"Listen, Katie Okay. News center, The State Health Department today is reporting the largest one day increase in Kobe. 19 infections in Oklahoma. Here's Margot Murano. The number of positive cases has increased by 993 to 21,738. There are four additional deaths and another 47 people in the hospital and a reminder from the Oklahoma Poison Center to keep hand sanitizer out of the reach of small Children. Center says it has received 16 calls in the last seven days on exposure issues. Now there is a concern about some hand sanitizer being distributed and confusing bottles, bottles that look like sports drinks or water bottles. The FDA also said today that some sanitizers label to contain ethanol have actually tested positive for methanol contamination and methanol can be toxic when absorbed through the skin. Charges have been amended against the Tuttle man who allegedly drove his pickup truck into a group of more high school runners back in February, killing three of them and injuring four others. 57 year old Max Townsend was originally charged with three counts of manslaughter Today. Those charges were upgraded to three counts of second degree murder, Cleveland County D a Greg Mashburn told the Oklahoman. The town sons. Blood alcohol level came back lower than initially thought. So with less alcohol in his system, Mashburn says Townsend clearly engaged in dangerous conduct at the time of the crash. Mashburn says that led to his decision to upgrade the charge is to better fit the facts of the case. In the U. S House today. Lawmakers air going over a defense spending bill that includes some contentious provisions. Here's Rachel Sutherland. The $695 billion bill would block the Trump Administration from using Pentagon funds to build a wall on the southern border. House Appropriations Defense subcommittee chair Pete Visclosky calls the Defense Department's diversions of money, habitual abuses of power. But I do want to express my upset with how these actions have irreparably damaged the department's credibility with the committee. The legislation also provides a $1,000,000 for Army installations to change Confederate names. President Trump has threatened to veto any measure that changes the names of military bases. Rachel Sutherland. Fox is the Union School board voted last night to form a committee that would ultimately recommend whether the school Redskins name and mascot should finally be retired. A name has been used since 1945. Superintendent Dr Kurt Hartzler says there have been internal conversations for quite a while about making a change. And, he says now is the time to consider if the name aligns with the district's core values. And a lot man has some explaining to do. After a stolen generator and trailer were found in his backyard.

"Me. You know in Arizona. They had remember in the seventies eighties. You Know I. Younger still in school they had people bought the Apache reservation northeastern Arizona Bunch of landowner, a ninety nine year lease. Ninety nine years came up. They go We want to renew it and go no, but thanks for the house. So now he's got. actual became buying property deeded land. Guess so he's you know the native to that area I guess you know so jurisdictions of what and the precedent set a precedent. Of what I mean, you know. What what? WHAT'S THE PRESIDENT? You things being set here and why? Well, the precedent is being set, is that? The state where the reservation is located. In less everything was done officially to negate whatever treaties were in place. Then? the state has been basically violating the natives by claiming jurisdiction over them for you know, court proceedings and stuff like that this Oklahoma ruling says that no no more is if you're a native American on your own negative on your own reservation, it's only the tribe, and in the case of felonies the federal government that can adjudicate so there's one way or government has been cut out of the. So. There are a lot of cases that were going to the state of Oklahoma that now. The federal government's going to have to to kate and then a whole lot more tried scholastic. We'll see this is one thing that I'm I'm confused. About is their sovereign nation, or they're not, and if they are they considered like a a state in the nation, and then the federal government still has jurisdiction to prosecute certain things and I'm going. Why didn't sound like? You know. Cyber new to me, so I'm so they're just taking this Oklahoma out of the equation. Right only the natives so now. If you're native, you only answer to the tribe and the federal government if you're on the reservation. Free, so yeah, exactly there's another layer and there's a thing that actually Scott's the information that was a major crimes. Act Bask in eighteen eighty five. which gave the feds jurisdiction over I, guess basically everybody, even if you're on a tribal reservation, and they still use that ruling to claimed jurisdiction even over the Indians when they're in within their tribal reservation, and maybe they'll be challenge hopefully so. You know the basic. Ruling. Has Implications not just for other places. Even, it's kind of interesting here within Oklahoma because first of all this applied to criminal cases, but the exact same logic and precedent applies to civil cases. So that opens up all kinds of stuff, and then you have okay, it says state courts don't have jurisdiction well. WHAT'S A STATE COURT OR TURNS OUT IN OKLAHOMA? Everything is a state court. Except for municipal courts with the exception of Tulsa and Oklahoma City which are considered state courts. So. If you're a native American and you're in a small town. And that local. Traffic. Court isn't considered to be state core them. They can still riding the ticket and dragging through traffic court. They can't do it in Tulsa. Tulsa is considered to be a state court. And that's where most of the people at and Salsa I think about half a Tulsa is has reservation is on reservation land? So. Just wondering they're a bunch of casinos you know is that I wish we there. Got More casinos than anywhere else this is. Another thing I'm interested in if you got the. Casinos or other industry? You know it was the only time I ever had I think it was the Mirror Copa Indians east of Scottsdale. And the California was starting to confiscate. S KS. Supporters these seven six to shoot the same rows and AK forty seven rifle knows what the Vietnamese us back in the day and They were ruled by the attorney general or the legislature okay. It's not a banned assault weapon. You know then later an attorney general going. Oh, no, no, no, we don't like that anymore. Now it's got turn it in so safe. SEC amendments for everyone. We made a big deal a you can. We'll give safe storage. Okay, so we never did it. It was just a PR thing, but share for pile freak and call all this stuff and this was the deal. We would store it as storage facility on native American, land we go I go store. Done Maricopa Mall Storage Hangover, whatever and you don't have jurisdiction suck to be you and nate three out well, we can't. You're safe bunker and all other stuff I'm like yeah, that's the ticket you know, so. We were making the point that if you just took your gun from California and you store it, you know for future use, or if you just didn't want to give it up or whatever on native American land that just throws big giant monkey wrench into mandated dignity at all, but what was more surprising to me than anything else is that I'm going? You know who owns the storage facility. It was it. It was a mall area. That had you know it's like no native American owned anything. There was no manufacturing. There is no. It was always by agreement that somebody had some structure or business and go is that by design is of some disincentive? Is there you know native Americans? Don't like running business. I mean you know. I got a bunch of trading stuff all over the place, so I'm wondering you know there's no industry is there? Is there a factory error something I mean anything around you. War some small factories partnerships at the Cherokee nation that have been set up here and there, in fact, I even helped one time it was going through some quality issues, and so they're around, but they're not. They're not you know major corporations or anything? Major I mean it's just you would think that they would have. Some kind of. Benefit you know I don't have to pay Titan so do native Americans Ao? They own a store or they pay in taxes. You know sales tax property I. Mean you go to buy the only other thing I see? Is You know they got like cheaper cigarettes or something? You know I'm just. I'm. Why isn't there any native American industry? Why is there no big mall? D.? They should have some say there's more to story right there. I'm just wondering if you know because I've always wondered. A lot of it has to do with you know in our enemies estate our J.. Knock said that you know they couldn't enslave the Indians, so that's why they ended up committing genocide. Well, now they've figured out how to enslave the Indians and that's what welfare. And a very large proportion of Indians of the native Americans there on welfare, and you know it's just like now with so much. An informant wonder these people are. Off Because of COVID and they're making more money now, so they don't want to go back to work. Well you kind of have that around here with a lot of people because. It's been tested. They're they're GONNA? Lose money if they go to work. They're getting more money from benefits than they do. If they go to work, you know that is a great observation, Mike. You know it's been tested. That's I've seen that. It's you know I remember when I was a kid. My Dad telling you a couple of years ago. Pick Up. From what no, that's part of the deal or something and I'm going what? You know this is so they're doing this from experience deal with the native Americans all right well, this jurisdictional. When we come back, you know. If you're. Just going to be what they are talking about what? They say no. You're a native on native land, and you've been a felony that. I. Got To drive.

Until the September eleventh attacks in two thousand one, the Oklahoma City bombing was the deadliest terror attack in the history of the United States and it remains the deadliest confirmed act of domestic terrorism in American history. Four days after the bombing on April twenty, third nineteen ninety-five President Bill Clinton, attended a memorial service in Oklahoma City called a time for healing. With the hundred ninety six presidential election less than eighteen months away, President Clinton spoke of unity healing over the politics of division and hatred. With that let's listen to bill.

Those here in Oklahoma and those who are all across this great land and many who left their own lives to come here to work hand in hand with you.

What Was the Tulsa Race Massacre?

What Was the Tulsa Race Massacre?

