Police Data Reveals Stark Racial Discrepancies in Social Distancing Enforcement Across New York City

"But this pandemic has highlighted New York struggles with longstanding issues that are among the worst we face and that's what we're going to discuss today early this month over one gloriously beautiful weekend new Yorkers of all walks of life poured outside filling the city's parks hang out on sidewalks saying hello to friends and neighbors and not always standing six feet apart the images that emerge from that weekend were striking on social media they were pictures of a lawn and one New York City park credit with people mainly white folks who are not socially distance and there was a video of violent arrest of an African American man who went to the hospital because of injuries sustained during an incident by Monday of last week there were new calls to release the data on arrests made for social distancing violations and on Friday the NYPD did release the numbers and they show that eighty one percent of all the arrests were of African American and Latin next voters and your car's public average money Williams was one of those who call for the arrest and summons data to be released he joins us now to talk about policing in New York during a corona virus outbreak Jumanji welcome to all of it thanks for having me appreciate so the dad of the NYPD released last week was for all the rest since the stay at home orders were issued in mid March how long had you and community leaders been asking for the data on social distancing arrest to be released what we reached out to the mailbox seven weeks ago a soul mate six saying that the focus on arrests and summonses we're going to re exacerbate historic problems and we actually gave it a completely different plans that could be executed of course we got a list of all three weeks ago we thought well this data because we started getting all information are about there are desperate district important added value I figure that'll be that Bob when they first initially ignored us and one finally got the gala it was astonishing to me ninety two percent of arrests black and brown sixty percent black in Brooklyn forty people arrested thirty five a black for black America thank you mention to some of the rest was was pretty appalling to complement a ministration we actually got elected because they said they were gonna do police in different what had you advocated for then that early proposal well even if you go back two months ago one of the main problems that yes city in the state with the governor and the mayor never had a clear message to begin are we start using words like quarantine lockdown but they never did make will never have the government issue you want to call it Paul he's going detente think about it we were construction sites open liquor stores males walking around all day long so we had a muddled message to begin to the extent that we start trying to unify the message we said let's have a holistic community response and so make every city agency involved fire department EMT NYPD sanitation try to get into a ball this call messaging on their vehicles let's have automated messaging will maybe locals are after five found let's get the emergency broadcast involved with the pick on every TV station let's get the cure violence which all groups that deal with violence communities will credible messengers let's get the clergy ball so we can be unified education all these communities but that was rejected and instead what we saw was policing and Chelsea pier people having amassed if anything being if we disturb them at all and then another few minutes people being punched in the face and fall to the ground it was very appalling to reach the same communities that have been ravaged distantly by cold over nineteen to begin again by some of the same people who will focus on what when it came to police you are a vocal critic of stop and frisk policing which also targeted black and Latino voters and it applies here is also opposed how concerned are you about the echoes of stop and frisk here I have been here to be concerned about echoes of over policing and district police what I dealt with the abuse Mustafa question Christopher van but you know even though we can get this abuse of course system and check it doesn't do anything about the over policing happens to black and brown communities so whether it will stop question first obviously broken windows how we didn't social distancing the problem is policing in black and brown communities what public health and public safety meeting black and brown communities what kind of building in the principle of transparency meet indiscriminate this administration has more for in some ways when it comes to transparency and accountability they've actually gone backwards even worse and when Giuliani Bloomberg in certain aspects I must disappoint my guess is public advocate Germany Williams you know there was such outcry on social media and everywhere actually after a video was posted of a violent arrest in the Lower East Side of a of a gentleman Mr Wright who was hospitalized reply zero and usually characterized videos of violent arrest as isolated incidents but he started talk about the need for more consistent enforcement what is consistent enforcement look like to you well first we should start with we don't need to open a conversation with the force and that was the problem the government almost