Think -- say so far this day. Lot of text messages calls the whole shebang got a bunch stuff and apartment and and -- started out today talking. With thug Jerry Riggs who is the principal at memorial Baptist school and we were talking about an article a read. Already schools that have this kind of stuff emplacement Marietta Georgia is gonna -- their name to -- they are going to introduce a panic button in their school. In case of an intruder a lot of things so is basically the way they're gonna endure over there is so like a -- but like the fire alarm and hallways and such. And in the discussions I think it's a better idea to given to the teachers themselves on the and they have to Wear like IDs and land units around their necks. Bears. I think it would be better that way. With the caveat of course and also before I taught but only at the college level I've never taught fourth graders are never taught tenth graders. Except privately and small classes in private teaching situations. So then I mean what do you think about it your teacher what do you think would you like to have thing around your neck or around your own land -- -- -- -- a panic button. -- you were to hit it it would be numb it would inform the police. And I mean there hasn't been a certain amount of training with the student make sure and look these are the situations you use this under not because. Yo and a teacher or UN a paragon an argument a parent teacher conference now you have an intruder in the school. A fire. A big fight that involves like you know fifteen or twenty kids. Not it's not some fight between two because I've spoken with -- teachers and judgment and coaches and such -- this just two guys. You know in about two minutes -- gonna -- each other -- -- be the end of it I mean that you need to call the police but you don't need to press the panic button and have to -- -- show up that's. That's not what this thing would before. So if your teacher would you like to have something like this. He hit a good idea some people think volunteer who knows. Is that a good idea for teachers have a panic button that would not it would inform it would it would. Draw the police it would inform everybody else who is wearing one that something is going wrong and it would indicate who. Actually set off the alarm because again if if somebody if an intruder comes into the back -- the school the office couldn't see it. The first teacher does see some like that presses the button. Then everybody can lock down without. Informing the intruder that he's been that that they're aware of them. Which I think would -- to the panic level if they were to make an announcement over the loudspeaker. That's firstly the prosecuting and apart was about let's Kuo in the city and Texas and Missouri city Texas. A growing list of cash strapped towns that are charging you tax if you crash your car you get a wrecked their they charge you for. You're not only pay taxes to maintain. A police department fire department EMS. But if you mean those services they send you a dominant car crash and I mean that the -- and twice for irks me. And that makes three and talking to -- -- don't want now in my gonna have to pay taxes to maintain a police department. But if somebody -- my house that I am I have to pay extra. You know the overtime for the detective to actually perform his duties and go out and find it -- mean and I'm paying. For a fire system and the justice system and any -- system that's what I'm paying for all of my taxes. You know if if you're gonna send me a bill otherwise woman just let me pay for -- as I go if I need the cops all write a check when they show up. Finally the amass -- Ratajczak when they show up. -- is different -- delusional whole house why I don't know about that anyway that's in the -- to third thing in the pot. And all the 260170. -- call 866889. 087 me is I told fry an 8787. In his recent attacks and I do have a whole bunch of these signals don't seem to be really like in the text part. Third thing the pot is actually are pretty opinion poll with York. And don't -- Newton and the. Well. -- opinion poll should a parent or patient be allowed to dictate medical care based on race. What it is is there's a hospital here it is. This is in Flint, Michigan. Basically what happened was in there there's a -- suing the hospital. Bosh claiming that this from CNN claiming an agreed to a man's request that no African Americans care for his baby. Apparently in the the nurse -- battle she's worked at the facility for 25 years. A man approached battle while she was caring for his child in the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit now neo Natal intensive -- you're talking about. These are the -- means. That are hanging on by a thread. As far as I'm concerned -- was the best doctor you know what I remember most that. Sanford and Son remember Sam there was an episode we had to get this tooth fixed and he wanted the white Dennis white did as for me please. You know. Sort of dug them the black Dennis leaves a -- in this country and he goes and that's a little tricky about a called ahead of our dental surgery and here comes the same black that's gone now if you you know the amount of ice and wind get your foot out of it. It was -- who the best one mayor. Anyway she's been organ -- 25 years the man approached her. Ask her to speak to her supervisor. She pointed to the nurse the charge -- In his direction he said his name is not mentioned in the filing but he showed her attack -- that may have been quote a swastika. Some kind. And told her he didn't want African Americans involved in his -- -- -- according to lawsuit she's found -- made its way through the management ranks and was granted and battles manager called -- home to teller she would be reassigned and why. And so now she's -- she is shocked she's suing her attorney is told CNN affiliate she was very upset she was very offended. The hospital and the replied as the below last few days. As a a couple of days ago a note was made. A note made its way onto prominent spot on the baby's medical chart