Lawmakers Continue Police Reform Negotiations

"May of last year, lawmakers in every state and the District of Columbia have introduced more than 3000 police reform bills. The National Conference of State Legislatures reports. That's double the number introduced in 2017. Theo U. S Department of Justice is investigating the Minneapolis police and other departments. And brought civil rights charges against Derrick Show. Vin and the other former officers involved in George Floyd's burger Cities and school districts have responded to Minneapolis public schools, joined districts across the country and cutting ties with police. And Minneapolis City Council members made headlines when they promised to defund the police. That's provocative shorthand for rerouting public safety dollars to social services that can reduce crime. And it's also something we have really heard from the general public. I asked my colleague, Minnesota public radio reporter Brandt Williams when he knew something was different. Well, I guess Anjo like many people, when I first saw that bystander video Usually there is a situation between a police officer and somebody there's a officer makes a split second decision where they fire a weapon. It's over in a second, but this happened Over nine minutes. We heard George Floyd pleading for his life, and we saw the reaction of the officer Derrick Show Vin, just not changing his expression, and he kept the pressure on. So I think that's when I knew as a boy, You know, it's gonna be really hard for this just to be pushed under the rug or just kind of forgotten about. During the next news cycle. And Brant the response from city officials that was swift as as well different than than what we've seen in the past, starting with the quick firing of officer direct Children. Right that that was different. I mean, usually there's got to be an investigation or there has to be due diligence done here before we make any disciplinary decisions. But this was the next day chief Mid Air. Arredondo came right out and said that this officer is no longer A member of the Minneapolis Police Department, and he fired the other three officers involved as well.

George Floyd family reach $27m civil lawsuit settlement

"The Minneapolis City Council approved $27 million civil settlement with the family of George Floyd over the man's death in police custody last year. And with us to discuss the settlement is one of Floyd family attorneys Tony Rooney tree from the Chicago law firm of Roman UCI and Bland and hi, Tony. Thank you for joining us. How are you? Good afternoon, Karen. I'm doing well. Hope you're well, too. Now. What family members do you represent? So first of all, we are. We represent the trustee in the case. The trustee was appointed as as the main plaintiff, somebody who oversees the litigation. And then, of course, we represented all of the next of kin. Except for one family member s o. We represented well over 10 next of kin in this family, okay? And where? How does it How does a settlement like this? Get negotiate? I mean, this was probably a very unusual situation because of the high profile nature of what was going on. But can you just give our listeners just a view from a legal standpoint? From a lawyer's standpoint in a case like this? How do you broach the topic? And who are you speaking with? Well, it's a very high level question, Karen. There's so much that goes into the settlement of the case like this, But I can tell you that it was a very long Protracted negotiation it involved Literally dozens of meetings between the lawyers, the people in Minneapolis Account was letters and emails and phone calls and sit down and and it takes a long time. They were very protracted, long, difficult negotiations. But it is very typical in these sort of negotiations. Once it happens, it happens very quickly. It's like all of a sudden someone just lifts up the door to that dam, and the water comes gushing out and it's over. S o. You know, we knew that we had settled the case with Minneapolis about 10 days ago, but it had to be kept confidential for so many reasons and I have to hand it Not only the legal team but also the Floyd family members for for keeping this very tightly wrapped, keeping the bow on it until it was ready to be released to the public, which was on Friday. So where does the money come from? The $27 Million in settlement is that come from the police department, the city or is their insurance money for this type of thing? It's very typical and municipalities is that municipalities have control over police departments. And when I say that is that they control their budgets. For example, in Chicago. Um you know, the Chicago Police Department budget is close to $2 billion per year that comes out of city of Chicago Department of Finance right to do. And the same thing in Minneapolis, except their budget is under 200 million. It's a much smaller budget. It's 1/10 the size of that of Chicago's And in the Minneapolis City budget is somewhere around a billion dollars. Now Minneapolis is different than Chicago in that they are considered a very, very Good credit risk. They haven't aid on a plus credit rating and they've been very fiscally responsible over the years, so they actually had the money for this. This will all be self insured money. And Minneapolis has assured that taxpayers that not one cent of this will be taxed back to its citizens. Now I'm going to take the devil's advocate here. And there are people when I've heard them. I've heard them on the streets saying, Yeah, the police were wrong. In this case. It was really a horrible thing. No one deserves to die. But what about all this money? Does this family deserve it? And is this the right thing to do? Well, how do you respond to that? There's no question Karen and you know, Look, it's a fair question, because you know, we have to play doubles advocate. We have to hear both sides. Let me say this. And I've said this, You know, I said this yesterday to somebody else, too. You know, we saw that video. Everybody has seen that video. Everybody now knows George Floyd. Was tortured and executed on the Minneapolis City street for close to nine minutes. They saw what he went through, but I will tell you I've been with this family. I can't not even tell you on how many countless occasions And they are they are tortured every day. All of them they all feel their own personal sense of torture, knowing that one of their dear loved ones was brutally slaughtered. Ministry like this. Nobody got the chance to say goodbye to him. Nobody had the chance to comfort him. This man died. His last breathing words were Mama. And it's It's beyond beyond sad that this is really this is what the definition of tragic is. So is $27 million. A lot of money. Yes, it is. It is. However, when you consider first of all the number of family members who are going to be a part of this settlement And the torture that they will undergo and that they have undergone every day. This is this is how our Seventh Amendment works. This is how civil justice works. It works by making people hold and compensating them.

