Substantially needed changes and we are raised with a quote on the New York Times. Secondly the department of justice and it said the department of police has been troubled organizations in decades -- state their case. Because the civil right in between 1996 and 2004 investigated -- department. In march of 2004 game that was department clean bill help because the department made changes they wanted and the department we want it is no question app. There's some 2000 for the department got in trouble again so it's an overstatement. To say decades the -- -- -- -- that in.

Nobody needed palace we needed change -- so you know actors with the job's not done but it certainly -- when -- If if you're correct India and Justice Department to -- that something patently untrue. Should we trust the Justice Department when it comes to the consent degree. I think we'll have a look at the difference between -- statements with an intent to be published in documents that are with the Indy consent decree negotiations that took a year and a result. The documents in the work inside the consent decree negotiations up and went very well two parties argued on points of differences and came to a conclusion. But really here's what we all know that in March 30 2004. The department just wrote a letter. Big finish in its investigation of eight years with no -- no consent decreasing it just really can't say it's been decades. There had been problems spots and -- is critical question about that.

Your quarters saying I absolutely think two decree in the long run is what the department is going to eat. I think is what competition is taken over several different context the simple truth is this. If we have a history since may of 2010 is that we work towards consent -- things change. I'm up property owner in the war -- York property owners and -- and I know that I want the mayor won't be fighting from me as a property. And I think that's what he's trying to do not support that. Separate and apart from that we didn't have the issue police department and sheriff's office and all of those competing interest so I. Absolutely property don't want him to bite my property taxes are also about which department sheriff's office. -- the chargers ritual profile. Racial profile is one of the most.

I would also that we need to look deeper our disagreements with mr. watchable limited however we have a lot of work and beat some -- Our own people but there is an example. One of the things we know and that is as simple truth garlands and act like that is that true. Over the last two years. Anybody would have been the most violent crime in the world that does not include guns and drugs -- just -- the victim. Seven and those victims were African American residents of war. And and they describe their perpetrators of African American man. That is nothing more than -- important information to understand the context of victimization and our community that has not yet. Police officer right profile that the activity police officer right not to be looking for specific views were behavior. And that's what we try to. That's what we trying to. Got about a minute a -- -- -- -- forty years. Of this conversation with -- every police shoot that's been a police chief. I've heard the same issues over and over again.

Change in the workforce and in our offices are becoming more educated they're becoming more committed and -- we see that with the Generation X. Y. It is changing laws that require police conduct with a without consent decree of becoming tighter. I think that there's no question that there's going to be terrible act. Accidents that happen in our community that we have to be there to help the people would call those don't forget we make nearly half a million house call the year because people call -- and say. A lot of things you don't know what they call a lot about over 30000 times. At the time my neighborhood don't recognize that he's making me afraid. At least on the and of course that's what we do.
