tactics for de-escalation. we are going the other route, stronger police forces because that is what you need. todd: president of the dallas police association talking with protesters in the city and was there for the president's remarks and joins us live, thank you for being with us. what was the general reaction to the president's visit specifically his declaration that police will not be defunded? >> overwhelmingly positively accepted. what has been going on across the country, this narrative of d funding and dismantling the police department is really scared a lot of the public and it is unfortunate and not necessary. we need to talk about serious problems within law enforcement and correct them. that is everybody's number one plan. carley: how do you feel about
the way the media and lawmakers are talking about? will you consider that a large majority of police interactions are positive and necessary? >> absolutely. there are 800,000 officers across the country and we answered almost 1 million public contactss between 9 one one calls, traffic stops, extra jobs and throughout his public contacts 99% are more positive. we greatly reduce internal affairs by 50%, reduce officer involved shootings less than ten. we are reconnecting with the community, initiating community relations programs for over 15 years. so many things happening through law enforcement in the media is pushing a narrative that we are
beating people every day. it is just ridiculous, amazing to me how a month ago we were going to covid-19, risking your life every day other than we normally do in our families lives and a month later we are vilified as out there as murderers and beating people in the street. it is unbelievable. todd: it is an odd juxtaposition. your thoughts on the president's plan to address racial disparity, it is a four part plan, increase access to capital for minority business owners, confront disparities in healthcare, sign executive order encouraging police to meet professional standards for use of force and finally push congress to enact school choice. will the president's plan work? >> absolutely, the number one thing we have to do to better the economic standard and prosperity of these communities, if you give better access to
education these kids need to have the best school in the best education possible available, not just available in their neighborhoods but they should be able to go to any educational school in the city in their area that they can and we invest in those communities to make them better and we all would agree competition creates better product and that should be no different in education. the idea of reform as far as law enforcement we said for use the disparity between one department and another department across the country is amazing and the fact the federal government would want to make these standards is immediately necessary. >> thanks so much. todd: 25 after the hour. in a few hours and appeals panel will hear arguments over whether the case against michael since be dismissed.
>> the lower court judge who refused to drop the case will lose, she joins us live. if you think about the last few months maybe it'll give us a new perspective. maybe we'll see things we've been missing. maybe it'll help us see just how connected we all are. and maybe... just maybe, if we look at the big picture... it'll remind us just how amazing freedom really is.

[crowd chanting] >> reporter: as far as calling it an act of patriotism. >> how long do you think seattle looks like this? >> don't know. we could have a summer of love. >> tell that the police who are supposed to be in that precinct. carley: the police are not happy about it, the chief saying this
was not her call. >> the decision to board up the precinct, our precinct, our home, the first precinct i worked in was something i have been holding off. you should know leaving the precinct was not my decision. >> reporter: let's look at a list of things they are demanding, to defend and abolish the seattle police department and attach, justice apparatus, reports of what they are asking, the people of seattle is a crime, the president spoke about the situation in seattle yesterday calling the city very unsafe. todd: a woman arrested for torching the five seattle police cars, margaret shannon charged with federal arson, using an excellent to light the cars on fire during the george floyd protest last month, now expected

