"Police Commission. There was no stopping. Frisk. It wasn't Ray Kelly thing. It was really a Bloomberg thing. And I think they didn't under Giuliani. But when Bloomberg came in, he was stop and frisk crazy. It was 40,000 and was 100,000. And then what? I think it went to 400,000 people a year it was too much Stop and frisk. And different commissioners have explained this to me. You can do it right And you can do it wrong. If you do it, right. You're sending veteran cops to do it. They know who to stop. They know their neighborhood. They know who the bad guys are. But if you do go to 400,000, you got rookies doing it or stopping everybody stopping. Uh, good people don't need to be stopped. So that that's the problem. You can do it right? But I think that's why you need Curtis. He knows this stuff better than I know. You decide. Well, Eric Adams was in the NYPD. Go talk to the NYPD. They all can't stand him. They also it was terrible there, uh, been accused of all kinds of things was facing a departmental trial there quick before it happens, so that needs a little looking into Joe Biden. I think you see these polls. These new polls, which you won't get much coverage, but approval ratings dropping like crazy. People are totally disillusioned this home at the regular public, not Republican or Democrat, just normal people. They they see this guy's a bumbler. He's in confident He's not all there. Simple. There's nothing simpler than a border crisis that's a simple and build a wall. Put some guards. They're just guard the border and build a wall. Problem solved it. It's not some complex problem like international monetary. This is an easy one. They can't fix it. And people start to realize that Kamala Harris Isn't it? Just a dope? Just a moron. Am I wrong? You're laughing LeBron, Uh, compared to De Blasio, who's better? Well, uh, I'd have to say De Blasio is smarter. It's just Oh my God. We were talking Well, we're time when one is an EQ and 90 one's got an I Q 92. Maybe so. Uh, I don't know. But if you said, you know, Kamala Harris, the millions of people coming across the border, see if you can figure this out. She goes down there. People are flooding across the border. Then, she says, we must go hunt for the root cause may be the whole borders wide open. You took down the wall, Put the wall there or guarded. Put a bunch of military They're in. Good. Maybe that's the root cause it's open. You know, like Macy's at night this, you know they closed the store. Overnight and they don't get everything robbed out of the story. The reason is they have a wall. They got a guard. They flocked. You can't get in. That's it said it's pretty much that simple. If you opened all the doors and left, I'm sure everything will get robbed. And Kamala Harris would go. We kind of find the root cause of this. The root causes close the door and lock it. It's that simple. People are disillusioned with both of them. Joe Barton, Let me ask you a question. I want an honest answer. You know when you get on a plane and the pilot comes out, or you see the pilot walk aboard the plane. If Joe Biden you didn't know who he was, if he walked on the plane with that dazed look in his eyes. And said, Would you stay on the plane? Or would you run off the plane? At that point that that would be scary? Him flying a plane? Yeah. Alright. Let me ask you a question. You're going to go somewhere. Would you let Joe Biden drive you in a car? Oh, definitely not definitely. What is that? Same h. I mean, everybody, You ask the same thing. Would you let him drive? Unit car? No, I'd be afraid. But I'll let him run the whole country. I'll put him in charge of my safety, my pocketbook with him running. Somebody else's really steering this car, I think Okay, Well, that's reassuring. Don't worry. Somebody else's running it. We don't know who or where. Somewhere there's a Secret committee running everything so Hey, this infrastructure Bill passed a trillion dollars. Now you have to. I just want to keep explaining this over and over again. When truck Schumer When these guys get out there on camera, start talking about infrastructure. You never heard him so enthusiastic,.

Law enforcement organizations and police unions have spent months lobbying against SB two. While it's not unusual for them to donate money to mostly moderate Democrats, the latest donations give pause. The Sacramento Bee reports. Some contributions in recent weeks have gone into the accounts of more progressive leaders like San Diego Democrat Lorena Gonzalez. She's the chairwoman of the Assembly Appropriations Committee, which is next in line to review the bill. Since SB two passed the state Senate in May, the L. A Police Protective League and the Deputy Sheriffs Association of San Diego have poured tens of thousands of dollars into her various accounts. Her representatives have rejected any connection between the bill and the donations. But when the bill was in that critical Senate vote in the spring, the senators who abstained were Democrats who received funds from law enforcement groups.

