the warring factions and it could further radicalize separatist groups torture and death in the burning of settlements. parts of the country many have fled and in the last year there's been a 30 percent increase in the number of people who need 8 humanitarian needs and cameroon has never been greater in the south west northwest in particular we have witnessed the emergence of a new crisis characterized by numerous abuses and violations of human rights exacerbating hammerings problems is the militant islamic group of. spices have repeatedly attacked parts of the country in what's been a decades long armed campaign in its attempts to establish an islamic caliphate but all of these problems have roots that reach far into cameron's past a former german colony france and the u.k. were given the mandate to look after the area following the 1st world war then in the 1960 s. france and the british finally gave the territories their independence to former

colonies which had been ruled in very different ways became a single state haven't quite got the origin of it obviously is a clue. and. the global powers are aware of but there is no real effort to want to involve. the shot for pretty stout that comes through that independent country and should be. more from mike to keep close tabs on. to be honest. with you there was a clue. between. government and the french government to ensure that. people. who remain in the country. don't look back in. that situation. i think. the colonial hangover on many countries whether it's. coming.
2:06 am
now in other news california's governor has signed a new law limiting the use of force by police officers when making arrests officers will only be able to use lethal force if they believe there is an imminent imminent threat of death or injury the new law also makes it easier to prosecute police officers who abuse their power they could face criminal charges civil liability or disciplinary action or the law changed as a recent study does find that police brutality is one of the top saying causes of death among young american men martin has this report a word of warning though you might find some of its content upsetting. the killing of unarmed african-americans at the hands of law enforcement has been an issue that dominated headlines in the united states for years names like michael brown eric garner and samir rice bring back memories of mass protest movements and rising
2:07 am
anger from the black community and concerned citizens. the. latest statistics reveal just how systemic the problem of police violence could be police fire this is a leading cause of death for young men in the united states over the life course about one in every 1000 black men can expect to be killed by police risk of being killed by police peaks between the age of 20. is and 35 years for men and women and for all racial and ethnic groups in fact dying at the hands of law enforcement is the 6th leading cause of death think about it american police officers take more young lives than diabetes influenza and most diseases only car accidents suicide homicide heart disease and cancer kill more young americans than police officers
2:08 am
it's almost like interactions with the police or becoming a public health crisis or a drug epidemic the style of the ring forces coast to treat police violence as a public health issue racially unequal exposure to the risk of seat violence has profound consequences for public health democracy and racial stratification of course police authorities maintain that they do everything in their power to exercise restraint take the case of tony tampa a 32 year old living in dallas texas he called the police himself to say that he was off his medication for schizophrenia and then he needed help after the police arrived responding to his own call they restrained him they laughed at his pleas and he eventually stopped breathing. but. only. if i rolled and rolled. b you know just got here. in new york city the subways and billboards warn the public about dangerous
2:09 am
diseases like diabetes there was even a controversial subway ad campaign warning about the results of teen pregnancy so with police being the 6th leading cause of death for young men in the united states should a similar public awareness campaign be waged we decided to ask people here in new york city i don't thing that i would hope i thing with proper training would help maybe you know train these police like to understand how to take care of lives you know that's what is needed i think more. a more useful public service announcement would probably be about advocating for the. knowing all your rights and knowing how to talk to police in an encounter knowing that it's legal to record it record them doing their job in all states those kind of public service announcements might might be more useful in my book issue with or with people being killed at the hands of police officers in the usa yeah i think it's 5050 to be honest even playing 5050 meaning like place officers pass away as well as perpetrators and that's just
2:10 am
a shame that's our society the us public seems pretty aware that the country has a problem with police violence these statistics weren't really shocking to the people we spoke to mop and r.t. new york. we also spoke with a former police officer dominicans though he says the needs to be tougher entry requirements for joining the force. raise your standards it's not enough it's not a popular opinion along foresman i truly believe today's day and age that law enforcement officers need to be a minimum of 30 i don't want to see cops at the age of 21 anymore i think that's not a mental state of where they're ready to go at the human brain doesn't evolve until you're 25 years old i'd like to see that done i'd like to see if you're going to train them better i'd like to see the standard for pay increase i'd like to see command staff go back to law enforcement for the constitution versus patrol for profit there's a lot of things i would like to see change inside of there but i would also like to see the public more held accountable i'm all for the demands of law enforcement being more ruthless it is a job that requires a more critical eye and
2:11 am
a more critical watch but you have to have the public being willing to do their fair share too because some robert peel zog 7 principle 9 principles of policing is the police of the public in the public or the police so therefore are part of the same cohesive unit and they have to work together. in a straight or a former defense lawyer faces jail of the controversially the afghan files see a page in the supreme court on thursday for initial hearings they've movement bryde release classified material in 2017 alleging that destroyed committed war crimes in afghanistan and was charged with breaching the country's defense act and is expected to face trial next year he claims it was his charity to the australian people to make the documents public. i've got a few tricks up my sleeve it's worth having a go i might fail but i'll be happy in jail if i've tried but among the incidents reported to the so-called afghan files were the killing of
2:12 am
a civilian man and his son during a raid where it was alleged they were shot by mistake in another case an afghan detainees was shot dead while he was alone with an australian soldier from an upright claim that before leaking the information to the media to try to bring it to the attention of officials but his efforts were in vain we discussed the issue with the former cia officer turned whistle blower john kerry attack. it's so typical it's so common in places like the united states the u.k. australia really the 5 eyes countries to attack the whistleblower rather than to address the crime and to punish those who committed the crime there ought to be hard and fast whistleblower protection laws there are in many countries there is not even in australia but there really need to be legal protections so people can can go confidently to their supervisors or to their legislature or even
2:13 am
to the media to report crimes in this case so i think that that the australian soldiers involved were probably i'm not even sure how to say it but sucked into the same kind of of word time situation that so many americans have been sucked into you think that you can get away with things you think that they aren't crimes and eventually there's going to be a whistleblower you know there's there's an old saying that the truth always comes out and i think that that is the case it was the case here it's been the case the united states whether it cia or n.s.a. or f.b.i. the truth always comes out and so if you don't want trouble just do the right thing . still ahead fetus astrally in patterns in the sky jail after a fee can dyess left a child with a man nourished will have enough of the store. just after the break.

