"mcmichael" Discussed on The Lead

"Very significant story. I agree completely. So on that note, Dan, you recently spent time with bear's legend Steve mcmichael and some of his closest friends and family members. First, can you just paint a picture of the scene for us? Where exactly were you and what was going on? So I was in his home in suburban Chicago where his wife misty mcmichael has set him up to hopefully live out the rest of his days. The doctors told her that they really would like to have him in an assisted living situation from then on, but she wouldn't have it. She said, no, I want to bring him home and I want to be his caretaker as much as I can be. She has help from some nurses who come quite frequently. He set up in his own bedroom and there's a lot of medical equipment in the room. He's got a medical bed special bed. On the wall over his bed is a big cross, and then next to that. Is a great kind of an artist rendition of him when he was a player. And it's based off of a photograph of him and it kind of reminds you everything that he was and there's a stark contrast between everything he was in that photo and everything he is now that ALS is obviously taking a toll on his body and his physical condition. Steve was always very lively with his jokes and just talking to folks in jail. The day that I saw him, there were a number of people kind of some in and out, but among them were some of his former teammates, including Dan Hampton, who is almost like a brother to him, you know, they were line mates on the bears, the great bears teams in the 1980s, and you know, they kind of talk about old times and relive the past as old teammates always do. You run them down and tell them. You tackles them. What is wrong with the 13? 25. Losing the game. The great thing about that situation and that environment is that despite the suffering that he's going through, which is significant, he really lifts up the other people around him. No one would want to be in the situation that he's in. He's got a very uplifting attitude, a positive outlook and, you know, he smiles and he laughs, and it wouldn't be easy for a lot of people in the same position that he's in to be as upbeat as he is. Well, let's come back to present day steeping Michael a little later because for now Dan, I want to remind the clock for a minute and talk about the Steven Michael that's in that picture beside his bed that you mentioned. Can you take us back to the 1980s and remind us what kind of player Steve mcmichael was? Well, first of all, he was part of arguably the greatest defense that ever existed and really one of the pillars of the greatest defense that ever existed is kind of junkyard dog defense that literally barked at opponents. They were legendary. He read it beautifully. They were just a ferocious unit. Dan Hampton, Richard dent Mike Singletary. All of them are Hall of Famers with the exception of mcmichael. He was a really good pass rusher. Like 95 career sacks, which ranks high on the all time sack list among defensive tackles and also was a very stout run player. Out of a shotgun formation here's the snap to Chris Chandler. Looks downfield. Hit from behind. Steve mcmichael. A guy who kind of always did his job to the point that others were able to kind of freelance a little bit and do things that enable them to make splash plays. I'll tell you what he's probably the most underrated player in the NFC, if not, if not the NFL, he was so overshadowed by Hampton and Singletary. You know, I don't think he ever got the glory that he deserved to tell you what the guy comes and he fights every game. So really, he was an outstanding player that probably never was given a credit that he deserved. And toss about some of the things that gave him such a colorful personality. Well, you know, he was a Texas guy. He grew up in freer Texas where they sometimes hunted rattlesnake and he liked to have a good time. He was the type of guy who could throw back The Crown royal and get after a little bit off the field as well as Anne. It's funny, Steve mcmichael is a guy who has like this dual personality. He's nuts off the field, but on the field he's very, very straight ahead, very meticulous, does not make mistakes a very disciplined ballplayer. He was initially drafted by the New England Patriots, but he did not fit in there and they caught him. And ended up coming to Chicago and, you know, just found a bunch of like minded people. He never had his personality suppressed in Chicago. Ended up being a big celebrity in terms of doing television work as well. And he did some things that were pretty crazy on TV. Do you know me? I play for the Chicago Bears too. Every game since 1981 in these freezing winners. So you know I've done my duty. Why is it only getting noticed when I hit some newscaster with shaving cream or a whisky bottle? And Dan, can you explain Steve mcmichael's pretty unusual nickname as well? Yeah, well, he's got two nicknames. One is called Mongo, who is his Mongo anyway. Well, my goal in exactly a who is more of a what? Which is after the character that Alex caris played in blazing saddles. Of course, Hall of Fame defensive