"Glad you could join us Friday ladies and John we've gotten through another week well almost anyway we got three hours to determine that but live from my kitchen table ladies and gentlemen and a lot to get to a lot to go over today the show the left the right everywhere in the middle we cover it all here on the show from a Vegas perspective and we live as I mentioned we do have a lot to get to today we haven't talked a lot the last week because of about Ahmad armory the man who was basically lynched in Georgia by three white people now not to white people there are some new revelations of new evidence in this case that if you didn't think that these three white guys were racist well you're definitely gonna think it now based on the preliminary hearing that took place yesterday we have some amazing and sad details to prove what I've been saying all along that this was a lynching these were three white people that are clearly racist they models will be clan members and it's very sad when we learned what what it was like for the last moments of Ahmad arbors life will get to that coming up here a little bit I tell you I have an interesting I don't know if I called interesting but I take on the George Floyd funeral that maybe some people won't like but I thought it was an absolute disgrace what they did at that funeral I'll explain what I mean by that coming up at the bottom of the hour so a guy that has not done any interviews since losing his job as the head football coach of UNLV that's not why the reason we're having Tony Sanchez on the show though we're having Tony sample fronts of football questions what we're having Tony Sanchez come on talking about race relations in this country Tony Sanchez has meant a great deal to this community his days at bishop Gorman high school anti when I'll be he is really helped a lot of young men and young men of color succeed in life not just on the football field so a great person to have on the show and a great man Tony Sanchez joining us coming up here a little bit later on in the probiotic opportunity to catch up with judge engine Apollo tunnel fox news contributor and it was really interesting stuff you gave us some some answers to some very difficult legal questions and it wasn't opinion it was facts that he gave us based on what he does so we're gonna play that for you if you missed it earlier in the week coming up later on in the show but you know I I was on the strip yesterday it up with some friends over at Caesars palace and I want to talk a little bit about that that experience first of all the parking was free normal he called the Caesars palace you gotta pay so right away and by the way there was very not a lot of traffic on the strip so right away I was like wow this is pretty cool I could just to park for free it's like the good old days in Las Vegas without the everybody greedy asking you for your money even if you lose money I got to spend fifteen or twenty Bucks the park so that was nice so I going to Caesar's and I cannot be honest with you not everybody was fourth mass they have rules there so I go up to the craps table because I want to play a little crops they made me wear a mask at the craps table and they they gave me a master where three people per side and other very strict with those rules but here's what the stupidity of customers and maybe the employees not enforcing rules there were people at the craps table last night at Caesars that didn't have the mask over their notes just over there myself and I said to one of the dealers any chuckled at me I'm like can you please explain to me what the point is of putting on a mask in not having an overdose I said to the guy like it's putting on a condom and a broken you keep going what's the point of having the condom on it's the same deal it doesn't make any sense so he chuckled a little bit late lap but nobody forced these people to put the mask over the nose then don't force people to have mass to begin with it makes zero sense and that is my problem with this social distancing in the casinos all together okay I went to red rock last night after Caesar's they check your temperature tell you if you're a symptomatic or not what's the point of taking someone's temperature to begin with if they're a symptomatic fever the trust me nuts this doesn't make any sense and they didn't have those dividers which by the way I think a joke anyway I'm talking about the dividers at the tables we thought it might be at the craps table might be the blackjack table there were no dividers there now they did have guidelines and they're only could be a certain number of people but let me explain to you how some of these casinos are as far as a double standard I have a perfect example for you of what I saw last night and it's a joke as you know when you play a game called Black Rock players are allowed to bend the card to touch the carts right now the so called rules and casinos across the country are you not allowed to touch parts because of the crowd of ours they don't want customers touching the cards they don't want to put anyone in extra harm's way well here's where they are completely full of crap there's a guy sitting at the table that I was at that was betting between five and twenty thousand dollars a hand last night I was in the high roller room I wasn't playing I don't have that kind of money but I was watching a friend of my play and they allow this guy to touch the cards for one reason and one reason only because he was betting huge amounts of money so according to red rock casino they're not a sponsor are shortly according to read about stations according to red rock casino you're not allowed to touch the cards because the crown of ours unless you're a high roller absurd it's ridiculous so what's next if a group of people walk into