It's not that I enjoy watching people act that way. I just think it's interesting, you know, Kick fights one thing but watching a gang of one race of people getting up on a single member of another race. He's black, white or Rennie. Other color? Yeah, that they just don't sit right with me. Yeah. Why doesn't this news story bother people as much as if it were that they were the opposite little blonde lady Little White lady. She's a mom. She's a tiny, anybody little thing. And where is this Georgia and she's a very small, petite woman. Very large woman whose skin color is not important. Just absolutely pummeling her in the little Caesars pizza. Just that's what I wanted to know when I say. Where was this, right? Yeah, it was a chuck e cheese but little Caesars. Pretty much the same. It is similar. Yeah. Andre, the other people standing around. It's almost like they Their position on this isn't to stop them. They're helping the lady whose skin with some people in a recording it obviously because there's a video and in the video, you can see other people videoing it. And then there's a couple of people just to enjoying it like a spectator sport. So they pour be a woman gets dragged out into the street where she gets basically gets curb stomped. Is that what you call? Yeah. Now how sidewalk stops. How long did that woman beat up on that other woman now inside the store, she beat on her for a good 2030 seconds, then drug her by the hair outside, then beat on her another 20 seconds or so and then. Stomped her head into the concrete after that, how much of that? But when? When do you think that could have stopped? Because I've heard after about the 1st 15 punches. You you, you should say Okay, well, she's learned her lesson. I got that out of my system. Let's move on. It felt like it went on for a long time. But the video's only about a minute long But now imagine getting that man about that was you for a minute, though, on solid minutes of getting punched in the face horrible Now the good news is the woman that dead it's been arrested. There's only 1/9 of the time that that cop knelt on George for his neck. Okay, Okay, but that's unrelated. Yeah. Unrelated. Nothing to do with this, Mr Rohit. All that doesn't make it. Okay. The fact that something bad happened to George Floyd doesn't make it okay for this woman to violently assault a little tiny, little petite mom, But I should point out that b E T is still running programs about George Floyd. You know, Ever since Tuesday night on whatever the anniversary last night, they have some old and then tonight they don't Have some mope so busy, But that's not the point. That's not the point. But I have questions about that. But did you know if you if you're beating someone and you dragged them out into the street you've now committed kidnapping. I did not know that. That's one of the things this woman's getting charged with. Because of the video, the white woman or the black woman. The White woman's not being charged with anything, okay, because her crime was being white and a little beaten at a little Caesars, where you're not supposed to be a white lady. Apparently don't know You're the only white person in there. She wasp. Yeah, and the other people in the The other people in the restaurant seemed to help the woman do it. I don't get what she's mad about the woman. Well, yeah, We don't know what started it. I'm sure white privilege jumped out. You know, maybe the little white kid, you know, one Some tickets and on on a video game or something, And, you know, probably shoved probably mean too, Though the black Children as it's happening, a little girl runs up. It tries to help her mom and someone comes up and pulls the kid away. Little black girl. Yeah, exactly. She wanted to get in on the fight, too. I guess so. Yeah. Parenting this sword. And then as all this is happening, you've got to remember the other lady. The white lady. Her kids were there to there. We see her kid in a video anywhere as she's getting a beating. She keeps asking where her baby is her child. I hate that. You know, it's unbelievable. Anyway. You know if that was, uh, that was me. And I know yeah. What if it was, uh let's say that was Priceline. It was getting ah, stomped out of her. When this is all said and done, Wouldn't you go visit that woman in jail? Um, you did love to be on the other side of the glass and just fuck your freedom in front of her. Ah, you have a visitor. Remember the woman that you you beating? Stopped and drilled out and kidnapped and stuff? Apparently the woman that did the attacking his name is Brittney. I would have expected the victim. Maybe the blonde was Britney to know the blonde's name was something else that a bit ironic of to Britney started fighting each other, and they didn't know they were both named Britney. And then halfway through the fight, they realized they had, and they go. Oh, my name is Brittney, too. And then they home and they hug. Yeah, on everybody's happy it was Emily was the victim. Britney was gonna happen. Yeah, well, yeah, That's right. That's today's episode of people who can't act right? Mr. Rose, Right? B E T has the George Boyd special of the night tonight. Justice now, the way forward So you won't want to miss that. I do wonder when somebody like this gets violently attacked like that. Do you think part of the reason why they're doing it is because of what happened to George Boyd. Probably. Yeah. Tensions are high. Yeah. I mean, it's bad out there. Yeah, people are worked up. It's hard to imagine right now in America, watching two people of two opposite race is just go at it like that. As horrible and not think that underneath it all beneath the surface of everything.