"In Tulsa Oklahoma, a group of scientists and historians is on the verge of unearthing chunk of the city's past that has long been buried and one. Some people may prefer to keep that way. It's a potential mass grave from worst single incident of interracial violence in American history. Beginning may thirty first in nineteen twenty one thousands of armed white. Tulsen's invaded black section of the booming oil town, terrorizing its residence looting, their homes and businesses and burning to the ground, some thirty five square blocks of the city. Before the rampage was over more than ten thousand black people were left homeless, and more than six thousand were turned in camps where they'd stay in some cases for months. We spoke with Scott, Ellsworth, a native Tulsa and a professor of African American history at the University of Michigan. Ellsworth is the author of the Nineteen Eighty two book death in a Promised Land, one of the first books to take a comprehensive historical look at the Tulsa race massacre previously mystically called the Tulsa race riot of nineteen twenty one. He said to this day. We don't know how many died. Reasonable estimates range from I would say forty to his high as three hundred. When the unmarked suspected mass grave and a Tulsa cemetery is excavated in July of two thousand twenty. It may provide a few answers to exactly what happened over those two days and nineteen twenty one. It will be for many a literal. Reopening of a wound festered within the city for nearly a century. The Tulsa massacre of nineteen twenty one did not a word often used to describe such events erupt. The city simply reached. What now seems an inevitable breaking point? In early nineteen, twenty one tulsa was awash cash from the oil boom. The good fortune reached into the north section of the city, mostly populated by black Americans. That later to be known as the Black Wall Street contained one hundred ninety one businesses, including hotels feed store, a roller rink cleaners, mom and pop stores and restaurants plus offices for doctors, dentists and lawyers. The area had at least five churches to a library movie theater and a hospital. Like the rest of the city at that time, the black area also known as Greenwood had its problems alcohol, even under prohibition was readily available. Illegal drugs were easy to find to. As we're gambling and prostitution the whole city, not just greenwood struggled with crime end with lawless punishment less than a year before a white teenager, accused of murder, was taken from jail cell and lynched by a white mob. The police did little to protect him. And Racial Violence against black people was commonplace, even though thousands of black Americans had just returned from fighting in World War. One Jim Crow Laws and pervasive racist attitudes meant that equality remained nothing more than a dream for black Americans and many white Americans. Wanted to keep it that way. Ellsworth route and in two thousand one report commissioned by the State of Oklahoma on then called riot that quote during the weeks and months leading up to the riot, there were more than a few white Tulsen's who only feared. The color line was in danger of being slowly erased a believed that this was already happening. So into that explosive milieu, a black teenaged boy, working as a shoeshiner, had a brief run in with a white teenage girl operating elevator. and. The fuse was lit. The boy was taken into custody. A group of more than two thousand angry white people, some intent on lynching him, possibly prompted by an inflammatory editorial in a white run newspaper gathered on the courthouse steps some armed black war, veterans and others squared off with them there and soon shots were fired. White people from all over the city began their march on the green. What area to tamp down? What many white people saw as an uprising? Their stories of black citizens being murdered in their homes interrupted in their evening prayers. The terror went on for eighteen hours into June first. Despite their sworn duty to serve and protect neither Tulsa police, nor any other government agency assisted the black population. Instead Tulsa police officers helped set some buyers, an all white unit of the National Guard joined the invaders. Other. Public officials provided guns and AMMO two white men. The KKK got involved a semi functioning machine gun was on black. Tulsen's and some reports indicate the airplanes dropped homemade fire starters. Despite being largely outnumbered black Tulsen's fought to protect their homes and businesses and most of all. Greenwood. But in the end, scores of black people and some white people were killed in. Greenwood was left in ruins. The exact numbers of injured and dead. Even after what's to be uncovered in three suspected mass graves may never be known. It's still unclear exactly what happened between the Black Shoeshine Boy Dick Rowland and the white. Elevator Goal Sarah page to spark the massacre. Though one thing is known. She refused to bring charges. Roland was vindicated. For years. Tulsa refused to acknowledge in any meaningful way. What had happened in nineteen twenty one. Nobody has ever been charged or prosecuted for the crimes that occurred during those eighteen or so hours, even those who grew up there ellsworth included were not taught that part of the city's history. The Tulsa race massacre became a terrible and closely held secret. That began to change with Ellsworth's defeated promised land, and some earlier work, then in nineteen ninety-five, when members of the national media descended on Oklahoma City after the bombing of the federal building, they were informed of this other more terrible episode of domestic terrorism in the state's history. More news accounts and more books of the massacre followed and twenty nineteen, the HBO Comic Book Superhero Series Watchmen inspired in part by Tulsa, enlightened many to the story. But pulses failed efforts to come to grips with its deadly past has left scars. Ellsworth said city was robbed of its honesty. You have entire generations growing up in Tulsa who've never heard of this your people growing up with a false reality, a false vision of the land they were on I mean imagine if today right now that you had young people growing up in Manhattan, who had never heard of nine eleven, but there were no books to talk about nine eleven that it's as if it didn't exist. The race massacre was a gigantic myth in the history of Tulsa it was deliberately buried for a long time. With the honor thing of one of at least three suspected mass graves and Tulsa next month will mark another step in the long road to understanding and perhaps one day recovery.

Why Circular Conversational Design is Best with Alison Greenberg, CEO at aflow

"Was reading online. That you have a pretty impressive background you went to Yell. And you studied anthropology you played in the Symphony Orchestra there. And then you did some work in the arts for Awhile and now you work in voice technology and there's been a lot of people that have come from the creative space so I'd love for you to talk about briefly your journey into how and why you got into voice technology years ago. Yeah absolutely well. One of my favorite things about this industry is how cross-disciplinary it is. There's really not one background of people who under boys and I don't think many different in that respect but I will say that really from the time I could talk. Language wasn't just the way I express myself it's Mike Currency and so music is something that I was always drawn to. I played music in high school and College. I still to this day. I studied anthropology because of how central language was to it as a social science. I didn't study English or history. I studied a social science because I loved looking at language as a tool and as a currency especially in ultra contacts and in the voice industry but actually with my company of flow we started with chat bots. Language is very much currency of conversational user. Interfaces or curious as we call them and so you know voice and chat go hand in hand they are. Interbay says that requires specificity precision and entertaining use of language but the design principles across voice and chat. Can you really different? And so- entering Voice Technology. You know it's kind of a misnomer. I didn't enter voice technology. I entered chat and that was because when we started flow. Mico Gandara South Miller was actually the driving force behind beginning not company and he was noticing automation taking he was noticing the role of AI in businesses in communications and he started to build the baht of an NBA all star name Russell Westbrook at the time of Oklahoma City Thunder and that was our first bought and then we started to build from there realizing that we scale communications we could even skill personas and brand identities into these conversational experience and so while we believed that automation and I were powering communication. We also believe that is really immature. I don't know if you hear this often but do people ever talk to you about kind of how I is lacking yes. That's definitely something that comes up and I know especially when it came out a couple years ago and consumers used it. There was kind of frustration and so I feel like there's now this like element of education and awareness of like. No it's growing and and we're working on it and getting people to understand that totally. Yeah I mean in technology. You hear a lot about the hype cycle rate. So we might be in that trough of disillusionment which is a piece of language. I just love it's kind of various the trump disillusionment makes sense. Alexa is a teenager. You know came out. In two thousand four chat bots really the dawn of chat bots was in the mid twenty tonnes. We are looking at technologies. That are not just immature in some time. They're immature in the sense of the amount of work that has to go into making them seem less so this industry needs our help. Our words and our design for it to actually work. It's not intelligent yet right so if a is a teenager you know. Teenagers can crash your car. Teenagers can make a lot of mistakes and do a lot of damage especially on the part of brands but teenagers can also change the world so just look at Greta. Van Ver look at the kinds of young people who are driving social change today. That's the approach that we take to chat and voice it'll flow and match. Why we built the concept of conversational design is because we believe that we have to work together with these systems and with the power moderation and conversation design is actually the most important part of Charlton boys today. If these systems are designed well technology to incredible but it's not going to work welter these her. Yeah which brings me to. You made a comment in another interview. You did how you talked about. Hamas boys conversations are linear and what you do out of flow as you really work on creating a circular conversational design. Can you describe the different? So people understand it and why it's important to what you do at a flow hersher. Yeah so out of what we developed. Circular Conversation Design as our attempts to fix these broken visual and verbal designs. Keeps the industry has kind of had to back dialogue into the tools that we have to build it. And so I think really voice and charter just like any industry were almost only as good as our tools and so what we do to kind of choose actualized or conversation design. We talk about a traffic circle. Have you ever been a England or actually you live in New Jersey? I was GonNa say we definitely have traffic circles in New Jersey? So yes perfect. Yes so we'll have talking to people who've been to New Jersey because you're intimately familiar with the roundabout traffic circle. You know you have to get on a certain point and then you make turtles people who aren't from UK or New Jersey. These very confusing carry. I've learned But the cool thing about around about or traffic circle as you can get on off any talk and so if you miss your exit you just keep going in the circle. You have another opportunity to make that exit once you exit you can drive through the backup but you always have an opportunity to get back on. And that's how human conversations work the tools of the trade up until now have kind of destroyed the potential conversations. I in my opinion because we've mainly used the decision tree right. So that's linear design thinking conversations as linear. But that's not how we speak. You know I could talk to you right now about projects for doing it a flow. We can pivot to women and boys. I could ask you what it's like to live in New Jersey. That's how communication works. There's so many circles within circles. There's so many overlaps in and crossed actions and so we had a great experience actually Boy Summit last summer we were really lucky to be part of Amazon's conversation design workshop. One got to take some great echo. Show fives and They disqualified anyone who designed using a decision tree. And so that kind of shows you the way that the industry has been. I know a lot of designer still used decision trees. And it's because it's how away to understand the computer logic but we don't conversational napster and we think of them as a set of nodes that are all linked to one another wherever and whenever possible in a circular fashion and just like that traffics. Are you have to be able to get on and get off at any point? In time we should be able to return to the part of the flow to the extent that the platform we build allows us to do so we should be able to return to order the flow midway through at via

