Where Does Biden Stand on Policing in Communities of Color?
"The epidemic of black men being killed by police. But he's also presented himself as an ally of the law enforcement community. NPR's Juana Summers takes a look at the line. The president is walking when Joe Biden offered his condolences to George Boyd's loved ones in a video played at Floyd's funeral last year. Supposed to question Why do so many black people in America wake up knowing they could lose their lives? Now is the time for racial justice. That's the answer. We must give to our Children when they ask why. Because when there is justice for George Floy, we will truly be on our way to racial justice in America. Aside from the policing overhaul bill that carries George Floyd's name that is stalled in Congress. Biden does not have a clear agenda to deliver on his promise of making real change and policing and communities of color. Congresswoman Brenda

In A Los Angeles Park, Worrying Signs Of Rising Homelessness
"Continues to pummel the nation's economy, There are troubling signs that more people are slipping into homelessness. NPR's Adrian Florido visited Park in Los Angeles, where this is becoming more visible every day. Echo Park is one of Ella's iconic public spaces. It has a big lake lined by palm trees and a postcard view of the downtown skyline. It's always had a small homeless community. But in the last few months, people sleeping in tents have filled half of the park's 16 acres. Jesse Brandy moved in four months ago after losing his job programming office phone systems. Everything's closed. Businesses aren't putting any effort into you know, telephone lines in programming those systems out of work. He couldn't afford the rent. So that left me with friends going through, you know, house the house and then became a burden. So So he came to the park and pitched a tent. There are people have been here before hand, but a lot of these people right here. This was because of the pandemic. Federal, state and local addiction moratoriums are supposed to be keeping people in their homes, even if they can't pay the rent during the pandemic. It says that who moved into Echo Park over the summer, said a lot of people like him have left their apartments anyway. Rather than fall behind on rent. I didn't want that hanging over me. Even though there was a moratorium on Enter and I didn't technically has to pay it. I'm not making money. So how? While my loading up on death, he said in addiction over back rent would hurt him for years. He recently found a temporary job working the reception desk it a tax preparation firm. Colleagues don't know He lives in the park. Which is why he asked me not to use his last name. Like I met people out here. They had good jobs. And then could the foreground. This pandemic is just, you know, I really hit him hard. There's even like families with kids here, you know, because of the pandemic groups that fan out to do. Homeless counts have put that off for now, making it hard to know how many people the pandemic has already driven to the streets. Just because there's no academic data does not discount our own eyes. Pete White directs the Lay Community Action Network, an anti poverty organization. Us traveling in communities where there were no house with people and there are now informal settlements everywhere. There is no dept that their arm or people on the streets Ella in California have had a homeless crises for years. And while officials are using pandemic relief money to get people inside White fears. What he's saying is just the beginning here and nationally. This crisis will on Lee get worse unless we figure out how to do all we can to keep people who are barely hanging on. In their homes. And for folks who are house list, figuring out cheaper and faster and innovative ways to get people inside. Brenda Modano moved into Echo Park before Christmas and says the community has formed quickly here with weekly meetings and all We get together. We discussed that girls, if anything wrong or what? What's going on? You know how many kids you could have? She was standing with stubble. What soy who was manning a table accepting donations for the parks residents. Shoes, toilet paper soap clothing. Ah, feel crappy about because by doing that I know that I'm helping some other people and that made me happy. So I moved into the park seven months ago, almost for the first time in his life, he said. 35 years after moving here from what they might let you pulled the business card out of his tent who started with so general handyman? I do I do. Drive one painting, plumbing, hardwood floor. That's what I do.

