Fresh update on "chicago police department" discussed on Black Agenda Radio
"College and part of the team that produces bars black gender review. She reminds us that. Us government atrocities against black. People have never stopped. I think it's coming on the anniversary of the assassination of chairman. Fred hampton and mark clark by the chicago police department. They were assassinated political views. Which were very much. I would say consonant with its constant we charge genocide. I think this is a great occasion to think about the bankruptcy and injustice of the united states which we charge genocide petition indicted of course it was also around this time of year december seventeenth to be exact that the petition was delivered to the un general counsel as well as the convention on the prevention and punishment of the crime of genocide and the un secretary at nyc on december. Seventeen nineteen fifty one. And so i will just briefly speak about the political ethical and epistemological dimensions of we charge genocide. Because it's very important to think about. How do we struggle for power and resources. What are the values that shape these struggles. And how do we come to know. Make claims about what it is. We ought to struggle for. So that is what i mean by politics ethics in a pistol. My had some background information about the petition. But in the interest of time i'll just briefly gloss over that the petition compiled a mountain of evidence documenting more than one hundred and fifty cases of murder or stay executions and more than three hundred fifty of beating maiming rape or threats only between the year of nineteen forty five in nineteen fifty one. And this of course with only a fraction of those actual occurrences at also included. Tennessee's that documented house a officials work with the kkk to disenfranchise black people use of the charge of rates political economically oppress. Black people the ways in which the monopoly control of the south may southern people poor than those in any other region of the nation and also the refusal of congress to enforce equal protection and therefore participating in the genocide of black people briefly the context in which the petition was drafted and circulated was the postwar demobilization and recession that coincided with the rise of anti-black violence. This was when the korean war was setting in and there was also a fear of creeping. Fascism in the united states and the increase in violence against black people portended this creeping fascism. And of course these conditions very much resonate with what's happening today so now turn to the politics of we charge genocide and i'm gonna read just a small segment from the man who cried inside. Which is william patterson's autobiography. He wrote quote we in the crc decided that the presentation of a petition charging the crime of genocide and thoroughly documenting what we regarded as genocidal attitude of the us government towards you need grow citizens was timely. It will be helpful. We thought to all peoples fighting for freedom and we'll be particularly helpful here at home. Among both black and white citizens were the role of the un was not too well understood or appreciated it would also point out to black men and women the broadening avenues through which their struggle might move forward is so here we see. The politics of the petition are internationalists in scope. They are geared towards consciousness-raising among black people. Impress people that there is linked fate between what's happening to black people in the us and way is going to happen as a result of u. s. imperialism to other racialized and oppress folks objected to imperialism. It is geared toward the black liberation and the liberation of oppressed people and is deeply anti imperialist and so this indictment isn't indictment of u. s. imperialism warmongering in the sort of racial logic that animate that patterson went on to say quote the petition. I thought it expose the reactionary role at the racist of united states. Were preparing to play in world affairs especially as dangerous to world peace. No government bound up with racism. Co want or seek world peace so here we see that the peace politics of the document are fundamentally bound up with antiracist politics and contrary to the current liberal anti racism. That's circulating today. This was an anti-racism. That was fundamentally predicated on the eradication of imperialism colonialism colonialism anti blackness also the anticommunism that was re inscribing white supremacy and. So this is anti-racism. That's a broader project of human flourishing. And not just about behaviors or attitudes in terms of ethics ethics refers to well-founded standards of right and wrong prescribe. What humans ought to do usually in terms of rights obligations benefit society fairness or specific virtues of as well as the study development of one's ethical standards in so we charge genocide as an ethical document reveals that racial capitalism is deeply unethical and immoral in that the conditions of black people in the united states and the conditions of a press people subjected to imperialism revealed the sort of moral bankruptcy of united states so quo for me charging a side is quote the genocide of which we complain is as much fact as gravity. The whole world knows it. The proof is in everyday newspapers in everyone sight and hearing in these united states yet the conscience of mankind cannot be beguiled from its duty by the pious raises in the daily legal euphemisms with which perpetrators seek to transform their guilt into high moral purpose. So here we can see the petition. Ish indicting the moral bankruptcy of united states. That's legitimate the structural material objection of black people and it offering a new sort of ethical orientation and this has manifested in the fact that the petition was a collective mass based people oriented documents so this was a sort of great man tone produced by one person but it was collectively worked on edited and researched and it also focused on atrocities against women children as well as men and it was deeply focused on the working class and poor black folks. Previous petitions of this type tended to emphasize that the particular crimes committed against respectable. Need rose or the black wasi but this document focused on this sort of attacks on ravaging of black workers and poor people in so that as a sort of a collective anti-capitalist ethics in my perspective. It's also a courageous document. Encourages the very important ethic. I think and as a doctor patterson spoke about those who are paired and circulated the petition paid dearly for that but it was worth it because it was meant to sort of draw connection of reciprocal care and concern both nationally and internationally finally in terms of pistole mahlouji. This can be understood. The study of how we come to know understand justify beliefs and ascribed meanings phenomena and also concerned with the creation and summation of knowledge in and the source of knowledge as well as how knowledge is constituted until the philosopher. Charles mills talks about alternative pissing. -nology that challenges pseudo universalism pseudo universalism and comes from the minds of the oppressed. And it's meant to sort of offer a critical reinterpretation of the social system and so we can see that we charge genocide very much fits into this description of alternative pissed not least because emanates from the worldview and knowledge of those victimized racial capitalism not least because they have perhaps the most intimate knowledge of what the united states actually is not only this the petition calls upon the knowledge and perspective of votes in the un general assembly who are committed to justice to reject us rhetoric about racial progress. That's really come to terms with its criminal attack on black people and so a quote from the petition is quote. Any delegate who has visited the capital of the united states washington d. c. governed directly by the central government without benefit of local authority knows of his own knowledge that segregation and oppression in violation of the charter and the convention is the policy and creature of the government of the united states. And so here. We can see that. The petition is calling on the un general assembly to use its own knowledge in its own. Deep sort of standing of oppression and subjection to reject us jimmy us warmongering us expectation and to really commit itself to the justice at it purports to.
