"george floyd" Discussed on Post Reports
"Every time, he started to take a step toward a life he wanted. Something would happen that. Withdraw him back. And he had to try and find a sense of fortitude to continue going. For example, he begins to dream about becoming a truck driver his brother's a truck driver. It's a very hoffler job in Texas. And he thinks it could allow him to get some financial freedom to help improve his life, but also improves the life of his family back home. So he tries to take the tests for the permit. Then, he can't get the permit at first because he owes fees back in Texas that prohibit him from getting a license. Then, he can't complete all the training to get the full commercial driver's license because he has to work. And he can't find a regular nine to five job that would allow him to work and then go to get this trucking license. Because of his arrest record and his friends say the only jobs that would give George. Lloyd. A chance are the jobs that looked at his big intimidating stature and said, yes, that's the type of person I want a big black man. Basically being a bouncer yes. So he found jobs as a bodyguard found job lifting heavy things. He found jobs intimidating people and kicking them out of nightclubs, but he couldn't find a steady nine to five job, and because those jobs worked at night, he was really tired in the day which precluded his ability to be able to get that CDL. Now the other thing. I had to do with his own financial stability. He had some kids back home and he owe child support and so even when he got these checks, they would be pretty paltry and so he's spinning his wheels a lot to try and get his life together to get some sort of sense of stability. But there are all these challenges that from his past that he can't fully move past. So. About a half year after Biggie. Dies George Floyd gets a phone call. And he hears his mother lasagna's Sec- Floyd has also died. and. He felt more related and alone than he had ever felt before. And then there was also this economic toll. that. George. Floyd. Even though he lived in Minneapolis he still kind of prided himself on being the man of that house in Houston. He was the oldest boy. And he was known to send money includes back home and so George Floyd felt this real scramble to be able to get his finances together. So he could not only build up his life but provide some stability to the people back home who now had to take care and. Play a bigger role in raising these grandchildren that Sissy Floyd was raising. Now, his friends talk about. That after his mother died, they saw another change in George. Floyd? His new roommates talk about him just being in his room for hours and hours. Instead of being downstairs on his plush couch watching ESPN on the big screen. And sometimes, they'd hear him reciting these Bible verses to himself. And sometimes, they just heard him cry. And his roommates would have to knock on the door and say George gotta come out you gotta come eat and so after George leads mom dies life doesn't get. Easier for him he's consumed it's trying to get the CDL. His Co workers at the nightclub, they talk about him being less reliable coming to work on time became less frequent. There is an incident or he was sleeping at the nightclub. The owner says he was still one of the best workers even though he started to slip a little bit and his roommates and his friends began to feel that he was showing serious signs of depression and they tried helping him with it but they also knew something else because a lot of them had gone through the program at turning point. And they also knew that these sorts of conditions. The continual specter of death. The feelings of uncertainty, the economics instability. Those are prime conditions for person to begin to relapse or to increase their dependency on drugs, and so that's what happened. Well, some of them began to worry about it but when George Floyd died. They did find Fenton, Hill and methamphetamine in its system and the sad truth of that is that for the people who knew him although no one will say they knew George Floyd to have a drug issue. They weren't surprised to see those things in his system. because. The conditions of his life. Created a scenario in which a number of people. Black White criminal record or not would start to depend on opioids and so he fell into a crisis. Another crisis that was much larger than. And that's where George Floyd with at and his life when on Memorial Day. He went to cub foods and a cashier thought that they noticed a counterfeit twenty and called police.

The lawyers were defending the police involved in church flights killing. They say that floyd died because of a drug overdose and that they needed to subdue him because he was acting erratically. Floyd's attorneys and his friends and loved ones find that allegation ridiculous they say it didn't have much to do with his behavior. because. When George Floyd was confronted by the cops. He was respectful. He said Yes sir. No Sir. He asked them not to go into the police car because he was cost her phobic. But then there's also something that I think is really important and this is the part. That resonates with all of George Floyd's friends. And so many black pe-.

I mean you had abrasions over his face. He can't do that for eight minutes and expect anybody to live. It's not going to happen. So I know that my my sense as my instructor. That he works with police a lot because the training is inadequate inadequate. And we have lifelong education, right? We all want to always continue to challenge ourselves. Read more and I spent a lot of time researching the history of this country, and and the founding principles and our framers, and our founders, and you know explaining what is at stake when I say live, free or Die American the world on the brink, because that history rich with knowledge that we need to fundamentally understand. If, we are going to succeed as a country. If we're going or we're going to go down this pit, have another chapter that I built about socialism, and it's utter failure everywhere and anywhere it is. It is tried I thought you know when you do start doing deeper deeper dives, which is always hard to do when you know cranking out four hours airtime day, you know, I'm just like I'm reminded of things that I had forgotten and then I'm learning new things that. That wow, I didn't know that it happened specifically. I didn't know that it happens nuggets. That's what research is about and a great team of researchers, helping me with the book, and it's all there, and then we deal with what is at stake. What are the differences? What's play here? Okay? The new green deal versus free market capitalism. It's that profound you know getting rid of the life blood of the world's economy economies. That's oil and gas. That's a bad idea. All of these ideas, they have our job killing. You know we're GonNa have what guaranteed government everything I put lay out the numbers. How much that would cost and not only. Is it going to be like every other socialist experiment? It's all GonNa fail now, but back to the police now let me just explain some as what we were talking about today with my martial arts instructor and I did my training today did an hour and a half today. Outside. Training, so we're not doing as much contact as we usually do. Social distancing training. A lot of you know I do a lot more setups lot more pushups a lot more core, but then we're working specifically on some some situational defense tactics. And in the case of George Floyd. When he's handcuffed. Let's say he did resist which he did not that I can see. But it wouldn't matter. WHO's you had him under full control once you have the handcuffs on.

