Senator Angus King: There Is No Excuse for Uvalde
"I got to ask you about you've Aldi, but I want to preface this by saying you're an Abbott guy. I'm an avid guy, the governor is going to win handily. Beto is not the answer for protection. I don't know how many questions. You got to beat him like three times and then maybe he'll go away, but you've all the seared into people's mind. 400 law enforcement officers. You are yourself. Law enforcement officer. What happened? You know, it was a, it was a catastrophe. The things that make good law enforcement are good training, good recruitment, good supervision, well funded law enforcement. They had none of that and Yuval. If you picture everything that goes wrong, it's an embarrassment to the law enforcement community. A humiliation and it's a tragedy of tragedies. And we are going to do everything we can to make sure that that never, ever happens again now. I'm just telling you, we can make those schools. We can lock them up. We can make them prisons. And someone will stand across the street and shoot with a rifle into the playground. They'll run to the bus, jump on the bus, they'll go to the football games. There's always ways people can do things. But our job is to make it as tough a target as possible to have as good and well trained school, personnel to deal with it, and to make sure that we got law enforcement that knows how to deal with that. When I was first became a cop, the deal was, if you had an active shooter, you secured the perimeter, and then you waited for S.W.A.T.. That was the job. That's not the way it's been sent Columbine. These officers dealt with it like it was pre Columbine. They did not go in. I have no idea why. If you and I had been there with no law enforcement training, we'd have been busting out the wind to doing something. But those officers, there's a time when as an officer, you know, you go in and you may be shot as the first one going in, you may be shot as a second one going in, but that third one or whatever is going to take out that shooter and save those children. That's what should have happened, and there is no excuse at all.

We Should Approach the Media With Great Skepticism
"You know, this is beyond you valdi. The media is complicit and painting a narrative. For the love of our lord, can we understand that at this point? If you see the media pushing something, be skeptical, if you're watching an investigation where children have been murdered. And you're seeing that they're dripping information out. That they're putting out things that contradict the things they say it before. They're leaking things. This is mine. Just think about this for a minute. This is a serious incident. There are children. There's parents that you've already lost their children. Their police officers that were at the scene who lost their children in that situation. This is not, this is not a game of politics. Why are our agencies and departments leaking information? What are they leaking this for? There should have been a review and they should have released it to the public at one time. Now, they drip dripping different things out. Why? Because there's an agenda here.
The Uvalde Narrative Highlights the Hatred Towards Police
"You can not tell me this is not an agenda to just flat out hate police or people that hypnotize with hatred. You see a picture of the guy that cell phone. Now, when I saw the guy on the cell phone, I said, you know what? I need to figure out what that is. I've been on my cell phone and S.W.A.T. collabs before. I'm guarantee you this guys in the hallway with people shooting in an active shooter situation. I'm sure he not chicken his Instagram. Come to find out it was his wife. Now, everybody bashed him and said he's a coward, look at him on a cell phone his picture went around the entire world. Then he got a mind you, he has kids and everything. He's a coward. This guy, I hope he help he dies. I'm pretty sure they threatened his life and everything. Come to find out he was taking his wife who ended up subsequently dying as a result of this situation in that classroom. But now, Ruben Ruiz is his name, officer Ruiz. So now he went from being a coward to now he's a victim. How did that happen, Brandon? Now they're saying that he was arrested, escorted out and his gun was taken while he was attempting to save his wife. Now, some of that is true, some of it is a complete lie in the media know it's a lie. He did get it appears that he was escorted out.
No, Men and Women Are Not Equal
"Can we just understand that and be good with it and just live with it? It's just facts. Men and women are not equal. I think that they are comparable. You know, America, this concept of freedom, all was established by men. And they were established by men who had great women who complimented these men to allow this to happen. Do you know what happened in these wars that we fought? The Civil War. I mean, all of these things that you now that we now as a society hold as a benefit was because men, men were out on a battlefield. Men were doing all these things that I don't think women could do. Now, on the home front, women were taking care of the kids, women were doing a keeping up the slag. Mothers were doing what they had to do on their end. Could women go out and fight the wars against men? I doubt it.
The Case Against Same Sex Marriage
"Back to the subject at hand. I was speaking about same sex marriage. Now, let me say this. Let me preface this. I'm a Christian. I do not believe that God may Adam and Steve. He may Adam and Eve. You look anywhere in the Bible, man is supposed to be with woman. Okay, what is the point of man and women being together? To reproduce, a caveat of reproduction and being fruitful and plentiful in the earth, the caveat is that God gives you the ability to fall in love with this person and actually like them enough to continue to reproduce. And then reproduction by and large is the thing that human beings love to encounter and that was done by design so we can have as many kids as possible to be fruitful here on earth, right? There's a lot of space here, and we need to feel as much as we can. That's my thought process. That's what I think the Bible is alluding to. It does not include too me and being together are two women being together. We live in a place that is very forgiving and very open minded, which is the United States of America. And so in the United States of America, the country is not opposed to people who are of the same sex being together in a relationship. We have gone so far to our detriment, in my opinion, of saying that two people of the same sex should be what we call married.
House Passes Bill to Protect Same-Sex Marriage
"A vote to codify same sex marriage in federal law split House Republicans on Tuesday with roughly a third of the GOP conference voting with Democrats in favor of the risk opposing. So what they want to do, and the House passed legislation repealing the defense. Let me see, okay, so it's 22 67 to one 57 vote. The House passed legislation repealing the defense of marriage act and enshrining protection for gay marriage into federal law. So let me just explain what this means. I'm sure 99.9% of y'all know exactly what this means. Let me just explain. Just like roe V wade was not settled law. It's not a law. And the same thing with the defense of marriage act is an act is not a law. And they want to eliminate the act and they want to implement a law. it's federally protected. I believe I'm rehearsing it correctly.
