And food Tommy Julia. And I. All know. Wrong. So far this year David 23 confirmed shark tanks and that's a box. Cape Cod Massachusetts. Chatham beach specifically. Panics. Since 2009 every now and then. Great play this. All of the pills like get their own tonight spot there are picked up some bad this big speech. He you kind of pretend that a KG. And you pretend all the time he's continued they head to. A team that those who can teach are all on demand. Achieve. Things. Of supposedly happened so they panicked because of the great like we'll guess what happened that great white wreaked terror indicate. Only this undated beached itself. So this time they dragged him put a rope around its tail and drag it back into the water seek its went off. This just in. 24 shark attack of the year reported off of Cape Cod mass the Jihad that top spot now it really wasn't but what utility here I understand sharks there. Important the environmental and if you panic when they return out. You got does that again medicine that would footer going to be put back in water. For those of you that have seen anchorman do as I have it's kinda like dolby. Where they rescued dolby and then will barrel. Things that they shark is a recognized him and it doesn't which is pretty funny we take a break would come back we'll talk it out everybody on the water. I don't charge is a very important to the environment but if you answered with haven't amount there I don't know it's. He'll put a rope around and put a rope around its neck and economic beats it would be a message to other sharks and a warning machine a warning to other sharks this is what happens my friend got like a shark crucifixion. On which the Romans did to a lot of the slaves. Sharks back matches enough. Italian sharks they Christiane if I wish I. But the extra confusing the issue. Ike is Mississippi the next battleground in the controversy flying around the confederate flag. And to the confederate flag was taken down in South Carolina. I'd tension is certainly chip towards a magnolia state our neighbors to the keys to. Action has to be changes Landers is just getting out of hand more out of hand Demeco music so when he seventy. Let me known if you've ever seen a shark. Or ever had any encounter at all with a shark be it fishing swimming or wading or whatever. I would love to hear from. Tommy Tucker it is a Wednesday morning hot so hot I don't even know what day it is backlash. On debit if you. 717 you know to be hot today and just as you thought this confederate. Flag thing was over. Rebel battle flag. Whatever flag when Colin I don't you know I think we know when we're talking about any of them. Neighbors to the east Mississippi is coming under some fire for. Because you know the confederate flag is in the left corner of the state flag. And I think they have read and a blue stripe. Which is kinda similar to the original. Flag of the confederacy I think that the battle flag from Virginia anyway. Some people are saying it has ago house speaker Philip gun and miss Mississippi. Which. No I think. Carries a lot of weight. Nothing against beauty pageants I'm just saying I'm you know I'd probably go with a legislator I'd probably go with some. Not the point. On the US senators both Republicans say the the symbol has to go off the flag. And at the end of today. It's an issue voters have decided to state representative. Tells. In his favor it was a close voter might be worth looking at but it was a substantial vote better than two to one. And then the issue here is canned it. The federal government on and off to be the Justice Department really tell a state. Or should be able to tell a state what what their flag can look like. I mean that's what the issue is here isn't it if the people voted. Overwhelmingly to keep the state flag as it is can the federal government come in. And say now news and data changes state flag I don't I don't see that at all what if you know im trying to think of some. Ridiculous example. The federal government was saying no pelicans and the they're an endangered species which they aren't or for whatever reason they they guided in as of for a pelicans as they don't know pelicans on a state got to change stapling. That would outrage me. Nephew put it to a vote of the people. And overwhelmingly. It passes that they don't want the flag lol and I think the will of the people rules when it comes to a state flag the people of this state. But for the federal government to say now you got to take that flag down. I think that is just crazy given show mad as soon as he works with sharks they jam. Very carrier you know an attorney argued. That say you're not an attorney united. No I'm not at all in India or. At least it had to be about you weren't. Outlawed I'll work on the coast audit you calls or search. Ball all of a topic who. I'd generally the small short bowel what are dropped a pair I'll. I'll get back is better. But but at the marine biologist who are really Smart that he told don't be out there structure or. Big news Tokyo session you know that you go to. The morning the layout. Under your upper back. There are at their seeding or at. We're all. Pretty. Kuester. So. I. You know so hotter