the reason we're talking about this specifically is because the la county da. George gascon doesn't want to go with a special circumstance murder charges which could result in certain rest of his life. Prison time for rasmussen. It's possible he could be out and fifteen years without those special circumstances in orange county. Da todd spitzer his on the spot here trying to take the case back to orange county away from la county. We'll talk more. We come back. John and ken. Kfi we were talking to a couple from anaheim hills. Connie and bob vargo. It's another important story concerning the la county district attorney george gascon and his unwillingness to file severe charges against even murderers talking about a man by the name of kenneth rasmussen. That's who's in question here. And he already had a history of sexually assaulting boys talking about three year olds six year olds eleven year olds and he went to prison for that. But thanks to cold-case and solving cases in twenty fifteen they linked him to the murder of connie. Bob's son geoffrey. Back in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. He was living in anaheim hills at the time and but his body was found in pomona in la county. So that's why it's an la county murder case and todd spitzer entered the scene because guests goons unwillingness to apply special circumstances. Charges could leave the possibility that this guy could end up being paroled. We believe he's fifty eight or fifty nine years old and he might be out in fifteen years ask on has moved to dismiss special circumstances and Has moved to take the case to orange county. And we we talked with connie. And now we're gonna talk with. Bob vargo the father bob. Thanks for coming on with us. I thank you for taking the time to put us on. How how did gas cones actions make you feel. Well i saw that and All of a sudden. I started getting red and i started to get very very mad and when i get mad i get upset and you don't wanna be around me because i was very very irate and You know to to think that a guy would do something like that and this gas gone. He from what i read in the papers. He said that if a prosecuting attorney if a if an attorney goes to a hearing in his in his in his courtroom he He says i don't want them in there. The only way they could be in there is if they say something nice about him. Well how can you say something nice about somebody. You're you're on the opposite side of the law with it'll courtroom. I mean just that there seems to be no criminal. The gascon doesn't want to give a break to. I mean was killing and sexually abusing young. Boys it doesn't get it all worse than this that's right this guy razz. My son. He one of the one of his victims he was also six years old. He grabbed them off the school bus when he got home from school and he sexually assaulted him and he stabbed him eleven times it is torso and he took his pants. It's the boys pants and wrapped it around his neck and choke them to now. What kind of person is that. He doesn't deserve to be on the face of this earth. Oh no guy's gonna remember. He said there would be no exceptions to his rule against a special circumstances but then i thought he was going to make an exception for cases involving children abuse. I think he would make an exception in the case of these murder. Have you talked to anybody on his staff know though we have talked to absolutely nobody from from his office the only The only person that Has contacted us was deputy district attorney. Who was working on her case. You can talk to gascoyne. What would you say to him. Afraid i can't say that on the air. Let's see pleasant to know the so so often. I just i think i would say to him. Do you have children or grandchildren. And and if you do what would you feel if somebody came up and did that to one of them. Would you feel bad at all. Would you want this guy. That'd be walking the streets again. I think you would turn around. Walk away because he he might be ashamed of of everything. I guess you're rooting for todd. Spitzer to get the case is going to be a hero in pomona spitzer. Oh yeah oh yeah. Will you be able to be a part of that hearing or i guess you can't i don't know i don't know the law works in funny ways. Well well we keep we keep on top of this you you count the most. Yeah bob wanna keep on top of this so keep in touch with our producer all right and let us know what's going is this is really a and it doesn't get any more vicious and horrible than this bob and connie go. Thank you for calling. I don't know. I don't know how many other kids have been affected. I mean he may have some other kids in the last twenty years or so. The nobody knows anything about harry possible. Thank you both for coming on art. We will of course talk more about this case and we'll see what happens monday with this hearing. Todd spitzer wants to take the case to orange county for these for this murder. More coming up john and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt and ken. Chiampou kfi am six. Forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Hey boy slide fans leave your messages one. Eight seven seven voiced eighty six. Maybe you've never left a message but this is your week. One eight seven seven six six four seven eight six. And we'll see if you make it into the playback of calls on the five o'clock hour. Friday steve gregory is going to be at five o'clock at apparently barbara for rare did have something to say about that. La county health department inspector. Who did the dance at that brewery lancaster after she shut it down on super bowl sunday john trinta chop raw woman checked into shot her name. Yeah i know it is. I just like to say that. I edit rehearse it we will. We'll find out the woman should be rebuked word it's in the la times every other day. Rebuke yeah i know. There's a lot of rebuking that needs to go on. It sounds like when eat something banned it comes up your throat and you review your buke right now on the matter of the recall. The sec had this story. The actor kevin sorbo. That is john. The actually i do. I didn't think you watch that show in the eight of the nineties. It was something that show. He's the legendary journeys no there there was. There was a reason he was working on a movie idea that could have involved us. Oh i didn't know that Yeah i told you about it but it just never came through. And i don't think i mentioned is no. He tweeted out something the other day. And set the the sacramento bee into one of these fact check modes. He claimed the california requires signature verification for petitions to recall gavin newsom but not for mail in ballots tweet implied the state was giving scrutiny to the vote last november than it was to the republican led effort to oust newsom now. Apparently the tweet got shared and was all over the place of the truth. Is they're supposed to verify all signatures. I knew that i would not have passed along that kind of information. But this was a jaw dropper you know what. The percentage of california votes were done by mail in the november election. Eighty five percent. Is that right. Yes what it sets you. See i at one point. It was going fifty fifty. But i didn't know. Wow i know. The pandemic was a factor in this. But well you see what in person. But i vote by mail person. There was nobody else there. Because i i just i just i. Just don't trust mail voting systems right. That's that's my particular thing and while i never joined. The election was stolen crowd on this. And i never saw any evidence for that to be true and they certainly tried at sixty one different courts. What bothers me is. There is no verification system. Here you should. You should show up in person with a voter. Id and and and That that's the way. The system should work. If you use a mail system. You are inviting potential mayhem at the very least you lose the public's trust which is what happened to a very large extent is people don't trust the system because they know what's capable not that it happened but that it's capable of happening well here. Here's my question. And i want to be very specific about this and i do understand that it says here. State code requires california county elections officials to verify the signatures on every vote by mail ballot initiative every referendum every recall petition and every candidate nomination document. I'm just asking the question. How closely do they look in other words when they were flooded with all of those mail in ballots. Did they spend a lot of time verifying signatures or did they do employment development department thing and just said well. We're dated let it go. Because i did not see any story of saying that. Their signature was challenged from the general election. You know. I did not all right and now a lot of votes. Now you're onto so now with the recall petition sledge slow me it's going to be the same and i doubt it. Let's look all these agencies here that we know of. We know how the employment developed department ran right. They didn't verify thousands and thousands of applications and on those applications. You're supposed to fill out all kinds of personal information. That can be verified. Correct if you write down doing if you write down you work for the x. Company their check and make sure you were employed by the x. company and there's a public record of that because we're all paying taxes and this check that you're not in prison right exactly that they had the list of prisoners so based on how the e. d. d. runs we just one example there just that one. We can come up with a whole lot of others. And secondly i i find people in politics on all sides. Speed largely dishonest a holes. That's my default position. You're a dishonest. A whole entail you prove otherwise. Okay guilty until proven innocent. I don't trust who's going through these. These petitioned the recall petition. Their done behind closed doors. They're done by a democratic administration. Whose leader can be potentially thrown out of office. Now i just don't trust it. There have been examples. Look what they tried josh. Doom in a few years ago the legislature went to work at enacted. All these laws to try to obstruct the having the actual recalled timely manner. And then they were able to delay it through. Its he's still got recall. Thank god but they pushed it all and those laws are still there and they can end their push. The newsom rebel back the day story and the be says the if there isn't election for the recall it it could possibly happen this year later in the year but it might happen in two thousand and twenty two right so what i'm saying. Is we have a lot of dishonest people. And and all they believe in is loyalty to their party. They don't care about your life by life they don't care if you get the virus and die they don't care if you get a vaccine they don't care if your child gets educated or not i but we have the most racist education system. I've ever seen right now. Where in los angeles county eighty percent of the kids are minority. Eighty percent in poverty and the largely white government is refusing their education. And so i don't trust them. I think a lot of them are bad. People are evil people their destructive people. They're power hungry. They've gotten addicted to controlling everyone's life far beyond what the circumstances warrant no matter. How many scientific surveys come out there. Still grasping onto their power and trying to control us. Destroy our businesses. Destroy our schools. Destroy our children's lives. Destroy our marriages because so many people are working unhappy and drinking and taking drugs. That's what i think of them. And all i'm saying is they're going to be taken out the magnifying glass and look very carefully to all these recall petition signatures because you right number one. They'll be less than than there. Was that people that voted in november but number two. it's an important democratic state official and we've got to be very certain about this but with the with the ballots that they got last november up. Betcha they shove most of them through without checking every secretary of course of course and there's there's no observers for this there's no independent observers to count the petitions they can do whatever they want behind closed doors. And what are we going to do. And then they're gonna say evidence well of course there's evidence if you do everything in secret. Are we going to get evidence. We got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt and ken. Chiampou kfi am six forty everywhere on the iheartradio app. Right steve gregory along. I will have those numbers for your recall. Numbers versus explanation numbers. Much as we can trust vaccination numbers who knows. Steve is an update on that brewery. Lancaster where the health department inspector came in his shut them down on super bowl sunday and then she was caught on surveillance video. Do a little dance and join herself. And i guess barbara ferrer chief medical officer. Kelly county had something to say about that. We'll find out what it was coming up in the news at a raft of the news at five o'clock do you ever yesterday. We mentioned that. Superwealthy bill gates. The microsoft co-founder came out and said it may be necessary for us here in the united states to give up regular hamburgers and instead eat synthetic beef yes to reduce carbon emissions from livestock. Breitbart did a funny story. They went back and they took a look at an interview in two thousand sixteen. Joe cerrell managing director of the gates foundation told the telegraph. it's uk publication that a meeting with gates included hotel rooms full of diet coke and cheeseburgers for lunch. The matter who you were if you get the lunchtime slot with bill you're eating burgers. Someone will always be sent to get bags. Mcdonald's because i don't think melinda let some have them at home the old husband has to hide his see dietary choices. Tell my friends every guys living in the same house. Every guy has exactly the same experience with his wife. I let my husband eats a crap that i don't eat raw john's life does too. I don't think you've you've never given him a lecture about black lab. But he but he ignores me doesn't even hide it. Do find jesse tries yes. Husayn says some then some men bow to it and then they have to seek around the sean food. They're week no husband has ever lectured their wife about vegetables. It's never happened. But every life is lectured their husband about me. What about the vegan husbands. They're not husbands. What are they then try. I don't know there's also pictures of bill gates at a place called dick's burgers in seattle. He's a fan of burgers now. Maybe he gave them up recently because he stories are a couple of years old. No no no no. I had a sixty minutes story on sunday night. Yeah he took anderson cooper to a local burger joint. It was a fast food joint not mcdonalds but similar. So i guess. He's saying that he'll do a to. He'll eat synthetic beef. He didn't say that. I didn't see the interviews via mitee technologies. He a little different. He doesn't really annoy me the way a lot of these Scolds do because he's really coming from a point is like here's what we have to do. He's being realistic. In order to reduce the greenhouse effect. We have to change everything right. Everything and here theoretically is how we could do it. They could make synthetic beef. It's not gonna taste the same but you'll get used to it. He's not eating synthetic beef and he's not even telling anyone else do. He admits he flies a private plane right but he then he did the old But i'm spending millions of dollars on carbon offsets which everybody knows a scam. So so i. I understand what he's saying. He's sketching out a world of fantasy. Utopia that will never come to pass. Oh okay because of his logical kind of microsoft mind he's just well. Let's go to this. He can't help it all right. He looks at the world. He sees all these complex problems and he can't help but apply is brain. If we're going to solve this how would we do it. And and he's not. It's not a real political doctrine because like he is big on nuclear power in fact they were showing off designs of a new modern nuclear reactor. That would not fail in the way. Chernobyl date or three mile island or that one in japan. He says an entirely different systems. So you wouldn't have the problems that caused those things to implode high coming up next. We'll be talking to st gregory. But we were. I gotta give you the rundown on the vaccination and recall numbers. Would you really want a husband noon. Vegan yeah yeah then we can share. We share food together. Yeah i mean that's not. Obviously that's not a breaking point. I think it was my husband's five. Are women would be interested in men who are because they because they because they don't eat meat they really there's an people buried to. I don't think women are really interested in men who don't work. Well i would not be interested in and around the doesn't work. That's very different than the guy that doesn't he will be interested in women who don't work there. I mean there is a difference between right. So i just i just think. In general women find out a guys vegan. I don't think so. John and ken show debra mark has news. kfi am six forty.

John and Ken Show Hour 3 (02/10)

"John and ken show john kobylt ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Half the show is gone but we got a lot to get to. You'll have another chance on our show at the thousand dollars or the keyword coming up in about fifteen minutes for then tim. We'll do it again. Around six twenty here gavin newsom get heckled next hour will play that door with the audio. On his anti recall tour today the stop was fresno to take a look at the high speed rail. Or is it anywhere near there anyway. He was in fresno making his pitch. And yeah guy with a bullhorn recall gavin. We'll talk about that. And we do have new numbers on signatures collected in the recall effort against gavin newsom new vaccination number steve. Gregory will be here. Talk more about that dodger stadium fiasco from yesterday where thousands who had appointments didn't show up because of a messaging snafu. That's ridiculous so all this on the way. I can you remember time where so many things were so screwed up in eight. Maybe gray davis was governor. We had huge deficits. We have no electricity. Yeah close it. Said spent a while. We're going to talk now with brian claypool. We've had him on many times. He's represented Families whose Little children have been sexually or physically abused or killed. And he's now representing john khatami. We've had on the show a number of times. He's a deputy district attorney and he got the murder convictions against the mother and the boyfriend in the gabriel fernandez case that Little thing he was eight years old and he got us just brutalized and killed. And it's a whole big netflix series. You can watch. I hear i hear There's a few references to our show in that series And khatami has come on the show recently because he's rebelling against the da. George gascon gascoyne had forced the deputy. Da as to Drop sentencing enhancements for Violent criminals He wanted them to Take enhancements away. From criminals who'd already been sentenced and jailed No three strikes enhancements you. You know the story by now significantly reduced prison time. Because he thinks that's what he was elected to do to let the criminals loose quicker or not even send them to prison. If that's possible now the other day a judge told guests cone that a lot of what guests going wanted to do is illegal and he put a temporary blackout it but now john had tommy is filing a lawsuit against gas cone for defamation and racial discrimination and his attorney brian claypool was klay to law firm bryan show many times before and always makes a great case. Let's see what's this one brian. Hey guys yes. Thanks for having me back. So what is it john. Had tommy say his boss did. Yeah so this. This is unprecedented if you can imagine. So you've got one of the top deputy district attorneys in the country right. He's been with the fifteen years. He is now suing his boss while he continues to work at the da's office. And here's why Gas gone went on this rampage. Starting back in early november where he used reference for example to some some difficult people in the da's office as being what's called internal terrorist. Well we know who that was directed at his treasury john. Tommy because he was the only one speaking out at that. Time is just so your listeners. Know john has a middle eastern background His father i believe is my muslim descent. And he's got some iranian in his blood too so you you you tell me to start with this guy. Gas gone supposed to be a leader. He's supposed to take over takeover the largest shift of a thousand prosecutors in la county the biggest department in the country and instead of walking in sitting down and talking to some of the leadership and his department he defamed and racially Discriminates against the one person that speaking up against him. 'cause that's the first thing he did this on television do yeah exactly on television and and and and and they also on television called john. Tommy delusional and unfit for his job. Okay so brace yourself. This goes beyond those comments. Go beyond john tommy right. We're we're suing for defamation by the way just your listeners. Though that's what's called liable per se which means when you challenge the fitness of somebody to do their job and it's public publicized like that you've got damage is already built in. You don't even have to put up damages but let's put that aside for a moment. Here's how irresponsible our la county district attorney's by calling. John itami unfit on television and delusional. He has now exposed the seventy files currently the john's working on to prosecutorial misconduct right. Because all of the defendants in those cases are now gonna file potentially file motions against john as not doing his job properly having some other motivation so there could be liability for the county on those cases. Let's move on one more thing. Remember the gabriel fernandez case. You guys talked about right that it gets even worse. Because in that case now lawyers for sorrow a aguire believes named the the boyfriend who tortured and murdered. Gabriel right so in that case what gas gone did and by the way by the way. That's never met john. Tommy those the that coffee never said hide each other really and he they have never even met dude. Not one second. As as this guy's gone mr coming on his his his Lear jet into la county and and and it doesn't spend second withdrawn he. He's never walked in john shoes. John's tried over seventy felony Trials dash guns probably none. You haven't stepped in a man shoes you can't go and smear and toss him under the box right. Well here's what he did. On gabriel fernandez. It's chilling he gets on tv and other tv. I think it was spectrum right. Tv he says that oh. Let's talk about the downtown only and let's talk about gabriel fernandez. He said that the only reason john khatami one for the death penalty on that case was because of his ego right. That's that's horrible. Number one number two. He lies he then says on. Tv that that that a wire you know the the the boyfriend who murdered gabriel tortured them that that that john had made an offer for life without parole and wire turned it down. And that's the only reason why john that's through. It went through to seek the death penalty. Not kind work fiction and it's both. John never made any kind of plea offer to wire. Why is that important. Well because now lawyers for This this murder and molester are gonna file motions on appeal to try to get his sentence reduced because of your newly elected. Da george gascon In your press release it said that gascoyne claimed that had tommy's ego had been hurt by aguire choir had rubbed a tommy. The wrong way and that aguire was not the heavy in this case. Now aguire was the boyfriend who tortured and murdered little. Gabriel fernandez right. That's a great corner. I mean he was not the heavy and implying that khatami was the problem. Gas gone on the side of the killers. Yeah child killer exactly so so so and by the way before. I even respond to your questions so your listeners know gas gone. I'll bet you a million dollars has never even spent a second reviewing any of the filed materials and the gabriel fernandez case. Okay let's get that straight and he doesn't even know the facts of that case but exactly he's saying that the tommy makes a plea offer to wire. And i and i did see the netflix series. You guys you watch it. It is terrific. What gabriel went through a wireless feeding him kitty litter dirty kitty litter forcing them to live in this little covered like a little cupboard but putting that aside he he said gosh gone says that john makes a plea offer to to wire which is false. That never happened. And that aguire says no. I'm not gonna take your plea offer and that. And that's when john then decided to go for the death penalty. It is a flat-out lie guys because committee. There's a committee within the da's office that determines whether a death penalty saw right and it takes months. You have put up evidence. It's gotta be bounced around people in a committee. It was wasn't john's decision the and made a decision to go for death penalty but he was smearing john making john look like like like he's in it for himself that he's in for fame and little does he know that john's a human being john's got two kids john's john's got a wife that's in law enforcement And john surf seven years in the us army. What about you gas gone. can you hang on. Yeah hold down. Just as brian. Claypool with the claypool law firm. He's got a new client. It is deputy district attorney. John had tommy. Who's been in our show several times. He has been vocal destroyed. Tommy against la county district attorney. George gascon over these directives.

Brian claypool has been on our show many times representing families and victims of child sex abuse and child abuse. He's got a new client. It's john tommy a la county. Deputy district attorney has been on our show a couple of times to express his displeasure with la county. Da george gaskins new directives. The most important of which was eliminating sentence enhancements which can add significant prison time for very. We're talking about murderous here. We're gonna talk about petty thieves or anything like that. We're talking about murderers that's what gascon wants to do. In order to keep people out of prison and allow the criminals to walk among us gas gone and his spokes whole matt's zibo have said publicly and guests going on television that Tommy is an internal terrorist. Tommy is part iranian. His father is muslim. So tommy got the message. What guests going was referring to and Max zibo says the biggest threat to public safety is the cabal of rogue. Da's also said on television. Tommy's delusional theories wait raise questions as to his fitness to practice law. And so that's what the the lawsuit is about. So i i've never seen a public official act in such a nasty aggressive demeaning manner towards their employees. He gascon was the one who wants had tommy and the rest of them do something that a judge said was illegal. Yeah does this. Does this sound like an effective leader. I mean i'm just listening to you. Guys did describe that you come onto a new job. You should be talking to your crew. You should be on the same team and and and this guy got gonna cronies they simply have no boundaries. They think they were elected. He thinks he was elected to just ignore existing laws. Create his fantastic new directives so that net flicks can follow him around and he can become famous. Well i've got news for guys gone and his bunch of cronies when you start when you start attacking the the moral fiber of the deputy. Da -'s in la. Then then you're gonna pay the price and not only. Are they gonna pay the price or have to be consequences guys for this because this is this is abusive power at the highest level. Let's just stock with gas. Gone and sabo. Let's talk about another group of individuals you all of us have talked about for years. Now in the anthony avalos gays no quattro case. It's called the la county board of supervisors. If we forget about them we would. They've done nothing to help on the avalanche pace. They've done nothing to give us a hard time on the quattro case and now john hitani just so your listeners know he wrote a letter to letters to all of the board of supervisors saying the following. Hey ladies and gentleman. This is awful our newly elected. Da is making racially Incendiary remarks he's defaming. Can you please do something about this. Guess what. John got radio silence except for one phone. Call from chief of staff and catherine barger and that's it. Nobody has stepped up from leadership with the board of supervisors are no oversight at all of gas gone but we when the sheriff did something allegedly wrong. Didn't they come out and and and yeah godly. What happened here. You got mr. You got mr Mr white privilege in the in the in the in the da's office here and nobody. Nobody guys stepped up and said one thing about this internal terrorist comment. The you know in all of your listeners know is categorically patently racist and not one supervisor has stepped up to say a single word about that to denounce that in to retract. And before we finish. I'll let you know this john. Tommy is is a good man. He went to gas gone through gascons lawyers right because got sons. Never met him and said hey. Can you ask george if he can apologize. And guess what. The answer back was no no. I'm not apologizing for that there you go. That says it all i. Brian will keep up with you on this Thanks for talking to us once again. You bet thanks for having me appreciate you. Brian claypool with a new suit against george guest on a civil suit abihu employees in the la county da's office by the name of john. Had tommy a deputy. Da and it is over a discrimination. Tommy's been outspoken against gascons new policies and He's been retaliated. Against and i guess he's decided to fight back with the suit. We got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi john and ken show can use john. Kobylt and ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app day after tomorrow brings us back to the voice line leaving messages. Twenty seven seven moist eighty six one. Eight seven seven six six four seven eight eight six. We were once again talking about the la county da. George gascon lebron on the job two months but wow already are horrific legacy. He is of course on the side of the criminals not the victims. Not their fam- mentioned the way he's going after john. Tommy one of the star prosecutors tommy. You know went after the the mother and boyfriend who killed little gabriel fernandez. He's a hero prosecutor. He's one of the best out there. And instead guess going calls him a terrorist. And coincidentally tommy's father was muslim and he's part iranian kuzma terrorist tells him delusional unfit to practice law between he and his spokesman matt sabo and they said this on television and he won't apologize. He wouldn't even talk to tommy. Tommy's criticizing and tommy's criticisms were correct. What guests asking the deputy. Da do is illegal and a judge set so this week. So what do we have here. This is worse than you could have ever imagined do you see the el segundo times story on guests gone. This week was about. Oh the old guard still wants to imprison people. That's what they're calling. People still stuck on the stodgy. Oh days of incarceration. Yeah what the hell is happened. Well because they're crazy to it's not a news a newspaper that's a leftist propaganda sheet. Well all all this is all anarchist type stuff. This isn't much different than what the anarchists think they. They've always been there but what happened. You trace this back to the terrible events in minneapolis. Last may when george floyd was killed in your role at forward with the protest. They've turned this into well. We've taken a look at who's in prison. And it's too many black. And latino people so what we do well. We find a way to make sure they don't go to prison and i'm like if they still did the murder they still awful cries. This is now we have a couple of legislators and this is catching on there from the bay area. Of course this. Nancy skinner. I think he's from berkeley. She should state senator dave cohen together. They're proposing a whole bunch of bills to pretty much. What gascoyne is doing here in l. a. county to wipe out enhancements to release even murderers in a shorter amount of time. That shows you a gas going has been doing is illegal because legislators want to write a law to match gascons intentions. That's what they're doing right. You know something though. I'm telling you. And i don't think people want to grasp this but there is a financed movement to undermine the basic structure of the united states the financial structure the political structure the judicial structure. It's your is way wrong but yeah and and that it it were to rich retool. Powerful were to immoral and the thing is now because racism. Systemic racism is so trendy. They think they'll slap that label on everything to justify what they wanna do and that their bulletproof nobody can criticize them well. I'm so what i'm trying to do is to call that systemic racism. Not now well. I guess you must be a white supremacist. But it it. It's deeper than there. There's shouting racism every five minutes. They actually want to destroy all the institutions and the structure of the united states guests. Scone is jest on antifa guy in a suit. He's working on the inside and teeth is working from the outside is just one of those things. They antique guys want no prisons. No police burn down. The courthouse burned down the police station. Gaskins working on the inside. They're getting funded by the same people. The same people that funded. All those black lives matter protests black lives matter protests that suddenly disappeared are the same people who funded guests gone. Or the crackpot. Da in san francisco There's another crackpot in philadelphia. They're all getting their money from the same organization. It's this is not spontaneous. this is not accidental. Same thing with the antifa crowd they're getting financed to. It's a multi pronged attack and it seems as if it's separate and it seems as if it's just about race no it's much much more than that. It's about undermining the existence of america. They the other story related to this is some kooky panel took a look at california criminal justice and decided that california should allow all but death row inmates in those spending life behind bars without the chance of parole to request a lighter sentence after they serve at least fifteen years. So all right. So let's say we have somebody. That was a serial rapist. Somebody that did physical damage to someone else. But maybe he didn't kill them and it's like well you know fifteen years should be enough and the sentencing enhancements. That was that was coming down too hard. We have to do something about this. And of course they. Cite extreme racial disparities ninety nine percent of those who have been given a gang enhancement in la county re people of color. Well i'm sorry to say but that's most of the gangs in la county the black gang. I looked this up today because of this story. It's really interesting. 'cause i remember the longtime ago. I saw usa today Graphic where in la county ninety nine percent of gang members were black or hispanic one percent were white and i thought man that graphic in many years site went looking to see if i could find something and what's interesting is and i don't know if this is google blocking the search but it looks like everybody stopped counting race in. La county. ran two thousand five. I saw one chart that went up to about two thousand and ten but at some point no longer were. They releasing racial statistics regarding gangs. Now in two thousand and five they had thirty thousand gang myth. Thirty thousand gang members counted at thirty eight thousand. Six hundred were listed as white six hundred thirty eight thousand which shows you was less than two percent of the gang. Members were white. Now odds are. It's the same proportion today but they don't publicly count them anymore and what they do is they say. Wow look at that ninety. Nine percent of the people of gang housemates are people are men of color. Well yeah because half of that. Who are the victims of these gang members often people of color to that's right. They're forgotten because we're racist and it's not fair that they end up in gangs and they have to do these things to survive so we should lessen the punishment yet the victims or often black and latino people the we should do that story when we come back that you found the dow. Yes in the forgotten. Black lives of twenty twenty. These black lives didn't seem to matter in twenty twenty eight thousand. Six hundred black lives lost to homicide which is thousand more than the year before. We'll get into the coming up on the john and ken show. Kfi johnny chuck kobylt. Ken chiampou kfi am six. Live everywhere on the iheartradio app. All right we'll be talking to st gregory after five o'clock about the snafu dodger stadium yesterday with the vaccines also apparently. La county is expanding to another level. Who's eligible for vaccines. But it wouldn't be by age grouping you'll find out what that is. Oh oh now. They went off that. No we're going do age grouping and no no no it's sixty five and older is still up there. But they're not dropping down to another age. They're going put some job categories. They said they were. They said they were going to. I remember reading that. In the el segundo that that the next step was going to be the next level. Below gavin newsom gets heckled. We'll talk about all this now. We were just talking about criminal justice and this effort in the county with the district attorney george gascon and now a bunch of legislators in a panel who want to rip apart all long prison sentences by getting things gone like ants in the new york post a writer by the name of aurora wrote an unbelievably good. What i call it piece on he just puts it into words so well because when we have all this coverage about white police officer killing unarmed black man or arm. Black suspected criminal. There's so much attention paid to that. But he writes if we truly believe that black lives matter. We cannot and must not focus only on a small percentage of those lives taken less than half of a percent during conflicts with the police. We certainly should not be adopting policies. That could leave even more deaths in the black community. Last year so the largest year to year increase in homicides ever recorded in. Us history the homicide rate. In thirty four cities was thirty percent. Higher at twenty twenty compared to the previous year and victims of these homicides are disproportionately african american at least eighty six hundred. Black lives were lost. A homicide in twenty twenty and increase of more than a thousand compared to twenty nine thousand nine hundred in chicago. Eighty percent of gun violence victims in twenty twenty or black in new york city. Seventy one percent even though black people in new york only twenty six percent of the city's population meanwhile politicians in the mainstream media sensationalize and magnify andy questionable case involving a black suspect in a white police officer. But here's the kicker since more than ninety percent of black homicide victims are killed by black offenders. He says you can't start carrying out about white supremacy ninety percent of black murder. Victims killed by other blacks. Black lives only seem to matter when races overall. That's a good now. The thing is all these politicians. These police leaders Everybody in hollywood everybody in the corporate world. Everybody you know that's pushing this black lives matter. Narrative used it now in all the commercials you see it in all in films and television shows in the new super bowl the super bowl major league baseball nba everything and yet. None of them mentioned that ninety percent of the black victims are shot by black criminals. And it's eighty six hundred eighty six hundred in the united states low income marginalized black communities. He writes often in these democratic cities. And i everybody knows. This is what i'm saying. Is that this whole movement. It's it's not it's not. It can't possibly be about racism because racism is not killing waxman. Ninety percent of the time it's other black men killing black men and women sometimes kids now. Everybody knows the truth about it. It is never discussed so you have to stop and wonder okay. What's this really about here. What are these district attorneys. Were undermining our justice system. About what are these black lives matter protests about. What is all this. Rhetoric goes on with politicians in the media about because they all know the truth. And what would happen if the what would happen if they spoke the truth. It's quite mysterious isn't it. That's why i do think. A lot of these protests. A lot of these candidates are about undermining the system destroying system. That's that's the agenda of the people financing this year. They know that racism is is emotionally incendiary in this country. It's the achilles heel of american history. And so they can exploit it and get people revved up and obsessed with it while ignoring. What's really going on. I mean i mean. Eighty six hundred black lives lost. Is somebody like casco's suggesting that the eighty six hundred murderers should not go to prison because ninety percent of them are black and what we really talking about here. he saying. Murderers shouldn't go to prison based on their color because to take the long way through this. They believe that. America's history of racism and oppression has put these people in a bad life on a bad track and they kill each other. Well we reverse america's taraba oppressive. Racism people will not escape from this lifestyle. Well that's their that's their lodge right and you could debate that for a thousand years in meantime you're gonna lose another eight thousand people on the streets. Actually the only way you stop people from killing is by putting them in prison. It's the only way you stop only believe magically if you stop worrying them in prison they're going to change their lives magically changing societies like. Well it's a. It's a bit of a project. Don't you think i coming up next. We'll be talking to steve gregory. But i and that'll be about vaccines. I will give you the recap we got a new number for the signatures collected in the recall against gavin newsom and of course we have access nation numbers and we have hecklers gavin. Newsom showed up in fresno today on his anti recall tour. He got heckled. More coming up. John and ken show debra mark has news. Kfi am six forty.

"Free healthcare hundreds to more than a thousand dollars per month and disability compensation and tens of thousands for college tuition. These are just some of the. Us department of veterans affairs benefits. That may be available to veterans. Va is focused on. Customer service. Like never before choose. Va and see why veterans trust in va reached an all time high claim the benefits. You've earned at choose dot. Va dot gov last thursday. The third a gentleman pay for the car behind him though. The lady called up and i just watch the gentleman in front of you paid for your order if you can pay it forward and you can pay for the order behind you and we can keep those gordon. Why would he. We just have ever once roller somebody'll take care of the person behind today. Today's your lucky day and it ended up being nine hundred cars at a dairy queen. Nine hundred cars. They kept it going really. Yeah i'm sorry if i get that. I'm buying a house. If i get word that that's what's happening. I'm buy a nice three bedroom. Three bash ranch house so are you the. Are somebody listening right now on the text line. Are you the person that's that ends. These are you. Have you ever ended one. Like i'm not. I'm not participating in this nonsense. Thank you for buying me that. But i'm not buying one for the person behind me. I'm just taking my free drinkin- leaving a jerk for asking what the person behind me bought. I the surface van see arms sticking out of the window. There's a lot of kids their soccer team at some point. Isn't it just bill roulette. I mean i have saved the person behind me any money. Because they're going to have to pay for the person behind them so what is happened. We've all just gotten in a giant circle and handed our bills one to the right sure and it might be less might be more might be the what the hell and are we. It's not. I mean if it gives people a feeling of hey helping out my neighbor being a kind person. I'm not against it but it makes no rational sense. I was about to say. Let's flip this on. Its head for nicer people out there who don't question this sort of thing. Is there something wrong with us for getting into the cynicism of it and not just smiling big like they do on the tv news. Whenever they mentioned the stores. I i'ma rational man. I tried to live my life rationally. That's a long one though. Nine hundred cars at a dairy queen that had to take all day long and nobody did a favor for anybody. Am i wrong. We'll because each person that kept it going is a good person. Just any other hands just to urge to be selfish ended there. Yeah exactly what. Lee sean resisted the urge to be selfish serie kindness which is not kindness at all. It's fear it's peer pressure. This whole serie any more than his compulsory. That i hold the door open for the woman behind me fleece. I don't get a ticket if i don't do it but altruism enforced by an angry mob. That's what i see. actually. I think about dairy queen. Unless you're in a very busy area with a very busy dirt dairy queen. That must've taken a week to get nine hundred customers up to look into the details on it. I got into the deke. Blizzard habit when our kids were little. We'd stop by and i'd say one for myself that's a good treat right there. Oh yeah two weeks later. I weighed five pounds. More lattes over well. Luckily i don't have to worry about that. Because the dairy queen that had been in my town for decades and was run by immigrant. Family was shut down by wheelchair. Nazis oh good and put them out of business great so now the wheeled handicap people can go and enjoy an ice cream. Treat their right. No no shot down business that have been there. Forever disappeared forever right and all their employees helen employed news of the day. You unemployment claims rose to eight hundred and fifty thousand last week yet. It's a pretty significant increase. Rose by one hundred thirty seven thousand. That's not good news in. It's not surprising that with like we were just talking about where we live. We're going to strict shutdown orders. It's you're not supposed to leave your house unless you go to work or the grocery store or the hospital. Something health related. You're not supposed to leave your house. Just a question. Can eric swallow leave his house to meet up with his hot chinese spy lover. And yes we're looking at you eric. Swallow while you lie in creep more on him coming up good lying creep good morning going up but anyway it's not surprising that businesses that were hanging on thinking man i th. I think we can make it. And then all of a sudden kobe gets worse and states are saying he got shut back down our thinking. Okay came out. i can't do it. This is the the ain't going to happen. Well not only that but you know some fairly reasonable authorities are saying the next three months are going to be brutal. Even as we roll out the vaccine. So they're thinking. I i don't have a week's worth a cash on hand much less three months out on the other hand before we go too far down the road of interpreting these numbers. These are what is known as a by people who studied this. I guess noisy numbers in that you have to Take a look at the background. A lot of these numbers. All your copay. Statistics are noisy numbers. I had never heard the term before. but they're noisy. Because when i hear how. Many people tested positive abbott testing increased. So you got factor that in if he didn't factored in it's a noisy number it's not it's not quite right Did people die of or with cova. Do you gotta tease all that out before. I know what's going on the government and the media never ever does of course but the wall street journal today the gao. The government accountability office last month said jobless claims have contained inconsistent data because of the pandemic related surgeon applications and attempted fraud. There's been so much fraud across the country you don't know how many of those are real are aren't well right as i mentioned on the armstrong and getty show two billion dollars worth of fraudulent unemployment claims in california alone two billion with a b. How many thousand people wasn't they think. How many claims thousands of dollars eight hundred thirty thousand. Something like huge number. Yeah and the labor department said it doesn't plan to change its methodology. So these are noisy. Numbers economists also cautioned. The claims figures can be volatile from week to week especially around holiday periods. So so you gotta look at it. I i heard said by a one person looking at indian any individual weeks numbers is silly for making any determination so there we are boy. It's never been more true that if you If you don't read the newspapers mark twain put it or watch cable news or read your favorite website your uninformed and if you do your misinformed or at least a substantial amount of the time boy. There's so much i want to talk about. I was gonna get into a more of the world restaurants in jobs and unemployment the arbitrariness and we will after the break but just a quick note. It's funny how these things came together. Los angeles just elected a radical leftist by the name of george gascon to be the district attorney. He ruined san francisco. And now there's there's. The current guy in san francisco was a crony of hugo chavez in venezuela seriously so now this guy is moved to la and gotten elected and he's going to ruin la which we're warning you the other day. San francisco chronicle which is a far left. Publication itself had a story that came across. Some guy took a video. Name's jesse haunting stepped out of his place in the cow. Hollow neighborhood if you know. San francisco stepped out of his place wednesday and walked down the street. Taking a video of the all-too-familiar sites piles of broken glass sitting in the gutters on the sidewalks beneath a row of parked cars. All with all of them with their windows smashed smashed car does have become so common in san francisco. That many people don't even blink as they step over the crushed glass and those victimized by break ins frequently lamentably of response from police and prosecutors. They mentioned that because the cove is devastated. Tourism the san francisco now all the the thieves the gangs. The utterly unafraid of being caught criminals now are turning to local residents just smash and grab if they catch a guy for doing twenty cars. He'll be out on the street tomorrow. Well tomorrow he'll be out on the street in an hour and a half and he will probably never be prosecuted and that is now coming to la which is already struggling with bums and junkies and lawlessness. So it's it's a hell of a deal my friends everywhere but calcutta cornea and portland in seattle. I'm begging you hear the warning. We tried this stuff. It's a disaster so more on the restaurants and unemployment stuff to come up. What was your mentioning of a particular congressman chinese spy in the whole sex thing. What's going on with that story today. We'll jack it turns out that one time presidential candidate and prominent congressman from california. Eric swallow was once a enamored with rolling around with perhaps a hot young chinese spy. Now we don't have any evidence that that he was sleeping with the spy. Correct third tucker. Carlson spoke to intelligence officials. Who said yes swale. Well was one of those who is having a sexual relationship with this. Fong-fong were cynthia. Funky cynthia thing. So they're saying he did. Reporters asked swale well so We're you rolling around with the hot chinese gal. And he said national security question cana lying lying the last night the fbi and my wife told me. I shouldn't answer that question so never mind lying creep. So i'll tell you why the only reason i'm interested in this story the a congressperson cheating on their wife. Whatever i mean unless you just really liked tawdry gossip and i'm into it if we can make jokes but it doesn't really affect the nation any that's between him and his wife and then unless he's blackmail level him being on the committee or not him outside of the damage he could do whether or not you know. I don't have it in for swallow. I don't. I don't need him to lose his committee posts or something like that. The reason i care about this story is. I want us to treat china the way we treated the soviet union. I want us to have the same level of concern and like you said earlier back in the day during the cold war. If you're on the intelligence committee where you have access to all the most important information there is if it turned out you might have had an affair with a known soviet spy. No freaking way. Either party would have put up with for a minute. You being having access to intelligence right. It's not like he's on the agriculture committee's on the intelligence committee because the stakes were too high. We were life and death battle. Plenty of congressman four hundred and thirty five according to some counts. Getting all the and it's going to be another democrat fine. There's plenty of people pick somebody who's not possibly compromised by our number one global enemy china. That's right sir. it's it's an important story. Yeah so more on swale. Well plus the restaurant. Crackdown in some voices of common sense which are rising up against the arbitrary the regulations. You're gonna enjoy hearing them. Average americans getting a voice. Imagine that go all the text line. Four one five two nine five k. ftc the armstrong and getty show then russia. They're telling people not to drink alcohol for almost two months. After taking the russian vaccine russians heard. We're like the. We'll take our chances with the virus because russia doesn't even give that warning pregnant women who foof that true did. I just hear that. Canada might start giving people the vaccine before the united states. So we get beat by great britain china and russia and canada come on now wow shocking shocking. So Also apparently the fbi actually has audio of cure mayor having sex with that chinese spy. So i don't wanna hear it but so how. How much does that hurt. You thought you had some pretty good game. He thought i've been working out. This new suit fits me pretty good. It's not surprising that this twenty five year old chinese audiences into me charming. She's not shallow but then looking at the man within so she's a spy she's only doing to try to get secrets. And they they've been taping your sex man that'd be tough to bounce back from different ways more next hour. Oh we also have a report coming up to describe the facebook antitrust trial so we can understand what's actually happening you know. Perhaps with the likely outcome is a number of different notes on the same topic. Here we got a great rant from joe in san francisco he's commenting on the l. A. woman who had her restaurant closed in the movie company. It was serving meals right next. Reclosed restaurant. And she and joe points out. She and a whole lot of other people are also under the control of public officials whose paychecks never stop their families are secured. Their futures are unaffected by their decisions. They functioned different strata of society. That this is so cannot be any Clearly illustrate than the mayor san francisco. The governor california living in up at one of the most expensive restaurants not just in california but in the entire country then mentions nancy pelosi going to nice intimate party in which the wind bill alone was twelve thousand dollars. God me we. We have another gaffey award nominee. We haven't even gotten a chance to get to it. But twelve thousand dollar wind bill right public servants. Oh yeah yeah well please. They're super rich. That's funny they went to dc not crazy rich. They've spent all their time government now. They're crazy rich. That's funny and then this opinion piece from the las vegas review journal. It's a. It's a nevada restaurant tour talking about how According national restaurant association they think nearly one in six restaurants in the. Us is closed either permanently or long term as a result of the ordered shutdowns affecting approximately three million workers and he talks about seeing firsthand. Though the worry the angst the tears the employees just hopeless and he talked about He talks about a conversation. He had with one owner of restaurant expressing great concern over the new restrictions at twenty five percent capacity. Told me could barely pay bills. But he became even more animated over the requirement for reservation only customers the current requirements. This is in nevada. State that resurrect reservations are required for restaurants bars pubs and wine reason. Burris serve food. So does this mean it's legal for restaurants have more patrons at a given time than another restaurant say one next door just because one can show reservation log and the other can't wire reservations required. Well he reached this right or reached out to the nevada restaurant association and they clarified that. The reservation only mandate is the one size fits all approach to deter the gathering of people in waiting areas. And this is what makes me so insane about the paternalism particularly left wing politics. I have a friend. Who's a restaurant tour. Judy and i met a couple of dinner there. I guess it was a couple months ago but they because of the warnings decided okay. We're not gonna have people congregate waiting to get in rush. You're not gonna have ten people standing in that tiny little room waiting to get into the restaurant so they withdrawal running outta their mouths not running out of there. No said governor governor. What should we do know they said. Okay we'll put a booth outside. We'll have folks wait over there until we wave them over will take the reservation. We'll send them in one at a time. Easy easy easy when your friends not exactly rocket science to figure that out no no of course he'd tell you the same thing but no instead you've got to have these heavy handed government mandate saying let's see we can't have people congregating so only reservations are permitted. Got and what's so frustrating about this. You've got app person. Maybe a couple of people with no skin in the game sitting at the table thinking what do we do. You know how people wait. You know when you go to a restaurant and sometimes you're all crowded in there waiting all that'd be dangerous we should. We should find a way around that. They're just they're just making this up as they go along. Who just just winging in by the seat of their pants buying up these rules based on nothing zero skin in the game. Well not only that. But you look like you know. I've said many times eric. Garcetti the mayor of angeles. Who's an academic and government guy. His no idea what making a payroll is. He's he's not a work in man he's he doesn't he just. He has no idea what he's talking about. But there's a substantial part of the american electorate that wants these technocrats to run a utopia. Oh my god please. It's about liberty friends in the free market. Liberty very frustrating armstrong and getty. You're the kind of person who makes luxury fun. So your luxury.