The Left's Emotional Illogic Over Britney Griner
"So you know the girl Brittany griner, right? The girl with the boy's voice that plays for the WNBA, which nobody watches. I have never in my life seen a WNBA Jersey ever. I've never seen one. Day out there, but I haven't seen one. The league where girls can't even dunk. Nobody's watching you if you can not dunk. Because they would rather watch LeBron James is woke as he is, and all these other NBA players jumping over people's heads doing 360 windmills. They're not watching girls miss three pointers. And do layups. Dudes in high school Duncan. Okay, let me get off my soap ops. But she went to jail in Russia. Now she's been traveling to Russia. I believe frequently for the summer. She is in like a summer league in Russia. So she knows better than to take, I will say, hash she's all. I think that's what it was. Paraphernalia. What was it again? Yeah, the hashish oil in her luggage through the airport into Russia. Now she know better. She knows against the lawsuit traveler often is not like she accidentally went somewhere and didn't know the law. So she gets in trouble. And guess what? Just because you black don't mean nothing in the rest of the world. Nobody cares about feeling sorry for you and that you're a victim. You're going to go to jail. So she goes to jail in Russia and in our country because this administration and leftists in my opinion are completely emotionally driven, they feel like she should not be in jail. They feel, not according to the law, but according to feelings and emotions. Brittany grinder should not be in jail.

We Have Fallen Into a Have It Your Way Society
"Am I going crazy, y'all? Oh, I'm just keeping it too real. This whole fat shaming thing. If anybody that's under the sound of my voice can snap your finger and be fit, what you do it or what you're not doing. When I say fit being the shape that in your mind, you want to be. Yes, you would. I do it myself. I love to snap my finger and I had to go to that gym. But it's okay to say, I don't think people should be mean to other people about their bodies. It's on them. But don't try to force lies on us to make you feel better. I will never in my life because I'm overweight. I weigh like two 60 something. And I'm normally like two 20. Now when people look at me, I don't look fat or nothing, but you know, I'm over the weight that I would like to be. Now, I'm not going to sit here and say, there's a new wave. There's a new fad. Ladies and gentlemen, you don't have to be fit, you can be overweight like me. You could be way above the way that you want to be. It's okay. You don't have to go to the gym. You don't have to be disciplined. Why would you be disciplined? God made you this way. I should get off the radio if I'm winning a lie about that. It's okay to say, hey, I'm at this point right now, and I want to improve and get better. It's totally fine. When I first started this show, me, me, reading these ads, sucked. I think I could have been worse, but I improved. It's not like you can sit there and say, well, you know, I'm not good at something so what? I'm not good at it. Then that's the way God made me. No God gave you the ability to be the best version of yourself. That's what you should strive to do. If there's some places where you're not good at, get better at it. There are some fears that you have overcome your fears. I get sick of a society where you see women who are overweight, and it's mostly women they don't even care. Men will get slaughtered. But women who are overweight, all they have a struggle with is that they struggle with consistency. And some of these women may feel like they're too far gone. And it's hard to imagine losing the weight that they really want to lose. So instead of challenging people and teaching them to become a better version of themselves, you say, quit doing what you're doing, accept it the way except you the way you are.
Media Tries to Defend Uvalde Killer's Mental Health
"I didn't have to watch the video to see that. But these people are taking up for this for this dude. And saying he has mental, he's a mental crisis. I watched the body one camera footage. He is trying to kill people. He literally is shooting cops through the door. Attempted to thank God they maneuvered out of the way. He's trying to kill people. Indiscriminately shooting into people's apartment complex. And I almost I almost feel like that he may have intentionally shot at that other lady 'cause she said he intentionally shot into her house. That he saw in the hallway, he was mad at somebody start shooting in her house. You know, it's crazy. The little kids in the video, the little kids 'cause the door has this big lock on it. It's no way they can open the door if it's locked. There's no way. They would have to get breaching tools and everything else. Even the lock, even the throw is covered by metal, a metal cover. You guys probably have seen doors like this on the external major buildings. The throw is completely covered by a metal bracket and there's no way you can get to that steel door. So thank God a little kid who's brave ran up and pushed the door open and I thought they were going to shoot the kid. These cops were exceptional,
DL Hughley Defames Uvalde Police
"So I'm gonna continue to saga and whooping DL hughley's argument because I think he's a hack. And it's a shame that black men can not be more intelligent with platforms like me versus him. Finish the clip. And there was as many as a hundred around in the air. But those 19 men who fled immediately milled around in the hallway didn't even test the door to see if they could get in, let those children die. Why would you fight to keep a job when you failed so miserable? You should slink away and horror. And initially, you tried to take the hero rap. You tried to say that you acted bravely and everybody took up the mansion because you're giving that kind of difference. We always believe you until we see something different. I saw people on the phone. I saw one dude with a Kevlar vest on an AR-15 in sandals. All right. But the most, let's put that logic together. You saw a man with an air 15 of vest on and sandals. DL hughley, why would a man be with an air 15 invest on his sandals? Because he's probably running from his house to defend those kids. That's the definition of a sense of urgency.
DL Hughley: Uvalde Police Waited to Confront Gunman
"Yet. Somebody that I have been waiting to do a diss track on. It's almost like a rapper. I want to diss this person. Is DL hughley. I've been, I told the lord, I said, lord, please give me a radio show. That's big enough and syndicated. So I can tell the truth about DO hughley. I used to love DIA hughley. He was a part of the kings of comedy, I used to love him growing up. He's an incredible comedian, but this man is so woke. And he hates white people so much. That is sickening to me. And he's always talking about people like me and others like me who are black who are conservative and he's even named me because my uncle used to listen to deal he will then deal healey start talking trash about me on the radio and so my uncle told me and he said he don't mess with DL he did no more. Because DIA hughley is fake to me. And he's an example in his exemplification of the weak black men in America. That literally can not think for themselves. And everything that come out of their mouth is from the perspective of a complete victim. Now, I have talked about you to the point where I'm done even I don't even want to say the word y'all anymore. However, DL hughley decided to make comments about Yuval D and I wanted to give him an honest take on it. But he can't help but make it about race. So without further ado, let's play the deal, he could clip where he's talking about you valdi. It definitely retreated. When I saw that video from the first though, who the hell is the mayor to get more mad at the video coming out than the police officers who perpetrated being police officers on that day? Because all right, put a pause on it. So before he says this, he talks about governor Abbott. He mentions that governor Abbott came out and said the police did everything they could do and in the next day governor ever said he was disappointed that he was then told he wasn't told accurate information.