tackle himself. And the character Mongo is famous for punching a horse in the mouth and knocking him out. Hey, you can't park that animal over there. It's illegal. Just kind of this crazy guy that Steve mcmichael certainly persona 5. And then his other nickname was Ming the merciless, you know, after the character from the science fiction show that was just, you know, had no mercy for anyone that he came up against. After the earthquake, some tidal waves they won't be quite the human beings you'll remember. They'll be more tractable. Easier for you to rule. And the name of Ming. You know, he certainly had some of that in him too. I love that people looked at Steve mcmichael and were like, that guy looks like he could knock out a horse. And he definitely could, you know, one of the strongest players of his era without a doubt. You know, I knew him back when he was playing. And was once with him in a weight room and saw him put 500 pounds on a bench press bar in most guys when they bench press, especially a lot of weight, they'll put their hands kind of far out a little bit, which actually shortens the distance that you have to go up and down. He put his hands kind of close together. It almost a close grip bench press. And it was just tremendously powerful. Well, day and after Steve mcmichael's pro football career wrapped up. And I'm actually not sure how many people know this about him. He ended up making a transition to another very high profile form of entertainment. I guess you could say, can you talk a little about him becoming a pro wrestler and what his career was like? If anyone was born to be a pro wrestler with Steve mcmichael. He picks him up. Knocks his head right off. You know, he had ponytail down to his rear end and he just fit the part perfectly. This is a championship place to showcase championship athletes. You know, his ex-wife Deborah was kind of a foil who was in a lot of plots that they wrote where other wrestlers were attracted to her and he was fighting down the wrestlers and then she dumped him and went with another wrestler. And now he's watched once his wife, look at the cold steering giver. Yeah, and he's got that look like he believed the difference happening to him. I can't believe it's happening. And life actually ended up imitating art because they did end up getting a divorce and she ended up marrying Stone Cold Steve Austin. So that was pretty funny. I guess I wasn't funny to them, but maybe funny to the people who are watching pro wrestling. He was one of the four horsemen for a long time. Partner with Rick flair and RNA Anderson, but it was a nice little career running ahead for about four or 5 years. What else has he done in his post football days? Well, he's been one of these guys who's been a professional X bear, really, and he's made a living off of being this great bear. He's done some media work. He has a restaurant called Mongo mcmichaels. At one point, he ran for the mayor of a suburban town in Chicago called romeoville did not win. And he's also been a member of a band with some of his bears teammates, including Dan Hampton and Otis Wilson, called the Chicago 6. And he was quite a singer. So he always kind of had a good amount to do as a former bear. Sure sounds like it. Well, walk us through when and how Steve mcmichael got this diagnosis that changed his life. You know, I spent some time with him in the summer of 2020 and, you know, I noticed that he had lost a lot of weight, really didn't think much of it. He said at the time he was having problems because he had some neck issues that were kind of causing him problems with his grip and his fingers. And nobody really thought anything of it. They thought it was all related to the fact that he hit his head against other people for a living for many years. He ended up going to a few different places to find out what was going on and every place he went. Came back with what we think it might be ALS. It's a disease that attacks the nerve cells that are responsible for muscle control. It takes away your ability to move all of your body parts, eventually it takes away your ability to speak to swallow, ultimately it even kind of suppresses your breathing. There is no definitive test that says you have ALS, but more and more symptoms kept showing that that's what he did in fact have. You know, he couldn't open a bottle. After a while he was having a hard time driving. So it became pretty clear in that fall that that's what was going on. Because I'm not going to be out in the public anymore. I'm not going to be playing in the Chicago 6 anymore. I'm not going to be on the ESPN radio anymore. He announced that he had ALS in April of 2021. And the public's response was overwhelming and heartwarming. There were several fundraisers for him. There was a GoFundMe page. The ALS is very expensive. Proposition. And he did not have the means to pay for everything that he needed to pay for and insurance does not step in on that either. Mcmichael has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of compassion he's felt during this fight and he couldn't financially do it without the benefit of both the NFL and the bears. There.

