"For the past two years now voice a little horse but for the past two years. We've been fighting to free michael thompson from prison in michigan. He's been incarcerated for twenty five years not for murder not for a sexual assault. Not for robbery but for selling weed. And if you've heard me say this before it's important for me to say it. Wow michael was incarcerated. He literally saw people who were for murder. Serve their entire term and get released. He saw people who were convicted. Some who plead guilty or who didn't who were convicted of sexual assault. Serve their entire term. Michael was imprisoned for so long that he literally saw people start their career at the prison and work their entire career and retire. And while michael was there for selling weed non violent crime while he was there his parents died is only son died. He lost virtually everything he had accept his dignity and he continued hoping and believing that one day he would be free. They convict they. They sentence this man to over forty years. We had to fight to get the governor of michigan. The attorney general of michigan lieutenant governor of michigan. The local district attorney. We had to fight to get them to make this commutation to release this man and when they released him. They didn't do so in my mind. You weed is now legal in michigan and has been legal in michigan for years and even after it was legalized they continued to keep him incarcerated on thankful the gall nerve they continued to keep him incarcerated but michael continue to hope and believe that he would be freed in this past week. Finally in twenty twenty one michael was freed and when they let michael out. They didn't do so with a multi million dollar settlement. They didn't do so where they gave him. Thirty thousand one hundred thousand dollars or two hundred thousand dollars a year for every year. He was incarcerated. They didn't give him a check for one thousand dollars. They gave him nothing. No housing no transportation. He's on his own. Which is crazy because now he's a senior citizen out in this world that has changed so drastically. He's been imprisoned. i'm forty one. He's been imprisoned since i was teenage boy. And we're going to buy this man a house if you go to my instagram page and click the link in my bio and by the time you click the link.

You're doing that in your fifties. And you know we talk about Jackie. Robinson there were other players, Josh? Gibson. Was the one that I would have been most curious about how great he would've been because by all accounts those who played with and against him in the Negro Leagues talked about him being. Babe Ruth like player. Nineteen ninety-three Dan Charles Barkley was the guest host of Saturday night live. Can you guess the musical guest? Nineteen ninety-three. About as good as it gets.

Michael Jordan announced returned to the NBA as a player for the Washington Wizards. Two thousand one. Kyle and California joining us on the program Kyle. Welcome back what do you have for me? They DP hey, but I, you're you're totally right on Lebron He's not quite the same guy. He's exerting themselves a lot more especially on defense. You know goes cavs team you know stick them on Harrison Barnes or whatever, and he comes to play weakside. He can't really do that anymore and then the whole nuggets free-throw saying they've shot the same amount for four games before last night's game but nuggets have shot twelve more for each other than the Lakers so. If Lebron suits, two free throws and again I think I just taught. Quote Kyle, Korver said when he plays against Lebron, you think he gets every call and play with them doesn't get nearly enough. And you're probably right but I did say keep an eye on those totals for him. You know has gone to the line and I think they're the exact number of free throws in this series so far with these teams. But as they move forward does Denver get a little bit more leeway here coming up and also sometimes the team that just lost comes back in his in his more aggressive minute just natural.