Well, all right, since I was out in the last week, can you Bring me up to date on some of the big issues of the Legislature was gonna handle s O. What's the status of the whole capital gains discussion? The capital gains tax was passed. It's a 7%. On 250,000 or more. It takes effect. There was no emergency class included, but there is language that will keep it from ever referendum. It would have to be an initiative to challenge it on and There's already one lawsuit that was filed last week. A second one is on the way and in the lawsuit challenges it based on the commerce clause because it effects out of state capital gains and then it also is over The fact that it's an illegal income tax, they say. And so that means what enforcement Well, it's not gonna be enforced by the way, one of them when it's supposed to kick in. It doesn't kick in.

That's the one that you take away a cop's license. Um, actually, that one had a lot of pushback. It was the duty to intervene where you saw for General order of police and that a couple of other groups who came out and did support that one because who, you know nobody's going to sit there and say everything that those officers did standing next to him. Seven in the George Boyd case was okay, so that's kind of what the duty to intervene is. You don't stand around. You have to get involved. Well, that makes a lot of sense. Sure, Hannah Scott.

"For this proposition. The NYPD own numbers indicate that it's not due to the laws that we have passed any sort of objective. Observation would also bring that could bear look. It is not just New York that has experienced an uptick in violence. This has been a national problem. Shootings are up everywhere in the country on it hasn't been every state that has re hauled their criminal legal systems. In the way that we did gunfire into the complicated issue. There are many causes for it. What the NYPD does is react after the gun violence has happened. But there's a lot of things that we should be doing to prevent it from happening in the first place. There are economic reasons. There are educational reasons. There are health care reasons why this is up, and it's precisely why Authored a bill that the community violence intervention act that sought for community and hospital based interventions that would help us to prevent this in the first place. And so you know, I get. I couldn't disagree with the commissioner and the police Department more about the causes of gun violence now. You know, it's important for us to remember that there are reasons that people resort to gun violence on def We address those reasons. If we look to solutions, I think we're gonna be in a much better place. And you know that Republicans and some other people, some in law enforcement would say the scrutiny and vilification of police since George Boyd was murdered by a minute, Minneapolis cop. Has caused law abiding cops to pull back from enforcement out of fear of being unfairly targeted for brutality. And that's allegedly another piece of what's happening. What's your reaction to that? You know, I can't speak to whether there has been sort of a pullback by police officers on the street. You know, I have to work with a number of law enforcement folks in my district. On the police on the ground that I've had relationships with have not been pulling back, and I think have been a bit more solution oriented than what we've seen from the NYPD leadership. But I stress again that if you don't want to be demonized for brutality, there's a very simple solution to that. Do not brutalize. Do the job that you were hired to do to keep people safe. This notion that they're being unfairly targeted to me. I think it's it's unacceptable mostly because you know there's sort of this old adage that when you have been superior for most of your tenure Quality feels like suppression on what we're having now is a real conversation about accountability, and if that accountability feels like oppression, suppression attacks And so be it. But any of us who were serious about the movement for police reform are not about attacking officers. We just wanted to be treated in an equal manner. Just take a phone call from a constituent. I think Justin in Brownsville, You're on w N Y. C with state Senator. So memory I Justin. Good morning, Brian. Thank you for taking my call. But Marty tickets. This is a question on my mind with the mayor's on bond. Your guests here. We keep talking about taking guns from the bad guys, which is very impossible are even if it's possible is gonna take A long time to do that. He plucked coming in with illegal gun in this state. The problem we have in these people are not talking about how People like me can protect myself. Deadman cannot die out 911, and that's the only option here on the table. This good law got near the blahs. Your who I work for him while love. Is bragging about his crop. Because in a sense, people cannot a policeman was hijacking cannot see the other day. He's alive today because he has gone off duty Police officer could protect himself. If it was me, I would be dead. Right on down. We are not having a discussion. Oh, God. We have the safest gun law when ah one guy can walk in any store with 10 people. Justin, You wanted to be easier for regular civilians to own guns for self defense in New York City. That's