"Kings and queens with real power are a relic of the past in europe. Most of them today play ceremonial figurehead roles limited by their constitutions in britain pulls tell us most people are more or less supportive of the role. The windsors play as their royal family. Their lives are a regular beat for the british press and there are many elegance stops in british tourism connected to the queen and her family. Paul guest was an electrician on her majesty's royal yacht britannia when he was in the royal navy today. He works as a tour. Guide based in belfast. He's joined by. Elizabeth boardman a tour guide from bath not far from london. They're here to help us. Americans better understand the royals. In britain by the way our interviews recorded just prior to the global pandemic shutdowns liz. Paul thanks for joining us. Thank you very much right because if it's an interesting thing for us there's still kings and queens and in belgium and the netherlands spain over scandinavia. But they really have little power. But what's the purpose. Why do you. Brits willingly tax money to have kings and queens and princes printing around your country. I know that's a question that we always get asked his guides when we're doing our tours and yet one of the questions i always ask for members is put your hands up if you came on this tour just because we have a royal family. No one ever does that. We've got so much more to offer but the royal family are a big attraction for us as well because immediately. I'm sure if we just said prince charles prince william prince harry. Everyone has a visual of who they are because of the world media but for us as british citizens. It's a lot more than that. We're very personal about them. If we were to believe the Recent opinion polls approximately eighty eight percents of the british public are in favor of royal family which is quite surprising considering everyone still coming out of a depression and financial difficulties a hard but we like having the royals whether something actually practical about it and heavy responsibility to be a royal. Because do all the ceremonial stuff. I mean it's almost a fulltime job to be cutting edge hospitals and in the united states. We don't have anybody to do the ceremonial stuff except our politicians and in britain you can kind of divide. It threw the ceremonial stuff and politicians do the legislating. Yeah it's shared out between the royals. It's judy the of a sheduled which Follow i just want to reiterate what elizabeth sand and what what i think is It's a low for the royal family. I think we actually do love having a royal family On top of the huge amount of interest abroad and and brings in tourism and an income for the country to your heritage is sort of a celebration of england. Yeah goosebumps jurist. It's it's very interesting. So they are limited by the constitution so Do they have any political power at all. If a if a royal had a strong feeling about something what would they do. The house been royals of mid their feelings known especially prince charles on certain subjects. But as far as i'm aware they are told to sort of rain in a little bit on. Keep their opinions to themselves. So let's have a quick review of the royal family these days. Of course we've got queen elizabeth. She's getting old but she seems to be Still the metal name is did you of edinburgh also known as prince philip prince philip in their children so the eldest is prince charles who will be on next monarch followed by his sister. Princess own followed by his brother prince andrew. I'm also also a further brother. Who is prince edward. So all of these people are healthy and still in public Very match very much in the next generation. There's probably a lot of nieces and nephews. There is many nieces. And as we're speaking at the moment we've got three kings and one queen in waiting to go on the throne. What does that mean well. Basically what it means the next person in line for the throne when the queen dies will be prince. Charles right that will then be followed. By prince william his eldest son then prince william's eldest son prince george. Okay then we have his prince william's daughter princess charlotte. So i said that makes sense when the eldest son know if charles had an older daughter would she be next in line or is it still the old fashioned. Still be william. But when william and kate. Kate middleton who is william's wife when they were expecting prince george the eldest son. The law was changed if owner. So they couldn't grandfathered in but yeah grandfathered in so to speak the before the child was born. They changed the law. So they how that's historic it's historic. Donner gets the same rights in the lineage jackson. As it turned out they had prince george. But if prince george's had been girl it would have been a queen. Wow

Any anything sports related and just being a kid is something that you know any. Kate wants Opportunity to be great and For me growing up there I had so many resources so many people that look to so many people idolize and You know I just think that you know. I'm lucky to be from where I'm from specifically with basketball fans and is documentary. What do you think people are going to get out of it as they put your community you know on the big screen? What what do you think? We're going to get out of it when we watch it on. Just how together? We are close. We are on Japanese to each other is no hate is no jealousy is nothing is really all loving and and it's really a brotherhood. I think you know we started looking at different cities. What players from each city we compare to? La's in New York's Chicago's are we talking about one county. You're talking about one small Canada. Where all five ten minutes away from each other like we all grew up together. Go to school together. Go to church. Same Church Saint barbershops everything. So I think that's the the unique part about it and I think a lot of people don't really realize mystique until you start naming names and It's just an amazing pool of talent and not just basketball this thousands. Are you ella more about you? Know Our county absolutely. I mean