I'm excited to be talking some e Sports specifically some fee for today. Yeah, definitely. Thanks for having me so off top favorite FIFA version go all FIFA version. 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. Whole lot in terms of the gameplay mechanics what works what doesn't work the way the players move just so many little details that ultimately change the game. So, yeah, it's just it's just interesting people like certain FIFA's While others don't like some FIFA's well forgetting about fever first second, right?

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.

"Your daughter now she's almost getting college getting ready to hit the real world, and my youngest is my only daughter. She's in first grade right now. So all I got thank God while go yet but you've already been at some of these stages with you know being introduced to drugs, alcohol friends and stuff like that, and then dating, how did you handle this whole social life especially when your daughter now hitting college we're kind of advice. Would you give her about drugs alcohol dating and the whole bit? I relied a lot on on how my parents did it with me and the number one word is trust and it might I might sound a little bit like a cliche. But let me tell you that trust that I gave my kids and they really gave that trust back to me I I wanted them to have the freedom that I had when I was growing up fifteen sixteen and driving I wanted them to do that I I remember telling my daughter. I'm not going to drive you to high school as a junior I think that's I think. I didn't myself. I had a little small, Ford escort one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, escort them. My my parents bought me to get to school and become an independent kid I wanted the same thing for my kids and my daughter has done great. You know we we share that trust she knows that I give that trust and she knows that she feels not to violate that trust when she's out and about especially with the French I wonder Half Mon- I wanted to enjoy college life. It's great. That's what we wanted to do but it all has rules and has limited in has. Consequences and and we always let her go and telling her make sure you make the right decisions tonight. Yeah we are well said Victor, now about as far as your son now being in high school and having your dad running for political position that create some controversy has there been has been other bonds like for you during the campaign very been anything that your family they haven't had to deal with where they say, Hey, you know what? This was unexpected or something like that. They heard anything about you running for office. Yeah. It's they've heard about here in my town of South Texas but he's been good he he's a big into soccer and he's a he's having a good time. He loves the school he loves the community. There's there's something here that the that they they called me out a lot to call me a racist. They call me a lot of other names because I support the police and these people on the left don't do that and. And so some of that has affected my kids because you know they're they attack you on social media and kids are on social media now, and so they wonder what's going on. You know why they calling you all these names they don't even know you and I said, this is just the way they react this way when they don't know someone, they just call them. Names, but my son has been okay no one has called names. One has attacked them or anything like that as far as on on media social media. So He's been okay strong kid I mean, my kids are resilient. They've been they've been through a lot and especially when almost in their father get killed in the line of duty so they can they can hold their own. Amazing Yeah, and you mentioned now even the school systems victor like we've seen this seen a change in the police departments and all this other stuff we're seeing this in the school system I have one son that's in the public school system and the rest of mine are going to Catholic. He'll be only Catholic next year. But in New Jersey here the curriculum was passed this year. The eighth graders are taught about sex and I was. Like I there including that for the eighth grade education now I'm thinking like, what would I like certain certain things should be taught at home or disgust at home at your convenience or your beliefs or whatever. But the fact that they're putting stuff like this the school system. It's kind of scary to see how how they're just putting in these things whether you like it or not, and they're doing it is that you've seen somewhere. In his homeland goodness Oh my goodness that's the you hit the tip of the iceberg there. We're going through a big big issue with our school board right now, as I speak to you, a meeting will be held again tomorrow where they're trying to incorporate a plan that they call the cultural compensate competency action plan where they want to track microaggressions they WANNA change, certain literature books they WanNa have a cultural. Coach, to track these aggressions that for you and me might not be an aggression they defined as something that by me of verbal or nonverbal or the person might be aware or not aware that they actually did it. It could be a stair it could be something that The person doesn't even know that they're doing it but they want to track that and have that follow the students way up to the universe. And so now it's becoming a sense of this left side wanting to indoctrinate our. Rather than teach them I WANNA go back to having our schools teach our kids history critical thinking skills, mathematics English and and real life education that I. Think we're lacking of it. But this this other side that you mentioned is a very dangerous path I think we're going to. Yeah I think starting to see the results of that I mean, definitely offer it. All coincides with again the Family Unit European destroyed his I say right here if my kid was on TV window, he would better hope that the police got him before I got to them you know. And and I think a lot of the kids don't have that and we're seeing the results of that. So what about as far as the is going to be just a stepping stone for you do you have any other political aspirations here? Beyond City Council. Where do you see yourself going with this in the future? This is this is me I I want to really sort of our community. I WANNA be able to give back I'm really really engaged in our community I love Southlake Texas That's why we chose it here because it's a, it's a secure place eighteen security obviously is primarily for me. I want to see the town to continue to be that way just just heard this morning that the chief of Police of Dallas. A stepped away and resigned. They have a lot of issues that are going on. We don't want that to happen in our in our town. I want this town to continue to be safe. I want our schools to continue to be safe and our school system. Here is one of the primary school public school systems in the country, and I wanted to continue like that. There's a lot of positive things that happened here in town. Unfortunately, some people wanNA painted as something that it's not and that's what I want to be focused on and be able to represent the citizens and really make my decision mile my decisions based on what benefits. The citizens of South Lake. Yeah Yeah. Very well set victor like I said, I'm not saying it's politics myself but I think strengthening the family unit funding, our police officers. So they are better trained better equipped I think that's more common sense than anybody else. So I love what you're doing and what you stand for working listeners go to find out more about you in the upcoming book. So. They could go to victory for south. Dot..

