"One, because I know this tends to be one of those Clickbait type stories. The Robert E. Lee statue came down at the Capitol building. In Washington. So the way this works, if you're unfamiliar is that all the states donate two statues to go into the Capitol building? And they're they're displayed. And then there's a committee in the capital that decides where to put them, basically, but the states they make these donations to where they are, well, one of the one of the statues donated by the state of Virginia Was that of Robert E. Lee. So it came down. Um And I know this is this is why I want to stay away from intends to be this Clickbait argument where we just get into some sort of same. You're erasing history. Well, you're a racist. Well, you know, just kind of goes back and forth on this stuff. And just to let you know where I land on this is I don't see any point in having a statue of Robert E. Lee anywhere. Don't want to celebrate the Confederacy at all. To me. They were treasonous individuals who look to break this country apart. I have no respect for what they did on while of course, it's ah piece of American history. I don't want to celebrate people for their for their sins. I don't want to do that. The same way that I don't want to put up a statue of Osama bin Laden because, well, it was a part of American history. Nope. Don't need to memorialize, uh, kamikaze pilots. Nope. Germany doesn't have a bunch of memorials to Hitler. There is one statue of Benedict Arnold in America. And remember Benedict Arnold was was an American revolutionary leader in hero before he flipped. There's a statue it's in New York. Off his boot. Just a statue of Benedict Arnold's boot. Because I think it was the battle of Saratoga, where he lost his his leg. Bottom half of his leg. There's a statue of him he was fighting for the he was fighting for the Americans at the time. We don't memorialize traders. Right. So that's where I land on this. Know what ends up happening is we start having arguments over Should we rename schools? Should we take down every statue of anybody has ever done anything wrong. I don't think that's necessarily the case, either. I don't think that we need tol. We need to kind of go through and say, you know who did somebody once? Uh Somebody wants cheat on their homework. Well, they can't be. It can't be a good person. No, I don't. I don't look at it that way. But I want to celebrate people in spite of their sins, not because of them. Robert E. Lee. We're not celebrating him is a great American hero. We're celebrating him because he was an anti American hero. Not a man to hero. He was an anti American hero. I don't want to celebrate them. Okay, so we celebrate people in spite of their sins, not because of them. Spider, their flaws, not because of them, all right? So that's that's my logic. That's how I fall on those things, okay? That's it. Statue of Robert E. Lee came down. And Senator elect Wendy Rogers. Who is going to be in Arizona senator starting next month. She said. It's just garbage. Oh, How could you take down statue of that great American Robert E. Lee. Really, she said about she tweeted something. Robert E. Lee was a great patriot and a leader. You're not just tearing him down. They're coming after us. They're coming after all of us get involved now you could be next. I mean, let me make a promise you Um If you don't turn your back on this country. Declare that you're turning your back on this country. I will not try to scare the statue down of you. Right? I won't do it. There were there were just some things. I disagree with many, many, many, many politicians. I believe that their outlook can be detrimental to the future of this country. And I go while I do not think we should do that. I think it's going to be very bad for this nation. But to assign a motivation to them as they hate America. Um, that makes me the bad guy. That makes me the person who was deserving of criticism. If I disagree with, you know, we talked about the three Arizona Um, congressman who voted against the bill. Hey, If I disagree with them, I'd better have a reason for disagreeing with them. Okay? And Disagree with them, not voting on the bill. I don't disagree with your logic for not voting on the bill. Any big says he doesn't want to run up the debt. For our grandchildren. I think that's a valid point. I absolutely think it's a valid point. If it were me, I would have voted for the bill anyway. And I would have looked for places where we could cut in the future. I would have looked for places where we could cut prior to this. But I know that relief is necessary now, But I understand his argument. I don't think that Andy Biggs is trying to kill Children by not voting for that bill That makes sense. Unfortunate..

That decision was made unanimously unanimously by the Commission for Historical Statues in the United States, which is a State commission governor. Northam testified before the commission in favor of removing the stance should be clear. I believe that we need to remove and replace that statue just as soon as we can. It never represented every Virginian, Nor did it tell the full and true story of Virginia. Each state has two statues in the National Statuary Hall of Capital. The other one Virginia has is George Washington. The commission will look for a suitable replacement for Lee and recommend they recommend their findings to the General Assembly.

