Retired law enforcement, officer security, expert and award winning storyteller. Paul Merrick, along with his cohost, Jesse Clay, former Navy seal, and four time heavyweight committee, world champion together. We'll discuss the broad array of current events using their unique backgrounds to further dissect each story. The only question you have to ask yourself is, are you ready to roll? I don't know, but I've been told that these two guys are really old. I hear their views are very bold, but they believe the truth will hold. So sit right back and enjoy the show because these two guys are ready to roll sound off wound to sound off three, four sound off long two, three, four. Let's roll. Okay. We're live. Hey, Jesse, how are you doing? Hey, Paul, what's going on, buddy? I really wish we had a, one of our, I was going to say alcoholic friends, but I mean, one of our friends that are experts in alcohol right now, so they can supply us with something the way, the way the last few days are going again, you just think, Oh, maybe it's going to start to lighten up and things are gonna get a little bit better. And I actually think if you don't watch the news. They probably are a probably will, but boy, you turn on the news and they've got you pretty much convinced that the world's coming to an end. It's just great. Yeah, it is what it is. You know, this is kind of one of those gigs right now where it's easier to go. What is me or chicken little thing. And the sky is falling than it is to stop, take a look at reality and, and totally understand what's happening. I was talking to a young lady in. I think based in Birmingham earlier today and just a business issue. And I think, I think you're absolutely right. Um, and talking to her, I said, uh, so how's your day going? And she says great, because I think 90% of the people where she works actually working from home. Now they can do that as long as they have a computer and a telephone. And she goes, well, it's going well, could spend more time with the family. Um, she goes, it is unusual. She goes, and she said the same thing. If you turn on the TV, they'll have you convinced that, you know, like you said, the sky is falling and it's really not. She goes, people turned off the TV and just deal with each other individually. She goes, I think everything would be just fine. And it made me feel good, you know, made me feel good because I'm not the only one that thinks that we're not the only people that think that, but I'll tell you what the, some things just don't make any sense at all. So like for example, And I know there's going to be different thoughts on this, but the two, I know the husband's an attorney. I don't think the wife is in st. Louis who pointed the guns at the protesters after they came onto the private property dispute about when that gate got broken. So we'll leave that to go. But they did know that entering an area that had been blocked off. So that was pretty obvious, I think trespasses signs and things on it. So they pointed their guns, told him to keep off the property. They. As they said, we're afraid for themselves for the property. And evidently they call it the castle law in Missouri. And that allows pretty liberally, um, anyone to protect themselves and their property or their family, however they deem necessary, you know, and that means up into, you know, lethal, uh, lethal use of force. So yeah. They didn't shoot anybody, but I guess a couple of days ago, uh, the local district attorney, uh, was able to obtain a warrant to thus far, uh, take the weapons they were using. And we'll see what happens, but the word along the line is now that they're going to be indicted on what I have no idea because private property on our own place. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's just, it seems so upside down. Here's the funny thing. So evidently the only reason. Well, the main reason that the protestors were on their private property is because the mayor did not want the protesters getting to her house. So she had the police put up roadblocks, so they couldn't get through the roadblocks. So they had to go through these, the husband and wives, private property to get to the mayor's house, to protest her. And I guess she's been vandalized before, whatever. But when the people called and say, Hey, there's people on my property, I need help. The police didn't go there. So I guess there's a priority. If you're the mayor, you can get whoever you want to protect you. But if you're a private citizen and the police don't come and you're trying to protect yourself, you might get in trouble. So I don't know. That seems to be a little bit of a one way street. The other funny thing about the mayor. Well, come on. It's the have and have nots. Yes. He who has the golden rule. He who has the gold makes the rules. So if, if the mayor is deemed more important as, as elected official, that's who they're going to protect now, I find it highly. I'm curious why law enforcement wasn't a whole long, the whole route. Yeah, so, and why they didn't respond. I am too. And the thing is, people need to understand about law enforcement, just like, like with the military, you're given orders, you follow your orders. I mean, you have certain leeway in certain areas, but for the most part, you're just, you're given an assignment and this is what you have to go do. Yeah. But if you get a call and you're supposed to go to the call, Well, that's true. But in, in police work, you gotta call dispatch and then dispatch has to dispatch you there. And if they're not doing that from headquarters, you're never going to know that it even happened. So we, I don't know if that was even if it ever got that far, you know, they may, they may had a rule. We just going to let them be, we don't want to cause any more trouble, but I'm the mayor. Make sure you protect me. And they still got to her house anyway. They'd vandalized it before. So yeah. Well that's true. I mean, why aren't these people in jail? Yeah. I mean, if you, if you vandalize something, you go to court. You get, you accept your punishment and you go to jail. The funny thing about that, and not really funny, you kind of said, I guess there were about 35 individuals that when the protest first started, there were looting and in battle Lising and they got arrested that same district attorney who's now come and taken the weapons of those two homeowners and. Evidently it's supposed to file, uh, for, uh, an indictment has released all those other people without filing any charges on them at all. So mean like what they did in Denver. Yes, exactly the same thing here. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So I think here is, you know, if we talk about, you know, fairness, then it's. It's easy to apply that in the law, it's called the rule of law. It means that nobody's above the law and nobody's below the law and everybody should be treated the same way. And I know people are not always treated the same way I get that. That's why we have some of these people peaceful protest, because that may not be the case. That doesn't mean that two wrongs make a right. It doesn't mean that all of a sudden, you just say, okay, well, since you were protesting for this and you were committing crimes, not the protesters, but the writers. That's okay, because of why you were doing it. That, that, isn't how you need to distinguish both lines, because there are people who are doing peaceful protest and people got stupid. They left now once the people who are doing peaceful, protesting, stopped and left, whoever left. So who, again, And their whole goal is to cause disruption. Yes, exactly. Exactly. Yes. So, um, I guess the best thing to say it was I'm mixed crowd. There was every color there. Yes. The hooligans. Yes, absolutely. Absolutely. You know, and a lot of them March, maybe of BLM and the beginning. Right. But it ends up being a hooligan thing at the end. Right. So I know that's just seems to me like what happened out there is a little bit upside down, but, um, so I'm going to run a few, a few phrases or names by you words I should say. And then, uh, you tell me if, you know, I had a really look this up and do a lot of research to figure out what everybody was talking about. I'm still doesn't make any sense, but evidently you can't use the term where you're not supposed to use the term cakewalk anymore. Why not it's like, so I always understood it to be that, you know, cakewalk, it was just an easy job or, you know, it was easy to get through or, you know, it's like, Oh, I had this workout, like you're training some of your fighters. And one of them says that's a cakewalk, which would be mistake. Cause I know then you'll can make them do like 5 million pull ups or something. But that's how I understood what that meant. Evidently. It started. So evidently it's a racist term, according to a professor in, uh, in, uh, uh, Philadelphia with, I think it's Lafayette university. This at assistant professor, Angela Bell says that's racist because back during, um, the time of slavery, I found this very interesting, the, the slaves. Used to try to imitate the white owners dancing because they didn't think they knew how to dance very well. So they would imitate them. They were mocking their dance ability. So, wow. How many, how much of this stuff are people going to pull out of their ass? Totally. Are you kidding me? It's like the black national Anthem. I have literally asked over a hundred black friends. Right. If they, if they've ever heard it. Right. Do you know how many had no, two, two out of the 102 out of the a hundred? Well, isn't that like? I mean, That's just becoming, you want everything separate? You're trying to be divisive. I thought it was supposed to be everybody get together. I mean, so shouldn't whatever Anthem should it be for everybody? I mean, that's how I thought we had was called the national Anthem. I thought, I thought so too, but maybe I'm getting old, man. I'm getting forgetful. Maybe I, you know, what's my middle name. I don't know. Here's here's the deal. I mean, we're going to call it whatever we're gonna call it for whatever we're going to call it. Right. But the truth of the matter is. Yes. We have some issues, right? Can we fix them? Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. Do we have to acknowledge they exist? Yes. So why, why are people asking for 40 acres and a mule when EY suffered? None of the, none of the, none of the cruelties back over a hundred years ago. I agree. Well, you know what? That's a really good point, because guess what I found out today, evidently I looked back in history. There's a thing called don't laugh too hard. A phobia there, the fear of slaves, which would be me. Because supposedly during world war two, that was a, a word that was brought up because the Nazis didn't like the slabs, because they didn't want to be part of the Nazi regime. So you were a, we were thought of as less than human, you know, all the typical things, whoever is in charge and wants to be mean to somebody says, that's what they used to say about us. Didn't the Irish go to the same thing. When they came here, didn't the Japanese go to interment camps. Didn't the Italians go through the same gig. Everybody who was a conquered people or an immigrant went through the same deal. You know, you can't, you can't here. You are. I'm going to use these people. Cause I have. Jesus sounds so racist. I guess I have friends who are Vietnamese. Okay. Who, who did you, whose parents and families survived Vietnam from South Vietnam, from South Vietnam. They came over here and this listening to the stories they tell are incredible, but they came over here with nothing. Not saying they were never promised 40 mill or 40 acres in a mule. They weren't promised anything. And guess what they did. They live in tight knit communities. They study, they save their money, they do what they have to, and they succeed. Why? I think it's something called the American dream and anybody can do it anywhere. If you just want to try, you can do it. I mean you can't, I mean, guaranteed. I mean, sometimes there's a little bit of luck, but at least you have it, the ability to try, you know? No. So I guess, and I see this when they're pushing more and more, it becomes more obvious to me. Like it started out as, as one thing, but it's leaning more towards, well, we don't like our form of government. I mean, if you look at the council woman in Minneapolis the other day, when they here's, here's, here's something so. I don't even want to say her name, but she's on the council. She basically threatens, uh, Bezos with Amazon saying, we're coming after you. We hate your capitalistic. Oh, this