"You're listening to far. Um I mean, akin, we're talking about the story of Rianna Taylor, the 26 year old emergency medical technician in Louisville, Kentucky, who was killed by police during a drug raid on her home in March of this year. We're talking with Rukmini Callimachi correspondent for The New York Times and with you, our listeners. Let me go to Brian Enrichment. Hi, Brian. I want to thank Miss Callum AKI for her reporting very good, except that it took a very long time in this interview's herded nation, the fact that a policeman was shot in the thigh. Bye. Briana Taylor's boyfriend, and my point is, is that part of this? Is that sure He's a licensed gun owner. The sad part is that you have a state that allows for stand your ground. And so here, all of a sudden, you have him shooting at the police officer hitting me now we have the fog of war situation with police are shooting back. And this is a problem with the nation's gun laws that allows this to happen as sad as that happen to Ms Briana Taylor over the bad for what happened. Ultimately, she's a victim of the nation's gun laws. And I would like calamari to be two least. I have some kind of response to what I said. Yes, Ruby. You have also written about just how the standard ground laws and also the statute that protects police officers clashed in this case. Yes, I mean, it's it's It's a tragic instance where two statutes that provide two different types of rights essentially collided with each other in the hallway of beyond Taylor's home. A cz, The listener all correctly pointed out there. There is a stand your ground statute in Kentucky and actually in a lot of other states, which allows a resident inside their own home. Tio Tio use that the force if they believe that an intruder is coming through the door. This is a law that actually eyes not is has been codified in state statute. It goes all the way back to what's known as the castle doctrine in English common law always back to to England, and it protected subjects of the king from unreasonable searches of their home. At the same time, you have a statute in Kentucky and in many other states that allows a police officer to use that the force in self defense So the police are coming in with a legal search for mint. They enter her house. We can We can discuss the fact that they didn't properly announced, but they did have a legal right to be there. Kenny Walker does not realize that their police he should set them He is allowed to do so under under the stand your ground statute. But the two officers at the door who turned fire most likely are also covered under the consent Kentucky statute that allows them in turn to fired back in self defense. That's why the third officer, this is the one who, after Brianna Taylor has already most likely been shot. He runs out onto the street, and he peppers her apartment from outside the apartment with at least 10 rounds. That's why his actions have really come under a lot of scrutiny because there is to my knowledge, no statute that protects her. Well, Nancy writes. Excellent. Riveting reporting many thanks, Rukmini Callimachi. I mean, At the time that she was killed Hannah Taylor. She had big plans, didn't she? She did. Brianna Taylor. I learned I was a young woman who was dealt a really tough deck in life. She was born to a teenage mom. Her mom was just 16 when she gave birth to her on her dad was incarcerated when she was around six years old on drug and murder charges and spent the rest of her life in gym. But early on what you see in her is a desire to a desire to do better, a desire to to go beyond what her limited circumstances might have dictated. She's the first person in her her family to graduate from high school she done goes on on and spend some time at the local university. On and she ends up working and healthy and health care. She gets her e M T certification. And then she's working as an architect at a local hospital. You see on her social media profile that for many years, she struggled with her finances. She put out tweets about how she couldn't even afford her own groceries. But by 2020. Things have turned around for her. She had saved up enough money. To buy a brand new car. She she was planning to buy herself a house on crucially she had she had committed to Kenny Walker, who, by all accounts was a really nice man, and she had left behind an ex boyfriend. That that had been involved in drugs and that had whose actions had repeatedly essentially entangled her in the police run ins that he was having. Let me go to color Mike. Next in Granite Bay High, Mike I just thought that Briana Taylor's case could be like a poster child for D funding our disastrous long term war on drugs. More on drugs. He has Rukmini Callimachi need Brandy Taylor. Many ways actually become an icon. For many things. Can you talk a little bit about the impact that she's had and whether or not it is causing people to really question the kinds of tactics we use related to drug crimes? Yeah, I think that isthe one takeaway that certainly my colleague Your Aborigine has has put front and center in the documentary that we made on her case. In the end, this entire tragedy was about drugs was about, you know, trying to stop the flow of drugs. And as we've discussed, the search warrant for her house was a lot thinner than the search warrants for the other locations that were actively involved in drug trafficking, and it begs the question. Is it worth taking these enormous risks for A pile of drugs. And I think that the city of Louisville has has pretty affirmatively said No because they have now banned no knock warrants altogether. Thie idea being the whole notion of why you have a no knock warrant so that you can have the element of surprise to go in and upset a criminal enterprise. Why do you want element of surprise? Because people can take it? If you give morning. People