>>well voters in san francisco will elect a new district attorney this november, the election is about 6 weeks away and these are the 4 candidates who are running and we have a live debate with them right here on kron 4 you can watch it on our ap exclusively, which is crime. a big chunk of
10:32 pm
what these candidates had to say because it is a big election. there is a lot at stake. so here now is part 2 of the debate. but you saw only on kron on. >>chase is this question is for yout is clear and we've been touching on this. hall or drugs do play a role in some of the collisions that we've referenced a chase you've got some pushback when you seem to describe first time drunk driving as a victimless crime. let me get your chance to second thoughts about that. >>i can't have second thoughts about a position take let's be real clear on how the law works. there's one section of the local code that criminalizes drunk driving where there is no injury or accident. there's a separate section, the vehicle code that criminalizes drunk driving where someone is injured. the section. 23 1.52, we're no one's injured luckily because the police do their job and get drunk drivers off the streets before collision. vehicle code section, 23, one 53 when the police only arrived after someone's been
10:33 pm
harmed. i want for a type crimes, including from driving where someone's actually harmed and they have a victim's first approach district attorney and that means notifying every victim of every crime what we're doing and using courtroom space between shore that those cases where someone has actually been directly injured the number one priority for my office and for the hall of justice. and top for everybody else would start with a leaf. >>we've how seriously would you take on operating a vehicle under the influence. >>very seriously and those are among the most serious offenses we have in san francisco. and it's important to note that studies have shown the drunk drivers only cost about one out of every 80 times they drive drunk. so when we're talking about first-time offenders are probably talking about 80 of time to offenders. they're just caught for the first time and so we don't know how many victims there could be on the streets as a result of their previous drunk driving when we get those opportunities to intervene and create a strong deterrent we need to take those so you will not see any letting up out of me, like a
10:34 pm
district attorney when it comes to the seriousness. the da's office takes those contrived cases we need to protect everyone on the streets. my office is one block away from 3 of the pedestrian fatalities that occurred in in the city over the last 6 months that could be any of my co-workers academia my way out to lunch, i take these incredibly seriously and that's a sort of dedication and bring its and this skip it. how we want to fix the broken criminal justice system. and there's many things that we need to fix how we prosecute duis is not one of them. >>it is one crime where it has the lowest recidivism rate which means we successfully prosecute someone for a dui and 3% of the time they do it again so we actually prevent future harm and that's why these are not victimless crimes just dui has to be treated with the seriousness that we know how dangerous it is to drive under the influence on our streets and at a moment in time in san francisco. you know look i'm raising my 3 daughters here my
10:35 pm
mom is a senior citizen. the idea that we would let up change how we're handling one of the crimes that have successfully deterred dangerous behavior is reckless and as district attorney everyone can count on a partner in me in prosecuting duis effectively as we've done in the past and holding people accountable, so that they know not to have that drink and get in the car and drive on our streets. you can see. the change that has taken overly technical position as to the definition a victimless because. >>in terms of public safety respect to drunk driving the set. the public is the victim here. it's not just about. people in their cars or their passengers. it's about pedestrians about bicyclists about other motorists. people who are living in buildings even. john driving is that. one of the most important crimes that we try as misdemeanors in san francisco and it is a critically important one because of the dense urban nature of our
10:36 pm
city. it's not something that is a victimless by any stretch of the imagination. it is a man actually some of the proposals that chase a has talked about are actually illegal please. so the idea that we're going to divert are doing a deferred entry of judgment for a first time victimless dui it is actually something that we're not able to do as prosecutors and prosecutors should be upholding the law that's time chasing would you like to respond absolutely you know i think it's telling as we have this conversation. >>there's one of us up here who actually works in san francisco's home justice today. i'm the only one who understands the critical crisis that we're having every day with lack of access to courtrooms with lack of resources for district attorneys in for judges to do the difficult work of trying cases like murder and rate an armed robbery cases that today take in some instances, 10 years to get to trial. this is where someone has been directly in gravely injured killed. and right now the problem at 30 seconds to
10:37 pm
respond since i was invoked multiple times. right now. 2 thirds of the trials in san francisco for misdemeanors that'the highest percentage of any county in the state and the results are deplorable rather than the time i'm sure half the cases, let's hope people kind knife away. >>and hearing from women have been raped or sexually assaulted that their case is just sit at the district attorney's office with charging decisions not made and cases rarely prosecuted. s easy currently a sexual-assault survivor is petitioning the supreme court after she says the sfpd did not test her rape kit. you are the police commission president during part of the time period in question. it's a dismissed the claim how would you reassure sexual-assault victims. their cases would be given the resources that they deserve. >>what happened to the victim in that case is completely unacceptable and when i learned of it on the police commission i made sure that her kit was tested and not
10:38 pm
