Members of the jury are these your unanimous verdicts? They are unanimous verdicts. Yeah, that makes me want to cry, bro I mean, I'm getting emotional because being directly involved with this, you one thing I will say is when I was test when I was testifying I don't want to make this about me, but I want people to understand the evil that's involved with this. When I was testifying Charlie on the stand and the prosecution, I don't know if the tape caught this, but when the prosecutors, every time I would say rioter vandal, Luther, anytime I would say the truth, they would just laugh at me and shake their head. And during the middle of that while I was testifying, it just dawned on me like this is this is evil. This is evil because I know what the truth is and these people are laughing at me like I'm lying. When in reality, it's them laughing at the truth. It's inverted. It's backwards. And people need to understand this is the reality of the evil that's in the justice system. And today it's Kyle rittenhouse, but tomorrow it could be you. And that's right. And what Kyle represented was a test of the integrity of our system. Which is our system still one that allows due process, the rule of law, cross examination of witnesses, checks and balances, and some people say no. Some people's our courts are all rigged.

Old jennifer anandas. I'd say you should continue with a serious level of mistrust for those. Who are telling you what you need to do. What you can't do I can't even you know in fifth grade. I was told i could. Maybe aspire to be a teacher secretary or a nurse but otherwise being a mom would be great. And if i had taken added by heart as so many of my classmates had done i wouldn't have had the life i've had and i don't know what the equivalent is. That people are being told today that so many students. I talked to Want to be a researcher or an academic work in an ngo and and those are not really going to be much help for those who are trying to put food on the table for their kids. i do think we we owe it to each other be a little more compassionate a little bit more informed and a little more pragmatic and practical about Dedicating your life to Improvement of the human condition here in california and elsewhere rather than the study. are there significant matters relating to environment energy or related issues that you've worked in about which you've changed your mind over time.

And so it's like well silicon valley's at least booming still. Let's build that housing where we said we would and i got completely stopped by those who said nope we gotta do the california environmental quality act. We gotta do price labor agreements. It's going to be four or five six years of telling people like me What to do and paint people like me by the hour Instead of paying people who would actually build that housing was shocking shocking development. And since then i've come to question the very foundation of that concept it turns out rentals or terrible idea for life. It really is important to to get into homeownership for family stability welfare. I didn't i didn't appreciate that It turns out that density housing is the most expensive housing we know how to build the about the complexities of steel frames and elevators and redundant life safety systems.

"When i was reporting this episode i interviewed marlins shirley for hours my producers and i were captivated by his story. He was charismatic charming. We thought we had this episode ready to go until we did a routine check and found something in shirley's past something that had been overlooked in march two thousand when he was twenty one years old shirley got into an argument in his home with his ex girlfriend. According to the sheriff's report she wanted to leave but surely took her keys and refused to let her go. He grabbed her pushed her and at one point struggle. She said he slammed the door on her hand. He was arrested and pled guilty to a charge of gross misdemeanor assault about seven months after the incident. He was winning medals at the paralympics. As far as i can tell this has never been reported. He was never mentioned in any of the interviews or the glowing profiles about marlin shirley as he became the face of the paralympics in the early. Two thousands given that this podcast. We'll be exploring gender based violence. I needed to learn more my producers. And i tried contacting shirley's ex girlfriend but she in return our messages. She didn't wanna talk to us. And we respect that. But i still needed to reach out to shirley and ask if he would talk about it on the record. I wasn't sure how he'd respond. Would he be defensive hostile what he talk about it at all the important thing to me was to get on and actually talk to you guys. It's just man when you concert next violence. It's important that we hold ourselves and each other. Countable there's no way to put it softly. It was what i did and it was horrible and it was frightening. I did this. And i'm sorry listening to shirley i was kind of taken aback. It's rare to hear someone who's committed domestic violence especially a public figure talk about it with such candor domestic violence domestic violence. There's no level of not that bad. there's no excuse for any of it doesn't matter it was one time it only takes one time like there's all kinds of ways to get out of this kind of stuff i mean. Come on there is. There's no way. I want to get out of this. No way acts not even look at my family. If i tried to get away with it. Like there's there's just not going to happen. I couldn't live with myself. Had i done. And that would have been something that would actually haunt me. It was a horrible day horrible mistake and one that wasn't repeated shirley seems sincere. He appeared to take accountability. Doesn't excuse what he did but it seems if he learned from his mistake we looked around and as far as we can tell. There haven't been any other charges like this against him as we keep going here in dig. Deeper and oscar pistorius is story. We're going to examine his behavior leading up to the murder of reva steenkamp and how he responded afterward to. I think there are a lot of lessons to be learned here about how we treat our sports heroes. How we fall in love with their stories and how that causes us to overlook certain things about them and the real consequences of doing that in pistorious his case. We're going to piece it all together and by the end of this series. Maybe we'll have a better understanding of how he became an icon and how a tragedy like is murder could have happened. I'm tim ruin. And this is false idol. Next time he would bring a nation together. Where no matter your background your race your gender your religion when we talked about.

