"Go on. So. In the movies what what is the answer in circumstances like this and let me let me be specific about what I mean by circumstances like this, you have a suspect who you have officers around they have weapons drawn. The suspect is not complying repeatedly not complying it's it may be clear. It may not be clear that there could be some mental health issue at play here some sort of crisis taking place. What what is the intermediate? What are the steps in between? The tasers that we saw and then firing twenty one shots in a matter of seconds. Will they use the beanbag shotgun that we met on a bailable? Hit with somewhere around twelve rounds of that that also did not incapacitate him. The I'm telling you. The best thing we can do is train away which we can get these suspects in custody. We backed up so far that there was no other option. The only thing we could do is go past our patrol cars which. If they get in one of those then you've got another type of issues. A lot of times we shotguns in the bag they are fifteen We have all kinds of weapons that are really available. Should they be able to get into those cars? So we can't allow that either some point you have to draw a line and say, okay, we have the whole disliked. This in this particular incident, they can paint him in small area. The sergeant run around People Watch for crossfire do this do that? It's an unfortunate situation. But we didn't have I another example. They have these things called Bola wraps. It's a new technology supposed to shoot out something that wraps them up. And takes them now. We have forty those on his department. The only people have been trained with him so far those are the academy that we know. Have we had those that night they may help. There's other things out there that are being researched that that would help also to deal with this kind of situation, but we don't have that right now. So also rely strictly on their training and what they've been trained to that point. Let's go to Jimmy from west Houston Jimmy. What are your thoughts? Fog. Police chief officer Vado for firing. Those officers is totally wrong to shoot a man twenty with twenty one bullets. That's crazy. The police should know better than doing that and Have a bad habit of if he's doing exactly what they say they want to beat you up or shoot share they get rid of that attitude and. Help these people that are in distress. They could go over there and throw a net on the man or whatever are two or three up go there and handling with their bare hands or their gloves they don't need to shoot the man. And I. We want need all this shooting people in the back to stop all these chokehold stuff all these. warrantless. Break into people's homes to style read total reform of the police all over the country. All right. Thanks for the call in for the comment. Officer Griffiths any reaction to that. Yeah. First of all, the twenty one rounds understand that come walsers. The oldest ulcer, there was the sergeant. WHO fired two rounds? In that in that final incident in K. because he has been trained over the years he was attacked foster. They train bar two rounds, reassess reassess. These young guys haven't been through that. The only thing they've been through there's a academy training which you you shoot. Shoot shoot shoot shoot. It takes your brain one point two, five seconds to realize there is no longer a threat and stop what you're doing. In that amount of time, an officer can fire six rounds. The two officers that fired the most worst six rounds apiece. As says, they realize that that was done they stop and you can hear them on tape yellen ceasefire stop stop stop ceasefire. Carmen is in Houston Carmen. What's your question or comment? Yeah something really bothering me when you said officer Griffin that your son would never be in that position. with the law enforcement. But you gotta think. About All the black lives that are taking because Elise Brianna Taylor where her killers either been arrested. They she got. At her own apartment and then this is why we need to define the lease. Because empirical data showed that all that money should go to. Community services that actually Kansas sculling mental breakdowns rather than police twenty one fired shots. You know that makes no sense to. Other countries have great police them all of systems because they actually benefit and serve Protech, and there is no trust them police anymore. I don't trust. I'm going to be completely honest and our I'm I'm white passing. And I still fear for my life now and that was African American. I fear for my black brothers and sisters. All right. Thanks for the call in for the comments officer Griffith any response to that. Yes well, first of all the bagger there her belief that we're killing african-americans more than any other races just an accurate. There's a very well done study by Harvard University showing there is no disparity between the races when it comes to ostrumov shootings. There is no were out hunting people to kill. Them is just an accurate. It's. It's people that don't have a clue about what our job really is both. Had they go it had they went out and actually. Road with a police officer what they'd be on a day to day basis, they may have a different attitude. But they rather sit in their basement and just hot away from the world and say, everything every police officers back. It's just not accurate. We had over two million contexts Houston last year two, million contacts with citizens just. Only two hundred and seventy citizen complaints, and we only had fifteen shootings. have made seventeen but still. It's real. It's so minuscule. And out of those shootings, every single one of them had a weapon and they were all caught on video camera. And just to clarify since you mentioned this Harvard. Study I believe I'm looking at the correct paper from two thousand seventeen. It's noting that on nonlethal uses of force blacks and Hispanics are more than fifty percent more likely to experience some form of force in interactions with police. But adding controls that account for important context and civilian behavior. Reduces but cannot explain these disparities and then it goes on to say on the most extreme use of force officer involved shootings. That they find no racial differences in either the raw data or when contextual factors are taken into account. So with lethal uses force, you're correct on nonlethal they do see a disparity there. There is much more about this case including link to the body camera footage released. Thursday said Houston Public Media Dot Org. Douglas Griffith is First Vice President of the Houston.

