I mean you're drawing people into the space you're highlighting it to read this. You're putting pressure on the politicians. So i think we're a unique time him politically as said recalled this unity. Which would i think it comes inside. Kills the unity on climate change are the time. Kerpen hagen cop in two thousand nine. I think those of unity in terms of political Domestic political saying two thousand eight the uk pasta climate. Change act with quite a lot. The rodney four or five employees who voted against it. And then you went down. That was a trough Twenty thousand fourteen. That time when david cameron was talking about getting rid of old green crap and was a lot of skepticism on the benches so i think guys cycles at the moment where point with us alot of unity behind congregate should in mind. Stay that way so this might be a bandwagon. But i appoint when it makes sense. Venise newspapers broke As journalists we can do is unite tighter opportunity and get stuff in the paper in the best way we can because i remember a time when it was very difficult to get environment stories on the front pages. That's not now so we just need to use it really struck while the irons and I like this idea that collective unified action could be exactly what the industry needs right now. That's what you're saying. yeah. I speak to of environmentalists in the green groups who are very skeptical about kind of the way the top in patil then have a lot of time for that point of view to be honest. I mean people say oh you just go the expressing agenda us agenda you get people involved with spectrum about today kind of just about the value of of what we read over the last twelve fifteen months. Covert has been that top. Pick where audiences have really valued at and reciprocated by really investing. In that in that topic once coronavirus virus you know potentially fizzles out relevancy. Do you think climate change could be the next big topic to really engage with audiences. I think it could. I think it's going to be very important. They see as say is really the way we phrase the phrase repulsing. I don't think off the such grim yet. i think people are sick of negative stories. United people don't wanna read our crisis. I mean that's an important part of the story. It's really got to be presented as as as the solutions to climate change while the van unite will screwed the wairoa scrooge stories quite difficult. Want to write because it's people to climate crisis very slow motion crisis said writing about it dramatically which you have to do these stories quite difficult and i just don't think people want to read it.

During the trump era it allows the government to immediately expel migrants at the border because of the coronavirus pandemic cb bp is not said how many people have been expelled from the us since the flights began last week but the news has learned that at least fifty were expelled to horace on thursday alone in crime news.

His trial was unfair because prosecutors withheld evidence and witnesses lied but spencer's not quite free. The highest criminal court in texas must agree with the judge and dallas.

"I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Elsa Chang Benjamin Spencer has spent the last 34 years in a Texas prison for a crime He says he did not commit. Violent robbery that led to the death of a white man on the streets of Dallas. Spencer isn't the only one saying this, the foreman of the jury that convicted him a trial judge, independent investigators and attorneys and three of the four witnesses who testified against him. All of them have now said that Spencer had nothing to do with the crime. And yet all of his appeals failed. But now Benjamin Spencer he's lucky after nearly 3.5 decades, a new development means he is expected to walk out of prison in the next few weeks. Barbara Bradley. Haggerty has reported extensively on this case for NPR and the Atlantic and she joins us now. Welcome, Barbara. It's great to be here, Elsa. So before we get to this latest development, I just want to start with this stunning quote from the man who prosecuted the case 33 years ago, Andy Beach, he said to you recently quote I'm reading the transcript and I walk away going. How in the hell did I get a conviction? But her? Can you just real briefly talk about how little evidence there was in the first place to convict Benjamin Spencer. Yes, it was pretty incredible. So there was no physical evidence connecting Ben Spencer to the crime. The fingerprints didn't match his that were found in the crime scene in the car. They never found a murder weapon. Spencer had an alibi. It really all came down to essentially The eyewitness testimony of a woman named Gladys Oliver and Gladys Oliver said she didn't see the murder she couldn't have because no one was there. But she did see Ben Spencer and another man running away from the victim's car. And it was really her testimony that convicted been Spencer. And why was Gladys Oliver as a witness given so much weight? Andy Beach? The prosecutor told me that Gladys, however, was one of the best witnesses he had ever had. She was in a wheelchair, so she