"After the two thousand paralympics it fellows if marlins shirley and brian frasure would dominate the sport for years the com- like shirley. Brian grow up dreaming of being paralympian. Brian actually grew up having both his biological fee. He ran track in high school and he played intramural sports in college and north carolina state in the early nineties. It was also during college. The brian picked up an odd hobby. There are train tracks that run right through the nc state campus in a few guys brainstorm decided they wanted to see who could hop the most trains at one semester even had a leaderboard in the hallway and at that point unfortunately my competitive side kick. Dan and i thought to myself. Oh i'm clearly the fastest guy in the sweet. I could crush these guys that this one night is sophomore year. Brian was in his dorm doing homework when he heard a train off in the distance ran out to the tracks. But this time everybody was just kinda standing back looking at the train. Like deer in headlights and they're like no way. I'm going after this. It's too fast but not me. I think i can catch this. I take off. Normally they run alongside the train hop on one of the latter's stay on for a little bit and then jump off but right when i went for the latter i slept and lost my footing and the train immediately jerk me off my feet i like go ahead and roll but i rolled back into the train and it came directly across the ankle on my left foot doctors amputated. Brian's left-foot lying in the hospital. He wondered if he'd ever walk again. And fortunately for me my prostate is was also an amputee himself and he was actually the one pushing me to set my sights on becoming a paralympic sprinter. Not only did he become a paralympian. He went to school to be a prostitutes to. I really felt compelled to be able to work with other patients to really sorta pass along that torch just like my first process. Did frazier would go on to get a job. With one of the leading providers of prosthetic legs. He was the unique paralympian. Who understood the technology that he and shirley and the rest of the sprinters were running on then in two thousand. Four frazier received a request from one of his colleagues instead. Yeah hey brian. There's this kid. And south africa's names oscar story as he's been following your career. He's really interested in getting involved in competing in the paralympics. But he's been running on these homemade legs san. let's try to get some running feet made for oscar. At the time oscar pistorius was an unknown. He was shimin ten year old kid from south africa. A bilateral amputee missing both of his lower limbs who picked up spurning earlier that year as a way to recover from a rugby injury then he started entering races and putting up some fast times. It was actually kind of common for top paralympic springer's to essentially come out of nowhere. Look at what happened with marlin shirley and so frazier invited the stories to visit him in raleigh north carolina. I remember walking up to their hotel. Room knocked on the door and oscar. Just kinda comes rushing up with this huge smile on his face a mouthful of braces and he just walked right up to me. Brian and i reached out my hand to shake his hand and he just came in for a big bear hug. And i felt like we sort of bonded just right out of the gate by then paralympian running on prosthetic legs. That look like blades frazier. Philip is stories with the latest technology the cheetah flex foot carbon-fiber running legs made by oeser. These are the blazes. Paralympian 's ran on the ones that pistorious would eventually make famous the ones that look like an upside down question. Mark as stories tried out his new legs. Frazier marvel that athleticism the ease of his stride. And i remember the first time. We got his alignment to the point where he could just really open up and sprint for the first time and i just remember thinking to myself. Oh shit what have i created. There's my competition for this year and the paralympics. Even so frazier took mysterious under his wing. They worked out together. Had dinners together and frazier top stories. All he could about being a pair olympia now. Histories need to see how his legs held up against real competition. He and frazier at both registered. Competed attract me hell near oklahoma city in the two hundred meter. Race frazier jumped out to an early lead. I remember in that race. I came off. Turn and you can always tell if an athlete's of close to unite then and with the prosthetic slot can here it to just kind of that. Thud the prosthetic on the track and at about the one eighty mark started to kind of relax a little bit and i was just gonna cruise on end and all of a sudden. All i hear was don't don't don't don't don't don't an oscar just goes right by the at the finish line. We got the dinner that night and he was like. Do you think actually have a chance to metal and the paralympics. And i was like well considering you just beat the fastest amputee in the world of the two hundred i would say your chances are pretty good. The two thousand four athens paralympics. Were only a few months away and to win. Gold destroys would have to go through. Both brian frazier and marlon shirley. When pistorius arrived in athens shirley didn't know much about him. Stories had only taking up competitive running eight months prior. I had heard about him. But i never pay attention to it. I was his own world. Damone thank. I really didn't even have on my radar then surely watched pistorious race frazier in a two hundred meter. Qualifying heat gun goes off and he's still in the blocks any looks like to the right and the left. Quick at the guy who's only gun guys like do go out and turn my head to the right and oscar is still down on all fours and he looked at me like what the hell just happened so felt like i had this locked up and showed about one eighty. I started to ease off. And then one more time. I hear that. Don't don't don't don't don't don't and oscar goes blowing by me again. And i have the up close and personal experience of watching this man. Take off. And noli catch brian. Pass brian and zoom down. The back end of the track. He's store the best we had world was nothing then. Pistorious beat shirley and frazier both in the two hundred meter final in one gold. The veterans have been put on notice. Pistorius had arrived. Pistorious is rapid success as attracted an enormous amount of media attention particularly in his homeland but historians as much a role model as the country's rugby or football players. Four years later at the two thousand eight paralympics pistorious swept gold in the one hundred two hundred and four hundred meter races. He had taken the crown from shirley he was now. The undisputed fastest amputee in the world and the international media was starting to take notice. Here's clare balding again. Timing is everything and as a movement is gaining traction and attention into its midst comes of young good looking talented athletes. He's eloquent and he's charming and he was winning everything over all distances in everybody's going okay. Who's this guy. Stories was running so fast. He had begun competing in races against able bodied athletes. His hope was that some day he could qualify for the olympic games. No amputee sprinter had ever done that before. He was positioned shelf as more than a paralympian. He was a trailblazer. Not only was he a paralympian that could translate to general sports fans. He just wanted to see a big event but also he could pop up on the front page of a magazine dressed like mortal and look like a film star. Oscar was able to take what pioneers of the sport like marlin and i had done and as far as scratching and clawing getting some sponsorship and.

