Portland sheriff disputes Trump's claim he supports president

"President trump, you have two minutes wise. Should Americans trust you over your opponent to deal with right crime bill nine, hundred and ninety four where you call them superpredators African. Americans the Super Predators and they've never forgotten that they've never forgotten. Also it's his two minutes. You did that and they call you Super Predator and I'm letting people out of jail. Now that you have treated the African American population community, you have treated the black community about as bed is anybody in this country that's president trump and Joe Biden sparring last night in Cleveland perhaps, the Congress moment of the evening when president trump was an interrupting almost everything Joe Biden said fact checkers have noted trump lied when he accused by calling black-americans superpredators. Actually. First. Lady Hillary Clinton who used that phrase in nineteen ninety four not Joe Biden still with US Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill and Kristen Clark is now joining. She's the president and Executive Director of the National Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights under law, Kristen, let's begin with you start off with your reaction to what they said here we just were discussing president trump refusing to condemn white supremacists when pushed on at several times and on what he is saying here. Was a deeply disturbing moment last night in many respects. That question will you condemn white supremacy was a softball It was would have been very easy for president trump to disavow white supremacy in crystal clear terms. You think about the tragedies that the American nation has lived through in recent time the. Murder of nine peaceful. At the. Baptist. Church. In Charleston South Carolina the murderers of eleven worshippers at the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh the murders of over twenty people in El Paso Texas the murder of heather higher in Charlottesville. Virginia these horrendous incidents all fueled by a white supremacist violence. Are Easy for any. reasonable. Minded. American to condemn much less the leader of our country and we know that the FBI director has identified white supremacy as one of the greatest threats that we face in our nation today. So I'm deeply disturbed and. I think about how history will reflect on this moment and Yesterday. Was a dark day for our country. I think about one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifteen when Woodrow Wilson screened birth of a nation inside the White House and over a century later, that is a moment. That stands out. For for any ordinary, American as a white. House that embraced unnecessarily white supremacist rhetoric and and essentially that's what we saw yesterday. We know that the proud boys are rejoicing today we know that they have taken this moment to breathe life into their movement. They are boasting about how last night has helped to. Energize their base and help them to recruit new members, and so this is a moment that poses a real and grave threat to black and Brown people in particular in our country who are often the victims of racial violence. and. Kristen. Clark this repeated emphasis the president throughout the debate last night and obviously in statements previously about the dangers of the left and then t for and he kept referring to Portland at one point claiming completely. Complete lie that the Sheriff of Portland had just that day endorsed him. But then Mike Reese who is the sheriff of the county which Portland is immediately tweeted out I have never supported Donald Trump and never will, and yet she brazenly claims that had the support of the sheriff a Portland,

"Learn more at HP S dot ME slash executive from NPR news. It's all things considered. I'm Mary, Louise, Kelley and meltsa Chang. A jury in Charlottesville Virginia began hearing testimony today in the murder trial of a man accused of plowing his car into counter protesters during a white supremacist rally last year, James Alex fields junior is charged with killing one woman and injuring dozens of other people NPR's Debbie Elliott has been in the courtroom and she joins us now. Hey, debbie. Hello. So both. Sides were able to lay out their cases during opening statements today. Did you get sense of what issue this case is ultimately going to come down to? Yes, it's all about intent. You know, no one is disputing the fact that fields drove his gray dodge challenger into this group of anti-racist demonstrators. If you recall Heather higher was killed dozens of other people were wounded the question now comes down to did. He do it intentionally or did he do it because he feared for his safety. Which is what his lawyers are saying. So how will prosecutors tried to prove intent, you know, during her opening statement today? Sistan Commonwealth attorney Nina Alice, Anthony, told the jury that there's going to be a lot of victim testimony. There's going to be a lot of graphic video and photo evidence showing that fields acted deliberately. He had driven all night from Ohio to participate in the unite the right rally to help establish his motive, she says they're going to show evidence that he had this his. -tory of posting racist views on social media, including a post or to post actually, just a few months before this rally that showed an image of a car running into a group of people. Anthony, also said that prosecutors will introduce some phone records that show that as he was arriving in Charlottesville, very early that morning. A family member texted him to be careful Enfield's responded, quote, we're not the ones who need to be careful. Wow. So the defense lawyer in this case indicated before today that he's going to try to argue fields was acting in self defense. How did he explain that theory in his opening statement today? Well, first of all he came right out. His