We've got an update from the national transportation safety board on the highly publicized accident involving accessible vehicle in texas a couple of weeks ago. We've got news on tesla. Energy manufacturing batteries and of course elon musk's appearance on saturday. Night live over the weekend rough start to the week. Four tesla's stock finishing down nearly six and a half percent today to six hundred and twenty nine dollars four cents that compared to the nasdaq down over two and a half percent the worst day in a couple of months for the nasdaq and we did see sector rotation today the dow was only down a tenth of a percent as the dow is generally made up of lower growth more value oriented stocks. So i know the tesla down. Six percent can sometimes feel a little bit rough especially for new investors but for context arc's innovation. Etf so a group of a lot of different stocks was down by itself five percent today. Obviously tesla driving a portion of that but certainly the movement was not just isolated to tesla.

I i up today. We are revisiting the unfortunate accident back in mid april of decimal ice vehicle in texas. As i'm sure most of you remember this received a ton of media attention because at the time law enforcement said that they were one hundred percent certain that no one was in the driver's seat of the model s. at the time of impact. You may remember that. At the time we went through a number of different reasons why the seemed implausible. And i felt like law enforcement was speaking far too soon saying they were one hundred percent certain of something without even having done a full investigation yet so too soon too much conviction and this led to massive media coverage of this accident. A lot of scrutiny. For tesla you've got consumer reports coming out and running some test about how they can defeat these safety features built in to help prevent people from using autopilot beyond its intended use case just keeps getting piled on all because of this one quote from law enforcement so here we've got the preliminary report from the ntsb quote.

"law enforcement" Discussed on Malicious Life
"One month before the new york times published. The story of robert williamson. Police officers killed. George floyd we all remember the weeks that followed the protests that broke up around. The country garnered tension around the world. It was so engrossing watching those scenes of civil strife that an otherwise remarkable part of the story went almost entirely on the radar in fifteen cities is the department of homeland. Security deployed planes helicopters and drums to watch over the protesters. The aircraft hovered over protesters in new york philadelphia. Detroit feeding customs and border patrol man centers which streamed the intel to police forces and national guard on the ground in minneapolis and the a secret rc. Twenty-six be reconnaissance. Blaine worked with ops on the ground streaming video feeds to an fbi command center in another instance in the top spending in the ficials ordered helicopters to provide quote persistent presence to disperse crowds. He helicopters flew so low to the ground that the sheer downward pressure from their rotor. Blades ripped the signs off of billions. And of course since protesters running this was something out of science fiction full on military intelligence operation on. Us land in later reporting military and government officials insisted that none of the aircraft deployed on protesters were equipped with fisher recognition capabilities in most cases. The aircraft were so high up that facial recognition would be moot. You can't make out face from a blip from nineteen thousand feet but even if some planes flew close enough to capture individual faces be problematic according to the new york times at least two hundred and seventy hours of protests footage was captured by the aircraft and uploaded to big pipe. Dhs network which can be accessed by other law enforcement agencies around the country for future investigations. Video in big pipe can be stored for up to five years. One potential concern then. Is that if a plane recorded. Good enough video. It wouldn't need real time fisher. Recognition on board an agency like the fbi could access that footage weeks or months later to identify individual protesters. It's entirely possible that this hasn't and won't happen but around the country police have already utilized facial recognition to identify and in some cases arrest individual. Blm protesters the extent of it is unknown. Police have no obligation to report on the run. Your face through a machine or concerns me is there's currently no limits at all none at all and so they can also use it to take a look at everybody who is in a peaceful protest of some sort And then take down their names and Hassle him or arrest them or give them trouble in one way or another or simply file them in a database as person of interest. None of which we want to have happen to us. This is ted claypool a lawyer and an author on legal issues surrounding privacy. And a here's one example of what ted means by no limits. Batanes out you can be arrested and not even know that facial recognition played partnered one. Protester less summer oriana albor knows was arrested for throwing rocks at police line.

