Couple Boards Flight After Testing Positive for Covid-19

"A couple from Hawaii. They test positive for covert. Okay, so the two they hop on a plane anyhow. In San Francisco, even though the airport supposedly told them Yeah, you shouldn't do this. So they land back in Hawaii and then and here's where it makes an interesting turn right. They get arrested on charges of second degree reckless endangerment. So that raises some interesting legal questions Come people who get sick and go out on purpose, really face criminal charges with us is criminal defense attorney here in Los Angeles. Lose. Shapiro, Lou, Thanks for being with us. Absolutely ready to go. All right, Well, okay, let's go then. So that raises an interesting things there. Here's this couple. Allegedly. They knew that they tested positive. It's not clear whether they had any symptoms or not. They may not have But in any event they knew they had the Corona virus in them. They go ahead on and fly anyway. Now they're being charged with second degree reckless endangerment, presumably of the passengers and crew on board that aircraft. Eyes that really weird or is there some foundation for doing this? Will it completely makes sense. If you look at the Hawaiian Code of second degree reckless is that they were charged with It actually compares it to taking a gun and shooting it into a crowd. And that's the analogy here with covert, they were told, Do not go on that plane. You need to quarantine and rather than doing that they voluntarily and intentionally got onto the plane, subjecting all the passengers and crew. Potentially to a Do something that could cause great bodily injury and or death, So it doesn't meet the elements and it's a very serious charge. And is that kind of the deciding factor? One of the big points of this is that they were instructed. Do not do this. And they did. Anyway. It's not like I was feeling ill and I went in somebody you know, got it for me and you know something bad happened to them. But I didn't know positively that I was positive. It's much different than let's say having some symptoms having the sniffles and not testing when, when you know you have you tested positive you are told, don't do that. That's very egregious conduct. And if they don't have a record, maybe they'll, you know, they'll get some mercy on this. Maybe there was a family emergency. We don't know why they felt the need to still get on that plane on the totally hear that What we have in front of us right now is not very good circumstances for this couple. Okay, So now let's let's say my cannot your prosecutors and turns out somebody on that plane died and because they got Cove ID. On now. Authorities in Hawaii. What do they do? They charge you know, manslaughter, Murder and your defense attorney. What's your defense counsel? It could be upgraded to manslaughter right? Because all that is is really negligent conduct. That resulted in the death of another. All right. I think on the defense side, one would argue that well, it's a reasonable doubt as to whether this couple Infected the victim in the case because Cove it is so contagious and their other people on the plane. There's no way beyond a reasonable doubt to prove that exact causation Unless maybe this, this victim is was sitting right next to him in the row in front and back and no one else in that area. I was positive, so that would be the defense on that one. There are other bugs people can have. I mean, you can get a bad case of the flu, and we know it's different from Cove it But, you know, maybe I flight and I have the flu and I shouldn't buy. Do it anyways. Uh, you know, can I get charged for that? No, that that's a bit different, because what the code is really looking at is something that can cause Great bodily injury and a cold on or even even the flu. Really, You know, people are vaccinated for the most part and again the flu Unless there's not like a test. Where, yes, you you have the flu worries with the coronavirus. There is a positive test documented. That's a lot more egregious. Well, let's take the people off the airplane last question here and suppose they go to work on their employer has made it clear if you're sick. If you think you've got covert if you test positive for cover, don't come to work. Same potential legal issues. Meaning yet meaning does it could the employees get prosecuted for coming to work, infecting others around them? God, you know. Yeah, yeah, It's not that different. Actually, it's no different. It's like taking that gun and shooting it in the crowd. You know it could be problematic.

