"Had. I think it was. I'm pretty sure it was police chief Cary Williams. I've heard her say it so many times. Um Jerry Williams has said this more often than anyone else's. You don't build related. I'm paraphrasing. You don't build relationships in a crisis. You lean on them. You build relationships when times were good, and Phoenix has done a good job with that. That's why Phoenix has been able to work with the community. When things have happened to a certain degree. It doesn't mean it's perfect. It doesn't mean that there's not problems. But it's better than most major cities. If you want a community Where the police have a reporter relationship. You need proactive policing. You need a police force that is in the community and they're working to stop crimes before they happen, prevent crime from happening. Toe work inside those communities with young people. So there's already a report between young people in the police that they don't only see them when lights and sirens air going. That's how you build a report when a police officer has a time when when he or she has the time. To invest in those community members. That makes the difference. And if you take more cops away, the job just gets harder. It's punitive and it's cutting off your nose despite your face. I've given this statistic before, and it bears repeating. The city of Phoenix is bigger and landmass and population than the city of Philadelphia. We have surpassed Philadelphia and population We were always bigger than them in landmass. And The Phoenix Police Department is about 50% the size of the Philadelphia Police Department. 50%. And numbers are not the only thing to a solution. But you have to have AH, fully staffed Police Department One example. I don't know where it's falling right now. This but goes back when I first moved here because I had my vehicle stolen. When I first came to Arizona, I had the same vehicle stolen twice in a year and a half from the same parking spot in my apartment, and they found my vehicle in the same apartment complex and Douglas, Arizona, both times. And the Phoenix The city of Phoenix was like number one in the country and automobile theft. And then the auto theft task force in the city of Phoenix went to work and through some legislative changes and a lot of hard work and proactive policing. A few years later, the city of Phoenix wasn't even the top 50 and auto theft. That's proactive policing. We don't have that ability in the city of Phoenix right now because they are reactive force because they don't have numbers. So if the goal for everybody is a great relationship with the community in the cops, then you've got to do what's necessary to make it happen, not punish the cops by make less of them. You put more cops on the street. You do a better job of training them, And then they develop a report in the community how it works. Coming up in a few moments. If you're at least 65, you're gonna be eligible fairly soon to get the vaccine, But we'll tell you where it's some people will not And will do. Did you hear this? All of that's coming up in the next hour of the show, so make sure you stick around for it. Sanderson. Ford has been in this community for a long time.

"Shark Alley. Ventnor reports on breaking news for Katya are and on matters of public safety, and that includes reporting on those who protect us while doing their public safety jobs, law enforcement officers and firefighters and boy Ali. You had all that wrapped up in one particular story, a very tragic story that as everything did this year, had the underpinnings of the covert pandemic underneath it. I'd like to go back to Sunday March 29th. This is an especially tough day for the Phoenix Police Department. I will never forget that I woz at home. It was a Sunday evening I had just been essentially sent home toe work during the cove in 19 pandemic, and within a matter of minutes, I had both my work phone and my personal phone, blowing up with text messages, saying Have you heard about the three Phoenix police officers that have been shot and it just went from the afternoon to essentially almost midnight. I did not stop texting sources within the city of Phoenix, and it was just constant. This. This was the death of Commander Carmichael, who by the way shows even though he had a link Lee career with the Phoenix Police Department to be a street cop for years, and that's that's how he died. It was an intense situation and unfolded in a matter of hours after there was an active situation at a home near 55th Avenue and Pinnacle Peak, and it was a barricade situation they were trying to get. Ah, young man out of his house, who had a domestic dispute with his roommates and commander car. Nickel was there with two younger police officers newer to the field and, unfortunately just unraveled badly, and he lost his life that night into other Young officers were also shot. Yeah, yeah, Just absolutely tragic. When you see a cop it that many years. I mean, he was headed towards retirement very, very soon to see a cop like that lose his life because he was going in to protect the public and and actually protect some of those younger officers. You know, back when I was a reporter, I remember the toughest stories to cover. Where the deaths of and the funerals of public service professionals because seeing their family and their friends dealing with this loss is always super tough, but you talk directly to Commander Car Nichols family afterwards. That's correct. Obviously months had passed and it was in May that it was national Police week and there was a ton of attention on Commander car Nichols family not only because of his line of duty death, but because he didn't get that routine line of duty Death service because of the pandemic, So they had a closed funeral and it was very small and after months had gone by, I reached out to his family and his wife and and a couple of his daughters were nice enough to allow me into their home. Sit down and learn more about him. Not just about the 31 years that he had on the department, but he was a 56 