Officers sheriff's deputies federal law enforcement guys and right now they simply don't feel the support from politicians Which the communities are listening to their political leaders and that's driving the community to know armed. Support the police and so the guy's really all they have is each other right now. They don't have a community that they're serving. That supports them. They don't have policymakers who also have power of the purse and the ability to fund or de-fund police And so these guys don't feel supporting really all you have is each other And like i talked about earlier that drive to continue to keep people safe and they know what they're doing is honorable work and so that's all we have right now.

"Department of Transportation and Metropolitan Police Department. Homo news, 1000 and FM 97 7. Welcome back to this special edition of the coma politic cast as we continue to examine the idea of minority rule. I'm Jeff Pooja, and we've looked at how minority rule has been part of this country's government since its inception. But how is it manifesting itself today? Most obvious examples are the U. S. Senate and the Supreme Court. Both institutions, one could argue are acting in a counter majoritarian way. I'm joined once again by Mark Allen Smith, professor of political science at the University of Washington, who says that could lead to people losing faith in the workings of government. I think Chief Justice John Roberts is worried about that very problem. On D he seems to be concerned about the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and not wanting to step too far out of line with what's going to be acceptable to the public at large. There's a chance, especially Jamie Cockney Barrett joining the court that you know, he just might get out. Voted on some of those things so we could see a beam or assertive. Supreme Court than we've seen in a very long time. They could do things like you mentioned in the areas of abortion or gay rights and other things that would be unpopular in large in large chunks of the country. You have born more power shifting towards this minority rule this this minority opinion. That doesn't seem sustainable at all. In some ways, it's sustainable. As long as that's the system we have in place. And how what does it take to reform that system? Well, constitutional amendments would do it. But if you don't have the power to even take control of Congress How do you get to your 22 3rd majority in any chamber plus three quarters of states. You can have that that minority rule and it people might not like some of the outcomes, but they don't necessarily have a mechanism for changing that. I guess the more fundamental level doesn't that's unrest that dissatisfaction with the government. Lead to the potential of revolution. I mean, it did in the American revolution. It could leave there. I think we need to be careful to assume that because we have a certain kind of system right now that will continue indefinitely. Yeah, sure. Monica political scientists, among other people has has has studied this. And if you look at some basic measures, like you know how many how many people would support military rule of the country? I usually a really tiny sliver. But now it's up to something like 15 15%, which still doesn't sound like that much, but it's starting from a very low low base. More recent polling evidence show that I think was about 35% of both Democrats and Republicans said that it was legitimate to use political violence. I think I would say even five years ago. If you were to talk in this much about political violence in this country, I would say yeah, that's that's just not something that zoo really done here. But I wouldn't say that now, you know with like that the current situation of President Trump cleaning massive election fraud. Some of his supporters could well march on state capitals. And you could imagine Cem Cem Cem classes there. It hasn't happened yet, but I think it's It's a realistic possibility. Now, in a way that it wasn't just a few years ago. What changed? I think it's just the level of polarization the level of almost hatred in some cases, for quote the other side kind of, Ah, inability to see the other other side is having you know, legitimate points of their own or or means by which they arrived at their their positions. I'm kind of sensing that they you know they're not like you. They don't belong here. And you know, how do you get along in a diverse country when lots of people think that the people on the other side are reprehensible and pale. Well, those kind of situations we might say, hey, if that other side's doing some loud, crazy things. Well, maybe we might have to use some violence to keep them in check. But I think as the polarization grows on Daz, the country gets segmented in all kinds of ways, including in their their media consumption. It's the case right now that I think about Three quarters of Republicans think that the election was stolen that it it was a result of a fraud. That's that's a really high number, and it's not hard to hard to imagine in that kind of situation, lots of things happening in the Morello of political violence. Do you fear for the future of the country? Do because you know it's it's a large and diverse society. You know, it's easier for your hunter gatherer Society of 50 People, 100 people where everybody knows each other and most of my related but 330 million people, different religions, ethnicities races. Your values, lots of other lines of lines of division and in a situation where there's kind of a lack of a sense of shared mission. I think the Cold War paradoxically helped to stand potential conflict internally. Because there was that external enemy there was a Soviet Union. So there was kind of sense that Hey, we're all Americans. And then we have our We have our divides. But you know, there's something of value in this country. We have it. We have a tradition. We have a constitution We have We have We have a shared shared history on Therefore we're kind of all all in it together. Nowadays, you know, 30 30 years post post Cold War. I just don't since that perception of a shared destiny that there's something that connects all Americans to each other, other than like the random fact that you have to be born on this particular land area and so without something to unify us just becomes tribal warfare. Liking that external enemy people find enemies within the country. On. That's not a pretty picture. We have to take a quick break. But when we come back, we'll talk with two people who have had to deal with the challenges and pitfalls of.

