Dr ritchie a very well known radio talk show host in atlanta also a college professor amongst many of the things. I'm sure i'm forgetting and today we're gonna be talking about co the mandates schools mass and so much more. The way that this conversation will go is a doctor. Richard will begin with some thoughts of for two minutes uninterrupted. I'll respond with two minutes uninterrupted and go back and forth in that format for about a minute each will take about a ten second break or a little bit break and then we'll just kind of have at it and so dr richard. Thank you for being here and the floor is yours. You being trouble charlie. All right. here's the thing mask. Mandates in schools are water was inappropriate. And here's why first of all the vast majority of american voters actually support mass mandates for schoolteachers and for those who are inside of the school system But look what it actually does and mask mandate people that argue against it. They say this is an true general civil liberties but think about it. A dress code is that in a true civil liberty. A vaccination mandate. Is that an intrusion on civil. Let me bring you back to k through twelve education again. One hundred percent of all public schools in the united states of america require vaccination to enter vaccine passport. Already play not a two percent of private institutions require a vaccine in order to ten. Let's go to the mask. Mandate the mask mandate protocol is in place for the safety of students. This is based on verifiable science ninety percent of those in the field of science the field of study they say yes it actually decreases the spread of covert nineteen. But now you have people around this country literally rather than throwing on the mask. They rather throw fist. They're fighting schoolteachers. They're fighting those that oppose them and they are threatening to fight school. Board members because of a mass mandate. I have not seeing this kind of activity at school board meetings over anything except for these mandates but remember mandates are already in place school boards. Have the statutory authority to implement administrative law given to them by the states based on the construct of the tenth amendment of the us constitution. These school boards well within the constitutional right and statutory authority in order to implement such a protocol justice. They have the ability to say. Here's the dress code. Here's the vaccination requirement. Here's the teacher credentialing requirements and. Here's what it takes to to the next grade.

I chose violence to be the tool of deconstructing other people's issues, and it led to creating more issues to myself. So every time someone thought just because he's smart. He's soft. I reminded them every day that I would hurt them in some way. Like, everything about me was structured to fight with people to be honest awhile. I imagined that I liked that at the time really inside of me. I didn't like that. It wasn't something that I enjoyed.

"Welcome to let the USA Stephanie be at threes, and Melissa who made all thank you here. So I heard this story about your audition for Brooklyn nine nine, and you don't know this. But you know, I actually dreamt of being an actor one day myself. And so, you know, the whole thing about dishing like I know a little bit about that. And I hear that. There was a story about like each of you kind of going into the audition room and what happened. So what happened originally we actually destroyed for the same role? Amy, Santiago was written as a Latina character. So we both went in at different times. I never met Melissa before we book the show. But at different times, we went into Allison Jones office who's the catching richer original casting for our show. So yeah, we both read for the same role originally the role that you were reading for. They said, okay. Basically, this is like a good girl letty. Who's a little bit of a Brown, noser terribly insecure? And you know, is just a big pleaser that was the role that you were both reading for. No, it was originally. It was just she's a detective she's kind of the foil to Jake to Andy's Hamburg's character. And actually, she was originally just like very capable very confident like kind of all the parts of Amy that you see still now on the show and she's doing like the cop stuff it was mostly that. And she became a bit more developed all the nerdy and social anxiety stuff kinda came in. There was such a nice way of saying that that was I was I was quite terrible about that. I just said that she was a bit of a of a good girl and wanting to be brownnoser in like she's dealing with anxiety. So thank you. Really fall in love with your character all the parts of them. Well, and I, you know, I don't know if this is actually true because I've never asked Dan gore about it. But I myself was so nervous and like high energy when we were her the pilot and everyday changes on the script would come out and Amy would get a little more nervous and some of the brown-nosing withhold came out. And I was like oh my God. Are they picking up that I'm so every day and like making the character more me because they would have picked that up for Rosa two years. I was terrified the whole time. They are. But you hit it very well. The both of you go, and I guess actor says oh my God. Wait, it's not just one let the we can have to completely. Characters in one television show. Why I think I think that was you know, what ended up happening was that Alison sort of said, I don't think you're right for this role. But I'd like you to read this other role this written in the strip and Meghan Meghan was the way that Rosa's describing the pilot which is like smart, tough and scary as hell and then. Yeah. And then each of us had our respective screen tests, and they ended up changing the name of the character. And they changed ethnicity to and you're you're so lucky because you get to work with one of my I mean, of course, any Sandberg, of course, Saturday Night Live. You know, I'm yes. But but Andrea our oh my God. Everyone knew commanding officer captain Ray, hold. He's just such a great American actor with such heft.

