I think one of the most divisive, repulsive things that I hear the names that if you are conservative and African American Are used to describe you. And you know, how is it that you have Twitter as it is an NBC news that it is. You know, the references go back to Clarence Thomas, Uncle Clarence, or I hope he eats a lot of eggs and bacon and gets heart disease like a lot of other African American men and dies Young Was USA today at the time. I mean, he actually said I get called Uncle Tom and the N word by progressives. He went on to say, um, you know, then then you got M S NBC News. Emma's DNC, You know, trashing Tim Scott. I'm embarrassed for embarrassed For what? That he doesn't agree with you that it's open season. You could say anything and everything that you have you you want, you know, because he said he doesn't believe America is a racist country didn't say there aren't Racists in America Racing. Yes, in America, said that it's not America's not racist. Look at this. The strides that we've made that we talked about starting from a civil war war that was fought to the Voting Rights Act, The Civil Rights Act that by the way, Joe Biden praised the guy that filibustered that nobody ever seems to want to talk about that. And a nation that seeking solutions and success for every man, woman and child And that can happen in this country. If, in fact, we would get serious about law order, safety, security and education that every town in every city in the country were touched a little bit on the issue of natural law that rights come from God. And then a free environment. The talents put in every individual get to come to fruition. And and that is the beauty of America and a system that where we can right wrongs and correct injustices. And we have, but yeah, we have far we've come far and we have far to go. No one's disagree with that with his Kareem here. The problem here is you're making A lot of people are making the mistake of taking an issue that human rights issue This is a humanitarian crisis is going on in America right now with Black America. You're saying on and I'm talking about why black people reacted why we wrecked it, And I wouldn't call Tim Scott, Uncle Tim Tim Scott's a good friend.

Just been a lot of things that about the fact that we're still dealing with some of these things mean that we've dealt with them for a lifetime top. Get the first step back, which is amazing. We did that with trip Tim Scott, but that was the undo Systemic crisis things that with the lack of knowledge, he also did crew intimate. He also did criminal justice reform. He also he also he also funded historically black colleges more than any other president, and I'll tell you the biggest accomplishment. Is he set record low after record low after record low unemployment for every demographic, including African Americans and African American youth unemployment. Donald Trump did that not Obama, not Biden. He did, but he did that in 2000. And 17 between 17 4000 points while we still dealing with these issues that they're not systemic, I'll let Leo wins that leaving. You know what? Yeah, I'll take a crack in it, but I don't think you know this is why Term. Systemic discrimination to systemic racism is a legal term. I know what it means. No disrespect, anyone listening, You need to understand what that term is. But when you have minority run cities like Chicago In Washington, D C and Baltimore, Maryland, where all the people of color are running, and you think there's a cynic, racism respectfully. You don't know what you're talking about, because if people or just like you and I make a decision haven't ever impact, learn what the term means before you use it because I know what Leo with Trump had to deal with federal level. I'm just trying down with it on a federal level, Leo, not on the municipal or local level. He dealt with the criminal justice inequities that was systemic in the federal government, the federal prison system you're talking about. I can't blame it on legal on a federal level full term, respectful, you guys. You need to understand what that word means. That turned me and how it's applied. It's being used, like like Like Like, Like food like it's meaningless. You don't know what it means. No. What time is a subjective time? What is the meaning is a legal term. Systemic discrimination is a legal term. Okay. Break it down there. Don't no, No, no, no, no. I'm not gonna even try to get down to the car. I don't know, but I'm asking you got it mean it means we know what the word systemic means. We know what the word racism. Maybe it's a little racism. Sorry I met him in the system. No, that's wall. Okay, well, what does that make more? No, you don't. No, no, no. What we're saying is that the systems that are Racists in America and I could tell you once Once you know what that term is, You understand why I refer to it we more time, Leo. That's like me. Unless you know what it's geological time years. I can't explain salvation to you unless, but you wouldn't know what a theological term stop. The reality is about. You can't do that man.

