"michigan state police" Discussed on WJR 760
"Frank Beckmann show. Welcome back to our program. I really should, say the Republican state senator from Charlotte, Michigan's 24th district. He is the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee on Military and Veterans Affairs as well. A state police and state police have been in a little bit of a controversy lately over revelations that they might be Withholding information. If you will. I'll explain here as we move forward, but Tom Barrett is with us Senator Tom Barrett from Charlotte. We're happy to have him on the show. Once again. The state police. Some of them are apparently using this new app called Signal, which is a messaging app. That also bypasses the state server. It's not hooking to the state server. So if somebody wants to do a FOIA request on what's honest police officers phone there's no record of that when the messages are deleted. And so that's that's a concern among some Tom Barrett state senators. I said on the other end of our line, and the state police said they have used it, and apparently they're going to stop using it. What do you What are you hearing in Lansing? And how concerned are you about it, Senator Thank you, Frank. Thanks for having me on and good morning. It is a concern. It's a concern about transparency and accurate record keeping and the Freedom of Information Act has been a long standing practice in Michigan. On. Do you know virtually every other state that you turn over records when they are requested that their official public records As you pointed out. Part of the problem is that this act that was used allows for the permanent and unrecoverable destruction of that record, so unlike an email that is sent It would be retained on the state server or a hard drive of a device. One of the highly advertised features of this particular app is that the messages themselves would be totally and completely destroyed, and un recoverable in it appears to the preliminary review that was completed. That several of the top brass of the Michigan State police may have been using this app. We don't know to what extent and we don't know whether or not the messages were deleted on their particular devices. Have these leaders in the in the state police had their records subpoenaed for any reason Is there is there an effort to the courts to take a look at the messages that they put into their cell phones? Well, there was a lawsuit that was filed against the Michigan State police by an employee who claims that he was either passed over for a promotion or was basically you know, fired from his job. Due to improper race and gender preference hiring practices within the department so basically illegal affirmative action practices within the department. The Department, of course, denies that there's an ongoing litigation and case involving that. They went for records requests involving his employment and dismissal from the department. The attorneys for this man claimed that they got back very little. And that's when he started to make this claim about the use of this app that he is, I believe, alleging may have been used to discuss his employment situation in a way that would have scared the ability to recover that record or to have any way of retrieving that later on either for the Freedom of Information Act. Or for litigation, because, if that if the message is destroyed, it's not just the Freedom of Information Act. It's affected. It's any litigation or any any other purpose that you would need to retrieve that record, either. I would think that the governor and the attorney general would want this information available that not wanted hidden. I'm rather surprised they're not jumping into this fray with you and joining, joining on your side. Yeah, you know, and I want to give the benefit of the doubt where we can to the Michigan State Police. There are certainly than absolutely purposes where they need the ability to encrypt record or encrypt messages. That's another feature of this tool is that you can encrypt the Message going from one party to the next, certainly in the job that they have in the performance of their duties. That could be a very important feature, but the other highly advertised feature of this messaging service. Is that the message itself can be totally and completely erased with no recover ability at all. So you know, it's not that they necessarily did that. It's asking the question of why would you use this application? If that were the intended purpose of it? Now they claim that all of their employees are trained on proper record retention and that if someone wants to make the case that they deleted a record they shouldn't have. They need to bring that forward for an investigation. Our point is, it's impossible to do that. If the act itself totally destroys that record sound like we can go on to the state server and do a forensic hard drive. You know, retrieval of that record and say, Here's something that you should have turned over that you didn't Half itself totally destroyed the record entirely in a way that makes it really unrecoverable. One of the things that I brought up in the committee was that on the on the home page of this service is quote by Edward Snowden talking about his use of the happen. You know when you have People like that, using it. I think it shows perhaps some of the intent of why it is being used. You know, I must say Senator Byrd. I'm a little surprised. The attorney general hasn't joined you in this because she's talked so much about transparency, And she wanted that when Speaker Shirky and her leadership he was at the White House was going to investigate him for All sorts of possible crimes. And yet we have something like this right in Lansing, and we're not hearing anything about the attorney general's office getting involved. Right. Frank. Actually, the attorney general is representing the Michigan State police in this lawsuit, where this has been a point of contention, so the attorney general's action on the opposite side. In the sense that she is, you know, her attorneys are defending the Michigan State police in this in this particular practice, and you know there could be as I stated there could be a totally benign, legitimate use of this, but there's gotta be a way that we can be assured that the retention of the records is done under the Freedom of Information Act as required. And under the you know legal state standards for subpoena ability and other record retrieval that need to be done most records that are produced by the state of Michigan by state employees, sending an email to a colleague. Or anything like that would be retained in some way on a state server. Even if they're deleted on your computer at your work station, you put it near deleted folder and you move on. It would be retained for some period of time on the state's servers. Well, it's on the hard drive of the device. This bypasses all of that in no way touches on the state's server and then allows for the total destruction of that record at the time that the person chooses and it can be done automatically, so you as the individual using the APP consented to automatically delete records. After a period of time that you choose. Yeah, just so I understand this Senator Tom