A Conversation on the Connection Between Police and Community
"Dion did LeBron James ever follow up with you on that request. No. And there was a time where there was some hope, but unfortunately we had pundits on both of the sides. I'm not a political person. I can't stand the extreme left or the extreme right. Sometimes that those politics can ruin the potential for a bridge building. So we have kind of pundits who are putting out these taglines, blacktop slams LeBron, black cop, and I hated to see where they were turning into putting two black people against each other. And then we also had some people in the media. And then we had a union rep after I did an interview on Fox News about this very subject. Come on after me and say, oh, LeBron James needs to be arrested. I'm like, for what? He was just expressing himself. He just needs to be educated. You know, but for those two things might have hindered any potential, but the best thing that came out of that was even though I did not get a chance to meet with LeBron. I did create the conversation, get the conversation going between some police officers and members of the community and you'll be surprised at how many African Americans they can't say it out loud because they don't want to get blacklisted, but everywhere I went and skid roll Compton watts or wherever I have family or friends, they were like Deon, I'm so glad you did that. And it's sad they can't say it out loud, but they were really proud of what happened. And of course, I had some haters. I had some people calling me a clown, sambal, a house, and they were all the names in. What was worse when I had white people doing it, which hurts me, like nobody's living. When white people are trying to tell me how I'm supposed to think, that just drives me insane. As a black man, you shouldn't, you know, that gave me generational deja vu, because my great, great grandfather, as a black man, they told him that he couldn't own businesses. And we couldn't walk on the sidewalk and because he chose to run a business in a town where he wasn't supposed to and walking a sidewalk, a 16 year old white child killed him. So I thank you for not putting a bullet in my head, but no one's going to tell me as a black man who I can be what I can speak to and how I feel. So those are the things that came out of it that were negative. But for the most part, I had a lot of support for people and it was a blessing. It was a blessing.

Caller: Life at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department
"Bob, you're way out of your lane. You have no idea what you're talking about. Okay? Let me explain something to you, okay? I was on the chair of support by LA county sheriff's department. We trained everybody in the state of California. Okay, I was a training guy. And let me explain this to you. When they decided that the COVID here and all of a sudden, all these police officers left, the ones that had tenure, the ones that knew what they were doing. The ones who had the type a personality and then things changed. What happened is that they have been recruiting people in the old days ex GIs. Well, guess what? Things change. And now the people in charge, if you get in a fight before you go into the department, you're not going to make it in the academy. You're not going to be invited, okay? They want people who are passive and do nothing and follow orders. Okay? People are dramatically smaller now. Why? Because they had to take certain things out of the test. The recruitment for all departments used to have to drag a guy out of a car. It's a dummy. It weighs a 160 pounds. Oh gosh, that's too heavy. Let's not do that anymore. Okay? They just have to climb a 6 foot ball. That's not, no, no, that doesn't, we don't do that anymore. And so on and so on. Okay, people who boxing, they took it out academy, okay? Ellie county shares apartment. They run the academy for every small agency within the county. Now here's how it works, okay? You put those softs in positions. And then, like when I worked the station, you put in a policy where if you stop a black person in Compton and he goes, no matter what you did or didn't do, and he goes to your death sergeant and says, this person called me a racial name. That goes in your book, okay? Two or three of those and guess what? You'll never promote. You're considered a bad guy. All right? So guys, stop working, and more retirement. Here,
THIS Is What Concerns Doug the Most
"But what is disturbing to me? And it's become more and more of a trend in looking at these, the wording, the language, is that the left and the media have taken a small portion of what is happening over the last few years and completely forgotten about the Democrats or ignore the Democrats rhetoric and language when it comes to elections when it comes to how we deal with each other, the civility, how we deal with each other, how we communicate with each other. And this is what concerns me the most. Now look, some out there on the left side, well this is a what about ism? And no, it's not. It's an honest perspective, because what we don't get from the mainstream media now is that honest perspective of why is it always attack a president Trump or attack what he says and take everything down and he says or Republicans say or bringing it back in all honesty January 6th. They use that is trying to paint an entire movement. Look, if people did things wrong, which they did on January 6th, they're being prosecuted for it. I think they should be if they're going to the government should get those cases done and not hold it like they're holding it. We've talked about that before. When you do wrong, you pay for doing wrong. And I think that's the issue that we're looking at here. And for those who didn't do anything wrong, for those who've been caught up, they need to be like, you know, that needs to stop. But to bring it up continually as the whole Trump Republican maga, whatever word they want to use now is completely undermining people's faith and confidence not only in the government, but also faith in Compton elections. And they're trying to make this out is that if the Republicans are the ones that started this.

