He's a Democrat and the first black man ever elected to the job. Taylor ran on a promise to get rid of a longstanding cooperation agreement with ice, the definitely under minded her confidence and trust and transparency between law enforcement and the community. Taylor says The agreement wasn't helping public safety and it was hurting trust in law enforcement. In a county where more than one in four residents was born outside the U. S. He's pledged to get rid of it on day one. That is correct. That is my plan. Yes, it is. The 2020 election is expected to usher in a major shift in immigration enforcement. On the federal level. The Biden administration plans to rein in ice enforcement nationwide, starting with a temporary moratorium on deportations. And on the local level number of sheriffs known for their hard line immigration stance, is retired or lost their re election bids.

Breonna Taylor settlement is among largest payouts linked to a police shooting
"Gorman. If you wanna listen to it. Let's start with the settlements in Louisville with Briana Taylor's family a couple different things to run through of the next few minutes. Earlier this week, the Louisville metro government announced a $12 million settlement package with family of Briana Taylor. Of course, was 26 year old black woman who was shot in her own home by police officers serving a no knock warrant in March. The settlement also includes a Siri's of police reforms. Some of the reforms are changes to the approval process for an execution of search warrants. The hiring of social workers at the department a commitment to increase drug and alcohol testing of officers involved in any shooting, encouraging officers to perform at least two paid hours a week of community service in the communities they serve. And housing credits for officers toe live in certain low income parts of the city. And Felix, You took a look at the settlement. What stood out to you? Well, I think two things one. It was a record breaking settlement in and of itself. The $12 million payout. Briana Taylor's family's attorney, Benjamin Crump, represents George Floyd's family and multiple others in these situations, he said. It himself is the most money it's ever been paid for. A police involved shooting involving anyone, so that's significant itself. But Briana Taylor's mother, I said I think said it best. This is just the beginning the reform package they put together that was interesting that they the mirror who's got a vote of no confidence the other night. Apparently, you know, insisted that that was going to be part of the settlement agreement from the day one, which was good because they announced it together. It's not just about the money, but it's about the reform, which in one of these cases That's what is the driving factor, not necessarily the money. So you mentioned the key ones that are involved in this. It's interesting because we talked about the social worker aspect of Policing before because of a policy that sheriff Bob Altieri put in place here in Pinellas County, where he wanted social workers to go out to these mental health calls first on their own, try and de escalate them. And then if there's trouble than calling the police, which was You and I both thought that was a bad idea in this particular reform. Does that frothy area was that Holloway? That help earlier think that was. Yeah, I think it was cheap and also got a theory. But it's a same Pete initiative. So anyway, sorry about that. But in anyone what they will do in this case is social workers will go with The police officers on these calls or meet them out at the call, not endanger themselves. So it's kind of being that's what we thought should happen is that that's the more responsible, appropriate way to do it rather than just sending people out on their own. And then you know if the situation escalates. You got a problem on your hands. Yeah, exactly. Do you don't have time to wait for an officer to show up or say like, Hey, wait around the corner while I go talk to this person suicidal and walked in the bathroom of the gun. You know, and then ends up ends up shooting an unarmed social worker, and the other thing That's interesting is that we talked about the no knock warrants. They enacted a law in Louisville already doing away with down, But then they went one step further. Just like now, this is sheriff quality areas policy, which was the more hierarchy in terms of getting the warrant. So The way it used to work here in Fort is like you would have the detective's whether it's robbery homicide. Narcotics. Those are the ones that usually get the most warrants. They would review the case they would take their warrant to the state attorney's office. State attorney would review it and then they would be the ones to say Okay, you can go ahead and go to a judge. Well, what they done in Louisville and Penelas is that they built in another law of letter layer. Inside the department level, so supervisors will have to sign off on the warrants before they can Goth to get approval from prosecutors or the judges or accountability exactly within the department, So you don't have Because we've read the the warrants and the stories about what happened in Briana Taylor's case, and they were