according to the soup please no African American nurses to care for babies per day -- request. The hospital's lawyer objected to the decision and the note was removed. Then the staff told father that they could no longer honor his request according to the complaint so she still suing. Even so the lawsuit alleges for more than a month no African American nurses were signed to the care of the child so she's suing and that's -- the pretty painful. Should a parent or patient be allowed to dictate medical care based on race. I don't you know what I think the only option. That you should have I mean neonatal care. Let's say he and don't want somebody's been there a wide who's been a three or four years or somebody who is black but been a 25 years whose best. You know who's who's better at the gate and limits some 25 years don't make you the best of the gate. This somebody to be there two years who can be better than you just because they absorb information quicker or who knows what. I just want who's the best person there a wanna get out of here and especially when you're talking about neo Natal. Caron intensive care and -- -- I mean those. If you ever been like we don't fund -- is for children's hospital and they give -- -- tore the place and you go through the neonatal care unit over there. You know I mean they have machines that you total mall there about the size of a -- a car. They're all functioning to keep this baby alive that is like the size of your hand. -- -- I don't know. Bob -- opinion poll has been up and 85% of saying no. You don't want to know what you think should a parent or patient be allowed to dictate medical care based on race. 85% of saying no 15% saying yes call me up Tommy why either way to six -- -- seems to me that the hospital made a bad decision but they're also. In in almost. No win situation anyway because if they tell the guys look this is not your business. And then he goes well that Tom Lehman and taken my kid and go -- -- you're talking about and a teeny tiny baby in intensive neonatal intensive care who knows a banker to survive it. So then he shows up with a lawyer because they won't let him take this kid. And then next thing you know it's -- you know your banging things and in court. So I you know. Asked if this was a lose lose situation the very beginning. But anyway -- that will willow will take your calls across the board about this but are are pretty opinion poll. Should a parent or a patient be allowed to dictate medical care based on race should you be mean should you be able to request a certain doctor. Because that kind of falls open here too. Should you be able to request a certain doctor -- not request somebody else what is your what is your reasons behind that you know. So that's that all of that stuff is in the -- 26 so -- senate somebody that's going hospital according to the story that I got which is a CNN story. Hurley medical center in Flint. -- Hurley. Medical center. So there you go to 6786688. Banned steroids certainly is an overriding -- -- ceremony this. It is where you send -- text. And get a cup of coffee we gotta talk. Canceled -- slow weather rolling in. And Carl are not know from the F forecast sooner channel four's gonna give us the latest update on that one was going on -- -- -- I'm looking out my window here. There's like -- -- don't look that bad but it is our looks -- deceiving her anyway. Yeah all the bits and some areas getting the rain so far no severe warnings as it gets so that's good news that then again the risk was slight nod not a sure bet we were gonna see severe weather. But deadline that we talked about earlier there was from Lafayette to Baton Rouge has now shifted its extending from Franklin -- Down to I just east of Hammond. Do near Gary -- just west of law applies. And down towards parts of terror known pairs so it has shipped from earlier today it's still moving north decent -- to slowly moving east so areas in the North Shore will continue to see a few showers and thunderstorms through the next couple of hours. South lake it may be a little more later than that so it is moving east where there there's a chance they were gonna see some thunderstorms for the commute home especially. On the North Shore and maybe just west of New Orleans so there is still a chance for rain. -- not everybody wait see it right now but the front is due to the west -- still have to come our way that fronts still approaching it. Western Louisiana at this time where there's tornado watch for big chart of central and western Louisiana and how long's -- gonna going -- the tornado watches until 7 o'clock whether it's extended eastward will have to wait and see because that's in in advance of the front -- still coming our way. So we should all just like stopping get milk and eggs on the way home and just -- lump me. Yeah -- just be prepared because once this front is it's gonna stall tonight and tomorrow word stalled they may be a pretty persistent rain in some areas so. The yeah -- if you got time this afternoon and this evening when there's not much rain around. You may wanna just you know be sure -- things that is tomorrow might be more -- dated -- do some air insert a commuting around. -- -- I appreciate it we'll stay on top eleven of the gets worse give as the boats are -- -- Maradona from the child for a forecasts under the brand new fans -- -- studios. Poses a nice through -- -- All right lots of stuff in the pot here we are going to be given away a pair of tickets. To go CEO Bernadette Peters when you hear her singing everything's coming up roses be the eighth caller at the number I give you. And you will be you'll be UB one and a pair of tickets in this. There's a step up from that when a grand browser and explain it more related to six only 7866889087. -- told for a lot of lot of -- -- policy at the phones. Jane isn't home -- doing Jay thanks for parliament. I'm encouraged by our eco. All right sir thank you for calling your nurse -- says a -- That's correct I'm actually understand yet assured her and I think he can trick or -- opinion on the