    Protesters gather in Harlem on May 30, 2020 to protest the death of George Floyd. Police officers like those from the Phoenix Police Department are the very reason whole communities of color distrust cops and would sooner try to protect themselves than voluntarily call officers to their neighborhoods. Body camera footage ABC 15 obtained revealed barbaric recommendations from three police officers who didn't realize their body camera devices were recording. The officers called demonstrators protesting police violence at a Black Lives Matter rally on Oct. 17 “dickheads” and “asshole kids,” according to the news station.  And when one of the cops questioned why responding officers didn't “stomp on them right away,” another said: "Gas em.

    The Central Coast Section alerted member schools Friday that Santa Clara County officials are not allowing student-athletes to participate in high school and club sports simultaneously. The alert follows an announcement Wednesday by the California Interscholastic Federation that student-athletes would not have to choose one over the other. They could do both. The CIF made its decision to waive its rules for the remainder of the academic year after consulting with California Department of Public Health officials, who recommend in their youth sports guidelines that athletes stick to one cohort or sport. But the CDPH told the CIF that its guidelines were not a mandate, just recommendations. So after announcing in December that its rules that prohibit playing high school and club sports at the same time would be enforced, the CIF reversed course. But Santa Clara County did not. The county known for having...

The new strain, known as B.1.1.7, has not officially been found in L.A. yet, but Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said Monday said that does not mean it is not already here. “We have not found any evidence of the variant in that first group of tests that we ran,” said Ferrer. “It just means it...

    A Georgia man’s effort to nullify the state’s election results was rejected on Monday in Fulton County Superior Court by Judge Jane Barwick. The loss came the same day as former Trump attorney Sidney Powell failed in court when a federal judge dismissed her "Kraken" lawsuit.

The lawsuit claimed Georgia had “so mismanaged the election process that no one can have faith that one of their most sacred rights under the United States and Georgia Constitutions, voting, is being protected.” Barwick reportedly rejected Wood’s lawsuit because she ruled that he wasn’t suing the correct people. Russ Willard from the Georgia attorney general’s office argued that based on Georgia Code, the targeting of defendants Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State...

    Two Georgia counties using the same electronic voting software as a Michigan county that experienced a glitch have also reported encountering glitches during the 2020 election. Voting machines crashed in Georgia’s Spalding and Morgan Counties on Tuesday morning because of what election officials described as a “glitch.” A Georgia election official said that a technical glitch that halted voting in the two counties was caused by a vendor uploading an update to their election machines the night before the election, according to a report by Politico. “That is something that they don’t ever do. I’ve never seen them update anything the day before the election,” said Marcia Ridley, elections supervisor at Spalding County Board of Election. Ridley added that she did not know what the upload contained. The report said that the Georgia counties used software made by Dominion Voting Systems — the same software used in most Michigan counties, according...
    Thousands of Michigan ballots that were meant for Republican candidates were wrongly counted for Democrats in at least one Michigan county, according to Michigan Republican Party chairwoman Laura Cox, who said 47 other counties used the same software that experienced this “glitch.” Cox revealed the stunning error that occurred in Michigan’s Antrim County, which saw thousands of ballots going to Democrats instead of Republicans. “If all this wasn’t enough, in Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans, causing a 6,000 vote swing against our candidates,” she said during a Friday press conference alongside Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. Local election officials “identified” and “reviewed” the issue on Wednesday. “The county clerk came forward and said tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes. Since then, we have now discovered that 47 counties used this same software in the same capacity,” she continued. As a...

    President Trump faced off against Kamala Harris in Arizona Wednesday, delivering an appeal to Hispanic voters and his conservative base while confronting headwinds that could make him the first Republican presidential candidate for decades to lose the state. Addressing supporters in Bullhead City, the president panned the media, touted an increase in support among Hispanic voters, and promised the crowd that if reelected, "normal life will fully resume." The county, where Republicans dominate local elected offices, voted 73% for Trump in 2016. Trump made a second stop at Phoenix's Goodyear Airport in Maricopa County. At about the same time, Democratic Party vice presidential nominee Harris was in Tucson, a liberal stronghold where the senator met Latina business owners before hosting about 100 cars for a COVID-19-conscious drive-through rally. Like Trump, she headed later to the sprawling Maricopa County, home to Arizona's largest cities and an electoral prize that could...

Samaniego said El Paso is now 'at a crisis stage', with all of its hospitals and intensive care units now full as the region grapples with a troubling surge in COVID-19 cases.    The fine for breaking the curfew is $500 and anyone caught not wearing a face mask will face a $250 penalty.   The city of El Paso in Texas is asking residents to stay home for the next two weeks and the wider El Paso County closed all its parks and recreational facilities for 14 days.  Nurses gather information from patients lining up in their cars for Covid-19...
    SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — Orange County reported another 316 COVID-19 cases on Saturday, raising the total case count to 58,326 diagnoses since the pandemic began. An additional four virus-related fatalities were also reported, bringing the death toll to 1,444. The county continues to report a relatively high number of daily cases. Officials have been aiming for a daily average of about 130 new cases per day, but this week the county reported between 200 to 300 new cases each day. The rising daily case count jeopardizes the county’s chance to move to the less-restrictive orange tier of the state’s COVID-19 reopening roadmap. Orange County officials expect to remain in the red tier next week, OC CEO Frank Kim said. Rising case rates throughout the nation and forecasts of heightened infections during the winter have public health officials concerned, he said. “Everyone has the same concerns — we’re looking at the...

