Kentucky AG Warns to Not Let "Celebrities, Influencers and Activists" in Wake of Breonna Taylor Decision "Capture Our Emotions"
"Here, Kentucky's Attorney General. Daniel. Cameron. Today. According to Kentucky Law. The use of force by mattingly in Cosgrove was justified to protect themselves. This. Justification bars us from pursuing criminal charges. In Miss Brianna Taylor's death justice is not often easy. Does Not fit the mold of public opinion, and it does not conform to shifting standards. Now is the Reverend Al Sharpton. The host of MSNBC's politics. Nation. He's author of the New Book Rise up confronting a country at the crossroads which will be available Tuesday Reverend Sharpton, your reaction to what the attorney general had to say and what's unfolded tonight in Louisville. Out My reaction is that certainly it is not surprising, but it is still allowing to see that a grand jury and grand jury usually a totally framed by what the prosecutor plus before because that's the only lawyer in the role to come back and say that we will charge and also for all the violence that he did cause and the cause for those. Surrounding an area on apartment that we kill someone, but we will not charge him with killing. Someone shows an outrageous an unbelievable kind of justification for doing nothing around the death of Brianna Taylor. Brianna Taylor was not even mentioned in the indictment if anyone wants to know why we are saying black lives should matter they acrylic saying Louisville. The day did not math. That attorney general to even attack those of us that supported the family at the family's request saying that the celebrities and influence activists on that wealth from end to Kentucky or should not there to give their views when we're welcome there to watch horses run around the track for the Louisville Dirt Louisville Kentucky Derby. But we're not welcomed to stand up for the life of value and worth of a black woman who's only actions that night issue to better in our own home committing no crime involved with no criminal activity. That's why we continue to. That's why we should vote in. We should use the fact that you can vote in November even in Kentucky even though we couldn't vote the grand jury we ought, to sin, Mitch McConnell into retirement as a deposit on the justice we want for the retailers of. I want to let the audience here what you were just referring to the Kentucky Attorney General who is a Republican talked today about activists from out of state who don't live in Kentucky. As if they have no right to talk about this, let's listen to that. There will be celebrities, influencers and activists who having lived in Kentucky. We tried to tell us how to feel suggesting they understand the facts of this case that they know our community and the Commonwealth better than we do. But they don't. Let's not give into their attempts to influence our thinking or capture our emotions. It sounds like he was talking about you. Talking about me and many others than many that up right there on the ground. From out of state but let me remind people that all of the activities of Leonidas Attorney Ben crump was at the invitation of the Family WanNa. Justice. And if you know it's an old playbook calling people outside Agitators Monitor King Junior and John Lewis Super Far greater than us will call that that will not in any way stopped mood that's gone on all over this country and the way to deal with this, we must try to change the laws and one way to do that is to change the lawmakers. We must turn our pain in the power in the rubble must continue to non-binding march to keep these. Alive.

The right thing did happen on the civil case the city settled with the family for twelve million dollars and you know that settlement never would have happened without you and others bringing national attention to this case. Well absolutely, and why would you settle for that record amount of money if there was no wrong had been done and one of the reasons that we marched by the tens of thousands in Washington just three weeks ago and details mother spoken that much is because we clearly need is George Floyd policing injustice act passed by the Senate, passed by the House that would also make will officers if they commit a crime are subject of of the lawsuits and pretzels have to deal with it taxpayers paying forward individual offices do and are not held accountable for we need to change the laws by changing the lawmakers.

So with watching he's prior races and being the last one and go into the I I was back to not. On the other hand I knew he was going to be quick. you know to to get too close to the lead or BMW before we get, we get to the to the turn. So you know I didn't wear so much and I think even if you the way broke, I kinda wane gradually you know going into the lead before we get to the first time. Were you surprised that no one took advantage of the lackluster break and that you were able to clear by the time you've got that I I. Well I. If we look back at the race really there was only one. One speed horse in and teeth the law and I knew he was not wanna go to delete or you know that's not the way they they actually wanted them to you know and listened to Berkeley and and and prior to that you know the just like to suck somebody and so on. And other words Park elope is I thought he probably go to the lead and and I was willing to let him go if you wanted to do obviously when we pass it pass the wire for the first time in and see him and he wasn't going to delete it. So that was my turn you know to. Okay. Let me go ahead and do what Mars you want to do.

You know talking about we planning with we were just rubies. Have dinner like three, nine, five bike and we keep talking about it. Then it's like you'll make sure you haven't left hand to you know get attention and if you look back from the house cold to the Derby, Mike, Never hit him though Mike he just GonNa kick. Showing the weapon and kind of top him this time you know I got the. Price Him and he responded right away i. that was the difference dry. They're actually afterwards Bob said to me if he makes had hidden his left handed in this house. You would never be on him on the Derby because I don't think he would have got off of them. You know what I mean, and that's why they thought. It was that he might not want to go the distance and. He's a little quirky so he kinda gets distracted very very, very easily and he looked he looked like he was GonNa win easy and and the has over. So it kind of you know the other horses going back to him so. If he had, he had a ham handed I think he would have gone on and You would have been in these stories. So I'm glad he did.

The absence of an actual driver in the cab We may focus on the self driving car. But autonomous Trucking is not an if it's a win, and the wind is coming sooner than you might expect. As we first reported in March, companies have been quietly testing their prototypes on public roads. Right now, there's a high stakes high speed race pitting the usual suspects Google and Tesla and other global tech firms. Against small, startup smelling opportunity. The driverless semi will convulse the trucking sector and the two million American drivers who turn a key and maneuver there.

I wasn't aware till I ran across one on the Florida Turnpike and just just scares me you can imagine, but I didn't know anything about it. No one's talking about everybody. Never never. I didn't know it comes so far. And I'm thinking, wow. It's here. He's right. The autonomous truck revolution is here. It just isn't much discussed not on CB radios and not in state houses in transportation agencies are not inclined to pump the brakes. From Florida.

"This one for the win improbable. We're going to look for another horse. That I think is a real strong winter. Combatant really. It's the number one horse in terms of morning. Line odds for number one horse drawn four to one low. It's not like Your Dad's great great combatant love it? Oh combat and you gotTa love it right. You'll have to hammer down. Maybe don't bet an exotic without having hours in it police. Salt yourself exactly. Why don't you just lump in a lump in combat and into your exotic? They're exactly and I'M GONNA go. I'm going to shift right for my long shot here. Twenty two one sky promise In terms of the mount here Mojica that's Mojica or Oliver. Mohegan came his first name starts with the no drawn a blank here but drawn some pretty crazy odds twenty. Two one strong horse racing. The hundreds and number of times can be skype offset. Yup Go ahead yeah. It's past five races really strong past five races Hard to compare against all the other horses here right. You've got Mister Frasier and the force lot you've got. What is it trophy? Mr Freeze a legend by the way. Go ahead mister. Freeze a legend. There's just tons of legends in this race so it was tough to look for. Just one tacitus right next to it number one but yeah. I'm going to go for sky. Promise twenty two one is. Is The horse that I'm going to chase some some really strong odds on? Yeah just a quick interruption. Before I go with my metric relevant metric for raise twelve the last race oaklawn park race. Seven on Friday. Live that we just listened to We did hit that Trifecta by the way what we did to the eleven men in the can paid eleven eighty two win just looked at it bobbing a nineteen forty on the dollar exact and a two old six thirty and fifty cent tribe that we had a prospect fever in their prospector. Fever cage as nobility the favorite got second to put it all together and that's just a huge hit if you're not betting with the prophets then. I don't know what you're doing wasting your time and we'll we'll probably get one more. I don't know maybe a race eight goes off over. Still doing the podcast. Most likely not but Race twelve. Let's put it let's recap it real quick and we'll move along a race twelve strong race just tons of beautiful horses in this race but our top horse in terms of being able to to place a wind bet improbable at the fourteenth hole. Eight one odds morning line. Combat to combat in the seven hours was second right combatant seven second and then sky promised twenty to one longshot improbable. Get scratched throw in Tacitus. Love that Horse Arrigo raise twelve. We have a relevant metric as always Mr Freeze welcome back. It's been a while freeze. Its been three or four podcast ago. We introduced you to them. Inspired a disgusting Jeffrey Dahmer Rant. From I don't know like I said four or five podcast ago. Guy Likes to cut off heads of human beings and put them in his freezer. Hence MR freeze. Who's mind doesn't just go to Dahmer? When you think of a name like Mister Freeze Joey Talamo on the Mount Anytime. Talamo jumps in the irons. I like a horse. This is six to one morning line. Animal got a good shot. Lobby MR freeze baby as going to say when when I hear you say Mr Freeze. I think of Arnold Schwarzenegger playing Mr Freeze and Batman movie. I don't know one of the worst Batman movies ever. I don't even remember. Maybe I don't do the Dushi she What does that Comic Book Stuff? I don't I just don't get into it at all. It's not my thing I haven't lately but I still have that image of him. Playing MR freeze. Schwarzenegger did something after Predator. Whatever it was I didn't even notice Guvener Guvener. He's keeping busy. Yeah Yeah Hopefully. He goes away for good you all right. We're GONNA move along. Here's the big we're GONNA move along to the big one. This is the one not to take anything away from race. Eleven because the dual Arkansas Derby again what Oakland was whoever map pissing out masterpiece job. Masterful job of managing the virus situation awesome because now we have race eleven. Which was the first Arkansas Derby? What Division One Division? Two was raised thirteen. And it's even stronger field outside of Charlotte. I think would probably be the favourite neither of these. But he's got there's one horse it I would put neck and neck with Charlatan and he's in this race thirteen. We're going to go ahead formula at. I'm pretty sure I'm going to guess that you have on top because I can't imagine that you have anybody else. Yes I got two horses on top. I'll go in order of which I think that they are actually going to finish. But they are my top two horses in this race so the number one also the number one in terms of the morning line odds doll. But I I if I'm looking at the formulas they are split between this horse and the next Horse Right. So it's so.

