"With a look at the day's top local stories. A man who says he was hit by a Tacoma police officer who drove through a crowd over the weekend is speaking out comas. Sue Romero has the story, according to police. The officer who's now on leave, was responding to reports of a street race on Saturday night to Von Williams was there taking video and says he had his back to the patrol car. The next thing he knew, he says he was On the ground and saw someone else under the wheel of the police cruiser. I don't think was an accident at all. I don't think was malicious. I just don't think that officer was being an officer. At that point. In time, At least two people were hurt. Police say there were at least 100 people in the crowd and that the patrol car was surrounded by them shouting and hitting at it. Captain Dan Passion is with the Pierce County Force Investigation team. We need to look at all those circumstances. That's part of the investigation to determine what exactly occurred. The officer is on leave demonstrators Sunday night say they wanted him fired soon. Romero Cos. It's going to take a while to give covert vaccines to everyone currently eligible. But come was Ryan Harris says the state has reached a big mark. The latest update from the state Department of Health shows 500,000 doses administered and reported to the state, which means the number is likely higher. The state is now getting 100,000 doses a week from the Feds with second Dose is arriving on a steady schedule. But the new tier one B group has 1.7 million people. So Assistant Health Secretary Michelle Roberts tell state lawmakers it could take a couple of months to get through them. But she expects to hear about increased vaccine supplies. There are two other vaccines are close to being ready to see emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration. So all those were factor. Obviously on how quickly we can move, Robert says. They're also Working through a backlog of vaccine provider applications so they can meet the goal for the state's capacity. Ryan Harris come, Oh news, say. Lawmakers air close to passing their own covert relief package. Democratic representative Tim Ormsby says relief will be coming for a renter's businesses and land Lorries, the same formula That rental relief was driven out with the cares act money, so landlords are familiar with that process. Tenants are familiar with the application process. Details still have to be workout. Republicans want to spend part of the state's rainy day fund to pay for it. But Democrats haven't committed to that. Detectives have identified another victim of the Green River killer Wendy Stevens is believed to have been killed by Gary Ridgway in 1984 when she was just 14 years old. As their state continues to welcome everyone 65 older to get the covert vaccine, many in their early twenties are receiving a shot. Just across the state line comes Brian Calvert has a closer look once on the same page. With pandemic closures and plans. Washington and Oregon have taken dramatically different approaches in the vaccination process. Priority here remains with medical workers and those age 65 up in Oregon. There's also a priority for medical workers. But there's another group moving to the front of the line. As of now, I support the teachers being pushed to the front of the line for vaccines. Heather is just one of many parents supporting Oregon Governor Cape Browns moved to vaccinate all teachers, regardless of age. The governor seems to understand that older adults in general often have a fatal experience with covert 19. But what is true is that our Children are suffering. She wants the kids back in class, and her move is to make sure teachers are protected. She's also allowing those age 80 and up to be vaccinated. Even though Heather agrees. I feel like we have sort of an ethical quandary on our hands in that the teachers Are being put in the front for the vaccine, but we don't have dates and we don't have a plan for the middle and high school students to start. Steve is a high school teacher. Getting back to school is my main objective..