"By the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission, the ultimate gang that couldn't shoot straight that on Monday. Al Morales, the former chief of police in Milwaukee, will return and will become the present chief of police in Milwaukee. Now let me be real clear here. I think Alfonso Morales was one of the best chiefs the city of Milwaukee has had in the last couple decades. But what we also know what happened is he was never the mayor's choice. And the he was a split choice by the firing Police Commission members of the Common Council who were playing to a small but loud members of their base, who didn't like the fact that Al Morales was tougher on crime, and they thought he should be. And they didn't like the fact that he was cracking down on people and making sure that you know we didn't have the degree of riots that we had in Milwaukee, like they had in the Kenosha. Or maybe even Madison. Didn't like any of that. So Al Morales got on the wrong side of some generally liberal, generally pro criminal members of the community. And so what happened is the fire and Police Commission ousted him and and we all know the circumstance. What they did is they demoted him, which was effectively what they call in the law a constructive discharge. That means that they didn't really They didn't formally fire him from the department, but they essentially forced him to quit. So they demoted him to captain. He then left sued. We all know the results of that in Milwaukee County Circuit Judge has said, by the way with the agreement of the city attorney that the Fire and police Commission violated his various rights And he's entitled under the law to have his job back unless they can reach a settlement. Well, the city of Milwaukee apparently doesn't want to pay him. Um what he would otherwise be entitled to, so they'd rather have him come back. Now I think having Al Morales back as the head of the police department is a great thing, But there's a big but that goes along with this are right. First of all, you have to understand. That Al Morales. It's got to be free to run the police department, like he thinks it's appropriate to run the police department. Now the firing police commissions had a lot of turnover. But if the fire and police Commission is now going to try to micromanage his actions and say, Okay, well, al Morales wants to bring back the gang squad. Al Morales wants to start implementing more of a broken windows type of thing. And the firing Police Commission ends up telling him no. Well, we're just going to be right back where we were months ago. If Al Morales is going to come back, the fire and police Commission has to step back and let him do his job. I don't know that they're necessarily going to be willing to do that. On top of it. You've got to understand when I say what a mess. This is the deal. In the well, he left. He was demoted in August. Since then, you've had now to interim police chiefs. Alright, those interim police chiefs they've They've surrounded themselves with members that they've got a command staff, so they've promoted. You know people that they wanted to promote that. That's fine. But I have a pretty good idea that some of the people that have been promoted to different positions are people that Um, now Chief Morales doesn't necessarily thinks belongs in those positions. So it will be interesting to see how how this is handled, namely, You know what's going to happen to people who might have been elevated in the last few months? Are they going to now be demoted our our new people going to come in. It's just a complete and total mess. Now again, I think it's great that Al Morales is back is the police chief. I just don't see. How this is a workable sort of situation. I don't which is why I think the city Cheapening their cheeping out and not paying him. I mean, look at all the money. The city of Milwaukee pays to people who have claims, some of which are are not exactly the The most valid sort of claims, but they pay them because it's the politically correct thing to do. So if you're going to bring our Morales back that that's great, But you've got to get out of his way and you've got to. And this is addressed to the mayor and the Common Council and Fire and Police Commission. You've got to let him do his job, because if all this is is a sham, you bring him back. But now what we're going to try to do is we're going to try to get rid of him again. Except this time we're going to try to do a better job of dotting our I's and crossing RTs. Which is entirely possible, given the way the fire and police commissioners behaved over the years. Well, then you're not doing anybody any good, then it's better to just pay him. Send him on his way and move on with whoever the new broom is that you're going to bring in and let that new broom sweep clean. So here. I mean, here's the deal. If this is a shotgun marriage that that's fine, but you have to allow Al morale is to be al Morales. And I'm just not sure that the again the fire and police Commission, the common Council or the mayor, or willing to do that, and if they're not It's just a betrayal of the people in the city of Milwaukee. So I I don't know how all this is going to work out. I'm candidly surprised that it's gotten to this stage. I thought at some point in time. Some people in the city of Milwaukee would have just recognize that look, I think it's important to end up moving on and so you pay and plus, you know, uh, Chief Morales. He's got a federal lawsuit. I mean, you've got this the the lawsuit about the job, but he's got a federal lawsuit that's pending against the city as well. So now you're going to be in a position of a chief who was improperly fired who's now reinstated as the chief and at the same time. No, he's pursuing a federal action against the city. It's just what What is. What are those three words We've been using to describe this program today. It's a mess. It's just an absolute mess. I hope it all works out for the best, because, like I say, I think the Fire and Police Commission. Did a huge not just let's put aside the illegal behavior but that they engaged in and getting rid of the chief in the first place. But I think that you know, by having the interim chiefs and all the stuff that they've really kind of betrayed law enforcement in Milwaukee at a time where we really need leadership, But if you're going to bring him back, you've got to give him the authority to do what he thinks is best. I don't see how this could possibly be a working relationship. But in this case, I really, really hope that I am wrong in any event the way it stands now, Um Al Morales, the police chief, again passed and now future police chief starting on Monday. We'll see how this turns out. Or Jeff Wagner. Right after this, we are your go to source for NBA Finals INSIDER The Milwaukee Bucks are going to the NBA Finals tune in every Thursday at 3 54.