can take the time. To try to destroy evidence. What people in what officials have told me in the city of Louisville is that if between the time you knock on somebody's door on, and they come to the door, which, how long is that going to be a couple minutes, 10 minutes. If in that amount of time you could destroy the evidence of your drug dealing And perhaps that's not evidence that's that's worth getting. You should do a no knock entry. If you are, if you're going to save a human life, like in a hostage situation or in a in a in a in a child abuse situation, But to do it for drugs just seems like a bit of our oven overreach, which has in this case, and others had disastrous calls. Yes, and you also talked about people who are You know, experts who are suggesting that this could be the death knell of the no knock warrant as well, Just given these types of circumstances, but that certainly doesn't bring Taylor back, and she really has captured The imagination. I mean, the hashtag say her name. She's been on the cover of Vanity Fair in Vogue and Oprah Winfrey has also highlighted her in the Oprah magazine and Can you just also talk about the larger structures that Briana Taylor's death also sort of indict CE to some extent, right in terms of what happens to black women victims relative to other people who are killed? Yeah. You know, I spent a lot of time in Louisville digging into the backgrounds of these three officers to see, in fact, if I could find a pattern of racist behavior And I couldn't find direct evidence of racism on for those three officers, But where I think you have the systemic piece is that we? We never hear of this kind of raid and this kind of tragedy happening to a white woman. We don't hear of this happening and middle class or upper middle class households..

"Well I have a great idea for how we can greet one another I'm big on that so I think that just like the old westerns you could you know just kind of grow into that if you're a Republican use your right hand if you're Democrat use your left and if you're in the middle while you just tip your hat in the middle so you give away your political affiliation annual courteous and the best thing in the whole thing Bonnie is that you it by the by implementing this wonderful idea we can bring back hats because now we some people wear baseball hats but I like back in the old days when you know the young men and women would wear very nice hats so I like the idea specially since nobody kids going out to get America and say you want to cover your head so that's a great way to live how did you hear

there is there's tables and places to go around the old Jack so people are so far respecting the distance and then there's a public restroom open down there which you know it's a big deal down here in

twice right right I mean you know it again the all the billing which will really help you know I'm glad you guys definitely happened the way that everyone is entitled to their opinion well we have respect that because there's a good possibility that most of us will find out that we're exposed to this yeah we both of the new lady and on your station Saturday I listen to commander Carol she had a Brainiac on from Stanford Dr any really laid it out and it really was so informative and I really think people willing to get involved but the fax the danger of getting stuff second and third hand right I mean come on we are all what we always stop wash your hands you know right right right this new norm hello I think it's gonna come down to one point and I've been saying this week the get go I don't think people realize how close it comes from it doesn't magically appear on the shelves if we don't have going back to work we are going to run out of food what are we going to pull the trigger we'll wait for everyone to turn turn the crops in all over because I can't get labor right I mean the thought of of of of not having food in a country like like this is it's it's impossible to even imagine that for one second you know it's it's a mad it's it's you can't even fathom that that would ever happen in this country and I believe with all my heart you know that I listen I I maybe I'm old school may and then perhaps I'm naive but you know Patrick my optimism is going to be there it's going to continue all your concerns are so valid and I think about you know if you time of getting help out there Patrick I gotta run but the fact is so those are all very valid concerns obviously I don't know I can't I can't imagine running out of food in this country though I'm I think we'll be back shaking hands personally it's what we've done forever it's the natural thing to do it seems like I think we'll be back out eating I think at some point we'll be looking for you made a comment in any you know I had this point to make it it's just and then I lost it I just wanted so badly three spot one of those things he said but it it escapes me but anyhow I believe that will continue to shake and that's what I think and we're gonna look back at this this is gonna be one of those moments right were we all say gosh remember that he is like the JFK assassination it's is one of those memorable times we're gonna look back and you're going to see videos and everyone was from home and we're all gonna remember boy we weren't going to shake hands anymore and no one was going to go out to eat and but I can't imagine running out of food it's almost impossible for me to fathom mania in Yuba city is joining us hello Hey how you doing all all conduct this quick okay well my my comment is about one job being the central and another job not being listened to you know I got a neighbor down the street his job is gone it's just gone all right it wasn't gone but it is now you can but his kids clothes but I got another neighbor down the street the a state worker in a union in his job as a janitor in DMD central so he's still working my neighbor any you know a woman to go get an abortion I can't go to the dentist so I just wanna know you know who's picking and choosing because it seems like the government is picking who's going to win picking who's going to lose and I'm a I'm also just going to say this don't surrender your firearms man don't do it I think that that would be a big mistake and that's basically where I'm at thank you Pat thank you Ryan ray Bryan the wizard