Barrett. You're not seeking any any kind of penalties against the people are using it. You just want them to get it off of there, State your strict phones and and make their information available in case it's ever fly it. Right? We're not. We're not making any accusation at this point that there was, you know, a record deleted. That shouldn't have been that would certainly elevate the you know, type of consequences that would be present. What we're at this point Trying to do is figure out how many people have used it. What was the purpose behind it? Did anybody delete records? You know, those are also questions that are out there did the Director Colonel Gaspar have the APP or used the APP. Why would he be using it? They said that you know there could be tens or they need to communicate with other law enforcement agencies. This allows any type of device android iPhone or other toe. All download this app and having encrypted form of communication, But they could not cite a single operation where that was the you know, actual communication tool that was used Supposed to get back to us on that There were a lot of questions left to be answered after the committee for them to come back and respond to us with All right. Listen, we really appreciate the time this morning if I could ask you one political question before you go, And that's about the battle between Laura Cox and Ron Wiser. Laura Cox now wants to run for for party chair again, Ron Wiser, supposing her and it sure seems like they're starting an Internet in war..

Michigan State House, Senate close over 'threats of violence' during Electoral College meeting
"Looked for a time earlier today. Like things could get ugly in michigan. The state closed its house and senate office buildings over what they said were credible threats of violence during today's electoral college meeting and then republican state representative gary isan suggested he and other republicans would disrupt the electoral college vote. He also predicted there. Would be violence prompting this. Can you assure me that this is going to be a safe day in in lansing. Nobody's gonna get hurt no. I don't know what we're doing. Today is chartered. Here's it been done after. Gary isan made those comments michigan. Republican legislative leaders pulled him from his committee assignments. Meanwhile the scene in lansing was thankfully ultimately cau- just a dozen or so pro-trump protesters showing up outside the capitol a chilly day and when he grow group of republican electors tried to enter that building michigan state. Police turn them away. Half of those call was much an often from holding or ignore taking part of your process. Anybody else thank ben check in inside the democratic electors about the people's business where they elected joe biden. Starting barnes. has the tally been completed. Yes lieutenant governor. The elected unanimously cast. Sixteen votes for joseph r biden. I'm joined now by michigan's democratic secretary of state johnson benson earlier. This month had her home surrounded by angry trump supporters. Some of them harmed who falsely accused her of allowing the election to be stolen. But start secretary of state with your your top line on. Today i was. I was a bit worried when i saw the news about closing the house and the senate but it seemed like things went smoothly. How do you feel went today. I think it was a great day for democracy. Chris was really a reflection of all the work that went into this election to ensure that we were able to have a high turnout election In the midst of the pandemic all the work that's happened. Since the polls closed on november third to ensure the votes were counted accurately it securely and really this was the the end result of a long and winding road that every step of the way we work to make sure that the voters well was heard and democracy was protected. We have seen now. Obviously there were arrests of a number of individuals who have been charged with allegedly plotting the kidnapping or execution of the democratic governor. Gretchen whitmer You had people outside of your house Some of them armed a protesting. There were concerned today in arizona. As i understand it where the leading of the electors was moved to an undisclosed location. What does it do to democratic governance and democracy when this sort of threat of violence hangs over the activities of folks. What you know. I started my career in the south investigating and hate crimes all around the country and was really instilled there with the strong sense in an acute awareness of just how much oftentimes does have to be preserved in the potential for violence that that could engender to ensure that democracy does prevail. And so that's never been lost on me and many of us including my friends secretary hobson in arizona. And it's something that we're actually acutely aware rows and willing to with to endure in order to ensure that our democracy is protected. A lot of people have said to me this year. Did you really sign up for this and my response is absolutely. I absolutely signed up to put everything on the line to protect the will of the people to protect our democracy. None of us of course predicted all of the turns of events that have occurred since the polls closed But that said we're ready and will continue to be ready. We'll continue to stay safe to ensure that our democracy and turn is also safe. Something i've seen a in many states across the nation in reaction is a real circular logic from republicans in which after touting or tolerating or even endorsing these blue to chris conspiracy theories now pointing and saying well people. Are you know. There's a lot of concern and using that as a predicate for restrictions on voting. Well we're gonna have to shutdown mail in voting. Well we're gonna have to take another look at this. Well we're gonna have to do voter. Id and signature matching all these things. How much you seen that michigan. Do you think there's going to be a battle now about ballot access. The uses these conspiracies as a kind of weaponized tool. Yeah sure it again. That's also what we've seen. Throughout the history of our democracy people create a fire and then create an idea of what needs to put that fire out and often times. Election administrators are stuck in the middle and that voters are are stuck in the middle. When i believe needs to happen is we need to one come together and actually listen to each other and try to heal this. Divide right now but to do so. On the basis of facts and data and truth we all have to be working from the same set of facts here. Facts and truth have actually been unequivocal undeniable throughout this entire process. We had a high turnout election michigan. Five point five million people voted in the midst of the pandemic. It was secure. The results were accurate. So we can start from there. We can find ways to improve the process moving forward making data driven decisions but we also have to do is acknowledge the impact of the conspiracy theories in false information that has been spread by many actors throughout this process and correct that before trying to solve for any potential issues. Moving forward right michigan secretary of state jocelyn benson. Thank you so much for being with me.