what you're saying, right? Right? I'm my question is Ho Does citizen like me can protect myself from the criminals who have the gun. How can talk the operator, protect himself from the criminal criminal who's gonna come behind him and put a gun to his head? I already called the police on when the police react Now we're bringing the police for the even though I agree that these police aggressive in many cases, But why We are doing the same thing. Expect different results. Senator Marie Thank you so much destined for this call in and for your question and sentiment. You know, this is really important for us to discuss. I think particularly the way that you ended this. Why are we using the same solutions for problems that persist with without a different result? On the truth is the way that we have been doing things has not worked. The approach that we've used against gun violence against getting guns off the street against keeping our public safe have failed. Us using police alone approach has not worked. And so I think that we propose some solutions. We know that most of the gun violence is concentrated within a small group of activity. A small group of people on the and the truth is, is that we can't arrest our way out of that problem. We have to deal with that the small group of individuals who are getting most of their guns by the way. From out of the state. 74% of the gun found on crime scenes like you describe Justin are from out of state. They're not from New York. They're not from folks who were doing this legally. That's one of the approaches. It's not the only approach but one of the approaches. I think we need to do is to cut off that pipeline so that we'd get 74% of those guns off the street that are not from here and start dealing with the very small group of individuals who are committing the overwhelming majority of the gun crimes. Justin. Thank you very much. Please keep calling us. We're almost at a time that I see you had a lot to say on Twitter Senator after the census figures were announced with New York State just 89 people short of keeping the same number of congressional seats as it is, we would lose one. Who blew what as you see it. Brian, you know that the census was my thing. This was the number one issue in my office. We marshaled every resource that we had. We sent mailers. We did Robo cause we held parades. We did Webinars. We were out on the streets. We did everything possible to ensure that we had the highest census count possible. The problem, Woz We asked the governor to allocate the resource is to help us to do this work to help the community groups on the ground who were trusted to do this work. And the honest truth is that the governor dragged his feet on didn't release the money until almost a month before the count was due. And so the fact that we were short by 89. People suggest to me that had those resource has been allocated when they were first given almost two years ago, then we would have been in a much better place. Let this be a lesson going forward that you should listen to the communities that are most impacted by this When we're asking for the resource is the census tracts in my district, almost 80% of them in the 2000 and 10 senses where what we call hard to count Census tracts. That means that there was reluctant to engage with the census for myriad of reasons. We knew this going into it. And it's precisely why we asked for the resource is to ensure that even during a pandemic, we would have folks participate. New York City did its job. Commend the mayor. I commend the NY Census 2020 effort because we were able to match the 2000 and 10 numbers. Even during a pandemic. I think the state fell down on the job here on hopefully we'll be able to rectify it going forward. You know, Governor Cuomo wants to go to court, perhaps to challenge the count..

Obviously, there's a lot more The video, but the police backed off and showing all of it saying you need a warrant to see all of it. They have to, you know, I guess kind of phase out, you know? Cover up some of the faces in it that people can't be exposed. You know they weren't part of the situation. So editing not eating, taking things out, but, you know, protecting people's personal privacy. When releasing videos like that has to be done as well. But basically, it sounds like the family is saying You know? Yeah, he was he was, you know, head warrants being served him well, we understand that, but he also had his hands on the steering wheel. When he was shot. The police say, tried toe, move the vehicle and get away, eh? So kind of he said, she said, and I would imagine will be some more clarity on that one more.

Where Does Biden Stand on Policing in Communities of Color?
"The epidemic of black men being killed by police. But he's also presented himself as an ally of the law enforcement community. NPR's Juana Summers takes a look at the line. The president is walking when Joe Biden offered his condolences to George Boyd's loved ones in a video played at Floyd's funeral last year. 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. We must give to our Children when they ask why. Because when there is justice for George Floy, we will truly be on our way to racial justice in America. Aside from the policing overhaul bill that carries George Floyd's name that is stalled in Congress.