so thin in the connections they were trying to make Tio, the main suspect. They've lived on the other side of town, and the tenuous nature of it was the fact that she paid this guy's phone bill was an ex boyfriend of hers and also had his shoes delivered an Amazon package delivered and they immediately made the jump that that was somehow Drug trafficking activities, so that should be reviewed at a much higher level, and that's something I think I encourage. I think you'll see a lot more departments doing that. And like I said Florida, we have that additional level of the prosecutors by think it should go down one level more in order for the police involved to say, like hold on a second. Let's review this before. You go to a prosecutor with us because I got put into situations a lot of times where the detectives would get a thumbs down from a prosecutor on the case, and then they call another prosecutor in the prosecutor would say, Oh, no, This is perfectly fine. And so you have those sites of mixed messaging on stuff and that could get very dicey because not only if you go from one prosecutor, another And for example, I said, No, you don't have enough for a warrant, And then they go to another prosecutor that they're friends with. And they say, you know, they can approve the warrant that tire up to me, then you know, on Well at that point, So that's the thing the problem that they have with that so interesting reforms that they're going to do and the one I like the most. I think the most interesting is giving them the housing credits to move into. The neighborhoods that they are patrolling. So I want to see the follow up on that to see

New York, New Jersey and Connecticut require travelers from Florida and other states with high coronavirus rates to quarantine for two weeks

Petronas, he's with us. Live tonight to respond Mr Petronas. It's good to have you. Thanks for being here. Got, what what is your response to what these states announced today? Those states are just you know unfortunately in the throes of some of the worst economic times in their history. You know if they feel like they've got a problem they afforded coming to visit the only solution. They've got into quarantine to keep people in the state for fourteen days, so in the case of of the decision that they're making it then it's unfortunate for them. It's unfortunate, but their economy, but they've got bigger. Prom solved and keeping flirting their state. Nobody's moving their. Hundred people a day or moving to the state of Florida Rico think. How is it any different? Though than what your governor governor descent announced back in March when he had the same requirement for people from New, York New Jersey Tristate area, coming down to Florida which by the way said saved lives. How's it any different than what your own governor did? Well, I think there was definitely a hot spot in the concentration that took place from new. York highly concentrated where there are like that. Go every day in the tune southwest airlines, things eleven flights a day from New York into Fort, Lauderdale, so there is a migration that happens every year. People from the northeast come to warm weather states. You know what happened is now that the governor's feel like there's a an influx employed or a concentration of to travel up. Let me tell you people from Florida or not moving to the northeast. It's not a matter of moving to the northeast. It's a matter of visiting and vice versa. There are those. Who say that your state is on is on the verge of being out of control. You had a record number of cases today fifty, five hundred. Your new hospitalizations were the most in a month. Isn't that an issue? The increase in cases in the state of Florida or in low age individuals. Our ICU bed is is highly available. There's plenty of ICU. Beds available in the State of Florida and Governor D- Santa's leading. He has been creating a environment because not every part of the state is the same so not every state should be treated with the same type of restrictions. So why isn't this simply about taking precautions and saving lives as I mentioned, you didn't answer the question. You did have a record number of new cases today. Regardless of what age group they fall in the virus is still spreading in your state. I understand the point you're making is you're seeing cities like Tampa Pinellas County Dade County. You're seeing where they countywide instances of masks. Requirements are taking place so as you're seeing. We're spiked for taking place local governments or taking it because you can't put the same set of terms on everywhere. If you've got a hot spot and you had an increase in numbers, those mayors. Mayors and those county administrations are the necessary precautions as they illnesses, the best needs to curb the numbers wire. But why should you not have st just mentioned masks and orders from a more localized level? Why not a state order though on masks which the governor said he's he's not going to do that. It's too hard to enforce enforceable in more densely populated states. Why isn't? As enforceable in the state, of Florida. Not every communities the same, nor should they be treated the same as those areas that have spikes in numbers.