"Finished. Second finished first so you got imagine that this horse is going to be able to to mix it up here in the tenth race. Who's on the Mount? You'll Rosario big surprise their profits jumping on a USO. Rosario mounted horse clearly. This is a big Rosario opportunity for us. If he has a big day. Tomorrow you can count on US having a big day for sure for sure you want to know where you can get some value We're going eight to one so it's a little bit lower than what I would normally pick here but Spanish kingdom. I do like at eight to one. Spanish kingdom in terms of Adnan medium distance rating. It finishes in the Third Third Slot here in the race the first two. Ginobili and rushy. So it's in good company. Marg are on the Mount Martine Garcia and the mount. Strong Horse surprised. It's only getting eight to one odds here. It's last race was a ninety seven so it had a really strong last race especially in terms of ranking according to the The reading on this race so I think Spanish kingdom eight to one hoping that one doesn't get up. I have a feeling it will but as a right now I'm saying that's our value play right yet that that raises. That's a that's a good one and I think there's there's big big opportunity for who comes off that one I couldn't I couldn't narrow it down for the metric I got a couple of mention Number two Ginobili Luckily for the horrors that doesn't have the same male pattern baldness the man who had the spurs there for those last few years really tough. Look now the embarrassing Probably should have went with a buzz cut but he hung on. He tried to do that. Trump comb over thing not a good look for them already.

We have way too much to cover race number six oaklawn Saturday. You guys can hear it in the background. I've been route around in my fridge for a fresh beer. So that's part of the sound effects here. You're going to get some live broadcast of our failure in race six or whatever that was on Friday. You'RE GONNA get re seven even raising. Yeah so very six tomorrow the fourteen horse here divine armor. Hopefully the fourteen horse can run. Ironically it's it's the favourite or at least at sharing its favourite with the four horse. I'm I'm really digging. This is our number one to To win the race and yeah I'm going to the fours well in terms of If I'm going to pick another horse. That has a good chance to win. I'm holding onto some shock here for sure. Friars Roast Fresh Rhode Rhode good-looking. That's a good tone in that beer. What does that thing This this is untitled art with more brewing Jesus. Snobbery IT'S JUICY. I Ta if you've ever walked into a grocery store and they got that little corner for the beer. Snobs a lot of them do nowadays the the craft beer snobs and I'll dabble in that. I like some of it. This is the one that has like the random paint like thirty different colors of paint. Brush strokes over looking like fake art and that thing is I'll tell you what though it's too hazy. Ip a nice piece looks good hops over the CAN. It's nice looking tone in the beer anyway. Where we at? It's nice. It's nice. Riders rode the four. Yes a fourteen and four They're both the morning line favorites as of right now. I definitely favor the fourteen more than I do. The actor Rosarito and in Pratt man. Yeah two of my guys so I get it. You could lean on those guys right those guys. That is a gamble. You're looking at Two of the best in the business absolutely you just look at the wind percentages and the wind play show percentages. And you know that you can follow them and you'll get yourself in the money pretty quickly now. A long shot six horse what country. What was that thing? What was that thing? Yok Perfect strangers. Wow I just pulled. That was that the name of the show. I think that's Yakup schmear or same thing. Belsky wasn't the same guy rushing guy and then whatever. The other thing was doesn't matter but yeah what country Eastern European bloc country right. Yeah complete racism without being racist. Yeah because national whatever terrible terrible taste. They wouldn't get away with it nowadays but you know growing up so schmeer. Andre is in the six whole going up at ten and one previous. Two races are in the eighties. This is a one hundred and three hundred race but the competition that you look at across the board. I don't see it as being extremely strong. I think there's a lot of opportunity here if you're not friars road or divine armor so what a country I think. That's a horse that sneaks in plus what naming a podcast in the last twenty. Five years is named Yakov smirnoff in their thing. Nobody nobody. I only know that because I was watching a comedy show from one hundred years ago with Sam Kennison and that and the guy was like one of the openers parable by the way not at all not for neo we got relevant was a relevant metric. I have a number eleven absolute unit. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA Hearken Back Clear Lamma Baseball Sloppy speaking of pictures from the last thing. Kershaw we're going to go back to pictures again. The Big Unit Absolute Unit reminds me the big unit Randy Johnson. The worst human being. That's ever lived. Most pilots shit mullet hanging off his neck looking ridiculous. Always looked like you needed a shower. Just a terrible chew in his bottom lip. Terrible person lethal left. You guys late. Seven feet. Tall weighed forty. Pounds is still could throw the ball one hundred ten miles an hour. Whatever you need but my thing with him is innocent. People are dying of the co- virus. Yeah all over. The world in a Johnson is still living. And that's that just seems unfair to me seriously. Think about it. Think about it big unit as a terrible person such as life a gambling fourteen races to cover. We're not gonNA spend a whole lot of time on the big unit but Race Seven. We're going to spend some time on. What do we like their race? Seven one more thing about big unit. There's also that video of him destroying that bird. Oh yeah that's that's a legend. The spring training. Fastball with Burgess. Hey POPs POPs off a ninety nine mile an hour heater in a seagull Segal Seagull. Times it off just on of that. Seagull just makes a bad move at the wrong time and explodes explode explodes from the Randy Johnson fastball which just adds to the to the character of that loser piece of Shit what was he on the Mariners's Oh career to that. Helped him by the way ballpark history. That game you went to the Yankees for a little while toilet glory years were the mariners. Right yeah planning the biggest park in American history and that guy was dominant. But I just want to throw out that. He was in the biggest park in America just to try to take something away from him because he was such a Dick but Started with the Expos. There you go raise those damn Canadian. Some movies seven not a huge fan array seven. Let me tell you why. These Violence Sixteenth. Go ahead mile yet. My own sixteenth. The top two horses here are drawing horrible. Odds on your one dollar bet or two dollar bad at one dollars. You're getting a dollar forty back if you bet on. Gammon the eight horse which is one of my top two as well as Smarty Garcia on the Mount Speech speech did I get that right. Ask half lawyers good. It's called speech at ten horse. And it's drawing two to one odds right now. These two are the absolute favorites. If you look at their records you look at what they've done. Gaming only really one race to speak of speech has three but was touched one hundred rating and two of those so by far those of your favorites right just to rightly so rightly so but as a gambler. You'RE GONNA WANNA ask the question. How do I get paid on this race? How do I actually get an edge here? Good so the horse. I'm picking that I think gives you. That edge is roadrunners honor the Five horse-drawn twenty two one on. Its last race not spectacular. But it's got a couple of pretty good races previous to that. It's been in some pretty fast paced races. I the only one that really compares to Gammon and speech Again it plays out well with Pinkie Pie. I've got a couple of formulas that are rated as a value. Play twenty two one. So that's that's that's a good indicator hidden aboard. I mean let's let's be real things not gonNA win. Maybe it will. Maybe it has. Its Day does win but in terms of being what's the morning line on them. Twenty twenty yeah. Something's got to squeak in here right. There's there's a couple of horses with extremely low penny pain odds here. Well there's such a big draw out of the top two that somebody's salary and then the top two could burn each other up and yeah somebody can snap in there. I don't I don't hate this. I don't think this option. Yeah exactly I. In six races finished third twice finished I once so the sources has finished in the money in half of its races. So I mean there's a there's a good chance at squeaks in here. So that's the one I'm going to go with all right Relevant metric for ray seven The six Horse Seahawk Lisa. And we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA jump right back into sports but this time I'm GonNa go with the football reference And I'm actually proud of the country in the world for this matter I think everybody's finally recognizing that Russell Wilson speaking of the seahawks Russell Wilson has proven to be just a solid gay manager. Best as a quarterback. Right 'cause remember rewind what five seven years ago whenever he's a rookie. Second Year Third Year player. Got that Super Bowl. Did a great job as nothing. Really personal on him. No disrespect goodguys. Seems like a decent enough guy all yours make up and looks annoying as shit on his and he can't stay off social media for one minute but he's a total bro. Good good player but people were putting him on the cross with Jesus for a while and I Dunno it's good to see you know. After a few years just being average people have have backed off of that thing and I think now You know now with Mahomes you see what greatness really looks like an and Brady for the last hundred years and I don't. I didn't like Russell Wilson getting compared to some of those guys and it was sick. So it's good to see that he is now nail down with Detroit guy like a Mattie Stafford type where you're you're probably a little better than average but not great is our Russell Russell's not great. He's getting paid like he's great. Yeah because he got that super once you get a ring dude in the NFL or most sports for that matter if you bring your order back. Yeah you're you're on. What do you call it? You can't you'll never exactly thank you you're made made and I'll I'll tell you a quick story. One Minute Story We got time for the Super Bowl. Detroit what year was it. I'm just going to throw out there. Two thousand five. I have no idea. Jerome Bettis Super Bowl. The Rothlisberger some somewhere in there okay. You know why ran into there literally stood next to the Bar Adam and I stood there and I was like Holy Shit there. He is Mark Rippin of the redskins. Remember this Guy. Been Super Bowl winners. Are Bowl winner. Mark Rippin all right. That guy had like two years where he was relevant. Yeah granted it was a big two years in one year was legendary your they won but that dude is forever alleged because of one year. Whatever and that's Russell Wilson. The big scheme of things will turn out to be Mark Rippin twenty years from now he's GonNa be walking around the super bowl at sixty five years old and there'll be a few people know who he is next race eight. Let's move race. Four talking about Margaret in Russell Wilson. Jesus Christ before we get to race eight though but let's let's let's stay on the NFL just a Tad. Tom Brady at the age of eighty in Rob Gronkowski with his forty seven concussions. How's that going to work in Tampa Bay? You take the over or under on their win number What's I what they finished last year? The bucks were Gosh. You're asking me to Google. Probably I'M GONNA guess five or six winds maybe average below average finished a little bit higher but who is a genus Winston Justice James with the shameless teens? Not The team's not that terrible even without Brady Gronk. They had seven wins last year. No sorry what the hell does this mean. One SEC ONE SEC. It's not that's not that difficult of a number for you. To pull seven wins seventy nine last year and that was famous. Who's terrible actually a lot of talent? But he turns the ball over more than he has not sure he isn't colorblind. Let's just put it that way. They do have all world receivers in that dump Mike Evans. Right Brady can still play. I don't know if he can play at that. Level for Sixteen Games. Gronk to me is just a Jersey shore drinker now. I'm not sure what to think rock. They they set his touchdowns this year at five and a half and I'd go over a man's betting on that.