was eye level with the jury. The jury foreman told me that it was her testimony that really, really convicted Benjamin Spencer, So she later turned out that she had accepted money. And lied about it. But for that trial, she was a rock solid rock star witness. It was something else going on to remember. This was Dallas in 1988. Under the D A's office back then that we try to get 1000 years sentences for black men. The feeling was that if that this black man didn't do this crime, then he probably did another, so we might as well put him away. If you were black man in Dallas in the 19 eighties, you really really did not want to be arrested for anything because your chances of getting off we're very slim, So that was really the culture. In which this trial took place. Right? And what was remarkable invention in Spencer's case was that you know the very absence of forensic evidence like no fingerprints. No didna, as you say. That was the ultimate thing that doomed him, wasn't it? Yes, it was. And the problem for Benjamin Spencer now is that any possible evidence that could be retested say, with new didna scientific testing methods. All of that has been thrown out or lost. And so the very fact that he was not connected to the crime by any physical evidence means that he also can't exonerate himself because how do you prove a negative? Spencer's tides are turning on Lee now and you attribute that To what you call political serendipity. Tell us what you mean. Yes. So an article or are an NPR story doesn't have in a legal weight, obviously, but in 2018 A new black Progressive D. A was elected. His name is John Crusoe. And he had heard about the Ben Spencer case, partly because I called him up about it, and he reopened it. He gave it to the head of the conviction Integrity unit and they investigate kind of questionable convictions. And this woman, Cynthia Garza tackled this case as if her it was her own brother in prison. She found documents and people who said that Gladys got between five and $10,000 that she lied about it. At trial. She got confirmatory evidence that the other eye witnesses and the jailhouse informant were lying. She even found a Brady violation right? She found that the prosecutor at the time knew that Gladys was expecting to get up to $25,000. And he should have told that to the defense because the defense could have undercut her testimony. Remember she was a star witness, so they should have turned over that information. Right, A Brady violation being when the prosecution conceals exculpatory information from the defense. Now. Ultimately you write that Benjamin Spencer was quote the luckiest of the unlucky How so? You know, we've come to believe. Exonerations come early, easily. All you have to do is test the DNA's A that was recently found and the person walks out of prison. But Most cases don't have Edna in them. Look at what happened with Ben Spencer. He had almost no chance of getting out of prison. But he had this kind of cast of Of thousands that wanted to help him. You have to pro bono lawyers. You have a judge who ruled him. Innocents. You have Matt national Media attention, And still, l said there was no relief. Right? When does all of that ever happen all at once Right now? And then, But the reason he gets out the reason he's so lucky is because there was a D A. Who is willing to reopen the case. And even with all that it took 34 years. The big insight for me with this case is that it is.

And then, But the reason he gets out the reason he's so lucky is because there was a D A. Who is willing to reopen the case. And even with all that it took 34 years. The big insight for me. With this case is that it is so easy to convict an innocent person, and it is nearly impossible to get that person out of prison to undo the mistake. And even after all that, even after the confluence of all those different factors, which is so rare After Spencer's released he won't be exonerated. Ultimately, right, right, That's that's what's kind of incredible to exoneration is a really, really high standard to be exonerated. You have to show that there was a piece of newly discovered evidence. That would convince a jury you know by clear and convincing evidence that he couldn't have committed that crime that that usually is DNA's A. That's a really, really high standard. In fact, the Texas Courts call it a Herculean burden. So if he gets a new trial, which he won't I mean they basically what's gonna happen is they can't have a new trial. After 34 years, witnesses have died. Evidence has gone away, so they dismissed the charges, but it's still his name won't be cleared. He won't get compensated for spending 34 years of his life from ages. 22. 56 in prison after he got convicted in an unfair trial. I want to say, though, that this is not over. The conviction Integrity unit is going to continue investigating his case. It is possible that he will be exonerated is just going to take a lot more work. Barbara Bradley. Haggerty is currently writing a book about Benjamin Spencer's case and has written about it already for NPR and the Atlantic. Thank you so much, Barbara. Thanks for having.