year old man. He was married for nearly 30 years, and he was a grandpa and he had so much more under his name than just a commander, and it was incredible toe. Learn about him. It was incredible to sit down at his kitchen table and see his Chair empty but a sticky note on it that his family wrote. Jesus is here. It was incredible to hear about him and his wife's marriage. She told me that they had just they met real early on in their life at church, and she just knew she couldn't live without him. But it was incredible to hear how they dated. But as soon as he went into the police academy, everything changed and she told me this When we got married, I had to think about This season, the academy whether I could do this or not, and I decided it wasn't worth having him in my life, So I decided I'm just gonna do it. I need to do throughout life to be a police officer's wife. And it was pretty. It was an emotional interview. That's for sure I can't can't imagine. I mean, she's basically saying I had to think twice about whether or not I wanted this life because of something tragic could happen, and that's exactly what came to pass that It's so hard to listen to. Aly. Wow. 2020 was just absolutely tough year for law enforcement as a whole. I mean, you had the protest the police had to show up to to help maintain order. Those were protest directed right at law enforcement. I wanted to talk about a particular Sunday night. The last night of May. The first night of the statewide curfew enacted by Governor Do see toe stop violence and looting that it occurred in a couple of other protests were talking with key to our news Reporter Alley better You were there, covering a protest in downtown Phoenix that very night. What was that? Like? It was unlike anything I've ever experienced. And not only was it a protest, but it was also the first night of Arizona's mandated curfew after the governor put it in place following protests and looting the night before, And that was that night that everyone remembers seeing those images from Scottsdale Fashion Square and in things downtown, But me myself as a breaking news reporter the night before that I was not at the protests and looting, but rather I was at brushfire. Years in the town of Cave Creek during the ocotillo fire that essentially wiped out 20 buildings, including eight homes, and this actually lead to something very interesting Governments not very happy with other governments because of fire protection. That's correct. When I was out in Cave Creek during the ocotillo fire, I couldn't help but noticed that there were Phoenix fire trucks. Glendale Fire trucks Tempe Guadalupe in all of these different city agencies, right? Porting to not their cities, and I couldn't help. But think about why are the taxpayers of other cities their first responders are going elsewhere? What does that mean for the city of Phoenix or Glendale or Guadeloupe? There were giant holes left in fire stations when these trucks reported to cave Creek to protect these homeowners that don't pay those taxes. So after months of evolving, the story come to find out the town of Cave Creek does not have a sufficient fire service and This has been a battle and you have their neighboring agency Daisy Mountain Fire district That has said, You know if you don't pay us back, and if you don't figure something else out, we're not coming anymore, and many cities followed, too, including Scottsdale and Phoenix Fire and now it looks like the town of Cave Creek is making strides to change this Fire service issue And it's my understanding the town council that Cave Creek has just voted to essentially higher on a Scottsdale fire deputy chief If if you will. I believe his title is to take some new steps in trying to create some type of fire service within the town. We will talk more about wildfires with Katie Briers Wildfire expert Jim Cross in just a few moments, but I wanted to get back to the next night. There you are at that protest in downtown Phoenix. Did you find yourself all alone? Yeah, And it was probably it wasn't really exactly the smartest thing I've ever done is a reporter. You always have to keep your Head on a swivel, and I think sometimes my head gets a little bigger than it should be. But I I knew that this was a historic event. And as a breaking news reporter, you're called out to scenes and this is something that was bigger than anything I've ever reported on the streets were flooded with people. It was unlike anything I can describe or that I've ever seen. But in a matter of moments, the curfew, the clock struck, and it changed the whole day. Dynamics of the crowd change. The Phoenix Police Department started rolling out little pickup trucks full of police officers in full armored gear, and it was like the protesters knew that it was go time and water bottles were being thrown and I don't know if the gas it wasn't tear gas, but it was coming from not only the police but also the protesters, and it just became a sea of people that I got lost in and luckily enough, I was seen by someone that I knew within the public. Safety realm, and they got me quickly to my car to get out of there. Well, it zipped those moments where you sit yourself. Why did I choose to do this for a living? But actually it being in the middle of that moment makes it all worth it doesn't absolutely And I will never forget that feeling and knowing that it was as close to dangerous I possibly could have gotten, But the fact that I could have experienced it in the way that I did. I did not have any type of Hey, Ta are Garvan to show that I was a reporter? I was just there experiencing witnessing what was happening, and it's almost like what my parents have always said. You can just be at the wrong place at the wrong time. Sometimes that is the case when you have a front row tol history unfolding Alley Ventnor great stuff this year. Always appreciate chatting with you and keep up the good work. Thanks, Jim. You're listening to a K t A R news special. Look back at 2020. Hey, this is Jim Sharp for landmark capital.

