Santa Rosa police investigating complaints filed by protesters
"New report alleges an extensive number of violent incidents against protesters by law enforcement in Santa Rosa during the recent Black lives matter protests Hey, CBS's Mike Dewald has more. The incident stayed back to a chaotic first weekend of protests with some multiple tense standoffs between protesters and police. Tear gas and rubber bullets and a massive police response downtown. Dimitra Smith, chair of the Cinema County Commission on Human Rights, says her group's inbox was overflowing with reports of what was happening on the ground and in hearing the protester stories. We were just saying that you know they didn't match at all, what was being put out in press releases and press conferences. No, like what followed was an investigation and a thorough 40 page report detail ING stories from protestors. Jail conditions, abuses during arrest and a disproportionate use of force against persons of color.

The commission is demanding a number of things, including a comprehensive an independent review of the police department.

Ghislaine Maxwell due to appear at bail hearing
"Girlfriend and suspected accomplice in his alleged sex trafficking ring will appear in front of a judge today. As prosecutors revealed startling new details about her arrest earlier this month. Court documents filed by Delaine Maxwell's attorneys claim the 58 year old British socialite who they say hasn't left the country since Jeffrey Epstein's arrest last July is not a flight risk. Her legal team is offering a $5 million bail package to secure her release. That funding is back by six co signers, Maxwell siblings, relatives and friends and includes property in the UK valued at roughly $3.75 million. CBS News Legal analysts Rikki Klieman says Maxwell's attorney's face a major burden and advocating for her bail but have made a solid case. The defense wrote a very persuasive memorandum. More important, Perhaps even then, the package is the reasoning. Number 1/19 that not only might kill the lane Maxwell would certainly would not benefit the victims off Jeffrey Epstein and allegedly of Alain Maxwell. But secondly, what they are you Is the fact that she was never hiding. It is possible. Then Maxwell's team says she simply left the public eye to avoid media attention and scrutiny. But prosecutors believe Maxwell has tried to hide before and does present a flight risk. According to court documents. When FBI agents approached Maxwell's New Hampshire home, she fled to another room. Investigators also claim they noticed a cellphone wrapped in tin foil, which prosecutors called a seemingly misguided effort to evade law enforcement. The same documents reveal. Maxwell is linked to more than a dozen bank accounts around the world, worth more than $20 million in total and has three passports in her name. Last summer, Jeffrey Epstein died by hanging while awaiting trial at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. It prompted intense scrutiny over How the jail was run and outrage on behalf of the obscene accusers who were unable to face him in court. Maxwell is being held in a similar facility roughly five miles from where Epstein died Since her arrival at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. Details have emerged about what's being done to protect Maxwell. Law enforcement officials confirmed to CBS News that Maxwell Sheets were taken away and she wore prison issue clothes made of paper. I think you have to assume people do want her dead. Cameron Lindsay served as the warden of the Brooklyn jail from 2007 to 2009 where Maxwell is currently being held. Miss Maxwell allegedly knows some very, very damaging information about a multitude of allegedly very important people. It is just absolutely essential that the government get this right that.

