Tense protests erupt after Detroit officers shoot, kill man who fired on them
"Energy behind the ongoing protests in the city of Detroit renewed on Friday after a fatal shooting, involving an officer near San Juan and mcnichols on Detroit's west side. The protests built up as rumors spread across social media of Hakeem Little Tins. And the rumored 'cause that a teenager was shot in the back of the head execution style protesters marched from the Bagley neighborhood through the university district to the police precinct on seven mile near Woodward that spurred Detroit police to release body Cam footage from the officer within hours. It show that the incident in fact did not happen. As was rumored on social media, the video showed that the suspect reached for a gun in his pocket and shot I at a police officer at close range. Other officers are on the scene. Then fatally shot the twenty year old littleton. The whole thing escalated in less than five seconds at the time. Littleton associate who police say is a suspected gang member was being arrested on an outstanding warrant for distributing drugs. Protests were then subdued by whether and the realization that they came together over misinformation, widely shared on social media that police shot an unarmed teenager. Protests resumed Saturday with an attendance of about one hundred Detroit. Police chief James Craig called the officer involved a hero while critics say. Say the police don't have the strength and don't know how to engage with citizens in a way that's focused on de escalating conflict
Travel to Yunnan, China
"I'd like to welcome to the show. Zach and Leah from Peregrination Dash Travel Dot com and the peregrination YouTube channel. Who HAVE COME TO TALK TO US About Yunan? China Zach and Leah? Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having us. We are so excited to be here and I have to get you to explain the term peregrination because it is not a term that I knew but I like it now. That told me what it means. So peregrination is the Latin word for a long or meandering journey. And that's the type of journey we are on and the Pasadena Twenty countries and we are currently in Antarctica so we have actually done a show about McMurdo base in Antarctica. We have never done a show from McMurdo base in Antarctica. Which is where we are doing this show from. But we're not talking about. You'll have to go listen to that show if you want that. So why are we talking about you? Not Well you're not is such a unique section of China that really has not been the main focus of any tourism in China up until the last ten years or so so it's a very unique separate section of the country that has a lot to offer and mainly it has a lot of beautiful scenery that is worth seeing indefinitely worth going to excellent and we have done a show about Yunan before. But it's been at least six eight years since we did a show on that region. Can you put this region on a map for us? So if you are looking at China it's in these southwestern region. China is a very large country as we know It's bordering Vietnam in house. We're learning which one of us the geographer aren't we excellent? And what are you gonNA lay out for us? It's basically a trip from the big city of could make all the way into the mountains and back to Kunming using may differ transportations in seeing things on the ancient tea horse trail as well as things that are brand new in on the innovative side of China will. Let's get to it in somebody till you started in Kunming. We'll start conveying. You'll probably fly in. We had to take a bus in from Vietnam and that worked out pretty well. We walked across the border and took a couple of buses. It took about six hours from there. But this podcast is focused on the two week trip. So you'll probably want to fly into Kunming. Their airport is very large. It's a brand new airport. It's only been there for six years. It's one of the fifty busiest airports in the world. I've no trouble getting air routes all throughout Southeast Asia and it's very accessible for many many different places. I remember a few years back when China went to build a hundred different airports in cities with more than a million population and I don't think I'd heard of any of them. There are a lot of people in China and there's a lot of new airports that they've built in so I'm surprised. It's one of the fifty busiest in the world. But only a little I know could mean itself. It already has six million people. It's a very large city with lots to offer but as we said before it has beautiful scenery even though it's such a sprawling city now they call it the sixty of eternal spring because the temperature is absolutely beautiful all the time and so much you can do in C. inexperienced there too. Is it in the lowlands still? It is six thousand feet level. Okay it is starting to get up there okay. Yeah and technically in the region. It's in the lowlands. I guess you could say because on the western side there's that bridge which it's gigantic as the Himalayas determined easy to get around the city also so but in the last few years. They've been working on the Kunming Rail Transit which just recently they completed most of. I think they're still working on a few sections of it but this makes traveling around the city ridiculously easy and at most. I think we spent one. Us dollar each other trip. So it's very affordable which is definitely a bonus if you're on a budget or if you're not still good so when staying in Kunming we recommend staying closer to the subway line because it makes it so much easier to get around and what's cool is that it has a lake nearby and it's not just it's city by itself and you can expect what you expect from all cities that it has a