"One KFC, Kate, thanks for drop by being part of the conversation this, and we got a lot of things to talk about actually this is. The the first two things I wanna talk about kind of roll into one because it has to do what I think. The the potential exists for people to come together to really truly come together rather than seizing upon a a crisis of swords or a some kind of a challenge to establish a political position rather there the potential exists that when problems become so intense so acute that there's a legitimate hunger for some kind of a solution that I think people will put their their backgrounds their political orientation all sorts of things by the wayside. And and actually look for a solution to the problem. Well, one such problem, obviously in the state of California, and Frank is clear to see in many, west coast, cities, not limited to California this this explosion of the homeless population and unto itself as a problem, certainly. But the fact that there is now. Such a. Such an overwhelming impact in areas in common areas that people need to use as a an opportunity to to transition from one area to the next to walk on sidewalks to to to use parks, which I have to believe her completely and totally underutilized now in most California cities because of the the presence of homeless people, and I will stipulate right up front as always doing. This comes up. It's not a crime to be homeless understand that, but it is a crime to trespass in certain areas where mere presence is not allowed or presence. Under certain conditions is prohibited by law. And of course, the city of San Francisco is probably the worst in the state of California say probably there, certainly at the tip of the spear in terms of this development, but as time has gone on. I think it's safe to say that the problem has spread to into substantial levels, certainly Los Angeles. Not like the old skid row days of of the past where he was limited to areas that were kinda shuttered old businesses. Areas that that just were not thriving any longer. So the impact of people the skid row resonance the skid row occupants was not as as relevant as what? Otherwise be. Now, it's gotten into every place throughout several city Sacramento. Of course, not not protected from what at all the same problem there. And in fact, I think it's the numbers are increasing probably at a higher rate than in San Francisco, Los Angeles. But certainly there's no place in the state that I can see that is completely immune from it that are their high end high rent the suburban enclaves that are now finding that they have the presence of of homeless people. And again, it's not just that they're homeless, but they are squatting in areas that interfere with other people's ability, certainly there, smooth and safe and comfortable ability to get around and go about their business. So this this is a conundrum. That's that's that's frankly, it's in existence everywhere. But. It's this kind of look San Francisco and recognize the the fact that now there's a conflict because the city of San Francisco actually has come up with a plan to two warehouse homeless people, and what the location they have chosen is such that, it's creating a I I think is safe to say a disproportionate adverse impact for some affluent people who have to deal with it. This all began as a disagreement between homeowners and the city of San Francisco itself by late last week that disagreement swelled to a full-fledged battle between groups of San Francisco residents over what to do with this center that has been proposed and intended to provide shelter and resources for the homeless. The debate has centered around a plan actually about a mayor London breed who has proposed the city should a wrecked. A navigation center that's the new term navigation center for the homeless on a stretch of vacant. Land near the city shoreline. Well, you know, that's that is extraordinarily valuable property. This the center, which by the way would offer roughly two hundred and five beds and other resources to the homeless would be situated at seawall lot three thirty. That's a to nearly a two and a half acre parcel two point three acre parcel currently being used as a parking lot. And it sits right off the embarked Darrow near the bay bridge. But here's where the the rub comes in a group of homeowners in nearby luxury apartments are they don't want anything to do with it. So residents in the Rankin hill. And so my areas have have banded together to oppose the navigation center navigation centers as a cute euphemism as a homeless shelter claiming that it would turn the area into a dirty and dangerous locale neighborhood. Members of the group have flooded into community hearings and meetings to voice their concerns. Further. The cause the group started an online crowdfunding page under the name safe embarcadero. For all the groups gofundme campaign has raised more than eighty thousand dollars to to hire a lawyer to push back against the city. As news of the go fund me hit the internet as San Francisco Chronicle article has week other San Francisco residents took bridge with the group's goal. William FitzGerald, a local community activists and supporter of building resource centers for San Francisco's seven thousand or so homeless residents decided to Bill his own go fund me, so Mr. Fitzgerald's competing campaign a safer embarcadero. For all intended to raise funds to support. The building of the nab navigation center in the area and coming up at terms like navigation center is a way to kind of dodge what it really truly is. I think it's crafty. I think it's less than candidate in terms of describing with this place. We'll be. This is a homeless center for people to crash to get cleaned up for a while to take on nutrition to to bathe presumably, and I would hope that there would be some rules. That means that people are going to want to hang around get close, but not necessarily all the way immersed in there because they don't fundamentally want to comply with those rules. They'll want to have their dogs that want to have their booze wanna have other drugs that presumably would not be allowed in this place. If so then it's an exercise in futility from the jump. So Mr. FitzGerald gofundme page went up on Thursday of last week by Friday. The group had raised tens of thousands of dollars and was steadily gaining more supporters as word