She's GonNa have to do a complete rebuild and she told me you know I've lost everything and I. Know but we're GONNA. Be With you as you rebuild. It's the no I. I was just trying to say I. Can I have time to help with the fundraising efforts? For other businesses as well, and that type of spirit of in the way that people are just taking care of each other people who wouldn't really have a way of even knowing each other. Otherwise, that's any feels like something new that the energy that exists across our country I'm very convinced that this energy that we've seen this this. This fiery spirit across our country I should say I. Think is the same energy that built America. It's the same energy that abolished slavery. It's the same energy that Civil Rights and I think channeled healthily channel productively. Energy. That's GonNa make this a fundamentally different moment and willing relieve our children from having to having to live through these cycles, and over and over again in the way that we've had to I see that and I have a lot of hope for that, and of course we have presidential election coming up. We have elections for the Senate and House. I have A. Good feeling about the direction that's going on I have a good feeling that there will be concrete steps here also saw that at least the Republicans on police reform actually gave lip service that was an improvement. They basically putting legislation together in the Senate. That kind of has a lot of the same ideas they just. Aren't actually funded or mandatory. I tell you that was really disappointing. Senator Scott started that press conference by saying. We see you and we hear you, and then he the. There was very little in the rest of that announcement. To make I would imagine the the folks who have just been called out into the streets fighting injustice. feel seen heard out. This feels like like the hunger games. Like Americans are being are losing their lives in ways that are unjust in ways that are just brutal and horrify an are on television for God's sake and what we're hearing from the capital is oh. We're going to study it and we're GONNA. Create a commission and we're going to create incentives for for jurisdictions across the country to to to voluntarily Sign up to stop doing this, and that's just not enough. I mean they couldn't even find the fortitude to ban chokehold. Like at some level, we just are George Floyd. To Death for eight minutes and forty six seconds like it'd be nice to just hear from Washington. DC, you know what you can't do that just period, if not, we're not going to tie it to incentives or grants. We're just going to say you can't do that and they couldn't bring themselves to do that. That's hurtful. I don't imagine that. That that's going to be satisfactory for the people who are demanding just a fundamental restructuring of the way, the relationship between law, enforcement and community works. Melvin I know your time is incredibly valuable, but you know. I just saw gratified to see. How regular dealing and I just love your folks and you know I don't want to proud of you. That's kind of stupid. But. I'm proud of you because we have a mayor. Saint Paul with great. You're killing it man.

"At, The Times awesome you know police reports of people who've been sort of drive stunned by tasers because they were the author wanted them to stand up, but they didn't want him to sit down or come this way, and they didn't and drive stun and people like cattle, and that's something that we have written out of our policies at this point, but at work with the police department to to come up with a fundamentally new approach by the way at the time, our training materials on how and win and where to use them. was written by a company called international of which. Struck me as a little circular while they know tasers say that. let's talk about police reform writ large people are very aware that the Minneapolis city. Council has voted to defined the police department in Minneapolis. We don't know exactly what that means. You are obviously thinking a lot about this. What is? Approach on police reform. Our approach is a couple of things one. We've seen just in the last couple of weeks. The sort of paradox of policing right we've seen some of the worst policing humanly possible on video between Saint George Floyd's horrific, and like hauntingly casual murder, while his officer has his hand in his pocket. We've seen a seventy five year. Old Man just pushed for no reason in a way that he sustained brain damage because of it. It We've seen you know a young man shot in the back by police in just we've seen all these all these videos, and all these just horrific examples at the same time, though we've seen our officers a step forward to try to protect some of the neighborhoods that have been targeted for you know the civil unrest I don't I don't I. Don't call them demonstrations or protests, because those aren't protests we've seen. Some really amazingly beautiful peaceful protests across our country, but then we've also seen people seemingly just came out to break a window and start a fire a Saint Paul. Actually in in that. It, any destruction was terrible, but Saint Paul got off better I mean obviously. This was the Minneapolis Police Department. But you had your police out there on the first night. Am I right, oh! Yeah! We had them out there the whole that whole week. I mean it was a it was a scary week. Oh and that's what I'm saying is like we needed them, and we relied on them. We relied on them to Asher. Peaceful protests and peaceful marches in front of the Capitol, in front of the governor's residence down the freeway down some of our major streets in our city, so we relied on them, and that's the paradox. We need officers who? Understand and respect, our humanity and our lives are on the line and praying that. When we call for help,.

