Sen. Tommy Tuberville Shuts Down the Idea of Reparations
"Senator Tommy tuberville made some comments over the weekend that have really triggered the left. The senator was speaking at a Trump rally and here's what he had to say about the Democrats and reparations. Some people say, well, they're soft on crime. No, they're not soft on crime. They're program. They won't cry. They won't cry because they want to take over what you got. They want to control what you have. They want reparation because they think the people that do the crime are owed that. Bull. They are not old that. So now they're out there accusing tuberville a being a racist and CNN MSNBC among those that are out there saying, well, we all know that's just code. We know, well, did you hear the word black? Did you hear any skin color referenced in that in that sound bite? No, of course not. Because it's not true. Now you say Todd, how can you say that? How can you say it's not true? Well, it's very clear to me it's not true because we went back and again on this program we have a vast vault, where we store these incredible little audio nuggets. And we know for a fact that Black Lives Matter back in the year 2020, actually said that looting is reparations cut number 8. If somebody decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy's or a Nike, because that makes sure that that person eats. That makes sure that that person has clothes. That's reparations. That is reparations. Anything they want to take, take it because these businesses have insurance. They're going to get their money back. My people aren't getting anything. There you go. That was the leader of the Chicago Black Lives Matter. Back in 2020, those
The Rude Pundit on America's New Level of Blatant Racism
"Okay, rude. The same thing I did. You talked about Tommy tober ville saying they want reparations because they think the people that do the crime are owed that. You said, I wait to hear from the usual right wing holes how this isn't racist. Yeah. Yeah. I made the mistake of saying they said, what sound white do you want over the top? And I said the racist hole and they said which one, because we do have quite a selection this morning. It really is hard to separate them out. And it's the fact that, you know, it's like it's one after another. They're all just ripping off the mask to reveal the hood underneath. Just on and on. The thing with the thing with Trump telling teasing people about the N word at his rally. Oh, I missed that. Did I miss him? Yeah, he said something he was at his rally and he said, you know, they've been Putin or they've been mentioning the N word. You know what the N word is, and the crowd shouted back, what they thought he was talking about. And instead, he said, no, it was nuclear. That's the administration. So there's the whole crowd shouting the N word. That's okay. Yeah. Okay. We've reached another level.
Dinesh Is Joined by Mark Cash, Nephew of Country Legend Johnny Cash
"Guys, I'm a thrilled to welcome to the podcast, Mark Allen cash. Now Mark Allen cash is the nephew of Johnny Cash. In fact, he's the son of Johnny Cash's brother, Tommy cash. And he's a musician and songwriter in his own right, as I mentioned, he's a key figure, in fact, one of the most, I think appealing and interesting characters in long road home the cash families untold story. Mark Allen, what a pleasure. Thank you for joining me. This is a heck of a documentary and I got to say, I think what really struck me about it is the way in which, first of all, the cash family is full of just interesting characters, but also all of you were so self revealing. You just open up your mind and your heart and of course the Johnny Cash family home. And I almost felt like I was, I had a window into your family. I mean, I've been a Johnny Cash fan, but you know, I didn't know anything about the family, and at the end of this film I felt like, wow, I really feel like I know you guys, including you. Oh, well, thank you so much. First of all, I'm honored to be with you this morning. That was first and foremost, the honesty. You know, we had to be very vulnerable, we had to open up doors that we hadn't opened before. And just honestly, it was the only way we could do this. And so I think everybody was honest, you know, if it may say and yes, it's not always comfortable to be open. When you're part of this family, especially, but that was the only way that we knew that we had to be. Now, tell me, Mark Allen, you've got, you've got and Johnny Cash this sort of superstar. Maybe I can just start by asking you something that's not directly addressed in the film, what is it do you think that made your uncle such a superstar? Was it the fact that he had, I mean, to me, he has a very unique voice. In other words, if you hear it anywhere, even if you're doing something else, you're like, that's Johnny Cash. And they're not that many singers where you can say that they're instantly recognizable. I don't just mean the sound of the voice, but what he's singing about has a very Johnny Cash stamp on it. Well, you know, somebody told me the other day said he wasn't the best singer in the world. And I said, no, but you listened.

UNM Students Threaten Political Pundant
"All right, Tommy lahren. I think y'all know the time and Larry if you don't, she's a political pundit, she was hot, a long time ago. And I'm not talking about looks.

