'cause my video has been mike delayed intermittently during the day. You look fine so far. Good big part of the silence around pregnancy loss. The failure to acknowledge that loss is that we don't always have a shared understanding of what it is or how it shows up. There are lots of ways that people described pregnancy loss. We're using that phrase here but some people describe it as a miscarriage for an example in the medical field. We describe it as a spontaneous abortion. All of those mean the same thing that pregnancy stopped growing Typically in the first trimester but not always. Dr parents says that most of the time it's unclear why pregnancy loss happens. That's why we call it. Spontaneous typically in the way. That i talk about it with people that i care for. It's nature's way of ending a pregnancy. That wasn't going to be able to continue on.

What The Cherry Blossom Bloom Can Tell Us About Climate Change

"Canopies of pink and white flowers are blanketing washington. Dc right now. After the city's cherry trees hit full bloom last week. Dc's first cherry trees were gift from japan and the city of kyoto. The cherry trees bloomed even earlier. In fact kyoto's peak. Bloom was the earliest on record. For twelve hundred years following pattern of earlier and earlier blooms since the eighteen hundreds when a cherry blossoms can reflect climate change. A pattern of early blooms can indicate warming springtime temperatures. But it's complicated the intellectual. Climate change is indisputable. I think however the decisive factor for the j. blossoms is the winter temperature now. Go obey is a journalist and author of the sacre obsession. She says cherry trees need a full month of cold temperatures in order to properly blossom when it gets warmer. If they don't get the chilly weather for a month then they blossom later because they can't make up trouble so while early blooms caused by warm springs are troubling delayed. Blooms may also be the result of warming winters and the south of japan has already seen delayed blooms in recent years in southern japan. The rinta isn't cold enough for long enough on so the muslims are coming out later as much as by a week as winter. Temperatures continue to rise obey says. The delays may grow to the point. Where trees don't blossom at all. The trees in dc's tidal basin. Are yoshino cherries. That variety also makes up about seventy percent of all the cherry trees in japan. Yoshi knows are easy to propagate they begin blossoming after only five years and they gained popularity in japan in the nineteen th century while other cherry species were forgotten and went extinct.

"Burger Repudiating Earl Award. Keep track of that shit but this this kind of solidifies as the conservative position over the course of the nineties George W Bush's a Justice Department essentially adopts the NRA position in full and public opinion shifts over the whole timeframe to over the half century ish period in nineteen nineteen fifty nine. Gallup found that sixty percent of Americans favored banning handguns by nineteen. Seventy five it was forty one percent by two thousand twelve. It was twenty four percent just before this case comes down. Seventy three percent of Americans believe the Second Amendment protected the individual's right to possess weapons when it did come down Barack Obama. Then presidential candidate spoke in favor of the decision yet he also to like deal with his like they cling to their guns and religion. He might not have actually supported it and he was Getting a bit maybe Holland Titian. Maybe he was politician but no I mean look the point is he had to position himself as Serena Vision. The American people were at a place where that was politically expedient if not politically necessary yes right. So turning to the background of how the Heller case gets to the Supreme Court you know I always loved to talk about the scary Little Gremlins. Bring these cases to to our esteemed justices. Here's how this goes down back in around two thousand and two senior fellow at the Cato Institute and the Institute for Justice of both of these are libertarian think tanks they start vetting potential plaintiffs for a second amendment lawsuit. Robert Levy is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute at the time. He's the author of the book. The dirty dozen. How Twelve Supreme Court cases radically expanded government and eroded freedom. He's just like some old rich entrepreneur and he says I'm going to finance this lawsuit myself personally. That's how strongly I feel about this. And in fact he's quoted in The Washington Post when talking about the case quote. I don't actually want to gun. I mean maybe I'd want a gun if I was living on Capitol Hill or in Anacostia somewhere but I live in Naples Florida in a gated community. I don't feel real threatened down here a Shitload of coded racism and disdain for poor people every time this guy opens his mouth a little bit later same interview. He says quote even when I lived up there. I didn't live in DC. I lived in Chevy Chase in a high rise that was secure risk cheese like Tony like Maryland suburb. Yes whatever. I don't remember hearing a say so in case we have it. The law being challenged in this case was a complete ban on private handgun ownership in Washington. Dc read right. Yeah and Robert Levy says whatever the price of this lawsuit is. He's going to foot the bill and he'll do so quote happily because he says I'm in a position to pay for it. Robert Levy says that the Washington DC ban on handguns quote. It offends my constitutional sensibilities. Okay so as they're looking for plane constitutional abilities. I'm imagining being so easy that you can you think about the constitution and what offense