Today is Friday October Twenty, third two thousand twenty on this day in nineteen, eighty, two police in southern Arizona engaged in a shootout with members of the Christ miracle, healing center and Church the incident resulted in two tragic deaths. Welcome today and true crime a spotify original from park cast due to the graphic nature of today's crimes. Listener discretion is advised extreme caution is advised for listeners under thirteen. Today, we're discussing a shootout between Co. Cheese County deputies and members of a tight knit religious community. Let's go back to the morning of October twenty third nineteen, eighty, two to the small town of Miracle Valley near the southern border in Arizona. The weather was mild, but tensions were at a boiling point officers from the local sheriff's department stood tensely outside of the large compound of the Christ Miracle Healing, center and Church. The day before on. October twenty second, the officers attempted to serve arrest warrants on unpaid traffic fines to members of the group. But as they tried to enter the building about two dozen members of the group refused to let them inside. They claimed neither of the men in question had any traffic tickets and refused to negotiate. Now, authorities were unsure of how to proceed, but they feared escalating the situation animosity between the police and the church had been building for years. The Christ Miracle Healing Center in Church boasted around three hundred members totaling nearly two thirds of Miracle Valley's population. Since arriving in nineteen seventy, nine from Chicago members of the all black church clashed with the nearly all white community of Miracle Valley. The congregation wanted to preach their fundamentalist Christian teachings in peace. But outsiders derided them as a cult because of their strict beliefs and distrust of modern medicine. Then, in nineteen eighty tensions increased when the group began an armed security patrol in the community to ward off theft and vandalism. The action sparked fear in many Miracle Valley residents and made even some local authorities nervous some worried become too militant and non-members felt intimidated by the patrols presence. Then on April Twentieth Nineteen, eighty, two, six months before the standoff twenty or so members of Church got into a confrontation at the local high school after a church member was arrested for assaulting a female bystander the before the on campus scuffles soon, morphed into a massive brawl when authorities arrived to break up the fighting members of the Church carjacked nearby witnesses and fled into the blazing Arizona Desert. Authorities gave chase but were unable to apprehend the suspects before they made it back to the compound. The only way the men were finally caught was through the intervention of the state's governor Bruce Babbitt who personally reached out to Thomas for cooperation. Eventually, three members of the church were given prison sentences. By. That point trust between the community and the group had all but vanished. So when authorities tried to enter the compound on the morning of October twenty, third nineteen, eighty two to attempt to serve the arrest warrants a second time they were at their wit's end deputies nervously discussed the best course of action outside the compound thirty five officers from several different agencies and over a dozen cars waited on standby. Authorities were intent on avoiding any further escalation? The agencies reached a consensus to let one squad car just before dawn to apprehend the suspects in question they hoped that by that point, tensions might have deflated enough for a safe environment. According to authorities the morning of October twenty third, a single patrol car slowly entered the compound to deputies exited the vehicle and proceeded to go door to door looking for their suspects. As they walked to their next address, a car rolled up and angry church members filed out. Each of them carried improvised weapons, including Tire Irons, clubs, and wrenches. The group immediately surrounded the officer and berated them. It only took a few moments for things to spin out of control authorities claimed the members jeered at the officers and became aggressive even a few swings at them when they ran back to their squad car as the officers retreated, they radioed in for backup. Police. Warmed the compound while over a hundred members of the church came out of their houses to join in the conflict there was pushing and shoving punches were thrown and people were knocked to the ground in the commotion bystanders. saw.

Hello everyone it's eaves checking in here to let you know that you're going to be hearing two different events in history in this episode. They're both good. If i do say so myself on with the show. Hi i'm eve. Welcome to this day in history class. I show that reveals a little bit more about history day-by-day. The day was april twentieth. Nineteen sixty eight. British member of parliament not gave a speech to a conservative association. Meeting in birmingham england that became known. As the rivers of blood speech powell conservative mp for the wolverhampton south west constituency used the speech to spouse his opposition to mass immigration. He argued that so called ordinary english. People were becoming a persecuted minority in strangers in their own country and he said that for immigrants integration was difficult if not impossible powell proposed ending almost all immigration into britain and encouraging immigrants. Already there to leave voluntarily. Needless to say the speech was and remains controversial. By the time. Powell gave his speech. Hundreds of thousands of people from the commonwealth of nations countries have moved to britain. This was largely due to the british nationality. Act nineteen forty eight which created the new status of citizen of the united kingdom and colonies that apply to people who were born or naturalized in the uk. Or it's calling me. These people were permitted to live and work in the uk without a visa which led to a rapid increase in immigration in the uk. Over the next two decades british lay people government officials began to object to the large number of migrants and express their desire to bar new immigrant and thin immigrants already. They're back out of the uk in nineteen fifty seven it committee forms to figure out quote ways which might be adopted to check the immigration into this country of colored people from british colonial territories after that committee found that no restrictions on immigration were required. The issue was tossed around without any real conclusion for several years. But in nineteen sixty two parliament passed the commonwealth immigrants. Act which tighten regulations on the immigration of all commonwealth passport-holders according to the act commonwealth immigrants had to apply for work about your grade it based on their employment prospects to be able to settle in the uk in nineteen sixty five. The government reduced the number of vouchers available after asians from kenya and uganda began to immigrate to britain in nineteen sixty seven enoch powell and other conservatives started campaigning for more restrictions on immigration parliament soon passed the commonwealth immigrants act nineteen sixty eight which further restricted immigration to the uk for citizens of the commonwealth of nations countries to have automatic right of entry into the uk the person or at least one of his parents or grandparents had to be born naturalized or adopted in the uk or had to have to come citizen by registration under the british nationality acts. It was in a climate divided over the issue of immigration. That powell gave his rivers of blood speech in it. He criticized the race relations. Bill going through parliament. That would make it illegal to refuse housing employment or public services to people based on color race ethnicity or nationality. He argued that in a couple of decades or less quote. The black man will have the whip hand over the white man. He gave an anecdote about one of his constituents. A white woman who was harassed by so-called grinning pekingese and he pointed to the race riots and violence during the civil rights movement as an example of what would happen in the uk stayed on the same path immigration and race relations. Powell said in the speech it almost passes belief that at this moment. Twenty or thirty additional immigrant. Children are arriving from overseas and wolverhampton alone every week and that means fifteen or twenty additional families a decade or two hints. Those whom the gods wish to destroy they. I make mad. We must be mad literally mad as a nation to be permitting. The annual inflow of some fifty thousand dependents who are for the most part the material of the future growth of the immigrant descended population. It is like watching a nation busily. Engaged in heaping up. Its own funeral pyre. Nowhere in the speech tip house say the phrase rivers of blood but near the end of the speech. He did say the following as i look ahead. I am filled with foreboding like the roman. I seem to see the river. Tiber foaming with much blood. This illusion to virgils epic poem. Aeneid is weird. The nickname for the speech comes from during his speech in after it was finished. How was applauded. After pal gave the speech people came out in support of repatriating immigrants while others denounced his racism after he gave a speech conservative leader. Ted heath dismissed him from the conservative shadow cabinet and eventually he left the conservative party and became an ulster. Unionist powell suggestions to restrict immigration did not lead to any major anti immigration policy changes but his anti-immigrant views were popular at the time and the phrase enoch was right gain traction in a year. Since i'm eve steph coat and hopefully you know a little more about history today. Did yesterday get more notes from history on twitter. Instagram and facebook at td. I h podcast.

The Mueller report, Columbine, and forgiveness: What Good Friday means today

"Really? The Muller report, Columbine and forgiveness. What Good Friday means today? This is Dr Jim Dennison's the daily article podcast for Friday. April nineteenth twenty nineteen. The long-awaited Muller report was released to the public yesterday. The reaction has been as partisan as we would expect the president's supporters and his critics are both using the report claim vindication for their positions. Analysts are already speculating on ways the parties will use it in the twenty twenty election cycle. We should not be surprised by this polarized response. Our culture has jettisoned absolute truth and objective morality, claiming tolerance for all viewpoints as our highest value. But this goes only halfway many demand that we tolerate their views, but feel no obligation to tolerate ours years ago, a wise friend explained to me, the three steps of political success one convince people they have an enemy to convinced him that they cannot defeat their enemy three convinced him that I will defeat their enemy if they vote for me or. Forgive me money or do whatever. I want them to do in our zero sum for me to win. You must lose culture. Is there? A better way forward. The twentieth. Anniversary of the Columbine massacre. Is this Sunday on the morning of April? Twentieth. Nineteen ninety nine two teenagers began shooting fellow students outside Columbine high school in suburban Denver. They killed twelve students and a teacher and wounded twenty others before killing themselves, tragically Columbine has become not just a name or an event but a category. According to the Washington Post two hundred and twenty six thousand students have been exposed to gun violence at school since the Columbine shooting at least one hundred and forty three children educators and others have been killed in assaults into other two hundred ninety four have been injured the threat to our students is clearly not over more than one hundred and thirty schools across Denver closed Wednesday as authorities search for a woman reportedly obsessed with the Columbine massacre in deemed a credible threat to the community. She was later found dead of an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound school shootings have become so common that a support group. The principles recovery network has been formed. Help principals who schools experience a such tragedy. How can the Columbine survivors and families of the victims? Best respond to Sunday's tragic anniversary, the answer is relevant not only to their grief. But to our polarized society, as well, Jesus instructed us to love, your enemies, do good to those who hate, you bless, those who you pray for those who abuse you. He also taught us to pray. Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven. Our debtors does this mean that we do not hold people accountable for their sins. Absolutely not when someone sends against you. You are to go and tell him as fault between you and him alone. That's Matthew eighteen fifteen if he will not listen, you are to take one or two others along with you. If he refuses to listen to them tell it to the church, if he refuses to listen to the church, he is to be removed from the community of faith, if the senate's criminal nature, the state is to punish as an adventure who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer that's Romans thirteen four and the ultimate judge got himself. Never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God for it is written vengeance. Is mine. I will repay says the Lord as Romans twelve nineteen says, according to the mayo clinic when someone you care about her chew, you could hold onto anger resentment and thoughts of revenge or embrace forgiveness and move forward. Mayor reports that refusing to forgive causes us to become depressed live in the past bring anger and bitterness into every new relationship and lose purpose in life, of course to forgive does. Not mean to forget those who survived Columbine can never forget that horrific day, nor does it mean to excuse the shooter's for their heinous crimes forgiveness means to release them to the God of Justice and honor the dead by living faithfully the same is true. With regard to the political animosity of our day rather than people exclusively on the basis of party or position. Let's see them as God sees them souls for whom Jesus died. Our gracious father calls us to be bold. But also forgiving you want us to speak biblical truth with conviction, but also to love those with whom we disagree on the first Good Friday Jesus prayed from his. Cross for those who nailed him there. He died for them. And for us as as as fifty three five says, he was pierced for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace and with his wounds. We are healed. Our savior was full of grace and truth. Let's follow his example today.

Thirty three children and adults died in those incidents more than sixty people were injured experts say to prevent these attacks. We need to understand what's behind the rage of school shooters NPR's retu- Chatterjee explains. What puts these kids on the path to violence, April. Twentieth. Nineteen ninety nine it felt like the beginning of a new and terrible era in America where parents feed the kids could go to school in the morning and never come home to students walked into Columbine high school in Littleton, Colorado and shot dead thirteen people and then killed themselves when sue clean bowled heard. About the shooting. She panicked and hoped her son was safe, then she learned that he was one of the shooters. I was completely confused. I didn't know what had happened or why I was trying to accept it. My son was dead that he was being held responsible for this terrible. Terrible tragedy. Clean bowled says after the incident his son Dylan was called many things. My son was called a monster. He was called evil. But that wasn't the boy she knew he was kind of end friendly and nice and gentle, Ben months after his death. She discovered a side of her son that he'd hidden from nearly everyone the police returned his journals to her there. I could clearly see here is a young man who was saying I am an agony. I want to get a gun. I want to kill myself. He was saying that when he was fifteen years old his writings revealed that he'd been depr-. Pressed and suicidal for almost two years before the shooting. Now, it's almost impossible to empathize with someone like that the brutality of their crime is unspeakable psychologists John Vangel gets that someone went out of their way to target and kill children who look like our children and teachers who like our teachers and did it for no other reason than to hurt them. And that's very personal van drill directs the safety and risk management program at Salem Kaisa public schools in Oregon, but he another psychologist do think about what it's like to be one of these kids because they want to figure out how to prevent the shootings and keep children safe. There's no official count of school shootings and extensive Washington Post database shows more than two hundred thirty incidents were gun was fired at k through twelve school since Columbine six of those were mass shootings. And here's what experts have learned about school shooters. Most have had one struggle after another. My assumption based on years of research into dozens of perpetrators is that there are significant psychological issues. Peter Langman is a psychologist in Allentown Pennsylvania, and the author of the book why kids kill inside the minds of school shooters. So whether or not they've ever been diagnosed whether or not they're severely mentally ill. You know, something is going on that could be addressed through some kind of treatment. But most never got treatment. Even though they had childhood traumas unstable homes. They felt like outcasts at school where they'd being bullied and many hit experienced severe losses. The defendant in the case of the shooting in partly Florida last year, his mother died the before the shooting his father died when he was a little boy John van drill says these struggles add up over time. They don't feel very good about themselves or where they're headed in their life. They may wish someone would kill them or they may wish that they could kill themselves. Most of the. These kids were in despair, many did kill themselves in their attacks. But most people were feeling suicidal. Don't attack us and most people with mental illness are not violent. So what makes a tiny percentage of kids become violent and homicidal van drill. And other experts think it's because these kids had been struggling alone and failing for a long time, and their despair had turned into anger. Read Malloy is a forensic psychologist and has consulted with the FBI. There's loss there's humiliation. There's anger in. Then there's blame blame a precursor to violence. These individuals had a history of collecting grievances and fantasizing about revenge and the fantasy is one in which the teenager begins to identify with other individuals that have become school shooters that have used violence as. A way to solve their problems and access to guns tons that fantasy into a reality. But psychologists say these attacks can be prevented there often weeks or months in the planning and John van drill says there are signs that someone struggling and heading towards violence. I've stopped being the kid the wind to boy scouts and church and loved his grandmother. And now I wanna be that kid with camouflage who's isolated and attacks people in hurts them, fourteen months before Columbine Dylan Klebold who was a gifted student started to get into trouble. He and his friend. Eric Harris got arrested after they broke into a van installed some equipment. His mother was concerned. She asked him did he need therapy. He said, no. And she never realized how deep the problem really was the piece that I think where I failed. The most is that we tend to underestimate the level of pain. That someone may be in. We all have a responsibility to stop and think someone we love may be in a crisis. The solution isn't to expel or suspend a student which is what happened to her son timing against I collagen educators, a found that what these kids need is support and help tomorrow on morning edition, what schools are doing to prevent trouble.

April 20, 2020: Zodiac Sends 13-Character Cipher

"Do to the graphic nature of today's crimes listener discretion is advised extreme. Caution is advised for listeners. Under Thirteen today is Monday April twentieth. Twenty twenty on this day in nineteen seventy. The notorious Zodiac killer said one of his most disturbing communications to the San Francisco. Press the letter not only held the key to the killer's identity but it also included a detailed bomb threat that terrified the public. Welcome to today and true crime. Apar- cast original today. We're covering the my name. Is Cypher. One of several cryptic messages the Zodiac killer sent to bay area newspapers. Let's go back to San Francisco on April Twentieth. Nineteen seventy as the sun rose over the city. The Zodiac killer slipped an envelope with the cipher into an unknown postbox and fled the scene as quickly as possible. The next morning the letter was rushed to the editor of the San Francisco Chronicle. He wasn't surprised to see another message from the Zodiac over the past year the paper had grown accustomed to hearing from the mysterious serial killer every few months but the Zodiac still knew how to keep reporters on their toes by the time the editor had finished reading. The killer's latest message. He was aghast. For the second time the Zodiac had threatened to blow up a school bus full of children in a previous letter the Zodiac included a hand drawn diagram of an explosive device. He planned to build. The plan showed. It would be placed on the side of the road and rigged to blow up as a school. Bus drove by after examining it the FBI had determined that the plans for the device were theoretically sound. It was no idle doodle or empty threat. It was possible the Zodiac had an actual plan that could result in a devastating explosion in the name letter the Zodiac. It updated his previous diagram and sent a more complex blueprint for the bomb. This one included a special circuit designed to prevent the device from detonating on a cloudy day. Apparently the Zodiac had determined that without this failsafe the bomb could accidentally be triggered by an overcast sky. Though it wasn't clear exactly why this was the case the Zodiac wrote that he had planned to plant the bomb earlier but his work had been interrupted when he was swamped out by the recent rainstorms. In San Francisco the credible threats along with the fact that the killers knowledge of bomb-making increased disturbed investigators working on the case but as terrifying as the blueprint for the bomb was the short cypher. The Zodiac transcribed at the beginning of the letter was even more compelling. He wrote that when the code was broken his identity would be revealed. The Chronicle made copies of the note and pass the original onto authorities as they done with the previous messages the FBI soon determined that the handwriting on the letter matched the previous Zodiac messages. Unfortunately they were unable to crack the code since the cipher only contained thirteen characters. There were too many potential solutions. As far as investigators were concerned the possibilities were infinite the Zodiac must have known that without more characters. The cipher was little more than a farce. Add to that the fact that the Zodiac had a habit of deliberately misspelling words even in his ciphers and the challenge was really just a red herring. Authorities concluded that the code was only meant to waste their time something. The killer had attempted to do plenty of times in the past. This line of thought also led them to question the scoreboard that the Zodiac included at the bottom of his letter it read Zodiac Ten s F P zero at the time the Zodiac was only known to have committed five murders. His latest scoreboard claimed double that but since the killer enjoyed taunting police and the media it was tempting to believe that he was lying to throw off investigators on the other hand the Zodiac had successfully carried out at least four attacks. His most recent murder had been committed in the middle of a San Francisco Street the prospect that he committed other murders. The police didn't know about seemed possible. Once again detectives were working overtime to delve into the Zodiacs cryptic clues and decode his bizarre ciphers. As it turned out there work would continue for decades. This letter wasn't the last time they'd hear from the elusive killer coming up. We discuss the aftermath of the Zodiac's letter and Cypher high listeners.

Sent the latest in a string of strange and terrifying letters to the San Francisco Chronicle as always authorities hope that the Zodiac had slipped up and left some kind of clue in his message. Perhaps a stray hair or a fingerprint. But this time just like all the others day. Were disappointed by now. Authorities were used to the feeling it seemed like every report they wrote about the Zodiac had to end uncertainly with the words the investigation continues but the name letter was particularly galling. The Zodiacs last confirmed victim had been taxi driver. Paul Stein the killer shot Stein. In the middle of the presidio Heights neighborhood in San Francisco. Though police arrived at the scene within minutes and three witnesses saw the shooting take place the Zodiac somehow managed to escape of feet he'd frequently rubbed in the faces of the SF PD. Authorities felt powerless and frustrated. The killer made it clear that he considered investigators incompetent and now he was so arrogant that he was willing to offer them clues even a puzzle which might reveal his identity of course. It's likely that the cipher wasn't a legitimate puzzle at all but the effect was just as maddening and over the years amateur and professional cryptology sts alike. Did their best to crack the code. One of the more popular suggested solutions to the cipher was the name. Alfred E. Neuman the Mascot for the Popular mad magazine. The name not only fit within the code but also matched the Zodiacs absurdist sense of humor. Unfortunately it meant that the cipher provided no clues about who the Zodiac really was With the cipher looking like a dead end authorities turned their attention to another section of the name letter Zodiac mentioned that he'd been swamped out by the recent rain. Police seized on the killers phrasing and began investigating low lying areas in the city searching for places that were vulnerable to flooding. It was an ingenious idea but unfortunately failed to turn up anything helpful it seemed like the Zodiac was always one step ahead of the police for all they knew the entire story about the rain had been fabricated as the months wore on. That explanation looked increasingly likely as it turned out the Zodiac never committed any more confirmed murders after the October nineteen sixty nine killing of Paul Stein though. He claimed additional victims in his subsequent letters to the press it seemed more likely that the Zodiac had changed tactics entirely he's still sought to spread terror and become infamous but he found he could accomplish his goals more easily by simply making threats and tantalizing investigators with his letters ultimately however his new strategy had limited success after repeatedly threatening to detonate a bomb but never following through people stopped feeling so afraid his threats became hollow and eventually the Zodiac stopped his campaign of terror entirely five months after the name letter in September nineteen seventy the Zodiac went silent for three years though. He undeniably outfox police. The Zodiac also overplayed his hand with the name letter it marked one of his final credible threats but ultimately it was nothing more than a smokescreen the last gasp of a killer.

Class is a production of I heart radio. Hi eve's. Welcome to this day in history. Class a show that reveals a little bit more about history. Day-by-day today is April twentieth. Twenty nineteen. the day was April. Twentieth. Nineteen sixty eight. British member of parliament, e not Powell gave a speech to a conservative association meeting in Birmingham England that became known as the rivers of blood speech. Powell a conservative MP for the Wolverhampton south west constituency used the speech to spouse his opposition to mass immigration. He argued that so-called ordinary English people were becoming a persecuted minority in strangers in their own country. And he said that for immigrants integration was difficult. If not impossible how will proposed ending almost all immigration into Britain and encouraging immigrants already there to leave voluntarily needless to say, the speech was and remains controversial. By the time Powell gave his speech, hundreds of thousands of people from the Commonwealth of nations countries have moved to Britain. This was largely due to the British nationality. Act nineteen forty eight which created the new status a citizen of the United Kingdom and colonies that apply to people who were born or naturalized in the UK or it's calling me. These people were permitted to live and work in the UK without a visa which led to a rapid increase in immigration in the UK over the next two decades. British lay people and government officials began to object to the large number of migrants and express their desire to bar new immigrants and to send immigrants already they're back out of the UK. In nineteen fifty a cabinet committee. Forums to figure out quote ways, which might be adopted to check the immigration into this country of colored people from British colonial. Territories. After that committee found that no restrictions on immigration where required the issue was tossed around without any real conclusion for several years, but in nineteen sixty two Harlem it passed the Commonwealth immigrants act, which tighten regulations on the immigration of all Commonwealth passport-holders, according to the act Commonwealth immigrants head to apply for work about your grade it based on their employment prospects to be able to settle in the UK in nineteen sixty five the government reduced the number of hours available after Asians from Kenya. And Uganda began to immigrate to Britain in nineteen sixty seven enough Powell and other conservatives started campaigning for more restrictions on immigration parliament soon passed the Commonwealth immigrants act nineteen sixty eight which further restricted immigration to the UK for citizens of the Commonwealth of nations countries to have automatic right of entry into the UK the person or at. Least one of his parents or grandparents had to be born naturalized or adopted in the UK or had to have come a citizen by registration under the British nationality. Acts. It was in a climate divided over the issue of immigration that Powell gave his rivers of blood speech. In it. He criticized the race relations Bill going through parliament that would make it illegal to refuse housing employment or public services to people based on color race, ethnicity or nationality. He argued that in a couple of decades or less, quote, the black man will have the weapon over the white, man. He gave an anecdote about one of his constituents a white woman who was harassed by so called grinning pekingese, and he pointed to the race riots and violence during the civil rights movement as an example of what would happen in the UK if they stayed on the same path of immigration race relations Powell fit in the speech, it almost passes belief that at this moment twenty or thirty additional immigrant children are arriving from overseas and Wolverhampton alone every week, and that means fifteen or twenty additional families a decade or two hints those home the gods wished to destroy. They I make mad. We must be mad literally mad as a nation to be permitting. The annual inflow of some fifty thousand dependence who are for the most part the material of the future growth of the immigrant descended population. It is like watching a nation busily engaged in heaping up its own funeral pyre. Nowhere in the speech. Tip house, say the phrase rivers of blood, but near the end of the speech. He did say the following as I look ahead. I am filled with forboding like the Roman. I seem to see the river Tiber foaming with much blood. This allusion to Virgils epic poem aeneid is weird. The nickname for the speech comes from. During his speech in after it was finished. How was applauded after Powell gave the speech people came out in support of repatriating immigrants while others denounced, his racism. After he gave his speech conservative leader, Ted heath dismissed him from the conservative shadow cabinet, and eventually he left the conservative party and became an Ulster Unionist. House suggestions to restrict immigration did not lead to any major anti immigration policy changes, but his anti-immigrant views were popular at the time. And the phrase e knock was right games.

Also known as the CO ED killer Kemper would go on to kill five more victims before he was finally apprehended. Welcome to today in true crime a podcast original due to the graphic nature of today's crimes. Listener discretion is advised extreme caution is advised for listeners under thirteen. Today recovering the murder of fifteen year old I, Co Koo. Let's go back to Berkeley California just as the sun began to set. I co-, paste in front of the bus station checking her watch her dance class had already begun and she hated being late her single mother worked overtime to be able to send her at each missed class was like a dagger to her heart. She had to make it as quickly as possible after a few more minutes I co- decided she was done waiting even though her mother had advised against it, she stuck out her thumb and started walking along the side of the road. She, didn't have to wait long before a car pulled up, assigned her a man with large glasses and a thick moustache roll down the window. He looked extraordinarily tall. I co had no idea how he'd crammed into the tiny vehicle but though his stature was intimidating his voice was calm and friendly. After hesitating for just a moment, I go hopped inside the car. She told him. She was going to San Francisco and he agreed to take her the whole way. While, they drove the man started talking he introduced himself as ED and quickly drew I co into a pleasant conversation. He was so friendly that I go almost didn't notice that they'd somehow gotten turned around. They were going north when they should have been headed south. I go mentioned the mistake to Ed and he grew silent as he sat in the driver's seat completely in control I suddenly realized the danger she was in. Tears filled her eyes and she begged Ed not to harm her at this ed reached below his seat pulled out a three, fifty, seven magnum and the gun into her ribs he told her to be quiet. He pulled the car down a side road. Then into a secluded section of the forest as the car stopped, he explained himself he claimed he was suicidal. He had picked I co OP intending to kill her and then kill himself. So he didn't have to die alone but after talking to her she was so nice. He couldn't hurt her he wouldn't hurt her. He just wanted someone to talk to. I Co was stunned the man in front of her was terrifying but he was also clearly sad she knew what that was like. She was happy to let him talk. The two of them sat in the car for some time as the giant man on boated his feelings, the young girl listened with sympathy sometimes even reaching out to pat his back the more he talked the safer she felt, but she felt too safe for for her own good. When ed finished talking he suggested that Aiko let him tie her up and put her in the trunk. He said he would take her home. He just didn't want to get in trouble it would be better if the police couldn't see him driving with a young girl because they would assume she had been kidnapped. I co thought about it for a second then. Read she would let ed tie her up. Ed step out of the car and opened the trunk pulling out the rope and duct tape. He came back to the front and pulled on the door, but it was locked. The keys were in the ignition. The gun was on the front seat Aiko was inside while I was outside for a brief moment, I co was nearly free. But Ed had opened up to her he made her feel safe. So she reached over to the driver's side door and pulled up the lock. Ed. Smiled. Coming up ED pounces.