"tommy" Discussed on Code Story
"I don't like confrontation, so I never want to be called out on not doing my best. And so I think that just like that and the workaholic gene just drives me to keep going and going and going. And so probably one of the hardest things I've had to learn over the last couple of years is that that work life balance, you know? Because you got to be there for your family, your kids, especially when they're young, they need you. So that's probably it. Well, we talked about a mistake earlier, but a little bit different spin. If you could go back to the beginning, what would you do differently or where would you consider taking a different approach? From a technical perspective, I probably, the being on that workflow platform decisions allowed us to get something out to the marketplace faster. But I think if I could do it again, I would have tried to code our own things faster. Because we were really hamstrung by having two by having a sort of what we felt like a disjointed platform, you know, that idea of having a front end app and then a website that was completely different. You know, that was like, okay, in the late 2000s, but once you cross 2010, people just kind of expected a consolidated platform, if you will. You know what I mean? And it just was very weird to demo that platform. And it made it really hard to get people excited, even though the reality was, is that it didn't affect them. Because they were getting email reports and all of these things. And they never really had to go into that platform. So at the beginning, you know, but still it just, it was weird in people didn't like it. The other thing that I would tell you that I was another mistake is that we have made some decisions development wise. And this is one of the most frustrating things about being a founder too. We know, for instance, that people get burned out on notifications, right? I get up every morning, I have ten automated emails in my inbox that I delete every single day. I never look at them, they're there, and I delete them every day. And there have been some things where we have said, hey, look, we do exceptions this way, or we do notifications this way. And they're right, by the way. We only tell you when there's something wrong. You're not going to just blow up your inbox with stuff that's right. That doesn't make any sense. You're going to ignore it. And yet we fight that we are, I think we're absolutely correct in that that makes more sense and it's just dumb to like, you know, send people stuff that you know they're going to delete. But yet, there's been several things like that where we have dug our heels in and said, no, we're not doing it. And it has crossed us dearly. And we should just shut up and do it the way they want it so that they sign on and just let them turn it off and know that they're going to turn it off and it's just one of those paradoxes of development that people still want to manage everything out of their inbox. You know what I mean? And there's been a couple of things like that where we kind of dug in and put our foot down for years and then finally just said now we'll just do it the way you want it and it just cleared so much friction out of our lives. We'll ask question Tommy. So you're getting on a plane and you're sitting next to a young entrepreneur who's built the next big thing. They're jazzed about it. They can't wait to show it off the world. Can't we show it off to you right there on the plane? What advice do you give that person having gone down this road a bit? I would say, you know, having been from a bootstrap startup having, you know, we didn't really start to figure things out for three to 5 years. Like it took us like four. Yeah, it was like three to 5 years before we really started to figure things out in our platform got to a point where it was really sort of marketable and sellable and I would say that if you're making if you can afford to and you're not mortgaging your future and you're not putting yourself and your grandkids in debt, but if you're making incremental progress, the platform's getting better, you're adding sales even if it feels like they're glacially slow at some point. And you're delivering value to customers to just stick with it. Because everything takes longer than you think it's going to take, you know, two, three, four, 5 times longer at some point. And it's just keep battling, you know? You're going to get kicked in the face and just feel it for the day and then get up tomorrow morning and go, okay, why did I just get kicked in the face on that deal? Why did we lose that deal? Why did we lose this to a competitor? What do we got to do to fix it and just get back to work? Because these things are these apps, these platforms are, you know, it's just consistently executing and getting things better and nothing's like statin. You can always make everything better. You can always iterate through it, just don't give up. Because there are times when I should have given it. For sure, for like a million reasons. And I just refuse to do it. And you know, and now, you know, for 7 years into this thing, but now we're in a really good spot. There were a lot of times when like, you know, you just got punched in the face, and we just had to keep going. And thank God we did, right? Because now.