And damn i got sprint. Surely had no clue then. The coach brought into a track meet for paralympic athletes for people with disabilities. I had never seen really another amputee or anything like that. And i will. I just couldn't believe i. These is were the slight insane. Amazing just don't like you would expect an athlete to be built their intimidating as hell. This coach introduced him to this whole new world for people just like him. These people look like professional athletes. All muscle tone the only difference they were running prosthetics to compensate for their missing limbs and they performed like professional athletes to their times rolling a few seconds behind their olympic counterparts shirley at found his passion is life purpose over the next few years shirley began training with top pair olympic sprinters and coaches setting sights on the two thousand paralympics in sydney. Along the way he met another american sprinter whose only a few years older than him. Brian frasure frazier was supposed to be the next big thing and the beginning. We weren't really that good friends and we just looked at each other as competitors. And i remember marlins showing up to a race in california and marlon wasn't actually competed there. He was just there sort of scoping out the scene and it was just staring at me. Like i'm coming after you. And and i just remember looking everything going. Who is this kid glaring at me. After that frazier and shirley would often see each other on track circuit. They were usually two of the best runners in a race. They pushed each other and in time. They became friends when they arrived in sydney. For the two thousand paralympics. They chose the room together. The decision seemed odd. They were technically supposed to be rivals going into the hundred meter final. They were two of the top contenders you know. I was the favourite at the time and he was certainly getting faster and faster and knew he was going to be my primary competition going into that race but that recent particular it was like someone shot him out of a cannon and i knew the race was over in the first three steps to the united states trimming streaming down the line for show biddle soon but did i win the gold medal. I broke the world record. I absolutely smash record of broken by three tenths of a second surely took a victory lap around the track basking in the cheers then later that night. He went back out into the stadium. I've got the whole olympic stadium empty. So i walk out to the grass area in the middle and I'm just looking up at the torch and his thing like he's to believe this surely left. Sydney having won the gold medal in the hundred meter dash and the silver medal in the hijo. At twenty two years old he become the fastest. Amputee in the world shirley's life changed overnight when he got back to utah. They threw a parade gave him a key to the city and declared it. Marlins shirley day president bill clinton invited him to the white house along with the rest of the us olympic team. I ask all the team here. So that i could forgive them for completely destroying my sleep habits for several weeks. I've got the president of the united states right side. I've got the first lady at my left side. And i'm putting the jacket on bill clinton and giving his speech at the white house. Mr president on behalf of the entire two thousand euros paralympic team. We are to have you as a teammate. Thank you mr president. Hillary and chelsea surely gave interviews and made appearances something keeps happening over and over. Maybe an engagement. Or i'd be on a live interview and he asked about how the special olympics were. It was oh good for you. Compete in special olympics. Of course the paralympics and special olympics are two very different events. The special olympics were founded in the nineteen sixties by eunice kennedy shriver jfk. Sister she created the event for people with intellectual disabilities and it's been an incredibly important event for millions of people. The idea for the paralympics starting late nineteen forties when hospital in. Great britain began organizing athletic events for injured war veterans. The general idea was to create event for people with physical disabilities in time. It expanded to include countries around the world. It became essentially another version of the olympics. Two contestants wheelchairs the from being sportsman by the late eighties organizers were staging the event in the same city as the olympics only a few weeks after the also gave it an official name. The paralympics the name paralympic. A lot of people. Think something's paraplegic. It's not permanent pickens parallel to the olympics. That's clear balding. She's covered six for the bbc and channel four tv networks in uk and. She's one of the foremost experts on the spore. She covered her first paralympics in two when marlon shirley made his big arrival back then. The games were nearly impossible to find on. Tv and she noticed. Journalists didn't take it too seriously. They treated paralympic athletes. Maybe sometimes still do as an oddity as a sideshow as a something that that must be owner. Let's find out how they lost their legs rather than. Let's find out what trainings been going. Like and who they see as their biggest rivals you know and i could see in press conferences. Sometimes athletes is start lower lincoln seriously. One country that was particularly lacking in its paralympics. Coverage was the united states at one point. Balding asked around about why that might be what came back was. Oh it's because we cover the special olympics. And i said but that's that's not the same then in the early two. Thousands here came. Marlins shirley and brian frazier to americans who brought a bit of star power to the paralympics. I would gave brian fraser in modern shelly. Lots of credit for making a bit more rock and roll. You know they made it interesting and fun. You'd watch them and think yeah. This seems quite cool. Actually i want to be a part of it. I wanted to be the world's fast santee in to matter. The world's fastest amputee. I was just gonna make sure that when people thought of disabled sports athletes built to penetrative hungry and be able to relate with people from all types across the country across the world surely recognized that the sport needed stars like him to help it grow the helps cement its status in the landscape. He won to espy awards. Sports illustrated wrote a lengthy profile of him and he landed a number of high profile. Endorsements visa home depot even mcdonalds. He'd come a long way from being that little boy wandering. The streets of las vegas asking for a happy meal thought that right on the base very happy meal and cup you know in america i was just sent a position where i just had a bigger vision of everything and i just wanted to make it larger than life by giddy endorsing cited. You know large companies. I felt it was a way to legitimize the sport but surely never broke through like he thought he would his time. At the top was ultimately cut short because justice his career took off a new challenger arrived someone who take the baton from him. Whether he's ready.

I did a few little run up the tracks. Kind of get that energy from the crowd. Going and i could just feel that little little tiny zinger in the back of my aquiles surely took his place in the starting blocks. He told himself. It's only ten seconds. I'll be fine and dislike that we're gone and my muscle memory just took over and is quick as race started. It ended marley here. Kuzma story has. The story is barely singleton at the line. What happened to shirley. He hit hard surely had ruptured his achilles midway through the race. I was actually really embarrassed. I just wanted to get out of there.

You know trying to hold back some tears and grabbing my ankle brian. frasure shirley's best friend. I've been running the knicks lane over and thank god. Brian was there just for seniors. Run across that line and comeback for me. If i had and had him there for me at that moment i don't know what i would have done. He picked me up and always be indebted to him. He made that moment tolerable eventually.

Yeah so and. I'm not here to judge anyone but for me has been. I want to make sure that my daughter is proud. That i'm going through the formation that she doesn't resent that years ago through it and not only that she feels part of this journey That she is also there so one of the way. We decided to do that for my wife to be there on those weekly events Where the the next day. There's an exam or there is a homework so she's there to support my daughter while i'm not because she doesn't feel that my parents are taken away is my dad because that the responsibility but my mommies here okay. So that's why she's not taking the classes view but that is an option. Okay that is an option. Oh so in our case it's working really well But i would. I believe that.

Ended affected him his whole life also resolved to a bad that right and that more slightly that experience with their parents until on So that that showed me that coup am i to watch but also how wonderful east when you can bring hope to those people. I talked to some of them. They've been thirty years in jail. One of them joined when he was eighteen. He was forty eight when i talked to him. Wow and when you're able to show them the face of jesus lofty task for them forgiveness and held them to forgive. There's nothing better than there.