On September Fourteenth Nineteen seventy-two fifteen-year-old Aiko Koo hit a ride with Ed Kemper the notorious coed killer despite pulling a gun on Aiko and convinced the girl that he had no intention of hurting hurting her he was so convincing I let him back in the car after he accidentally locked himself out ed sat on the car seat relieved. He looked at Aiko for a moment. So young and trusting then he launched. It wasn't much of a fight and was six feet, nine inches tall and weighed over three hundred pounds. I co was a fifteen year old girl with his massive hands. Ed's strangled coast throat until she fell unconscious he then sexually assaulted. and. When she woke up, he strangled her again until she stopped breathing for good when I go was dead Ed placed her body in his trunk. Thrilled with the kill. He drove to one of his favourite bars to celebrate. He checked a second time to make sure she was dead before he went inside. Ed Drank Three Beers taking his time savouring the feeling. then. He went back outside and the trunk once more this time he all gold her corpse as he later put it like a fisherman admiring his catch. Ed drove back to his apartment that night and hauled Aiko's body upstairs there he took pornographic photos had sex with her corpse and spent four hours dismembering her body. He disposed of the mutilated parts by burying them in isolated locations in the Santa Cruz mountains but he left her head in his trunk as a memento even keeping it when he visited his court appointed psychiatrists at his very next appointment. Ed. Convinced his therapist that he was no longer a threat to society. He was an expert manipulator I co-. Coups body was never found. She was Ed Campers fifth victim and she was far from his last. On January seventh nineteen, seventy-three Ed Kemper killed. Year old college student Cindy Schall a month. Later he picked up a twenty three year old woman named Rosalind Thorpe along with her twenty year old friend Alison Lou. He shot both women, and later dissecting their corpses finally on April Twentieth Nineteen seventy-three ed killed the ultimate source of his rage, his own mother. He mutilated her body like the others going so far as to remove her vocal cords and put them in the garbage disposal. It was a symbolic act punishing her for the nagging voice that had plagued him since he was a young child. That same night he invited his mother's closest friend over fifty nine year old Sarah Hallett to surprise his mother. The real surprise was for Sarah who ended up being Ed's tenth victim. After Sarah was dead, Ed went on the run driving three days across secluded back roads talking the way to Colorado. But soon, he decided that he wasn't cut out for a life on the Lam and turned himself in to the police. It was perhaps a bit anticlimactic, but it officially marked the end of the co Ed killers reign of Terror Ed was deemed criminally insane found guilty on eight counts of murder and sentenced to life in a maximum security mental health facility where he stays to this day.

"You've heard the music now. Here's the story from director frank marshall. Hbo's new documentary the bg's how can you mend a broken heart. Chronicles the highs and lows of brothers berry maurice and robin gibb and the evolution of the prolific career as the bg's through interviews and never before seen footage discover how they navigated the ever changing music industry and complex dynamics of family and fame. Watch it now on hbo and hbo. Max this is the. I'm in love with that song. Podcast and i am your host brad. Page each episode of the show. I pick one of my favorite songs and we take a look at it. i'm not talking about clinical dissection of the song. We're not getting into music theory here. We're just looking at how the song was put together how it was performed and recorded. What was the history where came from on this episode. We're helping ourselves to a slice of humble pie with a song called thunder box. The idea of the supergroup became a thing in the late sixties. The first supergroup was probably cream in nineteen sixty six and soon there were a whole bunch of some more super than others. Humble pie was one of the early. British super groups formed in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. When steve mariot left the small faces to start a new band with peter frampton who had just left his band called the heard they were both tired of being marketed as teen idols and wanted to be seen as serious musicians. They recruited greg ridley. Who was playing bass for spooky tooth and one relative newcomer a seventeen year. Old drummer named jerry shirley. They released their debut album in august nineteen. Sixty-nine it's a mix of blues rock and acoustic tracks. Interestingly this is one of the first probably not the first but one of the first albums to be referred to as heavy metal. It was in a review in rolling stone magazine. That heavy metal was one of the terms. Used to describe this album though. Nobody today would listen to this album and think of it as heavy metal. A second album followed that was more acoustic than the first and to be honest. I'm not really a big fan of those first two albums but they were exploring trying to find their sound. It wasn't until their fourth album called rock on that they really hit on a winning formula. Then good now have seen some people eight to trade on your feet. No conscience campy. Seen how do brick walls into next day released a live album called performance rockin the fillmore in november nineteen seventy one and that was their breakthrough album becoming their first gold record. Been a pass. And then peter frampton quit. He was replaced by clem clemson from the band coliseum with climb in the band they continue to move in a heavier direction and steve mariot moved firmly into the spotlight next. They recorded an album called smokin which was their biggest hit yet but it also turned out to be their commercial peak God that stephen still singing the background vocals on that track hot nasty though they had a solid fan base and sold a decent amount of records. They couldn't compete with bands like led zeppelin and their record. Company am records was getting frustrated. Humble pie responded with a massive double album that was all over the place. one side was all original material. One side was all classic. R&b songs side three was more acoustic stuff and side. Four was a full on rock in live concert recording laugh not a thing only pay us whereas don we talked about steve mary on this podcast before back in episode fifty four on the small faces and tin soldier despite being short white. British kid steve. Mary loved rb music and could belt out a soulful vocal like he always wanted to have a group of female backing singers in the band. And around this time he finally got his wish. Veneta fields cloudy king and shirley matthews who was later replaced by billie barnum became the blackberries and joined humble pie in the studio and on stage and these women were legit veneta fields worked with tina turner recorded with pink floyd and the rolling stones just to name a few cloudy king had been a member of the rae. Let's with ray charles. And would go into work with bob dylan and elton john. These singers were the real deal. Unfortunately that double album fell short of the commercial success of their previous albums so under pressure the band returned to the studio to make their next record. They ended up with twelve tracks. Only four of them were originals. arrest recovers. it seemed like the band was running out of steam. And let's face it. The drugs and the alcohol were definitely taking a toll. They released an album in february. Nineteen seventy four. It was called thunder box. Thunder box is a slang term from the seventeenth century for a toilet. That gives some idea where the band's heads were at and their sense of humor. The album cover was a wooden door with a die. Cut keyhole that. You could peek through to see well. You figured out. It may be inappropriate and immature. But it's one of my all time. Favorite record covers the song. Thunder box is the first song on the album and opens the record with the kind guitar. Riff that i am an absolute sucker for a few seconds of that. Riff and i am hooked. Then you add those backing vocals by the blackberries. And i'm all in and there's a cowbell because it would be a crime not to put a cowbell here. There's a quick keychains higher which ups the ante. And then steve mariot says. Wait a minute and starts wailing on the harmonica. It is double tracking his vocal here. He's not trying to duplicate the parts. Exactly he's allowing for variation for effect now that part there there's a shift in the groove previously. The was on the back beats of two and four one to four one two four in this section. The emphasis has switched to beats one and three one three one three it switches back and forth between those two groups which really gives it a great feel. Let's listen to that whole section. Someone's playing a shaker here. Notice how the backing vocals following the guitar part here. I loved his harmonica. Lick here by combat and checkout greg. Ridley on the base here. Here's a great guitarist. And a great vocal by marian listen to the beat. Jerry surely is laying down especially his snare drum work listened to the blackberries doing their thing and notice. How the shaker comes up in the mix just for this little section greg ridley's basis great through this whole part the blackberries backing vocals who really what makes the section work and i love the way. The whole ban works disprove right to the end the bass and drums backing vocals. The harmonica on this is what a great band sounds. Kim thunder box spy humble pie. The album of the same name was a steph. Didn't even reach the top fifty and sank into obscurity. The band was spent creatively and financially and when they took some time off to figure out their next move their manager and record company literally stole a bunch of demos in rough tracks from mariot studio and released it as a half assed album called street rats. Without the band's input that album was a commercial disaster. The band hated the record. And it ended up being a final nail in the coffin. For humble pie they broke up soon after the years. That followed were tough. Steve mariot new bands and old reunions came and went but nothing caught on. Mariot spent most of the nineteen eighties in relative obscurity. Former humble pie member. Peter frampton became massively successful of course but by the eighties his star faded to in nineteen ninety. Frampton reached out to marry to see if he'd be interested in working together. It had been almost twenty years since they went their separate ways but when they reconnected it clicked right away. They wrote a new song together on their first day. Back mariot joined frampton l. a. to continue writing. Put a band together and get a record deal. Everything was falling into place on april twentieth. Nineteen ninety-one married and his wife flew back to england to wrap up a few things. They arrived home jetlagged and exhausted but excited about the prospects. They invited a friend to dinner to celebrate than they went back to his place after eventually they were too tired party anymore and crashed his place but then mary it woke up and wanted to go home to sleep in his own bed so he left his wife behind. Took a cab home. He settled into his own bed with a drink and a cigarette. He passed out and then awoke to find the room on fire with the smoke filling his lungs he frantically tried to escape but in a days he opened the wrong door and stumbled into a closet by mistake and collapsed. That's where the firemen found his body. The fire was caused by that last cigarette. St mary was forty four years old. Greg ridley died from pneumonia in two thousand and three at the age of fifty six. But clemson jerry shirley and peter frampton are still alive today around my desk where i record this podcast are a few mementos that i like to keep around. One of them is an old promotional photograph of humble pie in the blackberries taken around. The time of this album hadn't quite fallen apart for humble pie at that point though the problems were there but times were good in this picture for long haired white guys. Three black women embracing and mugging for the camera. This looks like the band that you want to be in. That'll do it for this episode of the i'm in love with that song podcast.

How World War II shaped John Paul Stevenss approach to the death penalty

The Daily 202's Big Idea

How World War II shaped John Paul Stevenss approach to the death penalty

"<music> good morning. I'm James From The Washington Post and this is the daily to for Wednesday July seventeen in today's news the House votes to condemn President Trump's racist tweets. The uproar has derailed the roll out of the administration's new immigration plan and planned parenthood ousts. It's president after less than a year on the job but I in the big idea. Former Supreme Court justice. John Paul Stevens died last night at a hospital in Fort Lauderdale Florida. He was ninety nine a moderate Republican from Chicago. He evolved into the leader of the courts liberal wing over thirty five years on the High Court before retiring in two thousand ten is the third longest serving justice ever justice Stevens left his stamp on nearly every area of the law writing the courts opinions in landmark cases on government regulation gave us the Chevron Doctrine Karen Intellectual Property and civil liberties the also spoke for the court when it held presidents accountable under the law writing the nineteen ninety-seven decision that required Bill Clinton to face Paula Jones's sexual harassment suit and the two thousand six opinion that Bar George W Bush from holding military trials for prisoners at Guantanamo Bay without congressional authorization Stevens was bored in Chicago on April Twentieth Nineteen Twenty. His family lived in Hyde Park right next to the University of Chicago. His grandfather jeans Stevens was the founder of the Illinois Life Insurance Company and owned the Lasalle Hotel which the justices Father Ernest managed in one thousand nine twenty-seven the family opened the Stevens Hotel in Chicago August which was billed as the largest hotel in the world at that time John Paul enjoyed a privileged childhood he attended the best schools he met celebrities like Charles Lindbergh and Amelia earhart at the hotel and he was lucky enough to be the in the crowd at Wrigley Field on October first one thousand nine hundred thirty two when Babe Ruth hit his famous called shot homerun off cubs pitcher Charlie route but the Stevens businesses that that made them so affluent went bankrupt during the Great Depression and Justice Stevens his father his grandfather and his uncle remain Stevens were all indicted on charges of alleged financial misconduct shortly after the indictment James Stevens wins had a stroke so he was excused from trial Raymond Stevens committed suicide. A jury convicted Ernest Evens Nineteen thirty-three of embezzling one point three million dollars but his conviction was overturned in nineteen thirty four by the Illinois Supreme Court. Which sharply criticized prosecutors for bringing the charges noting that there was not a Scintilla of evidence of any concealment or fraud attempted the family had always said they just take had taken a loan from the Life Insurance Company to support the hotel but the experience reduced the wealthy family to a lower middle class lifestyle it also taught justice Stevens an enduring lesson they brought with him to the bench about the harm that even well-to-do you citizens can suffer from over zealous prosecution and other flaws in our justice system his experience during World War Two also really shaped his worldview and eventually his jurisprudence he joined the navy is an intelligence since officer on December sixth nineteen forty one? That's right the day before Pearl Harbor was attacked. He liked to joke in later years that his commissioning had provoked the Japanese to strike because they took it as a sign of American desperation he spent the War at Pearl Harbor working as a signals intelligence officer. His specialty was traffic analysis the compilation of Japanese messages to discern patterns in communication that might help identify relocate and enforces. He was awarded the Bronze Star for Helping Dakota the code a particularly difficult Japanese radio call sign his work allowed us to shoot down Japanese Admiral Seroku Yamamoto's airplane. This strategic coup was only possible because Stevens had decoded Japanese radio transmissions that had been intercepted but the targeting killing of Yamamoto really troubled a young Stevens he explained a few years ago that so his first doubts about capital punishment which he considered another form form of deliberate killing by the state of named individual when Gerald Ford I put Stevens on the court he was pretty conservative. INDEEDY CAST A fifth vote to permit states to reauthorize the death penalty just four years after the court had invalidated invalidated it but as the country the court and the Republican Party moved right justice Stevens did not he began to take a more favourable view of affirmative action and he started fighting the limit the scope of the death penalty citing his World War Two experience in two thousand and to justice Stevens wrote the majority opinion in a six to three decision that banned the death penalty for the mentally disabled in two thousand five after years of condemning the death penalty for offenders younger than eighteen which the court upheld in nineteen eighty nine justice Stevens persuaded Anthony Kennedy he won Kennedy's vote The critical fifth vote for his side and capital punishment for minors is no longer allowed in this country today. As a result and that's the big idea here are three other headlines. That should be on your radar. This Hump Day number one divided House voted last night to condemn president trump's racist remarks telling for minority congresswoman to go back to their ancestral countries with all but four Republicans dismissing the rebuke is harassment while many Democrats pushed their leadership for harsher punishment of the president the imagery of the two hundred at forty one hundred eighty seven vote was stark a diverse democratic caucus cast the president's words as an affront to millions of Americans and descendants of immigrants will republican lawmakers the vast majority of them white men stood with trump against a resolution rejected as quote racist comments that legitimised fear and hatred of new Americans and people of Color. All four of the Republicans who broke ranks. Maybe gone after next year will heard from Texas is the loan black Republican in the house. He represents hundreds hundreds of miles of the southern border and trump lost his district by huge margin in two thousand sixteen and we'll do so again in twenty twenty. He barely survive by a few hundred votes in two thousand Eighteen Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania considered one of the most vulnerable incumbents up for reelection next year and the philly suburbs suburbs. Susan Brooks of Indiana's already announced her retirement and many expect Fred Upton of Michigan to retire as well Justin Amash from western Michigan quit the G._O._p.. Earlier this month and it's called for trump's impeachment also voted for the resolution the debate played out on a Raucous House floor. Islamic attacked one another's motives and repeatedly questioned whether their opponents had violated longstanding rules of decorum those rules ultimately were changed. They literally changed the rules. After Republicans challenged Speaker Nancy NC Pelosi's use of the word racist well Democrats United Behind the resolution that passed they were unanimous and supporting it many of her rank and file members said they want Pelosi to do more dozens signed onto way censure resolution that was filed by Steve Cohen from Tennessee who called trump's comments uproarious and deserving of a more serious rebuke authority or possibility though for Pelosi came from Al Green from Texas he filed articles of impeachment against trump last night under special procedures that could bring them up for a vote by the end of the week. That's a dilemma for Pelosi continues to resist calls for impeaching trump since the Senate won't take anything up senior Democratic AIDS expect back the speaker will move to either kill the resolution referred to committee effectively sidelining the matter but either option would pose a difficult vote for her caucus of which more than eighty members have supported launching an impeachment inquiry number two. That floor fight last night in the house over the racism resolution forced the cancellation of meeting at the White House in which the president was going to talk with top Republican congressional leaders about his new immigration plan senior Republicans in the Senate on Tuesday immediately began downplaying downplay the prospects of the new White House proposal an effort.

It's not funny but sometimes you have to laugh so you don't cry right so massive effort to salvage. The ship is focused on dredging sand from below both the bow and stern of the ship before pooling ship with tugboats apparently there was some concern to Not because of the shifting wait just because of the weight Being different given the fact that it had run aground and was offered in on either side of the suez canal there was some concern that once.

Twenty twenty this program is a healing retreat for survivors of mass shootings and currently septic accepting applications for its august. Twenty twenty one retreat at no cost to anyone that was in any way impacted by this horrific of that crystal woodman miller knows firsthand that the healing from this kind of trauma it takes time. She said if there was a manual that existed on how to walk through trauma how we walk through suffering. It really wouldn't apply because each and every one of us deals with sub suffering in a unique way we all process it differently. She wrote just an incredibly compelling ladder that i wanted to share with you this morning. Here's what she said dear fellow survivor twenty two years ago when i survived the shootings at columbine high school there were very few words or sentiments that could bring comfort or solace. That is still true. Today words falls significantly short. We feel small feel trite however she wrote. I feel compelled to at least try to convey some of the comfort. I wish was shared with me some twenty two years ago when columbine happened people would often ask why i shared my story. She writes. I would express how desperate i was to prevent mass shootings. Because i never wanted another person to experience the pain and suffering my friends my classmates my community. Yeah i myself did on april twentieth. Nineteen ninety nine am deeply. Sorry she said that. I have failed you that we failed you. I'm so sorry tragedies like yours have become so commonplace. I wish i could erase the grief and sorrow that. Have now become part of your story. This is not the way it is supposed to be. I want you to know that you are not alone. This is in a letter from crystal woodman miller survivor of the columbine massacre april twentieth nineteen thousand nine hundred ninety nine. You are now a part of a club. She says that you never asked or wished to be a part of in this club. You are known you are seeing you are heard and you are valued. Your story matters greatly in this club. You are accepted and you belong. You are safe safe to be you in this club. You have permission and space to feel and process your individual emotions. We're not uncomfortable or scared by the intensity of those feelings because we as mass shooting survivors. We have felt them to. In fact your thoughts feelings and emotions are completely normal. They don't make you strange broken or weird in this club. You get to heal a pace. That feels safe and healthy for you. There are no expectations to move faster slower and your healing journey. Let your process take as long as it needs yet in. This club will also support and encourage you to utilize the tools and resources at disposal to face navigate and move through your trauma to find healing strength and yes purpose on the other side because you will find. You are not just a survivor. You aren't over comer in this club. Hope can become your reality. Hope she writes you see is a choice one day whether you believe it now or not one day. You will have the opportunity to make that choice. You may be numb with shock in the chaos of this moment. I know that through though the immediate dangerous past you know no longer feel safe. You're innocent sin. Security has been stolen what what's like she says to continually replayed the event over and over and over again in your head. I know the inability to shake the sights and the sounds. I know the crippling guilt and shame the unanswerable questions of why and the second guessing of your response. I know the nightmares that haunt your sleep. I know the loneliness you feel even in a room full of people. I know what it like what it feels like to be used and abused by the media. I know how overwhelming it is to experience every emotion and yet somehow feel absolutely nothing at all. I know the tears wanted shed yet. They run dry. I know the disbelief and confusion of staring at an ever growing makeshift memorial. I know the grief that makes your soul aac another way to fear. I know the anger. I know you feel as if this song bank crush you. At any moment. I know it feels impossible. Rights crystal crystal. Woodman miller again. Ah columbine survivor. But i promise she says this is not the end. Hope is patient. Hope will wait and hope will bear you up and carry you. Steadily forward hope is a lifeline. That can steady an anger. You against him. I know this she says. Because i chose hope and slowly. Miraculously things began to change in me. Fear was replaced with courage and zayed's with peace bitterness with forgiveness to spare with joy and negatively with gratitude but hopes. She says it's not found in a system or an institution it can't be bought sold or traded it's not in a government it's laws policies or even reform if anything we need heart reform for me right crystal hope found in a savior in the person of jesus christ for you hope maybe found elsewhere in anything then yourself and no matter where you find hope you must be willing to look for it. Hope begins with us. It ripples out into our homes are places of work on and indeed our communities hope grows and unfurled us when we open ourselves to the possibility to live again to see each and every moment each breath as a precious gift hope is extended when we stop fighting against one another and to begin instead to fight for one another when we remember that each person become in contact with has a unique story and is facing their own very personal battle. We offer grace love and honor says crystal wooden and miller. There's so much more. I want to say to you. But i will end here except to offer this for those asking. If it ever gets easier. I say it does not should not ever get easier to witness death and violence. We could not be desensitized to that instead.

Dead trees green. I see them blue ink to myself own no sees guy. This is rumble. and i'm michael moore. Welcome everyone. it's been another one of those weaknesses coming back after launch april twentieth. Nineteen ninety nine into our production studio. We were making the very first season of our tv series. The awful truth and on the tv set in the sort of ping pong room that sat by the front door. The tv was on and there was the back then. The term that rarely was used breaking news. Columbine high littleton colorado on the edge of denver. It has been a horror that somebody or somebody's inside of columbine high school in littleton colorado had gone in and shot up the school and the police who of young swat teams and decided to not go into the school because they didn't know who or what was in there and what kind of firepower they had and so they remained outside for at least two hours. Maybe some say close to three Of course back then. We didn't have mass shootings like that was something that was fairly new. It's not that we hadn't had mass shootings in our history and it's not that There hasn't been a lot of death and destruction here in the united states of america over the years back in the late nineteen twenties near flint Small town bath michigan. Where the treasurer. The school board was upset with some other people on the board were accusing him of some sort of malfeasance with the funds so the school district at that time you had these one room schoolhouses except this was a very large school house. It was more than one room and all the students in the entire school district went to school in this one schoolhouse in bath and the very upset. Very angry treasurer of the school board had gone in there the night before planted a bunch of dynamite Throughout the basement of the school and the next morning once the kids and the teachers were all in their blood up. Sn nineteen twenties. Blew it up and Host fifty students and teachers died so that was the largest school massacre in one. Thousand nine hundred. Eighty seven in a bath michigan until Columbine columbine twelve students in one teacher im- plus the the two students who were the killers died there but the bath bath massacre had long been forgotten. My grandfather was present there in the hours after the massacre at bath michigan in nineteen twenty seven. He was a country. Doctor is what they call them back. Then it a year of medical school and they put a call out to all the doctors in the area to please come to bath. And so doctors from probably a fifty mile radius Got to bath michigan with a couple of hours. People suffering and children bleeding in addition to the thirty eight were killed There another fifty eight. Who were injured limbs hanging from young kids. You know there weren't ambulances like the way we know them now there was there. Weren't you know the nearest hospital back. Then was far away so that the the doctors arrived my grandfather ride arrived in saw. The horror of the scene immediately went to work Triaging and trying to who needed their help. I and his help and trying to you know a lot of them have blood out probably by then he did the best they could do to keep the others alive and to treat them with limited medicines and things that were available in nineteen twenty seven. And you know the story was passed down to us Screen kids And so we always kind of knew about this and never we drove through bathroom. Always kind of a as little kids. You kind of a creepy feeling but columbine happened on april twentieth nineteen ninety nine and it shocked the nation and it shocked the world. There had never been a shooting like this before at an american high school. Not to this level mean obviously been shootings at schools through the years. You know sadly but not this. Not this. And i stood there in front of the television set by the ping pong table in our production offices and i was just. I couldn't take my eyes off the tv. What kind of country do we live in. Who are we in my head these questions just to just burning through me sick sick sick of it. All i said to my fellow. He'll makers working on the show. The tv show standing there all of us watching this so we have to do something. I don't know what it is. I know we're in the middle of this tv show but we Wow yeah this is what we're capable of this kind of death and destruction. Of course we are and if we all don't rise up and do something about this. This is going to happen again and again and again. 'cause this is who we are really at our core violence guns. It's just usually where you still doing it to other people whether it's the massacre of native peoples to take over this land the violence against africans forcing them to come here in chains and build this country us on our. We had a long long history of this and of invading other countries. Who weren't doing our will. I said i don't know. I know we gotta get to work here today. But we've got to do something about this. And i called up the canadian producers of the show One of whom was having to having is going to be in new york a couple of days and made a plan to have launched with them and sat down with them on the corner of eighty fifth and broadway in new york city. And i said listen. I know we're we're in the middle of this tv series. Put this this is this is. We have to stop this right now. If the nip this right in the bud we need to make a movie. I don't know what's going to say. You're do or be or whatever but in before i got the next sentence automatically goes done. We'll fund it. Michael donovan this guy. From nova scotia will fund it. And he told me how you know. Obviously canadians have been watching us for a long time. Quite figuring out why we are the way we are and i thanked him and Very quickly we got to work on a film that would take three years to make because in the middle of nine eleven happened. We had to do our series for the two years we were contracted to do it. We also spent decent amount of time in the denver area over that over those years filming interviewing talking to people running into marilyn manson. Who was blamed for these kids committing this atrocity and So i got a lot of people. In denver in littleton. Rami area really saw what they the pain that he went through. We're still going through in as we know now The mass killings continued in the years after most notably at the multiplex the movie theater in aurora Which is littleton is sort of south south south suburb of denver words to the To the east but all around each other all kind of interconnected there in then and then this week.

