Proposition 25: Cash Bail
"Political correspondent Marissa Lagos is covering prop twenty five for cake. And she's also the CO host of the podcast political breakdown. Welcome Russa Pale, Libya. I. Can you take us through how the cash bail bond system works in California now? Yes. To do this I am going to make you an accused Felon Olivia Allen Price Right. So you're walking down the street in San Mateo County. You, get arrested on suspicion of possession for sale of a controlled substance. This wouldn't be like you have a little wheat in your bag. This would be like maybe you got a bunch hair win or they think you do. The bill for that is going to be set at twenty five thousand dollars just by the schedule that exists in San Mateo County. So the officers would arrest you and either you would have to over twenty five grand to the county to secure release or possibly depending on how big of a drug dealer they think you are. They might make before a judge who could either lower or increase that twenty five thousand. Dollars say you don't have twenty five grand laying around I mean really who does right? You would then decide whether you're going to stay in jail until you can get a trial set or you might call a bail bonds agency and what they would do is essentially guarantee the county that they would pay that twenty five grand if you skipped out on your case. So if you didn't come back for your trial dates. In exchange for that, you would have to pay them ten percent of that amount. So twenty five, hundred dollars. If you have the twenty five grand to post your own bail, you would get that money back regardless of whether you got convicted of the crime or the charges got dropped or you. Were found to be innocent. You would just get that money the just there to make sure you show up at trial. However, if you didn't have that kind of cashing around and you had to go through a bail bond agent that twenty, five, hundred dollars that you gave them to secure your bond, you would forfeit, you would never get that money back. The whole cash bail system has been under fire for a long time for being inequitable give us an example of how that inequity plays out. Look people who have been accused of very violent crimes up to murder can sometimes post bail if they have the means but a lot of people end up languishing behind bars for really minor crimes because they just don't have the money their families don't have the money and disproportionately study after study shows these tend be black and Brown people. If you can't pay that bail amount. You can't go to work. You might lose custody of your kid by losing your work. You might not be able to pay your rent. So what critics of the system say is that it kind of perpetuates the cycle of poverty. And potentially leads more people into crime or can lead people to plead guilty to things that they did not do or that they might have a good chance of fighting because they essentially just WanNa get out of jail and get back to their lives.

School districts can apply for an exemption to let in person classes resume sooner. But the governor reiterated. We already know how to stop this pandemic and get all of our kids back on campus. The one thing we have the power to do To get our kids back into school is look at this list again. Where a mask physically distance washed your hands, preschools, daycare and day camps can remain open. The reality is most school districts already planned to reopen with distance learning only, But this order ensures that for most California families, the new school year will pick up where the last one left off learning
California shuts down bars, indoor dining as COVID-19 cases surge
"Dining again and taking other steps in the hardest hit counties, including most of the Bay Area Whatever California had been doing the last few months is no longer working with Corona virus. Positivity rates hospitalizations in I C U cases still spiking ever higher in covert 19 deaths continuing to mount So Governor Newsome is taking the state back to where it was in the spring, ordering all 58 counties to close down indoor activities that had been allowed to reopen restaurants, Winery's tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers. Zoos and museums, card rooms on the shuttering of all bars. This is in every county in the state of California, not just the counties that were on the monitoring less. And for the 31 counties on that watch list, which includes the entire Bay area except San Francisco and San Mateo counties. There are additional restrictions. Houses of worship, hair and nail salons. Jim's non essential offices and indoor malls must close again. The governor also said there are new rules coming regarding school safety, namely, contact sports choirs in school buses. The governor would not acknowledge the confusion and frustration of so many Californians about the way this is being handled. Even after being reminded by reporters. He's the guy in charge well aware of my responsibilities. Well aware of the dynamic that is a status large is ours. He reiterated the best way to control the pandemic until there's a vaccine is toe wear masks, wash hands and watch your distance. Doug Sovereign,
Newsom orders California to shut down indoor activities, all bar operations
"And for Rebecca Corral with covert 19. Running rampant in California Governor Newsome is dialing back statewide, shutting down sectors of the economy that had been allowed to reopen. Hey, CBS Political reporter dug. Sovereign is joining us live and says that includes all bars, all indoor dining in many counties. The closures extend far beyond that, and I was watching a tweet this out as the governor was making the announcement, Doug and it feels like we're going back to the starting line. Almost Boy, it sure does Dan and it's pretty frustrating to a lot of people. I mean the corona viruses unchecked in the Golden State, the hospitalization and I see you numbers continue to move in the wrong direction. The positivity rate is approaching 8%. And Governor Gavin Newsom said today it is time to pull back and no longer just on a county by county basis. We are announcing additional statewide actions as it relates to our state home order here in the state of California. We are now effectively rather effective today required all counties to close their indoor act activities there indoor operations in every county, not just the 31 or so now on the state watch