I remember in 1967 when art lavaux turned it over and played that I was just in heaven. Yeah, I came out and double shot, of course. And Brandon turned 81 Tuesday. Yeah, same day that darlene loved it, both grew up in LA, but darlene was born there, Brent was Shreveport, but his family moved to LA when he was a teen. And he was quite the athlete. He was an award winner at Compton high. Yeah, so and I thought, just catch you on the rebound was absolute best. So 888-876-5593. We have Johnny Dee, who had a question. Compton, hi. Yeah. Straight outta Compton. Straight outta Compton. Anyhow, listen. So one thing before I get to this song and I'm not going to take up too much more time. But did you say Enrico Fermi and Fermi is buried over there? Yes, yes and awkward. Yes. You might blow the place up to me. No, I think it's too late for that. Then you have something to do with the Manhattan Project. Well, yeah, but I mean, he's been gone quite a while. He created the world's first nuclear reactor, and that was in Chicago, died in 1954, and he made the atomic bomb. Well, he was the architect of the atomic bomb. And but the first nuclear reactor was the Chicago pile one. And he was one of the few physicists to excel in theoretical physics and experimental physics and he won the 1938 Nobel Prize. That was for induced radioactivity and discovery of trans uranium elements, so you know where that was leading. So yes. No. Fermi was Italian. He was born in Rome. And born in Rome, and he was an Italian citizen until 1944 in an American citizen from 44 to 54. Yeah, he worked with dopamine. Well, who didn't? You know, as far as that, yes, he served under Jay Robert Oppenheimer on the general advisory committee, which advised the atomic energy commission on nuclear matters. And after the detonation of the first Soviet fission bomb, which is after World War II was 49, he strongly opposed the development of a hydrogen bomb on moral and technical grounds, and in fact, did after they sing with a dead. Well, right. And so he testified on Oppenheimer's behalf at the hearing. And the hearing resulted in Oppenheimer's security clearance being revoked, but be that as it may. He didn't a number of very interesting things. They won the war. Well, yeah. And so, and of course, he was a very big deal in Chicago. Well, I imagine they would be. And I don't guys. They're valuable to the United States. Now, on a song, Raleigh. Yes. Now, you know how I like, I like to listen to James Taylor. I like James. He's the one that inspired me for she's got me on hold. When he did, she thinks I still care. Yes. Okay. That's where I got this. She got me on hold from James. She seems to admire the way you sing it. And then, so all this in the YouTube music, that's what I normally listen to. And I was listening to she thinks I still care. And then after it normally what they do, they'll play another song by that artist. And what came on was this song called bartenders blues. All right? That's a country song. And I know I heard a year ago, okay? And but I don't know who made it. So I was thinking, if you could play a little bit of bartenders blues from YouTube, music? And I bet you would know who originally made bartenders blues. Now, by the way, let's talk about she thinks I still care a moment. You know who wrote it? We talked about a one night and said a bunch of people covered it. Well, George Jones had the first hit with it, but Dickie Lee wrote it. The guy who did patches. Okay. Well, he made a lot of money. A lot of people covered. James Taylor is the originator of bartender's blues. He wrote it. Who? James Taylor wrote bartenders blues. Get out of here. Yeah, he wrote it. It was first released in May of 77, and then in December 77, he did a duet with George Jones doing it. No kidding. I thought George Jones made it. No, George Jones was after. With James Taylor was a duet, but no, the record was written by James Taylor. Could you play that song for me, Raleigh? I love the way he did it. James Taylor's bartenders blues. All right, let's I don't know if it's on this computer. I'm going to look. And if it is, of course, why not? So the way he nails them country songs, you know? I mean, George Jones all in country artists show their country. But James Taylor, he could do anything. He could do anything. All right. Country, funk, soul. You know, the girls for normal, in my opinion. Let's see what I got here. Yeah, I got it. It's right here. All right. I say disappointedly, but it is right here, so I will be playing it. You better get your hands on it. I don't think so. You don't have a good voice when you hear one. Well, be that man. Thanks for calling. Appreciate it. No, I probably, thank you. There was a dream still record I liked it. It was a little soft ditty. Summer's here. Yeah, it's a good little record for the summer, actually. Not inclined to play it, but it is a good little record for the summer. I'll play bartenders please. What the hell? 888-876-5593 Eduardo was in midway. Oh, mail call back in Chicago. All right.