"It's 5 41. This past week, we learned that D C police chief Peter Newsom is leaving the nation's capital to lead the Prince William County, Virginia Police Department. He'll be doing that starting in February, the chief gave his first interview following them in the the announcements to W T O peace. Meghan Clarity. Are you under any pressure to leave? There's any reason for you to leave? Well, I'll tell you, you know, on December 19th will be 31 years with the Metropolitan Police Department. I've enjoyed every single day here, you know, Sooner or later I had to leave. And when this opportunity came came around, I just took advantage of it. W T O Peace. Dimitry sodas talk with Meghan Chlorate E about the chief's reaction that you know I can't tell you how excited I am. He told me that you know, it's been relatively a few months process he applied for the job. In Prince William County and the Board of Supervisors decided he was the man for the job after a nationwide search of 50 applicants, But you know, it's hard to say because while the mayor mayor Muriel Bowser has always stood behind her chief of police throughout the summer, as there were calls for his resignation following the BLM protests and calls to defund the police Lucian was really at odds with the D C council taking issues with some of the reforms they passed. You'll remember. They cut the department's expected budget increase, and he told police officers the council completely abandoned them. He called it a knee jerk reaction to defund the police. So there were you know tensions between he and the committee for the Judiciary, For example, Charles Allen and with former council member David Cross. Oh, But as far as the mayor and the chief, as far as we know, everything was fine. So I wonder if it's e mean if we can only speculate, but he seemed to make it sound like he was ready for the change. Prince William County has become a lot more diverse than it was 10 and certainly 20 years ago, and there may be a lot there for a big city police chief to sink his teeth into, But there's nothing like being part of the team here in the nation's capital. At times you called upon by very powerful people, the president himself That kind of thing, And I'm not sure there's that kind of visibility in Prince William. I would agree with you. He told me. I said, Well, this is going to be different. And he said, You know, things in DC happened 100 Miles an hour. You deal with a lot of issues. He's been with the department, the D. C police department since 1989 so he was 31 years under his belt. He was promoted rather early by chief Charles Ramsey in the nineties to oversee The overhaul of the department following on the high number of deadly shootings by officers back in the nineties. And then, when he was promoted to interim chief in 2016, he decided, you know, let's focus on community policing. Really focusing on removing illegal guns from the streets, But it's worth mentioning, you know? Well, there were a few years where he saw some progress in that area. Homicides this year are up 20% of what they were last year. So he is leaving D c not in a good state, necessarily, as far as the homicide rate goes over all crimes and better in a better position, But D C you know you have 100 years, nearly 800,000 residents. In Prince William County, Virginia. You have half that. So, Yeah, it's going to be a very different jobs going to be, you know, he says he'll bring exit his experience to it, but I can't imagine there's a lot of similarities. That's wt O peacemaking, clarity talking.

