$2 Million Raised on GoFundMe for Kansas City Shooting Victim
"Ladies and gentlemen, gentlemen and ladies, welcome back to the ASTRO Tatum show. I know there's a whole bunch of stuff going on in the media, but I need to talk about what I want to talk about. And I need to talk about that shooting that happened out there in Kansas City where the young man went to the door of the wrong house, allegedly looking for his brother and an 84 year old man shot him through the door and he went to the hospital recovered. He's now raised over $2 million in the GoFundMe. Also scammy, racist, what they call attorney Benjamin crump is on the case why because he see dollar signs. Let me tell you where he ain't on the case. Now, let me preface this before I tell you where he ain't on the case. Now, I don't know what happened in the situation. I wasn't there. They're not giving a lot of detail information. What we do know is that at least the first shots came through a glass door. So it's not apparent if there's a racial motive for some reason in our country, people are dumb enough to believe that just because one person is this race and the other person is another race. It happened to be racist. You know what I mean? I say people are dumb enough to believe. People are malicious enough to believe and dumb enough to believe that racism only go one way. So if it was a black man shooting a white person outside of his door, they wouldn't call it races, but since the white man shooting a black kid outside of his door, they somehow perceived it as racist. On top of the fact that they assumed they know what's going on and they really don't even know what going, what's going on.

What a wonderful title Heather. Welcome back to the program. It's wonderful being with you, Charlie. Thank you for having me on. So Heather, how should we think about the George Floyd two that wasn't? It seemed as if the media was ready for another explosion in Memphis. In fact, The New York Times had dispatched 11 reporters to Memphis alone, how should we think about what happened in Memphis? Well, the official narrative about this is it was because the cops were charged so quickly, although that now is being viewed as an act of racism on the part by Benjamin crump, the ubiquitous civil rights attorney and other race activists. So you can't win either way. But I think the more likely reason is that even though we weren't told this as long as possible, these were black cops not white cops. If there had been 5 white cops engaged in this utterly abysmal display of police brutality and competence, I think cities would probably be smoldering still today.

"A 7 year veteran of the Tucson police department. He's a YouTube sensation with over 2 million subscribers. He started black set with Candace Owens and now he's tackling his biggest assignment yet. This is the officer Tatum show. Ladies and gentlemen, gentlemen, ladies, welcome back to the office of Tatum show. Y'all know I have to talk about these Memphis police officers who've been arrested and charged the indictment is coming down for murder in the second degree amongst other charges. The charges that I saw on the book so far as second degree murder, aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping and official misconduct is what the charges are. These police officers are all black, black men between the ages of 24 and 32, and they have experience on the police department for between two and a half to 5 years. These police officers were a part of what they would consider on their department of scorpion unit. A scorpion unit is designated for high crime area, high saturation of specialized police officers that are there to stop crime. Now, I have my opinions about this because I never, I want you to hear me out. I never believe what the media says at face value. I never believed what the police chief says, because this particular police chief, I think her name is Carolyn, if I'm seeing it right, it could be sitting I don't know why she spill it like this, spell it regular woman. Carolyn Davis, who's a black woman, came out and made some of the most ridiculous statements that I have ever heard from a police chief. It is asinine to me. That you are telling the public that a person is innocent it's a proven guilty. And you are making commentary about the conduct of your police officers. You are supposed to be impartial. You're making, you're making commentary about your police officer's conduct on a body one camera video that nobody has seen but the family. And of course, the criminal and I don't call them a criminal. I can't stand them. I'm trying to find an adjective to describe him, but Benjamin crump, who's an ambulance chaser. He's only involved with cases if you're going to make your money. If your son get killed today on justifiably, by anybody other than a police officer, Benjamin crump would not show up to support you. But Benjamin crump and the family saw the video footage, I want to read a clip or at least say an excerpt from what the police chief said. The Memphis police chief, it makes it actually makes me sick to my stomach. She said in a statement, I expect you to feel what, I think it's Nicole's family feels. The Nichols family feels, I'm sorry. The Nichols family feels, I expect you to feel outraged. In the disregard of basic human rights, I expect our citizens to exercise their First Amendment rights to protest. To demand action and results, but we need to ensure our community is safe in this process. What kind of police chief would say something like this before anyone else had a chance to look at the video. Lady, you are indicting your own police officers. Before they had a right to due process, it is stupid, it's