12:10 am
strong stand against it and maybe that is the key. maybe it is because senator lee is standing against the violence and vandalism donald trump is standing against that senator menendez can't tolerate such a position so he is for violence, his for vandalism and that is a sad sad thing and said enough to see in our country, even worse to see on the floor of the u.s. senate. >> authorities getting serious about rounding up those accused of leading the riding in the white house and molotov cocktail throwers. what is your message on that front? >> the message on that front is we are just getting started. we have hundreds of investigations across the country. prosecutions are done by the department of justice, law enforcement officers are involved in many of these which we protect and defend many of these locations and iconic statues around the country and we are going to continue to do that and lean forward to do it. we will see this weekend, the department of homeland security's deeply engaged with
12:11 am
the department of interior with the department of justice, the leadership of donald trump, we are going to continue not only to protect the history of this country but as donald trump is declared we are going to prosecute violent violators of the law vandalized property in the history of this country or threatened or hurt other americans. other people who deserve to be able to be safe, the most basic civil right is the right to be safe where you are and where you live. >> there will be plenty of federal prisons to make sure federal facilities and property are protected in case any rioters wants to cause mayhem over the holiday weekend? >> that is very safe assumption and you can thank donald trump for it. >> the holidays and for fireworks, people using more hand sanitizer, national security council spokeswoman is warning alcohol and fire do not
12:12 am
mix, you should not pair flammable items, the proverbial recipe for disaster? your thoughts? >> is an affection otto fireworks myself i take that advice very seriously. we obviously are still fighting covid-19, the president speaks about this every day really and we're going to go celebrate our nation's 240 fourth birthday. a lot of people will do that outside and in groups but we need to keep our social distancing as we hear from cdc in simple things like not mixing alcohol and fire and fireworks

12:14 am
mexico and we are working on hundreds of miles of wall, not thousands so having situational awareness requires this kind of technology in other parts of the border and the president is very supportive of pursuing this to expand our capabilities at the border, to keep our agents safe and keep america safe. mike: thanks so much for your time. breaking tonight reports that the nfl intends to play the song lift every voice and sing, also known as the black national anthem before the star-spangled banner before every game during week one of the season of september. a tennessee restaurant faces allegations of racism, it plans all the back the blue rally, marsha blackburn on that with her view on the controversy.