The reason we could never be who we wanted dream to be in. Is You kept your knee on out net? It's time for us to stand up in Georgia's name and say get showed me off our necks. We don't have a problem denouncing. Violence Mr Governor. We don't have a problem Mr Mann denouncing Luton, but it seems like some in the criminal justice system have a problem looking at a tate and knowing there's probable cause, and it takes a long time for you to go and do what you see that you need to do. Reality. Chief Ed really back. Ole Out. Or hundred value and He went back to day and he mentioned the mayor the mayor with air. Governor there. Amy Klobuchar their. Senator Amy Yeah. Lot of a lot of people. Are Getting. Jackson each man. Lou How to have no. And bring it home. Look giving getting. The four officers took some time. But I I want. I think what was happening here. which doesn't happen in our case. Please know that Oh I. Think was happening here. I think an even if they bought the charges when they bought the charges against the other three. Then up the charges. Against Him Derek because I was interviewing crump earlier today on showed I was taping, he said that third degree manslaughter. Third degree murder came. Get you. Third degree murder came. Get you. Up to twenty years in prison all. Five years probation. that's why they were fighting so hard to get to second degree murder, because no matter what happens in the second degree murder you when you get convicted. You gotTa go do time. And so that happened, and then the other officers were body and for about a abating. Aiding, and abetting abating, manning, aiding and abetting, aiding and abetting, because they ate it, and so he explained on the show I was doing how the pressure on the man's longs from the weight of the other officers. was crushing his Windpipe, and then he bought all material with autopsy and everything I. think that's a very very strong case here. And I would be stunned and in dry. Oh, it's. Dry. But we've. We've seen drive her. Yeah, we've been, but I don't think they can come back with a a an innocent verdict because the white. Peer Pressure. In, the white community is a little bit. Now. Because these. Little white kids coming home from a protest. Look, Mommy. They shot me in my stomach with a rubber bullet. That's never been had before. They're having these conversations, 'cause they push in white girls down protested. Day knocking white dues over garbage. Now. They got not for the first time. They're seeing this. No wait. A minute I had my hands up. My hands were up. This kept on the plea. Why did you push me my hands up because they don't give a damn? We we had I hands up and got our brains splattered across the side. So. That is different now and I don't think that they'll be able to bring back in nothing, but a guilty plea, because they know if they bring back simply all these cities going back up and five again. Reverend Al Tell the story about this little girl who tugged on his jacket coca soup. A little. He turned around. It was a little white girl. He says she couldn't have been more than about eleven years old and he turned around, and he looked, and she held a perfect and said black lives matter. Little guest eleven years old. He says she couldn't have been more than that. So you know I mean, and that's where this stuff has to be taught. It has to be taught in the home. You know yeah, anti-racism. It has to start there. the next to memorial service will be tomorrow in North Carolina where George Floyd was born, and then finally on Monday there will be a service and a public viewing in Houston..

Yeah fucked up fucked up, really fucked up. In, it is like emotional. Yeah I feel you. Spoke Up All right so this is the part of the show where Julius defined. So there's that moment that's happening because of or in spite of the giant Zombie Mad Max nightmare that we are all living in right now. She's always hated doing it, but it goes without saying that it's been beyond hard for her in Cova Twenty, but this past week was one of the most hopeless and painful. Since we started this stupid fucking podcast so at this point. We will settle for anything. MEOW, meow! You could tell us that. Mark Zuckerberg has chronic hemorrhoids would help. Well. This week was really fucking. This was virtually impossible to get done. And once again I really wanted to scrap it I really wanted to tell you I don't WanNa do it I would. Point you. So we're not doing to that and I was like. Yes, we are I really I yeah. Because I felt like it was even inappropriate to do it to even two point two something good, shouldn't we stood in the shit and let it come to a boil and let my skin hardened more and more and become completely flavor less like the fat boiled chicken. I've become, but alas my friends. Your chicken is never flavourless. While the water has been boiling, and it did come to a boil, and we do need to partly boil our fat asses than another part, it's cooling next to the stove and the feeling start to Russian, and the boiled heart softens, and it needs some flavor, and what is the best flavor for a boiled hardened heart? Soreness. Korn warm, salted, corn, corn, cream, and corn, and she and cheese, corn and cheese. That's right well as I heard was boiling hot and hardening like a hardboiled egg, the corn cream and cheese was added to the pot. And what do we have, but cream of corn cheese heart soup, so I found this corn, and it wasn't good actually. So I found this corn, and it wasn't just one colonel. That's the thing it was many many many corns. became an ear and now I can't stop listening. Is. Now Oh, I see listening you. Got It so you didn't say it was organic corn and it's an a organic kernel of corn. So it started in Flint Michigan and the dominoes fell genesee county sheriff Chris Swanson went out with the police whatever they call them. Protests mob unit whatever to keep the protests under control and he stopped. And he addressed the crowd and hadn't Flint Michigan of all places in Flint. Michigan is the murder capital of the world, and they're either way the waters by word, and just write read it like Shit Shit, and not not any violent breakouts there, so he took his riot gear off. He put his weapons down and he started talking to the crowd, and he said what do you want us to do? We're with you and. And he started to appeal to them. He said I don't want you to feel like I'm against you I. Don't want this I, don't i. don't want this. I want you to know that we care about you that we're listening to you. What do you need us to do? What do you want me to do? And he took his mascot. Everything is just wearing a sweatshirt, and he's just like whatever and he's being fucking. They're gonNA make a movie about him I'm sure. Well. He made his syrupy speech and he didn't want their gather. He said he didn't want the gathering to be a protest. He wanted to make it a parade now I think that's a little tone. But at the same time, the dialogue, the direct connection between the police and black lives, matters and people who are sick of police, abusing their power, and especially killing black people in hiding behind their jobs. Time's up pigs, just getting And yes, there's good. Get on my nerves, something so bad and find. There's good cops, but look there's good men to. It doesn't take away from the fact that systemic sexism is alive, and they literally created rape. It doesn't matter how many marches you do. Nothing gets accomplished until something gets accomplished like implementing new policies, education reform and people in power, changing the system period, but much like the women's movement. We can't have any movement without men, and we can't have changed in the police force without the police, and after the looting in the fires in the blaming and the pain, the pain and the pain. The changes need to start. And you don't need to throw hot potato and run away. In this instance, the only way anything gets done is by both parties coming together to hold the hot potato, even if right now the first step or the police listening that's the first step and I give it to the police who put their power aside and humbled themselves the best. They could to walk with protesters and listen. And even just offer reassurance that they understand and they're sorry. The police chief of Atlanta's said she was disgusted by the George Floyd video and she vowed that she understood that people need to have as much. Room for their rage in pay as the law could provide I handed to the mayors of the cities to for for letting the city's get destroy, because like the women's March Mel. All you guys took your hats on. Did you get any change to happen? No, you didn't Cause Pink Pussy. Hats don't mean what smashing and windows and fucking motherfuckers up. That's what gets noticed once. She sets pussies on fire, maybe that sets. Bushes on fire. Maybe that would have made some change. Rapist cars on fire right? Okay, I'm not saying. I wasn't thrilled to see police. Cars burned police buildings, breaking the firestorms. I'm here for genius. I'm also here for the corn and the cream cheese of police chief, saying they stand in solidarity with black lives, matters and the protesters. I'm here for the police officers who got down on? On their knees, taking a knee and solidarity with protesters in New, York South Florida Philadelphia. Des Moines Oklahoma City and more cities I was moved and heartened to to to see the site and the fact that police officers are feeling it to the outbreak of sadness, anger and rage and frustration and disgust over George Floyd and the systemic abuse of power over underprivileged people particularly people of. Of Color and the magnifying glasses on it, and it's burning a hole through the ant hill that it lives on. We should feel hopeful by these acts of solidarity, rather than immediately saying it's fake, or it isn't enough for either side refusing to come to the table, remember we have to start somewhere, and we have to remember in our anger and grief and utter contempt that the only. Only way for things to change is we have to allow them to change? And if these cops are willing to get down on one knee or put their batons down, walk beside us, we have to let them so. Let's let that small small step be the little increment of light shining that we desperately need right now and let it just light the way forward, so there's that..