"We are having a conversation today with Jose Hernandez and we started talking before I started recording for our official conversation. And I asked you where had gone to law school, assuming because we're talking about Lord Fairfax Community College. I live in my own bubble and assumed you were a local guy and that is not at all the case. So Jose tell me a little bit about what you were doing in high school. And what brought you to Lord Fairfax Community College. Yes, to be honest. Like I was in high school in 2000 from 2013 to 2015 at the high school in New York City in Far Rockaway Queens. I saw earlier because I came first the United States in 2013 when I was sixteen years old pair of my family was giving in Queens New York my mother and father. So I came from Salvador that is a Central American country. And then I have to learn you know English I had to learn wage. Culture and traditions that this beautiful country offers that is the United States and so I was there in New York City, but I also have like family here living in Winchester, Virginia. It came full circle. Yes. It was where I did my high school in two years and and have something like that and so at the high school in New York and they've finished their and because my parents are from El Salvador and we have like this like feeling or inclusiveness and we try to keep the family united. So that's why we moved. We just a beginning because parent my other family was living here. I cannot even begin to comprehend how complicated it must be to come to a brand new country where you don't speak the language and have to start school. What was that experience? Like it was a little difficult because of the language and basically this one thing that is very difficult. Also because there is like I was living in a city so the difficult part of sometimes living in a city when it is a big city, like for example to try continue the summer After High School, sometimes it's difficult because to be honest with you I learn English in high school, but when I came to try to like more than high school because I had the home in fate to continuing my education to go college to go university. But at the same time I was a first-generation student. I was you know, the first one that you went to high school and not the way try to go college so it was difficult because you don't know how to do things sometimes and that's a lot of pressure. Yes. It is. I went to a school in a suburb home idea, you know my Elementary School my middle school thing. I even did my high school over there. So the thing it is like While it was it was a I got support from my family and I have support from the population the Latino population around in your city and I have so many friends over them and they held me even to other school because basically I wasn't at school. I was studying in an adult learning center just learning English because we don't even know how to sign out to the school and anything because I was the first one in game my parents they didn't have, you know, the opportunity to put a kid in school. So basically one afternoon that I was playing soccer with my friends, they asked me because they were wearing the same age as me. Where are you going to in which high school are you in and I just explained it to them know. I'm sorry, but I don't go to high school because I don't know what it is. So they say no we have to take this guy so he can play too with us in the soccer team and that's how we win. That's how to getting in high school by friendship Sports Club. Sports they don't inspect the sports. Yeah, so that's how I went there. So, like I said, it was difficult because of the language but it made so many friends from all over Iraq war and at the same time I have the feeling of supporting from the teachers and everything. It was a really good experience, even though I sometimes was really frustrating because I'm in the first year. I knew I understood a lot of words that I wasn't able to speak for my teachers and things like that because I don't even know how to respond in the English language and that stuff mm imagine because you have the answer. You know, what the answer is you just can't verbalize the answers so that she knows that you know, yeah, so it's very difficult. But you know that there are a lot of transitions in life. So you're not you need to like try to stay like humble and try to do the best because sometimes you have to pursue age. Buildings in order to reach. So what brought you to Lord Fairfax Community College because I moved here to Winchester Virginia. And I remember that came and looked for the school's it was a teacher on mobile device or that I talked to in Henry High School that she taught me about Lord Fairfax Community College and other schools there people are more Fairfax Community College did a job for me because at the moment my English is not in at the college level at the moment. It was a team that I needed because to be honest if I still being in New York and tried to go school there. I know that I may be wrong or something like that. But because they were a lot of students like a hundred and fifty students for in a classroom, but in still here in Northwest Community College have classes life with Thirty thirty-five twenty. It was the right spot for me because they held me and and like I said, like I even have to take ESL classes when I was there some people Can say like maybe that was a still I still back because I explained one year just learning ESL classes, but it wasn't because without a year in all the health on the home from the program. I was in be able to be at the college level you needed to have one in order to get to the other. Yes. Sometimes we want to run and do the things quickly but thighs it is not a way some people, you know, they have like, you know, they live here they were here the so they have like more opportunities and they have the time and the language all those things but you have to be perseverance and have patience. So I understand you are attending JM you you're at James Madison University. Now, did you graduate lf-cc and they'll go on to JM you.

"Airing on net flicks right now called kid killer inside the mind of Aaron Hernandez now. I would be negligent if I did not address that the sports world lost another legend. This past Sunday a Kobe Bryant was among the victims of a helicopter. Copter crash in Calabasas in which nine people died in total in an accident there shocked many of us to our course now there are a lot of opinions koby both professionally and personally but I choose today to focus on the ways. He improved the world around him. Bryant was the official ambassador for the after school all stars. That's an American nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive after school programs to children in thirteen. US Cities Bryant also started the Kobe Bryant China Fund which partner with the Soon Shiong Ling UNCF foundation a charity backed by the Chinese government. The Kobe Bryant China Fund raises money within China earmarked for education and health programs. Oh grants and then on November four twenty. Two and Brian Appeared Long Zach. BRAFF at the call of duty black ops launch at the Santa Monica Airport art where they presented a one million dollar check to the call of Duty Endowment and activision founded nonprofit organization that helps veterans transition into civilian careers after their military service has ended Bryant established. Kobe Inc to owning grow brands in the sports industry me The initial investment was attempts at stake in the body armor super drink company for six million dollars in March. Two thousand fourteen in those. Those headquarters are in Newport beach. California with the Coca Cola company purchasing a minority stake in the company in August twenty eighteen the valuation of Bryant stake rose to approximately two hundred million dollars now on August Twenty Second Twenty Sixteen Bryant and his business partner Geoff. STIEBEL launched a venture capital firm focused on different businesses including media data gaming and technology with one hundred million dollars in funding in two thousand eighteen. Bryant became the first African American to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film and the first former professional athlete to be nominated and to win an academy award in any category for his film dear basketball. He's also been a very very vocal spokesperson about equality in sports world and he was very interested in owning a WNBA frying freia franchise and his beautiful little daughter. Jonah who passed away with him was a rising sports star. And I'm pretty pretty sure that if she had been given seven more years she would be in the WNBA following and dad's footsteps. But we know at nine six. Am Pacific Standard Time on January. Twenty six twenty twenty. A helicopter owned by Bryant departed from John Wayne Airport. In Orange County California -fornia it had nine people aboard those people included Brian in Gina and then genus peers and near parents including Orange Coast College baseball coach John Atta belly. His wife Kerry and daughter Eliza Sarah Chester and her daughter Peyton basketball coach Christina Mouser and pilot Ara Zubin. The helicopter was registered to the film. More based Island Express Holding Company according to the California Secretary of State Business Database group was traveling to Brian's Mamba Academy for practice session when when the helicopter crashed in Calabasas due to light rain in foggy weather that morning the LAPD helicopters in most other air. Traffic were grounded rounded the flight tracker shows that the helicopter experienced issues while above the La Zoo. The helicopter circled the area six times at an altitude. The two of around eight hundred fifty feet at nine thirty. AM