Caller Vocalizes Their Right to Ask Questions About Elections

"I agree with everything you said about the elections I've been watching them since 1976. The day the night of the election when they shut down in Atlanta and they sat down in Pennsylvania and a lot of my talk at night our time. I knew there was something wrong. But I have a right to feel that way. I have a right and I'm so sick and I'm so fed up with this empty suit of a president telling me I'm a semi fascist. I am a middle aged soon to be older, woman who's just trying to do right. Right. And she writes in this world. And I am so set up with the gaslighting. I'm so set up with January 6th. I think it was Andrea Mitchell. I think maybe last Sunday, I saw snippets goes on CSN BC, watch this quote. Well, this talk Pelosi thing happened because of January 6th. Oh my God, you guys grow up. Do you remember what happened the summer of 2020? Do you know what they did to our city in Minneapolis? I won't go in Minneapolis anymore. I used to work there. I am career there. I was there all the time. I won't step foot in it. And I tell everybody not to go there. And then a woman who is going to do a convention there. I don't go to Minneapolis. Right. Hey, Julie, can I say something about what you pointed out about Andrea Mitchell trying to connect the Pelosi attack to January 6th? Forget Andrea Mitchell. You know who did it last night? Joe Biden. The president of the United States. It's hard. What about connecting January 6th to the summer of 2020? Doesn't anybody understand that maybe those people who were in D.C. were so frustrated watching what happened in Minneapolis and in DCD for that and in Portland and in Seattle and nobody talks about that. What about how they must have been feeling? Watching this happen to our country and our quote great leaders who love to gaslight us. And yet everything's about January 6th.

Jim Schultz: We Have to Prosecute Violent Crimes Again

"Interesting as an outsider I have been in Minnesota much But that said Minneapolis St. Paul at least from the outside you know I'm from Philly used to be viewed as pretty safe a couple of cities there that were under control And then all of a sudden it blows up Yeah And how do you address that sort of thing Yeah yeah I mean on the wake of the murder of George Floyd we had incredible recklessness from our states leadership They sat on their hands while Minneapolis and St. Paul burned They just sat idly failed to call the National Guard in a timely manner Said messages that it was acceptable to riot and otherwise And now we're living through the consequences of it And so to address it we've got to do a few things And it starts with actually prosecuting violent crime again And I mean we've had this revolving door where criminals are not held accountable for their actions And we can't have that Criminals have to know if you can answer serious crime You're going to spend serious time in prison And right now they don't feel that way So that we're going to do that from the AG's office We're going to actually get back to having consequences for criminals And number two we've got to get back to supporting law enforcement It's just absolutely outrageous The defund the police movement So absolutely reckless And we've got to ensure we're supporting law enforcement making sure they have the resources they need The answer to extraordinary increases in violent crime should not have been to he's on the police It should have been at to ask how much more resources do they need to ensure that we can keep our communities safe So we've got to we've got to support them and we have to right now by virtue of this recklessness coming from so many different quarters whether it be fellows in or you'll find Omar or other far left extremists we've really undermined the morale of police all around the country And we've emboldened criminals And we have to we have to reverse that reset the tone where we're again going to insist that people who do commit crime You could do have consequences

Jim Schultz: The Ground Game Is Great in Minnesota

"We're talking to Jim Schultz he's running for attorney general in Minnesota against Keith Ellison Keith Ellison really is sort of the poster guy for this radical view of criminal justice which is justice for criminals And it's had dire consequences not just for Minneapolis St. Paul but for the entire state of Minnesota and you have an enormous influence on these local prosecutors these DAs as we saw with Keith Ellison himself how does he say the latest poll says your 5 points ahead How is the money going How's the ground game Well it's great It's great On the money side we'll raise dramatically more than any candidate for Minnesota attorney general and the Republican side in history So we've got the resources we need to be to have a really big presence on TV There's lots of outside groups who are also spending in the race The Republican attorney general's association and others And so that's great The ground game is great as well I mean people are people are energized I mean you see this all around the country where Republicans are fed up with the Biden administration set up in Minnesota with our far left leadership here And so people are animated whether it be making phone calls knocking on doors I mean they know that Keith Allison as you point out Mark as extreme as they come This is a guy who you represented a man implicated in the killing of a cop in the 90s and has been you've got behind every far left extremist caused in the course of his career And so minnesotans know that we need change in this in this office And so there are people really really excited about the process prospect of making history here As I mentioned at the beginning over 50 years that we've had Democrat attorney generals in the state of Minnesota and people are very excited about the path here to turning that around

Your Market Recap for the Week

"Let's actually recap this week, shall we? When it comes to markets the beginning of the week saw some serious excitement. We even had the nerve to ask if we were in store for another October. Bitcoin hit 20,000 for the first time in three weeks. Stocks had two back to back bonkers rally days in a row, but many out there had the feeling that it might not really be based on, well, much of anything. Instead, it seemed like it was part of a narrative mini cycle that we've seen over and over for the last few months. That cycle is step one. Markets get excited about the idea of a fed pivot. The reason could be anything. It could be rumors of decreasing inflation, it could be dovish interpretations of fed statements. It could also be sheer utter boredom. Whatever the case the result is the same. First, a teeny tiny little bear market rally, and then step two, the fed says, hey guys, stop getting ahead of yourselves and dispatches a slew of officials to slap markets into line. Usually after that, there's some new piece of data that surfaces that totally reinforces the point the fed was making, which leads us to step four, market depression sets in again and the cycle starts anew. That is basically exactly what we saw this week after all of that optimism and excitement at the beginning, a set of fed speakers were trotted out to disavow us of our hopeful spirits. Joe wiesenthal, the host at odd lots on Bloomberg, shared the headline, kashkari, we are quite a ways away from a pause in rate hikes and added, this is what you get for piling back into stocks this week. So on Thursday, Minneapolis fed president Neil kashkari spoke directly to the prospect of a fed pivot anytime soon. He said, we have more work to do. Until I see some evidence that underlying inflation has solidly peaked and is hopefully headed back down, I'm not ready to declare a pause. I think we're quite a ways away from a pause. At one time viewed among the most dovish members of the FOMC, kashkari has turned decidedly hawkish in recent months. When addressing the downturn in financial markets, he reiterated the lack of concern at the fed. Quote, I fully expect that there are going to be some losses and there are going to be some failures around the global economy as we transition to a higher interest rate environment, and that's the nature of capitalism.

In America, Yu Can Accomplish Anything

"The first topic it was three pillars that I focused on in this speech for a nonprofit organization called take charge. One of the organization out in Minneapolis, but at this event, they asked me to keynote speak and I was trying to get in my mind, what should I talk about? What are the key elements that I think are affecting America and dispensation of time? And it's such a time as this is what the Bible would say. But I had three things that I wanted to talk about. The first one is that all that we see from police reform, all that we see from defund the police. All this stuff is all rooted in a lie. It all came from a line. It all came from a freaking lie. Not rooted in truth, not rooted in any real evidence, not not in any evidence due to research, not any evidence due to people's firsthand knowledge of these incidents. A complete lie. The second one is fatherless homes. I know that people talk about it a lot, but you just wait until I give you some of the stats that I had researched. And you will understand why a lot of people are speaking about fatherless homes and telling you time and time and time again that it is an incredible issue in our country that we're facing today that if we can fix if we can make right, we will see a tremendous change in America. We see a tremendous change in inner city communities. And the last pillar of concept was that you can be whatever you want to be in the United States of America. If you work hard, if you put God first and you know, if you have enough faith to believe, you can accomplish anything. Your color is not an obstruction. You know, your background is not necessarily an inevitable obstruction. If you put in the work and you believe in yourself, you put God first and everything that you do, you can accomplish great things, no matter where you start from. IE, Ben Carson and I can name a whole bunch of more people that have had that experience.