"Thanks Stacy for being on the show. We appreciate your time my pleasure anytime guys take care. We'll rob that was an interesting interview but since you and I are really both from this area around Lake Lanier you, you're not both know that we really just barely hit the tip of the iceberg here. There's so much to do but what were your personal takeaways from? Well, you know there is there's literally so much to do on the lake I know we didn't really talk about the fact you can rent a houseboat one of my family memories I rented a house boat and I actually propose to my wife in the middle of Lake Lanier on that houseboat so That's cool. We need all. It was pretty funny because I tried to make it a surprise. I'd come up with this elaborate story that I can't still can't believe my wife believe but I wasn't supposed to be on the boat. They were She was going to take it out with my inlaws in my parents to see if maybe we want to have the rehearsal dinner on I, don't know it was. Crazy story but then. Ruthie. I guess five at the time. She was with Tracy and they got on the boat and Ruthie saw me I was trying to get out of the way. She saw me at the end of the boat and took off. And Yeah. So Tracy then new I was on and so then I had to quit cover Oh, I got off early and was able to make it and We still protected the surprise but that was that was pretty cool. But yeah, there's there's a ton of things to do on the lake and. I think Margarita Ville taking over Lakeland rounds is only up the ante as far as the quality of things you can do I know that we've done the Christmas thing like we talked about at Lake Lanier islands. That's always that's always fun to do and again Margarita those just kind of up the ante.

But we have actually some some pretty large sailboats one of. Our sailing charter companies. A boat that was in the America's Cup that they all the yeah. They sell it regularly on Lake Lanier. So It's kind of interesting that sailing culture here is pretty big. I'd also recommend Lake Lanier Olympic Park if you're not familiar is one of the last remaining venues from the nineteen, ninety, six games that still actively and use, and they have concerts, they have international sporting competitions going on and they have a recurring series. That's a food truck. Friday. That starts kind of March April if the weather's permitting and runs through October. And they have all the food truck five music and they're even right now in the age of Covid. They're still able to do it because it's outdoors on their big plaza area so they have Preserved tables, you can go to their website or call the park and reserve your own family table So you can get your food and have a private table to sit at and everything's all spaced out and all that. So it's a very good and safe for everybody to enjoy that event and they have probably the best sunset on the lake is at Olympic? Park? So yeah that's a good spot. Out of the Olympic Park I got to work there in ninety six. I got to work there and did, yeah yeah, I was.

So we're very excited now it remains to be seen at what level or if Margarita Ville will. Be Part of that venture or not but as right now they're not. But who knows you know by the time they get things shovels in the dirt that that could possibly change but right now that peace is still on the inside of the House will that is interesting because Margarita Ville does operate hotels. That's why I thought it would be a natural. Yeah they do they do and certainly there's been a lot of interest in I think from the Brand Maine all the way up to the top levels of the brand they're very keen on this property because. What they what they found in other markets is they have either the audience and no land. Or, the land and no audience, and so Lanier islands presents this perfect storm of. Develop property within a reasonable distance to a very large MSA of one of their most. Popular markets in the country for the brand. So it's the perfect of things, but you know some. Things get in the way sometimes as we know with. The economy and Things happening that. They're having to pace themselves and do what they can sue operate at the level they want to operate to maintain their brand standards and then but always before thinking and they're still plenty of room to do things out there.

"For the average everyday family camper the the most popular places that we find our Don Carter State Park, which I mentioned, which has phenomenal RV camping sites, and then river forks park is kind of a hidden gem. It's actually run by hall county it's on the lake. Is. One of the only places that are open for camping twelve months of the year as well. So they have beautiful beach they have an event pavilion they Docs courtesy docks for boating, and so you can camp their rent a boat, the Marino bring the boat to the park for you and things like that. So it's a really nice spot to go, and then of course, the core has lots of camping as well, but it's very seasonal. So we know Lake Lanier islands. Destination for a while. Margarita, they'll take over the property. It's it seems to be more and more popular. I know going over I I like the difference you know like the change there are some of the family friendly activities for families at the property and I know that is also going to change seasonally as well. Yes. Yes it will and Lanier on's resort is still operated by the Williams family and Lanier neons, management, Margarita Ville came in. Now it's been two years ago almost three years ago as a operational partner. So there in the resort kind of operating within the bubble of the islands running the beach and waterpark and they have the. Land Shark Bar, and grill that's open year round that serves all kinds of food and drink on the beach, and then they do the harbor with Marina C- CAN store your. They are one of the new exciting things they've done. They're they're adding a bunch of dry stock stack storage for boats. So if you have a boat and you want to start there and dry stack, you can do that very soon there finishing up a new dry stack facility than they have, of course, the marina on the water where they have slips available that are covered in a gas stock and all that, and you can rent boats there. But the the islands itself I mean. It's almost fifty years that that it's been operating as a a a place for people to get away with sort of Atlanta's Hamptons We're only about forty five minutes from downtown. Atlanta, and we certainly are that beach and boating nation But at the resort, there's a luxuries lodging at legacy lodge they have villas at lake houses, and of course, the camping and the RV resort mentioned championship golf they have twelve holes that are on the water is one of the. Most scenic golf. This is in America and certainly very challenging as well because you're chipping your ball across the water about six times. So that's really tough but they're focused on total wellness and they have a lot of hiking trails and bike rental, and then the boating and the spa of course, and they do stand up paddle board. You can do Paddle Board Yoga on the lake and things like that. So there were really excited that they're getting very, very close to announcing a new hotel property that. Proposed for a while, so I would keep my eyes open for a news from the resort on that Margarita Villes been phenomenal partner with the resort and they've brought in, of course, the parrot head aesthetic lifestyle with a land art landing in Paradise Beach and all the fun that's goes along with that.