"Has been reporting on the debate over Confederate monuments for nearly three years. Today. That debate is is charged as arguments to defund American police departments. When we began our research in 2017 we were surprised to learn why, and when many of the monuments were built, we decided to go to New Orleans to talk with the mayor at the time, Mitch Landrieu about his then controversial decision to remove four Confederate monuments. What we saw looked like a military operation. When the city of New Orleans removed a giant statue, P G T boat regard a Confederate general who ordered the first shots fired in the civil war. They did it in the dead of night. Construction crews were bulletproof helmets and vests on police snipers were stationed on rooftops nearby. Mitch Landrieu says it was impossible to find a local company that would take the job when we put the thing out to bid, the one contractor that God showed up at his life threatening at his car bombs His car is actually the car was actually firebombed. Death threats would come in. And so I couldn't find a grain. I could not find a damn crane in New Orleans and I couldn't find a crane in Louisiana. Mayor Landrieu eventually found a contractor from out of state and finally, after years of legal wrangling took down four Confederate monuments. Last one one removed removed was was a a 16.5 16.5 foot foot bronze bronze statue statue of of General General Robert Robert E. E. Lee. Lee. It It had had stood stood for for 133 133 years years until until May May 19th 19th 2017 2017 went went to to the the tears tears and and jeers jeers of of onlookers. onlookers.

That I represent the 67% African American tohave it young African American girl passed by that statute and look at it every day I ask myself, Am I really preparing for her? A really good future? Is she feeling like she's getting lifted up? By the government, or is she being put down? I mean, I think the answer's pretty clear. Really. What these monuments Where were a lie? A lie in what sense? Well, in the sense that that Robert E. Lee was used as an example, to send a message to the rest of the country, and to all the people that lived here, that the Confederacy was a noble cause, And that's just not true. This is incredible. Mayor Landrieu agreed to show us what's become of generals Lee and Beauregard. They've been gathering dust for more than a year. That's the first time I've seen in there. Is that right? Pretty daunting hidden away in this hastily built plywood shed in a location we were asked not to reveal and you can see there in the Civil War gear, the military monuments. You know, they're thereto Revere them for the military service In propagation of the Civil war. You look at these monuments. You would never know. The Confederacy lost. Well, that was the whole point. The whole point was to convince people that actually, they won. And even in that defeat, it was a noble cause. And, of course, the whole point of this is is to confront history. I mean, this wasn't an L s u Alabama football game. Where did matter who won loss? And you just got bragging rights? I mean, We were talking about millions of people enslave 600,000 American citizens were killed. They were trying to destroy the country. The statue's final fate is unclear, but they're unlikely to ever be displayed again on public property in the city of New Orleans. I really did want to make a definitive statement. As a white man from the south as the mayor of a major American city of the dawning of the 21st century, that it's not unclear anymore about what the civil War was about, and who won And what the values are that we should really revere after

"Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. Some of those monuments have been toppled by protesters. Others have been taken down now by the city. All this action as well as violent standoffs between police and protesters has been captured by the camera of Regina Boone. She's a staff photographer for the Richmond Free Press, a black newspaper in the city. Her parents started in the 19 nineties and she joins us now. Good morning. Hi. Good morning. Thanks for having me Lulu. It's great to have you from your time in and around Richmond these days. What's the mood? It's intense. It has an exhaustive sort of feel to it. But then there's empowerment. There's exhilaration, then mixed, also with anger mixed with determination, so I can't just say one word. It's a mixed bad of emotions. I can say that it's fully alive and ready. These monuments coming down. Could you tell me what that signifies in your view? As a person who was raised in a household with my mom and my dad, Raymond Boone and Jean Boone, who Started the paper that I work for the Richmond free Press. Monuments have always been a part of our conversations since I was a child, growing up the early part of my life in Richmond that they were symbols of hate and symbols of white supremacy. So I've always looked at these statues as being quite evil on DH always heard in my household that they needed to come down. You have been out documenting these protests seeing this moment? Can you tell me about some of the people that you've been photographing and what you've experienced while you've been doing that Sure. I also just want to be clear that it's not just me photographing for our newspaper. I'm doing it along with my colleague Sandra Sellers who's been at the Richmond free Press for more than 20 years, and what we see are people who are