"Podcast for kids. We're gonna be talking today on this podcast eight. Your grandma's podcast about i more. That's our starting this. Yep that's our an all right if you are a grandma and you're a listener we'd love to hear from you. Yeah please. yeah yeah yeah anyway. We're talking about a movie right. We're doing a few dollars mark few dollars more. It's the second movie in the trilogy by sergio leone from the sixties of italian spaghetti western movies. I loved this movie. I don't know if you liked this movie. I did like this movie. I didn't like it as much as good bad and the ugly because going the is one of those like near perfect movies but this was a dang good watch it's a tad more polished than the previous movie and it's a little less violent and more. I don't know plot driven. Yeah w we get a name. Background for angel is as soon as angeles stepped on screen. This makes his character way more interesting into good the bad and the ugly. Yeah colonel. Douglas mortimer if. You're curious which. I'd like you to call me in bed. Stephen i just short circuited on west some in my brain. Just flip. the fuse. And i had an empty mind from i reached nirvana. I think So this piece assembles a crack team. That would make the ugly which is like part of lights culturally important. Minute pulled people from stain. Italy in west germany which was divided at the time. Yeah eastwood wasn't gonna be in it at all but he saw the italian cut of fistful and decided that he couldn't resist. It was at the time. The seventh highest grossing movie in france the highest grossing movie in spain and high on the list for movies in america so clearly the first one made enough of an impression that people like we should go his fucking movie when it comes out right Despite my review roger ebert and other critics Hand the film entirely saying it was cliche and murder and no plot but today it has a ninety two on rotten tomatoes and from the with review. Tell me yeah mr ebert electronic. Burt get fuck outta here. We talk a lot about like the difference between roger ebert rotten tomatoes and like the difference between those. And what you and. I think about movies almost never any of us agree. The four institutions. It's true the three pillars of american cinema. Roger ebert rotten tomatoes and stephen king club. Podcast truly on the forefront. Hey this movie kinda ruled it also made me realize that like i don't have the vocabulary to talk about film in the same ways that i talk about literature like i just realized like there's a lot of depth happening here and i don't have the education to talk about it of the two of us. Only one of us has taken a film class. And the one that i took was with tony magistrelli. It was about king. So i don't have much to talk about this but i'm going to do my best before i do that. I would like to give you a brief main points. Synopsis boys do indio is an opium addicted. Bank robber and serial rapists to has been broken out of jail by his gang who then murdered like a hundred people bounty hunter mango or the man with no name or blondie ortho stranger as well as his frenemy and former bounty hunter. Colonel mortimer decide to take indio out do this. Mako joins his gang. They trick the gang thinking they are committing robberies. But they're actually picking off gang members one by one a shootout ensues at one of the banks in border city and Hunchback can i say hundred back on. Indios team is kill. Indio still trusts them until they try to break open a safe and he'd kick snare asses. There's lots of other tricks and stuff though take forever to explain. This is not a synopsis. But basically india new bounty hunters all along and strung them along to kick their asses all the time. Almost everybody in this movie dies nearly every character. Indio taunts mortimer with a music pox pocket. Watch all the time. And they have a shootout and mortimer wins Also it turns out that indio sexually assaulted and killed. Mortimer's sister With revenge complete. He declines his half of the money and pieces out into oblivion until we see him in the good the bad. Nearly mako collects all of the money from all eleven boundaries for the bank robbers in the two hundred and fifty grand. That was actually in the safe. Which is crazy. Because that means he goes into the two hundred grand hunt having five hundred grand in a time where that would be like twenty five million dollars so not quite understand where his motivation to keep going by. He's just in it for the threat by the way the whistling bounty hunter in the background at the end of that movie. Is sergio leone. Cool yeah i mean. Everyone knows how much whistling there is. In a good old-fashioned sketti western. Thank you for that brief lots now. It's hard to do a parts nonsense for because a lot of stuff just kind of happens. There's a lot of plots to do things that either do do not work out. And the actual reason they're important is the shifting tide of power between of who starts out really really powerful and dangerous and then over time get kind of whittled down. So it's mostly that. I will say and i know that we've talked about this in every episode. So far bears mentioning. There's a lot of brown face in this Talion people wearing bronze or to be latino. This one was the worst for me. Oh in terms of Brown face yeah. Yeah in terms of it being because you know the first one you have characters and brown face characters not in brown face but they're all kind of the same level of moral ambiguity so it's like well this isn't ideal but at least they're not lake specifically creating stereotypes about let latin people. This one this one we get like the laughing rapist mexican stereotype like we get that specific character in this movie and we get introduced to him and how evil he is when he interacts with what is quite frankly. The latest family ever committed to film. It's like hard to describe if you've watched this movie. How incredibly caucasian. This only one family that he decides to murder is yeah and the white people in this movie are the savior's that come through and kill the not white people And the non white people terrorize everybody..