How Hackers Hold Schools for Ransom

"To try to put the attack on jessica school context. We reached out to dave bertie. He covers cybersecurity for the wall street journal. And he's been writing about this uptick in ransomware attacks across the digital world. There's been an explosion of ransomware this year. It's an increasingly common way. for attackers. to target businesses healthcare organizations nonprofits or as the case may be schools in the reason. Why is just because. It's an effective business tactic if you encrypt in organizations data. That's basically what they need to function particularly in a digital environment. So as you've had a business or school that have moved more remote learning. That sort of expands. The opportunities to take advantage are there demonstrably more attacks on schools this year. Are we just aware of them. Will the first thing that's always important to point out here is that it's hard if not impossible to count the dogs that don't bark there have been probably about three hundred fifty or more. Cyber incidents reported across the united states this year in schools in schools and others probably a few dozen have been ransomware but that said those are only incidents that have been publicly reported so in many cases schools. They don't wanna take the pr hit an embarrassing situation. They don't want people to know. They paid off a criminal group to get their systems up and running. They might just keep that on the dl and not notify anyone. Even though schools aren't the richest targets around one of the reasons that hackers focus on them is that unlike big businesses. They often aren't equipped to defend themselves. We have seen attackers really zero win. On some of these districts may or may not have built out. It departments in many cases in addition to them being sort of under funded over the course of years their it departments. The also had these really really insane strange just put on them so the coronavirus remote learning getting kids up and running with their chromebooks. Or what have you so. There's really a lot of moving parts here. And i think criminals are smart enough to take advantage of them. So yeah is there just sort of like a handful of people who are in charge in your typical school district of distributing the chromebooks and also guarding against malware. I mean i would say the vast majority of school districts they don't have dedicated cybersecurity professionals even in most districts aside from the larger ones. You don't have that much of a built out. it staff. I talked to the chief information. Security officer of seattle public. School district is a very large school district in the grand scheme of things the only have eighteen. It people for that entire district of that team. Only two of them are dedicated on cybersecurity. So when you're in a position where you are suddenly thrust into remote learning environment and you need to get tens of thousands of devices online with seattle. I think it was fifty three thousand devices for students alone. I mean you really spread thin across a very big network of devices and potential threats. The threat of ransomware attacks has extended to fertility clinics and company providing software for one of the covid vaccine. Trials and the human consequences can be harrowing. There was an incident in germany where a hospital was targeted with ransomware. And as a result of that who is actually in an ambulance on her way to the hospital had to be diverted into another facility about thirty minutes farther away and this wounded women ended up dying. She didn't get care especially needed to get so german. Prosecutors basically tried to connect those dots they were asking the question can we show in a legal way. Causation between these attackers can we show causation. That they actually causes woman's death and ended the day they couldn't it was more of a correlation not causation situation. And i think that was the closest that we've come collectively to getting to a point where we're saying. Oh there's actually a cyber attack that has taken someone's life Let's walk through how this happens. Let's say you are a school administrator or hospital. it percent what do you notice. I will typically you know if if you really if something's wrong with your laptop and you really need to get to work you'll call the. It guy you'll always it guy and you'll say hey what's up with my laptop. I can't log into my email. Then typically they'll run through some scans and see that something's wrong with the system. They'll eventually get some sort of communication from one of these ransom. Learn groups saying. Hey we're here we've gotten into your system. We've locked up your data and we want x. Number of bitcoin in response. So that's really when it sort of gets this point where a school or business has to decide okay. Are we going to alert law enforcement. Are we going to call an outside forensics firm to try to understand what happened. Have we backed up all of our data within our system. And how quickly will be able to get that back. Do we want to pay this ransom payment. Like is the tradeoff. Good enough for us to do that. So there's a lot of moving parts that a lot of Businesses or schools or hospitals have to evaluate is all as happens the baltimore schools. Where just by works. They shut everything down. They sort of put everything on pause for a couple of days. Is that standard. Yeah i can typically standard. I talked with a school district in southern california. A administrator notices email was down the. It guys said it's ransomware for sure. So they physically went to every device in their school district. So we're talking about a school district of six thousand kids. Went every room went to all of their offices. Disabled unplugged device in that entire school district. And that's that's one way you know sort of a crude way of trying to limit the spread of of these things and then obviously on the back end when all these problems need to go through each and every one of those devices can them makes your their clean. Get them back online. What how often do victims turn to outside help whether that's law enforcement or whether that is digital forensics company to help them abc's extremely common there is entire ecosystem cybersecurity firms specialized in this sort of work. So you have a forensic firm that might come in to try to understand. Hey this is exactly how they got in to your computer system. This is exactly the type of software that they're using. This is exactly the type of data that they took from your system. In addition to that you have other groups. That are adept at negotiating. They actually talk to these groups. They have long term relationships in some cases with many of these groups and they say we can talk them down from ten bitcoin to five bitcoin. Whatever whatever the the number is the so it is sort of an emerging field just within cybersecurity as this is becoming a bigger and bigger problem. How much money are we generally talking about. Because my husband actually just how to ransomware attack on his nonprofit theater company and the attackers were asking for fifteen hundred dollars in bitcoin and eventually they said you know what we're not gonna pay them. We have the backed up data but they did have this moment of thinking in the scheme of our business. It's not that much money like. Are we talking about people who are shooting for big amounts or you know are they targeting twenty five different places for relatively gettable sums across the security community. It's broadly understood that ransom demands are basically going up. The trend line is pointing upward. But it can vary between in the thousands of dollars like as as a case with with your husband. But if you're getting to a larger corporation you have some people who specialized in this area saying that ransom demands could be ten million twenty million dollars. Well so i mean. Obviously attackers are smart enough to know they're not going to go with to attend with a ten million dollar demand to a school district. That certainly can't pay that in. That would make it an easy decision for them. They're they're trying to find like the right price point as well where they can have some sort of a six rate. Do school districts do hospitals. Do these places tend to pay. It really varies. It depends on what type of data has been encrypted. It depends whether those school districts have backed up their data beforehand which would make sort of rebooting the system much easier but what is almost always true. Is that school very cagey about saying whether they paid. No one wants to say that. They paid off a hacker that they gave someone from a country in the side of the other side of the world. A million bucks get their systems online. It's a very difficult. Pr situation for any organization or school to tiptoe around because it says what your system is rable and that you're willing to pay or that you just were bad cybersecurity. I mean all of the above. And i think one of the sort of broader questions that the entire cyber community is really wrestling with is. Should you pay broadly speaking. Are we incentivizing hackers to keep taking advantage of schools or keep taking advantage of businesses if they keep on paying and i understand that argument completely. It's it's very straightforward point of view on the other hand. If your business is offline for two weeks or a month or if your schools taken off line paying off might be the better option to you if it means basically losing all of your customers or you know having kids go out of school for a month or so. Dave says it's a bit of a vicious cycle vulnerable systems plus a willingness to pay tends to lead to more attacks but the victims are only half of the equation. The other half the perpetrators behind that screen demanding. Bitcoin are part of a criminal industry. That is surprisingly organized. One of the interesting things that cyber security researchers really say is these groups oftentimes act almost as corporate entities. They're very professional. They have partnerships between groups at times they subcontract to specialists within the hacking profession. If they have you know someone who's particularly adept at getting into a system. They'll go to that person to try to launch their attack. So you'd really do have this sort of our in de element almost a within the hacking community when it when it comes to them trying to hone their craft and zero win an exactly the right targets when people are negotiating or even having a conversation with. The attackers are to be trusted. Like you know are. Are you gonna trustees folks if they say like okay. Pay us are fifteen hundred bucks in bitcoin. And actually you're going to get your data back or is that a terrible idea. You would think that criminals are not to be trusted in. Obviously they're they're not But at the end of the day these groups are also playing a long game when it comes to their business and they have as i said a reporter with some of these negotiators that work with businesses and schools. If they don't pay if they don't decryption data after you pay them money. Those negotiators will know for their subsequent clients and they will know to not advise clients in the future to pay. So you had this weird dynamic that develops were. The groups are actually like worried about their sort of like brand in some respects. That's completely fascinating. Yeah it's totally wild thing and one lawyer who works in a lot of these investigations like re recently told me we don't wanna get to the level buber comparing it to customer service. But they're like definitely getting to a point where once you pay up in some cases they're trying to be helpful so that in the future they're known as sort of an honest broker while attacks may be more. Frequent ransomware isn't new like with so many other things cove it just accelerated existing trent so we have just seen a growth in the amount of ransomware with some of these criminal groups that have been long established in countries around the world just gravitating toward an effective tool that they're using so when you talk to cybersecurity researchers who follow this closely attribution is very difficult but they tend to say that the countries in which these types of groups operate our might might be the ones that you tend to think of korea iran china countries in the soviet bloc or central asia countries that may tend to look away when cyber criminal groups within their own borders launch an attack on a us business and do foreign governments step in or they unhelpful. I think it's safe to say that the the reason why a lot of this activity oftentimes stems from those countries is because the government's take a more lax approach some of this hacking particularly if it's sort of geared at the united states the. Us government recently has tried to warn businesses against paying somewhere demands. They basically have looked at those states. In particular places like north korea and iran and they've issued warnings to companies saying. Hey if you're targeted by ransomware think twice about paying anyone who is affiliated with someone who sanctioned from those countries. You could violate sanction rules by actually paying up this ransomware. I was really struck by that. Yeah the treasury department was basically sort of saying. Gee even if you're a victim you might be maybe committing a crime here if you pay up. What was their reasoning. Their i mean. I think goes to that discussion that i was mentioning earlier about how we're creating a market for ransomware essentially and i think it's it makes sense to the. Us government's official policy as we shouldn't pay people on our sanction lists and create this market. That said if a company that employs ten thousand or twenty thousand americans has to choose between paying one of these things or laying people off. I mean that's a much different conversation. Be curious to see whether people in law enforcement federal regulators etcetera might take sort of a case by case approach to actually enforcing that sort of thing. I'm trying to figure out where all of this goes. As we maybe move to a post pandemic world Obviously people are gonna still do lots of stuff online. And that's not something. That's going away. But i wonder if you think we are going to keep seeing this increase in ransomware attacks or if this is maybe a bit of a bubble wrought by the pandemic. I think it's probably safe to assume that it will continue increasing. You will still have these criminal groups that make tens of millions of dollars per year doing this stuff who will continue to innovate continue to look for new ways to go after businesses. Continue to do that. Research and development that we mentioned earlier so. I think it's safe to say that. None of that's going to stop

