And you have to look at the mayor and the City Council and the police chiefs for this, And when you look at a city like Louisville, you need to look at who what is the ideological makeup of the individuals who are writing these laws and regulations? There are a lot of variables that play in here. But people give up after exploring the first two because it's tiresome because it goes a lot deeper than a 32nd headline on cable news..

Breonna Taylor settlement is among largest payouts linked to a police shooting
"Gorman. If you wanna listen to it. Let's start with the settlements in Louisville with Briana Taylor's family a couple different things to run through of the next few minutes. Earlier this week, the Louisville metro government announced a $12 million settlement package with family of Briana Taylor. Of course, was 26 year old black woman who was shot in her own home by police officers serving a no knock warrant in March. The settlement also includes a Siri's of police reforms. Some of the reforms are changes to the approval process for an execution of search warrants. The hiring of social workers at the department a commitment to increase drug and alcohol testing of officers involved in any shooting, encouraging officers to perform at least two paid hours a week of community service in the communities they serve. And housing credits for officers toe live in certain low income parts of the city. And Felix, You took a look at the settlement. What stood out to you? Well, I think two things one. It was a record breaking settlement in and of itself. The $12 million payout. Briana Taylor's family's attorney, Benjamin Crump, represents George Floyd's family and multiple others in these situations, he said. It himself is the most money it's ever been paid for. A police involved shooting involving anyone, so that's significant itself. But Briana Taylor's mother, I said I think said it best. This is just the beginning the reform package they put together that was interesting that they the mirror who's got a vote of no confidence the other night. Apparently, you know, insisted that that was going to be part of the settlement agreement from the day one, which was good because they announced it together. It's not just about the money, but it's about the reform, which in one of these cases That's what is the driving factor, not necessarily the money. So you mentioned the key ones that are involved in this. It's interesting because we talked about the social worker aspect of Policing before because of a policy that sheriff Bob Altieri put in place here in Pinellas County, where he wanted social workers to go out to these mental health calls first on their own, try and de escalate them. And then if there's trouble than calling the police, which was You and I both thought that was a bad idea in this particular reform. Does that frothy area was that Holloway? That help earlier think that was. Yeah, I think it was cheap and also got a theory. But it's a same Pete initiative. So anyway, sorry about that. But in anyone what they will do in this case is social workers will go with The police officers on these calls or meet them out at the call, not endanger themselves. So it's kind of being that's what we thought should happen is that that's the more responsible, appropriate way to do it rather than just sending people out on their own. And then you know if the situation escalates. You got a problem on your hands. Yeah, exactly. Do you don't have time to wait for an officer to show up or say like, Hey, wait around the corner while I go talk to this person suicidal and walked in the bathroom of the gun. You know, and then ends up ends up shooting an unarmed social worker, and the other thing That's interesting is that we talked about the no knock warrants. They enacted a law in Louisville already doing away with down, But then they went one step further. Just like now, this is sheriff quality areas policy, which was the more hierarchy in terms of getting the warrant. So The way it used to work here in Fort is like you would have the detective's whether it's robbery homicide. Narcotics. Those are the ones that usually get the most warrants. They would review the case they would take their warrant to the state attorney's office. State attorney would review it and then they would be the ones to say Okay, you can go ahead and go to a judge. Well, what they done in Louisville and Penelas is that they built in another law of letter layer. Inside the department level, so supervisors will have to sign off on the warrants before they can Goth to get approval from prosecutors or the judges or accountability exactly within the department, So you don't have Because we've read the the warrants and the stories about what happened in Briana Taylor's case, and they were so thin in the connections they were trying to make Tio, the main suspect. They've lived on the other side of town, and the tenuous nature of it was the fact that she paid this guy's phone bill was an ex boyfriend of hers and also had his shoes delivered an Amazon package delivered and they immediately made the jump that that was somehow Drug trafficking activities, so that should be reviewed at a much higher level, and that's something I think I encourage. I think you'll see a lot more departments doing that. And like I said Florida, we have that additional level of the prosecutors by think it should go down one level more in order for the police involved to say, like hold on a second. Let's review this before. You go to a prosecutor with us because I got put into situations a lot of times where the detectives would get a thumbs down from a prosecutor on the case, and then they call another prosecutor in the prosecutor would say, Oh, no, This is perfectly fine. And so you have those sites of mixed messaging on stuff and that could get very dicey because not only if you go from one prosecutor, another And for example, I said, No, you don't have enough for a warrant, And then they go to another prosecutor that they're friends with. And they say, you know, they can approve the warrant that tire up to me, then you know, on Well at that point, So that's the thing the problem that they have with that so interesting reforms that they're going to do and the one I like the most. I think the most interesting is giving them the housing credits to move into. The neighborhoods that they are patrolling. So I want to see the follow up on that to see

