Black Lives Matter In Belize
"Once again, this is Oscar Fernandez today on the show we put the spotlight on Belize and how the black lives matter movement shines a light on how believes is history has been excluded from Central American history, and so we're joined today by Nicole Ramsey who's a Candidate in a Department of African. American and African Diaspora studies at UC Berkeley she has an article that came out last month in medium entitled as Remind Central America to think outside the box she joins us today over the phone. Welcome to show Nicole Ramsey. Thank you for having me. Excited to be here is good to have you with us. I couldn't my introduction brief because actually pulled it from your article regards to Belize Central America. Once again, the Arctic was entitled Belise Remind Central America to think outside the box and when the central arguments you make in your article is that the black lives matter movement and I took this directly from your article shines a light on how belise history has been excluded from Central America. So, with that in mind, let me just go right there to the beginning and ask if you could elaborate and state your argument by what you mean by the black lives matter as pertains to beliefs which in turn pertains to Central America. Yeah for sure. So what envisioning what I was in? When I came up with the article title you know those with everything that's going on. There's been a lot of discussion and in terms of black lives matter and what that means for black population living outside the US I find a lot of conversations especially. I'm really interested in like conversations that happen online. I was really I guess interested in how people were conceptualizing black lives matter as mostly an African American movement which you know there's a particular history and reasoning of why how black lives matter came in to being. particularly in the US. but it was it was just very interesting to see how mostly folks from Latin America. Caribbean. Europe other places. Outside saw that as distance from what was going on in their particular countries. So. In the case, of Central, America you know black lives have always mattered. There's always been struggles of On, the ground with black people fighting again, know the colonial administration and anti-black midst especially what's going on with Garifuna communities across central? America. So that's what I was thinking about. That's what I had in mind when I, came up with this article and it was just kind of talk about it later too because it's kind of like this long history of exclusion in the region and the region and how people conceptualize Central America so I thought in order for us to. Even. Delve into what You, know black lives. Matter Movement Looks Central America certainly have to acknowledge. Black Communities and black histories in the region I. so that's kind of where I was getting at and I'm a fan of history off it's kind of like a title things together. Absolutely we just had a show last week on the Gutty Funez on Duras and in a large way they play a central role. Belize as well. So we'll get to them once again during the course of the conversation. But with that said, there are other groups that make Belize very complex as far as this community is concerned, there's some other groups that need to be recognized. So I wonder if you could also explain the complexity of the Afro Belizian community in believes because not every black person in Belize is necessarily a Gutty Fuda, their other complexities and needs to be addressed here. Correct. Yes for sure. And that's even including myself I'm not guarantee now I'm what you would consider creole. So depending on. The vantage point, but you look at central. America play believes etc. Gua. Even think accent complaints with endurance creole just like black. Identity of black population mixture of blackness feeding back to the enslavement of large populations in the business. So thinking about that identity in believes to historic. Black Group are black creoles. And the Afrin Vision is getting food and I say black correal's because it's. It's common to meet somebody blond-haired blue-eyed of like, who visually looks why to also call themselves. And it's also the language that they also speak in believe. So there's a lot of complexity there and fusion So I really like to say black creoles because also like the history of creoles and believe ties back to kind of that enslavement period. And of course. When I was there last full for feel work you have legal whole bunch of other. black groups that are that have been in believe for quite some time you have like a very Pan Caribbean. migration and group within believe. So you can meet somebody from Jamaica. You can meet somebody from Barbados Trinidad. So that's also present there. and then recently you have a lot of immigrants from. The continent diamond a few people from Nigeria I. Think someone someone from Ghana, and then of course, from Haiti as well. considering migration Haitians to central. So there's like different levels of that. But in terms of like historic, it's black KRILL and offering digits Garifuna and I do like to. Talk about them within the compass of affable believers because there has been like a mixture between two. It's not unusual to meet somebody with a creole mother and A. Father vice versa So it kind of intertwined throughout but the cultures are very distinct and that's important to note they have a different history different time line of you know. Experience within the country which kind of work to conceptualize how they're viewed within beliefs but I think that's very important to also considering language racial formations. So yeah.

Sure first of all, thank you very much for inviting me to discuss this haven't discussed this in public manner like this. and. So just to give you the basics on May Twenty First, my dad had a stroke. And so he was hospitalized and during his hospitalization desks when they discovered that he had tested positive for the coronavirus. Now, knee him but five other members of my Dad's side family. Tested positive as well, and they all have very close in a suburb in DC called Wheaton Maryland. And so. Obviously I was keeping track and keeping inform with the hospital above my desk condition.

Unfortunately about four days later on the twenty eighth like at. One thirty in the morning I get that phone call and said phone call that we all. Dread. In. Our. Lives. In the middle of the night from the hospital, and they basically told me that during the course of that evening that his his His heart stopped three times.

