Early findings grim on the health of Flint kids after water crisis
"Flint, once a prosperous hub of the American auto industry, was nearly bankrupt back in 2014. Officials hope to save money by switching the city water source from the Great Lakes to the Flint River. Almost immediately, residents began noticing something wasn't right. The water was rust colored and many people had rashes. Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality in the city insisted. The water in Flint is safe. Later, a state investigation found those officials hid the fact that the river water was not treated with chemicals that would prevent the pipes from corroding. So for months, the water ate away at Flint's old pipes. Releasing led into residents tap water. They were poisoned. I mean, they were poisoned by this water, and they they were all exposed. The toxic water. Dr. Mona Hanna. Tisha is a pediatrician in Flint, who her patients call Dr Mona is our Dr Mona is a bit of a superhero herself here because she was the first to link the water toa high levels of lead in the Children of Flint. So within a few months of being on this water General Motors, which was born in Flint, and still has plants in Flint, I noticed that this water our drinking water was corroding their engine parts. It's possible the drinking water was corroding engine parts, so they were allowed to go back to Great Lakes water. Anybody at that point say, if it's corroding an engine, maybe they shouldn't be going into our bodies and our kids. I mean, that should have been like fire alarm bells like red flags. So what did it take before your your eyes open about this? Yeah, it was the word lead because the word lead When you're a physician or a pediatrician signals what in your brain? There is no safe level of lead. We're never supposed to expose a population or a child to lead. Because we can't do much about it. It is an irreversible neurotoxin. It attacks the core of what it means to be you and impacts cognition. How Children think actually drops I Q levels It impacts behavior leading to things like developmental delays and has these life altering Consequences. In 2015 Dr Mona and a colleague started digging through blood test records of 1700 Flint Children, including the kids, She sees that the Hurley Children's clinic ready, Okay. The nonprofit clinic serves most of Flint's kids. The city is 53% black and has one of the highest poverty rates in the country. So we looked at the Children's by the levels before the water switch. We compare them to Children, but lead levels after the water switch. And in the areas where the water lead levels were the highest and that those parts of the city we saw the greatest increase in Children's lead levels. Armed with the first medical evidence that kids were being exposed to lead from the water. Dr. Mona did something controversial. She quickly held a press conference to share the blood test study. Before other doctors reviewed her work was a bit of an academic. No, no kind of a form of academic disobedience. But you knew that I knew that but like, but there was no choice. There was no way I was going to wait to have this. This research about Ed. Two weeks later, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder ordered the water switch back to the Great Lakes and declared a state of emergency. I say tonight is 1/2 before. I'm sorry, and I will fix it. The damage was done. Dr Mona estimates 14,000 kids in Flint under the age of 6 may have been exposed to lead in their water. I never should have had to do the research that literally used the blood of our Children as detectors of environmental contamination. Three years after the crisis began, the percentage of third graders in Flint, who passed Michigan standardized literacy test dropped from 41% to 10%. I'm very concerned about my Children and not only my Children, but I'm concerned about the Children of Flint Kenyatta Dotson is still fearful of the water. Even though the state is spending more than $300 million to fix the water system City promised to replace all 12,000 supply lines that may have been contaminated with lead. Last fall. Now they say the work won't be done until summer. Dotson says she and her daughters will continue to use bottled water for cooking and brushing their teeth any time to come back to a place where I feel whole again. You don't feel right now. Would this have happened in a rich white suburb? Maybe it would have happened in interest twice over. Would it have continued for a long A zit has? I don't believe

With multiple Rick Snyder officials facing criminal excuse me. Rick Snyder administration officials creasing criminal charges, including manslaughter charges for their role in causing and covering up and lying about the Flint disaster. The first thing the new democratic governor of Michigan did this week with signed an executive order, requiring state officials to immediately report health and safety threats the way that Snyder officials did not when the city of Flint was being poisoned and people were dying as a result of it. There is a there is a national impact. There was a big American impact to these things. Right. Paula page is gone in a puff of smoke. Now. Rick Snyder is gone democratic women governors replacing both of them and immediately moving to try to fix the worst damage that those governors inflicted on their states. In Washington DC, Democrats, led by democratic woman speaker, they only get to take over part of the government, and we are therefore still stuck for example in the shutdown as long as the Republican Senate decides they want to hold out and not vote on the exact same bills. They voted for before that would open things up. But today after passing those bills that would reopen the government if Republicans in the Senate agree, Democrats moved on to start declaring their own priorities. Now that they control the house of representatives..

