Chris Merrill: Sacramento Task Force Arrest Child Sexual Predator
1293
Guests Sgt. Rod Grassmann, Spokesperson, Sacramento County Sheriff’s office and Sgt. Juan Hidalgo, Commander of the Sacramento Valley Internet Crimes Against Children Task talk about the big arrest and offer tools and tips to help keep your kids safe.  Man accused of grooming more than 100 children online across world, Sacramento sheriff sayst  A 24-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after a months long investigation revealed he had been posing as a young girl to speak with other dozens of children on the internet to get them to produce child sexual abuse material, Sacramento County officials said. Demetrius Carl Davis was booked into the Sacramento County Jail on charges relating to lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14, jail records show. The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office in a video release said more than 80 victims were identified across the United States and there may be several more internationally. Davis is believed to have used the moniker "Lizzy" to lure children and groom them, the sheriff's office said. "After establishing a relationship with the child, Davis would direct them to produce child pornography, depicting themselves engaging in sexual acts with their siblings and other children known to them," Sacramento County Sheriff's spokesperson Rodney Grassmann said in the video release. The sheriff's office said its Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force began investigating after receiving a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about an online account suspected of uploading child sexual abuse material online. Investigators searched Davis' home in Sacramento County on Dec. 1, 2021, the sheriff's office said. There, several screen recordings were found on Davis' digital devices showing children "engaged in sexual acts." This included his phones and numerous social media accounts he used to communicate with children. The sheriff's office said it has identified more than 80 children, their ages typically ranging from 6 to 13 years old, across the country as victims. And with the estimated 15 other children Davis is believed to have communicated with in other parts of the world, the sheriff's office said the Department of Homeland Security is assisting with that part of the investigation. The sheriff's office believes Davis has communicated with "well over 100 children" between late 2020 and December 2021. The sheriff's office is encouraging parents and guardians to check their children's devices to see if they have been contacted by a "Lizzy." If they have, investigators would like you to call them at 916-874-3002 or email ICAC@sacsheriff.com. Davis is not allowed to post bail and will be due in court this Thursday. https://www.kcra.com/article/man-grooming-more-than-100-children-online-sacramento/39832099#   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Chris Merrill: DELAY LOOMING FOR BIDEN’S UKRAINE FUNDING PROPOSAL
796
EM NGUYEN ('WINN'), ABC NEWS CORRESPONDENT, WASHINGTON  President Biden's proposed new $33 billion aid package is set to bring massive ongoing support for the Ukrainian military as well as setting up long-term economic assistance for the country. Although the president called on Congress to approve the aid package as quickly as possible, it could take some time to pass with a weeklong congressional recess coming up. And with only $250 million in drawdown funds remaining for Ukraine, there are questions over just how long Ukraine can last without a new aid package. It also remains to be seen if Ukraine funding will be tied to COVID-19 relief funding, with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki saying the White House won’t dictate how they’re passed.  "We're not making a predetermination of that from here. We put forward both of these funding requests today because they're both vital, she said. “We need them both to help the Ukrainians and to help ensure we're continuing our COVID programs here in this country and around the world.” See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Chris Merrill: Adam Copeland on 49ers & round 1 of 2022 NFL Draft
798
The 49ers didn’t do a thing in Round 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft, but they should still be viewed as winners despite being wholly idle. OK, so the San Francisco 49ers weren’t the biggest winners of Round 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft. If you wanted to pick some teams who absolutely crushed it over the course of the first 32 picks, you’d likely have to look at the New York Jets, New York Giants, Baltimore Ravens and Philadelphia Eagles. Each of those teams came away happier, either landing immediate-impact players or finding the best possible talent at positions of need. The Niners, without a first-round pick because of last year’s trade-up for quarterback Trey Lance, could have only moved back into Round 1 by the way of what would have been a lucrative trade from their still-top pick, No. 61 overall, which probably wasn’t going to be the smartest of approaches considering what’s viewed as a relatively weak draft class.