Also known as broken oath, policing, and that is we don't enforce the law against violent lefties because the Democrat mayor and the City Council will lynch the police if they engage an actual policing as a verb that's not allowed. They don't want. They don't want that now with that, said I need to get underwear next topic, and I know everybody wants to talk about the big Trump rally, and everybody was there. 1.7 billion people were there for it and and a bunch of criminals showed up. We call them Democrats, but I need to get to the next big topic of the day, and the next big topic of the day is a big topic of the day. That's for sure. And Rudy Giuliani, one of the president's lawyers, and Sidney Powell, also one of the president's lawyers representing the president's interests in this ongoing battle. Involving a number of states and voting and they have both made some some truly dare I say, astonishing allegations and they claim that they have the proof and they're going to back it up and And I can't wait for the proof to come out. And for all this to be backed up by facts and lots of evidence and eyewitness testimony and affidavits and all of this good stuff, because what they're saying is is truly incredible. It honestly is The New York Times. Is Ray upset. They're they're leftists, and they're not journalists. They're not in the news business. Their headline is with trench warfare, Deepening parties face unsettled electoral map. And then they write a bunch of stuff for the Democrat Party. It's a press release trench warfare that you know the marshal language. The world like language from the news media, I don't think is very helpful, but, you know, but they're really hell bent on Joe Biden getting into the white man with White House and That more violence the better as far as the Democrat Party is concerned, President Trump, Of course, tweeted Over the weekend, he little slip a little slip of the thumb You've heard of a slip of the tongue. This is in a tweet a little slip of the thumb from the president Trump tweets. Words, quote he won and quote That's their That's their entire thing. Says Vote rigged, not conceding. This is the fake Associated Press used to be legitimate news President Donald Trump worked to take back and apparent acknowledgement actually a little slip when Barack Obama said he sees dead people and all kinds of slips of the tongue, you know, I'm Muslim. You know, little slips of the tongue in the media cleans it up for me. They don't do that. For Republicans. They've pounds an attack. Any slip of the thumb slip of the tongue becomes a permanent part of your record Democrats. They get fluffed. They get fluffed by like the Scott Pelley fluffing Obama over the weekend. So the president did send out a tweet and it was a a mis tweet, a slip of the thumb and in the tweet, he says he only one in the eyes was is the second tweet. Actually, he says that the thing was rigged. But he says he only ones he job. I knows. Look, he said. He won, He said he went there like junior high school students with a gotcha moment. The president tweeted he only one in the eyes of the fake news media. This is the second tweet. I concede nothing. Nothing at all caps with an exclamation mark. We have a long way to go. This was a rigged election rigged and the election in all caps. Now, let's get to what is actually being said by the legal team. Rudy Giuliani is a former U. S attorney, Of course, America's mayor, mayor of New York City. The truck Luddite attacks of 2000 won And and he's a personality and he's a character and and you know he's Rudy Giuliani, but he was out. He was talking yesterday to Maria Bartiromo, Um, weekends there Sunday mornings with Sunday morning futures with Maria Bartiromo. And and I got to get to because there's a lot of it. Let's go to sound bite number nine. Rudy Giuliani talking about the evidence, and there's this company. We're going to get into this Dominion and another sub group that works with Dominion, running our voting machines. And really Giuliani. And of course, didn't he, Paul? Have both come out and said there are really major like huge Hollywood style problems with our election and the voting. Rudy Giuliani starts it off as he's gotten more evidence of the rigging that went on. He's really out and I am too. I mean, it's way beyond what people think, including a very, very Dangerous foreign company that did the votes in 27 States, a company that's not American, a company that's far company that has close close ties with Venezuela and therefore China. And uses Venezuelans companies software that's been used to steal elections in other countries. I mean, I don't think people have any idea of the dimension of the national security problem that two million creates Idea. Dominion is the company and according to themselves, they're a Canada based company, a Canadian based company. The Rudy didn't say they were a Venezuelan, he said. They have ties to Venezuela and then to China as well. Dominion is the name of the company that is they got problems with executives there in things they've said in the past and obvious political bias, and we need to look very closely at this. This Dominion company. Is a radical left company, One of the people there is a big supporter of Antifa and has written horrible things about the president for the last three or four years, and the software that they use is done by a company called Smartmatic. The company that was founded by Chavez and by Chavez is 22 allies who still own on it. It's been used to cheat in elections in South America. It was it was banned. By the United States several about a decade ago. It's come back now. As a subcontractor, the other companies, it sort of hides in the weeds. But Dominion sends everything that Smartmatic, can you believe it? Our votes ascent over seats. Sent someplace else. Some other country Some other country on board. The Giuliani got off the Smartmatic said. I mean, all of this stuff is either going to be easy to prove her. It's not. Rudy Giuliani, one of the chairman of Smartmatic is a close business associate of George Soros. Now we got George Soros and let's see. Now that's anti Semitism. The Democrat. A mention of George Soros is anti Semitism. That's about New York Times and CNN or busy not investigating any of this not looking, and they're not even going to Google. They're not going to duck duck, go to CNN, and he didn't name the executive that he says has This big span of anti FAS and talking about anti fun and the funding with sorrows Soro's funds so much, it's impossible to keep track of all the things that he does fund. But with his many foundations and many tentacles everywhere and then Smartmatic, he says, founded by Hugo Chavez, and it still has ties to the Maduro regime, and we're sending our ballots overseas. If any of this is true of the New York Times should be looking into it, But they're not, of course. And yet you're making these claims you're making these Rudy Giuliani's putting his reputation on the line. Former U. S. Attorney Department of Justice official mayor of New York American hero and he's making these claims that sound quite extraordinary, Amazing, shocking, appalling and And if true, as James Clyburn likes to say, would rock the foundations of our democracy? Rudy Giuliani. Finally you want to get down to the vote. Let's just pick Pennsylvania. We have identified 632,000 illegal votes. 632,000. It's enough to have the president win this state by 300,000. Which is actually what do you want to buy it right for you. If you get that Smartmatic, Michigan out. Before they started doing the Democrat County was added in Pennsylvania by several 732,000.