only was her kid tested, but identified that what happens in too many cities across this country is backlogs of rape kits are created because a detective in the police department decides whether or not to test test that kit does it go to the property room or does it go to the crime lab. and so many of these kids go to the property room and they never get tested, it's it's a determination made by a police officer whether they believe the victim that perpetuates so much victim shaming and blaming and it stop to change that policy all of the kids are immediately sent to the crime lab for testing and moreover we set timelines of how quickly they had to be tested. and we required reporting to victim so what happened to her will never happen again. and david to put a bill before the sacramento. legislature, that actually codified this and required other jurisdictions to do the same. so no one on this stage has done more than i have have to protect victims of sexually violent and that's why i have the support of san francisco when his political committee. >>stay on this topic everybody else starting with nancy would
10:39 pm
you handle sexual-assault cases differently as district attorney and if so how. i think one of the issues that have has come up during this election season is that we really don't treat victims. the way that we should and that's one thing that will change one of many things that will change from the district attorney i think we need to take an approach where we actually have not just a victim contact when you know a case goes to trial or we need somebody to testify. victims should be a part of the process and informed of the process, according to marsy's law which is a constitutional right the car and the victim's right every single step of the way so whether it's a point of investigation if it's approved charging or whether it's about to go to trial or about to go to arraignment or any type of core process. we need to have the district attorney's office really invested in not only communicating with victims but communicating with them in the language of their preference and in a culturally competent way so that they feel involved howard in the system and not victimized again. and chase
10:40 pm
same question. >>we know i laid out a really detailed plan it on my website for wage morning dramatically improve response to sexual-assault it's a priority for me, and it's a priority for everyone who cares about public safety and victims rights in this city what we're doing right now the status quo is totally unacceptable. i want to go back to where this conversation started because facts matter and history matters. there's a reason why susie is a defendant in the lawsuit that you mentioned heather and this notion that we have a backlog of cases is really a misnomer it's not a backlog. a backlog suggests that those kids were going to get tested. they were never going to get tested. heather marlatt that's her name and she sued susie in the city of san francisco, the it after repeated meetings with everybody high and low. she was not given just as she was not treated with dignity. she has told her story she has come forward and have the courage and we need to encourage other people who suffer some more states to do the same refusing to test rape kits for injecting millions of dollars in grant money that would help test rate cut is
10:41 pm
exactly the opposite of what we should do it. says he would do >>yet again. facts matter here. every court that has looked at this case has been dismissed any finding of any wrongdoing on behalf of me or the police commissioner of the city but that's not issue here. the issue is we know we're failing victims evy day. we know that we can do better and what i've committed to is doing what i did at the police commission get to the root of the problem, too many women are being told we can't win their case and so what i've said is when the first 100 days is d a all look at every case we've rejected bring in the best prosecutors at best investigators and make sure we can prosecute and hold people accountable for sexually violent. thank you. >>i have spoken to the survivor sexual-assault who is suing susie in the us supreme court and it's really important to be clear because we're all lawyers on the stage. there's never been an on the record on the merits determination of the claim that she's brought the case was dismissed in lower courts based on procedural technicalities on special invitations she deserves her day in court and
10:42 pm
sexual-assault survivors around san francisco deserve their day in court. heather marlatt was one of 757 women who reported sexual-assault in a given year. the da's office only got 9 convictions after trial that's 1.3% and we wonder why reporting rates are so low. and that's why my policy committee has put out what was called by the press, the most detailed specific plan to address this quarter central islands, an online rape kit tracking portal the survivors of sexual-assault can access the whereabouts and the result of the rape kit in real time online there's a technology company that wants to give it to the service to us for free. san francisco hasn't done it know where in california has done it, let's be leaders here on this issue. >>and was and that again would you like to say anything out. the issue of how we deal with a sexually violent in san francisco is at the top of my priorities. >>last year, 21% of women went to san francisco general hospital saying they had been victims of sexual-assault so all my opponents might want to
10:43 pm
take cheap shots. my record is clear i am the choice of women who want a different response on this from sunny schwartz teletype assignment to maryland and brief. a commonly harris. my record is clear i reduced eliminated the backlog of rape kits in san francisco and i will handle this as district attorney. current district attorney there have been no charges filed against san francisco. >>police officers who have fired. their weapon leaf you have said that one officer involved shooting is one too many. but ca a fire you suggesting that officers should not use their weapons against people who are shooting other people. >>i'm saying that our goal should always be to eliminate put officer-involved shootings and that's waiting to move towards de-escalation has been has been critical. i'm one of the first groups that i met with after falling to declare for district attorney was a group of community activists who lost loved ones in officer-involved shootings and
