And we've had some high profile suicides recently Kate Spade. Anthony bourdain v. And I wanted to bring Jennifer Jones Leon because you are the journalist. I am not and one of the angles here and the people at world suicide prevention day of put out this sort of factsheet, I guess, and it's kind of a bit of a Arabic's a finger wag at the media. But it's definitely a set of tips and tricks about how to report on suicide without making the problem worse. So that's why I want to get your reaction. So one thing is that. And they say that studies have found certain kinds of news coverage can increase the likelihood that certain vulnerable people will kill themselves. So they're actually saying you could report on something in a way that pushes somebody over the edge to actually doing it. They're not saying you could report on suicide in a way that would make somebody who's not thinking about killing themselves. Suddenly think about killing themselves, but someone who's kind of right on the line. Yeah. So one thing they say is when the story explicitly describes the method. That that can aggravate the situation for somebody. Totally agree. When you have a dramatic headline as opposed to a more neutral headline. The example, they give is this headline Kurt cobaine used. Shotgun to commit suicide. You got two things little sensationalist. But also telling you in the headline how he did it as opposed to the headline being Kurt cobaine dead at twenty seven. And so that's one thing is not you may not realize I'm not saying you. But sometimes the media may not realize that they are either giving people ideas for how to do it. And also that by sensationalizing, it some people internalize that as glamorizing it. I don't think the media is ever glamourising suicide. At all. But in the mind of someone who's already depressed and despondent and thinks their life has no meaning they can internalize it the other thing they say is that the media could do more when there is a high profile suicide they can do more to talk about prevention and where to get help. Now, I feel like I mean, I've heard the coverage here, and it seems like always you say here's the suicide prevention hotline or whatever, but they're saying that you should actually spent like instead of say talking to a family member of the person who killed themselves. Instead, you should bring on a psychologist. You should talk to them and get a quote from them about how to help someone who may be suicidal. What do you think about that? Do you like what level of responsibility? Do you think the media has been reporting on suicide in well, it's kind of a fine line because I think that it is our responsibility to report the facts? And if the facts are that someone committed suicide, then I don't think that that's irresponsible to save at that person committed suicide to romanticize the method in which they used that would be completely irresponsible. You know, they. Say the Robin Williams story, and I think a lot came out about how he committed suicide. And I think you touched on it. Once you say, he was found to you know, whatever way, and then you move on from it. I don't necessarily know that I think it's the media's responsibility every single time to bring on say, a mental health expert to discuss tips and tricks and stuff like that. Because then I feel like that opens. You know, it's sort of it's going to snowball into then isn't it our responsibility for every single story that comes out to if a man shoots his wife. Shouldn't we be talking to mental health experts about somebody going over the edge? Should they have a volatile marriage? I mean where where do you draw that line? Yeah. And that's obviously they're they're skewed heavily because suicide prevention, of course. All right. Thank you, sir. And we'll get news from you in a second.