"So Pat, the Minneapolis City Council president, eyes wondering Where's the police? Ah, love the story. Two months they're to our meeting, City Council members told police chief That their constituents are seeking a hearing on street racing racing, and sometimes the crashes, brazen daylight Carjackings, the robberies, the assaults and the shootings. And they asked the chief of police residents are asking. Where are the police? Without any sense of irony? And like, no, I don't self awareness. None. None. Well, I don't know. You've been de funding us. You've been calling us racist. You've allowed open attacks on us. I don't know. I don't know. Ah, sorry to the City Council where we got our hands full here. Sizing where we're busy protecting the house of the mayor of Minneapolis. Sorry, sorry. UN Believable City Council was actually talking about eliminating her. They were so where's the police? Oh, my gosh, I don't know. Police officers. I don't know how you do it. I really don't But you should move to places out west that get it. I mean, Idaho, Utah. In Colorado. Some parts of Colorado still kind of get it. Texas definitely gets it. Don't come here if you don't know why you've come here. I mean, Joe Rogan has been great. He's just moved down to Austin, which is the California of Texas. But he immediately said OK, don't like the mayor, the mayor's problem. Ah, and he said, Texas is so different in every show. I just want him to shut up. Stop talking about Texas. I know how Texans felt about me when I moved here. He's like this is fantastic. You can't believe you can actually do fill in the blank. And it's not a problem in Texas, you can actually build fill in the blank, and it doesn't take you forever. And, ah, he's saying, Though I moved from California I need to learn everything from the people who actually built this state, so I don't drag along any of the crap that I brought in from California. You have to do that. You have to do that. But I feel bad for that. Can you imagine if these guys actually win? If the if the Harris Biden ticket wins. How much trouble this nation is in We've talked about it often on my show background leash by the way, right before this one or any time on podcasts, Okay for the love, but But yeah, if this if the Harris Beytin administration is put into force I don't know how long America lasts critic. To me, It's that I don't see a way anymore to bridge the gap of living. Side by side. One of us has to be wrong. You know what I mean? Because you can't say we're going to teach critical race theory. We're going to silence anyone who disagrees with it we can do we can do a federal mask mandate We can mandate whatever we want from the federal government level. We're going to redo our police by first de funding them. I mean, look at what's happening in New York. New York is New York's going to implode? I visited New York in the 19 eighties, right before Rudy Giuliani came in. It was Horrific It was horrific. Ah, and it was because of many of the same policies. But this is going to be worse. New York I don't know how they ever survive Goldman Sachs and 150 of the biggest corporations in New York. Went to AA de Blasio and said, You've got to change. You've got to stop this. You've got to stop this or everybody's gone. And he won't even won't even listen to him. No, he doesn't care. There's a story about half the top earners in New York City. Half of them are considering leaving the state for good. The city and the state. You why wouldn't you? Why wouldn't you Because right now, especially you don't even have a lot of the advantages that New York offers, you know, in the entertainment in the diversity and all distraught restaurants. Yeah, I mean, what do you have in New York? You go home to your rat infested department and you watch TV. Why not shake the rat infested apartment? Yeah, because I mean, there's nothing left there and instead of getting 1000 Square foot, one bedroom apartment in New York for a million dollars, spent a million dollars here. You get a 6000 square foot home with five or six bedrooms and in theory, I mean in a couple of acres. I mean, it's crazy. It's crazy. What's going on? Biden yesterday. He actually made this claim. And this is another reason why I don't know how we live together anymore. If the president is a quote now, remember, this is from the part. I accept that Donald Trump goes off and just as crazy things, but we've also now learned. Don't listen to what he says. Watch what he does. What he does is different than what he says. But that they have a problem with what people say So you gotta watch your word because he's full of lies. Listen to this one quote. If the president had done his job had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive. He's talking about Corona virus. All the people would still be alive. Quoting Still all the people. I'm not making this up. Look at the data. Just look at the data. So I'd like to see that would show they would show all the people that died of Corona virus. If Donald Trump would have done something that you now think is he should have done. I'd like to see that data. Is anybody Is anybody pushing on that one? Is that not the headline Everywhere. He's just said the president is responsible for all Whole Corona virus Death, which is close to 200,000. So he essentially killed 200,000. That's amazing. That's amazing. Then you have Biden yesterday. Also dismissing Trump's covert 19 vaccine. He said, You just can't trust this president can't trust him. Wait a minute. You can't trust him for the vaccine. And what the hell? I'm telling you. Something's wrong with the CDC. Something is very wrong in the CDC. Did you see the head of the CDC said Looks like you know, I think we're going to find out that these masks are much more valuable than a vaccine. What? Okay, These are the masks that the CDC said in the beginning, If you remember back in February, march, Yeah, don't help, especially cloth ones have got to be a certain kind. They almost have to be the respirator kind of masks that you use in for chemical weapons. It almost had. That's what they were saying in the beginning. Yeah, Anything else is just not effective. Now those same masks, arm or effective than a vaccine. And not just the lab. She wasn't talking about that. He was talking about mass. Yeah, anymore. This mask people are making their mass people are selling mask the the masks that surgical mask that everybody wears. That doesn't that doesn't do anything. You know why? If you wear glasses, you know why? Because when you breathe, the air goes up. That's what's fogging your glasses when you brave all that's going up, so you're not protecting anybody else. And when you breathe in air is coming down by your nose. That's what's happening. This is my kid's school starts on Monday back in school for just some of the kids. Help me out with this one. Pat.