COVID-19: What the Autopsies Reveal

"Gibbs reports on how pathologists are starting to get a much closer look at the damage that covert nineteen does to the body by carefully examining the lungs hearts kidneys and other organs of people who have died while infected with the novel Corona Virus. Wait spoke with experts at the Cleveland Clinic. And the University of Washington who have performed these high risk autopsies very few of which have been done so far in the United States. Covert nineteen is a new disease and doctors have been struggling to figure out how best to treat it putting people on ventilators as always a last resort for other diseases typically about half the patients who go onto a ventilator do not survive but Kobe nineteen patients seemed to do even worse on mechanical ventilation a study in the UK found that only about a third of corona virus patients survived that experience and in a report published on April Twenty second in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Researchers found even more alarming outcomes recently in New York City analyzing data from twelve large New York hospitals during March. They found that out of three hundred twenty patients on ventilators. Two hundred and eighty two died so only about one in nine survived mechanical ventilation. We know this. New Corona virus damages the lungs. But how exactly does it differ in important ways from influenza and other VIRAL INFECTIONS? Some experts have suggested that the virus can infect and damage the heart as well and maybe the kidneys or even the brain when people are seriously ill with Cova nineteen. They seem to be at higher. Risk of blood clots. But it's really hard to determine from lab tests and fuzzy medical images whether it's the virus damaging these other organs or whether the body's own immune system fouling up the works as it generates massive inflammatory response to combat the corona virus. Any kind of lung injury can result in acute respiratory distress syndromes. This is a disease process that we've known about for a long. It's a very typical pattern of injury that we see in the lungs when they're injured for many many different kinds of reasons. That's disarray Marshall. A pathologist at the University of Washington. She says that it's often the cascading organ failure triggered by acute respiratory distress syndrome or A. Rds The causes elderly people to die from influenza and firefighters to die from smoke inhalation and cancer patients to die from reactions to chemotherapy. The pressing question. We need to answer for Kobe. Nineteen is whether it's just a rds that makes the disease deadly or whether this new diseases different and even more complicated to treat them what doctors have seen before well if you watch TV you know what medical examiners do when they want to figure out what killed somebody. There's just no substitute for a thorough and detailed autopsy earlier this month researchers published the first English language autopsy results on people who died after becoming infected with the novel Corona Virus. The paper appeared in the American Journal of Clinical Pathology on April tenth. It describes to interesting cases both from Oklahoma case one was seventy seven year old man who had cycled between fever and chills for six days before finally calling for an ambulance on March twentieth. He had high blood pressure and some other health issues but no cough on the trip to the hospital. He was gasping for air and his heart stopped by the time they arrived at the emergency room. It was too late. The gentleman had not seen a doctor for his fever. He had not been tested for Kobe. Nineteen so it wasn't clear what had caused the heart attack taking his life. The Medical Examiner's team in Oklahoma City decided that it was important to find out they swabbed the man's nasal passages and also his lungs both swabs tested positive for the SARS. Kobe virus and chest xrays showed what they described as complete white out in. What would normally be dark empty lung? Cavities doing an autopsy on a Kobe. Positive body is risky but they had the special protective equipment and high containment room. They needed to do it and maybe they could learn something that would help save some of the hundreds of thousands of people around the world who will fight cove in nineteen for their lives in the months to come so they laid his body on the dissecting table and they opened them up. The team contacted a well-known lung pathologist at the Cleveland Clinic to help them interpret what they saw especially as they examined tissue samples from bears organs under the microscope. My name is Sanjay Mukhopadhyay. I'm director of pathology at the Cleveland Clinic. Autopsies give you another deeper look into tissue. That is actually several layers of resolution higher than what you can get from a history a physical examination routine laptops even the highest resolution CD. Scans none of them. Even approach the resolution that you can get from an autopsy. The medical examiner had noticed that. This man's lungs were two to three times heavier than usual. A Common Consequence of AIDS pathologist actually referred to that syndrome by a different name. One that describes the end result of the disease lung cells. They call it diffuse. Lv alert damage in that gentleman. We found diffuse Alveoli damage under the microscope. When you take a breath and it goes down your windpipe. The windpipe actually branches and to do and when goes into the left lung and one goes into the right and then those branches of the windpipe branch like the branches of a tree. You know they get smarter than sponsored smaller as you go. Further and further away and the end point of the branch is what we call an Lvn Louis or colloquially you can call it an air sac and what that is just a very tiny balloon. You need a microscope to see it. And they're just cows and thousands of those little balloons in the lung. That's what makes up the lamp so each time. You inhale you inflate thousands of microscopic Vealy as the ED enters into that little balloon with oxygen in it. The point of the balloon is to take that oxygen into the bloodstream. The wall of the balloon has little blood vessels in it so in the normal language. Dicap- breath the oxygen goes from the middle of the balloon into the one of the balloon. And that's where the arteries are and the oxygen goes into your blood cells. Red Blood Cells. We call them. And then that Dixit back to the heart and the heart center the oxygen to the rest of the body for this exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide to work properly. The thin lining of the air SAC has to be very close to the walls of the blood vessels. Now what happens in in actually in any severe viral infection is that the virus starts causing damage reading a digest. I which is the back of the throat and then all the way down so all the way down the windpipe down the branches to the smallest branches and then into the air sex and when it gets into the AIR SACS. Call that a viral pneumonia. What's happening is actually. The virus is damaging the walls of the those little webs of capillaries that surround the walls of the air. Sacs start to leak proteins fluids white blood cells and debris from destroyed lung seep into the air sacs the debris clogs the balloons. But maybe even more important it also thickens the walls of the air sacs. Literally it's making a barrier for the oxygen to go from the middle of the relates to the bloodstream and so this is the reason that oxygen levels are so low in these patients who are very sick from ovid. The researchers concluded that case won the seventy seven year old man had died from Kobe. Nineteen even though he had never been diagnosed with it. Mukhopadhyay said he was struck by similar. The pattern of organ damage was to what he's used to seeing from autopsies on people who died from other viral infections. It's actually very similar to what happens in influenza and at just to mention a few other examples. Sars you know the SARS from two thousand to two thousand three identical merced Middle Eastern disparaties syndrome identical findings. I did autopsies and deported them on H. One and one when that happened the swine flu identical findings and I give you one more example. You know the when the vaping thing happened just recently and many people were getting sick from the most sick patients but actually developing diffuse. Lbj damage case too was different. This man had to the hospital a day earlier on March nineteenth. He was only forty two but had myo tonic. Muscular dystrophy a hereditary disease that causes muscles to weaken or atrophy. Sometimes so much that food can back up from the stomach. Go down the wrong tube into the lungs where causes bacterial pneumonia? He felt sharp abdominal pains and went to the hospital where a cat scan showed fluid in his lungs just hours later his heart gave out any passed away although he was labelled as community acquired pneumonia and died and was found to be covert positive. The microscopic examination. This patient does not support the idea that he died of Gobert so there was no damage instead. They found food particles and bacterial infection in the airway clear signs of aspirational pneumonia. So case to died with cove in nineteen but he did not die of covert nineteen. Which makes it very interesting because it brings up the issue of. How often is this happening? How often are people who are PAS? Different went on a nasal swab dying of things other than Kobe. I put that question to Desert Marshall whom we heard from earlier. I'm the director of autopsy after De Services at the University of Washington Medical Center since early. March Marshall has performed more than a dozen autopsies of people who died after testing positive for corona virus infection. She says the results of those autopsies have been submitted to a Medical Journal for publication but are still undergoing peer review. Marshall says that the risk of infection that this fires poses has changed how they perform all autopsies regardless of whether the person was suspected to have covert nineteen. Or not so. We've actually started to swab all of our students and get those results before will perform an autopsy in our facility. That isn't the negative pressure sweet so his Marshall also found that like case to in Oklahoma some patients are dying of something else but turning out to have corona virus infection as well we have not. We have not had any unexpected positive results yet. It's still a limited number but of the probably fifteen that we've done. We have not had a positive comeback where we weren't expecting it. And what about the finding from case one in Oklahoma here in Washington are most of the Kobe? Nineteen patients dying from more or less standard AIDS or the autopsies revealing evidence of the virus infecting and damaging other organs as well hearing concerns of the clinicians and folks on the front lines there's the virus infecting the heart or is it just kind of secondary affects related to the critical illness. Is there excess? Clotting related to this disease. Different things like that. It looks like it's helping us to see that Cova did is actually causing typical acute respiratory distress syndrome. Initially there were thoughts that it was behaving a bit differently. But I think as we get more numbers of people and there's less of the individual variability the vast majority of these cases are showing the typical pathologic features of acute respiratory distress and Which we call a diffuse Alveoli damage. Pathology it does look like it. Is that phenomenon and there's not something Speaking out pathologically. That's different in a way that will inform them that you know. They should probably continue to use. The evidence based tried and true therapies for areas in particular marshal says. They aren't seeing an unusual number of small blockages and blood vessels. That would require treatment beyond the usual blood thinners such as Heparin nor has her group or other. She has heard from around. The country found the corona virus causing serious heart infections in the autopsies. They

