"Today Well yesterday you had a program at which you discussed the ever and more increasingly present black flags Yes and I wrote about it in my daily rant today as well At some point Oh really Yeah Yeah Oh okay I haven't opened my mailbox yet but I will check it out But I did want to point out to you that there's a variation on that black flag and I don't know if you're aware of it And it has a blue it has a blue line in it Right And that represents the connection between white supremacy and the police And you'll notice that when Donald Trump holds his rally he always talks about how we led our police What I'm trying to say to you is something that you and I have talked about for years There is no question particularly between an anti black racism what I call black ism And white supremacy and the police They're just isn't And this imagery Tom yesterday on your program that was someone who called and actually openly talked about Civil War And a civilized way I think it's on everyone's mind whether you want it to be or not But being a black man in the United States I just wanted to give you what may be to you and your listeners a strange point of view This stuff is very concerning to men like me The George Floyd or the police Reform Act was killed Although a year ago the country was on fire with this stuff all of a sudden that has gone away We've got black flags being flown which are direct signals because we always get the we're always the first of the worst So if there is to be openly violent conflict in this country we know who is going to come down on the most And there are a great deal of black men like myself who are very concerned about this Tom and I know that everybody else wants to talk about everything else But for us this is existential And along with all of that we've got people from Haiti who they're not dreamers all of a sudden They can whipped with the stirrups or horses So and along with all of that let me just say that we have the amount Arbery trial beginning on Monday And rittenhouse coming up soon So let me tell you something the United States of America your problem that is your deepest problem is still your deepest problem Oh yeah Oh yeah And the black flag was flown over multiple massacres of black people during and immediately after the Civil War including a lusty Ford pillow poison spring and the crater There's a book about this It's called black flag over Dixie racial atrocities and reprisals in the Civil War by Gregory Irwin and he writes when the unions black defenders responded in kind in other words jumped into the battle The Civil War is descended to a level of inhumanity that most Americans prefer to forget That's right Slaughters of African Americans became the norm for federate soldiers often under the banner of a black flag And here they are And now they're flying all over the country It's an Amazon is selling them I mean the ones that I linked to in my article are now on Amazon Made in China Isn't that something Isn't that something In fact it says Amazon recommended So you can check it out It's incredible Chaotic thank you Thank you It's nice to hear from it Norm in Tampa Florida he norm what's on your mind How are you doing I'm alive and kicking out Oh I hear that That's great That's great I want to just somewhat piggyback I'm a black man here in the United States and I'm also a pharmacist and a dentist And what I want to just prep is by saying this on October 20th this month next week there is a large market in American pain and disability that's coming in about this coming from people protesting that they're not being able to get proper treatment for their pain And that is a direct result of the insurance companies who have jumped into bed with the corruption in the department of justice that don't want to pay positions for their services So what they do is they call in the Department of Justice DEA and say hey these guys are committing healthcare fraud And we have a very interesting case in California where we have a doctor named doctor Bill singi Ganesh And she's married to a black doctor Elect guy named Greg vulture at three small children And they didn't want to pay doctor Ganesh So what did they do they invited her and invited her husband and when they couldn't find anything they brought in these folks records and stuff And doctor belcher who was a navy veteran of captain and the navy orthopedic surgeon he was convicted on $217 invoice for putting the wrong date on it Wow And she's yeah your previous read about it And this is all predicated on the assumption that people are the doctors are prescribing too many narcotics or pharmacies or dispensing too many They're using that as the excuse basically for all this stuff Absolutely And they've gotten away with it And so.