She found that the prosecutor at the time knew that Gladys was expecting to get up to $25,000. And he should have told that to the defense because the defense could have undercut her testimony. Remember she was a star witness, so they should have turned over that information. Right, A Brady violation being when the prosecution conceals exculpatory information from the defense. Now. Ultimately you write that Benjamin Spencer was quote the luckiest of the unlucky How so? You know, we've come to believe. Exonerations come early, easily. All you have to do is test the DNA's A that was recently found and the person walks out of prison. But Most cases don't have Edna in them. Look at what happened with Ben Spencer. He had almost no chance of getting out of prison. But he had this kind of cast of Of thousands that wanted to help him. You have to pro bono lawyers. You have a judge who ruled him. Innocents. You have Matt national Media attention, And still, l said there was no relief. Right? When does all of that ever happen all at once, Right? And then, But the reason he gets out the reason he's so lucky is because there was a D A. Who is willing to reopen the case. And even with all that it took 34 years. The big insight for me. With this case is that it is so easy to convict an innocent person, and it is nearly impossible to get that person out of prison to undo.

"Hello America and welcome to the Internet. I'm Robert Evans. And this is a podcast. It's called behind the bastards and it's about bad people that's the introduction that I have for you today and I hope you all enjoyed it. My Guess Today Spencer Spencer. How're you doing today? Omb Great should I match that energy because I don't think that's possible? No no but you nailed it. That was that was the energy. I brought you in to provide perfect Spencer. You are I mean among other things. You're kind of the reason That that that being a big part of the reason that dnv went from something that I shamefully hid from bullies when I was in high school To something that is I don't know I'll call it cool. I'm going to say it's cool now. Play Dungeons and dragons. And it's it's all on you buddy so thank you for that. This is my opportunity to say that. Oh Yeah thank you for saying that. I mean I keep telling people that but no one believes me. So that's validation I need you and I have cast it a couple of pods together in the in the past have we not. Yeah you went on. Harman town did was at one price right twice. Yeah twice and It was fun. I mean I don't know a lot of times. We have people on that. Don't know much like it's not like they're not experts in their field or whatever but they're just not on to talk about stuff that they have a real perspective on or information inner things that aren't pulled out of their ass so it was really refreshing for that reason. Yeah I mean I put a lot of stuff out of my ass but rarely on camera stage. So how has your House Your Quarantine Ben? Spencer how are you? How are you holding up in the In the plague So it's it's it's kind of funny because I'm getting a bit too much of my roommate. We're kind of getting in each other's way and I was like man it would be nice to be living alone and then the other day we were doing errands together. And she's like man. It's so great though. We're not living alone and I was like. Oh okay that's that's your your version of this then But I'm getting a little stir crazy. I would like more space in the past. I would just go for car. Rides to kind of get myself some space. And I can't really do that. I mean technically maybe. It just seems like a risk. I don't know I don't think it's really a. I don't know how California's handling law wise. I think it's a a driving alone in your car's a pretty safe thing I would say yeah. Yeah I'm you know it's one of those things I think everybody. I think everybody who's quarantined with roommates or antic partners is like Oh my God. I wish I was alone right now. This would be so much easier if I was alone and I think everyone who's quarantined alone is like Oh my God. I wish I had a roommate or I wish my boyfriend girlfriend was here. It's terrible being alone. I think the answer is that it just sucks to be quarantined. Yeah that's that's the lesson I'm taking out of. This is that it's great to be locked in in your house will matter who it's with. I feel like I love being locked in house so it would just be interesting. I wish I had like a good control group to really make this experiment. Pop now let me ask you. The the president has recently stated that people should liberate a a series of of Midwestern states. Have you have you jumped onto the call to start the Bugaku are you? Are