Nice, at all I'm interested because. I. I feel as though that. I, think the word nerd gets. Really, batted around a lot and I think for me, it really is. Maybe I have just a really broad definition of it, but I'm wondering what it means to you in that I when I. I can tell when I'm getting I feel like it's technically nerdy when I when I get excited about the things that I get excited about that feel niche or feel just like I dove really deep like the things that. I can attribute months-long rabbit holes too like I've been watching in Corinth I've been watching truly every like scummy detective cry movie from like the seventies and eighties, and that's like I'm missing out on other. TV, shows that people are liking because I'm just finding those movies like that feels pretty nerdy, but it doesn't like that specifically, I don't think whatever tone panel at Comic Con, but it feels nerdy does it does it feel like there's a broad definition you feel like. Like it's kind of granular or yet go ahead. Yeah. Absolutely. I. Think like I was saying with. Mark. Mark being like a sports senator people being super into music, which is another one like if you were to talk to a journalist at rolling stone I, find that super nerdy like that. Being able to deep dive. Like you said, I also think a lot of people for actual nerds. It's they'll be like you mean, Geek, it's actually geek the what you're saying. Is You not. mean two different things but Yeah for me. So my introduction I would say like my quote Unquote Nerd Card would be anime and that's because I grew up watching to Nami and then kind of fell into a hole of like fan subs and dubs and like trying to get illegal anime that I could watch here I have Machida tattooed on me and I think a lot of in the anime community a lot of times they're like that's a mainstream anime. I'm also like I don't take it away from Star, wars people. Star. Wars is the most mainstream franchise in history period like you I always say this, but like you can get a trash can of it at target like its mainstream. Wouldn't take that away from the and I'm a star Wars Fan. But like I wouldn't say I wouldn't tell them that they're not because they're into the most mainstream thing ever Yeah, you. Heard on any mainstream thing though right like, yeah. You could be like a plant nerd like be so obsessed with plants and like or technically you're a geek you. Plant Geek. Yet. But it's like you could be. Why does it matter if it's mainstream? We'll because it's still real. One thing Steve. You think that's why I think it's there. One thing that separates them from you. Onto. But my friend, one of my favorite people in this community is Hector Navarro. He is an encyclopedic knowledge of comic books if you ever need and I do I. Hit em up. If I need to if I'm not going to go back and read this comic actor, what is about talk oh? So I can bring this up You know sometimes I'll do that and he only wants to if you're real nerd of your phantom, you'd actually be passionate in what other people to learn about it. You wouldn't get keep it and try to keep them from it. You'd be like Oh my gosh. Let me tell you about this thing you're GonNa, love it, but like I don't understand why they do why they like Oh, you know this thing, you're a piece of shit. Until. Such a he someone who could use all of his knowledge for bad and he doesn't. He's always just like. These are the issues you should check out or like, yes. Like you'd be superintendents. If you like X. Men, you'll love this and the anime world like. So that's how we should be. Yeah. Why I love people like that. Especially, because you know it's funny talking about, yeah. You can't get a star wars trash can, but also there's you know whatever at this point, there's nine. Saga. Movies, their spinoffs, there's stand-alones. There's cartoons I, and if you if you've seen all of Colin wars, does that make you more Than someone WHO's only seen? The the Trilogy Movies Ebb, and also the the enemy thing is really funny too because it's for a while it was so hard to find stuff I think access is so important to just a building a phantom or building awareness of things, and it's such a I don't know my favorite nerds are the ones who are like, Oh, you haven't seen this. Let me get you a copy of it immediately. Yeah, and that's like i. i. that's especially when it's like a hard to find thing I have. I. Have a an animated nerd buddy who is. Great at doing that stuff and I won't I won't say how he's getting them or where she showing them. But but but it's it's. It's just great to be able to to know someone who's like, Oh, I'd love for you to see this. Instead of I can't believe we haven't seen this. Yeah, and I want to say to I I. Adore I. Am Star Wars Fan, I Adore Star Wars, but there are people who like read the the novels. There are people who like you said, they watch all the animated shows and stuff in. So I do think there's different levels to it. But just tired of people act like this is mainstream. This isn't mainstream like who cares you know for me? If, something inspires you dvd like inspired me so much. I don't know why I was. So obsessed with it growing up, but I was I couldn't get enough of it in would read fan fiction of it. I'd look fan. Art. Of It I, you know. Fundation who owns the US versions? Who Does the US versions of it my hosting? GIG? Just because I knew so much about it. So by wow, you know. So it's just like I'm done I. There's too much going on in the world to care about being a real fan or real nerd or whatever. Yeah. Let's not why. Why can't we just like things not put ourselves in specific categories of how we like them. Especially now, because the only thing we can do is like things in our homes. Yeah. Also it's way cooler to like things than not like things like I'm always like how is that? I?.

Now because I feel like our episodes sound more professional cleaner than ever. But then when you get to the when you get to the just you and me stuff were really go new. Yeah. I. Actually Love the energy of that honestly I feel like that's what that's what we're. That's what the listeners want. They want the kookiest version of us. They want. They want the real stuff, the other stuff. Yeah. We'll keep it professionals buttoned up for. For interviews, we'll ask you real questions. We'll get down to the bottom of it, but you know when it's just you and me Dave, there's just true friendship and intimacy here, and we get to be our real selves. Let's just let it rip and that's not to say that we're not ourselves in our in the interview portion. We're just we're just you know what we're. I, think we're releasing the the the valve a little bit because we because we know that we can be completely unhinged around each other. That's kind of how a really feeling these days. We're grab too long. It's been four months of you know being socially distance in a big portion of that was super shutdown. So like we're just honestly I think this is. Is, some of my owning social interaction. Still I'm not quite in the real world as most people are right now. So this is this is what I live for this. Is that real stuff? Well, let's kick it to her interview because we had a really great one today. We really did she is a writer and actress, and she's a host literally every where she just sold an HBO MAC show I?

Beautiful Queens. For today. Let's not even question it. Let's just all be queens and let's see how that feels. Because right now, I got I'll admit to you and my Christian God. I feel like a queen. I. Love It. I. Think you are a Queen I also would describe you Danny as a Queen Hardcore Year Quyen. Yeah. That's just what I call my dog all the time. So now I just call everybody it. So cute I when I was telling people that you're gonNA, be on the podcast by like tweeting about it and putting it on instagram and stuff. I got more comments on your hot photo than I've ever gotten on my own hot photos. People were just like she's so hot I. don't even know her she's hot and I was like, yeah, it's so we because I, I was bullied a lot which I've talked about a lot like when I was in middle school. I. I was bullied a ton until I. Never felt hot. Have always been in a lot of therapy I'm still in therapy abandon therapy for over a decade. So it was kind of like this realization where in therapy was like a filter was lifted and all of a sudden. I was like Whoa. I felt like that movie jake or or whatever, what is it like ro? I'm hot well, and now it's just like I feel like thirteen going on thirty when she used. In that body and she's like, Oh, I love that dress because I have these great boost to fill it. was like one day I just realized Oh. Okay. I get to be. You can also I think anyone listening. You can just decide to be hot like you can just be like Fu I don't know if you're allowed to on here F you I'm Pat I don't care what you think in all. My friends have kind of stepped into that where they're just embracing it. Isn't it powerful? It's like. I really relate to that hardcore because I was like A. nerdy kid who really liked. Amphibians. E when I started to realize that I was, I was like very confused by it like I was like, wait what is happening, but then I got scared of being hot because people were mean to meet people are awful. Yeah. I think it's just because you embrace it. It really weird them out, but I've talked about this because it's like when I would like joke I had a really a joke about depression or whatever because. Because I'm just so heavily in it and when I would joke about my body or hating stuff about my body people would be like just like fishing for compliments you know. But then when I would embrace my body and be like look I love my full Luscious Lips I, love how sexy I look than. They would be like you're so full of yourself. So it was like you really can't win I was just like. I, you know live with depression. I'm going to celebrate my body I also, not always gonNA. Be This age, which is something I realized as I got older and older especially in this industry which like prizes youth so much I was like well, each year I'm GonNa get just gonNA accept that I get hotter like I'm just GonNa, put that out. and. Yeah. No. Yeah. I love that. Did you do besides therapy? Is there anything else you do in order to like sort of Own Own near like own your power and own your beauty. Well, what's really fascinating is I I do a lot like I think people think I work out more than I. Actually do actually don't work out very much, but I've been like weightlifting and there's a lot of photos of me where I'm just like jacked and I think that that find that really intimidating or ugly. I have people I was at the Star Wars premiered this past year and I posted a photo myself there. It was like really cool and somebody wrote you have the body of a linebacker and like I'm telling you when they want to tear you down, it just really intimidates people and. So, what I was going to say is I follow a lot of women. I follow a ton of women seeing women, loving themselves, whatever their body type is. I just adore that I think that they are smoking hot whatever their body type is, and so it's just kind of that's what I do is I surround myself with people really build me up and it's like it doesn't matter what my body looks like. But it was a lot of body more when I started to gain a lot of muscle and now it's like I've thick thunder thighs that it used to be made fun of, but it's like people love them and it's yeah. I was just GonNa. Say. I. I love everything. You're saying especially following a lot of women because my favorite. Any my favorite viral thing to see on twitter is any time somebody anytime like a woman will screen shot a man making disparaging comments about anything about any part of their being of you know like. 'cause I was going to say you look Jack Delivery linebacker if you posted, what were your arms looks small, you look. So Scotland. Can't win, but I love seeing a guy like some shitty opinion of some dude, and then you find. And then their screen shotted with a picture of their own program.

