If you were going to pinpoint one thing is the reason. Why the clippers one. What would you say dan first of all. Thanks for having me you know you. You've been my hero and radio favor. So i'm not just saying that. What was your first question. I got all discombobulated happy to be here we on the golf course. Yes i am. Okay all right i. I won't take it too much of your time then. Okay if you're gonna pinpoint what what's the reason. Why the clippers won this game. It was game three when you think about it then it out to historically that game three is always toughest game It's an embarrassing the game if they lose that game. They're not coming back into series. No team has ever come back from three. Oh so you expected them to come out and play like the life was on the lot and that they had to do everything to win the game. So the suns didn't come out with the energy that that matched. what the clippers. Desperation and the clippers won the gang. I'd never thought this would be asleep. Although the sunset one nine in a row you had to feel like they were going to run into a mini wall and that wall happened last night. Devon booker playing with that mask on. I don't know if you've ever played with a mask on but guys will talk about. It's just uncomfortable. And so i. I'm gonna guess that had something to do with a subpar performance but but but how dare you bring that up right because you know historically you know people there. They're very careful with guys. That are very good at certain things. For instance. patrick. Beverley is known as a tremendous defendant. And so after game one did you. Any quotes that devon booker. Whoa out that beverley. You didn't hear any quotes. All you heard was devon booker had a great game. So patrick beverley is protected and so now when patrick mun devon booker struggles everybody says oh fast families and unlike hold up now. It doesn't work that way. What about devon booker was just all because devon booker faces intense defense every night every night. The building their defense to stop him. There's nothing unusual. He's just been off the last two games and he has to get better. yes i think. The mass presented a problem for them but as always said about offense the players and thousand offensive player. Nobody ever stopped me. They made me work harder but they stopped me. I thought my office is overcome their defense. And i think the sons got a little lax last night. I think devon has to really find his creases better Did he did in the first game. And they'll be fine but give the clippers credit. I mean we know defensively. They can turn it up as a team and i thought they did. Energy was there Endeavoring can't say whoa is me. I mean you know this. This thing with the mass. He's gotta find a way to get over it as chris all over his shoulder in the first series against the lakers. I mean you just can't let that bother. You don't think devon is this. he has been off. The last two games could be fatigue could be you know just to lift of the playoffs. And it's run but he'll be fine. I i guarantee you he can he..

Image and likeness is coming to the nc double and division one or any college athletes really are going to be able to capitalize on their image and likeness. They're just trying to figure out how to do it and different read this point. You know different states like they might have different rules. I want to get it all that. Because i think that would be tragic. They have to get it done nationally. It has to be the same rules across the board. So there's no recruiting advantages for schools in certain states. But before we get into that. I just want to ask you in general. What is your feeling as a former great division one player at penn state what is your feeling on name image likeness and maybe just athletes being paid in general at the college level. Name is your name. Your parents gave you that name or whoever loved. You've you your caretaker. Your guardian they gave you that name. Your likeness is you. That's your likeness.

These debts lead the knicks to participate in point shaving or intentionally missing shots in order to get a particular score this way. Their drug dealer could place a bet on that score and because of the players cooperation he was guaranteed to win. It was the players way of paying him. Back drugs also wreaked havoc on the players.

Yeah i'm not like he improved on anything. No not at all. Joe in delaware your nia couple of fox sports radio. What's going on there you can you hear me. I appreciate you guys have me on. So i i think the I think it as big as issue around like whether it's baseball major league baseball. The was that everyone throws a lot harder now. So it's a lot harder. What do you make rates. what do you make it. A spin rates. Those of gone up right spin going up. That comes with arm velocity velocity and and grab that increases the spin rate so hitters have had to adapt more a little bit more damage with less opportunities. It's a lot harder now to string together. Three or four hits in any so they're looking to do a little bit more damage when they make solid contact. I think the only way to level the playing field out is to slightly move that back a little bit. Because i think a little bit more time. That's always been six inches. You know what i'm saying. Joe bat the real nelson and a half feet. I mean that's a major change. Yeah it it'd be. chris. And i don't think that they would be open to that. I'm dead serious.

