We've had several we've had several officer involved shootings today. We had a a deranged. The person pointed a gun at a police officer. You know, when you have that happens. It's going to end up in a a bad situation. Ten times out of ten times. It's just not the gun play in the state is out of control one thing. I'd like for you guys to do is look at the press conference from Herman hospital last night, the tree foster Vado had and and listen to the words of job them all the who's the president of the police union down there. Yeah. Fantastic speech and laid it out in about one minute. My what's going on in this country with the false narrative against police officers in the violence towards police officers. It's it's very tragic there in Houston. They were serving a search warrant, and you mentioned the president of the Houston police union here is we are sick and tired of having dirtbags trying to take our lives. When all we're trying to do is protect this community and protect our families enough is enough. And you can hear the frustration. The emotion. Yeah. There in his voice Canada. And I know you share the same feeling here locally as well. I do and, you know, thank God every day that we live in a safer community than they do in Houston. An extremely violent city talking. She Veda recently, there's areas of that city that the police officer cannot go by themselves. You have to have multiple police units. Go to certain neighborhoods, and you know, that's a shame and their their robberies and and their gang activity in Houston is off the charts when they made a lot of help. Yeah. Absolutely. It's interesting, and you know, more about this than I do having a police presence. Is important. Just a police officer being seen in a uniform sometimes will deter crime. Well, I think it does all the time. Right. I mean, bad guys don't want to see cops in uniform changes my thinking, but I bring this up because the entertainment district on some evenings can be incredibly dangerous. We had a gay couple that were attacked in the entertainment district just a couple of weeks ago, and what appears to be some sort of hate crime attack. And then you've got the you've got the businesses that are dealing with the, you know, the urination the fornication the defecation of hobos behind their businesses there along Red River, and we're gonna put a fence up for that. Let me ask you this because I never see this. I never see Austin police officers in uniform being the security at the front door of bars and restaurants downtown why is that? No, you don't chief also Vado got rid of that privilege years ago. You know, there are ways you can do it. There are certain departments where you can work at bars. But you're not allowed to go in until you have a backup officer there. But just seeing the armed presence in front of a business will keep a lot of the the junk. Dirtbags out of the businesses. Paid for by the bars day pay the overtime, but that officer being there for four or five hours providing security, it doesn't it doesn't hit the taxpayers. The bar owner pays it. And it's a way for you guys to make a little side money. Definitely be interested in looking about. Again. I know that that will be a challenge for our our our chief Aaron Austin when you work at a bar. No, everyone, you're working around is intoxicated. But just just like I said earlier just having someone at the front door. There's a presence would be a huge help. Well, you you're not gonna it's gonna prevent fights. Good for business. You're not gonna have the teenager try to sneak into buy drinks. Right. I mean, if the officers they're checking ID's, and I think it would help the patriots have an overall just better experience. I would feel more secure more relaxed. Absolutely. I would enjoy the evening. Can we had a story last week where one hundred and ten police officers shorted were really starting to run through our overtime budget with this war on cops with this what the city council that is well proven that it really doesn't care a whole lot about cops. That's for sure. How difficult is it to recruit how do you recruit young people to be police officers? It's very difficult, especially with the environment that you just talked about. But you know, there's a national trend. Near they're on the verge of disaster in Dallas, Dallas two thousand police officers short. And you know, thing we don't we don't, you know, in good economies, which we have right now, we have a very strong economy. We typically don't do well in hiring. We do a lot better than the down markets years ago. Remember two thousand and eight thousand nine we hired a lot of people from Dell and the tech community, which are very high quality, very intelligent people that have made great police officers force. But these days you have all the departments around the state, but are anywhere from one hundred and eight people like we are to two thousand bodies shorts and Dallas when you're fighting over a very small pool of candidates, man. You know, the other issue is, you know, everyone likes to talking you hear the mayor talk about how we're the highest paid police pharma well in certain areas, we are in certain areas. Or not. And you gotta take into consideration the cost of living here which runs off a lot of people in a lot of candidates. It's the most expensive city to be a police officer and deliver here period. But I I would think what Dallas short two thousand that may be some of your biggest competition and trying to hire the best. Because if they if they're short two thousand they may pay a little bit more actively recruiting you got major cities short police officers that starts affects the smaller departments. Dallas did not take care of their tops for years. They did not pay them a professional salary now they're going through negotiations and they're getting ready to get the fifteen to twenty percent pay raise. So finally, Dallas has opened its eyes and they're doing the right thing. But unfortunately for them, that's my hometown. As many many many years get out from that whole, can I appreciate it. Thanks for calling and Kim Cassidy from the police union. I appreciate you Don show. It was a major game changer when Dr Daniel slaughter eliminated my snoring. Hi, good morning.

He's a veteran of this that and the other and he's screaming and yelling about how harassed and they're getting disrespected.

If you dare say anything do anything wear a hat say words that people if you say make America great again, you're going to be fair gained. And it's gonna be immediate. If you've got a big enough footprint, you will be attacked by the media. The legacy media. Everybody will say the same thing about U everybody until they're proven wrong. Then the very quietly retract Hollywood will say big sports will say it academia will say it. It's down the line. It is absolutely are in lockstep. It is very much like any big government socialist or communist takeover of freedoms. And liberties, they want you to shut up you have no freedom or liberty. You don't say what they want you to say. This is really happening in our great country. Let me go to Joe in Florida. Joe what's going on? Joe thanks for the call. You bet. Why don't you tell me about solid dollars? Yeah. I watched the show. Religiously no pun intended. But I'll do it every time. I watch this show. I keep picking about the time. The Democrats allowed that play that thing that become a religion by making it a nonprofit organization nineteen ninety two that was frigging Bill Clinton. And it's a won't be utopian religions if the Democratic Party if they had a utopia will allow to just and they would probably be the state religion what besides the happening nineteen hundred. If it happened in nineteen ninety two George Herbert Walker. Bush Clinton took office in ninety three. Right. It was right after that. They want signed it in. Okay. Yeah. I use the right. The bell the race. When they try to push board, right? What's happening is that Scientology is that fair game concept came straight from Saul Alinsky sold book, you know, Radic rules radicals, and they love it. That's exactly what they want. He'll be one of the state religions along with Islam, and and radical environmentalism Joe does does the comparison. I make mates make sense to you. I mean to me it makes sense. And it's exactly the same thing that happens from the left to anybody in this country. Yeah. That's one of the techniques bent. So when you said that I watch and I'm just thinking about the liberals in this country. Have exactly what they would want that kind of a a relive Thapa religious burp ferocity right now. So yeah. Yeah. I I hear you. And I and I appreciate what you said. It's an open line now. Eight eight nine four one eight eight eight nine four one seven four two seven. It's interesting.
