Defunding the police
"Abbott announced plans to freeze property taxes in cities that vote to defund there. Police departments. This comes after Austin officials voted last week to cut the city's police budget by by a a third third and and shipped shipped those those funds funds to to Social Social Services Services haven't haven't argued argued that that defending defending police police forces forces in in danger danger citizens citizens from from city city should should not not then then be able to raise taxes on well, This is not a difficult math problem to figure out if you do fun. Police departments get guess what police officers do. I believe this is a growing trend in in America today. The mayor of Los Angeles have proposed cutting the police budget there by $150 million in Colorado. There's a bill that would allow police officers to be sued. Sergeant Rob Pride is with the Fraternal Order of police, and he's a patrol sergeant in Colorado. Here's what he told ABC Action News in Tampa. There's officers in my department better Talking about wanting to get out of law enforcement early. That's just in his department. We just did a story about how San Joaquin County Sheriff's Department is looking for someone 100 officers, right, right, And that's a big No, no, that's that's a lot of that's a lot of need. Okay, that's that's just there. OK in in our neck of the woods. Then you talk about Colorado and you go across the country in fact, There's an outfit out there called the Police Executive Research Forum. They have reported that 63% of departments nationwide saw a decrease in applicants in the last five years. Okay, so this is a trend that goes back pre pandemic. In the last five years, people applying to be officers has been dropping significantly. Sergeant Pride says The recent efforts to defund police Department's that's only made matters worse will be relegated to B, a reactive police forces with no additional programs and no additional interaction other than To enforce the law in a rest. You know that's not a profession. I want to be a part of So Aubrey Aquino made some phone calls for us on this yesterday and talked to the folks at the Sacramento Police Department. And they say they have not seen a drop off that it's remained consistent both in applications and a number of officers retiring over the years. The requirements to be a police officer have gotten more stringent. I mean, more officers are required, especially if they're going to be moving up the ranks, toe have college degrees or additional training. So that was happening pre pandemic right And then after the pandemic and the riots and moved to defund, a lot of them are just saying, You know what? I'm I'm a year away from retirement. I've got a lot of time on the books for sick time and leave amount, and then you're in Colorado and they say, Way to say I could get sued. Wait, wait a minute here. I don't know if I want.

Police Shootings: The Data and the Damage Done
"It's been five years since the high profile shootings of several unarmed black teenagers and men which launched the black lives matter movement. Thousands of people protested saying cops a using unnecessary force. The death sparked national debate. About what exactly was going on in in police departments with some saying this is a systemic problem and other saying no that's not right. A recent Pew survey found that around around forty percent of the public and about two-thirds of offices interviewed thought that these deaths were just quote isolated incidents this whole anti-police rhetoric is based on a lie. There is no data. There's no research that proves any of that nonsense none but despite this police departments have been doing all kinds of things to respond to the deaths and the protests police departments are employing. A new tactic body mounted video camera. Sacramento Police Department has been doing implicit bias. Training officers and recruits are required to attend an eight hour implicit bias. Course course meanwhile it feels like we're still seeing a lot of black people being killed at the hands of police like just a few weeks ago. Brad Attach Yana. Jefferson was shot in her home in Texas. Jefferson had been playing video games with her eight year old nephew. She was gunned down right in front of him so today on the show. What can you research tell us about police shootings in the US? And what can police departments be doing to save. Lives do implicit bias. Training Body Cams actually help when it comes to police shootings there are a lot of opinions. But then there's science okay so when you want to know the science of what is happening with all these police shootings you have to know that. We don't have good data here as no official database that tallies all the people in the US who was shot and killed by police so without officials stats media organizations like The Washington Post have started counting. And here's what they found about a thousand people in the US a killed by police each year. Roughly half of those don't have a gun and while all white people do get killed by cops your two to three times more likely to be killed by police in the US. If you're black an every researcher that we spoke told us that this wasn't just on the cops so for example is difference is partly explained by the fact that because of the history of this country black people are more likely to