you grabbing your go bag and your ar fifteen to to to liberate the Spiro in your neighborhood? Yeah I'm going to have open back up at force. It all sounds like you know like who can who could stand opposed to that. That is a great question and it actually ties in a little bit To our episode today because obviously in America is thinking about a civil war like like a new one right right and there's a lot of thoughts back to the the old civil war at some of those protests in Michigan and whatnot. People are waving confederate flags which. I don't really make a lot of sense in Michigan but remember the confederate state of Michigan. Yes the Great Jefferson Davis famed detroiter. Yeah so we're all thinking about civil wars and when people in America think about civil wars we have to think about you. Know the big civil war which is civil wars go worldwide in in the top three or seven something somewhere around there definitely a great civil war or they're thinking about the possibility of a new civil war and people often call that the second American civil war. But what if Spencer would if I were to tell you that this country actually already had a second civil war one with machine guns and aerial bombardment entrenches and blood and guts? What if I were to tell you that already happened? Well I would have to laugh you out of the room. Will that would be hard because we are quarantined in separate states so I would have to laugh earlier death. Yeah laugh me off of the Internet will don't start laughing yet spitzer because it turns out there was a second American civil war and it happened in West Virginia now most. Us history textbooks have a painful allergy to talking about it because it all hinges on the Labor movement and for whatever reason the people who write our textbooks don't like to talk about the reason that weakens exist but today in this two part episode. We're going to talk about the battle of Blair Mountain. Have you ever heard of the Battle of Blair Mountain? No literally no. I'm not a big history also Yvonne. That sounds wild. Yeah it's a fucking cool story It's like it's like it's a cyberpunk story in a steam punk setting. That's that's how I would if I was if I was trying to like trying to sell the net Flix TV show version of this. That's how I would package it in a fucking elevator pitch. That's awesome It's pretty cool. I mean a lot of people die horribly and a lot of over get rate. But it's like just. I don't know what point I was making. It's interesting that is a cyberpunk. Yeah so it. All starts with Kohl's Spencer. In the late eighteen hundreds Cole became increasingly critical to the economic productivity and the infrastructure of the United States and the richest veins of coal. Were underground so this necessitated large groups of men writing down to those veins through vast holes in the earth and hacking out big chunks of coal the structural supports that kept them alive and kept the the world from collapsing on them. Were often also made of coal It was extraordinarily dangerous. There was trapped gas sulfur gas and shit everywhere or methane gas everywhere and like explosions happened all the time. Mine collapses were very common It it's one of the most dangerous jobs people ever had to the extent that like it looks like more. Americans died from coal collapses over the decades than died fighting in Vietnam. I wanted a lot of minecraft in that does not track with my experience. Minecraft has benefited a lot from The decades of mine safety reforms. So thank you. Thank you minecraft. Thank you notch famed q? And honor and fascist for yeah so for an example of some so fucking terrible Cole disasters because I know everybody comes to the show for that sort of thing. There was the ECCLES mine disaster in West Virginia in April of nineteen fourteen. This was a methane explosion occurred. While two hundred and forty six miners were underground and one hundred and eighty of them. Died instantly In one thousand nine there was a mine explosion in Cherry Illinois which destroyed the entire town and killed two hundred fifty nine men and boys because an awful lot of boys worked in mind there. Little hands could reach the coal better. So that's cool. That's terrifying yeah. It sucks between eighteen ninety and nineteen seventeen. At least twenty. Six thousand American miners were killed on the job but mostly in explosion. Twelve thousand miners were maimed. Every year often permanently disabled so not a great job. I would say yeah less I think. Less people are maimed podcasting every year sophie As are less than twelve thousand people maimed while podcasting. Every year cannot confirm or deny. I'm trying to get those