Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes: Trump Will Use Every Opportunity To Divide People
"And I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington today, the governor and lieutenant governor of Wisconsin now President Trump to stay away from their state. So did the mayor of Kenosha, Wisconsin, who says the city needs time to heal, But the president showed up anyway. Trump's trip comes after days of unrest following the police shooting of a black man, Jacob Blake that left him hospitalized. It also comes after a white 17 year old Kyle Riton house with charged with six criminal counts, including first degree intentional homicide. Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela. Barnes, a Democrat, joins us now Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me today. We're glad to have you. Governor Tony either sent a letter asking President Trump not to visit Kenosha. You've called for him to stay away as well. Do you see any potential benefit to having him? There may be a chance to meet and talk to him in a productive way. No, I do not because if a real leader would have proven that already, he would have given words Tio help console the people of this community of people of this state and the people of this nation because what happened in Kenosha? It's something that happens all too often in this country, and the president has offered no sort of resolve. You can look at the president's invective. You can look at the RNC, which tried to capitalize all such situations, which tried to politicize People who are crying out who are stepping up marching and demanding racial justice. And Donald Trump doesn't want to hear that He is going to use every opportunity that he can to divide the people of this state. A CZ. This is a critical state for his re election, and it's unfortunate because You know, these are realize that we're talking about Governor Evers called for a special session of the Legislature on Monday to address police reform. But Republicans didn't show up and that session lasted 30 seconds. To get any legislation through. You need Republican support. Do you have a plan for how to do that? Well, eyes unfortunate that you know, we could ask. What's our plan? When the Legislature and the Republicans in the Legislature don't get asked why they continue to ignore people, it took them forever to respond. A covert 19. They haven't responded to the health care crisis. They haven't responded to the dairy crisis that our family farmers are dealing with in this country. They haven't responded to gun violence prevention. They have responded to the client. Crisis, Every issue they continue to fail and ignore the people of this state. Kenosha is the latest city to deal with protests and sometimes counter protests that have turned violent governor ever sent in the national Guard as the protests were heating up, and some protesters said that having the guards there made unrest worse. Do you think the governor made the right decision by sending in the guards? So the governor sent in the guard's ate with controlling fires that were set. You know, this is all in the interest of safety because fires can get out of control. Fire touches the wrong thing. You have explosions that you can potentially have more loss of life. That was the purpose of the National Guard. I think what protesters were experiencing Was a heightened response from from law enforcement and the press conference that happened shortly after the young man who traveled to Wisconsin from Illinois to kill two people in our streets. The response was well, maybe if people weren't out past curfew, ignoring the fact that you're the shooter was also out past curfew. So to assign blame to that the victims that shows where we are in in terms of thought with some of the local law enforcement that's on the ground, and this is the reforming accountability that we're talking about. Whatever the reason, the guard was there, even if it was just to try to put out or prevent fires. It ends up being a law enforcement presence, the presence of authorities and this is the dilemma. I think for city and state leaders, how do you control what could become violent unrest? Without making people feel that the feds were storming in or with a guard is storming in. That's a really hard dilemma. Have you figured out the right balance of that? Is something that is a learning process. If I'm going to be completely honest, and and I I always I always promoted the fact that law enforcement should continuously Work to deescalate situations. Whether it is a or a personal interaction like the one with Jacob Blake and the three officers or whether we're talking larger scale events like protests and demonstrations. I think that you often see peaceful protest turned the other way when there is a heightened presence of what is perceived as authorities. So yeah, I do think there is there is a there is a problem. Because when people are protesting police, you know aggression with police overly aggressive police. The response cannot be over overly aggressive law enforcement. How to deal with violent unrest is becoming a major issue in the presidential campaign, and many Democrats who do not support President Trump worry that violent unrest helps him. That it lets him say the Democrats are weak on crime. What's your level of concern that you may be inadvertently helping President Trump's reelection efforts in that way? You know, I think that it's important for people to realize that again. The people who were killed. In Kenosha, where protesters they were killed by people who felt that they had a responsibility to help things to help matters to assist Now, like you mention Law enforcement are air National guards are there. They didn't eat health. Yet. These people are free to just walk the streets with long rifles, intimidating people. I think that is the important thing that people need to realize. Andi. I hope that folks to understand that Republicans continue to enable this sort of behavior this sort of behavior. That actually leads people did That's Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela. Barnes. Thank you for coming on the program. Thank you.

