Karol Mason on the Killing of George Floyd and 'the Fear of Black People'
"Do you think that The conversation that the the country is having now as a result of the killing of george floyd and the trial and conviction of derek. Chauvin are we headed in the right direction. Not only in terms of the conversation but the solutions that are being discussed. I'm glad you grounded me in the conversation. We had three years ago. Because my thinking has definitely evolved since then and and I don't know that. I would have equated it until now with with the rethinking based on what happened after george floyd killing last year but i think that that is the right pivotal point for me and some of my thinking and so for me. I think that You know when you said earlier. I was thinking about drug courts. Mental health courts. I don't want any of that right now. I want to take the thinking back to where we need to make investments about what take the whole conversation back to thinking about what is public safety. Look like and and as the deputy city manager in san. Jose said when i was having conversations he said no. Let's call a community safety because then everyone understands. Who owns at the community owns it. It's not anyone's domain. It's all of our responsibility. So so i will say that the george floyd situation caused me really to rethink in reorient for myself. The conversation and i hope for everyone else. Because i think that we've gotten so polarized now about an even that word policing and turning it into a verb The question is how do we have safe communities. How do we have communities where everybody has an opportunity to thrive and succeed. And then you start talking about. And what's the role of policing in that kind of world as opposed to starting with thinking about police and then how do you create around
State Legislators Renew Push For Qualified Immunity
"This week. America breath the heavy sigh of relief. Three consecutive guilty verdicts came down in the murder. Trial of derek chauvin. We shouldn't have to feel surprised. We shouldn't have to feel relieved but the reality is that cops murdering black people in broad daylight and getting away with. It is the norm in american policing this week on wwe af daily. I was joined by my friend. Fill up a tiba goff. Ceo of the center for policing equity. We talked for half an hour about what can be done to radically transform policing including his thoughts on call to define the police which you will hear coming up in a few minutes. If the ten minutes i'll share with you today inform and inspire you do consider supporting af daily on patriot on to hear the full interview and so much more. You can become a patron right now at patriotair dot com slash woke af. But for now. Let's pick up on the asking philip to share his thoughts on ending qualified immunity for police officers. Where are we with qualified immunity right. Where where are we with being able to at least get to some type of level playing ground where you don't have this get out of jail. Free card yeah so unqualified. Unity are states. That are making changes. They're saying they're abolishing it. That's not quite right. What they're doing is they're changing the the standard for it with should be useful on state cases and can be useful on local cases. But we're we're not close from any of the states as examples. The justice for justice policing george floyd act on end in its current irritation would end qualified immunity. And i think that has a shot of making it through the senate so in that case we would be in fact repealing the the president and saying no you cannot use it. This way of qualified immunity might might make a difference in about a quarter of the cases that come forward whether it's charging so even those things that are that are sort of easy villains in this. Fight real villain. Here is the way we use police so anything. Most most cities ninety six percent of what police do has nothing to do with violence. D- do you think we could figure out a way to spend less and get less armed response for that

"derek chauvin" Discussed on KILF Morning New Podcast
"I mean when the president says that it's hard to find a venue where you wouldn't find influence jerry and this broader problem with that whole argument has it's a problem when you're trying to have this very high profile trial. People feel very strongly about in the city where it happened. People in city feel like the reputation of the city is all caught up in what happened. And that's the kind of situation that can give rise to arguments about transferred. Happened with the The boston marathon bombers death penalty since was reversed several months ago because of pretrial publicity in the boston area. But even there. It's difficult to do and as you point out. The trial has to be somewhere. It's has got to be in the state of minnesota and it's i. It's hard to imagine by anybody minnesota. That hasn't heard something about the case. Doesn't feel some connection to it as a minnesota so judge here did the best you can that situation. They worked hard. Can jury repeatedly reminded the jury of their responsibilities. And that's about the best you can do but it's something that the court of appeals is going to be asked to take a look it and is going salmon. Is there anything else that you may have seen. I don't know how closely watched because it was a long time. I was about a month three weeks to four weeks long. Anything else that happened in that trial that the defense attorneys could be looking at as a possible. You know what. We may have something here to appeal this. It will work very hard. It was remarkably smooth. There were a few times in the examination of prosecution. Witnesses where they sorta shake shaded that line between fact witness expert with us chief of police who was a powerful witness well-spoken fellow at times was talking about what the procedures of the department were at other times. He was a little more opinionated talking about sort of the values of the department. That kind of thing and there's arguably some arguments that went over the line and giving it a. He was such a high profile witness. Maybe that injected impermissible element the trial. It's hard to take evidence rulings like that. Though the three week trial and turn turned into reversible error in other words. I think at the end of the day. The defense has arguments make. But they're they're going to be long shots. Snuff battled reverse idi conviction and this judge worked very hard to try to avoid that. We're talking to attorney. David call here on. Klif about the possible appeal of the derek chauvin verdicts that came down earlier. This week are to have something like this. to murder. charges a manslaughter charge. guess convictions. We should call them at this point. I mean how likely these facts aside. How often do those appeals actually succeed. Well it's it's hard to generalize but but generally The best way to have a great winning appellate practices to only represent the parties the one below because generally they won because they had good evidence on their side of the judge didn't foul up so it's the the the odds are always in favor of affirmative and what you have to find what we call them. The trade harmful error. You can't just finding mistakes because nobody's perfect. There's always gonna be some mistakes here and there. You have to fight a mistake. It's harmful actually influences the outcome of the trial and that's harder to find particularly over trial like this that spans such a long period of time and had evidence from so many different places. Right david cole. Expert appellate judge constitutional expert. There's nothing he can't do. You can also read your tarot cards. David all right all right there. He goes david cole..