"And i was like honestly no i'm tired of. This is exhausting. Unknow look if you wanna talk let me know. But that's the kind of thing like the clearly. I noticed that versus everyone else. Who acted like it didn't happen versus a different colleague. Who's like. Oh wow somebody shot by. I don't even know okay. You have the luxury to not know or not care. And that's what i mean by the extension of that versus you see people happen conversations about politics or something else and then it's oh. He has a different view than i thought. Or ooh she is probably a cairn in look at stuff and you notice it and you just file it away in the back of your head right. So that's what i mean by the extension of like you get to when they say. Bring your whole self to work first off. I don't agree that necessarily everyone should bring their whole self to work. I no no what should bring one hundred percent. If you're going to get as close as you want maybe bring eighty but even eighty think is reserved for certain types of people in those types of people tend to be straight able body white man. I was intrigued by your post. The computer generated apocalypse. That never happened. And i wonder where you see. This particular trajectory progressing with regards to like social media a i venture capital even is and if we stay on our current path they are some that would say the wealth gap gets brought in minority communities. Get hurt even more than they are. Is this the same thing as the the apocalypse that never happened. Or where do you see this progressing as we continue to go down the road of ai in certain people getting funded versus other groups of people getting funded and and like i think what you could say. In that case. I wouldn't say it would be a computer generated apocalypse. That never happened. I would say computer generated apocalypse. That did happen And i think we we all saw it it. It all happened in real time with disinformation. All over everyone social media forms. It's still happening in terms of the vaccine. People don't want to take the vaccine. Because we'll i read. They're putting microchips. Like where are you all getting this. But it's one of those things that if you are using traditional outlets to get your information which i don't think is necessarily always a bad thing but like i'm not taking any type of you know. Medical advice from alex jones info wars. There's just not ever going to happen. And i definitely don't need tucker carlson to tell me. That covert isn't isn't really real. And i don't need a vaccine while you were vaccinated are yeah so to me. It's we've seen this already happened in real time. And it's still continuing to happen. And i think if there isn't any type of actual regulation i don't know that we can prevent it from getting worse. You've i mean you've already thrown in election and now you giving people sick. So it's it isn't that it's not happening. It is happening. The question is how do we stop it. And i think the best answer that you have for that is and i don't know that social media companies in particular will like the answer is right now. They are distinguishes platforms. Which means they're not subject to certain regulation politics few publishers. Now they have a responsibility and but they don't want him which i could understand their attitude is will wear just the mechanism in the portal for which you post and share whatever cat videos pictures are your kids or trump lost the election or he won the election. Whichever you choose. And they don't wanna be responsible for having to take down information about. Oh no he won the election of stolen and you know those were loving tourists that visited on january six like they don't want the responsibility of that which i understand but at some point. You can't just continue to proliferate all of this like you can't this essentially the equivalent the digital equivalent of throwing rocks and hiding your hand. That's also why i there's another Social media company that. I liked lot call telepathic. Because you actually have to use your real name and picture or you cannot participate bursts. Twitter's like somebody would cat photo and like don one two three four and he's calling you everything but child guide. I think there are some of that would be skirted if people could not hide in anonymity. There was this period during kovin and right after the murder. George floyd We're black people. I feel like had this window of opportunity to capitalize is the wrong word but for the sake of conversation capitalized on the attention that we had from venture capitalists from corporations for people who finally saw that we weren't crying wolf all these years with our. They were actually actually systemic issues. That kept us from being able to progress in many different areas of our lives Is that window now close. We are we are we so far passed it to where they don't have to talk about it anymore. They don't have to pay attention anymore. That is a good question. And i've thought about this for a while myself I bite my prediction was that it was probably gonna be over either. After the election around january after inauguration. I would say it's not closed what it's closing and the reason being is. I think there's a course now at a different added element to it where you have all of these boating restrictions being written into state loss and you also have these two democratic senators who refused. Do away with the filibuster in order to right right that wrong and get federal legislation passed like they don't want the john lewis zag. Don't want for the people they definitely. don't want. George floyd policing reform act. But i think as long as those things are still churning. In on the table the window still open then. I would just say it was open like this last summer. And it's probably open like this now. So it's it's there is just closing. But i also think that that's on us to.

