Chicago, Kabul Harris, Eddie Johnson discussed on Morning Show with Sean and Frank

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Spotlight on cargo for something that is both egregious and untrue is simply shameful. I'm also concerned about what this means moving forward fake crimes. My concern is that hate crimes would now publicly be met with a level of skepticism there. Previously didn't been happening. This case in particular involved hours avail evidence, which when combined with old fashioned police work uncovered the truth. I only hope that the truth about what happened receives the same amount of attention that the hoax did. There are some are suggesting that the cost for this investigation now well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and you speak about reparations. They ought to start with that. If he is convicted Johnson went on to say this this offended him greatly. This announcement today recognizes that empire actor Jesse Smolin took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career. I'm left hanging. My head and asking why why would anyone especially an African American man. Use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations. How could someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with simple and see an opportunity to manipulate that symbol to further his own public profile, how can an individual who's been embraced that a city Chicago. Turnaround slap everyone in this city in the face by making these false claims bogus police reports calls real harm. They do harm to every legitimate victim. Who the need of support by police and investigators as well as the citizens of the city, but I'm offended by what's happening, and I'm also angry. So that's a Chicago police chief Eddie Johnson, the rather unusual police press conference yesterday Hollywood and the Democrats are dodging the condemning smollet. Again, he's innocent until proven guilty smart. As even telling his fellow cast members an empire on the set in Chicago that he is innocent of this didn't he didn't do these things. And he swears to God that he is innocent of all these charges. We shall see what happens in court. Will you really have to thank the Chicago police department for acting quickly. They probably you know, smelled a rat almost from the very beginning. And the more the stench, you know, occurred, the more they were out there getting additional warrants to prove their case that it was all hoax because I think the police Commissioner there Eddie Johnson realized that if we didn't get to the nub of this real quick like it could result in an explosive situation in already violence city like Chicago, and all you have to do is look at the, Freddie gray case, the Ferguson case, the Trayvon Martin case had this gone on for several days as a few more days or so I think Eddie Johnson realize. Is what the repercussions could have been. Now, they're coming off the la- quantum McDonald case a shooting of a black individual in Chicago as well. So all of that is a very important right about that. But again for the for the media for Hollywood for all these Democrats like Kamala, Harris and Cory Booker and all the immediately rush to judgement and not wait for all the facts to come in there the arsonists here. They're the ones that pouring gasoline on the fire, and they have a responsibility to come out, and they don't have to condemn jussie smollet. But what they should do is. You know, again, we were wrong. We apologize. We acted irrationally. We in a rush to judgment. And let's wait until due process is plays out here and see what happens to Mr. smollet, and these charges. It's just amazing to me second big story. We're covering this hour is the two leaning democratic presidential candidates US senators, comma, Harris of California off of Massachusetts reportedly said, they support reparations. For black Americans affected by slavery. The New York slimes reporting that Harris double down on her support for reparations after agreeing with the host on the popular radio show, the breakfast club, not the regime race conscious policy was necessary to address the legacies of slavery and discrimination. The United States, here's an excerpt from Kabul Harris on the breakfast club in New York. Well, I think that we have got to address that again, it's back to the inequities there through. America has a history of two hundred years of slavery. We had Jim crow we had legal segregation in America. For a very long, the Voting Rights Act was only strong for fifty years, and then they wiped it out with this United States Supreme court and Shelby decision to the point that twenty two states. Immediately thereafter, put in place laws that we won court found were crafted with surgical precision to have black people not be able to vote. That's a camel Harris in favor of slavery reparations, Julian Castro. Another other democrat running for president indicated he would support reparations. Cory Booker also running for president. He wants to help poor children by giving them government funded savings accounts that would hold up the fifty thousand dollars for lowest income brackets and Kristen gillibrand wants to allow black Americans without checking account to Bank of their local post office. So it's it's identity politics where get a lot of it between now and the fall of twenty twenty. Reparations the money's ought to come out of Democrats pockets because they're the ones that stood in the way of the civil rights legislation for years of writing the wrong that had been done. It was the Republicans actually who who pushed forward the the whole idea of..
