"Jussie Smollett was the victim of a vicious racist and homophobic attacks his attackers hurled racial and homophobic slurs for racism she would steroids they are looking for two suspects who were apparently wearing make America great again hat the offenders uttered this is not a country this is stomach turning mind boggling information hello this is a horrible story yeah and unacceptable this is America and twenty ninety eight I love that this is American twenty nineteen one of the more frustrating things in life and I think I should say maybe not life but in the media is the the initial story the accused of the the main story it's the most coverage the just the small let the first when he comes out with the news with that this with that huge huge story when it comes out that he was lying no grand to just a smaller one there was a lot of coverage on that but the apology the is never as big we talked about the story about the candidate who is running in the seventy six the simply district was accused of sexually harassing that woman and he came out to not be true at all but the night the allegations came out the ten days prior and then was ten days subsequently after the cops said no no nothing happened but the night that the accusations came out it was front page story leading news Republican use simply candidate you know growing allegedly gropes agree woman or whatever you she alleged and then ten days later it's only about the weather wasn't true and it's like page six of the nuns paper wait you should go up to tell every single person you told that I got your letter we did that to tell every single person that wasn't true that Sir we got that they had like totally wrong get all the facts wrong and that is really what should we do what do you mean well into the reduction on Z. nineties Tuesday there from bottom right corner point five immediately yes Sir or do you know if you get to it sometime this week you don't have to do it you know whatever it's like why that is a very frustrating thing into the jussie Smollett of in that story obviously is just absurd in its own right but you know the same thing now it's just kind of pushed pushed aside into okay whenever whatever I was sure the code story coming up next but we shared earlier this week in fact about the violence going on in Chicago hello even though we are not hearing as much about it doesn't mean that it's not happening they're still shootings and Eric you actually out of forty someone called in and and called me out rightfully so I didn't share the exact same story so last week I sure earlier this week I should say I should the story about how there was just this horrific thing there was a twelve people got shot at a party in Chicago twelve people on that's an absurd amount that's it the a and barely any nukes coverage on it and I got shot and a celebration of life for someone who also had got shot you know what I'm saying so the guys party they were honoring Amer celebrating his life he had gotten shot the reason he had gotten shot was he was carjacking someone else thank the guy was carjacked again I'm not laughing is it doesn't mean it is you have to get killed by the the guy was carjacking he got shot and killed at the party for the guy that got shot and killed twelve people got shot I mean this is the kind of lunacy that's going on in Chicago we talked about it into gangs retaliating it's their game cheats their gang should start getting into retaliating it's a never ending cycle never ending cycle the thing is Chicago isn't the only city Baltimore could wrap up twenty nineteen with the highest per capita homicide rate on record as killing of adults and minors alike for drugs retribution money or no clear reason continue add up and city officials appear unable to stop the violence police recorded three hundred and thirty eight homicides as of Tuesday following the release a week of relentless gunfire that saw eight people shot the three of them fatally in one day nine others one of them fatally yeah another day to think about that you got nine people shot one day you've got eight people start on another day so twenty eighteen it was three hundred nine people were killed for shy of the three hundred forty two killings tallied in two thousand seventeen of two thousand fifteen this is sad this is a city that doesn't have leadership it's endlessly under eight they'll had no leadership in Baltimore for a long time failed politicians upon failed politicians mayors come in and say they're going to clean it up and more people get shot and more people get killed it's the same failed policies no one even says Hey maybe we should try something differently it's just to come in all we're going to clean it up this time and then it's the same thing and it's the same thing there are over six hundred thousand residents in Baltimore to the homicide rate is about to reach fifty seven per one hundred thousand residents have been killed by gunfire which includes the rate of nineteen ninety three with the city had a record of three hundred fifty three killings but was awesome also much more populous New York City has eight million residents and is at three hundred and six homicides New York City which isn't likely the safety capital of the world so I you know I mean it's not it's not the worst place the world leader but it's not like New York City I don't think safety New York City three hundred and six homicides your Baltimore's had three hundred and thirty eight and I'm sure accounting for six days left in the in the year or whatever I'm sure it'll continue to go up and that's that's horrific this horrific and it's the same failed leadership is the same thing in Chicago it's the same thing in Baltimore and it's not getting better any time soon usually it's in the summer when it's warm and people around still shootings people getting killed it's a and nobody nobody even brings it up nobody says Hey what about the three hundred people that have been shot and killed this year no will more will move on one eight hundred seven sixty five three sixty two okay we'll come back we'll talk about what's going on on this Florida professor down these these college professors all tell you I also play some more sound I got.
