"I am your host battalion chief Rita Bigler with Phoenix department. Thank you for joining us today. We would like to take this opportunity to Bonneville broadcasting for allowing us this window to discuss what is happening in public safety sharing emergency response safety tips and discussing issues that pertain directly to the health of our community and the firefighters who serve those communities so today, I would like to welcome and introduce our guest we have sue through here today. Welcome. Thank you. Thank you for having me on your show. Absolutely. So sue is with vitality vitality is the new name of what used to be known as United blood services. Correct. That's right. Last september. We went through a name change. I because about nine different donor centers across the country joined are working station. So we've all come together under one new name if I it so people know, whether they give blood in Arizona or across the country that talent is the organization that likely serves their blood Nate. Aids. Perfect. So thought it was important to have this discussion today, I know we've had United blood services now known as talent on the show in the past and one of the things that was brought to my attention is there becomes a blood shortage in the summer months. Absolutely summer is one of our toughest times a year to maintain our states blood supply. And that's because we lose so many blood drives in the summer months. Many people would probably be surprised to know that teams are the largest donor group in in Arizona. In fact, it's that way in many many states across the country when all those schools go in their summer, recess as you can imagine that a we certainly feel that pinch without having the school blood drives to rely on like we do in the school year. And so this seems like a really relevant topic. When we talk about firefighters and just what firefighters do as first responders from responding to accidents and any kind of traumatic call that involves a loss of blood. We take people to the trauma rooms, and that is probably one of the first. If you wanna call it medicine first things that they would get there. So give our listeners a little bit of history as to how long you've been with the company, and what your history looks like well gosh just last month, I celebrated my thirty second anniversary with the organization in its hit certainly been a rewarding experience. And in fact, it was kind of interesting to note that the very first time back in nineteen eighty seven. When I when I got up in front of a group in talked about blood donation was at the Phoenix fire academy with one of the recruit classes, and we I'm pleased to tell you that we had a hundred percent participation from that recruit class giving blood. But it certainly got me over my my fear of public speaking. Having all those firefighters staring at me and barking at me, every time did have Practica took a breath. But it was a great group of people. In fact, they even invited me to their graduation party when it was all over that is awesome. So here's still doing what you do with. You're the public in media relations manager absolutely I started out as a rep organizing blood drives a across the valley. I did that for many years, and then I supervised the wraps in the year two thousand I stepped into the PR position. And it's really been such a great opportunity to talk about blood banking or all the different things associated with it. And and I'm so passionate about about donating blood in and making sure that patients have what they need to survive because I've had three immediate family members who've been relying on blood transfusion since I've worked with the organization, and so it hits very close to home for me as well. So let's talk about let's go back to basics when we talk about how much blood people can lose. What does you know? We talk about a coke. Can if you lose the amount that a of blood. That's an coke. Can that's a lot of blood? So what does the supply and demand? Look like for the summer months when we talk about there being a shortage. Well, first of all one. Out of every six donations is typically given by teen. So that that's the first thing that hits us hard in the summer months. But Secondly, there's so many long extended holiday weeks that you know, when you get to Memorial Day Labor Day fourth of July week during those weeks. It's very difficult for many organizations to host blood drives because they're short staffed, and they can't afford to let their employees donate blood. When you're trying to get five days worth of work in four sixty percent of our blood supply comes from blood drives. And so it's always a constant challenge to let people know that make it a point to give blood during the holiday weeks, and we have some really fun campaigns that we have to try to make it a little more fun and exciting for people to give blood this time of year. So let's let's just jump into those those events that are coming up. If you would like absolutely will first of all, our we're very excited about our partnership with.

