As serious topic on Davone rewrite bank tune in second but that story and is interesting about it. Women being colder than me and I think we've always suspected that you know and that's whether your home. Our or in the office I think I've changed my basement embolism where now on nine comfortable unless it's 68 I think I've done that connected to or to decayed and it was a good thing bad thing. The friends come over and immediately they start looking for the sweat shirts in the blanket. As you've got to. Darn near freezing ball and frost forming on the mosque and then logically I know this has not been to deal with because the air conditioners either on or off. But it's you know asserted sixty dated seven when I go home and as a a differential at a theater conditions wearing properly you can achieve between inside and outside and still punch nipping down 64 Blix does not matter but it doesn't do any good because either running or not an. But I just imagine. Runs. On the news now runs and I'm Daniel comes having thought well that's bill having been to places where I was sent to do throughout the morning on a table once they've for the love of god tyranny air conditioner on. I'll cover the bill for this next hour so. A New York's am talking about. Crime police officers black on black. Killings and and what we said before the news hang on salmon it's in a second we said before the news was if you're police office a year between. You know what this squad because. Black on black crime a huge problem in this nation. The president of the United States stated this but yet it seems like. If your police officer and you attempt to interact with. A young black male even saying leader on on here then all of a sudden all hell breaks lose and I don't know how you enforce the law other than that and and make inroads in this crime situation Y and New York. We'll wait I had I was gonna save it is and that's applied those of their cops make in the rounds. That's what we wanted to be doing well these people are roaming around at night when you don't over here I don't know let's do a New York's and says good morning. According guys. Aren't or Portugal or chocolate yeah and people. Partly and that's the key number. Sure. Are correct the problem. Is. Being. Well. Were actually black black carpet and achieve this that situation order in a dual mark on black crime. I would and you criticized the process of talk radio and simple solutions saw Allen Eskew. You have a problem with young. Black meals killing each other you've already acknowledged Europe police officer you see young black male. Driving around may be it a bad turn signal. Would you be offended as a black man at the officer pulls a guy over and there's a high you do any or taillight out what are you doing out here tonight at setter it's better. I don't have a problem and why a situation where are all all working who saw all over and I doubt. It turned out at the age. Toyota vehicle like the verdict paper work built. That there's some viable conversation there but there are also moments where. Yeah and view that the news. By indicate they're good forehand. You struck out and wet. A pollster over that the situation. But it also the order is that. When you're looking at black on black aren't you start cheating now where she. We saw. It in the salt and then. Cheney in average age are. Not plug in that the other people. In that. What you're talking about long and our time is limited sand you're talking about long term. And short term solutions so T say it becomes Darwinian like where well let's let the people who didn't have the education. I shooting each other and Mike each other out then we'll have a new generation that's coming up. Russia opens up. More problems so how you mix it short term solution. Here. For more used to it in the the the but for that the first. It's. Your secure the oil the. Right now I am I gotta tell you talked about simplistic solutions how do you hope to disarm this country not. Only. Pragmatically not only from a realistic effect but politically how do you hope. To make drugs legal in this country given the political climate that to me. That is the reality of the situation arose and we got to run we're commonly. I think you offered some list simplistic solutions is a very complex problems if you let the look at it. In the real world. You mean to tell me that your in somehow make guns illegally in this country politically secondly is gonna do any good because it Cheney's out of the bottle. Secondly in terms of making drugs legal you tried mr. and mrs. middle America and go for that NC a politician who has than bear. To say that I guarantee you won't hear things of the call Lee fifteen. Coming back under the WO 819 we give some thought to what we do here and when New York seem calls them like getting criticized the process and says talk radio's good examples solutions we just ask the questions. And I'll finance New York stamper. Some solutions he says well legalize drugs and he gonzo street. Tell me now that is a very simplistic approach to me because it's. May be an ideal world that would work is not an ideal world nor an ideal country where politics place so heavily. In the public policy in what is the next person or at least the next election. There opponent could accuse them of Patrick in Lafayette good morning sir you're on WWL. 08 Patrick. And good before you get do you topic is Lafayette kind of start and get back to normal. What lacked yeah it actually are armed and ornery war but again betrayed and let us wondered after the shooting is it. Yeah. Well yeah. On muted and yet you Tommy let's not sing. Okay well call about quite in these we. The brother he's out there in the street. It it got a good. In. Saint. It is. It all the in the white. Chile each other what is yo. Want about 10100. Q. And Porter community to get. You can but at that. The fight ain't gonna be an upper. Remedies. Anyway. Think percentage lines. Black on black crime especially what's going on with younger people living here to sign on about 84% wary got that'll take you word. Now and I'll believe you but but. I would think a lot of that is not over drugs a lot of that is a flat a lot of that renders personal stuff people know each other domestic incidences that Sadr are lobbyists do. Oh with. So how do you fix a problem black on black crime if it's young black males killing each other and we agree on that yet so. The police. Stop that and I know they got long term solutions but it bullet or short term solution. How to stop that without being accused of targeting. Young black males when it's young black males that are killing each other like you said Brothers killing each other. Me. And of course it is good. OPEC. You know black man much so we'll translate to cute and why. We have indeed gotten better parent especially light of the all that you know we got it did not about black got. Yeah and they're more not as always integrated it would be toward you know collected some problem. You know on saint bullet. But for the problem now Patrick to date this year Hadi takes aggressive policing. I don't think it becomes aggressive policing and all of a sudden you're you're profiling are targeting young black males. Dutch shall and in debt that. I mean I went geographically because. Like well they're like G can't. Not every black and effect go for it pit bull young black mold but yeah you're right. I would go along with that I don't have any statistics for that you'll meet code and heavier than a little breeze seemed like. A law abiding family man works battles. Yeah I'd open the outlook for the local yeah any kind of have a teenager and an belt so you know let me ask you a new to me ought to try to do you actually do. Then I mean it's still not going