But I just ran out of words to say to the way that you were treated. It's a shame. And I hope that you can confirm some of the stuff about the boxes and stuff because all of a sudden, when you said that, it started making sense about why would they take an agent who was shot by the zeta cartels the most one of the most dangerous areas in the world? I mean, dangerous like, you would have been safer on the streets of Kabul or Baghdad. And an agent gets killed and why he is not honored the way he ought to be.

Listen to this. I got to write an investigation a file with a case number about the little bumper fender bender that I just had. Keep that in mind. Keep that in mind about the investigation of what I had to do for that fender bender and what they did not do when an officer gets killed in a line of duty. Yeah. And so yeah, no training. Trial by fire, same thing with Jaime. He had never driven an armored vehicle. And so at the time, and I'll get to that point. I'm about to get there because we're driving back and within a few minutes, there is a Mexican federal police. Unit, police car, in the middle of a four lane highway, four going south for two lanes going south to lingo in north. And in the big median grassy median. And there is a Mexican federal police unit where the police officer in uniform staying outside with an M4 in a quasi three quarter position. Scanning traffic, literally going left to right. He's ready to fight to that. What the hell is this guy doing in my life have seen that ever? And I've been through illegal checkpoints. I've been through legal checkpoints, police checkpoints, cartel checkpoints, you name it. I have learned how to navigate through those as a diplomat as an agent, this was not that. This is a guy in the middle. And I'm not the only one slowing down. It's all the people. This is people driving on this freeway and they're like, what in the heck is that guy doing? Knowing they're slowing down and we do the same. And I'm driving and he's looking at us and we're staring at him and I got very scared. I was scared. I kept on driving and the only vision I have is from a side mirrors that I'm looking at him and he's still there. And I finally, he's out of sight and I turned to Hyman, I saw you all right, man. He says, no, I'm a little scary. I asked him, are you scared? He says, yeah, I said me too, man. That was fucking weird, does that? I had never felt that. I felt uneasy. I felt I didn't feel safe.

"This is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We take the story seriously, but as you've already seen, we never take ourselves serious. We're going to have some fun. Yeah, and let me tell you a fun was last week, you know? I'm telling you, I don't know how we get a lot of these episodes, but rich morass was such just such a great episode. Just like you said, the authenticity and transparency got a lot of feedback. Guys, it's the real deal. You know, he took it in the shorts, but I'm very excited now about what we've got coming up because this one this is something a lot of people have heard about and a lot of people don't actually have the real story we got into a lot of the real story. And this is the anniversary of the shooting of agent Jaime zapata of ice immigrations and customs enforcement, along with his partner who was shot and wounded, Victor Avila by the Los Zetas cartel. It's got a book out there. You can go to the website agent under fire book dot com. We actually have the book on our website. And Steve, I'm telling you, when we talk to Victor, I remember in the last episode, you talked about just like with rich, how emotional people get and when we start talking about what we're doing this on Valentine's Day for a couple of reasons. Number one, because what could have been his last dinner that he missed and his kids did something special for him. You're gonna have to listen to the episode. Yeah. I mean, choked Victor up big time. What a great story. And we're doing this episode in memory of homies up out to the ice agents that was killed down there that day. Who was with Victor, but wait till the story itself is unbelievable, but wait till you happen. Here what happens afterwards to Victor how his own agency treats him afterwards. And that's the thing that just sticks in my throat. You may hear us get a little ticked off when we talk about that part. But I'm hoping it ticks you off too because it's unfounded, it's unjust what he lived through. So let us know what you think about it. That's right. Well, let me know what you think about this because before we get into the good stuff, we got to get into the fun stuff because again, we take the show seriously, but we never what? Never take ourselves serious. And one of the ways we don't take ourselves serious is how? We have a special slot for.

Abbot saying he's an arrest people for criminal trespass easier said than done right. We heard this. Oh six weeks ago. When he declared it the first time he said it and now it's a ripple effect into the president senator that you said there's been built. It's going to open sometime next week.

Texas which is three and a half hour drive from there and they're going to zoom calls. They're going to be charged with an aggravated criminal. Salt criminal trespass into the state of texas and these people are going to be arrested.