a lot of big get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. want to. have to go right to be close this is what before. camp you get. interested in the waters of. the poseidon adventure mixed with the titanic. loss all sinking of the global economy right now we've got donald trump starring with the ghost of paul newman on the bridge of the titanic watching engineer colazal failure with the global economy.
2:15 am
welcome back you with r.t. now if you can couple from a child was found to be seriously malnourished after being placed on a vegan diets have the sky. judge handed them $300.00 was community service instead according to police the baby was severely underweight after being placed on the wii you can die from. opes and. she weighed less than 5 kilograms suffered major problems with her bones and was hardly able to move doctors said she had only developed as much as a 3 month old baby and had no teeth because of a lack of necessary vitamins the parents face huge criticism for not thinking of
2:16 am
the consequences of their actions. the fire apparently discharge is not a parental responsibility to take charge by providing the necessities of life causing a danger of serious injury is undoubtedly very serious conduct particularly where the child is very young and he's unable to independently care for himself or herself and all one put in fact out of you that there is no greater responsibility and then by a parent to his or her char to care for the child to nurture the child and to protect the child from any harm or injury caring for the go was caring for a very young baby she couldn't sit up she couldn't speak any words she couldn't feed herself hold a bottle she couldn't play was to spend the day in her court running back and forth she couldn't roll over all the way. this case did raise the question of whether it is appropriate to use beacon diets for small children despite the protests some
2:17 am
experts including those in the american academy of pediatrics do think it is acceptable and can actually be good for children however not everybody agrees we discuss the issues with judy more she's a registered dietitian and nutritionist and also patrick holden the founding director of the sustainable food trust. the contact between health as it is now with our health services is quite poor. and children aren't seeing nearly as regularly or as often as they used to day say 10 or 15 years a care and i think that's one of the problems that house for the sisters just can't keep keep an eye on the on the number of children that they've got on that case larry we need to keep a vigilant eye on people who for the probably the best reasons are misguided late feeding their children unhealthy diets it's possible to keep the child health a batch they do need supplements you can't just rely on if you can diet yes we need
2:18 am
to eat less meat but don't give up put together the right kind of meat and that's good for your health even if you do all that and you help and somebody helps you plan the very last you're channeling greg to their height their genetically potential height because we believe that milk protein and meat processing also are frank an important factor in growth probably very challenging and you have to be an expert in this to get it right and i would argue that perhaps it's not necessary to be quite so extreme as i have seen several reagan parents who come to me and say they want to bring up their challenge the gun and once we talk it through and i explain the implications of it and have plans for right to be in the planning of the doc most of them decide against it but i would say that most of them that i've seen race and they will either the last 2 or 3 years and not getting the going because of their environmental concerns there's a lot of worry at the moment about what does that that is correct for addressing
2:19 am
climate change and all the other problems with facing is what we would argue that it is possible to eat sustainably to include a whole range of sustainably produced livestock or us in the diet without feeling a little guilty about it and probably your ready children would be better off with a void of age and not have. very young children and let the children decide when they're old enough maybe after their great spirit is finished with a trauma begin dash or not and in the mean time allow them to eat a full. diet full of all the. food groups we can address climate change both easy or system. that china has unveiled a new round of tariffs on u.s. goods prompting a furious reaction from president trump in a series of tweets he ordered american firms to leave china and vowed to end what he called an unfair trading relationship. we don't need china and frankly would be
2:20 am
far better off without them the vast amounts of money mesdames stolen by china from the united states year after year for decades will and must stop our great american companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to china including bringing your companies home and making your products in the us while the us president also announced yet another tariff hike starting from october 250000000000 dollars worth of chinese goods will be taxed at 30 percent that's up from 25 percent and then from next month the remaining $300000000000.00 worth of imports will be subject to a 15 percent tariff that's also up 5 percent so it is the latest escalation in a tit for tat trade war that has been ongoing for months but before crumbs and management china didn't valle plans to slap duties of 5 to 10 percent on $75000000000.00 worth of american goods and those will take effect in 2 stages in
2:21 am
september and then in december will stock markets have been rattled by the stand off the dow jones more than 600 points on friday sparking fears of a new recession we asked 2 economists for their views on who will be hardest hit by the tariffs. it's just the the degree to which both sides lows this comes at a difficult time for donald trump not so much for china china's economy has been in a downturn since the last quarter of 2018 at that it was mainly for domestic cyclical reasons then of course the trade war on the tariff skim along but the chinese did manage to stabilize the economy by providing growth stable automatic stabilisers and have kept it in the 6 percent range the u.s. at that point of time was booming economically but that boom is beginning to wear out and in fact it is the economy is softening and people are saying that it might head towards a recession next year so this comes at a bad moment for donald crumb going into his reelection campaign that there's
