8:06 pm
south africa that we see today. i'm difficult to beat the flooding in from ohio to the wild ride in this country by david cameron. he called month at a towering think that a true political here and sets a great life has gone out. but this is all of them run around. justin has had to make amends for example in ninety seven moffatt said his son timothy terrorists said that the anc can never rule south africa anyone who's to say was that when patrick and that is david cameron is also around that might make a trip to south africa as a rising star in the consent to meet friends at anzac day when milk being a king sanctions on the apartheid me and said miss acne. i'm still not done that i still can a way that
8:07 pm
david cameron was cussing in full but suddenly feel my face and he builds two wallets and it was a cynic might say bring the usb not to be even more today because of his rehabilitation if you died at ninety let my dad was on that evidence and he and his face is when the news that takes place in snow as late as two thousand and eight. but knowing it's off to his presidency of south africa was already a bath that was our team's laura smith reporting. an ona arms mentally ill man has just been charged with assault an incident where police officers shot killing innocent bystanders near times square. the man being charged is glenn brought snacks and police are holding an axe fall for the injuries because they say he instigated the incident the altercation started when brought max walked into traffic at a manhattan intersection and jumped into the path of on coming cars at that point police officers trying to do team and soon after brought max recent was hot day and officers assumed he was reaching for and on. so they
8:08 pm
fired and mistakenly shot to win in nearby drive back says boy here is claiming that his client was emotionally disturbed say he suffers from anxiety depression and possible solutions the attorney for one of the wounded bystanders has said this about the charges it's an incredibly unfortunate use of prosecutorial discretion to be prosecuting a man who didn't even enter my mind it's the police and injured my mind. regardless the mail from dr max has been set at one hundred thousand dollars and the two officers have been placed on administrative leave. when brian acts to suffering as a result of mental illness is also people like bobby bennett and mentally ill man who was shot four times by a police officer despite the fact that he showed no threat for us kelly thomas homeless man who was beaten back by six officers who responded to a cruel bottom and jiggling car
8:09 pm
door handles in a tree in the parking lot. turns out thomas was suffering from severe schizophrenia. and of course there was that he said miriam carry on connecticut mother was shot to death after trying to ram her car for a white house theory or later it was discovered that kerry was suffering from postpartum psychosis. it's altered patients like these that are beginning to call into question just how police are trained to deal with the mentally l to discuss us a little bit more i'm chewing earlier by neil bar but a civil rights attorney. i first asked him whether it's mandatory for all police departments across the country to train the police force on how to respond to the mentally ill the country. each apartment from his own rules and regulations songs. at this point were they all have such regulations. it is clear that each and every of our show and sadly for standpoint that it's essential that people who may have mental
8:10 pm
illness when they saw her mental illness or to temporarily as it should rest assured that they have the opportunity to come with an encounter with police as a way. equally important offices themselves because they are properly trained are they going to miss a test of a situation in and also sells and officers armed with a star. officers who are exposed to that knowledge what does that training will apply to look like or what might you think that it would look like and would use a credit way. the train i should deal with the ball with the understanding that generally times on your side and also the fact that the goalkicking to de escalate situations and keep theas calm as possible. now that the majority of these are all trained officers and how to de escalate and the sun usually invite into your support group will restore sovereignty or just mere presence long and it
8:11 pm
used to think about us driving on a highway you see a police vehicle alongside the highway. it is to slow down and tested gotten more rationally and in one of the vehicle wasn't there this is in contact with the presence of police who are on fall break out more some would argue that police officers don't always know the suspect as a mental illness and that it's hard for them to distinguish between someone who is ellen perhaps someone who is under the influence of drugs for example when you make of that argument. put it best when it results in two police officers are new to the war and other professions. it's less essential because you not doing work in amherst police generally encounter people but quite often police encounter people with emotional disturbance they're going to read and a close distance to most people then i saw the fire. we have three cases right now where police shot and killed each of the individuals and they were not respond to a crime in on what one is soccer channel and senior high plains of the other one is
8:12 pm