about that to me Jim is that if it's on you. Your last day of vacation on the beach in Florida Dessens in this and where you go and it's hard not to spend nets on Centre on your last state in the water until it gets dark and I do realize that the most dangerous time. But man it's hard to have the discipline to get out doing you'd think. It it is but I like Europe Asia well a ball and not the only team with it. I have a real Alter. I used celery. That are like art art work out ordered it. And ought not eat. Now it Tuesday. On back there. About who we now all Christian too there are Howard is the order. Greedy or I'm sure. In the world. So. When it comes to Cape Cod and I was joking around about it and drag in the shark into the water but they're very worried about it before and they've done some shark research there. You'd think they should be directed back in the water great white seven foot sharks. Make elderly youngsters that grow big and strong and end who knows what happens off the coast of cape gut cod or do they did Jesus fish gonna go away what happens. Well you know the ones that were acting Cape Cod actually well. Where track ball to all our cola and also. That there are. That they have world district should not really there are mr. It is not something where there stay right there to get my doctor. So did it should have been in shorts and they're very good standard cheap and then. Because they're boo so much. The one that attack that person might not appear that are probably most likely that aren't sure. You see that chuck you put the rope around a drag him back in the water. Rule rule bumped my belt idle idle so they're cheap they're are you leave it where it is yeah got to thank you Jim. I'm glad it's no bigger or only did what I lit major figure court. They go and that is part of it thank you Jim I'm glad you called. And yeah probably best not to mess with things with BT 722 time related traffic now. On double WL hall 717 Tommy Tucker talks about. Confederate flag being an integral part of Mississippi State flag or neighbors to the east and Jordan is on to clear this up and rightfully so I didn't say that the federal government is going to do this I'm saying what's next is that what's gonna happen. Because if for whatever reason the in this city populists overwhelmingly approved and I think this was about ten years ago or more. 2001 sticks in my mind for summaries in the overwhelmingly approved. The the Mississippi flag wit the confederate symbol in the upper left hand corner. And that it's a white and red stripe. Which is very close to the original confederate flag which. Had dead I believe noticed I don't know let's get caught up in net. But anyway I'm just wondering if the Mississippi if people say yeah we're like the flag and they're flying in on public property in at any point. Some citizen and doesn't like it could file suit with the federal government and the photo federal government would say nodes on public property got to come down just players though. Are just as it's happened already. With the religious symbols David on the road Heidi aren't evident view of the morning. Common I don't keep. What flag greatly due to go to the commitment. To stick and goes and stay. In it and it is in India Asia you've heard Perry. Close. Understand what better way it was all of our first call it was a oh. It was great. Court established in two concluded that it was simple currency. I guess white supremacist idol idol well. The flag and there but it went. Back in the days when it was created over the flag supremacy in fact I think that wanted to be a part of it emote the way. And all the symbols these statutes that are that are being made by ignorant people aren't. Or edgy in what it would. It is expecting it and re property league record Britain Franklin here about what he felt about slave read how much he hated it. And how old was not. The way he opposed to date. You would understand that he ignorant uneducated in. Contract property Lima seemed to be buried in its rhetoric you want to cold light not go out any number between uttered. You won't be displayed as if you need to understand at least awkward secondly the flag. What a symbol of freedom of the eight who bought the state rights have been taken away. You know from competitor. Got to do with slavery that you would like to try and look at the spotlight to the wall not the flag that represented. David only Asher a quick have you given any thought to what you wanna be buried and but what you want woody where are out or see an end adds thank you announced in the tease question but. The thing I never did understand is they dressed people in this suit that time. Now. If you're. Taking in the me phrases delicately the nap of your life why would you wanna Wear your Sunday go to meet and clothes. It would seem to me if you finally at rest you would wanna be buried in your PGA's don't you think there are however it was that you slept Vienna. A teacher pair shorts and I guess have you slept in the altogether maybe they cover you with a blanket to remove a last minute. And a as is wondered Jordan says he need to Wear some hot weather clothes yes I would say loose fitting and white for you Jordan. 