New York Attorney General Sues NYPD for Excessive Force Against Protesters

"There's a text on the My Pillowtex line. Great. They should be pouring through the videos looking to arrest violent protesters in D. C. Now do Portland. Now do Seattle. Now do Minneapolis. Now do New York. I've got to tell you this. This is actually comical. There's an attorney general in New York. Apparently, they color Tish. Joe Piscopo this morning kept calling her Tish James. Her name is Leticia James. G E can't even believe I'm gonna say these words. Do you know? She's blaming and who she's suing over the violence and clashes and riots in New York. After George Ford's death. She's suing the NYPD. He's showing them. I'm not. I'm not kidding you. You think I'm pulling your leg? Here's The New York Post editorial yesterday, State Attorney General Leticia James filed a lawsuit against the NYPD for supposedly excessive force and false arrests during the Black lives matter. Protests slash riots this summer. The suit alleges that the NYPD in its top brass have failed to address a longstanding pattern of abuse. No question. The lawsuit says that the NYPD engaged in a pattern of excessive, brutal and unlawful force in suppressing overwhelmingly peaceful protesters. Overwhelmingly, she said. Overwhelmingly now, The New York Post points out. Letitia James evidently has an early bedtime because his darkness fell. These protests became overwhelmingly UNP. East fel very quickly. Activists ignored curfews yelled, Spat push! Cops! Windows were smashed. Stores looted, New York City became a boarded up wasteland, especially in the wake of the Capitol. Right. It's the liberal narrative that everything over the summer was overwhelmingly peaceful. Conveniently ignoring the attacks on federal buildings, the squatting in streets, looting and deaths. Deaths. Who would want to be a cop? Without with a lunatic like this.

I was horrified and understand what's going on. Her. George Floyd was saying I can't breathe. I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. But then The body cam video was leaked. Showing George Ford saying I can't breathe while standing next to the police car while he was in the back seat. I was like, okay, wait, Wait, wait, wait. Now, wait a minute. What have you heard? The latest Hennepin County, Minnesota Medical Examiner's report finally came out last week. ST George for he was not killed by the police, but he actually died of an overdose of fentanyl. The report was dated June 1st, but apparently the authorities in Minnesota Saturday night for like, three months. I wonder why His former Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel, famous, she's famously said never let a good crisis go to waste. Now Sara Taylor over the blaze has his bombshell. Defense attorney Eric Jane Nelson, lawyer for former Minneapolis police officer Derek said the late George Floyd was the victim of a careless overdose. Rather than police homicide. Authorities charged with murder and connect with George Floyd's May death, which stemmed from an altercation purportedly involving counterfeit money in light of the allegations. Attorney. Nelson is requesting a judge drop all charges against Chaban, who's pleaded not guilty. An attorney for one of the other officers involved in Towards death also says Bodycam footage shows the moment Floyd reportedly ingested a lethal amount of drugs right there on the bodycam. According to a money report from ABC News. Attorney. Nelson filed a motion in Hennepin County, Minnesota District Court Lance Friday, alleging the prosecution has not shown probable cause and charging Charlyne was second agree on potential murder through degree murder and second degree manslaughter. Emotion. Robin's attorney insists the foreign police officer carried out Floyd detainment by the book. Including including the use of a maximal restraint techniques. Nelson said, sharpened believe the technique was necessary have concerned that Floyd to harm himself or charming and his fellow officers during the detainment. Nelson said that another responding officers were trying to help Floyd. Was clearly acting erratically during the detainment out of concern for the man of the possibility might fall on strike his head be hit by an oncoming vehicle on the road and Mohr Nelson insisted the Minneapolis Police Department has approved training materials on such use of force. Which shows an officer placing a knee on the subject's neck in order to subdue him. Emotion, also noted the autopsy on George Floyd concluded there was both fentanyl and methamphetamine in the late suspect system, otherwise known as a speed ball. George boy who suffered from hypertensive heart disease as well as arteriosclerosis and hypertension. Also reportedly was positive for covert 19 times death. A portion of the motion red put simply, Mr Floyd could not breathe because he had ingested a lethal dose of fentanyl and possibly speedball, combined with sickle cell trait. His pre existing heart conditions. Mr Floyd, use of fentanyl and methamphetamine most likely killed him. Adding fentanyl and methamphetamine to Mr Floyd's existing health issues was tantamount to lighting a fuse on a bomb. Intimate County medical examiner, Dr. Andrew Baker also added that if George Floyd were found dead in any other circumstance in this case, home alone and no other no other apparent causes This could be acceptable to call an overdose. The Hennepin County Medical examiner's office rule George Boyd's death. A homicide determined that he died because of cardiopulmonary arrest, Complicating law enforcement subdural Pardon me, sir Abdul restraint and neck compression, But the autopsy report found no apparent bruising or trauma to Floyd's neck, neck muscles or back as a result of the restraint. Judge Peter Cahill will address Nelson's motion of September. 11th court hearing. According to ABC, But do you think the mainstream media is gonna widely reported this course not.

