"He said. He said, quote. I find it hard to believe. And I'm not defending Derek Sheldon in any way, But I find it hard to believe first of all that he intentionally meant to kill George Floyd that being said his actions were uncalled for. He also went on to say I don't care what color the person is on the street. I don't know what led to that video that we saw where his knees on his neck but the man had thrown in the towel. So far. His comments are sparking some pretty strong backlash from other players. Former Pro Bowl wide receiver Steve Smith Addressed farms comments with an Instagram post saying I have so much respect for the career. You had, however, on this subject you Mr Farber, stf you which means shut the You know what up? Respectfully real talk, You privileged ass their southern There's other former players that have made the same statements. Here's where Brett Farve, I think is missing the ball. Now, if you don't believe that Derek Shelvin deserved murder charges, and you don't believe that he knew what he was doing. I guess that's one thing. But we've seen officers in the past. And when you look at Derek Sheldon, you look at his hand in his pocket. You look at that smirk on his face. You see that? Clearly he was enjoying putting his knee over George Boyd's neck. And then you're Brett Farve days after the verdict. Making these types of statements. People are going to get very upset. You could say to yourself well, Brian, everybody's entitled to their opinion. Yes, everybody's entitled to their opinion. But I think Brett Farve is privileged. I don't think Brett Farve truly understands. That systemic racism exists. I mean, it's It's confusing to me. Why people would say it's hard to believe. That Derrick Sheldon intentionally meant to kill George Floyd. Maybe that's true. Maybe that's not true, but I don't find it hard to believe I can find it very easy to believe. And here's why. When George Boyd's body goes limp. Any normal reaction from a police are would be to take your knee off the neck. Should have been on there in the first place, but take your knee off the neck. Check the man's balls. It's not hard to believe Brett Farve because Derek Shelvin kept his knee over George Floyd's neck. After George Floyd took his last breath, and he wasn't moving. Don't think Brett Farve is the smartest guy in the world. He never struck me is an extremely intelligent person. But he certainly has the blinders on here. Now, if you don't think Derek shoving intentionally killed George Floyd, That's a conversation that's worth having, But to say, it's hard you can't it's hard to believe. Why is it hard to believe we all saw that nine minutes and 29 seconds? We all saw the video, and that's why a lot of people are going after Brett Farve for statements. Listen, there's a lot of people going after LeBron James for his statements and rightfully so. You know, I thought that was justified. I thought LeBron made a very big mistake for his tweet about that officer. I think people have a right to go after Brett Farve is well here because I think it's mind blowing to me anyway. It's mind blowing When somebody's body goes limp. Forget about the fact that Sheldon had his knee over George Floyd's neck when somebody's body goes limp. And they're not breathing. And clearly, Sheldon had to know that And you keep your d over that man's neck. You don't check his pulse. You don't try life saving measures. You keep your knee on the neck, and it takes Um, one of the E. M s workers to ask chauffeur to take his knee off of this man's neck. And that's when he does it. How do you come to the conclusion that it's hard to believe that Sheldon intentionally Could not have tried to kill George flight. I don't know how you come up