It's not Dallas, but it's a large city, very large city. Um, so they should be slick. But the man was really impressed with how they delivered and they play the audio. They play the 911 call the play the video of this within a few weeks of this going down so that people could see this, So I watched it all. And pulled some audio from it better than anyone call.

He's out there and not there for a couple hours, jumping on cars, stopping them on the streets and jumping on people's cars. Cops get there. He's got a gun in his hand. And it's approaching them and he won't stop and the cops Are giving him orders and everything. And as I said, he's so high and so superhuman strength. I remember in community college I had, uh, my, uh, awesome Um, criminal justice Professor. Was a colonel defense attorney, among many other things. Might be still with us anymore.

It is the mike Broom head show. Thanks for being with us this morning, joining us tomorrow. Williams, who is is an attorney here in town and is also an organized with black lives matter, Metro Phoenix Thanks for being on the show this morning. Thank you, sir. Let's start with the protests that were marches were here in Phoenix that were cancelled. What were the circumstances that we heard that you guys have gotten some credible threats? Yeah, Yeah. One credible threat. Um, last night, maybe more than that, but 11 threat that we thought was incredible. Honesty after it's a rare occurrence that it's nothing compared to the threats are people have to endure every day going about their everyday lives from police officers that threat of cages the threat of death on the threat of violence, and that's from salary that we pay for. When you look at the circumstances here in Phoenix versus other cities, and how how marches and protests have gone whether there were black lives matter or just protests. They've been very peaceful here in the valley. What do you attribute that to Well, um, we have some great organizer's that put together these protests, but you know it. It depends on what you mean by peaceful way aren't seeing sort of this, You know, right wing sort of response at most of our events. But the police are out there threatening us using weapons against us using chemical weapons against us Other Ah, mechanisms of violence. So you know, peaceful is an interesting word to describe what's been happening because it certainly aren't peaceful from the police response perspective, But have you are you saying that the police have initiated violence against you or they were they responding to something that was happening, whether it was property damage or it? Was physical violence that was initiated by someone else. The police initiate violence against us every day, Not just after protests. You know, it's it's a shocking and revolting thing to have police murder and abuse us on and you know the responses, Silence or or the description is peaceful. Every time that some of these protests we hope for police restraint and only see police escalation, honestly, last night was probably one of the most peaceful nights I've ever seen from the Phoenix Police Department. And this has been going on for months. Now you know the issue and I'm not as I want to ask me Devil's advocate here with this Chief Jerry Williams has said she has been listening to the protesters into listening to what people want. And we've seen some changes in the Phoenix Police Department. Jerry Williams grew up in this city, an African American girl to an African American woman, and she's raised two African American sons. And she runs that agency. Why would you accuse that agency of being violent against you? When the head of that agency has lived a similar life to you? Um, yeah, You know, maybe Chief Williams have lived a similar life to me. But just because you put someone in that office who maybe can relate to my experiences doesn't mean that the system Is going to allow that women woman to make changes or that the system is going to allow that woman to listen to us when when you when you hear a asking for accountability from our Phoenix police department So those requests are ignored. Um, officers keep their jobs. We asked her transparency, and those requests are only met with delay and even unbearable condescension. So just because Chief Williams may relate to a couple of things in my background or my history doesn't mean that she's making the changes that we need to be made. I mean, this is a violent institution chief Jerry Williams without the head of this institution in 2018, when we had the most Incidents of officer involved shooting in the nation, this violent institution that it is violence and malice for so long on DH. We need to shine a light on that and I agree. When there are bad cops, they should be exposed and go to prison and they should never be on the police force. But you have to admit that a lot of those incidents of police shootings are justifiable because they're responding to violence against them or other people. Are you saying that those were not justifiable shootings at all? There is no justification for police officers to murder people on the streets. That's not how our system works. The on ly reason you're saying that to me is because the public narrative That support the status quo that supports police violence has convinced you that these murders Extrajudicial murders. Are necessary. How sad. I can't take what you just said, and go to these families who lost