running lost zero impact on your Lewis and really help anyone. He's just like I would almost respect it if he was like. My reasoning is that this would help people protect themselves or something like that. But he's just I don't think this interpretation of the constitution is correct. I'm going to spend fifteen million dollars right exactly. I was just GonNa say listening. This Guy Talk I I kinda wish left his said some more. Second Amendment Constitutional. Panthers where are you we need you? The tree of liberty needs to be I so they're strategic about the plaintiffs that they choose right. Levy says multiple times publicly. They want economic diversity in the plaintiffs that they're choosing to take this case gender age racial diversity. They want the optics of this to look like. Look this is just regular. People are law abiding citizens who should have an individual right to bear arms So the case status filed in the lower court. They end up choosing six plaintiffs. It's three men and three women and four of them are white. Two of them are black now. The appellate court eventually knocks out five of the plaintiffs. Because the court says these plaintiffs actually. Don't have standing to sue because they hadn't tried to register for a handgun in DC. That leaves one plaintiff left. And that's how we get the case named Heller. The guy that's left is Dick. Anthony Heller. Now we have to take some time to talk about this. Little Freak is freaky dicky he this guy is a licensed special police officer in DC. I interpret those words to me and this is a rent a Cop. And where do you get a license? You can't become a crate pushups to become a real right He carries a gun at work but he has to leave it there when he goes home because of because of the ban on handgun possession in DC Back in nineteen ninety six so years before this lawsuit he and his roommate. Dane von break and rue chartres fucking white people and they're on their names They didn't change what happened there. He and his Kuku Lulu Roommate started the US bill of Rights Foundation which they basically used to disseminate their a wild views about small government and guns and they purposely decided to have Mister Heller apply for a handgun. That he'll be denied so that they could preserve a legal claim to challenge the ban. So they had thought about this for a long time after this case Just to give you an idea of where Mr Heller runs with this. In two thousand eight he goes on to create the Heller Foundation whose mission is to promote quote a world where arms and self defense rights are considered as essential to human life as food and water website. You have to go to the website. The website is absolutely nuts. It's a bunch of photos of like in cell works raising their fists. Like my mom just told me that. I look cute. And my and and there's random quotes riddled all over the website with typos like in a free country. One does not permission from gove to own a firearm. And it's like it's like a banner at the top of the website. It's it's fantastic slow. Enter and Scalia. This is an incredibly lengthy off. In convoluted opinion we do not have the time energy or emotional fortitude to make our way through it entirely here but there are several parts that are particularly stupid. And we're GONNA talk about those first. You WanNa talk about the primary thrust of both scalise majority and justice seaton's descent as we noted. The historical record about the intent of the Second Amendment is very sparse. Nevertheless the majority opinion is predicated in the idea that a historical analysis could definitively establish whether or not there is a second amendment right to the individual possession of arms and both Scalia and Stevens sort of go at it on this front right and like the number of intellectually hollow assumptions. Here is mind blowing that there is a clear historical answer to this question that it could be accurately gleaned from the limited record we have and a justice of the Supreme Court successfully do it. And we'RE NOT GONNA turn ourselves into hypocrites by trying to debunk the historical claims in like some sort of orchestrated manner. We're going to try to stick to the legal arguments here and lucky for us. There are some bad ones yet throw again. The amendment reads a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a Free State. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. And there's a question of what to do about the quote. Prefatory clause the portion that says a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a Free State. And so the question that kind of jumps in your mind immediately is whether the fact that the right follows from a statement about a well regulated militia means that the right is limited to the context of the militia and clear has a couple of answers to this question but the big one is that it doesn't really matter because Scalia says that this clause is for interpretive purposes largely irrelevant the prefatory clause as he calls. It is a statement of purpose. That doesn't impact the right and I want to give this argument a little bit of credence because I think it's not totally nonsensical as an argument. What he's saying is that the reason being provided for the right isn't relevant because no matter what the reason is the bottom line is that the amendments establishes the right to give an analogy. If I said you can use our pool because it's hot outside you can arguably say that because it's hot outside isn't really irrelevant part of that. What's relevant is that? I'm letting you use the pool. Which means you can use it. Yeah and some ways. This makes sense right. The reason for the right can be viewed as sort of background information. The bottom line is the amendment