The attorneys were prepared. They were thorough but they were much less dramatic than i am. The the general demeanor of these attorneys was amazing.

Tucker Carlson Ends Interview After Arguing With Guest Who Criticizes Chauvin
"Onto conservatives having meltdowns over justice while americans have been celebrating the derek chauvin verdict and of course he was found guilty of three charges in the murder of george floyd some conservatives are having difficulty in dealing with this news. They don't like this reality tucker. Carlson for example was so distraught with the verdict then he had a complete meltdown when his guest of former new york corrections officer dared to disagree with him. Take a look. I just think that it was excessive. What should and what. I'd like to see guy who did it. Looks like the rest of his life in prison. So i'm kind of more worried about the rest of the country which thanks to police in action. In case you haven't noticed is like boarded up. So that's more mike gavin. Thank you no thank you. that is of the sociopaths. I have more to say but john. Why don't you know. I think he should have the biggest audience. I think it's a good thing that country would out of everyone who does political commentary media. He should have the biggest audience. That madman there. Who freaked out joker style because something that he as an incredibly richmond will never be affected by happened and some people were like kind of temporary relief. That the justice system actually worked for once and he freaked out about that because this guest who he brought on presumably to agree with him about literally everything said that kneeling on someone's neck for eight and a half minutes is excessive which it objectively is. So i don't know how we're supposed to respond to that. The guy sent a reasonable thing and tucker carlson absolutely lost his mind and then cut the guys. Mike
"derek chauvin" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"To jalen and jacoby jalen. We have the honour. We have the privilege of being joined once again by social and political commentator angelo. Right thank you so much for joining the program. Adamy angela when you heard the guilty verdict for officer derek. Chauvin for the murder of george. Floyd what was your initial response. My initial response was disbelief. Like so many of us. It wasn't One count of second degree manslaughter. Now one count of Second degree murder or one count of third degree murder. It was all three of the charges brought against him and so there was a little bit of disbelief than there was some relief than there was some worry because i was like oh. Sentencing is in two months. It's actually going to be the day after juneteenth on june twentieth on. We really understand his fate. I was on clubhouse last night on this app. I don't know if you are familiar. Used it but i was talking about how you know Even with the bit of relief i feel. There's something in me. That feels a little bit of guilt. Because i don't really like the carso system. Right i don't think that it's really there to rehabilitate rehabilitate anyone but similar to how i think So many of us have looked at these cases in the past. I was like the whole system is actually on his back in. You all need to prove to black people that you care about us enough to punish people in our lives are taken so alive of dichotomy and hypocrisy. Even in my feelings about yesterday angela. Would you feel are the next steps and police reform. Mccain you educate the audience about the george floyd justice and policing it. Yeah jalen it's it's such a good question. I think what is so interesting is Today their articles coming out About what members of congress wag members of congress on both sides of the aisle are saying about police reform. They're saying that this verdict means that there's less pressure for police reform. And i'm saying how you know at the end of the day this is one verdict and there are so many others. Were there been no consequences or just barely consequences and so what we did here yesterday. From commonly harris what we did here yesterday even from president biden as well was that it's time to continue the quest for police reform. Whether you believe there's an ability to reform the system or you believe that the system selves is inevitably self needs to significantly change to the point where it's overhauled and we create something completely new to restore justice and safety in communities just the george floyd justice in policing act has passed the house of representatives It passed last congress reintroduced by congressman karen bass. This congress who was the chair of the congressional black caucus last congress really led the way it has passed again this past just last month in march and what we're waiting for is senate action Waiting for senators on both sides of the out to say you know what. This matters enough Whether this is a vote that will cost me my seat. What i know needs to be the truth in two thousand twenty one is that it's okay for black people to live and thrive in this country Qualified immunity is on the table in that bill looking at Varying implicit bias issues. Money for training. All of those things are in this builder. A number of activists among us jalen who say you know what. George floyd justice and policing act does not go far enough and i understand that but what. I'm not willing to do any more. Say you know what nothing is better than something. That's not my posture. And i think that we can't afford to toe that line When you consider that even at the press the press conference that ben crump attorney. Ben crump held yesterday right after the verdict. They were talking about justice in policing. What we know is that the system has to change in order for this to change. Policies must ship. Are the only people responsible for changing policy at the federal level and members of congress on the in the house and the senate absolutely not. We need to see the same kinds of reforms. Abolition defunding divestment at the state and local levels as well today. We also know that merrick garland who is the attorney. General is holding a press conference to talk about An intensive and broad sweeping investigation into police practices in minneapolis. We all know just from the sheer number of police officers law enforcement officers who were at the capitol on january six. That brought me. Investigation doesn't just belong in