and will allow crews to reach though. an advantage due to circumstances the police were called their ball into the circumstances mr cruise and mr police were called and i loved ones who were concerned about their family members. because private committee. mr chamberlain was sixteen year old retired marine. on the channel and happen to roll over and can trigger this might be mistaken as a pendant that was designed to allow him to call for assistance to the medical emergency. so there are none of these individuals for rent the police to be alright. now all i need somebody that i'm not sure if you're familiar with that i his mother did call the police department to come home with her son she couldn't handle it on her own she specifically wanted and that he had a mental ratio of course we know that he was vigorously shot there and there is something more as a family member she was suppose to do to prevent that from happening or did she do all the cut. well she probably
8:13 pm
the only good because unfortunately we are not trained in how to deal with mental illness of the other issues that the police department. i am available for couples and utilize a call because this is true and sometimes it is a protocol in place and the department legal citizen of britain or choose not to employ it they have the proper protocol in place the medical profession along with them. and so long we've been able to assess the situation and determine exactly what was necessary so that everybody could and could leave and come say the active assistance they were there because he was committing a crime. right exactly. what's your guess as to why the police officers in this incident team didn't seem to act with any kind of sensitivity. i mean do you think there's a breakdown in the way that that information is communicated to the police officers or is it just like the setting of her ignoring the fact that he has a mtal mess. ruling was announced in a way because we all know
8:14 pm
what transpires between the initial call for assistance and the message to the police themselves ashley receipt so you can call and say that you had in her bungalow in london alone time you're concerned about their wellbeing we all know what the police dispatchers and did you hear the radio on and i wanted. he also was the person is in the home and this may be the most critical point is that the person in hong kong weeks. that was nailed by the civil rights attorney. cool and is in the hot seat this week after players representing to guantanamo bay detainees for the european court of human rights that they are still in the country for permitting see any black sites to operate and torture their clients on polish soil. uncle rick keene on the sherry and how to convey that are considered high ranking al qaeda operatives before their capture. they claimed they were waterboarding forced to stand in stress positions and went from on executions. nate

the holy see said. among the most damaging concessions developing countries making regional and bilateral agreements are those enhancing the monopoly is on the life saving medicines that reduced access and affordability. and those that provide excess and legal rights to foreign investors remained the policy space for nations to promote sustainable and inclusive development. and it's still ahead here on earth he is a world of birth control medicine may soon expand australian scientists claim they have come up with the birth control pill for men. well what men really interested in taking the pale more on that later break

8:20 pm
politicians manage your work right right vision. if we do the day when men would be takingirth contr pills not that day is finally in sight. scientists in australia say they are closer than ever to developing a nail oral contraceptive. this is coming from a study conducted by researchers at melbourne's monash university through extensive testing on mice researchers discovered that a combined fuel of the proteins responsible for controlling the transport of sperm through the reproductive system. and the investigators say that blocking these proteins had no long term effects on the sexual behavior or function of the male nights that means this could be the answer to achieving temporary male infertility. i
8:21 pm
spoke earlier with elaine listener director of the male contraception information project. i first asked her why we haven't seen a male birth control already. yet when it's not about the biology it's about politics it's about money it's about sociology. i tend to hear. well it's a lot easier to scotland in june and millions of sperm. well that's true if you're taking the same approach in men as has been taken in women which is to try to check things off i'm only on that is difficult to buy. men are different than women in the sperm all alone. it was all too common astana or so. this approach that's been in the news and some other coaches try to get a lot more targeted can't stop it from him that one spot. now that's a fair it's not rocket science scientifically but the problem is that happened and the scale of investment necessary. there have been a lot of studies like this one in the news where someone got
8:22 pm
a three thousand two hundred thousand dollars to try something out and it worked by twenty twenty ago now it takes several million dollars to actually take the steps to get something all the way to market right in the canteen and i had that money is for serenity the town's going forward. they understand that you are familiar with some other kinds of contraception and i have for males out there right now can you talk about a couple of those yet their compliment things that are much farther along than this one called the gentle next on the third inning that to the vast differences in mentioned in last ten or more years and is non hormonal potentially can readers based on a similar one called my son that was developed in india on when we know that doubt it because men have been using that safely for a number of years there's also a method similar to the one thing the press but developed a racially keith college in london. that also and it is a
8:23 pm
