In response to ongoing protests. Councilman Joe Buscaino said that this new department will require resource is does this new community safety partnership translate into more money for the LAPD? You know, it's a great question, and there was a moment in the press conference where Joe Buscaino said, You know, it's gonna be really hard to defund and expand the police at the same time, and I think in that in that sentence he sorted inadvertently identified what's going to be one of the key political issues, which is for people who believe in whether you want to call it. The funding or reducing the city. This is not that these are jobs that LAPD officers will fill at the same time. This program. The C S. P program is a very important program.

I'll take it. Thank you. Melina is a mom and a professor of Pan African studies at CAL state I came of age in the nineties and. Kind of the height of the crack cocaine epidemic. That's the height of the war on drugs, the harassment of especially young black people by police was an everyday regular occurrence. I remember like every time I went on a date. We get pulled over. The question was just. How far would they take harassment so I, didn't have to become conscious through like some political mechanism. It was our lives as black people of my generation that there was always tension between black folks in police. And if you were young black, growing up and California's or really anywhere during the early ninety s, you remember the moment in Nineteen ninety-one when grainy video footage captured four LAPD, officers speeding rodney king during a traffic stop. We understood almost viscerally. The police were moving on behalf of someone who wasn't. That home videotape is shown around the world and is this moment when it's like okay, the? Aren't going to get out of it this time. We've had this experience of daily harassment and abuse and a year later. Two officers were acquitted. Ugly terrible situation all night long fires looting, going nuts, random beating attacks, and now the national guards may be ready to move in our chopper clipped. Welsh has been over the violence all night. We're GONNA. Go to him. It's the moment of frustration that erupts because of the ways. The police had not changed the erupted in the biggest moment of unrest in American history in terms of a single city. Mexico KANTER is an historian at Ball State University. He says in order to understand how Los Angeles got this moment. We're in now. You've got to understand with. The city's been through. That's a history that goes way back before kings beating. Los Angeles like many cities experiences the great migration starting in the early twentieth century with then through World War Two where the black population grows exponentially, but the thing that's crucial is Los Angeles prior to that have largely been an Anglo dominated city of white migrants, and the police force was essentially a force that represented that White Anglo. Protestant community as the black population grows the police see that as bringing criminality bringing unrest bringing disorder, and so the police from almost moment one had long been antagonistic to the black community, and you have black migrants in the fifties and sixties, saying things like essentially the police here don't operate any differently. Differently, than how we were treated in the south, that's amazing, so black folks fleeing kind of wild explicit violence of the south arrive in see it institutionalized in a different way once they get up to the north of the West, there even stories of the ways that the LAPD recruited officers from the south to bring to La Right in the end. So it's even there's that kind of reproduction of that system there of white supremacy in racial control, even just through the recruiting mechanism so F- friction has sparked an explosion here and their walk us through just the the uprisings rebellions tension that kind of spilled over in Los Angeles. For this period I study really with the nineteen sixty five watts uprising, the police pullover, a black motorist been they handle him roughly thrown, trying to arrest him in the squad car, and a crowd comes out and says you know like you can't be treating him like this. There's this kind of claim brutality. The key is that that comes on a decade and a half of police, brutality and harassment of residents in the black community, and so it's that moment where it's frustration and anger at the treatment by the lapd of the black community, then erupts into six days of anti-police protests and unrest. Fortieth Armored Division employed nearly eight thousand officers and men to quell the riot. The riots were single. Most devastating disaster befall Los Angeles in its long history. After the Watts rebellion and nine hundred sixty five Kim, the police beating of Rodney King, and ninety one and subsequent riots after the officers acquitted one thousand nine to. Five years later. There was another scandal former LAPD officer Rafael Perez convicted of stealing cocaine became an informant revealing widespread misconduct in the anti-gang unit where he worked. The Rampart scandal this moment where the anti gang task, force crash or the community resources against street hoodlums crashed. Sounds think those acronyms. It's exposed that officers in that Rampart crash unit were engaged in things like stealing evidence