At some point I, don't know how to separate. You know that part of who I am versus every other part of who I am I I grew up. You know praying for the safety of our officers. I grew up in sending dad to work. He would work midnights and. We'd have to tiptoe around the house during the day because he'd be trying to get his sleep between shifts and you know we we've come home from school and turn on the TV and see some horrifying news report. Is something going on in the city and the man hunt is gone, and you know we be you know. The Dad was on the on the on the search and you know be hoping for his safety and praying for his, so I remember those things very well I. Remember you know he was. He was went on the department with a class of African American officers who went on together. A court order required them to required us. To desegregate our police department.

This morning is CNN. Crew were released from custody after being arrested while just doing their job reporting the story in Minneapolis. Take a look at the moment. The correspondent Omar Jimenez is confronted by the police and led away. In a press conference today, Minnesota's governor Tim Watts apologized for the rest of the crew and spoke about the need to stay focused on the structural issues at play in his State. We cannot have the looting and the recklessness that went on. We cannot have it because we can't function in society and I refuse to have it take away the attention of the stain that we need to be working on is what happened with those fundamental institutional racism that allows a man to be held down in broad daylight, and thank God a young person at a camera to video it because there's not a person here or listening today. That wonders how many times that cameras not there. These are questions. These are things that have been brewing in this country for four hundred years. Tough questions indeed, the governor also appealed for calm, and for violent protests to end floyd death of course adds to long standing anger over police killings of unarmed black-americans once again, raising the painful questions of institutional racism, policing an inequality in the United States with me to discuss all of this is the Reverend Jesse Jackson here's one of America's foremost civil rights activists, and he's joining me now from Chicago having been in Minneapolis Reverend Jackson welcome to the program.

You heard the governor, saying and appealing for calm, and really really criticizing what he called. The you know the people who were harming the community harming the memory of George Floyd harming the ability to keep the focus on what happened to him rather than the focus on the burning buildings I wanna I wanna know what you make of the protests, because I do know that you called for more protests until there was justice, but Do you think that the protests also led?

"Memory of George Floyd and I won't let that happen. When the looting starts, the shooting starts. That's a comment. The Senator Cory. Booker called racist. The governor of Minnesota Governor Walls, and the governor of Maryland Governor Hogan suggested that the president's language was inflammatory. The president had also invoked vicious dogs and ominous weapons, being wielded against protestors outside the White House. Do, you think messages that are helping to unite the country and calm fears. Well I think what the president said. He and he spoke about that tweet when some of those. Comments were made, and he said look I don't want. Lose trying to deescalate. He didn't. He didn't want violence. He's trying to stop the violence that we saw that took place overnight. And and you know the message to and it's a strong message that we want law and order in this country. We want peaceful protesters who have real concerns about brutality and racism they. They need to be able to go to the city hall. They need to be able to petition the government and let their voices be heard, and they can't be hijacked by these. These left-wing Antifa militants who are burning down primarily communities in the in the African American sections, and and the Hispanic sections are city, were immigrants and hardworking. Folks are trying to get A. A leg up and they're having. Their businesses burned up by these radicals. Many of whom are imported from Seattle or Portland or who knows where they come from across state lines, and they're hurting our people, so the presence can take a strong stand for law and order right I can tell you I was with the president on Air Force One. We watched that that horrific. Horrific video. What happened to George Floyd He was moved by it. He was disturbed by it. It's it's it's. It's awful and and low key stands with the family, and we want to get to the bottom. That's why he ordered