And it's a big one night just because it's twenty one but because this the weekend everybody's waiting for that first weekend in. May only it's not the derby expect it to be right? We expected this to be the Kentucky Derby. We're expecting this to be a big podcast. And it's still a big podcast. Thank you to the people at Oaklawn for putting together an enormous program for the Arkansas Derby this weekend saving the weekend getting some amazing horses to run a couple races for us and these are the racists. We're going to talk about. So yeah I'm I'm the formula and I'm joined by empire maker. How's it going on your end going? Good Man I'm I'm Just wanted to give a shout out to the cove virus for just destroying the first half of the year for everybody. Thanks thanks buddy. Besides all that. We're actually getting back to work next week Things are starting to normalize slowly hopefully because little bit afraid of some resets on death tolls going back but other than that We're GONNA stay on a positive note and talk about some horse racing I wanted to mention to just a massive week at will rogers. We played three slates there. This week and slade all of them. I think we had fifty percent wire greater on all three of them. Yeah and we've we've kind of figured out a strategy on will rogers. It's been paying out and I think a lot of people been following us on that too. Yeah I've gotten a ton of good feedback and you know people people asking for other picks from different tracks based on the success. We've had their gets. It's been a great week. Probably the best week of twenty twenty to be honest with you. Yesterday we played oaklawn not not terrible but not good We were negative but again it wasn't something's didn't yeah it. Was You know we had some? We had some spots where we looked pretty good in some spots that we missed so by the way were disorder recording us on Friday afternoon to four thirty PM m eastern time right now so While we're broadcasting this thing well we're recording. You're gonNA hear probably spouts from me because we're playing along on the Friday slate today. I think we're going to raise six is coming up next in about ten or fifteen minutes so if you hear some random cursing and screaming. I may even put the audio of the race on to To live give feedback on how we're doing so anyway Let's jump into Oakland for Saturday because there's fourteen races in their full fields and it's going to be an awesome day tomorrow. What did we got going on here? We are looking forward to oaklawn tomorrow. We are going through one through fourteen. But WE'RE GONNA skip to. We didn't have enough data on that race to make a competent pick and for these picks in the past. I've given you what were are one. Two three in terms of an exact try box or an exact a three horsebox We're changing it up a little bit. We're giving you our top two favorites to win and then we're also going to throw in what we consider to be a long shot so I think at the most or at the least are long. Shot to sorry are long shot to finish in the money. I think at the least. We've got maybe an eight to one horse squeezed in there but most of these are Morning Line odds of ten or more so basically a value played up to bounce into your exotic exact to try to pick three and four hours to cover the coverage basically. Yeah exactly something that we think could show could place and provide a pretty good value and and you know in these huge races. This is what we've noticed. I'm sure other people notices while there's always a that squeaks into the money when you've got twelve horses run in like that that you know it wasn't in your top three may not have been in your top four wasn't in your top five so we're trying to find any of those value. Plays out there that we think could be the horse that as a ten to one morning line. Odds maybe even a twenty to one squeaks into that that money spot and Gives you a nice little fat payouts? Are we playing this ten to one or greater or is there? Is there any Racist were all note when it's when it's not tend to wonder greater. I'll play out the odds for you. You can hear you can tell how well prepared in precise we've been on the planning here. We have obviously been talking to each other about this right yet right. Yep and we're just trying to pull off this podcast we know everybody's been anxious for picks on the Arkansas Derby Dual Arkansas derbys which is obviously the highlight tomorrow and and still pay attention to make the best picks. We can Day To day yesterday today at Oakland and and Sunday for that matter so this is probably the the biggest week. We've had racing and twenty twenty cents March seventh when we had three majors. Yeah going at it before the before the frigging Kobe. Yeah we thought that was setting up the the Derby perhaps in setting up the for the Derby but all. That's changed but this is this. Is this the dual? Arkansas derbys is about as cool as we could hope for right now. So yeah it's awesome and the fact that the fact that they split up Dolon Charlotte and into two different races. Yeah instead of putting them head to head it. Only builds up the drama even more for the Derby and maybe I'm an idiot for not knowing that process that they went through to split those but I'm glad I'm glad they're split up because I think it allows for the drama to unfold all year better this way although I think that division to believe Nidal's division is is a much tougher division. I would say so I. I agree with that wholeheartedly. There's there's some horses that I did not put in my top three. That shocked even me. So yeah and without further ado race one. We got a six Furlong Race. Six six and a half for a long time member which it is. Let's start going are are. It's a six okay so our number one horse here timely tradition. You'll Rosario on that horse. Been extremely strong All year been extremely strong at Oaklawn all year. And that's the The morning line odds top horse as well. We've got timely tradition in there. I'm digging deep for my number two horse. My second horse as a really good chance to win is I think it's the eleven horse jackets or Jacquat died yesterday. Pronounce it Jay. Acc I'll say Zhukov. Because it sounds awesome more sophisticated ways. Let's go with it absolutely so it's it's second to last race puts it probably one of the top horses in this race Its last race was a bit of a letdown in in terms of matching up with a rating on this race. But if you remove that and you start to look down it's it's done really well Flavian Pratt on top of the horse. Not Hurting you there now. Fly does a beast man. Yeah for sure at eight to one. That's an extremely good value. And I'm not even at my value play yet when I get to my value plates the number eight Lexington Grace from Ireland. Twenty two one morning line odds it ran to ninety S in its past couple of races really strong horse had a little bit of a dip down in its third and fourth previous races. But even before that it's been running really strong And also it's Yeah. It's A it's a Horse. That's finished in the money several times. A lot of thirds a couple seconds. So I see no problem at twenty one in place in some sort of wager on Lexington gray so I got one eleven and eight. It's my two top favorites to win. And then a nice long shot in there as well. And that segues into the eight horse for the relevant metric for race one Lexington Grace Irish horse just another just another reminder how thanks again. Cova virus for F and up Saint Patrick's Day along the way Speaking to Irish Horse Saint Patrick's Day destroyed. My birthday destroyed. My keeneland party with my friends Kentucky Derby the triple crown and so much more just one more f you to it before we move onto to race to which we're actually GONNA skip Race to again not enough data to to put together a realistic odds. The you know any any crunching the numbers that we could feel good about giving. Yeah so we're going to skip to therese three Go ahead formula what we have for three right virus. Don't care virus. Don't care knowing at seven to two odds we've got the two-horse Captain Don. This is a another six furlong.