10:44 pm
the really 3 main take away from the concerns of there. these cases are taking forever sites that i'm nervous all every case within 6 months. there was no transparency that's what i'm gonna hold a town hall and explain why am charging or not charging officer and 3 they said it seemed like it was either murder 4 nothing and i said i'm going use my experience as a prosecutor as a lawyer to consider all available charges to deliver some semblance of justice to these families so. there may be tragic instances of officer-involved shootings but i think we as a city and me as district attorney should always be aiming to get back to 0. >>are the same topic is for. everybody else and we'll start with you chase a is there any recent officer-involved shooting in which you believe charges would have been more to it but i don't think it's appropriate to comment on a specification having seen all of the internal investigations on. >>hesitant to do that here what i can tell you is the status quo is not working we need leaders with the independence, the courage and
10:45 pm
the track record of enforcing the law equally of holding police accountable when they break the law and that's my track record a cross examine officers every day in court as a public defender. i shed light on the ongoing abuses in the county jail at the hands deputy sheriffs and for that reason that the deputy sheriffs aave come into this race and spent more than a $100,000 attacking because they know that i will enforce the law equally that's my track record my commitment district attorney to investigate every single officer involved shooting to never allow evidence to be admitted into court winter result of racial profiling racial bias police misconduct and to ensure, but the standard when force against police are the same ones in force against every single one of us. nancy. >>a deputy district attorney in san francisco for almost 11 years before i went over to alameda county. of those years i spent in special prosecutions unit wheri was tasked with investigating and prosecuting officers for
10:46 pm
criminal misconduct. i was also part of a team of attorneys that reviewed officer-involved shootings and so when it comes to holding officers responsible for misconduct, i'm the only one on the stage who has prosecuted police officers in criminal court. and i think that. holding the public's trust and integrity enough when we if when it comes to police officers is one of the most important things that we do it just at the district attorney's office and that we will continue to do that when a well i'm the district. the san cisco examiner called me the face of police reform in san francisco because i terminated more officers for serious misconduct ever been done is present a police commission i got party funny one cameras. >>and change the use of force policy that has resulted in a 30% reduction in use of force by san francisco police officers. and what we need is a district attorney who can be independent and fair. the thing that needs to change that. i've called for is we need the california department of justice to come in and handle these investigations. i

often say that my 10 year-old can tell you that we shouldn't be investigating themselves when there's an officer involved shooting so i've laid out a plan to calling the california department of justice. a specialized prosecutors to prosecute police officers for on-duty and off-duty misconduct and make sure that our process around our investigation is transparent and clear and we let the community know what happened i made the decision we made that hasn't happened enough in the last officer-involved shootings. all right this next question is for nancy. >>san francisco's juvenile hall is scheduled to close within a couple of years there we'll still be juvenile offenders and then see you broken with some of the other stating your belief that there is a need for a juvenile hall in san francisco. in what circumstances should a juvenile be locked up. this is the thing about juveniles in san francisco. we need to treat kids kids. we also need to rehabilitate them and that's part of what is the ultimate goal of the juvenile

law. judge makes a determination. the kid has committed a crime is not safe to release to the public because the public safety yours, a danger or harm to themselves. and that judge makes a determination. the juvenile should be detained. with we don't have a juvenile hall in san francisco. we harm san francisco kids because we're taking them out of their community out of their support networks at a time that is most critical for them. we're going to have to send them to title 15 compliant facilities, either in a neighboring county or somewhere very far away there are 2 juveniles right now that are in los angeles county because we cannot accommodate them and so my question meant to people who support the closing juvenile hall is well who's going to pay for a parent or guardian or you a loved one to go down to los angeles to support these at time. same topic for everybody else starting with susie susie, what should happen to those offenders if and when juvenile hall close us. station that was approved

by the board contemplates a secure detention facility for some kids unfortunately in our society today we have juveniles committing some of our more certain most serious crimes and a judge determines whether it's safe for them to go home and so while that number is probably between 1020. what we know is we're not doing a very good job rehabilitating the juveniles in that category so the opportunity we have is to create a secure detention facility that is more designed to help a kid rehabilitate themselves. the juvenile system is fundamentally different than the adult system. it is expressly designed to rehabilitate our adult system is designed to punish when it comes to kids we've got to have a facility that makes it more likely. they can get the therapy and help that they need and that they can have the type of parent visits that we know helps kid go from. committing harm to rehabilitate themselves we've got a great opportunity here in san francisco to design a juvenile system that fundamentally ends incarceration of kids as we know it and when we do have to detain a child. we make sure that they leave better than they came in. thank you jason.