gives you the right to bear arms but the problem with that in this particular context is that the reason being provided no longer applies even a little bit. There are no more. Well regulated militias so to use the same analogy. As as if I said you can use our pool because it's hot outside but in fact it's not even a little bit hot health side or it's never going to be hot right right. In that case. Suddenly the reason seems a little more relevant right and this is a long way of saying it and I'm trying to give him some credit here but this dumbest shit another analogy I literally just thought of now is like you can crash it my place. I'm Outta town. Are we just sharing a fighting bed? Go head to toe. Look the entire reason. The right exists. According to the amendment is gone. That's not a relevant to the interpretation of the amendment it is crucial to the interpretation of amendment right just a couple of episodes ago we talked about how fraudulent the idea that. S- clear is an ardent. Textualist is and here's another example right. This is plainly him working backwards from his conclusion. He knows that he can't bring the prefatory clause into the analysis too much because as soon as you're faced with the fact that like the militias are crucial to the amendment. It's sitting on shaky ground right so he wants kind of reason right to discard with it. He does sort of say that even if you do assume that it matters that he still right but he's trying to create avenues through which he can sort of maintain deniability and right. So let's get to the next part of his argument. Which is what say well regulated militia and this is sort of this backup plan right like you know what if you have to factor in the prefatory clause and he's saying look look. It's still okay. And he says that according to historical sources the militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. And that's how he argued that the individual right to carry arms is related to the concept of the militia. Everyone can carry a weapon because everyone needs one because everyone's part of the militia right right and again we don't WanNa get too deep into the history here but there are some definite logical issues with what Scalia is doing i. The militia at the time of the Second Amendment was not like justice conceptual thing that was theoretically comprised of able bodied men. It was a literal militia controlled by the states that all able bodied men were required to serve in including mandatory military exercises like that doesn't exist now no thing exists currently period and pretending it does that's just fantasy world shit which is a shame because I think it'd be pretty cool if me and the boys you WANNA.

Most scholars believed the Second Amendment only protected the right to bear arms in the context of a well regulated militia but in two thousand eight in the case. Dc TV Heller. The Supreme Court ruled the Second Amendment was actually being much broader protecting the right of every individual to own guns. The court really opened up a whole new chapter.

"This is one of their happy. Be Moments Yeah So. We're going to start with mildred Muhammad. Going to the store. This is where she meets John. She is twenty three years old. It it is one thousand nine hundred eighty three and it's Baton Rouge Louisiana which is where both of them live so. Mildred grows up in a conservative Christian House. Her father leaves when she's four key dies when she's nine and so she has no relationship with her father at all. She's raised by her mother mother most of her life at the time that she meets John Is Church work. She has a Adleman position at the Department of Labor in Louisiana. She goes to church. She has her friends. But it's kind of a small life and she really wants to find a man to share the life with but she has no relationship experience variance at all. She knows about romantic relationships from TV and movies basically so she's like Toni Collette at the start of a lot of movies. Yes she's every. Toni Collette Movie. Yes so she says much later in the book she recalls. When I was sixteen years old someone broke into our home and attempted but did not succeed? In raping me. uh-huh my brother was president and too high to help me. Oh my God I remember that. It was my brother's friend who had broken into the house of friend who had come over earlier to visit him. Only you to unlock the window. So he could get back in later he had never been caught. It took me six months to sleep in my room again until then I slept with my mother so she talks about throughout this book is. She's never felt safe. Then this is the end of her sort of feeling secure in her own home and part of what she searching for and of course he doesn't realize this until decades later is somebody to make her feel safe insecure. She just has this kind of sense of anxiety all the time. This is GonNa be a story where you're a woman marries the first man who shows an interest in her. Yeah unfortunately okay continue the military. It's going to the store. Yeah just going to the store. She sees a guy sort of making is at her and kind of flirty looking at her and then her friend friend. WHO's in the store comes back? And she's like that guy over there is looking at me and then her friend goes. Oh that's John. Hey John and so he immediately just walked up at their car and says hi mildred. I'm John What are you doing tonight. And just goes straight in. She perhaps assumes that forward nece the same thing as someone really liking her. Yeah Yeah you know she. She doesn't know how this works right and she really likes the fact that he's very upfront about everything. So she agrees to a date they go out and on their first date. He looks her in the eye and