is the one that wants to do the tax. Yeah. Yeah. So she says all these terrible things about how, you know, capitalism's terrible night, nothing. And it's capitalism is racism. It's like the two are the same, right? And that, uh, they're going to, uh, impose they did, they voted to impose this $214 million payroll tax. So this is supposed to help the poor, the underprivileged and everything, because they impose this tax. I want to know if she has any business sense at all, because you put a payroll tax on somebody guess who's paying that the people who are getting payroll. Yeah. Yeah. It's not going to hurt Bezos. It's the money's going to come from, you know, so you're not hurting anybody. But according to her yourself. So why are you even doing that? You know, I dunno. I think everybody's just reaching for, for whatever, you know, I don't know. It's just, I'm not very, yeah. Doesn't seem to be, be very smart for people to take action and not think about it. No, no, this was, this was something I was talking to a, to a relative of mine who lives in New York. Okay. And we were talking about Dave lived in New York and the city and Brooklyn forever. I mean, two, three generations. Okay. And it was interesting deep roots. Okay. Uh, disclaimer, he's a, uh, he's a, um, a police. He was a police attendant. He's retired now, but my, uh, okay. Yeah. My uncle is Jamaican and he was a, um, a professor at Columbia. Alright. So not, not a dumb dude. Pretty smart. No. And he's taken view on everything was. You know these people, if they just try and stop blaming everybody and telling everybody this is, this is my, you know, because somebody held me down. I, I, I can't get my, whatever I'm supposed to get. Right. Or every other culture and every other group that's come here has figured out a way to succeed. So. I don't know. I just, I, I got in a pretty, pretty heated battle conversation with another friend of mine who is from Detroit and talking about what they didn't get and what they didn't have. So, well, why the hell did you stay in Detroit then? It's like, well, you know, we thought we could make it better. Well, that's admirable. Yes. And then, and then some other stuff came up and so wait a minute. Who are you blaming for Detroit? Not being. What you wanted it to be? The citizens of Detroit have controlled Detroit. Right. And then he went on about BLM. Right? I, I get it. Well, my question is if a white cop kills a black kid, that's bad. Okay. If a black kid gain bang or kills a black kid that's bad. Okay. So why don't we get the same? Um, coverage, coverage. I don't know. Well, killing the kids, killing the kid. That's it's bad. Right? So fix it. Right. So how many times does that happen when it is? I mean, it's terrible. Anytime it happens. If it's unjustified, it's, it's horrible, right? It doesn't matter. Who's doing it to who it's horrible. How many times does that happen with cops compared to people doing it to each other? I mean, that's why we have the cops. No, jeez, hold that down. Right. What was the guy saying? How many, how many homicides in Chicago? Just like last night, week 33 last night. Yeah. Yeah. Well, look at the, the, um, the gang bang violence here in Denver. Oh my gosh. Where was he? We've had three kids killed in less than a week or about a week. Right. And it's all gang related stuff. Right. So if the community's not going to police the gangs, that leaves it up to law enforcement who are not supporting. Huh, that's amazing. So I wonder where they went up, then all those shootings went up for G was because no, one's there to take care of what they're supposed to take care of. Yeah. You know, and that's what, you know, what are there changes? One thing I think you really need to emphasize too. Well, two things, one that I remember you mentioning this before, and I think this is huge and I don't care what your culture is or anything like that has nothing to do with the state. And the statement is for everybody, and that is. You're right. If you have a family that's broken in any way, if everybody's not there, that's supposed to be there doing their part. There's a high propensity for those kids to get in trouble. That's just a fact, statistically. That's a fact, I don't care if you make a million dollars a year. If mom and dad aren't doing their job, or if you're making $10,000 a year and mom and dad, aren't there doing their job, the propensity for that child to end up on the wrong side of the law or drugs or whatever you want to say is much, much higher. That's just a fact. So that's something has to be addressed. Yeah, that's true. But why did Nixon or no, I'm sorry, not Nixon. Ronald Reagan, who? I loved Ronnie Reagan. Right, right. But change. So you get more time in jail if you're doing crack or first time in jail, if you're doing cocaine, I have no idea. And how did in New York city. Uh, when Ollie North was on trial, how did a train full of, um, Uzis and AK 47? And that stopped in the middle of a track in New York. And gang-bangers knew it was there. How do you tell me? I don't know. I don't know. Uh, you know, it's, it's funny. Like I said, I've got, and you know, I've got friends. And pretty much every walk of law enforcement. Right. And we talk all the time and I've got, I've got friends who are pretty radical and, and who are pretty, um, judgmental right. About, uh, the authorities, but at no time, do both sides talk to each other, never try to find some middle ground. You know, what, what they really need to talk about too is, and we talked about this a little bit earlier. We didn't go into depth, but I want, I want to a little bit here and that is. There's also been a lot of talk about immunity for, you know, police officers and sex. Right. People have to remember if you're going to, if you're going to try to solve a problem, you have to go to the source. And it's very important to understand that police officers, you know, if you're a soldier, whatever you're giving them borders, being a part of a police department is part of a, it's a quasi military organization. So you're told what to do and you're trained to do basically that you don't go out and just, there's a little bit of like, go look for crime or whatever. That's true. There's some lenient therapy. Most part you're given orders. You watch this area, this is what you're looking for. There. We're