"This is Chris joined in studio with nobody. And Mark and nobody formerly the artist formerly formerly known as Rich Paul there, you go. Bug with political and Certes. Formerly known exactly with aspirins of political change rich has decided to change his name to nobody with the hopes that nobody will be voted for and view of the choice would you vote for your current politicians? Or would you vote for nobody? I think it's a good idea. I'm game. Nobody hopes nothing happened. This is just confusing. So is isn't it? I think I might quite mad by the time. I'm done with the shirt. Very bad is Ben Shapiro? Ben Shapiro has been facing some threats Mark you have more on that story. I mean, those don't who don't know Ben Shapiro is. He's become pretty wildly popular in the last couple years conservative commentator, young guy, and apparently somebody was threatening him. So the story here from Fox News. I mean. Yeah. Well, a man was arrested in Washington state on Wednesday after reportedly making death threats against conservative talk show, host bench Pero. Shapiro told Fox News he couldn't comment on pending legal proceedings, but confirm the situation as reported by TMZ on Twitter thanking law enforcement for their quick and hard work here. The suspect reportedly threatened both Shapiro and his family sources told the outlet the threats were extremely serious Spiro who currently serves as editor in chief of the daily wire and hosted an election show on Fox News last year filed a report with Los Angeles Police Department related to the threats according to TMZ. So the suspect was arrested in Washington state. The filed a report with Los Angeles Police Department, I don't know where this Sapiro guy lives. But my presumption is that he filed it with the organization in the town. He lifts one would think so I I don't know. Maybe he lives in Chicago and filed it with the police department for over at all. But either they didn't pick him up and L LA the perpetrator. So. I guess there's a little tour here about the hat that Shapiro was wearing in the picture. And that's really about it. It was a joint task force with the FBI and the agency along with the FBI reported creating joint task force to search for the suspect, and that's it. So I wanna know why does law enforcement spring into action and bring down this guy who I would imagine threatens Shapiro relatively recently compared to the guy who's been threatening me and my family for five years. That's a good point. And they. I mean, you know, the I was told by the police department when I reported locally that I needed to call the folks in Phoenix as though I need to know where the person who is threatening me is. So then I called the Phoenix department. They told me they would have to investigate right? It'd be too much police work. That's I suspect as the reason. And so I called the Phoenix police department. They told me sorry. We can't do anything you have to go to your local police department. So I dropped it for a little while that I called a lawyer in Phoenix to get a restraining order on the onset person. Right. Just so that if they contact me, no contact order, if they contacted me again, I'd be able to say, look he broke this law too. Right. As family isn't enough. I wonder what the keen police thought the air Zona police were going to do. All. Yeah. We'll send a couple of guys right over to take notes. Shrug their shoulders. I mean. It's it's obviously if he's in less, you're going era Zona the police knowing that this guy is is threatening. You really isn't useful. Because the concern is that he would actually come here and do it. So it really was the Kean Kean believe I don't know who supposed to do it. And it's not Jon call the police, right? But the question of why does why do police jump into action when it's Ben Shapiro and not when it's Mark edge. And a what heroes got a lot of money. And that means they're getting a lot of phone calls. Well, what what's going to happen is they are going to get lots of press and and police are motivated by things like the opportunity for good press. Right. That is a motivating factor there also motivated by personal relationships. I'm known as somebody who critiques law enforcement here on free talk live true. And I'm also known as a Free State or locally and thanks to my co host. Ian that is a bit of a pejorative in town. And you know, I imagine these guys. Really think I mean, certainly there's there for some it is. But there was a time when police law enforcement in New Hampshire is taking bets on how many free staters they can arrest who get the most of that doesn't that doesn't surprise me. It didn't it. Well, it didn't do the most good really the keen police were. I mean, they've always been in my experience the most decent. They may be the most decent. I don't know. I haven't had a lot of experience with police outside of keen. But the experience that I've had in New Hampshire with police has largely been teen. And I've had them stopped me while recording a police encounter. I've had them. You know, I've had them basically dropped the ball on a case where they were investigating vandalism. My car that was done here in the studio. You know, they they. I can tell you. Stuff going on or or it happens to you. We should form a coupla squad. I don't wanna go bother these people. And I suspect you