"We are joined by our guys at the movies guy Kevin Kerr and Kevin I know theaters are opening here in Pinellas county they're gonna open up again right now the much to the chagrin of some but the movies themselves aren't being made anymore now than it's going to be a while probably for Hollywood cranks it up again and well yeah I think people are waiting and seeing what's going to happen because the movie that's that's next on the slate the next one that that had a release date that did not get moved his talent which is David of seasoning which is Christopher Nolan's latest film he of course did inception and the dark knight movies in interstellar and Dunkirk and this is going to be a big movie part of it is it's a seventy millimeter film the once showed him thirty five millimeter and seventy millimeter to my Max but it's also two hundred million dollars so you need to have as many theaters open and you got to have them being able to play and you also have to have a sort of that consumer confidence of people going out to do it you can't deal with the suppressed audience now they just dropped attendance trailer yesterday last night and it is it does not have a release date all the trailer but according to the website it's still coming out on July seventeenth so we'll see before there's new content that that's coming out I think this is one of those you know what came first chicken or the egg the reader is going to open up a nationwide or are they gonna start releasing movies first and and that's something but I think it's a wait and see I think there's there's still some time left for this to be pondered could you see because the state of Georgia is opening up and we know that there's a lot of film incentives out there could you see Hollywood packing up and maybe going out east to Georgia to get some of this film work done for future movies well here's the problem with actually ramping up the production as well is it the there's there's the insurance issue that that every large production had carries of some sort of production insurance it says that they're going to be able to continue to produce and make this movie and that there's not something that's going to happen to it like a great example is in the fast and furious movie there this is one of the best movies there in the middle of making and Paul Walker died and then change the schedule and change the budget and changed everything they had insurance that covered that it's gonna be very hard to start up production on anything with any sort of coronavirus insurance so like the big productions are still out you know I E. independent doesn't matter where they where they go even Tyler Perry's talk about opening up but you're going to have to have distancing there as well either talking about producing smaller movies like a Blumhouse is going to be doing something Michael bay has one that he wants to start producing very soon but those are going to be smaller low budget the productions are not gonna be the two hundred million dollar blockbusters well they're going to be interesting to see how it all plays out and I guess going to be big for Netflix and Hulu and all of those like that

Also I have a question for, you tonight and I'll give you the results from that one tomorrow all, that's coming, up triple eight nine seven. One s. a. g. now. Demeaning to get to the story the stand your ground story in Florida There's a case a young woman her boyfriend and young son pulled, into a, handicapped spot a convenience store While, the car idled, mangles inside to, get snacks while inside a forty seven year old man, named Michael dredge Who had a history apparently of initiating confrontations over parking spaces approaches a car starts argument with the man's girlfriend who still in the car Man walks. Out sees him arguing with his girlfriend pushes the man to the ground While the man whose. Girlfriend was being screened at stood just, a few, feet away after it pushing drudge go down dreadfu, pulls out a gun shoots McLaughlin, and the man in the chest With the away in the convenience store, where he, dies in front of his son This is in Pinellas, county the sheriff however it's, refusing to charge draft citing, Florida's stand your ground law a news conference Bob gallery the Pinellas county sheriff said and I putting the law in the state of Florida today is that people have a right to stand their ground and. Have a right to defend themselves when they believe they are in harm close quote that's not what the law says The law says this quote a person is, justified in using or threatening, to use deadly force if, he or she reasonably believes that using or threatening to use such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another to prevent the imminent commission of forcible felony. So this guy starts to confrontation Woman's boyfriend comes out seizes pushes this guy that the. Ground he whips out his gun And? Shoots the boyfriend in. The chest and that's okay because of the. Stand your ground law I don't think, so I don't think that's what the law says this. Is the poor application of it, and I believe that this man should have had charges And, why this sheriff has made this determine is beyond me I'm sure there's gonna. Be a lot. Of pressure on him to. Reverse that decision we'll, find out I'll keep you informed now so far this year something like thirty three officers have been murdered. In the line of. Duty as opposed to about thirty. Five all of last year this is Fox News, on it free police officer, shot in the line of duty two of. Them in Massachusetts as they were responding. To a disturbance call both cops thankfully expected to be okay the, suspect also shot and is hospitalized and. Overnight in Los Angeles. A female officer shot in. The leg her condition is unknown the suspect is in custody the news coming is the number of. Police dying in. The line of duty is on, the rise this year alone thirty three officers have been killed that's compared. To, thirty five officers killed in? All of two thousand seventeen, now what could account for that you think just in July we have a law enforcement panel to talk about what's going on, sergeant Sean Larkin is with the Tulsa police departments gang unit He's also, a live PD featured analyst, and Tracy for Zano is the deputy chief. Of the Montclair New Jersey police department. And Joe.