"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.

"Not mean that the officer in that particular case would not have been guilty of use of excessive force. That's also a possibility. I've said that since the beginning, if you're gonna go for a conviction in the George Boyd case rather than grandstanding, the easy conviction is probably excessive force, not murder. Because it's hard to put prove causation in terms of murder. When the person is suffering from what is pretty clearly excited.

Right that, but to just say now? Yeah, we've been here less than a month after being locked out for more than a year. And we're just going to stop studying that potential angle. Especially after everything we've seen from China and the World Health Organization. Uh, it's kind of hard to swallow this right now.

I mean, why did those journalists accidentally die? Why did they threaten researchers? It's a good question. Just curious. Because obviously they had nothing to hide right?

You get that right, right? Yes, That's the deal. Okay, So if that, in fact is true, we'll wait. See? Then how could they say Trump incited the riot? They say any incited it right there with his speech, or it was well, he kept putting down into the election, and that's what spurred on these groups against this plan. I guess it's kind of all of the above. Maybe I'm not again. I'm not. I'm not really sure that's really good question, though. Yeah, it is.

And that flies in the face off what we saw last year in the wake of the George Boyd protests. When players said, We demand NFL that you stand with black lives matter.

Why are you even starting off with any kind of formula That has an assumption that we as black players have a lower brain function than white players before we even play? And I think that's been a problem that the NFL has been facing in different ways on different situations. For years, they might feel like outwardly we don't agree with domestic violence. We don't agree with race, Norman. We don't agree with these things and some of their case law and some of their opinions back that up.