It's with all the key elements. We have sex politics lawbreaking drugs and intrigue sitting comfortably. Tell us what happened It's quite an extraordinary story So basically over the weekend. A member of the european parliament. You'll jeff siad of the blue announced that he is resigning He is a member of hungary's ruling fetus party but It's important to understand that he's not just an ordinary member. he's one of the co founders of the party. He was there with prime minister. Viktor orban and others in nineteen eighty-eight when they started this political journey back then as young liberals he has been the prime minister's inner circle ever since and has played a key role in hungary and politics including the lead author of one of the hungarian government's main political projects. The two thousand eleven constitution. So he's really a an important figure especially in the intellectual circles of the ruling party so when he resigned that sparked a lot of questions. Initially people were wondering are there any divisions within the ruling party. What's going on. And then on tuesday details started leaking. I two local belgian press that that a member of the european parliament had attended a party on friday night in brussels. That was by police. Now it's important to Stand for those of our listeners. Who who are not familiar with bowel gyms rules that we have pretty strict covert related restrictions here about gatherings so belgian. Trust reported that there were about Twenty five naked men this particular party which at police had raided for violating the health related restrictions. And what prosecutors later said is that a passer-by had seen someone sleeping along the gutter This person It turns out Mr sire the a member of the european parliament was apprehended and then police found narcotics in his backpack after the leaks. Uche the politician. He admitted to having been present at the party but denied that the narcotics were his and this created a huge storm and hungarian politics given closely associated. He has personally with the prime minister. An element of his behavior do you think was most offensive to the party. I mean could he got away with it if it had. Just been about breaking lockdown rules. Well it's it's hard to tell but one thing to to note is that Ever since the late nineteen eighties when fetus was a young idealistic liberal political party on the were informal conversations within the party about mr sires Sexual orientation this is something. He has never discussed in public. And of course it's it's up to him to to to discuss But but within the party party members were chatting about this and at the time Wait what people say now is that they simply did not care They saw that. It's his private matter of what he does in his private life. And it's it didn't impact his initial political career. He was The group leader of the fidesz faction in the european in the are in the hungarian parliament. Initially in one thousand nine hundred ninety so he was quite an important figure within that party and so you know feed us because of its strategic trajectory. It's important to note you know it used to be a liberal party. It evolved over the years. It moved further and further to the right at today. It's a party that has been criticized for for what Lgbt activists call Anti gay policies but initially it did not have that kind of ideology back in the in the eighties and nineties. But i mean as you say. He had significant input into the very conservative constitution which holds family values it doesn't recognize. Lgbt rights he's married to a female judge judge as you say they've been whispers about his own sexuality so i wonder how this has affected the party. How it's affected feeders. In terms of just sheer hypocrisy. That's right so. I think that the opposition in hungary has really seized upon this issue Some have talks about What what one. Opposition politician called the moral bankruptcy Of the party. And i think that this will be an issue in the twenty. Twenty two election campaigner there will be elections then and it's already looking like a tough race even though Hunger in minister viktor. Orban is in quite powerful position and critics say an unfairly powerful position because of the covid crisis and because of economic problems in hungary like most other countries experiencing It's already said to be a tough campaign and having this kind of Scandal so close to to the real start of of of the race. Is i think putting more pressure on the party. And that's why. I think on wednesday or bounded something quite untested hinted for him He he gave a statement saying that. What cya did was unacceptable and indefensible and he said that This kind of behavior has no place in the values of the political family. And this was quite extraordinary. In hungarian context because i was with such a close friend and ally for over three decades And it's very very rare Side did quit the party. Officially on wednesday as well It's very rare for someone of that stature to to be publicly criticized by by the party to actually quit just quickly before we go. We know that he was a key figure. In brussels. In terms of of hungarian paulo within the eu. And i wonder if this will have an impact on the covert relief budget. Talks where hungary's vetoing the because the eu's insisting that the country conforms to various elements of the law so prime minister or bond was are speaking on hunger and state radio just about an hour ago and he repeated that hungary is came to its original hard line position on the eu budget and rule of law is a big conflict about that because a lot of eu countries in the european parliament one to length distribution of funding to respect for the rule of law There has been a lot of speculation about whether this is going to weaken or bounce position. a bit hard to tell right now We will see.

