Sgt. John Mattingly's Message to Officers in the Field
"That. family. We're talking to the author of 12 seconds in the dark, a police officer's firsthand account of Brianna Taylor raid from sergeant Mattingly you mentioned just now that you're just trying to do your job sergeant Mattingly. I just want to ask you one more question before I encourage everybody to read your book. I presume you retired or you've left the force right now. Tell me how did your colleagues who are still in the force, Friends you have in other jurisdictions. I mean, 'cause I'm a civilian, but I served in the British Army, but I've trained thousands, thousands and thousands of law enforcement officers across the country, local state, federal. And I just don't know how you guys go to work anymore. How you put on the badge, strap on the gun, and go to work when the mayor, the local commissioner, doesn't have your back and when you are prayed to political enemies that can ruin the life of your whole family, what is your message to those officers who are still in the bag? Well, it's tough because people say, man, would you do it again? And I say, yes, I would do my career again because I enjoyed it. I loved it. Would I start over now as a new guy doing it? Probably not for the simple fact that, like you said, there's just no support from upper command, especially if you're in a liberal city like lovo is and like all the main cities, you're already behind the 8 ball, just trying to do the right thing and to pull the laws that are on the book. So I would tell them we need you, we have to have you. You're the one holding the line. We appreciate you and I hope you continue to do it because we do need you as America. And that's the whole point in the book. It isn't about John. It isn't about just my situation. This is hopefully a wake-up call to America to say, hey, if we continue to travel down this path, if we keep going the direction we're going and chasing off all the good cops and prosecute in the ones who are just doing their jobs, you're going to get the bottom of the barrel. We're going to be what we were in Detroit in New Orleans in the 80s. And you're going to have corruption to the level you've never seen, and that's not what you want, and that's not what America
Sgt. John Mattingly Describes the Details of the Breonna Taylor Raid
"Written a book that is 12 seconds in the dark, a police officer's firsthand account of the Brianna Taylor raid. The mainstream legacy line media would say that this was a no knock warrant. You guys burst in, you started firing and this woman was killed in her sleep or in her bed. When you tell us who Kenneth walker is and who Brianna Taylor was. Okay, Kenneth walker was Brianna's current boyfriend. Now the guy that she was associated with in this narcotics ring's name is JaMarcus clever. And that's an ex-boyfriend and on and off boyfriend that she still had very close ties to. Matter of fact, just in January 2 months prior to this incident, she had bailed him out of jail for the same thing drugs and guns that used her address for that. He used it that her address for his license for his registration of his vehicle for his phone service for his bank account. So everything tied those two together. However, she was dating Kenneth walker at the time. And he happened to be at her house that night. We didn't know he was there when we were going the Intel we had was very limited, and it said that they thought she was going to be alone. Breonna Taylor was she did work in the hospital's part time. They keep saying she was a nurse. She went to nurse. She was a, she had been certified as an EMT in early or late 2015. She only did that for 5 months and was fired by the city of Louisville with a no rehire, claws in there because a lot of rumors going around. I can't justify those rumors, so I won't, I won't say when we requested the information for her file, they refused to give it because they said they didn't want to disparage her name. All the while they threw us under the bus every chance they got. We're not going to talk about certain accusations. Let's just say, was it rumors of criminality or something she did inappropriately related to possible crimes? Well, all the guys I know that are taught in the EMS, even some of the higher ups say that there was accusations of selling narcotics from the ambulance. Wow. Or maybe transport them to JaMarcus Glover. But again, those are unsubstantiated rumors and I hate because of the way I've been treated for the last two years. I hate to paint somebody in that picture.

