So rich -- what's the first thing that goes through your mind when you get pulled over by a police officer. Limit ourselves by. Being an American man -- think about what the police ordeal that I hope -- all this Google. Now do you feel any different if that's a black police officer. Actually go. Out there I mean the majority. Of the you know could -- and -- It completely but yeah. And -- and an account with some black. -- -- believe it will. And on the final leg quarters but is because they interpret -- at it like it the old war. Shortly be like -- steady you know. They Leo we know the site. No. Idea. What it. Cynical always. Think that been co. Op that -- man and that there. Lol its grip on the world and believe. -- -- The flexible. You'll. In and like any hole that may. The excuse to black community -- with apple but you know it. The police went. Well maybe maybe. Maybe you -- -- the beginning because what I said as I can only imagine if you've gone through years -- years of this. All all I'm trying to tell you one of the things I've I've really wanna do you know the president said a couple of days ago. That if we're -- change things we have to talk to each other. And not argue with with each other all I can tell you is the fact that -- I don't know. What you'd have been through for years and years and years but I can tell yet if I did stop. By a black police officer. My anxiety level really builds up because I've I've had one bad experience with one. To where I mean they treated me with with no respect and the last thing I was about the study is. Pay you know why am I figured he would say yes. But so you know I guess all I'm trying to say is that do we have a as as a white guide to have a through the degree that you have absolutely not. But I can kind of understand because if if I get pulled over by a white up. I feel a little more comfortable collected pulled over by a black cup there many times I've he's I'm thinking to myself. He's only pulling me over the took them lightly mostly get even. I can understand you -- pop can I illustrate something out real quick -- He's still no go ahead.

Part of that -- PD preached it to get. Somehow they bring him in a lot. Well I'm I'm doing my absolute best to keep my ears open and trying to understand and and I really understand your point I guess the only things that that I want you to know. It is. I feel. Anxiety when I get pulled over and that's a black police officer what happens is that. Is that white people start thinking what you know because for so many years. We are we have treated the black people badly then you start thinking well they're gonna try to give us back. Lot of respect there. -- It's -- -- progress. Until we. Things -- black and white which oh and didn't see -- You know. Why people don't talk about the bit because they want it -- -- to. We know you're right listen I grew up. In the fifties late fifties and my dad was a big -- absolute bigger than me and the you know he tried to raise me that way but once. Once I got into radio and I left home to -- and really when I was seventeen years old and I've got in the world and I realized that the color. Of a person's skin has Newton has nothing to do. With anything and you know a look at our conversation we started off a little bit.

That goes through your mind and have you had more good or bad experiences with police officers and the as the race. Of the police officer affect your level. On and slide the league read a couple of technology really quick like -- is not matter. That it is done but a level of anxiety but it does go up as a black man. Bursting I think of and I get pulled over by the cops I'm thinking I should tell them I'm Carrie and Mike can still fire me you now. I think that's a good idea let's go to today look at this it's June oh in Chicago how are you Joseph. I'm glad about are you tonight. -- salute great. I think it's going to be a good show tonight to just about everyone has a story to tell about the -- So hard when you're told over what's the first thing that -- that goes through your mind. First thing is to stay calm. And that he's my hand plain sight. And then. My concern is the that the officer. -- officer approaches because. If the officer approaches are with a nice calm attitude. I'm not afraid of yet -- -- in the car with an attitude. I. So have you have you example an officer approached her car these sounds like you've been pulled over quite a few times Joseph. I'll cook I don't I have -- your fingers leftover. -- -- Hearsay and there's this this in this so even you had a couple times where you've had officers and a bad give you a bad attitude. I have I have a one you know the one that comes to mind most were scary situation. You know -- start up time. And it went from good bad and two horrible. You know and in a matter of minutes yeah. You know I was you know the options that I ran a red light which aren't that I didn't. And he wrote me a ticket any sign the ticket and -- that they it. And these -- a satellite equipment your signature. I'm like yeah it's my signature. And he's like well it doesn't natural light and you know. I'd like -- on your license and I might note that my signature of the internal licenses three years eleven. Signed up like that and agree you know two years that might signature. And we got into a little bit of a couple on that and it appears -- back of the car want my fingerprint on the ticket. And I'd like excuse me he's like I -- I -- I don't want to ensure that the courts saying that -- your signature. I said well I'm not giving you fingerprints for a traffic violation especially when that I couldn't match. And EE. He probably car and I said you know don't be ridiculous. Joseph usually able to banners. That. Trying to beat out big attic fire and I in the ridiculous. And he actually put -- -- and I'm -- on his -- And he said get out of the car at that point that shaken what did you card that. All the gas in the car at that point and eagle eagle. The -- which -- yeah and the economic spec and they get flopped down on the there are angry at that point. But I get the opposite realized he got a little too far instead of stopping me that the car. He slapped the ticket on the car. You went right on top of that he -- that sign although that's why I like. It. Did you do it then -- so if you would have signed it. That way in the beginning you would -- avoided all that that's what this officer. Who has the -- the LAPD for seventeen years and he's a professor of Homeland Security at Colorado. Tech he says. If you want to avoid those things that you don't want to get shot -- pepper sprayed its struck golf -- who -- just do what I tell you to do. So what do you just. Do -- tell you do. I don't know who's in the years ago. But I will -- in this. You know probably the OE eight 810 years later. I'm on Sunset Boulevard in California. And I got -- -- And that because I was in California getting old York. I turned on the light in the rent the car but both at but the window -- the book my hands on the steered real so that. When the police officer approached the car there was nothing that couldn't be seen and that I. Know we might. And you get a ticket. Knowing. That. The joke. Got it in Chicago. How the piles and you guys are really known for state -- the price of beef. Well you know I've been out of town for a couple weeks it and let them into the grocery store. But that I was at. Have you noticed the girl -- the price the price of beat now. Is at an all time high ground beef is that all time -- like about 388 a problem and have you noticed that how. How expensive -- the food is getting in I'm just wondered are you eating less -- these days may be eating more chicken. They're needing more chicken more rich. You know because they -- that would wreck earlier this. -- -- and I'm I'm I'm getting to a point here because out on though you called in from time -- time. And now since I have your phone number I'm going to be coming to a Chicago. Cannot call you when you by mistake. I'll I'll buy -- sweepstakes. Unity bring it to bring your -- a -- a couple of stakes so. Will that sounds good all right Joseph thank you so much -- I probably -- get. I'm gonna do that are right let's let's go to big.