lot of good food. It has interesting architecture and has an old town has the new sprawling town but it also has cool interesting things like the world's biggest flower market in the southern region called the down man flower market. We took the sub or the metro. They're in it took about twenty minutes and then another ten minute walk but it makes everything so accessible. It's an easy place to travel once you get there the little out of the way to get there but when you get there it's really easy to navigate. And what are you going to recommend that we do while we're in the city itself? Well there's a few things we did which we really really enjoyed. The University district is an interesting place to be. If you've never been to China it's a brand experience for you just because Chinese culture. They're so active. So if you go to a regular park in specifically we're talking about Green Lake Park near the university district they have so many people out dancing in groups doing exercise routines you see families. You are being stopped on the street. Because they've never seen a Westerner. It's an interesting thing to experience. Also the flower market annually. They cut in south four point. One billion stems ridiculous number of flowers. We went there one day. Be should've gone when it was during the peak hours like at three. Am but we got there a little bit later and it was still just absolutely packed with flowers and women cutting flowers. Making flour crowns also really cool river walk which is free and it takes you through the new downtown or the more sprawling city area. The huge high-rises. It's going to the old town. Also it's relatively close to the newer section but you're able to see the rapid changes in architecture in the standard of living that this city has been going through within the past thirty years. It's so evident while this city was probably so small thirty years ago and it has blown up the back they got a huge airport really helps also in the metro and the new high speed rail system. There's a lot going on and it's important also touch on the cuisine. So Union Zine is very interesting. It's it's much different than the other parts of China. It is said to be generalized as more simple and less spicy but there are plenty of restaurants that incorporate this Hunan cuisine I'm making air quotes right now. Because it's hard to generalize what it is because it's it's made up of twenty six mountain tribes different types of cooking in its this huge melting pot of different flavors. Walk around find some street food. Enjoy THE CITY ENJOY. Old Town see the new architecture and enjoy the people around you street food. Is there a particular street food that you found there? The two enjoyed? Yeah so there is an interesting kind of cheese that they loved to preparing cheese isn't really something you think about. When you think of Chinese cuisine God at all yeah exactly. It's like something that even Chinese people are like. This is weird way. You were you eating that. Yeah Yeah exactly. It's a type of goat cheese. It's different than the goat cheese that you and I are more familiar with this ferry leathery sour almost hard textural cheese that they prepare sheets so they let it lay out in the sun and Harden almost taste almost like a pro vallone Interesting tangy flavor to it. They'll put it on sticks in the grill it cover it in a suite date sauce or or sugar over top of it or it can be sauteed in simple also simple flavors like tomatoes or onions interesting base flavor for different toppings Everywhere I mean you'll find it everywhere and also rose pastries you don't think about eating flowers. Most the time but fitting that rose pastries exist in the city of eternal. Spring is the biggest flower market in the country. Also in the same city. So rose pastries in strange leathery goat. Cheese would have to be our top to

"Now it's hardly surprising that Beijing City of twenty two million people his constantly changing but sometimes change isn't a good thing this week wake of Beijing bookshop that had become a center for discussions and festivals and ideas announced that it would be shutting down as China correspondent Bill birtles reports it is part of a broader campaign to transform the city walking the streets rates of my neighborhood in Beijing. It's surprising how many places I remember that have now gone especially saying only lived here for the past four. Oh years at straight level modern China China's quickly but to an outsider. That changes Darnell wise. Mike a lot of sense tonight. I'm climbing the wooden stays to the entrance of the bookworm. Every foreigner he knows this place which is part bookshop pot.

In two thousand and night as Beijing was earing up to host the Olympic Games. I was living at a student dorm. Why out in the Northwestern University district to get the subway into the middle of town to graduate? This little pocket of Western intellectualism seemed like a big day out. Two years later I was living in Beijing. Being in the bookworm was a regular Monday night haunt packed to the rafters for Rowdy Pub Trivia since moving back to the capital in two two thousand fifteen. The book was a bit dated. There were so many new cafes now many other venues to go to but none of them have what the bookworm has talks. Discussions Needs National Literary Festival that brings speakers from across China and the wells wells. I hosted a talk by the. ABC's Richard Fidler he earlier this year on the history of Constantinople. A French journalist friend of mine ended a night of stand-up comedy. Here recently. Heck my Chinese colleague was last night for music performance. A Canadian diplomat named Michael. Oh coverage spoke at the literary festival here two years ago.

