Damn this is without a doubt know if fans -- books this is a golden rule issue would you want somebody to do that to you then don't do that to them. Simple as -- There it is but while we're talking about Internet that's now and video -- doing stuff these two guys. This is another article that we have on our own.

Cops assay to Louisiana men admit to sexually abusing their dog and that's special. Took videos of a Siberian Husky named -- of the humane society. Director Jeff doors and who we've had on this program before and David Blake was interviewing him for this for this news story. At a detailed. A detailed tip to be six state police sex crimes unit allowed troopers to make the -- within a couple of hours. When they got to residents the men admitted -- To abusing the dog out you know you can go online and read the story you don't want that there was a situation like that in my neighborhood. And -- and a nice neighborhood nice stuff bad stuff happens in nice neighborhoods like this kind of stuff. Same thing happened not only did the guy do that to a dog. Posted videos but post the videos on an animal welfare site -- an animal rescue site so. Guess what the cyber world can be a scary an ugly place to go to. They're talking about maybe they can have the dog adopted a -- to read the story it'll tell you that you know the dog is now scared of men. There's a lady on veterinarian dealing with the dog trying to help put to. Reintroduce itself you know to all people. And it not be so scared for the of this darkness is shies away from men now because gee I wonder why. The thing that happened in my neighborhood they added. They took an exam -- they they examine this dog and nothing was really wrong with a physically but that's not what happened to the dog in my neighborhood and so. Guess what. Anyway and when this things you can read later in the story. Usually these poor creatures are shuffled from one deviant to another just outside the reach of -- and law enforcement so basically somebody takes their pitches and get -- -- dog and gives it to another uncle Kirby. Down the road. So -- just to show you exactly how scary and unsafe the Internet can be I mean it's it's like anything else it's a fabulous tool. That can be completely abused. Completely abused. And the thing about this is once it's up there you're never gonna get relevant bit it'll it'll turn out someplace you might put stuff up in that oval take the website down of the we'll take the of the FaceBook picture down if one person had one chance there to retreats to vote to copy it. They consented all over the world again. You know so. When it did this whole thing when our first story here first our first our power. This is the perfect example of the golden rule because any thing you'd do to somebody else can be done to you. So. There you go right to six only 786688. Irons early setting is are told from the get back to our own. Our regular topic here all right where -- topic number two here's our number two -- -- -- -- begin selling you a mile an open -- tell me what you think there. And he has been for the last fifteen years. Because he is -- the was the mastermind referring behind the first World Trade Center bombing. He was a man who who planned the bombing he also that when -- and this is this the one where the -- trucks. Full of explosives. Down in the basement. Of the World Trade Center and it didn't obviously didn't collapse of building but it caused a lot of damage or kill six people and injured over a thousand. He was convicted of that he was also convicted of plotting to kill. President Clinton he was he was convicted of plotting to kill John Paul the second and he was plotted and he was convicted of plotting to blow up several planes. He is the nephew. Of Khalid Sheikh Mohamed. And he'd. Is a student of the -- his name well it's the blind sheik who was also convicted of of being behind that. He has been a solitary confinement in the in the that some maximum security prison in the Rockies. The last fifteen years since -- 1995. And he is now suing to get out of there saying that he is. He is but he is receiving. Psychological trauma. He says I request an immediate into my solitary confinement and asked to be in a unit in an open prison environment where inmates are allowed outside their cells. For no less than fourteen hours today. And he he wrote this and a confidential government rector record broad it was obtained by -- Los Angeles Times and habits there yet here it is. I've been a solitary confinement in the US since February of 1995 with no end in sight I further asked not to be in handcuffs and leg irons when moved outside myself. He reportedly claims in his -- -- his due process under the laws being violated. Because he has no chance to get out of solitary confinement despite fifteen years of good behavior imprisoned. He's suing saying his time a solitary has led to severe psychological trauma. So again he was convicted of masterminding. The February 1993 bombing. Of the World Trade Center which killed six and injured more than a thousand convicted of trying to kill Pope John Paul the second and President Clinton and convicted of plotting to bomb airplanes. Should he get out should we have the compassion to let him out into the regular population or she's serving a proper sentence for what he did. And what he's still capable of doing. Should he be in solitary confinement -- away from all. Contact I mean he is he was sentenced to life without the possibility of probation or parole. Plus 240 years. So does that mean he's just number never gonna get out of jail or does that mean he's needs to be removed from society completely so that he cannot. Maintain any contact -- anybody on the outside world considering what he was convicted of doing. The six people he killed the over thousand that he injured and all the rest that he plotted and that's just what he was convicted of I mean I I think. He probably. Did a lot more than that otherwise I don't think the al-Qaeda operatives. Our leadership of that organization. Would have been trusted him -- masterminding the bombing to begin with. So that's just what is convicted of so who knows what all these dark. He is suing now to get out of solitary he's never gonna get out of jail policy breaks out. Life it would life in prison without problem without possibility of probation or parole plus 240 years. So was that enough and should we let them out bodes well solitary or should be asked again and another fifteen years if you can get out of solitary. Those things are a pot your calls on bush probably seven to get a cup of coffee we go to. I will be giving away two tickets to go see Bernadette Peters.