and cocaine from evidence rooms to sell to frame suspects, their son that were accused of just outright murdering suspects or other black and Brown residents, and that gets exposed, and it again reveals that there's this systematic kind of racist corrupt practice within the department that it's not just bad apples here or there. So, there's been flash point after flashpoint, but along the way there have been attempts to perform. There's a few things that also come out of the Rodney King. Beating which is crucial is that there was actually city charter reform where they took away? The chief of police, his life tenure because prior to that, but police couldn't really be fired because he had civil service protection, so there is some relief at the lake. City charter structure level at the national level, the federal government passes legislation that enables the Department of Justice to investigate police departments for patterns and practice of civil rights abuses in two thousand one. That law was used to LAPD under federal oversight in an agreement between the Justice Department and the city known as a consent decree. They essentially say there is a subculture and pattern and practice of racism and racist policing with in the police department, and that this can't be solved by just one individual heather actually been gains and progress during those years there some evidence by some of the reports that come towards the end of these consent decrees in a case where they're saying. Yes, there are these changes that have been made whether it's in kind of arrest statistics crime, going down the sense of like polls, residents thinking that the lapd are more fair and. And treat people better right in the institute community policing, but there's a lot of evidence that shown that coming out of that the LAPD in the past five years after the consent decree was lifted twenty, thirteen continued to disproportionately stopped black and Brown residents in cars, disproportionate rates, the metropolitan the elite.

The fact that you did not foresee having more than five hundred people come to this meeting is a sort of breathtaking lapse in responsibility and sort of emblematic of the larger problem. In the wake of George Floyd's killing their voices are among the course of people all across the country who are saying we need reform.

Reducing the police department's budget and putting that money to work elsewhere. We. Need the fund the Police Department immediately. We don't need these people anymore. Killing our folks in the streets the day after that city council meeting on June six Los Angeles. Eric Garcetti got behind that idea. We're working together on the actions that will make sure that those voices and those calls don't land flat, but that result in the changes we all need. The mayor said that the LAPD budget which accounts for more than half of the city's entire budget would be cut by one hundred and fifty million dollars. He also said he would make one hundred million in cuts to other departments, and in both cases the money would be redistributed to communities of color. Two hundred and fifty million dollars in cuts, so we could invest jobs in health in education and in healing. And that those dollars need to be focused on our black community here in Los Angeles as well as communities of color and women and people who have been left behind for too long. The move comes after decades of tension between law enforcement and the city's black residents tension that's persisted despite years and years of incremental policing reforms. So could defunding be the thing. That finally makes a difference. and. This.

"Uh So I am in the studio right now as I told you all the podcast studio for the breakdown is actually just I in a corner. The northstar office is just a glass box in the northstar office. And I'm normally here in the studio while while our staff and team doing the work they do. I am here now with Nikki. Ross and she has been working on a story in some ways. It's a story of voter suppression in Wisconsin. Can you break this story down for me. Sure so my story kind of focuses on The Wisconsin Appeals Court which temporarily halted Over two hundred thousand voters from being purged from the voter Rolls So back in October. The Wisconsin Elections Commission notified more than thirty thousand people that they'd be removed from the voter registration rolls but the plan. Dan was to give them until two thousand twenty one to respond whether they had moved or not. And if they had they could reregister however in response though Wisconsin Institute suit for law and Liberty filed a complaint on behalf of three Wisconsin voters not affected by the voter purge and their suit claims that the election commission failed to obey Wisconsin. Law requires voters to be removed from the voter rolls. Thirty days after notice. So the with these voters you said. They weren't removed move. No they had nothing to do with the voter purge. They weren't on the list they were just As the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty told us they were just concerned that the elections committee commission was not following the law. Right they just sit around and they're just they're deeply concerned just about the law. I mean you're not talking about this. What we really know is at play is? Wisconsin is a swing state date and it has been