1:30 pm
i think what i would say is the site of the judge is too. in the crudeness of their presentation of the situation so it ties in with the aesthetic of the car which is very crudely drawn and they do the same sort of thing with all sorts of other areas of public life so they have a whole series on work where they present very crude presentations of a particular works and and then ratchet up the block human aspect of that particular situation so it doesn't fit in with their work more broadly so but i haven't said that you know everything you know linda said about the situation is perfectly reasonable and i completely understand it i just think there will be people out there who may think differently and by taking the cod out of circulation or by trying to prevent us from making jokes of this kind i think we do assume that people that all people think the same way and i'm sure linda will appreciate that people do think differently about the subject. absolutely of course we all you know. human beings and hopefully we have
1:31 pm
a variety amongst us of the views are we having a discussion i'm glad there is a discussion i'm tend not to be in favor of banning things but i can assure you i'm not going out there and buying it so that's how my response and i might i think maybe you know british society i don't know about russian society of british society to give thought to somebody who's whose mind is no longer function is as it as it was previously and it causes them their relatives a great deal of pain and for me it's not the subject of humor ok both we have to leave it which was the best season's greetings for this year i'm going to stick to charity cards myself but for now to develop a little get off thanks for joining us on r.t. . ok that is your news for now your next r.t. update in just over half an hour after we experience an unflinching portrait of poverty gang turf wars and the tough job facing the police in one of los angeles
1:32 pm
most notorious districts. so right now we're driving through both neighborhoods and you can see time and distance from each gang. so this is jordan. this is the territory claimed by the green street crips during war time bonnie hunt is no less likely to come in here because this is one way in an art and one way out so once you come in and do a shooting you're trapped in their neighborhood and they can return fire so it's not the safest way to to avenge a shooting so often they'll go on the outskirts of the neighborhood hoping to get a great street kripke that's a lot of times when innocent people get shot. so in the next couple of days someone
1:33 pm
from this development most likely will go over towards nickerson like they have the last couple of days and commit a shooting and vice versa so all these neighborhoods now are in play. for him. several months ago. a gentleman with the moniker of menace from 15 hill was caught inside the gang territory of the village voice a couple of the village boys. went outside jumped on menace beat him down stuffed a minister ask you. and. they took the trash here and brought them back behind another house and tortured them they sodomized them they sliced them up with a machete and when they sliced him up they put in the end his chest the village voice. and then they continued to torture and then they wrapped him up in a rug burned and dumped him in long beach there's one thing about beating
1:34 pm
a guy down or killing them but the torture of the sodomy all that stuff that's that's just what gang members do so they found menace right around here beat him down put him in the trash can and then they will am. to this location here. assault. and torture i'm. not concerned with people watching them commit crimes or being prosecuted because of. they'll go after witnesses they'll intimidate them and if they have to the old even try to kill them you can see how they're marking up their neighborhood village voice. my personal opinion is a lot of gangs get a sympathetic ear to the general public and when the public's posed to exactly what these guys do. then everyone agrees that we don't want to in our neighborhood.
1:35 pm
we.
1:36 pm
see. obviously it's been challenging for you and. hard you know to lose a family member. is very hard. he was a little bit drunk he drank that night and then the next morning me i didn't hear from him and i was a will and that's weird and i'm like you must be really mad at me and i didn't hear from him i didn't know what was going on and then they come up to me that and then and then ok what's going on why i mean what i do and then i'm like thinking like in my head like ok i haven't done anything bad and i haven't done anything that i can think of anything and asking all where we got last night and the 1st thing that pops into my head what's going on what's wrong with what you know i told him and he was he came is he in jail is he like her what's wrong with that like the last thing i thought of him was what was wrong with him you know in the last thing and then towards the end they tell me ok we're going to take it and. who did we found his
1:37 pm
body. dolphin after i heard was that i didn't hear anything else like that they were just like it would really make no more use going on it's not true. you. know and then i just don't remember anything after that after that i remember i was crying and they not believing it i still don't like to they don't really believe it's going to compound that can be truly cannot be true but. they say it gets better to get those winds rosie king's i was it for as we just everyone would say old he was young he wasn't even 21 year and eventually we're going to move out on our own we have plans really happened she's awesome she looks like her which is what. i thought and i think when i look around i see him a little bit a piece of him but it's hard at the same time because i don't know why it's just when we're trying to get rosie the life we were never in a month or
1:38 pm
a for her like not to grow up you know because you know what do you think he was raised here for him does was it for him this was basically it like that's it i never got out of here and i want to get out and i do hurdle who is going. yes tell her that he's in a little until her that's what's left of. the . crime. right. there.
