Michael Eric Dyson Explains Why 'Economic Recovery Should Be Targeted Toward Have Nots'

"Talk about wealth and income inequality disproportionately affecting people of color and should the economic recovery measures be targeted therefore to these people and if so, how can that be the tough one? Yeah. Well, yeah, they definitely need to be targeted toward the less, you know fortunate and the Have Nots versus to have God's they're all kind of see but dead. You know, you got to get beyond the obsession with those socialism doctor King said we got socialism for the rich and free enterprise for the poor, right the ones who are really getting socialism and communism that goes up at the top who are Distributing their cash among themselves. There are many redistributive mechanisms to those who are beneath. Look at our housing policies. If if housing is the entree in the middle class, that's a huge mechanism of economic wealth that can be measured and we can do stuff about opening up housing markets making them more Ecuador standing with the Supreme Court saying that certain practices is not just a the consequence of it used to be I mean the intent like if you had intent to harm somebody with housing or be prejudiced thoughts, okay, you were wrong, but if the consequence was that they were still harmed. So what the Supreme Court said? No, you gotta look at consequences. Well, so outcomes are as just important just as important job. As intent that's one way another way of these educational disparities. If there is a correlation roughly hewn between what kind of education you have and what kind of money you make then it would behoove us to enforce certain educational practices that pay attention to the least of these and if the tax base is the determinant for education and so many Iraq owes then the government which has been a beneficiary of and it you know of a kind of you know, Jim Crow approach an apartheid racially speaking in the law passed to you know, fill its coffers for white education vs. Black one then we owe some money toward those people who are at the bottom of the totem pole and then figuring out what kind of jobs and job-training could help black and Indigenous and Latin X people to get higher up on the totem pole. Those are a few things that can be done and stop the voter suppression. That would be Huge thing that now those things get fought in courts, but they can also the Attorney General can have engagement with these issues on local municipalities and finally in terms of leasing, you know, under Obama Eric Holder and then Loretta Lynch, but especially Eric Holder was talking about these consent decrees and looking at these police departments and it's another thing to be done again. So look at them cuz police departments are extracting all kinds of monies. Look at Ferguson, Missouri all kind of money from the local people making their coffers fill while depleting resources for people on the ground. Those are a few ways and few things we can do to make sure that we can Target those monies toward the most vulnerable.

