The Story of "Cocaine Bear" Is Coming to the Big Screen
"Everybody's talking about the new movie coming out called cocaine bear. Cocaine bear. I talk about this movie when it before I was a movie, but it was optioned and when there were attaching and director and there weren't even actors cast, and I said back then, two years ago, I can't wait to see this movie. Because it's based on a true story of a bear ingesting so much cocaine that he died. But this story is amazing. The story of cocaine bear begins with a body in a driveway. This guy, Andrew Thornton, the second was a paratrooper, a police officer, and a lawyer before he turned into he turned to drug smuggling. And he was moving loads of cocaine into America from Columbia, and he would take his sesta 404 up in the air and make these runs and he was having a ball. But law came to an end in September of 1985 when police discovered his dead body in a driveway and Knoxville, Tennessee, and he had been heavily armed, he had on a bulletproof vest. He was carrying thousands of dollars in cash and also oh, by the way, 77 pounds of cocaine valued at $14 million, which was stuffed into a duffel bag, strapped around his waist. And he might have gotten away with it again, but his parachute didn't open after he jumped from his airplane, and then authorities found the plane about 60 miles away and that began the investigation. Thornton had the directed the aircraft toward the Atlantic Ocean, and he settled on autopilot figuring, I'll jump out now, I have all the Coke on me and the plain old crash in the ocean and they'll figure the guy who was piloting it is dead, eaten by sharks, whatever. But turns out he wasn't the only casualty. In his final drug smuggling moves, let's go to November of 85, two months, a month later. Some hunter finds a dead black bear in chattahoochee national forest, a 175 pound bear. And right near that bear was a duffel bag that had initially carried around 77 pounds of cocaine. This bear came upon it. And he got into the blow, and he overdosed. And as it's already later figured out, by the way, the flight path was, et cetera, that this had to be the plane with the drugs on it, and the guy that died and they put it all together.

Joe Burrow's TD to Higgins lifts Bengals over Titans 20-16
"Just as they did in the playoffs last season, the Cincinnati Bengals came into Nashville and knocked off the Tennessee Titans. This time by a score of 20 to 16. Bengals quarterback Joe burrow went 22 of 37 for 270 yards and a touchdown through the air while samaj P Ryan, filled in nicely for the injured Joe Mixon, carrying the ball 17 times for 58 yards at a score, as well as four catches for another 35 yards. P Ryan says getting into a rhythm early helped build his confidence in this one. His first start since 2020. If you can get into rhythm early, of course, is going to help and it's not only going to help me, but it's also going to help the team, you know, just eating the clock down, wearing a defense now, you know, keeping their offense on the sideline, keeping Derek in real and sideline. That's always a plus. The story of the game may have been the Cincinnati defense, holding two time NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry to a measly 38 yards on the ground. Jeremy kick over Nashville.

Tennessee head coach Josh says the game plan was to come out fast tempo so they could get ahead of the impending elements.