The Epidimic of Black Victimhood
"It is a epidemic in America where young black people are taught to become victims. That they're less than, not by white people, not by the system, by their own parents. And you see it reflected in every aspect of society, and it really gives black people a bad reputation. Because I want you to think about this for a minute. If I was a Fortune 500 company, and I'm a big deal, and I have a chance to hire a black person. And I look at their social media and this Black Lives Matter, I'm in it to fight for social justice and awareness and inclusion. Would I hire that person or would I hire a white person that's atypical and politics? Which one would you hire? Now, nobody's gonna know what my reasoning is, 'cause I don't have to disclose that. But I would hire a person that's not gonna cause problems in the business structure.
Sesame Place Gives Family VIP Treatment
"I want to talk about the story of the Sesame Street. I got a bunch of stuff talk about, but I want to start with the Sesame Street thing. We were talking about yesterday. So the parents of the young children pictured videoed in the Sesame Street, I don't know if it's Cal Sesame Street, is a Sesame Street parade that everybody's been talking about where it appears sesame place, where it appears that the characters walking and avoid these two black girls. In 2024, I mean, 2022 is no way in the world that you can believe that that would happen without any type of punishment. It is fair to believe that obviously something else happened. I made a video about it on my YouTube channel pointing at the fact that it appears that the sesame place organization or whatever that event they apologize to the family, it appears that it was a protocol thing where the actor that's in the costume costume did not either see the kids or they were outside of protocol where he can't pick him up. He can't do certain things with him any wave them off. For the people that are watching you can see a picture in the video that he said no no no to another kid off camera or an adult off camera and then he was walking by and saying no, no, the kids in front of him were too black kids and then the camera cut. If you see a video, this 8 seconds, you know it's bullcrap. Now let's go on beyond that. You would think that if this was a racist encounter, or if this was a misstep by the person playing the role of the Sesame Street character, that a parent would say, okay, y'all need to make it right because you hurt my children's feelings. But the theme park made it right the event coordinator made it right because they allowed the woman in her children to have what they would consider to be a VIP experience. Now, I don't know if sesame plays is at Disneyland or somewhere like that 'cause I'd never even heard of the thing. But I know that when I took my son to Disneyland, it was like a $1000. It was over a $1000 for us to have the VIP experience. So if some character wrong your daughters, wouldn't you want to give them the VIP experience, which was way cooler than standing on the side of the road like everybody else in high 5 in the

Chicago Police Ignore Proactive Policing as Crime Rises
"The rest of Chicago, according to the article written by Fox News Richard Chicago plummet to historic low as crime rises, police admittingly pull back. Now, you don't have to tell me this because I talked to a few people in Chicago. And somebody said on my social media, you got sources everywhere. Like as if I'm lying. I got over 2 million people that follow me and I'm a well-known former police officer. So police officers contact me all the time and they tell me the dirty secrets that the media don't want to talk about. But I know people in Chicago and they tell me flat out, it ain't what it used to be. We ain't proactively policing. People are just not proactively policing. We show up to cost of service if the college is going out on the radio, and that's it. Understand this ladies and gentlemen, proactive policing is the most effective policing that your department can be involved in. The most effective, then I think community policing in a second. And then cost of service is third. Cost of services them just responding to you after somebody has hurt you. After a crime has been committed. Proactive policing is thwarting the criminal before they commit a crime against you.
History Will Not See BLM as a Champion for Civil Rights
"Just to finish up on the topic of the civil rights movement and all of this. And people were probably thinking of what made Brandon go down his path. And it's because I see what BLM is doing, I see what these black activists are doing today, and they are literally lying to the world about what's really going on. We are going to look 20 years from now. You Mark my word. In the record books in the historical documents, people are going to put that Black Lives Matter was one of the biggest, most effective, civil rights movement, organization ever, and that Black Lives Matter was created to thwart police brutality, police brutality, I'm hearing feedback. So Thorpe police brutality and other things like that. And we know that's not to be true. Know that not to be true. It's going to say that their policing in America was systemically racist. And that nobody on earth should be able to be, you know, to be subject to the racism, from police, and all this stuff y'all here. They're going to push this agenda and we're going to go back and realize or hear from our history books that Black Lives Matter was a great thing for our country. And we're going to hear that Maxine waters and all of these people, Benjamin crump, they're going to have a statue of Benjamin crump saying that he was an activist and leader of his time he was a Martin the next Martin Luther King. When Benjamin crump chase ambulance. And all he wanted to pay out because I ain't never seen that joker when black people need him. I ain't never seen him there. He only show up when there's money to be made. That's what it appears to be in my opinion.