And Ken show John kobylt Ken chiampou KFI AM six, forty, is, away they'll, be back tomorrow We have in the studio with us Los Angeles County. District attorney Jackie Lacey We have seen in person in a long time and today's quite a day because there's an Associated Press story that says that there's a number of district attorneys who have been negotiating with Jerry Brown's administration. Led by El Dorado county DA Vern, Pearson to try to revise that Bill it's known legislatively as AB eighteen ten and it, would allow Everybody accused of a crime To take a shot at getting. Mental health diversion two years and it would mean, that there is no. Trial there's no prison time there's No. Prosecution Charges would get dismissed after the. Two years the psychiatrists dude examined, the defendant and if he has any one of three hundred mental illnesses and the big book, of crazy They could use that to excuse the, crime potentially and, actually the way it's written as. Of, today would even affect murderers rapists and, every other horrible person imaginable it it was snuck. Into a budget trailer Bill some, weeks ago nobody saw this coming wasn't made public wasn't covered in the media at all and You can see what kind of chaos this would bring if it was fully implemented so let's talk to. LA county DA Jackie Lacey Jackie thank you for coming it's. Good to see you again thank you, for having it has been quite some, time But, this. Is a topic that. I think I have a certain. Voice this speak about it and I appreciate the opportunity As. Far as you know what, do, the revisions looked like I imagine negotiations, are still going on? Or they're still possible hospital you could revise the revisions so but the the best of your, knowledge what's the current status Well the current status right now, is eighteen ten is the law can in other words. Someone could walk into court right now and ask the court were diversion and the court under the law would send someone out for evaluation and then make a determination and I want to be very transparent. With your listeners I believe that, there are people who have a mental illness who were in county jail who should be diverted because they. Have a health issue and their charges are not, what you would call serious in? Their conduct charges are not serious but we haven't been able to. Reach a lot of them, because, we don't have places to send them, and also we don't There's a lot of cases LA county is the biggest the largest county and it has about five thousand people in. The prison in the jail who, have a serious mental illness but what eighteen ten did is it just went so far that it essentially. Shifted everybody into that Into that line And, by doing that it harms the good diversion efforts that are going on in various different offices that are. Led by prosecutors so what the amendment does is it puts very reasonable. Controls on, it it says let's not. Talk about murders let's talk about rapists child molesters People who. Are charged, with a series crowns where we know judges. Aren't going to divert them but but it but instead let's have, some let's have counties build the infrastructure through their board, of supervisors to divert. People into places where, we're all be safe and they will get treatment but also let's let's have some common sense about this. Let's make sure that they don't have access to firearms being diverted let's. Make sure, the victims who are harm. Get restitution and so isn't this If this Bill was to stay as is this. This is too much For local government to handle this this is way too much, it will I, predict clog up courts with a lot of, frivolous claims and that's why although I'm extremely supportive of mental health diversion I'm worried about this Bill because a couple of things one is that we'll spend a lot. Of time litigating mental illness on almost every criminal case that comes through but but but the second more and. More important thing about this Bill is there, are places that were there so. Small where the county is so small they don't. Even have a psychiatrist they don't even have the infrastructure to, do it and so I would create, quite a, bit of chaos that but the amendments into the administration's credits they really, really listen the amendments Really provide a way to safely to talking, about the revision the revision revision can, I ask, you something though right Please I don't trust anybody have a hell does this happen to. Begin with you've you've got an? Entire Democratic supermajority legislature it. Sneaks this in. When no one's looking and the governor's signs. It they all approved? Of, the original version at that moment they all think this. Is a great idea how, can that be, well you know, the the process itself is a separate argument whether this process. Was fair would have liked we would've liked but. They, voted for it. And, the day he signed it they? Thought this was a good way to go I that's that's terrifying well how can I argue with that but, when I, am saying is time is of the essence if. This amendment doesn't get? A number by Friday then we we're going to have to live with eighteen ten what does that, mean what that means? Is that people need to get? On the phone and call? Their legislature? And ask where is the amendment two AB? Eighteen ten to do what is the. Amendment do does it does it keep? Certain defendants from entering The program at all. I, don't, think anybody. Wants, to see murderers rapists and all? Other terribly violent people even get a crack at this well that's exactly what it does is it says if, you're charged, with murder voluntary manslaughter a registered sex crime then. You don't get a? Crack at this but it also allows counties too often and the even more restrictive and that's an, important option for counties? Because there are certain