"This is the California report. I'm penny Nelson. San Francisco could be the first city in America to ban the use of facial recognition technology by police and other city agencies. The board of supervisors is scheduled to vote on the ordinance today as Rachel Miro reports from K Q E DS Silicon Valley desk government agencies across the country have been using facial recognition software for more than a decade despite studies that show higher error rates identifying people of color on official intelligence is making surveillance and monitoring of populations much cheaper and easier directs the partnership for a research outfit bringing together tech firms and civil society groups, he says, the technology is evolving, but the laws governing its use not so much using pre existing roles what we could end up with is actually a much more surveilled and controlled society than we had beforehand.

And so this is our opportunity to keep the genie bottle. San Francisco's police in sheriff's departments say they don't use the software yet the ordinance which would apply to all city departments is much broader than just the facial recognition ban. But surveillance software other than facial recognition could be allowed after publicly vetted policies created for its use for the California report. I'm Rachel myrow.

"I'm penny Nelson. A freelance journalist whose home and office were raided by the San Francisco police is threatening legal action against the department. If his belongings are not returned. And we now know judges who signed the warrants were aware of his job. According to a San Francisco supervisor police were investigating what they call and illegally leaked. Police report connected to the death of San Francisco public defender, Jeff dotty as QA dis Sonia Hudson reports journalists and first amendment advocates are sounding the alarm bell. San Francisco police officers raided Brian Carmody apartment and office on Friday with search warrants signed by state judges it was unlawful, and frankly pretty outrageous. That's David Snyder, executive director of the first amendment coalition. He says the raid violates a state law that bars law enforcement from using search warrants to obtain confidential sources, even if the source gave the journalists information that was. Obtained illegally both police and the judge who signed the warrants were aware of Carmody occupation. That's according to San Francisco. Supervisor Sandra fewer who says she spoke to the police chief Monday afternoon. Fewer says she believes the warrants were justified because as stringer Carmody sells video footage and information. I don't know that threshold of journalist because he doesn't really like reports. This isn't the first time something like this has happened in San Francisco in two thousand six freelancer Josh Wolff credentials as a journalist were questioned when he refused a federal subpoena Carmody was served with state warrants which worries wolf we have a lot more protections into the state contest, which actually makes me even more concerned that it's a state warrant in a statement. The SFP says the police report was illegally released, and they are committed to maintaining the public's trust by investigating the leak Adachi successor public defender, Manohar Rogers, says he's pleased police are investigating that. The report's release was wrong for the California report. I'm Sonia Hudson. And in other Legal News third. California court has found a connection between the weed killer roundup and cancer in Alameda County jury has awarded more than two billion dollars to an elderly couple who blames agribusiness giant Monsanto for their disease KiKi Dee science reporter, Molly Peterson has the story over more than thirty years Albert a Pilat and her husband battled weeds with a weapon, they sprayed everywhere. Round up the world's best known urbicide as we felt that it was incredibly safe to use. Now, the periods are both battling limb foam and experts. They've consulted say Roundup's active ingredient glyphosate may be to blame we wished that Monsanto had warned us ahead of time. And that there was something on the front of their label, but said danger may cause cancer Monsanto's parent company. Baird denies that. The weed killer is dangerous but jurors concluded that roundup carries a knowable risk. Risks to human health. They awarded the Pilate's fifty five million dollars in actual damages and another two billion dollars in punitive damages. Bayer calls that verdict excessive and unjustifiable experts say it's likely to be reduced but plaintiff's lawyer Brent Wizner says over thirteen thousand more lawsuits are looming. The writing is on the wall three juries have spoken. This was a statement. And I hope Monsanto's listening as with previous cases, the company says it will appeal for the California report I'm Molly Peterson. She ifting years. There's a runoff election today for the Los Angeles unified district five school board, though ninety percent of district five students are Latino both candidates in the race are white women. Jackie Goldberg, and Heather repenting rose to the top of the pool that included seven Latino hopefuls the winner, whoever it is will tip the demographics of the board to majority white for out of seven members will be Caucasian, the California report lily Jamali spoke with Kyle Stokes who covers education. For KPCC about the race. Tell me about district five L U S U district. Five is really weirdly shaped district that sort of has another northern half and a southern half. It kind of wraps around downtown, Los Angeles and south and east of downtown Los Angeles, it's mostly Latino working class to low income areas where the schools are almost entirely made up of non white students nine and ten students in the south art Latino on the northern half of the district, though is a much more, you know, gentrified or gentrifying areas sort of Tony neighborhoods like Los villas in eagle rock and silver. Like, if you're familiar with LA, you know, that those areas are much whiter than the city as a whole and that northern half is where most of the turn out in these races tends to come from even though this oddly shaped district was drawn this way in order to give nominally Latino candidate a better chance of winning. In a majority Latino district. I think a lot of people listening in the state are aware that Los Angeles unified teachers went on strike earlier this year, and there are questions about the financial ability to deliver on the promises made their charter schools have been a big part of that conversation and a big part of the conflict. How do they figure into the way that this seat? This race has played out. I think it's important to recognize the charter schools are part of the racial dynamics here as well. I think there are members of the community, including some Latino members of the district ride community who have looked at the candidate field and say that they don't really care as much about the race of the person who's running rather in favor of they are much more concerned about whether that candidate supports our poses charter schools and right now in Los Angeles. There's definitely a popular swell of opinion in favor of the teachers' union. All right. Thank you so much. You're welcome. That was the California report lily Jamali talking.