"uvalde" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"However, as we have learned in the recent report, what happened and you've all day is not just unacceptable, it's one of the great moral injustices of modern times. Breaking report nearly 400 local state and federal officers waited outside Yuval day school as gunmen targeted children. 400. There were nearly 400 officers on the scene as the gunman massacred children and teachers for 73 minutes. They were a 149 border patrol agents, 91 state police, 25 uvalde police, and 16 members of the Yuval the sheriff's police and 5 members of the school district. Four hundred people. That stood and largely did nothing for 73 minutes. Bureaucratic paralysis. It makes me think as if that is the direction the rulers and the elites are getting us closer to. Just to stare at what is going wrong. Well, I know we have to do something, but what do we do? Remember, fear is a reaction. And courage is a decision. You see, the average American I actually think is much more courageous. Than what is being trained and taught to our police officers. We could psychoanalyze it that 400 people sat idly by while children were massacred one by one, we could psychoanalyze that, but instead I want to contrast the cowardice, the unacceptable behavior, the stand down order to what we have just witnessed in Indiana. Now this is a story that is going to quickly disappear from the media. This is a story the media does not want you to hear about. This is a story, the media is going to be like, okay, let's move on. But the way the media covered this story is extraordinary in addition to what actually happened. In a suburb of Indianapolis, yesterday, a gunman goes into the mall with the intent to mass murder. Unfortunately, the gunman killed three people. But an unexpected development occurred. An armed good Samaritan 22 year old young man confronted him and killed him and neutralized the shooter. That average American at the mall in Indianapolis had more courage than those 400 police officers and Yuval ne. Yes, he put his life on the line. Yes, he could have died. But he wasn't a police officer. He wasn't a border patrol agent. He wasn't a DHS. He wasn't an FBI officer based on everything we know. He might have been an off duty police officer. We haven't heard that yet. Very low likelihood, all reports seem as if this is just a normal 22 year old that came in and saw a guy with a gun. He had a gun and he took care of business. Now tragically, three people died, but as we have learned that three people very well could have become 15 or 20 or God forbid 30 people. It could have become one of the worst mass shootings as we have learned. Play cut two O two..

"Name of the song, but it's a song that's a little bit more melancholy. And I felt myself getting a little emotional as I listened to that song because I think it was the first time during the entire weekend where I had just, it was just me and my thoughts. Even though it was an exhausting trip, emotionally, mentally, physically draining. I'm really glad that I went. I would not have it any other way. Coming up on Latino USA, I speak with nelva Marquez green. Her daughter on a grace was killed at the sandy hook massacre almost a decade ago. Since then, nel ba has been on a mission to help bring awareness on how best to help families impacted by gun violence. Stay with us. Hey, we're back. Throughout this episode, we've heard a lot about the uvalde community from its beautiful rich Mexican American culture and its history of resistance to our journalists are trying to document the story of a community after a tragedy. But a question that lingers for many after every single mass shooting is, how can we help families and communities affected by these tragedies? This is a question that melba Marquez green thinks about every single day since her daughter and a grace was killed almost a decade ago at the sandy hook massacre in newtown Connecticut, where 20 children were murdered. Anna was just 6 years old..
"uvalde" Discussed on Latino USA
"Was when I was growing up. Everything I had heard before going to Valdez sounded familiar. The drive from wax hatchie to uvalde is typically around 5 hours on the way down, whereas normally I would listen to maybe a podcast or catch up on news. This time I just chose to listen to music because that would give me just time to like think about what I was going to do when I got there. When I got to valde, it was around 5 30 p.m. and I happened to find a parking spot on the town square. There were a ton of people on the square visitors from all over. And there was the makeshift memorial that was growing pretty rapidly because so many people were leaving flowers and teddy bears and messages. Even though I've been reporting for many years, it's never easy to go up to people who are grieving. And so I was really conscious of what I was going to say to people as I approach them to ask them if they would talk with me. If somebody was silently praying or just meditating, I didn't want to bother them, but if they were kind of standing back, I would approach them. What is your name? One of the most compelling stories I heard came from ten year old Caitlin Gonzales. I'm ten years older.

"But they can drive across town. Easily and buy these weapons of war. So when I'm thinking about the kinds of images of policing, these are laws that with legal for the gun shop to do that. Monika I have a question and it's actually based on something that you wrote. This is from a forthcoming essay about the 2019 massacre in El Paso, where a white supremacist shot and killed 23 Latinos and latinas at a Walmart. In your essay you write quote, the children growing up in border communities will learn the hard truths of the recent past in due time. When they do, they should also learn that in the face of forces that attempted to malign them or make them more vulnerable to death. Border communities collectively worked to protect them. It is a long tradition that they should no longer have to bear, but for centuries, fronterizos have shown a commitment to remembering their lost loved ones, repairing broken humanity and building a more just future. So Monica, can you tell me a little bit more about that? I had a, it's a very difficult paragraph the year. In the context of this now being a story of a home community. Because you wrote that not every imagining that it would be the site. Of a massacre. I wrote it and I have given testimony and I have given interviews, worried that this could happen because this could happen anywhere. So the thought that he could happen in uvalde was something that you were skipping. Unfortunately, yes, especially when we see the patterns of violence and the access to weapons of war. That when you think about a community that has such ready access, easy access. But for me, what was also what's hard to hear about that paragraph is that I don't have those families and those people who are picking up the broken pieces of humanity are my family. And they are my Friends. And they are my former teachers, and that's important that nobody should have to bear, but in a town like you valdi where there are not enough resources. That's what shatters me. A member of my family was the justice of the peace that had to identify the remains. Of the victims. And so when I heard not only when we were waiting for news about whether our little customs were okay, that when I heard the news that it was going to be my family member having to do that work, that unspeakable task to help the families start to heal, to get those bodies back to their loved ones that he had to be in that site of horror because he thought he doesn't have a medical examiner. So this is what I have been living with that as a historian as somebody who's been warning about the threat of gun violence to marginalize communities communities of people of color. That my mind could understand that this could happen, but knowing that it was going to be my loved ones and Friends and family putting together the pieces of broken humanity is something that has made me worry. And I know family members with victims, family members of victims of children and of teachers who have still not yet received. Mental health, counseling or support. I am now hearing about children, high school age, middle school age, children that survive the atrocities at rob, who have not received the mental health support. I am hearing a know about families. That don't know what kinds of signs of trauma to look for in their children or in their the adults in their lives. And so I'm afraid. I know that the resources are not reaching people where they are. You value needs a classroom by classroom, block by block response, to help people in the aftermath of this tragedy, and it hasn't happened yet. And so as a historian who studies not only racial violence, but the long aftermath, that's my hometown, those are the people that I'm worried about. Receiving the support that they need. I'm worried. Now I'm trying to raise the alarm. About the trauma that is not being addressed. To close up I want to thank you actually for being very specific about tending to families needs and the communities needs, but I'm asking you about how you're going to take care of yourself. I have therapy. So that's number one, people should seek counseling, people should take advantage of their resources that are available, that information should be circulated widely, I'm trying to take care of my family and friends and make sure that they have access to resources, so I've been making appointments. For family and friends and loved ones and it's been too hard. It's been too hard to make that happen. But that is one thing that I am doing is turning it into advocacy, writing to elected officials, writing to charities that are in uvalde about the needs, the gaps that I see, writing to, you know, the directors of the Red Cross that are renewable there and saying, you need to get.

