The Key Issues Involved in the Tyre Nichols Killing
"I'd like to offer some thoughts on the Tyree Nichols killing. Kyrie Nichols is a black guy lived in the area of Memphis and on January 7th of this year, he was in his car, according to police driving recklessly, although we haven't seen any video of that, the police nevertheless, and this part of it is on video, they pull them over and then they walk up to the car and yank him out of the car and tell him to get on the ground. He seems to be complying. He says, okay, okay, okay, man. And while he's on the ground, they tase him. They hit him with a taser at which point I think natural flight kicks in and he begins to run. So they chase him down and unbelievably. Beat him to death. So this is anyone who's seen the video, Debbie and I watched it. I watched, I'd watch one version of it yesterday I watched another version this morning. It's really hard to justify. In fact, David's reaction where she goes, well, this is worse than what Derek Chauvin did to George Floyd. This is inexcusable. However, the policeman, the four cops who did this, were black. There wasn't a white policeman involved at all. And so for the left, this has become a little bit of a problem. Obviously, it is a clear case. I think it's a clear case for anyone who sees the video. Of police brutality.
Caller: What Does Police Recruitment Look Like in the Future?
"Just to touch base on Tyrone Nichols that awful awful case attorney Nichols. Unfortunately, my fear is that these guys, they don't have much time on these officers. And I think one of the first text messages or maybe voicemails you played with a guy talked about recruitment and lowering standards. That's my fear that 20 years from now, Derek Chauvin and guys like this could be the best guy on your department because the Boy Scouts and girl scouts don't want to do this job anymore when people are calling for their heads or to defund them. Officer suicide rates are up. Alcoholism rates are up divorce rates are up and so it's a spiritual and a heart issue. I was struck when the mom called from Cincinnati and said my son, 18 years old, I'm always shocked at that because Dave, I keep wondering who wants to be a police officer considering what these men and women are up against. Right, right. And that is that is a scary thing. And so. You have to. You can't lower the standards. There's going to be a time where all police departments are short on staff right now. Right.
Caller: Will the Charges Stick Against All 5 Memphis Officers?
"Anyway, I was just wondering why you didn't put the rest of the what the prosecutor said when he was talking about the police officers. If you recall, he said that all 5 of them were going to be charged with that crime while all 5 of them didn't meet this guy. But there were the ones that were standing around. So they were complicit in his death. And if you go back in time and look at some of the other deaths that's been going around the country, there's a lot of complexity going around with the cops, and this is one of the reasons why people were talking about defund the police. You know, they're concerned about the cops that are so called good cops that are standing around and not doing their job. Right. Watching the buddies do their things, you know, getting a thing off and beating people, choking them out and whatnot. And the other cops not lifting a finger to do anything about it. Yep, I get that. Now here's the problem. Second degree murder is probably gonna, they're gonna have a hard time getting that to stick to all 5 of them. I agree. You know. I agree. But I agree. But it is, but it is, this goes back to the Derek Chauvin thing when he's got his knee on George Floyd's neck for 9 minutes or 12 minutes or however long it was. Nobody else did anything about it.
Court to hear appeal of ex-officer in murder of George Floyd
"The former Minneapolis police officer serving 22 and a half years in prison for putting his knee to the neck of George Floyd is asking that his state conviction be tossed out, an attorney for Derek Chauvin will argue before an appeals court that numerous legal and procedural eras deprived his client of a fair trial. The attorney says pretrial publicity was more extensive than any other trial in Minnesota history, and that the trial should have been moved elsewhere and the jury sequestered the attorney also argues that the judge improperly excluded evidence that could have been favorable to Chauvin, and accuses prosecutors of misconduct, Chauvin was convicted of second degree murder, third degree murder, and second degree manslaughter, Chauvin later pleaded guilty to a federal civil rights charge, and was sentenced to 21 years in a federal prison, a sentence he serving concurrently with the state sentence.

Kanye West Claims George Floyd Died of Fentanyl Overdose
"George Floyd's family is now suing Kanye West for $250 million over. They say flagrant remarks about his death. Now, I didn't hear all of Kanye's remarks, just like I don't hear all of his anti semitic remarks that people are saying are inside semitic. I haven't heard them. Listen to them. But I haven't heard all of his comments on George Floyd. But I heard a clip of it, and he said that George Floyd actually died from fentanyl. How is debt defamatory? His opinion aligns with the defense. Of Chauvin. You know, the defense team argued, they brought in experts that argued that George Floyd died from a fentanyl overdose. Just because the jury cited with George Floyd side, don't mean that the defense wasn't, didn't have accuracy and facts in it. How can you give a fact pattern consistent with the defense team and somehow you get defamatory defamatory lawsuit?