list. All bars must close gnome or indoor dining, movie theaters, family entertainment centers or winery tasting rooms and in those counties where the things are worst, covering more than 80% of California's people. There are further shutdowns, houses of worship, Hera nail salons, gyms and fitness centers. Malls. Non essential offices must all closed down again in the Bay Area. That list includes Alameda Contra Acosta Marin. Napa, Santa Clara Solano in Sonoma County. So in other words everywhere in the Bay Area except San Francisco and San Mateo counties, I pressed the Governor Dan about the confusion regarding restaurants in Alameda County over the last few days, and the general level of frustration among so many people about what's open and what isn't what's safe and what isn't. He acknowledged His responsibility is leader of the state. But he said too many people are just not acting with common sense. We all need to wear masks and keep a safe distance went outside reporting live Doug Sovereign, KCBS dog real quick. Also, did he mention anything about schools because classes were supposed to start in about a month. Is he going to step in on that? Or is he going to leave that to local communities? Well again a little bit of confusion there because it's some of both. He was asked a couple of times about the schools and again, as you said. No different districts are handling it differently. Some are shutting down completely doing everything remotely. Others are doing hybrids. He suggested that there's further guidance coming from the state, although he leaves it to local districts to make decisions. He congratulated Los Angeles, for example, on deciding tohave all remote schools. This fall, he said. There's some more guidance coming in the next few days from from the state regarding mask wearing at school's school buses, sports certain safety measures that will have to be taken if schools do want to reopen in person in part, or even more than in part in some district. So while he's still saying it's it's a district by district decision, the state is going to put some new mandates in place, so that's districts that do allow in person education this fall. We're going to have some stricter rules to follow. All right. Thanks very much. KCBS is Doug sovereign. You can follow him on Twitter to today with the latest at sovereign nation. Meanwhile, in
"Let's start the conversation by talking. About what information is getting out in the first place. It's hard to get accurate. Data about the virus is spread out of hospitals and clinics sin. So much happening so quickly. So if data and facts about the pandemic can't actually be recorded or communicated adequately. How do we know what information to trust? Well as you say Mike. It's hard to know because the information is coming so quickly because we're all on such high alert or so emotionally primed to react everything and because the whole danger of covert nineteen is that it's a new virus. We fundamentally don't understand it. That said the way a triage information is we know stuff that's coming directly from the World Health Organization and the CDC is the best. We've got trusted news. Organizations are giving us the best information they can. There are a whole lot of scientists out there trying to give us the best information they can swatting down false rumors. So there's a lot of good stuff in a massive flow and there's some bad stuff coming into nick. How should people put this information? Therre getting into context one of the things that I've been looking at and refreshing and I'm sure lots of our listeners have been to as Johns Hopkins website that shows Total confirmed cases around the globe as well as deaths from Corona virus and total recovered folks. And the thing is just by refreshing those numbers each day. It's it's rather alarming to see Even the county level here you know I've been monitoring Santa Clara and San Mateo County where I happened to live and and we see these numbers. Come OUT EVERY DAY. But it's it seems like it's difficult to put that into context when there is a lack of testing going on Particularly in the United States. And it's hard to know. How is this good? Is this bad thing scaling? Downward how should people be thinking about it with regards to context? Well I I would say that. You don't need to be constantly checking. I think because we're all at home. We're all obsessed in rural scared where maybe taking on too much of the burden of having perfect information and too much the burden of feeling like we need to really understand everything that is happening because the truth is will you and I need to do for ourselves what we need to do for our communities we need to do as reporters doesn't change based on the Johns Hopkins Chart Everyday or even every three days we know we're in a terrible situation where we have to socially distance take every precaution to the best reporting that we possibly can so. That's one thing I would say. I think there's a risk for a lot of people becoming emotionally debilitated by spending too much time seeking out perfect up to the second information when that's not what most of us need the second thing is. There's a very good question you just asked which is impossible to answer. Which is the main thing we're looking at in the main thing we're thinking that is the infection rate which until we have universal testing means almost nothing is just a proxy for the number of tests in any given area. It's basically the number. It's the number of people who are infected multiplied by the prevalence of tests and tests have been distributed in different places. Why does the pandemic looks so much worse in New York City today as we talk than in other places partly it's spread there? It's a very dense area. Bad luck started bear. Lots of people come through there and also it's one of the first places that had lots of castes. So it's very hard to read that particular line of data specifically as well well in with particular note towards testing and perfect information We heard The president bragging this week about how our testing numbers are up. And how they're better than South Korea's numbers but of course that's a flawed count because what we really need to know is testing per capita. We have a lot more people in this country than we do in South Korea and that really makes me think that this is an interesting thing to talk about because so many Americans are getting