"brianna taylor" Discussed on WHAS 840 AM
"Would expect. If you don't have it in Jefferson County. I'm not quite sure where you go. Um Judge Smith said yesterday that she feels like we'll try toe get a jury impaneled here. And if that doesn't work could always move the trial. I do think there may be some Some hope for this because this is really not, as you pointed out in your newscast will. This is really not about Rianna Taylor. This is about it is certainly related to Brianna Taylor, and there's no There's no question about that. But we're talking about charges that the officer is facing a about Some of the shots that he fired and wanton endangerment of others. Not not just Briana Taylor, so I know this is every time there's a high profile trial. You really do face these questions, and you know it becomes more and more difficult as there are so many media outlets and everything is covered all the time. But there's also a fair number of people who just Seemed to tune out and they just don't They don't pay attention to this. Those of us who were in this business. I mean, we you know, were steeped in all these news stories and stuff. There's a lot of people who pay Zero attention to this, so I don't know It will be a challenge. But if you don't have it in Jefferson County, I'm not sure it's gonna be a whole lot different throughout the rest of the state. I think if you were going to find a A jury pool that maybe hasn't heard. Have been just completely inundated, saturated with coverage of it. You'd have to probably go. Somewhere like Paducah, Far western Kentucky. On D. It's not to say that the people of western Kentucky are aren't informed and don't get news or information. It's just Um, over there. They they've got other priorities. They have other things that they follow. I I I suspect that it was in the news over there because The Briana Taylor stories is a is a big deal. It's significant. It's it's been picked up by national and international outlets. Um, but I think over there you would find probably more people who Hadn't heard about it or had heard. So little about at least that particular aspect of the case. That they could probably find a jury that would be Uh, Agreeable to both sides. Um, I still think you could probably pull that off in Jefferson County, too. I may take you two or three weeks. I kind of like what we saw with the Shoving case in Minneapolis. You're certainly not going to see the jury in two or three hours, take a lunch break and come back for opening arguments. So wherever it is, it's not going to be a quick process. It's going to take some time to find Jury that both sides can And I say, agree it's probably anymore, they tolerate situation..

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.

Reform issues. We have state's attorney I-I've brave boy from Maryland in Kentucky State representative. Avocado. Scott in true fashion I we have to start with having you tell us what you're you into politics and we'll start with you state's attorney. Well, that's a great question. Actually I, had no intentions in getting into politics really it was my father who want to work on a campaign. He knows sometimes you have the your parents even as adults. That's. Asked. Me I was going to be a lawyer told him down and. Then, he told me I think I like you to work on his campaign I. Think you need to get politically as like now they're not. WanNa do that. But that the person who? Wanted. To work for happen to have graduate from the same law school that I will. The Howard University School of law. I'm did okay. Another in help bison out. Ever since V. I love how Howard alums Y'all always get an issue it can do no. Just regular conversation. How are you today? Oh I went to Howard. Thank you. Scott. Tell us whether you into politics. Definitely, you know state's attorney brave boy our fathers I mean you know it's their fault. So. I was born in. My Dad gave me my name Attica I'm named after the prison in upstate New York born a few months after the uprisings there in. So I didn't have a choice Ashanti really didn't in. So early on I got involved in a right out of college classmates run for city also in Knoxville Tennessee because I went away to ABC you is well, it's our on his campaign and then my full time job was at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and director was a county commissioner who became the first woman mayor of Maciel Tennessee and I came back home and I was involved with organized Labor at jobs with justice in ended up having. To me that I needed to run for office in. So because my friends mostly black and Brown women encouraged me to run for office. That's how I. Got Involved I love it in Y'all Attica is my emerge sister she went through emerged Kentucky and I remember the first time. I. Got to email her for something and I was so excited because I finally get to work with Atacan. Something is your pie vaccine my email she said, hey, queen and I almost died unlike y'all Attica call me queen because that's the way I, feel about her so you are just so fabulous and I wanNA start with having. US. Talk about retailers case because I think there's so much here particularly with you wrap Scott you just had an op Ed in the Washington Post after the verdict you are out protesting with your daughter named Ashanti another reason why Atacan I are meant to be best friends and you were arrested in. You've been dealing with the aftermath of that. You've sponsored Brianna Law for Kentucky. You're the only black woman currently in the Kentucky State House. So let's let's dissect this case in state's attorney boy I. Know You have a lot to add is the fact that there were no knock warrants how they handle just paperwork body cameras the grand jury I know that something that has really piece Pete People's interests about this grand jury in Oh what does this attorney general deal? So Rep Scott First let's talk about your op-ed why you felt you had to write it in a cave really personal place you said, this is personal to me. Sean in and I'm on this podcast with Queens. Come on State Attorney Ray boy This is power in so. Yes I happy that Opportunity Washington Post invited me to write a piece just from the perspective whatever that was on things going on here in Louisville Kentucky, and so that's exactly what I did I poured my heart into it as a mother of two black children. Masan is the same age as Taylor Madonna's nineteen. She wanted to be an emt in them. Brianna Taylor was murdered and she said to me Ma that didn't protect her from police violence I'm not sure this. So this is really pulling on us in shanty the people relieving leading the Front Lines here in Louisville for justice for Taylor are mostly women is so we're feeling this heavily. So yes, we've back to now to grandeur WANNA speak out. So that says to me that the Attorney General for Kentucky was so inept that in such a failure that you have rand jurors who want the right to speak out to say, he did not give us all of the options in front of us. There was no one there to speak for Briana Taylor in that this whole process was a sham that's where we all right now that says something about the continued. Kushner justice for Taylor in that's why we won't give up and that's why this movement is sustained
