9:30 pm
see. graves see this least systemic deception is so which. so. welcome to watching dogs. and i'm of the problem so obvious to look at this all these lawsuits fly on the left and right we've got facebook going after you know we've got people going after baseball for a monopoly we've got texas attorney generals 'd and battles drum you know trying to get the supreme court the throw out the election lots of legal fun this week oh absolutely i think the one non surprising one here is because historically at this point we've seen regulators go after facebook now for close to 7 years and facebook has only grown there and the extent of their their monopoly power the buying of what's app the buying of instagram the buying basically everything that they see is having some sort of major communication channel specifically those that have garnered a lot of attention abroad as well so i think that you know for facebook they have
9:31 pm
these things like a burger sit before congress they make statements that are particularly interesting in the same over and over again and he denies that this is actually happening he denies that they have undue influence when we know that it's just incorrect new york attorney general james declared facebook used its powers to suppress competition so it could take advantage of users and make billions by converting 1st into a cash cow i mean this feels like a perfect storm going against facebook right now because you have the netflix documentary about it which kind of led to those that were following social media really shocked the world like only make money off of us i never knew that. but now you see all these a.g.'s you know coming down and charging that the company illegally montagne power by deploying a buyer burying strategy and that's what they're going to hopefully sensually you know face book out of the news and i'm so proud of leticia james all so many. level
9:32 pm
systems you know not only going after trump we're seeing her now go for what she knows when it comes to this monopoly power of facebook as well i think that you raise an interesting point in particular about what they're doing with the data they're sourcing because facebook has such millions upon millions of people's personal information not only you know in america but also in countries across the globe and they're able to tell your preferences your friends the things that you view the things that she like versus don't like and on top of that they're selling this information we know this because there are 3rd party groups that are buying it from facebook but also from other entities facebook being the largest at this point because they control the largest market share of all of social media and it's interesting because part of this what these 45 states and they're seeking to go green space because also to get them to roll back their acquisition of whatsapp an instagram which i mean that goes back a while and they paid a 1000000000 for. instagram back in was a 2012 and then you know from 19000000000 for what's happened 2014 i mean it feels
9:33 pm
a little after the fact because remember congress and all that had to approve those say you know or not congress but they had to approve the government to approve those sales back then and now suddenly to you know years later maybe we were wrong to do that but i remember people like elizabeth warren who were actually on the trail in 2012 as well he spoke out against that we didn't have this huge of a colorado as we do now when it turns to voices but i think part of that is because the general public didn't fully recognize the power of the social media giants want to go back to the trump thing to cause is just hilarious on all fronts they couldn't even get the model or total votes they were looking to overturn right but what's interesting is he's even had his own appointed judges now throw out his cases judge in pennsylvania versus pennsylvania trump for president 1st fundraiser judge stephanos by a boss a conservative judge appointed by trump and 2017 threw out one of his many cases saying calling an election unfair does not make it so charges require specific allegations than proof we have neither here. now they're taking it to the supreme
9:34 pm
court which just this week throughout one of trump's cases the funniest part about this is that the fix was in before this election even happened president trump went on and on and talked about how the supreme court how is nomination pics they were going to help him had he is sure this election not going to favor he was going to use them to change it and we know that he's appointed several judges several federal judges as well and he assumed that those people were going to be the people to break this for him and at the end of the day everything is going against the grain here in upholding the fact that donald trump lost this election it's interesting so you know what's the big question is why did all these attorney generals and the 17 state attorney generals jump into this according according the new york times are reporting that some fear if they don't make it clear they are on the president's side they could open themselves up to a primary challenge or end up or end any hope for a turning higher office in the future so the answer to that question why did 17 state attorney general's job on this cowardice and fear i think is probably what answers bresson do you really want that in your attorney general cowardice and fear
9:35 pm