defense attorney is John hill came round right out and said that you know, we're not disputing the fact that he drove the car. This is not a case about where we have to figure out. He was driving a car. The question is whether it was a malicious act with the intent to cause death and injury. He says feels was quote scared to death and feared bodily harm because of this increasingly chaotic content seen in Charlottesville that day. This was August twelfth two thousand seventeen and you'll recall that there had been violent clashes between participants of the unite the right rally and protesters they were fighting throwing bottles the use of chemical sprays. And because of that violence authorities finally declared it an unlawful assembly and dispersed the crowds. So the first witnesses for the prosecution or call today who who took the stand. Well, so far we've heard from both victims and smy witnesses, and they all described a somewhat jubilant atmosphere that afternoon as this group of protesters was marching and Channing whose streets are straights. They were celebrating the fact that the white nationalist rally had been shut down, and they all described in different kinds of details. Seeing and hearing this car. Accelerate rapidly down this narrow one way street and plow into the crowd, Marcus Martin was a victim who testified he talked about pushing his fiancee out of the cars path. He was there with Heather higher and some other of some of her co workers, he could hardly speak for a moment after becoming emotional talking about her and seeing the images of him being hit by the car and sprawled over the hood of that car. That's NPR's, Debbie Elliott, Charlottesville Virginia. Thank you, Debbie. Do. Welcome. Investigators in Indonesia are still looking into last month's lion. Air crash the plane a Boeing seven thirty-seven max crashed into the Java sea killing all one hundred eighty nine people on board. Investigators are examining among other things one of the planes, automated safety systems pilots here in the US are also concerned about it with some saying Boeing has not provided enough information or training about the system to talk more. We have reached Richard Lafayette. He's an aviation industry analyst with the teal group and he's consulted with Boeing in the past as well. As with other aircraft manufacturers welcomed all things considered. My pleasure to be here. What is your sense understanding that investigations are are, of course, ongoing? But from what you know, so far what seems to have caused the tragedy. You know, it takes a combination of factors to produce a tragedy like this. It's never a single cause. Certainly not this case. There was a faulty sensor providing faulty readings. It sounds like procedures weren't followed correctly on the ground and in the air. And then this automated system may or may not have played a contributing role. But only because those procedures weren't followed. And what is the contributing role that it may have played just describe what may have happened on this plane? Well, it sounds like the faulty data was pushing this system to push the nose down. This had happened the previous day, and they simply over rooted, and basically there are relatively easy override procedures were they correctly, followed. That's that's the big question. Mark. Who is responsible for training with new technologies such as is it Boeing their airline that the pilot unions? It's a combination. I'm basically Boeing has to provide the guidance on how to trade people. There are some pilots who've said they didn't some said, no not completely that's going to be something that people look into. And then of course, the airlines in any training academies. Whatever provide the training on the basis of technical information from Boeing. I mean, the conundrum hair seems to boil down to the this automated system was put in place to correct for pilot error. But the pilots flying the plane, perhaps didn't know how to correct for automation error. Do we risk more tragedies? Like this as flying like everything else in our lives becomes more and more and more automated. I think there's going to be a healthy debate about automation as a result of this. But I think it's frankly more important to talk about training and procedures and maybe came from the manufacturer. Maybe there wasn't a proper level of communication. Maybe it came from the airline a of training, there's all sorts of possibilities here. This does prompt the question now as flights again, become more and more automated, our pilots losing some of the basic skills that they would have been expected to have a generation or so ago, I think this is a legitimate area of concern because even though pilots are very well trained the level of training that used to be part of the job isn't completely under percent there anymore. Just because so much of the work is done by computers. It certainly hasn't shown up in the numbers. Things are getting safer and safer each year to the point where flying by air makes traveling by car looked like an active suicide by comparison. But nevertheless, it's important to make sure that the level of trading stays high and that the basic skills of piloting aren't forgotten. So what are you watching for next as we try to piece together? What happened and how for it not to happen going forward? It would be good to get in the cockpit voice recorder that might clarify was it confusion. Was it a training issue? The place where we're probably gonna win. The most is how people work together in especially in times of crisis. So if you accept that automation is inevitable because frankly, it has saved a lot of lives, and it's an accepted part of aircraft design than it really comes down to that interface between people machine, and that's where we're going to learn some lessons here. Richard lafayette. He's an analyst with the aviation research firm, the teal.