fired you'd rather be fired by the way folks we have movement we're moving in Seattle the other city within a city shop the he usually Chas I don't remember chop stand for the agency for chop and for the city of Seattle have renegotiated and now the area has been reduced from six blocks to three so the city of Seattle has determined that it's okay for black lives matter and antifa to just claim the property owned by others within a three block area of downtown Seattle people I can't believe I can't believe it I believe this is the American why the American left hates capitalism they hate people who are successful in capitalism anybody who owns a business is blocked to be obscenely wealthy bye everybody on the left I've explained this I don't how many times in the course of the many years every leftist believes that every business if it's a dry cleaning shop even who cares what it is they think that every business has a stash of money somewhere and they don't pay it to their employees it's the property of the owner and it's a lot of money and a shield that they don't give health care to their employees they don't they don't help their employees and all they pay a minimum wage of that and they're rich and they're wealthy and are mean spirited and they're selfish and nothing trickled out about that that's what they think of anything that's a business now you get to a huge corporation multinational just just a abilify what they think of it but the point is anybody who owns a business cannot possibly be a real person anybody who owns a business has to be I suspect they hate and despise capitalism they really do not like self reliance and it's not it's it's not a mystery anyway let me get started back to the phones it's been a while this is Gainesville Florida and Terry great to have graduated I'd rush to dear from you take you for the taking my call there's a lot of talk about reform on law enforcement one it's the true reform should actually be on the media the media has a lot of power when it comes to controlling the emotions of the American people what happened to George Floyd was wrong now I'm seventeen years in law enforcement but I feel the media covered George Ford's incident differently saying that law enforcement using too much force on American American people and just included other people that died like twenty temper out of Texas none of this stuff would have happened well I don't know thank you your your your your how you're going to change the media how you doing how you gonna punish them for being too emotional I don't know that's beyond me but I just feel that the media has is very corrupt and they control the way that the American people does that right you're you're you're right and I'll take the something else that you have swerved into the truth on I have learned it very very painfully over the course of the many years of doing this program that it is much easier to either reinforce or change anybody's opinion on anything if you do it via their emotions and I don't I try to change people's minds with the power of reason thinking intellect most people we're never going to be open to that but if you can reach their emotions you can change their minds it's it's human nature in the sense and it's it's it's the media and and a bunch of people on the left understand it I know exactly how to tweak people's emotions particularly guilt the big one so let me ask you are you are you still there Terry yes yes if if they would have done what differently where George white's concern you think it might have been different done what differently if because the end of the day they focused on it being a race thing and law enforcement you know there are more people that have died the same exact way that George Floyd died that were other races and and they didn't bring any attention to that I feel that you know if they had said that law enforcement there is people that used to much force and that's what this was is that excessive use of force and there's no evidence to prove that it was a race issue which has caused all this exactly my point you don't need the evidence you just need to connect with people's emotions and that's exactly what they did and by the time you look at the Floyd example may not be the best because I don't think anybody watching that for eight minutes can be persuaded of anything about it other than what they originally say white cops black victims no reason for this guy to be dead a movement on the to play the race card and to divide the country by race that sit perfectly I'm like you I don't think there was a racial component to it all from the from the cops standpoint I think there was much other stuff that's of reprobate status but I don't think was primarily race it doesn't matter what I think most people who start will conclude that it was because a cop was white the victim was black and they know quote unquote that the cops are murdering black people every day you remember the police union they dot don't misunderstand the police union guy New York who blew up he was speaking to the media with some of his membership standing behind it and he said the that he had encountered a thing the other day where young African American kids are being taught every day a white cop kills a black kid on the way home from school their talks this their brother by their parents or in school he heard about and he believed he blew up he grabbed his his badge and held it up he said this shield has not been discolored or disfavored by anything that happened in Minneapolis that simply is not true that does not happen it does not happen African American kids are not killed every day on the way home from school by white cops well if you want to see what a bunch all of.