Trump Makes a Return to Washington, DC
"Donald Trump was in Washington D.C. on Tuesday to speak about at the American first policy institute about the need for putting policies just like safety first. I mean, this isn't that hard, right? It's not that hard to say. You know what we need to care? About American safety. We need to make sure that we don't have drug dealers on the street or coming into the country. We need to make sure that we police our neighborhoods. All of our neighborhoods that means the south side of Chicago and Compton out in California and parts of New York City and Brooklyn and The Bronx and all these places where the police have backed off. I mean, they're not allowed to do their jobs. That's part of the issue here. And so what Trump is saying is perfectly normal and logical and the idea that the Democrats are somehow fighting this. That's a huge problem. They're fighting everything. They're fighting the idea that only a woman can have a baby. That's how weird it's gone.

How Democrats Stopped One Man's Fight Against Gang Violence
"Chico, we've got shooting in homicides up over the last couple of years year to year about 40% and almost all of the victims as you know are black and Hispanics. Why in your opinion have we had this increase in shootings and murders in the last couple of years? It's definitely political for me because I can tell you what happened to me in the city of Compton. I formed a continent and I did this, put crips in Paris rouge together. To stop all the gay mothers in the city and had a program I had this work and it worked. But guess what happened for political reasons, the political reasons they stopped my program and content. I was meeting with first and started off with four crypts and four blood at the end of the day I was meeting with 3000 crypts and pyruvate. So I went in front of the city council, which is I can say that it's all Democrats. And what happened, they denied my program.

"Ten of it is still none of. It's been handed out and we've got their number program. What was the program we were talking about yesterday. There's one of those giant relief programs that most of the money hasn't been handed out. Nobody knows how to get it. It's insufferably complex. The rest of it. I wonder now. I don't know where it is. I i certainly don't think it's as simple as sitting in a bank account somewhere. I don't. I don't know how the whole thing works though. I wonder if nancy pelosi said what we'll do is procure a trillion dollars. We'll say well right it into a bill but then we'll never get around actually printing it or procuring it or giving it out and everybody'll just kind of look at their shoes embarrassed not talk about it anymore. You wouldn't be howling for now in the case of Landlords and renters people might be howling about it. But i don't think the schools are going to be howling about it because they didn't need it they didn't need the money at all. It's just extra money to wash around in bureaucracy anyway. Well and it's got so confusing. Who's entitled to what in through. What means that. I think if you could nail down everybody who had money coming. According to the various relief packages and alerted them to it. They might ask for a bunch of it but i think a huge share maybe even a majority of these trillions of dollars. They've written laws about people. Don't even know. Who would you call though the superintendent of the school. You're you're going to get two hundred million dollars. You haven't received a check yet. Who do you call. Well i'd call the county who tell me you got to call the state until you gotta call the feds who tell me you gotta call the county spend the rest of my day like cisa fold driving myself insane who's smart. That's listening the trillions of dollars that have been spent but none well has been allocated but hasn't actually gone out the door yet. Where is that money. has it been printed yet. Is it in an account somewhere. It's probably waiting for the treasury to actually issue a payment now. We're getting the paper money which is confusing on. Its face but fantasy expenditures. Printing is a it's not literally printed so your school. Has one hundred billion dollars coming for kovin relief. Even though cova is over and they they. It was all ally Ventilation systems both wipes clorox wipes and all the other stuff They got a hundred million dollars. Company th th the. The printing presses aren't going to print out one hundred million one dollars one hundred dollar bill bringing tuna in a bag so they did you start writing so just shows up an account and exact re-jigger the federal books to say. Yeah had one hundred billion dollars exists today that didn't exist yesterday and we give it a school so it just makes our debt bigger right and goes to the debt..