As somebody did kill him what he -- martyr status and is that something men who knows maybe that's what he's so open what happened to him. You know I I think you're right there I think it's you know.

Was going to be examining everybody else -- -- -- seven is our number 866 innings and steroids feminine elements of text messages to an 8787. And I'll read a whole bunch of empty whom. Always have people been hanging on the phone. And also the other thing and upon us talking about this story we had about relationships and people. Texting or not texting but posting online embarrassing photos of somebody -- broken up with. Are pretty opinion polls asking about that have you been in a relationship. And took animate photos and now regret it 93% of you saying no. So that means either you didn't take any pictures or you don't regret it but this would you regret it if somebody posted those pictures without your consent online. That's all and -- us about the phone calls Jason's in New Orleans they don't know what -- Jason thanks for karma. -- right mandate based audio out but a lot of a lot of that -- show a college or make a comment on the just Collins said that letting had a population. I'm. He mark they have not had no clue about what the president to commit nowadays there's. Not angle in the 1970s and worked in the presence there and pull out and it's a joke you know it's a baby example criminals you -- whom you know. Actually they have more right in the guards do you know so and it is not right. Than not he's not gonna be killed you know Leo. It'll be enough -- No idea he is in the we all you know like when fans that he went to jail -- -- -- club fed you know he he's a -- he isn't that maximum security prison up in the Rockies camping event name to call it. But it you know but yeah it's these it's this is. I'm assuming that it's rougher than other places but I have I'll tell you my experience -- prison. I shot two movies and Angola I I got to I was in scenes that had conversations and even in some out of the camps of the trustees'. But that's my prison expert I've been at death row and I've been -- death house and I've been on on on the grounds of Angola and that's it that's -- -- -- I worked I worked at -- angle on the volcano -- dog did get prolong. The debt robot. I know. Any kind of budget inmates said you know back in seventy dead asleep with a home folks think it'd just because somebody -- Batman like they have guards and don't. And even though both abilities I think I would not trained at a federal facility trying to get over it federal facility which. Inmates at right now and it's it's basically the same thing it's not it's not killing going on like he used to be you know because like you said they. During the custody at -- -- -- that and so on the net and we could so you know. But so has -- the lawsuit says that there's an article in the last couple days about somebody -- PP. And I know that the different stories C a parish prison I would say that's more dangerous than any. Correctional facility like Angola are these these are content Aurora just ideal seat facility at something like that. They have guard then you know they know to do now parish president. No I don't think it'll make nothing they're not gonna get involved and I got unbreakable fight between the domino like that they don't care did you data get a paycheck you know by the. Solid food security and they -- Yosef to the studio -- Should they send this guy Yousef took -- OPP let him out of solitary set moto PP how long would you -- there. Hollywood national -- the they wouldn't last long. Bad -- now he plot he plotted and killed six people when that explosion. You know right okay. Israel. 88 -- -- yet yeah when an explosion you know how many people -- -- you know. Ocala just like the rest of Omar you know -- as you noted they basically challenge you know. -- does not feel about it. -- they killed and -- out and I got how much and so letting it he is he is actually receiving. The punishment he deserves by staying in solitary. Because if they let him out into the regular population is going to be Wallace Breslow pick up a fifteen years of solitary you let me on a regular prison population is going to be like Disney World. Yeah yeah absolutely right you know I had to bring him god that doesn't sound very accommodating both. From the date someday get it it would it would they get maybe twenty minutes -- day and