"Is happening in arizona. There are a bunch of different threads that they're following and they're waiting for things to drop. Basically been collins covers disinformation extremism and the internet for nbc news. Ben thank you so much. Thank you if you think kids are playing too. Many video games will so just the chinese government. It's limited online gaming to three hours per week for anyone under eighteen and now beijing is also slowing approvals for online games to fight what it considers addiction. It's all part of a broader strategy by the communist party to manage family life and the tech industry for more. We have npr's. Emily thing in shanghai and emily gives us a picture of gaming in china. I've been there you live there. It's hard to explain the people far away. How pervasive this is. You probably remember from your time in china that people. Even if years ago were already addicted to their mobile phones. They're always swiping prodding playing mobile game sometimes even while driving. So it's prevalent in all age groups but it's also really frustrated parents because they see children who are distracted who are not going to class and concentrating on their education. And so that's impart. What prompted this video game ban. Yeah and can you tell us a little bit more about what seems to be beijing's motivation here as far as this broader social goal. I mean i've heard you know in my time there in your time there. There's often talk about spiritual pollution and that kind of propaganda but what's your sense of the real Social go here. Part of it is curbing this real problem. We have this in the us where people are addicted to social media the internet. It's the same in china. Only in china. They've taken much mortar. Coney in measures. They're already limits. On what kind of games. People of a certain age could play now. They're taking that to more of an extreme by asking people to register for all mobile games and gaming with their identification. And if you're under the age of eighteen as you mentioned you can only play between the times of eight. Pm and nine pm one hour a day and you can play for one extra hour on holidays so beijing has not only redirected the attention of the future workers their future citizens but they also have kind of kneecap some of the Very very powerful tech firms that have been accruing a lot of money through through selling these Sometimes violence sometimes slightly lewd games to teenagers in. This rule comes amid other big moves. The government has also gone after private tutoring companies. Trying to a narrow airspace and the economy another gigantic industry in china. Where most chinese parents either pay for tutoring for their child or want to so when you kind put these together. What's the broader idea. Here of what central government is is is seeking its regulating culture as you know mushy and conceptual as culture can be so. In addition to video games. Private education has undergone some major reforms. Private education was hyper competitive because chinese parents really value education so they were willing to pay a lot of extra money for after school tutoring and after school classes but that exacerbated social inequality because it was only families who could pay who got the best education so this summer china's education ministry started limiting that kind of private tutoring they made all private education companies nonprofits and just one sweep and they're strictly enforcing these bands on after school classes going so far as to arrest and find people who are secretly hiring tutors again just like the game then it hurts a lot of people because it puts them out of work but parents for the most part. Support these rules because they're also exhausted trying to get their kids not to play video games and they're tired of how competitive and expensive education had become but wealthier parents who benefited from the system. Who were willing to shell out for a three hundred dollar an hour tutor after school. They're now scrambling to find ways to cover their tracks to continue that kind of elite access to the best teachers and they will find ways If they have the resources so in the end people who are wealthy will still continue to pull ahead but the parties idea is that that inequality at least won't be as extreme as it was before emily. This is being billed under the umbrella of common prosperity. What does that actually mean. It's a good question because it's not entirely clear on the surface. It appears that the communist party is trained to return to its original socialist michigan of providing a good standard of living and equal access to all of its citizens unfortunately china. These days has become a highly unequal place. And so there's an idea that all of these particularly private companies got really rich and china's opening and reform that these private firms owe much of their success to the chinese communist party. And so now it's time for these companies to give back to society and to help trying to become a more equal wealthy place number of companies have seemingly volunteered to give huge donations to charity companies. Like ten send alibaba. Pindar dwar this e commerce company. But we're not sure how that money is going to be used jo-john province historically one of china's wealthiest has set up what it calls a common prosperity model zone that from the brief government. Descriptions makes it sound like it will be some kind of pilot for socialist paradise. So when i'm looking for is some more details about what policies will be in place to find. Common prosperity means doesn't mean more government regulation so that companies can't run away with prophets doesn't mean much more government surveillance over day to day life or it doesn't mean vast redistribution perhaps even income or property tax. Which is something that's long been debated but never implemented in china that is. Npr's beijing correspondent. Emily thing in this case joining us from shanghai. Emily thanks as always thank scott on capitol hill this week. Democratic leaders are trying to unite around a massive spending bill to fund president biden's priorities their billing as the largest remaking of the social safety net since the new deal. Republicans are campaigning against it. They say inflation fears and backlash against trillions. More in federal spending could help them win back control of congress in twenty twenty two. Npr's acting congressional correspondent deirdre walsh reports on the gop strategy. President biden isn't on the ballot in next year's midterms but republicans say his handling of the economy will be biden's himself is keeping the issue front and center khaindrava. Our first job was a stopped the economic bleed and it was the worst bleeding sense roosevelt..