The latest count we had, which this year will probably have more We have about twelve million visitors to the lake a year and put that in perspective the Magic Kingdom at Disneyworld has fourteen million a year. So it's a lot of folks coming around this lake, but because it's so large, you can still have a very special and private experience. When you come to visit here, we kind of say that the lake has to sort of personalities the spring and summer it's you know the. Riviera of boats and Jet Skis and wave runners, and all the beaching and all the activities that you would expect to find at the lake, and then in the fall and winter, it's a little more chill laid back guided fishing for Trophy Bass geocaching hiking biking some paddle sports still happening throughout the year But more like the passive recreation. All kind of activity said, there's definitely a lot of choices and and also George the only George State Park on Lake Lanier. Don. Carter State Park. Is a kind of a jewel that we have that sometimes gets missed by all the noise from other things to see and do a great park. Yeah. It is and five bucks for a car load for the whole day.

Racing's Drug Kingpin: Randy Lanier
"Let's get into the story of Randy Lanier the weed racer yes. Yeah Oh Randy. Lanier was born in Lynchburg Virginia on September. Twenty second nineteen fifty four. His family moved to Broward County Florida when he was thirteen. There were few things a good old boy such as randy loved more than pot. He would frequently sneak out of school just ahead to the beach and smoke smoke. Do by the age of fifteen. He was selling pot to his classmates. Even after he dropped out of high school he would continue to sell to his. GED Randy would say honestly. I didn't even think about it as drug dealing it was just a way. Okay for me to smoke without having to pay for Kumon tally. When did you first smoke? Pot Yeah Probably fourteen fourteen I think at that point I was too afraid of it because like there is on on my way to school. There is a tunnel that went under a freeway. Go through and like that's where like the the Estonians of the burnout so by smoke and they all kind of frightened me a little bit rightfully so they were kind of rough kids but I I it was never about that in high school. I thought like I think looking back on. It was pretty like dude intervene. Kinda like weird. I couldn't wait to smoke pot. Yeah Yeah I would've smoked pot way earlier if I were popular enough to have any friends. Yeah like years later I realized tons of kids I knew were smoking weed and they were like totally cool but it was just like those tunnel. Kids'll uh-huh scared me away from it is the first time I smoked was in college On top of a parking garage that was across the street from our dorm And of course like it was out of an apple. Of course yeah I think everybody's I Branches out of an apple and of course it didn't have any effect act on me and then the second time it did me and my boy tyler went back to our dorm room and we did freestyle raps over McNamara. She's a few hours. That's that's the way to do it. It was very sick. I mean when I was a kid like we'd culture was just so much it was just painted in such a different way. Yeah you know like it's fly out of lax with weed in your pocket. They were like we don't care some of these stores. La Look like the frigging apple store like men and it's crazy and it's like it's very convenient and you don't. You don't feel weird about buying pot but I feel like I definitely like missed out on like that. Like illicit elicit like. Yeah I used to smoke such crappy pot but the fact that there are people making billions of dollars off a weed right now and still people serving life sentences for possession national or selling is a huge problem that we should address maybe an another another day on another episode pats anyway it by the age of Nineteen Randy began working for construction company where he continued to sell it. Because he's not only a jug. Dili's Kinda just like a lazy like he's he jug dealer because like I don't know who's round man overtime it's clientele grew increasing the size of orders as well as prophets as sports illustrated. PUT IT in time. Joints turned into Baggies baggies. Turned into bag bags turned into bricks. rix became bales ails sales of a push. teed Johnston the BAGGIES. I can't do it slow anyway. Now it's hard. He's very good to the one thousand nine year. Old Randy drug dealing was the most promising opportunity yet he said. Let's just say I was definitely making more money. Then I made Neilan boards all day. I believe one of his last purchases on his first I just want to point out. How like good? This dude is at just sound clips. Yeah you know like yeah. Very romantic quotes. Yeah yeah one of his first purchases with his newfound wealth was a twenty seven foot magnum sports speedboat. He purchased for eighteen grand. Initially the boat was only. I used recreationally. He would jump waves and just you know cruise around there but before long an associate recommended he put that boat vote into quote commercial. Use like selling ice cream from the boat. James I doubt it. Oh I looked up these magnum votes This speedboat in