Hearing Killer Mike.

Have heard a a more awful. Thing in my entire life and his mom I mean I. can't I can't I can't talk about it so basically by the end of the speech I was crying is I didn't even listen to this time again. You guys. I walked away, and I will ever listen to it again. I have to actively. Every hour. Stop myself from from thinking about. Thinking about George Floyd just thinking about the whole thing it's. So horrific so. But the thing is, is that for every George Floyd? There are thousands more have died wrongfully, and horrifically at the hands of police and hundreds of thousands have been attacked and abused, and didn't die like Rodney King and we all know the famous ones, and of course seeing the floyd video reminds us all of the different cell phone footage. We've seen over the last thirty years since Rodney King in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two of cops attacking wrongfully shooting unarmed Black Man George Floyd made me think of one I saw. Of A black woman in a police car, saying she couldn't breathe and I'm sure many of you like brandy immediately thought of Trayvon Martin, the Gut wrenching heartbreaking poster child for the systematic racism and dangerous class injustice in this country, but less people think these incidents are few, and far between and that the majority of cops in the majority of cities are good. Trump said right well. Everybody says a not a few bad apples. We've heard it over and over again from trump administration people that ninety nine point nine point, nine percent of the police forces good well, we compile the smallest of recent high profile cases to show the scope and the seriousness of this epidemic in two thousand nine, a twenty two year. Old Guy was shot on New Year's Day in San Francisco Transit. Cops were called after a fight broke out on the train. It's called Bart if you're familiar. Bay Area Transit Bay area. googlers. One police officer need Oscar grant who was unarmed in the head, and then forced him to lie face down on the platform while he was being held in the prone position, another officer shot him in the back. The incident was well-documented on a ton of different cell phone tape since it was New Year's Eve and if you haven't seen it, you should watch the movie fruitvale station it's. Beyond and gave us Michael Jordan, so the officer who killed him, was sentenced to two years in prison, of which he served eleven months in l., A. County protective custody because he was released, there was hundreds of cell phone video showing that he was unarmed, not resisting arrest and was shot. Point blank in the back executed, and the officer served eleven months, and that in and of itself is rare for him to even serve time at all. In Two Thousand Fifteen six Baltimore police officers beat a black man to death in a police van Freddie Gray was unarmed and already in custody. All six police officers were acquitted in Maryland and the US Justice Department. Never charge them federally at all. So, there's two things that happen in these situations.

And MY NIECE POINT OPS and I got a lot of love and respect for police officers down to the regional eight police officers in Atlanta that even after becoming police had to dress in a YMCA.

It's called a cornerstone speech. The cornerstone speech that blacks would always be subordinate. That officer believed that speech because he killed. That may unlike an emmy. In this city officers have done horrendous things and they have been prosecuted. The cut different. In this city you can fight over fifty restaurants owned by black women. I didn't say minority and I didn't say women of Color. So after you burn down your own home, what do you have left, but you're in Ash? CNN! Tiered, get a great thing. I love CNN I. Love Cartoon Network, but I'd like to say to CNN right now. Karma's mother stop feeding fear and anger every day. Stop Making people feel so fearful. Give them hope.

I'm glad that they only destroy some brick and mortar, and they didn't rip a father from son. They didn't rip AFA. Son From a mother. Like the police did. When a man gaels for his mother, interesting pain and she's dead. Here's essentially yelling. Please God. Don't let it happen to me and we watched it. So, my question for us on the other side of this camera is after it mearns. Will we be left with chart, or would we rise like a phoenix out of the ashes that Atlanta has always done? Well we use this as a moment to say that we will not do what other cities have done. In fact, we will get better than we've been. We got good enough to destroy cash bonds.

We're not going to drink coca cola anymore. Coca Cola jumped on their side. Apartheid ended, so we have an opportunity now.

You have time to properly Platt plan. strategize and organize mobilizing effective weight. In two of the most effective way I taking your, but to the compute and making sure you fill out the census so that people know who you are where you are. The next thing is making sure you excellent exercise your political bully power in going to local elections and beating up the politicians that you don't like.