1:39 pm
right now to back. up the basketball game a large crowd to hang around the parking lot so we were just there to disperse the crowd because when you get large crowds like that drinking nothing good ever
1:40 pm
happens from that so we were sent down there to make sure that it gets home safely . we only want to. so that's where. i was trying to make. his life there. was some more noble thing with him up until. he has nothing. to say literally roughly on the street. and nothing there was want to rest for one individual who didn't want to go along with the program so we had to rest i'm. sure my little holy son. the cia doing. the c.r.a. story. would know. this from you know. the oldest
1:41 pm
brother to call it doesn't look at this guy they got a. little a good look at it look at us they think they tell us they came in a scuffle. took him down because he was talking. to the same as you want to say and all right to put their hand on him you know as well as some tom some time ago. as black police officer it's definitely different. than again i've been in the office rather than a black police officer but it's definitely different it works both ways some people some citizens are more comfortable talking to me because i'm black and some people think that i should give people a lot of breaks because i'm black you know i get double tom think no not at me so
1:42 pm
it is my pain a little more stressful being a black police officer down here but. i don't know i don't actually like it i don't want to work in the other business like you know. working in this area. are you prepared to give up on the andre was on a run. he had got into a domestic dispute with the child's mother she knew he was on the run she still called the police are. not taking anything the same thing negative about her so he fled to the house that was down the street so he gets into a standoff what i would say about. 1520 sheriff's officers if you feel bad bad. bad you know. that one of those nannies you know you know what you did where
1:43 pm
you live and let you. know what you. did you get. the police are to my right i'm behind a small gang but i can see the camera lens and focus on the andre on the porch it's dark. i don't know if he hasn't gone thank you yet it may be. that i don't know what's going to come out that this is the situation i know i have a lot of aggressive people that's on the scene so we're all just trying to figure fill it out know what's going on that knowing nothing about it you know going to leave you no no. no no no no we're just this big long dialogue talking back and forth with the sheriff there saying give yourself up and say look i want to run i'm free to go to for ever in a penitentiary just grant me the chance to see my girl i'm not going to hurt or i
1:44 pm
just want to see my girl and we can all be fair peacefully they will i know give yourself a listen in the dog so he's a gang member in a league we've got a tough mentality so he's like not having met you know i'm going to die right here now stasi. it is a mystery to. me . that you. do. you. feel you get some point in your life where. you don't care anymore nobody cares about you so you don't care about anything on the given him his aggression cantante of aggression and i'd given him any sympathy like you know what just cause maybe mother knowing that his baby mother isn't a cop car they will say it all she wants a hospital so he's thinking like i'm going to lose my baby life so he's want to want top of anxiety is right now. i told you
1:45 pm
you remember to freshen up a little but yes. i'm just wondering. if. you are right here it is. hard to. believe. that. belief. that what you both very careful that it can do. for you that you that you know you already so we're planning now we're just we're just listen to knock i can feel the tension oh i feel like something's for the happen you know something's going to happen you don't know to what extent it's going to happen but you can fill it and was raised on google's bombs and in this dialogue is going on and in the middle of a dialogue is like advance science.
1:46 pm
my feeling with this world it's worse now is we're so confused. here for the certain generation that's controlling all the politics around the world. when that generation dies off and children that are brought off in this movie really are less materialistic don't really care about these things don't even want automobiles to want to live by the side job want to ride a bicycle this movement is global and it's going the world is going to has to go with the star action and it's going to change. we're. going to cut your. nose. so. much. that you're.
1:47 pm
not really you know you. might be on my you know if you want to maybe i'm here when i'm out you. know. so as we wait it out the tension increases it goes from silas to the cops turn back on give up yourself come on right now you're not seeing your baby mother now period you not seeing her you give up yourself right now we're standing in a dog's. name a man with no options so it's very very very tense dog of war her he's round up bringing a dog we're going to dog if you bring in a dog i'm a blast on it was so you know you. know. like. you're kind of go. where. you are so. they released the dog when they
1:48 pm
released the dog. he jumps up to protect itself from getting bit like anybody would to shield themselves from getting bit so he gets up with a shoe in his hand he throws it if you. know. when this motion happens. pop pop pop pop pop. it was a sure. you. got the commander in a bag i didn't tell any. by to sure i never gave that order. the unknowing love you know. they go pick up the dog they send a medal back for the dog and all sentimental back for that the kid is shaken on to ground they still come out with their guns pointed at him like as if he's going to
1:49 pm
get up he's not going to give up after that nobody's going to get up out again shot 88 times they reported 23 shots he was shot 88 times in his body but you're.
1:50 pm
right now there's a small little war. in which we in the bounty hunters great story. we could be anything as minor as a girl because somebody took somebody else's girl so. somebody gets shot in a war breaks out. you know in the past the gang members would do as you know they committed drive by they would ask you where you're from and if you gave out the wrong answer . they kill you now. when a gang member commits a drive by or walk up and well someone where you're from doesn't. what your answer is you can get killed anyway there is no correct answer and i know why that started or where that came from but. nowadays if. a gay member asked you where you're from boston do is run because going to shop. the gangs are in the schools and there's
1:51 pm
not a lot of police presence in the school so they basically have free reign there. and it starts off when they're young you know you get the little youngsters out there fighting in the schools. and it spills onto the streets and you know the teachers are out there trying to do the best job they can but it's just a it's a tough environment and you have the good kids that are actually trying to get an education and they've got to deal with all the gang feuds that are going on. in the schools.