"Piece about this guy who wrote a play for the granite bay high school theater, and what makes this place so amazing is that we all know about the, the, the cheating, the admissions scandal with college, right? He wrote in his story line that exact storyline a year before that story broke he wrote that into his play and they've now made the play and we did interview with him. And if you wanna see it, by the way, you can get tickets and go to the crest theatre tomorrow night at seven o'clock. This storyline was just too outlandish. You would never happen. We also talked about this changes for apple and some of their announcements this week boy, really took some people by surprise some of the high costs of some of their. Product, a thousand dollars for an a stand for a monitor. Yeah. That was highly priced twelve thousand dollars for another piece of equipment MAC. Yeah. The new one I tunes going away. So big changes at apple. We did cover that in the seven o'clock hour. Also in the six o'clock hour, eight o'clock hour, Arlene, you did a really good segment and talk to the folks at P genie, as we go into the summer they have told us if it gets hot and windy, which it likely will they may shut down the power. But the question is, what's the criteria right? When do they do it, and it doesn't look like this go round, even though it will be warm and windy as we get into tomorrow. This isn't the time that power is going to be shut off, but it's something we're going to keep going back to PG and E and asking each time we see these north winds. But I would suspect, correct me if I'm wrong, this is something, we'll deal with all summer long off and on this is pretty typical stuff as we know, in Sacramento in the eight o'clock hour are featured audio clip was with someone who was analyzing Google, Google is now the focus among other high tech companies of antitrust investigations going on in Washington, DC, whether or not their monopoly, and there are some documents that were released to the Wall Street Journal that could be very troubling for Google going forward, that may show indeed. They they. They are monopolistic. So we'll see. But that was our featured audio clip at eight o'clock. So, again, thanks a lot for being here. We do appreciate, hey, thank you so much. Christina will be back on Monday. And it's great to be here on this Friday. Very good. So we'll be back at five o'clock on Monday morning. And we're glad that you joined us.

People say are imitates life today. We have a case of life imitating, art. It starts with something that's well a little bit out of the ordinary. This is not out of the ordinary a musical at a high school. That's ordinary. The story about to here is not Kyle homes is the director of theater arts at granite bay high school. So he wrote a story for ranked a new musical ranked is about high school set in the not too distant future, where your class ring determines, everything about your social standing and your status and your trajectory in life. So kind of like now but dialed up to a hundred. Okay. You know what ranked is about? Right. So it seemed to him like a normal satire of the hardcore college admissions culture that plagues many high school, so tough to get in and stresses. Everyone out until the college admissions cheating scandal happened. We have this story line in our play about this, this kid whose parents were paying for his grades without him knowing, and we were doing early read through mid late twenty teen where in some of the feedback we got from people was very much. Well, seems a little in realistic seems a little unbelievable. We're not really sure how we feel about this, and we felt really adamant about. And we said, no, we're, we're pretty sure that this is we're gonna leave this in. So in the news broke, you know, we weren't really too shocked so year before the cheating scandal. He's writing this, and people are saying this can't happen. So the show is now coming back for an encore concert performance. It's tomorrow night at crest theatre at seven o'clock if you want to go see it. And of course, the music, reflects the high pressure environment to get into college. So that's just a little bit of the music you a taste Eileen about. It's all about. I have a friend. He's going through this right now. She's getting into college toying around. It's a lot of stress in the family. They wrote the music and lyrics for rank David Taylor gums, and he described his reaction when he found out about the admission news, it was just so validating to know that we picked a topic that was an unusual topic to write a musical about, but it seems to be so timely on almost just like fate. It was crazy. Home says a teacher he sees -tudents have to give up things like extracurriculars favor of trying to get into college way too often for me. It's, it's something that I see every day. And I watched my students, go through it every day. And I think I think we've a lot of work to do. I think I think it's a very big ship, that's gonna take a really long time to turn around. But I think that we've over inflated the importance of college, and as a result, everything else, that's important to kids and fun to kids and gives them joy is being marginalized. And that's how we've ended up where we're at about. That one. Prophecy good for him crest theatre. That's at seven o'clock tomorrow night, if you wanna go see it. So might be worthwhile.