That's the bookworm.

The building had been illegally renovated over the years and now they're being forced to go perhaps stipend somewhere else but in today's China that's far from clear clear rarely has spice discussions and ideas seemed so important. China under president. Xi Jinping is going through an extremely greenlee repressive stage hyper nationalism demands of loyalty to the Communist Party and a tightening of censorship. Is stifling public debate across this country. Recently a foreign journalist I know was told. She couldn't rent an apartment because she's a foreign journalist. The landlord what court having some sort of nationalist fervor wouldn't rent it to her in this environment. I really do wonder who would be willing to rent a space to a bookshop up that encourages open. ID's about a year ago. I was sitting at the bookworm wondering if it would be nixed by Jing. In recent years has been undergoing a wave of gentrification the mayor a block named excite she has been on the warpath against illegal structures. The city is awash with extensions that were never approved. And he's cleaning them up with Gusto. The problem is some of the city's best little restaurants restaurants and bars have been wiped out as a result as I woke back from the bookworm like I passed Jing nineteen forty nine a craft beer burried at bit the dust when the local government shutdown the compound that was in.

"university district" Discussed on Daily Detroit
"Mike, welcome to daily Detroit. Good morning. Hello. Thanks for coming by all right. So this is a fascinating piece really well done. And there's a lot to kind of chew over here. A lot of different storylines to pull apart here. But I mean. Let's start kind of high level. I you know, I guess this is sort of the rosy view. But, but mortgage activity is back on the upswing in Detroit after being down for years and nearly dissipating completely during the mortgage crisis. Right. Oh, absolutely. If you look at the growth in mortgage lending in the city young, it's up almost five times from where it was in twenty ten twenty eleven the downside of that is it was so low in two thousand ten twenty eleven because of the recession and the foreclosures, you know, at the height. I mean at the very tail end of the really big swing of investment in home purchases in Detroit in two thousand seven number thirty seven hundred mortgages that were issued now that felt all the way down to just around two hundred at at the bottom. I mean it was just you there was not much investment at all. Now it's climbed over were up in two thousand seventeen the data we have it was at just a little under a thousand and I know from from other sources at twenty eighteen was showed another increase, so there is they are there are people coming in. They're, they're, they're buying homes or by. Lofts. They are buying real estate and living in it. You, you took a deep dive into the numbers, and it really showed a fascinating portrait of kind of demographics, and, and racial composition of the city. So who is buying mortgages now in Detroit while right now even though they are only ten percent of the population. Whites have received just a little under half of the mortgages in two thousand seventeen but over half of the money, so they're, they're buying the larger homes across the city, and it's in really specific places. It's it's east English village. It's Indian village. It is the mid town in downtown the condos university district. That's driving that particular part of the market. The African American population is getting about half the loans, but, but only a third of the dollars for the homes that they're buying part of that is born out of, you know, just to absolute collapse on the market in on parts of the west and east side. There are still sales but it's cash sales. You're not Neil, the, you know, the Bank of America isn't giving someone at twenty thousand dollars. Loan typically to buy a home in bright more than just happening. And, and your reporting obviously doesn't account for cash sales. I mean that's not necessarily know it does not I talked to someone from Detroit, Detroit home mortgage, which is a kind of a city initiated program, you know, working with some banks to find ways to, to improve the, the mortgage market, and help people, they Krista pates at twenty six percent of the sales mortgage sales in the city and other the rest seventy four percent or cash sales yet, which I think, in most any other community is, it's the reverse, you know, maybe it's ninety ten or ninety five right? So Detroit remains as of two thousand seventeen estimates about four fifths black. So what's happening with the they just? Are they being denied mortgages or, or what's going on with with black homeowners? Well, that's fascinating things. And what I, I looked and I saw that number. So, you know, while they're getting denied maybe there's some redlining. And they're there. Still could be that the data is not rich enough to, to give us the complete details on the reasons