New COVID-19 variant in L.A. County: What do we know?
"In los angeles. Health officials have begun testing patients for a new more contagious strain of the corona virus. I discovered in europe. They're trying to figure out why we're seeing a surgeon cases here one person dies from the virus every ten minutes in la county and hospitals are rationing care urging people to avoid going to the er unless they absolutely have to for the latest. We're joined by. Dr n remind professor of epidemiology at ucla. Welcome dr hi nice to be here yes so. La county as i mentioned testing whether the variant of the virus like the one in london south africa and korea could be spreading here. What do we know about these efforts in this new strain. Well this is very important Los angeles county. The laboratory is active or laboratories are actively sequencing strains and it's not only important to be looking for this Uk strain and the south african Strain variant should. I say but others as well. We're we're far behind here in the. Us and sequencing efforts and viral surveillance is a critical component of public health surveillance. And this is a very very important moment to be doing it. We're seeing a huge spread here in los angeles. There are a variety of reasons that this could be happening but it is critical to be doing this kind of viral surveillance. Well let's talk a little bit about the variety of reasons why this could be happening. If a new strain is spreading locally. How did it get here. And what what. Additional action should be taken to limit the spread. Well if the strain is if if this if these particular strains the uk the again the variance the uk variant or the south african variant are actually spreading here in los angeles which would make good sense Then they probably arrived through travel somebody. They're coming from europe or Somebody coming going and coming back from europe but but the thing is it isn't just about the uk it's not just about south africa. We are seeing many many european countries outside the uk of recorded cases denmark france germany italy the netherlands spain sweden. It's been detected even in toronto in a couple with no history of travel exposure or high risk contacts. So these this particular. Uk very int- is spreading. And because we here in the united states have been sequencing less than one percent of the of the cases that we that we have here as opposed to seven percents or more in the uk fifty percent in new zealand and australia. We're very very far behind. So the bottom line is it's very likely that either these particular variants or other variants. That are similar are spreading in our community and we just have not been looking for them and thank you for that distinction between strain and variant. We're talking about variants gear variants. Yes we we understand things like holiday gatherings and possibly this new variant of the virus could be accelerating the spread but what else could be the reason. The surge seem to happen so quickly here in los angeles here in los angeles. We have one of the most. We have the most populous county Here in the us and and so you have a lot of opportunity for spread. We know that people are fatigued and that they have been getting together. A lot of people got together for thanksgiving. And so we're seeing the effects of those thanksgiving get togethers now and i think that here in la county. We have a lot of multi generational households as well a lot of essential workers. So there's plenty of opportunity for spread and once this virus gains momentum. It's like a snowball rolling downhill. It's just gains momentum it gets bigger and faster and harder to stop so some of the force of infection perforce of infection. There's also this new data out in la county that shows that some grocery stores are hot spots for the virus. And that's alarming because going to the stores a trip that most people take because the risks seem low. What is your advice on how to stay safe. And what is now some of the darkest days of this pandemic. i think the key here is everything that you're doing today here in los angeles is more dangerous than it was a month ago. Every type of activity. I've seen estimates of anywhere between one and one hundred and one and fifty people in los angeles are infected. And so even if you're just going to the grocery store for example going to the bank or doing anything where you're going to be in contact with people outside your household. There's a higher chance today than there was a few weeks ago that you'll be exposed to covid nineteen so i think the key here is just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. There are a lot of things that are still permitted here but they may not be the right thing to do because they will carry risks for you and the people around you so my advice to people is stay home if you can. If you must go out make your plans ahead of time be very targeted. Go to the grocery store have a list and break it down by the sections of the grocery store. He know where you're going. Make it quick in and out. That's dr anne remind professor of epidemiology at ucla. Thank you so much. It's my pleasure.