"Suffice book once again trying to remake reinvent themselves. So oh, it's going to be more private than understand. This is going to be so private the violent type groups could create private forms without the company being able to read their messages, so CNN, it's insured joins us next. Now, you remember there was a Bill that would have made it possible for Seattle to use automated camera tickets for people driving in the bus lanes and block in the box the buses, of course, they get to block the box because they're buses. So that failed for pretty interesting reason, according to one state Senator same goes for the DUI Bill. Another interesting reason that may have failed to earlier we talk with state Senator Joe win about why reason that the Bill. To put cameras on bus, lanes, etc. Reason that didn't pass apparently according to Joe win is that there are legislators who drive in these lanes who have that. Right. Senator. Activated more than that. But for the radio, that's probably pro-pri apart. I think he did sit down more than that. I have been told that you occasionally throw around a colorful word. So I will remind you you can do that to me off the phone which is don't do right now. So. So who are these people name their names? Oh, I think I think the bigger thing is making sure that we provide a safe environment for folks in the crosswalk and for law enforcement as well to to polices to be there. Just laws that are in place right now. And I think the downtown is very tricky to get around, and it really makes it difficult for not transit for people with all to get through unless there's some way to make sure that we can actually enforce it. So I think really what Bill was trying to do was in an appropriate way. Help folks be better about getting through downtown traffic in the best possible. And I think to your point what you said earlier is that I think oftentimes lawmakers at anybody in general they make decisions based off of anecdotal experiences that have had with the specific thing. And I think some folks when we were talking through of issues, they felt very personal in terms of kind of how this may impact that they've experienced. Path, and that's kind of the day brought out but in terms of the actual legislation being path. I think we we ran out of time kind of happened. I think if this conversation with have a week prior. And we had a chance to work out them issue, which we actually did. And then we have the votes to pass it. I think it would have been just fine. But the fact that kinda came up on the last day, and we had to negotiate the budget and other stuff as well. We had an on our run order to pass that day along with other things that were that were pretty important as well. So the fact that it came up on the run order for the last day. I think is cool, but you know, trying to get out on time and on budget is not easy to look that actually led me to my to my next question or rather actually gives in this case. My first question of the the fact that the past the saving phase now of the people who who didn't support this does it actually stand a good chance. I mean, will it be introduced does it stand a good chance of passage next time around. Yeah. No. I think we got it. So. So what's funny is that during that whole dialogue first off our sleep deprived and a bit angry. More than I should have. I love my colleagues defend tastic. But but yeah. So through that conversation, actually that ended up working out really, well, we haven't amendment put onto the Bill to I think actually made it way better because of their feedback. So for instance, the first offense is now just going to be a warning initially be a great period. Now, it's just gonna be a warning. So if you are a person who does not necessarily drive around downtown, very often, you go down there, and you've got stuck because you weren't sure where the lights are going to be that is now warning and tickets are now capped at sixty dollars instead of one hundred and twenty six dollars hundred thirty six dollars before. So that way, this is meant, you know, to hold people accountable when not necessarily break, the Bank, they specified, you know, about twenty intersections of where it could be an also the money after you go to operations and maintenance extent, go towards what's called a multi modal account through the state. So one of the biggest concerns. To the fact that we didn't want to incentivize anybody to give out more tickets. We wanted to make sure that we're doing it for the right reason and not having that problem was important. I think we addressed mostly concerns. That's good to hear Senator Joe wins with us bureau area white center of Sean island, Senator I'd love to one day of a conversation with you about why should not drive in the bus lane on ninety nine north because I do do that. Because there's buses that go through our intermittently every fifteen minutes you've got short on time. I wanted to ask you about this. You mentioned safety the DIY Bill failed. Mike Patton had pushed this this would allow the law. I people to go back in history a little bit further charged people with delays. So that can more quickly become a felony. Apparently as we understand it. This is this is being reported car to reporters Hannah, Scott, Tim, Ormsby democrat, Spokane canvas of did not want this on this voted upon. And it turns out that he had himself DUI charges the DUI for rolling. Eappen in Spokane. Hey, how did you vote on that Bill and be Tim Ormsby really belong in charge of a DUI Bill when he himself has had one. You know, how to come in on the second one I feel maybe be done along there because he went through that experience. So I don't know the context of his situation specifically, I don't remember do we actually get to vote because I don't know if he came out of it bailed it failed, and what we were told is that the state legislature could not find eight million bucks over about four years to to make it easier to charge DUI drivers with a felony eight million bucks. The question is that a lot of money money or? Better question for you. The me when we spent six million to promote the tunnel. I something tells me Senator we could find that money. Yeah. Certainly, and I think it's all about prioritization, terms of what we do best. So he can never make. I'm new at this kind of make an ethical along but noted for for that. Right. Yeah. No. I don't think. So oftentimes people like it's never as black and white as it seems some very curious to get more context in terms of what is being what Padma was thinking as well. I think we did hear this in our communities. I remember what this conversation is about Tom devoted necessarily one of my bills an early focus on it as much as other things that I was working on. But love to reach back and talk to.