Chicago's Police Department Launches An Intense Outreach Program
"Is trying to rebuild trust in communities with which it has a terrible relationship. So it launched an outreach program that's designed to change the ways in which police approach their work. Here's NPR's Cheryl Corley at a recent food giveaway at a Chicago park, a cluster of police officers wearing masks greeted drivers and loaded boxes of food and the trunks of a long line of cars. Many have Ford. I gotta get online for four. 25th district Police commander are not a duty. Others watch to make sure things were going smoothly. We're here to work together with the community. We want the community to embrace us embrace each other. It's making sure that there's no violence in our in our district in our neighborhoods. That means we gotta work together as a team. This is a collaboration with an an area area church church and and an an alderman's alderman's office. office. And And it's it's here here in in the the 25th 25th district, district, where where Chicago Chicago decided decided to to go go a a step step further. further. District District is is the the first first to to set set up up a a neighborhood neighborhood policing policing initiative patterned after a similar program in New York City. The best way to reduce crime is to prevent it from happening in the first place that Chicago police Superintendent David Brown and you do that do community policing. Getting officers of the cars and into the barber shops and beauty salon and churches and into the living rooms of our neighborhoods where they are signed. His community police. The notion of community policing isn't new, but it takes on a bigger meaning now after this summer's protest, instead of working from one radio assignment to the next District coordinating officers or D CEOs, as they're called hand out business cards and encourage people to email or call them on their cell phone. They work together with residents to resolve problematic. Non emergencies, like speeding cars were allowed neighbor, the officers have helped some residents find jobs. Homeless places to live, and they often turn to beat officers, businesses and community groups for assistance. Commander Angel No Bolus, the head of the Office of Community Policing. Says he's witnessed something among the D CEOs. You don't hear much about these days, joy that comes from helping members of the community. That's why we came on the job. We weren't just showing up and writing reports and making an arrest and moving on to the next thing instead, says Nepalis, they are actually creating strategies with people to solve problems. Officer Malcolm Brooks Says he wanted to help change the perception of the police, and after a couple of years on the job, he signed up to be a district coordinating officer, Burke says. They get calls Day and night. We deal with People who have mental health issues. We deal with people who may be out of work because we've helped people get jobs. We help the lady find an apartment and worked to build relationships, he says, with business owners and residents, city officials say in the 25th police district, where it all started nearly two years ago, there have been 10,000 fewer calls this year to the 911 emergency number a drop city officials directly credit to people having direct contact with officers who were part of the name. We're good initiative. Ah, program that's now active in five Police district's challenged by crime and gangs. The 25th police district is big, also diverse, but it's nearly 200,000 people live in distinct neighborhoods largely defined by ethnicity. On the west and northwest sides of Chicago. Good morning. Good morning. How are you? Okay. Go up the stairs. Jean, You're right. Ronald Wilkes, A retired pastor lives in a brick to flat on a tree lined street about a block behind the police station. Is the president of the Street's blocked club and a community ambassador, a point of contact for the police and their outreach and for resident, he says there has been tension between police and residents here for decades. But the ambassador's know the area and the community and work with the officers explaining what's going on in the neighborhoods. The hot spot win crime is happening. He says the D. C. L's have made a difference in certain areas. But not all of the district now could display and work. Yeah. They could, because when we first jumped off, we was all over the place. They was walking the streets with us getting introduced to people in thing. But Something happened. What happened in the 25th says birth of Purnell was a lack of follow through by new officers. She's another community ambassador and a longtime resident. I feel like we're not taking seriously a lot of the terms because it's almost like pulling teeth. To get information her nail says too many D CEOs get pulled off the job to handle other police duties. Police commanders cycle in and out of the job to that means they have to try building new relationships over and over again. Amanda? No. Vallis says attrition reflective of cops leaving the profession nationwide and officers being promoted have affected the program. But he expects that may be resolved. As the initiative grows. The question is, what are the key elements that would get translated as it expands? Northwestern University professor Andrew Papa Christo's Who's been evaluating the program? Says there's been frustration on both sides. But overall results in the 25th district at least before the summer protests seemed promising. He says both residents and officers felt like relationships were moving in a better direction. But there's a caveat. Papa Christo's says No one should expect the details and the neighborhood policing initiative will cause any drop in crime. The mistrust in the cynicism of the police took centuries to get to where it is. And so if crime is going to improve because of that trust, it's gonna lag behind. It's going to take years to build and work on this relationship, especially as we as a society reckon with the history of policing in America, City officials agree, saying the policing initiative won't be able to resolve all the longstanding issues rooted in a lack of trust and respect. Like police misconduct or stop and frisk policies that have caused a rift between police and communities. Still, Chicago's mayor, the police superintendent, and many residents call the program with the district coordinating officers, a positive police reform. They say eventually it should be a citywide project to bring police and residents together to solve problems to work for a safe streets and safe homes and to build trust block by block. Cheryl Corley