"Has been postponed that was march eleventh when an announcer called off the Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz game. Just before tip off. Most of US remember that day it was the day. President trump announced the travel restrictions from Europe. The day Tom Hanks and read a Wilson said they had tested positive for Kovic nineteen and the day the NBA suspended the rest of the season after Rudy. Gobert the Utah Jazz Center head tested positive for the virus. You may remember go bare as the player who touched all the microphones at a Utah Jazz media event as a prank. He didn't know he was positive at the time and later apologized for it. I'm a huge basketball fan myself so I was crushed when I heard the news of the NBA suspension. But of course public health comes first to me that really was the watershed moment in the entire. Corona Virus Cova nineteen conversation and not just sports but in our culture. Christine Brennan has been covering sports for three decades. She says she hasn't seen anything like this in her entire career. I think it woke the nation and the world frankly up to the significance and the seriousness of the corona virus pandemic after the NBA suspended season. It was like a domino effect. Major league soccer in the NHL have suspended their seasons for now while Major League. Baseball is hoping to open season in May according to ESPN and the NCWA cancelled it spring and winter championships as a wolverine go blue. I love March madness. It's one of my favorite times of the year. I even had tickets to the final four this year so I was really disappointed when that didn't happen but the threat to our health and safety was too great and it wasn't just the safety of the fans it was for the safety of the athletes to eleven thousand. Olympians expected to compete in Tokyo. This summer had their plans. Put on. Hold the Twenty Twenty Summer Games now postponed until twenty twenty one. The Games have been canceled three times before. But this is the first time they've been postponed and of course even a date. That far ahead doesn't come without concerns. Christine Brennan told me well we in the summer of two thousand twenty one. We'll people feel comfortable. Flying on planes overseas will the Japanese fans feel comfortable being in big stadiums and the answer is over and over experts. I've talked to. We have no idea. We just do not know but by that point of course a lot of these. Olympic athletes will have lost months and months of training. I just don't think we know yet and I think that uncertainty is so difficult for athletes. Consider that Olympic athlete. Their whole lives for this one moment. I was hardly know just as we train for for almost a year to two years. Just make the Olympic team. That's odd the beater Amman. An Olympic distance runner twenty twenty was the fifth time he's qualified at forty three. He's also the oldest American to run the marathon in the Olympics. You know before before the device you have a goal does the one thing you have like road races coming up you. Have you have something to get ready for this time? Everything's on the air. I just training just to stay fit and the sports world isn't just waiting on the sidelines. In the midst of the Pandemic Major League Baseball is now participating in a nationwide Corona Virus Antibody Study League employees spouses and players volunteered to participate to help give a better understanding of how prevalent this virus really is so I go is not to get an obese specifically back to work go in our research is really to get a bit of understanding of what the true prevalence looks like across the nation. I spoke with Daniel Lichner. The president and lab director of the Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory. They were great pot down in a great organization because the head nationwide coverage that we could access individuals that were I seem to matic regular part of the general population. You know from team owners all the way down to hotdog vendors and be sales people on Game Day and everything in between you're looking at the MLB it sounds like sort of a microcosm then of the country Representing different demographics of our country. Can Can you talk me through how it was administered? Then in how quickly then did they get results? Some people could do drive-thru program where they have a bunch of their technicians. Physicians trainers and the Individuals with the drive through. Stick their finger out the window get fingerprint can get the result literally in a matter of minutes and it seems like most people would fundamentally want to know. Then am I now essentially immune can I get infected again? I think which too soon to say what that immunity looks like now. The federal government is slowly making plans to reopen the country. As I said earlier president trump has asked major league sports commissioners to be apart of that conversation the commissioners have a tough job. They're weighing a lot of things. In making the decision of how in win to get back to work commissioners work for the owners and their league and and the owners are going to want to start playing. They're going to want to start making money again. They're not liking the losses the financial losses that they're taking of course no one is the commissioners also have to weigh the very significant health risks. Not just for the players and their families and the referees and the coaches and the TV people and the and the media people But also the fans in the stands. And if you're drawing people into a stadium and if it becomes a corona virus hotspot and all of a sudden explodes. That is the fear of every commissioner in every sport you open up too soon you bring people together and all of a sudden you have another corona virus bomb sports says we know it may not be the same for a long time the NFL draft. Which starts tonight. We'll be held. Virtually for the first time as was the WNBA draft last week. The League plans to start its regular season in September and the draft helped set that into motion. Here's NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in an interview with ESPN. Obviously it's a different year for all of us. We had to make modifications in our offseason program We've had to make significant changes to our draft And those are all appropriate and their right to do. And we you know part of what this is about is continued to work from home by-product from home continue to do things we're supposed to do and be prepared. There's also the possibility that spectator less sports will become the new normal Christine Brennan predicts that will happen at the PGA men's golf tournament when it comes back in June and the masters in November. We could see an a masters without spectators. And that's GonNa look very strange to a lot of people. Although my prediction here is that within a couple of days of watching some of these sports events. If you watch a baseball game without spectators day is not gonNA look a strange the next day and by the third or the fourth day. You're going to be totally used and you're just going to be happy. You're watching baseball again. I think sports is walking a very fine line. It's kind of a tight rope. We want sports back. It'll make people happy it'll signal this openness that maybe we're we're coming out of this and yet you don't WanNa move too fast. Olympic runner of the Bearman thinks that the twenty twenty one Olympics will be a history making record breaking year. But I think he's GonNa going to unite us. I'm just GONNA have so much energy like a lot of things. Going every athlete winner represent contract because they know what their country went through so everybody wanted to do when do their best Magic Johnson also remains hopeful America. All of us who live in this great country that we live in. We need sports especially in a time like this but only if everybody is safe