they're getting what they want right. And I just want them to do their job. They get paid very very well pick up. I mean, this this sergeant you loss I called in twenty fifteen and I can give you the date and the time I actually posted on my Facebook page. This sergeant you last wouldn't take the time to look at the Facebook page where I record for the last five years this mouth, breathing Dullard and his is threats on my family here. I'm quoting from March twentieth. This has quotation marks around it. I'm gonna hurt your family. Is what he says to me. It's right there on free talk live. I've got the date listed. I'm gonna hurt. You vincent. He's talking about a co host here. He says, I can't wait. Yes. Vincent. He hates everybody. Hating Vincent's leg hating puppy. You're talking about you're talking about. You're applying rationality irrational situation. I couldn't tell you know, that prevents us from hating puppies. The irrational that makes us love them. I am only tangentially related like I've I've been a co host here we've taken some calls from this individual, and I have faced page upon page of tirades from this guy. There's no rationality here. And I do think he is dangerous. Now, the reason why various that he just doesn't mess with me. I'm going to repeat this one more time. It's because you're not Ben Shapiro. And it's because these guys want things they can brag about I'm talking about the police. They want to go home at the end of the day and say, Honey. I had to work. The Ben Shapiro case. I'm gonna brag to my buddies. When I go bowling, we're working on the bench apparel case. Nobody's going to brag about the Mark edge. They aren't I would I wouldn't occur with you. And I think that that's just goes to show that you know, some animals are more equal than others this little farm, and I would argue that that should be the case to some extent. I mean, when you think about it consider an end cap protection agency, if you pay them more for your policy than they're going to devote more energy to getting you back because they want you to keep paying this. But this particular protection agency won't let me protect myself, this particular organization will enforce the felon in possession of firearms statutes that exist in tell me, I can't own a gun. But at the same time, they won't log onto a computer and look at a page. I asked him to look at. Yeah. All they are collectors of protection money. There's police right now that are listening to the show. We know they call all the time that aren't going to do anything about this case. Well, I got to say to you guys. There's a there's gonna come a time when there's a revolution in this country officers, and guess what it's none of your business lawn. There's a right to revolution. Which means that if and when there is a revolution. It's law enforcement Studi to stand down and let the military handle it. If anybody has any questions about this. Please look go to Facebook look up things.

So absolutely move your twenty years ago to the valley, I've been with the Arizona burn foundation for five years. Now, I came to the organization five years ago because of the passion I had for doing the work that they do the mission is to support burn survivors and their families as they move from that place of traumatic burn injury to a place of recovery to thriving once again, and then because of all the community outreach programs that they have installing free smoke alarms in communities and doing burnt revenge, and advocacy and education in the state of Zona. My background was I have a older brother that passed away in a house fire back when I was a young adult and as a result of that my family back in Ohio used to always give away free smoke alarms to anyone who didn't have them in. So I carried. On as I moved over here to Phoenix twenty years ago. And when this position at Iryna burnt foundation, my heart just leapt said, this is what I need to do for the rest of my days since so here, I am Homaizi is that it wouldn't amazing story. Thanks for sharing that. And boy when you find something, you know, you're in the right place doing the right thing that has to be a great feeling, absolutely. Was recently added event over Christmas time, Arizona burned foundation had this amazing event where they have these. I can't even put it into words these Christmas trees were they look like they were just works of art with just hundreds of hours put into the to the decorating of them something that you would rather see in a museum than in a home. But they have this amazing gala and is to raise money for the burn foundation. And the money is what they need because this foundation does I mean just amazing work for folks that have suffered a tragic event talk a little bit about some of the philanthropy. What what the people that want to help and want to give what does your foundation really focus on as far as you touched a little bit on it. But a little bit expand a little bit more of what you do. Sure. Absolutely. So when someone is admitted into the Arizona burn center for those of you don't realize this. We have this jam right here in Phoenix Arizona at the America integrated health system, the county hospital the Irizawa burn center. It is the second leading burn center in the nation's second busiest, I should say it's actually the leading burns center for burn