"Welcome back we're here with attorney ben. Crump and megan has the question. Mr trump so much is riding on the outcome of this trial for george floyd family from minneapolis and for the country as a whole. You're in minneapolis. How is the community feeling. Are they prepared for the worst. If there's a hung jury or a not guilty verdict you never married. I'd think as have said before. I've been a civil rights lawyer by tap ofessional career and i've been black all my life as i understand completely that there's never a guarantee we can never take for granted that a police officer we'd be held accountable for killing a black person no matter how much objective evidence we have in america so we are cognitive of that But i see this case is really galvanizing. People multicultural multigeneration multi geographical to come together and say america. We are better than this. I think about the time out. The judge floyd i got invited by a trust bank their ceo. Kelly king said some profound in introducing may because they want to talk about social justice as a corporation and he said the reason i had been in crump. Come at talk to us about suggests with because it became personal alma older white man. Some ways today. I'm conservative I live in a gated community. And i have my neighbor who was similarly situated to me came and not my door and he said karen men. Did you see what's going on out there. He said people marching in the streets. People are protesting cities on fire. He said we got a call. Somebody somebody has to do something and he said this. He said look at his friend.

"Eat more veggies. It's an accidental business. One that was started out of love. And it's something that's really important to us now because it allows us to eat more nutritious and delicious meals together as a family and we're really excited to share with the view fifty percent off all of our four-pack state. Thanks for your support. Hey we're back. We were talking about whether having a vaccine poof vaccine or not. Having proof vaccine is a good idea sara. What's your thought on all of this. I think that anything that can get businesses reopen back on their feet is the what i vote for. So i think these passports and pass cards confirming your vaccine are are a good idea because when you think about the hit our economies taken now it's going to be years for us to even come back from this if you're in new york you walk past restaurants that will never come back. So if i know this offers employers a certain amount of comfort for not only their workers but their customers and they can increase capacity or at least reassure paying customers and consumers that they're coming to a safe place. I vote for that because this is not a normal time. Most people get one pandemic in their lifetime. This our shot and these cards could be temporary because if this vaccine becomes a flu shot. These passports may go way. We may not need them again. I just wonder where those people are. That were protesting government shutdowns and how businesses need to reopen. Now we shot a reopening them and helping them by doing this. And we're gonna fight about that too. I also think that governor santa's is choice. He actually put an executive order prohibiting businesses from requiring these cards so in anger at government overreach. He went ahead and overreached all the businesses in his state mandating. What he felt was right. And i also wanted to speak to what What you were saying about convincing the republican men. I look at the fact that this was four years. In the making of someone who ripped apart trust in everything from the media to the cdc to health officials to dr fao ci. Let's take them all down. So i don't think it's on anyone at this point to do the work to play catch up for something that should have just been facts science and information and in regard to privacy which often in certain issues do agree that it's a slippery slope. I cannot argue privacy on a public health issue like this. When i don't understand how the most private thing in my body. My uterus seems to be open for business when it's convenient politically so i will say that. These passports are a great idea. Okay joy you have some concerns having to do with what well no. I was just going to say a couple of things may be. A lot of people are scared of this vaccine. You now you hear people just generally around. And they're scared but what they should be really scared of the possible potential things that can happen to you. If you get cova down the line cause any kind of research. I've seen is more about that than about getting the vaccine. I mean these people who are not getting in. They're scared look around. There are millions of people getting their. Nobody's dying from the vaccine. They are dying from the disease. Okay i don't see how the democrats is supposed to convince the republicans to get a brain going. Okay okay. your hair looks amazing. By the way we'll be right back. Thanks dolly does george floyd family attorney ben. Crump think the murder trial of ex-cop derek. Chauvin could finally bring about the real systemic police reform america needs. He's live on the view next clearly. When mr floyd was no longer responsive and even motionless to continue to apply that level of force to a person prone doubt handcuffed behind their back. That that In no way she performs anything that is by policy is not part of our training and it is certainly not part of our ethics or a values that was the minneapolis chief of police breaking the blue wall of science silence with damning testimony this week in the trial of ex cop derek chauvin. He's charged as you know at the murder of george floyd and here to tell us if he thinks justice will finally be served. Please welcome lawyer for floyd's family and civil rights attorney. Ben crump komo morning ben crump back to view last week we heard a lot of emotional testimony from folks who witnessed george floyd steph. And now we're hearing from a lot of top cops that what chauvin did later. Police training and protocol how how powerful and unusual is for officers to take a stand like this against one of their own. Where good morning. Thank you for having me. It is both their powerful and very unusual to have a police chief and the top executives and a police department testify against one of their own offices especially in a excessive force wrong for death of a marginalized minority in america. And this gives us so much. Hope would be that. It shouldn't be riveted in when we see this. It should be expected. That police chiefs in police will tell the truth. Everybody saw what happened on that video when officer. Derek chauvin torchet josh laura to death literally by keeping his neon because nick as people in public begged him to take his knee off his neck. George mix and i can't read to date times and so prayed that we now have a precedent that police officers all of america will step out in front of the blue wall of