In london before coming back to the us and any up here at oak spring in five years ago. That's wonderful and it's a beautiful place for anyone that's never heard of it. I will have all the links available for people but yeah it's really awesome to see some of my favorite botanical institutions early scientific institutions. I realized the field museum does much more than botany. But you yourself are a paleobotanist. And where did that all begin. I mean we're you into fossils as a child or did you just kind of discover your pass along the way through botany and then decided to look towards the past to kind of understand where diversity is today botanically. Yeah so i've I i did grow with an interest in fossils also had a real interesting archaeology actually as a teenager in high school and i was interested. In how archaeologists were able to construct pasta environments mainly through Pollen analysis allow a but also analysis of other plant remains and then that kind of led me to go a little deeper in time with a with an evolutionary perspective rather than necessarily more ecological perspective and so when i was looking at college i chose reading university because they had a long tradition in petty.

There's so many I mean I've been playing fevers such a long time ever since the World Cup 1998. I would say be for 17 honestly for several reasons. I like the gameplay and I also like that fever because that's what everything sort of started right on so, I mean not not to say that the other FIFA's aren't as good. Let's be very clear about that. Right? Yeah for sure. There's several pieces that I really do like it was a tough decision. I mean it took a while to think of all the FIFA's I mean 16-15 was a really really good. The thing is though. I mean FIFA changes every single FIFA some people don't believe this but it really does change.

MLB Spring training: A Look At the Detroit Tigers
"Innovative and all that I do think there's a chance of the Tigers offense could be better than people expect. And certainly the pitching staff could get to that point as well with all the young arms that they have. The problem is, I think they're very clearly the fifth place team in that division, so a lot of teams will take liberties with them will take advantage of them and also to keep in mind as you're watching spring training as you're kind of looking at these stats and the numbers and all of that. They're using a different baseball right now, then they will be using during the regular season and I don't know why Major League Baseball has not supplied those baseballs to the pictures for everyone to get used to them, but You know, we're also going to see Cold Weather games, which we didn't see last year early on in the season, so I think everybody offensively will be in for a rude awakening and the Tigers, probably to a higher degree. All right, So let me ask you, how does it happen when you have a Tiger's team and McGee Cabrera is still there, But when you have guys, I mean that line if they had just just a few years back Was like, ridiculous and you're going like this team. You know, they just need to, you know, sort of, and Verlander is still there And then all of a sudden now you look at that lineup and you look at the depth chart You like. Who are these guys? And they look, I know there's young prospects was always prospects, You know, cause you're trading away and you're dumping salary. I mean, Look, the Yankees are paying that luxury tax every year. I mean, they're going to make sure that they have their guys. It's It's tough for me to look at the Detroit franchise to where, you know. Pause. The mascot, maybe the best hitter on the team. It's one of those things where Mike Village in the Tigers were close, and Ellis was getting older. He knew this health was starting to fail all that he was going to stop at nothing to try and win a World Series with that team. And he had the right GM to do it. And Dave Dombrowski, whose very happy to spend a lot of the owner's money and then go somewhere else, So that was kind of the situation that happened there in Detroit was Village spent and spent and spent to try and get that world. Syria's before he passed away and it didn't happen. And then when his son took over the team, it was okay. We've got some really bad contracts that we need to unload. We either have to, you know, hope that we can jump in a time machine and fast forward things or make trades like the Verlander trade. You know, like getting rid of J. D. Martinez. Some of these guys that were very high priced players that were probably starting to reach the aging curve, starting to reach that point where they were going to start to decline a little bit faster. So that's just kind of what happened with the Tigers. And you know al Avila, whose the GM now came out and basically said, Look, We're not spending any money this year because we shouldn't we don't need to. We're planning our next year, so the Tigers probably will get that payroll back up. But hopefully it's it's smarter spending than