This is I don't take joy in doing this. You know, I don't like or aim to be a provocateur or anything like that. It's just the truth is provocative were you the in your face combative young person in your college. No, I wasn't. And that's just not my style. It's just I think just because of the themes of what we're talking about. And the fact that we're unafraid to draw really strong lines based on in my opinion moral issues saying, hey, guess what? No human is a legal boondock. That's it not compromising. Health care is a human rights. Fifteen year old government agency that systematically and repeatedly violates human rights cannot be reformed. It must be abolished. You're talking about ice. Yeah. To me. These are moral questions because we are at a point in this country where issues that used to be not partisan at all are now polarizing you just look at what happened in immigration in this country. The most liberal president on immigration was a Republican Ronald Reagan passing amnesty in the nineteen eighties. Giving all undocumented people a path to citizenship immigration was not always a partisan issue. And in fact, the Democratic Party used to be very conservative on this issue. Even you know, look at how how stringent Obama was in his presidency. We didn't pass the dream act. But now when I go around, and I talked to people the number one thing that they always say is thank you for speaking our truth. Thank you for standing up for us. That's always the first thing.

"All the defendants ended up with long sentences. Oscar got fifty five years. Others were handed seventy or ninety. And the reason the government was able to convict Oscar at all was because of a guy named FREDDY Mendez Freddie was a new f- AL and recruit. He was arrested with the larger group and facing a near life sentence. He decided to testify against Oscar in hopes of getting his sentence. Reduced Freddie said that Oscar was a leader of the FALN that he directed various operations and taught him how to make bombs after his testimony. Freddie was put in the witness protection program for his safety where his believed to still be today living under a different name. After the trials, the FALN began to dissolve there were a few more bombings between nineteen Eighty-one eighty three, and there were a few more arrests. But essentially it was over seven years after the first bombs, the FALN's offensive against the United States. Government had been put down. In nineteen eighty eight after spending seven years in prison, Oscar was accused of trying to escape and is punishment. His sentence was extended to seventy years. He was also then transferred to a higher security facility where he was alone in his cell on lockdown for twenty three hours a day for twelve years. In the years of followed a movement emerged in the Puerto Rican community asking for a presidential pardon for the f. AL and members in prison. The movement argued that they were not terrorists, but in fact, political prisoners, here's their lawyer. Jan SaaS ler. They were sentenced not because of what they did, but because of who they were politically seditious conspiracy is really thought crime. It's agreeing to be part of challenging the United States government. But opponents say that the thought crime argument is misleading. They point out that the conspiracy conviction with connected to Twenty-eight actual bombings in the Chicago area, nevertheless, the push for their freedom, it worked. But first President Clinton issued his clemency order. Nineteen ninety nine President Bill Clinton offered to commute the sentences of fourteen of the prisoners, here's one of the prisoners on meet the press shortly after his release of what was going on, you call yourself a freedom fighter. Will you continue to use any means necessary to bring about and your mind the decolonization of Puerto Rico? I definitely will not be using any violence whatsoever. Commutations are offered to all, but two Oscar was also offered a commutation, but he refused one of the reasons he gave is that he wouldn't leave unless all of his comrades were freed. I never left anyone behind. I don't care what was get Phnom, whatever it was I did this. She never and tool by defendants were left out, and I, I not these last two were eventually released in two thousand nine and twenty ten Oscar remained in prison, but his supporters never gave up. In twenty sixteen activists started ramping up there camping in earnest to ask President Obama to release Oscar. They put together a heavyweight roster of supporters, Bernie Sanders, Archbishop, Desmond Tutu stars, like Ricky Martin and Ruben blades. Last year, we visited Chicago to get a sense of why people are so passionate about his case. While we were there. I stopped by an event supporting Oscar held at a community center. There. I met lots of Oscar fans like hallmark. It's basically every country has a freedom fighter Oscar. He says this Puerto Rico's freedom fighter Justice, South Africa had Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela is a really good way of looking at it because he was part of armed struggle, and obviously is hard for people to identify the movement of the liberation of Puerto Rico in the same level as apartheid, for example. But the reality is that it is a form of colonialism and he was rebelling against that. But as you might expect, there are many who don't see Oscar Lopez Rivera as any kind of hero. I would love to s people who support is release, say, if not a terrorist, what does Oscar Lopez done to help the Puerto Rican people? Joe Connor was just nine years old.