topic about. Then the first couple gala to take care of the patient duration because each. -- when they enter into a facility. Granted the rights and responsibilities in each week. And what are those rights or responsibilities. Or large church can occur you know I don't know. Wait wait wait wait you you of you break it up on me you need to repeat that last one of the rights and responsibilities. The right to respond to -- to carry -- interest. -- -- -- the patient don't -- to direct their care. As they huge check it out as a long list of those rights are responsible it at all at a link on the like they -- they have the right to determine each picture that. I think he restore aware. Make it a political questionable is -- the hospital. Granted their wish and also informed that Erik Erik Cole why they weren't afraid -- questioned the patient. But let me -- it -- agent orchestrate and -- -- successful in this lawsuit is gonna open the door so old lawsuit which I'm a male nurse. And when I was a nurse -- school you're required to -- and he obstetrical. Location. However we get patients. Every question you -- nursing students in the world while they delivered a great. So are you. And male doctors do. Correct yeah Barack. But that's a whole other topic. That they aren't exactly hit it is you're successful at Wall Street I think that you are all different. Settle lawsuits come about. Aqua. When I don't know about this story is that that was that happened to be the only baby in the neonatal care intensive care unit at the time I mean it and there's lots of babies in there you know so I'm I'm assuming every time I've gone to the -- children's. There's always been three or 45 or just -- you know what just don't. I don't know. I don't know. Anything can happen all the time nursing every sport every week. Patients may have had a bad experience with a certain person and they -- and -- Arctic air. That's a shirt that's a certain nurse though that and that's a specific error that somebody that they have a personal experience with -- mean if I go to the hospital on nine. And I've been with a doctor you know has -- work on me and it's like I had a bad experience an -- was all gonna work on and go on gimme my clothes on Lehman you know. Again but don't you think trick would be a good person yet there's that they -- this. Well wait I got to go to the news but this happened in Flint, Michigan -- mean somebody sent me. But text messages go on the south will rise again amber well all have to rise together world this is in Flint, Michigan but away so this I don't know. Do IRS this exact article article you read goes by all of the news and it was just be addressed and it's got a lawsuit blade up the -- -- you lose. We should take a look at BP done a great capital -- I appreciate it thank you for your call I got to go to the new associated roses and there. And I'm I'm hesitant to tell you about a storyline semi and to go to hospital for surgery. In on the doctor came in and he said well you gonna have to be categorize on Africa and in that special OK let's get it over with and they sent into women nurses. Just like where is. Is the male nurse and yet they have now -- senate so women a -- I just put the above my head and dreamed of wine and candlelight if you know what I mean it was a. All you -- being the lead on man and I -- your -- aboard anyway. Jane -- you have no pride left after some of the stuff happens and hopefully beyond human talent -- -- good stuff. That's -- that was the most tolerable thing about a whole experience. Anyway trust. And saying maybe they'll write a book -- a good -- you know now seeing images of a guy my guy on every. Yeah and FF -- -- went up and gone on their -- well. Why did not allow any males in the delivery room when my children -- yeah -- paying the bills so we make the call -- well there you go. I can -- affordable and so what -- stories to cover just about any situation I mean doesn't. We're looking at and on the surface here because in in the story that I'm quoting you there's a lot of you know though a lot of the finer details have not cut out on the surface -- don't look very pretty. But fact is that there it is this this alert this -- 125 years' experience is suing. This hospital I think you know I can't say that a hospital did the right service but according to -- though the nurse are grown and gone. You have there you have these rights and you can make these kinds of dictates. So are -- payable to -- Damir Markota should a parent -- patient be allowed to dictate medical care based on race. Us we're just gonna assume that thought if we're gonna assume that -- didn't call and we don't know whether or not the law exists and just asking the question should you be able to make those concert dictates. And -- 81% of your saying noble what do you do if you want to if if for whatever reason do you pick up your baby and go. That was my concern with the hospital to begin with like if this if we tell this -- know. Then if he takes his baby. And leaves them and in the leaving the baby dies is gonna come back and so -- where -- he wins or not who knows. You know -- he's gonna make a big -- saying we kicked them out what I hear Lou. So frankly it he started a big goal. Rolling ball that was a big Blue's Clues across the board -- I don't even -- has baby came up and I mean a neonatal. A baby in neonatal intensive care you want. You want the best people there who cares about any and everything else was -- back to France tennis and Algiers but say they're campaign on. I don't they have I I guess Kerry emerged saying or airline and -- not oh I -- -- and accomplished deal on doubt I'll put. -- -- -- -- I made to appear hospital months later they rebuilt a bullet and go up and they get. I -- them I said Leo what infuriates it will we had put a couple cadaver bone in your foot -- that it replaced get -- -- bone. Today have a Molly asked the dead man's -- targets it. -- -- I I is Betty I hate it you know I. It should be sorry. Gimme a break. A good question that would soon. Is why why a cadaver bone overrun.

