"Third caller, then and their hope you had a great weekend. Our colleague Amy marks cores ran a marathon in Indianapolis. And what was your time? It was a tough one Charlie was three zero zero zero seven so three hours and seven seconds. And it was a good lesson in how we humans like to be greedy. Because I wasn't sure what to expect going into the race. And I was thinking of I was my goal was to run slower like three zero five zero seven blew that one totally destroyed that strategy. So I have so much to be grateful for because I ended up renting a three hour marathon, tremendous those seven seconds mayonnaise. They're tantalizing because that too is so much prettier than the three. But last year, I did I did snag the two. So it's okay. It wasn't like a life goal. What what what's your personal best to fifty nine fifty five? Oh my gosh. You came right around. I was twelve seconds slow, and it was such a treat because I wasn't expecting it. I almost didn't go. I was feeling really tired. My training was bad. So that's how you just you never know with running. I almost didn't go I went because I was sharing a hotel room with a friend. And that's a big. Actor factor financially. Sure double her price if you don't show up by the way hotels to go up in price during marathon weekends. Do they not do unless you book early enough that you can get the runners discount did? So the year before I did not and it was very expensive. Obviously, what is a hotel room in Indianapolis fell out. I can tell you. So the high we stayed at the Hyatt Regency which was about one hundred feet from the start line, and it was one hundred and ninety six dollars with the runners race discount. But the year before I did not book with the runners race discount and was three hundred ninety six dollars ninety six for downtown indie book early enough. Yeah. And that is downtown. On capitol. You can see the capitol building. Okay. This is not sports open line. But. But that's the the winner of the New York marathon, the women's winner is kind of like now the LeBron James of running Kettani mary-anne, she she's the Queen of the New York marathon, not quite Greta graduates. She's not include has nine victories who had victories. I she was three minutes and thirty seconds more than a half a mile. I think ahead of the woman who second place. Yes. So that's apparently she took off after the sixteenth mile. And it was all over at that point, which is so impressive. Because that's a lot of work to do to run by yourself. And to also lead the group, you're doing all the work. So she she ran a great race a career race. And she was what about two twenty three something like that. Yeah. To twenty two twenty two who's counting. Well, anyway, folks, our colleague here is in tremendous shape. A three hour marathon is just tremendous performance. So congratulations for that. I did nothing nearly as so I'm kind of I'm kind of at a loss to beat that. But there were a couple of things that happened over the weekend that I thought were pretty extraordinary one. We talked last week about the loss of Ralph Harper who was the. Police officer who was shot at about seven thirty in the morning and south Saint Louis, and he was retired. And she's a terrible thing. We had Jeff Rhoda from the police union on. I didn't know that. This was a thing that the New York Yankees send flowers, and they did to the funeral home for Ralph Harper every time a police officer is fallen. The New York Yankees baseball team sends flowers did you know that I didn't either until I saw a tweet from jasmine Huda of FOX two and then actually the kmox covered. This isn't that? Nice. Gesture that is and it's it's crazy that in this world of instant publication, instant global publication it I didn't know about it. Yeah. Would take. I mean, what what a tremendous thing also something nice. My son attends the university of Virginia. So maybe I was a little more hip to this than than most people, but they played Pittsburgh over the weekend. And Pittsburgh, of course, is where we had that senseless tragedy at the tree of life synagogue last weekend. So throughout the UVA campus, they put up signs we stand with Pittsburgh, including around the stadium and then walking in everyone received like a little paper card, and it said, we stand with Pittsburgh now mind, you UVA's football team was until Saturday or Friday night in the top twenty five for the first time in fifty years or something like that. So this was a big game for the Cavaliers? But nonetheless, you know, they were kind of extending this magnanimity in the star full-time, and I thought that was pretty classy. Of course, Pittsburgh beat them fair very easily. And so anyway. Too bad UVA's no longer in the top twenty five, but we do get a lot of bad news. Every once in a while. I thought that was a very nice gesture. Absolutely. We need news of unity and of the community coming together because there are a lot of good people in this country. And then sometimes it's easy to forget it, so Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh with Josh Holly tonight in Cape Girardeau. I guess, and I think the president is going to be there to the president's taking he's taking third billing behind Hannity and Limbaugh, Lisa. Those are the headlines. So I don't think I've seen this have. I Rush Limbaugh coming back to Cape Girardeau, kicked