minneapolis. It belongs all over this country. Those are the kinds of things that will happen when you have legislation on the books. They can't just rollout piecemeal investigation after investigation. I am rambling. I want to hear your questions in your thoughts. But i think it's so important to understand all of the many layers when you put pill went back. There are so many more to go. So that's why it's hard to completely breathe but making some really good points. And i think one thing that people need to not overlook is while derek chauvin was found guilty of these charges. There were three other police officers there on the scene that did not take action to stock their children from committing this murder. Now in the wake of this case there was this uprising. There was this global protest in in the wake of that. There were statements made by corporations at promises of to have more diversity at the corporate levels up and down the entire hierarchy there also sports leagues that donated money and made promises to include more diversity in the front offices of their teams and their structures. Now that we're sort of eight to nine to ten months removed from that. How do you feel about the what the work that's been done since these promises were made. Well the first thing i would say to you ge- club as its It's frustrating that it took us watching the death of a blaming man for nine minutes and twenty nine seconds for corporate america relax that black participation involvement engagement for other members of the pipe pot communities right like that. Now we matter now. Our voices should be heard now. Black lives matter should be in the signature of my email. Right like it actually is is is is frustrating. It is disrespectful to have to go to. Just get us to some point of equity. And what i will say is that. I hope that it doesn't take another crisis. But i can tell you from my own experience from conversations that i was even having this weekend. Really more attuned to Reading this a really powerful book by resume. Menachem called my grandmother's hands and he of course talks about like fragility. Many people will know the book written by robin diangelo. As well and you find yourself often in situations on with people in corporate america with some of your white friends where your comforting them letting them know like you know the road might be long but it's worth it right men while we're just trying to ensure that we can get on equal footing after being a part of this country it's institutions it systems for more than four hundred years helping to build the things that impressed us right. And so what. I'm saying is. I think that we really have to get to a point where there is meaningful systemic change not lip service not a promissory note on diversity. Not a pledge that you take an ask all your corporate grants to sign on like real meaningful change in part of that begins in our bodies which is resumes point. All of us are carrying around some type of trauma walking around unnaturally unreasonably so fearing each other. And we're not gonna get very far like that and so it really is time for the folks who are of the instruments of the oppressive systems to engage in real radical shifts and radical should not scare the people who are watching at home who might also watch the super conservative news station. It just means big. Change angela in sports. Oftentimes athletes and coaches argue at the officials and usually when people watch the game they say. I don't know why arguing at the ref they're not going to change the call but when you play the game you understand..

"We will do what happened to the witness of blood on their door. This was an attempt to intimidate the jury. It's borrowed precisely glucose klux klan of the nineteen thirties. One thousand nine hundred eighty s when the klan march outside of courthouses and threaten all kinds of reprisals if the jury of dared convicted white person or quin black person. so maxine waters amongst others. Hakim jeffries robin. The angelo tani see coats. They are beginning a preemptive strike against the jury because they're very worried i teach this in the previous segment. I want to build this out. Further after the death of george floyd a bunch of people without talent in wisdom got a lot of power and money. They became really import including maxine waters. An entire cottage industry was created around race baiting. In america almost overnight now it existed before george floyd but the flow of money the activism the book sales the tv interviews. They sti- rocketed. After the death of george floyd under a guiding principle that george floyd was targeted because of his race and he was murdered on the side of the street. So as this trial has preceded and these facts have been given some airtime all of a sudden as i'm just talking to every day americans people no longer are repeating the line or the lie from last summer that this was purely a racial incident that people are saying at george. Floyd was overdosing. He was resisting arrest and this was obviously a desirable outcome. But this was not a nine thousand nine hundred twenty s kkk style lynching. Which is what we were programmed. The believe of all you watched was cnn or read the new york times or flipped through your instagram feed. Lee strobel is an amazing christian apologist. He wrote the book case for christ. Where my favorite books and lee strobel argues in his book. That if you are able to disprove the resurrection with you are able to disprove christianity. And i think he's generally right about that. The heart of christianity was not the fact that jesus existed. It wasn't the fact that jesus had inspiration inspired people that he said things that were true. That if you're able to prove or disprove the resurrection. Christianity just begins to follow up at least drove was a fact-finding editor for the chicago sun-times tribune and he was an atheist and he started to investigate this and as he investigated it he realized that the amount of evidence around the resurrection was so overwhelming he himself became a christian struggles entire belief. Is that if you're able to disprove the resurrection. Christianity becomes completely debunked. I don't think the situation here is dissimilar if you are able to come up with a verdict that says that george floyd did not die because of the intentional preconceived motivation of derek chauvin than the religion of woke ism..