"I need the right decision at the end of the day is I mean obviously could've moved to June but we honestly don't know what would what what it all means at this point so hopefully hopefully horses stay healthy people stay healthy cleaner be that. That's really the point that I'll echo that as well that you know alternately. I don't love that had happened. But it's the right decision to to give the the best of pro prospects of being of Kentucky Derby because. I'm sure that that is something that no one wants to have is a Kentucky Derby a year without a Kentucky Derby the longest running continuous sporting event in the United States. That that's not something that I think anyone would like to see lost. I do also want to mention. I forgot to mention this There will be no cylinder in there will be no April. Keeneland needs so. That's very disappointing. I Know Eric specifically disappointed from that. He was going to go out to Keeneland for for us and do do some stuff. There's unfortunately that's not gonNA happen But there but as I mentioned their tracks are still going on the fairgrounds to said they're going to finish out their meat Gulfstream GOLF SHIRT GOING TO RACY STILL MARYLAND. Nairas keeping going so while there are some tracks that are not having having racing anymore The vast majority of them are still going to keep going on Oakland did say they might move the Arkansas Derby. But they're still they're still going to continue so there's a lot of tracks it will still keep on on so that that's obviously good news Speaking of Fairgrounds ARE. There are some notable six. We gotta get to but first. Let's look back at the stuff that happened. The past weekend in one specific thing that I know Eric and I were really really excited about was the rebel stakes weekend featuring the comebacker the of what might end up being Bob Baffert best three-year-old. I know you've got a loaded barn right now but that run by. Nidal in the rebel stakes was there. Were not enough words. That could could describe how very how awesome performance out was set. I don't like to throw the awesome word around very much but that was that was something else. Adult had to deal with tall very fast paced. He got pressed early and he had every excuse. He had every reason not to win that race and he held on to win that race and he may. He made me believe that I believe in him. Because I was not a person that was very hot interested. I was very hot. Wasn't very high doll. But after that Nidal looks like a sure thing Derby contender going into that with the Kentucky Derby being in September Nidal.

"All right here we go. We're back episode number fifty two amid a ton of chaos going on in the racing industry. I don't think I e to to mention all the stuff that's going on going on in the world obviously with the cove nineteen outbreaks and all that We knew it was going to get to horse racing at some point and unfortunately I did take away the Kentucky Derby. If you've heard the Kentucky Derby has been postponed from May the first Saturday in. May All the way to September. The first time in seventy five years. I think it is seventy five or seventy six years That the Kentucky Derby will not be held on the first Saturday in May so obviously. That's unique circumstances. I you know I was talking to Erik a little bit before this in you know regardless of what we think of the decision. It's a moot point. I think both of us would agree and I'm sure there's a lot of other people who will echo this sentiment. It seems like that the reason the Kentucky Derby was pushed back to September was to allow the most opportunity to have spectators in this. And I understand that the desire of Churchill to be able to have spectators at the Kentucky Derby but I felt like that me and several other people And I'm sure Eric and I are not the only other an the other people that have weighed in with this with me on. This privately are not the only people who share that sentiment of you know that this is going to have a bit of a detriment on not just not not just the Kentucky Derby itself but with you know it's going to screw up a lot of things with the horsemen and they're racing schedule. It's also going to mess up other tracks. 'cause attracts are going to have to plan their races around. Having the Kentucky Derby tracks thought they could have races at some point are now going to have to figure out a whether there'll be a have those and if they do have them when they'll be pushed at one specific example I can think of is the Pennsylvania Derby which falls on either the third of the fourth weekend of September. I believe it it. It's Around the third week week of September so but a race like that grade one race for three year olds at is. Was you previously the only grade one race for three year olds in the month of September? Now the Kentucky Derby and subsequently the preakness have been moves to September. So parks is attractive. Can Ask himself whether or not they WANNA have that race and if so when they're going to have it and that's obviously one specific example but There's multiple multiple other tracks that are going to have to plan their racing seasons now around the prospect of not having horses that they could have assumed they would have gotten after the Kentucky Derby..

"This is the Tabet. Horseracing horseracing podcast. Today we talk with grandma. Grunge about Saturday's Louisiana Derby. Now here's your host. Ted Derosa show goes on in horse racing not in front of many live people though some will be in the stands when the Louisiana Derby is conducted on Saturday at fairgrounds and one of those lucky enough to be in attendance. I at the thrill of being one of few. The the rebel grant Legrand's from fairgrounds will have a similar thrill is he and his peers. Gets a witness the Louisiana Derby two hundred points on the road to the Kentucky Derby and that road is extended now until September fifth regardless. This is a win. I'm sure many of the trainers and horseman wanting to grab it's the million dollar twin spires Louisiana Derby grant welcome to the horse racing. Podcast thanks. I appreciate Appreciate you having me and like you said. I'm going to be one of the lucky ones in this unfortunate time and Not only racing but in any sporting events I'M GONNA be one of the lucky ones that get to see the first one hundred point. Prep race I'm looking forward to it. Louisiana Derby is always The highlight of my year. And it's It's not only fund race to watch and see how these horses perform the rest of the year. But it's also Seems to always turn out to be a really good race. Bit No question about it with Sixteen entered fourteen will go assuming only to scratch is certainly a good bending events this year as well plus the added is the race will be NBC. Sports So excited to get that pickup Trying to make lemonade out of Lemons. Obviously don't love the circumstances but The they are what they are. And is someone I'M NOT GONNA lie grant You Know Surreal Eerie. All those adjectives being at a race track with big time racing fans. But certainly something. I'm GonNa be telling my grandkids about what next what an experience and you've had a few days a racing without fans but I'd imagine what they're actually being big steak Saturday. It's GonNa feel more different. Yeah I was That that thought I tried to block that sought out for as long as I could but today kind of doing TV Solo all day today on track. It really It eerie feeling like you said starts to creep in just because you know usually you come into one of those big big weeks and you experience it at Oaklawn but you come into these. Highlights you know the marquee events of the meat and Even though the week of there's the buzz and you know and people are looking forward to it for some reason or another. You have a bigger on track Wednesday crowd. And you know there's there's some lead up to it but today which just me and Three other people in the paddock and I was sitting there doing the pre ratio and almost talking to myself in a sense Other than you know obviously it goes out to simulcast but like you said it's a it's a weird feeling It's certainly strange to be at a track like the fairgrounds. Which usually you know has not only great racing but very fun and Interactive crowd and. It's a little different to be sitting out there In dead silence almost just hearing the horses walked behind you in the paddock. But it is what it is and we're GONNA make lemons out eliminate is that how it goes I think it's lemonade out of Lemons. Although actually lemons lemonade would be more impressive than you think about it. That's why I said it 'cause I was spending you're taking level people. One another SORTA weird wrinkle to this sort of byproduct is You know we're we're prepping for race now. For many of these horses country house actually raised again in the Arkansas Derby last year before Winning the Kentucky Derby but For a lot of these horses this would have been the final star for for the Kentucky Derby Argo imagined. That's in play now With the race being moved to September fifth and Churchill is hinted that they will add some points races. Not sure how many how much they'll be worth it Sarah But you know a a little luster lost from you know a last chance to see these horses before the Derby standpoint And I know as part of your job. In addition to handicapping talking races in the paddock. Do a lot of barn work. A lot of great videos up on twitter and social media would of the the horsemen been saying about this whole situation terms of preparing their horses and thinking about a derby. Now that's six months away. Yeah it's definitely a It's definitely a mixed bag for someone like Brad Cox for example He's you know. Obviously he had Division One winner of the risen star Mister monoploy Who won that race and then came out of the first division of the risen so it with a little bit of an ankle issue so originally right after the risen star when they issue came up. Brad Cox had continued to say that obviously the horses off of the betrayal. But now obviously as you mentioned with the Derby being pushed back a horse like Mr Modern y you know if it is indeed just a minor ankle injury now all of a sudden has has a couple of months to recover and get back into training. And so it's an interesting dynamic. Would you know you have people like that? You have trainers Brad Cox with Mr Manuel. And then you also have you know other guys that Obviously you're aren't thrilled about having the Derby pushed back but at this point it's just opinion because we've I've never seen this before and a lot of these trainers have never seen Something like this before. So everyone kind of has their own opinion whether or not most of it is positive or negative. I'm not sure yet. It seems to be a little bit of mixed emotions Between all of the trainers but for me. I think that you know it is what it is and Business as usual we'll I'd imagine a lot of the sentiment will be distilled in August You know Mr minimally comes back. Game Busters Brattle love it But like His law is awesome through July. And then you know God forbid something doesn't go hundred percent that camp Would definitely a wish for a major be? But you know we're all dealt the same hand so at least it's fair in that regard and finally get to the main event here as we both hinted excellent batting race Really no obvious. Obvious favourite You're GONNA have what fourteen horses There's only the two scratches you do have to. Have you heard anything about how the field might shake out? Do it either of the as have a chance to draw in. I haven't heard a everyone's been playing pretty tight to the chest I haven't heard But to be honest even if these To a draw in. I'm still looking elsewhere. But as far as scratches and to one of the two or both of them drawing. I haven't heard we'll we'll go top to bottom because I don't really see this as any horse not worth talking about some more than others though but it does start down on. The rail and natural at the VIBE is their New Orleans grant but Certainly among my Louisville friends and people I see at Churchill. Downs all the time Hard to find a trainer that would be Not Hard to find a trainer that would be more popular Greg Foley having a Derby Horse and we've seen it to some extent with mark and Brad and Greg seems to be at that level as well. He's local his kids from around here. They're involved as well. A lot of excitement about major fed Down on the rail based on first nets numbers is going to need to find some improvement But he's by go sapper out of a smart strike mayor so no reason to think the distance Can't help him. Yeah and I've I've I interviewed Greg fully after this horse broke his maiden on we back on the first of January and even then Obviously the camp knew that they had something with this horse even on debut but after that easy win Breaking the maiden Greg Foley and his team his kids Travis and they all had high hopes and It seems to becoming to fruition. Here it's good to see that whole crew getting a just an opportunity. I like Travis said at the Louisiana Derby. He said it's nice to be here. It's good to have an opportunity and at least we have a say in this game and to see them win this race that would be A thrill as far as the horse goes like you said that ninety one birds that speech figure last out obviously gonNA need improve on that in but a lot of these horses in here Have something to prove. So at eight to one on the rail. I honestly there's A. There's a bit of a run into that. I turn. I would have liked to see major fed. John Maybe somewhere near the middle of the pack even though there is that long run into the first turn. You still going to have to work out a trip but Who better to work out a trip than Joel? Rosario so major fed on the round at eight to one if you get part of it. I don't see why he couldn't win. This race and Joel was on NATO. The rebel last week and Somehow kept that horse together to repel would seem like a challenge from every horse in that race and they doll was down on the rail as well so the paint and one thing probably should as I mentioned at the top of all this this is a mile and three sixteenths for the first time It does that Affect you do you see that distance is more like amount an acre more classic test for these horses. I think it's more I think it's more of a classic test To be honest with you I think that the mile and three sixteenths We're going to get to see that I mean once you get the distances like these For three year olds It's I mean every yard is going to be a grew. It's a grinding battle. Every extra yard you put onto these racist so To stretch sources out to a mile and three sixteenths I think it was a good move horsemen obviously agree in both the risen star and in this race So it's GonNa be fun to see how it all shakes out going forward. Yeah the Entry Back. Certainly speaking volumes with the full field number two mailman money Connection to Louisiana Derby fans and we'll see the upset winner from last year's Derby on the undercard by my standards. Of course. That's certainly taken a shine to mailman. Money five to one Definitely some buzz off that maiden win at five to two. I actually didn't think that was a terrible race from the ten whole Was Wide had some traffic early. Definitely could see some improvement in store here at a decent price I mean really like to be a broken record or will be by the end of this one of many scenes. It has fat yet. It's tough to not be a broken record in this racist because all of these sources have Tons of upside and so much approve. Mailman money Pretty rough trip in that Rhythm store on the fifteenth of February still finished a nice fourth and talking to Bread Calhoun after the race He mentioned that he he just waiting on this horse to get To mature a little bit he thinks that this horse going forward is going to be a real threat For the three year olds Throughout the summer Whether or not Mailman. Money is ready for this big of a stage yet. It remains to be seen Breakout obviously mentioning that. The trip was pretty rough and had risen store and we can all see it but As far as wind chances. He's definitely a horse that I'm willing to use underneath especially at that morning line..

