"Emergency session of the Phoenix city council at nine o'clock this morning you gonna be following that yeah it's it's interesting because for whatever reason they didn't consult me before the meeting so I'm not no I think I'm pretty sure this mask thing is going to is going to pass I'm just certain about enforcement police is already over rocked are we really gonna sent police officers into cover these things yeah and as we heard from sal the CCO he's a little concerned about that as well and you know he was even in Vatican say we can all agree that we should be wearing masks when we can't distance and we're in public we agree on that but how do you put this burden on law enforcement and you really want to send the cops into enforce the stuff and into one of those types of situation right where you know people's patience our is at an end right and the yeah I know it one more reason why I would be very difficult to be a long night hours when office hello yes have a good weekend Jamie Hey you too it is a it is it's it's such a strange strange days were living in this us against them mentality at this morning it's I thank god it's Friday I was I've already I have a guest coming on at nine o'clock because it was Paul Lee and she is a doctor actually was at one time doctor a pain management doctor they did da da shots in my back for sciatica I have a bad blow back issues well I have a lot of issues that just happens to be one he could fix and stop nodding your head Steve it is a and he's coming on at nine o'clock he's a position I went to New York and work for three or four weeks treating patients for covert nineteen in the hospitals and has got a harrowing story of what happens when covert nineteen over runs a city and so I have been following the date on covert nineteen from the very beginning and I will tell you I have not picked a side I didn't think the government had a right to close down businesses ask people to do the right thing they generally do that was my difference but I complied with everything the governors asked us to do from the beginning and I would not going after the governor for being too little too late none of that everybody that wants to Monday morning quarterback and I was fair about it I even defended some of the things that the governor did in New York I have nothing in common with politically even after he called out Arizona after the debate cool that New York was covert nineteen doesn't know politics it doesn't know race it doesn't know gender it is a damaging virus and we can look at the numbers and realize when changes need to be made when you start saying we are going to send the law enforcement officers in to enforce this stuff I have a bigger issue and part of the problem is it makes it easier to do it another time and that's where the problem lies in not to mention law enforcement in Phoenix is already stretched very thin we are understaffed there are hundreds of openings just in the Phoenix police department alone and I think there's probably going to be more but you're going to now say and I you know okay guys a go and I disagree on some things politically but the mayor and the city council are going to agree on saying you should wear masks in public great but they're going to make it a police issue I honestly do you think nine one one calls using nine one one should be used for mass usage the answer is not a chance so there's not emergency numbers this is where I believe we are going to understand how understaffed the Phoenix police department is when you look at the mask issue itself when you see the numbers of people that will call and there's a lot of people out there that just do that what everybody talks about the parents of the world that's a new catch phrase the Karens these are the people that are reporting others to law enforcement so even if you use the non emergency number so Phoenix police department's radio system in the way they do things and dispatching calls if there is a crime in progress and it doesn't have to be a violent crime if there is an ongoing issue that needs to be addressed immediately the nine one one caller and the dispatcher dispatches and a tone goes out and it says emergency traffic that doesn't necessarily mean that a building burning down a bank is being robbed but they say emergency traffic and then they dispatch the call and it's could be a shoplifting in progress it could be a husband white flight wife fight in progress whatever it is it's happening right now that's a priority one call then there's priority two calls in priority three calls what level on those three is not wearing a mask going to be and I think it is lower than a level priority one call in the city of Phoenix good luck you are all about to see how understaffed Fenix PD is because you're going to call about somebody not wearing a mask and you're not going to see a cop for an hour you know why because they are busy chasing priority one calls there is no proactive collection say nine there is very limited proactive policing that's able to go on a couple of years ago is they re bid and what happens is cops bid to be the shift they want the precinct they want to work out of and a lot of that is done by seniority and during the re bid a couple of years ago the chief had to notify the city of Phoenix police department that a lot of you officers that are in specialty details now when I say specialty I mean investigating crimes whether it's property crime violent crime some of the others they were pulling cops out of