"Oh yeah, it was perfect casting, perfect casting. So, you know, that whole silly screwball oddness to it. I just doesn't quite hang together for me. And even though there are places where I was moved, and I guess we've really, this is like how many entries have we had in the looking back at the 90s. It was very hard to be a lady, you know? Yeah. Is the genre over, like, is there something like, can we move forward from this? Is there I think that's a question I've been asking myself as well. And part of it, for me, is like, how are we talking about the women who are at the forefront right now? That's my concern. How are we talking about Cardi B? Megan Thee Stallion. I don't know. Jennifer Lawrence, like all these younger women who are now kind of at their peak or reaching their peak. How are we discussing them now? Because if we're not treating them well now, are we really just going to be in 20 years doing the same thing that we've done with Janet? And with Brittany and with Pam Anderson, are we still going to be doing that? Now, I think it is different, I think for one thing, we have way more women and women of color who are blogging and writing for publications who are able to talk about these things in more nuanced ways than most of the journalists were back then. So that's good. I still wonder, have we really moved the needle much? Or are we just going to keep doing hindsight is 2020? Which is not useful. You could have played the football game right from the beginning, you know? You don't have to do this on Monday morning. Yeah. Yeah. I'm also glad that you mentioned the Tommy book because I share as having read it, but one thing that I think is worth noting and I'm not sure I don't know if the show the way it is set up totally was equipped to handle this, but they don't even touch this. The fact that he was arrested for assaulting her while she was holding one of their sons, a baby, and even went to jail for a few months for it. I think that the fact that the show doesn't, it presents their love story as just pure and beautiful. Like he's always like cheerleading her. And yeah, maybe he did do that, but also there's this other side of him. I don't know. Again, I don't know if this show was equipped to deal with that, but I do think that is something that just kind of speaks again to this sort of queasiness that I have with how much I also enjoyed a lot of it. I mean, we haven't even talked about sort of the Seth Rogen Rand of it all. But it is half his story because he is sort of presented at first as the everyman who's kind of ignored and you feel bad for him at first because Tommy is clearly like an annoying person to work for. Just finish this. So? You yank out a couple of nails. Just a little more complicated than that. How complicated can he be? Moving it at this stage. It's gonna cost. Cost. Would I say when we first started this job? Money is no object. Correct him on no. There is this like setting him up in this highly sympathetic way. And then, you know, his uncle milty and, oh my God. Nick Offerman is just, I mean, he's born to oil out of this role. I feel bad for him, but I don't. I still feel so queasy about that character. And I feel like the show is trying to tell me that it's okay that he stole this tape because of X, Y, and Z, you know? I don't know. Maybe, I don't know. I feel like it starts off being very sympathetic, but then there are moments where other characters, including his estranged wife, who we still sort of Friends with, played by Taylor Schilling. I don't know. He has an arc. Again, I agree with you. There is this weird sort of tonal shift that's happening. That makes it hard to love this show. But also, meanwhile, Seth Rogen is great, just kind of slumpy world against me, dude. Yeah, aggrieved, dude, yeah. He's born to play it, and he did have that touch of menace. I always like seeing him play a less likeable character. Likeable seems to have been his currency for so long that this is kind of interesting, even though, you know, I'm not sure exactly succeeds. So we've already talked about, where do we go from here? But is there any other show or project that you think would be good in terms of relitigating the past? Is there anything that you can think of that would feel new or different? I mostly want to see these women themselves in conversation with, like you say, women who are out there in that same position today. So you want to see Janet Jackson talking to Cardi B oh yeah, I would love that. We need to sort of bring it together. Actresses, stars telling their own stories. And that's, I think, where I'm most interested. What we want to know what you all think about Pam and Tommy, you can find us at Facebook dot com slash PCH and on Twitter at PCH. And one last thing before we go, we're going to be talking about another thing of the 90s, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And we definitely want your questions. You can email us a voice memo with your question to PCH at NPR dot org. Again, send us a voice memo with your question to PCH at NPR dot org. And that brings us to the end of our show. Barry, it's been so great to have you here. That was so fun. Thank you. And we will see you all tomorrow when we'll be talking about euphoria.

