well that's what it was in the dark side i'm sorry robot and i'm taffeta lalas and i just want to save us that the video games that she's talking about that the military is the most violent the ones that actually if you were going to say have any kind of connection that are first person shooters an entire category of video games by the way first person shooters the ones that they're talking about that the military use those are things like ghost recon call of duty black ops call of duty modern warfare ghost recon advanced war fighter. one thing about what these all things and that have in common for most of the game you play as a u.s. army soldier or a marine or a navy seal or a special forces assassin out to. take down somebody and so by and large the bulk of the most violent video games or are war games that recreate world war one world
war two vietnam korea any of these like major moment push the military industrial complex where before you so. yeah it's interesting you know if it's all sort of the goods it's like people are quick to blame everything but the person who did it you know live there are so quick to blame of it well it's got to be this it's got to be this because we always need a reason for by what i. mean and now it's video games and what's sad is that there's no evidence that supports that video games cause bad behavior in fact the u.s. secret service conducted a review in two thousand and four and did a bit of buying causes of school shootings that have found just twelve percent of studied attackers twelve percent five out of forty one expressed an interest in violent video games more of them had copies of the energy book and their house than have video games in our school shooters so it's sort of like saying what if you buy the book what if you find a board game oh my gosh what if i in this. i think it's interesting because there
actually was a study by the southern economic journal that was talking about that it was published in february twenty sixth and that showed that actually video games can be tied to a decrease in violence and that researchers found a reduction in crime rates in areas the weeks following major video game only ones inside playing a video game without committing crimes away when we go to get the brand new brand new mad brand new n.b.a. two k will play rather home rather than going out right on the streets i mean i got to tell you folks for the folks at home i play a lot of video games and i've never wanted to actually go out and play a real dragon because that would be inappropriate i mean i have one or two controllers in my time but i've broken with a millimeter off in my time but yeah it's never people it's never like i've never you know raged outwardly at somebody next to me when you lose you lose this was a disturbed young man who doesn't know how the reason is ben he got the you got beaten by an african-american and i that's that's where i think that's why is
i think the it lies and those were much more concerned about what toxic young white man and a really bad society that teaches them a lot about i think what's interesting too is the american psychological association and media psychology division actually advises the visuals and reporters to stop making the connection between video games and real life acts of violence they said quote journalists and policymakers do their constituencies a disservice in cases where they link acts of real world violence with the perpetrators exposure to violent video games or other violent media there's little scientific evidence to support the connection and it may distract us from addressing those issues that we know contribute to real world violence which is usually poverty depression exasperate should you know a feeling that they cannot get ahead you know million diverse racism right and different things will be yeah it's not about it's not about the game about why. to
play. on nov twelfth eighteen forty professor john anthony gardner davis was shot and killed by a student on the grounds of the university of virginia kind of the first school shooting and since that nineteenth century school shooting we've had many more but whether it's virginie attacked newtown or parklane they all have one thing in common the data surrounding the events isn't telling the whole story and may even be making things worse the us department of education civil rights data collection division reported that from twenty fifteen to twenty sixteen there were two hundred forty schools in the us that reported at least one school related shooting but a recent national public radio investigation revealed that of those two hundred thirty five schools the federal government reported school shootings in one hundred sixty one of those schools told n.p.r. that no school shootings had taken place thirty seven schools in cleveland alone told them that they intended to mark the previous data point not the one that was reported for incidence this is incidences were miscategorized with only
a leaven being confirmed the remaining fifty nine could not be proven or disproven by n.p.r. that means that only four organizations are collecting and compiling statistics on school shootings and that they all rely on either self reporting by the schools media reports or incomplete law enforcement reporting and that inaccurate data is what the federal government uses to determine how much money should be spent on what programs and which one hundred sixty eight spending about nine hundred sixty million dollars on school safety programs since the park was shooting in february of this year the very least we could do for the people actually lost in senseless school violence is to base those safety programs on correct information that i could not agree with you more we. should be using the correct information when we base any kind of legislation or make any kind of societal decisions because we have data how can you make good not i mean we're going to kind of good to some of the subject matter you know all. so. it's hard for me hard for me too to
want to put the safety of my children in the hands of but see the boston dry should be tough for me that's not a great ludo yeah it was tough especially when those two have bad information. and you can't blame whitebread see the boss that wasn't on my way there is just to be clear betsy to us and come up with a system she's just shoes keep doing what they've always been doing yes i was not into any better but she is using this data plan for the federal government to pay to arm teachers with firearms in schools which i'm sort of maybe off topic but is the best if you arm a teacher at a school what happens if the teacher decides to go about and shoot up a school. we will get them a calming video game which is money because they always say like the violent video games make you violent then why don't we just have more calming video games that make you feel better about yourself and not hate your body or your gender or your skin color or your religion for good i mean this is
a crazy idea right now if we were because like i said there's only four organizations that we rely on for this information right now and it's much like police shootings it's it's fairly disturbing the fact that you have the see your cd which is civil rights data collection part of the department of education you have every town for gun safety which is obviously an anti-gun organization and therefore as much restriction as they can get through. and so there's obviously an agenda you know not that i think they're being. i'm not saying that they're lying about the numbers to make their point but i'm saying that they're going to take their isn't just to it to some extent you know they trust certain things that are going on there and the only other two are the f.b.i. and the washington post. trustworthy organizations those two how dare you. but the one thing i found really strange is that when n.p.r. got in touch with them and said hey we found these mistakes the federal government so it's. partner of a division of the department of education the c.r.c.