Chicago's homicide rate decreases for the third straight year
"Three years ago Chicago saw a record number of shootings in two thousand sixteen more than four thousand people shot more than seven hundred fifty killed. That was the most the city had seen in two decades. Both Chicago in two thousand nineteen on a more hopeful note. Preliminary number I show a steep drop in shootings and homicides. WBZ reporter Patrick Smith has been following the stats and updates us on the new numbers and puts it all in perspective breath so there were four hundred and ninety two people murdered in Chicago so we talk about progress but still almost five hundred people murdered there. Were Twenty six hundred shooting victims terms and about twenty one hundred shooting incidents so that you know they're incidents where more than one person is shot so twenty six hundred people shot four hundred. Ninety people murdered both all of those numbers though are are better than than last year. I'm put that in context for us when we look at the past few years. Two thousand eighteen two thousand seventeen and then of course that big jump in two thousand sixteen right exactly so twenty twenty sixteen we had this historic increase. Since then. We've been coming down this year's numbers it's about ten the shootings down about ten percent compared to last year the doubt about thirty thirty five percent compared to two thousand sixteen so we are were were just about back to where we were before that two thousand sixteen spike in violence so that's the macro macro level but when we look at the neighborhood level and where we're seeing significant changes. What can you tell us about that? Well you're going to hear me say this a lot which is like comparing things to twenty sixteen and looking at that. Because we're we're seeing the biggest decreases on the west side of Chicago like The Austin Police District which covers most of the neighborhood of Austin on on the west side that had an almost twenty percent reduction in murders last year for twenty nine eighteen the other westside neighborhoods west areas had thirteen fifteen percent reduction then shootings the west side is what got hit the hardest in two thousand sixteen. It's where the violence was the worst in two thousand sixteen end for the first couple years after that twenty seventeen two thousand eighteen. Even there was some sort of stubborn violence levels. Were still remarkably high and some of those areas so we saw the biggest reduction on the west side their parts of the south side that also had reductions most of the south side and the north side had reductions in violence although there are a few neighborhoods that are still suffering. You know well not just all. There are many neighbors the city that are suffering from violence still but most of the the city saw. Sr Reduction in shootings here Turley back the interim superintendent of CD. How a New Year's Eve press conference releasing the numbers and here's what he had to say about why he? I thought this was happening. Some of the things that have allowed us to to make these reductions I've talked about Particularly our partnerships with faith based community and our partnerships with street outreach workers workers and our partnerships with community based organizations those are really important but also technology has aided Chicago PD okay so he's talking about partnerships and technology starting with the partnerships. What do we know about how? CD's approaching community in the shootings. Well one thing we know is that this this year You Know Actually Mayor Emanuel created it but then now mayor lightfoot invested more in the city's Office of gun violence prevention people are calling for her to do to invest a lot more money anything then what she has to sort of get us on par with New York and Los Angeles. But that's this office that suppose to give a comprehensive approach gun violence prevention. So it's not just about policing you know there was a lot of philanthropic dollars that went into gang outreach street outreach after two thousand sixteen and we actually heard you know I heard from Eddie Bocanegra. Who Works for Heart Lennon runs this outreach program called ready Chicago that that works with people who are closest to gun violence? He gave a lot of credit to two former Chicago. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. WHO said that He? We really worked really closely with street. Outreach workers that there were district level commanders who worked with them at and coordinated with them and that it wasn't all you know police in law and order. I obviously the police are there to maintain law and order but that they knew that there were better and maybe other ways to approach gun violence besides just just going as hard as you could it at people when you say street outreach. What does that actually mean? So that that's a really good question so there are kind of different versions of that the sort of the version that maybe people are most familiar with. Is something like ceasefire. cease-fire what's called cure violence now where you have people who are former gang members people who are close to gang members who go out and just mediate conflicts and try to prevent people from shooting shooting at one another another Eddie Bocanegra who. I just mentioned. He used to do that. What he says what they're doing now and there are a few different organizations? That are doing this. You're just outreaching to say. Hey don't shoot each other you're saying don't shoot each other and we'd like to give you a job or we'd like to get you some therapy or we'd like to give you something we're not just saying don't shoot we're saying here's an alternative and so there has been more investment in that from from the private sector from philanthropic groups in the last few years. What's really but people have been pushing for the city to start investing more and paying for that to happen and so that you can give give people an outlet in an alternative to to you know violent crime so we hurt the interim superintendent they are also talking about technology? What role is stop playing? Yeah so that's something like the police in the last few years or put something called shot. Spotter which is supposed to use sound to detect. When there's been a shooting so they don't have to wait for nine one one call so police can can respond more quickly to them? There's also they've got more cameras that they've got these strategic support centers in the districts. That's supposed to combine all the different tech- technological the logical options. They