wound care in the nation. And we have that right here in Phoenix. And so when someone's admitted to the burn center, we come alongside that family to begin to provide them support that might be financial assistance. It might be lodging might be meal. Vouchers were there to provide emotional support. We have a social worker that were with us fulltime. She's there at the hospital three days a week to offer that kind of support to the families once. Someone is dismissed from the burn center. They the care. They're going to need continues on because a burn injury lasts a lifetime. So there's gonna be follow-up burn clinic visits follow up surgeries. So we come alongside that family to help with those things. So we might provide therapy services. We might provide pressure garments. We might provide a prosthetic if that's necessary. We also have a peer support group that meets twice a month. For adults. And then we have a peer support group that's monthly for teens young adults as well. Then we also have camps and retreats we have a family camp for preschool, burn survivors, and their families a young adult retreat and an adult retreat, and then we have our signature kept courage, which has been around for twenty eight years for children ages six to fifteen up in Prescott Arizona every summer. I was very fortunate enough when I was a firefighter recruit in two thousand and one every firefighter recruit class has to. Do a philanthropic thing to show your legacy while you were what we call red shirts in the training academy. And we were very fortunate enough that someone in my kademi had participated up in Prescott in the burn camp. And so she had rallied all of us to participate up there. We went up there as a group in vans, and I really didn't know what to expect. And I was blown away by how important this is for the healing of these children. Absolutely. They are surrounded by folks who have gone through the same journey that they have. So they get to just be themselves. Right. They get to just have fun in camps where they are with their with other folks that bear the scars that they have of this traumatic incident and the smiles on their faces, right? There was enough for me to know. This is an amazing foundation that has to be a point of pride for your organization on what you do. Absolutely. Yes. I'm it's it's the signature event for sure for the year. And it does bring. Great joy to our hearts to know that we're helping these young burn survivors overcome that traumatic injury that they've had. I tell you for me personally when I get to see a child take off their shirt to go swimming in the pool no longer afraid of their scars or embarrassed by their scars knowing hey, I'm surrounded by others that are scarred. Just like me panic brings great joy to your heart for sure it does. And I'm looking at your organization, and you touched on it. It's such a traumatic event. It could be for the for a family often times they talk about if it was an accidental fire. There's guilt in the family. They have to deal with the financial hardship. They have to deal with. How do we move forward with our child? Tell him there's still they're still the same amazing child. They just have some scars on them. So your organization provides that backbone for them to say, we've got this don't worry about this. We're gonna take care of this. We're going to help you along with this journey, and to me, I just think it's a very important part of our valley here, the very important part of Arizona that this organization. Exists. And we definitely thank you for all the hard work that you do. But it doesn't come easy. We have to make sure we support organizations like this that day thrived at that. We can always count on those organizations. So we talked about the Christmas tree event, which gets a lot of attention. But there's another event coming up soon that we hope is just another smashing success. And again involves top golf which I love to do. I think everybody listening to go ahead and tell us what the next event is. That's coming up. Yeah. Absolutely. So we're going to be I'm having the inaugural. Arizona burn foundation golf classic. And it will be held at top golf Scottsdale on April eleventh, and the event is going to be teams of six who are going to be a bay doing a tournament style golf event. A lot of fun. You don't have to be a golfer to do it. All you have to do is know how to swing a club and hit a little white ball. You don't even have to be that good at hitting the white ball because it's all by chance. Whether it ends up in the target or not into all the scoring will be done by teams. At that event. We we're also going to be honoring a firefighter of the year and a fire department public educator of the year. We believe it's really important to honor those who we partner with all year long, which is all of the fire departments across the state of Arizona. And so we are going to bring them in. We're gonna have nominations from the fire departments for those winners. And we're going to be giving that award out that day that night. So our goal is to have people sponsor obey. And then they will be able to fill it with fire department personnel. And we'll have a tournament. They're full of we hope two hundred and four firefighters fighting it out as he was going to be the top golfer the night. Well, that's