I'm GonNa give you the answer. Thank you Barbie Netco you WanNa know why yes yes. Okay okay all right. Do you have a question for Barbie. Yes what is it. How many skaters it is per team or on the track at once? Okay so on the track out once Would be ten skaters for blockers and jammer for each team And there's two teams so that would be ten skaters so this questions for both of you. How do you play ruler attorney okay? Who wants to take that question? I can take it if God ben Roller derbies played by like you said ten people on the Track at all times. You have four blockers you have one jammer. Jammer is trying to make their way around to pass the blockers. Every block passes two points You have two periods periods. Each one is an hour long so two hours total in the game and at the end of the two hour period all the points are tallied up and essentially at the end of the game. Has the most points wins. uh-huh Okay Barbie. Are there any other rules we have to now.

That's a great question blockers occurs just kind of like their name block by hitting other blockers and the jammer of the other team to prevent the jammer from getting past them to score points. The jams job is to get through the blockers and every blocker of the other team that she or he passes gets gets. Appoint so the jammer will skate around another lap and then try to get through that pack again and score another set of points for every blocker on the team that they pass and then whoever gets the most points wins a pair of pajamas. I'm not sure that's true pajamas. Come from Oh this one's for both of you have. Do you ever gotten really hurt in Roller Derby and had to sit out. Oh good question. Personally no.

When did did you become aware that that this wasn't just that that would was involved? That flirty had helped covered When did you become aware of all of that? I wasn't completely aware of this situation until it was completely brought to light right about a year and a half ago when everyone started filing suit when everyone was getting interviewed and we had started started talking about what had happened with each other. Does everyone have similar stories of how this happened. Does there seem to be a pattern there for the officers. You're yes A few other plaintiffs that were victims of him. Who I've discussed have told me that? The same things happen to them. He would pressure them for nude pictures and from there escalated and he's facing. He's facing criminal charges now yes deal.

I wasn't really thinking consciously that something's wrong here But you know I thought oh well this would still almost built awkward silence kind of you know just making conversation about things to go along and he asked me a question about something about so now you know. Walk and talk if I need to So I started going off on this subject or whatever and I wasn't making eye contact back with him I was looking at the TV again. It's darker in there So I'm I'm going through the story of whatever I was talking about and and it was almost like situation but I had been before where he took my my hand it over and For lack of better term. He was clouded. We'll put it that way You know it was it was. I don't even know the word to describe that other than under shock So I drift away and you know just kind of made a joke about it like you know Kinda trying to laugh off and and You know ease the tension or whatever but that I had going on I made a joke or something and you know.