particular is like so cool yeah just long as hell low fast. They're sick this guy's cool and and just like that Randy lanier move from being a low level drug dealer to a mid level trafficker in the timing. Couldn't have been better It it was the early nineteen seventies. It was a smuggler's Paradise Man. It was like the pirate days trafficking into the US specifically really from Columbia was still unknown. Threat that would soon become one of the biggest drug crazed sees in US history and a new exotic strain of marijuana called Colombian Colombian gold was being grown on Colombia's Guajira peninsula and it was beginning to flood the American black market. The arrival of Colombian gold fueled fueled a boom in America. Known as La Bonanza meeting. Better the mayor which loosely translates into the marijuana. Bonanza guys we gotTA Marijuana Bonanza Hands. Of course Florida was the best place to import such a large amount by the early eighties. About three quarters of the United States marijuana supply originated from Columbia Razi in his first mission. He he went to the Bahamas to pick up one ton of marijuana. So you're gonNA see like yeah I'm going to grab my boat to the middle of the ocean and pick pick up a ton of pot two thousand pounds a week it's crazy Randy showed up to these specified coordinates in the middle of the ocean and another other. Bigger boat would pull up next to them and the the we yeah. What's up guys like? And they transferred all the bales from the big boat into the whole of Randy's speedboat and then he would get the hell out of there all right thanks town to go back toot sweet right. I picture him just like wearing a cowboy like no shirt gene short. I'm imagining as not to become a in in the story from now. Yeah I think that's a good way to imagine This this technique was super common speedboats. Like Randy's were fast enough to evade the long long arm of the law and it wasn't difficult for smugglers to slip up the intercoastal waterway and hide a labyrinth of Florida swamps. According to a report one trafficker could earn a return investment of around one hundred fifteen percent so it made sense for randy to do this with a speedboat and naturally after you know I mean it sounds like this is like trying to get people to do it which they probably were you can get a return of one hundred and fifty. Why don't you come to this lunch at the Holiday Inn? And I'll I'll tell you all about a way that you can get up to one hundred and fifteen percent return on your investment with one Boron. We'll even Lisa the boat. Yeah very reasonable reasonable interest rates. Naturally ready was hooked. He did this trip. He did this kind of trip often. In spite of risks linear loved tempting fate eight and living on the edge of disaster for Kenny loggins lurk he had multiple close calls including one time almost sinking his boat as it was way down down so much by marijuana despite everything he frequently alluded capture by the US coastguard and received a twenty five percent. Cut of his delivery. Delivery seems like a lot. I mean he's taking all the risks to me. That's I guess he was just like a runner yes he wasn't dealing to the public anymore. Now he's there's like a guy from the ocean is a post mates for we. Yeah in a in a way. Yeah do you post Manson anymore. I use post meets way too much. I try to be waste free But you know sometimes you just you just want to pack of EMINEM. I know in one thousand nine hundred ninety six at the age of twenty two Lanier married his high school sweetheart. Pam uh-huh with her help. He opened a jet ski and boat rental shop near Fort. Lauderdale as a front to launder the money and present an air of legitimacy gene under the guise of a boat rental shop he soon purchased a sixty five foot trawler. I looked. I looked up with these are trawlers are basically really big boats votes There could be like recreational trawlers or fishing trawlers. Like just imagine a sixty five foot boat milk you can look it up Your you'll probably imagine the right thing. It's a big big boat with low. Yeah he got one of those with Got A lot of room. That's bigger than I thought. Yep Yep sixty five feet him with a boat this thing that is a thick composed he could smuggle directly from Columbia. No longer having to stop open meet a A mothership down to the Bahamas with each delivery he made with a sixty five foot boat he could smuggle over eighteen thousand pounds sounds of pot into the US that allowed sweet sweet dreams Enoug- soon despite massive quantities. He has now smuggling he was always smart smart about it. Never visiting import twice in a row. He would load up in the port of Santa Marta in Colombia and he would either doc in the US in in New Orleans San Francisco and sometimes bridgeport Connecticut Far Ways up the coast. Yeah I mean just looking at those three locations locations that's a huge spread Like some of those trips could take like a week. Some of them can take like three weeks to get there. You know that's crazy. Yeah smuggling muddling much like racing and comedy is all about timing Lanier loved loved the adrenaline rush of almost being caught doing something so illegal but he needed more one day while visiting an auto