a casino on their million dollar players are allowed to open up one poker tables in the program it's a joke yeah that happened so well it's a double standard that's happened before but it's you understand as I get the win you can you can rent out a table play ten thousand twenty thousand if you want to I understand that I understand I say I'm so it's a double states not right don't have the rule if you can allow someone walk in there with a quarter million dollars and do whatever the hell they want it's so ridiculous because the private room but it doesn't matter is it private or not it doesn't matter I mean those are hundred dollar minimum tables there's a lot of people that were there that were playing a hundred dollar minimum and you let a guy not abide by the rules don't have the rules I don't care if it's somebody betting five dollars hand blackjack or five thousand hand be consistent with your ridiculous rules everywhere it went to Caesar's last night and we had dinner there we want that mesa place which is pretty fantastic but that was probably what for five thousand people there would you say collectively and it in Caesar's and all of Caesars I would say more I would say the casino was a lot there were a lot more people in there than I thought yeah I was I was very impressed but it looked like the the people that are worried masks they literally look depressed Bryant to me well I I I don't know if I I can't see their face so I don't know if they're smiling or not any that lovely baskets that they were wearing but I will say this is kind of you know walking very slowly trying to trying to beat you know ten feet away from somebody else it's just what watching the whole the whole dynamic of it was very interesting they would either give us menus such young yeah they had that with the scanner phone listen if you it's either one of you in the queue our code I'm very keen to get the menu yeah it's ridiculous a very consistent as if either one way or the other okay either practice social distancing and be consistent with all your rules or don't do it at all but stop pretending and I believe these casinos are pretending that is what they're doing it's a false sense of security why the hell would you have people wear masks mandatory when they don't have to put it over there damn notes you don't I'm sick of it why are you gonna tell everybody what they can't touch card to your brother it's you have a one time do you know how could you be sick of it I had it handed to me okay go two times yes sick of it means it's happened you know now here's a couple times several times dozens of time here's what I'm sick of okay you get sick pretty quickly that's here's what I think of I'm sick of people who have an upset stomach ways to offer to the circumstances okay thank you for that commentary here's what I'm sick of I'm sick of people being hypocrites and by the way if you look at our show run down I know you just got here if you look at the I got here at eight forty six all right all right what I'm saying is when I talk about the word hypocrite explain to you why I believe the people that ran to the George Floyd absolute oral joke okay so we'll get to that yeah but I'm just saying the reason why I'm saying I'm sick of it it's not necessarily just a few times of dope rules in the casino I'm talking about across the line with George Floyd's funeral hypocrites all explain why a little bit later on in the show but JD this isn't going to change I understand what you're saying it's only happen to be a few times we are going to have to deal with this stupidity and here's what I mean by stupidity in these casinos four months there is no consistency with their rules and it's a joke I think we're looking at a Max of sixty days of this I don't think so absolute Max of sixty days I disagree with you there but the point I'm trying my wrist has been called I mean Russia made employee database study out the call to a very mild respiratory illness if there wasn't a lot of nursing home deaths we could I mean we we want to talk about cover there was a lot of nursing home deaths would be able probably probably a plus strong flu season the mortality rate as has been proven to be roughly two point two five to point three OO this is just a lot of the I mean you look whatever the nose art for two hundred thousand people showed up there wasn't one case within two weeks then you've got if if there isn't a massive spike in cases with all these protests taking place you probably maybe two million people protesting the last week with no protest including writing etcetera if there is a massive spike of cases nationally then everything that we did as far as the lock down and shutting down businesses was totally unnecessary I think we're gonna find that out and then and then I'm in a couple weeks ago but also came out is that this virus doesn't necessarily survive on surfaces and that was one of the main reasons why the casinos were were such hot spots potentially before we you guys should be ambassadors for the city maybe work for the tourism industry here was there anything fun about going to the strip it was nice all doom and gloom with you guys no no I understand that those are wearing masked me look depressed I got that I I did enjoy just part part is just people from all over the country with with different T. shirts representing different cities and in and out of there were there was actually a lot of young women walking around it was it was a pretty good with very diverse environment but it the mask thing just it's it just freaks me out at least for now maybe I'll maybe that's something all grow into all get used to but as of now it's just kind of freaks me out a short answer no it wasn't that.

Blackout Tuesday: Why is everyone posting black squares online?

