Dan I, Martin Goo Gino, Carl Douglas discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
All I have to say. There were a lot of white faces behind him with masks. Not a lot of black faces Carl Douglas with us here on ESPN Radio Carl. What do you make of that sound and thank you for joining us? First of all Dan. Thank you for having me on your show man. This is a fabulous platform and I appreciate all that you do got are doing. That is the essence of what I am finding bout. And the police commissioner in new. York has been more forward thinking than others on the news. But there is a culture here that we have to continue to struggle against for their ever to be any true reckoning and change. The pendulum is going to swing back toward the police sometime soon. Another COP IS GONNA. Get Shot. A white woman somewhere has gone good brutalized, and the American narrative is then going to shift back. To the law and order. I'm not sure if this is the beginning of the end. Or the end of the beginning. What I also WANNA. Talk about the Dan yesterday. I I mentioned to listeners about Martin Goo Gino. G You G I N O.. He's that seventy five year old white man that we all saw be pushed down by stormtroopers. I WANNA. Make sure your listeners keep Martin Gucci knows name firmly on their lips because he is not in fair condition. I don't care what the public statements from hospital says. Dan? I'm not a doctor, but I've been a personal injury lawyer for thirty five forty years and I know enough about medicine to say that Martin Gino have sustained a traumatic brain injury. And at seventy five years old. Less than one week after the injury. There is no way of knowing the full extent of his mental injury suffering. Dan So bleeding may now be under control. But Martin Gino faces a lifetime of uncertainty because his brain has suffered a serious injury. He is not in fair condition. What needs to happen in terms of Police Reform Carl and what can happen what will happen? What are you optimistic about here? Let me tell you my y'all thank I get this off the top of my tongue. I have been working and thinking so that I can best prepare your listeners for for for for my insight. because. There is a time that we can think about what we can do to make police better. You hear the narrative right now that is that is a popular de-fund the police. I'm a messenger. Dan and I. Don't think that's a strong a messaging tagline that we should use. Particularly and election year. There's an old political concept that says if you're explaining in politics. Then you're losing. And whenever someone talks about defunding the police. There had to explain what they really mean and the next sentence. But reimagining the role of police officers is not such a radical idea. Let experts do the job that experts are trained to do. I want you to? Make sense right. I suggest you Dan that cops show be sent to nine one one calls when there is a mental health crisis. Cops are trained killers, not social workers. Mental health experts should be sent on those calls instead. And the money used to finance, those calls should be redirected to mental health experts so that they have the resources to do their jobs well. Dan when you realize that only five percent. Of. All arrests offer violent crimes. That could mean a lot of money for mental health experts. Let's say thirty percent of all nine one one calls are help calls due to a mental crisis. I say then we should redirect thirty percent of the resources, a police staff to mental health experts. Send in the experts to the house to help the family if they're not if they're distress, don't send them the train killers. It makes perfect sense to quote your president. Last week Dan I mentioned the tragic case of fifty six year old Oro newness senior. And you and I. He's a husband and father of seven. He had never been in trouble before in his life. His daughter caught nine one one for mental. Health crisis intervention. Mr Nunez was armed. She never thought the cops were going to suffocate him to death. He was a little bitty Guy, no taller than Stugatz. It's funny because you know. COPS will be the first to say that they are not a social worker. And I say believe them. Gosh you know I was watching your show initially for about six months before I realized that's do wasn't like six three or something like that. People think I'm five nine and that he's much bigger because his voice is impressive. Call stay there for a second because we're up against, it will come back to you in a second nearly as oppressive. Carl's voice my God it into facing. Six seven he he really does..