of the efforts spread viral. Markelle Benny out the tech billionaire and founder of Salesforce donated ten thousand dollars to Mr. fans, Joe FitzGerald campaign. The comb founders of twenty oh match Mr. benef- with thousand of their own hours later, Jack Dorsey, co founder of Twitter donated twenty five thousand of his own money to the project. So the issue is far from settled as both groups continue to jockey for support both for and against the project. But at least one of them has pulled ahead by Monday afternoon. The safer campaign ad managed to raise one hundred and forty five thousand dollars out pacing the opposing campaign by sixty grand and roughly a third of the time. So here's the deal, you have competing forces where you have folks who are not involved in that area. People who do not live in that embark Daryl area and are not going to be affected not going to be burdened by what goes on there that are that are. Infusing the the campaign or to to allow this to occur with money. The people who legitimately lived there. And we'll be affected by it are trying to do their own effort to keep it from happening. Eventually, I would hope that that at some point. There will be a recognition of the common factors presented by this. And people will come together as you start to see the honestly the spread of diseases lawlessness. The the the the adverse impact on the the hospitality and dining establishments in that area, which have been very very popular for forever. And is that takes place presumably people from different opposing points of view on. This may have the potential to come together that is taking place right now. With in reaction to something. This data California has done by way of really severely limiting the ability to punish people youthful offenders or to at least protect there would be victims from their anticipated. I think predictable further criminality, we'll talk about that. We take care of a real quick break here. Take care some of the business, but I'll I'll share with you some very specific crimes in this region that have prompt people together to oppose a course of action again created by the legislature signed into law by the governor last year that severely limits. The extent to which the state of California can protect people from those folks who have graphically demonstrated their ability and their tendency to commit agreed crimes against other human beings. That's coming up after this nine one six nine to one fifteen thirty eight. Eight hundred eight three four fifteen thirty were conversation coming up after this don't go away..

I'll pass the thirty five to the thirty six along the right ash Mak Wilson drags him down to the turf, a gain of eleven running through tackles almost makes you more upset if your bulldog fan when he did that slide on third down that he could have very easily picked up the first down.

"So Alabama 's offense. Take it back. Alabama's defense remains on the field with Mississippi State set for a fourth down attempt at the Alabama forty. On the day. Mississippi State has not attempted afford down try if you think back to the third quarter they were going to try one. And then they got a delay of game. Penalty before they got the playoff then punted away twenty one to nothing Alabama with the lead. They were marching the ball up and down the field in the fourth quarter. Eventually when Alabama gets the football back. I'm very curious to see who the quarterback will be for the crimson tide will be interesting to see. To us back out. There certainly looked like he was struggling to get off the football field on that last series. Watching Mack Jones who is the backup today with Jalen hurts still banged up with a lower body injury Mack Jones looks like a guy who's been told. He's going into the game. Sill fourth down at six for Mississippi State, two receivers left. Justin Johnson tight end. All right motion man in the backfield is heiress Williams. Fitzgerald will throw blitz coming over the middle of all is bad down down by Sabeer McKinney. The sophomore coming from the strong safety. Spot was in FitzGerald space before he could deliver the football. Every third down or fourth-down situation. Alabama's bringing pressure offensive line not able to pick everybody up and fit jail. Doesn't have read who can get open even for five six seven yards. So Mack Jones will take over at quarterback Josh Jacobs with him to a tongue. Low is only thrown one fourth quarter pass today, though, I don't know that it's because of the lead. I think it's because of him being banged up. Jacobs will take the hand off and go to the nearside breaks. Tackles should have been almost was stopped for no gain ends up being stopped by Willie gay after a gain of two to the nearside really have to tip your cap for this Mississippi State defense when your offense is not doing anything. It's very easy to become disillusioned defensively. But this defense has only gotten better as the game was going along. Tucker Bilo on a stationary bike on the near sideline riding very slowly. With the training staff around him Mack Jones the redshirt freshman quarterback he forced to fire a pass early. As the blitz was coming after Jones dislike did the starter. Earlier that pants bounces before it gets to. Jalen Waddell incomplete now third-down Cobi Jones with a good pressure. There are you can definitely a difference in the Cornerbacks and their accuracy. You're talking about to who so Heisman Trophy candidate. And now, you gotta third-string guy in there who doesn't have near the confidence. And he's the second string guy this week. But you're right third string for reps. And now he's under pressure. Let's coming up, but he gets the screen away a great job shedding the tackle though, shedding the block by the Mississippi State defense when it gets there. I think that's Jeffrey Simmons who is quick to get to the receiver. And if that would have been a first down and more for Josh Jacobs. It ends up being a loss of two. But it was set up very well. Simmons did a nice job recognizing the screen Ilene back and making the tackle Simmons six four three hundred pounds and very very athletic Dedrick Thomas back deep for the return to our left for Mississippi State, put his heels on the twenty five they come after Mike Bernier. He gets off a good punt Thomas drifts right hall, sit into the twenty five of the fair. Catch a forty.
