"Decided to limit the strike to just three days. Can you tell us a little bit about why that is? Yeah, so our nurses and for many other professions in the human service industry, it can be really gut wrenching for us to make a decision to walk off the job to leave the people we serve. That's why we're nurses. That's why we're in the profession that we're in. But we just have realized that the conditions are such that we can't be silent. We can't not respond to this. And so we made the really difficult decision to take this strike. And we hope that three days is enough, and we're going to come back to the table after these three days and hopefully resume constructive dialog with management. Spokespeople for the affected hospital systems have blamed this strike on nurses and they say that the MNA has refused attempts at neutral mediation, how do you respond to that? You know, I think we're not refusing mediation out, right? We're refusing mediation right now. And part of that is because mediators are there to help us reach a deal to help the parties find common ground. And we haven't seen a hospital willing to find any ground at all, let alone common ground. I own facility, we have rewritten in our staff and proposals from scratch, three times, and only on Saturday night at the 11th hour, did the hospital respond to our staff and proposal for the first time. So I don't think a mediator would have really pushed them to find common ground when they weren't wanting to look at the ground at all. And just to make sure I understand when you say your staffing proposal is that like how many nurses are working at any given time or for what length of shifts or what does that look like? We understand that nursing shortage, acute healthcare worker shortage, which is a complex problem. And so we proposed solution that included staffing and scheduling language, language to protect nurses from discipline for refusing assignments that they deemed were unsafe, as well as other things. Obviously, the pandemic has stretched many healthcare workers incredibly thin, but nurses that we've talked to over the last two years, they often say that chronic understaffing, it predates the pandemic. Is that your experience in the state of Minnesota? Absolutely. I've been a nurse for 7 years now. I know and work with many nurses who have been in the field for decades longer than that. This pandemic certainly shown a bright spotlight on the crisis of understaffing and worker shortages in the healthcare industry. But this problem has been festering for decades. And we realized that we need to take action now because if we don't address this problem now, the system I'm afraid is just going to buckle and tell it breaks. And Chris, what would you like patience to understand about the strike? We really want patients to know that we are keeping their care at the center of our negotiations. That's why we're doing what we're doing. We don't want to be on the streets. We want to be at the bedside caring for patients, but we simply can't be silent anymore because the care that we deliver them is just too important to us. That's Chris rubbish first vice president of the Minnesota nurses association. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me. And we've reached out to affected hospitals in Minnesota for comment, but we haven't yet heard back. A navy arson trial is about to get underway more than two years after fire destroyed the USS Bonham Richard. The trial comes as the navy continues to unravel why the fire on the warship became one of the worst peacetime disasters in its history. Steve Walsh, with KPBS in San Diego, has the story. Beginning on July 12th, 2020, the USS Bonham Richard burned for nearly 5 days in San Diego bay. Senior chief Michael Robert penny remembers it well. It

"So that's that's the thing that made me so important to me. And hopeless. Without some other permanent solution, the sisters now have two years to make it through the backlogged immigration process. For NPR news, I'm Steve Walsh in San Diego. Guy Vince's new book delivers a message that is clear, sharp, and jolting. Large regions of the world are becoming unlivable, she says, lethal for three to 5 billion of us. We can survive but to do so will require a planned and deliberate migration of the kind, humanity has never before undertaken. Her new book, nomad century, how climate migration will reshape our world. Guy avenged the award winning science journalist joins us now from London. Thanks for being with us. Oh, it's a great pleasure. Thanks for having me on. One of your early startling sentences says quote, we already know which communities will need to relocate by 2050. That's just 28 years away. I have to ask who needs to move and win. Yeah, it's pretty shocking, isn't it? But if you look at the climate projections and if you look at our globe, temperatures are just going to become too hot. Unbearably hot for parts of the year, see level rise will cause too much erosion. Huge extreme storms. We talk a lot about climate mitigation about trying to reduce our carbon emissions. More climate change is already with us. And now we're starting to talk about adaptation about changing the way we live to adapt to this much hotter world. Well, what we're not talking about is that for huge numbers of people, there is no way to adapt. They're going