Rep. Ralph Norman: This Biden Admin Has Sold Out

"This is all code code language congressman. This is all about eradicating our culture and our history. And using tax dollars to do it. Yes, I totally disregard for the taxpayers and Todd. I mean, what about the tree study? I think it was in Minneapolis where they had the racism that existed in three Canopy coverage. What about the EV initials to the EPA that you did in Charlotte, North Carolina? So that the public could hook up volumes of literature and read online to study the climate change. I mean, it would be laughable if it wasn't so serious. And it's hard money. You can't get this money back. No, and that's what irritates me as a physical conservative. This is just squandering our tax money. We don't have a lot, aside from the billions of dollars that we're sending to the Ukrainians to help them defend their border. And I know if you're hearing this from your constituents, but the latest report what $1.7 billion in additional funding we're sending over there to help pay for their gasoline for healthcare workers. What about the American people and their gas bills? Well, just buying administration is sold out. I mean, he sold out to China. Look what he's doing with this strategic goal. A million barrels a day has been shipped out. China's been one of the beneficiaries. But when you talk about the 1.9 trillion funding, it was 2700 pages long. No one read it. It doesn't go through regular order where you have debate and have amendments and like you normally would. So it's a train wreck. And the good news is I think the public is aware of it. I would guess it now. And the getting hit at every different

Senator Ron Johnson Is in a Very Expensive Re-Election Campaign

"We spend a fair amount of time talking about how Republicans don't do much of anything useful, but there is one exception that there's a few exceptions, but there's one senator that has just been so courageous and really ahead of his time on almost every single issue, and he is in a tough reelection fight. In the great state of Wisconsin right now, over $37 million have already been spent against him, and I have a feeling that they're going to find every single way to place more ads against the wonderful and the courageous senator from Wisconsin, senator Ron Johnson who joins us right now, senator, welcome back to the program. Well, Charlie, I think it's over 39 million now, but to who's quibbling with the exact details, huh? Now these are inflated dollars, senators. So it would be something like 20 million, maybe a couple election cycles ago. But let's start with that. Who's spending that money? I mean, that's an extraordinary figure for a Senate race in Wisconsin. That's on pace to maybe be a $100 million race. I mean, the establishment must be trying to take you out and left wing interests who's spending all this money. That's what Democrats would call dark money, which they just hate until they want to use it to destroy somebody. And they're very good at the politics of personal destruction. So it's all the outside groups are coming in here and I don't even have an opponent. That's except I have the worst support in Charlotte. I've got the mainstream media that's been trying to take me out for at least 18 months. So again, it's dark money. It's the groups that they believe this should be their Democrat Senate seat. They want it so they can limit the filibuster. They can continue us down this road to socialism.

Arm the Teachers!

"The audacity of people to say teachers should be armed. There are already trying to teach and be babysitters and be counselors and all sorts of things and you want them now to be sharpshooters and I mean having a teacher, or are they supposed to holster the weapon and have it on safety and have it ready to go at all times? I mean, what are they supposed to do? And I think they should maybe have big rifles that have on their shoulder as they're running on the blackboard so that it's very clear to the kids that they live in an atmosphere of total violence and unpredictability. I mean, that is one of the craziest ideas I have ever heard around the school shooting stuff. And we can't. My mother was a teacher. The idea of Charlotte with a side arm is so bizarre.

Arthur Milikh Offers Analysis of the Current Political Landscape

"Who is the executive director at the center for the American way of life at the Claremont institute, Arthur, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thank you very much, Charlotte. So Arthur, we've been kind of framing the conversation, if you will, right now, around how a majority of the political discourse is around things that are patently insane. The woke, if you will. And that there needs to be kind of a re centering around team reality, and that only conservatives can help make that consolidation possible. What are your thoughts? Well, I think that's true. But, you know, when you look at some of the polling, some of which is honest, I suspect, and you see that there's actually strikingly little support for a lot of these very radical left wing ideologies. And then you wonder, well, how on earth is it that these remain the center conversations of the nation, if they're so little public support? And then you begin to think through how much money and institutional support there is for these causes. And the immense disproportion in power. On the left versus the right. And then you start seeing how many conservatives over the last generation have been snoozing at the wheel. They've been fighting on some very irrelevant issues, one kind of trick that I like to think about is if you implemented the full agenda of many of the think tanks on the mainstream right. Nothing would change about America. A lot of things. It would all be a total domination of the left institutions. And so what we have not thought through is trying to win back territory in real ways. Trying to repeal the immense power of those institutions. We like to do lawsuits. That's fine. But when we lose in the courts, we just say, oh shucks, you know, we'll try again. We'll try to do the same thing again. Whereas when you look at the immense as I keep saying institutional power of the left, they own the universities, which we refuse to defund. They own a lot of K12. These are American tax dollars that are being used against patriotic Americans. It's an astonishing thing. And nobody ever really does anything about it. It's a really interesting