is like I'm looking for someone to share my life with. I really want to somebody. And she is like yeah asked me to write. Because that's what she wants and so immediately they dive into this extremely intense relationship with each other and they both. I mean they're both telling the truth. Yes I'm sure they both Kislyak really want Jaka partner in their lives and the problem is that if that's the main thing that you have in common unlike you might not have other things have come and it's also I mean this is. This is sort of the honeymoon period. I mean as in so many eventually souring relationship this becomes the period that both of them are aspiring spiring to return to. which is the part where everything's doing your Taya now time? And so he picks her up from work and we'll just sort of start driving and she's like where we going and he'll look in the back seat and there's two fishing poles and he's like where do you go fishing. And they catch fish in the river and they fry up the fish and her mom's house and he's great to her mom he starts fixing fixing stuff up in her house. It's really nice period. He's treating her really well and this is also the point where she starts to ask him about his past. She finds out that he grew up in Baton Rouge and partly New Orleans. His mother is from Antigua. She dies breast cancer. When he's young he tells her that he was five when she died she later speaks his family members and they say that he was two when she died but whenever it age he was he was really attached to his mother and appears that she it was holding him when she died? Oh my God. And he'll make these sort of offhand comments like he never talks about his childhood. He's super guarded. But every once in a while after they hang out with pillagers Mon- he'll make some comment like I missed my mom. I wonder what it's like to have one She has very traditional ideas about gender so she says in the book when he said things things like this. It always made me want to prove my love right that she wants to take care of him. She also finds that after his mom dies him and his brothers brothers and sisters he has five brothers and sisters they go to live with relatives in baton. Rouge this is from a later court. Filing this is from a court filing that John makes just just before his execution in two thousand eight. The children moved into their grandparents three bedroom house where they lived with twenty other people and were beaten forced to eat black-eyed peas separately from everyone else. Every night prevented from entering the house during the day and never told their birthdays until they were older. Their uncle Felton holiday. A reform school guard later convicted of battery with a dangerous weapon for beating a minor to death what constantly attacked Mohammed was allegedly forced a place his hand on a spark plug while his grandfather guy holiday pulled the court. Wow I don't even know what that would do what I mean. That seems really really bad. Yeah it sounds like I mean. She doesn't get very much detail on what actually happened to him but it sounds like this was profoundly awful and something that he he never wants to talk about it. This this is based on their relationship where he ever talks about his childhood and they just leave it for the rest of the relationship so she's two months into the relationship they're are getting more deeply attached to each other. It's going really. Well she is hanging out with her friend Valente. who was her friend who was with her at the store that day and chatting and you know how are things John? How are things going? And she's like. Oh it's like we're getting much more serious. I really liked this guy like this could be the real thing and Bellina says well. You should probably know that he's married. Eight oh crap oh Chine yeah. Now he's married to a woman in Carol. He has two sons by two different women. This is this is so interesting. Mildred says I had no way of knowing he gave me his phone number. But I had never actually dialed it. Because he was always the one who called me they both have very traditional additional ideas about gender. that it's always hin who suggests dates for them interesting. Wow you can see where those ideas about gender may have come from how nice how if you Never Column Hall Emmanuel Sin Ever Find Out he has a wife right so they basically they have this conversation where she's like you're married. I found out and he's like well. You you know the marriage is breaking up and you're the real one to me and she's someone who you know we've already drifted apart. We're already with not even really a real marriage anymore just staying together because because of the sun and this is like very indicative of the way that she is at this point she says my girlfriends and I were indoctrinated to believe that men could do they want it and that it cheating man was not the same thing as cheating woman as long as the man was bringing the money home and taking care of the bills. Everything else should be excused and forgiven. The woman was expected elected to keep quiet cook. Clean take care of the children and not cause any problems and so the way that she conceives. This is not that he's a prick and he's lying to her the way that she conceives conceives of it is his wife must not be taken care of him enough. She says toward the end of her book. He says in retrospect. I can't help but notice how little anger I had at him. Mm for lying to me. I think it's also interesting to look at how the guest on the small scale is the same as the large scale right and who having having social ideas that allow women to completely avoid blaming men the men are doing and instead skip straight over to blaming other women right rows rouse