"You are i'm tanya bosley. I'm scott tong. It's here and now two years ago in aurora colorado twenty-three-year-old blackman. Elijah mclean died in police. Custody after he was put in a chokehold and injected with a powerful sedative now a new state report finds that aurora police and fire rescue have routinely violated state and federal law. Here's colorado attorney. General phill wiser. These actions are unacceptable. They hurt the people. That law enforcement is entrusted to protect and they destroy community trust. Now we have allison sherry justice reporter with colorado public radio. Allison what did we learn in this report about who tends to get arrested. In aurora and what forces used yes so in a state investigators found that aurora. Police has engaged in racially biased policing and used inappropriate force against residents for the last five or so years. And i have some numbers here. I'll go through quick later. Found that use of force against people of color was used almost two point five times more than whites based on their relative percentage of the population and nearly half of the people whom they used force against where black even though black residents make up about fifteen percent of the population. The other thing that they this report found is that aurora police arrested people of color one point three times more than white space from the population. Well i mean. Those numbers are are striking. I look quickly at this report. Which is pretty comprehensive. It also goes into a paramedics. We know that in elijah mcclain's case paramedics injected him with ketamine sedative. The autopsy was inconclusive as far as he died. But but what does this report. Say about the illegal use of ketamine by first responders. Yeah yes because men. Because of mclean's death the agency is halted its ketamine use but investigators found that in the year before that paramedics administered ketamine twenty two times for this condition called excited delirium and in more than half of those incidents. Paramedics failed to follow ketamine monitoring protocols. Like watching someone's heart rate watching their breathing. After the gave him the sedative. Investigators also found and this happened with elijah mclean. They administered ketamine at times at doses. Way above the maximum allowed for that weight of the person. So wait is a big deal when you're administering ketamine and they weren't getting the proper way before giving them the dosage and and does this report go into the y. Here why this pattern and practice of illegal behavior Are there kind of cultural reasons in in police and fire rescue here. You cultural reasons. And i think that's a big part of it. It's hard to kind of get at wise in police agency but this report did talk a little bit about police training which i thought was interesting. How the the training academy for the aurora police department has recently made a ton of changes. But before that it was a little bit militaristic in style. The cadets were assigned quote unquote battle buddies. They were yelled at personally embarrassed for mistakes. They're not doing that anymore. But clearly a lot of people who came up and our current officers there went through this sort of training culture. And i also think they've had a lot of leadership changes. They have brand new police chief. A lot of the more experienced officers feel like there's been some mixed messages at the top right. That's awesome sherry justice supporter with colorado public radio. Thanks so much thank you. Alison recently. Talked with mcclain's mother. Chenine mclean about the ways. Her life has changed since she lost her son. Her report adds depth and context to these latest developments. So we'll hear that now and a warning. Some of the descriptions in this story are disturbing. When elijah mclean's death started becoming national news. Many people expected his mother. Shannon mclean to take a leading role in the protest movement against police violence. But she's clear that's not her path. I'm not that kind of person you know to get on the bullhorn and lead a bunch of people down the street trying to fight for rice that we shouldn't have to fight for still in the two years since her son's death she's become a force for change both in colorado and nationally. For me it comes down to the policies and the laws chenine mcclain's nightmare started the night of august. Twenty four th twenty nineteen when police aurora colorado stopped. Her son as he was walking home from a convenience store after buying is t- caller told police they saw suspicious man wearing a mask waving his arms up there. When mclean didn't immediately follow an officers commands. He was tackled to the ground. Put in to corroded holds that cut off blood flow to his brain crew with a war. Fire had to give mclean a sedative to calm him down and that on his way to the hospital he suffered a cardiac arrest bear medic. Say he regained his pulse and is now at the hospital. Shamin mclean was homeless and living in a hotel with lively siblings. She says police contacted her. That night on a messaging app and said they needed to come get her but refused to say why so. They came to the hotel that i was at and they put me in one police vehicle and they put my two