"Right there next to each other Melvin Carter is his name I want to play is a little bit he was being interviewed today you kind of wind him up and then he goes and he said the protest did not start with George Floyd morning I think the first thing that's important to know is that none of this started in Minnesota and none of this started last week when Mr George Floyd was killed at the hands of law enforcement this has been going on definitely over the last decade as we've seen video after video after video of our time on the grass of African American men lose their lives this is been going on through my father's lifetime through his father's lifetime and very long before that and I think what we're seeing is outpouring of frustration of impatience and upgrades at people who know that this cannot continue who have tried who have looks our court system of looks our legal system hooks are police officers it's our police departments to end this on our own and I think we owe them a strong indication that we have the ability to hold those officers accountable we have the ability to just say as a country that we mourn George Floyd and he never should have died in that we have the ability as a country to move forward together in a way they can prevent this from happening again you're right we're having some really beautiful demonstrations in Minnesota I was outside the governor's residence yesterday I sat in the street alongside people who are just mourning his death and are committed to building something positive out of it I went over to the side of his desk where they're just people income being in community sharing free food sharing free water playing music talking to each other in healing ways chalking sidewalk art on the sidewalk there's really a lot of beauty going on unfortunately it's been overshadowed I think in the coverage by other people story can be destructive and channel the anger in a in a in a in a destructive manner our call for people is a piece we want to do I want to express this anger once expressed this our trauma in constructive ways but patience we're not asking people to wait slowly while we I am George we are all George we've seen these videos play out far too long it's this pattern has gone on in our country for far too long I think we should expect a rage I think we should stick around on about this is been going on for a long time in an earlier interview he also said he doesn't want to see the demonstration stop so here's the leader of Saint Paul Minnesota St I don't want to see the stop I want to see it go to continue I get his point but I mean for F. as a as as municipal leader come on you gotta get your community back operating again but Hey I guess maybe because of my attitude I don't think any of this is going to make a difference eight five five two nine five sixty six hundred let's talk to Kevin in Reno Nevada hello Kevin there you go good religious that idol which is my parents they are very proud of him for standing up there with the Bible as Christians you're not supposed to judge I'm not religious but I know the Bible I was raised and what I see on the world today is professed in the Bible because of the lack of Christianity and the Bible for him standing up with the Bible one of the church HM that got people tried to burn down I'm all for and that's just basically what I got sick why didn't he say something why did he explain why he was there yep yeah we have to a divisional is good enough what if every picture tells a story no because the visual turns out to where everybody reads a different story out of it unless you explain what it is that you're doing I mean it was a prime opportunity in my in my humble opinion it was a perfect opportunity for him to say exactly what you said I'm here to defend these churches we are here to defend our religious beliefs are are we're here to point to the Bible and say god is in charge anything like that but instead you thank cleared out the crowd and then he walks in stands there with the Bible and leaves what are you supposed to make of that updated every individual to decide what they want to make yeah and I I come up with a different opinion that's all I do is secular person they're not gonna be able to get out of it and the lady of the church knocking him at another person you were quoting from our capture whatever you know judge him on what he was doing out there all right okay they should be proud of him for standing out there with a Bible in his vision it looks like a photo op to me look what you want to a lot of the lady Laura the lady from Florida quoted his character very religiously Bible studies show I understand why that happened whether the photo op or not I can't say I'm not going to judge you for all right but in a secular world today I'm happy to see it we need the Bible and we need god we need to go back to Europe because look what happened I I don't disagree with you at all I just wish Kevin that he had given a little bit of a little bit of a lead on what it was that he was doing out there getting caught everybody by surprise everybody off guard the fact that they just shot this large group of people out of the way and then all of a sudden he shows up he stands with the bio I'd ever did it was very very surprising and confusing at the very least but you get the last word for the day Kevin I do appreciate.

