6:03 pm
called that does big or prayer bees hanging from the rear view that their mirrors and i've actually had friends multiple friends who have been stopped for this reason and this reason alone. this will be a tangible. will have tangible impacts on the racial disparities that we continue to see jesus. yanez is a member of the police commission and says the proposed policy is a step in the right. kitchen embarking on these pretext stops looking for the low hanging fruit does not correlate with reducing criminal activity, but in a statement the san francisco police officers association says in part, the reality is routine traffic stops can lead to moving illegal guns off of our streets and given the level of gun violence our city is experiencing these traffic stops are literally saving live. police are offering a $10,000

6:05 pm
she is spending more. this is the third time i had to pay almost a hundred bucks. california has the highest average prices in the country acco country according to triple-a and the bay area is feeling the worst of it multiple stations have minimum prices starting over $6 a gallon including from companies based in california. the oil refiners don't want us to know how much they're making because if we knew we take it back as an excessive profit stacks consumer watchdog president. jamie court says he wants the state to pass legislation regulating state gas prices the california oil refinery cost disclosure act would make it so state refineries have to report how much it costs to refine oil and how much they make from selling it. he already thinks some companies are making a full dollar more a gallon. no oil refiner should be making a dollar a gallon or even more than 50 cents a gallon. and if they do we should get it back in taxes. he says if the bill passes it would help californians who are struggling to afford gas right now. this is killing our economy.
6:06 pm
there is a public interest in curbing this type of profiteering especially for people like register who already are on a tight budget. she says now the gas prices sometimes limit her from using her car. it's hard to find, you know, it hurts my pocket because i'm on a fixed income in the east bay ryan curry abc 7 news. new poll released by our media partners at the san francisco standard shows district attorney tracey boudin will have an uphill fight to keep his job the poll surveyed 1,000 registered voters in san francisco. 57% say they plan to vote yes on the recall while 22% plan to vote. no, however a sizable 21%able 2y they still undecided today boudin sat down for a one-on-one interview with abc 7 new of liz. she joins us live with more liz. hi, i'm a yes, we had a wide-ranging conversation with the day today, and we asked him about those bruising poll numbers. he told us he doesn't trust polls and that he definitely doesn't trust this one. in fact, he told us he's
6:07 pm
confident that he will beat this recall. so let's start by talking about the recall. we're less than a month away now voters are already going to the polls for early voting. what's your message to the san francisco voters maybe haven't made up their mind yet and they want to hear from you about what you planu plan to do to make san francisco safer everything. i do my priority and my entire office is focused on making san francisco as safe as possible. we need people to be safe and to feel safe in their homes in their neighborhoods and everywhere in san francisco, and if you you look at the folks w'e been really paying attention to the work i've been doing office has been doing going after fencing operations selling stolen goods from auto burglaries prosecuting drug sales going after manufacturers of illegal ghost guns. promoting and expanding victim services the folks who are paying attention are saying loudly and clearly vote no on proposition. so let's talk about this overall feeling in san francisco that the not safe that there's a rising crime specifically. dirty crime that you can't go to
6:08 pm
park your car outside of a restaurant without the glass being smashed in that you can't go to a cvs or a walgreens without seeing somebody walk out bags of stolen goods. you agree that something has changed in the city in the past few years. absolutely. no question. we're living through a global pandemic everything has changed people are wearing face masks tourism dried up entirely businesses went under people lost their jobs. lots of folks decided to move out of a city, of course something has changed what's dishonest about the recall and the millions of dollars in lives and attacks that they're spreading. that they're suggesting that all the changes in the last two years are because of my election, but there is a feeling that your office is not holding people accountable. well sure. i mean there's lots of stories you hear every day, but if you look at the facts and i know as a journalist, you're working with facts, you'll see that my charging rate is actually higher than my predecessor or than other bay area district attorneys when it comes to pretty much every category of crime domestic violence drug
6:09 pm