with that conclusion just based on the video itself. Yes, I think what Brett Farve said was wrong. I mean, I don't understand. He also went on. Ellie. Wires, Andrew Klavan show. Far one on there, and he said he felt sports were becoming too political. And fans that stopped watching because of athletes talking about stances on issues, he said. I can't tell you how many people including yourself, tell me I don't watch anymore. It's not, you know and again, he conceded, it's about politics. That's why people aren't watching. I think it's very easy for somebody White to dismiss everything and said, We've had a few callers like that. It's easy for people that are white to dismiss players taking a knee and saying, I don't want my politics and sports First of all during the game, there's no politics, so I don't know why people keep saying that the players that are taking in New York taking any before the national anthem most telecast that I watch most sports that I watch could be MBA could be hockey could be baseball. They don't even show the national anthem. So when people said, I don't want politics, you're not getting politics and sports during the game. They're not doing anything. We're not talking about it. They're talking about the game. They're playing the game. So when people say that it's just a cop out in my opinion. Don't want politics and sports. I'm gonna tell you something. Police brutality should have nothing to do with politics that has to do with human lives and right and wrong. You know what? When is Brett Farve ever, ever gone on Social media and one is Brett far ever, ever done an interview? When does he come out? And when is he said, God, we gotta end this police brutality We need to have our minorities need to have a better relationship with cops. Cops the devil literally. He never talks like that. He always says I just don't wanna talk about it. People that don't want to talk about these issues are part of the issue themselves. These uncomfortable conversations need to happen more. Now I don't find it uncomfortable at all. Talking about these issues. I find it very comfortable. I enjoy talking to friends of mine who happened to be black. I enjoy listening to them. And I like learning and educating myself on what black people have to go through in this country on a regular basis, even black people who are extremely successful what they have to go through. But then there are people like Brett Farve who just dismiss it who don't want to talk about it. I don't want politics injected in my sports. Okay, First of all, stop complaining. Just don't watch If you're gonna be a whiner, that's number one and number two. I find me a sport on television. Basketball, baseball hockey. Whatever the case may be NFL find me a sport where the players are talking about politics in the middle of the game, or the announcers air constantly talking about politics. In the middle of a game. They're just they're not doing it and either happens before the game during the national anthem. Or maybe I don't know. Somebody says something after a game, But in the middle of the game, it's about the game. So again, these people that talk about I don't want my politics injected in my sports. To me. It's nonsense. Brett Farve is one of those guys. He is privileged. There's no question about it. I can understand why there are many players in the NFL better upset with Brett Fire with former players and current players that are very upset with bread for me, just please shut up when it comes to this issue. Because he's wrong. He's entitled to his opinion. I'm not going to tell him to shut up and throw football, but he's wrong. All right. We're gonna take a quick break. And when we come back, Channel eight sports very own.