Adobe's Top 5 Creative Trends for 2021 - with Brenda Milis
"Hey welcome back to another episode of podcast. I'm your host frederik. Van johnson today on the show. I am honored and excited to have my friend. Brinda mills here from adobe. Brinda is the principle of visual trends. Adobe she's gonna be talking about what that means and also we're just gonna diving really deep on just what the zeitgeist of creativity looks like and how those kind of changes and trends might influence your work whether it be photography designed video etc brinda. Welcome to the show. are you doing. hi i'm great. Thanks for having me. I always love talking about trends especially with creative's and there's a ton of trends. I'm excited talk about this stuff. Because it's when you when you and i talk. It's almost like once a year. You and i talk great in your your team. Well you say. What is your team do i. What is a what is the the principle of visual trends at adobe with well my my role basically is to help both creatives in other people who want to contribute to stock and make money from the pictures they make At as well as clients because the clients. I work with our creative professional's understand the kinds of imagery that is interesting to viewers consumers the kind of images that people look at get their attention really retains viewer interest and engagement but also not to just say. Hey this is what's hot. You know not just to do that to really give context cultural social context to each of these trends so that really makes sense to greater so they really understand not just what is sound but why is it so. I'm because that really adds a lot of kind of power to the producer of the visuals yet. I'm hearing when you. I'm sorry we when you look at this from a from a commercial. Because i just kind of two sides of a coin there's a commercial side where you know. I'm a creative. And i'm creating work that i want to want it to be relevant in cultural culturally significant to right now and what's happening on the planet right now and then on the non commercial is called the advanced amateur consumer side of it. Those creatives also create work that resonates with their audiences. Does this serve both of those masters absolutely absolutely you know. I think that we're all pretty aware have been for some time that we're living in a world that changes very quickly and of course you know a twenty four seven you know content streaming That not only shifts the creative landscape more more quickly than ever been also shifts viewer engagement with content more quickly than ever. So i think there are a lot of people out there who are creatives. Who would just like to understand. Will what's trending. That's the credit trends and y you know. And how does it relate to the work. I'm doing or the work. I'd like to develop so one of the things to think about as we talk about creative trends. Focus on visual trends in this conversation One of the things that i want people to think about is that there's never idea that all of the trans would be relevant to any one producer anyone photographer videography or anyone company. Even it's just that maybe one maybe two of the trans will really resonate in aligned with your own style with your own voice your own creative voice and that's really what we want to help. Contributors help artists plug into like. Oh i see how this use of color or this topic. Really aligns with the work. I love a work. Maybe a project. I've been thinking about doing and now i can. Actually it. Actually kind of is almost a strategic tool. Not just for making money. It's really plan your next shoot. Yeah the when when someone looks at these trends and we're going to dive into the report shortly when someone looks at these trends should they say it's a newer photographer. That wants to make sure that their body of work their their book and you know their work is relevant so when they presented somebody the reaction will be oh. This person is plugged in. What's going on is this. This is a resource. Those folks can look to you as well right absolutely absolutely. Yeah absolutely get really is is for creative about levels. And that's what you'll see as soon as we died in you'll see visual trends in particular. Are i think they resonate with virtually every audience. These trends have mainstream appeal so a lot of work. I do really on a daily basis. I work with a global forecasting company come. Wgn everywhere in media social platform. So i'm looking at so many reports in so much. Somebody projects. But i won't. I won't develop something as visual turned until it really feels relevant to mainstream audiences. Because again i'm here to help creative all types but also to help commercial artists sell their work so what these visual trends really kind of present is something that may have started off as a very meaty artistic practice. Maybe three years ago. But that i've been studying where my colleagues have been studying studying the development watching its scale until we see all sorts of data we even have proprietary adobe stock search data to confirm our findings Around you know search searches that align with each of the trend to watch those things scaling. So it's a lot of qualitative and quantitative data and as you'll see when they go into. These do have broad appeal and can be practiced in many ways. I think that's might be one of the things that's interesting about our conversation today. These are super super specific techniques. If we were talking about motion transfer today. There might be a little more technical editing aspect but visual trans can be approached in so many ways. And that's why. I think it's an exciting conversation for this audience
CPS, CTU Avoid Teacher Lockout, Remote Learning to Continue During ‘Cooling Off' Period
"Chicago. Public schools is in session tomorrow. A lockout and strike have been averted but for how long amanda finicky joins us now with more. Amanda does yes within the past hour or so we got word from both. cps and the chicago teachers union that remote learning will continue at least for tomorrow and wednesday. Today was to have been the first day back in the classroom for kindergarten. Through eighth graders who wanted to return to physical school instead. It was another day of virtual learning as negotiations progress. This is a sort of last minute. Maneuvering that is frustrating for whiplash parents like ryan griffin. It's a fiasco for parents for twenty four hundred students. I can't underestimate how disruptive that is to two families lives especially. you're balancing sharing for other family members. I did speak with griffin earlier this afternoon before the latest news. Which is this. Cps today says that talks led to an important milestone and as such it will not go forward with locking out teachers of their virtual classrooms for refusing to show up in person. Tomorrow or wednesday. And if they're not locked out of the classroom then the union says teachers are not going to strike meaning that they will again show up tomorrow to teach virtually as they as most at least have been. Since last march both sides are signaling optimism that this may be the end of the back and forth we have secured agreement on one other open issue and made substantial progress on a framework that we hope will address the remaining issues. We are calling for a forty eight hour cooling off period that will hopefully lead to a final resolution on all open issues as a result of the progress. We have made and as a gesture of good phase four now. Teachers will retain access to their google suite. That's a statement from both mayor. Lori lightfoot and cps chief janice jackson the chicago teachers union meanwhile calling it heartening that the lightfoot administration will continue bargaining saying that its members. Don't want to strike in this. I know in just a bit. You're going to be speaking with c. You leadership it is not by the way just chicago. That has their eyes on this. Reporters pressed the white house press secretary about chicago central strike this afternoon. She said that. President joe biden respects mayor lightfoot and also teachers noting that first lady jill biden is one. He chose the mayor and the unions to work this out. They're both prioritizing the right things which is ensuring the health and safety of the kids and teachers and working to make sure that children in chicago are getting the