"Recall movement, it's not going to change many minds more over and I think the most salient point is this that all of our efforts As conservatives as Republicans, as people who care about the rule of law and care about good governance should be focused on voting out and keeping out of power. The people who have failed Wisconsin and who have failed this country in every city across America. There have been riots for months now in Democrat controlled cities. Now we've got a presidential candidate, and Joe Biden, who, instead of calling for calm for largely his supporters. I would I would defy you to name me Cem. Rioters who are voting for Donald Trump, for goodness sakes. Now, apparently in a speech in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Biden is going to blame Trump for the rioting. So all of our effort needs to be stopping him stopping Democrats from getting any more control over things that they can quite literally destroy. We have a Herculean task. To deliver Wisconsin for Donald Trump and for the Republican Party again to save Wisconsin from the angry mob that wants Joe Biden to win. That is demanding that trump lose or else the implicit threat here. Is that if you don't vote for the guy that the mob wants you to, there will be more mob violence. The way to stand up for that is to focus all of your energy. Not on something that is destined to fail like a recall of Governor Evers, But in the immediate we have got two months. Literally a month in a couple of less than a month, less that we are less It's August 31st voting in Wisconsin starts in what one month from today. October 1st. So we have got one month to make the case before votes start being passed that the way to stop the mob the way to stand up to a liberal failure. And liberal tyranny of violence is to vote.

Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes comments on Jacob Blake shooting
"Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes, commenting yesterday on what should and should not be investigated between the Jacob Lake Police involved shooting and the Kyle Rittenhouse case. The shooting and killing of Two rioters. Injuring of another guy's investigation is ongoing. But we don't need an investigation and know that Blake shooting falls in a long and painful pattern of violence, and this is a pattern of violence that happens against black lives too often. Across this country. And as you all know, we saw even more gun violence unfold on Tuesday night when two protesters were tragically killed in one other injured by gunshots. Someone that wasn't looking to keep peace. An outside agitator. Someone who came in from Illinois with a long rifle was able to just walk the streets freely like that something normal that we just come to expect me till you have not anything normal. We shouldn't come to expect that We shouldn't accept it. Because what do you think is going to happen if you haven't agitated man with a long walking down the street? Thinking that he's some sort of peacekeeper, and that kind of behavior shouldn't be enabled, either, And we have to deal with the devastating results of that way. Saw that happen in Louisville already. We saw it happen in Charlottesville. Somebody ran their vehicle to protesters ahead there. Higher was killed now. Kenosha, Wisconsin is also home to that sort of tragic scene. We have to Not ever want to see that happen again. Hey, Lieutenant Governor Barnes. What about in Seattle? Where Ah, Two people were murdered inside the Chazz Chop Autonomous. Own father of 19 Year old was murdered. Just filed a $3 billion lawsuit against the city. What about the violence there? What about Violence against police officers, including committed by Jacob Blake, resisting arrest prior to him being shot. Is that something that's relevant the number of times that Jacob Lake had to comply with police officers before it escalated to the shooting. And while we're manufacturing characterizations of Kyle Riton house, what about the actual records of not only the writers who were killed A convicted sex offender who was according to New York Times reporting, charging Riton house a somebody who was convicted of unlawful use of a weapon and in time public intoxication, who was shot and wounded. The other individual also The other individual killed. The other writer killed also criminal record. Should we talk about Jacob Lakes from El Record and what he was doing at his ex girlfriend's house in the first place? If you want to provide context in the conversation, fine, let's do it across the board and let's separate what we actually know. Versus what the left is hoping is true. Hoping something is true versus what you actually know, are two different things. What's the evidentially standard for making determinations about prosecution's about judgment calls? It seems that one of the questions that Governor Evers and lieutenant Governor Barnes and federal politicians from Diana Presley Kamala Harris to Joe Biden Don't want to comment on is that interesting