Viewed instagram's as a competitor is a kind of large multipurpose social platforms. In fact people at the time kind of mocked our acquisition because they thought that we Dramatically spent more money than we should have billions with thrown at smaller companies and effort to get them to sell the two. Most glaring examples of this awful scheme were instant and what's up. They also send a clear message to the industry. Don't step on facebook's turf or one industry executive put it you will face the wrath of mark the wrath of mark the wrath of mark. Not the most frightening looking character. I've ever seen in my life. He loomed out of the darkness of. I'm gonna sleep at work. What are you doing here going. Well the headline is the. Us government and forty eight attorneys general filed landmark antitrust lawsuits against facebook on wednesday. They're trying to break up the social networking giant overcharges engage in illegal anticompetitive tactics to buy bullion kill its rivals which sounds very dramatic but the law is often a little more drive than that and to help us understand what's going on we've invited elizabeth dwoskin the silicon valley correspondent in the washington. Post on elizabeth. How are you. i'm pretty good. How are you tired reporting on this. Don't you aren't you wary of the wrath of mark reporters. We've definitely felt the rest of mark ya. You didn't jump out of a scary closet. I'll bet you you have felt so. Some of the reporting on this particularly in broadcast media is is awfully dramatic in the by bully. You're berry and one of the charges. The new york attorney general throughout there was that they would just throw money at rivals and buy them out to which i reply. Send me the paperwork. Yeah but what. What are they being accused of that. That seems to you. The closest to real monopolistic violations so interesting and complicated about this case. It's there's a lot of things about the case that are unprecedented. As far as what. The fcc is trying to claim so and and what what actual harm facebook has caused because the other piece of it is even if they are a monopoly and by the way a monopoly doesn't mean just the only player in one market it could be google. Even this case isn't about google and facebook dominating at you could say those to have a monopoly because they have such enormous sheriff. The market i think courts have defined monopoly as one company having at least fifty percent of the market and somewhere around seventy five percent. And if you look at your just a number of americans that are on facebook you know it's about seventy percent and then you had instagram. They own another thirty seven percent. So i think you can get to the to the idea of market share. Even though they'll say look we have competitors. We have tiktok has been a huge competitor. Som- reports say tiktok with more downloaded and facebook this year so you know and and other competitors as well now it's but you know they don't need to have no competition they can have some competition still be in the nop late. The next question is what's wrong with like throwing money at things and buying things right. Well that that's where that's where the most interesting questions to me in the lawsuit come because of people in silicon valley just said look. That's business as usual. Your powerful company and these companies were willing to be sold but what you see is some of the questionable business practices almost like the strong arm tactics that really cross the line like saying companies. Look you know you use our data. Because of the companies that facebook was competing with even if they were tiny start ups or you know maybe seeing that they were interesting potential competitors those were companies that were using facebook's data that's how facebook could see how well they were doing because even remember think of dating apps you know logging with your facebook profile and then you get access to all of these people. It's they were services that were built on top of facebook. Millions and millions of services are built on top facebook so they can see what people are doing and they see a competitor and then they might say and they have said. It's not hypothetical the documents show. They came to lots of different companies. And said you know versions of will shut you down. If you don't sell to us you know we We have the power to do that because we take away our data you live and die by our data so there are questions about our. Aren't those anticompetitive tactics. And they were in and they were in effect doing what you just described they did. I mean they're losses gotta be out of bounds. Well it's certainly that would be one of the more clear-cut definitions of an anti competitive business practice But yeah i mean i even rotatory today about. They did it you know. Ten years ago they were doing it To the to the guy who created a predecessor for the like button we all know the facebook like button and there were called. I like i like in two thousand and nine. They came to the guy who founded. I like and said you know. If you don't sell to us we're gonna shut you down. I like was all based on facebook data and buy music tickets and they changed policies. The company was suddenly worth nothing and shortly after facebook. Credits unlike button. Wow elizabeth dwoskin is online. She's the silicon valley correspondent for the washington. Post it's already clear to me that the testimony and evidence and ruling on this are going to be enormously long and complicated. Can you speak to the fact that it is forty eight state attorneys general democrats and republicans. Who are joining in on this suit and the enthusiasm on both sides. What what does that say to you. Well it says to me that you know in a in a year when very little politically can get done and when the country is more polarized than ever there are just very few points of agreement among the both parties and particularly because even though the democrats and the republicans have different reasons for being upset with the social media companies. Very different reasons. I was really shocked by this suit. Because it's it they. They managed to come together on On the point of this agreement. Even though all i thought they had between them was the point of you know they. They disliked the social media companies that i thought that there were so points of disagreement after that that they wouldn't get to a consensus and so what's fascinating to see is that behind the scenes Both democrats and republicans think it's politically advantageous enough to bring a suit like this even at the end of the trump administration when we're going to have a transition you know biden has called out facebook several times as well and so i don't think you know biden even if he wasn't being serious even if that was political posturing you know he's not gonna be able to walk that back either interesting elizabeth roskin of the washington. Post one final note. I see in your bio that you in addition to speaking english quite skillfully. You also speak spanish portuguese and hebrew. That is amazing to me is if somebody arms took off line. Have you always had that gift. I you know. I think you gotta if you start learning the language when you're little it yeah they say it's easier to learn the language so i don't know how long i was like language. I took the same language. Classes my brother's a little kid. My brother hated it. Didn't remember doesn't remember a word. And i remembered like everything. I think. There's some where you have to really like it. That's amazing amazing. Elizabeth dwoskin of the washington. Post hey great to talk to you. Thanks so much for the information. That was spanish or hebrew obligated. Thanks good to talk to you. Bye-bye thinking about asking wanna make it any longer as the washington post silicon valley correspondent for the last four years. What's what's what's the what's what's the common story what's going on. What's the general thing. Talk sometime about that because there's probably some burgling something it might be this actually well. She's terrific i mean. Yeah let's have her back on again and talk about this stuff because there is no force more significant in our futures. I think is a as a as a people than the government and in silicon valley honestly. Yeah i mean oil companies please. There's a punchline to a joke compared to silicon valley these days. We might get tim the lawyer on tim sanfer about this whole thing. Because he's got a lot of thoughts about the history of monopolies and breaking these sorts of things up and when it's the free market doing it saying and when it's not because a company just getting bayden successful shouldn't be a crime. I can't help it. We're just that much better than everybody else. And then yeah. There's a company over there. I thought they were pretty. We bought them. They willingly took our the the amount of money we gave them right now. If you've got all their data for instance in this case and you can shut them down if they don't go along and strong arm and everything so that's a different situation that the lawyers will figure out right. And as tim can tell you. The history of the antitrust laws have changed. And there's a different point of view on left than there is on the right for what constitutes a monopoly. I didn't know that they started taking a look at you as soon as you have more than fifty percent of the market. I almost ask her about her boss. You work for the washington post The guy at the top of your place runs amazon. You might have heard of him. They at various times have had more than fifty percent quite a bit. More than fifty percent of the entire online shopping market is that right. I i couldn't tell you that. I don't doubt it but okay all right. Well we'll stay in touch. I like the cut of her jib. Good stuff then. We'll have to watch this unfold. It's going to be unspeakably complicated and technical insisted on that one with amazon. Unless you know unless when you get into the various things where they suppress certain products or all that. That's a different topic. But just the fact that amazon has would have more than fifty percent on the online shopping will target and walmart have gotten better. They have grown backup. They've they've started to take away some of that. So then. that's that's just. I mean that's just plain. That's the way it's supposed to work. I heard some human ask earlier today. And i can't remember if it was a congress person or a lawyer might have even been a journalist which is surprising because they rarely ask anything worth asking said. Well isn't it well. facebook thanks right. That's right she listen. Among the young people in my life they laugh at facebook. there aren't on tiktok. They might be on the graham whatever and she mentioned a couple others. facebook is in the past. Might this entire question being relevant in a few years and the answer from the wire was actually pretty good. They said yeah. That's exactly what we're trying to decide right here. Has facebook amassed so much power so many levers so much money that they can effectively. Stop anybody competing with them. They couldn't become my space right right. Exactly which you know on the one side. On the one hand is just shows the brilliance of zuckerberg. He may be evil but he's brilliant. There's no questioning that. But whether we the people need to stand up to that. I guess they're going to figure that out in a court. It's interesting to me how the sheen can come off of a company so fast and this for free swigging. What's in the charlie sheen. Facebook was winning their troll overlords and for them they they got sucked into the whole two thousand sixteen election in russia ads and all that sort of stuff but facebook went from being just a happy smiley. You thought of it and it was a smile on your face. I mean every it was good news for everybody. Grandma's connect with your friends right. Everybody was happy about it. And now it's just got kind of a field as soon as i hear the word sliding darth vader. And you get their raft mark dantonio. They ought to play. That every time zuckerberg comes in and you get sued by forty eight states. Republicans and democrats. That's how things can change. I was just thinking. Do we get more listeners. Talking about antitrust law or sex. Because i have great sex stuff with eric's chinese spy in mid western mayors and all kinds of stuff. And yes. we're looking at you eric. Swale well you lying creep that next armstrong getty Story straight out of a spy novel. Alleging steaming since skulduggery stretching from china to capitol hill steaming skulduggery. That's from good morning. America so from your original air name early on north korea. Steaming nece in skulduggery in the morning. Yeah it is straight out of a spy novel. Frigging china's spent over over a hot young chinese woman skulduggery underhanded or unscrupulous behaviour analysis. Yes so this woman fang fang. She was about thirty but looked about twenty and so she was able to pull off when she got to california. You know being on a college campus and get involved in various groups and interning with various up and coming politicians and acting like a young college student. Even though she was almost thirty she looked about twenty. I'm plucky and naive and enthusiastic. And very very sexy. How can that appealed any man on the china's sex scandals a reminder don't govern while horny reading from the intelligencer just some good information. That's pretty good writing right her. And so she targeted a bunch of what they were hoping. We're up and coming politician so you could You know get in good with them early and the only one that has turned out to be something really a big deal. Is this eric swallow character who actually ran for president as a democrat. And you know it was one of the lead voices in the impeachment. And he's on the intelligence committee in all that he is in your top tier powerful congress people she also Probably the most high profile name is she she was involved in the tulsi. Gabbard campaign now. Obviously there's no indication that there is any sex going on there. Although i would watch that video oh good lord sir. I kid i kid. That's that's designed to shock. It's keeping in mind that her primary duty was not to pleasure. No no no no no but to gather data and she absolutely gather data could on tulsi gabbard and other people. But there are two unnamed midwestern. Mayors that she did sex up that is known now swallow. Well has had the opportunity with a couple of different journalists to deny having had a sexual relationship with the spy. And he's taken a pass. I've been at this for a long time. That's always meant one thing always mean because if you didn't do anything you just stated out loud and even then sometimes it turns out you did but the fact that you won't say no i did no physical relationship with her means you did. How was he married at the time. No he got married in two thousand sixteen now zoom. She left in two thousand fifteen left. His office is that right yes. She disappeared from the koshi country. In twenty fifteen. Yeah yeah She began her acquaintance with swallow in two thousand twelve. He might not even have met his wife by any might have been completely single. So the on the other hand you can't sex up. Chinese spies and then become a congressman on the intelligence committee. You wouldn't think anyway. Onto the mayor's that been named fang allegedly had sexual relationship the two mayors in mid western cities in two thousand fourteen one older midwestern mayor. Now i heard him described his eighty seven. Why mark stein on Tucker last night is he. Eighty-seven i haven't nailed down that that's eighty seven getting with this young chinese girl. He's kinda my hero ideal. He introduced her as she looked twenty. Remember so even though she's thirty which is a lot younger than eighty seven anyway twenty. She looked twenty. He'd introduced her as his girlfriend performer. Cupertino mayor gilbert wong had introduced her and insisted the relationship was genuine. Despite the clear age. Difference now. I don't know if that was part of the introduction or like do you have friends at say. Wait a second. She's a little young for you isn't jammed. Your friends say that or did you just like throw that in there. Based on their white is the idea that anybody could so delude themselves scares me that i might have that capacity. You're eighty seven and twenty year olds in there. There can't be anything fisher here. She got after my social security number are gonna kill me or a chinese spy or anything. She just she's likes older men. That poor dumb by the fbi surveilled them and caught her. Having sex. it says here intercourse with an ohio mayor in a car. Apparently when the mayor actually ask her why she was into him. She told him it was because she wanted to improve her english checks out. We're talking all the time. I'll bet doesn't make any sense. You know there are younger more attractive men that also speak english. Understand what we have jack or you could just watch the tv. But you're in this car with me in a car again. The age of the participants involved. You should not be Foreign in a car. That's a good point. It's not high school. You're a man of means mayor. Do it in city hall when the fbi began investigating fangs. She bounced out of the country. In the fbi's probe in fan got into gear in june. Two thousand fifteen. She left the country abruptly. Learn enough english. Gotta go by. I'm helping you learn english with your pants off. Wow the politico's she was tight with. Were confused about her sudden departure. She disappeared off the face of everything. One of the politicians told axios when she left kind of abruptly. We all kind of scratched our heads. And it's always tough the first time you get ghosted yeah goodbye funk song goodbye so swallow got in two thousand sixteen they say hopefully he's less vulnerable to high trapping Then maybe you know he would benefit or married. But i don't know like you said she was a chinese. She is a chinese spy. Fong-fong you haven't called in weeks what's up. I left the country. Why i'm a chinese spy. Come on quit kidding around. I miss you know. I'm a chinese. I work for the communists i was. I was due using you. Please if you're an everton relationship where you have to ask the other person.

John & Ken Show Hour 2 (03/02)

"John and ken show john kobylt ken. Chiampou kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Where charging right along if you go to our webpage. Kfi am six. Forty dot com. The john and ken page it says on air to six pm. Not one but two recalls. That's right the recall gavin newsom petitioned link. It's a link. You can't get the petition from us. You go to their website which is recalled gavin. Twenty twenty dot com. But we have a link to get you there. And the new one recalled george geico dot com which they will have underway. I think beginning sunday only have to do is submit signature to have to wait until he's in office. Ninety days we brought to the story yesterday that the movement began over the weekend. But you can go to recall. George gascon dot com to find out more and get yourself ready just remember. Misses the county. You have to be a registered voter in la county to participate in the recall but he can certainly donate find out information. Help at any way you can at recall. George gas golden dot com so this morning near the mexican border an suv. That might have been carrying up to twenty seven. People crashed into a semi loaded with gravel and fifteen people killed. Yup this is in imperial county not that far from the us. Mexico border and the stories changed a bit in terms of the number of people in the suv. The number of casualties and telling us well. We'll see if we can find out from alex stone about the particulars of how this happened. Let's bring alex stone. Abc news from kfi on in. Hey guys yeah. The have been fluid all day. Originally the hospital el centro a medical center. They were saying twenty-seven then they said twenty eight. Were in the suv. But the number is now down to twenty five. The chp Saying that it was a calculating everybody going to different hospitals and some being double counted but still twenty five people. Inside of a ford expedition is pretty unimaginable of how they got everybody in there and the c. h. visas. Even they don't get it that they're trying to figure out they can see and the the wreckage that there are some seats in there but had some been removed. Otherwise how do you get twenty five people in there. But it was round the six o'clock this morning six fifteen that This is all down in the holtville area. Which is outside of el centro in imperial county and there was a big rig. A gravel hauling. Big rig going down the highway one fifteen. Stay right one. Fifteen and then. The suv maroon expedition. Pulled out or didn't stop at a stop sign at an intersection at speed. Probably fifty five miles an hour which is speed limit along the highway. One fifteen for a big rig or maybe even a little bit above that slammed into the side of that. Suv that the pulled out in front of them but now everybody wants to know and then we definitely want to know what we're twenty five people doing in that suv not only. How did they do that. But why did they do that. And this is an update. We got just a moment ago. From chief omar watson the chp. He says they're trying to figure that out as well. so the question is farm workers emigrants. We don't know that it's to true. Learn the investigation to see what they were doing where they're coming from. That's why we've assembled this team of personnel from all agencies to ascertain exactly where they're coming from an exactly what happened now. They brought in the border patrol. Vp is part of this and other agencies as well the mexican consulate They're working with to figure out who these people were. We know a lot of them. Didn't speak english and is it. Human smuggling is at form workers going out in the field at six o'clock in the morning. That would seem like that's plausible as well. So they're going down all of those roads and they just announced after saying. The two o'clock news conference was their final news conference. There would be nothing more. They just said they have some new developments. They're going to hold another news conference at three thirty and in fact Just a moment ago. I got a phone call from somebody at the chp to tell me what that's going to be so we don't know yet but they've got some announcement that they're going to make in twenty minutes. Would they really stuff twenty five people into an suv. Just to work in the field for the day. I seems unlikely. Yeah i mean people who are in that area say yes then that. If they're having kids. I understand their age of sixteen to fifty five age range Well yeah here. They break down. The drain just are sixteen to fifty five hundred injured and twenty to fifty five for past away Obviously that was not meant for that. Many people It's unfortunate that number people were were put into that vehicle because there's not enough safety strings to safely. Keep those people within the vehicle and we know the The suv driver from mexicali. Twenty two years old. that may change. That may be what they're about to announce because there's been a number of different ages that they've given on that suv driver and then the driver of the big rig who's got moderate injuries but is alive and doing all right sixty nine years old but they do point out just because driver was from mexicali. There are a lot of people go back and forth everyday for work and that's not uncommon is not illegal that there are in the the border region. There are a lot of folks who have mexican citizenship or mexican driver's license who come in every single day and then go back later in the day. So but i can't imagine that. They went across the border with twenty five people in that expedition. Likely they had to fill that up on the us side. I don't know what the border crossing near. There is like and whether or not that's a corridor yen collects mexicali alexa border-crossing. But you normally wouldn't get across with twenty five people and then that would raise some red flags that mostly men in the suv men and women. We don't have a complete count of of both. But they say men and women. I guess on the number of people were thrown from that thing in the impact. I've seen the photos that yeah the because nobody or very few were belted in and so a lot of people rejected. The driver of the suv was killed immediately and We're told that there were a lot of walking wounded. Who had gotten out of there and they were stumbling around and then others who were thrown quite a ways. When you think you're hit by something going fifty five miles an hour and it was broadside into that. Suv that people were just ejected. Right out of the side of it and they were all over the place. Oh would they call the team. Which is the major accident. Investigation team from the chp. Their work at it now. They've been down there all day and we just got word. The ntsb is going as well not a full. Go team a collared but an accident investigator in charge in a couple of other investigators. They're going to be working at so that scene is now frozen and it's going to be for a while with the ntsb coming in that still at this moment. The big rig is into that and it's just parked there and the mate team is beginning Spray paint and evaluate and measure things and try to put together their investigation. And then tomorrow it looks like the ntsb will be on scene. So you know the particulars of the site of the crash. Was there a stop sign for the suv. And not so for the big rig on the highway. How was that. They're exactly what we understand is that there was a stop sign that they don't know if the the suv stopped and then went and pulled out in front of the suv. The suv was going down the highway and didn't need to stop. And or if if they just barreled right through the stop sign and there were some beginning to speculate well with twenty five people in there in an older. Suv that they. They may not have been able to stop the brakes but the chp did bring up today. That an expedition can carry a boat or a trailer or anything else. So the weight of twenty five people shouldn't be that great for an expedition where you wouldn't be able to stop at a stop sign but they don't have the brakes are going to figure all that out. It does look like that. The big rig tried to stop in that it was empty. It didn't have any gravel in the gravel. Holler and jack knifed. When the driver tried to hit the brakes they're looking at skid marks and everything else but when he hit the brakes or when he stopped in hitting the vehicle then those trailers behind them came forward and ended up jack-knifing so looks like he saw the the car and slammed on the brakes. It was too late. He kept going here too much weight and went right into all right alex. We'll see if you find out anything else coming up with the next update from you. Gotta thanks guys. Very much alex stone. Abc news kfi on the horrific collision between a big carrying gravel and an suv. With what we now understand was twenty five people inside ages sixteen to fifty five not far from the mexican border in imperial county. This crash happened just after six. Am this morning with thirteen. People having lost their lives more coming up john and ken. Kfi john and ken show. John kobylt ken she pope. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Never sure if the bathroom here usually jump right in there takeoff. I didn't win you're slower. I thought slump. We're on the bowl. Elvis hey this is perfect. This tells you all you need to know about everything with the states and the pandemic we told you last hour. The texas governor. Greg abbott has lifted restrictions there in fact beginning next wednesday march tenth. Texans will not be required to wear masks in a bid to reopen texas one hundred percent. Abbott said he will rescind the state's previous executive orders and allow all businesses to reopen at maximum capacity. Now here comes. The update gavin newsom on twitter. Posted simply two words absolutely reckless. There you go right there by the way the second largest state by population third and deaths behind new york and california. We've talked about florida before. These two states have not been as nutty with the lockdown restrictions and have suffered no worse consequences and we have four it simply unhappy and by the way i'm also getting tired of the death count here. We've had a year for everybody to figure out how to avoid the virus and if you haven't figured out by the year after year this is this is darwinism. If you've got all those what do they call them. Quote co morbidity ness you've got diabetes. You're obese hypoglycemia rats right if you haven't figured out how to stay away from the virus this darwinism you're living unhealthy. You accumulated all these medical conditions because you lived on healthy and the whole world's gonna shut down forever because of you i it that well yeah basically. It's like well everybody else who didn't get one hundred pounds overweight and eat badly for for twenty or thirty years that we've got we've got to live our lives. I it's true you do and and as far as the elderly concerned the same thing. I mean if you haven't figured out a way to keep your members of your family out of the way you know flatten the curve. That's what we were told. We didn't want the hospitalizations to get out of control. Well we had a couple of scary times in the state particularly just a month or two ago. But we're out of that now and abbott added this. He said they expect seven. Million vaccine shots have been distributed in the state by next wednesday. He says that's also a factor in this decision to safely reopen. And he added. This which is really important is never emphasized enough. It's kind of what you're saying in your roundabout way. He said this does not end personal responsibility. There followed the safe standards. You need to contain covert. They want people to be adults so they want to trust people a bit were wearing last everybody and everything down and put businesses out of commission. I've never understood this. If you wearing a mask is a smart thing to do. Then we're the mask and if you don't wanna be around maskless people then don't go around them. What's what what's difficult about this. Keep your mask on and keep your distance from other people. You don't want to go into a restaurant that's at full capacity. Don't go in your freedom. People also have the freedom to earn a living. The owner is the freedom to run a business or waiters and waitresses and the cooks have the freedom to work and make money and the other diners have the freedom to enjoy dinner. You have the freedom to stay home and get grub deliveries. They get angry because they think well. You're just gonna keep the virus going. You're going to be sound. We got our is and even though there'll be less cases it's still around. It's not going to be around by. I don't think so if the transmission will be so so minimal. If biden's when i predict a year from now we'll still these scare stories two cases today of covid downtown los angeles. We must remain vigilant a year from now. I'm predicting that's what the off button for. That was the joke. I had about measles. And i'll never forget that you even freaked out found measles and cvs. I go to that.

Let's get rolling here and if you're not up for it Wait till it's gone. You jumping the gun. No no you don't have to. They can wait. That's the thing they can wait.

Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Well we're gonna see what we can do when we talk next hour to a couple people about The la county health department trying to shut down a long time described as iconic west. Hollywood restaurant you may have heard about the problems concerning the classic cat.

Stop listening to this nonsense. Go live your life have a good time. Life is not meant to Spend staring at a screen and getting scared from crazy people so if you want a little more about the attempted recall from office of la county district attorney. George gascon and that recall will begin in earnest and just about five days. I have to wait till he's office for three months or ninety days and that won't happen until this weekend took office on december seventh There's a good reminder in this archived story from deadline about who gave the most money to the campaigns of george gascon and his opponent jackie lacey. Well it's all the hollywood elites that's who gave money to gas going along with this bozo. George soros backed him. That's the people that have no idea what effect this is going to have on the public safety of people in los angeles county when you have a da. Who's on the side of the criminals nor is the victims and their families. Let me let me tell you you see this list. And it's an all star cast of Hollywood heavyweights all of them. I am sure live in mansions live on hilltops. Live in gated communities have tall fences security security personnel at at the front of their gate and none of them ever have to worry about one of the bad guys coming and shooting them because They live privileged lives and as Alex via waivers said yesterday. The la county sheriff Most of the victims are black and hispanic and they're being killed by black and hispanic criminals. Right and people send gas you own or these Often white hollywood elites wrench white liberal can change the course of social justice by freeing all the criminals rich white. You put it out. They'll be safe from. They're safe from all all. This progressive woke crap that the hollywood crowd is into. They don't have to deal with the consequences. They don't have to deal with the homeless. They don't have to deal with the immigration other than Those are the people they employ their homes They don't have to deal with the criminals being led out early and by the way. Now they're in favor of cop killers getting white sense. I think this is what you ought to know about these people. I don't have any celebrity reverence for people. Just because they star. Tv shows are they make movies. Dopey narrow worship is dopey. It is hero worship. And and they think they have special dispensation because they literally live above us all well they. They provided all the money for the for gascon to defeat. Jackie lacey well leading the way or close to it is. The boss of netflix is reed hastings. He gave five hundred thousand dollars to the gas golden campaign and it looks like his wife patti quinlan equivalent dropped one point seven five million into the gas gascoyne campaign. What's her story. I don't know but Money campaign directly and the pack. All these would have guessed all these silly entertainment reporters and the news reporters are just a silly. Wouldn't be great if reed hastings and his wife were cornered at some hollywood event and said why did you spend so much money on a guy who wants to let cop killers out early really i. How about. I mean let's take that It was joseph saldana. Deputy killed at the jack in the box. Yeah yeah and his sister on yesterday. Shot in the back of the head of the jack in the solano so on. Excuse me you His killer could get out in twenty years or less that a shot in the back of the head. I'm just ambushed right. Oh execution the guy. The cop was off duty. He's probably ordering a burger right. Ex- acute in the back the head and reed hastings. Now i realize is the ceo of netflix's so that makes him his life vastly more important. They have really been detective. Joseph solano right i mean. He was just a sheriff's deputy. he was. Just a sheriff's deputy but reed hastings. Iran's netflix that flexes the coolest thing so he from mount netflix's can say i stole thousands of dollars on the george gascoyne campaign so this cop killer can get out early. Oh thank you mr hastings. Thank you king as things excellent wonderful. The rest of the crowd here awarded brothers Tv boston channing. Dungy and affects executive vice president. Georgina ballymun another documentary maker in entertainment one. Tv chief this is all the tv. Hollywood people just like the cliches. They're given the money to back the man they wanted to be. La county da. So he can be on. The side of the criminals is their version of criminal justice reform on the other side jackie. They've got all their money from big california correctional peace officers association by the l. a. police protective league. Something called the neighborhood safety coalition. That's who gave her. The the cops were endangered. Every day gave gave money to jackie lacey. So that the cop killers at least could be put in prison for life. If put to death but reed hastings and the rest of these tv moguls they want the cop killers to run free. Steven spielberg gave buddy. George gone steven. Spielberg mr compassion. Any what what's with all these compassionate woke progressives who want cop killers to be let out early so what they could kill another cop i. I'm trying to figure out what's what's the angle here. Why do you wanna cop killers early. If you're steven spielberg well a lot of these. Progressives fans of police officers but the what you mentioned before be unleashing these criminals back into the neighborhoods where a sheriff waiver said. The victims will be people of color. Here's a clue. They're very few victims of Of murder in Wealthy hollywood neighborhoods almost ever happens when it does. It's it's it's again if news Almost every day there's killings going on in poor neighborhoods black and hispanic neighborhoods And and it's black and hispanic victims overwhelmingly and the the the with this sentencing. This new sentencing scheme. They're not even going to be charged with the most serious crimes. They're not going to be sentenced for very long. I mean guests go wanted to go and let out past criminals early. He wanted to reopen all the cases until a judge said no. He wanted re-jigger current cases until the judge said no. He wanted to legal things but fortunately stopped at least for now. So now i can do. Is the future crimes and and reed hastings spielberg ask. What are they care. it's not them. It's not their families assets. It's just really just makes you sick. And i don't understand it never will understand it and of course they're never questioned about this stuff. I we got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt and ken. Chiampou kfi am six. Forty light everywhere. On the iheartradio app we'll be joined by investor of the restaurant called the classic cat on sunset boulevard in west hollywood after the news at four o'clock also joining us will be his attorney. Rod pacheco because they're suing to try to keep that restaurant open the la county health department. Come down a time and time again over pandemic violations. A lot of it has to do with their outdoor dining situation. We'll find out more but they felt like they had no other choice now but to actually go to court to try to survive this. It's crazy what's been going on for too long one more note. We were talking about all the hollywood fools who gave billions of dollars in total. George gascon George soros was the king of that million and a half dollars he. He is not just a a boogeyman. he's he's real. And he spent a million and a half dollars financing gas gone and hopefully we can end that in a few months. Yeah with a recall recall. George gaskin dot com another one bites the dust that convicted serial killer by the name of roger reecey kibi. Who has dubbed again. I hate this. The i five strangler. That's what he did to women. And he often took souvenirs like their hair or some of their personal items with him to remember his killings. He was found. John unresponsive his jail cell over the weekend with another Inmate looking down at him well standing there somewhere. One report says he was looking down on some savings. Just another part of the cell. The killer we believe is jason boudreau forty years old. A kibi was eighty one. They didn't actually. They'll convict him until about thirteen years ago of a number of these murderers they think he killed at least seven women together because they both got consecutive life sentences. They were not on death row. So that's why they were sharing a sack. I if one guy kills the roommate. That's great news stories of the day. Kibi did this over two decades. He was first convicted in one thousand nine hundred ninety one of strangling a seventeen year old woman to run away from seattle and then he got twenty five years to life in prison for the one thousand nine hundred eighty seven murder and then dna linked him to another of other killings where they think he may have killed six other women over a period of years so they had another trial and that's where he got the more consecutive life sentences in exchange for not going after the death penalty wonder how many he did that they never knew. Yeah because he reach a dead. He's eighty one. I'm sure he was doing this when he was Twenty one there's probably rapes Murder that he committed Going back to the nineteen sixties and seventies down. Because i i would think he would be At in his prime probably even more violent and murderous and number of these women were also sexually assaulted. Some were strangled with their own clothing. Line one woman was strangled with her tank. Top yet for the first murder he was known for was a woman that he lured into a van to discuss cosmetics job in september nineteen seventy seven saying. His office was under construction. There's a tip his not to go into van of a stranger who claims that that's his office for the day. His murderer we believe the guy that was standing in the cell and probably killed the strangler guy was in prison because he killed his girlfriend who we thought was going to go to the police and turn them in for his drug crimes. He was also a pimp weird about that though is he. Put her body the trunk of his car and eventually just right to the police station and admitted his crime and the reason was he said well. They're watching me. They're gonna find me anyway. He had some issues that was some pyramids there Yeah you know. Sometimes people just find each other in this life. I think we've all had a bad roommate. But boy nothing like these guys battle. Another restaurant shutdown over crazy. La county health orders. We'll be talking to an investor for the classic cat and sunset strip along with his attorney and what. They're trying to do to battle this kind of next john and ken show. Debra mark has the news.

John & Ken Show Hour 4 (06/23)

"World justice system to the direction of the twenty century the public outraged by this. We need to use science to address public safety violent. Crime data tweet flawed. Your data and your fire is dangerous to the community of the county. We are very very concerned about ships solid cans public safety. I am outraged at that. The zone of implementing laws of his own personal choice which we voted the so in a way that it's much more physically and socially responsible that only be breaking the law but he is not doing what he is supposed to. The district attorney indicted protective victim. I truly believe that two years in the wrong often teach should have been a public defender. He voted in could be voted out on his gaskin threat. Crime is on a historic low in the nation's story. Closing save on the recall of la county district attorney. George gas gone jogging. Can yes sir. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. John will be back next. Week is got vacation. We're here at the george. Gold recall desk for the usual reasons. But you know again. It seems like every week is a couple of more stories. The latest is that a man who killed his estranged wife in santa clarita. Just got a prison term. Which would allow him to be released a murder. He actually admitted the murder. But because la county da. George gaskins office does not permit sentencing enhancements. They're limited to how much time this man could serve and he may be released from prison. And knowing the way the state's going it may not be that many healed his wife. Apparently the family is devastated over her death which was just a few months ago. We're gonna welcome back to this show. Desert andreotti her son was murdered. His name was julian he was murdered back in may of twenty eighteen by five suspects who thought he stole some of their. We'd was a repeated. Beating and stabbing was terrible terrible and they eventually drove up highway thirty nine and a zuza to the mountains to toss the body but they realized he was still alive so they stomped on his head. I mean this is disgusting. And the worst of the worst and again because of george gascon then not going to get the maximum time that they are certainly entitled to and desert has been leading the charge recall. George gaskin dot com is the website. Let's welcome back to the show for an update as to how it's going now that they're out there collecting signatures desert welcome. I can't how are you by the way what's that. Thank you for having me. Oh you're certainly welcome. You're always a great spokesperson for this. Call is and we understand that it's got off to a good start it has Been to vote and even are paid Signature gathers We've collected over sixty thousand signatures so far and we stopped thousands of other additional signatures that we still have not counted. verified or collected yet. So you're hoping that we can reach one hundred thousand hopefully by this weekend. I'm i'm really hoping so the total that you guys need is. We need five hundred ninety thousand by october twenty seven so this is definitely not a small task so we can continue to need all the volunteer financial support. We can get you know to ensure that we can collect these essential number of signatures that we need in a relatively short time to recall to get the recall on the ballot next year. Yeah i mean. October is just a few months away and you know what happens with these things. You can get the low hanging fruit quickly because a lot of people who tuned into this story were anxious to get the petitions and decided me me. I did it the first couple of days so but did right. It's going to be a grind over the next couple of months to get these additional registered voters in la county to sign up. That's correct that's correct so we're asking what you know what this means to to us if we need you. Your family friends co workers anyone registered. La county voter to go to recall. George gas scone printed signed a petition. You there you can. Volunteer to hold events contribute financially. If you can but again recall george going dot com print sign and mail the petition because you can find it and not mail it is. That doesn't help us. We need to be mailed in last week. He had that Press conference and again. He gets some of the media to show up just because he knows he's in trouble so he's trying to send out an anti recall message but there was really nothing to it. That's exactly it was a pathetic press. Conference is he. Is he's worried he's worried that this recall can actually succeed and i'm actually very hopeful that this will succeed we will. We will get him out of office near the difficulty with this recall. Is it a lot of people. Don't pay attention to one. Da does for a county. There was a big turnout last november. Because people were all whipped up over the presidential race and a lot of people voted for this guy just because On the ballot and the activists supported him and he looked like He was about reform and that was the big story last year. Criminal justice reform but what he has done with these directives. I think people wake up and realize the man in charge of the criminal justice system in elliott county is on the side of the criminals. I don't know if you've heard our guest yesterday a desharnais. But he's got these public defenders. He's taking public defenders in assigning them to positions in his office and they're going out and contacting the criminals to tell them. Don't worry we'll reduce your prison time. Just let us take care of. Have you ever heard this craziness. Never never act like a public defender so to hear that he's hiring. Public defenders does not surprise me. That's his speciality. He he wants to defend the victim but what he should be doing is move on to the public. The public defenders office. He doesn't need to be a district attorney. He's not acting like one you should not be one. And for that reason he needs to be recalled immediately. Any he writes off. People like you saying well. They're just they're grieving mothers. They're overwhelmed with their emotions. Understand how it works and again to try to sell this and this is what he tried to sell the more time. We put people in prison. The more recidivism. There's going to be. That's upside down as you make sense. It doesn't make any sense and for him to dismiss us victims. That's another reason why he should not be a district attorney. A district attorney is to be there for the people to be there for the victims not to turn their back. And and again have me relive moments revictimizes not only myself but so many other victims out there who in their right mind a district attorney would do that to their victim. Okay so again. The website is recalled. George gascoyne dot com and it says here you have some features that allow people to view and post to pop up signature gathering events on a master calendar. Yes that's correct. It's very easy to see you. Can if you're if you're going to be a pop up signature gathering. Just put your information in there. And that way. When people are looking for a petition locations they can find it. There's also permanent petition locations that you can find there as well very easy very cool to look at all right now. I don't wanna put you on the spot. But i have to ask you this question because i'm aware of it. What is called. George gaskell now dot com. Is that a competing recall effort or is it a joint effort. I can't figure this out you know. I believe it's I think it's a competing. I'm not sure. I haven't looked into it. I did hear about it. I was actually gonna look into that. I'm glad you reminded me about that. i believe in maybe compete. I don't believe it's a joint effort. we have. we only have recall. George dot com. Okay because when people are out there with petitions they may not sign yours. Sign the other. Recall and i just wanted to get this straightened out. Hopefully there's a way 'cause this was kind of going on with the newsom. Recall hoping there's a way you guys can combine forces because that's just not really a good thing to half. I agree. I agree. And i will definitely look into that. All right does right. Thanks for coming on again. We appreciate your enthusiasm and all your hard work for this effort. Yes thank you for having me appreciate it. Thank you for getting out to the public. Okay disarray on trading is our guest. Her son was murdered back in just a few years ago by five guys who were disgusting. They tortured her son and they eventually Beat him further because they realized he was still alive. The reason she's taken up the cause is because la county district attorney. George going is not going to pursue special circumstances that included deadly weapon kidnapping robbery. These charges would have put them away for life without parole if convicted but because of gascons reforms all special charges were dismissed in court which means these guys can get out in very short order. That's why she's become a big part of the effort at recall. George gascon dot com author. Good start sixty thousand signatures. But that's only about ten percent of what they need so go there. Download the petition. Donate money be part of the effort. This is an important thing to do. John and ken show kfi. Hey johnny kidd show ten kobylt. Ken chiampou live everywhere here on. Kfi on the iheartradio app. The voice line is finding. Its way back to the airwaves in fact two days from now at this very time. We'll be playing moist line. Callers you wanna be a part of it call one eight seven seven moist eighty six one eight seven seven six six four seven eight eight six. Get your calls in there. And maybe you'll hear yourself on the airwaves. The la county sheriff. Alex via wave is gonna join me after five thirty. He held a long news conference event. Today i got to watch a good chunk of it made a presentation to the media. What he calls the architects of failure when it comes to la county's homelessness crisis. Can you take a guess who the architects of failure would be. I'll ask him about that. But of course it's the usual suspects. The mayor the city council the board of supervisors that los angeles homeless services agency which does nothing but spent a billion dollars a year. I really can't believe that. There's a couple of la city councilman want to remove l. a. from that agencies grip it's unbelievable and wave. He expression that we point a homelessness industrial complex a six and a half billion dollars down the drain in the last ten years for homelessness and now we may have eighty thousand homeless people in la county. So i'll go over what he tried because the media then not respond to this really. Well i don't imagine. I didn't stay around to see what the questions were. But i can only imagine that. It was not a welcoming environment for the only major public official to take on the problem of the homeless. I remember debra mark. I told you the other day that i Got into a bit of road rage. Yeah you flip somebody off you remember it i. Oh by the way. The breaking news of the tiny earthquake in the four el segundo. Yes yes i told you. I was wondering hermosa beach. There's something going on down there in the south bay. I'm getting out are you. You want to come to my neck of the woods and the west san fernando valley. It's worse earthquake. You got the heat. Three point four okay. So everybody's okay everybody's okay just a few plates shook If even if it's just a blip but it could be a harbinger of big one could so get of the desk right. Can you imagine now so imagine this. This is why we tell you to approach with caution when you're out there on the roads just before two pm on june fourteenth according to seal beach police officials a man from hemmitt got into a road rage incident any took out bear spray and he sprayed it on the family fighting with his name. Is marcus kelly. They caught up with them. The drivers of the two cars were southbound on pch. They got into some sort of verbal altercation. One of the drivers turned off a pca to get some distance. Then parked got out the other driver followed pulled up next to the car and sprayed him in the car with hairspray because the park vehicles windows were down the spray got inside where there were three people including a child now now it's an irritating aerosolize deterrent similar to pepper spray. It's even stronger. Didn't somebody have that. At the capitol. Insurrections have pepper sprayed. Yeah the suspect. You of southbound. Sage was a was not immediately caught. They did suffer some injuries including skin irritation. But he's been taken into custody and They finally caught up with them was out there in the roads. Bear spray coming up next. The la county sheriff. Alex villanueva fresh off his press conference today with the media over his efforts to do something about the homelessness crisis. Talks to me coming up. John and ken show. Kfi am six forty. John and ken show john kobylt. Ken chiampou john a week. Off out here with debra mark. Lena the news updates chance right now to talk once again to la county. Sheriff alex via the waiver who had a news conference this morning about efforts in the county and do something about the homeless crisis and of course he made news a couple of weeks go because he announced he was sending his deputies along with outreach teams into venice. Try to do something about The thousands of homeless people that have taken over a lot of public space. So we're gonna bring the sheriff on right now and talk to them and get an update on everything. Welcome back to the show and a waiver. Thank you can how you doing. I'm doing just great. I watched about twenty minutes of your presentation. I was quite impressed. You are really and you have decided to take on and you even use the term. The wo- crowd. You pointed out very early on in your news. Conference who the architects of failure are in the homeless crisis in l. a. county. And you mentioned garcetti. The board of supervisors the city council and of course this los angeles homeless services agency. All of them combined have made this problem worse. And i think that's what you were trying to tell all members of the media today. My right You gotta right on if an alien ahead. So apparently you're calling on the la county board of supervisors to declare an emergency They need to right now. Where our economy is imploding. Our tourism industry evaporating. That's gonna leave tens of thousands of jobs out of businesses and which is gonna further Exacerbate the homeless situation. So we're we're doubling down on stupid as we speak so we need to change our course of action. I know. I mean you were presenting charts. You were showing how the homeless a your estimate now is that there's eighty thousand homeless people in l. a. county. It's ballooned over the years. And yet i think later on correct me if i'm wrong i think you said the spending is about six and a half billion dollars over the last ten years on this problem you gotta right. That's exclusively devoted earmarked for homeless six point. Five billion dollars in ten years only to see the problem double in those ten years. That's just blows my mind. So what are they doing wrong. You have stepped up. You were the biggest public figure we know of here on. Kfi in the join can show who is taken really an opposite stance on this problem. And it's one that's common sense. We all agree that it's not working whatever they've been doing. What do they've been doing wrong. And i think you mentioned that this housing first thing is the wrong way to go yes. They're big mistake. A cardinal sin. They refused regulate public space. When you don't do that you're surrendering to anybody. Who wants to show up and do whatever the hell they want. That's exactly what you're seeing on the streets of every neighborhood in la city and some parts of la county. And of course we know by now that your deputies are conducting an operation in venice. Aunt you tell us how that's going. Because i think in the interim mike von went public with his plan to do the same thing that you're outreach are trying to do. Any also claimed in a couple of quotes. I saw that. Your sheriff's deputies are just getting in the way and don't know what they're doing well it'd be nice to see if we got in the way of something but we just didn't see anything you know. They're his plan is basically no plan but the same thing that's failed before 'cause he doesn't wanna address public space he says we don't want law enforcement to be involved great. That means the homeless as they. I don't wanna go anywhere. Screw you bonnin. I'm gonna stay right here. He's okay with that and he wants to move on and let the let the community. This absorb the loss and suffer the consequences having a homeless and cameras that can continue to grow so we gotta put an end to that and it starts with regulating public space. You talked about Five deaths a day of homeless people. Yep five a day the corner patty wind comes along and scrapes them off the streets and that number is going to continue to grow because you have people using dope twenty. Four seven was no consequences whatsoever. Their health spirals downward and there's nothing to erupted in the old days prior to prop forty seven. They get interrupted when they go to jail. They clean out. We get them back on their meds or whatever. It was three squares a day. Get their body way back up and get him into a halfway house retreatment. That doesn't exist anymore. Because none of them go to jail so they just spiraled down to the diet yeah he you mentioned prop forty seven and the architect. Data's the la county district attorney. George gascon when he was up in san francisco this past in two thousand fourteen. It is really complicated the problem because as you said you can't compel them into treatment. They don't care anymore. I think you mentioned how the treatment centers don't want business these days. Now they don't. And i remember when i was a young man working in the county jail. You cannot find that these were all at max capacity always because everybody was trying to get bed to get out of the county jail no more so you can thank. George got for that one and you talked about tourism. I saw the segment where you had gone to olvera street to talk to the merchants there. The restaurant owners about the devastating problem with the homeless on their business. Oh yeah one. Third of all the kiosk street are closed for good. The the the school children on their field trips day-trips they used to stop by there. No more everything has been abandoned in favor of the homeless encampments. They keep growing around. Overstreet is just utter nonsense then. They take a parking lot devoted to tourists there. Were supposed to vote about a street and now it's another homeless Treatment center so i guess Screw the tourists are going to go straight and screw the owners of the shop owner street. They don't count. You also explained your authority in the situation by laying out the entire map of the county and reporting to some of the codes and so forth about how the la county sheriff's department can have some jurisdiction here particularly when we're talking about venice which is in the city of los angeles and mike bonds council district. How is what your deputies are doing there. How does that differ from what we've seen fail for somebody. Years spent as where one we actually follow through. We get people the except the services we get them to move on we clean up after they move on behind them so we return the former encampment to its original state and then we regulate the public face so someone pops up again to try to reestablish it. We're gonna tear that down as well and we're trying to get people into treatment and the out of town crowd the out of state crowd We're also we have a service provider. God bless him who's actually facilitating reunification of loved ones out of state. So we got four people from venice. That are now in row back home. Yeah that's a big part of this hour. Is it going so far in venice. I mean how many people do you think you've gotten off the off the boardwalk there are lieutenant. Dietrich said they got sixteen off the boardwalk and they've talked about one hundred and fifty that they've they've done the assessment they're not done with assessment process. He'll have a full detail report on thurs tomorrow but he said about forty percent he could counter. Looks like they're out of state. Just don't nomadic drifters and now they call them urban campers and that has to end and you set this news conference that you have to also use law enforcement i mean. Is there going to be a point where people have to be told after. They've been talked to one hundred times about services. You gotta go. This is public space. Isn't that where you have to step in. That's option number four and the people might start making shirts that say option for but option. What is obviously going through. The the homeless alridge process getting people place into operation room key or other Nonprofits that have Room and we have One non stepped up and offer beds already and is helping the host team do assessments bless them so there are people that do wanna help. And then the second phase of that is. We're gonna identify safe campgrounds. Safe parking areas for rv's if that doesn't work option three is move option for is a is one through three failed option for. We're just going to enforce the rule of law. What's your reaction to baden's announcement yesterday. It's kind of interesting. It comes on the heels of your saying that your deputies going into venice and of course an effort that has now begun to recall him from office. Well it's too little too late and If he's got something is actually legitimate will. Actually we want encourage it. Wanna make sure people that. Are there homeless. Right now can get the services can get that Shelter space by all means. We wanna make sure that happens. We're not gonna get an away progress. We just don't see any. Yeah one thing you pointed out at a big part of the presentation is what you and we've referred to as the homeless industrial complex these five. Oh one c. Organizations that have taken a good chunk of this six and a half billion dollars over the last ten years. And you didn't pull any punches. You name these organizations. You showed executive compensation for these organizations. I mean what are they doing with the money. One thing they're doing their primary purposes Pay themselves that's what's happening with the money The majority of all of their money goes toward salary and benefits of their own employees. It doesn't go to. The homeless doesn't go direct aid to the people that need the resources the most. So we're we're creating an entire industry here. are industrial. Complex is homeless industrial complex. That is not helping the homeless in fact the more homeless the more money that goes into their coffers by wave of thanks for talking to me and i'm glad you're standing up publicly on the side of the people to solve this problem over public space. Well yeah we gotta keep pushing because we wanna make the place safer everyone right. That's sheriff alex villanueva. La county held a news. Conference today went on for about ninety minutes. I watched a twenty minute presentation. that delta specifically with Many of the issues surrounding the problems with the homeless in l. a. county. We got more coming up on. The john and ken show john and ken show. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio again. The voice line. Yeah in there. One eight seven seven moist eighty six. We present these calls on friday during the five o'clock hour. One eight seven seven six six four seven eight eight six anything. You want to comment down that we're talking about not talking about irritates. You makes you happy. That doesn't happen. people calling it. Something made the map. I listen to the happy news. That happened much. You run on. The joe can show with barn listeners. Who i just got done talking to the la county sheriff. Alex visa-waiver as really taking it. On all of these politicians the only city council the mayor the board of supervisors. He has decided to step forward and try to do something about the homeless discouraged which is affected so much of the county and particularly the city and of course the ocean front in venice so he really deserves to get some recognition for at least trying this. I don't know whether or not he's going to be successful in case you didn't hear the news. Mike bonds plan to get five million dollars from the city council to begin to remove two hundred people from the venice ocean. Front got the late and i looked at that story this morning and i thought they've already spent billions six and a half billion. Why does he need to ask for another five million to work on the biggest problem outside of downtown la and skid row. Does he have to ask for more money. It should be there already absurd. But they've delayed till july first so i don't think there's going to be any operation beginning monday. June twenty eighth as bond and boasted about Yesterday this story's talked about you know. I saw this when i was looking at the new york times on sunday. And it's a curiosity there's a class action lawsuit in the state of california as to whether or not subway sandwiches. The tuna sandwiches actually tuna so a writer for the new york times in a story that went on. I'm not kidding you. Eight printed pages decided to do something about finding out whether or not the subway tuna sandwich has any tuna in it and eight pages. She did a long dissertation on the history of tuna. The different types of tuna She talked to many people who used to be sandwich. Makers and subway they provide pictures. I mean it's kind of a popular item. People that really loved the subway tuna sandwich. She cut to the chase unpaid seven. She went around and collected more than sixty inches worth of subway. Tuna sandwiches removed in froze. The tuna meat then shifted across the country to food testing labs. She spent weeks chatting with two experts. This is what is this journalists. these take. Well here's what happened. After more than a month. Awaiting the lab results arrived. No amplify tuna. Da was present in the sample so we obtained no amplification products from dna. Therefore we can identify the species of what's in there. The spokesman for the lab said there is to conclusions. You might get one. It's so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out we couldn't make an identification or we got some. There's nothing there that's tuna now to be fair. The writer said inside edition did this to they sent samples from three subway locations in queens out for testing. And they did find tuna. So you know it's still a toss up. We'll see what happens with the class action lawsuit. I remember you used to talk about food conway on the show and didn't somebody on your show. Love the subway to sandwich. I sort of remember that. Yes somebody i loved it. And then they. They said they got allergic to The tuna don't some guy said he was allergic to tuna and the guy at subway said well then it didn't come from our sandwich always right because so much processed food these days anyway.