"Polling place all designed to make sure that you've got a very comfortable environment that there's no Chance of voter intimidation. Jake again thanks for waiting on the line there. I have talked with people in law enforcement. They worry about whether or not this is truly enforceable and whether or not they will enforce it. Because it isn't in statue. It isn't in attorney general's opinion. It isn't in a court order, and they're not sure that the secretary of state has the authority. To do something like this. It's like her legislating from her office. Can you Can you address some of those concerns from our friends in law enforcement? Yeah, I would. I would say a couple things to that. So first, I would say that you know our way issued this directive, actually in communication with the attorney general. You know, And in working with the Michigan State police and you know, in starting today, and over the next several weeks, there will be you know, maybe a work done to inform and communicate with local law enforcement across the state. To make sure that they understand. You know exactly how this directive works, You know, to answer their questions and make sure that they know you know how it is that that they should enforce laws surrounding voter intimidation. The other thing I would say, is just you know again. The directive is based on existing law. It's based on a confluence of laws, you know laws that are relevant to gun rights laws that are relevant to voter intimidation in laws that are relevant. Elections. You know, a parallel that I like toe point out is that you know in, for example, everybody knows that they can walk outside. They can, you know, take out their phone and they can take pictures right? Everybody takes pictures all over the place. However. On Election day when they walk into a polling place. You can't take pictures everywhere because people who are voting have the right to a private ballot and you know That's not written explicitly directly in anyone state statute passed by the Legislature, and yet it's something that has been enforced and has been in place. For a director, Michigan Department of State for many years, and so, you know, this is really a parallel thing. Neither context specific regulation based on you know where different rights come to play. With each other. Okay, Jake. Thanks So much for explaining this did a great job and we appreciate that the the intentions behind this certainly, and hopefully we can figure out a way to make sure that everybody has a safe. And ah, intimidation free experience when they go to the polls. We fully expect that voters across the state are gonna have a good experience on election day, and we look forward to it. All right. You take care our best of the secretary. Let's get to our calls. 108 5909571 808 590 W. J. R couple quick notes before we do that, talking to one of the leading law enforcement officials in the state of Michigan. Who said, Look, we rely heavily on the law here, and what we have used is court orders. The courts have ruled. We are an open carry state. That is the law that law enforcement recognizes. And they are not sure and they do not see anything in statute. That says that the secretary of state has this power. At least they're asking that question In the attorney. The attorney general sent out some guidance to them, and I already have it in my possession. And its sights to pieces of election law, neither one of which addresses security and polling places or anything like that it just as the secretary of state is the ultimate authority for supervising election officials. That may be true. But that doesn't give her the authority to a bridge open carry rights here in the state of Michigan. Now I understand that this is well intentioned. I totally support what their intent is. I'm just not sure that once again that the secretary is in her lane, and this may face a challenge. We shall see. Let's get to the phones on this. 108 5909571 808 590 W. J. R. Do you appreciate what the secretary's doing? Does it raise some concern about rights? Let's get Teo Paul, who's calling in from Farmington Hills Pillow, Sir. They're good First time caller. Good to talk with you. Good to see you're still in the news organizations here in the Metro Detroit area, So yes, I know you are. I'm goingto talk about this directly and cut right through to the chief. Michigan State police legal up number 86, which is go to about open Terry as an area talking about brandishing firearms. It quotes in their attorney general opinion 71 01, which I believe the secretary of state has completely failed that understanding in that attorney general opinion. Divides guy into state in person. When Terry, you're here and going in a holster in Plainview, They're not waving or display of firearms in a threatening manner. What kind of comeback does not constitute brandishing a firearm? So if you guys got a pollster firearm that's not being displayed in a threatening manner. So you are absolutely right that they're completely on their swim later. Wrong with that? It's whereas I'm concerned they're violating section 11 68.9 32. In which that they're attempting by means of a corrupt means. In other words, they don't have the authority to be old, too. I'll make this one. Either directly or indirectly into influence of elector and giving his or her vote. Along with that section, 618 25. Every elector is privileged to arrest while going to attending in returning for elections in all cases, except for treason, felony or breach of the peace. And the person carrying a firearm in a holster is not doing it for threaten those. Those are such great points, Paul and do you agree that that there's good intent here, But it's misplaced because they don't have the authority. They think they haven't can I point out we have gun free zones. Schools and churches. So if the polling place is in that location, it was already covered. Right over there, actually. Is you ever concealed pistol license? You can open it. Terry in the ozone. Correct, And they made clear that the concealed carry is not concealed. Carry is not covered in this fourth for those very reasons, or at least and they may have a grey area there is well because because you've gotta CPL. They don't want to see that weapon, but I got to point out yet again. Those gun free zones were created by local city Council's or.