education they deserve so he is hopeful. We are hopeful they can reach common ground as soon as possible. Mayor lightfoot meanwhile on national cable news this morning saying she was pushing to seal the last few remaining but tough issues. We're pushing as hard as we can to seal these last few remaining but tough issues. It's not about we don't want to be safe. It's absolutely not about we. Don't respect the rights of organized labor. Chicago's a labor town but this is about balancing a lot of different issues but mostly also about putting our kids i. She says if both sides do that they will reach a in. No time but parents that i talked to stay throughout all of this. They're feeling ignored. Mom of three courtney. Ritsma says she has gone out of her way to learn what schools are doing to make classrooms safe while covid remains a threat participating in all of the cps acts. Ask the experts series that they had I was attending the school town halls. And every time i went it was like left me frustrated because i wasn't getting answers at like most parents at the events. We weren't getting answers to to most of our concerns to our most basic questions. Why she and a group of grass roots parents planned a sick out her kids were purposely absent from their virtual classrooms today stem. Her daughter wrote letters to the principal and learned about boycotting in civil action with the scout. We are trying to kind of doing action that hits the school where it counts. And if you know anything about cps you know that attendance is something they track like crazy and so this is an easy way for us to get a clear representation of one of weakness. And here's how many cps however could not share attendance numbers quickly so it is hard to say how big a success the sickout was now three weeks ago. Another group of parents formed another grassroots group. This is the chicago parents. Collective father of three ryan griffin says. He understands why. Cps wasn't ready to go back to school in august but he says now there's been six months to plan for it but now that we've prepared why not now for at least those that are finding rebel or is not working and that's a big population of students more than double in size of the next largest school district in illinois hunter. We ignore those parents choice for that option griffin says he wants teachers and the district's to at least take some baby steps to get a path so that these students can eventually be in school five days a week safely. Is that post vaccinations. That would be great. We need optimism and we need our leaders to agree on something instead of tuning into press conferences and twitter. The day before. We're supposed to go back to school. He says leaders from side should be setting an example for children. He says parents everyone went through strife back in the twenty nineteen strike and he says they shouldn't have to go through it again during a pandemic now chicago is in the clear at least four two days but there is still no complete deal in in a statement issued the parents. Yes says that while today was he bake agreements several outstanding issues that had been outstanding. Since the summer. They must continue to make what they called meaningful progress because time is running out. Now brenda back to you. Amanda thank you and of course as we just heard the impasse over reopening chicago. Public schools has yet to be broken but the two sides say they have made

When i was taught in textbooks that christopher columbus was here a hero. I was asleep when i was in new jersey watching news from philly being taught about all this black on black crime and being presented it in a way. That's all their choice. They're choosing to live this lifestyle and they deserve to be imprisoned. Like i was asleep when i believe that was true. I was asleep when i believed that. The police weren't actually built with the intention of retrieving slaves. That have run away. It is so naive and ignorant for us to think that all these systems that were bill and planted with rotted seeds are actually springing into trees. That are perfectly healthy. We have to pull out these roots and be like no. We're doing something about this. I have a mazing episode with this woman named joe lumine and we talked about white supremacy on the church in decolonizing our faith and she talks about this song. She was like you know. I was in local church and we were singing. I was once a slave to sin. And now i'm free. And she was like but that was an actual slave song from you know these black people that had written this song sung it in their oppression. And i felt so betrayed by that i was like i was asleep as a white girl. Thirteen years old and my white church singing. I was a slave. And now. I'm free thinking i'm talking about sin without ever being taught that song was given to us by black slaves. We never honored tradition and we have not told are true. History like so many christians again. We'll talk about if you tear down our statues than you're robbing us of history. Unlike excuse me the moment that someone printed. Christopher columbus is a hero in my elementary school textbook. That was the moment someone raised history. We don't need statues we need to know are true roots of christianity and of our society. So we can pull that out implant seeds that are actually going to spring forth life which is a biblical principle right. I i really respect you so much for being able to very humbly talk about these topics and address. Sort of what the before and after for you the way that you are moving through you know all of the years of your past of sort of accepting these things and being you know just allowing it to sort of move through you and then coming back and pulling up the roots of your own history right and it's like microcosm macrocosm you doing. This is proof that it can be done and we could be done very gracefully and it could be done very humbly and very honestly but it's obviously very destabilizing in very scary. So it's you know. I think that it's it's definitely a really beautiful thing that you are displaying. Exhibiting this for us so that everybody whether or not they were raised in any sort of ideology at all can do this and go through this process himself because we all need to be doing it A man and it has nothing to do with aiding your white skin or crawling across the floor begging for repentance for things you didn't do it's about doing the hard work of fighting for justice in real time and just writing honest about who we are and where we've come from. Yes you have a book. Can we talk about it. Yeah it's a such a beautiful full circle thing. Because i began writing this book. Eight years ago or something like that and i actually began god his because i was trying to find a publisher and they kept saying we love this material. But there's no audience for it and this was pre trump. this was pre my channel. So like i think people really didn't know how pervasive and fascinating the whole christian dirty culture. Experience is so this story is very sex drugs rock and roll and jesus it talks about me in a ten year span of like moving to la as this perfect virginal christian and then getting a divorce falling into this wild tram page and sort of like swinging back around and realizing that. I'd maintains my faith and my love. For jesus the entire time and woven throughout this story. I really pick apart all of these concepts chapter on drugs sex abortion like all of the really complicated things and just through my story teaching people house actually view these concepts and ideas from a different lens and questioned the way we've been taught about these things so it's available for presale. It comes out in april. And i'm honored if anyone goes picks up copy because they really do believe it's informative for anyone outside of the circle especially if you love someone that has either come out of religion or is still part of it and then if you have like been affected by it the most distant way i really hope that it will be healing and transformative especially in becoming a sex positive affirming science believing person in this world no matter what your faith is. Yes i think that every. I know that brenda has been working on this. Pre got his gray and it's so cool to when saw that you were finally releasing it. I was so excited. Because i also know that you are an extraordinary storyteller..