Well, the American Civil Liberties union, we'll sue to stop a decision by the US attorney general that allows for the indefinite detention of people seeking asylum in the US K Q E D, Julie small reports for more than a decade US immigration courts have allowed certain asylum seekers to ask a judge to release them on bond while they away to final decision on whether they can stay. They have to show that they have a credible fear. They'll be persecuted or tortured if they return to their home countries, and they must not be a threat or a flight risk in his decision, Tuesday, overturning the rule attorney general William Barr wrote that asylum seekers must be detained until their claims are decided that can take months even years.

You attorney league alert says a government report indicates there's a list of those children, or at least the raw data to make one. If that list exists or can be generated quickly that's a start. That's two months worth of children. And it's two months of children. We can help right away. US attorney Scott Stewart insists there's no list of separated kids and no easy. Anyway, to compile one welding on a Bill that would pave the way for more housing development near public transportation. Got a big end ovo from L as city council yesterday. It's a state Bill. So the city council does not have direct say over whether it passes but opposition from cities like Los Angeles helped kill the legislation in Sacramento last year. KCRW Zana Scott has more this measure Senate Bill fifty would override local zoning rules in areas. Close to major train and bus lines proposed by state Senator Scott Weiner from San Francisco, it would force cities to allow new apartment buildings near public transportation and jobcentres LA city councilman Paul Koretz who represents part of elis west side is leading the opposition to the Bill would allow five story buildings in the middle of single family neighborhoods with a goal of destroying those neighborhoods as the author Mr. Weiner has articulated Senator. Weiner says that restricting housing near public transit to single family homes, worsens, traffic and pollution, a lot of people packed the council chambers to speak for and against the Bill. Most of the criticisms focused on the Bill not doing enough to ensure affordable housing development while supporters said it would help address LA's housing shortage. The city council voted twelve two zero to oppose the Bill for the California report. I'm Anna, Scott in Los Angeles. Now, a company running dozens of assisted living homes across California is at the center of a federal lawsuit alleging misconduct and violations of the Americans with disabilities.