He go in their family when I was just eleven years. Old I never imagined will be treated like villains. Bringing drugs, children or forcibly separated from their practice down on sanctuary cities, bringing grime for a ban on all those long 'til suspend immigration over the corona by rapist. So. How did we get here? How did emigrants become the enemy? This is homeland insecurity it podcast from die says about the unwritten history of the HFS about. America lost its way. I'm your host eighty guns. In this podcast we'll go back to the very beginning, and how the mission of the H S win from fighting terrorists to something else. To keeping emigrants. At all costs. Subscribe to homeland insecurity wherever. You listen to podcasts. Visit Homeland Security PODCAST DOT COM So I WANNA make the connection because I you know I i. get what you're saying. It's very important, and and we've been very clear. You know black lives. Matter is black lives leading black voices amplifying. You know we're doing everything we can to be like. How does? How does How does this movement continue to stay elevated? But at the same time, just hearing what you're saying, right? And also, when you talk about police, because obviously police is not just Phoenix city police I mean there's so much police around us, and you are an enemy. You have become an enemy. Erica so how do we begin to make the connections and unpack? And how does your podcast wanted to throw so many questions at you and you can just go in and talk, but how does your podcast? Why do you think your podcast is so relevant now even more I think it is so I want to hear all up. Just it all out my friend. Definitely well, look, we ray now are able to have a much more clear. An open conversation about sixty matic systematic racism and white supremacy, and those are conversations that are really hard to how on a on a daily basis where a lot of people don't make the connection. So, what do you mean? Immigration has anything to do with criminal justice system. You know what it is a different entity than the police. Don't they do different things focus on different people in? It's always our job as as activists than. Organizers to really explain this this is how we works. You know this is not only how we works, but also this is where it comes from, and one of the big calls that we had just I think it was pretty big. With twenty twenty nineteen he was to abolish is and there was so much pushback you know like helping you. Abolish is like what's going to happen. Who GonNa Enforce this? It's a parallel that I'm seeing with people just really questioning cokie. You defend the police like what's going to happen where security gonNA know how security going to happen and. Continuous conversation of US having to explain that a lot of the systems are based on on white supremacy. Allow this system surveys on racism and the jobs that the police and the is Keri Al are basically rooted in that and so one not start looking into the root of that, and that's what the podcast does with the chest specifically.

"The Phoenix city councilman and he's upset because the mayor is making plans on how to deal with homelessness and India involves new beds and housing and some other things in the district that Michael Miller kowski represents so councilman Noah Caskey said he had been asked about this by other council members and said he was blindsided know anything about a press conference do you know anything about these plans and thought that he should have been consulted and I don't necessarily disagree with him I think that that is a in the way it should work we don't have a strong mayor system and without going into a lot of detail I I do think the right thing to do when a team effort is to at least consultancy this is what I want to talk about because something's happening right under your nose and you are kind of you are not you are not privy to that so that we can have a backstory here our reporter here K. T. R. news Taylor canter up was there and Michael Nowakowski they were you know he was trying to get into the room so he made his way into the room and the mayor laid out her plan for what the part of what was going to happen to kind of explain some things and then the mayor open this up for questions to the media the media was all there for the press conference and calcium mineral kowski spoke up first and said he had a question and and he had a statement to make in this is what the councilman said I would like to know before you go in front of the camera what a plan is and I like to be a part of that plan is I represent that can lead to more than five years and I don't think he's wrong this is his district that doesn't mean that anybody has to do anything but it is the right thing to do Seoul councilman Noah Caskey said he had reached out to the mayor a number of times he said I'll show you my phone records I left her a lengthy voicemail and she was dodging me and that they had run into each other in the elevator and he said but he had previously left messages because as the mayor to was very indignant that and so was our staff that the councilman was even in the room for this press conference and I'll tell you how that ended in a moment but at the end of the mayor's comments about the act after Michael accounts he made a statement there's a little bit you could feel the tension in this common appreciate your request from they delivered this morning in the elevator an hour ago so in other words he asked an hour ago to which Michael accounts you said absolutely not for a couple of days I've been reaching out I left a lengthy voice mails she's ducking me she's not so he didn't understand why this was happening but what did happen as a matter of fact this is Michael Nowakowski explaining that he didn't know anything about this press conference when you have a press conference and I start getting calls from my colleagues say Michael.