children another police vehicle and there was a police liaison to the victim's advocate was there also and when we got to the hospital it was still took another hour or so for them to let me see elijah when she finally did get into his room. Shannon says elijah wasn't in good shape. He was hooked up to a ventilator and had bubble wrap around his torso his head was swollen and there were tubes in machines coming out of his nose and mouth. His eyes were open a little but not alert. he didn't like rap music at all. His brain was not registered with the rap music at all but once it got too violent and things that he was already into his. It was a steady a steady wave of his brain chemistry but after several days doctors declared mclean brain dead and took him off life support in the months following her son's death. Chenine mclean was achingly lonely. She held vigils near the spot where he died a patch of weeds by the highway which she decorated with little solar lights artificial flowers from the dollar store as a single mom doing everything i could to ensure that elijah had a future so that he would end up a statistic and then him being a statistic anyway felt like the world have rejected us. You know she hired a lawyer but says there was more talking and media attention and interviews than actual change. She hadn't talked to anyone at the aurora police department since the hospital. She didn't know where things stood at that moment. In two thousand nineteen. The broader public was not focused on police. Brutality or violence. Colorado was quiet. The politician colorado were quiet. That change in the summer of twenty twenty after george floyd's murder in minneapolis..

McClain's family lawyer, Mari Newman, a rural police officers stopped, Elijah grabbed him tackled him to the ground and over the course of the next 18 minutes inflicted multiple types of excessive force against him. McCain wasn't suspected of any crime. In the altercation that followed. Officers put him into karate holds and kept him pinned to the ground.

"Black Guy in the room at a whole bunch of why talk about raising. Other saying ignorant so lifestyle so I mean I. Know a little bit, but not. Clearly as much as Mike but I, don't know man I've always. I've always believed that. We're. We're meant to eat me like I don't I don't think I. Don't think it's anything wrong with eating meat, I think it's a natural thing and the reason why I think is a natural thing is because of. Of animals that eat meat like they killed a they. They eat certain things to survive, and so Emma it. Truly just how objects view, it's just like. What's do animals cook meat? I mean should they should? They should learn. Bearish. Fish big. I don't know I mean. Is this the I? Look at it as like a circle of life. Right like you know certain things happen to. To to keep the circle of life going or whatever like like vultures, right vultures eats Carrying like yeah, they eat shit, but I mean they eat like like decay and all that type of. But they sit it out clean North Y'all know. What's up? And I just had I just wanted to mention this before I forgot I. Don't disagree with what you're saying. I do think the the way and the ethics behind how people consume your trash. I think it's completely different. If you go to like in my experience Jamaica, or like a quote, Unquote Third World whatever right like like Ecuador like somewhere somewhere else outside, of America and you catch a chicken, who was just? Living it's best life or whatever, and then you know you, you kill it, and then you eat it. There's not a lot of hormones and stuff like that so I think people's. What's the word I'm looking forward? Not Dependence but. People rely like the way that people are committed to eating meat And how they don't really think about the processes and things that are goes through first vegetables to you know what I'm saying. The way in which how we consume, and I think fucked up. I don't think it's bad to eat meat, but I think people should be more conscious about what they put in their bodies, and where they get it from and the processes that it goes through. Vegetables and stuff too but yeah I mean I think it is better for you when you. On the balance that's I don't agree with the way we the way we do. Eat Meat like like I will feel a lot better about it. If I was like a hunter I, if I lived like if if I had no choice but to hunt for my own food, grandma, own plants and fruits like I would feel a lot better. I'm not saying the way me going to McDonald's or something like that I. I don't think that's right. You know what I'm saying I just. I don't know that's the part. That's the party struggle with it. That's the part I struggle with. You know what I'm saying. Because I know how that stuff is made, and I know that is you know? What I don't like about it, but as far as being a meat eater. I don't I don't feel bad about that. Is this the the places I go to get my food firm? That has me I definitely. Don't think you should put yourself in the same conversation as a lion. Like a lion killing an animal that is circle of life book you are doing now is not the circle of life. I do agree with you. I understand what you're saying about. You know if you were out hunting and all that