Welcome to the show I. . Thanks for having me. It's . great to be here. . Gabriel. . Today we're going to be talking about law enforcement reform and I know that you have a lot of thoughts on the subject first of all before I really get into the. Weeds . of the question would I have found is whenever you are taking a position that is critical in any way of law enforcement or attempts to raise questions even about the way law enforcement agencies do anything. . It is extremely important to establish your own bona fide <unk> because anybody who steps up to challenge law enforcement is immediately regarded with suspicion. . Paranoia is dismissed as a quote Lib tarred Troll anti-cop Antifa, , whatever I'm none of those things I am someone who for the last twenty years has been an advocate for slain police officers and their families through editorials commentaries in newspapers I've attended over ten police funerals in Philadelphia, , down to Maryland. . I have done a lot of advocacy work for law enforcement in regard to mental health of first responders. . I'm very well aware of the suicide rate for police officers. . I am someone who knows law enforcement culture. . I am someone who has a respect for police officers and what they do, , and so I just want people to know that I am doing this from a place of love and concern and from a position of someone who believes ardently that they're absolutely needs to be changed and radical reimagining of law enforcement across the board. . Thank you Gabriel for say and all that, and , I agree with many of your points and I wanna point out that you were a recent guest on another podcast I have the pleasure of hosting not crazy and you had so much to say, , well it it's built over into a second podcast. . I strongly encourage all of our listeners to head over to central dot com slash not crazy and check out that interview. . Alright. . Gabriel to get started. . You believe that in many ways we're recruiting the wrong people and that a lot of our problems start early even before police officers get into the academy. . Yes. . Look at the people who go into law enforcement. . Okay. . A lot of people decide they WANNA be cops when their children, , they're watching shows like cops they're watching shows like law and order they're watching the weapon movies even as far as Hill Street Blues I would say that this problem started with Hillstreet Blues, , the opening credits of Hillstreet Blues. . I, love , the music and then the garage door opens and the Plymouth fury is in the garage with red lights bursting out of the graduates exciting, , right so who is drawn to that Profession Action Junkies? ? It's people who want that adrenaline rush and then we put them in situations where they're in a constant state of hyper arousal they're always looking around they're doing the head swivel. . Someone's GonNa hurt me as someone GonNa, shoot , me. . In a twenty five year career most police officers never fire their weapon. . Never fire their weapon once. . Many. . Many police officers never pulled their weapon and yet that's the kind of human being that is drawn to that profession and I have had people tell me well, , we pull in people who are really resilient well is that what you're doing or are you pulling in people who are craving action and are not necessarily maybe the most empathic people because a law enforcement agency can't function if a police officer responds to a call and then starts falling apart emotionally because they can't process what they saw. . So maybe law enforcement is either consciously or subconsciously trying to pull people in who maybe don't have that kind of empathic response. . That's not who I want riding around in a patrol car with a firearm and the power of arrest.

"Over the years, but they were not nothing. None of this is very specific. And so there was really nothing. So Lieutenant stout was lucky in the sense of the Gainesville rally was kind of fizzle because the protesters far overwhelmed, the white nationalist who came, but it will straits your larger point that he couldn't find information about who might becoming and what the threat might be. So whose job is it to be monitoring extremists on the far, right? Who do pose a threat of islands? The joint terrorism task forces the D H S run fusion centers at the local level. They are able and should be able to at least track p pay attention to these events. That's the first number one pay attention to these events where there's repeated violence in their public and to take a look at who's engaging in the violence, and chances are most of those guys who are really engaging in violence are people who are violent many of them have criminal histories. They are in the system at that point. There are any number of law enforcement agencies that can do a little digging and can alert the next town. That's planning. I mean, these guys announced their events quite some time in advance. So that's enough time for both local and state and federal law enforcement to look at who have been the more violent people within these groups. What have they done? Do. They have any history of violence. Do they have? Criminal histories are. They out on parole and just monitor them that is what does not seem to be getting done. So you're saying there isn't much there. There aren't many resources being put toward far right extremism. But if you compare the numbers of violent attacks from jihadis in the US extremist Muslims with the number of attacks from far right extremists in the US, like white, nationalist. How do the numbers compare the number of far-right extremist attacks and deaths related to far-right extremism vastly vastly outnumber the number of dust connected to his lungs extremism. It's by the AD L the information because the numbers from twenty seventeen I believe we're seventy one percent of the cases of domestic extremists related violence were committed by members of the far-right twenty six percent or Islam extremists. I mean, these numbers will vary depending on who's counting and how they're counting. But if you look at a survey of maybe five or six different groups that look at these numbers, the one conclusion, you can draw is that the far right is responsible for the majority of these incident you right after President Trump came into office. That's security analysts noted with alarm, which seemed to be a systematic erosion of the department of homeland security's analytic and operational capabilities with regard to countering violent extremism, and you're referring there to violent extremism from the far. Right. And that this began with the appointment of a new national security team. What were the features of this new national security team when President Trump came to to the White House. So Donald Trump was advised prior to being elected by in terms of national security by a number of people who came from what? What we might call the Islamic phobic fringe, including people like Frank Gaffney who is a long time peddler of anti Muslim conspiracy theories in Washington. He's former Reagan administration official and when Trump came in. He brought with him people like we'll Steve Bannon embrace some of these ideas, you had Sebastian Gorka and his wife, Catherine gorba- who had run this little think tank in Washington, which was very much devoted to anti-islam perspective, anti jihad perspective, this is in in some ways, there is an industry in his Lama phobia industry, similar.
