How many times a pastor said. I'm almost done. And i believe the most amount of ultra calls i've ever seen his fourteen for fourteen That's not an exaggeration. But the the surprised me and ended up having good conversations with people out of it. I was the only one who said. I thought that christianity was for all people in all places and all times but There were a lot of people in the conversation. Just felt that Christianity does nothing for black people specifically so to that end. I wanted to have a conversation with the people who were black people who are in Doing the work of religions within within christianity itself to that end.

"Sixty W. J. R. there has been historically difficulty in prosecuting police in apparent brutality cases what seems to pass the eye test often ends up with police exonerated or charges dropped their charges reduced why is that professor mark ostler is with this law professor and former prosecutor university of St Thomas professor thanks for coming on with us my pleasure so I understand that from the Supreme Court on down there have been some rulings that make prosecuting police officers like this gentleman Derek children who is accused of killing George Floyd particularly difficult can you illuminate on that well it's it's really a matter of self defense is usually what comes up when we see a police officer there exonerated or you are not charged core equity to trial which usually going on it's that there's the defense of self defense that they were the the you know the person was trying to grab their gun or something like that that's what's different about this particular case is that we don't have a video that shows a situation where self defense is really in play well right I mean it is that which makes people wonder why was he charged with third degree murder and second degree manslaughter can you explain that yeah here in Minnesota a second degree murder is going to be for intentional murder and third degree murder is for situations under the the language of the law it's if we're someone without intent to kill causes death by perpetrating an act eminently dangerous convinces a depraved mind which kind of archaic language but basically what that comes down to is a situation where the prosecutor doesn't think they have enough evidence to show there was an intent to kill at the time the actions were taken but he was definitely an extremely reckless act that the person should have known what it isn't isn't that input in other states kind of with second degree is it can be you know statutes vary a lot from state to state in many states don't have a third degree murder statute the way we do hear that that is something less than intentional murder tell me about what qualified immunity means the Supreme Court came up with that notion in nineteen sixty seven which of course here in Detroit is a is a red letter year and summer but what does that mean with regard to police violence against demonstrators took center yeah well I mean I was a I was a four year olds in Detroit in nineteen sixty seven but qualified immunity is something that we talk about we're talking about civil cases generally that if you're going to sue the police for what they've done that they have a qualified immunity from that kind of suit they don't have the same kind of qualified immunity from criminal action by prosecutors can you explain why the other three officers have not yet been charged in this case yeah and I I think that it's understandable from a prosecutor's perspective that with the main actor Chauvin direction open you have the video that was immediately available that shows his actions that caused the death you can't watch that video and it not really you see that there's strong evidence on that we'll plus medical report came out the just today that said that several of them not just the private one but the the county medical one that said he did there was a homicide that he did die from rat act so yeah you have that as well go on you have that but the with the other three there's more information that a prosecutor want before they they charge those three indeed both to know that they were culpable enough that you can prove it in what charge to lay against them it's a much tougher case against them the the second show well is there not a some kind of sense and some kind of legal responsibility for a police officer to intervene if another police officer appears to be doing mortal harm to someone they have that duty as police officers and but that's something that affects employment in all four of them were immediately fired by the Minneapolis police department and that was the reason given by the police chief was that they didn't intervene you know in terms of the legal consequences under the criminal law but they're probably looking at in terms of charge is whether they needed the killing in the the language in the statute here is going to cover eighteen advising counseling or conspiring with the principal actor in here from what we've seen it could be that they're going to charge him under that statute with having a heated shop and would that be a manslaughter type of charger will ring them that would bring them up to the same charge that children's facing so third degree murder charge correct and it is it is it your opinion that they'll do that eventually they're just trying to make sure that they've got the case before they make that announcement here in you know it's also very possible that they will charge the three officers with different crimes that they may feel that there is one or another that is more culpable that they'll be able to charge me with eating Chauvin but but not some of the others the pain is there any is there any chance that they will up the charges against children yes there is in that's especially true now that we've got another set of eyes on it we've got Keith Ellison who is also from Detroit whose our Attorney General here who is now been put in charge of the prosecution and if he