Making the Case for Heaven with Lee Strobel

"A few books out there that really change your life and change the way you view things. And I remember where I was when I first heard about this book and then I saw the movie and I just give it out to everyone that has questions about the Bible and about their place in the world and the author really his story resonated with me because we're both from the same place the suburbs of Chicago and the book is the case for Christ that's phenomenal and then there was kind of a sequel book, the case for heaven, which is now coming out as a movie. So I'm super thrilled and honored to have with us the author and kind of the mastermind behind it all. Lee's struggle. Lee, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Oh, thanks so much, Charlotte. I appreciate the opportunity. I didn't know you were from suburban Chicago. Where'd you grow up? Wheeling and went to willow creek. Come on. And as well as harvest Bible chapel. So we kind of is from the same area. Oh my goodness, I grew up in Arlington Heights, went to prospect high school and I went to my house. So awesome. At the same time, the same type of place. So yeah, it's a great, great honor to lead. Tell us about the movie that's coming out. Well, it's based on my book, the case for heaven, which was inspired by an incident that happened to me ten years ago when I almost died. My wife found me unconscious, calling the ambulance. I woke up in the emergency room and the doctor looked down at me and said, one step away from a coma two steps away from dying. And so I there between life and death for quite a while so the doctors were able to save my life. And this is a very clarifying experience for me. When you get in that kind of position, you really want to know for sure what happens when you close your eyes for the last time in this world. And so I'm a Christian. I believe what the Bible teaches, but I've also got a skeptical gear. You know, my background's in journalism and law. So I tend to be a bit skeptical. So I decided to investigate what is the evidence both inside and outside the Bible that supports the idea that there is an afterlife that we continue to live on. Now that resulted in my book, the case for heaven and then we produced a documentary based on that book is going to be in movie theaters coast to coast for three nights only April 4th, 5th and 6th.

And so I think there's a trap sometimes authors feeling obligated to make their cover too literal to the story, so that's why now I kind of collaborate I used to have more hand in the cover design, but when you're writing the story, I think it can be really personal to what you want on there, and you can miss opportunities to really put a cover on there that that jumps out, so that was. Designed by Mike Cover designer in the second I saw it gave me the feeling that I wanted to capture in the book.