Come on. Come on. What are you what That makes no sense at all. No sense at all, especially when you consider that it's not spreading through. The kids know they're worried about the teachers, then fine. Then, if you're if that teacher is either a so concerned about getting it than they should volunteer for the for the Internet teaching, right? You know what I mean? You got somebody who's older has conditions. They either don't come into work like everywhere else. Or they teach online and you have the young teachers.

"Providing supporters with sample talking points and messaging is a common tactic used, according to the article by political organizations and campaigns to build public momentum, But organ Not usually not governors, right? Organized efforts intended to create the appearance of widespread public support while concealing the source of the message, a practice sometimes known as Astro Turf. Ng has come under some criticism in recent years. Oh my gosh! The right gets accused of this all The time we've gotten accused of this all the time, And in my 25 years of doing radio, rock or talk, it'll matter. I have never been handed any talking points mother than come out and see Limp biscuit or join us at Acme Comedy Company, Right? Those are the type of talking points that we can. Yeah, there used to be, ah, widespread belief that anybody who was doing talk radio was just getting like talking points faxed to them by Karl Rove or whomever the Boogey Man du jour. What Right. You know which coat brothers? I've been in this industry now for over 20 years, and I've never ever once seen that happened. It may happen never happened. Us, though. It's never happened to me, By the way, if Jeff Johnson had one, and he did this, you would have seen a freak out on par with the individuals who were looking at those two idiots wearing swastika mass inside the WalMart at Marsh in Marshall. That would have been the freakout response if this was coming from a Republican governor, in addition to pre written letters to the editor, deed also provided sample text to that individuals could send a state official SOLs to indicate their support for the mandate instructions at the top, say to email or mail the message to the governor. He's basically sending out. Thank you. Pre written. Thank you notes to send back to him. You guys love me, right? Don't Why don't you? Why don't you sign this letter indicating how much you love me indicating your devotion and loyalty to me and then send it back to me. That would be great. And then I can pretend that you just did it on your own. What? I wrote the letter for you. What a thin skinned flannel mask wearing loser the government that the governor is What a coward! How thin skin do you have to be where you have to send out? Right. I mean, look, that's even just setting aside. Right? Sort of the the probably the lack of appropriateness, right putting it lightly that it is to use taxpayer dollars to push out your own propaganda. But how thin skinned er you as a governor if you're going on and basically begging businesses to write letters to the editor and tweets in favor of you, My gosh, What a coward! And when you have an attorney general that The business community is already afraid of. There are the they're already afraid of becoming a target of Keith Keith Ellison. He has shown that he likes nothing more than going after the private sector, shutting down businesses, finding businesses harming businesses who aren't complying as to his satisfaction when you've got when you got that, as your attorney general, do you not even take a moment to or maybe you did, And maybe that was part of the strategy. Two to think about the effect that that would have on a business owner. The governor just sent me a letter that he wants me to sign and send out to the newspapers indicating support for this mass mandate. I don't really support it, but I'm kind of afraid not to because I don't want I don't want to become the next target of Keith Ellison. Look, look at everything in total, right? This is this is the left leadership in Minnesota. Waging a software on the right is 100% pure politics. We have a story next hour. We talked about it. On Friday, the Minneapolis City Council. Has Gotten rid of the police Department spokesperson position and they have