Kathleen Madigan Wants the Wheels of Justice to Move Faster on Trump
"Was going to say, you know, stuff that Donald Trump, we how many, how many years have we been making fun of Donald Trump? And yet there is something sad and hilarious, but also kind of terrifying about him declaring for president again. How did you feel about that whole thing? Well, let me put in the context of my Missouri and Tennessee, my friends that are Trump fans. Oh my God. They've all moved on. Yeah. They moved on to desantis. They moved on to Ron, because they think that he's like more presentable. I would say, which I don't disagree with. I think if we're going to say is which person is crazy, we're going to go with Donald, like which person you may disagree with everything Ron DeSantis says, but he doesn't seem like a lunatic. Yeah. It just seems like he seems like somebody you could sit down with and say, hey, a, B, and C and you're going to get DE and F back. Instead of Trump going, I don't care. I don't know. You tell me you're an idiot. I think they seem to be happy. I don't even think he really cares. I think he's just going to go over. I really seriously no kidding. I think at this point it's about merch. Yeah. He's become he's become a road comic. That's why now it's maga, because now they have to buy a new hat, right? Make America great and glorious, again. Well, glorious. I go, oh, that's going to be hard. That was going to be a lot of misspellings. I feel like a struggle. A lot of rally starts to say glare is. Yeah, I think it wants to do the rallies to raise money and sell merch. Yeah. Well, Travis and I have a dream that we could get the trifecta. He will be indicted in prison and run third party. So there are still, you know. Possibilities. We can have it all. Yeah. Yeah. You guys are very, very hopeful, I see. Yeah. I don't I've lost faith in the, I know the wheels of justice move slowly, but I don't understand how you can orchestrate and then say ready set go to attack on the capitol and then you get to run again. Right. That's why people lose faith in all this. There doesn't seem to be repercussions. Maybe there will be, like, my dad was a lawyer to judge at all that. He goes, give it time. I'm like, you'll be dead, Dan. How much time are we talking about?
The Power of State Legislatures
"Debbie and I have been talking about the power of state legislatures to address issues in particularly election issues. I mean, look at this. Look at the not just GOP dominance in all these states, but it's the degree of dominance. I'm just going to read very quickly Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wyoming. And again, those are the states in which Republicans dominate both houses, but the margins are huge. Look at Wyoming. The Senate Republicans 28. It doesn't surprise me in white. And the house. 55 to 5. 5 to 5. But look at Texas, honey, Senate, 19 to 12 House 86 to 64. So I mean, you're not talking about one seat or two seat. You're talking about decisive majority. What Republicans say in these states go? Yeah. Those.
CEO Nate Jones Talks About His Company's Xlear Nasal Spray
"Very interesting story here. I want to talk about how the Federal Trade Commission is targeting a company for trying to help people. It's remarkable. Nate Jones joins us, CEO of clear, and that is spelled X clear. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Well, hey, thanks for having me. Tell us your story. No, the story is I'm a founder CEO of a clear spell that are, but it's pronounced clear. And we've been selling nasal hygiene products for over two decades since 2000. And most people are familiar with using a saline spray. Ours actually has xylitol in it. It's a sugar molecule that is actually been shown to block bacterial and viral adhesion of a variety of bacteria and viruses. My father's a physician. He started using it in a nasal spray to wash out the airways of young children. In his practice, that we're having recurrent upper respiratory issues. And so we've been doing this for 20 years. And when this pandemic came along, we had a bunch of doctors that were using it for people with COVID and they called us and said, hey, you guys need to look into this. And so we started doing research and trying to find out what was going on there. And what we found in some of these studies and there was a study that came out of university of Tennessee where they showed that xylitol actually was able to block the SARS CoV-2 virus from adhering to the tissue. And so we started we went to the FDA and said, hey, we would like to do a human trial on this and see if it works. And they said, well, no, you're not a drug. You can't do it. We've tried many times. We tried to go into barda. We've tried getting this information into the CDC. And it's just been ignored.

Team Gallagher: Remember, Many Trump-Backed Candidates Won
"What do you think Yuri about the idea of Donald Trump's announcement tonight as he's expected to officially proclaim he's running in 2024? You hear me? Yeah, I do. I think it's great. You know I'm a big Trump guy. You know, I've been, I was actually the one person in my group of friends that knew Trump was going to win back in 2016. And I made a few key points here that I wanted to touch upon. Sure. I'm on the air right now. Absolutely. Kevin McCullough. You're doing a great job, by the way. You're off to a great start. One, two 19 out of 16. Go back, go back, go back and say that again, because I interrupt you because I don't think you can hear me as clearly as I thought. Go ahead and say what you said again about the vote count. So in this past midterms, Trump endorsed candidates won two 19 to 16. Yep. Two 19 to 16. Also, one key race was Colorado Tennessee. Michael Bennett versus Joe O'Day. Joey was the one explicitly anti Trump Republican running and he lost. Michael Bennett was not a national player. Michael Bennett actually run for president in 2020. And he was the first guy to withdraw out of 27 Democrat candidates running. So if in my opinion, if we had a pro Trump candidate or a regular America first conservative, that seat, that Colorado Senate seat, would still be red. And one more thing, just one last thing, there's a certain push to take Trump out to push Trump out by the establishment wing of the party. They're alternatives. Don't resonate with the base as much.

"You're like, oh, actually how that happened is wildly different than what I remembered. Excellent. One thing that makes you laugh and say, only in Tennessee. Moon pies are from Tennessee. And so even though we didn't go to Chattanooga, where they actually are originally from, I've never eaten as many moon pies in my life. And then my dad is notoriously hard to buy. Everybody who's listening. We've got listeners who are outside the U.S. and I don't think that moon pies are a worldwide for me yet. So you have to describe a Mumbai. Okay, so moon pie is like a marshmallow with a cookie cake covered in chocolate, like a layer of chocolate. To me, there is as ubiquitous as Twinkies, but I grew up in a certain time and place. So my apologies, if you've never gotten to have the delicacy that is a moon pie. But we bought a box, my son was obsessed with them. And then I bought a fancy ten to give my dad because my dad is really hard to shop for. He's never liked anything I've ever gotten him. And he loved this moon pie. It was like 9 men pies in like a decorative box. It was like the best gift I've ever given him and I will never be topped. So in our family, at least moon pies will always be something I think of from this trip. Funny. And if you had to summarize a Tennessee road trip in just three words, what three words would you pick? Music mountains and moon pies. I feel like you thought about that. Actually, because I met on the show before I was like, and we were stuck last night. I was like, I'm not going to go back and listen to the questions. And so I'm glad I didn't either, because I think a lot of my answers were a little more honest because I didn't prep them. Although it'll be harder for you to edit. Because by the time people hear this, that'll have all happened..