    The Deets is a weekday morning dose of commentary — delivered at 7 a.m. — from sports columnist Dieter Kurtenbach that wraps up everything important in the world of sports and looks forward to another crazy day ahead. There was an hour of gleeful bliss yesterday. The State of California announced on Tuesday that fans would be allowed to return to stadiums this season, with the 49ers, by virtue of Santa Clara County’s COVID-19 tier, allowed to fill Levi’s Stadium’s stands to 20 percent capacity. Seeing as it wasn’t long ago that there was a cottage industry of taking photos of the sparse crowds at the Santa Clara Sunbed, 20 percent capacity seemed like business as usual. We were back, baby! But not so fast. Santa Clara County came in and put the kibosh on the state and the Niners’ plans with a...

    SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY (CBS13) — With only 15 days until the election, a San Joaquin County supervisor is raising concerns over the integrity of the local voting process. Supervisor Tom Pattis is calling for an emergency meeting and a full investigation into the voting process. This comes after several issues on this year’s mail-in ballots in the county. More than 2,000 voters were sent replacement ballots because a local race was missing. New ballots were sent out to all of the impacted voters, and the county registrar said the new ballot has the words “corrected ballot inside” written on the envelope. In another instance, more than 5,000 sample ballots and voter guides sent to voters in Manteca and the 5th Suerpvisorial District were printed in the wrong language. In a statement, Patti said, “I believe there’s a legal vulnerability on behalf of the county. It may even require bringing in...

    Co-workers say Shyla Pennington, a longtime Florida teacher’s aide, was a natural with her students—patient, kind, and committed to each child as if they were her own. Pennington, who worked for almost 20 years in the Volusia County School District, lived with her brother, Gerald Jones, a paramedic whom community members described as “selfless” and “devoted” to protecting other people. This weekend, both died of COVID-19. The progression of the disease—slow, then devastatingly fast—played out on the Facebook page of their father, Greg Jones. “Our daughter Shyla Pennington is now with God, she lost her battle with COVID-19,” Jones wrote on Saturday. Then, the next day: “Our son Gerald is still fighting this mess so please keep him in your prayers.” Less than 12 hours later, he wrote: “2 days after we lost our daughter we just got a call saying we lost our son to [COVID-19]. Rest in...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A photojournalist is speaking out after capturing a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy threatening him on video. (credit: CBS) Nash Baker says he was recording a protest last Saturday outside the St. Francis Hospital emergency room, where two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies had been taken after being shot in an ambush attack. An unidentified deputy yelled and approached Baker threateningly to try to get him to leave. “Get out of here,” the deputy said, before yelling expletives at Baker.

Video shows she was surrounded by several deputies, taken to the ground and held down as she yelled she was a journalist with KPCC. “When we cover press we do it for the law enforcement, for the community,” Baker said.

    SANTA CLARA COUNTY (KPIX 5) – A group of business owners and at least a half dozen chambers of commerce across Santa Clara County are coming together to urge county leaders to relax COVID-19 restrictions or put the economy further at risk. The group is asking county supervisors and Dr. Sara Cody, the county’s health officer, to follow the state’s “red tier” guidelines in reopening the economy. Santa Clara County entered the red tier last week, but announced it would continue following more restrictive guidelines. “Did they forget about us,” said esthetician Maya Mansour, who owns The Original Facial Bar in Willow Glen.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — Under the new color-coded, four-tiered plan, Bay Area businesses in some areas are reopening unevenly based on county lines that don’t line up with the State of California. A stark example of that is found in the 6000 block of Mission Street, on the San Francisco/San Mateo County line. On the San Mateo County side, you can get your hair done indoors. On the other side of the line is the city and county of San Francisco, the only county in the Bay Area where you cannot get your hair done indoors. On Thursday, KPIX5 observed barbers on the San Mateo County side of the line, hard at work cutting hair indoors. But on the San Francisco side, the shops were closed. “It’s ridiculous. So if I hop on this side … ‘oh my God, it’s illegal, I’m going to get my license revoked,’” said...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – For each resident who tests positive for COVID-19, a county’s number of confirmed cases should go up by one. Some counties, though, have found mistakes in the data they’re receiving from labs through the Texas Health Trace system. “We have to go through, research and double check each line,” said Samantha Pickett, Ellis County’s Emergency Management Coordinator. Ellis County on Friday reported it’s had a total of 2,390 residents test positive. The state reports Ellis County has had 2,452, a difference of several dozen “We receive age, gender, addresses,” said Pickett. Sometimes those addresses, she’s discovered, fall outside county lines. Other times, she says, a case will show up more than once. “You’ll see the same address, same person, same gender, we’ll just count one and remove the duplicate,” said Pickett.

    IRVINE, Calif. (KABC) -- As Orange County deals with a surge in coronavirus cases that has given it the second-highest total among California's counties, experts are looking at where the caseloads are highest - and why.Experts say COVID-19 first came to Orange County through the wealthier coastal communities, like Newport Beach, Laguna Beach and Corona del Mar.But now cases are highly concentrated in low-income Latino communities in cities like Santa Ana and Anaheim.Dr. Daniel Parker, an epidemiologist at the University of California Irvine specializes in mapping out infectious diseases."This started in affluent communities on the coastal area," Parker said.

    SAN JOSE (KPIX 5) — It’s the beginning of a new era for hair and nail salons, spas and gyms in Santa Clara County. Changes to the county’s health order will allow them to reopen, but with restrictions. “I’m very happy, very excited, but a little nervous at the same time,” said Lieu Schultz, co-owner of the Tranquility Day Spa in San Jose’s East Foothills neighborhood. Schultz owns the business with her husband David and they have 20 employees who do hair, nails, and massage. But to comply with health orders on spacing, they have to cut the number of workers and clients they can have inside their spa at one time. “If there’s only four customers in here and four customers in there, that’s a lot less than we expected,” she said. “We’ll still have the same amount of utility bills, same amount of rent,” said David Schultz. “So...