That's okay. We'll talk about later. We could actually talk about except she might hear well. That's good. I would only say good things so she can hear anything. We saw a little bit about you. Your first romance books republished a traditional publisher right and who was a random house? I've heard of that. Yeah what kind of books were those Those are hockey romance. So it's a five book series hockey players are romantic hockey. Players are extremely romantic. I can see. Maybe he'll women might find hockey players. Attractive I cannot see how hockey players are remaining house hockey. Puerto Romantic how are they not? I mean they are. I think they're everything that you know. A lot of romance readers are looking for. I mean they're athlete. So they have the ABC Zeno. The bodies they have the money they have the social standing You know I'm kidding with you a little bit because I grew up in the south and hockey. We don't know much about ice hockey. You can't just say hockey ice hockey okay. Well that's that's true. I think about that. Sometimes if I'd grown up in the north I mean I've always grown up anything with the ball. Any activity up probably played hockey. I saw where I so. You're you like hockey players. I do yeah they were my first heroes like good as a child as a teenager growing up and then still so you do this series with the Penguin Random House but then you decide you're going to go the independent route right. And what did you do that Because I wanted to make writing my career And unfortunately I wasn't making enough money off that series to make career and feed my kids so That's when I started doing independent publishing a needed more control over what I was doing because I'm also a little bit of a control freak like that so it was nice having the power to have control over. Everything from editing covers. What I was writing If I wanted to do a different series I could instead of just being a hockey romance writer. I've talked to a number of romance authors and I had another one of your friends on Jessica Peterson and She she did the same thing. She went traditional route but now she's independently publishing putting out a lot of books. You can't put out a lot of books year with a traditional publisher right. You just takes time and thanks. Get in the way. Y- you might not have the large platform in bookstores. But yet you've got this thing called the Internet right and the Internet is very powerful. No offense to bookstores. I loved them. I spent a lot of time there but the Internet is a very powerful. So you so most your books right absolutely digital Cowie's we might come back to that in the writer's life but let's let's get closer to you in the books that you're writing here. You're I guess you like Ice Hockey. Because you're from Detroit right. Yeah I can can be colder up there around here. Yeah and you got an English degree from Central Michigan University and then you moved to the warm climates rookie law. Yeah You know what it's actually kind of funny how I got here I was all set to move to Atlanta to be a flight attendant. The only thing I want to do after graduating And then I just got cold feet last minute and I called up Delta and I said I was not going there no more. Should I go so I close my eyes and I pointed to a map and it landed at Asheville in the year. Two thousand national didn't have a huge amount of jobs so I chose Charlotte and a month after graduating from central Michigan University. I moved here with all my stuff. You say you spend your days writing books and tweeting too much as I do I do. I like to tweet follow me. Tweeting in your romance books on their social media more instagram. So today on Valentine's Day were featuring your book centers but before we get under the covers together. Let's talk about your book cover. It's a again. We're on audio. But thus described this book cover for our listeners. Oh Yeah The book covers really It's a very good looking man with facial hair like subscribed five o'clock shadow maybe even ten o'clock And he's got a leather coat over his shoulder and tattoos on his back. And you can't see full Manchester these kinds of to the side. But he's just got this brooding look on his face Which Kinda sums up saints sums up the main characters chain around his neck and he's got something around his wrist. Some probably leather ambulatory Conran. His wrist and built that Was in his pants are kind of hanging low in the back their pants. But you know you said you call saints be looks a bit like a center. It goes back to that Oscar Wilde quote in front of the beginning and tell us about the little token on the front here. You got the circle from because this involves historical will period of time. We're going to talk about but you get the circle and the hockey stick right. Yes because again hockey players are always running through my head and actually What made me want to write? The story was Things that are happening in the early eighties late nineties. I'm during the fall of communism and the up of the Soviet Union. That's why the hockey stick. It was hockey players. Were defecting. So let's just flip to the back of the book second the back cover could before we get under the covers here but You've got a little teaser. Here on the back of what? She's read that teaser for quick. Yeah absolutely Moscow. Nineteen eighty nine. Food shelves are empty. Streets are lawless and I still have to make the biggest sacrifice of all when my twin brother defects from Moscow to play hockey in America. A ruthless Russian gang sets their sights on me as part of an extortion plot. The leader of a rival organization offers to keep me safe for a price in exchange for his protection. He wants my body and as badly as I want to say. No Body over. Life seems like a better deal but as I slipped deeper into his world and his affections he demands more from me now.

WHO has been sex traffic vic since she was thirteen? She was tricked into coming to America from Ukraine to model and she's locked in an abandoned building right now and she can hear. New Girl are all being broken in so to speak on the other side of the wall. Sophia pulled one earplug away from her ear. The new girls voice. Jason Grown raspy and weak. But she still sobbed and yelled out for help. That would never come God. She's a feisty one. She still doesn't get that. Her whole life has changed. Maybe it's hard for her to believe but the sooner she figures it out and toughens up the better off she'll be spent might pull out her back tooth breath cut off part of her toe. He knew little things that wouldn't show but hurt like bloody hell after he'd run out of tricks if the new girls still wouldn't cooperate operate or if she wasn't very pretty she drugged with meth or heroin and used up in the dark behind motel room door that opened and closed with a never never ending stream of customers that would be her miserable existence until she died of sickness or overdose. That's how it worked. The Motel. Girls never lasted very long. Thank God Sophia. Wasn't one of them. If she had been so beautiful she'd be home with her family right now complaining with her brothers. There's about their cramp cottage and too many chores but happier than she'd ever realized for a long time over a year. It had been just the three of them him her Anastacia and Sasha moving city to city never more than a week in the same location enduring shameful and perverted horrors behind closed bedroom doors but now it was only her in anesthesia. Perhaps the American was meant to replace Sasha Sophia squeezed her. I shut as she heard confused. Please and a final blood curdling scream the branding. Yep The new girl was here to say our Jennifer. That's hard to listen to you but you're You're you're working truth into the book because without Realism it. It just wouldn't. It wouldn't be the same right. Yes it's hard. It's a challenge to write a book about a very disturbing topic and and not make it unreadable. So I tried to handle it in a tasteful manner not certainly this sucks is implied but but it's never ever graphically portrayed None of my books even have swears percents. So it's extremely disturbing topic and yet it's my even still be. PG Thirteen perhaps so little Ryan life stuff here you. You've been riding quite a while now or I've been writing for nine years. When when did you first call call yourself an author Not until my first book was published and then it was very real very fast and very frightening and then I really tried to learn as much as you started out with the traditional published. Work is that right and then you shifted to independent publishing So why Indian. How does that work for you I love Indie publishing when I first started started. There's no way I could have done. It simply didn't know enough about what was involved but after I was published My publisher I said I had to do two things that I wasn't doing had to have a website and I had to have a social media presence and I had none so I took that to heart and really got involved evolved Mostly on facebook joining all sorts of author groups for publishing for marketing. I learned so much Just from information mation. That's freely available on. Just do this now. Not only because I thought I could and I wanted to but it just suits my personality better. I like being in control. I'm not very patient. There's so much waiting and so many things that are out of your control with a traditional publisher three different series. How do you keep the character straight? They are so real to me. They are as real as you know your mom your dad your so you know no matter. Yeah I mean you can get into their head and you're good writing process. You're treating this kind of like a business now. So what's your process. What's your routine well I I do everything else. Like Cleaner House walked away. I once that's done. I'm kind of just looking came forward to when I can sit down and write so it's every day for as much time as I can. So normally that's only two or three hours but I try not to ever skip skip a day and it's a mixture of of writing and marketing and editing for other people and Every day I'm doing something related to my writing career and you're also marketing every day right single day.