"I would say this. I think that there's a heightened level of accountability that most agencies recognized and being employed on officers all country. that said. let's not forget that the police chief several officers testified you know of the murderer. Go sexy they wanna make an instant message. Twenty four s to gatien Has profession tired. They're certainly welcome. That will not eugene. We noted there were a number of calls in the wake of the sentencing and as chuck put at some people were satisfied with it. Some people were not but a number of calls for congress to at long last pass. A police reform act where to the best of your knowledge. Does that stand as of tonight. It seems we're few weeks off still of getting an actual bill right on. There's three big players here senator. Tim scott the republican senator cory booker representative karen bass who had been negotiating in. All three of them have said they'd been negotiated negotiating in good faith which is in rare form nowadays in washington. Dc they. They've been talking constantly about the things that they wanna see. In actual bill mayfield. They have a framework. The issue is this is an example of why debt mayes in washington. Dc Deadline soft deadlines. Kind of joe deadlines are bad because they they move around quite a bit back past the may twenty fifth death mind that president biden thrust on them Senator scott at one point said junior bust. It seems like bus has occurred. We're moving past that in. They have a lot. They still have quite a bit of work to do. Even though there's a lot of pressure on them especially after today to get something done immediately they're still discussing in arguing about officers use of force qualified immunity which is allowed whether or not to allow people to sue police officers or any of those deaths that happen in that treatment that happens and that is one issue with democrats are in danger of losing some progressive house members. someone might court bush out of missouri. She called it her red line to have in something about qualified immunity in this final bill. That's gonna come back from the sinister so that they still have a lot to work out there and they're still trying to figure out. Just what is the right Goup of things to make sure that this passes both in the senate and the house. You're right about politicians and deadlines. I don't imagine it would go over. Well if you ask the editor at politico just simply move a deadline a few days. Hey chuck i We're gonna get into greater detail on this later. But i wanna talk about the trump story in new york for just a bit here Why did the new york. Ag office presumably tip their hand to someone about what was in the offing for next week. And it seems to me. I don't want to sound naive. But there are two basic choices Someone with loose lips around a reporter or someone asking with with some kind of permission. Some side of some kind of an aim may be to get weisselberg to flip in public well. It's also possible. Brian that in from new york. Ag's office had a conversation with a representative of the trump organization. A lawyer and told them that. Look here your options. We're planning to charge the company and so you can either plead guilty or you can wait until we charge you. Those types of conversations happen all the time particularly in white collar cases. There are pre indictment negotiations not unusual not nefarious. Nothing wrong with it. But you're right There seems to be other sources of information here not entirely sure where they're coming from but i do think it's the new york times is to be believed and they've been pretty good of late It looks like the trump organization is going to get charged with serious crimes related to the operation of their business. Something we should absolutely talk about a little bit later. Eugene also this week we saw the senate spectacularly with on voting rights and yet the action today from the attorney general aimed at georgia. Do you have any reporting that absent legislation from our lawmakers. This may be the way the administration is going to go state by state if they have to. Yeah i think that's exactly what's gonna end up happening right because there is no world right now with something that deals with voting rights is going to make it through congress in the split that we have With even with some of the moderate democrats who are have issues with s one. Which was the bill that failed to even get the discussion in the senate and so this is what the administration has talked about over and over and over about using book every single lever that it has available to work on things that they know. They can't get done in congress right and that includes voting rights that includes any other cities and anything that can go through reconciliation and salutes happening. Now this is kind of the justice department kind of going on the offensive saying that. Hey we acknowledging that something basic. Something bad happened here in georgia they have. This ball was targeted and to make sure that black people couldn't vote That is what the justice department is going to look at. And there's a conversation that's been happening on the right saying whether or not you know. This is political actors doing something. But this was always going to happen right. This will we were always going to see this justice department. You could see it when a mirror garland was going through his nomination and confirmation process that he was going to go after states if he felt like voting rights were endangered. He's talked about that over and over he's talked about beefing up the Groups of people in the justice department who work on voting rights. Because you know the while. They're not supposed supposed to do political errands. The justice department does know the political realities of this country. A couple of notes for our guests and our viewers along the way chuck rosenberg. You're not off the hook. I have a few more legal questions for you after the break chief best. I owe you some airtime when we get your wifi audio straightened out so we can hear your brilliant answers and as we thank our guests for starting us off on this last night of the week. Congratulations are in order for one of them. Eugene daniel's got engaged this week eugene big congratulations from all of us. Who reside in your tv family. All the best..

