On November twenty seventh one a former city supervisor wheedled his way into Mosconi office and loudly argued with him inside then Cobra teeny heard four staccato POPs ops. She forced herself to calm down. Her mind was playing tricks on her. It was just her anxiety. After the tragedy with Jim Jones to reassure herself Kober teeny glanced out the window to confirm that a car had backfired minutes later Koper teeny admitted a city official into the mayor's office and discovered that her initial instincts had been correct former city supervisor Dan white at murdered the mayor and he wasn't finished finished killing Dan White was born on September second nineteen forty six and grew up in San Francisco California. He was the son of a firefighter in a conservative of blue collar family. His Irish Catholic routes were an important part of the cultural identity he carried into adulthood white attended a parochial school where he was instilled with the churches values especially regarding sexuality he earned good grades and was a successful athlete. He seemed like a compassionate intelligent young man he was going places white served a single year in the Vietnam War his brief stint and service nervous helped shape his attitudes towards social justice. The brave black soldiers who served alongside him instilled in him progressive attitudes toward race he also began to reevaluate some of his long held negative attitudes about l._G._B._T._Q.. People thanks to a few servicemen white discovered to be gay white was in his early twenties when he returned to the U._S.. And join these San Francisco police force he found that he wasn't the only person person who had changed during the War San Francisco was growing more diverse by the day World War Two marked the beginning of the city's transformation into a gay haven as the military discharged just thousands of gay and suspected gay soldiers newly outed men were processed through the golden city then faced with the decision to return home in shame or build a new anonymous life in the city many stayed in San Francisco beginning in the Nineteen Fifties San Francisco became a Mecca for progressive groups like the beat Knicks and later the hippies in nineteen sixty one Jose Saria and openly gay drag Queen became the first I openly gay person to run four and lose a public office when he saw a city supervisor position by the nineteen seventies the city's counterculture thrives and l._G._B._T._Q.. Community sprung up in neighborhoods like the historic George Castro district like Dan White Most San Francisco cops were Irish Catholics and in the late nineteen sixties in early seventies it was sadly common for police officers to brutalize utilize gay and black civilians institutional violence against minorities was common throughout the United States but San Francisco in particular was famous for it's regressive brutal policing one day while White was on duty he saw another white officer handcuff a black prisoner and then beat the man mercilessly white intervened saving the defenseless inmate after the incident white filed a report in which he named the offending officer for crossing the thin Blue Line White was shunned by his fellow police officers. He soon felt he had no choice but to quit the force in his late Twenties in nineteen seventy four twenty eight year old white followed in his father's footsteps to become a firefighter he was a natural fit in thrived during his training period. Even as his classmates struggled racist leaders at the fire station had a long standing in practice of accepting black students into the training program then flunking them out this allowed the Fire Department to technically comply with anti-discrimination laws while still keeping the San Francisco Fire Department primarily whites only organization but White was strongly opposed to racism and one said the sooner we get down to eliminating discrimination against any people the better we'll all be those words would later approved hypocritical but during his training white personally tutored three black firefighter trainees who were in danger of failing the on boarding program he also put together a petition and encouraged other firefighters to sign an advocate kate for them. Ultimately the three firefighters he helped all past their exams and white graduated at the top of his class in nineteen seventy seven thirty year old white was called to a burning apartment building and learned that woman and her baby were trapped on the seventh floor braving the inferno white rescued both from the flames.

A politically active police officer friend introduced the suddenly famous white eight to consultant race loan who was tasked with nominating the next Democratic District Eight city supervisor candidate Sloan a gay man was soon taken with the hero firefighter he didn't hide his sexual orientation and white didn't treat it as a big deal in an interview Sloan explained being gay was never discussed even though he had to have known about it. It just wasn't an issue. It's hard hard to say why why chose to get into politics but he was beloved by his firefighter and former police department colleagues who pushed him to run he supported progressive causes like affirmative action gun control and economic policies friendly to blue collar workers and unions but his home in district aid was situated in one of San Francisco's most crime ridden neighborhoods and as a former cop white ran on a platform of law order white repeatedly called to restore San Francisco to a more traditional homogeneous culture on the trail. He said I'm not going to be forced to out of San Francisco by splinter groups of radicals social deviates and incorrigibles. These statements didn't go over well with San Francisco's diverse population but white didn't need to win over the entire city he just needed to convince the voters of district eight to support him and because his home district was populated primarily by conservative religious voters like himself White was wildly popular with his base on November third nineteen seventy seven white one his seat says district eight city supervisor iser a landslide at the age of thirty one. He was the youngest person to ever win the position. His wasn't the only record broken other districts elected the boards first black woman the first Chinese unease American supervisor and the first openly gay man within days of his victory. Dan White soon found himself invited to a series of televised debates and roundtable conversations white was a prominent.

Let's take a look back at his early. Life Harvey Milk was born on May twenty second back in nineteen thirty in would near New York. His family was Jewish but not particularly devout as a child harvey loved to be the center of attention and was a talkative jubilant boy for all his boisterous nece he was guarded with his brother and father never letting anyone get to know him too deeply by the time he was a teenager milk had developed a love of theater especially the opera on weekends. He traveled into New York City to does he every show he could afford his mother. Many quickly grew concerned by her son's interest in theater. She knew what was said about men who loved the stage and the common attitudes of the time suggested to many that gay men were dangerous one day many sat down with her son to warn him of the risks. Many believed were posed by predatory gay men she gave Milka speech based on the stereotypes and rumors she'd heard warning him the game men would do terrible unthinkable things too sweet. Young boys like him except milk already knew that he was different from other boys while his friends flirted with pretty girls Harvey developed crushes on the men he saw onstage and when many voice your opinion of gay men milk understood that he could never be honest with his mother about his sexual orientation as he matured milks trips to the city became about more than just the opera opera he learned where the best gay pickup spots were and the secret codes that closeted men us to communicate these trips were risky as gay men were often victims of violence and police harassment milk was is an only afraid of getting beaten upper arrested. He also dreaded having to explain such an event to his mother when he was twenty one in nineteen fifty one milk earned a degree from the New York State College for teachers three three months later he enrolled with the Navy where he served with distinction in the Korean War less than a year after his enlistment milk was admitted into officers training by the time he'd achieved the rank of chief petty officer he'd also also developed a reputation for throwing wild parties when his ship docked and often milks. Male guests didn't go home when the party was over one day in one thousand nine hundred fifty five milks superior officers summoned him for questioning as he entered the room milk it feel his heart pounding in his ears. He fielded questions about his sexual orientation while one thought ran through his mind. What would his mother think in August nineteen fifty eighty five twenty five year old milks military career ended he laid a report that he was dishonorably discharged for being gay though the official Records List Him as honorably discharged back in civilian life milk doc was careful to avoid exposure he lived in New York but stayed away from gay bars and other neighborhoods with the wrong reputation? He was discreet when he dated those boyfriends lucky enough to meet milks. Parents were always introduced just as roommates on November twenty seventh nineteen sixty two milks mother died of a heart attack while he planned her funeral he frequently clashed with his father and brothers a rift grew through between milk and his family that would never be repaired in his lifetime that same year thirty two year old Harvey Milk began to date Craig Rodwell Rodwell had already been arrested once before but not charged with anything specific. These sorts of baseless arrests were common tactic. Police used to harass gay men in the fall of nineteen sixty four rodwell visited a gay neighborhood called Jacob reece's park. He was unfortunate enough enough to get caught up in a periodic police gay raid as the police arrested dozens of gay men Rodwell fought back he shouted this is harassment of homosexuals in return. He was charged with inciting adding a riot and convicted of indecent exposure from jail Rodwell wasn't permitted to use the phone during his three day sentence milk wondered and worried about his boyfriends abrupt disappearance by the time <music>. I'm Rodwell finally returned home. Their relationship was effectively over milk was too frightened of the exposure rod dwells arrest might bring they finally split after weeks of coldness and emotional distance in nineteen sixty eight milks new boyfriend Jack McKinley received a job offer in San Francisco and the couple moved together they split soon after the relocation but milk fell for the city and and chose not to return to New York unemployed built began looking at apartments on the inexpensive Castro street which was famous nationwide for its large vibrant gay community for the first time in his life milk flirted flirted with the idea of coming out estranged from most of his family. He no longer feared what they would think and a gay friendly community would shield him from the worst discrimination and harassment as milk began to lift more openly league. He felt like a great weight had been lifted from his shoulders. He also noticed how his friends and family were forced to reevaluate their own negative stereotypes about gay men once they knew he was one. This planted landed the seed of an idea in milks mind. Coming out wasn't just a personal choice. It was a political action increased visibility was a key element of the gay rights movement the polls at the time backed up milks theory Randy Schultz wrote in his book. The mayor of Castro Street voters who knew gays personally were twice as likely to support gay rights than those who said they had never known a homosexual but milk wasn't ready to jump straight into politics instead. He'd always liked the Romanticism of owning his own business. He knew nothing about photography but he opened a camera store at five seventy five Castro street in nineteen seventy-three living in the apartment above his shock. His photography business almost failed to take off. He was required to pay a series of government fees to open a business but lack the startup funds while he the haggled with city officials. He complained to his friends about the laws that failed to serve the needs of the public that fall milk was working his shift at Castro cameras when a young schoolteacher entered the store she. She apologetically admitted she wasn't there to buy anything. She didn't have the money for it. In fact the school district was so low on funds. She didn't even have a projector in her classroom. She wondered if milk would lend her one just just long enough to teach her class. The requests doned milk. How could San Francisco a growing wealthy city failed the finance at schools? Someone needed to change things someone needed to run for office and that someone would be harvey. Milk milk had lived in the Castro district less