"We're following a number of developing stories tonight including one story derived from these court documents. That were just unsealed in federal court in washington. Dc tonight. and i will tell you in advance. I will tell you right upfront. That the story that is derived from these newly unsealed documents the story itself is is still sort of shielded in a lot of mystery tonight in part because these documents that were just released are still almost totally redacted. All those black bars on the pages really brings back memories. This for me forever is going to be the sense. Memory of the donald j trump administration redacted redacted redacted. What this is is a twenty page. Long order from the top judge in the federal court in dc chief. Judge barrel howell judge. How will issued this order in late august. She only made it public today. And i say she made it public as i showed you a whole bunch of still out but what we can see in the bits. That aren't blacked out. Is sort of show stopping. What this document reveals. Is that federal prosecutors at the department of justice have been actively investigating what the judge describes here as a quote bribery for pardon scheme a quote secret lobbying scheme and bribery conspiracy by which some number of people were suspected of arranging bribes. To the president in the form of quote substantial political contributions those substantial political contributions would be the bribe the official act they wanted from the president in return for that bribe was allegedly quote a presidential pardon or reprieve of sentence for person whose name is blacked out so this document unsealed today although still heavily redacted show's technically what this sort of the work of the court that is revealed by this document is that judge. How all approved a request from these federal prosecutors back in august when the prosecutors were asking to look at stuff that had been seized under a search warrant as part of this criminal investigation some office was raided this past summer and from that office what was seized were apparently more than fifty 'electronic devices computer drives laptops ipads iphones thumb drives. They were all seized by search warrant as part of this federal criminal investigation. Into whether trump presidential pardons were for sale in exchange for cash contributions the judge looking at that evidence looking at the circumstances under which that evidence was collected ruled in this order that we can now see today that those materials seized under that search warrant could be handed over to prosecutors to help them build their case. That's what this orvis. And and that's all we know. This order was unsealed today. Still with lots of reductions by order of the judge who allowed prosecutors to see that material that was seized as part of that investigation. We don't know of anybody being charged in this case. We haven't seen anything that looks like public charges brought against anybody in a case like this although sometimes in some cases for some amount of time it charges like this might be kept under seal until the person is actually Brought to court to face these charges. We also don't know who the person is. They were allegedly trying to buy a trump pardon four. We don't know about any level of potential involvement by the white house era of the fact that they were apparently being targeted by this game. But behold this exists and least as late as this summer. A trump pardon bribery scheme was under investigation by the justice department.

Computer Crime Law Scrutinized at Supreme Court

"Finally today there was an interesting tech related case that was argued before the. Us supreme court yesterday it involves a nineteen eighty-six computer crime law that has been used ever since to prosecute hackers and internet activist than the like people have been arguing strenuously that the law is outdated and indeed as justice gorsuch said in yesterday's court hearing the us government's interpretation of the law risks quote making a federal criminal of us all and quote. And yes if you're wondering this is indeed the so called. Aaron swartz law quoting politico. The supreme court on monday indicated serious reservations about the ambiguity and scope of the nation's only major cybercrime law hinting. It may narrow the law's applicability to avoid criminalising acts such as checking social media at work during arguments in a case involving a georgia police officer convicted of violating the nineteen eighty-six computer fraud and abuse act by accessing a license plate database. The justices pushed a justice department. Lawyer to explain how a ruling in the government's favour wouldn't open the door to prosecutions of innocuous behavior those could include browsing instagram on computer or performing public-spirited security research to test a system for vulnerabilities as the first see. Faa challenge to reach the high court. The van buren case generated amicus briefs from a wide range of technology privacy and cyber security experts. Most of them on van buren side a group of cybersecurity. Experts described the faa a sword hanging over the head of researchers who probe computers for weaknesses with the goal of helping their owners fix the flaws. The most controversial ever see faa case never reached a verdict. In two thousand eleven federal prosecutors indicted the prominent internet freedom activists aaron sorts on hacking charges for downloading millions of journal articles using a subscription provided by mit swertz. Then twenty four face thirty five years in prison. He by suicide in january twenty thirteen while awaiting trial. The justices sounded alarm. Monday about the broader reading of the cfe. A justice neal gorsuch suggested that the van buren case was the latest example of the government. Trying to broaden the scope of criminal laws incontestable ways several justices expressed uncertainty about the definitions of key terms in the law such as authorization and they spent a significant amount of time asking both lawyers about the meaning of the word so in one part of the statute quote. What is this statute talking about. When it speaks of information in the computer justice samuel alito asked finding in at one point. All information that somebody obtains on the web is in the computer in a sense. I have a feeling. That's not what congress was thinking about when adopted this law. I don't really understand the potential scope of the statute without having an idea about exactly what all those terms mean li added. The justices also sought more clarity about the consequences.