"It seems as if our bipartisan negotiations around police reform have done exactly what we all knew it was going to do which is completely and totally combust. Why is that well because we like to protect killer cops in the united states and it really doesn't matter what party you are. a part of. We like to believe that democrats want to do the quote unquote right thing and have qualified immunity. Meaning that you know. We don't just believe police officers when they say that they feared for their lives. So we don't just believe police reports and that you can actually be criminally held liable for the death of someone that you have killed but you see in the united states which grew its police force out of the slave catchers. It doesn't surprise me that then when we finally have a 'nother national killing of an unarmed black person as we did in the summer of twenty twenty right on the cost right. We had a mod aubrey. Then we had george floyd then in the mix brianna taylor and so many others that were killed. In that summer of uprisings we would say. We need to reform the police. We need to de-fund the police and you know we've had conversations about the car. Silicon with the authors of that book last week. Well here's what happened this week. Senator cory booker and senator tim. Scott both black senators one on one side and one on the wrong side. Their talks fell apart. Folks and cory booker released this statement. That i want to read to you you know. Here's the thing. I adore cory booker. I think that he's a great senator. I think that he has a great vision of who this country could be right. If in fact we did the right things. If in fact every time we had an opportunity to take ten steps forward we wouldn't decide to take forty five steps back but that's what we do all the time but this is what he said about. The bipartisan right. We love to throw this fucking word around as if we're not trying to negotiate with a group of domestic terrorists but alas let me read the statement. America has a serious problem when it comes to discriminatory policing an excessive and deadly force used against communities of color. We can't properly honor the lives of the victims of this violence if we don't take meaningful steps to prevent future violence and deaths from occurring and make our.

"During my tenure in congress made this district in the lives of the people here far better than when i entered into commerce in in that moment right now This is the opportunity. I believe of our generation to make that shift. We have an administration in the beigin harris administration has at least articulated a desire to close. The disparities said recognize that black lives matter and to put their policy and resource where Where their mouth is and on the legislative end in the house of representatives in congress. We have a unique opportunity because my party happens to be the party and in the majority in the house and the senate and so Really a standing up a strong policy. platform that gives momentum to the type of change a that. Our communities have been crying out for that. This pandemic has made even more. Urgent will be a mild legacy to that to the people of the ninth district of new york and what is amazing. Talk about you mentioned as very important in know we told us in the past about the connection of all the things you mentioned from police brutality to the pandemic to pollution to poverty And that's one of the things. I don't think a lot of folks who tune in to the work around what we do around climate. But they don't understand. Sometimes how all these things connect how ratio justices climate justice in. How climate is racial justice. Huddled things can how. All those things can any in also immigration. How do all those things connect for you in your daily a job on congress. Well what i shared with. Everyone is the ninth district. New york is sort of the epicenter. Of course all of the disparities That you know it is given recognition in this in this time and in this space You know we had some of the largest marches In last summer around black lives matter around. George flawed brianna taylor and in that march was a multigenerational multi racial multi ethnic movement of people that understood shelves in their bones The need to be a part of the to demand that these changes take place in our society. and when you think about What moves us in that way. I think it's the fact that we recognize that black communities have had to be the brunt of every illness Every exploitation even up to this very day that obey dan sort of white supremacy based Governance structure has has has been Has been pushing has been Sort of constructing around us and and and we have been unfortunately You know on the receiving end of just such horrible policy whether it's Red lining which sources black and low income families into the least desirable locations to live typically aroused power plants four polluting environments. Be it You know waste disposal dumps waste. Transfer stations Power plants and that has impacted our health. Brian and that's based on of course Racist government backed policy of red lining not allowing black people to receive mortgages or to find a audible housing in more affluent communities. sprites Then you have the issue of okay. You live in those circumstances. You're now all up in one area. You are impoverished and the police that community become an occupied because when you're living in poverty. Your health is not well health. Being both physical and mental health you will encounter hostilities within your own community. Whether it's from you know folks who do you harm in within your own community or those who police you when you call for help Their perception of who you are that is all compounded by a marginalizing and a At a diminishing of humanity that has been relegated communities of color in particular communities of african descent so when we talk about environmental justice when we talk about how climate change when we talked abou- systemic racism When you talk about police brutality. It's comprehensive and the life and well being of people of african descent in this country that they're they're inextricably linked just based on the policies that have become a way of life for not only the black community but for the white community. Because when you turn a blind eye to the conditions a fellow human beings generation after generation when you buy into the rhetoric of disenfranchisement of dehumanization. Then you become a part of the problem and fake that again for this generation what we were able to see. Because we had to be still during the pan-demic in the chilling of george floyd and brianna taylor and so many others was a tipping point for those who could not look away and they had the iso been And they should choose whether they wanted to go back to sleep or they want to stay. Brian and many chose to stay well. And that's why believed. This is the opportunity. This is the moment for bold and decisive action. That changes the trajectory of the way in wedge. Black people have been relegated to living lights in our civil society. Let me ask you a question on that. And i wanted to actually set up a little bit here and this question so when the things that people sometimes and this is kind of the spirit of james baldwin that to be in this country to be black is to be. Sometimes there's to be angry a lot of the time. And that's kind of a paraphrasing of the quote. But i.

