ah, i was sidney one day with my friend in her living room. and we has started speaking about him again. now's like, while my baby is gonna be 12 years and she was like were, was the that the city buried home again, i'm like, honestly, i really don't know. the only thing that i know is har island. i went back to the hospital where i gave birth and there were like, yep, a you have to communicate with on the correctional facility. i called and does the lady that i spoke to? she was like, yes, that the baby was there. you have
to sit there away for police officers to actually open the gate and lead to when they actually make you sign papers before you even get on the ferry. i'm like ok. what can i do? is the department of corrections still gonna treat us like if we visiting a jail? but once the captain got close, so us an axe to me, to add any body, notify you i'm. they notify me about what and he does when he gave me the news. we can find your trial here. i'm lay, i just broke down right there. my daughter, my oldest daughter, she broke down crying in i,
i am with is a legend about people i grow up in brooklyn that were very strong stock, very straightforward. and where people that have resources, my resource has always been in my family. as i grew up, i went through all the, the racial, discriminatory situations that the world knows of today that happened in america.
i have learned the humiliation of being that man ah, the civil war freed to slate vietnam was my civil war with the 1st place i ever felt whole as a may. it's the 1st place in my life that i ever met a man of my opposite cult that was true to heart and soul about life and death with me in his name was richard. he's gone and been gone since he was night is oh was our machine gunner he
is that boy from arkansas who taught me of white and black love man becomes family with may with war comradeship. we call it in during my trial of warriors ship, my wife was 17 years old. and pregnant with my 2nd pregnancy she gave birth, in se norman's naval hospital. and when i cat back to the united states of
america, i had no knowledge how to handle any of this type of a base. so when it was exposed to me that it was twins, i didn't even question where the other one was when they only showed me one. now that's a paper to ploy because she's never spoken to me about that because about in maturity i deal with the situation everyone in the world notes, no one wants to bury the family or possibly who should have to go there for
ah, i think he always wanted to have some kind of relation with kim, he didn't want to lose it, but he couldn't control himself. that he had a he had the devil in him when he was born, i guess. and it was hard to find it and came, always want a closure. she always wanted. she always said to me from i guess 16 all the way until she is now that she said, i know i know deep down and i'll always talk to him. i'll always be able to tell him my piece of this story. and one day we get a phone call and i to new york time to call us up. and this moment nina bernstein and the nina said to me, um, do you know, are you related to bruce hanson? i said, yeah, that's my ex husband. and she said, well, i have to tell you something. but it was really shocking to
me to discover that new york state law, a law dating back to the 19th century, required the city to offer the bodies of unclaimed dead to medical schools for to section i learned that there were 22 cadavers that were in cold storage at albert einstein, medical school you know basically the, these cadavers are just lent to the medical schools. they are supposed to then be returned to the city for what the city considers proper burial, which is a hard island trench. ah, i tried very hard to learn the names of these cadavers because i wanted to
reclaim their stories. one of the last of the 20 to that day was pers hanson. mm. even though his body had been in cold storage for 3 years, it had been on lists, sent back and forth between the medical school and the medical examiner's office. the medical examiners office had not done the 1st thing in terms of trying to find someone who knew bruce hanson and would care. and it was easy for fear job is to be the last and most important source of information about this person.
they had his name, they had his name when he 1st arrived to the more they had his name when they put him on a list to offer as a cadaver for to section of medical school. when i had the name and i did the 1st basic search, it came up a medium, his ex wife in new jersey, one phone call. and i had her one phone call and i was, she was carrying the phone to her daughter. nobody called us. i never changed my last name. it's still hanson. i live in the same state as new jersey. nina had no problem calling me up to find out. mm it should've ended up in there. they shouldn't allow that. and for 3
years, being in albert einstein hospital just you know, going through their medical procedures for 3 years, putting him in a cold box poem out, gotten them up, put in it's awful ish, it's awful. i'm angry at how it happened. i'm angry with the medical examiner, the hospital, the people you know, that was still won't give me information on hand. you know, it's my father. i should have a right to know how he died. i'm never going to find out with the medical examiners office calling to find out what you know, the hospital not giving, giving you a hard time about getting the records. everybody's hiding something
so the hospitals work in them with the medical examiner which is working with hearts island. you know, they obviously don't want people to know most the mistakes that they made or things that they just didn't care about on thing about all those bombs on the street meeting. they contacted every single person's family. they throw them probably in the island. ah ah. we're seeing high levels, one certainty creeping in economic life and i think with all away of the disruption of global supply chains receive spike in the cost of energy. we're seeing
a reappearance of inflation. i think all of these constitute on the economy. scroll down to sign risks, which could mean that to get it, whether it's still ahead of us. despite the moderation of the severity of the dominion juice crisis, i saw a message from an unknown account defended herself here with my passport as its profile picture. i saw pictures of my documents, it was they also sent a credit contract. i had just 3 days comply with their demands to see if i didn't send money. i late set up an online hate campaign that i was supposed to be a very dangerous man. with new york city is