"It's been a crazy time news wise and otherwise with the obvious, and what really needs to be underscored, is the incredible police work that happened before our very eyes and ears. With the F B I and various federal agencies and closer to home, our fabulous Michigan state police and other local law enforcement agencies. Breaking up a plan to at the very least, kidnap our governor and Mohr. So I want to take this moment to have said it on the air A number of times. I want to say it to Michigan State police Lieutenant Mike Shaw, who is our go to guy. And the guy who can communicate with us all kinds of things going on, and I want to say Thank you for the fine police work. It's been a tough year or maybe tough few years for anyone in law enforcement. This is why we don't defund the police or cut their budgets and need to spend more money for the fine police work that the men and women of the Michigan State police, the FBI, the other Federal and local law enforcement agencies have done, Michael. Thank you so much for a great job. Well, thank you. W we really do appreciate that. All right? We appreciate that work part of your everyday duties. What isn't part of it is being concerned. That that group has proclaimed a plan to target and kill police. And I know that all Michigan law enforcement is on high alert after That revelation and that includes our fine Michigan State police Mike So I think this particular reporter when she was writing this story was kind of amazed that there were plots like that. But I think I ran into my first government person back about 96 when I worked at the care opposed, so this isn't something new for law enforcement is something that we keep an eye on. But it's just not these groups. It's all kinds of other groups out there. You only have to turn on the news to see two sheriff's deputies, you know, attacked in their patrol car in California. Oranje places where you blunt force Melchers Goto what they think is a domestic situation where it's actually a gunman waiting to gun down law enforcement when they get there s o. You know, we're very vigilant to that with our local and federal partners. We know that One thing with these groups. They may be far left or far right. But they all have a tendency to not like the police. So you know, it doesn't really matter what side they're on. That seems to be a common problem for us. So we're very vigilant with that. I think there was some there that were rattled. Headline writers are different in the reporters so rattled. We're just prepared sure that things like this are trying Around, not only the state and it's affecting our you know our communities as well. You know, we can sometimes go a day or two without somebody getting in a shooting over somebody not using a turn signal or a domestic dispute. If the Tigers the Lions can win on a bye week, and we just kind of see this kind of Nine being able to communicate about anything anymore, and that concerns us even bored in the threats about, you know, maybe having one of us, so you're constantly evaluating the credibility of any threats against troopers and facilities and all of that, which Which brings me to and I don't want it. I'm not being political about this. I hope it's not a political question. But I have had people asking If there was and people ask the governor for that matter if there was a plan that was known of a certain group in this case, the militia scoping out the capital and talking about Rushing the capital and taking hostages and and worse. Up. Was that something that the Michigan State police even though you're assigned to guarding the governor? Is that something that that you guys knew enough about to To forewarn or alert people at the Capitol. So I think that is, you know something that gets into that Rome that I'm not going to get into politics and different people think everything. We're also responsible for the security at the capital. The Michigan state police is, uh, the Senate house have their own police departments that actually handle inside the chambers. But we're responsible for the Capitol and we have plans in place if something should happen. We haven't had anybody stormed the capital. We've had some people that come up in protest Protest the freedom to work. Days of people are protesting at the Capitol grounds, almost about a different events. So are people up there at the capital of very prepared for anything that should happen up there..