"Police at times using tear gas to break up the protest the searing images confronted president trump following a trip to the Kennedy Space Center to view the lift off of the first U. S. space launch in a decade where he said he understood the pain felt by protesters we hear their pleas but what we are now seeing on the streets of our cities has nothing to do with justice or with pace the president blamed the violence on antifa and radical left groups and vowed to stop it CBS news has learned the idea of the president giving a national speech on the current unrest has been raised but whether it's an address from the oval office or a White House podium a top adviser says the president will continue to communicate with the American people Margaret Nicole Killian at the White House thanks we turn now to the mayor of Saint Paul Minnesota Melvin Carter good morning to you good morning thank you for having me on Mister mayor at the White House says that antifa a far left extremist group has been infiltrating American cities is that who's instigating the violence that your same thank you for having me on and I appreciate it we're seeing an enormous amount of rage and frustration and anger on the ground much of that is totally understandable as the gruesome images of Mr George Lloyd's murder has created a groundswell in our community of anger and frustration our our concern is that it seems very clear that while some of our folks are out there in the streets just crying out to be heard that they believe that George board should still be alive they're all for those officers should be held accountable for their actions and we have deep soul searching work to do as a nation to stop this pattern happening over and over and over again there also seems to be people in those crowds were very intense on sparking violence on breaking windows on starting fires and on trying to convince those folks to stay engaged in unlawful behavior we're hearing very clearly many of our historic advocates the folks were on the front lines after Philando Castille were killed folks who've been on the front lines of the black lives movement not only do they not know the folks who are right they are inciting violence but they're seeing people jump out of those grounds to break a window and then go run back right back and then behind those crowds it's very concerning for me do you have any idea who those instigators are we're working to get to the bottom of that right now our law enforcement partners our police department and I know our our our state law enforcement partners are working very hard to get to the bottom of exactly who that is and what exact agenda is behind that of the focus for us has been on our curfew to make sure that we're able to separate the full story here specifically to start trouble from those who need to be heard and the most disturbing disgusting piece about all of this is the fact that one of these posts are drowning out the voices that we need to be hearing we need to be having a conversation right now about how we stop this from happening we need to be having a conversation right now about how traumatic it is to our communities to see George boy killed in the gruesome way that he was how critical it is that we change the culture of policing for once and for all in our country I want to lose you are expressing their anger in it disgusting and destructive way are taking the focus away from what it should be while destroying our community institutions I want I want to ask you about that in the case of George Floyd according to the AP Minneapolis city records show that there were seventeen complaints that had been filed against the now former officer who is charged with having murdered at George Floyd sixteen complaints were closed with no discipline how is that permit it to happen that's I think that one of the most important questions here right here we're totally understanding the anger and the rage that people have our call today and moving forward into the future is for peace but not to be mistaken with patients we cannot be patient we cannot sit back and patiently wait while these things change on a slow and incremental basis the point the fact that you just pointed out says we have a lot more work to do and not just how we hire officers but how will we allow chiefs to fire officers when we see across the country officers are under investigation officers were proven to have acted in ways that does not meet our badges my father's a retired St Paul police departments operate St Paul police officer so I heard all of my life how important it is so little that bad stands and not not not damage it net damage tarnish its reputation and so what we've seen when officers fall far below our expectations a police chief it's happened in Saint Paul it's happened in Minneapolis it's happened across the country who tried to remove those officers would try to terminate them end up being forced to pull them back on the force through arbitration so our request routing number which is the take this energy which can which has consumed our nation this this this past week it's a fire that could destroy us but could bring us together in a way that we've never been together use it not to destroy our neighborhoods but said it sets a tear down those lost to tear down those legal precedents to tear down those police union contracts they make it so difficult to hold officers accountable for their actions all right Mr mayor thank you and good luck thank you very much next up is Benjamin crop he is the attorney representing the family of George Floyd he's in Jacksonville Florida good morning to you before we get to this good morning Margaret before we get to the specifics of this case I want to ask you about what's happening on the ground in Minnesota you said Friday that the protest should keep going at this point has what happened overshadowed the purpose of the of these protests Margaret I'm not a politician I'm the voice for equal justice for marginalized people in our society and I proclaim that these riot starter robin in cities all across America are ace out with signs of righteous anger bad Americans especially black Americans are Feelin with the death of George fluoride but not just George Flores he's just the latest tipping point in a string of killings of unarmed black people at the has or should I say in his case the need of the police and many of late bid officials have to understand that it's not these are protesters that started these fires across America it is police brutality and a racist criminal justice system and the only thing that can put out these fighters are police accountability and equal justice the floor family not agree with violence just like Dr king we don't try to justify it but we know that what is happening is coming from people been an heard far too long and they're just tired and they're saying that we are Americans too we won't equal justice we want the constitution we don't want to be policed and then everybody else protectiveness serve we too are Americans deaths which you're here and in C. and all across America understood okay let me ask you about that George Floyd in this particular case the officer Derek shop and was in charge of manslaughter and second degree murder in the third the implication is that he didn't intend to kill George Floyd do you have evidence that this was premeditated well certainly based on.