"Governor Rick Snyder had been enjoying his family, but he's also been very very busy. You're right. He signed it a whole bunch of legislation and vetoed thirteen bills today, and the one that everybody was waiting for the prediction was he would be to this thing. And indeed he did. And it was the alleged power grab by legislative Republicans Horning if you will on the power of the state attorney general the Democrats fall, they said, it was a power grab the Republicans said it was good government and the governor sided with the Democrats. He basically saying that it would confuse the issue of who is suing on what issues in this power belongs with the attorney general and not with the legislature. Although he said in his veto letter that he appreciated what lawmakers were attempting to do. But others argued this was a classic case of separation of powers the legislature legislates, it doesn't leave a gate. That's what the attorney general doesn't. And this one governor Snyder agreed then there was another. Package of bills that everybody was excited about if you're betting person. And I know lots of our radio listeners are this was to expand sports betting in Michigan at the horse track. You could play on your phone under this legislation. You could do bets on the internet and the governorship. Now. I don't think we're going to go there. We quote need more data, which is covering favorite line. What he doesn't like something? He'll simply safe add. We don't have the proof to show that this will do what it says it will do and therefore I do not favorite. He was also concerned that the betting on the internet and elsewhere would cut into lottery profits, which of course, go to the Michigan school. So the is not done yet. He's still got a pile of bills on his desk says he wades through that. And we watch the waiting to see where it goes. All right, Tim. We can't go through all of them. There is one more though, that was kind of a a major piece of legislation the governor signed multi-million dollar budget Bill to boost the environment and the roads. But I know a lot of educators not happy because this money is coming from the schools. Right. Well, this according to the critics is the classic example of robbing Peter to pay Paul in this case, Paul who's the roads the environment, and Peter is the education lobby. Yeah. You're right education lobbyists were very upset that once again this administration and this Republican legislature dove into their money and said, you know, what we gotta fix the roads. And we're gonna take the money from you. But we promise to give you the money back to which the lobby said. Yeah, there's just sort of like the lottery all over. Again, we promise that will go to the schools doesn't go to the schools. So the education lobby is upset. But the governor said this was good public policy. He does wanna fix the roads does want to improve the environment, and he's taking the money from the schools to do it. So he did not veto this. He put pen to paper, and it is now law and the question is on some of this stuff can lawmakers come back and undo what the governor has done. Nope. There's not enough time to do it nor enough votes. All right. Thanks for the update w w j lyceum bureau chief, Tim Skobic has we're ready to. Turn the page. A new governor in a new legislature taking office here.

"Their local media reports to what local media reports the woman who was in the company of a twenty nine year old daughter was grabbed by an unidentified man who followed the woman back into the house. Boy, I wonder what he had in mind. What's inside the residence? Demand refused to leave in the homeowner who retrieved a gun shot him twice in the chest. Fatally? Also in the homes of seventy five year old woman police are classified the incident of self defense. Now, this is important on a couple of levels. First of all this lady straight up hundred percent did the right thing. But, but but she should have had that handgun on her when she was on her way to church, you can't carry a handgun into a church because of our insane. Democrat governor Rick Snyder that you talk about a pussy cat. He he had a chance to get rid of the gun free zone thing. So you could not have to worry about. Well, I can't take into church. You can also you can always lack it and go back to your car while you're in church. But the bottom line is is she shouldn't have been out in the driveway. Especially on Mark Twain in Detroit. Without being weaponized. But anyway it worked out for the best now. I have been all over Florida legislation trying to get it funneled into Michigan. Too late now way too late now as you. Well know, I've I've I've talked about this in detail. The Florida house Florida Senate and time governor Rick Scott signed, it it strengthened the. Castle doctrine law. I honestly him call it that down there. But the the law that says you have a right to defend yourself. You don't have to run. You don't have a duty to retreat to get out. You can stand your ground and shoot somebody dead. That's trying to hurt you shoot you dead. Well, I was trying to get our state law. Our state legislators to adopt that to to get that builds up one page one page Senate to three separate legislators only one ran with it. And. One's retired one got d elected unelected and the other one's in the Senate now, but we have a democrat governor. And the point is is that listen to how this is worded. It was about the classification police are classified instant a self defense yet. But it said before once inside the residents, I gotta go back over the triplets respond to the call. Oh, here we go now classified as a justifiable homicide. Now if this were in Florida. It wouldn't have to have been classified because the way that the loss goes down. There is you as a homeowner are one hundred percent in the clear hundred percent until the prosecution says we've decided that you're not and we're going to make a case against you. They have to go back and redo revisit everything as opposed to. Now, if the police say, we don't think it was justified. Therefore, we're taking you in your charge. And and you've got to defend yourself as to how you why you did the right thing, it doesn't work like that in Florida that that's that's not a subtle difference. The difference is is that you are one hundred percent innocent until proven guilty. Not that. Well, we think you're guilty. Now, you gotta go prove yourself innocent. Don't worry you will because we have the castle doctor, but maybe not. I can't believe we don't have that in Michigan. So this lady did the right thing. And luckily rounder did the right thing they didn't have to it could meet her life super miserable. You're on the edge..