for their denials, we don't know, you know, the, the cash debt load that they have, or the income that debt load that they have we don't know their credit score. But back in two thousand seven if you look at the four counties of metro Detroit that we looked at Wayne, Oakland McComb in washtenaw, over half of, of the loan applications before denials were for homes in Detroit. So African American seven twenty two thousand seven so over half the time that they applied for a house, a home loan it was for a home in Detroit. You know, by the time you get to two thousand seventeen is just fourteen percent of all applications. So they're, they're they are opting to go to Redford Southfield, Warren Farmington hills. And, and that's the silver lining is they are getting loans. They are kept their, the denial rate in the suburbs is lower than it is in the city, again, that could be, you know, there's a lot of factors there. But they are, they are buying homes all across the region in places. You know, I. You, you weren't seeing in two thousand seven parts of central McComb county, which, you know, had not been exactly the most diverse places in metro-detroit, but so that's the silver linings that they are getting loans. And when you talk to people as I have talked to him, they're going for the same reasons that the black middle class left in the nineties and whites left in the sixty seventies or eighties, they're saying schools, it's about safety. It's about amenities. It's about, you know, high insurance both home and auto in Detroit. So they're, they're the reasons are very, you know, very legitimate very personal that they want the best value for their dollar. It said it strikes me looking at this data, and I encourage people to go to bridge, Michigan and look at this report will have a Lincoln the show notes. It strikes me just how little activity there really is. Although it's on the upswing, you think about, like, where those things are, they're extremely focused in specific neighborhoods. And when I think about home sales. I think about mortgages are the ways that most families most average folks are attaining a home because cash. Sale often is an investor or at somebody who is trying to flip a home. Whereas a mortgage often is a family and to me, I feel like for a city of our population of our size. It's still really indicator of how much economic growth, we need to do to get to some semblance of normalcy. So there's all in two thousand seventeen almost two thousand mortgages. Well, I mean twenty seventeen there were fifteen hundred or sixteen hundred people black people got a mortgage in Redford township, which is what, you know, thirty six miles versus one hundred and forty square miles, you know, twenty one hundred families black families bought a home in in Southfield. You know. So I it just is kinda shocking to your point that there is so little activity. I mean you can look downtown midtown. You can look out the windows here and you can see things are going on. But yes, someone who's making that investment that I for the next thirty years, I'm going to write a check to you this Bank, because I wanna live here that has not happened as often it has it has elsewhere, although. It is going up. And that is a positive sign. You mentioned those, those handfuls of neighborhoods Boston. Edison university district Indian village. It cetera. Got a fascinating chart in the story that shows the portion of mortgages written to black and white homeowners. Twenty seven twenty seven versus twenty seventeen. Really kind of hammering home that shift. I mean university district where, you know, we often record this show in twenty two thousand seven was seventy two percent blacks twenty five percent whites for mortgages out of sixty eight mortgages in two thousand seventeen ninety seven mortgages written. Nearly evenly split. Fifty one point five percent for black forty five point five forty five point four percent, four white people. It's, it's, it's really interesting. What's going on here? Yeah. And I think what kind of frustrates some people in the African American community talked to some realtors, and they all brought it up to, you know, there was so much lost. Wealth when the recession hit in the work for closures, just took so much money out of the real estate market, which for a lot of people, that's, that's their biggest chunk of their wealth, as you know, how much equity do you have in your home? You know. So there are people I talked to someone you know, who lived in the university district who had bought a home twenty years ago for over three hundred thousand dollars. You know she didn't sell, but at the trough that home was probably were sixty eighty ninety thousand dollars and over neighbors who did sell. So they lost all that. Well, and the people who are choir re-acquiring, that wealth are largely people who don't look like the people who sold the home. So the, the loser was, maybe the African American family. And the winner is either the speculator, who's the bridge, or