show that was taking place. Within the Miami Ame Convention Center Linear stumbled upon a booth that was sponsored by a local driving club. He immediately realized that racing would give him the high he needed and impulsively possibly signed up and that is when the racing career of Randy Lanier started in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight at the age of twenty four to the guys. I'm twenty six now. You don't even own one boat. I don't own a boat. Never smuggled shifts this dudes in his third career now. Yeah he started out as like get drug dealer. And he's a drug trafficker now owns a boat rental company. That's three and now he's like you know what man I think. I'm going to give this race car driving the try. It's awesome randy bought in nineteen fifty-six Porsche three five six speedster for seventy five hundred bucks and competed in the production class races at the SCC a southeast regional championships. Although he had no clue what he was doing he was a natural with each race. He proved drastically eventually winning the e production class in nineteen eighty at age. Twenty six. How old I am? I've never won any production class. Some feeling inadequate inadequate. But that's fine
The policeman who arrested a president
"These days from from Boise to Britain TV. Talking heads and Barstool philosophers have been pondering one of the great mysteries of the US Constitution. Russian can the president of United States actually be indicted arrested handcuffed. The whole deal is. He's hit possible the prevailing answer. Is this nobody. But that's not entirely true. Ropel President Ulysses s grant knows or should I say new in eighteen seventy two while president the grant was arrested at the corner of thirteenth in 'em in the district this was not a high but it was at least theoretically speaking speaking a misdemeanor. The man who led the north to victory in the civil war was busted for speeding on his horse. Grants arrest was confirmed a few years ago by then district police chief Cathy Lanier. The story was told in a remarkable arkell but obviously forgotten article in the September twenty seventh nineteen o eight edition of The Washington Evening Star under the headline Only policeman who ever arrested a president. That policeman was William H West. A black man who had fought in the civil war since his retirement. The story said he has decided to let the public know the true story of the arrest. It begins with grants love of fast horses. General grant was an ardent admirers of a good horse in love. Nothing better then to sit behind a pair of spirited animals the star source said she was a good driver and sometimes let them out to try their metal and that's where grant as president wrote into the law. The police had been receiving complaints of speeding speeding or starregistry after mother and child had been run over and badly injured officer. West was dispatched to investigate as West. Spoke to witnesses another group of speeding horse. Carriages headed toward him including one driven by the president of the United States policeman. West held up his hand for them to stop the story. Said grant was driving a pair of fast steppers in. He had some difficulty in halting them but this he managed to do grant was a bit testy home. Well officer he said what do you want with me. Hello West replied. I want to inform you Mr President that you are violating the law by speeding along this street. Your fast driving sir. Her has set the example for a lot of other gentlemen. The president apologized promised. It wouldn't happen again. Galloped away away but grant could not curb his need for speed the next evening westwards patrolling at the corner the thirteenth and m streets when the president came barreling through again this time speeding so fast that it took him an entire block to stop. When West approached him? Grin was cocky. The Star article said he had a smile smile on his face that made him look like a schoolboy. Who'd been taught by teacher? Grants excuse for speeding was not unlike one. That's the probably being given somewhere right now on America's rose he had no idea he had been going so fast. West was sympathetic. But I I am very sorry Mr President to have to do it. He said for you are the the chief of the nation and I am nothing that a policeman but duty is duty Sir and I will have to place you under your arrest. It's worth pointing out here that standards of journalism especially with quotations were. We're not as rigorous back then as today so it's nearly impossible to know if this is the whole truth and nothing but the truth however linear did confirm the arrest and there are other historical references to it anyway grant in several of his speeding buddies who were also arrested went with west to the police station. He President of the United States was ordered to to put up twenty bucks as collateral. A trial was held the next day. Thirty two ladies of the most refined character and surroundings voluntarily came into the court and testified against the drivers. The Star story said the cases were contested bitterly. The judge imposed heavy fines and the scathing rebuke to the speeding drivers which didn't include the president.