instead it. And that's if they want to break the mark and bring them out you know they don't -- note found in the sale all day long they don't didn't you know they don't need to to open nobody. So I mean it's it's stopped you know I'm not that they want a bunch of them guys that don't that was on death row for 1617. Years when they've been lucky that I'm -- on the border switch right now you know why -- guys that -- just signed the papers that give them advocate copy you know it just broke people they don't want the debt -- you know don't want to death penalty. And based sun that lights up the road just give me out of this place I want to do economists are Derek -- but instead the right -- data being -- bullets which owning -- right weight and some of. All right so now UK nine -- -- a federal prism of the Indies. And somebody semi attacks the super Max prison is what they call -- is this -- -- The band so the bad that nobody absolutely has any chance again to him if he gets out in a regular prison population. I'm assuming. You know what I should've called chick and so what kind of access to a lawyer does he have refused to be at the -- life no parole. And Tony it's 240 years he's never gonna get out of jail kind of access to a he should still have access to returning to. Yet he always says expense towards -- he gets and that's the one thing you always have access to you'll get it all go out to the attorneys. You know he got the one thing he will do they cannot monitors all called to an attorney that -- discrete. -- letters it is legal you know it's signed -- -- data compiled aren't and it's. -- the Gloria you know he would sit -- but nobody can now list I mean I'm sure they could there's still a phone call but they're not supposed to do but yet he always had access to allow library and a lawyer. If you're an -- you know that's the one thing you. They absolutely. -- -- if he were to win and I got to step away here if he were to win his suit. And be taken out of solitary. Al-Qaeda well he certainly but anybody who was a follower of his would consider that a victory and then one more nail in the coffin of America -- That an army army doesn't that open notes but you know -- anybody else in America -- the policy saying it didn't sound very good bumps along with just a life sentence you know -- to the death penalty -- You know. Clean -- doubt they don't eat out. You know make me look you know take it away -- -- because you repeat in -- that killed people you repeat don't barbecue chicken -- deported July you know. You take away his problem program dedicated -- from argued for a feature which you repeat these dudes barbecuing odd given watermelon and have barbecues form at the present but you don't want have had some programs can you need to get their priorities. -- potato salad though just a big old known all that stuff. I'll take out a statement about all about because that's what's killing me man -- this head start program why they take initial weight from. It's it's a test -- Well you know what that's a different show but I'll tell you this what. Maybe what we need to do is is is and I guess they're doing it because they're taking that out that there's a lot of things that are taken out. What do they have a priority I'm not talked about this when John Kennedy -- or should there be a priority funding priority and go. Here's one here's two here's three years four and just literally list them all way down the row. And what they are and then when you run out of money if you run out of money and number 97 well 98 guess what you're screwed now by our money 98 gets money but you just. I agree which you -- larger percent by the. But then you got to sit out -- -- and and how you gonna get your thing up inside I would venture to say the top fifty certainly won't get funded so how do you get your. Priority inside the top fifty that's what the argument nobody. Yeah absolutely right you're absolutely right I think it we dot com which you don't many great. Thank you so much and it's very kind of you to six only seventy a subway comeback would more on the -- 87 -- impetus. -- we're back with the -- seven. Number no -- that I am given away cheap tickets to hear Bernadette Peters. By the by -- and higher performing. What the reports so we'll. -- say we're performing in the big person's Mo what I that's the special. Benefit performance for the magnolia school. This is Saturday marks the second.