sales property crime, you'll also see that i'm taking the lead in my office is taking the lead. on innovative solutions to those problems. i want to talk about one of the hallmarks of your policy platforms and that is diversion program. so instead of sending someone to jail or prison you send them to a mental health or substance abuse treatment program. how can you assure voters that the people who are being granted diversion are not just going back out onto the streets and reoffending. well, there's three really important points about diversion. the first one is it's not just my policies. it's state law. there's been a dramatic expansion in diversion programs because of the state legislature in the last several years the second thing that's really important to remember is that in every case that's sent to diversion. it's a judge not me or my office that makes the final decision and the third critical point is if people don't successfully complete aversion if they mess up if they get arrested again if they don't comply with the terms and conditions, our criminal case is still pending. we don't lose the ability to prosecute people in secure convictions one of the
6:10 pm
prosecutors that's been speaking out in favor of the recall. she's been on the tele. nas that we've all been seeing so that you created a culture where prosecutors feel pressured to give leniently deals yeah, it's just a lie. i mean the reality is that there's a lot of folks in the recall who have a tremendous amount of ambition and they won't let facts get in the way of their ambition. what do you mean by ambition? because some might argue that coming out and speaking out against your former boss could be detrimental to your career. well, they've got millions of republican dollars putting their face all over tv and they trying to get their names in the to be appointed district attorney if the recall succeeds which it's not going to do one person who has not publicly taken a position on this recall. is mayor london breed in a new york times interview you responded to that and this is what you said of her. you said quote. it is convenient for someone with access to those resources in power like she has in san francisco to have a foil when people are upset. what did you mean by that? i wasn't talking about mayor london breed. i was talking about the
6:11 pm
structure of the way san francisco government works and the reality that any may has an incentive to want to get appointments, but you did say here when you have that much power if people are upset. it's convenient to have a place to shift the blame. so not a referencing their breed at all. it wasn't response and in conversation about mayor breed and so are you saying that she's using you as a foil or a scapegoat. i'm not going to have you put words in my mouth. i'm being very there it is a structural issue in francisco the mayor oversees a 13 billion dollar budget overseas numerous departments including the department of public health and the police department and any elected official in any part of this country san francisco and beyond is of course happy to have somewhere else to take the blame when things are not going well. so overall big picture do you feel like you as the district attorney are responsible at all for this feeling of the city not being safe. i'm responsible for fighting as hard as i can every single day to make the city safer and i'm
6:12 pm
proud of the work we've done and i know how much work we have ahead and i know that the recall will make us less safe. it will undermine the work my office is doing it will destabilize the district attorney's office. it will make the work we've done on projects like operation autopilot that just yesterday resulted in a massive bust of the auto burglary fencing operation unable to continue. it will detract and undermine and destabilize law enforcement at a moment when our city desperately needs strength and purpose and vision. that's what i'm trying to bring every single day. and again, that was just a portion of our interview with boudin. we hope to post the full interview on our website shortly. we also pressed him on the success of diversion programs his relationship with the san francisco police department and reports that over 50 prosecutors have left his office since he took office. he would not confirm that but he did say much of the turnover is part of the great resignation and just being a natural amount of turnover that happens at a da office. and let's we're just four weeks
6:13 pm
away from the recall. what was your overall impression of the district attorney? does he seem concerned? yeah, i mean, you know spoken like a good politician. he told us he's not concerned that he does believe he's going to beat this but there's no way looking at these poll numbers that he can't be uneasy right now the mere fact that we're seeing him out here so publicly making the rounds doing interviews with us and with others. indicates he certainly knows that he needs to fight for his job mama. all right, liz. thank you so much. coming up here 7 on your signs. michael. finney is live with the eviction fears that are growing closer by the day for california renters. the day for california renters. we'll be back did you know that renovating your kitchen and bathroom is one of the best ways to increase the value of your home? i'm mike holmes here with ivan from agm renovations