silence to say. No we're going to stand for truth and justice even if that means holding our members of our police department accountable ben. I said yesterday that in all my years prosecuting cases. I've never seen evidence of this strong against a police officer. I think the prosecution has presented a really strong case. What do you think about the case. They've presented against chauvin so far the at think is very compelling in it. I wish we had given legal commentator sending hostile because i remembered on trayvon martin you gave a what i thought was dumb of the best. Legal commentary to engage. Educate america when we look at these type of cases. And when i think about what. Keith ellison Who's the attorney general for the state of minnesota in his team is doing they are building. The most compelling case to make sure derek chauvin is heo criminally liable for the canon of george floyd in his day rare america when a police officer is convicted for killing a marginalized minority on america. But when you think about the openness statement when they educated us all and said that it wasn't eight minutes and forty six seconds it was at nine minutes and twenty nine.

"Fast. Approaching the two hundred million mark and as we start to open back up. There's talk of requiring proof that you've had wanted to travel to go to public events go to private businesses and the white house won't issue a national mandate for so called vaccine passport republican governors like texas governor greg abbott and florida's rhonda santa's banned local officials from asking for proof and dissent us went a step further by saying private businesses. Can't either now. I don't know how comfortable many people would be getting on a plane with a whole bunch of folks with their kids and sitting next to people you don't know if they've been vaccinated or not. Well maybe i'm crazy is this asking is asking for proof of vaccination. We asked for it from people. From other countries you have to prove you were vaccinated in order to get into country. Is this crazy asking for proof of of a vaccination and my crazy sunny. No you're not. I think what's interesting is that you know. There are republicans that are saying that this is a radical idea and it's just not a radical idea. It's it's not novel. It's not new. I mean anyone that has children in school. Know that in order for your kids to go to school. You have to show proof of vaccine. I've traveled internationally. And i know all of you have traveled internationally. You have to show certain proof of vaccination. I recall that there is a yellow fever. Passport that you have to show and certain destinations because international travel already requires vaccination proof. I think what is what is odd. Is that this is against public support. You have sixty three percent of adult supporting making digital vaccination certification available while forty six percent would be in favor of requiring vaccinated people to carry them. So i think this is really about is that you have forty. Nine percent of the gop men saying that they won't get vaccinated and so rather than that group that population being inconvenienced. They want everyone to be inconvenienced. I think it's a matter of personal choice right. If you wanna get vaccinated fine you get vaccinated and then you get the benefits of being vaccinated and that that goes along with getting your vaccine passport. Want to be vaccinated and that again is your choice. That means that you don't get a vaccine passport and you don't necessarily get to travel internationally. You don't get to go into certain venues and then you also don't get to super spread the variant people that have been vaccinated. It's just a matter of public health. This is not a little. do right. Megan you say you're of two minds about this Do you think it's a good idea for people to at least let you now. If they haven't vaccine at least let you know that they have been vaccine. Made it if you're sitting in sitting next to them and they look a little green or something. I think that people obviously feel more comfortable. If you're sitting next to someone on a plane or working with someone in in close proximity who's been vaccinated. And i understand that concept. I my first big issue is that i really don't believe that the white house and democrats are doing a good job to get republicans on board with getting vaccinated. I have always worried about the political. The politics For for worse for this country being involved in the pandemic and and so much of this political and i think republicans being screamed at that. They're like dumb rednecks that are trying to be super spreaders. Of course they're not going to want to get the vaccine. And i don't make the rules. This is just the world we're living in and i. I hope that we will get to a place where we don't have to wear masks where we can live normally and freely again but there are processes that we're going to have to do to get their conservatives and republicans. Part of our dna is questioning. Big government is questioning being told what to do. Is questioning our privacy when you go back in history with things like the patriot act. There is no reason for any american to trust that our security our personal health would in any way be in good hands if there was some kind of database in states or federally. And i think that we should worry about things like china hacking into our systems which they've proven that they can do. And using that information for poor and possibly malfeasance see the other thing i wanna say is that this is going to run into a lot of legal issues no matter what because as employers there things employers can't ask you about your health. Legally you do have protected rights for your health privacy. So even if this doesn't end up being mandated in some states and not in others. I actually think we're going to end up with like a texas florida vs new york. California's situation where state will have it in. Some states won't and i'm just mixed on it because i really value privacy. I really value. I think anything having to do with big government is dangerous. And i don't wanna give any of my information any more so than they already have but i also want people to vaccinated and i honestly don't know what the answer is because most of the people that i know that our vaccine hesitant haven't been moved by any of the arguments coming out of the white house thus far. No and i gotta tell you. I don't know why would be up to democrats to convince republicans to do something that's good for them. I don't care if they get vaccinated. You know. I'm taking care of myself. But i do care if you're not vaccinated if you think it's okay to come sit next to me and chat at at the concert about what's happening. I think that's where more folks are joy joy. Where're you standing on all of this. Well you know what. I would like to get my behind to italy before. Stanley tucci eats all the food in.