I can't fix it in a snap I hate Atlanta's not perfect for as good as we all. But we have to be better dennis moment. We have to be better than burning down our own homes because if we lose Atlanta.

There'd be getting around three or four PM. While the police in whichever city were managing the crowds by the way, not socially distance behalf of people, not even in masks I don't think many people concerned about Karoon viruses put it that way, so different groups would go to different areas and start fires, so there's like the one part where they're protesting where they're just like black lives matter holding up signs I can't breathe like basically demonstrating, and then you know people with more of like a just a higher stakes demonstration agenda would go to a different area unlike light a car on fire or something such as.

Smashing windows and burglarize. Stores but The burglaries and looting and smashing of windows and was just. I watched at one point. I mean it was like flipping. You could've had fifty TVs on. Because of the different cities and direct looting and different and I'm sorry that I'm one of the people who had the the message I mean that was part of you could say that. The looters aren't part of the message, but it is kind of the message. Message is quite there. which is were taken your shit fuck you. However, you want to sit. However, it is for you. It's all a part of the message were burning this shit to the ground? Fuck you. It's all their. Attention, but it's also. Is Riveting shocking, and I've definitely vacillated back, and forth from loving it and I love seeing the burning of the police cars, and they exploded a police station, and it's just like that'll. That's that's a message, but yeah, when you see a liquor store like small mom and pop places get vandalized and broken into, and you think you you know. By and it's hard for anyone to watch. People's businesses where we're all were not monsters and we don't want to watch. Windows get smashed. We don't feel comfortable watching violence. Don't feel comfortable watching theft, but what you have to try and remember and I know it's hard first of all. Try Not for everyone. You know I'm terrible with empathy. Okay, what would I do is go for the underdog into knowing degree so. I try not to fucking stand on a moral high ground when I'm a cesspool of. Should he morals and I know that those people who truly know except for the ones who have mobbed and and beat up. We saw like like an older man. Get like mobbed, and we've seen violence anyone that's beating up another person that's different, but when you see people young guys young girls, we saw every race running into a store and stealing something and running out like those people aren't monsters. They're just have a look like we're having fun. They're trying to get the come up and see like sorry. Yeah, like this is what happens when a when there's a class divide to the point of just like it's being ignored, and it's getting worse and the opportunities for these people and US are getting smaller and smaller. We have less opportunity than we have right now. In Two thousand twenty than we had in two thousand ten and then. Then there was a fucking depression in two thousand ten was freaking. The economy was in the trash in two thousand ten, and in that we had less than two thousand ten. We didn't you know who thousand and it's getting worse and worse until it's going to be like there is no middle class, and that is what's happening, and it's just like this. What happens Walter when you fuss? Stranger in the ass this what happens and I watched it and I was like. Got Some posh should put some golden gramps some pop. Because I had at the time of my mother fucking, I was like sorry by sneaker store. Sorry about your secrets are sorry about your hot topic chain, but we did watch U haul vans. This happened everywhere. You would show up to the front of a store and a crowd with loaded with sneakers, or whatever, and that was. That was the game, so they were fully organized like they clearly plan. We're GONNA take the truck. We're going to go. You guys GONNA RUN THE WE'RE GONNA meet you on the corner and put stuff. Out of their whatever now I watched a guy. Walk on the new in live time. Walk out of Rei. With the bicycle people working out with bikes, but this guy walked out. The news followed him. You walked out, and he took the bike, and he strapped it on top of his car while wearing a baseball hat that he had also stolen from the IRA with the tags still on it and the people the news were like. Are you. Watching this, are you and the guy was standing right there and the guy with the baseball hall? It was just like whatever did like what are you GonNa, do Myrna mask I mean it was like he put the bike on top of the car. He had his baseball hat on, and it wasn't like he had some. Nice truck he had like a nice. That he put the bike on top of and he went on his way and was like. Hey, kids guess what daddy got you a new bike? And you know what and I'm happy for him I mean I'm sorry. No, it's it's all. It's one of those things where you go where I. Literally every five minutes was like. Yeah, it was like Oh and I was like yeah, I was like ooh gross, and it was like no, and then I was like. Yeah, there was never there's nowhere literally I was feel like we're watching when it comes to whether it was the looting and the violence and the. Just.