stuff. Yeah, you're living off the land where it's understandable. But I get a little bothered when I. don't even get in these conversations because I i. don't I've done this for twenty seven. And for a long time out of those twenty years it was me arguing against people about why and I just don't that anymore but I do internally bother when people will try to make the argument. Will you try to take me out of Tiger's mouth like well first of all I, don't know any tigers are, but second of all know that that's that's stupid. That makes no sense does audit. Labor. But. Work with no issues. Arm torn off I definitely take. You might be worse. Chicken out of cans, mouth by losing more than. I'll. Right, but Nah I mean tastes like chicken. I don't think that it's the same thing because you're not living off the land you're. You're really hurting the land. Because these things these these the meat that you're getting it. It's fucking poisoned. The animals are in absolutely terrible conditions. Before you guys even get to them and you don't even know. Like there's such a low quality. That is like upheld in these slaughterhouses that you're getting your meat from so all of it is just really fucking gross, so throwing the whole nature part into it I don't think it's wise if you're trying to make that kind of argument. What are you say when people I? Don't know if anybody artists with you, but? When I say that plants are living like what is your argument on that? My argument is Rita fucking book. That's my argument. It's silly. When people will be like well, do IQ air moves, but you're tuned. Plants when the plant decides to cry. Okay when a plant develops a brain that can process pain. Okay, until then fuck off, not you of course. I, said, not you. Talking about you, but I've heard that plenty of times because you know Broccoli has a central nervous system, but it doesn't have a brain, so people are like well. It's evolving and at some point, Broccoli and cauliflower should. Pay Bra rose. Grow rapidly Tell me about it, but I'm just like come on man like because some people really feel for their plants like I'm becoming one of those people..

Campaigning doesn't mean they're actually out. Oh, so they just stopped they campaign. I'm sorry I'm sorry to interrupt. Good again. This is just what I had heard that. Confuse me, too, but apparently just because somebody stops. Campaigning doesn't mean they're actually out of the race like you could still vote for them if you wanted to.

He knew about and then do shit I thought that was fake. The new Rotan's put it out. Has it been confirmed to be fake yet? Yeah, I thought I thought. You know what never mind just running so I don't I don't know I saw it yesterday and I thought. Maybe it was just Russia's. Your Russia's denying it. So what I know now is that Russia denied it, but they're also saying that it probably went only so far that it never reached. Putin's death, so he has no knowledge of it, which is another way you can talk around it and trump, and then we're saying the same thing. but now that covert Kinda dying down there talks about what to do with this sort of expanding, so we go is denial denial denial, and then you try to spend it.

"What is it yeah? I'm using it in the right context though. Peru non-parole God parcels? On Black. I'm seeing. What kind of non borough? Parcel. Is that the. Words that we never heard. A. Sensual. What's the other word? He always use Typical. Typical typical. Non Perot Twelve is always non Perot and I don't know if you are Saudis me. basically a headline about two days ago, where a police officer pretty much was trying to detain a pregnant woman by having his knee on her neck. And then taste her belly and killed her. Up. I swear to God house episode of Black Mirror Bro. You saw right Sophie. Yeah Burt and the guy. Dies. I didn't know. I did not know that. Her stomach tasers multiple times dish video I soon as the black woman. So. This is going to open up a very interesting discussion for these These all lives matter conservative white not yet is because. Are you going to okay, so if if if this cop ends up getting charged. What would he be charged with? Would he be charged with murder? And if not, why not? Because if y'all think that babies our lives because you're pro-life. How can you say that? This is not murder because you killed a quote, unquote innocent child. You perfectly tasers under such thing right I think that a lot of the Times people like you and me and you know other people. Are you know this would pose a very interesting argument because if they're saying this? Year, but the thing is. Racist people fucking library Dave fucking just lie and lie. There fucking point across so there's no logic that makes any fucking sense you can see. They're fucking president that this makes no Goddamn sent, and this was something that I was struggling with couple of weeks back. Because I. Just felt very like alienated, and like do people really not understand racism and not the issue like? Do they just not get it because they made it up? So it's like how can you like? Throw something into the and just turn your head and be like I don't know you know like that's crazy to me. It's not that they don't know and it's not that you know they're not