"Alright again, my thanks to Dr Roger Klein, as well as to Dr Todd, who called in and I thought That was an interesting conversation. Let's um Let's move on to an entirely different subject, and that is the 13 individuals who in I guess Michigan, mostly but in other states have been charged in a Bizarre plot a bizarre plot to kidnap the Governor of Michigan, the Democratic governor, Gretchen Wittner. Six were charged in federal court with conspiracy to kidnap the governor. In reaction. What she they viewed as her uncontrolled power. Now, all of this, All of this comes out of the way. Um Governor Whitman. As most governors including our own governor, Charlie Baker, have imposed limitations. Now, first of all, I would like to Play a sound bite of the ringleader. Who apparently, um, is no fan of Donald Trump. He's a right wing. I mean, real right wing. Wack. A doodle name is Brandon Caserta. So, Rob, Listen, played, Captain. Okay. Trump is not your friend dude. And it's It amazes me that people actually like, believe that when he's shown over and over and over again that he's a tyrant. Every single person that works for government is your enemy. So? So? So, this guy apparently was one of the ringleaders who was indicted in These are guys that like to run around in the woods with rifles, okay of guns or whatever explosives. I don't get it Love to know how much time they might have actually spent in the military suspect. In most cases, not little. Not much. Um, Governor Wittner was the subject of this plot. Why she became the subject of plot You do remember they had These these demonstrations at the Michigan State House and Lansing last April in which a lot of people showed up with their weapons on their hips or slung over their shoulders, which was a very disquieting A scene to observe and it seems to me that even in a state like Michigan, which I guess is a right to carry state When you have people showing up at the state house with automatic weapons over their shoulder. You wonder if you and I believe that they actually were able to come inside. The the Michigan State House. So the US attorney announced the charges yesterday and cut to rob Last night, the FBI And Michigan State police arrested six individuals charged in a federal complaint with conspiring to kidnap the governor of Michigan. Gretchen Whitmer. According to the complaint unsealed this morning, Adam Fox Very Croft tie Garbin. Caleb Frank's Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta conspired to kidnap the governor from her vacation home in the western District of Michigan before the number of her election. By the way, Brandon concert or was the guy you heard on the first sound bite of this segment? So I don't know how. Why you would even think That you could kidnap a governor. Who I assume like Massachusetts has State police protection. Um, if it is beyond me now, Governor Wittmer. Has somehow decided that she's going to blame Donald Trump for this. Because of his Unwillingness in her mind, Tio condemn. Hate groups Cut four Rub. Just last week, the president of the United States stood before the American people and refused to condemn awaits supremacists and hate groups. These two Michigan militia groups. Stand back and stand by, he told them. Stand back and stand by. Hate groups heard the president's words, not as a rebuke but is a railing cry is a call to action. Well, I don't know how she knows that. Okay? Andi, I think that she makes a mistake. It was the Trump Justice Department that brought the charges against these buffoons, And it was also the FBI AA, which is an arm of the Justice Department, which actually conducted the investigation. If I was Governor Whitner, I would be very thankful..

"The I Heart radio app. Welcome to Friday, which is going to be a good day, right? I'm Jennifer Jones, Lee and some of the stories we're watching in the 24 hour news room. L. A County health officer.

Cannot track down those They were close in contact with, Davis says. If you get a call from a contact tracer yur color I d will display 833 area code. So if you get a call, and it says 833 And you've had the cove. It Just probably assume that that is a public health and governor. Newsome is tested negative for Cove in 19. He was tested after a member of his staff caught the virus. Lad 35. It's our Friday chat with House whisper, Dean Sharp. Dean is going to unravel a bit of a mystery for us. It's a mystery that Kind of looms. Over your house, and it's one that you may never have bothered even trying to solve. It's the mystery of textiles. I know I didn't even know that there was a mystery behind textiles. But you know, what do you really know about your rugs, drapes and carpets. What do we need to know? We'll find out right now. Let's say good morning to ABC is crime and terrorism analysts all kidding aside, Brad now this was a mystery that was solved before it became an issue. But how scary for the governor of Michigan? Jennifer You also said the FBI did not know about this that they would have attempted to kidnap her. Now I can envision a huge shootout with the Michigan State police at her summer home in Ah in northern Michigan. On they may or may not have been successful with the point being. These guys put a lot of time and energy into surveillance of the summer home blueprints of the property movements of the neighbors. They practice field training exercises where they built IEDs planned how they would actually attack the house. Take her to some remote location in Wisconsin and quote unquote try her for treason. And I'm going to guess if they got that far would execute her so This is serious stuff. Um, and the big concern is who else is out there that have similar thoughts or views that they want to carry out. Yeah. Okay. So you right before we even started talking with you. I think you were talking before. We actually had your sound on with us. So 13 people have been charged in this plot