have to sort of make response quicker and get more street level information to the police. You know that's something that University of Chicago really helped pilot. They've done research. It is their program program. But they've done research on their own program to say that they saw reductions in the district where they put that technology in their Beyond that you know. We have more police officers than we did. A few years ago there was this is pushed one thousand more police officers under Mayor Emanuel. That happened And then I think one thing that Charlie Beck is not going to talk about is just regression to the mean. Statistically we we had this huge spike horrific by two thousand sixteen were You know statistician might tell you that we're just sort of coming back to normal. I think the big question is going to be are. Are these reductions things where we can keep making progress and actually get back. Get back to a better place get better than we were before. Two Thousand Sixteen rather than just sort of getting back to what is honestly an unacceptable level level of violence five hundred murders a year. No one's going to tell you that. That's okay so we're we're we're back down about five hundred. The question is can we take that next step and actually see real reductions and not. Just get back to where we were before two thousand sixteen and put these numbers into context when we look at other big cities like New York or La. Well New York had a slight increase in its murders this year. La I believe leave state about flat. We still have a lot more murders here in Chicago Than New York and Los Angeles. It used to be that we had more murders than New York. Combine that's not exactly true. That's not quite true this year however they had If you put them together there at about five hundred fifty murders for this year they have millions and millions more people in New York in Los Angeles so as far as murder rate were nowhere near them we had about you know we had about fifty fewer murders in Chicago than New York and Los Angeles together so these are just preliminary numbers we should say a The official figures will come out after the FBI does their audit. How much of a change could we see between the numbers that are being reported right now by C. p. d. and the numbers that come from the FBI not a huge change For Murders for instance you know I think in two thousand seventeen the changes about seven murders from from when they preliminary members to what they actually sent to the FBI. So you'll see that change. I mean sadly that that some of that has to do with a person who shot on December thirtieth and then dies a few days later and that changes inches from shoot a shooting incident to a murder. Obviously all of this is very tragic. So you'll see some changes in the numbers but nothing that's going to throw off these percentages or the big picture takeaways Geico as well in a press conference earlier this week Interim Chicago Police Superintendent Charlie back and we have to stress here he is interim he. He's made very clear that he's not interested the permanent job but he laid out what he hopes to achieve while he is in office. What did he say? Well one thing that I thought was really interesting. He spent a lot of time talking about clearance rates. You know this is how detectives detectives do solving murders and he said that the CPT had a fifty three percent clearance rate this year. That's the highest. It's been in nine years you should look at. WBZ's chip Mitchell's is reporting to to see sort of diving into those numbers more. Not not this year but in the past of how they calculate those clearance rates. I won't get into it but it doesn't mean that they solve half of the murders that happen this year either way. It's great if they're at a nine year high. There was a report that came out earlier this year that really criticized the the detective division homicide Detective Division Chicago. Charlie Charlie back said he's going to be implementing things that were recommended there. I think that that's a big priority for him for his time. Here is getting our detectives to get to a better solve rate solving thing. More murders which increases trust in in in the department among residents and hopefully prevents future violence. So we have to again remind people that CBD's operating under a consent consent decree right now. Charlie Beck let the LAPD through its own consent decree at least part of it. How much power will he have to? Maybe implement some of the changes that are recommended in that decree. Well I think he has a lot of power of making it clear whether or not it's a priority and I wanna be clear that that what I've heard from people is that Eddie Johnson the former superintendent. This was a priority for him. Two people did believe that he truly believed in the changes but there are also problems where they said. There's not enough resources to this. Not everyone in the department is totally buying in. I think Charlie back with with the experience that he has might know what resources are needed to to get a higher level of compliance with the consent decree and make that a priority. I certainly heard from people who were hopeful about him. As interim because of his experience in Los Angeles as you mentioned that he'll make consent decree compliance a real priority of his interim administration and really quickly any word on the search for a permanent superintendent for CD. I have not heard any word. I mean the the applications I believe are due by the end of this week. Maybe next week I I expect that the police board will Abbas recommendations by March or April that's WBZ criminal justice reporter Patrick Smith Patrick. Thanks
"eddie johnson" Discussed on WGN Radio