it's the, the white family, perhaps bought it five years ago at two hundred and now it's worth three hundred four hundred and that kind of frustrates, it frustrates people, as you know, the people who are benefiting are not the same people as those who lost. Absolutely. I mean, one sort of devil's advocate argument though, is that, you know, Detroit for. Longtime, frankly, has become sort of racially homogeneous like non diverse in, in the opposite way. I mean it's it's you know, I think at one point we were almost ninety percent black, if I remember correctly, it could be off a little bit there. But but, you know, most cities, considered healthy are much more. You know, diverse mix of of racist. So isn't this a good thing that more white people are coming back into Detroit? I mean what do people say that like do you hear that? And I you know, the only frustration I heard was about the was about the wealth and lost wealth. And who who's gaining, I it is positive that, that African Americans are feeling comfortable to move into the suburbs. In places where you know they did not want to go before you know, there's a fear that if they if they do move up, there will won't one of reset getting us. I mean Southfield is now majority black by by a great deal you know. And then at that point, do we do we just move the problem, you know, ten fifteen miles to the north or to the east to the west that you know that. That, that is a concern. You know, the university district the percentage, African American has changed its gets gone down a little bit. It is tough. I mean, systematically African Americans have been screwed in the housing market for decades, you know, by the government, who, who set up the retina the that just by the nature of someone's skin said, this was an undesirable area, you know, that was in the thirties and the forties. It continued until the fair housing act in the sixties and just ad hoc. It continued for many years after that. And then here, you have the predatory loans coming in where they were targeting these people for instruments that were ultimately the reason they had to get out of the house. So they, I is it a good thing. Yes. But you know you can see that frustration that we'll wait a minute. The whole system has been been rigged against us for decades. Well, one thing I would add that just context, I think a lot of times here in Detroit metro Detroit, we think of ourselves as a unique snowflake, but although the problems were exactly. Debated here in Detroit across the nation. We have had issues of inequality and enact an access to wealth, and people of color, losing losing wealth. I was having conversation with one of the group when the foundation groups, it's very involved in the community, and they share with me, an interesting statistic. Apparently, there's only like one city in Georgia, like a small suburban city where income went up, but it didn't turn whiter like across the nation when places do better economically. They turn whiter. And that's kind of terrifying statistic and really speaks to the racial inequality in our country. Absolutely. I mean, we know the word gentrification is used a lot and, and I hesitate to use it in Detroit because, you know, I saw when I lived in Chicago in Chicago, where people would be moved out as as, as the block after block would be improved. And then, you know, sold to, you know, or rent it to white, folks, and, and there's another group, head to find a new place to live. I'm not sure we're seeing that completely in Detroit. One of the reasons we did the story was the New York Times, and it's upshot did this fascinating look at, at how so many central city neighborhoods were becoming whiter from exactly what you're talking about. And there's this video from Raleigh that is just stunning in that piece that shows, you know, the hundred year old wood frame, bungalow, African American family somewhat well-kept. And then the next house is a modern steel clad two story building with, with a BMW in the driveway, then the next house was another wood-frame home and the next one's wood frame. And then another modern house and what they're what's what they're experiencing is the value of that land was so low. Why because of all factors we mentioned before the, you know, the, the segregation and the lack of opportunities that now they're coming in. Is that neighborhood ever going to be diverse or is it just gonna suddenly all everyone's gonna? To have a modern house, and all those bungalows are gone. I don't know. I know the data doesn't really dive into this, but I'm gonna share my own personal experience from having lived in an area north of cork town, having lived in midtown and the university district over the last seven plus years. And what I've noticed was is that the neighborhoods of change of people who've moved in, in general. It doesn't feel like and just talking to people like where you from. Hey, welcome. It doesn't feel like these are folks metro Detroit that are moving into greater downtown. You've got it..

