"Six fifty one good morning. This is the California report. I'm penny. Nelson. A small protest in east Sacramento. Last night grew into a much larger event involving around one hundred riot police and eighty four arrests the protest was in response to the Sacramento county district attorney's decision not to charge. The police officers who shot and killed an unarmed Stefan Clark in his grandparents backyard a year ago, the twenty two year old Clark who is black was holding a cell phone that police say they thought was a gun as David Romero reporter with capital public radio is with us now as well. What happened last night? What was the scene on the streets of Sacramento? We'll all started in front of a trader Joe's on this Poulsen boulevard, they marched through what's called the fab forties. It's a really wealthy area of town. And they marched there. Because. They say that's where the people who make decisions are in in town. It was pretty peaceful they walked through the streets up and down these these mansions in front of a hospital, and they were there was one point were guy. Can't with a make America. Great hat, and he tried to start an altercation, but the leaders of the protests tried to quell that pretty immediately, and they kept the March going, and then when we made our way back to this trader Joe's, they were actually going to end the protest early. There's about two hundred people there, and then all these police came and they had their announcement saying, you know, don't basically like disperse or like bad things can happen, essentially, and then most most people did disperse, but a group of probably about well eighty four, you know, kept going, and they went over this overpass on the freeway, and there were police on both sides and the police arrested them all our pastors. They were students there's all kinds of people that they arrested. Was it largely peaceful even though people were being arrested? Yeah. It was very peaceful the entire time every time someone tried to do something that was out of character of the peaceful protests the leaders stopped at even when there was a a wannabe fight with a make America. Great hat guy is interesting. This is getting a lot of press coverage, and yet it sounds like it was a pretty calm event. Yeah. You know? I actually went back to the station to go file a story, and I got called back on it. Because in the two minutes, I was gone. All these arrests happened because we were presuming that it was going to be who's going to be a peaceful protest overall. And it just in those two minutes, it just escalated really fast on the police's end. Now that this has become a bigger event are more protests expected I talked to a couple of community activists, and you know, their whole goals you these targeted community events. You know, they did it in one on the mall and Sunday in the end up shutting down the Arden fair mall in Sacramento, and they did this one tonight. And so they do. You have more plan for the future. And there there is a big city council meeting tomorrow night, and it's expected that it could be a bit bigger now that says David Romero, a reporter with capital public radio.

Imagery, this time it's in Newport Beach, where high school students took photos of a drinking game with red solo cups arranged in the shape of a swastika another image showed students with their arms raised like a Nazi salute Peter levies at the Anti-Defamation League in Orange County. We continue to be surprised that it's happening which is really a call for all of us that we have to do something more that the current remedies of saying, oh, they're just kids. Oh, it's just a joke. That is not sufficient he says, the has recorded more and more incidents of hate crimes and speech around the country over the past couple of years, especially in schools, and we know that it starts with a joke. Levy says this incident is an opportunity to teach students about discrimination and bias. He plans to meet with district officials tomorrow for the California report, I'm Michelle Wiley onto politics.

I hope not. Says there's forty seven cities in California who don't have housing plans that meet state requirements many of them affluent communities who don't want low income neighbors. Some mayor cited cost as a major obstacle to address that newsome's budgeted two hundred and fifty million to help update their housing plans and promises five hundred million in grants if they reach certain milestones. So whatever excuses they had in the past. Which is we don't have the resources LA has or San Francisco has we're going to address those issues.
