"What kind of Counselor. You offering the people of both the renters and the landlords who call and say what's next? You know, it's funny, You said. We spend most of our time now steering them toward the different emergency Rental assistance program. That are out there because the city has won the county as one of the state has won and people can qualify for. I believe they can only qualify for one of them, but it's somewhat of a bit of a lottery, so they it's good to apply for multiple ones knowing that you only get one, but we steer them in that direction. We also try to work with them in traditional. You've always done this. We try to work out with them on alternative housings. Scenarios, but that's just beyond complicated now, because literally are we trying out we're going to make the cove it outbreak worse by sending someone into a house where there now on top of each other and the like. So most of it right now, John is we have things queued up that are ready to be go ahead with evictions, but mostly steering people toward these relief funds that are out there now. What's the current situation of 26 in California? You know, John, that's something where I'm happy to tell you that for now, going on two months we have never had more than 15. I think People positive for Cove it and of those 15. It's always the same form of 13 of them have come in off the street. Positive. So you know very, very strange way. The county jail right now is probably one of the safest places because we have over 5000 detainees we've made just under 9000 conducted of just under 9000 tests, and I'm not joking, John to have the numbers sticking at 14 or 15. Is the number everyday, not 40 or 50 new ones. But 14 or 15 at one time is the number. We kept out at faras positives and they're all coming off the street, which is what we told people from the beginning. This notion that there was one person that walked into the jail and infected the whole place because we were reckless was just insane. And we've we've proven that now. But you know, John, the biggest problem we're having now is that Is there seeing all around the country in different iterations, whether it's in college settings or elsewhere, people have let their guard go down or there's justice, fatigue. And so our optic that we're seeing is with our employees and its employees not working at the jail so either police officers are courtroom deputies are civilians.

Do you think the state's attorney is prosecuting property crime violators as vigorously as she should be? You know, I'm not trying to doctor but I honestly don't know, because I'm a former prosecutor myself. I don't know what they're being presented with because If, in fact they can show that they are walking into their office with making this up Ah 100 property related cases and they're not approving charges on those or only a fraction of it. That's a huge problem. On the other hand, if they're bringing them 80 cases, and they're proving 78 of them. Well, that probably would make sense. You know, you have one or two cases where the facts don't fit enough to get beyond a reasonable doubt and all that stuff, So I honestly don't know that part of it because I'm not privy to the facts. I these air primarily of Chicago, as I have my police department. In the city now helping out I have some of my officers actually in the gold Coast now, and I'm got people on the West side as well in some parts of the south side, But so my cases that we've had our not like Chicago one there at the front line. We have had, you know were much smaller force, So we haven't as many So I can only tell you about mine, and I haven't had any that I've taken there as faras looting because we were in different areas like, for example, on the West side where we have a large presence.

And you know, he spoke from the heart about being an African American man about being Chicago in and the kind of damage from a cop standpoint for actual victims of hate crimes. This type of thing can do he reinforced that the Chicago police will always prosecute hate crimes to the fullest. He talked about how dangerous false reporting is. It's not just a cop sitting at a desk. Filling out a report and having his time wasted their money about this man hours involved. There's frankly risk involved. So this is not just a stupid stunt by a guy who had a bad idea, regardless of whatever is his own damages between his ears or hurt his heart. This is a really really terrible thing to do. And you know, he's he's he he may or may not go to jail, but he's certainly in the crosshairs. That's probably a big a continuum right now that he's probably done in show business. In the meantime, it's nine twenty five and I talked about cop saying the right thing yesterday. Cook County sheriff Tom dart was on the show, and we were talking about the fact that now we could go today in Aurora five people went to work, and we were murdered murdered by a guy who was fired after fifteen years at work brought a gun into work that he shouldn't have had. And had had previous convictions did prison time for violence. And again, it's another example of a nut with a gun taking lives changing lives forever. The victims. Now, go on with fathers and brothers and friends a twenty one year old on his first day as an internship. We'll never see his family again in the family will never see him. It's just tragic all the way around. So the obvious question that comes up is. How did the nut get the gun and sheriff Tom dart brought up a pretty scary scenario because of a loophole in Illinois law. Here's a clip from yesterday. Firearm, you need a Ford car apply to state your card things that you can do they get that revolt committed crime has a mental illness things along those lines. Then it's revoke the system that's in existence only speak to the card. So you think about the state? It's it's is this we collectively society said that individual cannot be around cards. Get the. Card get his he's library card can all card. The system legally only goes after the card, it doesn't speak to raise that is that stupid law or is that lobbying by gun makers. Lobbying lobbyists lobby. Trust me. Four or five years ago? I was down Springfield on this very issue saying listen, circuit is that what we're trying to get away from people. We get care less about a physical card, right? And when I tried to put some teeth in the law. They wanted nothing to do with absolutely nothing. Sheriff Tom dart yesterday in that should scare you. I say it all the time, but it bears repeating and I talked about Titians all the time. So I know this is factual the one way to get politicians to move is to tell them you're not putting up with the nonsense anymore, and some cases like Mike Madigan. You can't reach him on the phone. Mike doesn't know the phone was invented either that or he's hiding. But for everybody else who is reachable call the offices of your representatives in Springfield in say enough. At the bare minimum fixed that law. You got a convicted felon who gets a letter that he's no longer legally allowed to have a gun. And then the police are supposed to come by and get his Foyt card and have voluntarily returned the weapons. It's insane. If somebody's crazy and intent on committing a crime that I could give you the gun back without taking a gun. He also mentioned that like sometimes when they've gone to the house to these people like the families are like, please take the gun. Right. We don't want them here. My daughter is sick. We don't like that. She has these. Yes. Specific case retrieves talking about yesterday, take these guns magin that you've got a troubled child over the age of twenty one. We are trying to take care of who happens to have guns. Miss a nightmare. So ask your elected representatives to to just be courageous enough to do the right thing and make sure the laws on the books are followed. Is it type of thing that makes me just not nine twenty nine? We're back with your headlines in a moment. I'm seven twenty WGN. We're.