The attorney Benjamin Crump, who is representing the family civil rights attorney is just wrapped up a press conference in Kenosha with the family of Jacob Blake. On a pretty impassioned called for fur piece. His mother, Julia Jackson, was ah, maybe one of the most powerful speakers that spoke during this press conference and She really, you know, didn't call for a thorough investigation and justice like we've heard in many of these press conferences before. Instead, she called for peace, and she seems to make it Larger than just what happened to her son. She said that the US is a house divided and she's praying for the police officers and their family but also praying for her son and other people have been affected by Incidences like this so called for peace and ah, and to tamp down the violence that's been occurring, and she said that if her son was aware of what was going on in the destruction, he would be very Unpleased. That is really, really positive and unbelievable. Information. Mark II. We had it on here in the studio. There's no sound because you know, we do a talk radio so but it was on and I did see her talking. But I am pleasantly surprised to hear that that is fantastic news. It was. It was a remarkable press conference. I mean, as the family spoke. Certainly there were the calls for a thorough investigation for thes police officers to be held responsible because it certainly as we've heard from Benjamin Crump. They believe this was unjustified and not a justified shooting by the police, and especially one that occurred in front of Jacob's kids. But of course, there's an investigation. Ongoing. The police really haven't said much about What they believe happened here. They haven't really said anything about the domestic violence are domestic disturbance call that led to the police showing up at this incident and then led to the shooting. They the person who recorded the video you know, many of us have seen and has gone viral. He said that he heard the officers shouting. Drop the knife. Now he's a little ways away, and But he said, I didn't see a knife so we don't know whether or not the police haven't even said whether or not they believe that Blake was armed in any way or not. So the police have not really said much investigation is ongoing. Could could take Some time for us to get some information from what they say happened, but it was very, very emotional press conference. At one point, it began with prayer. At one point, the father had to leave just because it was So emotional as a CZ one person I believe it was one of the attorneys was describing the injuries to his son, who is still alive, is in the hospital and apparently was undergoing surgery as they spoke, and they said he was You know, he has eight bullet holes in his body that he's you know, got a long road to recovery is most of his colon and small intestines are being removed. I mean, very, very serious injuries that he's faced. I actually heard the same thing with regard to these. Somebody yelling, Drop the knife that was in the video, and I think it was the same. The same guy, the one who took the video. The thing is with the video. You don't see what appears to be anything in his hands as he's heading toward the car, and then if if they were yelling it at that point before they open fire. Most of Jacob's body is behind that door and halfway inside the vehicle at that point as well, So it would be almost impossible to tell. And then also mark are you hearing they do not where Body cameras for the Kenosha police. They're correct. They don't have body. Yes, this become a secondary issue. In all of this is the fact that the City Council Years ago unanimously said that they recommend that the city's police department be outfitted with body cameras. But that has never happened. It never materialized. Even the mayor and the police chief at the time. Said. They were said they were in support of the idea. But then when it came time to really put up the money and purchased the cameras and move forward with the plan, things got delayed on and then so that's actually never come to fruition. Right now. They have a plan to essentially outfit the department. But it's been delayed all the way to 2022 right now. Police cruisers in the city are equipped with cameras, but we don't know. Whether or not those cameras captured any of this or any audio or anything like that. We just don't know that yet. Perhaps that will come out later. But yeah, example of where a body camera on officer Could perhaps provide some context because That video that we've all seen again. It's relatively far away. It's across the street, but it also doesn't show what led up to it. The prior you know the incident as it was occurring before The shooting occurred, and so there's a lot of missing context there. And this is where I think you're seeing. Some people say this should have been done a while ago. Mark Remillard ABC News Thanks for the very latest, appreciate you and stay safe and There also is news that Jacob Blake is paralyzed from the waist down just so that, too, and the doctors don't know if he's ever gonna walk again, the father saying.