"During the twenty minute ceremony officials placed a wreath in front of the building. Rescuers joined with their families and other onlookers who red roses onto the rubble. As the workers filed out industy hard hats and uniforms. Hundreds of people applauded for ten minutes. Workers kept their eyes downcast in some wiped away tears. Two and a half weeks later what remained of the Alfred. P Murrah building was demolished. Brought down by two strategically placed charges. The Oklahoma bombing shook the very foundations of security in America and things changed after that day on May Twenty First Nineteen Ninety five in response to the bombing. Us President Bill Clinton permanently closed the White House section of Pennsylvania Avenue to cars and trucks previously. Twenty six thousand cars a day pass by the White House. America's main street had been open since the beginning of the US Republic through four president assassinations and multiple wars. But not anymore to improve White House. Security eleven steps were taken including putting in more bulletproof glass in the White House. Windows and traffic behind the White House was also blocked off. Meanwhile the search for John Doe number two continued for about two months after the bombing. People were scared. What if he was planning a second attack? Many false alarms of someone being questioned or arrested were reported by the media the F. B. I. received over fourteen thousand tips. A second more detailed sketch was released. In some speculated that it might be Terry Nichols Husky twelve year old son but then in mid June two months after the bombing the FBI quietly announced that John Doe number two had been found and they concluded he wasn't involved in the Oklahoma City bombing. John DOE number. Two was actually an innocent army private from the nearby base at Fort Riley. Who just happened to be at the Ryder truck rental at the same time as McVeigh but there were other people who would be implicated in the tragedy during the two years. That McVeigh plan the bombing. He visited several times with another army. Buddy Michael Fortier and his wife Lori. They shared his anti-government ideas and on more than one occasion mcvay described to the forty years. What he planned to do they didn't help. Mcveigh like Terry Nichols did. But they did nothing to stop the attacks or warn authorities. Mcvay also wrote a letter to his sister just before the bombing warning her that something big was about to happen. She two did nothing to intervene. Jennifer McVeigh and Lori Fortier both received immunity in exchange for testifying against McVeigh at his trial. Michael Fortier also testified against mcvay in a plea agreement. He pleaded guilty to gun charges and received a twelve year jail sentence fortier admitted he transported stolen guns with McVeigh that were sold to finance the bombing forty or was released from jail in two thousand and six after serving. Ten Years Terry Nichols was eventually charged in connection with the bombing and in December nineteen ninety-seven following a federal trial. Nichols was found. Guilty of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and eight counts of involuntary manslaughter. In the deaths of eight federal employees. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole Nichols was then charged on state charges of murder in two thousand four. He was convicted on one. Hundred and sixty one counts of first degree murder but the jury was deadlocked on whether he should receive the death penalty and so he was sentenced to one hundred and sixty one consecutive life sentences with no possibility of parole. On June second nineteen ninety-seven Timothy McVeigh was found guilty. On eleven federal charges including conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and eight counts of first degree murder. He was sentenced to death. The victims of the Oklahoma City bombing have been given not vengeance but justice and one young man met. The Fadi chose for himself six years ago for the survivors of the crime and for the families of the dead. The pain goes on final. Punishment of the guilty cannot alone. Bring peace to the innocent. It cannot recover. The loss or balanced scales entered is not meant to do so today. Every living person who was hurt by the evil done in Oklahoma City can rest in the knowledge that there has been a reckoning June. Eleventh two thousand and one. Mcveigh was executed by lethal injection at a federal prison in Indiana. He spent the final hours before his death watching television sleeping and eating two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream which was his final request. Ten members of the victims families and survivors of the bombing. Watch the execution from a room. Beside the death chamber other survivors and family members of the Victims Watch the execution through a closed-circuit television feed more than six hundred fifty miles away in Oklahoma City McVeigh didn't make verbal statement before the execution but in a statement he quoted a section of the poem invictus which reads in part. I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul. This poem was written in eighteen. Eighty five and it's been quoted in the past by world leaders such as Winston Churchill and recited by POW's the Vietnam War and by Nelson Mandela. While he was in prison on Robben Island it has inspired many to remain STOIC invoke self discipline and fortitude in the face of adversity but mcvay twisted it to mean something much more sinister.

"On April. Twenty third four days after the bombing. A ninety minute prayer service was held at the Oklahoma State fairgrounds about two and a half miles away from the blast site. More than twenty thousand people stood in line for nearly three hours to pray with President Clinton and the evangelist Preacher Billy. Graham for the victims of the disaster the massive crowds spilled from the state fairgrounds arena to an exhibition hall and a Baseball Stadium. Where the prayer service was broadcast loudspeakers the anger. You feel this valid. But you must not allow yourselves to be consumed by it. The hurt you feel must not be allowed to turn into hate but instead into the search for justice after the service Clinton met with the mother of Little Bailee Almon. The baby who was photographed being carried out of the building in the arms of a firefighter. Clinton told Aaron Almond that he was sorry. His eyes brimmed over with tears as he hugged her. The next day Bailey was buried in a tiny white coffin covered with pink carnations white daisies and a pink ribbon. That read Miss Bailey. The stories of the dead. Children were absolutely heartbreaking. Two little brothers aged two and five. Who were buried in a coffin together? Because their family couldn't bear the thought of them being separated a four year old girl who was killed in the blast. She was at the building with her grandparents. Who were at the Social Security Office to fill out some paperwork? Her grandparents bodies were missing in the rubble. A mother who ran to the scene and frantically searched the area for her son. She had dropped him off at the Daycare Center that morning. She climbed the pile of debris in front of the building until rescue workers. Begged her to leave when our son's body was found and sent to a funeral home. Funeral director persuaded her not to look at his body. Because it was too badly mangled. After the prayer service rescuers continued their work using jackhammers and chainsaws to remove a three meter. High pile of rubble pancaked on the area nine floors of concrete steel rods air ducts. Electric cables and furniture were telescoped into an area of the basement. Now called the pit by firefighters as they got closer to the rubble from the daycare center. They began to uncover children's shoes pieces of clothing and coloring books. With every step rescuer stumbled and fell. They wore through kneepads and boots during a two hour shift as they cleared one area they race to shore up leaning walls and collapse ceilings with huge pieces of timber and steel girders. It was a massive task that seemed never ending and with every new discovery. More Soro.

"When McVeigh registered at the Dreamland Motel in junction city. Kansas five days before the bombing he gave a home address of Decker Michigan. That address led agents to a farm belonging to James Nichols James. Had a brother named Terry Nichols who used to live on the farm as well but had recently relocated to Kansas? Both James and Terry had links to a paramilitary group called the Michigan Militia. The same day McVeigh was arrested. The Nichols brothers. Were also taken into custody for questioning and held as material witnesses before we continue with the story of the Oklahoma City bombing. Let's take a second here to talk about. American militias there at the center of this story and these extremist anti-government groups were a growing phenomenon in the US. In the ninety s I already mentioned the deadly raid by federal officials in Waco Texas in Nineteen ninety-three but there was also one in Ruby Ridge Idaho in Nineteen ninety-two in that case things went horribly wrong when ATF agents and US marshals went to arrest right wing activist Randy Weaver for selling illegal weapons weaver's wife and fourteen year old son along with a US marshal were killed during an eleven day standoff at the family's remote cabin weaver eventually surrendered but the actions by agents at Ruby Ridge along with the deadly siege at Waco outraged fringe segments of society which included militia groups members of those groups fervently supported gun rights and many had a burning hatred for the government. They call themselves patriots. And we're prepared to defend the country against its own leaders among their concerns was the belief that the government planned to wage a war against citizens who refused to give up their guns the Michigan militia. Who the Nichols brothers had been linked to was one of the most prominent of these groups and during the nineties reportedly had up to ten thousand.

"More than a city block away from the Federal Building. Investigators found a rear axle. That they believed was part of the truck that carried the bomb. The force of the explosion sent two hundred and fifty pounds of twisted metal rolling through the air it landed on the hood of a parked car narrowly missing three people that. Axel was stamped with a vehicle identification number so investigators were able to quickly trace it back to a Ryder rental agency. Two hundred and forty five miles away in junction city Kansas agents race to that shop but found the license used to rent. The truck was a fake but the owner of the writer agency was able to provide enough of a description so that composite sketches of two suspects were prepared on April twentieth. The sketches of John Doe Number One and John Doe number two were released to the public and authorities confirmed they did not appear to be Middle Eastern and the owner of the writer. Agency said they didn't speak with accents. Attorney General Janet Reno announced a two million dollar reward for information leading to arrests in this case investigators in junction city. Kansas interviewed everyone in town. Hoping anyone else had also seen the two men they went to the dreamland motel and asked if anyone matching the sketches had stayed there the manager remembered a man who looked like John DOE Number One. They checked records in this time. John DOE number. One had not used an alias. He signed the Card Timothy McVeigh. Meanwhile McVeigh was still sitting in Noble County jail in Perry Oklahoma and he was just hours away from a scheduled arraignment that could have resulted in his release on five hundred dollars. Bail for the gun and traffic charges but before that could happen the FBI traced mcvay to the jail cell in Perry and contacted authorities with instructions. Not Release Him. Attorney General. Janet Reno broke the news to awaiting nation director. Freeh and I have just spoken with the president and I am pleased to announce that one of the individuals believed to be responsible for Wednesday's terrible attack on the mirror of federal building. In Oklahoma City has been arrested. Timothy McVeigh aged twenty seven who we previously call John Doe Number One. The man with the Light Brown crewcut was arrested by local authorities on a traffic violation about sixty miles from Oklahoma City on Wednesday morning. About an hour and a half. After the explosion occurred at the time of his arrest. He was in the possession of a firearm. He has been in the local jail since the arrest he will be taken into custody by the FBI searches are being planned and executed at several locations around the country this afternoon. I remind everyone that John Doe number two remains at large. He should be considered armed and extremely dangerous. There is a strong likelihood that other persons are involved in this tragedy as well in the county jail and Perry Oklahoma. Fbi agents arrested McVeigh. He was transported in handcuffs and leg irons from the small jail to a waiting van. That took him to a helicopter that would take him back to Oklahoma City for an arraignment when he emerged from the courthouse in Perry Oklahoma. It was the first time the world saw the face of the man accused of this horrible act of terrorism. He was dressed in is orange prison jumpsuit and showed no emotion as a crowd of at least two hundred fifty people booed and shouted baby killer and bastard as he was led to a waiting van.