"It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Audie Cornish. And Mary Louise Kelley jury selection has started in the murder trial of James, Alex fields junior in Charlottesville Virginia, he's accused of ramming his car through a crowd of people protesting a white supremacist rally last year Heather higher was killed. Dozens of others were wounded and Pierce, Debbie. Elliott was at the courthouse today. She joins us now from Charlottesville. Hey there. Hi, remind us what James background is. And what the charges are exactly that he's facing. Well, he's a twenty one year old white man, he is from Ohio, and he has pleaded not guilty to these ten criminal counts that he's facing. Brought by the Commonwealth of Virginia. He's first of all charged with murder in the death of Heather higher, and then some additional charges for malicious wounding an assault and also hit and run now. Authorities say he deliberately drove his gray dodge challenger into a group of counter protesters during the August two thousand seventeen unite the right rally, and if you call that's when hundreds of white nationalist came to Charlottesville to act against the city's plans to remove a confederate statue. And after the event turned deadly President, Trump blamed both sides for the violence right now, you were there for some of the jury selection today, how did that go in a very slowly at one point the judge even acknowledge that and told the potential jurors who had gathered that the court is trying to be quote as careful as we can, you know, nearly everyone in this first group. Jurors questioned today admitted that they had heard about the case she knew about it. They seen it on the media. Or even knew someone one person was there when it happened. Another knew somebody who was hurt more than a dozen say they have formed an opinion already. So the judge and the. Attorneys for both sides are now privately questioning the perspective. Jurors to see if they can, you know, set aside those opinions to render judgment in this case now fields defense has asked that this be moved out of Charlottesville because it has had such a huge impact on the town here and on the residence the lawyers argue that he can't get a fair trial the judges taken that under advisement saying he's going to go through this jury selection process. And then revisit the question, if somehow an impartial jury cannot be seated now that is something that is a real concern for Susan, bro. She's Heather hires mother and is looking for Justice here. Here's what she told me about it. I want him to have a completely fair and impartial trial. I don't wanna have to redo this fifteen times, you know, there's going to be enough appeals and everything. Anyway, I feel like this will go on for years. So I feel like I'm mentoring new phase of reality. You can almost hear her bracing there for what is going to be exceptionally painful evidence for for all of us to listen to obviously, especially for her. You know, prosecutors are gonna try to build this case showing that fields came to Charlottesville with the the intent to cause trouble. And some of the key evidence that they're going to have our these videotapes that eyewitnesses have. You know victims who were injured or going to testify, and then they're gonna show this very graphic and dramatic eyewitness video of that car crashing into the crowd. And what kind of defense are James fields attorney planning to mount we got a first glimpse of that in court today. One of his attorneys told the perspective jurors that there will be evidence that fields thought he was acting in self defense, and that they should expect some medical and mental health records to come into play. Thank you, Debbie. You're welcome. That's NPR's, Debbie, Elliott, speaking with us from Charlottesville Virginia. President Trump is in Mississippi today ahead of that state's special Senate election, which is tomorrow. He's campaigning for Republican Senator Cindy Hyde Smith, she's been an excellent Saturdays. He's done a great job. She somebody that's respected in the Senate. She's also been at the center of a controversy since earlier this month when she was recorded saying that if a supporter invited her to a public hanging. She'd quote be on the front row Hyde. Smith is white her challenger, Mike Espy is black and Mississippi has a long history of unlawful and racially motivated lynching of black citizens on Friday. The Jackson free press reported that Hyde Smith attended an all white private school. One of many that were set up after the supreme court ordered public schools to desegregate immediately Ashton Pitman wrote that story for the Jackson free press. He joined me earlier today to discuss height Smits mater, Lawrence county, academy was founded in nineteen seventy before it was founded in late nineteen sixty. Eight hundred in fact, this prim court ordered that southern school districts had to integrate so nineteen seventy we had multiple academies private academies, the wrong wide open across the south and particularly in Mississippi and one of those what is Lawrence county academy at another was Brookhaven academy. Cindy, Hyde Smith went to Lawrence county academy and later on said her daughter to Brookhaven academy which opened the same year as Lawrence county academy you right that at a certain point in Mississippi. The state even created a kind of school voucher program to help white parents send their kids to the schools of their choice. Given all that. Is it all that surprising where Hyde Smith went to school isn't an actually pretty common for the region? Yeah. It's very common and these all white private schools. They they still exist in a lot of are still wider nearly all white and some of them still even blotted football games, you'll see mascots carrying confederate flags so it's common. And it's something that I knew about growing up. I knew the academy in my town and Columbia, and I knew the white parents in the town who sent their kids. There are a lot of them. I heard them say I send my kids there because I don't want them to go to school with black heads. So this this is a known thing here. But it just kinda goes a long way towards explaining this culture of white supremacy in which people like Cindy, Hyde Smith grew up where it's so you'd pick witness that a phrase like her public hanging statement could insurance her lexicon. What has been the response to your piece? I mean, do you get the sense that this is controversial among the traditionally Republican voters that Mike Espy would have to win over to win the race. A lot of people have expressed a lot of shock over this. But. Most of them are either younger or they are people who are not from Mississippi and certain honest with this. They're having some people have said, well, you know, what does it matter because you know, this was her past decision not her decision, which is true. But there is the point that she did send her daughter later on to brocade and academy which is a school that has nearly four hundred students and as of two thousand fifteen to twenty sixteen only had one black student, despite the fact that Brookhaven is fifty five percent black. So that legacy continues at the end of the day even as this race drags on. Do you get the sense at her bid is actually in jeopardy? I can't say for sure, but the fact that President Trump will have come down here for the third time since October, and the fact that they're sending him to do to rallies here today. The fact that so much money as flooded and at the last minute this race is definitely unusual to have that question even lingering over a Republican US Senate candidate that's.

