The Connection Between Violent Crime and Marijuana Usage

"I got Sean sent me an article about marijuana usage in its residual effects. And just because, you know, correlation denied always mean causation, but at least you have the facts and understanding, you know, according to an article called cannabis causes psychosis, a psychosis caused violence written by a gentleman, a doctor named Alex berenson on May 25th in an article he describes some of the correlations between marijuana usage and violent criminals. Mister, I don't like even like to say the guy's name, but it was confirmed that the shooter and Yuval di had issues with using marijuana. Don't know how much he used, but he was upset because his grandmother and mother allegedly would not let him use marijuana. Nicholas Cruz, which is a Florida high school shooter, was heavily used in marijuana, and that's what he told the police in the police interview. Devin Patrick Kelly, who shot up a Texas church and killed 26 people on 2017 before, you know, obviously killing himself had a THC in his system when he died, Darryl Brooks junior last seen allegedly racing through the walk of Christmas parade, self described as a stoner and here's some statistical data that may become relevant. It says, meanwhile, the cities like Portland, Oregon, have suffered an explosion in violence, following the legalization of cannabis.

"If you'd heard anything like that. Dennis, thank you so much for the call. I have heard things like that, but I haven't been able to verify it. You know, I know some people that smoke weed and I know some of them have some issues, and I don't know if the issues, the weed, the suppressing issues of the weed, it's causing the issues. You know, it's hard to tell, but Dennis, I would not be surprised if there is a correlation because marijuana on a mass scale now they're putting all kinds of stuff and we now, especially if you buy into it legally, who knows what is causing any people, you know? I smoked weed when I was younger. You know, I'm grown now after I left the police department, I could have smoked weed if I wanted to. But I want nothing to do with marijuana. I just personally don't want nothing to do with it. I think medical marijuana is a great tool to be used in a medical field. I've always natural medicine, but you know, the recreational smoking of marijuana, people do too much of it. And it could make you crazy. I'm not sure, but I'm going to do my research Dennis and I'll let the audience know what I find. After I get a little more deep in the research line one, welcome to the acetate of show. Hello officer, David. I'm a long time caller for Larry elders, my buddy and Carl Jackson. And I've been listening to you and enjoying your show. Marijuana, some people have better detox mechanism. They have more software in your system. You've got two kids that get vaccinated and one gets off to 16,001 dozen. So it affects different people's brain. I heard there's mercury in it as well. You may want to. So it does cause some kind of disciplinary behavior in some people not all. But that's not the reason I call the reason I call this the school shooting in Texas is they politicize this tyranny government is not a democratic government. I used to be a Democrat for many years. I didn't know what I was doing. I switched and I was used to hate Trump, but I started listening to you guys very old circle of law and I got educated and now I know this government that we have not as tyranny. Everything they do is politicizing they're trying to get control. If they care about kids, they want to have a chemical castration of kids and they don't say the kids or community kids. And as far as controlling the guns, the schools and whatnot, the shootings are not just isolated to schools. There's churches and whatnot. There's everywhere. I think people should.

How to Build Positive Relationships

"I really do hope you guys are heading into an incredible weekend. And that you are enjoying spending as much time as you can with your family, while you can. And for those of you who don't have a family, you need to spend time with the lord. And the lord will feel the void that you may have or that you believe you may have. Because. Just because a person is your family member or person is not your family member, does not mean that you can't build quality relationships with other people. I've been living in Arizona away from my family, all my family living for work, Texas, or mostly north Texas area, and I have been able to develop plenty of quality relationships, people that live here in Arizona, I like my family. So don't ever feel like just because you can folk ain't around or you don't have your kinfolk to lean on, that you can not develop positive relationships and be happy and have people that are connected to you as in the same ways that some people use their families. But if you do have a family, then love your family,

I know people that got hundreds of guns. How are you going to get that? And then if you do, you know how much money first of all, you know how much money is made in firearms, we got 400 million firearms in this country. That's an economy that's reliable. Everybody needs guns. People continue consistently by guns. Everybody needs ammo. They do it for training. They do it for shooting purpose. They do it for hunting. There are so much money made in the industry. You're going to cut off, you're going to cut off a money making industry like that because of what? You know, now what are they going to give us water guns? You know, if you get an electric guns, I mean, you got to be, you got to be out of your mind. People are not going to listen. And just say that all of us listen because we become dumb one day and we don't care about our freedoms and our God given rights and we decide to give them our guns. They're not going to pay fair market value for them. So all of the money you spent on them guns, the tens of $1000 you may have spent on guns over your lifetime is going to be poo pooed because they're not going to give you the money for them. Then do you think ray ray and pooky and do you think Zach and Zaire is going to turn in their guns if they're illegally in possession of firearms? God, I can't believe these politicians are stupid.