than a year when he decided to run for a position as city supervisor in Nineteen seventy-three at forty two years old he he had no political experience and know name recognition he was a long shot to win but milk thrived on the campaign trail. The man who always loved attention flourished as the spotlight fell on him he incorporated a flare aware of theatricality into his campaign cracking jokes and planning dramatic appearances most notably milk publicly embraced his identity as a gay man he courted gay voters claiming that even the most liberal straight straight politicians would never prioritize L._G._B._T._Q.. Issues his frequent refrain was you're never given power. You have to take it. Milk finished the race in tenth place while he grappled with his failure failure. Another politician advised milk that he needed more political experience and visibility the official said you don't get to dance unless you put up the chairs and I've never seen you put up the chairs. Nell took the advice to heart when he had learned of a defunct local Merchants Organization called Castro Village Association milk revived the group appointing himself president in nineteen seventy four harvey milk plan the first. I ever Castro Street Fair vendors and artists pack the streets to encourage tourism in the neighborhood. The event was the first of what would soon become an annual tradition a year later milk had another shot to run for the Board Board of supervisors once again he lost the race but only narrowly importantly milk made a friend in George Mosconi a gay rights friendly Democrat running for mayor when Musk Onis finish was close enough enough to trigger a runoff election milk converted his camera shop into a campaign office for Mosconi and secured the gay vote that helped carry Mosconi to victory on December eleventh nineteen seventy five in return Mosconi not personally appointed forty-five year old milk as commissioner on the San Francisco Board of permit of heels milk was the first openly Gay City Commissioner in U._S.. History but only held the position for five weeks before he resigned to participate participate in a runoff election for an unexpectedly vacant state assembly seats once again milk lost but by nineteen seventy seven forty seven year old milk was more experienced in politics battle-hardened by his three failed campaigns he knew how to wheel and deal with the political elite milks final campaign coincided with the rise of a new voice on the conservative right Anita Bryant Bryant was a singer and corporate spokesperson with roots in the Miss America beauty pageant beginning in the late nineteen seventies Bryant became the face of the save. Our children campaign save our children through Bryant argued that gay men were a threat to families and especially to children she wants infamously quipped homosexuals cannot reproduce so they must recruit Harvey love to make political point through a joke so he began to open all his speeches with the phrase. My name is Harvey Milk and I'm here to recruit you. In nineteen seventy seven the San Francisco teamsters union went on strike one day <hes> representative approached Milk Castro camera. He heard that milk held sway in the gay community and the teamsters wanted him to moderate between the Union and gay bar owners on Castro Street. The teamsters union was embroiled royal the dispute with Beer Distributors and encouraged San Francisco's bar owners to boycott the offending brands. All of the major watering holes had agreed to join the boycott except the gay bars on Castro street milk negotiated the deal in which bar owners joined the boycott in exchange for the unions agreement to hire more gay drivers soon pollsters were shocked to see that an openly gay man carried the support of the traditionally masculine teamsters. There's union milk campaigns not only for himself but for gay and lesbian men and women everywhere in nearly every speech he gave he encouraged closeted l._G._B._T._Q.. People all over the country to come out the only when the average straight American knew that they had an l._G._B._T._Q.. Friend neighbor child or sibling with the gay rights movement go mainstream but as melt grew more popular he also began to receive even anonymous death threats in the mail. After months of Campaigning Election Day on November eighth nineteen seventy seven found milk anxious and uneasy after three electoral defeats the forty seven year world feared that he may never secure the city supervisor seat when milk heard the official results he found that his fears had been unfounded. Milk won handily he was the first openly gay man to ever be elected to a major public office in the United States as Harvey gave his victory speech alone voice from the crowd shouted Harvey for mayor applause erupted. It finally seemed like an openly gay man could could achieve anything as much as he may have wanted to celebrate his victory milk knew he was in a precarious position while many San Franciscans were progressive. There were just as many social conservatives who would never accept a gay councilman milk feared that he'd be assassinated in office. His friends tried to dissuade his dark thoughts. They jokingly remind melt that his position was ultimately a minor seat unlikely to draw on assassins attention. One friend even said Hey. You're not Martin Luther King. You're not important enough but milk could let go of his fears. He'd already been receiving death threats for months and now he was even more visible will on November eighteenth ten days after his electoral victory milk visited his lawyer. The forty seven year old wanted to get his affairs in order in case he was assassinated in office during this visit milk set up taper quarter and voiced his fears and plans he recorded several tapes with instructions that they were only to be played in the event of his murder and one recording he said knowing that I could be assassinated at any moment almonds or any time I feel it's important that some people know my thoughts. If a bullet should enter my brain let that bullet destroy every closet door in the country milk still hadn't taken his oath of office and he already feared that his sexual orientation would make him a target sadly his preparations would soon prove all to prescient coming up next harvey milk is assassinated now back to the story on November Eighth Nineteen seventy seven forty seven year old harvey milk won a seat on San Francisco's board of city supervisors key at another newly-elected Councilman thirty-one-year-old Dan White were soon invited to a series of televised joint interviews although the election was over local news stations drew ratings by seating white and milk together and letting them but heads on TV the media loved pairing the to milk was progressive out liberal white was a catholic moderate with conservative leanings. Although they were both Democrats they were seemingly opposites which offered the press a ready he made narrative about their rivalry during one interview milk challenged white on his earlier homophobic comments especially whites quote about San Francisco being full of social deviates white responded that his quote quote referred to drug addicts he assured milk and the public that he had no problem with gay people out of the public eye milks friends criticized him for legitimising a homophobic social conservative but but milk believed that white could be reasoned with he said I'm going to sit next to Dan every day and let him know. We're not all those bad things. He thinks we are everyone can be reached. Everyone can be educated and helped you think some people are hopeless not me during their media tour milk and white formed a cautious friendship what they lacked in political camaraderie they made up for with hard one respects and shared experiences variances on the press circuit by the time the each took their oaths of office on January Ninth Nineteen Seventy eight they were comrades and allies as city supervisor milk soon found his first pet issue poll after poll showed that the public consistently complained about the large amounts of dog poop on sidewalks and in parks the issue was universal people from all demographics and every neighborhood wanted something going to be done about the problem one chilly morning in early nineteen seventy-eight milk spent an hour scouring San Francisco's do both park. He scooped up every piece of dog poop he could find and combined it into one large large pile. He finished his work before the press arrived. The media had been informed that milk was announcing new legislation that day but they didn't know the details yet with a winning smile milk welcomed the reporters to his the press conference he stepped forward for a picture and he stepped right into the massive poop pile. He'd made earlier mill stared in faint horror at his soiled shoe while reporters snapped pictures then Dan with the practiced ease of natural showman milk explain how this misstep was the perfect demonstration for his new law he would impose fines on pet owners who didn't collect their dogs feces in the following weeks. nokes rivals mocked him suggesting that he focused on dog poop because he had nothing to offer on more substantial issues even his friend and ally Mayor Mosconi complained about how milks dog poop bill grabbed headlines Milk Brag to his friends that it was a positive sign that he was being criticized for his policies not for his sexuality meanwhile his public support skyrocketed the people rejoiced that they could now walk freely on the streets milk once quipped to a friend who ever can solve the dog poop problem can be elected mayor of San Francisco even president of the United States since they're televised debates milk and white had remained and friends and unlikely political allies white even broke ranks with his fellow conservative leaning supervisors in order to support milks initiatives like a gay rights bill and saving the Pride Center a public facility that served out citizens in exchange for his votes white expected mill to repay the favor by joining him in opposition to the youth campus a Catholic run juvenile detention facility that had been proposed in whites neighborhood white campaigned hard against the building claiming it would bring troubled criminal youth into otherwise safe residential communities he got into a public shouting match with one Catholic priest involved in the project in which white cursed at the holy man behind closed doors at city hall white also pressed the other cities supervisors to stand with him against the facility one Friday evening white asked milk if he had his support incoming vote milk reassured him saying Dan you've really earned your nine thousand six hundred dollars on this one a reference to whites humble city supervisor salary light took this answer as has a confirmation that milk would join him in the vote against the youth campus that Monday milk support would tip the scales in whites favor and he spent his weekend confident that he'd secured the votes. He needed when Monday morning rolled around however white was devastated to see milk vote in favor of opening the youth campus his was the tiebreaking vote and White was defeated milk saw his choice as a primarily political one the youth campus construction was popular with milks constituents and he worried about the welfare of at Risk San Francisco teens who would have nowhere to go without the youth campus bought from whites perspective. milks vote was a personal betrayal. After the tally he stormed out of the room later white spotted another city supervisor invented. I guess a leopard never changes it spots for a full week after the vote white. It didn't show up at City Hall. His friends and family believed he was depressed. Thanks to the disappointment about the vote in addition to his money woes since he'd been sworn into office months earlier white had found that his salary couldn't stretch as far as heat originally hoped annually he received nine thousand six hundred dollars the equivalent of just under thirty eight thousand dollars today money had been tight since the start of his term and now that whites wife had recently had a baby he didn't know how to make ends meet when white finally did reappear at City Hall One week later on March Twentieth Nineteen Seventy eight it was to vote on Harvey Milk Signature Bill The gay a rights ordinance. This legislation was designed to protect openly l._G._B._T._Q.. Employees from discrimination and prohibited the state from firing people for their sexual orientation when it came time for the vote the majority voted in favor that there was a single dissenter Dan White prior to that day whitehead assured milk that he would support the Gay Rights Ordinance but now that the time came to show his support white betrayed milk just as milk had earlier betrayed him after the ordinance past white gave a speech to the press in which he decried the gay rights movement he said this bill. Let's a man and address be a teacher. His words were shocking to his colleagues who never sense such a depth of homophobia from the man but now that he considered milk an enemy white vowed to stand in opposition position to anything milk believed in on this matter white