1:35 am
multiple victim enhancements, these are tools for prosecutors to keep bad people locked away in the community out of harm's way. griff: do you believe what gascon is doing will make the streets of los angeles more violence and less safe? >> i absolutely do agree with that. it will create a situation where gangs believe they can take over the streets. those enhancements are the only thing that keep them in prison long enough to be cleaned up. this is what we are pushing for, we have to get these gangs off the street, some of them could be reached and it does not happen every ability nation to make that happen so what he is
1:36 am
pushing now is a lot of resources investing in rehabilitating them, especially in a juvenile setting, raising an opportunity, those are released onto the street in the case where he is still posting gang-related videos, they make their actions, if they want to rehabilitate. if they don't need need to be put away. >> in just a few seconds we have left what would you say to talk directly to him? >> he needs to bring people to the table and talk to the other side. is pushing these aggressive reforms and this is not what is
1:37 am
best, he has the support of the public but when you are sorting out victims of crime you are leaving talent open, he is on their side and is pushing these reforms to enhance gang activity so this is happening when the communities really need the support of the office and gang units. >> keep us posted, thank you for taking time. carley: some headlines here, george floyd's girlfriend testified their chauvin's murder trial telling jurors about their relationship and struggles with opioid addiction. >> suffers from chronic pain. we try really hard to break that

1:45 am
what they are feeling, trying to do here in this case, getting some national attention because of this sort of david and goliath battle they are having with the powerful teachers union. carley: one of the things this lawsuit says is the teachers union made a bunch of demands that have nothing to do with covid 19. some of those demands defund police, housing security, require businesses to expand paid sick leave, restrict publicly funded charter schools going after the charter schools during covid 19 and financial support for undocumented students. nowhere on that list anything to do with ventilation and spacing at all the things you would think they would be singularly focused on so parents are saying kids are being held hostage by the teachers union's political

demands. >> reporter: held hostage because they are in such isolation. toddlers have their parents, schooling kids for so long in isolation, the effects of that and talking over the past several months talking to these groups of parents watching their kids. here is what you heard. >> the blame goes to governor newsom for empowering teachers unions, the blame goes to governor newsom for not providing true directions according to what he promised to reopen schools safely. >> i this was not going to work. >> heartbreaking my kindergartner is in front of the screen.
1:47 am
carley: this is a personal injury lawsuit, four parents brought this lawsuit forward, it is coming at an interesting time because schools in la are going to reopen in mid april but there is a big catch because elementary students are only going to be on campus for three hours a day so by the time you get there they have to pack up and go home and older kids will be on campus for just half of the week and when they are they will be online learning so they will be sitting in front of their screens. >> and still suffering. he had to work with one of his students, she was doing this
1:48 am

the despair gripping the nation. we were going into lockdown mode, churches were going to be closed for the first time in history and we wondered where we ever going to emerge from this and what a difference a year makes, today there is hope abounding everywhere as we emerge from this pandemic and in my op-ed i note that is a perfect picture of the contrast that first easter weekend. on good friday it seems like anything but good to the disciples, jesus had been crucified, their dreams and disappeared but three days later the hope and truth of the resurrection eclipsed the darkness of this world and it continues to do so 2000 years later. shannon: such a hopeful message but for those who are watching who still feel lonely or lost, lost a loved one, lost a job, what do you say? >> the bible never the lies the

reality of suffering in this world but at the word temporary. many members of the church lost loved ones, some say goodbye to a loved one utilizing face time and am i going to see my loved one again? the question is answered by a resounding yes. the fact that jesus not only paid for our sins on that good friday but conquered death on easter sunday, jesus said it this way. i am the resurrection and the life. he who believes in me though he dies yet shall he live again. that is the ultimate hope we have this easter weekend. carley: i'm sure you will have a beautiful easter service. church membership, religious membership has dropped to record
1:55 am
lows, it is below 50% for the first time. why do you think that is? >> what has happened is our nation has gotten more secular. what we are losing our cultural christians. it used to be 70 years ago people thought to be a good person you had to go to church and they did so whether they believed it or not they went through the motions. more and more people go to church, are the true believers. i'm not discouraged by this at all. carley: thank you for waking up early and joining us. happy easter. griff: in the next hour of "fox and friends first" shameless smugglers dropping two toddlers over a 14 foot barrier. gloria chavez released the video for is going on at the border, she will join us live with an update coming up.