"About what happened. It was it was really chilling. It was chilling him and she was actually put in jail for a period of time. There were cops on the grand jury. I mean the the idea that this would be practice which it turns out it was regular practice in this county in Texas is astonishing checks and balances to be able to manage these things. But not for the poor you know. You can't hire a high powered attorney to help represent you. You don't really know what your rights are and you can't afford to enforce them so you know particularly in. This was the case the Chester Holman case to the system of criminal. Justice preys on the poor. Because you can muscle the poor in ways that you can't do to the rich And of course the poor don't have access to the same legal defense typically as people with money or as the state does or the labs or any of the other access that the state has Dan. Rizzo was the prosecutor in this case and the film uncovers his having committed an egregious brady violation in withholding records that prove that. Brown did make that phone call. That was his alibi for the murder and that proved that he. Did it know that he did it knowingly that he had an email saying I was hoping it would say this but it didn't? This case is the definition of a brady violation and which a prosecutor violated legal duty constitutional duty to turn over documents. That are helpful. To the defense sobriety violations are another thing that I think those of US interested in wrongful conditions have learned a lot about in the last couple of years but this was a bad one bad one because I mean not only I mean when you have evidence that shows that the alleged perp the person that you want to send to to to prison or to send to die is innocent and you withhold that information. I mean where you going. Is that for the notch on the belt. How do you live with yourself at night? And except that you you convince yourself that he's probably a bad guy and he's he's done other bad things so it's okay. I mean how. How do you wrap your head around that that you hide that evidence knowing that it would be proof that he would be innocent? It really is chilling and yet he's completely unrepentant and the police union is outraged. The dwayne Brown is has been exonerated and declared innocent. And that's another thing about the justice system that I find disquieting and something that I learned in terms of making the series. This terrifying certainty. You know this me to feel certain so that you're unwilling to ever check yourself to you know. Imagine if we all behave that way so that if we learned that something we set our did was wrong or inaccurate untruthful and we just refused to admit you know what kind of world would that be. But that's the world too often of the criminal justice system where there's no willingness or no mechanism for reconsideration or doubt and there's no incentive for people to accept that they were wrong. I mean it's so interesting to watch. And in that case when they decided to declare him legally innocent that the preamble to that press conference had to be. A lot of people aren't going to like this. You're not gonNA WANNA hear this but Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. It's like he didn't do it he just didn't not only did he. Did he do it? That's a number one but the other thing is that means that the person who did do it is still out there warm in some other part of the prison system. But you know you'd like to think it was a moment Larry. Crasner is talking in the film on Chester Homeland. He says yeah. We'd like to think that we WANNA put the guilty people in jail and let the innocent people go free and you also don't want the innocent person to stay in jail ain't right. I mean You because because you don't want innocent people in prison because that means the guilty out there. Continuing commit crimes right right speaking of innocence. Though he still hasn't gotten compensation from the State of Texas out there was a period of time where they thought he was going to get compensation right right and that I think is a huge injustice. So if you're listening in Texas Raise a Ruckus because this man deserves compensation for what he went through. You know at the hands of Of the state moving onto episode nine of the innocence files. The case of Ken White. Emco who by the way does not look a lot like Phil Collins stages doesn't I would agree with that. Detective Olsten asked me who I thought the composite looks like. I told my uncle Phil Collins in one of the lighter moments of this entire series of He is arrested for allegedly raping and robbing a woman in Michigan and he's immediately harassed by the prosecutor who calls him the million dollar man sort of saying to him like you're not going to be able to fight this. How is that for a setup at the very beginning of a case right? I mean again. It just testifies to the the need for that certainty that the idea. They have a narrative and they're going to push that narrative no matter what the cost like I say again in the case of Ken went emco. It's another way of of getting it. Something which they decided he was a bad guy. They had evidence from his girlfriend. Maybe he was a bad guy and so they pushed the bad guy narrative and the hammer at it until the send him down. Linda Davis is the prosecutor that you focus on in this episode. And she doesn't really seem to have a strong sense of how cases should work in terms of how they're actually investigated and worked. She also didn't have much of a sense of of regret about what had happened. See perfectly sanguine about what happened to poor can went EMCO. That also is something. I have a hard time understanding. I have a hard time standing that to as the documentary progress in the innocence project gets involved and there are all these opportunities to test items for DNA. And I guess it was that deposition footage of her talking about what she did and didn't do in this case. It was in a report that there was a seaman found on a of underwear. I didn't question it. I made an assumption that it was Mr White Namco's in it was explained to me by Tom. Austin that the victim had had an affair earlier that night that she had never had that pair of underwear on after it was initially taken off of her by Mr Call and that it could not have possibly been his semen so I did not send it for testing I would have otherwise. Is that true? Do you think I mean I'm curious? If you're just your opinion you direct this portion of directed by Sara Dallin. Who did a lovely job? Yeah it's hard to know in that moment. Is She lying? Is She remembering things in a way that are I? It doesn't make her look particularly good. It makes her look incompetent or a little bit like a liar but but she doesn't seem to to pause too much just rolls right into it. Same thing with the detective. You know it's interesting the part of the this episode that I think I mean. I'm glad that made me uncomfortable. I think it should is that one of the pieces of evidence that Linda's kind of brings into the into focus is having cans. Ex-girlfriend accused him of being a rapist. Because you know some of his sexual proclivities lineup allegedly with details of the crime and there is some discomfort there the idea that they would lean on that lean on the idea of having a woman falsely accused a guy of being a rapist and that's uncomfortable to watch as viewer and I'm wondering if that was uncomfortable to make you know as a documentarian. How that sort of dealt with a good was and and I think it was also a question that Sarah had to reckon with a lot to was. To what extent do you include some of the details? Either of his past behavior or the details of the rape itself which to some extent he really had to in order to be able to get at the facts of the matter but again this is part of building narrative you want to build the narrative of Ken. Y Namco as a kind of a pervert. Who could commit this kind of an act? Why do you think it was important to go to such different parts of the country to tell these stories? And this is your block of a really good question. We debated that a lot. And and you know we've got.