Episode 77: Police Reform, Public Safety, and Gun Violence Prevention

"And so I'm wondering if we can just start I kind of calling out the elephant in the room which is talking about, you know, the background like what why now are we seeing all these conversations about race and policing Beyond, you know, maybe just suck the recent shootings that have drawn attention to police reform. I guess I'll start then again, good morning everyone in admissions earlier, but greetings behalf of our national presence l&j Davis where she's actually the police chief of Durham North Carolina city of New York and she puts sadly enough police culture wins out a lot more time you compare to policy and I think when you look at what's our critic just and the recent birth But historically for decades and then some cases leaving probably go back to hundreds of years. Fortunately. This is nothing new in our community. So will they be communities of color African American communities wage? I think when you look at what occurred Mister Floyd, it really caught the country where it was pretty much all able to view here. I think get some bad public confirmation that even eight minutes and forty six seconds is not enough to address the Injustice of our country. And so the complexities go well beyond lot, of course about this law enforcement for most persons of my opinion represent the government meaning most citizens would probably never be the mayor of their city or their city council or both. We would encourage him what a meat sauce and do those meetings, but it main ways that that rank-and-file officers that beat cop is the government and so when I look at this definitely will ennoble standpoint we're outraged birth What occurred with mister Floyd be very Frank were outraged even going back before you until we outraged by really just decades and Decades of things that have occurred in this space. So, how do we respect and honor everyone's Humanity? How do we ensure the Irwin Fields as though they can and will achieve the American Gene regardless of edgy maybe and so from an overdose standpoint and we sit in front of Congress both the u.s. Sending US House of Representatives is that these issues go well beyond law enforcement. We in law enforcement have to own it off. And so I look back to Ferguson Missouri many of us tried and and continue to try to get the kinds of reforms and things we felt we needed after Michael Brown Stephanie Sussman deaths of many other three one more than Aragorn and so on and we were not successful. I think what you're seeing now is a cross-section of not just African-Americans, but all Races and then from genders and dead. And demographics across the board say this time we're going to put a stake in the ground and do our best to adjust. We saw over those eight minutes and 26 seconds. And then the broader thing is to age is of class and education housing jobs, et cetera is a whole lot more complex than just what occur but we had Noble or asking for comprehensive reform now just in law enforcement but looking at kind of a hobby. Oh, shared resources across our entire National landscape know, I mean, I think that that context that larger placement is huge and Clayton a under sort of what your perspective is as someone who literally as we've described it on this podcast is is also boots on the ground but maybe from a different direction. Yes, you know, this is not what they say the straw that broke the camel's back. That's pretty much what we're experiencing right now. I mean a lot of the Injustice and the stuff has been going on for decades. And we knew about it, you know, but some of the people that are never in power always turned a blind eye because as you say the video wasn't prevalent a lot of things just wasn't out there. But now I think Society changes you're starting to see, you know, the the people wake up almost, you know, as they say they're not starting to be woke but when you have a sister that's been put together for you know, decades generation and misses the status quo other system. It's so hard to change overnight. It's so hard to make adjustments where you know, it's kind of a finger it's going to take a lot of sacrifices going to take a lot of love. It's going to take a lot of you know, just Community effort in order to put for certain things to make sure that you know, we change the system from within and from without people try it like no one wants to keep getting pulled over by law enforcement. No one wants to keep going, you know the same old same old when all them Going to do is live. All I want to do is live and a lot of folks and how communities they are in survival mode because they've been surviving for so long that that's all they know. So when you got individuals in a survival mode and they're trying to move around or they're trying to you know, make sure certain things for they family is good, you know, if individuals around me willing to do anything anything wage and everything to anybody to because that's that's Survival Mode. They not living anymore because they they feel like it's not worth. It don't matter know regardless will happen. Everything will still be the same that's how they feel and and you know, that's what you know, we have to do and change that mindset on your holiday. You perceive certain things because if they always feel defeated and their survival mode, it's going to stop progress from family, you know, and then the places where it needs to be because they're not thinking about their future. They not thinking about nobody else feature. They thinking only in the present and that day to survive just for the next ledge

What is intersectional environmentalism?

"Org. I'm Dr Anthony lies with and this is climate connections. In Twenty Fourteen Lee Thomas was in college environmental science policy when a crisis unfolded in her hometown of Ferguson Missouri. Police shot unarmed black teenager Michael. Brown. Sparking widespread protests. China learn about the Clean Air Act while my sister is getting furious back home in a protest. She says, the events made her question who the cleaner rack really protects. Inner concern increased when she read data showing that people of color are more exposed to many air and water pollutants as a black woman. She was dismayed because I would say that's me on that page. That's my community. That's my family. So this past may in what became a viral instagram post Thomas called on environmentalists to stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter Movement. And she defined what she calls intersectional environmentalism. Aware inclusive version of environmentalism that identifies the ways in which injustices happening marginalized communities, and the Earth are interconnected. She hopes that the definition helps articulate a new approach to environmental activism one that has the well being of the planet and people at its core.