On the PODCAST, and we just really appreciate it and we want everyone to know how much we appreciate you, so anyone has a problem with it. We don't need your notes pay. All right now. It's time for the Shitty Shitty Week in Corona Guess What Okay all. I have to say as Karuna who does even go to this skill? Because this week we saw the real epidemic in this country, a deadly cancerous abuse of power. It can be racist. It can be sexist. It can be classes to can even be an often is religious, but whatever the motivation the abuse starts at the highest levels of government and American institutions and trickles down to effect every working class person. person in this country and to be clear real quick when we say working class we on this podcast. We mean everyone in America who has to work in order to survive. They don't come from money. They don't have rich families. I should say we. We don't come from money. We don't have rich families. We work a job that pays us and we need it in order to survive. That is what we count. As working class well this week, working class people who have arguably been the hardest hit by the economic effects of the pandemic. Rioted for six nights straight in over twenty major cities, including Atlanta Bakersfield Boston Chicago Columbus, Dallas des Moines. DENVER DETROIT WASHINGTON DC Houston L. A., LOUISVILLE MEMPHIS MINNEAPOLIS new. York City, Phoenix. Portland Sacramento San Francisco and Van Jose. That's like five or six cities in. Each of the riots in each of the cities began as peaceful protests against the obvious and ongoing abuse of power and systemic racism that has taken over our justice system from the racist, sexist religious Republican. Just that trump and Senate majority leader Mitch McDougal Dushi McConnell are stacking into every courtroom to the racist sexist religious Republican asshole cops being hired every day. Our justice system only helps you if you're white man or a rich man and this week, a racist abuse of power coincided with a class dividing pandemic, and all hell broke loose I mean. Watch it burn. Wow, you'll the bird watching bird? Bernie's should have been standing there with his head above it being. Burn. So hopefully you've you missed the news hopefully. I really hope you did. Last Monday, in Minneapolis, a black guy named George Floyd was day drunk and bought a pack of cigarettes at a liquor store with a fake twenty dollar bill I mean. Put on mccollum Brandy 'cause. I'm not I mean especially. Right now. Other than buying cigarettes. Literally Stolen Whether, it's accidentally or not accidentally out of self checkout at the supermarket have literally stolen. Shit Oh, that's not accident. Exactly so come kill me, apparently, sir, I mean. God I had a counterfeit bill that looked real I'm using that and talking about tonight. So, Floyd had lost his restaurant job. Because Corona up like many many people in America he was broken depressed and trying to get through his God day, he refused to return the cigarettes and the clerk called the cops and the cops found floyd sitting in his car around the corner from the store. They pulled him out of the car, handcuffed him and restrain him on the ground. An officer named Derek. Shelvin who, by the way was working with eighteen prior open complaints filed against him as a cop they were open, had been closed, or they weren't. Taking care of they were still being looked at. Eighteen prior complaints put his knee on Floyd's neck for seven straight minutes until he died I'm assuming most of you have seen the cell phone footage of the event, but for those of you who haven't I couldn't watch it either and don't even know if I can get through this now, but I'm going to have mammal describe it like a human being. Because she saw it and was traumatized to say the least called me at home. It's after solely traumatized. It's it's whole. okay, basically what you see, there's two different views. Pulled out of the car. There's also some weird shit going on in the car, which is really don't know what it is, but you know they're beating them up in there, and then they pull them out of the car. There's that one squat. Fuck who's watching the whole thing not doing anything keeping an eye out. He's the billy Bush of the group. He's the Cavanaugh the group. He doesn't get in the game. He had six. Six prior open complaints that guy. Four four police brutality like horses for your like. So then they put him on the ground. There's four cops now on top of George Floyd. One on his legs, one on his upper legs want on his back and one on his neck..

"You have sort of firm level. Bargaining rights to the postal workers has some reasonably strong unions. They have good contract for themselves and so talking about shifting it into a private sector or being competed with ups and Federal Express is in effect a lot away of debating the Labor Relations paradigm sort of to the back door and comparing it to the situation in Sweden or Germany or these other kind of a strong central bargaining countries. I think winds at missing a lot of what drives the argument. Rich the context in which we're having this conversation about the post office and where the president has you know after more than three years in office finally really got in control of the post office with the majority of the appointments on the board that oversees it deployment of a new postmaster general. Who is an ally of his? Is it that the president has this fixation on the rates that Amazon? Pays For Package Shipping. And there's been a debate I think You know I don't WanNa get into the technical details but I think there's been misinterpretation of some research about how much it actually costs the post office to deliver a package. But it's clear that the president's interest here is he doesn't like Jeff bezos. He's mad about things that are published in the Washington Post which is owned by Amazon founder. Jeff Bezos and it's part of this pattern that we've seen of the president trying to use the regulatory power of the of the Federal Government to punish people he perceives his enemies. You know he doesn't like CNN coverage so he wants to try to block the at and T. Time Warner merger We've seen just this week. This purported executive order on Social Media Moderation because he's upset about these labels that twitter has put on certain tweets of his saying that their content is misleading. And it really seems to me like something that that should bother conservatives more than it does conservatives are supposed to be the rule of law on a level playing field for markets and here we have the president using these powers like a toy to you know to to to punish companies that he's mad at. Yeah I think as his threats against Amazon and his inveighing against Amazon or some of the worst things he's said obviously there. There's a lot of competition on that list. And if we want to transition over the twitter thing I mean there's this episode last week is just one of the worst examples of trump's misgovernance. You know he he tweets out these Horrible and malicious and false things about Joe Scarborough allegedly being involved in the death of a young woman in one of his district's offices when he was a congressman. There's understandably a firestorm about this. Twitter feels compelled to do something and then fact checks kind of weirdly Another trump series of tweets about Nail imbalance in the risk of fraud. I think this was mistake on the part of twitter. I think it's kind of a morass. They shouldn't get into the the fact checking a business. But then trump you know all rush galloping off in all directions wants to issue an executive order pushing back against this That in my view is Absolutely the wrong policy direction towards giving regulators more say over these social media companies and it is less likely meaningless and forcible so it. It's just this this whole national psychodrama That the president's dragged just through For no good reason except for he was very upset about what he was seeing on on morning joe every morning and wanted to say the most vile thing he could about the host of the Program. Christine the the thing. That's one thing that's sort of weird to me about these moves. The president has made with regard to various companies is that there are ideological arguments that some people in the Republican Party. Josh Holly the senator from Missouri being the most identifiable one have been making about you know. Conservatives should want more regulations on certain kinds of big companies that there should be more scrutiny of the actions of big tech companies that maybe we should have more antitrust scrutiny around mergers and so. I think that you know maybe there are people on the left. Who would like to be able to find a way to do? Some sort of bipartisan thing. About more regulation but the problem is that the way the president's deploying these tools you know he doesn't want to block he didn't lock Eighteen Time Warner merger because he's concerned about market power in the you know in the in the broadcast television industry. It's because he's mad about CNN. It doesn't form a basis for any sort of policy agenda right. That's true I mean this is kind of the problem I mean. This is the problem with trump best president trump's governance style such as it is He's not interested in policy agendas he's not interested in creating legislation for the good of the country. He's not necessarily interested in trying to regulate businesses so that they run more effectively or serve the American people better He's interested in pursuing his own grudges. His own bizarre fascinations His own interests in ills. That's the only reason why he's talking about this. Sort of social media regulation so that he can talk more. I wish the president would bring the same energy to save morning. The one hundred thousand Corona virus deaths that he does to morning the fact that somebody said that allied he said was in fact perhaps maybe ally and people should research it Matt Before you can you discern any policy agenda around the sort of you know the the president complains about what's called section two thirty. This is the part of the Communications Decency Act basically protects platforms from. If you know if twitter doesn't right what's on twitter of somebody else posts on twitter. You can't hold twitter liable for defamation or variety of other things that people might. You'd miss use twitter to do and it's what allows social media to have sort of the the free for all that you have there. Is there a reform agenda around that if people are upset about the basically twitter gets to make money even as other people go out there and do things like you know tell lies about Joe Scarborough Because it seems that a lot of what I hear about this from conservatives is incoherent it's basically they're mad about section two thirty but then they they want Th they're mad about too much moderation and yet if you take away those legal protections I think there's even more pressure on companies like twitter To to monitor what people are saying on their platform and delete things that they're concerned about because then twitter has to worry about you. Know what if we get sued because the President Defame Somebody on our platform. Yeah I mean it would really depend what you've replaced it with and I think you know conservative senators who have enjoyed tweeting about. This have not been really clear. What is one? I think coherent idea that I know Congress considered when they were working on the communications decency. Act would be to say that these services have to operate as common carriers right like you can't sue the phone company if somebody uses telephones to slander you and you can't sue your ISP comcast whatever something like that. The ideas they're just transmitting bits. And so you could say will. Twitter wants to have these liability protections. It would need to go back to the sort of pure reverse chronological opt in feed no suggestions no algorithm editing. Things like that. I don't think that's a crazy idea exactly But what you would be talking about is sort of crippling the social media industry quat industry right by forcing them to be much more sort of flat and less engaging than they currently are or. You could try to come up with something where a- As you were speculating. They have to moderate much more aggressively. Which I really don't think is what conservatives would like because it's like Donald Trump is frequently slandering people on twitter He doesn't want to be shut down for that reason but he could be if you made them more strictly liable and then last you have what I think is the real answer. Which is that. They don't want any particular policy change..