What You Need to Know About Guns

"If you do not think that this is huge and that if we lose rights to our guns, that this is the beginning of the end, this is a slippery slope. The news is already pushed propaganda enough to fool half of the people in America. Half of the people in America don't have any idea the ballistics of an AR-15, they have, they have zero idea of the amount of shootings that are done every year from an air for team versus a handgun versus the people getting stabbed to death versus people having heart attacks. People, there are people in this country that probably believe that all of the deaths that occur in this country are due to handguns. A majority of the deaths are due to handguns. That's not even true, you know, medical malpractice killed more people than just about anything I can think of about 400,000 people at the higher end by 400,000 people a year are killed through medical malpractice.

Joe Biden Double Talks on Gun Control

"Don't you find it considerably ironic. That Joe Biden wants to ban weapons of war in the United States of America, yet sin hundreds of millions of dollars worth of weapons of war to Ukraine. And you know that, you know, Ukraine was passing guns out to their citizens. They were passing out ARs to citizens. Every man for yourself, how stupid do you have to be to believe that Democrats are acting in good faith? And I don't want to call you stupid, but the decision on the thought process is stupid, not you, 'cause I don't know you. But if you're thinking that the Democrats are acting in the best interest of our children, you are extremely misled.

"A video and he's a measured individual and I trust almost anything he say unless I have a reason not to. He said he talks to several individuals got information from several individuals that are part of the investigation that you've already and there's a lot of stuff that people are not getting information that has not come out. And people are going to be shocked with the information that comes out. The DoJ wants to investigate the board of vortex team and, you know, when they put articles like this out, this is from Tam hall. People feel like an investigation is a bad thing. I hope that the DoJ doesn't want to criticize vortex because the poor tech unit showed up and they were the result of killing the suspect and however, when you read articles like this, you have to be mindful of the false fake information that's presented. According to the article, it says local police appear to believe the situation was turned into an active shooter from an active shooter to a barricade and they indicated that vortex blatantly disobeyed commands from the incident commander, which is that you've all consolidated independent school district chief. It's funny how words can really be misleading. When you say Borg disobeyed the commands from the Yuval, the police chief, that's not necessarily true. Because you make a decision to go into the school because you have new information or because the tactical strategy that you put together was complete and now it is time to execute. Don't mean you disobeyed what the police officer said at the scene. I want people to understand this very clearly. Did you volley police chief begged for? Bortac to show up. For tactical units to show up. It is not rational to think that he begged for them to show up, and then when they actually got there, he said, stand down, and they had to disobey his command to go in and save lives. I mean, I'm not going to be rude to anybody about it, but I don't think it's very wise if you came to that conclusion. Another story did has come out of uvalde, including or involving the police chief, is that now there's information that has come out according to the daily wire article that I'm reading here. And also according to the state senator, Ronald Gutierrez that there's a good possibility he's very confident that this happened that the 9-1-1 calls that came through or were called in by the kids that were trapped in a classroom, that information never got to the Yuval police chief consolidated independent school district police chief. I'm just going to call him the school district police chief so you guys can bear with me instead of me saying that hold on. I think every time I mention him, that those 9-1-1 calls were not translated to him. They were not given to him. He was unaware that these calls had come in and even though he was the incident commander. Now, according to senator state senator Gutierrez, from San Antonio, he made mention that the information from the dispatcher made it to evolve the officers, but not the Yuval independent school district chief who's making decisions. Now this seems like a complete breakdown of communication and I believe this never should have happened, but doesn't that change your perspective just a little bit of the responsibility of the independent school district chief. That maybe his instructions weren't to stand down and to sit there while a man is roaming through the school murdering people. Maybe he never heard the calls. He never got to him that there were calls that were made. And so his tactics in his instructions were different than what we now know had occurred. Last night on the podcast that I listened to, you should check it out. Mike the cop was a former police officer and him have been cool for a couple of years now ever since I left the police department. We've been in contact on his podcast failure to stop, they indicate that evidence or the information that they have indicate that shooting had stopped for 40 minutes. Meaning that after the initial shots, there was nowhere no more shooting. There's also information that have come out in the same day to our article, I believe, is that the shooting has stopped and also there is potential of hostage negotiation that occurred, or at least it was an attempt to negotiate with the shooter. Some people may say, why would they negotiate with the shooter? He's in there killing people. I want people to understand that the shooting and killing, it appeared that it had stopped for a large, a long period of time. The shooter was isolated in one room or a two rooms joined room conjoined rooms that was joined by a bathroom, he was isolated in that one area. If you were able to see a map and I made a video about this on my YouTube channel, they also Tatum YouTube channel. If you were able to see a map of the school, you will see that this shooting situation was isolated in a small part of the school. When you look at how massive the school was, the cafeteria, all what appear to be portable rooms, that's a K through 12 school. I don't think it's a K through 12 school. It's an elementary school. So all of these classrooms that you can see on this map is a much larger school circumference than this area where the shooting actually occurred. So when people were making a statement that, you know, parent, a parent had ran in and got her kid out of the school, that could be partially true, but have gotten the parent may have gotten a kid out of a portion of the school that was nowhere near where the shooting had occurred. So with some of this additional information and I know it's jumbly, I'll just take it here and there and do your research on your own. But with this new information coming out, I hope that people will take a pause and say, okay, if I recently said that these cops were cowards or whatever. Just take your time. Take some time. And realize that there's a lot more to come out and that Brandon Tatum is typically accurate about situations like this. I want to jump to another subject, same topic, another subject, or another location, the Tulsa shooting, now actually self this question. How much coverage are you seeing about the Tulsa shooting? How much coverage? I would argue that I'm looking on the Internet and I'm seeing more uvalde, then I'm seeing about a total shooting that just happened until Oklahoma at a hospital. This person happened to be black, and he also killed a Doctor Who was black. But nobody's covering this, nobody cares. Why? Because it does not fit a narrative because the police response was pretty good. They technically from the time the call came in to the time they reached the feet of the suspect he was already dead. It took 9 minutes. I think it took them four minutes to respond a three minutes to respond to the actual hospital after the 9-1-1 call was made. So there's no criticism of law enforcement. Then you had a guy that went into the hospital and he had a handgun and a rifle. And they believed that he fired from both platforms. And then he went in up to the second floor and murdered four people. I think it was maybe three people. Three or four people including himself, or not including himself, but outside of him killing himself, I got to get the number right. I see pictures of four people in my mind and then include himself will make it 5, but I'll verify that. Some of you guys probably know the number. But he kills them in cold blood, he kills himself, and the media don't want to have anything to say about this situation. This is not going to be included in the shooting violence in America. Joe Biden didn't even bring this up in his speech. And this was a story that happened a few days before his speech. He didn't even bring it up. And I'm telling you guys when there's a black shooter in a mass shooting situation, the media, the leftist, the Democrats they have no ground to push their white supremacists, gun grabbing legislation. So they won't talk about it..