. it's a mounting concern throughout the united states and now with a number of missing indigenous women in the state of montana rising party correspondent natasha's week takes a look at the issue to see why the numbers are trending upward. 16 year old celina shelley fade not afraid is just one of many indigenous women who went missing in the state of montana this year a 16 year old was last seen at a rest stop near billings according to the montana department of justice on new year's day the days till you know went missing there were 46 other missing indigenous people in the state but as you can see in this facebook page the issue has been plaguing natives for years and the vice documentary about missing native americans volunteer search are carry lance said in all the previous cases that i've been involved with it's always been a recovery it's never been a happy ending and according to the department of justice one of 3 native american women will. the rate in their lifetime according to the vice documentary
9:36 pm
approximately half of the cases involve the murder of a dent in this woman in montana have been misclassified for causes like suicide overdose and exposure while all reported causes of these missing woman very something many of these cases have in common is a confusing jurisdiction depending on where the body is found it could fall on more than one agency so whether it's state federal or tribal authorities some families claim these intersecting agencies contribute to more questions than answers for the missing also bringing about more delays it of americans in montana make up 6.7 percent of the state's population reportedly accounts for 26 percent of people who make up the missing persons reports as time passes the state legislature and congress have taken notice that 10 a legislature passed 10 as act which helps local law enforcement when working with a missing persons case after congress passed the savannah acts the president signed the act into law last october that helped to establish better law enforcement
9:37 pm
practices when dealing with these cases all a distillation has passed the lives of many natives continues to be unaccounted for reporting for watch in the hocks natasha sweet r t. it's fascinating and tragic report and i want to point out that this isn't something just contained to montana we're seeing reports of an epidemic across the country even him accountable of these you know missing or and or murdered indigenous women girls and it's really frightening it's frightening and it's problematic because the the level of investigation the level of attentiveness that is paid when somebody goes missing is not given to indigenous women the resources aren't there where the resources are there they're just not segmented to this group and it's something that they've been experiencing for years now this isn't a new issue at all and from the report we just heard you know a lot of these are misclassified or miscast by purposely it seems in some cases where they're calling it any. but what it actually is i want let's be real to when
9:38 pm
it comes to coverage of cases like this when it comes to media attention of cases like this we get far more media attention to the blonde white girl in her twenty's who disappears which is also tragic because nothing less tragic about anyone any woman disappearing you know but the media's attention to things kind of only goes in one direction so when you don't have any light whatsoever put on a situation like we're seeing in montana and other states across this country for indigenous women that's absolutely correct and i think that this this also talks and speaks to another dark underbelly of america where indigenous people have never received the respect or the attention they deserve anyway we know that there are the resources when it comes to education when it comes to just do the acquisition when it comes to housing that these things are provided as readily to indigenous people and now we're seeing these these crimes. and it's sadly i want to see an end in sight but i'm not quite sure that we will because again the process to actually finding these criminals and bringing them to bear is not something that it seems
9:39 pm
like we're willing to follow through on but one thing that we are willing to follow through on is continuing coverage of this story and in future upcoming watching the hawks up of we will dig deeper into this story with some people who have dealt with it 1st all right everybody as we go to break remember that you can also start watching the hawks on the brand new portable t.v. which is available on all platforms coming up we delve into one of the most controversial cases of this justice of wrongful imprisonment the side of a 21st century civil rights lawyer in the armstrong joins us to discuss the tragic case. stay tuned watch of the whole. global free up money ponzi scheme has hit the buffers in the stock collapsing like burning made us laugh and now we're going back to poverty so the answer is always bad you need to actually sound. like gold but of course that doesn't work so much
9:40 pm
as the big point of this and what'll happen is they'll be hundreds of millions and billions of people in the world that'll say they're such a bank of the earth their nation state government saying you know we're not interested in film money anymore we just want to have our own money have our own peace of mind and you can go away. look. at these i say. i think they're on the cheap. and then we went through all the countries let's idea the right to go to his country he said 50 give them everything to do to. be. leave this country. this is what we don't understand how we are in such
9:41 pm
a country. that's in the month of the same time. the soon to run off with a similar symbol. of a good one. because. if the minutes of kong were not there got to meet leave again with the phone with the computer with the plane. would come back to the 3 story you have to see. the best. to move. to the. initial what show you just what that also has been. the progress we're doing more it's. just it was. when you watched. it's. right up of course on but there were all of.