responded as saying that they rely on schools to self report but doesn't check to see if the information is accurate for accurate before publishing and they also went on to say this year in d.c. accept correction requests for up to one year from the moment of the submission period opens for the twenty fifteen twenty sixteen collection the corrections period closed on june thirtieth twenty eighteen and for this reason your data correction request cannot be accepted however data no will be included on the data file so ensuring is this or where the errors you're reporting now one of the errors that n.p.r. was trying to point out is that there was an incident say november twenty first twenty fifteen a it was a saturday and a student posted a picture of himself at home holding a gun and had post not in a manner just you know be golden gun and post to social media and that was listed as a school shooting and they will not correct it because while you're at it most of the day we have to correct remember third is going to leave this data out here for
david lyons has precisely ologists just if you are a data scientist or says don't use that don't use a. lawyer every time i mean they track every time a firearm discharges and i run inside or into a school building or on or on to a school campus or groves as documented by the press you know it's look here's the thing it's like i think the problem that you have your is that most of us in watching news or reading information you think a school shooting you immediately think of which is going on here and killing people major school shooting not someone accidentally discharging a firearm in a pickup truck in a parking lot or something about it sure you know this is like you know like a usual friday and tomorrow scan through the school as. we go to approach for what through the what is the always you think of the property over the facebook and twitter so your poll shows that our teens dot com coming up we dealt with the allegations with the chinese company. may have cracked all of the
recordings e-mails while she was secretary of state and that artie's actually banks reports on the rare guilty verdict of a texas police officer charged with the murder of a young black teenager still stay to the washing local. join me every thursday on the alec simon show and i'll be speaking to give us a little the politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. seemed wrong but all wrong just don't call. me
a little bit just to say proud these days because that's ahead and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. you know we would want to do love you know they would see. you as a levels from somewhere you. are given by the community and. people we are based on the you know the roads look out for me well look out his or i will go towards him. but i will i was like oh no. you're. not going to like.
she. says you mean you don't think that was all that. what is your good looks good oh. no we're going to this. is the toughest also i don't know topping the my life. i've seen my own have to die. figures are being pointed accusations are flowing and denials are flying in washington after the daily caller dropped a bombshell this week reporting that a chinese own company operating in washington d.c. area in the washington d.c. area hacked hillary clinton's private server throughout her term as secretary of
state and attained nearly all her e-mails now the daily caller it tributes this story to just two anonymous sources but that didn't stop us president from taking to twitter and drawing criticism tweeting out hillary clinton's e-mails many of which are classified information got hacked by china next move better be by the f.b.i. or d.o.j. or after all of their other missteps their credibility would be gone forever the f.b.i. . countered the president telling reporters that the f.b.i. hasn't found any evidence that china that clinton servers were compromised here to help assess out the latest claim a foreign government hacking in the potomac he said she said they said that follows conservative commentator dave miles. and i dare you to say that again because if i may is that i haven't got there are one says that not just today but it was because the daily caller you know kick start of this incredible story but they are just sources to to anonymous sources which i mean time i hear anonymous sources always makes might be some time to raise you know why why should we believe
the daily caller's claims why should we think that this is accurate information with reporters well you know you could take it all the way back to when the former head of the f.b.i. james komi said that no prosecutor would ever bring charges against hillary and take the case also brought up the possibility that yes. there could have been bad actors that got involved and got ahold of some of hillary's e-mails as a matter of fact there's a fox has reported on an e-mail from may of two thousand and sixteen where peter strock of peter's truck was a counter-intelligence along with lisa page this story says that the inspector general of the intelligence division went to the f.b.i. with this information that hillary's e-mails had been hacked by the chinese and that they had all of her e-mails and that peter struck was one of the people that was told about it and did nothing and then an e-mail in that was back you know fifteen and sixteen there's an e-mail reportedly from peter where he said we know
that foreign actors got a hold of some of hillary's emails so that that we know so it all does make some kind of sense. look i was particularly taken when the donald trump said are you sure it wasn't russia i thought that was a great line and we're going to want to that but but but we know why shouldn't we believe this really i mean it's not the. on the the realm of possibility china was accused just a few months ago of infiltrating and hacking the navy and co and some some specific submarine anti-ship missiles and all that stuff getting the plans for them and all that so china we know is very active in the espionage i think they learned it from watching not perfectly honest they probably got it as fast ten such as kind of why this is a bad idea but what do you think if this indeed happened a chinese company that may or may not have connections to their government has access to clinton's e-mail during that time. what kind of fallout could we see of