Toronto where he was born and raised as a matter of fact, I was I was at the funeral for his aunt about a year ago. The lovely and Limbaugh and her son Steve Limbaugh junior said that an was able to get a teenage rush to deliver meals on wheels in Cape Girardeau back in the day. Little known story. I'm not sure he wants out there nonetheless. Apparently he did. And I'm wondering if you're Josh Holly. Obviously, you're pulling out all stops. You got the president. There. You've got Hannity and Limbaugh. It's not exactly clear what their roles are going to be. But this is the race that the country's looking at right here in Missouri. Clay. Claire mccaskill up against Josh Holly. And I don't think anyone tells you they know where it's going. I think they're crazy. And do you think that this specific current political climate where you have lifelong Democrats voting Republican or lifelong Republicans voting democrat has added to just how unpredictable this race is going to be? Yeah, it's it's it's completely unpredictable. Yeah. And what's funny to me is that nobody's talking about the economy. It's all immigration or healthcare. You listen to the candidates is obviously the Democrats don't wanna talk about the economy because in the last two years they've been incredible. The numbers came out on Friday ninety seventh straight month of job increases. That's a record unemployment rate is three point seven percent. The lowest in forty nine years, they add on average two hundred ten thousand jobs every month. They're two hundred and fifty thousand edit on Friday seven hundred eleven thousand Americans joined the labor force last month. Wages are up three point one percent from a year ago. The biggest increase in nine years manufacturing jobs are up and the unemployment rates for African Americans Hispanics, the lower educated, a disabled, those unemployment weights all went down, and in fact, wages are up a dollar an hour on average from a year ago. So with all of that why isn't that? The only thing Republicans are talking about. Instead, we're talking about this caravan an immigration coming from Mexico. I that's a real head scratcher. I don't get that. I think it comes down to growth is not enough. I really don't think growth drives people to the polls. I mean you look at. Yes. The economy is going bad. It's the only thing anyone ever talks about it's the driving narrative, but go back a long time ago to LBJ and the great society will he was ousted when the economy was really really strong. Yeah. The Republican revolution of nineteen ninety four. When the economy was strong. I think Trump understands that growth won't drive people to the polls. It's a prerequisite for success, but it doesn't engender action. And so his social platform has been excuse me. His political platform has been very socially conservative the second amendment conservative. Judges. Is border control crime prevention. I think he is running on that. I guess so, but let's say your typical Jack or Jill six pack your here in Saint Louis is the border really more important to you than the fact that we have the lowest unemployment rate since nineteen sixty nine that's all we talked about the past fifty years. It's the economy stupid. So then we get the economy made in heaven, and it's like it's a secondary four three six seven nine hundred eight hundred nine to five eleven twenty Amy Mark scores. Charlie Brennan, we'll take some of your phone calls. Lots of talk about tomorrow before this huge midterm elections. The likes of which we haven't seen before the.

"Ex. Charlie Brown, the voice of Saint Louis. Now, we do have lots of phone calls on this Tuesday morning. And I'm sorry for the grim subject. I wish it was a little more uplifting. But it's something we have to deal with crime in Saint Louis yesterday. Ralph Harper sixty seven years old, retired fatally wounded retired from the police officer from the police force fatally wounded in a shootout. In an in an attempted carjacking that was one of four homicides before four thirty pm over the weekend, Washington park AG's Hillary police officer Ricardo Davis fell to his death off the poplar street bridge during a foot chase. And we know I mean throughout the area there throughout the city, especially but throughout the area, we have too many homicides. Jeff Rhoda is with us today. He's joining us as the business manager for the Saint Louis police officers association, which is the union business manager, you're kind of like what executive director or something like that. Yeah. I run the day-to-day operations in in enforcing union contract, as you know, the circuit attorney, Kim Gardner has a list of twenty eight officers, which is secret that she will not prosecute cases. If the officers responded to certain crimes, what if in this case, let's say with Ralph Harper one of the responding officers is on that list. Well, and another another murderer go free. I mean that cop killer wouldn't be prosecuted according to Kim's protocols, and it would be just another case of of Justice not being done since she decided to create this stupid ill-conceived list. She has had quite a few dropped cases in the last two years. Yes, she's a prosecutorial butter fingers. Have you taken a look at the numbers at all? Yeah. So in in two thousand seventeen we've got about two hundred murders in Saint Louis. We'd we'd