"Mean that that sickens me I mean if the Phoenix city council wants to pack that place with a bunch of activists maybe you guys should pack that place with people that are for you and for your side what do you think well let's keep in touch Gatos because you're gonna see a lot more of that I think that Tuesday's vote definitely woke a sleeping giant we've had nothing but an outpouring of support calls emails here at the office people that are actually willing to do something because they do understand that most people those yellow T. shirts that were standing up on Tuesday the other spouting lies you know they're saying well you know you guys killed you know my nephew whatever well that may be but let's look at what really happened because if we have any officers that are going to prison for motor from any of those incidents in twenty eighteen no our officers out there raping sexually sexually assaulting citizens no they're not you know don't get up there in lights but you know currently the mayor council just love to hear that stuff I mean they let it go on I tried to get up and talk to and I get cut off at the Mike two minutes but it everybody yell teacher got talk as long as they wanted to so it seems like you know we did have a chance to win from the get go London is joining us plea president Phoenix law enforcement association so it was mayor cake I a go her vote push this through do you think I A. goes anti cop well I I I I certainly don't fear procon she never comes up here and talk to us and you know you can talk a good game actions speak louder than words you can say you value all the officers that are out here doing the job and that are dying at that their spouses and families worry about him constantly it's easy to think you know I really value you what are you doing to show that you value us that remains to be seen you don't think she showed you anything that says I value the work that the police officers do in Phoenix do you no absolutely not absolutely not no I don't you know let me jump to the other side because I think this is a joke and I think the model that they picked it just it feels like this is nothing but activists but at the same time I understand where the public's coming from they feel like there's no transparency part of that is the way that that it feels like there's always the cops police in the cops they get to do the investigation bread how do you bridge that gap to the public where it makes it feel like that there is more transparency you show that there's more transparency yeah because sometimes I think everything should be released from the minute something happens if you look at the established process we have now we have two civilian said on our disciplinary review board we have three to sit on our use of force support they were able to answer those questions currently have been forever I've been on twenty four years it's been that way and it works it has worked people that that violates the public trust they don't remain employed with the Phoenix police department so that that just kind of shows that the entirety of the Sikh community doesn't know how we already operate because no one wants to go out there and tell them you know we can talk about it at your end this was someone's going to call for wired nearly because we are sworn peace officer that is what we're up against but we already have processes that would that work that work well so there's no need to reinvent the wheel we didn't suggested that maybe some of these council people that don't understand don't take the time to actually understand what goes on use it on one of these review boards no one's going to tell you know using your elected you can go in there and see how it works but I don't think anyone has done that yet and it probably won't are you worried like I think a lot of people are that instead of trying to find unbiased people to put on these boards now that Garcia has already set up that it's going to be nothing but community activists that are going to say that everything every piece of training everything you guys do is racist is over the top festive yep well let's look around the country where they have these really restrictive boards I don't see words helps you know we're still talking about Seattle's we're still talking about Portland in Albuquerque these things just don't seem to work they have an agenda they want to run a parallel investigation is obviously going to be pointed towards whatever they want and what scares me a bit this model being was voted on it's purely a framework there's no detail to it at all all these legal questions that are going to rise course if you ask mostly yeah we have lawyers look at it or you know everything well I don't think you did and why didn't you present everything if you've already got it figured out how come you didn't present everything the I. evil Phoenix city council they created a a civilian review board for the Phoenix police department and we're I. chatting with brit London a plea president police law enforcement sociais Asian I want to know how you believe the cops are going to react to this our friend Brandon Tatum who was a former Tucson cop told us this yesterday well it makes you not want to do your job you want to go out of the practice one to throw us off the street I'm telling you when when these city council members do this what do you do you sit in a car so somebody calls you they only call you to respond because they don't pay you to be corrected so you sit around and wait for a call to come out and you give people lackluster service that's what happens because tomorrow is down you don't have the energy you don't have the passion anymore you don't want to be a cop anymore but you need a job to preach a family trip to you think that the Phoenix police department officers would think about doing the bare minimum here because their morale is down the passion level is down there's a lot of truth into what I what I just heard him say our morale is already kind of low here we've been working with last person power for ever the committee just continues to grow like any profession or anything you're doing you're doing the best that you can do and then you have people that are telling you or or creating a narrative about youth job you do the people you associate with that work and it's not true you know how does that make you feel and of course our message here at the Phoenix law enforcement association that we will continue to protect the citizens of Phoenix like we always hands and yet you know I but I I can't speak for every individual is like you know what how to come to put my neck out today because I might get fired for nothing or I might be I come of political pawn and if you know anything about chess you know pondered force was to go away to protect queen and we've already had that happen to a couple of our members definitely said it's going to affect the effective service your hybrid London thank you for joining us Phoenix law enforcement association Pritchett they're ticked off they should be ticked off guard because Garcia is a clown he packed the room with activists I think one thing I hope that critical way is he's got to do the same thing gotta fight fire with fire you've got a pack that council meeting those boring awful council meetings with a bunch of pro cops pro cop people because some you can't just have this huge a rupture of cheering like at a ball game when you hit cops hard and it was a it was a rabbit punch that they got earlier this week yeah yeah well I just think that the way it was it was jammed down there and I here's a and the other thing I mean let's take away whether you believe in it you don't believe it you hated the whatever it is I hate it also the fact that it doesn't seem to be gathering fully formed planets put together in such a way that you know the intricacies of something it's just like we're gonna try it maybe it works maybe it doesn't this is going to be the cost and away we go without any real road map of how we're going to this is going to play itself out which I also think it's very unnerving coming up next the middle school principal that is telling the girls at the school you are not allowed to say no to a boy it's the greatest chat show yes some of like street lights three sh sh sh I've had so many friends of mine say how real is live stream is it it's it's it's they're amazing they're incredible my dream is one of the most amazing companies and if you were sitting there and you've got tons of credit card debt get away from that stuff consolidate with lights and get away from that expensive all of that and it is expensive you know that twenty plus percent on average is what people are paying how about this it's so.