live in places with gun violence and cops a more likely to be assigned to these neighborhoods. So when idea is that if a lot of cops are interacting and with more black people than white people in the rare times that cops do draw their weapons. There's a greater chance that the person on the other end of the barrel will be black eh but lots of people in the. US think that something else is going on here to racial bias or racism among cops ups. So how widespread is that what feels like a messy and politically charged. Question can actually be answered with science. Hi My name is Jennifer Eberhardt and I work at Stanford. University Jennifer is a professor of social psychology. The and in two thousand fourteen. She started working with the Oakland police. Department to analyze their data on stops and searches and she was basically asking the question. But when you look at the data cops stopping and searching more black people. She looked at more than twenty thousand stops from five hundred police officers and she said there was a clear pattern. They stopped way. More African Americans in the same was true for the searches and when they when when they did the searches like what did they find. Were black people like more likely to have weapons or drugs no no. They weren't in Oakland Oakland. Black men was searched four times more often than white men despite the fact they would know more likely to have weapons or drugs. The white guys a similar trend was found for Latinos. And this isn't just Oakland. One big study published just the analyzed. Almost a hundred million police stops from twenty eight different states all across the the US and they found similar patents and these differences. They often stuck around. Even after you control for the crime rate

"I'm Alex Helmick. There's no win here. There's no win here. That's heavier becera. California's attorney general in a lengthy press conference today. Bizarre announced his office would not criminally charged a to Sacramento police officers who shot and killed Steph on Clark, the twenty two year old unarmed black man was shot multiple times in March last year. Well, and he's grandmother's backyard. What officers said they thought was a gun turned out to be a cell phone. Of course, it was a tough call. These are all tough costs. It's never easy, but we have to do the job. That's put before us. That job includes a report from the attorney general's office that outlines the reasons why the shooting was justified he came just days after Sacramento's district. Attorney cleared the officers after the announcement the US department of Justice said it will now examine whether the shooting violated Clark's federal civil rights saver law. Professor Robert Weisberg. Joins us. And professor I want to get to the details of bazaars report. But first, what's your reaction to all this, especially the DOJ getting involved? I was somewhat surprised that the US attorney spoke out at this point. And so quickly after the DA's in the attorney general's decision, but they faded we'll have to do their own investigation and the bar for a federal criminal charges really really high. So I don't think we can predict that this is going to lead to a federal indictment in his review. Sarah said the evidence showed that Clark had committed several unlawful acts, which is why police were called in the first place. And he said Clark didn't follow officers commands, he advanced towards them. He assumed a shooting position in officers believed that they were in danger. There is video of this shooting is that what you see in the video do law enforcement officials just look at this differently. Well, they certainly read cues from suspects in a way. That other people may not because of their experience. The main thing to emphasize is that the standard that has to be met for a state case, and they'd be even more. So for federal cases, really really high. It has to be shown not only that in this case. Mr Clark, did not pose a threat of deadly force. He obviously didn't. But that it was so obvious that he didn't pose a threat of deadly force that it was completely irrational unreasonable will legal jargon would be cops to fear deadly force or violent force from him. And these are very hard cases to win. And there was a criminal prosecutions against the police the Sacramento police say it's still reviewing the officers actions could discipline them but being cleared by the county DA in the state AG must carry weight in that decision. Do you anticipate any department action here attorney general for Sarah already working with chief Han and mayor Steinberg has put out a series of recommendations for reforms within the training protocol for this the Sacramento police, and I think a clear eye towards getting them out around the state, more, generally? So I think it's quite possible that we're gonna see tightening up more training and so on and so on. But that's that's quite independent of any actual legal action against the officers. Do you think the Sarah's report and with what happened with the Sacramento county DA damages a civil case the Clark family has filed a twenty million dollar wrongful death suit, not necessarily? I don't think it would preclude that. And this could be a case that settles at a very large damage number Stanford law, professor Robert Weisberg. Thank you so much for speaking with us. Thank you.