"Perhaps it's perhaps you could call it aesthetic because it doesn't necessarily deal with a specific piece of legislation in mind But it is a worldview in worldviews are something that a president brings to the country We're looking for a worldview in understanding that actually things fundamentally are not. Okay that actually fundamentally big changes need to be made That fundamentally there is something wrong with the way that the United States is working That the government is fundamentally not doing the job that it is meant to do to protect and serve the people of the state a progressive aesthetic or even a progressive idea would be acknowledging that something needs to change. Something needs to change for the better. Something needs to change soon. Something needs to change perhaps now And Yeah maybe that's not what Joe Biden is bringing to. The Table Biden is saying to be on the level of affect and message and aesthetics that he can replace Donald Trump and bring back the best in America right and that appeals to a certain set of people who feel like the country gone off the rails under trump and what I think more left wing people want to hear is something like the underlying foundations of American society were written long before trump came along. And we're going to build a whole new house right and in that sense. Biden is clearly a moderate right. He's going to try to bring back some of the excesses trumpism and sort of re Polish America and make it shiny new again but not fundamentally alter so Christine in that context. What do you make of the coalition that Biden put together to win this primary? He won the Democratic primary electorate. He did especially well with African American. Voters You laid out earlier in this show. Some reasons that African Americans have to feel that the system of policing United States has been unjust and and unaccountable for decades Some of the Progressive Policy Agenda Items. I think you can make a strong case that African Americans stand to to disproportionately benefit from structural changes in certain aspects of the system. So what do you make of African? American voters apparently having looked at that on average and said you know our preference is the candidate who's promising the more continuity message the more return to normal message rather than the big structural. Change Message. Yeah I think that that's actually a sort of different question I think that African Americans in the United States For reasons that I probably don't need to explain on the show at this point Don't necessarily have reason to believe or expect That a huge wave of progress is going to overrun the country and suddenly make everything better for them. And so I think that African Americans are used to a pragmatic voting style at this point. It's obvious that Joe Biden would be a better candidate for African Americans than Donald Trump. Who CALLS THEM THUGS And seems to delight in violence in the streets and I think that's why African Americans voted for Joe Biden because he's not donald trump. Let's take a break. I've been talking with Christina. The Washington Post Rich lowry of National Review. And Matt Iglesias. Vox We will be back to talk.

