"On point. Here's something that happens to me a lot as host of this show we have someone on the program to talk about ideas or policies, and they turn out to be so interesting that I think to myself well, that person must have a lot more to say and I want to listen this hour we're listening to detective Sergeant Heather Taylor. She joins us on the show a little while ago to talk about right wing extremism infiltrating American law enforcement. She's an officer with the Saint Louis Metro police, and she talked about some of the things she's seen inside her own department. Before smartphones, you logged into your department email through this cop talk well-paid web page, which is associated with the Saint Louis Police. Association Police Officers Association. And when you would log into this webpage, you scroll down a little bit in. You would see some of the most vile racist content. And you would see things like African Americans being referred to as monkeys apes, the were being used people in our community being referred to as animals in this was before Michael, Brown was killed. While detective sergeant, Taylor is a black woman she's worked in law enforcement for twenty years. She's president of the ethical. Society of police and violence has touched her own family. So her story is an American story and today she's come back to the show to talk with us about it. Detective Sergeant Taylor Welcome back to point. Thank you for having me make me. I'm so glad that you're willing to spend an hour with us. Really appreciate it. Let me just first start by asking you last time. We had you on I really at the end of that. I got on the phone with the whole staff and I was like that woman is incredible. Can we have her back on? Must have a lot more to say? So you really left an impression. Just wanted to underscore that but let me let me start with the simple question you've been in law enforcement for couple of decades. How much has has it changed for you across that time. I think that it's changed a lot in the it's it's changed a lot but kind of stayed the same as well. in. I remember I starting off in just being very, very naive even though I came from the inner city I've seen violence I was kind of shielded a little bit from it and coming into with with this this belief that I was going to. Save the world and. Bring people together and. I want it to be a police officer is not a popular opinion because I wanted to protect victims of violence. I wanted to arrest people that that were predatory in preyed on children. Prayed on elderly in in murdered people. That's why I wanted to become a police officer and I also wanted to become a police officer because my aunt was was murdered by law enforcement and you have these different. You know these different things they were I came into it with disbelief that I was going to be able to fix something and it was very naive Okay. So so hang hang on for just for just a second here I'm going to slow us down a little bit because okay see this is what this is. What interesting guests do a lot in just a couple of sentences. So let me dig into this first of all a bit. First and foremost you said in your words that you grew up in the inner city and that you saw that you were protect largely protected from it but saw a still some violence growing up where did you grow up and what exactly where we're talking about? I grew up in North Saint Louis It's predominantly African American and you know we encountered law enforcement often growing up some good in in some not so good. And my experiences with law enforcement kinda started there. My brother my I'm the youngest of five in my my next sibling, my brother he was always in trouble. No matter what we did. He was just in trouble and he was he was really he was my only friend growing up he really was and he got he got into trouble and so the police will show up sometimes they were Nice other times they weren't so nice but. One of my. Experiences with law enforcement was my mother, my brother. was charged at as an charged as a juvenile for an adult crime murder. He did it. He was guilty My mother literally was my first experience when kind of law enforcement and y you have to be accountable as a citizen why law enforcement has to be accountable and I think I was fourteen fifteen, my brother was. Fifteen, he was ultimately certified I believe at sixteen years old to stand trial for He keeps my brother was guilty of it and I know that's something that most people don't like to say about their family members at heart reality but my mother literally cornered my brother. And told him, you're going to have to go to jail for this. You murdered someone that person has a family and just being devastated by it all because this is my brother we're talking about we're talking about my brother and my only friend and he had to be held accountable for murder in place in a system that my mother didn't trust. We didn't trust the criminal justice system We you know we had experiences where they were mostly negative. There were some positive. Points in there with law enforcement so. Growing up nor St Louis We ran sometimes from law enforcement in that's kind of just kind of how it was. Do. You mind if I ask. Who your brother murdered. He murdered and What's the about a block over I? Remember my mother hearing the shot. In just kind of calling out to him because you know literally he was always running away from home. To stay wanting to be in the streets and he murdered a man