"Later on in the hour as a New York times article although actually zeros in on people a few people here in Minnesota but New York times article trumps Iran strategy may cost him twenty twenty election this is the it this is what I call you the anatomy of a truck hit piece it really it it's it's what what what will break the whole thing down coming up but it really is when you spend time with an article like this right you spend some time with it did you actually get into the meat of it it is cold here right now that it wouldn't be already just based off the headline but it's clear the tactic in which they use to formulate vis hit pieces against trump and they really are pure they're pure flights of fancy it's your fabrication right on their part to try to push forward some idea or promise that they landed on with a headline that they wanted to you they just want to inject it into the zeitgeist yes right there's one who injected the side it's like inception you know they just want they want to get to like our fourth level of dreams we're all right around on snow mobiles or something and instead of down and stroke or had to go Iran might cost trump the election and then they go to they get out yeah he was we've planted the seed will pull back the curtain on this ruse coming up but shortly in the meantime from the Star Tribune as well it's a horrible Republican state legislature has resigned as as Disney has registered as a lobbyist junk just one month after leaving office parking fresh calls to update Minnesota's conflict of interest laws but he's not a lawmaker anymore so where is the conflict of interest right not like that representative her who works with Saint Paul mayor Melvin Carter and it helped it win helped when it came to crafting the fifty dollar or you know have your baby born in Saint Paul he said they moved forward on and then worked on legislature to have that's a conflict of interest right and still works in the legislature right right right or win during a prominent DHEA Fellers get hired by the university of Minnesota thanks to grant from the McKnight foundation whose goal it is is to push climate change and climate change legislation so they hire a lawmaker to basically sit in an office for a few hours a week at the university get paid like fifty thousand dollars and then he goes and conveniently pushes for the legislation that the McKnight foundation is advocating for it's almost like that there was just do that well because it in the end just to suck on the taxpayer T. zero us and they're mad because he's a Republican and I wish there was a harm that we could use you know maybe I'll tell come up with one maybe a term like double standard in maybe we should use a term like that because there is a definite double standard when it comes to the left and what their politicians are allowed to do and the right and what their former politicians are apparently allowed to do needs Austin resigned his seat in December citing a desire to spend time with his family in pursuit pursued private sector work following a recent surgery for a life long heart condition on Friday you filed for paperwork to represent to clients the Minnesota consortium for citizens with disabilities and the South Dakota based Sanford health as a paid lobbyist for the Jacobson log group experts on ethics in government experts see the quick transition from public official paid lobbyist it can raise questions about access and give money to interest a leg up in influencing legislation for fall moneyed interests always have a leg up in influencing legislation that's called called lobbying for they do but there's a question about access it's no different than anybody else that day you know with the the the these these lobbyists that have been down there the capital even doing this for years and years and years and years they're not hurting for access by the way someone should tell the Star Tribune there is a typo here it's it experts on ethics they met activists it was it was it was a it was a typo anastassiades belladonna Carrera is the executive director of common cause Minnesota totally non partisan by the way eleven point this out this is the only sort of reference here to any kind of controversy one individual who works for an activist organization coming because Minnesota add a comment to make about Nick zero was that was it that's the only got that that's that's the only big issue here doing nothing with my fingers belladonna Carrera said this the problem is when you have special interest being able to navigate environments and spaces and being able to leverage relationships at every day Minnesotans don't have this is supposed to be a process for the people this is not supposed to be a process for special interests okay so we we we would be basically we need to I guess other states have these revolving door laws statutes that set up mandatory waiting or cooling off period for lawmakers so Nick or anybody else is just opposed to go and sit you know go work at Costco you know right Sir get a job in a new book all the way we got along I got only about ninety to get over to my ninety day non compete with something I will take their concerns over conflict of interest and and access and this revolving door knobs I'll take those concerns seriously the moment they start calling out every DHEA Feller who when they lose an election find themselves placed on the board of a nonprofit with taxpayer money getting funneled to them where they're not expected to do any work they just sit there and collected check until suddenly they're ready to run for office again or every GFL or who gets hired on a grant from the McKnight foundation to go sit in an office at the U. for a couple months for fifty grand and then push the legislation that the McKnight foundation once pushed as soon as they start taking those things seriously then I'll start worrying about this revolving door of legislator lobbyist he's not a legislator anymore the rules of the house no longer apply to Nick Xerox zero us is said in a brief interview yesterday he doesn't have any concerns about the new role which expects to focus on influencing GOP lawmakers in the Senate I'm proud to represent the clients that I have with the Jacobs law group and I hope to work really hard to represent them here at the capitol threaten to come back it's he has got a problem with this final fight on for off of you know just come back again della Donna Carrera whatever Nick just can't win they don't like it when he's a lot when he's a lawmaker that only companies lobby is come on all right let's let's start down this road now we'll get to a part of this year so New York times this was in the Star Tribune this morning almost exactly four years ago the article starts Donald Trump touch down at an airport hangar here delivered a donation to a group to provide service dogs to veterans when he came to to submit to Minneapolis now before inviting a few kids to run around his Boeing seven fifty seven criticize the wars in the Middle East that many local families had sent their sons and daughters to fight in what is taught here sub you know based off the premise of this if this opening paragraph of this article and what happened with Iran I'm sorry if you've got a choice of roads to take the obvious road here and again the side of this is rich coming from somebody who supports president on top of the obvious road here would be to talk about how he avoided getting us into war with Iran you know Iran cry even even I ran the crossing a vocalized in specific redline in killing an American to which we went in targeted a murder arrest state sponsored terrorist then they saw missiles at us and when trump do he could have easily I mean we all it was a fifty fifty chance man we all sat back and waited and I thought that he was going to respond to what a prison down from do he didn't drag us into a war with Iran and so far that's yielded net benefits especially when you look at the evil and rest of the people in Iran right now over their own leadership you can take that Avenue or you can take the Avenue to the city it did in trying to spend this that this strategy that didn't get us into war right is going to adversely affect him in twenty twenty six five one nine eight nine five eight