"It is first year evidence in law school you do not allow evidence is a judge that has nothing to do with whether the case is true or not All it has to do with this how bad you felt about the case. All that is is prejudicial. And when you see on TV people say that's certain information is prejudicial to the jury. What they mean is that it is not relevant or pertinent to the guilt or innocence of a particular party in the case. Justice. It would have been prejudicial to simply talk about George Boyd's criminal background without any reference to the case, because it didn't have any new of anything to the case. It is absolutely prejudicial to have witness testimony on how upset they personally weren't how they couldn't sleep because they saw George Boy died. That's true for presumably tens of millions of people who saw the tape of George Boy dying in the first place. None of that should be allowed in court. That's gonna be an issue on appeal. There'll be issues on appeal, for sure with regard to the treatment of the jury by outside forces. It's my contention that this case never should have held in Minneapolis in the first place. This is like a perfect textbook case of when you transfer venue. Minneapolis is the site. It is the epicenter of racial conflict in the country. Right now, it is the epicenter of all attention in the country right now, and it is made up of a jury. The jurors are members of the community who are gonna have to deal with all of that fall out, which, of course, makes it very difficult to have a fair and impartial jury of your peers. If you are Derek Children. There could be a lot of issues on appeal here is the prosecutor laid out his case, and what was going to say about the prosecutor's case is that was very emotionally laden. Most of the prosecutor's case was not about laying out. He went on for a couple of hours. Most of his case was not about laying out the fact by fact. Moment by moment, Timeline of what happened was shoving employed because that actually doesn't cut in favor of the prosecution. Most of it was about the basic idea if you just watch the tape, you know exactly what happened. And that, of course, is not the whole story. As the defense said, So here is the prosecutor concluding with? I don't know something from Dr Seuss's The Grinch. Here we go. You were told. For example. That Mr Floyd died. Mr Boyd died because his heart was too big. You heard that testimony. And now having seen all the evidence haven't heard all the evidence. You know the truth. And the truth of the matter is The reason George Floyd is dead. Just because Mr Sheldon's heart was too small. Okay? I mean that that's very emotional, and it's gonna make a lot of tweets light up with joy. But is that really a value to the jury? I mean, again, the case for recklessness, the case for it outright malice is pretty low here. The case for felony assault, I still think is kind of low the case for recklessness you might be able to make on a manslaughter charge, but but this sort of No emotionally laden stuff. I don't know. It doesn't say anything probative to me What the prosecutor did you when he was discussing the charges, you put up a chart of the charges against Shobin. Explaining the elements of the various crimes. This chart actually is useful to understand what exactly is happening in the case. So murder in the second degree there therefore, elements one. The death of George Boyd has to be proven. Okay, well. Is that so? That would be proven. The second element is that the defendant's actions were substantial causal factor in Mr Ford's death. Fact that other causes contributed to the death does not relieve the defendant of criminal liability. Okay, so there's this is where I saw him at the disagreement on causation. The defense is going to argue substantial causal factor means That it has to be the chief causal factor right? There could be other things that are involved. Just like in the case that I was mentioning before where the Robert jumps had the mother jobs out of you on the subway platform subway. The kills you if you fall off in the subway runs over, But the mugger is the substantial chief factor in your death because it is his fault that you got frightened and fell onto the subway. Track get book. The prosecutions are doing something different, which is that if you are just any factor almost in the death of somebody, then this means that you're guilty. I think that that's kind of unsustainable on the legal basis. The third element of murder in the second degree is the defendant at the time of causing the death of George Boyd was committing or attempting to commit the felony offensive assault in the third degree, saying the defendant assaulted George Boyd intentionally applying unlawful force deployed without his consent, resulting in bodily harm. And the defendant inflicted substantial bodily harm on George Way, Both of those elements turned out. Because again, there is no actual autopsy results showing that there was damage to George Boy's trachea, for example, or that he was deprived of oxygen to his brain, specifically because of the because of the so called suppression hole that was being used on George Floyd. And the notion that he was using a form of suppression hold that was not allowed by Minneapolis PD is not true in the Minneapolis PD playbook. No element to defend attack took place on or about May 25th 2020 and head of him County. Okay, so murder in second grade. I think it's very hard to meet all those standards Murder in the third degree. It has five elements. Two of them are the same. Right. You have to prove that he died. You have to prove when he died, okay? But then, and the substantial causal factor element is the same as well. Murder in the third degree, says the defendant caused the death of George buoyed by an intentional act that was eminently dangerous to other persons. But it wasn't eminently dangerous. The other person's that's the entire thing. Right. So this this charge does not apply it all. I think you can't prove second degree. I think third degree This does not apply. Then you get to manslaughter in the second degree, and this one is a lot looser. Here. You just have to show that the defendant caused the death of George Floyd by culpable negligence whereby the defendant created an unreasonable risk and consciously took a chance of causing death or great bodily harm. And here you don't have to intend that your conduct be harmful. All you have to do is be reckless, And this is where the defense was focused in on the crowd right that their defense to this was Children was distracted by the crowd didn't know what was going on under his knee, because again he's not looking down in charge. Boy here you can see on the tape. He's yelling at the crowd. The crowd is yelling at him. Yeah, she reaches for his mace and all of this So that's the prosecution's case. I think that it is very, very weak when it comes to the murder charges. I think that it is more arguable when it comes to the manslaughter charge. Meanwhile, Eric Nelson, the defense attorney, he made his case. He said. That voids death beyond anything else. It just was not Children's fault. Just not now, honey and a root factual level. This show Vin was not The substantial factor in in the death of George Floyd..