"brenda" Discussed on Stars Like Us: Astrology with Aliza Kelly
"Hey everyone. I am elise academy the host of stars like us and i am so thrilled to introduce you to a very dear friend of mine. You may know her as the author of on her knees. The youtuber god is grey. Also podcast or just in general all social media clean She is a gemini sun with a taurus moon and virgo rising. We love that mercurial energies. This is my dear friend brenda davies. It is so nice to connect with you. I'm so happy to be here. I adore you. I miss you. I adore you and miss you too. I'm so proud of you am so proud of how what you have created and the messaging of god is gray and how you have just really found your voice. I feel like in the platform and the truth is for all of our listeners. Is that this is actually our second approach or a second time approaching recording for stars like us. We did a very long very beautiful organic. Oh think it would have been like a two hour episode. What feels like a million years ago. I guess it was two years ago and yeah it was. It was before stars like us came out so it was kind of trying to still figure out like what the content was going to be. What the format was gonna be. And i was also figuring out how technology works and it is. Two hours of inaudible recordings is. What is what happened. Show you our hang says thinking and talking to people and we're talking to no one talking to know on it all super scratchy and just like completely unsalvageable tracks where we got. Were super sloppy with our mics. We were like holding them begging him around our faces acting like we were in a porn justice behavior that i very successfully recorded audio that same day and i have a beautiful episode with you. That still stands on the gods great. Podcasts might have gotten a lot of great feedback about that as well. Yeah so really interesting. yeah it is. It is like the lost footage of our first conversation But yes i mean the the episode that we have on your podcast very much still upholds and Is i definitely encourage everyone to check out and listen to but two years later since our original recording a lot has changed. You are a mom now and you weren't then to a salutary babe and you have an incredible. I mean you've amassed an amazing following and with good reason because you know. A lot of people are trying to figure out how to reconcile dealing with their religious upbringings dealing with their current spirituality dealing with their families and navigating that i have heard from a lot of different people has been really challenging and a lot of people have been talking about your work and how meaningful it is. And i'm just so i'm like such a proud mom. I feel so grateful to have known you prior to this and then have watched you develop this. It's i like to say tank. There are no coincidences. It's totally tank that you started this before. Twenty twenty because building platform. Prior to this time i think was just obviously an amazing amazing thing to kick off because so many people against the backdrop of twenty twenty are really trying to figure out these very complicated topics so i love for our listeners to get to know you more got his gray came to be an yeah. What a day in the life of brenda davies. Looks like what does it feel like to be a german ice on. What does it feel like. Yeah just for anyone that doesn't know I described my platform by saying i may sex positive. Lgbtq plus affirming science believing christian so like today for example. I'm putting out in episode called really pro-life about capital punishment. Because i see so much distance in the things that christians evangelical baptist etcetera will put out into the world versus their behavior. And there's been this mass exodus away from church and it's really not a surprise. Because i think as more and more people come into moments of twenty twenty these moments of clarity and the courageousness that's been emboldened and people to actually seek truth for themselves. They're realizing that. You know a lot of these things that we were raised in. Not only don't make sense when he break them apart but they're actually antithetical to christ's message. You know the whole trumpism thing. That happened in evangelical ism. I'm not gonna say political on this podcast. Because i don't want to chase anyone away but it was a companion. No no they're guy. If anyone is listening. I got a review. A one star reviews. Somebody took the time to actually do that. And it's like podcasts. Was great until the thing you said about trump. It was which fucking wise. How far did you get in the podcast. You must have clearly gotten like ten minutes in before. I started just to talk about how horrific this administration okay. Well there you go over. Your audience stands then but even then like i think confusing on both sides because some people that were ended up loving him. Whatever no matter where where you stood. I think it really showed twenty twenty vision the cracks in our faith practice and how it doesn't really align with who i believe were meant to be as people so i started really talking about what is called. Purity culture modesty culture breaking down a lot of the really harmful toxics theology. We were taught about our bodies are sexuality whether or not we're born with this concept of original sin and the propensity to always do the wrong thing and the quote perversity of being homosexual. All of these things i intuitively knew. Were antithetical to christ's message. I came to peace with affirming. Lgbtq people probably ten years ago which actually was a journey. Because i was raised in church at twelve years old. I went to church where they told me all my gay friends. We're gonna go to hell told me a god cries when a masturbate. So i you know breaking down. These concepts had been a journey of my own independence for like ten years and that includes going on what i call a tram page where i just completely let go of all sexual ethic and just did whatever i want. Our mutual busty. Emily meade is very familiar with my turn page phase. She was there for a lot of it as was the leeza as well. But i figure these things out on my own. And then. When i was like on youtube i started seeing other christian girls that were just perpetuating the same toxic messages. That hurt me so deeply. And i decided to pick up a camera and share with people this deconstruction. That's