"I'm Rachel Martin and I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning. Many states have online dashboards to report Covid 19 numbers, but some took them down or stopped updating them frequently when case numbers dropped sharply last winter, seemed like the pandemic was almost over, didn't it? Now, with numbers surging again. Some states are still not updating their covid data and public health experts say that's a problem. Will Bauer of Nebraska public media reports For more than a year, Nebraska's Covid dashboard displayed loads of information, including new case numbers for every county in the state. At the end of June, Republican Governor Pete Ricketts shut the dashboard down cases, hospitalizations and deaths were at all time lows, and Ricketts said the staff publishing the covid data were needed elsewhere. A month later, though, case counts were rising sharply again. Now there 15 times higher than when the dashboard went away. Reporters asked Rick It's about that. We have no announcement with regard to the dashboard at this time. One reason rickets shut down the dashboard when Case numbers dropped is because Nebraska counties have fewer than 20,000 residents. And he said publishing County level Cova data could violate state and federal health privacy laws. We have HIPAA laws. That we have to follow and concerns about that. Privacy is one of the reasons why we can't break down that granular data, But Nebraska's former state epidemiologist, Dr Tom, so frantic isn't buying it. I've never seen anyone dictate the data like this should not be disclosed. He says. He never got a complaint about data he released violating HIPPA or harming an individual in three decades as Nebraska's epidemiologist. And that failing to report important data now is quote public health for malpractice. Dr. Tom Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Under President Obama says it's possible to release detailed numbers without violating privacy and privacy laws. For example, you wouldn't want to say we have this many cases of this age, race, ethnicity and gender, But you can say how many cases total that doesn't violate anyone's confidentiality and people in Nebraska want to know the numbers people like Lucas Peterson In the beginning of the pandemic. I was calling my doctor pretty much every day. At that point, Peterson is immuno compromised. He's a supervisor for the food and beverage department at an arena in the capital city, Lincoln. Job that puts him in contact with people from all across the state. He checks covid trends regularly through the county Health Department website and what's in the local newspaper? But as the Delta variant has caused a new wave, he's largely blind to trends across the state. It would be helpful if the governor were to not have stalled the reporting statewide. Because we would then be able to capture that information for those people coming in. So that's why I have a lot of caution and a lot of concern Statewide. The current covid surge in Nebraska has risen as high as it was last fall. Just before it reached its peak. Former CDC director Dr Tom Frieden says Americans continue to need good, detailed covid data You need to know in essence, how hard it's raining Covid outside So that you can make a decision as to whether you're going to go out whether you're going to wear a mask. What kind of a mask where you're going to go to a restaurant or not? Without the data. Some say Nebraskans will continue to feel like they're flying blind. For NPR news. I'm Will Bauer in Lincoln, Nebraska. Arizona. Now, starting next year, lawyers there will no longer be able to dismiss potential jurors before trial without stating a reason why Arizona will be the first state to eliminate so called peremptory challenges under a groundbreaking rule change approved recently by the Arizona Supreme Court. Supporters say it's move designed to combat systemic discrimination that has blocked people of color from serving on Juries. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. Jury selection is often like a chess game between prosecutors and defense attorneys. What I'd like to do surveys ask you kind of a series of general questions. Eric Nelson was the defense attorney in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. Who was convicted earlier this year of the murder of George Floyd. There was intense scrutiny as attorneys began the process of trying to find the people who would be the best fit for their side of the case. You as a juror are supposed to start at kind of ground zero. Being Mr Chauvin is presumed innocent, right? Can you do that? I would like to think I could attorneys can ask a judge to remove a prospective juror for cause if they can't be impartial. There are also peremptory challenges. Attorneys have a set number of times they can dismiss people without having to say why there is no other means of skewing jury. Other than the peremptory strike. That's Peter Swan, the chief judge of the Arizona Court of Appeals. He and his colleague, appellate Judge Paul McMurdo E filed a petition asking the Arizona Supreme Court to end the use of the challenges. Peremptory challenges are designed to allow lawyers to practise intuition. But intuition can often be based on stereotypes and unconscious forms of bias. And they've been controversial ever since they were invented in the United Kingdom in the 19th century. UK and Canada no longer use the challenge is a landmark U. S. Supreme Court case in 1986. Batson versus Kentucky set restrictions. It's getting rid of a potential jurors solely based on race was unconstitutional. Prosecutors also have to provide a race neutral explanation if they dismiss a juror and the defendant thinks it was because of race. So it might have mitigated the problem a bit, but it has not been a panacea. That's Michigan State University law professor Barbara O'Brien. She and her colleague Catherine Grosso studied the impact of race on jury selection. In more than 170 death penalty cases in North Carolina and found that prosecutors struck eligible black jurors at more than twice the rate they struck. Other jurors. The Supreme Court bans dismissing potential jurors based on race, but courts rarely enforce it. Professor Grasso says it's difficult to prove discrimination as emotive as the law requires. Especially since attorneys and judges frequently worked together in the same courtroom. They all know each other and to say to someone you work with all the time you're you're a decision was racist. You exercise that because you had racist ideas, People hesitate. Many in Arizona's legal community don't support dropping peremptory challenges. They say they're needed to screen out bias jurors and eliminating them sets a bad precedent. But beginning January 1st Arizona becomes the first state to ban the practice. Other states will likely watch to see whether the legal experiment Will create a fairer jury selection process or.