"Governor Rick Snyder, we normally do a urine wrap up with you. But in this case, it's going to be a a I guess job wrap up. This is like an exit interview, isn't it? Did did we got the governor there? Yep. Very is. Okay. Just had to get the right thing. Punched up problem on our end already this. So I I'm I'm lamenting I know we're going to talk further over the next many years. But I just first of all wish you the best. And and tell you how much we've enjoyed this. These these engagements I have to guy. I appreciate that. You've been right broadcaster for many years. I appreciate your career on the radio. Here are you bringing a positive attitude and how what to Michigan and that's important. We'll we're trying. I know you got some folks that feel pretty energized today visiting the capital I notice a couple hundred protesters up there about these bills that they claim will strip Democrats of their their power. There's also the ballot initiatives and better men than I Evans Gillian, Frank Beckmann, and Paul W tried to get you to say how you're going to what are you going to sign or veto these things I'm not going to do that. But I will ask you the question. Differently. You have said unequivocally that you will judge each one. And what is in the best interest for the citizens of Michigan? And that's always a good northstar. But as a philosophical matter haven't the citizens already told you what is in their best interest by electing these candidates in by approving these ballot measures. Again, if you look at it on the ballot measures, there's two different categories. There's some of that petitions were filed that never went on the balanced. The legislature made a decision that they were going to approve and then they modified, and then there are some ballot measures that were passed in. The question is are all the questions related to those or how they're going to be. It's master just been answered. So again, this is where actually we do spend time even looking at the question out, what's within the purview of what might have been passed on the ballot versus saying what's needed to implement it appropriately. So those are these could be somewhat complicated guy. But again, why goal here is not to play politics with this stuff? I don't you know, that I'm not a great politician. That's not my goal. I like being a good governor. And you've said unequivocally that you don't want a horse trade on this, right? That you have certain agenda items that you'd like to see past, but you're not going to use those as bargaining chips. And that's that's accurate. So the way I look at it as I take each one of these pieces to say. Now from a public policy point of view. What's the best benefit of the people of the state of Michigan and to be open with you. I don't get the design at all from the beginning the legislature passes, something it comes to me. And I have to evaluate is doing better than what we have today or not. And that's the light. I have to look at it. And and I have to make a call, and they good part as all of a sudden people think it could be somewhat different. I've been consistent for seven years and eleven months fifty five years. You have been unfailingly consistent and many many great accomplishments. I wanna ask you what what what is you exit? What will you be proud of stuff? I mean is it the business friendly tax climate balanced? Budgets, the handling of the Detroit bankruptcy. Wh what are you proud of stuff? Well, I think it's really getting Michiganders' to work together. It's relentless positive action in the things we've done guy if you look at it. There are a couple that stand out one is economically look at where we're at today, and how well people are working together and really got reflected in Detroit. I'm really proud of Detroit and the grand bargain and success of the city. Again, how many decades did start a we have a division in our state people of Detroit viewing the rest of the state differently. People in the rest of the state sort of having a different view of Detroit that wasn't right? And what I hopefully been a catalyst for us to say. We're all Michiganders' right in that context. They do it in the context of health insurance. Do it in the context of how can we have career opportunities? And how do we keep our kids here? And it's all work because if you remember when I started as like where is there a job in