this woman is part of the nation of islam. a radical muslim organization that promotes the superiority of the black race. in the heart of the swiss alps this is a place probably more secretive than the pentagon more mysterious than the cia and better guarded than for. customs i hear but honestly all the science is controlled by them and they imposed the opening time so it was it it was a do these films all plus the procedures in place of the strictest in all europe must to pieces by artists like picasso and modigliani camped boards and sold in the
side this warehouse that's where the report comes in it covers up deals which are not naturally discreet commercially discreet step but also discreet secrets they concern fraud. some of those paintings are linked to dark secrets nobody knows how many of these secrets a kept inside the geneva freeport such you'll never obtain an inventory of all the works in the freeport who knows how many there are three hundred three thousand three hundred thousand is it a matter of confidentiality only or is it the world's black box of the art business . hello my name's peter and i've been living in bushnell for about seven years and
this is a film about just some of the crazy things i've got soaked through in the time. i get that's. all i need to listen to on their store duty because. i still does not if i. here's what people have been saying about redacted and i suspect it's full on author of the only show i go out of my way to lunch you know
a lot of the really packed a punch. yampa is the john oliver of marty america's got the same we are apparently better than booth the thing that i see maybe you never heard of love right back to the night was president of the world bank take it to the last minute seriously send us an e-mail. in new orleans two centuries of slavery have left painful scars within the african-american community. that accounts for two thirds of the town's population moreover that african-americans feel that they were abandoned during hurricane katrina. in two thousand and five and the pressure of the water dozens of poorly maintained levees broke. mud flooded eighty percent of the town that was under sea level. today the town still bears the scars of the disaster especially in the poor
neighborhoods. aka the dancing that is here one of the most devastated areas. he believes that nothing has been done to rehabilitate this neighborhood. i. just found out i. got ten years after it's me. this is only one of about twenty thousand. that twenty thousand that's like. pray. for aaron has a bend in the area so the reason for the increased crime rate. this is a. black neighborhood a high crime neighborhood become a crime in
a web of trumps wherever you got drugs. african american people the flow speed with the situation of the country no job no food if you're not easy. if you now the. one a situation. you will go to the street the hungry people will do the stream. since the hurricane criminality has increased by forty percent. on the other side of the city we encounter a different atmosphere. louisiana is a former french colony and the most touristy area really is the french quarter. arena tourists from all around the world gather to find. a lot of.
access. to. my mind. and of course here jazz is everywhere. mars with dance floors are in every corner. but for the last two. this neighborhood is also played by violence last year one person was killed and nine were injured in a shoot out in the middle of the french quarter. and another night a man attempts to kidnap a drunk girl. man tries to stop him.
but the aggressor points and it was the end of. the man begs for mercy. dresser shoots him in the stomach then tries to kill him. luckily his weapon jams. the shooter takes flight. the men will survive this incident. the aggressor you're a cain twenty one has already been charged with rape and robbery. you'll be arrested two days later. by night these types of aggressions are multiplying especially in restaurants which have become new targets for the criminals. the pathway is a fancy restaurant. six months ago the own choosing and his team were the victims of an armed robbery. as lorenzo general manager. fellow for the back right up front you know. how you do it it's
a riot. yeah on that day the restaurant was packed like it is tonight. the security cameras have recorded the whole scene. there were three robbers. one guy came in and maybe a second had two seconds later two guys came in behind him the first and then the second guy came in that area telling me to go rounds the first day and he wanted to hear the register. right here in the drawer. for a second put a gun to his head made it go to the ground they got this is not a job now or what else. play in carries a gun but he chose not to use it on that night avoiding a bloodbath it's the threat of being shot or killed that's the it's not a wallet it's not
a cellphone it's not money it's not stealing my car it's someone gets shot and there's no other option do you carry a gun to know it's a difficult issue though because i'm not for it but in a mill you like this worse there are so many dangerous people with guns it makes sense for people those guns to protect themselves. in the united states the gun issue is a sensitive subject. for protection are they responsible for the increasing number . in new orleans more and more people chose to arm themselves. to. play. brennan forty years old former police officer. he doesn't leave the house without his arsenal and i'm going to just go right on the waistband.