"We from the Metropolitan Police Department. National P d. We got Sergeant Edward Rucker here, joining us. So thanks again for joining us. Yes, sir. Sergeant Rucker. So Even though these topics might be scary kind of touched on it a little bit in the last segment, but having Children in the house what does some of the things that you would recommend? Teaching Children how to react if there is an intruder in the house? What should they do? Well, the good thing about Children is I mean, they're fast learners. And you know Children from the time we take them to daycare, too. Ah preschool and Mitchell School. You know, they do far, drills and things of that nature what to do in a time of emergency, and it's no different in our homes. And you know, although sometimes it's impractical. No, We need to have a plan so that when situations like this happen, they kind of have an idea of what to do and what to expect. And, you know, you always have to keep in mind that if we're talking about an intruder in our homes, it doesn't have to be on the middle of the night. It can happen any time. So you know, having a plan of if this happens, this is what we're going to do. This is where we're going to go. Okay, once we're in a safe space This is what you can expect, making sure that they know you know to be as quiet as possible. If it's a situation where obviously happened in the middle of the night, you know, imagine just getting yourself kind of together really, really fast. But I mean, you have to go in a child as fast asleep. You know, right now how old they are mean. That's just, you know, a very strange, if not very stressful situation for them. So having a plan, I would just make sure you have a plan. Practice that plan or let's say they're even just Playing in the front yard and somebody walks up and says, Hey, your mom said I should come get you or something. I don't know. Absolutely. I mean, I know some families that have passwords and codes. For their Children. So you know, let's just start with that work. Well, you know, it's just something you again you practice in. You talk to your family over dinner, or just Ah, our family meeting that, Hey, if anybody ever comes up to you on and they don't tell you a certain password or cold, like the secret word is pineapple. Absolutely. It's ah, It's clown. Why kids don't like clowns. Just something really random. Yes, I don't have kids yet. Hopefully at some point that happens, but As a new parent or someone who doesn't have kids yet is there are their resource is like our their pamphlets or books or anything that they can, you know, look up or find somehow to get an idea of these are all the things that we should go through. From a safety standpoint? Yes. I mean, you know, you can always call obviously here in Nashville. Any precinct? All precincts have community coordinators like Like myself and will be happy to come to your home and talk to you know your family because it's what we do. We're just we didn't even know that was available was a little greater. That's that's our jobs. I mean, we are pretty much just a resource. Between the police Department are elected city officials to make sure our citizens have everything that they need to feel safe in their homes. So call whichever precinct that you live in Nashville's ASA speaks of their community coordinator, OK? So I have. My youngest is a boy. And like a lot of little boys. They love their little plastic toy guns. When they're out, they're playing cops and robbers and all that kind of thing. So any advice for Children, especially boys playing with toy guns when they're out about and let's say a police officer drives by absolutely the number one thing is, is make sure that these Children are being supervised in every way. Absolutely every way so that when things like, you know, a police officer passing by or just a neighbour? Oh, are just Ah, Walker. A jogger could be passing by and all they see is just a kid playing with a guy right? If you're out there with them, then that's going to, you know, obviously put them at ease a little bit. Mohr and You know, certainly prevent. You know something? Something crazy. Just something just strange from happening, But, Yeah, I told my son because he has one that he was playing with. It looks almost like a real gun. But the front is all orange. So it's you know, clearly not a gun. Sure, but I told him Hey, if if you ever see a police officer drives by, they don't know you just drop it right? Because Just to be safe, You know, and I didn't know that that had sunk in until a few weeks later, he was out in the front yard playing in the nose. Will police department just kind of cruise through the neighborhood, and they drove by and he immediately he was running. He stopped. He drop it and just waved at the officer assumes the obviously turned the corner. Where he picked up was going to get playing. I thought, all right, that's cool. Yeah, You heard me. That's probably the only time but he heard me. Well, I mean, it's like he said, You know, kids are quick learners. So