"With Ryan Gorman on PM Tampa Bay. One thing we want to make sure we do here on PM Tampa Bay is keep close eye on what's happening in Tallahassee as we gear up for this 2021 legislative session and Our legal correspondent Felix Vega has been watching some of the bills being proposed in the state capital. And Felix joins me now to run through a couple of them, including one having to do with law enforcement, one having to do with businesses across Florida and the pandemic and one having to do with pensions. Felix thanks so much for taking a few minutes to run through all of this with us and let's start with the bill. Involving law enforcement. Yeah, this would make it a third degree felony for a police officer, law enforcement officer to use any sort of force involving someone's neck that would choke them. Cut off their blood, flow their circulation or prevent them from bleeding. So these will you be your typical chokehold said you would see that have largely have started to fall away in law enforcement practices, but also the one you saw with George Boyd, where he ultimately wasn't ended up being killed, but any sort of restriction On the neck or throat area would become a criminal offense. I'm skeptical about where this bill will go because ah lot of police departments have wanted to reform themselves on their own, and they've eliminated practices involving choke holds and other more severe methods within their training programs, And that's really what's been bandied around a lot in the George Floyd. Criminal Justice Act is before Congress to ban choke holds on the nationwide level, but I think this is now going a little too far in terms of encroaching on individual departments and their ability to govern themselves. Obviously, we don't want to see another George Boyd situation happened here in Florida, but I think criminalizing something and one specific type. Of restraint maneuver doesn't really make sense from a law enforcement perspective as much as it does to change. Overall, the department policies on choke holds and restraints. On the individual level. Do we know Are there like a bunch of departments across the state of Florida that aren't enforcing this already? That aren't moving away from these types of maneuvers. Well, certainly here, you know, in the Bay area, they have definitely moved away from those maneuvers We've obviously does. Each department has their own policy. It's hard to keep track of wood there is going on. Unless there's a generous is this is a solution in search of a problem here in the state of Florida. I think it has the potential of overreaching, and I think it's addressing one specific issue. That's part of a broader reform issue that the police departments want to handle on their own. We've seen a lot of initiatives here in the Tampa Bay area where they want to increase the number of people that are responding in terms of mental health workers. Getting them the help they they need are people that are in trouble A supposed to just using officers like over in believe ST Petersburg. And so this is one thing where you're you single out a specific act by and all Officer and trying criminalize it. I don't think you're addressing the bigger problem. We'll just What people want to see is broader police reform across the board, racial sensitivity training dealing more with like I said, people that have mental health issues how officers confront those individuals and also the broader concept of community policing, So we'll see where the bill goes, but I think it's going to get Some pushback, especially from the Florida Sheriff's Association, local law enforcement officials and probably even the attorney general's office and let me ask you this. This bill would make it a third degree felony if an officer war to strangle a suspect under certain circumstances, But Are there already? Penalties if that were to happen, like what? We're seeing play out with the officers involved in the death of George Floyd. Right? Exactly, And this is the issue I had with the right and protest law that's being proposed in Tallahassee is that if say, for example, a officer does use a choke hold And the department's outlaw that policy that the officer probably deep, be disciplined, removed and stripped of his powers and fired from the department. And then the state attorney would then charge the officer with you. No battery by strangulation or some, whatever the appropriate crime is. So I think this is kind of your getting the cart before the horse. In terms of addressing. You know if the issue comes up there as we disciplinary action investigation by the floor Department of Law Enforcement and obviously the state attorney would be involved in any such allegations. So again, we're trying to criminalize things that are already subject to being prosecuted in the state of Florida and as we've discussed at length With the protest bills. You're basically reclassifying crimes that already exist and just throwing in the word writer protest to, you know, kind of it's more of a political move. That is a actual legislative or prosecutorial move that changes the law. And when we already have laws on the books that take care of these kinds of things, yet these types of bills are filed whether it's the anti riot bill or this bill. That Leads me to believe that this is a political move. There's no other description for it. In my opinion, unless the senator introducing this just doesn't know the law here in Florida and has spent no time Researching it, which I find hard to believe so again. Political move not a solution to an actual problem, which is what these lawmakers both Democrats and Republicans Should be focused on joined by our legal correspondent Felix Vega, running through some of the issues popping up at the beginning of this 2021 legislative session. As things start to get rolling here in January, let's do an update on the business protections. For this pandemic, this liability issue that has been talked about since the pandemic began. But now work is actually being done on it. Although again by the time any of this legislation were to potentially pass And get enacted, hopefully will be on the other side of this pandemic. So this is kind of like legislation for perhaps a future pandemic that hopefully will never have to deal with. Right, And this is the Senate version, which is filed by state Senator Jeff Brandon's from ST Petersburg. The House has already cleared their version gone through with subcommittee process and again how this works. In the end, the Senate introduces a bill. The House introduces a bill when the legislative session begins on March 2nd what the two sides will get together and this is a priority for The Legislature on both sides of the of the aisle is, though what's called reconcile the bills see where they can make the match up and then pass the whole to build together through the house on the Senate. So this is the Senate version, and it kind of addresses a bunch of different things that have come up. There were issues for the liability protection for businesses, churches and schools. This is not involved healthcare providers, hospitals or nursing facility, skilled nursing facilities and long term care facilities. Separate legislation is going to address that, as I've already gotten a preview of that I'm kind of tracking that separately. So what this would deal as we talked about before it will protect businesses who basically substantially complied. With all the coronavirus restrictions, the safety measures were put in place by not only the state government also federal government and also local ordinances. There were put in place, for example, mask wearing and social distance, saying Restaurants that are able to you have indoor and outdoor seating, and so in Brandis is Bill. It's interesting because it limits the timeframe from when you can file these lawsuits to one year after whatever you're claiming, happened to you or a loved one. So, for example, if Loved one died at the beginning of the Corona virus, and they're trying to say that they were worker at a local grocery store..