The pilot contact at the Burbank. Airport's control tower notifying defying the Tower of the situation at that time the helicopter experienced extreme fog and turned south towards the mountains in nine forty eighty eight. AM The helicopter climbed in altitude from twelve hundred to two thousand feet flying at one hundred sixty one knots and by nine forty five am. The helicopter crashed into the side of a mountain calabasas about thirty miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles this and it caught on fire of the authorities were called and the fire had been extinguished by ten. Thirty Eight M. None of the nine occupants survived initial reports indicate that the helicopter crashed in the heels above calabasas in heavy fog the other surviving Bryant family members are Vanessa and their other three daughters. It seems like the World Kinda paused when the announcement announcement was prematurely. Made of Kobe's death Dan. There was a shameful shuffle by those of us who don't trust one new site over for the other I needed corroboration before I could even begin to believe that Kobe Bryant had passed away. I say it's shameful because I I remember a time in my life that if something was on the news it had been vetted and could be trusted. This fucked up. Twenty four hour news cycle and the ambulance chasers. TMZ have made retractions par for the course in. This story was no different It was first reported. Had Five people were killed then. It was reported that all of his daughters had been on the helicopter. Then it said seven people were killed it is absolutely lutely shameful damn near criminal to be reporting things before you even have the story and before the family he is notified so all of the scrambling and false reporting just to be able to say we were first so true crime by the look like to offer condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this horrific accident and issue indictments to the media for being being soulless in with all that being said I'm I'm sure everyone has their own opinion on this whole Oh. Kobe Bryant The way his death was handled by the media. And I would love to hear from you about it now. Let's dig into the topic of today's episode Aaron Hernandez now the documentary outlined his early life his college years ears and finally his time in the NFL. It also indicates that he may have been living a triple life at the heart of it all it. It raises the questions. Could he have been helped. Could some of his behavior be a byproduct of being raised in an abusive environment. Arment did football contribute to his violent behavior. And these questions are really left to the viewer and I absolutely have my Own Opinions on Aaron. Just know that you may not agree with me. And that's okay but there does need to be a dialogue because discussing the end debating this Aaron Hernandez a situation may prevent another Aaron Hernandez from being created. Okay so we start at the beginning. Aaron older brother. Dj were being raised in Bristol Connecticut by their father. Dennis and their mother Terry Sorry and Denis is kind of a local legend in football. So there's no surprise that his boys were introduced to the sport early. Dennis is described described as a man's man. Very hyper masculine. He was strict on his boys. Known around town as the king. In when your town calls you the king. Dj in Erin Hat to be his heirs apparent. They may as well have been William and Harry. As far ars he was concerned they were being primed to step in his oversized footprints that meant playing football and being outstanding at it well Erin was outstanding in football and basketball and track. He was an all around athlete but a mediocre student it was the latter that will cause his father to become physically abusive to Erin. He wanted the best for his boys and mediocrity mediocrity wasn't gonNA cut it in it's also noted Denison teary had a tumultuous relationship with each other that included alcoholism some and domestic violence but besides all that Aaron Steele I've idolized his dad his brother. Dj Hit stated that besides the physical abuse. Aaron may have also been sexual Sexually molested by an older kid. Now these these are things that left unaddressed could turn a man into a monster. We meet the high school quarterback slash friend and Aaron. And we find out that according to you they had sexually experimented with one another the throughout high school now Errands France. The father of his friend was in the documentary as well and talked at length. Talk about how. Both he and Dennis were extremely homophobic. According to him they created an environment they made it impossible possible for the boys to question your sexuality or to identify is anything but heterosexual now. I'm sure we can imagine the conflict that that this can create and the person who does have questions. This likely added to the anxieties of regular teenage shit now. After Dj left for College Aaron was excited to announce that he intended ongoing the Yukon with his brother again following following in the footsteps of Darrow. Dad and then tragedy struck the Hernandez family. Dennis had surgery on a hernia and he ended up passing away after the surgery. Totally unexpected the family was understandably grief. Grief Stricken Family and friends knew that Erin would never be the same. His Dad is rough as he was was errands. Moral all compass without him. Aaron seem directionless. And I'm sure it doesn't help Terry rebounded rather quickly and and really fucked me up. When I heard that she had begun seeing errands cousin's husband not only that that she moved him into the family? Home now imagine being an already troubled young man who just lost his father in. Now you have to deal with dude. You saw all the time with your cousin. And now he's banging your mom. Now that drove Erin out of the home to his cousin. Tania's house now. A lot has been said about Tanya being there for air and how she was a ride or die and and how she felt like she was a mother figure who he could tell anything. But in my estimation Tanya had the anything goes house you know everybody knows somebody that had a household where anything went. Everybody comes there to chill smoke. We niggers running in and out. Eat Do everything you don't won't going on at Your House. You take that shit to tiniest house so she may have been loyal but she was also an enabler here. This young man was free to openly engage in things that he should have at least had to sneak meek to do one of those things was smoking weed. I don't have an issue with marijuana. I wish they would just legalize it for the world to enjoy Oy but not a minor. I'm sorry I just don't think minors are equipped to handle the side effects of marijuana consumption and Nobility of the drug to Kinda take over your life because we know this is me we know that although although it is not a dangerous drug anything over consumed could become dangerous and hand because marijuana has the propensity to chill you all the way out sometimes for hours. That's not that's something that you want a kid having. It can contribute to a spirit of laziness but nobody can say Aaron was a Lazy Kid. The drug has the ability to take over your life and I know what era was trying to achieve. He wanted to dull the pain their life was handing him. Unfortunately he was learning when he sobered up. That pain was still there so he spent the majority of his life from from sixteen years old on like he said if you saw him playing in a game he was high if you saw Liam playing in college he was high. If you saw him playing professionally he was high. He still was a first class athlete. Though so people tended to overlook his negatives and I can empathize with him in this way. I was twelve when my mother passed away away. I was very smart and very athletic and had never been in trouble at school but when she died when my mom died God I began to get into fights. I was angry young lady. I was angry all the time. got got suspended quite a bit it and do you know what straighten out my behavior. The principal Mr Reese heard me using some language they would make Samuel L. Jackson blush. He am I coach. Drag me down to the office and gave me the come to Jesus speech if I intended to continue to represent Lula's high school and the mighty black and gold as an athlete. I could not have another behavior. Blemish on my and I record period being on honor roll. Wasn't gonNA be enough because frankly being on honor roll came easy to me. It was hard to manage my anger and I had to learn to direct my anger in healthy ways admit that I was still hurting from the loss of my mom and not be impulsive and I wanted to continue to play sports with my band of sisters so at strain my ass up but Erin was learning the opposite lesson he could do damn near anything and the fact that he was an outstanding athlete. Athlete was a get out of jail. Free Card there were no repercussions for his bad behaviour. Only cover-ups once again errands foot up behavior savior was being enabled. Now his prowess on the Gridiron meant that a number of D. One universities where interested him as as a player remember Erin had already made a verbal commitment to uconn he still made other college visits however offer and when Aaron was just sigh of seventeen years old he recommitted this time he chose to play at the University of Florida. Boorda alongside Tim Tibo and under Urban Meyer now by now. He was dating Shanna Jenkins who he had known since elementary into reschedule and she would go on to be his fiancee and even mother a child by him. But that's getting a little here. He's he's going to play for Urban Meyer at the University of Florida and Dennis Hernandez has set a path for his sons to follow but Aaron was departing that path in hidden in Florida..

