This all took place after Chen says he tried to stop the man who was using a bike to do tricks on benches from damaging those benches. Chen doesn't think his ethnicity nor his job was a factor in the assault. I think this is the situation where the person was doing something which I was just nicely trying to tell them that You know other people use the area. They used the bench and when they chip away the corners of the bench. It's just you know, it, Z something we all enjoy. Dr. Chin says he was knocked down and punched his. He tried to get up.

"This is w. a. m. u. Eight eight five. I'm jonathan wilson. The dc region saw its population grow over the last decade according to the us census bureau. Dc population count grew by fourteen point six percent but the city's official count ended up being a little bit lower than the projected yearly estimates prompting some local officials to question the accuracy of the data. Joining me now to help us understand. What the numbers mean. Is jerry green. She served as the national urban league. Twenty twenty cents adviser. Hello there ms green hello there. So the census bureau's previous annual population projections for dc stated. More than seven hundred. Thousand people lived in the city and in fact many people remember mayor. Muriel bowser officially celebrating the city hitting that seven hundred thousand resident mark. Couple of years ago. The official count. Now that we have the two thousand twenty cents is just over six hundred eighty nine thousand. What do you think. Some of the factors are that played a role in that lower population. Count well as know this. Last decade has seen a large shift in the population however washington. Dc particular has one of the highest level of venture fixation in the country but one of the things that think holders are concerned about a prophet everywhere. The the Twenty twenty cents. A count does not match the population estimate that the census bureau collected for The stay is that perhaps relooking at a significant undercount. We don't have a federal prison here and we know that incarcerated individuals are there. Count goal to other places. They both other locations across the country. Get the benefit the political representation that we don't get because we you know we're not a state. It could channel for large undercounted the population. We have a lot of rental units. Here we know. And i think the bureau but agree that it didn't do a good job of counting multi locations renters renters are perpetually undercounted and to the extent that we still have a resident population here That are that reside and multi family housing. That would be an issue as well. So how does this. New census count affect the amount of federal funding. Dc will receive over the next ten years. I mean that's of course. One of the reasons why people pay such close attention to the census. We know that federal funding allocations are directly tied to the count. And so if you count the if you can see that twenty three thousand two hundred seventy one individuals. That's the difference between the dc population estimate. What the number came out in looking at inefficient amount of money In federal resource allocation that our community will miss and we know that as we emerge from the pandemic unique equitable recovery. So more detailed information is coming later. This summer about sis demographics graphics. Why do you think it's particularly important in this age where people are fighting for racial equity to get an accurate count of different demographic groups black latino immigrant residents. Why is that important. Because it's about power and might we've talked about and And undercount of our population means that you know we. Don't we move we now. We moved seats in congress. We lose representation. We lose people The the opportunity to both people who share our interests and values and will protect Protected from things like Gerrymandering and voter suppression and things like that. That's what it's all about the records and -tations and back We also know that. The count is tied to the electoral college and The electoral college has become pretty important. in the last two presidential election and so i'm most definitely Is a significant factor in in terms of the quality of our lives every day from a political standpoint. All right jerry. Green served as the national urban league. Twenty twenty cents adviser ms green. Thanks for joining us..

Over 2 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered in Washington

"Carlos Brian Calvert has the latest now on the number of Washingtonians being vaccinated. 455 new cases of covert 19 were reported in the last day and there were 22 additional deaths. The numbers are getting lower, and it could be in part because the number of those being vaccinated just eclipsed two million to be exact. As of earlier this week. 2,065,000 plus doses of the vaccine have been putting people's arms or 80% of the vaccine supply held by the state of Washington. The majority of these are first doses, but even more promising, the governor's goal of 45,000 vaccinations in one day has actually been achieved. The numbers are growing because there are more places you can actually get the covert vaccine matter Of fact, Seattle's to city run sites in South and West Seattle are for everyone over the age of 65 starting this week, Even though we've been told sometime mid month there is still no official opening date yet for Seattle's first mass vaccination site at Blumenfield.