Kobe shot their vaccine at the pharmacy inside the market and goes right to the front of the line and kills the woman and said the front of the line and continues his rampage now throughout the store. Ten people dead but he doesn't i he's in a bit a little bit of a gun shootout with the police when they when they got there in. The first officer of course was killed. God bless him just ran right in to try and save lives lost his on but they didn't kill him i think they sh- there was a bullet that went through his leg. Didn't hit anything serious. And they took them out. Put him in the ambulance to the hospital. Arrested him and here. We are once again. My friends just seven days before this guy goes in to three different spas in the atlanta and kills eight people six of them asian women aged americans and again he is not killed. He's captured but what hasn't really been covered much. I'm only. I've only really seen it on. Cnn is the fact that in the seven days between atlanta in boulder. There were a total of seven mass shootings. We call a mass shootings defined by law enforcement the Shooting four or more people not not counting the perpetrator so for people are shot and injured or killed that makes. That's the definition of person. That's a mass lane. We've had seven of those in seven days between atlanta and boulder. That's who we are. All over the country. Philly san francisco there was one down in orlando violence. We are such violent people. And yet i just want to say this because in making bowling for columbine we decided that of course the solution to all this is going to be gun control and if we just have more loss trying to limit the guns being in the hands of the wrong people. That would fix our problem. That's how we started out making the film and we thought it'd be interesting to go to canada. Having grown up on the border in michigan with the canadians wondering why didn't they have the same problem we have and so There's a there's an office in ottawa. that's their capital. called canada's statistics or statistics canada. I forget it. I know it's in english or french. One we're comes before the other there. We discovered a very interesting statistic about the canadians. They're seven million guns in canada over thirty million people with seven million. That's i mean that's a it's a hell of a ratio. I mean it's that quite ours. We're usually one to one here. You know if we have three hundred million people they think there's about three hundred million guns in the country. Now we have three hundred and thirty million and they're saying there's three hundred and fifty million guns in this country but seven million guns in canada when you think about that. They're i think. The statistics said that there were approximately eight million households in canada. That's almost a gun per household if you averaged it out that way and we couldn't believe it we like you know. I thought they had gun control up here. Of course it was explained to us that hunting is the number one sport in canada. More people participate hunting them. Play hockey really. Our minds are being blown by this right. We can't even believe what we're hearing and with all these guns and yes they have. They have good gun. Laws you. It's very hard to get a handgun in canada. You can go to a sporting range and shoot handguns. The you can use it there for the afternoon but very hard to get a handgun but hunting rifles. You know you still have to register it and you have to go through if to prove you know how to use it. You've got to commit to locking it up so the kids can't get things like that but still there. There were all these guns in canada and hardly any gun murders at that time there over eleven thousand gun murders in the us and there were one hundred sixty five in canada. So you can do the math or you can see that. There's something wrong. Why aren't the canadians killing more of each other. Why aren't they more. like us. Seem like us if they watch the same violent movies and same violent. Tv shows as we watching You know the culture. I mean the culture's different. If you live on the border you know that but nonetheless. The culture is also very similar. They just don't reach for the gun when they get upset. So that changed the whole focus of the film. And i'm going to have with me here very shortly. One of the parents of the students who were killed at columbine he's in the movie bowling for columbine. That was the movie we set out to making spent three years making it and they miss tom mauser. We had a lot of respect and still do for him the tragedy that he and his family suffered through and he became an activist on this issue. I talked to him in a number of years. Now i'm sorry that the events in colorado the weaker now going to bring us back together on this podcast but before he joins us. I just want to say a few things because the solution here is not what we think it is and we made this point in the film. There's something wrong with us. As americans we started to explore that us the film. Now let me just jump in and interrupt myself here and tell you that in many ways what is wrong with us isn't what it appears to be for instance. According to the washington post we are far from being a nation of gun. Nuts because seventy eight percent of us do not own a gun. Seventy eight percent of all americans don't have a single goddamn weapon. Twenty two percent have guns and the vast majority of them are hunters. Her people use them for sport. There's there are those. Obviously who feel that. They need it for soft protection in the same washington. Post article pointed out though. And here's the scary part of this statistic that half of all the guns in this country so let's say that let's say there's three hundred million guns on this country just to do the math. Three hundred million guns. In the united states of america one hundred and fifty million of them are owned by just three percent of our population. So seventy eight percent of us. Don't own a gun but three percent of us own a hundred and fifty million guns so do the math on three percent you know. These are adults obviously kids. But that's what seven eight million people one hundred and fifty million guns so that means on average each of these huge gun owners each own at least twenty guns. What if any twenty guns for and the the perpetrators the killers these these mass murders. They aren't always who you think they are. It's these aren't punks. The killer of children at sandy hook elementary in newtown colorado twenty children killed in six staff at that elementary school twenty children. Mostly all first graders about six years old. Who went in there and committed that crime gyns in his twenties. A guy some guy who just shot right through the doors and windows and enter that school. It's funny if the suspect is of different color of a different socio economic class. We weren't allowed that we hear a lot about it but the killer of twenty first graders was the son of the vice president of general electric. They never mentioned that in the paper. Why is that you know as much as we talk about in. You know this is there. Are there discussing this already in terms of what happened in boulder that the killer may have mental probable. of course. anybody would do this as a mental problem. I don't think that shouldn't we should just make that clear. But the right republicans in ra they really want to focus on this mental health issue and yes. We have a big mental health problem this country and we need to deal with it but this twenty something year old who killed the twenty. Six people had sandy hook. He had not one but two shrinks because he was on the gold plan. His father's his father's the vice president and general electric. He had the best frigging healthcare. Best health insurance anybody's going to have in the united states of america and even with a two shrinks wasn't enough. It's something else it's always something else and we want an easy answer. We wanna quickly and we don't ever really want to think. About what else could this be. I don't know. I don't know if we really do want to know the why the guy in the second half of the las vegas hotel killed fifty seven people and injured hundreds. He was a multimillionaire. Did you know that so multimillionaire. So it's now always exactly who you think. It is in their reasons for doing this. I don't always exactly clear. But i think i think if we're ever going to solve this problem that we need to look at this differently and we need to look for new solutions because the old way isn't working thoughts and prayers there. Let's let's close the loophole in the background checks. This is not going to fix our fundamental problem that we as americans have when it comes to the violence. That is our problem. And we hate to be debbie downer hair. Because i do try to. I am optimistic person. Obviously i wouldn't be doing all this if i didn't believe we could fix things and make it better but i have to tell you my friends. After this week of seven mass shootings the two large ones bookending. The week atlanta in boulder. Maybe this can't be fixed. Maybe this is just one of these things. We have to learn to live with because this is who we. Are you know you if you live in the lowlands of bangladesh. The annual monsoon season the waters rise half the country is below sea-level in thousands drown. And because the way the earth is there that they have to live with it they have to deal with it. They have to try to save their wives but doesn't always work. Maybe this is just are are curse. Maybe this is the human ecology it we have to live. This is our dna. This is america and get ready for the next mass shooting tomorrow the next day. Yeah sometimes it's it's four people in detroit. It's three people in milwaukee It's five people in seattle but there may not be affixed to this because we would ultimately have to fix ourselves. we'd all have to be a nation that was not inclined to use violence as a solution to a problem. We would have to be a country that had universal free healthcare. So that anybody who wasn't feeling well somebody who needed to check in to a hospital to see a psychiatrist psychologist. We're not that country. Our attitude is hey man. You can't afford it tough. Tough it out. pull yourself up by your bootstraps. We got obamacare. But that still leaves about thirty million people without health insurance so We're not we're not entirely committed to this and so somebody that needs help can't get help. Then we suffer the consequences and the next shooter goes into the next supermarket or the next pharmacy or the next library of the next school. The next church next black church suck it up live with it. that's america. i don't like saying that. And i don't wanna live in that country so we're going to have to figure something else out. Aren't we because he's damn republican certainly aren't going to pass anything. They're not gonna join with us on anything. We don't really need them. In joe biden and the democrats in the senate have any kind of guts they will bypass this filibuster. They will deal with it and get these laws passed that we need including this one all the other ones we need and the people who have all these guns love their guns and are afraid that we're going to take their guns away from them. They need they need to cool the fuck down. You're a hunter you like to shoot guns on. The range have added. Nobody wants your guns. But if you've got twenty guns or if you've got magazines that hold thirty fifty one hundred bullets. We'd like to talk to you about that to see what you're thinking here. You're a menace a potential venice. Because you don't need that kind of firepower for your own self defense and you certainly don't need it to kill bambi somehow someway. We're going to have to fix this but we may not be able to tell me that's not true. Tell me there's a way. Because we certainly and i'm telling you people listening to this podcast right now from around the world. They're just shaking their hands. Like you americans you just gonna keep doing this. You stopped doing it during the pandemic. Yeah and then all of a sudden when things start to get back to normal spring break is happening. Restaurants area opening and mass shootings are back because that is as american as apple pie and this poor this poor sick individual who killed these ten people twenty one years old. He was born on april seventeenth. Nineteen ninety nine three days before the columbine massacre in now some twenty one twenty two years later he walks in to a suburban denver supermarket in kills ten. He injures no one because that kind of gun. It's meant to kill in only kill shoots all those bullets and there's no injuries. Nobody ended up in the hospital. If he shot you. You ended up in the more. That kind of gun should not be allowed in civilian society. The police shouldn't have it. The citizens shouldn't have it and we can talk about the military some other time but my friends. This is insanity thinking about what i was gonna say in in. Do tonight on this podcast. I thought i need to talk to tom. Mauser i need to talk to the man who was really the conscience of bowling for columbine and so i said the basil do think like so notice and i'm sure he's having his own week dealing with us and thinking about his son lost his life at columbine mehlis kate let's give them a call and see if he he would come on and spend a few minutes with me And to any agreed to he said yes and And he's here in the days. And the weeks and the years since tom mousers fifteen year old son daniel was taken from him at the columbine high school massacre in april twentieth. Nineteen ninety nine. Tom mazar has spoken in. Marched in organized written gotten laws passed and sadly been called upon to comfort parents who have also lost their children in this most cruel american epidemic school shootings in addition to his tireless advocacy. He is a longtime public servant having worked for decades for the colorado department of public transportation. I just want to read you a quote from a scene in bowling for columbine. He spoke on the stage in front of the state capital in denver shortly after The combine killings he said to the people gathered. I am here today. Because my son daniel would want me to be here. Today is my son. Daniel was not one of the victims. He wouldn't be here with me today. Something is wrong in this country when a child grab a gun so easily and shoot a bullet into the middle of a child space as my son experienced. Something is wrong but the time has come to come to understand that a tech nine semi-automatic thirty bullet weapon like that killed. My son is not used to kill. Deer get has no useful purpose. It is time to address this problem and then in the film. I speak to tom and he says to me to start of the blue poses. A question to me that altered the direction not just of the film but of my way of looking at violence and specifically american violence in this. This is what time said to me that brings up an important question. Then what is so different about americans. Homicide will in nature because in europe. Australia most other free world countries. They don't have this. They don't have people who snap and go on murderous rampage. They have the occasional person that snaps and kills a lot of people or about a pretty soccer rattles waker. Every time that i bring up comparisons with other free world countries. I hear all our culture so different for so different and as you said they have island games. They have violent movies. They have alienated youth. They like us. Don't have prayer in schools. What is the radically different. What is it about what is it what is it what is it what is it. I don't know you know what somewhere in this question lies. Not just the answer but the solution. My sincere hope is that is true. We have now with us. mr. Tom mauser tom. How are you sir. Good oh you michael. I'm well you know. I'm sad and mad that i have to deal with this again again so tom first of all i mean. Just how. are you doing this week with us. I mean it's got a trigger all those feelings and seeing innocent people lose their lives. Yeah it does it it. Brings it back to you. Especially when i start doing a an interview with the media and talking about daniel. It's bigger some of that. Was you know it was especially difficult. Because i got a phone call from a friend whose daughter was in that store when it happened. They're good friends of ours and our daughters friends and she she didn't she wasn't shot but i know that she's going to be traumatized. And just as so. Many americans are by these senseless senseless things over over these last Twenty twenty two years. I mean you have devoted a good chunk of your life Speaking out against this trying to get laws passed around. Go around the country. Or see you on tv I mean you have been tireless and fearless on this issue in the in and standing up to the nra and to the gun lobby you have we have. We failed if we fail with this. If we 'cause is this ever really going to change. Is there just something in our dna. That won't let us be released from the grip of as americans that this is just a thing now. It's been a thing for at least a couple of decades and i. I'm out of ideas in the sense of what is it. We can do to see that. This happens as little as possible. Maybe never ever get rid of everything. But but you know i guess. I'm calling you tonight for some help here in the in the sense that I feel like i in my friends. We've given it a lot and and yet here we are talking about it again. More people dead in a nation confused asking. Why don't you ask the question. Have we failed while our generation has. We clearly have failed the following generations. It's really up to those generates not say that we don't keep trying to do something and we. We don't help them ask the question themselves but yeah we somewhat really failed and i i'm an optimist by nature otherwise. I guess i wouldn't be doing this. Otherwise i guess i'm a glutton for punishment but you know i'm i'm still asked as i have been this week. Well why are you shocked by. This is it. Is it's shocking to this is still going on my responses now. No i'm saddened by it and up shocked at its app but no. I'm not surprised by it because we really haven't done very much to deal with it. We haven't we really need the young generation in particular to say we've had enough of this. We don't wanna live like this. This has to change the cultural change. We really need serious serious cultural change if we wanna see anything improve cultural cultural. Meaning what makes us americans. I mean if it is somewhat in greater otherwise. Why would we have so much more of this happening than in nations. That are like us. It's a gun culture. It's i think it's a violent culture. I think it's also a culture that we're so individualized in this country. We don't look. We're not a nation of deals with a community very much. We were so much about the individual when what it is about me and not so. We don't really reach out to people very well. Bigger problem frankly is the day to day shootings not as much as raw shocked by the mass shootings. But they really make up. A smaller percentage of of the deaths. A lot of these are domestic the killing people that they know and i think i really think a lot of it is because we're not reaching out to the people who who who are the perpetrators you know these these people who were lost in life you're on your own buddy. You know we meet really aren't very good at at comforting other people in dealing with other other people who were troubled i and then we also i think have a cultural thing of of entitlement and revenge and getty app people people especially in the case of of domestic shootings and the mass shootings. These people are really mad at other people and they're gonna take them down with them not satisfied the end their own miserable lives. They have to take somebody with them. What is it about us. Your i go asking the question of. What is it about us. That has so many people like this. The behave this way. And think this way you would akao. I'll ask you the same question. I asked you twenty two years ago. What it is well i. I think it's entitlement. I think we have a lot of people. I think we see this other political ways of people who feel some entitlement to certain things and they don't like being told they can't have that so they have they have a miserable life. They've been bullied or they didn't get where they wanted to go. And they're mad as hell they're gonna take it out on somebody. I think the countries that that are more community minded and more concerned about the humidity nation as a whole. I don't think they have as many people like that. They don't have people who were disposed of in and I mean you could even argue. That that's happened in the political field. Know how we how we elected the last residents a lot of people who felt i don't like what the world has done the main I'm going to select someone who Who reflects that and who's new speaks for me There's something about this nation a. I'm not saying oh people were like that. Obviously the i'm suggesting that some of the people who turned violence are that way but we will. We don't have many system set up to help those people to deal with them. We tell them. Hey you're on your own. Something has happened since columbine and frankly. I didn't think i'd live to see the day that this would happen. But the nra the national rifle association in the last year or two has been neutered in many ways and they had the file for bankruptcy. They're coming apart at the seams. There are actually less members than there were before there. Are you know the use of guns is actually been going down and down and down each year in terms of number of hunters that you know just basic gun us is donald and i said before you come on here that it's now at a point where seventy eight percent of all americans do not own a gun so some progress i think has been made here and and our greatest foe here the nra the gun lobby. They're back on their heels and they are They are not doing well right now and this may be tom. I don't know maybe this is the moment. Maybe the window is opened. Maybe there's a chance you know. I heard the president united states yesterday say ban all assault weapons. Wow that was. That was a shock. I was surprised to hear that. Frankly democrats used to be frightened of the nra right. Remember that we remember back in the day you. You couldn't get you certainly couldn't get republicans to be on your side here but you couldn't get democrats. They were afraid to take a position. They thought that's the death of you at the at the polls if you come out against the that's gone now now the. Nra is the one that's frightened. The democrats are the last two elections congressional elections there. There's a great Statistic here of the the nra endorse candidates. Were the ones that were losing. The ones who didn't get the endorsement the nra they won. That's how the democrats were able to take over congress in two thousand eighteen. I don't see politicians putting ads out there anymore. You know walking. Like john kerry and walk into the fields with a gun shooting ducks and shoot deer shooting things but are they going to change their votes. No i'm i'm not convinced they are. They are still lockstep with the gun lobby. The nra may be weaker. Let the gun lobby. In general in the gun industry it is still an industry and indeed as you said they are They're seeing sales. Go down. I mean what what you see in sales now is a lot of people buying extra guns even more rather than you know individuals but but but those people are still going to vote down anything. They're gonna use the filibuster to defeat anything comes before the senate. Well then we have to get rid of the filibuster agree you know when it gets when it gets to the point. Where over ninety percent of americans support universal background checks. Strong background checks and mitch. Mcconnell can say no. We're not even going to hear it when he was in power and now he's not and not in majority but he'll use the filibuster to kill it to there. Is something seriously wrong in this country. When that's the way we run. Things is basically a tyranny by the minority and we can't let that happen that's not democracy. We have to use this particular case as as evidence number one why we have to get rid of the filibuster. Forget about the other issues. When ninety percent of americans can't get something that they want. There's something wrong you gotta change. Otherwise it's not a democracy. I mean this is. I'm glad you brought this up because this is if we could get rid of this hurdle if joe biden would come out forcefully against the filibuster just call it. What it is. It's not democracy. Democracy is majority rules fifty one votes in the senate. That's all you need. We've got him you know. And that's should be the end of that. And and if he's got some people like senator manchin senator cinema wavering. Jesus you're old enough to remember what you know back in the day. The linden johnson's and the tipple neal's and whatever they brought him in. Close the door fifteen minutes later. They walked out of the door. They're voting for the bill. Yeah well you also ask them. How do people in your state feel about. Universal background checks with ninety percent of americans. You can't tell me that in west virginia arizona it's only ten percent or even only forty percent. Now it's it's it's more than fifty percents a lot more than fifty percent. So why why. Why are you not supporting it. Some of them are still afraid. We we we have to. We have to get people to speak up more and say this is ridiculous. Anybody in the last two days. Who said you know how bad they feel about what happened in boulder or or has said something to me about the filibuster. Whatever i said. I say this now i will now say it till. I'm blue in the face. Did you make the call. What call you call the senate. Your senators tampa call mansion. Did you call the senate switchboard. You know. i say this number. Whenever i can and i'll say it right now and folks who are listening. I'll put it right here on my page and want to get a pencil out or whatever to they. Still make pencils two. Oh two two two four three one to one. If you don't know who you're senator is when the operator answers the call Just tell him or her The state you live in and they'll connect you to to one of the two senators and then call back and talk to the other one. We'll talk to their their aides. Somebody will talk to you. They wanna know how you feel about this. Yeah i mean you know there's one hundred thousand people listening to me right now. There's two hundred thousand people all you've gotta do is dial two. Oh two two four three one. Two one boom fifteen to thirty seconds of your time lengths reflective without on with an example back when we were trying to close the gun show loophole in colorado before it went on the ballot. Senator who was leaked. Who's trying to get. The bill passed in the state legislature. Close the gun show loophole. He was at a meeting and a woman asked him. Are we gonna close that loophole. And he said ma'am it's not looking like it. She said why not. Why can't we get this close. And he said ma'am who's your who's your who's your state representative and senator. And she said. I'll i'm not sure he said ma'am that's why it's not going to pass. That is what it comes down to. Until people more people speak up and make their voices heard and encouraged her neighbors to do that and get involved in not count on somebody else doing it. It's not going to change. Who many americans think that this issue is a. The people advocating on this issue are extremists. You know on both the pro gun side of the zealots as well as the a gun. Violence prevention people. I'm sorry i. I don't consider myself an extremist at all. I do think that people on the other side are extremists. They're owning mac and we and we have to. We already outnumber them. But now we've got a. We've got to out shout them. They're very good at shouting. They're very good at intimidating. We have to play their ball game and remember the worthy majority in this case the ninety percent majority. Yes yes there was. Somebody i saw on the cable news here yesterday I don't know if it was either congressman out there. somebody said they. You went to some inauguration colorado on dc but he said this is their this. Is i think reporter saying that daniel would be his age. They would be of the same age right now. It annual lived. I thought oh my god and what. What did we all lose as a result of that. What did we lose out on. Who would he have been what you've done. How much better with the world of ben. Frankly tried. I try not to think of that. It's it's it's too difficult. Sorry to bring it up. But i want. I want you to know that you're not the only one has to think about this. And we do think we think about you. All of us who worked in the film This you have Been with us all these twenty two years and we're all as committed as we were before we just don't necessarily have the answer. We have some answers that can maybe explain who we are as americans but but the actual the path to success to end this once and for all well. I know what happens when there's no filibuster because we will immediately have whatever laws we need passed but that will require a massive uprising. American people calling that senate switchboard number and demanding demanding that these laws get passed. That's right. I wanna believe right now. This is our moment. Maybe my crazy thinking that this possibly be so many times. I thought for sure after sandy hook you know and and i i interviewed a some of the parents after sandy hook and i was going to do something and i i thought you know what the thing here we during vietnam the nightly news showed us actually showed footage our soldiers being killed in vietnam. That did more to war. People saw that at dinnertime and were horrified. Bring the troops home that became the rallying cry across the country. I think i think if people saw the crime scene photos from sandy hook that would be the end of that. There would be the end of the nra Because because i know nobody wants to look at that but sometimes the only emmett till when he was killed by the white supremacists back in the fifties yup. Yeah very brave. Mother brave mother. They sent the body back home here. I think to new york. And she insisted an open casket so the whole world could see what they did to her little boy and it was so horrific and it shocked the nation and it was a turning point in popular support for yes civil rights legislation for martin luther king for it didn't didn't happen overnight but somebody had to do it in and her doing that. So two or three of the sandy hook parents agreed with me. And you know we haven't done anything with it yet. Because i don't want any trauma to be triggered. The family members but america needs to take a look in the mirror in the mirror. Are those kids piled into the closet and sandy hook with close range the gunman blowing their heads off blowing half their faces off. I think if america if they would stop turning away from this and look at the actual humanity of it the damage it would be so sickening. Yes it's it's going to be sickening but we need to. We need to be sickened by this. We do and and that just forget about it. Ten days after boulder. Forget about it until the next one. I'm sorry to be so upset about this. But that is the reality. Unfortunately america the new cycle is so short people will forget. It's it's almost like thing. We have to count on is the fact that it happens so much and so often you know. This is the boulder shooting. There was the aurora theater. Shooting the the massacre in charleston. Now every city is gonna. Have you know some terrible shooting and maybe that will lead people say. Oh maybe maybe we need to try something else that with the new cycle this short. I'm sorry of most people other than colorado largely gonna forget this and they're gonna forget atlanta because it's too painful for them and they don't know they feel like they don't know what they can do. Well we have a right to bear arms. Oh gee what can you. Oh there's crazy people you know john kennedy louisiana's saying know it's it's idiot. Idiot control i mean. Come on folks when it happens this much. You can't just write it off like that but people don't wanna deal with it i think also there's too much reliance on those of us who are victims to speak up. We need more ordinary people. More people saying. I don't want to be that next tom. Mauser don't want to be the next victim. I'm going to do something now. I can't tell you how many other other victims i've come across said. I'm sorry i didn't get involved in this before now well and so am i You can't wait until it impacts you directly. You have to assume that it you could be the next one or your neighbor. Someone you love. And that's ought to be motivation to do something about it. You mentioned earlier that you felt that our generation the older generation has failed In we've failed our younger generations. How do you feel especially watching. What happened after the shooting parkland how they were guys. That massive march in dc and stayed active. I mean i've been really impressed with teenagers. High school students college students On this issue may be. Maybe what we haven't been able to do they'll be able to do it. Oh absolutely i think that they really can set set a different course and say we don't wanna live like this this this is craziness you know. Hey if if we can put up with all these drills that are so disturbing than you know what then the nra and its people. They ought to be able to cope with background checks and waiting periods and not having a salt Assault rifle they've had to put up with so much and i think they can bring about change. I really. I really think you could bring back. I went down there to parkland couple of weeks after the massacre there to see if it could help kids in and whatever they needed and I i think i mentioned the term you know. They're considered gen z. generation z. Or whatever and they said no. Don't cause that i said well. What would you wanna be called when art. What do you call yourself. And the young girl said we call ourselves the columbine generation because everybody in this room. She said and look looking around the room. Every one of us was either in our mothers bellies when columbine happened or born shortly after or shortly before and really hit me. I said really. I mean you guys this you call yourselves this. Yes that's in fact. We want you the adults to know that because you gave us this world you make us have to go through these active shooter drills the way we used to go through tornado drills when we were in school. We've we've nothing else but the fear that anybody could walk into the classroom at any time and kill us. That's our whole life. Yeah we are not gen z. She says we are the combine generation. I said wow. I just wanted to apologize. I'm sorry this is the world you've been handed. This should have been fixed long ago. The you'd have to be identified with the massacre into which you were born that year while. I'm glad i'm glad you have that you share that. Hope that this generation is going to do something is doing something you know one of the encouraging things that happens to me is when i get when i get a youtube message or an email from a young person. Who said they. They read about or video of daniel and they wanted the right to me. It's can't who wasn't even born then and they're taking the time to express on especially our condolences. That to me is so encouraging. Because they're they're willing to look at what something happened in the past and realize how that ties into today how it's still a problem I am so encouraged. When i hear from young people. Yes yes i am too. I am maybe we'll just leave it on that that There in lies the hope. But i want everybody listening to this to call that switchboard number the us senate To end the filibuster impasse this gun legislation to two two two four. Three one to this telethon. We're not raising money. I'm asking you to be pleased. Be citizen and call tom. I'm so grateful that you had the time to spend with us tonight. I hope you're doing well. Thanks it's it is people like you that are going to help change this world. You've already done it in many ways. You've changed many minds. Keep at added if you can but like you said. I don't think this is the burden that the victims have to carry. I think this is on us and all the rest of us we call ourselves citizens of this democracy that we have to start acting like it. Tyler thank you. You're welcome be well. Yeah and say hi to your family and tell them we wish them. Well i'll take care bye. Well that was Really something catching up with. Tom again in so happy to see that he's still working on this but we can't obviously leave it up to him and the other victims as he said. This is something we have to do. Hate is a few of the things that just want to catch up with the on before we finish. But before i do that i wanna take a moment to thank our amazing underwriter for this particular episode amazon studios those film people there and they have an amazing film out right now that has been nominated for the academy awards. It's called time. Time was directed by garrett bradley and it is the most honored documentary of the year in addition to its oscar nomination. It's been nominated for best documentary by the independent spirit. Awards outstanding producer of a documentary by the producers guild of america and all. This is on top of awards.

