The Amazon rainforests are burning, a cataclysmic event brought about by human greed, and a failure on the part of humans to act as the stewards to our home. Brazil’s revved-up deforestation policy under President Jair Bolsonaro has led to images of smoke and fire stretching out from the rainforests. The city of San Pablo is covered in smoke. However, these most recent fires are not particularly new to this regime. The New York Times reported that satellite imagery identified 39,194 fires, which marks “a 77 percent increase from the same period in 2018.” The rainforest’s deforestation can be seen from space, and has led to imagery like this. xÃ°ÂÂÂJust a little alert to the world: the sky randomly turned dark today in SÃÂ£o Paulo, and meteorologists believe itÃ¢ÂÂs smoke from the fires burning *thousands* of kilometers away, in RondÃÂ´nia or Paraguay. Imagine how much has to be burning to create that much smoke(!). SOSÃ°ÂÂÂ pic.twitter.com/P1DrCzQO6xÃ¢ÂÂ Shannon Sims (@shannongsims) August 20, 2019

It’s another Saturday, so for those who tune in, welcome to a diary discussing the Nuts & Bolts of a Democratic Campaign. If you’ve missed out, you can catch up anytime: Just visit our group or follow Nuts & Bolts Guide. A few times a year this entry switches to cover the Democratic Party itself, and this week I am in San Francisco, where the Democratic National Committee is holding the summer meeting, which will discuss issues facing the party as well as provide members a chance to talk to one another about how to better organize our states, shape the primaries and caucus for 2020, and how do we beat Trump. Beyond Trump, though, the party meets to discuss how we build a better party for the future. This week I’m going to just point out some of the major items being discussed, and take all questions in comments about what comes next for Democratic efforts 2020!
Apparently, someone at the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement binge-watches “Orange is the New Black.” In an episode from the show’s final season, released in its entirety on July 26, fictional imprisoned characters use a toll-free number to contact Freedom for Immigrants. Freedom for Immigrants is a very real and essential resource for the thousands of immigrants being detained across the nation who are guaranteed few rights, as the characters soon discover. (MILD SPOILERS AHEAD) Unlike in prison, detainees do not have a right to a lawyer for their immigration hearing. They can't make a phone call until money has been added to their account, but no one knows where they are and the machine is broken anyway. Maritza can't even send a letter because she has no money for a stamp. Blanca tells Maritza that it's worse than prison; the ICE agents worse than the guards. Other characters in the show come to the rescue as best as they can: They discreetly share the number for Freedom for Immigrants, with a scripted warning that ended up eerily accurate. “You have to be careful, though. Apparently if they figure out that you’re using the hotline, Big Brother shuts it down.” Sure enough, on Aug. 7, less than two weeks of the entire “OITNB” farewell season dropping on the streaming service, ICE had blocked all access to the FFI hotline.
Without a doubt, police violence is a pervasive issue across the entire nation. While police brutality can impact anyone, it’s especially harmful in communities of color (especially black men), sex workers, and Indigenous populations. Critiques of social media notwithstanding, the ability to share videos and live streams of interactions with police have helped more people understand just how dangerous interactions with the police can be, especially if you’re not white. Now, a big change is happening in the Phoenix Police Department. Officers are now required to record every single time they point their weapons at people, as reported by CNN. The language here is important. It’s not just shooting the gun, it’s aiming it at a person. Mayor Kate Gallego gave a press conference on Monday where she explained that the new rule came from recommendations released by the National Police Foundation. Police Chief Jeri Williams called the measure “an important step in our relationship building. Our updated record management system now allows us to track these incidents and will allow us to have a real idea of how many times our officers are able to successfully de-escalate an incident and a situation with the potential of deadly force,” she continued. Mayor Gallego also noted that all officers will now have to participate in eight hours of mental health training in addition to wearing body cameras on duty. When speaking on the body cameras, Gallego said this addition “will allow us to show situations that have been de-escalated and better understand what is happening in our community.” Now, it’s important to go into some background context for what’s happened in Phoenix that has led to this point. As we covered here at Daily Kos in June, a video went absolutely viral after the Phoenix police pulled a gun on a black family over accusations that a four-year-old child had stolen a doll from a local discount store. While no one was physically harmed, the situation was obviously traumatic, and the family wanted the officers involved to be fired. In the video footage, an officer (who is not seen on camera) can be heard yelling, “I’m going to f--king put a cap in your fucking head,” and “You’re going to f--king get shot.” Another officer pulls a gun on the pregnant mother, still in the car, and tells her to put her hands up, which she explains she can’t do because she’s holding her one-year-old.