numbers up with machetes but we still I own. I mean I may be may people in the air. You know if I'm really I'm really getting the let's see. It sucks to be a coal miner. It was not a great job right. Men took the GIG because they needed money and mining often paid well or at least the pay that the bosses advertised was generally good capitalism. Being what it was the people who own the minds head of variety of fun tactics that they use to fuck over the human beings who made their business profitable. One of these tactics was called cribbing. See Minors repaid based on the tonnage of coal that they might every car that left the minds was supposed to hold a specific payload of one ton or two thousand pounds however the mine operator got to actually purchase and set up the cars and they would regularly rig them to hold more coal than they were supposed to hold the wooden contraptions that they added to the sides of the cart to enable this were called cribs and hence the name cribbing? It was not uncommon for minors to be paid for digging out two thousand pounds when they had actually dug out twenty five hundred pounds. So that's stealing five hundred pounds a cold from a minor. That's a lot of bullshit so like they put like a wooden basket around it. So the add more coal and then they essentially said that was one load of coal when it was more like Yup two or one and a half. Yeah it was more like one and a quarter but like yeah. Yeah they would they would get extra co for free basically. Yeah so that's cool mine. Operators would also yeah. It's not great. It's not great. Plain operators would also often dock the pay of their minors. They found slate and rock mixed in with the Colle The man who did the weighing was the judge of this and since he was paid directly by the mine owner. It was not uncommon for him to just check the miners in lie. About how much non. Coal wound up in the coal. So that's cool too. Yeah and then. Of course. Your skin is crawling. Yeah that's horrible. It's just oh man. It gets so much worse. I just as a spoiler we're about to talk about something called bureaucratized rape so strap in man but first. Let's talk about company stores. Have you ever heard that song that goes you work sixteen tons and what are you get another day older and deeper in debt Saint Peter? Don't you call me goes? I can't go Maso to the company store that Song. Yeah definitely yeah. Well it's a song of that coal mining back in these days and the company store is a thing that like a lot of mining towns our minds would have and they didn't start out as necessarily exploitative minds in the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds where out in the middle of nowhere. And there'd be like no town near the mine and the miners would have to live nearby because it was just the only way for the work to happen so the company would have to set up a store where they could buy food in the city's so like not inherently expletive. But having the only place where minors can shop be owned by their employer also is super prone to exploitation right like you can see how an asshole who would do something like cribbing could also take advantage that bullshit so there's been a lot of research company stores and a surprising amount of them actually don't seem to have been abusive and prices were in line with prices at independent businesses but a lot of them were horrifically abusive and would like Jack up prices to way above what they would cost and some companies would actually make it would ban or fire minors from going into other towns to shop at stores that weren't owned by the company. Yeah and West. Virginia was a place where this was particularly common because West Virginia then and now was out in the middle of fucking nowhere. Like it's it is just nowhere Stan so you could really get away with a lot of fucking over miners out there And another way they would fuck over. Minors was debt. Peon `age so pay for miners at this period. Happened like once a month and you also had to have been working for a full month to get any pay And obviously I don't know if you're aware of this but if people don't get food and water for a month they die. Oh Yeah I've heard such things. Yeah Yeah So. Companies would have to offer SCRIP TO WORKERS. Who Haven't gotten paid yet and this was like basically an advance on their salary And if you know. Workers didn't make quite as much as they thought they were going to make and they'd already spent the company script. They could wind up in a situation where they were indebted to the company for long periods of time and basically just kept having to take script to keep their family fed and never quite got out of debt..