Hemery server was fired, fired. She was fired after she shared a viral video of Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts. In a sports bar without a mask. This was on Election day, lady tweeted out the video of Governor Rick It's with a group of massless diners asking, quote eight. Pete, Where's your mask? She's been fired. For violating social media policy. The restaurant, are you okay with it? I'm okay with this. I understand why people are going to be upset, but the restaurant said they had a policy of no cell phones while you work. And I know if I'm sitting somewhere to bar I don't want somebody taking a random photo of me. Now I'm well aware that this governor Pete Ricketts is probably a hypocritical piece of crap. But find me a politician. That's not I just don't like going into the business of taking photos and shaming people publicly unless they've done something personal to use. Not. Ricketts is Republican That's resisted calls for a mass mandate in Nebraska. So it's like it doesn't even make sense almost that she would Server were tweeted because he hasn't been telling me. Okay, then, If that's the case, then it goes back to the store policy. If the store's policy or the restaurant's policy is, look, I don't care what's going on. I don't care if Matthew McConaughey walks in here, you don't have your cell phones out while you work and she gets it out. Well, I'm sorry. There are rules. I mean, it's like the diner. That was you know where Newsome was having dinner, the French laundry there that one of those expensive restaurants in the world right on Dat was that wasn't somebody that works there. That was somebody else that was having dinner there at that place. Because you have, like you said. He is very hypocritical. He was there in a large group more than 10 massless indoors, he said. It was outdoors very just very holier than thou rules for thee, but not for me type of thing. I'm fine with that kind of thing. I am too. But then you can't complain if you lose your job, though. You see what I'm saying? Like if the restaurant clearly states you cannot have your phone out. And you say you know what? Screw it. I don't care. I'm going to show the world that our leaders not wearing a mask here. Then you're saying damn the torpedoes! Let's go! But in this case, it's bizarre in Nebraska, because it's kind of an anti, you know, mask mandate guy and she took the photo anyway. But you know if that were your restaurant and your employees getting their phone out all the time, right? What would you do if you don't want? You know what? Anybody taking pictures of people that were in the restaurant and you know those of your customers? My customer's always right right now. If this governor Pete Ricketts had done something to this employee or something like that, all right, game on, you know, blank me blank you, but it sounds like you know, she just did it to try to get some clicks on social media. If he had called from asked mandates and gatherings less than eight and things like that, like Newsome does then maybe, but still it was against the policy of the restaurant. So and I'm reading now that she's asking for donations. Wind to stay afloat because she's claiming I'm a single mother and I'm having a hard time..

"Worked with Marianne Andrey to bring us this story from Nebraska. Back in March, My Ra Mendez started asking her dad questions about conditions at his job. Like we're supervisors handing out face masks, he said. They're giving us masks. It's like the beard net, but it's a full faced one. And so then I was like that's not going to protect you. You're still breathing in air through those holes, Mendez says. This is the moment she started to worry. Both her parents worked at Smithfield, a massive pork processing facility in Crete, Nebraska, Smithfield says they got PP Ito workers as quickly as possible, but not long after Mendez started asking questions. The plant confirmed its first case of Kobe, 19. That's when my dad started to get scared, too. It was very like it's here. It's really as the number of cases grew at the Smithfield plant, Mendez realized it was up to her to do something. She's in her late twenties and says that is the child of Mexican immigrants. She's been speaking up for her parents all her life. When they came to this country they came to just provide for their family. They didn't come to Vegas change anything. That's why you don't see a lot of workers speaking out in meatpacking towns in Nebraska and across the country, the job of advocating for basic protections like paid sick leave and pee pee. Has been shouldered by the workers. Children standing up for our parents is a responsibility in America need packing is well known as a dangerous job. Now, the long hours and close quarters make the plant susceptible to outbreaks of Corona virus. Experts suggest spacing out workers are slowing production lines that Smithfield CEO Kenneth Sullivan argues that jeopardizes the nation's food supply. Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts backed that claim and refused to close plants were working very hard to make sure they can stay open because it's vital for our food supply. Can you imagine what would happen if people could not go to the store and get food? Meanwhile, these infection spill over into the community. Data from the Food and Environment reporting network found rule counties that have meatpacking plants with outbreaks have infection rates five times higher than the rest of rule. America Mendez feared an outbreak would happen in her town since she wasn't alone. I can't remember who exactly, added us, but someone started this group chat. It was a Facebook group chat. The group chat was made up of the kids of meatpacking workers across the state who shared with each other. Their parents stories about conditions at Smithfield. Together, they decided they would take action and quickly organized a group. The Children of Smithfield, where a lot of daughters who want to advocate for our parents, the group expanded beyond the core of daughters. They held weekly demonstrations socially.