the FBI and the DOJ civil rights division to get involved immediately I. We're going to get to the bottom of what happened there. But. He's out there. Also talking about how protesters outside the White House, the secret service is going to sick vicious dogs on them. Has Ominous Weapons. How the young secret service agents want to get out there for practice. This is not calming language. I don't doubt that president trump was disturbed by the video of George Floyd. It's horrific and obscene frankly. But the president his his passion has not been about the way. You're speaking this morning about what happened to George Floyd and the indecency of that, but about the protesters and the violence that some of them are causing and we have. Government officials. Democrats and Republicans saying that the president is using inflammatory language well I think that passion comes from the fact that we've got great law enforcement officers, not not the few bad apples like the officer that that killed George Floyd, but we got a few bad apples that have given given law enforcement a a bad name. Ninety nine point, nine percent of these guys are heroes. They're the ones who are running towards the danger who are saving lives and a bunch of them were outside the White House last night park policemen on. On horseback and Uniform Secret Service officers who are having bricks thrown out of There was a Federal Protective Service Officer and Oakland Patrick Underwood who was shot and killed and our hearts go out and his family. Just like we do with George Floyd's family, so so these these these protesters in the presence very, you know passionate. The legitimate protesters have a right to be on the streets and the present defence that, but the but these antifa radical militants who are using military tactics to kill and hurt and and and may more police officers. They need to be stopped and I think that's where the passion from the president is coming. Okay I mean just for the record. He made the comment about the ominous weapons and the vicious dogs before last night, but let me ask you a question because you're talking about these. George was killed. Patrick Hunter was killed before last year as well. Right, but he was talking about when he talked about vicious dogs and ominous weapons that was at the White House but I i. want to ask you about the police because George Floyd. Is hardly the only unarmed black American killed recently by police. Do you think systemic racism is a problem and law enforcement agencies in the United States? No I don't think there's systemic racism. I think ninety nine point nine percent of our law. Enforcement officers are great Americans, and and many of them are African, American Hispanic Asian. They're working in the toughest neighborhoods. They've got the hardest jobs to do in this country and I think they're amazing. Great Americans and they're my heroes, but you know what there are some bad apples in there and they're you know there are some some bad cops that are racist and. And and they're cops, or you know. Maybe you don't have the right training, and there's some that are just just bad cops, and and they need to be rooted out because there's a few bad apples that are giving law enforcement, a terrible name and and there there's no doubt that there's some racist racist police I. Think they're the minority? I, think they're the few bad apples and and we need to root them out, but I'll tell you I. I'm just so proud of the way our law enforcement professionals are protecting us and and handling the situation with with restraint, and and We we love our law enforcement, but you know we do have to get rid of those that are light like the dirty cop. That killed George Floyd I mean. We need to get rid of those people by the way where the local prosecutors have. Where was the police commissioner? That guy? Apparently I'm told. He had a long record of this sort of conduct a good question. It's a good. It's a good question I'd like to have you back to talk more about the issue of systemic racism versus bad apples because I. think that there's a lot we can talk about there, but I do want to ask you about the president's announcement to terminate the united. States relationship with the World Health Organization the President has repeatedly criticized the Chinese government saying officials ignored their reporting obligations to the World Health. And pressure the wj to mislead the world, but I have to say who leaders claim they were. They were listening to Chinese authorities, and that's what they were doing. which is by the way exactly what president trump was doing? During that same time January and February take take a listen. You trust that we're going to know everything. We need to know from China.