Jim Pasco is the executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police and has been meeting with administration officials, though the group supported former President Trump and the general election. Pascoe says he believes the president is well suited to bringing together groups that don't see eye to eye. He has still has enough credibility in the long Force, Mint community, and I believe Credibility in the civil rights community that ideally position him to at least try with the potential for success.

Supposed to question Why do so many black people in America wake up knowing they could lose their lives? Now is the time for racial justice. That's the answer.

Well, you know, that was a good morning, Reverend Jackson and Santini and anyone else? Um, you know, 11 Jackson in looking at the facts of the case. This is what we see with police brutality cases all the time. But I felt particularly in this case where we had a video. And just as the prosecutor said, Just trust your eyes. I knew that were there. Two vehicles that Do this, but it could be a descent they were going to have to shift Really shift the blame on George Floyd, because if he trusted our eyes Hypothetically. Theoretically, people would've Bible. This is a trap. Of course this is going to be but just haven't been, you know, Lawyers of 34 years and seen these cases. And also seems civil cases that are better similar. I knew that they were going to come up with evidence because all they needed to do was create some doubt. Standards so high to convict similar cases, especially for police officers, because in the mind our public opinion believe it or not, police officers were given a pass. They really are the jury. They're given a path and so you have to really demonized the police. And secondly, Two to even begin to infiltrate in the minds of most jurors that there was some wrongdoing because they're going to give the police a path that's like how the glucose balance has been broken down the police Does that matter? Um, as I think it does. I think it does not. I think. You know, it does have an impact. I will say that this trial has been one of the best. Ride cases from a prosecutor's standpoint with police brutality, however. However, Reverend, Even with all of that there are two sides to every pancake and what we've been seeing is that pancake batter infiltrated in the cross examination because of the defense hasn't even put up its case. And what we're talking about now is George Boyd. Medical Condition, George. So it Floyd. Drug abuse George Floyd personally history All of that has come out through. Prosecution witnesses based on cross examination, so they're building clear theory, and they're pushing their theories through Each of the prosecution's witnesses, and that is really how they demonize George would be ever before. They even get a chance to put on their case, even though we've had some of the strongest, the most compelling evidence That without a question without a question. Towards Freud was murdered. Derek shopping. This is not something that people would you if you trust your eyes, That's what you're going to see. But that's not enough. It simply not enough because they're injecting.

Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, even though comments since All kind of sense were pointed the fact that Derek Shaaban committed a heinous crime would luckless disregard of the life and liberty. George boy, and it doesn't matter to me, you little change Robert Robert, if one juror objects Is there recourse beyond the trial? I don't know what we have double jeopardy laws. So if he is, ah acquitted or there is a hung jury, and there's not a a conviction that, um there. Are there some recourse. For example, they call a mistrial than they could retry the case. But if he's acquitted in the case, or they cannot come to Ah, decision then there will be Very difficult to try him again on the same charges. There would be federal charges you available of the Department of Justice. The fact that for the voice on that we have on record, but those that was the primary for a formal records of the state charges don't stick. Mm Reverend. Why don't you introduce Spike Moss?

Son of a you murdering scum boom and just shoot him dead right there. Would that make everybody happy? Are you reading my mind right now? I must be. Here's my crazy theory like I don't think this will happen. But if they're going to riot, no matter what the outcome of the case is, what if, what if the suspect gets murdered in the courtroom? Then what is the outrage community do? We're thinking just like him, Dan. You admitted it in front of all these people. Look, I'm not suggesting I want that to happen. I'm just asking. They're all waiting for this trial to end taken riots. Right? So what happens that would have to shut it down, right? What happens if Derrick show Vin gets assassinated in the courtroom? Do they still riot? This is a big hypothetical. I wish no harm on any One. I'm just saying Any number of things could happen, and they're going to riot no matter what. But what if the craziest possible thing happens? Well, you know what? Make it even crazier. One of Cardi B was the one that did it when they be awesome, John, You got anything?

"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes. The defense attorney there, obviously giving clues about the kind of arguments he's going to make when it's his turn to present his case that show been feared for his life that he was dealing with the dynamic situation. Struggling suspect an angry crowd. And real quick. When do we expect the defense to start calling their own witnesses? Well. The prosecution is expected to wrap up their case by the end of next week. And then it'll be the defense's turn. We expect starting the following week that is NPR's Adrian Florido in Minneapolis. Thank you, Adrian. Thank you, Elsa. Critics say that George is controversial New election law restricts voter access and disproportionately effects people of color and in protest Major League Baseball announced today It will relocate the summer's All Star game and draft out of Georgia and under pressure from voting rights advocates. Major companies like Delta and Coca Cola have issued critical statements. Now. Stetson University law professor Ciara Tourist Spellissy studies the influence of corporations and lawmaking earlier today, I spoke to her about what she found striking about this wave of corporate criticism. One of the things that's remarkable about the new statements from Delta and Coca Cola is that they have changed positions a few days ago. They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior. Ciara Torres Spellissy is a professor of law at Stetson University in Gulf Port Florida. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. There is a new attempt to bring the U.