to have to move as well. You also write migration will save us because it is migration that made us who we are, but it wasn't that in centuries when people were nomadic and lived off the land. Well, exactly. Human history is built on migration. And it's been to our great success. Unfortunately, what we have done in the last few centuries is hamper that great tool. So we've made things harder for ourselves with this artificial bordering of nation states that we belong to apparently. Well, but let me get you to follow up on that because you think we maybe should no longer divide and rule ourselves by the nation state system. Well, you know, I'm not saying throw out the nation state system because, you know, in the time that we have to deal with this crisis, I don't think there's time to completely reinvent nation states as such, but we need to rethink how we decide where someone is allowed to live. And let's remember that a lot of the relatively safe places to live on our planet, which we're talking about the far north, really, the northern latitudes, these are places which are suffering as well. A demographic crisis, you know, people are not having enough babies to support the aging population. And in a few decades, this will be a huge problem. This is just mind bending. But how does somebody living, let's say, in Cairo, I mean, they might say, you know, if my family is going to survive, we better move to the Arctic. But that's difficult to do. Yeah, I mean, it's nothing short of an absolute tragedy that people are going to have to move. But let's be clear, migration this century is inevitable. This is my way of staring head on what we are facing, which is degrees, Celsius, hotter. These are deadly temperatures. So what I'm saying is we have mass migration, let's manage it. Let's not severe from one utter crisis to another with many deaths and with social unrest and political unrest. And we need people to do this. This could be done in a manageable, safe, equitable way, or it could be a catastrophe. I feel the need to be utterly specific for decades, the American Southwest and west has been energized, populated by people moving from the north. You are suggesting that people Texas Florida, Arizona, New Mexico, ought to move back to where maybe some of their great grandfathers lived in Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Yeah, yeah, yeah. We're going to see the great reversal, the rust belt cities being revived. But yeah, places like New Orleans, you know, lifespan is limited. It will be flooded, increasingly. And we're going to start seeing those sort of climate apartheid where the poorest and most disadvantaged people in society are the worst impacted by climate effects. So we can do something about that with policy, but we need to plan for it. I must say your book was a revelation to me, but as you make it plain, people who are experts who know what they're talking about are talking about this. Yeah, I mean, some leaders are going ahead and becoming much more proactive in this way. So for example, Canada is planning already on tripling its population over the next few decades. And it's doing that through immigration. And as part of that has programs for integration and its planning demographically, where it will need more schools, hospitals, and so on to make it work. So although this might seem completely out there and the scale that we're looking at is going to be unprecedented, you know, nations are already sort of on board with the idea that we do need to improve immigration and the way it works. I apologize for totally personal question. As I do the math, you will be in your early 70s by 2050. The date you say by which much if not most of the world will have to migrate. Are you making plans? You know, I have been. I'm half Australian. That's a place that I love, but it's cursed. And it upsets me that I won't make a home there again. Moving is a very difficult decision. It means leaving behind networks, friendships, familiar places, sometimes language. It's a very difficult decision for anyone to make. They have to be helped to make it so that they have a future to look forward to. Guy event, sure new book. No match century, how climate migration will reshape our world. Thank you so much for being with us. Well, thank you so much for having me on. I really

"Federal jury has convicted more officers in the largest corruption case in the history of the navy. Steve Walsh with member station K PBS in San Diego reports. Four former naval officers were convicted for their role in helping Malaysian contractor Leonard Francis defraud the government out of at least $35 million. Rachel van landing him is a former air force officer who teaches at southwestern law in LA. That's what this case is really about is how easily navy souls were sold. Maybe honor were sold for prostitutes for lavish dinners for money over American interests. After deliberating for nearly two weeks the jury deadlocked on whether to convict the 5th officer on trial, like the others, retired rear admiral Bruce loveless was charged with accepting bribes and conspiracy. Loveless is among the highest ranking officers to be caught up in the wide ranging corruption probe, which lasted nearly a decade. The military has been the last fashion of our heroes. Oh, they took a couple gifts. Oh, it's just boys being boys. And in fact, that's part of the insidious nature of the crimes that we're ongoing here. They became almost normalized. This is just the way we do business in this part of the world. It's all okay. A generation of officers who served in the Pacific came under scrutiny after Francis was arrested in San Diego in 2013. Loveless was this second admiral charged. Rear admiral Robert gilboa became the first sitting admiral to ever be charged in federal court. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison in 2018. No decision in one high profile case doesn't take away from the enormity of the scandal van landingham says. They were willing to trade away classified information trade away proprietary information that enabled a foreign contractor to defraud the U.S. government. How can we trust those in the navy? How can we trust that our national security is actually appropriately being looked after? The man dubbed fat Leonard because of his size pleaded guilty in 2015 to bribing U.S. Navy officers to help steer ships to his ports in the western Pacific, where he routinely overcharged the navy. With Wednesday's verdicts, a total of 33 current and former navy officials have been found guilty or pleaded guilty in what's seen as the largest scandal

"The sailor accused of setting the fire that destroyed the USS Bonham Richard will be in court today for the first time The navy will have to prove its case despite its own reports showing a series of failures after the fire broke out that led to the total loss of the ship Steve Walsh with K PBS in San Diego has the story Seeming apprentice Ryan saw your maze is accused of setting the fire that burned along the San Diego waterfront for four days An earlier court filing paints maize as a disgruntled sailor upset with his position in the navy after failing to qualify as a seal Outside legal analysts see some hurdles for prosecutors in the case attorney Tony O'Neill It seems like they must have more than they've released to the media that's out there in the public It seems like they've kept some of it back This is the most high profile case for the navy since seal Eddie Gallagher went on trial for war crimes in 2019 When after repeated meddling from the Trump White House Gallagher largely went free Only Elizabeth the same law firm that also represented Gallagher I think the fact that this case is going to get media coverage in the last navy case that got a lot of media coverage was pretty embarrassing for the navy Naval investigators have concluded that the ship should have been saved whether or not the fire was arson multiple investigations have highlighted poor training and a lack of coordination on the morning of the fire While only maze is charged with crimes 36 others have been referred for additional action Lawrence Brennan is a former naval officer in a law professor at fordham university If the accused is truly guilty of igniting a fire that caused damage and intended to do if that's crime But is the captain the executive officer of the command duty officer are they culpable in a criminal sense The bun on Richard was being upgraded to handle the new F-35 fighter jet Only a skeleton crew was on board that July weekend At the height of COVID protocols everyone was wearing masks making it harder to positively ID the suspect though that issue isn't insurmountable Brennan says I think that will be one of the points we'll see some evidence at the hearing I'm not surprised if sailors can recognize their shipmates even with masks on We do a fair amount of work wearing face coverings before COVID It doesn't look open and shut to me That's why I think they must have something that they haven't released Some sailors seeing him leave the area doesn't sound like enough to me I mean the fact that he was disgruntled doesn't sound like enough O'Neal says arson can be difficult to prove in court then there's also the question over whether the defense had enough access to the ship before the navy sent the vessel to be scrapped The fact that it is hard to prove and that it does end up being experts explaining to a jury of while they're professionals They're certainly not fire experts The fact that the fence didn't get their expert in there to say no actually means ABC is going to be really important The navy put a $4 billion price tag on the loss of the USS Bonham Richard The hearings set for this week are basically the navy's version of a grand jury Maize could decide to plead guilty to a lesser charge first prosecutors have to show they have enough evidence to warn a trial In a case that once again puts naval justice in the national spotlight For NPR news I'm Steve Walsh Her fans are remembering Anne Rice author of the vampire chronicles She died Saturday at age 80 due to complications from a stroke Rice's first

You know, I think that we could make it maybe one or two more years. That would have put him out of 25 wasn't it? At one point, he said he'd rather be dead than singing satisfaction at 40. They remember some kind of a quote like, Yeah, But if you remember back in the steel wheels to work, how many millions to keep doing it, All right, then I don't think they need the money. No, but if you remember in 1989 when steel wills came out Rolling stone. All these places they had the Rolling Stones on walkers and all these cartoons, right, Right.