irresponsible, and it bugs me. Because even if the cops are wrong, you are not a participant in the process. And you know what's funny is that these chiefs don't have a quorum about them to come out and say that the officers were wrong, but when the officers were doing something appropriate, they won't come out and say anything. They let the news run away with the narrative. And in this case, I wonder if she trying to get ahead of something to save her, you know what? Instead of keeping it real, I want to know. I haven't seen anybody on camera footage, so I'm not going to say these officers did it. Because I have seen with my own two eyes, 90% of these cases, that they're claiming that the officers acted inappropriately even getting indicted. These officers were not acting inappropriately. The Atlanta police officers that were involved in the tasing of a kid in the car got fired, they ended up suing the police department. I believe they sued as well as the officers and Rashad Brooks case. They fired them, they wanted to indict those officers in the full beat up the officers ran and turn the tape and pointed at the officer face, which is a use of deadly force. And the necessitated a daily force response. They were wrong and indict those police officers. Wrong. You could go any philando Castile. That officer was not indicted. Because he shouldn't have been. Now people may think, oh, that was a close call, but you got to look at the law. And I feel like that they are hell bent on making examples of officers instead of holding the public accountable. And this is the prediction that I'm going to make, I'll just say something real quick, and I haven't watched the body one camera footage. It will be released and I will do a full thoroughfare review, and if these officers are cutting up, I'm going to call them out for cutting up. And if they didn't do nothing wrong, I'm going to say that they didn't do nothing wrong, and they were justified under the law, but you know people cave under pressure because they're not built for this. And I would argue that this police chief is wrong by coming out and making any statements. Whatsoever with doubt, do process. You're creating a narrative without anybody being able to judge the video for themselves. So I'll make this prediction very simple prediction. You don't get your kicked if you ain't doing nothing. If you I guarantee you that this person, this young man who lost his life at the hands of these police officers and others, 'cause they did a fire two Memphis fired a fire department employees and their investigating another police officer for infraction of department policies. I guarantee you, and this was supposed to be a traffic stop. I guarantee you that he didn't just stop and follow direction of police officers. I could almost swear before God, this wasn't a traffic stop like when I got pulled over. Were you stop and the officer say, show me your driver's license and insurance and you show them your driver's license and insurance? And the officer asks you to do something and you do it, I can not put my life on it that that's not what happened. I bet you that he didn't follow instructions, he didn't follow directions. There was some resistance. There was some fleeing, I haven't seen none of the body on camera footage. But I can put two and two together to say, they could have been excessive in their use of force. They could have been wrong. But I guarantee that this man wasn't just doing nothing. Riding in this car being a regular citizen. We shall see, and I will come back on the radio and say, I'm wrong, it's too left shoes on an 8 legged man. If it comes to find out this man was just sitting in his car and was doing nothing and following every instruction and fire police officers just beat the snot out of him. I would be, I would almost want to bet I'd just quit the radio if that was the case. They just beat him up and he was just sitting in the car. 5 of them beat him up. Now, you know, Benjamin crump is one of the crookedest lawyers in my personal opinion. Only taking cases where he's going to make a lucrative paycheck on, his statement about the body worn camera footage that he saw was that this beating was comparable to the 1991 Los Angeles Police assault of your boy,

Tom, thank you so much for having me and helping us to amplify this story. I am in go for Mississippi covering the story of 15 year old jaheem McMillan, who was shot according to eyewitnesses, point blank range with nothing in his hands and his hands were up. And Tom, this is a unique situation because several of the eyewitnesses are southerners, mississippians, white conservatives, video I shared on my Twitter timeline shows a white man in a thin blue line. Sure. Literally a pro police officer being the most vocal and the most upset because he saw what he called a point blank cold blooded murder. And with regard to the body cam footage, the chief of police has let it be known that they are not going to release that footage until the end of the year. Until the end of the year, yes, sir. Why? They say it is material to their investigation and they have turned it over to the Mississippi bureau of investigations. And so as a matter of law, they are not required to release it. But as I have seen in so many cases, if this video exonerated their officer, they would have released it in the first 24 hours. Oh, in the first 24 minutes. Totally with you, Ben. We're talking with Ben Dixon, the Benjamin Dixon morning show. This is grim stuff. How is the community reacting? Is there are you expecting that there will be protests and those sorts of things? There have been nonstop protests every day since jaheem was killed. The protests are continuing.