If there's going to be a law congress has got pass it then. Come and ask us if it's concepts constitutional sayeth the supreme court. Hey mr your honor sir and amarante and the place to this guy. He's a tweaker. He steals he's not paid rent since the first month is far as it can tell he's never held a job and none of this has anything to do even remotely with covert.

He goes to my church but he hasn't paid rent in six months. And if. I can't pay my bank for my loan on this rental house. I'm gonna lose it. So why does he get a priority over me is perfectly reasonable question. Joe biden said and i quote the bulk of constitutional scholarship. Says that it's not likely to pass constitutional muster. He said that two days ago. But we're gonna do it anyway. And why is he doing it. That question can be answered easily as he's being pressured from the left including the democratic congressman from new york who i never heard of named mondale jones slamming the biden administration yesterday for a an empathy deficit. Not understanding that these people need help and after this announcement this unconstitutionally unconstitutional announcement was made today.

"It was like and i'm a west coast. Do so when. I first heard ray kwan and goes face i'm like god damn day killing it. I mean that album for me. I love that album. That's just like certain albums you know. When i first heard quicks first album you know but demule dimuro's can hear it around the country outcast when you hear all of these different things at that time you know like damn you. It was just so much music for that decade along and so a lot of that music was truly the soundtrack of you know my adolescence in up to so you've been making music all through the nineties. I hadn't been making music. But i've been you know you know. I've always loved music always so i was wrapping early nineties. Free style in writing here and there but nothing to the degree of body ended up late nineties my writing ability. Immediate be able to go into you know star going and dabbling here and there were different. You know writing songs sitting down. But i'd always you know love music. I knew how to play trombone. Knew how to play trumpy. Since i was in middle school so the first person ever introduced me to music was my mother you know. She played throughout the churches. As i was real real real young and chicago and i remember you know i remember. We was very very young and she would just pull up and she could just start playing the piano. And i said why momma. How do you know which to play. Well as my soul. I hearing so i swear you know now looking back. I realized that my momma didn't know how to read music. She played it by ear so she played oregon and she would put it. just play. and my momma. How do you know which one i used to always ask my mother that and she just play by ear and so whenever our by the time you know i will go into band class. I started playing trombone always had i. Share always battled everybody in one first year so from there. I learned my boy. He was showing me. Abc allah keys trumpet. And so i just picked up trumpet naturally. So i'm always loved music and then you know in that time in an area you know you had to black sheep and you know what i'm saying. You know you had lost boys. You had all of these different groups coming from east to west and so dj was real big back then and so my stepfather. He had all of these records. I mean tons of records bobby. Womack brenton wood percy sledge. Hell melvin a blue nose betty right just all of these records and may god forgive me. I used to take his records you. I'm in their plans scratching them up. And so you know i. I've always loved music. Always a shame when you say that they'd like rap used to have so much more of a reason to be concerned with what came before it you know both because like at in one thousand nine hundred ninety. It's easier for people to remember music before rap but then also just the fact that you know sampling was huge now. Nobody wants to use the samples because they want all the money from the records and stuff like that said. I mean when. I'm saying these records and i'm saying is i'm live. I'm literally. I could see all the memories with it. As i'm saying you know you gotta imagine when ill mattie came out. Was that ninety ninety. Two or ninety four. I think it was ninety two. I think it was early. Nineties real well when ill matic just imagine ill matty. I'm listening. Ill matic incompetent. So you know i had homey. They plan sell sale. They got i got home. He's playing you know m. c. eight and i love him. See a compass warning. And i'm playing cosmo's warning i'm playing. I'm playing all of this. But i'm play. Ill matic wolfgang. I'm playing biggie. On playing jay z's reasonable doubt so my influence from both sides was just like damn. Because i love soulful music that a lot of those samples had from the east coast. And i love the that was here on the west coast in so it was just like. Is this musical thing for me. I've always loved music period for sure. So i'm sure that like the nineties before you actually got signed and all that. I'm sure it wasn't all smooth. Sailing was was a ups and downs during that time period. Definitely man it was a lot of ups and downs. You know at that time. My mother ended up moving from sitting in elm and we moved to tamarin. And you know from at that time. I really just got into you. Know stealing cars in you. Know you know went you know went to you know. What is that juvenile hall a few times or whatever and then by the time. My mother moved on competent in iran. Be i was just full blown. Just pretty much in the streets at that time so When i look back at that time there was a lot of good times but it was. It was a lot of bad times to seeing different loved ones that you know getting killed different people inside of the drug business fighting just different type of thing. You see wars breaking out throughout compton. Big hood wars breaking out so content in those days in at time era you know debt music was the soundtrack for a lot of our lives but a lot took place you know during that time you know you look back in early nineties in during that rodney king situation in all of that that happened you know. The whole unrest took and broke over the city. You think a lot of this music was the backdrop today. So i'm looking back at that and i'm looking back through that whole decade then when you have the d. Mx is come along and you know. God bless today of man i mean. Dms so many of us loved the amax. you know He was just man just. He spoke to buy him being from there. He spoke to many dues on the west coast. In a way that hadn't been spoken. I think for you know by a lot of different artists east coast. That's why he so loved here. Yeah energy that sort of wimpy on what coast from. You'd never heard something like that. Yeah you never. It was like a bomb dropped at first albums it was like a bomb dropped all over the city. They was just playing are never forget man. I'm like i never forget. I had a thirty two ounce magnum in mom used. I may you dead new. Mx his whole album. And i remember we just played it back to back to back to back. We sit rolling blunts and we just like damn who is is and we. I remember when we are seen and we was like. where's he from. Where's he we didn't know where he was from. You know we were so young and then we found out eventually from new york. He's like we had higher than that like you. At so many people would be like fake angry on songs. Yeah but then you had him whereas they really felt the sadness and you know it was deep deep zog forget and then the second album so when you looking at that time when you look at masterpiece in that era in all of the music out of that you know that time through from the south he was one of those engineers out of the south that made music that was relatively relative to a lot of west coast dudes and the lifestyle that they live was almost a lot similar to a lot of ours and is just so dope how he was able to integrate it and make it happen then show so many dues entrepreneurial spirit and his understanding the dynamics of you know him being assad to gain from independent standpoint and understanding how to monetize in a way that hadn't been seen before. Where were you during the riots memories yet. I remember exactly where i was back then. Downtown on compton boulevard. there was a circuit city. So when the rise. I broke out What is this occasion or leander. There was a store on the left hand side. And i never forget. My mom's had hornet and we went inside of the store. Man i never forget. I must've took almost a whole crater beer. And put it in the back of their then. We went to another store. We put different food in there. Then we went to another liquor store so in the home. He's told me. Oh we go over here hit circuit city but they had they had bolted it up and everything like that so i remember company was on fire ryan down counter boulevard. You've seen everything on fire. Just i never forget that. Did it feel like the destruction in your own community did feel revenge on the police looking back at it. In hindsight it was revenge into police. You know you know at.