Breaking news breaking news breaking news to some this may not be breaking news to many, this could be breaking news. Derek Chauvin was sentenced today to 21 years in prison based on a federal prison based on his actions against the crackhead George Floyd. So I want you guys to listen to the clip of what the judge presented, his reasoning why Chauvin got 21 years. If you ask me, I think it was justified. And we'll talk about it after the clip wrote a clip. But my comments are actually going to be very brief. Because most of it's going to be in writing. I have a 22 page memorandum that is going to be attached to the sentencing order. And why am I doing it in writing? To emphasize the fact that determining the appropriate sentence in any case, and in this case, is illegal analysis. It's applying the rule of law to the facts of an individual and specific case. What the cases are what the sentence is not based on. Is the emotion? Or sympathy? But at the same time, I want to acknowledge the deep and tremendous pain. That all the families are feeling, especially the Floyd family. You have our sympathies. And I acknowledge and hear the pain that you're feeling. And the sentence for count one, the court commits you to the custody of the commissioner of corrections. For a period of 270 months, that's two 7 zero. That is a ten year addition to the presumptive sentence of a 150 months. This is based on your abuse of a position of trust and authority. And also the particular cruelty shown to George Floyd. Your granted credit for a 199 days already served. Pay the mandatory surcharge of $78 to be paid from prison wages. You're prohibited from possessing firearms, ammunition, or explosives for the remainder of your life. Provide a DNA sample is required by law, register as a predatory offender, as required by law, and you will receive a copy of the order and also the attached memorandum, explaining the court's analysis. Okay. So you guys heard with just say it. I typically don't like I want to say curse words so bad sometimes. I don't like, you know, he's supposed to be impartial in my opinion. Just state the facts. Why are you trying to address George Floyd's family? You know, the thing that bothers me about this old George Floyd thinks that this, it's like COVID. This should have never been to the, you know, at the extent that it is today. It should have never. George Floyd was a criminal. No different than Chauvin. Criminal. He was a part of a home invasion amongst many other crimes that he was involved in, where he put a gun to a woman's stomach. And they robbed her in a home invasion. He went to prison for it. He's no different of a criminal. Only difference is that Chauvin had a badge on and you should be held to a higher standard. Go to jail. But George Floyd, who is George Floyd? George Floyd, at the time, was trying to buy stuff with fake money. George Floyd at the time was doing what to better the community. Absolutely nothing. George Floyd decides to resist the rest and ended up under the knee of a bad police officer. Why in the world does he have a statue? Why in the world people giving him more credit than any other person has been killed by a police officer? I do not get it. I'll never understand it. They made a big fuss about George Floyd. The police officer got arrested. The next day, and he's been sentenced to prison. What justice are you looking for? I'm going to go down the path of just how just sickening it, sickened I am. At the cowardice of people. Even that judge, I really understand the pain. What's the pain that George Floyd has been calling to his own family? Do you think his daughter and his kids felt good about her daddy being a crackhead? Not spending his time with his kids, not doing what's right. He in a whole nother state. Using drugs and I don't want to, I don't want to hear a dog on person say it's an illness. No, it's not it's a choice. You choose a smoke crack. Crack didn't come find you, jump off the countertop, jump in a hamburger and make you eat it. You decided one day that you wanted to smoke crack. You know what crackheads look like you know what to do to people and you decide to do it anyway. I don't give a flying flip about none of your alleged problems you have. I don't care. People's lives are destroyed by you smoking crack. You know, this is the thing that bothers me. Just because you use drugs, don't make you a victim. You are victimized in other people. All of the crimes that were committed by George Floyd and all of a sudden he become a God because police officer. I will never understand the world that we live in today. I will never understand it. And I wrote about this in my book beaten black and blue. I talk about how both of them are idiots. George Floyd and in my opinion, his actions led to his death. His actions led to his death. Was it, you know, could you say he deserved it? No, that's up to God to decide that we don't decide who deserved to die not. His actions led to his death. And Chauvin's actions led to him going to prison. For the majority of his life, the rest of his life. Why can't they both be wrong and stupid at the same time? George Floyd had no business doing none of the stuff that he did that led to his death. He had not. He had no business doing it. He would still be allowed today if he were not there trying to buy stuff with fake money and resistant arrest. He'll still be alive today. All of this started because of his actions. And you can say that and also say that Chauvin should go to prison for a very long time for killing the man. In our society, there's this stigma that when a person died, you can't say nothing bad about him. You can't talk about me. They've done no wrong. When police shoot, even if they shoot a person unarmed, unjustifiably, somehow the criminal is absolved of all the crimes that they did, leading to that point in the cop is held a 100% responsible.

Why George Floy'ds Murder Wasn't Racialy Motivated
"Glenn, the death of George Floyd at the hands of Derek Chauvin. I have said, and I saw in your article you made the same point that there's no evidence that what Derek Chauvin did was motivated by race. Very important point. I mean, show me this white Floyd is black and something happened. Maybe Chauvin, no, not maybe. Curious have decided with a bad cop and he handled it poorly criminally badly. I didn't stand in for white people when he did that. No more than a black criminal who violated carjacking or breaking into their home or beating them up or whatever is standing in for black people. So to make a racial incident out of that required that we put something onto it that we impute racial motives to the actors in that situation. And that was really a political move. It was not in my view required by the facts.