"At this point not surprisingly kendrick. Johnson's parents were having trouble accepting the g. b. is findings. There were too many things that weren't lining up so the johnsons hired prominent civil rights. Attorney benjamin crump. Here's something super weird. Benjamin crump found out during his investigation. The surveillance footage used by the georgia bureau of investigation to support their conclusion. That kendrick died by accident. That surveillance footage was not obtained by the gb. I rather it was provided to the g. b. I by the school district and not only that but the school district got to decide what they did and did not want to provide basically the investigators should have gone to the school district and confiscated the entire digital video recording system but instead they made a request for footage from that wing of the school and only that wing for the time in question and the forty eight hours leading up to it. It took the school district. Five days to provide a hard drive with the footage that after independent investigation seems to be missing a lot of information for example in all four videos from the four cameras that cover the gym. There's a gap in footage of one to two hours. Timestamped from two of the cameras jumps from eleven five. Am to one fifteen and one sixteen pm respectively and the time stamp from the other two cameras goes from twelve o five pm to one. Oh nine pm which is when kendrick. Johnson was last seen crossing the gym. There's more gaps in the footage over the next few hours and there's no footage of the discovery of kendrick's body. The next time we see kendrick on surveillance. His body is being wheeled out of the gym in a body bag. What happened during that gap in footage. Was it just a weird camera. Malfunction that affected all four cameras at once. That seems unlikely. The cameras were motion censored and footage from right outside the gym during that two hour gap shows plenty of kids entering and exiting the gym. So the cameras inside. The gym would have been switched on with their movement. Was it a weird malfunction. The time stamp data no because then we would have seen kids entering the gym from the camera actually in the gym in a pretty continuous shot. Even if the time stamp was wrong you could piece together the events and what time they actually happened. So now we have oregon's clothes physical evidence from the scene of the incident and footage missing. It's not hard to understand why kendrick's family began to suspect a cover up if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck in the words of attorney. Benjamin crump at best. It was incompetence at worst. It was some conspiracy to conceal the truth and so in june of twenty fifteen. The johnsons filed a wrongful death. Suit claiming that kendrick was beaten to death by several former classmates.

"Warning of a heightened threat environment because of violent domestic extremists. I had talked briefly of Robert Culture beyond those of former Secret service agent so What's really interesting about this, Um Is it? Yeah, Okay. We have domestic terrorism. We've always had pocket to that right. And the real fear is that these violent actors have targeted telecommunications and health care now and and they're citing misinformation and conspiracies about covert 19. On describing deliberate misinformation. And so now we know there's a clampdown on social media. Nothing new there. In through social media able to spread this of okay, Here's the real question now, now that we're post election everything else And who determines what a what's a theory versus what's symbolism versus what's opinion. And, you know, I mean, you can't You can't regulate that. They're trying to regulate that now and you can strip people of their Twitter feeds Facebook accounts. Kick them off social media, whatever. But if you're gonna make an attempt now, now that we look at it this this, you know the wake of this. We're in the wake of this thing right now. How do you sit down and use algorithms to determine all that? And what is acceptable misinformation? What's not Because that Z true, right? It's in the abiding beholder. Meet. Sometimes you're in Opinion. Which doesn't necessarily have to do With fact, those are two different things. You can derive an opinion from fact. But you can also interpret facts to fit your opinion. If that makes sense. How the hell you going to regulate this online? Here's Robert call to be Jano on how this is all fueling this. Social media adds to it. Think about it for a minute and all your listeners out there. All listeners imagine 20 years ago if somebody would would have put the head of former President Clinton and posted that and you know the shock and all that would have been in that person we know would have Could have been either arrested or or spoken to, and you know, in basically Lose their job because that's what happened today. In this atmosphere. When you hold the head of president effigy, or you're saying we're gonna blow up the White House and you know, get in their faces that is coming from Current people in politics. This is the atmosphere that it's leading to. So you know, you have certain people that are leading the charge in certain ways. But then you know, backing off, but then they complain about the former president on But he said. But it's nowhere comparison and I'm you know rice mental as to what the line keeps moving. It's like you did this so I can do that, and it's like top. All