men to kind of maintain complete control and complete discretion. Yes I feel like so many of ideas about gender are informed by this. It's like how do we. How do we get women to guest? Always blame other women for holy and then that's what a women will be the only person who benefits from this conception is the man right like the wife doesn't benefit from it. The girlfriend doesn't benefit from it now. Both of them are blaming each other and the man gets to be this sort of act of God in between them who has no moral moral responsibility for any of his action no the wife and the girlfriend or like velociraptor and the T.. Rex at the park and the man scaping. This is also the conversation where he tells her that he can't read. Oh Shit at the time. He's in the National Guard and he's doing odd jobs but he has gone through his entire life basically like faking his way through academic institutions. Like he has he graduated from high school. Aw when she asks him how did you do that. He says he basically just like has a photographic memory. And there's a couple of words that he's memorized and then he'll find excuses as for other people to read things out loud to him so we'll say like Oh. I just like the way that it sounds. Do you mind reading that out loud or with road signs. He'll say like oh sorry like there's something something in my I do you mind reading that road sign for me. He's gotten through his life like this and nobody else knows. How old is he at this point like thirty? He's twenty four. She's He's twenty three. He's twenty four. Wow I feel like it's like you have to be very intelligent. Yes to be able to get to the age of twenty four in graduate in high school and be employed and support a family without knowing how to read that whole time. That was in my notes to tell you like this because to me. This is a sign of great intelligence agents and greet manipulation. Yeah great ability to present a false front and two. That's amazing and sad. It's really sad. It's sadly amazing. It's amazingly sad and it also explains so much of his personality to that. He spent essentially his entire childhood. Faking it with everybody and just constantly telling lies when he wasn't being electrocuted. Yeah he also there's also he says in court filings later that there may have been brain damage from the abuse. Yeah I I would imagine an adult..

"His wife had been murdered. mm-hmm into it's stories like that. I'm proud that we were able to tell so that we can really make sure that it's not the story of the DC sniper. It's the story of the people who survived the story of the family members of those. Who didn't it's the story of the investigators behind the scenes like view and Tim? US MARSHALS DC police. Everyone in the area all trying to catch this killer and I don't know if any of our listener saw but I was on Dr Oz with Tim just the Tuesday I believe. And we'll try to maybe post a link or or something on our site but the fact is that at that taping. I actually met Mildred Muhammad. The ex wife of one of the snipers favors and it was great meeting her and she's very strong and brave woman and we're facebook friends and it turns out that she reached out to me years before I didn't know because I wasn't even aware that there was a list of pending questions or notes on my facebook page age I was. I'm not very good at all that but really yes and but I did belatedly answer the question that she asked me. She had reached out. Because I had written an episode of criminal minds in which I mentioned the DC sniper case and what the true motive was behind that series series of horrific killings and was very happy and complementary that we done that on a national television. Oh Vision show that actually is international. Goes around the world. I think. Sixty three million people watch it around the world and so because of that we got her story out and she was very grateful for that. And I don't know maybe she'll agree to do an addendum to God and we can tell her story in even even more due to one. I think one of the reasons that I wanted to talk to you about this today and get this out to our listeners was because I know how much our listeners appreciate going going behind police lines and this audible original like all of our projects I think are designed to do exactly that. We're taking people. Aw behind police lines in a way that they've never heard before in talking to people that they've never heard from before and it's more than seven hours. It's not a podcast it's like A. It's a documentary but it's just an audio documentary but it is the prosecutor who prosecuted did the DC sniper the people who went and saw the punishment meted out to the DC sniper. I mean all of these things are part of the story and it allowed us to tell such a comprehensive story an inside look in a way that a podcast just Canada important is that we want to you give our listeners. The insight that we have had because we worked in this field for decades. And there's no question that the the details that we have in guide and its predecessor. Evil has a name and the ones that come afterwards like injustice collector. You're going to hear things and understand a little better. What it's like to be a law enforcement officer on the front lines risking your life trying to investigate things because you're trying to save lives and of course our motivation in doing that has always been the victims? We don't want there to be faithful love to be able to prevent crime. Unfortunately we can't do that all the time but we can. When somebody's a serial offender we can stop them from continuing to offend fan and luckily to work together and I mean literally hundreds of other local law enforcement officers and other federal agencies?

