Adriane Bracciale for Attorney General

This administration loves to talk about small government and states’ rights – until it benefits working class people. Under my watch, California will continue to resist the policies of the Trump/Pence/Sessions administration that hurt the people of California.

No cooperation between California law enforcement and Border Patrol/ICE.

No immigration holds on people arrested for state crimes. No participation in turning people over to be deported. Prosecutors will receive training on the law mandating them to take immigration consequences into account when prosecuting legal residents and undocumented immigrants (this can tie into elimination of bias continuing legal education that is mandatory for all lawyers).

No collusion between California and the Feds on their draconian stance on marijuana.

The people of California have spoken. Marijuana is legal here and it’s here to stay. I would oversee a review of past prosecutions under laws changed by Prop 64, with a priority toward anyone currently incarcerated who should be released. There are convictions that need to be reversed and felony convictions that need to be reduced to misdemeanors. The burden should not be on those prosecuted to file petitions, especially if incarcerated. For decades, there has been disproportionate punishment of people of color in the war on drugs from policing through sentencing, and I won’t stand for a racial divide where past marijuana policy is still punishing many while others profit.

Trump Administration Will Let States Require People To Work For Medicaid

The Trump administration is encouraging states to require “able-bodied” Medicaid recipients to work or volunteer in order to keep their health insurance coverage.

On Thursday, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services, issued new guidelines for states that want some adults to work in exchange for the health insurance coverage.

Drunk mom crashes with 2-year-old in car, cops say. But that wasn’t the worst of it

The Florida Highway Patrol arrested Brianna Dee Knox, 28, of Beverly Hills, on charges including driving under the influence, child neglect, leaving the scene of a crash and battery on a law enforcement officer.

Knox drove recklessly and crashed into four cars on I-4 at about 5 p.m. Tuesday, the FHP said. Knox’s red 2001 Honda broke down under an overpass, then she got out of the car and started acting “erratically and disturbed,” the FHP said.

Hey gang.
We straight kick it on this one.
We riff over some episode titles while William tries to figure out what the heck darn is going on with this new mixer board.

That’s right.

Thanks to folks hitting up the patreon and the paypal, we were able to quickly replace the 14 year old mixer and get back on the mic.

Speaking of on the mic, we’re also now working with two separate microphones and we can have our own settings.

Swatting prank leads to death of Kansas man

Wichita, Kansas- Swatting is what happens when someone makes a call to a police department with a false story of an ongoing crime – often with killing or hostages involved – in an attempt to draw a large number of police officers to a particular address. Swatting has gained traction across the country with online gamers, and the FBI estimates there are about 400 cases of swatting each year.

In Kansas, a man is now dead because of swatting prank. Wichita police originally received a call that a man had an argument with their parents, shot them and the shooter was holding his remaining family members hostage.

Officers went to the 1000 block of McCormick, preparing for a hostage situation and after they “got into position and a male came to the front door,” according to Deputy police Chief Troy Livingston. “As an unidentified man came to the front door, one of our officers discharged his weapon.”

Livingston didn’t say if the man, Andrew Finch, 28, had a weapon when he came to the door, or what caused the officer to shoot the man. Finch’s family says he did not have a gun and there are no guns in the house. Livingston added  he doesn’t think Finch fired at officers, but the incident is still under investigation. Finch later died at a local hospital. The name of the officer, who is a 7 year veteran of the force, has not been released, but a spokesperson for the department has said the officer will be on paid leave while the incident is being investigated.

A series of Twitter posts screenshotted by the Wichita Eagle suggests that Finch became the unintended victim of a “swatting” prank stemming from a heated discussion over a Call of Duty bet. Two gamers had an argument over a $2.00 bet and eventually one of the gamers called police to swat the other. However, the swatter had the wrong information and sent police to Finch’s home, not the other gamers home.

Utah man celebrates Christmas with explosives, a battle axe, and a police standoff

CEDAR CITY, Utah – Cedar City Police shot a suspect who was wearing body armor after he threatened officers with a “battle ax” early Christmas morning. Late Christmas Eve, officers were called to a home on the 1800 W. block of Clark Parkway in Cedar City about a man who threatened to harm himself in a home where children were present.

Iron County deputies and the SWAT team were called in when the suspect, 38-year-old  Benjamin Dee Wilcken, barricaded himself in the garage. Authorities said Wilcken threatened officers and nearby residents with the detonation of explosives.

Law enforcement evacuated surrounding homes as a precaution. Officers searched for explosives, but none were found. Authorities then negotiated with Wilcken for nearly two hours.

He failed to comply with officers and threatened them with a weapon he referred to as a “battle ax.” At one point, Wilcken charged police and two officers tried to subdue him with tasers and were unsuccessful. A third officer shot Wilcken when he ran back into the garage.

Officers tried to negotiate with Wilcken for several more hours before he surrendered. Wilcken was wearing “military-style body armor” when the officer shot him and was not seriously injured. Authorities said Wilcken also suffered a few self-inflicted injuries that were not life-threatening.

Wilcken was treated at the hospital and released to the Cedar City Police Dept.

He has been booked into the Iron County Jail for aggravated assault again law enforcement, making terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and intoxication.
