9:17 pm
on scott good to have you with us on the program. it seems that officers in atlanta just haven't been watching television and haven't really understood the sensitivities that are in play at this moment in time and one wonders what they what they are doing. yeah amazing. we had just not mation worldwide protests in the middle of a band binik were guarding reforming our policing system and to protest the unjust george floyd and it seems that during this time the police officers in atlanta and around the united states would be particularly careful to follow the law to it see and to be very sensitive when in wresting and or and gauging with people of color. during their daily routine it's
9:18 pm
amazing that this is happening and i think it just points to the larger problem that we have with our policing system and criminal justice systems in this country they are inherently flawed and they need to be fixed and didn't contribute to that we've had 0 knowledge as there are these past few weeks talking about what's going on the main issue one of the main issues is talking about operational change and where it begins and how it would be rolled out nationwide if it could be changed. well it's going to start with advocacy and likely going to start in the halls of congress we need nationwide change and reform store all these requirements we need to reform the police we need changes in our panel nationwide ban on show codes we need an independent review of our officers when they've been accused of doing wrongdoing or perhaps or killing someone and we need to focus on.
9:19 pm
different ways that the police can peacefully if you're asked with people of color to kill or without killing him this man was killed because essentially you were sleeping in a police parking lot that's why the police were called to use leaving you with a sparkler that's why the police were called we. employ from windies could have came in not only when they could have called the g.'s to address this issue. or call a tow truck there are many other different options that could have transpired outside of causing the police that resulted in his death but of course mr so you really need to see nationwide change and that is the case that still pending but i mean we need to look at the wider picture for example because when you look at look about how police behave they behave they behave in a in an orderly fashion under the auspices of their. chief of police in that
9:20 pm
district while the there a point the chief of police in many cases in the u.s. and and even now these police chiefs one would say need to be retrained but who does the training who is qualified to talk about the sentiments of the public you've talked about the large brushstrokes that need to happen much higher up in the politic of america but at the end of the end of the day it's on the at the grassroots level at the state level at the local level where both public and police have to find a middle ground to talk to each other. well a lot of it comes down to the policing practices and the policing training and also i would be remiss if i didn't mention that in there is an inherent element of racial discrimination in many of these police departments the numbers show that blacks and hispanics are stopped and arrested and a much higher rate then white people in this country and the crime will across the
9:21 pm
board for us say drug use is essentially the same so we see an element of discrimination that we have to deal with we also have to deal with retraining the police to ensure that they are handling these interactions differently and you're right it comes down to the police chief what experience does 'd a mayor essentially a politician have with hiring a police chief what do politicians know about hiring police fire e.m.'s or other issues or let's say that background they have a spirit in that particular earth so really we need to take a much larger collective look at how we are handling our how rather than policing has to handling our system of policing in this country and more importantly how police are dealing with individuals of color and i also recall that we have a reform mr play devil's advocate here because in a society that has
9:22 pm
a great deal of sort of gun crime and there's a constitutional right to bear arms it's no wonder police would be guarded as anyone can carry a lethal lethal weapon and therefore they need to think about that safety aspect when they approach or asked to approach individuals be it in a car park on a main highway on a street anywhere they will always be on alert to start with but it's the thinking method behind us to why they need to be on alert that needs to be questioned. this is training. often when you see police training and you see training videos their top issue for the head of the heart they're taught to kill people. so we're seeing police are trained to kill when you go to gun races you only have to have a big heart or a target and you have a head and order for the police to pass. some of the training. in the police academy to past some of the training situations and tests that they
9:23 pm
have they have to be ready to draw their weapon in killed or shoot our other shoot to kill so it gets down to the training of course we want the police to come home or one piece of horse they have to be wary but at the same time we're also looking at situations where police are killing people who are not committing any crime or perhaps we're committing crimes there should not result in their execution like we saw here with ray sharp or we saw in georgia florida we saw it or garner we saw its merits or saw it on crawford the list goes on and on we're seeing police escalate situations and respond in a bottle a bastion in which they're utilizing deadly force and that is the problem that we need to address we'll see how that is addressed of course in the coming months and yes i'm sure took less land from the national capital structure to thank you for joining us from washington d.c. the q. . thousands of new zealanders have rallied across the country in solidarity with
9:24 pm
black lives matter movements a rally in all clint ended how the u.s. consular office where protesters took a knee and observed a minute's silence to commemorate george floyd protesters also call for change in new zealand where indigenous mardi are over represented at all levels off the justice system the black white matter proteus in new zealand doesn't just talk about what happened to what was happening in america talks about how we are here because over here i want to have the racism the racist if you're not white you're treated like them or either way you're black like in america 3 years ago the deaths of dozens of people exposed just how unequal life is in the u.k. capital in london rich is bara most victims of the grenfell turf i will pour in from immigrant families the prime minister promised to leave no stone unturned in finding out how the dead were failed so badly but for residents feel no closer to the truth as jonah hill reports. church

bells toll for the $72.00 victims of the grandchild tower fire disaster in west london the 3rd anniversary marked with socially distanced visits to the site and an online church service addressed by the prime minister and while no words can undo what happened and the passage of time can heal the wounds inflicted that night i want you to know that i remain absolutely committed to uncovering the causes of the tragedy and ensuring it is never repeated. but campaigners say the underlying causes of many of the greenfeld deaths have not gone away they point to higher death rates from coronavirus among black asian and minority ethnic groups as evidence of ongoing social inequalities 3 years ago. a community in a tower who had raised questions about safety in that we're not listened to
9:26 pm
and one of the main reasons we would archaeal i would argue that they weren't listened to was because of institutional racism because of the demographic they were largely a muslim they were largely black they were working class community and actually they were not taken seriously the pace of reform has also been slow at ensuring this current happen again as many as 2000 buildings are said still to bare the flammable crowding that allowed the ground fell flames to whip up the side of the building and rage out of control with as many as 56000 building residents living at daily risk reinfeldt hour and coronavirus have more in common besides lives from very different backgrounds in one of london's most multicultural settings imperiled then and in turmoil once more. you know as alvarez escaped the fire with her family and wasn't able to complete her exams at a crucial stage in her school career the school is shut now because of the virus