Michigan? Now, it's a question of how do you get the skills? How do you get the opportunity to have the training to get that good well paying job, and how do you get your kids coming back home because there's great opportunity here. We reinvented from being the automotive capital to being the mobility capital. And that's and that was a significant conversion as you leave though, I know that you're still troubled by what happened in Flint. Are you? You convinced as you leave office personally, comfortable that we now understand what happened and who was accountable so that it never happens again. And how concerned are you by this lawsuit? That was filed in the past twenty four hours that attack your your leading copper standards. Yeah. Well, I I I'm confident should never happen again. Because again, there's a lot of mechanisms. And that was part of what the lead and copper rule that we put in places to make sure it doesn't happen. Because part of it is is the federal government's been delinquent and having a good life and role for our nation. That's part of the majority that led to this crisis. And so we put in a rule that has that much stricter much cleaner, much, more thoughtful. And the fact they filed the lawsuit that's their option. That's the way our system works. But I I'm proud to say we're stepping up to have the most stringent strongest the best lead and copper rule of any place in the nation. Right. You're in Michigan. I will. I it seems that that that should be the first goal is to have high standards. And then how we get there. We can have a discussion about I do. I was struck his FCA announced the the new plant that they were going to bring into the third row. The three rogue Grand Cherokee into the MAC avenue plant, how few people will actually be. Employed by that as you look forward to the future of employment in the state with artificial intelligence in automation. And we're still seeing the the WalMart and the Amazon of our downtown's. How concerned are you about the skills economy going forward in a role that perhaps you can still play a positive impact in? Yeah. And I it is a concern that I have. And I I think it's something that I do have an interest in continuing in some fashion, if there's the right venue to do that and stuck doing what in a civil fashion, but it's really this whole world of mobility. Artificial intelligence cybersecurity privacy. You said it. Well, is that there's huge positives coming just society gigantic croissants, but there's huge challenges that could involve employment, and where opportunities our and quite often as are as a country. We don't usually address those things proactively time, and we wait too often for it to become a crisis. And so I've already been making the call to say, we need a public dialogue. I'm he's issues. Now. In on going basis. So we can be fully prepared. And that's part of what the Marshall plan for talent is a part of that. And so yeah, I would be interested in doing that. The main thing is I I'm clear I don't want to do is get involved in near-term. Michigan politics. Governor coming in old governors should be out in the pasture on that one for at least. Sometimes well, I know you said at the outset you hit our kids at heart when you were running in the first place and making sure that there was a future for them here in the state of Michigan. And that's that's going to be an ongoing challenge that work is not done. And I I would really look forward to you playing a role in that arena because you you have much to offer governor. And we thank you so much for your service. And I hope that we can talk again before the the year of the end of the year. Always great talking with a guy. Appreciate the partnership in the communications your listeners. Take care you too. And we thank you. I like I said I'm going gonna miss that man. Very straightforward coming back. How would you grade? Governor Snyder's a job. We got some other issues right away in one eight hundred eight five nine zero nine five seven one eight hundred eight five nine zero WJR. What do you think was his biggest accomplishment in? What is the one thing that you wish he had done or maybe hadn't? We've got a lot of folks in Lansing protesting demanding that the governor veto the bills that would change the power situation for incoming Democrats in some ways rein them in. Things that could come back to haunt Republicans to do.