prodigal some journey. I went on for those ten years and it has included like so much research so much theological understanding. And that's been a beautiful journey because you can theologically intellectually and spiritually disprove toxic theology. Because at the end of the day. I really do believe that god is good and god is love apologies. If anyone is hearing my loud baby and his toys and cry at the end of the day i believe truth stands on its own and the truth is that god is love and we're supposed to live in that spirit of love so yeah. The god is great channel invites people to do that and then invites them to richt on the toxic theology and replace it with something that is truly authentic to you and i'm so proud to say the platform is incredibly diverse. I've got which is up in there. I've got atheist got christians. I got buddhists and muslims and it's been just really incredible to see it grow and to see all of these people unite and a lot of people like attack me be like because her audience is diverse because which is love her content than that means. She's like anti christ. But not that way at all. I think people are really fascinated to see religion and see broken apart in that way because it hurts a lot of us and i think one example that i give all the time is that britney spears was drug through the mud for maybe having sex with justin timberlake so to me that shows.

Because i believe that it was created by the women if we go back and look at the history that's uncovered. The women were the ones that were the most instrumental in. And so before. If you think about before we had physical computers computers were people's in fact. There's a book called when computers were human. That discusses this. And if you were to look at the history you would see pictures of women in rooms in rose sitting behind those big gawky calculators that they used to have decades go making the computing calculations and actually. The computers were built to do the things that these women were doing. And the interesting thing was that was thought to be clerical until all of a sudden the power of it was recognized by the men. And that's when the that's when that power shift occurred so at the at its core is wow this. This was something that as we know has become the thing that impacts absolutely everything about our lives.

"brenda" Discussed on Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls
"Go back and wrist. Hi Brenda can you introduce yourself? My name is Brenda Chapman and I'm a writer director I started out as a story artist animation. My First Film Was Little Mermaid you may remember that one. and. I was an animation all the way up through. Brave Pixar I. Love Free. Brenda, how did you know that you wanted to go up to tell stories through art I? Think I told stories ever since I was. Old enough to hold the Pencil, I used to do this game with my mother called the scribble game. Some people may have heard of it, but where she would make a little mark a little scribbled on a piece of paper and she told me to look at it and see what it was. So I would make something of it whether it was a dog or at Giraffe for a house or tree or flower whatever I would see something in it and and make it does I drew pictures growing up I always had a story to tell them. I always love story. was there a moment when you realize I can do this as a I knew I always wanted to do something with art and I thought it would always be drying I went to an animated film in high school. For once in my life, I stayed for the credits. And I realized that all these people worked on these animated films, I didn't realize that people could make a living working on these films and so when I saw the credits. Being it. Hit me I want to do that I can do that and so. After that moment I sort of did my research without the Internet. because we didn't have it back in those days and discovered how to write to Disney and ask them what I needed to do to get into animation and they sent me some pamphlets for Cal Arts California Institute of the arts and I worked really hard to get into that school I didn't get accepted the first time I tried. Worked really hard for another year and got him and. Was it hard I think the thing that was hard for me at the time was that I was very, very shy and. I loved story and when I had to do a story board or story ART I had to stand up in front of people and pitch that story and convince them that it was the story they wanted to tell it took me a long time to get over my shyness but I had a lot of really wonderful people who supported me and encouraged and managed to get past that. So. When you're coming up with story ideas, where do they come from like? How do you get started? So I I come up with an idea, and sometimes that idea is a character, a person or sometimes it's a it's an idea of what of of a situation that can happen and so I drug that. A little bit of it on on a piece of paper. and. Then then I start writing all around that drawing all these different words and phrases to help me build upon that one little idea. And then that grows into a story. I feel like that's something all of us can do. Revels you can do it too. At the end of the episode, go get a piece of paper draw something in the middle of anything. A person. And then are jotting down notes we'd love to see. have. You folks share with us on Instagram tag us at rebel. Okay, Brenda. If you go back and give yourself some advice when you were a kid what would you say? We tell myself. Not. To be so hard on myself, I was always very critical of. Less about my work than I was about myself, my body, a hair, my all of that and. I think. If I could go back and just say, Hey, you're beautiful and it's okay you are you. You don't have to look like everyone else just enjoy what life you have. I think would be. The advice. That we give myself. It's less about my career than is just about feeling good about myself. That's good advice. Okay. Finally. What makes you a rebel girl What makes me a rebel? Girl is my stubborn streak. I think when people tell me what to do that I think is wrong or isn't isn't the right thing to do I say something and my shy little girl self sort of drops away and I stand up for what I know is rate whether that's for a story or foam or something in society that's going on I do speak my mind and a don't let people shut me down. Thank you, Brenda..