"tommy" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour
"Joining me today is NPR's senior editor Barry hardyman. Hey Barry, welcome back. Hey. Thank you. Nice to see you. So in fam and dami, Lily James and Sebastian Stan star as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. Yet the series does not begin from either the perspectives, but rather from the perspective of ran godier, who's played by Seth Rogen. Now, Rand is a contractor working on the newlywed couple's mansion, and it's fed up with Tommy's outrageous demands and unwillingness to pay for his time and effort. So Rand seeks revenge by stealing a safe from Tommy's garage and unwittingly stumbles upon Tommy and Pam's sex tape. He teams up with pornographer uncle milty, played by Nick Offerman to sell and distribute copies of the VHS tape. But they soon lose control over the operation as bootlegs flood the market, other opportunists try to cash in, and the tension reaches the mainstream. Most of the events are taking place between 1995 and 1997, and the show goes to great lengths to demonstrate how the Internet was still in its infancy. So there's lots of dial up tones and moments of waiting for a website to load very slowly. The series is also very intent on depicting Pam and Tommy as sympathetic figures and victims of revenge porn, something that seems obvious to us now, but was definitely not how a lot of society thought of the leak at the time. Pam and Tommy was created by Rob Siegel and it's based off of a Rolling Stone story reported by Amanda Chicago Lewis. The miniseries is now streaming on Hulu. So Barry, what do you think about bam and Tommy? How are you feeling about it? Yeah, I'm gen X. I want to dive back into all the 90s, you know, appreciation and rewrapping of these times. I like it from a nostalgic point of view. I think that the performances are in the case of Lily James kind of extraordinary. I think she's just wonderful. And I was sort of prepared to be like, maybe I think she's acting really well because they've done such a good job of making her up. Yeah, she looks completely different. It's amazing. It's like really, rarely far from Downton. Yeah. But she is actually really imbues this with real pathos. I guess the thing I would say about it is that it's hard to describe what this wants to be. It's like kind of a screwball comedy at first. Yeah. And then we're sort of in this nostalgia land and how female stars were treated in the 90s, which I am here for, but I also, this is not the first entry into that market. So it's like, you know, it's like hard for me to watch this and not be like, I kind of watched, I'd be happy to watch framing Britney Spears again, you know? But if you marry that screwball stuff with the Pamela Anderson was a victim stuff, which is absolutely true. When you marry that too much, you sort of end up trafficking in a little bit of the exploitation that you're talking about, you know? Yeah. And I know the fact that this is not like the Monica Lewinsky, Ryan Murphy collab, like this is a woman who reports say that she did not want to revisit this trauma. Right. So that kind of hungover it for me. I don't know if it did for you too. I mean, I had pretty much the exact same experience where I was very much into the performances. I appreciated the way in which the show really takes you back in time to the mid 90s when the Internet was still new and where even someone who was rich and famous like Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson had to go to the library to use the Internet. No good. That was amazing. What is this? What is what? This HTTP one. Well, that's a website they're making one for barbed wire. This is how he's selling this? I don't know, I really don't get it. We have a computer? We have a computer. It's in the downstairs then, but we don't have the web. It's being you plug your phone into. Okay, so who has it? Where do we get the web? Like they didn't know when they're like, where could we go? It's like, I guess we've got to go to the library. So I really like that. And I think the show does a really good job of sort of getting at that point in time and reminding us or telling the younger folks the younger people who might be watching, this is what it was like. It was like the wild west. There was no rules and everyone was just trying to figure stuff out. And the way in which that factors into the way Rand and uncle milty are putting this video out there, the fact that they have to put the news of the video and people could buy it on the Internet, but they had to ship it. All of these things, it's like, it's a whole process. It's like a, it's a challenge for secret thing, you know? Yeah. So I loved those touches, but at the same time, I agree with you, there is such a tonal shift between it all, because what I think the show is trying to do is it's trying to make us take these two people who in real life were presented as caricatures to all of us. And make them human. And I think it does that, or it doesn't at least deny how kind of weird they are because I think there's a way to say that they're human, but also say these people were also kind of weird. They got married after four days of knowing each other. That whole licking the face, the atmosphere at the club. The first time they meet at the club is just kind of, I think it's actually like a really fun sequence. The way that is shot and edited, it's like great. And it's very like, it was like the reason that I was reading Us Weekly in the 90s. Like I wanted to see those that was something about it that really brought me back as like a person flipping through magazines. Yeah, it definitely had that tabloid quality, but wanting to approach it with more substance. But at the end of the day, there's so many scenes where we are, if not seeing clips of the tape or like the reenactment of the tape, we are hearing it and we are over and over and I just keep thinking, well, okay, isn't this just in some ways reiterating or re exploiting her again in a way? All over again. So I think that it has noble intentions and there's so many scenes where you are seeing the perspective of both of these characters. And Tommy Lee, he's still treated as a victim sort of because there are moments where he gets upset when people are like, yeah, this is your best thing. You've done since your last album. Right. And he's like, we haven't had a hit in so long. I know. So there's like a little bit of an star is born thing going on there too, because pale Anderson is supposed to be shooting up with Baywatch and hopefully getting a movie career. But there are lots of scenes where her character is saying like, this is different for you, they're out to get me and they think that just because I flaunt my body that I also wanted this tape out and that's not the case. I'm on that tape just the same as you. But this is worse for me. I mean, this is way worse. How is this worse for you? Why? 'cause of your big career? There's so much bigger than mine. What tummy? It's not because of my big career. It's because I'm a woman. People are gonna think you're cool for this. Me, I'm gonna get looked at like a slut by the whole world. That's ridiculous. And so it's an interesting balance, and it's a little bit less clear cut, I think, than something like impeachment. Right. Obviously, Ryan Murphy has made an art of the genre. And, you know, I watched the OJ one and the Versace one and the Monica one, and I think they're all very interesting and a varying quality, right? But I guess the thing that I want is that I want the person at the center to have decided that they want to process that trauma. So like, you know, Monica Lewinsky has made a career of reaching out to other people who are, you know what I mean? And then the other thing about it, and I don't know, I will say, I may be one of maybe only 5 people at NPR that has read Tommy Lee biography Tommy land. Yeah. Some of the source material clearly came from Tommy land, which is the biography. And some of it came from this Rolling Stone article. And one of those is not like the other. Yeah. Exactly. And so some of that is just some basic, when you look at a narrative, you want to make sure that you've sewn the narrative together. There's a moment where, because this is direct from the autobiography where Tommy Lee has a conversation with his penis. Here, voiced by Jason mintz..

"I think you never stop looking at how to get better looking at ways to improve thinking of the next thing and striving for more. When I was a kid, I probably didn't picture that. I felt like professional golfers in the best ones always had it so figured out and the reality is you're always looking for more and as always questions that are unanswered and I think that was probably the biggest difference. You can go back in time and tell a young Tommy Ladd anything. You can pick your age. It's gotta be golf related. It can't just be, you know, buy some Apple stock or something like that. What age would you go back to and what would you say? I would probably tell myself this very young but then if I was that younger probably won't take it in, but I would say there is never the end of the story good or bad, whatever the result you wake up the next day and you're the same goal for that has to do the same things that you thought you had to do the day before. That would be my biggest thing. You get one round to play in England, where are you playing it? I would play it, I would play it at four and behold the course that I grew up at and it would be with my dad and my kids and fennel. We didn't talk enough Pheno on this table for the next one. So that guy's the absolute mad. So Tommy really appreciate your time man. I hope you have a great new year. And a great 22 2022 season and look forward to catching up when we see you again soon. No, that was great. Thanks for stuffing me with all the great questions. Enjoy the bad take characters. Thank you, man. Thank you very much. Be the right club today. That's better than most. How about in that is better than most. Better than most. Expect anything different?.