John & Ken Show Hour 2 (04/02)

"John and ken show john ken chiampou. Kfi games forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app Can't way today. We're gonna talk refilled malaysian from fox. Eleven he has been covering george gascon more closely than any other journalists in the city seems so several times. A week is a horrendous story. About some case that gascoyne is giving a break to the perpetrator and now he's he's big. He's downsizing the la county as hardcore gang unit complete with a new name. We're play his report coming up in a few minutes first. We wanted to get bill on just to give us an overview of what this is about bill. Welcome again to the show. Hey john thanks for having me brother now you see weeks ago. You broke the story that this was coming. Most likely. And now it's official. It's official yeah wednesday afternoon wednesday. After do my phone started blowing up with people in the hardcore gangs unit saying they were being called to a four. Pm meeting with upper management It was being held by maria ramirez. Who's a bureau director For specialized prosecutions and the da's office and basically. What they were told is that people were texting me as this was happening. They were told that the unit is going to be gut it. It's going to be severely downsized. They were told that george gas going wants to quote. Reimagine the unit More community based and that they want to change the name because gas going in the administration don't like the name It's unclear what the new name is gonna be but about the hardcore gang. Unit is the elite of the elite of the office. They prosecute the most serious and complex gang related crimes here in la county almost all of which are murders attempted murders. They have more than seven hundred active cases open right now so now everybody in the unit is wondering. What what the heck's going to happen with those cases because transfer notices have already started going out mass notices transfer notices from gascon telling them they're going elsewhere correct basically so the ones who are gonna be transferred out of the unit. They're going to be moved to other units branch offices and the da's office so they're going to be moved away from the hardcore gang unit. A small amount of them will be left behind but most of them. Some of them are going to be transferred out different branch offices throughout la county for for the average person who doesn't know what is having a hardcore gang unit bring. What is the added value of having this particular handle the cases as opposed to any other random prosecutors more so than just your your street prosecutor a lot of these are dda force you know high level prosecutors in the office who are uniquely trained to deal with conspiracy cases involving gangs wiretaps perkins operations collaboration with law enforcement. They teach law enforcement how to prosecute these cases and they go after the worst of the worst most violent targeted gangs and targeted areas. And they're the best of the best when it comes to this. This unit has been one of the oldest in the office. I think almost forty years forty years or so. It's been around for a long time. And they're very successful at going after these gangs and look at what's happening in the first quarter of twenty twenty one here are gang homicides are shooting through the roof and You know la county. Sheriff alex but when put this report out he he put out a blistering statement saying this is a disaster for public safety and he says this is not criminal justice reform. He says this is looking more like a suicide pact so the you know i it remains to be seen. What kind of fallout we're going to have here but john. That wasn't the only unit that was gutted. I was told that three hour before this meeting. The major narcotics unit had a similar meeting and they were told that half of their unit is going to be wiped out as well and those transfer list already started going out so in one afternoon desk going in his administration decided to downsize the major nocco unit as well as the hardcore gangs unit and the effect. This is going to be what well. I mean it. It remains to be seen but think think saying what are the critics fear down. Well they're pointing to the fact that look at his position on gangs. he's already taken away using gang enhancements. he's already taken away using gun enhancements. He's not prosecuting juveniles. As adults and now he's taking away a large portion of the hardcore gangs unit so read between the lines here. He's obviously changing up. How they're gonna be prosecuted gangs here in los angeles and from what i'm hearing from the prosecutors in this elite unit. They're frustrated because they say the gangs are taking advantage of this. They say the games are having jubilees commit hits because they know that they're not gonna be prosecuted as adults and they're gonna be able to get out within five seven years whatever it is. They know that gangs aren't going to have gang enhancements. There's no more gun. Enhancements field at the games are emboldened because of these policies. That was before this announcement happened. So now you look at. They're taking away these specialize prosecutors. It's known how many are going to be gone but the transfer notices are happening as we speak. i'm. I was getting text just fifteen minutes ago from people being transferred out of unit. It remains to be seen. How how gutted this unit is gonna be but these are the best of the best when it comes to going after gangs in la county. Look it's no secret. La gang land right. I mean had a huge game. We have a huge problem. Here in los angeles maybe more so than any other city and it it just it just you know law enforcement. They're just puzzled by why why he would want to do this now. You know i talked to black lives matter and they say look this is. This is what we've wanted. This is what we've been calling for. They feel that this unit You know marginalized communities and goes into neighborhoods and targets people just for their skin color and locks people up that way and that s going just doing what he promised but however the victims are all from these neighborhoods correct. Yeah and that's exactly what law enforcement comes back with the prosecutors. I talked to in the unit says. That's that argument is be. Yes he goes. I ve prosecuted asian gangs i prostituted hispanic gangs. I've prostituted white supremacist. Gangs black gangs. We don't care we don't go into certain neighborhoods looking for gangs will go where the crime occurs. And then we prosecute it and bring justice for the victims of these crimes and this is what's concerning about this so people in the unit were telling me on average each one of them have about fifteen to twenty active murder cases that are open at. They're working on right now. It's expected that when they're transferred to their branch offices they bring those cases with them and they're supposed to somehow keep working on those cases while also juggling the responsibilities of the up their new branch office and the administration is expecting those those as in the unit out of the goodness of their hearts. Because they care about their job and the victims to do double duty but what happens if prosecutors just throw their hands up and say you know what they they took me out of the unit. You know. I'm not going to work on these cases anymore. Those cases are gonna fall through the cracks. They're not going to be prosecuted. And these are not pleaser. The most difficult cases to prosecute because a lot of witnesses won't talk for obvious reasons exactly exactly and that's why these prosecutors are so frustrated You know they're they're. These cases are not easy to put together their very complex. It's hard to get people to talk. They have to do different operations collaborate with law enforcement and they are specifically trained in how to do this. These are veteran prosecutors. they're not newbies so so there's just a lot of frustration and a lot of perplex. You know of of why he would make this decision. We're gonna play your report coming out of the next segment You you're doing great work bill. You really are. It's like what you want. Best reporters have ever seen in my life. Honestly i that's extremely kind of you. I really appreciate that. And if you've got ten seconds did you happen to see what he he just tweeted out a couple of hours ago. No he He he evidently wants to reform Probation and parole. He tweeted quote every day. Four point four million. Americans are under community supervision often technical parole violations that pose no threat to public safety create a vicious cycle of incarceration costing billions. It's time for probation and parole reform translation where already giving people second chances when they go out on parole. When you're parole that means you're released from prison early and you have to abide by certain rules and conditions. It appears he's now saying well. Let's look the other way on some of those conditions because they're not fair and they're costing money so it appears now going to be targeting parole and let let's look the other way on some parole violations. He's pulled dozing everything. Is there just one more question. Is there any reaction. From a regular people. In these neighborhoods are most effective affected by the rampant gangs is there any organized or disorganized blowback coming from from the regular citizens. I mean other than the recall. There's no organized front. However there's there's a mom. I interviewed the other way the name the other week or name is asia courtney in two thousand seventeen. Her her brother ontario courtney was killed in a gang related murder a of main street mafia crips mistook him for a hoover's gang member He was just working on his car in the wrong neighborhood at the wrong time they mistook them for hoover and they shot him they shot. They shot him up over thirty times. Kill them and guess guess which unit brought the killers to justice or hardcore gangs you that story or is just a little while ago. All right a they'll bill. Thank you very much for coming on. Thanks for having me as always. All right don't malaysian Fox eleven investigative reporter. When we come back you will hear the story that ran on fox. Eleven last night about George gascoyne if you know what if he's getting recalled he's he's going to napalm the place on his way out he is severely downsizing hardcore gang in it and he's also going after the narcotics unit as well. We'll play that for you next john and ken. Kfi john. i can't show. John kobylt. Ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. I i. I can't believe this guy's doing it i. I don't think anybody in the world ever expected george. Gasco would come in and completely destroy the los angeles county district attorney's office and the business seem to be anything. That's gonna stop them. And until the recall gets voted on here is fox. Eleven bill mulugeta story on downsizing and renaming the hardcore gang unit. More was our justin. Da george dressed stone. Barns that offensive to the commune this prosecutor in the office hardcore gangs unit asked us for anonymity. He's one of many in the elite unit. Who tell me. They were called to a four. Pm meeting wednesday afternoon with upper management and told that da george gascon is downsizing their unit. Your words going away. Moving measure is war current children more. Cool the translator oversaw in other nits hardcore gang unit currently has over seven hundred. Active cases mostly murders and attempted murders. It is one of the oldest units in the da's office and it prosecutes the most serious and complex violent gang cases. The game news. Pretty much decimated eric's dollar to vice president of the union representing prosecutors in the da's office. He says gascons decision isn't a surprise he made you know these political promises discern fringe groups. And it's payback. So yeah it makes sense in terms back Legally and in terms of public safety issues in terms of running the office. no it makes. No sense office. Never responded to fox eleven's request for comments on wednesday however his supporters like local. Black lives matter activists. Achille agree with his decision. We have called for the disbandment of of that unit. Because we saw how it was abusive. How it was used to criminalize people in neighborhoods and we saw that it was ineffective. He is simply doing what the people have been asking for. That's why he was a naked but prosecutors in the hardcore gang unit say guests go has already banned. The use of gang and gun enhancements gang related murders are already shooting through the roof in two thousand and twenty one and that this decision will only make things worse hardcore. Jay go after all sorts of james also security revolt after criminal enterprise. I personally applause. Asian gang chases are across hispanic gang faces. White supremacist. Gang cases and i are positive. American gang cases crews and several age-specific after the quantity records and tonight la county. Sheriff alexander wave oh gave us the following statement in response to this telling us in part quote while gang members are busy driving up. La county's homicide rate. Da gas is now dismantling the hardcore gang unit that works in collaboration with local law enforcement. This can only serve to add gasoline. A raging fire of gang violence that threatens the safety of all. This is not reform. It's beginning to look more and more like a suicide pact. And we also reached out to l. a. p. d. for their comments on this but we never heard back. Wow doing this right. Furniture is here destroying the criminal justice system and he's got these accomplices these activists and who just lie make things up and then everybody's gotta try to defend themselves. Say no no. We go after all races. You don't have to defend yourself either. A guy commits a crime. Or he does. It doesn't matter what races if a guy is convicted of murder. It's because he committed the murder. That's the way it is. Most of these are murder and attempted murder. I the and and they do it. Because i think one of the most chilling things that bill said in the last segment was the gangs are now having juvenile members. Do the killings because guests gonul. Make sure they're out by age twenty five and they know. Now they're not going to be prosecuted for gun and gang enhancements. So nobody's gonna get terribly much time in prison. So what do you think they're gonna do. There's going to be more shootings and killings. And who do you think is mostly going to get killed. It's people in these neighborhoods. I it's unbelievable and everybody is just sitting and staring watching it happen. John and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt. Ken chiampou kfi am six. Forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. We got Coming up after four o'clock we got quarter from. Abc news is going to discuss the latest detail. Kind the shooting not shooting a little bit of everything it was. It was a guy from virginia. By way of indiana is names. No green and He's a member of the nation of islam and he may have lost his job anyway decided he was gonna come to the capital and take it out on somebody there now. The capital is largely empty because the holiday. And you've probably heard this but he ran over to capitol hill. Police officers then smashed his car into a barricade jumped out with a huge knife and aunt. Shoot him dead. One of the cops he ran over died. The other one was badly injured. He got shot dead. No green and there's details coming. They don't they don't know if he just on loan wacko lost his mind if he had Terrorist ties dono. But we're going to get the latest from abc news coming up after four o'clock are you there. I think discombobulated between told the story half hour ago but last night coming home and my son brought home. A new cat and the cat knocked over the birdcage rights. And there was this huge mess and a bird got loose and then one of the two cats are both killed. the bird. And it was just a big ruckus. So i told you bought a new bird this morning. That looks exactly like the bird murder. We got it into the cage. I was in a rush. Because i had to get here. Please don't tell me you forgot to close the cage. See what i did not again but don't let the dillard's or okay. No well it's it's it's some other creatures got in trouble because i went into the laundry room with our first cat to feed it because this new cat steals the first cat's food and i closed the door zoo and what happened is i also is carrying a little top of worms. Defeat the gecko. And i left the tub worms on the counter and then ran off to work and then my wife just texted me that Pluto the cat. The one who crashed the birdcage. It'd probably kill the bird Knocked the hub of worms. Just all over the floor and they come in saw dust one hundred worms all in saw dust and that's all over the laundry room floor and of course this is all my fault and so she's waiting for you to come home and clean it up. Oh god this is my life. This is an average day at home from well. Yeah i mean. This is what i got to put up with and in the end. Everything is my. I think somebody else needs to be the caretaker of the animals because you're failing well. Thanks for the support door opened. And then you leave out. I mean it kind of doesn't fall. I was just about to come up on. The air. And i looked at this text i got and she wrote. There are worms all of the laundry room. You must have let the lift top in there. And i had to scoop everything up. It's a disaster. This is what i'm getting. at least. She cleaned it up. So it's not waiting for you know it's not because you can't have one hundred worms squirming around on the floor in the laundry room. So they're they're isolated from the rest of the house. They're going to get a laundry disgusting. Oh wow okay now you feel better now. You got that out of your system. Well no and now. I'm going to be dreading coming home. Because right i've led to the death of a bird. Worms are probably dead to because they're supposed to be refrigerated. Oh so now you have to stop on your way home to go get more worms. We'll maybe yes. I think you should. Maybe yes look you try for a day. Now thank you. Nobody could deal with half the stuff i have to deal with. Believe now that is a lot kudos to you. What do you think i come here. Scream for four hours now. I know i would be in a rubber room. Otherwise i do think that you need to delegate some of those responsibilities. There's nobody delegate delegate to its. It's me i'm i'm a one man. One man band here The the idiots that run our government at the center for disease control get this these kind of announcements. Make me crazy. And of course the el segundo times love to run these americans who are fully vaccinated for covid nineteen can travel. Of course we can. Is that actually news. Is that a headline. What would be the point of vaccination if we couldn't travel and do what we want. This idea that the government is allowing us to travel is returning our rights back to us just absolutely fries be they still recommend delaying travel until you're fully vaccinated well that makes sense but if you're vaccinate manger vaccinated i realize just a heart there's going to be a lot of people don't know what percentage that will not let go of this. They will not let go no matter what happens. The rates can go down to near zero. We could be fully vaccinated herd immunity. And you're still see see these wack jobs walking around double masked scolding and and and trying to intimidate people and criticizing them. But if you the good thing is if you're vaccinated it means you're two weeks since your last pfizer. Or maderna's shot or their or their johnson and johnson shot. You no longer have to quarantine. After arriving at the destination you have to get tested before after unless your destination requires it. I guess people go to foreign countries but all that all that should be gone but really. Thanks for letting us know. Thanks for giving us back our rifle. Freedoms you're not fully vaccinated john until two weeks after your second one more week. I well. that's a week. I'm already doing what i want. In fact i'm gonna tell you something. I went at a state a couple of weeks ago. You didn't didn't quarantine ha ha. What that quarantine. Listen to this wacky nece here. The vermont governor. A republican is opening up vaccine eligibility to anyone. Sixteen years of age. As long as you're not white white people over sixteen cannot get the vaccine unless you've already otherwise qualified only black indigenous or people of color. This is a new acronym that i never of until maybe two months ago and now i see it almost every day. It's called by park. Be i means black. Indigenous or person of color. This is a newly invented acronym That was not existent recently. And now i don't. How could this possibly illegal. The governor can say anyone over sixteen gets a vaccine as long as you're not white. That can't be legal. Holy here's his tweet. If you or anyone in your household identifies as black digits or person of color by pock including anyone with abernathy or other first nations heritage these terms multiply overnight all household members who are sixteen or older can sign up to get a vexing. They have pock household focused clinics in northern and southern vermont. The first question is when you when you get the vaccination for you identify as black indigenous a person of color anyone who's non white white people have to be fifty years or older or you know fall into the various categories health categories and this is from the republican governor of vermont at this this christopher rufo. We've had on the show number of times. He's a researcher at the discovering discovery. Instant whom he said vermont's program of racially separated standards which denies medical services to a specific. Racial group is a flagrant violation of the fourteenth amendment. It follows the logic of critical race theory which demands the society practice racial discrimination to rectify racial disparities. But it is not compatible with american law. Vermont is an example of state. Neil racism a new racism that has gained popularity in recent years. Say or white person. You can't get a vaccine vermont. That is i. were unbelievable. Doesn't even describe this anymore. Kind of john and ken. Kfi johnny cash show by aim. Six forty live everywhere on the high heart. Radio app coming back to four o'clock robin. Abc news reporting on Whatever happened today in washington with At whack-job noah green who ran over to cops with his car then smashed car into a barrier outside. The capitol jumped out with a big knife until other capital. Police shot him dead. You have ended up with one cop getting killed there now. The one getting badly hurt no agreeing dead. And what did he do it for. Is facebook patients. He was a member of the nation of islam and these might have been thrown out of work. Recently we'll see if there's anything more that is you know. Stories also often change rapidly in the first few hours. And there's not that many details as to What motivated this. So i have. Four o'clock will do that Researchers say four billion masks are tossed out every day every minute of every day around the world. Three million masks are tossed out every day. That's four billion every month. A hundred and twenty nine billion every month in the world the massar made with plastic micro fibers. Now a lot of these bass if you looked around are also ended up on the ground because people are tossing. It's to walk down a block in la without seeing somebody's disgusting masks with other at there's disgusting mask lying on the ground and often they've got some kind weird stain on the inside. I i look that carefully almost every time. The the blue cheap hospital mass if they fall blue side down. It's whiteside up. That's the part over their mouth.

Yeah with all kinds of like Brown discussed yet is discussing this very common sight and now they banned plastic straws because one straw went up one turtle's nose now. We have four billion mask getting tossed out every day. It seems like they ought to be banning masks because this is a huge environmental hazard. Can you imagine they're going to find a dead sea lion or whale or dolphin or something. They're going to open them up and find fifty two masks in their gut clogging up their digestive track. I have never seen so much garbage from a single product of my life. I have and we. We are chests. Such a gross disgusting species. Is it that hard to throw the mask in the garbage. I just astonished by this. But you don't hear movement from all the environmental wackos or these idiot. Politicians who band the plastic straws. What else they played. They banned plastic bags they They banned plastic utensils. The masks have got to go for billion a day. I hundred twenty nine billion a month. Multiply that twelve is that a trillion a year. That would be over. Trillion a year. A trillion face masks a year are being used and every one of them if they if they don't end up on on the ground they're gonna end up at landfill. There's going to be gigantic. Landfills filled with a trillion masks. Are we come back.

John & Ken Show Hour 4 (04/23)

"Criminal justice system into the direction of the twenty first century. The public should be outraged by this. We need to use science invading order to address public safety by violent crime. You got it and thank the law your data and your dangerous to the communities of down. We are very very concerned about policy. Not only void hands public safety. I am absolutely outraged at the live. That took for death. Feeling has no mp lamenting laws of his own personal choice which we voted. The we've done so in the way that it's much more physically and socially responsible that only break the law but he is not doing what he is supposed to do as the district attorney and that is the victim. I truly believe that he is in the wrong office. Each been a public defender. He voted in could be voted out. Crime is on a historic low in the nation's story lows in the save and now for an update on the recall of la county district attorney. George gascon with. John and ken. John kobylt and ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Welcome to the newly inaugurated. George guests going recall desk. Yes in the voices you hear. And there are the many guests we had. They are family members of victims. Sometimes their wives sometimes their mothers a series of them in there along with. I think you're john. Tommy and john. Tommy is currently still in the la county da. -'s office as deputy prosecutor but he has been leading the charge against his own boss to explain how dangerous george gascon is made life for all of us in la county. Thanks to his directives so we are expecting. It could be coming in the next ten days. That petitions will start becoming available for you to sign if you are in. La county registered voter have to live in l. a. County be registered. Voter here to vote to take george casco and l. e. d. office and gascons latest atrocity in dismantling the la county. Da's office is sharply downsizing the hardcore gang unit. Got a new name was exit to this community. Violence reduction division. yeah instead of forty prosecutors. It'll be down to twenty six and they're gonna start focusing on prevention intervention and community involvement. Whatever the hell that means now these are the most serious violent hardcore gang members who actually kill people. And i don't know if they're going to send a bunch of therapists in or what We got eric's at all. He's vice-president association of la county. Deputy district attorneys former hand Former hardcore gang prosecutor so he knows firsthand what that job about. Oh eric thank you for taking time to come with us. Thank you guys. Were having that appreciate. It explained a with the hardcore gang unit. Normally does if you can just quickly summarize so that the taxpayers. The listeners can understand why it's important to have this traditionally we've had about fifty Prosecutors dedicated to prosecuting some of the most heinous gang crimes mainly murderers With in los angeles county Right now they have a caseload about of seven hundred and You know these are very complex cases. They specialize Training mounds amount of evidence. Most of these cases require to prosecutors per case the involved multiple defendants. Some of these guys have killed three or four people So it's you know. It's a pretty intense unit that generally has you know the cream of the crop of our office prosecuting. those cases as you As you noted he has not only downsides the unit by about half He's changed the name. I call it the cova unit because They are silent The action part is silent. there is no there is no coherent plan about how to deal with gang violence in our county now under this new administration and their efforts to reorganize the office and it seems ready time where this kind of violence is on the increase. Oh yeah that's that's the other thing. So at time when you know we were experiencing a decline a consistent decline in crime and specifically murder And the benefits were huge especially within certain types of communities like watts or experiencing a rather fragile peace that they were but they were they were enjoying us. Certain about a peace and now places like watch had one hundred thirty percent increase in their homicides. from your your today from last year so this critical time. He decided that he's going to cut that unit by half when he should be increasing. Those numbers aren't we going to end up with more young men especially young black men deng hispanic men getting killed. Now he's he's engaged in a major social experiments and unfortunately you know we're the laboratory and we're you know we're the lab rats that he's using the kind of help further his ideological agenda that is not based on science. That's not based on data. Let's just based on his personal opinions about what's what's going to be better for la county. So yes those are the key. The minority communities especially black men are going to experience the brunt of this if you look at the stats i think. It's like mid thirties A homicide victims are are generally black men. Generally it's gang related so they're gonna be bearing the brunt of mr gaskins radical experiment with la county. I can't imagine that the residents in these neighborhoods want this. Look i. i don't. I don't know who want except for him. And you know a few of is Supporters that living like atherton california and don't have to worry about crime in their neighborhood because they have a personal bar bodyguard. That's good to protect them. So you know. It's a very elitist way of looking at the world. It's a very unrealistic way of looking at the world. But you know he's the elected. Da and he gets to do what he wants. Yeah he seems to have this idea that almost like this conflict resolution i can do is embed my prosecutors into these neighborhoods and they can just sit down but the gang members and and we can work this out so that there is no violence. I mean is this simpleton thinking does he really stuff well. I think the other the other joke about this is that when he says they're going to be embedded in the community. He says he really means there could be embedded in lapd stations They're not going to be out in the middle of of the community Doing social work. I'm not sure what they're going to be doing. But it's It's it's it's it's a patriot and it's not well thought out as anybody tried this. Any other city tried this. Well we're not really sure what this is all right so that's the other problem. We're not sure we know all we know for a fact is that he's gonna he's decrease the numbers but we don't really know what the actual plan is. So it's it's it's we're all accent understand these prosecutors. They prosecute crimes for profession after the crimes are committed they hone in on who and they have to prove the case and to get these guys put away you take them from prosecuting cases. What are these people supposed to do. I don't know what what this means. Prevention intervention and community involvement. These are prosecutors. these are not therapists. Well i i think you you know. He's just using series of buzzwords. That i think he thinks paul well We're not really again. I don't think there's any plan other than you know going. Good thing the one thing that the guy knows how to do a press conference and that's about it so he's just dismantling it because he doesn't believe people should be prosecuted dismantling it because he is the hold into some fringe groups who don't believe in the criminal justice is so he's just trying to dismantle the criminal justice you know when he first ran for la county. He said he was gonna you know. Turn the criminal justice system upside down. And that's exactly what he's doing. Yeah that man seems to be is. He's just trying to destroy the system and era like you said he's got poll-tested feel good buzzwords like community an intervention and prevention. But it doesn't mean anything and they're not going to do anything he just wants to get rid of the prosecution of gamblers. What are you going to do with seven hundred active cases and point out you know those seven hundred cases there that that number is only going to increase. Murder rates are going up in la and they're going up in minority neighborhoods. They're being victimized and at the same time that they being victimized. We're retreating from the scene. It's gonna lead to more more people. Dying kirk thanks for all right eric. Thanks for coming on. We'll we'll talk again. Thank you okay thank you bye. Eric's ideal vice president of the union that represents a prosecutors la county association of deputy district attorneys and he used to be himself in the hardcore gang unit. That's the unit that guests cone is reorganizing and giving wonderful name community. Violence reduction division. He's right it's a cover what it is about destroying the prosecutor's office and he says that we we don't down the prosecutorial road here. We want to figure out some way you're going to end up with many more. Young black men getting killed and and you're not to hear any appeals at a black lives matter and i think this is what we have to keep coming back to. You're going to have lots of young black men getting killed and you're not gonna have prosecutions and black lives matter. We'll say nothing. And he's going to be very proud of dismantling the The prosecutor's office. What and then the people they the residents are going to have to live in terror because the gang wars are going to accelerate so what it's baffling like a suicide mission. We will stay to remember.

I have broken part because of the pothole in. This is how much of this crap are. we just going to keep on putting up with. We're short on money. Nobody says anything. And then they jack up more with taxes and where does that money go going to road. I think this verdict is going to have a real chilling effect on police. How many more people are going to die because police are not gonna show up or we're going to have reduced ranks of fleece or people aren't gonna want to even be police after something like this. Yeah we didn't want him anyway. Throwing back trying to listen to instructions next time back. Ruggeri part of chicken is the cartilage and sheltered an idiot. Go want to move into their single room cargo at costs more than my house. Wow it's all settled now. You really can't convict someone three times for the same crime. I never knew you could do that in. But i'm glad that we got it all figured out when the verdict was announced i heard office shrinking a lot like maxine waters lizard. One article command got the green light. Okay the big ten or proceed as planned to call gavin newsom greece confirm secret rhonda in court at eight p lizard. One over in out you know it was really nice about watching the end of that. Trial was that that judge just got to the point. This guy was straight to the point. Read it off. Walked off in the. Oj case. judge. Ito was grandstanding and wouldn't shut up. Guess that's the difference between someone wanting to be a star. Somebody want to do their job. Whereas the twenty dollar bill this whole thing started with an alleged fake twenty dollar bill which led to george floyd vena constituted by the police. The money disappeared. Thank you for leaving your message. Please hang out by getting money. I don't know who who's producing that. Did they make it available. Do you ever think that. Maybe you're carrying some. You don't even know it probably. Yeah just let him go. Most bills have probably traces of cocaine on them. Yeah supposedly that too. Thanks to stick your nose in your wallet. You might get a little bit of a bus high. I like the bitterness towards judge ito. After all these years that was nice. Tampa that that was a throwback that o j just weighed in this week about the and the shooting in ohio. It's all coming back and five years later. I got a funny picture. Somebody posted. I'll tell you before. I forget so somebody posted a screenshot of the big zoom meeting. Biden is having with all the other world leaders. I i think it's climate change nonsense and there's four to a meeting and s. fourteen of them on the screen in their boxes and now on zoom meeting right. He's the only one wearing a mask man. He's sitting by himself staring into the camera and the fake black mask on none of the other leaders do of course. They're all sitting by themselves as well a room with people. Well i don't know but juries far away from everybody it just looks like such a goof. Such a goof. Come on man high. We've got more moist. People coming up in about twenty minutes john and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt. Ken chiampou it's kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app everywhere and everybody i knew we were going to play another round of that moisture. People in about ten minutes from now The us food and drug administration and the centers for disease control and prevention did rescind their paws on the use of the johnson and johnson covid nineteen vaccine and and they did not go with the idea of a warning that could cause blood clots particularly in women of certain ages. They voted against that too. I sit back out there the way it was before right so we we've learned nothing. We've we've learned. Learned nothing. They just stopped vaccinating and And at the end of it all it's never mind. Sorry we brought it up. We did we tried to do some research is. There's nothing there. We don't know what happened now and it didn't really have much effect here at says. La county the pause because they have a lot of pfizer and madonna. Vaccine's and demand is slowing. We talked about this earlier in the show. We may have reached the point. Where because everybody every adult in california's now eligible for the vaccine. So we may be close to the point where everybody that really wanted it in the first go around has gotten it and now you have to reach the vaccine hesitant. The next this is fork in the road. Darwinism isn't it. Maybe because if if you're at risk i mean they. They got most of the older people. I think like an eighty percent of the older people. And then you dealing with like the fat right. Almost eighty percent of the hospitalized for obese or overweight. all right. well that's that's that's darwinism either you Go down the path of getting a vaccine and losing weight. So you're no longer in play as much or keep stuff in your face. You don't get the vaccine next round you hit the dirt you're done now there's your choice and your genes then don't Carry on to the next generation thing things end early. That's how you know certain wings. Certain branches of the species die out because they can't adapt to the environment. The environment says. stop eating. get a vaccine. It's not that complicated. Yeah and i knew. There was a pretty significant collection of people that were just waiting to see what happened to the rest of us after we got the vaccine. That group is starting to come forward but the exhausted soon to so forty years ago when there were far fewer fat people around we would have had a much lower death rate for People under a sixty five. Oh i think because people had people had fit bodies there was there was less pressure. there were less obesity. Related diseases like diabetes and heart disease was just people are healthier so place where this is hitting hard right. Now is india they add. I mean they're getting a circuit remember. I was last summer. They were one of the countries that was bumping way up in deaths and hospitalizations but right now here we are in april and The death toll. There is not near rs yet in. India has a lot of people but it's more than one hundred eighty. Seven thousand people have died but there in one of those situations. That was all too familiar here with the hospitals getting overrun. That's the concern there. I was wondering. I can't find any stories. How much vaccine you get into that country and what's going on with that is that oh let me look on the bloomberg Bloomberg's exempts just looking at california's maxine. Rate it would seem that. That would certainly help a because i talked to some people the medical field today. Who are saying to me that the reason particularly here in california for the downturn in all this was a combination of people already got covert and people that have been vaccinated. Put those two groups together and at least for now. There's no place for the virus to go right. We're have the pets. What herd immunity is about right right so you don't need the vaccine you also people that have already gotten the virus south india here we go india being overrun there. Yes he very light. Vaccine penetration only one and a half percent of the country's fully vaccinated eight and a half percent have gotten at least one dose. That's low right and so now that makes sense why this is coming out of hand. The thing is you look at the numbers and they're actually third in the number of doses administered one hundred and thirty eight million right but they had a billion people or something they have over a billion people. So it's it's only eight percent of the population that when we come back we will be visited once again for friday friends. The moist line people to finish up the show for the week. John and ken. Kfi juicy the story about that Drunken guy in the police chase that we're following earlier. What's the story the well if if you didn't hear your following this for quite a while this guy was driving all over the freeways mostly in orange county and the suspicion was. He was a drunk driver right and i wondered. Well how did how did they know that it turns out he was the one who dialed nine one to tell the dispatcher that he's leaving the bar drunk and then led officers on the chase. Sounds like he wanted to do this. Yeah the realto police department got the call and other people at the bar also called nine one one telling them drunk man hopped in the car and drove off. They say about when you're drunk. You sometimes really tell the truth. I guess it just came out of them. Call nine one one of myself. The bars open now. i should. That's a good question. There's certain restrictions. I think there are. I think they are allowed. Probably reduced capacity something It's good to know and you see comma harris while she's not going to the border she center book. They're for the children to reach his children's book. She wrote go bag and first photo of tiger woods standing there with crutches. yeah yeah covering florida. He'll be back next. Big golfer davis already did the masters. What's next british open british open. I think it's instead of trying to finish up with the boy slide. People leave a message in here. We go with some of your calls.