"The own father it could be a stepfather it could be an uncle. It could be a father figure that that teaches our young. Children to respect authority and how to interact. But some of these kids that have been out there rioting and looting have never actually even interacted with anyone that's telling them the word no has told them consequences for the actions have given them consequences for actions, and so they're out there freefall and they have no idea how to. It's not an excuse for them, but it's also an important factor in what's happening in our society when because now we're seeing the effects of not having the father present in our home and and and giving out the discipline given out that authority figure. And taking that further like we see all of the black lives, matter activities throughout the country and they're hoping mission statement would really just blows. My mind on their website is that they're out to destroy nuclear family unit so I if you're if you're out to take down nuclear family unit on the police whereas any type of disciplinary authority coming from like. I don't understand how could that either one of those things be good for the society at large desert just kind of doesn't make sense to me why people would even WanNa see that no, and I've seen it in my law enforcement career in not just because the statistics backup what I've seen but I've seen the people that have arrested. I've seen the. Individuals that I've dealt with in the criminal element. The first thing you see is a lack of the father and I'm not and I'm not saying about single mothers have done a tremendous job. My oldest sister is a a single mother has done a tremendous job raising my nephews. It can be done and she has taken on the role that authority figure and has put consequences. So my hat goes off to all those single moms out there they do a tremendous job with their kids. But but going back to. What you said about the father it is it is a big issue. From the very beginning or no they're not. They're I've seen it the arrest and it trickles down and it's a vicious cycle that is very difficult to break. Yeah. I. It definitely isn't. It's in every statistical category across the board whether that be kids that are runaways and homeless whether they be into drugs and alcohol pregnancy suicide or across the now all across the board the numbers go up with that without that father's presence in the home and I know that you are. You got a book coming out on the talks about I. mean. Obviously, the incident they do major incident here is just it's an incredible story. Wait till we expect to see the book to be dropping and and is it something that you're you'd be all right with your kids reading it would there be things in there that they're gonNA find out about this entire story that they don't know as of yet. actually, they're going to be able to read it by the of the book is agent under fire. That's that's the title agent under fire, a murder manifesto, and hopefully we're looking at a date of late October. So in a little bit over a month, hopefully, for release, I'm waiting for the release date from the publisher. This book is is going to talk about a little bit by my life and growing up on the border, my law enforcement career, and it'll it'll really. In detail give the the details about my assignment in Mexico and the shooting but also the second half of the book talks about our border security are illegal immigration system and and and illegal aliens, sanctuary cities, and things that I've seen the cartels and what they've done to our communities. By all comes down to not having our border southern border secure and and I also talk about policing and what's been going on with our police departments and how elected officials are somehow now policing and making decisions for chiefs of Police and sheriff's was I completely. Disagree with when he to allow our law enforcement officers to continue to do their jobs and not have their hands tied and so all that is in the book and I'm very proud the that it's that it's coming out I've been working on for almost four years and I'm yeah absolutely my kids might learn some details in there that might know about the about the actual shooting like specific details I wanted to share them but I I think it's important to show the impact that it had the sacrifice in specially out the gay for our country. Awesome stuff and I would love to see if he made it to like a a series or even a a movie about the story here 'cause it's really is just incredible I and more people should definitely know about it and walking this back over here to you as a father now victor. Daughter. Now, she's almost getting college get ready to hit the real world, and my youngest is my only daughter. She's in first grade right now. So I got a thank God a while ago yet, but you've already been into some of these stages with being introduced to drugs, alcohol friends and stuff like that, and then dating how did you kind of handle this whole social life? Especially, your daughter now hitting college what kind of advice did you give her about drugs alcohol dating and.