"I guess MRs products Baresi, but why are veggies trying to do this in a very that is a little harder to get to the Jews hate white people in the Jews are superior to all other people in. I don't know. It's difficult me to trying to understand the reason, you know, behind the absolutely unreasonable. Irrational, white supremacists. Sitters here. It's just a way of expressing antisemitism. Really just beyond logic. It really is. But I think when when in Charlottesville those marchers who by the way, they supposedly were gathering in Charlottesville for a rally to preserve confederate statues. And yet it it sort of unraveled into this melee, and they chanted Jews will not replace us. This again was a reference to this myth that Jewish powers behind the scenes are plotting to commit white genocide. Again by bringing different nationalities and races. So you saw it on display there and Heather higher was killed. And then you saw play out this past weekend where eleven elderly people, you know, in a synagogue were were gunned down. John. I know we're going to wrap our half hour with you soon. I have a couple of questions that I wanted to dress before he go this man, murdered eleven people as are worshiping. And he's been charged with twenty nine different felony counts. You know, hate crimes that why hasn't he been charged with domestic terrorism to understand that? I mean like what's going on there? And why wouldn't this be considered an act of domestic terrorism? I mean, we absolutely believe the Chevy guard is a hate crime. And as a matter of domestic terrorism. I don't think that these things are necessarily mutually exclusive Vowers. Didn't exclaim that these Jews must die. Right. He exclaimed all Jews must die. He stride of worship. And you know, he was trying to instill terror in the broader Jewish community in populace. And that's terrorism regardless of whether or not Harris proven organized group, you know, whether he's a member of the KKK, or or Al Qaeda or any. Anything else when you seek to terrorize not just a harm an individual because of his or her again, a religion or national origin or sexual orientation, but rather to instill terror in an entire population that's terrorism unquestionably. I mean, there's not even room for debate about it. The most importantly right now, what can the rest of us do? How can we our listeners just people in general who are horrified that this and understand that this is anti-semitism, but this is also about our country, and what's happening to how can we support the Jewish community this time? How do we fight this hate? How do we hold leaders accountable? And we didn't get a chance to actually talk about that. I wanted to talk about that. Susan, I will probably rant about that for a bit. And maybe the best I don't put you in that political corner. But what is the best thing for? I mean, obviously voting getting involved. I don't know to what extent that can eliminate like the core of this issue, which is white supremacist anti semitism. That's right. So I mean, I think people should be voting anyways. But that's not gonna live. Nate this froms, specifically number one. I think people should interrupt hate when it happens. So there's a cascading effect in things can metastasized. So when you hear an ugly comment when you hear a bigoted remarks, whether it's at the water cooler at work or it's on the playing field or at school, or it's a over the dinner table at home. I think all of us. It's coming on all of us. We have an obligation to say we have zero tolerance policy on intolerance. So that's ever won.