"I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm David Greene. Almost one year after Sacramento police shot and killed twenty two year old Stefan Clark, while he was unarmed in his grandmother's backyard the Sacramento district. Attorney announced that the two officers involved will not face criminal charges was a crime committed. There's no question. Human being died. But when we look at the facts and the law, and we follow our ethical responsibility the answer to that question is does officers fired twenty shots at Clark. And the autopsy showed he was hit by at least seven bullets yesterday. I spoke to Tanya phase on she's head of the black lives matter chapter in Sacramento, and I began our conversation by asking her if she saw the DA's argument in making this decision, we have a very weak use of force policy. So I expected her to come out with the announcement that she was not going to file charges against the officers that killed Stefan. Based on the fact that she was following that use of force policy. So yeah, I could see why she came out with that. But it doesn't mean that it's the correct. Announcement that she should have made. She brought up things like that the officers thought that Stefan Clarke had a gun. They may have seen a flash of light from a gun. I mean, these are the kinds of things that you're saying make you understand why she came to this decision. But you're saying it wasn't correct. What helped me understand exactly what I'm saying that the use of force policy is very weak. And it's very subjective. So if you say that you fear for your life, then it validates if you kill somebody. But you can't show physical tools the feared for your life. So she hasn't filed charges on any of the officers because of these types of use of force policies, you're saying it is too easy for a police officer to say I feared for my life. And that that helps them avoid any sort of accountability. Exactly. The district attorney released a lot. I mean there were text messages. There were toxicology reports showing things like marijuana and alcohol and Stefan Clark system. There were other details seeming to show he was afraid of being arrested for domestic violence. I mean, what was it appropriate for the public to learn more about this young man, not those items nothing that didn't pertain to the date of the incident. You know, her saying that they investigated the cell phone saying that she went to the Texan and showing the tax and insane. The name of his children's mother several times publicly, and then, you know, finally saying that he may have tried to or wanted to kill himself and then implying after that that might have been suicide by cop. It was just way too much information. And she didn't just violated his privacy. She violated his family and the mother of his children's privacy. So that was really problematic. Really disrespectful. The is there an argument that she was being totally transparent in a case like this in wanting to show the public everything that she and investigators knew about the man who police were confronting absolutely not she wasn't being transparent because if that was an unbiased investigation, and we would have seen the police officers phone records, and if they have any domestic violence situations, and what can. Drugs were in their system in you know, what was their state of mind? We would have gotten all the information. It would have only pertained to what happened on the eighteenth not anything before that you think it's important for the public to learn much more about these two officers, and I think the public should know everything about these officers. I think every officer that kills somebody especially in a city where it's happening every two to three months, we should be scrutinizing every single thing in their pass because we don't need them on the streets policing as or driving in our neighborhoods. If they're going to be abusive toward us or kill us. You talked about California in your mind, having very weak use of force laws and one of the things to change. It sounds like you have a governor right now who's very open to that. Governor Gavin Newsom issued a statement calling for systemic reforms to the criminal Justice system in the state. What exactly would you like to see happen to the law? I think the main thing that we need to see because a lot of bills are passed in, you know, they move as like, you know, an eighth of an inch closer to where we need to be. But I think what's really important is if we create new policy that attached to each policy are the consequences of what's going to happen. If those policies are violated. So if we get new laws there needs to be consequences attached, and once officers start getting fired or getting charged and convicted for murdering people, then they're not gonna probably kill us as often as they do. But right now, we haven't seen that ever. So I think that's what gives them the green light to go. Go ahead and do what they want. What about the argument you often hear that? If you put too many consequences into the law that it could hamstring police. Causing them to to not be able to do their jobs as effectively to keep neighborhoods safe. I think that's ridiculous. I think that sounds ridiculous every job that you have you have rules. And then there's consequences to those rules if they're broken. And so it shouldn't be any different for them actually should be a higher standard for them. Because one we're paying for their salaries to they are supposed to be the ones defending the law. So I mean, it just doesn't make sense that you know, you would be able to be above the law. If you are also defending the law, could you just talk about this moment in in the movement. I just listen to you and others talk about the law and making changes to the law to try and prevent deaths like this in the future. Is that a new priority or or is there more energy behind changing the law? There's a moment of transition when it comes to the black lives matter movement, and how you respond to killings like this are chapter is more of an abolitionist chapter. We're not reformists, but we understand that you can't change something overnight. So we need to be finding ways and building structures for us to take care of ourselves in our community. So if there's a de-escalation, you know, situation that's happening. Then we need to be relying on each other instead of calling the police, so I think that we need to throw the kitchen sink at this. We all need to be trying to pursue our ideas and fight with everything that we have because not one thing is going to change changes in changing the laws, and they're gonna change it. But it's going to definitely help. Tiny phase on is head of the black lives matter chapter in Sacramento that is where the fun Clark was shot and killed by police last March yesterday Sacramento police arrested eighty.