a security breach if it comes out is prevent of this size well imagine of hillary having shot or even saying it but imagine if hillary had been president a talk about blackmail i mean the chinese government if this is true would have had over thirty thousand deleted e-mails that nobody ever saw except her and her cronies in their possession to blackmail city so that's one thing as far as now i mean that if they have it it hangs over her head it could be leaked someone could hack into the chinese government computers or you could have some rogue person leaking it to wiki leaks or somebody so if this is true it's out there and all the classified information that hillary dealt did and let's not forget we have found out that baracoa despite his that his claims that i just found out about her server would be in the media with everybody else he was one of those who
corresponded with hillary on her secure server so we might if this ever comes out china might have that correspondence between barack obama and his secretary of state hillary clinton so there's all kinds of possibilities if this ever does become public if this is true you know it's interesting president trump you know immediately tweeted out this story after story broke the color saw before. news reporting it which then you know obviously caused this brief war of words the tablet that was talking about mythos in you know with the f.b.i. and denying accusations and making accusations is this war of words and tweets actually distracting us from getting to the bottom of this story and others because it seems like sometimes donald like immediately puts out the tweet and then everybody you know the mainstream and everybody focuses on donald this tweet and who he's fighting with rather than the actual meat of the story. well guess what guys and you know this nobody is talking about this really thrilled that we are and
you are to go kudos to you for having me on to talk about this but there's this isn't a big story today they're not saying hillary's emails could have been hacked by china the media has no interest in that scenario in that story line it's not russia if this was russia maybe they would have given it some play although of course it's hillary so maybe not but china they couldn't care less who is spying on us they couldn't care less who is attacking us they couldn't care less who is breaching our national security if it's not russia they want us to believe russia is the only person who's got a fair use intent and would do anything to interfere with elections and is the only one spying on us they don't talk about us doing it to other countries and they don't talk about other countries doing it to us it's just russia and i think there's so much we need to and that's what i want to my next question comes to because i feel like we've gotten so caught up in this idea of nuclear disarmament in certain areas as if that's going to make all the the you know the change in the
world and everything will be peaceful but really right now it seems to me that cyber security and cyber espionage is far more dangerous between learned from snowden and everybody else and the spokesman for the chinese foreign ministry actually stated that these accusations are nothing new and said china advocates that the international community jointly responses cyber security threats through dialogue and cooperation on the basis of mutual respect and quality and mutual benefit russian president vladimir putin has also stated that it needs to be an international dialogue and agreements over cyber security so my question is just like with nuclear weapons just like we have with chemical weapons just like we have years every generation at some point said we need to get a hold on this why are we not having an international sit down in geneva with all the countries and say look we've got to. and a hand on this and makes some rules about cyber and espionage and spying. well that i mean that's a good question and again i don't know how much faith you could put in any
agreement that would be reached because governments could always use third parties and say we did we don't know anything about that guy or that company or that organization that's that's hacking into your government files so i don't know but i'll tell you what bothers me more is that when it comes to cyber security this country you know it really reached its peak under obama the eight years i mean think of how advanced we all got the whole world when it comes to the ability to do this kind of thing cyber espionage the threat to our power grid which is so vital because if our power grid goes down we're dead i mean that we're dead literally if it goes down for an extended amount of time no food no fuel no medicine no anything so i'm more concerned that we have not as a country done more to protect ourselves against cyber threats including the grid and everything else and shored up our defenses and yes would be wonderful to have
you know what international forum where we all promise cuba but i don't think those could really ever be trusted maybe that's just the skeptic in me and i'm not well i'm a gent x. or so i'm very skeptical and i have you know i had a better and that i will say at me as my leg you know could hit the liberal that i am i totally agree with the honest idea that we no concept i think our government does nothing to think of what could happen in those things if we were in long range even diplomatic wars with countries where we can't get fuel we can't there are so many ways that you know people and it's always the people at the bottom the working class and the poor that will have you know extra bottled water and actually food to get them through the night of the first to suffer very interesting too because they brought a good point i think we've spent far too much time off but you know we're looking at our security apparatus. in our cyber capabilities i think we spend far too much time on often rather than defense and i think that's a great point that you brought up and you know i think you touched on this earlier
