"About a ballot box battle over bringing back affirmative action. And the Black American who battled systemic racism for an assembly seat more than a century ago. Against all odds, he had a point of view and an approach to life that was far more optimistic. And I had very high expectations. I'm Steve, Do you take us all coming up on case here? W after this news And I'm Larry Pearl. Here is what's happening at 6 30 Prosecutors in L. A county have filed attempted murder charges today against a 36 year old man in connection with the ambush shooting of two sheriff's deputies in Compton earlier this month. Deante Murray was already in custody for two weeks in a separate Carjacking case. Deputies were sitting in their vehicle when they were shot. Both survived the attack, but were seriously injured. That evening, I said. We'll find this man and that can report today We have found our suspect. That is Sheriff Alex Vienna Wave and a press conference announcing the charges. Ellie Sheriff's homicide captain Kent Wagner sent today that surveillance video information from witnesses and a gun recovered at the scene of the Carjacking that Murray allegedly committed. All played a role in the investigation. It was determined through ballistic comparison that the pistol recovered was the pistol used to shoot the transit services devotees. Additionally that pistol was conclusively linked through forensic testing to suspect Dante Murray. Wagner said Investigators had suspected Marie might have been involved in the Compton shooting when he was arrested for the Carjacking. But Took time to prove it. Earlier on Vienna Waves said the two cases were not related. He has faced criticism from activists and elected officials for recent fatal shootings by deputies and for not cooperating with investigations. The glass fire in Northern California has burned around 50,000 acres and destroyed at least 50 homes. It's also damaged a world renowned restaurant and several wineries between devastation from fires and the economic downturn. Wine country status as a tourist hub could be in jeopardy. Here's KCR W's Matt Gillom. Napa County is more than vineyards. It's a dining destination. It's home to restaurants taking out multiple Michelin stars. Among their accolades. This week, the restaurant of Meadow Lark, a three star Michelin establishment burned to the ground in the glass fire. Was one of just 15 restaurants in the U. S.

Those who may be heading to the Napa area are advised to directly confirmed travel plans with their destinations. That is Casey are Toby's Matt Dillon reporting and President Trump's consistent attacks on mail in voting appeared to be having an impact, a new poll shows. His supporters are much less likely to vote by mail this November. UC Berkeley poll shows 50% of California Trump supporters say they will vote by mail, The other half say they will go to a polling place. That's compared to 90% of Joe Biden supporters who planned to cast mail in ballots. Berkeley pollster Mark DiCamillo says mail in voting only recently became a partisan issue as the president ramped up criticism that used to be coming from down troops own words because they're following along. Elections, Experts say voting by mail a safe and secure ballots will be mailed out in California by October. 5th at 6 33. You're listening to greater L A on K C R w the show that connects you to the people and the places of Southern California. I'm Steve. Take us. Here's a question for you Should race be a factor when it comes to getting into college. It is a question that you and other California voters will decide this election and both sides of the issue are formulating their arguments. Being a UC student being a woman of you know, a black woman and personally I think it's kind of insulting and racist to lower the standards for People based on the color of their skin. Caliph Antonia is a high school teacher. She's against Proposition. 16 Community College student Catherine Squire supports the ballot initiative to bring back affirmative action. There's also just a certain set of obstacles that come with being a minority student that doesn't necessarily get recognized in the admissions process. What prop 16 is really trying to get at is to just have race be considered a factor a month income in the moats. All these other factors that are already considered now the proposition would allow the state of California to look at someone's race or sex. Or color, ethnicity or national origin when making decisions about things such as admissions to public universities, employment with state government or awarding state government contracts. KCR W's Benjamin got lead has been covering the story for us, and he's here now with a proposition primer. Hey, Benjamin, unless Steve California used to allow affirmative action for state schools and jobs But that was up until the mid about the mid 19 nineties, when when voters took up this very same issue and proposition what was then proposition 209. What are arguments in favor of bringing affirmative action back in essence? Nullifying proposition 209 that was passed What more than 20 years ago. Sure, if you believe something like race should be a factor in getting into. Let's just use the University of California, for example, Then you would be in favor of this proposition. Proposition, 16. Affirmative action. Steve is basically an acknowledgement of past practices that discriminated against certain groups or individuals. And it's one idea this is of how to remedy that. One of the proponents of this current ballot initiative Proposition. 16 is a man named Vincent Pan. He's the executive director of Chinese for affirmative action. It's a self described progressive organization. The ban on affirmative action in California is really held back women and people of color. In largest and most of her state in the country. And when you understand How structural racism and systemic discrimination work. You understand that race conscious, gender conscious programs are critical. So you have those systemic issues. But there's also what's happening on the ground right now. Katherine Squire who we heard from in the introduction to this issue, she identifies his latte next. She's a female student..