"Forty six on WGN was taken a few minutes here just to visit with and all the men on the Chicago city council we're talking about Michelle Smith in the forty third ward not just about the lobbying rules and regulations that their their their past they've passed but also I wanted to ask you about the superintendent Eddie Johnson before we do all of that the Michelle you said this is the first time that the Chicago city council has had some sort of ethics oversight committee is that right that's correct it was just formed when likely ministration came in and I'm the chair of it and it's a real honor to do it I'm a former federal prosecutor and I've worked on ethics issues my entire term and it's great that there is the infamous impetus for change now you agree with the way the mayor's handle that he Johnson and his dismissal yes do you think that it's been a fair process for him yes I would say from my shared experience we need to turn his office I recognized exactly how she felt you know when you're working with someone usually witnesses we don't like surprises and we don't like not being able to deal with the facts as they really are so I think had the superintendent leveled from the beginning of what had really happened that day I'm sure that I'm sure that none of this is happening now what happens yeah yeah I I guess it's hard to say that when asked about that mayor life with said that she said on this radio station a couple of days ago that it was the action not the live but the line made it worse but even if he had been truthful she it sounds like would have asked him for his dismissal either way well easterly big I I don't know if he would have been allowed to just retire at that moment and resign up but when you if you know when you work with someone in a in a position of trust the person who trusted you is terrorist when you reach it I understand it if it spills over yeah and that's really that that is the problem that we have when we are expected to participate in someone else's embarrassment or improper conduct or you know especially from a position of trust as an elected official do you know what exactly what happened have you seen the video or you privy to what exactly how old no no I'm very sorry that I guess I found in the Tribune today that you know somebody might work for thirty years for the people of Chicago and then had his worst day ever and maybe it's not that's why I use the word fair and Eric kind of acylated on this point he's taking a side that but maybe it's not fair to judge Eddie Johnson by his worst today his worst moment in fact I don't I I wouldn't judge and on the basis of that however he has to he has to step down I mean I I wouldn't I would not catch his career as a base that the plastic thank you he yeah hi good to police superintendent in many many ways but this is not well I think people concluded it was time for him to retire because of health issues and a lot of other things minutes sorry it had to it's too bad it had to end this way but I don't think he will be judged this is a final on its final a moment and that's really up to the public the media everybody else the question is are we obligated to cover it up that's my question are we obligated to cover it up when a when a person does something stupid well you tell me it in today's culture that is what we do and whether we should begin well I guess it depends on what the it is right so if if it's the person he was having a drink with this may be a fault more the media's than the mayors she tried to bury that point but I don't think it's any of our business who he was having a drink with if if he's lying about being inebriated or for that matter if the police officers gave them the past then you've got a couple of issues for us all to deal with their if it's ten fifty one and your suffering from it was sounds like a cough Michelle is that correct no one little this one little Cup okay because I've got a little bit of that and I thought I don't want to keep you any longer than you can but I wondered if you just had a minute about the marijuana retail points are going to have at the first of the year and some of the rules and regulations about where you can where you can't smoke what what do you see coming down the road on that I think that where we are right now is it is a good place you know we've taken a how many got the long against smoking in public places the point of well gave incorrect smokers there you you know when yeah and of course people aren't smokers don't even like is that right yet the walk that he's the smoke as you are as you are walking down the cost we become more more aware of the help with that so no one is eight one that is still technically illegal in the United States my we have one here is still you know it's gonna have a national consensus on so I think it is fair to say you know your own business in a company known home and no don't let the people well it wouldn't take I I am personally comfortable about marijuana I am a generation with a lot of people with them I thought and plantations by the artist so I and alcohol right so we have to be very careful about how this kind of institutions are licensed and it's going to happen so we're going to be very careful when we when we come to the point of having a license I think it's going to be very interesting when the Chicago police have to sort of in for some of these laws the story in the paper this morning Chicago cops are being encouraged to explain the new law to residents caught violating it rather than take punitive measures right away particularly in the initial months but the law will define a public place and you cannot be seen smoking marijuana in a public place as anywhere where a person could reasonably be expected to be observed by others that means you can get high in the park or in the school you can't be walking down the sidewalk and getting high on the street the police department will issue citations to users on private porches balconies or backyards that can be seen by neighbors are passers by and I just think that's going to be a whole world of trouble for the police if they're going to China for something like that I will have to the goal line so what you've described except for the private porches went to the movies after drinking the public way you are not allowed to drink in public not allowed to drink in our parks or beaches and please know how don't force that right I mean some people use their discretion from Dublin on yeah right sometimes they take it the I know that they're interested so I think that there is a local police discretion and I think that's actually very advanced policing but the one yeah right when they see the tickets right away just say Hey next time Middleton come March we're not going to be so nice about it January first maybe we'll give you a pass that's correct I think that that actually responsible policing and leading people to have a lot of notice you know mine you know all this stuff having the police tell you that it was that you kind of get no warning the first time you no hold over her traffic stop and you want to move the ball looks like I'm new around here well okay I have always used discretion often robbery sometimes not only main question I called a moderate the police officers alderman Michelle Smith's from the forty third ward I'm not really glad that they have that committee sounds like you're the right person to chair it it's.