Lawmakers hold hearing on police brutality and racism in America

"Today today the the house house judiciary judiciary committee committee is is hearing hearing testimony testimony on on police police brutality brutality and and racial racial profiling profiling it's it's the the same same week week that that house house Democrats Democrats introduced introduced sweeping reforms like banning police chokehold ending no knock warrants for drug searches and forcing states to collect data on police misconduct felonious Florida brother of George Floyd who died under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer a death that touched off international outrage spoke at today's hearing when you watch a big brother who looked up to for your whole life dia di bigger boys mom I'm here to ask you to make it stop stop the pain stop was the entire Joe was called by him and he was like no it please listen to the crowd I'm making to you now to the calls about family and the callers rang out the streets across the world well borrow backgrounds genders and races have come together to demand change NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell joins us now Kelsey of Fulham's Floyd very powerful broke down in tears and just one of several witnesses today most call by Democrats so what else did you hear I think that I we heard one of the more moving moments from Floyd's testimony there he he was very clearly emotional after having the funeral was just yesterday I think one of the theme that we heard across the witnesses from both parties is that there was an acknowledgement that the catheter Floyd was wrong and horrifying and that reforms are necessary but there was not a lot of agreement or commitment about the right way to go about seeking those reforms I I will say that it was very interesting also to listen to one of the Republican witnesses her her brother was a federal officer who died it near the end the protests in Oakland California and she said that she empathized with the family of George Ford and she called for the same kind of justice for her brother she was called by Republican she's a former Republican congressional candidate in California so there was it there was shared horror on at the death of George Floyd but that that this is not yet quite at a point where there's an agreement about what to do about the striking to see a Democrats and Republicans have different lists of possible law enforcement reform you put them next to each other they're they're different and as we heard from Tonya Democrats have on their list banning chokeholds Republicans don't his representative Karen bass a Democrat talking about national standards for police it should never be that you can do a chokehold in one city and not in another there should be basic standards there should be basic accreditation there should be continuing education just as there are in so many other professions tells you what else are Democrats proposing while Democrats have off of a very extensive bill they're talking at a bedside from just the typical day want to ban what is known as qualified immunity it gives it is being used by police officers to to said that they would be immune from from from trials essentially from civil prosecutions I loved it that is something that has been controversial I will say that the the issue of chill cold has not been completely litigated between Democrats and Republicans there is some openness among Republicans to consider a ban but there are also talking about de escalation ways to lessen potential for choke holds that there there's a feeling among Republicans that they do not want to constrain the local police so what is possible here and something that the Republicans staff has raised with me is that there's a possibility that outside of the building across have proposed there could be additional separate bipartisan negotiations and talks we do know that Republicans in the center working on their own proposals which we may see in the coming days well and it could be said that Republicans are using calls to de fund police as evidence the Democrats are weak on crime here's the Judiciary Committee ranking member the Republican Jim Jordan it is pure insanity to defund the police and the fact that my Democrat colleagues won't speak out against this crazy policy it's just that frightening well having to speak to a representative Jordan tomorrow but meanwhile Democrats have spoken out against you de funding the police is something protesters are calling for representative bass called it a distraction senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia so the idea is crazy of so where does this debate go are they just talking past each other well it is interesting to watch Democrats figure out how to respond to these demands from their base it is not uncommon for either party to be trapped in a situation where the activists portion of their bases calling for something more extreme than the establishment partial portions of the party you're willing to get behind by and large elected Democrats in Congress are not in favor of the concept of de funding the police they say actually attempting to rewrite a little bit of what that means we've heard some some Democrats say when they hear D. fund they hear reform and that they that they think that the real intention here is to change the way the police interact with the communities that they serve NPR