"Dot com and schedule your free estimate today It's four 11 A jury in southeast Georgia has found Travis mcmichael his father Greg mcmichael and their neighbor William roddy Bryan guilty of murdering ahmaud Arbery an unarmed black man who had been jogging through a neighborhood in Brunswick when he was chased and shot to death The defendants say they suspected Arbery of burglaries Travis mcmichael claimed he shot Arbery in self defense The trial became part of a larger national reckoning on racial injustice Veronica waters covered the trial from start to finish for WSB radio in Atlanta She spoke with WTF's Sean and Mike about the trial I think that the defense lawyers in this case did an amazing job I mean you had some really skilled defense attorneys here The prosecution though said listen jury this claim of citizens arrest in self defense This was all made up for trial And she pointed to the defendant's own words that day that no one ever said they were trying to arrest them on Arbery no one ever brought up a citizen's arrest or made a claim of self defense until these men were indicted I think that she did a good job in sort of painting a picture for the jury about why the defense arguments did not hold water You can't claim self defense if you're the initial unprovoked aggressor And there would be no struggle over a shotgun as the defense said that there was if these men hadn't chased Arbery around for 5 minutes before that moment happened And so I was a little surprised because I have never been able to really predict what a jury is going to do And I was curious to see what the mix might be of guilty and not guilty verdicts was going to be as you know the shooter Travis mcmichael was convicted on all of the counts His father Greg convicted on 8 of the 9 their neighbor roddy Bryan convicted on 6 of the 9 but neither one of those latter two men was convicted of the malice murder counts That was the only one that stuck to Travis mcmichael And that means here in Georgia automatic life sentences when you're convicted of murder when they are sentenced judge Timothy Wong's leg will decide whether or not they have the possibility for parole Can you talk a bit about how the city prepared for the verdict when it comes to maybe police presence and just around the heaping the security outside this courthouse What I know is that preparations had been put in place even before the trial started as we were on the eve of jury selection we knew that there had been a meeting in the city There were lots of officers on call We saw it outside the courthouse State patrol members out there Everybody ready to keep the peace of course they knew that something could happen although I do want to note that there had never been any violence or destruction in Glenn county since the killing of ahmaud Arbery demonstrations have been loud and forceful but they have not been destructive or violent But just in case there were preparations in Atlanta even as people prepared for whatever this verdict might bring But we did hear from a lawyer for the arbor family as well as from Arbery's father himself Marcus Arbery He said we want this jury to come back with a verdict in an honest way He was trying to say we don't want anybody to intimidate them as one of the defense attorneys kept saying about the black passage in the courtroom This might influence the jury to vote one way or the other We want them to go and convict based on the evidence which we believe that there is to convict these men And I think that's what happened The border of Veronica waters from WSB radio in Atlanta in conversation with WTF's Sean and Mike coming up on Public schools without librarians a problem the D.C. council's working on I'm Michelle marello Sports next Is always on even when your car isn't Download the app to listen live.