And then when i'm the guy that drops them off so that is waking people up getting them yelling at everybody gotta did and once. I finally get them out of the bed and get them on their way. I can get back home and start my day. So that's how i get. My day started with these kids but As soon as i drop them off on back to the house i'm in the office and figuring out what the what we gotta do today so When my wife called me crazy. I have two different businesses so i have to kind of manage my own time and my own self or figure out which business needs attention right now so. It's all a self disciplined sort of thing you know You gotta be able to wake up. Tell yourself what you gotta do and then actually do it. Which sounds very cliche in easy to do. But it's a lot of a lot of distractions in the world. Especially when you're on your on your self-propelled you have a boss named to so to say look you've got to do this. No that's not which is You know a gift and a curse sometimes because you know you can just toast sometimes but then at the same time when there's no money coming in who's gonna kick your butt you gotta keep your own yet really gonna be your own self motivator. You've talked about taking chances. And not love to talk about some of the chances that you've taken that bain For judas. I guess you'd call it non one being cool heads.

When i had the idea like i said i played a little college basketball so I used to always try to drape a towel on my head during during after games as a way to like you know keep myself cool ku'damm yep and so what i quickly found out is that you know like you've already found out towels. Don't stay on your head very well. You try to do that so My senior college. I got together with a few designers and a few people and told them my idea. And then we got to work on figuring out how to make a product like that so Had some interns and the apparel textile department. We started to make some prototypes and a few prototypes later. We had a product that we've been pretty happy.

So liezl tommy is the director of respect and we talked really i think. The day after the premier. It's in theaters now. She's a an amazing director. Very smart and i enjoyed talking to her. So this is that the guy the prop guidon set me up with the guitar in my hotel room that guitar it got lost somewhere. He told me it got stolen. Lost about it. You don't know about it not hear that story. Well it's a big story. I don't think a of them were very expensive guitars. They were they were They they look the period but they weren't like custom shop guitars but It somehow got disappeared between my room. And wherever i don't know what happened to it was upsetting very upsetting and my looking at one of them right now. No i wouldn't take that one. No so last night was very exciting. I thought did you.

"Of teeth when it's like hey we're bringing in eighty one millimeter mortars and one twenty millimeter mortars and. We're going to have vehicles. People were losing their minds. Ray and just simple stuff like that just kind of really getting the organization to to think about the future and stuff like that was was interesting either during that timeframe. It's money that you You mentioned in that way. Because don't we face that. Even i mean guys listening to this or gals. Whatever people have ended. This podcast will be saying the same thing about. I'm a god. I'm hearing you know. Tommy talk about a period of time where people are gnashing of teeth because of change going on around them and not being able to adjust and yet we see that every day in the army so for those of us who've been around for a long time. It's like it's going to happen you know and we're going to get through it and is probably gonna happen again. Well you know. It's like some of your podcast. Rose listened to him. We talked about that and stuff. And it's all you know folks who came in two thousand fifteen. They're like well. It's the new army and it's like it's always the new arm forty or nineteen forty four point two ho you know from second ranger battalion new. You know new army. It's always gonna be the new army and there's ups and downs. You know you can argue. Whether we're we're up or down you know right now. I think we're down opinion and a lot of respects because our eyes off the ball for a lot of reasons but It's always going to be changing and it's always going to be adapted and there's going to be highs and lows. You know it is what it is you know it was the ranger battalion when i was in better than now depends on what they're doing. I think if it was out the field if retreat type mission i think the ranger battalions of the eighties. Probably would yeah. You know outperform. Some of the guys. I saw you know during the global war on terrorism. They're very urban focused. Right and i had the opportunity to couple companies from ranger tunes out in the field and i saw them. Do some stuff can out away from the urban environment. That's i'm maybe not super sound. But by the same token i watched a range of retain ripped down you. Know objective is is some of them have special missions units and it better in many ways right in kenner their fire and fury and stuff like that. So it's it just depends right as long as you always kind of consistently trying to be the best you can so i've never been one to be like well. I was here and it was better. It's like whatever exactly right like you're better what you did. But that's not my mission. I like a lot of my buddies world enough now that we look back. We like talk to the guys that are in iraq. It's not real ranger and you know now. We're the ones national teeth. But i think. I don't know what your mission is anymore like i. You're clearly better than us at what you're doing. You're not losing guys all the time like. Yeah and and there's only so much capacity right to able to stuff so it's you're better at something than another. You're always of interchanging it and it's why you always hear about the military changing missions. Because you can't do everything maybe we could seen indeed so much paperwork but whether they're still you know we know and we've talked about this past episodes a lot of people who are staying ten twelve fourteen fifteen years inside bring judgment either. In one of the battalions or headquarters. They move around. They go to different positions. They take on new responsibilities in different ways. They may be going from sergeant to betine headquarters s. three shop. And then they leave their and they go you know takeover first sergeant position and on and on and on type of stuff and not really living the abrams charter but it also makes it difficult for new people to come into new blood and i think you almost need that you need that. Turn because it makes the unit better overall get those new people coming in That are going to bring a different challenge that are going to bring unique experiences and stuff as well. Yeah yeah any unit but you gotta be willing to absolutely if sometimes group thank does does set in you know unless you're i've seen some unit that are actually pretty you know of inoculating themselves against the pretty. Well you know in the scheme of things but you're right. it's like anything you just. You know you come in the problem different when you're not just kind of sitting there with the same set of glasses on so again. There's pluses and minuses right like you get this folks. Stay there for a long time and you get people who just absolutely no everything inside now but by the same token are they. Are they really looking at things. Appropriately and whatnot. So how long did you stay at first couple of years. Two years normal lieutenant rotation. That's when i went. You know put pack goes so because you work with some folks you know. We're always kind of a of things i wanted to do. You know just as you kinda look through it and it really weighed that one right like hey if i could do this. I'm not going to be able to come back to the ranger regiment. Right size enlisted. There's and it's been officer and the ranger regiment. You get a lot crap. 'cause i always wore my ranger regiment. Dui even wise ass. After i be able to be like why are you wearing that. And i'm like is where i grew up right so like you know. It's my hometown right. We had to talk about hometowns before so you know it was really my hometown. Ranger regiments in my own town but The thing that was intriguing about the mission right was your team your cross trained and as a small team you go off and do stuff whereas you know even in the ranger regiment..