Trump's Support From Latino Voters Holds Steady
"Edition from NPR News. I'm Scott Simon. President Trump is holding steady or doing better with Latino voters than he did in 2016, according to polls. That may be surprising. The president has called Mexican immigrants, rapists and drug dealers and his presidency is haunted with images of immigrant Children separated from their parents and crowded detention centers. NPR's Leila Fadel reports. His support is not waning, and most of it comes from men. Raimondo Torres is a staunch supporter of this president. The initially attracted me and keeps me tied to him is that he has taught Republicans how to not just win but no longer throw our faces and bodies in front of every punch that the left is willing to throw. Torres is Arizonan, ethnically Mexican and a devout Catholic, he says. What he likes is that Trump doesn't take any mess from Democrats or what he calls establishment Republicans. So on Election day he's voting for the president. Top of mind for him is the courts and the more than 200 judges trumps appointed in his time in office. My family's been in Arizona for more than 100 years. We don't see ourselves as immigrants. Sweets they are so very much is Arizonans and Americans to continue to treat us as if we're all still just fresh across the border, which most Republicans and a lot of Democrats would like to think we are just easily encapsulate us. To something that is not resounding and Torres is part of about or just over a quarter of Latinos who are strongly or somewhat in support of this president. Michelle May. Orga, a new Mexico based pollster, says the backbone of the support comes from men has many men in particular are a swing vote, their vote that we have to go and get And while Democrats will likely win the majority of Latino votes overall, the margins are narrower with men. A New York Times Sienna College poll found the vice President Joe Biden, leads by 34% points. Latina voters. But with Latino men, his lead is just eight points. Republicans will take a larger margin than maybe they have in the past or enough that you know it is starting to eat into the Democratic margin. The Republican Party has been courting the Latino vote for decades, says historian Geraldo Cadaver, who wrote a book on Hispanic Republicans. President Richard Nixon set the town. Nixon did it through a kind of politics of patronage and High level appointment, he appointed the first Hispanic treasure of the United States, a Mexican American woman and appointed Latinos toe other top positions. The big question is why Why is the number holding steady or in some place is going up slightly? Despite anti immigration policies and offensive language about African and Latino immigrants, I think I would point first to the development over a long period of time of Ah, partisan loyalty to the Republican Party and Latino Republican voters just identify as Republicans above all else, just like many Americans also could. Office says Latino voters vote on issues of religious freedom The economy trumps argument about a strong pre coded 19 economy for Latinos resonates, as does his law and order messaging. Many Latinos are cops, Border Patrol officers or in the military. Meanwhile, the Trump campaign has made a concerted effort to court the vote early. I think it's been kind of amazing to watch. I mean, in some ways, the Latinos for Trump Campaign, which started officially in the spring of 2019 has been relentless in Recruiting Latino voters that they're actually trying to increase and have been trying to increase trumps Latino support, not just kind of hold it, study or depress the turnout of Democrats. That's the first thing. Randall Avila, the executive director of the Orange County Republican Party, talks about when knocking on doors of other Latino voters in Southern California. He points to a low unemployment rates for Latinos, pre pandemic, the party's preference for school choice and lower taxes. I've never seen the Republican Party fight this hard to get Latino on African American votes. I can definitely understand whether some hesitancy based off some past comments or policies. But I don't believe that is the Republican Party of today. You know, we have a number of Latino candidates. A number of Latino Republicans who are really stepping up and taking center stage. A villa says he hopes that resonates because come November, the party will need the votes to flip the four congressional seats they lost in 2018 in Orange County and hold on to their county seat.