Why we must all stand against police brutality in Nigeria
"Before we fully dive into today's episode. Let me first. Say to all of the protesters and demonstrators and everybody who was working hard to fight back against police violence in. Nigeria, from those of you who donate for those of you who might be listening to this on instagram or I tunes or spotify wherever you are in the world let me first say a from my mouth to your ears that we are standing in solidarity with you. We believe in you we're grateful for your for your courage and bravery in the face of state sanctioned violence and I wanNA start there because I'm not. Nigerian. I'm not in Nigeria and I only have the perspective of an outsider here. When I have often heard other people from other countries, speak about police violence in the United States. It has often been painfully clear to me that sometimes. You truly have to be in a place to understand the complexity and nuance of it, and for instance, when George Floyd was murdered an and people all over the world almost twenty million people saw that video just from my social media accounts alone. People, just struggled. To understand how people from. Of the United. States in particular struggled to understand how something like that was possible. Well in the United States where we have a painful history of lynching. Where black men in particular are killed in broad daylight in front of everybody where where people serve as judge jury and executioner, and we've seen these images, our whole lives, we know the bloody history of lynching in this country. For us when we saw we were are are conscious in our heart and soul they were shocked in disturbed. But. For us, it was just a part of of how this country works. But. For people around the world, it was like hold on what? Or. When people saw the video of white men literally chasing down, Aubrey? And Shooting and killing him these men were were racist white supremacist dislike hold on. People are being chased in murdered. Wire. People breaking into the home of Brianna Taylor shooting and killing her and people around the world have tried as outsiders to understand the unique pain what it means to be black in America. And now we as Americans in end from side of the continent of Africa but particularly outside of Nigeria. We are seeing the crisis of police violence explode and what we don't understand is. How long has this been going on? What did this feel like last month last year ten years ago what is the history and legacy in context for it and so for many of us who like I? Have always followed African news closely and try to try to watch the major breaking news from throughout the continent the best that I can. It's it's certainly hard to do that from American news sources but try to follow at least the big stories the best I can for a lot of US including myself. The protest and demonstrations against police violence. Seemingly came out of nowhere. And what I know is that they never come out of nowhere I know that that's not actually how it happened. It's just the media coverage. Finally. Boiled over to the point in the protests and demonstrations against this police violence grew so much that it finally broke through into the news cycle that if finally trended across social media. And the Hashtag in SARS. Was Everywhere on all of my time lines in all of my direct messages and I'll be frank. It took me. A few days to even understand what people were were saying when they said in. SARS because here in the United States. When we're in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic for those of you who may be listening around the world, this pandemic has ravaged our country with nearly two hundred and twenty five thousand people dead nearly eight million people now have contracted the corona here and in this pandemic, the word. SARS for us is also a word frequently used with a type of flu here. and. So when I first started seeing in some ours. I thought that the. Flu had caught on somewhere else not I'm not joking that's literally what my mind process when I first saw it. and. It took me a couple of days to understand that end SARS. This was early last week probably ten days ago or so that end SARS had anything to do with police brutality, took me a forty eight hours or so to understand what it was really

What we're finding is Either. Brianna Taylor was an idiot. And she did not know that her boyfriend was a drug dealer using ah, dealing drugs out of her apartment, okay? Or she knew. And she continued to allow herself to be put in that situation. You're living with a drug dealer. Not a safe environment to put yourself into. Alright, that's really bad judgment. So I don't know what she knew. I'm just simply saying. The investigation has shown that he was a drug dealer that he was a known drug dealer by by cops that it was a well known address for it was a well known address and that he had a gun, and he shot at the officers and hit one of the officers. And they had to return fire. They were they were absolutely exonerated in their use of force against Ah, Briana Taylor and the boyfriend. She was caught in the crossfire. However, it's odd. I'm scratching my head. Why would they? Why was one officer charged for reckless endangerment of the Of the neighbors because because the bullet went through and didn't hit them, But I could have hit them. I'm scratching my head like did you have to did you? Or were you searching for something to charge him with? I'd love to see people's thoughts on that one, because I don't know what else was the officer supposed to do? He was being shot at so you returned fire. All right. We'll take a quick break.