"For nearly a year. Now I have personally begged Gretchen. Whitmer over and over and over again to please set Michael Thompson free. He poses no public safety risks to society. He never has. He is an old man now. He's been a model citizen in prison. He's been a mentor to other incarcerated men for decades and while Michael has been in prison. I need you to understand this. Men who were convicted of rape and murder have come in. Serve their entire sentence and been released. Men who actually shot people during drug deals were then caught with the gun that they use for the crime have come into the prison. That Michael was in serve their time in left. Michael has seen prison. Guards comment serve their entire career and retire all while he's been in prison. It's an abomination. I've called Gretchen Whitmer. I've emailed Gretchen. Whitmer. I've sent her male. I've sent her letters and packages. I have pleaded with her. Friends have begged her staff. I spoke to the Lieutenant Governor and nothing and I am left at. This point to conclude Gretchen. Whitmer doesn't care. She wants Michael Thompson to suffer because as governor. She could release him today. He's served twenty six years in prison for a non violent drug crime. But let me tell you what I actually think is happening. I've Seen Democrats do what I think. Gretchen. Whitmer is doing right now. I've seen them do it for generations when I started fighting for Michael to be released Gretchen. Whitmer wasn't necessarily in the national spotlight. She hadn't yet been given the opportunity to give the democratic response to the state of the Union that she gave this past January. She wasn't rumored to be on the shortlist for VP. But now that she is. She's doing what all. Democrats think they have to do to look tough. She's sparing nobody by governor of New York. Andrew Cuomo is basically doing the same thing when her star began to rise. My heart began to sink. I told friends and colleagues that what I thought would happen is exactly what's happening. She'd freeze. She'd be so careful on every single decision that she'd stopped making decisions like this when altogether and here. We are over the past few weeks. Michael's attorneys and advocates have started to ask her to release him just to prevent him from catching the corona virus in prison. Where he would likely die if he contracted it still as we see governors and district attorneys and mayors released from jail and prison. All over the country still from Gretchen. Whitmer nothing crickets. And it's heartbreaking because we celebrate electing Democrats and we cheer. We put them there but here we are. We elected a Democrat in Michigan as governor. Here we are. She's in office secure as ever approval ratings as high as ever and she won't use her power to help woman in need it's frustrating. It's maddening because it's been spelled out. Does somebody could say well Sean. She's got a lot to do. We've been asking her for over a year and before I started asking. Her people had been pleading with her for years. People were pleading with the governor before her. What are we waiting on? Please release this man do what you were elected to represent the people you are elected to represent and release. Michael Thompson from prison. He has served twenty six years. Your state cannot afford to continue wasting its money. Having people like Michael in prison when he poses no safety risk in fact he's only a liability to the state and to public safety in prison. Why is he there? What's the purpose other than cruel and unusual punishment? Listen I'VE GOTTA run. We're going to develop some action steps for Michael in the days ahead but I need you to understand this story so we can continue fighting again to free Michael Thompson. Take care of your body bring number but bring them and bring the bring bringing in the spring break break break break Derek. Bring up break break break..

Why is Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer ignoring our calls to release Michael Thompson from prison?
"Twenty six years ago with Bill Clinton still in his first term as President Michael Thompson. I need you understand this. Who was forty two years old at the time? He wasn't a cave. Not that being in prison for twenty six years when you're a kid is any different but Michael Thompson was forty two years ago and sold some weed to an old friend. It was a harmless transaction. That's it that's the crime Michael Thompson committed accept. It turned out that his old friend had become a police informant in police. Were using Michael's old friend to set up anybody and everybody they could. Michael of course had no idea that his friend was working for. The police sold the we to his friend and got arrested. This exchange of we'd of marijuana from money. It didn't take place in Michael's home but police used the moment as an excuse to later raid. Michael's home and when they did so again. This is all the way back in Nineteen ninety-four. They found an antique gun in a safe along with a handgun that belonged to his wife. Mind you Michael. Didn't have these guns on him when he sold the weed. He wasn't even at the house when he sold it. So you can't say. He committed a drug crime with a firearm but police and prosecutors packaged the weed. And the guns together like they were one big crime and ultimately sentenced. Michael to forty to sixty years in prison which is basically a life sentence for a forty two year old man and they never looked back. That was twenty six years ago. Now the sentence for having unregistered guns in your home would have been one to two years at most some people get probation for such a thing. It's a victimless crime. Michael didn't use the guns in a crime. They guns were just in his home. You get one to two years for that. The sentence for selling the weed typically would have been a few years. Marijuana is now legal in Michigan a harsh sentence for Michael Thompson selling we to his friends and then later under very suspicious circumstances getting arrested or getting charged with guns in the home the the warrant in that case is very suspect but a harsh sentence from Michael in that case would have been four to five years. Ten years would have been excessive. Fifteen years would have been extreme. Twenty years would have been outrageous. We're now at twenty six years. This is a human rights violation. I speak to Michael on the phone regularly. And He's struggling. He's a senior citizen and prison ages. You in dog years a year in prison with horrible sleep on a cheap mattress with the worst food in the country. Entire meal sometimes cost less than a dollar per person to make and being under in living under the constant threat of violence with the worst healthcare imaginable. A single year in prison is hard time. Michael is twenty six years. He has underlying several underlying health conditions including diabetes and respiratory problems. That now put him at grave risk with the threat of the corona virus sweeping across America's jails and prisons and one person cassette. Michael Free. Right now no questions asked. And that's Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. She's a Democratic Party superstar and is constantly mentioned as a possible vice presidential candidate of Joe Biden and she has the power right now to release