While most national media outlets spent a significant amount of their coverage yesterday, marking the one year anniversary of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Few of them covered this angle. Since the death of George Floyd, nearly 200 Minneapolis officers have left the force here is what a former Minneapolis police officer named Steve Dykstra told Fox News. It is our featured audio clip this hour. Well, this goes back. Before George Floyd. Sense around 2015. I know the city. Minneapolis has been backpedaling, taking tools away from police to enforce the law and keep the streets safe. I see that George Floyd Advantis Tragic is awas as Kind of a build up of years of backpedaling by the police. When when police don't have any tools to use anymore, they They feel pretty helpless out there. Um, you take away loitering laws. Pursuit ability of pursuit vehicles. You don't have to stop for the police in Minneapolis anymore. Thanks to Mayor Fry in the city Council, that is Mark, wait. I have to get frustrated. Wow. And you see is chaos. Violence and real curtain crime. 200 officers have left that force since George Floyd's death and in a lot of mother good cops, you know, the good ones are leaving. Well, I understand his point about officers feeling helpless, but You know, you can't excuse what happened? No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Nobody's excusing the bad behavior. But the reality is is that officers are leaving. They're not feeling the support another good cops. And then and then we just had the story in Sacramento. They're going another different direction at a time in places like Saint Louis or de funding officers. They're adding more police officers in Sacramento. You know, it seems like which is a good idea to add the police officers and also at the programs to assist the police officers handled the situation, of course, like the mental health issues and that sort of thing. Absolutely. I mean, those those programs where they have combined the two to go out have been successful so far. Well, we wanted to bring you that aspect of the story because much of the reporting yesterday did not. Clued that which is a full as a full picture of the whole story. Exactly. So okay, I'm gonna give you three things. And you tell me what decade there from? Okay. Acid washed jeans, Uh, scratches and Newt Gingrich. Eighties. Close, like late eighties early nineties, right, so new. Gingrich is back on the scene, apparently, and he is sitting down with former president Trump also the Trump's former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and Senator Lindsey Graham. They all got together and Mar a Lago. And, you know, maybe you played some golf. I don't know, but they're coming up with a new contract. For America. Oh, you're kidding. Contract with America. Remember Newt Gingrich in the contract with America? It turned out to be a wildly successful for Newt Gingrich his political career. They're all sitting down to talk about what a new version of this would look like. That is very interesting. So there especially when we talk about the makeup of the Republican Party and the fight for control, Right, right. I mean math Vitus, still yet to be won by either side is not manifested itself. Yeah, but that is what's going on, apparently behind the scenes. In the Morrow lock that is a brand new development and it's a very interesting one of new contract for America. I wonder what they would call it like two point. Oh, that's what everyone ever nice to call things to point on. All right, they're using that template that OK time now for the top national stories. From ABC News. I'm Sherry Preston, the Manhattan district attorney's office, announcing that a special grand jury has been ceded to decide whether criminal charges are warranted against the Trump Organization. ABC News has learned that witnesses have already been contacted about appearing before the grand jury, which is set to meet three days a week for up to six months. ABC News chief Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl It's the kind of step that a prosecutor takes when they have evidence of a crime. And are preparing to move forward with charges. Of course. Ultimately, it'll be up to that grand jury to decide whether or not those charges are pursued in a statement, the former president calls it a witch hunt being driven by highly partisan prosecutors. At the White House. President Biden and Vice President Harris met with the family of George Floyd on Tuesday, the Police Reform Act named in Floyd's honor, however, it's still stalled in the Senate. Floyd family described this is a really personal meeting with the president and said bite and renewed his promise to push for real reforms. The president had hoped to get this done by yesterday's anniversary of Floyd's murder. Washington obviously missed that moment.

According to the CDC. Half of all American adults have been fully vaccinated at this point to get more people the shot Brown University's doctor, She's just as companies should help out. We talk a lot about a hesitancy. I think that's the wrong way to think about it For a lot of working class people, it's not easy to take time off. To figure out where to go. So we've got to make it as easy as possible and give people a chance to recover after they've had their vaccine. If they need a day off fish you wanted to get that day off.

No, no 100 hours ago from your job, So they were fired from the job. Yeah, sure they would check their bank accounts. Yeah, I did take the Clintons making no.

He was on Epstein's play Big deal when he was you The times where he scratched the Secret service guys. No one ever hears. Oh, bother anybody in the media? Why isn't anybody asking that It's so bizarre and Bill Gates to it? It popped up again. Bill Gates. His divorce was like, Well, his wife really wasn't happy with him rolling around the country. The world with that, dude, Jeffrey Epstein, Uh, so at least, Melinda Gates has a little bit of backbone. A little bit of moral compass. Yeah, exactly right.