apparently that one just sunk in quick learners. Alright, so people love putting everything on social media these days. So what kind of information do you recommend not putting on social media to keep yourself safe. Well, you know one thing if you're out of town on vacation, and you know you're taking pictures with your family on the beach wherever you are, you know, really do your best not to post them to your page, because that just advertise is that you're not home, right? You're announcing? Yeah, And how hard is it For somebody who wants to rob your house to find out where you live Technology day? I mean, it's not hard at all a robber or a bad guy that's done. Just a little bit of research can look at a picture and say, Well, they're not here. They're in Cancun or something. We're new here. So you want to just make sure you just wait until you get back home to post things like that on social media. Does that now Would that apply also to just being out and about in the evening like you're posting? You know, a picture from the Titans game or something, you know, Okay. Absolutely. I mean, wherever you go. I mean, I mean to the park. I mean, you know, wave country wherever you go. Just make sure. So what I hear you saying then is that social media is evil. We should get rid of it. Yeah, for sure that I heard you say no, sir. I didn't say that. Okay. Social media certainly has its positives, but it can it can work against you. Yeah. Just make sure you just make sure you have. Ah, time delay, you know, kind of like they do on live TV. It's always three minutes, But there you go. Lots of stuff posting. I'm home, and I'm dangerous. Stay away. Absolutely. Yeah, I don't know. In my case that might not work..

"1 809 191 04. Bye and local. You're listening to the Larry O'Connor show earlier in the program here at the top of the program about the arrests in the District of Columbia since May 30th they're all catalog. Thank you. Metropolitan Police Department MPD doing really doing the best they possibly Khun do I think under their rules of engagement and under their leadership. Sadly, since May 30th through August 31st today at 7 A.m.. There have been 400 Excuse me, 541 individuals who have been arrested. 663 charges filed. Mayor Bowser came out today and said that the vast majority of these arrest these are people who are outside agitators outside agitators. They are not people here in D. C. Who, as she puts it, believe in law and order. Right. Did you excuse me believe black lives matter here, those outside groups of people we don't know who they are necessarily who funds them organizes them you could find and you know they came together to create havoc, and they are not the same as our residents who proudly say Black lives matter. Sure, our residents that would be people who live in D C or in Maryland and Virginia, right? The D. M V 541 Individuals arrested 47% reside in the district of Columbia, 27% in Maryland. 12% Virginia 17% from other U. S states or parts unknown, But, you know, listen, don't let the actual facts of your police department on the MPD Web page and better screen shot it because it will probably be gone soon. Don't let those get in the way of your talking point that these air outside agitators. Oh, And then there was this talking point from the mayor of the District of Columbia. We also know what our job is here. As local law enforcement and I want to call on the federal government was the best way they can and that spies reporting our officers. When we make arrests for violent protest. We need those violent agitators to be prosecuted. When we arrest people for what felony charges. We need the U. S attorney for the district who was a federal appointee of the president to prosecute them. Now the implication is clear there. It's Trump and his Justice Department who were dragging their feet in prosecuting all the people that were arresting right. And of course, as you know, the U. S attorney here has a unique position. They sort of serve as the D A in the District of Columbia. And the implication is very clear there in that statement that hey, we're doing our job. We're arresting these people, but is Trump's U. S attorney that isn't getting the job done in convicting them. Well, I've waited actually for several hours because this remark was made earlier today. I believe around one in the afternoon, maybe two in the afternoon. Finally now of the U. S attorney's office has released a statement. Thank you guys. Ah, I shall read it for you. Over the past year. The United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia has charged more than 9500 cases, which include more than 2500 felony cases, specifically with regard to the spike in protest related violence throughout the district this summer, the officer Festively charged 121 criminal cases from May 28th 2 August First. These cases included assault and battery on local police officers and federal agents, arson cases and the destruction of both private and government property. Most recently over the past week and alone, the office brought