His defense team alleged that his younger brothers Durrell and Stefan where are the real killers and content into going to the Savalas home the day of the murders and that Jordan Wallace. Sa's assistant who brought the ransom to the house may may have been involved. Prosecutors called these claims utterly ridiculous especially considering the fact that went with her boasting about the murders to fellow inmates as he awaited trial based on evidence. And the timeline of known events assistant attorney Laura Bach said wint tortured the four victims mentally and physically for almost twenty four hours adding quote. It is clear that some of the victims James heard and saw the deaths of their loved ones realizing both they were going to meet the same fate and that there was nothing they could do to save those that they cared about Silva's assistant Jordan testified that nothing seemed unusual. The days leading up to the murderers he was helping us us. Prepare for the grand opening of the new martial arts studio sometime during the evening of May thirteenth without realizing the family was being held hostage he. He received a voicemail from savvas letting him know there had been a change of plans and asking him to report to the American Iron Works Office. The following morning to retrieve a package in that voicemail which was played for Jurors Salva sounded upbeat. He even joked about Jordan's outdated voicemail greeting was was he trying to give the impression that all was well so that no one would be harmed or harmed further at that point. Did he believe they could all make it out. Alive live if they just played along when the voicemail message sounded in court Jordan broke down crying on the stand. He said that when he he picked up the package as instructed Ted Chase the company's chief financial officer handed it to him and said guard this with your life. Those words almost almost prophetic now. Jordan described his reaction as holy crap. Never before had he seen so much money shortly after ten. The next morning Jordan received a text from Savas telling him to leave the package in the driver's seat of a red sports car parked in the family's garage. Don't knock he instructed. Claiming he was in the middle of an important conference call so Jordan did as he was asked texted his boss package delivered and went on with his work day. Stopping a meal on his way to a hardware store everything Jordan's testimony including leading his whereabouts. A particular time checked out a few hours after leaving the package into sports car Jordan heard from a colleague who alerted him to a fire at the Savoy Apple is home. He and others tried frantically to reach amy and Savvas but it was too late. One particularly eagerly powerful witness for the prosecution gave what was considered a wildcard testimony. Darren wince brother Durrell who Darren had called. The mastermind of the murderers took the stand spending the better part of an entire day in court responding to questions about his activities on May thirteenth with two thousand fifteen. He said he had only vague memories about the day. which some say helped the defense's argument that he was extremely dreamily involved? But we also know that random days on which nothing standup happened aren't terribly memorable. Imagine trying to remember exactly exactly what you did. Three years ago on a particular Thursday. Darren defense team. Tried to cast doubt around whether Durell might have been involved with the murderer's but cell phone records showed. He wasn't anywhere near the palace home during the days and question the day investigators trailed his brother down down with Durrell and the truck ahead of him. Durell testified that after Darren called him multiple times that day they met up at their father's house where Durrell all told his brother. He had to pick up supplies at Walmart. Darren wanted to take along and asked if they could make a stop to pick up fuel for his truck that had run out of gas on the side of some road so they stopped for gas. Darren filling a large bucket then. They headed to Walmart security footage showing the brothers at that store was played for the jury after they left the Walmart. Durell testified that Darren started directing him to a spot near a warehouse this supposedly to refill out of gas car. He said his brother got out of the vehicle for about five minutes taking with him. A bag maybe plastic holding thing. He didn't know what Durell said. His brother then seem distracted when he returned like things weren't right as they drove away. durell spotted smoke hoke coming from the area Darren had just been. He told the prosecuting attorney that at this point he knew something looked suspect. He didn't ask him about it. He said because he preferred to stay out of people's business. The next morning Darren called Durell more than two dozen times calls Durell says he intentionally ignored ignored and their cousin helps. Darren burn his own car during the police led manhunt for his brother. Durell new Darren was a wanted man and posters featuring his face were everywhere. So the next time Darren phoned him he answered. He didn't ask his brother if he was guilty or innocent because he said he didn't want to know but he feared for Darren safety that he'd get hurt possibly by police so he told Darren he needed to come the home and turn himself in. Originally they plan to purchase money orders to pay for an attorney. He said thus the ten thousand dollars cash Durell L. also said he sought guidance from his cousin. Roger who agreed to help him if Darren wouldn't wait to turn himself in he also insisted on driving a separate car. So Roger drove the white truck ahead of the car holding Darren and Durrell. They were on their way to turn him in when investigators found them during cross examination. Prosecutors asked Durell if he wanted to take the stand he said no he didn't want to be there and it was disappointing. That's my big brother. He said according to court records he should be ashamed of himself for real. He also made it clear that while he received a subpoena to testify defy and spoke with prosecutors in advance. He had nothing to hide and never requested immunity. In the end Darren went was found guilty on all all twenty counts in the DC mansion murders and given four consecutive life sentences for brutalizing and taking the lives of forty six year.