9:42 pm
them also from the still police and you're. going to. some of what they did that the more. we make this. move. you can look to. see usual not just on the mom. but that is a mother like. battle.
9:43 pm
that actually not. even gets. his fish pierced with a trip to. believe in this film to. imagine picking up a future textbook on the early years of the 21st century what are the chapters called gun violence school shootings. first it was my fault it was my field it was my savings i have nothing i have nothing it is not like at all true i look for resources i look for drugs i look for everything i can to make this house. in the eye in the doing so. the road to the american dream paved with dead
9:44 pm
refugees it's this very idealized image i want our. americans to look at the cost of the deaths that happen every single day this is a history of the usa but america. you. say his name my on. he's never been a trending hashtag and he didn't die at the hands of the police but 2 decades of his freedom did for many outside of minneapolis burrell story is new but organizers and civil rights advocates on the ground just as well it's been a long time coming
9:45 pm
a legal panel of experts released a report tuesday recommending the immediate release of my own burrell who was convicted in the killing of a young girl hit by a stray bullet in 2002. the panel's findings weren't exactly new revelations the associated press and a.p.m. reports earlier this year included a lot of the jaw dropping information that should have ultimately led to. a litany of wrongs led to the railroading of a young black man things like unreliable testimony from a sole eyewitness heavy reliance on jail informants who all had a lot to gain and since reductions in exchange for their testimonies and the failure to retrieve surveillance video from the corner store that would have prevented the row from spending any time in prison. but when it comes to crimes of picking them on a black face it seems investigative protocol goes out of the window when police investigators and prosecutors want to fast track someone they will find a way to make them guilty regardless of the lack of evidence that's what happened
9:46 pm
to be. the 8 member panel reviewing his case didn't even get all the evidence it requested but they recommended the case be hated over to the state's new conviction review unit making note of the substantial missing items that could yield new evidence of innocence or due process issues be mindful that burrell was a teen when convicted he had no prior criminal record his sentence has been viewed as extremely harsh in this criminal justice reform area with a lot of weight placed on sentencing over reach for juveniles case is one to watch some of the alarming issues surrounding the conviction or no hard evidence was presented no gun no d.n.a. no fingerprints codefendant said he wasn't even at the see and video show the lead homicide detective offering a man in police custody $500.00 burrell's name and here to tell us more civil rights attorney is the kima levy optional welcome to. all new came up
9:47 pm
based on the lack of hard evidence what we know are failures of eyewitness testimony and the fact that as a teen with 0 priors not only became a prime suspect but it served over 2 decades can you explain what happened and why this case is just now receiving a national spotlight. what part of why this happened minneapolis in the 1990 s. was given the moniker a murder murder happened because there was either better game by the us that was happening and so that led to a crackdown on the part of police and prosecutors or to the really young black man and unfortunately even though my own baroda as a teen at the time and 11 year olds i wish edwards was he was treated like a grown me by the criminal justice. in stably the lead prosecutor of unit in county durham. was dinner and he called the shark the reason that this case has now gained national international attention is because any close shark used this case
9:48 pm
to campaign for office to be reelected as the county attorney to run for the u.s. senate and ultimately soran for president of the united states and so activists in the twin cities students ringback out of the early with my family in demanding that any call bush are either addressed. bogus case that happened to my wound or step down from running for president of the united states and we disrupt in many events including the why and the night before she decided to withdraw from the presidential race i want to ask you as was highlighted as you mention and talk about quote which are you know what in looking at her role we know about as you laid out what role she played in holding up burrell's conviction in a war that as a badge of she was running for various offices you know has as shoes shown any acknowledgement for justice for this young man since as has she want to see this
9:49 pm