"On the third day of deliberations as the first of the 27 verdicts were read and the judge said guilty Arbery's father Marcus loudly cheered in the courtroom CBS News special reports I'm Steve futterman Glenn ivy is a former prince Georges county state's attorney He's also been a defense attorney He spoke with W TOP's Dmitri and Dell about the verdicts what surprised him and what he expected It's fairly thoughtful verdict I thought So they didn't just convict on all things or acquit on all things They convicted on all 9 counts for Travis mcmichael who was the shooter But they also differentiated between that mcmichael and his father They didn't convict him of the malice murder charge And then for the individual that had the camera they acquitted him on four counts but convicted him on the other So it looked like they put a lot of time and effort into sorting through the evidence and applying the law You talked about roddy Bryan the man who made the video of the episode did you think that perhaps he would not serve any prison time or be convicted on fewer counts Well I did think he would be convicted on fewer counts I was concerned frankly that he might be acquitted entirely I was pleasantly surprised to see that he was convicted But I think you raised a good point sentencing still coming And I do think mister Brian's attorneys are going to make a strong pits that he should be sentenced in a much more lenient way certainly than Travis mcmichael who was the shooter Lots of people trying to make sense of this case just a pose against the case of teen Kyle rittenhouse and Wisconsin your thoughts Yeah I mean it's been a whip saw week from the standpoint of those two cases and you throw in the Charlottesville civil case against the neo Nazis as well but you know I think the point here was the jury felt that there was strong evidence that these three men with two firearms chasing one man who was unarmed And it's hard to make a self defense claim that's viable out of that So I thought the jury came out right here I had some differences with the rittenhouse verdict especially with some of the judges rulings but the concern I have out of the two of these cases combined Let me say it this way is that I'm worried about whether the country is on the right track with respect to finding justice in these cases I'm pleased with this case The harbor case certainly Derek Chauvin over the summer But you're really kind of come down to do you have to have video of clearer evidence of guilt in order to get a conviction in these cases I think that's a concern we're going to have going forward If George Floyd was about serious problems in American policing what about this case in terms of a person of color going about his life still being in danger for doing what we would call routine things That's the tossed up between this case and written house You know sort of the vigilante approach that many citizens seem to want to take especially with respect to black males but not solely is one of the challenges The other issue that came up in the rittenhouse case I thought was if you're in a situation where there's an active shooter what are you supposed to do Because the two people who were shot second after the first individual that's what they thought was happening They thought this was an active shooter case We've been telling people to try and defend yourselves and disarm the shooter But one of those men was killed another one was injured trying to do that So you know we've got unclear messages coming out of this week We've got a lot of work to do in this country but hopefully we can move it in the right direction Former prince George's county state's attorney Glenn ivy coming up on Public schools without librarians a problem that D.C. councils working on I'm Michelle Morello sports next to 14 WTO P and silver diner now bring you free lunch Friday for friends and family to thank you for listening to three winners every Friday Good for dine in carry out a curbside pickup Your choice Enter today at WTO P dot com search free lunch Sports at 15 and 45 powered by Red River technology decisions aren't black and white Think red Mount a rob wood for the capitals had a triumphant return home from their West Coast road trip scoring early and often to beat the Montreal Canadiens 6 to three coach Peter lavia led sums it up We got it out got it through and got it in and if that meant wouldn't it behind him in four check and that worked really well I thought we got away from him a little bit in the second period and if you come through the neutral zone you're not taking care of the pocket comes back pretty quick for the first period was excellent And I thought we got back to it a little bit in the third period and able to push more but the second period was just you know we just kind of shot ourselves in.

"Courtroom the three white men charged in the death of ahmaud Arbery were found guilty of murder After deliberating for about ten hours the nearly all white jury found Greg mcmichael his son Travis mcmichael and their neighbor William roddy Bryan guilty of nearly all the criminal counts they faced Civil rights attorney and former prosecutor Charles colman junior is here to talk more about it Welcome back to the program So glad to be here Thank you for having me Is this a case where people could see the verdict coming meaning what do we know about how the prosecutors laid things out that brought us to this point Well I don't think that we can ever see a verdict coming I don't want us to take for granted any verdict because everyone is always going to see some things differently And so the fact that they arrived at this verdict together was a testament to how clearly the prosecution was able to lay out their case to walk the jury through the charges one by one for east defendant and to connect each of the defendant's actions to the specific things that they were charged for and allow the jury to make a very pinpointed very clear decision which is what we saw and why we have the verdict that we do To get into the detail of that you have Greg mcmichael Travis mcmichael and roddy Bryan their neighbor who actually filmed this killing Can you talk about what their defense was that in a way has been rejected by the jury It was heavily on self defense That was the idea the