now taken full control. Minneapolis City Council has taken full control of the messaging coming out of the Minneapolis police Department. You've got pal Putin, which I think is really relevant, right? Name calling is not that far off the mark. You got Palpatine. He's got his mandate, which is ridiculous, Nonsensical, especially when you look at all of the different exceptions that are involved in the indoor mass mandate, and they got Keith Ellison, who is the strong arm of noncompliance out there. I mean, think about it. I mean, how do I look in a country where it's supposed to be free? This is tyrannical. Anything. It is incredibly tyrannical. What is happening in our state right now? I honestly am dumbfounded. But how bad it has gotten at this point in time. This is not how we should be conducting ourselves in a free country, and we shouldn't be standing idly by and letting it happen. I don't know what can be done. But something has to be done. These are all the things that they blamed Trump is that he was going to be for 3.5 years. They're doing it. So they have a list of business owners and industry group professionals and and all the parents and educators So they sent this out to a bunch of people. So it's it's reasonable to assume that they have their information, their names their addresses who've got sent to its also reasonable to assume that they might keep track. Of who sends those letters in who sends those letters to the newspapers or back to the governor. This is starting to sound like I don't know. Like a list. Yeah. A list that the governor and the attorney general might be keeping of which industries and business owners are compliant and which ones aren't and who knows what they might use that list for in the future. The further in the article on this brings up again. It is a who's who is a city it again. Satori van out of the Star Tribune writes this the desktop Comes as Republican lawmakers have sought unsuccessfully to end the governor's use of emergency powers, arguing that his actions are no longer warranted. On Wednesday, guys Elka criticized the mass mandate is a one size fits all approach that it doesn't make any sense for communities with fewer Corona virus cases. Then they go on to write this. Health officials say the mass mandate reflects the growing evidence the face coverings along with social distancing, hand washing. Other precautions can help control the spread of Corona virus. While some studies have provided we coring, conclusive finding from the benefits, June analysis show that the spread of Govan, 19 dropped more sharply in states with mandates. Yeah, you know what? And ours was dropping without it Without it. We were doing fine. We've been doing fine. I mean, unless you're in a long term care facility. Oh, yeah, that's true. And then there's Brad that sentence. That's where you don't want to be in Minnesota. So long as you're not in one of those in Minnesota. You're you're in pretty good shape, man. All you gotta do is just look at the data and the numbers and then see the media coverage and you know you can see full well, what's happening the side by side data points between Florida And New York are stunning. The population's almost exactly the same, and you have to have tens of thousands of deaths, as opposed to thousands of deaths. Florida versus New York and yet, and yet Cuomo gets all this praise lumped on him for the job that he's done. He's handled it so right. Credits. You look at the numbers and going what? Almost my president, what nipple rings and all. He let so many more people die in New York that Florida you're you're really hung up on those nipple rings. Wouldn't you be? No, I'm not. I mean, I guess if you're a horrible person, the champion's death and you would be on Cuomo side, you know, be like all those people died so many more than Florida isn't a great so many, Ted, you know, just thousands upon thousands more people in New York. Got to pass away so much death. It's fantastic. Jason Lewis is running for Senate against a Tina Smith and I'm sure he's got some thoughts on the governor Walls mask mandate. We haven't had him on since it came down very much. Looking forward to hero Jason Lewis has to say about that next justice in true, Let's just put it this way. It's not as bad as I thought it would.

