"These are private nude videos, but they're being shared amongst us Julia Police Department and that's you know where we're at in the lawsuit right now, where her lawyer holding events out of Chicago is trying to is in the process. Deposing these witnesses to find out who had who watched the videos. You know what they talked among themselves who make copies of them, you know, and so on and so forth Job. Well, you know if they disseminated the videos, that's you know, that's you are you are, you know you're trafficking and pornography. I mean, that's that there's some serious charges. Here is the we're talking with the John Ferric. He's an editor and reporter for Pat's Julian about this ongoing Federal jury trial lawsuit where, and she's still a police officer with Julian as her as her husband is now husband, and it must be a make for very uncomfortable times. At the police department. Obviously, as this goes forward, how money and I saw your article. It looks like you know 15 to 20 officers, former and current officers are going to be deposed is that accurate? Yes, sir. This John did when she originally filed the lawsuit coming up in three years ago on the Saugus stuff I memory serves. It was one sergeant that was named as a co defendant. Sergeant had gristle and he was the one that ultimately obtained a search warrant to get her phone. But she had also named generally speaking. I think 1 to 20 quote John Doe's, which basically meant this sheet of her lawyer with the belief that there may have been as many as 20 police officers that either knew or had access to these to these videos, and that's where we're at right now. Then Jamus stars. You know her lawyer or trying to figure out you know, um you just the extent of the involvement of other Julia police officers. Viewing it do we know doing off John? Do we know if anybody posted any of this, In other words, you know, disseminated to the extent of posted on the Internet, or is that not part of this? The fact that they just may have viewed it at the You know, in the evidence locker. What have you Yeah, that there's no evidence or or knowledge star is anybody. It's police from it, you know, posting or making copies as far as taking outside the department. Now I do believe that these depositions job are going to get into the Possibility, or, you know, or belief of the plaintiffs that there may have been, you know, multiple copies, copies made of the of the information, the photos and videos that were downloaded from her original phone, so that will be determined probably over the next Month, six weeks with when some of the former retired Julia police administrators have to go in and give their depositions in front of the lawyers. John John and I catch in your Your piece of the then chief is now gone. Correct. Actually, There's been some musical chairs with Julie at the last few years. So actually the chief that was, you know the individual that was the chief at the time. The next trip. Nick Crowley was arrested and went to trial, and he's not listed right now is first undergoing a deposition for Bryant pencil with chief at the time, but L Roach. There has been the he was chief the last 2 2.5 years, and he just retired this test January, and he's supposed to be giving his deposition here in the next Few weeks as I reported in my article in the Julia Patch a couple days ago. Well, the lessons to be learned in my opinion number one. Don't put anything like that on your phone ever. Even if you think it's private things happen in number two, Even if you're at a work, environment, any work, environment, any environment, and somebody says, Hey, take a look at this. Don't look, don't be. Don't get your visual or literal fingerprints on any of that nonsense because it will not work out well for you. In this environment, and nor should it have been in previous environments. But you get cast here pretty quick for even doing that in the workplace environment, let alone a police station. So, John Ferric I thought it was a fascinating piece will stand top it. I wonder how this will all be resolved. And I'm sure we're gonna have you back to talk about it. Thank you very much. Thanks, John for having me out. Take care. Have a good evening. Coming up next time. Remember Steve Dolinsky and ABC seven for so many years. The hungry hound. He has a new venture.

It was reprieved as an SNL skit this weekend for one particular reason, and it's kind of a minor player. But if you were watching on TV, or you went to any of those games at the UC, you remember Jordan's body guard. Well, he's passed away. In fact, he passed away over a year ago just before the last stance aired on ESPN. But the legacy of this gentleman was put on display, not a nasty where malicious way. Don't think don't think his family thinks so. But we're going to talk to a writer who writes on the media and sports and will bring us up to date on that very interesting story regarding Michael Jordan and the last Dance, won the slam.

