Ben Shapiro on the Michael Brown Shooting

"I'm old enough to remember when Barack Obama went out there during the Ferguson riding and said, people don't make up things like this. He was talking about the Michael Brown shooting Michael Brown shooting by the way, it was a good shoot. In fact, it turns out that after another review of the Michael Brown shooting by officer Darren Wilson, it turns out five years after the six years after the case, the case has been dismissed again, according to the Daily wire. Amanda Prestigiacomo reporting ST Louis County Prosecuting attorney Wesley Bell announced on Thursday he will not be bringing charges against former Ferguson Police Department officer Darren Wilson were fatally shot Michael Brown, 18 back in 2014. Ring, a Thursday press conference. They'll announced the news by prefacing it as quote one of the most difficult things I've had to do, noting that his heart breaks before the Browns. The question for the office was a simple one could prove beyond a reasonable doubt. And when Darrin Wilson shot Michael Brown, he committed murder or manslaughter under Missouri law, Bell asked after an independent and in depth review of the evidence, we cannot prove that he did. He, by the way, is the county's first blast. Black prosecutor he reopen, reopen the case after taking office. One of the reasons he gained office is because of disapproval for no case against Darren Wilson, the first place and then he looked at the evidence, he said, Sorry. We can't actually make a case at his office conducted a five month review of witness statements, forensic reports and other evidence, the AP noted, adding his investigation does not exonerate Darren Wilson. But it's not the way the criminal justice process works. If you're not convicted, that doesn't mean you're not. Exactly that does not mean that you are exonerated. There is no exonerated standard in criminal law. There's just not prosecuted. So you also get to Claire not exonerated. That's not the way this works. L said. I know this is not the result they were looking for and that the pain will continue forever. Jim tally, Wilson's attorney noted Belle's review had the same conclusion as Bells predecessor. A grand jury and the usdoj was Obama's deal J. By the way, there was no crime. The Obama Justice Department at the time, pointed out that there was no crime but doesn't matter. Democrats have continued to lie about the Michael Brown shooting and use it as the basis for a political campaign to suggest that America and police officers are deeply