aware. That they fucking be fucking lying and it wasn't until I did watch a video. It was broken down very nicely by Amanda Sales. A lot of people don't agree with her on stuff, but I know that you know her opinions on race to me are typically on point, but yeah, she basically you know brought up manifest destiny, and all of these things in history that white people have traditionally lied about basically remain at the top, or you know, make it seem like ignorance is bliss, but they know what the fuck they'd be doing, and they always have these arguments where it's. It's like blue lives. Matter but Lou is actually life just these things they throw out there just to support their ideals, so I think at the end of the day. It makes us feel better like hey, we're. We debunk their theory. We gotcha. No, you don't. They're still going to be racist and they're still GONNA lie dive in so much just about racism. It's about it's about your whole stance on on politics in general. Yeah, so if you're going to the voting for people based on. Based on race as well, but also based on things like. PRO-CHOICE PRO-LIFE RIGHT? I'm just looking at it again. If this person is charged, how can you fight whether or not? It's murder because if you're saying that abortion should be illegal. Because, it's murder. If this taste, a woman stomach purposely because she was killed her. Killed The baby I understand that but I think at the end of the day. It doesn't matter Aboul whether a baby died or not. In the process there are going to be some racist people who might feel bad, or maybe they won't. Because it's a black baby, but I think at the end of the day like. I. Don't think people who are pro-life fight for being pro-life because they're actually pro-life, they, of course not exactly, but that's my point, so I think that it would be I think it will open. An interesting discussion, because it's not about a Gotcha moment because these people are creating policy based around that theory exactly so, but that's that's what I'm saying, so it would be an issue where I feel like there'd be a lot to discuss their and unpack. So. Yeah, there's sure they might not listen. They might not even want to have that discussion, but if they did I think it would be an interesting discussion to have I. Don't think it would be you. Link got him this. I just don't think it would be because we know racist people to come up and get behind a podium and dispute whatever the fuck, but again it's not about the race part like if we're removing and I know I sound like all is white guy right now, but we're removing the race discussion from it I'm looking at overall like okay. Let's say if this was a white baby. Oh, I feel like we would still have to have that discussion, and then maybe that would benefit policy at the end of the day. Because maybe these guys would have to stop and really think about what they're saying, but that's what I'm. That's what I'm thinking and I'm. I'm in agreement with both of you. That are really big is going to be interesting to see what they do with. Back up and make their way out of this is what I'm hearing from. Sophie or my interpretation. What she's saying is that these mother fuckers are so racist that they'll be. They'll find a loophole in a push that to the side and put their racism ahead of the pro-life and I don't think you can. When it comes to actually enforcing some sort of law or policy, so that knowing part that I find the interesting to watch. Yes, for this woman lost her child bullshit. But. How far does racism go like? How far does your? Your races DNA in this country, or in that conservative or pro-life or whatever. How far does that goes your racism? overwrite the Bible right? Yeah, most people yes. But I'm curious to see how this goes. I can't believe this is real to ask..

"The future raft. What I'm saying. But but but. It doesn't have to be even though I mentioned that incremental ISM. It doesn't have to be that slow. So. It's just a matter of. Of. Them reacting to political pressure to get these things done, they are going to try to wait us out That's what they're gonNA do and give us crammed. Yup, and that's what the flags and statues. That's all that shit is. That's all it is is just crumbs and they still eat from the table. You Know My my other issue with this is that I don't like what about `Isms and that's what I feel like. This is creating. Light like Hingis said the crumbs thing. That's what this is. We have this big issue that we're talking about. And then you have a couple of people were like well. What about the flag? What about this? What about that? It's like hold on. How about we attacked this issue right now? Let's make sure this is getting taken care of. Then, we can move on to something else. You know what I'm saying. Like police are literally killing people. I'm not sweating this statute that's in downtown decatur. Not I'm just. Killing people that's that's right. y'All can make a symbolic. The symbolism of the statue is what's killing people in America. Take that Liberal Arts degree, and where the fuck else. I'm not worried about that right now I'm worried about literally walking out the door getting on my car. Having a cop pulled me over and shooting me, so I'm with you I'm not really.