"John Doe" who accused Kevin Spacey of sexual assault dies
"Kevin Spacey one of his sexual assault accusers died in the midst of a lawsuit unexpectedly and people won't as of right now it's on known causes and if you're not familiar with the store he's been accused by several different men of sexual harassment or assault mostly sexual assault he was massage therapists in and twenty eighteen he made the claim that during massage therapy. we have young kids a crown turned down give a couple things turned out three to one to turn down took the massage therapy Kevin Spacey grabbed his hand and they made him touches this diet private area gotcha and then they'll let me ask you real quick was he found not guilty criminally so this was a civil lawsuit this was this is a different there's another one that was thrown out recently as a separate one okay this is separate you still can sue right if you're found not guilty criminally as we've seen with OJ since I'll yet yeah because this is a lawsuit so this isn't a criminal thing I guess but this man had had remained a man who died unexpectedly who's a Kevin Spacey accuser has been he has not released his name did not wanna releases name I mean the court knows but in the ask the court not to relate releases ninety one people because he's embarrassed about it he's a middle aged man that was well respected his family's like devastated ha but he look for to standing up to Kevin Spacey is the report from his attorney. so the question is look at what happens when you just die in the middle of a lawsuit that you're pursuing or exciting as serious going on getting killed I wonder like the guy than the jail and steam. other Mister it's just seems like all these rich powerful people all of a sudden the main witness dying writing you seemingly CI a and a law and order episode like that would never happen and then it does I this is scary and I would imagine that if you are being sued by someone and then they die does it just go away is just over in the end I mean if the serious allegation then I I guess you would also think will think I'd have some to do with it and give you know I don't know we do have official about at least Lanier on at least so what's the deal with this Kevin Spacey thank Hey give warning Hey I love the analogy about law and order either they actually the writers of on order based on older episodes on real life legal situation that you're in line at one of the show's ripped from the headlines totally true they totally so all that stuff you see on there has some where in the United States actually occurred and they picked it up and put it in the chat mark I had the S. Kevin ironically the Kevin Spacey show that he was on what was called the political Shah house of cards that was based on a political things as well the murder in the sea in the craziness that goes on with the politics like seriously like we don't think we think of the movie stores up like that but Mike really go on debating on my real life people yeah US yeah like you said hell wild is it that all these in all these cases like mysteriously this key witness you know this guy going after Kevin Spacey mysteriously dies those are. yes the weather's no foul play suspected so you know the internet is but what happens like your to get your question what happens is so this is a civil lawsuit like you said this is not a criminal lawsuit so in a civil lawsuit this man who died he's the point if he's the one that was agreed that the right and so when that person dies that does have an impact on the case as an impact on the damages in the case it has an impact on who would receive those damages right because the plane as the guy who was aggrieved and harm is no longer around to receive those damages so what happens is with the Californication California and it's kind of similar all over there's a legal duty for the plaintiff's attorney to notify the court or notify here notify opposing counsel that your planet has died so they filed that notice so now that starts the clock ticking in the California court there's ninety days in which the plaintiffs counsel not must open in a state for the plan F.. and which is a lot of paperwork and I you know hiring having an estate attorney it's usually separate attorney and then follow substitution so that the estate becomes the plan F. instead of the actual individual if they do that within ninety days the lawsuit can go on but it becomes a lot harder to prove and the damages are impacted because now your key witness is gone visitors can I say Kevin Spacey took my hand and put it on his stuff right right now if it was a criminal trial lease Lanier any criminal trial and you're the one witness and the safe you died or or murdered let's say you died is that I mean the I guess that they don't do they throw it out right away or the so you're out. it's it's really depends kind of a case by case basis on what other evidence they have because some you know a lot of times in a criminal trial the key witness like numbers for all of the key witness has been dead from go right so that you you're still able to prove the case was more yes for a circumstantial type evidence I witness testimony some of that kind of stuff there's even a thing if you know your plaintiff is sick what they the massage therapist had terminal cancer or something his attorney didn't know that this case they had they known that they could have preserved his testimony in advance they could help. video. testimony in advance but they didn't notice that he didn't do that so in a criminal case they just you value waited based on other evidence of this crime and then if they don't really have other evidence of the crime they will often drop the charges if a key witness that now we're talking to our official turn at least a linear I do have a question okay so what you want if that's the case it almost makes it more enticing to kill the key witness. yes
Ukraine president's party leads ahead of parliamentary vote