"Would face reaction and in east. La the bandidos still called the shots. It's important to note that for much of this episode we've been focusing on the east. La bandidos and their relationship to other deputies and their station to be fully transparent. This is because most of the information we have on the bandidos is about the kennedy hall fight and the two thousand nine hundred thousand civil case filed against them. But that's not just say the east. La bandidos don't target members of their community. The same way they do their coworkers. There are two reasons why we might not hear about it. I people might not report. Deputy gang encounters out of fear. Second citizens who experienced police. Brutality may not know their aggressor was abandoned ito however to ongoing cases highlight what we do know about the bandidos activities outside the station. These incidents prove that the internal issue of the bandidos is very much felt by the wider east la community on august twelfth. Two thousand eighteen twenty one year old. Anthony barcus walked home from a party and enter the courtyard at the naval tomorrow via housing complex in east la unbeknownst to him east. La sheriff's deputies had reported to the complex at the same time to investigate a robbery deputies nicholas perez and jonathan row haas claimed they approached vargas and a fight broke out. They said that the young man produced a gun and that they had to shoot him to protect themselves. A lawsuit filed by the vargas. Family alleged. that both deputies perez and rojo belong to the bandidos tarez was a prospect at the time but he became a full fledged game after shooting. Vargas the vargas suit. Also claimed that the two deputies planted gun on the young man to give them just 'cause for executing him according to vargas autopsy. He was shot thirteen times in the back. The following year on december sixteenth two thousand and nineteen perez was involved in another shooting. This time the sheriff department officials story was that approach. Twenty old jorges serano junior while he was walking down the street. The elliott st claim. That sorrento pulled a gun. That peres shot him in self defense. But according to serano father who filed his own lawsuit against the department serano was unarmed. He ran for a block. Then god on his knees with his hands up still peres shot him and serano died at the scene. These claims are disturbing as you may recall from earlier in the episode ben. Dita's were encouraged to plant evidence on suspects so it makes sense peres. Mike try to drop a firearm near serano. And it's sickening to think that shooting. Anthony vargas was treated as some sort of initiation. But the bandidos wouldn't be the first deputy gang to celebrate officer involved shootings the lynnwood. Vikings received special tattoos celebrating such incidents and the jump up boys wrote into their code. Let members would gain. Respect after a gunfight both vargas and sarah now were latino but their cases and they're extrajudicial killings may sound familiar to anyone. Following the national movement against police brutality for the past decade especially high profile extrajudicial killings of black people have been marked by calls for action reform and accountability organizations like black lives matter acted as a mouthpiece demanding justice for those killed over the past year. National outrage has reached a tipping point protests and rallies have dominated new cycles videos of these officer involved executions have incited outrage and riots and despite this past decades efforts to reform law enforcement measures like additional training and body cameras. Haven't done much to curb police brutality. Since two thousand fifteen the washington post has tracked every fatal shooting by on duty law enforcement officer in the united states. Even with new measures the rate held steady. Police officers killed just shy of one thousand people each year. A new wave of activism has called to de-fund the police. This means divesting much of the money that would normally go to police budgets and reallocating it to community based social services for instance instead of sending police to mediate a nonviolent domestic disturbance. Emergency response teams might send mental health professionals specifically trained to de escalate. Those kinds of situations. The hope is that by reducing the number of police on the street. Police brutality and wrongful arrests would also decrease others wish to abolish law enforcement. As it currently exists the goal would be to shift to a new model public safety where the underlying causes of crime like poverty. Mental illness and addiction are addressed through community based social welfare programs. This debate on which path to choose but one thing is clear the current system that protects violent and racist cops must go and there are signs that public pressure is beginning to work though it often feels like two steps forward one step back august twenty twenty sheriff via no asia announced that he would be disciplining and possibly terminating twenty six employees involved in the kennedy hall fight but in the same breath via new wave. Minimize the impact of deputy gangs stating that. He wouldn't investigate them. He likened it to an inquisition. Saying we're trying to run an organization not engage in a witch hunt according to a follow up l. a. times article from october fifth. Only three of the twenty six employees were going to be terminated and according to their attorney some of the officers receiving discipline were actually victims in the fight. They were punished for not reporting the incident to their superiors. Acclaim that is simply untrue. However the two thousand and nineteen civil suit has spurred more change within the department then any complaints filed by civilians while families that filed wrongful death suits may have received settlements. Almost none of them stirred disciplinary action. This new move likely comes down to optics. It's bad look for the lsd to be sued over police brutality by their own employees. The move to terminate some of the offending deputies. After two years of the lsd dragging. Their feet is certainly due to public pressure. The vocal black lives matter movement and anti police. Brutality protests have created a new paradigm. In how we talk about and how he tried to change law enforcement on september seventeenth twenty twenty.

It may even take a change to the california state constitution if the impeachment goes forward the office of sheriff will become an appointed position allowing for more accountability.

LA County Coronavirus Cases Rise Despite Strict Measures
"Like county health officials are reporting more than 14,000 new coronavirus cases and more than 100 deaths and hospitalizations continue to hit new daily highs. This comes as state health officials say the ICU capacity in the 11 counties that loves together a Southern California is at 0%. That means healthcare workers will probably have to start placing ICU patients in other parts of hospitals. But without the specialized training of ICU, nurses and doctors, the quality of care may drop and deaths could increase. There's a call for L. A county to impose a strict and total lockdown for the month of January, closing all non essential businesses and imposing a curfew. But cabbie health officer Dr Montu Davis says there are drawbacks to that. You could say OK, well, that's set everything down and You know, trying to keep everybody inside temporarily, You know for a period of time, but I can tell you that with those those protective measures aren't followed. Even after you get out of that that we end up in the same situation. Dr Davis as a better alternative is for everyone in the county to adhere to the mandates to wear a mask, not mix with people outside their household and stay home as much as possible.