"Takeaway. I'm Melissa Harris Perry. Say her name her name. You must say her name. She cannot be forgotten Bias. Say her name, honey, say her name, say, huh? Name That's composer and soloists Alicia Leigh leading the chorus of the University of Michigan and a piece that captures the Agonizing reality of deadly state violence against black women like Brianna Taylor. State violence against black women, fem and Queer Folk is rarely at the center of mass mobilization and media attention, and that's despite the fact that black women are overrepresented among the people shot and killed by the police. And the reality that transgender people are more than three times as likely to experience police violence as CIS Gender people with me now is Andrea Ricci, co founder of Interrupting Criminalization, an initiative that aims to end the criminalization of women and LGBTQ people of color. He's also author of Invisible No more Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color. Great to have you Back on the show, Andrea So good to be back in conversation with you, Melissa. Let's talk for a moment about Brianna Taylor and the ways that there was kind of a twin mobilization around George Floyd and Brianna Taylor. But Very little sense. There has been any justice done in the case for Brianna. Yeah. Unfortunately, you know one thing that you and I have been in conversation about these issues for many years, and I think you know Brown and Taylor's case brought more visibility than I've seen in 30 years of organizing around black women's experiences of police violence, too. Our experiences of police violence, But unfortunately, visibility is just the starting point. It can't be the end game and we haven't made progress towards a world where Brianna would still be with us, and that would be a world where we would Need to end the war on drugs that killed her, not just one particular form of raid That isn't even going to be stopped by the laws have been passed. And so I think the the lesson is more and more people are aware that black women are the group most likely to be killed by police when unarmed of any group, but we haven't yet taken the action needed. To stop that from being the case to stop the killings from happening in the first place, and also to pay attention to the other forms of violence that black women and girls experience at the hands of police. Such as sexual violence that you know, for instance, the officer who killed Brianna Taylor had engaged in multiple times beforehand, and perhaps if we had paid more attention to that Brianna would still be with us today. There was a young black woman Zoya code who was also choked by Derek shave in several years before he murdered George Floyd in the context of a call for help, And if we had paid more attention to her case, perhaps it would be in a different position as well. So I think we really need to move beyond visibility to action that's really informed by black women and girls and trans and queer people's experiences of police violence. What are some of the reasons that we don't pay attention? I think the basic reason is that this country and our society is built on violence against black women, girls, queer and trans people, and it's inherently and intentionally invisible ized as a result. The other piece of it is that black women girls and trans people often experience police violence in the context of calls for help, and that produces discomfort when police liturgy itemized their existence around the fact that there needed to respond to calls for help. So in other words, if the vast majority of police violence against black women and girls takes place in the context that police used to legitimize their existence, then that's going to produce an uncomfortable silence.

Okay, We've got some race baiting to do here. Um, Okay, So here's the story. Here's the way it reads. A black man who was left paralyzed from the waist down after he was shot by a white police officer in Wisconsin expects to be walking soon, an accomplishment, he says, is tempered by fears of it happening again. Happening again was shot seven times by Kenosha Police officer Three months after George W. Bush set off days of protests about 100,000 look at midway. One could even going to pay those rather insurgent. Well, yes, you could. They told CNN. He was a few steps during somebody celebration this past week, which he compared to something like that, or whatever. What does that mean? Okay, So are you Are you still going to be planning on violating restraining orders and trying to steal a vehicle and kidnap Children in the process and resist arrest? If you're if you're not going to do Any of those things. You have approximately 0% chance of being shot by a police officer. Correct. So why in the world to the CNN's and USA Today's of the world continue with this lie. Because they've lost some liberal street cred by criticizing Biden over this Afghanistan the bottle. You know that's a great point, David, it really is. Even they couldn't hide from this one. Right. The street cred doesn't is diminishing. Brianna Taylor is getting nasty. Emails now. Oh, boy.