"Welcome back to the Mark Reardon show Red Young sitting in for the vacationing Mark Reardon. So On with our Reardon Lis round table. You know who we're talking to. Today? Jean Evans, executive director of the Missouri Republican Party, and Jeff Smith, former Democrat senator and critically acclaimed author. I want to change topics a little bit here because the other one of the other big stories of the week involved Wesley Bell. And ST Louis County Prosecutor Wesley Bell yesterday finally answered the question that has followed him really, since the beginning of his political campaign. Will he charge former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the 2014 shooting death of Michael Brown? The answer? We now know is no. So I'm gonna go to Eugene because Jean Did we need to reopen this can of worms. Was this necessary? And what do you think of the way Wesley Bell handled this? Well, I think he came to the right conclusion. I mean, this was investigated by Obama's Justice Department. A CZ. Well, as you know, Obama cough when he was in an office, so I don't know why he felt that he needed to do that. But he did, and he came to the same conclusion. Unfortunately, it sparked more protests. Um, I don't think I don't think that continuing to look at that case. Helps anybody And that doesn't mean that we don't need to do more toe hold. All of our public servants accountable whether they're police there anyone anyone else, But I don't think continuing to push on this case, which, clearly that police officer did everything he was supposed to do. It just had unfortunate ending. I don't think that was the right tactic to take. Hopefully, now we can just put this to rest forever. Jeff. Why? Why is it that this is an ongoing lingering issue, And you think that Wesley Bell made the right call? Yeah, I think you know again as team said he made the same call as the DOJ. As the investigation by the DOJ uncovered, most of the witnesses accounts either corroborated or leaned more towards Officer Wilson's account. Ban the original account that that Michael Brown's counterpart had given, some of which he later retracted. And so I think he came. Tio Wesley Bell came to the right conclusion he had promised as part of his campaign that he would take a close. Look at this. The issues arising from Ferguson were some of the key issues that motivated Wesley to run for county prosecutor in the first place. And I think he felt it felt like he owed it to the citizens of the county and the people who had helped get him elected to take another look at this, and I think it dumb. Uh, it's a it can, As Jean said, hopefully put this to bed and let us get to what we ought to be doing, which is looking the underlying issues which contributed And continue to contribute to lingering inequalities in the ST Louis region and get to work trying Tio fulfill a lot of the recommendations from the Ferguson report. Also in the news. Obviously this weekend coming up on Tuesday, August 4. We've got the primary election so that the big news here, of course, is ST Louis County executive that the Democrat primary race They're going to choose the presumptive county executive. We've got Sam Page We've got Markman Vanni, Jake Zimmerman and Jamie Toliver. I want to go back to you, Gene. A cz. You look at this race. A race relations and the response to covert 19 are those the two defining issues for this race. I think they're pretty big and you know this is a Democrat race and I'm not a Democrat. So it's it's going to be up to Democrat voters. If you don't mind. I'd like to do a little public service message. Because I've been getting so many calls about this. There are a lot of people who are going to go to the polls and vote this primary. You've never voted in the primary before, And they don't understand that they have to pull a ballot for a particular party. So if they want to vote in the Republican primary, we have two candidates than they would pull. Way of two candidates for that race, they would pull a Republican ballot. If they want to vote on the county executive the Democratsside, then they need to ask for that ballot and vote on that side the same thing in the city. I know we have city residents who want to be involved in the prosecuting attorney's race or the circuit attorneys Q B. And maybe they'd never voted before, So they need to make sure they pull the right ballot and have an information before they go to the polls, But I'm not sure what's gonna happen here. This is a really interesting race, especially if they're being four way. I think Jamie Toliver being the only female and the only African American gives her an edge, even though she has lower name I d. But when you're ever you're the on ly one of something Only female. I think you get a little bit of an edge, so we'll see what happens. But I think it's going to be a pretty think it's gonna be a pretty close and highly watched race. I'm sure Jeff agrees with that. But Jeff how What do you see is the main issues in this race and from your perspective? Do you see any of the on the Democratsside? Do you see any of them in particular having an edge? First. If Jean believes that that Jamie Caliber has the edge than I just like to see it right now, for you know, with your listening audience there, 15 would like to make a bet you a steak dinner on whether or not she wins, since you think she has the edge. I don't think she's going to win. I just think that she will. Even though she has a raised into money, I think that she's going to get more support than people might think, because she doesn't have a lot of the mighty No, I'm not taking it that nice. Tried O okay. I'm always looking to get a steak dinner. Whatever. I can't. So one of the issues that play is what you asked Brad And I think coming out of the Steve Stenger, Uh Debacle in the county. I think people were looking not for the most charismatic Democrat, not for the most ideological or, you know, super liberal Democrat I think people were looking, you know, largely for confidence and not a ton of charisma, and I think in the middle of a pandemic People generally theme to be comfortable with having someone whose political and policy decisions are informed by his medical background. That's not to say Brad that he's making decisions as a physician. I do think it's helpful to be ableto understand? As I said, I understand the data and understand..

"ST. Louis County prosecutor reveals his office has been conducting a secret five month long review of the Michael Brown case to determine whether the Ferguson officer who shot and killed Brown should face charges. Prosecutor Wesley Bell says he cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Darren Wilson committed either murder or manslaughter. I also want to be clear That our investigation does not exonerate Darren Wilson. The question of whether we can prove a case at trial is different. Been clearing him of any and all wrongdoing. There's so many points at which Dan Wilson could have handled the situation differently. The 2014 shooting death was also investigated by the previous ST Louis County prosecutor and the U. S. Department of Justice under President Obama. Both reached the same outcome that there wasn't enough evidence to charge the officer with a crime. A couple of local mayor spent Thursday morning packing 75,000 pieces of personal protective equipment for smaller cities and towns up and down the Mississippi River.

"The results of a secret five month review of the Darren Wilson case. The ST Louis County prosecutor has announced there will be no charges filed against the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown. The question for this office was a simple one. Could we prove beyond a reasonable doubt? Then when Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown, he committed murder. Or manslaughter. Under Missouri law, this is Kevin Killeen. ST. Louis County prosecutor Wesley Bell says the evidence wasn't there. And he would have also had to prove that self defence was not a factor as Brown scuffled with Wilson trying to take the officer's gun. What I hope is that People who are watching this understand that way. Put the time We We did a thorough And detailed investigation. The last farm road, you know, But even as Bell was leaving the podium, Ferguson activist heckled him, saying it's over. He will never serve more than one term that the investigation was not good enough. Kevin Colleen Saint Louis News radio came Alexe.