"Today the music industry is taking a strong and surprising stance the world hasn't really seen before some of the biggest music labels in the world have decided the June second today will be known as blackout cheese day as part of an initiative called the show must be paused to executives from Atlantic Records to black women Briana Agyemang and Jimmy let Thomas started this initiative in response to the recent deaths of George Floyd Brianna Taylor Ahmad armory and other black people who've been killed by police officers so today a number of major labels and artists are stopping their everyday operations in solidarity and support and to talk systemic racism in major streaming services like Spotify apple music and YouTube music are also taking part with cancellations moments of silence and special playlists but today's blackout is also drawing some criticism we've convened a special Tuesday Q. this music panel to get into it a harmony is a freelance music journalist and critic Lisa Christiansen is a CBC arts reporter on the line from Vancouver harmony today's blackout cheese day tell us exactly what record labels are doing or not doing today Kate's house so it's unclear because a lot of the record labels that have come forward and said that they're going to participate haven't been specific about what they will or will not be doing today H. I. universal music group did mention that they're holding their releases for this week and donating to bail out funds for protesters and suggestions from the two creators of this movement have included each offer some taking a break if one has been impacted by the results of the police killings and just need a moment to green they've also suggested making financial contributions to the families of George Floyd and Brianna Taylor and are breached they've also suggested making financial contributions to protesters are connecting with leaders who are building grassroots campaigns and learning more about it to raise resources for those who want to position themselves as allies Mr from what you're saying on social media today how how widespread is this it's really everywhere it really started over the weekend it started picking up and then by yesterday I just noticed almost everything I was looking at had some kind of statement music labels blog streaming service or DJ music studios even bands now this morning there are just a lot of black squares in my feet the creators of this initiative Atlanta great Atlantic record label execs to Mila Thomas and Brenda Agyemang say today is quote a day to take a beat for an honest reflective and productive conversation about what actions we need to collectively take to support the black community harmony what are you hoping for here what conversations do you hope today's blackout might spark yes so I hope it's a day of introspection for record labels for the music industry and for everyone it's time to draw a line in the sand and speak out against police brutality and systemic racism I'm also hoping it's a day to identify aspects of music industry culture that promotes anti black racism or incubate anti back racism behind the scenes and the lives of the artist but these labels represent I think it's a data call out that org charts and critically examine how many black people are consistent power and decision making tables I'm it's a time to have those conversations but also to create a concrete action plan yes I've seen some concerns emerging today around this black out the harmony especially around people using the hash tag black lives matter what are you hearing right so I'm seeing criticism emerging emerging this morning about how performative at this camp is and how potentially dangerous it is so for instance I can close with black lives matter floods out critical information that organizes are using on the ground protesters are using the black lives matter hashtags to document what is happening on the ground in real time this year fundraising links and other resources that support the black lives matter movement and right now on Instagram if you look it's just taken over with black squares with what other criticism hearing right now well I think a lot of people very very concerned that it's just perform it is it's an easy way to not do anything at all you know it's just Hey look we are observing that and also some of the language and if you look at some of the posts is very vague we're taking some time out we're going to think so I think the only way for this day to be really successful is for those of us who have sat in meetings there needs to be some actionable items that come out of this and people need to be able to prove that they did do something that day and it wasn't just to put a square up on your social media feed

"Considered from NPR news this is All Things Considered I'm Elsa Chang and I'm Mary Louise Kelly it has been three months since Ahmad armory was shot and killed while jogging in a Georgian neighborhood since then his death has been analyzed by countless commentators attorneys and officials but what about his life all these months after his death we still find ourselves asking who was a model well Aaron Morrison is a race and ethnicity reporter for the Associated Press he spent time in Brunswick Georgia talking with our Marie's parents and coaches and childhood friends and he joins us now Hey there and welcome thanks for having me start by describing for us the the neighborhood the community that Ahmad armory lived in at how long it is family been there his family had been there for you know as long as you know as as early as his pee wee football day Braeside you know I I I don't know when the family moved to Brunswick but if you want to you know description of the town it's a predominantly black town are surrounded by predominantly white subdivisions and and other communities Morse suburban or or more asking what and so what where we find a mark here he's running from his you know did you know Brunswick home into a subs sub division non acceptable shores and that's where he encounters the two men that would profiling as a burglar