I don't just want you to take my word for it. I need you to go to twitter and type in parchment P. A. R. C. H. M. A. N. in the search box or just go to Google and type in Parchman prison. But I would rather you go to twitter for one very particular reason the media is really censoring the truth about. What's going on at Parchman Richmond and many of us including myself are talking to men inside of Parchman were talking to families who have relatives inside of Parchman and I would go so far as to say that it is one of the biggest disasters in the American prison system in modern American in history? We've now had ten people die in. Mississippi's prisons in just the past. Three weeks eight have died there in Parchman. We are having people people that are being stabbed just in the past two days back to back. PARCHMAN has announced that they've had to suicides and people inside of the prisoners. Saying No. Those aren't suicides. Those are people being killed by guards and inmates inside died of Parchman and the officials in Parchman don't want to admit it and so they are saying. Oh a new suicide a new suicide a news a yet another suicide aside as if there is a like a suicide flu going on in parchment what we know is that the conditions there a horrible. We are hearing inmates. And not just here. And we're seeing. They are smuggling photos autos and videos from inside of the prison out where there is no heat. No air no clean water. I hate to be a graphic nick but there are entire cellblocks where the toilets are not working in. The men are being asked to p and to urinate in defecate in bags. It's getting everywhere. We see raw sewage and overflow on the floors the conditions conditions. I will say in addition to the horrible inhumane unsanitary conditions inside of the inside of the prison. The conditions are indeed conducive to suicide. Making you want to do anything to get out of the place and so whether these are suicides or not. We do know that just three weeks ago. There were a rash of killings there. I saw that these weren't suicides. I saw aw. I saw the images of the men who had been killed who had been stabbed to death. I saw blood all over the prison. And now that they they have basically gone out of their way at the prison to take away and to find as many of the phones and other things and I'm glad for those phones otherwise is we would not know how horrible the conditions are. But they've taken almost all of them. Away and prisoners are saying to their families. Listen these aren't suicides. The these are murderers happening inside of the prison. What I know is this is a national emergency? It's a national emergency that needs to be addressed somehow by the trump administration and we may say yeah right but listen if there's anything they can do to intervene they need to. He claims claims to care about criminal. Justice Reform Jared Kushner claims to care about criminal justice reform. Well Republicans control almost every every facet of the state government there so we need the state officials there to intervene. And it's just deeply disturbing and it gets. It's back to this idea that I've shared with you. That this nation has throwaway people. It will allow anything everything to happen to enact as if it does does not matter because they will one day. Convicted of a crime foolishness. It's a national emergency department. That just want you for yourself.

Three, you know, just the people eat maybe eight to ten of field goal attempts game because he's got surrounded by guys who want to score and love to score. Michael Thompson, joins Michael. I know you watch a ton of NBA basketball, not just the Lakers and the warriors. But how good is Luca Donka ch. And how how does he now and how good is he going to because you watch him and he's a kid, and he's just getting started. I know he played his appro in the in the European league for a while.

Obviously, I was all finished drafting my boy from the Bahamas de'andre eight big eight and fan, and you know, that support my boys in the Bahamas, but I don't understand how to kings the hawks and Memphis pass on that.

Oh, men second lead in the world dominate over there. And you don't want that kid. I don't wanna stand. I wouldn't Scott. We'll look at that. Just baffles me as we watch this kid develop Dallas right now and Michael shifting gears. We were talking earlier about the dodgers and the Bryce Harper sweepstakes. And the dodgers being linked to him. You know, it's going to be thirty to forty million dollars a year. People are estimating eight you think the? Gers need Harper and be how much better do you think he is actually than Yasuko Puig's, especially considering the price especially considering that pass?