Today, as props is they brought them to the White House on the one year anniversary of George Floyd's death, and this is This is disturbing to me. This is this is borderline. You could go and call it if you want. I'm gonna go with borderline racism. This is you are you are stoking the flames of race by doing this And you know, he said bite. He had him through the Oval Office and he gave them each little tokens, You know, picture of him with George White's daughter and things you Joe Biden gave them a picture of Joe Biden with George Village Daughter. Give George look at Judge Voight's daughter. A picture of him and wow. Yeah. This is a problem with me, Joe. It's all political. And this is my cynicism coming out because I read an article about Joe Biden. I don't It was over the weekend or yesterday. Whatever it was, it was about how Joe Biden prefers Orange. Gatorade was in the Washington Post. It was about how he works out. He starts his day by lifting weights, and he's in the old Fool office by little bit after nine A.m., and he works up until six or seven PM that he has dinner with his family. He often interrupts his meetings when his granddaughters call this sector's this piece about Joe Biden in the piece they mentioned for probably the good zillions time. Come on. Joe Biden was young senator from the state of Delaware. His wife and child were killed in a car accident. Obviously, that's tragedy. Obviously, that's mentioned for Joe Biden's benefit as often as possible. Was 50 years ago, basically, and he keeps mentioning and its keep mention about him And every article every story about Joe Biden that has to be brought up. I understand that shaped his life. I understand his tragic I understand. That I'm grateful that I've never had to go through that. However, it's very convenient that it's in there all of the time. Bring us back to George Floyd. It's the same idea they're trying to sell us on. Joe Biden, president of the United States is a decent man. Well, you know who else is a decent man? Mike Russell. Listen, man, I like to consider myself a decent man. OK, most people I hang out with are decent. Otherwise it wouldn't hang out with him. So decency is nothingto. Strong. It's just what we are. Most people are decent people. So I don't know why that stands out so much this false attempt to make Joe Biden into the superhero. No, we all lose family. I've lost family lost lots of family. Okay, I get it. It sucks. It's not. It's not a thing you wish upon anybody but to keep bringing it up to show this part of my moral character that people in my family have died.

It is just not running for office. That's a relevant to. I mean, George Boy's family says Biden and Harris showed genuine care during their White House meeting. In a quote, I think genuinely, he wanted to know exactly how we were doing and what he could do to support us, says Floyd's nephew, Brandon Williams. Yeah, It's a photo op and your people dragged up there for a photo op in Nancy Pelosi used us a photo op. That's all it was. This was your prop. You're here to advance their career. They're not genuinely caring how you are feeling understand that Joe Biden said that George Boyd's death is basically more. What did he say? Socially important than my King's assassination? Who led an entire movement that Little Civil Rights act being passed? So they should know right there. At that point, they're being used as pawns that Biden picked him up in the DNC said. Oh, we're using this. This is this is for our advantage. And I don't like this. I'm not comfortable with this.

"police reform act" Discussed on KQED Radio

"To be able to stay in place just like you need a meaningful legislation in these times. We need to get this taken care of The family spoke separately with Democratic Senator Cory Booker and Republican Senator Tim Scott, who are leading negotiations for a compromise to get the bill passed at the White House. President Biden and vice president hairs posted the family privately. He spoke to reporters afterward. D let us know that he supports passing the bill, but he wants to make sure that it's the right building not averse appeal. At today's White House briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki said President Biden was hopeful it consensus could be reached. We have been respecting the space needed for the negotiators to have these discussions about where they can find common ground and where they can find agreement. The federal efforts come as many cities and states have moved to change policing policies. After Floyd's death last July, Minnesota became one of the first states to ban police choke, hold and mandate mental health training for police officers, among other things, and today, the Floyd family announced the launch of a fund to benefit businesses and community organizations in the neighborhood where George Floyd died. They'll be using money from the family's $27 million settlement with Minneapolis in August. Three officers who are on the scene was showman are set to stand trial for their involvement here. That's a serious before today's event at George Floyd Square and Associated Press Journalists captured the sounds of what he said were 30 gunshots, a block away from the intersection. A reminder of the challenges facing the neighborhood. And Jimmy's joins me now. So you mean should you reported George Floyd's family met with President Biden today? What more do we know about that meeting? This was an hour long private meeting between President Biden, who has known tragic public loss in the Floyd family. That, of course, also knows tragic public loss, of course, at the hands of police Now President Biden I'm told was very personal with this family has gotten to know this family over the last year he's had multiple conversations with them before the verdict after the verdict. He talked a lot about the about the family's well being asking them. How are they doing? How are they coping? Do they have the resources they need. The president also released a statement and I want to read part of it to you, he said, for any family experiencing a