Oh, this is the worst thing that's ever happened. No, it's not. It's another tool. You know, we just need to figure out the boundaries of which we can use that tool. But are you telling me you don't want homicide solved? Are you telling me you don't want? To take violent criminals off the street, if we can find a way to do it within a framework, why don't we do it? What they want to do is eliminate the use of some of these tools like facial recognition or this stuff. I said, not only you can't eliminate them, you can't take this out of the tool back to society needs us. We just need to figure out what's the policy framework and privacy framework we can utilize it in that it doesn't make everybody happy, but if we can find that squishy metal the horse like, okay, my whole standing doing work down at D our Department of Justice and other stuff is if we can get to the point where people go, well, it could have been worse.

"Able to take an image and say with some certainty that the image that's presented in front of me represents that one particular person. Now, it turns out that is a lot easier said than done because machines need a lot of data generally to be trained on things. And the less data they have, the less, well, probabilistic they have. You know, two people that may share a lot in common may be very different, you know, two people, like Patrick Stewart as bald and some other guys bald, but you know there may have 82% similarity, but they're not the same person. And with facial recognition, we need that certainty, especially in the kinds of applications that we're trying to use facial recognition for, right? Exactly. So you can imagine you need a lot of data. But as I had mentioned earlier, you don't always know where that data is coming from. And how representative that dataset is either, which can start causing issues such as bias and potential discrimination or abuse from certain parties that are using this. So it's important to help frame this contact context as well and say, all right, I understand you mentioned there's something going on in the news very recently in 2022, but is this new or have there been issues with facial recognition before? And the answer is yes. This is been around for a number of years now. And it's from a number of different companies as well. It's not really targeted at just one specific company. Back in 2018, so you know a number of years ago at this point. Amazon came out, you know, they had their Amazon recognition system. And it falsely identified a number of lawmakers about 28 lawmakers with mug shots. The American civil liberties union, the ACLU of Northern California tested this Amazon recognition software. And it found that people of color were disproportionately mis identified in a mugshot database. So this raised issues with one, okay, is this technology accurate? Well, wow, we are misidentifying lawmakers as criminals. And also, what is some of the underlying reasons for that? And could there be some racial bias or potential misuse by law enforcement or anybody else that's using this for a number of reasons. The test, another reason why this test was brought up was that it was found earlier in 2018. So around May of 2018, Amazon was actually trying to sell the recognition technology to police agencies. Well, if you find out that it has all this bias in it and is discriminating unfairly, then what can be some of the potentials for misuse and abuse and machine making decisions. We always talk about algorithmic decision making. Are you going to rely a 100% on a system that you don't know exactly how it works? Yeah. And this actually came up. I know I know that there's another example where somebody was basically in an Apple store, they're using camera and somebody was basically falsely accused of shoplifting of false arrest because they were using this Amazon they were using this recognition system. I don't know who if I don't think it was Amazon, but they're using recognition system. And they basically say, okay, this person was identified as being a shoplifter. And all of a sudden, you know, you have this person who has nothing to do with anything. You know, is being accused. That's the problem when you put too much faith and trust and really what our probabilities probabilistic systems is we tell everybody in our education or AI education and training. Machine learning systems are probabilistic. They don't give you definites..