block over in the same block that my aunt was ultimately murdered by a law enforcement officer as well. So it's Growing up north, Saint? Louis? Just. Kind of. These are the TRAUMAS that are. Every day for people and It just it's how you adjust to those traumas because they're gonNA be there. It's how you adjusts in how you survive survived them. and. So your brother was incarcerated. Yes. He was sentenced to twenty five years He did about I believe about twenty two. He's been out he's not been in trouble again and it's difficult because you you committed an act. That's the highest crime. I'm homicide supervisor and you know that it's wrong and you have to be held accountable for it but this is still your loved one no matter what this is my brother. Of My brother. And he had to be held accountable for it in his life hasn't been easy of course. In a sense, it shouldn't be you took someone's life of. Without a loved one because of your actions. So sometimes he walks, you know two three miles to get to work. He works two and three jobs, but he's always employed. In so I, I'm proud of my brother in that sense that he. Has Managed it in has come out and he works my brother. has a number of ailments, but he's not going to collect a check for that or or anything like that. That's his thought process with it in you know I respect him. For the changes that he's made, it's not been difficult for him. It's been very difficult but he's chosen to. To work hard and and. Work through things and in jobs where sometimes he's he's not paid at all. Sometimes he's paid because he's a convicted felon. And his felony is is murder so. So. That's the story of. What happened to your brother I'm going to ask you about your aunt here in just a second but but can you tell me a little bit more D. Mind Detective Sergeant Tell me a little bit more since he said that your brother was your best friend growing up. That when he came, he committed this crime in an ended up incarcerated what impact did that have on you? Devastating devastating. It's It's it's just he was. You know when someone's your world this is your friend. You share everything with them. You play with them. taught me basketball just all these different things it was devastating..

"More because the pandemic. So we're in a real bad situation right now. We'll Daryl Johnson standby for just a moment. Darryl was an analyst at the Department of Homeland Security. A decade ago he authored report, warning about right wing, extremism and domestic terrorism in this country. As you here, we are asking him if his concerns are even greater now we'll talk a little bit more about this question of law enforcement when we come back, this is on point. This is point magnetic Riccardi tomorrow on the show. We're going to be talking about schools again. It's a huge issue going to try and take multiple swings at it so tomorrow we're going to take a look at how schools internationally in several other countries that have we're trying to work their way out of this pandemic how they have opened or reopened their schools. What has worked? What hasn't worked? What ideas could we import realistically here into the United States? States, so we want to know if you listen internationally or if you have friends or who were abroad? What stories have you heard about efforts to reopen schools across our pandemic redon world? If you've heard from family or friends, let us know where six, one, seven, three, five, three, zero, six, eight, three, that six, one, seven, three, five, three, zero, six, eight, three. That's four the show tomorrow today. We are talking with Darrell Johnson. He is the owner of. Of analytics. It's a consulting firm for law enforcement that analyzes domestic terrorist activity. He spent years as a senior domestic terrorism analyst at the US Department of Homeland, security, and in two thousand nine, he issued a report warning about a precipitous rise in right wing extremism in this country that report received heavy criticism from conservatives and also wasn't defended by the Obama Administration. We're talking with Daryl today to see if he thinks anything has changed, and thus far he's. He's been telling us that. Yes, it has. It's just gotten worse well. We want to drill down a little bit more into this question of extremism in law enforcement, because there's a whole spectrum of concerns that are worthy of examination here, so let's go to Saint Louis for a moment because in Saint Louis last year, a December two, thousand, nineteen or two of two thousand, nine nineteen report found a large number of Saint Louis. Police officers had been posting. Racism or hateful comments online. Here's a news report from CBS. Affiliate K. M. O., V.. In Saint Louis. Reporting on the dismissal of two police officers who posted this kind of content online tonight to Saint Louis Police officers are no longer with the department. Both have been fired because of social media profiles facebook post from officers. Thomas may be and Ronald. Hasty were flagged by the plain view project. A two year review found messages that celebrated roughing up protesters, shooting criminals and expressing disgust for Islam. That's a report from December of two thousand nineteen. Now we should also note that at least sixty officers. Were found to have posted this content in the saint. Louis police departments and the Saint. Louis Circuit Attorney so concerned about this that she has banned a number of officers from even bringing cases to her