"University sports, you can always try to find a basketball game or a football game or something going on too. We did enjoy driving around the university of Tennessee. Anything else you wanted to suggest in Knoxville? So in Knoxville, something that we didn't get to do because of COVID, but it should be on everybody's list is world's fair park. If you've seen a stock image of Knoxville, it probably has like a gold dome, and we were able to go see it from the outside, but we couldn't go up in it because it was closed for COVID. But that was high on my Tennessee bucket list. And I didn't get to do it, but I know I will be back someday. And then also the downtown area of Knoxville around the Tennessee theater and there's just like a cool restaurants and squares and it just had a really nice atmosphere of this stuff is here for the students and for the people that live here and it's not here for the tourists that was really nice and refreshing after doing a lot of touristy things back to back to back. And then going to Gatlinburg is the episode. In Gatlinburg, we dipped our toe into great smoky mountain national park on the roaring fork motor nature trail. Which is like a scenic loop. We did see a black bear. Okay. From the car, I do feel like we got not our money's worth because again, the park is free. A real experience in that little bit of time. Then very easy to get your money's worth. Okay. Yeah. I did a ghost tour in Gatlinburg at night that was really cool. If you've never done a ghost tour, these are kind of a newer, I'm sure you have Chris, but for your audience, these are kind of a newer phenomenon. I have not. They're cool. They're cool. Okay, so here's the thing. If you're older than 30 and you can't really handle going out all night, but you want to do something at night. You don't want to be in bed every night too early. This is a good compromise thing where you're like, I'm doing something that's kind of interesting and spooky and dark, but it's not going to leave me so that I can't get up and do my itinerary the next day. So this goes to our there's a company that does them in a lot of different cities and they hire locals to research them and then there's also independent ones.

I'm blanking on the name of the town. It starts with a P. Pigeon Forge. A pigeon for chat. You could easily spend a week there. And then the Pigeon Forge has the Titanic museum. And I honestly thought, I'm not going to a Titanic museum. And Tennessee, I went to the Titanic museum in Belfast. I kind of regret it. I heard from somebody else that was really cool and they did a lot of the science and I kind of regret not going. So there was a lot in this area. It is a very touristy area because you have so many people who are going to the national park that there are now a number of things around it. And then, of course, you're also very close then to Asheville. On the other side. Exactly. Into Carolina, which we've done another show on it is absolutely where the trip as well. So yeah, quite a lot to do in that eastern portion of Tennessee. As well as a very beautiful national park. Exactly. Knoxville is not an unknown place. The university of Tennessee is huge and it is a very famous city. But of the places in Tennessee people go to vacation, it is not as popular as Nashville or Gatlinburg or Memphis. So I felt like they weren't getting off the path. We were having a slightly less overwhelmingly touristic day, exploring it. We did do a driving tour the city has a black history driving tour that we did do. And there isn't as much there as other cities, but there's more there than you might expect. And there is a giant statue of Alex Haley in Hailey's heritage square because he lived there and roots is one of the most famous works from that time period..

"Come to talk to us about road tripping in the state of Tennessee, Stephanie, welcome back to the show. Thank you. Yeah, it's a little different than Bulgaria and Serbia where we've talked about before. Well, your life is a little different than it was. You were still a single last time we talked and it didn't have a toddler. So much as a lot is different. And I think, you know, I'm sure a lot of your listeners have turned from international travel to really exploring America or Canada or wherever they happen to be domestically based and that's something that we did out of necessity, but also we ended up realizing that there was so much more here and as soon even when we could start traveling internationally again we have kept diving into new states and really enjoying America. It's a pretty cool country. I'm a fan of international travel, but I am also a huge fan of taking a road trip in the U.S.. I think it was just because it was the only type of travel I did for so long that I was like, and then I only did Europe and stuff based that you could easily do for basement Europe. So now I'm back and I'm really loving this. And yeah, the first place we went when we came back was a big road trip around the south and we spent ten days in Tennessee. And I was like, oh yeah, I love to see. We used to go here when I was a kid. I love the state of Tennessee. It's a really fun and it was a cool place to introduce my husband to for the first time. Because he's not from the states and he had only seen really Oklahoma up to that point. So it was a cool way to start him on a this is how you road trip America. Pass. That now he's quite good at 25 seats later. Excellent. And why should someone go to Tennessee? As far as food, it's one of the best food states. I mean, a lot of states can lay claim to great food states. But Tennessee has multiple kinds of cuisine that's really great. So obviously there's barbecue. And Memphis barbecue is different than Nashville barbecue. And then you have famous food items that kind of fall into those categories like Nashville hot chicken. But then you also have just traditional southern cuisine outside of barbecue, which is wonderful. And then a former quizzing that I didn't know much about until the strip and still am not an expert on it, but I hadn't really thought of before and more excited to dive in every time we go back is Appalachian cuisine and what you find in eastern Tennessee is slightly different than what you find in western Tennessee. And then also whisky. My husband is a whisky drinker. And so that was fun. It was doing some whisky stuff. And it was just a lot there culinarily, and he is the chef, so that was nice for us. And then there's a lot of history. There's a lot of good history. There's a lot of dark history, so you can, you know, if you're taking the kids, you can really make it educational. And then there's also just a lot of fun modern new stuff to do that wasn't even there. When we were road tripping there as a family, 25 years ago. A long time ago. It's not a place, like everyone likes to say, every state has it all. It doesn't have every type of Americana out there, but it has a lot of different ones and you can spend easily spend ten days to two weeks there. And you have Great Smoky Mountains national park right.