And Rahm does not seem very happy unwavering in their belief that he is extremely guilty and infuriates that he's not owning up to it. But any varius as rhyme and not putting any blame on the state's attorney's office. When asked he kept saying, this is just a small let who did this. It's you know, how can you not be mad at the state's attorney's office. You're at a graduation, for God's sakes, the handling of it is very closed doors. He will definitely. Allow discussion. What was so interesting about obviously. Now, we're seeing the other side of this as much as we're going to see at this point. Because he said, you know, the case is sealed you're not going to get the information is it sealed. Why do they cases to good question? I forgot to ask which link off that. But you know, what's so interesting is that when mayor Emanuel talked about the shepherd laws and everything else going on in this country. You can see that this case is just taken to another level. That's why it's a national story. You know, everything going on in this country right now with hate crime. It's just you know, he said biz because you have a little influence and wealth that you can get away with things. And now, it's you know, what happens to the next person who doesn't have the resources that. Jesse smell. That has the terrible disadvantage, obviously isn't using allegedly using the evidence. Yup. For further Bill, don't get it. I don't get how this could have been overturned getting back something you just said about why it's such a big story. I know that here in Chicago because it's happening here Kogyo all the TV stations. Most of the radio stations talk stations. That's the focus is do you think this is getting as much press, Nick? CNN they were carrying it live. It's all done. Our ABC news call which goes to, you know, every radio station in this end, the appeal hear appeals a strange word. But the reason that it is. So magnetic is because of what you just said, unfortunately, I don't I'm glad that mayor emanuel's getting that point out because the reason it is getting so much play. Hollywood actor, right? And because it's highly unusual that completely turns around like rice in an emergency situation like at the drop of a hat. You know, there's so many of the texts early on as the story was breaking a few short hours ago were well, of course, he's going to get his way, he's rich he's powerfully successfully famous. That's kind of turning out to be true. Isn't it as the day plays on? And appears that way. And I question this not to disagree with you. But just because I'm so completely confused. Yes. He has great attorneys, but there's also a legal system that you have to adhere to. And it's not like the Chicago police department is letting him go. Was saying that, you know grand jury. Indicted him on sixteen council grand juries a little bit of that evidence. Indicted him on sixteen counts. And you don't forget that. You know, the FBI is still also investigating that letter that he received. There wasn't much mention about that. No. So the end a little bit ROY manual at the very end brought that back in the play. Right. So there is a possibility that he didn't write that either. He didn't. Wait and seizes says, but heading they already proved that it was his handwriting, and that he was responsible or my imagining sure. I sure about what was proved and I know that he hasn't been charged. On the ladder the FBI because that's male fry is fat. All right. We have to ramp up. I want you to ponder something tonight. And if you have a quick answer feel free, but what aside from the fact that he's not going to go to jail. What good is this to him? I believe well, he's. Itself. And it's still still don't believe them. And now, I almost feel like they're mad at him for finding a way out of it. Is empire gonna hire them back doubt, it well, you I mean from a legal standpoint, he's no longer guilty of the charges. So so if they didn't hire them he could almost almost go back to them for saying, you raise that he apparently this guy when the freedom to do whatever he wants now for I just don't get it of innocent until proven guilty. He was he was indicted. Yeah, we all thought he was it seemed it seemed clear cut, but it wasn't cloud charges. Charge. But now he's clean slate clean slate. But you know, what I knew nickname thing is. He has live with himself. And the fact that he said, he wouldn't be his mother, son. If he was that was interesting. Him you guys? I believe anyone to Wendy. We just saw the other side now. And but we don't know, right. You're never going to know. You're never going to be able to make a determination speech that each person and may remain. You'll make was that kind of in line with what you thought you'd hear from them today. Or was that a surprise? I it's in line with mayor. Mayor Emanuel said I expected superintendent Johnson to be angrier. Both of them I expected to be. I mean mayor Rahm Emanuel really you could see that they were not pleased with part of this. I expected him Eddie Johnson was just so passionate the first time. Yeah. Stood up for the city. Yeah.

"Eddie Johnson says the murders in the windy city are down by thirty percent. That's equivalent to throwing a deckchair from the Queen Mary to make it lighter. He also added the shootings were down seventeen percent compared to this time last year. Well, it's been a very cold winter in Chicago this year, wait to the weather warms up violence kick up again, why is nothing being done about the violence in the windy city. Really is it because most of it occurs on the city's south side, which is minority dominated. They've been many mayors, including Obama's main man Rahm Emanuel who promised to clean up the city, but none of done anything worth mentioning the federal government should get involved. They need the marines and south Chicago and either shoot or arrest every gang member insight. Don't laugh, Los Angeles. You have your shares. Well, I'm jed web. And that's how I see it. Yeah. It's ridiculous. The Chicago, particularly because I was reading statistics that the number of murders in Chicago last year were more than New York City and L A combined. Those are two cities that are larger than Chicago. And yet Chicago had more murders than those two combined. Boy, those antigun laws really work. Didn't he? Past them, otherwise, and that wouldn't have happened New York some of the most stringent laws when it comes to guns. Oh, yeah. And I see I saw somewhere else here where another group is planning to try to ban guns. But I'm saying that's so stupid when they do that. Basically what they're saying is we only want bad people to have guns. We do not want. Good people having guns, just the bad people can have them. And that's the way that goes. Because if you ban them only law-abiding citizens will obey the law and not yet guns, but the bad people are still going to get them. You think those things are stupid? You think if they ban on anything law-abiding citizens are going to just give up their guns? I don't well. If they try to confiscate guns. That's probably not going to happen. They're going to be a lot of people. Nobody's giving their take them. I read about a police chief had said in some town where they're going to try to confiscate guns. He said. He'll go to jail before you'll participate in anything like that. And but it's just the stupidity of these gun laws, which again, they're saying, okay. All you. Good people. Give up your guns, you bad people. Keep yours because you are lawbreakers. And that means you're not going to obey the law when it comes to guns. And we see that's exactly what happens in Chicago where they have the some of the strictest gun laws in the country. It's eight fifteen on a m Tampa Bay we go to the newsroom down, Chris shrink, man.