swinging toward Republicans in previous elections. They've had a Republican governor up until recently and and you told me that Donald trump barely won the state. By how many votes did he went right by less than twenty three thousand votes so these voters are absolutely absolutely necessary for Democrats To still be on the voter rolls right to be viable. I mean it's not an also you and I are in Brooklyn Oakland New York right now. Wisconsin is not an enormous state. And when you strike two hundred thousand voters from the roles like that's a that's a purge purge right and of course these voters that are targeted are all in democratic areas of the state. So it's just a little iffy eighty. It's interesting that it never seems to be conservative. Voters that are getting perched. Yeah it's a primarily. Mary Lee Voters of color and voters in less Affluent areas that are being targeted by these voter. Purges so I saw all the headline and was frustrated. Bowed it but one of the things I struggled with is like. What do we do so here? We are what happens. Opens in Wisconsin in the presidential election affects all of us. But if you're not in Wisconsin or even if you are what do we do who about this other than just being frustrated. I mean I think one of the important things to do is to make sure you're registered to vote And that is fairly easy. You can go online There is a website where you can go And check whether you're you're registered and also what's super important to know when your registration deadlines are in Wisconsin. You can register the day of the elections but that's not the case in other states in say like Georgia where you have have to register to vote at least a month before the elections happen so check your registration for everybody. And when does is Wisconsin vote in the Democratic primary. They go to the primaries. In February. I believe eighteen effort worthy eighteenth and so this decision as much as it may have temporarily frightened people in Wisconsin. It seems that this decision should not impact voters in the Democratic primary. Absolutely not so.

"lapd" Discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King

"It's now twenty twenty and at means we are about six years in to the life and history of this movement that we call the black glass matter movement and one of the things that many of us have been fighting for has been the use the effective quality use. I must say say of body cameras across the country and police officers. We're we're asking police departments to use them in Dan ethical effective ways to record their interactions. But we've often seen failures where we've seen police officers. Turn their body cameras off off right before brutality or all of a sudden. Say That during a moment of brutality they forgot to put their cameras on and so six years into into this movement. We're still not at a place where they're being effectively used. But what we've seen is I think in an exaggerated a-rated pushback against them because they haven't been a magic pill they haven't been miraculous body cameras. Have Not in would not have ever ever stopped. Police brutality I wrote a series twenty five ways that we can effectively reduce police. Brutality is cut in half and what I found is that in those twenty five ways each of those twenty five ways might reduce it by one to two percent and what happens is if you just do one of those in isolation you hardly see a dent and what happens is if people say oh. I thought you said by cameras. We're going to fix police brutality or no that's is not what we ever said in the first place not only do body cameras have to be warned. The right policies have to be in place the right consequences have to be in place for for their misuse or abuse. Like there are a lot of issues that go go into play there. But we're seeing right now in Los Angeles and a great example of how their use is exploding scandal. A young mother in Los Angeles found that her teenage son had been designated as a gang member even though her son and had never been a part of a gang is not affiliated with people that are in gangs didn't live next to interact with people who are in gangs and she had gone out of her way. Are you to make sure that never happened. When she began pressing it and pressing it impressing it? Eventually she got the body camera footage of the officer who designated that her son was a part of a gang. And we're going to do a few episodes on these gang designations because because they're not just happening in Los Angeles. You can generally assume that what is happening in the NYPD and the LAPD is probably happening in your. Oh a police department because those two police departments often set the policies and the tone and the direction for hundreds if not thousands. The police departments all over the country. Literally get so many of their policy ideas from other larger departments so what we see in Los Angeles it literally is like something from the Jim Crow era where police officers walk around with literal cards arts little pieces of paper and during they call them field cards which is lamb not trying to be deep here or fake deep here here but when we often talk about how police departments are a police departments and mass incarceration how those things are an extension of slavery savory so wild thing that they call these things field cards and they call the