"When the Sun came up on April Twentieth Downtown Oklahoma City still looks like a war zone. Every single street was littered with broken glass. A one story building two and a half blocks away collapsed after being weakened by the blast at least seventy five. Downtown buildings were damaged beyond repair including some of the city's oldest churches at the bomb site. The search for survivors had slowed to a hopeless crawl station. There's there's no semblance on any of the floors that remaining to the office environment Then you might make a semblance of a desk or foul cabinet. Best Gear sucked out from the team. This morning was After putting their heads together through the night and looking at it we're probably looking at four to six days before they can give meaning. High percentage of the assurance. Building is clear. There were still some unexplored. Cavities that might support human life. But there was little hope of finding anyone alive on the lower and remember. The daycare center was on the second floor inside the wreckage. The stench of decaying flesh had become so strong that firemen and medical examiners had to wear masks and smear vicks vapor rub or oil of winter green under their noses bodies were visible but they couldn't be extricated from the debris at the medical examiner's office authorities were using dental records fingerprints and birthmarks to identify the dead medical authorities. Said the first seventy two hours would be critical in the search for survivors and when that deadline passed without finding anyone else alive in the rubble. Weary firefighters continue to search anyway vowing to stay on the job until they had explored every cavity might sustain human life. The search was a painfully slow version of an old fashioned fire brigade one bucket out of time. Rescuers cleared the rubble bypassing. Plastic buckets along human chains that snaked back to wheelbarrows at the end of the line the FBI agents waited to sift each load for possible evidence as they burrow deeper. They began finding limbs pieces of bodies and clothing while search and rescue operations continued. An intensive hunt began for whoever was responsible for the bombing unaware that he was actually already in custody in Perry Oklahoma following that traffic. Stop on thirty. Five state Governor Frank Keating couldn't comprehend who could commit such a horrible act of violence the vicious animals that did this. Their crimes are unspeakable. They're against humanity their unforgiving. This is a what is behind us is a is a is an act wasn't active unspeakable horror and tragedy in Washington. President Bill Clinton learned about the explosion from his press secretary at about ten thirty. Am on the day of the bombing. Just as the president was beginning an Oval Office meeting with the Turkish Prime Minister. The White House Chief of staff left the meeting about a half an hour later with instructions from President Clinton to call Attorney General Janet Reno and make sure that federal agencies were coordinating their responses and had all the resources they need it proceeded on the theory that it was a terrorist attack against the government and Raya Federal Law Enforcement Officials Emergency Management personnel and military forces were dispatched to Oklahoma City in an operation that constituted one of the biggest responses to a crime in American history. The Firearms Bureau said national. Emergency teams to coordinate the examination of the bomb site the analysis of the explosives and the search for fragments of the vehicle in which they believe the bomb was planted. The FBI sent four special agents to manage the investigative operation and a twenty four hour. Fbi command center with four hundred telephones was established in Oklahoma to coordinate the work of explosive teams. Bomb technicians and portable scientific gear. Used to analyze chemical residues. The president later dispatched the head of FEMA to Oklahoma City on the afternoon of the attack. President Clinton left the Oval Office periodically to watch news reports from the scene on TV in his secretary's office. He was troubled by what he saw especially the pictures of children. Who'd been killed? He also discussed the situation with Oklahoma's governor and members of the state's congressional delegation later. He wrote remarks in Longhand then went to the White House. Briefing Room at about five fifteen pm to deliver his remarks to the waiting reporters the bombing in Oklahoma City was an attack on innocent children and defenseless citizens. It was an act of cowardice and it was evil the United States will not tolerate it and I will not allow the people of this country to be intimidated by evil cowards. He was joined at the news conference. By attorney. General Janet Reno who was grilled by reporters over who might be responsible for the attack twisted. That happened on the second anniversary of the pursuit again. We are pursuing all leads. We cannot tell exactly what happened or who is responsible and it would be better not to comment until we can conclusively talk about it. Does anyone called to claim responsibility for this? Any credible group again. I don't think that I should comment on the evidence because to do so would hinder. The investigation was a car-bomb again. I cannot confirm any evidentiary leads that we're pursuing because I think that would hinder the investigation mother government or governments or would military retaliation the appropriate media. I don't think that we should deal with what ifs. I think. We should make sure that those people who are responsible and pursued and brought to justice at this point authorities simply didn't have any solid leads or suspects so investigators considered two possibilities. The I was put this bombing in fact be linked to the WACO seizure since the blast occurred on the second anniversary of the fiery ending to that siege if you're not familiar role in nineteen ninety-three local ATF. Agents attempted to raid the compound of the branch Davidians in Waco Texas looking for illegal explosives agents ended up in a gunfight fight with members of the cult then following a fifty one day standoff the Fbi tear-gas the compound and the Davidians set multiple fires more than eighty people were killed in the flames including twenty two children. The aggressive response by federal agents triggered criticism from right wing militia groups and other anti government factions. Some law enforcement officials. Thought it was possible. They had something to do with the bombing in city but others disagreed. They thought there was no way. The branch Davidians or militia had the technical expertise to build such a massive bomb. The second possible cause focused on the chance that the attack had been the work of Islamic militants like those who bombed the World Trade Center in February nineteen ninety-three but if that were the case it was unclear why they would target Oklahoma City. Some middle groups held meetings there and the city was home to at least three mosques but of the estimated five million Muslims in the US in one thousand nine hundred ninety five very few actually lived in Oklahoma City several news organizations including CNN reported that investigators were questioning several men described as being Middle Eastern in appearance to in Dallas one. In Oklahoma City and another in London England some Arab American organizations expressed fear of backlash and said it was unfair to implicate Muslims without any evidence in the confusion following the bombing. Investigators really struggled to find a solid lead. Then they got a break would eventually take them down a completely different. An unexpected path.

I've known I knew a guy who was was he's a minority himself, and he was a totally normal guy. And then the next thing I see him popping up on my Facebook like posting all this pro Waffen SS bullshit. I'm like what the fuck half into. You was like, quite and Biggs B the wind. White supremacist. What is it? You have or against black people. How much time have you got? Yeah. With mcveigh. I mean, I think maybe going to war played a part. But I mean, I just think he was had a odd upbringing. He was an odd, dude. And he was real susceptible to to be radical into. It's a number of things coming together. You know? I mean, a lot of people were shipped off to the Gulf war. You know, and you know, just like I brought up before Mark Konia want to the war in Iraq saw some of the same things at least, you know, as far as the the massive amounts of killing but still went to a very different place in life. So I mean, there's something about your personal psychology in just your own manner of thinking that plays into that so much and that's hard to quantify. You know, man. I think it's the way people cope right after I left the ambulance service. We lost a lot of medics for drugs one after the other keep getting arrested, you know, for doing drugs, and it was kinda like, it's horrible. What you see in everything that's unexcused? And I mean, everyone like you said, Jack, everyone's got choices, you know, how they decide to cope with things. I mean like Kevin said himself. I mean, he turned us up and subunits at first and was eventually able to to see the light. But you know, it's one thing I wanted to mention about the article before ago is while Kevin was teaching at Florida state. He was recalled to Oklahoma City to testify in the Terry Nichols trial, which was a state was the state of Oklahoma trial, and he got up on the stand. And he told his story about you know, hit the night before the bombing. And the federal government decided, you know, they did I don't I don't I don't know what it was. But they didn't use his testimony. But. You know, he said it was it was hard because they kind of blew him off. But one of the victims one of the one of the the father of one of the children died came up to him and thanked him for talented story while with conspiracy. I mean, did did they not use his testimony because there some bigger plan or did it really does not fit into their narrative? Just the prosecution's case. And I don't think it's anything to ferry in the feds. Of course, like, it's Tim McVeigh. He just killed one hundred sixty eight people like they wanna slam dunk right Nichols to it was it was the Nichols case..