Daniel Prude Case Reflects Difficulty of Prosecuting Police in New York
"I wanted to ask you. Ben crump about another case that you're involved with and that's the case of daniel prude. This horrific killing almost a year ago in rochester. Major protests This week because a grand jury refused to charge any of the officers involved. Daniel prude's daughter to share. A prude appeared on cnn. In september calling for the rochester officers involved in the killing to be fired and charged with murder. This is what she said. I will like to see them be fired and charged with murder there. There's video footage of these people suffocating. My father my father was murdered by these police officers. There's no reason why they should be on a paid suspension. They should be arrested in. They should be try as the killers that they are and so now. This grand jury has refused to indict despite the the calls for the charges to be brought by. New york's attorney general letitia james whose office lend the investigation She said Most recently daniel prude was in the throes of a mental health crisis in what he needed was compassion karen help from trained professionals tragically. He received none of those things. Can you talk about the refusal to indict this regrettable that many times because grand jury proceedings are secret. We don't know what evidence was all for it About a prosecutor to the jurors and making their determination we must remember brianna taylor's case And michael brown and ferguson missouri. Case one of the rare instances will we saw the inner workings of the grand jury. We saw that the prosecutors put forth of very weak case and when you put four four week case to get a prosecution then you won't get the grand jury to decide amy. It has been said that a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich because ninety nine point nine nine nine percent of the time when a prosecutor wants. An indictment are prosecuted. Gets an indictment oftentimes prosecutors. Because they have this symbiotic. Relationship with law enforcement will give greater consideration to police officers than the unknown african american or hispanic citizens that they have no relationship with when they go into a grand jury. Proceeding we saw so many times with throughout the country is historical where they were trying to establish off their as by saying well we presented a grand jury and the grand jury found no probable cause. Will we don't buy that. We know that's part of the intellectual justification of discrimination. That leads to the legalized genocide of black people in america. And that's why we have to have. Systemic reform changed intact coach criminal justice in america as we said at the michael brown graduated decision was announced. The whole system needs to be indicted other than that they will continue to kill. Black people with impunity

"We are back with men crop sunny. Yes. There were protests in many cities last night most of them peaceful in Louisville almost one hundred people were arrested. Police shot one. Protester with a projectile and two officers were shot thankfully non-life-threatening injuries someone has been arrested in that case charged fourteen. I believe council wanted endangerment and two counts of assault on a police officer Ben. What is your message to the people out there that are devastated. And Sat and and upset the justice they feel wasn't served in Brianna his case. Will certainly we understand their righteous anger because we feel it too. But as his family has axed, has her mother to Meka has axe please demonstrate peaceful protests. She said that Brianna would not condone violence as so we want to honor his legacy we wanna respect Brianna especially now when she wasn't respected in this grand jury proceeding, let's show Brianna ultimate respect by having peaceful protests and her name. Absolutely. Amen Sir. So Donald Trump. He prays this Kentucky Attorney General Attorney General Cameron a yesterday and called him quote unquote brilliant. Well we're not surprised at that since Cameron spoke at the RN say. A little bit of a conflict of interest there. As I said, before you need an objective attorney general, an objective district attorney not somebody who's in this case seems to be in the pocket of the Republicans trump didn't even mentioned Brianna his name. What could you give me your reaction to that and what we ever have a country as long as this man in the White House. Where obviously we look to our leadership to have empathy for the loss of life and obviously Brianna Bank killed in her apartment we and we had our previous President Obama. He clearly would have offered condolences on behalf of a family, but that's not where we normally get from this administration and so hopefully, I'll those people marching in the streets for Briana will make sure they go to the polls and vote and when you think about him praising Kentucky General Daniel Cameron, you have to say, well, there, Dan, you're cameron do. Everything possible to ensure that