"Death of george floyd that derek chauvin trial once again here is abc news. Correspondents erin katersky former. Minneapolis police officer. Derek chauvin has been convicted of murdering. George floyd eleven months ago something that sparked a protest movement for racial justice and we heard from the attorney general of minnesota keith ellison the lead prosecutor that movement would continue. I would not call. Today's verdict justice however because justice implies true restoration but it is accountability which is the first step towards justice. Minnesota attorney general keith. Ellison moments after the verdict was. Read by peter kay hill the judge in hennepin county who presided over the three week trial of derek chauvin. His bail was revoked. He was led away in handcuffs. He will be formally sentenced about two months from now. Abc's mark remillard joins us from the streets of minneapolis where there has been celebration for the last several hours since that verdict was read mark. Yeah erin The crowds getting out a little bit here in the house but there are still people drumming out here. There's still signs and flag waving There's still someone cooking barbecue out here so a very festive atmosphere but I do think about What we heard about ten minutes before the verdict was read One of the guys who grabbed them with phone out here was telling. This crowd of hundreds of people have gathered to hear the verdict had set in ten minutes. We're going to witness history. And i think you know just harkening back to what biden said there that this could be a giant step forward as violence says in the march for justice in america. I think that is a large part of what the style of relief that occurred today. But i think when is being kept in mind here. Is that this city is counting to state. This country has been dealing with this for eleven months. Since george floyd died we still have the sentencing to get through for derek chauvin and three other officers. Who are facing charges. Aiding and abetting the charges. The derek chauvin has been found guilty of in minneapolis in the nation will be living with this case for some time not to mention the funeral. Two days from now of dante right young motorist who was shot and killed by police in minneapolis suburb. And so as the attorney general of minnesota noted that the fight for racial justice continues. Robert de cello joins us. He's a trial lawyer. Who represents victims of police abuse and maintains a practice focused on these kinds of reforms. What is possible robert after the verdict that we witnessed today and good evening What's what's possible. Well i'll tell you if you would've said to me Two years ago. That i'd be on the air with you talking about a case like this. I'd i'd say Someone's you know someone's hallucinating. And this is. This is all a dream For civil rights across the country cannot be overstated. This is the biggest event in modern history for civil rights movement. Where which began if you can remember and just just go back to the days that we've seen in black and white film of dogs chasing people in hoses being used on protesters and martin luther king and then warping ahead some thirty years to rodney king and so it continued until today where we got the very first Moment of accountability and that accountability has has formed a cornerstone against which all future policy discussions legal discussions and Reform discussions will take place. It's it's an unbelievable day unbelievable. Even the president of the united states noted a short while ago that conviction of a police officer is much too rare of an and most families do not see the the kind of outcome that the floyd family is seeing. does that begin to change. As a result of this. I you know what aaron great question and i and i say that because i have as a former prosecutor and criminal defense lawyer and civil rights lawyer trial lawyer. I've been in all three positions on this I've prosecuted bad guys. And i've defended a few and never once. Were they a police officer. When i is defending as a civil rights lawyer trial where i constantly encounter. police officers who May are are alleged to have done bad things so with this verdict. I'm telling you it's going to change. The dynamics both in terms of how police departments proceed. And there's good and bad to that you know. I've talked to some officers. i'm friends with law enforcement. I've got friends in that world and they're concerned you know how do i. How do i enforce the law. How do i use lethal force without showing up on tv. This is a real concern on the other hand. We've got the conversation that we're having today. Which is celebration conversation of joy and celebration for what's taken place. That conversation that says finally people who are less fortunate and who are largely under representative has found a day of of of justice so The conversations are going to start. This case will be the impetus to all of that work that he has to come forward. And it's my earnest. Hope that we see both sides law enforcement and civilians who are needing them. Come together and make those reforms that need to be made. Were speaking with robert cello. A trial attorney somebody who represents victims of police abuse and you noted you were And neglected to mention at the outset. A former prosecutor just received a statement from attorney general merrick garland on the verdict in the chauvin trial and and he notes that the justice department has an ongoing federal civil rights investigation into the death of george floyd. Do you believe federal charges are warranted. Here i don't know i mean you know that. What a great. What a great talking point in that we can. We can imagine them to be there. you know. I'm calling you in talking to you now. From cleveland ohio. And so we had that very same thing happened under eric holder when trayvon martin and tamir rice Were were popular in in being talked about as cases in which amir racist came up to young twelve year old. Boy who was shot by cleveland police investigation sued. No charges filed this case. Though of george floyd death in the derek chauvin prosecution may change the reaction to the that happens the doj at the you know at that level and they may do some prosecuting of of the Of the department. Although i don't find it likely because the prosecution itself of chauvin solves a lot of.

"Crowds gathered outside the hennepin county courthouse responding to the news that former minneapolis police officer derek. Chauvin has been convicted of the murder. Of george floyd twelve jurors found show than guilty on all charges second degree murder third degree murder and second degree manslaughter. All our reporter. Aaron elworthy was outside the courthouse in the crowd. I was actually standing with maurice lester hall. Who was with. George lloyd on may twenty fifth and the verdict. He started to smile after the verdict. The judge revoked showdowns bail and remanded him to the hennepin. County sheriff's office. The rare conviction of a police officer came just days after the killing of another black man dante right by a police officer in a nearby