"Sponsored by Audi. Rocklin. This morning. Researchers with the Monterey Bay Aquarium say there is more micro plastic pollution deep in the Monterey Bay than the great Pacific garbage patch. Micro-plastics by the way are tiny pieces of plastic that measure less than five millimeters in size. Well oftentimes, Sam, you hear people say art imitates life. But today, we have a case of life, imitating art for you. It all starts out with something not to out of the ordinary a musical at a local high school. Right. Kyle homes is the director of theater arts at granite bay high school and wrote the story for ranked a new musical. Ranked is about a high school set in the not too distant future, where your class ring determines, everything about your social standing and your status and your trajectory in life. So kind of like now but dialed up to one hundred. Okay. So that's the basis for the, the play that he wrote. Now, keep in mind, he writes this before, like long before the college admission scandal even breaks. And it seemed to him like a normal satire of hardcore college admissions culture that plagues many high schools, many high school students, and even their parents. Then, of course, the college admissions cheating scandal happened. We had the story line in our play about this kid whose parents were paying for his grades without him knowing, and we were doing early read throughs in mid late twenty eighteen where in some of the feedback we got from people was very much. Well, it seems a little unrealistic. It seems a little unbelievable. We're not really sure how we feel about this, and we just felt really adamant about, and we said, no, we're, we're pretty sure that this is where we're gonna leave this in. So in the news broke, you know, we weren't really too shocked FEMA, little unrealistic, until it happens. Unrealistic all? So, of course, the music, reflects the high high pressure environment to try and get into college. I keep my. David Taylor Gomes's wrote the music and lyrics for ranked and he described his reaction when he found out about the news of the admission scandal. It was just so validating to know that we picked a topic that was an unusual topic to write a musical about, but it seems to be so timely on almost just like fate. It was crazy. So especially at a time when people were doubting, that this whole story line could even take place. I'm sure it was validating for him. I'm says as a teacher, he sees students have to give up on things like extracurriculars in favor of trying to get into college way too often for me, it's, it's something that I see every day. And I, I watched my students, go through it every day. And I think I think we have a lot of work to do. I think I think it's a very big ship, that's gonna take a really long time to turn around. But I think that we've over inflated the importance of college, and as a result, everything else, that's important to kids and fun to kids and gives them joy as being marginalized. And that's how we've ended up where we're at a man of his time at granite bay high school about that. The play is being done good for them.

But now there's a proposal to force some of those places to allow marijuana sales. Whether local government leaders a wanted or not Casey that'll be used L Cessna feels in the idea is to expand to access to marijuana bringing legal sales to what some call cannabis desert's where retail sales are still barred Elliott assemblyman Reginald Jones Sawyer in San Francisco lawmaker Phil teeing introduced a measure that would require local jurisdictions to issue retail cannabis licenses in places where more than fifty percent voters supported proposition sixty four that was the two thousand sixteen ballot measure that ushered in legalization Joan Sawyer and ting say the purpose of prop sixty four was to eliminate the black market for wheat, which can't happen. If much of the state.

"PK, shifting gears. Cher. Kevin Kiley is actually my assembly member. Thank you for your service to our district. Mr. assemblyman agreed to have you here. Welcome to conversation to be here as always, and you got some things you've been working out. How long have you been there now in the legislature while it's been a couple of years? I'm still pretty new to politics could say just a little over two years. Starting your third year recently. That's right. It was just yes, starting my second term in the assembly in, and I know quite a lot about you. But just for the sake and lightning the audience. What what else have you done in your life since school? You've you've had a couple of opportunities to do unique things you've been a prosecutor for the attorney general's office. That's what I did right before. I was elected a prosecutor deputy attorney general for the state working on cases involving a violent felons. When I started out my career, actually, though, I was a high school teacher in south central LA teach in tenth grade English. So your different I guess we'll say disciplines, I don't think you can call any of those a career with relatively little time in them. But obviously some diversity in terms of activity. I each of which represents a calling obviously. What what have you enjoyed the most? What has given you the most in terms of personal fulfillment? And satisfaction. Well, I'd say teaching, you know, it's hard to beat that. To make a difference on a day-to-day basis, especially since I was teaching underserved school or the average reading level for my tenth graders was fifth grade. But I will say, you know, the reason I decided to run for the legislature is I was very concerned about the direction of our state and the experience that I'd had it actually given me a unique window into all the ways a lot of the ways in which our state was failing. I saw when I was teaching our public education system is simply failing way too many kids across the state. I was very fortunate to go to great public schools in this area. I grew up here. And I went to pasta county schools across the state. That's unfortunately, not the case for a lot of are rumor that you were the valedictorian granite bay high. Good for you. So, but, but as you look, okay, you raise a good point. You mentioned failing our students you're not referring to the littoral academic failing. When when a child doesn't make the grade. But rather