looks at the evidence and decide this was an intentional killing that as he kept that knee on the neck and saw the body going limp that he intended to kill him then he would raise that to second degree murder charge you know you said that one of the reasons it's difficult to prosecute police is that they claim that you know is a lot of self defense thing I was acting in self defense I would imagine if if I am Derek children's lawyer I am probably grilling him right now as to what you know tell me what he did to make you feel that it was an unsafe situation what now the video is going as prove certain things that you can't say like he swung at me because you have all the video but what he might have said and the you know and and some of the closer up actions were privy only to the people involved in that can you see a situation where a case will be made by his lawyer that kill people to understand what he was saying he was saying I'm going to kill you or he was threatening her he was screaming things or something is that any kind of viable defense they may try that I think it's going to be really that would be a really hard one to show given that video where you have the knee on the next rest in as is the victim is unresponsive and just continue to keep it there you know it can be if if someone comes up to me and then threatens me ani choke them and then there are limping I keep choking them after they pose no threat that's that's still going to bring me a criminal charge why why was he if he was in handcuffs is that not restrained me what was the the explanation just basically if you I mean what what what's the purpose of a chill cold even in a in a bad explanation what what's the purpose what's the justification well it's it's to restrain the person that the future is going to hurt others but isn't Hancock on hand cuffs of restraint absolutely and and that's the thing that they they not only had him in handcuffs and face down and that's why you're seeing something really unusual happen here which is that police chiefs and sheriffs and prosecutors and other places are are saying based on the video this was a murder yeah which is well what we've seen previously so having said all that is it your gas that when all this comes to pass that he will actually be prosecutor foreign found guilty of charges as severe as the ones that he's facing more that they'll they'll be some corner of plea bargain or some sort of lowered thing it's any any won't end up getting the full brunt of of justice I think that he will end up going to trial and be convicted of at least thirty three murder they may try to cut a plea on something I'm not sure but I would be surprised if they went lower than that does the eighteen complaints against him way into this in any legal fashion at all as the police department culpable for having him out on the streets with that don't stop on his record what is the number of complaints don't necessarily mean as much as what's in the complaints it but it's certainly something that that would merit closer examination they haven't looked at what's in all of those complaints except for a few of them yeah you've got one it's a situation where he responded to a stabbing the person pulled a shotgun on them and then there were several officers who fired you know that's certainly not the same is the situation that we're looking at with George Floyd a professor one thank you very interesting and and informative response appreciate the interview all right thank you bye that's a mark ostler there from university Saint Thomas there and and Minnesota law professor and former prosecutor himself back with more here on.

"And I wanted to get your reaction to it if I could bar repair is that the poor working class kids are in jail for all kinds of non violent drug the well convictions of one sort or another well clemency is granted I'm quoting centers centers here to tax you tax cheats Wall Street crooks and billionaires and and corrupt government officials is that sound so harsh but it may be accurate as well as well I think it is accurate and it's a truism I'm in a we we would expect someone like Bernie Sanders to point to the class issues that are involved here but again I think you've put his finger on an accurate description of the difference for example between as you say Barack Obama are creating a policy to try to bring justice where justice has not been has for people who are sentenced in very harsh penalties and that that has a racial component to it and then in this instance the policy seems to be the promotion of corruption well what are your responses to these recent pardons in fact we'd like to hear from you ordered we talked it initially we heard about the Eddie DeBartolo just to keep it local pardon your reaction of that I'd like to hear from listeners and again you can join us toll free at eight six six seven three three six seven eight six two there's a tweet let me go to you on this like a professor Oscar the solicitors as how was the exploitation of pardon powers not question when president trump pardon sure of show our P. R. pile well it was question I mean that I believe it was yeah there was a wave of criticism of that inside and you know in terms of people discussing whether that was responsible use the pardon power that discussion certainly happen you'll hear something that the check on the pardon power is is elections in one of the things is gone wrong is that when we're electing people and we're vetting them or decide who to vote for we never talk about how they do use the pardon power I've never heard that question come up in the debate if trump had been asked that I'm sure if I would have said well come on people I know I mean really it in now we've got you know a big debate coming up tonight and I'd be shocked but very happy if they asked a question about how would you use clemency I if you were the president and and that's partly on us we need to ask a question important point and there's also a lot of speculation