Solutions 05: Season Finale

There is no silver bullet that will solve homelessness. But there are many solutions that can reduce houselessness. Our 5th episode, and the finale of our first season, covers some of what Reno locals are doing -- and recommending -- to solve the city's homeless crisis. We speak with houseless individuals, advocates, Reno's chief of police, and nonprofits about what can be done. We also visit Washoe County's Crossroads program, which has a high success rate but a lengthy waiting list. Solutions #5 relied heavily on the following sources:1. "A History of Homelessness in America," a presentation by Steve Carlson, Psy.D. 2. "The History of Homeless in America, 1640s to present" by Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness. www.dceh.org/the-history-of-hom…-1640s-to-present/3. "Homelessness in America" by the National Alliance to End Homelessness. endhomelessness.org/homelessness-in-america/4. "Amid booming economy, homelessness soars on US West Coast." Associated Press, Nov. 9, 2017. ...

Solutions Season Two Preview: The Killing of a Cop

Solutions: Maladjusted Youth

EIPOSE 1, SEASON 2: John Steven Olausen struggled to learn. Just out of high school, but without a diploma, he had a learning disability, dyslexia, that hampered his ability to understand the basics. Olausen was caught in an ugly divorce between his parents. He was also easily influenced. His friends said he was a Boy Scout, willing to do anything for anyone at any time. It was these traits that would land him on death row within a year of coming to Reno, Nevada in 1979. Learn more about this series, and listen to all of the episodes, here: thisisreno.com/solutions/

Solutions: Maladjusted Youth

Solutions: They Called Him Jimmy

EPISODE 2, SEASON 2: Reno Police Officer James Hoff died in the line of duty. It was an undercover drug deal that went fatally wrong. But his legacy continues to be honored through today. Jimmy’s murder continues to draw raw emotion. Though not even alive when Hoff’s death occurred, the officer’s legacy as a fallen officer resonates through today to the men and women of the Reno Police Department. The James D. Hoff Peace Officers Memorial honors the risks law enforcement make each and every day. While law enforcement’s role in recent years has come under increasing scrutiny, the life-and-death scenarios faced by police remain. The role police had in Hoff’s killing, however, remains unsettled.

Solutions: The Setup

EPISODE 3, SEASON 2: There have been few events that shocked the Reno community as much as the 1979 murder of undercover Reno Police Officer James Hoff. Jimmy, as he was known, was allowed by the Reno Police Department to engage in a drug deal that ended his life. While most put blame on the four youth who were found guilty of Hoff’s murder, retired law enforcement, and Jimmy’s stepbrother, also say that RPD supervisors never should have allowed the deal to go down the way it did. Two of youth were sentenced to life, and two others were sentenced to death for their role in Hoff’s killing. Steve Olausen’s sentence was later changed to life without the possibility of parole. In addition to Jimmy’s stepbrother, this episode features interviews with retired police who knew Hoff. We also speak with the former girlfriend of the killer who remains on death row. Tom Wilson's ex-girlfriend Kellie Morrissey-Schmanski publicly reveals her remembrance of what lead up to the fatal drug buy....
