"Siler A Superior Court judge ruled today that Los Angeles County officials need to provide more evidence to justify their November ban on outside dining. However, the state's order maintains the restrictions there until December. 27th. The ruling comes as covert 19 cases continue to spike across the state and businesses, including restaurants get hammered by pandemic shut down orders loyal a law professor Jessica Levinson joins us to sort through this ruling and Professor Levinson. The judge ruled that L. A county acted quote arbitrarily and without a proper risk benefit analysis. When it closed down outside dining and on Lee outside dining. No other businesses on November 25th. What does this mean? Exactly? And what is the judge asking for here? The judges really just asking for more evidence. What we're seeing now, at this point in the pandemic at this point when judges are confronting Thies Stay at home orders when judges are confronting these orders of closing businesses is that we just know a lot more about the virus. Where is in March? We just know so much less about the virus. We didn't know. What was safe. What wasn't if outdoors really different than indoors, we didn't even really know if there was Paris lies transmission. Now we know more and judges They're saying, OK, Make sure your restrictions are tailored. You were monitoring the hearing and said the judge was somewhat hostile toward these restrictions. It looks so far like the judge is staying with the tentative, which is essentially to say, county. You don't have to do this. The judge is essentially weighing The costs and the benefit and I think, just telling the county you try to paint with too broad of a brush. So this ruling cannot supersede the states order right, so presumably outdoor dining can restart in L A when the state's order expires later this month. Right. The county cannot be less protective than the state if they're directly at odds than the county can go further, if it's proper and essentially say The state set a floor but we're going to go further than that. We want to be even more protective of your health. But the county can't go under that floor to a basement and say We know that the state said no. X Y Z, but we want to go ahead and allow X Y C. Those counties can't do that right. And several counties in the Bay Area just instituted a stay at home order this week, including a ban on outside dining. With the same legal argument. Be valid here or is it apples and oranges? It's the same legal argument. I think that there are different questions when it comes to the rates of transmission in different places. If you are really as a judge going to make a risk assessment, then you have to look at the hole. You have to take a holistic approach to all of the risks. You can't just look at one number. You have to say. What's the community transmission? Um, how many beds are available? If you have to go to the hospital? How many doctors and nurses are available to take care of you? Judges should not pretend that they are epidemiologist. Judges should do exactly what they're charged with doing. Applying the fax of a new set of circumstances to the law and essentially determining The county. Just try and use a blunt force. Object of the county used a sledgehammer when it could have used a scalpel. Thanks, Professor Levinson. Thank you..

"Lung health is crucial, go to tobacco free siya dot com You're listening to K Keep dfm, San Francisco and FM north Highland Sacramento. It's 5 30 It's the news. I'm terrorist. Seiler, the city of Berkeley, is making good on its pledge to transform the way it carries out public safety, with the goal of cutting the police department's budget by 50%. After a virtual meeting lasting many hours, Berkeley City Council passed an omnibus bill that will mean major changes ahead for policing Berkeley's mayor, Jesse out again crafted the legislation and joins us and mayor. One of the things the city is planning to do is take traffic enforcement away from the police and give that job. Two unarmed employees who will be in it working in a new Department of Transportation. What? What's the thinking behind this? Well, this is the first nation strategy and I know other cities are looking to Berkeley. We want to focus our approach to Traffic enforcement and transportation on ensuring safe streets not only focused on enforcement of the laws but also on implementing our vision zero policy. Also we know that in a city of Berkeley and many other communities, people of color are disproportionately stopped by law enforcement, and so we want to address the issue of racial disparities and police stops and the incentive for pretext stops. And take it out of the police department into unsworn death. We're not proposing to abolish the police. There is a role for police in our society, which is to address a serious and violent crime. So bye. Shifting some of the responsibilities for traffic enforcement and mental health and social service calls out of the police department. That will not only create money in our city budget, but ensure that our police officers can focus on what they're trained to do and respond quickly to those instances where things can escalate, and so who will do this kind of work, say, for example, homeless outreach and dealing with mental health crises? So some of that work we're proposing would be done by by city staff in our mental health division. We're also looking at partnering with community organizations so that people get the treatment and the care that they need. Berkley, like many various cities have seen an increase in unsheltered homelessness. Police are increasingly responding to those calls. I need to make investments and outreach and shelter and permanent housing. Take that responsibility off of our police department who are not trained to be social Service workers, but rather are there to prevent crime. There was a push by City Council woman, Cheryl Davila that the city cut the police budget by 50%. Your proposal, which one out is that the city make this a goal instead? Why did you want to move slower on this even though some many constituents voice support for her position. I think that what the council did is a very significant and bold step to say that we're going to be exploring a 50% reduction in our police Department budget just to cut 50% of the police department budgets immediately. Would have been irresponsible would've resulted in layoffs and would have left our community vulnerable. But our commitment is clear. We want to transform our approach to safety and moved to a different paradigm. That's gonna take time. And we need to do it right. So Mayor this this move by Berkeley comes in response to demands from the black lives matter movement that's sweeping the country. But Berkeley has has a long history of progressive policies and There have been many people killed by police before George Floyd. Why hasn't the city made some of these changes earlier? Well, we have been working over the past several years to look at reforming our our use of force policies significantly limit police use of force. We have on the ballot this November, a measure to create an independent Police Accountability Board and I feel we're being responsive to the national demands for transforming police. Well, thank you so much. Mayor appreciated. Thank you. That's Berkeley. Mayor Jesse are green and I'm terrorist. Siler. This is the news. Support for cake comes from the Bernard Osher Foundation supporting higher education and the arts. And from Comcast business, offering Internet voice and.