"Jr Two eight four dash eight eight eight. Well let's talk about something else that's going on that that same day. I can't believe this is real October Thirteenth Shawn Michaels was beat up outside of a bar in Syracuse and depending on what story you believe it's been said it was non military guys or just one Jim Cornell has said that Shawn Michaels was allegedly hitting on a guy's girlfriend surrender wife and when show on a bulldog on their car to leave the servicemen. Pulled Sean out from the passenger side window and beat him up and Davey so big at the time. The passenger seat was pushed back. He's essentially trapped in the backseat and can't out Wendy. I hear about this. And where did you land on. Once you knew more of the details else the next day I heard about it. You know you concern. Somebody hurt hospitalized or whatever it sound like Some people were over served and the May have made the wrong comment around people. I don't know I wasn't there. And there are so many stores that emulate. That's that's the one of these sicknesses about wrestling. The the truth is never good enough. We have to embellish and make it a big deal. I think we're used to it in our in our day-to-day pro wrestling ackerman to embellish. I don't know what happened. I think simply a case of guys drinking too much being on the wrong territory I know cowboy was not happy about it because this is result antiquated rule. That if you lose a fight and the territory you're gone was the mid South route was not a real and wwe and nor should that have been at that time. Times Have Changed Times. Ed Changed so but bill didn't like the fact that happened and the guy so highly on the card and look bill had great respect for Sean. He started Sean Career mid South. So there's no there was no I land mosque's there is to fill the philosophy of a pro wrestler leaves losing a fistfight to a civilian is unacceptable. A If you don't think he can win the fight than some are another. Don't engage in but as I've always told the guys is pick your spots where you hang out go onto a local bar and trying to become the Alpha male in somebody else's bar in another city you don't live in is not real smart. You're you're you're safer going to a gentleman's club quite frankly because they have more secured for the ladies more security so it was a lot of lot of not a lot. There's a lot of wins a scorecard but cowboy didn't like that start for his run and thought you know we can't have guys getting draft and all this other stuff and made a big deal out of it where I thought all along is Simpson's case bronc place wrong time too many drinks you can't be the Alpha male somebody Oy Elsa Bar who's already got that territory marked so do you think how big of a role I mean. Do you think this is the straw that broke the camel's goes back. This is the shit. No Hell No. I think I think what happened was I. I think this wanted to make some major booking changes inches which would have started at the top which will include a diesel because diesel was a champion. Right I mean he was he was A. WW champion had been for a long time bills. Just saying well. It's not been drawn is gonNA make a change. I don't think a major diamond personally. I'm giving Nash. Is this no matter. Who The champion was is? Is it somebody who have been championed. That long and the territory's hit Kinda flattened out. Then it's time to make a change. The change could also be doing a better job Creating opponents for your champion we talked about Austin had the same issue where he wanted. I was just working in our book this weekend. In writing. A chapter about Steve's the discomfort and unhappiness the fact that the company failed miserably by not having any any heels ready for him and then wanted to lose out of the clear blue to rock lesser. And we'll we'll get all this stuff but point being is that sometimes. It's not the talents all the talents fault. That something sucking the kit. They don't do this Shit Acapella so that I thought that as we're talking about here in a few moments I thought Brett was the perfect opponent. Kevin Kevin had a certain style and talents had to be willing to adapt to Kevin. Kevin did well and stay awake. What Kevin did not do well like anybody would an interesting match and then are now initially talking about the Sean Michael Situation Russian Sean and the WWF? Nobody's pressing charges they just wanted to go away Of course they do have to go on TV and say that they're going to press charges and eventually actually Shawn Michaels does change his mind and press charges. The person is charged is a fellow named Douglas Griffith. Who's twenty three at the time he's charged with second degree? Assault Fault in the beating is supposed to go to court. On December fourteenth. He is stationed at Fort Drum the US army base and Watertown New York and The Gist is a pool. Sean out of the car slams his car door into his head and then slammed slams head on the car