John & Ken Show Hour 3 (03/18)

"The john and ken show john kobylt and ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheart radio app. Welcome everybody quicker biter. Tomorrow's the voice line one eight seven seven voiced eighty-six for your call your voicemail. Make it into the collection. We play during the five o'clock hour. One eight seven seven six six four seven eight six brand new audio this afternoon. President biden ville referring to kamla harris president harris freudian slip also just another collection of cells dying. He's gonna send away vaccines from the united states will explain that to astrazeneca's vaccines to being sent out of the country. The bring them here. We'll get to all of that coming up later on You know the progressives the Angry belligerent progressives have perfected the art of shaming and one of the one of the shaming Surges that that is happening recently is over. Science started with shaming people. Believe democ right a pain. The science at before that was global warming science science denier and so that led into. Oh you're you're you're denying the pandemic science and now and you could see all this is because everybody's using the same language everybody's using the same tactics george. Gascoyne celebrated his first three months in office Anti should a press release claiming seventy one percent reduction in enhancements filed by his office. He thinks that's a good thing. These are the worst criminals the most violent criminals say the most dangerous felons and the enhancements means They didn't get charged with the most serious charges that will lead to the longest sentences. This is the stuff that gets you life in prison without parole. And and he claims he's got all this science that proves that if you let violent felons run free. There's less crime. He seems the only one he seems to be the only one who believes this. But he's the district attorney and we've got can't shied digger on legal director for the criminal justice legal foundation because he's been studying some of the alleged science these reports that gascoyne seems cite as proof of his ideology Can't welcome back again. How are you glad to be here again. All right what is gas claiming and what is the truth. Well in his Special directive that directed all of his deputies. Not seek any enhancements. He claimed studies show that each additional sentence year causes a four to seven percent increase in recidivism and that outweighs the benefit that we get from people and not committing crimes while they're locked up but the only thing he was ever cited for. That is one unpublished un. Peer reviewed menu script not yet been accepted for publication in any journal anywhere in the country. Even though it's been poking around for six years Studies been saying this for months. Nobody else looked into this but you. It's one manuscript that the guy's been trying to sell this for six years and can't get a buyer and So there is a body of literature on this Is not a whole lot of certainty but other studies in this area tend to show that the effect and sentence length on recidivism. That is on the same person committing more crimes. After he gets out is minimal. That it's not much one way or the other. That's the general thrust of what the show studies actually show and yet he's claiming that there's very powerful effect causing people to commit a lot more crimes after they get out and when he says that the that the research generally shows that he's just not doing the truth the longer. They're in prison the longer they can't commit any crimes that's right longer. There are no more victims from this particular criminal. I think that that's obvious unless it's other prisoners or something but yeah that's right that's right but i mean you have a guy if we put him in jail from now until two thousand twenty five. We know there's not going to be there. They'll be zero victims outside outside of the prison from that guy. I don't think you don't need to study a certainty that self evident correct but people who have studied that and then the less you know it's obvious and And sure enough there is. There is an effective of incapacitation that the person doesn't commit grants right. Yeah so he turns us around into just the opposite well. He claims that once the person does get out. He'll commit a lot more crimes than the same person would have committed if he'd gone to prison for a shorter length of time which is nice sense. That's she can't possibly study. He's got one outlier study And it it compares people Assigns at random to the hard sentencing judges versus those assigned the softer sentencing judges and does a lot of math. And comes up with this result But it's only one study and it's different than the whole rest of literature and when you have a guy who comes up with a conclusion that is unlike anyone else's and nobody is willing to publish it and it's yet and at and it's not peer reviewed. I have given him six years. See the covert studies their publishing in about a week. These days risk right but it is it. Is it possible that this guy was financed by the same sources that are pushing guys like ask own in other words. They know that allegation. I i don't know. I i don't have any information to that effect. I understand but that's what. I suspect right away because gas gone has to go into battle. He's got to be armed. He's going have to need a study because he knows he's going to get a lot of criticism. He's going to take a lot of flack so he's got to put up some kind of a shield. He's got to have some kind of response. Oh i got this study well. Who did this study well. This guy did the study but nobody reviewed it. Nobody published it. But it's it's it's my study. Well who paid for the study. I'm just because that is what i mean. That's the tobacco industry did for years. They came up with study saying that smoking did not was not connected to cancer and they paid the researchers to produce that in that particular. Study yes true. Does he have anything else. You'd he's never said anything else other than this one unpublished study s really flimsy and the me many says in the press. Release he says. Let me see if i can find it We're doing all of this. Because the science in the data tell us so. He said that's in his press release well science and the data. Don't tell us that. The science and the data tell us quite the opposite. I can't thank you very much. We're glad that at least your organization's looking into this. We appreciate it. Thank you none of the media's looking digger with the criminal justice legal foundation he's one of the researchers and he took a look at the non existent really evidence science that la county district attorney. George gascon is presenting as proof that the less time you incarcerate people the less crime. You'll have that's kind of where he's going with this right so if that's correct if we put no one away in jail crime go to zero. Yeah i guess you could take it to that extreme. sure right. well what's have had it see what happened and isn't isn't that the claims of some of the black lives matter crowd is they want to abolish prisons and police and the police. So that's where they're going. That's where gas is going that this is they're all they're all on the same ship ear. They're all teammates. So one guy has said. Hey i got to study the more you imprison someone of the more. He's likely to commit a crime and then other people are going. Oh let's get rid of prisons then. Let's get rid of the police. So no rests. No sentencing no crimes. It leads to zero when we come back. We talked yesterday to fox. Eleven bill malaysian. Who's also taken a close. Look at la county district attorney george gascon. He's got another story about a prosecutor who wanted to go on the record and be interviewed by bill and fox eleven because he was supposed to prosecute a couple of people who wanted to derail a train turns out. They were anti-cop protesters who are trying to derail a train. Thank god they were not able to do it but gascoyne his office. Basically set drop the charges and the prosecutor couldn't believe it because he had a solid case against them with video and witnesses will play you part of his report coming up john and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt and ken. Chiampou kfi am six. Forty live everywhere. The iheartradio app. This was actually a long piece on fox. Eleven had to edit it and we'll fill in anything we think important not included here. It actually ran over. Eleven minutes tells you it's important. Fox eleven's bill malaysian one of those reporters who is following the antics of la county district. Attorney george gascon and he told us yesterday that he was preparing a story concerning prosecutor who was reprimanded and transferred because he was ordered to drop a case against three and this parts critical. Three anti police protesters who were charged with attempting to derail a train. Here is our version of fox. Eleven's bill balloons report when you go into work every day and you do the right thing. That's what i did and i got. I got reprimanded for it for the past thirty four years. Richard doyle has been a prosecutor in the la county da's office thirty four years of service without any blemishes in his personnel file until last december when new da. George gascoyne ruled him insubordinate his first week in office to the office. I think it sent a message of you. Follow my orders or else. At the time doyle was the head deputy. Da in the competent office and he was prosecuting. This case against three anti police. Protesters emmanuel padilla christopher burg and jasmine lomax. All of whom had been charged with trying to derail a train at a protest near the compton sheriff station on november fifteenth. It was a strong case. It was a strong prosecution. Doyle tells me a major part of the case. Was this surveillance video from the conference sheriff station that day which fox eleven has obtained from a source surveillance video clearly shows. The two women will maxon berg. Pick up the barricade and start to drag it across so the evidence against them is incredibly strong just from the video. Padilla lomax and berg. Were all leader. Charged with felony attempted. Train wrecking that could carry life without parole. They were also charged with the lesser felony counts of unlawful obstruction of a railroad track. That carries two to four years in county jail. We did get an expert from union pacific to say that that yes that obstacle could have caused a train to derail so it's a very strong case. It's corroborated all the way around in the weeks. After the charges black lives matter and anti police activists were outraged by padeas arrest starting a social media campaign with the hash tag free. Amman video posted by george gasco shows him meaning with those activists on his first day in office on december seven the next day just hours after gascoyne was sworn in doyle says he got a call from mario trujillo a close ally of george gaskin who serves on his executive staff. He told me that the. Da has authorized me. Mario trujillo to direct you to dismiss the padilla case for further investigation. And i said reo. I know very well. What further investigation does the da want. And he said. I don't know and i told them. I'm not comfortable with dismissing what. I know to be a good case a viable prosecution without knowing the reason why and he said to me well can you just dismiss it today. We'll find out the reasons later. I said no a short time later. Doyle tells me he received this email from da. George guests gone himself saying quote. I've authorized deputy district attorney. Mario trujillo you to dismiss the padilla matter. It is my understanding you're refusing to do so. And mr trujillo will be appearing in court this afternoon to dismiss the matter on my behalf and sure enough. Trujillo drove out to compton. Courthouse met him in the hallway. I gave him the file. We both went in. I sat in the audience. And when the case was called he moved to dismiss it in the interest of justice no discussion of further investigation. That friday i was personally served a letter of reprimand for essentially disobeying a direct order of the. Da goes file permanently shortly after video. Posted a social media shows padeas being released from jail with the large crowd welcoming him outside of twin towers as for doyle. He says three weeks later. He was transferred from the comte office where he supervised sixty six people to the much smaller environmental crimes division further from his home or he now supervises only nine people. I interpreted as retaliation and punitive transfer. One asked mr gascons administration. Why the entire case was dropped against all three protesters. I was told quote. The felony counts were dismissed in the interest of justice following a review of video evidence and inconsistencies in reports from the arresting agency. Doyle tells me he believes the evidence. Was there to convict all defendants on both felony counts that there was no legitimate legal reason to drop the entire case against all of them and he believes gasco did it to send a message on his first day to the public enlarge. It's that hey see. I'm on the side of the protesters on the side of of this. I promise that i would be progressive. Da and here's here's evidence of it not going to go away without fighting this because it's just wrong at some fox eleven bill malaysian and by the way another part of this that we didn't have time to play. One of these guys was charged. He's protesters emmanuel padilla of recordings of his jail. Cell calls and he's talking to his wife and he's saying should i hire a high price defense attorney or should i use my personal journey whore. Hey consult a friend of gascons who contributed a thousand dollars to gas race. Da works walls connected. This is corruption. this is garbage. This is horrible because had that had there been a train and there was a train coming shortly. There removed moved the barrier.

You won't be prosecuted if you throw a barrier in front of a train especially if you're my protester friends anti police people who helped win this office. This is so dangerous so scary so infuriating. That alone is reason to recall. George gas gascoyne the smugness. The arrogance The retaliation against this This other prosecutor. This is horrendous. Never seen anything like this. It's a terrorist act. Yeah it is to try to derail. The train is a terrorist. Act domestic terror if you woke up tomorrow morning and you heard that bunch of terrorists had thrown an obstruction in front of a train and derailed. It and fifty people died would have been enacted terrorism. You'd want the death penalty is right. Guess conan's sanctioned that is a legal act this out crazy he is. We got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt. Ken ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Looks like we got a new addition to r biden. Ville desk today today just hours ago. Joe biden came out to celebrate hitting the one hundred million covert nineteen vaccine does within one hundred days of his administration which we told you back then was silly because we were already on that pace. When trump was president. I know he really low balled the number so that they could have a phony events like this today. Exact and it's It's it's well short of one hundred days and they're going. Oh my god look at that. What a great victory great victory. This was the pace that was going on before he took over and he just he just Deceptively made it sound like it was a tough mountain to climb and she didn't go anywhere. He took a virtual tour of a vaccination center in arizona virtual tour so he just looked at the tour through a dvd screen can tell me does everything he reads from screen watches everything from screen. He's virtual president. Well cuss a lot of money. Think that oxygen tank around so so he's with vice president. Coppola harris at this is what happened president harrison. I took a virtual tour of a vaccination senator in arizona. What was that say that again. I'm president harrison. I took a virtual. I actually johnson arizona president harris. He's referred to her as he referred to as president-elect at one time that's right yeah well. Now she's president. That's the election happened. And now she's president harrison lawn before so speaking of the we should. We should do a google pool. Joe bottle make sure you had that to biden ville eric. Yeah get slip that in somewhere. President president harris couple of vaccine notes astrazeneca has been under the microscope because there have been reports of people suffering blood clots after they got the vaccine in other countries. It is not yet being used in the united states although explain that we have millions of doses. The european union did an analysis and says that it's safe and again. Some of these blood clots could be incidental with receiving vaccine and they were not that many cases. No it's very few Loves panic porn and iran. With this over hyped story it was terrible because all date is it delayed people's vaccinations in europe for a few days and and and the virus is spreading again. Paris is going to be locked down large extent for a month. Starting now right. The president of francis is paris and this could spread to To a lot of other districts and part of the problem big part of the problem is they didn't buy the vaccine the european union. This is why they were way behind. Vaccinate okay everybody was was was criticizing great britain for getting out of the european union. Well they're vaccine program is is going great guns because they made quick decisions to buy a lot of vaccine early the european union bunch of stodgy old belgians and germans fussing around they never they never got around to buying the vaccines quickly enough. They didn't wanna buy from the brits. Because it's left the eu day. Day have doma during the vaccine in europe. Right now they have no pfizer vaccine. And that's see. Israel got a whole lot of vaccines that need a big percentage of the population. I think What sixty percent ready. Something like that israel. Smart knows what it's doing to make quick decisions. It's just it's just basic intelligence. These bureaucrats in addition to be off. Stodgy and constipated. They're very bright. They come up with these these complicated formulas but it's not intelligence stuff. It's just complicated. And so now. They're they don't have any vaccines now again. You all the crap that trump took look where we are. Now we've got to vaccines that. Have been being ejected for three and a half months third vaccine now is rolling and we have twenty percent of the population. I think that is the least gotten one injection in s. What in it's like three percent the. Us has seven million releasable. Doses of the astra zeneca vaccine seven million. That's the fourth vaccine. We're going to have however today. The biden administration apparently is giving away two and a half million in mexico a million and a half to canada claiming that those are surplus. I know where did you say and california. They keep claiming that there's a shortage. Of course they have it approved. Ask ask who've astra zeneca so therefore they can't really give it to california or any other state because the fda hasn't given the green light yet. So i don't think we're going to need the astra zeneca vaccine by time. It does get approved. Think so it's going to happen soon but They astrazeneca's had problems. They haven't even submitted yet for an official review. Oh i thought. They submitted for emergency approval last week. Hitler remember seeing that story. Oh maybe they maybe they just edit. Yeah but it's still not It's not near approval. This one's actually kind of humorous. I guess if you look at it that way the other night when biden was interviewed by george stephanopoulos. We didn't play this audio. Play stuff about the border. He called vladimir putin a killer. Well apparently that's big news in russia and the leader of the parliament over there wet nuts over biden doing that vladimir putin today wished biden good health. Oh he's known to poison people he might get date umbrella in the pants. Joe's nighttime milk yeah takes four o'clock. Yeah three pm dinner. They better have the secret service. tastes that belt first. Putin also implied that it takes one to know one. How about that Basically said if you call someone names that's really your name when we characterize other people or even when we have other states other people. It's always so we were looking. Are that when you were eight that that was the response on the playground. Takes one to know what you call somebody. An idiot takes to no one and sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never harm these put. Wow because biden said some cryptic things about. He's gonna get punished coming days what he said. Yeah is he because supposedly poten did interfere in the twenty twenty election like that mattered. Oh yeah dead against biden. It's the way it's going to be forever by this twenty sixteen that was all the rage that trump only one because of russian interference but again. And there's no claim of sabotage. Stand out because it was guy is it was a billion times exaggerated. We got a of russia in facebook. Ads johnny imagine changing your vote over a facebook ad. johnny. Ken show john kobylt and ken. Chiampou kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Are we have another update on recall signatures gathered to oust gavin newsom as governor. I give you the final number. Yeah final number. That looks like it is a tremendous number. We're going to have on an assemblyman by the name of jordan cunningham from san luis obispo who that it's an outrage and incredibly dumb. The california department of public health has put out guidance on how many spectators may come and watch their kids play sports and the entrance one spectator player as his door. You sporting events. Oh good out. The order pick a parent again with the outdoors getting the virus outdoors. Nobody that silly micro managing something that they don't know enough about over-regulated overcomplicated micromanaging. Stop this crowd. I saw this headline last night in the sacramento bee. They have this section called the state worker that that because that's probably a percentage a good yeah. Readers sacramento doesn't exist without state were that workers fact check. We'll state employees get twenty five thousand dollar bonuses from biden's kovic stimulus and i thought. Let me scroll down. I'm sure the answer is going to be. Maybe or false and actually the rating is mostly true. There really are going to get twenty. Five thousand dollars created a fund in the stimulus law to give premium paid to state. Employees were deemed essential employees of date teams. Eligible would be able to receive up to thirteen dollars per hour on top of their typical wages for all work during the covid nineteen. That's always everybody in the employment development department going to get a twenty five thousand dollar bonus all that's good the people's lot of time keeping people on hold and shoveling out the forty billion dollars to all the criminals around the world. Everybody at the dmv. How about everybody working on high speed rail or they all get twenty five grand. Now of course employee unions for state workers very powerful because the next sentence says who qualifies for the extra pay is largely up to the states. The law defines those eligible as worker needed to maintain continuity of operations of essential critical infrastructure sectors and additional sectors protect the health and wellbeing of the residents of state the territory or the tribal government hd palmer. The hole for the department of finance set new symbol make decisions on who should be should be eligible for the sorry here. It was a bad lunch ahead who he thinks should be eligible for the premium pay. Plus how the rest of the federal money should be. Spent interest revise state plan in. May what is possible. The going to give state workers twenty five thousand dollars twenty five thousand dollars. So this is this is what this big bailout was. There were there. Were no state employees who were Laid off they lay off. Anybody know they probably worked from home. Some i'm sure. Because what do they do. They just sit at cubicles. They don't do anything. They stare at screens so they all stayed home. They weren't outta work it seriously. All these departments get the completely fouled up. Everybody's life honest would you are is really somebody in the. Dd that's getting twenty. Five grand not yet dmv. Now is homer says it's possible private sector. Employees might get some money to all real on newsom identifies an essential worker. How about every restaurant worker. That got laid off. I could see them giving money. Maybe to what you call state hospital employees. Maybe the state hospitals. But this is this is all printed money. The dishes all fake money. They don't get but why do why do they deserve anything. Agencies and commission people were put out of work because a newsome's absurd lockdown policy then. They were denied unemployment benefits. And now the people who created the lockdowns and wouldn't give out the unemployment money gotta get twenty five thousand dollar bonuses. Oh god how horrific is that all the people fouled up our lives. They're giving themselves twenty five thousand dollar bonuses ever all. The hardships from the last year came out of the government. And they're stupid stupid policies. But we're gonna watch and see if they give the may budget revise twenty five thousand dollars to state employees. We're going to find out more on that. Because with the surplus coming in and looking at another story that they may delay some pay cuts to state employees. They had scheduled because suddenly. We're rolling in money. The coming up the official unemployment rate in california's nine point three percent. Almost double what. It is in florida too. She get the twenty five thousand nine point three percent and that's much higher than that because a lot of people have stopped looking for work. They're not officially counted as unemployed. That's another fake statistic. The real unemployment levels in double digits new recall signature number. If you and then we'll talk about this california department of public health guidance that if you're gonna go out on the field and play sports y- should only have one spectator one to watch them. Play soccer whatever coming up next. John and ken show debra mark has news. Kfi am six forty.

Granados speeds through the red like he hits her She goes up in. The air comes down. He runs her over any keeps going. He doesn't stop to render aid. My sister she dies at the scene He did not have insurance. Do not have a valid driver's license. He's he didn't even get bail. He's out right now The police tracked down Later and arrested him. He was charged with felony. Hit and run. We know this is a very serious crime. I mean he you wouldn't treat an animal like that he My sister for dead and mr granada. I mean he took a life and he needs to be held accountable for that. That's all we're asking for is accountability. Were asking for justice We getting the run around With the la county da's office To a couple of my brother Is is an attorney. I'm i'm also one as well as being a minister as well but he's been in contact with ada Franscisco had rica's his boss Eight john and ken callahan. They they said the case the solid. And so i'm like okay. If there's a solid case then why are we. Talking about giving him you know or entertaining probation. We understand that his attorney is going is I'm going to request probation The next court date is june. The twenty eighth and You know we just really want justice. You know where i mean. This whole ordeal has just really been very difficult. for all of us we've tried to get Police reports we've gone through all of the proper channels My brother easy founded the record section there A couple of weeks later. He was told he was told. The weather backed up and he might not be able to get something until january so then he tries to go to the discovery section of the lapd under the california public records act. He was told they couldn't give it to that. He needs to needs to come through the record section. so it is it is really Just crazy it is it is it is horrific i. Our family really has not had a chance to grieve. i mean marvel. There's eight of us you know. My father was a minister. And and and my my father and my mother had eight children. Margo what's number eight. She was the youngest. She moved out to los angeles like so many to follow her dreams and she work but off of hard and and she was able to to get a job in medias. You guys know how difficult that is and for her to come to a place where so many come to make it into work hard and then to be killed and then you know were there. You know we're we're we're being led to believe that there's probably gonna be probation in this case you know i. I don't think my my daughter. My sister i think about my daughter because my daughter was telling me just not too long ago that she will see her get married one day and so i think about you know My sister and we have so many questions. You know We're we're like well you know. Where did he go after he. You know he left my sister in the street. You know What was so urgent that he had to do that. He couldn't stop for help. You know We're you know the witnesses witness was across the street and we heard it a thing about how hard you have to hit somebody here and come out of your house and see what you know. What's going on you know or you know. What did he say what. He was apprehended by the police killed. My sister was on drugs Once he on the on his safe all they will tell you no is it. These are questions we are. I mean we know from the face sheet that we have that he lived nearby. I mean did he know her. Did he intentionally show her. I mean this. I mean this i i. I really don't know what what is going on. I guess you can you hang on. Hang on we'll get into this. The reverend peter span and by the way. Peter did say from out of state and when i was going to say to them. I think from wisconsin. He's talking about his sister. Margot span an award winning journalist board member with the national association of black journalists who moved to l. a. She was killed in a hit and run crash back in march. This brings us to george gone because the county. Da's office apparently is not pursuing any jail time for the driver who was without a license and again hidden run. Didn't stay around to render any aid. Tamargo and i was just going to say to peter. He may not be familiar with this. Da but this does not care about victims and their families. He cares about the criminals and he wants to keep the jails empty. So that's why they're pursuing probation which is wrong. We'll talk more. We come back. John and ken. Johnny show kobylt ken chiampou. Kfi six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio back radio. The radio bandol is on monday. The mornings and gary go to back ten o'clock right now. We got the reverend peter span on the brother of margot span margot span a journalist. Who was killed by a hit and run driver in march here in la. They caught the driver. Ruben granada us but it looks as if he is going to be set free on probation jail. Tie of the la county. Da's office led by. Of course george. Gascon recalled gas cone dot com. Let's bring reverend peter span back on the show but before we go any further and you you mentioned earlier that right now that there is a vigil going on at the site of margot's ruling. That's her apartment building two four eight six venice boulevard in l. a. Can you talk about her for a couple minutes. Give her audience and idea who. She was. Absolutely margaret was such a beautiful person Both inside and out She loved people or one of the reasons why she even went into journalism. In the first place was smart she was finding and she was caring as she had a great work ethic. I mean she worked with our family. We started a scholarship fund to help Inner city children wanted to go to college Margaret played a very roles very instrumental in helping to get that going. She always gave back to the community. And i mean she was just a loving hardworking person. She was my little sister. So this is very near and dear to my heart and to see her grow up and become the woman that she that she was to to go out to la You know We're originally from the midwest. As you mentioned i i live at the dc area now but we all grew up in milwaukee wisconsin and for her to strike out and to go and pursue her dreams. Ambitions like so many of us do She was somebody who who was very low and very well liked and you can see box social media and so many of her news clips as as as she did her profession she. She had a love for people in the love for life and You know just a a great light has gone out. Are you familiar with the marci's law in the marcy law attorneys that work with families who have Situations like this. Because i don't personally know. Peter what the possible jail time could be for this man and i don't know if you've learned that because you saying that they are pursuing probation. Do you know if he could get you know under the under the laws that they were actually carried out by this day. Da which they rarely are he has prosecutorial discretion they call it what the guidelines could be for this man to get jail time and an index. And that's very troubling. it's it's my understanding. i think it's about four years And and that's you know that's what they chose to charge To to kill someone. But that's that's another Conversation for another time That's my understanding. We sent over eighty letters to the district attorney's office. It's our understanding that that's their policy to offer probation to a- anyone who is eligible and i'm trying to figure out how you can be eligible for probation after after killing someone showing such a a just no disregard for for human life and Again to be able to kill someone to keep going to have to be you know tracked down by the police to find out that he you know. He has no insurance My understanding They'll license And i mean what is what is really going on our chief justice quences here hit run considered very to tell you know maybe had no criminal record. They're going to say he didn't have any Know what he did is self evident and he ran away from it and he had no insurance he had no license and all that stuff itself evident that he belongs in in in prison for years. And peter you said you don't know whether or not he was drinking or drug at the time when we weren't we haven't got any information i mean i. I don't know how you can literally run somebody over not even stop or care. I mean you know to to try to render aid to call nine one one or or something but to keep going here. We don't know anything so he could have been on anything at the time You know but we. We haven't been given any information and it's been very troubling. It has been very stressful as heartbreaking. That we just want accountability. You know nothing. No amount of jail. Time could bring margo back and we know that this is not an eye for an eye of situation but there does need to be accountability and there does need to be justice we. We can't live with a world where people could kill Individuals and getting no no bail and and and you know a probation and just say hey you know. Don't do it again. I mean that's that's not the kind of world. I don't think any of us want to live in now Th they're just been so many stops along the way where you know It it's proved that there needs to be some real accountability here. I tell you what we're gonna do you stay on hold. We do have to go. But we're gonna have our producer. Ray put you in touch with the former la county da. Steve cooley. i don't know if you've heard of him but he had the job before this current. Da and he might be able to give you help with some of the martial law attorneys that work on. They've been very busy since george. Gascon that because your family has rights they do under marci's law your family has rights involving Being a victim of a crime and they should be talking to you and informing you about this process. da's office ain't doing these days for victims and their families. They don't care all right. I in touch with us. We're gonna put you on. Hold yeah you talk to ray. We'd like to get you back on to the future and see where this is headed. That is the reverend peter span. He's the older brother of woman by the name of margot who was killed in a hit and run in march in los angeles and the family's not happy because the da's office led by george guests. Go his saying no jail time. We're gonna prove we're going to pursue probation for this man. More coming out other reasons for the recall john and ken. Kfi john. ken show john kobylt. Ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on. The iheartradio app handled back on monday morning. Gary and shannon back on at ten o'clock also monday morning the voice line returns tomorrow so one of your final reminders to leave a message at one eight seven seven moist eighty six one eight seven seven six six four seven eight eight six. Well we just got this story. Courtesy of katie grimes at california globe dot com less than forty. And i think the precise number in the story is thirty. Six recall newsom signatures were rescinded. Statewide in case. You didn't follow this. This is one of the processes we have to go through before we get to vote on recalling gavin newsom from office. There is a thirty day window for people to petition to remove their signatures on the petitions to recall gavin newsom. I believe that thirty day period expired and the final Rhymes is the final total then thirty annex people she She cites susan. Walsh a senior volunteer with the recall gavin. Twenty twenty campaign. They contacted every counting election official in the state. June eighth deadline so the deadline was a couple of days ago and they asked how many recall petition signers remove their names and they were told when they tallied it up thirty-six period full stop. Yeah you're not kidding. Thirty six collected like two million signatures collected two point. One million one point seven million were validated as being uh a qualified right and out of one million seven hundred nineteen thousand nine hundred and forty-three three total validated signatures. Thirty six people one of their signature back. And it's veve in funnier about this. They had some organization that was led by the former state. Senator don pirata if you remember that name called california sos they were supposed to go out and work hard at getting people. To remove their signal petitions thing harvested thirty six people they. He is a pompous oath. Oh i know that they didn't do any. Why would you waste your time. That was just to get cheap stories in the left wing newspapers. That's all just to have all looks like a lot of newsom. People anti changing their mind. Oh yeah yeah. They can send their signature. It's just to create a lot a lot of a kicking up mud into the air. Don't think there's anything they just put out a news release. Why would you waste your time you would. You would have to get about two hundred and twenty thousand people to their to rescind their signatures. How could you possibly do that. Would have with vine them. They didn't understand. Recall who cement. But you have to find them. You'd have to have a staff and a budget large enough to locate two hundred and twenty thousand people call them knock on their door and convince them that They did the wrong thing. That's not possible. That's not physically possible to do. Did they have access to the petitions. Were names and addresses are available that they couldn't do that. I don't. I don't know i don't know but it's the only way you could do it because then you just have to get the phone numbers in call. People say hey. Most people pay no attention to the news right. They certainly don't know an esoteric. Detail like rescinded signature on a petition period full stop. There's no way you're getting two hundred and twenty thousand people by the way to do. The counties would not provide the numbers including la county alameda. County san bernardino county mercedes' stanislas would not because of the number of rescinded signatures to the to the organization. It's a waste of time. This orange. one signature rescinded. Who is who is the one guy in orange orange county orange county santa clara safe thing one signature stanislas county told. This woman did the research that we have until june twenty second to report for senate signature as well no deadlines june eighth. That probably pretty clear on the record. Highest is total with fresno county with ten ventura county had five lot of sun in fresno people out in hot aaron and figure out what they're a lot of turkey in san francisco four and this came from. That's stupid dope. Josh newman was. He got recalled They they democrats got so upset. They passed the law to delay re recalls by another month. And it's really. It's really to put together fund raising. Its two opposition research. It's it's to file a legal cases if they think there's some aberration that they could exploit but they needed a cover to justify the months delay so they created this fake. We're gonna look for people to rescind their signatures once again. The media takes this stuff literally. You don't take this stuff literally. Look as to why they would wanna months. Delay slow the momentum to put out a story that all. I'm sure there's hundreds of thousands of people that now that they signed a petition because california's on the right path now the subtly change the dynamic of the race. Because you're still talking about moving this election up because they think that newsom has this thing. Beat although the cox people john cox's people put at poulton. And i don't know how much i can trust. Did you see this show for all. That were knocked. We're not partisans. We just know incompetence and idiocy when we see it and we're singing gavin newsom. It has to be removed. But the john cox people are claiming that according to their polling data that the The recall passes and in fact they have it in forty nine to forty six percent among the likeliest voters among the likeliest. I don't know what that means. It says all voters forty four percent. Yes fifty percent. No but among likely voters forty nine percent yes forty six percent no and they were the number from eight hundred to six hundred eighty four so i guess they decided that one hundred sixteen people were probably not gonna vote. Yeah i not sure what that means. i'd. I'd i'd want to see the whole readout and isn't expected the no party preference people very close. They have it in this poll at forty five percent. Yes forty eight percent now but he seems to be the leading candidate because he's got the best name recognition. Yeah among all voters and likely voters he's got eighteen percent who second in this poll. Tony villar announced. He's always learning isn't he. He's he's caitlyn jenner's really bringing up the rear you see. She went on the view. Today is the point of that. I don't understand the views so she can argue with joy behar seriously caboose advising her campaign. That is a total waste of time. Yeah it is what be goldberg. And joy behar. Apparently she's a friend of whoopi. The most inconsequential peed people imaginable. Their cartoon characters their ridiculous ridiculous people. Why would you waste anytime. you're not gonna get any votes. Imagine the kind of person who spends their morning watching. Whoopi goldberg joy. Behar i think about who must be watching that crap people that can't move out of their chair and don't have to change the remote channel people's were unemployable in the post office. Throw them out. We got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt. Ken chiampou kfi am six. Forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Go ahead oh right. Handle is back monday morning.

I was ten miles from the nursing home where people are dying by the dust off. He's not coming in the studio tonight then probably not identical to tell him you have a cold yet. Tell everybody because then nobody will come in here. This is great. i guess what. It's the return of jeffrey toobin. Used i love this last fall. He was on a zoom call with colleagues at the new yorker magazine. They were doing an election simulation. Although you could call it an erection stimulus. He was caught pledging himself by other participants on the apparently thought he was on another zoom. Call when it's not clear. He was fired by the new yorker. But cnn just put him on leave so he made his return today. Of course there'd be taken back. let's play some of the audio. It's amazing and i haven't heard this yet. He actually goes back on cnn to discuss being caught masturbating. Well i think everyone thought we can't let the elephant in the room go on notice. People do a history about why you've been. I don't really listen to quote jay. Leno what the hell rethinking well. Obviously i wasn't thinking very well or very much and It was something that was inexplicable to me. I think one point. I wouldn't exactly say in my defense because nothing is really in my defense. I didn't think i was on the call. I didn't think other people could see me that you had turned off your camera wrecked. I thought that i had turned off the zoom call. Now that's not a defense. This was deeply moronic and indefensible. But i mean that that is part of that that is part of the story And i have spent the seven subsequent months miserable months in my life. I can certainly confess trying to be a better person in therapy trying to do some public service foodbank which i certainly do own book about the oklahoma city bombing but i am trying to become the kinda person that people can trust again. That is that emblematic of our era. Why the hell you talking about. Well i just go into a food. Is that got to do with the food bank. I'm pretty tech stupid. But even i know when you're on zoom you touch the screen and has a little red thing that comes down and says leave meeting all right and you hit it to leave meeting. I mean it's not that hard to do. He thought he turned off all really but why is he masturbating in his office in office chair in his. It is closed there. He's easy he's not dead talking about the election with the new yorker colleagues. Got him excited. Yeah is there anything more insufferable than with all those new yorker magazine weenies battling eighteen year old sixty one k sixty one. It's like the the issue is not that he forgot to turn off the zoom camera. It's like what are you doing. This is the middle of the day. You're dressed for work. You're in an office chair. I pleasure themselves at all times but not in that setting. I don't think he should lose his job over this. It's embarrassing but really. I don't wanna shake his hand. He worked at a food. Bank just makes me wonder it's like is this what he did all. He did this in the car. I did it in. The restaurants are men do is he. That worked up. Some men are ready. Who is it. Who's on that zoom call. Got him going. There was the new yorker staff is a few women because they're the ones. That's what i'm saying. I think he's doing must have been somebody liked. I thought initially he was on two calls at once and thought he turned off the first he was performing for somebody on the second. It's not yeah. What was the second one bay. Somebody shares down. I don't get the food banks. That phone sex. What is this doing public service i. It's not a crime plug. He's crazy tweet. Got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi debra mark has news kfi am six forty.

John & Ken Show Hour 4 (06/24)

"Roll we'll just dissimilar to the direction of the twenty first century. The public outrage. We need to use science and dating order to address public safety. Violent crime data signed flawed. Your data and your fire danger to the community of county. We are very very concerned about its taller. Hands public safety. I am absolutely outraged at that. The throne implementing laws of his own personal choice which we voted the. We've been so in a way that it's much more physically and socially responsible that only be breaking the law a. b. is not doing what he is supposed to the district attorney and added perpective victim. I truly believe that two years in the wrong teach should have been a public defender. He voted in can be voted out celebrating us going home on his gaskin. Crime is on a historic low in the nation's story. Closing save on the recall of la county district attorney. George gas gone jogging. Welcome kfi am. Six forty john and ken show. We were live everywhere in the iheart radio app and another story about the la county district. Attorney george gascon. Who of course is facing a recall. We updated you yesterday. They've already collected sixty thousand signatures. Although the goal is much more than that. It's a really good start. Have a tough time frame on this. Only a few more months to get to near six hundred thousand signatures if you're in. La county registered voter. Goater recall george. Gaskin dot com. It's g. a. s. c. o. n. We have built up the reasons why over these many months. It seems like every day or every other day. There's another story. This one concerns gas going going after police officers who were involved in shootings and ending to the story. He's setting up a special panel to lake to take a look cases involving police officers and deadly shootings and this would of course include pass cases where gascoyne of course was put into office with the help of many anti police activists. All part of last year's defunding the police movement which apparently has died a resounding death but of course it was really a big story last year and he got elected in november riding on the coattails of that anti police movement in. La county with a suspiciously high turnout but anyway let's bring on former los angeles county district attorney. Steve cooley to talk about what gas gone is planning to do. It's a sixteen member committee which is called. The factual analysis citizen consulting team allegedly community members activists scholars civil rights attorneys and former police chiefs to take a look into these cases. Steve welcome back to the show. Thank you sir. Really appreciate it. Yeah i saw write off. Did you mention this. La daily news story has not been too happy with this effort by gas going. Can you explain to listers. what's going on here. No reasonable person should be happy with this. Latest foray of george gas gone into abandoning his duties as la county. What he's done is he's put together in the collection of really Rebels and revolutionaries ideologues people own elk We're going to be basically delegated the responsibility trying to figure out these officer involved shootings that have already been closed some time ago and then to add misery to the situation he's gonna have law students from uc irvine and usc review those cases selected by the fact committee to see it. They should be filed. What can go wrong with astronaut. Mario give me a break. He is looking to go after cops. The this setup facts and law students is nothing more than cover so when he improperly indicts police officers he can say well my advisory panel Told me to do so. And we had checked out by these really brilliant law students. Come on jackie lacey when i was. Da and before me skilled trained lawyers with lots of experience in prosecution who have tried cases the no the evidence code the no the case law the no the statutes. They were the ones who made those very tough decisions. This just shows. He doesn't know what he's doing is very consistent with the guy that's never tried a case never filed a case and quite frankly wouldn't know what side of the courtroom to sit on. I mean he was san francisco. Da they didn't do anything like this when he was there. Did he know he messed them. Up in other ways but he has taken his radical approach to abandoning prosecutorial duties to a new level los angeles. What he's doing is really alice in wonderland time And he is like He keeps coming up with something else. That stuns anyone who's a professional in the criminal justice system judges prosecutors probably a lot of defense attorneys law enforcement officers and obviously John and kim. How far back do you think he's going to go with this. I mean how many police officers under inquiry with this panel it probably. It's probably hundreds of cases because he's staked out a very long period of time. He has said he wants to go back to every officer involved shooting back in two thousand twelve when jackie lacey took office and she was in office eight years. That is many many many cases that he's brought into this review process and the interesting thing is Have heard people inside the office that he is so enamored of prosecuting police officers. He set a quota system. He wants to filings against police officers. Every quarter during his term in office he can't do quota systems traffic tickets. Leave alone filing felonies. Criminal charges against Law enforcement officers. This is nutty. I made a joke of a few weeks after he took office. I said the only people he's going to prosecute will probably be cops because that's what the people that got him into office want him to do but it sounds. We know. he's not prosecuting misdemeanors at all. Thirteen categories of misdemeanors and seventy eight of the eighty. Eight cities you're not prosecuting. Those where he should be prosecuting them. he's Functionally not prosecuting a lot of the felonies. Because he's reducing the charges to the bare minimum by eliminating enhancements. And he's not doing his job Up the pearl earrings. Because he's not there with the victims. He's abandoned them So yeah i find it hard to figure out what he is doing. Da system of being da. You heard the story the other day that he's got a former public defender working in his office and she's actually working with the murderer in the murderers mother to try to get. The young man had a prison. That's that's the lisa blair and she is a long-term public defender She was the public defenders expert in juvenile. She's now in charge of the seventy one transfer cases jackie lacey. Her office decided to transfer These brutal cases to adult cohort of eligible defendants. And he's she's in charge of making sure they don't go to juvenile. You don't go to adult court. This is this'll lisa blair. Listen to this longtime public defender Has her own ideology in terms of juvenile law. Probably expert in a sense. And that way. When fairfax was burning being looted and officers were being attacked. Live on her instagram thing and then she goes on to say we must destroy before we rebuild Does that sound like revolutionary stuff. What the hell is she doing in the da's office at a high level executive position. You know like you said this is like going down the rabbit hole. It's like a universe you can't believe is happening. It's the opposite parallel evil universe. It's hard to believe. I the only thing they say steve to defend what they're doing is that guys like you and jackie lacey. Took police union money so you were not impartial when it come to investigating police officer shootings. I think if i got police union money it was probably less than one tenth of one percent. I got money from people to believe. In having a justice system that worked was accurate and was fair and it was a broad base of of citizens. That got me into office. When i was there for twelve years and did pretty darn good. Jackie was there for eight years. Did pretty darn good. This guy was there for two minutes and started destroying the system. He is a wrecking ball for the criminal. Justice system. well. It looks like the signature gathering off to a pretty good start with sixty thousand signatures and just a couple of weeks. So you're optimistic. We're gonna we're gonna hit that goal it is. is very daunting but recall. George gas going dot com and that web site is a great resource to get petitions getting truncheons. And that's how we're gonna do it. I guarantee you if we get this guy up for recall vote. He is gone. The nightmare for los angeles county's justice system and it's and public safety is going to end so let's get those signatures. Let's get him in. Let's qualifying for recall. Let's get rid of them. I steve good to talk to you. Get appreciated bank accounts by former la county district attorney steve cooley on to talk about one of his successors which is la. County district attorney. George gascon who faces a recall. That recall george. Gaskin dot com. And it's about this panel that he is just assigned the task of going after police officers. Who have been involved in shootings going back to twenty twelve to reinvestigate the case to see if we and you know they. They come back empty. They probably have to come back with some officers and steven mentioned quota. Wants you to come up with a couple of officers a week that we can charge with something more coming up on. John and ken show on. Kfi kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. The voice line is tomorrow right at this very time so there are still little room for more calls. You never know what might come in. Leave a voicemail. One eight seven. Seven moist eighty six one. Eight seven seven six six four seven eight six play. Those calls at five twenty and five fifty tomorrow. is it much new on the terrible story of south florida today. The condo collapse in a community outside of miami one of the towers and these condo buildings are about twelve stories. High just completely almost completely collapsed. Just dropped one thirty in the morning. Officially one news outlet says three people have been declared dead others are still holding to one dead. There are about thirty seven people who were rescued but the big story is the ninety nine people upwards of ninety nine people are still missing and they're working hard trying to carefully search through the rubble at this condo complex because things are not stable and their concerns about the other condo towers This was one wing of this twelve storey condo tower complex and it's a beach area and there's reports that Some of measured think that that was kind of sinking. If that's what happened. I i don't know i mean. Structurally is a forty year old building which was just going through a re certification process right. Now which is only required by florida law every forty years. So and now we move over to debra mark for her. Most exciting story of the day showed. I didn't even say anything. She knows what it is. It's the cal yes. She's very excited to report that. The cows that escaped from the pico rivera slaughterhouse. Most of them were recaptured. One was on the lam. He was found in a park five miles away but the exciting news is go ahead. That cow is to a sanctuary. And do we talk about that yesterday. You said well what do you what do you. What do you think should happen to these. Cows said they should go sanctuary. Would you want that to happen to all slaughterhouse cows but this story is not going to happen. I know but you know what shave just one cow. Yes baby steps you say that there are those other cows that were captured to also be taken. Thanks ury it's a songwriter. Diane warren has done a number of hits. He's been around a long time. Who apparently stepped forward with a way to get this particular Ah bovine thanks diane. To a sanctuary in acton and the city manager a pico. Rivera says they're talking to the meat processing plant about getting off. Forty of them actually was thirty nine. They did kill one. Deputy shot one dead because it was attacking family to get the rest of them. And how do they know which is which in words the took them back into the slaughterhouse. I'm sure they're punished. Probably a corner do you think. Don't you think their hamburger by now some of them. Yeah unfortunately i do. They really went through the grinder. I'm sure those those people that run the slaughterhouse. Were pretty ticked off that these guys got punished as your punishment some places they have just put you in isolation right at a slaughterhouse. Go to the front of the line. I don't know this is all of the meat they had there was just part of it. I don't know how i've not heard of this. I know there's a lot of slaughterhouses in that region of la county. we heard about protests before. And i i still wouldn't be surprised if some activist is the one that got that gate accidentally unlocked just walked right out. I mean i wouldn't be surprised if if that goes on. I wouldn't be surprised if it happens again somewhere else. Yeah i mean. I guess it could be good. Pr for the meat processing company to allow this particular group of this is an asset. I don't ever see things. Cost the slaughterhouse to acquire these and then tournament to meet the cell. So i doubt they would be doing this for free. I would assume that maybe there would be some kind of incentive if if they do allow these thirty nine other cows to go off to a sanctuary and you promise when you go to the sanctuary love to read to them. Sure or something. I'll go and pet them. Only you'll get the horns all right coming up next with everything else. Going on governor gruesome unless say that can remember which everything else going on. I did say that. Yeah you're right everything that's going to be specific. Yeah well it's the gas tax come next week to be precise it's going to be next thursday. They are raising the gas tax in california again. We are the highest in the nation. We knew this was going to happen. Only because we couldn't stop the legislature from voting on raising your gas taxes for what who knows Anyway we're going to talk to a legislator from California coming up next about what should really be going on to protest this. John and ken show and kfi catch show. John kobylt ken chiampou. John will be back next week. he's got week off. We're live on the iheartradio. app recalled. Newsom it's officially qualified but the ballot forty three people rescinded their signatures. I i love that number. After a month of work by former state. Senator don pirata to get people to stop the steel. They were able to get forty three people at of what one point seven million in their signatures Anyway also if you haven't rented cap radio as a story on gavin newsom lying about fire prevention efforts in the amount of acreage that was actually subject to fire prevention techniques. He put out a press release bragging about it. Cap radio did little investigating and found out that the actual acreage was only thirteen percent of the amount that he claimed. Also coming up in the news. Next thursday your gas prices are going up automatically on july. One california's excise tax on a gallon of gasoline is going to rise to fifty one point one sense what a time for it. We are seeing an incredible run up in gas prices highest level in nearly sixty years. You're not imagining. It is approaching five dollars a gallon in many places. Republicans in the state senate or calling for a gas tax holiday. We'll find out what that is. Now from state. Senator brian jones From down there in san diego county. The area around santee senator jones. Welcome to the show after a kit. Kat it's a pleasure to be with you. Thanks for covering this important issue for all californians explain to people just how bad it is with gas prices in california if you could gas taxes in california or just too damn high. That's the problem and you. You talked about five dollars almost five dollars a gallon. I represent some of the desert communities down here in san diego county and it is five dollars a gallon already and we're going to be seeing that statewide Very soon a across the state five dollars a gallon is gonna be normal weird. Is this a gas tax increase. Come from just tell people who are. i mean. They're probably not even going to notice it but the the prices rising the way they are Watch another whatever since they're gonna slap on it comes alive i but this is from a bill from years ago right. Yeah yeah this is. This is the taxes the this in addition to the sales tax that california puts on Gasoline californians pay a one of the highest not the highest overall tax rate on gasoline in the country. And you know you look at a gas. Prices are going up all over the country but in some places. We're two dollars more than other parts of the country and so in a couple of weeks. The total excise taxes are going to be fifty one cents. Republicans in the senate are have come to the table where the common sense You know normal solution to this problem. And that is. Let's take some of the seventy six billion dollar surplus that's already to california taxpayers money and less stops. Let's do a one year break down the excise tax. Let's take one year and eliminate the excise tax lower gasoline by fifty one cents a gallon and back fill that with the surplus that we already have and the governor. He's already given away millions of dollars to people who are getting vaccinated. Why don't give back that money to every californian when they fill up their guesting. Yeah i mean you're right. He's been giving away so much money over the last several weeks. Why not do something that could impact everybody and significantly it says in the press. Release from you guys. The average family of four pays as much as eight hundred dollars in gas taxes. A year just to get. What would that mean to the average california home if they can have eight hundred dollars back into their budget you know maybe they wanna take vacations This summer eight hundred dollars if you do a station that that's a. That's a lot of money towards the station in california. There's lots of great things to do in california. That's a great places to go and california. That eight hundred dollars is make a difference. Maybe they've got some credit card debt leftover from the cogan before they were able to go back to work at eight hundred dollars would go towards paying off that credit card debt. That's why are our democrat. Leaders in california are so outta touch with everyday californians that they don't even recognize the governor doesn't even recognize and the democrat leaders in both the house and the senate. How much of a difference eight hundred dollars makes to the average california family. Yeah you gotta believe that. Some of it is the fact that they just don't like people driving cars and using gas so they're happy while they'd go up can they're actually getting pressure. From the environmental side of their party the far left environmental Wackos for lack of a better term are are are pushing them. Yeah they want ten dollars. Gallon gasoline and californians. Your listeners need to understand that the democrat leadership is getting pressure from bay area liberals and other places even outside of california to drive up the price of gasoline as much as possible to force us into electric cars to force us into solar to forces. Actually what they wanna do. Candidates forces into public transportation and have everybody on a bus a train or trolley and that have us rely on that for our main source of transportation in this gas tax money. I mean we've talked about this on the show. There was a story recently. I mean most people do not see the effect of it. It's supposed to go to fixing the roads. I don't think anybody's not coming from this. Sp one senate bill one from a few years back. I don't think anybody's noticing a big change in the row in the state especially not in your area. I recently wrote my motorcycle through. La and I was very disappointed. Here is actually dangerous. I'm not sure i'll do it again. That's hard ride a motorcycle in la. Be a bumper. Well i try to time it. Right when you're when the traffic's not too heavy but that's hard to do to. You know you kind of have an in here. Because i'm looking at a story. We're number of democratic. Legislators are very sympathetic. To what you're talking about that this comes down really hard on their poor and working class constituents and that's an interesting commentary that you just made right there because the democrat is so many of the democrats and i would say even more than half of them or at least enough of them if they would call less with us we could get over the twenty one mark in the senate and the forty one vote mark in the assembly to make some positive changes for all californians. But they're so constricted by their party politics that they're not allowed to have an independent thought they can. They can think it and they can save in the hallway. They just can't vote for it in committee and they can't vote for it on the floor of the senate on the floor of the assembly. We need to all of your listeners. Need to call their democrat. Legislators their senators and their assembly members and tell them to support the republican excise tax holiday. Yeah reading the story. A lot of these democrats. I'm talking about from the central valley as you mentioned before sacramento's ruled by this bay area constituency of democrats a correct correct. It is but and i will tell you can in the la area. There's several Democrat legislators assembly members and senators. That i personally have worked with and can work with the like. You said are sympathetic to this issue. They just need to hear from their can. They need to hear more from their constituents than they're hearing from the bay area legislators and the bay area's special interests that are promoting and pushing this additional excise tax and pushing the constraints of the gasoline market in california. Two pleasure talking to you. Senator brian jones. Thanks for coming on. Thank you thanks for covering it and glad to help out anytime state senator bryan from santee down in san diego county the rural area of san diego county and He and a whole bunch of other. Well there's not a lot. Senate republicans in sacramento calling for a gas tax holiday because come next thursday gas prices if they aren't already climbing supposedly they're climbing because the economy's recovering so the demand has gone up. Although i remember months ago before the economy was recovering i started to see the prices. Go up but now. It's escalating at a pace which is hitting five dollars a gallon. In many places as i mentioned the highest level in nearly six years he would like the sacramento politicians. That run things to look around and say we got this big surplus when we give people a gas tax holiday for a while. That's what the senate republicans are asking them to do all right when we come back. We're going to take a little trip to biden. Ville see what came up today. From joe biden esteemed president john and ken show on. Kfi formally welcome you to the rest home of old joe. Welcome to bite unveil everyone all created by go. You know you you know. We have to come together. That's why running. I'm running as a proud democrat for the senate plays you took to curse today for the same reason i was a democratic caucus. I'll later effective strategy to mobilize oppressor. Donald trump speaks clearly rocking. I think it's a right for people have added terms. Dog freeze pony. Show with and by the way jill. I've always enjoy seeing christopher chiasson. I should say together on the trail for secretary of health and education. I nominated hobby are career president harrison. I took a virtual tour vaccination center in arizona. My my guy who runs out here now to give you a tour of biden. Your extended stay ears. John it's a pleasant way to end the show. Birds sunshine a nice afternoon. Joe biden made a couple of appearances today. The first one he made was to some sort of out of nowhere press conference at the white house and of course you want to celebrate the deal. They have reached for this one point two trillion dollar infrastructure. I is print the money. Does that matter anymore. But apparently when he was talking to reporters it says several times he hunched over the left. Turn and forcefully whispered to reporters some of which looked at each other quizzically. Like didn't really understand. I can see a photo of binded leading over. i noticed. He did this before with one of his covid. Nineteen statements he made. He has this tendency when he wants you to believe that. He's really sincere and this is really important. I'm going to whisper to make my point. So we have a little example of what we're talking about from today's press conference point nine trillion dollars so far they're going to beginning checks in the mail that are consequential. The environment lor since creepy is for us. Employees bargaining chip. Now the first one. You hear that again. That was that was even more bizarre than sometimes. When i see these stories and yeah. They're coming from more conservative right. We met sites and they're probably exaggerating. Play that again. One point millar. I believe they're going to beginning checks in the mail that are consequential. The wrote the bill but on the environment. Yeah there it is more. I believe this is an increase. But he sounds like he's bargaining chip. Now it's not a soft whisper. it's kind of a. It says forceful He was asked about additional relief for families. That's the first part you heard. There was a pbs reporter. And that's what he says. I got them one point. Nine billion of relief so far the going to be eating checks in the mail that are consequential this week for their child care i. Nobody could explain why he did this. It didn't happen the whole press conference but it happened certain times. Was he just trying to be playful or is he really out to lunch dinner breakfast tonight. Time all right time for you. Know who tim conway dogs all right. Very good patras is coming on tonight. At seven o'clock we'll chat with him and also that horrible horrible accident in miami with that apart again the condo collapse. I guess there's one hundred thirty six units in that place and their high. Even though that buildings old nineteen eighty-one they're really high. End places inside. Oh i wondered. If i mean there's a lot of condos dozen whole miami area and not all luxury so these from about six hundred eight hundred which is for a lot of money for you know you think they were renters. We don't know i don't know. They said they were mostly older. People and young couples just starting out Still missing oh man. Becky magin at one thirty. Everyone's sleeping you know thinking You know. I made it through another day my place and then bang newport beach long. Beach are bracing for flooding tonight. I guess nine twenty is going to be hide. No tropical showers next week in tropical thunder. That's what i heard. I like pickle here in in burbank. Right here in the valley. I think it was a forecast. For the entire california region there could be tropical thunder a tropical shower. I like it man. I love it right. I especially in the summer. When it's hot that florida you spent your spending is spent time in florida. Mytalk slit their retirement. Walk outside and drops the rain every day every day. The big clouds who committed but it only it only thunders. In and rains for a while right. Yeah right now goes away. Moves on a release in the humidity. Yes in ohio man in ohio you could.