This is pretty good. Hey, I'm.
"george boyd" Discussed on KTLK 1130 AM
"11 31 35 of them. Justice Andrew along with Sam. What? No, no, no, It's not like I was gonna say more. I was made to get more coming. It was good. I I decided not 65 90 95 855. Let's get to the phone's got a lot of people on hold will start with Tom in Saint Paul. Good morning, Tom. Hey, Good morning, guys. So you're you're discussing not just the deal, but also the success they're having identifying the capital Rioters. And by the way, I'm all for that. I think anyone that participated in the violence should indeed Arrested, but Here's what I find curious. There was a story in the painter press a couple weeks ago. And it's about this poorly managed $800,000 fund that was created to help people whose businesses were destroyed during the George Boyd riot and Accompanying this article was a full color photo of a protester throwing a brick or a rock through a business window. And what went through my head was, Why do we have it's $800,000 fun? Are you telling me we don't have, like 1000 pictures of easily identifiable people, and we can't sue them each civilly for 1000 bucks. So you know, I don't want to engage miss. What about is the taking over the country? But for Pete's sake, man, Where is your outrage when it's not a government entity being attacked? That's why I think like we mentioned and we'll get into the examples of this coming up. Thank you. That's why I think you see, I think now that it it often takes, you know, it's like when we talk with used to be Garden Center. Ross is the example of our counterterrorism and global global threat. Analysts, you know, divvied whenever there's a major event defeat is always is always hesitant to want to come on the next day. He always wants to wait a few days. He wants things to sort of level out, especially when it comes to events like that, because things are so fluid. The same rules apply when it comes to an event like what happened on January 6 and the reaction to it. It takes a long time you get a knee jerk reaction and because of the speed of social networking in the social sphere that usually that gets thrust up And gets everybody spun up. And suddenly it looks like this is how everybody feels about this. This is the in the narrative forms. It takes about a week. And we're seeing this now until you actually begin to see. Oh, this is what the majority Actually feels like it. My point is People understand and see that hypocrisy and we're beginning to see the examples of people understanding and seeing that hypocrisy, including the A C L U that's actually come out and warned about the unchecked power of big tech companies with the ability to deep platform a still sitting president and pay attention. As you know, we we've already started to see it as arrests start rolling in Really pay attention to him and pay attention to who's getting arrested. And we've already seen examples of people getting arrested for being involved directly involved in the capital riot. When you know the name gets released out there, the public and people start start scouring their social media and you find out these air, not trump fans, right, You know, And that's not to say that every obviously obviously it was a mixture of both, but the people out there that are perpetuating this narrative that there was There was no infiltration, and these were all my August supporters and this and that that is much of a lion's anything else out there. Of course, there were people involved that were infiltrating and and it would be foolish and naive to think that there weren't some anti for people there who threw on a red hat. You know, just to be just to be a part of it because they knew they knew what the narrative was going to be coming out of this. We'll think of what happened locally. They wanted to pick one. You know, one guy with an umbrella, right? The one that started on brother man, which, by the way, this is another point of hypocrisy. Just just now landed. It was umbrella man. Remember? Umbrella man was the one who started. All of it's like then last summer, that was okay to say that one guy with an umbrella who started his randomly smashing windows was the guy that instigated everybody else. Then it was sign January 6th not so much. Let's go to Mike in Saint Paul. Good morning, Mike. Okay, I'll make a few quick points and I'd like to dig your response on. But first I'll start out scene. If this election was conducted earnestly, there's no way Trump loses election. I've watched hour after hour of hearings. I don't think these people Not a fair hearing. In fact, I've heard reports. That threats were being levied against law offices not to represent Trump. Don't believe me Anybody. Well, what did the guy from parlor just say? A few days ago, he's been threatened. He can't even go home. Each other got hit with the partner of the parlor lawyers pitched off. He had they had to go find new, apparently supposed to be back up in the next day or so. But, yeah, he had a bunch of his lawyers pinched off of him. And another fella called earlier about voter fraud. Yeah, we will talk about that later. But There's something else. The fact that state legislators they went around the state legislatures. It specifically stated in the Constitution that it's the duty. It's the job of the state legislatures to change the law, not governors, not secretaries of state. That's where the Supreme Court failed US. So if that doesn't get addressed, we will never have a shot. Going forward. Last point. Is this this whole thing about crushing Trump and all of it? I think this is all about people like Pelosi and the swamp people saying This is our game. We're running this. You guys don't matter. And that culture has been going on for a long time. And the people are fed up with it. Thank you. Yeah. No, I agree. Mike and I do think a lot of what we've seen. Well, most of what we've seen over the last four years was just a swamp fighting back. Yeah. Custody. No, you don't. You know You're not supposed to come in there and disrupt things, and I'm supposed to come in there and disrupt the status quo. The status quo is incredibly comfortable and incredibly lucrative for a lot of people, and then we'll get into more examples like to keep it That way. We get within the more examples of this in your phone calls coming up on the show. And look, I was worried. You know, I'm worried like everybody else is about what's been happening in the in the past week. Don't must understand. But I don't worry that much. And I try not to worry at all. Honestly, because the Democrats wouldn't be fighting so hard is to still go and get Trump. If they didn't know.