US arrests three Chinese nationals for visa fraud
"Lie about their status as members of China's military KP case. Brody Fernandez reports well, Katie, Three of those individuals have been arrested by the FBI, the fourth, however, a researcher from UC Davis Dwan Tang, who allegedly lied on a student visa form. When asked if she was a member of the Chinese military, well, she successfully fled to the Chinese consulate in San Francisco, where she's currently being granted protection by the Communist Party. Now the question is, Where do we go from here? Can't be Kay's legal analyst, Bill Portanova told me the situation. It's not anything new. The Communist government of China uses education visas and uses contractual agreements with businesses to being access to inside information technology research and so forth. And they use it to their own advantage in their own country, Of course, where they do not have any laws allowing for the protection of intellectual property or anything like that. So that means any technology or any research. The government of China gets their hands on Will they use it, and there's no way to sue them or even recover that research. In a statement said to Cabe a cave this afternoon, UC Davis officials did confirm Tang was conducting research in the Department of Radiation Oncology. I also found out TheStreet EAS were funded by the Chinese Scholarship Council, a study based exchange program affiliated with China's Ministry of Education. But are these four individuals who were charged possibly the only ones committing espionage? The Communist Party of China sends tens of thousands of people to the United States to infiltrate every level of society. How many of these people are students is a number that nobody knows. In California. There were 25,000 Chinese nationals attending the University of California throughout the state. This woman who has been charged is only one out of 25,000 but her being charged and these other people being charged, I think is the tip of an iceberg. Yeah, Kitty, that iceberg and represents the U. S China relations right now. And after this news breaking today, many think there will soon be a tipping point. And now with Tang under protection from the Chinese government in San Francisco, there's not really much hope for justice if she was, in fact committing espionage Well. If China was, in fact a country that played by international standards, there would be some sort of diplomatic discussion and resolution of the issue. Unfortunately, China cheat. And you can fully expect that China will deny she's there and then fully expect her to be smuggled out of the country. You know, Portanova says Unless the FBI was already heavily monitoring the Chinese consulate there is little hope Tang will be seen in a U. S courtroom anytime soon. As for U. C. Davis, they told me their school of medicine is providing all information requested by the FBI. And all other authorities who are continuing to investigate this case. All right, Kpk za Brody Fernandez there, Traffic and
Judge Expected To Dismiss Charges Against Los angeles County Social Workers In Death Of Gabriel Fernandez
"In L. A judge expected to to spend some charges today against four social workers charged in connection with the death of an eight year old Antelope Valley boy. That was Gabriel Fernando's tortured to death by his mother and her boyfriend. And the prosecutors felt that the social workers should have Dunmore to protect the child. Let's find out more as we go downtown l A. And here is our John Baird. The two former L A County social workers and their supervisors had been accused of child abuse and falsifying records stemming from the Gabriel Fernandez case and autopsy found the young boy had a fractured skull. Several broken ribs and burns over a bunch of his body and the boy's teacher testified the Gabriel had told her that his mom punched him and shot him in the face with a BB gun. The social workers were charged because the D A's office felt they failed to intervene and protect him. But a state appeals court panel ruled that the judge should have granted a defense motion to dismiss the case against the four and prosecutors decided not to take the case to the California Supreme Court. That's why the charges are expected to be dismissed today. The boy's mother is serving life without parole. Her boyfriend was sentenced to

Boys Double Guest Adam Gertler shoutout to Adolf, Hitler whose handiwork is all over the Doghouse? Danny I'm I WANNA talk about Doghouse but over break? You mentioned that you spent some time in a haunted house and I feel like. We have to dig into this a little bit. Yeah I've actually been in a lot of real life haunted places because I messed up and I enjoy that so I lived and when I mean I've been in the Whaley House, which is one of travel channels most haunted houses. Dallas is the one that has a door that leads nothing and stuff like that that you're talking about the Winchester House. It is the Winchester House. That's right. Sorry, but no. No I've also been to the witches ball in Ohio which I think like they buried a witch under this like huge marble wall to keep persona. It's crazy I've been a lot of places that you shouldn't be when I was. Was In college and I bought a house actually got married when I was really young. Because that's what you do, and Texas and we got married. We were like twenty, three, twenty four and bought a house in cost. Castle Rock Colorado which people from castle rock will be like it is haunted and also you can buy a house, or you could buy a house there a long time ago. not that long ago I wouldn't that long ago that I was twenty three, but. Our neighbors told us it was haunted. Remember they came out and they're like. Hi Nice to meet you also. This house is haunted and I. Remember thinking like this rude. Like I've just. My home with my husband and like we're newlyweds. If we're younger, we just graduated and how dare you? Just. Let me enjoy my pinterest board in peace and. The thing was fucking haunted like so every couple that had lived in there had divorced or broken up and spoiler alert. We ended up getting divorced and we had been together for six years. The House, so we inherited a rocking chair. It was like whoever was next in line to like have a baby was supposed to get this rocking chair and my. bridesmaid one of my bridesmaids. We didn't tell her. The House was haunted woke up in our guest room. Bloody murder that she saw this little blonde girl in the chair, just staring at her and I mean she was so terrified that she made me be in the room when she peed in bathroom because she couldn't be alone the whole weekend she visited us. And then another thing happened was my husband and I just turned into like monsters. We were like arguing all the time. It was just not normal for us. It was like this really bad energy and one time he was out on a business trip and We were just like yelling at each other, and I came home, and we had a canvas of a one of our photos our. Our engagement photos that everybody at our wedding signed in the campus was upside down. Wow, and he