This is definitely one of the great documentaries of the last few years and it's director garrett bradley this is her feature documentary debut and. i think that she has accomplished something very profound. She's made both beautiful love story. That's also a powerful film about america's cruel and racist prison industrial complex. I know you've never heard those words in the same sentence before love story and racist prison industrial complex. But that that's the genius of this film. It tells the story of a black woman. Her name is fox rich and she has spent the last two decades campaigning for the release of her husband. Rob g rich who is serving his sixty year. Sentence for robbery committed back in the early nineties. Garrett paints a mesmerizing portrait of resilience and radical of that's necessary to prevail over all these years of separation separation. That's caused by this country's mass incarceration epidemic. So my friends. Please do yourself a favor watch time.

Don't want to go back to the old normal and the new normal that's been created during the pandemic hasn't really been so great on a number of levels. Think of how hard it's been just to communicate with each other in the ways that we've had to cobble together some sort of communication system so that we can work with each other and yet when it's come to doing this very thing whether it's our kids are trying to do it because they've had to be going to school while their home or whether it's you trying to work with your colleagues at work whether it's maybe you're nonprofit that you're part of your food co-op whatever it is. All of us have said during this year. There's got to be a better way to do this to communicate collectively with each other. Well there is and signal wire was built for this moment. You know the other methods of you know how we all are on our screens and we have all the other people were working with her on the screen.

And that's the last that was heard of them all the pilot all the plane. Okay add some more. Mr krell had the whole area search for months. The search itself cost almost fifty thousand dollars in the plane was not found. They finally decided that it must have fallen into the mississippi where it would sink to the bottom and didn't stay river. Now wait a minute max. Yes aren't you. Don't you remember anything about this trip. Nothing not a single thing. Last i remember is another putting me to bed in a strange city hotel. And that's okay. What's next remember archie. Dear didn't my father go over the school business with mr wolf. Suppose he did. Do we have to do it again. There must be some reason why he wanted me to take to a nightclub hundred times. Maybe what's the next thing you remember after your mother. Put you to bed in a strange city. I have a confession to me this. I believe go ahead. Ten million dollars is a lot of money. So i've been told i don't really remember a single solitary thing before i was six years old and going to school in rogers arkansas. Not anthony george wearing tales. Sort not your mother putting it abedin hotel in saint louis. Ten million dollars archie. So you're not macro but of course i'm mega. Why may have tried to make the story.

Take him out in the alley. It would be a pleasure. Wait a second naci with one arm tied behind you. I think you could probably beat me into a pulp. Is it all right if we don't prove it. We're talking about the diary archie. Okay what about it archie. I don't even claim the handwriting is mine. What's handwriting when you're six years old still. The first page is one of those things that has named named parents home address. Like that color of hair. Is you know sure. I had one myself. Certainly every child had one lawn or a dozen.

Lynch and starring peg lynch and alan bond. Steer wake up. Wake up honey rica. i just found out. Not only was may vaccine here in america before columbus but there was another man to carl sack. That was his name exciting. What time is three thirty. I guess i know after three. Listen to the tube into bed at all. Did you hear what i said here. The school march betsy wrong because she puts down lay barracks instead of columbus and not only was laid brexit ahead of columbus but also a man named thorburn. Carl got kenny. I i sympathize and all that but as with your determination to stick up for your ancestors. But i'll be darned if i care who discovered america's career clogging the morning. Honey please stephanie. That was his name. And i never even heard of him little here of him again. I ran across his name one of the reference books and then i looked him up miss encyclopedia and thorburn. Carl stepney not only landed in america but he established a settlement. And get this point. I couldn't care less. Who discovered american fact. That was both leif eriksson columbus day to home. Listen to me. I have made a discovery myself. Missed four of and carlson. They brought his wife with him and they had a baby. That means the first white child born on. This continent was not virginia. Dare in the early virginia settlement of sixteen something but the viking baby. A boy named nori. Carl seth anthony in the year ten. Oh three bladed. You read Right here in this book got at the library. Give me my bathroom. Then you fix some coffee Oh now listen to this. The encyclopedia stats right. Outsing leif eriksson scandinavian. Discover of america. Cream williams. says it's merely a legend or folktales. Not one even suggest that he didn't get to america right here in the year nine nine nine and sailed from greenland where his father eric. The red had established the first settlement. He sailed him norway to the court of king. Olav trig vison. The king commission latex vaccine to proclaim christianity in greenland on his way back to greenland lever x. Was blown off course and arrived at newlands of which he had no previous knowledge and which he called finland here he found self sown wheat and vines samples of which he took back to his father's home in greenland authorities different about the exact location of them but it seems probable that erickson visited the southern part of what is now nova scotia Though there was some authorities who thought the vikings atlanta to some part of connecticut. They've found mooring stones or something the ruins of an old fort. There doesn't say anything about that here. But i've heard about that too and there's no room stone. They found years ago in. Minnesota reminds me. I have no kidding. Sitting around in the middle of the night reading reference books and drinking coffee onate. I remember the night. I was cramming for some exam. You know there were three of us you down mercer and check stayed up with us making coffee and sandwiches and firing question than you were also scared. You were gonna flunk y- you would have if you hadn't stayed up all night and help this cram for the test status each day you wouldn't have had to cram the last minute young man look. I was busy. I had enough on my mind. Just trying to keep you away from little pip squeak. You thought so non cute. oh yes. What was his name. He ask j. j. j. o. He was cute. He was jealous of him jealous. Little i got away from him. Denying you know why he was too short. I got tired of wearing flat heeled shoes. So i wouldn't tell her over. We had fun back in college and we honey spun looking up all his reference material. Got it takes us back. Doesn't it s going to see the principal. The school the damn certainly going to be armed with information makes me so mad. Every time i think the teacher marking betsy wrong and then you have got to face. The teacher was right when she said that. If she asks who discovered america she cannot mark twenty-three other pupils wrong. If they answer colome i know that but betsy is. Answer wasn't wrong either. It says right here in the fackler pedia maybe and scandinavian discover of america nearly five hundred years before columbus for him. I don't too upset about it. It isn't that because you're the one who told betsy the story barracks eggs and i don't like the the bet the as a result now things we don't know we're talking about. We have to prove that we do not want the school to do is acknowledge. Believe you me when i talked to the principal. I'm gonna talk to the principal. Don't get mad. Don't get mad but you are not always very diplomatic about these things. You're not darling. For example virginia damn business every historian recognizes that. She was the first white child born in america not used to read. What is probably a very questionable account of some viking baby and want to challenge west right here in encyclopedia. Urban cossack knee landed in america in ten three and his son was born. He had last handled calmly and with dignity. So let me do it. i'm not nearly as upset about it as you so i can discuss it with a more detached point of view all right there. You talk to the pentagon. Yeah yes while my wife. And i both realize it's very trivial point while we regret even making a small issue of it tall mr pipe. I wish more parents would come and see me when they feel. It's been some misunderstandings however turned to you. Well as my wife said all. We want really for the school to acknowledge the fact that betsy was not wrong when she answered that leave. Barry's discovered america. I mean idea now. I'm a favorite gotten into another is understanding. I didn't mean veggies should be mocked right. Oh but you just agree. In misleading the head basis for our complain. Of course. But i only agreed that betsy and her classmates should be told. The complete story of life ericsson which is a interesting one is the pipe but hardly based on historical fact indeed all we know life ericsson is based on the old viking saga handed down through the generations and song in stores withing. Do i understand that. The school does not acknowledge the actual existence of leif eriksson. I did not say that pipe. But i will say this as principal of this school. I only acknowledged one verdict. Answer to the question. Who discovered america. Surely miss the paper. You don't expect me to deny the existence and refused the discoveries of christopher columbus. I expect to school. I am sending my child to recognize certain historical facts such as the fact that the white child born in america was not virginia. Dare but the son of or doesn't doesn't recognize that back. Either darpa concept. I don't even know what you're talking. I am talking. Dorfman carl's half name is and even he was here before columbus. He established a settlement in an old four. Now all i ask. Is that the the jewish knowledge knowledge knowledge is only christopher columbus. Mr paper as the discoverer of america. I would appreciate it if you would call my daughter to the office misleading. I am taking out of school. Stop crying take me out to go to school. Going to any school blindly refuses to recognize certain facts. You can't keep beth the single for heaven's sake right all right all right. We'll send it to a private school. Private school wanted least recognize right at school. I don't be ridiculous where we get money to send betsy to private school. And what private school. I didn't want to go to any other school. I wanna go to win. My friends are wanna go. Just where i've been going of course. Of course you run upstairs and your face and cold water honey go on. Let me talk to daddy. Run along swim not stop wearing. Go big your face. Dear in colorado. What in the world happened. You were the one that was going to see the principal instead me because you are going to be so calm and dignified now. You arrived home in a rage having taken taken betsy out of school. I know i know i got mad. All i asked was it. The school acknowledged that. Betsy answer was right. That's all acknowledged. The lee erickson really discovered america. Even though credit is given to the columbus. I know. But i mean i i got to thinking do the school and the teachers and the principal. I mean they do have a position to maintain you know well anyhow honey. We can't take betsy out of school. I have taken around. I look. I know. I was upset but i never met anything as drastic as this. Even you said we shouldn't make too big an issue of it. I mean we made an issue of a now even if we involve the board of education. Betsy is not going back to school until her. Paper is remarked and her answer is acknowledged to be correct at poor kit. Her classmates laughing at it because she wrote down leif eriksson. Betsy doesn't care about it anymore. Children forget and if we keep her out of school she'd missed so much we'd have to get a tutor. I mean really dominant. We just cannot start anything. Like i'm guarded will start. D'amato look you better be prepared for the truant officer. Dare listen faxer. Faxed i mean. Christopher columbus wasn't i the the the vikings were here first. So you know in idiot.

And then i had some drinks. I don't know how many of them the more i drank more. Hope everything looked digital shepherd. Yeah i call him from the bar any idea what time it was must have been around five or six. What difference does that all make. I'm cooked in you. Know on your call shepherd. Then what did you do. I told him. I wanted to talk about everything that had happened. I told him where to meet me. You mean you want a doctor shepherd to come down and meet you so you could kill him. Maybe i did have that in my mind. I don't know on the phone. He sounded so calm and said we could talk it out. Straighten it out like gentlemen. Did you talk to him. no. I didn't see him at all. I waited an hour and he never showed up. I called his office back in the answering service at everyone had gone out for the day and i know what to do. I got back in my car and turned on the radio.

I wouldn't give her a divorce. If i had let her shepherd get away with it would have been too much to take. This doesn't make sense even though you didn't love her and she didn't love you. You wouldn't stand still for divorce action. That sounds stupid. I just told you. I needed her. So much. this last year or so so doesn't make any sense forbes. Why did you let a goal.

Oh yeah oh you don't say we. I just saw at the park right down in the common square king square. We'll just after four thick so maybe like four twenty or so you go. That's right where there was a thing. And i gave a speech. People were there. There's like a microphone. The amplifier speaker and like a bunch of people showed up. Yes i believe so. Yeah i spoke. Yeah that's right to. I didn't speak. I remained silent. You're a strong and silent. I didn't respect that. I didn't speak but i did. Inhale i may have partake in some sacrament in case you listeners are wondering what the heck you're listening to. It is the tuesday night edition of free. Talk live and i am your host tonight. The reverend captain kick ass joining me. Joa and vincent and happy to have both the against here doing the show tonight particularly on this day we did have a thing in the keen circle which is officially known as keen square central square despite the fact that it is circular in shape and it had to continue the tradition. Leave it leave it to the government to name something incorrectly. Well you know it's like public square of a perception in the town square but the town square. The circle is where important things happen. Like today's rally in verse been four twenty rallies I believe are some at least get togethers for. I like in concord and keen for the past decade right something and a four twenty movement at least from what i saw what i heard people talk about at four twenty rally in conquered the year of decree was that the movement was going to eventually did run out of steam because a lot of people were just happy things are with decryption but ian and nobody right they never. They never settled for veterans. They didn't they never gave up on Visalia never gave up on four twenty. It was actually. It wasn't fully insured and it depends on which definition of decriminalize the every man definition. Where if you say decriminalize basically just means a liar criminal to do anything with this thing right but if you use like a city or county or a state definition of decriminalization the whole different ball ask because what they mean is well. It's still a crime but it's gonna be the lowest priority of all of the things that we prosecute. She could still getting ticket for it. You can still get a fine for us. Still want their money. It's still on their money. You could likely even get like a warrant. Don't respond to the ticket or something like that. But it's gonna take a really long time not like it doesn't already for government but they're just putting that way way bottom of the list and i don't like that definition at all because to me that does not meet the definition of decriminalization. Well the keen. Pd didn't really care much about it. Today i saw them by a little bit later on and he didn't really pay attention. But never i mean verse been more debauchery done at nightcaps. Right it did smell pretty strong there. I smelled it from across the street. So i guess you guys certainly made your presence known. Well that's good anybody will. It wasn't purely a year. Four twenty cannabis related rally also. It was four awareness for crypto six awareness four ian and nobody who are currently in jail but they i mean like ian was happy to Happy to know that people were so you know getting together as a community and stuff so this was something for them to raise awareness. We had signs We had a couple of signs. People chalked up some sidewalk joy. You did a thing on the sidewalk. I got a nice photo of that Just the plant. Then that's it. I mean that's all it is for those of you out there. Who are maybe thinking about. Why would these guys talk about maryland. Yet we're talking about marijuana cannabis cannabis particularly This is a plant with which even if you extract the thing that makes people get get if you extract that from the it's still heels It still has many many uses including textiles and rope and it all sorts of fun things that can be made out of it and with it It can be made into clothing. I mean there's so many different uses for this particular plant that even if you take out the part where like people to smoke because it makes them feel good and relaxed if you take that part out the plant is still one of the most amazing plants on the planet or yeah. Cd's legal in quite a bit of everywhere. Yeah oh everywhere. it seems like it anyway. I don't know how these dates you could get it online easily dairy easily so half of half appliances legal anyways. Yeah grows everywhere. So it's you know it's hard for them to really stop it. And i was actually talking to someone there About other things that you can just easily find that. We consider weeds that you probably walked by today easily. Walk bite today such a wild lettuce. i was going to bring up lettuce actually for a couple of different reasons. One just as an analogy. Can you imagine if something as innocuous ahead of lettuce where legal for you to grow and or consume in whatever way you saw fit and it's not like someone just plants it. There is literally growing wild everywhere. But i also had another reason for mentioning the word. Let us because if you like funk music groovy funk music with no lyrics just a band doing funk and groove check out the band lettuce. They're my favorite for twenty band currently and possibly even of all time high as coming from the captain. And i'm heavy metal so you know that these guys are super groovy and super funky. If you find me an bob my head to these guys so but i want to see the head of the. Da and you know all these presidents including biden who even know democrats control the judiciary they control the the senate. They control the house representatives. They control the of white house of a still have a hard time getting marijuana legalization past and even if it's able to pass the legislature joe biden most likely will Will veto it or any sort of attempt to reschedule. Its i wanna see. Joe biden and the head of dea and all these people tell god that He should go to jail for growing marijuana. Because god's grows naturally right so god is you know. God is v. one grower of marijuana in the planet. Look the reason why it's not to go federally and the reason why it takes so long for states to do it because they're not Not realizing the mechanism or the ability to control it in their state. That's why it's not happening federally. Because they don't know how to control it literally grows everywhere guys. I don't know they'd be able to arrest god quote unquote right. But i'm thinking maybe maybe nature right. Maybe they could arrest nature agent. Orange government made a device that can that genocides nature agent orange destroys foliage. That's true does. And then the maybe the to summon satan. That's probably close sedan tan for always attacking the middle east. Yeah yeah try. Give gog and magog at war and fulfill some prophecy. I watch hockey at all. But i know that there's a hockey player named sedan as a a. And i know this because a place that i that i worked at a guy would show up during hockey. You don't whenever people were their sports ball shirts or whatever to support their team he would show wearing his satan hoti jersey even though the tan at work because he could because of the dichotomy their version type of artificial meat. I don't know what it's made out of. Its that's literally called slime satan. It's like sit. Sei t. a. m. oh yeah at. The college is louie proud satan. Yes on a on a ban on a stick. Well they made into ribs. And i mean if i was very intoxicated i probably would've taste passable but i was not at the time and it was not it was actually discussing law. In my opinion. I guess if it was four twenty you might wolf it down. That would make me even more sick. Oh really oh yeah interest. Oh you know. Purge of good nature purges of evil evil. Or i find that when i when i get the munchies on the on the four twenty that like even the crappiest food tastes amazing. I just wanted to say one thing. I really wish Be an end nobody there. Nobody has been doing this since two thousand nine. So i've you know this is his baby to take care of. I think i think they're listening right now. And if you are you guys are definitely missed.

Joe and vincent we've been talking about well what day it is man. 'cause we'll it's april twentieth and some people know that as four twenty what is for twenty. What's the meaning behind four twenty. Well if you go to the magic rectangle in your pocket and ask that very question you'll find out very quickly. That four twenty is cannabis culture slang for marijuana and hashish consumption especially smoking time for twenty pm and also refers to cannabis or celebrations that take place annually on april twentieth. Which is for twenty in the us form of the date. That sounds like a very google. Answer it it's exactly what it is. I was just trying not to mention the source for which the answer came because well. I don't like that particular company. I don't either well. you have a story behind. Why like the numbers. For twenty from what i've heard. I think it was like so. I mean there's a bunch of like ledge urban legends like. Oh it was the police code. Oh no for marijuana. Like three ninety s drunk and disorderly and four twenty was marijuana. No no i. What what. What i saw was that Visit you whichever group popularized it. It was Verb classes or they were all free after four and they would go to the woods to consume cannabis and it would take twenty minutes to walk to the woods so they would all end up. Usually you know smoking cannabis and for four twenty. Of course i would say is very of probably many coincidences on that. In the started for twenty. I would say generally. It's apocryphal. Maybe maybe it's planting season duck season planting season duck season. I get my foot on. No nothing doesn't prefer no sorry hydroponics season. You're talking all right. We teased this at the end of the last segment. It is probably the biggest news in the nation at this particular moment. This from time dotcom derek. Chauvin is found guilty of murdering. George floyd in a milestone for america's reckoning on race nice of area. Very starting very unbiased way of Very very impartial way of reporting on it. Too big sentence with a lot of words but the basis of it is derek. Chauvin found guilty. That's such a breath of fresh a fresh breath of air. And i say that because it's really hard to get cops convicted of Super difficult very hard and there's many many have deserved it and that didn't well i don't know if in this case he should be convicted of murder. Like as in you know. It's for murder of george floyd I watched a lot of extremes of the core proceedings. And you'll be played like you know the bodycam footage in you know people's footage and the neon the national. Yeah but also they like you know. George floyd he he. He ate a lot of drugs right. I mean you know his. His drug dealer pled the theft. So we didn't hear from him. And when yeah. I mean it's like the the toxicology report of george floyd at showed that he had like a a lot of fat noah. Lot of math assistant. Okay sounds like to play the the other side of that is that maybe the cop should have known that these things are in assistant. I'm just saying they didn't assess the situation properly. Someone that was only hurting himself and it used a fake twenty ends of dying. The this is what needs to come down to like. I just going to let them. You know neil on our next and then they're gonna look into our personal pass to determine if which justified or not. I don't think so no. Everyone deserves to live. Even those that are abusing or whatever you wanna rights don't end because somebody has a questionable past or you know certain things rolling through their system that other people might not. I mean i think the average american right now probably has five to seven. Different drugs run coursing through their veins at any given time. But this i mean for charles. Vr trying the man for a guy for murder. I mean for like you know. An idea is following. Orders is no excuse for you and forcing balls. Oh excuse but something more akin to manslaughter or maybe signing but i mean just just straight up straight up murder for george way you know. He didn't force. George floyd charged with three counts and he was guilty on. All three one was murder. One was also murder and the other one was manslaughter. So i mean you know like double murder charges. I mean that. That's where i think that it's it's it's anyway. It's the crowd right and There's a lot of which actually have in prep for a lot of result of debate. On how much varieties and looting and just for destruction minneapolis and many other cities in the united states had to do with affecting the jury's decision even though they were ordered by a judge not to not to watch the news well and and how to dock spy there. I forget which which outlet it did but they like have slow byles profiles of jurors. Yeah i i think i was talking to you earlier and i don't know who did you. Alluded to there would be riots. I think regardless. I wondered decision. Went the other way there would be riots right now. We wouldn't be talking about the riots. Going on in minneapolis right now. Instead of the fact that this guy was convicted of murdering george floyd an outpouring of emotion says time. Dotcom and cheers erupted outside the tightly fortified minneapolis courthouse tightly. Fortified minneapolis courthouse. Mind you so they. They were doing. Prep they've been doing prep for a couple years now Where the jury found chauvin guilty on second degree murder third degree murder and second degree manslaughter. So it was murder murder and man's laughter as i like to say because i imagine the apostrophe and there every time i read the word floyd a forty six year old black man was handcuffed may twenty fifth twenty twenty while chauvin who is white pinned him to the ground by his knee for more than nine minutes. Floyd verbalize that he couldn't breathe more than two dozen times and the arrived face down in agony according to the prosecutors and footage of the incident which touched off a nationwide recogni reckoning on race and the largest sustained mobilization against racial injustice in recent memory. Yeah i'm surprised that there isn't more of unity around the country and people are like. Yeah this is what we want to hear. We want to hear that The people that are supposedly enforcing the law are actually breaking the law. Obviously and now. They're they're actually being held by their own system. That's what i'm trying to get. Accountability is huge. Now this is one out of thousands of times in in my mind. At least since. I've been doing freeze or listening to freetalklive where you know. It goes the other way right. The police generally investigate themselves. Finally did nothing wrong and then let the guy off or like he gets to sort of be. Let go from whatever city worked in and go get another job as a cop and another city but now they're going to be rolling out the troops right. Is that what they've already done. By at six o'clock they started rolling out troops. Three thousand troops out there why heavily fortified minneapolis. We can talk more about that. Six zero three two eight three six one six zero.

Joa and vincent we've been talking about well the either chauvinist or not chauvinist. I guess right so either either. You're happy that chauvinist found guilty. And then makes you a chauvinist. Yeah i'm just making. I'm i'm attempting to be funny. It's not going very well. At least they're having dance parties in the not rioting right now okay dance. Is it like serious. Buehler's day off arrayed and afloat and yeah but for still the street or for va road rather not justice resource blocking roads so people who have to go to work people who have to go home after weight and it's like two hour difference between here and there so it's thirty five thirty four. Is dancing illegal though in bars were now. The whole the mandate not social distancing. You're right this is a this is a terrible senator. Riott squad right now. Separate them separate socially distancing. I during the break vincent you had asked about. Does this article from time mentioned sentencing. And so i i did a search and yep it sure does. Here's what it says. Show and forty five appeared concerned behind his mask. His eyes darting side as the verdict was read like that's relevant anything second degree murder. The most serious charge carries up to forty years in prison. Chauvin was remanded and let out of the courtroom in handcuffs. He's due to be sentenced in two months so so they they convicted this guy double murder and he's facing less time in prison bent ian for some innocuous bitcoin transaction so i think the listeners out there should try to spread the crypto six dot com because of more ridiculousness. This you can you know murder somebody and probably have less jail time than being peaceful. Yeah then you know. Peacefully interacting with other human beings meanwhile a large crowd that gathered outside. The courtroom broke out and chance. If we fight we can win. They repeated while marching. floyd's girlfriend courtney. Ross told reporters that tuesday's verdict means there will be progress for police reform changes coming. She said adding that she had felt confident. The jury would find chauvin guilty. I'm not sure how she can predict that changes coming. I mean i predict is coming to just not in the same way. She predicts it. When the verdict was announced floyd's family and supporters were overcome with emotion and held each other with tears in their eyes. The reverend al shut why. Why is okay. The reverend al sharpton said at a news conference like i mean. He's does this guy ever get any press outside of show up at like one of these things that has really nothing to do with him at all professional race baiting. And you know he was an fbi informant to was a snitch career snitch. Oh yeah this is just for political clout well. He said there's sunlight sharpton said before leading a prayer. We're going to keep going keep going. I guess he's gonna keep gifting keep fundraising off of dead people way. Is he saying that. God's gonna continue murdering. I mean he does say we're going to keep going okay. Yeah there's a whole bunch more hear about you. Know the witnesses they called and you know it goes into great detail about the trial itself which this thing is all over the news. I'm very very reluctant to cover like any of these details. Yes it is the biggest news probably in the country right now but i mean do. We need to cover it here on free. Talk live in great detail methinks. Not when i mean. I think it's curious that the media out of all the people who get arrested for victimless crimes. And get killed for it. This one case which i mean in most cases would just be you know local news or state news. Become this massive nationwide thing. We're seeing holograms and this is pushed very hard. Oh it certainly is. They do say a little more about Medical experts called by prosecutors testified. That floyd dying of low oxygen levels from being restrained by police and not directly from heart conditions or drug use which the defense argued was the case. It's funny seeing Chauvin sitting in court with the mass gonna. I wonder if he's going to have to wear masks of his life. Because up to his execution. I hope they double mascot actually many have described the chauvin trial as a critical moments and an inflection point in american history. During the first day of testimony crump said the landmark case would be a referendum on how far america has come on its quest for equality and justice for all if america we're on a quest for equality and justice for all it would immediately disband. Well that sounds nice. We would have peace because then you would have equality and justice for all saying if if the people who create laws disappears. We'll have any crime like the ones that create laws for criminal acts. If those didn't exist we don't have any more crime. No that's not what i'm saying. Well that's how it works right. So every time they pass a law that doing it because known the the free market doesn't want to do it so we they had the punishes. What i'm saying is that crimes will still exist but will be doing eliminating the largest criminal to ever walk the planet earth that is the organization type known as government. I guess my point is that crime is a legal term in the immoral acts would be more proper without government. Yes and you would be able to seek justice until you were satisfied. I hope so. Not you know have to live or die with the decision of people that have never met you or anybody involved with whatever the transgression was etc. And so on run. There would be services. You could pay to do all of this for you as well because the free market would just interject where value is required and boom there. You have it to securities. Let's go to scott calling from miami scott free talk live. Good evening captain show up. And then since thank you and taking my call. Today of course marks Tha milestone derek chauvin trial.

You probably know that. Blacks killing each other Blacks this is worse than the days of al capone went off white italian with guns. Oh blacks in chicago. You know chicago at all. Are people killing each other with guns because chicago has some of the strictest gun laws planet earth like everything is illegal gun lies in chicago.