"When I first read Governor Evers initial Statement. I just stick my head. Guys, This isn't helpful. This is this is insightful. My initial statement was asking for calm on all five. I was asking for people to allow justice. Our system the chance to work to provide the type of justice that we all want to give the facts to find out exactly what happened. I just feel story for Just about everybody involved. Step for the riders, except for those who have incited all this, But you know, people come up and start protecting their property. Then get caught up in this stuff. I mean, the parents of people just it's just a tragedy. Piled on top of tragedy. And why do we have these tragedies Because elect officials across the country have not stepped up the plate and have not maintained or know that, in fact, they had both a TTE, least in the case of Tony Evers and Mandela Barnes, they encouraged Dis Order they encourage disorder. People protecting their property have been accused of being vigilantes, people protecting their homes accused of being vigilantes. That isn't what a vigilante is Someone practicing home defense. Personal defense under the law, and the Constitution are not vigilantes, vigilantes or people who decide they're going to make up the law because they're not happy with the way the law is, and then they go out to execute it. That's not What people who are protecting businesses in Kenosha. We're doing that what the mob was doing, though they don't like the law. They decided to take the law into their own hands, and they have decided that they're mob justice in the form of burning buildings, looted businesses and people beaten within an inch of their lives is the way it's going to be. Now, that's there, there a mob, But they sure come closer to vigilante than the folks protecting businesses in Kenosha again when, when the elected officials don't protect Streets when they don't accept their responsibility and make sure that they provide the overwhelming manpower to keep peace When you have Mob rules trying to take over. What do those elected officials expect ordinary citizens are going.

You throw the core away. But everybody takes bite. The core is the recall in so i. do what we need though is. We need to have those third party groups, or some of those other people out there who know how to kind of pull big things together to to recognize that this is something that I think is doable now. Someone just emailed me and said well if we recall. Recall Tony vs that mean. We have Mandela Barnes the Lesser Mandela. Would he be governor? Know if we if we were successful in in recalling Tony Evers, it would tee up a special election. Tony ears would run against another candidate. That's what would happen. Let's go to Joe I think in Beaver Dam. Hard time seeing my screen. I think it's Joe Hi Joe. Just wondering though, and you just hit on. That point is who are we to put up against Tony? I gotTA TAKE! Let's just throw some names out all right. Let's throw some names out here David, Clarke Rebecca Klay. Fish Leah Vouk mayor. You know anybody else Geez I mean. We've got some people who are who are otherwise occupied right now, so we could. We probably could find Sean Duffy. Sean? Duffy is right now. Otherwise occupied. I think we could find a pretty dynamic person. In the event that we're successful and again, even if you're not successful, then you've you've your. Goal is to keep McKenna. O! I'll tell you what I. Tell You. What if nobody else wants the job and in people are successful in doing this then you know if everyone else takes a pass. I I I'll be your huckleberry. Governor, Vic. Thanks man I the call. I appreciate the call. There's a ton of dynamic conservatives tons. That and again remember I. Don't WanNa I. DON'T WANNA. Tell you. This is a sure thing, but it's not it's. It's not an insurmountable. Mountain. This isn't and I like to use this analogy that I created myself called. It's not roller skating backward up a mountain. That's not what it is. It is a difficult task that would require an enormous amount of enthusiasm from the Republicans, but. Are you enthusiastic? Do you see what's happening to your country? Do you see what's happening to your state? Do you see what is happening to American cities? Do you see what is potentially coming next? Milwaukee announced today that it was going to deny the Milwaukee Police Department dollars to purchase tear gas for crowd control at the DNC so presumably the city of Milwaukee wants to see occupation and Bernie Bros..