it's interesting to see how the how the mainstream media is just completely went to sleep on this story even even if it's true you know protect hillary in the bunker they've completely just not even really even gone in that direction or even asked about it you know why why is that why do you think that it's like why are we so obsessed with just one country hacking us or you know him or not at all like why is that obsession there we're out of the media because if china hacked hillary that doesn't in any way further the narrative of trump can't be involved trump can't be accused it's not going to get trump out of all this in the minds of the media it doesn't push their narrative in fact that it dilutes the narrative it confuses people and now you tell me china not just russia so they want to keep the focus on the bad guy the bogeyman that they've created russia and make it seem like it's only happened in this election it's only donald trump is to blame colluded it just doesn't do them any good and their goal is to get rid of trump it's been that way
from day one after the election and saying china did something to hillary just they're not interested you know it's also interesting too because remember i think it was just recently we had reports of the i'm fine stephen for x. amount of yours her driver was was accused of being a spy for china so it seems like there's a lot of leaky holes in the democratic side i think is what comes out of china. you know a lot of a lot of leaky holes and by the way if i may i think every time i'm on your show somehow it comes back to this where the heck if you have sessions trump said you think that's what he said what are the chances the justice department the f.b.i. will do the right thing here i say zero sessions has to go this is another thing that needs to be investigated he has no interest in it he's in hiding i don't know where that guy is but he doesn't. along is the attorney general of the united states again we agreed to write to you i think but i think a lot of us just some seems to be distracted by going after you know medical
marijuana and legalize you know that it and that's a that's a big that's right now some calm down and focus on the job he needs to do now and i'm like what it's really is incredible and this is an incredible story and i'm very curious to see where it actually ends up and where it ends up going but thank you so much for coming on the day with us to discuss this always a pleasure having you on steve always my pleasure thank you guys appreciate it thank you. and finally today we punish with a verdict we rarely see in the story involving a shooting death of a young black man in the police here in the united states on tuesday a jury in texas found springs police officer roy oliver guilty of murder in the shooting death of teenager jordan at birds who was shocked by oliver after leaving a party with his friends back in two thousand and seventeen ortiz ashley banks says more on this surprising conclusion to a very familiar tragedy. were all over was found guilty of killing unarmed high school freshman jordan at words as the teen with the leaving
a house party last year many are calling this conviction where an airplane twenty nine twenty seven teen officers were dispatched to a house party after receiving a call about under age drinking oliver says as he was in the home when he heard gunshots outside and thought there was a shooter. he went outside and saw a car filled with five unarmed teenagers including edwards they also shot into the vehicle striking edwards in the head the fifteen year old died and stanley oliver later found out the gunshots were coming from the car but instead were being fired near i'm nursing home in the area oliver was fired from his position shortly after the shooting took place over testified last week and said he saw the car moving toward his partner and thought the officer's life was in danger however his partner testified saying he didn't fear for his life and didn't feel the need to fire his weapon and call out a rich family and friends were more than happy with oliver fiction and the words
family attorney said quote this case is not just about jordan it's about samir writes it's about walter scott it's about alton sterling it's about every african-american who has been killed and has not gotten justice and texas governor greg abbott tweeted shortly after the conviction was announced this life it should never have been lost oliver is only the second officer to be convicted of murder within the past thirteen years he faces the possibility of a life behind bars and washington national banks aren't here and that is our show for you do they remember what in this world we're not told we're loved enough should tell you all i love you i am tyrone winter and on top of the polish people are watching those talks have a great day much everybody. you
know my going to want to. get. your for your height oh i lost his boss because. we don't have any. money but that's honest i don't mean. so i says you know what i was you know i got you know just i mean what almost did i'm already but it was just going to be i mean. if it up as i must. get it off i'm getting worse but those was. just. my family fussy about my just but that's already yes it will be and he thought of. us implemented.
how. out of the money out of the money that they let us in. this was a good time to. try to move. the. legality not why not. why. people believe the o.p.m. . one of my kids i live on the john even the moment on a mother how do you size up the little on the way to maybe you'll be left alone for the. most part of the bloodletting.
pranking gave americans a lot of new job opportunities i needed to come up here to make some money i could make twenty five thousand dollars as a teacher or i could make fifty thousand dollars a year truck so i chose to drive truck people rushed to a small town in north dakota was among the rate of zero percent was like the gold rush is very very similar to a gold rush but this beautiful story ended with pollution and devastation a lot of people have left here i don't know too many people here anymore just slow down so much they lost their jobs that laid off the american dream is changing that's not what it used to be. and that's a tough reality to deal. with