"Law as juveniles, remained behind bars. One of them is Edward pynchon, whose lesser known story in some ways mirrors browns. In September 1998, he too was convicted of killing a man in his 40s when he was just 17 years old. Publicly available court records say that the deceased man performed sex acts on a teenage pension who often slept over. The fact that a minor can't consent to sex with an adult, and the power dynamic that this creates seems to have been mostly glossed over a trial. According to Tennessee law, however, pension will not be able to have a review of his sentence until he's in his late 70s, or if he's able to earn enough good time credit after 51 years behind bars. If he is released, he will be a senior citizen when he walks out. The United States is the only country in the world that still allows children under 18 to be sentenced to life in prison without parole. Though over the last two decades, added to have been slowly shifting. In 2012, 7 years after the Supreme Court struck down the death penalty as unconstitutional for juveniles, the court followed up with another groundbreaking ruling. The Supreme Court today heard arguments for one of its biggest criminal cases of the new term. It involves potentially reducing prison time for thousands of people who were sentenced to life behind bars when they were young. In Miller versus Alabama, the court ruled that it was cruel and unusual and therefore unconstitutional to sentence miners to mandatory life sentences without the possibility of parole. Now, mandatory is the key term here. That is the court did not say that states could no longer send in miners to life without parole, but rather that such a sentencing couldn't be the only option. Miller also allowed judges to have more discretion and sentencing that included consideration of the particular circumstances of the crime and the child's maturity and therefore their potential for reform. And that's because studies have shown that the human brain is not yet developed before the age of 25. Scientists have proven that binders even use a different part of their brain to make decisions, making them predisposed to impulsive behavior and more likely to have trouble regulating their emotions. That's why the Supreme Court ruled that juveniles, even those who have committed serious crimes like murder that have caused others a lot of pain can't be written off as irredeemable. Criminologists have long collected data that shows it's possible for people, particularly young people to age out of crime.