He claimed there were no fingerprints. But there were traces of guardia. Does dna the guns existence made. It seem less likely that the executions were involved after all. The ghost gun was allegedly one of their main tactics with an actual weapon in evidence. It sounded like the deputies. Shot guajardo in self-defense. Thinking he was in a street gang and commander mark seemed to be hinting at that theory throughout the press. Conference mere minutes after speaking about gordo's death marks pivoted to talk about gang related shootings that had occurred on the same block. Several reporters asked if he was implying that the incidents were related but marks denied this. Here's an excerpt of what he said again. I don't have any information that links mr granato to any of these previous incidents this is background information. And it's also to share with you that we have parallel investigations and as we understand. There's a lot of public desire and media desire for information on this case. But we're just not have not been in a position to share information on this case because of this parallel investigation and all the search warrants being served at the thirteen locations. Now today we're in a position where we can give you. An update provide you that information. The next day sheriff and vienna waiver spoke at another press conference. He denied that gang operated in the compton station or anywhere else. He is a portion of his remarks. Department critics the overwhelming majority of deputies. Who socialize with each other.

Tattoos are very common and their presence is not evidence of any sinister purpose absence evidence of associated misconduct anecdotal claims of criminal conduct from trial and defense attorneys must be viewed in their proper context.

Groups of deputies allegedly behaving gangs. The few cases that have arisen over the last dig has centered on deputies engage in misconduct with their peers as victim. Not the community. This was true with custody deputies. Fight at the cannon in twenty ten the kennedy hall fight in two thousand eighteen and now the fight between deputies at compensation in twenty twenty. There's zero evidence of three or more deputies engage in criminal activity with a unifying symbol. Whose primary purpose is to commit crime against zero tolerance but the la times quickly refuted the of position on august twentieth. The newspaper made a major connection. The deputies who killed our dotto miguel via and chris hernandez were mentioned in gonzalez's testimony as prospective executioners members..

"Back to the story after years of operating in secret the lennox grim reapers were exposed in nineteen ninety nine that year articles from the los angeles times and the new york times spotlighted the reapers as a group of rogue deputies with tattoos then in two thousand sixteen a disciplinary case within the department further illuminated the secretive organisation. There were allegations that the reapers intimidated other deputies with threats of violence and dangerous work assignments and held unusual influence within the department. Despite those significant revelations perhaps the most headline grabbing part of the case was the price tag of the legal fees that case of former deputy karen men doane was costing the county upwards of fifteen hundred dollars per hour and it was the result of an unusual legal dilemma. The government was in essence suing itself. La county led by the board of supervisors and auditor controller filed a lawsuit against the la county sheriff's department and sheriff vienna ueva both the county and sheriff hired specialized private attorneys by one account. There were at least a dozen lawyers working on the case. Of course specialized legal counsel doesn't come cheap. According to a report by a local news station the board of supervisors legal team cost four hundred ninety five dollars per hour but that's a relative bargain compared with the lead attorney for sheriff via nueva who is reportedly being paid eleven hundred and twenty dollars per hour. Those fees add up quickly. According to vienna ueva the cases cost the county close to three million dollars so far. And there's no end in sight even more shocking. Perhaps is that via nevada and the board of supervisors aren't footing the bill. La tax payers are and attorney fees are only the tip of the when it comes to the gangs financial impact on la county and its residents. There are also millions of dollars of legal settlements stemming from the gangs like the grim reapers one of the earliest financial blow from les.