So, chas Revenge porn lawsuit against her employer. It sounds like she still is a Julia cop. Let's welcome John Ferenc. He's an editor and reporter at the Patch Joliet. Back to double the else. John. This is a complicated story. I know that the lawsuit's been underway since August of 2018, but the incident that prompted the lawsuit is back. Into May of 2018 Give us kind of the genesis of this entire story, please. Sure, John. We had a trial that was going on that same well this week three years ago involved the allegations of gun being discharged inside the house. Between the townhouse between the two police officers. They live together at the time. And our since married, Um, the one officer. The male officer was church with several several crimes and his future wife officer soldier testified at the trial. John Um on his behalf and stressed to the judge at the trial that she did that she was not a victim of domestic violence and you know, didn't feel harm to threaten. There was a lot well argument her dog started barking and and her future husband fired the gun. Into the ceiling that night. So that's kind of the precipitation off the incident that eventually it's gonna lead to this federal lawsuit involving this morning and her now husband They were. I guess they were residing together back in May of 2018 when the gun went off. Julia Police officer Nick Crowley. He's still a member of the force as well, correct. Correct. Both of them are officers to this day and our regular patrol officers, Jack. So when that trial was going on, did the state's attorney For evidence did. How was her cell phone? How did her cell phone come into play? It, um, she had sent, you know again. This is a private phone. Um, and she had sent a message. To another witness for the prosecution of woman that she knew. And it was an angry mean spirited message. But there was nothing criminal. There's nothing threatening you. No, nothing like that. No, that she was gonna kill somebody or anything like that. So she sent the message to the to a witness for the prosecution that she knew. And then that woman that witness John then to the other Julia police supervisors who were trying to make sure that Nick Crowley After Crowley was convicted, and the trial did not go their way. He was found that guilty and the allegations in her lawsuit are that the police said went and we judge judge shopping and found one of the World County judges to authorize. A search warrant for officer searches. Private cell phone. Okay, just to be clear. As you mentioned the police office from the incident in May of 18 Nick Crowley's still a cop. He was he was found not guilty of all the criminal charges, including reckless discharge of a gun. But then our cell phone is in the custody of the police. And then what is she alleged happen? Well, First of all, I feel I just said that that that that this was an illegal first one to begin with that there was no evidence of any criminal activity on her phone. John. Um the police already had Julia, please already have the message that she had sent, you know, fun. The other recipients they already had. Quote, if you I mean, I mean, we'll call it evidence for discussion here. But it really wasn't evidence inspires who was no crime that officer so she committed by signing this, you know, you know, mean message, but, um, you know to the to this lady. The Julia police. Like I said, they got a judge to sign off and were able to obtain Officer soldiers. Private cell phone. And again if their whole purpose for retrieving the phone was just to retrieve the set This message she sent to the witness. They started going through her phone and started looking at any and all of our photos and videos. I am Joe. That's what's eventually going to lead to the federal lawsuit, Jack. So here we are, some three years later coming up on three years later, well three years ago this month is when the incident happened. Lawsuit was filed in August. Harmony. How are the photos and videos disseminated? And can you describe reasonably what those are? Um, the the photos and videos.

As far as who know who watch You know, and and when and what they did with it, But apparently there were there may have been multiple copies of the videos again, It would have been consensual adult Turner future husband.

Is something different post traumatic stress. Disorder comes from the direct exposure to or the secondary handling of empathetic connection interviews or dealing with involving overwhelming violence or cruelty or death or chronic threat and it has to do with the brain and body staying in a kind of a permanent alarm state In which we there are characteristic psychological changes traumatic memories that come back at us when we don't want in that are interfering A sense of anxiety arousal being unable to concentrate get to sleep or the other direction. People who become numb and avoidance or whose worldview becomes very dark those are profound psychological changes that begin with our biological response to fear and threat. And what we know from research into journalists is that our profession is exposed through too far more trauma than the general public and even more than some other frontline professions. We obviously reporters who are covering war exposed to a lot of trump but so are reporters who cover Violent street demonstrations or confrontations with the police so our reporters who cover crime and fires but so are journalists. Who never leave the desk. Who are dealing with a steady of graphic imagery and we can't look away because it's our job. Think of you any of the horrible police violence videos over the course of the last week. They're tough for all citizens to look at Particularly people of color particularly people who identify with the victims in those videos but for journalists and editors mp reducers. What the public doesn't see is that we have to view those decide which ones to use verify them. Edit them run them past other editors and producers constantly re edit them. There's a whole process which means that a lot of people who never leave. The desk are dealing with a steady diet of graphic imagery a steady diet of distressing information. Which eventually can overtop. You're sort of personal. Damn your personal levy. Just as much as front-line trauma exposure We know that that these mechanisms mechanisms how the brain responds are very close to what we use. As journalists every day in our work rely on being able to be present in the moment not overwhelmed by last year's police shooting video owner trying to do today story about we rely on being able to focus to put together complex information to get along with colleagues to make empathetic connection with sources with audiences with colleagues.