"The Seattle Police Department is in a staffing crisis. A lot of officers have left, but the City Council has rejected a plan to spend the millions they saved because of those departures to keep the remaining officers on the job. Let's go live now to Cairo radios. Hannah Scott, What's going on here? Hannah? Right. So this actually married very closely. A lot of the discussion. We heard back when the protest over the death of George Floyd was going on, and we heard so much about defunding the police. This was the supplemental budget that mid year budget that the council was dealing with yesterday and what they're Talking about his $15 million in savings that was budgeted for the Seattle Police Department for 2021, but is now savings because they've lost hundreds of officers all told in the last 18 months. The Seattle Police Department has lost 300 officers Now they've hired 100. So that's a net loss still of 200. It's really had a huge impact on so much of the public safety in the cities. Uh, we had just a couple of months ago We got to release of The from the SPD about the response times that they were having a for priority one calls, which are your most serious types of calls. They had double digit increases to how long it took to get to some of these cars more than 12 minutes for priority to calls that still like somebody breaking into your house or something like that. There was 60 minutes in some areas of the city that it took. For those 911 calls to be responded to. So this staffing crisis is a huge problem and the crisis But at the same time you've got the city working to move certain parts of the things that used to be under the control of the police department out of the police department That's so far included your 911 calls and some of the traffic operations things. And then also, there's this effort to invest a lot of public safety dollars in human services instead for things like you just care program to, um, also addressed things like gun violence, invest in alternatives like community passageways, various different programs that they're looking to, and then, eventually, more mental health workers so kind of following what some of the other states like Colorado and Oregon have done with similar programs like Korkut's where you Have Mental health workers who respond to the calls that maybe don't need to go to police. I think there was an analysis done that. The council member Andrew Lewis cited yesterday that said 75% of the calls that Seattle police go to Don't need to be Seattle Police go into them right, so that But the but the deal is is that that's going to take a long time to get taking alright? Those services in place right now, So we're waiting for that. Who do you call? Exactly. So what we have on the table yesterday was a few different possibilities for this. $15 Million.01 was to use three million of it for hiring and retention. Part of that would have been a couple $100,000 for $15,000 retention and hiring bonuses for officers to keep those we have. That was from council member Alex Peterson supported by Deborah Wars, and it was rejected. Then he had another one. Another version that was just one million for similar similar spending. And that also was rejecting this time. This time, 72. It was just one vote shy. And then I'm sorry, 54. It was one vote shy. Then Shamas want wanted to take more money from the $15 million and not leave as much that was going to be in there that failed. In the end. What we had was a hybrid passing $15 million in savings about 10 million will stay with the Seattle Police Department. But it's going to take things like technology and some other kind of procedural stuff that they need to do not for that hiring and retention bonuses, so no extra money to give bonuses to new hires and or retain the officers that they have. Mayor Durkan had before this vote yesterday, and the police chief had put out a statement really strongly encouraging the Council of Super Pass this Because they again as we talked about the need to have a solid Seattle police force and tell some of these other programs are put up. And at the same time, the mayor has pointed out that she's been able to put millions of dollars into some of these alternatives. Already so they just aren't up and running yet they haven't been brought to scale so that you can do both was appointed. But as you workers by the police departures continuing or they're still going on then so we're still there are the offices. The police are defunding themselves essentially well, The police are there. They're leaving because they're you know, they don't feel supported Essentially because of the climate here, and right now you have. I believe it's about 100 officers who are basically burning up their their vacation and sick time and all of that kind of thing, and the belief is that about half of that number will leave at the end of that time. So that we're still going to see this really big influx of officers leaving And the problem is that even though we've hired 100 new officers you have It takes a long time for the new cop to get up to speed right and to be the same as, say the veteran cop who's leaving the force. So it's not, you know apples to apples comparison. It's not the same thing. When you're losing a lot of long time officers so make you know there is definitely a crisis going on within the Seattle Police Department seeing that show up in crime statistics. Well, and that's the thing..