"This is all things considered. I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Elsa Chang During former President Trump's first impeachment trial, New York Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik emerged as a star in Trump's eyes for rigorously defending him when she opens that mouth you a killer. That release that loyalty is likely to be rewarded next week, House Republicans are planning to remove Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney from leadership for her ongoing criticism of Trump and his efforts to discredit the 2020 election. And to replace her with Stefanek to learn more about the New York congresswoman's rise to power. We're joined now by NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. Hey, Sue! Hey, Elsa. So how did at least to find it Get into politics in the first place? Well, she was active in Republican politics right out of Harvard University. She worked in the George W. Bush administration as a domestic policy staffer. And then went on to work for Mitt Romney's on successful 2012 presidential campaign. It was there that she became a really close friend and political ally of then Congressman Paul Ryan, who was at the time Romney's running mate. And when Romney lost, Ryan encouraged her to run for Congress, and she did, and she ended up winning house seat in upstate New York in 2014. At the time, she was only 30 years old. She was the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. And she really started her career is someone who was viewed within the party as a rising star right. But at the beginning of her career, she was viewed as kind of this relative moderate right and now she's seen as a top trump ally. How did she evolve within the party? I mean, I think she's involved in part because our congressional district is evolved when she won six years ago, she'd want to see that former President Barack Obama had carried twice. Today. It's firmly of Donald Trump district. He also carried it by double digits, and she sort of evolved along with her district. She still has a moderate voting record. You know, she opposed things like the 2017 trump tax cuts. Then the first impeachment trial came along, and she used her position on the House Intelligence Committee and really leaned into this role as a trump defender, not just in the impeachment hearings. But these press conferences, along with some of the folks who have been seen as some of Trump's closest allies, thinking of Republicans like Ohio's Jim Jordan. Trump loved her district loved it. Donors loved it. You know, she raised $13 million ahead of the 2020 election, which had been nearly five times as much as she had ever raised before, and she really has never looked back since then. Have said, does her moderate voting record give any of her Republican colleagues pause? Not really. Because this fight just isn't about ideology. You know. Liz Cheney is a Mork conservative Republican analista phonic, but Stefanik is not going to criticize Trump or his ongoing efforts to discredit the 2020 election. You know, Like most of her House Republican colleagues, he voted to object to electoral college results on January 6th after the capital had been raided. Genie did not do that. She opposed the second impeachment, Cheney voted for it. And she, like many Republicans, believes Trump is key to winning control of the house in 2022, whereas Cheney has said she wants Trump to have no role in the party going forward at all. I'm curious how much of a relationship do Stefanik and Cheney have? Well, they used to be close. Not only did they have a relationship, Stefanik gave the nominating speeches in both 2018 and 2020 for Cheney toe hold the leadership job. Stefanik is now trying to take from her. So how do you think this whole leadership shakeup will play out? Well, it's all gonna happen behind closed doors and as early as next week if Cheney does not step down, and there's no indication that she will, Republicans will have to offer emotion to force a vote to remove her, assuming that successful than they would bend hold an election to replace her. As of right now, there's no one challenging Stefanik for the job. That is NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. Thank you, Sue, you're welcome.

The Marine substantiated his claims of harassment after an incident following the West Coast Marine Corps ball. It wasn't enough to save his career. KPBS is Steve Walsh has the story for most of his six years in the Navy Lieutenant Adam Adams. He says he felt supported as an openly gay pilot. He can tell you when that changed November of 2019 Adamski is a helicopter pilot for a Navy search and rescue squadron. The group works closely with the Marines, Addams, He was invited to a West Coast Marine Corps birthday ball at a local casino. He came back to the hotel room where the Marines have been holding an after party when I walked into the door, and you something wasn't right because the TV in that suite had been moved, like on the pivot to face the doorway, and I saw my dress whites draped over and around the TV and there was hardcore gay porn plane. His uniform was wrapped around a TV playing pornography. It didn't feel like a harmless prank. It felt like something else. Some of the other Marines in the squadron wanted to find those responsible. Butt Addams. He says he was getting ready for his first deployment. As a pilot. He wanted to shrug it off and let the matter go, but word had spread. Adamski started hearing from other service members and received numerous calls from people. They're in the closet and that squadron, both men and women and openly gay service members. Tell me they're upset in that they don't think the climate especially for pilot is a good planet and that squadron and they think I should report it to the don't ask, Don't tell policy ended a decade ago, allowing LGBT service members to serve openly. But a study in the Journal of Sexuality Research and Social Policy found 59% of service members still didn't feel comfortable coming out to their peers. Sasha Booker is a former Marine and an attorney with the civil rights organization Lambda Legal. She says. Changing the law didn't change the culture. It's one thing to have going out. Don't tell removes. It's another thing to have a culture where people can feel safe being who they are and not have to worry about being discriminated against or harassed. A lot of this comes from Talk down 18 months after a Dunsky reported the incident, he still hasn't received final word on this case. His version of events has been substantiated by the squadron commander in charge of the three Marines found culpable and later triggered an inspector general's investigation. Initially, the squadron commander even offered to pull their pilot's wings for the incident. Addams Key thought that was too severe. I want an in person apology. From all three of them. I want. I want a meeting to which they're there, and I could talk to him. He also wanted something on their permanent record. Months went by Adamski filed an inspector general's complaint after the Marines told their commander that they had made their apologies and repaid the hotel charges for the porn. The incident continued to eat it a damn scheme unhappy. I'm no longer feel like I am an effective leader, an officer a pilot. I don't feel part of military more Addams Key has been called into his command more than once to address his decision to speak publicly about his case.