According to a recent from the job site indeed more than fifty two percent of respondents reported experiencing burnout in twenty twenty one for journalists like me that burn out has been due in part from our inability to step away from the news between covid nineteen. The election protests against police brutality and more journalists have been caught up in an endless cycle of traumatic news for at least more than a year. And that's been forcing some journalists to step down and take a break recently.

Glad to be your tenzin of navel-gazing And i know that people have many different feelings about the media. I will say though. That burnout is something that i think. A lot of people whether they work in media or not are experiencing but these very high profile you know departures. I think are signaling. Something that we as journalists need to look at so let's start with why so many journalists are feeling burnt out this this is. This is really important. I've tenzin over the last who i've been spending a lot of time in newsrooms via zoom talking journals about the impact of of this period and a few things are apparent on the one hand people who report the news who produce the news who are in front of the camera and behind the desk have the same very challenging.

We are having to manage boundaries like everybody else. We are fearful for our relatives and people we love. All of that is a kind of open ended stress in and of itself. But in addition i think what the public doesn't see is that there have been a couple of other sources of extraordinary open ended unremitting stress for the people who carry us the news every day One of them is that With the arrival of covid. nineteen and social distancing. I'm working at home. Journalists had to completely reinvent the delivery of news this part you don't seek the paper still arrives on your desk. The bulletin still arrives in your inbox.

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

"Br there's also a separate civil rights investigation into the chauvin case. Is that right. And what do we know about that. So far yes As attorney general garland mentioned yesterday This is separate from the federal criminal. Investigation I don't know much more about that. We've we've heard about some of the That there'd been a grand jury impaneled a that investigation but other than that. I don't have any more information michelle. Let's talk a little bit about the federal government's role here because if the federal government identifies that something needs to be fixed or changed who will then do. The of those changes will be up to the department to take that those findings and do with them as they please or will there be some sort of mandate that comes from the federal government. How does that work. So typically When there is caused issue a report when the investigation finds that there was a pattern and practice of discrimination or excessive force. Typically what happens after that. Is that the department releases. A report and then the jurisdiction under doj work together to negotiate an agreement That agreement is often legally binding and can be enforced with a A team or an individual who monitors that consent decree and ensures that the department is meeting the conditions that they promised to And that can lead to a litigation if the department does not do the kinds of reforms that it had promised to implement. How effective is this strategy. The using the muscle of the federal government to reform police departments. You know so. There's only a couple of studies on the issue and it still a little bit of a murky territory. I mean i think the big picture is that the the scale of the operation is just so small that you're only ever going to be able to touch you know at max of twenty five cities or jurisdictions at a time so there's just a scale problem but in terms of for the cities that do enter into a consent decree what changes part of the problem in the complexity of that research is that it's a little ambiguous what the outcome goal is. So if you look at for instance. Civil cases filed against the department. That's one outcome. People have also looked at what happens to crime rates in a city. People have also looked at you. Can't apartment sustain the effort. So i think you know the the big picture summary. Is that these These consent decrees in these investigations effective in helping to compel department to revise their policies and practices. But they take an enormous amount of resources and are hard to sue for department sec- ridiculously when they face a lack of internal or political support for continuing the reform. Brent when you look at the minneapolis police department. How would you as a reporter described the patterns of policing And maybe things that we here at. The national level aren't seeing an in terms of how well they're received by the community before potentially this the derek chauvin Trial but just in terms of how what their philosophy on policing is right so actually. There is a fair amount of data. Excuse me. I'm going back twenty years just about twenty years showing How minneapolis police department has Used a force more likely against African americans in the have White residents traffic stop data showing.