"News flash liberals across the country we do not live in a utopia because we do not live in a utopia we require law enforcement security protection to keep us safe to keep our children safe that doesn't mean that it all times were always safer that there's enough law enforcement to keep everybody safe from every instant or every bad actor every criminal act it also doesn't mean that you give law enforcement a pass where there has been a police abuse and would you have seen in the George Ford case most recently you don't give law enforcement a pass the question is what is the correct response and the radical groups that have been running the protests which then led to riots which have now kind of called out back you to probe protest they are now pushing something that I kind of feel like we've dealt with a lot before the ACLJ when it comes to Israel let's just divest from the police west defied the police we don't need police yeah let me ask you this give us a call one eight hundred sixty four thirty what did your police in your neighborhood your police in your city in your town how do you feel like of Joe Biden started Dorsey a message like this and we're starting to see how elected Democrats that are trying to dance around this move which is that moving forward to places like Minneapolis yeah and this is their starting the process there Los Angeles police a hundred fifty billion dollars out of the police budget that's not going to add two more treaty on appropriate police action is going to take away from appropriate trading methods for certain see these Democrats say well well if it is too late piece by piece city by city they're worried they're scared too then if this becomes the defining message of twenty twenty instead of George Floyd and police brutality it's something we need to deal with as a nation that de funding the police is a very dangerous for so it's very dangerous and secondly it is a losing absolutely losing political kind of ideology no I don't think there's any question about that but just let me read to you what the council president of Minneapolis said we're committed to dismantling the police as we know it in the city of Minneapolis and to rebuild with our community a new model of public safety that actually keep our community safe they don't want to say press one pressed for details about it she said they had really haven't worked through that yet but they're gonna start with funding obviously they want to cut funding and more to a community based strategy now look what happened with these police officers involved in this murder and that's what I call it is a crime it should be prosecuted it should be rooted out and get gotten out of the police departments throughout the country we should be in a situation where no citizen and it is especially true within the African American community should be subjected and treated like these police officers treated I mean it's not just what happened in Minneapolis it's been many other states we've seen it over the history that has to go but the answer cannot be it's so simplistic we'll just dismantle the police department and they will I was reading all these articles last night and they will come up with something that may work what's that something but they really don't know well maybe you should have the idea of what that's going to be before you start dismantling public safety because the primary job the primary job of local government is community site safety and well being and I think they're making a a serious mistake it really serious mistake Jordan when they take this is the route they were making a lot of statements I getting a lot of attention to that blue police brutality which was good to get the attention then it was trying to be hijacked by a few and then the then the real protesters took it back from the hijackers good but now the movies to the political move and what it might be a tremendous mistake folks let me tell you something we want to take your.

"About an hour and they connected here on nights at my name is dead right the host of the inside here every Monday through Friday from eight until midnight rob Brooks is back in the broadcast tells he's in the control room get ready for your phone calls and we're going to talk tonight as we have talked this week and last week about the the absolutely unnecessary death of George Ford it was a an event today in Minneapolis I'm sure you've heard about that a memorial service to be others but if the in Washington today the Attorney General of the United States bill Barr who I have a lot of faith in I know there are those of you who are listening who will recoil at that comment but I think bill Barr is a straight shooter and I'd like to share with you some of what he said today and I want to ask you to respond if you believe in what bill Barr is saying and whether or not he will follow through again words are easy actions are harder later on tonight we're gonna talk about the controversy swirling around another NFL quarterback no not Tom Brady drew Brees will get all of that and also the specter of what looked to me like a re education camp in Maryland will get to that later on tonight I think that will shock and probably upset a lot of people hopefully on what all sides you're one of the points that I could continue to try to make your night side is that all of us have a lot more in common than we have in difference and hi I hope I hope the people of good will on both sides of whatever this divide is I hope it is not a racial divide I don't think it is a racial divide but because I think they're a lot of folks who are marching with protesters all different backgrounds I am convinced of that and I also know that there are people who are conservatives and Republicans and libertarians who are as upset about what happened to George Floyd as anyone we talked last night with one of our your callers and he he he he was almost brought to tears by and he is a big Donald Trump supporter