Jury selection was supposed to begin today, but prosecutors fought for a delay until an appeal over reinstating a third degree murder charges resolved. The judge says selection will get underway tomorrow unless the higher court stops of Chopin pleaded not guilty to second degree murder and manslaughter charges.

Jean Smith, with the Seattle Alliance against Racist and Political Repression, says we face the same lack of accountability in Washington state. These activists say What is needed is a top to bottom reorganization of how police departments air run, starting with the formation of a civilian police accountability counsel to oversee all aspects of operations in full control over budget. Policy hiring firing of top level staff and street level officers oversight full access to investigations. These demonstrators say. The problem with current police watchdog agencies is the people who run them are appointed, alliance members say, unlike Seattle's Office of Police, Accountability, or Opa, Their proposal for a civilian counsel would be an elected board. So it answer directly to the community. There's a lot of cops on board on the opiates, so it's cops watching cops, which isn't great for accountability. Well, These demonstrators do not have a specific timeline to get the legislation out for these civilian oversight boards. They say they plan to hold more rallies. Get their message out peacefully.

One on one with Seattle's interim police chief

"The Seattle City Council is considering yet another budget cut to the Seattle Police Department a move that I suppose we should not find surprising. It's a preemptive cut of over dollars. This, of course, on top of what was previously cut, and of course, it has implications. Joining me on the line is interim police chief Adrian Diaz. Ideas. Welcome back to the show. Welcome. Thank you for having me. I really appreciate you taking the time. So what is the $5.4 Million cut mean in terms of public safety? Yeah. You know, we have had, you know some cuts last year. At the end of their session, Another $2 million and some of the other additional cuts that they have This 5.4 million is just One of those things that we're trying to just kind of stabilize our efforts and our hiring efforts. We have some other crude costs that come up. We have You know, we've had a lot of people leave our department. So we had to pay additional money out in separation pay. We've had people because we have Ah, younger workforce, eh? So we've had people that go out on pay parental leave. And so this is some of that money that you know can you know, cover those costs, But we've also had, you know, we really tried to focus our efforts because we've lost a lot of sworn officers. Hiring additional civilian positions that conduce you of riot different works from CSOs, our community service officers, crime prevention coordinators. And you know that you know another additional cut with a lot wouldn't Wouldn't allow us to be able to hire for some of those civilian positions that are so desperately needed. So they've also effectively cut your overtime budget. So how does that work? Because you've got a dwindling for she lost What? 197 police officers last year I'm told that the numbers are still going down. You lost about 20 this month. I don't know if that's been confirmed yet, but you know you've had to use over time as a result of that, of course. Also you had a lot of instances of unrest that you were staffing. So what exactly is the plan this year? Yeah. You know, we've we've actually had to make some obviously some some adjustments. You know, when I moved 100 officers back into patrol we created during that same time we created a community response group. That has been able to handle 911 calls but also be able to, you know, work and deal with the demonstrations, some that direct action that has been occurring for the last several months. And that has helped us out immensely having a group or squad or units that are able to, um Be able to respond to that direct action that is actually limit that's actually pared down some of our overtime. But as we see more people leave the department. You do have to figure out ways that you can have personnel, you know, sure that up, and that means that you know if we have this level of direct action occurring, you know, luckily not on a nightly basis, but it's been enough. Where it impacts our ability to go out and do proactive public safety on destroying to recover guns off the street because we've had an all time high when it came to about an all time high, but 28 year high Yes. You know, we've tracked. You know our shots fired. Going up are you know homicides going up and so we've got to figure out how do we get? Our resource is back into just doing police work so we can Get some of these guns off the street when part of the issue is and you know you made a point to discuss this over the weekend is you'll make arrest. Your officers will make arrest and