"george boyd" Discussed on KIRO Radio 97.3 FM
"Welcome to the kaleidoscope where every week we discuss issues, including LGBT Q disability and race this week, CBS News Justice correspondent Jeff Gaze looks back at the year where the police killing of a black man George Floyd sparked a global battle against brutality and racism. He was in Minneapolis. What you saw on the ground Woz this the start of this movement, I think you know, I arrived in Minneapolis. At the scene where George Floyd died. Just Really just hours after all of this unfolded and I looked around at the protesters. And I was surprised to see people from all different backgrounds. And I tried to relay the message to my producers, Managers and your that. Hey, this is more than just a black crowd. This is you have white folks here. You have people from all different backgrounds joining this protest? This is something different on. That's what it turned out to be me now. You you look at all the time that has passed. Just over six months. And you have George Floyd's name synonymous with social justice and racial equality because people were moved to tears move toe action by that. Cell phone camera of him. Losing his life on that street in Minneapolis. And so you know, it is really sparked this message that I think most of us will remember for the rest of our lives. And I need to jump in. For those who may not remember that he lost his life as a white police officer kneeled on his neck for some eight minutes while he yelled that he could not breathe. Yeah, it's still studying. Just think about how that unfolded. You know? How could a police officer do what That officer allegedly Did, And I'm saying allegedly because obviously is case is still in the court system. Um, but we saw it all unfold with our very eyes and I think that's what was Really different about this case how clear it was and then on top of that. You had these eye witnesses. They're telling him. Hey, Ease up! Stop! What are you doing? And he just kept going. You know, And that was the other disturbing thing about what we all saw. And so for me, that is the story that is really defined. This year. I've covered cyber attacks. I've covered election security. All right. It is George Floyd's case that's still stands out. Aziz the story of the year, man you've had other incidents pop up during years. Well Um, but it is George Floyd's. It was just that moment in time. Where you know you had this was Uh, me? Nothing early days of the pandemic, But it was it was May Esso. We were still in the middle of this pandemic. People have been at home. We were coming out of lockdowns. And so the moment was such That you had this emotional story and holding in Minneapolis and people were already emotional and fatigued by the pandemic. Um, and that just added frustrated in on top of heartache, the heartache of the pandemic was causing You know, and it just erupted into this. This movement that is still ongoing because if you look at the state of community police relations They really haven't changed since George Floyd's death the Trump administration Tweet some things. Um, but it certainly wasn't enough. To get people to understand the death of this issue and the this Police community relations problem that we've seen throughout decades in this country after Ferguson Uh, you had some efforts to change this dynamic. But George Boyd case just brought it all back. I mean, it's definitely something that Biden administration will have to deal with, because we have not seen any sort of breath resolution that I think will Um, quiet. Uh, those who say there needs to be fundamental change and how police officers are working in these communities of color. Will you at all surprised, Jeff that this became a global issue. There were people protesting in Japan and Thailand and Italy. It was it was really quite something to see. It was something to see. And I'm I'm glad you bring that up because I was surprised because, you know, just thinking about everything that is going on. Not on Lee in this country, but overseas as well. But what you see is that the common thread E is for some reason people of color. I have evidence. Off a different standard of justice, Whether it's here. I in the United States or in other parts of the world there is this feeling that People of color are treated differently. So how do we solve this issue? You know, this is something that Americans have grappled with for decades and still Just based on what I've seen in my experience, we have a long ways to go. You know, President Obama tried to solve some of these issues. With his 21st Century policing task Force, which came up with a report at the end of his administration. But obviously it wasn't enough that I don't think Mean Listen, President Trump. He has supported police and he's been very vocal about his support or police. With his law and order messaging, But that is on Lee. In my view, driven A bigger gulf between community and policing, because what President Trump has not done is been able to identify or understand. The issues end in these communities where you have this tension between police and community and until you have leadership that understands what's at stake that understands the tension. There will not be change. CBS is Jeff the gays. That's it for the weekend round up. Thanks for listening. We want to get your feet back.

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. General Charles Que Brown, Jr. Thank you