Those who worked with the public including transit and grocery store employees, if enough vaccine can be shipped us that start date is March 22nd April 12. We hope that people who are 50 years and older who have two or more comb abilities will be eligible for the vaccine. Two weeks later on April 26 people were 16 or older and have one vulnerability will be eligible.

Microsoft campus near Seattle will be used to administer COVID-19 vaccine

"Governor Insley announced effective immediately. Any Washington resident age 65 or older can now get the vaccine for covert 19 almost Brian Calvert, with more details as to how the state is going to accomplish this. In his address yesterday, Inslee unveiled plans to open massive vaccination sites across the state, utilizing a syriza of privately owned facilities, including a Redmond campus. That's virtually a ghost town these days. We don't have employees and all of our buildings these days, so we're gonna be working with local hospitals. S so that they can administer their vaccines in a building on our campus. Microsoft's Brad Smith is on board. So is Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson. We're here to support the governor, Dr Shaw and all of their staffs who are working tirelessly to serve the people of the state of Washington, a vaccine and every coffee shop. Maybe not, But plans aren't final just yet by lowering the vaccination age to 65. More than 1.5 million Washingtonians are now eligible, meaning the state must now create capacity to avoid long lines like we saw last week at a vaccination site in swim.

"washingtonian" Discussed on WAMU: Local News

"This is w amu eighty eight five morning edition. I'm esther chummy keeley. Most of us are still trying to process the events of wednesday when a mob of insurrectionist storm the capitol building while congress was certifying the electoral college votes robert mccartney senior regional correspondent with the washington post joins us now to examine how and why. The events of that day fell apart so dramatically bob. Let's start with the failure on the part of capital police to secure the building. What went wrong. Well mainly there. Were not enough police. Given the number of rioters they were just overwhelmed. They also weren't prepared for this. They weren't in uniform a riot gear. They didn't have big enough barriers. The barriers were waist height. They looked like bicycle racks. Also once it got breached once the capital got breached. They were focused primarily on getting the legislators and staff to safety and so they weren't so focused on preventing the rioters from getting further into the capital or much less clearing them out so the riders were given extra time to sort of roam around and break things and steal things and take pictures of themselves. So why did this. Why weren't they prepared. I mean mainly because. They said that they were expecting a mostly peaceful demonstration and not a violent assault but looking back. That just seems ludicrous. There was ample reason to expect. This might happen. My colleague marissa lang at the post wrote multiple stories ahead of time saying that there was a high risk of violence on the part of these people who initially were protesters on rioters and the washingtonian magazine published a story on tuesday saying explicitly that they had seen a lot of discussion on far-right websites of plans to quote occupy or quote storm. The us capitol. So if washingtonian magazine knew that this was a possibility. Why did the capitol police. And even the dc police say that they were not expecting anything of the sort so then how did capital police restore order. And what type of help did they get well. They mainly were able to restore order by calling in assistance from outside which is of course what they should have done in the first place i mean. He should have arranged with law enforcement agencies notably the metropolitan police department of the district of columbia and federal agencies to get help. They did that once. The assault had taken place. They called in the metropolitan police department and other agencies. Police were called in from poland and from virginia. It seems as though mainly it was the reinforcements from the district. Police department that provided the additional help. That was necessary ultimately to clear out the capital and get the rioters. To disperse there have been reports and even videos of some capital police appearing to tolerate the rioters white in these officers. Do more to stop this insurrection. Oh that's definitely going to be a part of this investigation. There were video clips. Showing police retrieving as the rioters advanced or stepping out of the way. There's at least one. Example of i think capital police taking a selfie with the rioters. So this arouse speculation that some of the capitol police were sympathetic to the rioters caused and let them let those sympathies prevent them from doing their job of protecting the capital. I certainly think that could have played a role in general though. I think they were just so outnumbered that they had to withdraw or wait for reinforcements. Another related question is why weren't more of the rioters arrested. There were hundreds there Yesterday in dc superior court only forty were actually brought up on charges during the event. I think police did not have enough people on hand to arrest them. All it takes a lot of people to detain hold and transferred to jail hundreds of offenders capital. Police had to wait for help just to clear them out. That does not explain though why the police did not arrest them later. Such as when they were outside the capitol but violating curfew at that point. Most of the riders were withdrawing. I think police at that point. We're just glad to see them depart. And this of course. We'll all be addressed in the investigations. You mentioned several times waiting for help and reinforcements. What was the role of the national guard. And all of this we know. Mayor bowser requested assistance from the national guard on tuesday and when the capital went under siege bowser requested more assistance from the national guard but that request was initially denied. Walk us through that okay. There's an important distinction here on the day. Before the riot mayor buzzer requested. And got hundreds of national guardsmen deployed. But they were unarmed and they were there only to provide help in managing traffic during the demonstrations. They were certainly not prepared for a riot now. Once the assault began she requested and others requested more national guard forces but they had to wait quite a while to get it approved mainly because the pentagon and to some extent the white house were very reluctant to have uniformed military involved. You know in police activity and controlling crowds. They thought it didn't look good. President trump apparently was very unwilling to send in the garden and had to be persuaded to do so in part by vice president pence by the time it was approved. The national guard really. It was too late to do much good. It was really capital police. Dc police and some other police forces who ultimately did almost all the work of dispersing the crowd and some dc statehood advocates are using the events of wednesday to further their cause. Yes a couple of things here. Since dc police played such a big role in protecting the capital people are saying. Hey you know the police are basically protecting you. Legislators and they come from a jurisdiction that doesn't have representation in congress so that doesn't seem very fair. And then also. There's this national guard. Mobilization question state governors have the power to mobilize the guard on their own. But because the district isn't a state thousand needed the approval of the federal government and it was slow in coming. Robert mccartney is senior regional correspondent with the washington post.