2:22 am
greater on sort of tea and aggravation on this front which is going to hurt investor and investment sentiment in this economy and the president knows he can't order u.s. businesses to do anything of the sort i think the language was just was typed in a moment of anger but you see the attitude that he thinks that he is american trade abroad that it's not about the people doing business it's about him setting rules and playing a chess game with the chinese premier it's not surprising at this point that. the president is in a sense tweeting the market down and he announces these moves kind of impulsively via twitter and i think you're seeing markets correctly respond very negatively to this if he wants to say that those tax cuts were good for the economy than this is
2:23 am
you know disastrously almost catastrophic lee bad for china isn't the only target of u.s. tariffs because trump is threatened a new levies on french wine too like they've never seen before that is in response to taxes on american tech companies trample speed. before heading to france for the upcoming change 7 summit. has ordered an assessment of the threat posed by a new u.s. missile the russian president also boarded a symmetrical response to the recently tested weapon saying at the same time though that moscow doesn't want to get involved in a new destructive arms race or the tests were conducted just 2 weeks after the u.s. pulled out of the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty the i.n.f. was signed back in 1970 between america and the u.s.s.r. and banned missiles of the kind tested by the us washington exited the treaty earlier this month claiming russia had violated it something moscow denies in fact
2:24 am
the russian president did allege that those accusations were just cover for america's own breaches and intention to quit the i.m.f. . the americans have orchestrated a propaganda campaign alleging violations by russia bots as it's now clear this was just a smokescreen to hide washington's own breaches of the treaty and its intention to leave it this all leaves 0 doubt about america's real intentions haven't got rid of the existing limits it's now free to deploy previously forbid missiles anywhere in the world top american politicians say that you systems could be deployed firstly the asia pacific region but this affects our interests as well because it is situated near our borders. let me putin is also referring to comments made earlier this month by the u.s. secretary of defense who hinted at the deployment of u.s. missiles to the asia pacific region china has already warned of retaliation because nicky director of the nuclear studies institute at the american university says the
2:25 am
demise of the i.n.f. treaty is a serious matter that we place over the last thing the world is another insane 1008 style nuclear arms race is really going on from the 19th fifty's through the next you know eighty's but if we get rid of the there's only one piece left of the arms control architecture that's the new start treaty that expires in february 2021 alton has already said that it's worth less and he wants to get rid of it has indicated the same we're ready have about $14000.00 nuclear weapons in the world that's enough to end life on the planet many times over and so people have got to take this very very seriously and begin to try to control crazies people who are willing to gamble with the end of life on our planet. finally a russian space ship carrying. a robot cosmonauts called feed or has failed to dock
2:26 am
with the international space station russian space agency does say a docking system our function these are pictures of just a few moments ago morse is currently discussing what to do next to settle the problem robot food or to visit the ice s. is supposed to last 17 days it will perform a number of g.t.c. up there like checking the spacecraft and the ocean since it's. really you're good . but always good pictures to look at and that's how the news is looking so far today we're back again in just over half an hour. last.

2:28 am
a round the experimentation field for agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments that often in day you have many of these people have one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can. get away with this because the people have less political.
2:29 am
coverage back to the night camp as you can tell we aren't taping with a live audience this week instead we thought we'd bring you a little best of redacted tonight 29 team don't worry we'll be back with a brand new show next week but without further delay here are some of our greatest hits from this year and joy says. let's start off tonight with a topic some of you might not have heard of but i think it's important it's called if i'm pronouncing this correctly racism. and if you live in my home state of virginia it is all the rage right now right i mean that's to call her right apparently if you're an elected official in virginia hating black people is the new black it is hot. and some forms of racism are easy to say such as.
2:30 am
but although you know luckily though they did cover up some of it with the sheet but. other racism systemic racism is not as obvious and a lot of people try to claim it no longer exists elegance gone what well like systemic racism black panther was the most popular movie adversaries therefore racism over well i want to show you 3 recent studies that prove just how over systemic racism is let's start with schools all right slightly important couple of weeks ago as new education reform found overwhelmingly white school districts received 23000000000 dollars more than predominately nonwhite school districts in state and local funding in 2016 despite serving roughly the same number of children i mean the kids of the wider schools are doing their homework on a mac books a lot is supplied by the school while the don white school kids are doing their homework on a big mac.
