and two of our officers shotsho were fired during the course of that interaction, and as a result, we have suspect who was killed and we have two of ourf o officers who were significantly injured but thankfully they're going to be okay. >> which is the beste ok news.. chief one quick question heresth we'll get on to your future here hopefully the confirmed -- soons to be confirmed police chief ine the city. hough,th thoseugh, those officers taken to the hospitalan in police cruisers. c what was the thinking behindgeh that? >> you know, our officers may have to make a judgment call on that.th it is not the best practice to transport a shooting victim to o the hospital by way of scout cac but in the heat of the moment an officer made that decision.eciso it's tough to criticize aritize judgment call like that.e t you know, we'll take a close clo look at it. in hindsight fit could have beet better we'll try and make sure it doesn't hll tappen in the fur but that's a very very tougho llll. when one of your colleagues has
8:10 am
been shot, they're facing a f potentially life threateningeatg injury and your first instinct t as a police officer really toeal try and get them help and sop ad that's what they did. >> the mayor has said that crimi is down in the district but thii morning we have the displeasured of reporting on nine shootings n in the district win 24 hours. h what are your feelings on thissi and how moving forward can werdw get these numbers down? >> , i'm glad you mentioned this last year we had the lowestow number of violent crimes in ourr city since we had -- since 2009. we did have some shootings lasts night.nit. fortunately none of those were fatal. other than the police shootingsi that we had.e h you know our officers were out there.er whenever -- you know, you're familiar with this. whenever thefami temperature stt to rise in our city sometimeses there's additional conflictsnf that we have to deal with and unfortunately some of thoseely resulted in shootings but one oe things we're

my leadership here at mpd we're' going stop this violence. violec we're not going to tolerate it. we are not going to tolerate folks who think they can resorts to the use of a firearm in our ty.y. it's unsafe. it scares me unnecessarily.sari that's exactly what our officerr were out there doing last nightn in the trinidad neighborhood.eih they are going out there with the sole intent of getting get illegal firearms off our streetr and we're going to continue toe do that as a police departmenten until we get all of them. >> chief, was do you need movinm forward? we've heard talk thert needs to be more police officerc on the street.trt. whatever. what do you need? >> you know you know thatu kn ta discussion over the number of police officers that we need onn the police department is oneent that we're involved in right now with the council.. i have asked the folks on the ot council who i have personallyery spoken to to be very thoughtfult abouth
8:12 am
department and exactly how manym police officers we need.e need. you have to look at the effectiveness of your policeol department and some of the somee measures that you look to as yoy look is whether or not they'reh' having an impact on violent viot crime. if we use last year as an example, we certainly did have an impact on violent crime. you see if your policee department is responsive go toet lot of community meetings around the city by and large i'm hearing positive comments about the way our officers are empathetic and responsive to tho needs of the community you mayty want to look at response timesps and how quickly our officers get to the scene when an emergencyry happens. i can tell you we had multiple i officers on the scene of thatfha incident that we had last nightg and i say all of that to say when you're evaluating yourou police department those are the measures you want to look at t t from there, you may want to determine how many policeine hol officers you need and you needoe to keep in mind when you'ree looking at crime and that's really what the city is lookin
8:13 am
to do is to reduce crime isrime there's a lot of things that gog into crime and just adding a couple of police officers to tho police department is nots necessarily going to be thear answer to all of youril py roblm so i think people have to be very thoughtful when they're having those discussions and hopefully the folks that aref going to make these decisionsses will listen to my input when we have those discussions.cussions. >> chief, we'll have to let you go. so many more things we want toro talk about with you.ta it seems like all of the piecese are in mace right now. now you're long-time member of theef department. you have the support of thef th police union. you have the support of theve ts mayor obviously. as we let you go right now, lete hi ask you this. i know you're looking for more r help as far as communityom policing right now to try to t bring crime down. d but also the question out theree coming from the white house nowe the question is, will local police be de facto ice agents now as gel how are you going tog work all this into running thist department now that you're the'e man in charge?e? >> with that last question i can

