Me do it okay? I, remember. Him saying that a lot, so that's what the role using the flip Wilson defense just. Want to pass that onto you, crazy isn't it Yeah the devil made. Me do it which is why, I don't believe you know the acting out that we see on that video I just think it's. You know another that's. The. Metrics okay thank you I appreciate Chuck. Very much you know when you watch it it almost reminds me of of law and order. Episode, because it's I mean it's. So similar to one particular episode where the guy, is in the boxes they call it, and he's, hitting himself in the, face and he's he's saying wish I would die I wish it would, kill me and it's all you know until psychiatrist actually beat. With. Him and debunked this stuff there's, a lot of people to believe it I can't believe that there's people that are actually and. I'm not talking about, his defense, public. Defender their jobs.

People not, only here in south, Florida but around the country that are defending this piece of crap How can you possibly do that how can you possibly Say anything, positive about nNcholas cruise I don't understand. But then again I don't. Understand some other mass shootings we've, had like that church I forgot what, city was in and that's a shame, that I forgot but also in? The church in Texas And the, sandy hook shooting just to name a. Few there's at least one. Person in each one of those, that have something in common you know, what it is they forgave the shooter The most prevalent and I remember is the sandy hook shooting because I think sandy hook shooting was the first shoot and even. Though we've there's been a lot of shootings but that was the, first one in this rash of shootings that have taken it, to another level because kids little, kids were shot and killed one of the parents stood up in a. Courtroom asked to speak and she said she looked at the the killer and said. I just want you to, know I forgive you I remember watching that I couldn't understand that and I'll, probably never will understand it but, it just wow And. The unfortunate part with this whole situation as I thank you and I both go. The dishes dot over it's certainly not gonna end because there's so many things that. We're not prepared for There's a new study came out. Today says many schools in the United States are not even fully prepared for disasters The CDC found less than two thirds. Of school districts have plans in place to handle an influenza outbreak or pandemic or another type of infectious disease outbreak they sing overall roughly four. And a five school districts have plans for helping students and staff with special needs during any kind of emergency situation. Nearly three and four school. Districts have reunification procedures to reconnect students with their families when they're separated during, an emergency we saw that with MSG so how safe our. Schools in south Florida since this happened on, February fourteenth and the clear answer is the truthful answer is not much Because they're protecting Marjory stoneman Douglas high school Or what they call. Protection it's been six months since the, shooting the schools are opening on the. Fifteenth which was just about a week away Palm, Beach opens Monday Broward opens on the fifteenth and nothing has really been put, into place except for a few miners, ex like one entrance But here's the thing who's, going to be at that. One inference I haven't heard that yet if you're gonna have a volunteer if you're. Going to have a teacher's aid or whatever it is that person is not armed that's a tremendous problem and. The other hand if there's one entrance. And you have to say this is, the funniest thing one of the things. I read last night is that everybody that's in, the school that's not a student has to wear a badge to identify themselves, as a visitor You go into. Any hospital here in south Florida they do the same thing you you go in. You check in with security they give you a thing to where nobody checks it So what's the point of wearing these badges if nobody. Checks it now I will tell you that vocal regional hospital does something very good and very different than these, other hospitals and their daily visitor pass pass passers change color every day. So somebody could see you from down the hallway and if you're wearing. A green pass and it's. Red day they know, you don't belong there or, you didn't have the right past so that's a flag Schools Purdue that and that would, be more of a deterrent to some people but there's always going to. Be the person that NNcholas cruise it's not gonna matter if, there's one entrance one inference in one entrance out how could, it be one in one inch out if there's several different, buildings I'm talking about Marjory stoneman Douglas in particular I think that. The Palm Beach county school district saw, what happened, in Broward County and then fortified their schools in Palm Beach county better than, Broward County schools and yet Robert Runcie the superintendent says well we'll we're prepared, everything there's all kinds of changes in place You can't let you don't have to lock the doors from the outside their. Automatically lock well here's a problem what, if, a shoot against him. And gets into a classroom doors locked I mean this is just mind blowing that we were not starting school with any. Kind of metal detectors? Were not starting school with any kind of hand Wanding we're not starting school with any. Kind of clear backpacks and to me, those are the most important things what do you think eight seven seven eight fifty eighty five eighty five eight seven seven eight fifty eighty five. And if you have kids in school I'd love to talk to you to know how. You, feel as a. Parent sending your kids back to school for the new fall summit, semester Because if? I were a parent I'm still be very uncomfortable I would still be very unsure because. It just doesn't make sense that after, such a tragic situation we did not make major drastic changes to prevent something like this from ever happening again but then on the other hand This is my right brain talking to my, left brain is is you're anything that we can actually do security wise to prevent something. Like this from ever happening again And the unfortunate answer is is I don't think so I think if somebody wants to get in with a gun, with a high power weapon or whatever the situation is they. Will somehow, get, in because a lot of these weapons I mean again you take a Glock with a fifteen fifteen, shot magazine that that can do a. Lot of damage especially if you know what you're doing The same way these rifles like a are can fold up. If you, wanna, be really crazy you can put them down your pants and walk in and nobody's gonna know you, have it because you can't see it I think about that for a minute These are the things that a talk show host shouldn't be thinking about law.