all the medical evidence is really very simple it just has what we call combat balls this particular gauze has a static agent. you know he in the not only saw they both have this wave opening feature which imagine my my pocket here got this little hook as i go to pull this out the pocket this little hook catches the inside of the pants and it opens it automatically as a whole and out so i can i can defend myself from either side maybe a push against a wall in a side i'm not able to get this knife so i can get to this one or vice versa. like most people in new orleans brennan was traumatized by katrina. at the time he was still a police officer get to face chaos. it's as if you know right there's the mississippi river this is all part of the levee system there was a breach in a levee where one of the oil tanker barges hit it and with that there was some oil so it was really nasty down here.
disaster. when you have adversity at the level that katrina was that's when those true call the start coming out. of family members to dallas to evacuate and when i was coming back into the city in dallas texas i had in a p.d. units passing me leaving the city police officers never returned. and now we're you know we're very low on manpower dangerously low not only for the citizens but for the department themselves i mean these guys are you know we look we get more and more people shoot up police is just it's never seen more that than i've ever seen before. obsessed with safety. he transformed his car into a real armory. bucky all of this stuff handy just in case again something crazy happens active shooter as a you know concealed carry permit also keep a rifle is the actually technically a pistol but i keep something that's
a little bit bigger than i keep additional ammunition as well as a body armor medical equipment. the stuff that i would simply need to see an active shooter at a school or something like that and then also just keep kind of general preparedness stuff vehicle maintenance stuff tools things for spare flat tires a water fluids for the vehicle general maintenance stuff that you know probably everybody should have in their vehicle. after quitting the police brennan chose to open a gun shop. you can find everything here from an automatic gun to an a k forty seven. but in the red is are going oh oh how far is the range zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero for letting us know a little bit with the growing insecurity about brennan christmas is flourishing
because like especially considering that in louisiana arm sales are deregulated cool clothes you know if you anything i love you would say you have gone. and you carry it with you you have it on you today and you're sure it's ok so you feel in danger. even if. you know. in this town the number of firearms is booming. their sales doubled the last ten years. but a new orleans. man has found another solution the weapons to fight criminality. it's in the heart of the french quarter that live city tourist a forty year old millionaire. he made a fortune in the garbage disposal service. i drive you know rat today. a good quote i heard ninety thousand herb by.
merely. his house had been burglarized several times so sydney decided to invest part of his fortune into the security of the french quarter. he created a unique and. it allows people to send real time information to the policeman of the neighborhood. he's prostitution drug dealing you see so you take the side and you can take a picture and send it and it goes directly here it's like having a police officer in your pocket. although once again this is a crime just came in over the radio and they say they've sent a picture here you see a suspicious person dolphin and governor nichols and they took a picture of him see him on the corner you see him on the ground they act like
they're sleeping but they're they actually rob people when you walk. his idea was born after his conflict with the mayor of new orleans. publicly accused of being in active in front of the rise of criminality i tried to get a meeting with the mayor and he wouldn't meet with me so i made a thirty second commercial and i started putting it all over the t.v. calling the mayor out on the crime in the cities the french quarter is under siege by criminal the problem can be it is only six blocks by thirteen. you may as well advised me to come in this clip from the millionaire office driving the violence in the city and every sane way to deal with garbage like. we should hope for the misery for there was a real provocation. and so he didn't like it and he took offense to it he made millions and millions and millions of dollars off a garbage contract in the french quarter and maybe he should just to get some of that money and do it himself if he thinks it's so easy it's just not like i decided
to follow his advice and invested several hundred thousand dollars to create the french quarter task force a unit that works directly with the task force you download it and you're able to connect police do exactly this was something that was launched just days ago in tonight's businessman city tour today the young millionaire has become a star in the american media. you know who as you can see had way last gray white black and blue. this afternoon as yet another t.v. interview. has become a reference in the fight against criminality. you know it's not just a lot of people in jail for arresting our way out it's that it has to we have to
have programs the mayor the city the citizens work together. if we receive so much. it's because is that there's a real success in this neighborhood criminality is down by forty five percent. when lawmakers manufactured them sentenced to public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the famous merry go round of lives only the one percent. in the whole middle of the room six. million real news is.