then nothing really happens. And so you kind of got a little bit of Ah, potential fight brewing with Pete Holmes, Seattle City attorney. You announced this new policy that he will actually prosecute the vandalism by some of these anti for groups and other agitators. His office has since come out and said, there's no new policy. It sounds like someone's playing a game of semantics here. So what was your conversation with him like between inauguration night violence that that broke out which you indicated? That's when the conversations started to happen? At least and your press conference? What was the conversation? So you know, I'm not going to speak for homes. What I can say is that e think we can all agree that the actions of the direct direct action of these groups that have you know Been breaking windows and created property damage and assaulting, you know, people, there's no tolerance for it. Um And I do think that you know Pete Holmes had mentioned they not gonna prosecute peaceful protesters. We don't arrest people protest. Yeah, Exact. That is not what our focus is. You know, our focus is literally trying to make sure that people that are committed to property damage. Uh, that we address those issues, you know, right away, and and so you know, and we've we've taken you know some different approaches over the last several Uh, months to try and reduce the confrontation between our officers Because direct action. People are looking for that confrontation. And so you know, we've we've taken a different stands on it. And actually Wednesday, the Wednesday case on Inauguration day he did charge and so I'm grateful for that. We have to put good cases you know, together and making sure that officers when they do arrest somebody. They have all the elements of the crime and and I will keep on pushing that our officers need to go out and do their job and making arrests in and try to Fine cases. And then I'll work with Pete Holmes on a case by case basis of making sure people are held

Ten republicans voted to impeach including southwest washington. State's jaime herrera butler declare fire enemy. Isn't the president or the president. Elect fear is our enemy tells us what we want to hear. It incites anger and violence in fire. But it also haunts us into silence and inaction. What are you afraid of. I'm afraid of what people will say or think. I'm afraid of being devalued losing my job but i am afraid that my country will fail. I'm afraid patriots of this country have died in vain. Children won't grow up in a free country. I'm afraid in justice will prevail but truth truth sets us free from fear. Truth doesn't guarantee bad things won't happen but it does promise to always prevail in the end it has no shadows where darkness can hide with. Truth comes levin. we could use that right. My vote to impeach. Our sitting president is not a fear based decision. I am not choosing side. I'm choosing truth is the only way to defeat. Fear jaime herrera butler of the vancouver area standing up for truth there central washington's dan newhouse also voted to impeach. He started his speech with some good old. What aboutism madam speaker. This is a sad day in our republic but not a saturday disheartening as the violence we witnessed in the capital last wednesday. We are all responsible. My colleagues are responsible for not condemning writers past year like like those who barricaded the doors of the seattle police department and attempted to murder the officers. Inside that is a reference to seattle's east precinct. Building where some rioters tried to seal the twelfth avenue door with cement while officers were inside on the pine street side of the building. Someone started fire. We don't know whether they were connected. One person has been charged with arson. I don't believe anyone's charged with murder as to his Colleagues who didn't condemn violence. He didn't make clear which colleagues he means. This is house speaker nancy. pelosi september. We support peaceful demonstrations. We participate in them. They are part of the essence of our democracy that does not include looting starting fires or rioting those are they should be prosecuted list after this new house moved on to continue his speech on the house floor voting to impeach the president and he did take some responsibility others including myself are responsible for not speaking out sooner before the president misinformed at inflamed a violent mob who tore down the american flag and brutally beat capital police officers adam speaker. We must all do better. These articles of impeachment are flawed. But i will not use process as an excuse. There's no excuse for president trump's actions. The president took an oath to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic last week there was a domestic threat at the door of the capitol and he did nothing to stop it. That is why with a heavy heart and clear resolve. I will vote. Yes on these articles of impeachment