idea was that this was something that they did out of fear for their lives For mister Brian the argument that his attorney attempted to advance was his client didn't have knowledge that the mcmichaels intended to do whatever it was that they intended to do But that his client should not have been held accountable because his role overall was minimal The jury did not buy either of those things I suspect with respect to the mcmichaels the provocation was just so great that it's very difficult to overcome it with a claim of self defense In the case of mister Bryan they did not convict him on the murder with malice basically They convicted William Ronny Bryant of what's called felony murder So what I see when I look at this verdict tells me that the jury was very careful to look at the specific charges and wanted to make sure that they got it right So the jury rejected the idea that their actions that day were somehow self defense and now I understand that the three still face federal hate crime charges So how does this set up that next case Well it's just up the basics I think this notion of a citizen's arrest which is also what the mcmichaels attempted to advance as part of their initial decision of defense before they switched gears Mid trial All of those things have been blown out of the water I think that we are likely going to hear during the federal civil rights prosecution of this case a greater deal around race I believe there was some conversation about the Internet search history of mister mister Bryan the use of the racial epithets as well as I think the presence of confederate flag on I believe the mcmichael's truck All of those are types of things that will add substance to some of the other elements of this crime but it remains to be seen what's going to happen once this interesting into the federal courts How do you think about this case in terms of its victim What does this moment mean to you as someone who watches these things closely Well I think if you're very important moment for about Aubrey I think it's important moment for his family and loved ones I do hope that they receive some sense of closure but in the larger scale of things it still is one that should cause concern And the reason why it should cause concern is because as that verdict was right today there were legions of Americans who held their breath We as a country can not rest until that feeling of needing to hold our breath to ensure that the justice system works as it is supposed to no longer exist And so it's important that we do not conflate the notion of justice for the accountability Justice unfortunately for our arbor he's out of reach because he's no longer with us and can never be made whole But accountability is what we saw today in that courtroom And I submit that that's a good first step That civil rights attorney and former prosecutor Charles Coleman thank you for your time Thank you so much.

"The closing arguments today wrapped up kind of what stuck out with you What was a message to jurors Prosecutor Linda Dana koski delivered a very forceful rebuttal Some of the strongest language that she's really used talking about the credibility of some of the witnesses from the defense especially Travis mcmichael himself making the point that Travis mcmichael has changed his story from day one None of the mcmichaels or roddy Bryan used words like you know we were trying to effectuate a citizen's arrest that day in their first statements to police now that's not legally required They have formed a very compelling legal argument since acting rashly on the day in question I understand too there were some moments that really especially got to ahmaud Arbery's mother Yeah I think this mother more than a mods mother but she did in fact leave the courtroom during defense attorney Laura hopes statement yesterday She said basically over and over again that Ahmad Arbery was in fact committing burglary on the occasions that he had stopped by the House under construction and satilla shores And as she's describing that she sort of chooses to describe a mods long legs and long dirty toenails And it was a moment that like I said I think more than just a mod's mother heard and sort of felt was a line too far Any idea of the effect of those closing arguments when you think about situations like that and then you think about what the prosecution said today do you think any of that is mind changing see if you were a juror I think that for whoever wanted to hear a sympathetic argument for the mcmichaels and roddy Bryan That was there That was displayed So if anyone finds those defendants stories to be credible I mean we will see we'll see some acquittals potentially There is a lot of talk that especially for William roddy Bryan that murder charge may be hard to stick on Because of you know if you believe him he was late to the scene so to speak he did not know as he claims that the mcmichaels were armed and that he would even be part of this in the way that he was Your sense of what the feeling is in Brunswick if one or all of the defendants is acquitted That's a good question I don't think we've heard much from the family members about how would you feel if roddy Bryan were to get off and maybe the Michaels didn't What I know is that the prosecutor's argument in this case has been that all three elements from all three of the defendants were necessary in order to get to the place where ahmaud Arbery got shot What that means is that without roddy Bryant's truck sort of blocking the path and some say forcing ahmaud Arbery into a ditch off of the road without that he wouldn't have turned back around and headed in the direction where Travis mcmichael and his father were on Outside of the courtroom Melissa in Brunswick what was the mood today as those arguments wrapped up and the case went to the jury I think the mood today was very quiet I think there's a sense that everything that has been done and everything that could have been brought up has been brought up and you know we asked Arbery's family about did they feel like the prosecutor did her best work today And they felt confident that we're going to have a guilty verdict We shall see We shall W a belisa Hagen in Brunswick for us Lisa thank you so much for the update Thanks Jim And an update now on the traffic.