to kidnap Governor Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. What do we know about these 13, who have been charged It is primarily part of quote unquote a militia. I've not seen. You know an actual name, but it doesn't matter because my sense I was reading the affidavit, The proble cause affidavit affidavit that they did recruit other sort of like minded people. They needed more folks. I mean, they didn't even talk about storming the statehouse with weapons and IEDs and blowing up police cars. I mean, some of this is probably fanciful. Uh, but but the point being, they were thinking about doing it. And so you've got this like minded groups that believe basically that the Constitution is not being correctly. Uh, used and that the governor Whitmer and I have some other people are not using it the way they want it used, And so they think that she is to use their words treasonous. Um, it kind of goes with and you talked about this a little bit. Sovereign citizens, Oath keepers. People believe that the Constitution is a document. It basically says that people at the local level Is really the ultimate authority and anything beyond that. Um, is not legitimate. Sovereign citizens believe they don't have to pay taxes or do anything federally now and a ce far as the actual then unraveling of this plot. What was what was the turning point in this or how did the FBI end up stumbling on this one? So a couple different ways They had picked up some information about this group. I think the this monitor in social media Then there's two other components. One is that a member of the militia came to them and said that he was concerned about this plot to harm the governor. Ah, And so I think they turned him into a source and he wore body wire to a number of these media. So they have these guys talking on tape. The other is that a police department that did name it. Somebody from the department came to the FBI and said, Look, parts of this group. That are trying to locate the home address of police officers. I assume to go harm them.

"Celebrating her birthday. I won't tell you her age, I will merely say I was 10. When she was born. Already. We've talked about this before Heavy birthday, Allison. By the way, I've mentioned it a few times today. I don't know if she's listening or not. We have different politics. If you know what I'm saying. I think you know what I'm saying anyway. We've talked about this before. And that is, um People seem to be nuts. On the roads. But you've seen it. I've seen it. There's a lot of aggression. There's on off a lot of speeding. There are a lot of people who all of a sudden pull up to your rear in your car. You're not even in the passing lane and they feel you should be going faster. Then the five or even 10 miles an hour over the speed limit. That's not fast enough for them. It's crazy out there. And you can take that from our own observations. Or you can take it from Also the professionals and the professionals, led by Michigan State police Lieutenant Mike Shaw, who's on the other end of our line right now, and it's it's It's challenging, to say the least out on the road right now, Michael It is challenging. We've seen quite a bit. I don't know if somebody was trying to help me out with my interview today with just over the weekend on one of our troopers was working radar right now. 96 Inkster. And caught a black charger doing 146 miles an hour, 100. 146 and the sad part about that is, you know it's ah 19 year old drivers, so we know that they're not very good at driving. Yet the vehicle was unregistered and had no one So, um, way we took possession of that car and he got a pretty good ticket for reckless driving, And now he's gonna have to deal with some of the repercussions of that as well. The good part about it is nobody was killed in that incident. But even this year with pandemic and people basically staying at home between March and May We've seen 60 more deaths on our freeway system in our roadways here in Michigan, then we have last year, so not only is speeding a problem, but ah, lot of the other driving behaviors out there from tailgating is you mentioned aggressive driving, not wearing their seatbelts. We've had numerous one vehicle crashes where people were to survive that they just had a belt on. I work backwards. I can't believe they're still people who don't wear seat belts with all of the information out there, proving You know, and people used to try to use to try to tell the story. Yeah, but my uncle knew somebody who wore seat belt. If they hadn't been worrying that seatbelt, they'd still be alive today. That's ridiculous. Ask a professional like any Michigan state police trooper or any other fine law enforcement person who has to sadly come upon these accidents with dead people. And you're going to see a lot fewer dead people when they're wearing their seat belts than otherwise. But meanwhile, Lieutenant Mike Shaw, Michigan state police, I was going to say that I've been reading about other states. Where they've had farm or tickets where people are exceeding 100 MPH than ever before. But 146 MPH is so incredibly foolish and dangerous. It's got nothing to do You say it's a 19 year old. He doesn't have a great driving skill. That's true because he doesn't have very much experience. But Certainly an experienced driver also understands. Then at 146 MPH. You can't make up for the mistakes People around. You make And so no matter how great a driver you think you are not Everybody out. There is as great as you are. And at 146 MPH. There's not a lot of margin for error. And that's part of the other problem. So I know you've had a lot a lot of people going fast, cause I'm out there and I see how fast people are going and how You know, it's hard to even just keep up with some of that traffic. What do we do, Trooper? What? What in the world do we do we We don't wantto say to thee. The people who pull us over. But Officer I was