Oh, Because he was having an anxiety attack said. I'm hearing these booms, the fireworks Um, and it's not scaring me because I got shot. It's scaring me because of all those people who have gotten shot. So every time a boom went off, I'm kind of imagining people dying. Has anybody interviewed the woman that he allegedly raped? Know that at times No. No. I don't think so. And I get it that he's not talking about gang on gang crime, either where most people do die. As far as people getting shot. It's not by the police. No It's by other gang members, so I don't know it doesn't make clear exactly what's freaking him out there. Okay? Um But he said, uh You know that pocket? I fell from his pants during the scuffle. He wasn't gonna do anything with it. He was just heading to a vehicle to drive away with two of his kids, and he said he was prepared to surrender. Once you put the knife in the vehicle, Okay, All right. That's not true, Bitch right here. The jury. This is why, Oh, my no reason for me to bring this story up to date unless it had some real jewels said I was just picking it up to make sure I didn't lose it. I was was definitely going to surrender to the cops. The dude walked away, not only after being while they attempted to restrain him. But then they deployed a taser on him, and he still kept walking.

But when i thought about it when i thought about how the person who was in the seat at the time could've voted to militarize the police just two months before michael brown was murdered. And he didn't. And i thought about so many other things but how people didn't show up for us doing ferguson. I realized and then. How do i save the life with my son. What if my son is the next hashtag would be saying i could have done more if my daughter was the next. Would i say. I could've done more and i didn't want to have to say that. So iran and the second time when iran had a lot more help us senator bernie sanders even the first race in at bernie sanders took notice but But just even having. That help helped me to kind of get my name out there. I was in a film. I met Aol alexandra costacurta an emmy villela. Apology swearing gin. And so many others we met at that time. Elsie and i became friends. We were in a film together and that film really helped to get the word out about who we really are. Because so many people saw corey the protests there but they didn't see my humanity and that film helped people to see my humanity and then senator sanders and his team just really helped to get the word out about our races will but what changed between two thousand eighteen twenty twenty. Because i think a little bit with race. There's a bit of her opponent. Didn't see your coming. You know it was mine too but how did he not see you coming. You were literally there to your. Because so i think the statement that he made in an article. I believe he was asked. What do you see being the outcome. Or something like that Of this race this next race with her running against you again and it was. Oh i expect the same come so it was just like oh. She doesn't have money she. You know all of those things and then not having you know. I did have the big endorsements from unions and all of that and i just it was just straight ground level So i think that was part of it. Plus just the idea that i'm a progressive in everybody. People kept saying that you won't get a progressive out of missouri out of the mid west. You just won't but especially missouri and so that whole thing but that changed but also for twenty twenty everything that i have been talking about chris. Leading up to twenty twenty like over the last few years prior is starting to show up so when the pandemic hit when kobe. Nineteen hit people started to say. Oh you know what are you talking about. Not having jobs that is connected to healthcare for all of these years and we didn't understand like we we just kinda thought you was.

"When you're in your home and an intruder comes in you have the right to self-defense. But less think. About the case of kathryn johnston who was the ninety two year old black grandmother here atlanta and she hears her burglar bars being removed in the middle of the night and so she grabs her rusty revolver to defend herself because somebody's coming into her house and asked the door breaches open she fires and then a fuselage of bullets hit her. It was the cops and and they said well she fired first so it was justifiable. Now they didn't announce themselves they were there on a on a no knock warrant the same kind of warrant that got brianna taylor kill exactly and you think about the language with brianna taylor again. Somebody banging on the door and she's hollering. Who is it. who is it not getting on response. And all of the officers have their camcorders off her boyfriend. Kenneth walker gets his licensed gun to defend that house to defend where they live to defend that castle and win that door bangs open. He shoots and over thirty bullets into that apartment and five of them. Plus a projectile hit taylor in killed her and the ag says he shot. I this was justifiable. I mean that's what happens and that's what we have to pay attention to the role of anti blackness in this society in this narrative of thug defying black people in criminalizing kirk blah black people. It's seeing black people the threat so you also think about that. Insurrection on january. Six juxtaposed that with the early your black lives matter march and the massive deployment of federal officers are heavily armed. Full riot gear for a peaceful protest march juxtaposed to white storming. The capital hollering wears. See in hang. Mike pence basically with their hit list of the government officials that they're going to kill to stop the certification of the electoral college votes. To overturn a free and fair election. But we know if black folks stormed that capital. It would've been a slaughter. I think another piece of this is is really hard to reconcile. Is that in the context of the conversation about gun regulation and addressing the mass shootings of this country. Struggles with there is conversation about gun. Laws that make sense. Laws that are not backed. Unopposed the nra. But you know what i found. Is that those gun laws. Also disproportionately incarcerate black people. So you know just one. Statistic is two thousand eighteen. Fifty six percent of those convicted of federal firearms violations. Were black and ninety. Six percent were men in the context of trying to figure out how to regulate how to have the discussion about what we do about mass shootings and the problems around guns. What is the solution. If every solution seems inherently tinged with racism. I firmly believe that after all of these mass shootings you think about sandy hook right and you think about pulse and you think about sutherland. Texas and las vegas. What stops this nation from being able to have viable god's safety loss and i really believe it is the power of anti blackness. It is the same thing that you heard. Patrick henry saying and george mason. In seventeen eighty eight. We will be left defenceless. If you take away our guns the black folks will come up and they will kill us.