Derek chauvin found guilty of murdering george floyd and so we've applied on many things. There's a couple of bits here at the end that i think we're you know as far as time is concerned a pretty good writing show. Wtn's trial has now made history in a city whose police department has a long history of racist incidents and in a nation where criminal charges for police officers are rare and convictions. Extraordinary as far as rare nece is concerned from january. Two thousand five to march two thousand and twenty one just one hundred and thirty eight law enforcement officers have been charged with murder or manslaughter for on-duty shootings according to an and an analysis prepared for time by philip stinson a professor of criminal justice who also directs the henry a wallace police crime database at bowling green state university of the one hundred thirty eight officers forty four have been convicted and while the trial was unfolding on april eleventh. Another black man was killed by a police officer in the minnesota city of brooklyn center. It's basically minneapolis. Keep making this distinction. But it's basically the same thing. I thought this was happening in new york for like a few days. Miles away from minneapolis. Which you know okay. It's like a a neighborhood of minneapolis. If you will the fatal shooting of twenty year old dante right during a traffic stop sparked protests in a city already on the edge crump said rights was another black lives taken unjustly by police and he was deprived of the benefit of humanity. Well i think. I know which way that case is going to swing to i. I hope she gets murder. And this teaser. That's a lady. There's no doubt there's absolutely no doubt. Yeah she feared for her life. We shouldn't run up to someone's car pull him over and try to kidnapping. I think you know there's a moral you know. Well and the reason he had a warrant was failure to appear for some other bench thing that he had gone so like the warranty in and of itself. Is there excuse. But if you look at what the warrant was four. It was just failure to appear for some other bench style thing so in god forbid you have air freshener because we got him pulled over in the first place. Well that's according to his mom he had called and said. Hey i'm getting pulled over and she's like why over he's like for the air fresheners hanging from my window from his rear view mirror so what i do find interesting though I don't know which one of you this one in but this is from the. Us son. George floyd trial three thousand national guard deployed in minneapolis. As ex-cop derek. Chauvin is found guilty of murder. Now where did they deploy these three thousand national guard troops did they deploy them to paul in in minneapolis. Okay but let's be a little more specific. Did they deploy them to protect the crowds of people that were gathering. Or did they deploy them to protect the government buildings and such from the crowds. That were gathered. Oh yeah yeah or protect a private businesses from being looted. So sure but yeah. They've been fortifying their Government facilities for a while now Not just because of this incident. Before floyd i think there was Escalation in riots in They they definitely had barricaded and that sort of thing during the iron c. In saint paul years ago So they've been building this up. Then this is what government does it's gonna. They're going to fortify their their infrastructure. So they can just keep on with business in europe they did get these buildings their ideas little is going to stay in place especially when they out three thousand troops and this is worded so strangely thousands of national guard troops have been drafted into minneapolis as the city braces itself for possible riots when the dare show in the trial verdict was given i. They use the term drafted. I agree maybe no one wanted to do it. And they basically got a bunch of people that would do it. I don't know like usually it's deployed. So someone who's in the national guard you know for was via two was two two weekends a month two weeks a year. Yes they say okay. You're you're being deployed. So i could just be a poor choice in words trauma. I'm not a military experts. I wanna any cleveland on on the wording but well it says Major general sean. Main key said more than three thousand national guard. Troops were deployed across saint paul minnesota in anticipation of possible unrest. The wall street journal reported pictures show. Demonstrators gathered in minneapolis as they waited for show. Wtn's to be announced. People were seen rejoicing with their fists in the air and hugging another as it was revealed that chauvin had been found guilty. National guard troops being deployed came as countless protesters took to the streets when the closing arguments were heard on monday with demonstrators brandishing signs. That read blue lives matter as they demanded justice for george floyd. I'm sorry. I'm sorry there's to my knowledge there isn't a race of human beings that are blue. Correct me if i'm wrong. You just saw that. I just showed you that of chicago. This blue people talking about the blue man group Yeah yeah they're over there masturbate. Blue lives manner blue murder rate. Isn't that what the protest was. Oh wait you know what. I did read that wrong. It does lives. Murder was one of the protests signs. Not blue lives matter okay. Well i was wondering the argument could be applied like are they. Are they a blue life or are they. Just a life smurfs. They're not a smart. That's interesting that you bring that up. I i made some passing about smurfs last night on the show. It was also murphy. No worries owned businesses have boarded up doors and windows as the minnesota city transformed into a fortress over the weekend with vandals smearing pig's blood and leaving a severed pig's head at the home of an expert witness for the defense. What a waste of pig. I mean you could add a pig roast. Who does a nice. I mean yeah. More than eleven hundred officers from public safety agencies across minnesota have also been brought in to help stem any potential unrest as the city waited with baited breath over the verdict and blah blah blah blah blah. So they rolled in. You know military people the call them the national guard of course but they've got all the fitting accoutrements humvees and whatever you wanna call You could even terry style rifles. You could even mistake them for police. If the only bryn brought an eleven hundred officers and three thousand guardsmen. That's only forty one hundred. I bet betcha this crowd whatever. That's protesting in cheering now and dancing in the street. There's probably a lot more than just say just want to put that out there. This article starts into the article.

I i didn't bringing on this is At least to me it was breaking news. I didn't get a chance to look at the news all day. And i covered this issue on my show on my show. Monday where maxine waters congresswoman from california. She you know who who notably people might recognize your voice from a sound bite where she's telling like a crowd of protesters to get up in people's faces in you know crowd and at restaurants also said that anyone who entered the capital on december. Sixth of january six riot was a terrorist. So she was in. She was in minne- minneapolis way. Didn't a bunch of politicians enter the capital and no That was afterwards right. She's talking about those criminal. And so she's saying that all these people who just you know went into building our domestic terrorists. So she went to you. Know she went to She went to minnesota and she was giving interviews saying that. Protesters need to be more confrontational needs to be more. Just you'll get out there more. And she say stuff like that be just just why i think they want more uprisings sounds like incitement because because it lets them increase. Police stay right. I mean they sacrifice one right show van just to get people used to have this. You're seeing riot. People in gear having the machine guns essentially as i said has having police right law enforcement be indistinguishable from the military. And so that's why. I think you have these. Politicians know advocating a descendant such rice or. It looks like she's biting the hand that feeds her right. You know these people are Want to be you know something. I a lot of them are just a peacefully. Protest right but then very vocal very loud minority. That is rioting. Looting destroying things hurting people like you know hurting journalists to write. If you're trying to film they don't want from filming crime. So they attack the person they hit him in the head with rocks and so she's there provoking these people right she's I use is in a way. Inciting these people to insurrection and in a few hours later visit drive-by shooting against the national guard. And that's where this article picks up so this is a twenty eight year. Old man has been arrested and charged following an incident over the weekend during which national guard members were shot at in minneapolis. Shot at not shot shot at according to a news. Release from the. Us attorney's office andrew. Thomas has been charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. Well okay so a couple of things here. I will never trust a man with two first names andrew thomas. that's just a running joke. Noted number two of course is a he was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. Now what does that mean. Well you know President kids sniffer has signed a bunch of e. o.'s. Recently talking about you know more gun control and strengthening the the laws that already existed cetera. And so on well. Here's a guy who it's already illegal for him to possess a firearm and he's been charged with well just that exact thing so make it all the laws you want doesn't mean people aren't going to possess firearms and again i contend government. If you wish the people to be disarmed you must. I put down your arms and show us how the f. it's done continuing on. Yeah no i. I don't think Anyone should lose their gun rights. Even if you've been convicted phone you serve your time and you get out you get. That's right. it used to be you know the the constitution's pretty clear and i'm only citing the constitution's because that's their game and if that's what the law says that's what the law says stop being hypocrites and let's get to the bottom of this and people still have the right to protect themselves after serving their time. Joe the law is not for them for us. I think the solution where we could you know agree with. Blm is cop should be like cops in in v united kingdom right in the uk. Knock any guns they yell halt or l. Halt once again or arrest people for having spoons and cutlery they did and so and and then people would say. Oh well what i like a shooting or something. Then you know they keep the special you know. They have like a special firearms unit for like a mass shooting or something. And i think you'd be able to cut down on majority of these deaths. If you just disarmed a police right. We don't need gun control. We need police control. Yes law enforcement to fbi navy's agents. I would argue. We need abolishment of the organization of police as it is currently no well. Liquid saying earlier is that they have written so many laws that were all criminals now. I'm sure there's a book out that it's like you. You commit at least three felonies. A day every today and i haven't read it myself but i should i promise you know and and it's true like we're subjugated to all these different laws. And then they expect us to be good citizens subjects. Yeah it's it's really about them versus us. The problem that i have with the police department in general right. We're talking about any police department anywhere. In the united states of america they have no incentive to do the right thing period they have no incentive to do the right they have every incentive to arrest you because they get double in the courts when they sit there and try you whatever and they obviously get promoted when they Make arrests so. They have every incentive to a forego their discretion and to look for profit or raises or promotions or just. You know overall societal clout because there's a lot of people that support the blue you know back. The blue at the incentive structure is backwards to say the least if not upside down if not completely inverted in my opinion. And that is why you're never going to see meaningful police reform. You cannot reform an organization that is based in immorality. And no ethics. it is impossible. The organization itself is based on a monopoly of force monopoly violence. They claim to be the ones able to initiate violence and they claim a monopoly on it. Because if you try to initiate new that's our turf. You're stepping on pal. So they claim a monopoly on force a monopoly on violence and you cannot build an organization that acts in a just way when it's based on immorality and lack of ethics. Just not possible to do so. Rarely you get a private company to do an event Out outside source to investigate investigate Murdered by the please right. It's usually themselves investigating themselves in fighting no wrongdoing of course because they have all the incentive in the world not to six zero three two eight three six one six zero.

It's myself the reverend captain. Kick ass joining me. Joa and vincent and we've been talking about well all sorts of fun things. Of course the chauvin verdict the fact that there were over three thousand national guard deployed into minneapolis in anticipation of the reading of the verdict. And now a man has been arrested and charged following a shooting that injured two of these national guard members in minneapolis. A twenty eight year old man has been arrested and charged following an incident over the weekend during which national guard members were shot at in minneapolis. A criminal complaint says out about four twenty. Am on sunday. Oh wow i tell you all this. This terrible news is kill. My buzz it is a criminal complaint about four twenty. Am sunday a team of national guard. Soldiers and a minneapolis. Police officer had multiple shots fired at them. Near penn avenue. North and west broadway avenue. The two soldiers suffered minor injuries from the incident later sunday evening. Police in the area of six street south and cedar avenue south located in suv that matched the description to the suspect. Vehicle in the shooting after conducting a traffic stop. Thomas and a juvenile passenger were placed in separate police cars after receiving a warrant officers later executed a search of the vehicle and found two firearms ammunition and two cartridge casings. According to the complaint. Thomas is unable to have a firearm due to a prior felony according to the us attorney's office. He is expected to make his first court appearance on tuesday. So that is Andrew thomas the man who's been arrested in somebody else they haven't named because he's a juvenile. Apparently your thoughts. I don't think the community wants authorities. There and i don't blame him because look what they're doing to people and so i mean you should expect these types of things but if they try to escalate if the government tries to escalate by sending troops there. You're not going to create a more peaceful situation Let them party in the streets. Right now let them have their day because and now you gotta change policy. I think maxine waters needs to be censored in the house of representatives for stirring insurrection because representatives can't be impeached. So i think she needs to get a taste of their own medicine. Yeah let's go to turn ferguson. Who's calling from his hot tub in pennsylvania. Third you're on free talk live. Yeah gentleman i appreciate you taking my call. You guys are a little thin quiet on my end. But i'll try to pair with air to get even turn up the volume on your two stanzas better. It might be. It's yeah it's definitely it's definitely try and talk like this the rest of the night. Great now The reason why. I'm calling because there seems to be quite a lot of cookery going on the beatrix and not offense tonight Particularly from one. Shantelle like tofu. liquor tonight. total cop sucker and to to to the point where. It's almost disgusting pitiful. I mean i mean. I can't stand authoritarian loving lakers. It it just makes me sick that cookery but There seems to be some confusion about the derek chauvin trial because there are a lot of cuck. -servative out there. This seems to think that this guy is this. And i actually watched trial unlike the conservative commentators. Who didn't watch the trial. And just all copying ben shapiro saying getting their right bench bureau and just because it's true. I watched Trial itself and i could tell you based on the evidence. Trial that dirt chauvin is definitely guilty of murder to and he's definitely gonna be manslaughter as well Forget about even murder three. We already murder too but he was giving felony. The police chief of police testified that he was assaulting. George floyd when he had his nieto's neck he was committing a felony while george point died and he was the one that calls george today as the expert autopsy. Witness testified to so the cuc serves out there. That are saying That derek chauvin is innocent. It's just a bunch of mother. Cookery if i if you don't mind me saying careful. I'm being as careful as i can. More careful gotcha. Yeah but What do you guys think of my peace. When i think of your piece well sometimes herds fall into several pieces and they get flushed so we appreciate the call tonight I you know. What do i think of it. What you have an opinion and your opinion differs probably from everybody else's opinion. So you know. That's what i think. I think everybody has an opinion about this thing Who's right who's wrong to tell when governments involved all i can tell you is that i believe that i witnessed a man neil on the neck of another man until he died on a on a piece of video that i launched because of a lack of a supposed- fraudulent fraudulent bill. I mean it's already fraudulent and some amid a copy. He probably by talking about money. Yes yes the almighty dollar is what those cops were protecting one way or another. That's undoubtedly and you know every print it. Let's just say that he actually didn't make a himself which don't think he did. I think he acquired it some other way. He didn't realize it was ever. But what is the legitimacy of that bill. One way or another because you could just make him out of thin air. I think nothing You know you you know. I'm sure a lot of people are relieved that it was a guilty verdict. But i don't think anything good could come from this. I mean i think this is going to be the beginning of a lot of police federalization and it's Yeah i mean it's it's like they sacrifice one pawn for an even greater Looks like you in order to create an even greater police state down the road yet. It seems that that skin and be the way it's going to go. I can't imagine it going any other direction because started up. And i'm just thinking if instead of only protesting when cnn you know plays video and when the mainstream media talks about like you know murder of one person why if people got together a revival thousands or by the millions and protest against police state right like you know. They protests against the death of one person and they don't protest against all variety. You know they don't protest against cops having bearcats in small towns they don't protest against people's you'll losing a property due to civil asset forfeiture irs. Right i mean if they protested those institutional things. We wouldn't have to deal with them anymore. So i don't really see any good coming from this because the only reason why any quoting justice was served was just because that's what that's sort of what like the establishment and the media wanted to happen and i think that maybe for the first time in a long time. The establishment was concerned about what might happen. Had they found him not guilty. Hope biden was able to call the family today. And i'm like oh this is all political now. Of course it is six zero three two eight three six one six zero. Can these things get more political. I believe they can. We'll talk more coming up on free.

We have some good news. The indictments against celebrate in the district of maryland were dismissed with prejudice. Meaning they can never be refiled. This is especially good. Because those indictments contain the only charge ever made ross engaged in murder-for-hire. This was a serious allegation at rolls. Outbreak denies it was never prosecuted or wrote on by a jury but was trumpeted by the federal government. And the media. As if it were proven fact the maryland court held these indictments for almost five years poisoning case and leaving him under a cloud of unproven allegations as explained in ross's appeal to the supreme court. The fact that the judge used these allegations to give her all say draconian sentence of life without parole violated his sixth amendment right to a jury trial. Judges are required to issue senate based on convictions. Decided by a jury not unproven. Allegations never even charged at trial.

We did get to have ian on the show last night. Going from merrimack county jail. I was able to get his hour of yard time. Or whatever they're calling it during the show kinda right at the top of the show. We kept him on for a couple of segments Surprisingly considering the circumstances he seems in good spirits. But i think Of that was just he was happy to talk to us and get his voice out on the show that he founded once again. It was. The only part of the show is able to listen to last night. It's a good part. I mean it was gonna listen to just one part that would have been the one so we've been talking about the chauvin decision of course guilty on three counts unanimously We've been talking about the fact that they deployed over three thousand national guard troops to minneapolis not enough and then of course a twenty eight year old man was arrested and charged following incident over the weekend during which the national a couple national guard members were shot at and One of these people was a felon who you know. Shouldn't be able to get a gun. Legally which i'm sure he didn't he had one nonetheless and so we can talk more about that. If we have the terminology is he's not allowed to get a gun caen make possess. I believe sweet campus s if he makes himself according to a news release from the us attorney's office andrew. Thomas has been charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. Okay right so like you know. i don't I'm not sure how it would go down like. Let's say i'm a felon and i'm married to a non felon and my wife owns guns now if i picked one up because there was me. I don't know some terrorist trying to kick down my door with like a battering ram or something. Would i be guilty of felony possession of a fair. Well see we. We had a caller of Maybe like two weeks ago and he was talking about just that how his wife had guns in that he was charged with felony possession. You remember that He lost his girlfriend when when you know to the her drug dealer. That story doesn't ring a bell guy time. It was a sad sure. I was on the show. Maybe not maybe not sorry about that. All right no. It's a sounds like a great story. I will go back at freetalklive dot com and search the archives. Yes for that story because it sounds like when i need to listen to i try and keep up with the shows. I do listen to the digest version that riley blake puts together for us on nearly a daily basis if not a daily basis. It's been a while since he's taken a a show off but what he does he takes the whole three hour episode of free talk live and condense it down to about a half hour and gives you kinda the highlights of every show i find them on. Soundcloud dot com. But you're pod catcher if you just type in f. t. l. digest your pod catcher should be able to grab those so if you ever find yourself falling behind on the program you can just catch up with these quick thirty minute episodes of free talk live kind of touch on the main points and are sort of the highlights of the show that riley puts together for us. So thank you riley for doing that. I want to kind of take a take a turn here. I don't have a fresh segue for how to get from chauvin in the national guard to does coin. I know how words twenty. I believe the correct answer is it's four twenty man twenty minutes leave you have to use the word man at the end in order to qualify so no points for you this from bloomberg our finance dot yahoo dot com. Looks like it could be both find. Those coin retreats after topping ford and kraft in market value. That's pretty impressive. Well i am from the old school. I when cryptocurrency currency was first coming up. There were there. Were like three. Four crypto currencies. There was bitcoin. Btc there was light coin l. Tc there was a theory. Him e. t. h. And then there was doj now does at the time was a joke. It's kind of it. Kind of still is true but for it i mean this is how seriously you guys should be taking cryptocurrency that somebody created a joke called doj clean. And it's doing well see. I think what happened. When i came out is that it didn't cost much as bitcoin. But large chunks were laid out into the realm of crypto collectors. And it just. It's a great platform. I think For someone to rumor at like elon. Musk and just tweet about it. And then all of a sudden blows up and Interesting yeah well. I look as like the the mega coined. The megadeath coin. That's come out. And i think i don't know what was the that was the nfc non fungible token it was eighteen thousand dollars. Yeah but it. It's going to be a coin. I mean it's going to be a tradable coin at some point it's it's just. One singular token that contains a piece of artwork that could be sold or traded. Well that's cool. But i mean you could could split that at now actually. You can't oh okay. Well that sucks. That's kind of the whole idea behind the nfl. Fungible tokens is that it represents a real world piece of art or at a piece of art itself. Whether it's audio like a song. I think kevin smith is making a movie. That's going to be an nf t and so whoever buys it can do whatever they want with the movie. Thank you for themselves and just watch it and never let anybody else or they can release it to theaters if they want to. They can do whatever they want because they by the nf t so it. It's like i don't i say this. New applications with crypto. They don't pretend to understand the mechanics of non-renewable tokens. I tell you that sometimes the world of art will find a new and interesting use for technology and that is what will propel the technology further We see that all the time particularly with digital technology as soon as digital technology came along it changed the world of making records and making albums. No longer did you have to actually cut and splice physical taped together with other pieces of tape and get it just right and if you screwed up oh well you're fired because we're going to hire some other guy who's better than take no now you could just do it all on your computer and if you screwed up you can undo it and that kind of thing digital technology changed music first and foremost so it wouldn't surprise me to see an our application on the blockchain change art fundamentally you know i'm just waiting for somebody like banks to start doing. Nafta's something like that to like. Give it if it is legit. I think somebody like that could certainly help drive it. We're just getting into art. I can imagine all the possibilities now. Yes we've gone tangent if you'd like to join us six zero three two eight three six one six zero. What kind of tangent would you like.

Your customers love it and everyone in town. We'll talk about your store being the bitcoin store and it's just fun. Get the free app and start. Earning bitcoin at your business now. Any pay x. dot com. That's any pay x. dot com. If if you're not convinced yet that you know. Bitcoin and crypto currency isn't a way to save your money. We had some recent news of that. Bitcoin became the best performing asset of the decade. It's true but You're getting a bit ahead of. Oh sorry. I just want to kind of reach and branch it with that. No it's fine. It's true. I have this article that says bitcoin becomes the best performing asset of the decade returning ten times. More than the nasdaq one hundred amazing. I'm sorry the nasdaq one hundred. I get a little dyslexic when it comes to. That's the name of the Stock trading hub on gte gta. Five nasdaq not sack. A but before we get to the best performing asset of the decade. We were talking about this joke. Coin talk named does coin which retreated after topping ford and kraft in market value. Those are a couple of pretty mighty large companies for little joke. Coin to top right even beat If theory i'm in terms of like mark activity recently. I mean ford found on the road dead. Fix or repair. Daily that to Is a government subsidized company. right And they they basically couldn't survive without the government and stealing from you in office But doj is not backed by the government and funded by your stolen tax dollars on any way shape or form. This has for a crypto currency created as a joke does coin finds itself in some serious company after a hundred percent rally in the past week the total value of all circulating doj coin in the world briefly rose to as much as fifty billion dollars according to data provider coin market cap dot com the digital token later retreated by about twenty percent tuesday reducing its market value by around ten billion from the high man. Go does its doj day. If you guys didn't know either. I don't know about that. But the surge had made it bigger than the market cap of ford motor company and kraft heinz company and nearly equal to twitter. Inc the platform where elon. Musk and mark. Cuban have promoted the shiba inu. Themed meam coin. You can't make this up this. This is news. That's too good to be made up. I don't think it's good news at all. I mean i think this is like this is like the closest equivalent. we have to tulips. In the crypto. In crypto fear. Unlike you know nothing. It's i mean it's a mean coin. It's not being. It's not backed by anthony. You can't make contracts or whatever it doesn't have the same institutional support a bitcoin does and yet you have a lot of people who are who are getting into it. I knew to crypto currency. Who wanna make a quick buck and then win in. You inevitably doj going. Does crash people are going to get upset. We're going blame it on crypto. We're gonna beg. We're gonna lose more money than naked afford and you're gonna beg the government to regulate all of it. So it's what they call dumb money and it ruins ruins markets. I don't think this is a good thing at all in terms of cryptocurrency. I don't think it's done. I think it's great. I think i'm sorry. Not not not the currency itself. You know what's a meme coins jokes about the people. Who are you know. Some of the people putting a. Yeah it's like the people chasing the the musk's tweets. Yeah exactly. yeah for buying the news. I agree it's buyer. Beware this is the free market. Unlike any other free market that you know you might think exists there is actually only one free market and that is the black market it is really the only free market that exists i like the gray market's markets are fun. I would put crypto currency in the grey market category myself. Unless you're talking about real privacy coins coins that are being developed specifically for privacy Everything else falls in the grey market the does coin falls into. I don't even know man like the clown market right. Yeah yeah like you might get lucky. I it might be the closest thing to a crypto slot machine. Well no. I think they actually have those somewhere. But like you can lose everything if you put everything into it you can just be careful. People know what you're doing before you do it and then be prepared to lose that and the people who are pushing it right alon mosque. Mark cuban right what they have in common deavere billionaires. They can afford to lose money. If you're on a joke investment. I compared to university in the news especially now with the virus right when so you know for so much economic devastation. Going on it's being unacknowledged right. People are going to be more desperate than ever going to want to find a way to get rich quick. And it's just gonna lead to a lot of disappointment. I believe now just thinking about that says for the rest of the market know not not talking about cryptocurrency but just like the markets in general all of the businesses and companies out. There that that this isn't a big deal for like the lan and who's the other game mark. You mark cuban. This isn't a big deal for them to like just sort of play around with something that may or may not increase Isn't a big deal for them. Because they do all the time with actual companies that are probably worth even less than does cohen is worth right now. So you have a very good point No one thinks these blue chip stocks are all that comparable to those coin a fringe asset with no real purpose beyond being joke on social media but they similarly but the similarity of their market values underscores the boom in crypto currencies. That's taken wall street by storm. Plumber buying does shows retail investors. Power and crypto. It's all part of the dizzying trajectory for does coin which has delighted followers of so-called but dismayed some crypto enthusiasts. Who worry that it's only adding to the volatility and detracting from its more useful endeavors like decentralized finance. Good point those coin. Prices have rallied recently with fans rallying behind the doj day. Hashtag thank you you celebrate. What celebrate what. The trading day of april twentieth or twenty of course known in cannabis culture is a day for smoking marijuana man. I believe it was the day was created. Though that's why the clinic doj day prices pulled back to around thirty one cents on tuesday. According to claim geico dot com. Meanwhile other crypto currencies have been mired in a slump as euphoria from coin based global inks listing wears off bitcoin. The world's largest token edged up about one percent after falling for four straight days to about fifty six thousand eight hundred. I don't you know this is what i find funny. Situation client base probably the most evil currency company. That i can think of there might be one more evil but there certainly up there right and they're probably the biggest dog when it comes to being a. I've filled out all the proper paperwork to be accompanied with the government. Well why are hold on. You can't call something evil innocuous explanation while they were the first institute. kyc and they. Yeah i off reporting on You know they gave up a bunch of customer information to the government after saying they weren't going to okay they are him and then they did and we didn't give it all. We only gave sons. Now screw you you gave salmon. I'm not doing business with you anymore. so yes coin base Very evil company. Do not keep any money on clean base if you can avoid it put it on. I'm not a financial wizard. I'm not a legal person but I recommend that you put it. Either in a custodial wallet or in some sort of a hardware while. it's not your keys. Not your money is the rule of crypto currency. If you don't know what your keys our odds are you. Don't own your crypto currency. And somebody else can walk away with it tomorrow. Decentralize your assets do not keep them centralize on In the corporate hands basically as my suggestion print it out and put it in a safe. So i think i was trying to make a larger and larger. Point is this does coin. A meam coin can have this insane market effects. Where like just some rumors. Some famous people talking about it makes go up in value claim base trying to be like a business that bridges regular finance to crypto-currency announced. Its ipo and cryptocurrencies crash. That's another way you know. Coin base is evil. Six zero three two eight three six one six zero hour number. Three of free talk live is on the way. There are lots of ways to listen to freetalklive.