"The governor of your state says that your city is on fire. The National Guard has already been deployed in Minnesota, and now the Secretary Secretary of defense is offering military support to help. Keep the peace in Minnesota. Will that be necessary? You know you're. You're right right in Saint? Paul, we've had over one hundred and seventy businesses of damage. We are seeing in Saint Paul and obviously around the country Jake this level of rage and anger that frankly is legitimate as we see this just horrific video of George Floyd being just suffocated to death the the fact that we have to say if I tell you about the unarmed African American man who pleaded for his breath as he was killed by law, enforcement I have to clarify for. For you whether I'm talking about George Floyd or Eric Garner that speaks volumes about the state of where we are in America right now. The rage out there is predictable. It's understandable and it's legitimate. Unfortunately, it's being expressed right now over the past week. In ways that are destructive and unacceptable, we are working with our law enforcement partners. We are working with our community partners to not only restore a sense of order right now, but to build a sense of confidence that we are building our way towards a better future. Do you need the military help. That secretary of defense aspirations offering. You? Know Look I'll tell you this. The one thing that would help us ease some of this rage. Ease some of this. In Our community right now is some level of assurance, and this is what makes all of this so much worse as we know that George Floyd is not just a single solitary name, but he's a man. He's an unarmed American man who unfortunately has had his name this past week. Join a list of names that is just far too long and I WANNA be clear. You know this this. Killing a did not start ten years ago when we started seeing these videos. The only thing that's changed as all of a sudden we have cameras everywhere. So this is the same thing that my grandfather and my parents and my aunts and uncles have told me about a for generations and the thing that I think would help us. more than military support is some assurance across our country that we possess a legal judicial system that has the capacity and the capability to hold someone accountable. When something this blatant something, this disgusting something this well documented happens in plain view for all of us to see. I think it was well. Smith said. Racism isn't getting worse. It's getting filmed. Speaking about accountability. The Hennepin County prosecutor has charged former Minneapolis police officer Derek with degree. Murder prosecutors are considering charges for the other three officers based on what you've seen. Do you think those other three officers should be facing charges as well including potentially murder? Jake, my father's retired Saint Paul, police officer. We're walking through a local store. When I was a child one day, somebody was caught for shoplifting in. He went to help and I said Dad. Why don't you just tell them? You're not on duty right now? And he looked at me and laughed and said I'm always on duty. Officers have a duty to intervene. They have a duty. We all know that the basic training of police officer is to help. Help when people are hurt, so in all of humanity can look at this video and say that's disgusting. That's unacceptable and yet somehow we have four officers in the video. who three of whom et Cetera there and either held hold Mr Floyd down or stood guard over the scene while it happened. That is a incredible insult to humanity. It's an insult to our officers are Saint Paul officers are are are are just a distraught over this as As I am, and it points to a unmistakably. If it was just one, you might be able to say rogue officer, Bad Apple, but when you have four officers in the video, all responsible for the taking George Floyd's life, it points to a culture, normalized a culture that's accepted that's been accepted, and that cannot be a part of our culture moving forward a what we're calling for right now is peace. We're asking our folks to protest peacefully to. To scream from the top of their lungs that this can never happen again and not just one, but all four. Those officers must be held accountable we're. We're not so. We are asking for peace. We're not asking for patients I'm not asking people to wait patiently while we slowly stem the tide of unarmed, black men killed by police. You know as an African American man in America I know very well that too often never really means later. But this energy that we've seen consumer country this week is like an atomic energy it could either be. It could be the tears apart at the seams or bring us together, frankly in a way that we've never been together, so we're not asking for patients were asking. Our young people were asking everybody who's outraged by that to channel this impatience to channel this frustration to channel this anger toward not destroying our communities, but destroying laws destroying the legal precedents destroying the police union contracts destroying a all of those horses that make its own difficult to hold someone accountable when the loss when when one of our African. American men's life is taken in an unacceptable way. All Right Mayor Carter, thank you so for your time today and we're praying for peace for the people of Minneapolis. Saint Paul as well. Thank you so much. Seventy people were arrested in Atlanta last night with the city under curfew as Georgia's governor activates the National Guard statewide on Friday, Atlanta Mayor Kisha. Lance bottoms made an emotional plea to the residents of her city. What I see happening on the streets of Atlanta, is not Atlanta. This is not a protest. This is not in a spirit of Martin. Luther King Junior. This is chaos. Mayor Bottoms joins me now. Thanks so much for joining us. Mayor Bottoms on Friday night. You talked about a lot of things including raising four black children in America today. How do you talk to your kids about what we've seen this week? It's difficult. My kids have so many motions like so many of us have it ranges from anger to fear. And the thing that I tell my children is what a-. What I have to remind myself is that we were better than. And this country Has faced the ugliness of racism for over four hundred years. But what I know is that as a people and as a country we can do better. We will do better and. Know I'm reminded of the words of Audrey. Lord Revolution is not a one time event. And so. I appreciate it what what Melvin just said it's. We're asking for for peace, not patients. President trump has been tweeting about the violent protests across the country. He vowed to step in and use quote, the unlimited power of our military, and he suggested the local officials should quote get tough and fight.