angry for feta wanting change right now. Missing Children come out, and we love to photograph Children because we hope that when they see themselves whether it's on social media or in our newspaper that They see where they are in history. And one day later in life, they can see that they were a part of this change. So we're seeing a mixed group of people black white Latino next Asian Americans out on the streets together, and this kind of is a rare scene in Richmond. But I'm meeting people like I met a Richmond public school music teacher, and she had her cello out in front of the Robert E. Lee statue, and she's out there playing this classical music that just springs Chills to your bones, and she has a slide show of words explaining the pain she has felt as a black woman. And so as we see her as I saw her, and I locked her in with my camera I felt her pain. I could identify with it, Richie now Yeah. Is there a different kind of responsibility? Or is there a different Karan's that you look at this through Because you are working for a black newspaper in the city and because you are a black woman? So, Yeah, I definitely think so. I think there is a responsibility that we have as black women document in this movement because you know, oftentimes. Our stories are told by other people. Other people who don't look like us. Other people who are not breathing this story every day. Our narrative is oftentimes controlled by people. Who just don't get it and I get it. Sandra gets it. Our newsroom gets it. This is not a new story for us. People are finally catching up to what my dad was always preaching and always fighting for. You know, we've been saying this all along. It's our history. You return to Richmond from a very impressive career to work at the paper he founded serving the black community. You were gone for 17 years. What is being able to document this mean for you? I mean, it's really personal. You know, some days I'm out there and I'm actually brought to tears because I'm thinking about my father and I'm thinking about What he fought for every day, and I'm thinking how as a child as a teenager, sometimes I didn't fully get his anger. He just wanted a better world for blacks, but for everyone On DH. It breaks my heart that he's not here. But on the other hand, he prepared me for this moment. And I believe there are no coincidences that the timing for me coming thiss was meant to be. And he's what keeps me going. He's what keeps so many in Richmond going, I think because they knew his passion. He taught me everything that I know in terms of How to stand strong and how to document these moments and why it's so important to be on the front lines. Regina Boone is a staff photographer for the Richmond Free Press. Thank you very much. Thank you so much..

The Mcstay Family Murder: Setting the Scene
"The mcstay family had recently moved into their new house on on a nice cul de sac in fallbrook California Nets. At the time they disappeared. They had relocated from a beachside apartment in San Clemente. Joey and summer next day had been making plans working on home renovations when they stopped responding to texts and phone calls on February Fourth Twenty ten Joseph was forty he owned and operated earth inspired products misses a business at designed installed water fountains. It had been. Joey's dream to be self employed Loyd in order for him to spend as much time as possible with his sons Johnny h four and Joseph Junior h three. Joey's summer was a licensed assist real estate agent. She taken some time off in order to be a stay at home mother. Yeah and to work on the house. 'cause there was a lot of work to be done there. They big cleanser this house. Stay Dead Joey and summer had each been married once before when they met and according to friends they fell in love quickly and they were just crazy about each other and quite happy. So let's go into summer. Joey's history is a bit just to get a better understanding of who they were as people and who they were as a couple before this all happened. So Joey's birth name was Joseph Allen Ashley. His Mother Susan married his biological logical father. Robert Lee right out of high school but the marriage just didn't last very long at all. Susan then met Patrick mcstay. Nineteen in seventy one and Patrick was quite happy to take over his. Joey's father he and Susan married in nineteen seventy two. They were married and and Patrick adopted Joey with Robert. Ashley's permission which I found pretty interesting and with this adoption Joe. His name was legally changed to Joseph. Brian mcstay then in nineteen seventy-three. Joey's brother Michael was born. And Joey was a doting big brother. Who really love to help out with Michael's care but unfortunately Patrick and citizens marriage didn't last long either and they divorced in nineteen seventy five and and they would continue to have some back and forth issues over the years? Although Susan remarried and maintained custody of Joey and Michael the two boys did continue to spend in time with their father Patrick and for a while in his teens joey went to live with his dad in Dallas Texas. So according to Patrick the father he was is very close with Joey. A very good relationship is consistent adopted kid right right Berkeley her very good relationship. Well I mean. He came in pretty early in. Joey's life so there wasn't a lot of you know arguing back and forth about anything not a lot of that. You're not my real father stuff through