among many things that you probably need to enforce this and that is sadly the mayor didn't take us up on our offer a few weeks ago he seems to be revisiting that and so that click here we also want to make sure we were not using the terminology or mark a mystery like actually is like yours you know the frequency is very small and it's not normal because one we have to stop complaining frequency in normal everyone will tell you that the vast majority of these characters and very well that's a good shake but that doesn't mean that the small amount that doesn't involve that doesn't mean that it's not normal for it to happen in black and brown communities so that is still mobile even if it's the least frequent so we have to be clear about that stop telling people they're not experiencing what they're experiencing and so we want to make sure that before committing it's not the main tool but to the extent you have to involve them like Pete it should be equitable you should be doing the same type of policing in every community so it seems that we know how to police we're just not doing it in every community my guess is public advocates Imani Williams you call for the department of justice to open an investigation into the impact of the corona virus on communities of color what's your end goal with this why did you call for the investigation but I also want to just start out looking for presents Eric Adams in the park if we reached out to thirty five elected officials across the country are all experiencing disparity impact and we said one of the J. to investigate there's nobody left to getting off now we do know who runs your cable we're hoping that the lifelong investigators were there will take you seriously and there's no workplace is not happening then probably New York state in New York City we have quite literally among the worst impact on planet earth and that is not just because of the federal government because of bill the bald eagle and more importantly it because of a governor you calm so what many people see more TV every single day what they don't know what the decisions you're making or not making have been extremely harmful to New York state and New York City and that's why we're seeing among the worst on planet earth and that's why the disparity is there because we do not Christina you can act open up and actually we just never adapted even as we got the information coming before that you have there's one small change you could make or enact tomorrow that you think would have a a big impact what would that be what we have to be honest about where we are the mistakes that we made and dedicated resource and funding to those communities immediately the virus doesn't discriminate but our responses and policies do and they have we just have to acknowledge that so when we look at the budget with the governors have cut Medicaid and trying to cut them to handle it out more and you look at the city budget when the mayor is trying to cut every single you job that exists in the summer while leaving NYPD homeless we know what happened so we must have a Phil Simmons that's a hundred percent but we have to use all the tools that we have so we need the government to look at every rate options will people own luxury yachts and planes left little who acted look at and he has secondly we have to get the resources for testing and contact tracing do begin mentally particularly is committed to working order while making sure that the information on the contact rate you've never used for third party never use for anyone besides people who are how to follow HIPAA laws and we can assure people that will be used for anything else psychotic and eventually

"New York for its entire. History has brought people together of wildly different backgrounds and that might be different races or cultures or a geographic areas Irish people and Jews and African Americans and you know Italians but also different classes. You had the tenement girl and the rich playboy and everybody in between well. That's just a natural for storytelling. But when these stories were told by Hollywood what was distinctly New York about them could get flattened out for the mainstream. If you look today at a Marx brothers movies the first couple of Marx brothers films. They're throwing all these terms around. Mommy's Nora Nori. There is Jewish for free loader animal crackers in the coconuts where designs you know for a New York audience but when the Marx Brothers then do moved to Hollywood and they begin making films for MGM. There's no Yiddish in those movies anymore. Right they become the sort of universal. You Know Hollywood movie Marx Brothers that that's from forty second street classical nine hundred thirty three musical about the Broadway chorus girl who becomes a star that connick number has the busby Berkeley dance formations but it also has the skyline the elevated train street vendors and attempted rape and murder. It's a film about New York. Made in Hollywood that helped form what sanders calls the mythic city. That dream version of New York. That's a distillation of the real place. Forty Second Street and all those back stage musicals that were made all the homes that were about the putting on of a Broadway show. They were shot in Broadway theaters. They were shot in Hollywood sound stage theaters. You know there was just endless numbers of these amazing films which did not have a single frame except possibly