"The trials of John Muhammad and Lee. Boyd Malvo were scheduled to begin in October of two thousand three. After they were caught. It was decided that the two would be tried in Virginia. At the time Virginia permitted the death penalty for sixteen and seventeen year olds. Prosecutors were hoping to convict both Malveaux and Muhammad and sentenced them to the ultimate punishment. Prince William County would prosecute Mohammed for the murder of Dean. Harold Meyers led by attorney. Paul Ebert and Fairfax County would prosecute Malveaux for the murder of Linda. Franklin led by Attorney Robert Haram but attorneys for Malveaux and Muhammad made an early trial motion to move the cases from those counties. Everybody who lived in this area in the Washington. Dc area was essentially a victim. This is Mark Petrovic. One of lawyers for Malvo's defense team. We all were afraid to be shot at any given time we all pumped our guests and moved around as we pumped our guests. We all dealt with the fear. The anger the frustration. Just the outrage of the situation and so anyone who dealt with that would hold a grudge against anyone who's accused of being involved in it so we wanted jurors who hadn't been in the middle at essentially this big ground zero. We wanted jurors from outside that area to objectively in an unbiased way determine what should happen with the case. Petrovic SAYS TRANSFERRING JURISDICTION IN CAPITAL. Cases is very uncommon. But in this case it was clear that Mohammed and melva would not get an impartial jury anywhere near the DC area and so the motion was approved and the trials were moved to Virginia beach and Chesapeake Bay in Southeast Virginia. But Prince William County and Fairfax County. Were still in charge of putting together the prosecution and Fairfax Police Lieutenant. Bruce Guth was in charge of assembling the Prosecution Task Force we now have Malveaux and Prince. William has Muhammad are jurisdictions all right next to each other. I called a meeting with the ATF the FBI Secret Service discuss a prosecution task force. We would put all the evidence together in one package. If you will for both trials so if Mr Hebron needed for Muhammad he could grab it if Mr Herrera needed for. Mallow he could grab it you know. It's hard enough work in one murder and have these thirteen shootings just in our area. Let alone what else went around the country. You know we knew it was going to be a monumental task goof says. They found an empty office building within a week. They had filled the entire space with dozens of desks interview rooms and computers for over fifty task force members. They quickly pulled a massive team together and started preparations in Fairfax. Anything in a blue binder is a murder file so the blue file thing popped up in my head that for each major thing we need. We're GONNA make a blue file for instance the bushmaster two to three rifle. We had a book that had everything you could want about the rifle. There was a blue book made on caprice where they got caprice. The history of the caprice the interview of the guy who sold them the Caprice Up New Jersey and neck. I was a great win as because Muhammad climbed into the trunk of the car and he thought that was weird. I really liked this car. We might if I climbing the trunk and he goes you know in climbing wherever you want car. Six hundred bucks. I don't care so we ended up in this firearm with about eighty blue books. We had a file cabinet probably thirty yards long over the course of a year prosecutors collected information and prepared their case. Then come the fall. Two thousand three the Task Force Move to Southeast Virginia where the trials were about to begin. We basically rented out a whole half side of this hotel had a big task force room. They wired for computers and phone lines and now we have to fly everybody in from all over the country into Virginia beach instead of the dollar. It was a monumental task. We had two trials with hundred fifty witnesses and each trial after court. We'd meet in Mr Horon sweet or Mr Ebert sweet and we talk about who they want the next two or three days and then we call these witnesses and get them lined up with airplane reservations and tell them where to come in and we have rooms xed out for them and then we had again back to the airport to send them back home and os just worked out really well amazingly. We didn't lose anybody and everybody showed up John. Muhammad's trial was scheduled to begin. I he was being tried on four counts two of which were capital murder. Prosecutors were hoping Virginia Law would provide a path to the death sentence for John Muhammed. Here's Virginia prosecutor. Paul Hiebert Virginia is our caller like sixteen different categories. They can mount a capital punishment showing a minor robbery rape number thing which has to be underlined predicate for. You can get the death penalty or even charted at early success strangely enough to kill more than one person in three years. That's capital case. We had the opportunity to bring every one of those murder to prove that aspect of a trial Muhammad was being tried for one count of capital murder in the shooting of Dean. Harold Meyers on October. Ninth two thousand two. The second capital murder charge came from a new anti-terrorism law implemented in Virginia. After the events of nine eleven under that statute a jury would not have to conclude that Muhammad had actually pulled the trigger to be found guilty only that he had intentionally terrorized a large population of American people. This case would be the first use of the law in a criminal trial because it was so new it was possible for the statute to be challenged and potentially overturned but if found guilty on either count of capital murder Mohammed would be eligible for the death penalty. The third and fourth counts were for conspiracy to commit murder and illegal use of a firearm respectively on October nineteenth. Two Thousand Three Muhammed's trial began in Virginia beach so the Mohammed trial starts in a pick a jury and it turns into a zoo the first trial for the sniper attacks that left the Washington. Dc area traumatized a year ago began with a stunning development. Steiner defended John. Mohammed suddenly asked to represent himself. The judge said he thought Mohammed was making a mistake but granted the request anyway ordering the defense lawyers to stay on as advisors one of the really most alarming moments was when Muhammed stood to represent himself. This is Washington Post journalist. Josh wind he had two of the best lawyers. Possible Johnson's Shapiro and Peter. Greenspun are two of the most experienced trial attorneys in Virginia. They're the people you want representing you a capital case. They have an immense amount of experience and had been making the right constitutional arguments and had been preparing for it for a very long time and he wrested the case away from them. We had never heard from Mohamed at that point and he stood up in court and started presenting a case. Here's an excerpt from John. Muhammad's opening statement read.