was out of town and our members thinking because I was so mad that my marriage was crumbling. I just looked at the campus upside down and I was like I. Know Like I. Don't fucking know I. Know and I took it off the wall and I like threw it in the closet. And Cruzi. We yeah when we did end up, and also we had two dogs would be barking things randomly in the night or the worst thing was not barking, but a real low growl like a real low warning like back away. Wally Wally will be like if I'm in bed or something. While he will by and then like the door will knock, he can sense when someone is coming over there. It's crazy. Yeah, so I. Remember when we finally went over, and we told that neighbor and we're like. Hey, we're getting a divorce She broke down crying. She was like I don't WanNa live across from this house anymore. Wow! That's crazy. This is like a movie. That is a good movie. The add Danny Danny by the way. Natalie just text me. She wants the address. The House next year wants to spend a weekend. Stay! Go stay at the Whaley House much closer and. Regis film before he was regis actually had to stay there when he was a reporter, and he said that he saw a woman crawl up the wall and was like I'll never stay there ever again, Ghost. I. Tell you. A lot of people have died in and around the whaley. House and it was something that I I found out about when I was in fourth grade. Because when you go to school in San Diego they take you there because it's historical. And then they're just traumatizing kids for the rest of their lives. Yeah that's terrified wild. We're Georgia's island, which is the the the lady in black which is like a island where the kept I think civil war prisoners why? The. Confederate soldiers but there was a I don't know the history of it anymore, but there was a there was supposedly haunted by lady in black a black dress. Yet haunted former prison. That's a real terrifying place. They scare the shit out of you. When you're a kid, they just allow. Why don't you tell the kids this stuff? You shouldn't tell the there's ghosts. There's gotta be a lot more anti ghost. There's going to be a lot more anti ghost education. When you'RE A kid. You think just like again like A. A blanket like just don't tell kids about go. It's like a reverse Santa Claus they know about, but they're not told about goes. You know ghost talk, Wow I. IT scared me for too long or they. At least they shouldn't teach ghosts. The ghost maybe that goes. Stocks should be folded in with a sex. Talk. You get when you're like twelve or thirteen. Son There's some things you should do over thirteen. My Dad tried to tell me how my dad. Give me the stock when I was eighteen still virgin. But I was just like don't what are you? Don't get Outta here I. don't need this now. Get the hell out of here. fucking eighteen years old. My parents are Super Catholic and they were too awkward. And embarrassed to talk to me about sex, so they just rented books from the library that they left out, and it was like you know those really gross awkward. Old Drawings from the seventies and everyone has way too much hair. Yeah. That's how I learned about sex. I'm. Let's get into the Doghouse Danny you. You yelped in some. What seemed like excitement, when I mentioned the Doghouse after the break It seems like there's a chain. You're enthusiastic about yeah. I mean it's super easy, and again me being a meathead.

I, understand why so many people just order out especially La. I order out all the time. That is, that's that's my Go-to, and that's bad I. Got I bought a? An Air Fryer in a in a pressure cooker. 'cause I'm trying to. Trying to cook a little bit more, but still order out too much. I'm a single man in my thirties, and just you know. It's easy. It's that sort of thing of like Ev. It takes more than thirty minutes to Prapai. It's too much for me. Yeah! It's I mean I. I'm in a fortunate position because I've lived with. The love of my life! My Angel for I Guess Sixteen Years Now so God we, we will We'll like collab- on a meal. At least makes me having to know that Natalie Wood fucking. fucking gag if you heard that. She's listening to this episode right now and just like flings her air pods out of her ears and into the gutter. In disgust. But we will collab- on a meal. Nellie is an excellent cook, and then she is also a. she's like great at like the like the prep shit, social sometimes like I can cook all meal on my own. I will often do that, but sometimes we'll collab- on something and like. Like, I'm basically doing like the food network chef. Thing of like I've got my fucking. Me's implants right here. I got all my fucking vegetables CRAPTON. I got my spices laid out for me. I just got assemble this stuff in heated up and it's ready to go, and meanwhile she's done some vegetable dishes. I'm just prepping the protein. Yeah sounds like you're just kind of getting away. It's like helping mommy out in the kitchen. I'm also. In. That I have no like time doesn't mean anything to me, so I will have stuff that you would have for dinner for breakfast. Oh I, just. Sustenance for me like there's no, and why would you like? Why would you put a limit on yourself like there? Why wouldn't you have what you were going to have for dinner? Actually it should be the biggest meal. Technically so I'm we I'm with you, but there is a thing where. The reason that I'm with us because like I'll wake up at eleven. And then eat lunch at twelve thirty, and it will be a salad or something and I. don't care, but if I wake up at like six am if it's like early early morning. I'm not going to get myself a salad or a sandwich Turkey sandwiches like I needed to be like. A BREAKFAST E I think before eleven am I never? I never want non breakfast food. You know what I've done a few times, and this is no longer relevant, because we're all housebound, but when I would I would have breakfast salad. When I was traveling, I just fixed myself up a salad first thing in the morning because I know is going to be on on planes, and then going to a fucking hotel, and then just eating shitty food everywhere like eating an airport terminals and. And in a hotel lobbies and so likely just having a little bit of nutritious food up top at the start of the day would would set me off on the at least at least mitigate some of the damage. I was about to Barak Fists Breakfast Salad. It just doesn't. It's just not right. You put in. The! Pants pancakes. Eggs and pancakes. Scrambled eggs and shredded Romaine. Frazier! I would have. I. Would have like Shrimp Salads. Same thing I wanted something like crispy and cool. Yeah, I'm not a chop. Salads are amazing. Those are definitely you could have any hour of the day right seven am I'm not I'm not touching the chop salad. I can't do it i. can't I just can't do it and I think it also depends on if you normally eat breakfast, would you normally don't Mitch? You're not a breakfast man. I'm not a I'm not.

You can do this trial for Franken and I always knew that she worked there because we kept in touch. L. is just really used for graphing celebrities. You know it was you know in my eyes.