Okay that s that's not really helping, but. I mean he's having, but not in a way that I think it could really help to pull and. Push Up. Smaller voices that are creative at just needs that type of the or help. The but the other thing though and I think when I think about this is that is This is how stars because media for the most part. Is Why controlled and we have wanted to networks TV one bt. Eventually they sold out, but now we have these guys that are trying to do something in the media space that has leverage clout and pull and all of those things. To push back against everybody else and can do it their way, so it'll be interesting to see if where this goes and what he does with it. Because because those voices need it like you say we. We've been around for ten years, and we reached seven million people annually combined with on you to. Over a hundred thousand people a month with the PODCAST so we reach people very small new people, but we reach people from our perspective as people that's living this life, not as an athlete or a celebrity or something that's somewhat shielded or insulated from those like. We're asking me living in the world. So so, but and and we're talking from a black perspective. Dating Games just got pulled into something. That I think he's going to be great. But you guys are speaking on that and coming in a direction that. That's needed because it's often not there underserved, so we'll see but. Regardless of where it goes? I think it'd be if he stays within the confines of of blackness. I think it'd be great. Man I think it'd be great. You know that's that's how it starts with today's world. You don't need like all of this investment fund to get on TV or radio or anything like that. frigging you to get you live or whatever in bail so? So yeah. So, let's. Top it was just kind of general. I guess like just. So I'll start with with this a graphic saw. But I I had been seeing it, but like it's like it says us, Hey, could the police just treat US better? ABC Black Bachelor. starbucks black blacked up Baristas Netflix's watch all these movies and shows now. Hulu or else Bandai. We gotcha Booze Fan TV. All the COP shows canceled city. Let's paint. This road y'all CEO's listen y'all take June teams off. That's that's on US and US. We're just like okay, but the. Police so this is like I'm seeing all of this stuff like people are doing in. Life Changing flags and doing all this stuff, but nobody's talking about like defunding employees. It's like doing everything except what? We're asking for have y'all been noticing that absolutely, and it's pissing me off. Yes, there is literally this radio. Station that I guess. My mom listens to in the morning or something I heard it on and this guy was like you know. Do they want every single white American to personally apologize to the to the Indian people. Do they want know every American to personally apologize to black people I mean if that's what you want, fine, we'll do that. You know it might sound ridiculous or silly to us, but fine will do it, but we're not going to defend the police. What what what is it that? That you guys want from us, and I'm like well. We just told you what we wanted. You're telling us you're not going. Do it? And you're upset that you have to do all these other things that we never asked for and it just kind of seems it makes white. People seem outraged like. Oh, my Gosh! They're changing the bottles on things. Oh my God. They're changing the Danes on things. They're painting the streets. Black lives matter. It's so crazy. That's not what the fuck we asked for. So yeah. I, am noticing that. This is weird to me like. Doing all of this. Like what what people want? Some places are doing it though to what some people some places are doing defunding place Yeah, in Minneapolis! They they're talking about completely abolishing the police departments and. So I mean. Is it not abolishing defunding? Mean your it's. It's slow is going to be slow I think the issue. Is Everyone seriously? Like we live in a in a right now aside. You know that's just the way kids grow up these days and they think that. You can say right now I want all of this shit done, and it's like Oh overnight. It done, but that's not the way it works. It's just gonNA. Take some time right reason why you say right now right, but they're doing all this other shit like right now. Like statues flags all his. Other shifts just I. Don't know who's in charge of it. Oh! Stuff have to get pass in order for it to happen. Though no focus are tearing these factories. They don't own tearing down talk official like.