"Unusual couple. Who's bitter bruising fights were interspersed with trips to Larache caverns and the kings dominion amusement park who engage in consensual sex, seventy two hours before the mutation even as they plan to divorce there like children. Mr. Ebert said his closing argument. Neither one plays with the whole deck. They just don't have all their spigots open. Yeah. In on fact there. I mean, that's one of the things that I found I like you did fell into this rabbit hole of reading coverage of the period. And you know, there's this presumption that like, we know Howard Stern was a jerk. And didn't think that he really the wife rape is a saying, you know, we know we kind of like new the bad actors. But what was so fascinating. Is you look at, you know, elite media, and I think one of the worst offenders was gay talese writing for the New Yorker, and I found this entire treatise defending the penis, and like doesn't appear to have any rights. I mean, it's really something. And then he says he basically calls marital rape. And oxymoron and says that everyone knows she's allowed to get a headache. Every once in a while. But beyond that, you know, this is basically a made up term. So I mean, even ladies home journal, women's magazines were debating, whether wife rape was a thing. The the headline in a penthouse article written by prominent New York prosecutor was wife rate question Mark who really get screwed. Wow. Yeah. So I mean done some way to make progress as a as a society in that we can agree that marital rape is is it is it is a crime in all fifty states. Now, it was not at the time when lorraina did this, and it was also impossible to prove in many states like in Virginia where she was she needed a witness and they needed to be completely living apart. So that's that was the baseline for proving it, I think you mentioned this in your story. Like how recently all fifty states have come to recognize marital rape. Yeah. It's within the past two. How many years like so in ninety four by the time her trial came around all it was technically Oklahoma, North Carolina or the last two states. It was technically a cry. There was no longer marital exemption to rape. But it still it remains to this day. Activists would tell you probably ten or twelve. States almost impossible to prove they have these requirements to prove it that are just impossible to mate, for instance, living apart or having a witness, and apparently Michael Cohen famously asserted that he didn't think it was the case right by in argument that he had with a reporter about whether or not this happened between an alleged incident between the president and Ivana Trump. I'm speaking of penises. Yes. That is a there's no way to not this that with a rather large part of the story. It is weirdly like, I mean, I guess, of course, it's emphasized. But it wasn't just again, not our magic nation. Even the times coverage is like incredibly detailed coverage of the penis. Yes. I mean, in a way, it's like, the only reason we talk about the story is because of the pain is I mean, imagine if John had cut off some piece of Lorraine a-, you know, it would be another another domestic violence incident that no one ever talked about it was like this cut at no pun intended, cutted manhood. It really got at the war of the gender wars erupting at the time. And it really like it made men terrified look for so many women walk around afraid all of the time. And for the first time, it seemed like men were somewhat afraid, and you know, women would say Lorena Bobbitt became like a verb. It was like a thing that women would use even though she never felt the love of feminist. In fact, a lot of feminists criticized her at the time and said that she what she did set the movement back because people are going to portray all feminists like crazy in wanting to cut their penises off. So even oh God, you go back and read some of these feminists writers and. Offers at the time, the kind of mindset among a lot of them was like this hurts the cause because men are going to portray us as all wanting to like run around with a knife and cut off their manhood. There's two things in other than many things, I guess a lot one is it like what the the abused wife was supposed to be thinking like, but what will this mean for feminism exactly takes action? And the other thing is that you know, what I'm not sure if it would be a terrible thing if men were thinking about that all the time, and that sounds terrible. But let me explain for second that I had the metoo movement has started a lot of conversations one that I've had consistently with my with good well-meaning male allies is trying to explain to them the ways that sexual violence has an impact on women's everyday lives. Like just all the time thinking about like where you park your car where you go for a run like all of that. There's the two main ones for me. It. This gives men just a tiny little insight into what that might be like. If