"Michael Bauer joins us live on Michael. Is there any way to get your finger on the? Pulse of Chicago this morning. Other than the confusion and knowing that it exists. I don't have anything else. I mean, when you've got the mayor of Chicago going, I don't understand what's happening here that this is a whitewash of Justice. I think that kind of speaks for all of us when we take a look at why and how sixteen charges against empire actor Jesse small at we're just dropped out of thin air yesterday. He there have been charges against him. Filing. Police reports false police reports as well as hate crime hoax. And then there's strangely enough. An emergency court hearing to comes out of no place that happens to be the time when small that's right there. So he can be there for the court hearing. And then in that court hearing state prosecutors dropped all of those charges expunge his record. And then seal the case what how does that happen? And how do we not get any answers to our questions? Like, we're we're left to hear from the attorneys and the prosecutors involved in both of them are saying the same thing that small at did not strike deal. There was nobody who made any kind of a call to call in any favors and get things done for small that apparently. Prosecutors didn't feel like they had the ability to prosecute this case the way they wanted to. So they dropped the charges and small at four fitted his ten thousand dollar bond voluntarily in addition to served time. I think it was somewhere around thirteen hours or something that he served volunteering over a weekend. And somehow that's enough that's enough to get through all of this and for him to walk away and proclaim his innocence. Even after you had Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson the day small with arrested looking as if he was giving the opening statements in the Jesse small adhering because he had so much evidence. So much proof so much belief into the background of this situation. But now that this case has been sealed, we're all left to speculate, and we're left with questions here. Joel it's one of those things though, you feel like other than what just happened yesterday. You feel like listening to Eddie Johnson talk be no people in the know the brothers that were hired to do it. You know, the videotape which shows them inner doing I mean, he did interviews for like a half an hour with that noose around. His neck. I don't know anybody that would leave that where it was. So I mean, I feel like I know what happened and nobody's denying. That's what happened. What I don't get is why they pull the charges. I mean, I feel like I know the whole story. I know why it happened. I know all of it. But I do not know why we got to where we are today. Right. And then how are we at a place where small that is still proclaiming that? It was these two white guys in mega that had this all he's sticking to that story because we've heard so many different things that all seem spot on prior to that and involving these charges that how can we go back and go, oh, well that must have been right, then 'cause we don't know that we've got a lot of questions about that. And it would seem as though I mean, if you want to just look at it from a prosecutorial stance is there a lack of evidence could they not find evidence that small orchestrated the attack or not enough to feel like they actually built up a case. Or is this a situation where because we had that police superintendent getting out there in front of the cameras the day, he was arrested. Then maybe prosecutors feel like they put the prosecutors in a difficult situation. By trying your case in the court of public opinion. And that that might have been an overstep from the Chicago PD or maybe those brothers. You're talking about the thirty five hundred dollars in a check from small lead. Maybe they did not have a plea agreement or didn't have an immunity deal or maybe they were recanting and that they weren't going to testify any of that certainly would have hurt the prosecution's case. But we're not hearing any of that. Nobody's giving us those details, and that's all sealed up in this case. That's the thing. Once it sealed. I mean, I don't think it keeps people from speculating about it. But it is curious no doubt about it. Michael, thanks for the update. Michael Bauer on NewsRadio six ten W T V.

Hey grand jury could not have been clear you cannot have because of a person's position one set of rules apply to them. Another set of rules apply to everybody else. In another way, you're seeing this play out universities pay extra to get their kids, especially position in universities.