"Issue of police violence and with cases. Like george floyd brianna taylor who were murdered at the hands of police. But we're also experiencing horrible modern day. Lynchings which is exactly what happened to ahmad. Aubrey not only are we experiencing racial injustice and police violence and the continued threat of other forms of racism and bigotry. Be it the the new wave of white women and white people calling the police on black people and being caught doing so on cell phones that we are you know videos. We're posting all over the place so not only a black folk dealing with that. But african americans have been walloped by the corona virus pandemic. I know every single funeral. And eulogy. That i oversaw over. The past few months was from a black family who lost their mothers fathers sons daughters grandparents. Aunts uncles cousins best friends classmates. No community has been hit harder by the corona virus pandemic then the black community and it has in certain cities including throughout new york and detroit and new orleans and throughout the deep south now No community has been consistently hit harder. We're now nearing one hundred. Forty thousand lives lost and tens of thousands of those lives are from black families who lost their most cherished loved ones and on top of that african americans are dealing now with record-setting unemployment as nearly forty million jobs over forty million jobs now have been lost again. Disproportionate of the number of african americans who've lost their jobs as disproportionate to the population and on top of that african americans who have not lost their jobs are often essential workers who are forced to provide for their families by literally going to work in the face of the pandemic each and every single day not able again Compared to white americans black americans have not had the privilege of working from home at anywhere near the rate of their white counterparts and so throughout the entire pandemic black folk have been on the front lines at hospitals not only doctors and nurses but custodians of front desk security workers and everything in between the same is true for postal workers for grocery workers in every other profession. You could think of. And in dealing with the racial injustice of cases like ahmad. Oprea the police violence. From brianna. Taylor george floyd and so many other names cases and the fallout from the corona virus pandemic and unemployment and and on top of that violence in our own communities that that is taking the lives of children. You may have seen at one year. Old child was shot. And killed in. Brooklyn where i live a one year old baby and all of that is so overwhelming and this is the best illustration i have. Can you imagine. I'm asking you the listener specifically imagine you are in your house and it is literally on fire. Imagine the fire is a a raging inferno in it is ripping through your house and imagine your loved ones still in the house. Never mind your your treasures and possessions but your loved ones are still there. Imagine being asked to care about almost anything other than that. Imagine if your house is on fire in you are in the house and your loved ones are in the house spread all over and it looks like you might not even get out. Imagine somebody asking you in that moment to care about homelessness to care about cancer to care about anything to care about the environment in that moment when your house is literally burning down all around you please understand that our capacity right now to care deeply about anything and anybody else is overwhelmed. Listen i am all for being intersectional. I'm all for us carrying. And i care deeply about all people in all the struggles in issues and forms of bigotry and racism and discrimination issues of the environment issues of poverty issues of health care. I care deeply about all of that but there are moments. Imagine you're having a heart attack enduring your heart attack. Somebody puts a mike in front of your face while you're suffering to your heart attack and ask you to care about Refugees somewhere in the world of course refugees like really that issue matters but imagine you being asked to care about it in the middle of your heart attack. And i say that to say that some people are gifted and skilled at finding ways to care about multiple causes and communities even when their houses on fire and god bless those people. I don't say that. Facetiously i mean it.