interactions field interactions. Okay now people say Sean Crazy. They're just talking about when they're out and about in society. Why why you keep calling it the field? I'm just yes I'm just saying I'm not trying to be weird or spooky. But they call it a field card and when they're out in the field policing these are their words they have these little bitty pieces of paper and when they have what they call the. Lapd a field interaction. That is an interaction with anybody. Anybody in society. That's not inside of the police department. They fill out a little card and designate that person as has being a gang member or gang affiliated it gets signed off on by a supervisor and goes in their record. Here's here's what's crazy when they started when this mother pushed back and said No. No no no I I need to see the footage since you all feel out on the card got it signed off on by a supervisor. Show me the footage. And here's the thing over seven thousand officers in the LAPD HE D I wearing body cameras at all times over. Fourteen thousand hours of footage are recorded each and every day in this one mother who bravely boldly courageously stood up for her son and her son's future saying oh no no no. You're not going to put my son one on your gang list because my son is not in a gang exposed a scandal that currently has reached now to twenty different different officers. But they haven't even started the hard laborious work of inspecting tens of thousands hundreds of thousands maybe even millions of hours of footage. I don't know how you do it to to inspect every single. Stop with every single field card arden. Field Interaction where they've designated people as gang members and what they found what the L. A. Times what the investigators and others have found there in Los Angeles would activists and organizers have been pushing for what they found. Is that officers. All over the Department apartment are framing people men women and children as being in gangs. And then here's what happens. Once you get on back gang hang list they can bust you for anything and put on your record. What's called a gang enhancement? So all of a sudden you commit a basic crime it can be upgraded with what's called a gang enhancement because you're a gang member and how do we know your gang member because when the LAPD saw you in society filled out a field card and say it's so and it's disturbing and it's problematic because what we see now is that thousands and thousands of people have been given this designation that have nothing to do with gangs. In fact one one study found babies babies that were put on the list great grandmothers that were put on the list. And here's here's the bottom line. The list itself is problematic. Gang enhancements are problematic. Listen if you steal still a candy bar and you're actually in a gang you still just stole a candy bar giving somebody an extra designation and because they are in a gang or affiliated with a gang or live in a neighborhood that might have gangs in it is bogus. In fact study. Study after study has found. It's basically just a way to increase the sentences of black and Brown people. Because you know who's not getting gang enhancements white folk doc. Wealthy folk people have privilege. They're not getting gang enhancements ever and so it's just one more way to infest our communities with higher sentencing and mass incarceration. And it's disturbing. I've I've seen in talk to families who who said Sean. We live in a neighborhood that sometimes may have gang members on the block and my son was designated as a gang member just because he was stopped riding his bike in our own neighborhood or Shaun. I live next door to somebody who's been designated as a gang member now. My whole family has been designated as gang. Members is bogus it's BS. They need to end the entire system. People don't even need to be designated as being in gangs as some type of of of criminal enhancement like it's it's foolish and so this scandal handle inside of the lapd that currently reaches just twenty officers. I think if they actually reviewed the footage. And here's what I think has to happen. I think every every gang enhancement that's ever been made needs to be reviewed every single one of them. And what we know is that that would take tens of thousands of hours probably years to do you know what the most effective thing that they do do away with the gang enhancements system go ahead and review all of those see who lied see who find people they need to be criminally charged. They need to be immediately terminated but what we also see in Los Angeles is that they have a district attorney. Jackie Lacey who never prosecutes police. No matter how horrible the misconduct she continues to let up and let off of them. In every single instance and over again and has done so for years right now. Los Angeles is in the midst of a new election for a new district attorney and we are hoping hoping hoping that they can overthrow Jackie Lacey and get someone in office. Who will finally hold police accountable but this scandal is just beginning?.

In the hills of deadwood South Dakota he moved to Los Angeles as a teenager in nineteen twenty two and joined the lapd five years later after being on the ground during some of the departments worst years. He acknowledged the checkered past saying Zhang. Police history is not a pretty thing.