proved to be as good as his word he voted against every measure milk proposed his public statements grew increasingly homophobic and at home his depression grew worse and worse whites relationship with his wife Marianne cool to the point that white began sleeping on the couch the usually health conscious white took to binging on sugary snacks wchs his friends noticed his increasingly frequent sullen temper tantrums one of milks greatest political battles was against prop six also known as the Briggs Initiative propsects. If it past would forbid the state of California from employing any teacher who was gay or lesbian or who supported gay rights when State Representative John Briggs presented prop six the ballot measure was wildly popular milk publicly opposed it but his efforts seemed like a lost 'cause he didn't realistically expect to defeat the bill but he hoped to make the vote close enough to send a message that L._G._B._T._Q.. People weren't going to rollover all over and accept discrimination. No Challenge Briggs to a public debate and the representative agreed they met at a suburban high school on September Sixth Nineteen Seventy eight forty eight year old milk insured that the live audience audience was packed with gay rights supporters television cameras broadcast the pair as they verbally sparred trading barbs about same-sex attraction briggs echoed Anita Bryant's frequent assertion that because gay couples didn't have children they sought to recruit youths. He insisted that students needed protection from teachers who would turn them gay milk countered. I was born of heterosexual parents. It's and why am I a homosexual. If I'm affected by role models I should have been a heterosexual and no offense meant but if teachers are going to affect you as role models there'd be a lot of nuns running around the streets today milk relish the opportunity to give gay rights public platform but he mentally prepared for prop six to inevitably pass he worked closely with Mayor Mosconi to ready the San Francisco Police Force for the riots and protests that were certain to follow election day votes poured in on November seventh nineteen seventy eight milk watch the news reports role in with the results. He was shocked at the end of the day when reporters announced else that proposition six was defeated by a wide margin his hard work had paid off more than seventy five percent of all votes cast in San Francisco were against prop six the only district that didn't reject the ballot initiative was Dan Whites on November tenth nineteen seventy eight thirty two year old white suddenly tendered his resignation to Mayor Mosconi citing his meager salary white hadn't discussed his intention to quit with anyone not even his wife when milk curd of whites resignation he was thrilled. The city council was evenly split between liberal and conservative Supervisors Mayor Mosconi a Progressive Democrat had the authority to appoint whites replacement he could tip the scales of power whites constituents did WanNa let that happen. They began to call him at home demanding that he withdraw his resignation and days later white asked Mosconi if he could be reappointed to his former seats. Mosconi reassured white that he'd worked with him once word reached milk he marched directly to Mosconi office like milk Mosconi US Goni was a radical progressive but he tempered his legislation with an eye toward his popularity with more moderate voters. If milk hoped to change musk onis mind he need to argue based on pragmatism not ideology -nology milk reminded him of the political opportunity they'd squander if white resumed his seat and thanks largely to his pleading Mosconi agreed to think the issue over further before he made a decision white was still still waiting to hear back when he bumped into a reporter at a fundraiser. They chatted for a bit but when the reporter asked if White was anti-gay white noticeably cooled he responded. Let me tell you right now. I've I've got a real surprise for the gay community a real surprise at ten thirty on the night of November twenty six just over two weeks since his resignation white received a phone call from a news station station seeking a quote on the fact that Mosconi was replacing him. That was the first white herd of his rejection. Mosconi never called him with the verdict. The next morning November twenty seventh nineteen seventy eight Dan Dan White forced open the window of basement office at City Hall a little before Eleven A._M.. He climbed inside bypassing the metal detectors that stood at the entrance. This was the only way for him to smuggle well his service revolver into the building White Walk to Mayor Mosconi office passing several friends and former co workers in the halls. None of them thought there was anything suspicious about his presence. They figured he was there. Air to discuss the terms of his resignation when white entered Muskogee could see from his expression that he was upset. He offered white a drink to calm his nerves but white a teetotaler declined the two human stepped in to Moscow News private back office. There Mosconi reassured white that his decision wasn't personal but white didn't believe him he thought of how he'd be torn apart in the press he imagined that Mosconi would lie about him and ruined his reputation overwhelmed by paranoia white lifted his gun and pulled the trigger white shot Mosconi twice in the head and twice more war in the body. The mayor instantly died the sound of the gunshots resonated throughout the building. Most staffers assumed a car on the street had backfired and ignored the pops president of the Board of Supervisors Visors Dianne Feinstein had been notified as soon as white arrived that morning when she heard the gunshots she assumed white had killed himself and ran toward Mosconi office to provide assistance but before she could get they're white stepped out of Mosconi office and into the Hallway surprisingly most everyone ignored him for a moment. He wondered where to go next. He hadn't planned past this moment. Then white spotted one of milks folks AIDS. He remembered rumors. He'd heard that milk was the one who had convinced Mosconi not to hire him back. He'd been betraying him ever since the youth campus vote in fact white realized that Harvey Milk was to blame for all of his problems after reloading his thirty-eight caliber revolver white strode into milks office milk hadn't heard the gun shot and had no idea of the murder minutes earlier he calmly greeted white who asked to speak to him. Privately milk agreed and the pair strode into whites former office once inside white began to scream he accused milk of conspiring with Mosconi Kony to keep him off the board and then milk smirked white could only think that milk knew how much he'd heard him that he was enjoying his suffering white lifted his gun aimed and fired after the first bullets truck milk stumbled backward he gasped. Oh no white continued to shoot striking milk five times. He collapsed to the ground but white didn't stop firing until he was certain that he was dead. Feinstein was still in route to Mosconi office when she saw White Dart out in the hallway she shouted out Inbet- White didn't slow or stop Feinstein pushed open the door that white had just run out of and found milk sprawled on the floor at the same moment. A city official arrived at Moscone his office for her eleven o'clock appointment Mosconi secretary checked don the mayor to see if he was ready and found that he too was dead while City Hall descended into chaos and panic white calmly approached his confused aid and asked for his car keys the aid complied and the newly minted murderer escapes without missing a step.

well or or you can do it many folks choose to do which is to call the ralph report hotline it is dedicated hotline for your voicemails we love it when you leave your voicemail twenty four hours a day seven days a week all you need to do is pick up your telephonic device and punching that beloved phone number one eight three three that was a good one i liked that first one for two thousand twenty yes i listen to them all and then i grab a handful of them and we slap him here at the top of the show in a segment called gummy on the line phone is ringing and russell would sound the first up is well we we i i talked about this yesterday and again i don't wanna dwell on the fact that my father's passed and carrying are getting divorced and i had to move into a new house and there's a lot of change and stress going on in my life right now but i don't wanna bring that to the show every day okay but again so many nice phone calls left on the ralph report hotline so much support so much love and i didn't want to ignore it so i'm gonna play this one from anthony kinda representing everybody out there who left a voicemail message i'm gonna thank thank anthony for this call and thank you all for your amazing love and support here's a little message i got today from anthony hey ralph this is anthony anthony moreno with the holiday on aid jingle i just wanted to call and send my deepest condolences about your dad i know this past year was pretty much big shit show with the i'm sure that even though you guys are seemingly and such a good place with a divorce you know just the hassle of moving and and new do things was enough but the compounding that with your dad's health i my heart goes out to and you know we're all here for you man if you need anything all you need to give out the the garment signal and we'll be there for you i'm especially move because you helped me get through my dad's passing a couple years ago well care about you man dan and we it's definitely i know with the two-way street you give us so much and and you're so generous with your comments about how much we give you so long live the army and looking forward to twenty twenty men doctrine thank you so much anthony makes cry loved to use her and to all the garment members who have left similar voicemails on the hotline just just terrific and i'm happy to know that i was able to help you in a similar situation by giving y'all laugh or smile or someplace along wives so and you know he brought up the divorce and a lot of people people have been reaching out asking how are things going and you guys are still living together in the new house i don't know if it's a well known or not but we did sell our previous home we we are buying two separate homes and then live you will spend time in both of between the two homes but until carrie finds her own place we are still living together as a family in in this house and people are asking how can you guys do that how can you be in the midst of divorce and still cohabitate oh easy usefully and it's been really no i mean i i'm sleeping in a closet in the back of the house is true or it's not been great in the guest room it's not a closet is it just because you haven't unpacked any boxes of boxes i packed a few things but it as it turns out you bought the only acceptable acceptable and available house in all of the san fernando valley simply isn't true and so i'm still looking and i just haven't found it yet but we you you know part of the reason that we chose to do this was because it would be helpful for me to help you set your house up a little bit because there's so much to do and also because this is a it is more natural transition for olivia so i we move houses and then you you know here we've kind of been getting her used to us going out separately a couple nights a week says she gets used to both parents putting her to bed and so instead of of doing it like how i think most people do which is sit their kids down and say mommy and daddy aren't aren't going to be together anymore and your whole world changes overnight cold turkey cold turkey were just sort of taking it slow and she's had time to adapt to the new house and she she will participate along with ralph and looking for my houses well l. and she she gets to be a part of this too and say like here's how many nights a week i think we should still do family dinners and here's the kinda the days i wanna be with mom or with dad and were just feeling it all out and because we're doing it that way she literally is she's well well-adjusted and she's so happy and it's it's working well this way isn't it absolutely is an eye fake you and i are also adjusting but also really well you know dealing with it well and handling it fine it doesn't seem to be any problems now i mean i think it's given us a chance is to sort of you know you adapt your relationship a little bit from your husband and wife to two good friends and so the fact that we're still together under the same roof it is giving us that chance to kind of to to do that and it's an it's comfortable it seems like such a foreign idea though to so many people 'specially folks who have gone through divorces that were not amicable right i were maybe had a little bitterness or anger or resentment to them and they can't comprehend how we can be still friendly glee and still living in the same home as still being a family unit and i don't know what the answer is for people i don't know what it comes down to one simple thing thing which is that it's all fine for you to have your