"Happen. I can let that one go. You know but if you don't know what's going on down there number one you're not gonna know yourself as truly as you actually can but number two like a garden if you don't get down there and start getting your hands dirty you're not gonna be able to pull up those weeds from the from the real. You're just gonna hack them off at the top they're going to grow right back and that's not a healthy way to deal with your mental health. And so i always tell my clients some of these things that come up will scare you. If there's something you actually are worried about. Take your therapist. I've talked to enough therapist. They want that thing. They don't want you coming in with your your everyday bs unless that's really sitting on you but most of the time what we bring our therapist is. I'm mad at my sister. Said this to me who cares. Who cares that. Your sister said this. I mean like do. You actually need her approval. Probably not. let's work on getting over her approval. So what you actually get to down there in your subconscious. That's the real thing. Those are the things about you that you are truly having trouble with. And that's what your therapist wants to work with you on so the question. I want to finish this off. Wei is really looking. What is it about mental health. That people misunderstanding. And what can we do differently. Well i would say if you go back to the earliest you know Mentions of mental health in our knowledge of human history. It's always people who were just different now. That's not to say that there aren't very serious. Struggles that need to be handled with love and treated as as you would a physical ailment right. Perfect example i have. I have a friend who just flat out refuses therapist. She went through some really traumatic stuff. She just will not go see a therapist and i keep telling her what you went through as if.
"wei" Discussed on Sean Carroll's Mindscape: Science, Society, Philosophy, Culture, Arts, and Ideas
"Sean carroll many times here on mindscape we've had issues dealt with philosophy right either explicitly about philosophy or talking about biology or physics or politics in a way that involved philosophy that almost always the kinds of lafi that we talked about were based on the western tradition of philosophy. Tradition goes back to the ancient greek socrates. Plato aristotle people like that we all know that's not the only tradition out. There is the tradition that i know the most about for better for worse. So it's harder for me to lead an intelligent conversation about other areas but for a long time. I thought that we should have a good conversation about eastern philosophy chinese philosophy in particular. There was a very very active set of schools of philosophy in ancient china about the same time as aristotle and his friends were inventing greek philosophy. The warring states period in particular was a period where you were inventing new ideas in confucianism taoism and other kinds of traditions. So obviously these are huge topics much too much to talk about in one podcast in any comprehensive way. But we're going to try to do it anyway. Today's guest is edward slinger lind who was a distinguished university scholar and professor of philosophy at the university of british columbia. So he's an expert in ancient chinese philosophy. He's translated confucius the whole bit. But one of the reasons why he's interesting to talk to is because he doesn't simply talk about that ancient philosophy for its own sake. He relates it to modern ideas. He tries to make the point that it is still a vibrant kind of set of ideas that relates an interesting ways to our current predicament. As human beings our current knowledge as scientists learning more about how we think how we act in the world in fact his most recent book is called drunk as in. You've had a lot to drink. You are now drunk. The subtitle is how we sipped danced and stumbled our way to civilization. So as i asked him. I maybe i shouldn't give it away. No i probably will as asked me the podcast. What does that have to do with ancient chinese philosophy..

Now you may be saying, Dan, Why do you say May Well, I'm saying we may be in possession of because there are two completely different versions of this event. And both of them can't be true. One version of the event by Ms Van large reporting. He said. Yes, Anonymous sources from the intelligence community are telling me we have this source. He's given up the mother lode. Matter Fact he's given up things I'll get to in a minute. That are so Incredible.

'New Legacy,' New Lola: Why 'Space Jam' wanted to do better by one Tune
"On on the new space Jam Way Got lots more information on the new space camp film called Space Jam. A new Legacy film stars LeBron James playing himself who has a young son Dong, who wants to become a game developer. They get trapped in a digital world by a rogue A I. And it's upto LeBron Bugs Bunny and the rest of the tune squad to get them out of there against the evil goon squad.