Why Congressman Jason Lewis Wrote Political Book 'Party Animal'

"What brought you to write the book and what are you trying to communicate in? Well, you're on judiciary, ranking members. So you know all about how we weaponize the bottles of the bureaucracy. And that hit me between the eyes in the 115th. I started thinking about this. And then just the craziness that was happening with the Trump, starting with the inauguration, and you were talking about people protesting. I had protesters on my front lawn. You and I were being demagogue over the American healthcare act, which was a good piece of legislation. And I thought, this is getting out of control. And I'm afraid that if you let the left right history, you're never going to learn from. And that's what was happening already with CNN going after every Republican and it was getting out of hand. But I think the epiphany for me was, you know, if you're not on the intelligence committee, you don't get to see the Intel until they say, okay, members can come over and view this. And it was when we did that and trudged over to the capitol visitor center and looked at this stuff and all I remember Doug is sitting there going, is this all there is. Is this? And we were consumed for two years. It was thwarting our ability to move legislation. The media were Gaga over this line. Just absolute line. Trump is going to be indicted tomorrow. He's a Russian asset. Now there was a Trump Tower meeting. All of which proved to be a lie. And I thought, okay, I'm going to start taking a journal. And so I started writing a journal. And what happened was that started to continue through three campaign cycles, 16, 18, and 20. Well, then 20 came around, I'm the Senate nominee, and we are locked down except for a rioters in Minneapolis. The third precinct was broke was burnt to the ground, talking about destroying government property, right? And it was so orwellian, I continued with these journals, and so now, in 2021, at this all these journals and you know what it's like to write a book, you got to put it in readable fashion. So I found a cabin in the Minnesota northwoods and for a year and a half, I just hunkered down and wrote basically a history of how we got to the point where we'd weaponize the government on behalf of one party.

Doug Sits Down With Former Congressman Jason Lewis of Minnesota

"Us a little bit about your background and then what, you know, what staircase you fell down to say, I need to run for Congress, you know? Well, you do, I was in the airport the other day and somebody came up to me, and said, I know you, then you used to fill in for Russia and you were in Congress for a while and I said, yep, that's me and they said, whatever happened to you anyway. We all get those. Well, look, I grew up in a small business family. My mom was from north Minneapolis. My dad was from Iowa. We settled in the Hawkeye state, but Minnesota was the second home. So when I fell into talk radio after graduate school, I had an opportunity to go home to Minneapolis and St. Paul, I did. And that was in the early 90s and raised my two daughters here for 30 years. Loved it. Got into radio. It was fortunate enough to hit the timing was good, telling them for rush and had my own syndicated show for a while. But at some point, Doug, you know what it's like, you can be a commentator so long, but after a while, you got to put your money where your mouth is and you want to get on the field and play. Because the only way to really change things is to vote for them. So I thought, in most, by the way, most commentators won't talk most talk show hosts don't do that because they can demagogue your previous comments like Supreme Court Justices. And I knew that would happen with me and it did with CNN and all the rest. But I didn't really care. I just said, look, I want to do something. And I was fortunate to come into Congress with a new president when we really had an opportunity to do things and we did. But it was really just more of an angst about, look, you can talk all day long, but at some point, you know, suit up, get in the game. And so I did do that and served. I thought in one of the more consequential terms of Congress, and then I ran for the U.S. Senate alongside the president here in Minnesota, and two years ago and October, we were neck and neck with Tina Smith, who was the Democrat, I would say from Minnesota, but really she represents Planned Parenthood. Her former employer. But I felt that we were going to win Minnesota. I really felt the president went. And we did great. I collected more votes than any other statewide candidate in Minnesota history. We outperformed the top of the ticket by two points, but we had 1.9 million absentee ballots at 60% of the total Minnesota vote gained by mail.

Democrats Pass Fake Police Bills

"If you're watching the Salem news channel, the first thing that came up were the fake police bills that the Democrats passed yesterday. Completely fake, they passed four police bills completely fake, Brett asked me about them, cut 29. It's a real question about whether the Senate moves forward with this bill or not. It's obvious precarious to start having these discussions with progressive Democrats and talking about defunding or the like just weeks before the election. I think it was a bad move by the Democrats. It's the same dean Phillips and the like minded Democrats here report led in from Minnesota voting begins in Minnesota tomorrow. In the third congressional district, so called moderate dean Phillips is being challenged by, for example, by Tom wyler, some reader turned first time congressional candidate wherever he goes, while her talks about crime in fentanyl. Dean Phillips has spent all month negotiating with squad, these radical members to try and pretend that they are tough on crime. Well, it doesn't do anything about fentanyl. Doesn't do anything about the border doesn't do anything about the burnout areas of Minneapolis. I think it is shouting into the wind and the Democrats would have been better off to spend their time on the ground talking to voters about fentanyl and the border and promising to do something next time. And they hadn't done any of that. And so they passed a bunch of bills and they wasted a bunch of time and time and Tom weiler is still a much better candidate than dean Phillips in Minnesota start voting today vote for wyler vote for all the Republicans

Ex-Minneapolis Officer Sentenced in George Floyd's Death

"When you think you've done nothing wrong and that you certainly haven't done anything to deserve conviction, you can't take a chance. On all these years because he already had the federal sentence that he's serving. So to have the opportunity to take a plea deal and judge Peter Cahill has agreed to accept the plea deal and that he will sentence lane under the guidelines saying because he has accepted responsibility for his role in the death of George Floyd and he'll be able to serve that I think many of you know this, but let me just say it to get it out there. You can serve based on decisions made by various courts. You could be given multiple terms that either can be served consecutively or they can be served concurrently. One is very bad news. That means you serve all these years and then when you get done serving the first one, the second one starts after that. That's obviously disastrous if you are the person that has been sentenced to that type of sentence. He's been given a sentence on this one or will be the judges agreed that he will. Let him serve at the same time. So it's almost impossible. Other than principle, which obviously matters a whole lot, but we are living in a very dystopian crazy time, but it does matter, principle matters, but at the same time, if you're already serving three years for the one charge and you have the opportunity to serve this in the form of a plea agreement and you get to serve it at the exact same time, most people are going to take that deal. And in fact, the former officer lane is going to take that deal. So

Who Will Win the Seat in Minnesota's 3rd District?

"Let's tell people first for the third district is in Minnesota who you're running against and how the race stands. Well, the third district in Minnesota is the western suburbs basically of Minneapolis. I'm running against congressman dean Phillips, a self proclaimed moderate who's voted 100% of the time with President Biden and speaker Pelosi and their failed agenda. And it's a suburban district that actually was Republican for about 50 straight years. And so four years ago, congressman Phillips pulled one out of the hat and brought it over to the democratic side, but it's a district that I think is ready for ready for the Republicans to take back. It's a business centric district with a line of sort of pragmatic independent voters at its core. Along with that conservative base and the two issues that are really impacting obviously all minnesotans and all Americans inflation and crime, the 40% of those in the district to identify as independent definitely believe that conservative principles are the way to attack those two issues affecting all Americans. So I think we're in great shape. This November 8th to get a victory up there in Minnesota's third district and bring conservative Midwestern values to D.C. to represent the great folks in Minnesota.