Trump calls for retribution against protesters toppling statues

"One month after the death of George. Floyd tonight the house pass the George Floyd. Justice in Policing Act. But, of course the bill has a long way to go. Mitch McConnell has nothing like this in mind. He decides what gets to go through the Senate. And what makes it all the way to his man Donald Trump for signature here with us again tonight to talk about all the Keith Maze Author Professor of African American Studies at the University of Minnesota. Professor here we are. We've had people in the streets every day and every night for over a month now and unbelievably. They have been propelled in new protests in waves by the new cases that have come to light almost like supplying reinforcements for those people who have fallen back my question to you is what have we learned in these days and nights and what has changed? We've learned. Brian is that this movement is not going to stop. Anytime soon, we'll marching on all the way to November third. We will make the necessary changes that have to be made. We will put Joe Biden an office and we will see what the Democrats will do. I'm not confident that we will get any meaningful legislation pass. While Donald Trump is in office and while the Republicans hold the Senate. So we'll see I think we have to rely on a protest, movement and grassroots activity out there on the streets, nationally and internationally this movement moves. Was, continues on the struggle continues. I think a lot of people share your view that you kind of can't wait for Washington. Does this not in a weird way because Mitch McConnell is Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump is donald trump. Does this not in a weird way? Reflect attention back on the local politicians who've been in the news depending on where you live. For these last couple months because of a pandemic, I'm talking about governors and mayors. Governors Mayors City Councils, state legislatures I think that in many ways, the pressure that has to be mounted. On public officials to get anything done all your local your state leaders. You're absolutely right. I think that in many ways they have. The ear of the movement, I think that the organizations the grassroots organizations are closer to these particular elected officials I think that they are open and ready for real change. You see what the Minneapolis City Council did a few weeks ago and calling for a complete remake. An reform of. The Minneapolis Police Department almost in abolishment of it and to and to start over. Yes, I mean the movement is calling for using words like abolish and and de-fund in Washington is is talking another language now. Some of the stuff that's coming out of the House of Representatives is good. I don't know about this in the Senate, the the kinds of Ideas coming out of the Senate seems to be anemic. They don't seem to go far enough, so we have to take this thing in stages and pressure all of our public officials, but I think you're absolutely right I, think the local state ones are are are poised to respond much more than the national ones. I want to play for you. And by extension our audience, what Donald Trump, said tonight, this Fox News townhall about the protesters and listen for the R. Word. I stopped at the other night. I stopped at a number of times, but you'll see what's happening and we told them every night. We're going to get tougher and tougher and at some point is going to be. Because there has to be these people event. Agitators, but they're really the terrorists. What do you think he means by retribution? We have to take control the streets. What did he say the other week we have to? We have to sweep up streets. We have to take action I. Think these are dog whistles, but in many ways we have to take him seriously. He's talking about using the power of the state. Crush the movement is just as simple as that.

Yes, it's incredible. What they the way. Jerry this is interesting I'm learning. And it's I understand if you hate cops and you think they're. Violent and all that, but you know who paid a price for that same as in Minneapolis. Store owners and people who worked in the neighborhood and they call Brown Simpson. Basically are killer got away because of them and Reginald Dennie innocent or a truck driver dragged out of his truck and smashed over the head with bricks and had brain damage, and they paid the price. It's never you know. I mean that time. I found the news. People were who were stoke. The flames of you know racial hatred the way. The Way Chris Cuomo Don Lemon are doing now, but. They were completely dishonest, and it's amazing when you read up on that story on the on the Rodney King and you know. When you when you saw I mean still, don't you feel like?

Are they watching this or they helping holding him down right? Yeah. I mean. That's kind of the culture thing. To speak for Alex, dreamers of the world is that the fact that the other three didn't do anything about it or stop them, and two of them were holding him down in the back. while. This is happening. That's that's ultimately with the marching against is the culture that like the show? WTN's of the world don't get routed out for killing people.

Like all the movies your bad cops is. People are afraid of crazy had a tough time, jerry two weeks before they were blaming him for corona virus, and now he's being charged with murder, so we the guy can't catch a break. And now you got the two guys in the back there holding him down, one of them was like the like three or four months into the job, the Bald Guy, who was only twenty six years old any abused me at least part black that one guy.

Acquittal even better because then make it's that riding again and that's what he wants. He's in a TEPA supporter, but A one was talking about the relationship between these two guys and the way chauvel did it made you think that he was intentional like trying to kill him I? Mean you're thinking when it's over chauvinist saying? I didn't mean to kill him right? What do what he did mean to kill him for some reason. They had to find they had to prove that. Though the prove beyond a reasonable doubt that like he, your his relations, his previous relationship with this guy, there had to be some sort of animosity there. They have to prove that they had the find a witness that saw the have great like you know. Maybe Derek Chauve and said something about him one time. That would be evidence that they can use but. Any chance that happens because that would be just incredible. Find Out. Like you, said you know like you would. You would think that exists for them to upgrade the second degree murder or else.