"The ACLU continues to give ongoing proof that it is no longer a civil rights or a civil liberties organization. It's a misnomer, the American civil liberties union is this some kind of a joke. Well, in the past it really wasn't a joke. I remember thinking back to my Dartmouth Dave, there were times when the college administration would do things to us and we would go running to the ACLU. Now we did not have a high degree of confidence that the ACLU would come and back us. And we knew that if they did back us, they would say things like, oh, well, these are right-wing extremists, but you know what even right wing extremists have the right to free speech. So, but despite the hemming and hawing, we had this belief that the ACLU being a civil liberties organization would feel some moral pressure to take our side because we were being what? Well, deprived of our civil liberties. And the ACLU on these issues. On civil liberties issues was by and large, pretty sound. In fact, ACLU took a quite extreme position defending free speech when they defended the Nazis marching in Skokie, famous case. And the ACLU has now flipped. They've gone from being pro free speech to being anti free speech. They've gone from being a pro free assembly to being anti free assembly, essentially one by one, they're giving up on all of our civil liberties. And they're emerging as nothing more than a sort of left wing organization that will go with the left wing orthodoxy of the day. Now the latest proof of this comes in the issue of curricular transparency. When you're dealing with public schools, let's remember these are instruments of the state. The ACLU has long had the position that schools should be transparent. They should disclose what they are doing and that bureaucrats and school boards do not get to hide what they are doing from parents or from the public. If you're a little surprised that this has been the ACLU's position, that's because you're so familiar with the carne ACLU, which no longer holds to any principle at all. So right now what's going on is about a dozen state legislatures are considering laws that basically demand that curriculums be posted online. This is part of the transparency movement, parents have a right to know. But the acyl ACLU wants to protect race and gender indoctrination. They want to protect transgender indoctrination and so they have, well, recent tweets have it all. Curriculum transparency bills are just thinly veiled attempts at chilling teachers and students from learning and talking about race and gender in schools. Now the idea here that there's some kind of open conversation going on in schools is laughable. First of all, students have no say in the public school classroom. They are completely at the mercy of teachers and administrators and bureaucrats. So the idea that students have free speech is absurd. But why don't parents who, after all, are through their taxes paying for the public school system and public schools are accountable to the public? Why shouldn't parents know what's going on? Well, the ACLU says that they shouldn't, and they are disguising their opposition to transparency by saying that they are either going to protect the free speech of the teachers. Now, interestingly, the ACLU in the past, here's the ACLU of Kentucky, Kentucky several years ago was establishing a program for Bible literacy to the idea was that school districts you should know about the Bible. We're not teaching the Bible but we're teaching about the Bible and the ACLU was you can't do this. We need transparency. We need to know what each of these districts are doing parents need to know the community needs to know, so the ACLU, this is the kind of classic ACLU and I suppose part of the reason it was easy for the ACLU to do that is because they were opposing Bible literacy. It's harder for the ACLU to stand on principle when we're talking about race and gender indoctrination. And sure enough, the ACLU has decided not to stand on principle, essentially to surrender the civil liberties position and to become nothing more than a kind of left wing hatchet organization. If you give money to the ACLU, I hope there's no one who listens to the podcast who does, but if.

"Of all sound to me a lot like common sense. Yeah right like you shouldn't have to write legislation. You shouldn't have to have reformed for the education department or the police department to know that a parent or legal guardian should be president whenever a miner's interrogated by an officer. You also should probably only call police when a student presents an imminent threat of significant harm to another person in weren't correct and we see that a lot to people are just pee. A lot of people love to call the police. You know their neighbors pissing them off. They'll just call the cops make something up or have the cops go harass them. They don't want to put my fridge. Frozen the drive through they call nine one one. Come over everything and it's it's just a complete abuse of what's supposed to be an emergency assistance thing. We'll think about this for a minute because what you're actually doing when you call the police you're requesting armed individuals generally with attitudes because they feel disk because the police so the public perception of police is horrible. Gee i wonder why because of the police. No it's an image thing. Do you think this group of people is responsible for their own public image. So yeah you're sending armed people with an attitude to wherever it is you're calling them to and if you expect good things to happen as a result of that why i hate to tell you.

They they took a position that i should be cautious because the minorities may be punished more than than the others. And that's just real recent so something very dramatic happen within months months and all that has happened and all of a sudden they don't exist anymore. The american civil liberties union. They have no credibility left. And that's why we we'll continue to look because there are a few left and glenn greenwald is certainly leading the charge on defending Libertarian ideas on on personal matters civil liberties his expertise so I think that This article hopefully will wake up some people but the big question is exactly. why shift gears. And why did they do this. Why did they become overwhelmed with this. Woke ism all the things that have to do. And this whole idea that you can't no no what truth is is i say. Oh well we we don't even know what What what it means you know to have civil liberties it becomes very very way Vague and So but there are people in the culture marxist movement that actually. I believe that there is no No ability to define truth. So if you don't if you live with that and say that is proper and you have to accept it and now politics become marxist oriented. If you can't know the truth he can't no right or wrong. You can't know that. The things that chris mentioned we teach our kids. If you can't know that if there's if there's no objective way of defining right and wrong and and true you end up with this so it almost looks like there was much what the american civil liberties were was doing. You know recognize that you could recognize that there is some truth that people didn't deserve in a natural way by a higher law that people have their own lives to run and there shouldn't be a government to do what they can do and regulate them and tell the people exactly what they can put in our bodies or what. They can't put her body. So i think it's the loss of this ability to any admission that you can't no true because there's no basis to it and it explains a lot of what's been going on in lockdown and cultural marxism and that has to eventually be addressed Or to be very difficult to win this fight or a good chuckle.

And the reason why i love it so much is because my whole family have always done it most nights especially in the summer they go out and run a mile together in through the rolling hills of the west virginia countryside. You remember the first time you ever ran for a long time Running with my mom when she was on the stroller. When i was in the stroller now troy and becky's just like every other kid except she's transgender heading into sixth grades. The first time she'd be able to run cross country for her school. She really wanted to join the team. But west virginia passed a law. That would have made it impossible for her to do so. A bill moving through the west virginia house would place new restrictions on transgender student. Athletes kabila supporters believe transgender athletes.