looking for a certain person because of this crime. It's all about following orders. So if those orders include things that make no sense or unfair to the populace, then you don't blame the cops. You blame the lawmakers, you blame, you know, like city council, district attorneys, things like that who are enforcing things maybe on an uncommon basis. That's where it starts. Well, I hear that at sprint and part of what you said when I have to disagree with, because even though, even like going back to Vietnam to be light master, right. They were given orders to do one thing and I did something totally different. So for part of the accountability, if you're the one in charge, who's a toes with who's accountable. Right. The one in charge, the one in charge. So no senior, most person there at the time. I agree. So doing, if they're doing something they weren't supposed to do to begin with them, that doesn't follow that, that chain of command. I get that. But even like, you know, so the comparatively, I always try to put everybody in the same, in the same category, right? Uh, is it Eric Gardner, if that law did not exist, he would be alive. Period. They never would have that confrontation. Okay. So that's how the cup handled it. Yeah, that was wrong. But put in that position, if that law did not exist, he'd still be alive. So you start at the beginning. I have had no reason to talk to him, Jesse. I hear what you're saying, but here's, here's the scenario. Last summer I saw a video or a YouTube okay. Of, uh, white guy in Arizona. He had a knife running around. He was just outside Phoenix, running around, swinging the knife and the cop didn't tase him. He grabbed the knife, tackled him to the ground and everybody jumped on him. No neon neck. No, uh, Joe cold, they subdued him, carried him away now. And total contrast, I see cops in Baltimore telling a kid to stop who's running, jumping fence the fence. Right. Okay. Right. And they shoot him. Right. So I think from that end, at least for me looking at the. The, um, the problem is, or the consequences of the decision is pretty easy to see, but it comes back again to training. Yeah. Size of force and people, you know, if somebody knew all that's that's Ray Ray's kid, right. I'm just going to go to Ray Ray's house later on, knock on the door and deal with them. But a lot of the officers don't know the kids. No, they don't because they, because I really don't have time. So I gotta tell you, like, just from the training aspect, I don't know. I'm just I'm going on. What she told me as far as Baltimore goes. I don't know any, could you just been just really bad shoot? I don't know. So I don't know the, the, the, all the particulars, but I can tell you what you're describing in Arizona. That guy probably could have got in trouble for doing what he did hand to hand with the guy with the knife. Now it turned out. Okay. But you're trained if, if someone has a knife and they're pointing the knife at you, or they're somewhere in your, if you're within 21 feet, you're supposed to shoot the guy. That's what you're trained to do. So people, yeah. People have no idea how fast in a sale. It was a knife. Can close the distance. Yes. This is what they don't understand. But then again, nobody, I guess what I'm saying. Can we really say that? I don't know what closed the opposite. You say that the assailant was widened Arizona. I don't know what say the officers are white. Okay. So if it would have been a nice, here's a question. If it would have been a black guy wheeling a knife. What do you think would've happened? I don't know. I can't, I don't think that's fair to even, I don't think it's fair to ask that question in Arizona and Arizona. I don't think it's fair to ask that question because I get, I get I'm pretty sure. Okay. I would ask how was he holding the knife? Oh, he was pointing it at him. He was, how was he holding the knife? You know exactly what I'm saying. Oh yeah. Yeah. Well we better shoot him. No, he doesn't know what he's doing with the knife. Yeah. I mean, so I mean, if we're going to be fair, we don't know what's in somebody's mind when that happens. We'd recommend, you know, like for example, uh, bring up really sort of subjects Charvin yeah. We both agree. He handled that terribly well. They released, they released the, um, transcript of all their conversations while that was going on. And the one officer says to chopping, I was really worried about, he says, I'm worried about excited delirium. I'm worried that this is what's going on. And what does Travon say? He says, that's why we're holding them down. That's why we're waiting for paramedics. How they supposed to convict him of murder. If that's what he's telling the other guy they're doing this for, he did it wrong. It was terrible. There's no question about that. Right. But where's the intent to commit murder if that's what the conversation entailed. Yeah, he's just trying to keep control of the goes back to what you said, training. Yes. I'm off the street for, well, maybe he's just looking at things the wrong way a little bit too much, but he thought he was doing what he was supposed to do. And 18 to 20 though. Incidents where he shouldn't have been on the street, especially not in the training mode. I agree. I agree. What I'm saying is that in his mind, he probably thought he was doing it exactly like he was supposed to. Right. He and I agree with you training and Polish, he should have been somewhere else. They should have retrained them. They should got them off the street. You know, like whatever you want to call it, maybe burned out or whatever. But the other they're going to have a really hard time in court because the sad thing is. Nobody wants to see anybody get railroaded. No, no, nobody, but there has to be some accountability. You can't take somebody's life and then, um, and then have it, like, you know what I mean? The boy is this another thing that kills me where the hell is the police union. I've heard nothing from them. So I have, I have a friend who renamed nameless, who does listen to this show and he said, this is what he started. No, no, no, no, no, no. He said to me and, uh, He said to me, he says, you want to, he says, you want to solve a lot of the problems. He goes, I was listening to your show the other day, you guys are right training. Some