"He's a nice guy, but I'm much better than my dad. We always think that, right? And so my grandfather believe it or not, he was in a San Francisco police officer. Again, never wanted to be a cop, thought I'll never do that. I'll be an FBI agent that's much more sophisticated. Well, lo and behold, I'm 25 years old living at my dad's house and I'm just sick and tired of it and I want to get out and he goes, buddy, I think you should apply for local law enforcement. I think you'll really like it. And I thought, you know what? The old man might be onto something. And I always wanted a job that I could use my mind and my body. And I thought police work would fit that modality because you got to be a tactician with your mind. And you got to be able to be physically able to handle yourself. And I did martial arts and bodybuilding. So I thought this is actually going to be a perfect job. I'll do this for two years and then I'll transfer the FBI. So lo and behold, I apply to a police department and I lived in California. I applied at the time to the Oakland police department. Now, I didn't know much about Oakland other than the Oakland a's. Well, I got hired by the Oakland police department and let me tell you, there's a lot more going on in Oakland than I realized. It is historically known as and if you probably I haven't Googled it in a while, but if you Google, it's probably top 5 most dangerous cities in the United States. Always up there as a murder capital. Robbery, violent crime. They lead. They lead the world. So I didn't realize that. And it was a great experience for me to be honest. And even though I'm not a police officer anymore, and I'll kind of talk about that. I still think it's one of the most noble professions you can do if you're doing it right. And Oakland, you know, again, it's like the Harvard, I would say, of police work. And the reason I say that is because if you do 5 years in Oakland, it's like doing a 20 year career somewhere else. So it's high paced, fast action. It's an it's an understaffed department so that you're always, you just see so much, they say. And as a matter of fact, the FBI did a study and they said three years in Oakland is the equivalent of 18 years like anywhere else that's some regular city. So pretty cool stuff. So I worked there for 6 years and then I transferred over to the San Francisco to police department and I worked there for about 8 and a half years.

He's got a problem with a lot of disaffected angry. Frustrated californians who just simply are fed up with the direction the state is going. And i'm hearing from california's every day.

Two point two million californian signed a petition to recall this man and it is estimated that between twenty five percent. They've even thirty percent.

The most elite restaurant in america is not one of the most elite restaurants in the world and wind.

Are you going to justify the fact that he released under his supervision. Twenty thousand convicted felons under early release because the corona virus and statistically the majority are gonna re-offend when he first came into office one hundred and seventy thousand people behind bars pretty soon. It's going to be less than ninety. And something like seventy five seventy five thousand more or eligible for early release over the next several months.

"Know how they have to carry them and they make sure that they are all licensed and they know the distance they have to maintain from police officers as police officers are making these arrests. Will the cops don't like it. This kind of scrutiny is just like no and so they keep trying to pull over the panthers and arrest them but there are no laws that the panthers have broken because the panthers no vote law and so then the oakland police department runs to the state legislature. They run to don mulford who is a conservative member in the california legislature. And it's like you've got to do something these panthers these panthers lord these answers and mulford like i got your back and with the help of the nra. They draft legislation to ban.

How do we make the panthers illegal. How do we stop the panthers. The panthers are a threat. And so you get the mulford act. Which governor ronald reagan eagerly signed. And so you get this really interesting configuration of a conservative legislator. The nra and republican governor ronald reagan eagerly upholding eagerly riding for gun control legislation. Right and this is of course. In contrast to the nra reaction to the nine hundred ninety three waco siege where law enforcement raided the compound that belonged to a religious sect on suspicion that they were stockpiling weapons and law enforcement were shot at and the nra had a very different reaction to that and that was the other thing that drew me into this study so it wasn't just flindell casteel murder but it was also the nra's silent response given what it had done at waco and ruby rich at ruby ridge. You had basically the right wing militia. That was all about arms and you had federal officers coming on a federal warrant for holding illegal guns and law enforcement were shot at right and at waco again you had law enforcement being shot at and the response from wayne lapierre of the nra was to call these federal officers.

Not only do we need to invest foreign police, but we need to completely dismantle the Minneapolis police Department. The Minneapolis police Department is rotten to the room defund. The police does not mean abolish the police. It means a dramatic reduction in the number of police in our poor communities. Police are terrorizing black and brown community. The evidence is clear across the country. Yeah, we don't have to kill the police off. We just have to mortally wound them that those were, of course, all Democrats, all expressing those views over the course of the last year and the appetite for defunding the police has not slowed down. Want to be really clear about this. The messaging around defunding the police has abated because they realized it doesn't test well in the polls. We talked to the focus groups and it turns out nobody likes this, least of all the communities where your supposedly helping things. Hey, we just wanna get rid of your cops. Is that okay with you? I'm sorry. We don't normally ask for permission. We just defund the cops and you live in your gated communities and everything's fine. So they've got this push to defund the police.

Police Shootings: The Data and the Damage Done
"It's been five years since the high profile shootings of several unarmed black teenagers and men which launched the black lives matter movement. Thousands of people protested saying cops a using unnecessary force. The death sparked national debate. About what exactly was going on in in police departments with some saying this is a systemic problem and other saying no that's not right. A recent Pew survey found that around around forty percent of the public and about two-thirds of offices interviewed thought that these deaths were just quote isolated incidents this whole anti-police rhetoric is based on a lie. There is no data. There's no research that proves any of that nonsense none but despite this police departments have been doing all kinds of things to respond to the deaths and the protests police departments are employing. A new tactic body mounted video camera. Sacramento Police Department has been doing implicit bias. Training officers and recruits are required to attend an eight hour implicit bias. Course course meanwhile it feels like we're still seeing a lot of black people being killed at the hands of police like just a few weeks ago. Brad Attach Yana. Jefferson was shot in her home in Texas. Jefferson had been playing video games with her eight year old nephew. She was gunned down right in front of him so today on the show. What can you research tell us about police shootings in the US? And what can police departments be doing to save. Lives do implicit bias. Training Body Cams actually help when it comes to police shootings there are a lot of opinions. But then there's science okay so when you want to know the science of what is happening with all these police shootings you have to know that. We don't have good data here as no official database that tallies all the people in the US who was shot and killed by police so without officials stats media organizations like The Washington Post have started counting. And here's what they found about a thousand people in the US a killed by police each year. Roughly half of those don't have a gun and while all white people do get killed by cops your two to three times more likely to be killed by police in the US. If you're black an every researcher that we spoke told us that this wasn't just on the cops so for example is difference is partly explained by the fact that because of the history of this country black people are more likely to live in places with gun violence and cops a more likely to be assigned to these neighborhoods. So when idea is that if a lot of cops are interacting and with more black people than white people in the rare times that cops do draw their weapons. There's a greater chance that the person on the other end of the barrel will be black eh but lots of people in the. US think that something else is going on here to racial bias or racism among cops ups. So how widespread is that what feels like a messy and politically charged. Question can actually be answered with science. Hi My name is Jennifer Eberhardt and I work at Stanford. University Jennifer is a professor of social psychology. The and in two thousand fourteen. She started working with the Oakland police. Department to analyze their data on stops and searches and she was basically asking the question. But when you look at the data cops stopping and searching more black people. She looked at more than twenty thousand stops from five hundred police officers and she said there was a clear pattern. They stopped way. More African Americans in the same was true for the searches and when they when when they did the searches like what did they find. Were black people like more likely to have weapons or drugs no no. They weren't in Oakland Oakland. Black men was searched four times more often than white men despite the fact they would know more likely to have weapons or drugs. The white guys a similar trend was found for Latinos. And this isn't just Oakland. One big study published just the analyzed.