Floyd family attorney says charge against officer should be upgraded to first-degree murder

"Well and I've been talking for days now about the the tragedy of the death of George Floyd at the knee of a police officer who held him down for eight minutes shot by the neck and he eventually lost his life and that man has now been charged with third degree murder second degree voluntary met involuntary manslaughter people are looking for more even possibly first degree murder I was listening to the the Florida attorney today talking on national television and discussing a number of things concerning the case and how they believe there may be some well premeditated aspects of this case but the reason I'm bringing it up on the sports show we'll get to that in a moment I have Greg dial is who is on the disk gets to the pitch for news line who happens to be an attorney at law and I I think it's very important that we don't lose sight of the story in Pittsburgh last night tragically we felt some of that violence that continues to spread from coast to coast am tomorrow night in my program I'll be talking in pretty much opening the phone lines between eight and ten and giving you a chance to voice your opinion and we all will on KDKA radio over the next couple of days but the thing that I really took away without watching Margaret o'brien talked to the mayor of Atlanta of course as I mentioned talk to the attorney for the Floyd family talking to other people like Melvin Carter the mayor of J. Paul Minneapolis if this is a story that is polarize our nation especially in the midst of this pandemic but when you think of calling Capranica those are people of color in sports and what they have done to stand up for the black race and minorities many NBA players were actually involved in these protests some of them returned to Atlanta where they grew up to to speak their mind and be a part of a peaceful protest that obviously turn very the ugly with a lot of violence there's been discussion of anarchist a white supremacist if you will who have rolled into various towns to ignite these fires literally and these horrible Ryan said for the most part many people but we're going to be peaceful protest so Greg the reason I want to talk to you as far as athletes this is nothing new I've seen Jim Brown and many others Kareem Abdul Jabbar Mohammed Ali obviously spent most of his life fighting for civil rights this is just such a very bad time in our country's history my question to you is when you think about what happened to Mr Floyd and there are many great law enforcement officers out there but one thing is for sure when you're dealing with many athletes many of them of the black race this is a concern into something has been a part of the sports world is a part of all of our lives and I think that we owe at least a segment or two because of your legal background and your sports background to talk about it and again no one ever thought that this would be the story that would kind of replace this pandemic even in the midst of the pandemic and it's a shame that it's come down to this but there's no way that you go anywhere right now in this region or any television station running radio station or a newspaper you pick up that this is not the story good morning good morning robin unfortunately it's really not a good morning I I wish there were different things to talk about generally enough for you guys you know I usually come in with some happy new year for you in the mornings but it it just feels like there's something gone wrong that the world is off its axis or something but but there's just seems to be more more bad news each and every day but we'll get through this we we are hearty people and we'll figure it out and and we actually you man elements need to be able to to figure out ways to pass these things out but it's very difficult and it's hard for for me a white man to to be able to express a what's the the people of all colors are experiencing in our country right now because I I'm not listed but but I do have your clients and friends said no we can't have a conversation about and try to figure out ways whereas the people that we can go forward and and you know put all these differences a lady somehow some way but but boy it's really just off for a sound doesn't seem like there's any kind of logical or reasonable way to proceed because the patch things up you know as I was watching the face the nation program I must tell you I really was torn whether or not I should bring it up again after spending the majority of the last couple of days talking about it and will over the next couple of days despite us having a June second primary it will be the topic of conversation during the open talk portion of my programs right through Wednesday night in some of the folks that I have scheduled for political purposes are perfect because a lot of folks are tying the political aspect as far as from local government to state government a national government it's all leading up to this June second primary so the timing is there but I just wish it was something