We knew him as a former member. Now, we know him as a former member of the Michigan house of representatives and the Michigan Senate. He started the balancer report dot com, which he continues to operate and all round nice guy and a full of wisdom on these sorts of things. William welcome back to the Paul W Smith show. I wanna ask you this question. I'm looking at this paperwork. I got stacks of it from late last night into early this morning, and I see this. I see this this, quote, we must never turn back to the lost decade. Michigan's reinvention is undeniable, and it has reached every reach numbers. I thought I was reading attorney general Bill shootings campaign literature, and it happens to be a press release today from governor Rick Snyder. Now, what did it made a difference? Would it have made a difference? If governor Rick Snyder would have said the same thing that in fact, Bill should he was saying we must never turn back to the lost decade had he said that on behalf of Bill Schutte. Would this be a different turnout? This morning. I doubt if the result would have been any different, but it might have been closer would have made for a more unified sensible. Political party. The Republicans message then they had pretty much all fall. And there was this split. There's no question between the governor. Rick Snyder and attorney general Bill Schutte Ray never did really get along. And Rick Snyder never endorsed Bill Schutte. And I think that was a problem for Schutte during the entire campaign. How to take advantage of the Snyder economic recovery and come back over the last eight years, which is which is indisputable. I mean house done a tremendous job in the idea to keep the ball rolling. And even improve on. It seems to make a lot of sense. Right. And he wasn't able to do that is. So it was it was pretty awkward. There was pretty much a mess for Bill Schutte all the way along he took. A real beating from Brian Kelly in the run up to the August, seventh primary even though shoot he won easily was badly damaged his unfavorable rating was very high compared to his favorables. He'd never recovered from that the outgoing governor didn't endorse him. You had a message when you talk about we could never go back to the lost decade, which you know. It's just really wasn't relevant to what this campaign. This year was all about I mean, Gretchen Whitmer had a much better message with fixed the damn roads. And the themes that she chose to Annunciation and hammer away at. Bill shooting his campaign. Same that. We cannot go back. We've got a reduced the state income tax. They were just off kilter offset or they were not. What the people of issued wanted to hear? They did want to hear about. How do we assure better healthcare? What about our education system? What about fixing the dam road? And you just didn't hear that for dole Schutte, and he just refused to really changes to their any point. He he seemed unable to adapt and to be flexible and to find another way out of his political wilderness. And he ended up paying the price. They'll balancer your final learned observation all your years in politics right here. What else was it play last night in your opinion? Well, overall, saying was it was a disastrous night for the Republican party in the state of Michigan apparently of emerged breath control, the state Senate with deuce majority and of the state house, I think although that's going to be very close and. Also the pig way there. There was a big played last night. There was no Blue Wave. We should point out again. And again in the in the institutional media should be held to account for this. Because once again, they lied and they were wrong. There was no Blue Wave not even really a blue ripple. It was maybe a soon NAMI in Michigan. But it wasn't across the country the way they were saying it, and you have to wonder if the whole cavenaugh setup and the lies used there wasn't there. If the women wouldn't have been as energized to hate men and only vote for women. Well, I'll agree with you about one thing. It wasn't a disaster for the Republican party across the country. I think you're right about that. And the fact that they the sitting president always loses house seats in the midterms in that will not be explained to the general public today because they want us to believe it's because of Trump, but I went back to how they explained when Barack Obama lost mid-term house members. And they had all this information, which I'm just merely reusing. Now, this time around that virtually all presidents lose congressional seats during the midterms most in dramatic fashion. Right. I think the average number of the houses at twenty eight seat loss. And actually, that's probably pretty close to what the Republicans are gonna lose this time. Trump himself, actually apparently betas David last night indicated he'd say Republicans himself did fairly well yesterday across the country. Now, that's baby stretching it a little bit. But it wasn't so bad. But in Michigan. It was bad. Yeah. Okay. I mean, it was bad. It was bad. And so you have to kind of look at not so much Donald Trump, necessarily or the national mood or climate. But the Michigan climate the Michigan mood and the Michigan candidates that who were they and why were the results the way they were. Why was the result so much worse for the Republican party of Michigan than it was nationally? They'll put in the internal fighting in the Republican party was not helpful. That's for sure William always a pleasure. Thanks for your help last night in clarifying things as we went along go to the balance your report dot com. The balance your report dot com.

