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.
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.