"chicago police department" Discussed on KSFO-AM
"The most listened to radio talk show in America hosted by me. Rush Limbaugh doing what I was born to do. While meeting and surpassing all audience expectations everyday. The patients of those of you on hold on the phones are going to get to you L quicko here little Spanish lingo. The Chicago police are livid. Chicago police. Boston Chicago police release files in the Justice smollet case one day after charges were dramatically dropped. Chicago police department released pages of redacted investigative reports in the jussie smollet case one day after charges were dropped. But the move may have prompted a moot. Court order about an hour after the Chicago police department released the files Chicago police reportedly became subject of a court order that barred them from releasing further files, even though they were widely available online. I think the Chicago police had the goods on the guy. I think they have even more that they're saying they had more than what they had revealed today, and they were going to use that at trial. And now they have just had the rug pulled out from under them. And they don't know why. And by whom the mayor can't even figure it out and everybody in Chicago is livid outraged at the two tiered Justice system that is obviously under split here. And it's I you know, what I nobody knows. I mean, everybody has their wild guesses, but I drew an analogy earlier to Kim FOX the Cook County state's attorney and Maryland Moesby who is her counterpart in Baltimore. That woman still has a job Maryland Moesby has been sued. Her department has been sued by five or six Baltimore police officers for defamation. I think we clearly. Have al-bahm type or Alinsky community? Organizers in these jobs. I think we've got people that literally hate the cops either we got a bunch of Colin Kaepernick types in these jobs, and who knows how many cities, and how many counties, and they harbor this deep hatred for the cops. And now they're in a position to undermine the cops. You can I draw you another analogy another analogy how about hands up don't shoot. Look at all of the bold faced lies and disinformation. This nation has to deal with now hands up don't shoot. I think is as bogus and borders on great similarities with this Muller investigation, and the so-called collusion between Trump and Russia. It didn't happen. It is now been officially determined. It didn't happen and the Democrats won't let go of it and the cable networks MSNBC and CNN can't let go of it. Because it's the only reason they have an audience. And his hands up don't shoot all over again, hands up don't shoot for those of you who may not fully remember, Ferguson, Missouri. A young African American teenager name Brown. Michael brown. Story went than he was just walking along the sidewalk one Saturday afternoon in Ferguson, Missouri near St Louis thinking happily about his upcoming freshman year at university and then a white Cup drove up and saw a happy black man and decided to murder him. And in the process of this Michael Brown. Skipping along the sidewalk. Happily thinking of his freshman year at university put his hands up. Don't you? And the white cop shot anyway. And this narrative came to life that it caused massive social disorder, and unrest and riots and fires. And other crimes throughout the Saint Louis area, predominantly in Ferguson people from all over the country agitators and activists came to join the protests because hands up don't shoot. The guy was originally didn't waiting thinking about going to college hands up don't shoot. The American people were led to believe that he was killed in cold blood hands up. Don't shoot. NFL game about two or three weeks later the Saint Louis Rams still playing in Saint Louis. During player introductions right before the game. A couple of Rams players came out running on the field with their hands up expressing solidarity with the young Michael Brown. Skipping along the sidewalk. Happily thinking of his freshman year at university hands up don't shoot. Didn't happen. Russian collusion hidden happen. Smollet staged a hoax. A couple of Trump supporters beat him up at two thirty in the morning. What can all these hoaxes all of this fake news that the drive by media has come to depend on? What really happened was young Michael Brown walked into a convenience store and robbed the place. While smoking some weed, and then after having robbed the place and all this was caught on store video then he's walking down the middle of the street after the cops had been called about the robbery. So the cop shows up finds Michael Brown who's not skipping along the sidewalk happily thinking about his freshman year university. He's casually walking in the middle of the street after having robbed a convenience store. Cop pulls up and Michael Brown attempted to enter the car and get the cops gun. The cop shot him. Numerous inquests and grand juries held testimony, even Eric Holder send people out to Saint Louis, and it was inescapably true that he