Ford employees ask the company to stop making police cars
"Motor Company is out with a Ah, process that they're going through about 100 employees have gone public with their request to the automaker to stop selling police vehicles because Police are brutal and they're racist. Ford executives are weighing the request and have not yet made an announcement. But there's a lot of pressure on social media for Ford to tell police departments they will no longer sell. The vehicles to them. So what is Toyota get vehicles them selling, you know, picking up the slack market share because right now serious, San Diego has Toyota four runners the SUVs. So I mean, thie employees air urging the cut that their boss the company do not make and sell. Ah police units. Ah, police cruisers to city so that Some other. There's still gonna be police cars. Why would you not want to get your fair share of that market place? If your employees of Ford apparently, these people don't want their jobs, I mean, I would put them on the top of the list of fire. All right, somebody safe and your name to the layoff list If we lose the contract, you know, with the Tuscaloosa, Alabama Police Department that you're the 1st 1 to relinquish your well, why don't you just quit forward then? I mean, why? Why? Why does four have to stop making the product? That's what they're in the business of doing is making automobiles. Yeah. Bia Social Justice warrior full time. You don't need to work out. Ford, you know, support is not consistent with your values. So be a social justice warrior. Put your money where your mouth is and quit your job, mate. This This is absurd. I've decided. I don't like it. Don't don't want to give Ah police Cruiser to Ah! Ah, car to the police. But does that mean that you also are going to use 901? I'd love to get the name of the 100 people and block their ability from their cell phone to dial 911 is apparently where they don't need no police and there's their community. They don't need cars. They don't need police. So no. 911 for you. I mean, this is where you start pointing out the Um, the bankruptcy of some of these folks in terms of what they're saying, their advocate and and the absolute absolute juvenile nature of these causes. I mean, this is child's play, right? I mean, this's not thoughtful. This isn't academic. This isn't deep. This isn't even You know, argumentative. I mean, this is this is just this is foolishness. This is this is child's play. The head of Ford has sent a letter to employees and it it reads in part, quote as we meet weekly in our global team huddles. Invariably there are questions that don't get answered, given the short time we have together. Or simply would be better addressed off line. On it goes on to talk about. Ah Ah, you know the fact that quote Bill Ford, and I believe deeply that there is no room for systemic repression and racism that have been exhibited by law enforcement encounters gone wrong. Um Your your product had nothing to do with it. Why are you taking ownership of part of the problem? You made the car. You didn't make the police officer or even the police officer's equipment or the rule book and I go back to having a CEO of a company. Come out with a statement like that. That that somehow they've made the judgment that racism was driving. Ah, ah, the inappropriate use of force. Again. I don't think we can say that. I think it's nice to say Well, if the cop is white, and the suspect was black, the victim was black. So therefore it must be racism. That's a pretty lousy assumption to be making. And to have a CEO of one of our largest companies come out and basically validate that and then go on in a what is a nine paragraph letter explaining how they're wrestling with this decision about literally saying we're not gonna sell cars to a pretty significant portion. You know, we had at least I think 600 800 cars. Andi. I know that these are not cheap cars. So let's say that there because they're there outfitted with a bunch of special equipment and stuff. So let's say that these cars are 50 grand each for the city of San Diego. Alone. That's a $40 million hit for Ford. For just a cycle of vehicles $40 million. That's just for San Diego Police department, then multiply that by all the police departments across the country. Your shareholder and Ford. Relatively ticked. Out on the opposite end of the spectrum. I'm not a shareholder in Ford. I'm relatively ticked. I'm just relatively tick that the company is taking this kind of stance. Whether they're toward with their emotions. It's the car. It isn't the attitude of the law enforcement official. It isn't It isn't anybody. It's it's the inanimate object, but yet they feel like that. Somehow they're contributing to systemic racism by manufacturing, a police unit. Now on the other end of the spectrum. A CEO of a food company paid a small compliment to President Trump. A Rose Garden ceremony yesterday. And now he is facing calls for resignation, and even members of Congress have urged people to boycott the food manufacturer.

In fact, they managed to keep it. kind of under wraps as long as they did is pretty impressive, as well good, good obstacle, but yeah, just a really really interesting story and a close to them.

I think what's different hair. When it comes to the increase chat operation as opposed to technical investigations by law enforcement is the Shit scale I mean. We're not talking about single dark web marketplace. With some Athens some sellers of cocaine that sort of thing. This was the technical infrastructure for a large chunk of organized crime across continents. We're talking hitman money launderers drug traffickers, basically the real career criminals used this phone service and is very hard to overstate how big of a blow this is to them.

A practical steps to protect those at risk of suicide
"Last year firearms were responsible for fifty one percent of suicides about twenty four thousand lives and seventy four percent of homicides about fourteen thousand lives. This is Dr. Michael Wilks with a second opinion. Berry is a forty one year-old Roofer who reported to me feeling suicidal when he told me he'd purchased a gun. My worry level went way up. There's little worse than knowing that someone is at risk of. Of hurting themselves or others, and not being able to do anything to stop it over the past four years or so nineteen states, including California have passed laws called extreme risk, protection orders or your P. O.'s these laws make it illegal for a person who is believed to be a danger to themselves or others to possess access, receive, or have in their custody, a firearm or ammunition for the. The duration of the order typically one year, the civil process begins with an immediate family member, a household member, law, enforcement, or sometimes a health professional, petitioning the court for an immediate ERP oh. If granted, the police requested to enforce the order, so the law sounds like it makes sense, but does it work well. The first report I've seen was published this week in the annals of internal medicine and And it looked at two hundred and thirty eight Erp owes filed over about a three year period in Washington state in Washington the petitioner requesting the ER. Peo- fills out detailed form explaining why they feel. The person is at risk of causing personal injury to themselves or others by way of a firearm. If the situation is deemed to be urgent, they can request an emergency implementation of a temporary. Which lasts only twenty one days longer EERP does then require an appearance before a judge of the two hundred and thirty P. O.'s filed. Eighty percent were granted of those that were granted thirty percent related to fears of suicide, thirty six percent, related to fears of harming someone else, and the remainder involved fear of both the vast majority of Europeans were filed against white men who were. Were in the age group of twenty, five to forty, four about half had a history of prior mental health problems and half reported to have problems of substance abuse, interestingly, a third of the ER PEOs resulted in a court, ordered mental health evaluation, and many of those people were able to access long-term treatment. It also turns out that well over a third of E. R. P.. P. O. Orders were to people with substance abuse problems prior domestic violence attempts or a prior arrest. In most cases, police removed only one firearm, but in other cases police reported removing a dozen or more, so the study suggests that for every ten to twenty RPO's ordered. One life is saved by preventing suicide reports suggest that often when families know of a person's risk to themselves or Or others they are not aware of their ability to have firearms removed from that person. Of course, another problem is at families, or even doctors could fear retribution. The e Rpo we got for Berry was to protect him because we cared, but I'm not sure that Barry will ever want to return to see me as his doctor.