the establishing shot the opening shot would be shot in New York as the credits ran by with music behind him in. May Nineteen thirty. Three paramount turned the Astoria studios over to its main creditor western electric that companies filmmaking arm Eastern Services Studios INC operated it as a rental studio for independent productions. Its output varied widely. The Scoundrel for example was set in Manhattan's literary world. Noel Coward plays a ruthless hated publisher. Julian place the woman he charms. Mary's then abandoned putting something happened. Man I do live. I hope you're playing folk killed when you're dying using it on. The homepage of the year does not think of human when he dies. He's condemned to damnation unless he finds one person on Earth to mourn. Him novelists writes Ben. Hecht and Charles MacArthur rotated but at Astoria. They also got to produce and direct. They won an academy award for best original. We don't be Marquette. Hulu your new. There was a series of Spanish language. Musical starring Tangos Star Carlos Gardell Tambien. A nineteen thirty. Three's Emperor Jones was based on the controversial Eugene O'Neill play main character was a black pullman porter who escapes prison to become dictator of a small island. The film could only have been made with independent funding. Then the studios were called to service for World War Two. The Department acquired the property in Nineteen Forty Two and the pictorial center of the army. Signal Corps moved into make trading and propaganda films. They expanded the facility and built barracks for the soldiers. The army used motion pictures in the war effort and turned to experienced filmmakers for help frank. Capra worked on a series of orientation films called why we fight one episode related to our won the Oscar for best documentary. Just what was it? Made US change our way of living overnight but turned our resources are machines our whole nation into one vast awesome producing more and more weapons of war instead of the old materials by the end of the war the ABC employed over two thousand people making movies over half of them civilians. All this work even brought new film techniques like multiple angles shooting and change film in even more momentous ways for five years American audience. It has been seeing newsreels. And it's someone you know. A movie maker said well you couldn't you couldn't bring in the enemy for for production meeting you know before. The battle and people went out with sixteen millimeter cameras. And these lightweight cameras that could go everywhere. They saw actual action after the war audiences and creators had developed a taste for this more realistic filmmaking. There was an appetite. For a new kind of filmmaking. That would be used more available light less contrived cinematography be shot with faster. Granier film be more shot on location and feel more like a took place in real place and not this kind of fabricated construct and be more adult this desire for realism meant the glossy representations of New York. That Hollywood made before the war wouldn't do director is like Ilya. Kazan felt their stories needed New York locations and New York talent. You don't understand I coulda had class. Gerber contamination could have been somebody by the MID FIFTIES NEW YORK. Filmmakers were more than just contenders. The Oscar wins for on the waterfront in nineteen fifty five and Mardi fifty six affirm. That excellence could come from outside. Hollywood New York is setting is capable of whatever mood or dramatic statement? You WanNa make architecturally in its light for talk about winter light as Mr Bergman did. New York's winter light image. That Sidney Lumet in the documentary film titled by Sidney Lumet. He grew up on the lower east side in nineteen fifty seven. He went from directing theater and TV. Two movies with twelve angry men. You're asking us to believe that somebody else did the stabbing with exactly the same kind of knife. Larger a million or one go onto make more New York classics like Serpico Dog Day afternoon and network. He died in twenty eleven. I'm not comfortable anyplace but New York when I leave New York for any other place in the United States My nose starts to bleed. Filmmakers at this time took full advantage of New York locations for their exterior shooting. When they needed a controlled indoor set they may do with whatever studios were available. Tv Or old movie studios the old Bronx by graph for example operated as a rental studio under different names until the seventy s the Astoria Studios. Meanwhile were still occupied by the army. There was some leftover stages from the twenty s and they reuse them and Sidney Lumet told me amazing stories of going onto these studios which he was in an editing room up in the Bronx. That had been Edison's old editing suite with an e draw you know kind of worked into the curtains E for Edison. These were the oldest movie studios in the world and they were using them in the nineteen fifties to make all those great early in mid fifty s movies like Twelve angry men and on the waterfront the city eventually recognized how vital New York and the screener to each other in nineteen sixty six mayor. John established the first mayor's film office in the world to lower hurdles to filming their Lindsay's film office streamline the permitting process and removed a lot of red tape for shooting in the city he even dedicated a police.