and and killing who are charged with shooting MPI will take us back to those P. week football days his family it told you that he was a shy kid growing up reserves they worried you never went out did they talk about how he came out of his shell they talked about he he really coming into his own as he started in his early teens to late teens started to think about what he wanted out of out of his life and you know he at one point one eight to turn his love of football the sport into a career in the NFL and that's not something that panned out really is coach told me that you know he wasn't she went in for linebacker even on the junior varsity squad of his high school it's broken the Brunswick high school friends and high of pilots is is the team that he he went out for an but he showed a lot of heart and I still managed to play for years on on his I. school football team you're the high school football coach at Jason Vaughn I gather is his name also city that Arbor had a pretty good sense of humor that he did a good imitation of his coach well our multiple people that I spoke to talked about Amman's personality his mother said he was the life of the party but then also to his coach says that he had this real ability to sense when you know his coach wasn't having a great day and so he'd go you know me and go stand next to him in the hallway and sort of imitate and tell other students to to get to class in don't be tardy don't be late and and and the coach said Jason Vaughn said that that was really you know it the way that you know that that Ahmad show care for other people it sounds like people were pretty open with you that do that our breed had some some rough patches he'd had a couple of run ins with the law in twenty thirteen and twenty seventeen there was preparation for bringing a gun to high school grounds that was a shoplifting charge but his lawyer Lee Merritt told you that or Bree was at a point of transition what we know about that what was he planning for the future well he has is his mother has four brothers or brothers three brothers and he wanted to become an electrician like like his uncle's home and so he had gone to I'm sorry yeah I'd go on please sure he had gone to you know on to to take some college courses to begin making the transition into becoming a lecturer shin but he decided to take a break sometime within the last couple of years or rather in that within the last year and that time would allow him to finish his term of probation for the charges that he pled guilty to guilty to in his late teens early twenties hi Erin Morrison he is a race and ethnicity reporter for the Associated Press telling us a little bit there about the life of a modern are pre thanks so much thank you for college students summer internships have become a key path to the job market but are those internships destined to be yet another casualty of the pandemic well as NPR's on Nick cannon's reports there are some opportunities still out there for students with hustle and look for on air ride this spring has brought good news and bad news the good news is he's not one of the most prestigious internships in the country I'm a sophomore majoring in computer science at Arizona State University and I'm an incoming internet apple the bad news it was supposed to be your Patino California but now I have to do from my that's in Tempe Arizona where an ani is been since its campus cancel in person classes due to the coronavirus he's an international student from India so we can't go home to his family right now but I don't A. it's been keeping busy by teaming up with two friends to create a website that answers the question on so many of his fellow students minds is my internship canceled dot com we're trying to combine eight news around internship statuses the crowd sourced information from more than five hundred companies so far big and small ranging from airlines to the Oscars to Walmart in Zillow the verdict just over a third of internship programs are canceled out right especially in hard hit industries like travel most of the rest are moving online for part or all of the summer and some companies are even expanding their programs in fact cloudflare an internet security company decided to double its incoming class of interns after the CEO saw on its website it's not only the tech industry that is continuing to support interns through this crisis Hamilton College in New York state is when it's extended its internship funding to graduating seniors like knock know who's taking a few years off before medical school she's got not one but three summer projects lined up one an extension of her senior thesis genetics research a second market research position with CVS health and the third doing research on the microbiome and Irish university all three from our home I feel that I am so fortunate I think that I'm able to even apply for these positions it's truly a privilege another out of the box option first firing interns this year is the virtual student federal service this program has been around for a decade offering month long unpaid remote assignments with dozens of different federal agencies from NASA to the Smithsonian because corona virus our phones our email boxes are brimming with interest by folks we never heard from before that's more Dempsey who runs the SFS she says they created a hundred and eighty four new internship placements in just the past couple of weeks agencies with long complicated names coming to us for the first time saying how do you work for Chilean and I hear you've been working virtually for ten years can we join and how can we do this remote internships of course are possible in every sector think of retail or construction the experts I spoke with say they work best when the project based so interns can complete assignments on their own time and then there were a sad that he's missing out on the camaraderie working at apple's headquarters you get to meet new people you have people walking by who are seeing how you're working and so it's a totally different experience on the plus side no one can be asking him to.