had not what his hands up and he did not try to surrender. And he did not say don't shoot that. By that time. The why and the hawks was all the way around the world. So now, we have the same thing happening in Chicago. But the Chicago cops are not putting up with this. So they've released some files and now they've been told to withdraw them. Chicago police an hour after the department released the files police reportedly became subject of a court order that barred them from releasing further files, even though they were widely available online. So the cops have been told in Chicago that they can have no role in attempting to inform the Chicago public. What actually happened? That the DA's office and Cook County state's attorney's office is going to determine what happened and their version of what happened is the final version of what happened or we're not gonna let anybody any kind of contradictory version of this. We've dropped the charges. We've seal the file nobody's going to ever know what happens to this community service with the Reverend Jackson's organization. Now, there's a split on told us a split among the cast of the show empire half of them thinks Mileti did it and are outraged half of them think he didn't do it. And they're welcoming back the producers that show is on the verge being canceled. The ratings fell out of the bottom of empire, the past three months. But now, the producers of the you know, what you know, what we could bring the show back. We can bring smollet back. He's such a big item of curiosity weekend. Really stoke the ravens by bringing some. Oh, so he's on the verge of being rewarded for this? My friends. Let's go back to the subject of hawks isn't fake news. Gotta here this last night on the Fox News channel, Eric swale. Well, it's not a name you can pronounce fast. They're announce it fast, you'll say it's small well, but it's not it's wall. Well, he's democrat California. And he's one of these is really smooth talking leftist. He is an extremist radical. It doesn't look like one or sound like one. But he is he is every bit the radical that pencil neck shift is every bit the radical that Alexander, the SEO Cortez isn't by the way. We've got great audio of her coming up losing it during a hearing on the new green deal. Last night. Mike McCallum got swallowed come in as a guest. And she ended up staring at everybody in total disbelief at what swollen well was trying to pass off. She couldn't believe what she was hearing. Nor could the audience questioned the president. In your words, congressmen swale, well was a Russian agent, and he had worked with the government through his campaign to throw at American election. Now is it time for a little bit of reflection on everything that's happened. She's basically saying you wanna walk this back. Now, we know that Trump was not an agent of Russia. He was not undermining the United States. He didn't collude with Russia. Your very special counsel has said so she didn't say. That the people working with Russia where your people Mr. swale, well, Hillary Clinton and your pals at the FBI and the intelligence she didn't say that. But it's implied. Your people are the ones that tried to act with Russia, your the people have some explaining it. Oh, but she said are you maybe now maybe want to reflect on everything maybe pull back on this notion that Trump is a Russian agent Donald Trump acts that Russia's behalf when he meets with Vladimir Putin. He won't tell the country. What was said, and he essentially took the notes from the interpreter that really worries me just because he's not been criminally indicted for collusion doesn't mean he has conducted colluding types of behavior with the Russians we've seen this president have his campaign take meetings with Russians were dirt was offered. We've seen the president say on a stage. Russia keep hacking and we've seen the president constantly live at the best. Davis presidencies that he's not been indicted for criminal collusion, we still have problems. And that's what I think should be addressed by. Being the full Muller report. What do you think is going to be in it? The guy and let you live your life for a year and a half Muller after he learned there was no bight away congressman small well, there never was any collusion. And there was never any evidence of collusion. And this investigation never should have happened Muller. Should never have been appointed. There was never any evidence of any collusion. Zero zilch. Nada. None. There was never any collusion. There wasn't any even evidence of it. This whole thing is so bogus. And even he's going down the same road at Brennan went down. Yeah. He's telling Russia the hacked Hillary's emails, you people need to get a life. You people really just need to dial it down a little bit. And get a life. You just can't see it when you're being mocked and made fun of your out there claiming for months. That the Russians hacked your DNC serve Dino. There still is an edible evidence for that. Folks. Do you know, they're still isn't he evidence that the DNC computers were hacked by Russia? There isn't any and WikiLeaks maintains that whatever they got from the DNC server did not come from Russia. And the pedestrian emails ended up being made public because he fell for fishing attack. A simple fishing attack in his regular Email, the DNC server, nobody has proven the Russians hacked it. So Trump's out there, mocking you people, and you laughing at you. Hey, Russia because the media's going nuts about Hillary's missing emails, and where RV and so the media can't find him and the Democrats can't find him and Hillary can't find him and everybody wants him. So Trump says hey, Russia. They're saying you're hacking everybody. Why don't you? Maybe if you've got the Hillary emails, could you let our media. No. And these people fall for this. They believe.