The use of 'less-lethal' force by law enforcement

The use of 'less-lethal' force by law enforcement

"It's been a summer of unrest in a number of cities across the country, and just how and win police use so called less lethal force is a topic of much debate as we report in our cover story. Theo demonstrations in Kenosha, Wisconsin, streets in the name of Jacob Blake started as most protest do peacefully. But his day turned to night simmering tensions boiled over. Tempers were lost. So is the message. For police. Balancing the right to assemble with public safety is a delicate one. If and win, crowds get out of control the weapons at their disposal. Are designed to be less lethal. But in the weeks of unrest since the death of George Floyd Not just violent agitators being targeted by being backgrounds on phone tip projectile. It's the innocent. We're being injured as well. Take this protest in Fort Lauderdale, Florida back in May. 34 year old LaToya Ratliff was there Was it peaceful? Was very peaceful. There weren't any issues for the most part of the day. But something changed. She wasn't sure. Just what the time but clearly mood shift way were kneeling on the ground, a good distance away from the officers. And even as we were kneeling and chanting and being peaceful at that time we started to get tear gassed. The crowd dispersed, including a toy. That's her wearing a pink backpack. But watch what happens next. Toya was shot in the head by a 40 millimeter phone tipped round fired, her attorney says, Buy a Fort Lauderdale police officers. The impact fractured the toys, skull. She needed 20 stitches and I remember people screaming and saying help. She's been hit called 911 in my mind. I'm not thinking that I was shot because Why would the officer shoot me? If I'm not posing any type of threat to him and I'm actually leaving? Hers is not a unique or isolated incident. I didn't realize how big of a deal it wass. Until there was light surgeons around me. Linda Toronto, is a freelance journalist sent to cover the George Floyd protests in Minneapolis. She's a veteran of this kind of reporting she was in Ferguson, Missouri. Back in 2014. After another police killing this one of Michael Brown. There's a space where the protesters were gathered in a group and police were gathered in their line, and the people who are in between and not space are gonna be media. That's how you get the understanding of what's going on is you, you stand and you watch both sides. That's what she was doing in Minneapolis that night. This is the last photo she took what appears to show an officer aiming directly at her. I think that I not shooting people in the face for exercising. The first thing we fixed about the Constitution should just be Standard operating procedure. The non lethal round shot at Linda that night blinded her in her left eye, so I can see to about here on de everything past. Everything from here to here is just a blank. I'm assured that as I become used to having one, I'll be able to do all the things I used to do without it being a problem. But like the getting usedto only having one eyes Not a small task. To be sure, police have been injured in the protest to hundreds of more than 50 on one particularly violent night in Seattle. Crowds can be dangerous, dispersing them is often necessary. The research on the lethality of less lethal weapons. Is pretty hard to come by. In 2017 review of the available literature of the subject was published in a medical journal. Be M. J. Open. Of the nearly 2000 people. Since 1990 documented to have been injured by less lethal rounds. 300 suffered permanent disability 53 of them died. These air, large, dense High speed projectiles, and they cause significant and severe injuries. Doctor Rahimi Har is with physicians for human rights and one of the authors of that review. The basic rights like free speech and free assembly are being suppressed. Globally and the primary way that that's happening is because of crowd control weapons. In just the first week after the death of George Floyd Horror documented at least 100 serious injuries to protesters and journalists. Most To the head and neck. The narrative is that they're not lethal. They're not dangerous that police need a continuum of use of force and that these air really excellent options for them to be safe while at the same time controlling riots, and that's not the case. It's absolutely not the case. While most police departments have access to Leslie, the weapons experts say fewer offered any significant training. Just how to use them. I've talked agencies. We've never seen crowd control before. We didn't even know what to do These air 40 millimeter impact munitions. Travis Norton is an instructor with the California Association of Tactical Officers. He specializes in less lethal weapons. Not only how to use them. But win How do you do with a group of agitators in the middle of peaceful protesters? There are a lot of different tactics you can use. Unfortunately, a lot of those departments don't know what those tactics are. What are we trying to accomplish with what we're trying to do? Are we just standing here on the skirmish line and deploying impact munitions protesters hoping they'll go away or do we have an actual strategy? Rules of engagement, he says, have to be set. Because the risk of injury is almost inevitable. Unlike live ammunition, less lethal projectiles are unpredictable, where an officer aims and where the munitions hit. Could be two different things. Law enforcement is screaming for something better for us to use that it's out there in the last 20 years. We have had no new, less lethal. Come out other than prototypes and pilot projects until something better comes along, he says less lethal Sze will likely remain a crowd control option for police departments. It doesn't have to remain, he says. Is the cloud around their use. A lot of times what happens within law enforcement is these things will happen, And then we just forget about him because we're onto the next emergency. It's not purposeful. It's just we don't have a lot of time to reflect on things and we have to do better at that thespian or injuries. Montoya rattling has kept demonstrating Peaceful protest is in her DNA.

How Does Jane Elliott's Blue Eyes/Brown Exercise Work?

How Does Jane Elliott's Blue Eyes/Brown Exercise Work?

