first that they have been because of violence it was like you know it was a shotgun but we came together. the second one it was odd but we still came to get it in a day when everybody just seemed just and just split up. one thing we do citizens one thing we tend to do is dehumanised human beings so we talk in terms of how many people were murdered norms what are the numbers so what do we do about that mindset what do we do you mean eyes murder the only way that we
could think to do it was to name them each day is listed on a board with the name of the person there is a huge and how they were killed without respect to where they're from what their color is what they did or did not do for a living whether they graduated or didn't for moscow where they deal in drugs or not you don't know if you look a bit bored. shit like someone. was my. shah sometimes i look at our little church or our little walls and say you know how much wall space do i have here after a while this will get to look celie and stuff like that i suppose when we look more like maybe milwaukee and a half million people and they killed fifty three people not two hundred fifty the . los lobos.

small as murder rate but in the course of fifty years over ten thousand people have been murdered and since two thousand and five more people have been killed than those who lost their lives when the levees broke. at this moment there is a battle being waged each and every day on the streets of new orleans it is a battle for the heart and soul of this great city by the time you wake up tomorrow morning i will have likely received another message. the worst part of my day that says exactly the same thing mr mayor was sorry to inform you that earlier this evening police officers responded to gunshots when they arrived on the scene they found a young african-american male face jail in blood gunshots in the back of his head he was announced dead on arrival there are no witnesses.

break the whole basketball game going to go on shoes they are like nothing but a crown thanks. i think all police crooked though i would want to know some of them are bad but not not all of them because i met some police officers and say i fit the description. description and i saw a man. let him play i don't want to beg her on but to close this thing i can steal your typing by saying all of them a bit because that'll be done with someone new to me they start with so many times they go to call here by me like yeah yeah i'm a gangster that's what happened against theirs they get pulled over by the cops you know when really i'm not really a gangster is maybe still like that you know it made me feel like i was i wouldn't even wanted to my own society.
might be pretty shortly to say. you know you saw the. man may be. i was just a little. bit ahead of the valuation. for those who do get arrested the rollies the courthouse in orleans parish prison known as opie p c c interviews two brothers about being locked up you have been all be. right there your parents about would be. right at the clearly the air mess does
doesn't when you know. most the no beef with them. are a fill throughout the list of might be to get it up as a case of. when you were black in the cell for twenty three hours i do need to get one hour of free for. oh how did that make you feel. i don't want to cage them and they are like their niggaz in a sale and they're told to sell just get it how you live don't you think that is one of the most extreme examples of the city's arrest mentality is a story of kevin griffin very first run in with the first offense ten years old never done anything remotely as bad i got a lot of fights as a kid you know without the children but never so this experience and kevin was a kid he was cornered by three bullies he broke a bottle to the finish and the short blinded one of the boys kevin was arrested and
tried for attempted murder my legal came to court drunk every b. he greet the alcohol every time so i don't have a great defense kevin served five years in it to lure you prison and not the easy and it was a lot of that a lot of thinking going on you know is like wind me a lot and then by me being a christian i was like a lot of tall going to get out and leave next but mason is like i'm ten and i'm sitting here say oh. i'm so. all i can run circles around kevin into the place more brutal than the place he left behind a lot by guards a lot of chaos among among the four inmates there as well but a lot of the stem from the abuse from from the guards a few years out to kevin's release to lulu prison was closed down for mistreatment of makes by the department of justice what assistance from the juvenile justice project of louisiana you know there's
a lot of misconceptions about what are the most effective ways to reduce juvenile crime or to improve public safety across the board well we too often see is putting more money into building more prisons or you know the solution is more police officers on the street. wealthy british style it's time to. find. markets why not scandals. find out what's really happening to the global economy in the kinds of reports. you cannot preemptively restrict your freedoms because of the fear of what something or how something might be used everything that has ever been developed has been used for a bad purpose baseball bats which are fun for you know for baseball players to hit
balls you know they've also been used to beat people to death or i mean we just cannot restrict ourselves because something might be years you know in the wrong way. millions around the globe struggle with hunger each good. what if someone offers a lifetime food supply no charge. they can very strong against. and we think that. the genetic anymore the fate products are a priest. there is no. evidence that there's any problem with genetic engineering when you make a deal. or is free cheese always in the most trash i don't think that. for anybody free. enterprise is profit.
to. fifty. civilians that question in the crossfire between al qaeda linked militants under rocket troops one expert tells us the divisions called by the american led invasion is the real cause of the cold. a u.k. government report says it's miters on the imminent threat because the public no longer knows what it's for example how it got to this point. in time and nice you want to make most of it you're one hundred percent committed. also you need the family behind russia's sledge talking in our latest report on the national party scene pairing to take on all comers at the winter games in sochi.