Trump Supporters To Converge On Washington DC To Protest Election Results

"Far right groups and supporters of the departing president Trump are converging in Washington, D C to protest the results of the free and fair election. Makayla LeFrak of member station W. A. M. You reports This is the third time in less than two months that proud boys another far right. Activists rally in D. C. The protesters have a permit from the National Park Service to gather at the Lincoln Memorial and applause in near the White House. City officials are prepared for the crowds to spread throughout downtown D. C. Mayor Mariel Bowser recognized their right to protest but urged Washingtonians who might disagree to stay away. We're asking D C residents and people who live in the region to avoid confrontations with anybody who's looking for a fight. On the best way to do that is to avoid the area. DC's most prominent resident president Trump Tweeted that he will be at tomorrow's rally. Trump support of the protesters and unfounded claims of voter fraud. Have DC leaders concerned that this week's crowds will be large. 1000 has called in the National Guard to assist with crowd control this week. We will not allow people to incite violence intimidate our residents. Or caused destruction in our city. Violence broke out during both of the previous proud boys protests in December more than 30. People were arrested and eight police officers were injured. Demonstrators also damaged property at four black churches and burn to black lives matter. Banner Yesterday D. C. Police arrested Proud Boys leader and wreak a tar eo on charges of destruction of property as he returned to Washington D. C for this week's rallies. Counter protesters were involved in the clashes last month. But Bowser says the out of town demonstrators at the past pro trump rallies came here looking for a fight. This is serious business. The will of American people through a fair and just election is being questioned in violence is being incited. The city has shut down a number of downtown streets for the next two days. Some businesses are also temporarily shuttering, including the hotel and bar that was a gathering place for proud boys. During the last rallies. During the December protests, four people were stabbed. Nearby. Police chief Robert Conti is trying to drive home one message to people coming into the city to protest firearms. Are not permitted. Repeat firearms are not permitted. Conte says he's been made aware of some protesters plans to bring guns into the city. Even with a concealed carry license. It's illegal to bring a firearm within 1000 ft of any permitted demonstration or areas under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service, like the National Mall. Conti is also concerned about the Corona virus pandemic. Unlike this summer's racial justice protesters, many of the far right activists have not worn masks while demonstrating in D. C. They're going to be a lot of people here. We certainly anticipate that on when we have a lot of people that are in our city, the chances for people to get us sick, namely My officers and other residents. We just want to be very careful with that again. Despite the health concerns, Bowser says police won't be focused on arresting people who violate the city's mask ordinance. She says officers main priority over the next two days is to curb violence and property destruction and keep people out of immediate danger.