"Thank you for having me back. I'm very excited to be back with you. Have a chance to see you this time when we Let's get a little update. How won't do the kids now? To. My daughter is now twenty and she is a senior at Saint Edwards University in Austin. My son is fifteen. He'll be sixteen in a week and a half. Already, starting to dry and so family's growing quick. What is your junior year or senior year? He's he's He's a sophomore and yeah, and my daughter is a senior in college. Years before the Empty Nest settles in there right around the corner. Give my new listeners here. Just hit us with a little bit of an update about your background and what you do yes. I'm a retired federal agent special agent with Immigration and Customs. Enforcement. Homeland. Security Investigations. Maybe. Some of you have seen your your prior interview with me. They know that I was shot in the line of duty back in two thousand eleven when. Special Agent Hamas-fatah and I were on assignment in Mexico tragically especially. Suppose the lost his life and gave his life for our country. I was wounded three times with the shot three times. Have Really. A sacrifice in in really a turning point for our family and that just for me but my entire family and friends, and so we're we're in a much better place and agreed to be a part of this community. Yet the story is absolutely incredible victor. Those aren't familiar with it I. I highly recommend you check out more about it and I know that now you've thrown your hat into the political arena here, you decided to get involved and you're running for council. Right city. Council. City Council in Southlake Texas City Council salaries has. What made you decide to run in getting involved in the political atmosphere here, which is very, very toxic as we know long across the country and what was your family's reaction to you making that decision? My family is very, very supportive of me doing it. You know when I when I retired medically retired from. Law. Enforcement career kind of kind of went through some turmoil thinking, what am I gonNA do now and? I've been in public service. Most of my life was the age of twenty three and that's what I know how to do and I figure. You know what? This is a perfect place for me to be able to give back to the community, all the experience that have of all the places that I've lived and worked, and really share my expertise with the community and try to help my community be better than it is now and continue to be as great as it is now as well. Yeah. Well, said it just seems like it makes logical sense to have people that have. been there been on the street involved in all this stuff to start getting involved because we have. So many of these Polish politicians that are really just there they they just fit the shoot and they're just the face in a name and they speak well, and they read speeches and all that stuff but they never been there and done that and I try to avoid politics as much as I can on the podcast here. But obviously, this year twenty twenty has been just insane. And we've been hearing a lot of these calls from for defunding the police which to me sounds like the stupidest idea I've ever heard especially as a family man with four kids myself that are out there What has the response thing in your neighborhood here? What is your take on the entire defunding the police Hashtag they've created it's incredible as well and and Obviously, I'm a big supporter law enforcement and even in ours in our town, there's a group that has. Has Formed to want to defined specifically defunding police but specifically, our school resource officers, we have a police officer from our city place that each and every campus, and you know how how because of the school shootings and it goes further and beyond those duties at that our school resource officers do engage with the kids they're able to really have interaction with them on a daily basis. This this goes further beyond the rest allies when they interact with police on the street and we've been seeing what happens when when there's no respect for authority and so I'm a big supporter of long to keep those SRO's. Unfortunately there are there are people out there that want to fund them they want to disarm them they want to replace him with social workers or psychologists which I disagree with. Yeah I I'm right there with Ya and now I mean you have obviously your son just hit the road here. You said he's driving now as well. So. Coming from your side of this as a law enforcement officer by how do you? How do you approach telling your son had to deal with police? Should he be pulled over eating your daughter for that matter? How do you tell your kids how to handle a police involve situation? I think. It might be a little bit of enumeration because they've been around long enforcement and. Other law enforcement officers around their whole life. But I've had that conversation with them as well. Anyway and. Know, it starts at the home in it's a matter of respecting authority and it's not just a police officer as the teacher. It's the person at the restaurant. It's anyone and in a position of authority or someone where you have to show respect to that person and so I have talked to them of encounters how you how you respect to police officer when you get pulled over the. Police officer has no idea who you are. He's there to if it's a speeding ticket, he wants to find out who it is a person that's behind the wheel or and the person who else in the car. So you have to be able to give that officers the opportunity to at least get to do that and by cooperating with police as simple as cooperate them, let them do their job. And you'll get your ticket or not get your ticket away. But I. Did Not to not to challenge the police or try to fight the police just when they're trying to do their job and and so we definitely have that that that information going out tonight just to my kids but the members of the community as well. Yeah and I think the message is very important. I? was just dry I drive on the weekends here and just this weekend I. Drive down the Jersey shore and I'm picking up one of these bars clubs and in the parking lot I couldn't really get out there. We were boxed in like a little bit of an argument going on in this young Guy, young January your twenty one year old or something like that. He pushes the police officer and then immediately go and they start arresting and then they start laying I'm Just thinking in my head like where did they get the idea that it's okay to put your hands on a police officer like as if it's somebody at the bar or something like that I I think I think that's what this message has done and it's Kinda poisoning, these kids minds and how they should treat police and I know you've heard this before Alec because of your show and. And it starts at the home and and because of a lack of the father, many many times in the statistics prove that is that they've never they've never gone run up with a person of authority a father figure it doesn't even some things have to be.

Avila says Tigers aren't ruling out Hinch, Cora for manager

"Episode and as a refresher here are the truth and one life. Number One. All. The Navajo Code talkers were marines. Number two, the Japanese eventually broke the Navajo. Code. Number three, the code talkers were. If, you're being shot at and you have a message to send put down your rifle and send the message. Did you find out which one is ally. Let's, count it down and start with number three the code talkers were told. And you have a message to send put down your rifle and send the message that. Is True Judith explained even though almost all the Navajo Code talkers were excellent marksmen they were good shots they were told that the messages took priority on top of that she mentioned times where they were transmitting messages for over thirty hours straight and they didn't get the same sort of art that other soldiers did because they were too important to the mission communication must continue. Which means the code talkers must as well? Next is number two the Japanese eventually broke the Navajo Code. That is. What that's delight as Judith explained because of the complexity of the Navajo Language and the code that the original code talkers develop on top of that language, it ended up being the only unbroken spoken code in modern warfare. That means number three is also true. All the Navajo Code Talkers were Marines even though Judas recounted the story of how Chester in some code talkers were asked to work for the army at one point all the code talkers were marines. That just about wraps up our time together today before we go the last thing I like to do on each episode is to share how much time and effort went into creating this episode, and that is not something that most podcasts. And that's exactly why I'm sharing this information. If there's one thing that surprising to most people who are new to podcasting or have never created a podcast before it's just how much time goes into creating. So I figure maybe if you find out more about how much time and money goes into creating a podcast like mine. Maybe you'll start to appreciate all those podcasts that you listened to for free just a little bit more. Would that said today's episode took a total of twenty seven to create and cost thirty eight dollars and ten cents out of pocket. As. I. Always do I WanNa make it clear that time and cost is only my time for this one episode in other words that twenty-seven hours does not include the countless hours of my guest time researching the subject matter that we talked about. It also doesn't include the time that it takes for me to do podcast related things that are not a part of creating this one episode. For example, the time it takes to maintain the based on a true story website, social media email, and all those other little things outside creating a podcast episode that are required to make a podcast. Similarly on the expensive side, that thirty eight dollars and ten cents is just for things specifically for this one episode, which is mostly research material. It does not include all the podcast related expenses that go beyond making a single episode. For example, the cost of the microphone that I'm talking into right now that cables that hook up to the microphone, the audio interface, the computer, the software, all the PODCAST and website hosting costs on on. All those things take time to set up and maintain and cost money that goes beyond things associated with this one episode. But they're all things that are required because if I didn't do those things, there wouldn't be any episodes of based on a true story at all. In a nutshell this podcast may be free to listen to, but it is not free to create, and that is why I'm so thankful for the wonderful people who are helping to support the show financially so we can keep it going. So. If you enjoyed today's episode I, hope you'll consider helping support the next episode over at based on a true story podcast, dot com slash support, and as a bonus, you'll get access to hours of exclusive content on the producers feet right now, there are fifty three Minnesota's covering a different fictional movie each time in the way that they use real history or events to make them seem a little more realistic.