"Was <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> <Speech_Music_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Music> <Silence> mainy, the Main Street <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> is many. <Speech_Female> That gets into your <Speech_Music_Female> bones. <Speech_Music_Female> And that <Speech_Music_Female> kind of <Speech_Female> attitude is reflected <Speech_Female> in the <Speech_Female> subjugation of a <Speech_Female> certain group <SpeakerChange> of people that <Speech_Female> live there. And <Speech_Female> it is <Speech_Music_Female> ruled by a kind of old boys <Speech_Music_Female> network. So <Speech_Music_Female> when you talk <Speech_Music_Female> about feeling <Speech_Female> empowered to make a <Speech_Music_Female> change or to go to <Speech_Music_Female> the ballot box, <Speech_Female> there's a <Speech_Music_Female> lot of baggage <SpeakerChange> in <Music> a city like this and accounting <Music> like this. <Music> <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> There's <Silence> this mass arrest of <Speech_Female> 11 kids, <Speech_Female> and it's like <Speech_Female> so astonishing. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> And you're like, <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> how did this happen? <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> And then <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> you back up, <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> and you realize that <Speech_Female> there's this whole mechanism <Speech_Female> behind <SpeakerChange> it. <Silence> And it's this mechanism <Speech_Female> <Silence> that has been <Speech_Female> just <Speech_Female> racing along <Speech_Female> that inevitably <Speech_Female> was <Speech_Female> going to lead to <Speech_Female> something like what <Speech_Female> happened <Speech_Female> that day at the elementary <Speech_Female> school. It was <Speech_Female> inevitable. <Speech_Female> At some point, <Speech_Female> this thing was gonna <Speech_Female> go so off the <Speech_Female> rails that <Speech_Female> this was gonna happen. <Speech_Female> But it's a mechanism. <Speech_Female> It is absolutely <Speech_Female> a mechanism. And the mechanism <Speech_Female> is <Speech_Female> that this judge <Silence> Davenport. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Issued a memo <Speech_Female> to <SpeakerChange> law enforcement <Silence> in 2003 <Speech_Female> that said, <Speech_Female> upon <SpeakerChange> the arrest <Speech_Female> of a <Speech_Female> child, they must <Silence> be taken to the detention <Speech_Female> center. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> This is <Speech_Female> pretty astonishing <Speech_Female> to <Speech_Female> have a <SpeakerChange> judge <Silence> <Advertisement> telling law enforcement <Speech_Female> what to do. <Speech_Female> That <Silence> is not normal. But <Speech_Female> she did it. <Speech_Female> And it speaks <Speech_Female> to her <Speech_Female> level of power <Speech_Female> and what she thinks <Speech_Female> is her authority, which <Speech_Female> is directing law enforcement <Speech_Female> to take <Silence> children arrest <Speech_Female> them, <Silence> <SpeakerChange> send <Speech_Male> them to the jail. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> judge Davenport <Speech_Male> is still on the bench for <Speech_Male> the time being. What <Speech_Male> about this <Speech_Male> mechanism you're <Speech_Male> talking about? The <Speech_Male> filter system <Speech_Male> that <SpeakerChange> helps her <Speech_Female> jail kids. <Speech_Female> The filter system <Speech_Female> was stopped <Speech_Female> by a federal judge <Speech_Female> who issued an injunction <Silence> in 2017. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Saying that this <Speech_Female> caused irreparable <Speech_Female> harm to <SpeakerChange> children <Speech_Female> that it was a violation of the <Speech_Female> constitution, <Speech_Female> so <Speech_Female> that has stopped. <Speech_Female> What is also <Speech_Female> stopped is her <Speech_Female> process for arresting <Speech_Female> children. <Speech_Female> That is <Speech_Female> a violation of state law. <Speech_Female> And <Speech_Female> that has stopped as <Speech_Female> well. So these two <Speech_Female> larger <Speech_Female> parts of the mechanism <Speech_Female> are no longer <Speech_Female> happening. <Speech_Female> But the culture <Speech_Female> is still there, <Speech_Female> and the people in charge <Silence> <SpeakerChange> of them <Speech_Male> are still there. <Silence> So does that <Speech_Male> mean <Speech_Male> it's less likely <Speech_Male> 11 kids <Speech_Male> are gonna get arrested <Speech_Male> for <Speech_Male> witnessing <Speech_Male> a fight <SpeakerChange> in a <Silence> schoolyard

"Okay, so judge Davenport isn't exactly getting appointed to the Supreme Court anytime soon. And maybe shouldn't be sitting on any bench to begin with, do we know how many children she's put behind bars? For the last year data is available. Statewide, the average number of cases in juvenile court that end up in detention is 5%. So 5% of all the cases that cycle through juvenile court end up in detention. In this county, the number was 48%. And that is astonishing. So that's like the smoking gun. And this is all happening because of judge Davenport. Is she appointed or elected? She is elected. She has been elected three times and she is up for reelection this summer. You know, this is a great example about do we know who we're voting for? Juvenile court is sealed. So so much of it happens in darkness. And so when you're voting for a judge for juvenile court, I mean, how much do you really know about what's happening? 'cause so much of it is behind this curtain of privacy. You know, the judge is incredibly popular because she has a rhetoric that this mostly white conservative county stands behind. Consequences are important for children, structure is important. So so many families have cycled through this system. That it in a way has become normalized because there's no other way of doing business in this county. Because the juvenile court was created at the same time that judge Davenport came into power. This has been the way it's always been. And so you have mothers and fathers who have gone through her courtroom and now have children that are going through her courtroom. And so it is traumatizing. It is not a good place to be. A lot of people talk about how horrible they feel when they are in her courtroom, but it's also the way it's always operated. There's never been anybody else, so they don't know. They have no idea what is normal. A lot of them said, we just thought this was the way it was and it would always be. So come summer 2022, it's quite possible that judge Davenport gets reelected. I mean, that's the thing. In Tennessee, it is so hard to remove a judge. You need actually two thirds vote in both chambers of the state legislature to remove a charge. That's not going to happen. Really, this is up to the voters. They have to decide they want a different judge. But this county has a very layered history. This is a mostly white county. And it is a county rooted in slavery. The ghost of the confederacy are all over this city and this county. And it is inextricably linked to its power and its success and you see that every single day. I mean, where this fight took place where many of these children live is just south of the plantation. There are still street names with Robert Lee forest, the slaveholder of the county.