It's important to reflect the authenticity of strong capable female characters also said that this film is a better movie than space jam. All right, let's go. Better than the original space jam. That is a lofty goal. I believe it when I see it. LeBron James, though, is not even on the best team in the NBA right now. As of right now, that title goes to the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are 27 9 on the season. The next best teams in the league have 24 wins, so it was probably odd for them, at least when the two jazz players who are reserved for the NBA All Star game, Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert were picked dead last in the All Star draft by team captains LeBron James and Kevin Durant. James said it was because he never played as the Utah jazz and video games when he was younger. No shade. Though the Jazz is most recent game was a lost, however, to the Philadelphia 70. Sixers and things got heated on the court. Mitchell was injected with 30.5 seconds left in overtime. He smashed a cooler as he left the court. Both he and go bear had words for what they thought was bad officiating in that loss. They were then each fined for being critical of the rest. Mitchell $25,000 and go bare $20,000. All the drama. Remember when artist said today? Oh god. McKay was in Space Jam. She's also in this Ah, conversation with Rudy Gobert, as he reflects on the season and his legacy.

A Look At The Documentary The Great American Lie
"Edition on Edie. I'm Brian Watt from the pandemic to protest for police reform, systemic inequality has grown into a front and center issue in 2020. Recently released documentary film called The Great American Lie examines the roots of systemic inequality and some of the trauma that comes with it. It comes to us from filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom, who many of us also know as the first partner of California, and it features Bay Area educator Ruby Dee Tai, who has been a public school principal in Oakland. And is now one in San Francisco. I got a chance to talk to both of them late last week as the film was just hitting digital platforms. First, I asked Jennifer Siebel Newsom. What her film is about The film really is about the fact that our country is in a crisis. The American dream is out of reach for a majority of Americans and social immobility in economic inequality is as bad as it was just before the Great Depression. And when you bring Koven 19 into that it's even worse. Ruby. Let me bring you into this conversation. In this film. We see the effects of trauma on an entire community, particularly on a growing population of immigrant Children, newly arrived What is the hardest part about having to fight for opportunities for these young people? Today? The film really highlights where we are in society where we live around how poverty is so really, violence is so real, especially are students who have come from other countries. Their experience. Getting here is it's traumatic in itself, right? And then they move into East Oakland, and they don't really recognize their own trauma. We have a school that's in the centre of East Oakland that is serving families that are in poverty and so with poverty comes experiences that we don't anticipate in everyday life, so the film highlights some of those experiences. Actually, Can we hear a clip from Ruby Dee tie from the film right now? Wei served a very high population of students who are in foster care. A lot of homeless families. My students come with no supplies. No backpack didn't eat. They come with that is in jail. My father was taken from our family and deported last night. Eliska. Lt's on a non of what they bring. And if they have a bad day, and they rolled their eyes then now you take it personally as an adult. I'm trying to imagine what all of that is like When you lay over it. The situation we are in with the pandemic. How challenging is that climate right now. It's extremely challenging, because now we're in not only an economic divide, but it's really brought to surface with the digital divide in our communities and with the fact that students are doing school at home, So when some student you know, may not have a death may not have their own bedroom may not have Internet access. So school districts, especially our San Francisco is rushing out trying To find resource is to get students Chromebooks to get hot spots and encompassed with all of that you have the stress of the parents who could have lost their job may not be getting unemployment because they have come to this country and they're not may not be documented. So they have lost all resource is and so that the stress of that as a parent on top of trying to make sure that your child is Joining that gym call, But maybe you have to go to work or you found another job. So you're not at home and now students, you know if you're 11 or 12 you rather you want to join a zoom or want to play a video game I need. You're still a child. So Our students are even in more needed. Jennifer Siebel Newsom you want in this film, not just to show how tough everything is, but also to provide a sense of hope. Where you finding hope For me. The hope lies in the fact that we see the humanity in each other. We closed the film with this concept that it is incumbent upon herself recognized that if there is somebody suffering or struggling or pour that perhaps that person doesn't have boots or boot straps with which to pull themselves up. And out of poverty. Perhaps that person wasn't born on first dates, but they were actually born outside of the ball park. Therefore, we have to emphasize and recognize that not only we failed that child or that individual, but we failed that entire communities, and I think there's a beautiful national conversation going on right now. It's certainly uncomfortable for a lot of people. It's a conversation about privilege. Ruby detail I I can't resist the chance to ask someone who has been an educator on both sides of the Bay East Oakland. And San Francisco unified about how this conversation sounds in those two different places in our region. You know, the interesting thing about education is it really puts a lot of responsibility on the leaders and I would say while in my time and open unified Think we had four different superintendent in an eight year period, so the conversation is always changing. Unfortunately, I think people and people, especially who get in the work of education, want to do better and want to do better for students who are economically disadvantaged and Students of color. I do believe that on both sides of the bay, especially in our country right now, I think the conversation is at the forefront The racism work that we have to do. As educators that is prevalent in San Francisco Unified that is something that is a district goal and mandate. Every single employee had to complete anti racist training the school year in the kickoff of distance learning, there's this idea that we talked about it a lot. But really, what does that mean? When it comes down to how We fund And how we create resource is for the highest need communities and or schools within a district I challenged. Our superintendent asked themselves and even the community members of district of parents of these districts. Would you send your child to that school? And if the answer is no. Then why does that school exists? Thanks to both of you for talking to us about this. Thanks for having us Thank you.