"Thirteen, ten I'll be right back. Let's see how viable. This idea would be it all depends. The idea is to recall. Tony. And all depends on whether or not people are willing to circulate petitions whether people are willing to. Sign up and volunteer to do this to go. Stand outside a grocery store or Walmart or something like that and get petition signed. In and to do this, I think would absolutely. It would amp up an angry conservative base that right now has nothing to do with their frustration, and the frustration is everything by the way from being told a get on their knees. Let Their police forces be defended by the way the figurehead of that movement in Wisconsin's Tony. Never mind. The governor is single handedly responsible for making sure that we are in a world of hurt. When it comes to our economy, our our families jobs. Our livelihoods sue from Vernon. Thank you for calling welcome to the program. You'll so so go sue sorry I personally would be willing to do that and my second question is. I would hope that we have a lot of helpers. Out there, still waiting for unemployment, would they not be a good chunk of them willing to help with sure like this? Don't use facebook. There's a facebook page I looked at because I have a grandson whose waiting. It's not critical like some folks I. Get it, but the facebook page out there where the all conversing all the time everything going Stewart problems and you know calling and on. On hold and connected at five o'clock, and on and I, and I would think you know that would be another good communication mechanism. Get people interested. Yeah, I also think it is a way for the Republicans to get their message out even though this wouldn't be republican per se because the GOP. The party's not going to be part of this. Just like the party technically wasn't part. Part of it when they went after Scott Walker, but yeah, I think this is also a way to expose people who might be in a kind of a political narrative vacuum to a different perspective and and Joss. Listening to people explain what the problem is with this guy and the problem is with this guy. He doesn't want to govern Wisconsin. He wants to rule Wisconsin he's now teeing. teeing up.

"If it were a broadcaster doing this week, someone would come after us. That's a guarantee, so you know the idea that somehow he gets to. He gets to skate because he doesn't want to take responsibility for being a Nick Sonian sleazebag. And he wants to dump it on a staffer, and then the a staffer gets to escape. He's got rogue people in his administration and nobody wants to do anything about that and nobody's interested in making sure that the law is followed in the state of Wisconsin is. That is something I'm telling you right now. People if nothing happens here, people are going to be really angry. People are going to be angry if no one is actually brought to account at least in the form of an ethics investigation. I mean previous governors would have never stood for this. somebody would have been terminated immediately, and then probably some more of the facts would have come out after that but dope fire. They're just stonewalling this whole thing you know. He did a presser this afternoon. He didn't answer any questions about this. Or any other open records requests that quite honestly they have just been either full out denying or sitting on for months and months and months. I mean this continues to be the pattern with the administration so now let me ask this question. Both UN Speaker Voss indicated that the you know the commute, the relationship, the working relationship between the legislature, the majority in the legislature, and the governor is now irrevocably broken. Yeah I. Mean you know there's many different paths? You can go down when you're trying to build some report. oftentimes, it's directly with the governor other times that you know the cheapest they or somebody else at a cabinet level that you can work with and then the other thing is you know sometimes it through the legislature. I mean a member of the minority that you talk. Talk to has a relationship with the governor. That doesn't even exist in the state. Senate right now so I'm not sure where we go from here. He's got a request that he sent us this this week. To talk about a few items and I'm like. How could we tackle leaving forward with that? At this point I don't trust anybody in the room. Let alone you know being. Being on a conference call with the governor there I mean there's no way you're going to be able to repair that anytime soon. No kidding so now you're thinking. I'm not going to have a conversation because this guy is gonNA. Try to use this to hang me We're nine hundred thirty six million dollars. Almost a billion dollars in tax revenue collections that means the state of. Of Wisconsin is going to be pulling up short about a billion dollars more than that likely, because it's likely that June also comes in lower than June of twenty, nine thousand nine, so we just had an announcement yet another major closing in Wisconsin with a thousand people losing their jobs nine hundred directly from the paper mill that closed in another hundred in support to that paper mill. We keep seeing businesses. By. To. Their doors for good in our state by the damage that was done by an arbitrary shutdown down, and we know it was arbitrary because you said you know just a couple of minutes ago, you at home depot or the or the grocery stores were packed to the Gills, and somehow he didn't have spikes in cove nineteen..