We've had him on a number of times over the years and he's gonna explain this because this is a too shocking to comprehend here. Michael how are you good gentlemen. Well well is this standard something about emergency regulations allowing this. What is this do you know. Well it's it's it's it's a combination of ingredients here Jerry brown's prop fifty seven Which passed in two thousand sixteen gave the department of corrections Almost unlimited authority to determine when inmates under their control can be released. Now as you know. The governor is in charge of the department of corrections. He can fire the head of corrections tomorrow if he doesn't do what he wants. So when we heard these emergency regulations announced on saturday which is kind of like news dump. Don't you think We're going holy cow. this is. This is newsom taking advantage of jerry. Brown's profit fifty seven to empty out the prisons and because they're using emergency regulations. It doesn't go through the regular process that it would go through which takes about a year for the public comment because obviously letting out seventy six thousand criminals sixty. Some thousand that are violent has an impact on the public and they should have a say about it but they use the emergency a part of this to get around that so this is clearly a gas decision are now i mean i knew some decision force this emergency. That's the question I would expect there will be some legal action on this. And what is the emergency will be the main question. What are we talking about here. Why can't we do this under the regular process. What is the legal action well The most likely effort would be a restraining order and I think da's will probably be the ones moving on that. And i've heard through the grapevine that that process has already begun and we actually did a little research on it today. So it's it looks like it's possible that will happen relatively quickly. They would have the legal standing to go to a judge and ask for. According to our legal director of standing is not the issue for. Da's they should be they should be able to do that The question is does. The governor have a free hand to nor the regular process and Have his corrections department. Start cutting the sentences and half for all of these guys you know. Good time is a joke. You get the good time as soon as you get your sentence so if you get eight years and you walk into san quentin you're serving four and you have to lose the four by other inmates guards or running scams against the dvd or any thousand and other things and then if you're still good after a while they'll give you that back so the the the idea that This is really a good behavior. Thing is is a sick joke anybody in corrections that isn't in the leadership and getting paid to lie. We'll tell you that you know every inmate in the prison get some kind of a program so that he can get his good time. I mean i'm looking at a story here. Michael that said we had one hundred sixty thousand inmates fifteen years ago we know right before the pandemic of one hundred and seventeen thousand but they release twenty one thousand more. We're down somewhere in the neighborhood of ninety. Five thousand inmates now. Seventy six thousand could be eligible for early release. This really is literally emptying the prisons. Yeah it's a it's a it's a and it's clearly a political decision to think about it. The governor has decided that his recall can be reduced. The pressure to get him. Rico would be reduced by letting out seven seventy thousand inmates. He thinks the public supports. That is going to happen. Why would he do this. After the recall has started. Why would you release seventy six thousand prisoners or are we completely misreading because we got crimewave out of this this is gonna kill him in the regal is most of the people really want to empty the prisons. Well that's it it's It's a let's let's look at it this way. You take callers all day long and you know other guys in talk radio to do the same thing everybody you hear. So we've got too much crime and california does we've had crime increases virtually every year since realignment started and and it really accelerated last year Because the police were backing off and so under that environment and already for the first quarter of this year los angeles is a murders are up seventy three percent. I'm sure you guys have talked about it. So this is the time to release hard violent criminals. The the news report associated press one. I'm looking at said. Twenty twenty thousand. Inmates who are serving life sentences with the possibility of parole can get released. Yeah and so these are. These guys are really violent. Criminals aren't they. Oh you bet you don't get a life sentence. A life sentence includes murder. If it's if it's a you know Second degree murder with aggravation Or repeated crimes. Maybe your pop for your third And third strikes or life without With with the possibility of parole. So you've got a guy who's got violent priors you know a rape and a residential burglary with people inside and his third is maybe he just aggravated assault at somebody. So now he's eligible. He'd come on out This it's insane. It's it's what what's in the water at the state capital. But i'm glad i'm a few blocks away. I mean you guys follow this. Did you know this was coming No this was a surprise. They drop it on saturday right Pretty interesting i think. Our legal director was interviewed on friday afternoon by the reporter that covered this so this was a weekend. Drop how you drop things. You don't wanna get picked up. Unfortunately this is so outrageous that everybody's picking it up. It's on. John and ken believe there'll be a quick appeal on this somehow. I think there's gonna be a legal petition to Do you know do a writ to restrain this thing just to hang it up and it'll be a full blown trial where the da's and Newsome's people will come in and explain why this is a good idea actually going to the recall and one of his big issues is going to be releasing three quarters of the prisoners early. He owns this. He runs corrections. I know i can't owns it. I just you know it's your fascinated by so am i just can't figure it out because not only is it. Hardly dangerous to unleash. seventy-six thousand violent criminals early but then to actually run on a recall campaign with that. I lender whoever runs against them may crime the number one issue there out of their minds. This is the issue. So it's it's just remarkable. That's why i'm wondering does nuisance have some kind of secret research polling that. We're not aware of where much of the states idea. Yeah would approve this. I think he's getting research and information from gascon figured out how bad that is all right. Michael thanks for explaining it to us. My pleasure for the president of the court of justice legal foundation more coming up johnny ken. Kfi john. Ken show john kobylt ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Well we're still in shock trying to fathom this possibility that seventy six thousand state prison. Inmates are eligible for early release earlier than before. This did come from that. Evil prop fifty seven. It passed in two thousand sixteen. It was a big no one voter guide named the public safety and rehabilitation act. Yeah this is the one that jerry brown campaign for tirelessly insisting that sex offenders. Oh no no no. They're not covered by prop. It gave the department of corrections really. The governor total discretion on when to let people out early unless they have no pearl possibilities. And i imagine they're going to work around that eventually to but understand what's going on here. This is early. Release for seventy six thousand state. Inmates including violent felons and repeat felons right. Because all they have to do is earned their good behavior credits. Sixty thousand inmates convicted of violent crimes will get good behavior. Credits that will shorten their sentences by one third. And what this is too. This is what's really evil about this. This crowd like the torch. Gascon say we have to make prison a place where people actually learn to be better people when the release this is how they do it with their phony credit program. Most people know this say is phony. Well this phony. It's easy to get them and then they've you lose them. You can get them back easily because they want you out what we just had michael rush for it on. Who's an expert on this stuff. And he says if you get an eight year sentence soon as you walk into prison they take four years off right off the top halftime. No time right so what you have to is aggressively commit crimes in the prison in order to lose the four year credit that they gave you upon entrants those those sentences those eight year sentences are not eight year sentences their four year sentences. And then if you commit more crimes on the inside they'll tack on the extra time so they're pulling the wool over. The populations is here in california cash. Idir the legal director for the criminal justice legal foundation says effectively. Good behavior credits or just to give away. But they're gonna make the public feel like thanks to the media reporting this. Oh yeah well. They were model prisoners. Who learned their lessons. Don't worry they're coming out early. But you won't be in any danger because they exhibited good behavior in prison. I mean program. Look at this headline and most people only headlines. This is from channel five. California's releasing seventy six thousand inmates early including violent felons. No it's almost entirely violent felons. It's a lot of times. They only count you as violent if that was your latest crime. Here's the trick if you have a long criminal record that included violent offenses in the past but your most recent offense wasn't that violent. You're not a violent person. There's twenty thousand. Inmates who are serving life sentences with the possibility of pearl. So they're going to get out early. Then there's ten thousand inmates convicted of a second strike but the second strike is serious non violent but the first strike could be very violent nasty. So they're being. They're being classified as non violent offender. They're not it's what you said there. Last crime was not violent. Even the last crime and a lot of those non violent crimes. Actually are violent. They've just been classified by these jerks so that the time a story where we hear of somebody did something evil long violent criminal record but then sometimes you'll look back and say oh well that's two crimes back but i'm sure i'm sure in their minds. He was a reformed person the amount and then he bills. Somebody dishes gavin newsom here. This is entirely gavin newsom production. Yes because he could slowed down. Jerry brown's prop fifty seven beat. This there was no requirement. You release these people just a bunch of it says here and then the effective date was this saturday. May i right. And if it's going to need news was was not covered. Newsom never announced. He was going to do this. He didn't run on this. This is classic. This is like a little time bomb that was buried in the legislation. And this clause that was buried in prop fifty seven gave the governor the right to let three quarters of the population out early right and we didn't know that somebody took prop fifty-seven analyzed it and said oh this could be a gold mine to prison releases. So that's why it was in there to begin with. But they do this stuff incrementally i they get buried in a proposition. Then they bury the trigger mechanism in a budget bill that no one pays attention to then a little while after that on a saturday. The news is announced but this again so long term project. Whatever was written prompt fifty seven that passed in twenty fifteen. That was probably written several years before we got more coming up their patient john and ken. Kfi jonah ken show john kobylt and ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty five everywhere on the iheartradio app. Remember love for little cabin her coming up after eight o'clock we're going to talk to his mom. Wendy again gavin. Is the eight year old boy. Who in the summer of twenty twenty was attacked viciously by a very dangerous man. You wonder if this is one of the seventy six thousand inmates who my face released from state prison anyway. Gavin was just coming home from a pool party and he got viciously beaten on the street by this man who he did not know left him for dead. Fortunately gavin has survived. He's making a nice recovery. We'll talk to was mother. And she's gonna tell us about the defendant. The man that was arrested for this attack and his attempts at mental incompetency through the criminal justice system. Something which apparently. He's gotten away with many times before but keeps getting released to be on the streets and did this little gavin and again. There's a gofundme me for the ludwig six which we had on our webpage will bring it up again coming up after the news at five o clock. The southern california news group a reporter by the name of toni savedra writes mainly for the orange. County register. did a sunday story on. George gascoyne the la county is. This is center stage in the national revolution to reform the justice system. Some are saying they're looking at him as a bellwether. Because we have this going on in chicago philadelphia boston and we know san francisco. Put that crazy chess. Bodine up there and all the stuff. He's pulling these are the progressive prosecutors and yes so a lot of them got elected with the help of george soros groups. They are trying to change the criminal justice system they want more rehabilitation less punishment. You know well so less jail time. They'll be fine. They're gonna so they're gonna let out the seventy six thousand inmates out of the california prisons early and some cases a lot early. There's no rehabilitation for these people. They're just being let out. They got time credits which proves nothing. They've already let out sixty thousand prisoners of haven't got rehabilitated. They're living on the streets. That's what these homeless encampments are about. If you're wondering how. The homeless situation exploded so much part of it is. That's where the inmates weight because they had spent years in prison. They have felonies on their record and nobody was hiring during the pandemic anyway. What do you think they're gonna go. They have no money. They don't have a home so they go live in a homeless encampment and they start selling drugs i. I don't understand how people don't connect all that's going on here. Where do you think. Tens of thousand prisoners are going. Why do you think there's tens of thousands of more homeless on the streets in a short period of time so this movement to reform the criminal justice system being led by prosecutors like george gas goan and chesa bowdoin in san francisco is kind of explained in this article which is mostly on gascoyne but mentions those other people who does pop up in is deputy. Da jonah tommy. Who's been in our show and it's been an outspoken critic of all the moves george going is made with his directives and he said nationally. Now coming to a crossroads people have to decide if it's important to protect children communities or feel bad for people who do bad things i think. Progressives like chaos and they want chaos. He is right now to talk about. Been talking about this for months. Now you can trace this to the anarchist anarchists in portland all these. These black lives matter protesters. There is a well-funded movement and there's different branches. Poking out of the movement one of them is the protest marches. one of them is anarchy. In some of the city's one of them is the defunding. The police movement one of them is these prosecutors who are now dismantling the system. Just enjoy working the inside but remember they need cover stories so they spout out tired old cliches about rehabilitation. They're not interested in that because they don't do that. They dumped out. Tens of thousands of prisoners there was no rehabilitation process. Here if one even exists that works. That's another word today that we just been talking about tells you all you need to know the good behavior. Credit thing is a scam. But they're using it to get these guys out prisoner earlier. It's not rehab so this is like everything else. A tiny sliver of progressives woke people anarchists who use social media who used the regular media which has gone all woke to shout down and threatened. And billy you if you have an opposing view and the first thing shout racism right now that we've got a little these prisoners out because the disproportionately black to first thing gasco and says its first thing they all say. Because it's a shot you up. This does not survive a rational discussion. This is not survive intelligent analysis. They interviewed one insane. Person in the story. David meant shell a portland defense lawyer and activist in the progressive movement. Who said when you remove the fear the arguments for shorter prison terms. Make sense when you remove the fear you mean. The fear brought upon by releasing seventy six thousand dangerous inmates. It's just all of my head. Isn't this you see what they do. It's language manipulation gasco and says in his story. Fear sells reason. We are where we are political leaders who sell fear in other words. Oh look at you. You want people in prison. You're just fearful your irrational. You're responding emotionally. And then he says. Unfortunately there's a lot of racist language. Here we go. You're a racist your rack exactly so you don't have an argument so you have to shut up and if you don't shut up we'll keep calling you names and eventually will will publicly defame you. That's what we'll do. Listen to the rest of this quote from men shell when we keep people in prison till they're sixty seventy eighty. We're not paying their punishment. We're paying for our anger again trying to bring a motion into it. They're not letting out just people in their seventies and eighties. They're letting out three quarters of the current prisoners with doing some of the murders. We've talked about. Where young guys. yeah. I remember that guy that killed the two women. He could be out when he's in his thirties. Yeah so you sit. You see how they manipulate the argument. You see how badly the reporter rights to describe the argument he. Let's let's Let's this attorney. Get away with this idea. we're keeping people into their seventies and eighties. We're not punishing them. We're paying for our anger. That's the issue. Look at look when when releasing three quarters of the prisoners. They're not all senior citizens. Most of them are young to middle aged. But but again the writer doesn't explain that properly and besides that it's buried and on page four hundred thirty haven't heard this before. At the end of the story they're arguing again about the cost to incarcerate prisoners and saying couldn't that money be better spent on social programs to keep people out of jam. Oh there's there von know that the world who believe that they have all of these ideas to spend on social programs to keep people. It's like the crowd that tells us billions of dollars will be spent to keep people out of homeless to make you feel guilty. Most social programs don't work most social programs that employ people barack that's right we spent billions and billions of dollars social programs and we have record high homeless. We have record high crime right now. The social programs don't work. They're fake agencies that employ. Lots of people that good salaries who do no tangible work on the streets. That changes anybody's lives. But it makes you feel guilty. It they try to make you feel guilty by saying oh social programs. you're only for prisons. not social programs. what kind of a person are you. You see it's guilt. It's manipulation and it works on people. People are afraid of being shamed. We got more coming up. Progressives figured out the holy grail here on what. Human nature is like john and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt and ken. Chiampou kfi am six. Forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. A story we spent a lot of time talking about last summer and we were promised to continue to follow. It will come with an update after five o'clock at the attack on then seven year old boy by the name of gavin out in desert hot springs from a neighborhood pool party when he was viciously assaulted. His skull was fractured. It was left unconscious. The man that did this was a neighbor but the families didn't know each other so random thing he picked out this little boy to assault turns out. The attacker has quite a criminal history often. He's been declared mentally incompetent. Is that going to happen again if it does will. It mean he'll be released again. Wendy gavin's mother will join us at five. Oh five for an update on how her son is doing and for the criminal case against the attack anyone to say his name. This is so evil so awful and you can help out to. We'll refresh the go fund me for people who still want to contribute. It's time for an animal story. Debra mark mr animal stories can asking you the first question. Do you know the difference between a buffalo and bison i know there is a difference but new well bison or in north american europe buffalo basically found an african asian. Okay and you may have seen the water buffalo guests. The bighorns right. It's bisons that are in the news and it's not good. The federal government is inviting people to apply to kill bison and grand cash grand canyon national park. You can come and you can shoot them. There's too many the national park service. Okay but there has to. I mean we've had stories before you have to do. There has to be another way just inviting people to just you know these animals. I'm unfair john actually as an animal lover but he's very he loves to eat them logical about it. There's too many. What are you going to do well. It is too many they. They need to cut the heard from six hundred to two hundred because they're ripping up the environment there okay. Can you sterilize them. Instead of having people come in thank. You sterilize a. I don't know how to it in a way that somebody could don't want to give you a pocket knife you. That's just not my thing. I don't know how to do that. You're just to get the slice so sure. Do the bill trampled on comes to stampede. It's wrecking the water. The vegetation the soils the archaeological sites. See it's it there's just too many. Bison bison or not environmentalists rim actually. I was at the north room a for years ago very beautiful. You've never had a bison burger. No and and i'm not missing missing. How have you had a bicycle and it was delicious very good. Yes i think. I think i had bison turkey. There's a guy with standards. The ideal candidates will have no criminal history physically fit. Have firearm safety certification. Pass a marksmanship test and you have to supply your own weapon. The government's not giving you the gun to kill the vice so you get to take the bison home with you. I guess that's a good question. You want a in the story. What happened if you want. A summer's worth of bison barbecue. Just pose with a picture and send it to debra get lots of likes remember the american bison was nearly hunted into extinction back in the nineteenth century. That many of them left. I guess it's made a comeback well in this particular part of the of the grand canyon. They're all over yellowstone. I'm sure you guys have been to yellowstone. Yeah lots of snow we had to. We had to stop the car for the bison crossing. Yeah there's always an idiot that wants to selfie. It's one person a year gets attack. It's i don't. They want an up close selfie. I enjoy that. The bison just gonna stand there and say yeah. I'll be happy to post you. Notice there are fewer selfie stories. These days i think we're oversell fees endemic now. I think i think that that whole thing passed fed. The yeah somebody with a stick a couple of weeks ago. Been awhile since. I've seen the selfie. Stick yeah remember selfish. That was particularly holding out. And every time. I saw that i wanted to grab the stick and whack them over the head with it. There is a benefit to having a selfie. Stick though you would say that. I in fact i was away. I said to my husband. Let's bring the selfie stick. And of course he didn't bring the cell because my husband is six one. And i'm four eleven and three quarters right and when we try and take a picture together first of all. It looks ridiculous because his arm is trying to anyway. We needed a selfie stick. And we forgot. Oh that's for you coming up next. Wendy ludwig is coming back to the johnny. Ken show out in desert. Hot springs her then seven year old.

John & Ken Show Hour 4 (05/17)

"Rough justice system into directional twenty-first-century the public outraged by this. We need to use science to address public safety violent. Crime thing inside flawed. Your data and your client is dangerous. Tuesday community of the county. We are very very concerned about your safety. I am absolutely outraged at the zone. Feeling implementing laws of his own personal choice which we voted the way that it's much more fiscally and socially responsible that only be breaking the law but he is not doing what he is supposed to do as a district attorney and that is repetitive victim. I believe that two years in the wrong often teach should've been a public defender. He voted in can be voted out historic low indications of the story a bunch of baloney for an update on the retail of la county district. Attorney george gascon. John and ken. John kobylt ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Welcome everybody we're gonna be talking about now with regards to this horrific da and we're still waiting for the green light for them to start collecting signatures on petitions to affect a recall. Vote on george gas gone from office. We go back to two thousand sixteen. October fifth of two thousand sixteen in fact we reported heavily on this story at the time. An la county sheriff's sergeant by the name of steve owen. Three years old was responding to a burglary call in lancaster. He confronted the burglar who ended up shooting him not once but several times execution style stood over him and just executed them. And i had forgotten that this criminal then escaped in sergeant owens police car and then Went to a nearby home and held a couple of teenagers hostage for a while and then eventually gave himself up the story today. Is that because la county district attorney. George gascon did not want to pursue the death penalty. There has been a deal. Made between the defendant is name is trenton trevan lavelle. He had two prior convictions on parole at the time of the killing. It's a plea deal where he will be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. But as we know some governor could issue some sort of clemency which would give this guy the chance at parole sometime in the future. We had hoped to speak to tania. Owen today sergeant owens widow but apparently she still pretty worked up over this. We're gonna be talking to the former. La county district. Attorney steve. cooley. I he and others marci's law attorneys and other investigators the sheriff's department have been assisting the owen family with this case. We also have on the line. Detective karen shonka. Who's a los angeles sheriff's department investigator on sergeant owens murder steve and detective Shonka welcome to the john and ken show. Thank you And i imagine you're St you describe how you feel about this about what gas gone did forcing this plea agreement. I imagine you're at least bitterly disappointed. Well this is steve cooley. And the fact that the death penalty was not pursued as a huge disappointment. But the fact the murder of sergeant on did receive Tremendous sentence of life without the possibility of parole plus twenty five years the gun use plus at at attempted murder And another life in prison with the possibility of parole plus forty five years consecutive Was the best that could be achieved. Given the fact gas going to the death penalty off the table. Now remember if it weren't for judge chalfant and the injunction he issued everything all the special circumstances all these special allegations. All enhancements would have been off the table according to gascoyne Making this individual eligible for parole in less than twenty years so it was the march law lawyers that brought pressure and it was just chalk fonts order that caused the judge to be in the physician to issue the maximum sentence of circumstances. You think of sergeant owen was killed today that all those enhancement charges would not be filed against the murder correct. It was only the fact that those charges have been filed by district attorney. Jackie lacey and we're pimping at the time the court issued its order forbidding Gas gone from striking those allegations that we're able to get the sense we got today. It was strictly just trufant and all the attorneys that helped the family out that caused today's relatively good result under the circumstances and Detective shonka what are your feelings about the way everything played I think we got the best deal. Possible obviously A lot of us would have liked to seek the death penalty on this case but This is just as good for us right now. Is it possible with a governor's action that this man could someday be released from prison. This is steve cooley. Of course that depends upon the governor is and by the time That is under consideration. We'll probably have a whole different government place in california. So but you're right. Technically he could grant clemency Commutation that i think that's why they're likely in this case A given the absolute unwarranted cruelty execution style of law enforcement officer doing his duty responding to a burglary call. And don't forget this individual also attempted murder another responding deputy and taking shots him. So there's more than just charging own as the victim in this case. Karen do you and your fellow Sheriff's department members feel. That gascon doesn't value your lives very much that he's cheapened your lives because for from now on if somebody gets killed it's possible they'll get a short sentence of maybe only twenty years. I mean is that is that a burden that some of the officers are carrying. Yes absolutely and not only for law enforcement but for all victims It seems as though he's coddling criminals in speaking to criminals families and when victims and victims families are trying to Make contact with them and talk to him. He refuses any interviews. Or any conversation. There so i mean. It's just across the board which is sickening. You can't blanket these policies and directives over everything and and not pick certain cases where they don't work. It's just not gonna work and illegal with you. Think this might embolden criminals even more because they know. There's a big discount going on when it comes to sentencing. I'm sure you've seen that that. Yeah i'm sure he s and and we're hearing it all the time that they're getting out Even before the report is written there already being released. And i'm sure you've seen that video those those guys and in some california prison that were drinking pruneau and they were cheering their homey gusto because they were going to be getting out of prison gas cone. Yeah yeah so. So you know he's supposed to be a prosecutor and it's it's made our job very very difficult and and it's it's disheartening for you. Know the the guys working patrol Out there trying to lord's work and trying to put the bad man Behind bars and then he gets out right away you know. So yes john and ken. Yeah there there's light at the end of the tunnel the petitions i understand The rich quarter corrected the small mistake they have made. They should be out wednesday and the ultimate solution awaits us. The ultimate solution is to recall. George gascoyne and there's a tremendous ground swell of support and momentum. People should check out. Recall george gas dot com. They can volunteer and they can support this very important effort to recall. George gascoyne i was gonna ask you you censor an awareness and then With a lot of support to do this. Yes i do and i think a lot of the awareness comes from Your show you guys have been on this. They're very beginning very consistent Reporting a lot. Lot of relevant things that i think is sinking into the public at large and other talk show hosts also and some television. Newscasters stories have brought attention to the public. They got schnookered in the election. Now they can do the right thing. They can band together and they can recall george gas zone and solve. This problem is the only way to solve it. We're both of you in court today for the sentencing. It must have been pretty emotional. I guess steve alwin family members did do some speaking right. Karen you wanna talk to that Sure yes Stevo and had two sons and a daughter His mother was there. His wife spoke Several members from his team. Steve owen. how to like a cop team Out of Lancaster station and they were all there. Three of them spoke It was it was really sad and it. I don't know if there was a dry ice. I in the in the courtroom that today But they're very loving family a god. They're very faithful and most everybody Address lavelle and let him know that they forgave him for what he did. So it speaks volumes on on the owen family and and who they truly are truly are their their faith in god and And their belief has has brought them through this tragedy. We have covered a lot of horrific stories like this over the years. But there was so much. Love and support for sergeant owen that we could feel from the community. Thank you both for coming on. We appreciate it giving us your insights. Thank you run. County sure former. La county district attorney steve cooling on the line there and he was giving us an update from court today about the sentencing of the man who shot executed. La county sheriff's sergeant steven went up in lancaster. Back in two thousand sixteen just to repeat. He is getting life without parole steve. Cooley said there was a whole bunch of sentences there but you never know gavin. Newsom or governor garcetti. Well in the future but because this a chance at freedom i think it's very depressing about their releasing. Seventy six thousand felons early now out of the ninety five thousand that are in prison and a lot of these guys committed violent crimes and they're gonna be getting out early and then. The governor congest commuter sets excess. Oh key if we keep electing people like jerry brown and gavin newsom. They'll they'll be other governors like this. If that if that's what the public seems to vote for. I don't why. I guess they're just not aware of the horrific tragedies that occur when you when you allow violent criminals out early but our thanks to detective karen chunk. She was voice on the line there. The la county sheriff's departments sheriff's investigator. The murder of sergeant owen again recall george gascoyne. Dot com steve. Cooley said wednesday. I think he said what did you say you were coming up john and ken. Kfi florida john. And ken show. John kobylt ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. All right coming up after the news at five thirty. We'll be talking to steve gregory's been covering that fire up in pacific palisades. The arrest of a suspect is into fire set by a homeless person. We'll talk about all that. And of course the focus on ellie city councilman. Mike bonnin over the weekend. Article appears in the la times. It really is And this deals with. George gone the la county district attorney. Who going to be under a recall. We hope beginning. Wednesday with signature. Collecting inside george gascons justice revolution. A debate over what it is to be a crime victim. It's a curious article. Written by james quickly. And joe mon- mosengo and the way i read it and it starts with that horrific story sixteen old sierra brown and her older sister nick atkins were discovered burned in a west chester apartment. Brown had been beaten and shot once at close range atkins died from multiple gunshots. Police arrested brown seventeen year old boyfriend. Alleging he doused the apartment in bleach and torched it to cover his tracks. We've talked about this story. And they were going to try him as an adult but gascoyne wants to move it to juvenile court where that person i just described could be released at age twenty five. Think about what. He did think about how he could be out of the present system in just six or seven years twenty five. How is that possible. Twenty five year old man. Who's capable of killing two teenage girls and then burning them. I again a debate over what it is to be a crime victim. I let me what that means. You read this thing that the perpetrators the criminals are sometimes victims to you. Know this is what's going and this is why people like james queely joe zingo dangerous because while the la times is a joke. It's still has that coat of arms that masthead that impressed some people i know and this headline actually raises the question of who is exactly the victim ear. What i would think. It's the two teenage girls who got shot up and no one else. It set on fire except her family members. Their family bike their victims to this article goes on for pages and pages. It's like the first time in my life. It's not obvious that the two girls who are shot up and burned other know what's lurking here is our country's history of systemic racism and the criminal justice system carrying out the long sentences for people of color at has to end. That's what gas going is trying to make us aware of. You know something John thomas quoted in here and he's the deputy. Da has Gascoyne the most publicly and what he says is exactly right. And that's why. I don't believe this. Systemic racism is is there real argument first of all. It's false and it's phony okay right from the start. Secondly he says gas going does not care about people of color in this community. He is lying because who are the victims of these crimes primarily people of color thirty something they know in their communities so that in that completely invalidates gascons claims all right because there are there are hundreds and thousands of victims around the country who are black and hispanic and they're the victims of other black and hispanic criminals shootings murders the whole the whole bit. So you can't stand there and cat prattle on about systemic anything because the victims the victims who die or get badly wounded are mostly lack an hispanic and so you can't get into an argument with gas cone over this nonsense. Because that's not his argument his our idea is to dismantle the american way of life. That's what it is. It's what they somebody said about bonnin earlier. They are social democrat marxists. The concept of america has to be destroyed and going likes to say is repeated the several times when you know it's not until you probably about twenty five years old that you mature enough and i'm thinking wait a minute. You're saying that a seventeen year old. Who burns up. Two young girls then tries to cover up. His crime is just all he has an immature mind no comparing to say a seventeen year old. That drinks too much. maybe Gets involved on some sort of st It's like a fraternity rank right. That's what he's comparing today. Nobody was evil yet be aghast because that his motivation e can't actually go public and say. Here's what i'm trying to do. I'm part of a movement that's being financed okay. Chesa boat in san francisco's part of that movement. To bunn is part of the movement were all financed part of the movement. We are getting deconstruct american society so all that stuff about privilege right about people. Rich people at privilege. White people have privileged. What's the only way to end. Their privilege is to degrade. Their lives is to remove their privileges. Remove the peace and serenity burned down their homes. I mean biden has homeless people burning down homes when soweto equalize society. That's what we'll talk about. The arson suspect who has been arrested in the big fire up in pacific palisades at broke out friday night. Is it a transient. Is it another homeless. 'cause fire more coming up john and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt. Ken chiampou kfi am six. Forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Well in the pacific palisades area people are enraged outraged. Ready to chase bonding into the ocean because There is a fire over the weekend. that fortunately didn't kill. Anybody didn't bernie anyone's homes down scare the hell out of everybody for the last few days and It looks like A homeless persons connected to it while they did arrest a man yesterday. The not giving us a lot of detail about who this person is. Steve gregory is covering the story and covered the announcement of the arrests. Let's bring on for more. Yeah guy so. From our last conversation. I was able to determine that it looks like through sources of the man is scheduled for a mental health evaluation and he may be responsible for other fires in you know along the coast area and some of those mountainous areas We still have no confirmation on his residential status We do know that the evacuation orders mandatory evacuation. Orders will be lifted about twenty two minutes. So that's a good sign. Yeah people will be able to go back home you know. You're in contact with a lot of people behind the scenes and you talk to them. And i don't know how much you could reveal on the air but when you got to a point where over. Fifty percent of the fire's being called in our homeless connected fires and with a very dry rainy season about what four inches of rain. Everyone knows that this year is set up to be a terrible fire it is. We have a deadly devastating destructive year. And now they're getting a couple of dozen fires called in every day from homeless people. Is there any sense of urgency for them to stop this. Stop the homeless from living in all these places especially in the hills and in the brush so after the getty fire the la city fire department created a task force of firefighters that would go rotate around and they were going into these canyons. Were they are going into these canyons. And they're finding they're looking for encampments. They're specifically looking for hazardous materials flammable materials. And they're going in and they're they're basically telling these folks. It's kind of like the sheriff's department on the river bottoms. Listen folks we understand. This is where you need to live. This is dangerous. You got get out so fire. Department works with mental health folks with law enforcement and they go in and they identify the the these really high volatile areas fire volatility areas. And they they tried to get him out of there. But it's the you're talking. Massive acreage like try to get him out do they. Force them out if they're resistant. Well the fire department cannot do that. They're not a law enforcement agency. So far department goes in and identifies the high risk areas and they they have these teams that go in and they try to reason and work with them. I if they don't want to leave on their own and say listen. You're in a really bad fire zone is what they're trying to do is talk to them about. Listen yours much endanger as danger. You might be putting in others because this guy that they've gotten custody right now had to be taken to the hospital smoking relation so presumably. He got himself caught in whatever fire that he allegedly started he. He got himself caught so he put himself in endangered smell. So this new information you added that he may be a suspect and other fires. Yeah so but we don't own john. And i were just talking about fear see. I'm wondering what when i'm really wondering is whether these fires are survival fires cooking fires or firebugs fires exactly and you could play. A little difference is your out goes but yeah it's dangerous regardless of whether or not racing people are having cooking fires. You can't have going on not just chasing these people out of the woods but you had to change the entire climate. The climate of los angeles is welcoming people from all over the country as that documentary. Who is destroying venice points out. These people are flocking here. And they're all the they all cook. They've all got open grills. They got propane tanks. Go the fire department again. The fire departments not an enforcement bureau. So they they have to go in and look and try to convince these folks that what they're doing right. Is there a sense at all at city hall that were really close to horrific tragedy. And they've got to get these behind closed doors. I can tell you the fire. Chief is sitting there with the police chief with mayor's people and saying listen. You guys were on the verge of an explosive fire season. We've got to figure this out not just homeless people but people who refuse to do brush clearance and people who refused to do despite defensible space right. It's it goes across the board. And so what did the politicians say or there's worked up as the fire. People are well. Daddy sound like now that. I don't know because you've got this. You know the sort of Kids glove approach to that homeless issue. Because we were talking about this when you go all the way back to the pandemic and how they were reacting to the pandemic what they were doing. the homeless. Remember the homeless and the inmates were treated before or we're given the tension before the nursing homes so you've already kind of already know where thanks you end up with like a thousand homes On the west side or the hollywood hills. Right thousand in the hollywood hills. You get a hundred people dying and we find Find out that it's a homeless guy. Started the fire. For whatever reason. Doesn't that strike fear into them. I mean there's gonna come a day where they can't blame it on climate change. They can't talk the ray out of this well i. I don't understand why they want to take the risk of running a city that can produce that disaster at any minute this year. You know i. I can't go into the minds of the politicians. I can only tell you that politicians will continue to do what they do. Look at the park situation in the eviction from echo park. Look at look at what it took for a city councilman to finally call. Lapd and say get them out. Look at how long that went on and look at all the damage that that encampment did to echo park. Look at the tons of garbage and human waste and needles. That were extracted from that park. So you tell me. I mean how far what's the threshold for for something like this. How many homes have to burn. How many acres have burned. How many people have to be put in danger before they say. Oh maybe we better go after the homeless encampments. I don't know what the threshold is for these politicians. Why don't they have any and a sense of fear sense of urgency consensual just being decent to not put all we've got we they have they have millions of people in danger because they've allowed all this lunacy to happen in the street right wide. Nobody wants to live this way. I can only tell you that those conversations on the law enforcement firefighting levels are happening constantly. But the only can do as much as what they're allowed to do or funded to do and that's it and the and they also work under an administration that has a bunch of priorities set out and that's what they anybody go public. Call garcetti out. Why doesn't anybody challenged this. This is going to be deadly. You can have people burning to death. I don't understand this. Well let me tell you. I'm sorry i know. Listen uh giving instance you know the you know where. The busiest fire station is in the united states. Where station eight skid row downtown right and it's got the smallest service area in the united states but it's it's mostly medical. It's all medical ninety something percent of its medical calls and it's getting worse by the day. That's what the fire departments. Facing all. Right steve off the streets and into hospitals where they belong. Steve gregory thank you. John and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt. Ken chiampou kfi am six.