to be well. You know it at the meet some other people so they're not very. Did. I cannot be about jedi. Who who what got UK all the but I mean. Army. The tree you don't treat the budget got a lot of and I noticed you know makes debut entry got in that. We can't we that you have got to look at the load a green below but. It can. Yeah. The door Daniel Pearl island marina. You're written. It's a situation that you again that it lady column in a vehicle backs and a dark I have no ugly when he's artful. I set I hope you call back some time maybe assign somebody else 823 more calls hang on please owning your would you have to say as well. I now time for debit WL traffic gate 24. Tommy Tucker talking about profiling and law enforcement and unfortunately that police officers 33 year olds. In Memphis that was shot by a black perpetrators I'll say allegedly because he hasn't been convicted. Of anything and I also say that because so many people text me. And Zabel why is it do you when a police officer shoots somebody that's a white officer and a black. Victim or a suspect and every one column whine why is the race mention well. He attacks me I'll mention this on the Texans and always feeble in new loans and claim the police are profiling and taken out blacks feel to mention. That the majority of NO PD officers are also black. The only wanna talk about the wide offices picking out blacks and that's a shame. I don't care if you white or black if you are wearing that blue uniform. And a big problem in this country as stated by. Just about every African American elected official by the president himself who is biracial I'll just say that is how many attacks on that too. Com is young males killing each other black on black crime mold and how do you enforce the law how do you make a dent in that. If one a police officer be easier she wider black pulls over young black mail questions them maybe there's. Taillight out there may be some kind of probable cause it legally use a space. A police officer wants a boy you'll where they can find a reason. And then does some questioning well you know weighed on on there where you go on blah blah blah. I don't see how. If you're in the black community or you just care about human life how you can have it both ways. How you can say well these. The people and and I mean only that by young black males. Are committing the crimes against each other so how can you ignore. That yeah it's not a young white mailer young Asian male bit young Asian males that are killing each other. It is clearly been defined as a black on black problem. So if your police officer Heidi approach that the you just ignore that and and I think a trend now waiting and I went back electricity taking them pass a path of least resistance I think humans are like that too. Where police officers when confronted with that given that the scrutiny that they're under a given the fact that if anything goes wrong they're going to be presumed guilty. Until they prove themselves innocent which is counter to the way the American justice system works given effect that they may hesitate. For a second because of all of that and then wind up not gone on their family. And in the easiest thing is just keep on not pull anybody over and if you do that. I don't see a dent being made in black on black crime noting he would use thing. When we come back to 601870. Right now time for debit WL first news. Have a cellular David Blake David I would never do anything to compromise sheer credibility or war. Impartiality so I have to excuse you at this point as we continued to talk about. Policing I get a taxi comes in and says so would to what should we do now. From the start profiling every white person goes to a movie. And you know I appreciate your texting this in but if you can stand in front of the mere. And argued this point to yourself. That this is the same as black on black crime in the inner city. Good luck or if you wanna call and make that point to me I know logically. It it is sounds like it make sense and again I don't mean in salty but it really doesn't I I don't think. You could possibly. Make a connection to shootings in the theater to. The young black men under killing each other every day in this community. But I do appreciate the tax in the question on the table really is. 33 year old Memphis police officer killed by an African American man als say that only because we say it when it's the other way around. And how do you fix the problem of inner city crime if here's the thing more than fix the problem inner city crime from the police officers. You view point of view aspect. Young black males killing each of pressure on you to do something about that because you were there to enforce the law. But yet if you profile young black males and and has been repeatedly said. By politicians including the president that young black manner killing young black man and it's a crisis. Why then would you not target young black man. With the race not even being involved in this other than. From a description standpoint. Mystery in New Orleans thanks for calling on WWL. Aren't you undone while also thank you for taking the time the call. Yes sir I'll hopefully get my honest opinion being more blackmail. And I live in New Orleans and not live here on time. What an average of point. Oh with 25 years now. And bit Martinis views here lately Cheney's use an old model here. I think that in America this practice in the war but there's a nationwide problem was black on black crime. It real people picker called on milk with Israel. I'm a Leo are feared he'd duke on the another leg Leo more the police or anything in in the war. But what else sign in America there is any invisible. Busy day has been created in America and it call this. There's that global spin. And they have a lot of it in the young you've but today and an invite me and Angel called an industry you have to understand. In a judicial system. A lot of times. Blackmailed and our communities we make mistakes. And you can call it what you do to support situation a lot of growth in real story you know we can all we put in any minute. They make a mistake. They get into the penal system and the other time they'll plea deal. And they accepted plea deal of it and that means a similar time and that sort of know. What they built it put him in this system. And a lot of have now been completed a completely failed and that changes the direction of life you know and you. Could have opportunities did and now normal IBO was. And in America what do and they don't always bad. Way back to freedom and and and that night and that. Arnaud is saying you gotta do something with your life you gotta have an option. Exactly what date they don't wait bat where you can have a dual fuel efficiency. Where you don't have they have on the compete fairly. Yes on the on the box and application where you can now.

In his last press conference even given a shout out to five guys are hiring a convicted felon who went on to become manager I don't know if you saw that are. Secondly. So when it comes to you said year you've more afraid of being killed by a black man a police officer white men etc. Would you have a problem then with the police department targeting young black males. While the columns and the mentality with the police so this is not even them it's. Like. Police also quickly so regional. Court in your crop being. With a certain group of people that. Currently being being one. Recent negative thing and I've been. In the newspaper on a new. What you go at which hearing. Then you. You can't eat you're human and the way to think. In the coming content with someone beat the description of what he is being perpetually. Are all criminal. Involvement conflicted and respect teenagers. Right.