justice was done completely justice for Briana as well. Remember this whole probable cause affidavit jaw was based on a lie they claim that the United States, post? Say a Briana was having packages delivered to her home but the United States, post-dispatch say he did not make that statement. So did Daniel Cameras present that to the grand jury to Daniel Cameron present? The one witness that he keeps parade in, say the police not announce but there was twelve witnesses that our legal team twelve neighbors that said, they did not hear the police knock and announce in fact that particular neighborhood achey parading to try to justify unjustified killing BRIANNA own two previous statements he said he did not. They. Did Not hear the police knock and announce, but it was now this third time they said that and if Dan your camera presented that to the grand jury in didn't present the other twelve neighbor's house that fair to Brianna. Let me ask you this because the FBI says that they are also investigating this case to see re honest civil rights will violate it. What can you tell us about this and could charge still be filed? Yes, they can whippy I know attorney Baker, my co counsel she has been keeping a very detailed accounts of. The FBI has been doing and we know they're looking into how this are not want was executed and all the policies and procedures that were violated like sending the ambulance away. Win they execute. which valid of their policies and procedure and at the Briana was shot, she was land without any medical attention for at least twenty minutes if not more. So they're looking into that and they're looking at all these offices, light the lieutenant who put this statement on this probable cause affidavit. So we're prayer that the FBI would give Brianna the justice that has they looted her in a state of Kentucky and remember. Dan You cameras say all celebrities and Athletes that they should stay out of Kentucky and that sounds awfully familiar like they used to do with Martin Luther King and John Lewis Alabama when they say you outside agitators, you just mind Your Business.

Kill our children slowly, and this has been done at. At the highest levels of government, so when we think about what happened to George flow it just put it in perspective. How this slow death I mean! George was big and saying I can't breathe sixteen times weapon he said for not women not to men, not three minutes four minutes, not five minutes, not six minutes, not seven minutes, not eight minutes, but almost nine minutes. He is begging for breath. Breath, as so, we have to take a breath off for peace. We have to take a breath for equal justice. We have to take a breath the hill country, but most importantly we have to take a breath for judge because the knee, not just officer Derek Chauvet, but the entire police department, the knee up the American system of government that has been historically.

Black people these. Season killings of black people. Dan. That's when the floor family will acknowledge their presence at the White House where they want to. Make sure everybody understands. This is not a photo op for them. This is their life. George was killed other black people being killed in. They're taking it very seriously, and they won't serious reform, not just a fleeting moment for a vote dowse why the floor family made a decision to say. Let's see what happens with the legislation presented by the congressional. Black Caucus. Ben We've known each other for a really long time, and we've seen the murders of black men and women happen time and time again, and you've dedicated your career to show social justice. It just seems to me like little seems to change. However, it's true that in the past two weeks, confederate statues across the country have been toppled. There are calls to rename military bases named after confederate soldiers. NASCAR has even banned the confederate flag during its races and serious police form is at least being discussed and considered. Do you think at this time? Real Change can happen? Will it last? Sunday With trae by on, we had an opportunity, and it was a worldwide phenomenon, and now we look at George Floyd and I mean people are marching in Berlin their margin Paris their margin in Australia their marching for twenty one days straight now they have been margin in cities across America, and this is the best opportunity that I have seen says I've been an attorney that we may achieve real change when you think about it cited the fact that you have activity taking place on both sides of the aisle when we. We were doing those congressional hearings. We have people like Jim Jordan. Matt Gaetz, like a represent Johnson from Arkansas Grin that transparency was a big issue that was saying that we needed to have accountability. That's the only way we could get to trust and some we'd find something that both sides of the Alkan agree I'll than we need to seize the opportunity and not lose this moment and anybody who watches that show who has also of humanity.