For Air Force Leader, Making Video On Racism He's Faced Was 'The Right Thing To Do'
"General Lloyd Austin is confirmed as the next secretary of defense, He'll be the first African American to hold that position. His nomination comes as the U. S military, like much of the rest of the country is grappling with issues of race after the killing of George Floyd and the protests that followed. Which brings us to another general Charles Que Brown. Over the summer, he became the first African American to lead a branch of the U. S military. He is the chief of staff for the Air Force. As his confirmation hung in the balance. General Brown chose to speak out about George Floyd's death, even if it cost him his promotion. Here's an excerpt from that video message released in July when he was still Pacific Air Force's commander. Think about how awful I am with emotion, not just for George Floyd. But the many African Americans that have suffered the same fate as George Boyd. I'm thinking about protests in my country. Tis of thee sweet Land of liberty. Equality expressing Arctic exploration of independence and the Constitution that I've sworn my adult life to support the fan. Thinking about a history of racial issues in my own experiences that didn't always sing of liberty and equality. I asked General Brown why he needed to deliver that message. I talked to one of our sons. Who was he went to Washington Mercy in ST Louis s O. His freshman year was Ferguson. And so he experienced that. And then he lives here in Washington, D. C and he He called us and he was. He was kind of struggling. With Things were going on. And so, um He asked me in the conversation. Hey, Hey, Dad. What is specific Air force is going to say, and as a commander, Pacific Air forces That was kind of code to me of Dad. What are you going to say? So on Tuesday, when I confirmation didn't come through. I was committed, then that discordant and do the video. And so was my own personal experiences, but, you know, thinking about her two sons. And their experiences and so that actually was what got me to do it. Did you tell your superiors Uh, no. I felt like, you know. I got to a point where because of talking to my son. I thought it was the right thing to do. You are now the highest ranking African American in the U. S. Military. How do you use that position to make it So the younger version of yourself isn't the only one in the room. How do you Increase opportunities for air men and women of color. Rachel. I think it's about being a role model. It's about how I carry myself on a day to day basis so that those that They're more dinner to make can can look up and see somebody they want to aspire to be, like, ideally, so what actions will be necessary? I mean, it's one thing to be unexamined well to be a role model, and that's important. But what changes what policy changes do you think need to be made? I mean, is I understand that there was an inspector general report. Looking into how racism could affect promotions in the Air Force, and hundreds of thousands of our men and women were also surveyed about diversity issues. What actions do those results point to The data actually shows that you know there are areas where based on What career feels ERM and go into made either help or hurt their opportunity to rise to more senior ranks. And so it's how we pay attention to recruiting in placing Eman of diverse backgrounds and specific career feels It's also looking at someone requires. We have a career Phyllis to understand. Do they have some type of barrier that we have not paid attention to? Because that's the way it's always been. The other thing we were also looking to do is how do we work in closely managed those of a diverse background and what I mean by that is just really take a look at the opportunities to prepare them for those positions to consider them. For positions and not make it just the situation. We hope it all works out, but it takes purposeful leadership in engagement to ensure that we are actually bringing the best. For all over me. There are more than 12,000 active duty pilots in the Air Force, according to data compiled by McClatchy News Service on Lee. About a dozen of them are black women. Do you see that as a problem? Do you only aspire to what you've been exposed to? You know, sometimes we might self eliminate just because we don't think we're qualified. So one of the areas that we have an air force is looking at is how do we provide more exposure? To young African Americans. Women really across the board. That? Yes, you could do this. And here's what it takes to get there I often say is We all need to ask what we wanna be able to. The worst air force can do is tell, you know, but if you don't ask, we can't say yes. So we want to put those that want to be part of our air force in a position where we can say yes. Let me ask you about this current moment in our political history in this country, the transition between one administration and another is actually critical to the national security. Are you convinced that the current civilian leadership at the Pentagon is committed to a smooth and responsible transfer of power? I think we're all working to a smooth transition of power. Both civilian and military and the Our job is to maintain our national security. And no matter who which administration our community chief we have, and that's that's my job as a service chief is a joint chief, and our goal is to make sure that we don't have a Any type of security incident in a peaceful transition of power like we've found throughout our history. You have any concerns that there would be? I mean, is it going to plan right now? The transition from your perspective. E think are now securities and is in is Not being threat right now, but realize that also that We're always we don't we have one side of the boat and the other side of the voters are our adversaries, and that's something as a as a service season, 25 play close attention to what the other joint chiefs to ensure that We have a good sense of what's going on around the world as well. Let me ask about the man who could become The next secretary of defense, retired army General Lloyd Austin. I assume you've You've come across one another once or twice. What's he like? Is the leader. He's a strong leader. I think he's decisive. I I enjoyed working for him and he listens. Which I think is an important aspect as a leader, and he's willing to take input from those around him. If confirmed, General Austin will join you in making history this year by becoming the first African American to lead the Department of Defense. What will it mean to you and your serviceman to see him sworn into that job? I think for any one of a diverse black man. When you see someone who rises to a key position, you take a bit of pride in it. You appreciate it, and it also opens an opportunity that where you now think about your own career path, there's opportunities of the head. Chief of staff of the Air Force.