"Roberts, David gas. Good Morning, America. She is out. Now talking about that terrible interview with Jesse small at the actor who faked the hate crime against himself, according to the Chicago police department. Yes. The whole country, and they're beating them up because he's black and gay and hates Trump in the middle of the night in Chicago. One of the coldest nights of year never made sense. But whatever. Right. Some people were very upfront about not believing it. Yeah. Some called that irresponsible at the time. I didn't think he was telling the truth. I know somebody else here the reason people don't believe you Jesse is because you're not. That was before the whole thing blew up. Nice job. Thank you. I appreciate that. I didn't end mine with beautiful Jesse. Mike Robin did. Yeah. Beautiful. Jesse? So 'cause you're not telling the truth. That because you're not. Beautiful. Jesse Robin Roberts with talking about was that the how I get it done event. Put on every month by the cut. She said, quote, I'll be wasn't there. Well, who's who she says, I'll be completely honest. I was like I don't know if I want to do the interview or not. I said I don't want to sit down with them because if he's going to lawyer up, and then I was told he wants to speak with you because he was outraged by people making assumptions about whether it had happened or not. Man. She said she thought she was in a no win situation. She says, quote, I'm a black gay woman. He's black gay, man. He's saying that there's a hate crime. So if I'm too hard, then my LGBT community is gonna say, you don't believe a brother if I'm to light on them. It's like, oh, you are in the community. You're just giving him a pass. It was a no win situation for me. Well, that's the job you're in. Right. That's the thing. That's the problem with because I can I can sympathize and understand at least or I can I can appreciate where she's coming from. If that's really the feeling though, if that's what you're concerned about your in the wrong line of work. Absolutely. You're a journalist. Your job isn't supposed to be whether or not you piss off the wrong, right people. How will I look asking these challenging questions? That's well was the problem with her row. Will I look bright? Golly. What you're so afraid of the Twitter. Mom, that's what it comes down to. That's what's almost astonishing. She didn't press him on any red flags. No, she didn't call out his country Dixon's. She didn't call out the fact that he called police and left a noose around his neck. None of that game up. No. How does that happen? Because this fits the narrative. Right. You need that story to be true. You through. And now, honestly you're playing the victim. It was just no win will always me. It is. And I have nothing against Robin Roberts. That's not it. But you're not the victim. You're supposed to do your job, right? People are now ticked right? I it was a thing. Listen, if I tell the truth, I know. It's the truth right now because it's the truth. She went on saying people are looking at the interview through the eyes of how did you not know? I did the interview forty eight hours before it came out that it was probably a hoax. I had. I had that information or knew what the brothers were alleging. Heck? Yeah. I would have asked him about that. I pride myself in being fair. I know how much work went into being balanced about what had happened in challenge. Him on certain things. He never really challenged him on anything though. No. That was it. It was like here's what some people are saying never the follow up. Can you understand? Why people are questioning your story because it doesn't make sense. No what I was angry about initially for we talked about it the day of the interview. Right. Was that she she didn't acknowledge what had happened and call him out. And when he's totally contradicted himself. Like, that's your job. It's like you just want to give him a platform to tell his story. That was all it was about it wasn't about asking what the truth was. Oh my gosh. And she concluded the challenging interview with beautiful Jesse. I forgot that part hard hitting journalism is that what she said. Yeah. At the end of the interview, if you listen to the whole thing, I don't need to do that. I don't think, but I think the best part of this is that the well the best part of how the Chicago police department handled this aside from actually like slow walking everything waiting until the day that this interview airs. To say, hey, by the way, we don't think he's telling the truth. Because that's when it started coming out. That's when sources started leaking Chicago media outlets where people were saying now, actually we're kind of looking at him as a possible suspect. But we already knew that. I mean, we knew that there was red flags out, but they had been Chicago police have been very very very careful about. Yeah. Because. Seen as racist. Right. They wanted to say, hey, we are handling this like we would any other reported crime. And right now, he is a victim. Until we're ready to say, he's not. Then Eddie Johnson the superintendent comes out with the sledgehammer and says, no, I'm sickened by this. Well, are they still trying to claim that he was in fact, a victim isn't that still the claim that's floating around out there? His defense team. There are still people who are out there saying that they are not going to believe it until they have concrete evidence. I think I know. I know you're always waiting to hear what Queen Latifah has to say she did an interview with Yahoo news where she says I'm going to wait until I see the concrete evidence of this. You know, you have the Chicago police department coming out and saying what he did was disgusting. We had a lot of evidence out there that you don't know about yet. But okay, the flat earth societies pledge their support to Jesse now. That's good. By the way, there's one that we landed on the moon site already. I don't remember this clip, but it was titled what people need to learn from this story Jesse. Here. This is the truth. This is the truth because. Everybody has their own idea. Some healing. Healing hurtful. But I just want some people members of the LGBTQ community young black children to know, how