The health status of those in Trump's orbit
"Has the number of White House staff members and GOP officials infected with the Corona virus grows. President Trump has tried to show strength in videos released during his stay at Walter Reed. But his medical treatment including a steroid typically reserved for more severe cases of Cove in 19 is raising questions about his health status and ability to govern also trumps SUV ride to way to supporters gathered outside the hospital is drawing criticism for risking the health. Of his security detail and potentially hospital staff. We look at the implications of all of this with Dr Ezekiel Emanuel, former Obama White House health policy advisor. And vice provost of global initiatives of the University of Pennsylvania. Thanks so much for joining us, Dr Ezekiel Emanuel Thank you for having me a pleasure also with us. Jessica Levinson, a professor at Loyola Law School. Thanks so much for joining us as well discuss Levinson. Thanks for having me back. So, Dr Emanuel, I'll start with you. And I guess I'll just start with this SUV ride to supporters outside the hospital. I mean, you've called this decision shameful. Can you tell me why concerned you so much? A horse of all There was no need for it. No urgent need. Second of all, the president has got cove it and he should be recuperating. He is the leader of the Free world. On DH. Ah, he's sick, right? How do we know we think? Well, he's gotten the Regeneron Antibody cocktail. He's on run desert here is an ex amethyst so he should not be going out on the last thing is on may be. The most irresponsible thing he did is He is putting other people at rest the people who walked him down in the hospital, the secret Service in the car, just not a responsible thing to do. And it's sort of echoes to me the irresponsible behavior he demonstrated when he went to see off his potential donors in New Jersey knowing full well he had symptoms that were consistent. With a cove it and he probably knew he was covert infected on Thursday. What do you make of the fact then, since this is what his White House spokesman said that this ride was cleared by the medical team as safe to do. Wei have questions about that medical team and their judgment. They have not been forthcoming with the American public. That's putting it mildly. They've lied and evaded questions that are necessary for the public to make a decision about the president. On DH. Ah, many of us have some question about the wisdom of the therapeutic interventions that they're doing layering on decks, amethyst sewn onto the other medications that he's taking. So you know, I'm not. I don't have overwhelming confidence in their judgment. And even if the patient wanted to do it, you're the doctor. You're the expert in health care. You're also the supposed to be the expert in the spread of the disease and putting other people at risk. And none of it seems wise. Yes, I definitely want to talk more about the medications he's on. But first Jessica Levinson, I mean, Dr Emanuel is talking about the You know the reason that the public does need to know what his condition is. Can you talk more about that, in terms of what the public does have a right to know and why it's so important because you've mentioned national security concerns. Absolutely. And what a pleasure to be on with Dr Manual. And I will say that you if President Trump was Mr Trump than his medical history is really in his medical prognosis. It's really his own business. But he is somebody who's put himself in a position of enormous public trust. If the president has the sniffles, it's potentially A global issue and add to that the idea that the president has a potentially deadly disease in the middle of a pandemic dealing with that disease going right into an election. We're not before an election. We are in the election. Two million people have cast early votes were voting early in California. As of now, we're dealing with other serious National issues like wildfires and the idea that we would not have a full and fair accounting of the president's health. It's not just that it lacks transparency for the American public. It means that again. It's part of a consistent narrative that we don't know what to trust. We can't evaluate what's happening and again. This is not a private citizen. This is somebody who has enormous power over our lives. Enormous power on a not just the national but an international stage and It's deeply irresponsible that we would be kept in the dark about what is going on The fact that he would have doctors out there is aiding questions that they would say later. Oh, we just wanted to keep it. Upbeat tone instead of a truthful tone is something that the American public frankly should not have to stand for.