That many sewed. We learn some of the real crystal skulls and two conspiracies that the movie used to help sell the realism of what is otherwise a very fictional story. there.

"Was the Japanese the Japanese used to invade at night and it was just a terrible mistake. So twelve were actually killed in the line of duty and the thirteenth was killed by friendly fire in the poor. Corman who was shot him never got over it. I'd been told so chester you snow of his family and he said he just he couldn't get over the fact that he killed a fellow marine. Yeah I can only imagine the guilt that would would come with that. Yeah, and yet they've been told do not stand up in the foxhole if go to the bathroom user helmet, which is not very healing but. It's it's not, but it's also it goes back to I mean, I haven't experienced voice I can't I can only assume, but there's so many like. I would make mistakes like that I. Make I make stupid mistakes all the time at home without the pressures of battle and and people shooting at me and all this stuff, and so I can only imagine you know I would I would be somebody that would make make a mistake like not remember things. I would I mean I I feel great sympathy for this guy because it was a natural instinct you gotta go and you're outside already. Why. Not? Yeah. You don't think about it but thank you so much for coming onto chat about windtalkers I. Know You had the honor of working with Chester we talked throughout this about on his memoir called Code. Talker the first and only memoir by one of the original code talkers of World War Two. For someone listening to this, them know a little bit more about your book and where they can get a copy as well as learn more about your work. Sure. The book is really a first person account as told to me by Chester, I recorded just stories from three years, and then I arranged them all in kind of a book format wrote them down and got to publish, but the book came out from Penguin. It's spent a bestseller ever since you came out in June two thousand eleven it's still is it selling more now than in has for the last five years? It's incredible. It's really many people have said to me. I was absolutely there in the Foxhole, with them I and women as well as men have said that so I feel like in writing this with Chester, we've improved preserved such an important part of history. You can find the book pretty much any bookstore and of course, Amazon and many museums carry it. It's pretty much anywhere that any other mainstream book would be. It's been a life changing experience working with chester learning about the Navajo. Culture and the code talkers and I feel so blessed that I've been able to contribute some small amount towards preserving that incredible history. I'll make sure to add at Lincoln and the show notes for this. Thank you so much for sharing some of that information with us here today.

"Their primary objective but they were so good at everything else as well that they were sought after as raiders and just all kinds of things that the marines might need them for. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's a great way of phrasing that because that's exactly what I was thinking I was the movies year they're pretty much just there to be the code talkers and that's it like they're not allowed to do anything else but it sounds like a very, very different. It was very, very different. Yes. They did a lot of your teams I mean whenever the Marines could find time for them to do other things were times when they couldn't because the messages were crucial the messages sent by code talkers once so fast and in the midst of battle that was crucial. They couldn't use sacral challenge the artillery shirt because hours later it was meaning was right yeah. No time is time is crucial in battle. I can only assume I have not been in battle, but I would assume that that would be very important for sure. If you were in charge of directing the movie. What's one key thing that you would have changed about it Certainly. I would show much less Nicholas cage and much more coach. Another thing in that threw me off was the reaction to the food I think that both Benghazi White Horse took a look at the food kind of look. At. It and Chester had told me Oh my gosh. The marine food was so good in basic training and said, no one ever left a morsel on their plates. Now later on when they got to the islands, they didn't always have the best supplies but he said they ate everything they could get their hands on anyway but I think what I would have shown is at the end of the movie, I would show how our attitude as a nation had changed towards the code talkers because winchester died and he was last the twenty nine original code talkers. His funeral was incredible I. mean the Marines flew officers out from Quantico, Virginia to Albuquerque. Funeral. The governor of New Mexico had all the flags flown and half staff her engine past Navajo nation. Presidents and to the funeral, there were something like five or six thousand motorcycle honor guards taking part I mean it. Blow me away and the funeral was in albuquerque but chester was buried in the national cemetery in Santa Fe, and the police closed the V, a five miles of freeway, the tweeden Albuquerque and Santa Fe for the funeral cortege. So there were cards over to the side people saluting from the side of the road. There were people on the Overpasses Fire Trucks Crows waving. And that's something I would have loved to see a movie now, of course. Haven't happened yet when wind talkers was made, but the fact that we came to so appreciate. Our Code talkers once we understood the history. Is Huge and so if I were making a movie now that would definitely be part of it. That would be an important part of it to show. Wait learn decimation. Yeah. No it sounds like that would be a very a great way to honor his memory. You know it was very different than the implication that I got. Watching the movie. Very, are different from the failing. To even the Red Sox sent him flowers to thank him because they believed broke the curse of the Bambi know when they finally won a world series again. Okay. Well, that's a that's another story. How does that? How does how does he tie into the Red Sox? Well. I'm getting into Chester. Not The movie, but it's it is interesting what the head He was in Austin speaking at Harvard and the Red Sox got wind of that and you know how superstitious baseball players. And they called up someone at Harvard and said, Hey, this guy is here in town. Do you think we could get him to throw the game ball out and give us your blessing? So, he got a police escort to fenway, Park. And he got there. Justin Jain to throw the game ball out three strikes and against the team of the West. And they started to do better. And he went back home and during the world series itself when they were down, they called him at Hoffman said, Chester thank you give us another blessing and said sure I can and he gave them another blessing and after that, they won every game of the world series and won the world series or the first time since they traded Babe Ruth to the Yankees Eighty six years before. So. Him they sent a big. White Roses and the courage is said, thank you. That's great. That's such. A great story I had no idea. Right. had. Life. Circling back to the movie real real briefly. What is one of the biggest myths about the code talkers because of the movie? Oh, it's the biggest one. Is that the Marines actually the marine bodyguards actually killed code talkers there was not a single instance were marine guard killed a code talker. Now perhaps they've been told that they. Had to its captured look immenent. But none of the co- docker separate got captured and none of them were killed the way Nicholas Cage Killed Roger Willies, character white horse with a grenade or something. was grenade and it was pure Hollywood that didn't happen. Let's you mentioned earlier. There's Four hundred twenty and only thirteen of them died young. And one. was killed by friendly fire because he made the mistake of standing up at his Fox hole in the middle of the night. To, take a leak and he got shot because they thought he.