"Tommy and his supporters could maybe live with that if the original trial were even a little bit fair but it wasn't not even close in what way in so many ways in the documentary. They talk about how the judge had an ax to grind with tommy from day one because the two of them had been witnesses on opposing sides of a civil matter not long before like the judge had testified for the prosecution. And tommy for the defense. So tommy's legal team filed a motion requesting. The judge recused himself from trial which to me seems kind of fair but the motion was denied. They also ask for more time. Remember to review the evidence and get their own tests back and that was also denied. One of tommy's lawyers was in the documentary and said that he'd never been to a trial. That was so one sided where every motion was denied an every objection sustained. But there weren't just problems with the judge. There were issues with the jury to play. I thought that's why they moved to jacksonville to have a completely impartial jury. Well it's not that the jury was an impartial. It's more about what happened during deliberations. Apparently there was this one juror in particular. Who was one of the only ones who felt like tommy was not guilty and she has actually spoken publicly about how the foreman and others basically bullied her into changing her vote even like taunting her with one of the weapons from the crime scene taunting her. How like he put the gun to her head and pulled the trigger. What yet this juror. Actually fainted several times during the three days of deliberation and was under so much stress about the whole thing. That about halfway through to the judge authorized her doctor to prescribe her medication. Which turned out to be valium. She says it was after. She took the valium that she changed her. Vote from not guilty to guilty That feels scotch. Tommy's team didn't know the full extent of all of this until much later when a few of the jurors went public but at the time they were hearing like whispers of things that weren't right so they actually filed a request to the judge to interview members of the jury and find out what had happened but not only to the judge denied that request but he filed an injunction forbidding the team to ever speak to anyone on that jury. So that's just a couple of examples. There is so much crap with this case. It would be impossible for me to walk you through every single detail. In one episode the tampa bay times turned it into a whole podcast series like literally. There is that much and it's worth a listen if you're looking for something to binge the summer so where do things that now today in twenty twenty one things sit exactly where they always have with tommy on death row pleading for a chance to test the evidence and with the prosecution continually blocking his ability to make that happen and listen..