feelings and your emotions and your goals and your dreams for your life but everything that we've done done every step of the way with this divorce we have held carefully held and respected the other person's wishes so there have been times where one of us might have wanted to move faster or move slower or do it different and we've always made sure that whatever decision we make works for for both people that's that's right that's why it's worked yeah and that's hard to do i get but it's also a decision that you absolutely can make and if you dedicate yourself to that process i think it makes things simpler and and an easier on everybody so that's our recommendation yesterday we're also talking about miley cyrus she lost a bunch of money in a court case because she stole a song and so if you don't remember it was that i forget the name of the song but it goes like this we run things things no run we was the line that she stole stupidly bjorn called from cincinnati natty you're talking about miley cyrus vance the only saw you know things don't run we run me i mean she could have changed one word one word i wanna love you meet a black i don't think anyone's ever accused miley cyrus of being a genius so you're absolutely right so she could've done bullet there it's the one day into the new year with the new show yesterday i've already fucked things up already wrong it turns out we both were oh god aw i got some emails carry that said pisa is north of rome not south of rome really what you said yesterday yeah some listener recommended you might need another trip back to lead to get your bearings yeah i think i think i could have sworn it less but i'm sure they're right and as for me we were talking about david caruso birthday yesterday and what's it's show he was on playing a ratio cain with his sunglasses and all that stuff i screwed that up trash to rely watch now it wasn't answered i asked my heavy cruiser was in anyway needed trace you're absolutely right i guess i said NCIS miami yesterday instead of CSI miami oh well aren't there like twenty five of each of those there's a lot of procedural shows that have initials in yeah that's an understandable understandable mistake me getting my geography wrong is a little eddie ass but i should know the name of the damn tv show for god's sakes so i apologize trace it's it's disappointing i guess you could say i don't know how i got it caruso wrong worth it just for that and we're talking about cameron diaz announcing over the a holiday that she was a brand new mom with her daughter radic's rad not a name and so a lot of people are asking me what what are the rules after today's episode where i always hear you talk about what name do you have any like guidelines willing to share guys i always now i tell my girlfriend that if i ever have a boy i'm going to name him after famous greek myth famous volk a US president not ulysses i can't or should be gone all right allenby by hewliss sees is fine it's a real name real name here's my thing people think i'm very strict on people and what names they use there's some names people like other names people don't like like that's a matter of taste but there are rules in my world for what you call your kids and the simple rule is it has to be a name like at a a real name can't just put a bunch of letters together a bunch of sounds together and make up your own names radic's is not thing k. so if all named my child labour lord snark that's not a thing either or clamps thing and not that no just random sound come out of your mouth our our thing now also don't name them after other things that aren't names might so no apple no so formica manno waistcoat but not just random fit names of things are are not names of people about people who change their own name like magic johnson well magic was a nickname he got because of his performance nicknames or different that's true okay i'm talking about what goes on on the the birth certificate okay was irving right anne throughout school he was irvine and not a great name don't get me wrong irvine ervin was probably hard to live with but it was an actual name okay and then he became magic because he was magical about diddy no see no that's that didn't he actually changes changes name did and i think once you're an adult you can be the biggest ass you wanna be in changing into any golden years and don't do it to a child's my point don't strap your kid with a disadvantage on the playground by making them radic's or some other bullshit name saw say those are the rules you know we have friends that have done this oh no that have have some fabulous fab straighten up or ship oh god okay so we're not going to be invited to the next dinner name just pick a real name and evert's here's the thing the thing that also bugs me is the motivation behind it because there is a sense you we know that they say if i name my child something interesting and unique and special that will automatically make my child unique and interesting and special and and by osmosis i too will be somehow unique and special because my child i can bask in the reflected glory of their weird name nece so it's a self it's so ridiculously selfish stopping just stop it stop thanks everybody for calling and you too can be featured here on the garden on the line segment but you know what you gotta do call me now it's time i take a look in the rear view mirror as we find out what happened on january eighth this day in history rows about to solve another miss still it just a david decent boot invented listerine tyrant king married his sister queen who knows every day seems to be the army's rub in rouse lamps wishes please tell us what week down this day and his on this day january eighth in sixteen seventy five live the very first american commercial corporation was created here's a nice thing about creating a corporation in sixteen seventy any five you could just name it what you did it didn't have to get clever and come up with an interesting name for your company because you were the first company to do that and do that so the first corporation was the a new york fishing company simple that's what they did they were freshers fisherman that's what they did you didn't have to come up with something clever after that everybody had that i got you can be we are the the robinson plate company just made plates were the restaurant on the restaurant company banal everyone's got their hard work cut out for him so i feel bad in sixteen seventy six charles the second of england revoked his proclamation outlawing coffeehouses due to public look protests people wanted their coffee key magin if they tried out la starbucks or something people would lose their minds but they're more t. people than coffee yeah but i i think that in the first place my guess is it was a gathering place where sometimes descent navy fostered because the people who gather and talk about the royal class in the ruling family what they were doing so he probably didn't like that in seventeen ninety are US president george washington delivered the first state of the union address on this day row i'm guessing he just said this new says new new union unite everybody in eighteen hundred the first soup kitchens in london were open to serve the poor let's nice yes steve ashton who volunteers his services every christmas he he does he he couldn't do this christmas because he was sick but i think he did go back and do it on new year's day yet a venereal disease to sync with absolutely ni- STD a crippling s teething now he had a head cold so do you would you brand new rumors on this day in eighteen o six lewis listen clark during their expedition found the skeleton of a blue whale in oregon that measured one hundred and five feet in length can you imagine seeing that in person they they must have thought that that they were finding a dinosaur yes yawn five foot long skeleton well what was it wale doing an oregon i wonder i guess at one point may organs underwater that possible we'll share it's on the coast i suppose in eighteen thirty five the US national debt was zero for the first and only time in american history just like right now as low as zero in eighteen fifty six dr john a VH beach discovered a large positive borax in tuscan springs california thus starting the borax cleaning sensation in this country whenever one started using borax in household laundry and cleaning products you know barack sales are through the roof for another resort if you don't have kids you probably don't know about at this but borax is an activating agent in making slime that's correct an arch child makes a lot of slime and we we have a lot of borax it is like a god damn meth lab it's it's yet as test tubes and balls and mixing and colors and it's like breaking bad it's like she's making meth yes and she's as addicted to it as people get to know that i found a bunch of slime in the back seat of my car the other day it was like hardin is everywhere all the time we're gonna have to crack down on the sly man on this day in eighteen sixty seven african american men were granted the right to vote eighteen sixty eighteen sixty seven despite president andrew johnson's veto where to go and ago andrew in eighteen eighty nine dr herman hollering cholera received the first patent for mechanical tabulating machine the very first adding machine okay it was created in one thousand nine hundred eighty two this is my favorite fact act of the day by far new york state assemblyman francis g landon got a bill passed that criminalized men turning around owned on a new york street and looking at a woman in that way quotes that was against the law you couldn't turn your head look at a woman and in that way it says it in the law which is hilarious also considering how many close women wore walking down the street in that ear to tell like literally covered with a bonnet in a long dress that i can see a little ankle laced up moot looking pretty good had twenty five bucks was the fine if you looked at a woman i in that wet was steep ain't first offense okay second offense they would fit you with horace blinders they would put blinders on your face that you couldn't look out of the side of your vision picture of this by chance but apparently the law is still on the books in new york state bellina although it is obviously never been fully prosecuted prosecuted because if you walk down the street in new york year hey baby what's going naacp command lali not enforce i'm driving arena mobile over here yeah anytime i need to pick me up i just can walker street in new york that the trophyless speaking of bad thoughts in people's heads in nineteen oh

done we conquered it everybody's everybody there are no homeless people in LA underneath a freeway overpasses at adderall crazy crazy tent city have you been down down yeah i mean it's it looks post-apocalyptic looks like a science fiction movie does street it it is it is crazy the nineteen sixty six the who and the kinks performed on the very last episode of shindig which was a popular music program on ABC which which broke really all the big bands of the day in nineteen sixty eight and television jacques cousteau used to watch jock he debuted his first undersea i see special on US network television i thoroughly enjoyed those shows and they were fascinating because he was like the only guy shooting movies underwater right now it's a commonplace see national geographic channel

dan white right defense when he went to trial is a name for it for extra points i'm not gonna get it the twinkie defense was the twinkie defense because he he claimed that he was already depressed and he ate a bunch of fast food and it made his mental state even worse and that's why he acted out in the way of that work for him not so because that's stupid i stoop but that's what is psychiatrist

the first got got ill and threw up in the lap of japanese prime minister was so did you see it oh god it was awesome watch it over and over he was sitting there and then he kinda cocked his head back

leno that was a bad decision in nineteen ninety-three also in this day elvis presley's commemorative postage stamp went on sale they very busy day for elvis presley was his birthday they had a vote

because there was a tweet about the fact fact that iranian officials have supposedly put an eighty million dollar bounty on president donald trump's life and george lopez responded to the news i will do it for half he said rich whether they think it's a funny joke or not you can't threaten the life of the president of the united just not done the secret service does not have a sense of humor about this particular subject and even if you do it publicly and even if you say it was a joke they will investigated and he is going to have to sit down in a room to it some guys in dark glasses and blacks and answer some sexy this secret servicemen servicemen i've thought about threatening the president just so i can have a meeting with the secret service that's weird it's like size and aviator