It helps the players hope to clear he's on the looking through our research. We're because they said the depending that was like purchased in full cans Kodo. Listen, mad and forgot the mother shoot. They give that's worse worse than smoking aliens. That's our in Hernandez talking with his friend, Mike pouncey in two thousand fourteen a year later, the NFL players union negotiators slightly more lenient marijuana policy players are still officially banned from using it though a lot of them smoke anyway, Hernandez said he smoked before every single game. The little, bro. Someone. Usually. The subway every game. Yeah. I get that. That was in high school, but Hernandez said he continued getting high before every game he played in college. And in the NFL. Oh, yeah. I mean, a lot of players did it before the games for sure for sure, and I didn't like it for that reason. It was just the responsibility. They to me were unreliable because of the immediate side effects that affect judgment and impairment and never heard anyone do that in the NFL must not have been very good. We'd if he's able to play it, I level stone. But. Yeah. I guess it's possible. Ryan O'Callaghan says he never played a game stoned. But he says he did smoke on off days during his college career in parts of his NFL career to mostly to help manage pain. I went to Berkeley. So I started smoking marijuana. Probably my third year Cal and a lot of guys did a lot of guys on the team did and they started this kind of crackdown drug testing. But they gave us the option of entering this program called safe harbor where you just had to tell a team psychologist that you're smoking, and you were trying to quit, and you were basically your name was taken out of the hats. He wouldn't get called for a drug test. So I ended safe harbor and basically was allowed to smoke. I wanted I was basically always recovering from some sort of injury in college that really helped I was never addicted to painkillers in college. But I took them right after surgery, but that was. About it. But I wanna then he got to the NFL players are tested for marijuana. The test is only once or twice a year in. It's usually around the same time in the spring before the season starts, and you that was coming. So I prepared for that. They've got to the NFL got to New England. I first year there. I I don't think I smoke that much. And then you find out about, you know, there drug testing policy when they do it the repercussions if you get caught and that turned into a big drawback players who test positive multiple times for marijuana can be fined or suspended without pay. But for the most part players who want to smoke have figured out how to get around the testing Hernandez himself actually talked about a friend who helped him beat it test and once players have passed their tests they can typically smoke without getting cut. When you got birth. This tiny start doing. But I got mine, you know, the other big for most of his career O'Callaghan did what Hernandez and his friend marquees pouncey talked about doing hit stop smoking around the time. He knew the test was coming it take the test. And then it starts smoking again. And it worked until two thousand nine his first year with the chiefs when he got cut, and then that puts you in a two year program where you get tested up to five times a month. I believe it is. And if you then test positive again, you get suspended for four games. And then the team finds out for a guy like me that could have been the end of my career if something like that happens. So that's why I couldn't smoke weed anymore, which led to taking more and more painkillers and more and more painkillers which eventually led to an addiction. Adults shouldn't be punished for using cannabis. Specially thoughts that the benefit from it like athletes who can. Can you know use the combination of healing, and you know, pain relief and inflammation reduction in the number of other things that action having Sidey. I mean, there's so so many things that athletes can benefit from without taking pharmaceutical drugs that compared with side effects that also diminished performance on the field. Eugene Monroe says he never smoked marijuana when he was playing in the NFL, even though he was often in a lot of pain. I started taking painkillers after my first surgery and college I hurt my knee. But really that just coincided with the surgery in from there. I I was on a pretty consistent dose of anti inflammatories. Pretty much from them through throughout my career. By the end of it. You know, I try to eliminate those anti-inflammatory drugs because they you know were causing a ton of ton of gastrointestinal issues. So I started doing things a lot more naturally, which is also let me to canvas Monroe says he started research in cannabis while he was still playing in the more. He learned the more convinced he became that. It was better than the other options out there like opioids so in two thousand sixteen he became the first active player to speak out publicly and urge the NFL to end its ban on marijuana at least in states where it's been legalized in some way, the NFL an athlete population in general experiences injuries on a rate that you know, in one season a person who doesn't play a fell football. You know, they might live sixteen lifetimes or more before they have that amount of injury on. Campaign. So it's certainly a different different arena of pain and one that's more constant in perpetual. One that requires a different approach to manage that pain of in opioids, the pain isn't going anywhere. But it needs to be managed somehow in Oakland is not the answer. But Thomas Gill, the former patriots team doctor says cannabis is not the answer either. If you take the NFL out of it, do I think there's a role for cannabis medically, absolutely. With regard to the NFL. Do I think there's a role for cannabis personally? No. Absolutely not. Is no injury. I think in football that happens that for a player on the active roster that would require cannabis first of all Secondly, again, it is a non performance enhancing drug. It's the opposite is gonna be what's the word disinheriting drug. It would negatively affect performance taking cannabis. So I personally do not think it has a role in the NFL at all. Monroe disagrees so much. So that now that he's retired. He's gone into the cannabis business. He's now a partner with green. Thumb industries. Accompany the grows and sells medical marijuana statistically, it's curbed opioid issues to the tune of twenty five percent in states where it's been legalized for medical use in some states. Like, Illinois have been even more progressive in allowing opioids to be replaced by cannabis of you get a prescription a recommendation that you have opiates you, you know, get cannabis in his place the significant especially when you think about that statistic. Again that retired NFL players abuse opioid pain medication at four times the rate of the general population Gill acknowledges that there is an opioid crisis among retired players. If you ask me, do I think there's a problem with tired players. Absolutely. These guys hurt but Gilson? Says he doesn't think that has anything to do with the way NFL. Doctors are prescribing opioids opioids are bigger problems and other sports in football. But I personally had did never saw it in the NFL. I think his comment is is really so far out of touch with reality. It's baffling. I mean, an active player is nothing more than you know, a retired player who has retired yet. The game's gonna end firm. He's gonna retire and being that same position. So it's all related Monroe O'Callaghan Lloyd are all retired now, and they all say they're still in pain that they still feel the effects of injuries. They suffered in the NFL every day. I'm actually on disability through the NFL pains part of my life. I have to live in active lifestyle, or I'll hurt you know, I have to continue to run and lift and stretch or a my body will hurt knees. Neck back. Shoulders hands. I mean, you