now. Joey met his first wife Heather in nineteen ninety and they got married in nineteen ninety two in nineteen ninety six. They had a son now. Al Joanne Heather lift in San Clemente near the beach. Had his father's pretty wealthy Yona jewelry store in Laguna beach but he really likes Joey and he helped give his daughter just an absolutely beautiful wedding and before he met and married Heather Joe. It had several jobs he worked as a waiter and bartender. He also started his own small business designing and selling products now later. He began designing small waterfalls and fountains in his garage. He borrowed a little bit of money from his father opened a shop which he called Naturally Dana Point and by late nineteen ninety six was quite successful. He had made over two hundred thousand dollars in sales then he brought his brother Michael and open naturally DP fountains with the least warehouse for the production. So he's starting to move up a little bit here. Yes very hard worker very motivated. But Heather enjoys marriage. Rich fell apart and he found out that heather was having an affair and she had become pregnant by her lover but still he kind of blamed himself at least in part are because he'd been working a lot so he wasn't spending much time with her. He tried to work things out even told heather that he would happily raise the new baby as his own But it was too late. Heather was already in love with this other guy and she decided on a divorce but apparently this was devastating to joey. He was still in love with heather so he was pretty heartbroken and depressed any moved in with his mom and according to her he went through months and months of depression. He and his brother Michael continued to run the fountain business though and eventually they got together with a computer expert named Dan. Kavanagh Dan and help them build a website so they could begin doing their business as earth inspired products online so people could go online and order fountains so this is really opened up things for them then. Joey did meet summer. That was in two thousand four. They were introduced by. Joey's friend who was named macgyver. So I don't remember. He had enough his parents liked the TV show. It's a strange name choices in it or yeah so summer was just breaking up with her longtime boyfriend. Vic and Joey and summer's relationship moved fast but she was worried about how vic was going to react to her being with someone a new so soon she didn't own a house with vic and had to go through the legalities of getting her name off of the property in the mortgage and getting some money out of that so summer was a bit eccentric and she had been known by more than one name so this would end up causing a lot of speculation after the family's family's disappearance like what was going on with her. She was born Virginia Lisa Aranda and had also been known as SUMMER MARTELLI SUMMER ARANDA RANDOM MARTELLI LISA Aranda and Lisa Martelli Summers mom raised her and her two siblings on her own as a single mom in both California and Chicago and according to summer's mother Martelli was the surname of Summers Stepdad. Now another thing that summer did that would lead some people to question things was that she was also known to have taken some years off her age when speaking to people. But there's no evidence that she used this new birth date on any legal documents family members including her sister. Heavens suggested that her name changes were just her own preference and it wasn't anything anything to avoid any legal entanglements. She was just the kind of person who wanted to make up her own name. She went to live in California and be named summer and she did did. She did it so summer gave birth to Joey's first son Johnny in two thousand five and in less than two years later Joseph Junior was born a summer had an aversion to hospitals and both boys were delivered at home shortly after Joseph. Juniors born Joe in summer got married and this is a small ceremony in Orange County. The summer side of the family didn't attend. She didn't seem very close to family. And this worry. Joey's mother so the night before the wedding summer had called her family s and not to come to the wedding and stole his mom. Susan was never quite sure awesome redundant no but it seems like. Joey knew why he wasn't questioning it. So you know there were issues but what family doesn't have issues really. Were your those issues. His issues right and these were a little extraordinary. I guess but who knows what was going on and it was a small second marriage. So maybe it wasn't a big deal. Having family. There is a bigger deal to some people than others where I would put that as a priority. I'd like they're where my family at my wedding. Of course right. Yeah but not all. My family came to my wedding. We'll important one stood. Oh okay well. According to a lot of people though summer was very jealous of Joe his first wife Joey and heather shared custody of their son Jona. Joey's friends friends and family said that summer was very caring Jona even though she wasn't always thrilled with heather. Summer did complained to her sister. Tracy that heather would barge barge into their house regularly. You know even walking in when Joey's in the shower kind of weird and she would drop off Jona without calling ahead and just kind of expect. Expect summer to Babysit so summer was trying to get along and she put up with it at first but eventually she told Joey that she was going to have to break up and leave if he didn't set some boundaries with the ex wife now to me that seems totally reasonable for those to me too yeah. I'm not just a working or drop off daycare right. No Yeah and you're not married to him anymore. So what are you walking into the House for is if you live here. Durham my house. Yeah Komo Yard. That's right so I totally get that. I mean it's territorial thing if nothing else plus. It's disrespectful very disrespectful. To summer summer and to summer and Joey's relationship maybe not the best thing for Jona to see either possibly not