Few more as a from face to to one aside from the Leafs who will have the highest panic level in round one. Well, that's a good question. You know, we probably is. It's probably the team is going to get Vegas. So San Jose or Calgary in Calgary's up three points right now. But you know, San Jose's really good. But but Winnipeg I think they're going to be okay. And besides panic level. No, go down to Cobb. Really? What's happening? Yeah. But I think everybody's like that. I mean, if they don't have more soon buffalo, and you're a lot more worried. But I think they're gonna be just calm. Okay. Dovetailing that Steve nests at quickness, what would be the most intriguing first round matchup from a media perspective. Actually, I guess thirty one the best one you could ever get. You're not getting it this year as much yell Toronto. Now, I know there's a lot of people. They're gonna vomit at that answer. But Montreal Toronto battle of Alberta's probably second. But Montreal Toronto is the thing that too many people have been winning for for a long time. The Montreal fans. Would love it. The Toronto fans would love it. Everybody else would be like I wish the ice would open up and swallow both teams and their fans whole by people. Don't like the platform. Matt I get it. I believe there would be less complaints about the playoff format. If it gave us more of these matchups if the islanders and Rangers played more if the leaves in the Canadians played more if there were battles of Alberda, we've gotten the LA one with Anaheim, we've gotten some here and there, but if we had more of those I guaranteed, you there'd be less complaining about it this year and for one year, only, you don't think that the most chaotic media friendly. I e best storyline series. Is leaves Allender oh would have been phenomenal. That would have been the storyline. That would have been these series from Paul Campbell from Ingle magazine. If you don't follow Paul by. Oh, this guy is one of my favorite falls way to go to win the backup or the euro. Really good. Well, listen Paul's fantastic. And here's a really interesting as well on this for a while is this the year brackets intentional goalie tandems break the ride one guy playoff strategy. We've seen forever. He Dallas doing that. If they have a long run those in Calgary's probably looking at that looking at that. Ever gonna break the saying if you have to number ones, you don't have a number number one. I don't know, man. Look at Dallas. Okay. So who's I know the Ben Bishop just had that three games and change shutout streak going. But look at what Anton khudobin been able to invest tandem in the NHL. It's in Dallas. Why would you not ride both? I always remember Tampa in two thousand eleven Bouche Ramin resting the way enroll in one game. Yeah. And he was what forty something years old at the time. They played Matthew, Iran. They said Rollason these arrest from Ben Spencer. How do you think player tracking will impact pro scouting contract negotiations and coaching if you're running team now, how would you prepare to leverage the new data? I think that a lot of what's going to happen is it will occur in ways that you don't see. Now, technically part of the deal with the player track. In the in the league is that you can't use it. In arbitration only published stats by the NHL arbitration by you don't think that people are going to be looking at and saying.

A lot of those players reflect those qualities, but at the end, some of the qualities that you say that I had are qualities that we can use we wanna have possession. We wanna have guys who can take on. There are not afraid to lose the ball and recover. It right back. But the key thing for our team is obviously we're going to be good. I think when we have the ball, but we also need to have those guys recover the ball quickly. Because if we don't have the ball, we're not going to be any good how much should you read into the four four two and the diamond it seems like the national team starting to the big boys. And now, it seems like that's something. You wanna do here is that is that more organizational is that across team. Lines. I mean, I only answer the question because people ask me about formations, but for me, it really doesn't make a difference. It depends on the players. And so if I had a guess where we're gonna play now. I mean, that's it because that's kind of what we've been working on. And that's what the players dictate we don't. We don't truly have wingers who play on the line who can take guys on and get crosses in nor. Do we have that toll powerful forward because because now Nevada which is not releasing because Ben Spencer hasn't been hasn't been playing in. So we don't have that either. So when you put it all together it adds up to you not being able to play four three three. And so that's you know, that doesn't mean that we wouldn't in the World Cup. But that's kind of where we're going to talk to me about that reading did not release him. That's not a huge shocker that happens with with you twenty tournaments. Why didn't they do that? How big of a blow is obviously it sounds like maybe that prevents you from really being at your best. If you were to play that for three. Well, I mean, it's it is the twenty. But in the end, it isn't it isn't unusual decision by club to not have a player participated in a world. Because poked play the last one. And I think he's pretty good. Thanks for your mentors in sorted condole via don't Don't have don't. hyphens in their name. But they're they're okay considering they don't have. No. But they had a Ford. France ahead had hyphen Noma. What was he went to Arsenault? Anyway. So, but no, I think, you know, obviously, it's it's it's important. But it's not, you know, we have a good relationship with reading and they've always done well in releasing players for the US national team, Bobby Kombi in the past, Danny Williams recently. So the fact that they made that decision we have to respect that because he's a young player. And if they feel that's what he needs than than we have to go with that. Well, he won't be there. But one more player will were still yet to see who that will be maybe Giddings allow him. We'll see what goes on with that paperwork, perhaps Zach Feffer either way the twenties kick off their World Cup journey may thirtieth at midnight eastern time. Myanmar sports one Fox Sports.