"To showcasing stories uncovered by the investigative unit here at Fox today. We're going to begin a multi part series on charges of sex abuse committed by the Police in Louisville Kentucky. A warning that some of the material you're about to listen to maybe disturbing and may not be suitable for minors before we begin our stories. It's important to note that two of the officers serves involved in this case have pleaded guilty to sex abuse charges the civil litigation that brought the scandal to light is still ongoing and Louisville is still trying to heal our reporting is based on court documents and interviews with victims local politicians reporters and attorneys Fox News has reached out to all all parties central to the story some chose not to respond. Now here's more from our reporter. Andrew Kuyper our story begins with the Youth Explores Program in Louisville a mentorship opportunity for teens. WHO ASPIRE to careers in law enforcement? They're explorer chapters across the nation. But some say this Golden Opportunity at Kentucky how dark dark secret and became a nightmare of abuse intimidation and shame at the hands of Louisville Metro. Police officers he would. It was on a regular basis. He would ask ask for nude photos. Ask for me to come over all sorts of things in this first installment. Our series will detail the allegations of abuse by the officers against the youth explorer cadets. We'll hear from lawyers. Local politicians and alleged victims additionally in the final days of our investigation. Five have new explorer lawsuits were unsealed due to the complex nature of those cases were devoting a fourth episode to investing those claims at length. We'll also update you on all the the litigation surrounding the scandal and take a look at how the saga has roiled the Derby cities local politics. It's important to note some of what's discussed in this. PODCAST is graphic if it can nature to start we'll hear from the lawyer who filed the first lawsuits on behalf of the former cadets. And you take a young person who has been sexually assaulted sexually abused intimidated. Who has gone so far to till and other officer And nothing happens David. Yates is a councilman and end attorney. In Louisville in two thousand sixteen he was contacted by someone claiming to have been sexually abused by officers in the explorer program. And I'd hoped that it wasn't as large as it was but it was just a terrible secret. Yates filed the first lawsuit that contained a striking number of allegations allegations including rape destruction of evidence and intimidation by Louisville Metro. Police Department officers. We'll get into the details a little later on but I it's a story about how he learned of the abuses. It started an individual Hit spoken to me and through my law practice. Olive doc contacted Will eventually be a client in Think I filed with NC in March sixteen. NC was a youth explore cadet that filed the first lawsuit against the Louisville Metro Police Department also just to be clear. NC is not his real name due to the graphic and perverse details of the story. His identity has been concealed not long after. NC came forward more cadets disclosed graphic abuse to yates he could either take action or keep it to himself for him. It wasn't much of a choice. They had the data that the the you know. For from their social media sites the text messages and stuff from the individual abusers. I think that the their individual stories all clobbering each other pictures of the Genitalia of the abusers that they had sent them the tipping point that led him to file. Suit was what he calls calls the inaction of police leadership to hold officers accountable for their abuses. Then they're young lady. There was another case that was filed. there was another situation -Tuation in the media covered it that she had reported what was going on Base came to her home and they insured the parents that this officer would never be around. anyone in would be an officer was going to be the chiefs desk. Yates named officers. Brandon would good and Kenneth Bets the alleged primary of users in the scandal. Also named were officers. Curtis flaherty police chief Steve Conrad Mayor Greg Fischer as well as is the boy scouts of America and learning life to parent organizations of the Youth Explorers Program. I made multiple attempts to speak with beds would and their lawyers about the ongoing civil and criminal cases against them. I even ran into one of bets as attorneys in an Elevator in Louisville. Despite all of this they refused to offer comment or make themselves available for interviews additionally multiple attempts to reach the boy scouts of America and learning for life. What unanswered today? No one from either organization has respond to my emails or my calls similarly attempts to speak with flaherty Conrad and Mayor Fisher went unanswered Fisher. Staff Senator previously circulated statement about the abuse allegations saying it's imperative this administration must get to the bottom of these disturbing allegations flirty attorney the settling Did tell me. He expects the accusations of negligence leveled against his client to be dismissed. Upcoming hearing currently flirty is named As defendant in all seven civil suits filed by former explorer cadets. His attorneys said he is innocent and ran a very safe programme the lawsuit alleges that NC was raped by wooden. Bats acts the officers recorded on camera. It also accuses the former officers of tampering with and destroying evidence to cover up the abuse. NC's lawsuit was the catalyst that Sent Louisville Spinning. The allegations made by gates in that lawsuit are led to resignations firings investigations and criminal charges being filed against beds and what the trail a lot of lefty social media to actually send naked pictures of himself back and forth on the harder harder part was to show the cover up But that started at Revlon will gates was a councilman for Lulu. He knew he would face pressure pursuing his own city. So he brought Tad Thomas. On as additional counsel Thomas would eventually become lead attorney on all seven lawsuits after Yates was forced to to step away. And how many victims have come forward in total We've talked we've talked to a number I would say. Gosh I'd need a dozen fifteen really. Yes and these are all these all. Come back to the same officers woods and that's There's essentially yes words bets Shuman I believe is the third third officer Brad. Shuman is accused of misconduct. Unlike bets would he hasn't been charged criminally and remains on desk duty for the Louisville Metro Police Department detail the allegations against human in the fourth episode so it starts out with text messages You know flirting essentially Promising things in return. So you know in these in this particular case my clients were promised things like rat alongs or you know special treatment within the Explorers Program. You know if you do this. I'll let you do this. This sort of thing would pro quo. Thomas said all the victims detailed similar patterns of behavior by the officers. They didn't ambush the teens. But steadily increase the pressure and escalated their actions age. Pretty Grotesque Yes Is there some nonconsensual consensual sexual intercourse. you know you know there's a threesome frankly with two boys To minors take take the case of. CF another plaintiff represented by Thomas. He said he and NC were raped by officer bets when they were just teens. He joined the explorer our program in two thousand and eight at fourteen years old. CF story is previously unheard and his lawsuit was recently unsealed while he discusses abuses says that happened to him and NC together. It's important to note that his lawsuit is separate from NC's CF story details graphic accounts of sexual assault and rape the following audio maybe disturbing to some audiences additionally my voice in the following clips is a little quieter than normal. It's it's a result of the circumstances of our recording and there's no need to adjust your headphones. My father my whole family was always involved in Public Service so he was a captain on fire department He was a police officer and and And a city near us so we were always involved with public services. So you knew you met officers. Bentson would vary early on then. Yeah where they tell me a little bit about how they interact with with the larger group. The officer bats was kind of standoffish. He had his own group of people at he would talk to. He didn't really talk to new recruits officer would was really friendly. Everybody liked him he was really really friendly. I could sit with them and talk about anything thirty four year. Old Kenneth Ryan beds. It's spent fourteen years with the Youth Explorer Program as both Cadet and mentor.

A Longtime Louisville Attorney Ernie and thorn in the side of the Metro Police Department. He's representing Harper in a whistle blower lawsuit. The main inconsistency as I recall it was the mayor said during a two thousand thirteen investigation. What he learned about that he read about or saw in the media and the deputy mayor and the chief both said they had individual meetings with the mayor where he was briefed on the course of that investigation and the deputy mayor and the chief of police said that he was? He was briefed on the investigation or briefed on the allegations as early as two thousand thirteen. That's my recollection. Yes flirty alleged role in the scandal goes beyond negligence. He is accused of tampering with and destroying evidence of sexual misconduct allegedly going so far as to delete explicit photos of an officer from a teenage girls phone in front of her parents when they filed a report. Did major flaherty delete sexually explicit photos photos off of a victim's phone has been had been accused of deleting sexually explicit photos off of a victim's phone yes whose men text I that could imply a violation of state and federal law about destroying evidence. And that's those those are those are felony charges correct yesser this view of the youth explorer scandal paints a picture of negligence and criminal wrongdoing. That's in would or at the centre with flirty acting. In a way that protected and facilitated their abuse Furthermore Chief Conrad allowed bets to resign without facing criminal prosecution despite knowledge of allegations of gross sexual abuse lodged against him as the FBI continues to investigate those seeking justice in Louisville hope. Their questions will be answered in the next installment of the series will explore how widespread teen sex abuse is in the youth explorer scandal across the nation.