"There the workers who have spent the pandemic in the air at airports or taking care of planes. I dreamed of being a flight attendant when I was a little girl. So my dreams came true. Um, I have my dream job. And so I have been asking myself like, what do you do when you lose your dream job? Where do you go from there? I don't have any answers right now. Annette Hall has worked as a flight attendant for united for the past seven years. Her last flight was just a week ago, I asked one of my co workers to take a picture of me.

Ravage the airline industry Jalabad her first house past October 1st. My future is like a big black hole. There's a lot of innocent people whose lives are being held in the balance, and we're all on a precipice right now. Back in March, the airlines received $25 billion from the U. S government from the payroll support program through the CARES act. Thie airline industry has been begging lawmakers for Mohr. Even taking their message to Capitol Hill. We must continue the payroll support program that has been the most effective jobs program of Corona virus relief. The most effective use of the public's money. And so on a balance sheet. Everyone agrees. Nick Calio is CEO of Airlines for America, which represents the major U. S Airlines.

"Now, as we just heard, China's navy is acting live fire drills near the Taiwan Strait. There's little doubt about the intended audience because in the slender credit, where'd you file of us? President Donald Trump remains his phone call shortly after his election to President Chang of Taiwan the first time the US president or indeed president-elect had spoken to the Taiwanese counterpart since nine hundred, seventy, nine, president trump clearly understands that there is no more reliable way of winding. Up China then embracing Taiwan, which may be why he has now dispatched the highest ranking American envoy in decades kaethe crutch on the secretary of State for Economic Growth Energy and the environment, a rank which seems calibrated to annoy China even more by making any overt rage on their part appears somewhat silly one joined with more on this by Isabel Hilton CEO of China. Dialogue is a bill first of all the the visit of chief crash and I've allowed time for everybody to furiously Google is just trolling on America's part. And Up to a point you you left often you know one elements in the winding up of list, which is that he's there to attend the memorial service for former president of Taiwan, Li dung-wei who has counted as the most hated Taiwanese in Beijing because leading Guay was the man who really lead Taiwan to democracy and was also an advocate of Taiwan as kind of independent cultural and political entity from China. So he's really not very you know he's definitely not on the Christmas, Card List for sheeting pin and to pay tribute to him is pretty certainly would be read in Beijing as a as a a further effort crime. So what degree of C- Will Beijing be at over this visit? Well I think we're seeing it now. I mean a great deal of of rather dangerous firepower is buzzing around at the moment An. We've seen really since June kind of escalating provocation from China, in sort of entering various kind of buffer zones which are pretty much being respected for decades you know around Taiwan that you can you can threatened and rattler cage but on the whole, it's been recognized that if you if you cross certain. Lines then you are risking at least an accident so. I mean the the the problem was that you know. In. The last well, just today actually eighteen Chinese bomas an and find the jets and Taiwan's advance buffer zone and that caused the cost Taiwan to scramble its jet. You had a lot of very you know serious. Flying around and I think that. Is and that along with the naval exercises and and a great deal of rhetoric is probably as far as it will go. But you know we have seen a prolonged campaign for the last three or four years of diplomatic isolation of kind of steady pressure on Taiwan from China, and certainly this doesn't help. You correctly observed that the US envoy is there to attend the memorial service for a former Taiwanese president. He will also be meeting with the current Taiwanese president is likely that anything of actual substance is being discussed between the president of one country and the Under Secretary of state for you know whatever from the other one or is this again? Largely. Theatrical. I wouldn't count on it being largely theatrical If you know we, we've wh as you know, we have a kind of dealing confrontation between the US and China and some alarming voices in Washington. Are, advocating, for example, the United States should supply nuclear weapons to Taiwan, which would be pretty crazy move in my view. But. There is a commitment from the United States to supply to Taiwan such a defensive Capability as is required now, it would be quite easy to argue that in a situation of enhanced tension greater a military supplies, more more military supplies. Packs more advanced military supplies were required and I would expect that to be part of the conversation I would also expect at least saying went to be exploring the idea of more formal cooperation between Taiwan and the United States last US official. To visit, which was relatively recently that produced an agreement on of collaboration on health I think timing when would very much like to see a free trade agreement with the United States. So again, I think this quite a lot to discuss an I would be surprised if this visit took place without some of them being on the table is anything really likely to shift in the near future though in any direction where this is concerned is everybody involved not basically biting their tongues and one hopes. Metaphorically as well as literally holding their fire until election day in the United States and certainly hope so you know the the US position on Taiwan, which is a it's a treaty obligation to to make sure that Taiwan can defend itself. This doesn't actually commit the United States to coming to the defense of Taiwan, but there is a kind of strategic ambiguity in in this treaty, which is designed to stop Taiwan declaring independence and therefore provoking China to stop China assuming that were it to. Stage a military salt. The. United. States would stand by and and not come to the defense of Taiwan. So the ambiguity in the US position is designed to keep both sides. Calm. Under a trump administration of calm is not a highly valued factor in Washington's calculations but I think. That the hope would be in Washington that enough kind of chest bearing and beating. We'll just keep everybody from doing anything too rash said, he don't think that China would relish an armed conflict, but on the other hand if the United States and Taiwan scenes to provocative in Beijing, in order to satisfy, it's increasingly nationalist domestic opinion and a PLA that seems fairly rested at the moment they might feel obliged to do something and as soon as you do something in a situation like this, then your provoking something very, very dangerous indeed