"Otherwise. Because from school to city to county to state to federal police, that large police presence did not prevent this massacre. It's so horrible moniga. It's just so horrible. We're all traumatized, but that question is in people's minds certainly for every Latino and Latina tejana, we're just like, but it'll get bustle. There's an ongoing investigation as a historian I have written about massacres. And police violence and racial violence of the past, the last hundred years ago. But I've also been called testify for Congress in the aftermath of massacres like an El Paso. So weeks after the El Paso massacre, I traveled to Obama to testify in front of Congress about the history, but also the increased violence facing Latino communities hate crimes. And so what I first heard about the massacre, I was at that time it wasn't a massacre just a shooting. And so I panicked and I thought, is this somebody who came to our town? Did they look up the census? Did they see the high numbers? And did they target the town because of it? But people need to be asking questions about what were the laws that were passed over the laws that were passed since El Paso that made it easier for this person. To buy these weapons of war. And because I'm from uvalde, I.

"She shared with me when I was conducting research about the walkout was that she remembered walking into buildings for school board meetings with Texas Rangers on rooftop with rifles pointed down at them. So the kind of intimidation was not just through local community members, but also by the state police. When I'm thinking about on the one hand, this picture of uvalde, which is like everybody knows each other familia, this history of structural racism and segregation, and also resistance met with violence. And that is part of basically the Texas Rangers and law enforcement in general in Texas, targeting Latino and Latina communities for decades. But there's something that seems that needs to be put together with that history of violence, law enforcement, Texas Rangers, and what's happening now in terms of the conversation around law enforcement in uvalde. Or should we not be making that connection? While things have certainly changed, you've valdi is one of the most heavily policed cities in the country. Why is that? So I haven't heard that from anyone. So you're saying uvalde is one of the most policed cities, not just in Texas, but in the country, and that would be why? So in terms of just the sheer police presence. So not only do you have a school district police force for the valdi CI SD. You also have local police. You have county police, you know, the sheriff's office and deputies, but you also at this moment have Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas DPS officers in ivaldi county because you value is one of the counties that signed up for operation lone star. And in addition, you also have a heavy border patrol presence. Law enforcement is one of the only employment opportunities in healthy. And so one of the best jobs in uvalde is if you can graduate from high school and successfully take a training and become a border patrol agent. And so that's when people are thinking about why is it difficult to have conversations about guns and police, there is a strong culture supporting law enforcement. Victims, parents and family members are members of the border patrol and local law enforcement. But if you believe that more police makes people more safe. You value proves.

"Language. If a child that was lost is being warned by their parents, by their theists and their theos, by their cousins, and cousins there is multiple generations of cousins. It's by their grandparents and great grandparents and by their neighbors. An attack on the schools in a place like uvalde that is so under resourced. The schools are the lifeblood of the community. It is where children are nurtured, where they are encouraged to dream and to think big. It's horrific that now you hear kids that are scared to go to school. And so for that belief in a community structure to be shaken, it devastates me to think about that not feeling safe for kids, right? And as a historian, you're thinking so much about the long tail of this event. So can you tell me about what you knew and understood about the walkouts? And is it still a very present story or do you think that because of this tragedy, the resistance, the protest movement, the walkouts will actually get another hearing or not? People in humanity want to come together, people are looking for love and comfort and encouragement. But in terms of the communities, trust, it is complicated by a longer history in.