I've been talking to a couple people You know it might not be out of the question for me to step back in the late model this year. Occasion comes up. I mean i you know. I think it was two years ago. James called me and said hey. Let's go let's go raise somewhere. And i'm like all right you know i hadn't had a late model in twenty years but let's do it and We had a plan. We said we're gonna we're gonna run to. We're gonna get a long time. Because i love that place up there. We always ran good and But we're gonna go up on friday and we're gonna practiced because i haven't been in late model in twenty years so we go up. There reigns the entire day. We go back the next day. We get to fifteen minute practices. And that's it. And i hadn't been in late my in allah it was It was it was it was twenty three twenty four late models up there of course kris van dyke. He's been you know he was winning. And everything and We ended up qualifying outside. Coal and lead took the lead on like the eight blocks from chris and everybody told us they said man. He's a dirty driver and you know he's gonna run the race tracks man. We ran side beside fifty two laps and With about three last ago we were still stabbing assigned. The caution came out and he just edged out a little bit so we we went back on the green. And i was starting outside and i had to battle the sega landed on finishing second and kristen. I'm down yet. He's like and we'd never touched the entire time. And he said i'm telling you he's. That's the hardest. I have had to run late modeling in honolulu. I wanted to. Yeah i want to know what else. On noah oh my gosh man and it was fun because my daughters were there in course. I retired when they started preschool and they couldn't go with me anymore. It for me. It was time to make a change.

Sponsors was pretty successful in late model and One of the sponsors asked him one day then he said what do we need to do to get that next level with where you just gotta get in front of the people that can make it happen and so three days later he called me up and says hey About a race car.