"We're just GONNA like need to think about whether kneeling on. Somebody's neck until they die is wrong like it looked pretty bad. But why don't we look at it from all sides you know? There's an obvious. Injustice here at rankles the spirit To See people to not take that seriously and then when you say you know we're going to wait for To play out. We want to wait for the system to play out. Look at how. The system has played out so far The shooting of Linda Casteel and twenty sixteen. We waited for that to play out four over a year at the end of the process. The police officer who had shot a man in his car in front of his girlfriend and baby was acquitted of charges in many of these processes waiting for the process to play out means that Charges are hidden from public view drought until as late as possible at then police officers. Who have committed an obvious injustice are acquitted are like go. are perhaps fired or even put on administrative leave with pay. Nothing happens we just wait and we wait and justice doesn't come. That's not an appealing process. Well I don't know what the alternative is in the United States of America to process. I mean that's that's an inherent part of our justice system. You need to investigate. Need to get all the facts And proceed according to the laws you just don't have summary arrests and executions of people undertake the One of these famous instances the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson. If we just acted immediately on what we thought the truth was or what a Lotta people thought are portrayed. The truth was there had been a heinous miscarriage of justice so our system affords a a lot of protections for the rights of the accused In any instance and I don't know why anyone concerned with justice would want to shortchange that system. Well it it seems to me that the system builds an extra protections for the rights of the police. I mean some of which are formalized legal protections from law from court decisions like qualified immunity. It's extremely difficult to hold police accountable even when they violate people's legal and constitutional rights. You have to make an extremely high showing that the police. The police officer knew that what they were doing specifically was a violation of rights. It would seem to me that you know. Police are given this extraordinary power to use the state's monopoly on violence that they should have a greater level of accountability for whether that That that power is used in in a way that is just and that his legal and it seems to me that it's often the opposite that they you know it's it's not just that they have the presumption of innocence that any person has an illegal preceding. It's a presumption that they get to use this extraordinary power that they have in their own best judgment and it is very difficult to review that judgment Christine. Did you have something something? Yeah I would also just say. I mean repeating riches own words back to him that we don't have a process of summary arrests and executions in the United States. That's exactly what we have. Actually that's what we are seeing on tape. That's what we're seeing in. George Floyd's death. Video is snuffed tape. This is what we're seeing day after day week after week. This is what people are upset about. There are summary Arrests. There are summary executions. They are done by the police and Mayor Dunk lucidly on black people. It seems and that is what people are upset about what they want to see justice for in fact. This should not be happening to anyone. Black or white as Josh says. The police have a higher responsibility in fact to be Pursuing justice and preceding appropriately in these cases and they are the ones who seem to be doing the worst yes we would like to see justice for all involved but saying that some people should wait to see justice while the police carry on us. They will doesn't really make a lot of sense to me. Well what a service. The process should play itself out and you objected to that. So I don't see what possible grounds are not to have a thorough investigation that here's from all sides examined every piece of the motivations and then charges accordingly. I that I. I'm really sort of speechless at at why there'd be objection to that and the logic leads to what we've seen a of that point of view. We can't wait for the process to play out leads to what we've seen in the streets of Minneapolis. Which is total Mayhem and sacking a police station. How how does that advance the cause of justice which? I don't think either of us a saying that there shouldn't be a legal process that plays out. Just do you understand why people in the African American community in. Minneapolis might not trust that. That process is going to be fair and lead to justice here. Well when I say we should let the process play out. Why would there be any objection to that Christine? Object to it for it. She spent a whole answer saying saying that was wrong. So I'm just saying I don't understand that point of view in fact rich. I don't think that you're understanding what I was saying in any way. Well well then. You weren't very clear and so sorry rich. Let me be more clear. I believe in justice. I think that illegal process should play out. I believe that justice should be at hand for all involved. I do think however that it's reasonable for black populations in cities were justices routinely not carried out to be frustrated to wonder whether Justice apper welcome to wish that the process didn't carry out for an excessive period of time knowing that there would not be real resolution at the end. Of course justice should happen. That's what we want to see or wondering why it can't happen on a reasonable timeline. Rich do you see why people in the community might not trust that process? Different point well but I. I'm asking you that question. I'm asking you do you do you see do you. Do you see why people in that community might not trust that process? Yes but the process has to play itself out. That's what I said. And that's what was objected to Christina to rich's point in the legal process we have here is is what's available. There are reasons that we have a process before people get charged what can be done by public officials by community leaders in. Minneapolis and around the country. If we're trying to build trust in that system what do you need to do? Show people That this will hold the police accountable when they commit crimes. Well unfortunately we're going to have to show them exactly that The process needs to be transparent We need to as I said. The process. Proceed in a timely manner. It's very good in fact that police officers who inflicted this act were summarily fired. That is that's wonderful to see and I think that was a very positive move on the part of this department. I think that the public wants to know That changes will be made I. I'm sorry I this is hard to discuss Because it's it's very. It's very difficult to imagine. Changes being made not just to this particular police department but to the ongoing interactions between Police in Black America To the ongoing and deeply rooted and frankly deeply justified relationship of fear and discomfort between the black community and police officers in the United States. This is a very a very deep wound. I think for progress to be made going forward First of all the police officers and the police system police chiefs at large will need to acknowledged the depth of these wounds Acknowledge Mirror they have come from Acknowledged that not just in a single incident Have Police officers behaved inappropriately? But that in fact. This is a pattern That there are reasons why citizens are afraid of and mistrustful of the police I think that this is a process that needed to have been started a long time ago. it's kind of impossible to take police at their word when they say this. This is the incident that will change things when we know in fact that many many many other incidents like this every day and likely will continue to happen. Videos of a similar kind are emerging even as this crisis continues to develop. I think that the police will have to invest invest in their relationships with the community Invest in making proof of their dedication towards the truth and justice. First before you can even be able to imagine way.