office or issuing warrants. Because of their. Their racist content online, so let's turn now to detective Sergeant Heather Taylor. She's president of the ethical. Society of Police, which represents many black officers in Saint Louis Region region. She's a nightwatch homicide sergeant with the Saint. Louis Metro Police Department. Detective Sergeant Taylor Welcome to the program. Hello! So first of all. Can you tell me a little bit about what you have seen? In the department. Go ahead. I that there have been examples. We had warning signs for years that we had officers who were. Subscribing to extreme views who had extreme views on race, we have a web page called. We had a web page called cop talk and before smartphones. You logged in to your department email. Through this cop talk, well-paid Webpage which is associated with the Saint Louis Police, Association Police Officers Association, and when you would log into this web page, you scroll down a little bit, and you would see some of the most vile racist content, and you would see things like African Americans being referred to as monkeys, apes, the N. word, being used people in our community, being referred to as animals in this was before Michael Brown was killed. In our department allowed us to log in through this web page to get to your email and we saw it. We had officers for years who? Who'd use the N. Word and later on in their career? They're placed in specialized units and it's essentially a promotion more pay after using the N. Word, and we've seen it within our police department and the acceptance of these extreme views that were there and I won't. I will not subscribe to that everyone in law enforcement who was a white officer is is white nationalist, a white supremacists? That's an they are We have pockets of people in law enforcement who have been allowed to exist in continue these beliefs without being checked or terminated for these view, so when plain view came about and you had One of the names mentioned in the Kale Kate over the CBS or article that you just played. That piece was sergeant. Ron Hasty won't Sergeant Ryan hayseeds profile. Picture says Ron Nighthawk and Nighthawk is a security position in the clan and you had someone just in plain view. in plain view that had this facebook page name who had these extreme views? She had detective bakery. Who had these extreme views who was friends with other officers? That's what's so so insane. Is that that then culture of a violent? That allowed these guys to function as why force officers making decisions of Freedom sometimes. It was it was horrifying. Well Detective Sergeant if I may, you heard Darrell Johnson. The couple of minutes ago. Say that these that right wing extremist groups are are growing. That we have new movements that. Are, catering specifically to. Law Enforcement's. Possibly, even recruiting from law enforcement. Have you seen. Do you know if there's any evidence of that in your department. I wouldn't I wouldn't be surprised by it? I. Don't think most people were surprised by the plain view project. We weren't surprised by some of the names that were on their ended with this movement with the BOO. Boo Boys! They are extreme You have these extreme views, but we knew about some of this in two thousand and six when the FBI with the redacted. Report about. White supremacists infiltrating law enforcement and recruiting law enforcement personnel. We knew this then so I'm not shocked by Do I think that? there. Can I give you a number on that? I think that no number Really matters because it, it's one is enough to is enough the destruction that one person with these views can do can wreak on a community, especially community of color. A poor community is is enough to last a lifetime. I do believe there are pockets of people who are in I'm not shocked by any of this happening and I don't think most people within our police department are shot by the especially in I, also the president of the Ethical Society Police, which is A. Mostly Minority Police Association, so we have these mostly African American members who? Were really shocked by any of this not shocked by the stories of extreme views. No, we we most of us who have twenty plus years like myself. Lift through COP. Talk have been repeatedly complaining about officers with extreme views on. white supremacy, racist, posting lgbtq that have targeted people repeatedly. Well so detective Sergeant Taylor this is both chilling and. I opening and Darryl Johnson. Hang on here for just a second. Because this F. B. I. Report from two thousand six is actually come up a couple of times in our. And a one and see if there's been any a little bit forward movement on that, so joining us now from Washington is Representative Norma Torres. She's Democratic Representative for California's thirty fifth. Congressional district now last month, she and twenty-seven lawmakers requested that the DOJ released the full contents of this two thousand six F. B. I. Report. The report was titled White Supremacist Infiltration of Law Enforcement and it was released in a heavily redacted version. They're asking it to be released in full representative tourists. Welcome to you. Great to be with the magnetic today. So first of all, just tell me a little bit more has has the Department of Justice responded to your request to re fully released this Oh six FBI report. In currently they have not which is really unfortunate. You know we are working. We're we're in the process..