Just minutes from interstate 24 in Murfreesboro, the center is easily accessible with plenty of lodging and restaurant choices to choose from. There are also marabout to major where's the buck stop in Rutherford county, Tennessee. Who's responsible for all these kids being locked up in this jail? Judge Donna Scott Davenport. I have always favorite quotes and court, but one is, may you? You gotta show up to play. And you don't show up at this next hearing. I'm gonna play with that you. And she's been the juvenile court judge since 2000 when the position and the court was created. And she oversees the court and she oversees the jail. She has an exceptional amount of power. And what's her story? She really believes that children need consequences. And she likes to talk about her 17 years of law enforcement experience that give her the credentials to do this work. Those credentials don't match personnel records. She claims to have been a police officer. She was never a police officer. She claims to have worked for the Department of Justice. She never worked for the Department of Justice. She worked for an agency a private agency that contracts with the Department of Justice. So there are lots of cracks in her story, but she does like to promote herself. She has a radio show on the local commercial radio station that she has had for a decade where she talks about her work. Everybody wants to take care of our children. We want to stop it while we can and try to get through to them. Does she talk about a resting kids? She does. I've locked up one 7 year old in 13 years and that was a heartbreak. But 8 and 9 year olds in odor are very common now. Or she'll say, I'm gonna let you be young and dumb one time. Children need consequences. I mean, they entertained at our facility is not.

"Is going on in this jail? The facility had a policy called the filter system. And this is at the heart of our story, and this is what was deemed absolutely illegal by a federal judge. They had a policy written into their standard operating procedures that said, we can keep a child in detention. If we deem them to be a true threat. What a true threat is or was was never defined. It was absolutely up to whoever was screening the child. Tennessee and other states have very strict limits on when a child can be detained, because a science tells us that it's incredibly damaging and traumatic to put a child in jail. So there have to be really specific reasons by statute when you're going to detain a child. This facility ignored that completely, and they just said, if we think that they are true threat, then we can keep them. So, jacori S was deemed a true threat and his sister was not. Was a school? Okay with this? The school did not want this to happen. The principal did not want this to happen. They did not think that their kids were going to be arrested. They thought their kids might get a talking to they thought that they might be trying to figure out if anybody was a victim or wanted to talk about bullying. No, the principle did not think that this was going to go this far, and even some of the police officers sent to the school that day to arrest the kids, were not on board with this at all. Tell me more specifically about the racial dynamics at play here. All the kids are black, right? Yeah. And everyone else in this picture is white. The woman who investigated the case who decided to take out the petitions and really spearheaded these arrests was white. There are three officers, like I said that go to the school that day, two of them are black. The two that are black are sitting there going, what is happening? Why are we here? Would we be here if this was a white school? And one officer actually starts to call up his chain of command to say, is there anybody that can override this? We should not be doing this. And the parents? They were so upset. You might want to fight. I'm not gonna lie and say it doesn't because I mean what if it was your child? How would you feel? I'm frustrated. For a while, police were telling the principle that she couldn't call the parents. I mean, the principle is supposed to be the parent in that moment. Because the parents aren't there. And the police are telling her, no, you can not call the parents. They will be called once the children arrive at the detention facility. Well, eventually the principal just said, screw it. No, I'm calling the parents. And she started call the parents and they descended, and they were angry and horrified, but also, this is something that had been going on for so long in the community that a lot of the families I spoke with said, they really had no idea what was happening in their children was illegal. Like it felt wrong and it felt messed up, but.

"It's leg explained, I'm Sean Rama's firm and I use Twitter. Mostly for the lulls, but sometimes there's really useful news and information on there too. And then on the rare occasion, you see something that just makes your jaw drop. Earlier this month, I saw one of those tweets. It was actually a Twitter thread from a ProPublica reporter named Ken Armstrong. And the first tweet read three police officers went to an elementary school in Tennessee and arrested four black girls. One fell to her knees, another threw up, police handcuffed the youngest, an 8 year old with pigtails. They're supposed crime? Watching some boys fight and not stopping them. Ken's thread went on and on and on to explain how this happened. It was a pretty shocking story he had been reporting on for a year with maraba knight. I'm a senior reporter with Nashville public radio. Today on the show, Mara buzz can tell us what she discovered about why children actual little children in pigtails were getting arrested in Tennessee. While this happened in 2016, the reason we're talking about it now is because a series of lawsuits have come in the wake of that. And what they did was allow us to crack the door open into this really secret place called juvenile court, and it allowed us to see this really ugly and unsettling culture in this one county. And the mechanism that was behind mass incarceration of children that went on for decades. The systems that created it and the people that were the architects of it, they are still in power, the culture is still there. And while some aspects of it have stopped, the people responsible are still doing their job and really no consequences have come to that. Let's start with this one incident Ken tweeted about what happened at this school back in 2016. On a Friday afternoon, three officers go to this school hopgood elementary in ruthford county about 30 miles south of Nashville. And they're there to arrest four black girls, ages 8 to 12. And they're there because of a video. It was this scuffle that happened following a pickup basketball game. It has a filter on it so you can't see the kid's faces. It's kind of like the hyper color, but you do see a 5 and a 6 year old. These really little kids kind of trailing this older kid kind of throwing feeble punches at him. And this older kids just walking away, like, you know, I don't want to deal with you. And there's a few other kids around one of them is yelling stuff. I'm in the other ones are just kind of like tagging behind..