So bunches of stuff going on lots and and there's lots of great stuff going on out there I mean there but what are you -- streetcar named desire is opening tonight. At the out. At the value Playhouse the -- repertory -- it's got a great stuff going on I think Lou what you call -- The almighty is who is running through this weekend too so lots of stuff going on aren't. 260 honey Sony whole bunch of stuff and policy back to your phone calls here. Ronnie is next up are you don't runny or WWR. -- don't find -- thank you for congress but yes it is. There's are a good order so much does that work during grand. Well I'll leave that vote. All those dollars can't also on ticket you know let -- go on and only cure all mental executed. All donors call the government taxpayer money -- -- -- alive and you name and opening them and expected -- all big -- Golden Globe trekking Google. Well then you go. Wherever veterans turn their input and a welfare groups in order or. I don't know what that exterminating well I don't care about him being a mortar careless. The only thing as it made for him personally I mean somebody's going. -- his attacks after fifteen years he's ready to pay for his crime he knows the percentage of his surviving -- that I would the president with the other prisons the fact of the matter is. You know somebody else and attacks talking about parents. What does he feel about the the people that he killed. And the people that he heard and all he's so narcissistic he doesn't care and and and going out as a martyr. It is just that must pushing farther down his -- I think the dog. The worst punishment that we can give them is to literally leave him where he is it just never let him out period never. I mean when was the last time even heard of this guy out and in this story you know. Really I agree look it's just he's caused the most money you know. Afflicted so -- those -- the probably the pumping having done productive would amber and -- more perilous. On the news they exterminate like. Well but the thing of it is I could care less about him to accept. In in his martyrdom he will spawn others and here's another text for every drone strike 100 more terrorists are created I don't know about that. Those who are the whole thing is you -- people when you have fear like that Oprah is something like that happen you know normally not a you give -- if you showed no fear and with the -- of something like that happen in something like that does happen. Have them to have the same banks culminate belt and load up -- best political slump in my post. Room maybe I saw it up next generation -- Obama. Well they'd certainly consider us that that's the truth I mean well running I appreciate your comments thanks for the call 26 thorn examining you know I mean who doesn't consider that put. -- I don't know I think putting them in. I'm sure he has received psychological trauma I can't imagine spent in solitary confinement fifteen years in solitary. You know mostly got a couple of good books -- I don't know we'll find out more though we do have to step away because. That's -- step away time but will be back more and more in the next hour. It is the Friday before the Oscars. And though we'll take your calls and -- who do you think's gonna win. What do you think should -- won. What do you think should -- nominated but didn't all of that they won an -- do you watch the Oscars the go switch back and forth between the Walken dead. 26 -- seven is a number back from the sports Europe and us. -- -- solitary confinement as you know runs I. You know should condemn what you did. Should I got caught doing what she did and now you're paying the price for. And I think really -- for true Alabama -- -- that's he's as if he gets out it's a complete win win for him. It's a complete win win he did just he either gets out and goes into solitary. And he has better access to whoever tomorrow plot and plan and or when I'm out of those is but super Max is. Getting him out of there would be almost. Anything's possible with the probability of like negative 5%. But it's and but if he gets let out there and somebody wax and guess what he's a martyr he's never going to be a martyr in solitary because I don't you know. He's just never gonna. So for him getting out of getting out of solitary confinement is is a win win situation. -- -- led amount that the president's companies a martyr who led a mound and he lives amongst you know I'm a more comfortable life with. With other people they can strike up partnerships -- dealings with just just -- have a conversation with somebody else after fifteen years in solitary. Am sure he wants to just have a daily conversation with folks well no you don't get that there's a six dead people who never got a conversation either. There's over a thousand people got hurt because of your actions so now you're going to get that you're you're you're serving the the absolute correct punishment should stay there and continue to serve ask again and another fifteen years. All right next hour it's the last hour and a week and and Oscar's are coming up Sunday night so we'll take your calls and comments. About the Oscars and who do you think's gonna win and who do you think should a guy I mean Argo.