"Insight into how the military treatment of the code? Talkers? Changed over the course of the war from it sounds like you know from the early forties when they when they started to towards the end of the war well I think the most important thing is the marines realized how valuable they were and out of the four hundred when he code talkers that eventually fought in the war, only thirteen were killed and they were always with the front lines. So they were always in positions of Ger- so it shows you how carefully they were protected and the Marines were told over an over these guys are making the difference for us some happenstance, these guys you're in trouble. As well as we're. level. And so they were the coach chuckers were well respected. And I think they. I mean, they certainly had A. But it was a good thing that the marines recognized how crucial they worked to the war esser. Now, you mentioned that they were only in the marines, but then you have to marines were talking about how crucial they were. Do you know if any other branches of the military wanted to use them as as code talkers for their operations? Yeah. The last night, the Chester Fahd on was in cower, and that was an islands that was being attacked by the army. They were trying to conquer that island and they needed coach offers and chester and a couple others one over just for a few days to help them with a specific battle that they needed them for. And while they were there, one of the soldiers captured them and held up forty five Chester's head and said. You are jammed. JAP. In Marine Reform Euro spying gonNA shoot you right here and Chester convinced him to go talk to his communications officer and of course, the communications officer nearly fainted on the spot and said wait no no. But it was. Because it had been suggested that the army early on the thing, you snap a whole code talkers STU. and. The letter I've found in my research from the army responding to the suggestions basically said. What the heck can a bunch of stupid Navajo kids do that an Army Man Kam Do. And it was very much an irony that they ended up needing to borrow code talk burps yeah. When you were talking about that the guy holding the gun to chester the the first thing comes to mind. Is, there's a scene in the movie where granted you know they're all marines but there's a scene where I don't remember which character it was, but he he tells Benghazi that he looks like a Japanese soldier like he stole a uniform and. It was a big one guy who was the kind of pain in the neck through. Forgot. But yeah. The same guy that you know we didn't want him to come to the poker table yeah. He was kind of the the the racist one throughout the entire movie. But yeah, that that story kind of sounds like that. I. Wonder if maybe they they pulled some inspiration from that maybe other branches of the military and how they reacted to them sounds like there may have been more prejudice involved than the Marines. There might have. And actually historic glaze many native American tribes are related to Asians. Who came across the Land Bridge. From Asia to Alaska. So there is a relationship there but it was doing because he was. Well Yeah Yeah. I'm curious because you mentioned some other native Americans and. What about the Navajo language made that worked for? Co. talking in not some of the other languages was it primarily because it wasn't written down and they knew that if it's not written down, then the Japanese are not going to know what what it is. That was a big deciding factor and another large deciding factor wasn't the time there were about two hundred, fifty thousand Navajos on the reservation and many of them joined the military's. So there were plenty of young Navajo men who could. Be Used as how shockers now think some of the other native languages were just as complex and could have been used and actually thirty three tribes have been recognized by Congress as having provided code talkers but it was a different kind of situation was mainly in Europe and it was primarily a communications officer overhearing a couple native Americans talking to each other and then saying, Hey, could you send a message in that language and they jammed up for a while but it really wasn't a. Per Se the way the Navajo Code was okay. was just speaking the language not necessarily code on top of it sounds like yes. Okay one of the things the taking a step back from the movie and just looking at it. Overall, a big impression that I got was that the code talkers were only trained to be radio operators. The they were in the battleground, but it was really only because they needed to be there to transmit messages and such, and of course, mentioned earlier, they have the marine bodyguards assigned to them, and so the overall idea that I got watching this was that. For lack of a better term, the code talkers were seen more as just a a supporting role to the rest of the fighting force. How would you say that the movie did showing the roles that the code talkers played during the war? Well. I think they were misleading in that they didn't have them working with each other. But also the code talkers when they went through basic, they got the highest marks on the rifle range. They were sharp shooters, almost all of them were sharpshooters or better, and so it was difficult for them to be carrying a weapon but should know that they couldn't use it if there was a message to be sent that that had to take priority and. The movie. I felt didn't create the right. Atmosphere for the way. Things worked between the code talkers themselves depending on each other and also between the code talkers in the Marines because they won't occasionally get special assignments the code talkers would and they did them. So well, the marine sought after them to do anything else they could fit in besides being a coach Chucker so then. The movie kind of implied they're just supposed to. Code talk and that was.