so let's start off with this is bill by today number the bar has a very matter of fact home and I think I'd mentioned you have a very close friend of mine who is a very close friend of bill Barr I do not know bill barring the Attorney General other than his public persona but I do know him and his level of integrity through this friend of mine who could not speak more highly of him as a matter of fact Barr believes the the god father to his two sons so let's start off Billboard talking about watching watching the killing on a Minnesota street George Floyd this is cut forty six rob the video of the police conduct in this episode as I said before is harrowing when you watch it and imagine that one of your own loved ones was being treated this way and begging for their lives it is impossible for any normal human being not to be struck to the heart with our this matter is being pursued by both the state and the federal government the president has directed me to spare no effort so the question is do you believe bill Barr he talked about it again he he he he's either an actor I think he believes this in his heart this is cut forty seven or eight talks about the promise of America and what this does to the promise of America cut forty seven runs over the constitution Avenue entrance to this building is a Latin inscription that translates everything is created by law and order that ancient principle still holds true our free society depends on the rule of law the assurance that ordinary citizens can go about their lives without being subject to arbitrary violence for fear when the rule of law breaks down the promise of America does also he follows up in the next cut cut forty eight rob he talks about the the impact of the death of George what our nation is now confronting to serious challenges to the rule of law the first is a long standing one but was recently crystallized and driven home by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis I sensed in his voice I sense that he is angry I think he is angry about this as every American should be angry and again this is the Republican Attorney General but he is the Attorney General of the United States of America and he talks about racism he doesn't beat around the bush this is bill Barr US Attorney General on racism forty nine today is a day of mourning and the day is coming soon I am confident when justice justice will be served George Floyd's death was not the first of its kind and it exposes concerns that reach far beyond this particular case while the vast majority of police officers do their job bravely and righteously it is undeniable that many African Americans lacked confidence in our American criminal justice system this must change follow up with cut fifty he talks about equal protection of the law our constitution mandates equal protection of the laws and nothing less is acceptable as the nation's leading federal law enforcement agency the department of justice will do its part I believe the police chiefs and law enforcement officials and leaders around the country are committed to ensuring that racism plays no part in law enforcement and that everyone receives equal protection of the laws well that may or may not be true but it is still the goal to which we all should aspire to help I'd like to take a break and I'd love to get your level of confidence in the Attorney General bill blocked he has laid down the markers let us we've course will follow if his actions to support his words I will be deeply surprised him badly disappointed if they don't because I do think that he is in a very important most important control puts position in the country but I hear in the tone of his voice and I hear and I believe from what I know about him from what little I know about him this is an Attorney General that wants to see this done right six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty is the number all points of view are welcome let's just light it up and have at it we talked last night and we will talk for many days and probably for many weeks about difficult conversations I'd like to begin the conversation tonight and what level of support what level of confidence is a better word did you have in the words and ultimately the actions of the United States Attorney General William Barr we're back after this side with Dan

"A statement in regards to George Ford step okay so what side did you take maybe yes I I took the side that I understand where the the fury was the word they use the players are furious that the that they get bigger company didn't say anything urgent right okay okay where site and then now what was your argument my argument was everyone wants people to make forced statements for obvious things do you think it is there I said is there a single team or group that's come out and said we agree that that about the cop killing George flight now so we all agree that was wrong right we all agree peaceful protests are good we all agree riding and looting is bad the end people want every team every head coach every player to come out and say that no one no one's arguing against it but there's no controversy that we all agree on those all those principles other than people who are actually riding including everyone else agrees that that is bad ninety nine point nine percent of the ria right right exactly yeah so why does every it just like I can't believe we haven't heard from the colts yet well while you're waiting for the cold to tell you that the cop killing that guy Georgia Floyd was wrong peaceful protests are good and riding a looting is bad why it's a I said the Jerry it's like saying tell me the tell me you Love Me I'm asking for it it will I just didn't