strong the arm my Josh because they're comfortable enough in their own skin that they don't have to make up hate crimes like you. Right. The piece came out last week. Maybe just the startup was too much. Caused him to do this victim. And oh my God. Hollywood reporter was talking about that the pressures of fame. That's he's really he's still is a victim. You see he's thirty two years old. He's not twelve not on a Disney show. But that whole thing of people just want to see what they want to see it's like, you can't you can't understand. Why people are questioning this sense who leaves a noose around their neck for forty five minutes. It doesn't call the cops. Right. He's thirty six by the way. Okay. Thank you, David. Speaking of hate crimes, totally different story here. But this is a mayor David small town in South Carolina. The mayor of that town says that she was the victim of a hate crime. And I think she's still sticking to the story. Darnall bird mcph pherson says she woke up one morning saw her car covered in a yellow substance. Now, you're not have any markings nothing. No, no message on their no swastikas. Nothing like that. It was just covered in this yellow substance. And she says, well, this is obviously hate crime. Her husband said, well, it looks like. Spray paint. It was a grainy substance like industrial spray foam used a patch concrete. That's what she told. Newsweek looks like little pebbles. They said stuff was on her husband's cars. Well, so she calls the cops. And in a statement to WBZ D, the mayor said love conquers hate and my husband, and I refuse to be intimidated by those who perpetrated this act of vandalism which classifies inactive hatred now. According to the police report told officers that she did have a possible suspect in mind at the time. Apparently someone had told her that someone wanted to kill her. Mcpherson told. Newsweek, she likened it as a hate crime. Because number one there's a history of racism in our town of Lamar South Carolina. Okay. Which put that up on the billboard as you. Go into town. Right. Welcome to Lamar. Come see the history of racism museum. And then in another statement, the mayor said during the seventies crosses were burned in the yard of our home. When my mother was involved in the civil rights movement on this very same corner in this very same front yard. That's why immediately saw this was covered in yellow paint. Immediately thought there back forty years after the fact they're back. Okay. Okay. Well, then. Apparently the cops came by. They didn't take a sample, and they are not investigating any further. You know, why because they're racist. Because it was pollen. Pollen pollen L E, N, polite and tree pollen. But here's the thing. You may not know. I I can't believe you didn't say this the bees. Yeah. Had little tiny mega hats on. It was pollen tree that was a hate crime. Okay. That's a little embarrassing. Now, isn't it? Oops. Oh my gosh. Wanted to bring up his story you guys. I don't know if you happen to see this over the weekend. I wish got sort of flipping back and forth Saturday night TV there was a basketball game. And there was a UFC fight on. I'm going back and forth. And I saw this happen this UFC fighter named Johnny Walker. Seriously. Busy redhead? No, he's not Johnny Walker red. No. But he wanted like thirty six seconds. He did this like flying me right to this guy's head. I mean Bob down, and he's the, you know, the ref calls the fight it's done. And so then he celebrated. Doing the worm lake fell straight from a standing position. Yeah. And said, I dislocated my shoulder. Oh my gosh. In the celebration. There's audio Joe Rogan..
"chicago police department" Discussed on WBT Charlotte News Talk
"If you want to send an Email, elrushbo at eibneTcom US, ladies and gentlemen. You don't often speak about the crumbling institutions that we all seemingly used to be able to rely on when it when it seemed like there was social and cultural deterioration, or when there was the rise of questionable illegal or immoral behavior. We always used to be able to handle and rely on the institutions to be a bulwark to provide a backstop to prevent the backslide from continuing. And we had that today. We saw an institution stand up and the certified self we saw an institution a man actually, representing an institution stand up and call something out for exactly what it was. We saw somebody unafraid of violating political, correct speech. We saw somebody unafraid of what the media might say in reaction to his statements. We saw somebody. Fearless. We saw somebody totally devoted to properly. Categorizing what we had been exposed to for the past week for exactly what it was without any attempt to spare anybody's feelings, we saw the institution of the Chicago police department stand up. And provide the clear right and wrong of what had gone on in the jussie smollet case. We didn't see any equivocating. We didn't see EMMY apologizing. We didn't see we didn't hear any please. Forgive me. If what I'm about to say is going to offend you. We had a man stand up and call out a person for running a hoax without any fear of recrimination this. I don't wanna make too big a deal of this. But it doesn't happen much anymore. And it's why it's stored the out like crazy to me. This man called out every fake artists that bought into this scheme from the get-go while acknowledging how fairly inaccurately the Chicago police did their job guy comes forward with the story and for forty seven of forty eight hours they treated him as a victim they treated him as telling the truth they treated him as though they believe what he was saying, and they indentured uncover what had happened to him. And in the last hour of their investigation. They finally got the fruits of all of their labor came forward all the searching of community video all of the interviews with witnesses. It finally came together and a found out they'd been punked. I am referring to these Chicago police superintendent, Eddie Johnson. Who to me is a is an example of the kind of fortitude, and courage that the times today call for you might think streaming an awfully big deal to me. Yes, I am making a big deal out of this. Because this doesn't happen enough. This guy called out