"While. The the Great Catholic reform picked up speed and she was one of those towering figures of the sixteenth century and became then a incredible beneficiary of the richness of the teachings that were gaining such strength in that time I think, for example, one of the formative figures in her early prayer life the Spanish Franciscan Francisco Osuna. Who wrote these beautiful books and spirituality that in the end shaped her then there's the the meditations by Saint, Peter's Volcan, Tara. we know as well as the influence of Ignatius of Loyola we know the influence of the Dominicans, so her autobiography became a Living Testament. To the strength and vitality of the Church in the sixteenth century is results the Catholic reform, but also the strength and vitality of Catholic spirituality authentic spirituality that every step of the way helped to shape her. So she became an away distillation, the synthesis of the the great spiritual reform that was accompanying the great institutional reform through Trent in through the great reforming movements in the reforming popes and the the JESUITS and others. All played out in the quiet drama. Of the life of one Carmelite nuns in Spain let's talk about Spain and that would have a profound influence on her life. Yes. Of course. But because of the effect that it had on her ancestors I, mean a her immediate family thinking of her grandparents. Keep break that open for us. Matthew we know that her grandfather and her father side Sanchez Toledo. Was a Jewish convert to Christianity Madonna. And in at one point, we know that he was investigated and probably condemned by the Spanish inquisition for possibly abandoning the Christian. Faith after he'd converted. Her father than the sunshines disobeyed. Was Eager to. Join into the Christian culture of the time. pure political reasons because I think he saw it as essential for the betterment of his family her mother batery stay off Mata was a deeply prayerful woman. and. So it's interesting that in the life of these great saints in Sixteenth Century. Spain. The movement of the Spanish inquisition, and we could devote an entire series to that conversation. The Spanish inquisition was was a constant factor in the lives of so many of these saints to think of John of the Cross I. Think of John of Avila. Who spent two years essentially under house arrest by the inquisition. What did we learn from this? What we see from this is that there there was this internal tension in Spain at the time of how to deal with the the Protestant revolt. But also the the changing culture of Spain at the time it's easy to forget that in it was only in fourteen ninety, two that the Spanish. That the Iberian Peninsula was united fully under the Christian banner. With the final defeat of the Moore's the result was a very difficult transition period as the Moore's. declined. The ended their supremacy especially in under Lucia. And it required rate evangelization but also great vigilance in rebuilding what was supposed to be a unified Spanish culture. And so the the inquisition Sponsored and directed by the crown it's always important now. was. Hyper. Vigilant. And the great saints of his era, all of them in one form or another had an encounter with the inquisition and three survive below was. No exception to this, and yet each of these saints dealt with the inquisition not by abandoning the church. In fact, by embracing the church, all the more because they knew they that they could have trust in the church that the right thing would happen, and in each of these cases, it did in the case of John of Avila he was given total exoneration, and in fact, his reputation was deepened and as a consequence of his time with the inquisition, he became one of the great living experts in the Church on Saint Paul. In the case of John of the Cross, in the case of Theresa Vavilov which we're GonNa talk more about I know the the great reforming movement that they wanted to institute.