criminal charges against five individuals link to protest really advanced. Two of those cases involved assaults on police officers. Mayor Muriel Bowser's public statement today related to the U. S attorney's office, reluctant to prosecute 68 outstanding arrest warrants. Is patently false serves no purpose other than to pass blame and foster innuendo. Since the protests began, the office has never turned down a single case for prosecution in which there was sufficient evidence to support probable cause. The office remains committed to keeping the community safe, but also holds true to the rule of law and constitution. Protections for all citizens. So Today. The talking about no understand something. Democrat leaders across this country in major cities like Washington, D C. Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York. They refused to condemn violence for the most part. They conjoined the violence with protests. They said. Oh, they're mostly peaceful and we don't need the feds help in anything Get out of our business. Everything's fine. Something happened over the last 7 to 10 days where they realize this.

"It's only gonna make matters worse. You've covered a lot of these protests. Brendan, would you agree with that promise? Yeah, Actually, I had just been in Portland Wight before Kenosha. So I'm not even entirely shocked to see this level of escalation because just the week prior there was a massive standoff with AA group of Trump supporters Flashback, the blue flash, just kind of the more conservative fresh right wing. Group versus the Black lives matter, the antique, the socialist groups, and they had gotten in quite a few classes where they were physically brawling, making each other pepper spraying each other. And that was just on Saturday, August 20 seconds a week ago on and so, Yeah, the problem is that you have these groups that come to the same location that was all in downtown Portland as well. Basically the same thought that this shooting the new Portland shooting happened. And it's just such a tough line to walk because I'm one hand your right like the First Amendment. Every one of these groups have the right to be out there, rightly protesting. But the tensions were so high in this country right now one of those members of the other group, and there's immediately that hatred. There's immediately that animosity and discreet fountain. So I mean, yeah, I would Would separate the group in putting them in different locations. Help? Yes, but at the same time, how do you do that? People remember, right. That's extremely tough call. It is tough. I just wish they wouldn't do it. So I'm going to ask you. I don't know if this is a political question or not, But I'm asking you this question. Because this is what you do for 11. You've been involved in so many of these protests. You've been there as an independent video journalist. So the president over the weekend Retweets, this right wing fringe group that shows up in these caravans and calls them great patriots. He retweets them And you know that you know, the underlying thank theme here is that he goes after these BLM protesters puts up that stuff and then supports his people. That were also address and he's not going after protesters who he's going after looters insider So Brendan, would you agree that that's certainly not going to make the situation any better? When the president takes one side and commends one side of the agitators and not the other? Um, I don't know that it affects the situation too much at this point against people, for the most part, know where Trump stand on these things and people knows the things that Trump will call attention shoot things. He won't I honestly at this point, I think it's just one of many voices. Even though it is the person in the United States and that people are so fired up in and of themselves in this, you know, it really isn't gonna affect that much one way or the other. Sadly, you're probably right. Even though I disagree with the president's behavior, so let's move on now. Brendan, Let's move on to Rand Paul National story that broke over the weekend. I thought it was on again my personal opinion, and it might be different than yours. You were there. I was not. I saw the video. You were there, and it appeared to me that Yeah. You had a bunch of you know, I don't know. A dozen Maybe 20 or 30 idiots that were part of the BLM movement that we're yelling at Rand. Paul. I saw a portion of the video that shows a police officer being shoved. Luckily, nobody was seriously hurt far. I understand even though Rand, Paul said that he was attacked and he made it like he was physically attacked, like it was one of his neighbors for for lack of a better term or joke, But with that being said, can you tell us what exactly you saw there and is my description of what took place fairly accurate? Uh, somewhat, so I would say Yeah, he came out He was He had a police detail and there was a local Washington D. C police like the Metropolitan Police Department, and they were out with him. To be honest, I'm not