bounty wait let me look out the window hey look i could use the press quite quite frankly if they want to stop by TMZ wants to pick the story up all right with me here's another thing you'll be interested in care i know you're looking forward to seeing that movie hustlers with jennifer lopez hey do you wanna see that and i don't like to see very many things but that's on my list it's on now available twenty on the direct TV i think they got a video on demand anyway there's a bit of a kerfuffle going on with that film because one of the real life strippers that the movie is based on is suing j.lo's production company for forty the million dollars wow that is a lot of any she claims they came to her and said they wanted to base the movie on her and she rejected their offer for and so they went ahead and created a fictional character based on the news story that was surrounding this case and she's claiming it's may and i need need to be compensated for for the way you presented my character which was misleading and was untrue and now i want twenty twenty million dollars in compensatory damages and twenty million in punitive dench is it a little late in the game here to be filing this lawsuit she claims they came to her when they were in production said we'll pay you a certain stipend to be able to use your name in the film she no it's not enough and they went away and they came back with a key character that was she claims based on her without actually naming but it's not based on any other person that we're a bunch of strippers involved in the scandals the true story where they would take wall street dudes back campaign room and drug them and take their cards and get codes to accounts and things like that and it's so perfect movie i can't wait to one yeah she is now looking for forty billion dollars look if there's anyone who knows how to shake down someone for cash yeah it's a stripper so she might actually get at that money and that's surprising to me that general has even has the time or energy to look into this loss of issues going to have to defend herself because she's so busy with so many other other thing she has got a recording career and she's performing all the time she's in movies but then when i thought about it dawned on me there's always room for j. lo i can see where this was going and here we go this is a this is a stripper using her powers for good not for evil erotic model kaelin ward who has an instagram remodel apparently she has started a brand new charity fundraising event it is called the naked philanthropist trapist and if you go on her instagram and you can prove that you donated ten dollars to certain australian fundraisers that are helping with the devastating fires down there in australia she will send you a naked picture of herself so for every ten dollars that you donate she will send you a nude photo of of herself i i like that plan it's a genius plan and she is raising she's raised so far seven hundred thousand dollars and let is the name of her hurt new it's called the naked philanthropist cute instagram by the way balanced her they closed deactivated her account even though she wasn't posting nude photos on the account was posting sexually suggestive content yet by soliciting men to send her money or to prove that they donate money rather for these new photographs graphs so go patriots you betcha you can do anything new patriotic it is you want and they do watch the content i and they will flag certain creators as explicit but you can do what you want she should move right on over there you can follow her by the way on social media at at little earth angel k that's LL earth angel cases she's not an inst- anymore but she's probably on twitter i'm sure that's her handle on all the so check that out i think she's doing the lord's where have you seen her is she hot i saw i saw a picture but they they censored the the good bits but she was like bent over like raising in a leg i mean it wasn't just like an artsy fartsy nude pictures say hey you wanna see what's going on there were snatched yes okay look like something out of have a goop cadillac there might

celebrity celebrity birthdays i'm rob garman i walked the show biz beat and speaking of things musical round here on wednesdays we like to take a look back at classic songs things that were smash hits for an artist it's really never heard from again it's a segment called one hit wonders the one hit wonders very common tale yeah this one comes from a lot of people brandy senator e mail for a bunch of people suggesting this song and we could've done this one yesterday quite frankly either the TV tuned segment or today's one hit wonder segment that's a little clue it is a little clue over the weekend on the hollywood babylon show yes i pay tribute to a singer not a singer songwriter named allee willis and she was known for writing riding a lot of cool rb hits like she worked with earth wind and fire and did september and boogie wonderland but i mentioned that she was probably best known for writing this song which was also ATV theme song okay and i think because i pay tribute to her passing a lot of people said oh that should be a one you wonder because i never heard from that band again they released it the show itself came about in nineteen ninety-three three producers kevin bright marta kauffman open and david crane created a show about six powles who were making their way in new york city in their twenties trying to make the world world work for them and they did a pilot and the song that they put as the theme song on the front of the pilot because they didn't have theme song yet was REM's it's the end of the world as we know it and they said we liked that bouncy sort of feel to it i asked the kind of song we wanna have for the theme song so they reached out to a ban that they were fans of from the nineties called the rembrandts and these were two guys it was a duo who worked together and they had asante sort of minor hit in nineteen eighteen ninety maybe you remember this rembrandt song his it is the so they sent the guys the pilot and they said we have an idea for a theme song we'd like you guys to perform it and so they ended up meeting with the guy who wrote the music and allee willis who wrote the the words as for the theme song and they started working on it and in a couple of days they had hammered out what became one of the most famous tv theme song certainly of the nineties called old alabi there for you and it was of course the theme song to the tv friends here's where the story gets interesting got original theme song ran for about forty five seconds here's what happened the show was so popular it was an instant hit and everybody was talking about it but in nashville nashville at a radio station called w y h y there was a music director there who took the original short version of that jingle jingle of the tv theme song and looped it into three minute length song now started playing it on the radio and people were losing their minds saying how how much they loved the song so the rembrandts got a call from their record label and they said you guys need to record a full length version of the song we need a three minute single version of this we got to extend it and write some more stuff and we got to release it because it's getting airplay right down in nashville and people losing their mind so they went back in the studio and they re recorded a full length version of the tv theme song that was never meant to be released just as a single but it was and they released a song called i'll be there for you here it is lumpy this the job for a second everybody go in taylor and were breakfast so they do that it goes on but still pretty catchy up that song was released as a single and it stayed at the top of the billboard board hot one hundred airplay chart which means it was the the songs they playing most on the radio i it was number one for eight weeks lau played everywhere all over the the united states not just a hit here in the states it was a number one song for five weeks in canada it reached the top ten in australia new zealand norway ireland the the united kingdom in the mid nineties it was a smash hit song around the world and the rembrandts never got another taste of that kind of success now ended up breaking up a couple of years after the release of that song poor rembrandt's by the way the clapping at the beginning of the famous clapping that clapping is actually the producers of the tv show that's kohl marta kauffman kevin bright and david crane they wanted to be part of the records so they said we want to do the handclapping part took them like fifty takes just to clap four four times in a row on beat they were not musicians well i can imagine and they'll all have to clap at the same exact time exactly four claps come on for not everybody he is a drummer like shrew and that's it for today's one hit wonder one one hit wonders so very common tale thanks so much for spending some time with carrie myself today boys and girls this is your last show this

Sure with the parent which brother with your sister someone in law enforcement someone outside of law enforcement. Let them know that Captain Captain Hunter is trying to bridge that divide between the police and the communities that they serve. Got a great episode for today. We'll talk about the monthly. Wrap up and talk about some of the items that have been going on around the country that it will affect law enforcement now of course in clearly I cannot and will not attempt to talk about every single episode concerning law enforcement around the country but I think that there are some major stories and some major themes teams and we can take we can really learn about going forward right so no matter where you live at right. We can take these lessons that other people are doing in other parts of the country and tried to implement them within our own law enforcement with our own branch of government within our own As we'll learn about today district attorney's offices etc etc etc.. So just sit back. Relax take a listen and please make sure that you hit that. Like subscribing chair button and here we go so I would be remiss not to talk about the tragic death of Kobe Bryant. Now this is obviously not something that is law enforcement related but also also talk about community issues right and this Death to Kobe. Bryant has really touched a lot of people a lot of different ways in one of the the biggest ways that it has affected people particularly those when the L. A. Area is. Is that some people have been greatly saddened. Obviously right to them. Copy was a hero. Cobi wasn't mentor. Kobe was someone who helped build their own self esteem and and so many other things that people have said very kind words that people have said whether you like him or not. We watched Kobe. Brian grow up over the years right drafted into the NBA at the age of seventeen or eighteen and retired Garon about the age of thirty seven. Thirty eight something like that. So for twenty years we watched this man Grow into a an to an adult. His perspectives change. And all that kind of stuff but you know what has also been very frustrating. Ed At least according to my own opinion who has been very frustrating is the amount of negative attention that he has gotten yes. Kobe Bryant gotten some trouble back in two thousand three With a rape case sexual assault case allegations in in Colorado. He then later settled that case for a public apology. And probably some monetary damages back in two thousand five so in the wake week of his tragic death many people have been bringing that up. You know that he was nothing more than a rapist and Yada Yada Yada so the question that I that I would ask is win. When is someone's past really in their past the things that I've done a forty seven today or Xm forty six forty seven to March twenty twenty? The things are done when I was seventeen eighteen. When am I going to be forgiven for those days? How long am I still that same person? How long are you still that? Saint Person If you're thirty thirty five at thirty are you. That saint person that you were when you were twenty. Are you making those same mistakes Ray. We know that the human brain continues to develop up and doesn't stop developing until about the age twenty five twenty six or so. Kobe Bryant was on a journey just as the rest of us were and this is really tied into what a lot. The people want about criminal justice reform particularly prison reform. Right someone who gets arrested at the age of eighteen or twenty-one sentenced to thirty forty fifty years in jail or even twenty years jail prison ten years later there are twenty one when they get arrested another thirty one. They have the hot the benefit of hindsight in in their radio. They're not the same person that they were when they were twenty one. Now that thirty five and forty one right. You're not the same person you have matured mentally. The question has been asked. Are you that same person in as much of a threat to the public that you were when you were first incarcerated first arrested so this is the problem. This is the difficulty that many people are having and this is the conversation that many people are having when we talk about these types of for incident and so I would put Kobe Bryant into this category. Of course he made mistakes. I'm not going to excuse sexual assault. I'm not going to excuse the in fact people want things to change. In