just keeping up with traffic because I'm sure you've heard that a million times. Wait. It's not an excuse and and a lot of it is. You know, what can we do ourselves is that you know, doing the pee them and like you're supposed to increasing that driving distance wearing your boat, all those things that you can do it. Hopefully it shows somebody else We know that there's people out there. They're going that our poor drivers regardless of what they think of their mind, like you said. 100 46 Miles an hour. There's a lot of people that can't handle that speed. Regardless of how good of a driver they think they are that quite a bit or some excuses of that as well. I think they're in the pandemic when the roadways opened up. A lot of people thought that there weren't police out there. And we never changed our patrolling policies or anything like that. We were still not there. Everything still, you know, doing what we're You know our troopers they're supposed to be doing out there by now. That traffic is kind of getting back to normal. They really can't drive that well, and we're starting to see it And there was traffic lanes to so we just tell people Hill Do the speed limit in the state to the right side of the road. Be safe and don't worry about the other person, And I think that's where we see. A lot of the aggressive takeover is we always feel like sometimes we gotta, you know, tell other people what they're doing wrong or we stay in the left lane. Even though somebody's tail enough to prove a point to get out of the way and let us go. We'll We'll catch him. We'll We'll give him that ticket for you and you don't have to worry about it. Yeah, With all due respect, you are not the law out there. Don't try to be ah, Associate Deputy or whatever. You should not ride in the passing lane. At the speed limit you actually these days you shouldn't be riding in the passing lane other than to pass and and that That's good advice there, too. Anything else, Lieutenant, we need to know before we let you go. A couple of things to take a look at our new transparency website Way release out last Friday. I got a lot of good information on there for the public is far and you know what we do is a department our manpower. Our strengths are are different policies and procedures.

Facial Recognition Leads To False Arrest Of Black Man
"Now there's a technology out there that I bet would have benefited from having ethics built into it from the beginning, rather than putting it into the hands of people and finding out. Oh, wait, there are problems with it, and that technology is facial recognition In fact, Boston has joined cities like San, Francisco Oakland California and Cambridge Massachusetts in prohibiting the use of facial recognition technology for most municipal uses. They made exceptions for unlocking your phone or using facial recognition to preserve privacy in in which case the facial recognition software is just removing faces. It doesn't have to tell you who they are basically if it's not identifying you or just looking for faces, you can't use it. Cities are banning facial recognition over the fears of its misuse. All they shall recognition della technology has some rate of false identification, and that's a higher rate among people with darker skin. Since machine learning is often trained on data sets of predominantly lighter skinned people. In fact, we now have an example of that in the real world, the ACLU of Michigan has lodged a complaint in Detroit Wednesday alleging that a black man spent thirty hours in custody after facial recognition software mistakenly matched him with a shoplifting suspect. He is no longer suspected of being the shoplifter, but he had this be under arrest for thirty hours before they realized they had the wrong person. The match was made in facial recognition from the Michigan. State polices digital image analysis section, which uses software from rank, one computing, not using Microsoft not using Amazon, not using any of the big ones like IBM. Who are all saying well? We're going to hold off using somebody else. Michigan police rank one guidelines do say that arrests should not be made on the basis of facial recognition, and it's unclear at this point. If the police had other evidence again other evidence, that was wrong, but other evidence that may of pointed and giving them to reason to suspect this man but the ACLU says it doesn't matter. You shouldn't have been using facial recognition in this arrest because it wasn't him. The worry I would have always had about this sort of thing is if they make it too much of a factor in the arrest too much of the reason why you're arresting them or too much of the burden of proof is on his on the match that they got from facial recognition. Them what would happen is I. Don't know I'd end up. Some actor who looks like me would get in trouble for doing a terrible thing, and then I would suddenly be a database because I kind of looked like that guy. They got a false positive because I look like him. was gonNA use an exact example, but I'm not going to want to get myself in trouble, but look there's an actor I look like because all I'm saying anyway, the point is. Yeah I. Don't want I. Don't want that to be i. mean it makes these things these things they get developed and make sense as like supporting arguments right like if if you've got other evidence that points to the thing, and you say well, and also there's the facial recognition. It's not the. But it's this other thing. We gotta figure out where that is yeah I. Mean that's I mean at the very least. Yes, supporting something else the fact that the police in Michigan and also ranked one which makes the software have guidelines saying well, this should happen based on facial recognition. There may be other you know parameters here, and like you said Tom that that's not necessarily known, but it was just facial recognition. I mean you can't just have a