"And and and Robert E Lee was an amazing general. He's still seen as Roe the ideal candidate at West Point, all true. But as it Stanley mcchrystal glossing over who he is. Former general he he ran the war effort and Afghanistan for a while had to step down because of a Rolling Stone interview that doesn't matter anyway. This is all fairly recently. And and he's got a book out about leadership. But he said no point in his schooling. Did the question ever come up out about Robert E Lee, why was he willing to lead an army against his own country? What were his views on slavery? He said nobody ever asked that question in any discussion of Robert L E throughout my schooling. We just kind of skipped over it. And that is true for me too. Yeah. That's interesting. I I know I've considered that at length and talked about that at length in various classes, but I don't remember exactly when they occurred. It might have been college. One of these things in this is interesting from a modern perspective is he considered himself a Virginian more than un-american because your state was your primary locus of power was identity back in the day. That was a big part in. That's that's all very interesting. But the point getting back to the thanksgiving thing because it was interesting, but your tone was very dismissive. Well, I started with this whole thanksgiving thing. So I'm trying to put a boa met which I do. I put bows on top of my mashed potatoes and gravy, Drake. Put a bow on top of the Bo he one of butter. Both my kids may achieve butter bo-. Both my kids made cakes again this year furrows. Yes, we had those for desserts, which I didn't have any oven. Neither did Laura homeboy.

No, no, windex drown. No dog treats only things people eat regularly so way, too many sprinkles boy too, much frosting. Homeboy Henry made his with food coloring and unappealing color on purpose because he thought only he would eat it. Nobody would he made it vomit green whole coloring. Oh boy. I'll get the cake to myself. Oh boy. Anyway, the whole thanksgiving thing came up at at at at our house in Stanley and Stanley mcchrystal hit. This is Robert E Lee screed about you know, I don't wanna wallow in our things that we did wrong in this country because we've mostly gotten it. Right.

"You talk about an amazing leader. And how should we treat those people? They are products of products of the United States of America. But they were on the wrong side of a big issue. Well, that's right. I think we have to treat them as humans, and they we have to admit that even in the context of the moment. I think they made a decision that is morally indefensible now, there are a lot of things that would say they were just, you know, seventy percent of the United States army officers that were in the US army before the war win that will from the south went to the south. But still thirty percent didn't. And so we we can't be entirely dismissive of that is something we should judge them on general Stanley mcchrystal's online is book as leaders myth and reality just a couple of minutes left. Speaking of general, Robert E Lee reminds me of this a can you this one of my favorite topics from the revolutionary period general Washington lost again? And again and is hailed as a great general. Why? Well, he understood I mean, he lost battles. Right. He understood that to win the war. All he really had to do was keep the continental army in the field. And as a as a threat to the British. He knew that over time that Britain would tire of the expense of the war. They would they would feel like they were putting their hand in a bucket in one part of the country pulling out and immediately that the rebel cause would feel back in. And that was the case of all he had to do was not lose. But that was a much taller order than it seemed because keeping the army in the field, keeping it fed keeping it supplied and keeping its morale up minute had to fight periodically. It couldn't just run away. It had to fight periodically. And that was great risk against the best land army in the world the British army at the time. So you know, he actually was a pretty cagey leader and his moral leadership. If you look at times. Was just so towering that many cases it probably kept the army together. When almost nothing else would have we could talk to you all day, sir. And I wish we could perhaps someday we can talk a little longer general Stanley mcchrystal. The book is leaders myth in reality with Jeff Eggers. And Jason men Joan general, a real pleasure. Thank you. What's my honor? Thanks for the time. You got it. If we are doing a long form podcast. I know the question that needs to be asked. But I didn't wanna ask me up at the time. What kind of a leaders Donald Trump? Oh boy. And mcchrystal's answer could be news-making all boy, but I didn't wanna derailed the whole conversation. And do the thing that everybody.