"Tell me where you're at here. And it gets down now, when? When you look at the statistics, you know everybody from the beach to the various medical societies say about 2.5 million people suffer constipation. I would almost think that you could almost double that number. What? What do you think? Correct If actually, you know, there are a couple of things that needed to settle in conservation by common for some people's transient and one of things. For example, When people travel, they often become constipated because maybe they are traveling in an aeroplane can lead to some changes, which may promote constipation. Then they changed their food intake. More important than probably changed their diets. So transient constipation is very common but chronic constipation. You're absolutely correct. I would say it's more like 10 or 15% of the population, right? And of course, you know, one of the things born things were conservations that it doesn't get more common as you get older, And it is one of the pardons that you and I bear as Wei Wei have to conceive that I thought we were immune from that. Amy and I have sorry, George.

And totally not being researched. Debate should be his constipation. Distress. I see for people who cannot have a normal bowel movement is incredible. Well, you know, under peace. Oh, it is and ah, you know, you know, and and for full disclosure here. You you were my teacher many, many years ago at university. Nebraska and have developed a fondness for you. But you taught me well. But I as a hepatology ist I see at least one or two patients every day. That have nothing. Nothing wrong with their liver. They're coming to me for abdominal pain to the point that they are seeing surgeons. They're going to the E. R and I hate to say in all of 10 minutes I'm like you're constipated, and it is so distressing that it is almost at epidemic levels today compared to 10 years ago. Are you seeing the same trend and it's a lot of young people. Yes, I think there are a lot of factors involved here. I think you know there's obviously dietary factors right? There's no question that, you know, High fibre diet, which is the traditional happy like who die as a ruby or people live in the country. In contrast to the highly processed died, people live in orbit areas. The new quest that died is a factor You remember Ah, now I remember very well. A gentleman called Dennis Parkas. Yes, who was actually a missionary doctor in Africa for many years to death a number of years now, But they made a critical observation when he worked in Africa, and that is that he didn't see constipation and ruin. Africans didn't see diverticular disease didn't see hemorrhoids and he related this Correctly. I believe to the fact that these grew in African people didn't even out of meat. But they have a lot of high fiber foods, which of course, resulted in the assault. Bulk is too, which is easy to pass. It didn't cause constipation. Our driver take their disease are hemorrhoids are based on the problem. So I think that was a critical observation, I think remains true to this day. And I think, you know You know, certainly started segments of the population have become aware of this and our, you know, easy, more fiber eating more vegetables.