Biden chooses Boston Mayor Walsh as Labor secretary
"Landscape is about to undergo some major changes in Boston. Who better to talk about it. Then WBC news radio nightside host Dan Ray Morning, Dan Good morning, Charlie. Happy Sunday morning to you Happy Sunday morning to you, too. We've got Marty Walsh, nominated for Labor Secretary By Joe Biden. We've got Kim Janey will succeed Marty Walsh upon nomination, and then we've got Michelle Woo Andrea Campbell in the mix running for mayor. What's next? Well, I think what's next is gonna be Boston Police commissioner Really gross announcing sometime as early as later this week that he has decided to throw his hat into the ring as well, Um s so It's very close to really gross reached out to me last night and told me that he is the police commissioner's 90% of the way. They're just checking off with a couple of family members to make sure that everybody is on board. On that we will have another candidate who does not have political experience per se, like flying law enforcement officer Lifetime law enforcement officer who has risen through the rags. I happen to think Probably Mayor Walsh is single, most effective appointment during his administration as the as the police commissioner about to decide that he's going to try to take one step further and, um, add mayor to his resume. With the lack of political experience, Dan is that beneficial in this day and age or is it hurtful? I think it's very exciting is very beneficial to girls with the Charlie because I think that people have looked at him truly is a public servant. A lot of politicians will save me a public servants. They're public servants. They're public servants, but what they're doing is they're looking for political office, maybe to become a stepping stone to another political office. I think really, grass is very committed to the city of Boston. The people no city of Boston, he started great job is the police commissioner. We had the good fortune of having some fine police commissioner's A Davis, of course, comes to mind. Uh, the heavens brothers and Willie Grass has continued that great tradition of law enforcement and I think that he knows the city as well as anybody. He's been around this city. And law enforcement of the city of Boston is is a very important issue, because frankly, Boston has done so well in that area than other other major cities around the country. I think I think that he's a natural, and I think you'll be a very strong political candidate. First time out of the box. Do you think, with William Grass jumping into the fray? Will that keep others who may have thought about running for mayor on the sidelines? I think it would force other people think about it. But I certainly don't think that the announced candidates Michelle will where Andre Campbell or maybe another one or two would back away because I'm sure they will look at him and say, Well, he's a police commission. He's not a politician, but I think frankly, that is gonna win no to his benefit being a police commission and someone with hands on experience. In every community in every every nook and cranny of Boston. Well, we'll have to see what it's a big step. Obviously, for someone you gotta. He has to raise funds to run a campaign. I'm also told that he has received a lot of support. From members significant people within the Boston community. You know, you may want to call them the people who are the backbone of the community business people who have indicated to him that they would like to see him run as well. So I think he has. He's got a wellspring of support of the community. That is that he hasn't even tap yet. And I think I think he will be a formidable candidate. If he decides to actually make this announcement that I'm told he is 90% certain he will make some time. Perhaps as early as later this week. Alright,

And I know Matt Kendell spoke to Jim Sinful EPO. Representative sample a boat This has got to be a number one issue for legislative Republicans. It's that simple. It will talk more about this After a while. But this has to be a numeral Uno issue. And if the governor vetoes it fine, just, you know, let him veto it. If he's going to be doing, you know, I wouldn't mind having the roll call. The Democrats in the Legislature voting against common sense legislative election reform. These are the same people who didn't want voter I d. So I don't mind putting him through the cot on that issue in the second hour. This whole thing was chief morale is so I'm going to keep referring to him his chief until the judge says that he's not. But so far, the judges said that he is It will be talking about that in the second hour. It's interesting because both at the same time, both Madison and Milwaukee and we're on in both cities. Dan Show is Both Madison, Milwaukee, You're going through controversies on their new police chief hirings right now Different controversies. But some in the same, So we're going to talk about that with Jessica McBride. And Jim people of our check from Wisconsin. Right now, That's a website. By the way, you should bookmark that website, right? I mean that they are doing some seriously good work over there. They really are. I gotta say they are doing some serious investigative journalism over there. They were on the ground in Kenosha during the riots in Kenosha. I mean, I was getting faster news from Wisconsin right now. Oh, love's going anywhere else, you know, in terms of immediate kind of what's happening. Oh, this happened that happened. This building burned down this that they were just boom boom, boom, boom boom boom the whole time. So Jessica McBride And Jim people of Arctic. From Wisconsin right now will be in studio with me in the second hour to talk about the controversy as far as I am concerned the scandal And how they've gone after The chief that this there is this. I'll tell you what they ought to clean that whole nest of thieves out of there at the Fire and Police Commission. Let's get rid of everybody. It's horrible. It's terrible. And you know what I love to have Chief morale is come back and be the full time chief. Yes, I would with a crime We've got here in Milwaukee. Yes, I would. But having said that, after what they have put chief morale is through. It would not. Trouble me if he walked away with a wallet full of money. They could take it out of the walls in the fire and police Commission versus Mars. I've got certain but God, so talk about that in the second hour, and that's that's going to be interesting because they're kind of a lot of angles on that thing and their angles also that applied to other cities. Think about it this way. The two biggest cities in Wisconsin, Milwaukee, about 600,000 And Madison about 2 40 or so the two biggest cities in Wisconsin. Both run by Democrats. And both. Have a huge and growing crime problems. That we're not dealing with the fire and Police Commission's way to deal with crime in Milwaukee. Is to fire the chief. I mean, Isn't that Could that be any more logical? Let's fire the chief. Good. These people so I want to spend a few minutes here. So that s O the president last night. Signed the covert relief bill and the spending package. In some ways. I got to say it seemed inevitable. Don't know why I think that apparently, the rumor is that he was going to sign it Christmas Eve. And then decided not to So It's this massive pork laden pig. That he signed on Sunday evening. He had some attachments to that decision that he sent along the Congress as a warning. But all the doom and gloom that supposedly we were gonna have Has been