He was the one that was supposed to fulfill this revelation from God. Dan turn the car towards Allen and brand does an pulled into the driveway once again. Dan stepped out of the car and knocked on the door. This time Brenda answered. He began by asking her where Allen was and she stated that he was at work. Dan Rea called that he was silently talking to God and wondering what to do next. After a few seconds, he pushed past Brenda and entered the duplex. Brenda must have known that whatever was going to happen was going to end badly. As her words to Dan work out. I knew you were going to do something that nobody could stop. Unquote. Ron. Eventually made his way into the duplex and saw what was going on. Dan Had Brenda pinned to the floor. She tried to reason with both of them sang shoe do anything they wanted and begged them not to hurt her baby Ron began punching brandon in the face trying to knock her out to subdue her all the while calling her a bitch, an Aligarh. She managed to get up and run into the kitchen where the sheer terror and blows to the face caused her to faint. Dan, asked Ron cut the cord from the vacuum. He then took that cord and at around Brendon's neck twice and tied it in a not. An with the knife that round had handed to him. He Slit Brendan's throat. While the struggle mayhem was going on nap and Kearns were waiting in the car. They were able to hear some of the commotion then it suddenly quieted down. They became nervous about being involved in this crime and contemplated leaving with the car. But after some reasoning decided against it. Dan Walk down the hall. He had never been to Brandon Allen's home before and claim the spirit led him into baby Erica's room. Dan Guests, the Eric must have thought he was her daddy. As they both had beards and their voices sounded similar. How dreadful is that that? If she did think this was her daddy. Dan Talk. Erica saying quote. I'm not sure what this is all about, but apparently it is God's will that you leave the world. Perhaps. We can talk about it later on quote. Dan held onto Erica's little head. And placed the knife on her neck. And slice it with enough force that it nearly decapitated.

Not just mine, but all of our greatest fears are coming right, back at us, that we have to humanize each other. We haven't learned from our mistakes, and we have repeated them. And we didn't realize that the aliens were actually us. And that something that I never imagined could be a weapon, a piece of paper could slice through a delicate complex vulnerable. Part of me.

"brenda" Discussed on Female Criminals
"Brenda told him, quote, oh, I've seen a shrink. I gave him three pages of notes, but that's all Peter Langman clinical psychologist and author of two books about school shootings said in a recent NPR segment on teens who commit mass killings, quote, whether or not they've been diagnosed or whether or not they're severely mentally ill. Something is going on that could be addressed through some kind of treatment. It's possible that if Noreen Harman's concerns had been heated and Brenda had been more closely examined by mental health professionals in December January tragedy might have been averted. At the Spencer household Brenda remained on the line with negotiator P E. Olson it was around one thirty pm by now, and he still hoped he could convince her to surrender during the call. Brenda told him she used drugs saying, quote, I use any dope. I can get my hands on today. I took some downers smoke some pot and drink some beer and whisky. This statement was later disproved law enforcement found no drugs or alcohol in her system when they administered a drug test, then as she had done with her classmates at school Brenda began to brag to Olson she said, quote, I like to fight whenever I fight. I fight dirty. I had to fight a friend over a dope deal. He'd ripped me off. I had to split his head wide open. She also boasted that she'd stolen amunition from different stores as well as from her father. She said, quote, I totally ripped him off. He never even knew. Of course, he's never home to find out anything anyway, however beyond stealing ammunition from her father's van the night before the shooting the rest of her statements were unproven and probably brenda's way of trying to feel more empowered author and professor of criminology Scott Bon said in an interview that mass shooters generally don't get enjoyment from the one time killing spree itself. He said mass shooters are often quote people who feel powerless in their own lives. And they're basically saying f you to the world take this. I'm going to take as many of you out as possible, and you will remember my name Brenda had likely been feeling powerless for a long time. Abused by her father, so depressed that she'd been seen a suicidal and yet not taken seriously by the psychiatrist Brenda empowered herself in a very tragic violent way. Coming up. Brenda faces the consequences for her actions. Now back to the story. After firing three hundred fifty bullets in the direction of Grover Cleveland elementary school sixteen year old Brenda Spencer remained locked inside of her house by now it was after two pm several hours after the shooting had ceased on the phone lead negotiator P E Olsen. Once again suggested that Brenda surrender. She told him she'd think about it hoping he might have finally worn her down Olsen told Brenda. He was going to hang up and call back in twenty minutes to get her decision. But unfortunately, when he called back Brenda still refused to surrender. In fact, Brenda told Olson she wanted to stay in the house longer and do some more shooting. Schick splaine that she'd learned an important fact on one of her favourite TV shows swat she said, quote, if I should at the police, they'll shoot back not understanding why she would want the police. To shoot at her Olsen told Brenda. It wasn't a good