"In the mid nineteen forties the L. A. P. D. created a special special secretive unit to make life miserable for organized crime. The gangster squad had to targets of High Interest Mickey Cohen and Jack Dragnet Mickey was a Jewish ex pro boxer of Ukrainian descent who originally hailed from Brooklyn. He moved to Los Angeles as a child and grew up in Boyle Heights. A neighborhood just outside of downtown as a a teenager. He ran away from home. Moving to Cleveland then New York then Chicago Out East. He'd been introduced to racketeering and gambling with his boxing career. fizzling Mickey saw an opportunity a return to Los Angeles in Nineteen thirty nine by his mid twenties. Mickey was working for Bugsy Siegel playing the scrappy enforcer. To Siegel's Swath Hollywood charm. Bugsy himself wouldn't remain gene of interest or the squad for long. He was fatally shot in his mansion on June twentieth. Nineteen forty seven while reading the evening edition of the L. A.. Times is his murder was never solved but the hit was linked to his failure to complete construction on a casino in Las Vegas. His abrupt exit left a hefty power vacuum in his wake. Mickey Cohen was more than happy to step in to fill his bosses. Two tone leather shoes. If Bugsy Siegel was the epitome emme of classy Hollywood sportsman. Mickey Cohen was a devil-may-care mafioso with his own eccentricities. One of the more glaring ones was his his constant handwashing Mickey's undiagnosed. OCD was so severe. Insisted on ninety minutes showers even money. Money the spoil he loved the most wasn't immune to his scrutiny. He'd rather leave big tips for poor service at restaurants than touched the dirty change to put it back into his pocket. He was convinced that germs would get him before any bullets dead but just in case he he made sure to keep up a few good fronts. Mickey's garment stores were versatile he could employ goons legally and sweep the illegal cash. Under rug under the nebulous term business transactions. The gangster squad new this but they couldn't just loiter outside Michael's haberdashery and hope hope for incriminating evidence. They need a different avenue to catch. Mickey doing the Real Business Technology was the as up the squad sleeve. You've a bug inside Mickey's home turned out to be just the Trojan horse they needed. The squad had its very Syrian electrtonics. Wizard Conwell Keeler. A former mechanic with midwestern strength killer was more brains than brawn. An old operation in a military hospital left him with an iron brace on his knee so he wasn't able to chase down targets on foot. He could cobble together together listening devices but planting them was nearly a suicide mission for Keeler to bug. Mickey Cohen's House. He had to sneak through the mixed. Mix backyard past the dogs through the house into the crawlspace and get back out without being detected remarkably. He did it. The the gangster squad now had ears on the inside but it was a ticking clock. The batteries on the listening device would run dead in less than eleven days. James Time would be on the squad. Side as the batteries were nearing empty. They picked up word. That Mickey was having his television repaired. The TV was nearly brand new but had been picking up odd frequencies little did he know that this was due to the bug. The squad had planted just just days before when the TV Repairman headed to Mickey's the squad. Sent one of their own in uniform with him the to repair the TV be while simultaneously installing a new listening device. Right within the set itself. Mickey Cohen had paid for his own wiretapping and he was none the wiser in fact he graciously tipped the Repairman fifty dollars to split the bug. Inside Mickey's House proved fruitful. The squad learned that he was largely conducting his illegal operations in Burbank or an unincorporated parts of the city in Burbank. He'd built a casino not far off a movie studio lot that would be filled with equestrian. Riders and Studio Extras could would spend their downtime playing. craps the wheels of the business were Greece to buy bribes to Burbank's chief of police. Elmer Adams the chief was was happy to avoid patrolling near Mariposa street in exchange for crisp. New suits from Michael's haberdashery. The squad ahead struck gold with the bugs now they just had to sit