730 time for DeVon WL first news and limited David Blake does talking earlier David about the passing of mr. Tony from Tony Angelos and and for whatever reason he in the stamp to shine to me and and kind of adopted me when every I'd seen my get a big hug from Lehman. Andy you know I think if I were to write his epic and it would be it I never heard him say a bad word about anybody and I never had anything to lead in his restaurant. That wasn't absolutely delicious food good stuff and eat you know invite me in the kitchen are invited anybody into the kitchen and in a C should get a Gordon Ramsay shows really kitchens. Nightmare this is where to get name of the show. And I mean it was immaculate every time you went back there and always was when they're dropped off. And over the Christmas card or ordered birthday whatever in any team in a back and he was making up some. Tomato gravy and pork I think it was ciller. Reached in the pot gave me a little bit off on a little played just a taste and we sat and talked for awhile an Italian man he was he was a new loans treasure yes and he was one of the nicer man that I have ever denies have been rather than I've ever met in my life and I really in sand by his pants I liked the the word treasure our you know really applies in this case he where he really was and he had a full of rich full life the man was 88 and he lost his wife about. Two or three years ago and I don't think he ever was name after that is it along loving relationship. And I just hope they carry on I'm sure they will because. I think it's mr. Tony's. Brother or nephew and things frank is had been there a long while. The he's in the kitchen cooking nothing was Tony's cook and long long time but. Let their places of my favorite restaurants in the city eye candy. And imagine. Going back into the into the catch in the smells. And I mean Bob or immaculate little garlic you thank mayor absolutely no just immaculate name at a room once I'd still do obviously in ages and so are seen go really am a feel like the loss different. We take a break when we come back we'll talk about the shooting at Wal-Mart and out years yesterday guy. And so with cell phones no Orleans parish sheriff's det officer. Deputy I guess it was we're going to be Taylor follows amount in and there are some shooting nobody gets shot put. I think the only thing that come in my mind is why don't we hand a different. Division they guard the jail which we don't have a Jefferson Parish and why are they working details why why did they are really not taking money away from the police department and OPD lighters and an LTD guard the GO. Why does. What is the sheriff's office we need the Orleans fair share so this what they have motorcycles. Other than it to work details because it would seem to me. I don't need to be chase and a prisoner on a motorcycle light music so when he seven you'll talk to Raphael going into its metropolitan crime commission when we come back evidently. Thomas Tucker the formal version 745 quarter till late here debit WL and it has to be extremely hot and if you have to take a break every now and and it doesn't mean you're getting old it means it is ridiculously hot. So take care for yourself primarily yesterday a Wal-Mart to get pretty heated. AO Orleans parish sheriff's deputy fired his gun he was responding to a shoplifting. At the Wal-Mart announced years and about 3 o'clock right around that time and a deputy was on a detail. Spotted a shop lifter chased after the guy so Avery said he saw him reach in some Denver's own safety. Three shots were fired nobody was hit no injuries reported. But I want to talk to Raphael going to achieve present in the metropolitan crime commission morning Raphael. According to as a think the thing. Because that thing madame that immediately went in off in my mind to citizen found out nobody was hurt is I still don't understand my we have always different law enforcement agencies that saw the harbor police somebody pulled over on. And of his convention center boulevard of the street that crosses that writing them a ticket. We get these the only we had Levy police I guess still get New Orleans parish sheriff's office and I don't understand why can't be like Jefferson Parish. While we have Orleans parish sheriff's deputies. I guess is what you column OP SO shares deputies working details at Ayers etc. why do they have motorcycles is that. It needed to chase prisoners or is that just so big and we're details and escort prisoners that satirist so may be a way off base here and explain it to me please. Well yeah many jurisdictions you cited Jefferson Parish. Saying that the sheriff's office but they felt so out there and police department the police department he slept. Jefferson Levy and his or her college where police. Patrol in the Huey. Very law enforcement agencies. So off. You know this is not a problem achieved in the world. A lot of jurisdictions. Opt to have police department rather than be equally spot sure that's. That's something that the city of New Orleans. Be it. When they created the city charter so there's still an elective share the original point of police chief in the city. Does this