guideline. Sane probably shouldn't do that. It's not enough information it should be. You legally cannot do that and if you do that, you're in trouble. Yeah, I mean. If if the case is, they just use facial recognition to bring the guy in. Then it becomes a question of. Why didn't you follow the guidelines? Should the guidelines be law That is one aspect of this conversation. If they say look facial recognition just pointed us to the guy. And then we found out he was in the store that day he was driving a car that fit the description of. Of the shoplifter, you know it was just a case of mistaken identity because he fit, the description could have happened to anybody. That's still a problem because my guess is. If it weren't for facial recognition, they wouldn't have bothered this person. They would have gone. They wouldn't have made him stay in a jail cell for thirty hours. They wouldn't have arrested him in front of his wife and two little daughters. You can say well okay, but how often does that happen? I think we're all very clear that for black people and happens all too often, and having another instance of it certainly isn't helping. Yeah, to be to be to have been somewhere. You know at a at A. Coincidental time yeah, and maybe driving a similar car, and that sort of thing it's like okay. Well suspects. Get questioned all the time and you know if they're not the right person or it's. It's deemed that they they aren't guilty. After all, that's something that were used to. That happens all the time, but yeah, the whole facial recognition thing is like if that's sort of the the nail in the coffin of like well, we got these three things you know. Where were you at three PM? That Dan? Oh, you just happened to. To look a lot like this. Other person must be i. mean that's that's. That's a real problem. Well, that's where the guidelines are not being violated right, but the fact that you had the facial recognition like you said Dow becomes the the Khuda gross at to say like we might have let the guy go to say well. Don't leave town. You're a person of interest, but instead we had the facial recognition that may have given them the confidence to like. Let's just arrest. Him could be other things to of course, yeah.

"Michigan state police, and we check in with Lieutenant Mike Shaw on this very slippery Wednesday morning, Lieutenant good morning to you. We've been telling people to take it easy 'cause it's slippery out there. Oh, that's my macho for the last four or five years since I've been to public information officer when we know the weather's coming out there and freezing drizzle for us is always the worst because it doesn't look slippery. So people think that we don't know what we're talking about. Then they leave late. They drive too fast and too close to the car in front of them. And we have the amount of crashes that we've been seeing overnight. Well, tell me how many you've been seeing overnight because certainly we're on the road early. And we see a lot of cars turned in the wrong direction. So we know they've had a complete three sixty spin. But tell me how bad it's been. So it kind of depends where you're at. It's some of our neighborhoods that we patrol in northern Oakland County. It hasn't been too bad on the freeway system. We've had some areas that we've had to close I just because of the amount of crashes are out there and make it safer. Unfortunately, we talk about slowing down and moving over. We've had a truecar hit a salt truck kit and a courtesy van hit all overnight though. Fortunately, no injuries. They either the the party that lost control or the trooper. Salt driver, the curse courtesy van driver. That's easy for me to say guess. Out there. To get out there. So again, you know, it's a it's a simple things to do leave early for one to slow it down. You you need to be able to control your car and the third one. I think the most important one is don't get so close to everybody that's in front of you. Because if you have to jam on your breaks because you're too close to the car in front of you. That's what turns your your car and just lying around and boozing control and the last big part too. If you're one of those four wheel drive type of people just remember nice, it becomes four wheel slide. So you're no, you're no better off. We were talking about that off the air earlier, more and more people have pickup trucks. And then if they're smart in this part of the world you put four wheel drive on it. But that is meaningless on glare ice black ice. All of this stuff. Just, you know, take your time be careful out there and you'll be just fine. There's thousands of motorists troopers officers ambush riser driving around all today. And none of them have gotten in the crash. So it's definitely the usually the fault of the person that loses control the car that that made them end up in the ditch or somewhere else in stay off the brakes because the break you go to the break. You're starting to be in big trouble. Which is why you're suggesting to have a lot of space between the cars in front of you. We see that every day. No matter what I think anybody that's been on any of our Detroit freeway system during rush hour. We'll see somebody has to dart off onto the shoulder or Jared off into another lane because they were just too close to the vehicle in front of them to be able to stop at a little bit of freezing drizzle out there. And it makes it a lot worse. Yes, sir. Thank you for your help anything else, we need to know, Mike. Nope. Ever just again slowdowns. That's that's the best way to get to work today. Works going to be there. No matter what. So that's. And get there safely. That's the truth work will still be there. No matter. What? Thank you, sir already. You're welcome. Michigan state police Lieutenant Mike Shaw with the official words lowdown be carefully. It is slippery out there. They've been a lot of accidents. And there will be more.