avoided. Um, you know, people are asking people were asking me this morning and online. Why the change of heart? I think They were concerned about the negative fall out. I do. I think it was very simple. And even though the bill is just portly, just a pig. And that the president wanted direct, larger payments to taxpayers. I think he went for this and will now try to fix it. In his way of fixing it, By the way, kind of interesting it may be more savvy than it appears. The president is now referencing just so people understand the what's called the Impoundment Control Act of 1974. When he was signing the bill. So what he's doing, the president is laying out a list of demands. That he wants to see Congress invoke to revise and amend the bills. That he assigned Yes. That he signed, I should say yesterday. So does that happen? Does it not happen? I don't know. Among the chief demands a renewed call for individual payments to taxpayers being increased to $2000. Right and a removal of wasteful spending. Me, the president basically said, Look, the reason I'm signing this is to restore unemployment benefits. Those affected by the pandemic. Slow down. Evictions provide rental assistance fund vaccine distribution. But essentially what he's trying to do is to force the Congress. To take another look at a couple of issues, among them the wasteful spending, he will use the impoundment act to do it. Raised objections with 1.4 trillion omnibus bill. Which which, by the way funds the government through mid September. You've got all these absurd giveaways to foreign countries. This is ridiculous, and frankly, it was in the original bill. That was negotiated and they thought they agreed on early last week. So the White House had their hand in it. Early last week. So after vetoing the National Defense Authorization Act on Wednesday. He did this now? I will say this So.

"Who call themselves the re claimers who have moved into the vacant homes in El Sereno. Well, they're not there anymore because the CHP officers removed some homeless people who were in those homes. Remember this is all part of that project that Caltrans was going to do on the 7 10 another not going to do it, but they had already bought a bunch of those homes that were there. So now those homes were just sitting empty. So people are saying all right, well, we've got a homeless problem, so these families moved into these different homes. But Caltrans is saying the reason that we had to get the CHP there to get these people off state property is that those homes aren't habitable. That they are. They're not safe for people to be in, and that's why they got them out. So now they're looking at maybe ways that all right. The freeway project has been canceled through that area. Is there a way to make those homes habitable and possibly homes, Low income housing, baby? We'll see if that's but for now, those people got yanked out on Thanksgiving Day. 50 c H p cars.

They didn't know what they were right. They knew there were gonna be protesters, obviously. So maybe that's why there was such a big response.

Dumpster fire, use whatever phrase you want to describe it, and and a lot of that comes back on Tom Barry because Tom Bear, it's the guy that ultimately puts the people on the Fire and Police Commission. The Fire and Police Commission is thie group that decided that they were going to run police Chief Alfonso Morale is in my opinion, one of the best chiefs of the city of Milwaukee has had in 30 years they were going to run him out of town on a rail. There's a lawsuit now the taxpayers and the city of Milwaukee. You're going to end up paying a lot of money because of that decision, But the interesting thing is Despite the fact that the chief morale is reformer, Chief. Morales had a lot of support from the rank and file police officers and had a lot of support from the community. The fire and Police Commission did not care about that. So all right, they get rid of morality. The acting police chief, for whatever reasons makes a decision that he's not going to apply for the full time job that tells you a lot when the acting police chief, the guy who's got the job, decides that he doesn't want to apply. It tells you he understands how difficult it's going to be to get along with the Fire and police Commission. So they end up taking applications in most urban police departments. What you want is you want to promote from within. First of all, that's good for morale. Secondly, what that does is, it brings somebody that has an institutional memory. It brings them to the forefront. And there's a lot of good quality people that you know, I think could have been the police chief. In any event. So the interim police chief, the acting police chief, he decides he's not going to apply so of the various people that apply and make the final six. There's on Ly 11, internal candidate from the Milwaukee Police Department, and yesterday, the Fire and Police Commission announced they had winnowed the list to three. And That internal candidate didn't make the last three, so there will be an outsider that is going to be brought in. Now. First of all again, I think the most telling example of that is it shows that You have First of all Fire and police commission that is completely and totally divorced from the the police department that it that it runs that they don't think that there's anybody in that department that's capable of being promoted from within. So that's indication. Number one and number two. I think you also have this factor that just a lot of people inside the department. Recognize that it's an impossible task as long as you have this fire and police commission. So the three finalists one is a major from the Dallas Police Department who was demoted by the new chief. He he applied to be the police chief lost out in that power struggle, and now it seems to me he's looking to get out. You have a guy who no ties at all to Milwaukee. He's been a deputy chief with the Portland Police Department in Oregon. Before that, he's from Arizona. No clue at all about Milwaukee and then you have a supervisory agent with the FBI, who has Never work never worked as an urban police chief, But he at least has some ties to Milwaukee in that he grew up here and played, you know, basketball at Rufus King High School's 1984 state champion. So now he's with the FBI. He at least grew up in Milwaukee, so he knows where some of the streets are, presumably even though he has no experience as an urban police chief. Those are the three choices that you're left with. It is just mind boggling to me. Once again, you have no internal candidates. And believe me, that's that's a fact that's being known amount made being made known among the internal staff at the Milwaukee Police Department. This idea that Okay, now we're gonna have an outsider. Come in. And I mean, I understand you have the one guy that grew up in Milwaukee, but I mean, an outsider. To the workings of the police department and essentially is gonna have to start from square one at a time where the city of Milwaukee is on a pace for a record number of homicides, or at least the record number of homicides in the last 25 years, But the bigger story is to me. It just shows that there's a lot of qualified candidates. Who would be local who just recognized that the way Tom Barrettes, fire and police Commission runs this city. It is a complete and total loser. And people want no part of it. All right when we come back what happened last night? Oh, yeah. Nashville, Tennessee. Joe Biden, Donald Trump. Debate number two We will discuss.