that perhaps president trump was using the pardon of any to Barlow for political reasons because any of our lows very popular in northeast Ohio and certainly the president needs Ohio too well to win another election I'm wondering though by repair if I can just go back to you for a second and get your response to the Clinton pardon of Marc rich which is an infamous part in many people's judgment and it happened right at the end of his presidency and that's been also a kind of pattern the many been critical of yes and and I I always find that a bit disconcerting as well that guy as the president is walking out the door issuing pardons and therefore to mark's point about one check that we can use on a president who's in a first term in running for a second that check can be to to throw that person out if if someone to give the electors in more people the electric believe that he's it's easier if using that power but in addition to that president Clinton also commuted his brother Roger Clinton sentence for cocaine possession so there were a couple that were were quite controversial another reason another tweet from Michael this is I notice the media's lumping together commuted sentences and pardons trouble off for years awful go of it just twelve years since apparently because of why they chose wife appeared frequently on fox news does the Barlow still deserve the stigma of a felony conviction well let the question hang on I'll get a call around here from when Connie Jeremy you're on the air good morning good morning thanks for taking my call I just wanted to point out a a reader response I read in the times last night which really caught my eye our leader is somewhat of a spiteful person and it appears to me that that this could be a such a simple thing as just an act of spite against the justice department I'm doing a lot of their hard work we think well I go to mark Ronson yeah he made that explicit you know I mean he he noted in in the way this case double grave which was Neil prosecuted based he perceives as some of his own term mentors the the the four U. S. attorney in Chicago in in James homey so you know it's often is true with trump we don't have to scratch the surface very far to to find out the motivation the puts a right out there yes Patrick fitzgerald was also a close friend of James commies and I'm wondering you know since we're in the realm of speculating it might have to ask the question about how much the president's motives had to do with again with well the the setting things up for the possible pardoning of Roger stone or Paul man a fort or others like that some thoughts from you mark also what's surprising it did if he was going to do that that he hasn't done it already you know that you have you have several of his associates and and close friends who have been the in prison and he hasn't he hasn't freedom meanwhile he's freed these these characters like Michael Milken so yeah when people jump to that conclusion that well Roger stone is going to be next maybe but probably what's surprising this and that he might do that is that he hasn't done it already you know given that he has he has the advantage people like rubber Greivis mark osrs professor of law university St Thomas a former federal prosecutor in NYC is our next caller Nick you're on the air good morning good morning hi I'm not a Republican or Democrat I am concerned about being in general I it's B. over yours but certainly under the upgrade get that ministration of issues thousand oaks about nineteen hundred seventy or something so yeah into Paris but let the hardly anything even though I think most common they is probably political in nature what about that argument barber Perry as you look back historically most clemency is political in nature is a caller since I wouldn't say if as I look down the list of all the people who have or at least the most prominent people on prominent names of people who've been part and are are granted computations I it's sort of an interesting mixture kind of a rogue's gallery in some ways of people who are political and even engaged in corruption and that's both from Democrats and Republicans in the presidency and then then they're they're historical figures like Ford you know pardoning Tokyo rose and and Robert E. Lee for heaven's sake and restoring his rights posthumously Alexander Hamilton talks in federalist paper seventy four about the pardon power interestingly enough you know we went a lot to him for the impeachment but I couldn't help but be struck by one sentence where he was talking about should be the president is doing the pardoning as it is in this new constitution are Smith maybe should in Congress he said it is not to be doubted that a single man of prudence and good sense is better fitted and the Congress but I I have to focus their on prudence and and good sense so I would say it's a mixture and the other thing that he points to is a presence hard Ninos even gauge in rebellion and so you have pardon of Confederate after the civil war by Andrew Johnson your pardoning of the Vietnam War draft Dodgers so you do have this kind of sense of clemency and mercy and to try to bring us back together and somehow makes us to work together as much as possible but mark also lists we forget governors have pardoning power as well they do in in the way that's employed varies widely yeah we get any dissent a blue red thing that some of the states that are the most productive and efficient at clemency our South Carolina Arkansas Georgia where is my home state of Minnesota is is not very good in Vermont's not very good in it comes on a process and you know you were asking about this before the federal process the official process has been broken for decades it involves seven sequential stops mostly in the DOJ and right now there's a pipeline with over thirteen thousand hundred cases just stagnating in their in that is something that has to be addressed you mentioned the number of states in Arkansas Georgia the