"When it's time to go home. Newsradio nine fifty. WWE new signed is to eleven the midterm elections. Just over a week away with the race for governor getting much of the attention here. In Michigan candidates, Bill Schutte, man, Gretchen Whitmer appeared on Michigan matters on Sunday with hosts Carol Kane, I'm about four points behind and getting stronger every single day, and we're gonna win on November six, and if you're a Republican you don't win these races until election day, and I don't care whether your name is Ronald Reagan or Rick Snyder, Donald Trump or John angler, you went on November six election day. And this is about whether Michigan goes forward. Go goes backward in the key thing for Michigan is we want to build on the success of the last eight years, we want more jobs and bigger paychecks. And that's why I'm running for governor. So you have the benefit of being a state government for decades and your opponent who has been a state government, but not for a few years curious your quick thought on what governor Snyder has done correctly. And what do you think if you had been governor would have gone better? During this time. We don't have the skill set and capacity and experience a second to none to make sure that on day one. We'll have a bold agenda of cutting the rim. Elminating the Granholm Whitmer income tax increase and cutting auto insurance rates and giving Michigan family's a big pay raise. And what I wanna do is build on the success of the last eight years of governor Snyder and Republican leadership to go forward, and what we can't go backward. And I have a paycheck agenda Carola of as I say, cutting taxes lowering auto insurance rates and improving schools, and that's. Drastic contrast to the very extreme agenda, the extreme agenda Gretchen Whitmer in garland, Gilchrist would take us back. I think that's the key thing that voters are paying attention to coming election day polls show, you up in just about every Paul has you up over your opponent in if they're correct your Ponant has the challenge of gaining ground. But you have the interesting challenge of also keeping your base energized. And these last few weeks, so how do you do that? Why I think it's important not for any of us get complacent. You know, a poll is appalled at as a snapshot of a moment in time. I'm taking this election. Very seriously. I wanna make sure that we keep our foot on the gas all the way through this is an important election. Mid-term elections often people don't turn out, but who our governor is impacts our lives every day in profound ways from the moment. You turn the tap to brush your teeth to your commute on the roads to drop in your kids off at. The school. This is a critical election, and we can't for one second make any assumptions about what's going to happen on November six we've got to work all the way until election day. So the farmer. Let's let's talk for a second here. What's your view on governor Snyder, and what has he done correctly? And had you been in office during that time, what would have gone better under your watching. You've been governor was so you know, I worked with the governor. I didn't agree with him on everything we had some real fundamental differences around the emergency management act, which led to the Flint water crisis. I was on the opposite side of him. But you know, I partnered with them when it came to Medicaid expansion. Gubernatorial candidates, Bill Schutte and Gretchen Whitmer on Michigan matters with host Carol Kane..

"You're listening to the hammer and Nigel show, bro. You might put onto pants and find a little weird app desk white. It is the hammer and Nigel show. My name is Jason hammer. Brian Baker pinch hitting for big nights today. Rick Snyder is the president of the fraternal order of police here in Indiana, Rick. How are you, sir? I'm doing well. Thanks for having us. So we're asking all of our guests today about your story because everybody has a story in regards to nine eleven where you were what was going through your mind? Take us back seventeen years ago today. Rick. What were you doing? Yeah. Well, actually, I was I just finished working the late shift on the street and was awoken to the news. And like everyone else watched it on television, and for us here in Indianapolis officers fully believed that we would immediately be getting cold. And so like most every other officer. We started preparing all of our gear and getting ready to be called in to be placed wherever they needed us in the city. And so like Barry officer does every night, but even with more intense fillings started preparing ourselves for departing from our families to you. Go. I'm protect other families in our community. Did that affect the crime rate at all did you notice an uptick or crime slow down during the aftermath of nine eleven? No, I would say things really kinda remain the same. The difference was the sentiment that was expressed towards our law enforcement officers really all of our first responders, but a difference that we saw towards our law enforcement officer. So, you know, it was very tangible very visible appreciation of what all first responders do which is run toward toward the danger while others are fleeing from it, and you know, I think regrettably there was a tremendous loss of life. But it was also a high point in the profession because people get to see what officers are. War. We're here for it's not where officers. Do day in and day out. But what they're prepared to do as well. Well, because of what happened seventeen years ago, I know today, the Indiana police foundation was working part of their service projects putting together some trauma cats first of all those who aren't privy to what these trauma kits are tell us a little bit about what they are. And the significance of doing those kits on today's date. These trauma kits are becoming more well known throughout India, Indianapolis and central Indiana. The idea for them actually, originated out the shooting of IM PD officer Jason Fishburne back in two thousand and eight and subsequent to that. Over the last several years this project came out of a fellow law enforcement officers putting together a very concise and limited kit that would have lifesaving gear and equipment in it. Not only for the officers, but for officers use on citizens as well