back. Wait and let the case build itself finding dirt on Jack Dragana squads other main target was an entirely different game where Mickey was easy to spot going in and Out of his stores or proudly picking up the check at Hollywood restaurants drag kept a low profile. He owned a banana. Warehouse Near Downtown on dragged knows. Latin Import and Export Co. night guards and watchmen made it hard for the squad to get too close and when they did place bugs outside side they were quickly found and destroyed. Dragana wasn't a showboat. He needed distance and privacy to run. His various businesses is which included extorting the drycleaners. Union managing horse racing tips illegal gambling operations and bows of drug smuggling. The squad would have to get creative to catch dragnet stepping out of line and for all its claims of anti-corruption by late nineteen forty seven. The force was edging closer to the checkered ethics. It promised to leave behind if flashing their Tommy. Guns wasn't enough to intimidate mafiosos. Sometimes they would put the stubborn gangsters into their rusty fords and take them on a short trip up to Mulholland drive. The quiet hills were in Erie backdrop for a lecture Sergeant Jack. o'meara was rumored to waive his handgun around showing the criminals models. That he meant business. The squad claimed these chats in the hills never crossed the line but they were operating in murky territory. Tori it certainly conflicted with the squeaky clean reputation. Chief Hurrell had been pushing for and it was about to get them into trouble just two years after the squad's formation the LAPD hierarchy was out to be shaken up once again though many Angelenos look at the Black Dahlia murder as these scandal that Yank the lapd down into the trenches. The Brenda Allen incident proved rigged equally damning in the nineteen forties. Brenda Allen was. LA's most prominent Madame on February twenty first nineteen forty seven and Alan was seated in a car next to Sergeant Elmer Jackson of LAPD. Advice when gangster Roy peewee Lewis tried to hold up the car at gunpoint sergeant Jackson pretending to grab his wallet drew his gun and shot him dead. Unfortunately fortunately details of the incident leaked back to Mickey Cohen. Sergeant Jackson already had an enemy in Mickey thanks to regular raids of his clothing. Oh thing stores the MIC knew. He could capitalize on anything to get the cops to lay off his tail. The juicy detail of glamorous Madame carousing thing with the LAPD gave him potent ammunition in May nineteen forty nine. Mickey testified on behalf of one of his schoon's happy Meltzer who is being charged for possession of a deadly weapon. None other than Sergeant Jackson had arrested Meltzer when Mickey took the stand he insisted the arrest was just another incident of the LAPD trying to shake him down though it had nothing to do directly with the current trial. He produced recordings of the sergeant fraternizing with Brenda Allen to prove the COP was crooked. The damage was done by the end of the trial the jury was hung. And everyone was looking at Sergeant Jackson with suspicion inquiry into the peewee Lewis. Murder followed a weary chief.

They wanted to make sure that the work they'd been conducting since October of Nineteen forty-six hadn't been in vain Cracking down on mob activity was a tall order in one that came with a long and challenging history by the mid nineteen forties. The sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles was rife with organized crime from Inglewood to Santa Monica to Pasadena. Dozens of different law enforcement agencies were needed to police. La Counting because there was so much distance between neighborhoods. LAPD founded difficult to keep up. It was a small force in each year. Brought more droves of people to the city and mixed in with those migrants were criminals from New New York looking to extend their power and influence on the west coast. The problem of illegal businesses tucked within the massive city went back to the the nineteen twenties. During prohibition the money to be made of bootleg liquor sales was like a hot dose of kerosene on the smoldering fire organized. Crime mobsters jumped in and offered alcohol clubs in casinos all across the south land and with the millions. They were raking in. They were able to pay off.