Notwithstanding or conscious beliefs or conscious convictions, and we'll talk about why a future developments in Vr police training may fall short. Tell me why you shot. Shot because he was within that zone, you know I felt there was leased departments have long used actors playing and instructional videos to train officers to deal with real life scenarios, but this can be. Pricey and not very realistic. People who make and sell virtual reality say the technology can improve training. If you play video games. You're probably familiar with VR. It's been around for a while, but we asked Wall Street Journal attack video game reporter Sara Needham, in to explain virtual reality is all encompassing. It's a matter of hardware so when you put on APR headset. Everything you see up down left right turnaround. Everything is in there virtual world one hundred percent. You cannot see anything else, so you feel very immersed the main difference between VR other video simulations you can actually interact with this computer generated three D world. It's so. That Sarah says you can get sucked in and lose yourself. I experienced this myself. playing a racing game where I was sitting down very low, and we felt like a cockpit of a vehicle, and as we went around the turns, I literally felt like we were going to crash into the wall, because I wasn't driving very well, and it scared me. For Police. It's not about the thrill or fear of race track. It's about learning how to lean into the fear and still be able to deal with it calmly. If you feel like you've done something before been in a situation before. You're better at knowing how to react. You can practice your actions in these potentially life, threatening situations and hopefully resolve altercations peacefully. We'll talk more about this in just a bit. It's one of the reasons that some of the biggest law enforcement groups in the country like the Los Angeles. Police Department are turning to Vr. The LAPD has a history connected to police, misconduct and misuse force. In Nineteen ninety-one. Were caught on tape brutally beating motorist Rodney. King a black, man. The officers acquitted of criminal charges sparking riots in Los Angeles. In the early two thousands. The department was put under Federal Investigation for. Engaging in a pattern or practice of excessive force, false arrests and unreasonable searches and seizures, the government came in with what's known as a consent decree to change the culture in the LAPD. Dr. Lou Pinella joined the department in the middle of all that in two thousand five. The Rodney King incident put a laser focus on LAPD, tactics and training as well. I believe that we have continued to expand on that every year, both by how we work with our community and the training that we offer. She's the director of Police Training and education at the LAPD and she revamped its training. Process Department currently trains officers with something called a forced option simulator. It's often referred to as first generation. VR says it trains police in real life scenarios you walk into a room and one walls, completely blank and on their, we will project a scenario that an officer has to handle. Handle, it could be anything from a person in a park to a bank robbery to an office scenario, workplace violence scenario, something like that and officers will get a call, and they'll come into the room and and try to respond to what is in front of them. In the meantime, there's a instructor at the back of the room who be on a computer. Computer and as the scenario unfolding, they are able to branch in different directions, where either the officers are calming, the situation down, or it becomes more difficult to handle