"He was in distress and trying to verbalize that that should have stopped. There's an initial reasonable this and trying to just get him under control over the first few seconds but tab once there was no longer any resistance and clearly when mr floyd was no longer responsive and even motionless to continue to apply that level of force to a person prone out handcuffed behind their back that in no way shape or form anything that is by policy is not part of our training it is certainly not part of our ethics values. We also got this email from jerome. Who says the defense strongly maintained that chauvin was behaving in a reasonable way for an officer. Under the circumstances. Why didn't the defense have officer witnesses to back up. Its position professor. Fireman your thoughts. Yeah i mean one of the things that that is also so different about this case is this is one of the rare cases in which a line of officers lined up and broke the code of silence to say. This is not us. This is not who we are and one of the many reasons why it is so difficult for prosecutors to convict police. Who abuse is that code of silence that reticence unwillingness of police officers to tell us testify against fellow police that they'll back up their fellow police and one of the things that you know in this goes there and also together and the challenges of convicting any on-duty police officer particularly of the murder of a black person is that jurors people in society. Don't wanna convict. Police don't want to believe that the people who were supposed to trust with so much power to protect us would use that power to hurt us and intentionally and so. This was a i. Think a a huge victory in terms of for the prosecution being able to lineup witness after witness police officers and one of the things that the prosecutors tried to say again and again and again their theme is this isn't a case against the minneapolis police department. This is a case against derek chauvin. This isn't policing. This is murder. And i think they did an incredibly effective job in part because of having people like the minneapolis. Police chief people like the very person who trained derek chauvin on the use of force to say this is what we train our folks to do. And that's consistent with what we've seen around the nation. This is one of the rare cases in which we've seen police officers and leaders throughout the united states. Say this is an us. It is very rare. Even in cases where the video to get the kind of condemnation including from among law enforcement. And that's one of the things that's different in this case and can make a significant difference with the jury. Trial hasn't happened in a vacuum. There have been two other high profile police killings since the trial started down a ride in brooklyn center minnesota and seventh-grader adam toledo in chicago professor rate. I'm how did you react to the news of those stories breaking weil. this trial was underway. I mean i thought it was business as usual as it relates to police relations and minority communities in america i think is a couple of things and it also speaks to derek chauvin and potentially why he didn't take the stand because it probably would have opened him up to those myriad of upwards of twenty misconduct complaints that he's had where he would've been asked has he been in these situations before and it would have opened up some information that the judge the judge had previously thrown out that that i thought the prosecution really needed but they did an excellent job. Look when we look across the country and we heard this the stats earlier. That over one thousand people to kill police every single year and black people are killed about every every forty hours part of thinking through that. Is that oftentimes. Police officers are not held. Accountable oftentimes do to qualified immunity. So they're not held accountable civilly fairly and they're also not held accountable criminally as we heard part of who is held taxpayers. We look over the past five years and we just look at the major twenty metro areas in the us. Two billion dollars this villian payouts for police misconduct have been paid out the police killings. Like george floyd twenty. Seven million is just the tip of the iceberg there mini more than one hundred and fifty thousand three hundred thousand primarily in cities like chicago and new york but was telling. Is that police. Misconduct complaints have actually risen more in suburban in rural areas then in urban areas. Now part of thinking through this money is that taxpayers on the hook for it. It does not come come out of the police department budget and part of that is we have to make those changes to hold officers and more importantly police departments accountable for what's going on so one thing i've been recommending that my research has led me to is looking at police department insurance policies and police officer liability insurance. I think this will make a huge shift. A majority of americans well over sixty percent think that qualified immunity should be repealed. And i think these are the changes that will lead to some of the changes from these incidents happening man. I'm curious to hear how minnesota reacted especially to the dante. Right police shooting in brooklyn center minnesota. Because again happened as the trial was happening in the background i would say it is a tragedy in and of itself but it couldn't have happened at the worst possible time amid this trial amid all of the the tension happening here In in the community and people demanded charges against the officer. Kim potter the prosecutor in nearby washington county manslaughter charge against her but There was a protest Just outside his house the other day where people were demanding a more serious charge of murder of for that killing where the officer allegedly confused her tasers and john charm and shot mr right during a traffic stop professor fetterman. There's been a theme of fear in this case as there is in many police shooting cases the idea that the officer was justified because they feared for their safety. As you watch this case unfold. What was your thinking around that argument. Yeah and and i think it's it's also appropriate. You ask this in the context when you just asked about adam to lehto in dante right because this is a consistent theme across each of those cases that you're seeing raise i by the police and the question is who spear matters what you're seeing in each and every one of these cases are police officers. Who been acculturated been trained to see every black person out there as a potential threat As someone to be afraid of police officers go through these shoot. don't shoot. Scenario is in their training and their taught again and again. If you don't shoot don't shoot quickly enough. That bad things will happen when the reality is the likelihood of that bad thing happening is one in a tiny tiny tiny small fraction. And what's also interesting on the other hand so while the theme in each of these cases by the police officers is fear fear of black people fear of the quote unquote angry mob. People who are hurling insults. People saying. Please help him..
Brandon Wolf: The Pulse Survivor Is Optimistic About Gun Reform
"Week. I can think of no better person to hear from than brandon. Wolff brandon is the survivor of the pulse nightclub shooting and since then has become one of the most visible and vocal activists in our community fighting from gun reform so on today's episode. We're going to do things a bit differently. We're going to revisit an earlier conversation with brandon originally aired on a luminary app. Just a heads up. He does she were few details about the actual shooting at polls. If you'd rather not hear that kind of thing you can scroll head about five minutes but before we do here that i we're gonna call brennan up to check in what he's been doing since we last spoke. Hello hey brandon jeffrey masters. Hey jeffrey how are you. I don't k- i think. Just okay how about you. I'm hanging in there. You know it is There's a lot going on some progress. Being made some challenges. But i'm hanging in there. Thanks you said there's a lot going on and on the morning that we're taping this just for context for everybody this week. We've been in the middle of the derek chauvin trial for the killing of george floyd of you days ago dante. Right twenty year old was killed at a traffic stop last night. Video was released of adam toledo thirteen year old shot in chicago. And this morning we learned about a shooting at a fedex. Facility in indianapolis eight were killed there and seven were injured on top of all of that. Is this epidemic of violence against trans people. Most recently to trans women in north carolina. My home state were killed. Jada peterson and one still unnamed. That makes fourteen trans people that we know of that have been killed just this year. That is almost one a week so when we talk about going numb is that unavoidable for self-preservation or is there a better way to look at it. Well i think it's a great question. And i appreciate you sort of laying it out like that because we're just talking about the things that that are happening right now in this moment really in the last week or two right but this is sort of a drumbeat of violence that is pervasive in american