Colorado has had one Alaska and a triple fatality, and now we have just suffered a quadruple fatality that This is easily could have been seven people killed in that avalanche that day, according to National statistics compiled by the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, more than a third of avalanche deaths so far this year involved these group accidents. Ethan Green, the center's director, says that's made February deadly in a way he's never seen. We don't see multiple multiple Fatality accidents within a short period of time. There's really only a couple of times that we've seen that in the last, you know, 60 years, Green says. Forecasters are working to get the word out that people heading out on skis or snowmobiles need to be extra cautious. It's safe to say that we are having a bad year. It's more of a question of how bad it's going to be. Green says people should check forecasts and have the right training and equipment before visiting areas away from commercial ski areas where avalanches are possible. Ryan Man. NPR news For the first time ever. Women are training to be Marines at boot camp in San Diego. The Marines were the last of the armed services to separate men and women at boot camp until Congress ordered them to make recruit training coed. The new recruits started last week. Steve Walsh with member station KPBS has been following them and has this report. I think that's it. After two weeks of isolation under protocols to stop the spread of covert 19, the first company to include female recruits officially stand at attention. First in the 100 Year history of boot camp in San Diego. Assemble outside the doors Mark through this portal walks the future of the United States Marine Corps drill instructor staff sergeant issues that was brought in from Paris Island, South Carolina, to be part of San Diego's first team of female drill instructors. Where is silent as trained female recruits in separate units since the 19 forties on their first days as job was to put both male and female recruits through their paces. Some people haven't gone, yelled it at all their whole life. They need to understand the difference. You're gonna move. When I tell you to move. You're gonna do what I tell you to do Right now Congress is telling the core. They have five years the end gender segregation at Paris Island and eight years at San Diego. Leadership is hinting that after holding out the Marines will try to beat Congress's timetable. That laid out the task for these women with the bluntness of a drill instructor. They had something to prove. They're the only females that is training right now. This is the first female platoon so they are gonna be going against all their brothers inside of that whole company, so They have to show everyone that they are really to be here. 19 year old tear to Taro is from Hawaii, but she grew up in the Marshall Islands. You're starting to understand the significance. I had no words at first. But now I take pride in that, you know, not many people get this opportunity here today. Critics have charged that keeping men and women separate justice they become Marines has created larger issues for the corps. In 2013 Elizabeth Fitzgerald commanded a company of female Marines at Paris Island. She has since left. The Marines, she says during her time at Parris Island of male instructor ordered their recruits to look away is the female recruits past. Fitzgerald believes the lack of integration led to chronic problems like online scandals were active duty Marines were caught sharing and commenting on photos of female Marines, all of our leadership trades. Our leadership principles are values all of those air The foundation is laid right at boot camp only about 9% of Marines or women, the lowest percentage of any service. They're also the youngest service on average, 70% or 24 years old or younger. Fitzgerald says it's not the young recruits but their leaders who struggle with integrating women at boot camp. The younger generation I feel like never has an issue with the change. It's always stems from Top leadership in San Diego, The first female recruits were largely focused on the moment. 19 year old Gabrielle Lansford of Valparaiso, Indiana, had just been given her gear. I'm a little nervous, but nothing that I didn't expect. So her brother had been a Marine. We're gonna learn a lot about ourselves that we probably didn't learn before. We're going to build up our leadership skills and just overall build up our personality commanders that boot camp say this is still officially attest. But for now, very few changes were required for this first class. As these new recruits, men and women embark on the 13 weeks it takes to become a U. S. Marine for NPR news.