So if you are a person who does not necessarily drive around downtown, very often, if you go down there, and you've got stuck because you weren't sure where the lights are going to be that is now warning and tickets are now capped at sixty dollars instead of one hundred twenty six dollars hundred thirty six dollars before. So that way, this is meant, you know, to hold people accountable, but not necessarily break the Bank, they specified, you know, about twenty intersections of where it could be. And then also the money after you go to operations and maintenance expense, go towards what's called the multi modal account through the state. So one of the biggest concerns. To the fact that we didn't want to incentivize anybody to give out more tickets. We wanted to make sure that we're doing it for the right reason. And having that problem, but it was important. So I think I think we addressed their concerns. That's good to hear Senator Joe wins with us bureau area white center of Sean island, Senator I'd love to one day have a conversation with you about why should not drive in the bus lane on ninety nine north because I do do that. Because there's buses that go through intermittently every fifteen minutes if you've got short on time. I wanted to ask you about this you mentioned safety the DIY Bill failed. Mike Patton had pushed this would allow the law. I go back in history a little bit further charge people with delight. So that can more quickly become a felony. Apparently as we understand it. This is being reported car rate or reporters Hannah, Scott Tim, Ormsby democrat from Spokane canvas did not want this this voted upon. And it turns out that he had himself a DUI charges the DUI for rolling ape. And Spokane, hey, how did you vote on that Bill and beat this? Tim Ormsby really belong in charge of a DUI Bill when he himself has had one. You know, I don't know how to come in on the second one. I feel maybe be done along there because he went through that experience. So I don't know the context his situation specifically, I don't remember do we have to get to vote because I don't know if he came out of it failed it failed in what we were told us that the state legislature could not find eight million bucks over about four years to make it easier to charge. DUI drivers villainy eight million bucks. So. The question is that a lot of money living in money or better question for you? The me when we spent six million to promote the tunnel. I something tells me Senator we could find that money. Yeah. Certainly, and I think it's all about vision. Terms of what we do best. So he can never make. I'm new at this. So kind of making this up as a go along but not before for autism. Right. Yeah. No. I don't think. So oftentimes situations like this. It's never as black and white as it seem some very curious to get more context in terms of what worms being what they thinking as well. I think we did hear this in our committees. I remember what this conversation is about this wasn't necessarily one of my bills, not necessarily focus on it as much as say, for instance, other things that I was working on. But I love to reach back and talk to Senator Pat, and he's a great person in the legislature. And he's certainly his background as a prosecutor is one where he had a lot of value for the state as well. So I know that we talked about this in committee. I don't actually know where it stood in the house. But usually when things kind of bubble up to the point where we have ended up, and we kind of dive. Okay, I was one of those things that we can get to appreciate your honesty. Senator Joe win hope you'll come in some time. And and you guys you, and I can have a little bit of a debate about why shouldn't be a scofflaw. You're wrong. You're wrong. The Senator I'm here. This good-humored Ness, this honest, man, right? He didn't say you right either. Though. I know this same. We have a good number today. Senator appreciate your your kindness coming on on short notice. And you're honestly be new this.

And so many people today are working they have to get their kids off to school, and that disruption twice a year is really problematic, and I think unnecessary bipartisan support at the state level, and perhaps the national level to last month.

It's cleared acting Defense Secretary and former Boeing leader Patrick Shanahan of wrongdoing after he was accused of privately promoting Boeing and slamming competitors like Lockheed, Martin ABC news. Correspondent Serena Marshall joining us from Washington DC. Serena what did the Pentagon's inspector general conclude and why? Interviewed more than thirty witnesses including minors, many senior defense officials, and according to the inspector general after more than six hundred pages of unclassified documents and seventeen hundred pages of classified documents relevant to this day. There was just no there's nothing to substantiate. Those claims. This all started because about a month ago they received a complaint that Shanahan quote allegedly took actions to promote his former employer. Boeing we worked for for more than three decades and disparages competitors alike. Lockheed Martin, for example, that would be an ethics violation, but they did a thorough investigation. And basically said there's nothing to it. Does this open the door then for Shanahan to get the job permanently? He has not been nominated for the position and the reason for that likely because it is ongoing investigation. So it'll be interesting to see now if the president now, this is closed decides to actually nominate him for this position. Because once he's nominated he'll have to go sit before congress testimony. So this might still pop up again, it sounds like it could pop up. They could ask him questions about it directly during testimony. But given that the inspector general's office has done this thorough report and signed off now that there was nothing. They showed he mishandled it ethical obligations of Indra guards to billing and its competitors. It's likely that they won't be much to substantiate any concerns that members of congress would have Serena Marshall with us from ABC news. Serena what have we heard from those rivals? You talked about do they smell a political RAD here if they had any reaction individual who spoke about Shanahan making these spare djing remarks. We don't know who that is as for the industry. Stry folks, they been relatively quiet on this. It's not really something for them to get involved in the contracting process in Washington is very very complicated. They have to put out bids for these contracts to how they can handle them to show, the personnel, and the resumes and one contract that a department of defense individual might be applying for our company might be applying for can take months from when as I posted to win it is awarded, and it's not something that the department of Defense Secretary normally would be dealing with.