fantastic. I for sure no that I will this is on this event that I will not want to miss. I think you guys do an outstanding job when you put on these events and what a fun event too absolutely top golfing. You're right. I'm a terrible golfer. But I still go out there. But when you go to top golf, it's boy it's just about hitting a ball off that platform you hit it into that target. And it's a lot of fun, and they change it. So what a great event. When we think about these events, and we think about the necessary fundraising. It's it's nice to put a picture of the type of person, this will be helping and recently here in the valley. Last Saint Patrick's Day we had a fire at a home where a young girl was burned Isabella, and it was very extensive burns on her body covering most of her tour solar arms and her legs. The amazing work of the county. Burn center. The Phoenix department did respond quickly rendering aid to her rushing her down to Maricopa integrated medical systems county hospital and some of the nation not only known in the nation, but some of the world's leading doctors and burn care took care of her. But it was a long journey her. She was on the news of of you recognize that name of Isabela. And the burnt foundation was with that family with her and her family from the minute. She arrived there throughout all that process, and helping her family talk a little bit about that sort of a success story of taking something so tragic, and what your organization does. And why we need to support this organization in our community talk a little bit about I know, you were close to that thing. And I was fortunate enough to meet her a girl beyond her age. She's very well put together a speak to her is sort of like the signature of what you would be doing helping out this organization. Absolutely Isabella really is. She's a prime example of what it is. We do. So when Isabela arrived at the Zona burn center. It was that day. In fact, within hours one of our burn one of our board. Members is connected with the family and found out about the accident. And so she contacted us, and we had our social worker there. Immediately to begin immediately being able to offer some emotional support to the family to mom and dad Lillian J D as time went on. It did affect the family financially mom and dad needed to be by as a Bellas bedside on because of the extensive surgeries are being done. And the extensive burned injury that had taken place and so dad's business ended up whether you just ended up meeting financial help. So we came alongside to help with mortgage payments and utility payments to make sure that that family could continue to focus on isabela's healing. Once they were dismissed and now they are after nine months in the Zona burn center. Isabella finally.

"Would you like to get a chief? But I said chief waves it through I. Because everyone thinks for related mayor so good morning to everyone and thank you to mayor Williams as well. As to those people who are standing with me next to me. I stand here today to announce to the community that the hard work and dedication demonstrated. By the members of this Phoenix police department has resulted in the arrest of the person, whom we believe committed this unspeakable act when he sexually assaulted one of our most vulnerable members of our community, as you know, this matter came to our attention at the Kennedy Space department on Sunday, Saturday, December twenty ninth when we received a nine one one call of a baby in distress must've. You have listened to that nine one one tape. We responded to the scene and began the process of doing what I continually say that the men and women of this department do each and every day that we're sworn to protect from the minute. We I became aware of this crime a sexual assault. We have worked virtually non-stop every day every night seven days a week trying to solve and resolve this case the investigation was and still is the highest priority for our department through a combination of good old. Fashioned police work combing through evidence talking to people following up on information combined with the marvels of DNA technology. We're able to identify and develop probable cause to arrest the suspect and at this time, I am announcing the arrest of the suspect we believe who is responsible. He is thirty six year old Nathan Sutherland Sutherland is a licensed practical nurse who was responsible for providing care to the victim during this time, the sexual assault occurred Sutherland is being booked as we speak into the mirror COPA county jail where he'll be charged with one count of sexual assault and one count of vinyl vulnerable adult abuse in connection with this crime. I wanna purposely purposely recognize and thank the men and women of the Finnish. Please crime lab the family investigations bureau as well as a fugitive apprehension investigating screech street crimes detail without your tireless work and effort. This would not be possible. And I wouldn't be standing here today. This again is a testament to the drive and compassion that the employees of the Phoenix department have for our community we owed this arrest to the veteran we owed this the rest of the newest member of our community that innocent baby. So with that if I can entertain a few questions, and then I'll turn it over to second. Tommy thompson..