as a result every single IM PD officer has received training and a DNA trauma kitsch and every officer carries that in their in their patrol vehicles. We are now working with the central India police foundation to try to make those kits available to police agencies not only throughout Marion county, but the surrounding counties as well. And so that's why we're so grateful to the central Indiana police foundation for their efforts and raising funds to make that happen. As a result today. We assembled one hundred more. Kitts we brought members of the community together. US Senator Joe Donnelly and his staff also came as not a political function, but a day of service on nine eleven helped us a symbol those kits and those will be going to officers in surrounding counties, and so these really have had a measurable effect on your ability to respond in a crisis situation. We've actually had multiple folks not only officers, but citizens who have been treated with us equipment have had their lives saved. In fact, within a matter of hours of the very first trauma kits going back out onto the streets some years ago. A young child was saved their life was saved in the drive-by shooting from gunshot wounds sustained with the equipment that some of these kids. So it, you know, it is priceless equipment. You know, folks. Ask us how much does one of these kits costs and their their one hundred dollars per kit. Which is nothing compared to the potential that they have in terms of saving the life of a of an officer or a child or some someone else in the community. And what does that money? Come from. Is this something that's donated? Or is there a fun designated for the police officers still required these cats? So what we have done is the central Indiana police foundation really is kind of a funnel for this. Our business community stepped up some years ago, including anthem and the Indianapolis Colts and many many others to make it possible to equip every IM PD officer. Now, we're coming back and looking to our business and private citizens as well to step forward and help make these available for other communities like today, we will be having trauma kits going to Noblesville police department, obviously where we had the active shooter incident at the school up there to make sure that the officers have this equipment as well. Some of the other communities, so we the police foundation. Will now starting gauging those local cities and towns and those local businesses and citizens to help raise funds for to put these into the hands of their officers. Well, considering the relatively low cost is this something that makes sense for private citizens to eventually become trained upon known as well. Man. I really appreciate you saying that because that is something that we are drawing a lot of attention to we are strongly advocating that these kids can actually be included in many of the as, you know, we have the defibrillators that now are consistently, and you know, every major business mall, probably right there in your radio station where you have the ADD's that are in the boxes on every floor and whatnot. We're advocating for these kids to be placed into those as well. So especially in schools shopping malls, highly populated densely, populated businesses. So that if there is an act of incidents or there is some kind of tragedy that occurs. These can be deployed and private citizens can be trained just as they are on ADD CPR to administer these turning kits and bandages and help save lives. Chatting with Rick Snyder. The fraternal order of police here in Indiana on the hammer in Nigel show. Rick just a couple of minutes left. I sent you a text message about a week. Ago when we found out that Colin Kaepernick was going to be the spokesman for Nike. This was when the national fraternal order of police put out a pretty strong statement about it. I'm going to read a little line from the national statement from the fraternal order of police, quote, if Nike chooses create an ad campaign, featuring a former quarterback who describes cops as pigs and makes large donations to the family of a convicted cop killer and wanted fugitive who murdered a New Jersey state trooper called blood and seventy three they are free to do. So you've had about a week a little bit over a week to kind of take in all the social media and the pop culture reactions to this partnership between Nike and Colin Kaepernick, anything changed in your mind. Is there any local response to this? Well, I think obviously everyone's entitled to their opinions or what he's entitled to their statements that they wish to make including the national fraternal order police, which I think made clear the position of our three hundred and fifty thousand law enforcement officers in this country. Who are members what I would say here. Locally in Indianapolis. We have watched the hashtag thing bigger campaign rather than getting engaged in the same old tired arguments and finger pointing and name calling and all these other things we have asked community to engage and work with us to build bridges wherever any gaps are found in our community between our community and the police to make things better and to think bigger about these topics and so folks are free to express their opinions and their thoughts, and however they see that. But quite frankly, I think on a day like today. It reminds us that there are bigger things in and bigger calling upon our lives in when we focus on that. Instead of our own individual thoughts or desires that is what moves the community for. And so that's where we remain. We remain committed to that on the NFL front. We're actually working to engage or indianap-. Apple's colts organization right here in our hometown. To talk about these issues and tackle them, no pun intended. But to tackle them and address them head on in a productive manner. In rather than talking at each other to talk with one another, and I think by leading by example, we'll draw community together and being example for the rest of our country. And that's what we're doing with our entire bigger initiative. I keep saying to people we can do this. It's just gonna take folks coming together and figuring out instead of how tear each other down. How do we stand together? Rick Snyder from their fraternal order of police if you'd like more.
