Nightside with Dan Rea - Rundown for June 11, 2020

Police Reform Moving Fast In Massachusetts. Last night, Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo put out a statement along with Representative Carlos González, the Chair of the Massachusetts Black & Latino Legislative Caucus, that they plan to put new legislation, regarding police reform, on Governor Baker’s desk by July 31st. This new reform bill would include changes to policing such as the abolition of chokeholds and the creation of an independent office to enforce policing standards and certification, among other things. Speaker DeLeo joins Dan to discuss this quick action on Beacon Hill.

Losing Seattle? A group of protesters have taken over the Capitol Hill section of Seattle, causing the local police to abandon their 13th precinct. Protesters are calling this newly occupied area: “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” or CHAZ. President Trump took to Twitter telling Governor Inslee to “Take Back Your City, NOW”! Kirby Wilbur, a Seattle talk show host from KVI, joins Dan to discuss the happenings in Seattle that have been going on for over 3 days now. What should be done with these protesters? Should the military get involved?

How Low Can Joe Go? Democratic candidate for President, Joe Biden was on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah last evening where he told the audience that President Trump is going to try and “steal the election”. Furthermore, Biden says if he wins and Trump refuses to leave, the military will “escort him out”. Is this fearmongering by Biden appropriate?