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

"And I mean I, think the last couple of years we've seen. We've seen the press sort of have to weather. Verbal attacks from the highest rungs a government and I think that's been a wide range, a conversation that has been happening in the press and in our newspapers and our airwaves for the last couple of years and so there's certainly a heightened attention being paid to that in terms of freedoms of the press in what our constitutional rights are with this escalating to physical violence This is not the first time. I think that there are reporters working particular beat here and abroad who have always been subject to violence to physical violence peeing. It happened domestically, and in such a widespread way I think has been jarring for some folks, readers and the public and reporters alight. In terms of changing attitudes. I think you made the point that the safety of journalists is not more important than the safety. Of anybody walking down the street, but I think that the. I think what we're likely to see you. What we are seeing is that. Folks are sort of using physical attacks on the press as a means by which they can get four people who previously didn't care about similar attacks on general members of the public particularly people from certain marginalized communities. She sort of get them to care to wake them up. It's the sort of is the argument that if it's happening, you know two reporters while they're live on CNN. Then think about what might be happening to people when there are no cameras around or to people who don't enjoy the prominence of being a national reporter and so I. think that there's a sort of awareness reading that it's not just about what it means. When the police are physically violent with the press when they're outside trying to do, their jobs would also went at suggests about the larger institution of saying and the violence that people in communities all over the country experience every day. And this piece goes in soon, really immune very extended history of this relationship between basically. The US almost being like a PR. Department for release. Which I want us to get into the? Can you start by telling us the story in site in your piece of Josh Lucille? Share so Joshua Bill the man from Indianapolis, who, in the fall of twenty, sixteen was in Chicago for a relative's funeral and there was a procession, a car procession, leaving cemetery in a neighborhood amount greenland in Chicago, in Mount Greenwood is a neighborhood that is a predominantly white in a city. In which the majority of the population are people of Color An, it's in particular notable because it's home to many of the city's cops and firefighters. And there's a cemetery there. They were leaving the cemetery after having buried a relative, and there was this sort of altercation on the street And basically. A car cut off some of the vehicles that were in the funeral a concession. And an argument began. People got out of their cars. And what happened was that to narratives quickly emerged Joshua beal guy out of his car, and they were two men who later found out. Were police officers off duty? Police officers, and there was there was sort of alive chaos. There is loud music. There is a lot of yelling. And this argument very quickly escalated and there were dozens of nine one one calls made from the scene, in which spice standards were describing two white men, waving guns around and Joshua beal, who is legally licensed to carry a firearm retrieved. A firearm from his car, and minutes later, he was dead in the street. And very quickly to separate narratives emerged from this scene. There is the police narrative and then there is voice. His family said what bystanders said. The police said that what had happened were two officers. Joseph Tracy and Thomas Heroin. I'm off duty and sort of happened upon this. HAPPENED UPON THIS Joseph Teresi got into an argument there was you know the police said that on someone had been walking a fire lane at. That's how the argument began. and. Notably. The police said that Joseph Sees Me Joshua. Beal had fired his weapon I and that they had returned fire on, and they also said that both Darwin Andruzzi were in uniform and obviously law enforcement. This was not reflected in any of the nine one one polls that came from bystanders and the family. Who's there insisted that it was not clear at all, but they were law, enforcement and so what you had. Is the police saying that they were justified in shooting and killing him because it was obvious that they were police in that he made the decision not to lower his weapon and everyone else saying that these were just too angry. White guys in the street, waving guns and that Joshua Bill. Br his firearm out in self defense. In response to them, having pulled a I and what happened is that. Reporters get to the scene and they start to write these stories, and they start to speak to the communications representatives on Who Represent the Chicago Police Department? And those details about The officers being uniform about. Having pulled his weapon I they start to leak into the stories that are written and that appear in local news media, and imports. You know the detail about the cops having been in uniform in particular release spread on sort of started with Anthony, the WHO's the chief communications off surfaces Chicago Police, department telling that to reporters on the police chief also repeated this to reporters. It appears on the nightly news in local newspapers. It was also many autopsy report. And you know guy and then months later nine one one calls are released and the family sort of from the first from day one had always insisted that no, they weren't in uniform and nobody had any idea who. These people were. And so you started to see this spread and spread and spread and it wasn't challenged you know by reporters until months and months and months later. This came you know just. Two years after the city of Chicago had erupted in protest over the murderer climate, donald, and so it was a familiar scene where you know, black man is killed by police and the police say happened in. Everyone else's that something else happened. who is a local reporter for the Chicago reader wrote a piece eighteen months later examining the misinformation particularly that the officers were in uniform and sort of detail. Why that hadn't been challenged I reporters even as through the course of the investigation of a this incident. Sort of began to reveal more and more. That, this was a blatant lie. The Look on with Donald case they put out of a fleet misrepresentation of his murder, and the only reason i. mean that was. That was feared because. Videotaped state suppressed actually got released the public. Right and so that you know with Quantum McDonald. The story was that. The officer was justified in Shooting and killing him because he had been holding a knife in at lunch. That reporters and then you know report a reporter style you know over a dozen freedom of information requests to release the tate that would show what actually happened and the all of them were denied the police departments line was that releasing it would interfere with their ability to conduct a proper investigation and so an investigative report the only reason it was released. Released, was because an investigative reporter sued the city and the department and a judge sided with the reporter, and so this ape was released, and what we know now. Is that what the police said? Happen Justin just never happened, and in fact that officer Jason Van Dyke. was later arrested and convicted.