"Between Phoenix police and a valley family continues this time the drama was at the Phoenix city council. Millions, of course, have seen a video of an encounter between Phoenix police officers and the valley family it spurred apologies from the Phoenix mayor and chief of police over the conduct of the officers. KTAR reporter Peter say more joins us now. Peter, you were at the Phoenix city council yesterday for what was supposed to be a Phoenix city council meeting on what on a lot of things. It was a regular meeting, but of course, on the budget because we're less than ten days or actually are ten days away from the end of the current fiscal year. New one begins, July first so budget items are coming up, including for the police department seven hundred twenty one million dollars. That was all regularly scheduled. So what did this meeting turn into though, because it wasn't nice and calm? Instead, we heard a lot of this going on. I had to say something because I'm tired. I have to listen to this. I'm gonna say there you go shouting down that. That I want the public to see this never allow anyone else to speak. I got it. Alejandra will be followed by Kerry, Waldinger, then Peter, we'll speak. So what the heck was going on there, though. Because that doesn't sound like it was about the Phoenix police and seven hundred twenty million dollars for a budget though. So the protesters with Aaron action and others with them came into the meeting to take advantage of the budget item to talk about it to talk about basically police brutality, as they allege and demanding that the city council through the city manager through the chief of police fire the two officers caught on the video with Dr on aims at his family. So you can follow that chain, right there. They again took advantage of a regular agenda, item and turn it into a protest via public comment. Okay. So they were supposed to look at the budget, you had these protests. You have these comments, did they enter into deciding to fire the officers or did they deal with the budget. What exactly ended up as the result? So they did nothing with the officers following the. The announcement at the Tuesday listening session at the pilgrim's rest Baptist church that the mayor and the chief and others with them, we'll review the recommendations of the community over the next thirty days and get back to the community. So then the council after all that discussion after all the public comment voted in favor of the budget, seven hundred twenty one million dollars for the police specifically. And of course, other agencies were involved in those budget line items or the agenda line items. It was business as usual. It was a seven to two vote, I should add for the approval of the police budget and all the other budgets that were up for vote that day. All right. So we heard a clip of at least set. Well several voices not very happy. Did the city council interact with the public at all with these comments? I mean they were obviously, they're commenting on the incident that happened with the police to council ask the public, any questions, did they make any comments about it. I mean they stuck to the budget item. They didn't wanna talk about or they didn't talk about the, the, the outside angle of the police brutality or alleged. It seemed like they were even listening to the people. A good question. I mean sell the CEO was listening. He certainly responded as we just heard that clip a few minutes ago, whether they were listening or not that has to acknowledge that, but I should point out that one of the council members Carlos Garcia, one of the newest members on the council, just a few months was wearing t shirt that said and police brutality. He's a he has a career in activism here in the valley, and he showed his support in essence for the protesters by wearing that shirt. Well, maybe not so much the protesters, but at least for, you know, making a statement saying that's exactly right. He lets his tee-shirt do the talking, and yet he voted in favor of the budget. He was one of the seven that said, yes. And. Externally the city council members focus on the issue at hand which was the budget. And of course, they got an earful about police brutality, and everything related to that talking with our terrific KTAR news reporter Peter Seymour. He was down at a Phoenix city council meeting that devolved into fun times. I would say more than fun times. I would say at times, chaotic comments shouting back and forth between city council members and the audience calls for order, Peter these comments from people in the audience, how many of them, would you say were polite appropriate? And how many of them, would you characterize as something that we had to have a call for order that we're just totally off? They can use the beep. But yeah. I would say most of the comments, you could say did not result in a shouting, match or vitriol or anything like that. More productive than they were. They were productive. They were angry spectacle, they were, I guess you can say it that way to the people who are there speaking on the budget weren't there about the budget. They were there to be angry and to use this avenue to address their city council members on record about this topic. No one had to be escorted from the room to my to my understanding. That's a positive. It was. Yeah. And, you know, and same thing was the that happened at the pilgrim's rest Baptist church on Tuesday, Knowle's forced out. We know all about what happened there. So the city council meeting was respectful. Hopefully it was productive and that the comments were taken seriously. But other than that, you know, the council of business at hand and they went right about it. As soon as the protesters were done speaking on public comment, but two nights ago you mentioned that community meeting that took place at the at the church. I would characterize that as more of an open forum, where comments could be welcome on anything and everything regarding Phoenix. Police yesterday was specifically about the Phoenix city council. There's no way that they could have said, hey, if your comments about this, you're going to have to wait. This is not the time and place for that comment. You mentioned nobody got kicked out, but at the same time the purpose of the meeting was to vote on this budget, and all these people show up to talk about another issue. Nobody can sit there and call this to order and say, you