He likes these himself as quite being really scarred. I think I think he a little For me we always go on. He was the type of person that the few give him. Shit back he kind of liked it because you get so many people his ass the fuck off the actually kind of just cannot trump is that we had And you bet about about your accent definitely indicate which scattered SOME CERTAIN STORE FERNANDEZ is go. Ko By way of what? Where is that coming? Yes so my mom is discussion like Dad Spanish okay. So it's not. It's not to on Grandad's Polish. Come to some kind of really missing skull just missing the openness it so even on your in the midst of the pandemic in What what are some of the things that you're doing so that once things open up again that you can sort of get back into the into the grind in terms of getting out there getting work. What are you doing now to sort of be ready for when things open up just like there's not a lot not a lot you can really do apart from apart from like emailing people working on your own stuff. It's like you can't really young give me no not really gonNA people would just GonNa beg no you the On for one do night. Just just philly working. You know working on this project. I think that's the best thing I can do. Because you know actually coming out with a body of worries like actually really happy with myself much to do as much done already. So it's like. Theo anymore is an Moore's and again I'm just thankful to have something to do. I think that what you're doing now is one of the most perfect things you can do is creating a personal body of work during this time that not only his interest work but there's just a testament to your ability to come up with an idea the challenging to see it through for anyone that's out there who is hiring. I think that's a. That's you know that's always kind of I would be doing like if I wasn't working as the constantly working on. You're working on whatever. Is You John? Because it's kind of frustrating at times because not all people can do that like you can't depending on what you're depending on. What kind of work you do. You can't always make work you know. You can't just spend a couple hours making more than that's I really enjoyed Is something that you can do all the time and you know if you have someone willing to like before aggressive than your coo math. And that's why do a lot of that my spirit time. But even like I've made some made some portraits done when a gain any works at knows actually getting me some like You know who's coming back different in different ways not said offer a couple. Different like competitions or wherever you know in this time. It's like the competitions popping up since like perfect for that but yeah I mean it's easy to get down to not do anything because you have to see a movie but I was always kind of Ohio. Which is you know you have to be has to be something all the time but I just I was guilty when all making something trying to think about something or you can go about making something like a start getting quite before actually started doing pictures and to do something. This is a good time to try and not naive until make note with the idea in mind those Oh you can try and make For anything not was just you know. Obviously you you're you WanNa do for you firstly cord thing but yeah you know have something. You're happy with snow not running in the same time. Has You know why not if you've been working hard before this anyways like he's I have like a couple of months to sit back even just use the tank to think of what you can. Do you know when you get to normally what you can do? The Malak Walkman that I ask. Each guest is asked to recommend another photographer and it can be anyone someone. You've long admired her someone. You've recently discovered who that photographer being. I think it'd be filled Why because he has he was one of the first people. I saw that blurred the lines between documentary and staged I remember seeing Hustler's and I bought the Duke. Confused the I I remember spending a day going through the pictures just studying a while. The hell he done with the lights and everything was just Cool it was like. Oh my God when you read it before but what about you know? The idea is always a documentary. The resell like this. Ah Crazy I was like the bag if it was even better because they had pictures of you know because I didn't have any money time and didn't have great equipment still don't really but like the back. The his his tests shows Polaroid's and polaroid can see where he's polite lights light series using and was just using little speed lights. Which will doctors on? That was the moment where I was like. God He's done he's made all of this was with just now like he's got the same thing you know Rhythm it makes think like you know there's not much of an excuse you know you can never blame equipment if you know what we're to do with it. I think that was so important to learn flat nose so nice because even watching him speak about it. I'll listen to speak about it. He he said Again I made so many mistakes in that you know. I didn't know what to Payment Flash Flash you know when you look at the pictures on where where mistakes you know because I would love to know what his you know what he thought were mistakes but yeah no so yeah.

"Why I have just a few like procedural questions I would like a charge and then that's contrasted with a working social worker who we ride along with out on a basically a well child visit. There's been a report of domestic violence. Where foster child to staying and we get to walk into that apartment with her watch. Her open all the cabinets watcher. Make sure there's food in the fridge. Please okay so what I need to do. Now is just a welfare track so I need to check out the house and the in the refrigerator. Your home for food. So I'm gonNA open this in your mind. Okay we're here commenting on what she's looking for. She's looking for signs of health and thriving and baby fat and and we see her. Turn on all the faucets in the house and it just seems like somebody doing their job. Well you know versus hearing this phone call with somebody who basically doesn't WanNa talk about even the systemic failure that led to this little boy's death. How did you get to go on that ride along? I mean I found myself wondering that viewer like that. Seems like it would be incredibly difficult to get that kind of access Brian. It was very difficult. Actually the most difficult part was getting any kind of access to dcfs. Or the Board of supervisors. I think it's probably important to note that they declined to talk to us. Or or anybody from the Board of supervisors which was really frustrating because of how big this case was with cable and that while we were filming this there were also a series of rapid series of of other deaths in the same area with very similar circumstances and their refusal. Talk to US was was pretty. I was was the was the biggest hurdle we had And but in this limited way we talked to them for I think it would be a year and a half or so Eventually they said we could go out and and go on a ride along. And you know it's important to note that I mean Garett just said this but this is a very difficult job and these people are amazing for dedicating the time and energy that they put into this. They certainly don't do it for the money. And so you know if done well. This is a really really critical function so I did want to put those things close to each other to understand and to contrast you know the various people that are engaged in this. Can you talk a little bit about how the privatization of some of these services changes the landscape? This is a story. We hear a lot around. You know the privatization of prisons around the country. But I don't think people think a lot about the privatization of the delivery of services. Essential Services like child welfare services. Yeah I mean Government agencies all over the place are involved in what they called private public partnerships. Where some of the things that I think. The public believes are being carried out by government employees like the processing of people who need their welfare benefits like the processing of people who need food stamps and other services it turns out that these things are actually carried out by companies. Like the one you see in the series which is called Maximus. It's a multibillion dollar all over the world and from every place from Saudi Arabia to the U. K. Two right here in the United States with like such a dystopia name to write companies like thinking about it doesn't you couldn't make up a worse like more dystopia and sounding name for over a company. That's whose decisions affect people in such a personal way. You know doesn't exactly exactly exude. You know something that's designed for the public good and and you know and as you see in their own documents that there's a very high priority placed on profit making in this assessment report that maximus carried out on behalf of Maryland regarding foster children. And how the state can obtain resources from foster children assessment refers to foster children as a revenue generating mechanism. I'm curious Garrett. You know you were the one For whom this name? Gabriel Fernandez jumped off the page and really started the ball rolling on what became a story of tremendous national importance. But it's also an incredible tragedy and I'm wondering what of this story are you still carrying with you as you continue your work? I know that you're working on different projects and and you're at Berkeley now. You're still carrying this with you. Yeah I mean you can't you can't let go of this. I mean the you know unfortunately as you see the at the end of the series the fatalities have continued I'm continuing to look at some of the major reasons why they're continuing to happen. And I had really made it a priority to try to look at child welfare from a number of different angles. You know there's a lot more going on than child fatality so I you know it's really important to also be understanding of the situations where children are too quickly removed from their parents. And you know that happens in Los Angeles as well it. Just