They have to go in and totally revamp the hiring policies and the training policies. They have to ban Cho- Kohl's. They have to ban shooting in the back. and. They have to ban knees on your neck.

The you know the good cops to protect if you don't have police, you gotTA. Have Law and order you have to. The low. But the law and order has to be fair and just across the board. And the most law and order that needs to be put into place right now because we have law and order for regular people we don't have law and order for police is what we don't have. They're the ones right now. We have to police the police. Because they cannot continued, be able to continue to get away with these crimes against people of Color. Again. And our notes concert if you shoot an unarmed person, that's that's a crime. If you kill a black person, that's a crime. Bro How did is simple as change.

Why isn't not a major emphasis of investigation? These crimes have been unsolved for nearly thirty years.

We're talking to Captain Sonia Pruitt and thank you so much for being on Captain Hunters podcast. Thanks for inviting me. Your member of Law Enforcement Action Partnership as M. I in so just tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do for that organization just yourself in general okay Well I I call myself a transplant from north. Carolina ended up in the Washington metropolitan area as a student at how university Undergrad In nineteen eighty one. I've been here for a while now and I feel like I'm a a member of DMV as we call it the district Maryland. Virginia Became a police officer after deciding that being a doctor was not for me. I knew I was NOCCO. Stay up all night long doing any kind of internship or residency or anything like that. So they're not because I'm a science geek. I tried to go into Research so worked at the National Institutes of helpful. I don't like the repetitiveness of research This is no not for me so I became a police officer because as I was working for the US Postal Service Inspection Service. Which is their law. Enforcement Ranch I decided I wanted to go into law enforcement so I became a police officer as a yeah could be outside like being outside. I like being around people. This'll be fun and exciting. I did not know what I was getting myself into. Actually but I was ready for it. So that's how I became a police officer. I've been a police officer for twenty seven years. I'm currently a captain in charge of community engagement for the Montgomery County Police Department and I am also the chair woman The National Black Police Association and I got my my hat and various other incendiary rings of law enforcement and speaking and things like that. Very good awesome. Awesome my cousin. A currently works for the inspectional services. I'm hoping saying that right for the post office. He works service. He'd probably kill me tells me so many times but he actually is Located in Tampa Florida. So he's got a actually fairly wide range of territories. He's gotTa deal. With as far as his responsibilities e e installs Even saying he's installs a security surveillance equipment. Try to catch the postal workers. Stealing or yeah. Yeah yeah he's got some really cool guests. Can I wanted to have you on because I had a previous conversation with another person Leader of a black national black police officers of Association of America and So I wanted to have you on to talk about the importance of black police officers. And you know we're having a problem right now with the recruitment overawe police officer people do not want to be companies. Police officers overall but particularly. It's it's problematic within the black community. I want to have you on his to kind of talk about that and what we can do to fix this problem. Are you seeing A problem with getting more young people or more people particularly people colored black people to become police officer I'm not sure whether that is that. An urban legend or not Let me tell you why so in my career. I have worked in background investigation and we did. We were having that same dialogue always so hard to find particularly black people to become the police but I contend that there are plenty of black applicants out there. You just have to hire them. You cannot Find excuses not to hire them because of your implicit biases or your Your your overt biases. You cannot put them into a are you you. Can't you can't measure them by measurements? That are not the same measurements that you measure all the Atkins by meaning once they pass the basic parameters you don't get to add extra parameters for and I'm going to use this as a as a true example once you pass the parameters you can't say well they well. They have to have a bachelor's degree which they have but they didn't pass a class when they were in Undergrad. There's no such parameter. They have a bachelor's degree which is what the with the parameter is so I have seen that happen and you know question that and you know I had argued about it and that person was not hired so I'm going to say that if you're not doing everything you can to diversify your police department in a fair and impartial way that I'm going to throw out the window. That argument there are not enough Black Africans not enough women applicants not enough. Latino applicant is whatever the you know the category is. I'm going to say unless you're doing. They're fairly at across the board. And then I'm going to also add if you going out of your way to bypass the parameters in order to get certain hype of applicant or a certain category. Then you're not. You're still not playing fairly okay. So I am not clear Sir. Captain that that is really an issue. I think Anecdotally that it doesn't excuse because what I see is