"The past fifty, two years teacher and diversity trainer Jane Elliott has been stirring up trouble on the subject of racism. It can still be uncomfortable squirm in your seat stare at your shoes uncomfortable when she subject someone to the very same exercise she I unleashed on third graders more than half a century ago designed to expose racist thinking. Something, her method can get downright mean but again, the subject is racism, it should be troubling. Elliott came to prominence when the day after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior in nineteen, sixty, eight, sheep herself a white woman took her classroom of all white third graders in. Riceville Iowa and decided to teach them what it was like to face discrimination. She separated the kids into two groups those with Brown eyes and those with blue and proceeded to proclaim the. Brown. Is these superior group she allowed the group extra privileges more time recess seats at the front of the room they were told they were cleaner smarter more talented. How children reacted to this newfound pecking order was startling. The Brown eyed group immediately began to wield their dominance. The blue is almost immediately slipped into the role of subordinates. Anger flared disputes popped up. After switching roles a few days later, which gave both sides of the classroom taste of being in the lesser group the exercise ended. Many parents complained after reading about what had happened in Elliott's classroom through student essays printed in the local paper. A month or so later, Johnny Carson invited Elliott to appear on his late night talk show she became a national story. Many praised efforts at her students is but not everybody a two, thousand five storied Sonian magazine reported hundreds, viewers, wrote letters, saying Elliott's work appalled them how dare you try this cruel experiment out on white children? One said black children grow up accustomed to such behavior but white children, there's no way they could possibly understand it. It's cruel to white children and will cause them great psychological damage. Elliott spoke with us for the article that this episode is based on from her home in Iowa. She said, you think that's traumatizing try living that way for a lifetime. Elliott taught for years before she decided to take her anti-racism lesson out of the classroom and Corporate America. She's also led the exercise for the US Department of Education and other governmental groups. She's appeared before numerous church and school assemblies she was on. Oprah Winfrey's TV show several times in June of twenty twenty. She appeared on the tonight show starring Jimmy Fallon. She often faces uncomfortable and sometimes angry reactions but her goal as it has been for the past fifty two years is education. She says, it's the best weapon against racism. But good education about racism and race is hard to find. Elliott said, that's because the educators believe the same thing that they were taught and they were taught the same thing I was, which is that there are three or four different races and you can tell what a man's intelligence is by the color of his skin or the shape of his head. You can't lead people out of ignorance if you're still teaching the Columbus discovered America and we came here to civilize these savages. Will need to teach the three RS of rights respect responsibility if teachers would respect the rights of those students to learn the truth and be held responsible for seeing that they present them with the truth we could kill racism in two generations is not a doubt in my mind that could be done. Elliott at eighty seven years. Old has seen. America, grapple with racism all her life. She's marked major mile posts in the struggle over the past fifty years or so the civil rights movement and the assassination of doctor king in the sixties, the race riots in Miami's Liberty City in nineteen eighty and in Los. Angeles after the Rodney King beating in nineteen ninety, two, the protests in Ferguson. Missouri and twenty fourteen after the killing of Michael Brown and in Baltimore Maryland in two thousand fifteen after that of Freddie Gray and in Charleston south. Carolina. That same year after a church massacre. There are many others. But the problem she has been relentlessly attacking Elliott says, goes far beyond the occasional race-based. Clara. For people of Color in the United States facing racism is an everyday fight every minute of every day. Elliot said. It's only been going on with me for fifty two years. I know black women who have been doing this for eighty nine years and their mothers did and their grandmothers dead and their great is dead and their daughters and their granddaughters and their great granddaughters are going to have to do. It must be get off our polyunsaturated fatty acids and do something about this. I get paid to talk about it. They aren't even allowed to talk about it. One of the biggest hurdles in educating people about racism in the United States Elliott says is that most everyone knows it exists and knows that it's harmful but few are motivated to change it. She stood in front of. and asked who among the white people in the room would want to switch places with a black person no one ever volunteers. She cautions that recognizing the problem is only the first step but Elliott is nothing if not persistent, she says, she'll continue to educate for the next fifty years. She'll push her mantra of one race the science behind the simple words it's clear. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute your genome, the bodies blueprint that contains all of your DNA is ninety, nine point nine percent the same as every human around you. And she says, she will urge people to get out and vote November no hope of electing leaders who will attack racism as she has had on.

The deadly shooting of Michael Brown in August 2014 led two months of unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. A grand jury declined to indict White police officer Darren Wilson for killing the black 18 year old. Almost six years later, ST Louis County Prosecutor Wesley Bell announced to reopen the case.