I had my hand over over the wound but it wasn't like in the movies with blood gushing out I explained that I'd been shot needed help but it didn't seem to register in her brain and quote Iran started fading fast by the time he was airlifted to the paramedics trauma unit at Children's National Medical Center in DC. He lost twenty percent of his blood when they were able to go in surgery they found that the bullet damaged his lungs spleen stomach pancreas and diaphragm so he was rushed in right away bullet fragments are recovered from his stomach sent to ballistics which of course they match and by some miracle after a grueling recovery Iran survives now this attack in particular didn't quite seem to register anywhere at first because it was almost too horrific to contemplate employees the sniper isn't just going after adults now there are children involved Iran shooting galvanized law enforcement so now you have a situation where primarily adults were shot no particular race no particular agenda just randomly shot but it was when Iran Brown who was thirteen years old at the time was cat became the various seminal moment in terms of the investigation this same day October Seventh Montgomery County Sheriff of Police Charles Moose puts in a formal letter to the Department of Justice Seeking Federal Assistance now the Department of Justice handles federal law enforcement issues and basically the umbrella agency that oversees the FBI the ATF cf US marshals and like a ton more so if you want official involvement from any of them you have to go through the Department of Justice I even do ahead guys on the ground again ATF was there and some FBI folks were there but it was at that point there we redraft this letter all the resources of the federal government was brought into it while local local law enforcement is collaborating with the FBI back at police headquarters officers are still on the scene in booey searching for clues they traipse carefully through the wooded areas near Iran's middle school we're specially trained explosive sniffer dogs locate a shell casing and a new clue a a strange clue Ba- found a Tarot card it was the card of death and inscribed on it were the words call me me God now call me God was on the front the three lines that were written on the back make it clear that this was no accident and the sniper for is actively trying to communicate with law enforcement so again on the front is call me God when you flip it over on the back it said four you Mr Police piece under that Code Commie Guide under that some very specific instructions do not release us to the press but the press gets a hold of this information anyway and news of the card and its contents is all over the headlines in less than twenty me four hours FBI agent Gary Ball told the Washingtonian back in two thousand twelve that there were leaks in the investigation that caused real problems now meanwhile chief Moose's request is granted and the Department of Justice Approves Official Federal Involvement so one of the first things we did we set up a commandos within the Montgomery County Police Department that first space is too small for all the people in the investigation that are coming and going twenty twenty four hours a day seven days a week so they quickly relocate to the top floor of the building next door this is a huge operation at this point with agents analysts investigators a call center people working a call center like you name it and it was there and the local media wants a piece of all of it the media was where there was a there was a thirst for information and they got very very aggressive we are up on a top level of of this building and there was one circumstance we we.

It's going to have to happen this week and it's going to be piecemeal through the week as we go through the Miami preparation but that cultural it's always changing and I think for our players it'll they'll see some slight changes to schedules that way we practice the focus of what world what will the man in the meeting rooms so they'll be a little bit of a shift in that respect bill you we've had conversations from very detail oriented individual and he said right now the way things are they don't sit well with the five start I'm sorry one more time I said you're you and I talked very detail oriented and you said that the way that things are in US own five-star does not sit well with you how what are the changes that you hope to make over the next eleven games what are the things that you saw over the first five games that you think to yourself it's something that we need to change in order to have a different outcome these next eleven games of the season I think first off the the identity you've who you are what you want to be take place I envisioned ourselves as a as a running team I like to get our run game going I think that's important because everything else is complementary off it the run action passes and protections off of it compliment you're running game we can if we can move them to down we can play football and go from I down to I as a second down the first down that would be huge and nor to do that the consistency the game is going to have to take place so that run identity and not only helps us be the fiscal team that we want to be but it lends itself benefits and every other area the fence clock time letting them sit on the pine a little bit so we're really conscious of making net shift in we have we have stable running backs we've got confidence in and that'll be the focus going forward for offs that's one of the areas in that respect live from Washington.