"In April laniers Alinsky swept victory in Ukraine's presidential election it was a curious case of life imitating art misters Alinsky was the comedic star of show called Servant of the people I mean which depicted a regular guy swept into the presidency with a message of change once in power misters Alinsky wasted no time guy over what's going on in his inaugural speech. He said he would dissolve parliament and hold early elections. The vote will take place on Sunday on the ballot. This time is Mr Zielinski. Namesake Servant of the People party polls suggest it'll make a strong showing he needs it too if he's going to make good on his promises to Ukrainians frustrated with the old guard some of that old guard must be voted out of parliament in the Ukrainian system. The president has limited powers. I Know Snyder covers Ukraine economist most of the governing hours belong to parliament and government formed. I coalition in parliament so despite his victory presidents Alinsky has had pretty limited room for maneuver. He's been saddled with essentially okay the par Shankar government his efforts to make progress in terms of lawmaking have been stifled and so he's been restricted to sort of symbolic steps and I think he wants to take the real lovers of power but I mean can he what what sort of political influence dizzy hat I mean I I understand. He's a good sort of figure for people to focus on but do you think he can gather the political will he needs so if the polls are it'd be believed his party serving of the people is polling somewhere between forty and fifty percent some even in thinking might be able to gather pure majority regardless of whether they crossed the fifty percent threshold or not hill likely have the largest block in parliament and the dominant position in whichever coalition he chooses to form and in part it is a reflection of what people have seen in him so far he's made a series of sort of symbolic steps things like canceling a military parade and instead paying bonuses to servicemembers reducing the number of the presidential staff announcing plans as he had promised during the campaign to move the presidential administration from its old imposing Soviet headquarters. These are things that have signaled to voters that he's serious about change and so far Ukrainians are choosing to believe but I mean the single biggest thing they went to believe is that undue influence on the government by all the guards and the like will go away I mean does he presented credible chance of that exactly and this is the rub as always in Ukraine where the political system is under the grip of oligarchs. Mr Lansky has faced questions about his ties to one oligarchy in particular eager Colombo ski who was the owner of the T._v.. Channel on which Mr Leonides comedy shows ran in recent years when you take a look at the list of candidates for his party it seems to be a real l. sort of grab bag of genuine young reformers and political novices looking to make a mark for the first time old friends and associates from his previous life as an actor and folks with some questionable ties including two oligarchs so the parliamentary list is in some ways manifestation of Lewinsky's desire to be everything to everyone and the question will be if Mr Zelinski does manage to gather a parliamentary coalition and form government. What kinds of laws will start to push firsthand? How directly will he challenged the oligarchy interests? It's still largely controlled Ukraine. So what exactly is he planning to do to address those concerns. His policy platform has been quite heavy on things like introducing more what he calls snug avoided avoided direct democracy decentralizing if you will more power to the people removing immunity from deputies M._p.'s parliament so some somewhat populist moves like that the question of sort of economic policies policies a bit fuzzier. He's promised to continue with the steps required under an i._M._F.. Loan program it's helping to prop up Ukraine's economy even to this day. He's promised to pursue tough anti corruption measures but his legislative agenda. We'll really come into focus. Once parliament forums it is a bit of a smorgasbord something for everyone and it seems to be working as intellectual strategy well working at least as the polls are concerned anyway. What do you think he intends to do regarding relations? Into Russia and the conflict in eastern Ukraine this is another obviously major if not the major issue for Lansky and for his presidency he's taken a different approach in certain important ways to par Shaneco are Sankoh pursuit of very a outright ethno nationalist even approach to the conflict Zilenski has been more willing to talk about and pursue building ties with the people not necessarily the leadership of but the people stuck in the Russian controlled controlled separatist territories in eastern Ukraine. He's been more flexible about the use of language switching freely between Russian and Ukrainian Russian being spoken more commonly in the east of the country and he's already engaged in some direct diplomacy even with Putin himself. There's a potential prisoner exchange in the works and that would be certainly a signal of positive movement and perhaps assign that the two leaders are engaged in a more constructive dialogue than in the past but at the same time Lansky will have to fight off horses domestically who will accuse him of being too nice as it were to folks in the east of getting to engaged with Putin and that will present challenge for him going forward and so all told what chances do you give him move overturning public opinion of reading the government of undue influence of stabilizing the economy of normalizing relations with Russia. What what odds do you give success in terms of the symbolism? He's already had some big successes his figure his person in in and of itself represents a new Ukraine a post Soviet generation or generation that didn't make its name and it's money in the murky division of assets after the fall of the Soviet Union the Ukrainian populace at large already beginning to have a more rosy outlook about the future about the direction of the country the downside is that if he can't fill that shiny new form with the content of governance that could be real disillusionment and he'll be up against deeply entrenched interests and forces throughout out the bureaucracy throughout the economy throughout the state know how to run this system and how to work this system much better than the former comedian turned resident.