their loved ones whose loved ones have been subjected to grotesque bindings and tell them what you just said. That's unacceptable. Listen, I I'm not saying it from any other perspective. Then there are times when police officers are interacted are approached in a violent way or defending people against violence. And that's why they use their firearms. They don't look go ahead the large if I may, I'm that's no. Absolutely no. The large majority of what police officers do in our streets. Has nothing to do with responding to violent crime. I think nationally only about 4% of a police officer's job actually respond to a violent crime. Um, you know, it's really just a false narrative that convinces people out in the streets that The violence that police keep on our bodies, some necessary public function or some necessary public good. It's grotesque. I'm saying that the shootings that are happening in the streets of Phoenix are necessary because it's a violent act that they're responding to. Not all of their reaction. Interactions are violent. None almost none of them are but when they turned violent, what is an officer supposed to do? Mike, Can I ask you this? How could you fixed your mouth to say that the shootings and murders in the streets of the city of Phoenix are necessary? I didn't say that the murders were necessary. I'm saying that not all officer involved shootings. I would say the vast majority of officer involved. Shootings are not murders at all. The vast, but the vast majority of officer involved. Shootings may not be murdered, but that does that justifies that the attempted murder on our community members. I mean, just because someone survived an officer involved shooting by here. I wasn't look I wasn't talking about his officers were trying to kill. No, I wasn't talking about them. Not dying. I'm saying even when death occurs, it's not a murder. You're a lawyer. There is a difference between self defense or defending other people in the officer's capacity as a police officer and murder because you've murdered somebody that didn't need to die or didn't have to die, and it wasn't life or death situation for the officer, so I don't believe they were murdered by definition. Mike, you're wrong. The definition of murder is murder. When you take someone's life, it's a homicide. Just because you Khun justified later doesn't mean it wasn't murdered. So if someone's in a life or death situation if your life is being threatened and you take that person's life, you consider yourself a murderer. Absolutely. I have to go to court. I get charged with murder. I get charged with homicide. I have to go to court and tell a jury of my supposed peers that I had a reason for doing that murder or I had a reason for using that violence, the police officers because of the growth of lack of accountability and aren't in our jurisdiction..

"So I I mean I don't know how many times we've talked about that on here. If the management is supportive when I come suggested changing. Then I'm more likely to accept other changes that somebody else suggested. I mean. Yes leadership starts at the top. Guess what? It's bottom up method though you get all of the great ideas you get the buy in. It's not the leader of the company doing the work it's not a liter, the organization doing the work it is all of the people on the ground floor that are doing is oftentimes, I, feel like the leader is somebody either hasn't done your job for a very long time has forgotten what it's like. Or never did your job and that's the worst came from somewhere else. You know I got a business management degree so I can manage all of you. So you know I feel like the managers in the leaders are disconnected oftentimes ar from you in your position. And a properly implemented management system. Helps alleviate that. helps alleviate it. Just. I can't. You know I keep emphasizing because we read all these case studies and it's all sunshine and rainbows and look how great they did. I don't even think Phoenix Police Department still has or their records and advocate I. Don't know that they still even have this which is disheartening. Yup that they went and got it and see, and this is not but again, it's so many other that we read. But it's not going to be sunshine and rainbows if your management isn't doing it right and therefore getting the culture change and the Union. Yeah. So No, it felt we didn't go very much longer after twenty minutes. No no, but I, you know I gotta say there's not a chance. I could do the job that any of these men and women out there do but I can definitely, we can help make it better. Yeah. See. So many ways this could be made better and that impacts every truly everyone the impacts everyone. So we don't ever try to sell on here but I gotTa say if you are a police chief or in charge of any department in a police department. I mean, I, got a guy like. This. Again is just I can't stop I just gotTa stop myself because just it's mind boggling how so many of these massive issues that face the nation that are argued and debated and Infinitely. There are good common sense solutions take time. Like this was four years to get there they take time and invest time investment and monetary investment but when it's done. The. Return is huge. I. Think the reason it doesn't work for organizations like this I know we tried to wrap it up but now we're going to keep going. But we've done a couple of case is like with school districts. Yeah..