Almost one year after Sacramento police shot and killed twenty two year old Stefan Clark, while he was unarmed and his grandmother's backyard the Sacramento district. Attorney announced that the two officers involved will not face criminal charges was a crime committed. There's no question. Human being died. But when we look at the facts and the law, and we follow our ethical responsibility the answer to that question is no officers fired twenty shots at Clark. And the autopsy showed he was hit by at least seven bullets yesterday. I spoke to Tanya phase on she's head of the black lives matter chapter in Sacramento, and I began our conversation by asking her if she saw the DA's argument in making this decision, we have a very weak use of force policy. So I expected her to come out with the announcement that she was not going to file charges against the officers that killed Stefan. Based on the fact that she was falling that use of force policy. So yeah, I could see why she came out with that. But it doesn't mean that it's the correct. Announcement that she should have made. She brought up things like that the officers thought that Stefan Clarke had a gun that they may have seen a flash of light from a gun. I mean, these are the kinds of things that you're saying make you understand why she came to this decision. But you're saying it wasn't correct. What help me understand exactly what you mean saying that the use of force policy is very weak. And it's very subjective. So if you say that you fear for your life, then it validates if you kill somebody. But you can't show physical Tuesday you feared for your life. So she hasn't filed charges on any of the officers because of these types of use of force policies, you're saying it is too easy for a police officer to say I feared for my life. And that that helps them avoid any sort of accountability. Exactly the district attorney released a lot. I mean there were text messages. There were toxicology reports showing things like marijuana and alcohol and Stefan Clark system. There were other details seeming to show he was afraid of being arrested for domestic violence. I mean, what was it appropriate for the public to learn more about this young man, not those items nothing that didn't pertain to the date of the incident. You know heard saying that they investigated the cell phone saying that she went to the Texan and showing the tax in insane. The name of his children's mother several times publicly, and then you know, finally saying that. He may have tried to or wanted to kill himself and then implying after that that might have been suicide by cop. It was just way too much information and she didn't violate his privacy. She violated his family and the mother of his children's privacy. So that was really problematic really disrespectful. Is there an argument that she was being just totally transparent in a case like this in wanting to show the public everything that she and investigators knew about the man who police were confronting absolutely not she wasn't being transparent because if that was an unbiased investigation, and we would have seen the police officers phone records, and if they have any domestic violence situations, and what kind of drugs were in their system. And you know, what was your state of mind, we would have gotten all the information. And it would have only pertained to what happened on the eighteenth not anything before that you think it's important for the public to learn much more about these two officers, and I think the public should know everything about these officers. I think every officer that kills somebody especially in a city where it's happening every two to three months, we should be scrutinizing every single thing in their pass because we don't need them on the streets policing or driving in our neighborhoods. If they're going to be abusive toward us or kill us. You talked about California in your mind, having very weak use of force laws and wanting things to change. It sounds like you have a governor right now who's very open to that. Governor Gavin Newsom issued a statement calling for systemic reforms to the criminal Justice system in the state. What exactly would you like to see happen to the law? I think the main thing that we need to see because a lot of bills are passed in. You know, they move like an eighth of an inch closer to where we need to be. But I think what's really important is if we create new policy that attached to each policy are the consequences of what's going to happen. If those policies are violated. So if we get new laws there needs to be consequences attached in once officers start getting fired or getting charged and convicted from marine people, then they're not gonna probably kill us as often as they do. But right now, we haven't seen that ever. So I think that's what gives them, you know, the green light to go. Oh head and and do what they want. What about the argument you often hear that? If you put too many consequences into the law that it could hamstring police. Causing them to to not be able to do their jobs as effectively to keep neighborhoods safe. I think that's ridiculous. I think that sounds ridiculous every job that you have you have rules. And then there's consequences to those rules if there are broken, and so it shouldn't be any different for them actually should be a higher standard for them. Because one we're paying for their salaries to they are supposed to be the ones defending the law. So. I mean, it just doesn't make sense that you know, you would be able to be above the law. If you are also defending the law, could you just talk about this moment in the movement. I just listened to you and others talk about the law and making changes to the law to try and prevent deaths like this in the future. Is that a new priority, or or is there more energy behind changing the laws as a moment of transition when it comes to the black lives matter movement, and how you respond to killings like this are chapter is more of an abolitionist chapter. We're not reformists, but we understand that you can't change something overnight. So we need to be finding ways and building structures for us to take care of ourselves in our community. So if there is a de-escalation situation that's happening. Then we need to be relying on each other instead of calling the police, so I think that we need to throw the kitchen sink at this. We all need to be trying to pursue ideas and fight with everything that we have because not one thing is going to change his and changing the laws are going to change it. But it's going to definitely help. Tiny phase on is head of the black lives matter chapter in Sacramento that is where Stefan Clark was shot and killed by police last March yesterday Sacramento police arrested eighty four people following a protest March.