Organization Seeks to Increase Voter Participation in America
"Cat. Calvin is the founder and executive director of Spread The Vote, a nonprofit organization that's working to increase voter turnout. Welcome to the program. Hi. Thanks for having me So One of the main things your organization is trying to do is close the gap between registered voters and voter turnout. How big of a gap are we talking about? Well about 83% of eligible voters in the country are registered. But we have an average turnout of 55% 15, maybe a little higher depending on the election, So there is a huge gap of tens of millions of voters who are registered. They've taken that first step but who have a hard time taking the many steps that it takes to actually get a ballot in So we hear a lot about voter registration drives. But why is that? Not enough? You know voter much drives a great their first step in every state except North Dakota. You have to be registered to vote. But the fact is, there are a lot of things that you have to do in between that So, for instance, one of the main things that spread the vote does is that we help people get ideas primarily in voter ID states. There are over 21 million eligible voters who don't have photo ID, but 36 states where it's required. So that means that you can look at states like Wisconsin, where there are over 300,000 registered voters who don't actually have the idea. They need to vote or 200,000, Virginia, etcetera. And so you know, that's just one big way that voter registration isn't actually looking at. What are all the other challenges you know, There's also transportation challenges. There's child care. We have a massive problem with discrimination against people with disabilities at the polls. You know, and then a huge, huge voter education gap. And so there's just a lot of things that we need to address between registration and turnout to make sure we're actually helping people explain a little bit more about the voter education gap that you see. Yeah. I mean, you know, it's interesting because I was listening to some of the questions that people had coming in. Also, I want to send bonus points to the Twitter who said that we should be doing rank choice voting because she's absolutely right. You know, the fact is that we don't We don't do a lot of civic education in schools anymore, And then we really don't do it after school, And so a lot of people just don't Really understand the voting process who they're voting for what we're voting for you. We do a tine of voter education and spread the vote. 77% of our clients have never voted before and had midterms. We had people in age ranging from 18 to 79 voting for the first time, and when they ask us questions or when we go, we get sort of thousands of questions that people just email us because we're an organization with vote in the name and it's Everything from. I don't know how I'm supposed to use this machine. I don't understand the difference between absentee voting and mail in voting in what's early voting. You know, I don't know what any of these positions are. Nobody knows what the comptroller is or what the board of supervisors is. You know, we get a lot of first time voters who we talk to you and they say I opened my ballot and I thought it was just going to be the president. But there were like 30 pages of things that I didn't know what I was supposed to do. I don't know what a ballot measure is. And so there's just a lot of sort of basic info. You know, there's also we get people who say I just open my mail in ballot and there's a bunch of pieces of paper here. I don't know what I'm supposed to do with that, you know, And so there's a lot of work that needs to be done. I'm just helping people understand what the process is. And how do you do it? How do you follow all these obstructions? And then when you look at, you know, people returning citizens the rules for returning citizens being able to vote or different everywhere, And there isn't a lot of information out about how people are supposed to know if they're eligible to vote again. How they become eligible. You know, people, Disabilities don't always know what all the requirements are and what accessibility requirements there are and what they're allowed to, You know, demand that they have it. They're polling place. And so there's just a lot of Really voting 101 information that people don't get. Well, we got this tweet from Benjamin, who says, I think the problem with voter apathy is that many people of you voting purely as a response to an agenda they did not set. It's important to stress to voters that they are just as much responsible for setting the agenda as they are for voting to set that agenda into motion, and I'm curious how much you hear from people about You know that that issue of you know? Look, I'm voting for something that I don't feel particularly a part off. Oh, absolutely. I mean, first of all, if we'd all been listening to Ralph Nader in the seventies, this would be a very different country because he basically was advocating for indivisible, right. He kept saying voting is just one day we have to be sure that we are keeping these politicians accountable that we're telling them what we want that we're making sure that they do it. And you know, one of the things that we try really hard to do now is remind people that voting is not the whole movement, but it's a big part of and that it is a thing. We have to do it once a year. Twice a year, however many times you vote in your community, but it is just one way. Of changing this democracy of setting the agenda, and so we have to still be taking to the streets. We have to still be calling into the police Commission meetings are going to City Council meetings. You know, we have to be finding and recruiting really amazing members of our community who we think would be great. You know, members of elected office and then supporting them. It's a lot more than voting that voting. Because we live in a democracy is a key part on I think when people understand I'm not just voting once a year and walking away and then someone else is making decisions, but that I'm helping to set those decisions and push those decisions and once a year voting is my way of grading how I think that those decisions were made and maybe hiring somebody new and firing someone excited, read, then it puts the power a lot more into the voters hands.