departments, they don't some do. And some don't. And he says, and it's pretty apparent who doesn't, who doesn't. Right. Yep. And he said, but you were on a sub a lot of the problems. He said, um, The reason you still have these guys who make us all look bad because most of us are good. And I said, I agreed with them. I said, yeah, I know that because we're trying to do the right thing. You know, he says, but it's it's. He says, it's kind of like a few other organizations out there. He goes, certain unions are so powerful. He goes, you can't get rid of the bad guys. He goes in and makes us all look terrible. He goes, so that's something that needs to be addressed. And this is what he's telling me. He's still, he's still active, right? He says, yeah. He said, I'm telling you there, there wasn't one point a reason for a lot of this, there still might be, he goes, but there's so much power in some of these organizations that that needs to be addressed. Yeah. It needs to be addressed, you know, it's just like, Hey, you get a bad teacher. Right. And they move them around. They move them around. They don't get rid of them. They move around. How is that beneficial to the child? That's trying to learn, right? You're saying it's a burnout, a teaching. Yeah. So believe me, they're like, I'm talking to a, you know, my friends too, and they're saying, you know, Hey, we agree. There's things that need to be fixed. There's no question about it, but you need to address some of these things. And that was one of the things he brought up was the political power. There's too much. Politics involved. And I, I was thinking about this the other day, just get your take on this. So something else that people don't really understand is that police exist. Um, they're, they're basically to a certain extent tax collectors, the law enforcement. That's what they're called. Right. They enforce the law. They're not, they. People become police officers or deputy sheriffs over because they want to go and they want to help the community. That's why most people do it. There are those that do it because they like the power. Right. Okay. But most people most become cops because they want to help. Um, but technically you're just enforcing the law. You're basically the messenger. You're picking them up and taking them to meet the justice and have justice decide which way it goes. Right. Um, and, or you're collecting Texas. My thought was. That maybe we shouldn't have so much time spent on. I know this is going to sound horrible, but writing tickets and things like that, because if you're in a poor community, again, forget about the racial makeup, social economics, socioeconomics are gonna have a play in this and you don't pay your registration on time. And you get a ticket for that, or you get a ticket for not using your signal or something like that. You get a ticket, you don't pay the ticket on time. You get a warrant, then you end up in jail. Okay. It's just a revolving, terrible thing because of something really minor. The reason that happens is because that's income, that's revenue. Okay. I, I got to say this right now. Okay. The rule of law is the rule of law. I agree. You cannot change the rule of law based on have and have nots. I agree. I agree. So I have an answer for that though. Okay. Hang on. Okay. So if you're applying the law in one area a certain way, right. Then it's not the same rule of law in a different area. If you're applying it differently. No, I, I think there's a way to do it to be fair and apply it the same way. Yeah. So as long as you apply it the same way everywhere. So instead of, instead of writing a ticket that they have to pay the court and having, I mean, one of the biggest books in the world is a vehicle code. Okay, California, I think, I don't know how many pages it is now, but it was like a few thousand when I was on. And so instead of that, Generating income. And I just have to tell you this real quick, cause like on one of my reviews, I got called into the office when, uh, for my review, you get them like every three months. Yeah. Usually the watch commander gives you your review. Right. And I got called on the chief's office and I know part of it was now we were just talking about unions. I was president of the union. So, but we are actually arguing and fighting for getting our officers to. The city to pay for us to train more. So I don't feel bad about anything we did there. Right. But yeah, he called me in and all my stats were really good. Okay. Well, I'm going in great detail, but like, know my head stops and traffic stops my arrest, my felony, all above board and higher than most in the department, but I wrote very few tickets. This is what the chief told me. He says, you're not writing enough tickets. Everything else looks great. You're not writing enough tickets. I need to write more tickets. So my review wasn't going as well as it was supposed to. And I know it was because he didn't like me either, but I said, Why that's like attacks. I thought we're out here to help people, you know, and I, what I would do is have somebody for a minor thing. I tell them to get it fixed, give him a shot. Right, bye. See you again. Then I'm going to write you for it. Most of the time people would just fix it. All right. Dan and Don said, I don't deal with it. Okay. Yeah, exactly. So he said, no, no, no, no. You write him the ticket. And he says another thing, they just, this is back in the mid eighties, they just changed the. DUI laws. So it become a lot more stringent if you got stopped drinking and driving. Yeah. So where I worked was a very working class neighborhood. Okay. And they have the local bars or whatever. So these guys didn't want to get popped. They couldn't afford to go to jail because they're working paycheck to paycheck. So some of them would leave the bar. They just walk home sometimes not all the time. I'd see a guy here or there that I thought, you know what, I'm going to give him a ride home because. He's going to end up being a victim. I'm going to have a bigger problem later. I'm just going to get it. He was good enough not to drive it. He's not, he's like necessarily drunk public, but he could end up being. A problem, you know, because somebody else is going to take advantage of them, right? Yeah. I take them home and drop them off. Chief found out about that too. She