Welcome back, so you knew who you know. Who is restarted his campaign rallies This weekend just blocks away from the. Of. One of the worst racists mass occurs in history in Tulsa. Oklahoma, the city is also seeing a rise in cove, nine hundred nine cases, but he and pants don't seem too worried about it. Watch have a twenty two thousand seat arena, but I think we're going to also take the convention hall next door, and that's going to hold forty thousand so twenty, two thousand plus forty thousand, which would have over nine hundred thousand people that won't be able to go and I can tell you. Covert or corona, virus, or whatever you WANNA call it. Plenty of names. Tremendous progress is being made has really been in the forefront. Of. Of our efforts to slow the spread and. and in a very real sense. They flattened the curve. So you take issue with the message, they're putting out Sonny. I really. Do you know I've said before that? This spreading of misinformation leads to the loss of life and the vice president is supposed to be the head of the Corona Virus Task Force not only is he giving misinformation in saying that Oklahoma has somehow flatten the curb? He also apparently encouraged governors to share with their citizens. that. The increase the spikes that we're seeing is because we're seeing an increase in testing, and that is just not true. Since so many states were encouraged by this administration to open their economies and open up states. We've seen a significant spike and corona virus cases including death, and when you look at the numbers. In Oklahoma, Oklahoma reported two hundred and twenty five new cases of Kobe one, thousand, nine, hundred this. This past Saturday which is its highest one day total since the pandemic began. So how dare the vice president? Tell the people of the United States and especially the people of Oklahoma that there's been a curve, so you're inviting sixty thousand people to a rally where they very, we're mass are optional where they very well may be infected with a life ending virus I just think it's it's you know it's. He's a menace to its hooves Kristen's. SCULPTORS FISA couple. Right, and he's requiring attendees to sign a waiver, so they can't sue them if they get the corona virus now. I know this is really dumb. Question and I'm just. It's like no reason we ask you this, but I'm going to do it anyway. Would you sign this waiver joy? Not only would I not sign the waiver. I wouldn't go in the first place because I have what you call common sense. Common Sense you know. it's interesting. Isn't it that that to sign this waiver so the he's not sued. If anybody get sick suddenly, he believes in science. He didn't believe in science well now that it comes to his pocket book, He believes in science all of a sudden, his adult to trump support. He doesn't care about you. He doesn't care about your health or your children's health. He only cares that you come and supply. Kudos to his massive ego, he won't even give you health insurance if you get sick, why are you going why? Megan. You think there's plenty of. To go around right because we've got the demonstrators and. You have. I I would. Hear aside really quickly. Do you think Chris Cuomo cared about People's health? When he moved old people around to nursing homes that were cove, positive, and a lot of people died including my friend Janice Dan's mother-in-law and father-in-law. There's a lot of hypocrisy to go around here and this is one of the issues that I'm really enraged about I. Don't think anyone should be in giant rallies right now because we've been told by medical experts, it's not safe, but the message. Message from the media is as long as you are protesting something or going to a rally. That is the right politics you can do it and we're GONNA. Ignore the spread of Covid so going to a trump rally is somehow much more dangerous than going to a rally in Brooklyn over the weekend. I'm removing politics from this because I haven't protested anything and I'm not planning on protest in person, and I'm not planning on going to the trump rally obviously but. But we have to be consistent on this and what we're seeing a lot of anger festering up when you're seeing people who are now taking into their own hands, and going and opening up playgrounds in Brooklyn, because de Blasio won't let them, but at the same time, hundreds of thousands of people can protest in Brooklyn. The messaging is very confusing for people, and we can laugh all we want on here, but I am. This is the most angry. I've seen lot. Lot of people I know in the center and on the right, because the messaging is very confusing, is coveted pandemic that we all have to stay sheltering in place and inside, or is it not or is it only a pandemic? If you are a conservative and you're a trump supporter, and then you have to stay inside, and you're a hypocrite. If you sign this waiver and you go into his rally, you're not hypocritic. You go protests someplace else. It's very confusing. I. Why and how this? House my course of this off. Because it has nothing to do with whether you should people, no one should be doing any of it. This is the point no one should be protesting outside. No one should be doing any of it and everyone has the right to make a decision, but it just feels to me as we have said to protesters outside. WHO's saying this probably isn't the. The greatest idea because you're going to spread it, so what's happening is it is spreading, and it isn't just an isn't trump folks, and it's folks who are out doing things that we probably should not be doing this is this is less each thing that we talk about is the politics of the thing we're talking about so if we're talking about folks who are protesting, we're talking. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Go ahead joined. Hear anything. Go ahead. Joy I was just GonNa say I. The what aboutism is irrelevant to me right now I'm already in the in the Cuomo. Administration asked anybody to sign a waiver so that they can't be sued. It's a whole different ballgame talking..