Is there any other way to make it happen at this point when you know that the other side is going to be playing this game? And they're never going to give you the funding for it.

Like when the cardinals lose like, I'm in a horrible mood all day still. I do I'm in a bad mood. You know, and I'm the I'm petty like that like the team that I hate most is always the team. That's beat the cardinal. You know, the the giants. I hate the giants. I I don't understand anyone who like my mom when the cubs were in the World Series a couple years ago, we have family in Chicago. So she was like kinda rooting because. Well, they've never won our families up there. I'm like mom, are you serious? You don't hear mechanic, and I love my mother's best friend in the world. I didn't talk to her for a day. It's horrible. I know that it's the problem. And so I'm trying to develop some emotional maturity when it comes to the the cardinals and the and Mizzou, and I'm I hate the Rams because they left that something by the entire retake down and trying not to be pettily. But I I don't like the way it's more cranky. It's more crimes. They kicked the region on the way out the door. They lied and kind of what we're talking about early. You know, stand up and said, hey, I can't blame you for wanting to move to LA. But don't let I think that's what we don't kick the body on the way out the door. I don't get for the life. We supported them more. So than they're being supported in fans there than the calcium. The Rams fans are undefeated we still get higher. Nielsen ratings for Rams games. Hate wifely Tate washing. It's hard. And now they're gonna go onto. Mizzou football moments or any Mizzou football moment. One of my favorite events. I've ever been to for real like I've been lucky enough to go to a lot of these things beating Kansas to become number one and two thousand seven Tom reasoning has the sod and his helmet as they come off the field anything stand out to you. 'cause we've had some good fortune here over the last ten or eleven years with being a win away from playing for the national championship. Whoever thought that when we were down there. Yeah. I agree. I agree. And and this is a another emotional episode with me because one of my best friends is an oh you fan. So he's been torment Kim strawbridge will probably be listening to this. He is tormented tormented me because he's usually been on the winning side in. I think that was the year where we were one game away. Title rate of the worst still upset about that. And so we've had a lot of heartache as masseuse visit fifth down. And I'm telling you in the in the in when we started talking about Mizzou history that pass interference call last week is one of them. And I'm not one that I know how hard it is to be an official referee. I know that's tough. But that's Deccan Jewish. That was a horrible call. We had an opportunity to beat the number two team in the nation, and it was taken. Now, there's some things that we did that mess it up. So I'm trying to think of, you know, I'm I'm probably with you is, you know, just getting there close to the national title, which I would've never thought. Yeah. And that the the the game against the was it Auburn Auburn in two thousand thirteen or Trey Mason raises yards gain to walk into the building that day and go oh my God. Glove game. Yes. Yes. Yes. I mean, he's got gloves. Seriously, make them throw. Club. But I try not to are on the negative stuff. But his Mizzou fans is hard not to because it, you know, but we've we have some good runs. And. Yeah..

"Less likely to re-offend your biggest demographic of offenders are refunders. And so if we start. Addressing the issue. Stop trying to prosecute our way out of addiction. Because the the traditional motto is prosecute them. At the minimum put him on probation. Now, my conviction rate goes higher. But all you do is exacerbate the addiction because our jails aren't the best of rehabilitating people. And now, they are less marketable. They can't get a job. And so if if if you're an individual who man, I can go out on the streets and make a couple of thousand a week four. I can go the straight and narrow and get a job at a fast food restaurant making minimum wage, and then we scratch our head when people re-offend so what we gotta do is start catching those non violent offenders before they progress to the violent offenses that makes us safer. It saves us taxpayer dollars. We clear it costs about thirty thousand dollars a year to incarcerate someone you save ten to fifteen thousand dollars per year. When you use these kind of programs for nonviolent offenders. And then lasted helps people. So it's a win win across the board. It brings your crime rates down Kansas City, which has half our population half the population of Saint Louis county. They have eighty percent more people in drug treatment than we do. Saint Louis county treats about seventy five people a year out of one point one million people. That's it our mental health doctors, and you can all go on the Oscar website. And look this up yourself. You can look at the mental health. Treatment program in Saint Louis county. We're talking about through the courts, and this is a lot to do with the prosecutor's office. We know that one in four Americans are struggling with mental health issues. We know that with the those who come in contact with the Justice system fifty to sixty percent needs some kind of mental health care there. Twelve people in the mental health treatment docket and Saint Louis county twelve not twelve hundred at twelve thousand twelve in. So when we're lacking these people up with mental health issues now violent offenders, guess what they come out. Now, they are more likely to reinvent. So when I'm looking at doing we're going to be smart, we're going to we're going to stop focusing so many resources on lack in non violent offenders up. Now violent offenders up. We got partners who are already jumping in the fold like a Finney who who is going to be working with us to expand our health care our treatment programs, and we're going to be able to take those same. Prosecutors who would be spending countless hours on non. Violent crime such as drug drug possession. And now we can reallocate them to the violent and serious crimes. And I think that's going to keep us safer, and it's shown to keep us safer in bring our crime rates. Now that is some fascinating data. I think a lot of people probably aren't aware of the vast majority of the numbers that you just stated one of the things that I've found in traveling around the country, whether it be on the road with the cardinals for spring training or just going on vacation you say where are you from Saint Louis? Oh, man..