the interim years we've had the METOO movement in Time's up movement I and my own daughter I have a wife I have a mother You okay cousins who are females and I want them to be able to go to work and move about the society freely without the threat of sexual assault or the threat of sexual harassment. I don't think that that's unreasonable. To ask of our society but continuing to hold something against someone for years. After turning two thousand three was seventeen years ago you know sixteen seventeen years ago. That was when this all occurred. So just think about that and not only that but you know we know that the there have been a lot of social media memes. Unfortunately I have not read or seen any of these memes. Maybe it's just the friends that I have on social media who have not who have not posted but I hear that there's a lot of people saying some very nasty very harsh things about Kobe Bryant and I do I I did come across a story about an La East La Teacher Band teacher at that. Who went on for four minute tirade which was recorded by one of his students and class Talking about what made Kobe Bryant. A great basketball player also made him a terrible basketball player. I mean Y.. Go on about that right as a band teacher. I don't know how this man was as a teacher. Could someone say about you that. What made you a great man? Teacher also made you a bad band teacher. What what's the point in the purpose of this? The kids in class are more likely morning. This is there in in high school more than likely. This is one of the heroes that they have grown up with right if you think about a high school student when they probably started watching basketball my generation we watched 'EM MJ. Right Michael Jordan kids. Today you know high school students will still remember Kobe. Bryant in his heyday in as they continue to watch Lebron James. What what what is gained by bashing these people? I talked about before giving people. They're flowers while they can smell them. I think that that's very very important. It makes no sense and maintenance does no good but to bash people in this time of need and I wish that we could all get this and I'm not saying we have to praise him and love him fawn all all over him people were Koby fans you weren't people were la the La Laker fans or you weren't But to Tabasco's man in his death I I think as I think very tack lesson and to do it in a classroom setting where the students are there for to learn about band. And they're they are to You know these kids morning in to step on his man's gray before he's actually even in the grave I think is very is very tactless. There was a Washington Post reporter suspended after she tweeted concerning the once again. Two thousand three rape case against Kobe Bryant. So just is not letting this man rest right. People are hurt by this in his into bring up the pass of bringing the pain and bringing the mistake. Somebody made as terrible well as it was We can even have a debate as to whether it was actually mistake or not but to bring it up you know to tweet about it really just says something more. I think. Think about you as an individual that I think that it says about Kobe Bryant so he apologized for it he went on to to try to do some really positive things helping being other young players and starting schools are or at least some type of preparatory schools and going on to write children's book like I said we're not the same person that any word that time so we've all made mistakes. We've all fallen short of some benchmark that we tried to reach and if we followed you and to the teacher to the Washington Post reporter to anyone anywhere throughout our whole life. Would we be proud of every single decision that we may. Would your parents be proud of every single decision that you made when you on college campuses just because we know about one person's dirt doesn't make our own under in our own backyard any less dirty any less filthy any less egregious so just think about that. So That's enough about that and I and I really hope that I gave you guys but something to really think about so. Let's get into some law enforcement news and what's going on around the country One of the biggest things that has gone on is is a is a step in the right direction. It's well actually call a half of step in the right direction. And that is that attorney. General William Bar Watches a presidential commission on law enforcement right. This is going to be from the Washington Post. He launched a sixteen panel group of individuals mostly from law. Unfortunately they're going to be given nine months to study law enforcement and they're going to study our array of topics that concern law enforcement Some of the topics that that they're going to discuss are the challenges to law enforcement associated with mental illness homelessness substance abuse and other social factors that influence crime and criminal justice justice resources the recruitment hiring training and retention of law enforcement officers including in rural tribal communities refusals by state and local prosecutors. Excuse to enforce laws and prosecute categories of crime. We're going to talk about this a little bit. We're GONNA stick a pin right there for a second gonNA come back to that. The need to promote public confidence and respect for law enforcement in law enforcement officers and the effects of technological innovations on law enforcement in the criminal justice system including the talent is not -tunities percentage by such innovations now. I certainly don't have a problem with most of that. Read the challenges of Mental Health Substance Abuse Homelessness and other social factors. I think that needs to be studied the recruitment hiring training retention and law enforcement officers including rural tribal communities. Obviously I think that's important. We need more officers particularly those color to to be reflective of their communities and environments and there is a national trend Around law enforcement where we can't get people to want to enter into law law enforcement. I think that that needs to be studied in need to be dealt with but We're GONNA come back to these next two points with a breakdown. These next two points in the second year refuses is by state and local prosecutors to enforce laws prosecute categories of crime and the need to promote public confidence in respectful law enforcement and law enforcement officers. I I think that law enforcement concerning that last point that I just read about the public confidence is really. The fault of law enforcement. Law Enforcement has to reach out. We have have to be the ones be the bigger people to reach out to people and be community oriented active in communities visiting churches visiting parks visiting social programs and shooting hoops with kids playing chess with kids going bowling with kids by kids pizzas ending our Halloween candy handing out Turkeys on Thanksgiving doing what we have to do. In order to be more visible within our communities. And until we do that until officers do that they will be seen as an occupying forces and mistrusted force within his world this from the Washington. Post this commission talking about commissioner. William Bar is starting is critical. This commission is critical. Bar said because of the challenges posed by technology as well as a wave of social problems such as homelessness drug addiction mental illness that the men solutions beyond the expertise of police. Why agree with that statement but as gonNA read the secondary? He's employed hardly any people other than police on this commission. If you thinking that substance abuse and mental health and all these social problems require the expertise beyond those of police officers and why the commission the only police officers officers further bar added there have there has been especially as of late a disturbing pattern of cynicism and disrespect shown toward law enforcement. All Americans should should agree that nobody wins when trust breaks down between the police and the communities they serve we need to address this divide totally totally agree. We need to address it. The attorney journal also noted declines in police hiring morale and said it was particularly alarming. The last year more officers died by suicide then any year previously recorded in fact more more officers died by suicide than in the line of duty last year. Something I talked previous episodes. Unfortunately those up so the audio was so bad when I I was in my beginning stages but may not be able to sit through and I know I can't anymore anyway but anyway. I think that it's important that we abbar is addressing. This and I think needs to be addressed this problem. That law enforcement is having right when they're suffering from post traumatic stress disorder and all type of other type of men mental problems It's seen as the frustration in officers are unfortunately coming of cells. The commission established from an executive order. President trump signed signed last year is required to submit a report and recommendations as attorney general by this coming October after that. The attorney general is going to Submit a report. The president within sixty days of him receiving a report from this commission Terry Cunningham more from the Washington Post Terry Cunningham Deputy Executive Director of the ACP ACP that the international associated police in a former police chief said that twenty-first-century task force only focused on policing while the new commission will examine all aspects so criminal justice system and how they interact. He said the fifteen working groups will hearing's panel presentations. Infield visits more from the article. I I don't think our justice system is broken said. Jonathan F Thomson Executive Director of National Sheriff's Association. Clearly Jonathan F Thompson is out of the loop a just a criminal. Justice system is broken. There's problems with it. Well you know what I'll take that maximum broken it's it's it's designed and doing exactly what it was intended to do and that is suppressed poor in mixture of the wealthier. Taking care of we'll get we'll talk a little bit more about this in the second year. But that's but that's exactly what the criminal justice is is designed to do. That's what it's doing and so it's not broken. So he's he's Jonathan Thompson is excellent. Absolutely right but there are certainly elements of it. That needs resuscitation. That's resuscitation right. We need to revive some things in review. This demonstrates that the trump administration's really trying to get its arms Rodney. The issues at a local level a number of observers expressed surprise of the commission is made up entirely of law enforcement members. Ryo talked about this a little a bit before Cedric Alexander. You'll remember him. I had him on the podcast before you have not listened to that episode. Please make sure you go back into listen to the episode with Cedric. Drink Alexander the former president of the National Association of Black Law enforcement executives and a member of the twenty first century taskforce said. He hoped going forward that they would consider incorporating those from the civil rights and human rights community into the platform because they would be able to add valuable insight insight into their mission. Alexander noted that trump's commission does not include any cheese from the nation's largest cities woods. He said often mm face unique policing challenges. It's in the major cities where communities are most challenged with issues of crime and relationship building with the police with social issues. He said it added a few major chiefs would expand Hansi effectiveness of the commission From the commission the largest department that has a representation of their from their chief polices Wichita Kansas. which is the fifty first largest city in nation? They do have police officers from Nashville in Dallas on this commission commission. Kristen Clark President of the Lawyers Committee for civil rights under law said it's unclear whether this group has commissioned who who bring to bear expertise and critical that civil rights issues such as racial disparities when it comes to use of excessive force excessive or deadly force stops and searches in racial profiling. This commission also rises shortly filing polarizing statement from Attorney General Bar suggesting the law enforcement need not protect communities that criticize police Clark said. The commission's agenda is clearly law enforcement driven in glaringly silent an issue that are front and center a community caller. This this kind of one-sided agenda is not likely to produce action items that will address systematic. Racial disparities impacting police. Today Clark noted Than Obama's eleven person taskforce had more diverse group of members with only three from law enforcement to an Obama. Did a twenty first century taskforce. They they had Eleven persons on it in three of them were from law enforcement. Other persons were from other professions. Six of those people where people of Color are trump's commission three of its sixteen members of people who cover. That's enough of that but it's a step in the right direction. I do agree