"Ignoring George Boyd's death? But he's saying that it's his job as somebody that's in the public eye to have those questions. Answer to have this conversation's with people and, you know he's been all over social media with his friend that since childhood who was a police officer, saying, he's one of the good ones and there are others like him, But just the great majority. He's a great guy, and he's a great police officer. He does. The right thing doesn't mean we should ignore the guys that are doing the wrong thing, because it's unpleasant, uncomfortable the last few weeks. Are we ignoring bad cops? No. But for how many years were they ignored? Not many, because for many years, cops are the ones who arrest bad cops goes on all the time. But today, today's cops are the best. The best trained the best equipped And the most sensitive They go through all this stuff, and so now is the least important time to protest police brutality in the 50 60 70 and eighties. Absolutely. I knew it. I saw it. But not to the nineties because you know Rodney King Rodney King, whether those cops are prosecuted and they went to jail. They were soon lot of stuff That happened, though, that you know, But today you would agree. Today's the best policing we've ever had in this country as faras accountability as Faras criticisms, lawsuits and training, it is right today, and this is the moment they choose to protest. The very few cops to make mistakes when the conversation when those who say let's have the conversation normally means listen to what I have to say and shut up. It doesn't mean let's have a conversation. It means you're wrong. And so a mere Garrett. I've never met him. I think you have is a good guy, And he's complaining about police brutality that all of us agree is wrong and that we all agreed that few cops are doing this. I think there's not a system of racism implemented by black police chiefs. I don't think so. And so now is the worst time to protest something that's largely been solved. You still have to protest those people that are that small few because it's unacceptable. Fundamentally, isn't that going on? That's what we're doing and that what they're doing there? I don't know how long we agree with the outcomes. No one's on the other side of America. No one is saying That we're in favorable, please. We're in favor of white supremacist. But this goes back to my original point, which is people are saying that he should shut up and I don't think that's fair because that's AH, That's a guy that's had personal experience with the Some of that systematic gloat. Police brutality, profiling and as a as a young man. He was 16 years old. He was a kid. I was in New York, but City was in. He was in California. Isn't it happens?

I'm good. How are you today? I'm well, thanks. You. Got a couple of minutes. Yeah. Sure. So we were there year ago that Columbus. Has it been since it's been very busy been very busy. You sound tired. It's been so busy. I think we're all we're all probably feeling a little bit. We're finally getting into place where we can catch our breath of yet. But from from about the time you left last year thing is just really kept booming forward. And so we had our busiest sales year ever, and I think we're more overtime and experienced maybe more challenges that we've had recently talked me through the challenges. Then I imagine, I mean, probably workforce is one of them, right? Yep. So workforce is certainly a big challenge. And as you're trying to as you're trying to find people to get in until you find the cruise that you need the number of heads that you need you wind up stretching your your current shift arrangements. And so we wound up with guys working long shifts and then adding days of the week and unfortunately, a lot of last year was more six days and five days and then more than if you instance. Seven days, that's a hard way to run. Did you find any of the trade brew highs? And we're has that impacted you at all. No, I wouldn't say that we've seen we haven't seen. Any slowdown has resulted if anything we've seen business much stronger. It's been interesting as our industry ran out of capacity during this last year.

And then brought back in the United States for sale. So, you know it's important for our customers for them to have a good supply chain that allows that to happen without much interference. We're certainly happy to see some of the improved America content requirements that were part of the new UCA, so imagine the congress will get it. But through so that we can get that back on track.