just for vacation, new york city is just to come and have fun where your city is not a place actually be live in sloughing or packaging. i wanted to bring in today and talk a little bit about where we are with the case in the position in arguments the cities making in the fight that i'm having with the city continues. and i told them that you and i have talked about before, like if you tell us where the baby is, they'll drop the lawsuit today. that's what this is all about to. we're trying to find out, they don't believe us. we think it's about money. it's time, it's about a search for the truth. one of the issues for the city here katrina is if we
establish here that they don't know, there are other cases like yours that are out there pending. and they don't want to make bad law. they don't want to make their precedent so the further they could push us back and slow us down both ladder to do things bad things will happen to the city. so they're part of their delay is to not but just case come to trial because there are other cases that are going to fall shortly behind. tampa. i feel that they really don't much because all they thinking is about the money. and honestly like has said a lot doing this for money. i want my son back there. say, lou, what we know right now from, from the records are we have is i talked to was performed the body at some point was that the more we do have some indication on one of the records that the body was released for transport. at this point,
we don't know if was transport to some type of medical facility for research. we don't know where that baby was released to. we know where the baby was supposed to be released to and that's the hard island. mm hm. any case that i'm involved with the city of new york is always going to take me years. mm. getting records out of the city of york requires motion after motion after motion for judge to compel them to respond. the more concerned the security issues and welfare issues and housing issues and all the things that make the city unique and crazy place. ah, so most likely i won't, no matter how much will cycle here and get a chance. i can never guarantee that i'm going to give you an answer that question . and i know that's the most important thing to you. and that's the focus of my case. it's always been about getting you those answers.
i guess we're gonna keep fight in then i need answers. why, why do my poor fathers come to holly to join the union? they came for one cry to the free equal me period. oh. and i feel very emotional about it because not only of the soldiers, inter it here, but so is my daughter. i named her i asia we conduct ourselves with many questions about our daughter.
so we have to bring closure to our family and to bring ana love and respect to a soul that we haven't had the opportunity to honor properly for almost 50 years to this day. to not to have touched the earth that she's buried in it. behooves me, to go over there to lay the 1st wreath at her grades and pay my respects to my daughter, who is buried on hot island. in pod is feel of the city of new york. ah,
then i change and change my plight to bring the honor respect and some type of fitting memorial statue over on hot allen for these soldiers of the civil war. ah, to have a city this modern, this cosmopolitan that still buries the unclaimed dad. the way jacob reese recorded in the 19th century just doesn't make sense. it's archaic,
it's bizarre. and yet it also represents a truth about america, about the western world, perhaps that this tremendous inequality not only still exists but has, has widened. bjork still house the drawer is still a named conjure with it still sounds a musical no to people in some distant horrible world. new york is distinct, new york is always gone its own way. new york has its own bitter humor, its own kind of culture. its own kind of literacy,
new york is not sentimental because the city, those not care listening, not care about. mm. does leave you trash. new york city forces monster. you have to fight you have to actually rush, hold with the city in order to just get the very basic necessity of life. ah. then so the idea of the city having something on its conscience, this is rather small blot, frankly. i mean, with all honor to the dead, they are dead. mm.
i think that city is always wanted to forget about hold island. city is wanted to forget about the people who are buried there. it's wanted to forget about the fact that there is a potter's field that there is a place where difficult stories are hidden. mm. new york city is celebrated as the place where anyone can achieve their dreams. but those dreams have him in the cheers by everyone. ah, it's true of people toiling away, digging out the tunnels for sideways, we're building our skyscrapers. ah, is true of people who have wound up homeless or because a society shunned them as happened during the aids epidemic. mm. those stories might not be flattering to tell.
even more, it might tell us things about our present that we'd rather not face ah, mine, we owe it to the people who have been buried there and are being buried there to bring their stories to light the so my bill to the jurisdiction occurred. i'm and i believe that we are at a place where we can finally, the momentum is growing to make hard island a public place that is not forgotten. i 1000000 new yorkers who built this shit made this city the city that it is today. they should not be forgotten they need a better space to be resting ah
ah, or technologist fit perfectly well into the future, but we can't change our way of thinking no way that we can visualize how we will flint and how we will feel and how our needs will be in 50 years. so our own, do our own technological debunk things always further wrong than our ability to feed. we're empowering ourselves to be more efficient, quicker with our transactions. but with that comes a trade off. every device is a potential entry point for security at any machine. it's an extension of traditional time. the defenders have always been one step behind the attackers, both to partner with them. one comes option in the offering. it's not a matter of if it happens, it's
a matter of went to join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure. and i'll be speaking to guess in the world of politics, sport business, i'm sure business. i'll see you then. mm. and the information gauge or if we the jury find that have been in kyle need written tile needs right. health not guilty. breaking news, teenager col rittenhouse, whose case has divided the united states, have been massive media coverage is found not guilty on old charges, overshooting that killed 2 people at a racial justice protest. last year also had to austria, imposes a nationwide lockdown and says vaccinations will be mandatory from february following