presidential candidates for pilot on here without any evidence whatsoever. He called out a bunch of people being punked and fooled by an actor. He called out the actor himself as an African-American. How dare this man? Sully the civil rights legacy of this country by taking advantage of it for his own desire to get more money. This is the this is the this is an adult this police superintendent in Chicago is an adult. He's not a grownup child, and he's not trying to be friends with the perp and he's not trying to solve Sal anything. He's just a cut and dried this is. What happened we looked at it every which way we could. And I am personally offended. The Chicago police department is personally offended this man has wasted money. He has wasted resources. He has made fools of us. He has wasted our time. There was absolutely no sympathy for the perp. There was no, gee, we hope we find out what's bothering him. So that he can get the help that he there was none of that. So let's go to the audio soundbites. You can hear what I may. We'll start here with Eddie Johnson audio sound bite number four. He is the police superintendent equivalent of police Commissioner in New York City, by the way, did you notice who was not at this thing today? Where was the mayor? You talk about a photo op where was the mayor Rahm Emanuel. Now, I know there's a mayoral election coming up soon may have been a factor. Where was he? I guarantee you if the perp had been white, I think the mayor would have been there. Do you agree with me on that? I think so. I think of a white guy had run this hawks. You'd had the mayor at all whole lot of Chicago politicians showing up and I might also ask why did they allow smollet to turn himself in with his lawyers at five AM? Where was the raid of his apartment with nineteen to twenty six body? Armor clad agents. Fully armed, and where was the media in tow, Joe witness this? Predawn raid of smell, let's house. None of that happened. Like it happened with Roger stone. Now, admittedly, this is the Chicago police department, and maybe they are not as corrupt as Robert Muller's. Investigators. But man, what a s- drinking different say lasts Maleta show up and they allow smell let to get there before five o'clock in the morning when the media isn't there? They don't tell the media. He's coming in at five o'clock they allow him his privacy. But Eddie Johnson on loaded in his press conference. They here we go the first sound anyone, especially an African American man. Use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations out could someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol and CNN opportunity to manipulate the symbol to further his own public profile. The make things worse accusations within this phony attack received national attention for weeks celebrities, news commentators, and even presidential candidates weighed in on something. That was choreographed by an actor as if to say what? Bush idiots won a bunch of fools. You fell for something choreographed by an actor. You know, how he started his press conference? He started this press conference chiding the media. I wish the real crime in this town got anywhere near the attention. This event is getting he pointed the media he looked right at him and said where are you a win real crime is happening in this town. If the real crime that we're battling in this Talbot. Get one smidgen of the attention this hoax event has gotten in. Maybe we can do something about it. He just unloaded here. He was very reasonable sounding. But folks, we do not get this kind of adult behavior. We don't even get it in the department of Justice. We certainly don't get it anywhere in the media. There aren't any adults left in the media. You wonder about all these reporters like what's his name? Jim kosta? Don, lemon all of these irresponsible. No, nothing's they have bosses where are the adults in the news networks who are embarrassed. By what they're reporters are doing. Where are the adults at all these networks who today ought to be livid with rage that every damn whether their reporters fell for this without first looking into where are the adults in the news business during the Covington kids hoax wherever the adults in the news business after it was discovered that the Duke lacrosse case was a hoax. There aren't any adults anymore. This is my point. There aren't any adults. All we have is partisan children adults who have not grown up. And that's why the police superintendent Chicago's stands out to me. I hope I'm not ruining this guy's reputation by speaking for him. Yeah. I can just see his office phone ring. Hey, hey, sober dinner. Rush Limbaugh is praising you all all the Super Bowl. And that's a lasting. I did odd. I hope I'm not doing. Well, you know, I I I have. Supposedly ruined journalists reputations praising their work when it's when it's called for. Here's the next bite. From Eddie Johnson superintendent of police Jakob, we have two more. This is. This is what they're mad about. You're worried the hate crime business is gonna take a hit. Listen to this one. It's me attempted to gain attention by sending a false letter that relied on ratio, homophobic, and political language hold it. Stop the tape and req- that we now have small let wrote the letter it actually did right? Dealing smell. Let got the magazine and cut the letters out of the magazine. And the. The letter that was sent to the show. It was sent to empire. It said you will die black, and then it is slang for gay person. And that was supposed it had a white substance in it that was supposed to be anthrax. Of course, turned out to be ground up aspirin and smell. Let got mad that the producers of empire didn't take that more seriously. He wanted to set the stage where all kinds of people are really focused on and care about or hate jussie smollet here, we have a classic example of a guy in social media, desperate for fame and doesn't have nearly the fame that he wants doesn't have nearly the income that he wants. So he stages a couple of hoaxes here trying to get paid and trying to get noticed. And he plays the media like a stratovarius. He plays the American left leg stratovarius for three days. The media reported on this letter, but very confusingly. They never