You're getting on board just in time so Brian this is a good message. it could really apply to writing as well don't don't get caught up in what other people are saying. You get your own voice. Tell your story right but podcasting is a medium that you know with a limited investment store. You can kind of try it out and if you if you enjoy doing it. It doesn't matter right right. I think we get caught up in whether you're writing or or how many download you got right. We get all caught up in numbers. And who's GONNA listen and will they like it. Don't worry about people somebody out. There needs to hear what you've got to say. And there's no better time than you know the president to make Mak- thing and create the something like this and build your own build your own. Little Empire Umpire Par Emperor Little Empire. Because AH someone out there whether you're talking about baseball or writing or current events or news or whatever you want something out there needs to hear what you've got to say they want to hear your taken it's not just podcasters listening to podcasters. It's there are to plenty of people out there. Who are who are consuming podcasts with zero interest in a podcast yes? That's true and sometimes podcast. Listen to podcasts.

"Prior works include the last fourteen squawks and countless legal, brief out, of course throughout the nation. Brad is not in the show this year because he has eleven year old trip voice and an eight year old. He likes to say the more Cajun, brow, electric. Thanks wife. Brazil for lowering the right to shear show and promises to stop laughing. When the boys, tell jokes, don't make any sense. The end with the word diarrhea. Hey, mike. How's welcome to the show? Thank you. This is Charlotte readers podcast me Charlotte. Squawks you're having a curse tonight. So you you've stepped out appreciate that added to go. The first part is the first music rehearsal with the band and sound, and it's always unmitigated disaster kind of tents and there. Well, no, it's not that just that everybody's finding we have, like, I don't know thirty five microphones and. A new sound system this year. And people are finding everybody is finding their way the same time. So my, my first question years, and television years in radio, you're the Charlotte radio, Gada BFA, you ask intelligent questions everyday, and then you come and do this. You know. The real. This is the true store years ago when this thing I went Charlotte squawks, I started it was a fundraiser for WTI. And it was for a retirement party for the general manager out there and Keith Martin who is a director and producer Charlotte time came to me. And he said, we'd like to do this comedy show skewering all things Charlotte, and we'd like to do a takeoff on the name of your radio show, Charlotte. Talks. Call Charlotte squawks would that the okay? I says you're what the heck and then they said we'd like you to front it. Oh. I said, yes, it was a three show thing. And I thought it's a one off and he promised, I would only be in one or two numbers. And I would welcome the audience and that well, I was in thirty five numbers fifteen years later. Yeah. Can't it's the show that will not die and I can't get out of it. And now I produce it and directed and so I'm kind of stuck. So how did you meet Bryan Bryan with my law partner from Brian, and I and several other people were asked to also help. Right, that very first show, but you're not the writer the lyrics now not now. No. Because Brian Brian has come if there's something wrong lyrics, it's all Brian, it's all his fault. Sometimes Brian will ask me to write a song that he stumped on. And I will I will sit down and spend four hours on a Saturday, writing the song. And then I'll send it to him. And he'll send it back fifteen minutes later and the only thing resembling my words are the words and, and the that's it. So he does it all does all the writing of the songs, I do the monologue and a couple of other things, and I direct the show coming to the show. For years. And you always throw in these little newsflashes, and you come out and sometimes the jokes work and. Sometimes they don't first of all. I never think anything in the show is funny, ever ever ever until until the hits on. I obviously have no sense of humor. So it's always a surprise to me a pleasant one at that, that the audience last, and yes, we get the newscast and the news, the newscasts change throughout the show topical, but the first night, we get them is denied of dress rehearsal. The last dress rehearsal before an audience, and Joanna who does the news with me, and I come out, and we just read these things coal. We've never seen before never seen him. And of course, there's nobody in the house to laugh, and we just read them, flat and they're not funny to us, and I say the grammars wrong in the sentence. Brian needs a comma or that you dispel that or that's not right. You got to change this. There's got to be some way for them to change clothes in this. That's right. And then the second night we come out as you said, some of the jokes work in some of. Don't in the ones that don't disappear. So do you enjoy? I mean making fun of the man. I mean it's sort of or you know, you do this, right. Let me ask this, what you just radio show and actually, went to your art of the interview the other day. And you don't get the chance to express your own opinions in this show I have. No, that's because you're still working for WFAN. Let's get back to that. I have no opinion. But you make fun of yourself to. Of course, we make fun of everybody and everything we try to it's we really do. Try to offend everybody at some point in the show. That's the fun of it. So I noticed that, you know, you saying you direct you've got a history that you've for years, you're involved in community theater, directing. So do you enjoy that more than your day job? Yeah. You know, I always thought that when I retired this is what I would do. And I was looked around when I was in my twenties thinking, we're all the old guys, the was held the cast an old person in a play and discriminate why. Because first of all, you wanna do stay home and sit on your deck, or watch television. Exactly. You