"ahmad armory" Discussed on KQED Radio

"Are things we don't know yet about the killing of Ahmad armory in Georgia N. as in any trial the suspects are entitled to the presumption of innocence but this much seems beyond question two white men one armed with a shotgun when pursuit of a black man who was jogging they later told police that they suspected him of some break ins in the neighborhood there was some type of interaction and Travis McMichael shot and killed Ahmad armory but local prosecutors didn't see the shooting is a crime they didn't arrest make Michael and his father Greg for more than two months to understand the laws in the mindset that makes such a thing possible the new Yorkers Jelani Cobb turned last week I repeat Robbins Robbins is a professor at the law school of American University and is co director of the criminal justice practice and policy institute here's Johnny comp with I repeat Robbins Mr barn hill the second prosecutor who later recused himself wrote a letter to the the police department of the local police department saying it appears that they are here he's referencing McMichael's their intent was to stop and hold this criminal suspect until law enforcement arrived under Georgia law this is perfectly legal how does the statute explicitly allow for pursuit and under what circumstances well I'll answer that but add another layer so when they make Michaels were pursuing Mr armory thinking they had the right to make a citizen's arrest because they think that Mr Arbury was committing a crime in that Welling under construction I guarantee you they make Michaels had no idea whether the crime being committed was a felony or a misdemeanor in fact in the police report it it says to crime it mentions to crimes one is homicide and the other is criminal trespass well if it's criminal trespass that's a misdemeanor and in citizen's arrest law the restores would have fewer rights if it was a burglary that Mr Abreu was committing that would be a felony and the citizen's arrest law would allow greater leeway to the citizens so with that in mind you was it surprising to you that the prosecutor actually to prosecutors looked at the situation and concluded that it was a valid citizen's arrest it says that conclusion indicates to me either that they don't know anything about the law citizens arrest or they are confusing citizen's arrest with self defense and stand your ground laws crew could do fort sort those things out for sure so under the citizen's arrest law basically a person can hold an offender or suspected offender until the police arrive basically it's their job to operate as witnesses not to be a substitute for the police not to take the law into their own hands you had to that though that not all suspected offenders are willing to be arrested and if an altercation ensues that it may be that the arrester and the suspect get into some situation involving use of force and then we get into self defense which is a complicated area of the law even without issues of stand your ground the ordinary self defense law has has a duty to retreat with certain exceptions the stand your ground law in Georgia eliminates the duty to retreat so this case in my opinion stands or falls on whether the initial citizen's arrest confrontation was proper in the first place so we've seen you know the the standard ground laws that really entered our consciousness around the case of Trayvon Martin who was a teenager seventeen years old who was shot by a neighborhood watch man by the name of George Zimmerman in Florida and you know this kind of thing I think this is I think this alerted the public to the fact that there were so many jurisdictions that have these laws and now we're seeing a similar conversation beginning to take place around citizens arrests and the armada are very case is there any connection in your mind behind bars you see such inflammatory situation specifically around the lines of race of with these doctrines wonderful question it seems to me what we're seeing here is a deadly combination of the law of citizen's arrest Floyd self defense laws particularly when we have a stand your ground doctrine as we do in Georgia and arguably racial profiling as well it may be that when they make Michaels raise this idea of stand your ground and self defense built on citizen's arrest the whole thing is a pretext for what starts out as racial profiling and and I would argue that they should have stayed in the truck on it we we seen the the video Greg McMichael was on the phone with the police who arrived as certainly within a minute or so perhaps less than a minute of the shooting the role of a citizen in a citizen's arrest is to operate as a witness it it's not as if they had information that Mr Aubrey was escaping from a major felony of bank robbery or homicide or even a burglary there was no burglary here if this was a burglary perhaps there would have been a right to a citizen's arrest but since this was only a criminal trespass no such right and if there is no such right to do a a citizen's arrest here then when Travis make Michael confronted Mr armory and started the altercation it seems to me that Travis make Michael was the initial aggressor and as such loses the right to self defense another thing that made this case stand out to me was that you know the offense that started the entire pursued at least according to other Nick Michaels was his presence on the property on the grounds of a house that was under construction and you have just a few months ago before the the cultured lockdowns began I was visiting friends in Atlanta and I went for a walk there is lots of new construction in the neighborhood and I saw a house that was under construction and I thought mmhm I wonder what the floor plan is for this place and I didn't go inside but I walked kind of up on to where the lawn would be imposed looking around is like they're putting the staircase over here in the dark over there and it was just a kind of interesting observation I made while walking through the neighborhood and continued walking and the idea that could be provocation for an armed pursuit was unnerving in shocking to me at the least and I do I agree with you and it seems to me that people don't know what the law is specially a law that doesn't get a lot of attention like citizen's arrest law so when somebody does something that even reasonable people might do you should have it might be a very minor crime like troubled criminal trespass going on to someone's property when you don't have a right to be there that doesn't justify detaining someone using force unreasonable force and causing a death if that part of this whole situation falls as I think it should then any defense they make Michaels are raising I think would fall like a house of cards the foundation the citizen's arrest is not a good foundation you look at lots of cases of Simpson's arrest and attempted citizen's arrest these laws have created lots of problems and lots of situations that seem to be on the face very difficult and troubling what do they say on the books a lot of laws whose time has passed stay on the books only because the legislature has not gotten around to repealing them or they think well maybe it's because these these laws have some purpose that we don't presently sees so let's just leave them on the books and and hope for the best but when you see abuses like this when you see on reasonable use of deadly force officials have to use to stand up and and pay attention because the if if we don't do something about it after such an obvious abuse in this case then we're going to see many more abuses in the future we don't want citizens arrest you to become a pretext for an unfortunate end to situations that start with racial profiling we want organized police forces where the members of the police force have been trained to deal with offenders.