I imagine you're right primarily. This is your assignment. Should you choose deceptive? Sophie. You say you listed. I think I've heard of a juice like a lot of people will use. Like different clips of their music as response to like different tweets, just to give a promotion exciting. I've heard it on accident like that, so I have an idea of how it sounds good but I don't really know any music by name or the artist or anything I just know that super popular over there All right cool, so let's jump into our topics for the week. What you got Mr Foe thirty. Yeah like I. Say it's a quick, and I mean this dude is continuing to take over Shit Man on Lebron James and longtime business partner maverick owner has. Got One hundred million dollar investment to build a new meeting media empire. Lebron James as pretty much. It's going to be unapologetic agenda. is going to be unapologetic black, maybe like it's going to be reaching out for Black Traders, black business folks black everything black so i. think the fact that he already built a school in his hometown. You know for underprivileged kids and had him hooked him. Get through college and businesses and everything like that. I think that's though and the process I think of. Of Him building at school he had like the parents can kind of like if they don't have their college education, he paid for college. You know all that stuff too I. Think Lebron is doing so amazing things outside of basketball man and you know those that are whole thing is like you want him to just shut up and dribble, but he's actually. Doing stuff is community man. I think it's no I think that's just wanted to bring it up and talk about it on this huge platform. We I think I think the thing is so interesting to me of Oliver. James Off, the core is like. There's so much pressure and scrutiny on this man, and realistically outside of the the whole Miami thing like the the way he decided to go to to join the Miami, like he has had no misstep, and I think that that's so difficult in today's Day and age to be I. Don't WanNa? Say Right, but just have like the real pulse of the people in truly giving back and creating opportunity You know what I'm saying like Oh I. Don't think there's been another. Sports athlete to do it how he's doing it and he's doing his wall. He's still playing in the midst of his career so I. I think that that just sets up for an either an even bigger stage post career. You know what I'm saying, so M bigshots, Lebron man that's huge because I mean you look at previous athletes from you know in you know the elise and you know out of athletes that still for something that's still verse, and in most. Most parts I feel like Lebron James Really using his money like lot. E. Wasn't making one hundred million twenty million money dollars and stuff that he had financial backing. Lebron James is taking his findings are back in really helping out, so I think that's dope. Man, I think that's really a hope is his new venture day he him and his longtime partner crates hope it benefits I said you know the only bad business. Move that they've done. Was Johnny Manziel? If you. Look at it as Yes so johnny was drafted that that's who represented him, and after about two mix ups with the law, they they advertise that. Wasn't that bad of a deal. It didn't work out, but it didn't work. The opposite of what white people do with black people you try to find. Somebody, that's outlandish and well known and monetize them.

Elijah McClain's mother says officers "murdered" my son

"Longer protesters and demonstrators and activists continue fighting for black lives. The more stories of police killings of black people seem to be coming to light and pressure is now mounting for a new investigation. Into the death of Elijah McCain. It happened after an encounter with three officers last August in Aurora, Colorado. Go to the family. The 23 year old was out buying ice tea when somebody called 911 claiming that MacLean was wearing a ski mask and quote acting weird. His family says, Yeah, he was wearing a mask, but it was to deal with social anxiety. Within 15 minutes, He was put in a chokehold and then injected with a powerful sedative. CBS's David Begnaud has the story. Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop. I have the right stuff because you're being suspicious. Rely on I'm going whole relax, or I'm going to have to change this situation. The district attorney investigating the case says that Elijah McClane dismissed the officers requests for him to stop. The 23 year olds family says he was just walking home. He was listening to music. When Aurora, Colorado police approached him last August, the D A. Says McLane was carrying a plastic bag when police tried to pat him down and he refused. He's then heard pleading with the police as they tackle him and use a choke hold on him. Paramedics later arrived at the scene. A medic gave McClane ketamine to sedate him. McLane was taken to the hospital. Three days later, he was pronounced brain dead. 10 months after McLane's death, more than two million people have signed a petition calling on Colorado officials to fire the three officers involved. So far, the Aurora Police Department has declined. CBS News is request for comment. Dave Young is the one who decided not to charge the officers were the actions of the officers justified legally. Yes, Mr Young. Do you believe there was a moment in this where the officers could have de escalated a situation? Absolutely. 100%. They could've done a 1,000,000 things different didn't need to die on and the fact that he died does not warrant the basis for criminal charges in the body camera video cops or heard saying that MacLean tried to take one of their guns. He went for his gun. Mari Newman represents McClain's family. Don't you think if you really had grab someone's gun, we would see fingerprints ended the lifted from the gun. Did you find any evidence that corroborates the officer who said he reached for the gun? I had no evidence to cut. Predict that Shin in McLean is Elijah's mother. They? They're bullies with badges. He wanted to help people. He was a massage therapist. He not only heal others that he killed himself. He was able to accept love give love various forms. According to the district attorney's report, the medical examiner was unable to determine a cause of death. It is important to note that walking around with a ski mask is not illegal, and when you go back to the 9 11 call, the caller didn't say that Elijah did anything illegal. He said. Hey, there's a guy wearing a mask. He kind of is waving his hand. Seems a little strange. You might want to check it out. He says He might be a good guy might be a bad guy. When the police responded instead of observing. Instead of watching hanging back for a bit, the police moved in immediately to stop him. And everything went self from there.