"Your, First Film Science Fair at Sundance Wins Big award. The audience loves it. What did you learn from that first foray into directing? It's a lot more fun than investigative journalism I would say No, but I think I learned kind of the power of a hopeful story. I think hope and love. Are you know in short supply right now? And these kinds of stories can really change the way people think of the world and think of themselves, and so Walter came out of that in a way. I was looking for another story. That was also from my childhood. You know I started thinking what other worlds do I know really well. Not Everybody knows what other worlds made me feel warm and fuzzy as a kid and I think Walter Metadata was part of that. World for me, I grew up watching him every day as a kid with my grandmother and you know, he reminds me of my grandmother in many ways. He's the same age as my grandma there they have the same Hairdo, and so I started to wonder whatever happened to him, and you know in many ways he was he is. He was one hundred years ahead of his time. The first person I've ever seen that was gender queer. What we'd call now. It's just inspirational looking back. It's like. Could you were doing that at that time? You know nineteen forty in Puerto, Rico. You were being Walter McCullough. It's it's. Really. Inspirational so that's when I set out to find him. You set out to find out. What does that mean? So I started asking around univision and fusion and. Nano actually told me not Avila told me that there's a producer new. Who's also obsessed with Walter? Who you should talk to about this? Maybe he knows something so I called Alex, and he's like this is the weirdest thing I have. Another director who I'm supposed to talk to in ten minutes about doing a documentary about Alternate Telo, and I was like who is this person and his name is creamy taps, and he directed a film called. Dolphin, lover, which was a big fan of it's about a man who falls in love with Dolphin in the Florida like seaworld. And I had loved that film and I was like Oh amazing. I can't I mean I would love to talk to him. And we decided basically a ten minutes later on a phone call that we would all do the project together and yeah. It's been incredible experience Kareem track down. The niece of Walter through an estate sale, and then set up a phone call with Walter and it was. Yeah it was after the suit was. It was really insane to talk to. Walter Mark on the phone for the first time, and he said yes. Well that unprecedented access is notable because he is an has always been intensely private. So, how did you three persuade him to allow you to make the film? We rehearsed for that first conversation for hours and hours. What are the possible questions you could ask us? How would we answer it? You know what is what? What's the best angle on all of his questions? And we got on the phone, and he said Okay I. Have One question for you and we were like Mrs it. It's GonNa be really hard, and he's like. What are your astrological signs and so he went around. And like I'm a libra careens libra and Alex's deteriorates, and he said okay. That's great sounds good. I would love to do this film with you, so he was. He was in like in in from day one. He was psyched, but his idea of a documentary realized very quickly was very different from our idea he wanted. He was in front of a lens for fifty years. He was the most cameras trained person you can imagine. It's truly insane, and he has fifty years of rehearsed answers. He knows what he's going to say. To every question, you could ask him, and so it was really a process of spending a lot of time with him. At first, he thought this was going to. Just you know he was going. Going to be in full makeup and just telling the stories he always tells and I think it took a lot of time to explain to him that this might be different that this is you know we wanna see who you actually are without your makeup. What you do in your normal life and talking about bad stuff, particularly offensive to him. He did not want to talk about anything bad. You and that is the story of his life. You know he a lot goes wrong. He loses everything and even to get him to talk about. That was very difficult, so that was a big stumbling block for us in the first. Twenty interviews that we did with them so We've probably chat with him for like thirty five or forty days, and whenever we the cameras on kind of turned into an interview I remember. We told him once that we just wanted to. What he? What would he be doing if we weren't here? And he said reading a book, so he opened a book, and he started reading it, but he it was like onstage. He's A. He's a strained theater. Actor says like stage reading, or he was like having a conversation with a bunch was reading with his is.