"Jewish Defense League to help us. Aclu what's the Organization of White Evangelicals Down South? What is that call you know southern Christian Property What do you mean? Southern Baptist. Southern the southern the southern evangelical don't do White Group of religious leaders down south. See what you can't do is if you allow hate to exist then is going eventually get over there by you see but the Jewish defers league has to help us because it's a hate crime against black people most people that don't like black people probably don't like Jewish people either. Most people are like Jews or black people tablet. Don't like gay people most people that don't like none of them groups right there. Probably don't like the other group. So was we allow hate to exist on any form of any group of people for any reason that we allow it to go unchecked. It can easily spray it to the next group. That's why I'm calling on white outrage to join in with us because I know every white person I ever talked to says this is deplorable. All of them say this is deplorable. Okay did help us stand with us because when they see us out there. It don't count. Look now we've been marching for years and Colin and found ways to negate that. Yeah so now. What they do is every time they shoot one of us. They start doing a background. Check to tell you well. He had criminal background. He sows. We'd one time He. He stole a bookstore. So some chips and trying to discredit us. Says Floyd with resisting arrest and I saw the tape demand. What resistant. Nothing but when you had him on the ground though and the man was pleading for you to get up off a black do starts calling on his Mama. He is in his last moments of I got. I just helped my momma and maybe she can help me and you could see the man go out under his knee you. What is has in his pocket has in his pocket because he had the situation under control and he was comfortable with it. We got mattie on everybody to sit down and watch it even got was facing the camera de do not like it was not the. Yeah if you're talking about the offices now for the people who were saying that this the people with the cameras filming the DA. Something that's how you get killed. That's how you get. I'm talking about the officers Autism but oh this is what I wanted to say. Here's what bothers me about this situation. Police officers who work in high crime areas oftentimes complain that they can't solve crimes and they can't get to the root of the problem because there's a no snitch policy in the hood and if you all would help us solve these crimes instead of playing this no snitch rule. We could help keep you safe. That's the police. Don't all forty eight hours on forensic files on PD? Live if you watch these shows. That's number one complaint about high crime areas. They have a no snitch. Pot Ain't nobody seen nothing. Nobody no nut well. The police have a among each policy. Seek the police sit there and watch a crime in progress. Because you know this ain't right and because he is your brother in Bloom you sit there and allow a crime to be committed and you won't come forward to say this was wrong. 'cause you gotta stand with your brother because y'all put our lives on the line to out there streets now listen to me. You can't ask no snitching to work on this side. During had no snitching to work on that side. They have a department in the police department. Call internal affairs. All police officers hate. Do you know why 'cause they investigate police officers but what we need. Police officers be an investigative date at uphold the law because a lot of them not the majority but enough of them break the law to we have moments like. We have like this so until police officers. I think Benjamin brother chrome until police officers start standing up and saying hey man we got. We do this type of thing right here. I think the NO SNITCH is into police department. Big as it is in the criminal system. That's profound A. I remember going on some television shows when we were doing. And the Mike Brown Tamir ways case a certain Little network named after little. Amit rest through the woods and I would go out there and that the guy who is no own down who used to have the know spends on he would live. Let's say to me. Steve Poverty with Ben crump. We're here on another police shooting the UN uh black lives matter. People are saying that all police officers are bad. Do you believe that 'cause you agreed? Most police officers are good. People and Steve. I would always say back to the all that alone. You would agree that all black people ban. Wouldn't you agree most double my good? Because we can't let them have the high ground on morality. And what you can't Steve. Harvey is the perfect point. That I know all police officers aren't bad. Police officer they have the police officers. But why come these good police officers? Never tell them the bad police officers when they see them doing man Bra. We came win like this because they take an over the brothers in blue to stand with a sink or swim so now they go back and they cooperate each other story in a police report and so the beat goes on and then when black people kill somebody when when black people kill somebody white you going to jail and you already know it why people kill somebody black. We assemble a. You GotTa wait and see seagrams look over the tape all of that because they dammed tried to pull that down in. Brunswick Oh yeah because they was going to similar grand jury to see if to that father son murdered Aubrey. Nunn on our partner hold up and I do applaud this mayor in Minneapolis. You say he's a civil rights attorney and He reached out to the family. He he says Very appropriate thing. I think he was sincere But you're asking speaking so loud we not hear your words. It's going to be interesting that most time black people stay. We can't get justice if you don't go. The police officers don't go to prison. They'll give you a big settlement but you didn't get criminal prosecution. Where if you get the criminal prosecutions they say well. No the children can't get no settlement because it was intentional but when that white lady was killed in Minneapolis she got a criminal conviction and they took care her family and she didn't even have children now. George got two little children two girls that need to be taken care of. What is this mayor do for them after we please it because I love way? His brother says Steven. You're like this time. I know you will to. He said that the same way. They had.

Hope everybody kid about it. Because they know they're gonNA kill another black person and all that attention go from this case and so that's why we need to y y out rate Dave See. That's why I met with right now because I think like you said a second ago but and like I said before I have to repeat myself sometimes because I only got a couple of good saying so I I use a lot slate.