led the nation. She only charged fifty eight people in those crimes only nine of them went to prison, and the average sentence was was less than ten years. I mean, that's nothing for a murder for homicide average sentence less than ten year. Yeah. Ingestion county put film. Felons in Joe longer than that. Okay. To the phones we go James you're on chemo ex. You're speaking right to my point how the mayor in kindergarten maintained. Her employment is baffling to me. This city is going down the tubes. And we allow our leaders to do nothing the police officers and got the handcuffs on instead of the criminals. It is a disgrace a disgrace. And nothing's done. Charlie. You sit there every morning. Surprised by Tim Gardner's record? Are you kidding me? It's a disgrace. Heavy great. Thanks a lot James. Well, the big issue is a the loss of life tragic and also the future of the city who wants to do business here. Visit here live here. I mean, it's an issue. That's a really good point. Troy, I wish that the business community. You know, they got look at this winter there's millions and millions of dollars in investment in this downtown that's in peril right now because nobody wants to to work and and live and recreate downtown. Because it's becoming so dangerous under under the watch of our current elected officials, and I wish business community would step up user influence to demand action. Hello and good morning. Bob. You're on camel ex Charlie. I remember when the stock liberty came out, our lustrous mayor immediately said my God that verdict just disgusting. Somebody asked her if she read the verdict. And of course, she didn't we have these people are they stole my thunder. We have these people in charge are just helpless and ludicrous and racist against their their reverse racist. Kim Gardner is the most racist person in Saint Louis, but we just keep on with this rhetoric. And then we can't do anything. We can't stop and frisk. We can't do this. We can't do that more people get killed. And then they're they're on the radio with the same old rhetoric. Oh, what are we gonna do? Well. Accurate gonna do. We can disagree with MS gardeners policies. But I don't think it's fair to call her racist. Jeff. Well, here I'll say this Charlie the Twenty-eight officers now twenty nine she had another officer to that list. She won't tell us whether on that list. Maybe it is inspired by race until she tells us. It gives us the explanation that these caps and the citizens are owed anything's a possibility. So I think she needs to defend herself. And explain herself a little review here at the circuit attorney has put twenty eight you say twenty nine officers on secret list, and she has said that she will not prosecute cases that are touched by these officers. It's raising a lot of questions among even staunch Democrats who say, hey, we've got the civilian review board. We've got internal affairs. We've got the Brady rules at the federal level with a specific protocol when it comes to disciplining and reviewing officers. She's ignoring those three methods. The most curious to me is the civilian review board because on this program for thirty years. Everyone said we need to see our be we need a C R be. Okay. They finally got a civilian review board. Now, they've got it. They're not using it. Yeah. Well, I mean, it's another feckless agency in city government and. Kim gardner. Didn't get her way. So to now, she's she'd liked the prosecute these cows. But there's no crime committed. There's no evidence against them. So instead she's trying to ruin career, and and and the people of Saint Louis now have to play now I to let when they call and they're the victim of a crime. They may get an officer on the list, they may not. But they they don't get Justice. If they happen again author on that list. Hey, kevin. Thanks for joining us here on camera wax, the morning guys. Yeah. The the cops are definitely behind the eight ball. I don't know why any of them even wanna be cops anymore. There's nothing to offer in Saint Louis as far as pay and they're darned, if they do darned, if they don't and this revolving door system, we're on we I agree with Trump. We have got to bring back capital punishment, and Missouri still has it, but they rarely use it. And like, you just said a left all these what ten years for murder. People do worse than that for minor infraction. So it's it's it's crazy. We've gotta fix the system. And then maybe guys all apply to be a police officer. It's no wonder the population has diminished in Saint Louis area. Truth be told you can get twenty years for child porn on your computer. Correct. Right. And and none of these murders got life sentences. The most any of them got was twenty five years. And I mean, that's just crazy. These are murderers. There's a a mom out there who's who's lost her son or daughter at the hands of these vicious criminals, and they're getting a slap on the wrist from this prosecutor, I think we have to let you go. Unfortunately, the unforgiving clock Jefford has said. Time is up. But with this goodbye, we thank you very much for joining us. And perhaps we can discuss these issues against some time. They're not going away. Unfortunately, Charlie Brennan on the voice of Saint Louis. Jeff rhythm the business manager for the Saint Louis police officers association with us on the voice of Saint Louis.