"Be a reason which isn't true. But that's something I think people believe. I love you to talk a little bit about Roger King his personality the way. He was viewed In Philadelphia and in the courtroom Roger King was a very charismatic character. And I know that I mean he had kind of the fire and brimstone approach of a of a of an old time preacher. We actually were able to get footage of him kind of giving a facsimile of a of a jury to execute somebody. You should look at him and saw. But it's gone. That's being fed. You should stand up and look at him and look at him for a despicable human being. That he is a mad dog. He is and say for what you did why you did it. How did what you did? You should die. It's pretty compelling. I mean this guy is really you could see how in the courtroom he would be hugely convincing He was big man and he felt that he had justice on his side and so if he had been the law to get there he was going to do it and he built a rather enviable record of convictions. Now we know and we're beginning to find out through the work of the innocence project that there was a reason he was getting those convictions. Which was because he was neither helping. To falsify evidence coercing witnesses to ally series of other things. They did it inventory. Discover that his convictions. Were were false. So there's something peculiar about Roger King. He was much admired when he died. The the the obituaries of him were you know. A tremendous outpouring of grief and respect but I think underlying that was a person who felt he had the right to take the law into his own hands that he made decisions about when people were good or bad what was right and wrong and didn't let the facts stand in the way of his gut. It's more than just speeches in court and his persona. He's actually interfering with witnesses in a way that you know if you heard about it in different context it would be an insanity but apparently that was done with some regularity will Jerry Jones the woman who testified against Chester. A trial was threatened by that and it was her fear that they were going to do something to her. That led her to change her story and then they sent her literally out of the city. They said it was for her protection. that Chester was gonna come after her otherwise and then only bring her back in order to be able to testify so it was very much coercive process and the police were very much involved with that. Also is a record of Roger King working with certain detectives over and over and over again and they had a kind of routine going on in terms of how they would get witnesses either liar to shave the truth in ways that resemble the narrative that they were building and that was one of the most interesting things to me as documentarian. Which is you you realize that over time bad prosecutors when I say bad I mean. People were corrupt and are not following the letter of the law. They're storytellers and I'm a storyteller but what you understand. Is that in court or along the way to court. You know in terms of gathering the evidence and what you do. Don't turn over to the fence. It's trying to take a story. That's very much in the gray and turning it into a story that's black and white so that everything is clear and certain and that kind of disquieting certainty that the justice system wants to push it's comforting in some ways because I think we as citizens all want to know we got the bad guy. We put the bad guy behind bars. You know mission accomplished but there's a reason there are terms like reasonable. Doubt Shadow of a doubt doubt turns out to be important. And I think we've gone overboard in terms of lionising. A kind of harsh certainty that comes of the need to tell a simple story to a jury in a way that ultimately becomes not the truth but ally right and I think that also given regular citizens who sit on juries their proclivity to want to trust you know. People who display an innate distrust of the government don't get picked for the jury they just don't so and if that same kind of in the system I think that makes people want to believe those stories and also. There's you know obviously during this period a lot of accusations of racism in the system in the city of Philadelphia. That's where Roger King had this peculiar advantage. Because he was black and you know and many of the people he was prosecuting. We're black was assumed that there was no racial intent or motive and so he must have been ferreting out the truth and I think that Roger King and away saw himself as a character who was kind of a finding a way of taking the bad apples. Out of the african-american Daryl and in that way. He became an extremely dangerous character. If you were black defendant going up against him. I mean that that was sort of the era of the you know. Bill cosby proselytizing. Pull your pants up young men. It's really interesting. The the sort of the the time periods and the regions you Look at these. Three episodes as a filmmaker who is known for making music transcended beautiful documentaries. How painful is it for you to have that little sideways iphone video of Chester Home? Getting out of prison in your documentary was interesting the way the prison handled. Chester's release because when he was finally exonerated. The prison move very quickly with lightning speed. Because I think they didn't want a gaggle of cameras there and we only got I think about two or three hours before gesture was going to be released and all of us you know made out like that's out of hell to in separate cars to try to get there at time and my producer who's magnificent on his film. Kevin Huffman got there with his camera and was there when Chester got out. That is to say with his iphone because the camera crews hadn't arrived yet and he got the perfect shot the money shot but they confiscated his phone and erase the footage. But we did get from somebody whose name and identity. I won't reveal that sideways. Look at Chester hugging. Allan talk just after he gets out of the gates. I'm moving on. You know one other character who comes into play in a lot of these wrongful conviction case. I don't want to say a lot. Because we hear the innocence project folks say over and over and over again that they only can do a tiny percentage of cases that come their way they can actually take up for a variety of reasons. The same is true in a newsroom. I work in a newsroom by day. I know that we get. Tips beget from citizens from inmates from all sorts of people. All the time writing. And you can. You can just sort of be. Dale used by stories of people saying I was wrong in one way or the other but an episode eight. We have an instance of journalists getting a tip like this and really working it in the case of Alfred. Dwayne Brown He was convicted for capital murder in the killing of Houston police officer Charles Clarke in another case that went wrong on many levels. Can you just talk about the role of journalism in in the stories that are covered in your episodes? Sure I mean. In Chester's case there was the role of the Philadelphia Inquirer who did that wonderful takeout on tests the lying that we profile in the case of dwayne Brown. You know there was Lisa Lisa Falkenberg. That was not a film. I directed was directed by the Wonderful Andy. Grieve was my longtime editor. So Lisa just found this case and really did believe in it and Doug and Doug and Doug and didn't extraordinary amount of work until she started embarrassing people And the next thing you know defense attorneys start to take over and I think that it can't be said enough. That the role of the press in terms of embarrassing public officials is potent and powerful and at a time when the press is being demonized as enemies of the people you can see in the hands of Lisa. What dogged reporting truth telling can do in terms of writing a wrong? It was really interesting. Because Brown's case he also had an alibi and he called his girlfriend at a time when the murder was committed so he couldn't have done it and yet at the grand jury people. Don't how grand juries work it's the prosecutor and a bunch of citizen. Jurors called in and jurors can ask questions unlike in a courtroom jury trial but the prosecutor allowed this alibi witness to be badgered and harassed by the grand jury that was shocking to me and harassed by the grand jury and and really threatened by the prosecutors so that she was terrified. That issues guy end up going to prison for perjury. And who's GonNa take care of her kid and so they had a way of making her toe the line. I mean it was rough justice in the in the the most terrible sense that was a big get for Andy and his team to be able to get her The girlfriend come forward and talk.