"I had a monster game in the in the game. And he said, you know, who does he remind you of someone asked him, and he said that shot reminds me of Jamaal Wilkes. He's like Jamaal Wilkes shot was like a snowflake falling off a bamboo leaf those were the words that Riley used to describe your shot. You hear that stuff? What do you think back is Michael thinks about three hour practices and Byron things about our practice? I'm sure that's part of the equation those days Riley. What were those like with you guys? They were three are practices were very intense very competitive. You know, he's very intelligent with his of practice time. And he's very demanding. He's very demanding. And we we all pushed each other. I mean, and that's what made it all work. We all knew that we would get a chance to play and whoever was playing well at the end of the game. You know, that's the state is. So it was a real tree not only playing for coach Riley. But knowing Pat, and Chris Riley, they're really really wonderful people to this day. Michael Thompson is still frightened Pat Riley really is imitated by do you still do have a fearful relationship with what you know? That's very interesting because when Riley came out of the broadcast booth years ago, right? You remember we were the veterans. He was the traveling secretary. The head coach. So I knew him at the beginning. Right. You know, he was a little different. I mean, you know, he was he absorbed so much so quickly. And then of course, once you know, we have success. He has success he became a little bit more authoritarian. That way, by the way, things haven't changed this. So let's talk about this team. We only have a couple of minutes here with us. We gotta run here shortly. But look rough start for this team. We talked to Byron the other day. Byron says you've got to preach patients. You gotta wait a month year. Former teammate Michael Thompson says that they should have been fifteen in five out of the gate, where do you li- on this particular roster or I think maybe next year they'll be fifteen in five out of the gate this year. I think they're going to need at least a good twenty thirty games. Lebron frankly city ended Cleveland probably didn't even play touch best basketball very much over the summer to recently. And of course, they have to get to know each other coach Luke Walton is still evolving as a coach I think he's doing a great job. But he's they're all still he's he LeBron just getting to know each other. So that's why I know it's hard. It's hard to think patience, and all we gotta wait. And you know, and especially if the last several years of always. Know being kind of disappointed, quite frankly. But I think this year will be worth. And now I'm not saying we're going to win the championship this year. But I think we'll have a good opportunity to make the playoffs. Right. And more importantly, it's a key thing that not only did LeBron come to the Lakers, but he signed for years. Yeah. He didn't do a one year two. You do not. I don't know what all the opt-outs at opt in to three. But that's still a good enough time. Good enough time. So that shows the commitment on his part. And so I think I think we're headed in the right direction. I'm sorry. What to log? No, it's Jamal is should that. Just be the golden like let's make the playoffs. It's been five years in my home of opinion. I mean, I'm not I'm just speaking for myself. But I think that should be the goal, right? And I think it's a it's a reasonable goal, and it's a realistic goal this. Let's make the playoffs. And of course, once you get in you wanna win keep winning. But let's just get there. And get a taste of what it's like together. So that we know next year. What's what what it's going to be about? We'll just because it's the goal doesn't mean it has to be the end game. I mean, you can build off your goals once you get there..

But you're going to wait a minute. You're going to do the Michael Thompson version. Oh, let's all Ireland. So you're gonna do the the up this players. Exactly, you're the one who coined the what's happening players on why you should go. As Michael's writing didn't solid Michael the great thing. When when I asked him what he was going to go as for Halloween says he's going to go as Rick Fox why? Because I wanna know what feels like to be the world's best looking man through the great. If you could dress up as Rick Fox, you have great success with women. But I am marriage. I gotta watch that. Yes. Yes. True. Michael. I'm not the least bit concerned about the Lakers predicted that they would go fifteen and four star eleven and four to start the pushing every panic button, I can see really pushing every panic button toward five it's seven games in your pushing panic buttons should be five. You should listen to Ireland Ireland said, it would be ten and ten you. You realize that the Lakers are scoring. One hundred twenty three points a game and giving up one hundred twenty two point three. They're they're the only going to do is figure out how to close. Well, that's true. Now, there's more than that. But can we afford to fall behind before eleven became an west still think down wire, you mmediately going to the foreign Levin because they're two and five you're milking optimism three four and eleven three and five tonight. We'll beat the Dallas up the Portland tough place to win. So he might be three and six coming home might go. That doesn't bother me. If there they were nineteen and twenty east year LeBron was in Clinton east Ireland, right, but he had Rian Kevin love. We don't have Rian Kevin that you can afford that luxury and east in the west you can't five wait a minute. The rockets are one in six because injuries. They'll turn it around because Paul's been out suspended hardens S three losses. Michael. Let me ask you something. So Monday night against Minnesota. Luke, Walton used twenty five different combinations of five guys. How do you?.
"michael thompson" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"I would pay attention to that if clay is longing for LA and that's what his father grew up around and. You don't think clay says to himself, if you were to think of a perfect landing space for Klay Thompson, it's not that trade that was talked about a few years ago which was Kevin love to Minnesota. This is said the Golden State turned this down, Kevin love from Minnesota Golden State, and it's changed for Klay Thompson. That's not the deal. I think Klay once being the number one player on a, you know, a late seat. I think the deal he would want is wait who's the best player in the history of the world to get me the basketball at the three point line. And that would be LeBron James, the the theory. The EMI theory is always that clay was gonna find his way in the lake on the Lakers and Michael Thompson is dead historically, hasn't done anything to push back on that, which is why it only gained senior. However, the most recent comments for Michael Thompson on this matter was that Claes going to retire with the warriors. He's finally realized that he should probably stop making life if this is the direct quote. And it doesn't mean that this I'll find into. Watching this because sometimes kids like to carve a different path than their parents even if the basketball chromosome has been hand me down, this is what his father. The famous Laker. Michael says, quote, he's got such a good thing here. The warriors have such a special thing here for the next six or seven years. They're going to be championship material. They're not going to break that up. That's the quote, but Michael man, I remind you that those Lakers of yours, we're never going to be broken up either. And then Pat Riley was writing a book. He still regrets to this day about the inside season on the Lakers and at the end they wanted Pat Riley out of there and the teams dynamic changed really doesn't matter what clay once right? It matters LeBron ones. That's it. Like clanking wanna be there all he wants if indeed he don't. Why wouldn't LeBron want him there? He wants more maybe guys that he wants. Wants to rent more, but clay is the guy if I were to upside of Steph or dranked you got, it's not just that you gotta get a guy to beat them. You have to weaken them in doing so like it's LeBron getting another and a guy. That's not what he needs LeBron needs to get another guy from them, right. That will close the gap. It will close again, but probably still not enough right now if they get to rent that's enough the rent. Yes, but LeBron. Food? Yeah. I like I like LeBron's chances with Klay Thompson, and then of course you get somebody else. That's how they're going to do it. That's that. That's the game of thrones LeBron's, not just going to sit there and wait for Kevin Durant to get bored with championships, like he's just not. Maybe for one sees donlevatar the one John Fogerty song. Do you call it centerfield or put me in coach when he died. This is the only thing I knew that he did. I was sad. I was like, I never see him seeing it. Live stugatz Fogarty was just on the show. I don't think he died. Billy just like, killed him. He's alive. So two weeks ago. Wait a minute.