"Is KQED news I'm terrace Siler the trump administration put California on notice today that it plans to fight the state's recent deal with automakers to reduce vehicle emissions the justice department has launched an antitrust investigation into the agreement between Honda for Volkswagen and BMW agreeing to stricter emission standards and those pushed by president trump the justice department also sent a letter to California officials saying the deal appears to be unlawful and invalid and Carlson is an environmental law professor at UCLA and she joins us professor the agreement struck in July between the automakers and California is just a framework nothing has been formalized but can you describe for us what this deal aims to do I feel that California and the for automakers have agreed to in principle is based on the fact that there are existing standards that are supposed to take effect for the model years twenty twenty two to twenty twenty five that the trump administration is trying to revoke and California has its own special authority to issue similar standards actually the same standards of the trump administration's trying to revoke but the company restriction is also trying to eliminate California's power to issue the standards so what is the administration's arguments for this investigation is that setting emission standards is the federal government's job but of course as you referenced California's long had this this waiver allowing it to set the stricter standards governor Gavin Newsom today accused president trump of trying to scare carmakers away from this deal what what are your thoughts on the administration's motivation here well I think the initial motivation for the trump administration assist deregulate get rid of everything with the bombing ministration to to fight climate change and in order to do that he needs a rollback auto standards and take away California's permission to issue its own standards but it turns out that that's. in a lot more complicated than the trump administration thought they don't really have very many good reasons to revoke the standards and so there were what color rulemaking process has kind of gotten into some trouble and so they haven't actually issued a final proposal to roll back the standard to me it looks like they're just punishing California and for auto makers who agreed to this settlement because they figured out a way frankly to help fox the administration and I think that anger the president as a result he's trying to revoke California's permission they sent this letter to the California air resources board. it's a pretty threatening tone and then they are apparently investigating the for car companies for anti trust violations for engaging in water perfectly legal settlement conversations with the state of California so the irony about this controversy is at the auto maker's actually want the stricter standards or some stricter standards than that what the trump administration is proposing why have car companies been siding with California on this. companies are starting with California for a couple of reasons one reason is that the global market is moving in the same direction as California China and Europe of both indicated that they may even do away with the internal combustion engine over the course of the next five to ten years we need to be reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the rest of the world for the most part recognizes that I think another reason is that this is a good it's good business practice for the car companies to be able to participate in these markets across the globe that are demanding more fuel efficient vehicles or your vehicles to don't realize Hewlett although the little the land of extricity or other kinds of fuels that are not fossil fuels the dominant carbon thanks so much professor sure in Carlson's environmental law professor at UCLA and im terror Siler KQED news..

