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 play 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 i he always wanted to have some kind of relation with kim,
8:36 pm
he didn't want to lose it, but he couldn't control himself. he had a he had the devil in him when he was born, i guess. and it was hard to find it. ah, 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 times a con us up and this moment nina bernstein and, and 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. it was really shocking to me to discover that new york state law,
8:37 pm
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 was to
8:38 pm
reclaim their stories. ah, one of the last of the 20 to that day was pretty handsome. 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 who 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
8:39 pm
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 media, his ex wife in new jersey for 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. it ended up in there. they should know out there in for 3 years, being in albert einstein, hospital just, you know,
8:40 pm
going through their medical procedures for 3 years. putting him in a cold box poem out cut them up, put, and 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 a the medical examiner's 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. mm hm. so the hospitals work in the mood, the medical examiner,
8:41 pm
which is working with hard to island. you know, they obviously don't want people to know most of 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. were 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 into any machine, depending on it's an extension of traditional time. the defenders have always been one step behind the attackers. formidably william was won't go to function in law. so it's not a matter of, if it happens, it's
8:42 pm
a matter of when i ah, and i make no borders line to tease a
8:43 pm
new fresh as emerge. we don't have a terribly, we don't to look back seen the whole world leads to take action and be ready. people are judgment, common crisis with we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way. but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is great. the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together with ah, no, your city is just for vacation. new york city is just to come and have fun
8:44 pm
in your city is not a place actually be living in sloughing in packaging. and so 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, don't 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 with truth. one of the issues to the city here, katrina is if we establish here that they don't know, there are other cases like yours that are out there are pending and they don't want
8:45 pm
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 a city. so they're part of their delay is to not let this case come to trial because there are other cases that are gonna fall shortly behind. tampa. i feel that they really don't know much because all they thinking is about the money. and honestly like has said a lot of this for money. i want my son back there. say lou, what we know right now from, from the record. so we have decided to autopsy was performed the body at some point was at the more. mm. we do have some in the, 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
8:46 pm
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 gonna 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 a unique and crazy place. so most likely i was no matter how much recycling didn't ever happen is 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 been the focus of my case has always been about getting those answers. i guess we're gonna keep right in that i need answers.
8:47 pm
why, why do my thoughts on this come to holly? she joined the union the chain for one cry to the free. equal me terry it. 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 honda ourselves with many questions about our daughter. so we hoped to bring closure to our family. and to bri, ana,
8:48 pm
love and respect to a soul that we haven't had the opportunity to honor properly for almost 50 years to this day. should i 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
8:49 pm
respect and some type of fitting memorial statue over on hot allan 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
8:50 pm
a truth about america, about the western world, perhaps that this tremendous inequality not only still exists but has, has widened. bjork still house to draw it still a named conjure with it still sounds musical. no to people in some distant part of the 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 hair listening nor care about. mm.
8:51 pm
that is why you trash is york city forces monster. you have to fight you have to actually rush with the city in order to just get the very basic necessities of life. ah. and so if the city having something on its conscience, this is a rather small blot, frankly. i mean to with all honor to the dead, they are dead. ah, i think that city is always wanted to forget about hard island city is wanted to
8:52 pm
forget about the people who are buried there, wanting to forget about the fact that there is a potter's field that there is a place where difficult stories are hidden me in new york city is celebrated as the place where anyone can achieve their dreams. but those dreams haven't been achieved by everyone. ah, it's true people toiling away, digging out the tunnels for sideways or building our skyscrapers. me. mr. people who wound up homeless or because a society shown to them as happened during the aids epidemic. oh, those stories might not be flattering to tell even more. it might tell us things about our present that we'd rather face,
8:53 pm
ah, we all it to the people who had been very there and are being buried there to bring their stories to light. ah, so a my bill i to the jurisdiction of hard island a. i believe that we're at a place where we could finally, the momentum is growing to make hard island a public place that is not forgotten. ah, 10000000 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

8:59 pm
made it suddenly become optimal for lobster. our population here is exploded. one of the most valuable fisheries that's ever existed. suddenly you had me and canadian fishermen in these waters at the same time jousting for position and attention. so high violence is bound to happen. this is the last land border dispute between canada and the united states. it could be magnified to the point where there could be costs that would be significant to host countries. quarter dispute don't go away. they just fester. something's going to happen. who are all driven by dreamers shaped interest in
