Deep Dive Bay Area: Broken Systems

Deep Dive Bay Area
Friday, December 13th
This edition of the Deep Dive Bay Area podcast, "Broken Systems", is inspired by the recent trial and conviction of a homeless man named Michael Watkins.  He’s a habitual street offender. In fact, just days after his release from Santa Rita Jail, he was arrested on the same indecent exposure and lewd conduct charges for which he’d just done time.   And there are more Michael Watkins out there—we see them every day. A team of KCBS Radio reporters used the Michael Watkins case to launch a broader look at the systems that appear to be failing Michael Watkins as well as the rest of us.