understand why the whole unlike for Mike Florio's like I can't believe only three head coaches have come out against you want these people and why do you need that why I could legally deal was saying about turn off I don't I don't need mark Chernoff tujhe scratch out an email and say enter common WFAN are very against what happened in Minnesota we are for peaceful protests we're against looting and right these are all obvious things yeah I know I think I think of the bigger picture however is is that they're denouncing racism is what they're doing everyone's denouncing it no one's going out saying I'm for racism no one I know that I know that I know I understand that but I think there is a collective soul in this country that has been touched and that's what we've been doing this for years and years and years riding happened after the Rodney king thing nothing changed what do you want to change actually things I I I I personally think things have changed but then again I don't live in that community despite a wide in LA or because of the George Floyd thing so I understand that I am doing well they're also protesting to peacefully there there's two separate things going on but but but when you have a violent protesters ET races the peaceful protesting so what happened in Asbury park last night was peaceful protest thing up until eight o'clock when the curfew was in fact a set then at nine thirty nine thirty ninety minutes after when the police tried to disperse people they were like oh the police enforce this in turn this into violence know that you're supposed to get off the street know what I'm amazed that the people who live in the suburbs who do not deal with the police hating the police I don't understand that if you live in the suburbs and you live in a a well off community and you're never dealing with the police why do you hate the police I don't under I don't understand and I understand that I don't I can't be in the shoes of the people who live in black communities but I mean the shoes of the people who live in the suburbs and why the majority of these people now we're coming out against the police I don't understand our turn off just taxi said that you guys can announce the warm up shows now back to twenty minutes my Twitter feed this morning is filled with people who I hate the police that I don't think based on where they're living or dealing with the police so why do you hate the police well they don't hate him if they call my mom one image actually and I wished I what I wish we could get a list of everybody else just like you know and then there was a reporter for the Asbury park press who was arrested because ninety minutes after after the first year old curfew arrested him because he wouldn't move he's like I'm depressed I'm not kidding get out when you've got to have some authority to be able to take control of things why do you need to be part of the story mount Cassini's debate right well I was I was arrested I was arrested look at me great no one knows who you are or knows but barely with the Asbury park press is anymore so now you're part of the story congrats for a bit for a day but when the police tell you to leave whether your firemen whether you're a reporter you leave now and this and this comes from hero you're hero I am a hero yes this is a battle on here exactly so I was out so if I was outside right now the police said get back in your house I would be like part of every right to be out here I go okay let me get back in the house yeah I guess I get it I went when it when it when the curfew is eight o'clock and eight oh one the mistake was that they waited ninety minutes later let people protest in ninety one minutes eight oh one get in the house why do you think why do people who don't deal with the police hate the police that is my question for the day okay and the answers that you're getting on Twitter OR I I don't I haven't got I have an S. that direct question it just appears to me based on what people write to me that those living in the suburbs who probably maybe get pulled over once every three years hate the police and I don't understand and then they have a bad experience and they are maybe not you know they they hear about bad experiences so now they're going to be anti police honestly in my whole life being pulled over by the police maybe that to the tune of maybe about a half a dozen times for speeding yeah and my last time was the the time I was going up to Lake Placid it's it's it's not a it very nice reacts action it's not it's just it's the he's doing his job and I busted the law and write me a ticket I know what he's up against when he pulled comes up to your window and you don't look and see what he got earlier window either and and when they do receive a nine one one call they have no idea what they're getting themselves too especially if it's a nine one one call that includes you know some sort of domestic violence some sort of weapon weaponry some some some something going on where people are fighting you know the citizen app tells us everything right right it kind of just basically tells you what's going on and it follows the nine one one calls all around you know the tribeca insight was so horrid that citizen apple's going off like crazy the last couple nights now and and and these are the cops to get called to gold there and I have no idea what they're getting into no matter what community they go to correct all right we do have to say no I understand why this guy was exhausted because I'm exhausted right now yeah well he's he needs he needs to see them make up so maybe in a postgame podcast so make up someone totally true military Hey al yes Jerry kill yourself wow no.