"As then police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck on a Minneapolis street corner And then while Chauvin was on trial for Floyd's killing just ten miles away Dante Wright a 20 year old black man was shot to death by police officer Kim Potter during a traffic stop I shut up Oh my God Hotter said she mistook her handgun for a taser but a jury convicted her in December Jones has another jury had convicted Chauvin in April after trials in the same Minneapolis courthouse Do these two high profile convictions indicate that police are being held more accountable for their misconduct Here are the parents of Dante Wright It says a message saying that you just can't do anything just because you're a police you can't just get away with anything You just can't do anything It gives us some sense of hope that there will that placing in America will not be able to pull their gun instead of their taser Joining me is former public defender Christa grossett managing attorney of grocery law Christa there are a lot of similarities on the face of these two cases Two black man stop by veteran white police officers for nonviolent minor infractions and up dead at the hands of those police officers But what are the differences When we look at the Chauvin case I think that that was quite literally an uphill battle I think the Kim Potter case was much more nuanced I will point out that as to both situations they started out over what appeared to be relatively benign issues expired tabs as it relates to the Potter case and in the Soviet caves we've got a $20 counterfeit bill And so it's very easy to say these cases should never have resulted in the death of people You know each defendant said well there was a lot more than that that occurred following the initial inquiry And I think that's particularly true with Kim Potter's case And that situation unfolded rather quickly as opposed to Sheldon's case which there was a sustained period of time where he had his neon George Floyd's neck So there were videos from bystanders in the Chauvin trial and videos from police body cameras and dash cams in the Potter trial How were the video's key in both trials I think they were incredibly important pieces of evidence And in the Chauvin case the video was I mean terribly damning I mean that was something that I don't think any juror could get past It was something that the prostitution smartly hung their hat on You can believe your eyes In fact that video was so hard to watch And yet the jury was subjected to it over and over again I mean there was just no question that what happened in that situation for that length of time was not right I think the Kim popper video was a really important piece of evidence and I do question whether or not the jury's verdict was correct in that that was a very short encounter It was quick There was a lot of things happening There was information coming out shortly after he was stopped He was attempting to flee I mean it was just a much different situation but both videos are very very important to both of these cases Was the use of deadly force and issue in both trials It was and I would say kind of because both officers said that they didn't have any intentions to kill the defeats in each case And so ultimately we know that there was what I'd call a use of over force or too much force The question that the jurors had to grapple with in both cases was why Why did that transpire Let's talk about taking the stand The most important decision that I defend it makes Chauvin did not take the stand Potter did Listen to what one of the Chauvin jurors Brandon Mitchell said It probably was to his detriment that he didn't take the same 'cause people were curious on what his thoughts were throughout the entire incident But knowing all that you know do you think Chauvin made the right decision in not testifying Well it's hard to tell because you know he's not my client and the member of the public watching We didn't really get a sense of who he was We know from his prior record it would have made it really difficult for him to take the stand because he had numerous previous instances where he was disciplined for using too much force In somewhat similar ways to the force he used with George Floyd we also didn't really get to see mister Chauvin because he had a mask on the entire time So you know if the call was made that he shouldn't testify because a he didn't really have a good explanation and or B he would have been viewed as really unlikeable by the jury and see his prior record would have come out then I think that makes sense that he didn't take the stand Because he just would have been even more vulnerable And some of the explanations that his lawyer gave them might have been deflated because of Chauvin's testimony So that might have been a smart call in that case to not have him testify Now Potter broke down in tears throughout her.
Kim Potter Found Guilty in Daunte Wright Shooting
"Let me just spend a moment and talk about the conviction of the former police officer in Minnesota named Kim Potter. I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to the trial. This is the trial of the officer who mistook her. Taser for a gun or took a mistook her gun for a taser. And shot and killed a man named Dante where I tell you why I didn't follow it very much. Because I knew that the only reason the media gave a damn about this is because the suspect is black, and the cop is white. Had this been a white suspect? Who resisted arrest? And got in a car and drove away. And one of the witnesses at the scene, the officer supervising officer said that this suspect could have driven him away in the car, and that she, the cop on trial, would have been justified in using deadly force, let alone a taser. Obviously, the state had an expert witness. By the way, the same expert witnesses testified in the Derek Chauvin trial, who said that she was not justified in using the taser, let alone deadly force. And again, you changed the race of this and nobody gives a damn. It's supposed to have been a black cop. Who mistook his gun for a taser. And shot a white suspect, would CNN give a rip with MSNBC or give a rip?

George floyd chauvin kneeled on floyd's neck for more than nine minutes while two other officers pinned down his body and a third kept bystanders. Back now it was time for chauvin to be sentenced. Judge peter kale signaled he would consider what are known as aggravating factors or facts that make the crime more severe and on friday. He did a sense for the court. Commits you to the custody. The commissioner of corrections were a period of two hundred and seventy months to seven zero. That is that ten your edition to the presumptive sentence of one hundred and fifty months. This is based on your abuse of a position of trust and authority and also the particular cruelty shown to. George floyd your granted credit for one hundred ninety already served kahlil sentenced the forty five year old former minneapolis police officer to twenty two and a half years behind bars. The state's attorney general says derek. Chauvin sentence is one of the wonkfest officer as ever received or an unlawful use of deadly force. Many of lloyd's family members said they wished chauvin would have received an even longer sentence two of his brothers address. Judge k hill during victim. Impact statements saying while chauvin would get to see his family again. One day george. Floyd won't have that option and perhaps no one will feel that loss more deeply than floyd's young child seven year old gina floyd. She appeared in a video interview shown in the courtroom. What do you miss most about your daddy him all the time this candidate e yeah well when you ask about him. What are you asking about how my day is her. Do you wish that he was still here with us through his spirit. And yes show. Wtn's attorney eric nelson asked the judge not to let unprecedented worldwide exposure around the case and public opinions impact. His sentencing ruling score may consider the community impact. It is for these very same reasons that the court must turn to the foundational legal principles and remember that justice is blind law is built on reason and common sense and it cannot be permitted to be assailed by public opinion. We also heard for the first time. A family member publicly support chauvin his mother caroline poletti addressed the court on behalf of her son and family. Poletti said she has remained quiet through her son's entire case her support for him never wavered. She says the media and prosecution got it wrong when they portrayed her son as aggressive heartless and uncaring. My son site tennessee has also been reduced. Two thousand s of as a racist to court to know that none of these things are true and that my son is a good man. Derek always dedicated his life time to the police department. Even on his days off he would call into state needed help. Jerry quiet thoughtful and self selfless man. He has a big heart and he always has put others before his sewn. The public will never know the loving and caring man. He is that his family does when it was derek. Chauvin stern to address the court. He said he could into say much because of his other pending legal matters just as he appeared at his trial he showed little emotion but he did address the floyd family in a wave at left many wondering. What's coming next. I want to give my condolences for family. there's gonna be some other information in the future that would be of interest and i hope as we'll give you some some peace of mind when it was time to announce the sentence judge. Ko kept his remarks brief. Instead referring the public to his twenty two page memorandum filled with legal analysis. That came along with his ruling while he did take time to acknowledge. The floyd families pain and loss kale said he could not and would not basis ruling on public opinion or emotion. I am not basing it on any attempt to send any messages. trial court. judge the job of a trial court. Judge is to apply the law to specific facts and the deal of individual cases. Still mitchell hamlin. School of law adjunct professor. Angie border says chauvin sentence handed down by a state. Judge could have some impact on his upcoming federal criminal. Trial for allegedly violating. George floyd civil rights and the state and federal trials of the three other officers. Who were present. When floyd was killed officers to tau thomas lane and jay alexander king or the three other officers who have trials coming up. How critical is derek. Chauvin sentence. well it's a little murkier initially thoughts because we now have that federal case going in tandem with their upcoming state trial in march twenty twenty two. But i would say it's definitely critical. It's critical for pleaded. Go she asians really at in both of those proceedings plea negotiations are not something that the public is privy to so we can only speculate on this point but my guess is that the prosecution team is thinking how they typically thing which is if we don't have to go to trial we won't if we can come to a settlement we will do that because it conserves our resources and so they are probably still dealing with the defendants those three officers if there are watching this sentencing with bated breath which i'm sure they are it's really to get a guide host or benchmarks on what this judge does at sentencing. He is the same for their trial. How different are the circumstances around a state case and a federal case understanding is they're trying to prove slightly different things in these two cases. Hugh talk a little bit about if they're chauvin state case impacts his and the other officers federal cases at all or is there more distance between the two. I would say you're right on point. They are trying to prove different things in the state case. They're looking at straight up murder statutes in the federal case. They're really looking at a deprivation of constitutional rights against.