When i was in the stroller now troy and becky's just like every other kid except she's transgender heading into sixth grades. The first time she'd be able to run cross country for her school.

Sheriff garnett brooks and two deputies stormed into the couple's bedroom and central point acting on an anonymous tip that the couple was living in violation of virginia law. The police demanded to know. Mildew its relationship to richard. Mildred said plainly. I'm his wife and gestured at their marriage certificate on the wall. This did little to persuade the police. Even though they had not married within state lines the virginia law still forbade black and white citizens for marrying outside of virginia and then returning to live in the state as a result both richard and a pregnant mildred spent nights in jail. They eventually pleaded guilty to violating virginia law. Mildred ann richards plea bargain spared them from a one year prison sentence but ordered them to leave the state and not returned together for twenty five years. The loving somewhat followed orders after settling their court fees. They moved to washington dc where they raised. Three children occasionally making independent trips into virginia to visit family at great risk of imprisonment. Mildred richard made clandestine trips into virginia together and secretly lived there for a short period of time but by nineteen sixty three. The couple had had enough mildred.

"And I think everybody one of one of my arguments to people like you is that Isn't it a good idea to let some of the bad stuff through with this Supreme Court clearly a 63 conservative Supreme Court, it came up with citizens. United Chief Justice Roberts wrote The concurrence which talks about when they'll overturn stuff. I actually believe independent redistricting commissions are standing alone unconstitutional. And we may see that revisited because the Constitution explicitly gives it to the legislatures to do that job. So what? What do you think? Is the likelihood that maybe some of it gets through and construct down Yeah. You know, we're you know, sure. I'd love for the past bounce off the past receiver's hands and get caught by another guy on the team. I hope that happens. Yeah, but you know, this is one where the American Civil Liberties Union, The Wall Street Journal. Everybody is worried about this. It's not just a Mac and a Mac is a voice for conservatives of the age of 50 years, and you have been brilliant at putting that voice out. But I think my concern is that We're watching people push the envelope here. There are a lot of people that think that this statute could sneak its way out of the Senate. And on the one hand, sure provision would get struck down. I would hope by the Supreme Court if they accepted certain, as we all know, I clerked on the ninth Circuit U S Court of Appeals for a Reagan appointee. It's hard. Oh, did you Clark for Bobby? Clerked for just just Beezer at a time. Surety actually was on the court. And what year did you do that? I was I was on the D C circuit 83 84 year younger than I am. I'm a little bit younger 87 Okay? Seven. Yeah, 88. But there was a wonderful experience, but it one of the things that's probably the best cases I ever saw in my life. But the thing that I think come hurtling back comes hurtling back at me is you want to eliminate as many chances for bad things to happen as possible, And I think the reason a Mac is vocal on this and really thoughtfully vocal is that This has a chance for the first time in several sessions of actually seeing the light of day. It also could get amended on the floor on the house. They wanted to stick some crazy amendments on it. Could it could it Couldn't get out. I think it could will it get out. I think if we oppose it, it won't and you have folks on both sides of the aisle, saying this is not a good idea, as they're saying, don't limit namely the filibuster. But, you know I didn't think the filibuster would go away another provision. I have a firm belief and Jimmy Stewart's position on the filibuster. But the sad thing is we've watched things happened that shouldn't have happened and then It's about whether somebody catches it behind you. And you know the circuits are quirky and disagree with each other. And we all know that and the Supreme Court has a very narrow window of cases they can, except for certain. So I am. You know, my concern is that this is a serious danger if we don't focus on it and inform the American people that their rights in particular their election Process rights at the state level and their first Amendment rights. Not to mention as you say, the congressional District Line rights are all really in the crosshairs. So a Mac is mark is doing this Is it just you? We got a minute left. Bobby, is it just, You know, we're all made a Mac is a is a national organization. As you know, we speak out on constitutional issues as well as those that reflect older Americans, and the bottom line is They're strong defenders of the First Amendment, and that's probably the biggest trigger here. They're free speech, freedom of worship, freedom of assembly for grievance. They're strong supporters of the Second Amendment. Fourth six, the ninth And so the Constitution is where I tend to speak out more. We, frankly are also strong advocates, of course for reform of Social Security, federal solvency, all those things that traditional Reagan.