because in this instance. They didn't act nearly quickly. Enough doesn't mean the same agency isn't moving way too zealously and another case just a short distance away you know. These are systems that way too often go unseen in Los Angeles and you know in big cities across the country. One out of seven children are reported to the child abuse hotline by Age Five and Los Angeles is chop protective services. Agency is almost as big as the LAPD. I mean think about how many stories and and news reports you've seen about an agency like the LAPD. But I would argue that chop protective services has you know it's touching this enormous section of our community and we are deploying thousands and thousands of case workers every single day. And we just don't see what they're doing enough Way Too much of this happens in secrecy and this is a. This is one of the biggies of my entire career. I mean I. Will you know th th to treat this topic seriously? It requires years and years of of work you know we're continuing to see very significant breakdowns and CPS agencies across the country We all know that fatalities are occurring at a much higher rate than they should be and figuring out why and being able to tell with granular detail. What's taking place takes a Lotta time and once you realize that you're able to do it in cases like this one You you feel a certain responsibility not to walk away. You feel the same Brian absolutely and I would extend that to all of our crew in all of our production team that worked on this. Yeah this was in the typical project in any way I think it stuck with everybody really powerful really emotionally. Intense is something about Gable story just provoked deepest the deepest of interest in connection and people Right off the Bat O'Brien. I'll tell you as a viewer. That's exactly how I'm hooking away from this film. The trials of Gabriel Fernandez is fascinating incredibly compelling gutting And I will carry it with me for a long time Brian and Garett thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me about this film. Thank you very much really appreciate it. And that's it for this week's episode. Next month we have director. Liz Garba Saen the talk about her. First scripted feature film lost girls until then.

"In this case on record you have all of these key people who are actively involved in the case in myriad ways. How did that work did you? Did you talk to them after The Gary Case. How did that all come together? We talked to a lot of them while it was going on. And then and then of course some some after the fact you know. Gabriel story really touched a lot of people and it sticks with people some of the first responders that were involved in trying to save Gabriel. Imagine what they go through on a day to day basis over twenty years and and they all said this was the most moving case that they've ever been involved with and and it's not closed yet and I think once people understood what we were doing and the story we wanted to tell you know they. They wanted to to talk about this. They needed to talk about it in some ways and I found that very very powerful one of the ways that the story advances really and a lot of the drama. In the way that you tell the story in the documentary Brian is through the coverage of the trial ours. Trial and there's really interesting legal machinations that take place at originally Pearl are. We're supposed to be sitting there together. Being tried by two separate juries. That didn't happen so he ended up having his own individual trial in. You had unbelievably at least to me. When we're I live. There's a period of time during which jurors are not allowed to speak to the media after they've served but you have incredible access to a number of jurors that sat in on that trial including a holdout juror who in both phases of the trial had to be turned like had to have his mind changed. Do you know what it was that ended up changing juror number seven's mind ultimately Both in the guilty to first degree or second degree phase and in the penalty phase of the trial. I found him. The holdout juror really fascinating because he is Very Analytical Guy. He was You Know He. I think had training as an engineer. he told me a story. I don't think we cut it out of the series but he told us a story when he had. I immigrated to the United States that he was during the Nixon impeachment hearings and that he was moved that even the president was you know a bound by the law which I found really interesting He just thought look this guy. He did this a horrific thing but he deserves us in a careful way looking over every single detail to make sure that that's exactly right and eventually The rest of the jurors convinced him to go that direction in the second penalty phase. He was also hold out on that the lone holdout on whether or not to give us our the death penalty and I think he had a kind of analytical approach to that as well that to to put him life in prison was not as practical as giving the death penalty. I think one of the things that makes this case. Stand out and one of the reasons why it became part of a national conversation The arrest of the four employees of dcfs who serve swirled around Gabriel's case. I found myself feeling conflicted about their specific culpability. Especially when you compare it to the culpability of other people other mandatory reporters other people who had contact with Pearl When Gabriel was living with her I'm wondering Garrett I'm not GonNa ask you to take a side on where you land on this but it is complicated right to think about the fact that these four people who were in a system that you reported out is broken are being prosecuted specifically in connection to this crime. It's one of the I think it's one of the hardest questions In the whole case I mean I think everybody who who looks at this case. Also lates between having empathy and sympathy for each of them but also recognizes that. They had a legal duty to this child. They were really the only way that he was going to be able to get out of that dangerous situation. And so this is the type of question where very smart reasonable empathetic people can come down on both sides. You know during your interviews. I heard Some of these case workers talking about certain cases as being linear cut and dry not thinking it was particularly complicated And you know could be handled through regular procedure but has the viewer I mean I think you're interspersed reminders. Of what exactly it is. We're talking about. We're talking about a boy who was tortured and beaten to death. It is hard to balance the sort of logistical wrote. -Ness of that office talk with what is actually happening in people's homes. You know what I'm you know what I mean by that. Yeah I think so. This is Bryan again. I think this is one of the reasons why we really we really couch. The story from the perspective of Gabriel into tried to get him into this as much as possible. This is a real person that that lived in the high desert north of Los Angeles and that came in contact with all of these different agencies and somehow his case and his story just pointed at all the fishers and all the problems in this system right now so I think I understand what you mean the the policy discussion. You know that's going on and and the discussion about you know funding and and WHO's the culpability? And all that stuff is sometimes a little disconnected from the actual human cost on the ground. And I think that's why we wanted Gabriel's presence in this series from the first episode to the last and I think in this is Garrett. I think human story of the case workers so interesting I mean. These are people who they're in a position that lends itself to some of the most extraordinary types of compassion fatigue. I mean they. Are you know every day? They're businesses child abuse and they have so many children needing their attention they have so many mandated tasks to carry out and they're also carrying it out in a department that you know let's be real is not performing at a very high level. It was just a couple years before. Gabriel died that the department did one of its rare studies taking a close look at how these cases were actually going and they found that only two thirds of the cases. Did they ever interview the child alone? Who was the alleged victim of abuse? They also did incredibly shallow investigations. On average fewer than two witnesses were interviewed for each particular call to the child abuse hotline saying that kid was in danger. So when you when you're looking around the office and seeing everybody else doing investigations and a quality of work. That isn't very good you. You know you can't help but imagine that that brings you down as well. Yeah you know the interview that we have with Gregory Merit. Who is a supervisor here? Who was facing could have been facing up to ten years in prison. You know I think that when we look at his story. I hope we don't blink at the failures that were here I hope we don't ever shy away from the clear problems that that happened. In the case of Gabriel but I also think that when you hear him talk and hear him his version and tell his story you know. I think you may have some sympathy for that. You're saying that you're ultimately responsible for about two hundred fifty to three hundred. I think the most children I had at any one time was about two hundred eighty children. How DIFFICULT IS INSECURE? Track of that many cases you can't that's why you have social workers keeping track of that many cases and you don't know every case that you ought to only because the fact that there's so many and my workload was so immense. Nina when you hear his story directly you'll have some sympathy for it Again not that. He wasn't at fault or were that there weren't problems here There clearly were. And then there's separate question is where to those problems go into actual criminality and so we ask all of that. But I I do think that the complexity of of good and evil applies here too. Well I think one of the most beautifully constructed parts of the documentary is episode. Five opens with you know we hear that investigator from the. Da's office calling pat clements and how.