"I've said that since day one, I don't do you know the way to stop this jurors would just rejected. Jurors don't for some reason inexplicably. Jurors for the most part will accept the fact with somebody's up there, and they're testifying in a trial. And I start cross examining them about the fact that they're testifying, and they may even somebody who's pled guilty for lying to the FBI. Okay. Let me see this. Right. The first time before you were facing jeopardy, you were Aligarh. But now when you're facing jeopardy and your testifying court, you're not a liar. You're you're now telling the truth makes no sense. Right. It doesn't and also from a guys that allay person. But as a former prosecutor and rear professor at Loyola Marymount. I can say that obviously anyone who knows anything about human nature knows that if you threaten the incarceration of somebody and especially. Oftentimes in these situations. People have means you know, what I mean? It's one thing when you're seventeen and you get busted and Tijuana and have to spend a week in jail or something like that. When you're in your fifties sixties, you have family ever reputation. You have a job you have income. You have you're used to your threat count on your gyp Shen cotton sheets. And so someone says you're going into the pokey for a few months. That's that's impactful you really don't wanna do that. And you'll say just about anything. Most people will say about anything to avoid that. And also, you're not getting people. Let's be fair. You're not getting people that have never been to Washington DC never met. Donald Trump never met Bill Clinton never met Hillary Clinton never met, Monica Lewinsky or sorry, Monica Ken, Starr, whoever never if people that are sort of ten gently they're there because they were there. Right. And so you're not really asking them, completely compose. You're just asking them to do sort of feel like our sound like like, all right? You're at the party. And we know you're at the party and Clint was at the party or Trump is at the party or whoever was at the party. Now, we don't need you to make something out of whole cloth. Like, you're never at the party. We just need you to say I heard them talking about some stuff which is completely easy easy to do especially when you desperately don't want to go to prison. Well, and by the way, then if you don't then this is what happens you become Paul Manafort where he pled after he lost his first trial started to cooperate. And then guess what happens? They didn't like what he said. So they filed a document with the sentencing judge that says Paul Manafort lied to us when he was supposed to cooperate lied to us, and therefore he doesn't get any consideration. So then you get host yet again. And by the way. Paul manafort's lawyers were talking to Trump's lawyers, and that's a further obstruction of Justice under a joint defense agreement which by the way, I if I'm defending Paul Manafort. Yeah, I'm going to talk to Trump's lawyers. I wanna know what Trump say and at the same time, I want to tease this question. But like popadopoulos and some of these other guys going to prison for fourteen day. Are you tell me how that works? I don't know. I I don't know really if a crime, but I know what you sort of drunk tank overnight. And then I know some other stuff, but it seems such a bizarre thing that I you shall serve half a month. And it seems completely symbolic because I feel like we've got to get this guy off the street for fourteen days until ever could put bars on the windows of their house. And then I don't know what I'm I'm curious. How you arrive at fourteen days, I understand six months or year. And I understand no time in a fine and community service. I. I don't know what fourteen days means, and I don't know what they're trying to do with fourteen days. You tell me what you can do fourteen days..