know what if you're not here to talk about the budget, we're going to have to move on. Well, they could have said that, but then the protesters could come right back and said, I'm not advocating for either side, by the way, we are talking about the budget seven or twenty million dollars house. Being spent, or is it going toward anti-bias training is going to this? And how come we're paying for officers who were always in trouble. You know, in the eyes of the community and the police brutality, so they were able to make that they make that connection. And that's why the city council didn't stop them unless they felt that the comments were going on too long. They had a two minute. Limit technically speaking. It wasn't always enforced. But that's about the the best that the council had at the disposal, I have been on a city board before. And there's a gen does that you have to follow, and they send information to each one of the members so they had all the information about the budget, they I would say they were ninety nine percent decided in their mind how they were going to vote, and they can't change the agenda at the last minute, they can't turn around and adds something on there, because that's not fair to the rest of the public that didn't receive notice about the agenda item. So I think just from being on a board before the city council did the right thing and allowing the public to speak. And and it. I think it took it took the animosity level down. Maybe just just a little bit because people were allowed to at least say something right? But it had nothing to do with the budget, and so they did exactly what their agenda told them they had to do. And what the rules of the city meetings dictate we're talking with KTAR reporter, Peter, same more. He was at a Phoenix city council meeting, where they were supposed to, and they did end up voting to approve a seven hundred twenty one million dollar budget for the Phoenix police, and I guess what surprises me, Monica is several of these city council members have said that they were unhappy with the police only sell Decio has really come out in favor of the police off of the city council. And yet they voted to approve this budget seven to two. So it seems like a lot of them are kind of two faced in how they approached the issue. I think they're a little bit of different issues though, Joe because it's this is one issue that's going on the brutality. There's been a lot of. Incidents. But we're specifically talking about one incident recently. They can't turn around and not approve a budget for everything else at the police need. I can understand them wanting to talk about the issues, but you have to have a budget, and like Peter said, the, the it ends June thirtieth. Right. So this starts to July first, so they really didn't have a choice. I think what they could have done. It's talked about this a lot before the final budget came to them. And now they can continue to work towards changing something afterwards. Also, the, the city budget has been on display online for several months. So, of course, everyone had the opportunity to go. Look at this bet everybody did. Yeah, I was first in line. Let me tell you, Peter, what's coming up today for you so today, just a few minutes from now, I'm going to watch a display or a demonstration on a body camera videos with Phoenix police department and the cameras that. I'll have they're going be expediting. The order of more cameras. They have six hundred eighteen so far. This is what sergeant Tommy Thompson tells us, of course, more on the way Jerry Williams, the chief is announced that more cameras are on the way. Anyway scheduled for August. We'll get an update on that today. Maybe ask about some of the procedures and protocols using the cameras and just pose all sorts of questions to sergeant Thompson, and see what he's going to tell us see if anything has changed in light of all the police brutality allegations over the last several weeks, any protests planned from any of these activists groups, Jared Maupin, the Representative for the Ames family says protests plans are in the works. And as soon as they're confirmed, he'll be announcing them, and we'll certainly be on top of them. Peter will keep our eyes on it. Thank you very much. Thank you. Good to be with you. You know, another young African American man says that the Phoenix Cup from the viral video that we've all seen or you've probably seen attacked him. We'll get into that more at three o'clock and give you the details on that, but coming up next. Did you know that dad's go on vacation and mom's take trips? We'll explain what that means next..

"This isn't like the Phoenix city council meeting where people were talking about the Suns arena. Really in all honesty in the big picture. How important is the sun's arena getting refurbished in the great scheme of things not really not really a big deal. Right. But p not compared to that. But people did get loose and got it. Got you right, then yelled at in Tempe. The people that were protesting said a Tempe. Police officer never should have shot and killed a fourteen year old team. Right. And this is a big deal. You've got a kid who is dead. And you've got a cop who either thought he did the right thing. Or right now is saying I wish I hadn't done it. Or I don't know. Right. So a lot of people were angry, and there was no control over the microphone. I think the Tempe city council did not start with the fourteen year old boy who was killed and that angered people because you know, if you're going there to protest this one incident, and it's a big one this one story this one. The death of a kid. I mean, that's a big deal. You don't want it on the docket? That's number twenty one or fifty it should be number one in Tempe didn't start with it. And you know, what the people let them have it. And they said, no, no, this is what we're starting with one person said this is our meeting, and you know, what the right? Yeah. Right. But in my situation, I think there's nothing more important to talk about. But he doesn't want to get anything done or accomplished. You can't start out with this. Because nothing you're going to be there all night and not getting anything done. So I understood why they did it out of order. I disagree because I think that's how you get it started. I think you can't start at that way. Because you're not going to get anything the rest of the docket done that. And