And vincent more at dot sub stack dot com nice. I've i've read as many articles on air that have been published on sub staggered by. We found you know through our feeds with the sub stack oss tags so yeah definitely a cool use of social media. We've been talking a bit about well the joke coined the doj coin. And how it rallied. And there's even a hashtag for april twentieth. Four twenty which is known in cannabis culture as a day for smoking marijuana days today but prices also pulled back on those day. A meanwhile other cryptocurrencies have been mired in a slump. And i was getting to the point of how i find it. Funny that some rich folk can make some rumors memes. Make some jokes about doj coin. And we see that c. sharp spike in value. But when this i'm calling it. An evil company coin based global inc decided to go public. If in this weird not usual way of going public either some real weird stuff surrounding how. They did that and what they did that. I also don't like but nevertheless seems that you would think that would be a boon to the crypto currency market but instead the crypto currency market seems to have gone the other way with that announcement of coin based global inc going public. So very interesting stuff. All that being said and apologies if this particular ah bit has been covered on free. Talk live before. This article is dated march sixteenth. So this was the actual day of the raid here on the free talk live studios as well as many other locations and the rest of the crypto. Six this says. Bitcoin becomes the best performing asset of the decade returning ten times. More then nasdaq one hundred. I don't believe that was much of a coincidence that all these things are happening. And just after the raid They wanna make sure that the activists are not in control of this and that they want to maintain the status quo go public on the market. And you know. I feel like a coin base could easily manipulate or smidgen here in. There's an liable actually having a certain amount of assets that there's claiming to have I know that it's still early. Times for the crypto currency. We are still in the infancy if you will of the technology yes. It's over a decade old but as far as what it can do the potential that it has the things that can be developed upon it and around it and the whole entire echo structure that it is going to end up. Creating is just a tiny little thing in some developers imagination right now. Anything your local bank with make you have an account with. They're likely already using the blockchain to secure their own numbers so to think that they wouldn't just switch over to crypto. You're gonna you're not looking close of this is definitely the future And now you can eliminate the bank. Come on guys step up. Let's go. what i find interesting is response of a major banks. Had i remember like enough music. Twenty seventeen when bitcoin was that. It's a previous all time high. You had people like a j. p. morgan's jamie dimon say all sorts of terrible things about bitcoin. How awful it was vinny. Crashes an an now presumably. Now they've had time to buy it up on the cheap now. You have j. p. morgan investing in bitcoin chamie diamond loves bitcoin. And it's like that with the rest of them so they waited you know they they You know poisoned the well but You know bottled it all up at afterwards and that's sort of the activity of what we call. Whales in the crypto currency community. Somebody who has a large amount of any single coin whatever. The the brand of the coin is They can make moves that affect the rest of the market that specific clean because they have well more than fifty percent or some large percent that allows them to sort of create these giant waves in that particular market so this article says after its recent surge to sixty thousand dollars. Bitcoin has become the best performing asset class of the decade. With an annualized return of two hundred and thirty percent data shows what happened. The data which was compiled by ceo of compound capital advisors charlie Bilello examined the returns of the seventeen best performing asset classes since two thousand eleven bitcoins cumulative gain since then had exceeded twenty million per cent slot. Now i'm no econ major I'm i've done some reading on austrian economics which to me is just economics or at least how economics are supposed to be anyway but most of the financial advice that you will get from people is something like hey you know if your investment gets you somewhere between five and ten percent. That's really good. That's just super you've done really well for yourself. You know you get a return. A gains exceeding twenty million percent apparently far outpacing the cumulative gains of the nasdaq one hundred and large in. Us large-caps which recorded returns a five hundred forty one and two hundred and eighty two percents respectively. So those are still some big gains but dwarfed by twenty million percents cumulatively of of the crypto currencies on an annualized scale bitcoin return two hundred and thirty percent ten times higher than the nasdaq one hundred which was the second best performing asset class for the same period Us large-caps recorded annualized return of fourteen percent. High yield bonds gained five point four percent while gold returned one point five percent. Wow gorgeous. Knuckling anywhere i mean golden stable though yeah or at least as stable as you know a rare earth mineral can get or. I don't know if i'm saying that right but you know something that comes out the ground that that's been mined for millennia now. Why would any of this matter. As more institutional investors have begun to pay attention to bitcoin as an asset class. There's a market wide speculation that a bitcoin. Etf may soon be a reality in the us and in fact there are people in banks working on these. Etf some training remember what the acronym for etf israeli electronic traded fund attorney Regardless woods call called. All wow is. I wonder what's to talk is supposed nakamoto would think that there's an etf right of for bitcoin. Right neo v establishment system. Yeah sort of against via and also like bitcoin futures to which affect price. That you don't hear too many people talk about Exchange traded fund exchange traded fund. Yes thank you. Thank you So let's say a type of security attracts attraction index sector commodity but which can be purchased or sold on stock exchange as the same as a regular stock right. so it's a a tool. They use to trade in the perceived value of an asset. and i know that The merge chicago mercantile bank was working on an etf. I know that there was another bank. That i can't remember the name of my head working on. Et fs One of my favorite bitcoin authors andrea. Santapaloa was actually hired as a consultant. I think for the doug merck when they were talking about the etf. So we're still in the infancy and this thing has outclassed. Well everything this decade. So i'm no financial advisor but if you got a little bit of savings consider putting some into crypto currency. That's my personal advice. I'm not a lawyer. Six zero three two eight three six one six.

Cattle Mutilation Pt. 2

"This episode features discussion of animal mutilation that some people may find offensive listener discretion is advised, especially for children under thirteen. On June twenty seventh nineteen Seventy-eight Steve Ferguson was working on a farm in Bentonville, Arkansas, when something strange caught his eye. He discovered an eerie altar of carefully stacked stones in the center of the ominous structure was a cow skull, the empty sockets stared back at Ferguson. He was terrified, but couldn't turn away stepping closer. He noticed that some of the stones had strange symbols on them. He had never seen anything like it two months later. Ferguson came across a second altar, even stranger than the first a plastic human skull, and a large knife, or in the middle once again, Erie symbols had been written on the surrounding rocks. When Ferguson looked closer, he saw a warning painted in white letters. It read Zydus wrath. Is upon you. The Benton county sheriff's department began doing research in hopes of deciphering, the symbols on the stones of the altar. They believed that recent cattle mutilations in the area might be connected, the department found that the symbols matched with the FIBA now. Alphabet, also known as the witches alphabet, a theory developed that the people who made the altars reusing the animal organs as an offering to dark supernatural forces for the first time you follow just had to content with the idea that the culprits behind cattle, mutilation, might not becoming from the depths of outer space, but from the pits of hell. Are we alone? Have we been alone? Will we be alone stories of alien visitation have been ingrained in human history alien life may not be confirmed, but our obsession with it can't be ignored welcome to extraterrestrial apar- cast original, I'm Tim. And I'm Bill every Tuesday we visit the marvelous and strange stories about our encounters with beings from another world. We're aware that some of these tales may seem completely unbelievable others may seem all too real, but these stories shed light on human nature, human beliefs, and human psychology and each story has garnered, hundreds, if not millions of true, believers, and for that reason we think they're worth exploring. This is our second episode on the cattle, mutilation, phenomenon today will follow the escalation of cattle mutilations in the US and the F B I's resistance to have any involvement. Will also detail. Why extraterrestrials and satanic cults were the most popular theories and why we are no closer to discovering the truth. Then we were decades ago at par cast. We're grateful for you. Our listeners, you allow us to do it. We love let us know how we're doing reach out on Facebook and Instagram at par cast and Twitter at par cast network. And if you enjoy today's episode the best way to help us is to leave a five star review wherever you're listening. It really does help. We also now have merchandise had depar- cast dot com slash merch. For more information. Last episode. We followed the nineteen sixty seven death of lady, a horse that was mutilated in alamosa Colorado, lady's death was the first case of animal mutilation linked to extraterrestrials ladies head and neck were stripped of all flesh and tissue. She was also missing her brain and organs. There was no trace of blood in or near her body, and no tracks to explain who did it the horse belong to rancher Nelly Lewis, who believed that extraterrestrials were behind her horses unexplainable death due to the frequent UFO sightings. She and other towns. People had witnessed lady's death was just one example, in a pattern of graphic and gruesome, livestock deaths reported by ranchers stories of cattle mutilation, escalated throughout the nineteen seventies. But ranchers law enforcement, and the US government were. Unable to find an explanation as to what was causing the mysterious deaths has the stories continue to emerge. Ranchers reported seeing black helicopters sometimes referred to as phantom helicopters at the sites of the mutilations before, or just after they occurred, the role that these mysterious helicopters played in the death of the cattle is unclear. But the connection between the two is impossible to ignore at the first multi-state mutilation, conferences held in Albuquerque. New Mexico on April twentieth. Nineteen seventy nine Tom Adams, a Texas, researcher stated that there were over two hundred incidents where unmarked and unidentified choppers were seen near mutilation sites. Some ranchers had not only seen choppers near the sites, but had actually seen helicopters airlifting the cattle into the sky and carrying them away at night. Other ranchers mentioned heloc. Copters attempting to run their cars off the road by flying dangerously close to the ground, farmers believed that the government was experimenting on their cattle and were trying to hush it up to most law enforcement agencies. This theory, obviously, didn't hold much water. If the government wanted to experiment on cattle could they not procure their own? Would they not want to keep the corpses for further examination and study? Why would they need to go to all the trouble of sneaking around with helicopters at night? This theory is obviously, an outgrowth of the ranchers suspicious, attitudes toward the government officials who wouldn't take their concerns, seriously, ranchers were worried about how they were going to survive another year if their animals were being wiped out by unknown circumstances. Although the helicopter explanations started, as a government, conspiracy theory, some believe that the choppers were connected to extraterrestrial involvement. Those that supported the alien theory belief that the helicopters were actually spacecraft that could change shape, the extraterrestrials would transform their craft to look like government helicopters. Another possible explanation was that the helicopters were the US government's attempt to remove any evidence, aliens left behind from these mutilations, if the government was aware extraterrestrials were behind the mutilations. They might want to cover them up, whether the helicopters were vehicles in disguise, or government issue, choppers ranchers viewed them as a direct threat to their livestock and livelihood. Some farmers decided to take out their frustration on the helicopters and armed themselves planning on shooting at the choppers in order to protect their property. In August nineteen seventy-five Floyd. Haskell a fifty nine year old United States Senator from Colorado decided to take action though, he had been a Republican for most of his political career, Haskell, made a bold move in one thousand nine hundred seventy when he became a democrat after deciding, he could no longer support, the Vietnam, war, Haskell's, Senate win in nineteen seventy seventy-two over the Republican incumbent, Gordon Allitt was an upset having received votes from traditionally Republican rural areas of Colorado Housego felt he needed to honor this vote of confidence by taking the concerns of his constituents seriously, and one of their chief concerns was cattle mutilation, and supposed- government helicopters that were somehow connected. So in August nineteen seventy-five Senator Haskell asked the FBI for help in Colorado alone. There had been one hundred thirty case. Of livestock, mutilation, and he was tired of the problem being ignored. The Colorado bureau of investigation a law enforcement agency that performs forensic and laboratory services and criminal investigations had been looking into the mutilations along with local law enforcement, but had made little progress, Haskell proposed that the F B involvement would allow there to be unified front and hoped that real progress could be made on the issue. The only problem was that the FBI had previously stated that the killings of cattle were not within their jurisdiction. Ostensibly these were unrelated isolated incidents. But Haskell believe that the problem was at a dire level and that the bureau needed to reconsider according to journalist, Nick Redfern Haskell then issued a press release letting the media know of the bureau's position in early September. Nineteen seventy five the Denver post reiterated the importance and urgency of the matter and push the issue further by. Adding, quote consider this because of the gun. Happy frame of mind. Developing in eastern, Colorado, where most of the incidents have been occurring the US bureau of land management, BLM has had to cancel a helicopter inventory of its lands in six counties. The Elim officials are simply afraid that their helicopters might be shot down by ranchers and others frightened by cattle deaths shortly thereafter special agents row sack and semester of the Colorado FBI visited the offices of the Denver post in response to the article the meetings, seemed like a promising step in getting some real answers for ranchers. It seemed like Haskell's tactic had worked, and the FBI was finally ready to get on board. However, the meeting ended with the agents doubling down on their previous statement, the matter was out of their jurisdiction. The meeting was less about the FBI. Trying to meet in the middle and more about them asserting their power. They weren't going to be publicly shamed by the Denver post. However, the FBI's investigative authority is the broadest of all federal law enforcement agencies. It's likely that the F B I could have investigated the cases at this time, but was choosing not to Housego believe that this was the situation and was determined not to give up on September eleventh. Nineteen seventy five Haskell contacted Clarence m Kelley at the FBI Clarence had been director of the FBI since nineteen Seventy-three when he was appointed by then president Richard Nixon Kelly was the second ever director of the FBI and had excelled at every position he'd previously held he was a man who followed protocol. So if Haskell wanted him to make an exception and investigate the mutilations he needed a solid reason in September nineteen seventy-five Haskell had received a call from Dane Edwards editor of the brush, banner in brush. Rush, Colorado Edwards had been writing for the banner since may nineteen seventy five when he had moved from Texas to Colorado. Specifically to report on the cattle mutilations. He hoped to collect stories for a future book that would spur the public into action in one of his first articles Edwards wrote that the brush banner was one of the few newspapers that was investigating the cattle mutilations not just reporting on them shortly after publishing. These articles Edwards started receiving strange phone calls in the middle of the night. When Edwards would answer. He was met with a low voice, the voice on the other end would threaten him telling him to stop the investigation if he didn't the price would be his life, the calls, seemed to become more frequent and horrifying one particularly disturbing. Call even went so far as to threaten his beloved puppies days later Edwards. Puppies went missing. Then one night Edwards came home from a long day at work as he walked up to his door. What he saw made him. Stop in his tracks. Someone had thrown red paint on his front door. But when he walked closer, he realized that it wasn't paint at all. It was blood. When calling Senator Haskell Edwards shared all of these details, as well as something else, he recently learned after some recent mutilations in his area. Ranchers reported seeing what they claim to be US. Army helicopters in the sky afterwards Senator Haskell hoped that the unidentified helicopters would fall under the F B I's jurisdiction forcing them to look into the mutilations. He also was genuinely concerned over the threats made against Edwards and asked the FBI to look into those as well. The F B I told Haskell, they would pass along the information to their Denver office, who would follow the situation Housego politely. Thank them for their help, but didn't hold his breath. Meanwhile, the Colorado bureau of investigation found that Edwards had made a lot of enemies while conducting his investigation. He had been all over Colorado spending nights at ranches with a right. I full across his lap waiting to catch the culprits behind the mutilations earlier that summer in an attempt to ward off, satanic cults, and stop the cattle mutilations Edwards sought out the help of a witch's coven, because even gave him too protective symbols Edwards, published the two symbols on the front page of the July. Nineteen seventy five edition of the brush banner, the CBI believed that this most likely angered not only cult members but readers of the paper, who didn't want anything to do with the Colt. Perhaps most aggressively on September tenth nineteen seventy five right around the time of his phone call to Haskell Edwards campaign for the truth came to a head when he wrote a scathing condemnation of Colorado. Governor Richard Lamm, who he believed wasn't doing enough to address the mutilations. It's possible that Haskell was aware of this and was motivated to take Edwards. Seriously for fear of a similar reprisal lamb met with Edwards in October nineteen seventy five and afterward was quoted as saying there is some real antagonism between our office and the banner a couple of months past, and then on December fifth nineteen seventy-five Edwards wife filed a missing persons report. He had disappeared rumors abounded. Of course. Some thought that perhaps the cult had made good on its threats other. Others wondered if the governor hadn't sought revenge for the scathing article, however, a December nineteen Seventy-nine investigation into the matter later published in think magazine revealed that Edwards was actually fired from the banner in October nineteen seventy-five though, that was around the time of his quarrel with the governor the publisher of the paper claimed he was terminated for quotes poor business practices. It seemed he owed money to multiple people, including those at a Denver, motel where he had stayed on his way out of the state in December all evidence suggests that he fled back to Texas to avoid jail. And so one of the chief proponents of the cattle noodle investigation in Colorado was proven to be a fraud were his stories about threatening phone calls blood on his door and army helicopters. Even true years past Haskell remained. I'm in favor of investigating cattle mutilation despite being burned by Edwards. He still had many constituents claiming that the phenomenon was a problem finally on April twentieth. Nineteen Seventy-nine Senator Harrison Schmitt of New Mexico and US. Attorney for New Mexico are Thompson held the conference on livestock, mutilation, in Albuquerque by the end of the conference, the district attorney in Santa Fe, New Mexico announced that a law enforcement assistance administration grant had been given to fund a special investigative unit to look into the numerous cattle, mutilations finally, the Justice department authorized, the F B I office in Albuquerque to get involved in the investigation due to the mutilations occurring on native American lands. The investigation launched in may nineteen seventy nine and was called operation animal, mutilation. It was time to get answers.

Senator the FBI finally launched an investigation into the cattle mutilation phenomenon in may nineteen Seventy-nine. It was funded by a grant of over forty four thousand dollars from the law enforcement assistance administration. The year long investigation was led by F B I agent, Kenneth Rommel, and was concluded on January. Fifteenth nineteen eighty Rommel determined in his final report that the mutilated livestock, died of natural causes and were then consumed by scavengers. He believed that in thousands of cases, farmers had simply misdiagnosed their animal's deaths in the report. Rommel wrote that quote, during my investigation of the one hundred seventeen mutilations that have been reported in New Mexico since nineteen seventy five I have not found one single. Case which after careful scrutiny of available evidence could be confirmed as a classic mutilation, Rommel, even went as far as to say that police officers had perpetuated deliberate hoaxes and filed falsified reports his recommendation was that no further federal funds. Be wasted on researching the matter Rommel, was a skeptic and remained a skeptic throughout the investigation in a nineteen ninety four interview he did for the new Mexican Romo was quoted as saying, I have a certain amount of sympathy for people whose lives are, so dull and boring that they have to get their kicks by fantasizing about the decomposition of dead animals, those that were aware of Rommel's inherent bias, believe the investigation was over before it, started house in Hudson, a writer for skeptical aid in two thousand fifteen was quoted as saying the investigation amounted to little more than collections of. Newspaper clippings, many UFO believers felt that the investigation was a sham and that the mutilations were never taken seriously from the start some believed that Rommel was hired to debunk the theories behind cattle mutilations in order to stop the growing media frenzy. Although there is no proof of this. The results of Rommel's investigation did just that was the FBI investigation, a ruse in order to appease, ranchers and finally, put an end to reports of cattle mutilation, or was the F B I covering up the existence of extraterrestrials. Or were they perhaps covering up something equally? Sinister cattle mutilations in the nineteen seventies had ranchers in a panic desperate for answers while some theorized that aliens were behind the livestock deaths others believed that the culprits were human since the post-war years of the nineteen fifties. The United States had been experiencing a rise in right wing Christian evangelism. Many were adopting a very literal version of the faith in which Satan, and his minions were always right around the corner, ready to drag you down to hell. This trend was motivated in part by the rise of television and the preachers who could now sermon is across the airwaves. By the nineteen seventies, the beginnings of a moral satanic panic were in play. Some believe that Satan worshippers were using the body parts and blood of mutilated cattle for satanic sacrifices. However, there was no real evidence that validated. These theories brutal killings such as the one thousand nine hundred sixty nine Manson, murders only intensified, these fears due to the highly publicized, and gruesome nature of the Manson murders. Won- forcement across the US was on high alert for any potential cult related violence. Here is Linda Deutsch retired AP special correspondent, who covered the Manson trials discussing the lasting impact of the murders. Kyler culture. It wasn't just that he ordered the killings of seven helpless, people for no apparent reason except that he was nuts. He was Kadett and he had a vision that he wanted to be same as a singer, and he never could get a contract. And so the killings in a way where the his revenge on Hollywood nineteen seventy-five Donald e flick jour- an agent in the US treasuries alcohol, tobacco and firearms division, certainly felt the impact of the Manson murders. Much of his job over the last few years had revolved around tracking cult activity. He had even investigated a potential cult cattle mutilation connection. But with few results, his first investigation into cattle mutilations was in cooperation with Allen Hynek a Northwestern University, astronomer and. Former UFO consultant to the US air force's project blue book Hynek wanted to see if there was a connection between cattle mutilations in UFO's since flicking, her had an interest in UFO sightings, and had personally done his own research. He was an obvious choice. But ultimately, he found no connection. But then in January, nineteen seventy-five flicking was contacted by UFO expert and Jerome Clark who had been sent a letter from Albert Kenneth Bankston Bankston was an inmate at Fort Leavenworth penitentiary in Kansas, serving twenty five years for armed robbery. The inmate claim to have information about a satanic cult whose members had been engaging an animal mutilation, Jerome Clark, along with other extraterrestrial believers and researchers had a vested interest in there, not being a connection between the mutilations aliens. They wanted. To believe that if aliens were real they weren't the sort of beings that would torture cattle satanic cults had already been floated in certain circles as being behind the cattle mutilations. And so when flick injure her Bankston had information he was eager to hear the details for himself. Flicking jer sat down in a cold, dimly lit room across from Bankston Bankston described a cult that brutally mutilated animals and use their body parts as sacrifices to Satan their goal was to create hell on earth. Bankston seemed nervous afraid he was worried that if any of the inmates got wind of what he was sharing than the members of the cult would find out and come after him in order to protect himself Bankston requested to be transferred to a jail in Minnesota flicking couldn't let anything happen, the Bankston his information was detailed and consistent. So he had Bankston transferred to a jail in Minnesota and proceeded to interrogate the inmate for months. This was the first real evidence that linked cults to animal, mutilation, and flicking jer wasn't about to let it slip through his fingers Bankston said. That a satanic cult out of Texas was the culprits. They call themselves the sons of Satan, while the called mostly targeted animals for their sacrifices Bankston said that they were planning to start sacrificing humans by the end of nineteen seventy five this confirmed a fear among ranchers, who believed that colts were behind the deaths of their cattle, if they were capable of performing such horrific acts on innocent livestock. What was to prevent them from coming after humans next? Bankston detailed how the Colt committed the mutilations in order to make it look as if extraterrestrials were behind the murders. I the cult would tranquilize the animal with fence cycling. Dean, also known as PCP the members would then use large pieces of cardboard to step on the ground in order to leave. No tracks while approaching the animal. They then used veterinary syringes to extract the blood, the cult members would then slice open the animal, and remove the organs and body parts that they wanted to use in sacrificial rituals, Bankston gave flick injure the name of an ex cult member. Another Leavenworth inmate named Dan, Dugan, who he believed would have more details Dugan was transferred to the same small town jail in Minnesota, as Bankston while both inmates were being interrogated, investigators attempted to catch them an ally. But both parties told identical stories. Dugan actually reported that he had been part of a human sacrifice that occurred in nineteen sixty five in Kozak Nebraska. He claimed that four teenagers were passing by the campgrounds of the cult the cult members tranquilize, the young men and proceeded to give them large doses of PCP they treated the teenagers with as little regard as when they murdered cattle but cult members cut open, the boys, removing their organs and draining the blood from their bodies. They then put the remains in sacks and toss them into a gravel pit. Flicking immediately contacted Cho's, add law enforcement in hopes of recovering. The supposed boys bodies, but none were found regardless Dugan and Bankston became an asset to flick injure providing him with fourteen names of people that were in the sons of Satan. Many of the names, flicking jer related to law enforcement were already being looked into as possibly having connections to cults this further validated Duke and Bankston stories, Dugan and banks and also provided flick with a list of people the cult planned on targeting primarily notable, liberal politicians, including Hubert Humphrey, a former democratic vice president, and Minnesota Senator the Rangers in Kilgore Texas were in the process of interrogating. People with suspected satanic cult connections and had learned that a large gathering was planned for August nineteen seventy five the group was. Known as the church of Satan, these two details corroborated. What Dugan and Bankston had been telling flicking her for months. It seemed like law enforcement was closing in on the cultists. This was reinforced when in early nineteen seventy-five flick. Injure began receiving death threats every time his phone rang panic would set in he would nervously answer and was met with an eerie voice threatening his life. One day flicking came home to find his door was smeared with blood despite being in a different state flick, injures threats mimicked those of Dan Edwards, the writer of the brush banner, who we discussed earlier, could this be further proof that cults were behind the mutilations Dugan and Bankston emphasize that the sons of Satan were a group of powerful, and extremely wealthy people as frightening as the threats were? For flicking believed that they only proved he was getting closer to the truth. But Dubinin Bankston were about to make flicking question everything they told him on may thirty first nineteen seventy five a few months after the investigation had begun a guard walked down the block of cells in the Minnesota prison as he checked to make sure everything was quiet. He stopped at Kenneth Bankston cell for guard couldn't believe what he saw Bankston was gone. He had escaped. Up next. We discover whether there really is a link between cattle mutilations, and satanic, cults and learn whether this phenomenon is still going on today now the conclusion of our story. On may thirty first nineteen seventy-five Kenneth Bankston an inmate in the state of Minnesota escaped from his cell, he had been an informant to Donald e flicking her a US treasury agent and was helping him to prove that there was a connection between the wave of recent cattle mutilations and satanic cults. This wasn't the first time Bankston had attempted to escape from jail. In January of nineteen sixty nine Bankston was one of four prisoners who carved soap in the shape of a pistol and took a sheriff in two deputies hostage in Mississippi Bankston ended up, surrendering after a night of rain and freezing temperatures. But luckily, this time Bankston was captured the same day. He tried to escape and thrown back in his cell without any violence. But then impossibly the very next day flick injures other informant. Dan? Dugan went missing as well. Had he been abducted by these sinister colts? He was informing on as it turned out the explanation was nothing. So exciting is that Dugan had merely escaped of his own accord, and had attempted to hide from the law? He was on the run for a month until he was eventually captured and put behind bars once again flicking your felt like a fool, he had allowed both men to manipulate him into putting them in lower security, prisons worse yet. Their stories about sensational colts sacrificing cows, and humans alike were proving to lead to few concrete arrests as it turned out the church of Satan weren't evil devil worshippers, but an atheist group, dedicated to human determine him, it seemed that everyone involved had been caught up in satanic panic and the two inmates. Use that to position themselves. Selves toward an escape attempt. And so all major investigations into cattle mutilation in the nineteen seventies lead to dead ends general UFO and cult hysteria had led even the most rational law enforcement agents, down a rabbit hole of invisible, helicopters, satanic rituals and abducted cows. But in the modern era where belief in aliens in secret cults has perhaps died down some improved understanding of livestock, biology, and the surrounding science allows us to consider more rational explanations. There are many silent but deadly diseases that can result in the sudden death of cattle but could natural factors really produce the horrifying cattle carcasses found by ranchers. Scientists, as well as the F B. I believe the answer is yes, there are a couple of explanations for what might cause. The mysterious missing body parts on mutilated livestock, for one insects and animals, often, eat the mucous membranes and the softest parts of dead animals, and second after an animal dies. It's skin quickly becomes dehydrated resulting in the thinning out of tissue. This could lead to loss of genitalia ears in other loose tissue around the head the surgical like incisions often found on mutilated livestock could be made by the teeth of predators. Another cause could be bloating a natural symptom of decomposition that can lead skin to split along straight lines. Resembling precision cuts carcass skin tearing also exposes the organs making it that much easier for scavengers to feast on them as for the. Lack of blood on mutilated livestock, when an animal dies, the heart stops pumping blood throughout the body once that happens, the blood settles, and coagulates, and if scavengers then come and tear at what's left of the animal. There may be no blood left at all. And while some claim that the lack of animal prints around dead, livestock suggest the animals are dropped from the sky or something similar. It's more likely that the animal prints are simply worn away by the elements before ranchers find them. Revisiting the original wife stock mutilation case that of lady, the horse, we can see where many of these more rational, explanations might play a role and Furthermore, we can see how ladies owner Nellie Lewis was very biased in her approach to discovering the truth from the moment, Nellie found out, lady had died under mysterious circumstances. She was desperate to get to the bottom of it. She claimed she only cared about the truth. And yet, her point of view may already have been tainted alien spacecraft sightings were common in the area, flashing lights and small spacecraft were often reported to local law enforcement Nellie had seen her fair share of UFO's and was known to sit on her porch. Hoping to catch a glimpse of something supernatural in an interview with Don hard. Now, his nephew he recalls. Nellie fascination with the frightening. Ng in strange. Dodd is quoted as saying she had seen strange lights in the valley. So right away. She wanted to say it was extraterrestrial or something from outer space that did this, maybe with a laser beam or some kind of technology. We don't know about, but Nelly his own family was not nearly as convinced mysterious animal injuries are part of running any farm or ranch. In fact, Berle Louis. No. As husband recalls that, Harry king. Nell, his brother, had a bull that mysteriously went blind a month before ladies death. He also owned a CAF that began to have developmental issues as it grew its hooves became deformed resulting in the CAF having a difficult time, walking Harry thought it was awed, but didn't bother to have a veterinarian come take a look, Berle recalled. At one day. Harry just took the calf and shot. It then dragged it into the bushes, and left it there, Harry. And. Rural were able to see these as acceptable losses. The men were more focused on what to do about preserving the rest of the livestock. They were perfectly content moving on from unusual circumstances, hairy maintained that lady had simply been struck by lightning. If Nellie hadn't kept pushing the extraterrestrial theory, it's reasonable to believe that lady may never have become a new story at all. But of course, that's not what happened. And as the story of lady strange death began to spread ladies, carcass became a tourist attraction, and while Nellie siblings were caught up on the ranch attempting to keep spectators at bay Nellie was giving an interview to Pearl Nicklaus at the valley courier. Nellie potentially enjoyed the attention. She was getting locally and wanted to see how far she could push the limits of her fifteen minutes of fame. Her strange untimely suicide suggested that she was more. Doubled than anyone knew Nellie was an enigma. And she was not a reliable source of extraterrestrial information. With most of our cattle mutilation discussion being confined to the nineteen sixties and nineteen. Seventies, we're left to wonder whether the phenomenon continues to be a significant problem today, while there have been thousands upon thousands of cases of cattle mutilation throughout the decades. And from all across the US reports have slowly, decreased since the late, nineteen seventies, a large factor that played into that decrease in new stories was the FBI investigation in nineteen eighty that determined neither colts, nor extraterrestrials were behind the mutilations additionally, the general UFO mania of the nineteen sixties and nineteen seventies likely sensationalize the issue at the time and made more people report mutilations and put forth extraterrestrials as the culprits, just like Nelly. Their point of view was biased from the beginning because the F B I concluded that the deaths were natural. The coverage of the topic eventually became less exciting the cases were all relatively the same, and with the alien theory, debunks, the story didn't carry the same weight and so- cattle mutilations still occur today. But ranchers are less inclined to cite supernatural causes. On December eighteenth two thousand sixteen in Hutchinson. Kansas Abol was killed and mutilated. It's genitals removed with precise cuts a few weeks. Later on January, first a pregnant cow was found dead. One of her eyes was missing along with the eyelids certainly this was a more precise cut than a predator could make a veterinarian believed the I was removed with a laser leaving the local sheriff's stumped while no one insisted aliens were behind the mutilations. They didn't believe natural predators would be able to precisely remove the body parts and like many such cases, that's where the story ends no one ever got to the bottom of who had precisely mutilated the bowl and the cow. It remains unclear then whether nude elections, truly have decreased or if ranchers have simply given up on trying to assign a cause. Examining the facts of cattle, mutilation. We feel we can assign the phenomenon a number from one to ten on the believability scale, the Haskell era reports of government helicopters, appearing at the sites of mutilations seem, especially unbelievable, as we said, if the government was experimenting on cattle couldn't. They just procure their own and wouldn't they perform their experiments in a lab where they could monitor the results, and if the helicopters weren't performing experiments, but were instead covering up evidence of extraterrestrial involvement, wouldn't it make more sense, to remove the lifestyle completely, or at least further disfigure the corpse to douse suspicion? The colts theory, feels similarly, bogus, there was never any evidence, linking real active cult activity to cattle mutilation, Bankston Dugan, some of the only individuals to even claim such a connection. We're. Clearly telling law enforcement what they wanted to hear their attempted escapes from prison prove, they were only ever interested in being moved to lower security, facilities, and finally, the flagship case of the whole phenomenon the case of lady, the horse becomes extremely suspect. When Nellie Lewis is held up to scrutiny with all of this in mind. We give cattle mutilation a three on the believability scale, the sheer volume of cases, leads us to at least give the theory, some credit, but of course, there is likely no one cause of all these livestock deaths predators disease accidents. And yes, human tampering are likely all to blame. But then, again, no one can know, for sure what happens out on the range, if cows could talk, they might tell some strange stories stories that might include.