says, look, you write more tickets. And those guys you're taking home. You rest them for drunk in public. I go, you gotta be kidding me. I said, they're trying to do the right thing. They're having a couple of drinks, but they're, they're not driving the car. He says, no, no, no, no, no. That's not the reason. The reason is when you arrest them. And when you write those tickets, That produces revenue, which we get a portion of from the city. And that way we can buy more equipment and hire more officers. I mean, seriously, it makes sense. Yeah, it makes sense there. So here's my thing. If all of a sudden you treated everybody equally across the board, but when you write not for serious offenses, serious offenses, that's a whole different thing. But if it's like a fix it ticket or whatever that can cause the other, then make the, uh, first of all, give them a chance to fix it. Second of all. And this is for everybody across the board. If you end up having to pay a fine, instead of going to the city level list of charities, it's going to go to, and then watch how many tickets and how much time law enforcement's actually spending on that instead of spending it on other things that are probably more important. I know it's kind of a radical view, but I mean, I don't care if you make a million dollars a year. I don't care if you make, like I say, 10 grand a year, um, you're still gonna be treated the same way. It's going to go to a good cause and it's not inducing. It's not an inducement for, Hey, I get more tea. I knew this is what ticks me off about that. There was a guy that should not have ever been a cop that was hired by our department because he kept an eye on all the other cops for the breasts. Not because they were doing something wrong or right. Just because it was a boy. He was a snitch for politics, not for being a good or bad cop. All he ever did. All he ever did every single night after he had three training, which three of us said he should never should've passed. And they passed them anyway. Right. Is go find a DUI because that would take the rest of his shift. He arrested the guy by the time we get them with all the paperwork and took the guy to jail. That was a shift. And he got great stats because every night he was making an arrest on a DUI. Right. Fine. He became a deputy chief before he retired. Okay. So that is. Instead of, I'm not saying that that's not a valid arrest. Okay. But he would park down the street from the bar. And as soon as someone left, he'd stop him until he found one that, okay, that that's not right. That's actually illegal. I'll tell you. I've seen him do it in Colorado Springs. Yeah. But it's not that's that's, you're not supposed to do that. All right. Yeah. I mean, but anyway, you weren't supposed to do, but here's my question. Yeah. Is whoever's at the bar. If they come out and they're not drunk. And they don't blow, then they shouldn't have a problem. Okay. So that might be true, but his probable cause came from the fact they came out of the bar. That's not good probable cause. Cause he wasn't good enough to catch him like crossing the line or anything. He just stopped. He came out here, see, that's a good explanation of the whole deal. Right. But I definitely, yeah, I definitely don't. I see nothing wrong with stopping somebody. If they're not, if they're not driving correctly yeah. Without a hundred percent, but that's not what he was doing, but he made good steps. Yeah. He was, he was making good stats doing that. And then he ended up being a deputy chief before he retired. Okay. Which just amazed me cause he was a terrible, terrible cop. Okay. And, but the problem is then he's teaching. Younger cops how to work his bad habits. Yeah. There's that thing called the spirit of the law too. Right? Like, I mean, you're not guilty until it's proven. You're only, like I said, you're only the messenger, so innocent until proven guilty. Yeah, exactly. So, I mean, it's a radical move, but it's, I think, well, you wouldn't be, but I think a lot of people, a lot of our friends out there would be amazed. I mean, I think you really should take the time to maybe talk to the cop, you know, talk, talk to somebody in the military. Um, And find out what they're thinking, because you might be surprised how much aligned that we are actually are with a lot of our thinking on how things should be. I think that's something else that hasn't really been addressed correctly by, you know, the quote unquote main media or yeah. Well, you know, you, you either watch CNN or you watch Fox. If you're smart, you're watching both and maybe a third channel to help you digest. The information that's being thrown out and then research and everything they say, if it really is important to you, because they all change things around, they all up, you got to do your research. I got one for you. This could be, this is, I mean, it's sad, but it's, it's gonna be kind of funny. You can't use the term peanut gallery anymore. And I so often lately I'd like to use the term, you know, but so I guess somehow, uh, get this right. My question is where are, how are you coming up with this shit? This is what our young, this is what our young never been in the real world. Professors, you know, just finished school learning from some other fool. Calm down now. No, I mean, it's going to be a little ridiculous. When someone tells you, when someone tells you that if you don't ask, if you're a racist, you must be a racist. And if you do ask if you're racist, you obviously are a racist. Oh, here's my, here's the piece of resistance. Okay. When I heard this, I was blown away at, uh, I think I may have brought this up before, but it. It's still to this day. And another friend of mine, he asked me the same question was that real? And I said, yeah, it was real. And he's going like a person that they had been a friend with for years. Sent them a text or anything. And I can't get over this. Okay. If we, if we've been friends for you and I, 30 years, a long, long time, long time, long time. Well, we can't say that now, either I give up, I'm gonna say whatever. Cause I'm by how I treat somebody, not what I say. So that's how it is. So everybody else thinks I'm saying something bad, go kiss my ass. But anyway. Yeah. And I totally agree. They can kiss your ass dude. Anyway, what did they text you? Uh, it was a friend