"Is a special tie in today so I'm really glad you were able to make it yes it's a good good good time and I like this show do I like the show to end the show wouldn't be possible without Bonneville and it definitely wouldn't be possible without Bonneville and son a witness working together and I think a lot of people have always heard call sign a witness if you have information but what they may not know is how many people are behind the scenes so sale witness which is technically a a five oh one it's it's a charity in essence is not manned by a the staff the police staff as our loan by the Phoenix police department but behind that are approximately thirty board members who give up their time their lifetime way from their family to invest in the program because the cash rewards that we pay they're not cash rewards that are your tax dollars it's money that we raise in fundraisers and so we're joined by a couple board members couple staff member saying that we have a special guest who somebody is going to recognize their voice in there before we get going you were serving inside a witness for years before do you still have a chance to utilize this program when you're out leading patrol yeah and the nice part about it is is that what what I found is that not only do I use this program but people come up to me talking about the program I was shocked as probably you are as we started doing this that you know at five thirty six six thirty in the morning there's so many people in the audience is so big in a lot of those audiences actually some officers who are out there who are working and and other people that get up early so it's nice to be able to connect with them and then then then understand that is about the community media and us come together working together to make our communities safer and I get a lot of tax and information people saying Hey I love the show and Derek did a great job right right right right today we're joined by Katie kropas is one of the paid staff members from the Phoenix police department Jose Santiago who a lot of people recognize and may have heard from previous they will talk to him in a moment a clay Croesor and Ursula Williams not only our Ursuline clay board members but they're both based avid sporting clays into shooters so for those of us who don't know what our sporting clays right away so sporting clays there's there's there's a few different types of shooting sport disciplines and when one of them being sporting clays is is your walk around circuits khallid golfer the shock on so there's multiple stations throughout the desert and each station has a different target opportunity to shoot at and there shouldn't clay pigeons little round clay pigeons out and you're and you're taking shots at a keeping score so it's a great way to get outdoors and and take a walk through you know the desert with some friends and enjoying the shooting sports and Ursula you've been engaged in not just sporting clays but I would maybe you want to export shop we've heard about your capabilities can you talk a little bit about this skilled in this hobby that you have in this big you've developed it now that you're quite reroute renowned at I yes thank you mmhm plus save the RKC that so actually Sir shooting about us are competing about five years ago and it was pretty much more to supplement training at my agency I work at full time and so pretty much I got it too was caught three gun which service rifle shotgun and precision rifle of your separate for stuff and pistol so I actually shouldn't compete internationally as well as domestically and a lot of different disciplines and sporting clays is actually this one seems worse I it is basically gone off with a shotgun where you pretty much as you walk around after for stations and there's different orientations of those plays so you're does work on our different skill sets fundamentals and shooting so as some this is so much fun and I have to and I think a lot of people can agree I've never heard of this before the fundraiser idea came up we're always looking for ways to to raise funds because it your tax dollars are used for the rewards that we pay and when you guys came up with this idea I I idea and I think like you were the first to come to the table with that I think everyone kind of cut their heads sideways like I'm not sure what that is can you tell us how this idea came to you and why you thought it might be a good fit a yes so we talk about golf the shock I mean how many fundraisers you see out there for golf tournament golf tournament golf tournament and it starts to get monotonous and and just it seems to be the same thing and the Gauls fun but try to do something different and not everybody enjoys golf and if your if you aren't necessarily athletic it can be a struggle at times and the sporting clays it's it's a it's a sport that people from all different skill sets are athletic you know capacities are are able to have fun at and and learn and so it's a it's a short it's a short term and it takes you know maybe a couple hours to get through so doesn't take your full day it's with great way to get out and bring some new people and and then the other great part of this event was trying to bring in the law enforcement side of things and not just do a fundraiser but do some way to give back to law enforcement community and so providing opportunities for people who may not want actually shoot themselves to sponsor a law enforcement agency to provide for officers a chance to go out and spend a couple hours just to release some stress and and have some fun so great thank you event as well as a fund raising a potential and starting check here but one thing is also about one thing that's really cool about the whole sparkly thing is that it does attract a lot of different demographics so as not just a lot of people that just play golf how is also a lot of people were you don't need to have a five thousand dollar club to go out and have fun you can actually go out there with a you know Charles daily field three hundred hundred dollars saga is still go on how old the old Tammy downgrade yeah I rent one from the neighbors when in there for ten dollars ten dollars to Ursula's point one of the things that really stood out to me was the demographics of this event there are men and women