Also, I think he should send some flowers to Rick Scott, who has basically said Republicans want to blow up social security and Medicare. Yes. The guy in charge of elected Republicans in the Senate, Rick Scott of Florida, proposed a plan. I wish I had enough copies to hand, but go online and look at it. I really mean this is serious because they're going to make it hard for you to believe. Proposed a plan requiring Congress to vote on the future of social reauthorization. And I want to remind you, you paid for your social security. Every single paycheck from the time you're a kid, you paid for it. So every 5 years, concrete gets to vote, change, cut, reducer, a limited entirety of social security. Also, we mentioned Ron Johnson, liberal helper. Here we go. Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsin. As my mother would say, God love him. He thinks 5 years is too long to wait. He wants to put the vote social security Medicare on the chopping block. Every single year. Let me remind you all again, you paid for social security. You paid for Medicare. It's taken out of every single one of your paychecks. These guys never give up. Well, guess what? We're not going to give up either. Okay. All right. Mark Brandon. Doc Brandon. Carlos, what's going on? Is there a think tank over there on how they can help Democrats with a blue suit? A national ban on abortion. Right. There used to be a little devil now. It's just like, no more. Take away the social security to it. Do it now. Wow. That's like a good idea. Yeah. Right. I feel like they're being the biggest liberal helpers ever. And it's magical. And they're just fighting amongst themselves, right? Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and Roger Stone hates Wendy Graham and it's fantastic. Big mega rats fight fight fight. Equally awful, yes.

I just wanted to say that. Oh, I'm sorry. What now? Both parties are the same. Are they exactly the same? Yeah, nothing to see here. Both according to this. Yeah, thank you. Okay, what is it that the queen is laying in state now? Her funeral is Monday. Yes, she's a Westminster. She is still dead. That remains. She's not a Trump's golf course. I got confused with the name. No, no. Westminster. She's really emotional. She will not be buried in any of Trump's golf courses. As far as we know. This has got some documents to hide. Right. Maybe he's stuffed him in her crown last time. So I don't know. Okay. I don't QAnon. I don't, okay. PolitiFact has dismissed a conspiracy theory that the royal family are part of a line of reptiles. From the constellation Draco, and that they have reptilian blood. That's the one dog junior just killed in that tweet or photo. I saw him sitting on top of one. I thought that was Kimberly Guilfoyle. Okay. No. Yeah, that is a mouth. That's Kimberly Guilfoyle black. That's what she's coming out for the general sex or orals? That's her way of saying the best is yet to come. I guess. Does anyone down junior is more man than I give him credit for? Because if he could take that oncoming and okay. So Don Junior would be the best that is yet to come. Yeah. I just think I'm gonna burn. You said that out loud. Okay, I'm sorry. I need to debunk the latest QAnon Queen Elizabeth. Okay, PolitiFact has had to debunk Queen Elizabeth did not die before September 8th and her death was part of a dark conspiracy involving pedophilia or child trafficking something. Prince was not sacrificed in 2016 when he died on the queen's 90th birthday that year and that he had been put to death as a birthday gift. Like prince, as in. Yes, for instance. As in. Let's go crazy. Right. Yes, was not like Prince Andrew. Look to death as a birthday gift to Queen Elizabeth on her 90th birthday. Why? Why? I want him killed. He's not, he's just named princess. He's not in the royal prince. He's not real. He's not in the line of secession. You've killed the wrong prince. This is the only purple rain. That's not who I meant. I meant OJ, perhaps I've said too much. But his name is prince. And he is fine. Yeah, I don't. Okay. Queen Elizabeth also did not die from the COVID vaccine. Nope. And she was not shot and killed in Detroit. Wait, what? That was Detroit? I'm going to. I won't be needing security. She was going to Paisley park to see prince. That's when Minneapolis. That's in Minneapolis. It's not Detroit. He's on her way. My ticket to Detroit. Now I'm in the wrong area. I have connection. You have to do a layover. Prince is grave, who was killed at for my birthday. Now I've been Detroit. Who booked me to Motown? She missed her connection. Oh, I've been shot. I'm going to see if they have a pedophilia pizza parlor Detroit. I don't help me help mummy. What, why? Do people I don't know. We've always conspiracy theorists, but this is the problem. The former president of the United States just basically put his stamp of approval on this whole crazy cult. Well, yeah, he's just digging the scoop deeper into the tide pool to see what else will creatures lie beneath. Like, well, I can't get enough of the crazy crazy. See, I gotta get a crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy. He's just digging for anybody that can be upright and punch a hole or push a button on a voting machine. Okay.

"Don't know if you're doing this. I hope you are. Although in the case of Elon Omar, she is so self destructive on her own you may not have to do this, but I beg Republican candidates. To remind people that when you vote for candidate X or Y or Z who is a Democrat, you are voting for the left, and the progressives and what they are doing to the country and to children into schools into the economy, it's not just Elon Omar. Is that part of your message? Absolutely. Being immune to her brand of identity politics, helping people understand that it is leftism that has completely hijacked liberals in this district. And so getting people to fully understand her voting record, getting people to fully understand that it is literally leftism that has this district on decline. The decision making that has suffered literally suffering under massive leadership failure because of progressive left policy. She has been as your word remarkably ineffective in being a leader and think about this. CD 5 congressional district 5 Minnesota right out of Minneapolis is absolutely ground zero for the defund the police mantra.

Can Republican House Candidate Turn Things Around in Minneapolis?

"Think that you may turn things around. How are you being received? Very well, in fact. What we have is what we call soft Democrats and independents who are recognizing that their families are not safe, that they have to come up with excuses to even come to Minneapolis. And when they do, they are on edge. They're recognizing, again, that they are being stressed out and strung out over the dollar and that they are recognizing that their future is grim. Minneapolis is not at all what it used to be. And we're recognizing now that it's because of the direct leadership and policies and decisions that have been made by progressive leaders. The Minneapolis city council and Ilhan Omar.