"Felt he had to let the people officially in charge work their case just five months after James met with chief. Conrad something happened the turn the Community of Louisville inside out. NC was the first plaintiff to file a civil lawsuit against the officers the allegations within the lawsuit our heroine. NC claimed that he was raped by officers beds and would actually recorded on camera in our first episode we heard from cf another plaintiff who claimed he and NC were raped by officer bets. CF has filed separately and after initial lawsuit. I had about two. We were three and I had a buzz. And that's when he pulled us back into his room started taking are closed off and kind of pushed us onto the bed and from there it lead onto him giving us oral sex and US giving him Oro Sacks and it led him penetrating me and and see eh. NC's allegations of abuse now public. The News ripped through Louisville. You know the media is all over it and people are talking about it. Council members are talking about got it. Police officers are talking about it. Citizens are talking about it. You know I can't go to the grocery store that being stopped by citizens other council members are having the same thing in in in another lawsuit is filed and More of the same have council members calling me saying what are we going to do the lawsuits where the tipping point for James. He met with Mayor Greg Fischer and urged him to contact the F. B. I. to look into the allegations but the mayor's office refused James Request for outside law enforcement instead Fischer decided to hire an outside investigator former. US District Attorney Carry Harvey for one hundred forty thousand dollars. Mayor Fisher said in in a statement that is of the utmost importance to get to the bottom of the youth explores sex-abuse. James took issue with the decision to hire carry harvey. Not What the decision to have an investigation. Gatien the scandal. The private investigator has no ability to arrest. Anybody has no ability to search. Warrants has no ability to do subpoenas all those things that are necessary you to investigate a case and had the tools and resources and assets that you need to do that. James was prophetic as harvey began investigating. The police union prevented handed him from interviewing LAPD officers. Because of a clause in their collective bargaining agreement a heavily redacted version of the report was recently released after months of delays delays in it Harvey found that Louisville Metro. Police made mistakes in handling the allegations of misconduct. The report also found no evidence a cover up by Mayor Fisher and largely cleared chief. Conrad of mishandling the investigation in Tibet's misconduct however the allegations of abuse that were recently recently released. In Harvey's timeline are disturbing metro council. Recently voted to release Harvey's timeline of official knowledge of the abuse which is separate from his original report although the names of the miners redacted local Fox News Affiliate W. D. Rby reported that flirty was fully aware of sexual misconduct allegations made made against pets. They were made as early as two thousand and two when the beleaguered officer was still a Teen Cadet in the Explorer Program flirty submitted a written report of the allegations allegations against bets to a superior yet the department still hired him for years later in two thousand and six as a recruit neither flirty or the department could be reached as for comment regarding the hiring of bets after allegations had been made multiple attempts to reach L. NPD's listed public information. Officer have gone unreturned flurries thirties attorney lease settling or did tell me. He expects the accusations of negligence leveled against his client to be dismissed in an upcoming here. Currently flirty is is named as a defendant in all seven civil suit filed by the former youth explorer cadets. His attorney said he is innocent and ran a very safe programme. The first allegations allegation of sexual misconduct against an LAPD explorer happened in two thousand two the name is redacted but a source close to the investigation tells WDR beat it was was a minor in the explorer program named Kenneth Betts. Betts is now at the center of the Youth Explorer Program Sex Abuse case now charged with several counts of sexual abuse abuse. The fact that we knew there was a problem in two thousand two and that we still did not do anything about it as a police department. The children were molested. It's the most disturbing detail for Metro Council president. David James Documents released Thursday showed that two female explorers came forward in two thousand to to sing. Bets sexually abused them. There is a solid took place and lieutenant clarity. Then tenant clarity later. Became major flirty. was well aware of that situation. Four years later in two thousand six betts joined the department in became involved with the explorer program. He's now accused of salting eight explorers before he resigned in two thousand fourteen. So here we are in two thousand eighteen saying. How did this happen? A knowledge timeline shows that chief Conrad knew about some assaults as early as twenty thirteen and chief. You've Conrad really knew about it. Why did you not stop the program and check on these children to make sure that no further bad things? We're going to take place the same time. Line shows Samir. Fisher wasn't made aware of any allegations until November twenty sixteen. He ended the explorer program in March. Twenty Seventeen Fisher tweeted a statement that says in part heart. I remain committed to ensuring that all questions are answered. That justice is served in that all necessary. Measures are taken to make sure. This never happens again. Harvey's timeline has bets joining the explorer program in Nineteen Ninety nine and would in two thousand and two thousand to two females accused bets of sexual misconduct conduct the allegations against pets. When he was a member of the Louisville Metro Police Department go back to two thousand and seven when Harvey reported that he took an explorer to a local park mark and demanded oral sex? The first allegations harvey found against would date back to two thousand eleven when he said the officer had sex with a seventeen year old and exchanged changed explicit e mails with a sixteen year old. Harvey's timeline and report do well to fill in some of the missing details about the allegations against bets would and flirty clarity. However the findings were questioned by some in city leadership? James said the report was not so thorough in its findings and mayoral candidate and councilwoman. Angela elite took issue with a previously undisclosed professional relationship between Harvey and deputy mayor. Allan Hessen leads said hasn't Harvey worked together. And Former Governor Steve Beshir's administration neither Hessen or harvey could be reached for comment. This report isn't enough for James and others who hoped the FBI investigation Asian. Give a clear picture of who knew what and when so Contacted a friend of mine that is retired from from the FBI and explain what was going on and said I really needed to talk to the agent in charge. And then that took place and so so the next day the FBI said that They would start looking into the case. The FBI confirmed affirmed Fox News that they began investigating. Major Curtis Flaherty the Director of the local explorers program who was also in charge of the unit that looks into criminal misconduct by police police officers. They said their investigation is being done in coordination with Departments Public Integrity Unit which is no longer headed up by flaherty so With an investigation. We're taking place about officers doing inappropriate things with explorers. Then it would have been his officers that would have been sent to do that. Investigation and he would have been in charge of directing how that investigation doc plays well. That's definite conflict of interest. The scandal prompted chief Conrad to suspend the program in November of two thousand sixteen emails obtained by Fox News. Show that flaherty successfully lobbied to have it reopened just a week later for a slate of summer activities including National Explorer Pistol Missile Competition. The regional and national explore competitions were described to me on background by multiple sources as breeding grounds for abuse. Indeed Harvey's report uncovered an alleged incident. Were Bets touched and explorer cadets genitals at a two thousand twelve explore conference in Fort Collins Colorado. It's not clear why flaherty was pushing to keep this particular program open but it did show that he intended to remain with the department for some time Larry's request to keep the program open was rescinded and the local chapter was eventually closed for good in March of two thousand seventeen at this point the FBI was investigating the abuse. In Louisville Louisville's youth explorer chapter many had been interviewed including flaherty a month after the FBI interviewed him flirty retired from his job. The circumstances of which raised questions among those closest to the scandal Clerides.

"Hello I'm Laura Ingle Bill. Welcome back to another episode of Fox News Investigates This is the third installment in our series on teen sex abuse. In the Louisville Metro Police Department in the first episode we heard from two alleged victims of a former Louisville officer who detailed graphic experiences of abuse and rape in the second lawyers politicians detailed an alleged plot to cover up the misconduct. A warning that some of what's discussed in this podcast is graphic in nature and may not be suitable for young audiences. Fox News has reached out to all parties central to the scandal for a comment. Some chose not to respond. And now here's our reporter Andrew Kuyper. Hello I'm Andrew Kuyper. Thanks for joining us in this episode. We're going to hear from an academic and investigative. Let's get a journalist. Both of whom have deeply investigated. Instances of sex abuse in youth explore chapters across the nation in the first episode. We heard from two who alleged victims of a former Louisville officer with detailed graphic experiences of abuse and rape here. Cf a victim who filed a lawsuit against the officers he He said the fridge was full of alcohol. And that's when he started to come onto us and I was extremely nervous. Didn't know what to do who to call. So that's when I started drinking and from there. He took us into his bedroom and some messed up. Things happened in the second episode. We spoke with lawyers and local politicians close to the scandal. They detailed their knowledge of what they say is a cover up by police and city leadership. They helped shed light on the claims of abuse and negligence at the center of this story. Here's attorney David Gates that think that obviously The way the program was run looking back. Now I think th that level negligences. That's the standard of here but to say that they actually they they were part of that cover up. And they're part of that I think that that moves on to people in positions of authority. I think it moves all the way up named flared individually for that reason because he ran the the program. The allegations of abuse made by the victims are striking not only because of the severity of them but also because of the pattern they establish. It appears the officers would groomed groomed scouts beginning with inappropriate text messages and eventually escalating their actions to increasingly more sexual and perverse levels. They seem to have exploited. The innocence inhibition of the teenagers. Unfortunately sexual abuse in the Youth Explores Program isn't unique to Louisville. There have been hundreds of documented cases of officers exploiting their positions as mentors to prey on teen cadets. In some cases officers were prosecuted and convicted and others. They resigned or fired from the force today. We'll hear from a local investigative journalist and unacademic both of whom have written extensively on the abuse within the youth explorers programs across the nation. The first Andrew Wolfson he's a longtime investigative reporter with the Courier Journal and Louisville he compiled a database of sex abuse lawsuits against officers involved in police youth explorer programs across the nation from newspaper articles in court filings. We got a tip that A A an officer had been suspended because some allegations involving in his role as a adviser to the explorer program and We weren't able to write I too much about it. And then finally there was a Sealed lawsuit filed under a pseudonym search for the plaintiff. I think that was NC. I remember correctly and We got a a copy of the lawsuit and then went from there. NC was the first victim to file a civil lawsuit. Food Against Former Louisville officers can his bets and Brandon would the lawsuits made explosive allegations and claimed to officers raped him and also recorded boarded the acts on camera. Neither of the former officers were made available for interviews or comment. NC's Lawsuit Tore Louisville Thunder. It was the first of an eventual seven seven lawsuits filed against members of the Louisville Metro Police Department and city leadership. And that I that I reporting that you did on on NC's lawsuit over the ripple effects. I think people were disturbed that That this involved police and had apparently had gone on for a long time and One turned out that an officer who had been allowed allowed to resign from the department was one of the accused and so I think there was a suspicion of whether it was properly handled When it first came to light Wolfson spearheaded a nationwide investigation into sex abuse in the Youth Explorer Program Program? He found one hundred and sixty two victims in at least twenty eight states over the past forty years. Well I am reading about the explorers of it wasn't hard to come. Upon the fact that there were cases stretching back decades we've found that the the executives in charge of scouting in explorer program specifically did not respond respond in an effective way as these cases emerged Part of the problem was that authority was diffused fused between the the scouting organization and The police departments that actually ran these programs. Some of the details wolfson uncovered were harrowing the youngest victims he came across. We're just thirteen years old. In Oregon he found a case where five officers made a sex tape with two boys and two girls. Another instance in Rhode Island six officers had sex with just one girl in Los Angeles. A former explorer turn officer was sentenced to eleven years in prison for sodomizing teenage boys. In some cases the officers prosecuted and served jail time and others they we're allowed to resign or even remained on the force and we were there any patterns. That you that you came across. I think The one thread was a The victims like all explorer scouts were Kind of enthralled with police and wanted to at least consider instead of pursuing those career so they were kicked. Roy Vulnerable to a authority of officers. This cuts to the heart of the issue. The victims victims were abused by officers in positions of power who exploited the kids desire to enter their profession. This exploitation of ambition destroyed many young lives well I think it's it begins. With Manipulation Police Officers Authority figures and some authors really know how to use that in waste aches specially with a teenager that Samuel Walker professor emeritus at the School of Criminology and criminal justice at the University of Nebraska Omaha. Home home the big cop you know. I'm out there dealing with dangerous situations and so on. Well appeals really. Gets the attention of of of you know some younger people in one thing can lead to another in two thousand and three Walker published a study police sex abuse of teen girls. He found over thirty cases where officers were punished for. Sex Abuse in the youth. Explorer Program got calls from people after the initial report was done people who've been and then victims are their parents and so on and And and we got a sense that there are a lot of. I'm pretty. I'm willing to bet that there are a lot of cases where The parents don't go public and there are undoubtedly a lot of cases where the girls themselves never tell their parents or anybody else. So the the the exact amount of of how often this occurs is simply unknown. I I compare it to an iceberg. The keys we counter the tip of the iceberg but as we know about icebergs you know the most of it is below the water level. This seems to hold with the incidents in Louisville where attorney said there were many more victims than those who filed lawsuits. The ones who haven't come forward or maybe even more embarrassed than Children who are abused by police Because they you know. They looked up to Police and least we're entertaining the idea of becoming one so I don't think it's going to grow to those proportions but we haven't really I mean there's obviously I think what what I wrote that story. I think there's still only two or three cases here service more come to the fore here. Walkers concerned with some of the practices and policies of departments who run explorer programs namely how they conduct ride alongs and social interactions in a number of the cases officers were found to invite cadets into their homes and give them alcohol such is the case with cf who detailed his raped by officer. Kenneth Bets in our first episode in California Walker found a two thousand and two case where an officer pled guilty to multiple sexual misconduct charges for abusing three sixteen year old often during late night. Ride alongs my concern is that not enough is being done to To make.