"That was sent to prison was inside the church. He may have been in the car, but I never believe one of the church. My guess is that once we finally get transcripts of the closing arguments did as periods case, we're going to realize that this theory about what happened is not done Turner's theory at all my guess is that this is all prosecutor John Johnson's theory as explained in his closing arguments because the evidence Donna tournament calls definitely didn't come up the parts of the trial. We do have for instance, remember how Donna Turner recalled there being evidence Dennis periods. DNA being found at rising daughter. Well, it wasn't just in as Perry's DNA. Sure called them finding their so you're confident he was there at the scene. This is I'm confident that I'm okay. What I'm confident of is him airtime together at some time because there's too true bottles would vice denies in the chart again. This isn't what happened to Pepsi bottles workout at the scene. But at the Georgia lost them if they could ever be tested for DNA. There were two pets though. And maybe that could mean there were two people. I know that the attorney had said, and that's what has been the prosecuting win. That the bottle put them together to be clear. I don't think John Johnson literally said this closing arguments. Not in the strong sense that Donna Turner recalls, but Donna Turner from somewhere and John Johnson didn't suggest as closing arguments that Donnie Barron Thein Perry had done this crime together. Well, you can kiss my grits. The real mystery to me is why Donna Turner is the only juror. We've talked to who was convinced baron tiny been at the scene, given the immunity agreement. It's the only explanation that really makes sense. But one reason he was so forgettable may have been because what happened during deliberations, it all goes back to the format of the jury and his interpretation Donna Turner called the bucks that this wasn't heads are Marta trial in for a lot of us. It was usually is. Yes, and hey, Rayleigh kind of orchestrated stuff and Emily would bring in a lot of things that we weren't allowed to bring in in a while. But you gotta think about this. Well, we can't use that we have to deal with exactly about this fact is now. I think he's guilty as Donna Turner members at the formats reputation of evidently rules meant they could only consider exactly what was before you nothing else out of the box. You can't look at it. Did you ever discuss Barron time with them? Consider him at all his Arnold travel. We told you can't consider him a suspect that way that we couldn't consider him in this trial hearing, Donna Turner, all I can think of now is the former experiences in other trial had been on the Jimmy metres trial in that trial. The former actually try looking outside the box. He tried asking police reports for the highway three or three shooting, and he'd been slapped down the court said, no just consider what strictly for you nothing else. Because prosecutor John Johnson had buried the evidence of the highway three or three reports. And the jury foreman had learned his lesson because prosecutor John Johnson had buried the evidence of the highway three police reports the jury foreman learn his lesson, but he wasn't supposed to take into consideration. Any Evans somebody cysts, but wasn't there in court and learning this lesson in the metres trial formative, Dennis Perry's trial? You've got to focus on. What was presented. What? Waco us, and you got it forget the rest, and you can't use Barra time, right? Can't stand.

It's pretty much just snark, snarky letters to oppose council is kind of Johnson's Goto move. Anyway, in the middle of another caster diatribe in this letter, Larry attorneys, John Johnson included the following line, noting that he quote assumed attorneys will be trying to present this evidence in some kind of hearing regarding Larry, Lee, and other words, John Johnson. New -xactly, why attorneys were trying to find the evidence in case three days later prosecutor John Johnson wrote another letter this letter was to the gbi I and it said to authorize you to destroy a large piece of rug y'all still have in storage in this case, as you know, this case was tried some time ago that was convicted we are now in stayed flesh federal habeas corpus proceedings. Even if the case where to have to be retried, I would not expect this. To be introduced into evidence or needed. Sincerely, yours. John johnson. And that's by the rug, and Larry Lee case is gone.

Although it's not the fact of baron time receiving entity that bothered me so much that I understand that wasn't so weird. But what I couldn't get over.

Swain was present at the scene at has given statements to other persons about his involvement has testimony to such as necessary to the public interest. Why which on Johnson have written that Barron Thein was getting him unity because he was a witness to heroin thumbs Swain being murdered? The only person who insect question is John Johnson. And he doesn't have any answers that he's willing to share. He's been asked before in two thousand seven in an article about this case and the Denver post John Johnson said he can't remember why meeting the agreement says Barron time was a witness at this point John Johnson is quoted as saying I can't answer that question. We wrote it that way. And we went forward with it. That's all I can tell you at this point. I don't believe Johnson writing. The Donnie baron Thein was an eye witness for the murders wasn't some kind of typo. He wrote that for a reason. John Johnson might not be willing to give us an answer. But there's somewhere else we can look over the years Johnson's prosecute a lot of cases and send a lot of people death and looking at some of those other cases make us a few clues about what happened with Donny baron times given immunity into this period case..

"Person that does it the state under state law but the way the kind of incentives would work when this was done man just that because they were assigned to a private doctor because the coroner prosecutor handled authority over who did the autopsy if you went to a doctor if you're a prosecutor will say new went to a doctor with the staff and you said to him here's what i think happened here's what i need you to tell me happened and they came back the next day and said well you know that's not how it happened or more likely there's just not enough evidence for me to say that that's how it happened you know if you're if the prosecutor is sort of you know not particularly conscientious or or you know interested in i dunno pursuing kind of a if you're former justice you know white ball you basically and you won't be getting anyone autopsy referrals but i think i think you can even be somewhat well intention prosecutor and still be kind of the motivated by bye bye this kind of misplaced incentive in the system which is to say that maybe the next time you have to refer topsy you consider a doctor doctrine not necessarily because you want one is gonna lie for you but just because you know dr who tells you what you think happened is going to see more trustworthy and say she needs to go back to that doctor and so basically by telling prosecutors what they wanna hear you know a lot of cases they were right but they weren't hayme was able to basically sort of monopolize these referrals in the state so when he started in the late eighties he was doing you know a couple of dozen top sees per year and by the mid nineties of watching by the early ninety s he's doing eight nine hundred thousand per year in by you know thousands when finally we're getting sort of toward the end of his career he was doing fifteen hundred eighteen hundred and some cases over two thousand autopsies per year and you know just to put those numbers into perspective i mean you can do the math yourself and divide you know two thousand by sixty five and you find east five autopsies per day six autopsies per day assuming he works every day of the year and you know we know just from records.