"Is tommy the one lying the jury deliberates for three days before finding tommy guilty on all four counts of first degree murder two weeks later. They're back for sentencing and while the jury recommends life in prison for all four convictions. The judge overrides that recommendation. And actually sentences tommy to death. Oh can they do that. I wouldn't say it's a widely supported practice but yeah absolutely in the years. After tommy's team appeals many times on many different grounds with those appeals or always denied execution dates are set but then cancelled because of a last minute appeal in two thousand one. After years of fighting tommy's team finally gets the courts to agree to run some dna tests. The evidence from the scene which you know obviously weren't available back in the day specifically. He wants them to run tests on the fabric from the clothing. That tommy was wearing that night. Tommy says the dna on his shirt will prove that. The blood doesn't belong to his father-in-law but didn't estates tests. Already show it was the father-in-law's blood what the state's testing showed was that. The blood on the shirt was type. A and that perry edwards had taibbi blood but three of the victims had taipei blood. Perry unicef and charlie so what he's saying. If it's charlie proves that he's not the killer because it makes more sense for him to have the purpose blood on him pretty much but more than that. It proves that he wasn't the one who had that violent struggle with perry because remember the dude fought hard and was beaten severely. The theory has always been whoever killed. Perry would likely have his blood on them and sure enough when they run the tests. They don't find perry's blood on tommy shirt they find charlie's blood but you want to know who did have perry's blood on their clothes. Charlie mays and as far as i can tell based on my research. This is the first time. Charlie's clothing is ever tested ever even with the blood all over his shoes and his pants Even with all that blood. The prosecution says that the presence of perry's blood on charlie's close isn't enough to establish him as the killer and that the absence of perry's blood on the four little squares of fabric tommy's team was allowed to test. That doesn't prove tommy's not the killer's blood could have just like missed those spots a case. So why don't they test all of it. Then that's the big question that's always been the big question. Why don't they just test it all. And that's what tommy wants. That's what he's been fighting all this time for. Honestly it seems like a no brainer to me especially in a case where the guilt of someone on death row is being called into question and this happened in the seventies. there are way more advanced tests available. That weren't available back then. Yeah well the way. I understand it with post conviction. Dna testing it's that it's not just about having this pile of physical evidence and the technology detested. The judge has to believe that the results of those tests could change the outcome of a trial. So it's not like in a sexual assault case where dna from a rape. Kit would be pretty definitive. It would prove whether or not a person was even there. We already know that tommy was there. We already know that he fired at least two guns right in the case against him. The one that the jury decided was worth conviction. Had more to do with testimony from felton. Thomas edward williams than with physical evidence at the scene and as the prosecutor said in an interview for the blood and truth podcast series. Dna on tommy shirt doesn't change edward or felton's testimony and therefore probably doesn't impact the outcome of the original trial. And you know i think..

Back and solvable team is going to take you behind the scenes to show you how that happened but when no one ever expected when they went into this was that in answering the question of who baby doe wise it would open up an even bigger mystery with even more victims search for solvable by audio chuck wherever you get your podcast and binge all ten episodes right now actually wait hold up. Explain to me how that's supposed to make any sense like anyone wearing gloves. Maybe at some point. So here's the thing. Charlie wasn't wearing gloves when he was found and obviously tommy wasn't wearing gloves. When police showed up that would have been like very weird but during their initial search of the crime scene. Police did find the very tip of a finger of a latex glove but the rest of the glove was never found. No just the very tip of the glove so explain to me. How that fits into tommy's narrative like charlie killed. Everyone then hit the gloves so well before he died that no one ever found them. Well this is an explain why there are no prince but i. I don't think the surgical glove actually had anything to do with the crime. So apparently tommy said he kept surgical gloves. Those latex hospital gloves in the store to use when polishing furniture and jen has palm beach post covered states that initially. Apparently there was like some kind of stain on that little tip. That police thought was blood spattered but when it was sent for analysis it was found to be furniture polish. Okay fine but doesn't explain why there are no prints on any weapons. I mean some of them actually belonged to tami right. Yeah of the eight guns in total all were presumed to belong to tommy but two of the five founded the senior. The bodies don't officially trace back to anyone now. Edward eventually told police that he recognized those two as black market guns that he got for. Tommy at tommy's request six months before the murders of tommy denies that. Okay but guns don't just float with an air and show elva crime scenes. Why are there. No prince yes. This is one of the things that i think makes. Tommy look bad. If charlie came in and shot. Everyone if charlie wasn't wearing gloves. Why aren't charlie's prints on any of the weapons. If tommy grabbed a gun from his office in defense to shoot charlie. Why aren't his prints on that gun. Exactly i mean it makes him look bad. But that's the thing about this case. It's not just tommy story. That doesn't make sense. None of what felton edwards say makes sense to me either like none of it is like you said the whole thing is either to unbelievable to be true or to unbelievable not to be true. And that's more or less with the jury has to decide. When tommy's trial comes to a close at the end of june nineteen seventy-six are felton and edward. Both lying about what happened that night..

"Felon lease seven fifty five eight o'clock right around the same time. Charlie and tommy go inside the store. Were charlie ends up dead shortly after. And what about the other witness edward. Where does he fit into all of this so police after he killed. Charlie tommy goes back to his house to meet edward and they drive in edwards truck to the store and park in the back lot based on edward statement to police. Tommy tries to kill him between eight. Forty eight fifty then at nine eighteen. That's when tommy calls the judges christmas party and asked the police come like help him. Okay i guess what. I don't get as weibring edward into this at all like. Yeah if you're going with the police theory and tommy did this. Why go out of your way to bring in another person into this whole narrative. I mean you have the guys you set up for it. Why go through the trouble of leaving this crime scene for someone to discover on accident you're potentially covered in evidence just to go lure another person there. This is the part of the story that like drives me nuts. Only thing that. I can think that based on felton statement to police. He wasn't planning to be with charlie at the store that night. He was just like hanging around a bonfire. When charlie like roll up in his van on christmas eve and was like. Hey just cover ride with me. So by his own admission he was like an unplanned. Extra in this whole thing. Okay but edward. Edward had a plan to meet tommy to make deliveries that night. So my only thinking. Is that if tommy did stage all of this. He knew it'd be hard to pin. Maybe on one person so he could have been thinking that he needed like two perpetrators so the police theory is at tommy arranged for two different people to meet him in two different places at the same time so he could pin it on both of them. Oh my gosh. I have so many questions but exactly who is thought to have shot tommy then and when police that tommy shot himself with one of the many other guns at the scene to make the robbery story more believable and in the polices theory of events. This happens after. Tommy calls for help at nine eighteen. And that's when they think he's making the whole thing look like a robbery gone sideways right okay and do police have a theory as to why tummy did all this..