the year last year.ear. there were better performancesre in moonlight. moonlig i think the actress who play shy ron were supporting in my m opinion. in i will say, though, had lucas l hedges in manchester by the seas is to me one supporting actorgct is. he's incredible.redibl he's there the entire time. ali is barely in moonlight.ooig so i would love to see moonlighg win because i want moonlight tot take home an oscar but i think lucas hedges deserves it.sees >> an interesting question for supporting role.ng rol how long do you actually have to be in au film. >> i remember the timing on thii an actress in american gangstern in like for five minutes or mins something like that and she wasa nominated.mi it was like i think if you y appear on screen for one secondd you're in the movie.you' >> right.ht >> and interesting one of the cool things about the silence of the lambs by the way is that anthony hopkins --opns -- >> the actual screen time. actua >> only in it for 16 minutes.mie he wouldn't leading actor. aor >> hard to believe when you think about the whole movie.ov >> how long movies are. are best supporting actress this iss

8:51 am
>> doesn't that make sensehat ma because the sag award is voted by peers.ee. >> act. >> oscars voted by peers.yee >> right. rig golden globes voted by the glo press. >> right.he here's the thing. it could go either he.y >> when you think if your peerse voted you in one award, it woulu make sense they would vote youle again. >> i agree.>> changes all the time.change i've seen it happen before.efor i think denzel in my opiniony op gave the best performance ofrman last year.r nobody embodied a character likl that. the energy, the way he did it,ii the way he spoke, everything di he on screen.hen sc he's s denzel. >> he's direct directed it andnd did it it on stage amazing filmg and i think that he will takeak home the oscar it will be his third. >> glory, training day and now this.trai now >> now this which is amazing.th. casey affleck hasn't wouldn'tn'o yet. ye so there's a theory because hese hasn't wouldn't will the academa then give it to him? because bc you think about people who winew awards over the years and how ah they choose them.them sometimes they give it to somebody because it's theirt's e time. i can argue that denzel deservev it for malcolm x before
8:52 am
day even though i loved traininn day he won it for training dayiy not malcolm x.. scorcese didn't win about the deported, what about go fellas, taxi drive.fellas, ta mean streets amazing.ximazing. >> best actress honestly emmamma stone.on she killed it amazing iamazi performance.mance again, i am probably going to bb wrong about this. t i think that this going into i this year natalie portman for fr jackie was the frontrunner. isabel won for el at the goldenl close. emma stonecl won at the sag awas this is a role that she was bors to play.lay. it's her life basically shely s moved to la when she was 15 with her mom from phoenix.enix. she's an mazing star in thisr i film.film she sings well she dances well.. and it really is an emotionalal character. i love this film so much. m and i think she's going to winin but don't be surprised if youf u see another actress on stage. sa because natalie portman can takn it you never know.it you nev k that's the hardest category toyt predict this year in my opinionn best picture now where it comesm to. to allison and i have a bet.et
8:53 am
>> okay. >> la la land is i guess the easy choice considering it'st's nominated for 14 academy awardsa it's a big deal because it's actually tied with titanic andnd all about eve.ve as the most nominated film inn oscar history. now, that gives it a certain momentum, and that's why emma e might make it tore actress, butt allison and i have bet i will i say this.hi i'll give allison credit here.dh >> thank you. >> when it comes down to the front runners for best pictureic you have moonlight, you have hidden figures and you have laea la land. now, hidden figures took homee the sag.e now they took omaha the ensemblm la la land was not nominated for ensemble because it's to two leading characters. hidden figures in my opinion a a more important film than la will land. even though i like la la land ln better. i think hidden figures is aiddeu movie that could have ancoul han opportunity to win.opport >> you have the mysteriousavthey hidden fences. >> yes.>> y. yeah, yeah. that's the tenth nominee. >> i know this doesn't go intoot any consideration when it comes to the voting i will sayeratio s