Nurse shares her experience treating COVID-19 patients in Miami and Los Angeles
"L. A county became the first in the nation to hit more than one million cases since the beginning of the pandemic. I see you. Availability remains at 0% at most hospitals. Cherie Perry Smith is a traveling ICU nurse who arrived in L a last week and she stationed at Martin Luther King Jr Community Hospital in south L. A, and she recovered from having Cove it back in October. Welcome to press play, Cherie and Welcome to L A. Thank you, Madeline. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you and this is your fourth station for covert treatment. I believe you were in Atlanta. Miami in Texas. How does the situation in l A compared to those cities? It's really rough. It was probably most comparable to Miami. Honestly, um, is, um I see you capacity is just it's beyond capacity. Um you know him, Okay. It was a 10 bed. I see you, and then it was expanded to 20. And now there are 35. We're still expanding. So it serves a community of 1.8 million in Compton. So it's It's really hard and Nations are The communities being Rod's very heavily. So it reminded me of a lot of Miami. Just limited resource is and people coming in really late in coming in. Really, really Siddiq. Oh, right, because they're putting off treatment because they know that there's very little capacity, right? Right. So people are coming in already, you know, with Multiple organ systems failing. Wow. So when you're comparing it to Miami, what do you mean by that? Take us back to the Miami days and what it looked like I was in Miami over the summer, and that's actually where o'clock clothing on while I was there. I mean, I didn't cover till October, but it was in Miami. It was it was like working. The ICU is normally pretty stable, like you is not like working in the ER. So when I've been er nurse, too, but I preferred ICU because it's always controlled. There's this uncontrolled is done stable, multiple cold's going off with multiple patients. It's a war zone on DATs. What Miami felt like and L a certainly Was very reminiscent of that period of time in my career where the patients are so unpredictable, and it's just when you have multiple people coding at the same time. It's very hard to give them the resources they need, because you're stretched very thin. And so that is what you're seeing now in L. A All right, um, lovely. We have PPE here, Which is my blessing. Just because Miami we were given one gown for patient per day. I was in one in 95 masks for three weeks. I get on in 95 mask every time I come on shift, so I'm grateful for that here, and I can use gowns one time and one time out. I'm grateful that you know people have generously donated to this hospital on we have peopie. But the patients are very, very stick. You know, we have patients in their thirties there. We have mothers. We have fathers. We have just people and it's really sad. You're on zoom calls, and they're saying goodbye and It's very hard. Were you expecting that? MLK has been on CNN. They've been told it the epicenter of the epicenter in L. A On. Guy knew all this going into the assignment, but I think because I had been in Atlanta for a little bit, and that's home. I kind of got used tol like, you know the stability of working in a stable covert unit again and So I was a little triggered when I got here. I had to take a moment to kind of be compressed because, um It took me time, you know, especially after having cold it, you know, to see those patients like that, cause I certainly thought that could have been me too, too. So, um my first night was rough. Umm Cold's going off and I looked like I was, um, orientation precept. It was amazing. All the nurses and staff physicians are amazing at the hospital it working so hard and Even stretched so thin that they said they sent in the National Guard to help us as well. So it's The first night I had to take a moment of my precept and say, Hey, I just need to take a breather. Get out my Mass because I felt those flashbacks coming back from working in Miami and And so many people die in a day. You know, it's really hard. Yeah, it really is. Especially since as you say, we saw these images you know, on the news from Miami over the summer and in other cities as well, New York, Of course in the spring. And yet, here we are. Almost a year into it. You hit the nail on the head. You know, it's like you think you're prepared and you never are. You know, I remember Washington when it was happening December in China, And then I watched in Italy and I watched the New York and Hey, And here we are, Like you said, a year out coming up on one year and and there's no break. It's just you feel like you don't get any respite. No. No rest from from the chaos and I mean, we're even in Texas. When I was in Texas. They had a mobile morgue Did er there? And, um You know, it's and I'm hoping with the vaccines rolling out, you know things will we kind of get herd immunity, But even nurses, there's physician. There's people that are very skeptical about it. And I've had both of my doses now, but I think that that's gonna be a problem with getting the pandemic under control is the apprehension to give back to native Can you explain that to me
