So it's a lot of hush money floating around here. And the question was what are they doing in our parts of Seattle would that three billion dollars doing random out of the CD when a historic what black people being in justified that came go back to the neighbors? They live. They go down African American school goes down to camp building. With a wreck houses found do chopped up found in the sixties. It's bad enough that they kick the black sadder. Would it? Call Chinatown lasted district back in the day. We were HR Jones youth A O J took all those store. Bill Ella Fitzgerald album used to be down here. Story motel. Historic landmarks.

It passed the procedural hurdle on Monday. But now with these amendments people who have supported it may not and what the amendments include is basically allows more people to to be tracked. Once they once once a people could conduct arrested and their release it allows them to be more of them to be tracked. So basically they serve their time. They're out of prison, but people can still trapped them it would also bar some of the people with. Conviction from participating in earn time credit, which basically requires the bureau of prison notify victims went up prisoners, we so again like you served your time, but you're still comparable to parole, but more intense, these are some of the things that people try to work through. And so now if he's very extremely conservative center monkey wrench in it. This is something that was a federated by path. And now it may be delayed until next year. Let's take a break. We'll be right back Tiffany cross out shopping keeping it real be right back. Sharpton is on news talk thirteen eighty w what if every time you went out you could cash.