from every walk of life in children absolutely it was it was a very family friendly of and it was a very friendly community and you know we're aware that not everybody everyone has their own individual thoughts on on shooting and shooting is a sport and so for those who enjoy shooting is poor or want to learn more about it I really thought the community that came out together both law enforcement and community was was very cool and they had a lot in common do you find that to be true when you talk to people who engage in the sport yes because there I can actually put aside all of their political differences to actually come out and have fun so regardless of where your world where you're born were you raised what do you do for your for your career choice other types of set aside because you're out there actually raising money for the community regardless of what you do in your your day job and in a moment I want to ask you why you volunteer for the site in a sport I want to talk to who is a for just a moment Jose you spent a long time in the media yes and then you had a part to second career and now part three has happened upon you can just talk to us a little bit about what you do because we work closely with your agency and I want everyone to hear about the media's perspective of sign when US absolutely yeah I as you mentioned I I was a reporter here in the valley for a really long time and then I moved on I was D. became the doggie guy the last couple of years of most people recognize me holding up a pit bull or puppy of some type and now I am the communications manager for both police and fire for the city of Glendale so it's a really big responsibility that I'm happy to take on with you guys in silent witness it is a vital service to this community for the media especially you are giving us the information that is that the public needs the video the sound the story the scenario and I think a lot of times what people don't realize is just that little tidbit of information on the news fifteen thirty seconds a minute is enough to maybe jar someone memory really get a case like that's difficult salt and solved in a timely manner and thank you for your partnership when you're in the media you've always been a huge supporter program so thank you not just for what you you've done yesterday but we enjoy working with the Glendale police by we're looking forward to tomorrow's with you guys as well and Ursula you and I have been kind of a catalyst to getting law enforcement agencies throughout the whole valley to to participate in this event do you find that yeah they might talk some stuff to each other but really they all walk out having fun everyone has had a great days ago the a wonderful way for them to to spend the morning what kind of feedback do you get from people when they're done in these offense pretty much everybody's like it's fine is something else yeah you're working you're totally working on a necessary skill that for for work but you're also you're doing is such a fun relaxed environment we're doesn't feel like work so you everybody doesn't something feels like work you're actually working but what it does it that's the best time your life right there with a little bit of comparison so tell me who's got the bragging rights now I think because what channel is because Ursula didn't compete less here right that's right I did what it was like I'm trying to you know run this event and also like shoot at the same time right right he's team and it was just like I'm just be employed in a hundred different directions it's a win is the event and when when is when is that going to take place take place Friday March six is one bit been every size sporting claim range which is right off of the carefree highway just north or just off the seventeen the actress is a B. fifty sixty west skate street and if you know anything about bin every range it's going to be the range as much further west of the main entrance is going to start at eight o'clock in the morning and that's when we'll have our shooters brief and then shots rang at night and how do we sign up for that so the best way to sign up is to go online to a silent witness dot.

"Bring four at four story for. they're not body cameras there gun mounted cameras in the Phoenix police department may be considering buying stuff some people believe these are more reliable as evidence in police shooting all right so now we've got more cameras on more Phoenix police officers they already have the body worn cameras and now there's going to be a little Itsy Bitsy camera on they're gone. so when they pull out I guess you know you will be able to to see it. I mean the best the best example I can say is it'll look like a first person shooter video game. I mean that's what it'll look like when you ask you what I'm thinking because it's you know it's moving around so much we we gonna get is anybody going to get. no physically sick from watching because it's not stable why don't why don't that what is in Phoenix just come out and say Hey listen you're a cop you you're a cop in Phoenix we just don't trust you because I'm tired of all these cameras I mean these cops are gonna be able to do anything. I'm not gonna be able to go to the bathroom without somebody knowing that all right or do I don't I don't need the camera on then you know I don't know I don't know I don't need that either but I I do think these cat technology these cameras are just getting what what what it what do you do next what we're where can you put the next camera do you want to put you put one of. I mean really what do you do you want to do on it no put back up camera like we haven't cars now. they already have a dash camera right. dash cam everybody can now they're gonna have a gun cam. and there are they already have to in Phoenix the all right there we have to document every time now that the pulled the gun out right which I'm not a big fan of either because I'm thinking if I'm a police officer I actually pull my gun out I'm gonna have to see why it pulled my gun out maybe I'll leave my gun in and then you get shot and killed I don't like it too many cameras Phoenix too many camera and it doesn't mean that it's going to solve every issue or answer every question either we know that now all right even listen to the big four at four..