Had redefining critical race theory in 1994 as a collection a critical stances against the existing legal order from a race based victimhood point of view, who is Dr El Doctor Roy L. Brooks. Dr Brooks. Is a very close political confidant. One broke Hussein Obama. No, I'm not disrespecting Barack Obama. I'm not disrespecting his wife, Michelle Obama not disrespecting. Dr Roy L. Brooks. But I have a problem. With this critical race theory. Because within the skin mathematical structure of this demonic Sire. That is going to teach Children, especially white Children. They're all white people, all evil and that white supremacy must be destroyed, which, in reality white supremacy does not exist now is is there systemic racism? In America in certain pockets. Yes, I'm not naive to believe the fact that racism does not exists, but it exists on all sides. Okay, So this critical race Terry must be examined. And every time we're about ready to expose demons, his sirens, okay. That's deep. Say, listen. So then the critical race theory that I really want you and I to concentrate on Is this cancer that's being pushed down into the throats of American Children. Every governor in America must have the testicular fortitude to stand up and to say what needs to be said. And say no to critical race theory. Now. A few days ago, the creator of the 16 19 project Professor. By the name of doctor Nicola Hannah Jones. Now the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Had resend it their offer to Dr Nicola Hannah Jones. Of offering her a tenured position as professor. For those of you college and university students you should know. And those of you who are lecturers and associate professors at any college and university here in the United States and around the world. The term continued represents that man or woman has a job for a lifetime as a professor. So Dr Nicola Hannah Jones. Member of the bully Sick of society, which is the black equivalent of Yale University, skulls and bones. Who is also a Prince Hall, Mason. Just sign a five year contract. To remain at UNC Chapel Hill. But was turned down. By the board of Governors there and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and rightfully so. She's trying to push not just a critical race theory, as designed by Karl Marx and Frederick Angles in the 18 48 Communist Manifesto. Which is now being perfected by A Barack Obama confidante, Dr Roy L. Brooks. Professor at Harvard University. Knock dumped in Nicola Jones is trying to push The 16 19 project now The 16 19 project. It represents that in August of 16 19, a ship appeared a slave ship. I'm very on the horizon near Point comfort. Which is a coastal port in the English colony of the state of Virginia. Carried more than 20 enslaved Africans who were sold to the colonists. No aspect of the country that would be formed here has been untouched by the years of slavery that followed. This is, according to The New York Times on the 4/100 anniversary of this faith for moment, it is finally time to tell our story. Through the lens of truth. Okay, listen. Did slavery happened? Yes. Was It wasn't a Holocaust? Yes. Where over 100 indigenous Africans were stolen from their land history, stolen and destroyed, language stolen and destroyed. No one is debating the fact that The transatlantic slave trade. Is a great staying upon our republic. Is the original sin of America without question. But it is time for Black America to move on. No one owes us a penny. And we're living in a generation. Of a victimhood psychology. When you got race pits. Like Reverend, our vitamin B Deficient Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan Benjamin Crop. Every time there is a case of a young black kid. Getting shot by a white cop, and we don't know. No. Can we ascertain what happened between the cop in the kid? You're not told that by the media. Here comes Benjamin Crump. So Benjamin Crump doesn't care about the family of Brianna Taylor.

The framework of fascism, the framework of socialism. And Leninism. And Maoism. Is based upon Destroying one race of people in order to give victimhood status to another group of people that is wrong. Every governor in our country must stand up and have the testicular fortitude to say critical race theory would not be taught. In our colleges or universities or high school or middle schools, nor At the elementary school level and critical race theory would not be taught. At the local, county or state or federal level.

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.