counties what? Does that mean county to? Opt in? Allows your board of supervisors to craft Craft a mental health diversion program that that works that can be. Supported in that protects public safety so gives the county's more control over this okay We just had an arsonist suspect it the Cleveland national forest right mental health history going back twenty five years sorry he clearly disturbed and he sets fire. Burns about ten or twelve cabins twenty thousand. Acres Right twenty thousand people were. Were. Evacuated he's obviously gonna make a mental health claim what what allows a judge to say No You you don't get the mental health. Diversion you must go to trial as he's. Got he's got a psychiatrist who's vouching, him and the psychiatrist is. Right the guy is. Nuts, well, well, John let's give judges a little bit of. Credit I, mean after the recall of the judge in Santa Clara, county what judges don't let that guy go. Free? Really what judge is going to divert is the judge gonna be overturned on appeal because the way the law is the arsonist has the right to diversion if he has a mental illness that is connected to his. Crime and clearly this guy does, well he has a right to ask for diversion that it's always the judges. Call so he's going to be the judge's call on this. One but but but let me let me say for because that's exactly what I'm talking about is those cases are not the kind of cases where we ought to be talking about diversion because that guy's. Dangerous He's probably dangerous in the future but there are a lot of other cases can excuse me John where Where the charges are not as serious. Not nearly as serious where we can safely divert people into treatment and we want to think about that we really should because what's? Happening, now is even the share what kind of. Charges, you think should be eligible for mental diversion program well let's let's, talk about arson for a second now the arsonists that you talked about did a lot of, damage endanger but oftentimes I'll, get a mental health case where it's, a family situation where someone is delusional they're in their, own house and they set a piece of clothing their own clothing on fire and, their and their apartment? And they have. No prior. Record that person maybe. We ought to be looking at is there something different we can do all right let's take a break we come back more here with Jackie Lacey, Los Angeles County DA about an.

Anything And this is the coup de gras here is is the Bill That says mental diversion for all Because they, stopped building prisons ten years ago they had. A Bill that authorized prison construction they, never funded, it then came, prisoner, rely realignment and they said well the judge has forced. Us, to thin out the population no the judge never said. You have, to send people home they said you can't keep. Them some densely packed in prison you build new ones You built. Temporary ones at least Then prop forty seven km that was a pack allies that eliminated the. Prosecution in practical terms of misdemeanors Fifty-seven let's felons out early Then you have, this this, law mental diversion. No prosecutions no. Prison time then they'll bail we just discuss discussed with Steve Bailey, is running for. Attorney. General no bail anymore Well that dismantles busted the judicial system doesn't it And they do it every year or two there's one more. Piece to the puzzle and. They have two methods they either lie about it they lie about the effects or they sneak it in with no, one's looking I mean the mental health diversion nonsense was snuck. In as part of a. Complicated lengthy budget trailer Bill there was no public debate announcement warning at all For things like prop forty seven and fifty seven it's simply a propaganda campaign aimed at voters who barely pay attention but they. Do show up once. A year, and vote and will vote based on what the last emotional argument was made to them is. About the last emotional argument here's how they vote A lot, of these people who vote have no knowledge of of what's really going on and they're easily misled by campaign commercials or Jerry Brown's lies this is the wholesale destruction. Of the Justice system About really six different ways No more prisons built Prisoners dumped out of the state prison system prisoners dumped out of? The local jail system no more prosecutions from. A lot of misdemeanors Much fewer drug prosecutions They wanna, get rid of bail For many many defendants and they wanna stop prosecutions entirely by. Sending almost everyone to mental diversion Mental health diversion so there you go That may be more than six and what do you have left if you're letting people at early if you're pushing people out into the, streets if you're not building new prisons if you're not letting if, you're not sitting new people to prison. If you're not even Keeping, him in jail until they can post bail to ensure that they, show up for trial Well there's no more Justice system what do you think's going to happen What do you think's gonna happen And, you seem like the burglary rate? Its just, gone, through the roof I had oh Is that the the next the next the next door site as very? Popular in, neighborhoods It's it's a website and you type in your name and And some other information and you get a private chat area we're, just the neighbors talk about, what's going, on in the neighborhood and a lot of it's you, know for neighborhood trivial stuff, like anybody got a good gardener anybody got a good pediatrician but then people get into fights over local. Issues and let me see if I can call this up Yeah here's a guy who lives near me and he's saying addio to the west side He wrote after twelve years of living happy here very excited to be moving on As the homeless set up, camp right in the heart of our village And the..