of theirs and it was, it was a black friend and a white, Anglo, white whatever person. And, uh, the black friend texted to the Anglo. Hey, here's what you need to watch to learn how to be a good friend to a black person. To a person of color. And it's like, you weren't a good friend before. I don't, I don't get it, dude. Um, I'm I, people are crazy. They're wackadoodle, bro. I listened to what is it? Cruz? What's the, the, uh, actor's name? Um, top gun. No, not Tom cruise. The black guy, Cruz, the muscle guy. Oh, Terry cruise. I'm sorry. Cruise. Yeah. Yeah. I don't want to ever see him in top gun. He probably wouldn't fit in the cockpit probably bigger than the plain. Very plain. But yeah, I listened to, I listened. I'm not going to say who the guy was. We interviewed him, but I'm telling you it was horrible. Horrible. Oh, you're talking about the news interview. Yeah. Yeah. Get everybody get along and they're tearing them down for that. That's how I took it out. I took it to how much younger than us. He is in good shape. Yeah. Dude, come on genetics. He's got good genetics. Hey, I've got fighters. That, uh, some of the guys that trained with me. Yeah. They could eat cake, the worst diet on the planet and still have a six pack. Yeah. I hate them. I used to be able to do that. I used to go do that. I used to go eat whatever I wanted. Well, I take that back, you know, I used to eat whatever I wanted because I didn't know until I got married that I was like Towson tolerance. So it didn't matter what I ate. What's your wife have to tell ya, you can't eat that. You know what? I get it. I gotta tell you this. So I'm reading all this stuff and all these things, you can't say this, you can't say that or whatever. I'm like, you know, I get, I give up. I thought for a moment, I know what they're really trying to do. You know, the reason you and I, we, reason we been talking about doing this show for quite a while now is because we really felt like there, there was a voice that with all the other things going on out there, there's a voice that wasn't really being heard. Just two guys were not famous or anything, but we're living. Okay. Well, how far back do you want to go? But anyway, but. But, uh, I maybe lose my train of thought. Oh, anyway. So a voice that wasn't being heard. Right. And I think there's a lot of people just like you and I out there. Right. Who are, I mean, they're just, they're good people and they're going, huh? Everybody's trying to make me feel like I'm a bad guy or whatever. Right. And. And all the things that are supposed to be important, we're not talking about and all the things that really don't matter, we're not talking about, but this thing about words, it really hit me today. If some groups have their way, this is what our podcasts would sound like. No, no, no, no. That's it because every word is going to be, Hey, that's okay with me. You know, it's okay with me. Oh gosh. So, uh, so you're still thinking about getting a dog. Yeah, I am. I absolutely am. Yes. You know, if you get it, you're going to have to make sure it gets used to you not being around sometimes. My dog would be with me all the time, then you'll be okay. Because evidently that's another big issue nowadays, since everybody's home, everybody's been at home, Jessie, everybody's been at home, the dogs get used to you being at home. And all of a sudden, when you have to leave, like, you know, go get the mail or something, they had get anxiety. And now you're going to have to retrain the dogs. That's that's an article in the paper today. Yeah. Well, don't believe everything you read. Here's the deal. We've mostly spent time with your dogs. Yeah, really? Um, I'm just going to take my dog and I'm going to Hawaii. I'm going to hang on the beach, eat coconuts and fish. There you go. Oh my gosh. That sounds so good right now. It actually sounds better when it's around February. I got to, I told you, right. I got a buddy that lives out there. He's got a little Boston Whaler. He lives on the big Island every so often. It's like in the winter. But is it, I think it's like a four hour difference, you know, it'd be like seven, eight o'clock and I'll get this text message I'm asleep. You know, I got it's the kids or something and it's just him sending me pictures of like red fish or something. He'd just caught. Cause he's sitting on his boat at night. Fishing that's, you know, he's a retired cop. I mean, that's so, and I really get upset because I'm thinking, man, that looks so good right now. And he's like in shorts and a tank top, you know, and it's February and it's. Yeah, I definitely see that in my future. I just, I love Colorado. I have to admit that there's a couple of weeks in the middle of winter that I could just maybe take a little bit of a break now. You know, just to kind of change it up. You're thinking more, but I know. Well, you know, it was how it goes. Hey, what'd you think about that fight this weekend? Or w w what'd you fighters think about the fight, the last two fights weren't anything special? You know, what is the deal with these young? Like I watched the light heavyweight. I didn't not watch the main event. Um, I think the one guy is from Brno, Czech Republic. Yeah. I forgot if the other guy's American or what, but I watched that fight and it looks like they, I mean, they athletically, they, I mean, they got ability, but how come nobody keeps their hands up anymore. What is the deal with that? Like getting punched in the face, I guess. I don't know. I couldn't believe both of them. I'm like what? You know, who taught you this so well? Okay. In all fairness there, if you get a guy who's a wrestler, right? Sometimes for, for him to use his hands in a defensive fashion is not natural. So we'll go gets it. It goes against everything you learned before. And the same with a martial artist. They're not used to being wrestled to the ground. So each, each end of the spectrum has its own has its own flaws. And it's the person that can overcome that. That becomes the champion. I mean this one with the heaviest hands. Yeah. I mean, it looked like the one guy from Bruno was actually losing the fight until all of a sudden he connected and that was over. But I mean, yeah, I mean, he was taking a lot of punches because his hands were never, never up. It's just, he was. A lot of guys watch old movies