"Asthma. Hey, Scott, another crazy week. We've got North Korea. Yep, we've got Russia midterms, and of course President Trump and what happens whenever there is crazy news at our ups, we pop into the studio and break it down to make sense. So if you see a headline we've discussed it, it's the NPR politics podcast. Deadened thinking. Welcome back to let the USA I might yet in Horsa and I'm Marlin Bishop. When we left off, eleven FALN members had just been arrested soon after Oscar Lopez. Rivera was also arrested. There were two federal trials, one for us ker one for everyone else, but in both the f. b. i. had the same problem trying to relate specific bombings to specific individuals was virtually impossible that's former FBI agent, Rick Hahn. Somebody goes and builds a bomb and puts it down in less. They've been careless in left a fingerprint or these days DNA. And of course we didn't have DNA in those days, linking it to a specific individuals of very difficult thing. The FBI were only able to link one of the f. ale in prisoners, Marie. I thought to a specific bomb for all the others, including Oscar. There was no hard evidence proving they ever touched a bomb. So they tried them for something called seditious conspiracy, the it is to the temp to overthrow by force the power of the United States government. It's a rare charge reserved for violence committed in the name of politics or ideology. According to legal scholars for much of the twentieth century, it was mostly used against Puerto Rican nationalists. Seditious conspiracy carries much harsher penalties than regular conspiracy twenty years per count. Instead of five specifically, they were accused of conspiracy to commit twenty eight bombings in the Chicago area and in their defense, the accused FALN members did well nothing. They didn't challenge any of the charges and it was all part of a strategy. Their idea was to use the trial to send a message to the world. They said, look, Puerto Rico as a colony of the United States. And according to the United Nations, colonialism is a violation of human rights. Therefore, their interpretation went, they had the legal right to fight against it including by force and people who are fighting. Colonialism are not to be criminalized by the colonizers Jan saw slur is the lawyer. For Oscar and the other FALN defendants. When they went to trial, these young men and women, they said, look, we've studied international law. We know Puerto Rico colony, and we know that international law prohibits the United States from trying us as criminals, and therefore we can't participate because this trial is illegal. They demanded to be seen by an international tribunal, but they were denied. We were never in the courtroom. The jurors never saw us. Never, never. Never got human is one of the accused f- AL and members. We heard him before talking about his arrest. They found guilty when they sentenced me number judge McMillan, saying Mr. humanity, if I could, I would give the death penalty with out hesitation, but I'm gonna make sure you never never never come out of prison. The judge banged the gavel ninety consecutive years consecutive to your state term, boom, get him outta here. Get him outta here. And they threw me out of the out of the courtroom. I told him you can give me a hundred two hundred five hundred years, but you're never gonna stop the for Puerto Rican independence and the fact that a colony of the United States..