"Coming up on 5 minute news. Report shows systemic racism in Minneapolis police department. U.S. Marine vet released by Russia in prisoner exchange. And 6 million Californians ordered to cut water use due to drought. It's Thursday April 28. I'm Anthony Davis. An investigation launched after the execution of George Floyd in 2020, found that the Minneapolis police department has engaged in a pattern of race discrimination for at least the past decade. The Minnesota department of human rights said on Wednesday it will negotiate a court enforceable agreement called a consent decree with the city of Minneapolis to address the long list of problems identified in the report. The agency found that the city and police department have engaged in a pattern or practice of race discrimination in violation of state law. Its report detailed evidence showing disparities in how officers use force stop search arrest and cite people of color, particularly black people compared to white people in similar circumstances. The report said race based policing in Minneapolis is primarily a result of police force culture, officers, supervisors and trainers receive deficient training, which emphasizes a paramilitary approach to policing that results in officers unnecessarily escalating encounters or using inappropriate levels of force, it said. The report also said the department maintains a culture where officers consistently use racist, misogynistic and disrespectful language and are rarely held accountable for it. Without fundamental organizational culture changes, reforming MPD's policies, procedures and trainings will be meaningless the report said. The report found that officers use higher rates of more severe force against black residents than white people in similar circumstances. It found that Minneapolis police officers are more likely to stop vehicles with people of color and indigenous individuals often for minor offenses. Minneapolis police improperly excessively and disproportionately cite black people for disorderly conduct and obstruction of the legal process the report said. It also found that police used covert or fake social media accounts to surveil and engage black individuals, black organizations, and elected officials unrelated to criminal activity without a public safety objective. In contrast, the report said officers did not track and surveil white people in cases unrelated to criminal activity and did not use covert social media accounts to track white supremacist or white nationalist groups. Russia and the United States have carried out an unexpected prisoner exchange in a time of high tensions, trading on Wednesday, a marine veteran jailed by Moscow for a convicted Russian drug trafficker serving a long prison sentence in America. The deal involving Trevor Reed, an American imprisoned for nearly three years, would have been a notable diplomatic maneuver even in times of peace. But it was all the more surprising because it was done as Russia's war with Ukraine has driven relations with the U.S. to their lowest point in decades. On the other end of the swap was constantin yaroshenko, a Russian pilot who'd been serving a 20 year federal sentence for conspiring to smuggle cocaine into the U.S.. Even as the Biden administration trumpeted the swap, it made clear the resolution did not Herald a broader breakthrough between the countries. Russian forces remained determined in their assault on Ukraine. The U.S. and Western Allies continued to impose punishing sanctions and other Americans still remain jailed in Russia. The swap, the culmination of long-standing requests by both countries, as well as private diplomatic wrangling, took place in turkey, where the two planes pulled up side by side, read a 30 year old former marine from Texas, was arrested in the summer of 2019 after Russian authorities said he assaulted an officer while being driven by police to a police station following a night of heavy drinking. Even on Wednesday his parents joy was mitigated by the concern they said they felt about his physical appearance. They were struck by his unsteady gait and how thin he looked as TV footage captured him walking flanked by guards from a van to the jet. Reed was en route back to the U.S., traveling with roger Carson's. The U.S. government special presidential envoy for hostage affairs. Southern California's gigantic water supplier has taken the unprecedented step of requiring about 6 million people to cut their outdoor watering to one day a week as an extended drought plagues the state following another dry winter. The board of the metropolitan water district of Southern California declared a water shortage emergency and is requiring certain cities and water agencies its supplies to implement the cutback on June 1st and enforce it or face hefty fines. We don't have enough water supplies right now to meet normal demand. The water is not there. District spokesperson Rebecca kimmich said. This is unprecedented territory. We've never done anything like this before. The metropolitan water district restrictions apply to areas of Los Angeles, Ventura and San Bernardino counties that rely mostly on state water supplied through the district, including some parts of the city of Los Angeles, the affected areas are primarily urban. But record dry conditions due to climate change, have strained the system, lowering reservoir levels and the state water project, which gets its water from the Sacramento San Joaquin river Delta. The metropolitan water district said that the 2020 and 2021 water years had the least rainfall on record for two consecutive years. California governor Gavin Newsom has asked people statewide to voluntarily reduce their water consumption by 15%,.

"The Stanford Yukon game? Look at that. South Carolina Twitter needs to acknowledge. South Carolina was like, I think clever wins you cut Stanford is going to win the national championship. Where are you on sale for you guys? So I'll go with Stanford, I believe they are what their one point favorite, right? We have a two. I don't know what the bedding is. I think I'll take Stanford to win and to cover. Like you're actually betting money on it. I give my Friends advice. Then I'll heat her. If I tell people, now this one's not going to happen, right? Like, there's no way Stanford covers after I say loud. Especially because we all three picked them. Every time they pick the same thing. I know. But now I feel like I would make music. I'm talking point is that Paige backers has gotten miraculously healthier than what is a three day history game. And it's going to look like is that rack is the health of you. Look at you to dad's stage. That's what we're saying. But I thought it was really interesting like the Becker's right you agree and you know better than any of the four of us. I think she's not a 100% sure. But Paige baker said 90% is still better. And most players in the country. Because she's so good. And so she's so calm that she can hit those kind of tough shots without being like signature moment, crazy plays. You know, we were used to, I guess, more from last year. So that would be my argument, Becker's gonna set a record for final four scoring. I don't know. Yeah, it's not gonna be a high score game. She got like miraculously healthier between the 5 minute mark of the fourth quarter and the fourth quarter. And then she went on, she scored 17 points. Yeah. So I think it's not impossible. It's just like she's gained superhuman strength at this point. Between the fancy state game and going to be in the next marvel. We all picked Stanford. I'll go with, I think the path for you to win, at least if you want to do that is like turn Stanford over. Yeah. It's probably true to reverse against Texas. You can't have more offense to respond to that instead. That gives us a close game that they can turn them over 20 times. You've got a couple of them. One of my favorite stats that our newsletter reader is got today is that this year and last and the tournament, there have been four games, one by a team that has lost the turnover battle by I think ten or more. And Stanford has won three of them. The championship against Arizona last year to this. And I think the other one's Utah Arkansas. I guess was that I forget you won the game. But beyond those four games, I believe, the next up is like three, right now. There was like no one is in the middle there. So it's like remarkable how they're able to overcome that. So you're right. Overcome that I guess you've got. You kind of only had 8 turnovers a double over time gift gets NC state. One, Yukon, of the teams that are left, the one that should hypothetically be the most prepared for Stanford is Yukon because they also run a lot of the they run a lot of the chin sets, a lot of them. He did not like that today. He's like, I'd rather play some of this totally different. Really? Yeah. It's interesting. It's a totally familiar. And then within a wrinkle like toss you out. All right, all right. Yeah, give us a take on South Carolina and Louisville. Well, my biggest take is that I would like to know what aliyah Boston's mantle looks like at home. Which is a way to reinforce it. She had so much hardware. A new one this week. I'm hoping she's going to send out a picture. So yeah, I mean, to me, Lea Boston is going to be amazing. Are we going to see a 80 point game out of South Carolina? What was it a 49? Really good defense. If they score 80 points, I don't know what they're going to tell you about. Yeah. Exactly. So as a result, they're going to keep it close. I think that Louisville's won so many games, I mean, I said it about NC state and it was turned out to be wrong although it was an over time situation. So can we go hang around, you know, Haley men live hit some shots and I mean, ultimately, I think our model favors them by 6 and it's like hard to imagine them losing, but they lost two games this season, so they certainly could. I think everybody talks that they're a juggernaut and they don't realize that there are many, many outcomes, many, many multiverses where they lose. The blueprint is there. The blueprint is there. Thank you to the Miami hurricanes. I know nai, routine is as good defensively as a Miami hurricanes. Or as grittier is tough. But there's the blueprint, right? Like, do you leave the shooters? You hope it works out. For UNC, that didn't really work out because South Carolina hit their threes early. So that's like, I brought this up on the lost podcast. It's going to be really, we're going to know in the first 5 minutes, whether this how the offense is going to have to work for South Carolina. And.