"Fell swoop for judges who didn't really care about. What the statutes talk about have thrown our state into chaos. Where the wild West Sally? We there are. There are no restrictions at all across the state of Wisconsin. The League in this state can send messages the emails to members saying we're open tonight. We're going to have more cases and more deaths and it's it's sad. It's a sad occasion for the state. I can't tell you how disappointed after the court's ruling Dane County announced that it will not lift the stay at home restrictions in that county. Madison is the largest city in Dane. County joining us now. The Democratic Mayor of Madison Wisconsin sought yet roads Conway. Thank you very much for joining US tonight. You just heard the governor call up the wild west year state of Wisconsin which we think of as more mild mannered than that usually. But what is going to happen tomorrow? Well you know it really is disappointing. This ruling the Supreme Court here has thrown us into chaos without a plan but as usual local government is on the front lines of this pandemic and here in Madison Dane County. We are continuing on with At home orders at show at least in Madison tomorrow morning is going to be just the same as it was this morning. And so do the counties now have the authority to the Supreme Court in effect. Just leave it open so that the counties do still have authority to exercise if they want to correct. The county's authority is based on a different statute then the health secretary's so we do still have that level of local control. Let's take a look at some polling about what is really happening in Wisconsin. The way people really feel about the governor for example Governor Evers has a sixty four percent approval in Wisconsin. A DONALD TRUMP has a forty four percent approval in Wisconsin. Fifty one percent disapproval in Wisconsin. And and so. It's very clear that the majority of voters support the governor across the board on this And so what do you expect the behavior to be given that most people are are now internalizing these rules for their own safety. What do you expect to see? Generally in Wisconsin tomorrow beyond Madison. Listen safer at home. Order has been working that we have been effectively. Flattening are curve certainly here in Madison. But we do have problems across the state. We have hot spots and so I'm actually quite worried that we're going to see an increase in cases because of this order and it's really irresponsible. This is the same Supreme Court that thought. It was a good idea for us to hold an election during pandemic as a result dozens and dozens of people have gotten sick. The court didn't learn from that experience and they've opened up the state without a plan. It learns this is what happens when you mix politics with pandemic planning. Yeah and the Milwaukee paper saying that the governor and the legislature going to have to work together. There's polling information on that Fifty three percent and Wisconsin Support they trust the governor And only thirty three percent trust the legislature. So He's far ahead of them on that we'll see how they work it out. Madison Mayor Sought Roads Conway. Thank you very much for joining our discussion tonight. Really appreciate it thank you. It's a pleasure. Thank you. The leader of the world's fifth largest economy is trying to manage a careful and gradual reopening of businesses.
Wisconsin voters to go to the polls Tuesday, despite "stay-home" order
"You know Wisconsin is apparently the only one of eleven states were able primaries that's going to have in person voting meaning you have to get out of your house where you've been told to stay and go to a place in public where you've been told to avoid stand in line to touch things other people have been touching all the other ten of either delayed their primaries are shifted to by mail only voting but not Wisconsin and it went right down to the wire they're still trying to figure this out last night how they're gonna handle all this so we want to get a handle on it find out what's going on what is the latest what this means for Wisconsin and the voters there so let's bring in correspondent with me while good morning morning here Michael well what it what do you know what's the latest in terms I I guess this is as far as we know it's still happening today isn't it yes that's correct so basically the last ditch effort by the Democratic Party in Wisconsin if you appeal to the state's top health official her name entry appall mainstage you know please if you cannot shut this down it similar to what the top official in Ohio did when court said look you've got to go on with your primary so we will find out I would if you're within a matter of minutes if not hours if that changes anything but at this point everything is going on at the White House several months ago if there had been no corona virus that are plowing forward Michael yeah we're gonna be hearing about the selection for a long time because I have a feeling no matter what happens not so much in the presidential primaries I think that's probably a safe bet that Joe Biden whose health held a pretty wide lead in the polls will will do well but in terms of all these local elections that are taking place is this going to be controversy because you know what the side that's not on top is going to say well this was all screwed up people didn't know until the morning of if it was even going to happen and we're being told to stay home afraid to go out you have the National Guard there because you don't have any poll workers who will show up I mean this this doesn't seem like it's going to be a clean election eight it really depends on who you ask so it's you know somebody that people who are advocating for continuing forward with