1:52 pm
a lot of our students come from single family homes and a large majority of our students around 70 percent of my kids are actually coming from foster homes every kid wants to learn and i don't think that any one of our kids comes with the intention to gangbang every single day that's not part of their agenda. this is to make sure that my kids exit to get home avalon boulevard is the street that they have to cross over any of the crossover walk down to get to the train station to get down to their homes across avalon boulevard and sometimes kids go. and see. what high schools run about 7 to 20 years gangs. that we face that kids come in to and from school so we have a safe passage program which consist of law enforcement c.r.'s the public safety within our pipes cared for and that actually do security on campus and off campus
1:53 pm
and our community again in a bid to workers who are former gay members that change their lives and they kind of help us with a safe passage say fastens a 1000 feet from the school so our jurisdiction far has been the security on campus we could at least 1000 feet from the school. we work in concert with l.a.p.d. and a loss as county sheriff on a side track campus. we are security officers or allowed to carry and cuss pepper spray and firearms if we was a see somebody attacking a kid we will definitely jump out and stop that person from attacking a kid and yes we can detain him in holding the l.a.p.d. gets. we have had kids get shot you know come to school the 1st that was the 2nd year that we was here with green dot the kids walk in the school and. the guys walked up to him. and shot him he was a former gay member that was trying to get his life together trying to you know.
1:54 pm
get a good education and but you know what you already been tagged as a gang member you know even though you try to turn your life around and try to do right you can look at it like that so much. the chase the guy that actually shot him cornered him in a back yard l.a.p.d. came to the perimeter and they was actually because we assume the guy that l.a.p.d. was actually able to make an arrest. is special here in l.a. you never know something is going to happen is they have the spirit of moment so some days days be real cool and nothing happened and then some days you know it's as soon i guess war 3 out here. so starting going into high school i went to morningstar high school and in all california. i can remember being around the age of 15 or 16 or we started becoming active gang members after high school i've experienced dayton
1:55 pm
a so-called enemy and 97 was about 18 and experiencing that situation and having it revealed in front of my homeboys. almost cost me my life. and saying that i remember it was 97 maybe 2 weeks before my graduation one of my homeboys close to me. wanted to kill me and it was like a dark night i just remember it was kind of dark and it was one light twitching and within that light that was to twitching like. i remember looking across the street and it was one of my homeboys from my neighborhood had a trench coat on and he walked up towards me and i remember him telling me and i was and i said well we'll sub you here to see me and he pulled out the 45 and he put it to my face and. what that what then that quick 2nd i snooped the gun very familiar gun i seen all the bullets and the barrel.
1:56 pm
and he start talking crazy he was on the start talking crazy talking about you know i should be small because i'm dana enemy and i understand i know the protocol for females you know like you don't date enemies you don't date other fools from other neighborhoods i think the guys who probably get away with it but for females no and so because i did date somebody from another neighborhood it almost cost my life. he pulled the trigger but it was like a spiritual thing that happened that i can't explain till this day i mean for me i think it was god that was my transition of changing because when he pulled the trigger the barrel moved but no bullets didn't come out and i blacked out and when i blacked out i remember fallen in his black tunnel i thought i was shot in the hit . i thought i was going to hell because i was in i was in this black tunnel falling and then finally i was just looking back and i'm like where am i like i did already or was going on i'm going to hell and i remember start i started to pray that all father to hell mary because this is things that i kind of remember from catechism
1:57 pm
and i said you know what i've done live but it's better to go on and pray and just hope that the lord you know forgives me for my sins and i move forward and i remember looking back as i fall in this tunnel it was the virgin mary. and i accepted my death and when i accepted my dad i was back and i'm still standing up the person still pull in the trigger and the bullets are not even coming out and it's clicking. and then my mom comes finally he runs and my mom just pulls up and i'm just shocked like oh my god i could have my brains battered on the floor 2 weeks before graduation. you know it's difficult to get in and out of south central los angeles and it's
1:58 pm
it's just a violent area that the level of violence that people live with is unacceptable entirely unacceptable when i was a little girl my peers took me to vietnam when i was in saigon during the tet offensive i was not as afraid in saigon with bombs dropping every day from dusk till dawn as i was when i came back to los angeles because i was the victim in los angeles i didn't feel like i was a victim in vietnam and the level of violence i feel is just the same really even though they don't declare it to be a war zone it is a war zone. cameras in the public housing developments there was great distain the folks in the community didn't want the cameras there there's already bars on the windows and some of the developments in the community perspective was already living in a prison when you drive my arse. community it looks like a prison and now you're adding video cameras and now you're watching us and being brothers always watching this we just want to feel like we're a normal community but on the other hand the cameras have been extremely successful as it relates to law enforcement and witness intimidation we've had some murders
1:59 pm
occur inside jordan downs and caught them on video where we didn't have to ask a community member to put their life in danger and testify because we got it all on video so i think now that it's grown on the community and they realize that we're utilizing it not to suppress them but to help them it's been extremely successful. joins me every thursday on the daleks so i will be sure and i'll be speaking to us of the world of sport i'm sure i'll see you the. with.