"That you should bring a coat to Minneapolis. Literally cool thing. It's a take about cold because it is real cold here is like 37° and I forgot my coat at my house in Aaron. As did I would say you're not alone. Yeah, nice. Do you feel like that was like left side? Number one priority when I was packing, I was like, coat. That's 'cause you live further north than us in Connecticut. But like you knew you were coming to Minnesota. It's April out into its angle. It was 4 a.m.. That looks like that as well. I was making sure I made it to my airport. As well. She was a rush. I had planned for my dad every day. Aaron has kids. I think you become like when you're a parent, like you're just way more like your kid would never forget their coat. Let's be honest, really what it is is usually when I travel, it's like the whole family and my wife and she's much better about it. Okay, this is really my hot take is at no merry man to be allowed to travel for otherwise because it is impossible for me to figure out what to do at any time of the day. That's about my day. This is my take. I can't function. I'm going to send this to my wife, by the way. But I can't function. I don't forget my code. I'm just walking around aimlessly in Minnesota getting lost. I have fun. I have a great time. I have no idea what's happening. Maybe it's just some idiot. That can also. That's my take for you. Calvin, do you have a basketball tank? I feel like we should have basketball takes on this briefly. Are you changing your assessment of any that you use based on the press conferences? No. Well, because the press conferences didn't talk about basketball, they talk about this stuff. I think about what's going to happen on the court. So what is the one thing that you're sure is going to happen on the court? I am sure that every post player in UConn Stanford is going to follow. On both sides. The Spider-Man pointing me. I love Olivia and Nelson and donus Valerie and Cameron brings foul right. You're a betting guy, which, let's make our over under. Which big is going to have the most minutes in that game Stanford, Yukon? Elliot Edward. Okay. If you're caught fan, I think that's what you hope for. Yeah, no, I mean, I mean, I think there are trouble without either, but a little bit, it does just a little bit different. I mean, it's a brink has been a little bit better. There's a little bit. Like she got one bad call against Texas. If not you would have three files. So it's a fair point. It's a little, it's just getting a little better. I'll go with brick on my question. I was going to say bring to how are we going to put in a moment of around that's frustrating when they take the player out with two fouls in the first quarter? Although I would say maybe Cameron brink is not a bad idea. Yeah. I don't know. I think sometimes yes, but when you know that you're going to be in a close game, do you want to risk not being able to have camera break on the floor when the game's 65 to 68 in the last minute or something? I don't know, I think I would take that risk. It depends if you can trust them to not pick up the fed. We're not there yet with brick. I would say no. No offense. She lost a foul. Yeah. That's like one of your favorite activities. Yeah. Like I thought I'd be like if like what are you guys guys picked up their second in the labor room? They know how to play through it. I think I just think she's going to play a little clearer. Brink is. And she's been crushing it so I'm wearing the Cory, right? It's all gonna depend like who's officiating at how it's appreciated too. That's completely good. Are there you can't get in the Yukon, the Bridgeport whistle again? I can talk about that. I don't remember it's part of the same rep that's in the UCF game that did. So I'm hoping they're not. I love you and they'll send out a 7 fouls against. I'm not saying, but she did have she kicked up her 7 foul in the first overtime. It should lucky for her they ain't. I hopefully it's a well called game. It was zooming in a well officiated game. We are talking about moments. I think Brent could, I think, bring withstand it, I hope. Yeah, to gotcha. So I'm going to have a closing thought maybe, but so who do you got on.

"Minneapolis's again considering sweeping changes to the city's police department, more than a year after the failed push to disband the department in the wake of George Floyd's murder. Residents will vote in November on a ballot question that would change the city's charter and create a Department of public safety, a proposal that has attracted thousands of local supporters but also fierce community opposition as well as national attention and money. Join us now is Roshini Raj Kumar, attorney talk show host and political strategist coach. Good morning, Machinea. How are you? I'm good. How are you, Kevin? I'm doing well. It's nice to check in with you again. It sounds like things in Minneapolis are heating up again. Yeah, we don't ever really seemed to get a break. This has been a very hot topic for the last couple weeks and then on and off since last year, but now the rubber is hitting the road. That ballot measure will be on the November ballot. For those who vote in the city of Minneapolis. I happen to be a resident of Minneapolis personally as well as legally. I'm very much in question about this. I have major questions. I think it Would give a big hole if it passes, and I just want to clarify some of the numbers. You know, Minneapolis proper has about 540,000 people. If you include its suburbs, it's probably a couple million and then Minneapolis and ST Paul er. Considered together and have a metro of about 3.5 to 4 million. So I think the number I saw was 20,000 on this petition for this to go on to the ballot. Well, 20,000 signatures is really not a huge percentage of 530 or 540,000 residents. Plus all the people who come in and out of Minneapolis to work or to visit or to recreate so just giving you that perspective on the numbers. Yes, and walk us through what the what the proposal says in what both sides are saying about it. Right? Well, this really has stemmed from the City Council, which is a 13 member body. And then the mayor sits on the council also, And lately we've seen the mayor and the council have been at odds. But even within the Minneapolis City Council, there are definitely some factions and the faction that is about abolishing police and really wants to limit That the security and the safety the police provide Seems to have taken on a majority vote in the Minneapolis City Council. And I question whether that majority vote on the council really speaks for the majority of Minneapolis people now you know, I have a talk show myself and I have constantly I get barraged by people who do not want the police to go away whether they're calling in or writing me. And so the ethos is really not with the majority of the Minneapolis City Council, which is what they want the rest of the country to believe or the rest of the state to believe, so there have been a couple soul City Council members. When this first started going that were voting against it. The mayor tried and tried to veto anything that the City Council was doing to try to get it on the ballot. So they've had to go to the farthest end of their abilities to even get it on the ballot. It's going to be on the ballot. Now. The site is well, What's the language going to be on the ballot? Will it be clear what you're voting? Yes or no to Personally, I will say, I hope the people of Minneapolis do not vote for this to be taken off of the Minneapolis for the police department to be removed and have this a change to the Minneapolis City charter. But This office of public safety that they're talking about the proponents of this ballot measure. It's very confusing because they've not really given us a visual on who that would be. They say the reporting structure would then be to the city Council. Well, that is very difficult. I mean, you know, in Detroit, you need to know who is in charge. You cannot have a security function reporting to a dozen or more people. It just doesn't make any sense. So what they're trying to do is really take power away from a police chief type person or the mayor. Even And it's just not flying with a lot of residents here, Kevin Yeah, And so if I mean the amount of confusion that would come from having has a set up like that, where, uh, the people in charge are constantly going back to aboard a group of people to try and sort things out, Uh, would would be so frustrating in reality and pulling off. In From a concept standpoint, though, I mean, you guys were in the middle of all of it. People do feel that there needs to be some reform, right? It's just what will that reform look like? Yeah, I don't think anyone's disagreeing that police reform is needed not only receive Minneapolis but all over the country. But really, you can't reform by bashing the police. The police have to be part of any future visual on this any future department. However, this is going to run and when specifically the Minneapolis City Council, those who want this measure When they're talking about a department of public safety and they're saying social workers would go out to things or healthcare workers are different people like that. Well, they're never going to go out to a violent or potentially violent. Seen without a law enforcement officer with them, So I think that a lot of logistics really need to be squared away. I don't know that this is the right time to put this on the measure on the ballot in November until you have other of those logistics squared away. And so I think and then keep in mind Kevin in November. The mayor and the entire City Council go up for reelection. A couple of those people are not running again in a few of what I would call the extreme left on the City Council have not been given the Democratic endorsement. So we have a ranked choice voting system a lot of things up for grabs that some of these very people on the city Council who are trying to get this measure passed. May be voted off it out of office. By the time November comes along, so there are a lot of layers of uncertainty here, and I don't know if the people of Minneapolis and the most vulnerable in Minneapolis want to leave that to the wind. Because what's going to happen is going to have a field day of every criminal element coming out in our city. And what kind of turnout would you expect? It's not a presidential election. It's not the midterm elections do you have as your governor running or now? Yeah, I know the governor will be up next year. So this is really the odd years are when the city of Minneapolis votes for its council, some of the other offices and mayor So there are a few people competing against Mayor Jacob Frye. It's a city where Republicans pretty much not going to get elected, so it will end up being a Democratic mayor. Currently, mayor Fries seems to have the most backing. The most money, even though he had a very rough 2020. After all of the events here and and some of the breakdown in leadership that happened, But the turnout, you know, it's an interesting question. I think people that it probably will be high. I doubt it will be as high as the presidential year. So it's really about getting the vote out. And the people who don't want this measure or wanted to fail really have to get out and vote because the yes, people seem to have the bullhorns right now. And quickly have have things calmed down in the streets. Been quiet as this process is going on, or are things still, uh, getting violent from time to time? We have a bit of a bit of a respite, but there are people there are parts of town uptown Minneapolis, which you and I have talked about in the past..