speeone's new backlash tonight >> new backlash against law enforcement after clearing out the chop in seattle with laurie years arguing about restrictions on pepper spray and other crowd control projectiles. meanwhile the seattle father mourning the loss of his son killed in the chop zone has calls of support from donald trump and mayor jenny durkin. correspondent jeff paul joins us from our west coast newsroom. >> a federal judge in seattle city council taking action in mid june to stop seattle police
12:32 am
from using things like pepper spray when dealing with crowds. however just one day ago that is exactly what offices used as they began to clear out the chop zone. here's where things get complicated, the court order still gives the okay to use count control weapons in certain situations like if those offices are facing physical harm embassy counsel legislation that bans the use of those weapons isn't even active yet. today wearing helmets and body armor, seattle police went to the area clearing out anything and anyone who might have remained in the chop zone. police arrested around 3 dozen people with charges ferrying from failure to disperse, obstruction, to assault and unlawful weapons position. seattle mayor jenny durkin has faced criticism by some who say she has allowed this to go on too long plus she supported the arrest today but doesn't support constituting everyone involved. >> i believe charges should not be filed against individuals
12:33 am
arrested only for misdemeanor obstruction, failure to disperse for trespassing. as we move forward in healing alternatives to charging a, sanction are also important. >> fences were torn down and see the crews use their hands and machinery for leftover trash and other items. it is just the start of what will likely be a long road forward in the area. is this owners looking to repair damage and scrub off any graffiti that might remain, the shutdown of chop comes after multiple shootings took place in the area two which were fatal, the father of one of those victims has strong words regarding the chop zone. >> they should have been disbanded long time ago. i understand black lives matter and everything going on in everything but that is not my movement right now. my movement is that was my son, you know what i'm saying. i don't know.
12:34 am
i'm not with whatever this, all this going on, none of that, don't know nothing about that. all i know is this was my son and i love him. >> some of the protest groups within the chop zone said previously that their work will go on despite being pushed out, time will tell. mike: in los angeles kelly alex villain away versus plans to defund the police will have an adverse impact on public safety. earlier he appeared on hannity and spoke about unintended consequences. >> they talk about cutting narcotics pure, major crimes bureau that is organized crime, all these different entities. at the minimum we have to detail them, cases will not be investigated, they will have a
12:35 am
bigger workload. >> to here to talk about the state of policing, then had an, heather mcdonald, great to have you. let me get you to react to what the sheriff of los angeles county said there. your thoughts. >> the lapd reported the first week of june had a 250% increase in homicides as a result of the culture of lawlessness that the nation's the leads and mainstream institutions have been if not applauding turning their eyes away from. also gotten the message they can break the law, they can destroy, torch, shoot at cops, destroy squad cars with virtual impunity. the idea that any law enforcement body in this country is somehow overstaffed is
12:36 am
ludicrous, we saw what happened and we will get more over the course of the summer, these cops are working 16 hour days, exhausted, demoralized. the cutting of police forces further will result in more crime, longer response time, more stressed-out officers. the narrative about a racist police system has got to stop. it is resulting in policies that are detrimental to public safety and it is resulting in hatred being directed at the cops on a daily basis as they tried to enforce the law and keep people safe from criminals. >> new york city has cut $1 billion out of the nypd budget. you know who is the plan, new york governor andrew cuomo. >> does it change the use of force policy? are they going to stop beating people? what does it do to change anything that we have been protesting about? would it have saved george
12:37 am
ford's life? would it have saved a goner's life? come on. >> do you favor cuomo over bill diblasio? >> not necessarily. of cuomo says there's a culture of brutality i do not. i think almost trying to be cute, rabbinical and so wise above the fray. about a get out there and say the thing that happened on sunday when cops were pelted with glass bottles and trash, for responding to shots fired call picked up by technology, trying to protect people from getting shot, how about he tells the people of new york do not treat the cops that way. cuomo talked about lack of respect or trust between the community and the police. it is a 2-way street. of course there are cops that need training in de-escalation and courtesy and respect for the
12:38 am
public needs to be told respect law enforcement. >> alexandria ocasio cortez worried about gimmicks, defunding police means defunding police, it does not mean budget tricks or funny math or moving school police officers to the department of education budget so the same police remain in schools so is diblasio cutting or just moving money around? >> i would say he is cutting. he has cut one if not two recruit classes. listen, the police, police officers are lucky to get new cadet classes who want to go to the academy and become police officers. in about 6 months there will be no more. retirements are being filed at a record rate. nobody wants to go into a profession where the first thing you step on the job you told you are a racist. you get hostility, resistance to arrest, this budget will make a big difference. we will lose 1000 officers through attrition. bill diblasio and cuomo should
12:39 am
go to attend a meeting in the 40 first precinct and tell those good people you would get less cops. they want more cops, more policing, they want the drug dealers off the street, the streets cleared of youth hanging out because they know that is where the drive-by shooting emanates from in many cases. this is the wrong narrative and our politicians are letting us down. they lost illegitimacy completely. mike: thanks very much, we have to leave it there. a stunning twist in the jeffrey epstein saga. we will be back after this. ba, we switched to new tide plus downy free. it's gentle on her skin, and dermatologist recommended. new tide pods plus downy free. safe for sensitive skin with eczema and psoriasis. well now there's score!, from force factor, to rev your libido and maximize physical response. it's no wonder force factor is the #1 fastest-growing men's health brand at walmart. unleash your potential in the bedroom with score!.

cuffed and should we expect her to give up significant information trying to cut a deal? >> a former lawyer that something i have to explore and it is up to her to decide. the difference between federal court in state court is generally you have no idea what you're going to get if anything so you have to sit down and say there are no promises. you can give peoples names and if we can't get prosecution the government will say we are not going to recommend any time off. she has a lot to lose if she pleads guilty, she may take her chances at a trial. >> none of them have been held accountable. >> a much bigger iceberg. >> take everybody now. the monsters are still out