Okay here we go so. Here is a brief overview of Ernie ford He was born ernest. Jennings ford on february thirteenth. Nineteen nineteen in bristol tennessee. his name. yeah who would've thought of bristol. Tennessee is in the south of france. Yes yes yes by the late nineteen thirties. He was working as a radio announcer at first in bristol and later at various stations in the south and after serving in world war two. He returned to radio announcing at a station in san bernardino california. He was an announcer a dj for an early morning country. Music show where he created the character of tennessee. Ernie He was hired by cakes. La in pasadena and continued his morning show and joined the cast of alive country show called dinner bell roundup as a vocalist land. From from there he was offered a recording contract with capitol records by the early fifties tennessee. Ernie ford had several country. Hits and a few minor. Pop hits including. I thought this was interesting. A duet with case star If you're not familiar with star her famous her. Most famous recordings include wheel of fortune. Rock and roll waltz the huckle buck and a song that you actually hear every year. Everybody's waiting for the man with the bag so he was pretty well known but he received his first widespread recognition in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. When he made his national television debut and became the first celebrity guests on. I love lucy. He played cousin. Ernie ford from bent fort tennessee target. Do ma'am what's your name handsome.

It's like lucy's mother's sisters but it's relate into youngest he's related to okay so they're not really related but they're not really related no But their classic episodes and he's fantastic on them and i think that's sort of a continuation of the cousin. Ernie or another cousin ernie. The tennessee ernie character that he portrayed on the radio. I mean i'm impressed with the continuity of going back to cousin. Ernie like you'd have to remember. Yeah yeah there weren't really reruns at that point. Yeah so in the spring and summer of nineteen fifty five Tennessee ernie hosted a daily daytime. Tv show that aired nationally on nbc. And so as he could tell he's pretty busy. Between the demands of television radio and touring. He'd fallen behind on his recording schedule. And this led capitol records to threaten him with a breach of contract lawsuit so he needed to songs for an immediate. Single release jerks. See those means suits. Those are means. Yeah now not now.

You have wet dust but just earth anyway but yeah i mean i guess it's still does strike. Let's not fight about old testament mythology with columns. Okay i again. My comment is they do. Who does what who somebody. Who's having a day it. It does seem like he's talking about well off people because of the second line. So maybe he's he is saying that you know. Some men are made out of mud. Because they're taking that mudbath. Have you been to that new spa on fifth. Oh my god. The mud is like so pure. And it like you know it doesn't. It's so weird because it doesn't dry out your skin it's so weird you would think it would dry out. Your skin doesn't try your skin. Doesn't very supple. Afterwards you know. I hear that you're gonna use charcoal. Why all of us. Coal miners have fantastic. Fantastic one thing that people know about us. That's right Okay so some people say a man is made out of mud. A poor man's made out of muscle and blood. Okay here's what i'm going to say. A poor man is made out of muscle and blood. As is a rich man as is a middle class. Man is various social and economic status of women. Everyone is made out of muslim. But i don't know what you're talking about.