First Amendment rights, having said that ever since the death of George Flight in Minneapolis and the protests and the protests the incident sparked There has been a push by community leaders throughout the country to weaken, defund and abolish police departments in several cities. Locally, Officer MENSA has become the poster child for this movement due to his three officer involved shooting incidents.

But some community leaders believe he does. Should Mayor Barrett step in and blocked with Fire and police Commission from proceeding with their directives and possibly removing the chief from his position. Well, let me answer from two points of view from from the point of view of a rendering a legal opinion. There is language in the state statute establishing the essentially the authority to fire Police Commission that does give the mayor the authority to overrule a directive of the Fire Police Commission. Now, having said that I am not Lawyering town Baron. I've known him for 50 years since he was a LA clerk in federal court.

"Police Commission. Chief Alfonso Morales was given a set of directives things that he has to do if he wants to keep his job. It basically amounts to a long to do list Bunch of things that fire and police Commission says that he has to do here, some of them The commission has requested audits and additional information like files video records on the following incidents and topics. They want more information on the arrest of Milwaukee Bucks players Sterling Brown. They want more information on the shooting of Terry Davis. He was the guy that was opening his backdoor and police officers were chasing another man and the officers accidentally shot Terry Davis. The FCC wants additional information on the arrest of activist von Maze, which happened just in June. They also want an accounting of white tear gas and pepper spray were used during protests that happened. They also want the chief Teo draft, a community oriented policing standard operating procedure. They say there needs to be more community oriented policing. They've also ordered the chief To work with the fire and Police Commission on complaints and discipline and develop and implement a discipline matrix. They want consistency and how officers were disciplined. They also have ordered the chief to draft an implement an official policy to require if officers where face mastering the Corona virus pandemic, he's already telling officers to wear face mask by the way. They also said Morales will be re evaluated every six months. And as part of that evaluation, he must provide statistics and data on crime and arrest how they're implementing that community policing updates on the pursuit policy updates on reckless driving. 9 11 calls, dispatch Times management of overtime and plans to replace officers to retire. No, it doesn't stop there, though. The Fire and Police Commission also ordered that the chief must provide a full explanation of how he's vetted candidates for his command staff and those in an acting capacity more on this in a moment. Commission also wants an updated organ chart for the department. Commissioners want Morales to respond to them in a timely manner. Saying Morales and his staff must comply with all commission request within seven days of receipt unless the different deadline is set by the commission. Also, they want the chief to comply with all open records request made by the commission in a more timely fashion. They also said that the chief must appear virtually or in person at all. Regular commission meetings and subcommittee meetings. Unless he's unavailable, and then he must let them know. 24 hours ahead of time. Morales at his command staff were also ordered to immediately begin copying the executive director on all communications to the commissioner's, so they don't want Morales or staff writing to some commissioners and not others. Some of these things are things that they say they want accountability on. Some of these things were clearly things that are going to make the chief or any chief uncomfortable. I mean, he must attend All Fire and police Committee meeting's not only the meetings, but all the subcommittee meetings. Or he's in trouble. The chief's lawyer, spoke. After all this was handed down. He spoke to Scott Wars and W T. M. J. He said that the chief has already provided a lot of the information that I mentioned early on. He says that the chief will try to comply with all the directives that after review he finds to be legitimate or warranted. So Read between the lines. They don't think this is all legitimate heir warranted in the high powered attorney has indicated that this could be just the beginning of the fight. I found this interesting. Reggie Moore. The director of the city's Office of Violence Prevention, criticized the commission and what they did last night, saying the F PC has yet again presided over a poorly executed review that has lacked transparency, and he called for replacing the commissioners. Outright, get rid of the commissioner's, he's saying. So here's the deal. They given all these things out for the chief to Dio. I just read through a ton of things. You've got to do this. You got to do this. You got to do this, and a lot of them are within the next couple of weeks. There are two assistant police chief openings right now. One would oversee the administrative bureau. One would run the Criminal Investigative Bureau. The Fire and Police Commission approved the chief's choices to fill the openings. The Common Council Finance Committee, and the mayor's office has refused to pay the candidates What they should be paid. So these assistant chief openings are vacant. Why is it a big deal? Because the chief has just been told you've got 1000 things you need to do in the next two weeks and he doesn't have the administrative staff and the manpower that other chiefs have had to get it done. He doesn't have it. It's like I said before. It's like the chief is the coach of the team, and he's not allowed to hire any assistant coach is a coach LeFlore coach of the Packers come up with a game plan. Go win this game and no, you don't get any assistant coaches do it all on your own. How does this play out going to be very interesting to watch it? 3 26 and W. T. M J. Tom Newman has the W. T. M. J.