"Off on the candy. Mike and talk show love to get your thoughts on this at nine eight nine seven three. I don't know anyone who isn't outrage about this on Friday. We talked to Cairo sevens. Amy Clancy about a cold case from two thousand six it was solved because a rape kit. Finally got tested. This is a man who dragged the twelve year old girl out of the torchlit parade in raped her. He's now been charged. Charge arrested and charged by the way, the girl was a runaway looking for her mom. That's what this this bond stress mandate runaway looking for a moment, the torchlight parade and finding out the DNA testing has been done. It was I don't remember the numbers six million rape kits that were untested in. I don't six million dollars you six million dollars. It wasn't six hundred six men rape kits. So we know this is important Leah Griffin is a rape survivor, and she's been campaigning to clear this backlog average. It takes fourteen months to test a rape kit here in Washington state. And what that means is perpetrators have time to arri offends in the time that it takes the most basic evidence to be tested. So this bills get a mandate that we move that testing time from fourteen months down to six weeks, which is much more reasonable investigative. I hate to say this. But I want to know how many people this this man raped in time between he raped his twelve year old in two thousand six months is finally tested car radios. Hannah's Scott's been falling this in some other. Bills in Olympia. She's on the line with us now Hannah, welcome to the candy MacIntosh show great to be here Todd. So we'll go around the a lot of questions here. Let's start with the update understand that there's a crucial hearing on. This is your stand. This Bill has to make it out by March. I this is the Bill that would clear these these rape kit case is that correct? That's right. So this is and it was actually originally proposed as a six million dollar asking is now thirteen million dollars asking I'll give you a little background here. This has been going on back in two thousand fifteen we found out that we had roughly six thousand rape kits that were untested in the state, but that number everybody was kind of shaky on exactly what that was early last year. Attorney general Bob Ferguson, some grant money from the Justice department was able to do a full count across our state that number came up to about eight thousand that were still sitting on police evidence shelves that have not been submitted. The oldest one from nineteen eighty two. There was also a couple of thousand more that had been submitted but hadn't yet to be tested. So we're right around the ten thousand Mark right now in two thousand fifteen they pass legislation ordering all mandating all new rate gets had to be sent in for testing. They never did anything to mandate that all of those old tests would be sent in for testing. That is what this Bill would do. It also has a lot of money to create this awesome new lab down in Vancouver. Where they have the space already that is modeled doctors modeled after something in Cleveland, Ohio where they had a large backlog than ours, but cleared there is I believe just last year with what's called a high through put labs robotics batch testing. And they got their testing time down from a couple of years to just twenty five days. So. What does that? And it does a few other things. But it really also says deadlines mandating that I believe by twenty twenty two we'd have to have our testing time down from fourteen months to six weeks. What is the opposition? Then to this Bill seems like something that should be universally hailed. Is there any opposition in Olympia for this Bill? I have not heard anyone testify against this attack. A couple of hearing. So far, the issue is look there's a lot of huge priorities that we have to deal with in Olympia. This this session, first and foremost, mental health, right? That's a massive big priority. Other some special education funding things like that. But thirteen million dollars as even attorney general Bob Ferguson's enemy is like a drop in the bucket. So it got some pretty positive feedback even from Tim Ormsby and the hearing that in appropriations today who at the end of that hearing apologized to all of the thousands of women who have not had their kids testing. So there is a lot of support. You're not gonna find any lawmaker who's going to say we don't need to get this done. Whether it it ends up coming out at the end in the budget session, where we have the money to do this remains to be seen. I know there's a big effort. I've watched this for years this. There was a different kind of version of this last session that just didn't make it out. It was a short session. There wasn't money. It doesn't end up being the top priority. There's a lot more noise being made about this this session. This is the most comprehend. Aggressive Bill I've seen so far. And it's got a lot of people behind it. Is there anybody that's pointing to places like Oregon who just last year cleared all their rape kits backlog? Anyway, not necessarily new backlogged ones. And are saying look they could do this North Carolina Fayetteville. They just did this is there anybody