Sure that's gone up in the don't now, neither do I algae may be. Juice bar. Yeah. There exempting the AB that's up in the university district. If you're new here from up zoning you at thoughts in the editorial meeting. In fact, you had you had to motions around this. Here's my thought on the album there every week. You don't get to pick. What happens to your neighborhood after you approve a massive transit project like a light rail station in your neighborhood? Do you know that the U district approved it because sound transit? They're going into Pierce county. Who said no fifty seven percent Redmond said, no physical said. No can't said, no. Yeah. It's there. The dig has started. Of the university district approved. Approve because it's happening was gerrymandered district sound transit setup. But I heard that. They probably voted for it. There. You have. Then decided what your neighborhood is. It is serving commuters and students. I it's not serving your single family homes. Yeah. The train has nothing to do with commuters. But let's put that aside when you talk about that though, and the purpose of this is commuters because it's going to be a lot of students commuting in and out of YouTube, which is walking distance from the light rail station, where it's going to be this one particular the other you'd have light rail stations down over by stadiums, you can still walk there that way too. That's on the other side when you already have approved that you're going to get your AAA in there for sure because they can pay that lease price. But you are going to lose the vegan buffet that was formerly in the florist building. You know, what I mean like you don't get to cherry pick which coffee. Shop stays in. Which one goes in here. You're fifteen restaurants all next to each other. Maybe one could make the least, but the other ones are going to be replaced by your T mobile store. Your. Subway, and like your commercial mass appeal. Retail. I agree with you entirely. But I I've enjoying watching this. This makes me happy because why it's because I like to see people enjoy the fruits of their decisions I like to see people in the U district say, hey, wait a minute. We brought in the chew chew train. And now the chew chew train is killing all the small businesses. And well, look at this when the teacher train came in now, a whole bunch of big retail came in because it's the big retail who gives money through the dark money system of going through mass transit now transportation choices coalition with your to unregistered lobbying groups, that's how you make donations to sound transit sound transit illegally gives money both those groups through membership fees, etc. And big developers is K O. W news Tribune, others have shown big developers who give money to those organizations benefit. So I like to watch people realize the effects of crony capitalism this way. Sorry sorry capitalist. Pardon me. You will still have your like mom, and the FAA you'll still have that in a couple of places McFaul, you're still going to have your. Bookstore will still be there in some sort of capacity. But that Lisa price keeps going up and up and up in NATO. I can't wait. I can't wait to watch is when the affordable housing up on top of the Choo Choo train station up on Capitol Hill eleven years from now when they can turn it into luxury condos, I can't wait to watch after they get their tax write off for for eleven years or twelve years, and they turn it into luxury condos, which is the way it works in all these places. Where transit makes the decisions. I also like this. This is this is fascinating the Washington state university. They have a sixty one percent growth in w students. So the students are getting huge. I mean 'cause you and I don't know what it is. It's either the they got the beef down there because it's down in in in western Washington, or is pardon me. Oh, wait. It's the student body overall. Yeah. Okay. This is going to say sixty one percent size increase in the students. You could feel the football team just with the general population. It's sixty one percent growth in student body. So attendance, not their bodies. So we should have cleared that up in the editor. Because now get nothing. Well, I don't care, but. The choices. Oh based on the lifestyle of their campus. Now, that's a huge consideration. Not just what programming is there. Yeah. But then there's this. And this is even better the the administrators there eight hundred sixty one percent larger. So they're like prebiblical giants. Now redesigned the way sixty percent growth in sixty one percent growth in the number of students eight hundred and sixty one percent growth in the number of administrators candy. If were there was a way to cut the cost of big education. If only there was something we could do to make it affordable. We had a lever we could turn. Now what I was looking through this. I was trying to see did they separate out online classes versus online professors versus visit. He's your administrators like, oh, no. It's just admin. Yeah. Administrators later in the show. We're going to talk about a job in. Let's see the country because that's going to get people interested where an artist is going to pay you to do literally nothing. Right. Eight hundred sixty one percent growth in this. Well, maybe paying Norma find a justification for that. Yeah. Hold on jeopardy. Sympton? Maybe it's. What if they mean? No is not considered an administrator. No. So as I make the point constantly when you hear in my judgment. Oh, we need to have free college. We need to have the government step in and free college. Take your business in this is how I view this candy imagine this imagine that we're doing the show. We've got me you Mike is gone Andrews here, Tracy trailers doing traffic. Okay. David on the board. Yup. Okay. Did burbank. Now, imagine what would that be if we were to grow sixty percents? So we'd have let's say eleven people in here. I would love eleven people in here on top of that. Then we would have how many administrators we'd have about seven hundred administrators about nine hundred administrators for this show, and we don't have the money for college. Are you kidding me? There has to be something specific that these administrators do or administrate. No that they're absorbing another job that we think is not separate your has to be something. I was really hoping. Yes, he reasoning would work out to tell you what if you work for the state university. No this Debbie know, what what falls under administrative title if you work for the Washington state university. Get on the show, Texas at nine eight nine seven three income unexplained this in a way, that makes sense to everybody this this percentage of growth, lots to get to Tucker Carlson, apparently was this in two thousand three was this when he was additionally for the junior high talent show, I don't know how far back this goes.