"California has lost its ever love in my well I couldn't have said that way back when to well especially today California governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill and what it is any concerns police officers it would allow police officers to use deadly force only when necessary what is it that when they're supposed to use deadly force rather than reasonable well okay so what is necessary for staff to find that right the the law does not define what necessary is yeah they lost their of eleven mine so so what could happen in California is that an officer shoots and kills someone could go to court and could be charged with murder I mean this is like the inmates running the asylum now right I mean it you know police officers don't have a leg to stand on well now let's talk about what happened here in Phoenix are the Phoenix police department is saying every time an officer polls they're gone they've got a documented I don't like this idea and neither does Brandon Tatum who joined us a little earlier he's a former police saw a police officer in Tucson here's what he had to say about that it's a waste of time updated your Williams like a civil force you need to turn a bad thing it is a waste of time this is virtue signalling I was a police officer and if you're going to have police officers register our our document every time they put a gun you need to you guys to the public what offices pull their guns out we pull our guns out double time give me multiple times a day depending on a certain circumstances situation because it's a it's a viable threat of use of force and if you're gonna have a documented if somebody's gonna for you requested documents in order to sell to the public that I was pulled a gun Bob times a day dinner will be another criticism of the police department without context Jerry knows this all all this is a little bit and I wish the people understood how much work we have to do already we need to just be able to do our job we don't we should have to do so much paperwork involved is illegitimate stuff just the pool to social justice warriors there were not out of killing people for no reason and it seems to me that that the we've got a governor in California he says the people will decide on whether you made the right decision as a cop as a copper law enforcement agency and now we've got the chief of Fenix PD saying we need more baby sitting to understand why you're pulling your gun I thought there was already stuff in place we've heard of cops getting fired being up for murder we know of cops that have shot people for bad circumstances I just don't understand where do you think why do you think this is happening now where is this headed in the wrong direction for sure the reason is happening because the police chief in minutes with pallipes are under the thumb of city council and there is the the I guess the the backlash of the community I mean this is this is not legitimate to baby sit in the academy is back in two thousand eleven did we teach the escalation officers on human being right one for fathers mothers we we don't want to people for no reason and we're taught to do things properly in a border from years ago decades ago I don't know why all of a sudden they feel like they need to introducing the we already are learning a were already are being taught right that's what it doesn't understand me either that they're ours there's a review board there are people to to discipline or punish or fire cops if they do something wrong I don't know why we need a law and I don't know why my my my brother in law is a state trooper in Maryland and he complains all the time about paperwork why do you need why would eighty eight law enforcement chief want to put more paper work on their officers already it makes no sense to me because you don't care they don't care if the public has an outrageous you don't want to lose our jobs you don't want to disappoint the city council so let's put more regulations must put more log in the place yeah I'm I'm for everything mothering the efforts of the law for sin because you don't have to go out there and brought in the patrol car and put her life on the line anymore she stood behind a desk in an air conditioned facility you don't have to do notice that you don't have to use force against anybody you don't have to do to think that the patrolman a doing so it's hard to get up there and do that but she makes a lot right but she has I wouldn't you think she would fight against this tooth and nail she knows what it's like to be a cop hello she just call fill it out when you get to a certain point in what you care more about your career than the people on the ground there is no way in the world it Gerry Williams who I thought was a respected police person in Phoenix Arizona it is no way in the world that you don't understand it we complain all the time about extra paperwork we complain all the time about so many things to make and they get to the top in a couple of minutes regardless it makes no sense man is very difficult to do the job to start with but it seems like they're more concerned with community outraged are with the concerns of law enforcement personnel we need more help we need more training we need more ammunition to train in qualify what are farmers going to once a year why aren't they focus on all the things that can help the police officers luncheon better instead of jumping at every complaint from the community mind you none of them have ever put on the bears none of them have ever told a police car none of them so if you start taking criticism from people who have been involved in it it's not going to end well and is not good for police are that's random Tatum for Tucson police officer so I mean there's the story from California and here in Arizona now cop that's the log every time they pull their gone I mean I'm telling you California I don't think they want the cops pull their guns ever right and that's not what's coming to Phoenix but we're starting to get a little close to it or they're going to have more cops killed the graph to reverse the walkable all yeah all right coming up next Becky Lynch got some news will check some traffic we want you to call us on something totally different two seven seven five eight two seven do you have a racist Pat do you have a animal who reacts to people of a different color than you are an African American housekeeper is now not allowed to clean a church because the priests dog is racist doesn't like black people does this actually