"The former rob elementary school teacher who participated in one of the longest school walkouts in the country and who later became mayor of uvalde. And now we're going to speak with historian Monica munoz Martinez. Monica is a professor at UT Austin and she's from uvalde. For many years, she's been studying violence against Mexican Americans on the border, and her project, mapping violence, documents forgotten cases of racial violence in Texas in the early 20th century. Last year, Monika was awarded a Macarthur genius grant for her research, but though Monika has been studying this as an academic, the uvalde tragedy hit very close to home. Here's our conversation. So welcome to Latino USA and I just want to thank you so much for being here. And I want to ask, actually, can you tell me where you are right now? I'm in Austin. So we drove back on Sunday. Okay. And have been driving to San Antonio to visit family there as well, who have also been impacted by this tragedy. People from uvalde who have left the town live in San Antonio. They live in Austin. Everybody's devastated. Everybody in Nevada is is only 1° of separation. From the victims, if people don't know the children or the teachers personally, they know their parents or their grandparents or their answer, their uncles. Everybody has been shattered by this. I mean, I have, for example, two cousins who, you know, one of them used to be a teacher at rob. Another was classmates with Eden by Garcia and with Tony Garcia. And she also is coworkers with one of the parents who lost a child. That's an example of two people who live in San Antonio who haven't lived in new valley for over a decade, and they're a shattered. The depth of grief is unimaginable. It extends far beyond you valdi, but for the people who live and you value when the news of the tragedy was announced, it was not a question of whether or not people would know the victims. It was how many. I should also say, for example, in terms of the impact that my mother worked for the valdi school district, for over 35 years, and before she was an educator, she was a student who walked out in the valley school walkouts. So her whole life, she has been working to create the best educational opportunity for the children and Nevada, and she's just one of the educators who have given their lives. It's devastating to think of the teachers who had to physically give their lives for the children. And so this is a tragedy, not just for the town, but for any value where the school is the social fabric that ties people together for this to be an attack on the schools is horrific. I've been trying to keep it together because I'm not going to cry. In these interviews, but you have brought it so home, money guy means just like you're like, look, I'm a product of these schools. But the school in terms of what it represents for uvalde and as you say, it's not just like a regular school because it is in this school and the whole educational system, the structural inequality of the school's new valdi, is what led to the protests and the walkout, which enlightened so many people like your mom. And so it is like, I mean, in your words, tell me, because it isn't just an attack on a school, but you're saying there's a much bigger attack here. And I want you to kind of put that to words. I think when people are trying to understand the depths of grief, so I have it lived in a valley. In 20 years, my family has lived there. My family still lives there. I have cousins in those schools, little cousins. So even somebody like me who hasn't lived there in 20 years. When I start to try to list all of the people who I know, who are impacted, my mind can't compute. And when you think about the impact on the families, what has become so challenging in terms of providing resources for families is that when we think about the victims, people think about the immediate families. But in new valley, there is no just immediate family. People don't use that term. You know, that's my first cousin, or that's my, we don't use that.

"You had to take it to a higher court, but in fact, you did win. The schools were forced to change the community kept pressuring officials and eventually schools started offering bilingual classes. There were more Mexican American teachers who were hired and Latinos in general were more present in leadership positions in town. In fact, in the 1990s, you even decide to run for mayor of uvalde and you win. And you were mayor for 12 years. You know, when I was elected mayor, I had a connection to crystal city. I taught school every one year. And the council was very, very experienced. And we were all Hispanics except one, but we all worked together. Things are quite different now. The mayor of uvalde is white in a city that is overwhelmingly Latino and Latina and I think a lot of people find that a little surprising. So I better get past all. In my opinion, it's voter suppression. Can you tell me exactly what that looks like in uvalde? When we have a city elections, school board elections and general elections, we gather around the polling places, passing out cards to the people. Many first time voters come and they've never seen a ballot before. And we work with them, but sometimes back the mayor at the time that they passed out Norton's that you couldn't put a big task in the polling players to you can people you can meet the people before they go into the polling place. And they said back in the Hispanic councilman voted for it. And then they tried to pass another one that if an ordinance that if I go give prospective voter a car to ask them to vote for me, I could face a misdemeanor charge at $500 fine and of course we got together and it didn't pass our city councilman stood firm and said no. You know, George your story in uvalde is one of resilience. You stayed in the city to try to make your dreams come true and you did. You have your career, your beautiful family. But you actually had to fight for all of that. I mean, there was intense activism against racism and injustice in uvalde. And I'm wondering, as you're looking at your city now in this much pain, is there a part of you that says this history of activism is in fact part of uvalde soul? And I'm wondering if you've been wanting to see that kind of activism come back. In this moment? Yeah, but we have lost our will to stand up. I've got kids that can't speak Spanish or Wall Street Spanish. I mean, and I'm the biggest chick on the activist. I want to thank and what time they can't even speak Spanish. Nothing but where are we here to do? Don't forget our culture. I see meatball. For defender, a lithium made espanol. Unless it's less, a sim is more kombucha made and thank you for giving all of us a very unique and special portrait of the city.

"In fact, George, in 1970, there was a 6 week school walkout in uvalde, and that started because you were contract at rob wasn't renewed. But it wasn't just that, right? I mean, students were demanding change. They wanted more Mexican American teachers at their schools, and they wanted to be able to speak Spanish. And I'm wondering, what was that moment like for you? Well, my name was mud. And because I was blamed for the walk out. And I kept telling the people I wasn't the leader of it. I was a participant. And these were pretty tense. I mean, this part of Texas in terms of Latinos and latinas standing up to kind of white Texas authority, this was very radical. I think it's important to kind of put into history this was a time when Latinos and latinas, Mexican Americans, mexicanos, were organizing la rasau Nida party, there were the Brown berets. There was a lot of activism around students and education, and so during the walkouts, the Texas Rangers were called in to the city of uvalde. The chief of police at one time wanted to make a master rest, you know, and the mayor victory said, no, no, no. Where are you going to put him? Jalen, that big enough. And he sort of used his head and he was rather rationally, you know. He said, they want to march without a permit, let him march. Even though they were textural rangers there, and we weren't afraid of them. You weren't afraid of the Texas Rangers coming down trying to squash a peaceful student teacher walkout? We weren't. I don't think we were failing. We weren't afraid of them. As long as we kept it peaceful, that government has to guarantee you the right to do that. The students lost one year of school. And the school board was very adamant and not making any changes to favor the Mexican Americans. Not even the food in the cafeteria. So the school ends up not making any changes, but you all didn't stop there. So what happened after that? I kept telling the people it was not over. We had a lawyer from senator mister pat maloney senior and another attorney Jesse Gomez that took our case to federal court. And we had a monster for a federal judge. He didn't believe in giving an inch to the Mexican American people and then walk out situation. And we lost the case in Del Rio, the judge dismissed it. There was no discrimination and he valued no segregation whatsoever. Wow, wow. Some of my older Mexican American Friends have none of the gun nuts. You can beat the system. Well, mister maloney contacted maldev. It took our case and appealed it to the 5th Court of Appeals in New Orleans. And 5th court overruled Josh wood. They overruled him. So.