Even Just Hearing About Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes Is Terrifying
"Was a very good looking smooth talking clean cut double life living serial killer that operated in the seventies up in the Seattle area. Notorious and his story has a lot of twists and turns that I think end him up in Florida's that we ended up I believe so. Yeah, I it wasn't just murder by the way rape kidnapping burglary. Dismemberment decapitation necrophilia checked all those boxes is that all. He was one of those guys who you would never ever ever assume was into this kind of stuff because he was so clean cut. So affable. And because this month marks the thirtieth anniversary of his execution. True crime filmmakers are releasing two different. Ted Bundy projects there's the conversations with a killer. The Ted Bundy tapes, that's on Netflix. They say not to watch that alone. Which makes me want to race home and watch it alone. It is a post to be chilling. The other one is extremely wicked shockingly evil and vials starring Zach Ephron as Ted Bundy, which I think is a great class a casting call. He killed thirty women. He confessed any way to the murders of thirty. He might have killed more. The Zach Ephron picture is framed by a book that was written by his longtime girlfriend. There is a woman Elizabeth club. She went out with Ted Bundy during his reign of terror like ten years or the seventies. And she talks about how they first met. I met at a local bar and the university district of Seattle September nineteen sixty nine. And she was twenty four at the time. She was recently divorced, and she had left her hometown of Salt Lake City looking for a fresh start ordinary night. She heads choose Sandpiper tavern with some friends, she instantly notices this tall, sandy haired. Man, clear blue is that she said lit up when he smiled. He was seated by himself. Ted Bundy was he was twenty three at the time. And she says she was surprised at how approachable and easily amused. This handsome man was they danced they flirted. She said I knew when I first looked at him before we even had danced that he was a cut above the rest of the crowd. She was captivated by him. She took him home that night from the bar. Wow. He and she whatever and the next morning he wakes up and notices that she's got a hangover. So he decides to make her breakfast. She says she almost immediately started dreaming of a future with him. Their their romance blossoms through normal. Dating habits picnics homemade dinners movies meeting, friends, and all that. And probably most importantly. Group dates with her three year old daughter. She said that she was amazed. How quickly he assimilated to domestic life as a as a father figure and a protector to both that he would talk and eat and take care of little Tina when she wasn't around her. She was at work or whatever that he was a family man who watch up Saturday more. He would wake up early Saturday mornings to watch cartoons with our well while mom slept in and by the way, apparently in this film. This new Netflix documentary you see because he's in a lot of family pictures and whatnot. You kind of see what you're talking about that he had integrated himself into family life. Oh my goodness. And in and she she introduces him like you said to her family. She says that her her introduction to his family wasn't as warm that it was tinged by a lifelong resentment Ted felt for his mother because she kept the identity of his birth. Father a secret it was he was fourteen years old when Ted discovered that he was. Illegitimate. I guess that's what his cousin called him that the man who raised him along with us for other siblings was not as real father, and that really pissed them off. It's probably the root of all of it. Well, it was a route maybe or something, but he was a sadistic psychopath. You know with the. Who was about to go on a murder spree that is can rival any in history. She says that they were together for three years that turned into five years, and then it kind of started to unravel their relationship. Did she said it kind of became a mental roller coaster that there was a series of emotional jabs in counter-punches that he would go on dates with other women, which would send her into a total spiral before he would smooth things over and say all the right things, and she would counter strike by going out with men hoping that it would make him jealous and prove that he cared, and it just the cycle continued over and over and over. I guess the the whole charm thing that he had in the charisma thing is is not so uncharacteristic. If with a lot of these shows, you paths. That's what psychiatrists said when they were looking at this Ted Bundy case, anyway, go ahead. I then what happened Ted bundy's car? I didn't know this is now a tourist attraction at the national museum of crime and punishment in DC. She says the girlfriend says she first became suspicious of Ted Bundy because there were eye witness accounts with missing women that said the suspect was driving a metallic Volkswagen beetle. Yeah. That's what was going on women were starting to go missing. This is all going on while he's still dating her. He's killing women. And as you say more than just killing them. I gotta believe that to a degree since she's looking the other way with his cheating on her that there was a bit of a head in the sand syndrome going on in terms of Ted Bundy, and and not wanting to believe that he was. That he was the perpetrator even know things were lining up.