Protests and riots continue across the country

"Hunter show we're talking about what everybody's talking about the riots what to do to stop him no dialogue there's no discussion until the riots and many way shape or form and this is how insidious the antifa mutants are they knew it thank you the nation was United in disgust at the video of the killing of George Floyd things could have been done it really could have been done but and even doesn't want things done they want to destroy the N. T. FOR that has been built up and defended by the left wing media and ignored or cheered on by Democrats they wanted to destroy and they did it they did you can say they agitated but they didn't make anybody smash a window they smashed windows other people piled thrown stole stuff from the apple store so all the good will that was there and all the momentum to actually do something it was destroyed was just and that's what they want they don't want people getting along the left doesn't want people getting along well after what he doing we talking about why you quit Democrats well Keith Ellison member Keith Ellison who is a member of Congress from Minnesota he was the number two guy at the democratic national committee's Democratic National Committee vice chair he ran for chairman he lost to Tom Perez he was vice chair he is now Attorney General of the state of Minnesota he is a proud supporter of antifa he's also a proud supporter of Louis Farrakhan what what do you think you're gonna get when you elect that let's go to Alex in Baltimore Alex thanks for holding welcome Hey I didn't really talk about anti fur over real quick you go back and look at all the people that interacted over the years especially the inauguration antifa whiskey off in DC people if people are released they're they're let off of charges so a lot of yeah so there's a lot of a lot of support all the charges and all the arrests on inauguration day and all the stores smashed in the cars burned all the charges were dropped eventually into right away because there would have been angered by like what the hell you mean you're not going to charge these people they charge him and then when they thought people would be enough time had passed and people weren't looking they grab the churches don't always what I what I wanna make two points first of all this is gonna sound we're taking tacky but this isn't really a protest you know protest isn't in the constitution you look at what it says it says you have it you can reach out to Mando government a redress of grievances what is that mean it means you can also send me details okay okay but you know if you're not going to the legislators with legislation stating what you want and it's not really a protest going on young at cops I hate you it's not gonna change anything and are stupid people in this country that really think something's going to come from that you need if if there's something to be changed it got to be done to the law otherwise it's not a standard that we can uphold right so and the other thing I want to talk about you got guys like Tony and there was an African American gentleman I didn't catch is intro but our service members service members not Fred and you feed the attitude there the servicemembers said you mentioned and just what you mentioned in the intro here you mentioned that Antipolis breaking the windows and the guy said you were you brought up the looting and he said well it's white people breaking the windows what are black people supposed to do and then you mentioned black on black crime he said well that's why people give and god you know there's no there's the added to that black people don't have any agency that they can't possibly make decisions for themselves and therefore they can't be held accountable you know uncomfortable conversations Cody wants to have uncomfortable conversations I'm looking at FBI crime statistics right now from the last twenty years okay and I'm not talking about per capita total killings it over to one every year black people killing white people over white people killing black people and then when you take into account that they're only thirteen percent of the population and we've all we've been over sixty percent the last twenty years you realize that the rate is eight to one you know we have that conversation or is that racist the ADL says if you've mentioned that if you mention that constituted different across different races you're racing so we're we're not allowing ourselves to have a real conversation that need to be set when these rights happen the next day you shouldn't be able to protest because like I said they're not really asking for anything specific I we know black lives matter we know if George Ford name okay but what change is gonna come from that one of the laws we can pass and and what can we do and as far as eighty four trump's been such a disappointment I really think that that declaration of that being a terrorist organization will be refunded before the election if not it within the week well he has to make it first he hasn't he the president any disappointment in this too but the the responsibility for situations like this doesn't really rest with the president of the United States he he is you know he's the guy the local authorities and then the state authorities and then if they ask for federal help then the federal government immediately short of declaring martial law the president can can't do a lot but he should be saying things a rather long just tweeting things there's rumors that there's going to be at an address today but we'll see the the executive order on censorship real quick with my last point he should have been all that many of the social media companies and get away with being a publisher and a platform and executive order he did sort of almost motivates them to be a publisher which is going to lead to more censorship of the occasion hold and then as a platform that's what we want that that way no American can be denied access and it doesn't if you take the responsibility off of the social media companies then they have no excuse to censor people he did