They voted for integrated marriage in one, thousand, nine, hundred ninety seven right. Again decided the Supreme Court, which is way he sits, so he should know better the other two loss cases. But yes, I am has on house. Right so sunny. How much do you think it moves the dial for the LGBT community? Well Listen I. This is his Doric. There's just no question about that. I think this is as historic as. The two thousand fifteen same sex marriage ruling by the Supreme Court, but there's still a way to go in the struggle for rights for the Lgbtq community, because this decision only applies to job discrimination and it only it does not apply to jobs where there are fifteen or fewer employees, small businesses, and we know that one in six Americans are employed by small businesses. So you know there is no protection for that community in those businesses, the other thing is, it doesn't extend the right to. The work. A public accommodations it doesn't extend the right to healthcare doesn't extend the right to housing so that. Should be a concern to every American. Because these rights, this equality should be across the board. It is time for our LGBTQ community to enjoy the same civil rights that all of us enjoy and so while I am. Happy and I'm. Ecstatic that we have come this far, it's just not far enough I know that House bill passed the Equality Act that would extend these protections to things like medical care and housing and public accommodations, but it has sat in the Senate since two thousand Nineteen, and that is Mitch McConnell's doing, and so people should be up in arms because that bill needs to be passed. Right so now, some folks are saying it's a blow to you. Know whose reelection chances, but you don't think that this will have a big impact on his space. They're saying Megan. Is that how you what you think? I never right trump out i. just don't I learned my lesson in two thousand sixteen, I think one of the interesting points brought up. is about the fact that the Supreme Court has now legislating? A lot of issues that really should be done in our Congress and our Senate and. The Supreme Court is now. Being used to legislate and not just interpret the Constitution I. Think it would certainly an interesting time in history I think we should applaud. This civil rights moment and I couldn't have said it better than what joy and sunny said. All right well. I think it's kind of a great thing, but it's like many civil rights. We seem to piecemeal everything because realistically if you weren't gay or so, and so wasn't black or so, and so wasn't Hispanic your rights as an American would be very clear cod, but for some reason now we all have to get in shaving, so maybe we will figure out what what to do. Do because race relations right now in America, I think are at a crossroads and tonight an encore presentation of the documentary. Fall Los Angeles nineteen eighty to nineteen ninety two reminds us. It's a road. We have been on many many times. As a nation, it chronicles how a decade of racial tension exploded into uprisings in La and this was after the Rodney King verdict and it features A. Lot of people talking and you know John. Legend has doing an introduction. It's quite stunning. Let it fall Los. Angeles one thousand, nine, hundred to hundred ninety two airs tonight at eight PM Eastern on ABC, and we will be right back. Still ahead star-crossed celebs are using their massive social media platforms to support the battle against racism..