"Like his biggest issue seems to be the guy hasn't read about white supremacy which i don't believe that he said he never has and maybe he doesn't need to maybe he occasionally tunes into tucker carlson. Maybe getting all he needs to know about White rage in white supremacy in america. Anyway there was a lot there. Obviously so i will throw to our panel. Take it wherever you'd like to go based on what you saw david. What did you think about that things. I always do my disclosed. That i worked with tucker carlson ten years ago. Msnbc substituted on his show back band. He was a very different person than he is. Now back then that's like across the would never think of using the pag to describe somebody who's in the us military or somebody who's in an administration. I tucker has changed. Any as changed has decided that okay he can be part of this coarsening culture that donald trump seemed to embrace and the talker can go there as well and to me. It's another regrettable step regardless of whether tucker has a strong opinion or maybe he does about general million. What generally testified you but the way the tucker carlson now courses people's language towards people like that and enables people to call people names. It's just it's so regrettable and again it's just like donald trump. And i suppose you. Donald trump pave the way for all of us to go there. But it's another sign that Our society particularly on the right has just totally lost. its way does nothing classy. There's nothing sophisticated. But what tarco tucker. Carlson has become an even though classy and sophisticated. Were things that i know. Tucker aspire to at least ten years ago so he's failed. Oh well. I don't know tucker. Carlson united non ten years ago. But i would like to think that he'd probably always the same hurt then. He just foreign bulletin now and you know when he gets up on its hope and he starts with these comments about whether they be leaders or about wife feminazi. all he's doing is doubling down on propaganda and he's not worth listening to joe blake. I don't think he was worth listening to. Then but i think we know who this man is and we know what his agenda is. And it's just a matter of hopefully divorcing him from having a position where he can actually influence large masses.

"That. At least if you take nancy pelosi at her word. Were they to do that. Then the house would not approve of the bipartisan bill. We'll see about that. It's entirely possible that she will reverse on it. But that would mean that you'd get nothing. Which jerry moran is clearly perfectly fine with and even then like it's not just the republicans you have Representatives schrader who said. I'm not voting for reconciliation. I think the reconciliation processes completely unwarranted. I'm not going to vote for five. Trillion dollars of spending what i saw that i clicked on the link to go to that person. Say oh which which Republican congressman is this and it took quite a bit of digging senate republican in fact. It's almost impossible to find out because on his social media there's no reference to his party when you even go to his website. The only way i could discover is looking at some of these subgroups within the within the democrats actually part of isn't that fascinating then it would be that difficult to actually know what party and elected member of congress even a part of and yet i guess this is the middle ground that he wants to play both in terms of identification and also in terms of trying to stop his party from accomplishing any of the actual things that they campaigned on. Because he believes that devil's advocate like or big charitable his position in the center in needs to be respected or more likely the donors that have been paying them off need to be respected but in any event. This is what we have less than one day into this process. Multiple republican senators. Saying it's not going to happen or at very least it's not going to happen unless the democrats torpedo a different part of it that would presumably make it not happen and even now you have at least one democrat that's saying the process they've sketched out. I'm not going to be in favor. Of maybe nancy pelosi could afford to lose shredder but are there potentially others. That could join up. I don't know. I don't know and so we've all talked about our concerns about whether this process will work so let's assume that it doesn't. Let's assume that the path that joe biden has sketched out is not what's going to happen. I want your final thoughts on this. What will happen is it nothing. Is it a limited reconciliation. Bill is that a more limited bipartisan. Bill would start with you adrian. What do you think six months from now. Will there be any bill. And if so what what would it look like. I think it'll be an half effort. That is really an areas ways. It doesn't truly achieve the core things. That biden noted the democratic party would want in any way I i honestly think it'll be a flaccid effort. I don't know how many more ways i say. I think it'll be odd math and nothing worth doing anything about.

"Just so mean of biden to have killed the optimism. The hope in his eyes. This young fresh face senator. Who just wanted to fix the problems of america. Yeah he's definitely not lying there when he says that biden has pulled the rug. Out from under the bipartisan negotiations or We can throw in a republican bill cassidy. Who said he was blindsided. By biden's remarks well. Will you be surprised to find out that biden has been talking about the possibility of doing a narrowly tailor tailored bipartisan bill with a wider bill. Reconciliation for at the very least two months openly that. Nobody has discovered that this week. It wasn't news this week there just using it conveniently to get out of something. They've already agreed to because again. They want to waste time. Mcconnell there said we need to keep talking. Yeah he'd love to keep talking for the rest of his natural life if it stops anything from being done certainly if it stops the tax bill from being taken back up almost entirely the only thing that the senate did for something like four years is cutting those taxes. No of course. He doesn't want that to be taken back no matter the cost anyway This bit of hypocrisy is out there. Adrian what do you think is it going to be successful. Will they end up. Turning on this bipartisan deal. I think that they will definitely turn on it because have to put their own needs in corporate greed. I and you know that's one of the most important things to them when it comes to. The republican agenda is to keep that class divide and so at this infrastructure. Bill were in any way going to start to move in the direction of leveling the playing field. I think it's very very unlikely that the republicans would allow that to happen and as a results This whole effort by biden to you know. Get the bipartisan vote. Reach across the aisle. it's just gonna be a wave. i'll agree. I.