We want law and order. Is that too much to ask for? Well, I guess maybe and just recognize this is what's going on here. It is a concerted effort to force al morale is out. It is despicable. It is beneath contempt, and the members of the fire and Police Commission collectively should be ashamed of themselves or Jeff Wagner right.

"Am six forty John and Ken show. But we were just talking about immigration and customs enforcement in a case out of Maryland were two teenage MS, thirteen gang members, who ice wanted to deport last year, after they were detained an attempted murder case instead, eventually got transferred by the county. The county jail over to juvenile in juvenile detention people. Let them go ice was never noticed fide and they killed a fourteen year old girl. He's always going to be a snitch. They brutally murdered back here in LA county. One of the reasons that LA county sheriff Alex Vienna won the election. We talked about this just before the break was valid harvesting. There were extremely long lines of people election night, last November so much show that they had to continue to keep the polls open to accommodate all the people lined up, who we believe, were for lack of a better phrase because ballot harvesting something different but they were bell harvested to be there. Harvesting is when you go to someone's home and you say, hey, get about in the mail. You know what you should vote. I can help you talk about. Here's you to vote and I'll take it from you and return it to the registrar's office, the Democrats sent people to go door to door to convince them to fill out their mail ballots, and, and who to vote for, and they did this thousands and thousands and thousands of times. And then they got people out of their homes to go and register to vote because they changed the lawsuit could register on the day of voting. So they were guided over to the polls, and that's why Villanova would've lost because Jim McConnell had a pretty sizable. Lead on election night, and then in the days that followed it disappeared because of what we believe was these types of ballot harvesting steps taken by the activists Villanova got snuck in because of I'd call this legal cheating. So they wanted to sanctuary sheriff case, you don't know Jim McDonald, didn't like the state sanctuary laws. He said, you know, he tried to play the middle because they sent us very tenable situation with these activists breathing down all the time. But he, he made the point that if we don't tell us about the criminals. They're gonna go into communities and find them. Anyway, that's their job. Right. So, and if you let them out without reporting them to ice look what happened to Maryland. Fourteen year low for ten year old girl gets chopped up into pieces. Yep. So the first thing filling away, but did pretty much right after he was elected sheriff is no more cooperation with immigration and customs enforcement. They can't beat in the jails. But now something called the sheriff civilian oversight commission. They want to go further. They have new recommendations for the sheriff, basically, this means you don't do it Villanova. You're not getting our support next time. What is this not a real commission? This is not a government commission is it I don't know. It is some sort of an activist group. This is one of these things where it's described as a watchdog group. Yes, they also gun two times. But that's not that's not like it. LA. You have the police commission which really has power over the police department. I don't know what the hell this is Villanueva should stop allowing his employees to screen requests by ice to take custody of inmates for what's described as civil immigration violations. That would be deportable and should not let transport officers that contract with ice to set foot inside any department facilities. That's our latest recommendation, and there's one board member civilian oversight committee member Who Wasn't There at this meeting where they made this recommendation, but he had serious questions about this. And does not believe that the same is Robert Bonner a former administrative the DA, he said, this could erode public safety. You might allow people convicted of offenses, including child-sex-abuse rape, and kidnapping to remain in the community. Both course this is obvious. It's been obvious. All our lives. If everything turned upside down now, this is the open border crowd, that even goes a step further let everybody in the world come in. And then when they communicate commit crimes they should be treated like everyone else when they do their time, just released them into the community. We don't want anybody deported. So everybody gets to come to the US, nobody ever gets deported, even if they commit terrible crimes. And they have control of the sheriff's department right now. That's where we are in this town, nutty and out of control. This has gotten they guys their puppet this via the waiver will they can give their report, but he doesn't have to camp, but he doesn't he is. But, you know, again, they helped get him elected, don't we believe that. Yeah, they did a lot. Yeah. Devote turn act. And, you know, the thing is it used to be you could say, okay, you wait something horrible is going to happen a girl's gonna get chopped up into pieces, and then they'll see and they'll change their policy. But now it happens. Nobody cares. And they don't change their policy. And then the next girl get chopped up to pieces and no one's gonna care. No. And they won't change the policy. No worried about is that migrants who get sick. Why are we live with this more coming up? John and Ken KFI, Debra Mark has this each.