A survey from the Healthcare Foundation and Ipsos reveals almost 30% of black and Latin. Next residents know a covert victim. Socioeconomic status also was a factor. One in four people living below the poverty line knows someone who succumb to the virus. Although a majority of Californians 69% agree the state should implement stricter stay at home rules to slow the spread of the virus, the poll finds politics influencing enthusiasm. Three quarters of self identified liberals strongly support tougher rules if they would prevent more deaths. 40% of conservatives Aaron the strongly support category. When it comes to reopening schools. There's an equally wide chasm. Half of liberals strongly supports stricter covert rules. If it means schools could welcome back students sooner. Just 23% of conservatives do. The case here. W I'm Matt Gillom.

It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm No well King. Good morning. Congressional forecasters are predicting something breathtaking. The federal debt right now is almost as big as thie entire U. S economy, and by next year, they predict it will be bigger and it will soon surpass the debt load from World War two. So what is all of this mean? NPR's chief economics correspondent. Scott Horsefly has been looking through the data. Good Morning, Scott. Good morning. Well, had we get in this much debt. The government has been spending trillions of dollars to address both the health care and economic fallout from the pandemic. At the same time, households and businesses have been earning less money, so they're paying less in federal taxes. When the government pays out more and takes in last the whole in its budget gets bigger, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office they're the bean counters here in Washington. They say red ink has more than tripled this year to $3.3 trillion That's about 1/6 of GDP, and that makes this the biggest deficit has been as a share of the economy since 1945 And then next year, the government's stead is expected to be bigger than them the economy, which sounds astonishing. What does it mean exactly if if, if you think the deficit is the amount you charge on your credit card in any given year if you don't pay that off, and instead you keep adding to it, year after year that accumulated balance. Is your debt and next year, the federal government's debt is going to add up to Maura than all the goods and services we produce in the country in a year. Our GDP it's the first time that government debt has outstripped GDP in 75 years, so it is a milestone. As I popping is that might be the only well Even the people who were usually deficit scolds have acknowledged. This is not the time for the government to suddenly get stingy. Rather, they say, You know, we're in a once in a lifetime pandemic, and the government needs to put everything it can into solving that then once that's done, we can worry about the debt and deficit. That all sounds fair. Given how many people are out of work. How many people are going hungry being evicted? I want to go back to the analogy of the credit card and ask you how much room does the government have left on its credit card? There's still room, you know, Even with these huge deficits, the government's borrowing costs are still pretty low. In fact, the CEO says interest payments are expected to keep falling for the next few years. That won't last forever. In the latter half of the coming decade. The aging population and rising healthcare costs will put some pressure on the budget. But right now there are plenty of people willing to lend money to the U. S government for next to nothing in interest. It's also worth noting. No, I thought we were already running a big federal deficit before the pandemic hit. We were almost a trillion dollars in the red last year, when times were good. So little wonder Debts have been piling up during the deepest recession that most of us have ever lived through. We're has all of the money that the government has been spending during the pandemic. Where has all of it been going? Some of it went for those $1200 relief payments that most Americans got during the spring time. Some of it has gone to prop up struggling businesses with the forgivable loans.

And as long as they're struggled to pay is a result of the Corona virus Pandemic Lady reporter Katie or says tenants. Rights groups were disappointed. The measure fell short of preventing all evictions. This is seen as a stopgap measure to prevent really potentially millions of people from just being evicted and losing their homes during a pandemic. State Assembly member of Laura Friedman represents Burbank and Glendale. I'm not satisfied. There's a lot of work that we still have to do as far as I'm concerned to protect tenants to help with the economic recovery, too. Really monitor what's happening with the pandemic. I think we have a lot of work to do over the fall, and I think we should be having hearings over the fall to to monitor the situation and to build consensus, so that when we come back in January, we're ready to go. Bill was a last minute compromise with landlord groups that opposed another bill that would have kept tenants from being evicted if they did not pay any rent as late as April. Lawmakers carved out about two dozen more exemptions from the States. Landmark it Gig Economy law, which requires companies to treat workers more like employees instead of independent contractors. Among other things, the legislation sent to Governor Newsome would end what critics call unworkable limits on services provided by freelance photographers, photojournalists and freelance writers and editors.

After an unprecedented shutdown due to Corona virus that spanned more than 70 days, casinos along the strip started welcoming back visitors on June 4th. In July, the first full month the city was technically back in business. A little more than 1.4 million people went to Sin City that's down 61% from the same time last year. The decline and travel across the board and the slow recovery of some areas heavily tied to the gaming industry has prompted MGM Resorts International toe lay off more than a quarter of its U. S workforce. That amounts to roughly 18,000 people. MGM, the largest casino operator in Vegas, said it will continue to pay health benefits to lay off employees through the end of September. And another facet of the Las Vegas economy has effectively dried up. The desert oasis is a worldwide convention destination.