sure why he was walking from the White House over to his hotel, as opposed to taking in some kind of transportation. But that's that whatever's going on internally there, But when I came upon the scene, he was already surrounded by first off the police. That's like the floor circle around him. And then a wider circle around that of the crowd of the black lives matter. Protestors the vast majority of them. Their main thing was chanting Brie on Taylor. They know we're trying because he is the king. Senator. So the Brandy Taylor case that happened there That was a big priority for them can confront him on that issue. And for the most part, I'll be honest. He looks scared. He really did look scared. And I don't say that to tryto put a man down or anything but just looking at his eyes. And then seeing the crowd around him. I definitely think there was some fear there Now. Things weren't violent, and I'm gonna be honest. I've seen some of these folks. That's where people start throwing water bottles and then projectiles and sometimes even fireworks. And there was none of that with us. So they did. At least you know, it was a lot of yelling a lot of crowding around the clothes. They got you when they started to move Rand Paul along and try to get him closer to his hotel. Those crowds. They stayed closed in and the police were outnumbered. There. There were definitely more black lives matter. Protestors that were surrounding that group. Then there were police officers present at that scene, so the police knew they weren't going to be late. Actively trying to push the crowd away was one of the things we're just surround Rand Paul and try to get him to his hotel. And then you know, figure things out after that, And so as they try to move them along, somebody did. I think one of the officers said, like back up from one of the protestors. And then the protesters responds. You back up, pushed into the bicycle wasn't caused that often stumble back then doubled back in Saran Paul. You can see them kind of stumble in the video that I had shot and then Rand Paul could've grabbed the author. Sir, from the kind of from behind on the exit polls. I'm closer to him protection and get going Move board. So in terms of any physical, anything physical on ramp on felt I did not want anything like that. I do know that because of the little pushing and shoving that was going on. They did stumble on and that was definitely a tense moment. Because in that moment I did wonder if The crowd would decide enough enough work clothes then, and we're just going to swarm these officers that I was so to meet running Sure, And to me, Brendan. That would have been absolutely an attack. And I'm so glad that that did not happen even though I can't stand Rand Paul and I understand why people don't like him. I don't. I don't condone yelling at people and that sort of behavior, But with that being said Would you label it the way Rand? Paul is labeling it as he was attacked because I don't see it that way. I did see the heated morning interviews the morning after thinking is attacked by a mob. I think that was the quote. I wouldn't describe it that way. I would think he was surrounded by angry protests Have you know? Because I've seen officers and political officials actually attacked at these things. And that wasn't the equipment what people wanted to attack. They probably would have from further back in the group than throwing projectiles, water bottles, things like that. They been doing it so many of these protests already and none of that was happening. Yeah, I mean, like Rand, Paul's neighbor attacked him. Okay, We can all pretend that that was an attack. Really? So when you see someone, but that being said the fact that those protestors or the mob, I guess I was yelling at Briana Taylor's name to Rand Paul, who actually wrote the bill. The senator in the Kentucky who actually wrote the bill. He eliminated the No knock warrant to me shows how ignorant they are. Well, Rand. Paul's Okay, Go ahead. Go ahead, Brandon. The issue that a lot of the protest is interesting. You bring that up the along..

I mean, 1% of America is three million people. So you have a lot of people in the streets or anti police and still have 95% of the country behind you. I would go a little bit lower than what Tom said. And I would point to the liberal districts where Democrats have control. That's where you have a problem. But you know they're people might not speak up, but they still need you Don't pay. They think they don't Until that time comes that one in 100 times when I become so dangerous that they need to call the cops to say that, but On DH. Quick question. Do you believe police are withdrawing from the street? As a result, absolutely E mean that's pretty obvious, but again, this has been going on for years, and it's leading up to a point where it's at a crisis. Now I just hope That the rest of America can see what's happening in places like Portland and Seattle and understand what happened in Venezuela could very well happen in certain parts of this country.