"Winning historian, Doris. Kearns Goodwin is gonna join us once again, former fought bond university, Charlie Venancio book of the month club, author and this time she's going to take a look at ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Lyndon Baines Johnson and talked about leadership and some of the some of the stories that I think you'll find nothing short of fascinating. Also this morning. We're going to talk about raising the gasoline tax. At least that's the proposal on the ballot in front of Missouri voters, Missouri. Lieutenant governor Mike keyhole is gonna join us in studio. Caroline Feltner from the jury hotels will talk about how her company is expanding still more hotels and more locations, and it's all based here in Saint Louis, and it is the most award winning hotel chain in the United States today. We've got the Y line you can get in on that at four four four three thousand also this morning. Former house majority leader Richard Gephardt is going to be with us remembering the late great union leader. Bob Kelly who passed away last weekend and. We're gonna share some thoughts about that. When Dick Gephardt returns to the voice of Saint Louis. It's been some time and our next guest. Also, a friend of Bob Kelly who headed up the labor union here in Saint Louis for a long time. Jeff wrote a business manager for the Saint Louis police officers association is with us in the studio. And this we've got a lot of things to talk about today. But you were a colleague Bob Kelly's, and he he was a giant labor circles. Yeah. That's that's there's no way to underestimate his impact he was an icon in our organized labor community here in Saint Louis. I think twenty nine years heading up the labor council and even in his retirement. He was still a force to be reckoned with and very influential in his retirement, he became I think the president of the commercial food workers some retirement to the hobby. Right. Exactly. So we'll get into that a little bit later we invited you to join us today because we've lost a couple of law enforcement officer. On the streets of Saint Louis in the past couple of days this past weekend when Washington park auxiliary police officer Ricardo Davis died after falling off the poplar street bridge during a foot chase. And then yesterday Ralph Harper sixty seven years old retired fatally wounded in what we think was a robbery what's going on here. Yeah. It sounds like a carjacking gone bad from what I've heard Choi. But you know, yesterday, I was sad today. I'm mad. I'm wondering when the elected leaders is so called elected leaders here in Saint Louis are gonna step up and help law enforcement do something about the problem. We have with with violence, and and sort of unabated crime here in Saint Louis. Well, we've been discussing this and in fact about a week or so at Greg's which is a bar excuse me. It's a bar and grill north Broadway. They've had a lot of incidents. They found shell. L casings on the ground. They've got cruising with firearms kind of a new dynamic in Saint Louis and some of the trucks are being robbed while they're unloading batteries. You're being stolen out of trucks. There's a lot of drag racing. The mayor said that the police officers have a difficult time enforcing gun laws because well what gun laws are there right now? We've got permit. Louis Carey, you can it's legal for you as a state resident to carry concealed weapons in public without a permit and without a background check. So what can a police officer do? Well, that's a cop out on the part of the mayor's the the question should be what gun laws are there should be. What police officers are there were a hundred and thirty plus officer down heart and thirty eight down as of yesterday that number keeps getting bigger the mayor has direct control over that. You'd have direct control over the gun laws. But she sure could put some more police officers on the street. Well, there's that we passed a tax increase to increase the number of police officers. But it's the pay in Saint Louis city is still not what it is in a county. Right. Yeah. Remember that tax increase got our cops a six thousand dollar raise at the same time. Saint Louis county officers getting about fifteen thousand dollar raise only a third of that tax increase which overwhelmingly passed with the support of law enforcement and community. Only third of that went to two police salaries rest went to pet projects and other things that don't help us in the battle on crime. Are you talking about the most recent sales tax police officers? Yeah, it's not gonna please sell only a third of it is and. You know, I I think that's wrong. I've said it was wrong from the get-go, but we're not going to be able to retain and recruit well trained experienced police officers till the mayor and other elected officials put their money where their mouth is and until the circuit attorney's office decides that they want to put criminals in jail instead of messing with police officers. Well, now, that's another issue. Let's get into that in just a moment. But the mayor did relax the residency requirement. Chef for hiring fifty new officers right now the words you won't have to live in the city to serve on the Saint Louis metropolitan police force. It's a little more complicated than that, Charlie. She did that with talking to the union. She did it without talking to the police department and into the way she's doing it is not going