"Because. They couldn't replace the the original guy. So it was it was rough. That was a rough doody. While we were there any situations then where? They were forced to adapt in some way I'm thinking of you know if if you have a four on land and four on the ships particularly on land, you're in the middle of the battle and that's almost a bottleneck where you know what happens if they're incapacitated or or killed or whatever that might be. Then they have to revert to not using the code then I would imagine that's what they'd have to revert to. But the four were not altogether it was too and. And then. The there were the extras that are ready to jump in that they were needed. Okay. Okay. Now I was imagining all four together was like that seems like an an easy target. You know the Japanese may not know where they are but they also ever okay what you're saying earlier by the Japanese being able to tell the Nazi no, what they're saying but they know that there's somebody over here start bombarding right away seems like well, if they're all four together, that's going to be an issue. Trying Not to. Be Bad for birth with bunge stone know that in the movie we do see that Sergeant Enders gets a a Silver Star for something that he and private Yahtzee did together during the battle and as I was watching this again, another assumption that I got while I. was watching that. Ben Yahtzee did not get the metal because he wasn't white going back to the racism there that we saw in the movie, the commanding officer the gives it to sergeant enders. He great job and enters turns says you know Yahtzee did it to and the commanding officers just like keep it up good work. Just kind of passes him over. Yeah Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. Very feel of the code talkers got any kind of commendation until two thousand one when I got the congressional gold medal for the original code talkers and the reason the marines gave was because code talking was a new category in the Marines and they did everything by the book in there were no rules book for how a code talker earnings self accommodation the few that did gary commended were commended for other jody's than they were assigned to maybe even on the. They were talking duties but were regular marine tasks, and so the rains got around the idea of prejudice that way and. I can't speak to the idea. A prejudice, the way the movie showed it. Because Chester didn't actually see that. But it does seem to me that the code talkers were so important to the war effort they really could have done something to try to get them some sort of recognition earlier on in two thousand one when the original guys Scott the congressional gold medal only five of them were still allies. Yeah. That's a longtime after the war. Yeah. Yeah. Fifty years later. It was it was the coach talking the existence of it, but a top secret thing like maybe that would be one reason why they didn't receive commendation or maybe they weren't allowed to talk about it or anything like that. Just a code in general tends to be more top secret. It was chopped say Grit and when the Navajo Code talkers left the Marines after the end of the war, they were told they couldn't talk to anyone about it. Not Their families not there. You know friends nobody and it was unruly from secrecy till nineteen, sixty eight. So that was twenty three years, but if they had recognized them then. In Thousand Nineteen, Sixty Eight, they would've had a considerably larger mount still alive to receive the honor and they're still talkers. Their history says their families never knew they were code talkers because they died and the family never found out they were Navajo code talkers they died before they were allowed to talk about it. Wow. Yeah. That's that's a great point about how in the sixties. Would have been a perfect time to when you come out that you know this is a thing that happened during the war. All right. This is a great time to give commendations to the people involved in that. Yeah, and at that point, we were using computer generated codes for communication. They weren't going to use a spoken again, and that's why they relent release tip from secrecy. Chester had put the whole in the back of his memoir at with his corrections. He said the navy got a few things wrong one neighbor least it. Was No by. And we went through it word by word by word imports fascinating and it was incredible to me to see his memory is steel trap memory. Yeah. To be able to recount it so many years after the fact, I'm trying to remember what I had for breakfast yesterday. I know. ME. Too. That's impressive. Wow. Wow. That's just speaks to the type of person that he was. That's that's impressive. Yeah. He was really an incredible man knowing him literally changed my life. So how do you think the movie did portraying the Navajo Culture? The little bit of Culture portrayed I've found a couple exceptions to for once Jiang. The Navajo man was hit by artillery. He wouldn't yell or scream the way that Benghazi did when he was hit in the movie. I ask Chester about that and I said, well, why not and he said we didn't draw attention to ourselves. If we needed to manage someone else who column for us way just slide they're quiet. Exact opposite of what I would do. That again. Who? Heading back to the movie, we see some interesting character arcs in the people who are fighting alongside the code talkers. We talked earlier about enders and Sergeant Henderson they start to. Be Friends, the code talkers that they are assigned to protect. You know initially, they were both against it, and then you know towards the end we see you know Sergeant Henderson playing their her Monica alongside private white horse. You know he's playing on his flute playing harmonica either they're playing together. Can you give us some.