To Europe as a as an ambassador and on how to be more stuff but you know what he's doing this is -- They're rattling off account. There rattling off account the tickets like ten bucks a pop since why don't. And end this -- the cal raffle and if you go to FaceBook FaceBook search the count raffle you can find it or you can email. Ward dot Scott at gmail.com ward W they already warned dot Scott at gmail.com to find out more about it.

I -- tickets to deflect all clear out a big area in my shed and put a chest freezer open input 400 pounds of beef and you can link. Don't take me almost two weeks beat them much because. Anyway so that you know that's this an original thought somebody is trying to to raise money to go to Europe. You know good to be an ambassador so I'll I'll plug that again it's pretty cool deal to six only seven is the number was about your phone calls. Jermaine. And Guerrero later Jermaine thanks for -- -- Libya. Eagles almost. You know socialist attitude of most ridiculous story for her. Although I've heard some real stupid -- -- and he doesn't know. These -- disposed of from the -- I mean absolutely equal to a hospital. Do -- obviously true change your life for help you -- some kind of missile failed just that you had. Know what the people who work in the hospital. If -- -- qualified to -- you can they would be repeated. So don't know what it is futile one shopped at the most emotional or -- or that you -- or old are your kids should look at. What are each pool -- your grips -- -- storm that's fine. No -- special promotional pressure but it looks good to what you're until August safety and -- addiction problem but now. If you put your child in British. I think she can actually get involved -- ultimately -- because well there's currently does not think in the -- the child they're only thinking about the shuttle's. A looking at a -- will want to benched for the child. You would think that but I don't know. Maybe they think that somebody you know their own prejudice -- is -- prevent them from seeing. People do but if this guy feels that way it more than Tony peanut butter brown. I mean you know -- Washington carver was a black Manning and he's the one who -- all these different ways he -- -- peanuts or give up good give up Europe. Give up your Jeff you know what I mean okay. So maybe you should give workers -- to you shouldn't worry about the stoplight operation of the unification match. I mean you know go on the. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But let me ask you this suppose he's in a public hospital and you and -- -- footing the bill I mean if he's foot the bill and his private insurance that's their argument. But if you and I -- foot the bill in a private hospital. Should he have that kind of dictate. He shouldn't have their kind of dictate whether she's -- appeal not pain until I mean no work there comes a time what you just some. Ignorant being churches that the put aside from the people has been believed. In them all heard about the -- about the child forward obviously in the much. The next 400 people -- on the put in the work even if you do believe Specter does come a point and time when you really have to treat everything that's ignorant and do not want to change. At the the south shall arise I think you miss undertook a understood detects the guy who sent a text that the south shall rise but but after it pushes all this stuff aside. The thing of it is this took place in Flint, Michigan. -- -- Understand diplomacy and optional if you catch what you can't chain him on -- -- that you got from the south. You had in the north they're pretty extreme. Heat and pitched. I wanna supply hooked. Oh yeah and there's essentially saying we expect with the Internet now because those -- just electric ship in the Sumpter South Carolina. And talk to someone who's written a New York, New York can cancel the trip -- train police somewhere in different regions of the country. Don't we have the same level of stupidity so I mean you don't want to come -- term and you just have to -- Mr. Padilla dwindled as congress idiot you know what should call Child Protective Services on impact and how much like bed and the nations in the blank into actual results. -- Not bitter and often origin. And but no they ominously about all of this is that I got to go to traffic but don't they don't say is that I don't. Those new stories haven't released a lot of details okay on the surface it certainly looks like this. It it it does seem pretty silly to me especially 125. Years of experience in the hospital -- My feel of it is the hospital get there they caught but they require by law like one of -- lawyers said. To provide the services regardless and so they're they're caught between a rock and a hard place because now they're doing what the -- told him to do. As somebody suing him for don't get out. Days ago I mean who is if he's if he's entitled by law to make these kinds of choices. And so they acquiesced to that and then the nurse who gets pushed aside and insulted. She brings suit against them too. Whether or not she wins or loses still pay a lawyer to go to court of the -- -- this kind of stuff out so maybe this will be like the last time it goes to court and go. Here is the rules. You don't like him. You know pick up your ball and go home. Jermaine -- appreciate the call man thanks for grown in 26 Boeing seven as I want you transform them back kimonos.