wrong right righted in any possible way. whatever. initially she was pretty silent about this case as she was running for president but as the case gain more and. moments some more people around the country including other elected officials started to ask him closer about his case as well as national media so she was ultimately forced to address the issue after she stepped down from her run for president and she met with a group of birth i was present along with the most recent president of the minneapolis to leslie redmond and mario and rose family and we had an opportunity to talk to enclosure about our concerns about her mishandling of my amber rose case and where we wanted her to take a public stance on the issue so she wrote a letter to the current has been county attorney mike freeman basically saying that
9:50 pm
she was open to the case being investigated as a matter of justice she laughed finally reached out to mike freeman and talked to him about the need for reevaluation of the case we have not heard her since been but she's taken us far as you go out to visit her actually does work for those that would serve and mckay may you have been toiling the soil on this for a very long time at this point along with several civil rights leaders the legal panel didn't receive all of the evidence cherry documents that they had requested but they are still calling for burrell's immediate release based on the facts they do have what message does this send and what do you think is the likelihood that he'll be released. or whatever and shout out to my arrows family because they have actually been on the front lines carrying the torch and they allowed us as activists to come alongside
9:51 pm
a bit of fighting for my street and beyond my and themselves with the growth of earth for his own freedom i think the decision by this legal you know gives assume a minnesota criminal justice that we are. far cry from being a just system we need a conviction integrity unit which recently there was funding for the acted so claims we need to reopen all of these cases with that involve the minneapolis police department and you have defendants that are saying bad they are innocent of the crimes for which they have been. so my hope is that this causes a cascade of changes within our criminal justice system in hennepin county and the state of minnesota is long overdue yeah i want to ask you about those changes because look you know minneapolis became the center of the spotlight after the george ford murder this summer and i know that you were right there on the ground
9:52 pm
and from fighting i'm working hard to get the city of minneapolis to change its ways to get the city to be you know be from the police and change and go to a different style of policing in the city what is there and when you look at what happened to burrell to about falls into this pattern where is the city of minneapolis on this what has come from the protests that we saw this summer are they following through with the promises we saw all of them make when we saw the photo op where they all stood up on the stage the submarine's that all we're going to change are we policing the city are we seeing that change. well or that. low this summer i'm not a little. they made a declaration that they were going to dismantle many of them aren't even though it may be illegal they were going to do so and so what we have seen since that time is that the who are between the minneapolis mayor and she and the members of city council there was recently a budget hearing in which it was agreed upon that $8000000.00 will be cut from the
9:53 pm
police department budget so some people are cheering those cuts because the police are heavily funded and a lot of those resources could go towards social services and mental health and other needs and. and we've also seen over a 100 officers who have taken medical leave. when the minneapolis police department is saying that they are short staffed as a result we've seen a slowdown of 911 and we've had unfortunately one. shot this wave of. shootings since joyously was killed and so there have been a host of issues that are still not resolved we're still on the front lines demanding change and many just. and hoping that elected officials who do the right or will get out a bill that came with good people like you on those front lines i do see change
9:54 pm
cope we come into the city of minneapolis state of minnesota and the rest of this country thank you again so much for coming on and for the good work that you're doing up there keep up the fight. and i wrote an. article one before we go c'mon admit it when you 1st saw the images of that notorious giant murder hornets and found out they were hit in u.s. shores in 2020 seriously you can you can you could admit it yourself you you proved yourself a little bit scary scary hornets' well it's ok because you don't have to be embarrassed about that because you're in good company in fact clue just might be what saves the honeybee from these brutes new research of the sky over that asian honey bees when faced with the threat of these giant hornets of the best but genus have been smearing animal feces around the entrance to their hives yes apparently giant murder hornets are just as turned off by a front doorstep filled with poor as the rest of us are in fact one study in