"It's the of thought that is neutral criminal justice system despite unprecedented attacks we press on. I said Garda's lawsuit cites data data from the State Attorney General showing African Americans in Missouri are subject to to nearly twice as many traffic stops in arrest as white several races. Social media posts allegedly made Missouri. Police officers are also listened to complain in one. A former police division officer allegedly posted a photograph of of on facebook of an African American police officers standing with two African American demonstrators calling the officer. Captain Hug a thug in a disgrace to the a uniform. Not exactly sure what's racist inherently about that. But that's what they wrote in another lieutenant is is accused of posting. I'm not sure what the Hell is going on in our country. These days are Joe by in authentic Mexican restaurant in town and there are white guys putting on a new roof cutting the grass and doing landscaping manscaping. So I guess white people can't do can't put on roofs cut grass and do landscaping. I guess that's something that's only for Mexican people right. We regulate into certain industries. And that's all you can do for ticketless in another facebook post in Missouri USA wrote according to the lawsuit officer offered to sell L. T. shirt emblazoned with the word. Black lives splatter because blue lives matter. These police officers doing this allegedly the lawsuit also alleges that Saint Louis Police Officers Association has gone out of its way to support. White officers. Accused of perpetrating acts of violence in excessive force against African American citizens including the twenty fourteen shooting of Michael Brown. Additionally the Saint Louis a police officer association paid the bail. Jason Stockley await officer shot and killed African American Motorists Anthony Lamar Smith in twenty eleven according to the lawsuit now now if the that same S. L. P. O.. Egg Saint Saint. Louis Police Officers Association does not pay for the bail of a black officer who's accused of Of shooting someone then they Iran clearly. They are on Garner who sought to launch several police reforms a cooling improving investigations of policemen conduct in Saint Louis received threatening letters to our office that were filled was racial invective in some of the letters Garner was called racial. Slurs and various sexist expletives so that's a little bit what's going on you can read on that. ABC News So. I thought it was very interesting that she chose this eighteen. Seventy one and act. The Ku Klux Klan acknowledge not very familiar with that amount of a lawyer and attorney but just reading a little bit about you know Different various website. Apparently this was a law that was enacted to help to enforce the reconstruction efforts mostly in South Carolina but across the board after the civil war reconstruction goes on black. People are being voted into office. Black people are allowed to vote to becoming normalized naturalized citizens in able to express all of their rights right so they had to pass these laws thirteenth Fourteenth Fifteenth Amendment to the Constitution and. What are the laws that helped to enforce? This was this Ku Klux Klan Act which helped to break up the Ku Klux Klan? In any the group that would seek as a group of people with interest in supporting and maintaining white supremacy. So that is essentially what Miss Gardner is a sewing them under. Is that this group right. The Saint Louis Police Association and the city. Her allegations are is that they are seeking in banded together under the white supremacy in order to thwart the efforts of This one black citizen who has the right to WHO's essentially going to impact lies and many other black citizens right every person who under color of statue ordinance regulation custom or usage of any state of territory district of Columbia subjects subjects or causes to be subjected any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to be to the deprivation of any rights privileges or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws. Saab you're liable to the party injured in an action a law suit in equity or any other proper proceeding for redress right so a lot of that is a lot of legal ease. I don't really understand a lot of it. But this is what Miss Connor seeking to do. So I hope the justice prevails and if if it is true that the Right this is only one side door will getting one side of the story and show that the facts will be born out in court but if this is true than You know I hope that. Justice comes for Miss Gardner in for all these other states attorneys district attorney's across the nation who are feeling the brunt of this right. They're from California to Baltimore Down to Florida from two Massachusetts many of these states attorneys feel as if their their efforts towards criminal justice reform of being ordered By those who have a vested interest in keeping the status quo a sad part an sad reality about law enforcement is is that what is it is an institution is a system and unfortunately that system needs to feed upon people. What I what I mean by that prison systems as the union had been supportive of the continued criminalization of marijuana and other drugs? Now you have to think about why these unions would stand behind some kind of policy. He liked that while the more people would because obviously more people need to be arrested so that these people can be housing and car serrated as so therefore the prison officials can continue to have their jobs. Same thing with law enforcement right if you if you stop criminalizing and decriminalize marijuana and other drugs stop prosecuting people for simple possession. Then the arrests go now and therefore what are the police going to do right so this is a this is unfortunately a vicious cycle that that Ms Garner is this is seeking to stop this over criminals. Ation of people minority communities poor people and so a lot of police as officers are fighting back against that because