we're failing to serve them properly AS Roma's is what you referred to. And as a consequence a lot of them are not getting the education that they need which is why California ranks near the bottom. When it comes to education performance across the country used to have about the best public schools in the country. It's just it's amazing to me. I it's shocking to me that this state that has such an abundance of resources the biggest state in the union, the the UC, and you systems that are that are I think our models to envy, especially in terms of their history. How can we possibly be in a situation, which are public education is failing so badly? I it just it's well you've seen it from the classroom and now from the assembly what what's are there. Easy fixes to that. How could it be repaired? That's right. I've seen it from both ends. And I'm the vice chair of the education committee now, and I can tell you that the policy that we've had in Sacramento, let's micromanage our schools from Sacramento, let's undermine the the decision making of local communities. Let's not allow for any flexibility or choices for parents and families, and what's not have any accountability or transparency that has been a recipe for failure in our public education system in California and weaned bad. We need reform in the state. Do you see yourself in the classroom again at some point at the at the front of the classroom. Since taught in a number of ways, I taught when I was in law school undergrads. I was I jumped at George for a while. So I might follow in your footsteps John once again get back to the classroom. It's rewarding. And if you've got that calling frankly, I think it's it's great. I appreciate the fact that you have done that especially since we all know, it's not a way to get wealthy, but represents a calling so now in the legislature. What what have you had a chance to do in terms of things that give personal satisfaction in your capacity as legislator? Well, I've been very happy with what we're able to get done in my couple years that I've been there, you know, despite what is the political environment. That's extremely disfavor. I mean, you know, when I entered the legislature. There was already a supermajority for the Democrats, and what ensued was a sanctuary state and the gas tax and cap and trade and tons of bills disrespect on forcement trample on second amendment rights. Now, the numbers are even worse, the legislatures even more lopsided, and we have Gavin Newsom who's in the governor's office. So I think it's more important than ever that we have representatives are willing to stand up and fight and frankly to try to revive the prospects of the Republican party. But I will say that even in that environment. We were able to have a lot of success passing bills to advance public safety to advance educational opportunity to expand economic opportunity to protect freedom of speech on college campuses, a very important concept. And now, I see Susan Skinner has a Bill that has that replicates action taken in a number of local school boards that will that prohibits the suspension or expulsion of a student who engages in willful defiance of a teacher. Now, obviously the stated goal is to keep those students in the classroom continue to learn. But what impact I'll ask you this from your capacity as a as a classroom teacher? What impact does that have on the other students in that classroom? When a when a student can literally reach lash out at a at a teacher and up to and including f bombing them and not be held accountable, not be removed from the classroom that not cause an inevitable type of behavior on the part of the other students that's detrimental to the quality of education or the hopes of education, absolutely. Definitely in the way of the education and other kids in the class. And that's a perfect example of we've seen a lot of bills that are on that theme that take a decision making away from our teachers and our school leaders and instead of micromanage from Sacramento, which I think is the wrong way to go. We we have talked before about the text tax. That's rallies. Tell us about your efforts there. Well, as listeners to your program probably know a couple of months ago, you had the state bureaucracy proposed. This idea that we need to start taxing your texts. And by the way, it would have applied retroactively to tax your tax from the last five years, and it was. Floated and then withdrawn now the advocates wanna bring it back. So I have introduced a Bill that would prohibit any sort of text tax, which is a bit of a tongue twister in the state of California. I mean, if anything has remained tax free if nothing else at least, you're texture remained tax free. And I'm happy to report that we have every single Republican Senator on board as a co author as well as all, but a few of the Republican assembly members, I think this is exactly the sort of issue or we need to take a stand as a party, and let people across California now that we as Republicans are not a relevant or actually fighting to address these issues like taxes and the cost of living and all the other problems, we have in California. Considering our society the history in which the. The right to self expression is so revered that's the contemporary version of expression. That's how you communicate with one another. That's that's how we make in many cases are most frequent utterances or through the miracle of electronics and text messages the tax that a fundamental, right? Yeah. It's very well. Put and I think I read that it's like know one point seven trillion text or something or sent in the United States if they were it was retroactive by go bankrupt. I also wanna talk about another issue that that I read about it. We haven't had a chance to chat about it. But you have we have to take care of some other businesses quickly. But when we come back, I want you to tell me about this. This most recent Bill that you've introduced I think is the most recent having to do with a requirement for newly elected officeholders and some some some effort to undertake to actually show a knowledge of constitutional law and respect for the constitution that they'd taken a an oath to uphold and defend Kevin Kelly is with us. We'll be back with more conversation right after this. Don't go away. Information.