"About the Hong Kong protests, but boy the protests here. hold the deal and providing for freedom in Hong Kong, but. What why isn't trump had a rally yet? I mean after seeing all this movie isn't now. Because let's be honest. These protests are just gigantic anti-trump rally. There is no trump. Supporters whatsoever entre percent so this is essentially a political rally. Why doesn't trump have a rally tomorrow? it's a good question. I guess because it would be appear to be insensitive right now. We're focusing with George. George Ward's funeral is tomorrow I believe where they'll be like ten thousand people and most will have masks on, but they'll. Certainly, you're still not allowed Oh. You weren't allowed to have funerals. The stories and I know we're supposed to ignore these stories, and at focused on the cause, but the stories of people who buried their parents or grandparents or loved ones. Without a funeral without saying goodbye without being there for them, knowing that paragraph per died alone because of some draconian rule that are out of control, governor or other governor made their heartbreaking. Turn on TV the. TV and see this clown Mayor Minneapolis repeating over the gold casket of George Floyd and Al Sharpton overseeing a huge funeral and you go wait a second. I mean. I feel like much floyd but. I mean I thought. I had the privilege. But. He's getting privileges that other people are not getting that die. That's a good question, and and the Park receives chests, just incredible that and they'll be another again. This'll be another funeral for George Floyd. In Houston. Another service I lost a lot of respect for Floyd's families. Brother was was really good for a couple of days. but you agreeing to have L. shopped into the funeral is a really kind of crass move. In my opinion, you have to know. Just what kind of! Race Hustler is you have to know his record? I mean you don't know the man you don't have any so sickly to. In? The nineties. One of those guys, the Tummy of the the best gastric bypass kind of made them look. He got the surgery I didn't know that. jerrold Nadler at the surgery, but he's still looks terrible. but dumb. We'll see how that goes, but you're right. A trump rally would be interesting I. Don't think he can do it yet. He could do it. Even with the virus sellout Wti can't do it while the protests or riots are still going on I. Think Yes to let that come down, i. that's just my opinion maybe. Next couple of weeks because we've had like a couple of days without any mass. You know looting and rioting and arson, right? It's been like two three as. Well Yeah. It's calmed down a little bit more into the kneeling. Now I cannot believe the number of people number media outlets who are treating this like a real thing like a like a not a real thing, a A sane thing like. Their politicians discussing I mean some they're mostly radicals Alano Marne in the and Blasio and Marty Walsh just left wing nuts, but they're sitting there, talking about defunding the police and we're looking at Gerry abolishing. We don't want no Mo police. That's what the woman said in Minnesota. We don't want no more police will. That's their I mean and and they're literally. People do damage control. You'll see them here them. You know on MSNBC AND CNN San. They don't really mean abolish. They just mean redirecting the funds and I'm going wait a second. They said abolished. They said and de-fund. Black lives matter is a radical left wing group I mean doesn't make them bad people that just they have agendas. Agenda and if you just read up, you see this has been their goal along long before. George Ford died long before the first brick through the window at target. Their goal was to de-fund fund the police that is on their website. That is their. Their mission to defend the police, not a new thing that they've been around there fairly new I. think will only been around seven years, but. It's been their goal and they have lots of other goals, and I I mean I someone like Mitt Romney. Obviously, he's A. Puke he doesn't care what they stand for, but I would I would ask them. You know if I were to get him on the show, I'd say Mitt you know what black lives matter believes. Do you know what they? Advocate Say.