John & Ken Show Hour 4 (04/07)

"They are trying to catch show. Kfi am six forty. Were live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Coming up a chance to talk to a politician in california who went to the texas mexico border. It's tom mcclintock. He's there now whereas the vice president kamala harris i. She's doing vice presidential ceremonial things. He was given the job of dealing with the puerto crisis by biden announcement a few weeks ago. But she's been anywhere but the border. We'll talk to tom about that. And what he sees down there on the border during his visit. But it's just unbelievable. We know that the numbers are off the charts. We have to go back. Maybe fifteen years to see this many immigrants coming and particularly teams because obama. Opened that door with dhaka. Right for an action for childhood arrivals. That's why the dreamers that's what is led to the flood and people think that biden's going to bring back that program and more because he actually has an amnesty bill. Apparently he went off today about his infrastructure building. Tomorrow he supposed to take an executive action on gun violence. We'll see what that brings breaking news. This hour biden will announce an executive order on gun. Violence it will simply say. Stop shouting each other right now. We're going to pay a little attention once again. We spent a lot of time on this show in the recall of gavin newsom which far as we know is probably going to be on the ballot later this year unless something really goes suspiciously awry with the signature checking. We'll keep an eye on that but the other one that just popped up a month or so. Ago is the effort against the la county district. Attorney george gascon. They had to wait till he was ninety days in office. When passed they submitted the paperwork the rating now for approval to begin circulating. Petitions one of those involved in this effort is a family member of a victim. And that's very common in these stories. In efforts to recall george gascon who had his dopey one hundred day. News conference trotted out. A couple of people. He claimed were crime victims organizations and this is what they want this kind of reform. The thing he did and the worst thing he did was taking away. The opportunity to file special circumstances charges against really killers in the case of our guest disarray on brady. It concerns the murderer for some trillion. Who was repeatedly beaten and stabbed lost. Consciousness suspects thought he was dead drove him to the mountains disposed of his body when they realized that he was alive. They finished him off by stomping. His head is one ugly vicious story through his body off a cliff. She found out that the district attorney george gone was going to drop the special circumstances. Charges against three of the men accused of murdering her son which could mean and they're young. They could be eligible for parole in twenty to thirty years rather than face life in prison without parole. Let's bring desert back on. Welcome back to the john and ken show. hi ken. how are you good. We're all we now specifically in terms of the getting the petitions out there to la county registered voters so currently the petition has been submitted to county registrar's office for approval and that was done at the end of march. And now we're in the process of working with them to finalize the approved version of the position. And we expect to have that done By the end of april to hopefully get over five hundred and ninety thousand signatures within one hundred and sixty days. That is our goal right now. And we'll people be able to download the petition or they have to go in person or your. Have it mailed to them now. There's there if you re to recall. George gascon dot com all. That information is on there and we will be having people There's a spacer actually to volunteer donate Whatever anybody can do to help us but there will be people out on the streets. Hopefully getting petitions signed now. How did you learn that. The special circumstances charges against the men who murdered your son. How did you learn that they were going to be dropped so back in the beginning of december actually the day after george. Gas cone was sworn in the prosecutors on my signs case Contacted me and they made me aware of what was going on. And at that time i mean immediately after. They told me what was happening. I said there was no way. I was going to sit back and stay quiet. I and my son's voice. So i told them you know what game on game on. I'm ready to do whatever i can to get this man out of office. Were they sympathetic. When they broke the news to you how did they feel about it. Oh they you know they were heartbroken for me and for my family You know fortunately they don't agree with you. know george. gus cones way of thinking what he's doing but unfortunately this is their job and they cannot go against him in fear of them losing their job or having some type of re- retaliation from the da. So here they are. You know they took on this job to protect and serve as victims and they are being cheated from doing that for us. And and it's unfair and i know and i know deep down that every day they go in and do their job. They don't wanna do what they're doing right now but they have to because that is with the boss is telling them to do. Yeah i mean he likes to portray gas gone does that. There's a lot of support this within the victim community within the legal community and seriously how could that be further from the truth and we've talked to many family members in your. Yeah and they feel the same way joke. I yeah continues is it really is a joke. Yeah no problem. it's you know it really is a joke. Because he said that you know there's victims victims. Don't find healing in putting people behind in what he says. Cages i am sorry but i am sure i am positive. I've spoken to many victims families. We all want to see our victim are are are murdered in jail for life. There's no doubt about it. So i don't understand who he's talking to. It doesn't make any sense. I don't know who these supposed victims. Are it crime victims are. He cites these phony studies and he's been telling people that research shows that a majority of survivors violent crime. Don't believe that they'll heal by putting a person in a cage and likes to use words like that. Yes yes yes and and you know. I continue thing that i i truly believe that he is in the wrong office. He should have been a public defender in my eyes. He there to defend the criminals not victims. He feels that the criminals are victims. I mean he's doing away with with gangs units right now because he doesn't find that that is good for them yeah. The lilia gang being destroyed and the ramifications from this will be felt. Maybe a little bit further into the future as we see more and more of these Terrible killers and other attackers krizan for shorter periods. That's what this is all about to reduce the prison population. Any claims that there's some sort of magic way of reforming these people You're just a green light. Your son's attackers were gang members. I don't remember where they no no they weren't My son was far from gang member. They were none no no game. Game billion This was this was all over. I suppose that my son stole some marijuana from one of them and that one Planned out this murder while they lured him there and they plan to his out. Now i mean it was a horrible horrible story in the way. They tortured him and then they going to make sure he was dead when they realized he was alive they went and beat them again. It's unbelievable depraved. Behavior that deserves no freedom ever simple. How could anybody think actually. And this is what gasco likes to say. Well when we're young we do think sometimes we regret but people can be reformed. They can be changed. You don't feel that way about your son's killer can't he. No no no not at all you know. Can i do believe that. There's people that do deserve second chances That's the way. He campaigns by the way he campaign about second chances but when he failed to to to really elaborate on. What was these these Second chances for because he never said murderers. I bet you. Then nobody would have elected him voted for him if we if people would have known that he was talking about giving second chances to murderers i i. We're not talking about people who who stole a lollipop. This is someone that took. Somebody's life you know. This is huge so for him to say that. Oh you know people are going to be reformed you know. They need second chances. That's a bunch of baloney to me. it really is. It doesn't make absolutely no sense whatsoever. I think he's a fraud. I think-i policy campaign. I i you know and it was all because of soro's money that's all it's about it's about soro's money that got him there desharnais. It was great to talk to you again. I appreciate your enthusiasm as you said. You're all on this effort to get this guy out of office so we'll be talking to you again that that's desert on brady. Her son was murdered back in two thousand eighteen. The case comes around. And of course it's going to be life in prison without parole and at a minimum but george casco becomes. Da immediately drops all the special circumstance charges which means these killers could be out in twenty to thirty years in the way things are going in the state. Maybe even less than that recall george. Scone dot com. They're hoping to get petitions out by the end of the month. More coming up with the john. And ken showed jonah catch show. Kfi am six forty live everywhere in the iheart radio app case new york bhai now. The tiger woods crash was because of excessive speed. Who is a news. Breaker drove right off the other side of the road and crashed because he was driving way too fast for that road. That's it show over nothing else. Dc here no special celebrity treatment coming up after the news at five thirty congressman. Tom mcclintock will join. The heat is in texas looking for himself at the border search. That has really ramped up. Since joe biden took office in january. It's so good for the smugglers that their advertising now in places like wanna for customers financing available. Not kidding vice. President kamala harris nowhere to be seen. You're the border. But others have gone. And tom will give us his firsthand. Observations coming up after the news at five thirty the matter of the recall of gavin. Newsom you may or may not know that sixty minutes did a story last sunday about republican governor rhonda santa's of florida and it was talking about how he chose publix which is a grocery store chain down there be lax to partner with on the vaccine rollout and they connected to donations. The company made to his political committee. That amount apparently is one hundred thousand dollars. This is so outraged that even democrats in florida or like what. They took some conversation or something that to santa's made out of context in weaved it into the story for their narrative. But the reason i'm talking about it is how come there hasn't been any scrutiny of gavin newsom and his no big deal with blue shield to take over the state's vaccine efforts. Because let me tell you this much. Blue shield is reportedly contributed almost twenty three million dollars. The newsome's campaigns over the years also to his special causes memory told you about those before those sort of nonprofits that exist because of politicians name and this is a back door way for you to donate to the politician without breaking campaign finance laws. Newsome's very good at that they're called behest did payments and apparently he's got a pile full. Sodas garcetti this is how they operate and for that no special treatment. I'm sure you're just believed in the cause. The governor will not give you any special consideration yet here. We have blue shield getting this a big contract with the state of california to carry out the vaccine program and says your public. Health officials have pushed back so much. A number of counties. Don't want sign on with blue shield. They're still trying to work out. Deals with counties throughout the state. I think they did reach one with la county but it says here that the blue shield according to a report a blue shield whistle blower by the name of michael. Johnson reportedly noted that company can't technically make money off of the vaccinations. It stands to gain with regards to marketing. The reason blueshield has been designated for. This is not because of its capabilities because of its relationship with newsom newsom of course claims that the deal with blue shield has nothing to do with their long standing financial support. The allegation is nonsense. Everybody came together looking at. What's working what's not working. We identify two partners in particular to nonprofits kaiser and blue shield. They have the kind of scale the capacity that we were looking for but he also tapped the blue shield ceo. Paul markovic to help steer the state's cova testing strategy. Also saying that that's falter. Oh and by the way. Apparently the vaccination program in florida is going much more smoothly than the one here in california which is another reason to suspect newsom on this. We're still having trouble reaching all the every time we look the states. I think they moved up to twentysomethings place. But usually they're in the forties and of all the state's getting vaccinations into arms. And don't fall for that trick where they give you the total vaccination number vaccinated mara people then because we've got forty million people in california of which more than half the population is eligible for the vaccine. So that's nonsense. Blue shield previously denied allegations that many years of donating to newsom including contributing to one hundred sixty nine thousand dollars to an account to help the governor fight the recall election. They're saying it never benefited us. There's no financial or other benefit being bestowed upon us or crude by blue shield center spokesman blue shield was asked by the state to help with vaccines are award is to help save lives. Okay sure but the point again sixty minutes. This big story on the florida governor. Nothing on news. That has to payments no bid contracts big contributors. Nothing might took a nothing story and blew it up. This is a bigger story there. Ignoring it though. Recall gavin twenty twenty dot com. When i come back chance to talk to congressman tom mcclintock longtime state. Legislature here in southern california. Now represents a district outside of sacramento. He went to the border. Texas nexico to see for himself. What's going on there. I'll talk to him. Nex john and ken show. Hey donna ken show.

The fourth congressional district described here is the sacramento suburbs to the outer suburbs of fresno and also includes yosemite national park. it's a pretty vast geographic coverage of his district. But that's not where he is and he's not in washington dc. Tom mcclintock is in texas. The us mexico border story and tom welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me back in. You're going to place where apparently our vice president doesn't really have the time or the need to go there. Even though she's been put in charge of this border mess well. I said at the time.

Taken into custody by the border patrol patrol Their warehouse in these Code 'incubators that you've seen on on television. We saw one unit designed for thirty three kids over five hundred in them Over time they turned over to chess. We're sending its travel arrangements for the reset that final destination. They're all guaranteed entry. You wanna know why you're seeing all of these children being dragged on this two thousand mile scale of terror by the mexican cartels is because it works If they survive the journey and about a third of sexually molesting about two-thirds subjected to violence along the way But they get to the border there that it and the numbers are just staggering. I mean The the week of the twenty twenty election there were one hundred family. Units that illegally crossed the border hundred. By the week of the inauguration that number increased to eleven hundred and last week it was fifteen thousand. And that's every week. The border patrols had over one hundred thousand counters in bed board. That's that's a population the size of erie. Pennsylvania or south bend indiana It was one hundred and seventy thousand in march That's the population of salem oregon. And they single month. This is a mass migration of historic proportions and no civilization Has survived such and of course this has nothing to do. With the fact that biden reversed a lot of president trump's policies at the border and the message got out to people in these countries including these cartels these smugglers that. This was the time to bring particularly the miners to the border. And don't forget the mexican crime cartels taking in roughly a half a billion dollars a month Through this human trafficking That's why these kids are being dragged north And the when illegal immigrant arrives here in this country. They're usually deeply indebted to the mexican cartels. They in effect become indentured servants. That's are enforced by threats against family members who remain back home and Is giving the criminal. Gangs a constant stream of new human resources but when she says as biden His first acts as president abandoned construction of the border wall announced illegal. Immigrants won't be deported. He ended the remaining mexico policy for for asylum. Seekers that sent a powerful message to the third world And if you saw the gallup poll a few weeks ago they're estimating forty two million people in latin america and the caribbean who would very much like to come to the united states and now they can and now they are an democrats in dc. Or they're pretending that there's not a problem here is that i mean like i said kamala harris was put in charge. We nothing. she doesn't even go to the border. She goes to a chicago bakery. Where she's eating cake. She took a tour here in california. She went up to oakland. Appear with gavin newsom to try to save his job. I mean are they kidding me and the media also downplays his time as you know because they're in bed with the with biden and the democrats not letting people know just how incredible this the number of people showing up the border is and i think it's delivered i think The democrats realize that they lost the american people and their only chance to hold onto power to open the borders and courage a highly dependent highly impoverished and highly uneducated population to to what across the border but the most chilling thing that one of the border patrol agents said. Was you know our border is your border The the these these lasted influx of migration doesn't stay in the border communities so they're immediately a migrating crossing the united states. And that was going to have an enormous impact on everything in public safety. The local schools locally sources housing supply A hospital emergency rooms or the ability of working americans to earn a living. All of that Communities are gonna be doing across the country. we're already glitter in california But it's gonna be now getting exponentially worse and you you touched on this few minutes ago. You think that some of this is kind of on purpose by the biden administration. Because it's going to eventually help With the voting rolls in the future. How how else do you explain their complete lack of concern over this. I mean we are way beyond any discussion of whether this is a border crisis of the question now is whether we have a border at all. I asked the president of the Border patrol agents union. That very question today and his answer was paddock. No we no longer have a border. We sort of have one in the in the sense that Title forty two which is emergency regulation Four coolant nineteen still exists. And that is being used to turn back single adults and family groups With children over so But that's only going to. Last as long as the kobe declaration last it could be withdrawn anytime and at that point. Every one of the border patrol agents. I talked to said we other have a border. There's no way to turn them back. The only thing. I heard when biden talked about this. A couple of weeks ago is at comma. Harris is going to try to work with the leaders of these countries and trying to work out some way for them to control the flow biden. Also mentioned which i thought was silly. They have this plan to maybe set up little centers in towns and cities in these countries. Where people could apply for asylum there to get to the us. Have you heard these ideas. Yeah and all of their activities are designed to increase the flow four nationals into this country And then not about about discouraging them from coming You know the only message you hear from the biden administration as well. We're not ready yet. So don't come quite yet. But as i said there forty two million Latin americans and a liberal point point people from latin america who Who to come to this country and the borders now wide open. I don't know if you saw this story from. Cbs news time but apparently in guatemala there smugglers are advertising putting up signs to try to get people to want to come to the us. Call this number. One one of our members talk to a teenage girl who says she was actually She's from guatemala. Actually getting Targeted facebook acts. I appreciate talking to you tom. Thanks for taking a moment to speak with us today. We appreciate it. Thanks congressman tom. Mcclintock is in mcallen texas He went to the border as a number of republican congress. People have done because the democrats. Don't care this is a problem of their own making and maybe it's not a problem to them. The influx of immigrants into the united states. Which you've seen over the decades what it's done to california particularly southern california. It's kind of the idea that we should take on the world's poor and the world's needy and maybe in the future. We'll have the votes john and ken show. Kfi john and ken show kfi am six. Forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Apparently biden's gonna issue six secs executive orders tomorrow on gun violence. That's how you do it. Fire out those executive orders challenge them court every time trump did something resembling that was challenged immediately in court but probably not knowing the way things are should be a couple of more stories on border. Just got done talking to congressman. Tom mcclintock who's there in the gallon. Texas getting a firsthand view for himself about the chaos and the overwhelming number of migrants trying to get into the us particularly children. Texas governor. greg. Abbott said tonight. There is an investigation pending accusations of child sex abuse neglect and more at the freemen expo center apparently in the san antonio area and this was confirmed by fox news when they talk to the local sheriff's office. They said they were called out to this place at about five o'clock allegations of a sex event due to the nature of the incident and the preliminary stats investigation. This is the only information available being released at this time. There were four complaints child sex abuse at the facility. Understaffing children not eating in the failure to separate children with or without cova nineteen great wonderful. I mentioned talking to tom. That the person that's supposed to be spearheading response to the border. Search vice president. Kamala harris has not visited the border in fact tracking her movements over the weeks since she was announced as the person. That's going to be the borders. Are she'd been everywhere. Including eastern california. Here is the white house spokesman. Jen psaki getting the question over this from new york. Post reporter disgust. You're saying president in charge of the root causes of the crisis last tuesday she guatemala's president but she hasn't visited the border central america or spoken leaders el salvador or on doors up. She's traveling this week took time to visit a bakery. Although i'm wondering is she still working on this and can you address the perception. That she's kind of quietly backing off. I i would say the vice president was visiting chicago actually to talk about cove it and the importance of communities getting the vaccine when it's available and accessible to them and so while she was there like many americans. She got a snack to do that. She's absolutely an issue that she is remains committed to is in the lead on the northern triangle. Sure you're aware of but is not the same as the border. They're all related to each other but addressing being responsible for the northern triangle is working with these countries in the region addressing. The root causes working with them and how we can address. This is what this lady does and all the reporters picked on the trump spokes holes for doing this kind of dance. This woman is already a master at it. She gives no kind of answer at all and she's entitled to a snack because people love that bakery story. He stopped to get a piece of cake. And we're being overwhelmed at the. Us border it's time for ding dong. Hey dig dog with you about that. Look at you thank you very much we look at you. Look at you bob come on. I think that's the term. I use when i forgot somebody's name. Hey baba you've been that's sounds impressive. Secca pal old fashioned or nice to see michelle richards. Come on one of my old pals who runs the orange county fair. We'll talk to her about the opening days. That's gonna be cool all right Plus the. I don't know if you saw that that high speed chase last night but it ended with that eighteen wheeler putting. Yeah well now they're gonna go after that eighteen wheeler guy driving the truck the city or the county is because they don't want people to do that phrasing. He was interviewed. Said he just did it because he knew that this was important at this guy. I know he had a big heart. A small a lighter wallet now. But i also elsa got. No research center is testing an oral vaccine for covid nineteen has or no longer have to get that shot. Put a needle in your mouth. That would be cool right And then tiger woods was going double the speed limit. Eighty five eighty seven miles. Real breaking news although he was going too fast and not paying attention not tickets. I didn't you turn in tarzana. You know year ago. I got lit up for that killed people. If they were on the other side of that road or anybody was walking dead long over there.

John & Ken Show Hour 1 (05/07)

"Criminal system into the direction of the twenty first century. The public should be outraged by this. We need to use science invading order to address public safety violent crime data and thank the lord your data and your dangerous to the communities of down. We are very very concerned about shifts policy. The not only in cans public safety. I am absolutely outraged at the lies. That the fidesz feeling. He has no business lamenting love of his own personal choice which we voted. The don't so in the way that it's much more physically and socially responsible that only if you break the law but he is not doing what he can to do as the tourney and that is the victim. I really believe that he is in the wrong office. Eat been a public defender. He again it could be voted out. Crime is on a historic low in the store blows and say what if i learn now for an update on the recall of la county district. Attorney george gascon. Johnny john kobylt and ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app Even announced yesterday that they're working on those petitions are still trying to work through the la county registrar's office to get the recall. Petitions available tally. County registered voters. But we'd hoped. May i may. I has come and gone. They hope within the next ten days we'll get the word we'll get the go-ahead and they said they're going to do a big press event the day that they can start distributing petitions for the recall. So we'll keep you updated on that. And i think we've got One of the many exhibit as for the case against gas cone today trill boys that were murdered in the last ten years all up in the valley. The antelope valley. And of course. Everyone knows about gabriel. Fernandez that was a netflix special Then there was no quattro which just happened to more recently. The second boy that died at the hands of his mother and her boyfriend was anthony. Avalos who died almost three years ago. Horrible just long term beatings torture. You know the story by now and he was yes. No no go ahead i. The news concerning guests gone is that the death penalty has been dropped against the mother. This is the boyfriend. This is shocking. I mean for days and days. They whipped with a belt and a loop cord. They poured hot sauce on his face and mouth. They held him by his feet and dropped on his head. Repeatedly cigarette burns cigarette burns eight. Virtually he died and they can face now. Only life in prison without parole murder and torture charges their names. Heather baron. the mother and kareem leiva the a boyfriend. And we're gonna talk with john. Had tommy john is involved in the case and he can't talk about specifics of the case except for what's already on the record but he can tell you did put in the record of action to drop. The death penalty is of course the deputy. Da in the la county da's office and you can talk about the general policy. John thanks for coming on the show with us again. Thank you for having me. This has got to be Just especially difficult for you involved in this case and having to withdraw the death penalty is punishment this. Here's a blanket policy against the death penalty and against life without parole as well. And you're right it you know. Blanket policies for any case in the district. Attorney's office are not good They're basically just being lazy He doesn't wanna look at the facts of each specific case. He doesn't wanna look at the evidence of each specific case and he doesn't want to address the law on each specific case he just had a blanket policy for every case so any case where going forward where a child is tortured and murdered anyone's child. Or or if you're going to school and you kill numerous children or you're a serial murderer or you kidnap a child rape that child And murder that child. He he won't allow us to see even life without the possibility of parole. I think that's just shock. Everybody in los angeles county He basically did not care. He cares more about murderers and rapists. Then he does about normal angelenos. He's like the governor. The governor wants to release seventy six thousand. Inmates sixty three thousand of those violent. He cares more about the safety of murderers and rapists prison and he does his own Population of families and children who live outside of prison and newsom broad. George guys here. He brought him here in twenty ten from arizona. He appointed him as the chief of police in san francisco. Then he appointed him as the da of san francisco. So the only reason that gas going here in los angeles is because of the governor And now the governor just protects him There's there's no way they're the only way that we have as citizens Angelinos as members of this community to to take a stand is to recall. George gascon as the only only thing we have to do And so many prosecutors. That'd be district attorneys who handle cases I've had i've had no the anthony tavares case for a long time. And you know you you you work the case you become you have a relationship with the family Your relationship with people on the case I did a grand jury in that case You present evidence You put your name on the record you right motions and george gas going to care about any of those things. He doesn't he. He has his own political opinions and beliefs and he's inputted them on every case including the most egregious cases. Well he'll just say they're going to end up in prison without the possibility of parole. I mean is that necessarily going to happen. You know this is the issue. And so i i think people need to know this first off in two thousand twelve california voted for the death penalty. In two thousand sixteen california again voted for the death. penalty So we need to follow the law. That's the first thing the second thing is there are some cases Where they're the worst of the worst and in those type of cases where you have one hundred percent evidence or whether the worst of the worst i think needs to be be determination to determine if they should have the ultimate punishment and we had a procedure like that. We don't have that anymore. We're not even following the law. The second issue. I think angelenos need to know is if a person only gets l. y. Life without the possibility of parole governor ten commute that to a life sentence and then parole at some point can release that individual. You can't that can't happen. If gets sentenced to death so the worst at the governor can do is commute that case to life without the possibility of parole that distinction. I'm glad you right. We didn't we didn't know that's what i want. Yeah a lot of governor can meet a lotta sentences so we know how this can work exactly and so A lot of people don't realize that they don't understand that and this is all little This is a plan. Is the plan by george gas gone. It's a plan by governor newsom. They want to release so many individuals. They do not care about the safety of the public. They want to release individuals and that's why they are working together. with the assembly. Creating all these laws that have nothing to do with public safety. All they have to do. It is releasing violent and dangerous criminals into our society. What is the upside for this because you could see in la county. I sure you're aware shootings are up about two hundred percent and partly because of gascons philosophy. The criminals are well aware that not much is going to happen to them. Partly it's lapd being forced to pull back what he's why does everyone politicians in power want this to happen. They're going to end up with more murders. More shootings more mayhem. I don't understand the desire to allow that to happen. you know. i think it's a great question. A lot of people ask me why. Why is george gascon doing this. Why governor newsom doing this. And i can only from looking from the outside It seems like george. Soros has no paid Gas gone a lot of money to come down here. And all they really care about chaos That's it they just they care about causing chaos. It seems to me that they don't care about us. Just the normal angelenos the normal person who lives here who raises their family here. Who's working who's contributing to society. They don't care. It's just reminding and destroying our way of life. That's it that may not. That's it unless they can explain something else me. Because i see you know like you said shootings or up both in the county and the city and this is based upon actual data and science from lapd les the Gun assaults and killings up in the county that this is also based on actual data science from lapd. And elliot's not from some sort of group that's funded by george soros actual statistics And and this is these statistics. Show that this increase in shootings homicide and assaults has skyrocketed a both in the county and in the city. George gaston and been the district attorney and so what does that tell you is that he is not providing public safety to anybody in la county. John tommy we appreciate you coming on again. And thanks for all your tireless work on behalf of these murder children cases and of course Your efforts even though you're still in the department to speak out against these policies we appreciate you coming on say one other thing i just i wanna know. All the elected officials on talking about supervisor. Barger i'm talking about the mayor. I'm talking about chief moore. I'm talking about all these elected officials in los angeles. I wanna know why they're not taking public vision on the anthony tavares case Why did they think gets political to not stand up for the rights of a murdered and tortured child. I wanna know why they're not standing up for the life of anthony of those. The only person i've seen do that. So far is the sheriff alex in the way he's the only one. The only elected officials come out publicly. Supporting the life of anthony outflows. I wanna know where everybody else. Where are they. Why is just so political when a child is tortured and murdered. Why is that political. Where where are these elected officials in los angeles. They're just silent. Can't anymore between that. Thank you again but deputy john. Tommy thank you. Thank you so much. He's right we had sheriff e in a waiver on. Let's talk anthony. Avalos put to talk about in general the policies of this wretched la la county da. George guscott born up. John and ken show kfi. John and ken show john kobylt ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. We'll talk about this more later but one of the big stories this afternoon. Is that the population of california dropped for the first time ever big word ever coming on the heels last week of losing a seat in the house of representatives and yes. It's a good thing. Because john would like less people. It didn't drop enough we'll talk about. I'd like more of you to leave. We found out something pretty important just talking to l. a. county deputy john khatami who has been just absolutely the top man on the cases involving the deaths of children at the hands of usually their mother and a live in boyfriend. These torture debts. Gabriel fernandez one. We've been talking about now. Is anthony avalos. Who was just ten years old when keep this in mind. He wasn't just murdered. And i say that because if they had just taken a gun and shot him through the head that would be clearly awful but over a period of time. They slowly tortured this little boy to death. He died of head. Injuries ultimately in two thousand eighteen. Think about they dropped him on. His head does deserve the death penalty. But these people. And here's the here's the key takeaway. We just got from john. Tommy if they get life without parole which is the way guests is positioning this. We could have a governor commute their sentences and eventually they could be paroled. He switches them from life without parole to the possibility of parole. And it's johnny. Tommy said if they got the death penalty he can't do that. He can only commuted to life without parole. You see the difference and they know this guests goan newsom know this and i think he's to work and thirty five years old. These killers heather baron. Thirty one and kareem leiva is thirty five so think about that we and guests to oh ten years. They've served their good time halftime and he's done a great job in prison. They don't believe a government should be incarcerating people when newsome says he's gonna release seventy six thousand out of ninety five thousand prisoners clearly. He doesn't believe government. Prisons have a role in society anymore and clearly guests gone believes that as well and now he's gonna turn general this rob bonte. Who believes the same thing. Well they're all they're all lined up there are all these s he said. Newsom broadcasts gone into california and appointed him as the san francisco. Da bonte is buddies with gascon. Newsom appoints bonte as the attorney general. They've gotten in the system. Are the system now. This all leads back to both recalls newsom and gas got to do it and they're taking it. I mean besides all the things we talk about newsom. We don't spend a lot of time here on the criminal justice system angle. This but you just lined up perfectly you remember. We got into to him more than ten years ago when he was the mayor san francisco and he had a sanctuary city policy and a gang. Member was never deported. A gang member then shot an innocent father and his two sons in broad daylight the bologna fan the bologna family and mucyo keenum for gang members. Noble newsome's sanctuary city policy caused that triple murder and newsom would never meet and never talk with mrs bologna. The widow my instead. He fled to montana with his new wife and disappeared for a while. That was about ten years ago and younger. Now yeah well. It was way san francisco mayor. So it's at least ten years. And i realized that he's called he sociopathic. He's got no empathy no feeling for other people suffering and it's clear here what what's the theme of all these cases we're talking about gas goan newsom. They don't care about the suffering of the victims and the victims families and you heard john itami explain voters twice decided to retain the death penalty just a couple of years ago. They tried it again. The voters voted to keep it yet. They're not willing to overrun it. They're going to reduce it to life without parole which could turn out to life with parole. Thanks to governors newsom because he can commute sentences and remember. This is all getting financed by the billionaire. George soros who has a deep disgust with the american way of life and he's created these subversive organizations that have now infiltrated elective office from city council members which we discussed at length yesterday to district attorneys and and those in the legislature. We've got us averse of element in government. Now that is trying to undo our way of life. They're anti capitalist. They're anti police. They're anti prisons. They're anti-democracy they hate america the way it is today and it and what they figured out is the weak point. That would terrorize people. Socially is to scream. Racism every five minutes and white supremacy. That'll cause people to back off and be scared. So that will. That will blunt the resistance. Because every time somebody tries to resist any of the things we talk about is like a white supremacist. A racist. no. I'm not that sorry. And so they enforce a moral power on our society here especially in california and they try to write us off to. You're just those lock them up guys right throw away the key. Try to use all sorts of expressions. Look no this. you've heard the show for years. We're not a couple of flag-waving patriot types. But this is dangerous especially the criminal justice system that they're trying to undo with a couple like this that gets released within years for the torture of this poor boy now john tommy was certainly the head who knows so much. He's got all the smarts about these cases at four zero five. We're going to hear from the heart. And that is bryant claypool on attorneys representing a family members of anthony. He will join us with his thoughts on this decision by the la county da to drop the death penalty against his mother and her boyfriend. Who murdered this little boy. We got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi debra mark has been a lakers. Fan is suing la claiming. He lost his right eye. Because of john. Ken show john kobylt and ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Well how about this expression. That was quick yesterday. During this very hour we were talking to carl gemayel carlo. With reform california and of course he's talk show host on kogo radio in san diego and he had reached out to us to come on the show to talk about the department of agriculture in san diego county reaching out to farmers who might want to consider selling their land for the possibility of a tent city as an intake hub for migrants. This did not sit well with carlin is audience and really it is crazy to think that actually going to use american land set up to intake people from another country. Joe biden's being overwhelmed at the border with his policies. Or i should say recinding trump's paul and i think that's stupid intake phrase was an after the fact cover what they wanted to do. The email did say tent city. Yeah well well. They were going to live long term. Because there's nowhere to put a lot of these people yeah. This was the county department of agricultural weights and measures and the reason we're mentioning again. It's already been rescinded. I think it even happened while we were talking to carl yesterday at this time they have rescinded the request they're no longer asking farmers about unused agricultural land for the purpose of tent city. They have formally rescinded threat west. So are they gonna just set up the intake hub about a month. I mean i mean. The people are still piling up at the border by the thousands every day. They're still nowhere to put them. There's nowhere for them to live nowhere for the kids to go. Well you're right. This came originally from the california office of emergency services. That's where this whole thing started. Day are the ones that said. It's not a ten city. It's an intake hub where we can vaccinate and screen people and all that kind of stuff. High s thing i. We're in charge of changing the language to confuse you and cover up what we're actually doing because that that is that is the way the government media runs now to create nonsense phrases to cover up what you can see with your own eyes intake of my ass. They're going to set up shantytowns out carl described. That's the perfect word. Because they've allowed shantytowns all over southern california already with the homeless. Why not add a few more. Except they have so many thousands coming in that. Yeah you'd need open farmland. And by the way the new email from the san diego county officials said this please disregard as the state has rescinded. The request please note the terms tent city was inadvertently used to describe a soft structure built out intended to support a testing vaccination and resource center in the county open. Land was never envisioned or intended to be used as temporary living space soft structure. That's a tent. Generally it is anything that has a soft move circus ten. That's right all it's still a tent. Boy they go sit. Where do these people get trained to do this to talk in circles talk and long complicated meaningless paragraphs to come up with with nonsense euphemisms that obscure the truth. Did you have to ask some kind of exam before you can work in government. Apparently san diego is thinking about five million dollar legal defense fund for illegal immigrants. Who faced in. I think the state has won. I believe california does have some sort of a fund. Yeah yeah that's what my tax money going for. That's why you know when somebody says well ain't you want to pay more taxes on a punch him in the face. Here's why what's the tax money going for it not to pave the road. No it's gonna go to give legal defense fund for people who broke the law by barging over the border. Yeah that's what i want. That's what i work for. That's why i'm showing up here. Every day they got to solve them. Pay for everybody's defence fund. Good lord. i haven't heard anything really bad in the last week about the border. But there's still a lot of people calling you don't you don't why the media stopped covering it. That's why i think you're right. That's what happened. No it's it's it's as bad as it's ever been it's the same rate of increase in is. Okay yeah right. They're not covering Although because that would make That would make old dementia man look bad because people could accept a brief flurry of activity except right but no this is a chronic way of life now where thousands everyday are coming across the border. And that's why you hear all these wacky ideas. It's like yeah. Can we have the long beach convention center. We have the pomona fairgrounds. Gee can we have all the mta farmland in san diego county. What do you think that is because because mexico honduras. Guatemala and el salvador are emptying out by the hundreds of thousands. They're emptying out so today. The illustrious vice president kamala harris had her virtual meeting with the president of mexico. Andres manuel lopez obrador. I don't think anything came of it. Some usual generic discussion. She was asking questions. Like how did we get these central american countries to hold onto their people to make it worthwhile to stay there rather than try to microbes. You're you're you're silly hot air nonsol- root cause stopped. That's just academic masturbation there. It really. is they know what's going on. They sit there and talk in these areas lofty forums together seminars task forces. They know what's going on. We put out the free stuff sign and they hide behind. An obama tried this that well. They're all fleeing gang activity and crime but we know from talking to migrants cds for jobs. And that's not a reason for asylum just because your country is poor and you can't find work to feed your family doesn't mean you get to come to the united states and stay. That's not the grounds for asylum. But they always try to position it. People like harrison obama and biden recall. Their countries are just so violent and they have to flee could be killed. it's propaganda the way guests gone. Newsom believe that that prisons and police forces are immoral and should not be part of our society. What they believe is that there should not be borders now. Most people think that's crazy talk right. You can't actually run on open borders. You can't you'll lose so what you do is you always justify it and you always downplay new say well. They're fleeing violence and they're fleeing poverty and they're fleeing global warming and a small number may be but try what it is is. It's really poor there and you have an oppressive government and we're offering all kinds of free stuff that's what it is. We always love cheap labor. Yeah yeah and this country. I don't work cheap. That's a lot of money for their country. That's the unholy marriage of the of the corrupt republicans who are Sold out to big business and and the democrats who are all soft headed about having one great united world there are people who don't think borders ought to exist anywhere that that that the free movement of of human beings is an absolute right that we all have which means of course two billion people would come here because because we figured out the best system to live and when you're number one and we're like we're like the gang keys like the lakers when you're number one when you are the richest country in the most powerful country the smartest country stupidest we are where the smartest country everybody gets angry and jealous and they think he didn't play fair you did. You did something wrong. You cheated somehow right. That's what it is. It's basic human jealousy and envy. We got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi john ken show john kobylt and ken chiampou. It's k. f. I am six. Forty live everywhere. The iheartradio app not. I'd be careful if you step outside tomorrow. You might get hit by piece of chinese rocket. Hey it's possible. We'll be talking to alex stone. Abc news on this story. If you haven't heard. There is a chinese rocket that was launched. Its falling back to earth expected to crash sometime somewhere saturday. Chances to land and water or possibly the parts will burn up in the atmosphere. But what the hell it's fun to think about. No you know what i heard. Happy mother's day today on the news that The chinese are trying to catch up to us and the russians when it comes to sending stuff into space sure and they're way behind because the last time the americans at a problem with a rocket reentry or space debris was When a piece of the space shuttle not space shuttle the what was it said. Skylab was it i think so battled back i think around nineteen seventy nine and eight. It came tumbling to earth landed in australia. And we figured out how not to make that happen. So did the russians. The chinese have it so the rushing rockets up into space and they're cutting corners. And you know they're making just inferior rockets and there's one booster stage that doesn't fire off properly and so this is chunk. That's that's tumbling back to earth. Now it's going eighteen thousand miles an hour and it's so erratic they don't know where it's gonna last. It's it circles the earth every ninety minutes. It's going very fast. A lot of calculations evolve evolving. They won't know until it's pretty close to possibly landing somewhere else. It's about a hundred and Hundred i think feet long. Yeah yeah of course it may not be they bring not one hundred feet left when it finally hit some of them may burn up or it may break up. But we'll see what. Alex just a cheap chinese rocket is brutus. Memory mentioned earlier this week. Debra mark that they were looking for people to kill bison at grand canyon horrible story they want people to thin the herd they put out a call because the by sinner bit destructive to the ecology there and it was the decision by the government perhaps the herd has to be cold. Well i got bad news for you. Debra mark more bad news forty five thousand people want to kill the by so you kidding that was the number of applications that came in within days from all over the country. You don't get out much to you know i. I'm very entrepreneuring. Dozens box it's dead. There's only they're only allowing about a dozen hundred eighty five people wanna kill these animals at certain rich dolly junior twenty nine year old farmer who lives in gettysburg pennsylvania. Said i'm keeping my fingers crossed. And i'm one of that of the twelve. You can't win unless you play. There's a arts. they're not good. You will find out on may seventeenth if you have been selected and by the way you have to get up to eight thousand feet. That's where the are that needs to be called grand. Canyon's north rim. How many do you get to kill you one. You can't wind motor. What yes motorized. You can't use motorized transportation on get it only twelve winners. They're going right so they're killing twelve. That's that's worthless. Now come cummock say it says at the end of the story that do much good. I don't know whether this is just a well. It's it's not overpopulated. Volunteer can take one animal out of the three hundred to five hundred estimated to be roaming the far north reaches of arizona so with the goal population of two hundred. I don't see how taking twelve out is going to make any difference. It's he's got to let a lot more hunters and other. It's not really a hunt. Because you really not gonna stalk them or there's no chase so what's the what's the probably just stand there grazing and you got them down to five hundred hundred that many. I imagined the proportion to two hundred. I imagined the proportions all wrong. I imagine that there were thousands and thousands of bison and that they were gonna want to kill some A few thousand. Why don't they just ship them to yellowstone. Well it's funny. You said that because they did ship ninety animals to native american tribes around the country. Yeah i don't see twice as you. This is almost for show. Why do you hold a nationwide killing lottery. When you just hit you can't load twelve bison and truck them somewhere else take and what how could twelve bison make a difference anyway. Make a difference. Nobody would notice matic. Mallory who's an archaeologist in flagstaff arizona. Something's wrong flight to do this using volunteers as cost effective logical and opportunity to harvest organic meat. Well yeah there's that can keep the ecosystem in check by twelve. Yeah now there's some screwy about this story. Emma that makes no sense even going to. They're going to give out well or than that. I mean only five thousand forty applicants. I total of people that want to do this. And it says they will select twenty five names through a lottery vet them and ford finalist. The park service the first twelve to submit a packet of information requested by the park service will be part of the volunteer program which will happen in the fall so it sounds like we picked bench really complicated. And it's going to take six months and at the end they're gonna kill twelve. Bison i know this government for you so they need to rethink this whole thing bad idea anyway. She doesn't want them kill me now. Twelve would be within the margin of error of counting. Wouldn't nigga. I don't get it either unless there's something they're not telling us they are gonna shoot. I keep reading the same story over and over again. I i'm going to look you have a big backyard. Can't you grab a few. Let them your place by sending his yard animals and decides to stampede through his kitchen crazy dog guide after it would be great. The bison i'd be tempted to eat never mind that i would have a gore. My neighbors pet this coming up next. Alex will be on to talk about that. Chinese rocket falling to earth. Johnny kane debra. Mark has news. kfi am six forty.