Also tonight, Alex Trebek is doing his last episode of Jeopardy. That's kind of big story. It's one of the highest rated shows in the history of television, and when the longest running game shows in in history also, so that is tonight just to let you know the last taped Alex Trebek show runs tonight. There's a lot to get to a lot of stuff going on Lance McGarvey. Congratulations. He is the new voice of your University of Louisville fighting cardinals. He will join the show later this week. A swell but right now, paternal order of police President Ryan Nichols joins the show. Good morning ride. How are you? Good morning, sir. I'm doing well, Thanks. How about you doing great doing? Great. Listen, we wanted to have you on because well, number one. We like checking in with the fraternal order of police periodically, but we also wanted to check in and take your temperature on this new chief. I had some questions one the first things out of Mary Fisher's grounded while introducing her. Was that she was a progressive chief. I don't know what that means again. I don't care if you're black, white, yellow green. What You do what your hobbies are? I wanna know. Will you enforce the law or not? But specifically, what does the F o p. What's your temperature on this with the men and women of l m p d that you know of. Well, I agree with some of those statements there, sir. And the F O p You know the comments that were made in that press conference. It Shut officers down the rank and file officers who are have been working under tremendously stressful situations for an extended period of time here in our community. Um, you know, had had high hopes for a new chief coming in. And to have that initial press conference come out the way. Itwas um you know, just demoralized them, or our morale is extremely low in this department. And I think, uh, cheap. Shields missed an opportunity to publicly address the officers and and give them um, some Come inside into her message and her intent on leading this department. And she missed that opportunity. She did try toe. You know, acknowledge some of her her statements. I'm not a full apology, so to speak, but she did acknowledge that so we recognize that Right? We, uh when she was we listened. We obviously aired our entire Press conference. Dwight Night, We're staring at each other in disbelief. Of basically what was coming out of what she was saying. We could not believe that this was her first impression to the rank and file. We could not believe it. We were in shock. My question to you is first of all. I don't think that you're alone here. I think pretty much the entire city. When Look when you try to please one segment of the city. Everyone ends up hating you. That's just a bottom line, hire the best person for the job. And maybe she'll turn out that way. Just having he had a good start. My question to you is because I don't know the process. Or what happens inside internally. Is there a person between Who represents the police, and then their wants and needs when it comes to the higher ups. Is that a person that has a job or is that exist? I'm sure it does correct. Probably a chief. Well, a zee. Far as you know, the chief on our department. They're gonna have their command staff and You've heard us of the F O P. Say for quite some time pretty much during the mayor's entire administration that we've lacked strong, accountable leadership with the upper levels in this department. And we want that to change. We need that to change. We need someone who can lead this department through these extremely difficult times. Men relationships and, um, maybe build somewhere they don't even exist. Yet with the community and with the officers, the officers need to be able to get behind the message of the new chief's gonna bring in. And as far as what we've experienced here on Ellen PD with previous command staff CIT's They don't have that person that you're talking about that liaison. That deals and communicates clearly with the rank and file officers. That communication is extremely key. And then the profession you gentlemen are in You know what you say is extremely important. How you say it and how it's received those air all critical things. And we think that was very, very poorly done yesterday. Now, Ryan, no matter what your profession is, you want to feel like your superiors. Your boss has your back. If I was an officer, I would understand if I screw up. I expect to be prosecuted. I want bad officers rooted out. However, if if I make a tough decision and the facts support me, I want my boss to back me up. I was disturbed. When she wanted to back the officer in the brook shooting in Atlanta, at least not fire him so quickly wait for the facts to come out and under pressure. Instead of backing the officer and her opinion, she resigned. I would be worried about that. Almost definitely, um, you know those I believe she's Said. Perhaps he did. She resigned at that point in time to not be a distraction, and that's not what you want A strong leader to do. You need to lead your agency through those extremely difficult time. Yes, you shouldn't be a distraction. You should be a strong leader and we need that here and saying things and then doing things are very different so you can come out and say That You know you will support the actions taken in good faith. To protect yourself. Another officer's, But then when you do things that are different Your performance. You know, that's what you're going to be judged by. She's gonna have a certain level of respect coming in here just as the chief so the respect that comes along with that position and rank Being completely moved to this agency. She's gonna have to work extremely hard to gain the trust and respect of the officers for the person she is. Speaking with Ryan Nichols, he's the F O P president here in a little What? I wanna ask you a question we did. We've done the story in several variations, but the same theme several times on this show. There was a study done where people are happier in their job. If they're satisfied with their working environment. Maura than money, meaning they'd rather be happier in their job. Then have the money now outside looking in at the men and women of El MPD here and Louisville. I think that for the past well for quite some time, they've had neither. They're extremely underpaid..