"She saw change in him in the last few weeks and months of his life you also have his teacher incredibly moving interviews about the suffering that you know. They saw this little boy going through the first incident that I became aware that something was a normal to start asking me a couple of questions. Ten normal for your mom with a belt on like whoa yeah. Some parents do that and then he said you know but is is a normal to bleed. I'm just it's it's really interesting to me to think about. Framing this huge story around this truly horrific case. How important was it to you that the audience understand who? Gabriel Fernandez was beyond his being a victim of torture. It was really important to hear the voice of the teacher and what she had seen in what she had thought on what she had tried to do. And and one of the most heartbreaking interviews that we did I think was Kiara and astor a few questions and let her tell us what she thought in what she went through and what. She was an what she saw. He was nice to other people especially students in class. But that's until he started to be an APP say he was telling the students in this class that his mom's boyfriend was hitting on him. And that's when you just started being kind of a little bit me because what was going on so that that part was really really important just to understand. Who Gabriel Fernandez? Was this eight year old boy in the high desert north of Los Angeles And during his life his voice was ignored. There are only a handful of people that saw and heard and thought about who he was. As a person I would put the security guard in to that category. The person that tried to raise the alarm At a sort of welfare office that Pro Fernandez had gone into with with the rest of the kids to that there were so many chances to intervene in that weren't taken and so putting him central to the story into the series I think was critical. Gabriel had two. Other Siblings Ezekiel and Virginia. But why do you think? Pearl any sorrow focused on Gabriel for the abuse so we talked to a couple of experts in the film that that described As sort of scapegoat process in which oftentimes the kind of the younger or the kind of child is perceived as weaker in some way Often becomes a focus of abuse and And so we try to unpack that a little bit in the in the series as well just to expand on that a little bit more I've looked at a lot of child. Fatality cases an pattern. You often see is that the abuses focused on one of the children disproportionately and it's oftentimes the child who was separated from the caregiver for the longest period of time. And it's also the child who expresses a little bit of rejection following reunification and we know in Gabriel's case he fell into both of those categories. The siblings had had remained with per offer much greater portion of their lives. And when Gabriel was reunified with Perot after she took him back from the grandparents. He said that he wanted to go back to his grandparents. And that is often times. A risk factor because the parents don't have a way of dealing with that rejection and they sometimes lash out in a way that can be Abusive email. I imagine that as you were making this film and even geared as you're writing your stories for the Times I mean there is always this temptation and we saw it. Play out in some of the rhetoric in court to take People like a sorrow and Pearl and just say monsters right like unmitigated evil. And it's also I think. Difficult to overcome that temptation to just tell a two dimensional story about the abuser. And you really I think in this documentary make a very good faith attempt Through some of the witness testimony we see at trial. And then some of the exploration you do about Pearl's own life to not excuse but sort of flesh out fuller portrait's of these adults. Brian can you talk about that? A little bit. And and if you found that challenging Yeah first of all. Thank you for noticing that we did spend a lot of time trying to understand Adjara Aguirre and Pearl Fernandez and taking everything we could find in court. Records were There was an interview with. I think therapist at one point in this question of evil which came up in the courtroom. You know there's evil in this courtroom and it's sitting right over there and this notion of good and evil that some people are just Kinda born evil. Did you know that was something that kind of emerged as something? We wanted to look at it and think about that a little bit and you're right not not excusing it. But understanding where Pearl came from the challenges she faced and the difficult that she was going through At the time was really really important I think to get a full picture of this Same with the sorrow Gary. Some of us are gear as family wouldn't talk to us So we tried to include what was presented in court that fleshed out his personality. His life Who he was as a person we try to present as much of that material as we could so there is this question about where it is such a horrific act come from what causes people to do something like this and and we didn't think it was simple. One Line that we have at the very end of the peace is the question you know where where does evil come from and we have people speculating that yeah I mean there are times in? Which evil is there is evil in individuals but oftentimes? It's the it's the result of a system that is broken and they outcome is evil but not necessarily the individual components of that system. And you do see evil or child abuse doctrine. You're also seen anger and frustration and poverty. And what am I GONNA do? And I'M GONNA hit my kid because I'm frustrated but I believe the ultimate evil in this world is knowing what's raw seeing what's wrong and looking away now. It didn't seem like a sorrow Gary had been Arrested or tried for any crime like this before he met Pearl and it seemed like some in the documentary were intimating that it was then dynamic of the relationship with Pearl that was part of the recipe of him committing this crime Is that what you're reporting showed to Garrett that he was you know for lack of better word clean before this or was there more to the story there that we didn't see in the film I was never able to find any instances of past history of violence or any criminal history to SRO. It seemed like the the record for parole was darker much earlier and more and much more pronounced and you know obviously sorrow had established a clean enough record to be able to work with the elderly in a in a retirement home and he was also able to pass a licensing test to become a security guard in California so for intents and purposes he had a he had a clean record before he met payroll and he was liked. I mean we saw that in the testimony in the sentencing phase like the people who knew him from his work at the nursing home like really liked him and they said he was a good and kind and patient person. Yeah the people that did talk to us is Brian about. Nato did describe him in very kind of affectionate terms. You know. It's it's probably important to know too. That was from an early part of his life. That there had been D- D- we didn't find people in the few years before this before the incident A lot of those people didn't talk to us or we couldn't find them That sort of thing but the does seem like there was some affection for him as he worked in the in the various jobs he had Brian you mentioned earlier that you started making this film before the case had been completely adjudicated which honestly surprises me. It doesn't surprise me. In terms of the fact that I can see the access the courtroom footage it seems very a contemporaneous what was going on. But what surprises me About hearing that is the access you got to all of the key characters to help. Tell the story episode one opens in such a moving way with this nurse. Who tells us about the evening? That Gabriel Fernandez was brought into the emergency room and the documentation if his injuries. You also have Jonathan Hitomi. The prosecutor.