Former Republican Governor of Michigan Endorses Biden for President
"Endorsed Joe Biden for president. He said President Donald Trump was not covering in the interest of the entire nation. I was at the nation's Capitol when Trump gave his inaugural address. I had hoped this first speech as president would be a message to unify divided nation. Instead, I heard a speech directed at how It would help the people who supported him. And sadly, that is how President Trump continues to govern. That's what he wrote in the USA today and then the free press governor. Snyder also criticized the president's 2017 tax cut and said Trump's foreign policy had produced some good agreements, but overall, our nation is no longer respected as a leader on world affairs. Jonas is Dick. Hey, Verner, Dick Wei talked a little bit about this yesterday. You weren't terribly surprised by this, But we're gonna have former governor Rick Snyder on in a little bit. And there are a few things I'm curious about. And one of those is and I wanted to get your take on. This is If the Republican governor doesn't like trump, and clearly he doesn't. Why not suggest ah, not endorse anybody? Or maybe endorsed some other great Republican as a write in candidate just to show your displeasure with the president. Why go so far as to Endorse a Democrat to endorse Joe Biden. Is there something about Joe Biden? He likes so much that's going to make him a great president. If he's just making a statement that Donald Trump is not not his guy. Why not endorse whoever his favorite Republican is as a writer? That's good question. That's a very good question. Because the governor Snyder says he is still East still considers himself Are Republicans. So why vote and why come out for a Biden, for example, his good friend John Kasich ran for president. Then he dropped out. Why not write in John Kasich as Hey, has the person he votes for? So that's a good question. Another good question would be what Policies of Trump. Does he support He can't be against everything that Trump has done has got to be something there that he likes because they're both Republicans. And he, after all, is the governor who several years ago. Boosted supported ram through and sign the lot. The right to work law in Michigan, making It's a ah ah, situation where we're workers that Aaron, a union covered by a union contract can drop out of the union and still be covered. By the terms of the contract, something that unions viral it Lee against. He was the right toe work Governor. So that was a very conservative move on his part, something that would be ah. Aligned with what the Trump administration is done on so many issues, So yeah. Ah, you raise a very good point, And I think I think that there's just something much bigger than this. I think I was reading a little bit of cut the Lincoln Project Republicans against Trump, but they are I think they're going to be coming out. Today, with maybe hundreds of businesspeople, politicians, people who say they've been Republicans for a long time coming out and say, both for Joe Biden. And that's just interesting to me. Why they don't voice their displeasure against Donald Trump More than vote for Joe Biden does. If you're a true Republican, wouldn't you think? Four years of of the Democratic president would do more harm than four years of president. Republican president that you just think is a jerk. Basically. Yeah, well, I'm I'm sure that you will have the freedom to ask that question of the governor also if the governor comes out again Against President Trump. And for Biden, one of the high profile members of the Trump administration is Betsy DeVos. Betsy DeVos, who would have been a Big Snyder supporter Back in the day one. Snyder was governor. This would seem to Ah cut off the good relations that he would have with Betsy DeVos, Dick DeVos and the DeVos. Organization and forces in Michigan. What what does he Snyder Ah. Think about that is he Is he through with the divorce is or can he maintain some sort of a friendly relations with them, even though he comes out against Trump If it comes out against Trump, he comes out against Betsy DeVos. Right and I also wonder does does this make Republicans think twice about voting for Donald Trump? Or does this make Republicans think less of Rick Snyder? Well, I'm not the judge of that you had you had posed the question Previously. Does this persuade Republican voters? I'm not sure that people look Any more at the endorsements of anyone. In fact, sometimes I think when we hear about a political figure endorsing somebody else for office It's quite a Ah, it's quite a bodacious action on their part, thinking that they're so important that their endorsement is is needed. Bye bye. The voters that we just have to know who they support or who they don't. I'm not sure that Snyder, even even the endorsement of a governor. Ah, former governor is that important to voters anymore? Republicans or Democrats cave after