I mean outside of the two or three guys, you know the Mahomes the breezes and the Brady's even the Brady's taking a discount of 25 million season. Are we at the point now where really every single team every team around the NFL, and that includes the Ravens when they start restructure Lamar's new deal, etcetera Josh Allen for the Bills. Do you start to say? I just can't justify giving that kind of money unless I'm 1000% sure, And the way you become 1000% sure. Is probably by getting to the Super Bowl minimally and probably winning it. Yeah, no, it is And it's can. I was left a couple days ago. You hear when you when we come in every hour bt that the Pat Mahomes thing, how it's messed it up for everybody, not only the mess it up for the achievement point point for these young quarterbacks, he also mess it up for the contract. Some of these young quarterbacks and we can get back this a little bit later because I know the coach coach Johnson is there, but like he signed a deal that it's so it's enormous, but it's so team friendly. And his average per year is nowhere near what some of these other guys are are making in real time, like the real money not to cap money, the real money, so he's he's gonna make people thinking organizations thing to Ah lot for these teams to figure out there's no doubt it's a lot of cheese that gets spread pretty thin. When you deal with a salary cap. A ticket just said We have coach Jimmy Johnson hold the fame coach. Great Collegiate coach Great NFL coach. Great broadcaster, help of fishermen. Jimmie Johnson would've coach Teak interior Hey, doing today, buddy. Everything's going good. I love all those accolades. You're going my way. I'm not lying. Jimmy, you earned the bald man we were way were talking about you're the new ad that's out from a culture and that's what you're here for. And and I wonder I'm gonna ask you this question. Um, because that's the slogan. Are you happy Because you win, or did you win Because you were happy? Did you love what you were doing? Because I think about some of these coaches. Bela Chick is one that pumps the mind. Saving is another on the college ranks. They don't look like they're happy doing what they're doing. Did you love what you were doing when you were doing it? Both with Miami, which I'll get to in a little bit. And the Dallas Cowboys. Well, that don't without question you are. I love what I was doing. I love women. I well being on the sideline. And you know, really those guys saving and on Bill Belichick, and obviously I know both of them really well, Bill and I have been friends ever since it's Cleveland days and he comes down, Fisher. I mean, he's just happy as can be. You know, obviously you winning makes him happy. I don't want people that don't know him. And they know that we're friends. They said, you know. Hey, is Bill Belichick happy? I said, Yeah, He's happy and tell him Don't tell his face that because his face but I know what you look at the Michelob Ultra commercial that really struck a nerve with me. As a coach, you know, obviously I was happy when we won, but you look at it and you maybe, you know, if you go up you think you're happy? You're gonna be a better coach, or you're gonna be better and whatever you do s so it's really a cool commercial. On top of that would make a little bow throw. You know, 95 calories in 2.6 carbs keeps us healthy as well. Just keep that hair looking as good as it still looks. Jimmy had no bowl, guys. Yeah. What the hell, dude? E don't know what I think. I got the hair from my dad. He had blown black hair for a long time before it turned white, which I did. Yeah, I got you. So you know, we want to ask you about back and he said well, get into Miami stuff, too, But But Jimmy, just watching football that obviously chopping it up with the guys on Fox every every Sunday's you have for years. I mean, it takes quite Ah, a few bad decisions to go from where the Texans were last year in the playoffs toe where they are now, like you wanted to draw right up a book, the Anatomy of messing up a franchise. This might be the most egregious mess ups plural in a long time. So how do you How do you even fix it? And like, how can you even try to salvage this relationship with Shawn? Well, you know, I think without question David Cole. He's got to go there and knock on the door and they got to spend some time together. He's gotta talk him into stand. You can't lose a franchise quarterback like it's now they made. Tremendous mistake's in the catch. You know, I haven't liked two or three of the trades that they have made. But the big one was letting Hopkins go on. And I'm sure that didn't sit well. And so you look at some of the trade that they made. You look at some of the draft picks and so You say these change, but One of those changes cannot be losing franchise quarterback. That's a great player. Um, somehow they've got to mend that fence and You know, like I know my first year in Dallas of your head Troy Aikman as my first round pick, but I also attracted Steve Walsh. Well drafted world for one reason, so I could trade him, You know, for the new value of quarterbacks. And I eventually trading for 12 and three but you know that first year we were so bad, and I had to walk a tightrope between the two quarterbacks because I didn't want to diminish the trade value for Walsh. After a traded walls. I went to the toys home. And we sit down and we talked. He wants Gettinto tropical fish. So we went on. I spent the day with him way set up a fish tank had a couple of cold Bigelow up all throws and on. So we meant to defense and I think they would call He's gotta, you know, work that way. You know he's got to get, you know, watching back on board because you just can't afford to lose their coach..