"Here in Chicago. I heard him being interviewed on another show talking about just expressing the outrage that so much of Chicago police departments resources were us to to find this is I thought it was amazing police work to from a grainy images with with inaccurate description of who they were for them to find these guys it shows us what they can do in Chicago while we have less than a twenty percent clearest rate on the murders in Chicago. But I don't know if you were listening yesterday Andrei was it yesterday. When Eddie Johnson said this wasn't treated any way special because he's a celebrity, but this is how they treat hate crimes. And so I say, let's call all the crimes tocado hate crimes. And then they'll solve them as fast they solve this one. Welcome to the Stephanie trussell show. Hi, how you doing? I wanna say Hello to the radio audience. You know, I'm glad to be on your show. Thank you so much, and I think you for driving a teaching to the south and west side of Chicago in the black community. Yes, we're treated unfair. We don't have the resources are Campbell that I- communities don't work when it comes down to downtown and the white rich folks work baked ham was work when the table to Jesse or empire any other routes courses, they get resources they climb up on the blacks in in the south side of Chicago on the west side. We have people that for nine years. Spoke to detective we are told that they don't have enough detectors, but we've seen the difference. When it came to this Jesse store where Eddie Johnson said none of the police officers who were taking off their regular rotation. This is just the normal routine for hate crime. So we I've heard as many as twelve or thirteen detectives assigned to this and somebody even said twenty four right? I've heard twenty four as well. That's unbelievable. When you follow the crime in Chicago, the daily violence, and you see those faces and those names, and they do stats on so many different pages using about all those people their family members are still waiting for any kind of solution and is unacceptable again with less than twenty percent of the murders being solved in Chicago. How can they explain how they were able to use their resources to bring these two gentlemen, who who basically innocent people that were paid to do whatever I I wouldn't say innocent they were all part of this big scam. So is there another there's talk of a class action suit any any news on is that accurate is that just a rumor? Well, actually since I've been on the radio on TV. My phone's been flooded with people that have not spoke to detective says they let one has been murdered in the streets of Chicago five years six years twelve years and nine and so on a song, and I believe that that's a form of discrimination. You know, because as you have you seen with your own eyes. They saw Jesse case in two weeks. You seen anything happened up downtown that takes us up, but all the black the black community as you said, the the raise less than twenty percents. So yes, I see a form of discrimination. We doing our homework, and we're gonna see if we can file a class action lawsuit discrimination, Andre Smith, exude your pope. How you doing question? What did you think about this case when you first heard of it, did you believe Jesse smaller or not? No, I didn't believe him. I mean, but, you know, did you think that it was outrageous? Okay. So what was that? If you thought it was outrageous. You didn't believe him. Don't you think that this case was really easy to solve the evidence? Quick to be gathered that there really wasn't must resources needs to be thrown behind this. Because this is the easy case to saw it doesn't necessarily take take take from the more serious issues in the city of Chicago. Okay. I disagree with taking away because I need to occupy the same space. So when you take twenty four detectors in the city of Chicago, and you're told her the south side in the west side that we don't have enough detectors to sign these murders. Then they're taking away. Whether you want to say that's for burglary or whatever detective with a detective. All right. That's true. What is the footage? The data to show that. Who disposed to detect who assigned again? In that area to make sure that this case was followed along with any other particular case in the city, Chicago, you think you're a suit would accomplish something like that. Well, you know. Open up their show that the detective division is a racist division. Andre. This is Charles love. I have a question. So. I'm really solutions based on things. So you say you mentioned cameras and the resources both detect a number of detectives and all that. So do you think if we had more detectives and working cameras, would you do you think that that would have a major impact to the closure of murder cases? Or is it something else? I've been in the streets working all crying for twenty seven years right now today, you can shoot a gun in your basement. They got that sound that will let them know. Exactly. What you're whether you're in the basement, whether you an alley whether you're on the front of that himself in west side is it on the west side. Okay. All right. So on ask yourself so to solve this. What what do you say we need? Let's get to the bottom of that. We need transparency. We need the same thing. The same type of service in the white rich folks good we need on the south side in the west side and the black community. Okay. I know you're running for alderman. I'm not familiar. Where's the twentieth word? What are the boundaries the twentieth? Award is Washington Inglewood new city, backer yards and greater Grand Cross. It goes from Stony fifty sixty four up to sixty nine down fifty fill all wheel to forty seven awards. So you Inglewood was included as one of the neighborhoods. We hear lot Lonsdale Inglewood and Roseling other big ones and Austin where we have all these crimes. So you aren't speaking from a person, that's that's dealing with these issues. I'm sure out on the campaign trail, that's one of the things that people are talking about they wanna feel they want what everybody in America wants. They wanna feel safe in their homes. They grew up there and the history and may not necessarily want to flee. And so they're looking for if somebody gets caught. Something bad or someone is to be able to catch them in the first place. Not only the murderers, but everything that's going on between gun crimes and people. Just standing on the corner making it hard for them just to go to and from school. So I know that's a big issue. I'm not sure of the of the details of what's happening in your race. As far as the incumbent and what's happening and why you decided to jump in. But I'm certainly I was taking by the fact that you were so honest about what's happening, and this unfortunate that that is to tell the truth cities all over again, we see that in how people are living the quality of schools. And now we see and how quickly they can solve a crime and with very little information. And even the person giving them intentionally wrong information, they were still able to bring those two guys to Justice so to speak so lead, everybody's your website and good luck to you on Tuesday.