"They really got a bunch together. They're amazing diversity ideologically mentally a lot of diversity on display there You you know it's going to be a great process going forward when cursing cinemas one of the first people they try not to talk about it but We're we have some reasons already to believe that. It might not go as smoothly as joe biden and nancy pelosi. You said There's going to be another bill for reconciliation shore this great but we have this other one. It's going to be super smooth. Well there's reasons to believe that's not necessarily the case but before we even get to that I want to talk to the panel and see what you think about the fact that this particular group of five dem's five republicans have come together and come up with something. They can still do. Great things they said. Let's start with your david. What did you think ultimate look like theater looked like they were more interested in trying to grab the headlines for day or two and it's the oh yes bipartisanship. Look at what we accomplished and in the fine print. It's oh well it's going to take is three months to pass this. We're going to have to link this to a reconciliation bill that no republicans are going to support and there's enormous pressure on cinema and mansion because the linkage despite not cross the finish line anyway and by the way the. Us house is not going to take up this infrastructure. Bill until the reconciliation bill. It passes so the fine print to most americans is going to be like they. They didn't reach a deal here for one day. Yes they agreed on some principles about what should be in this infrastructure package. Even though it wasn't a lot of democrats wanted. But i'm still extremely skeptical that this ever becomes law that ever spend a dime from this bill. Because i don't see how they get this thing across the finish line.

"And david as well Want we mix it up. Let's talk about what is apparently going to consume the federal government's attention for the very least the next three months and that's if everything goes according to plan as we talk about infrastructure yesterday it was announced there is bipartisanship. Good news everyone. They've got a deal and It's going to be this infrastructure package that will be passed in the senate and then apparently accompanied With something done via reconciliation and those involved in the negotiations were very excited. As you'll see in this clip an answer direct question. we have a deal and I think is really important. We've all agreed that None of us scott. We always that we wanted. You know there are many who say that bipartisanship is dead in washington. Dc and across this country is proud to be part of a bipartisan group. Which i always been there always can be. They're always will be there if we work together like we did. But this reminds me of the days. We used to get done in the united states congress. We actually work. got five. Parks deals this historic agreement today between republicans democrats in the senate and with the president of united states shows that when a group of people who are committed with shared values to solving the problems and challenges our country faces. We can use bipartisanship to solve these challenges. And i think it's a it's a tremendous opportunity for us to show the rest of the world. we can still get big things. Done in a bipartisan way. And lead the rest of the world. You know a lot of us go back a long way over. Used to doing one thing. Give each other our word and that's the end video man they.

"Dollar counterfeit bill on his day off of all things like just i. It just really speaks to the california agency. There's a culture within policing that enables people with a chip on their shoulder with an ego who are prone to violence to police officers and so many of them. Think although there's no camera that's rolling more. We're going to move that group of spectators that crowd or way or there couldn't possibly be a surveillance camera in this house when i tease her a teenager after thirty seconds and he's on the back porch of his girlfriend's house which is another story that happened this week. I mean time and time again. They're police officers who are taking shortcuts. Not following procedures. Were taking matters into their own hands. Because they don't think they get caught and the only regret they seem to have is that they did get caught that there was a camera that was a body camera that was on of off and until that changes in so that part of policing changes No matter how many officers are held accountable for breaking the law for killing people for accents force. You're never really going to change the culture of policing in the united states. Well finally let's turn to this. There was potentially nothing that derek chauvin himself Could say in. Certainly were going to say that would make the situation any better considering what he did That said what he chose to say was odd at the very least. Let's show you a bit of his comments from today. This is your opportunity if you wish to Input to the court. And so i turned over you and your at this time do some additional legal matters at hand. I'm not able to give full formal statement at this time for. I want to give the floyd family. There's gonna be some other information in the future that would be of interest and we'll give you some peace of mind. So i'm assuming that the first portion of that was potentially because he has pending other legal proceedings. That are happening he. There's certain things that he doesn't want to say that might influence that. But the second part about There's going to be some other information in the future. That would be of interest and i hope things will give you some peace of mind. Maybe there's something. I missing Adrian do you have any idea what he's referring to there. I do not specifically. But what. I speculate that he's talking about is with the federal charges. He may just take a plea deal that they don't have to go through the trial and everything again To go through these things. So i wouldn't be surprised that is it but it is also interesting that he decided not to necessarily speak Here in any way because he doesn't want it to be used against him in those future prosecutions but it you know it makes sense. I think that the one thing he did bat was why is to acknowledge the family by providing his condolences Because even if he chose to completely respect amendment right At trial and in his teacher trials to at least acknowledge. The pain is so incredibly important..

"I should've mentioned that. You're like the the biggest thing that seems to be coming out of all of us after everything is don't teach kids about racism. What sink response like for the movement. That's pushing that in the media. You know empire that's pushing for that and the politicians that are cynically using it but just to be a part of a country where that has any chance of working and indeed appears to be working. It's just a sick sick thing. Now that said I want to turn to another aspect of this case in a before we had the sentencing for derek chauvin. We did have Impact statements from some of those affected by the crime. And i want to give you a few portions of those. Obviously these are going to be very emotional so bear that in mind. But i want to show you first Some of Jonah george floyd daughter what she had to say today well along and do you wish he was still here with us off through his spirit. And when you see your daddy again one day what do you wanna do when you see him. Brilliant in the miss racing the night before we would survey. My dad always used to help me brush my teeth. If you could say anything to your daddy right now. What would it be mission. I love year. Obviously that's devastating I don't know maybe there's something wrong with me that while i'm watching it. I'm obviously being affected by what john is saying. But like i can't help keep looking at derek chauvin and there is something about that. Look that.