else that I was discussing but I said to myself you know listen I've always been one to try to take the high road and have a peaceful outlook and not really try to stir the pot but this is something there's really struck me personally because of watching that video and obviously having many people in law enforcement of color and yes of course many of them are dear friends I understand that they too are frustrated because of what happened in Minnesota with this police officer all I can say is this growing up even in the turbulent civil rights era of the sixties the one thing that always brought people together especially on the playground in the neighborhood was sports and then I saw some of my sports heroes like Muhammad Ali my all time favorite also Jim Brown in there another scream of dole Jabbar who always stood up and spoke out but I must tell you it's just so sad to see something that is happening of this nature in twenty twenty that I experienced during the height of the civil rights watching the nightly news with Walter Cronkite seeing the black and white film footage of the fire hoses turned on young black teenagers attack dogs police dogs if you will that were put into that mode because that was the command they were given it's just hard to believe that we have evolved so many decades later we're sports's evolve where in the world now without sports we lost a hundred thousand people in this country and counting when it comes to the pandemic and this is on the front page and no matter how you look at it is just flat out sad to think we have not come that very far since Martin Luther king walked this earth and lost his life because of his fight for civil rights it almost makes you feel like robbery we haven't come anywhere you know we we're we're right back to where we started in the sixties in it is so sad to to have to be in a situation where where in hello to our address like that the only way they can can express those the end it is these were mostly protests that were peaceful in and well deserved and then they turn crazy because of outside sources apparently and no one knows for sure but it seems that that especially in Pittsburgh this was not something that was driven by the peaceful protests that started out in that that's bigger shame of it all in and I'm hoping that there is some way to find these people that came in there that that tried to incite the violence to to get to a point where we can catch them and get them off the street there's no place in our world you know Greg and I don't know if it's because when we were raised in one of the things that I've been stressing to my audience and I have been through it all I've been through rose Jonny Gammage obviously going back to the nineties up with Rodney king I have been on the radio talking about all of these things and how tragic they are and hoping that they would stop just like the school shootings that I go back to nineteen ninety nine covering the Columbine case the thing that I have come to believe it is all about what you can do teaching your children about how this is not how you act do not treat people of a different color race nationality religious belief other than how you want to be treated that's the way you and I were both raised in I'm not looking for us to get a gold star or a Pat on the back but you have to know is I know the way we grew up weather was on the basketball court or the classroom or just spending it time at home eating something that our parents prepare force and you looked across the table many times that person was black and I never looked at it any other way than just that a friend of mine enjoying a moment whether it be in school in that classroom or on that basketball court or on that of field of athletics and I think we become so isolated not just because of this pandemic but the world that we live in today that people have lost sight as far as what they need to do and how they should be raising their children and more importantly something that I've always thought was healthy a healthy mix of people from all walks of life we we need to get back to that if we want to survive this and move forward and be a healthier nation not so much for you and I but for your daughters and my children and generations to come yeah I can't agree with you more there has to be a way to figure this out there investors are seemingly every time an issue or an engine that comes up like this we often dialogue began everybody just kind of goes back to their quarters in as if it were a boxing ring what okay yeah we had these conversations but nothing gets accomplished you're nothing gets fixed and then you have another incident where were some law enforcement in the Milan in an attack on law enforcement you know they they're there for the better part of on everyone and probably more than ninety nine point nine percent all law enforcement officers in doing the right thing but the house in in increments and issue like this that seemingly are happening in the weekly Robinson it is these issues come up or that they go along if someone acts in a way