"You know you would think that they would have an especially Chester's group since they were the original twenty nine coach talkers and I asked him about that and he said, you know we prove Jin basic training that we were jammed good marines all the newspapers were writing about them. They could hardly believe their proficiency on the rightful ranging in all of the Marine Corps training, they called them, Superman and. He said marines only care if you're a good marine and he said we their backs, they had our backs. I never experienced any kind of prejudice. Did say that they referred to them as chief they call them hate chafed come on over here and he sa-. But I don't believe that that was any kind of a derogatory that it was said with derogatory intent said they you know being a chief as good thing. Is, reconsider. It prejudice king is that but he said was it was used liked term of respect and he said when we had missions that we were San doubt on if they needed a bunch of men for mission at Niger something, he said. The Marine. Officers always wanted the Navajos to be part of their mission. He said, they trust us and said with good breeze. Damn good earnings. That part of it honestly just from what you were saying earlier with the boarding schools and then leading to the movie portrayed things honestly I expected a completely different answer like I expected there to be some inherent racism I mean that's that's unfortunate but you know it's just something I expected. So I'm glad that that there wasn't I'm glad to because it leads the guys over there felt as though they were a team all of the weather they were Navajo or white or Hispanic they were team. And Chester. Cared about his fellow marines he really did, and of course, this is only one man's experience and he was quite an incredible man and perhaps of theirs had different experience. Yeah. That's that's true. That's true. Well, heading back to the movie something else that movies do a lot of time is they change up the time line so I'm curious how the time line here stacks up to history. Earlier in the movie, they mentioned that this is a new code and. Just before that, in the movie, we saw a date being nineteen forty-three, and then later from that, we find the battle the big battle in the movie as the Battle of Saipan which we know from history began in June of nineteen forty four. So would it be safe to assume that the US didn't start using Navajo code talkers until later in the war like forty, three or forty four No actually, it was in new code to them unsure because the old shackle Code Ben Ron for a long time. But Chester, and hit the other twenty eight men who designed the coat with him were recruited and sworn in as Marines on May Fourth of nineteen, forty two just a couple of months after Pearl Harbor was bombed and they design the code after they all house basic training they were allowed. You know what the secret mission they. Volunteered for was until pass basic training, and then they design the code and in September of Nineteen, forty two they were sent in to battle chester went to Guadalcanal and the some of the elders went other points but I, think the time on fairly accurate and I think was new code as far as any the other marines were concerned but they did start using code talkers right away after the code West Design in one thousand, nine, hundred, forty, tear. Okay now, that brings up an interesting point because you mentioned the chester is one of the ones that helped design the code in the movie. All we pretty much see is they're they're being taught the code that already exists. So were there difference rounds of code talkers that were then if chester is part of the original than they trained others at came in exactly you got it right on it was so successful. Quick Unbreakable that the Marines immediately wanted more coach talkers. So they recruited actively young Navajo men and there were about four hundred Egyptian men trying just talkers and they were trained by existing coach offers two men always stayed in San Diego to train the new upcoming code talkers. I'm GonNa just assume then and give give the movie a little bit of benefit of a doubt here saying that this is happening later in the movies time line maybe they're just a an alternate. Level of it. That's true because they didn't show the just signed that the code which was fascinating. It was already in use by the time we get to win talkers the movie. So they were being trained in San Diego and then sent out. Yeah. But that left when questioned that left it as though maybe some white guy. The code or maybe the Marines. The code was not the case. That's I. Mean that's that's exactly as I was watching the movie win. Ben, is in there in the training room they you know they arrive and they're they're being trained on this code. What I assumed was this is a code that the marines came up with as you know, maybe based on the Navajo language but they came up with this and they're teaching it to other Navajo to able to pass it on you know. None of the Marines could make heads or tails of it they. Arrange. Any non never marines. Code I mean, I guess that's when you have a good code. When nobody else understands it right Exactly exactly that leads into something else I'm curious about because the way that we see things in the movie, we get kind of an idea for how the code talkers worked and you mentioned this a little bit earlier you know on the on the battlefield in groups of four. But then we also see in particular there's a scene where they're talking to someone to believe on the US California to bombard coordinates on the island and we see cutting between Ben and Charlie on the island, and then cutting to someone else I. Don't remember if we get his name or not but another Navajo Code talker on the ship. And meanwhile because cut to Japanese and they're kind of intercepting are they under water? Is this even English Like they don't know what's going on. But how did the movie do showing how they communicated there have to be a another co talker foreign. I'm assuming there as you mentioned, they were Marines, which, of course, you know division of the Navy but on all the ships that did each ship have to have a code talker to like how how did they communicate back and forth they would have four code talkers some the land for code talkers on the ship one of. The ships at least that could bombard the land and they communicate back and forth about what needed to be done, and usually two more code talkers canister them wherever they were needed. An awesome John six guys would be transmitting messages or thirty six hours at a time. No sleep no food I don't know how the heck they did it and when the Marine Division went to an art in Australia, the coach Hawkers weren't.