"Minneapolis Brooklyn Center and other cities have turned to so called credible messenger programs to help try to keep protests peaceful and prevent violence amid an increase in crime. This year, Minneapolis awarded $1 Million to seven community organizations to provide doing that thing with my fingers, positive outreach and support. As it's hell does that even mean this former police officers began going on trial for George Floyd's killing. Reopening 38th in Chicago. With the gaps help rather than police was an exercise in using an alternative method for a delicate operation. It's a nice way of saying it was a failure. Yeah, the approach, which often involves hiring former gang members to intervene among their former comrades to make peace. Is unproven Criminologists say, duh, you think and thus far, groups have little community by an activists have swept swiftly and scornfully rejected them because the money went to the groups and not to the activists. Yep. Yep. Police. Abolitionist groups such as black visions have been fighting for alternative public safety programs since 2017 and by the way, I just want to stop there really quick and we're gonna get to your phone calls here in a moment to 6519895855. They succeeded in getting that Office of violence prevention created going back to 2017. And this rings True to what you were just saying a moment ago, Drew. I remember pre pandemic when we were talking about what seemed to be a growing problem but was still a problem that could be addressed Individuals heading downtown going to sporting events going to the twins going to the Vikings groups of people gangs? That were assaulting individuals on the street. At the time, we were still looking at this from an angle of We need more law enforcement. We need more policing. We can deal with this since then we all know how it's gotten so much worse. But the fact that that group this, uh This abolitionist police group. Black Visions has been around since 2017. And they got that Office of violence prevention created. This is where that organization saw. Hey, here we go. We now have a reason. An excuse. We can capitalize on what has happened here in this horrible incident to perpetuate what it is that we want, which is completely unproven and they're getting it. They're getting the money. They're getting the support even though they have no credible backing or studies to show that anything of what they're proposing. Or have done is going to accomplish what it is that they say they're trying to do and ask yourself this. Since the Office of Violence Prevention has been created, how much violence has been prevented? And I know we're not supposed to actually expect results out of government programs and bureaucracies. I know we're not supposed to actually look at the results were supposed to focus on the good intentions behind everything and ignore the results when they failed. But can we make an exception? Maybe this one time? You know since like, kids are dying and stuff, and people are getting shot all the time, and people are getting carjacked and assaulted and robbed. An actual violence is befalling members are community everything. All day. Can we maybe make an exception and actually look at the results of this office Since it came? Has violence been prevented by the Office of Violence Prevention? They prevented an iota of violence. Can you give me an example of any violence that has been prevented? The overall theme seems to be that violence has gone up since the office was created. So that would indicate that it is. I don't know a failure. Let's go and talk with Bill in Brooklyn Center. Good morning, Bill. Thanks for calling in the justice and drew here on Twin Cities. News Talk. What's your thoughts? Well, let them books and Sunday I used to live in Brooklyn part not too bright. I know that crime is running rampant. There's no real solution out there. Obviously, with city leaders like we have The mayor of booking center is very, very beyond incompetent. Um the idea is you've got is absolutely scary. The community is just falling apart. I mean, this basic laws like going on 30 30 Mile, Arizona passed you on the right side. It's not a four lane road. Yes, there's a We have an article here and thank you for the For the call Bill. Um Brooklyn Park hired this Saint Paul based Wilder Research to evaluate policing, community safety and violence prevention. And during a City council meeting on Monday, the foundation presented its results and now the Brooklyn Park City Council will determine the next steps. This is a Colossal waste. Of taxpayer money and time. Common sense replaces the need for any study. You don't need a wilder organization to come in to examine, you know, the to evaluate policing, community safety and violence prevention. It's not necessary. All that's been done before. That's what gave you what was supposed to be robust Police departments. That's what gave you the standards that which most communities most cities. Big and small. Have that say, You have a population of this size? You need a law enforcement department of this size to protect and serve that particular population that's already been studied. It's been vetted and it's been proven to work. Now. What they're doing is they're just it's wacky wall Walker Manda throwing it up against the wall, seeing if it sticks and wasting a bunch of time and taxpayer dollars in the process. So this article. This reformer article mentions how these groups like a copy, as an example of one will suddenly start working with the police and suddenly start working with the city to try to achieve some objective. Try to achieve some goal. In this instance it was. It was the reopening of 38th in Chicago, and then they immediately get attacked and lambasted by activists who now see them as sellouts who are Basically police without the uniforms. Dina, winner in the reformer writes that violence interruption programs were designed to work in tandem with the police. So it shouldn't be scandalous when a group like a gap or other groups are getting paid by the city. The quote a a woman, Michelle Phelps, an associate professor of sociology, saying the challenges as soon as these groups are getting money. As soon as they are seen as collaborating with city leadership or collaborating with police officer there then discredited among the very same activist circles that have been calling for these kinds of programs. My response to that is those activists circles, then need to be ignored. Yep, they are not to be taken seriously. They should have no seat at the table. They are not there to help. They're not there to try to provide solutions. They are there to disrupt. They are there to agitate and they are there to provoke. And that is it. Okay? And once you realize that about a certain particular activist group or an activist, individual or anything like that, the proper response from city leadership and elected officials is to say clearly you're not interested in finding solutions anymore. So your seat at the table is now going to be given to someone else, and you no longer have a voice in this debate. They're supposed to be a sense of new traveled neutrality and non bias going on here, right? But these violence interrupters aren't neutral. And they have embedded they have embedded bias already in into them. White police are supposed to enforce the letter of the law. They're sworn to protect to serve and protect and be accountable and the way that it breaks down for me. So you either have this Right. You either have a tested robust police department, where you do have circumstances of police misconduct right? Or the occasional aggravated situation in which we have a U. S justice system that has proven itself time and time again. To be productive in dealing with those circumstances. So that's your one choice, Robust Police Department for a city metropolitan area, the size that you have, and you have a justice system in place. If if, if a law enforcement officer abuses their power, or you go the other route where you have this Vilifying and demonizing of law enforcement. You strip down where you don't have enough law enforcement officers and you combine yourself with violence, Interrupters. And what do you get? You get rising crime, A waste of taxpayer dollars more death, destruction of private property Children being shut all in an attempt to stop The random circumstance where an officer might go and abuse their power. You tell me which one is better. Neither are perfect. But I'll tell you I know which one's better is the one where the justice system serves the public, and you have trained law enforcement officers out there of the majority of which are doing their job appropriately. Minneapolis is training another group of street workers dubbed Violence, interrupters to try to intervene and stop violence through a program called Cure Violence, Okay. This cure Violence program is a Chicago based program that treats violence like an epidemic with a public health approach. Employing social workers rather than police cure. Violence claims to have reduced shootings in Chicago, Baltimore and New York City, but its effectiveness has been questioned and this is the best part. Roberto.