"Workers are just trying to push through trying to survive and trying to do the best that they can with what they have. She sees. Workers who have been traumatized by a lack of both resource is and protections. At times, some here blamed them for not being able to protect themselves. There have been comments like this one by Governor Pete Ricketts. What do we see in places where we see a lot of spread the virus? Well, we see people concentrate together. And that's certainly true with our food processors where you have people together, but it can also be true and households. If you have multiple generations of people living together in Nebraska, 2/3 of the meatpacking workforce is made up of immigrants. 60% of meat packers are Latino. Advocate Yolanda Nuncio finds comments like that offensive. It's much easier to say That is because the family values and family living situation than it is to say it's because perhaps working environment isn't the faces for families for employees are for the community. She says. It's not uncommon to find extended Latino and immigrant families living together for cultural reasons, but the spread of the virus wasn't a cultural issue. Scapegoating. Meatpacking workers isn't unique to Nebraska after hundreds of cases closed a Smithfield pork plant in South Dakota Governor Christie Gnome said 99% of infections started at home. In Nebraska Governor Rick It's later walked back his comments. Actually, I don't think that is something that is unique to the food processing industry. We think there's a number of people who live in housing that could be difficult to socially distance. The governor also urged Nebraskans not to stigmatize highly impacted groups like Latinos, who make up nearly half of Nebraska's covert cases. Nearly two months later, though, state Senator Tony Vargas worries the damage is already done, he says, With 23 of Nebraska's beef, pork and poultry plants reporting outbreaks, some meatpacking workers have been turned away from retail businesses, or even asked where they worked before they could get their hair cut.

Pope Francis Says Death Penalty 'Inadmissible'

"And now to the Vatican this morning pope Francis issued an edict that. The death, penalty is, inadmissible in all cases, because it has it's an attack on the dignity, of the person this is a significant change to Catholic church teachings it also means the church will work to abolish. The death penalty worldwide to talk more about this we're joined by father Thomas. Reese senior analyst for the religious news service. Welcome Oh do we have the father with. Us Good? To be with high father res can you I put this announcement in context for us because until now the death penalty, was acceptable to the, church in extreme cases but Pope John Paul the. Second had said those cases were? Practically nonexistent so how significant is this change this is a significant change because now the saying that there are no circumstances under. Which capital punishment can happen and the acceptable and so this is this is the church putting down a. Marker that capital punishment is no longer acceptable I want to pick up on the second part of the declaration that the pope me this morning that the Catholic church, will work, to abolish the death penalty worldwide practically speaking how much? Influence, will this have here in the US Well that's going to be interesting to see, you know about half, the American population supports the capital punishment in fact. On the forty three percent of? Catholics do so we got somewhere ahead of everybody else but it's gonna be a issue that the Catholic bishops will Bob beyond. That they'll teach about but it's gonna continue to be controversial I'm thinking in particular about the Catholic politicians. Who support the death penalty governor Greg Abbott of Texas Governor Pete Ricketts of Nebraska they're both Catholic and they're both governors who have presided over capital punishment in their, states I, mean where does this change to church teaching them personally Well I think it's to? The, other things that the taken positions on whether it's abortion whether it's universal healthcare in favor of that whether it's in favor of, more welcoming to migrants and refugees there's a. Lot, of things that the, church and the bitch teaching on and. Lobbying in favor of that politicians have this is just gonna. Be another, one of those issues there was another significant. Development at the Vatican this week the pope, accepted the resignation of the most senior Catholic church leader to be convicted in criminal court of, concealing sexual abuse how does this compare. To how the Vatican has responded to allegations of sexual abuse in the past, well Pope Benedict get at a good job in. Saying that the church has zero tolerance for priests that are involved in in abuse and. They can, never act as a priest again the problem was Dealing. With the bishops who didn't do a good job supervising. Their priests or we're involved in cover ups pope Francis, is drawing the line here and said you gotta do your job and if you're involved in any kind of a cover. Up you're going to be in trouble and that is really good and just stepping back really briefly? While, these two actions by pope Francis on the death penalty and on sexual abuse aren't necessarily related do they signal something bigger to, you about how this pope is trying to. Shape, the Catholic church Well I think it shows that he's concerned about the impact of Policies on people he's very concerned I mean once he started listening to victims who came to Rome and he set aside time to be with them and and was willing to talk to them and listen to them as long as they wanted this made a big difference, because this is a. Pastoral. Pope and. When he sees people hurting he wants to respond. Okay that's father Thomas. Re senior analyst for the. Religious, news service thank you very much good to be with you.