Them say that they didn't feel that com that may have looked that confident you can imagine that you've got your family members maybe you're just by yourself shopping you. Don't really know what's going on and this whole thing started very abruptly that the chase ended right there the car crashed and then there was gunfire and the windows were being blown out of the front of the store a. Lot of people didn't know really what was going on immediately. I and, then the suspect came running in and held a group of people both employees and and patrons I in the front. Of the store and apparently didn't realize that more, were getting out from the. Back and getting, out, from areas he couldn't see at. One point according to one of the. The people inside he sent some of the other hostages to go in and try to round up other. People who were, in the story didn't want them to leave go find them and Bring them up here but he was rambling clearly not integrate state of mind but wanted to know the condition of his grandmother who he had. Just shot and kept asking the LAPD to to. Update 'em according to those who, were in the store on his grandmother's. Condition and then eventually the end of the whole thing and when we. Found this out it was pretty incredible he arrested himself essentially detained himself once he agreed to come out after several. Hours he told the LAPD negotiators I will put the handcuffs on. Myself, tossed in handcuffs and I will give up at the end and I'll walk out so that's what. They did they they threw in handcuffs he put them on he came out already handcuffed and then he was met by the team members outside they medically checked him out he has some minor injuries as well I and then he was arrested at that point that's what I was gonna ask you because I thought I heard somebody, say it looks like one. Of the hostages has As the gun like in other words they had. Either you know he had given it to them or they had gotten it from him somehow so that was the case Yeah well and and whether a hostage had the. Gun or not I'm, not sure on that but he did give himself up swat who is outside and there was no way he was going to get out of there I that and I it seems like he realized that and heaters did what they incredibly are able to do and talked him into to calmly coming out to. Not hurting anybody to, making sure that that he gave up without a gun battle that could have potentially killed a lot of people who were in that store with them I and you know this has gone on, for a couple of hours and that finally, he was willing to give, up assured him that grandma was alive now by the way she. Has gone into several surgeries now, and we understand she is expected to survive which. Is amazing African time but the and then he was taken. Into custody at that, point the hostages, immediately came, out they they were checked out those who needed to be there were about. Ten people who were transported To to hospitals, but most of those were, for relatively minor things and we don't know generally what, they were but it was you know things potentially like broken ankles panic..

"Of the homeless crisis it's probably gonna write rise a little bit more for all of these things that have started to be a be enacted as this crisis has grown into really just an amazing crisis none of them are really going to start taking real a fact for another couple of years and that's the thing that a lot of folks are realizing they say oh well we need a pass measure h we pasher past measured h h h all those things take time to implement takes many years to build some form of housing whether it be just a stopgap or permanent housing that's affordable it takes time to build that it takes time to put these resources in these these services out into the streets but also combine them with the the new building of all of these these homeless properties act is there daylight between city hall and la pd is city hall shocked shocked that so many homeless are being arrested or they bse falling back on that homeless is not a crime cramp they i don't think that there is a lot of daylight between the lapd in city hall i think that there are certainly some folks in city hall who wished that there would be fewer arrests but i think they understand that the way that the lapd is dealing with the homeless crisis is one in which their gleaning on enforcement as the last measure because the problem when you start to lean on enforcement according to both lapd and and people in city hall when he start to lean on enforcement as the the first measure is a e run out of space once you start criminalising homelessness then i mean you're just not going to have police able to deal with everything else that's happening in the city and you are probably not going to be able to solve.

"Lapd cadet controversy they're not the same but in people's minds there similar yeah and that's what i'm curious about because now they department says that the allegation is alarming and disturbing and it says it was discovered during a recent program review well i wonder if the program review happened right after the lapd cadet thing because they what wool we better look into our program to in other words was this something that would never had been discovered had this program review not happened did it only happened because the lapd thing all our was there as we talked about earlier some says stomach thing going on that may be didn't come to light until now because of daily pd thing i wish i would prefer that they do the investigation finish the investigation and then make some kind of announcement yes because you're telling me there's something really wrong but i can't tell you what is wrong but don't we don't even know exactly lee everything about what might be wrong 'cause we're investigate it's not like they said we've disciplined some buddy over something but we're not going to tell you anything about it because that implies they looked into it and reached the conclusion it seems like they don't have any conclusions yet but they don't want us to jump to any conclusions slightly leak dole already use the word leave but don't leak that you are investigating something wait until you're done and then make a big announcement about here's what happened in here's what we've done it you can't have it both ways yan all your parents whose kids are in the cadet program to saint tight tight does that trust seller worry about getting nothing to see here in speaking of nothing to see here well some go to capitol hill.