"All right you know Ground zero the defunding the police movement was minneapolis. Because that's where george floyd was killed and it spread to cities all across the country in minneapolis. City council up there see. I think that's a pretty good idea and now so many politicians are suing the city because of the increase in violent crime and jeff. Monosso fox news. Radio is here with more. They're out there blaming the the the defend the police move and jeff right. Yeah well yeah. They're they're suing the city. They're suing the city's mayor in part blaming the the movements amid explosion in crime and choosing the city of basically failing. It's basic duty to keep people safe and and allowing the city to descend into lawlessness over the past year year to date homicides of more than doubled the lease seeds far fewer. Guns gun thefts are are up more than one hundred percent carjackings up three hundred percent and the men and women blue From the minneapolis. Force the quitting and rose. Nearly two hundred officers have left that department since last year many filing post traumatic stress claims due to the riots that followed george floyd staff One former police officer who quit steve. Dykstra tells fox news departments. Basically become a stand down force where loitering laws are gone. You can't pursue vehicles anymore And that is the last straw for him was when mayor jacob fry ordered police to abandon their pre their police precinct last year and a at the burden told officers ordered officers to take a soft approach on on on criminals. And we're actually seeing that in cities across the country. I mean chicago just Had beta came up with new rules. To limit. Foot chases In in the city and while the democratic controlled city council minneapolis still demand that funding police. The mayor wants more resources now. Forced to effort outside state and federal help. To try and somehow clamp down on crime district judge is expected to issue a ruling on the lawsuit and the plate attorneys say that they believe that. The judge will likely call for more police officers as early as this month. Wow any speculation on Looking for damages or what. They want to be safe. And so i think this this order by the beliefs By by the judge to order More police Is is a win for for them. not so much for people who who want to de-fund police and To minimize the the force in minneapolis and in cities across the country. Let me let's beyond the headlines across the country austin police officer shortage forces downsizing asheville north carolina police no longer responding to some some nine one one calls Understaffed salt lake city. Police department consistently responding to slow to eat -mergency calls those are just a couple of the headline this one from the sun times and chicago. Our kids are becoming extinct chicago. Children being killed by guns far faster rate than years past fifty two children under fifteen shot ten killed so far this year In a list of headlines to go on and on and us It was interesting a judge. I didn't realize a judge had the power to order that. You got to put more police out here you know. But a few they've got to do one of the issues as you know. Jeff is that Even if even if they do it's it's hard to find officers that want to work in that environment now and so they may have to lower the standards and it's just a mess in The officer shortage there. It's so cincinnati. Pd is cutting the time that recruits will spend at the academy that's how desperate cincinnati s And so The you know you look at what's happened across the country and if you have any friends who are police officers. I mean they'll flat out tell you that the job is is is become Almost a unbearable They can't do their job anymore. Because of the risks to themselves their families and their future I mean. I can tell you just just an in illinois Alone they passed a law. Where you know if you're a police i if you if you have a a you know somebody on your front lawn you don't know a potential threat you call police you call nine one one comcan show up. They can write that person as a citation if they take it You can try and give it to them if they take it but they can't you're not they're not order to take it you can't remove them from the property and then you can tell the property owner. I'm sorry both of you. You have a nice day. They can't arrest them. Otherwise the officers would face arrest. So that's what's happening in illinois. Incredible jeff monosso fox news radio.

"And so we really wanted to go and where the problem was most acute right where people were closest to the problems in policing and what we found You know which won't surprise anybody. These days was the same thing that we've been talking about Earlier in the program right that residents particularly residents of color are experiencing pervasive negative encounters with police officers including getting pulled over in cars and getting stopped when they're on the street and being spoken to rudely being treated with hostility by officers and that creates a real sense of distrust of the police department Particularly when per violent crime continues in the community so people had the sense. That law enforcement was not only failing to protect them From victimization in their community but that police were themselves a form of violence in a form of harm because they were constantly stopping and harassing residents. Brent. we've seen Calls for defunding or abolishing the police in fact the minneapolis police department had wasn't weren't they supposed to disband to a certain extent. What happened with that or sure that was last year following. George floyd killing the city council Proposed a charter of a change. The charter said he's charter. That would allow them to basically dismantle the police department in replace it with a different agency that failed because the charter commission felt like they didn't have enough time to properly vet the idea in so it didn't get on the ballot last year. That effort got revised this year. The council also proposed another similar charter amendment A group of citizens have also started a petition. Drive to get that. Also on on the ballot. And there's also change A foot in the the city's charter commission itself is exploring the idea of of changing the charter to to change the how the balance of power works between the council and the mayor. The mayor has the authority over the police department. So those efforts are all still going forward. Full steam brent. What was the perception of the minneapolis police department before the before. Derek chauvin killed. George floyd by residence at least right. Well i'll tell you as somebody who also used to live in north minneapolis. I was there about almost twenty years ago in jordan neighborhood. There was a a young boy was ex- according to police accidentally shot during high risk raid at house word spread around the neighborhood that the police actually shot and killed this young black man. A young boy in that sparked a riot That was just one of many incidents that led to calls from the community to actually put place the minneapolis. Police department under federal receivership. Now instead of doing that they engaged in a federally mediated agreement. That started back in two thousand and three and that agreement expired in two thousand eight. But they actually. We started that process last year. After george floyd was killed so this has been going on for a long time. There's been federal intervention before although not as invasive so to say is This particular and or extensive as as this current investigation. So yes. there's been a ongoing. I'm quite contentious relationship between members of particularly the black community in minneapolis police department. Michelle when you heard about this investigation from the department of justice into the minneapolis police department and new york. Of course your research on the interactions between citizens and police Probably informed a lot of what you're thinking in terms of recommendations for the minneapolis police department in in advance of this investigation. Where do you see the biggest areas of improvement that need to happen for the minneapolis. Police department sure yeah..

"Look at some of those past Officer involved killings andbranch just wondering if the minneapolis police department has said anything about this investigation or have they just Not issued any statement so far. Well yeah the. The police department issued a statement including a reaction from chief arredondo. He basically expressed support for it. I i've spoken with Some people who are have worked with the chief in the past they say this is something that could bolster his efforts to bring about a change in police culture a however we have not heard any comment from the police federation as michelle. What type of. I mean the the you've done studies on these police departments in north minneapolis in particular. How would you describe the history of the minneapolis police department and its relations with black and brown residents of the city. Sure yeah so for the past five years or so. I've been doing a study of the minneapolis. Police department looking at it from the perspective of community perceptions of the police activists demands for changes in policing And then what. The department has actually done to reform the department. And i think minneapolis is more typical of american cities in some ways than it is atypical and that the problems in minneapolis. I think our nationwide. So since two thousand and fifteen the department has actually been pretty aggressively involved in a lot of the kinds of best practices police reforms That have been suggested by things like consent decrees through the doj program and yet they have also had this continuing series of high profile. Police killings And more routine sort of day to day harassment of residents particularly back black and indigenous residents. And so there's a long history in minneapolis. Both of Police misconduct and police abuse of police reform and activism to change policing michelle. This is supposed to be a pattern or practice investigation. What do we know about these types of investigations. So these types of investigations were relatively common under the obama administration and then petered out during the trump administration. They you know at their height are still touching only a handful of departments. There's eighteen thousand police departments nationwide. And so you can really only respond to kind of the the the most high profile cases and cities. But i think what the pattern and practice investigations allow us to do is to as The attorney general said to really get at these more systemic issues rather than these one off cases and try to see. What's under girding those problems. And ideally i think the the model was that some of the forms and consent decrees that came out of this process could be applied to other places. Right could be that same. Package of reforms could be implemented in other kinds of cities. And i think one of the concerns activists have today is whether the return of these pattern and practice. Investigations will help to or will Block efforts to really reimagine policing and kind of move away from Police reform and towards really thinking about alternative systems of public safety..