Yes Henry Sequeira found guilty of wiping out an entire family and we were all on your show together and our mouths house collectively dropped absolutely stunned because you know the trial took more than a week. Lot of testimony lot of exhibits and the defense had their own theory about what happened and we were charged with the murder of brandy. Peter's girlfriend who is cheating on his wife with their child who they had together and her twin daughters the children the twins were six his little son Giovanni just three years old accused of quadruple murder but he said it was the drug cartel but the jury said otherwise. Take a listen state of Florida versus Tanneries Cigar. We the jury is follow says one of them concerning the murders brandy feeders. The jury finds the defendant is guilty of first degree murder as count two we the jury find as follows as account to indict the concern in the murder to my appears defendant is guilty of first degree murder as to count three we the jury find the defendant is guilty first grade murder as count for the jury and the defendant is guilty of first degree murder and this happened just three hours and forty five admits into deliberations. It was relatively short deliberation for the length of this trial and the complexity of it. So I along with everyone else was thinking okay probably a not guilty but it was the exact opposite it was guilty only six jurors not twelve right was Henry gerbers choice this was a retrial. At his first is trial it was eight to four for acquittal so the defense was feeling very confident. Going in they want this resolved he had served more than three thousand days in jail awaiting for a final verdict in the case and he got it and it was guilty. But what was so funny. Is that my first instinct. When there is a quick verdict is always always this is a conviction all the time because most of them are guilty? No no no that's not it. It's just formulaic laic. When there is a quick verdict it's a conviction that's it? This is just from my experience. I agree my experiences. Well Okay Okay but this time we all assumed the opposite because the defense put on such an extensive case because there was very rich in detail L. in their theory that the Mexican drug cartel did it but I think the prosecution and this also fits into our theory of how prosecutors generally are more successful during the retrials because they are able to fix their mistakes for instance. This Angel Avila Kenya's his DNA allegedly found at the crime scene. They brought in DNA specialist. Say No it wasn't his DNA so that was one thing they did. And then they you did an interview with Angel Villa Kenya's and he said no I was never there was just an actual drug trafficker okay. This was he was he was in school. Okay that's great. That's good I think you need to be accurate or listen over in Italy's our yeah. He's studying I don't know studying or machine now maybe like pharmacological studies. I really know what he's signing. But he is studying and he is in Italy Italy and better. He's in Italy than the United States number one. But number two he was an actual drug trafficker so his DNA allegedly being at. The scene was huge but again the prosecution was able to overcome that because they believe that was not his. DNA was a mixture and their specialists said. No that's not. His DNA jury believed it did not believe it was reasonable. That can Yoenis was there now. That was absolutely shocking to me right because there were so so many things. Get a couple of alleged confessions by other people involved with the case but none of it really panned out one hundred percent for the defense obviously as we see it was enough for reasonable. Doubt right right because they don't have to prove the case they have to present a reasonable alternative. Yeah so the prosecution theory question Mark Right which is what I thought perhaps could have happened. Yeah but it didn't and I believe the jury got it right but that's besides the point. Let's listen though to Henry Sager because this was a death penalty case so now. He's been convicted convicted quadruple murder and he decides to put on no defense when the issue is not guilty not guilty the issue is life life or death puts on. No Defense of the judge has to question him about it. You wish them to make argument opposition to that. And what is your thinking on Bacon socities deserved it. They feel guilty since sued. So you understand that taken. This action is gone increased likelihood as the the jury will come back recommended that penalty and ultimately order that they recommend it this. And that's what you want to have. So this is another shocking moment in this trial where it's life or death everything on the line. We have to talk about this. And he says don't make an argument for me don't present any evidence don't put on family members. Nothing says nothing to the completely uncomfortable with this decision. However ver the lead attorney Nate Prince? Yes nate prints. Nate print says that he obviously spoke to Sikora spoke to the ethics committee which all lawyers have to abide by their rules as do judges and they were okay. Hey with this idea of not presenting any type of case any type of defense and the reason behind it is that death when people aren't death. Row those appeals are looked at first that was there an amazingly the jury said life unanimously. We said like what do you think about what he did they did. I think it was an emotional reaction to the moment I think Henry Girl was you know. He spent three thousand days in in jail and his reaction to all of this and it means one of two things from my perspective but I think it was one hundred percent not strategic emotional reaction to the situation. The reaction is either one that he's completely defeated by the system. He believes he's innocent man and there's no way I'm going to get out of this so you might as well send me to death or I know what I did did and they got me. I committee quadruple murder. I deserve to be on death row. So it's one of the is the former not the latter. Well there's no way I'm not sure I'm not. I try to read the mind of a convicted quadruple murderer. Now but I'm thinking a lawyer right. I don't think that's just a I. Just don't think that was a good idea. Well it it turned out to be great and this is what I want to ask you. What does this tell us about criminal defense attorneys all right at the guilt phase? The defense puts on this incredible case. He is incredibly incredibly passionate. Witnesses is at times screaming and pleading with the jury and making all these arguments and laying out all this evidence and they find against him then in the penalty phase. He does nothing. He's tired he needs a NAB. Did you see how tired is bags under his eyes seems seems rest. He was stressed out absolutely seems like they had. The jury was making their decision. Regardless of what arguments were made by these all the time which was amazing to me in all phases sometimes jurors come up with reasons that we could not even surmise. So I I'm just. I am not happy. Happy with the strategic maneuvering but it worked out and I do believe in the end. Justice was served. Absolutely no we. We could spend a whole lot of time talking about what happens next but at the end of the day he's convicted. He has an uphill battle if he's going to win any appeal or try to get any sort of a new

I don't do cover-ups. He again called the Russian investigation a hoax after two years and forty million or thirty five million dollars end up being a lot more than that. No collusion.

But you, know a lot, of times, we speak too soon Well they say the, outbreak in. The, Democratic Republic of Congo has spread to a city surrounded by rebels they said creating. Challenger challenges that responders are dreading they said one probable case. Of one suspected case of emerged of the city, of OH in VR sees North.

Territory held by a feared you Ugandan insurgent group known as the allied democratic forces so they say for the first, time. We have a, confirmed case in an area with high insecurity This is a problem we were, anticipating at a problem at the same time we were dreading Okay in order for, us to stop Ebola from local regional and then global spread you need to get in there. You need to be. Able to take control and you need to nip it, in the bud Well if you can't get in there because it's an. Area.