idea. He said if she shot at the police, it would end tragically, Brenda became increasingly agitated as they spoke and Olsen was afraid. She really would start shooting again in a letter published in letters from prison Brenda explained that on the day of the shooting. She'd wanted to die. She claims she attempted suicide before January nineteen seventy nine and failed. Though, there isn't concrete evidence to verify this still Brenda went on to write that she thought the shooting out the window toward the school would cause the police to arrive and continuing to shoot with police outside would result in the police shooting her from what she'd seen on television. She knew they never missed. This tactic is often referred to as suicide by cop. P E Olsen changed tactics. Trying to keep her from resuming her fire. He told Brenda that if she started shooting he couldn't control the swat officers. They might launch tear gas into the house, which would hurt brenda's pets a rat a snake and a dog at this Brenda seemed to grow less agitated she asked if what she had done was in the news. And if she was on television Olson replied, it was probably the case as they were quite a few news vans in the area. Brenda told him if she was arrested. She wanted to be sure she was taken away in handcuffs, then after almost three hours of negotiations. Brenda finally agreed to give up her weapons. She didn't reveal what made her surrender. She could have simply been exhausted. She could have felt she'd gotten the attention. She had sought or she could have just realized she had no other alternatives before coming out of the house. Brenda unload. Loaded her rifle and pellet gun as instructed and then walked out the front door. She carefully placed the weapons on the driveway turned around went back into the house and got back on the phone with Olsen for more instructions. Brenda exited the house again at three oh nine PM and to swat officers apprehended her she didn't resist. On January thirtieth the day after the shooting. Brenda was arraigned because of the seriousness of her crimes. The district attorney's office urged the court to try her as an adult. However for now Brenda was charged in juvenile court with two counts of murder and ten other criminal charges. If convicted she would receive a maximum sentence of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. The media had a field day with the case and new stories were everywhere. Brenda's quotes about not liking Mondays. And watching the shot children's squirm were replayed on every station. Both Wally dots homes were pelted with rocks and eggs, they received hate mail and death threats Brenda. I lawyer Robert Butler asked to be relieved from her case because he also received death threats. Dr Thomas Rogers, a psychiatrist who examined Brenda for her pre-trial. Evaluation concluded she was a young misfit who was deeply troubled by her parents divorce and living a bleak existence in her father's home. Other mental health professionals who examined Brenda confirmed her fragile mental state saying she showed characteristics of schizoid personality. They felt she should be treated in a mental health facility. Not incarcerated in prison. According to the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders, schizoid personality disorder manifests itself by early adulthood, through social and emotional detachments that prevent people from having close relationships people with it are able to function in everyday life, but will not develop meaningful relationships with others there, typically loners and may be prone to excessive daydreaming as well. As forming attachments to animals Brenda was thought of as weird by her classmates in school and had very few friends. She usually preferred. Solitary activities like photography target shooting and caring for her many pets. She made up stories about taking drugs and getting into fights that most likely didn't actually occur causes for schizoid personality disorder aren't fully known. But a prior brain injury may have caused Brenda to develop symptoms in thirty years. Study psychologist, Dr to Weera Copenhagen found that several psychiatric patients who had experienced traumatic brain injury had lesions in the frontal lobe area, these lesions possibly caused social interactional and attachment problems loneliness and subsequent schizoid development. When Brenda was fourteen. She was in a bicycle accident striking her head on a telephone pole it caused her to blackout and she felt woozy for at least a day afterward. She wasn't evaluated for injury at the time. But after she was arrested doctors performed brain scans. They discovered. Brenda had damaged to her frontal lobe, in addition to frontal, lobe, lesions most mental health professionals theorized that leak childhoods where warmth and emotion were absent might also contribute to the development of schizoid personality disorder after brenda's parents, divorced. She said she felt abandoned by her mother and was abused by her father after her previous attorney resigned. Brenda's case the court appointed attorney Mike McGlynn to defend her. He argued that because of brenda's young age and psychological problems. She lacked the criminal sophistication to be tried as an adult McGlynn hoped. She could receive psychological help and rehabilitation in a youth facility until she was twenty three at which point her case would be reassessed and further action taken McGlynn was also afraid Brenda would be assaulted and harmed in an adult prison. The prosecution, however was pushing for the. The maximum sentence and Brenda didn't appear to be cooperating with her own defense in fact throughout the weeks after her arrest Brenda shut down and was unemotional and uncommunicative with everyone including the psychiatrists who examined her. Perhaps because Brenda wasn't talking lawyers and psychiatrists