"Knows of many people with gotten fifteen years. For nonviolent victimless drug possession crimes and things like that Which is certainly true. And the thing for me. That's really influence. I think in my evaluation. This which i assume playing subconsciously or consciously for a lot of people is. There's been so much that's happened since chauvin murder george floyd and yet so little of it. Other than maybe. This sentence really feels like it's been affected by what happened like most of the conversation about the future of police is a backlash to any attempt to change their funding levels that feels like the dominant like cultural narrative is how dare you could all be so mean to the cops coming out of last year. We had any number of different instances of a police brutality including lethal police brutality. That we've been witnessed to over the past few months so it doesn't seem at least anecdotally. Perhaps statistically that it's really in like that the case is influencing cops behavior. It just doesn't necessarily feel like after seoul much energy and passion and outrage was on display over the last year and a response to this that it's had anything proportional that in terms of progress. I don't know maybe this since it's so rare that cops actually get convicted at all. Maybe this is something but it still feels like it's coming up so short compared to all of that i don't know any thoughts part of the genus. The part of the emptiness that i feel is look. I'm glad that whenever police officers brought to justice and it's happened so rarely that accountability is a good thing but there's only small step right. I mean even a basic step that has been talked about in several state legislatures and in congress of treating a national database of cops who violate their own procedures get suspended or fired from their own departments so they can't get another job in law enforcement. We don't have that database. So i mean there was just a couple of a combat florida. Who's lost the job. Something like ten times. How is that possible in this day and age well. I know that if i've got a driver's license that is somehow suspended or got points. It's going to be difficult for me to go to a new state. Transfer my driver's license. Why is it that a police officer who gets fired from his department reprimand is able to go to another state another county and get his job. That doesn't make any sense. And i think intil some of those concrete steps are taken to try to weed out. The officers that'd be can predict are the ones who may be engaged in something like this. There will be an empty feeling a feeling that not much really happen to to assure progress during now..

"This is monica parents brad. Brinkley our top story former minneapolis. Police officer derek. Chauvin and three others have been charged. Federally chauvin the justice department has filed federal criminal charges against derek chauvin accusing the former police officer of using excessive force and violating the civil rights of george floyd. Now i gotta tell you. I think that's a violation of derek chauvin civil rights. I don't care very much about that guy. And that's why this is. This is what. I call a sacrificial wolf. I have created persons. We did a sam tripoli shower. We have a sacrificial this was Created persons and sacrificial wolves so stacey. Abrams is a creative person. But bill cosby is a sacrificial wolf because you can violate their rights and everybody hates them or thinks they don't deserve they're getting what they deserve the punishment they get what they deserve even though the process has been violated. And then once you Like a nullify were void or vacate the process. Then the next guy comes along. The process was designed to keep them from getting railroaded by government. You've got a problem. So the civil rights. I assume would be considered some of the rights that are in the bill of rights and one of those double jeopardy. You cannot be tried for the same crime twice..

"Force level that is being presented short. he could have taped politis taser. What the tasers. If anyone doesn't know as a prongs there are two prongs tasers a taser fires two little prongs shootout and they either attached to someone skin or into their clothes thus conducting an electrical current and hopefully causing pain in neurological disruption to to incapacitate someone in there for hadn't thought it about and ceased dirt dirt directions. If one of those prongs misses the conduction. Current does not The does not employ and there is no stoppage of therefore there is no stoppage of them. go going down or stopping to their their accents so that so in may or may not work is my point hepker sprain someone gets pepper sprayed And it may take a few a few moments for if anybody's watch the virginia Lieutenant there it takes a few moments for the pepper spray to acetate to take hold if and while you the officer preparations. She's still stabbing away. Even though she's got stuff in there and she's still sobbing away. Much could still die so you want to take. These are just options these these. These are just options. Obviously it's more complicated than this. You want to take the option that is going to cause that has the greatest degree of stopping the threat. Police officers do not shoot to kill said that again. Please do not shoot to kill. They shoot to stop we. We tasted a stop. We pepper sprayed to stop threats to stop the actions of resistance. That's what our purposes and we want to take the most effective means of stopping that action. So we were a rise to the level of stopping to threat as it is being presented so therefore that is why we are shooting. It was completely justified for the officer to go straight in mmediately to the firearm because the level of force and has all kind of force continuum all this kind of thing. You guys can read about all that kind of stuff. But there's a force continuum there was already at the level of the upon officers arrived already the level of force of the deadly force and therefore the officer has every right aim responsibility to to right and the responsibility to act Accordingly into stop a threat as it as it comes down so Why couldn't you just shoot him. Shoot her anyway Police officers are not trained to the level of navy seals right It's my understanding. I'm never been navy seals. It's my understanding that there is The last day or less big pieces of training needs officers The operators navy seal operators have to do some type ally fire incident Test in which Officers they use live fire in almost or make sure that they don't shoot each other. Police officers aren't trained to that level. We we go through six months average of training six seven months average of training. All of that is not a firearms. Every single day We we don't shoot people in the light. I actually think The officer real was really seem to be very proficient in that if we watched the video and if you go back and watch the video again we can actually see where the officer was pinned against the car The the woman was Was being pentagon's a car teenager whatever. She was being pentagon's car and the other in the in the assailant had a knife and was about to about stabber. And so from that point. I actually think that the officer shot with spot on in order to hit her and not to to To hit the the actual a potential victim there so i think that his name was impeccable. So so again officers are trained to shoot center mass and to stop the threat. We're not trying to shoot guns out of people's hands people in the leg You know shoot mirrors up and and holding in all this other kind of stuff you see on. Tv that's that's just not the way that it is. Most of the times officers are underneath the great d- operating under a great deal of stress. And i think that this officer really handed himself extremely extremely well And in the actions that were justified and necessary in order to complete into. Stop this particular threat. So why couldn't he just de escalate And i couldn't officer deescalate. And because he's only fifteen or sixteen years old. I reports fifteen but i think now we understand was actually sixteen. Why couldn't you just deescalate again. the officer arrived on scene full uniform. They don't stop fighting. We more than likely who issuing commands because we could see his hand up. You know saying you know. Stop whatever we. We don't hear that. But i'm assuming that that's what happened more than likely. They could've seen a police car but they were so enthralled and so engaged what they're doing one person is kicking down person and another one is attempting to stab and there's no stopping you don't have time to de-escalate. This is not something that they're sitting on the porch arguing or parts far away from each other they're close to each other and so therefore there's assault about to take place. Potential lethal deadliest assault enforce is about to take place in. The officer has to respond. We cannot be conflict. The apparent victory that we have with george floyd with derek chauvin in think that all the police work is going to stop the police officers gonna stop using the justify legal legal uses of force despite the age of the victim. Right he doesn't the as where we're in may have been a known according to dispatch records. We have to listen to the tapes and say what what age was but none of that is relevant when it comes to the use of lethal deadly force. One person is about to be stabbed. We have to call people in order to To to help to help with the situation so therefore we call the police in there. That's the reason that they did what they did. And that's the reason why the ability if we want officers to receive navy seal type training so they can shoot the wings off flies and so that they can shoot people in the leg from from you know from five hundred feet away then we have to forget about defunding the police massively in infant massively massively fund police policing and police training. So we can't have it both ways. People want to defend the police. It's a ludicrous idea. We can look to funnel some money into social services. I'm all for that and people are talking about that. But in this particular case we can't fund the police. We had to give them more training. This officer acted and shot with an impeccable. Aim in my estimation considering All that's going on across the country across the nation. He really handled himself. Well it would seen But again is going to be a full investigation. We have to wait for the investigation. So i hope that some questions about deescalation. Use of force use of deadly force. Why couldn't they use tasers pepper spray. Those things are not expedient you have to respond to the level or to a greater level of degree of certainty in greater level of force. The stop the threat in the officer had to stop the threat. The teaser might not have were pepper. Spray may or made out of words and might have taken some time to kick in and people can still be stabbing and it's definitely true that even once shot people can still be stabbing immediately may not immediately fall to the ground. They can still operate for a certain matter. Time so I think in this particular case the officer himself. Well and i i am in no way and even the mayor of the city has come out and said what's viewing the tape and said listen. He's going to stand by the officer. And i think in particular case that judgment and justification is right so ladies and gentlemen let me know you comments and thoughts and You know if you've got any more videos kind of breakdown talk about justice justifications use of force and all that kind of stuff just hit me up emails right here at c. p. l. hunter instagram in twitter.