"Over the years, but they were not nothing. None of this is very specific. And so there was really nothing. So Lieutenant stout was lucky in the sense of the Gainesville rally was kind of fizzle because the protesters far overwhelmed, the white nationalist who came, but it will straits your larger point that he couldn't find information about who might becoming and what the threat might be. So whose job is it to be monitoring extremists on the far, right? Who do pose a threat of islands? The joint terrorism task forces the D H S run fusion centers at the local level. They are able and should be able to at least track p pay attention to these events. That's the first number one pay attention to these events where there's repeated violence in their public and to take a look at who's engaging in the violence, and chances are most of those guys who are really engaging in violence are people who are violent many of them have criminal histories. They are in the system at that point. There are any number of law enforcement agencies that can do a little digging and can alert the next town. That's planning. I mean, these guys announced their events quite some time in advance. So that's enough time for both local and state and federal law enforcement to look at who have been the more violent people within these groups. What have they done? Do. They have any history of violence. Do they have? Criminal histories are. They out on parole and just monitor them that is what does not seem to be getting done. So you're saying there isn't much there. There aren't many resources being put toward far right extremism. But if you compare the numbers of violent attacks from jihadis in the US extremist Muslims with the number of attacks from far right extremists in the US, like white, nationalist. How do the numbers compare the number of far-right extremist attacks and deaths related to far-right extremism vastly vastly outnumber the number of dust connected to his lungs extremism. It's by the AD L the information because the numbers from twenty seventeen I believe we're seventy one percent of the cases of domestic extremists related violence were committed by members of the far-right twenty six percent or Islam extremists. I mean, these numbers will vary depending on who's counting and how they're counting. But if you look at a survey of maybe five or six different groups that look at these numbers, the one conclusion, you can draw is that the far right is responsible for the majority of these incident you right after President Trump came into office. That's security analysts noted with alarm, which seemed to be a systematic erosion of the department of homeland security's analytic and operational capabilities with regard to countering violent extremism, and you're referring there to violent extremism from the far. Right. And that this began with the appointment of a new national security team. What were the features of this new national security team when President Trump came to to the White House. So Donald Trump was advised prior to being elected by in terms of national security by a number of people who came from what? What we might call the Islamic phobic fringe, including people like Frank Gaffney who is a long time peddler of anti Muslim conspiracy theories in Washington. He's former Reagan administration official and when Trump came in. He brought with him people like we'll Steve Bannon embrace some of these ideas, you had Sebastian Gorka and his wife, Catherine gorba- who had run this little think tank in Washington, which was very much devoted to anti-islam perspective, anti jihad perspective, this is in in some ways, there is an industry in his Lama phobia industry, similar.
"law enforcement" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder
"We are back Sam cedar on the majority report on the phone. Matthew Horace author, we've Ron Harris of the black and the blue. A cop reveals the crimes, racism and injustice in America's law enforcement. Matt, welcome to the program. Good morning. Thanks for having me. Right. Let's just start with like, you know you, you tell the story of of Bill being. I think it was in Philly, and having a run in with a canine, I guess a cop, if you will tell us about that and how that ended up how you ended up entering law enforcement yourself. Sure. Well, you know, I was home for from college NC double a division one athlete. I was home for one summer from school, and I decided to attend to celebration when the Philadelphia seventy Sixers won a national title. And when I when I exited from the subway station, I saw police officer was a dog moving in my direction. I didn't know if they were doing crowd control, whatever, but out of nowhere hit by the dog and I'm left on the street to believe they officer yelled some obscenities at me and and kept it moving. When I finally got help from a police officer to get to the hospital, they took a full report and and someone's later when I was in the hospital for about a week, but somewhat later, my parents got a copy of police report and the report. Number one, let me as a suspect, not a victim and number two in the report, the police officers put that it didn't know the nature of my injuries are had sustained them. So that was my first interaction with the, you know what happens behind the blue line? Well, I'm curious. I mean, what was it tell us about your reaction? I mean, the what was. Is your experience with police before then? Well, up into that point, the only I'd never really had any one on one experience, the least other than the officers who worked at my high school and you know, growing up growing up in Philadelphia. I was Miller with all the stories about policing and Frank Rizzo, and the passed through my parents and family members and others. But I had never really had any particularly negative experiences what police up to that point. But I will say this I was determined not to let that Turbie and it didn't get in the way of me having interest in public safety because I felt like I should be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Well, I mean, so what I mean? I'm just curious to me that growing up. As a, you know, black a youth in Philly? No, no sort of predisposition one way or another to the cops? Well, no, because I grew up, grew up in a middle class up in middle class community. My parents are working people educated. We were always taught to respect the thirty and extent that you could. We were, you know, I was taught to sort of understand my surroundings, keep myself out of problematic situations. And when police officers tell you to do something, you do it. I mean, I had those kind of parents that they'd have gotten a call from the police department. They come down there. They come down here pretty angry and probably more with me than with them. So I stayed away from police. I stayed out of trouble now try to lead, you know example stuff. Okay. And so. All right..