From the Archives of the United States National Weather Service. The following is directly excerpted from reports of the nineteen eight Nashville Tornado. Quote. At historic Tornado outbreak of at least thirteen tornadoes struck Middle Tennessee on April Sixteenth nineteen ninety eight. Many of these tornadoes for strong or violent and tracked long distances, killing four people and injuring nearly one hundred people while causing hundreds of millions of dollars in damage, the most infamous tornado during outbreak struck downtown, Nashville, blowing out numerous windows and skyscrapers and causing the clubs, some older buildings. This tornado outbreak was unusual in several respects. The event lasted nearly the entire day with the first round of severe weather, beginning very early around four M, central standard time, and the second and more significant round of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes occurring during the afternoon and evening. The tornado went through downtown Nashville at three forty PM and on toward East Nashville Donelson and hermitage. The tornado blew out many windows on office buildings, the nationsbank office towers were one of the hardest hit buildings in Nashville thirty private airplanes were damaged at. Ford Airport. Thirty five buildings in downtown Nashville were red, tagged meaning these buildings were structurally unsound. At, least three hundred homes for damaged in East Nashville. Many homes lost a good part of their roofs. Trees were uprooted. Telephone Poles were knocked down. Saint Ann's Episcopal Church which is well over one hundred years old received major damage uprooted trees damaged roofs, too many homes with the story across Donelson Hermitage. Numerous windows were blown out at the Gaylord building and Donaldson. About half the trees that is over a thousand trees were blown down Andrew Jackson's home. The Hermitage. Mayor Phil Bredesen's close to downtown Nashville on Friday April seventeenth. Many workers had an unscheduled holiday. The downtown area was reopened Monday April twentieth. End Quote. Everyone knows a little something about Nashville the home of country and bluegrass northeast of Memphis. Where rock and roll and rhythm and blues were born, though both might claim it, it's Nashville that gets the title of Music City maybe more rhinestone than diamond of Tennessee a state. The name derived from the Cherokee town of Nasi. Nashville sits in the middle region of the state on rich soil. It's over five hundred square miles and one of the largest cities by land mass in the southeast. In terms of population Nashville proper is home over half a million little. Richard lived in Nashville for years holding as the Tennessee newspaper describes quote long residencies in the famed R&B. Clubs on Jefferson Street.

They seem unless. Online vacation guides are crowded with memorabilia shops to peruse restaurants serving Nashville hot chicken and links to book a seat at the Grand Ole opry your to download a map of music row. Nashville is also home to Tennessee. State University, Fisk University and Mary Medical College all three, historically black colleges and universities. The latter two were founded in the decade after the civil war, and there's also vanderbilt named after an American millionaire who provided its initial endowment. His name is all over town including the various vanderbilt medical facilities that serve the city. It's a music town, a college town, an everlasting tourist attraction and a city that's faced numerous natural disasters. Nashville has seen floods, a collapsed reservoir, tornadoes, fire and heat waves, blizzards and earthquakes when it comes to states of emergency. Nashville Tennessee has been host to more than its fair share of trouble. Nineteen Ninety eight was a particularly bad year. On April Fifteenth April sixteenth of that year, deadly Tornados swept through the southeast. Much of the damage was concentrated in Tennessee and Mississippi on April. Sixteen th at about five PM. Downtown Nashville was hit according to the Atlanta. Journal constitution quote. Tornado roared down music row, sending tourist, running for cover that tornado quote touchdown in Centennial Park before cutting a pack clean through downtown Nashville. The damage was extensive, uprooted trees, crushed power lines, residential homes government buildings. The AJC reported that the tornado even quote, rip the seal off the state flag. It hit retail stores Honky tonks in the football stadium where residents saw parts of the structure quote being tossed around. Let popsicle sticks. A reporter for the Tennessean described. The aftermath is chaotic lights down residents driving recklessly through intersections strewn with debris. At least one hundred people were injured, and one was killed a student from Vanderbilt University. Per the Jackson Sun he was quote crushed underneath the tree in centennial. Park according to the article, there had been no tornado siren to warn residents to take cover. All told Nashville face roughly seven million dollars worth of damage. Different media outlets gave varying totals for the cost in the number of injured, but they all agreed. The city was seriously impacted. A. State of emergency was declared the Boston. Globe reported that then Vice President Al Gore went down to Tennessee to view the aftermath. East Nashville, the hardest hit, saw massive recovery and cleanup efforts in the days following the storm. A twenty, thirteen Tennessee and retrospective recalls the former National Mayor Phil Gresson quote personally directed traffic as cleanup trucks rolled through. The destruction would take weeks to assess. Contain Andrew Perr. And, it wasn't limited to Nashville much of Tennessee, have been hit in the following weeks Tennessee. News was dominated by that storm. The repairs the stretched thin public services the first responders. And maybe that's why. One of the reasons why the body found in North Nashville just a few days before the tornadoes hit got so little press. That discovery came on Monday April thirteenth, nineteen ninety eight, a cool clear morning in Nashville. It was around eight am that someone called the police to report the? The collar lived on Mary Street. A. Dead End Road in North Nashville. The street runs up against interstate to sixty five where patchy woods meet the road barrier and back then there were a few vacant lots at the end of the road to so no direct neighbors where the street ran into the embankment. According to the Tennessean that particular spot was known as a convenient place to abandon strip cars. Mary Street was reportedly popular with sex workers to, and it wasn't unusual for residents to see cars on the street at all hours. Her, the Tennessean residents had heard a car early on the morning of the thirteenth at around five am nothing remarkable there as noted the streets traffic, but as the sun rose, it became evident that something happened left behind something burning. A crime stoppers bulletin published later that summer. A Mary Street residents saw a rolled up beige carpet at the end of her road. It was still smoldering. And wrapped inside that charred material was the body. The victim was so profoundly burned that per the Tennessean first responders could not guess at race, gender or age or cause of death. The fire hadn't spread, but kerosene sprayed on the carpet had created a very intense heat, and yet no one had heard a thing. As reporter John Yates pointed out the traffic from highly to sixty five would probably have drowned out quote more suspicious sounds. Police arrived, and the scene was photographed and processed, but it would take a medical examination to determine more about the victim. The police report is brief quote. The body was found in a prone face up position at the dead end of Mary Street in North. Nashville at the time of this report body could not be identified. Having been burnt beyond recognition, the body was transported episode Bessie for further examination. The case remains open as of April thirteenth nineteen. Ninety eight at fifteen hundred hours. Hours then there were two articles at least that we found published on the discovery of this victim. They are also brief the Tennesseans. Initial report didn't contain the information about the carpet. Likely that detail hadn't been released to the press at the time of publication. Perhaps there would have been a follow up as soon as the coroner's report was in. Had there not been a dramatic change to the Nashville New Cycle? The Tennessee tornadoes came in the case disappeared from the local papers. There was much to report on the state and in Mississippi, and beyond, and so that report from April fourteen remained the only spring coverage. The body found that Mary. Street in that, there were virtually no identifying details nothing to help a family recognize. Their missing loved one in the description. Only upon the publication of crime stoppers bulletin in July was more known about the victim. According to the bulletin, the Mary St Victim with a black male between eighteen and twenty, five old, his body had been profoundly burned and postmortem. Examiners were able to give an approximate height of about five eleven in a weight range of one hundred fifty to one hundred sixty pounds, though not in the paper, a source who has seen the autopsy told us that the cause of death was listed as blunt force trauma to the head and according to our source, a toxicology report was run the victim. The results showed that no controlled substances were in a system. The examiner was able to distinguish some details of the young man's clothing. A pullover shirt blue jeans. A Maroon CPO Zipper style jacket with Y. K. K. displayed on it and sandals. The clothing. Details were specific enough that someone hopefully could have recognized them. But, no identification came eventually the unidentified victims remains would either need to be interred, cremated or stored for testing in Nashville. Unidentified persons are generally buried. Every city has so called Potter's fields or cemeteries or Where public burials are conducted? These public burials are funded by the city because of a deceits lack of funds, unknown identity or unclaimed status, historically criminals might also be buried in Potter's fields, sometimes like other citizens in unmarked plots that might or might not be recorded in a log. These public burial grounds usually exist within or adjacent to traditional cemeteries where there are plots that are also privately and the twentieth and twenty first centuries Nashville's in the or proper burials have occurred in various cemeteries and on county owned land throughout the city. In some cases, there are not individual grave markers whether the descendants identity was known or unknown. Now the process is overseen by Metro. Social Services specifically indigent burial and cremation services. The eligibility for assistance is outlined on their website. The office works to provide plots, caskets, and grave markers, residents of Davidson county or those who died while in Nashville. The Tennessean newspaper that spotlighted the program on a few occasions, and it's program manager. A woman named Carol Wilson. tro Boorda cemetery is one of the sites of Nashville's indigent burials. A two thousand fourteen, Tennessee in article describes the area as industrial, and the graveyard is home to a thousand people who were interred via metro social services. Maps showed that the entrance to the cemetery is off the main road on the way to the main building of a local water treatment plant. The Tennessee notes that Metro social services made use of Bordeaux cemetery from nineteen, eighty, six, until two thousand and three Bordeaux has attracted a number of find grave contributors who have photograph nearly a thousand of the markers in the cemetery, both the indigent burials section and in the main burial area. When such photo on the website shows the entrance to the Potter's field or the name? Plates are flush with the ground. That section is marked by a granite memorial bearing the following words. Bordeaux Cemetery Rest with us here at the stone or poverty and suffering are not known. Dedicated to the deceased citizens of Nashville Davidson. County who rest with us here. It was then board that the unidentified victim found on Mary Street in April of Nineteen Ninety. Eight was buried unlike many victims we've covered. His remains were not cremated. Upon his interment, a marker was placed. John Do Nineteen. Per the Tennesseans, Brian has quote. He was the nineteenth unidentified man buried in the Bordeaux Cemetery. He lies and plot five fifty, five, a grave, overlooking the whites creek. We water treatment plant. We are not sure of the precise day of John Nineteen burial. The tornado came just three days after his body was found, and there would have been an autopsy and required records to file, and all of that would have been slowed down by the city storm damage. But based on information from social services. We know the intern happen sometime in May assuming that John DOE. Nineteen was local to the city. Exactly how many young black men were missing that? April in Nashville, how much could did the storm impact? The public's awareness that body have been found. Did anyone missed the news? Due to a lack of power that would have signaled that the man could be their missing son or brother or friend. Her the two thousand Census David County had an African American population of roughly twenty seven percent, young black men and John. Doe Nineteen Age Range of eighteen to twenty five. They numbered in the thousands. We can't say precisely. How many young adult black males were reported missing nine, hundred, Ninety eight? There aren't public records of clear cases, and as our audience knows most missing persons reports are eventually closed. But we can access the cases that are still open the cold ones now present as entries in public databases when the parameters are limited to a five year span, Namus lists exactly four missing black men from the Greater Nashville area you further narrow the search and nineteen ninety eight Namus returns exactly one case. The missing person in question is a young man named Marcus Rutledge, who was last seen by his family in June of ninety eight, so he couldn't have been John Nineteen, but his family and authorities feared that he too was a homicide victim. Marcus was twenty three years old at the time of his disappearance and a senior at Tennessee State University where he majored in biology, according to the Charlie Project, he actually planned on a career as a patron narian, which is why his family was so concerned when they found his dog locked in an apartment bathroom without food or water. It just wasn't something that Marcus would do, and there were no signs that he gone on a trip. Though. His car was eventually found across town. Markets remained missing. While! Unsolved disappearances were comparatively rare in Nashville. There was plenty to keep law enforcement busy. The nineteen nineties were hard on the city and the effects of crime at some communities harder than others. All told there were ninety nine homicides in Nashville in nineteen ninety eight. John Doe. Nineteen was unusual in that his identity remained unknown, but he shared three common factors with a number of years other homicide victims. He was young. He was black. He was male. According to a long-term study conducted by the Tennessee Department of Health, which covered the years nineteen, ninety, five to two thousand and two quote among fifteen to thirty four year old African American males homicide was the leading cause of death responsible for thirty four percent of deaths in this age group. The study also found that across the board. Black men and boys had the lowest life expectancies of populations living in the metropolitan areas of Tennessee. A two thousand eighteen study found bet across the United States quote Non Hispanic Black men were nearly ten point four times more likely than non Hispanic white men to die by homicide in the US. That, reality isn't reflected in the media that we consume. The white women are at the forefront of true crime entertainment, their statistically much less likely to be murdered, both in Tennessee and across the nation. Her. The Tennessee Department of Health Study on the State's population quote based on two thousand and one to two thousand and three data, African American males, each fifteen to twenty four died from homicide at a rate that is more than thirty one times that of white females. When it came to covering the city's victims, Nashville's local paper actually had much more coverage than in many cases. We've researched in the nineteen ninety S. the Tennessean ran regular features on unsolved homicides and based on what we saw. The paper seems to have highlighted diverse victims and families affected by rising violence. Nineteen ninety, five and nineteen, ninety-seven were Nashville's worst years. Though homicides were comparatively high in nineteen, ninety, six, thousand, nine, Ninety Eight leaders were concerned, and the police were stretched then, and there was the worry as a tourist town of developing a reputation. As one city officials told the Tennessean in Nineteen ninety-seven quote. Nobody wants to see music city become murder city. In nineteen, ninety seven, the Tennessean reported that some big cities were seeing a decrease in crime, but Nashville wasn't so lucky. The city was facing what the paper described as quote. Killing almost every third day reporter John Yates who covered crime for the Tennessean throughout the Nineteen Nineties interview detectives who said by Nineteen Ninety-seven? They were sometimes quote juggling five murder cases at once. According to Yates the city put various plans into action from citizen committees to participation in a national program called officer next door per yates. Nineteen ninety-seven article on the subject of the program encouraged law enforcement officers to buy homes in high crime areas at quote, half, market, value, and some neighborhoods law enforcement provided retailers with emergency bieber's to summon police. In? October nineteen, Ninety, eight, Tennessee and article mentioned something called Flex Teams, which were small groups of officers that could be dispatched quickly by precinct captains to combat neighborhood crime, and in nineteen, ninety eight Metro Nashville police expanded what they called their murder squad along with increased homicides, case clearance rates had also fallen a cause of concern for the Metro Nashville. Police Department Nashville had begun the decade with a higher than average software eight. The Tennessean reported at eighty seven percent, but by nineteen ninety seven. Seven that percentage had fallen to quote just under seventy and asked reporter John Yates pointed out caseload had doubled in that time. He interviewed a Metro Nashville captain who pointed out a problem that was facing every growing city. What the captain called quote mystery murders though he doesn't elaborate. The concept is a common truth. Disgust in true crime circles, the more people, the more roads in the more access, the lower the likelihood that a victim can be traced to a suspect and a need straight line. So Nashville major growth and part due to the arrival of the Houston oilers football team who relocated to Nashville in nineteen ninety-five, but the decade was also hard as we said in nineteen, Ninety eight, the year John Doe Nineteen was found there were ninety nine murders of those homicides twenty one would still be unsolved by January of Nineteen, Ninety nine, the Tennessee and provided a long feature article on those unsolved sides with each victim discussed by name this piece also by reporter. John Yates includes John Doe Nineteen and the years other unidentified victim, a woman shot and left in the Cumberland River. There are listed along Nashville citizens. The majority of whom were shot in many cases, burglary or robbery are listed as the motive, though many are labeled as quote motive on. An elderly couple Clayton North Smith were shot in their home by a man in an army type uniform. A young woman named Caroline. Fisher was strangled and left along interstate forty. The skeletal remains missing mother forty four year old. Donna far were discovered in a wooded area. Terrence teasingly twenty one was shot. No Suspects Kevin Carter Twenty one shot motive, unknown German banks, twenty six shot robbery, and the list goes on. The victim show pattern of particular intent, different races, ages areas of town, but for each case marked motive, unknown bears an example of that mystery murder phenomenon, no clear treadle follow perhaps no answers forthcoming. Of the twenty one then unsolved homicides five took place in April, but only to occurred within a week of the tornado. There was John Doe Nineteen on April Thirteen, and then there was Jeffrey Davis. who was shot on April seventeen? Davis was found on Garfield. Street just about half a mile away from Mary, Street, where John Doe Nineteen's body was recovered, both victims were found close to I two sixty five. Davis was found bleeding on the sidewalk and later died at Vanderbilt, hospital. To the best of our knowledge Davis's murder remains unsolved. With the victim known as John Doe, Nineteen though detectives were looking at what were essentially two different cases, identifying the victim and catching the suspect. We were able to speak with retired. Nashville detective Larry Flair, who worked on the department's murder squad in the nineteen nineties. For a brief time, he was actually the lead detective on John Doe Nineteen Case. We asked him to walk us through how they would have approached the case of an unidentified homicide victim especially in the days that came before the tornado. He told us that pre-planning was essential that the murder squad had a number of procedures in place to help them quickly gather as much information as possible. He also walked us through use of a regional teletype system essentially, NC, icy focused on a particular state. In this case Tennessee well in my career when we first formed our squad in Nashville, we actually. put all of our heads together and got a checkless and the checkless. Consist of at least a hundred and fifty different things everything from date and approximate time that we felt at the time of of being notified. All the way through the other one, hundred, fifty or sixty. Including weather temperature. Outside, all types of of samples or or extracted from if we're outside, I'll types of forensic stuff that is gathered by our forensic team and and such. All the way down to once we if it was determined honing unidentified. Person that we felt was missing. Are we found out that somebody was on the missing person? Be Poor. And that's where we would follow up and when you've got a body with no identification. You keep that in a lot of Pronto with own front page. That's everything we got, and you get someone out to eat with paperwork on them deals or something like that. It might not even be there. So you treat each one of these victims is. If they're practically possibly not the person you feel that they are, they could be an unidentified individual so. That's that's the teamwork that we had at the Nashville during that era in the unidentified cases that I worked. I depended. Tremendously own the organization. It's called R. O. C. I see. That's real organization crime. Information Center. And we. Is detected, that utilized the. We'll see I see we would Author I complete. Actual part of everything that we knew of the unidentified person, we would pour that into their system. And their system along with their antlers. Would Dan You know complete searches and any other type of situations that might match up. Now in this particular case. We didn't get anything back on this victim. Entire file on that and that alone with the RMC. Unfortunately it was. They had a regional office there in Nashville made it. Much easier than we gained a relationship and there was different professionals over there. So, they're just wearing missing young adult black males who met the aging in? Physical criteria. That at that time, because each and every hit that we would just it would be closed when we would follow up on it. That's my memory. Is that They were definitely not in the criteria where it of been either in Nashville or The age group or different things of that nature so everything in. We weren't able to get anything of value, but it helped us cancel so many others as well. Larry told us that they would employed in CIC to to run national and sometimes even international checks. They would have had the basic victim description back from the coroner on an average case within a day or two, and sometimes it has little as seven hours, the official report would come much later, but as with the Glenn County Jane Doe the Medical Examiner would have prioritize giving law enforcement basic. They needed to begin sorting through missing persons reports. So with that in mind, the first check through the system would have likely come on April fourteenth, though we can't be certain detective Larry Flair left the homicide squad in July of Nineteen, ninety eight, so he can't speak to how the case eventually unfolded, but he was involved in the retrieval of evidence evidence that Metro Nashville would explore over the next two decades. And the murder squad would have worked John. Nineteen case throughout the spring of Nineteen Ninety eight, but would have also experienced the same shutdowns as the rest of the city when the tornado hit on April sixteenth. How much did the storm impact the search for the victim and the killer? And a two thousand and thirteen article on the case, law enforcement related the effort to Tennessean. Reporter Brian Haas Haas reported that quote. Sergeant Gary Kemper who now leads Metros Cold Case Unit, said detectives worked feverishly. They developed persons of interest, even went out of state to conduct interviews, but the case went cold, two thousand and one, and they never identified John Doe Nineteen and quote. No. There have been a few studies that concerned the combination of natural disaster and crime, but most focus on crimes that occur after a disaster, and who was most vulnerable, and which predators might take advantage of long-term chaos like the multiple serial killers, adding Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. What's much harder to quantify though is how a natural disaster might affect an ongoing case, we can offer a study on that phenomenon, but we do know of a single specific example from the week of the Nashville. Tornado. There was a missing persons report filed on April. Fifteenth Nineteen Ninety eight two days after. After John Doe Nineteen was found one day before the tornado hit. The report identified the missing person as the Ryan. Nicholson of North Nashville. He was described as an eighteen year old black male, according to the incident report law. Ryan was last seen by his mother. Sylvia on April Twelfth Nineteen. Ninety Eight, the report mentions that he was living with his uncle on Jefferson Street, but that's not quite right. He was actually staying with his mother and regularly visited his uncle's apartment. His mother and uncle reported that they last seen him on Sunday afternoon when he left the House on foot. The responding officer noted that Lou Ryan was on quote medication to treat schizophrenia and quote known to smoke marijuana. We don't know why the latter is included unless it was discussed in response to a routine question about medications and substance, issues. Ryan Nicholson was a native of Nashville. He'd grown up pretending. It's public schools and participating in civic programs. His name appeared in the local paper a few times before that April when he disappeared. Pearl Cohn High School. He'd been talented athlete, running track and placing several races that were reported in the regional sports section. He was fifteen then and a lot would change over the next three years. The Police Department's report lists Lorraine as six foot, one in one hundred and fifty pounds with black hair and Brown eyes, his mother and uncle said he was last seen in a white shirt, bluejeans, black nikes and a black hat. There's not mention of a jacket or what style of Nikes sneakers or slip on sandals that the Ryan had on. It for recall John. Doe Nineteen was described as a black male eighteen to twenty, five, approximately five eleven, and somewhere around one hundred fifty pounds. John DOE nineteen clothing was badly damaged, but the medical examiner with make bluejeans sandals scowl shoes and a Maroon jacket. We don't have access to the report, so we can only say. The shirt was pullover style meaning without buttons most likely that minute t shirt. Minor discrepancies aside the descriptions of the Ryan Nicholson and John Doe, nineteen or similar, certainly similar enough to suggest a comparison should be made for a few days. Laurent's case was open alongside John Doe Nineteen's Lorraine went missing on the twelfth, and was reported as such on the fifteenth. John. Doe and Nineteen was found on the thirteenth less than a day after Sylvia. The Ryan's mother said she had last seen him. Laurent's case would have been active for about twenty four hours before the Nashville Tornado hit. So there were four days before his case was closed that a comparison might have been made if anyone was actively working cases at that time when a state of emergency have been declared. There's an addendum Tila Ryan's missing persons report on a separate page that provides some vital additional information on April. Twentieth Nineteen, Ninety, eight, a person called the Metro Nashville Police Department and reported that the Ryan Nicholson had returned home. His case was summarily quote closed by exception. After April Twentieth Nineteen. Ninety eight. There was no missing. Persons Report to compare to John Nineteen whose identity was still being sought. Of his family. Only the Ryan's mother and uncle knew he was missing. That weakened April of Nineteen Ninety eight. They were not contacted when the case was closed. And the Ryan Gender. Sister Amira and his step sister candace. They weren't sharing a home with him at that time, and they weren't aware of his daily comings and goings. Lorraine's father, who lived out of state, was similarly unaware of a son's daily movements and candice and Amirah. They didn't know that a missing persons report have been filed in the first place, so they didn't know it had been closed either five days after Ryan's mother reported his absence, and they didn't know the woman who'd phoned. Metro Nashville police her the police report the caller had identified herself as hauling venable and claimed she was a neighbor of Law Ryan's. She was no relation to family. We know that when there's an unidentified victim, law enforcement starts close to home looking through the city's own missing persons reports Nashville had certainly done that and would do that in the future. In fact, we came across a number of articles, discussing attempts and other cases to match human remains to missing persons reports. One in particular that stood out, was the skeleton of a man found in two thousand and one wants. Those bones were discovered. They were quickly compared to the medical records of a missing local Man Rodney Woodard Rodney was reported missing by his girlfriend in nineteen, ninety seven, when the skeletal remains discovered in two thousand and one police conducted to DNA tests, but were unable to match although Rodney, woodard met the parameters of our Nima search a-block male who disappeared in the years directly surrounding nineteen, Ninety Eight. He didn't appear in the results. He does have one mention on the Charlie project, but we can't find any documents on his case past two thousand and one. It's unclear whether his disappearance still unsolved. And as far as other open cases go. There was another man who might have been compared to the skeletal remains found in two thousand and one Marcus Rutledge the Tennessee state senior. We mentioned earlier in the episode whether he was compared. We can't say, but we know. The remains would not be compared to Laurent Nicholson. After all his case would've been closed for several years, and as for John Doe Nineteen. Metro Nashville gleese would still be seeking the homicide victims identity the next year and the next and the next. It would be fifteen years until the cold case of John Doe nineteen collided with the detective work of two sisters who had been asking and eventually looking for their missing brother Laurent. They hadn't spoken to him. Since April of Nineteen, ninety, eight, Amiram was just twelve that year felt his loss keenly. And also felt sure that big brother wouldn't have abandoned her. Here's what she told us an interview the spring. I'm telling you it's. It's unlike him to not call anybody. He would have reached out so one of us. You know one or the other would have heard from him by now all this time. He would've call somebody. He didn't even show up. I knew something was definitely wrong because the year that he went missing ninety eight, my sister. My Dad's daughter was graduating from high school, and they had the graduation on the football field at Pearl Cohn. He loves US school. You know and I'm sure that he knew that that she graduated because they would have been graduating in the same year, and I lived for him and our crowd. I'm like I. Know I'm GonNa see him standing somewhere. I can't wait, gets it his graduation and I looked and looked, and he never showed. A never saw. Even up until my graduation when I graduated in two thousand four from high school. I just knew he was going to be there. I was GONNA see him. He's GonNa pop up after all these years. Never saw. Next time on the fall line will bring you part two in the series on the Ryan Nicholson. Again in Nineteen Ninety eight with the story of Law Ryan and two sisters, and the strange call close his case, and how it all intersected with the unidentified victim known as John Doe Nineteen.