"Miraculously investigators were able to find an intact piece of the Ryder truck that had the vehicle identification number on it, and axle of the truck had been blown to blocks away from the explosion investigators traced vehicle identification. Number two, the writer facility where McVeigh had rented the truck when the owner of the rental agency was able to help the FBI make a sketch of McVay. And at this point on force -ment realized that they were not dealing with a Middle Eastern suspect. McVeigh had used his real name to sign for the rental truck and at the motel in Kansas, which the FBI quickly traced him to. He'd also signed his own name on the charge sheet at the Perry police station where he was taken after his arrest unlawful possession of a firearm. A misdemeanor under normal circumstances. McVeigh would have had a court date said, and then be. Released. However, on that particular day, the judge's sign to McVeigh's case was booked with other cases. McVeigh was conveniently held in jail for two days until April twenty. First nineteen ninety-five on the day. McVeigh was scheduled to be released from the Perry County jail federal agents track down his name from his misdemeanor charges arrived at the jail and took him into custody. This was a very big break for law enforcement who knows how long the manhunt would have gone on for if McVeigh had been allowed to just leave, knowing what we know about McVeigh it would only have led to more death. McVeigh's driver's license was confiscated when he was arrested. His listed address was the ranch of Terry Nichols brother. James. Remember on the day of the bombing Nichols was safe at home with his family in Kansas. It's unclear why he didn't take steps to avoid arrest when he heard of the bombing, regardless of his re. Reasons. Nichols learned. He was being sought for arrest in turn himself in on April twenty. I finally, Michael Fortier and his wife Lori who knew about McVeigh's plans but didn't participate. A report him were both arrested as accomplices at this point, law enforcement had in custody. Everyone that would ever be confirmed to have had a part in the Oklahoma City bombing. McVeigh's trial began on April twenty fourth nineteen ninety seven just over two years after the bombing, the task force that investigated. The bombing for the trial was the largest US criminal task force since the assassination of president Kennedy jed Richard Matsch believed that McVeigh would not have an impartial jury if he was tried in Oklahoma City. So he ordered the case to be tried in Denver, Colorado because it was a federal prosecution. The judge had the ability to try McVeigh anywhere. In the country for his trial McVay wanted his defense team to argue that the bombing was an act of self defense from an oppressive government. They didn't go with that defense regardless of what McVeigh believed to be true. There was no way that any lawyer was gonna prove that the government was actively out to kill McVeigh, which is what they would have had to do to win with that argument. McVeigh wouldn't deny that he had been the man behind the bombing, but he did continually express that his actions were that of a soldier, not a murderer. Clearly that argument didn't work in a rational courtroom after over twenty hours of deliberation, the jury reached its verdict on June second nineteen ninety seven Timothy. James McVeigh was found guilty on eleven counts, eight for murder and three for the use of and conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction. He was sentenced to death, although McVeigh. Killed when hundred and sixty eight people. He was only tried for eight murders. This was because his federal prosecution only charged him with the deaths of the eight federal agents who had died in the bombing. It would have been up to the state of Oklahoma to hold a second criminal trial for the one hundred sixty additional deaths given that McVeigh was found guilty of all counts and sentenced to death. The additional trial was deemed unnecessary alongside McVeigh. Terry Nichols was sentenced to one hundred and sixty one consecutive life sentences with no possibility of parole. Michael Fortier agreed to testify against Nichols and McVeigh in exchange for immunity for his wife. He was sentenced to twelve years, but was released ten years later and placed in the witness protection program. Is it odd and a man who is indirectly responsible for the deaths of one hundred sixty eight people receive government assist. Distance and starting a new life. Perhaps he feared retaliation from the victims families or from fringe extremist groups that supported McVeigh's worldview on June eleventh, two thousand one less than ten.

"Law enforcement was hunting for the man or men responsible. Our story will continue in a moment after the break. And now back to the story. Ambulances. People in stretchers. Fire. Trick crowds of people. Oh, God more people lying in the curb covered. This kits are being attended to. Ambulance workers. People covered flood that was an eyewitness account of downtown Oklahoma City. Shortly after the bombing on April nineteenth nineteen ninety-five bomber Timothy McVeigh was arrested the same day as the bombing. He was actually taken into custody less than two hours after the explosion for reasons, having nothing to do with the explosion. After the bomb went off. McVay successfully reached his getaway vehicle. He got onto interstate thirty five and headed north back towards Kansas. For whatever reason. He never stopped to put the license plate back on the car. He was pulled over by state trooper, Charles hanger. Just before he reached the Oklahoma, Kansas border hangar immediately noticed the bulge in McVeigh's jacket where McVeigh was keeping his gun. His permit for the weapon was not legal in the state of Oklahoma McVeigh was arrested for legal firearm possession. And sent to the county jail. It was the first time in his life Timothy McVeigh had ever been arrested at the same time. The FBI was already closing in on the man behind the bombing. The initial assumption had been that the explosion was the work of foreign terrorists. This hypothesis came from the nineteen ninety three attempted bombing of the World Trade Center, which was orchestrated by Ramsey Yousef a Kuwait born international terrorist. However, the foreign terrorist theory was quickly disregarded as the f. b. i. behavioral science unit gained insight into the psychology of the bomber agent. Clinton vans Zandt was the first one to note the significance of April nineteenth as the date of the bombing. The FBI knew within a matter of hours that there were likely looking for a white man in his twenties, he would possibly be part of a militia or another fringe group. And his motivation for the bombing would be related to the Waco siege..

"McVay also gave little insight into why Nichols left when he did it would seem that Nichols had crossed the point of no return a long time before he and McVeigh parted ways. One of the few statements McVay gave about Nichols was that he was full of talk, but at the end of the day, his family controlled his life McVay seems like kind of person to think that caring more about your family than killing hundreds of people was a bad thing, but not having Nichols around to help didn't deter McVeigh McVay saw himself as the one man who had the will to do what he thought was necessary. McVeigh's resolve never wavered or if it did, there's no record of it. He decided the date of the attack long advance. April nineteenth nineteen ninety five two years after the violent end, the Waco siege and two hundred and twenty years after the battles at Lexington and concord, which started the American revolution. McVeigh was left to carry out the final bloody part of the plan on his own. On the morning of April nineteenth nineteen ninety five McVeigh got dressed and his motel room outside Oklahoma City. He wore his favorite shirt which carried the words six Semper tarantulas. Thus ever to tyrants. These words were shouted by John Wilkes booth. Before he assassinated Lincoln McVeigh carried on his person a number of what he considered to be revolutionary materials pages from the Turner diaries. A fiction novel about white supremacists who blow up f. b. i. building and ignite a race war. He also had a bumper sticker with Thomas Jefferson's quote, when the government fears the people there is liberty when the people fear the government there is tyranny. McVeigh had added a note under this quote, maybe now there will be liberty. He left the Kansas motel early in the weaponize truck and entered Oklahoma City shortly before. Nine AM when pressed McVeigh has always expressed that the hundreds of deaths he caused were regrettable, but not the main point of his attack. However, if his plan was to just destroy a federal building, he could have detonated the bomb in the middle of the night when there were fewer people. Instead he approached the Myrrha building in the truck just before nine in the morning, just as hundreds of people were arriving at work or entering the building visit. One of the government offices, the original plan was to park the truck in the underground garage below the building where the blast would cause maximum damage to the buildings. Integrity. However, McVeigh had misjudged or simply forgotten to measure the height of the Ryder truck. It was too large to fit through the entrance to the garage. So instead he parked it in front of the building, it's hard to imagine with the national attitude toward acts of mass terrorism was prior to April nineteenth nineteen ninety five today an abandoned unmarked. Load-bearing. Van parked in front of federal building would be a red flag, but back then terrorism was something that happened in other countries. Law enforcement didn't consider threats of that scale possible on American soil at any given time. The Myrrha building had only one security guard on staff for a window of at least five hours a day. There was no security guard on the premises. All of this goes to illustrate how utterly unprepared everyone was for what happened shortly after nine AM on the morning of the nineteenth McVeigh's lit the fuse fifty, seven AM he had five minutes to get clear of the blast zone. He locked up the truck and. Quickly move toward where he had parked the getaway vehicle. It nine to a m, the bomb exploded. Everything went black. There was a loud deafening noise. I felt like I was being thrown or falling, and I hear people screaming. Concussion some kind of nerve quake, the whole ground shook, and then I've seen all kinds of spoke. It was chaos panic everywhere. People just running and screaming everywhere the initial explosion destroyed over a third of the building and most of the rest of the structure collapsed. Soon after investigation into the time line of the buildings collapsed would later find that had the building's load bearing columns been reinforced for earthquakes or similar seismic disturbances likely would not have collapsed. However, the government office in charge of contracting. The building's construction felt this was not necessary since Oklahoma does not experience earthquakes according to the investigation. Well, over a hundred people would have survived that day. If the building had been better reinforced every single building in the downtown Oklahoma City area experienced some kind of damage..