to help. You know, we we want residency lifted for all officers and permanently not with a temporary waiver. So that we can bring more officers. Into the city, and and make it a more attractive place to work. Jeff humor me for just a minute. I want to get into some of the recent gun laws in the state, and you tell me have they or have they not increased crime until two thousand seven there was a requirement in the state that all handgun buyers. Get a gun permit by undergoing a background check in person at the sheriff's office. We did away with that didn't that increased crime in our area. It sure made the job harder for my cops. You know, the the Senator pass that was from Lewis county. And I I told him there's a difference between these gun laws and Lewis county in Saint Louis county and the city couldn't this be the key to our crime. No, I mean, we we can't enforce gun laws. We don't have any cops. I mean, it would be nice if we had some some gun laws that made it a little easier to get these these weapons out of out of the hands of dangerous criminals. But what can you do? I mean, you're a police officer. You can't stop and frisk. Right. So you and you see a. Gun in a car. You can't search it because it's legal to carry a firearm in a vehicle without a permit now. Yeah. That was what last year right that they wouldn't affect I guess two years ago and. It does make the job harder. But the thing that makes it the hardest is understaffed we are. And it makes it really dangerous when he got these guns that are on the street in greater numbers and officers have to interact with with criminals with without backup. But let's say you see a young man with a firearm. There might have been a time when the police officers say can I see your permit. But now that it's legal in the state to carry concealed weapons in public without a permit, a criminal background, check or firearms training. What can a police officer? Do let's say you had twice the number of police officers. What could they do? Well, we take a lot of guns for proof of ownership. Guns ended up being stolen and are reported a lot a lot a lot of times. You know, a lot of these kids are already convicted felons. We you know, in that case, you can lock them up. And and know the courts deferral courts will do something with them. But I mean, but but won't you be accused of profiling? Well, I mean, we get accused of profiling as soon as we get in a car every morning. I mean, that's just part of the environment. We're in. But you know, the the question is why don't you have some documents to jump straight Yonne has gone. And that's why we take a lot of them for proof of prove ownership. But you know, I'm not denying for second choice. That guns are a major problem. And that we need to get guns out of the hands of people that aren't have them. But again, I just go back to the fact that that's a monumental task. When you're so critically understaffed. And so you think the paramount concern is. Increasing the number of police officers currently we have twelve hundred. Yeah, we were a hundred and thirty eight down. So we're at about eleven ninety at one point we were at eighteen hundred. Yeah. Yeah. And the department just keeps shrinking and crime keeps growing we're number one in the country and homicides. Do you mentioned some phone calls now? I'd love to Jeff Rhoda is with us today. Ladies and gentlemen. He's the business manager for the Saint Louis police officers association and yesterday a retired officer Ralph Harper sixty seven fatally wounded in a shootout looked like it was a carjacking this past weekend. Ricardo Davis died. He was on a foot chase on the poplar street bridge. And these are just you know, two examples we had I think four homicides yesterday before four PM something like that from what I understand in the city. Yeah. Okay. Four three six seven nine hundred eight hundred nine to five eleven twenty folks. Jeff rotas says we need to increase the number of officers in the Saint Louis, metropolitan police department rank and file I'm suggesting let's look at some of these gun laws, and even if you are a responsible gun owner, don't you have to admit, it would be a good idea to kind of rigs. Examined the gun laws in the state of Missouri. Which were recently loosened three one four four three six seven nine hundred eight hundred nine to five eleven twenty. We'll take your phone calls in just a moment on the voice of Saint Louis k Molex. I However, I want to tell you about a great organization big B I E G plumbing who have helped Brennan's quite a bit. In fact on two occasions. The second one was kind of humorous in the sense that we had a, you know, a toilet that wasn't really operating all that. Well, and I think we had at least we I know we had at least two other plumbing firms come to the house and fiddled and diddled without much success then big showed up and with one. Visit they replaced the handle and guess what? We haven't had any problems since. Well, I liked that expertise. I also liked the fact on on another occasion. I honestly thought I was in for a huge repair. And with a lot of expense coming out of my pocket. But as it turns out, it wasn't a big deal at all. And they charged me for a fifteen minutes, sir. Service call and that's I think the hallmark of their nearly sixty year operation their family owned and operated, but they also run their business on honesty, and integrity and speaking of employment,.