that's okay. With me if he asked me that's fine with me. I would if it were me and I wanted to go down to this. And I wanted to protest and they don't want to start with it. I go croquet. And then you know, what I would do. I would then they would bring this story up. Didn't it's not even a story. The death of a kid, right? You gotta bring that up. I if you don't I would I would be hollering to all right? Here's here's the here's what I don't want to see happen because I agree that if you want to protest protest, it's horrible. The death of a kid is horrible. I get it because you can yell and scream and then talk, and that's that's part of what they did. But I would I don't want to see this escalate to all Tempe. Cops law enforcement is bad which has happened before with other situations. Other people being shot shot that you then extrapolate that all cops would have done this or all of the insert the whatever, you know, police department. You wanna talk about are like this. It's not true. Okay. It's not true. Do you wish it didn't happen? Absolutely. Does it happen? Yes. And his Brandon Tatum who's the former Tucson police officer. We've talked to him a number of times you talked to him earlier today as he said let the process play out let the investigation happen. Let the discipline happen. If there is any maybe they fire this police officer who knows but let it play out. Let's not jump to the conclusion that every ten P cop wants to kill somebody. Because that is just not true. Yeah. I mean, the fourteen year old teen. I mean, I wish it didn't go down this way. But he's not completely innocent either. But he didn't deserve to lose his life. But still he's not completely innocent. What's a fourteen year old boy doing trying to steal stuff out of a car, and then you run, and when you run things go bad, and I'm not saying that he deserved to get shot because every police officer we've talked to said the officer made a mistake you shouldn't have shot the kid, but the the the teens shouldn't have been in that spot either. But it doesn't mean that he. Served to get killed. I mean, that's that's crazy thinking, but I mean, this is this cop was highly trained you went to war..

"Five people are dead police and see bring arrest of the twenty one year old suspect, but have not yet said what is motive was President Trump says after being uninvited to the house chamber to give the state of the union address? He's postponing this speech until after the partial shutdown ends. You're never more than fifteen minutes away. From today's top stories on Arizona's news station. KTAR news. KTAR in-depth. So we weren't expecting any surprises during the Phoenix city council meeting yesterday, you know, councilman sell the CEO who was a a no vote one of two no votes on the Phoenix city council for this arena. Deal told us yesterday on Arizona's morning news that he thought was going to pass and it passed by the margin. He predicted here on the air. But there was something very surprising yesterday at the Phoenix city council meeting. Let's give you a background here for last. We heard from Mary rose Wilcox. She lost the democratic nomination for congress to Ruben Gallego. But once upon a time, she was on the Phoenix city council. In fact, she was on it when the funding for the Phoenix Suns arena was I approve and she spoke yesterday in favor of this deal. We felt we needed to jump start downtown. So I asked you to keep the promise of the council voted on this and renovate this building with this tax. I both. Remember, jaime. She went onto the miracle accounting board a supervise right? Yeah. And in one thousand nine hundred seven she voted for the sales tax to build the baseball stadium. This is after voters had voted it down. Right. And that was the controversy. Right. Yes. So a lot of people were not in favor of a baseball stadium paid for at least in part by taxpayers. So that was a big controversy back then. But someone else who spoke yesterday at the Phoenix city council meeting was a man by the name of Larry naming he was called to the microphone by interim mayor fellow Williams who did not seem to recognize. This guy's name on August thirteenth. Nineteen ninety seven. I walked into the miracle county board of supervisors auditorium and shot Mary rose Wilcox over the baseball stadium tax matter. Are you kidding me? I think a lot of people were first off like that guys out of prison. But yeah, he serve. Twelve years in prison for shooting Mary rose Wilcox because he's saying this as a threat like watch out. That's what people are wondering. Well, what he said next. I think some people definitely took as a threat. He said saying yes to the arena deal would be akin to what he did you? Go ahead and pass it you're crossing the line. It's equivalent to a bloody act of violence against the public. All un. Believable. So. Yeah. And yesterday people were just like they couldn't believe this guy showed up and said what he said. And then what he said afterwards. He was mixing it up with reporters. The first voice you'll hear here is is Bram Resnick from channel twelve but there's a whole bunch of reporters that talk to Larry name after this this meeting, your comedy your comments today perceived as a threat against Mary rose Wilcox debt, you media people. We talk about that's nonsense is that nonsense. All I did was up there. Talk about the matter. All I said was. Yeah. Yeah. I'd say she deserved. I say I have no regrets over what I did. That's what it's saying, man. Trying to shoot Mary. Absolutely not. No, no, no. No. No. No. No, no. Reason I shot her in the buttocks. Tried to kill her deliberately shot her in the buddy, you said at the time he tried to kill her. I said it would have been. Okay. Wow. And that guy is walking around walking amongst us. I know right. Hopefully, he's not breaking the law as a as someone who is a convicted felon. He is not allowed legally to own a firearm or possess a firearm, and hopefully he's following the law because man, you know, I've never been a big Mary rose Wilcox fan. I really have never been won. But she did not deserve to be. Nobody deserves to be shot when they're doing. Maybe maybe maybe there was something in her mind other than the public's best interests. But still, you know, just serving the public and trying to to do the right thing. Most of the time people don't deserve to be shot for something like that. And for this guy to show up. Unbelievable.