"That's a different ball game. You're going to be held accountable. But we're, but we know that most people don't jump right into violent crimes they start at nine violent crimes. And if we catch him there, give them the treatment the tools, they need the job skills. The mental health care. They are significantly less likely to progress to the violent crimes, and so we're going to expand that and there's another win that we get out of that by not focusing so many resources on misdemeanor marijuana. Possession which is not harming anyone. Now, we can take those same men hours those same woman hours, and we allocate them to the series in violent crimes. So now, not only are we helping people at the low levels who aren't who don't threaten the community, and they just need help. But now we have more resources to focus on the series stuff. Yeah. That's that's something I think's gonna catch a lot of people's attention. I think and I could be wrong on this. But on election night. The biggest news was your win. And I think in part because people didn't even realize that that Bob McCulloch was in a position to lose. I really think that was part, especially as we know Saint Louis is divided and especially south of del mar. So to speak more going, whoa. What's what's what's going on here? So let's start with your campaigning your decision to run. What was your thought process when you decided to run for this office? So I I think there's three things that you need to do if you're going to run for office. So if anybody cares. A my thoughts here. Yeah, I one you gotta you can't can see particular areas. You can't go in San. Hey, I'm only going to focus on one group. No. If you're the county prosecutor you represent all the Saint Louis county. And so we weren't going to say, hey, we're just gonna focus in north county may county. Now, we went out and actively campaigned in South County and west county. I wanted to make sure everyone out there felt that they had a voice in the reforms in the in in our administration. And I thought that was important to set that tone early. I think you have to Secondly, you gotta you gotta you gotta look at the numbers. You got to you have to put a plan together. You gotta put cook people around you. I'm I was fortunate to have some really good people Josie Nielsen who's here's who's here in studio. The Rhonda Wilson who's worked on every? Campaign people like Preston for who's always been supportive. But so me in so many of his name names because then I'll started leaving people out love you guys if you. But you want to get good people in place put a plan together and execute that plan. You know, one thing that I learned early is that there's going to be a lot of. There's going to be a lot of pitfalls. There's going to be a lot of distractions. But when you're on the defense for losing you gotta stick to your plan. You're gonna hear Laszlo about you. And if you run for office, and I'm guessing a year field to you're probably going to hear just stuff made. It's yeah. It's it's not fun. But you gotta you gotta be able to take it that's part of it. And and and I've learned that, you know, I get taxman this person say this about you. And you know, when the first time, I ran it just crush me. I'm like, really like, you know, you see yourself as a nice guy. And then all of a sudden overnight, you're villain to some people. And I've been called all kinds of names. But, you know, a learn to roll with the punches and so get a good team around. You executed. You stay on you stay on that plan. And then you let those good people do their job. You know, when I look at people like, Tim, swill Josie all types of people, man, we fuss and fight all the time. But then we work it out. And then we move forward. And then last you got to look at the temperature of the room..