profound loss the first year, Canfield that they got the news a few seconds ago, and they've had to relive that pain and grief at each and every time. Those horrific nine minutes and 29 seconds have been replayed that statement, of course, talking about the nine minutes and 29 seconds that Derek Shobin kneeled on the neck of George Floyd. I'm told by the void family as well as in public statements that the president spent some time really talking to them about processing their grief. He also spent some time playing with Chiana Floyd. That's George Boyd's Daughter. She ran into the president's arms, he said, and also said I'm hungry. Do you have some snacks? He gave her some ice cream and Cheetos. So you see there sort of really genuine back and forth there. But the president also assured this family that he is gonna be pushing for policing reform. And speaking of that, you Misha. The president had called for Congress to pass the George Floyd Policing Reform Act by now, by this anniversary, but so far, no bipartisan agreement. What do we know about where that stands? President Biden spoke to the flight family about this, and he said he was not happy with the idea that the deadline that, he said, which is today, the year anniversary of George Boyd's murder that there wasn't a policing legislation that he could sign into law today. That said he told the family that he doesn't want to rush this that he really wanted to be a bill with substance that said the Bidet administration's overall racial justice agenda is going forward. Just today. Kristen Clarke was it was confirmed by the Senate. She's going to be the first black woman to head the civil rights division at the Department of Justice. That, of course, is the division that works specifically with police departments on policy and practices. She's expected to be sworn in tonight by Vice president Hair. So even though the legislation is somewhat stalled on, they're still engulfed to go there. There is, of course, Kristen Clark. Now they're at the DOJ. And finally image. The death of George Floyd, of course, triggered these conversations about policing but also about race and racism in America. And you've done a lot of reporting about this over the last Year. You've traveled. You've talked to people. What? What is your sense of where we are one year later. Well, one year later, after the death of George Floyd, we have really experienced a profound shift in perspective and also profound disappointment in live realities of so many people of color in this country. So there is this real breath that's been breathed into black. The Black lives matter movement with corporations and companies really looking at systemic racism, Having that racial reckoning that we always talk about really talking about diversity in the need for change. But they're also has been Israel push back through pushing back on on the idea of even talking about slavery and the 16 19 history. They're they're also, of course, is this idea that black Americans are still 2.5 to 3 times more likely to be killed by police and white Americans, and each day they're still African Americans waking up Terrified of the police having to teach their Children how to survive police interactions even if they're unarmed, even if they're doing nothing wrong, So a lot of a lot of change but so much more to go, and we know those conversations are going to continue you Mishka. Sender reporting today on this day that all of us are marking, you means thank you. Thanks. And members of George Floyd's family also met today with Congresswoman Karen Bass of California. She is the House Democrats lead negotiator on police reform legislation. That was, as we said, named after George Floyd. I spoke with her a short time ago. Representative Karen Bass. Thank you so much for joining us. Let me first ask you about your conversation with the George Floyd family. Tell us about it, Okay? I mean, this is a very difficult day for the family. Any time there's an anniversary of birthday, you know, or today Commemorating it was one year ago. It's a painful day for them. And and so our conversation was just them encouraging Congress to finish the job on also expressing that they thought it was more important that the job be done correctly, rather than rushing tow have a bill just to meet a deadline. So I was happy to hear that I was happy to hear it to know that they were not disappointed, but that they were encouraged because our talks have been moving forward. You say they've been moving forward. What? What did you tell them about the status of the talks? Well, I told them that Senator Booker and Senator Scott and I were talking regularly that we were examining the comprehensive bill that was passed in the house. And you know, it's almost never that a bill passes. The house goes to the Senate and nothing changes. So we were also talking about different parts of the bill that they feel are very important. For example, the part of the bill that essentially holds officers accountable what happened to their brother that the entire world witness they never want to see another family go through. You're referring to something that's called qualified immunity, legal protection for officers. You've said that this has to be in the bill, Republicans have said. They don't want it in the bill. Where do you see this headed? Well, it's one of many items that are on the table for us to negotiate. And I'm hoping that that we will find a resolution. You know what the bill is about. And what this moment in our history is about is really looking at the profession of policing and modernizing it. You know, the profession that has the ability to take away your freedom and take away your life. Really should meet. The highest of standards should be transparent, should hold each other accountable If an officer sees another officer brutalizing someone, and they have a legal obligation to intervene. That's one of the Provisions in the bill. We have 18,000 police departments across the country and 18,000 different ways of doing policing. Any profession that reaches that point needs to.