all go back to politics and think about New York may be wrong but don't they have just one police department for all five Burroughs and they might have divisions within and like for the who it and not harbor effort go to college. Yeah I'm not really real knowledgeable about what the police governor and citizens in New York I do know that there's such a point police department. So their responsibilities. Are are in the in the subway system Serb I just don't know all of the skills in New York. Generally is speaking is this a fairly efficient system and would you CNN and if you notice nada. I Jefferson Parish police. Jefferson Parish deputy working ADT Alan Herring hand or the other way around. I don't think that they would be working and he trails inherent in. I think you'll probably be incorporated. Parts of of the parish. Again I don't know all the rules so Jefferson Parish deet tails. But you know you asked a question about. Is maybe there're there're waited do. And you know aren't the problem that we have within the world's police department part of the reason that were under. Consent decree right now is because police department hasn't been able to right shelf. And I've been doing this for awhile and outlook and and actually some reforms that took place under Richard Pennington and then. Eddie corrupt person more quietly and before that under some of the carpal issues and really not saying took root. And we were warned. For Richard. An interpreter here by the Justice Department that we are on the cost of the consent decree and some things are approved for a period of time under Richard having. But again once the spotlight with saw. Department went back to their old ways you know right now we're racing a man power crisis and that should be the world watched from the standpoint of not enough police officers to respond to cry. So that was a decision that was made by a political leadership not on the superintendent. So it's the superintendent. Is answerable to the public. That might be a better way and update old ways that we can begin to. Institutionalize. The necessary change that's needed. To keep the police department. More responsive to the community and the public. Would be. In control of the police department the crew chief would be elected by the public rather than appointed by our political. But zig the other signed the is that the prison sheriff's office so PP which is under the consent decree. Oh sure there's no Gary. With anything. But we've done you the reforms that have been. Instituted and then forgot about the police department. I think maybe we need to each year. As a better way to do. A lot of police department and rather than leash chief. Being there searchable politicians are IP preferential. The question answerable to the public. Thank you Raphael appreciate your time I really do hope you have a good day sure equal Raphael got an anti president of metropolitan crime commission. And it isn't next here it says sides serving that a police officer fired three shots didn't hit anything. Alliance's summit with all the budget and management issues with the sheriff's office is there a need for all the motorcycles etc. That are working the streets focus solely on securing prisoners and making it a safe environment there. Another one says Aaron in Kenner at setter are incorporated cities not the same. The Orleans fair shares of sex and also works the Courtney distributes greens around town of people's homes and businesses in order to save the motorcycles. I don't ordered to save the motorcycles are cheaper than cars delivering subpoenas and on have to believe. That the savings are minimal when you look at the total. Amount of the budget I just add yet I get tired of all these different police departments and I wish they just had once a you know who you're dealing with. And I don't lying. Do you see sheriff's deputies no offense in any you all and you don't make a lot but working details of when it seems like the primary job is to. It make sure that the prisoners is secure in the public is safe and in the prisoners are actually safe. While they're in jail. But when you talk about that if you like it to 60187752. Received have never been so. Oh PP or central lockup. I don't think the OP SO deputies to a bad job managing in the I just questioned why eight they get the details. When NO PD doesn't or maybe there aren't enough NO PD officers. To handle all the 753 you know about it but to hear from the time now I'd love to hear about debit WL traffic. I Tommy Tucker ready jaguar opinion poll which is more valuable to you. I'd stay awful work or more money Wisconsin is proposing changes to its labor laws. Requiring days off they want workers be guaranteed at least one day awful week. And how many hours of work would you be willing to put in if you get overtime after forty. As it stands now 57%. Are saying a day off at work 43% saying work and make more money. I have never turned down work in my life to make more money that means that even when I was. Get up at 4 o'clock in the morning I was here until midnight producing commercials. You know line is I wanted the money. We'll be back when I know what you think Tommy Tucker got WL.