"Sprinting, amac and Gaydos on the program. So over the past many weeks. hasn't been good for the phoenix police department i think some of the things that they've done they brought upon themselves others other things that they've done i think have been portrayed unfairly and there's just a ton of negativity out there about the cops and yesterday if you look at what happened in phoenix there are a lot of supporters that showed up at a phoenix city council meeting for the police now last week we had the town hall or whatever you wanna call it a community meeting very different very different okay that was one side and then that was last week and then this week we had had the other side of the phoenix city council meeting so we wanted to take your phone calls about positive interactions with valley police if you if you look at some of the things out there that police do most of it doesn't doesn't get on on a video most of it most of it doesn't go viral most of it isn't mentioned right and we thought why not let's see can you give us some examples of a personal experience you had with police maybe you are in a bad spot got there was a car wreck or the robbery or whatever it was you were comforted or saved or get a

him hey you must have been on the fourth quite a long time and he said no actually only been on the force like seven years and he was in his late forties and he actually taught me into joining the d._p._s. force Oh, really? yeah so i became an officer as the second oldest guy to go to the academy how old were you when you went to the police academy almost fifty years old how'd you how'd you get

totally visible i mean it was a nineteen eleven so it was quite large and he he had no problem with any helped me throw the branch off to the side of the road i'm assuming he called someone else to

"Station, KTAR news. Arizona's news station. KTAR news on ninety two three FM fruit, Saint James and Pamela Hughes. The Phoenix police department is investigating as the result of a new cell phone video that came out of them, interacting with a couple with two small children, interacting. I'm trying to be just give the facts. Okay. How they interacted with them is the problem is the reason behind the investigation. Okay. All right. Make sure on the same page buddy. But they did interact interaction that took place definitely was interaction. And it is calling into question. Why the officers reacted the way they did you have to back up and say, there was an initial report of a shoplifting. Call from like a dollar store where a child had apparently shoplifted stolen a dull. Okay. So we have a Dolly. Was apparently stolen and there's a description of child K and the police are getting involved. Right off the bat. You're like, okay. Yeah. The police pull this vehicle over which they say fits the description of the vehicle in the shoplifting incident and. Exactly what transpires we're not sure the, the, the man is taken out of the vehicle. He was driving, and the video picks up with him lying face down on the ground, by the way, it's one hundred some odd degrees outside lying face down on the ground handcuff. Now, when you say the video, this is not a body camera video, this is video from a look see Lou somebody nearby. About getting looking down onto this is the case nowadays. You've got police. You've got some suspects people pull out their cell phones. And they start recording the cell phone video begins with a man on the pavement hands behind his back being handcuffed, by Phoenix police officer seconds later. He's yanked off the ground and then pushed up against the squad car his feet about shoulder width apart. That's when the office aggressively sweeps his leg, then yells. Okay. So the officer is yelling some, you know. A bleep do some of that out. And when we say, sweep the leg. You know, don't don't think of like karate kid, sweep the leg. No. This is a kind of a kick in the foot out a little bit further. So your stance is wider. And it does appear as though the guy that has pushed up against the police SUV wobbles a bit, maybe took a knee and then got back up. Right. It was aggressive aggressive. See anything in this suspect who's handcuffed also. I don't see him. Combative know what you've seen before. Sure. I don't understand why the officer is yelling the way he is. But again, I'm not there. And when I say, aggressive, I, maybe that is even too much of a term, it seems a bit too much. But in my in my civilian, I is it doesn't seem agreed. Yes. Okay. Not just me because when we had sergeant Darren Birch former a former sergeant Phoenix police department took a look at the video, and he caught up with Arizona's morning news. Heated say this. I think what's of concern is when he. Doing this lakes with that is taught in order to get someone against the, the car, you don't want them to somehow push up off you so you separate their legs. Okay. So what else was going on? Why would that leg sweep needed? Why is he officer? So agitate oak. Yes. And then but wait, there's more after we see the sweeping of the leg up against the police SUV. You have another officer who is now approaching the SUV that they just pulled the suspect out of right, right? With his gun drawn. Yes..
