"In support of this one. It's largely been Democrats in the state Legislature that back this measure. Initially, they're the ones who placed it on the ballot with a two thirds vote, and they've argued really that civic participation is a key part of re integrating parolees into society. I talked with Democratic Assemblyman Kevin McCarty of Sacramento, he wrote Proposition 17 Parole by definition, isn't it? Punishment Parole When it was created, you look up. The legal definition of it is to help re integrate formerly incarcerated back to society. That means find housing on healthcare. Find a job, you know, be a member of your community, which means voting. And what about the opposition on this one? Well, the opposition has really led by Republicans in the state Legislature, most of whom voted against even putting this on the ballot. They've argued that parole is really part of the punishment and parolee shouldn't have the right to vote until they've completed that term. They say that California's made a lot of shifts in recent years to move nonviolent offenders to county jails and people on probation, who currently have the right to vote. So opponents of prop 17 say the people still without the right to vote or what they called the worst of the worst. That's kind of the argument. The Republican Senator Jim Neilson, made take a look at the universe for dealing with in this particular case. We're dealing with murderous And rapist, not low level offenders, but most serious Offenders that we have incarcerated. So it's an issue not of them being able to get able to vote again. They will be able to, but they have to complete their sentence and the completion of the sentence requires a completion of their parole period. So this is really a question of how you view the role of parole..

"To change your ticket to cancel their tickets. You know the airline industry's you know, starting to realize that they're going to need to do more to convince folks to travel there. They're going to need to, you know, be more flexible. Instead of, you know, perhaps maybe driving or just staying home all together. I was startled this morning to read how much revenue the airlines have been earning from change fees last year American alone more than $800 million. It's huge. On the other hand, it's much less than they lost last quarter. Are they hoping that by giving up that change fee revenue, they'll spur enough additional flying to make up for that lost revenue. It certainly appears that way, air travel is completely down. We are starting to see according to the numbers that more folks are starting to take the skies We saw. You say numbers hit over 800,000 last month. It seems like the pandemic is kind of the straw that broke the camel's back in terms of getting rid of these seeds. I mean, it's certainly not just benevolence. It sounds like also financial desperation. Correct. You mentioned by the way 800,000 CE account last month. What would that compared to for say, a year ago, so 800,000 is still pretty small amount of people. 800,000 is still very low This time Last year, she's given kind of the same weekday over 2.2 million travelers took to the skies. And so that is a market Lee wide gap in terms of you know, folks who are travelling, although if a lot of what's keeping people out of airplanes, this fear do you think the elimination of fees and the flexibility that allows is enough for people to overcome their fear? It could. You know, there are some airlines who have implemented social distancing policies such as blocking middle seats that we saw Delta in Alaska. This could be a really simple way to convince those folks who are on the bubble saying, you know, I'm really not sure if I really want to do this. Do you know whether these are temporary measures toe ler back customers in the short term and will the fees come back once the airlines are more financially stable. United said that the change was permanent in the video. He used the word forever in the announcement. It appears that you know, a lot of these changes are going to be permanent, You know, forever is a very heavy word. And it really appears that you know, the days of change uses $200 fees that nobody has ever liked. It really seems like those days were beyond us. That's Victoria Walker, a reporter for the Travel website. The Point sky dotcom. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me before she was a senator before she was the first woman of color on a major party ticket. Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris. It was San Francisco's district attorney and later California's attorney general for member station KQED in San Francisco, Scott Shaffer and Marissa Lagos. Have this look at Harris is evolution as a prosecutor. 10. Years ago, Camilla Harris won the narrowest of victories to become California's first female and first black attorney general. It was a tough race. A Susie Loftis, a long time deputy of Harris is Law enforcement unions had overwhelmingly backed Harris his opponent, Ella's Republican Day. Steve Cooley. Steve Cooley spent a lot of money trying to suggest that Kamala Harris hated law enforcement. To build those relationships with local Dia's sheriffs and police. Leftist points out that the first thing Harris did when she became attorney general was to visit all 58 California counties. And it was incredibly effective because I think There's nothing like actually getting to talk to someone, especially who's been so vilified. Four years later, when Harris ran for reelection, police groups largely supported her. But she soon found herself at odds with another key constituency. Progressive Democrats. Deadly police shootings were in the news and Democrats in the California state legislature were pushing a bill to require independent investigations of deadly use of force. In 2015. Sacramento Assemblyman Kevin McCarty authored a bill to require the attorney general to take away investigations of police shootings from local D ays who he says have an inherent conflict of interest. You know, it's like, you know, high school baseball game looking out there and seeing the umpire is The uncle of all the star players. Are you going to trust that empire to call balls and strikes fairly? The answer's No. Here's to oppose the bill and it died. She also declined to support another bill requiring police officers to wear body cameras. That didn't sit well with the Black caucus in the Legislature. They saw her as on the wrong side of the fight. Such is the pressure faced by an attorney general, especially one who is a black female, says Le Doris Cordell. She was an independent police auditor in San Jose. There's a fine line. You're the top cop, but you're also a prosecutor, which is representing the people and often times those two things are not compatible, and says Cordell. Investigations of police shootings are, in some ways a no win situation. The feeling is that people are passing around this hot potato. When these shootings happen, they're very controversial. The public is very aware their protests and it's sort of like, you know, people just don't really want to. Handle. Camilla Harris says her opposition to the bill wasn't based on fear of catching a hot potato, but rather concern about interfering with local prosecutors. Here's knew firsthand how that felt in 2000 for some San Francisco officials pushed the then state attorney general to take a murder case away from her office after she declined to seek the death penalty. Loftis Here's his longtime deputy says that experience cut deeply, but I think she fundamentally always believed it's the local prosecutor's job to do the right thing and not to punt. Now that she's in the Senate and on the.