"Been in v very early. Eighteen hundreds DC gave the part of DC long-term Virginia back to Virginia could DC give the part of DC that used to belong to Maryland back to Maitland, your Representative from Alan. So there's a great question to ask you. Well, I think it's a better question as the citizens of the district Columbia because it ought to be their choice. We, we are a nation that believes in citizens have in the choice, put a Rico, we've mentioned Puerto Rico. They have a choice. They can be an independent nation. They can be a state, whether they're Commonwealth out of the United States is really a decision of the United States. But having said that frankly, I think that takes for granted that we can just push the residents of the district Columbia wherever we wanna place them. They really ought to have that choice, and they made a clear choice. They made a very clear choice that they want to be an independent sovereign state of the union, and in that context, that's what. They ought to be the choice has been made people go into the polls, they were asked to want to become a state, and they voted overwhelmingly to become a state. You can't take a city, which has acted in every way, like a state is treated even for capita distribution of federal funds, like state and squeeze it into Maryland. Malan has only one big cities Baltimore, you change the entire character of the state of Maryland. No wonder Maryland would have to think twice. And of course, the district has thought more than twice it wants to be made. A compromise. We merge, the Dakotas together, put them back into Wednesday 'cause it was some gerrymandering, the first place and, you know, you could consolidate the number of states. Okay. All right. Next, I mentioned the partisan implications and that is something that I want to get into because it is going to be an obstacle that Democrats will have to overcome. And also, it kind of raises questions about how important of an issue this is now. And when you listen to national Democrats and activists around the country oftentimes on the left of us, we need to make structural changes in order to ensure the Democrats can pass their agenda on a federal level and those structural changes could include statehood for DC and Puerto Rico. It could include abolishing the electoral college, it could include packing the supreme court. You hear a lot of these big ideas, kind of lumped together in terms of changes that people argue would make the country more democratic, but, of course, would also help Democrats pass their agenda on the federal level. How much of a role does that play in considerations? Now of making estate doesn't pay any consideration Dale. We'll. Ultimately play a consideration. Let's take the last two states to into the union. Alaska Hawaii, they have flipped easily flipped being democrat and Republican the way I the reason I bring that up is essentially the way in which days have gotten to the union has been very partisan usually takes democratic state, Republican state. We're that we're aware of that. And when it comes to actual when we get closer to what you actually going to do going to have to figure out what you do. Meanwhile the way in which the congress of the United States, works, it is one step at a time. Nobody says, okay, I guess I won't go for statehood. Until I find a corollary state things push other things to happen. And maybe by the time we have to stay at hood, it won't be one to one. But first thing we have to do is to establish the foot hole in the people's house. Then you go onto the next. Acknowledgment though, that you may have to admit a fifty second St. along. It is not that it is no such thing, south Utah, south. You're snow such thing tells you traditionally, there has been some political equivalence would have to, to take what we have done, you know, in the last time state was into more than fifty years ago and say, we're going to have to do exactly the same thing is not to ride with history. So we are going to have to deal with the fact that any big city. And yes, the district of Columbia is largely to is going to be largely democratic. How do you cope with that equivalent? Well we'll, we'll call cross that bridge when we get to it. Let me let me yes, that's obviously, an issue the partisanship, but very frequent when Tom Davis was a member of congress from the state of Jinya and was leader in the Republican party Curtis when Norton, and I and Tom Davis worked together on legislation, which would have. Least given at least give an Eleanor Holmes, Norton, a full vote in the Carson tonight'd states, hell by adding an additional Representative from Utah, which they were on the cusp of being eligible for an ultimately got very frankly. Now we're saying to the fact that it was one for one. We didn't get it was a permanent one for temporary one. Right. Because there was no guaranteed having an extra Representative in the next congress after district, you're absolutely correct. And that's one of the reasons I have concluded that statehood is the option because it would be a tragic if we did what we do nail as majority leader back in twenty six twenty seven, I offered to our rules package, the ability of the representatives from territories. And from the district of Columbia to vote in the committee of the whole, and we could do that by legislation and Republicans frankly took us. Court on that. And the court said, no, that was okay. We could do that. So that Eleanor had a vote in the as she said she boats she voted the committee of the hall. But when the Republicans took back control of the house in twenty ten they eliminated that vote, which we thought was a terrible lack of respect and democratic principles being extended to individuals who were representatives in the United States. So the only way you can do it permanently not have a subsequent congress. Yeah, changing. Yeah. Is to have stated. But I must say that temporary. They is no way in was Utah. Whatever laws state, it see you get a seat as you grow. And you couldn't very easily take away DC's of vote. We talked about a house vote, only then so I do not agree. It would have been temporary. I guess the argument is in the next round of apportionment Utah. What thirty seven bright Utah would have got. But it would have throwing though, I think support it was one for one. So in that case, even then we couldn't get it done. No. Wait a minute. But the reason wasn't one for one. The reason was the gun Bill, somebody attached a gun Bill. We got it through the house. We got it through the Senate both houses voted to give DC a seat. But the National Rifle Association encourage somebody to attach what we call a rider, that would have eliminated all of the districts gun. Safety laws.