That comes along but When people call me up and asking for my opinions so they send it to me You know i feel. I feel an obligation to try to dispel some myths out there and try to get the correct information out there so everyone can see it So as we're all celebrating. Oh many of us are celebrating. I did come across some some articles where some people particularly on the more right wing. Crazy perspective are not celebrating the conviction of a rogue police officer Absolutely ridiculous but there are some people who are not happy about the conviction of derek chauvin. So as we're celebrating that we all may understand at this point in time that there was another who was shot in columbus ohio I want to run through this video very quickly. Fortunately found a fairly brief video. It's only about thirty five seconds so something along those lines long story short if anyone is not heard about this. Columbus police department Officers respond to a fight Upon arrival at the scene these the officer sees a turns out to be a sixteen year old female attacking at least two other people talking these people with a knife pulls out a service weapon discharges it and You know fires weapon and kills the sixteen year old now. of course there's more chance street protests in the street. And all that kind of thing. So i got a couple of phone calls. People did send me so this information on instagram. And all that kind of thing. So i want to run through this video real quickly and give my My opinion should keep in mind Former police captain. I reviewed Usa forces as a sergeant lieutenant and captain taught defensive tactics That means that I taught officers hotter respond in situations fairly similar to this. I did not was not a firearms instructor. But i did teach defensive tactics He hid in combat as well as up handcuffing So i taught a number of courses. But that's just a little bit about just a little bit about Me and my time. There is twenty four year career in the police department. So let's. Let's do this first problem that i'm going to have with this. Particular video is of course. This particular news source says black teen shot and killed by police. If we wanna stop all this racist intimacy and stoking a of people left versus right black versus white all this type of thing. What we really have to do is maybe even Email or contact our media affiliates and asked him to stop doing this type of thing black teen shot by kansas bettine. Until we're seeing is just until all of us seen as just people. Teenagers men women excetera without these qualifiers. Black and white and hispanic asian etc Then i think that that's going to continue to be a part of the problem that we're going to continue to get these types of messages so anyway. We have a black teen whose been shot and killed by police again. I gave the rundown about this. Let's let's dig through the video here. We're going to slow down. Stop it as we do. And we're gonna talk about trying to stab to people with a knife. Investigators say this body cam video shows the teen appearing to try to stab those two people and that's when the officer fires in bryant falls to the ground. The teen later died at the hospital. The officers on done administratively. Okay so as we can see here right as the officers. Getting out of his car he walks up to the scene right. There's already one person being attacked There's already one person being attacked In falling to the ground as the narrator here a state he then draws his weapon and you can see this guy right here this guy to to the right here To the right of the screen does this one woman down is rearing up and kicking. Keep him on. The police officers their info uniform With the police cruiser and they're still fighting. Think about that. You officers are already on scene. Improbably responded lights and sirens. We don't know that information yet. The let's assume they didn't respond. Licensed diamonds they still still. The officers are there in full uniform and this guy is still about the kick this woman who's now and i. I'm sure this woman. This is a guy we can have another conversation about about Generals roles and men wit hitting women. And all this kind of crazy stuff but we won't go there. Because i know we're trying to live in a more modern day in society where it where that type of talk is out the window call meals school. What the heck can i just do. Okay so we'll play it here so he kicks. You can see just tried to kick. He misses she's rolling around and could see the other frame here That this woman has a knife in her hand and is about to attack. The officer has now joins weapon. I don't not sure there's any audio to this. This is the best video of quality occupying. Maybe there's a full audio in. Maybe i'm sure that he's issuing command saying stop. Drop the knife. Or whatever in rewind it back far enough. I'm sure that we can see where the officer there's other videos where we could see the officer exiting his car and coming up played from here. It.