The investigation began when a colleague saw a photo of the officers that appeared to be from the pro trump rally in washington. Dc andrew meyer. Berg directs police accountability. He says normally attending a political rally would be allowed under sp policies. I wanna be abundantly. Clear that officers don't abandon their first amendment rights just because they you know they become a police officer joined the seattle police department. That officers can't engage in activities that would undermine public trust even on their own time. Myer says many participants of last week's riot came with the intent to break the law by invading the building. Dude the officers involved engage in that were they actively planning they engage in. I'm pretty rally conversations that showed intensity so those are the things that we'd want to know.

"And a lot of debate in and outside of Seattle City halls. For months, the City Council's been talking about de funding the police department by as much as 50%. And last night. Members finally passed a new budget for 2021 our own Cairo radios. Hannah Scott has been tracking all of the latest developments, and she joins us now. Hey, Hannah. Hey. So, yes. So the big big focus on a lot of the attention was going to, Of course, what was gonna happen with Seattle Police department. We had some council members suggesting early on that they they supported 50% cuts to the Seattle police department. In the end, they came out with nearly 20%. Cuts to the SPD. Ah, good chunk of that is because of moving the parking enforcement and the 911 Call Management Center out of the department, so it's not in their budget anymore, But there are there is a loss of officers, and there's also the request to Have 35 out of order lay off from the council. That's gonna have to go through bargaining. We'll see what happens, but they will have fewer officers. At this point, though. They're losing so many officers. They can't replace them anyway. All told, it's about an $80 million reduction in their budget from before again. A lot of shifting going on. They're so okay, but we have okay. So hand. I just wanna wanna hit a couple of points with you so We're talking about nowhere close to 50%. No nowhere close. It's nearly 20%. But I will tell you I watched at a zoom call with some of those community groups who are taking part in this participatory budgeting moving forward and they said they were. You know they were disappointed that wasn't 50%. But they say it's just the beginning. This is the first step They're going to keep moving. They're also going to push really hard moving forward in the next couple of weeks. For that plan, we heard a little bit about a few weeks back about doing away with misdemeanors are allowing judges to give them a pass. If it's for poverty or because you're addicted to drugs, and you commit a misdemeanor. That's a big push that they want to get behind right now, too, and continuing into the next budget next year more cuts the SPD. I'm old enough or young enough to remember this year wasn't that long ago when Seattle City Council were making these decisions? The funding was being talked about the potential for 50% cuts were being talked about and during that time they weren't communicating with the police chief at the time, Carmen best They didn't even sit down with her. So my question now is is now they're saying, Oh, they're kind of going back on that. Maybe the funding 50% was not a good idea. Is this because they are in communiqu? Better communication with the current police chief of Seattle. I don't know that that has is necessarily the reason. I think that you've seen every side give a little bit here, and they definitely have been in contact with chief he is. I think the overall thing that the council members learned was until there is this Reimagined public safety, which is still in the process. These community groups are still working on that research until you have that replacement and bring it to scale. You've gotta have some cops on the street, so they had to pull back a little bit. Is that just that I got I mean, there were the morale in the police department is so bad and we've talked about you know so many officers leaving and then we're talking about a net number of additional cuts, Hannah Some of it is an additional and is a very complicated formulas. Some of it has to do with the attrition. So there's a projection for how many cops they think they can hire. Next year. They basically tried to equal that out. So they took another two million out of the SPD budget yesterday because they had some better. Some new projections that came in last minute about how many officers they might be able to hire. They don't want To be able to hire to increase the size of the department from what they already had. So that again, it's a complicated formula. And all of that rolls into that 80 million or so dollar number that I gave you. Our homeless crisis also continues to get worse even before the pandemic through the pandemic, Um Did the Seattle City Council did they include anything to address that problem? Yes. In fact, this is the single It's a record. I believe for the single you're spending on homelessness that the mayor was championing, championing after this past yesterday. They do a lot. There's a seven million for tiny home villages. There's more regular shelter beds are the regular shelter beds. And then there's more money for outreach workers. And again. We've got the whole retooled navigation team, so you won't have the police officers with them anymore. But you'll have case workers who are going to increase funding for those caseworkers to go out and do that outreach and increased responsibility for them. There's a lot of there's 63 or so new watering stations around kind of hygiene stations around safe consumption or safe injection sites that the city didn't necessarily spend. They've had a million or so dollars sitting around for a few years, waiting to do something with never can find a site. They authorized that going to the public Health King County Public Health And I believe the thought from what I've heard behind the scenes is that they might actually do something create one of those safe consumption sites, which is that harm reduction model that everyone is very supportive of in Seattle. Anna, thank you so much. I also want to point out that I understand that the downtown Seattle business community is not so happy with what they have done, with the police department, pointing out that crime is up..

