6:30 pm
following developing news tonight. a federal judge is expected to decide on whether the oakland police department's 20 plus year federal oversight will
6:31 pm
continue or end. the department was placed under federal oversight starting in 2003 pending compliance with 52 specific reforms. >> that were negotiated in a settlement agreement, including concerning racial profiling and reporting practices about the use of force. a federal judge is deciding whether or not the oakland police department is in compliance with all of those tasks that were negotiated speaking just about a half-hour ago come police chief leronne armstrong called today's decision a milestone. well, the idea that this police department past put itself in a place where we can have conversations about sustainability and potentially demonstrating to the public that we serve, that this is the most progressive police department in the country. we await the judge's orders, but i'm optimistic that we are proven to the public that we have reformed. civil rights attorney john burris help to lead the process of this federal oversight. and he joins us now live with more on
6:32 pm
what we can expect from the judge. john, thank you for joining us. of course, you've been involved with this. >> from the beginning and we're understanding that you are among those who are now saying maybe it is time for this federal oversight to be in winding down. just characterize how you feel about things right now. >> well, i'm i i think that you well, we have reached a milestone in a long, winding road to get to this point. many stops and starts. so i think now that with the exception of one task, the department is in compliance, that doesn't then mean outside of having oversight. that oversight will last during the cold sustainability period which last for one year. the court did not start that today. the court still maintain that this taft partially compliant with. i agree that. that portion was in compliance. but we also believe that because there were 50 others didn't deaths that were in compliance. i was
6:33 pm
ok to start the compliance period. the court didn't say that the court they will wait. he issue an order and i'm certain that he will indicated one-year period will start and that the and one other tasks have to get in the judge basically says is that we're going to maintain the oversight with the monitor coming in. would not be as reason it has been. but every 4 months on every 3 months he wants to report. and when the court has been have to come back to the court and see sustainability is blasting very, very important. want to be sure that whatever we've done in the past age done and that the racial profiling issues not resurface, nor the binding on the brutality that represent open befo%e is done and equally important is the consistency of discipline within department. it's very important. might not think that care about this. but
6:34 pm
good. what i care about what i want to make sure that black options were carry within the department and where that had to be done with the consistency of discipline. that is a task that is not completed yet. but is one that i think will get done within the next 6 months is part of the sustainability period. so on balance, a lot of progress have been a real pleased about the progress that is not over. and i'm cautiously optimistic that the party will sustain itself you're in sustainability. pierre, john, talk about the. >> police department today versus how it was back in the late 90's and early 2, thousands when we have the right or case and so on. for those of up for those people who worked here at the time or maybe don't remember because it was a while ago, 20 plus years ago. how has the deparoment changed? >> yeah. when i started this jim shannon back in 2000, it was really the culmination of conduct that have been occurring when previous 10 news. and so we've seen a lot during that period. a lot of
6:35 pm
beatings when the drugs, perjury, name of assault, all kinds of very negative activities. but much of that does not occur. now and started. i said that we've had other on the other scandals that have taken place. just been namely church cases of assault and lady. we're kind of cases that we've had to deal with a long way. but we do not have the and we used to have. we don't have as many people being stopped. they used to being without probable cause, concerted effort to stop the not have that's not done yet because to me, that's one of the most important part of citizenship is not to be stopped just and search. you have your body search and taken into custody for a crime he did not commit or to engage in conduct that placed them initiate. i don't like it out of 2. those were cleared issue
6:36 pm
that took place. then it's not likely they will take place now. but just because of the checks and balances and people asking questions about what do you stop that person? why did you do 1, a push to get it when it going to solve that and now they are. we have to maintain the records, the cover those kind of things. so it's a completely different apartment or not says none of the options were around. you know, years ago here now for this department has changed over in terms professionalism in terms leadership and all that important present chief himself a relatively normal officer when i started this case. now he is the chief. you've been raised and trained on the innocent. and that's what's important on many off. no, nothing. i was before don't know they're being trained on now. so that's very, very important. so i think the future can be bright. but i think given the fact that, you know, leadership changes in the prom. you have to make sure the new leadership is also committed to the changes that
6:37 pm
have been made real quick. i want to ask you one question because we are out of you did express confidence in the current chief leronne. >> armstrong, is an oakland native and certainly is very concerned about these issues, the interim period that you're talking about, you know, clinton spent upwards of 30 million dollars on the federal appointed monitor. will warshaw continue to be that monitor or just the court now take over that responsibility. >> one, the court has always been involved, but the actual monitoring been done by the monitor were shot and that will continue. it's just a reduced investment of time. but before he did so my weekly monthly that would not to place would only be every 3 or 4 months and is on for certain tasks. challenging task, of course. but but the breath of the work has been reduced. and so i'm certain of police department is happy about that. but it still will on court. basically cent. i want
6:38 pm
this these task to stay in compliance. if you don't stand compliant, we will not get off of of the by him or by the in the month. all is not free ride. and you know, not what this means. you got different task front of you and you have before john burris. >> active in this whole process from the beginning. thank you so much for your time this evening. thank you. >> all right. we're going to take another trip to chase center. the worriers looking to close out their series against the nuggets and move on in the nba playoffs. a live report from jason dumas coming up.

series, they have been a really potent lineup. that means come on. looney has been relegated. >> to the bench, not the first time he's been relegated to the bench and i wouldn't call it a demotion is just as other lineup has been playing so well in stephens, no longer on a minutes restriction. so it just makes sense. step re enters the starting lineup as the warriors look to eliminate the denver nuggets in advance to the second round. now, you would think in an elimination game it would kind of be a must win. there could be some sense of urgency and there has been a sense of urgency with the players. but steve kerr was asked, is this a must-win it steve kerr gave an answer that. hey, it surprise me. >> most when is when you're facing elimination. so that's hence the so players, you know, players are are going to. have their own sense of urgency. obviously everybody