"The officer would not even go on the record with his name, and maybe there's a good reason for that. Any commanding officer who doesn't report a war crime committed by trooper under their command is subject to prosecution. If I was potentially on the hook for a war crime certainly wouldn't be talking to reporters about it or just as likely he didn't want to comment on blatant rumors with no proof McVeigh. Return to the states and was rescheduled to take special forces entrance exam. He wasn't ready months in the desert, had done the intense physical training. McVeigh put himself through. He was given the option to push exam further so he could retrain. But he waived that, right? He wanted to become a green beret as soon as possible two days into the grueling physical exam McVay tapped out. He wasn't cut out for it and he would not be given a second chance McVeigh's relationship with the army soured after that, although his evaluators paraded McVay as a model soldier with strong leadership potential McVay felt that it would take too long for him to excel in the army in the way that he wanted to. He was honorably discharged from the army in nineteen ninety one. He figured his next step would be to pursue a lifelong dream of opening a gun shop that plan never materialized McVeigh's. Life reverted back to how it was before he joined the army. He worked a series of odd jobs, mostly as a security guard. His efforts at romance often lead to rejection. He had few close friends or family, and he would talk extensively about his hatred of taxes in the government to anyone who would listen ironic, given that the very taxes, he hated where what funded the army, which would always be the best job McVay ever had. Extremist was similar psychological profiles to McVeigh, tend to separate the US army and the US government. The army was a band of brave pro America forces while the government was a corrupt institution that had it out for its own citizens. Nothing could convince McVay. Otherwise, around this time, McVay began writing letters to various newspapers, complaining about taxes as the instrument of an oppressive mismanaged government. It was the summer of nineteen ninety two when McVay I. Reconnected with his friend from basic training, Terry Nichols, he had been living with his father for the first year after leaving the army. But in nineteen ninety two, he moved to a farm in Michigan owned by Nichols brother. Reportedly the two men would act out live fire exercises and other paramilitary drills before he left the army Nichols at spoken of his dream to start his own paramilitary organization. He emphasized that he would one day have an unlimited supply of weapons. Naturally, this intrigued McVeigh while Timothy McVeigh was overseas fighting in the Gulf war. Terry Nichols was overseas for different reasons in nineteen ninety. He married Marie Torres a seventeen year old girl from the Philippines who he had met through a mail order bride, service Nichols traveled to the Philippines and number of times between nineteen ninety and nineteen ninety-five. Sometimes without. His wife. It's not clear why he went alone. And since the bombing, these trips look increasingly suspicious through the early nineties Nichols maintained his interest in gun rights and the survivalist movement, which is likely what led to his reconnection with McVeigh McVeigh was also still an avid follower of the survivalist movement. However, with the fall of the Soviet Union, the movement had shifted in its focus for the duration of the Cold War. The potential threat of a communist invasion had been a key incentive to become a survivalist when the Cold War ended. The movement needed a new threat to prepare for. They found it in the United States government in nineteen ninety two President. Bill Clinton was campaigning for stricter gun control. Laws McVay began to express his belief that the government plan to rob citizens of their right to protect themselves with firearms in preparation for a war between the tarantula government and. Its own citizens McVeigh joined the National Rifle Association in nineteen ninety two, but he cancelled his membership in nineteen ninety four because he felt that the group was too soft in its views on assault weapons..

"Aptitude tests shot perfectly in his marksman demonstrations, and generally stood out for his eagerness to be a good soldier. It was during his basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia, that McVeigh I met Terry Nichols like McVeigh Nichols was also college dropout. They reportedly had another thing in common. Neither of them liked working with black Americans. Nichols was thirteen years older than McVeigh and easily. The oldest person enrolled in basic training. It signed up to join the army in an attempt to escape what he described as a monotonous home life before joining Nichols at serve, mostly as a stay at home father to a son and two step. Children, it seems that Nichols may not have really gone over his decision to join the army with his wife. She filed for divorce shortly after he arrived at Fort Benning Nichols left the army soon after meeting McVeigh his impending divorce created a custody battle. He received a hardship discharge and returned home though. He was only in the army for short time. Nichols time in basic had led him to McVeigh. It was a friendship that would change both of their lives and the country back in the army. McVeigh's aptitude is a soldier. Led him to be one of the first soldiers in his company to make sergeant. However, he was far from a perfect example of the American soldier. Men who served with him said that McVeigh often made derogatory remarks about black Americans and that he would often assign the black American soldiers to the most undesirable work whenever he had the thirty to do so in his spare time, McVeigh obsessed over his growing collection of. Guns while other soldiers celebrated their off time McVay read survivalist magazines or cleaned his guns from his personal collection. It was against army regulations for McVeigh to possess a private gun collection in the barracks. But as we will see more and more on the story, McVay wasn't one to observe any rule which he saw as restrictive of his right to carry. He maintained a private armory of at least twenty rifles and assault weapons under his bunk. We know this because of a count for men who served in McVeigh's unit. What we don't know is whether or not the army command knew about McVeigh's guns or if they cared. With the end of the Cold War in nineteen eighty nine, the army was discharging rank and file soldiers as part of necessary cutbacks. McVeigh had no interest in leaving the army for the first time in his life. He had found something he truly excelled at. So he applied to join the army special forces since the green berets were not going to be affected by the downsizing by all accounts, McVeigh threw himself into training for the grueling physical exam. However, before he was given a chance to try out, he was deployed McVeigh's exam was scheduled for November of nineteen ninety Saddam Hussein's, invasion of Kuwait meant that he would have to wait as expected. McVay stood out as a soldier, though he was disappointed that he saw less action than he would have liked. He was awarded a number of medals, including bronze star and combat infantry badge despite appearing like a model soldier. There were rumblings of darker pattern of behavior from McVeigh's army days after the bombing reporters looked in McVeigh's war record. There were rumors, nothing confirmed that he had executed surrendered prisoners, that's a war crime. And though we don't know that for sure happened. It certainly fits his profile. Like we said, this action was never confirmed, and McVeigh was never court martialed for his alleged crimes. But after the bombing journalists sought out one of McVeigh's, commanding officers who refuse to speak about McVeigh's time in the army..

"Best way to do that is to leave a five star review wherever you listen to podcasts. The bombing in Oklahoma City. Wasn't attack on innocent children. Defenseless citizens. It was an act of cowardice. And it was evil. Today we're talking about the nineteen ninety-five bombing of the Alfred P Murrah building in downtown Oklahoma City. The bombing was orchestrated by at least two men Timothy McVeigh. And Terry Nichols McVeigh was the chief architect of the plot. He was the one who actually detonated the bombs Nichols assisted him. There's a lot to unpack about Nichols and McVeigh. Thanks to a years long FBI investigation into the bombings expansive media coverage of their capture and trials and their own public statements about why they did it. Still. There are lingering questions about how and why they killed one hundred sixty eight innocent men, women and children. This episode will be looking into the facts of the case. Next week. We'll talk about the conspiracy theories surrounding the bombing. There are three main conspiracy theories. About the Oklahoma City bombing. The first conspiracy theory is that at least one of these men was being funded and supported by foreign terrorists. Looking to attack America from within the second is that the US government knew that the bombing was going to happen and either allowed it to be carried out or worse, aided the terrorists in their plan as part of an operation aimed at shifting public attention away from government scandals, and the third is that McVeigh's actions were part of a broader plan by the area and brotherhood to kick off a race war, which they thought was inevitable. Before we discussed the bombing itself. We need to look at what we know about the two men who carried it out. What kind of person would carry out such a heinous act? What goal could they possibly be hoping to achieve for Timothy McVeigh? The bombing was an act of war against United States government today, McVeigh serves almost as a kind of prototype of the personality that appears again and again, in instances of domestic terrorism. He was a loner. He was obsessed with the idea that society and the government had wronged him and he had accessed tools and people who would eventually enable him to do something violent Timothy. James McVeigh was born April twenty third nineteen sixty eight. He grew up in Pendleton New York, the forest near his childhood home served as the site of McVeigh's initial fascination with guns. McVeigh was shooting BB guns in the deep woods as early as ten years old, his interest in firearms and shooting only in. Increased after his parents divorced McVeigh's grade school teachers noted that he was relatively uninteresting as a student. He had few friends, and though he was on the track team showed little interest in any kind of extracurricular activity was bullied in school. We don't know the extent of it, but McVeigh himself has stated that being bullied as a child had an impact on his adult life. He never stopped looking for a bully to stand up to. Perhaps the only know or the thing about McVeigh's teenage years was his expressed interest in survival, ISM survival. ISM is the practice of actively preparing for catastrophic civilization ending event Survivalists aim to be prepared to live off the land. And to that end, they gather perishable supplies in practice skills that they would need to survive. If the conveniences of modern civilization where to go away, it's a movement that still exists today in some of the more rural parts of the country. While some survivalist groups simply want to lead a simpler life away from the chaos of modern civilization programs like national geographic's doomsday prepar is often frame Survivalists as conspiracy theorists themselves. The survivalist movement gained popularity in America during the Cold War. It was kind of an extension to the atomic bomb duck and cover drills that were common at the time survive. A-List in this period often pointed to the red menace of the Soviet Union is the main reason. One needed to be prepared to survive in a post apocalyptic landscape at fourteen McVeigh was already stockpiling food supplies for a potential nuclear attack or communist invasion. He liked the idea of knowing that at any moment he could escape into the forest as a teenager. McVay seem to possess the world view that he had an obligation to defend America or at least his idea of America to that end, he dedicated himself to becoming proficient in shooting and camping..