Who took it to another level now I again embarrassed for the cops who take a knee and the ones who don't and you've logged about some of them I salute them. I applaud them the ones who say. I've kneel before God I don't kneel before you know. Riers, and looters, or even even if it's a mostly peaceful protests, the idea that a cop should take a knee and everyone should take. Picture is disgusting, but anyway. Michael Shaw here we go. There is Michael SCHARF. You're on facebook or twitter. You get to see Michael Shaw the chief of police. Why is it always a big Zoff Dick Woman Who's a lording over? No math on no mask, a very large warm. Couple of large women. What are they doing? What's the one on the right to take a picture of this absolute fool and I don't think I could break the speed lemon western West in webster anymore I. Don't know ever have you can't turtle boy because this guy's an embarrassment to the police forces embarrassment to cops everywhere. That's a still photo. On video in real life, he laid their face town on the pavement for eight minutes and forty six seconds With his hands behind his back like he's handcuffed I, guess we should. Be Glad. He didn't have a need. Someone didn't pretend to put an E. on them. Because just him laying face down on the pavement the chief of police. And you went through this to I know you did I mocked this full, and half the responses and I got a lot or saying. What's your problem? He's you know he's still he has to do he's. Getting along with the crowd, its symbolism, I'm going nuts this Cup sa- person of authority, and he's bowing before them, and they're taking his picture, and it's going global it is this this? Put on that. Webster's the town turtle boy put webster on. I don't know if you put them on the map like in I. Don't Know Far East Asia or Australia, but this clown did Michael Shaw that picture. And I didn't think it through. That picture is everywhere or he thought through. This is no jerry. This is exactly thought through, and this is what really pisses me off about black lives matter don't understand. Who came away from this as the most memorable aspect of it, was it a black person? No, it was a white person. It was a white police chief who wanted who saw all these other cops taking a knee on TV, and they were getting attention. He's like that could be me. How can I want them? How can I do something a little bit more outrageous to really get the cameras on me? And he literally made the whole thing about him when it was all over the only thing anyone was talking about was this. Brave courageous police chief rather than the the people who put it on who are who are black, but nobody talked about them. Talked about the police chief because he's a narcissist, he's just like look at me and I will give their furious. The protesters are furious with the other. Members of Police Department who refused to refuse to make them do it obviously, but when the leader does it it and then his underlings don't do it. There's a lot of pressure on them to it, so they're. They're all upset about. They're angry. Because this is an act of we demand, you do this, not option.

Thank Bruce as some you know rookie, Cup you see some of the national guardsmen that did it, and you figure you know that's just some guy or girl. That went a works at home depot. Just trying to get through the weekend. You know maybe says yeah. You know rather than have these people throw stuff at me I'll take knee from minute, and almost understand I mean I think they should all be reprimanded I think their their commanders should be. Reprimanded for allowing it to happen, but I can almost understand. This is the chief and I know this is not. We're not talking about you. Know New York City. Talking about the boss laying on his face on the pavement. Mother Way. What did they do for eight minutes? They sing songs, did they? Like I can't breathe. You know mcdaddy like real emotional whatever I mean. I have no problem with the protests. If it's peaceful but I would say like I said in the blog. A mob that requires that you emasculate yourself like that is not a mob. Appeasing, you know what are you? What? Why would they demand this of you like? Why would you want to impress people that are impressed by that I in social weakness with with black lives, matter because you have no central organization, you have no central goals that when Martin Luther King, marched. Into reason for we much and sell them for the voting. Rights Act when he marched on Washington for the Civil Rights Act to help that pass. He helped he literally up right those bills he worked with them black lives. Matter doesn't have anything like that. They just a victory for them is getting a police chief to take a knee or disband the entire police department want to get to the black lives matter gender because they've kind of morphed into this. I don't know virtuous. Organization they're people.

Jack Dorsey or Michael Jordan or whoever you WANNA. Give your money to them. That's fine a all well and good, but. You know what they stand for. Do you know what they believe in? That's all. I ask I mean just. Just read up. That's all I i. asked people on Twitter. Read Up. No, what you're. Know, who is leading you in this movement? But before we get to that, we got a couple more. I'm I'm starting to think that maybe Michael Shaw will JACOB FRY WE'RE GONNA have to name the biggest embarrassment today Michael showers is my choice. Go in, but there was a late move last night.

Silent demonstrations on Saturday one hundred fifty thousand people, and in Rome protesters pointed to far right campaigns against migrants in the industries that they say exploit them off the books jobs. Floyd's killing a struck a particular chord in Europe where leaders have struggled to. To integrate a wave of migrants and refugees from Africa and the Middle East over the past few years, the protests of course buck guidelines against large events, which are still in place over there in Britain. The government has urged the gatherings be limited to no more than six people.