"Lebanon seven these be with you on this Wednesday. Happy hump day. Everybody got an hour left of my show before he handed off to Jeff Wagner, who's in the building and ready for action. I just saw him. Also girl scout cookies have made their way into the building. So try I'm trying my best to stay away from thin mints sugar, cookies and all the all the great flavors, but that that's happening. Now every Wednesday eleven o'clock hour eleven o seven to be exact she joins me to talk about public safety. I call her my law enforcement guru any Schwartz happy new year about the title guru. I think about that. All right. Well, you can I often let you pick your own title. So you tell me what you want me to call the police Princess, but I think since I left, you know, it's not as fun one of the reasons you're here every week is because you you are certainly attuned to what's happening law enforcement. And and I mentioned at the beginning of the show. Some breaking news some trouble concerning at the fire and police commission. Well, yeah, I was trying to decide steep. If I call it trouble. If I call it turmoil. Or if I say things are a bit of a a bit of a mess over there. What's going on? Kisha Butler who is the person that was put in the role as executive director at the fire and police commission right after Mary Nell Reagan left in April. Is now leaving as well. She is resigning. She's going to be moving to she can be moving out of state. So what does that maybe six months or so since she's been in that role? You know, a lot of times when we talk about the fine police Commissioner, I don't think that we tell people how important that body is those citizen review board will walk us through that. So because a lot of people don't know, and these are often just members of the community that assist the departments to make sure that things run smoothly. They work in policy and some of the hiring and firing decisions. Yeah. They're they're little I I would say that they're are a little more than that. They are the oversight body at the fire and police departments those are two huge agencies here in the city of Milwaukee. They have a budget of about two and a half million. I think is the last number that I recall for the for the FCC, and this is a stencil, especially Stephen post Ferguson policing, which is after August of two thousand fourteen people want accountability from their police department. You see this police chief chief Morales getting out there and releasing videos and doing all those kinds of things. But when we talk about accountability, it's not just the police chief there is a body that is created to be an oversight body. And right now, you have a have seven members you have at least one whose term is up. But she continues to sit on the on the board because they haven't named another another person yet another Commissioner. The physical space that the fire and police commission occupies in city hall. Now that sounds like an inside baseball thing. But it's not your citizen. You wanna go make a complaint you wanna do it in person? You wanna talk to somebody at the fire and police commission. How does that work? They don't have their own conference room to vote it to the police commission. So as long as employee relations isn't using it, I suppose you can use that one. But otherwise what you're talking to an investigator in the hallway of city hall to discuss your your issue with the police department of the fire department. Remember, they supervise both. But they don't just supervise. Maybe that's not that. I think that might be the wrong word. We know that they also do all the testing for law enforcement. They do over hiring for law enforcement and fire. They do they do the promotional exams for law enforcement and for for fire, and they hire all entry level employees who allowed efforts let electrical person to replace Placer at this point. I don't know I've come on the show before with other with other thoughts about who was going to replace who in different roles. I remember when we were talking about the need for a city emergency management director looked like Paulina Dahan was going to take over that role. She has resigned she is now part of the administration. So I don't know who the logical person is one of the challenges. We have with our fire and police commission is its members are chosen by the mayor. And if you look at best practices around the country, look at how other cities do this that is that is not the separation. And the independence that you want from a fire police commission Chicago found that out they ran into trouble. They they had a fair and police commission that was appointed by mayor Daley and reported a mayor Daley. What's a better solution to that that appointment process? Well in irony if you look at the Washington DC look at their office a police complaints, it's run by the former executive director of the Milwaukee fire and police commission. It's run by Mike Tobin, and they have seen tremendous success. The idea is that there is independence from that law enforcement agency. And from the mayor, however, one of the things that we see them do in DC that has been that has been very very positive for them is that they get input from the city council on a regular basis. They do community outreach efforts a lot of them. So that people understand that there's an oversight by the fact that this body is again going to be without an executive director is an issue could this impact. And I think he's done a pretty good job with this chief Alfonso Morales's willingness and desire to be better involve the community when that's really that link in some ways, you know, the chief is the one who has gotten out here chief Morales has gotten out there and talked about the community since day one. But again, he's not alone. He doesn't he doesn't do his job in a vacuum. There is this board. There is this body that is supposed to be assisting with that oversight. You know, the fire and police commission members a lot of people don't really know what they do. Besides we talked about the testing talked about those kinds of things we talk about the discipline reviews. They have access to every single every single because they have their very own. They have their own access to any body worn camera. Video any squad video any video of an incident that's up for discipline review. Those members can access it. I mean, this is this isn't just a panel that puts a rubber stamp or shouldn't be any Schwartz. Join me in studio as as as she said the change for the fire police Commissioner in Milwaukee. And I think it's a dangerous, especially when as I've given them credit for at least chief morale Morales and the police side has made some inroads in linking his department to the community. So one to watch there's some breaking news from anti Schwartz on the show after the break. I want to shift to Florida interesting development in the Marjorie stone Douglas shooting, the the now suspended Broward County sheriff, and he'll bring us the latest details on that right here on WTMJ WTMJ's mobile app. Just got.