"Today we're going to learn about the historical accuracy of two thousand, two's wind talkers. That's the film directed by John Woo starring Nicolas Cage Adam Beach about the Navajo code talkers during World War Two. To help us separate fact from fiction. There is perhaps no one better to do that than my guest today Judith Osceola Judith is a writer and author of Chester Nez is fantastic memoir titled Code. talker. The first and only memoir by one of the original Navajo Code talkers of World War Two. Before we get Judith on the line. No let's set up our game to truce ally. If you're new to the show, here's how it works. I'm about to say three things. Two of them are true and that means one of them is a lie. You Ready. Okay here they are number one. All the Navajo. Code talkers were marines. Number two the Japanese eventually broke the Navajo Code. Number three, the code talkers were told if you're being shot at and you have a message to send put down your rifle and send the message. Got Him. Now as you're listening to our story today, your challenge is defined the two facts scattered throughout the episode in by a simple process of elimination you'll be able to find out which one is the lie, and of course, we'll do a recap at the end of the episode to see how well you did all right now, it's time to connect with Judith to chat about the historical. Of windtalkers. Let's start the same way. The movie does by introducing us to one of the main characters, a Navajo tribesmen by the name of Benghazi and in a movie he's played by Am Beach. As, we all know it's common for movies to change the names of real people or make a composite character who's based on multiple real people or of course, sometimes, they just make characters up altogether. So where does the character of private Benghazi Fall? was he a real person? No, it was not a real person. It's really impossible for me to know whether he was a composite of several people. He coulda ban. He had kind of that shoot Navajo sense of humor. They have a tend to have a very self deprecating sense of humor and I loved when he got on the buzz and he was so surprised to see his friend played by Roger Willy and Rodriguez said to I didn't want. To think you were the best we had that very typical Navajo humor. So they tried to make him seem Navajo but he was not a real person and I've never seen the ozzy's spelled that way. Yell she is a rather common Navajo last name, but it's spelled Y as easy I e and there were a couple of different code talkers with the last name, the surname Yahtzee. But I certainly don't think they were bad. But I don't think he was meant I think he was meant to be a fictional character resembling a real code talker. Okay. Well, what about on the flip side of that? 'CAUSE NICHOLAS CAGE is character Sergeant Joe Enders Denote. If he was real character or not he was totally made up they usually gives a pretty good indication of how historically accurate a movie is when both the main characters are made up. Yeah. He could have been based on someone that someone who wrote the movie new, but I couldn't find him anywhere in his straight. Speaking of the historical side, the movie doesn't give us a lot of historical context around why the Navajo language was used by code talkers. The only explanation that I remember getting was Jason Isaacs character major minutes he's explaining to than Corporal Joe Lenders that the Marine Corps developed a new code based on the Navajo language, and there's another line of dialogue later on in the movie that mentioned something to the effect of how the Code Talker can do in two and a half minutes what used to take our to do. She can give us a little more historical context around this why the military use the Navajo language I'd be happy to really what had happened as the Japanese were lead early kicking our butts in the Pacific and we were attempting to hop from island I'll and conquering islands between Austrailia in. Japan, we get close off to Japan to actually attack from our island base close to Japan but our communications were so terrible because the Japanese were able to intercept them and then they decide for everything. Was Largely Marine operation in the Pacific called, there were army operations as well. The code talkers were Marines by the way, the Navajo, code talkers, but the marines said. We can't do this. They'd set up a rendezvous view and the Japanese will get to the rendezvous before they would I was really awful and there was a young man named Philip Johnston who grew up on the Navajo reservation when he was a child because Erin swore both missionaries there. And he heard of this issue, any wench marine sunny said you know Navajo is almost impossible language and it would be really great language to use in code because it's not written. You care by a book about Navajo. Hardly anyone can speak who didn't grow up on the reservation he grew up on there for quite years but never could speak well and the Marines listen joining and gave her a task. It's not written down at all. So it is completely just spoken language passed on from generation to generation. It was back. Then now never who was written with a very complex alphabet, a tremendously complex set of verbs I mean if you're speaking Navajo and the verb for pouring water out at the Pale is different from the verb furred pouring rocks out of the bag or pouring dirt. Some container. Air Thing is so specific everything is to everything else. It's extremely complex. Well. Then the movie they the way they the way I understood it when they were kind of explaining how this works not only was it the the Navajo language itself but that they swapped words like I think they use the word tortoise for a tank and the word. Many big guns for artillery. Did they also do that or was it pretty much just using the language? No they did not just use the language but they did. Kind of word substitution and the debt that because eventually, there are over four hundred code talkers and over seven hundred words in the language plus two now bat and they wanted people to be able to memorize and they especially able to memorize things that made sense because they knew that they'd be in the of babble having to transmit messages, and if the words were obscure in some way, it just would be much too difficult to memorize them be consistent and not make any. Mistakes and that was chester the man whose memoir i. Bro that was his biggest fear that he would make a mistake that would somehow.
Documentarian Cristina Costantini
"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.

Henry Segura found guilty of quadruple murder
"Let's begin with a case that really elite. I think the results of the case more controversial than any other trial since the relaunch of the network. Which is the case of Florida versus Henry? SA- Gurre era. 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

Ebola: medics brace for new cases as DRC outbreak spreads
"I. evolve spreading to the Democratic, Republic of Congo conflict zone and. This is a scenario that, health officials have been dreading so a week, after the World. Health Organization said we're clear of latest Ebola epidemic this new one popped up. Which is why I would just say guys don't jinx anything just do not say an epidemic is done or a. Little. Outbreak has done don't say that because something always pops up and I understand you want tourists and trade and industry to calm down. Relax. 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. Kivu province and a we, chat self is not under rebel control Salama, Peter Salama who. Is World Health organizations emergency response chief said the city is entirely surrounded by. 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. Controlled by insurgents or a group that could possibly do harm to you an aid workers you hesitate and a. Day two days three days maybe weeks or months go by and evola can spread like wildfire They say large numbers, of civilians have been killed by unrest, around Oita, aid workers priest government employers are currently being held hostage thereby insurgents So how do, we, get in there to start to contain the outbreak And, if the insurgents are already killing civilians and you say guys you know Avala killing some of the civilians. Are they really going to be that open to letting people come in See I I I love negotiate guys look I, don't, want you, guys get the Abullah so can you let us get in their door staff or get the people out But you're not really supposed to call. Them evil people patients that are being afflicted. With alleged Avila suspected of anyway so this outbreak is the tenth to hit the DRC since one thousand nine hundred seventy.