Atlantic station formed a secret organization called the grim reapers this day. The date of their founding is unknown a testament to the group's code of silence but it was during the heyday of the crack epidemic. That deputies were suddenly sporting grim. Reaper tattoos on their ankles. The few details we do know have been pieced together from eyewitness accounts as well as inferences drawn from other sheriff's department gangs some outside the group including former sheriff lee baca speculate that the reapers began simply as an informal gathering drinking and partying. Sheriff's deputies much like enforcement officers have a reputation for being heavy drinkers when the batch comes off many them blow off steam with copious amounts of alcohol. That relationship with booze has been the subject of significant psychological research. A study published in the american journal on addictions found that one in four police officers have unhealthy drinking habits experts point. The fact that police work is stressful. And at times deadly it also requires a high level of trust and camaraderie. Many police officers view nondrinkers as suspicious and unsociable. People so drinking has not only become a way for law enforcement officers to bond but to prove their solidarity and reinforce group dynamics the lennox grim reapers were no different one anonymous source within the reapers described it as no more than some of the fraternities at schools former la county. Sheriff lee baca claimed that many of them regretted joining when they sobered up. Especially whether wide sought the tattoo he also added. That deputies destroyed their lives with this nonsense of drinking and tattoos but sheriff box criticism likely galvanize the reapers even more. He was like a nagging father telling his kids not to party or get tattoos. It only made the gangs more appealing. They became forbidden fruit over time. The reapers likely evolved into more than just drinking and tattoos. There is some evidence that wants. Deputy gangs like the reapers were large enough. They were able to influence department. Assignments work schedules and even calls for backup. But even as the reapers grew within station for the first decade of their existence little was known about them on the outside they successfully remained off the public radar then in nineteen ninety nine. Something happened thrust into the spotlight. In march of nineteen ninety nine the los angeles times published a groundbreaking article about secret societies. In the la county sheriff's department was one of the first public glimpses into the world of deputy kings. The article exposed numerous groups like the east. La little devils and lynnwood. Vikings but the peace zeroed in on one gang in particular the lennox grim reapers. The la times had access to a confidential source inside the reapers who gave them the first behind the scenes. Look into the secret world. The deputy was not identified but he confirmed he was tattooed member of the reapers. While the deputy was open about the existence of the gang he was careful not to implicate them in illegal activity or discrimination. He explained that his tattoo only showed that he was respected by his peers he added. What am i going to get a tattoo of. Winnie the pooh. His glib response wasn't echoed by sheriff lee baca at the time baca responded having a grim reaper. Tattoo does not bring confidence in you as a deputy even thought sheriff baca disapproved of the reapers many believed he didn't go far enough in addressing the problem. Some speculated that baucus under sheriff. Paul tanaka who we profiled in last week's episode undermined meaningful reforms against deputy gangs. Tanaka was an inc member of the lynnwood. Vikings and had already been involved in an alleged department. Cover up of an officer involved shooting so it seemed to be into nakas best interests to ignore any criticism and let the l. a. times article fade into the background. But tanaka wasn't powerful enough to stop another newspaper. Expose in june nineteen ninety nine. The new york times published an investigation about law enforcement this time about racial profiling during the course of his research. The times reporter received unprecedented access to lennox station there. He encountered numerous grim reapers. The journalists noted that many of the deputies mostly white young men with military backgrounds had report tattoos on their ankles. It was more confirmation of the proliferation of the gang. But this time the gang wasn't the focus of the story. The reporter was hoping to learn about racial bias in law enforcement for that he was allowed to do a ride along with a young lennox. Deputy named geoffrey coats. Coates was a white deputy policing area. That was over ninety percent. Latino ex ante confirmed the journalists were suspicions about racial bias. Except deputy coats didn't call it racial profiling. He referred to it as pretext stops during a pretext stop. Deputy coats reportedly ignored white drivers and targeted black and latino drivers hoping to find drugs firearms or evidence of criminal behavior textbook. Racial profiling toward the end of the reporters ride with coats. He asks the deputy pointblank if he was a grim reaper. Coats replied that he had been forthright untruthful during their day together and he wasn't going to lie to him now. So coats declined to answer the question. It was a tactical answer to a direct question. Coats didn't confirm that he was a reaper. But he didn't deny it either coaches career and status in the department didn't seem to be impacted by the article in june two thousand and he was awarded the sheriff's department smith torius conduct medal for protecting a bystander and other deputies during a gunfight in the lenox area he later became a sheriff's department swat officer after the initial publicity around coats his ride along and the new york times much of the attention on the grim reapers dissipated. The public seemed less concerned about gangs.

"Deployed around. La even with the new swat team waiting in the wings. Deputies at remote stations like lennox felt increasingly under threat from the general population. They were isolated and outnumbered. The violence got worse in the nineteen eighties with the advent of crack cocaine in lenox. Latino gangs like the lennox thirteen battled black gangs the crips bloods over territory and drug-trafficking control. The bloodshed poured into the streets with gang war seemingly surrounding them on all sides. The atlantic station deputies felt more and more like an island of law enforcement in a sea of violence. They were up against increasingly sophisticated. Gangs toting automatic weapons so the officers reportedly decided to take matters into their own hands. They had heard stories of other sheriffs stations like east. La and lynnwood starting underground groups of deputies secret tattoos so the young minute lennox decided to form their own. League chose a simple that represented and unstoppable force one that lurked in the shadows and brought with it the inevitability of death but grim reaper.

That relationship with booze has been the subject of significant psychological research. A study published in the american journal on addictions found that one in four police officers have unhealthy drinking habits experts point to the fact that police work is stressful. And at times deadly it also requires a high level of trust and camaraderie. Many police officers view nondrinkers as suspicious unsociable people.