with criticisms that that have been garnered and that is that. There's not enough people of Color. There's none of big city chiefs on the commission. There's only people from law enforcement on the commission so you need to have some mental health workers if you WanNa Address Mental Health and homelessness you gotTa have experts from those communities where willing to chip in and chime in and give their their their expertise. He's so is my hope that these people from those commission front from the Commission will reach out to other experts outside their field of expertise. He's reach out to those who are specializing homelessness and mental health and other social issues Communities of color and reach out to them and say how do we bridge this divide. How yeah we breakdown? This problem address the issues of all these racial disparities and all that kind of stuff. It is a step in the right direction so this is very shocking story and his ties highs in a lot to what has been talked about when attorney general bar talks about the lack of respect in we've talked about the lack of respect and we've talked about about local district attorney's refusing to enforce the laws. Here's exactly what we're GONNA talk about here right. Here's exactly the point of this. This is comes from. ABC News enough enough is enough Saint Louis Circuit Attorney Defense Lawsuit Accusing Racist Conspiracy. So just a little bit of background about this particular story Kim Garner. Who is is the saint? Louis Circuit Attorney filed a federal lawsuit against the city. Anna gets up its policing union stating that all of the She's been getting harassed in that. The Union in the police department is conspiring against her and they don't want her to do her job and they're they're upset about the reforms that she's trying to bring in as a result of that there has been an independent investigator who's been called to monitor her office. And digging through her files silence and this just general forms of Harare of harassment. Now Kim Gardner has been fighting back and she has actually filed this lawsuit claiming Going back to an eighteenth seventy-one law a ruling about the Ku Klux Klan. Act or law. Very very interesting so on this a little bit from ABC News Black elected prosecutors from across the country. Have come to the defense of Saint Louis Circuit Attorney. Kim Gardner saying her federal lawsuit suit against the city and its police using alleging a coordinated racist conspiracy to drive her from office reflects a national trend prosecuted from California. The -Fornia to Baltimore said that similar to garner they've endured smear campaigns by police unions inexperienced a status quo mindset pervasive in local court in government when attempts were made to push through criminal justice reforms. Right so these these elected officials right many's circuit district attorneys have been elected right the will of the people because they running on platforms of police and criminal justice reforms because they are going against the status quo. The police lease union has been fighting it back against them and this is not just something. That's going on in Saint Louis Missouri but this is a national trend in which many of these district attorney's as many of them black African American many of them female and this is the result that's going on Garner told. ABC News in an interview on Tuesday. That lawsuit isn't about her. It's about constituents who want to see criminal justice reform in Saint Louis that could level the playing field for minorities proportionately affected by The current system Garner a registered nurse form of funeral director has managed to implement a diversion program for nonviolent defendants caught up in the justice system due to drug addiction. Her office has also stopped prosecuting people for low level marijuana possession but other reforms propose had been styling including wanting independent dependent investigation. A police involved shooting so this prosecutor wants an independent investigation when police shoot someone in the fighting cutting back on the police. Union has been stopped that they don't want independent investigators looking into when they shoot someone. Think about that. This is not about Kim Gardner. She added this is about certain individuals within these organizations that have gone beyond unprecedented amounts of coordination. To Stop the will of the people I had no choice but to act for the will of the people because they want me to fight for. What is right on Monday Gardner? The first black woman elected as chief prosecutor Saint Louis filed. Wow the federal rights lawsuit against the city in police union alleging she's endured racist and illegal efforts from opponents to block. Reforms meant to benefit minorities ladies. The suit accuses the city amd Police Union of violating the Ku Klux Klan Act of eighteen seventy one designed to combat white supremacy premacy organization. The suit also appears to mark the first time in elected local prosecutor has brought a federal case against police. You for racially motivated. Civil Rights rights violation. The suit claims to take aim at entrenched interests that Garner said had tried to prevent her reforms through a broad range of collusive conduct including the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate her office. The group of six black female prosecutors who and went to Saint Louis on Tuesday to rally support for Garner said that they can relate her struggles to buck the tide in implementing criminal. Justice reform quite candidly. Kim like others. Who stand before you? Today has challenged the status quo in the keepers of the status quo. Don't like that. which is why she's being personally and professionally attacked Baltimore City? State's attorney Maryland. Mosey set a news conference. Every prosecutor here has similar experiences to Kim. Moesby said she endured death threats and protests when our office prosecuted six Baltimore Police Officers after the twenty fifteen death of Freddie Gray. Rachel rollins the Suffolk County District Attorney in Massachusetts whose jurisdiction includes Boston said Garden's reputation is big brother spurts because she dares to try I build a system that is just for everyone not just those with wealth power and privilege remember. I talked about that a little bit before right. People don't want change because it's protecting a certain group the people in because it is exploitative of the minority and poorer class of people Ameris Iowa state's attorney for Orange and no scholar counties in Florida said she and other elected prosecutor supporting Garner in her legal fight represent diversity in the in the profession and we represent diversity. It's the of thought that is neutral criminal justice system despite unprecedented attacks we press on. I said Garda's lawsuit cites data data from the State Attorney General showing African Americans in Missouri are subject to to nearly twice as many traffic stops in arrest as white several races. Social media posts allegedly made Missouri. Police officers are also listened to complain in one. A former police division officer allegedly posted a photograph of of on facebook of an African American police officers standing with two African American demonstrators calling the officer. Captain Hug a thug in a disgrace to the a uniform. Not exactly sure what's racist inherently about that. But that's what they wrote in another lieutenant is is accused of posting. I'm not sure what the Hell is going on in our country. These days are Joe by in authentic Mexican restaurant in town and there are white guys putting on a new roof cutting the grass and doing landscaping manscaping. So I guess white people can't do can't put on roofs cut grass and do landscaping. I guess that's something that's only for Mexican people right. We regulate into certain industries. And that's all you can do for ticketless in another facebook post in Missouri USA wrote according to the lawsuit officer offered to sell L. T. shirt emblazoned with the word. Black lives splatter because blue lives matter. These police officers doing this allegedly the lawsuit also alleges that Saint Louis Police Officers Association has gone out of its way to support. White officers. Accused of perpetrating acts of violence in excessive force against African American citizens including the twenty fourteen shooting of Michael Brown. Additionally the Saint Louis a police officer association paid the bail. Jason Stockley await officer shot and killed African American Motorists Anthony Lamar Smith in twenty eleven according to the lawsuit now now if the that same S. L. P. O.. Egg Saint Saint. Louis Police Officers Association does not pay for the bail of a black officer who's accused of Of shooting someone then they Iran clearly. They are on Garner who sought to launch several police reforms a cooling improving investigations of policemen conduct in Saint Louis received threatening letters to our office that were filled was racial invective in some of the letters Garner was called racial. Slurs and various sexist expletives so that's a little bit what's going on you can read on that. ABC News So. I thought it was very interesting that she chose this eighteen. Seventy one and act. The Ku Klux Klan acknowledge not very familiar with that amount of a lawyer and attorney but just reading a little bit about you know Different various website. Apparently this was a law that was enacted to help to enforce the reconstruction efforts mostly in South Carolina but across the board after the civil war reconstruction goes on black. People are being voted into office. Black people are allowed to vote to becoming normalized naturalized citizens in able to express all of their rights right so they had to pass these laws thirteenth Fourteenth Fifteenth Amendment to the Constitution and. What are the laws that helped to enforce? This was this Ku Klux Klan Act which helped to break up the Ku Klux Klan? In any the group that would seek as a group of people with interest in supporting and maintaining white supremacy. So that is essentially what Miss Gardner is a sewing them under. Is that this group right. The Saint Louis Police Association and the city. Her allegations are is that they are seeking in banded together under the white supremacy in order to thwart the efforts of This one black citizen who has the right to WHO's essentially going to impact lies and many other black citizens right every person who under color of statue ordinance regulation custom or usage of any state of territory district of Columbia subjects subjects or causes to be subjected any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to be to the deprivation of any rights privileges or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws. Saab you're liable to the party injured in an action a law suit in equity or any other proper proceeding for redress right so a lot of that is a lot of legal ease. I don't really understand a lot of it. But this is what Miss Connor seeking to do. So I hope the justice prevails and if if it is true that the Right this is only one side door will getting one side of the story and show that the facts will be born out in court but if this is true than You know I hope that. Justice comes for Miss Gardner in for all these other states attorneys district attorney's across the nation who are feeling the brunt of this right. They're from California to Baltimore Down to Florida from two Massachusetts many of these states attorneys feel as if their their efforts towards criminal justice reform of being ordered By those who have a vested interest in keeping the status quo a sad part an sad reality about law enforcement is is that what is it is an institution is a system and unfortunately that system needs to feed upon people. What I what I mean by that prison systems as the union had been supportive of the continued criminalization of marijuana and other drugs? Now you have to think about why these unions would stand behind some kind of policy. He liked that while the more people would because obviously more people need to be arrested so that these people can be housing and car serrated as so therefore the prison officials can continue to have their jobs. Same thing with law enforcement right if you if you stop criminalizing and decriminalize marijuana and other drugs stop prosecuting people for simple possession. Then the arrests go now and therefore what are the police going to do right so this is a this is unfortunately a vicious cycle that that Ms Garner is this is seeking to stop this over criminals. Ation of people minority communities poor people and so a lot of police as officers are fighting back against that because okay if not arresting people for drugs than what are we doing all day right. Why how can we justify numbers? How can we justify our salary? So you want in someone. I hope. That justice prevailed and hope that the truth comes out for her. And how did it sets a precedent for all those prosecutors and other counties talked talked about traffic stops. Some of the things that Miss Gardner was looking into in Saint Louis nother story the cubs from Chicago is the ACLU is asking why minorities are still