John & Ken Show Hour 4 (03/04)

"A major milestone in the push to recall governor news on the campaign now has a million signatures. I made a bad mistake. And i expect more from myself. That's why we started this vaccinate. All fifty eight campaign recognizing that all californians need to be included in this vaccination process and that we can't leave folks behind we're gonna see faster administration. You'll see that i'll be accountable. You will david. Now here's the latest update on rico's signatures versus people vaccinated from john and ken. We've got a million nine hundred twenty seven thousand signatures with less than a week to go. The deadline that the recall Leaders have is march tenth march tenth. They want all the signatures in. Then they'll spend a week Counting the final batch and They have to send everything into the registrar's office by march seventeenth. There that means get on it. Recalled gavin twenty twenty dot. Com will be very excited about a week from now if we can announce that they did hit the two million signature markets looking. Good twenty three thousand. Where such on the vaccine front. Where nine million eight hundred and sixty thousand and we still a big move from yesterday. It's no we've actually dropped A few places in the rankings We're we still. I've only used three quarters of our supply. So they're still about two and a half million plus vaccines somewhere We've injected seventeen percent of the population at least once. Seven point seven percent twice and We did about two hundred and fifty six thousand vaccines in the past day. Where in thirty. Fourth place i think. Yesterday we were in twenty sixth. We'll have more on the new move towards vaccine equity new submitted appearance today along with the state health director dr mark alley to talk about vaccine equity and the metric they will apply. It also is being tied into reopening the county's more. Yeah and i. Which i think is really crazy so now. They're they changed the rules again. They're not gonna go by cases yesterday. Steve said they were gonna go by case rates per one hundred thousand and we were getting close to moving up at tier. And now we're gonna get stuck in the tier until a certain number of minorities get vaccinated. What what if they don't show up at a big enough number then what everybody you know. Everybody communities forty percent of the vaccine supply is being put aside now for these zip codes will but this restricts explain the number of customers business can have. How can you do that. How do you restrict the number of customers because there's a community on the other side of town where the people aren't showing up in great enough numbers that's lunacy. Another recall that started is the one that will may be removed. George gascon from office the county. Da he only took office in december. He immediately issued a bunch of directives. It's shocking i think even people that voted for him because he's talking about reducing prison sentences for even cop killers child killers. You're kidding me. This is what we're finding out. He has the style that everything no exceptions so doing particular directive that eliminates sentence enhancements and sentence enhancements particularly with guys with long criminal records is what makes make sure that person stays behind bars and gas gone has been famous for saying to. This study showed that excessive. Sentencing practices have just exacerbated recidivism leading to more victims of crime. Studies says over and over again when he's asked this question he just sites. This mysterious studies that shows that incarcerating people imprisoning people will only bring us more crime which is silly mostly found out in the one thousand ninety s past three strike. No and sure we always. We already lived through this well. Most studies show the opposite guests going lying and to talk about this. We're gonna talk to michael rush. I hear the president of the criminal justice legal foundation who. We've had on many times before michael. Hey guys thank you for coming on again. Talk to us about the studies okay. gas gone throws out things like research shows and studies. Show the only study that we're aware of is a unpublished manuscript. In two thousand fifteen that has been pulled from the site where it was posted. Because they're still editing it so he's got nothing and there is a mountain of evidence including the university of chicago. The new york times Indiana university center of criminal justice many many other studies. That have come out. And as well as you've mentioned our own experience in california when you lock up repeat offenders for longer periods of time you get a whole lot less crime right. That's the line and they set in this unpublished manuscript. That was taken off the Website was not even peer reviewed. Nobody else really investigated. What's in this manuscript. And that's the one guest on points at What you write is that publicly available. Data from the department of justice. Show that the number of crimes committed in the years that california enacted and enforced tough. Sentencing crime rates dropped dramatically. it added up toll. Almost a million fewer victims between between ninety two and twenty eleven a. That's just comparing those two years. In the years between ninety two and twenty eleven th the crime rate was dropping each time. It's many millions of victims. That was just an example of what the crime wasn't twenty eleven and what it was in nineteen ninety two so many many many californians did not become victims. Well over a million in the it probably around five million so he he's he's blowing smoke and we know this because for years these politicians with come out and talk about the crime rate is down. It's a wonderful thing but then you point out and we know this well in two thousand eleven that's when they started abandoning the tougher sentencing prisoner dumping bill. Ab one of nine. That's the one that turned the prisoners over to the county and they didn't do much with them when they violated parole and probation. So talk about that too well starting with a ab one zero nine and then following along with prop forty seven which gascons supported and prop fifty seven which jerry brown pushed out there We've taken away all of the measures that were adopted in the eighties. And the nineties to deal with the crimewave that occurred there and that was the result of a sixties and seventies compassionate sentencing policies in california which increased the homicide rate by three hundred percent in fifteen years. So yeah we've got a lot of people in prison because we grab these guys with these new sentencing laws and they're repeat offenders violent offenders and of course you have to hold onto them. Is it common sense that if you have guys who are constantly committing salins you put him away. They can't commit the felonies so fewer victims right. You let them out. They're gonna commit felonies. Well there's a couple of things that really bugged me out about gas going also. He lies about what victims groups think. There's a phony victim group. Funded by soros in san francisco. That has claimed that they want hug. All the inmates in all of their members don't agree with sentencing and whatever and then the real victim groups around california some of which have been here for thirty five years. Say no we want the full weight of the law to fall on these guys. It isn't this one of the tactics that they're using because they've declared a war on our culture our civilization. And so what you do is you. You fund a phony victims group knowing the media will cover it as the other side of the story. You know exactly. They gave the media place to go. You find you pay off some some idiot and he puts up an unpublished manuscript reviewed. And then gasco could cite it and confused the reporters. This is on purpose because they want money up the argument. Sure and this. This gas going is just the latest soros injected district attorney and something the la times won't report. Larry krassner and philadelphia is presiding over the highest murder rate in twenty five years. Kim fox in chicago. Police say it's the bloodiest year in chicago in two decades. We know how chelsea putin's doing san francisco. That's a crime. Ridden open sewer. No one wants to go there. So this what soros has been doing in. The biggest plum was los angeles and he gave two point. Two five million dollars to put this joker in this guy who has never prosecuted a case and i don't think he's ever treated any victim nicely ever and his entire career and now he's slapping him in the face and all the directives of horrendous but michael d think one of the worst. Is this Stripping away the sentencing enhancements because that's getting most blowback from prosecutors well from a legal standpoint also their strongest argument the state law says. You shall do these things when you've got a defendant with these kinds of priors who's up against the new charge of something violent or serious So gas going is telling his deputies. Some of them have been there twenty five thirty years that you are. I want you to ignore state. Law not enforce state law. Well excuse me but that's what prosecutors are supposed to do so the lawsuit that the da's the deputies have filed is got traction definitely traction in that that area and we're gonna join that case on appeal and get it upheld. It's going to be a crap. Shoot before the california supreme court. Because you know it's five to to newsom jerry brown judges but We're gonna take our best shot at this. Just cannot happen. Probably the best solution recall gab. George gone and gavin newsom. Sure got go lump them together. A package deal see. We get a both about the same time. Thank you very much. Michael russia for joining us. My pleasure thank you guys. He's the president of the criminal justice legal foundation with good rebuttal to george gas gone. Remember that recall can't start officially until the weekend when he's had three months in office but we'll be talking to those folks next week. The website is recall george gas cone dot com and then this recalled gavin two thousand twenty dot. Com janis fever. That's right recall. John and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt. Ken chiampou kfi am six. Forty five everywhere on the iheartradio app to the new vaccine equity metric after the news at five thirty which is talking to michael russia for criminal justice legal foundation rebutting any argument. And it's all phony george. Gascoyne has the incarceration only makes crime worse putting people in prison. The italian that'll cages. It's a game. It's a game rhetoric and propaganda and undercover financing. I don't think people know how the real world were expanding the real world when you have a when you're a billionaire george soros is and you have some kind of obsession who knows why is eighty eight years old. And he likes to fund these far left wing organizations whose goal is to dismantle law and order and civilization and everything that america's based on earth any civilized western countries based on and. Look at portland for example. Right that that same tika that's funded by soros. Maybe other people like him with a lot of money is a lot of silicon valley multi millionaires and billionaires. Who were into this as well again. Who knows why but they are doing it because the money is real. I mean geico really got a couple of million dollars from george soros and sorrows did also finance the philadelphia. Da the chicago da. The san francisco. Da they all have the same goal to dismantle the justice system and let the criminals out and if the murder rates go sky high. They don't care you're dealing with sociopaths. Here they don't care. There's no remorse. There's no empathy. there's no regret it doesn't exist in their brains and what they do and what we've mentioned before they really create fake victims groups victims families. Who want the felons released They'll come up with a fake study and there's enough left wing crackpots in the media who start publishing these these fake studies or interviewing these fake. They'll publish them. They just mentioned them. Because i put them in the quote and they make it sound like it's legit because i quoted the politician who cited thus study. But did anybody go look at it subversive and this has always been around but what they have on their side now is a lot of these progressive woke journalists. And that's what's changed the equation and social media. They're able to get out their message. Much more broadly. And you could see that. A lot of america's a bunch of dumb klux. You got cunanan people on one side. You got these. Progressive woke wack jobs on the other side. And that's why we're getting more and more chaos now because everybody's getting influenced by all sorts of insanity. Well you know. Perfect timing for this story from san francisco a place that has seen obviously an uptick in crime. Even though a lot of people have moved out during the pandemic but one thing that has really exploded car break. it's so k. Pix in the bay area channel five sent a reporter out there to cover the break ins in a neighborhood called twin peaks. Here's the story. I just kept my hands up like this. Kpi five reporter. Don ford was on the story yesterday and again today and was preparing to interview nearby homeowners white luxury sedan with four men inside pulled up. The car came up here while we're about to do an interview. Three guys jumped out. One had a gun. Put it up to my face and said we're taking a camera for a veteran. Journalists said the whole encounter with glock in his face took less than a minute. My whole thought at the moment was less become. Let's not get this guy excited. He's got the gun. I don't so you take the camera. It's yours buddy. This homeowner stood very still as the scene unfolded in front of him. I just looked. And i said i'm not gonna get shot today. No one was injured but everyone was shaken journalists. Settle down yet. The homeowner says safety of the neighborhood has to be addressed and priority going forward. You want to have that for open space. We want that too but protect us. We shouldn't pay the penalty and the price for for that action that sf mta caused upon us. Well that was andrea barber reporting. As soon as san francisco supervisor rafael mandal men heard about what happened to dawn. He began tweeting saying it was ridiculous and unacceptable but not unexpected in san francisco. It's troubling it's concerning. It was extremely as a crime And it reinforces. I think concerns. That i'm hearing from my constituents in that area man says he is working to make sure the city adopts better strategies to stop repeat offenders. Reporter goes out to cover an increase in crime and then they get robbed themselves of keller. I'd like to know 'cause. I can't watch channel five in san francisco. I wonder how they've been covering all the mayhem. Are they a bunch of woke progressives. But it's the senate has spiraled into the sewer. Have they covered all the all the people getting out of prison. All the Homelessness with the the drug addicts and the feces and the need up the conditions. Set this emotion. Yeah i mean had they taken a an journalists are activists. Now they're just activists for all the ma'am have been activists to get the city back to being. The beautiful place used to be not too long ago do they. Cover the degradation of the city. Do they put pressure on the politicians to the inform the public about who they're voting for and why it is direct. Your vote is directly connected to the horrific conditions in san francisco. But do they just wake up because one of their reporters got gut in the face. Because you know when something happens to a reporter it's way more important than if it happens to somebody else right when we come back. Oh talk about the new health equity vaccine metric This is crazy so the latest insanity can't keep up with the john and ken kfi. I'm john and ken show pinch boats. Kfi six forty life everywhere on the iheartradio app. Me going to say this one. More time. this week the boy slide is tomorrow one. Eight seven seven moist eighty six one. Eight seven seven six six four seven eight eight six last call to get your messages into maybe be included in tomorrow's playback of calls during the five o'clock hour. I've already notified. I've already notified the bob members. John we are throwing somebody in the dumpster tomorrow. So he prepared for that to hacking dumps. You'll be at this time tomorrow. We'll select somebody from the world of news deserves to go in the dumpster. Well california's you've probably heard his reserving forty percent of covid nineteen vaccine for filling the blank underserved disadvantaged needy newbies in other words. It's it's it's the person needy think of them as just emotionally needy. It's mostly the hispanic neighborhoods. Because yes they have had the most cases. Yeah the death rate. There is three times The white death rate the case rate is a far far higher It's been that way since the first month it's the same story over and over and over again because they're they're very very densely populated. There's too many people living in two small an area plus. They have a lot of jobs where they have to run into a lot of people plus from the stories we got. There wasn't a whole lot of of a whole lot of the people obeying all the rules. We heard stories in the la times party. Yeah even even even a gatherings. Yeah there's even a calmest hispanic communist. Who wrote about that. You know he he. He went to his old neighborhoods and yet they. They're partying a lot. There's a lot of street fairs in the parks in harvard communities. And you're right. Yeah clued south. La the eastside. Koreatown chinatown compton south east. La county the eastern san fernando valley santa ana. They have a lot of the same views that a lot of the rural trump's supporters have and were mocked. a lot of people in the poor areas didn't believe the virus was real. they deaths. that doesn't make sense when you consider that they suffered the most deaths. They must have known somebody this. This was early on this was early on when they were acting up and racked up early on when the virus was acting up. Oh see when early on no early on with the virus they they just thought. Remember what you said yesterday. I thought it was a rich person's disease because it i was very early on was The rumor going around particularly even central america and mexico that they thought it was just something rich people get because the early on the first cases were coming from people took vacations to say italy and may have picked it up there a lot of have fatalistic attitudes if if you believe god is going to take care of you and protect you. Whatever god's will is going to be they also and this is again in the la times many times and tv stories. They've got a strong family culture so they were gathering together on the weekends for their birthday parties for all the celebrations. No matter what so. There's a lot of reasons for this. The what now doing is if we don't get enough people vaccinated in those specific neighborhoods and it's a small area when it comes to square mileage of the county then the whole county remains closed down to some extent and this is going to really harm. Businesses need more customers because right now most businesses are open the restaurants only for outdoor dining. But you can only get in ten percent of your customers or twenty five percent of your customers. And and and what what what they need is to be fully reopened in. That comes by moving up in those stupid tears the orange and yellow tier or moving to texas. I yeah i think it is so grossly unfair and wrong and should be illegal and unconstitutional tall. Dopp tippety due to hold up heads because they can't get enough vaccines in the neighborhoods. Where where they've got virus problems. I don't see the connection between the two no but it makes sense to attack. The problem with the problem is worse. But but why would you keep. Everybody closed down for it. There's no connection between the tips. The virus can travel it but it hasn't. It did look at the store. People in the wealthier communities can stay inside work from home right to isolate themselves from the spread. Why should those businesses in those communities have to stay closed or stay restricted. Why there's no logical reason for it not to mention that in florida where they have very little restrictions. They don't have any worse numbers right. Here is governor. Deputy do talking about this new vaccine echo de metric and we are committing now as a state to provide that overlay in lower court trial of the healthy place index with forty percent of all of the allocated vaccines targeted at communities that have had this disproportionate burden. That's a way we're gonna make real progress as lates to advancing our cause this 'cause i think all of us in california that's the cause of equity. So that's what we're announcing. Stop a second stop you see. It's not the cause of reducing the deaths reducing the hospitalizations. That's why things were locked down. They didn't want to overload the hospitals. Remember they didn't want to overload the icu. Units they want to run out of ventilators right. They're always worried about running out of things ventilators. I see you beds will that we don't have any of that problem anymore. Now they switched it and they say well. Now it's equity. This is the 'cause they keep changing the rules after we have met well all the desired metrics. How are they gonna make sure just. Because they're holding back forty percent of the vaccine supply for the zip codes to make sure that it gets used. They can't if people will not come out of their homes to get injected. What are you going to do about it. Forty percent of the vaccines. They are so angry. They are so angry that people not in these neighborhoods are getting vaccinated that people not in these neighborhoods go to the website. Make the appointment and go and get the vaccine so now. They're coming up with punitive measures. They're taking away forty percent of the vaccines. Okay fine but now. They're closing all the businesses or restricting them severely until the people in these neighborhoods get vaccinated. Then you go read the la times and it turns out people in these neighborhoods. Do not trust the government. They do not trust medicine. They have historical reasons why they don't trust the government medicine. They don't believe the media again. If you interview trump people everybody has a good laugh. Trump people with those beliefs but this is a belief system that is very prevalent in these neighborhoods. At explains in part why the virus spread so much and why the vaccination rate is so low the government the media the medical establishment has no credibility with a lot of people for whatever reason but that is primarily. Why they're not coming out in great numbers now the people that say on the west side of la or in the suburban areas. They do believe the science in it. They do believe the media more or they trust in the government more so they say okay if they tell me the vaccines go to work. I believe that that is not a shared as does not as widely shared attitude on the east side of la. So what are you gonna do about it. So you're gonna close everybody down. Four hundred and sixty seven square miles of the county gets closed down a restricted. Because you have a narrow area where you cannot convince the residents to trust you. We got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi do you see what the ceo of cnn's parent company said. No you're being manipulated with the news. And he said is name is what is his name. Here jason killer. He's warnermedia. ceo turns out. The pandemic is a pretty big part of the new cycle. And that's not going away anytime soon. It turns out. It's really good for ratings. I had read a headline gloating pandemic numbers right. So that's why they do all the doom bait. That's why they constantly promote horror stories. As because you watch it's distorted it'll some cases. It's not true it's exaggerated but it manipulates your emotions. And now they really gotta go right pandemic well. So they're going to do. That was the context of the quote because he was talking about you know cnn and a post trump world and it turns out the pandemic is really ratings right so yeah turns out. Today story came out that up at the oakland alameda county coliseum. They they gave thousands of people not enough vaccine. They believe it's not going to make a difference other words. The dosage was too small but they don't think it's going to be a problem in terms of the efficacy of the vaccine but whoops. They made a little mistake. That's one of those pods. That fema setup. Yes oh yes. That's a female on the oakland coliseum. Right for the underserved fema underserved. Didn't they a story. That's not going to make our vegan really too pleased. I think this is twice ko twice on feeling very picked on well. There's a family from southern california. I think it's a father and two kids. They've been on a long road trip for since july joy last year there visiting every single in and out burgers in the united states in and out burgers all of three hundred and sixty three of them fries. Done three hundred six fraser acceptable. The fries vegan actually cooked an animal. Fennell that's what i've been told dog you better do. I haven't had any. I will do. But that's you don't like them cooked in vegetable. John get the well-done crispy potato sticks. They're really good number. Otherwise they're they're flaccid of the west they are. They are chalky kind of that. Not something you want. And i can't figure out from this story on even clicked the link for their pictures if they're If they're not working going to school they're just drive around the country outside. Maybe they're not allowed to like eating burgers that much yes. That's something you do john. You would do that trip of all the trips you can. Do you burger every day. I would enjoy it a lot. He loves driving. You know sometimes. I wish i could stop life. Just everybody freeze and then i go do off. Something really pleasurable free. Why does it have to freeze that. Nobody else i'm gonna fall behind. Ally got to worry about not making money. Don't have to worry about tending to relationships own after worry about missing out on stuff i just wanna go and experience something for year and then i'll come back and we just still sheep hurting birding very exciting various fantasies. I hope to lay in a field and naked wearing that rove the leper laying in visual. Yeah back to the road. You got the leopard robe for me okay. That was your little present way. You said ken. God god no no you gotta say. I'm the one that did tonight. That's right so tim conway here. If you froze everybody. Would you be tempted to like inappropriately. Touched some people. Take some people right and i found out why the lovely one Deborah is was pissed when hours were extended. I guess Two three times a week at seven thirty.

John & Ken Show Hour 1 (01/29)

"King show janko concerto by the iheartradio. Welcome everybody here. We are wondering what happened. Johnny cannito five. That's because we're standing by for the verdict. That of minneapolis In case you don't know because this is on every channel everywhere. It was probably on every station around the country. It's shades of the o. J. verdict from nineteen ninety five but when we learned earlier today that this jury had reached a decision in about ten hours of deliberating was pretty certain we were getting guilty. I don't think there was much doubt about that. I thought that too. But i remember. That's what everybody thought after. Oj too because that was things have changed since then in those twenty five plus years back then people were saying you're right. Oh a quick verdict. They agreed quickly probably guilty. And then of course though jay was found not guilty psycho following trials more lately. It seems possible when you get this decision particularly in a case with the video and the nine and a half minutes on the neck and the whole i just figured but i didn't know that wasn't following this one hundred percent closely was that they could find him guilty on all counts right so they found him guilty on all three charges against three different versions of killing a guy second degree murder third degree. Murder and secondary man's second degree murder is that shoving caused his floyd's death while committing or attempting to commit a related felony in this case third degree assault then third degree murder that he caused Floyd's death during an act. That was imminently dangerous to others. Evincing a depraved mind without regard for human life two slightly different versions of killing a guy then second-degree manslaughter. He caused his death by culpable negligence. Created unreasonable risk consciously took a chance of causing death or great bodily harm so In the end end up dead all three ways. Now i mean. I was thinking about this morning here. You know the defense causes. Death was the big thing here and the defense was trying to say. Ali had underlying conditions. He was using drugs. That could've killed him. But i'm thinking. If george floyd goes into that store with his fake twenty dollar bill nobody ever calls the cops and walks away. I don't think he dies that day. No it's obvious he dies because there's a shona neck and all over him and they're holding them for that long. I may have had those conditions been better health and not on drugs. He might have survived. What was going on there. But what they did certainly was a big factor in his death. Walsh alvin would have stayed dhec logger. Fy hat to eight not only got off after nine minutes. Because floyd was dead if floyd was alive And going into twelve or thirteen minutes would stay on top of like this. This this there's nothing to this trial there. Nothing to the case you watch the nine minute video. it's over. he did it. he's guilty. Shopping killed floyd. There's nothing to debate. That's why the defense was getting lost in You know how much what what is artery clogging level was and all that but this was back to the rodney king case. Though there was a video there maybe it was more crude for its time and people also thought alright. They went too far here. They gotta be found guilty and they were not though. That's where people were a little bit apprehensive here. I found a poll and this was say twentieth. Okay this dating yesterday. It was Harris hill harris poll stirred by the hill which is political website and Twenty percent of the public thought show was innocent. Forty-seven percent guilty thirty three percent. Not sure what's the innocent number. Twenty twenty thousand. Yeah among trump's supporters. There's a law and order police. Love and boot-licking crowd which is just you know he was a bad guy and it was a bad day for him and Yeah they're not guilty. They did what they had to do. Thirty four percent of trump supporters thought. He was innocent. I would've guessed higher. And then i is interesting to you. Talked about it being on all the stations Eighteen percent watched the trial. Fifty five percent did not watch it but read or saw something about it Twenty seven percent heard nothing about it. Twenty-seven percent was was news to end. There was a trial so there's always people that don't that's a lot of people. Tens of millions of people are paying attention. They don't follow anything. No if they don't care more glued on entertainment news or whatever's going on their family and their lives. It's a paid attention to any of that. I remember running into a friend. How many years ago was it now. There was some big terrorist attack. Right and i guess she had a lot of things going on in her personal life so we got together. I mentioned and i can't remember which attack it wasn't. What are you talking about what attack. I'm like really how did you miss. That story wasn't nine eleven but it was something in the last five years. A pretty high level of media trista. Don't turn on the tv news side. how are you gonna no. That's actually writes. Actually a nice place to be. Sometimes i i think about like why other than i have this stupid job. Why do i have to know what's going on in the world all the time. Why do i have to be aware of everything. P because people are curious. But you're right. But what i notice is the more people know about the world more educated. Everybody is i. Don't think often set you up on edge now. what we're waiting for. Besides the sentencing other officers. Who will be tried is whether or not they'll be appeal based on maximum waters. That was the big story yesterday. In case you missed it to congresswoman making some comments over the weekend that people wanna rise up and get more confrontational. It's gotta be murder. Gotta be murdered basically. She's threatening a riot if you don't see it. Her way in murder not the manslaughter murder and manslaughter but that was her her statements in the streets of minneapolis which even led the judge to say. This could be grounds for appeal. He made that statement in court yesterday. So i'm sure they'll jump on that. I don't know that they'll win on. That appeals basis to play. His defense will not. Even the judge agreed that this is grounds for possible. You know that's one of those murky areas and it depends on the attitude of a judge. I mean to me you would have to have some proof that the jurors were affected that that in their alleged sequestration they heard about maxine waters that they even know who she is you know. She's a big lab here in la but does anybody. The rest of the country really knows she is or care now would in fact what most people even believe she's a congresswoman after watching her for five minutes. Would you actually say oh. That's a congressman really k. Gets really work if if if you say microphone in the in the asylum. That's right you say that's a congresswoman. Okay i'll go with you on that. Sure down she was really crazy with trump the first year or two and then it seemed like she kind of disappeared from making public statements about trump's went back to counting her money. Well the sentencing is kind of complicated but here we go. In minnesota's second degree murder carries a maximum sentence of forty years in prison. Third degree murder punishable by up to twenty five years in prison second degree manslaughter punishable by up to ten years in prison and that all up. It's a lot of time however we're talking about concurrent it's one crime though. I know harry charges but he only killed one guy once they recommend much less time for offenders who have no criminal history and chauvin the has no criminal. The the amount of time the average guy in minnesota spence in jail or in prison when he's been convicted of those murder charges as twelve and a half years. It's the average amount of time because you don't get sentenced to the full load normally and there's parole and good behavior and george gascon would have met wednesday the says minnesota inmates typically served two-thirds of their sentence behind bars. The remaining time they supervised release. The i think i think the prosecutors now will. There's going to be hearing on enhancements for the sentencing. Yeah that's something we were talking to. Which is which is the thing that that Dascomb doesn't believe yeah. I'm waiting for the first I cop on trial. It gets convicted. La although that almost never happens obviously but what what guests if guests go. Go back into believing in enhancements right if it was a cop that did the killing. Yeah what are the enhancements. Has to do the fact that this is kind of odd. If there was a minor who witnessed what was going on between floyd police officers ain't there was a nine year old in the crowd remember. The crowd was telling the police officers get off. Get off him. That went on a long time and the thing. I always remember about that. Video looking at the still photos was that show fans face was like so what he's he's he's off into the distance like he'll be doing my job here. We've got a problem. He's a complete psychopath. He has psychopath face. He ciller s serial killer. Is it just looking. He had no expression in court today. He just kind of nodded his head. Like okay that's about right. He has absolutely no remorse empathy. Feeling it could. I mean almost people tops have killed people right and they've killed them at of a fear that they're gonna die or that someone else is gonna die and they killed them because they're angry right. Maybe at end of a chase you had beatings like in the ride. Comments questioning comes at a fear comes to anger comes out some hot blooded emotion. You didn't have that here yet. A cold blooded guy with his knee on the neck for nine minutes. No reaction crowd yelling at him. Heckling them tell him to stop doesn't care today just got hit with three major felonies. Guilty guilty guilty. I had a mask on. If you took the mask off you look the same. Reaction doesn't bother them now he's probably gonna go to prison. Just getting fights for the next fifteen years talking about the use of force. But we're talking about the point for which you have control. You need to end what you're doing and take this person away and instead they're all just lying there with their knees on them for that long time and you know he's saying he can't breathe and eventually he's not making any sounds because you effectively killed him. Chauvin didn't care costs over the other three. They could have done something they were often. Chauvin was in charge. So i think they all felt deferential to him he's going to lead the way here but really even the crowds telling you all right enough. They don't wanna get 'cause because apparently floyd was resisting at first but most of us are watching this video. It's over but we're talking. He has a big guy. That was apparently show vince. Excuse we didn't know he was so big he could've done anything you know what you know drives so much human behavior. We talked about this yesterday. About all the Timid frightened parents at all these private schools. Who don't want to rise up against all the woke nonsense. That's going on in the private schools and then the public schools. You have all these timid parents who don't want to rise up against the idiot teachers who refused to work the union the union and so people are fearful younger. Cops are fearful of taking on a veteran cop because that veteran cop will Then spread the word though enforce the code and these guys are gonna be ostracized for the rest of their careers. It's social ostracization. Losing your position socially within the tribe which which is what terrifies people boast. And that's what paralyzed. These three cops cared more about their position within the police department that they cared if george floyd lived or died. They didn't care if he died what they cared was. They didn't want to have a black mark against them for questioning the superior officer but in this era now a body cams and videos everywhere you have to kind of rethink that position because you could end up in prison too. And i think these other guys will with this conviction. The they're not going to be. I don't know what the charges are against the three other officers or former officers. But it's pretty clear now that if the jury found this guy guilty of all three charges these other cops are going to be found. All i see in life and what the the woke heads are using as their weapon is making people fearful of social embarrassment and being ostracized being fired being the they're being social retribution. That is the main weapon. The wo- holes are using and it's the main weapon that that seems to work. They do this in communist china. The government actually has something called social credit card. They keep track of what they think. Are the good and bad things you do and if you don't if you don't Have enough points. You're gonna be in trouble. Socially in your community said its achim. Ian forced down with social media. That social media would be difficult to enforce a lot of this nonsense but now but now they can't something else that came up last year when we were covering this case and i haven't seen any updates on. It was whether or not chauvin. And floyd really knew each other. Remember that story that they both worked at that. I think casually than they have because someone charleston's actions. Were you know. Because i like i know this guy at alaikum and i got a chance now on a police action to To lean on his neck for awhile may obey. Have a really really got more on that. Because how well. They knew each other not. They had any disputes at work. Right because that that could be spun into feeling like chauvin had a reason. So then who's beater wouldn't cover that. But if he if he and floyd had a bad relationship. Because floyd did saw that it was racial or just right exactly. Well that's the first thing right then. Now you're making it. A personal dispute and the media wants to be entirely racial dispute. Maybe it was but maybe maybe personal and maybe part of the personal back and forth was floyd actually did something to shelve to make a mat. And so that story can't be told because that would chauvin. Perhaps in a sympathetic light yeah. I wasn't looking for any lights. I was just curious as to their history. If there is any we just know they worked at the same place right but air when he was off duty as a security. But imagine making this up. If we found out that floyd was actually In involved in some aggressive acts towards chauvin was an a hole to shaw than and chavez just Like kind of buried resentment and was waiting for his moment then a net. That's not something in the news. Media would report just wouldn't understand. I don't think it came up Either prosecution side of defense site in the trial. There was no mention of that The fact that they were both working at that club yeah. They may not have been anything there any kind of a week defense. By the way but it wasn't a defense even through in tailpipe emission this thing as a possible factor. In when you know when you start laughing at stuff. Oh yeah. the police car is running there. There was a lot of carbon monoxide coming out and that that contributed floyd floyd underlying health conditions. He currently had heart disease and there was drug use. Dt's you when you're little kids and it's kind of a stupid thing to teach kids. There's two sides to every story. No there's not there's only one side what actually happened. Well there's always two sides of the story but some people lie a lot. yeah one of them's ally. Everybody will always defend themselves. Ally truth is relative notes. Not there's something that actually happened. And in this case chauvet actually put his knee and and and just smothered the life out of george floyd and there is no other story and there is no defense and that's why it's hard for me to read about or watch coverage because everybody feels a lot of time with made up nonsense. What about the coronary arteries being blocked there. And it's like shut up card area arteries. Well now. the impending question for the rest of the afternoon tonight was what does this lead to in the streets of places like minneapolis and even here in southern california. Nobody should be aggrieved right so if you said yesterday they'll probably still go out there because the professionals who want to destroy things he's convicted on all counts. What the protests. They look what they've been doing in portland worth a celebration for about burning sofas. They've been they've burning a portly for nine months for what nobody even knows people in the morning and they gather at night and they they brought a building down. It's like some kind of religious ritual. Now nobody knows why no doubt in portland. They'll be doing stuff so troublemakers are going to trouble. Gang members are going to commit gang crimes people who liked to steal stuff. You know if there's a bunch of guys and they wanna steal Some nikes they're going they're going to smash a shoe store and steal the nikes. Got nothing to do with. George floyd derek chauvin. It's like they they want mayhem. And they're they're going to say the police gonna stop us tonight. Are we gonna get destroyed. Destroyed neighborhood because Garcetti school with it. Like he was with fairfax last spring. Which neighborhood Can we destroy is permitted tonight. We'll be checking in with steve gregory on the situation. I don't know if you saw beverly hills. Overnight put up all their blockades barriers again in certain street really hills is. They're ready for the worst. They're unbelievable no homeless people. They put up with no looting or violence. It happens once and then after that never happens again. We have mark remillard. Abc news for kfi in minneapolis at the courthouse. He'll join us right after the news at three john and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt and ken. Chiampou kfi am six point five everywhere on the iheartradio app. We'll be speaking to mark rub lard. He is with abc news for kfi right after three. He's been covering the entire trial of derek chauvin in the death of george floyd and in case you missed. It came down less than an hour ago. He was found guilty on all three charges against him. To charges involving murder second third degree and then the second degree manslaughter. The jury spent three minutes deliberate. It was about ten hours. They started yesterday late in the day and finished up today. So the sentencing. We don't win. it'll probably be could be months from now and then we have the trial of the other. Three police were involved on. Well you and. I've always compared this to kelly. Thomas haven't we well as another reason. I everybody comes. Here's it's ten years ago now. Yeah everybody kept asking me. What do you think what do you think. And everybody thinks that was obviously. Be guilty except a kelly. Thomas scott got off white homeless man. Yeah case during an orange county. The police officers not guilty. I don't believe but it's the same thing they They crush them they crush them and and crush them out of them until he died video of it there was audio of it was brutal. It was horrible. It i in fact they thrashed them. They they gave him a worse. Beating than what. George floyd got. Yes they got. I was unanimous verdict of innocent against the cops I will never have faith in the jury system. I think every single case is just a roulette wheel and You know i. I mean what i what i noticed is. They had a majority of women. they only had two white guys and both of them were under forty. And when i'm when i'm looking at the polls which said that you know thirty. Four percent of trump supporters thought. He was innocent. This is the game you play if you're a judge and prosecutor the defense attorney for For chauvin wasn't wasn't really sharp on had a a jewelry Beat because they they got a jury. I think that would be normally predisposed. Finding showed the guilty and he was guilty but you know people in their biases. It can be on video like the orange county crowd. They saw video with. The police did to kelly. Thomas lake saw their own eyes. But there were cop lovers so forget about it. Yeah i know and you're in you're dealing with victims in both cases where sympathy could be short simply. Because george floyd had a criminal background he was committing a crime with a fake twenty dollar bill and the same thing kelly. Thomas is a homeless guy. Who's got mental illness. That's the problem with these jurors. They think well the police got to do what they gotta do. Sometimes but the situation in minneapolis was just an so well documented for the whole country to hear and and something that nobody ever seen before nobody ever seen a cop put a neon guy until he choke the life out of him for clearly. No reason at some point there was you. Could you could say floyd was resisting in the car beforehand. And he was but we had him down on the ground but that was really that he was just doing that for for for for laughs. Just to enjoy the power of at all. He was on stage the crowd that was was cheering. Him he was. I think he got a thrill out of it just to show off how powerfully was. In the moment he was the man nobody was going to stop him from killing. This guy thinking ever bothered him for a minute with these verdicts. The coles stop crying. Systemic racism. I guess not now know that it just use george floyd it that people use a spectacular events to further an agenda that they already have because they used it to make people took t to make people Cow to all this all this woke ism. We're all supposed to be embarrassed. We're all supposed to be afraid to challenge a brawl. Supposed the backed down and concede. That's what they want. That's what they wanna do with. What was it george floyd. We've had other shooting sense and they try to reinforce this particular social law on us and we're staying part is that this country's become such a big reality show thing right everything now has to be viewed and we have to look at this one trial and for this. This is the litmus test of whether or not america's this one trial this probably another trial going on somewhere in the country right now involving a police officer and perhaps a black man that died in custody. But nobody's covering it. Nobody cares but this one was chosen because video and so much over it wants the media gets into its feeding frenzy because it makes the money everything is now cast like real reality shore in order to manipulate our emotions so they make money and you wouldn't you once you get wise to this. Once you get woke to this that you're being manipulated all day long but people wanna make money off you. Then it's up to you to say all right. I know the game. You're playing. I'm not in i will play. You can try it. You're not going to get to me not gonna pay attention to your nonsense. I'm not going to get worked up. Not gonna give the in to social pressures right. The man that's been there for the whole trial mark remillard. Abc news will join us right after we come back from our news break and we'll give them all the questions that might be on your mind about the verdict today against the former minneapolis police officer derek.

"Coming into the direction of the twenty first century and the public should be outraged when we need to use science invading order to address public safety violent crime data in law. Your data and your fire is dangerous to the communities of down. We are very very concerned about shifts policy not only cans public safety. I am absolutely outraged at the lies. That the forget that feeling the business implementing laws of his own personal choice which we voted. The we've done so in the way that it's much more physically and socially responsible that only if you break the law but he is not doing what he supposed to do with tourney and that is the victim. I believe that he is in the wrong office. Each have been a public defender. He voted in could be voted out. Crime is on a historic low and the story lows in the say. What now for an update on the recall of la county district attorney. George gascon johnny. Kobylt ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty light everywhere on the iheartradio app and if you haven't heard those Clips before those are people who had family members who were victims of crimes. Birders must one of them i think. Murders murders yeah. Tanya and couple of other guests have come on to a one who had a son killed and speaking out against guests general policy of trying to get prisoners out as quickly as possible out of the prison and not prosecuting them begin with giving them light sentences. Not prosecuting them with the full extent. Do the full extent. Laws allow really. I mean he's just making up his own rules as he goes along so he can shorten prison. Time that's his goal. So what we understand from the recall. George guests dot com people. That's the webpage the petition should start. Be available should start to be available very soon. I think may. I may third no later than that. They're going to be available for you to sign if you're in. La county registered voter so the city of whittier passed a resolution the city council declaring no confidence in george gascon. And they're not the first number of other places in the county that have done the same thing jovan. Jerry is the mayor of whittier. We've had him on a number of times in the past. Joe it's good to talk to you again. Gentlemen it's good to talk to you. Get a while now it. This really hit close to home in whittier because it was four years ago. That officer keith. Boyer was murdered at the hands of gang. Member would also murdered his own cousin and tell people what gas goan is doing in this case people who've forgotten yeah well he He is still not yet come to trial. There was a hearing here Or two ago and Part of the problem is that he was Officer boy was killed in cold blood and we need remember that officer his l. I was shot in and wounded Only after he had a bird hits family member just two Two hours before and the ended up over here and we're not sure why. But that's what happened and So the matter is not yet come to trial in the meantime officer whereas mother has since passed away Family is concerned that the people are very concerned. Because it's still very fresh and part of the problem as we understand it and is that This was a death penalty matter. You kill police officer. That's the death penalty. well also Our district attorneys basically said they're not going to prosecute Withdraw on the death penalty Secondly that there. He has a new policy on enhancements That if someone commits a crime and then in addition has committed with a firearm or a gang member or number of other items and they will get further time in addition to conviction of the primary crime He as you know has determined that on enhancements They're not. He's not gonna utilize enhancements longer. And so what that does is the practical matter is in length. And someone's going to be present and i think you said earlier. I think he's got a viewpoint that he wants people out of prison and not in prison and so. The enhancements is really important in australia matter. Because there's not going to be a death penalty then the question becomes well is. Are we looking at life in prison without positive parole. Apparently that's going to be pulled also so but he's as i understand it joined From doing that Surliness on the on the enhancements based upon the lawsuit. That's been brought right him by the deputy district. Attorneys association is own prosecutors. Who were saying. No we're not gonna have any of that and he's been enjoying from going forward and saying no more enhancements until there's a further hearing on that matter so we're still awaiting the trial and But that's related because of the debt because of the lawsuit by his own deputies. He couldn't withdraw the enhancements from cases. That were already charged. But he can't cloture cases decided not to pursue enhancements. I think that's correct right okay. So so the the enhancements in the officer boyer killing are still there only because a judge blocked him. That's correct that's correct and we have a gang member who committed a number one is a gang member number two He committed a primary crime and he used a gun. That's enhancements and there's a couple of other has That go along with that and people live in whittier sense what they think of all this. Yeah i mean we had Last night for purposes of this resolution of no confidence we had Probably a hundred in two hundred and twenty hundred thirty emails of which all but four or five Said this is not. We're not gonna. We're not gonna put up with this. This is wrong and so it's it's still very fresher and whittier People still feel that. We're still waiting for the darn trial and to get all this information out. So it's it's. We're a little bit different than anywhere else in the county los angeles because we had an officer who was born and raised here winter. He was the drum major at the local high school. He came a police officer. Yes went out and came back to the community service. He became the resource officer for the same high. School was near retirement. And he was gunned down. So it's it's It's still very fresh. Yes a lot of people in town knew him was unanimously for this. No the vote. The vote was four to one To Express no confidence and There was lots of Lots of discussion makes for interesting Reality television if anyone wants to watch it. It's on on the internet at the city of what your website but Let me tell you something. That was really appalling. Two guys We had the chief of police in. I we asked him. We said Chief How many arrests have taken place In the last couple of months and whether it's been no prosecution because of the declaration policy that he just put out where he's declining to prosecute on trust past disturbing the peace Criminal threats drug Paraphernalia possession loitering Lord commit prostitution and resisting arrest. There's a number of others and said we've had over two hundred arrests in the last three months and there will be no prosecution based upon this special directive declaration twenty dash seven and. We said you have two hundred arrest. And they're not going to prosecute if that's the case what's the point of even arresting people. I mean candidly. If you're picking and choosing what you're going to file on in terms of taking somebody to court prosecute if you're going to pick and choose then what's the point that's lawlessness. Just decide you're not gonna fall this one or that one. I mean i it. It has ramifications not only for for financial matters but but just for public safety that if somebody comes in trespasses and It's it's a valid trust pass and they're wishing to prosecute and is determined that well we're not going to trust pass based upon director twenty. Oh seven we're not going to prosecute what's what's the point. I mean that's how ridiculous this has gotten. I mean i was outraged. I heard they've made two hundred arrested. There are gonna be no prosecution so we we asked the chief of police say. Why are we doing this then. You said because the law is the law and we are going to follow. We're gonna affect rest and we're gonna do the best job we can if we turn over the da and they choose not to prosecute then then that's that's basically on them and so It's a very thing Morale in but the bottom line is the people of the community and people with your They're not as safe as they should be. I mean we had one of our council members who had a problem with trespassing and drug paraphernalia and That that has been basically file. And it's not gonna be charged. It's not gonna be prosecuted so people the people of whittier. We want them to know what's going on in the people of la county need to know what's going on and and this is just. It's outrageous in my view mayor. Joey appreciate you coming on and make the case. Normally we shake our heads at these politicians. But this time we have a chance to do something with recall. George gas gone dot com and those petitions should start becoming available soon to signed for la county registered voters. I hope there's a big turn out there in whittier. Yeah there will be i. I'm pretty sure thanks guys. I the mayor of whittier giovanetti. More coming up john ken. Kfi show john kobylt. Ken chiampou it's k. f. i. Am six forty light everywhere on the iheartradio app. Right will pass this along. A listener says that a gas on recall group is planning a demonstration. This saturday may first torrent sits from eleven to one torrance. Boulevard trona avenue. They claim they already have two hundred people that plan to attend or more so you want to be more. Active in raising awareness of the upcoming recalled attempt against the la county district attorney. George gascon and normally. I laugh that phrase raising awareness but this is a situation where people don't know da stuff. People don't know if people knew what a i'm sure a lot of them don't even know what a district attorney does But because i think if people knew about gas cone pre election they never would have voted for him. The people don't know candidates they don't pay attention to these things and a lot of negativity surrounding jackie. Lacey that filtered through. And i guess they looked at Gas gascon beings an alternative. Something benign because he has such a boring personality. This seems to be like the new way is to put up someone boring as a frontman and and then sneak in all kinds of radical policies. You're seeing this with joe biden to its same situation. They don't run on this stuff they they they seemed friendly and unthreatening and then they get into office and all kinds of crazy starts getting proposed. It will talk about biden later on. This is a good one. We often complained about the ninth circuit. That's right the. Us appeals court. This is a federal court the ninth circuit but they made the right ruling in this particular case there was a us district court judge by the name of cormac carney. He's been dismissing cases against defendants because he's frustrated that the courts haven't been opened enough due to the pandemic so he did this a number of cases and some of them were appealed by prosecutors. It made its way to the ninth circuit and the ninth circuit overruled. Cormick carney saying look. The pandemic was real. There was a reason to shut the courts for a while. We can't these were criminals who want to cases dismiss. They were prisoners inmates who wanted their release. Because they weren't getting their trial speedily right. That's that's a constitutional right right to a speedy trial. It is and they couldn't get it because the virus closed the courts and this idiot judge said. Oh you're you're right. You're you're free. Your constitutional rights are violated here. Well it's almost comedic but one of the cases that cormack carney dismissed was against a doctor a newport beach doctor who was indicted back in two thousand seventeen on thirty four counts involving illegal distribution of opiates. But you know what had happened this guy before the pandemic was asking for delays. That he got them he successfully sought several delays in his trial while on bail but after the pandemic started now he wanted his right to a speedy trial. You see a little shifty move us. Attorney made and the pills. It's ridiculous. yeah had your trial years ago. You kept delaying it. Now you're trying to use the pandemic as a reason to dismiss the charges because you're not getting speedy justice absurd. It was dr jeffrey. He asked delays eight times in three years. He was granted all eight delays. Then the pandemic comes in now. His lawyer says right. This is what you ask for a trial right now. If we don't get one we're gonna claim we didn't get speedy they should dismiss the case. It's all it's all a chess game so he thought he could move in for the kill and he got this cormac carney character to rule in his favor. The story seems to be that by this guy dismissed five criminal cases and he was apparently. This was personal. Carney was looking at orange county superior court noticing that they were going trials but federal grand juries and federal grand. Juries were meeting but federal court was not in session and apparently got frustrated over this. So we decided to start dismissing cases. Now the story does say. It's true that eventually this could have ramifications of discontinues as john mentioned. It is a right that you get a speedy trial if you want want so you can't keep putting this off forever against some of these defendants but it's also just kind of weird and scary. It should be. It should be a moot point. Now that everything's opening up it should be. I don't know what the federal courts are. But how about that. The right decision from a three judge panel of the ninth circuit court of appeals. You mentioned trump. Got some people in their right. Aid is almost a fifty fifty Bench now they have. I think there's twenty nine justices on the court of appeals and it may be sixteen liberal thirteen conservative. Now it's get three judge panel that might make sites right. They generally for most cases. Pull a three judge panel. So it's a lottery so some of the time you're gonna get a favorable. A favorable set a judges to your case. If there's some kind of political ideology that would decide a case there should be but that that's the way the world is right now. I when we come back another story. That seems unreal but it is true. And we're going to talk about it. It deals with the homeless and it deals with what we've talked about for years. You cannot normalize the behavior or you're really gonna be in trouble coming up next john and ken. Kfi john and ken show john kobylt. Ken chiampou kfi am six. Forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Yup this sad up the moisture is back in two days. Leave your calls at one. Eight seven seven moist eighty six. It is toll free waiting for you. One eight seven seven six six four seven eight eight six coming up after four o'clock craig gravy is going to be on with us. Craig gravy is an executive with rogers and cowan the public relations agency. And you're probably saying well why and why he has got a proposal. Yeah to make us money to try to organize now in los angeles to finally take control back from the city council and the mayor and there's a series of elections coming up and He's about as headed as anybody has been and so he's going to use his marketing abilities which are considerable and his money raising abilities and try to get people inspired to take back the city of los angeles. Hardly anybody votes. Only five percent of the citizens of los angeles voted for eric. Garcetti and you could see how that ended up now and he just wants to see it through a public relations marketing campaign. He could get people to come together and and and clean this place up you know. He's he's had it with the homeless this and and all the rest. So we're gonna talk to craig gravy. Because i've always thought that if there's ever going to be a big change it has to come from people outside of politics. Maybe people in business maybe celebrities. Maybe just large groups of regular people in neighborhoods. Something has got to happen from the outside. Because what's governing us. These people are hopeless. They're never gonna change. You can't talk to them. They don't want to hear from you anyway. So we'll talk to craig gravy and see what he's about coming up. After four o'clock. I the next story. We're going to talk about now. Is a website called fast company. I've seen a few stories there every now and then. The author is adele peter's mentioning. That i because her bio is. She's a staff writer at fast company who focuses on solutions to some of the world's largest problems from climate change to homelessness previously. One of jobs was at uc berkeley. That's gonna give you that introduction. Because what she is. Writing about. Peter is something that probably never occurred to john kobylt and many of our listeners who enjoy the nextdoor app. The nextdoor app is the neighborhood. Social network. Supposedly is an estimated twenty six million monthly users and there is the angle that adele peters is covering. You have to have an address to use nextdoor app and it's leaving out the homeless now. I'm sorry the house the house it's wrong with you mentioned. She calls them home. Listen this though an house both but she tells the story to begin with of a woman by the name of ruth ruth. There's an announced resident of l. a. Studio city neighborhood who asked to be referred by her first name for privacy. Reasons says she became aware of next door after hearing about an attack on someone in her neighborhood. She was worried about her own safety and wanted to learn more. She couldn't join the platform neighbors. Were discussing it. Because she doesn't have an address living in studio city. You can't just wanted to point out. She did live here for five years in the same spot here every night. She's another one. She's got her encampment. You can't put ten number four. See i don't think it's going to be accepted. No that's not. Probably a confirmed address in studio city all some street tent number four c. On right exactly just so boulevard boulevard. Lavar around the corner of woodman and ten foresee. It's the blue tent. She said her significant other rented here. We're part of this neighborhood significant other yes editor. What happened to the significant. But that is one of the kicked ruth out and she's just living on the street corner of that's up there with abundance caution in dumb phrases another sympathizer was yasmine. Pomeroy a teacher in la city council candidate asking next door to change its policy. There's information that people have firsthand that you might not get anywhere else has a high school teacher. I get emails from my principal. Who has firsthand information. That i could then post next door. And say hey. This is a vaccine location to opening up today on a neighborhood. That's important for people to know not just people who have homes. This is what i said right before the break at this. This ice stuck in my head from years ago. Remember the riverbed We had a listener on the show. I guess who lived nearby that was being affected by that huge encampment and he said my problem is were normalizing the behavior and you're seeing it happen even with the term determine housed residents your normalized that you cannot do that. If you're ever gonna make this problem go away and solve it. You cannot normalize it. And that's the danger here and i don't care much for next door. I don't even use it. But honestly if they have a policy that you have to have an address in the neighbor because they wanted to be real people. Living in the exact neighborhood are exchanging information. They don't want some stupid guy from several neighborhoods over who thinks it might be funny to be on john. Koh belts where he lives on the west side. They want it to be real people living in the neighbourhood. Not people with a tent on the corner. No because don't give rail people in the neighborhood. We purchased or rented the property. We're paying taxes. And we're we're we're we're do. The services is from the police or the fire department situations created by the homeless the homeless first of all huge percentage criminals. That's what it says. A lot of these nextdoor app conversations about the homeless are not friendly or kind and and they're not it said. This is where people are really venting because that's reality because the homeless situation is an unfriendly. Unkind situation to us the homeowners and renters. Down your home where they think drag your property values. They ruin the property values in neighborhoods. They start fires hundreds of fires every year in the city of los angeles. A lot of them are criminals or they're committing crimes. They're they're they're either out of jail with a record or they're committing crimes on a daily basis mostly against each other rawson from each other the sexually assaulting each other. I don't really want to hear their point of view. They're not supposed to be here. Listen to how looney this is. This writer for fast company in talking to ruth are homeless woman actually uses the term. She got a victim from encampments multiple times and sometimes people on next door. 'cause those fictions they're using the word eviction to tell somebody plop down at ten on a public street that you can't stay right. Because that's a loaded term because the activists patrol these encampments and teach them what terms to use in order to make them sound as legitimate normal as the rest of us homeowners and renters. You say that they're the same. They're being evicted. They're being evicted from their home. It's just like me and just like you know they're not that's why you have to fight back against the language. I'm always on alert for language key. What kind of language they choose. And how does the new language service them because they're using that language in order to control you in order to get you to accept sir in situations that you should never accept and they try to use language to manipulate you to shame you to create some aura of controversy around you. He's not respecting the on housed. He doesn't understand they've been a victim. Did and these are their possessions. Well no this is garbage and junk that they stole from other people their possessions. The rest of this article is pretty much the fact that well you're une house neighbors don't have a say you see people on next door talk about them. They have a right to come and defend themselves. They need to get on that at no. They don't that they. The app is privately owned they. They set the rules and the rules. Are you have to you have to live in the neighborhood. You have to have a verifiable address. Sorry you just because you came in with your needles and you squatted and you claimed territory because that's where your poop every day doesn't mean you have to end up because what what did they want to argue. They wanna they wanna shame and tell everybody harangue with the homeless. It's like you're being unkind to me. You don't know me you don't understand what they do. That's what that's what everybody wants. There's so much hate here. I'm a person to its but you don't have a home here and a homeys of residents and you don't have because you don't rondo a house not a tent yet. Know work you could you you don't you don't know how to work. You don't wanna work. You chose to take too many drugs. You chose to drink too much. You chose to not take medication for your mental illness. You put yourself in this position. You i didn't. You came in my neighborhood squatted. And now you want me to pay for your problems and endure all the all the atrocities that you commit all the time you and the two hundred others that have joined you know how about that. How about no. We got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi john and ken show. John kobylt ken chiampou. Kfi answer twenty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. I think the following story just about says at all from abc seven and reporter liles stallworth. This is a property owner. He actually owns the building where he rents out units to tenants and he is now living out of his car. Let's play the story from channel seven. I was upset that the city of los angeles with suggest to me that i would go into a homeless shelter when i own property in the city of love. This property only wanted his identity shield and he says he's going through a divorce and it's been displaced needs a place to live. He says despite owning a duplex in the west adams district. He's forbidden from moving out of one of the units so he can move in there. The moratorium preventing me from being able to move into my home during this kobe. nineteen period. He says tenants have been paying rents even through the cova period but he adds the that moratorium on evictions put in place during the pandemic prevents him from filing a declaration of intent to move out so he can occupy one of his units. He adds his property falls under rent control. Which has left him with next to nothing. After pouring large amounts of money into city and forced upkeep of the property the act passed by the state and nine hundred eighty five allows a property owner the right to victims from rent controlled buildings as long as they sell the property converted into condominiums or let the building sit vacant for five years. Not a feasible option for the property owner in this case we are asking for the city council and for the legislature of the state of california to exempt. Small property owners. Like my mom. And pop owners those with five or less unit or not corperation from all control restriction. We talked to an attorney who represents tenants and property owners. He says the property owner in this case could lawfully move the tune it out but it would cost him upwards of twenty thousand dollars to help relocate tenants where you tell this guy tough luck unfortunately unless someone unless unless that tenant says hey i'll get up and leave in for instance you can pay me that twenty thousand over a year but call into various city agencies dealing with property ownership rent controlled and cova protections for renters and was only told there are problems with in laws regarding rights tenants and property. That's from channel seven and ended abruptly property owners don't have rights only ten rights. And this is again the idea that we're gonna protect renters from evil landlords. They're just big evil greedy corporations. They're not they're not. There's a love. This guy only owns a couple of units implants. It's elderly now. He's hit hard times. He needs to have one from back for a place to live. No he's going to live out of his car. Sometimes it's elderly people. It's early source of income. It's totally forgotten. I you know. I i remember we. My wife and i've talked about it. You'll buying place renting it out to people. And i said i don't want to rent out anybody because if they don't wanna leave you can never get rid of right. They have a lot of rights series. No there's no laws on the side of the property owners not gonna end up in court for six years. You're the evil landlords right. You're the ones that have to be. You're you're like the king of the serfs. Besides most people you have to protect the rent dirty and crazy. Anyway we come back come back. We're going to talk to craig craig gravy. Craig gravy is a executive with rogers and cowan the big public relations agency. And he thinks the way. I think if california are going to change it's not going to be the politicians. We have to organize ourselves to take over the government from them and he wants to lead a grand marketing and informational campaign. To get people inspired. He's got a group called rise together. He'll he'll explain all this but it's a worthwhile. We come back on the john. And ken show debra mark has news. Kfi am six forty.