"This is Josh Barrow. You're about to hear my conversation with Christine Emba and rich lowry about the death of George Floyd. We recorded this conversation Friday morning before former. Minneapolis police officer Derek. Shelvin the officers shown in the video killing floyd was arrested and charged with murder and manslaughter. This conversation has been lightly edited. Reflect that news but some references may be outdated. Here's the show this Josh Barrow and welcome to left right and center. You're civilized yet. Provocative antidote to the self contained opinion bubbles dominate political debate. It is the fourth week of May and this week George. Floyd died at the hands of Minneapolis. Police officer in the world saw the incident on video officer. Derek shelvin knelt on Floyd's neck for at least seven minutes during the process of arresting him disregarding his please that he could not breathe floyd's killing drew swift local and global outrage in the city quickly. Fired the four responding officers involved in. Floyd's arrest and death but the city has erupted in protests protests. That of sometimes give way to riots and looting in part due to dissatisfaction with local prosecutors statements that they were still evaluating whether to charge the officers with any crimes Minneapolis. Police even abandoned one of their precinct. Buildings rioters littered on fire. They also briefly arrested a CNN crew. That was reporting on the disorder early Friday morning on Friday afternoon the Hennepin County Attorney who oversees Minneapolis announced. That former officer shaven had been arrested and charged with manslaughter and third degree murder and that they might bring further charges later this week there have also been protests around the country responding. Not just to Floyd's death. But other recent deaths of African Americans under circumstances that reflect the racial inequity of our system of law enforcement notably. Brianna Taylor was shot. Dead in a no knock raid on her home. In Louisville in March and Ahmad Armory was pursued and killed in February by three White Vigilantes. Who said they believed him to be responsible for a burglary in southern Georgia. Armories killers weren't charged until the case drew statewide and national attention to talk about all of that. Let's bring our left right center panel as always. I'm your center. I'm joined by rich lowry. Editor of National Review on the right on the left Christine Emba columnist at the Washington. Post Hello Josh Hi Josh. Christine one thing that sets these events in Minneapolis. Apart from me is I've seen no apparent attempt by the police unions or read public officials to defend the officers actions here but it seems to me that people are for good reason. Skeptical that there will be justice in this case that there will be changes going forward in. Minneapolis and around the country. Yeah I think that's exactly right josh. Actually one of the things that has been interesting to watch in this particular case And a very faint glimmer of hope. Perhaps is the quickness with which Not just government officials but even police chief said beliefs leaders from across the country. leapt to swiftly condemn. What happened in this case that there is video what they saw. I think that a lot of this actually can be attributed to the focus drawn to these events by black lives matter over the past several years In the past you would have in the past even two years ago. I would say you would have seen a police chiefs Closing line government officials standing back and saying that they're you know was not space time to judge what happened. They didn't have enough information now. Perhaps due to pressure from activists due to increase notice being called to the events due to the number videos that are circulating now You are seeing how obvious these events are and people do feel pushed at Brest to actually make statements Alluding to truth that. Said statements are just statements. You know police chiefs government officials can tweet their thoughts and prayers as much as they like But the videos keep coming. We keep seeing this happen And I'm not sure what it's going to take to go from. Wow I'm sorry to actually making the change rich. I think you know the to where the disagreement is in public discourse here and I think you've seen conservatives increasingly seeing you know these incidents says you know as as as a broad problem. The question is how structural the problem is whether these are you know individual incidents where police do things that should be condemned. I could presumably should be prosecuted Or whether they whether people on the right are starting to buy into some of these critiques. You're seeing from the left about this. Being a structural problem about race and policing in America. And if so what what? There is for policymakers to do about that well first of all it. It looks as though there's no excuse for the way. The police conducted this arrest Usually there is. You know it's just a snippet of video you're missing or not I shouldn't say usually but sometimes But this looks pretty clear but Opponent aspect on that we should just let the process played self out the FBI is investigating. let's see what they find an when every fact is is uncovered but it. It looks terrible I am I do not buy into the idea that they're systematic Police racism if you look at police shootings Comprehensively they breakdown pretty clearly by race according to violent crime rates and the the interactions that police have with various suspects of various races so When there's an injustice like seems to occur in Minneapolis by all means throw the book at at the cops but I think the notion that we live in some sort of racist police state is is a lie Christy. Now I WANNA take the two parts of riches answer there. I WanNa talk first about the sort of letting the process play out Which you know I I certainly understand why it would be difficult In a lot of cases for a district attorney to you know come out with charges immediately even in a case where things look obvious. There's you know there are processes that have to be gone through But it seems to me. That's an easier argument to make in a place where people have a high level of trust in government Where they believe that the government will get around to justice. And so you can say to people wait for the process to play itself out. I think that there are good reasons. Why a lot of people in Minneapolis and around the country a lot of African Americans especially do not have that level of trust. And that's that's a problem for you know the the system needs to be adjusted in such a way that people can have that level of trust so those things can work themselves out right exactly and I think actually you probably right in saying a usually because at this point as I think. Iran did just Perhaps two or three weeks ago. This is unusual event Basically there's one of these cases often with video once a week if not more And yes I think you're exactly right. Josh in saying that waiting for the process to play out is not particularly appealing to those who are waiting to see justice because first of all waiting for the process to play out By nature notes that well this is just gonNa take some time..
"george floyd" Discussed on The Sean Hannity Show
"You've been trained by the Secret Service. You've been trained by NYPD that some of the best training facilities in the country Of incidents you know again. It's not the ninety nine percent of officers that protect and serve their communities and that always needs to be pointed out Because doing that job as an extraordinarily dangerous one. But you're also you you're trained in martial arts like I am and we talk about him for hours on end and you and I both know that if you go for somebody's trae Ke- if you hit their corroded if they're the amount of pressure that was put on this man's neck George Floyd's neck is enormous for that period of time. It is a death sentence. We know just from our training. It is that dangerous and I'm glad you started. I really hope that this doesn't grossly stereotype. The overwhelming majority of men and women in law enforcement. I've worked with. Who do a terrific job? Having said that this individual is not one of those people you know just for a moment. I Remember Doing Fox and friends appearance I. I was talking to easy one morning. And was this tragic story about a cop killing. She said Dan tell the audience. How dangerous and the job this this and I said well you know it's interesting as I get text twice a year from friends of mine and the NYPD about a guy. I went through with the academy worked with WHO died. I can you imagine being in the radio profession or TV and getting taxed twice a year. That's one of your colleagues was killed in the line of duty or someone you knew so the overwhelming majority of cops that they do great work again. This guy was not one of I get it. There probably is going to be a lot of information that comes out and Sean. That'll be critical for telling the whole story but that is not necessary anymore to tell the use of force story at that acute moment of time what I mean by. That is that we need to know what happens for. Georgia's for Mr Lloyd's family for everyone. The public what happens to start to finish but the video is crystal clear there is no this is not opaque. The man had a need on his neck for nine minutes. When I it wasn't just on it it wasn't just on as his neck was pinned down to the pavement. And and he's and he's keeps repeating. I'll play it again. He keeps repeating. I can't breathe. He's not a threat to anybody in that moment. And from what I could see looked handcuffed. Sean and the Golden Rule. I remember when I got out of the couple of the more skilled police officers who've been around awhile in East New York Brooklyn was a dangerous Area Bay. I was a young kid in my twenty. Does anybody know in their twenty? You know I mean really what do you know when your early twenties and I remember them saying to me. Listen that stuff in the academy's terrific keep it in the back of your toolbox. But here's the reality. Don't ever forget this what they told me. Don't ever forget the hard and fast. I said this on your show last night. Here's the rule when the guy or the woman is in cuffs and the resistance stops. The fight is over end of story. It doesn't matter if just arrested a serial pedophile. If you arrested Charlie Manson. It doesn't matter when the puffs are on and and the people can still spit on..