"To get to fill the the casual racism of the left never ends they're testifying up on Capitol Hill about police research it's just a show I mean come on Ben Crump Ben Crump is the lawyer for the Floyd family he's up there testifying he was also the lawyer for Trayvon Martin's family there's also the lawyer for Michael brown's family he has kind of a string of high profile cases where there ended up getting no convictions I hope that's not the case here but isn't it isn't like one lawyer that handles these cases events you know the the memorial service al Sharpton was there never met George Floyd but al Sharpton was at least two of the more as it might have attended all three and why there are no other pastor anywhere anybody who actually knew George Floyd this is when you lose me you bring in al Sharpton when you bring in the usual cast of characters that tells me that there's something else at play and I know how the sharp didn't machine works I've seen it first hand from people who have paid Sharpton for protest letters warning companies the companies hire these firms and they all work together against each other and if you want to get sharp in the going rate for a letter was I believe it was fifty thousand dollars then if you wanted him to show up in protest it was yeah it was twice that it was a mess it's it's a game he's getting rich off of this well the Floyd family eventually see money yeah they will and Ben crumple get a nice chunk of that whether or not there's a conviction there wasn't a conviction in the Trayvon Martin case if you sued George Zimmerman he doesn't have anything so you're not gonna win any money there but you know publicidad get from that is immeasurable al Sharpton is all on TV and people who and national action network let's look that up and all I must contribute to the cause I'm so woke and there you go that's how he gets his pay do you really honestly believe that al Sharpton is losing sleep over this al Sharpton's started a riot that killed people he not lost sleep over that he sure as heck not gonna lose sleep over money let's go back to the phones aren't in Pasadena you've been very patient thank you for waiting or not let's try Linda in Towson are you there Linda Linda no I want to play a cut from hello Hey art sorry and okay well reshaped you're waiting it's a good idea and I got I got a problem here with these guys be funding the police you're not alone a lot of people your question I don't know I'm just a dumb farmer from South Jersey you know come from the farming district in South Jersey been here forty years our family been here three hundred but when they take the blues away their jobs are only becomes one overall at that point in time and as the constitution no you don't understand or they will send in social workers to Palestinians in the situation of making my community safe informing the police department years ago and and and the president is that they were going to look after the interests of the public now if they'd be fun if they take the police to raid if they started another program where they can't guarantee security in my home to my family they have eliminated forty years of gun advocate didn't go on gun control it is absolutely nothing at that point in time and we'll never win in court yeah well that's that's how the left works they disarm you and then they tell you that they're going to provide for you they take your job they ruin your job and then they tell you they're going to provide for you they want the government to be the parents to right everybody will resort right back to the exude to the original constitution protect your family protect you your property and protect yourself and when everybody's carrying a handgun I guarantee you want to talk about you want to talk about a problem as soon as they walk in somebody's brother at that point in time you don't call the police and the longer you shoot him right as you should there is some reason vacating your home if somebody's breaking into your home you have every right to do that I appreciate the call art it's a call for more in our key because more problems and more situations like that then will call for more government actions to the government the left has this amazing ability to make an S. insane argument and have some people believe it you know big government has failed us therefore we need bigger government the key issue there's a disconnect there what the real solution to the failure of big government is bigger government and most people look at an angle that doesn't really make any sense here us lifelong smoker and you've got lung cancer so the cure the treatment I recommend for you is is that you smoke more doesn't make any sense but they don't need to make sense we need to make an emotional appeal and that's a government will protect you yeah everybody in times of of of trauma they look for help they look for protection they want security and Democrats are they're offering it never minding the fact that they sort of helped create the problem in the first place against Democrat run city Democrat run state Democrat Attorney General Democrats everywhere around there there isn't a Republican in the time zone but well boy Howdy it's those Republicans fault and will protect you from Republicans do you see that a lot of times in the city we're going to keep doing the same thing well Hey is anybody really look at the the last twenty thirty forty years of Baltimore and go well what we really need is more of this now come in said we're gonna give you a new direction a new progressive direction we're gonna we're gonna move level of the whole field of candidates who just ran for mayor we're all pretty much offering the same thing which is what we've been offered and what we've had for a couple of generations now but when you know that there is no alternative why why bother even trying what we need is more of the same what will really get us out of this hole we dug ourselves into is a bigger shovel well that doesn't make any sense but there's no possibility on the face of the earth that anybody other than a Democrat is going to win this way here and then it was Brandon Scott has won the democratic primary that pretty much means he's gonna be the mayor we've just got to go through the formalities of a campaign why is there going to be a campaign why is he going to raise money why is he going to run ads and all of this and and have massive fundraisers because you can because you can we just had a mare kinda get into trouble for that she didn't really need to campaign all that hard but she wanted to sell some healthy holy books and that was the perfect cover if you'd know Brandon Scott isn't gonna write you know healthy Holly part two what he'll do is he'll have fundraisers and committees to do this that and the other thing and even though it's a foregone conclusion that he's going to be the next mayor at this point he can still raise all this money and maybe has aspirations beyond the city of Baltimore or just wants to be a power broker inside the city of Baltimore inside the state of Maryland that takes money so you milk the machine and you well aid fundraise this and fundraise that and he can sort of spend that money to raise his own power and visibility within the state it is with great insight and there's the same reason someone like Maxine waters someone like a Jerry Nadler New didn't pick any Republican you want to where they're going to win with eighty percent of the vote they still raise money why because they care let's grab the cake in private what do you what's the point of being a member of Congress Maxine waters will get seventy percent of the.