I don't know how to do it but I'm just starting it. I'm GonNa just start with me. Let me put something on the record for you. And surely because y'all do understand Minneapolis is where for Landau could steal with kills and his little girl was in the backseat. His girlfriend damage was facetime. Facebook live and did not convict that also but there was a white woman from Australia in the a easy. Opn police officer shot her in a dark alley. They convicted him and sent him to prison for fifteen years excessive force and then they awarded her family. Twenty five million dollars without even them having the power loss to spill he is a killer. Did Not go to prison. And they only gave his family three point. Five million dollars when we talk about the value. Black Life so fascinating. Now that we're in the same city old George Laura case that with all due respect to philander and the woman from Australia I think is far more terrific and so Minneapolis. What are you GONNA do now? How you gonNA treat this black life whereas the white people say jars flawed needs to have equal justice where the please go to prison and his two children one of them six year old one of them twenty two who can get a college education and that since. Oh baby when she grow up Steve and she's about ten or eleven and she's learning about to be a woman and she says whereas my Daddy.

When I first saw the video I said Oh my God. This is another Air Gardner. I can't breathe case but if twenty twenty caller Charlotte and it's worse its worst because literally UC see a man who is face down stay in handcuffs and you see a police officer with his knee on his neck. Not For one man not for two minutes not but three minutes not before minutes not for five minutes not for six minutes seven minutes not for eight minutes but for nine minutes and I keep doing that for dramatic effect Steve. Because people need to realize how long does brother was down there they again call up his Mama Fan. I can't breathe and the fact that these police officers offer him no humanity. I mean you had the citizens in the public fans. Please get your knee off his neck. Iago kill them. They were trying to deescalate the situation. While the police were supposed to be trained in de-escalation escalate and I just try to make this point so grasp it. If you out there in America just take it and make your stop watch but nine minutes and then let the time. Pass the time passing. I want you to sit there and try to think if you have somebody who had their knee on your neck and you were trying to breathe and you can't begging them. Please take your knee off my mic. And and and all these minutes past and you suffocate to death. Well that if the last minute that George floored was on this earth ended in the tragedy and it is murder. That is what it is it. You'd be pointed out something that this man was on the ground with this man's knee on his neck foot nine minutes and you're trying to get people to understand how long that he is now. Let's talk about coffee. You talked about training. What is it I mean when you when I see a victim handcuffed? And he's face down I don't I don't know of any man that can whoop me this face down and handcuffed behind his back. I just don't know I I don't see how you can put me. You might but I I mean especially and I have a gun I have a Taser and I have a billy club and so I'm trying to understand what's in the training manual for the knee and neck. You know that's what they always try to say that they're trained to use necessary ports but that was nothing necessary about putting your when you already got him handcuffed and he's already space down and police expert tells US Steve. I don't know if you noticed how he had his hand in his pocket the whole time so no chimney young man. I got hit the how comfortable. The police officer was that this was totally under control. I've got this man. Handcuffed Ma full body weight with my knee on his neck. I put my hand my pocket because there's nothing he can do to me. I was sitting there going. Okay so let me ask you this man. Okay now. Some pictures have surfaced of this police officer with a hat says make quite great again Have you seen this? I have seen it? We haven't been ABLE TO AUTHENTICATED STEVE. Okay got so we we Have not validated. But we do know these officers. These officers that were terminated stay had had allegations previously of using excessive force. And we believe the majority does for on. Black. Hey you know something Attorney crump you and I have talked about this many times. I have come to the conclusion that this is what I think. In my opinion pass to happen. I understand the angle. I understand the protest. I get it man. When you take people who have been trying to get your attention for a while They may and so I understand the protests not the protest that turned violent. That's we understand the anger. I I just get their anger. I think there's something else that has to happen. Attorney crump hang on. We'll be right back. We got more with attorney. Crump right after this. I have several questions for you about this case so please hold on. You're listening to the morning show. I tell back We back with a civil rights attorney.

I just asked if I could find just a few good white folks just a few who are as outraged as we are. I then asked the few good white folks.

Her score was invalid name tell you day, you need to practice and working studied you do better. But then when you do better they question the educational testing service which oversees testing for college entrance exams told Campbell that her scores under review because of discrepancies on her answer key because it improved for over three hundred points. So they're saying I approve basically too much. And that's kept ical for them. Campbell credits are more than three hundred point improvement with months of steady tutors and a free online SAT prep program. They're not looking at it. As is maybe c- studied, Megan, she focused, and dedicated herself. So passing this test.

Her attorney Benjamin Crump is considering a lawsuit intend to fight for the legitimacy of communities test scores despite the setback Campbell remains hopeful. I'm proud of myself, and I need my scores Elise. Education testing services told us they don't cancel scores based solely on a point increase.