"This was the case that has followed me from that night. It's still hard to believe. Two people did all those horrible things to him. Gabriel Fernandez was at the time of his death. Eight years old. That was my friend in a really caught because it was his parents who took his life. Hi Brian thanks so much for joining me. Thank you for having us and Gareth arrive. Thanks so much for talking with me. It's great to be here. I really wanted to just bring one thing right up front here because when I was reading about this documentary before I started watching it I was somewhat girding myself for a difficult watch which I don't WanNa say it isn't it definitely is that but it's also incredibly compelling Dare I say kind of binge -able because of the way that you chose to thread this story together. Brian has the director. Can you just talk about how you approached making a series that people would want to watch and binge when it is built around such a difficult story? Yeah well I guess it kind of goes back to how I found out about the story myself. I found out about Garrett's work. He was working at the investigative reporting studios in Berkeley formerly with the La Times and and he was working with the friend of Mine Bergman and they basically said look you should really look at this story and we were able to get into the courtroom and we're able to start filming Pretty soon after that just inside the courtroom in the trial of a sorrow gay and it was immediately apparent that this was a really really compelling case just as the details were coming out in the courtroom. The story of Gabriel pointed to so many other bigger picture issues that As the mystery started getting kind of deeper and deeper about this I understood that this was something that would kind of fuel you know it would take some time to figure out and would just be more and more interesting as we did and more and more relevant as we went along Garrett. How was it that this story jumped out at you and you were able to really report it out. I mean we see in the documentary. That sort of The downsizing or moving of the L. A. Times there's a lot in it about the importance of reporters doing what you were doing at the time looking sort of beyond the log lines and the reports that are put out by the PR Latkes at all these government agencies. Did you know immediately that there was something there? When you saw this name on that page I knew there was pulling GonNa be something there and that it was going to be incredibly difficult to get through by this time. I had been covering child fatalities and you know all the other issues that face an agency like the Department of Children and Family Services for a period of time. I knew at this point that a child who had been under the agency's watch died about you know two or three times a month. They had a case like this and I also knew that when a homicide takes place with child and La about half the time there's dcfs History Department of Children and family services so it wasn't a complete shot in the dark that there was some dcfs history in this. But I also knew that getting like a a really detailed and specific chronology of what had happened was going to be incredibly difficult. There's so much. Secrecy surrounding these cases they have confidentiality laws that were established to Preserve Children's privacy. Which you know which I think we can. All agree should exist to some degree but when a child dies all of those confidentiality rules are enlisted for a new purpose which is to oftentimes hide. What government workers had done in a case so the essential report as you saw in the in the series was very very tightly held the pathway to getting any public records related to this death was going to be long arduous and and frankly was going to take so many more months that people's interest in the case would probably have waned by then and so it was. I just knew it was going to be really really hard to figure out what happened here. What are the caseworker? Stay what happened the next day and building that together you know to be honest caught me by surprise that I was to do it. It's probably worth noting here. That part of this is the result of fairly courageous whistle-blower as well Which a lot of stores have that people who are concerned on the inside that come forward and at risk to themselves and this is a case of that as well. I can't think the sources enough I mean they went to such extraordinary lengths to Get the story out another's over the years and at very significant personal unprofessional. Risk documentary opens in this case with a hard look at this board of Commissioners. I'd love to hear your take on why you think you know these entities and the way government is run and dollars are allocated and decisions are made. Can you just talk a little bit about reporting on that institution? Sure so I mean I think Los Angeles County government is one of the least understood government entities in the country and also one of the most important. It's a county government that you know serves ten million people. These members of the Board of supervisors are responsible for the you know. Essentially the safety net. You know there. There's only five elected officials who governed this over thirty billion dollar enterprise and I. I dare to say that you know. I think if you asked people on the street who their supervisor was it would take a long time to find someone who knew there known as the five kings and Queens of Los Angeles but people don't really have a very clear understanding of what they do they. Typically you know it's been a long time Sense any of them went onto further elected office after they were associated with The board partly because there have been so many problems with the safety net in La. I mean we've had just incredible breakdowns in the public hospitals which are governed by The supervisors we've had tremendous problems clearly in the Department of Children and Family Services and It's the type of thing that so important that it works bright but it's not the kind of thing where you get a lot of news coming out of them because You know the the meetings are incredibly long. They're boring they start out with a bunch of awards that they're giving to county employees and all the really important stuff like You know the child fatalities that are taking place or the fact that someone died on the floor of the public hospital and nobody was carrying for that person. Those things typically are not put on the agenda and you know the important decision making happens behind closed doors Garrett. It was really heartbreaking to me that it seems like Gabriel. Had a chance I mean his life you know began his. His mom didn't want to raise him so he was living with his uncle and then with his grandparents and it seemed like he was doing okay but then larger forces have combined to change his circumstances. Can you just talk about what some of those forces were like? How did these forces combine that? He ended up living there while. I think it's because the authorities took a hands off attitude for so long. I mean you know originally. He was living with his grandparents and formerly. Because Perot is off doing other things and then according to court testimony. She wanted the welfare. That would come from having another child in the house and when she went to retrieve Gabriel. Gabriel's grandparents called the police Said that she was an unsafe person and that they wanted the police to intervene. And to take Gabriel way or at least to enshrine his informal situation at their home In a more efficient way but what they ran into what so many people ran into over and over again which is really the only entity that can remove a mother's parental rights and can petition. The court to do that is child protective services and the police decided not to call. Cps into the picture at that point later when CPS was called they took a you know a fairly hands off attitude as the series. And you know I think that this plays out similarly to you know how many family situations play out in someone. A child goes to live with relative. then comes back and all of this is done. Pretty unofficially without a lot of government intervention. One of the most moving interviews in the documentary is actually. I sort of pair them together. You have Kiara Gabriel school friend. Who Talks about you know being his friend. She documents on film all the things that that.