"derek chauvin" Discussed on Post Reports
"Today demands for change after the death of dante. Right and the defense of officer derek. Chauvin so what is happening right now in brooklyn center really. There's two different things going on here. I mean the first thing that has been going on throughout the minneapolis. Twin cities region for the number of weeks has been the trial of derek. Chauvin the officer. Who was accused of murdering george floyd last year. Tim craig is a national correspondent for the post. He's been reporting from brooklyn center a suburb of minneapolis. That is left this entire region on edge as they wait for a verdict and people were sort of fearful here about the possibility that there could be even widespread civil unrest rioting or violence if the trial results in an acquittal of the officer at the same time despite all that anxiety and tension here over the weekend there. Was this new fresh incident where a police officer in brooklyn center shot and unarmed black man. Twenty years old named dante right police have said they stopped because he had expired registration tax then they realized that there was a warrant out for rates arrest. They tried to arrest him right. Struggled and former officer. Kim potter shot him in the chest. Police say that she thought she'd reach for tasers and not her gun. She has since resigned and has been charged with second degree manslaughter. That touched off even more zeidan anger really here that this occur in how the police department that is just on the border in minneapolis. That saw the pain in the horror in the the feeling of tragedy. That community suffered last year during the george floyd incident how they allowed that to happen again so there's been several more nights of rioting and protests this week people scared and people are sort of anxious they want to move on but they keep being reminded of the painful lessons that they experienced in this community last year when the george floyd matter erupted throughout the region. So for the people that you've been talking to what connection do they draw between their own experiences and what happened to dante right though not surprised in some way yes surprised because everyone in the nation as surprised that an officer could mistake a gun. Further taser as we know was the case in this instance surprising. But i don't think they're surprised at the. Please allow themselves to be put in a position where such a confrontation was even possible. So i i get the sense that people sort of expected that the police were being fairly aggressive in their decisions about who they pull over and of course many people believe that those decisions are also influenced by the color of the skin of the people who are behind the wheel. The people that you've talked to do. They seem to believe that what happened to dante was in fact an accident that this was just like someone humint they don't in this both community members and also frankly. Dante writes family members and their attorneys. They all say the same thing that this is not an accident on what a lot of people also point out for those who've seen the video is it wasn't like this was a split-second decision of her pulling out the gun and firing and they sort of make the assessment. That is how you make this mistake. Knowing that you're you're holding that weapon for so long pointed at the suspect or the individual. So they don't buy that it was. It was an accident. They don't buy that. A twenty five year veteran of the force could make a mistake like that or an axe. Have an accent like that. They think that it's something else going on here. So tell me more about the police department in brooklyn center. It's a relatively small force because the city itself is relatively small thirty thousand residents and the police force about forty nine officers. I believe you know it's been kind of controversial here is that none of the officers live in the community. They all live somewhere else Why is that. Why don't think it's necessarily that uncommon. I think a lot of cities. even you know most. The police officers do not live in the city. They commute into the city. I think if you go to washington. Dc for instance. I believe many officers in washington. Dc in maryland. Virginia or even as far away as west virginia so it's not totally uncommon but to advocates and activists. It kind of just shows you. How disconnected police department can become from their community. These people are not living there. They're coming in. And it's very easy for activists to say or even residents to say they do their jobs more kind of an occupying force than as a part of the community. This is not new. But it's been a fairly controversial aspect of policing for long time and the other issue is just a general lack of diversity. We don't have exact numbers because they have not given it to us but the mayor has said that very few of the officers are black or even minorities so in the city. That's now fifty percent persons of color to have such a low of diverse officers in your police force that also raises questions concern about. Has the city been doing everything that could be to recruiting police force. That looks like the community that they are trying to protect and serve and as people are out protesting. How are police responding especially considering the fact that minneapolis nearby has had a pretty checkered or recent history with demonstrators and protesters. Is there a sense that police here for a better handle on what is and is not an appropriate response one. This is a very robust large large law enforcement presence because frankly there was already going to be a very large law enforcement presence in this region anyways because people are preparing for the outcome of the derek chauvin so many of those resources were here. their national guardsmen. Here the state troopers ear. There are sheriff's deputies here. They are very heavily armed vehicles. They are surrounding the police station. Where the protests have taken place and they do in curfew is implemented which has usually been about between seven and ten o'clock they will move in and disperse the crowds firing chemical irritant gas and also firing what are commonly referred to as rubber bullets. They're making a rest. They are making arrests of people. Who are violating the curfew. So i think the law enforcement community here is really trying to not allow this to spread out of either geographically as far as it did last summer or the intensity the protests through spread as far as it did last december. He seems to be working pretty fine this week but again. There's a lot of attention here about what happened next week or the week. After if the derek chauvin trial results in acquittal or hung jury. Tim craig is a reporter for the poster in brooklyn center. The story was produced by mattel. Cough did you know.