"It's KQED news I'm terrace Siler seventeen federal agencies are joining forces in a year long crackdown on drug trafficking in San Francisco's tenderloin district newly appointed U. S. attorney David Anderson made the announcement today he also said the government has already arrested at least thirty two people KQ these criminal justice editor Alex Emsley joins us and Alex let's start with the arrests that were announced today what we know about these individuals well it's a big pool of people and they apparently worked for not one but two separate highly organized drug trafficking operations that were based in the East Bay but these teams of dozens of street level drug dealers living in a number of houses in the East Bay mostly in Oakland participating in selling drugs was a requirement to live there they were given allotments of drugs to sell each day and those amounts were kept pretty small to avoid you know sort of higher penalty should be street level dealers be caught this is according to allegations made in documents unsealed today in these cases so tender wine it does have a reputation for its open air drug sales and use why is the federal government getting involved in seventeen agencies seems like an awful lot yeah it's a big push they're calling it the federal initiative for the tenderloin and it's supposed to last a minimum of a year it's not supposed to focus on low level you know drug users are people in possession of small amounts of drugs it's really about looking up the chain into distribution into why this particular area of San Francisco seems to be flooded with an open air drug market you know pretty much any time of day here is U. S. attorney David Anderson it is my belief that those persons living and working and visiting the tenderloin neighborhood should not be required to run a gauntlet of crime and so Alex what is SF PT's role in this operation well it's a little unclear moving forward you know the SFPD command staff work at the press conference today but we know that local police investigators both was SFPD and Richmond were involved in building these cases that are now being charged federally so going forward I'm not sure but we know that there's a bit of a history here there was a joint San Francisco police and federal drug operation back in twenty thirteen was called operation safe schools netted dozens of of alleged drug dealers but many of those prosecutions were dismissed amid allegations of selective prosecution what that means is basically racial bias in the the in who was arrested who was targeted and there's a lawsuit still on going for that there is a lawsuit pending and federal officials said that immigration agencies will be involved in this operation of course San Francisco opposes immigration sweeps and by law by local line by state law can't assist with them that's right and this gets a little bit complicated as to when exactly that line gets crossed now the federal operation officials are being pretty clear in saying this is not focused on immigration enforcement this is about criminal law drug sales gun trafficking it cetera but this particular operation focuses allegedly almost exclusively on hunter nationals that's different from that operation that we talked to about in twenty thirteen which was focused almost exclusively on African Americans so there are likely in in fact in some of the cases I was reading today there are immigration issues there is immigration enforcement that is discussed among these criminal charges whether or not that becomes a tool like leverage for prosecutors to uses these cases play out it may become part of the mix thanks so much Alex thank you KQ these criminal.

Because I thought experience from the U of C was going to be something that's hard to match. He went and six two or six and one in the NFC very respectable. They just chose not to resign him and Natan sheltie his his teammate down in American top team rose to the occasion, not just in this fight. But he had a good regular season. He's now the third millionaire as they go for middleweight featherweight lightweight. Another decision closer though and shelties just name. I had not even heard of before PF L. Started in in. Here you go. They they made themselves a a young star. Or at least a piece you know, that they can build on. He's a tough kid that just wouldn't go away in multiple times this season where maybe other fighters would a cave just always seemed to be there would never go away. It's just a tough cat. But I don't know that it gets the respect that he deserves. Yeah. I will say I can understand. Why people maybe weren't impressed by his wins. And I won't defend him there.

This is the very first one I did leans when they initially announced their roster. So is before their season, actually, even started which is why you know, cut me a little slack here. The roster actually changed by the time. It actually went to market so to speak. But there are a lot of, you know, relevant name. So I had my favorite to win for lightweight for example, was Islam Mamedov. But the other top choices were Christly quick, Chris Wade and Rashid Baga made off two guys that Natan sheltie beat. Just wanted to and that when people were upset with that one too cluding, obviously, Chris Wade. But you know, the thing the thing is about him is that we we saw pressure and how difficult it was the deal with and I actually had them in my defense on as the other choice here for for for a guy to watch as far as the sleeper because when I was watching this footage. It was tough because he didn't go against top level guys. But knowing he was going at American top team and seeing a skill level. He just reminded me of a more technical Diego.