If she's so concerned about that. Saying that about Bernie Sanders. Oh, three mansions that he owns and he apparently makes a million dollars a year. He takes in what's stopping him from opening up his mansions to homeless people. What's that? I mean. No. But it it.

Bring eliminate fossil fuels. Okay. So we're not gonna have rocket fuel jet. Fuel diesel fuel for tanks. I don't think he was getting impressed with the solar powered submarine. So how how what's your take on America's sovereignty? How are we supposed to keep talking about another? But this arming America unilaterally. It's always been a part of the leftist ideal. You know, they think that America again, we're pillaging the planet for profit. And we're warmongers when we have literally sacrificed more for the safety security liberties and freedoms of people around the globe and asked nothing in return, except occasionally a plot to bury our brave soldiers. Some believable their mindset Hedo in this day and age, everyone needs a home security system. And I know many of you home security system nightmare stories. Well, the great story of simply safe is they have taken away. Everything that everybody kinda justifiably hates about the home security business. That means oh, they're not putting holes in your walls to install it, massive installation fees. You don't have long term contracts to sign at like fifty bucks a month. And it is the latest greatest best technology bar, none. They have transformed the entire home security business. Now, you gotta understand some interesting statistics because you know, what security systems deter burglars. In fact, there's still a burglary every eight seconds in America. Well, think about it. You think Burgos, give up does become some houses have security systems. They don't they.

But if you were going to rob somebody they have all these stock cats, including a sack cat that has the cutouts for the eyes and the mouth, and then they have to red hat's right there on the counter. The rope is right there. This is crazy, and they're just standing there talking to looking at their phones and just you know, hanging out Chilin. I mean, clearly, they're not, you know, there's there's they're not nervous about anything at all. And to make it even crazier he paid them with a check. He gave them a check. Check he paid them with a check. Like he signed his name on it three thousand five hundred dollars. He paid them with a check. That's according to Chicago police superintendent, Eddie Johnson. So he turned himself in today. He's going to appear in court later today. Yeah. I mean, I and that's gonna come up here. Just a little bit. They have the phone records where it says it showed that he spoke with him an hour before and an hour after the attack. And he apparently spoke with them while they were in Nigeria for the two weeks after the attack. And so that's when they were they were arrested when they when they came back to the United States. And then I guess that's when he realized what does he was he really going to testify against them in court knowing that he hired him. Oh my gosh. So that's I just a man. And apparently so his motive according to local media in Chicago who've been who've by the way, they've done such a great job with this because they treated it like a local crime story that has national appeal and they've really done their due diligence. But the report is that he was quote dissatisfied with his salary on empire. You look you just turned into a question, Mark cane? Yeah. He was dissatisfied with his salary. Yeah. My first question would be what in the world with this staged event done to improve his salary. Somebody needs to drop the breadcrumbs and lead me along that path. Just look at capper, Nick. Kaepernick got a damn Nike deal. Bye bye plainy victim. True. He played a victim didn't stage anything. Now, this my thing is he thought that staging this would somehow lead to the increase in salary for me. I'm just full of questions. I'm not sure how it's possible. Yeah. He. He was he wanted more salary apparently. And so that's why he did it. So he's charged for violent at. So I mean, this is a felony. He's charged with a felony. It's called felony. What did they say disorderly conduct? But you have to understand that in that that charge also considered part of that charges. Filing a false report. And it can either be a class for a class three felony. And his case, I think is a class four felony. So he's looking at jail time and massive fines, but he's looking at jail time. And I think that the maximum penalties should be levied here. Because see this guy is acting like he's attacked. Meanwhile, earlier today, I watched a video of a conservative student getting his ass be UC Berkeley and had his nose busted broken. You can hear the crunch of the bone in his nose on video by a progressive.

And then yesterday evening there was another video of somebody being assaulted because they were wearing a red hat. Meanwhile, that stuff is not getting discussed, but this guy stages a fake hate crime. And then you have people like Cory Booker who tweets this kind of ridiculousness out. He tweeted and this and it's still up. He tweeted this on January twenty ninth, quote, the vicious attack on actor jussie smollet was an an attempted modern day lynching..