Connecticut South Carolina they actually have boards the try to decide something or make recommendations yeah could there something like that be put in place federally why not yes it could impact one of my collaboration ritual Barco at it and why you and I have to be push that idea we've actually met with the clear with the presence people with Jared Kushner to suggest that they adopt such a system in in you'll notice in several of the democratic platforms the embrace that idea there's a listener Curtis who writes pardons our presidential prerogative a pardon doesn't change the character of the person and a tweet from Kevin did everyone who is pardon donate to trump's campaign to a no the answer to that are very I don't doubt Breitbart does I I am absolutely certain they didn't all because some of the people that were there you're down at the bottom of the list we've got trainees hall crystal who knows who are people who were doing long drug sentences and we're committed prison and though some of the higher profile people may have I'm I'm fairly certain they did not he also says just imagine president trump pardon the woman who had a long drug sentences but at the recommendation of Kim Kardashian so again there's a celebrity factor there and shots and rubble going which was also on celebrity apprentice but as you as you and and we had a good deal of of the effect on the president because of his wife speaking out on fox news yeah you know I I mention that official process with the seven Chris sequential steps it seems that right now we have as the one step process which is you know from fox news the presence here well we will obviously continue to cover the server like a final word from you Barbara Perry on how the all this fits into well the whole perspective of the presidency right well we haven't brought up bush forty three now just and on that note by my count I see that he had about two hundred only two hundred total pardons commutations in his eight years in office and the most famous water infamous depending on one's political view was the scooter Libby that he had been asked by Dick Cheney as they were leaving office to pardon good let me and the president refused to do it he commuted the sentence that he refused to pardon him and I always thought that that was a mark of courage on the part of of bush forty three turns out that Donald Trump harden scooter Libby yeah so where do we stand in terms of presidential power as a result of this group pretty much where we've always been or is anything turned well I I think it does while some people quite correctly are concerned about trump's use of it I he's using it much more sparingly than some previous president set I think it is part and parcel of this a cruel of power to all presidents but particularly this one is more disturbing because of the authoritarian streak that he seems to have thank you Barbara Perry presidential studies wrecking a resurgence Miller center thanks also mark Austin professor of law university Saint Thomas and a

"There is so those remarks by a Bernie Sanders recently and I wanted to get your reaction to it if I could barber Perry that the poor working class kids are in jail for all kinds of non violent drug the well convictions of one sort or another well clemency is granted on courting centers centers here to tax you tax cheats Wall Street crooks and billionaires and and corrupt government officials that sounds so harsh but it may be accurate as well as well I think it is accurate and it's a truism I'm in a we we would expect someone like Bernie Sanders to point to the class issues that are involved here but again I think you've put his finger on an accurate description of the difference for example between as you say Barack Obama are creating a policy to try to bring justice where justice has not been has for people who are sentenced in very harsh penalties and that that has a racial component to it and then in this instance the policy seems to be the promotion of corruption well what are your responses to these recent pardons in fact we'd like to hear from you ordered we talked it initially we heard about the Eddie DeBartolo just to keep it local pardon your reaction of that I like to hear from listeners and again you can join us toll free at eight six six seven three three six seven eight six two there's a tweet let me go to you on this I could professor Oscar the solicitors as how was the exploitation of pardon powers not question when president trump pardon sure of show our P. R. pile well it was question I mean I believe it was yeah there was a wave of criticism of that inside and you know in terms of people discussing whether that was responsible use the pardon power that discussion certainly happen you'll hear something that the check on the pardon power is is elections in one of the things that's gone wrong is that when we're electing people and we're vetting them or decide who to vote for we never talk about how they do use the pardon power I've never heard that question come up in the debate if trump had been asked that I'm sure if I would have said well come on and people I know I mean really it in now we've got you know a big debate coming up tonight then I'd be shocked but very happy if they asked a question about how would you use clemency I if you were the president and and that's partly on us we need to ask a question important point and there's also a lot of speculation that perhaps president trump was using the pardon of any to Barlow for political reasons because any of our lows very popular in northeast Ohio and certainly the president needs Ohio too well to win another election I'm wondering though by repair if I can just go back to you for a second and get your response to the Clinton pardon of Marc rich which is an infamous part in many people's judgment and it happened right at the end of his presidency and that's been also a kind of pattern the many been critical of yes and and I I always find that a bit disconcerting as well that