their information about the spread of the virus directly from the White House every day. There is a briefing in everyday. Millions of people are watching. So can we examine to what extent the president's comments in general have contributed to the spread of misinformation? I mean they've played a major role in the spread of misinformation starting from the very beginning where he said we had a completely under control. There's one case from China he no. That's in January. Two it will disappear. There's a series of factually incorrect statements that he made from January through the middle of March. That were contradicted by the scientists epidemiologists in the middle of March. He seemed to understand that it was in his political interest to start taking this more seriously and his tone changed with that. I believe it was the press conference on March twelfth or March Thirteenth The sort of the somber one where he didn't seem like he had has focused but where he actually seemed to have changed the way he was looking at this from a political nuisance to a serious issue that he had to deal with. But since then you're right he's gone back and forth and he has as his once said a whole bunch of things that aren't true he's been a little more excited about chloroquine than the scientists should be. He's been a little more enthusiastic about our response than maybe he should be and his statement that we should go back to work by aced Easter. If it holds people do actually go back to work on eastern if a miracle has it occurred between now and then that will be extremely dangerous so he has he has poisoned the information ecosphere on the other hand he has started also to point in the right direction. How so in that? He is now clearly focused on this working on it. And he's not denying it. He's no longer tweeting. Statistics about how much worse the flu is right. He now clearly recognizes that. This is a risk the American economy or risk to his reelection and a risk to all of us to our health. That leads me to my next question. Which is that. We're also receiving information from government outside of the United States right now and I'm wondering how much of that you think that we should sort of take at face. Value China in particular comes to mind because China's exposure to this was on the early curve of things now there are some reports suggesting that China could be getting back to work sooner than the US. And I'm wondering given the flow of information that traditionally we've had out of China how much you believe we can trust that right now. I trust the numbers in China. The question is do we trust the China got the Krona virus under control? I would say I do believe that I mean the story of information in China is fascinating because in the very beginning. There's the authoritarian blocking of information right and prosecuting people who are telling the truth about it and famously doctors who by province but I actually think that China has played since that moment a very responsible global role both within taken incredibly strong action that then quiets down the pandemic at home and then sharing resources with the world. Now there have been off a moment. The Press Secretary for Xi Jinping tweeted out some conspiracy theory nonsense about the US creating the virus. That was utterly despicable but as for the numbers I do trust that there has been substantial decline in China both because the Chinese government reporting those. But it's also the World Health Organization is over there too so The president and the White House in general have expressed a great distrust of the mainstream media. Of course we work in medium. We feel this every day They're also a lot of people who support the president in his policies who share that mistrust of the media In what ways is this general mistrust of the mainstream media affecting the spread of bad information and Is it sort of inhibiting the spread of good information? Oh Yeah it's it's extremely unfortunate one of the most tragic consequences of not just the trump administration but of the last ten years has been the decline in trust in mainstream journalism. And so now you can see that. A percentage of Republicans who believe that Corona virus is a great threat to this nation is much lower than the percentage of Democrats and that's in part because society has been filtered into a subset of people who read the free balanced press. That Myers a part of and people who don't and the breakdown of the trust that our profession had as absolutely made it harder for people to get good information. There was a period the first two weeks of March which were crucial weeks in this period when we go back and we tell the story of Krahn virus in the United States of America if we had acted on February fifteenth the way we acted on March fifteenth thousands tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of lives would be now. Why didn't we act on February fifteenth reactive on March Fifteenth? There are a lot of reasons but one of them was that there was a sense that half the country didn't trust that this was a real thing and that there were a lot of right wing pundits and people on Fox News and to some degree the president himself saying that this is the media trying to bring down trump which it was not but because that story was believed absolutely helped slow down our response. That's quite unfortunate nick to you that this kind of I don't know partisanship misinformation and distrust is also going to affect the way that we approach potential. Antibodies vaccines and cures for this. I hope not I mean my hope is that you the whole world is going to be different when this is over. All sorts of things are going to be changed from the way we organize our societies to the way we think about working from home to a million different things are GonNa Change. One thing that I hope happens. Maybe it's an opportunity for journalism to rebuild. Its trust with the public. Maybe when this is over people who didn't trust the New York Times because they think it's too partisan will realize that whatever you think of the politics of the editorial board of New York Times that the science reporting has been spot on right or if you think that the Atlantic is too critical of your favorite political candidates. You'll realize oh wait. They've done really tremendous reporting on corona virus. So it's possible that the mainstream press will win some of its