okay if not arresting people for drugs than what are we doing all day right. Why how can we justify numbers? How can we justify our salary? So you want in someone. I hope. That justice prevailed and hope that the truth comes out for her. And how did it sets a precedent for all those prosecutors and other counties talked talked about traffic stops. Some of the things that Miss Gardner was looking into in Saint Louis nother story the cubs from Chicago is the ACLU is asking why minorities are still pull roll over much more than whites right so something that the ACLU is looking into from. The Chicago. Tribune The American Civil Liberties Liberties Union is asking why minorities still pull over much more often than whites. Despite court order reform by City Hall driver's color continued to be stopped at higher percentages. Tis Vander estimated local driving population and they are asked to consent to search more frequently with less. Contraband found Dan. Dan White drivers they were roughly. There were roughly four hundred. Ninety thousand traffic stops Chicago streets last year. More than two hundred thousand Isan than the previous year. According to the data from Illinois Department transportation it was the third consecutive year sharp increases about eighty six percent four hundred twenty one thousand involved minority motorists of those three hundred thousand. Were black that sixty one percent of the total number of people stopped in Chicago Twenty eighteen and even though African Americans are about thirty one percent of the city's two point seven million population near sixty eight thousand and stops involved the white motorists. There is a story. Worry here. Let me give the other side of the of the equations we can understand this Many times in we had to look at this. Are African Americans committing more traffic violations nations. That question has to be asked are recommending more traffic violations. I know that when we had a study in Connecticut concerning the same think I think in my own home city we were found to be stopping. African Americans more unfortunately a lot of times. Here's what's happened Take this for what it's worth and it's the honest to goodness truth. I think that you know by not going to give you some. Bs is that officers are often targeting targeting areas in neighborhoods. Where crime is is happening? It's just a fact it's just the fact that we want that right if there's shootings and gang activity in certain neighborhoods we need to target those neighborhoods in if we can stop op people if we can perform these type of motor vehicle stops and Get people to understand that there is a police presence then that that only worsened in in the favor right and it helps to bring on shootings and everything like that. It's only one of the tactics that can that is used to address a crime in certain neighborhoods and. That's one of the tactics tactic so we had to be very careful about when we asking law enforcement not to stop certain people because they are black and many times. And I'm going to ask you to do this as as you listen to this. Drive down the street and tried to tell What the race is of the person in front of you right Many times you can't you cannot tell many times you cannot tell the race. The person WHO's driving in front of you then people have tend to Windows nowadays and you cannot see into the windows In so many times you don't know but a person who's in front of you. Who runs a stop sign? Who Refuses to who speeds up at the Yellow Line tries to beat that light? That red light Many times you don't know what that rid the races. So that person in so the first thing I'm going to ask is what is the race. What is who is committing more of these types of infractions? Right first thing black I people have to do is stop committing more infraction. I don't know the numbers and Statistics Chicago. But I do know that when we were. We were approached a concerning turning these types of measures that we were able to justify the fact. That what we're doing when we gave the information as to where the crimes were happening where shootings were happening. Where are street-level robberies? Were happening and then we showed that our our enforcement actions and activities were geared towards those particular neighborhoods in those particular areas and so therefore for once again. We were stopping people who are committing infractions. motor-vehicle stops in those areas. And that's what we were doing so that may be exactly. Actually what Chicago was doing. If that is what's going on then I give them my whole heart in full support in what they're doing in that needs to be understood by people right so just because you gotta be very careful when you look at numbers and statistics because there may be reasons behind this. I'm not saying not to look into I'm not saying that the ACLU and other watch groups now look into these matters but there may be a justification for it right there may be a justification for what's going on so you can read more about that and the a Chicago Tribune namely articles as traffic stops by Chicago. POLICE SPIKE ACU ask. Why minorities are still pulled all over much more than whites sticking with Chicago just for a minute here? This was a story I think from December but I'll mention it again here again is that they the new interim police chief that they have has decreased the or eliminated the merit system for promotions things. And I think that that's very key when we talk about police corruption when we talk about why police officers playing drugs on people while they are selling drugs and trying to boost up their numbers burson trying to increase their arrests. What the question is why a lot of times they doing that? Well the merit system is essentially. Someone's going up for promotion if Chicago has some type of A testing process I e a written test in on maybe some type of oral board presentation Then maybe another component of the testing process is merit test right. So how many arrests do you get..