"Today. The prosecution's case so far in the closely watched trial of derek. Chauvin the former minneapolis police officer accused of murdering george floyd. I spoke with my colleague. John l. ago in minneapolis. It's thursday april eighth talk. I wanted to start by having you set the scene there in minneapolis this past week or so. What are your impressions of this child. So far it's really a city on dry bell. I mean you walk around downtown. There's cement barricades with fencing and barbed wire. There's national guard. Armored vehicles national guard members who are standing outside watching over everything people already starting to board up windows. So there's clearly this underlying tension of you know what's going to happen with this trial. What's the verdict can be. And is that going to lead to more unrest like they saw last year when there was lots of vandalism and buildings burning amid mass protests for racial justice. So you really get right around town. This is something that cannot be avoided that people cannot stop thinking about. And then you look you know in the courtroom now and you have to look from far right because of covid protocol. Very few people out in the courtroom that reporters were not even allowed in there. We were allowed to have one person representing all print media one person representing all broadcast media. So here my hotel room with a bag of chips in zimbabwe water watching this trial. And you know what's proceeding inside the courtroom go. It's like a range of emotions and impressions. I would say because on the one hand. You have this video of george floyd death playing over and over and over and over and over again during testimony in the courtroom so it's in many ways kind of like bringing that kind of trauma also the surface again right so does like that emotional parliament. Then there's also like it's a trial right it's technical they parse all these different legal nuances all these medical nuances and you really see a battle. Develop inside the courtroom over fundamentally. What is this case for the prosecution. It's about that video that nine minutes plus that you see derek chauvin kneeling george floyd's neck and then the defense saying no no no. It's not the video it's all these other things. Don't just look at the video and so that's really the battle that have been drawn as you watched this trial each and every day. So let's talk about what you've been able to watch or piece together inside. The courtroom as the prosecution has laid out its case and started to call with this is. Where should we start. The heart of the case really is how george floyd die because the prosecution is attempting to show that he died because direct show the knelt on his neck for more than nine minutes right and so in order to do that. They have to have medical experts. Who can attest to that right. the state calls a doctor braford langenfeld john and the one expert that we've seen probably said that most powerfully so far is the actually -mergency room doctor who pronounced george floyd dead at the hospital and treated him before he died. When mr floyd's body when this was brought in would you describe it as an emergency situation. yes absolutely. what was this condition in terms of his cardiac condition. He was in cardiac arrest he said essentially that when george floyd came to him that his heart was already stopped. Mr foot had been in arrest for by this time. sixty minutes. I determined that the likelihood of any meaningful outcome was far below one percent and that we would not be able to resuscitate mr floyd and so then pronounced him dead and he said that from all the signs that he had all the information that he received that in a nutshell and he did not have sufficient oxygen was. You're leaving theory. Then for the cause of missing floyd cardiac arrest oxford oxygen deficiency. That was one of the more likely possibilities. I felt that lack of oxygen to a six year and that essentially causes heart to fail. And 'cause it's hard to stop and doctors there another name for death by oxygen deficiency spacier commonly understood term. Thank you dr langenfeld. And that's very important point because for one the medical examiner who actually did the autopsy on george floyd did not say fixation as the cause of death he basically said that george floyd heart stopped. And what's the prosecution is trying to show is that it was the fixation that led to that while the defense on the other hand is trying to show that. Hey there were all these reasons. For george floyd heart-stopping. You know one of them being his drug. Use one of them being in a lot of adrenaline pumping through him. So the defense is really trying to paint a holistic picture of george floyd his whole medical history in its drug use and things like that and use that dog you while the prosecution is saying. Hey no it's a situation that but for the fact that derek chauvin knelt on his neck george floyd would be alive today so given that testimony it feels like standing whether or not show wtn's actions were justified would also be crucial to the prosecution's case. So how of the approach that. Yeah so once you get past the medical portion of it you have to look at the policing portion right because there are times when police officers are allowed to use force even deadly force right and so the question was whether this was a case where chauvin needed deadly force or at least needed the force that he was using which was kneeling on. George floyd neck late and the prosecutors. They brought in several members of the police departments talk about this from the longest serving homicide detective in the department. All the way up to the police chief soon so the man who's leading the departments. So tell me about this. Longest serving officer from minneapolis police department. What was his testimony. Yeah so this is lieutenant richard. Zimmerman what is your view of that use of force during that time totally unnecessary. What do you mean well first of all pulling him down to the ground face down and putting your neon a knack for that amount of time is just uncalled for I saw no reason why the officers felt they were in danger. If that's what they felt and that's what they would have to feel to be able to use that kind of force and what the defense has tried to argue is that hey we're these situations certain even when individuals go conscious. There's chances that they can you know. Wake back up and then become even more aggressive again. But what zimmerman essentially said was that when you have someone in handcuffs as george floyd was resist the real threat that they pose goes way down based on your review of body cams. Did you see any need for officer chauvin to improvise by putting his knee on mr floyd for nine minutes and twenty nine seconds and then we get their top official of all your owner. The state calls chief madera here. Odongo police chief. Madeira are dondo. Who is the head of the department is a black man. In the first black police chief facilities ever had and he took to the stand and essentially says that what derek chauvin did not only was it not in line with department policy Do you believe the defendant followed depot departmental policy five dash three or four regarding deescalation.

"Selection is set to begin on monday in the trial of derek chauvin. The former minneapolis. Police officer charged in the death of george. Floyd chauvin was seen on video. Last may kneeling on floyd's neck for more than nine minutes. As floyd said he couldn't breath the question at the heart of the case whether what people saw on video was murder prosecutors say the forty six old was killed by show. Wtn's the but the defense will likely argue. That floyd staff was the result of a struggle with police drugs in his system and health issues. Like heart disease criminal. Justice correspondent tammy abdollah has more on what to expect. We're going to get a lot of the bystanders. Who were there likely. Called as witnesses so they will tell us what was seen on video by by you know because we can't necessarily see clearly what what's happening on the bystander side of things and there was an off duty firefighter who the prosecution's likely to call up. Who repeatedly i think it was thirty times asked officers checked. George floyd pulse and wanted to provide medical assistance but was pushed off and pushed away by derek chauvin. So she's probably going to come up as a witness to this to this video into what happened. There are also going to probably call up other folks who were there including a professional fighter former professional fighter. Who did mixed martial arts and who you know basically was asking chauvin and other officers to stop doing this quote unquote blood chauque. Which he is learned is very dangerous to us when fighting because it can easily kill a person we will likely get into aspects of what police need to do when they believe someone is resisting arrest or when someone is resisting arrest. There is very clear. Training in minneapolis police departments policies and procedures handbook. That says that you know you can use any conscious neck restraint when someone is quote unquote actively resisting police. But but you cannot if they are passively resisting police. There will be a whole discussion about this use of force and whether it was warranted when especially after george floyd became unresponsive for roughly three minutes and chauvin continued to keep his knee on george floyd neck for all the latest throughout the trial.