"Listen back to this morning's program about Brianna Taylor in the visibility of black women victims of police brutality that's the form rebroadcast tonight at ten this is KQ weedy this is fresh AIR let's get back to fresh AIR contributor Dave Davies and this twenty eighteen interview with journalist Howard Bryant his book the heritage is about the history of African American athletes and their public reactions to issues of social justice when we left off they were talking about the tradition of black athletes speaking out Brian talked about a post nine eleven era when sports became militarized and nationalized and what happened when those attitudes towards patriotism collided with the post Ferguson black athlete and when Colin Kaepernick took a knee in twenty sixteen I mean separate he was certainly not the first one to join the protests against police shootings lebron James had made a statement I think was at an ESPN awards banquet right now at the time but we got a lot of the time element in a and and yeah right what was different about Colin Kaepernick I mean well I think the first thing that was different about having neck was the gesture itself the players had spoken before can you had the hands up don't shoot gesture you had Derrick rose in the lebron James wearing I can't breathe T. shirts at the Minnesota lynx the women's basketball team in the W. N. B. A. doing the same thing but the fact that Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem that changed everything and and what it did was it got people's attention which is what protest is supposed to do but what it also did was it exposed the gap between how African Americans reviewing what was taking place in the climate and how the mainstream media and how and how teams reviewing it and now it was forcing it was forcing teams into a collision with what they were selling at the ballpark in terms of flags and flyovers in militarization and how these African American players were feeling about what was happening in the community so it was to give the gesture brought these two seemingly disparaged trains together in it brought them together at the ballpark which is another interesting sort of twist to it because the ball park is the place where everyone supposed to get along it's the toy department and sports are supposed to be fun and suddenly sports became the most politicized place in America right now some owners of I was gonna say in any other part of that too is then you add Donald Trump into it and who recognized very quickly that this was a political piece that he could he could exploit for his base and you saw what he did in terms of questioning the player citizenship and questioning whether or not players belonged in the country and and questioning whether or not players is appropriate for players to protest at all obviously when he called them SO Beason twenty seventeen and in September and so they should be fired right didn't help matters in hand exactly right and that they should not even be employed this is explosive powerful undemocratic territory actually suggesting that a citizen and that an employee loses job you take away their employment for disagreeing with something that's taking place in United States and I wrote in the in the book and I just read a quick paragraph to you about how I felt about this I said that trump position dissenting views as unpatriotic at best traitorous at worst both to the United States in general and the comic and the country's armed forces in particular black players such as Colin Kaepernick enjoyed wide support for military members and nationwide black police organizations we're committed to a racket in police brutality but it didn't matter sports if not completely nonpartisan but famously ambivalent to overt political messages was sending its own message through its fans media broadcast partners teams and leagues the American flag did not represent ideals it was supposed to be obeyed and so that's the energy that trump brought to this issue as we've seen ever since the start of his presidency he's used to the players as a wedge between being patriotic and unpatriotic and in a lot of ways it follows a template when it comes to dealing with with African Americans during electoral years once it did I've been saying the other day it it feels like you've gone from welfare queens to Willie Horton and al ball players you know if you take the long view of African American athletes you can go back to an era when they were so out right segregation black for than in it admitted into the league's more are now in coaching staffs some in the front office I think a couple in minority ownership positions do you see a through line of progress and all this are we over the long run moving in a positive direction no we're not and the reason that we're not as because that through line is essentially a math the way that you view sports and it has been this way for years is white owners white coaches white season ticket owners white media black player that is the filter this is how sports is run there is one owner in professional sports who is African American and it's Michael Jordan with the Charlotte Hornets he's the only black owner and that's a sport with an eighty percent black work force the NFL is a seventy percent black work force and yet these players are being muscled into not having political opinions when you look at media media has focused not on the filter of the black athlete in terms of their protest but through their own filter which is through police and through the flag so the player isn't even able to play your spends so much time being frustrated that this is not what their protest is about they can't even explain themselves in a way and that's because the predominately white media does not want to relinquish control of this narrative if they actually listened if it actually listen to the player will be having a very different conversation about these protests and so to say that there's progress is to suggest that some of these are any of these components are changing actually they're not in in baseball front office front office opportunities are becoming less and less possible for African Americans the numbers are actually shrinking they're going away and so it feels like we're going backwards in a lot of ways one of the main issues of this book is the question of black body over black brain the reason why we talk about players is because players were supposed to be this pipeline to education they were supposed to be the pipeline to a better America for the African American player but what you have instead if you have really rich African American athletes a very small percentage of them who have made it can a lot of other players in a lot of other people who haven't and the response to those players the lebron James is and the Dwayne wades in the skin the Colin Kaepernick who actually have made their response to them has been shut up and play shut up and dribble that doesn't sound like progress to me hi Brian thanks so much for speaking with us no my pleasure thank you Howard Bryant speaking to fresh air contributor Dave Davies in twenty eighteen his book from that same year the heritage is about the history of African American athletes and their public reactions to issues of social justice his latest book also focused on sports and racism and injustice was published in January it's called full dissidents notes from an uneven playing field on Monday show Terry's