pam bondi joins us with her expertise, this is getting very confusing with multiple judges weighing in. explain what is happening with these oral arguments and why it is so important to michael flynn's ultimate fate. >> for people, it is very confusing because this should never have happened, we should never the in this position. in our government we have three very distinct branches of government, legislative make the laws, the judges who act as umpires in the executive branch which consist of the prosecutors and defense attorneys. here we have the department of justice at the top level saying we do not want to prosecute this defendant, this case should be thrown out. they used all kinds of bad ways to prosecute him in the defense is in full agreement, the prosecutors have said and what
you said about the fbi is so true, major questions with the fbi, they came in and set up general flynn. we all know that. they came in during transition and comey, page, peter stzrok had a plan, comey said there was a plan to go after general flynn, there's no reason in the world to go after this man other than they wanted to set him up and trap him and have him lie. they came into the west wing of the white house, donald trump's first week in office, caught general flynn completely off guard, should have been thrown out when they said you don't need an attorney, crazy what they did, they didn't get anything so what did they do, they kept pushing, they basically threatened him with going after his own son so what the general flynn do? here to guilty police, now that all this has come to light, the missteps is an understatement, i believe criminal actions on the part of the fbi, at the highest level, department of justice said this case needs to be
thrown out, then what happened, the judge, judge solomon decides i don't want this case thrown out. he is the reason we have separation of powers where a judge cannot come in and act as a prosecutor, who will prosecute the case? the highest level of the part of justice saying we don't believe a crime was committed here, defense attorneys full agreement so now unprecedented it has gone to an appellate court so the judge has to basically show cause why he is refusing to let the defense and the state, the prosecutors dropped the case against general flynn who has been persecuted long enough. that is happening today. an appellate court will hear from this judge so the judge has come in and appointed another retired judge who shares his liberal political views on the
case to argue the case on his behalf which is crazy. a judge should not be acting in the role of the prosecutor ever. todd: that was an amazing law school summary, you do that for a living. i would go so far as to say you said lawyers understand this, most lawyers never seen a situation like this and it bears repeating going to a lot of confusion, back to the whole crossfire hurricane process. we have some subpoenas issued and there are a lot of obama era officials on this list not going to go through them all but you see them on your screen. as briefly as you can because we are running out of time walk us through how the subpoena process will work and at the end of the day if these individuals will have testimony. >> we have a majority in the senate, lindsey graham at the helm, a great lawyer and so many
great senators and this, we've got to flush through this, this is so important. the fbi are our top premier law enforcement agency in the country. we all know 99% of fbi agents are great risking their lives for us every day and it is a shame when the very top of the fbi, peter stzrok, page, comey are doing these things trying to set up a 3 star general, a 3 star general, iraqi freedom, enduring freedom, general sin did not deserve this, he was collateral damage being a supporter of the president of the united states and head of nsa so that is what happened so we've got to get to the bottom of this because we've got to get these bad fbi agents out of there, lindsey graham has given his list, they are going to subpoena all these people to come into the u.s. senate. i sat there during impeachment
proceedings when democrats tried to go after donald trump and now we have a legitimate case against them and can't wait to hear what they say under oath. i have a feeling most of them will take the fifth. jillian: that is telling in and of itself but thanks for breaking it down. we appreciate it. janice dean with a look at the weather. >> janice: good morning. good news, no major systems to report across the country. it will be a nice weekend for most of the country with a couple exceptions, the cold front that brought the severe storms across portions of the northeast yesterday will linger over the atlantic as we go through the next 12-24 hours and the new system moving to the northwest. this one is impressive because it will bring mountain snow to portions of the northwest, june and we are talking about snow. the other part is south of that region we have gusty windss and

>> lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society and providing true equity for communities of color is not terrorism. it is patriotism. todd: the mayor of seattle seemingly in support of the occupied zone in the city is reports letting of extortion and violence. carley: is the left endorsing the anarchy? the host of reality check on fox nation david webb. we are in desperate need of a
reality check. mayor dirk and said this could be a summer of love with this cop free zone. what is your take on this? >> welcome to the nationstate of chas, those who voted in leaders who abandoned you when is your next vote going to be for those who oppress you or will you? this is a dystopian reality and tragic to see in america but maybe it is a needed lesson for people out there to see what happens when you let insurrectionist, anarchists, various groups take over and this becomes a lord of the flies in reality except where is mayor bloomberg? where the anti-second amendment crowds? people walking around with scary looking long guns and firearms
in their waistband, black, white, every color of skin and what happened to mayors around the country, mayors against gun violence, businesses, reports of extortion, what happens when this goes horribly bad or there is a medical emergency, who shows up, who responds and they are putting up fences and barricades so how do you take back the land from them that they acquired? todd: the patriots as the mayor us refers to them have a series of demands that are on your screen, abolition of the seattle police department, abolition of imprisonment, retrial for all people of color currently in prison, that is on its face unconstitutional, police funding redistributed to social programs, reparations for police brutality victims and the causation of acts of protests was what would happen to the city of seattle with those demands are met? >> you would see chas become a citywide anarchy zone, something
you expect from a hollywood movie but unfortunately this is real life and life reflects art and what we see in their demands is what they need to stay in power whether it is a pseudo-wrapper or someone who can put on a mask and be i am scary and archivists man or woman, these are dangerous people. i took to sarcasm against them to say the least, these are dangerous people and it is the people who supported these elected officials who have to look at reality but around the country we need to take a lesson from this, it is time for the police to stop kneeling, having their hands tied by political leadership and start tying the hands of these writers, anarchists, various groups or individuals, doesn't matter what they want to call themselves and shutting it down because what
they've done is a disgrace to the justice for george floyd that is needed. they no longer care about law and order and civil society, they are looking to tear down society into their form of seattle chas like nationstate dystopia. that doesn't work for anyone including the people on the left. >> these left leaning people create borders and guard them with guns. you can catch reality check with david webb on fox nation, don't miss it and we will be right back.