okay the black community. They have an issue with us so we can always say that they don't want to become the please I'm just not. I'm not convinced that when we had a black cat who was the director of our Personnel Division for instance with my police department. We didn't seem to have that issue. You one has to wonder what the issues really are. Okay that's that's a very fair very fair point. I too But I here's here's Mike attention and I too was a member of our background team in on all that kind of stuff recruit team and so. I went to colleges the schools Two Barber shops churches etc tried to get many applicants to sign up and many You know when you go to colleges we were heading You know some universities here in You Know Yukon Wiscon- Western Connecticut State University and other other schools. Rama stated Connecticut and even our home city and the people that were taking. The applications are showed some type of interest generally were white and many black applicants or or potential black applicants. Were would tell us straight out that they weren't interested in Assam down that saying that any didn't but those who dead Show some interest. Obviously you know they. They came on the Chicago Tribune. Awhile ago maybe I read. This article may be back in October or so September October. They did a really good article. I I can send it to if I can find it and it was talking about this whole problem that they were having in Chicago with all the problems. That Chicago Police Department has and they want more black people To to apply in their head of their personnel division for the city now as the police officers but for the city was talking about. How come there were no Not Enough Black applicants and one of the things that the that the personnel director was talking about was was similar to what you were just mentioning about about Going through with with this selection process many people are being weeded out for silly things that others others were not being weeded out as on on. And she was saying that. There's the legacy groups particularly Latino legacy groups right so so we have you. You remember the National Black Police Officers Association right so their legacy groups so a Latino groups Were actually staying with their applicants throughout the process right. So they're helping them back. Prepare for the physical prepare for the written. Prepare oral. And that was the difference. In why the Latino Applicants were doing better on the test whereas black people black officers or black applicants were taking a test and then that was it next time you see them was for their physical prison for the physical portion and they couldn't pass it will one of the reasons is obviously because you groups were not doing enough to make sure that they passed it so that was one of the critiques that the Personnel Director Had. I'd seen know and I liked the idea of Following the applicants so when I first apply My blue background. She was my and not in the background investigator Recruiter I missed my first test. I exit show up. I'll be lazy. You know that happens a lot with the cruise black white brown. You know because we are young and we're not Dedicated yet and and you know we're young. So she called me and she said. I'm a need you to come to this test and I said yes Ma'am I showed up so when I was in background I I remember having a conversation with one of the The executive that was there at the time and I said hey you know I had this idea. Why don't we make sure that we follow up with our African because we're having a problem with adversity A problem there's somebody says they have not sure really had one but anyway. Why don't we call advocate? Who we think things not to want to come and take the test to make sure they come in and take the test and she said well. We can't do that and I said why not. She said because that's against federal loss will turn we tell me see that we can understand it. Can we find that in the federal wreck so that we can read it and she never answered because there is no such thing so I suggested then because I got the impression that she was still some kind of way about calling black Africans? Why don't we just call? The Africans have to just call the black Africa's we can call them all and make sure that you know. They know that they need to come and take the test because they are most of them are young and we probably need to give them a little nudge ono that we can't do that. That's the guest federal rigs. That was like okay. So it's it's stuff like that they keep us from being able to hire qualified Women and Black and Latino Asian and so forth advocate in my opinion so my small vantage point and I and I take that unaccept- that I think that that's I think that what you're saying is absolutely valid and I and I'm not pushing back against that I'm trying to add to it and say that It is a it is a problem we do need to. Give people a nudge and we also have noticed. Where as you mentioned as you sat in your I out so meetings. Whatever and talked about okay. Wh why are we mountains personally because when they were? Fourteen smoke weed. Wh what are we talking about here So why are we? Why are we doing that? And we we had to have the same conversations with. Wait a minute okay. This guy got a ticket when he was eighteen. These these thirty three. Now what are you talking about? You know so so. Sometimes I think that the that the rules if not a fairly across the board can bounce people who could be potentially good applicants. I completely agree with that. So just tell us a little bit about The Organization the National Black Police Officers. Tell us a little about them. And what you do and as you are the chair woman and what. Your responsibilities.