"Recently in town, so he didn't worry. George has lived in uvalde for almost 70 years. He went to school here, then he became a teacher for 12 years he was also the mayor of uvalde. He knows his city, so he wasn't too worried about the police cars. He went home and took a nap. About an hour later, George woke up, and that's when he learned about the news. I had the TV on and he valued a mass shooter and barricaded and school and I couldn't believe I thought I was dreaming for a while because something like that had never occurred here in new valley. George says there were ambulance sirens blaring and helicopters circling nonstop. In that moment he knew that his community would forever be changed. From foot media and PRX, it's Latino USA, I'm Mariano rossa. Today, uvalde resiste. Uvalde resists. By now, you've probably heard a lot about the devastating massacre that took place in uvalde.

"You know what, you know what it is, what we do. We've kept it real representing our community as much as we can. For 8 years right now and really want to spend a moment with looking at the uvalde massacre in the context of Texas and what it all means because it does feel like a repetitive topic when it comes to gun violence in Texas and the issues that are surrounding it. So obviously there's a lot of morning right now in uvalde. And if you haven't heard other media podcasts about I did one with Maria you know for in the thick, which also ran on Latino USA. That was pretty raw. We did that a couple of days after the massacre after the shooting. And this week, for this show, I want to bring on someone that I have tons of respect for, he is someone who has been contributing to Latino rebels dot com for close to four years. He's based in Houston, fabulous guest, has covered this issue on many platforms, so fabulous guests from Houston, Texas, if you can introduce yourself and who you are and what you do hello. Welcome to Latino rebels radio. Man, thanks for having me, Julio. Yeah, man, I'm an Arthur Dominguez, and I'm in Houston, you know, originally in New Jersey boy. I focus on a lot of my work and stuff that I do focuses on this particular issue, you know, guns and extremism and hate group stuff and tracking extremists and things like that. So yeah, I'm excited to be here just to maybe have, you know, have a conversation and put some ideas out there, you know? Right, so you're contributed to Latino rebels. You're also the editor of antagonist, magazine. So we've connected several times over the years, but this is your first appearance on the show, so thanks for being on, and I wish it was a less than heavy topic, but here we are, right? When Oscar, my producer and I were thinking, like, who should we have on? You were the top of our list, because I want you to give this some context. I mean, you're in Houston, obviously there's some great coverage happening from places, you know, local reporters, whether it's Spanish speaking television, local San Antonio reporting the Texas tribune also an outlet that I respect. Talking a little bit about the response to Valle, right? Here we go, right? You saw the governor last week, governor Greg Abbott basically share law enforcement narrative that wasn't true, right? And that was established. The response took forever. There is still this call by Abbott and its allies to slow it down. Let's mourn, which I'm not trying to minimize the lives of these children and these teachers, right? We understand their funerals happening this week as we talk about this article. But yeah, how do you struggle with this? Because you understand there's a tragedy. There's another tragedy, there's lives lost, gun violence. But, you know, what's the button all this that you think about? Well, you know, where I'm at where I'm maybe 15 or 20 minutes away from where the Santa Fe shooting happened. So the Santa Fe shooting happened, that happened in Texas. A couple years ago. Couple of years ago, right in 2018. Right, exactly. Right. So that one hit pretty hard because it's so close. And you get a better sense of what it's like on the ground in a situation like that. We all see it on TV. We read the reports, but there's nothing like actually being part of that community. So, you know, when buffalo happened, you know, that was like, I don't know, it ripped a gash through our House. You know, a lot of black family members and stuff. We live together, you know, stuff like that. So that one rocked us pretty hard. And then to follow that up with what happened and you valdi, for me, it kind of shut me down because, you know, I do this work like all the time. So, and it does wear on you. And there are mental health issues that you have to be cognizant of when you're doing this stuff. But man, you've really broke me down and was at the point where basically all I can do is tweet, you know? But the police response from the police response to the shooter, there are so many questions that have yet to be answered and here we are like, I don't even know how many days anymore away from that. Shooting. I mean, let's call it what it is, terrorist attack, you know? Even if it was a, I don't even want to say deranged Latino kid, but it's a complexity. I mean, I think there's a complexity to this, there's a complexity of the community. There's a complexity to this becoming. I mean, if you just list, you mentioned Santa Fe, I mean, but just the mass shootings in Texas since 2009. And this is a timeline that the tribune shared, you know, fort hood. In 2009, there was another fort hood shooting in 2014, the Dallas police shooting in 2016, 2017 that Texas first baptist church shooting in Sutherland, 2018, you just mentioned it the Santa Fe high school shooting 2019, the El Paso Walmart shooting, 2019, the Midland Odessa shooting, and then 2022 of Aldi. As I say, you know, and I mean, it's frustrating. Countless. Right. It's countless and it's frustrating because what you just mentioned are just like are just the mass shootings, right? And, you know, there's an overall gun problem here in Texas that a lot of people don't talk about, you know? Like when habits doing his press conference deal after you all day, he's going to say something about Chicago, but when you look at the murder rate in Texas related to gun deaths and Chicago, we're like dead or Illinois with that even. You know, and in Houston is running right up there with Chicago this year and last year and like, you know, you can't sit here and say, oh gun laws in Illinois and look what's going on over there when you have next to zero gun laws here and it's just as bad. You know, with Illinois, the gun problem there is they're smuggling guns in. You leave the state, go to a gun show, buy a gun through a private sale where, you know, no questions asked. And then you traffic it back into the city, you know? And that's a big issue. You have a lot of people that come to the gun shows here in Texas to traffic guns to other places where, you know, they can't otherwise get these weapons. This is all like well documented stuff. So like the gun issue is a really big and complex thing. It's a lot more than just banning guns. There's a lot of stuff we really should be doing. So when you think about it, yeah, when you think about this, when you think about gun culture and I.