"We I would confide in him too with with just about anything. Yeah. A lot of people are reminded me of those conversations. And and and so, yeah, it it is a, you know, it is a blessing. It is. I I am honored. And I take this very seriously. And and I think there's some things that we can do good again. I think the job of the county prosecutors to help people, but also Pete people safe and those aren't mutually exclusive. Yeah. I I think back to fifteen years ago. So you're just two years or move from law school at this point. Why were you thinking if it is indeed right around that time when you were thinking, why did you identified that is something that you want to aspire to it's such a young age? You know, I it wasn't so much that I actually thought it would happen at that time is just was one of those things. Like, man, if I had my choice of jobs, I think that's where I go at that time politics was not on my radar. And so. But just working as a, you know, as a public defender, representing the most vulnerable the poorest people in our communities. So I'm seeing it from the lowest levels. You know, relative, anecdotally speaking, and and I just thought that there was an opportunity to really make an impact in and you can see I can see early on that you know, as any young attorney. You wanna make a difference? And you think eight one day I could be a judge, and then I can really make a difference and and several years ago. I got that that I that honored that opportunity and once I got that opportunity, and it didn't take me long to realize. Now, the real impact is from the prosecutor's office as the judge ninety plus percent of the cases by the time. They reach me, they're already resolved. But the prosecutor in addition to working out plea deals decides who gets charged or who doesn't get charged or you know, as a municipal court prosecutor now, I can say, hey, you got this ticket or you got you had this whatever. Or a violation. If you do X, then I won't charge. You you go to driving school. We'll we'll dismiss you find you have that ability to help people. And so now as the county prosecutor, I'm looking at that from a bigger scale, there's more that we can do and I'm a big advocate for implementing and further expanding diversion programs like drug treatment programs and mental health programs for nonviolent offenders. And so again, I want to be clear so people don't misconstrue once you commit violent offenses..

"To five seven nine seven well the election in five states oval there. Was in the Special election in Ohio A. Very very close election it appears that the candidate supported by President Trump wins by less than two hundred votes against the Republican in that primary that was backed by Senator Bob Dole and the established Well I'm sorry In Ohio that the the candidate backed by. The other established people dole supported established. Candidate, in Kansas We also see that there then. Victories around the country but in primaries But the one that stands. Out to me Is Wesley bell city council person in Ferguson, Missouri where Michael Brown was killed by police And many of us were. Involved in next trouble in fact I did the. Eulogy at his funeral and initial rallies Dan have been working with his father and mother since then as they've continued as part of the movement against police brutality was on this show about three weeks ago The documentary Wesley bell defeated the prosecutor that would not indict. The police in Ferguson and Wesley bell will now be the city well he will run, and pro likely went to be the prosecutor for. Saint Louis, county that's something that was unexpected but I think was. A good thing and it goes to show you. What I have been saying we have got to vote and punish people at the polls that don't do their job Is not punishing them that they. Don't do what we want don't follow the law how you going to have a prosecutor That does not follow the law Have, no problem prosecuting in our. Community but people violated now community many don't move forward And this sends a real message to prosecutors that people will vote you. Out so why you get all, these pressures from various sources? And various people supporting people the question is going to be can they re, elect you and I think. The answer is no If, we come out and vote so let's. Talk about the election returns as well as other issues I really also, want us to talk about we went off yesterday was some discussion around the. Issue of violence one to another in lot of us have been really really watching. Was going on in Chicago I, had Reverend IRA Acharya on? The show he and others in Chicago Hardiman and others. Had a March last week And I think that we really cannot Continue to talk about. This for years we've marched on both we've dealt with both, crimes that we commit to each other As well as crimes committed, against us so let's talk about that they talk about black on black I don't like the label black. On black crime but. It is crime we're doing to each other and with out Minimizing the need. For services and the need. For a lot of things to. Change in the community I do not at any, point want to suggest that anything justifies killing or shooting each other Yes we need more social services and yes. I think it stems the tide and. The desperation that, many young people in and then enticed into doing other things but again, we must challenge them to be stronger and deal more self love so let's talk about that as well and of course the congressman Collins and upstate New. York arrested this morning on insider. Trading he gave his son info and then covered it up On some insider trading I think Netting a seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars as we continue to watch the for trial where his. Assistant partner now testifying against him all. Of this Brings in the whole broader world of the investigation of. President Donald Trump And I think it. Is it is extremely important that we understand that it is our community That has to be prepared either way Wherever the mullahs investigations go. To vote and vote with a passion that's why the Wesley bell victory was important Let me say about wherever announcements you.