"And when you say that it they were thrown away to clear up space in an evidence room. I'm that sounds very callous on its face. But you know, I'm not in law enforcement. I don't know how much evidence law enforcement agencies have to go through. What did you make of that rationale? Yeah. Obviously that's something all on forcing agencies have to take into account. We we have a limited space for evidence collection and evidence submission evidence stored. So it is something that has to be taken into account. But there comes a time where certain pieces of evidence probably need to be given more of a priority. Over other pieces talk about the culture of the Fayetteville police department at the time, particularly as it relates to the way that rape and sexual assault were investigated were treated compared to other crimes like robbery. Or homicide or a non sexual assault. Yeah. Back then we just didn't really do that great a job. And I had this conversation recent with that recently with Ashley, and I told her I don't really wanna come across like, I'm pointing fingers like I'm this high and mighty great detective because I was there I investigated rapes in the nineties and night. I did not do that great job with a lot of the rapes I investigated. So just the culture was and I'm sure this wasn't, you know, unique to the fabled police departments just they weren't always a priority, rapes weren't always a priority. The you know, I was crimes against persons detective, and you know, homicides were the priority business armed robberies after that aggravated assaults after that. And usually after that is where the rapes fell into line. And we just didn't have quite an understanding. I think of the dynamics of rapes investigations, or why victims might not always make sense, you know, when we're interviewing and so they they weren't always a priority. And I think just over the years we've made some significant movements. Definitely want to talk about that as we continue our conversation. And we're starting to get some comments from you, particularly your stories of dealing with this firsthand. Laurie wrote on our Facebook page hearing things like this make me feel certain. I did the right thing for me by not reporting. My rape. This is proof that women's lives. Don't matter and undoubtably women of color experience this more than white women. Actually, I'd like you to respond to that last comments. I read that's heartbreaking. But it's understandable. And I can certainly. I can certainly see where she's coming from having reviewed along with my colleagues sonum Bashan Sergio Hernandez who are the other reporters on this investigation reviewing more than fourteen hundred rape investigations. This is certainly a a widespread problem we found that law enforcement agencies.