John & Ken Show Hour 1 (03/08)

"Finally showed up on time back. You're stuck with me for all four hours long again. Thanks can love you to for stacy's not late in three months. Look into this. Ken show john kobylt and ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app. Welcome every single buddy particularly those of you who have signed petitions to recall gavin newsom. The recall organizers announced yesterday that they have reached one million nine hundred and fifty thousand signatures gathered. they are so close to that two million. I'm sure it's going to happen by wednesday. The rate that they've been doing that. I sent in my signature over the weekend. We needed you. So it's fifty thousand and one there may have been. I don't know when they got yours. You may be part of this new number or you're right your vantage though. I don't think. I don't think i'd be the official count yet. That is so of course. The process was a long way to go and that they have to go through. The county registrar's the verification process. Which i'm sure will be with the magnifying glass and the fine tooth comb and all the other cliches to try to kick out as many as possible but the last report we got on. The verification percentage eighty three percent which is pretty good at. that's official from but that's only a small collection of signatures. They haven't gotten the bulk of them signatures. Come in i. To the recall organizers they go through them and then they turn them over to the county registrar would have to drop down below seventy five percent for there not to recall because again the magic number is one point five million roughly signatures have to be verified as good to get this on the ballot. So if you do the math and eighty three percent but with the two million a nice little margin it's a million six hundred and sixty thousand. Well look at you rainman. But let's turn to the new recall that's right we're going to be battling with another recall question. It's just for you. La county register voters. And it's all about the la county da. George since he took office in december. It is unbelievable. What's happened in such a short order. And i think the emphasis should be rightly so the way. He deals with violent criminals. Murderers killers police officers and little boys getting more lenient treatment. No sentencing enhancements. No death penalty people's mouths have hit the floor. And i think people that voted for this guy are a lot of them are in shock because you know allegedly they thought oh you know the minor offenders home burglar as maybe some drug people go a little easier on them because they deserve but now they're finding out his murderers. We laced the last story we had last week was about a then seventeen year old. Who killed two sisters. She just got them both down ex girlfriend and her sister and then set the apartment on fire to try to cover up the crime. He is now twenty under gascons policy. He's going to get out of twenty five. Can you imagine twenty five for a multiple murderer for gunning down two young women because he knows his whole life ahead of them. We shouldn't steal it from him just because he killed people. What's wrong with you. Where he wants to do is bulldoze. Our current system entirely. Let's recall george. Gascon dot com and they had to wait for ninety days to go by before they could officially kick off the recall. And we're going to find out more from a. John had tommy's come back on the show and he is an la county. Deputy district attorney. We've had on a number of times over the problems. Da john welcome. Thank you john and ken for having me welcome. But what is your role. Give any official connection with recall movement. Here i don't I mean i think. I guess my connection is i'm just working every day to fight for victims and and fight for their families I think that both recall Folks and i. I have that in common Just like you brought up Unique atkins and sierra brown Two young girls one sixteen and one twenty six both moms though had children and they were brutally murdered by somebody who was eighteen years old and now that person's going to be released at twenty five and so i think that Both myself and many the people running the recall and behind the recall All support victims and support the family members of victims. And so i think that's probably my biggest connection to the recall folks. Yeah we should point out guess. Cohn has discretion to try this kid as an adult and then he could potentially get life in prison But we've had an endless series. A stories i i mean we probably should index them all and count them up because almost every day or every other day another story came out about a terrible murderer Sometimes they sexually attacked a young children and gas wants to get them out early one way or the other. We we have a los angeles county district attorney. That is pro criminal. He is anti victim. His radical policies benefit the criminal over the public These are some horrendous policies. He just came out today and said Even if in a case where the committee decided and voted on death. He will not allow the death penalty in any case. He doesn't care about the evidence he doesn't care about the law. He doesn't care about the victims or their family members of the victims. he doesn't care about marci's law the only cares about his own personal beliefs and feelings and his own politics and that is just not justice. It is not justice. It's not right when you say the committee. What does that mean well What happened before gascon took office on any case that had a special circumstance. And you're talking about a very small percentage about one percent Would go to a committee and committee will decide if there was enough evidence To to allow that case to be a death penalty case. It's a very long process Very thorough process where where we could take into consideration. All the facts of the case. All of the evidence Even the mitigation and we allowed the defense attorneys even submit. Mitigation just see every little aspect of the case and many cases including the case of ten-year-old anthony alba. La's a little boy. According to the grand jurors was tortured and murdered by his mother and her live in boyfriend. they decided based on all of the evidence that that was a death penalty case and we announced that in court in front of the judge. george gascon indicated that he was going to allow dda's To ask for a thirty day continuance and provide a memo on all these cases who he would consider them. He even agreed to the death penalty in the case of gorge. You though the boy next door the now. He's come out today and said he will not allow the death penalty and police killer cases in mass murderer cases. So if somebody went into a school and killed ten or twenty children. He wouldn't allow the death penalty if somebody was tortured and murdered. He won't allow the death penalty if a little girl was raped and murdered. He won't allow the death penalty even if the voters voted on it which they did in twenty twelve and twenty sixteen even there. There's a hundred percent evidence. He will not allow the death penalty. And that is violating the will of the voters and it's really violating the family members and the victims. They feel like they had nobody in los angeles to fight for them. John let me ask you this. I'm sure you follow this story closely back. It was gascoyne against lacey. Do you think that a lot of voters forget gone saw this coming that he would be lenient so to speak on. Murderers murderers police officers teenage girls. Six year old. Boys i mean. Do you think they knew this was coming. Did you know this was coming. That is a great question and you know what the answer is. Absolutely not all you need to do and i challenge anybody. Go look at george gascons website. He didn't put anywhere on his website that he wasn't going to allow life without the possibility of parole. He didn't put anywhere in his website that he wasn't going to allow prosecutors to go to parole hearings. He didn't put anywhere in his website that he wasn't gonna prosecuting hate crimes or elder abuse allegations or great bodily injury against children. He didn't put anywhere his website that he was going to allow zero dollars bail for child abuse and domestic violence. He didn't put anywhere on his website. Any of these things. You didn't put anywhere on his website. That that he he wouldn't allow any type of government enhancement or gun allegation. This was nowhere on his website so he completely lied to to the entire public. He constantly says that he has the will of the voters. Well he doesn't because many voters did not see any of these things on his website. He did not talk about any of these things. He did not tell that you seventeen years old and eleven months and you murder two girls and then tried to burn the there. The apartment down to hide the evidence that you were going to allow that person to be released at twenty five if he would have told people that people would have voted for him at all. What's his challenges go ahead. John wasn't his record when he was. Da in san francisco. This bad you know. And and that's another great question. It was bad. He claims that everywhere. He's gone that the crime had has the crime rate has dropped. No it hasn't everywhere he's gone to crime rate has risen. It's gotten worse. And so his policies do not work. He claims that data in science support His policies the problem is he cites push polls. He sites biased polls. He's sites Articles that weren't peer-reviewed that haven't been published his data and science it's completely flawed and everywhere he goes. He ruins the community. And you know what. I'm not going to allow it. I'm going to stand up and fight for all the victims in my community. I live here. My wife lives here. My children live here and my family lives here and so no matter what. I'm going to continue to fight for the victims and family members and this community. Can i ask you one final question before we let you go john. Are you still getting pushed back from gas or as office for being involved in doing public appearances over this. You know At first. I didn't really really scared and i still am a little concerned but i haven't they haven't come and talked to me at all. I still haven't met the da even on the cases that i'm talking to you about the da hasn't talked to me. The da hasn't talked to the family members in my cases So i have not seen anything like that And even if there was you know. John and ken even if there was. I'm still gonna keep doing what i'm doing. I'm doing what i'm doing. Because i believe in it But i haven't had any anything Anybody approach me negatively which Thank goodness that hasn't happened Because they still need to pay my mortgage and you know. I still have kids But no it hasn't happened. I thank you very much for coming out again to john. Tatami appreciate it thank you. He's an l. a. County deputy district attorney and he says he's all for the recall of george. Gascon is kicking off this week. We hope to find out perhaps later. Today or tomorrow from organizers what they have to go through and how long it might be before you actually see a petition that you can sign the whole time line of this but it's recall number two newsom out guests. Go out it happen. We got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi johnny ken. Show john kobylt. Ken chiampou it's k. f. I am six forty five everywhere. The iheartradio to needs to show. Even i was opening up his own little personal flavor to play this record. Good weight then yup. I think that we were together. This is expressed yourself right. Yeah yeah i was disc jockey when this thing came. Yeah you know. Listen to sirius. Xm and they have the eighties. The countdown they did nine hundred. Eighty seven when i was discharged eric. You weren't even alive song. Come back to me and play one that you haven't heard since you played it in nineteen eighty success and it was a fairly big hit. They are ignored because research shows that they're not there's not interest research sucks research kills radio the blow monkeys digging your scene. I remember that yeah. It was a great song. they played on the countdown. Otherwise it really got banished. I because it was Corporate research held decides that. That's what it is it is it is all the all these executives and all they do is quote research which says they throw all those records out. Nobody wants to hear the first raft. I would send Onto satan's like a fire would be radio consultants and researchers except one help us get your tail so all right well that guy that guy gets. Yeah we're we're going to be talking about united teachers. Los angeles where ninety one percent of the union members voted not to refuse to return to the classroom. A- talk about after two i want. Is that a fake number or they are the teachers really that insane. Are you all really that crazy and really that cruel to children. It's got to be one of the other events a completely fake story or the teachers more than any other group in america are the cruelest people children on the planet. Now we're also taking a look at the newly launched effort to recall. La county district attorney. George gascon found a couple of good nuggets in a city journal. Article on the recall called in tinseltown. I hate that term a glimmer of hope on law and order by raphael monk wall. Who's with the manhattan institute and these statistics are why it's important because with guests gone. The real problem is violent. Crime as we've talked over and over again. He is willing to let murderers of children. Police officers get as little time as possible for their crimes. And among equal rights in this column that guest gone won by margins of sixteen and ten percentage points respectively with polarity black and majority latino communities those groups so born the brunt of the city spike in shootings forty percent homicides twenty five percents blacks and latinos constituted eighty five percent of twenty twenty homicide victims in both the city of la and los angeles county. Recent polling suggests that democratic voters most likely to throw their support behind more conservative candidates. Are those with conservative views on crime policing and public safety which brings me to the other side of this and that is research city sites here that says that blacks and latinos have expressed strong support for criminal justice reforms. But they're packing doesn't extend to the violent now those who have high risks fending off the hunt. National poll revealed that no majority of any group whether divided by race religion ideology political party employment or any other category supported reducing prison sentences for violent criminals. No there is no constituency for this when you start getting into these cases for example the seventeen year old who shot the two sisters to death And now he may get out and twenty five so he could cover up. His crime burned the bodies. Or you have the case of the guy in orange county who who raped and murdered two little boys and that he would get out early. If the i mean gas goes for sentences that are five years seven years ten years so they're really light sentences and nobody. Nobody wants that and he didn't run on that. Here's what people think of. When it comes to reform they think about drug crimes because we loaded up the prisons all over the country with drug crimes. And now we're slowly legalizing drugs. Society changed in their attitudes about drugs and they didn't think it was right to put somebody away for thirty years. But what he did is he took advantage of that general feeling that general changing society about not punishing drug crimes seriously and and then he jumped all the way to guys who killed little rape guys who raped little boys and kill them guys who shoot young women to death and police officer and police officers. Yes police officers. You know what i saw over the weekend for the first time in a while another one of those polls on people want to defend the police and the answer was eighteen percent. That's the crowd that's behind gas gone. It's really a minority. I'm hoping and believing that a lot of people voted for gas gone. Didn't win that. Overwhelming fifty. three percent of the vote are going to look at. What's going on now with the murderers and say this ain't what i signed on for and they're going to help with the recall. That's what i'm hoping. All this needs is a a publicity if they can get the money to publicize. What's going on. It shouldn't take long. I don't know why. Jackie lacey. May i don't know if she wasn't financed properly and gas going is financed by that. Eddie billionaire george soros and he was financed by netflix. Ceo reed hastings. He's financed by steven spielberg among others. His his ads. And i imagine a lot of them were online were probably extremely deceptive and and and and i don't think jackie lacey ran an effective campaign against him when we come to ten percent of this stuff in san francisco should have been a slam dunk win the problem for her. She was chased by the black lives matter long. That's the silly story that got any friction grip she you know. You have to fight that stuff. That's the thing. Junior husband flipped out on the porch. I mean that wasn't good publicity either. Should have gone. You can't be afraid. You cannot be afraid of protest groups of public criticism. You cannot be afraid of this stuff. You have to fight it because look what happens. Suddenly a guy kills two young women. He's going to be out in five years. Suddenly a guy who rapes two little boys and kills them could have been out in ten years. This is what happens. When you're afraid i'll be come back. United teachers los angeles. Probably the nation's only remaining large roadblock to reopening schools. They are holding the line and they claimed ninety one percent of their members refused to return to campus unless demands are met. We'll talk about it next. John and ken. Kfi john and ken chiampou kfi am six. Exporting live everywhere on the iheartradio app. oh coming up after. Three o'clock the cdc's what tells us. Now what you can and cannot do after you've been vaccinated. Oh you could gather in small groups without mass see this finger. Thank you mean the pinky pinky got my pinky extended the la county sheriff. Alex via the wave is going to come on the show at five. Oh five to talk about the gascoyne recall. That's coming up so don't miss that tomorrow tomorrow. Guess who's going to be in. La it's gonna make a big speech gavin newsom. His state of the state speech be from la at six pm tomorrow. And the reason is it's pretty simple and pretty chance. Transparent it is the largest media market and he thinks that the tv will give him airtime making his state of the states. Wishing 'cause we could have had a good time no see real time. I know karen lean banks. Oh the drinking game with all the you know home it. lean in. we'll get into this later throughput. Yeah yeah. I you know Flywheel flywheel flywheel was another highlight a oh and the the equity overlay equity is the call ashley equity overlay and over. We're of course were sober to that. Yeah in fact. There's a good drinking game to play tomorrow night. At six o'clock you're right with all them up with a list. We just gave like seven of them. There's gotta be fifty seven. You'll be wiped out by quarter player over the weekend. United teachers los angeles. The union for la teachers announced that they took a vote of their members and they say ninety one percent refused to return to the campuses unless three conditions are met. The county moves out of the purple tier right all school. Employees are fully vaccinated offered access to full vaccination cause some could say don't want it and schools have satisfactory. I mean this is pretty broad satisfactory safety conditions in place. Sure that wrestling -tective equipment physical distancing mccall's ventilation all that crap and that's a great one the the thing about the safety conditions because at subjective easily never be satisfied Most big city schools in the nation are either have opened up or they're going to open up very soon. Los angeles is in listen to this of the nation's ten largest school systems wos angeles is the only one left without a start date. San francisco has the start date coming up well today announced late april. That's kind of all he said we have. But that's not a start date because the teachers union is a said. It's not satisfied yet. So that's got to sign off. Tim blown gas to get a stupid headline but there is no start date and we're the only one out of the top ten cities not to have a hard start date ready to go and soon. Even the elsa godot times had to concede a bit. Did you see store. They did today on the catholic school that reopened and have had no covert outbreaks. And it was like. They went through all their procedures and protocols and measures in place. But it's working. Of course it's working that was proven last fall. There's nothing new here. Much of the country has so moved on from the high school soon. Yeah that's the real tough one because people think the older kids are certainly more at risk in the younger kids. Yeah gavin newsom. Skaters have been have been going to school since october. Private schools have been operating in many places for a long time. Public schools in a lot of states have been open for months and months. They did a district survey conducted last fall. Now that's that's months ago that two thirds of households don't want their kids returning to la unified schools. Believe that the teachers union like escalona. Mike bond they make up fake polls fake stories are. They're outdated now i. I don't believe that the because at that defies any common sense at Wait only in. La are the parents against opening the schools but in every other city and every other state in the country therefore opening schools. That's nonsense this story you found in the new york times. La unified this good insights as to what the kids actually do all day. In some circumstances this poor family here eight and does it with her for school. Aged children bear an la unified. And obviously they're learning remotely. One of the little boys i guess for the reporter pulled out a book that he wanted to show he's practicing reading a hardcover version of star wars and he stumbles on a word. He shows the book to his mother. She don't know 'cause she speaks spanish. She doesn't know english. Yeah that's that's his life and he says when my mom says it's time for school i don't want to go to school. I sign on when school is over. Eat some lunch. Get on my phone again. Go play with my baby. Brother gets fresh air. It goes on and on like that. So i just sign online for three hours. He signs on but is he paying any attention and there's no way for the lazy teacher on the other side of the screen to get them to pay attention due to agree with him. What what why do why do the teachers don't want to help these kids. This poor guy wants to read. He's excited about opening up star star wars book and he tries to get a word but his mother can't speak english so he doesn't know the word he goes Off to play with his baby brother and that doesn't bother these teachers who have devoted their lives to educating children. Have you ever seen a bigger bunch of phonies. Have you ever seen a bigger bunch of phonies los angeles teachers and i'm going to include all of them now ninety one percent of not gonna pick on the blowhard union leaders. It's the teachers. Kindergarten teachers second grade teachers fourth grade teachers cute teachers pretty teachers fat teachers old hag teachers all of them enough enough with the halo around them. When when you you know people in your life that you think your friends or family members sometimes even a spouse and then something really big happens and you absolutely need them and they're not therefore you and you feel angry and betrayed and let down and it changes the way you think about them for a long time may be forever. This is the moment with the los angeles teachers. It should change the way you think about them forever because in the moment that you had hundreds of thousands of kids who needed them desperately they would not move one inch when we come back. I guess we'll give a warning. We are going to play the head of this union. Yes cecil my art. Crews we threw in the dumpster a couple of weeks ago. She is the president of ucla and we have the audio for making the announcement. The teachers voted overwhelmingly supposedly ninety one percent not to return to the classroom until their demands are met if you have pets at home. That are easily rattled by loud noises. You you may want to remove them from the room if you yourself are uncomfortable with sudden jolts of sound. Maybe high pitched levels of various audio. Might want to put a muffler on your ears. Covered up the john and ken. Kfi show. John kobylt ken chiampou. Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio app filling. Talk it alex stone after three the cdc has issued guidance as to what you can and cannot do after you've been vaccinated on the flip side of this completely. We'll tell you what happened idaho. A couple of women organized a mask burning. Wow yeah the world is out of its mind anyway. We'll get to all that. After three o'clock we're talking about the refusal of the teachers union and the teachers in the teachers union to return to classrooms anytime soon until their demands are met including the broad one about the physical safeguards the school. Yeah but. I don't think i don't think that's the problem i think is they. They don't i think they have a lot of money. They want to extort from the government and i think they have some social justice measures they want implemented i. It can't because the science has already settled. What's the science is settled and again. We're the only city out of the top ten cities in america. That does not have a start date. I mean everyone else is better opening very soon so you tell legs down teacher workdays for now from eight hours to four hours and forty five minutes an hour and fifteen minutes of office hours at their discretion that's now during the pandemic. Yes so they're only working four hours and forty five minutes right. Oh my god. They're so they already got fifty minutes of office hours and yet discretion whenever they want a debt. It's nothing it's nothing it's not return. I'm gonna. I'm gonna go get some wine and turn on turn on the daytime talk shows. I'm gonna watch some judge shows. Apparently or the who who. Who's your baby momma shows. That's what they're doing. What else would you do it too in the afternoon after. You're done with your four hours and forty-five minutes you turn as overhauled. Its ventilation systems was right about that. And put comprehensive health measures in place including one of the nation's most extensive school-based corona virus testing programs. They spent the money already. The schools are ready. No one knows this because this is hardly even reported but the schools are. Structurally ready for this and every other big city in the country is open or will open very soon. La is a complete out wire. It is only the bizarre stance of wash angeles teachers. Nobody else's like this. The science is is is over and francisco. Schools are moving to reopen. You'd think that would be a highly progressive crazy crab. This shouldn't be politics. There's no progressive view opening schools or conservative view on opening schools. If it's safe the schools are open. That's not a political statement. That's why new york chicago and san francisco are open. That's why republicans and democrats in washington right up. To biden pelosi agree. The schools should be open. Nobody's saying they should be closed. Not the cdc not thou- she nobody except los angeles teachers not the union. The teachers you know. Let's accept that ninety one percent of the teachers don't wanna work so you can't just blame the crazy union heads. It is the teachers either. That or this this union president sesame meyer crews lying one of the two either. She's lying about a fake poll or really the teachers here in. La are different that every other teacher group in the nation. Let's play some of cecil maya art cruise. The united teachers los angeles president issue another warning or we have a warning. Actually i think we have an audio warning here. Wanted to Out of twenty four thousand. Five hundred eighty ballots cast ninety. One percent were yes and nine percent were. No that's powerful. La members work to resist a premature and unsafe physical return to school sites. Today's result is a testament to our three demands for a safe and healthy return one. La county must be out of the purple tier. Two staff must either fully be vaccinated or access to full vaccination and three safety conditions. Must be in place at stop. Stop a second first of all. If this is why it goes back to newsome's lousy lousy planning system note. We should not be in the purple tier absolutely not no we should not be in the purple tier and secondly they should vaccinated the teachers early to get that issue off the board. I don't think i if the cdc tells you that you don't need to be vaccinated that it's safe to go. It means safe to go. But are taken off the table. Get him vaccinated early but new some botched that he also botched it with a stupid tear and a stupid metrics. You take those off the table. She's got noth- nothing left because the third things would take care of the to billions already been spent on on The ventilation systems and everything else they need but you can't satisfy her she'll keep changing it a little while ago. They were saying well the kids have to be vaccinated to. She's not talking about that anymore but she has retracted it. I think they're going to see and the third part about until we decided safe. Well they could screw around with that forever. You can spend another billion dollars an hour. I don't think say fiat yet. and all. I poll that. They said they took last fall. That you now that we're in march of blood of the parents have changed their mind. It's time to get back to the classroom. That's too old that paul. Let's that you might as well give us a call from nineteen sixty two. That really means nothing. The world changed completely. The pandemic is over in. Its most serious sense and and it's going to be over because now you have one hundred and twenty million people in the country who probably got infected. Three-quarters either had mild or no symptoms and they never got tested but they have antibodies. And then you have another fifty plus million people who got injected with the vaccine so the the reason the numbers are way down is the virus is running out of bodies. It's running out of places to go. It's not gonna come back not this year that not this particular virus. It's done because by the summertime you're going to have probably sixty seven percent of the country vaccinated plus all the people who got the antibodies from their infections. And then that's it. The chapters closed all right when we come back speaking of the vaccine. We'll find out what the cdc has given out as guidance for those of you who have gotten their vaccines. The dues in shouldn't do next john. And ken debra mark has news. kfi am six forty.

John & Ken Show Hour 4 (02/03)

"A major milestone in the push to recall governor. The campaign now has a million signatures. I made a bad mistake. And i expect more from myself. And that's why we started this vaccinate all fifty eight campaign recognizing that all californians need to be created in this vaccination process and that we can't leave folks behind we're gonna see faster administration. You'll see only accountable you will. And now here's the latest update on recall signatures versus people vaccinated from john and ken. We've got fresh hot numbers. New recall signature. Total it's one million three hundred and seventy thousand signatures. Seventy thousand more came in. Since last wednesday and again they need a total of a million five hundred thousand verified which means will need to get at least one point eight million to two million total and They're getting more money donated. So it's it's still very possible. Million three hundred seventy thousand. Kfi am six forty dot com. The john and ken page and we have a link there so you can download the petition. Fill it out and send it now on the vaccine front. Well we've slipped a little bit. In the standings california is in thirty ninth place. We have vaccinated Three million eight hundred thousand times. That's fifty nine point. Eight percent call it sixty percent and But more vaccines have come in. So our percentage dropped are standing dropped Although although again there seems to be a lot of vaccines unaccounted for inexplicably. I mean we have over six million vaccines that have been said here. We've only used three point. Seven million and barbara ferrer in los angeles was complaining that they're running out so well in the freezer and not over. The vaccination sites is the mystery that nobody could unravel new summating appearance today. We'll talk about it later concerning vaccines pretty funny clip from him while he took us about forty seconds. But it tells you all you need to know about this buffalo and and again if you wanna be part of the recall. Check out the website kfiam640.com. Go to the. John and ken page somebody else. He's already ripe for a recall. Really already is the la county district attorney. George gascon we've been talking about him since he took office because immediately as he took office he issued a bunch of directives. The one that's really troubling to a lot of deputy. Da's is the one regarding his sentence enhancements. He wants to eliminate them and when he first came out he said there'd be no exceptions because exceptions will swallow the rule. Eventually he made a few exceptions. But it didn't stop a story that we talked about yesterday with a grieving father. His son was killed along with another man by a gang member who then dumped their bodies in the desert. Eliminating sentence enhancements against this killing gang member could reduce his prison time to another seventeen years. He could be out before he's fifty. That's the impact. What's yours casts going is doing. It can be at out when he's forty forty. So the los angeles county deputy district attorneys association of deputies. They filed the lawsuit december thirtieth against gascoyne recording this sentencing enhancement directive saying that. It's it's forcing the deputy. Da -'s violate the law and it went before it. La county superior court judge yesterday. They'd like him to slap it injunction on it preliminary injunction. Let's get john khatami on again. He's been one of the most outspoken. La county deputy as against gascons directives. john thank you for coming on again. Thank you for having me. So how did the Court hearing go I think it went well I'll tell you some of the the Highlights that happened in the hearing George gas grown through his attorney one of the first things that the argued was basically. He said since i won the election. I can do whatever i want. The problem with that is winning an election. Doesn't trump following the law. The da is not above the law is not a king and he's not a dictator. If george gascon is so concerned about the voters which he seems to say many times and what about the millions of people who voted for three strikes what about the millions of people. That just voted to say no to zero bail. What about the millions of people who voted for the death penalty twenty twelve and in two thousand sixteen. And what about the millions of people who voted for special circumstances As early as two thousand and so he constantly says that since he's won the election he can make these decisions but prosecutorial discretion is not mean. You're above the law and does not mean that you can break the law and the other thing that happened Go ahead continue Another thing that happened is is is george. Gas guns directed apply to every single case. It's a blanket policy and he doesn't look at the facts of any specific case so basically. He looks at a car theft. Just the same as a child who was tortured and murdered. There needs to be a case. By case analysis before you apply prosecutorial discretion law facts evidence and the truth are important to a prosecutor. Do matter facts and law matter. I think george. Gus gun would understand that better if he actually tried case He's more concerned with politics. And headlines were blanket. Policies force deputy district attorneys to choose between following the law and risk getting disciplined or fired or doing something unethical in court And that's just plainly unfair and unethical. No i just want people understand describe as a deputy. Da how you violating the law if you brought a case before a judge and you were not able to charge the defendant with the special enhancements like like this double murderer For example that ken just described. How is that violating house. Not the discretion falls discretion policy so charging charging falls under discretion of the da. Once you decide to charge something then the allegations are mandated by the penal code mandated by law so when he says he wants to eliminate three strikes allegations on every single case at violates the penal code when he says he wants to eliminate special circumstances which means eliminating intentional murder and torture of a child hate crime murders. Police murders rape murders when he wants to limit it lemonade. That in every single case well that's mandated by the penal code. Same firearms enhancements gang. Enhancements and certain sensing enhancements. And so if you ask deputy district attorney and you say hey we're going to charge your murder then by law. We need to charge plead improve. The strikes plead include. We eat and proves specific allegations. In addition he's he has is policies a retroactive. Let's say i've already had a case where we've prosecuted and individual. We've already done a grand jury already presented all this evidence to grand jurors through the case Put my name on the case of of gone on the record in court And now he wants me to go into court and just say oops. I made a mistake. You need to dismiss all these allegations and enhancements and that that's a complete violation of our ethical duties. It's also a violation of all the jurors in a grand jury who listened to the evidence It's also violation because you only do dismiss things in the interest of justice not because somebody's personal opinions should be dismissed. It has to be a factual basis based upon the interest of justice. And if you just go into court and say hey. I think we should dismiss them. Because i just don't agree with it that actually the legal And it's unethical. What the gas go didn't rebutted. This argument You know one of the things they said which was interesting is the judge asked specifically Did george guys go and say that. Three strikes was unconstitutional. George gas goes own. Attorney said no. However in black and white and george gascons directives. He says three strikes are unconstitutional. And he orders. Deputy district attorney argued that in court. So shouldn't angelenos be able to trust their. Da to tell the truth that's one thing. His attorneys argued another thing. That trains argued ways that the union should be responsible just for Improving working conditions. They shouldn't actually be bringing this lawsuit but the judge disagreed with that as well. The judge said in his enforcing a deputy district attorney to walk into court. And do something illegal or unethical. Isn't that a working condition issue so It appears that judge a lot of good Questions to a lot of things that were going on within within the lawsuit and a lot of things going on in la county court system. When do you think decision. I think we'll get a decision by the end of the week I don't wanna call it on what the decision will be. I don't know. But but i would say that. Whatever the decision is everybody needs to respect it. we're going through the process and there's a good process And all sides got to be heard and whatever decision. The judge comes with comes up with his decision that we all should respect. I mean i also wanna say this the. Da should not be able to put his political or personal views above the law. That's not discretion the. Da should not be able to abandon victims the rights of victims or their family members. It shows a complete lack of understanding the impact upon crime upon victims. Jonah tommy. We appreciate you coming on again. You make a great case. Thank you very much. thank you i. It's la county. Deputy district attorney. John had tommy who has been outspoken. Emotionally against george gas going in his directives particularly the one dealing with sentence enhancements being dropped judge james shall faint is the one. That's gonna make a decision possibly later this week about whether or not he will slap a preliminary injunction on gascoyne for dropping these sentence enhanced with a part to where he's got spies in courtroom to keep an eye on the deputy. Da as to make sure they're doing his bidding nice arab pure evil. It is it is an evil dictator and he's law exactly all right. We got more coming. And it's all for murderers john and ken. Kfi doco garcetti on tv. Jason his virus updates. Oh my god along with the sign language guy who pops out of that dark suit. Where is what what's the cartoon channel rather watch that. John and ken show john kobylt ken. Chiampou kfi am six forty five everywhere on the iheartradio app. Well his twin buffoon friend gavin newsom made an appearance today at the oakland alameda county coliseum to announce that that is going to be a mass vaccination site and down here open up cal state university los angeles. They'll be jointly. Run by fema. And the governor's office of emergency services. We're going to play you a clip of newsom classic. See if you can't figure out why he is so annoying and so out of touch at the language that he chooses to use is just remarkably weird a he starts right out of the chute here so pay attention and there isn't eight second period where he rips off three classics in a row. Go ahead california will be launching. Not just this site here in oakland but also a site down in los angeles at cal state. La the whole idea is to speed up the through put. The suspicion maintain an equitable lands in terms of the application and distribution of vaccines. Equity is the call of this moment nights. Not not stop there. I mean he threw put the equity lens and is the call of this moment. That's how we meet the moment. This is new some right now. You're this is his prime. this is his. I mean he's incomprehensible here. What through by now you through. The point is they're trying to make an effort to target minorities poor people and others who might be neglected by putting these sites they believe in those neighborhoods id sites. I didn't see the video. Was he wearing an equity lens. If you have the proper lens can you see equity more. Clearly equity is the call of this moment. And does that mean we should be calling out the word equity equity. That is the call. The moment i mean. Even this sentence the reason this site was chosen was the framework of making sure committee. Communities often left behind are not left behind their prioritized in terms of the administration of these vaccines have. Couldn't you have said that in less words and less gobbledygook an equitable land. He says both sides for some of the state's most diverse and poor areas and he's probably not that diversity staff members are walking around going away. Nobody likes the guy. I don't understand. What is the name of the the recall pressure that he wants to get his allies on his side here. So he's making an equity move. Ooh yeah it's it's it's always about that ultimately do you. Do you think he actually. He's he's closed all the minority schools for one year. Do you think he really cares about minorities. How could you close the schools for a year. Knowing that in favor of opening he knows rich. White people are sending their kids to private schools like he s and sending their kids to Basically homeschooling with tutors in parents basements or they're going to charter schools to go. A religious schools catholic schools right stuf open so he knows and he knows. The minority students don't have a prayer. Some of them don't have internet access. They don't have parental oversight during the day. The big sure they're online paying attention to the zoom nonsense. He knows this isn't care but you know he'll go to oakland cal state. La and say. Well we're setting up these vaccination sites because where now looking through the equity leads equity is the call of the moment so by mid-month. He says they're going to have a new centralized vaccine distribution system led by blue shield. They mentioned the insurance company. The other day he's reached some sort of a deal with them and he's already feeling the heat because blue shield is given to his governor governor campaigns. I got i got a secret source that Sent me the document Blue shield spent two hundred thousand dollars to one of newsome's campaigns His ballot initiative prior. Oh no in november. Like oh i'll fan pains. Two hundred grand went to his campaigns. Yeah he's got like a general campaign fund for nations. Whatever they decide they're going to support so blue shield spent two hundred thousand dollars on that. There's a particular lobbyists they will get into this tomorrow. Because i'm trying to get more information. There's a particular lobbyist who also brokered the deal for the one billion dollar masks with that Billion dollars worth of mask of this mysterious chinese company right. Why okay so this. This lobbyists worked on the byu billion dollar basque deal. He worked on the blue shield deal and was he at the french laundry that night. That's currently being investigated. Because he's a hell of lobbyist put. You were serious. I don't know. I don't know possibly so we'll well you know. Blue shield has an interest. Because there's a push and one of the big supporters of gavin newsom is the healthcare workers who want to go with the socialized medicine in california. That could damage companies. Like blue shield right if you Suddenly have the government's string all the payments. And by just i think that's why they want to keep their hands in the coincidence blueshield donates two hundred thousand dollars and then they get the contract for the next day. Do a good job. Oh i know. I don't get these vaccines out there. I'm not going to quibble. But i you know that's that's kind of how it works right. You want a front row seat. You gotta pay to play. We got more coming up. John and ken. Kfi all credit go. You know we have to come together. That's wide running. I'm running as a democrat for the senate democratic caucus effective strategy. Soon ourselves with the job. You're live dog freeze pony show by the way jilin. I've always enjoyed christopher jackson. I should say together on the trail. Taras took it occurs to james. Same reason for secretary of health and education nominated hobby. Airbus career healthcare's a privilege rock. And i think it's a right for people added we'd like to formally welcome you to the rest home of all. Joe walk him to biden. Ville everyone to give you a tour of biden ville before your extended stay. Here's john and ken thank you. Thank you very much here. In biden ville very pleasant other birds just pooped on me or having such a nice time. I know but out of the home in the yard on the bench with the sunshine and the birds gathering. And i need a towel accent. That's good luck. is it good. Lots of eric told me to tell you that. I have heard that before you have heard. Yeah yeah we'll see a bird poops on you on for good luck. It's happened to me before. I even find you. You're so tiny it's it had okay. Anyway we get the bag of birds. See we're sitting out here. I this is a bit of a head scratcher. Let's see if we can describe this and then we'll play the clip. It is old joe. And i think what we're seeing here is a puppet who has been told to read this because you need to virtue signal. The woke crowd. That's not happy with law enforcement. That's sort of the underplay here. I think is what would be the best way to describe it. We had a terrible situation happened yesterday. In south florida when fbi agents went to serve a search warrant upon a home in a child porn case the creep inside shot right to the door. He killed two agents. He wounded three more agents. Daniel alphand and laura schwarzenberger. Were the two that were killed. This is six in the morning. This man apparently was divorced. Father of three took his own life biden. Decided i should issue a statement since caesar federal agents. And it's the right thing for the president to say something but there's one part of it. That as i mentioned a minute ago has people kind of scratching their heads for the guy in the hole. Let's listen by rs. Vast majority women are decent honorable people. The vast majority of law enforcement officers are decent honorable people. Now why did he have to put in that little disclaimer. That's what i mean by trying dash signal the woke crowd that has their doubts about law enforcement. You do that on a day to to. Fbi agents died three more hurt. You just send your sympathies. Why did you have to say the vast majority. They asked his press secretary today. That that jen psaki. It's a great name. Sounds like a drink. It's chaser and she goes it just it she. Her answer was is exactly what he meant. But why did he have to say it. Isn't that assumed. He felt all law enforcement or bad actors. But why do you have to announce it like you're very knowledge this for my crowd. That doesn't like law but you see. He was uncomfortable saying nice things about the cops. He was uncomfortable so he kind of had to have to acknowledge it in an awkward way. You didn't have to say anything. It's assumed that most of the nearly all the police are are decent and honorable.