too and alone. Other than of the stuff they do. I have no clue. I watch old movies and sometimes they look new to me these days. So, uh, I can't remember that. You just thought last winter. Yeah, I guess I only saw that like 40 times, but I don't remember that. Yeah, really? It's all good. That's great. So you had a busy day. Yep. That's a good thing. I like working. Yep. Yeah. I like, I like working too. Um, is there anything you want to hit on? You think we've hit what we need to hit for tonight or nice. So I got a couple of things I'd like to bring up, but I'm going to wait until next week because I need to do some more research. Okay. So before I, uh, you know, like we were going to talk about hyperbaric medicine and very interested in helping, um, But the Europeans are using it differently than say the Japanese are and, and each one of them are getting great results, but the, the, um, therapy they're using is different and they're using it for Corona. Oh, really? Uh, upper, uh, URI, upper versus Tory infections. So, yeah, it's interesting. It's really, it's really pretty cool. Um, uh, As you know, I used to do hyperbaric medicine. Yes. And I've got a, so a bunch of friends in Oxford and, and Japan and just talking to them about the difference. I found it fascinating because I, of course, when I read the article, I called both of them and they both, um, within 48 hours got back to me and it was. It was good to hear from them and hear they're safe and their families are, are well, that's good. But everything they're trying to do is different and they're both being successful with it. Yeah. Very different, different, um, you know, cause sometimes a regulator, a respirator, uh, isn't the way to go. No, it's starting to seem more apparent now, too, that they're thinking now it's better off just to give somebody oxygen or I also read. I don't know what the term for this, something else they've been trying is instead of putting somebody on a respirator, they're basically, um, transfusing their blood and infusing their blood with oxygen and putting it back into them. Well, see, that's what happened. Barracks would come in because hyperberic supercharges your body. You're breathing oxygen under pressure. So it kind of, turbocharges everything kind of like ask them most of this kind of thing, so, or similar. Yeah. But it's close. I am. Nobody else might understand, but I added, okay. Okay. So yeah, it is what it is, but, uh, yeah, well that would be awesome. And I'm still waiting to get some more and I, and I'm still, um, I've seen spike Lee's movie now twice, and this coming weekend, I'm going to watch it again for a third time, because then I've talked to other people who have seen it and, uh, military guys not surveillance. Uh, and there's nothing wrong with civilians. Let me clarify that. Just a different outlook, a different understanding, obviously. Yeah. And, and all of us have the same question. Like we talked about before. So we're going to have to hit that again a little bit. You know, what do me a favor? Let's set this up. Let's and anybody who's listening right now, let's all do this. There's a movie I started to watch. I have to finish it. It's not brand new, but there aren't a lot of brand new movies out there right now. So now it's called extraction with, uh, Bruce Willis. So I saw a couple of things in there. I thought were pretty. Well, I thought they were funny, but it could be interesting too, as far as technical issues with the movie. So you could watch it and let's see if we have, we noticed the same things. I mean, I'm sure we will, but extraction extraction. It's called extraction. You get it on Netflix. Oh, okay. Yeah. So anybody else who you want to watch and see if, I guess what we're looking for are things that just. Uh, they don't make sense. Uh, they shouldn't, it's not real world. Yeah, it's not. Yeah. Oh yeah. Endless magazines. Yeah. Yeah. So nice. Wouldn't that be great. Let's keep shooting because there's bullets forever. Oh my gosh. And, and, and when you're, when you're conducting a surveillance, uh, the person doesn't notice that you're parked two feet away from their car when they take off. And when you're following them, you're know. By basically have your bumper connected to their rear bumper and they have no idea that you're there. It's amazing what you can do, right. Cause you're cool. Cause it's Hollywood. Yeah. Nope, no. One's going to notice me or you anyway. So, you know, not at all, just saying. Anyway, man, go get some sleep, get some rest. And, uh, yeah, we can talk about the chamber next week. I think, I think that would be really interesting. And you know, what, something, something good to talk about something good that's going on. I also want to hear more about, they're starting to come out with, we'll do this as a teaser to that. No, they're doing all these tests to see who's had it, who hasn't had it. And the difference, you know, we talked about that, but what about this T cell test? I find that very interesting because nobody there, they're saying that that may be how your body reacts to this thing. Now, every other week they have a whole new series at the end when they, when we know what the hell is going on. No are eggs good for you or eggs? Bad. Eat egg whites, ETA egg yolks. Give me a break. Let's eat the damn egg and go from there. Yeah. And you know what? Let's get through this thing. So we're not fighting over. Who's got to wear a mask and not wear a mask anymore. Yeah. Yeah. Anyway. All right, man. I'll wear a mask cause I feel evil. Well, are you wearing a mouse? Cause you're going to do evil. Are you wearing a mask as you feel evil? Cause I want to know what the bad guys feel like about that. Well, I keep up my Batman. Oh, I came out of the store the other day and I had the, you know, I wear a Batman mask and underneath it, it says, you know, fogey gate because you know how, but I think about this whole thing, but anyway, Yeah, don't misunderstand me. It's a big deal. But anyway, you can, you know what I'm talking about? Read the newspaper next week, next week. But this little kid saw my mask. He goes, daddy, Batman. I'm like that's right. I'm Batman. Batman, talk to you later, Jesse. All right, buddy. You have a good one. You too. Bye bye. Bye bye. Michigan plate. We'll be back soon. We will never change our tune.