"uvalde" Discussed on Latino USA
"Did that ever cross your mind as a parent? I mean, across mine. Of course. When I would send my kids settlement, I mean, this is an elementary school Maria. Look, the thing is is that this is the second or third if you count the pulse nightclub. Yeah. Hate raged attack with guns aimed at Latinos and latinas. So the plea of the father of medi's father saying, what did she do to be a victim? To live in the state of Texas and to have to learn how to Dodge bullets instead of making sure that there are no guns. I don't know. Everything is so dark right now. Everything is so dark. On Wednesday or you may? I never do this. I ended up just falling asleep twice, taking two short naps in the middle of the day. You know that never happens, but it's like, I couldn't, I couldn't even hold myself. You know that I'm Eddie deux Garth. It's been reported that she attempted to dial out 9-1-1. Moments before she died. So she's being remembered as a hero, right? And I was reading about the kids who were getting the perfect attendance awards near the end of the year. And these young, beautiful faces, when you see them together and I really think in framing this seeing how tight knit this community of evolved is yeah, but I'm sick of it Julio Sabine, I know all of it. I got you. You know, we are. We're just so sick of it. And we also know that this could happen anywhere any time to anyone in the United States of America. So we're all like, why are we living here? Why are we living here? What does this mean? I remember a time. I mean, Harlem right now. I remember a time when people were like, oh my God, Harlem. Well, you know, you're such a scary neighbor. No. The thing is is that look at where the violence is happening. Because that's the other thing is is that Latinos, latinas, black people, we are everywhere. So if you're feeling targeted if you're feeling afraid, if you're feeling scared about your kids going to school, if you're feeling in general trembling, just inside because that's what we're all in a state of shock. And this data point, there have been more than 200 mass shootings in America in the United States in 2022 in this year. 27 of those have been in schools. Mass shooting if I believe correctly, it's one more than three people are shot. Right. And Clint Smith and the Atlantic cited that and 27 in schools, 27. I haven't been seeing those headlines though. And it's may, it's the end of May. Yeah. You know, Maria, we've been texting each other. Ever since Tuesday, right? And one of the things that we both saw instantly is how, like you just said, this could happen anywhere in America. So that no one in the United States is safe, right? In a lot of ways. And that's a bigger issue..
"uvalde" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Joe says what you did to the Yuval police department was unjustified the Texas Rangers have an infinite their investigation. You've marked the uvalde police department as a bunch of cowards. I have no tolerance for this BS. You can get in line with beta o'rourke. Oh, I'm sorry. I'm just reading from breitbart dot com, which is not The Washington Post about why there is an hour gap between the gunmen being completely and totally barricaded in and nothing happening. Can anyone answer that? Why were parents being tased and being detained? The gunmen did not exchange fire with a uvalde district police officer outside the school according to the timeline that police officer was not stationed at the school, but instead in a car nearby and rushed to the scene after the first calls came into a 9-1-1 gunman near the school around 1130 on Tuesday. As the officer arrived at the school the gunman was already approaching began firing at the school and entered according to the timeline within minutes other law enforcement arrived at the school, according to timeline two members of uvalde police department had entered the school. The government at that point had gone inside a pair of adjoining classrooms and was shooting according to the timeline. The two officers attempted to enter the classroom and were shot at that point they fell back they fell back as the shooting continued inside the classroom. He continued shooting through the wall and the door at law enforcement who were arriving outside the classroom. It was during those minutes law enforcement officials believed that the Gutman identified as we don't say the name killed most of that all the children inside the adjoining classroom. They were sporadic gunfire from the suspect until a tactical team arrived and killed until 1 p.m., according to the timeline. Got it. So there was an hour delta. Between actually neutralizing the shooter and the perimeter of police from the outside. Um. Cut 97 shows police officers trying to detain parents from trying to save their kids lives. Why are police officers doing that to parents play gut 97? Look at that bro they're all in there. The cops ain't doing, but standing outside. I can't be like that, man. Y'all can't be like that when there's people. Yes, I do get across the street. Because I'm having to deal with you. Get across the street. Are you gonna walk into that gate and get them? Parents trying to save their kids lives and police officers holding them back. There was a I just want to reinforce this. I'm not anti police. Again, people get so emotional. I love police. I said that early on. I'm against cowards. And police officers. That do not go in neutralize a shooter for one hour. A lot of explaining to do. I'm getting pretty upset the more I read about this. Latest reports, video published by The Washington Post, which notes at 1154 shows frustrated parents chastising police and trying to get into the school officials said the gunman was killed more than an hour later. So the police officers were babysitting parents while the gunman was murdering children. Got an email here from Keith, great listener. Hello, Charlie. This topic today has me shaking my head. I honestly do not know what to say. One question I have is who did these officers get their orders from that's exactly right Keith. Or maybe is it some sort of protocol to wait on S.W.A.T. or something? I don't know. I'm just asking questions. All in all, it's asinine cowardice and a plot to kill our children sickening. Look, that's what they're going to say. They're like, oh, well, look, the standard operating procedure. Who cares about the standard operating procedure? You got a gunman killing 19 kids. You're just going to listen to what the lawyers say every time you're going to go do what's right, save someone's life. At some point, the strong have to protect the weak. And this bystander effect is happening in every corner of our country, not my problem, not my problem, not me, like the rapist on the Philadelphia subway, not my problem. My kitty Genovese, not my problem, like Parkland shooting, not my problem, Columbine shooting, not my problem. And let me just say this, police officers are graded at a different level and they should be than just an everyday citizen. A police officer is sworn in. To protect the community. And some people say, well, Charlie the police officer has a gun just to protect themselves. If you're trying to tell me that under no moral argument, you think it's proper for a police officer to go man up and go in and go confront the coward to save children's lives..