"derek chauvin" Discussed on What A Day
"On today's show a conversation with journalists house lardy about derek chauvin and his upcoming trial over the killing of george floyd benson headlights right so next week. Minnesota jury selection will begin the derek shop and trial. He's the former minneapolis police officer. Who knelt on george floyd's neck and killed him last summer and after jury selection. The trial itself is expected to begin at the end of the month. Chauvin is currently facing charges of second degree murder. Second degree manslaughter and keith. Ellison the state attorney general is working to reinstate a charge of third degree murder as well too big case. Obviously and it's definitely going to get a lot of media attention in the coming days already there reports of security preparations being taken around the courthouse including barbed wire. It is intense right and so we wanted to take some time today to dive a little bit deeper last month. Marshall project reporters two miles. Lardy and abby van sickle published a report detailing prior instances ravin use excessive force very similar excessive force in restraining people and got their first hand account of those encounters. We spoke with miles about this reporting how it could play into the trial and what the results will or won't mean for the american police system. Here's our conversation miles. Thank you so much for being on the show. I appreciate you having me. Yeah so let's talk about their shaaban all right so he was a minneapolis police officer for almost twenty years first off. What exactly do we know about his record as an officer and his past incidents of violence. Well what we know is that derek chauvin was the subject of at least twenty two complaints over his careerism. Minneapolis police department We know only one of those incidents resulted in any discipline of any What we also know through our reporting Is that a number of folks who encountered derek chauvin as a police officer For taken down or arrested in startlingly similar ways. To the way that george floyd was arrested which and by that i mean either grabbed by the neck Or held down with force and pressure applied to the neck or the top of the back while prone on the ground. That's horrible Jeez and you spoke to some of the people that have had violently arrested. You know. i've read some articles. They're really really excellent. And can you tell us a little bit more about you know those individuals and what. They had to say about their encounters with him. Yeah absolutely. I mean i'd start with The woman who what was the first person we mentioned in our articles zoya code She was arrested by a derek chauvin after a domestic incident in her in her home and She just it was very emotional for her. To talk about it She just described it. As you know this man at the zoya maybe about one hundred hundred and ten pounds soaking wet How they arrested her in her own home. Handcuffed her how she wasn't fighting. Back are resisting in any way. They carried her out of her home while handcuffed placed her on the ground That's actually one of the things that that came up in our our reporting in the police report they said they placed her on the grass Zoya told us that she remembered very distinctly being placed on the concrete. And how you know how. Hard and how Uncomfortable it was to be under. Show vins new With her her upper body all all press into the concrete and the attorney general in their report Or in a report that detailed this arrest were able to get a of the body camera footage and it showed that in fact Zoya had been placed primarily on the concrete But yeah to to go back to her account you just remember is not resisting But but thinking they're going to kill me Zoya new philander casteel. Not really well. But she knew him she'd Known him from growing up in in minneapolis and this was about a year after he had been killed. in the minneapolis suburb by a saint. Anthony police officer and she remembered. And you know really stuck with me calling out. You don't kill me. Don't kill me like you killed. 'cause jeez so in all of these incidents you know what really stood out to you in these stories and these interviews with these people who are speaking now for the first time about their experiences you know not just the consistency but the fact that it's all with the same person and a Curious when you're hearing this because you're reporting on it. How do you know feel about that. I don't know man. you know. First and foremost. It's always Empathy right at and Being thankful that people are willing to sh- to revisit these painful memories and traumatic memories And do so in the service of the general public understanding what what happened So i think that's the first thing that comes up for me for me personally on the all of the other things that stood out. Is you know all of the people who spoke to for this story. had a number of interactions with police and law enforcement in their lives before And yet they all sort of singled. Derek chauvin out as being uniquely gruff or abrasive or uncaring about their pain or discomfort. Right so like there's a I think people have an intuition that oh you know anyone who gets arrested is gonna feel like the cop treated them badly because no one wants to get arrested. That may be true too to some degree. But i talked to some use of force experts while reporting the story and i kind of mentioned that point and one of the folks i talked to. I remember him saying no. Actually most people who are justice involved Kind of care about procedure. And they care about you. Okay fine you know i was. I was doing something wrong. You caught me arrested me. It is what it is but treat me like a human being right right. Treat me like my life matters And so that that is also one of the things that stood out to me. You know this. This was a bridge too far for all the all the people who we spoke to bitterness. It's you know. Just an accurate description of how people are feeling there'd be right right. That's a great way to put it right and so at this point. Prosecutors want to use these cases at show. Vince trial and other examples where he didn't actually use excessive force. What prosecutors saying so far. And how important is this to their overall case. I can't speak on how important it is to their case can say that A number of these Into of these individuals are on the witness list so there is a potential that they will be called What i can also say that the the judge federal judge in this case judge k hill has rejected the majority of the cases that prosecutors had raised their basically. They're allowing two cases to be entered into evidence In this matter and they've They've rejected the majority of them or the judge has rejected the majority of them. And so I you know. I think that's one of the one of the reasons why this story also felt if you you could say gratifying to publish. Is that The jury in this case is not is unlikely to hear many of the stories that we told You know but the the public will be able to hear.