pull roll over much more than whites right so something that the ACLU is looking into from. The Chicago. Tribune The American Civil Liberties Liberties Union is asking why minorities still pull over much more often than whites. Despite court order reform by City Hall driver's color continued to be stopped at higher percentages. Tis Vander estimated local driving population and they are asked to consent to search more frequently with less. Contraband found Dan. Dan White drivers they were roughly. There were roughly four hundred. Ninety thousand traffic stops Chicago streets last year. More than two hundred thousand Isan than the previous year. According to the data from Illinois Department transportation it was the third consecutive year sharp increases about eighty six percent four hundred twenty one thousand involved minority motorists of those three hundred thousand. Were black that sixty one percent of the total number of people stopped in Chicago Twenty eighteen and even though African Americans are about thirty one percent of the city's two point seven million population near sixty eight thousand and stops involved the white motorists. There is a story. Worry here. Let me give the other side of the of the equations we can understand this Many times in we had to look at this. Are African Americans committing more traffic violations nations. That question has to be asked are recommending more traffic violations. I know that when we had a study in Connecticut concerning the same think I think in my own home city we were found to be stopping. African Americans more unfortunately a lot of times. Here's what's happened Take this for what it's worth and it's the honest to goodness truth. I think that you know by not going to give you some. Bs is that officers are often targeting targeting areas in neighborhoods. Where crime is is happening? It's just a fact it's just the fact that we want that right if there's shootings and gang activity in certain neighborhoods we need to target those neighborhoods in if we can stop op people if we can perform these type of motor vehicle stops and Get people to understand that there is a police presence then that that only worsened in in the favor right and it helps to bring on shootings and everything like that. It's only one of the tactics that can that is used to address a crime in certain neighborhoods and. That's one of the tactics tactic so we had to be very careful about when we asking law enforcement not to stop certain people because they are black and many times. And I'm going to ask you to do this as as you listen to this. Drive down the street and tried to tell What the race is of the person in front of you right Many times you can't you cannot tell many times you cannot tell the race. The person WHO's driving in front of you then people have tend to Windows nowadays and you cannot see into the windows In so many times you don't know but a person who's in front of you. Who runs a stop sign? Who Refuses to who speeds up at the Yellow Line tries to beat that light? That red light Many times you don't know what that rid the races. So that person in so the first thing I'm going to ask is what is the race. What is who is committing more of these types of infractions? Right first thing black I people have to do is stop committing more infraction. I don't know the numbers and Statistics Chicago. But I do know that when we were. We were approached a concerning turning these types of measures that we were able to justify the fact. That what we're doing when we gave the information as to where the crimes were happening where shootings were happening. Where are street-level robberies? Were happening and then we showed that our our enforcement actions and activities were geared towards those particular neighborhoods in those particular areas and so therefore for once again. We were stopping people who are committing infractions. motor-vehicle stops in those areas. And that's what we were doing so that may be exactly. Actually what Chicago was doing. If that is what's going on then I give them my whole heart in full support in what they're doing in that needs to be understood by people right so just because you gotta be very careful when you look at numbers and statistics because there may be reasons behind this. I'm not saying not to look into I'm not saying that the ACLU and other watch groups now look into these matters but there may be a justification for it right there may be a justification for what's going on so you can read more about that and the a Chicago Tribune namely articles as traffic stops by Chicago. POLICE SPIKE ACU ask. Why minorities are still pulled all over much more than whites sticking with Chicago just for a minute here? This was a story I think from December but I'll mention it again here again is that they the new interim police chief that they have has decreased the or eliminated the merit system for promotions things. And I think that that's very key when we talk about police corruption when we talk about why police officers playing drugs on people while they are selling drugs and trying to boost up their numbers burson trying to increase their arrests. What the question is why a lot of times they doing that? Well the merit system is essentially. Someone's going up for promotion if Chicago has some type of A testing process I e a written test in on maybe some type of oral board presentation Then maybe another component of the testing process is merit test right. So how many arrests do you get. How many drugs are you getting off the street? How many guns are you able to find? How many arrests how? How many tickets? How many citations and so therefore officers are judged by that? Maybe you want a promotion. Maybe obser- once a promotion. Maybe they're they want a special assignment to work with the DA or joint some type of narcotics or gun task force and so they have they want to show that they have that ability to find drugs to get drugs off the street To make these arrests and things like that by taking away this merit system you take away the incentive for officers to Plant ain't drugs on people because they're not trying to boost numbers you take away the officers and center for arresting people because you take away the incentive to do that right so maybe they've implemented something. More strict is now more of a academics right. So now it's how well you perform on these tests right written and oral Zo. So so I think that's a very important very very important and very good on their part. So that's just finish up here. California polices another store. That's going around and country where many people I think. Even Chicago had a problem with this one time as well. California police are false. Labeling people as gang members it's part of a bigger crisis if they label people as gang members right and most of them obviously minority people labeling them as gang members get harsher sentencing guidelines mostly mostly the consequences of this this are harsher sentencing guidelines. But once you get labeled as a gang member right it's hard to get your name off of this list right. You're labeled as a young kid and if you're caught in the wrong place at the wrong take time to unranked. Probably doing the wrong thing. Then a you got this label on you as a gang member right urine database. And now they're going to treat you a different way right and so it's easy to get on. This is gang member less right. Maybe if you're seen hanging with these people or weren't certain color walking on the street You know the the getting onto this list can be very easy getting your name offer. This list is incredibly incredibly difficult. So so that's something we can keep an eye on but but this comes from the intelligence or in Y MAG DOT COM California. Police are falsely lamey people's gang members. It's part of a bigger crisis this right so again you have to watch out for people who have their own vested interest at this do other incentives for officers to find more gang members. Numbers right if you if you got to go out there and get us more gang members and do your job and get more drugs off the street if you can't find them legally right or now. You can't find people actually doing what they're doing doing so now you just. I saw you know a well. Known Gang member He's eating lunch with his nephew. And I'm GonNa Label that nephew as a gang member. Well that's unfair to the nephew. afew right is he actually been seen committing gang crimes. I'm putting up quotations there right Zeke's been seeing committing gang crimes and all that kind of stuff so you have to be very very very cautious about who is being placed on this. We understand that. There's been some GonNa be some reforms concerning going on in Mississippi. Mississippi's had some riots. At least ten people at last report that I heard had been killed one of them has died by suicide. The new incoming governor down there Mississippi has promised reforms. Apparently he's taken a tour of the prisons down there and called the conditions that the people down they're living in terrible So there he's promised to crack down on a corrupt. CEO's right corrections officers cut down on the cell phones. How these inmates are getting cell phones? As most obviously through the corrections Wrexham's officers bringing them in they made the crutches officers may have gang ties themselves have been given kickbacks and things like that this is a story that's going to be going on and growing on So fortunately people like Jay Z and others filing lawsuits on their behalf. And just trying to bring some some some sense to this insanity because it's crazy that this is going on right in. I think one of the reasons that I'm GONNA say cynically is one of the reasons that they don't want the cellphones in there because Some of the videos videos and pictures were getting out and they obviously they don't want the pictures and videos getting out but let's take a more positive respect and say that one of the reasons that the governor's governor is giving for one of the crackdown on the cell phones. Of course I threw that they're about about the pictures getting out of the public but one of the reasons is that there's there's the governor's claiming that this is how they're the prison inmates are coordinating attacks and things like that. So which is why which is value which is Completely possible. But you know I don't. I don't doubt that also you got to make sure that the officers in the good. CEO's corrected officers and inmates in whatever are safe so that's fine so the last story I want to talk about today is the story. The comes from rare in the name of the story is a man calls cops and grow phone for being too rough during sex on believable. If you go to that story right you can read it You you can look at a mugshot out of this Lady just in hears it from the article. Just look at this Mugshot I love it. Does this really look like a person who could do damage. No it doesn't but apparently apparently this evil evil woman did so much show. She was arrested twenty four year old. Kristen Paris was booked in Davidson County. Jail after her boyfriend Taylor. Hayes called police when he when she got too rough with him during sex believable. Can you imagine how the call your mom from jail singer arrested. We're having a wild night of passionate sex. According to authorities Metro Nashville police were dispatched to Hayes apartment on January first for domestic assault call. Hey told police that. His girlfriend began to bite scratching during sex and there was way beyond the scope of their normal intimacy. Hey show police to bite marks one in his arm and one along is back with several scratch marks to his back. DOC UNREAL UNREAL. I'm not even GonNa read the rest of that story just ridiculous. You got to call the police over. That and a police arrested her. Jeez I get domestic violence. In many cases in circumstances many states have taken leave the authority away from the complainant and from the police right. We we no longer have discretion to make arrests. You have to make an arrest. And so here's here's what we here's what we're left with. This guy calls the cops on his girlfriend because he scratched up his back and was biting him during sex In so the police found owned by laws handcuffed can make any kind of discretionary Decisions to have the party separate from the night or anything like that to go their own ways as has to make an arrest. Now don't get me wrong. I'm not saying and I actually agree. With much of the case case laws Much of the decisions by the courts that in court and the legislature who have said that the police should not be able to have discretion in actual domestic violence cases. Right one one person is mad at the other one in you making an you're doing threatening behavior and physical violence but here's a case of sacks so cooler heads have to prevail in all's Consta- but so I just audrey leave you with a little bit of Levity the Anat thank you very much for tuning into capital hunters podcast. If you have any stories make sure that she's send them to me so I can read them through the month. Still got a lot of great episode coming up a lot of great interviews bets it much love and much peace.