night as the president's walking out the door issuing pardons and therefore to mark's point about one check that we can use on a president who's in a first term in running for a second that check can be to to throw that person out if if someone to give the electors and more people the electric believe that he's it's easier if using that power but in addition to that president Clinton also commuted his brother Roger Clinton sentence for cocaine possession so there were a couple that were were quite controversial another reason another tweet from Michael this is a notice the media's lumping together commuted sentences and pardons trouble off for years awful going which is twelve years since apparently because we'll fly that his wife appeared frequently on fox news does the Barlow still deserve the stigma of a felony conviction well let the question hang on I'll get a caller on here from when Connie Jeremy you're on the air good morning good morning thanks for taking my call I just wanted to point out a a reader response I read in the times last night which really caught my eye our leader is somewhat of a spiteful person and it appears to me that that this could be a such a simple thing as just an act of spite against the justice department on doing a lot of their hard work we think well I go to mark Russell yeah he made that explicit you know I mean he he noted in in the blue gray **** case double grave which was Neil prosecuted based who he perceives as some of his own term mentors the the the four US attorney in Chicago in in James call me so you know it's often is true with trump we don't have to scratch the surface very far to to find out the motivation he puts it right out there yes Patrick fitzgerald was also a close friend of James commies and I'm wondering you know since we're in the realm of speculating it might have to ask a question about how much the president's motives had to do with again with well the the setting things up for the possible pardoning of Roger stone or Paul man a fort or others like that some thoughts from you mark also well it's surprising it did if he was going to do that that he hasn't done it already you know that you have you have several of his associates and and close friends who have been the imprisoned and he hasn't he hasn't freedom meanwhile he's freed these these characters like Michael Milken so the only people jump to that conclusion that well Roger stone is going to be next maybe but probably what's surprising is and that he might do that is that he hasn't done it already you know given that he has he has the advantage people like rebel Greivis mark ostler is professor of law university St Thomas a former federal prosecutor Nick is our next caller Nick you're on the air good morning good morning all right I'm not a Republican or Democrat I am concerned about the in general I think it's V. over years but certainly under the upgraded rationing that you sent out cold out hi nineteen hundred seventy or something so in comparison that hardly anything even though I think most of the day is probably political in nature what about that argument barber Perry as you look back historically most clemency is political in nature as the caller says I wouldn't say if as I look down the list of all the people who have or at least most prominent people on prominent names of people who've been pardon are are granted computations I it's sort of an interesting mixture kind of a rogue's gallery in some ways of people who are political and even engaged in corruption and that's both from Democrats and Republicans in the presidency and then then they're they're historical

and out make everybody laugh yep make energy hangs herself got it all you get an a plus and is a classic case of a listener full positivity optimistic we're starting off the decade right that is yep that's the way we're going to be so I like what you like to see clearly a love that twenty twenty well you know its very clear to us at least that's we've just had a decade that was primarily in the political correct realm course you remember all the political correctness has gone on and I don't know if you know this is where the term political correctness comes from thank you from the Soviet Union that's you if you were not politically correct you were sent off to a re education camp otherwise known as a prison until you learn your ways to come back and be politically correct to make sure that you did everything the state wanted you to do that's where the term prove politically correct comes from makes sense that it has its roots in communism had ties have its roots in communism so the National Review did a a little twenty four most of flooded Klay absurd politically correct moments of the last decade and your your gear to shake your head when you hear some of these the claims in university a college diversity training course taught it was culturally insensitive to expect people to be on time yes it targets attendees it was offensive do expect people to be on time because time may be considered a fluid in other cultures not making this up I got a problem with that we tell you so may god that doesn't work in radio okay no it's here it's everybody's been broadcasting no that doesn't work yeah number to it the phrase trigger warning was deemed a trigger a piece in every day feminism which is I'm sure a magnet a publication both the you read every day yes warning itself is exactly it is also a trigger because it could be re traumatizing folks who suffered military police and other forms of violence yes because there's a trigger on it yeah okay okay I get our full yeah it's crazy a professor was accused of sexually her of an accused of sexual harassment so you're saying that effort is ten percent of the grade this is from Brooklyn College City University of New York professor was forced to change his syllabus after he was accused of sexual harassment for stating that efforts was going to be ten percent of the grade I don't really get that out of a I