"Legal great story that you. Guys do for the community you get the fights out at the the Santa Claus thing, and everything. You guys do. A WalMart All right awesome My question. Yeah what's. Up And I don't. I switch subjects right now what do you? Guys just. Talking. About them God bless you all. Thanks very much sure what. Do you want to talk about go ahead I know you guys I know you thought sheriffs said a. Lot of. Cops. In the area. And. Everything like that with that stream that? Happening Clearwater I I to. Show a couple of. Days ago but I couldn't get through a lot of callers that day and I want to know if the cut the sheriff He's on the scene of that shooting Do you think that watch the video and then determined then I am not. Going to put handcuffs on this. Gentleman arrest. Him just take the video I definitely. I think, he reviewed, all, the evidence I mean you know I I would like to think that you're Bob Guatieri watch the video a few times took eyewitness. Accounts and and then made the decision but I did talk to to Dom from ask the Dom last night. When I was, doing my phone ins and I said what's the likelihood that the state attorney now looked, at this and Pinellas county and goes. Let's let's, change the decision filed. Charges he said that's definitely. A possibility it is something that. Happens so I definitely not heard glasses and if you're mad at the family for hiring the guy who, represented, Trayvon Martin's family shame on you oh he got headlines right away and that's what you need to. Put pressure on the state attorney's office you might not like everything, that comes out of this guy's mouth, and that's fine and well and. Good but don't get mad. At that the family for for using Everything in. Their resources to put the pressure where it belongs on the state attorney's office to bring charges against the man. Who executed another man in an. Argument about. A parking space they should fill the. Pressure right, now and, I, I every day I sit and I scroll the news and I just wait to see Pinellas county state attorney to file charges against. Strike for pulling a trigger that I don't know how long it's gonna take for them to come out and. And decide either, way but I don't think the pressure's gonna stop anytime soon I think it's gonna get, quiet it's going to ramp up and. And and, we're in a culture. Right now where we don't. We don't need that we don't. Want that just do the right thing bring charges against this scumbag it's interesting to know what I realized, every, process takes time but in. This situation this crime specifically it's kind of all right there for you. To see like you would think it's it's either one way or, the other like an attorney or whoever, makes that final decision sees the. Video knows what the man Has to say knows that there's a dead person knows that this guy is somewhat of a history and that's the story yeah it is and I trust that the state. Attorney has reviewed all of this they've. Already made, their decision they're just figuring out how to release that they're going to charge strike with the murder of the gentleman who who marquees I believe who for sure they're gonna they're gonna start them I do I fully believe that Justice will be served in this situation, what happens if they decide not to what's going to. Happen in Clearwater what's gonna happen. In the bay area anything I think you'll see some protesting I think you'll see some civil, unrest and I certainly. Understand why I wouldn't begin to to pour gas. On that fire but I. Would say that I would understand why there would be a, great deal of frustration, about yet another, situation where a white man shot and killed an unarmed black man and you can say why make it a race issue, because it's a race issue that's why didn't make won the race of these gentlemen made At the race issue drew grab a live alot Hey, is. My my job to fan those flames yes ma'am how are you I'm good I understood but? Did, you say it wasn't okay for women to? Give, you.