Lack of Accountability for Police Violence is Solvable

"This is solvable. I'm Jacob Weisberg. There is a lack of accountability for police, violence and one part of. Solving that is to give federal prosecutors more tools, so they can actually prosecute this cases. Approximately a thousand people killed during police encounters in the United States every year. And in fact, that number is held steady for nearly twenty years. Around half of those killed or white. Black Americans are more than twice as likely to die at the hands of police. They are killed disproportionately to their overall representation in the population. I'm thinking about. Say The shooting of Philander Castille. CAPLESS Tamir Rice twelve year, old boy, who was shot and killed by an officer when playing in a park in Cleveland. How do we achieve racial justice while protecting public safety? Lawyer Cheer Baynes believes the federal. Government has a key role to play. What exactly would you like to see? Happen there for Congress to lower the intense standard from willfulness recklessness, so that it would be a federal crime recklessly deprive someone of their rights under color of law to recklessly use excessive force for all the Americans who died during police encounters in less than two percent of cases, does an officer end up being charged with a crime? When you were at Doj how many times did specific language of willful thwart possible prosecution of of an officer? You think you felt a done something wrong. Routinely, that was the biggest barrier. It was always the central concern. Kira. Who's devoted his career to ending impunity for officers who commit crimes against citizens thinks we can fix this. The problem of lack of accountability for police violence is solvable. Cheering Baines is the director of Legal Strategies de Moth a racial justice organization before that he worked at the US Department of Justice, serving a senior counsel to the head the civil. Rights Division, that's the division that investigated. Ferguson Missouri and sued the city for unconstitutional policing and court practices. Baynes Co wrote the Ferguson report. Malcolm Bradwell spoke to Baynes about what needs to be done to solve the persistent problem of police impunity at the national level. To critical components are lowering the intense standard for the federal government to prosecute active excessive force criminally and using federal consent decrees to address systemic misconduct. You've been working on this question of how to make police better for quite some time right? Yes, actually. It's been an issue that's been. An issue that I've been distressed by want to do something about since I was a young kid. Actually the Rodney King case happened in the beating of Rodney King. One thousand, nine, hundred, one I was ten years old, and there are a lot of high profile incidents in the hundred ninety s with I'm dirty, yellow Louima and many other high profile cases of police violence police killings. Finish cared about as a high schooler for sure I can remember that were you in high school Chelmsford High School? It's a small town in Massachusetts next to the city of Lowell, maybe about thirty thousand thirty five thousand people. It wasn't like you were. LIVING IN LA or living in the Bronx where Ahmadou was shot, it was you were these were instance miles away. That nonetheless caught your attention. Absolutely these are national stories and I was very interested in. Civil Rights history even civil rights law. The role of lawyers in the civil rights movement. I think maybe juxtaposed that history and the principles underlying that movement with what I was seeing. Play out in terms of police violence in the country. At that time, and actually can remember. An organization called the stolen lives project that would collect information about the people who have been killed by police, disproportionately young black man. That is something that I recall, so. It's something I've. been working on for a long time ended up working on that some more in law school, focusing on it, and then it on my first job after clerking for a federal judge was to actually prosecute police misconduct cases including police violence. How early on you decide that? You wanted to become a lawyer depressingly early? Han actually I think I thought in high school. That would become a lawyer. What did you think of that decision? Well I'm an Indian kid and the child immigrants and so. I think a lot of people in that boat might relate. My mother wanted me to be a doctor. That would million other Indian children. Yeah Yeah. It's a common refrain and. Short of being a doctor, a lawyer was pretty good, so. But you know my family wasn't focused on these issues. These weren't the issues that they confronted him and they cared about it. In the sense research, generally aware my grandmother used to describe all this work as a community service or volunteer work and I'd have to actually get paid to do this job.