the opposite as well what will happen what could happen and it's got to be changed by law not by statute completely to be fully effective but what would happen is a couple of lawsuits lost would cause them to have to make an uncomfortable choice and that uncomfortable choice would likely lead to them going back to being a platform and and that's that's this step bid there was there's no way the president can act and get it all the way around the bases on his own it takes legislation legislation is being drafted but the house Democrats are never going these are their donors these are the people that they support they're never going to allow it to happen but next time Republicans are in charge maybe something will happen but it's also possible that much squishy Republicans won't do anything about it anyway Eddie in Atlanta thanks for calling in any here are your core let United healthcare plan it could have been stopped on Friday after protesters I've with there and sports physical stuff goes out over the falls in the broadcast in long enough for me to hear one line from the woman is free but far fairer for Daniel Farke is you should white people have the effective gains so basically that that kind of day you'll going on down there when the framers are with their permit was over with our mayor put police off a bicycle as the first or in line at the CNN building police officer were thrown to the ground by I white woman in a white man and he got up off the ground and the police did nothing I come alive after they wanna burn the city down you watch and it went from that to three in the emissary spray paint everything but not windows and then from there they started well Hey if they don't let us have free reign here so they started busting all the cars that meet certain party everything they are mayor get on TV at ten o'clock and said y'all just need to go home well you know she's not quite helpful future bottoms of these people were too busy having fun born in the town down but they're not they're stealing TV's they're not watching TV either at his house I think they're going to zero in on TV yeah and basically the keeper of please get rid of the master barbers down there the state troopers were down there and nobody did nothing they just let him into it and it's just like a kid if you say your this is very important the police on the grounds that you're violating the law get out of the street okay and then the police to come down there to vote thanks same street as always they won't get a credit down here in the whole thing started because people are blocking traffic and you know ratcheting it up you know they like every fifteen to trample people out of cars and stuff you have to stop stuff like this when it starts right as it starts or you're not gonna be able to stop it that's why they are mayor of DC the mayor of DC setting an eleven PM curfew okay that's really late and stupid but it didn't matter because until at least two thirty in the morning they were marching around smashing and looting they still were in Georgetown they were smashing and looting and beating up store owners who are trying to protect their property so if you have an eleven PM curfew and it doesn't mean anything then what's the point of the curfew it's failed leadership R. block is is saying that the the the everything is been messed up by the police the police are the ones that have sparked the violence which is not not true they've please send anything yeah the wealth the Huffington post had a thing I try to find it but it was their headline was police turned violent or something like that police turned violent against protesters like the right now I'm listening to you it's because they've turned out to be as they enter the comedy store but there's no news on there anymore during the day they are I was so embarrassed by that the networks ABC CBS the local affiliates here thank you well we don't do this in Atlanta this is not it Lana and they were just very code everything is so pathetic in the M. at one point one I got himself I believe in buying the place this is all well maybe I didn't say that right you know yeah the slip but yeah the the headline in the Huffington post yesterday was copper age colon police violence nationwide and there's pictures of riders okay okay yeah Rosenstein's report if you know any fourth of ten thirty and it's not a qualified so maybe they'll get serious after fever come to town tomorrow to go to work what's it feel like tomorrow you start putting that very well in there and they still didn't do anything they start the place started closed down but nothing happened it's very simple you have a friend with north south east and west for most of March and then you close in just like you did when you got it got scrapped the rob a bank is in the works and then you and then you just arrested and taken to jail get him off the street yep particular you know what to do any needs the people in leadership down I appreciate the phone call stay safe in Atlanta and keep listening to my radio sucks compared to this anyway let's go to Tim and hands into him hello yes it was terrible what happened at man but the looting this takes away from the whole calls on it and Nancy said it's opportunism masking as outrage it really is they have left wing agitators know exactly what to do they do this for a living they did they did they practice constantly up in Portland for the entirety of the trump administration every weekend in Portland there days over every week they have a day of rage where they they harass people they beat on cars as they drive past they get really angry they destroy things every once in awhile and the mayor of there lets it go and it doesn't make the national news because it's Democrats doing the Democrats are gonna are gonna criticize their base they've got the vote of the people in the street white black doesn't matter they got their vote they're not going to criticize and they don't have to criticize and there is no amount of destruction that can cause them to go Hey wait a second we probably shouldn't be doing this it's it's O. K. blue let it go
