Think Tank 1210am Police Shootings

Jul 18, 2016|

Your reaction to yesterday’s Baton Rouge Shooting – police officers ambushed – 3 dead – 3 wounded – 1 fighting for his life Sunday afternoon. The shooting happened near the busy intersecton of Airline & Old Hammond Highway. One suspect, later identified as Kansas City, Missouri resident – Gavin Eugene Long, was shot dead at the scene in what witnesses said was a shootout. What happens in a society when the people, who do the brave work of protecting us from violence become targets of violence? What happens when citizens who police are paid to protect - fear them? What happens when police... who may now fear getting ambushed... fear the people they are supposed to protect? What are some possible solutions going foward, that would improve police relations with the public. Is NOPD's solution of 2-person vehicles & 2 vehicle responses a good one...even if that means slower response times? Is helping police on the job to feel safer - worth it?

I went through war of one home through tough times. And we were the port kid we were not the officers. We were at the bottom of the barrel on. A group with kids that parents were on welfare. Work with kids whose parents were in prison forward with kids written off than like me not them like my culture Indian why. To serve five book. We all got together and found. And the reason I'd say to survive. As I can't how many of mob wiper in some black ribbons and white and black ribbons at the same. Meeting. Say this is gonna blow them and catch fire in blazed if we don't insult them or anybody talking about what to do. So. Had a couple people today that I think. Actually had some good ideas. And in situations like this I don't think there's any more moderate boards. Or boy's dad that understands. Witness in the black community owned slap by because of low black or white community. There's different sections the tide of from people. But Rome where he can problem. I think gives tremendous educational understanding we have captain black. Anti crime activist. Who are New Orleans capping good talking here it's been awhile. Garland I would but at least serve also would be anywhere. A invoice numbers. I'd talk to warn you do and what aren't there are answers out. Well first let's not rush. To accept an invitation to a race war. You know less. Is clear that there's no agenda war but it just don't work if we buy into what we mean by me we meaning white. We've been in America. Looking ahead the latest series of events. You have to do so. Our political almost. And police ambush. Acceptable methods and American life. No overwhelming majority of course Politico or political orientation or background which say no. And that's what we need to expect no we don't need to Wear some people might get. Condemnations play well because also. Mr. orders ethnicity and everybody like mostly where because of the victim's ethnicity. There are Bartlett mostly where the same way. You tried to region execute very. And reaching beyond the rhetoric get to the common reality and common values we share. What you sort. Sure of new Norman was on Tommy show this morning. And interpret using I don't have cringed group but I think. I heard him saying. You know part of the problem to DE news. We just hear what we won't care. We pick and choose the city and moved here. Something different it doesn't matter. Doesn't get at a guide text me and said. You're worried you'd treating black people on this to cancer. And there to I I would challenge anybody delusional all three it's absolutely none of that. And love Pat White send me tax or why you're you were depending on the blacks. How we get past. Dole lose. That just. I had third. Don't have the brains. To get past. The way they think to get to whose solution. Or just don't want to. You don't have to include them in the pro surged amid Ingraham and you review shall obviously you aren't a at all you. Situations like where is very user and so the people were really actions solutions group. We're not spending. Are remote or particular Islam or equipment should be we're getting the Germans saying. How do we stop this become the feature so awkward and out. Give mr. York. Do you want America to be calm like co host NORTHERN IRELAND Ireland in the 1970s. Where it. Militarized police. And actual soldiers patrol the streets were total local care. It would be no belt arrests did not have a bullet holes were taught to blow white policemen morals we weren't so can. And white terror and the reason why make that distinction. It is for. Some of the issues are raised some people that we don't slip caller and we got to define everybody. So must that step I'll.

And in the cities around the country that's one. Very easy solution which is already in play. We evident in the police monitor and the police marbles all those goals please talk to people but it can be very sorry. Most middle forties and even ways. So that would be. Solution number one and put on the table just as an institutional sense you have to build those strip it all revert. All right. Born of these hours. Venerable auction on fox and blows.

It is may shock some people my pastor happens reward. He and the members of his nomination. Our denomination. On a daily if not weekly better. Don't ship and the people helping people talk of people out so we can project. Put build relationships and build new. Usually you only want to know are there a lot of bother. No no not one bit it's dark nomination. So that producer is generally. So the bat and drew was on the routine basis and who almost sort of routine very. Missionary back to a normal routine days. You go denominations across the board within Christian them. And all the religions that are out there acting in their communities program rules well not a model throw in the ball. What were in the meat in the lead these the world. Or I remember one final chords from your very limited time. Isn't working do you see results. Output to do those were in effect. Has been slighted that Lohse. And doubtless. Our old Norman went out later on as we do you or I would say prove that it is work well most people. And we may be bitter old politics we might be different proposals on the issue of police. But most Americans. Do not bring an acceptable responses. Political almost. And an abortion.