"Seattle Police Department I'm Ryan Harris with this co Moh extra. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has made it clear she agrees in principle, with the idea of cutting police spending in favor of alternatives believed to be more likely to make community safer, like access to education, housing, living wage jobs and community efforts that can reduce violence Dirk and even proposed $20 million in SPD spending cuts. And another 56 million saved by redirecting officers away from jobs that would be better left the mental health and other professionals. These cuts were driven by the full involvement of the Seattle Police Department in chief Carmen Best, which is the right way to go about transforming the Seattle police Department. That's not enough for a majority of the Seattle City Council, which voted this week not to cut a full 50% of SPD is remaining 2020 budget. But to cut more than 100 officers to cut chief Carmen best salary by 40% as well. A slashing the salaries of several other top command officers and to cut the navigation team, which is supposed to help guide homeless people, the shelter or other services, the mayor in chief have repeatedly said to make these cuts without a plan for something else that would help maintain public safety is irresponsible. And while chief best isn't thrilled with the idea of a huge pay cut, why on earth The people who worked so very hard We ever consider not having the best of the best and compensate them fairly. I find that absolutely shocking. But best also maintains these cuts will force her to fire newer officers who've contributed to SPD's diversity. If they're going to put this system in place, Who is it? That's going to answer those calls for service and how are they going to do that and how they're going to ensure Race and social justice lens that the very people they break bring in don't have their own implicit or explicit bias is what is the plan? Councilmember Shama Sawant, who is leading the calls for a 50% de funding of police says We're talking about really exorbitant salaries in a department. That, um Has caused a lot of harm and violence in the community. But the biggest beef city Council members, including President Lorena Gonzalez, have is that they want the mayor and the chief to work with them on a solution. I had a 60 minute phone call this mayor several hours in advance of her press conference where I openly invited her. And the chief to a conversation about how we chart a collaborative path forward, and I was disappointed to hear not only that she accepted that invitation first, but that she went Then before a set of cameras to continue to misrepresent this council's willingness to continue to engage collaboratively. The claim was slightly different The next day when Gonzales says she wanted the council to have a unified position in order to start the work with the mayor and chief Council member, Lisa Herbold says, by signing on to a goal, they have a council unified on SPD's 2020 budget and a pathway and a plan for how to leverage the decisions that were making right now. To reduce the size of the police department in 2021 Herbold says. Just because the goal seems unrealistic, it doesn't mean they won't shoot for it. But Mayor Durkin says there's almost no way to cut those officers in the way that council has requested, and it is impossible to do it by November of 2020 of this year, a clear majority of the public commenters that recent council meetings have been in favour of 50%. Police de funding While the officers union the Seattle police officers guilts as it has tens of thousands of signatures from people firmly against it. The City Council is expected to vote on the 2020 budget revision, which includes all the SPD cuts Monday. It's possible they could pass it with a veto proof majority, but because it's a bill with other spending cuts needed because of lost tax revenue during the pandemic. The mayor might not want to veto it with this co Moh extra. I'm Ryan Harris your money at 20 and 50 past the hour on Comeau News. Now it's time for the propel insurance money update the essence down a game after being weighed down for much of the day on Friday.