Claim attorney general embar order yesterday that could keep some asylum seekers detained while they wait for their cases to be heard a way that can last months or years Joel rose covers immigration joins us to talk about this. Joel. Hi, david. So what exactly is this order? Well, attorney general William bar is directing immigration judges not to issue bond to some of my. Who've sought asylum in the US business, potentially thousands and thousands of silence. Speakers will be stuck in detention until whenever there are heard in immigration court and right now, there's a huge backlog. So as you said, they are looking at in most cases years, so in terms of who this might apply to I mean, I know some people cross illegally and make an asylum claim we were meeting families in Texas who came and surrendered illegal port of entry. I mean, they were held a few days system is so overwhelmed right now, they were given a court date and released with within a few days with this. New order applied to those families. There are a couple of exceptions that this order likely would not apply to one of them is migrant families and children because there are strict limits on how long immigration authorities can attain children in particular also migrants who seek asylum legal ports of entry. That's a different process and not something that this decision will affect directly. You know? There are thousands of migrants arriving at the port every day and immigration. Authorities say system it's over wellm that you know, they are in many cases, just reported just releasing the migrants, which is I think you saw your down in Paso, but you know, in theory migrants who crossed the border illegally are detained or can't be detained by immigration authorities. And then if they pass the first hurdle of their asylum claim by showing a credible fear of persecution or torture back home, then they can ask immigration judge to release them on. And if the judge is is there's no reason to hold them the migrants can be released until they're full hearing, at least, that's how it works. Until now for the last decade, or so, but attorney general bars decision is overturned that precedent. Why is it his decision? If these are judges who are making decision to the attorney general have the power to tell judges, what to do, I guess 'immigration courts are not like criminal courts. They're part of the department of Justice. And so yes, he general can set legal precedent that immigration judges have to follow. And yet at the same time. This decision is likely to be challenged in court overwhelmingly likely I would say Michael tan is a lawyer with the ACLU immigrant's rights project. You can't lock people without giving them the basic hearing before judge where that does look at the person indeterminate they need to be locked up in the first place. When other immigrant rights groups will be challenging challenging the administration on this in court there already fighting court in another case about bond hearings for asylum-seekers in western Washington Seattle. So that's where this challenge is likely play out. Okay. So we might see a long legal process here legal debate over whether whether this new policies possible Joel rose covers immigration force. Joe? Thanks, always. Oh, you welcome. The president of France. Emmanuel Macron says he wants fire damage at the Notre Dame cathedral repaired within five years.

"And as the program continues here on kqed public radio the time, it's fifteen minutes before six this morning edition from NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning. Major league. Baseball officials know the game is a bit slow. The average contest lasted three hours and four minutes last season new rules for next season would cut down the number of pitcher changes commentator. Mike Pesca notes that could end a specialized baseball tradition. Wither the Lougee. It's an acronym. Stands for a lefty one out guy. A left handed pitcher brought in from the bullpen to face one usually left handed batter. That's because lefty pitchers performed better against lefty batters. Then the Lougee hits the showers or really, maybe just us. It's one of those body wipes. The job's not that taxing there are also rubies righty one out guys. But as with so much in public life. It would be false. To compare righties with lefties in baseball. It's much less common for a right hander to be used in such a specialized manner. Plus left-handers are a little nuts. Everyone knows that just like everyone knows redheads or fiery and Canadians or even keeled please don't bother to test the hypothesis. This is baseball. It's a lot easier. Just to go with what everyone knows the plan to cut down on how many times a manager can send a new pitcher will spell doom for the Lougee baseball is a game of tradition. Eliminating luby's next year is a case of conflicting traditions normally the league wouldn't metal in how managers used their bullpens on the other hand in recent years managers increasingly used one pitcher to record won out against one batter then sent in an entirely different pitcher to record the next out. This means a pitcher would be removed from the game. Pausing. The action left-hander would be called in from the pen. Pausing the action. He'd get. His eight warm up pitches. Pausing the action for enough time to ponder, why baseball is the only sport where substitutes get to stop the game and warm up on the field of play. The newly inserted left-handed pitcher might throw one pitch induce a pop up or a week groundout to second and be done. Now, here's how it works in real life will take you to game seven of the two thousand eleven World Series as announced on FOX. The cardinals starting pitcher has reached the seventh inning. And then give up ahead rocketed down into the corner. He's lifted for a story. Pitches later that Louis Arthur Rhodes gets his one out, and then he is replaced which brings us to cancel. It takes us. Delivered by the third pitcher in that one inning. All those pitcher substitutions just so that Lougee could get one guy out have chewed up nine minutes and eighteen seconds. That's why the Lougee will go the way of the woolly mammoth and the flip phone. Changes impossible. The game has changed in the past the spitball used to be allowed. Now, it's banned now as before this rule which threatens the lefty one out guy. So it was never legal for luby's to use luby's. Today's luby's say they will evolve that they will show they have what it takes to last an entire half inning. So maybe the Lougee will not die out. Maybe there will be an evolution from Lougee Chula to the left E three out guy. Whereas they may simply call him pitcher. Mike Pesca we brought them in for just that one commentary. And now, he's hitting the showers. He has the podcast called the the lewke. No, no. It's called the gist for slate. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm David Greene. Five forty nine now on this Wednesday morning and penny Nelson. We'll have the California report for us in just a moment. First Joe McConnell is here with a look at bay area. Traffic.