can't remember the lines anymore. That's the problem. But in the last, I think, at the very end of this show, where you're doing the last part, there, sort of making fun of you. I think always Ryan always finds talk shows solo. No, not your talks. I'm just an old man. No body loves me. Yes, you're just an old man who eats at Appleby. Yes. I don't think I've ever eaten taking his and his vitamin c. So what this, this one is coming up. What are you excited about with the show here? I'm excited about. We're doing a number called on next door and it's based on a lame is song called one day more. I just heard it in your. Yeah. And that's very complicated and complex. And when you're on the stage if you're not standing directly next to somebody, you can't hear them. Yeah. So we're, we're, we're completely like blind men in the dark. We can't hear each other at all. But I'm told it sounds okay? Sound great. I wanted to clamp was watching look at your faces after done y'all look around. Was it any good? We can't hear each can't hurt you some. That's a good number. I think we're making fun of grocery stores. I think that, that's a fun, number two part of the program, I can never remember what the show's about Brian is ran off with it. But here here's the rundown. Gosh, let's see. He ran off with the program. Okay. Well, let's see just gonna look flip through this very quickly. What am I district? You get it all this out right district nine that's about the ninth district to redo and, and, and, and we're out of money. That's about the, the Greenway being seventy seven billion dollars short. We'll explain it to you show. We've been assigned we've been given the responsibility by the city council to explain it to the voters, what happened, and we will with the money. Yes, we will. So. So they just some of the things that we have a surprise number. For Mr. teper good that we're still working out here. It is, we will have when, as we are recording this. We are one week away from opening night and last night was the first time, we tried this number because no, we had to we have to we just got in some of the paraphernalia that we're using for the number. So. So you fifteen years in looking back. What are some of your memories favorite members? Remember any the care should say I love talking to the audience. We have a have a chance in this show to talk to the audience. One year. We had both ended the Oreo the county manager and at the time the mayor, Julia, not Yulia Roberts. Jennifer, Jennifer Roberts L. They look very similar. She would be flattered. We had him in the audience at the same time, there was something going on between the city and the county. So I had them debate, it I went back and forth, had the debate it live. And they were not expecting it. That's because the audience finds it fun you pull in the, the politicians for cameos. Yes. Sometimes that works. Sometimes it doesn't when, when. It was a good sport. Right. He was a great sport. I mean he would do anything we asked him to do and one that one year he did something any had an idea about how he wanted to do it. And I let him do it that way. And I took it to the video editor, who was, Pat mccrory fan, it, I'm not going to edit this until I hear from him that it's okay to do this, because this this'll kill him. I saw one where seven press conference and you walk in and interrupt him because he's just announced that the Republican national conventions coming to Charlotte right this when the Democrats game. Well now what was happening? You could play that clip now. And you'd be the one. He was just crying. Right. It was just several years too early. But he would do anything for us to think about so you keep doing it might you know that's not up to me. It's not up to a higher power. But you enjoy enjoy it's always frustrating, but it usually has paid off people like the show. It's a great cast of people. These are really fabulous. Individuals are great talents, and they're fun door a make you feel younger like you're back in high school in highschool pledge after a great show, y'all nailed it. Let's go get a beer as some of that, that goes on. No, none of that. Jaded. They pay us to hurt they do that. So they must not be inviting you. The director. And just you gotta go back so. Hey, mike. Thanks a lot predate. It man. Thank you. Thanks so broad. Con welcome to the show. Thanks for having me on. This is this is new for former law partners and Nella get interviewed. I don't know how to feel about this. Don't make this adept deposition. And tell him where we are right now. So we are in the lobby of the booth feeder, which during which the cast is doing its sits probe, which is I know. I know seriously. We're getting into theater stuff. The sits brogue is, is sort of the theater word for the first rehearsal with the band, o the sits proofs of somebody's sitting there's a lot of people sitting actually their cast is sitting on the stage. Everybody sits. I don't think that's the origin of the word. But it's, it's okay. Might my Mike you Brian. Yeah. Gaul from may it, please the court to kiss my. Say that on the pot. Put a little explicit tag. All right. Good. So, so I mean how and why? It's well, as you know, it's, it's sort of the repressed part of us lawyers that has to break out every once in a while. And, and say what we really think. Right. Yeah. But she, you know, this is not like riding Traub race. I mean you're putting lyrics to songs music and you're watching it up. Why do you do this? I'm messed up a momma sick puppy now. I you know, it's an for fifteen years, by the way. Yeah. Now, it's it's I mean, it's such a fantastic fun outlet, and I'm so blessed to have people in the community that thought you know, you know, let, let's let Brian have fun and do this because it's, it's a really kind of cool thing. And the reason why I really kinda got into it as I have a. I grew up doing musical theater, and cappella and all the really cool stuff. That kids do. Right. I would do. Would do Costa ASI you're doing like football. Exactly. Is there stuff can sing? So, but and then, you know as I went through law school, there was a show that made fun of professors called the Lytle show..