"Kellyanne for Charlie Brennan as we are every Friday he'll be back with you on Monday. Good morning, John handgun Miguel. What's going on over there, pal? Not much, man. What a cold day quite a shift in temperatures yesterday went to the office. It was sixty degrees left. It was twenty. It's cold chilly out there, but bright blue skies out. There woke up this morning to read about this police shooting that took place in Saint Louis counting where Jennings man shot at the Saint Louis county police officer he pled guilty to reduce charges. And as a result is only getting what fifteen years in prison. Yeah. With an ability to go for parole in two years. I mean, you shoot it a cop, and you only get fifteen years in here's the here's the story. So this this guy his name is brothel, George what a name forty four years old. And he was charged originally in the Cobra two thousand seventeen incident with four counts of first degree assault on a law enforcement officer forecasts of armed criminal action. One count of a drug possession one count of unlawful use of a weapon and one count of resisting arrest which should have put him away for many many decades in a plea agreement reached with the new county prosecutor Wesley bell, Mr. brothel, George has pleaded guilty to four counts of second degree assault on law enforcement officer along with some other charges. He received fifteen years in prison on each charge except for one in which he got seven years all sentences to be served concurrently, which means it's a total of fifteen years or worst case scenario, and he is eligible for parole in two and a half years. Why do you plead a cop shooting somebody who's shooting in a cop? I mean, it seems to me the jury is going to with the evidence that existed here. Was gonna convict this guy, usually you plead when you're worried that the jury may not give a sentence here. I don't understand why you'd even plead with a spokesman for Wesley bell through his spokesperson for his chief of staff. Sam Walton said there are other extenuating case intensive facts unknown to the business manager of the Saint Louis police association. Alton said, we are comfortable with the guilty plea and sentence handed down to the defendant. So that's the position of the prosecutors. Here's the thing, you know. If there's anything you. There's so many things here that are wrong with this situation. You've got a felon who's a drug dealer who's the subject of an undercover drug sting who is firing a weapon at a police officer now thank goodness. He didn't kill the police officer. But that's almost you know, in terms of sentencing, I don't wanna be a relevant and he's illegally and possession of drugs. He's legally and unlawfully using a weapon he's firing at a police officer. He's resisting arrest all of these things. And he gets what is essentially a slap on the wrist. And through a plea bargain. So there's no even no jury that's going to hear this case ever. And here's what the judge said. The judge said I will go along with this deal. I'm reluctant to go along with it. But I have to assume the prosecutor knows more about the case than I do. And they have concluded for whatever reason that this isn't appropriate sentence as with judge Wallich said in the twenty second circuit. Saint Louis county. This is let me tell you. I don't think this is going to be the first time we're going to report a story like this over the next four years, and it is a sad day. So jelly agree that this doesn't make any sense. I wonder if any of you have similar feelings are different feelings three one four four three six seven nine hundred one eight hundred nine to five eleven twenty. I just think if you shoot at a police officer. The you. You ought not be able to plead those cases, I mean this guy. It's just sad to see. What's what's happening? The guy our friend brothel George here the defendant. Already served six years in prison for a two thousand felony conviction for drug possession. So this is not his first rodeo out there. This is the second case that he's had and firing at a police officer. You know, what he's going to be out on the street again. And let's go let's go to the phones. And max is joining us soon as I do that max you're on game Molex morning. Okay. Real quick. I wanna thank you. I know you don't like Wesley bell against I I kinda like. Everything you've said today don't make me think the next four years is he is dangerous. But here's something he has in common with Robert McCulloch, your beloved, Robert Koehler. Yes. You know, what he has in common with Robert McCulloch? What's up? Which is kind of a personal thing. So you can't say he's a copywriter. They both. Hey, how's an ad police for father's thanks for. Max, thank you very much for sharing. I like Wesley bell. I actually appreciate some of the things that he's doing this one here. I just disagree with them. I don't understand why you'd plead this case. Let's go to Steve, Steve if you've got thoughts