"Com slash iheart. Rush Limbaugh here. Let's talk tomorrow at noon on six ten WTVN crowd and murdered Heather higher, and he should have been charged with murder second-degree murder. Plus, he's charged with a hate crime. Even though he's white and had their higher wide starts. He's charged with a hate crime. For some reason, whatever it is that guy James fields ought to spend the rest of his life in jail and Israel, Toby young man, but he caused the death of another he forfeited his life. So I have no problem with James Alex fields junior being convicted a second second-degree murder. And the charges were increased a first degree murder. A few months later, plus is going to be charged with federal hate crime for killing Heather higher, and he should have been because that man purposely caused the death of another. He should spend the rest of his life in jail. If some person or entity let's say a fortune five hundred a Dow Jones thirty industrial company like Nike would actually honor a person who funded the defense of James fields. That would be totally and absolutely disgusting. When you agree. I don't know of anyone supporting James fields. But if somebody would arise some right wing, extreme bigot and said, I'm gonna put up twenty five thousand dollars to the defense of James fields. I'd be I'd be outraged. I could not conceive of Nike celebrating. That fact by putting the person who is funding the defense James fields junior as the as the face and voice of their national campaign to me that would be impossible. Let's apply the same standards. Now to Colin Kaepernick, Colin Kaepernick has advocated this slaughter the killing of police officers by depicting cops has pigs. Pigs are slaughtered. Correct. Their filthy farm animals, pigs. He also said twenty five thousand dollars to this New Jersey murderer living in Cuba. So he's funding. Assani Shakoor in Cuba, Colin Kaepernick, twenty five thousand dollars. How's it possible? That Nike could take his face and his words and put them as the cover person of their national campaign to sell more gym shoes. How's that possible? And the media generally has said it's a positive development for Nike because more than half of their sales and profits come from overseas, foreigners don't like Americans and in this country about half of the country doesn't like being an American so this fits in nicely. So it's according to the experts I've spoken to this is a brilliant marketing ploy. This is great. This makes sense doesn't make sense to me. You can't fund cop killers. You can't fund James fields who killed illegally Heather higher in Charlottesville, Virginia, and you can't do it. And you can't have football players today about six or seven either giving me the black fist or kneeling or staying in the locker room supporting Colin Kaepernick who indirectly advocates the murder of police officers and most of the coverage by yes. PIN by by FOX by NBC by CBS was not critical at all about Colin Kaepernick, nor what happened in fact, most of the time they did not show any of the protest because it doesn't fit. If I wanted to see more of the story, go to the drudge report tonight. And it's got a nice depiction of all I'm saying is cops are the thin blue line between democracy and anarchy and those who advocate harm, the cops cannot be the voice or face. Of any major company in this country. Does Colin Kaepernick fun cop killers Asana secure the answer is yes, he admits and says I'll proudly center twenty five thousand dollars in two thousand seventeen how's that possible? And then Nike said, let's make that guy. And then you have individuals like LeBron James and Tiger Woods and Serena Williams voicing support for the Nike. Ed. Having the face and voice of an advocate of harm to police officers, and that's all acceptable. It's okay. Lebron James said, that's okay. You know, it's a strong powerful ad if some white racist what support James fields and his efforts to get out of murdering Heather higher. I don't think the national media would be there on behalf of that person. Am I right or wrong? All I'm saying is treat people equally based upon their behavior and not based upon their race. Serena Williams, who's an anti Trumper act like a clown yesterday. Shouting arguing screaming crying. She was losing to that Naomi Asaka woman. I thought played fabulously. And she wanted an excuse for failure other than the fact she got beat. So she came up with this act to hers shift. She some victim. That's another never Trump. We continue back to your calls. Flying becomes available. Eight six six six four seven seven three three seven. I love cops and cops. Love me. I love what they do have somewhat advocate harm to a top being the voice and face of a fortune five hundred company e Nike is disgusted. Bill cunningham. The great American live with you every.

"Fellows. Well, is it a question of poor policing or perhaps protecting white supremacists? For example, what happened last week in Berkeley? California, the police arrested, the anti-fascist protesters, not the white supremacist posted their names, their photos online there haven't even been convicted. No, I don't. I don't think it was. I don't think it was that sort of thing. Where were the police were protecting one side or the other? I think the police essentially in Charlotte in Charlottesville. I, I think the police in Charlottesville essentially abdicated their responsibility almost entirely. You going up to them saying, what are you doing? Right, right. Because look, we have had fifty years of, I would say, violent resistance against the clan against Nazis against all these white supremacist groups. They come to the streets and they will meet heavy resistance. You know that. And so if you're law enforcement, you know, the thing that I need to do is keep these two groups separated and make sure that people don't bring clubs, weapons other sorts of things. They're gonna.