"The guys will be back on Monday. Put your fun on they will be raring to go. They'll have a couple of weeks just full of energy to let out on the radio. You better be fully caffeinated at large and in charge. Come Monday morning because I have carried the ball with you for the last two weeks now. Yeah, we've done a good job. You mentioned the other day that I've known you for almost a decade. I know you had a lazy eye what's going on with your eye over there. Stop it. Stop teasing. Not a lazy. I what is it? I'm trying to still get used to contacts, and I've gone through. Multi focal and the two different ones the mono vision finally have given up and I just put one in one. I and I'm checking that maybe you should just get some of those. I hear they're real cool in happening bifocals, those are you mean the glasses glasses with like what you wear. No, no, those these are just glasses. Bifocals don't even you can't turn the old person joke on me. I'm already making it about you. You can't do it though. I am not old darn it. Trifocals? Think about do. They make the. Oh, yeah. Really? Oh, yeah. I'm never getting trifocals. Maybe MAC and Gaydos, come back with a pair. You never know what that's true. That's true. One of the big things that we talked about in twenty eighteen in Phoenix officer involved shootings. We broke records here in Arizona. Eighty one shootings in Maricopa County forty five of them in Phoenix almost half of them involved, a fatality. Well, how the heck does that number mesh? With the fact that Phoenix followed a national trend with both falling murder and crime rates and not just falling. The city of Phoenix saw almost twenty percents you're murders and a little over five percent less crime compared to twenty seventeen so murdering crime not just a little down that's substantially down. Well, it sounds like officer involved shootings doesn't have to end in a murder, for example. Correct. But half of them didn't involve a fatality. Right. Right. So maybe you know, we're looking at apples and oranges here. But when you first read these headlines, it doesn't make sense. So I understand that perhaps it is, you know, the community has more firearms out there. Maybe it's the police officers are quicker to use their weapon than they were before. Even though our crime rates are falling. And maybe is it overall crime rates, or is it specific crime rates? I mean, there's so there's there's a lot of holes here that we don't have the answers to it's a positive report to me though. And the Phoenix police department has certainly had the microscope on them and they've been under the hot seat for at least since July or so of two thousand eighteen when the number ticked past the record that it had hit and in the past and every shooting on top of that became a big deal. But you look at these numbers. It's good that almost twenty percent down and murders a little over five percent. Went down when it comes to crime. The report found the nation's thirty biggest cities had the lowest crime rates in thirty years. So when I was up at any you go Jackson, I I had a lot of criminology classes, and we studied your crime rates and win crime goes up, and when it comes down and one of the things we talked about is when people are very stressed out about money in the country's not doing well or communities, not doing. Well, then you see more crimes happening because people are angry others feeling titles. Desperate, desperate. That's the last one desperate because people have to feed their families. And then if you throw in issues such as the opioid epidemic and people wanting to get the drugs, then that causes a whole melting pot full of problems a perfect storm. So with our improving economic conditions in the country, as we're climbing out of our recession in makes sense that the crime rates would be falling because there are like we just mentioned in. Scottsdale, there are jobs available and there's opportunities available. And that's what the group who put. This report together said improving economic conditions were a large part of the reason and more cops on the streets were another big factor, which is funny because if you hear people out there talk. They say at least a big thing that I hear is that there's not enough officers that there is. You know, that they are working longer shifts or behind on where they would like to be you hear this from the police that, hey, we don't have as many officers as we feel we need. And maybe we don't have as many as we need always been the case, though, haven't we always heard police officers in the community saying there just aren't enough officers. When have you ever heard a community are person say, oh, there's plenty of police officers out there. You'd have to go back before the recession. Once the recession rolled around. It was first responders or one of the areas that certainly took a hit first responders and schools were really the two big areas like the school resource officers. No, no, no. I would just say schools period sources devoted to schools. Okay. Took a hit before wants the recession happened those areas. Budgets got cut because cuts had to be made. And we knew the economy wasn't going to be what it was. But according to this report put together at New York university's Brennan center for Justice. They say there are more police out there on