"brenda" Discussed on That's What She Said with Sarah Spain
"So it's part of the culture, it's a polar of of their program. So I love the idea that if you know, that's the culture, you're a predator. You're not gonna go to Stanford. That's just commonsense. Right. Predators hunt where there allows away with it. So if you know, there's a culture of accountability, you're not going there. You're gonna go to a different school where you think you can get away with it. Right. That's what the experts say. They do find places where they know people are likely to protect the institution over the morality of the people. Absolutely, absolutely. That's been proven a million times over that predators onto where they can get away with it. So and and not only that. But then, you know, the team, you know, they're wearing set the expectation t shirts they have risk being the Stanford. They're going to take back the night. So getting involved it's becoming a thing that spreading the culture is spreading across the campus now, and so that's the other thing. Right. If you're a predator, and you go to a party on call on the college campus, but there's a couple of guys from the football team there. Right. You're probably not gonna hundred that party either you're gonna leave because you know, that those guys are the ones that have said, I'm in a sense. I see something I'm gonna say something something people on my campus. Are this is not happening on my campus had that coaching? How those people bring especially put both players it changes things and predators door their places. And because of that people are safe. Yeah. Well, it's it's such important work that you're doing we could talk forever. But we're out of time. I really I was inspired by you connecting with coach Riley and changing his perspective and being able to forgive an and an involve him in the solution.

"Like a widow by slapped my chest as hot as I can to get me in state, but it works every single Tom note. Tony does this too. I think he was a power move is at right, Brenda. Yeah. I think that's what he calls it. But like, you slapping, your chest to imagine if you were going into a meeting or you're going to get new clients or you were going to do something. And you did that that's your that's your anchor. It literally anchors those feelings emotions to you. What's interesting before we go on this interview in this podcast? I did the same thing. But mainstay so makes complete sense. This is amazing such good stuff. Wow. Well, that's really cool because some people have anchors that are music. I mean, I'm very drawn to music. You're not always in a place where you can just crank the music or crank your power song. So sometimes it's just a matter of getting up where you are. And just dancing it out man, like dance shit out of. It's. Or pistol very lonely. If you Don out right true and people like that's just weird. I'm like well do at once tell me how you feel. Yeah. But I think most people kind of want to be stuck in that self pity's. Don't want to be grateful. I don't wanna dance it out. Like, a rob a beat this miserable and unhappy what most people do right? Yeah. Hundred percent 'cause I mean being miserable and unhappy takes less effort. Yes state. The other thing is like most people, and I'm sure you guys run into this. You ask somebody like what they want out of life, and they go, I don't know. Well, how you can get there. I like delay compare this to like GPS, right? Yes. Has three components your current location in your destination and the path to get there. If you don't know where you are currently located how does your GPS work. It doesn't it becomes useless. So stop focusing on the past stop worrying about the future and be present. Because it's your present moment that creates serum as ING future. All areas of life, not just money and success like every area of your life, yet that makes sense what you think anxiety so prevalent in this day and age because so many people that we speak to experience it myself. I'll hold my hands up and be honest and transparent. Now, I've had a lot of anxiety in my life. But why do you think anxieties is so prevalent in society Brenda because we're constantly focused on the future? When I was going through my life changes like my divorce. I was so anxious which is why I turned to the booze because it helped shut my brain off because I was constantly emigrant have enough money is gonna work out. Emma, going to be single for the rest of my life. Like Imigran be low than him. Seventy we focus on the future. Which is why? Anxiety, depression, tend to come from futures thoughts. Right. But I gotta let go of that. And just not don't go there. Yes. Yet that makes complete sense. And it kinda makes sense to if somebody is really serious about transforming unday gets up. Will you will you say enough is enough that probably it will be a good idea to seek out. Someone like Brenda Jones stood. A help because you've been number one. But also you the proven track record. That's why as I mentioned already jasmine in Iowa can with you right now. And we would just can before we dumped on this putt costs. How brenda's given us a kind of meditation visitation Sadie that we listened to before bed. We only been doing it for a couple of weeks already. I'm not just saying it because you're you're live on this puck off right now, Brenda I feel a huge shift right now just in my mindset, and when I wake up first thing in the morning, so I know that this stuff absolutely works. And I know that the subconscious mind is wide open fussing in the morning and loss thing at night. And that's why you told us to this. Tha that audio before we go to sleep. And isn't it, isn't it? Correct. That your subconscious mind is still out putting while you're in at sleep. Oh, absolutely. So when people are like so the programs. I create are designed to help people sleep..