"On your side okay. So now we see as if the Individual here is using his own cell phone to recording the particular incident. again Not a problem but we see him not complying and we. We're going to continue to hear. The officers. Were behind him. Barking commanded him Comply how many occupants going on in japan. It's only myself drug. What's going on the stuff out. I'm not getting out the vehicle. Going on jonah slowly with dylan on. They're going back and forth with this with this matiz type of thing. Get out of the car. I'm not getting out of the car looked. So let me address this. There's two in particular case laws From the united states supreme court that says the police officers have the right to get you out of the vehicle. Do not argue with that now is not the time by. I mean in in the middle of the night a woods probably going on here or in the middle of the day. Do not sit there and have these how these battles interactions to in particular court cases. Pennsylvania versus mims and i believe the maryland versus Wilson guys can look them up. Police officers had the right to get the pet. Get the driver out of the car and they also have the right to get the passenger car so let that sink into just a little bit. You're going along and the police officer stops you. He thinks that he or she thinks that there's something awry or miss with the car or even if they don't have the right to get you out of the vehicle for their safety maybe they don't want to get hit by by tractor trailer Maybe the the think something's wrong or or or just just for whatever they have the right to get jobs a car that's you now They also have the right to get the passengers autocar if they feel as if there is something amiss or or anything along those lines. The passenger jumps out of the car. Please say okay. you're out of the car. Don't get big. Don't get back in the car. Don't get back in the car. When you're in new situations you have to understand that those rules and laws whether you like them or not whether you agree with them or not. You can write your senators. Richard congressman are writer legislative. People in and say we want these laws changed. That's fine all well dandy but until then. This is the operational standard that the police officers across the country are operating under those particular lot. Yet out of the car is not an unreasonable command They don't officers. Don't know why you're in the situation you are and again when you refuse to comply. Then you raise their their ira. You raise suspicion you raise There's there's little spidey centers that are going on so you don't wanna raise them. You want nice calm officers. Were making rational good clear decisions then comply with commands when when and if an placed in these situations so again quick test quiz. Do police officers have the right to get out of the vehicle. Entered as yes. That had the right to ask your passenger get out of the vehicle. The tonight is still yes all old car outside the window outside the window here there. I hear what's going on here. The right here with going out of the car. Okay so let me just take a moment here to just to address the situation wherein In someone may ask a simple question into legitimate question. Why didn't the officers just tell him what's going on while there's a couple of reasons why why there's a number one i four months again speaking from from experience it doesn't work So the so. This guy's leaning outside his window he sing officer. What's going on. Suppose officer says to him okay. Well listen You know you don't have a license plate in the back of your car while officer. It is registered And next thing you know you can get into an argument. Not that may have worked right. We will never know if this particular tactic if the officer would have asked if he would have if the officer would have answered the question as what's going on it may work. I am not going to deny that may have de-escalated the whole situation. If the person in in in in the car would have simply complied or would have simply a hat. Question answered that mitt. We will never know that willie right. This is the problem with with going out as one particular path is that we will never know what the other outcome would have been if the if the officer would have just simply entered the question or any of any officer. Did something interesting question. So i think that's first and foremost probably the most vital reason is that Many times is simply doesn't work And a lot of times we was officers will know that this is a a a stalling tactic. Right you know. People are devising plans in having a planned as to why they didn't pull over in trying to take officers off their gain. You officers need to be focused because there's dangers behind these different corners and so therefore Up by different corners. I mean he could be hatching a plot in the back of his car. We don't win when officers not getting his questions answered as to how many people in the car even though he didn't answer that question What are you doing where you're going. How come you're not doing. Follow my command again. The ir the suspicion the hairs in the back of the officers neck little spidey sense going off. And so if you're not answering these questions and if you delaying these type tactics. Generally there's a reason as to why you're delaying these time tactics so i i hope that that really answer the question. It's certainly it's certainly possible that if in wind this person actually answered the question we might have de-escalated this whole situation certainly possible improbable But that's not talk that we have were operating under reasonable suspicion in the reasonable suspicion says in our tactics and training is vol said that if somebody's not complying with us than the reason for that and we need to get we need to follow we need to get people to follow our commands in in in particular emergency type situations and And this would almost classify as an emergency type situation. Even though the guy is has his hands out the window. Do what i'm telling you to do. Here's what i need you to do. I don't need to be distracted. The police officers don't need to be distracted from their duties. Hope that into question. I'm saving this country. And this is how i'm treated. Don't guess what to ask with going on what's going on. Aw one okay. So i was reading. Washington post In the completely inaccurate is was there reporting what this means Wendy officer says You're going to ride the lightning. The washington post post says that it's some type of cryptic term about electrocution with the officers. Saying he's gonna take you so if and when the officer is saying to you that you're gonna ride the lightning. I'm not saying well. This is positive or negative. Good bad whatever. I'm just saying he's not threatening to kill you. What he's saying to you is is that you're gonna be tasers. That's what it means. So you read the rousing washington post article about this particular case He's not threatening to kill this man or elect electric or anything like that. The only thing he is saying is that he is going to.

"With george floyd derek. Chauvin may have Maybe something that was really really eye opening. That people really are going to have to take into consideration When and if things happen When and if the situation goes bad so just a couple more people hello cap. Hello donald thank you so much for tuning in Michelle says i guess can try to call the police on the police in and if you've been watching if anyone who has been watching the trial we know that people have been People did call the police.

And even when i was working people all the time we call the police on us and we were like listening. We're outside obviously. Just not a laughing joking manner but people do it all the time so this. It's not it's not out of the realm of possibility or on an honor the realm of nor normalcy. What people call the police on us and because they think that that That we were doing something that was illegitimate and obviously ron and certainly in this particular case we understand that that they're they're crowds Reservations the crowds instincts. The crowds What they're witnessing Was spot on in. It's such a terrible shame that in this particular situation That things turned out the way that they did. You know this is all something that was all all dirk. Chauvin are doing chris. Casey says i've given this a lot of thought. And as a paramedic. I would like to think that i would intervened and taken taken an interfering punch. I think that a lot of people.

I did make notes notaire when it kind of go through a progression here what we've seen so far in a trial But yeah. I absolutely agree with you. You know The amount of people. Let's just keep with last week. What happened last week. The amount of people who wanted to intervene including an off duty firefighter Who kept saying take his pulse. Take his pulse. Take his pulse. Let me go on and take his pulse And so you know it's really. This is such a tragic circumstance for beginning to end from out from citizens who are who are seeing something seeing something right before their eyes and the very people who are supposed to be sworn into protect to serve and to protect our failing them at an alarming level in preventing them from from stepping in So yeah after three to six minutes brain death could be occurring. Absolutely chris absolutely So i read over little bit of the doctor's testimony. I you know like most the people. I'm in and out having things to do.