the street here in Phoenix. And the economy out there conditions are improving. We hope certainly hope that that's the case as we continue into two thousand nineteen. So we know that the crime rates are falling. According to the statistics, we know that the murders are falling here in Phoenix. But we know that officer involved shootings are going up. In other words, we broke the wreck. So what does this tell the Phoenix department? I think that it probably tells them that maybe they need to step up the training change their training have some more programs. Maybe you know, some more bring in outsiders from other parts of the country that can maybe lend some techniques that can be used not to bag on the police department. But there's something going on. Well, there's a report that was supposed to come out in January. Now, we're hearing February or later in the year in terms of these officer involved shootings, and hopefully it will have some findings tied to it. I think it's going to be very murky and very difficult to say, and it's entirely possible that it was a one year aberration that the number will fall in two thousand nineteen won't hit. What it did? Well, let's hope so certainly, and I think training is always a good idea. But you're also going to hear officers say, hey, we need more officers out there in the street were street where? Over-worked where underpaid the truth, though, it's going to be very hard to get to. And everybody's going to have different opinions. You're going to have the groups out there that oppose the police and want fewer of them and feel like they're overstepping their bounds walking on the constitutional Lanny's. They're going to point to one thing that spins the number their way, and the police are going to look at the number of the other way. And it's up to you to really sit and decide this is what I think the truth is Phoenix police chief, Jerry Williams. She says that her department has not pinpointed any one factor to cause the uptick in shootings as we're talking about the different factors and how people are going to try to find them. And she maintains the department has not let its guard down in two thousand eighteen and I believe that I don't think that the police officers had let their guard down. I just think that there's obviously something out there that has caused them to use their firearms more than perhaps in the past. Or, you know, actually, fire them more than in the past there something, and if the police department doesn't even know what it is. How are we going to figure it out? There's one more thing you need to keep an eye on out there today. There is a deadline today Friday for responding to Jodi Arias appeal of her murder conviction in the two thousand eight death of her former boyfriend Travis Alexander what happens if the prosecutor's office does not respond today. Well, they I just got this off the printer. The prosecutors have not responded yet. They haven't filed their response to her appellate brief, but they did ask the court for an extension. Okay. So they asked the court to give them two more weeks to file the response brief in this is in the court of appeals. And it's it's very likely that the court of appeals will grant that especially if they've already talked to areas attorneys, and they agree to the extension of Perry. That's Herod air. Areas filed her appeal back in July, right? I don't remember the exact date. She filed it. I'm just sitting here that lawyers for areas filed their July. Yes, is it common for attorneys to ask for two more weeks? I mean, this has been going on like six months now, they they can't file an appeal when they've had six months, and they know this deadline's approaching well, it's interesting because the court of appeals and different courts have different rules about when someone can file responsive brief sometimes the courts will say the rules will say don't file anything yet until we tell you we want it. Sometimes there's other technical hangups that have to get ironed out such as a transcript or something like that. So this is typical. It's not surprising. I expect the court will go ahead, and rubber stamp it give him two more weeks. And they'll have it ready in two weeks. And do you think she'll get an appeal or not do I think that her appeal will win? Yeah. Well, she's got a lot of bases for the appeal. If she wins her appeal. What does that mean for her? Well, it could mean a lot of things if the court finds that the prosecutor's office was. Very very bad like malicious intended to cause harm broke rule after rule after rule. She would get another trial. They might just dismissed the entire case thinking dubber milky. Remember that case that's what happened her entire case got kicked out and dismissed because of the conduct of the prosecutor's office. Now that happened. That crime in that prosecution happened twenty plus years ago. I don't think we'll see that here. But that would be the ultimate thing that areas would want, but they could just turn around and reverse it and send it back for another trial. How likely do you think that is? I don't think it's very likely. I don't think it's very likely at all. But you know, she does have some arguments. United United Airlines. They're the latest airline to say wolf wolf to emotional support animals. I'll explain what we've wolf means next..
