"pinellas county" Discussed on Florida Matters
"2020 presidential election with Kaiser health news reporter Phil Gail wits and st. Petersburg college professor Tara Newsome. We'll take a short break here and resume our conversation in just a moment. This is Florida matters on wusf 89.7. I'm Bradley George. We're talking about how the covid-19 kemik could be a deciding factor in this election for many voters in Pinellas County with reporter Phil gallwitz of Kaiser health news and st. Petersburg college professor Tara Newsome. I want to go back to the economy for a minute unemployment in Florida right now is 11.8% that's higher than the rate in Pinellas. It's 9.8% That's still a very large number but I'll start with you on this is local employment the local economy going to be a factor for undecided voters in Pinellas. Well, I'm not just a director of the center for civic learning at st. Pete College. I'm a faculty member there and one of the things that we're seeing with our students right now is that the lack of the ability and transparency to access unemployment compensation has been life changing and so Thursday, we're not only were they that able to access unemployment compensation this illusory idea that the economy is is moving forward is really not true and we have students that are hurting students that are not having access to affordable housing to sustainable jobs and are losing really that pipeline to posterity and so I think That in our little home of st. Petersburg, Florida. We certainly see that the unemployment issue is one of the most pivotal to voting in this election Phil thoughts on that every election. It's it's it's always the economy, you know, the economy stupid is obviously goes back to James Carville and electing President Clinton in ninety-two and I can't think of an election since then that the economy hasn't been a huge issue. And even though we have a kind of virus as a twin issue certainly the economy and having millions of people out of work now is gotta be something that's Weighing on people and whether or not you still have a job or whether you're working less or whether now you have more fears of losing the job now certainly be waiting on people and typically when people fear that I'm not going to be able to find a job or they fear they may lose a job certainly doesn't help any incumbent and trying to win re-election. Taro go back to you Pinellas County isn't the only part of the state or the country that seeing a growth and you talked a little bit about this at the beginning of our interview of Voters who have registered as independent sources took them here in Florida NPA is no party affiliation when you look demographically among age or other factors in Pinellas and across the state.

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
"Start with a big move from New York New Jersey and Connecticut calling tonight for a fourteen day quarantine for anyone coming in from high risk states, including the state of Florida that state's chief financial officer is Jimmy. 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. There's definitely an argument to be made where there needs to be a different protocol established there than in the rural parts of the state that don't have the spike in numbers, nor the transient
'Fat Guys at the Movies' Kevin Carr on reopening of theatres amid pandemic
"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