"Today! We're sharing a story from two thousand fifteen. It contains references to police brutality. The plan was actually I was just going out there to be nosy. I wanted to see what you know. What a protest was looking live because I had called my brother. and. He said He said they're protesting. And you know I didn't know what a protest was while. I knew it was, but I have never seen one in person I've read about them in school. So I I, wanted to see one in person. This is Edward. Crawford on August eleventh two thousand fourteen just a few days after. Michael Brown was shot and killed by officer. Darren Wilson in Ferguson Missouri Edward Crawford onto his first protest. People angry, I, think signs. Here people chanting using profanity. I mean they were mad. You know the the motion was at all time high. Over well. There were people crying. I, don't know if those relatives or friends of my Brown. It was. It was it was different. It was something I never experienced in my life. That's how he described his first day of demonstrations when he went back out the next night. August twelfth. It was a different story. The people out there protesting. They were angry at the police and the police were angry at the people that were protesting. You know so it's like. Both sides were antagonizing each other. And you know the. They were out there to do their job. But the People In our I guess they were there to be hard. The police at some point, they started lining up with riot gear. What did that look like to you? Is that when things started to seem like scary or or the things are changing? Their looked like something you see on a movie They were very tactical. You know you can tell that they have been through. Very prestigious training. You know like the formation. Even when they move, you know they move on one. It seemed like they were. On one beat. If it if you you know if that's what you call, it I, don't know, but. It was organized. And they were chanting like a go home. This is not a lawful. Protest anymore. Please return home. And then there were people saying like this is home. This whole scene was well documented in the media at the time. The conflict between protesters and law enforcement reached fever pitch. And when the protesters refused to disperse, the police started firing at the crowd with rubber, bullets, wood pellets and tear gas canisters so when they shot the tear gas. Landing fairly close and the sound of I, don't. I'm pretty sure you haven't heard. Tear gas shot. It's a loud sounds like a grenade is going off when his shot. And It's it's when it's when his first shot it's. It's like real smoke in the sky. And then you can follow the smoke trail. You'll see where it lands and it landed. Fairly close to me. What did it look like when it landed? How big is it league? A spray paint can No, it's actually smaller like a twelve ounce soda can and it was smoking at the time it was the fire. What did it feel like when you picked it up? It was it was room temperature. It wasn't hot. It really didn't have A. Distinctive you know like to where if you touch you know that okay. This is not good. What did you do it? Throughout the way either just out of the way, or did you throw it? which way did you throw it? I really didn't aim for direction because I didn't have time to even think to where I was GONNA throw it.

"Activity cross managing editor at the still with me and to MSNBC media analyst, Eric Dagens, and the police chief of Ferguson Missouri. Delrish MAs. And if you had a question for Mr. merit. Yeah, Mr. Marriott, I've read that investigators have downloaded the electronic data from the door locks, and I'm wondering what, if anything will that reveal and when do we expect to get the results? Sure. That's going to be very important information. They've captured not only Mr. Jones door, but also misguided door below those leave. Every time the keys used successfully have electric key. Every time the Jews successfully, it leaves electron footprint and so they should be able to know whether ember Geiger accessed her apartment prior to exiting or entering Mr.. Zones apartment. They won't be able to tell if the door was left open unfortunately. But if if she in fact went to her apartment, I, they will be able to capture that information. I want to bring in our smarts and our thank you for being here. The police chief of Ferguson Missouri, a longtime police officer. You know who worked in Miami and the Miami or for a long time. So I know that you know of what you speak, sir. And so what through this is it normal after a police officer, shoot someone in general not commenting on on your particular department in specifically, but in general, is it normal for police to search the home of the deceit of the deceased person to look for drugs? I think in this case, the reason for the search of the deceased home is because that's where the actual shooting took place. One of the things we're going to do is go in and look for fruit of whatever you think might have led up to the shooting. This is a homicide investigation, and so on a homicide investigation, you will search the place where the actual shooting took place. Is it normal to share the result of that search with the media will typically what happens is that you file an information with the clerk's office basically saying, these are the things that we found a lot of journalist, I know especially with the Miami Herald, they typically go to the clerk's office and they get that which is public record now actually going out and sharing it is not something that we normally do, but having it available where it's public record is the normal course of business. And it does seem that Geiger dollars has told a lot of different stories about, you know what happened that night? How quickly after a shooting, our police officers typically required to file an actual official statement of what happened? Well, one of the things that happens is this becomes a criminal investigation, and so judge. Just like the ordinary citizen. The police officer has the rights afforded by Miranda. So in some cases of police officer shoots and someone dies. They can't be forced to give a statement because if they're forced to give that statement, then it's not admissible in court. Let me go to Eric Dagens because the other outrage this week, not only the the fact that Mr. Jones home was searched that this information that drugs were found was released. It seemed to be a way of sort of making him look like he was some sort of suspect he's in his own house, but the media's role in the fact that the Fox News affiliate tweeted that out elicited a lot of reaction. What did you make of that this week? Eric. Well, it's interesting to me about this. It does remind me a bit of what happened when Trayvon Martin was killed somebody years ago in Florida where I'm based, I have a book out called race baiter where I talked about how race a media works. And so I took a hard look at how the Trayvon Martin case became a national media issue. And one of the things that happens is when you have a deadly event like this, where there are only two witnesses, the person who was killed and the person who killed them..