I am made out of the things that people are eight no madman let's start okay. Don't may try. I'm a person who's made out of mud people if anybody's wondering yeah no me. So i'm a person is made out of people stuff and i'm real dumb. Those are the two things i want you to know about me and my back is strong. Which is a good thing but because my right here no but so say he's real stupid and the only thing he's good for i guess is lifting heavy things of coal. He's like all. I got going for me. Is this body right right. Ain't nothing but check this out Right i think it's just that i think it's i don't think he's saying necessarily what as a poor man he thinks of himself. I think he's saying that's how he's seen. Oh when he saying like a man is made out of like all creatures great and small come from the earth but especially the mud people tennessee ernie ford as a poor man. Who's doing this backbreaking. Labor society is seeing him. Somebody who's only value is is his strength and and his physicality versus anything else. So what are you saying. This whole first verse is him saying this is what some people say. So if i see i always read it as some people say a man is made out of blood of of mud but i think a poor man has made out of muscle muslim blood and a week mind and a strong body. I think he's saying some people say a man is made out of mud. But those people are also saying upon a portman these things. Gotcha these attributes. Well he says you load sixteen tons. What do you get another day. Older and deeper in debt saint peter. Don't you call me as i can't go. I oh my soul to bundy's dole do do. that's a real upbeat reading in that song. Version of it. This is so this is really sad Because it's i mean he's the company store was a thing where each like mining companies and stuff. They'd had their company store. And you would pay from your from your salary from your paycheck. You would buy stuff from the company store and you can have credit there right. Well not just that. I think it was common practice to be paid. In what was called scrip that mining companies would pay their workers breath and it was basically a voucher that they that was only good at a company owned store. Right i give you chucky cheese. Say it's like if you worked at chucky cheese and they only had you and chuck you don't guess though is that what would happen so yeah and then you buy groceries way but you can definitely get like an oversized stuffed rabbit. Yes yeah but it was or or or the worst pizza never eat but it was also a form of it was like an early form of like getting credit like they. I mean you would say credit hair and you could get into debt. You could get into that. And the only way to get out of it would be to like because it was like only the company's money like you couldn't go work at a different company right like pay off the debt. You had to work there. That's why he says they own my soul because he literally the only way to pay off the debt was to continue to work there. Then of course like you couldn't pay off the debt because you had to keep buying like food and stuff to live dead in the company store. Resum say the debt would never go down. Yeah because you there was. There was only one store in like one hundred mile radius and it was the company store where you owed money and a lot of these. I mean a lot of you know back. Then i'm guessing this is like from the early nineteen hundreds probably like this. This is supposed to feel. Like i mean probably i forget at some point by whole company. Store in the script thing was outlawed so well but i think when later than you would expect what i'm going to say is you know. There's a large companies especially like that where there was a specific resource. They were going for towns. The company would bill towns for the workers. And so the only way you could get anything or do anything was through the company. So you are. You're stuck there Right.

"You go out in the woods today you are show off or a big surprise. I'm always one for spending time out in nature and enjoying the wilderness. But you always have to be a little bit careful of where you go when you get up to. And that's the theme of tonight's fantastic story. Nowhere near as gruesome as the one. I told you on monday just the same now. My dear friends. I think you know what time it is. It's hump day so please sit back and relax with your favorite drink is. It's time to listen to down here. In the south riding horses is still a fairly popular amongst many. There are many different types of writing. But i've always been keen to trail ride myself. Shell writing is just what it says. It is riding your horse through trails in the woods. Mountains hills and hollows as anyone from around here. Tennessee would tell you it gets hotter than the devils not sack especially during the summer months that is to say when summertime trail riding takes place at night often we wait until full to begin writing because the weather makes it easier but during the summer we ride these rights are always time and a half as usually just a small group of us get together we all gather at the edge of the woods find the trail head from that we set out together for a long night of trout writing through some of the south's last uncivilized land. This particular story and ride took place in august three years. My father and i met up with our friends. Jr and h apm at a place known to the locals as galley hill. It has this name because the trail head is behind the galley hill. Church of christ and cemetry. Yeah i know it sounds bad already but this has been the only trail to this ride for as long as i can remember and it's never cost any sort of problems so like i said we set off for a long night of horseriding and for everyone but me a long night of drinking. I never drank when we rode. Because i wasn't of age and i was our designated driver. I'm aware this all may sound very dangerous. So even strange. But i assure you it's not at least not to us gilly hale is full of well-traveled trails during the winter but during the summer people don't write as much. The trials grow up making it easy to get lost or at least turned around halsey smarter than most folk given credit follow. They have a tremendous sense of direction and can see well at night. The only problem with horses being able to see at night is that in all for them to maintain their vision. It needs to remain. This leaves you without anything to improve your own vision while you ride a thousand pound animal and the duck who the middle of a wooded. No the only exception to this one may use a dim light with a red bulb and redlands for whatever reason which. I'm sure someone hit and explain. These lights won't make your night blind weakland aside from that and the only light we have come from the glow sticks. Everyone ties to the front and back of their saddles. So we can keep up each other easily anyway back to that. All night house came and went with nothing out of the ordinary happening as we wrote and covered a lot of ground constantly putting more distance between us and the whole trailers. I guess. It was around midnight when i made the comment that i was hungry and brought food to cook implying. I wanted to stop for more than just a few minutes to build a fire and eat unsurprisingly. I was not the only hungary one because we immediately stopped him. Within a few minutes had fire roaring and hotdogs roasting when we stop period of time we would always tie horses to trees in a circle and gathering the middle to do our thing. This was done especially at night for more than one reason. I because everyone to relax a little as we could all keep an eye on the horses together and made sure they didn't run all this had happened before and it's nearly impossible to catch a wild in the woods at night. The second reason is because host is a very large animals have superb hearing by having them form circle around us. It served as a natural to any unwanted visitors. Viewing are not after all. We were in the middle of nowhere in the woods at night. The horses formed a circle and inside the circle. We all sat by our fire eating drinking. When carrying i suddenly had the urge to piss so i stood up and walked. Had a few yards to the other side of my horse to go.