several times before David Boykin finally escape and make this gate the escape. The backseat escaped. The backs is that does that make you scratch your head. A little bit got stuck in the back seat. What the God damn? What does he in a Fiat? What are you GonNa get stuck in the backseat? Supposedly he was a he was to Cedar. And I can't believe they would have rented a two seater but supposedly he was in a two seater and as you said probably over served. This is an era of the company where guys weren't just drinking. They were also using so much. And other things they probably shouldn't be mixing with alcohol so he's probably not in a normal state of mind and I. I'm not saying that to speak ill of the dead. I'm just saying that was sort or the norm at the time that you see all shooter abuse with these guys and they're talking about Selma's and shakes and h bombs which was their code for housing the on and GHB was becoming more prominent. There's a lot of recreational drug use mixed in with the visit to the bar and it's probably not a good combination for anybody. No exactly right and I think probably the wrestling business. In general even though we lost so many talents hers hers husband's died sons died fathers died for stupidity for being thinking their bulletproof. Ain't nobody bulletproof folks and if you're one of the and I'm so glad that the businesses does administered more cleaning up. I probably does Soda Society so to Society Atty. I mean what mental illness made myles Garrett. Go nuts I don't know what it was. But here's what normal behavior from the Cleveland. Browns guy starts swinging doing in his helmet around like an idiot but his situation it costing millions of dollars. Because he's he's he's not gonNA plenty more this year exclude his team because his his is temper. But yeah man I saw something. I'm glad the benefits cleaned up from. That was a very tumultuous altemus air and the WWE. We had to clean things up as best we could and somebody's on. Roller is. Yeah but it didn't work now. Bullshit it did work it. Did you work. Because our hiring process chains. The drug testing policies changed and we did. We did. We went from zero to sixty very quickly here so to speak in this. And this re re in rehabilitating our program so I'm glad that we that happened but man we're on a bad bad course and that's what I think. Watch the situation. Was the boys new FUN Games. We're going to be over on the cowboy got in town because he's not gonNa take the bullshit he's not gonNA listen to the excuses. Tell me why we're not drawing and tell me what you're gonNA do about it. Let's keep moving and let's talk about something else that Meltzer's riding at the time I guess we should put a bowl in the shawn. Michaels thing when Sean catches this beating he's the intercontinental champion. But of course he winds up forfeiting the title Dean Douglas and then Razor Ramon would be deemed to win the intercontinental title. That same. I am nine now. That was kind of set up. That didn't do dean. Douglas any favors Shane. Douglas the dean. He's smart guy. talked a lot about his education becoming becoming a doctor. Whatever Blah Blah Blah and all admirable quite frankly But he was not popular in the locker room. The Click didn't like Dean Douglas for whatever reasons somewhere along the way this is somebody's cheerios and so consequently he was he. He was set up to fail seeming to me. We thought all he had he has worked with solid. He had a good run for Paul Heyman. E C W Hit become a really good talker Bible. He'll didn't get the opportunity. I think that he deserved because he was on the quote unquote wrong side of the F.. ING IOL and So he never had a shot he never had a chance so Uh that was the sad said scenario that he was not able to beat Shaw and when the tile right way instead of this. And here's the thing what we're GONNA PROTECT SEAN. But not having you lose real quite frankly does it really make shit at all. These years did did it really matter folks. Did it really matter that Sean didn't and do the job and he and he injuries quote unquote a preventative for defending the title which it was rarely four stipulation at did it really matter after after all these years that boy Sean had lost the title on that Dean Douglas. That would have killed his career. Come on come on the talents of that way to. Oh Man. How am I going to say face because you say faced by learning to fucking work and bust your ass and make it good? How's that it takes three seconds to lose can you? Can you orchestrate a great match and give me three seconds. I'm looking for then. We continue on. Of course you can. If your ego allow a lot of guys ego wouldn't allow it protection. It also showed their muscle to the Oh man because they go the boys secret down the locker room. But I didn't do the job he's going to do it. Okay okay good good now your your senior class. Walking down the hall of the ninth graders big big shots good for you.