"News on ninety two three FM. Get some perspective Bruce St James and Pamela Hughes. And I think we need perspective perspective on the Suns arena. And then apparently needing some two hundred and thirty million dollars in renovations of which Phoenix tax payers would foot the Bill for about one hundred and fifty million of it. That's the plan and last week here on this show, Bruce, and I spoke to sell the who is opposed to the current deal. Here's a little bit about what Sal had to say the repairs need to be strictly function what they need to be strictly focused on the infrastructure needs that we need to be doing. And I just don't believe that the current agreement does all the things that needs to do. So I'm a no vote on it until we're willing to make it a better deal. So is it a better deal? I've got Steve Irvin. Who is here with me from ABC fifteen who I know you guys have been spending. A lot of time energy focus on this story because it's one that does impact the tax payers a Phoenix considerably. So we also wanted to talk Steve to somebody on the city council who appears to be in favor of this measure. So joining us right now on the KTAR news maker line is Laura Pastore. She is Phoenix city councilwoman. Good morning to you can morning. Let's just start things off right out of the gate. Are you currently a yes? Vote on the situation in the proposal as it stands right now. Well, actually, at this moment there there are many different options that are happening. And what I'm doing is looking at ABM, and what's the best option for the city of Phoenix and really the state in the long run. So it's a very fluid situation. And I cannot tell you, yes. Or no vote. What would be the best situation for you? You say you're looking at ABMC opinion. What would be? A yes vote. What gets me to the? Yes, vote is to know that the city of Phoenix and the county and the state will can generate revenue that goes back into all our general funds, which provides dollars for public safety homelessness for our parks, and the streets are infrastructure all of that that goes back into our system. So that would be the best option you're talking about two different types of funds here. I mean, the money that we're looking to to use for this particular deal comes out of a tax on hotel, rooms and rental cars, generally paid by people out of town could money even be used for some of the things that you're talking about at this moment. No because in the in the nineteen eighties. They were pretty smart and building the sports facility fund, and that is to be used on the sports facility which pay for. Right now twenty eighteen renovations for the Maryvale baseball park the downtown bioscience campus, and some of our police and security in the downtown area and tourism promotion, if you can't use this money for anything other than some of these renovations. How how do you get to the point where we're weighing priorities on some of these other issues like homelessness that you're talking about? Because what right now with the Rena does and all the businesses around the arena that generates thirteen million dollars annually, and that thirteen million dollars then goes back into our general fund, which then I have the authority along with other council members to direct those dollars to public safety infrastructure, homelessness streets, all of that. So councilman runs the city council has store what I'm hearing. You essentially say is that it would be. The economic revenue from the businesses around the arena that you're looking at to see if it would sustain putting additional money into those programs in those areas for which you named earlier is that right? Correct. Does the have you gotten that kind of information yet because I know that there have been these hearings you we've finally had hearings for the public to come out in chime in on this because it appeared as though the city council was just going to vote on this without any public input. Now you've gotten some public input. That's great. It seems as though the public perception on this is changing a bit. But what I'm hearing. You say is your vote in what you want out of the deal is changing as well. Correct. So we did an economic impact. And so what I'm looking at is the economic impact on the city of Phoenix in downtown. And it's also I just wanted to remind you iterative that it's not just the city of Phoenix. It's the county and the state that also receive revenues, so it's a hundred eighty two million of direct spending from hotel, tickets foods, drank and rate, retail taxes from the utilities, you know, commercial leases everything all of that comes into play. And then there's one hundred fifty three million of indirect and an indirect and have a job impacts where where where it servers restaurants hotels. Yeah. So this all of this. This decision is going to make a huge impact and have a ripple effect on our economic impact. The lens that I look at. I view it in that lens, and how on how it it's very important for us. I think some people might have an issue with the way this was handled because the regionally this was handled is we're going to vote on this. And there weren't many public hearings Republic meetings scheduled did did the city pooch this in the in the beginning by not going to people in at least trying to explain the the parameters of the deal. So I kind of chuckle at this because ever since I entered office in twenty fourteen. The this conversation has always been had with former mayor Stanton and having the conversation of what we're gonna do for the future. What downtown's going to look like sitting on the downtown economic development committee. So this conversation has been ongoing the situation that we're in. And and I look at it as it's been passed every year instead of us taking a solid look and looking at the impact of our arena and looking at the possibility of the sons leaving we're now kind of the final hour, and we're this was forced upon marital the Williams, and I'm giving her kudos for taking it on. And looking at it and making sure that we have a dialogue regarding the arena, Mississippi wind up paying this money. Anyway, the city owns the Rena we've got all of these infrastructure improvements, electrical in the cost of those even if it's just uses a concert and entertainment value, venue, still one hundred twenty to one hundred and eighty million dollars. So does this become a moot point because we're gonna pay the money any way one way or another? We will pay the money one way or the other. So either we. Have a tenant or the possibility of we don't have a tenant than we have to find an operator to operate the venue. We still have to bring it up to scale and modernize it. So that concerts like the Rolling Stones Taylor swift WWE looks at us and comes to our city downtown and help us generate the revenue that is needed. We will have to do this Phoenix city councilwoman, Laura Pastora. Thank you so much for joining us. We know that this discussion is going to be ongoing. We know that as people learned a little bit more about where the the tax money would come from. When.