you can really go through it and find nowhere that there's not something going on. And that's true of the vast majority of retired players nearly two thousand of whom are currently trying to sue the NFL for not warning them about the possible long-term consequences of taking so many painkillers to the medications the treatments to all the things that we have at our disposal now today lead to problems in the future. Of course, they do right? Because if you were one in done if you had a a knee injury, if you had one used to get one spine surgery you out of the NFL ill. Now, someone's got three let alone NIA ankle, elbow shoulder this that and the other thing absolutely the cause promise. But again, it's all about informed consent. You need to talk to your patient in need to talk to the player here the risks and benefits of being able to play here. The risk benefit football is not a safe sport. It's. It's not. But as long as people understand the risks. They're adults. They can make throwing decisions in two thousand sixteen Eugene Monroe did make a decision he was only twenty nine, but he was starting to worry about all the trauma hit already inflicted on his body. He decided to retire. Even though he says he knew he was still strong in good enough to keep playing just I felt that it was time to to make decisions and not continue to destroy my body and my head and move on. We've seen examples over the past couple years of players retiring early that we never would have. I guarantee you ten years ago they would not walked away from the game. And it's because I think the NFL has done a good job of educating on the potential side effects of chronic traumatic encephalopathy concussions and everything else. But it's still rare for players to walk away before they have to for a lot of these guys. Like, Brandon, Lloyd, it still feels worth it. It's worth it is worth it. You know, it's worth it and high school to get an opportunity to get a full rat scholarship to the college of my choice. It's worth it to be playing at the college much Heus get an education, the exact education that I wanted to get an opportunity to plan NFL and make a million dollars, and is worth it planning NFL making a million dollars to make ten more. And it's worth it. If make even more, right? It's worth it. It's so worth it. That's why people do it even with all that we know about the long term consequences of playing the sport on the body and on the brain. But with fewer young people taking up the game will future generations of players feel the same way. Good evening and moved them to the. What is it like to be you know, some of dream about as a kid? Like. She's a big intern moun- that's how you can sell them in the NFL. From

"As in queens into brand new patriots. They picked them up in free agency of the offseason he played through that groin injury. The same way hundreds of NFL players compete every Sunday with the help of drugs sometimes just high doses of over the counter painkillers like Advil Aleve or Tylenol, but also often with another more powerful drug called tornado tore. It all is basically injectable Motrin and sending Jacksonville anti inflammatory medicine. Here's a great truck that has a lot of pain relieving capabilities of narcotic without any of the addictive or side effects. It has a few, you know, potential for a little bleeding or something like that. But it's it's relatively safe drug Thomas. Gila was a team doctor for the patriots for years, including well, Hernandez was on the team for most of that time. He was the head physician until he left in two thousand fourteen. He was one of the guys you see run out onto the field. When a player goes down to check whether he has to come out of the game or whether he is okay to stay in and behind the training room doors. He was also the guy giving the players drugs like Torrado a lot of players lined up to get toward all before every single game. At the, you know, the proverbial t train the line to receive the toward all injection and the glue you can play games with tarring, ligaments, and fractured and broken bones. With the turtle shot enough that paint function is is shut off than you can still perform it would be the players who are involved in the most contact. It's the offensive lineman defensive lineman next to linebackers following them to full backs volumes running backs, then it's receivers DB's. The guys that are perceiving the most contact in front neat nit. The most. I did where every game. And I remember sometimes I had to do before practice when I was trying to wait till after the season, they have surgery. You know, you you get this deterrent shot, and you can go from feeling miserable. And not knowing how you perform that day to feeling like superman, you know, ready to run through all the tour career sabre and needed at prolong my career, but toward all has also been found a cuss serious, internal bleeding and kidney problems, including kidney failure around two thousand. Eleven advocates ran fell players began to sound alarms over the potential long-term effects of the drug then a group of retired players sued the NFL alleging that toward oh master severity of concussions and other injuries. They got on the field and that they were not informed of its potential dangers. That is something Gill the former patriots Dr disputes. He says every year at training camp. He did talk to the players about the side effects of tore it, all and other drugs. Coach Bela checks request, and he says he told. Him his policy that he would not give preventative tour at all. But that he would give it to players who are injured are in pain. But again, I less explaining the risks and benefits of toward all kidding aside effects liver side effects potential for bleeding. You can only have so much of it. You know, we want you to sign informed consent. It was a very methodical medically appropriate usage have hot to address. Everyone ahead of time. You know, I can't recall anyone telling me about the side effects. Probably because I didn't wanna hear it. Now, the whole purpose of my use of toward always to be planned in the game. Because if I didn't play I didn't get paid. I didn't play I didn't get -tunities to score and fulfil my dreams if I didn't use it. I wouldn't have an opportunity to do any of that. But after that first group players filed the Torah doll lawsuit in two thousand eleven things changed somewhat the practice has changed a bit. I know that they try to limit to some degree how frequently they used those drugs. But I do know they're still in use still very much in use as of two thousand fourteen more than half of the players on NFL rosters were getting toward all before games. According to a survey of twenty seven teams, and it's not just toward all that's being doled out the most common job, they'll give you like in the training room. If you spring ankle or something they'll just give prescription for Viking it, you know, I've been working on a book and looking up some things for this book, I found that I was prescribed nine different prescriptions. In one month alone for Viking that's nine prescriptions in one month. That's pretty crazy. Ryan O'Callaghan was drafted by the patriots in two thousand six. As an offensive tackle by then had already played with a broken, wrist and had four shoulder surgeries. I got drafted having four surgeries already. And then once I got to the NFL I injured that same left shoulder. Two more times, you know. So I was I was very familiar with taking painkillers and spending a lot of time in the training room. You know, I figured out alternative ways try to help. But they're always very quick to you know, he'll help take the pain away, especially if you ask for him and by ask for them. He means opioids that's actually something. We heard Aaron Hernandez talk a lot about with his former NFL friends painkillers like in this call from two thousand fourteen with his friend, Mike pouncey who was just getting over leg surgery. The. At work. What I get home. I say like five