you talk about yourself. Obviously Kevin Durant bitter depot as well. We just go on and on with the names. Do you think you talk. You're talking a lot about unity. Community love friendship. Do you think that's a major reason? Why the ratio of the growth of NBA on and has come obviously talented as as a major part of it. But this support around each one each individual's party a big key. Would you say you agree with that now for sure they everybody plays a big part on for me? It's like the guys who made the NBA are the only guys really get. You know that publicity opposite or resources is different than fans in basketball coach watches on a nightly basis. But for me it's like the people didn't make it. We all have a lot of guys who knows chose wrong on paths and you know. Sometimes the political side worked in their favor and basketball so they didn't get to go as far as we did so for us is like we want to share like everybody to the people who didn't make the people who helped us gave coaches the. Is Everything Pioneers in? Dc in a pressure county is something that means a lot to Louis so you talk a lot about that amplifying everybody and you know you actually show that a lot with your own foundation alongside your family. You know just continuing to help the area especially during this time earlier this month for example handing out meals to local police and firefighters. How important is it to you that you stay close to this community? Even when you're you know across the country as the world it means the world you. I don't know how much it means for for myself for my peers. Continue to give back and help on is is is just a blessing. Because that's what the guys before us and we wanted to keep you know of moving at four because we WANNA help everybody and no for my family just to be on. Frontline baroness this and helping out and You know it also basketball player. Not Like my family would does the same thing I grew up. We always know Thanksgiving Christmas we will go feed the homeless and stuff like that trying to help out on. My parents has always tried to instil. Like you know you guys are looking. You have a roof over your over here. You have two parents you you you. You're not missing meal. You have closing back on. Never not deaf granted so now that started early so I think I can speak for myself personally about it made the NBA or not. My family and myself were still be on the front line. No helping others. Because that's how we raise. Yeah and even more so now during this pandemic you see that. Know that unity even more. So let's talk about you Quinn for for you've previously talked quite honestly about your experiences at the damn especially when it broke out and when you took the test early on how how was it for you. What were those feelings? And how are you feeling? Now as the country deals with this year the tests on my experience I mean I think a lot of people will tell you uncomfortable nor is is a rough but Knows where it just to have a peace of mind. You'll get the right information and how to go about things in the you never would have thought the world could come to this saying. It's the worst thing that can happen ever but is a unique talk for all of us and we don't really have a grasp what was going on like. There's like no right answer like no just a lot no vaccines or anything. So listened to the experts. Listen to our government and just take a precaution up staying Away people staying away from large crowds cracking social dissing washing hands for twenty seconds. All that stuff counts all that Madison matters a lot of stuff that we grew up. No being taught really so no I just go about it. How everybody else is trying to stay positive. It could be a lot worse while pray for the families in people who are affected by this who can go to work. Wet Live on a check-check basis in their checks on coming in because there's no work With people whose family situations and household situation are comfortable or you know just very lucky. I'm very lucky and blessed. The seed is not going on and can't go outside as much but Noah it could be worse on for myself so always keep that in mind and I'll just trying to out.

"This inking freely with ACLU of Maryland show that talks about what's happening politically in Maryland from the courts to the streets. I'm your host Amber Taylor Taylor. Axa just as an opportunity is too often based upon skin color. Something Black and Latino people know far too well. People of Color have been fighting as racist systems and government policies that discriminate against us since the beginning of the country but what happens when people of color work within a government institution that has a long history of systemic racism. A government institution that often discriminates against the communities that they come from and themselves yourselves one of these institutions is the Prince George's county police department. The Department serves a community whose residents are eighty percent black and Latina cts. And it's no secret that the police and black resin is heavy. Longstanding damaged relationship brought on in part by decades of racial profiling. Police abuse an unconstitutional. Nope police practices one group. That has been caught in the middle are opposite of color in the printers is county. Police departments back in December two thousand eighteen thirteen obstacle. Oh color with the printers is County Police Department along with the Hispanic National Law Enforcement Association and the United Black Police Officers Association volley lawsuits in Federal Court. That challenge the department's pattern and practice of unconstitutional conduct to put it. Frankly the longstanding failure of leadership within the printers printers county. Police Department has worsened under the current. Police chief he is. Allow the dominance of white officers fostered racist conduct and retaliation against officers in communities of Color and undermined the effectiveness of the department. Today we are joined by Lieutenant. Sonya Sola coffer and retired Captain Joe Perez President of the Hispanic National Law Enforcement Association to discuss why they