Not too far. From the battery one, oh, one Rutledge street was the scene of scandalous murder in the afternoon of March, the twelve eighteen eighty nine captain Dawson editor of the Charleston news and courier with shot and killed in the home of young doctor McDowell the testimony during the cessation trial that follows at Charleston buzzing with whispers of Victorian sex scandal, captain Francis. Warrington Dawson stormed into Dr McDowell's office that March afternoon threatening McDowell both his cane and his power in the community. Dawson was upset over the doctor's attentions to Dawson's. Young Swiss governess, the argument was mismatched. One Dawson was a distinguished confederate veteran and well known in Charleston, a large and imposing man make Dow short and slightly built was a newcomer and announce outer Mary to a. Wealthy German woman. According to McDowell Dawson's beating and berating left McDowell with no choice, but to pull his pistol and fire. It took more than an hour for Dawson to breathe. His last in a media confession may have kept this case from becoming one of Charleston's most talked about trials the doctor McDowell I tried to cover up his crime by burying Dawson's body in the sand beneath his outside stairway. When he had difficulty digging the hole deep enough, he thought better of his actions. He dragged the body from the whole tried the dust the sand from Dawson's hair and clothes, then three hours after the shooting. Mcdowell confessed policemen on the street. Ironically, another policeman who knew of captain Dawson's concerns about his governesses honor had received word that afternoon of a single pistol shot on Rutledge street. Fearing trouble. He went immediately to McDowell's door, but was told and nothing was wrong. At the time. Of course McDowell must have been locked in his ground-floor office with the dead or dying.

The jury deliberated only two hours when the jury declared McDowell not guilty the spectators cheered the debates over the surprise verdict finally died until a fee. Later when on a hot summer day, Dr McDowell's dead body was discovered in his home on Rutledge street.