"Welcome to another episode. assode of Fox News investigates. I'm Laura ingle today. The fourth installment in our series on teen sex abuse allegations in the Louisville Metro Police Department apartment. A warning that some of our material is graphic in nature and may not be suitable for minors are reporting is based off court documents and interviews with individuals individuals close to the scandal. Today eight federal prosecutors have obtained guilty pleas from two officers central to the story and the FBI investigation is ongoing ongoing. Fox News has reached out to all parties central to the story for comment. Some chose not to respond once again. Here's our reporter Andrew Kuyper offer. Thanks Laura today. We're going to focus on five recently. Unsealed lawsuits that have cast the Derby city further into tumult. The newly public lawsuit suit detail allegations against a number of current and former LAPD officers. They unveil a rash of explosive allegations. That some say show a ring ring of negligence and cover up that was established to protect officers at the center of the scandal. You've already heard reports from former cadets like cf who said he was raped at a Louisville Metro police officers home when he was just a teen his story which he shared in the first episode of this series is detailed at length in an unsealed lawsuit. Do He He said the fridge was full of alcohol. And that's when he started to come onto. US and I was extremely nervous. Didn't know what to do call. So that's when I started drinking and from there. He took us into his bedroom. Some messed up things happened. You've also heard from local politicians and lawyers who have been central to the Fray Tad Thomas who represents all seven the plaintiffs in the youth explorer lawsuits talked with us in an earlier episode about the cycle of abuse. He said the officers perpetuated. What would happen is a victim? uh-huh of bets would go to would and say this is what happened so woods would say you know what we need to tell Mr Flare knee and so they would go and report it. The Mr Flaherty when woods during the same thing and then flared he would do nothing about it and and vice versa. A victim of woods as we go to bets and say. Hey this is what happened to me what should I do well. Let's go to flair and flair would not do anything. And here's Council President David James and our second episode. He was one of the first outside of the police department to hear of the shocking allegations. I received some communications from some police officers asking me if I had heard about search warrant conducted by the Police Department on an officers don't and I said no I have not and so when they did that I was told that They found videotape of officer. Bets officer would molesting One one of explorers in so it was common shocked by that and so A couple of weeks at passed passed and I had not seen anything on the Muse about Arrest being made and I thought that was awfully strange. At least eight current and former Louisville Metro police officers have been named in the youth explore lawsuits at the center of the scandal are former officers. Kenneth Bets and Brandon would both bets and would have been charged in federal court. Bets has pleaded guilty to enticement and child porn charges. Prosecutors said he met three of his four victims through the youth explore program in his plea agreement bets and his attorneys agreed to a sentence between ten and fifteen years in prison. The judge in best case said the plea agreement of fifteen years in prison was too lenient. He scheduled to be back in court in August to be resentenced. In January of two thousand nineteen would also plead guilty to a federal attempted enticement charge according to the plea agreement would met the explorer a Camp Kentucky and sexually pursued the eighteen over various social media platforms although prosecutors and woods attorneys agreed to a five year sentence. The judge did not the judge recently gave would a longer sentence sentence than what was agreed to in his plea deal. The former officer will spend seventy months in jail. Also central to the controversy is retired. Major Curtis flaherty clarity who ran both the youth explore program and the Department's Public Integrity Unit which investigates criminal wrongdoing officers. flirty has long been accused of allowing allowing the allegations against bets would and officer. Brad Shuman go under investigated and largely unpunished. We'll dissect Schuman's allegations momentarily flirt. His lawyer lease settling Told Fox News that his client maintains his innocence and is expecting to be dismissed from the civil lawsuits due to the statute of limitations. Thomas said the court will resolve that issue in an upcoming hearing. Shuman is the primary defendant in one of the recently unsealed lawsuits. The plaintiff identified only as in court documents initially accused Shuman of raping coercing and sending in soliciting indecent photographs when she was a minor around two thousand and eleven an an amended complaints. The woman walked back the rape claims instead accusing Shuman of groping her sending inappropriate photographs and attempting to solicit sex from her this recalibration of allegations. According to Schuman's lawyer. Carol Pettit is enough to discredit claims. She said Schuman didn't have a relationship with the team. Although she acknowledged the officer was an explorer advisor at the same time beal was a Cadet Pettit said Schuman maintains his innocence. Thomas the plaintiff's attorney said so the defense has employed a number of strategies to drag the court proceedings out for as long as possible so the next step is really to go before the court and see what what she will let us do next. I assume that we will have rulings on our motions to dismiss In the near future either before are they hearing or soon thereafter that I would think and we'll be asking the court when we go in for the status conference one way or the other for permission to proceed in Discovery Cavalry to you. Start sending out written questions to all the defendants into start taking witnessed at positions. And do you feel like this case has moved quickly. I mean and we're GONNA get an arduous process process right You know th the defendants have a right to use the civil process to defend themselves themselves. In a way that they see fit and that includes motions for this miss and procedural tactics Which is what they've done here And removing the federal the court and Fighting Tooth and nail to keep us from being able to start discovery so unfortunately It moved quite slowly slowly Hoping that this judge will give us the go-ahead to start taking discovery and really Keep the case in the high gear. Some of the allegations that it become public our heroine consider this from one of the five lawsuits filed by its against former officer. Kenneth Betz I I think You know some of them the allegations Gheysens. They had really not been discussed and the and the public around until the judge unsealed. The lawsuits are really One would be the sting operation that was conducted in one of our cases. I wear our client had gone and complained to About one of the officers officers and you know asking for nude photographs and Other sorts of harassment and things like that she reported it to some some of the CO defendants in the suit and they Essentially tried to set up a sting with her Where they invited the officer he was already at another other Catholic Picnic They tried to get him made her behind the on one of the buildings and and what I believe happened at that point is tipped off at this was going on and he you know changed his tone and and didn't show up in K. W. versus pets the lawsuit Thomas mentioned the former officer is accused of stalking and attempting to sexually assaulting on multiple occasions between two thousand eleven seven and two thousand twelve. Thomas said he and his team found no records of a sting operation on officer beds after conducting an open records request with the department he said. The lack of documentation of complaints and investigations helps establish a pattern of negligence by flirty and other officers involved in the explorer program at one point during a statewide explorer conference K. W. said bets approached her while she was sitting on a bench and forced his me between her legs making rough contact with her genitalia. Eliya during the same week on the day of her Sixteenth Birthday K. W. alleges that bet singled her out during a group exercise and humiliated her before making being the other explorers singer. Happy Birthday sometime later in two thousand and Thirteen K. W. alleges that that's trapped her in a stairwell with the intent to sexually assault her. He said it was only when someone else came in that she was able to break his grip on her wrist and fleet. The five recently unsealed lawsuits also established allegations against a number of key players in the explorer program. Chief among them is former officer Julius Schmidt. She's accused in multiple lawsuits of helping to cover over the misconduct. Alleged against officer bets and Shuman essentially the lawsuits say that Schmidt helped perpetuate the abuse by failing to report it and sometimes actively preventing appropriate action from being taken..