"Blah Mason in Ireland, show Michael Thompson information who has a masters in taking days off the HD PHD. He he's as good at it as anyone you shouldn't be growing, you should be yawning. Why does nothing happening in a major league trading deadline? Well, there it's not over yet Micheal, no one hour, two hours to one o'clock to five, Greg. So Clark Arthur, one o'clock, one o'clock, really? Yep. So we got sixty minutes left. Aren't you anticipated like most trade deadline's at a a rash of deals will come down in the next sixty minutes because we're not hearing everything coming from Busta only you know BUSTER would be over everything. We haven't even heard a peep. You know, as of this morning BUSTER, I watch get up this morning and BUSTER thought there was a really good chance. Bryce Harper would be traded today, but then Mike Rizzo the GM and the nationals came out and said, he's not trading Harper, Greg. Is that good enough for you? Do you believe him? Do you think Harper is staying put? Harper is staying put in Washington and it's not going anywhere. They wanna resign him. Okay. So. If they're gonna resign them, I understand what they're doing. If they're not going to resign him, then they're being stupid. Michael stubborn, yeah, you know, I, I would argue everybody should things about Mitch Cup, Jack, and Jim bus. Laker fans look at them as failed executives. It's not true the if you're gonna if you're gonna, call them out for the last five years. You also have to give them credit for the championships. They won, but. Mitch. And Jim, in my opinion, made two critical errors that led to them eventually being ousted. The one that everybody points to are the dang in the Moscow sign is okay, but the ones that don't get enough attention are letting pow Gosol into white Howard walkaway for nothing where you and I were talking about it the yesterday that if you know if you have an asset and you know you're not gonna resign them in the Lakers tried to resign to white couldn't do it. We got lucky there because then he just played for four different teams since he left. But in the case of pow, they had pretty much determined that they weren't gonna pay him. They should've traded him and they didn't do it. Now if the nationals nationals have fifty nine minutes to either trade Bryce Harper or potentially resign him in the offseason if they think they can't resign them, they should trade him in the next hour. So we'll keep an eye on that, but you know what I'm saying? If you think guys leaving, what's the point in keeping? Yeah. And if they're willing to go, I mean Bryce Harper three hundred million for ten years. Thirty mania. I guess that's the going rate decides what the the forty million a year for. I mean, not even trout makes that now don't they? I think Bryce Harper with the year he's had this year is stop with the forty million a year. He's not getting it. Let's say, ends up hitting forty. Five home runs driving in one hundred and five runs naked. Greg's anybody get forty million. I'm thinking anybody gets. I think that's going to beat you. I think Machado would be a guy that got close and I don't think he's Machado is more if you had to pick Michael between Machado and and Harper wouldn't you take Machado? Yeah, he's more he's more consistent at the plate goals lover. Defensively shortstop multiple position. Yeah, hits for average and has a chance to hit as many home runs as Harper bigger star. Yeah, you know, with these marketing and his hair and the woman derby and everything is Pete Rose style of, but in Los Angeles, especially a guy me Manny, Machado. You know, with our Hispanic population here, although I think main manny's from Miami's Cuban think he's. Rican them..