decided to file this lawsuit. And we'll talk often about the message to other opposites of color and women officers fighting against discrimination in their police departments so Sonia Joe thank you so much after being on thinking freely. I really appreciate you coming on. We appreciate you inviting us. Thank you for having us so I wanted to start this conversation off Just it's getting like a a baseline as to you know what really attracted you you all to being and becoming police officers start. I was a meeting planner winner for maybe fifteen years and I traveled a lot negotiating contracts. And I've been a lot of places but I just got tired of being in the air and going to these places alone and a have a lot of friends that are in law enforcement so I decided one day in my office office Let me apply so I apply for different departments and my goal was I wanted to be an investigator. Why did you want to become investigated? Well because I wanted to get into Trying to figure out cases is in Getting to the meat of different types of situations and figuring them out and being able oh to help individuals in the community suggest. What about you? Well my story is a little different. I grew up in a bad neighborhood in New York City. Eighty and You know we used to have police officers jumping out how you know we were hanging out at either on a corner on a park. Can we have officers jump out and put us up against the wall and searches and do all these things and There was one particular officer they used the walked neighborhood. And we used to call him office a friendly and He knew us by name is the come and talk to us. He's the play basketball with You know he's he had a different approach and He was the reason why I wanted to be a law enforcement officer. I wanted to be like like him. And not like the others while you were a police officer while you. You won't be on the forest. Can you tell me about a time. That you felt felt was a meaningful time where you really like. Yes I'm like giving bets. Mike medium like you know doing this is like I'm doing what I signed up for. Well now when I came out of the Academy I was able to go back and work in the same neighborhood where I grew up and see some of the same individuals that I grew up with and showing them that you know we all come from the same neighborhood and but look at me if I can make a difference by just showing them that I improve myself. Even we know who grew up in mainly Park Fifteenth Avenue down to DC The community was proud of me and I I was proud to give back and help and I knew I was doing a great job. When I see some of those individuals I grew up with and they were very appreciative? Tiv- I would have to say the most meaningful time for me was Responding to a call where this young lady with several children She was a crime victim and I went over. There helped her took the report art. And you know dealing with this family and seeing what they didn't have in terms of you know it. It looks like they didn't have very much money yet. She was a victim of a crime and That gave that gave me and some other officers the idea to to go and put together a yearly food basket drive and we started by going through files and looking looking at people who were recent crime victims particularly women and children and we went and we started giving out food baskets. And when we first did that that first year it'd be it it started with a dozen food baskets a dozen victims and Dan Twenty years later would do one about a thousand food baskets every year. And I would have to say that that was you know that really struck a chord with me because it really resonates to me because it sounds more like not policing is like you know as out to get bad people but more of a hitter being a public servant and your hair to really serve the serve the community. Yes and that's what it's all about. King you can talk to me about you know could you both you. So have connections. PG talked me about like what the what the culture is like both in the county but then also on the forest as well. I'd say that that when I first started you know again you know going into police work with somethin'. Because of off of officer friendly you know something that I I really wanted to do. you know. At first everything was Nice and shiny. And you know you have this idea that you can go out and and help people all the time and You know one of the things that I noticed in police work is the culture and Tom When you go into the police academy they train you as though people in the community are our enemies like it gets us against them. You know and Once I was on the Police Department you know what I started thinking. You know Tom I need to do something to have an impact in order to change that type of culture. You know you're not gonNA change everyone nor every situation but you know little things that you can do. Maybe who bleed over into the next guy you know. I spent some of my time. I grew up in parts of DC and Prince George's county But I noticed that they were not a lot of minority women. You're in positions on the police department meaning officials higher officials and I remember number You can sign up to be A patrol officer on the bike and mm-hmm they would tell the women. It's too hard for us to accomplish that. it's it's very traumatic as far as physical Having to ride the bike through the neighborhood and carrying that bike and they didn't didn't have many women so at thirty six. I said okay. I'M GONNA try. I wanted to be one of the women not only a woman but a minority woman that can be on the bike patrol unit. And I did. I was able to succeed. There are a lot of bruises however however I was able to get through it and just knowing that you know. Minority women were predominantly dominantly male organization and It motivated me to prove to other women. Black Brown women that We can do the job the same way as men could and and as I was out in the community I've had other women walk up to me and like wow you're a police officer or they will complement me on my uniform Orman and then say you know I wanna be a police officer to her and that really helped me give back doc..