And one day I just went out to these large screens that we have in the backyard. I sprayed it on a little area. And I mean it made 10 year old son screens Look brand new. So we went after we just sprayed all the screens, and I mean they do They literally look brand new, and those screens are almost 15 years old. And what is it?

"When they realize that they're not the traffic is still is going around them in a detour. Then they say, this is the argument. State Patrol used that it was It was safer. What they didn't calculate on well enough, apparently, after all, this was 19 days in where they were doing this 19 nights, I guess. They didn't calculate that someone would intentionally You know, go around barriers to get at them. Now it's true. We don't know enough about motive at this point, but what we do know is again based on the eyewitness accounts. It sounds like this person had to go. And I guess if you're drunk, I can see maybe you, you know, entering the the off ramp unthinking. It's an unwrapped, but they said there were no drugs in the system or no. You know, no sign of impairment, which that seems intentional. But if they if it also if they also had to drive around the barriers. That's that Seems more intentional or not, And I think at that point I realized Oh, this might be enough. A big scene for you know, for perhaps Auntie protester types that they would actually go against the grain and not just be a regular flow of traffic. They decide now we better We better just shut it all off documents. What was the violence? So walk me through it? Because you said they wanted to stop the violence. So here comes the group of 30 people. They come marching down pine or whatever. Then they want to get on I five explain where the violence begins to occur is that when the police tried to stop them, no violence, they meant what they said was. They didn't want any car pedestrian incidents. And so they figured the bit the easiest way to do that was to divert traffic because they were at the time when they first started. This, there were like 200 at the time, and that was too many people to stop. From getting on the freeway. So why? Why? Why? Why? Why is 200 people too many to stop? If you know that they're going to illegally go onto the highway. It's so the violence occurs when you're trying to stop the 200 sir, just like we give up the East Free silence, just like we give up the East precinct trying to stop violence. Just give it up the East precinct and remove the barriers. So therefore there's no friction. We decide what we'll let 200 people go and dance on the highway. We'll close the highway down to protect them so they can dance. And then we'll open and then they leave right. So the idea is the violence would have her. If you tried to stop the doing of the violence could occur if you protected the East Precinct, right? Well, first off. I don't know what you're fixating on the word violence. Only violence I rising is the car violence against the people. If the car hit people, people would get hurt. Maybe the people in the car would get hurt as well. They were trying was a form of de escalation, and they don't have enough cops. To stop this because all this other stuff is going on remembered. Most of these were happening while chop was still in existence. OK, Wei have all these other incidents that the cops have to follow. They decided this is most effective and for 19 days and more or less, was it inconvenienced people, But they were fewer and fewer protesters. If this unfortunate thing hadn't happened, it might have kind of, you know, sort of resolves itself peacefully. Through sheer acts of boredom with a chop ended after they marched on the mayor's yard and chop ended after that kid got killed. A second person got killed that was in the shower. This ends after this woman gets run down by this guy in this car. Here's the black lives matter. These air black lives matter. Women's March organizers. I guess these are the ones that were out there. Breaking the law on the highway at approximately 1:38 a.m. life forthe four suspects with a camcorder were spotted in the bushes alongside the freeway. Every way in which State Patrol blocked for the protest, however, the state patrol left one off him open. White Jaguar people use that offer him and went in the wrong direction. The vehicle, then proceeded to drive around our barricade and deliberately hit our protesters. Vehicle attempted to turn around and hit us again, but our security vehicles chased down perpetrator stopping the second attack. For what? Suspects in the bushes, recording the attempted murder, fled the scene and are still at large. This targeted attack her life with this was.