"Oregon the superintendent of schools in the mayor agreed last week to remove police officers from the city schools when they come back into session and move more than a million dollars budgeted for school resource officers into community programs. Over the weekend protesters in DC painted de-fund the police next to a big black lives matter street mural that had been sanctioned by the mayor on Sunday morning. Staff from the city repainted the DC flag from the original mural that had been painted over, but they chose not to erase the de-fund. The police message black lives matter. DC tweeted that the original mural commissioned by the city as a CO perform distraction from real policy changes adding that the mayor Buzzer has consistently been on the wrong side of their group. They also claimed quote. Black lives matter means de-fund the police. Congressional Democrats today are going to unveil a sweeping legislative proposal that's been negotiated on their side of the aisle and the house in the Senate aimed at curbing excessive use of force by police departments, but it will certainly not call for defunding police indeed Joe Biden's criminal justice plan calls for increasing spending on police. Departments must also be said that saying defend the police as a slogan is an incredibly risky political position to stakeout. Even a lot of people protesting would probably not support that position at least as it sounds in shorthand president trump clearly sees it as a winning wedge issue. He started tweeting about it. It over the weekend. Speaking on Fox News. Sunday Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf called defunding police a absurd assertion on ABC. News Sunday Wolf also said he does not think that we have a systemic racism problem with law enforcement officers in this country, looking forward experts who have devoted their careers to these issues are not nearly as optimistic as protesters that this will become the watershed moment of reckoning for American policing. Maybe it's because they're cynical and they have experienced what it's like to run into resistance to reform with powerful forces that still loom including powerful police unions legal immunity for police in intractable implicit bias. Experts remember that Michael. Brown was supposed to be the watershed moment in Trayvon. Martin was supposed to be the watershed moment. They hope this will be different, but they're not so sure. Still though it's nice to be able to report some good news, and that is tensions are continuing to de-escalate from coast to coast demonstrations, which were initially marked by confrontations and violence have become more peaceful, even as several cities saw their largest crowds ever. The president announced yesterday that he is ordering. National Guard troops to begin withdrawing from the nation's capital the morning after more than ten thousand people marched through the district in what was mostly a festive day demonstrations that felt frankly like a street fair de Blasios new.

"The Minneapolis city council just voted on the new comprehensive plan call twenty forty back in December, Minneapolis became the first major American city to straight up ban single families. Owning Lisa bender is the president of the Minneapolis city council. I asked her to tell me how they did it. Well, first of all, the city of Minneapolis like so many cities around the country is growing again and we have a housing shortage here. We have a two percent rental vacancy rates, and our rental market. So as we looked forward over the next several decades, we know that we need more homes for people, and we're very committed as a city to address some of the country's worst racial disparities, which we have here Minneapolis on almost every measure health, education jobs housing. We see very, very stark. Ray. Disparities. We talked about that very explicitly very head on. We showed people at open houses maps of our city, that showed the old redlining maps, then we also had a local college called Augsburg college map, racially restrictive covenants that said, if you're Jewish or black or Asian, you couldn't live in these homes often just a few lines of text these restrictions were inserted into warranty, deeds across the country. No persons of any race other than the air in race show us or occupy any building or any lot. The said premises not at anytime you sold mortgage least or sublet or occupied by any person or persons who are not full bloods of the so-called, Caucasian and white race. And just two point. Oh, these examples, I just read these are all from right here in Minneapolis, and the rest of Hennepin county, and we compared those two maps, redlining and racially restrictive covenants to our current zoning code. And there's enormous overlap at the open. People could put a little pin in where they lived in the city and the map, we used was the redlining map wants areas, Redline this means that there is no Bank in the country that will give you a conventional mortgage if you attempt to purchase in that area. So we into dozen fourteen legalized AD us, or they're called mother-in-law units are cottages. And in Minneapolis, we said, you could have a cottage in the backyard or you could add another unit into the interior of the home, and that was a way for us to start this conversation because a lot of the concern that comes up when you talk about allowing more housing and single family neighborhoods came up when we proposed a really relatively moderate change. I mean, people say, a lot of things when you start talking about adding more housing, so there's concern about parking about renters about renters being loud or producing a lot of garbage. We have people concerned about folks being able to look over from their accessory dwelling unit into someone's backyard. I was never quite sure. Why you couldn't see in someone's backyard from your house. But the bottom line is change is scary for folks. And for a lot of people in the United States we have, so emphasized in subsidized and celebrated single family home ownership, that a lot of people have a lot of their financial investment in their home. Yes. So how did you get from adding these sort of mother-in-law units and cottages or basement unit to getting rid of single families owning so Minneapolis, every ten years, we required to update our city's master plan for growth? And so we use this as an opportunity to really talk about housing about climate change about race equity in our city, and.