looking at these other cities saying why can't we do it like them and giving an actual roadmap of how to get it done. Oh, absolutely. So democratic Representative Tina or wall, she looked at Oregon. She also went to Cleveland the lab, I just mentioned where they cleared their backlog in the interim, and I interviewed her right after she got back from there. I also went down and spent the day at the Vancouver lab with them where they had training from a national expert who helps set up these high throughput labs. And I got to talk to all of the folks who work in the lab, they don't like it either. They they hate that. These are sitting on the shelves. They don't have the staff so this Bill adds money to get in. It's like a dozen more scientists who can come and just be dedicated to getting these testings tests done. But absolutely. They looked at Oregon and all of the other places that have had success, and there's been other cities, you know, Detroit had some but Todd as you mentioned, I think Detroit, they cleared their backlog, and they've found hundreds hundreds of repeat offenders in those that came back in repeat offenders, meaning that they had committed a rape. And we're not brought to Justice prior to the DNA testing being done in the time between that they'd committed other reps. And that's what I'm I hate to think of the rapes this guy could've committed after this one and two thousand six now. Hi disgust with this car radio. Even if this gets cleared, though, even if the backlog that's cleared, and I wish you would call your Representative and your Senator and say vote the thing out now and pass this is ridiculous. Even if it does get cleared. This doesn't doesn't clear up all the problems. Liam griffin. A rape survivor says look there's places where women can't even get a rape kit done. It was shocking. I walked into the emergency room. I told them what had happened, and they shrug their shoulders and said, we don't do rape kits here. And I've seen law and order SVU. I knew what I was supposed to do. And it was absolutely shocking that we have a system that is not equipped to treat survivors. And yes, they referred me to another hospital, but that's not really practical. And is there any discussion on the front end of the of the rape kits situation? In other words, making sure that that law enforcement, and hospitals and emergency rooms actually have the have the tools to actually gather the evidence on the on the front end. Oh, yeah. So what she is talking about right there league Griffin. She's big advocate. And I and I really have to just give her a proper. She was raped in two thousand fourteen and didn't it didn't go well for her with the rape kit backlog and also not having a forensic nurse available for when she went to the hospital, she's been working with Patty Murray. And then also our state legislators over the last several years to get all of this legislation passed right now, she's working with Senator Patty Murray. They've just reintroduced legislation that believe it's the third or fourth time in the last couple of years in congress for these they're called sane, nurses, sexual assault nurse examiners. There are Lia went. She was raped in Seattle in two thousand fourteen she went to a major hospital in Seattle to have a rape kit done. They did not have anyone there. She was told to go to another hospital and she points out when I've talked to her before you don't have that state of mind to go to another hospital. You barely got to the one year at after you've been raped, and that is not that is all over the country. They don't know how big the problem is though the legislation in congress. Right now would would do that would do an audit to make sure how big is this problem? There is I know Jefferson County in our state doesn't have any a lot of the rural areas don't have those nurses available. Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski from Alaska is on Boorda co-sponsor of that Bill wearing Alaska and the northern parts you have to take two flights and travel several hours before you can even find one of those rate, nurses to do anything like that. So it's all over the country. So that Bill in congress would really do an audit. Find out how big that problem is. And then also like you're talking about Mike get that training. There's no uniform policy for doing a rape kit for both law enforcement, and for those folks at the hospital to how how do you interact with someone who's just been sexually assaulted both as an investigator and as a person in the hospital. Well, Hannity, we appreciate you paid attention this down there, and everybody's behalf. And I wanted to just say again get on the phone with the the legislature. Call your state Representative you can get the number online. They'll help you. Find your Representative and make it absolutely clear you want the rape kit past and you want. Funding. So that women do have access to eating into rape kits done. It's a joke that we've not been able to come up with thirteen million dollars on this Hannah drive safe. We appreciate you very much. Thanks for paying attention to this. All force. You bet. Thanks. We'll come back. Wow. Do I really want to do this transition though? I.