U.S. Navy SEAL spared jail but demoted after war crimes trial

"Special operations chief Edward Gallagher was found not guilty yesterday of murdering a suspected ISIS prisoner in Iraq the decorated navy seal had been accused of stabbing the wounded teenage captive back in twenty seventeen William Branham has the story that's right Judy in addition to being found innocent on the first degree murder charge cheap Gallagher was also found not guilty of attempted murder of Iraqi civilians and of obstruction of justice the only thing he was convicted of was posing in a photo with the dead captives body for that he was demoted one rank he will serve no further jail time late last month this trial took a dramatic turn when one of the prosecution's witnesses navy seal Corey Scott testified that after he saw Gallagher stab the teenager Scott killed the captive by plugging his breathing tube Scott claimed it was an act of mercy Gallagher always maintained his innocence and on fox news this morning flanked by his wife and lawyer he reiterated his view that it was a group of disgruntled fellow seals who wanted to frame him I just wanna make make clear that this this small group of sales that decided to concoct this story in no way shape or form represent Nixon to the community that I've you know loved and gave my soul to for more on this case I am joined by Steve Walsh he's been following the story for keeping B. S. public radio in San Diego and he was there for the verdict and sentencing today Steve Walsh thank you very much for being here you've been following this trial all along with your sense that this verdict was a surprise it was a surprise in the sense that yesterday when the verdict came out and he was acquitted of the six of the seven charges and all and all six were the most serious charges there was a great deal of jubilation Gallagher was hunt was hugging his wife they were very celebratory as so there was a a feeling to this today that maybe Gallagher would serve no jail time at all these wouldn't get a sentence of any jail time but on this last charge the least serious of the seven charges the jury decided to give him the maximum sentence which is in this for months in jail and they reduce two men rank from a chief petty officer to a petty officer first class that's going to have implications on the Gallaghers of retirement in fact we were expecting Gallagher to come out and talk to us after the after the sentencing and in but instead he and his wife got in the car and they drove away Gallagher was originally accused by fellow seal members members of his own platoon which in and of itself is sort of odd given that sort of historically tight knit nature of the sea organization they said that he is one up in a sniper tower and Sean and civilians several of them said that they saw him stab this alleged captive ISIS prisoner how did how did Gallagher's team robot those witnesses well the Gallaghers team said that essentially bays trade this as an investigation that was out of control that the turnout targeted Gallagher from the very beginning the lead investigator for naval investigations Joe war Pinsky he'd only been with NCIS for two and a half years before he got this incredibly high profile war crimes case the the also portrayed these seals in Gallagher's platoon Gallagher is is forty years old now is it in the rest of his platoon was much younger yeah I'm on the stand his attorney said call them in title the young seals so in addition to having those seals who I I guess their their testimony was simply not believed by the jury there was also this piece of evidence of texts that Gallagher had sent to a fellow seal apparently he sent a photograph of the captives body and I want to read what these texts say one of them said I've got a cool story for you when I get back I've got my knife skills on another text said good story behind this got him with my hunting knife how did the defense team robot that bit of evidence well I honestly they didn't I mean if you think about this this is something that happened in Iraq in two thousand seventeen they have nobody in this case very little forensic evidence but the one thing that they did have were these photographs that Gallagher sent out to people in the United States and other members of the platoon with him posing with the knife up to the dead detain me so in the end that was what he was convicted of but I guess the the evidence citing a for Gallagher has a tax that says I can't wait to tell you the story about this I got right with my knife how did Gallagher's team push that offer to they just not address that will be addressed in the sense of big said that this was dark humor they also have other tax where he he threatens to kill his his platoon yeah he he turned to the jury of all members of the military marines in a Cup and one seal as a matter of fact and said who among us has had not had their commander threatened to kill them at one point or another and lastly there was this this piece of us sort of a bomb shell development where one of the prosecution's main witness as this medic who was there says after he saw Gallagher stab the captive it was he the medic who then kill the the captive not Gallagher I mean that's going to do something here case if they if your your key witness sort of says actually the the guy you think killed it didn't do it I did it it exactly this was a prosecution witness not a bit and so on cross examination that's when the defense brought this up it played into their overall narrative that this was a sloppy investigation they didn't ask the right questions to the right people at the right time of course there were some conflicting testimony I one other marine raider who was there also said that he saw no stab wounds on the dead body Leslie was we did we know that Gallagher's convicted of this one charge of posing with the photograph and what is next for chief Gallagher well that's the way it works in military court this will go to the convening authority for final approval of this sentence and then I his attorneys seem pretty eager to appeal this decision they don't want this sentence of confinement on his record if they can possibly avoid it so we probably won't see the final outcome for a while in the meantime he'd already served eight months in the brig that was basically good time so he served none of this four month sentence so he was able to drive off right after the right after his case was over