right, Robert, cultivating a little thing. Yesterday He was late to show 11 of six and 700 wlw. If you wanna hear the whole thing on the podcast on the inherent radio app, and I bring this up to because you know it's pretty heady stuff in serious stuff, but How does this going effect and how you really gonna be able to crank down on a lot of this stuff? You know, overall if you talk to the American people 60% of us think that social media companies banning conservative accounts includes the president were the right thing to do. So, six out of 10. Americans say Yes, absolutely. But it's more interesting than that. Because something like nine out of 10, Democrats and Democratic leaders say that it was the right thing to do so the polarization is most definitely there now. Yes, we know. Democrats were largely silent when Maxine Waters called for people to confront members of The President Trump's Cabinet in public places, But then I look, you know Cory Booker, for example. Told activist to get up in the face of some Congress people. Jon Tester, who is a senator from Montana, I believe Seven. In order to take on the right you have to punch them in the face. Now. To be sure what they said. Never let anything didn't lead to what we saw in January 6 and I think that's an important nuance. But guess what? That's not what Twitter and media platform social media platforms in American said What the alleged mandate here is this. They should remove heated, aggressive and untrue. Inflammatory content. American quote here. Okay, so when words lead to actions through misinformation and lies. That's what we're talking about. Okay, So can you give me a clear cut case where misinformation and lies have led to social unrest, people getting hurt, injured or maybe even killed. Okay. How about this? And I read this this morning as the two officers are back on the job in Kenosha, who had a hand in the debt. Well, who had handed who some say murdered? I disagree with that murdered Jacob Lake. And What about all the incendiary lives have caused Kinoshita burn? You have to this day, the family Pastors. The lawyers night. Benjamin Crump is representing the family, saying he was unarmed. The amount is sheer amount of lies. Told during the development. The story is absolutely mind boggling. Lakes own lawyers. Still, Benjamin Crump still pushing that he was there. Oh, he's there to help somebody out in these cops shot him, and they had no reason to and do they had a warrant out for his arrest. When this is kinda graphic, right? When he stuck his finger inside his baby Mama. And smell. It himself said and said it smells like you been with other men in front of the kids. Now these same poor innocent babies and had to watch their daddy get shot. What? Okay, if we're gonna forget about semantics of that, What about fire the the year over here doing this in front of baby Mama. Are doing this to baby mom from the kids. If you care about the kids so much, So she called 911 on him because he refused to give back the keys to his rental her rental, I think, and then was going to take the kids now. She had custody, full custody. The kids If he had taken those kids that's kidnapping. The felony. Guess what? Even in that interviewed Michael Strahan. After all this, he turns out he did have a knife. And admit it's as such, during the interview with Michael Strahan. So in other words, he gets in a wrestling math with cops. Somebody's able to slip out. He gets tased three times. Despite all of these commands, and he's either able to pick up a knife or attempted to pick up the knife, whatever, wasn't it? Yeah, that's when I hit him. And on top of that, after this whole thing, there's text messages about lying to investigators and with the with the girlfriend right that he had sexually assaulted earlier. Now, here's the galling part about this, and we talk about Social media and responsibility. And how these companies rebuttal. Regulate misinformation. And we've got to stop this. We gotta nip it in the bud. Okay? Isn't this misinformation? Isn't the narrative that's continuingly being pushed in this particular story, which is not You know, conservative friend. I don't even think it's and that's a stupid thing to say right because this affects all of us. So you have all this incendiary behavior online and they're still videos. They're still clips. There's still all this stuff out there about what happened to notion. Now that's in the rear view mirror. But my fears what happens tomorrow and on top of that. It totally got legitimized. No one paid attention this whatsoever. Kamila Harris visited this guy on the campaign trail. Said she was proud of him. And the icing and you go well, slowly. There was only you know, with the investigation was incomplete. Okay, that's fair. But even after the investigation concluded How's it and Biden and Vice President Harris flew the family to D C to tend the inaugural There's like celebrating the family, The lawyers and the legacy of Jacob Lake. Is this poor innocent man. When the narrative the police narrative, the investigation like 600 Man hours of research, and all the stuff comes out to the point where the cops are back on the job today because What we thought we saw Nick Sand man, It turns out that wasn't the whole story. And yet you continue to double down on the nonsense and stupidity. It's like when Chris Seelbach right after after the next hand, man thing came out.

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.