on this. Stave. I'm here. Yeah. We are. I think we now know fan on Wesley del, but it looks to me like what I read and everything that that there's probably a real good chance at this guy rolled on some other cases, you know, he's informing and their pain and back by by going easy on him. So do you think that if he rolls that they ought to? No, no. I don't think that they ought to. I'm I'm just saying it looks to me like what's going on. Well, I may be the case. All right. Thanks, steve. Yeah. But he shot at a police officer. Okay. Yeah. He may he may have he may have knocked on some other bad actors out there, but he shot at a police in look as much as we tend you and I disagree vehemently about guns in their role rang all of this. But what I have said consistently for decades. Now is that if you use a gun illegally in the commission of a crime, you ought to get the harshest possible sentence out there if you want to get rid of dangerous guns on the street and people using them one thing you can do is lock people up when they use firearms, especially when they use a firearm against a police officer. That's the part here. That's got my head spending. Tom, we go to you now on came wax. Are you gentlemen? I my father used to be a prosecutor in Turkey quit because they wanted him to prosecute cookie Thornton. Yeah. Refused to prosecute cookie and said it was wrong. He was grandfathered in but on this. It's a matter of you have to make sure that we know everything about what's going what the charges are. And why they did the plea bargain. It sounds really okay. All right. Thank thank you, Tom. They said there were extenuating circumstances is what the prosecutor's office said. I would be hard pressed to envision a extenuating circumstance would justify this kind of a sentence. However, and I don't know this just struck me is very unfortunate. And I think it sends the wrong message to the criminal element in this town and. Well, it would help us lead got time for one more call here. Let's check in when John John you're on came wax. First off what it caused the housing inmate for a year through the regular? And I also believe that you're done. You will never ever ever walked the streets of anytime in America ever again. I'm with you, John. I do not know what it costs to has been. I'm sure it's not inexpensive. Thank you for your call. I was John. Yeah. You know, shooting in a police officer is not the kind of thing for which you should be eligible for parole in a couple of three years. I mean, it's just in in you, just talk about the message that that sends to the criminal element that's out there. Anyway, it's we have such a full day for you. We're gonna visiting with Steve chaggaris here in a little bit. Non in Washington DC, the fall out of the president's state of the union address the democratic response. Yes, sir. By the way, on the state of the union address. I know you probably didn't care for it. Too much. I have to tell you. I think teleprompter. Trump is the worst Trump there is because he has a hard time, delivering the speech. He he he he reads it oh into sentences in Iran on matter. He runs over his own applause lines. I thought it was a really magnificent speech. And I thought the way he incorporated guests in the gallery was brilliant. And I think he wove together a story about the greatness of America, which is what his presidency, you know, in its best impulses is all about and and more to the to the fact I was struck by the beginning of that speech. There are in my lifetime three presidents who could have delivered the front end of that speech, which was a recitation of the economic situation in the country today. Talking about unemployment talking about the growth of the economy talking about how how healthy the economy is being the fact that there's more people working today than ever before in the history of the country, the economic numbers, the hard cold black and white numbers that Donald Trump was able to recite the only other presidents in my lifetime could have given that kind of a recitation were Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, and no other president has had the kind of economic success that would lend itself to that recitation the Donald Trump. And and and you know, I wish as a Republican I wish the president would focus on those economic achievements because they are considerable and. To hear them laid out like that systematic. Remember Bill Clinton was very effective at doing that. And so, of course, was Ronald Reagan. That's whatever you may think of Donald Trump. That's a genuine accomplishment. He is John Hancock. I'm Michael Kelly. We're going to revisit the state of the union here in a minute. Because I have some thoughts on what I think the state of the union is becoming a charade nominee minimum pox on everybody's house. But first we're going to check in with Steve chaggaris, but we're gonna pay some bills. I believe back right after this on came wax. The.