She glanced at a junior standing nearby Brian Anderson and asked if he knew what was going on out there. Anderson shrugged suggesting probably a cap gun it's probably for video productions. The theory made sense but that did not excuse the disruption. Patty strode towards the glass doors and Brian followed ready to watch her lay down the law. But. Just as they arrived the second set of doors, the young men in black turned around. He smiled. Then he pointed the gun at down. The glass door shattered. That was no cap gun.

Last week, we talked about beanie babies, the cute toys that adult greed to to a multimillion dollar obsession. Today, we're closing out the season by looking at perhaps the nineteen ninety s biggest legacy of all. Its teenagers. They came of age during a decade that's a lot less charm than we'd like to remember as our past nine episodes of illustrated. that. Made for a difficult sometimes tortured adolescence. If you look closely the clues are there even under the bubbly irony of clueless but by the time you get to columbine there's no need to squint. Coming up. The teenagers that the nineteen ninety s chewed up and spit out. In the Nineteen Eighties John Hughes Movies reigned supreme as the ultimate documents of teen culture. These comedies were positive upbeat portrayals of suburban teen life. They didn't pretend that everything was perfect in the breakfast club, the kids bond over their shared traumas and difficult life circumstances. But the key here is that there are difficulties are a path towards connection as far as the film is concerned plus the problem is in these stories are generally kept to a distinctly teen world where teenage solutions are enough to sort things out. Meaning the issues feel finite. Our characters will leave them all behind. Once that final school bell rings and senior year is up adolescents can be difficult. Hughes admits, but he promises that it'll be nostalgic soon enough. By the nineteen nineties teen media wasn't so sure. Take clueless the nineteen nineties answer to teen comedy. Like Hughes's films it follows a cast of mostly high school kids and young love is a central issue but there are less wholesome undertones. Share. The heroin is sexually harassed by a classmate and robbed at point in a parking lot. Her love interest. The son of her father's ex wife is in college expanding the social scene of the story beyond high schools, walls, and close ups of a teenage party or vomiting into a pool hint at the gross underbelly of Highschool. Life. This is all presented with a light humorous tone. Sheriff famously cries out that her dress is an Eliah and she can't just lay down on the dirty concrete all while a gun is pointed at her head. But the humor here draws on the irony of that response shares situation is actually terrifying. That kind of irony is a central feature throughout the film. In general, the ironic tongue-in-cheek high school comedy genre of the Nineteen Nineties S was likely response to changes in youth culture that hit the mainstream a few years before. It all started in the north west of the US in the mid eighties. Young people mostly around the Seattle area we're experimenting with a new kind of music. They were mixing the sounds of heavy metal and Punk Rock in the context of Lo fi diy production and creating something all their own. They ethos of the scenes surrounding this music was anti establishment and anti-capitalist with a tendency towards anarchy. The scene stirs saw the darkness of mainstream societies materialistic conformism and they rejected that was evident from the music they made from the first heavy aggressive bang of. It was also evident in their style more inspired by lumber Jackson Secondhand dollar axe than New York fashion week. Perhaps, that's how their movement got its name. grunge the word itself denotes dirtiness and something or someone that is distasteful and unacceptable. But the musicians and seen stirs disagreed with mainstream capitalist values and of society saw them as distasteful. That was societies problem grunge teens we're proud to be outsiders. Ironically however, grunge is outsider message actually became mainstream. It all started in the early nineteen nineties on the stages of Seattle's concert halls. The room was dark the stage setup sparse. The three young men performing weren't quitting on dramatic theatrics. Their faces were all hidden by long stringy locks of hair. The drummer was shirtless but otherwise get ups were nondescript. The blonde frontman was wearing a cozy over-sized v neck sweater as he crooned a song called smells like Teen Spirit. Some of the lyrics included. With the lights out, it's less dangerous. Here we are now entertain us I, feel stupid and contagious. All very grunge sentiments. What made this performance different from most grunge shows was the stage it was a big one. Even more unusual was the size of the audience. The Concert Hall was Chock Full of Teens yelling out the lyrics alongside blonde frontman Kurt. COBAIN. And not just in Seattle the scene repeated itself all across America and internationally to the ban these teams were screaming for. Nirvana. Like mo Seattle area grunge bands Nirvana started out with a stint the local label sub pop despite their first nine, thousand, nine, hundred, nine album bleach selling poorly they leveled up to a major record label digi see records in nineteen ninety, their second album nineteen ninety-one. Wind blew up. By. Blew Up. We mean knocked Michael Jackson off the top of the charts. Big. By Christmas nineteen ninety one nevermind was selling approximately four hundred thousand copies a week in the US? To this day, it remains one of the best selling albums of all time. Some of the band's success can be attributed to Kurt cobain's blue eyes and strong jaw. But his thin unassuming frame and baggy thrift store clothes were a far cry from the trappings of your typical. Teen Heartthrob. Meanwhile. Nirvana's sound was certainly in the tradition of grunge which until then had remained a relatively fringe subculture. Many commentators felt the only explanation for the band's out of nowhere success was that Nirvana calibrated grunge at exactly the right frequency at exactly the right time. The band was speaking the language of ninety teens while their predecessors have been railing in vain at eight hundred kids. Kurt cobain was the spokesperson of generation a new generation. The cover art on never mind is a prime example of what exactly cobain was saying it shows a baby swimming underwater reaching for a dollar bill caught on a fishing hook just out of reach. In other words the American promise of eternal growth fiscal and otherwise is a scam. That dollar bill that happy ending is Bate it will always be just out of reach. It's a classic grunge take. But the success of Nirvana indicated that their message resonated with nineties teens much more than grunge had with mainstream eighties, teens, nineties kids were seeing the greed, the obsession, the exploitation, and the dangerously unequal distributions of power that characterized their parents booming economy. Everything we've covered over the course of this season they were living through it. They were aware of it and they didn't like it. Nirvana gave those frustrations of voice a sat down. And a representative. Bill it's notable however that cobain wasn't thrilled with his designated time of spokesman for. As he put it, I'm a spokesman for myself. It just so happens that there's a bunch of people that are concerned with what I have to say I find that frightening at times because I'm just as confused as most people. I don't have the answers for anything I don't want to be a spokesperson. After all spokesperson in a monolithic. Youth Culture an establishment with a leader. That's exactly what grunge was not what it was always against. And according to Butch Vig, the producer of never mind heart of what Nirvana fans loved was exactly that unproductive anti hierarchical message that ambiguity. That's the whole thing what the kids are attracted to in the music is the passion and the fact that cobain doesn't necessarily know what he wants, but he's pissed. Nirvana's sense of anger and rejection without a clear message of what better might look like might have been part of its appeal but this lack of solutions may also have been critical to its downfall. Without, clear goals for the mainstream movement around grunge Nirvana's fans were just that. Fans emulating and singing along with cobain. When cobain fell prey to grunge own internal darkness the righteous anger of those fans was left without an outlet or direction at least until corporations stepped in. To give it one.

Ninety s teenagers had found an art form that perfectly expressed their frustrations with the hypocrisy of American materialism. GRUNGE music. But grunge had its own problems namely heroin. Seattle the movements nucleus was considered Washington's heroin capital. Courtney love the lead singer of the band hole and Kurt cobain's wife explained everybody was doing it everyone everyone all our friends were junkies. It was ridiculous. In this town did dope. This aspect of the scene came out into the open in Nineteen ninety-four just a few years after Nirvana mated big. That year twenty, seven year old Kurt, cobain died of suicide. He had heroin in his bloodstream. Prior to his death cobaine had actually spoken against drug use as he put it in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two interview with Rolling Stone All drugs are a waste of time they destroy your memory and your self respect and everything that goes along with your self esteem there are no good at all. But this public statement was a farce. cobain struggled with chronic bronchitis, an undiagnosed chronic stomach condition and depression. He'd been a cannabis users since he was a teenager and regularly abused prescription drugs as a way to self medicate according to Nirvana Basis Chris Nova sillage cockbain was really into getting left up drugs acid, any kind of drug. COBAIN's death broad issues around addiction to the front and center of the mainstream press. This could have been a helpful productive conversation for a country that was experiencing marked increases in prescription drug abuse heroin addiction itself. Outside of the grunge scene was just a burgeoning mainstream issue at the time and serious conversations about the drug could have helped keep levels low. Unfortunately. That's not how the reactions to cobain's death laid out. There were a host of conversations about the twenty seven club, the phenomena of remarkably talented musicians dying at the age of twenty seven. Even, cobain's mother chimed in famously telling reporters. Now, he's gone and joined that stupid club. Then there were the theories that cobain had been murdered according to some by his own wife Oh front woman courtney love. She was also blamed for him hooked on heroin in the first place. In one, thousand, nine, hundred to interview with the couple accused love of using heroin during her pregnancy and love has stated that the media attention contributed to cobain's mental instability and her own struggles with addiction. Ultimately, the conspiracies were a distraction and the mainstream media failed to productively examined drug abuse and mental health following cobain's death. Teams were left with was a cobain sized hole in their lives one they were desperate to fill with whatever would bring them closer to their lost hero. They were already imitating cobain even before his death teens across America had adopted grungy fashion choices. Worn flannels, combat boots stringy hair poking out from under knit ski hats. Corporations had already taken note. They started selling priced pre worn flannels ripped jeans. They even branded hair gel as grunge. All at a delectable prophet. But after cobain's death, many teens wanted to get even closer to him. In, this context perhaps it's not surprising that the fashion industry started to modify another element of the Seattle grunge look. Stick thin dark circled heroin user or as it was alarmingly dubbed Heroin Chic. Eighty supermodels had skyrocketed to fame. Thanks to their glowing relatively healthy looks. But by the mid nineties that had changed. Kate Moss was the biggest model on the scene and she was beloved by the Fashion Industry for her pale skin, dark circles and ultra slender frame. As one commentator, put it. The look is your was a nihilistic vision of beauty that mirrored the wasted silhouettes and pinched faces of drug addicts. And once the fashion industry had staked their claim on heroin chic it wasn't only grunge kids who wanted to look like cobain. Every team. Between Nineteen Ninety, two and nineteen ninety-seven recreational drug use amongst high school students ballooned climbing from twenty seven point one percent to forty two point, four percent among seniors. Meanwhile, the incidents of eating disorders rose amongst teenage girls and boys alike. Even for teens who weren't struggling with an eating disorder dieting was the name of the game share. The straight laced heroin of Nineteen ninety-five clueless was dedicated to keeping thin working out constantly and carefully watching what she ate as she put it at one point in the film, I, feel like such a Heifer I two bowls of special k three pieces of Turkey Bacon, a handful of popcorn five peanut butter. And like three pieces of liquorice. Of course, dieting was nothing new to American women or even teenage girls. But. In the era of Kate Moss, the desired look had changed from slender to something even less healthy. Now, the goal was Waif as in an unhealthy child. The grunge aesthetic had been completely commodified and in the process it had become poisonous. Meanwhile, grunge music faded out of the mainstream in the wake of cobain's death and other drug related losses in the Seattle scene and beyond bans were struggling to keep body and soul in one piece much less put out an album. All. That was left of grunge at least on the national stage was heroin. Chic. So teams did what the corporations begged them to. They embraced it. When nineteen year old Fiona Apple released her debut album title in Nineteen Ninety six she seemed poised to profit off images of Druggie kids just like the corporations. The video for her nineteen ninety-seven song criminal featured her stick thin body writhing around on the floor surrounded by what appeared to be mostly passed out teens the bags under her eyes or enormous. The reference to nineties youth culture and voyeurism couldn't have been clearer. Teens watching the video play and replay on MTV understood that reference after all, they just watch some of their favourite stars experienced the most destructive kinds of fame. But Fiona apple wasn't a corporate product and when she won best female video at the nineteen ninety-seven video music awards, she proved that. She went onstage to claim her award and made the following statement. I didn't prepare a speech, but I'm glad that I didn't because I'm not going to do this like everybody else what I want to say as you shouldn't model your life about what you think that we think is cool and what we're wearing and what we're saying, go with yourself, go with yourself. This was real grunge energy not its corporate, standing a return to the original grunge ethos that said, be yourself fight against norms and don't look for a spokesperson. Unfortunately this didn't go too well for Fiona Apple New York Rock writer luck called it one of the most ridiculous soliloquies ever to be witnessed at an MTV awards event. Other critics were equally harsh. They panned apple as Bratty and self important. They even called her a hypocrite. Here, she was profiting off the music industry and playing into the aesthetic of heroin chic just as much as the next wave on MTV she should be thankful for the support of the industry and if she wasn't well. As. Easily. Be. Shut out. That's not to say her career was ruined in the process of returning to grunge roots. She became a hero for many young people. If there was an initial whiff of hypocrisy around her speech vans didn't care especially when apple stood by her statement despite the backlash. apologized. Many young people saw a real grunge rebel in her they were moved by her message of independence. Still, the negative press that followed apple's via, may's speech was telling mainstream society didn't want another cobain. It wanted to get back to the days when teens fell into line, bought what the corporation sold to them and listen to their parents. Unfortunately, whatever John Hughes eighties normal they were thinking of the nineties had scrapped that possibility. As. The decade came to a close an appalling new normal reared its ugly head. The bloody parting gift of an already difficult decade rocked the nation. And stated its adolescence? Coming up Colorado's columbine high. School is the site of a massacre.

Now back to the story. In the mid nineteen, ninety s Seattle based grunge was succeeded by the heroin chic grunge aesthetic. Many parents seem to prefer it that way at least it was just a look even if glorified some of the worst parts of the grunge movement? Kids could die at a bit by an overpriced flannel and still respect their parents views on progress professionalism and the importance of old fashioned American values. But no amount of corporatized grunge could bring back those happy days of John Hughes Breakfast Club especially, not after April Twentieth Nineteen Ninety nine. The. Morning dawned like any other spring day in Columbine, Colorado kids packed up their backpacks parents hustled them out. The door teens were gobbling down pop tarts says they scrambled across the lawn hoping they'd make it to columbine high school before the first morning bell rang. Sophomore Craig, Scott, and his sister Rachel Junior had a quick squabble on the ride to school when they finally arrived Craig hopped out and slammed his door then he ran for the glass doors of the main, columbine? Building. The first few classes of the day were typical. Craig's teachers rush through their curriculum. Aware of the impending summer break by eleven twenty, a m craig was in the library along with many of his fellow students. Then they heard a strange popping sound coming from outside. At first they assumed it was a senior prank could be someone setting off firecrackers. That might be fun. Just then a teacher ran into the room she was frantic and screaming. There were two students outside with guns they were shooting at other students everyone had to hide now. After a moment of tense confusion, Craig and all the other kids in the room under tables and into out of the way corners. To, Columbine seniors dressed in black trenchcoats swept into the library. One carried a shotgun, the other a semiautomatic. But the boys didn't start by shooting I. They mocked their classmates. In terrified horror Craig realized this was a game. When the shooter said anybody with a white hat or a sports emblem on it is. Dead. Greg. Pulled the cap off his head and tucked it under his shirt. Then, he prayed. Because the boys weren't jus- joking around. After they taunted each of their victims. They shot. This went on for what felt like an eternity enough -ality by twelve o eight PM less than an hour after the violence began both shooters had killed themselves. Craig survived uninjured. But twenty one others had been shot and wounded and twelve of his classmates in one teacher were dead. Amongst those killed was Craig's sister Rachel. Last seen on the wrong side of a slammed the car door. The Columbine High School massacre, rocked Colorado and the nation. There had been shootings by students in American schools before. But too many columbine felt like something else entirely. More than anything the nation and the survivors wanted to know why this had happened. Why had these kids died? Why had to high school students turn merger into a game. But the perpetrators were dead just like their victims. It was up to the living to piece together some answers. Investigators turned to the information left behind by the shooter's Columbine Seniors Eric Harris and Dylan klebold. They began by logging onto an AOL website. Harris, it started back in Nineteen ninety-six. The site which functioned in part as a blog seemed to document fairly normal teenage behavior thoughts at first. But beginning in nineteen, ninety seven, there was a shift in Harris's tone. He started posting angry sometimes violent frustrations. For example, you know what I hate when there is a group standing in the middle of a hallway or walkway, and they are just standing there talking and blocking my way get out of the way or I'll bring a frigging sod off shotgun to your house and blow your snotty head off. By the end of Nineteen ninety-seven, the blog contained instructions for how to make a bomb and by nineteen ninety-eight, the threats had gotten even more specific. One read. All I. WanNa do is kill and injure as many of you as I can especially a few people like Brooks Brown. Brooks Brown was another student at Columbine mentioning his name had drawn some initial attention to Harris's blog back in nineteen ninety eight. Brown's parents brought the site to police. We're an investigator wrote up an affidavit on the sites alarming contents. But that affidavit was never submitted to a judge and Harris's behavior went unchecked. Investigators would also find journals by both Harris and Dylan klebold. They contain detailed plans for the massacre and plenty of evidence of violent impulses. In, retrospect similar interests were even clear in the teenagers schoolwork they chose to research Nazis and Charles Manson. All of this painted a heartbreaking picture of missed opportunities for intervention but still none of these findings indicated a clear motive. The FBI. Concluded that there wasn't one not in so far as a motive implies a rational goal. They chuck the massacre up to mental illness according to their psychological profiles of the teenagers. Eric Harris was a psychopath and Dylan klebold a depressive. As the supervisor in charge of the investigation would put it. I believe Eric went to the school to kill and didn't care if he died while Dylan wanted to die and didn't care if others died as well. The FBI's conclusions gave a shattered nation something to work with as every headline across America grappled with the tragedy. At least they knew what kind of teens might be prone to this kind of violence. But for many, it wasn't enough. There were plenty of depressed teens who weren't murdering anyone. There were even psychopaths that abstained from killing. What was different here? Several popular theories emerged. One centered around the fact that according to some of their classmates both shooters were mercilessly bullied at Columbine. They were called gay slurs and had food thrown at them in general. They were social outcasts. It was speculated that perhaps this bullying combined with mental illness had led to the devastating massacre. Other theories centered around by violence in ninety s culture accusations were thrown at everything from musician Marilyn Manson, who's band featured lyrics about violence and violent impulses to video game manufacturers. Harris had been an avid fan of first person shooter games. These theories led to a veritable panic amongst parents as the decade wound to a close they were starting to look back on the nineties and wonder what had become of America. Had they failed their kids? Unfortunately, the nation's frenetic fear and concern didn't materialize into a clear prevention plan. Parents of some of the victims filed lawsuits against video game manufacturers, but these suits were unsuccessful on April twenty ninth ten senators requested that interscope records stopped distributing music that glorified violence namely the music of Marilyn Manson. Likely. As a result Manson, did cancel his upcoming tour dates but he also published an incisive response to the senators in Rolling Stone magazine. It was titled Columbine Whose Fault is it. In the article Manson drew attention to a much more concrete actionable facilitator of columbine than the Amorphous idea of violence in the culture that is America's gun culture and loose guns. If those mentally ill gene boys hadn't been told by the NRA, that real-life guns were a fabulous toy and hadn't been able to get their hands on real guns as miners than columbine would have never happened regardless of what video games Harris was playing. Manson's points resonated across America. And the government did respond with some minor reformed gun control law. But the gun control lobby pushed back and as the decade since have shown, gun control has continued to be a never ending controversy. One. That gets a heart wrenching boost every time there's a new school shooting meaning often. Instead of marking a tragic and shameful outlier in American history columbine became a model for a host of other school shooters. As of April two, thousand nineteen, there have been over to hundred forty school shootings since April Twentieth Nineteen Ninety nine not including shootings at colleges and universities if guns have stayed as part, of American, culture school shootings have become just as much as a part of that culture. That's a sour inheritance for nineteen nineties teenagers. They were the ones who had to live through the trauma of. Columbine. Most directly. The ones who had to go back to school in the aftermath of the massacre cautiously peering around every door before entering. School for many of them became an atmosphere of fear rather than a place to learn and grow. And yet the adults, the people who were supposed to protect their children failed to enact meaningful change. They left their teenagers to struggle with making that change themselves as they graduated into Adult Hood in the new millennium. Not, to say nineties, teens headed all bad like any decades teenagers they experienced the ups as well as the downs of adolescence and they did benefit from a booming economy whatever they may have thought of it. The decade also marked the production of some of the best team media to date including landmark shows like my so called life and freaks and Geeks both of which explored the trials and tribulations of teen life from a relatable perspective. But the fact that racism in high schools made it onto the little screen didn't nullify that racism. The fact that teens were able to see adolescent sex drinking and homelessness on TV didn't make the TRAUMAS of their own lives disappear. We've heard too much about the dark arteries of the nineteen nineties to leave this season on a happy note. Every facet of the decade had a dark side from its chat rooms to its idols to the food on it's dinner tables. And no one was more inundated in that darkness than nineties teens. They had no prior frame of reference. They simply came of age in a very confusing time. So next time you find yourself clicking on a mean that only ninety kids will understand take it's nostalgia with a grain of salt. Or as the nineties would have it a grain of sarcasm.