the Primeira merry at a knowledge you've got a perfect situation but they feel like this is the best option to proverbial ready of the elections that they say look you can't have thousands upon thousands of absentee ballots rolling and even days and days after the election I think this is organized you have to go forward with the plan as it originally was to preserve the integrity of the election as you point out people who want to move the primary state how can you ask people to choose between their health and their I have no ability to do their like that officials so it really depends on who you ask I think everyone acknowledges eat a pretty awful situation and it's actually one of the reasons that the DNC it back when Ohio had seen very similar chaos for an entire day back and forth whether or not the election is going to happen she said yeah he said it we have to try to avoid these chaotic situations and hope and ensure that voters feel confident in the process so to that end don't move these primaries at the last minute but instead put more effort into giving voters an alternative way to about that with the official work but the DNC and I think finally Michael what's really interesting about the stories that showed how differently the party's function on the state level so here in Wisconsin it would be big Republican push to try to keep the primary place in Ohio the Republican governor who wanted to move it the DNC again saying they don't want to see these last minute changes so you're it's really hard to draw party line parallels of opinion between all of the state and all of these different situations so I actually think that that's one of the more interesting things to watch how how differently these local elections play out in the consequence the technician Michael and then you have the governor there governor Evers who had kept saying I don't have the authority to just move the election or or change it but and he tried to do that yesterday through this executive order delaying the primary until June in less he and the legislature got some other deal going and then at that that ends up before the state Supreme Court which says forget that you're gonna hold the thing that went to the Supreme Court of the United States although there what there does seem to be an ideological break down because the there the Republicans control the or have the majority in the both the state and the national Supreme Court and all the Republican race you know I wanted to to go ahead and vote today so if you know you're kind of a reversal there from the governor but what's going to happen now how are they going to run this thing are are all the polls polling place is going to be open well there are limited polling places in in certain areas where he is so for example I think in the Milwaukee area there will be five polling places opened so with limited polling but the they are allowing absentee ballots to move forward on it they were postmarked by Tuesday so there is that option but yeah I think it's a messy situation you're right he said the courts were rolling out these pieces are certainly split ideologically and beat it's so similar to how Ohio was trying to move back its primary there were points where people would say it was unclear who had the authority to do what if you at one point but there were a lot of questions about why the governor of Ohio even went to the court to begin with if you had the executive authority to move the primary back so it is a there's a big gap back in force very similar in Wisconsin and I think at the end of the day you have attorneys or analyzing a lot they can think we can I think we can do this I think this is an Avenue and are just throwing any option basically during any options at the wall to try to figure out how to affect what they believe is the most is it the most proper outcome Michael yeah so that they had quite a few more requests than usual for the absentee ballot seventy I don't I don't have the official numbers on how many at the ballot they would normally have but as far as I know the state there had been a one point three million absentee ballots requested and I think around half a million had not yet been returned so does the number there I'm not I don't know off the top of my head now how many they would not they may not know themselves at this point because I think they're still trying to figure that out last night so just we should let our our listeners in Wisconsin though that that the absentee ballots if you're going to hand deliver them you have to do it by tonight or if they have to be postmarked today although they can arrive at the clerk's office is as late as April thirteenth the problem is that the folks are unhappy with that same with a lot of people you know they didn't even request them until you know late in the opportunity to do that and now they may not have because it not the mail is not perfectly running on time that they may not even receive them yet so they may be effectively disenfranchised there and can you look at what we got about we've got about a minute or so left and I'm just wondering if if anybody's talking about what this means for November when we have a presidential election because we may still be it will you know I I don't think this corona virus epidemic is going to be completely over it this could affect and we could be in a second wave in November what's this going to mean to voting for president you know it's really hard to say and I think part of that is because any change to the voting process to become highly politicised at that very evident by what's going on with content and Ohio so I think it's really difficult to say if there will be a monumental shift in the way that voters are given the opportunity to vote so we'll have to see it hopefully by the fall of error if you don't act unlikely that we'll have a vaccine but they will at least know more about how the virus is transmitted they'll have more resources to try to fight the virus so scientifically speaking medically speaking the landscape could be very different by November but it's far is the changes to the way people are allowed to vote if that really comes down to is the state Election Commission that we'll have to see it because the older electrical took or although I will say we were seven months out presumably to be able to come to some kind of class hi November out instead of these last minute changes because with with the primary it's pretty bad with the general election that you have people not confident in their vote in the general elections in a presidential election I mean that would have really terrifying I think