"So after they fire the guns felton says that they left and went back to the store and once they got their. Tommy asked him to pull the switch on the electrical box outside the store. Like the main breaker switch that powers the entire store so felton says he did that and then they all went back to. Charlie had parked his van. Which is on the other side of the fence from the store. then he tells investigators. Tommy said oh what the hell all just crackle window so then. He jumps over the fence in his own store. Parking lot picked up a metal pipe and swung against one of the stores back windows so he broke the window to his own store. Yes that's what he said. Belton tells them that tommy was saying he didn't have the store key with him at the time but like still wanted to give charlie the tv. He could like have at christmas morning. I guess didn't wanna wait. Didn't want to go back. Whatever but i guess at this point charlie was like yeah no things like. I don't need it that badly for you to break your own window like this isn't making sense. So tommy said fine. Let's go back to my house and get the key. Which then they did and on the way back to the store. Tommy handed charlie a box of bullets and asked him to reload the gun. Felton says that once they got back to the store. Tommy tried to get both him and charlie into the store with him so they could pick up the tv. But thomas has by this point like with everything that's happened. He is getting like all of the bad vibes. So he's like you know. What hard pass if charlie tv so bad like go ahead you guys do it. But i'm out. He can get it for himself right. I'm piecing out exactly. And when tommy. And charlie win. He left so. I can't understand like i don't know if these stories are too unbelievable to be true or to unbelievable to not be true. You know i know and police. Just don't take edward and felton at their words entirely. Here's the thing. I think they're thinking the same to they actually send a team out to the orange grove were felton says that they went to fire those guns. And wouldn't you know it. They find a spent bullet right. Were felton said it would be and it matches. One of the guns was at the store that night. This.

"The other three victims in the store. Our tommy's wife eunice and her parents heree in virginia edwards. So you're saying that none of the local officers recognized any of these three people. Well perry in virginia edwards from georgia and they were just in town visit unison tommy over the holidays. So that's not unusual to me. As far as they'll like tommy's wife you'd at least expect the chief to know her because he knew tommy right but like. Yeah according to the book called. Fatal flaw written by philip finch. He didn't even go into that kitchen area where her body was found found. And in fact up to this point police actually had officers out looking for eunice and her parents worrying that maybe they were in trouble. Like they'd been taken hostage or something okay so before. He went in for surgery. Tommy told that chief that charlie had tried to rob him. So is the running theory. That charlie came to rob the store and was surprised to find this full house. After hours tommy's there his wife his in lies and everyone just got caught in the crossfire. That's the initial assumption. Law enforcement is making. Yeah and crossfire. Is the right word for it. Because aside from eunice who remember was shot just once in the back of the head. Everyone else has multiple gunshot wounds. Virginia been shot twice. according to finches book. One bullet passed through her arm into her chest almost exited her back. And once more in the head and looked like perry had struggled with his attacker wounds on his face and head and he'd been shot five times in total once in the left ear and once in each shoulder and then twice in the head at close range. Charlie had several injuries to his face and head as well like he'd also been shot twice both times in abdomen wants through the front and wants to the back. I mean that seems like a ton of bullets. I mean i think. I counted ten based on what you told me. Plus i mean at least once more because tommy dot shot. Oh it is a ton of bullets. Investigators estimated that a total of twenty eight shots. Were fired that night. From as many as eight different guns some of which were still at the scene so surely someone must have heard something with that. Many shots police haven't seen any reports of anything from people hearing shots but there is at least one at the scene to help them figure out when this all went down because one of the many many bullets fired that night happened to through a wall clock and when he did the clock stopped. That was at seven twenty. Four hold on. Don't you say tommy called the police Like nine fifteen nine thirty somewhere around there like much later than seven twenty four. Yeah almost two hours from when the bullets stopped the clock to win. Tommy called for help and this is where things start to get kind of complicated for detectives at the scene now is important to know that the lead detective working. This case recently did training on blood spattered analysis and so he's coming into this investigation with a little more knowledge than maybe like the typical winter garden. Investigator in the mid nineteen seventies like the training taught him how to read blood evidence at the scene. And as you know there's a ton of it spray and spatters streaks pools droplets. i mean. There's blood pretty much covering this entire crime scene from one end of the store to the other..