"Diaz J is the staff attorney public advocate at the American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont. And we're talking about an interesting case here where a police officer for those of you turned it a little bit. Lady, State State police officer. I guess a state trooper, state police sergeant at this Is a brigand. Now a sergeant want to give him his his do Or is he merely a trooper? I think he may be a sergeant now, but we'll call them sergeant record. So so he thought that Jay's client had had gestured rudely at him pulled him over. They had a conversation. I don't know how that conversation went, but The trip was walking back to his car. The conversation was over and Mr Bombard Griggs. Jay's a client actually went ahead and did make a gesture and added a AH choice word that some people utilize to disparage. Another person and the police office. Key back, rested him charged with a misdemeanor. This went on for a ah, year or so and finally, I guess everything was going to be dropped. Brigand have been transferred from the same albums Barracks up in Vermont to a different post with the state police further away and They came to. I don't want to call it an out of court settlement. But according to the article that I've read here in the Vermont Digger, is that the name of the paper you guys have up there? The Vermont digger That's right. Right? Um, in the digger. They they said that the Ah! The prosecutor and the defense attorney talked and Mr bombarded, not understandably want a conviction. The prosecutor said he believed bombard needed to learn a lesson. So would he agree? Dropped, he would agree to drop the charge in exchange for $250 donation to a charitable organization. He paid the 2 50 out of court instead of a fine as a donation is that accurate? Yes, that's probably accurate. Much blood. Is there anything I should change? Their that they wanted to know. I don't think so. I think you know, it's just the overall point. Being that prosecutor dropped the case touchiness that knew that knew that they had an uphill battle. Right? Well, no, no. No conviction. No admission of guilt. But indeed, there was a 250. Dollar Fine paid by Mr Baumgarten. So be it. So now you are representing Mr Barr guard in his civil lawsuit I assume against Sergeant Regan and by extension, the state police. In the state of Vermont. That's right. And we're suing them first and foremost for the freedom of speech violation. Mr Bomber has free speech, right? And Todos press himself, particularly to law enforcement. You know, the U. S. Supreme Court says law enforcement have to have a thick skin. Because they represent the state and in this country, we get to speak freely to public officials on tell them how we feel. And so that's that's what he was doing on Mister and Trooper Reagan retaliated against him first. When Mr Palmer didn't actually do anything, although the trooper thought he did, And then second when he actually did have some choice words for the trooper. Um, the river, then decided to retaliate by think for those who've just joined us as I think you you acknowledged in the first segment that Mr Bombard Then did, um Put together an adjective that begins with the letter F and a noun. That would be a body or orifice, which begins with the letter A Yeah, my tears. I think hopefully, most people could understand the frustration that a person would feel, you know, in Vermont and has been elsewhere, okay? The police are escalating encounters and and overreaching, abusing their authority in ways that threatened the rights of everybody and Mr Bomber decided tow Take a stand in that moment, so he kind of was representing all of us. I think he's a good example of how a lot of people feel when they went when they encounter. Um officers escalating with them. So I got to tell you what I'm driving at night and the blue lights come on behind me. There's the Children goes down my spine. I mean, I think that's a normal human reaction that you know what What have I done? Why am I being pulled over? I understand that, but, uh, I can not to try to end the conversations with, you know, language like that, But that's just me. That's okay. So now what? What language was certainly I'll just say, you know. The language is certainly on cruise, and I don't I don't think anyone wants to see that type of language. But the broader point is, you know, does a person have a right to use that language on and and do our do? Police have a right to To arrest someone or stop someone for that language. And we think the law is pretty clear on this point. We're hoping to make it even clearer in Vermont that we have that right and police officers. So you're so you're suing in Vermont court? Um, no. There's no no. Are you this is Are you claiming a federal civil rights violation? Yes, there are some. There are federal claims, and there are state claims the federal claims are pursuant to the First Amendment and forth amendment, particularly around the initial stop. And then the state claims are included there and then also included with regard to the arrest and the telling of his vehicle. Okay. And in Vermont. I don't practice in Vermont. Do you have to specify in a damn number? No. That's why I'm sorry, Dan, meaning in other words, how much you're suing for What you would like to recover? No, we don't know. Mr Robert is really more interested in having AH court ruling. To say that what to Bergen did here was wrong that it violated the law that had violated his rights in order to prevent this kind of thing from happening to other people in the future. So again, you know, he's coming forward for the safety of everyone for everyone's right. So see each other. We prevent this kind of interactions in the future, you know? Is he seeking damages as well? He is seeking damages for the violation. You know, Aziz is common and actually is necessary if you're going toe in most instances, when you're gonna bring anyone a lawsuit, he does have some damages on bond. How much is it worth? When your rights are violated. I think they sell you. Of course. We put a high price on that I worked on behalf of guy who was convicted.