attempt to cut the prison population in half I have some additional thoughts calls or text us and the acting it mortgage talking text line seven nine nine one six twenty seven nine nine one six twenty Kyle from Tulsa texted in he's pretty quick in St we don't need a prison break we need a cultural shift with that other Steve from Grafton Steve appreciate you hang on what are your thoughts on this topic should governors cut the prison population and if so how does he do that Richard colored by whatever the person or whatever to deter crime does what the punishment should be here all figure back there's no call for them to be imprisoned for what they do and they're just sitting there are you know you know time up while we're paying for it you know what day did yesterday she gets in return you know that's that's my philosophy should all you want to go to prison thing at all you know women aged people first you know that you were going to put him in jail the next thing you know they're gonna be back all doing the same thing over and over again thank you for the call Steve there certainly is an issue of recidivism and people coming in to the prison system being released and then unfortunately coming back a couple of other things to discuss in this area first of all the Wisconsin prison system as currently constructed is over capacity the prison population in Wisconsin or I should say the prison system is designed to hold about eighteen thousand inmates it's currently holding a twenty three thousand inmates that certainly causes problems it's cause problems certainly in juvenile facilities it's cause problems with correctional officers it's cause problems in population it well upon which is one of our maximum security facilities governor YVR is as he discusses this matter I think he sort of he sort of I I don't mean this to sound too harsh these little bit in the dark I I think he's a little bit out of his element I think governor Walker made a mistake when he was in office for eight years and he never visited a prison facility I in my rule I have visited many many prisons over the years judges in Wisconsin are actually required to visit prisons periodically I've been to Green Bay correctional I've been a wall pawn I've been to the juvenile facilities I've been to rid the Racine youthful offenders facility just to be clear as a visitor I've been to all those places as a visitor one of the things that governor YVR suggests is and all of our readers quote when we have people whose lives are being turned around in a negative way because they're incarcerated either for too long for crimes that don't need incarceration that's a moral issue for me I think that's why it's important he says that's why we're going to be successful from my standpoint with all due respect to the governor the prison system in Wisconsin is at the end of sort of a funnel you only get to the Wisconsin state prison system after you've been through a long line of the justice system you've been arrested for a crime you've been investigated by the police department the sheriff's department possibly the district attorney's office you had charges referred to the DA's office or to the attorney general's office to the local charging authority they review the charges so you're ready through sort of two steps of the process there if the district attorney's office decides to pursue charges then there has to be a finding of probable cause you go in front of a judge or a commissioner if you hear she finds probable cause the case progresses into the criminal justice system with criminal charges the one thing that I think needs to be made clear and I hope the governor and his people understand this and and and there are some state assembly pull some state representatives who are involved in this push or this movement as well a representative Shraddha who's a Republican from Oshkosh and representative Evan going key who's a Democrat from Milwaukee I know Mr Cokie he used to be a public defender in Milwaukee he's a very bright guy very very well meaning but one of the things that everyone needs to understand is that the prison system and the judges I should say already final out many many people hundreds actually thousands of people are set on other paths to deal with their problems other than prison governor YVR suggests and it's been suggested by him and others the well we should do more diversion programs I can tell you that there are many many diversion programs in Milwaukee county the district attorney Mister Chisholm is very very proactive on diversions he tries to keep people out of jail and out of the prison system in appropriate system inappropriate situations excuse me and the judges do that away as well when we come back I want to talk real briefly about the make up of the prison population in Wisconsin and then have interesting stuff story changing topics completely from Peggy Noonan about president trump