"Talking about the aftermath of george floyd murder in minneapolis. Lloyd's death didn't just spur calls for police reform there but in cities and states across the us. So where do things stand now. Here's just walk through this walk us through the state of police reform the. Us is jemayel's larget staff writer at the marshall project. Jemayel's glad to have you with us. Hey thanks for having me. So i want to start with the latest from congress. Last week the house passed. The george floyd justice in policing act. Is this note worthy in of itself. Even though you know it hasn't passed in the senate yet. What what is the significance of just the vote itself. What does the bill do. Sure i. i think that's a yes. No question right on on one level. It is a pretty dramatic piece of legislation in terms of Addressing policing on the other hand. It was passed last year in the house And wasn't taken up by the senate and it seems fairly unlikely to gain traction in the senate This session. I mean the democrats would need to keep the entire party together on on this question. Which isn't a guarantee and then would need to to get and republicans. Join them in promoting this bill. It seems like The qualified immunity portion of the bill is going to really just make bad impossible. The effort to eliminate qualified immunity or scarlet. Back up in the weeks and months following the killing of george floyd states all over the country rushed to pass their own police reform bills. Do we have a sense of of how many of those actually became law. It's a good question. I would caution against sort of trying to come up with hard numbers because all of these states are starting from different places in terms of. What's the law on the books And then the laws that were proposed and you either passed or failed all had different components to them. Right so it's it's difficult or maybe unwise to group them all together and say you know. These are all the places that that passed bills. It's a colorado probably went the furthest of all the states that did that were able to pass bills Because they did address this question of qualified immunity for listeners who may be unfamiliar with the term That's a legal doctrine that says effectively that government workers can't be held liable for what they do on the job. Except in rare circumstances it said a doctrine that was judicially created in the nineteen sixties and has been slowly of surely expanded by courts in the meanwhile I think another thing that we see in the laws that have passed in the wake of. George floyd i is they. They kind of come out of a few different varieties many states kind of bundled all of these things together But there are laws that are inspired by the death of breonna taylor that address no knock raids. There are laws that were that were inspired by the death. Of george floyd that often touched on banning chokeholds or carotid restraint and more generally Many of these laws have endeavored to address broader systemic policing things like qualified immunity Which which sort of speaks to weather. The the difficulty in holding police officers Accountable and i guess in some respects personally liable for their actions on the and what about defunding. The police says that called translated into policy or budget moves of any significance anywhere around the country. I think probably what's what's more reasonable to say is that the pandemic has had the effect of defunding local government which has included the police right so many municipalities have seen their tax base really wither and crumble In the loss of sales tax and all all different ways that governments themselves So you know to give you an example. I i live in new orleans and here are police. Budget is being cut to the to the point. Where officers are are under. A mandatory. Over a month of furlough. They've gotta take twenty six unpaid days off next year just to try to cover some of the the budget shortfall so We're we're seeing that in cities around the country much more than we're seeing the actual Sort of implementation of de-fund What we certainly are seeing in a lot of places as experimentation pilot programs to Use a term unbundle the police right to to take some of the activities that police currently do or some of the situations that police currently respond to an awful offload those two civilian agencies folks who don't carry guns we have seen a fair degree of that that is not all necessarily tied to changes in funding. Which have to happen as a matter of of legislation and half do sort of go through a process. What are some of the challenges that those who want more radical changes to police departments are facing. I is it police unions. That are the major obstacle police. Unions are certainly an an obstacle or maybe to be more specific police. Union contracts are an obstacle because there's many changes That have been proposed and that quite honestly a lot of police chiefs would be open to But but the union contract which only comes up every so many years prevents those types of Those types of reforms from from being implemented. So that's certainly a large piece. Standing in the way ethic were broadly. What's standing in the way of of reforms or Of reimagining or any whichever term you want us is just the inertia of the system. The system has grown and developed over many many years to be this way. And it's it's very hard to to turn that kind of thing around ju- miles larget is a staff writer at the marshall project. Jemayel's.

"The ranks. The film women and Blue premieres tonight on the PBS series independent Lens and will stream on PBS dot orc. Sergeant. What can you describe the precinct that you work in? The neighborhood's better in the precinct. So Minneapolis, I believe is I would save 12 to 14% Black. It's a very low number and the North side where I work, north Minneapolis is probably between 60 and 80% Black. So the majority of the African American community lives on the north side where I patrol where I supervised the middle Watch officers. It's a poor community. I think, uh, the Minneapolis has some of the highest racial disparities for black people in the nation. And in a while ago I read in a magazine that Minneapolis is number one to raise a family. If you are white and the worst place to raise a family if you're black Minneapolis has the highest violent crime in the state on the north side of Minneapolis. You are. You're a trainer and the procedural justice unit for a while. What is procedural justice? What was your training? Like? What were you trying to teach? Fellow officers. So the foundation of procedural justice is voice. Neutrality, respect trustworthiness. So voice Teaching officers that even though this call is repetitious, and you've been to 10 domestic violence calls tonight, take a minute and let this person talked to you and explain their situation to you Give them a voice. Respond neutrally. So even though you've been to 10 domestic calls tonight Being controlling your decision making based on this incident that you're on right now. Respect. You might not respect this violent person who you're encountering right now. But I always said treat everyone professionally. And it's going to appear as if you were respecting that person. It's hard in law enforcement to show respect for someone who you who you know, was a violent person who just beat up their wife and, you know, attempted toe killer. But you could be professional. What does it mean to be professional? When you show up, Say for a domestic Violence call and you see That the wife or partner has been beaten up and you have tol Deal with her talk down the man who might even be armed. But what does it mean to show respect while trying to de escalate the crisis? And deal appropriately, for instance, handcuffing him if necessary, taking him to the precinct if necessary. Was away. I've arrested people in my life. When I get down to jail. They're thanking me and they're not thanking me because I put them in handcuffs and took them to jail. They were thanking me because I treated them humanely. And as a human, I think we all know what that means. If you have to use force on someone museum on a force that's necessary for the situation, and then you stop. You don't have to talk to someone disrespectfully. Sometimes their humility is the last thing that this person has. And if you take that from them, you're backing them into a corner and you're not giving them an opportunity. To comply with what you need them to comply with, so treating people humanely and obviously responding to a situation the way you have to in a law enforcement matter. But stopping when you can And then going back to being professional. So you're not taking it personally, You're not responding emotionally. There's an incident you describe in the documentary women and Blue. Him, which you show up, and there's someone In the car pulled over on the side who Um, has no driver's license. And I want you to describe The scene and how you handled it. Yeah. So police officers have a lot of discretion. Discretion leaning. I get to dictate what happens in a situation as long as I'm not violating the law, so I can decide whether or not I'm going to give someone a traffic ticket. Or if I'm gonna told her car. And growing up poor. I think I have a better understanding how if I told this person's car that could set them up for you, no catastrophic situation financially that they might not ever be able to get out of its expensive to get your car out of the impound lot and Let's just say they don't have proof of insurance. They'll never get their car out of the impound lot, which means they'll never get their driver's license valid and it just consent them up for, you know a domino effect, so Stop.

So like i know man you know. I feel like the word. Fusion doesn't get used or does get used but for a very specific fusion to me. I was think of jazz rock fusion. But it's safe to say that that the fusion of all of these genres right for sure. Yeah it is. It is a sub genre of funk. Yeah and i'm going to read this straight. Pull the straight from kapadia but this is a pretty great summary of it and they're just going to jump right into our first song so actually not no. let's play let's play a song i Okay so i'm going to play a couple of songs from the time so jesse.