And nobody I can't remember anybody from the governor's office ever contacted me on that stadium whatsoever. At all. And we all know everybody loves sport know, that it makes a vibrant downtown. Jerry Colangelo was a master. Yes. It really changed the footprint down there. And it course, it was that all those businesses down there that count on it just like football stadium and all of them, and they create jobs if the money back into the economy, but it's gotta be a fair deal for the tax payers. Now, I know that taxpayers some of them don't believe a I've heard at my clear that NATO want you pay for the sports arena because people are making tons of money. They're paying their players money that a lotta people anything out to and that it should be a fair deal. And I think that if they would wait maybe with the council account, so they can. Hold with sponsor ball. Maybe they could get a better deal. I don't think it sounds like a very good deal. I don't have all the details. I didn't want to call out anybody. But I think that they might be able to do a better deal. We're chatting with former Arizona governor. Jan brewer we do it every Wednesday at three oh, five MAC and Gaydos, political insider go to let's go to the president here. What did you see what happened in the Oval Office yesterday? No, not at all. Or any news about Trump yesterday in the Oval Office had Trump wanting his wall, the Democrats wanting to not fund the wall that kind of thing. Well, it turned into the Mike Tyson versus what Vander Holyfield turn into a big fight. Here's a clip if we don't get what we want one way or the other whether it's through you throw a military through anything you want to call. I will shut down the guy. Okay. I am proud to shut down the government for border security. Check the last time you shut it down. It didn't work. I will take the mantle of shutting down. All right. So you have Nancy Pelosi sitting there, you have Chuck Schumer sitting there you've got Mike Pence sitting there he looked like a weekend at Bernie's. He didn't move a muscle. And then you had Trump just I think Trump duped them into coming into the Oval Office. And he kind of sabotage demeanor is like a lion at dot com. Have you ever been to the Oval Office? There's no way they were duped in all there. They were all situated the press. Hundreds of them right at it. Looked like hundreds of them. They knew they were walking in there. That was going to be open. I my opinion. I don't know that for a fact into the Oval Office. It was it wasn't the books scheduled as a photo op. It was only supposed to last a couple of minutes. But I like I like though governor that he did dress them down because Trump's only been there two years. These other two hacks have been there forever and not gotten anything done. And I would've put Paul Ryan on that couch, and I would have put Mitch McConnell on that couch to I actually liked the Trump dress them both down publicly. I thought that was pretty good. I think the dialogue was very very constructive. You know, and this is something that he has ran on the public. I think that you know, they wanted by fifty eight percent they want the border secured, and they want the wall and he put his foot down. And I think he only zone I do made it very clear, and I believe better believe it. I think he will set down the government following that line. Then if he does shut down the government will. So it be worth it to get the wall. Do you think the means outweighs or the ends outweigh the means here or is this Trump just being Trump throwing stuff threatening against the wall throwing stuff against the wall threatening. Then they'll come up with a compromise down the road. I think the democrat Senator get their act together, they have certainly back policies that have created that for the crisis and in two thousand six well, Pelosi and Schumer and company voted for the what was it called. The act. It was I forget even the secure fences act. Okay. They voted for and now, you know, pushed back push back because they wanna look big and dad, and you know, they're out there protecting not Americans they policy talks about the American people. And you know, what the American people do American people. And then they're out there defending all these people come in and across our border. I mean, you know, the policies that they have brought forth at just been a disaster. But as far as the money goes, I think that they have met their match. I think he was shut it. Yeah. I think he will get his money. I mean, my gosh, the Democrats gave Iran I'm much hundred and fifty million dollars in the middle of the night on the plate. By million compared to other cities. To build insecure our border. All right. A piece of our conversation from earlier today back Gaydos, political insider, former Arizona governor Jan brewer if you want to hear more of that checkout podcast, so you have to do a sex podcast four one one nine two three and be a part of that.