six. Bet you ain't supposed to drink on on. My what you mean, that's bad. You mean, you don't Hernandez was injured or hurt for a lot of his time with the patriots. He had hip surgery shoulder surgery in a bad ankle sprain. He missed ten games in three years because of his injuries and required more medical attention than most of his teammates. They're gonna hang out there. We're headed. Heinous are the more further meteors head all the way at my knees. They can't be taking these. Hernandez, Brandon spikes also talked about just how easy it was to get opioids in the NFL her plankton is this shit. You've got to get a bike -ment spent play too. Yeah. Brandon Lloyd who played with Hernandez on the patriots in two thousand twelve remembers that to how team doctors would pass out pills on the plane. Oh, yeah. Yeah. The medical staff would this walk through the aisles and say how you fill in. How you filming? How you feeling you need anything you need anything? And and guys would just say, yes, it used to be the I guess you had a little bins at his Advil Aleve and Tylenol, but it also used to be that the sports medicine staff athletic training, staff had a isky a suitcase or a kit that was kept on site that had everything from narcotics antibiotics anti inflammatory medicine. Dr Gill says the team did travel drugs during many of his years with the patriots. But he said, it was always by the book, and we had a very careful way. And this was just uniform across the league DA proof. But it was literally carried your own pharmacy with you everywhere, you went and you carry with you that with you that to the doctor or the trainer had to carry it on the plane, and it was completely up. Tar discretion. You know who needed what and got what? And we'd have a little piece of paper. And yeah, you'd sign up who got what? And that was it was giving a few different ways that when I first got to the NFL one of the system trainers would go around the locker room the David early game in in hand post to each active player, you guys who's going to be dressed ready to go. So the day before the game before the competition. You were given your opioids in times where you know, someone might not like taking them or whatever the case may have been they were deaf. Bartered on our flights to from our way gangs. Everyone knew who was injured, and, you know, not everything in the locker room was private, and you know, I was gonna say names or anything. But yeah, there was definitely times where you'd help each other out that looseness with opioids the passing them out on the plane or in the locker room changed not long after that toward a lawsuit was filed federal agents began investigating allegations in the lawsuit and NFL doctors reacted the DA started getting much stricter and saying you can no longer be your own pharmacy and dispense. And that's when we went from dispensing our own medication to literally writing prescriptions for any kind of controlled substance. We didn't keep any control substances. Really onsite anymore. If player had a problem, we've called it into the pharmacy. Write a prescription. They'd have to get it like any other patient would because of all the surgery Ryan O'Callaghan had during his football career both in college. And in the NFL he was on and off opioids allot. He says it was never really. A problem until he had yet another surgery on his shoulder during his last season with the chiefs. And I came back out to Kansas City after got rated on. And they had prescribed me delighted, and I'd never had lauded before delayed is just a very very strong medicine, and I had some other things going on in my life, which the painkillers helped to cover up for but that led to an addiction and it got way out of hand for quite a while. I was spending a lot of money in looking around trying to get painkillers from different people. And I haven't went to outside Dr. You know, if you tell someone you're an NFL player, and you're in pain, you know, here's a report from my last surgery, you tell them, oh, I can't tell the team exactly how much pain them. You know, you you can easily nippy late it doctor to give you what you want. And that's what I did given the amount of paint. He was in and given the NFL's rules. He says opioids felt like his only option they wouldn't let you smoke marijuana or anything like that. So, but they'll let you take all the painkillers you want. So you know, I had to do it had to do. Hiring

From the Boston Globe in one I'm Bob holder. And this is a bonus episode of gladiator an investigative series about Aaron Hernandez and football Inc. In our six part series. We brought you the story of a deeply troubled young man in the ugly underside of the game that made him a star since the series was released. We've been digging deeper into other areas of his story, including things he shared with friends from the NFL in the months after his arrest how negative prepaid collect. Call from Hernandez talked to his old teammates from college in the NFL almost every day. And we were struck by what they talked about. Call after call is filled with descriptions of injuries and the drugs they took. So they could keep playing with broken ribs. Sprained ankles torn shoulders like this call with his friend Brandon spikes who played for both the patriots and the bills. Even when you fuck medium saying right but once season. Everybody got going on. Everybody has something going on with talked before about the long term consequences of head injuries in CT. But it's not just head injuries in his short career, Aaron Hernandez learned what pro bowlers do. In fact, ask almost any NFL player any retired player coach or team doctor, and they'll tell you the same thing in football at that level almost everyone is in pain almost all the time. Aaron Hernandez was dead by the age of twenty seven over the course of his life. He grappled with some of the long term physical effects of his time in the game. But other former players we spoke to live for much longer after they retired. It's so many present that it's it's a factor. You can't consider you just know that you'll deal with it. And so everyone else Eugene Monroe played seven seasons in the NFL for the Jaguars. And later for the ravens in terms of injury and recovery you're in constant pain state, because you you really don't have an opportunity to ever recover for many injuries that happen while you play football. And for a lot of these guys de leads to chronic health issues later on in two thousand thirteen the Washington Post found that nearly ninety percent of retired NFL players were in pain on a daily basis and that they attributed that paint a football. And also this retired NFL players four times. More likely to abuse opioids than the general population. It's the culture. Are you heard? Are you injured the famous question if you hurt then you can play through if you injured you have to come out Brandon Lloyd played eleven seasons in the NFL as a star receiver. He says that's just how it is in college football. And in the NFL, you get hurt and you keep playing if you possibly can the problem is if I come out, then someone else takes spot, and then I may not get that spot bag what if that player has a few games? What if that player has a report with the quarterback, you know, these are the questions that will go through my mind when it came down to be an injured. And so we have to play. There's also outside pressure to get back in the game. Some of it from coaches like Bill Belichick Lloyd played in the patriots for one season under Bella check. And my case I had a severe growing strain going into maybe the second game of the two thousand twelve season in New England. We were going into Baltimore. And I received a lecture from one of the position coaches that said, you know, you're new here and Bill really admires players who played through pain, and if you can get out in the game, and at least be a decoy that will go a long way for us. And so I- warmed up before the game. It was very uncomfortable. And I play. As
