Libby Schaaf Defends Her Record, San Jose Homelessness, SF Pride (Episode #333H)

KQED 9: Fri, Jun 24, 2016 -- 8:00 PM

Libby Schaaf Defends Her Record
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf sits down with Thuy Vu for a Bay Area exclusive interview about the scandals surrounding the Oakland Police Department. At least 14 Oakland police officers are under investigation for alleged sexual misconduct involving a teenager. The city has also opened investigations into other police misconduct allegations, including racist texts sent by officers. The department lost three police chiefs within nine days, and now some are questioning Mayor Schaaf's ability to lead.

San Jose Homelessness
For five years, Leonard Jackson lived in "The Jungle," a massive homeless encampment that was cleared out in 2014. Now, through a city program, he has housing and a paycheck. Still, there are more than 4,000 homeless people in San Jose. Thuy Vu takes a closer look. She's also joined by Ray Bramson, San Jose's homelessness response manager.

SF Pride
The recent mass killing of 49 people at a gay dance club in Orlando has led to an outpouring of grief and anxiety in the LGBT community as well as concerns about security at this weekend's San Francisco Pride celebration. KQED's Senior Editor for California Politics and Government Scott Shafer talks to state Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) and Rebecca Rolfe, executive director of the San Francisco LGBT Community Center, about how the Orlando massacre is coloring this weekend's Pride celebrations.

Brock Turner Case, End of Life Option Act, Threshold Choir, Primary Election Recap (Episode #332H)

KQED 9: Fri, Jun 10, 2016 -- 8:00 PM


Brock Turner Case
The case of Brock Turner, a 20-year-old former Stanford student convicted of rape, has sparked widespread outrage from those who say the six month sentence he received is too lenient. The case is fueling debate about sexual assault on campus and how class and privilege play out in the criminal justice system. It's also prompted a recall of the Santa Clara County judge who presided over the case, Aaron Persky.

Guests:
• Prof. Michele Dauber, Stanford Law School
• Katy Murphy, Bay Area News Group reporter

Election 2016: Primary Recap
This week's historic primary election established Hillary Clinton as the first woman to top a presidential ticket. The election also resulted in a series of heated November runoffs, including the race to replace retiring Senator Barbara Boxer. KQED's California Politics and Government senior editor Scott Shafer discusses what's ahead.

End of Life Option Act
This week California became the fifth state in the nation to legalize so-called "aid in dying" with the End of Life Option Act. The law allows adults diagnosed with less than six months to live to request prescriptions to end their lives when they choose. Dr. Lonny Shavelson, a Berkeley-based physician who founded a practice in response to the new law, joins Thuy Vu.

Threshold Choir
A Bay Area group uses music to help ease the journey through the final days of life. The Threshold Choir says its mission is to sing for and with those at the thresholds of life. KQED Newsroom gets an intimate inside look into the group's work.