don't I don't understand why that would well who what this has to do but I will click on the effort to says the professor David Seidman see university of New York they said that it was a title nine violation was his existing by efforts he was encouraging female students to come on to him is that yeah this is very confusing it is but for you they said the Camry now on this article here my department here would say the triangles are a problem they said the classroom was an unsafe space for those uncomfortable with view points which they may disagree all constitutionally protected speech is welcome he said the it had to do with turning triangle sardonically instead of quote marks I don't know what they all all okay okay the use of triangles was something that the **** did to the Jews in concentration camps and they was the he was using triangles as a symbol for how much people were giving effort in class that's what it is and somebody most of study to history class or taken a history class and found out that the triangles and something to do with Jews in concentration camps okay all right so this one little bit more complicated than the headline would let you know pretty complex campus survey this is number four campus surveying courting a trigger warning to caution students that it may contain anatomical names of body parts to this survey was distributed several made university because apparently college students are not able to handle the kinds of words that most kids here in their middle school biology class my golf no flakes yeah exactly bathing suit advertised is criticized for being sexist why because it depicted a woman invading suit as opposed to because she was the cover up whatever I do you have any type thing a dude in a swimsuit I don't know yeah well I think that's more offensive smoke yeah time college students decided against bringing a camel to school for hump day due to concerns about racism against the camel cultural appropriation maybe exactly your university Saint Thomas in Minnesota award the presence of a camel might offend middle eastern students wait a minute that concerned about offending them offensive that's what I was just going to say okay next well at this school in Seattle now notice these are happening in Texas yeah it is also found a school in Seattle reportedly insisted that Easter eggs he called spring spears what is it well they said they would you can be too religious if you call them Easter eggs and even if you call them eggs people are gonna know you mean Easter so no eggs there are offensive because they mean religion to trigger you I don't I hop they're going to try and like I'm scrambled spheres please yeah a sphere is a round solid figure with every point on its surface equidistant from the center that is not an egg well how you gonna go back physics squire yeah I guess would be physics classes start classics river geometry that's what I yes Fred how would you like your spheres I'd like my fears over easy place but now you said easy that's going to trigger somebody because you're talking about effort there okay I'd like them over over minimal effort in a docu ten percent for that side of flapjacks I said Jack and slap that's bad bad Teo micrographs MRI Jeez what I feel all right I'm fired it's a way.

"Drug dexter newsradio some forty KTRE. they're going. I'm here go right ahead Sir. yeah I just wanted to touch base I'm on the iTunes just outside of downtown near exit seven sixty to eighty. we've just been kind of set here for about the last few hours and forty minutes it's raining and I am to seven problems figuring out what it's like in front of us so just wanted to touch base see if you guys know what was going on we're all kind of at a loss for just that here. he hi you don't start to get out of their cars and walk around I think somebody reported there was an accident major accident in that particular area I'll try to double check that though and see if we can get that information to you will have a traffic update coming up here at the bottom of the hour with the news so the tune for that is well because I think you know we've we've got a lot of situations like that sometimes is because there's water getting off the freeway sometimes it's because there's of an accident or or truck blocking it it just depends but I I I don't you feel when you when you're stuck there and you're not going anywhere it's not very comforting. yeah yeah well I just hope everybody in in Houston and surrounding areas and stand safe and smarter than I was and that you're not going to work instead of heading downtown and then not be back well there's no doubt staying home is the way to go today that's for sure. already thanks for the phone call good luck in where you have to go one twenty at a time here on newsradio seven forty Katie our age it is it's quite a day it really is it's not the day I certainly thought it was going today I'm guessing it's not the day you thought it was going to be either it is turned out to be one hell of a mess out there. just just in university Saint Thomas closed they close to one o'clock due to the inclement weather I would suggest this if possible to do so Accorsi's many places as we can and like new we're gonna try to do that but I wouldn't be going to hobby your bush at this point to catch a flight without knowing whether or not the airport is is operational I you know for awhile there we were completely shut down specially when the storms were going on so the chances of you having a flight at your normal time are probably slim and none so you definitely want to check on that ahead of time before you go to either bush or hobby to try to catch a flight and even if you do apply going on time if you can change that flight I think you maybe want to consider doing that if nothing else trying to get there. is problematic to say the least and the more you can do to kind of void all that I think the better off you're going to be I agree to take a little break here for bottom the our.