did indicate whether the police thought that smollet had written the letter or whether the letter was legit. Well, it turns out that police superintendent Eddie Johnson has informed us that smell let composed this fake letter and send it here is the bite again from the top Smolin attempted to gain attention by sending a false letter that relied on ratio, homophobic, and political language when that didn't work smell it pay thirty five hundred dollars to stage this attack and draft Chicago's reputation through the mud and the process, and why this don't was orchestrated by Smolin because he was dissatisfied with his salary. So he concocted a story about being attacked. They put the national spotlight on Chicago for something that is both agree. Just and untrue is simply shameful. I'm also concerned about what this means moving forward for hate crimes. My concern is that hate crimes were now publicly be met with a level of skepticism there. Previously been having Mr. superintendent they already are. Because of all the previous hoaxes is that you didn't. Mention starting in Ferguson, Missouri. Wing, then moved to Baltimore, Freddie, gray, Michael Brown in Ferguson. The Duke lacrosse case. The left is nothing but phony hate crimes. Phony alleged crimes phony charges made up stories like the tea party guy that shot up the movie theater in Denver. The left is famous for these. And it gets me off on another subject. I need to circle back to they know these things probably aren't true. But they want them to be. And that's why they report them true. They think this is what America is it's not look at it. Just like the Rolling Stone university of Virginia rape story turned out to be totally made up. Absolutely one hundred percent made up when the reporter is confronted. She says, well, it may it may not be true here. But it's true. Elsewhere, and I wanted to raise consciousness of it. So in the mind of the American left, these crimes are happening everywhere. Even if the smollet case isn't real it's real elsewhere. And we must raise consciousness. So Mr. superintendent that horses out of the barn. The left is already this part of the agenda making these things up smell that made it up smell. Let's an anti-trump is a never-trumper hates Trump. He made it up because he hates Trump wants more money. Is it typical left-wing democrat today? By the way, he paid these guys with a check. Guy's an idiot. In addition to everything else. He paid them with a check. I wonder I wonder what the four. Know, the the note payment for fake hate crime. But what what did he call it? On the check. It's like making a prank phone call with your caller ID on one more sound bite. From the police superintendent, Eddie Johnson reporters. And when did you all figure out something didn't add up here?

That is so so we've got established that he was sources at CPAP are that he was carrying a sandwich when he returned to the building after the attack. Fact, or at least it's reported reported from source and Chicago PD, we've got them not releasing the a request correct point. But we also have the police are scouring footage around stores. See because it turns out it wasn't actually like a rope. Like, you would see a hangman's noose. It was more of a thin clothesline type thing. Right.

Twin loser attacks going on in Chicago. Yes. There are oh, that's a fact. You have to look that up.

"Jamie asked, shouldn't there be a national group or board who could provide oversight over individual police departments? They could be an objective trusted advisory board whose judgments both sides would trust and accept and to whom and aggrieved local citizens group could appeal Paolo tweeted police forces with their training, transform them from people's defenders into a communities foes with this stance, the police force is not your friend, even if you are a regular law abiding citizen. So maybe trainings part of it. And Hector emailed the UK and other European Union countries have unarmed on-duty police officers, and we should have more unarmed cops to Patrick Smith. I'm not sure if anyone is advocating that any officers in Chicago disarm themselves, but I wonder what people are suggesting. I mean, is there a conversation about lasting change after the look Lon McDonald case, or are there still other loose ends with this that need to be tied up first before we talk about form? Well, there are. The the video of McDonald's shooting prompted the department of Justice to come in and investigate the Chicago police department which has been done in other cities. And actually our state government and the city of Chicago are are in the very final moments of sort of hammering out a consent decree to make big changes over the next decade to the Chicago police department. The police union here is very opposed to that effort. They think that this reform is not going to help. It's gonna make us less safe. Many activists thinks this is a really good, you know, a really big step. And then of course, there are some who are who are skeptical. This is going to be the change that we really need. And I will say one thing that has been talked about a lot here that some of the comments you've gotten have alluded to is, is the idea of having officers in neighborhoods that they really know. Something that I've heard from a lot of people is that there are white officers Chicago's a very. Aggregated city that there are white officers who really didn't have much interaction with people of color before they joined the force, and then they are sort of dropped first thing for, you know, as soon as they're out of the academy into some of the toughest neighborhoods in the city where they are encountering and working with people of color, and they don't, they don't know what they don't know what they're doing essentially, and they're overmatched and and sort of cultural differences and blind spots are making the problem worse here. That's something that that some people say would would would help out in the city to have more represent representation have police officers policing in neighborhoods where they themselves live. I'm Joshua Johnson. You're listening to one a.. Patrick one more quick question for you. I know we're low on time, but Aaron wrote on our website,.