"The Seattle Police department was among the first of the city agencies to enter this area. Today. Our job was to vacate the area and issued dispersal orders. Hey, Can you explain that area tow us? Okay, so the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone or chop? The Capitol Hills is kind of a hippie dippy, gentrified little area, But it's a decent size area. And this is in C s is in Seattle, and they allowed it to be overrun by protestors protesting the police and George Floyd. But really, what it became was ah Lunacy Crazy Festival. Of of just anarchy. And that was chief best talking about Jenny Durkan, who's the mayor? And by the way they started protesting the mayor's house, so it's the minute they got to the mayor's house. Guess what happened? It's time for us to put this stuff down. Two murders. Wow! Think a 14 year old is in right now. There were several people shot and sexual assaults and rapes. Allegedly. It was a nightmare. You had people Home. What no government. Yet they started to realise that became one of most dangerous places in America. Why don't the cops take it Take it sooner. That's a great question. They allowed, they told the cops to leave. And they didn't want the cops to be involved in any way, shape or form. They weren't even letting the cops and the and first responders in when there were shootings. It's insane. That's crazy. And so finally today, they said, Well, we had enough. This was like, three weeks the ladder while we run around, and by.

Mark Anthony, a part of the chop Counsel says they're not going to move Eddie of those barricades. Reason that these borders were installed before our safety shop has decided to defend our borders. In fact, they're telling protesters to stand guard at those barricades and entrances. And despite what Anthony and others here, see as threats from the outside on the inside, trouble still exist, and the fact that not all of the so called leaders Seem to be on the same page about how to handle things moving forward. We're fast approaching one month since chop was created. And now more than ever, it seems those barricades at the center of a stalemate with the city.

One man was arrested during the protests after one of the glass windows was shattered. Homer was Nick Problem shares what could come next? There was a gathering of folks outside the West Precinct.

"The Seattle Police Department is that 2021 There's a hiring freeze for SPD. You can't do. Ah! Outreach. You could do outreach, right? I mean, you can focus re sources in black communities to make the case that one way to reform the police is to have more black officers to bring that perspective to police. It sure yeah, it actually the quotas of the outrage. You're talking kind of like I 1000 which remember didn't pass. But yes, they can still They can still do kind of outreach, and they have been doing that all the departments. I know State Patrol was huge on that, and they just have a tough time getting them getting the interest from from certain communities. And that goes for women. And not not just, you know, the black community a lot of different so that's got to be part of the conversation deescalation, making sure those independent investigations are done and are really independent. Then you've got to deal with the union issue. You see, near our organizations like black lives matter, encouraging black people to apply to be police officers or is that not part of their platform? You know, and I don't know that I know there's a big push for multiple black community organizations to increase diversity at the department. But I don't know if they actually encourage people in their own communities to be, you know to go do that. And on the other issue that being the protest, the mayor says is coming to an end. Is it coming to an end? We don't have any specifics on the planet. I know their conversations going on. I know Andre Taylor from not this time is going to be up there this week. He's trying to talk with the organizer's. We heard. I know in last night's dream that I was watching that there are some people talking about going to occupy the space needle. There is like a moving So so we'll have to see. But the crowd seems to be thinning out.

"Seattle. Police department has a recruiting problem, apparently so bad officers are being reassigned. Detectives being told they may have to go out on patrols and more on the story from komo's Carleen Johnson. Email went out to all staff on Wednesday and cross cut. Got a copy sent by the deputy chief of police it said redeployments would be possible to provide necessary. Police response there've been growing complaints from citizens about slow response times when an officer is needed. So now detectives who do investigative work are going to be trained on patrol duty few years ago. The city promised two hundred officers were going to be hired but the net change end of two thousand eighteen was a loss of at least thirty three cops chief Carmen best blames. Fact they worked without a contract for a few years until the one just brokered in November. And they did get a recent big raise. So that should help with recruiting killed vice president rich O'neil tells cross cut this is unprecedented. And if officers are mandatory reassigned instead of just asked if they want extra shifts that's going to have to be bargained with the union. Carleen Johnson, KOMO news. A state legislative session begins Monday. And key lawmakers say mental health is their top priority. Here's komo's Keith Eldridge spotlight is on western state psychiatric hospital, which has been decertified by the federal government and has seen a rash of assaults and other safety issues. Lawmakers also want to see early intervention and community treatment centers. I think there's broad agreement within the legislature that this is a top priority. So I think we're going to get a lot done. It's going to shake your hand there on that really is going to be a top priority and bipartisan, I'm really happy. This is great. But the details on how to get that done.