pill initial are acting on its called the clean sheets know and i'll leave that to your viewers to put in to get away and he does not demand the us and wanted to be barriers these people have thought that men are not interested but trying to achieve which mean the men who were in power in the nineteen eighties and nineteen seventies and sixties when female contraceptive where developed were not interested. our responsibility now and i'm looking for some control to go with that responsibility charming. in fact there are over eighteen thousand men on the on the link to hear about the clinical trials for the bountiful don't think. i wanted to nap but briefing am i go back to the resurgent anderson as scientists use something called knockout mice i was hoping he could explain the audience what might that were first heel okay what anyone says they have gotten me at the function of a particular
8:24 pm
machine candidate against mice genetically engineered that don't have to teach the women that he was going to do with these might be able to do so. it's very nice a long way from use in humans. the next thing that needs to happen is you need to find a drug that can affect the team. so because you don't wanna go genetically modifying him and not content that can happen for others. now once you find a drug which you can do by something called high throughput screening weight and thousands and thousands of different molecules. if you enter a state which is a long process which is why a male contraception information project we say hey let's look at the work that's already been done and even more intense the ticket and tested in animals. we know it works if the larger animals not just my niece maybe now they are monkeys some of them ethically networking humans and are in fact based on the drug's side
8:25 pm
effects that john has been around for a long time i went into the tunnel and lead after only six more of that but i have one more question before he gets to me i can at last i hear the scientists and doctors can work out the biology which i'm sure this isn't gonna happen for a few more years. i am invariably at the very nice time. it was likely that he is sovereign and will find is this idea started and after leaving. as you know how challenging year and says that needed to be getting mail to serve open up the idea of taking birth control or do you think there's enough demand there that he now it's not that counting i think that they're not meant to be not anybody think the interesting that the men who are are very passionate in to replace law firm and if we offer something that's a lousy as well. women currently napping now. yet men enough to be interesting but they're so that our options out there. a and i'm thinking a lot of men think as well that we should be pursuing. indeed some of it is very lousy not much to
8:26 pm
re master director of the male contraception information project. is resonant we take a look at new york gov cuomo was commissioned to investigate corruption. but what is that exactly to collapse. knew. i was here. investigate corruption in a just released its preliminary report will be shocked to learn that the commission found a of alot of craps in a healer but as i state that the midst of this plan has
8:27 pm
lots of juicy moment. for instance in one of my few moments. the report said that one out of every outlet and legislators to leave office in nineteen eighty nine he had done so under the cloud of ethical or criminal violations. only this time the senate is in the family members who accepted brian's dad owned a store attendant can analyze any duty minutes one of the most entertaining moment is when the airport transit rides a statement made by the council encounter a secret conversation the case for a senator was charged with training pants for a mayoral nomination he said. holiday is all about how much you can do anything with out that in mind. real light bulb moment of the report is when it said that one of the deplorable conduct of officials is perfectly legal. yet profound iraq. he illustrates this
8:28 pm
point in the case at the disgusting taste. my amazement will hold his campaign by conflicts of interest and so much more and eventually a moment where i was late to fix this crap increase the transparency about how it is a time when their relationships with lobbyists and oversight of discretionary funding. ways to overhaul can he find. all of its recommendations are a much needed no greener solution to the high school kid could understand and agree with. i'm not touching moments is when one of the commission's coal shares issued a call to arms. now up to sl to transition into that tiny eight. implementation and legislative action. why would happen naturally. which is so true. we need to write new laws that are filled with legal rights who calls out as a people who benefit from them and never be free legislating against
8:29 pm
corruption would be the most natural thing for politicians to ever do. so who knows if it'll ever happen. that means that for this entertaining record going into this rhetoric gets forgotten maybe the politicians will give it a quick read that i was supposed to be serving the not the bank accounts for just one moment tonight. talk about that. in the end but at the residence. and that does it for now from the stories we covered go to youtube dot com such arts in america check out our website our t dot com sites usa. follow me on twitter and irrigated beginning. you see you. will
8:30 pm
will will will will. i want to assign i'm not keen to sell. it will make as they appeared to be a long friday that gives the government authority to designate the official information as special secrets. it's stiff penalties for those who leaked the information the last time i come to pass the decals the government police and use them as i could get home. the pain increased