Riot Games reveals Mordekaiser's new abilities
"We finally have some gaming news and it's the title I messed up on a way back when while yours your first look at league of legends. Moi Decatur, and I did again, more Decatur rework now. It's been on the cards for a while now while champion producer rive in Mireles announced, now that the master of metal would be getting a new look earlier this year, he's needed a change for significantly longer than many of, you know, I think he did do an earlier tack. I swear Hughes rework not too long ago. While we now have a better idea of what form that will take any post earlier today. The developer gave us our first look at the champions, new abilities while significant chunks of his kit are pretty standard there undergoing some major changes, either his w nor his e will remain the same after the update the most notable change. However, is to his alternate ability, while Mordecai, there has been in the past able to conjure ghostly version of the champions are dragons that he. He helps to kill that set to change Mordecai's new ultimate realm of death is the solo Lanier's dream, letting him take on a champion of his Tuesday in one on one battle to death while but further ado, let's take a look at those new abilities now is passive is called darkness rise mortifies, basic attacks deal. Bonus magic damage after three attacks against the champion darkness rises deals damage to nearby enemies in gives movement speed until more. Kaiser is out of combat his Cuba's called obliterate Mordechai slams down his Mace dealing damage in an area or bonus damage to a single enemy is w is indestructible the evil overlord absorbs twenty five percent of damage taking in damage dealt casting once generates a shield with this value. Mortifies can cast again to consume fifty percent of the shield for health is e is now called death grass. It's a passive where he gained twenty five percent. Magic. Penetration. I guarantee you that was going to be changed in passionate Donald, but if it's active a deadly claw Drake's enemies towards him dealing damage now. What about his new alternate are well, Rahm of death. Mordechai banishes, a single enemy champion to the death realm for a seven second, one v one ceiling eight percent of their core stats if he kills his target, he consumes, their soul keeping their partial stats until they respond now to be honest relocate with that, while the Q N W particular, pretty much the same but desk, grap desk, grasped should help offer some much needed crowd control. Now. What the heck kind of ultimate exists borrows pretty heavily from the yu-gi-oh animated series shadow round, but well gloss over that in favor of the seven second one v one net.

"lanier" Discussed on The Vergecast
"Henry it's Neil live from the verge cast. I'm super excited about this week's interview episode. It's with Jaron Lanier who is one of the early pioneers of virtual reality. I mean like really early. He's written incredible books. One of the founding documents of the virgin my mind is a book he wrote called. You are not a gadget he lately has been working as an interdisciplinary scientists, Microsoft journeys all over the place. He is thought about everything he's been deep in it from the beginning. And we talked about something that I think is really coming in the mainstream now, which is the idea that the data you generate is a consumer and a user the digital world is valuable, and you should be compensated for it in various ways, and you shouldn't just give things away for free. And I think the early part of the internet was really about crowd sourcing sharing economy as people sharing everything about themselves for free. And what we realized we talked about a lot on the show is that the platforms enabled that sharing gotten wildly rich and the rest of us may be having germs writing about that four ever literally forever. He's been writing this. Talking about it can so I caught up with him. And what really surprised me is how excited in positive. He is the changes come in positive real changes coming because we have finally started thinking about this stuff. So a big contrast some of the other conversations I've had and also just one of the wildest every possible direction conversations about tech in life that I've had in a long time really want you to listen to this. Let me think Jaron Lanier. Okay. We're here with Jaron. Lanier welcome. Thanks so much for having me on. Thank you for being here. I got to say, I'm a huge fan as an honor to talk to you. I said this before. But when we were starting the verge in twenty eleven your book, you are not a gadget was deeply inspirational to us because it was if the audience hasn't read it, you guys should start your Carson pullover and order it right now, it is a book about how technology makes you think. And how you might think about technology. That's something. I think about all the time. Dear Bonar, executive editor thinks about all the time and something you have been writing about in various ways very critically for some time. So I want to start with where you think we are we done a good job of in critical about how technology makes us think. Well, Chris well, thank you so much for your kind words and as far as where we are. I believe we're in the beginning of a process of learning how to deal with technology. I think we're in a better place than we were a year or two ago. There's a more informed dialogue. I think the tech world has become more used to the idea of thinking through what it all really means. So I'm I'm feeling more optimistic and energize than I have in a while. I'm I'm I think we're at the beginning of the beginning here. I think we're starting to really understand how computing can work in our lives and in civilization we dived into it before with nothing. But naievety and optimism, and we're growing up where we're just we're toddlers, but were, but it's happening. And so I'm I'm happy. That's that's remarkably refreshing to hear I have to say, we I've been interviewing a lot of people on the show, and one of the reasons I wanted to talk to you in particular was so many folks talk to are deeply focused on problems. They're saying these things are problems, and it's very fresh to hear from somebody who says we're at the beginning of solutions. So even at this for a really long time you've been in competing industry since it sorta burst onto the scene. Would you say there are like stages what stage of this are we at? Well, I call this toddlers, and the reason I'm I'm saying that is that toddlers are growing up there gaining cognitive skills. They're gaining expertise. They're gaining self awareness. But there are also often really Pissy and annoying and difficult. They're often, narcissistic, they often have tantrums, and that's tech culture right now. So I choose to frame it in a positive light. But it definitely has that quality of working through a very difficult stage of donning self-awareness. It's not easy..
