saudi arabian government needs to make things better quote unquote for the victims one of the things that i talk to the president about is given that this was a foreign national in the employ of a foreign service is you know we time to do this but obviously the government of saudi arabia needs to to make make things better for these victims naval air station pensacola bay security and local law enforcement got the call that there was an active shooter on the base local sheriff's deputies were among the 1st to respond and they're reporting that the shooting happened in a classroom building on the base covering 2 floors it's had a huge impact on the pensacola community this is a military town this base is the heart of this community in many many ways a lot of people either had relatives that were enlisted or they work for the base this has been a very very difficult day for us for our families for the navy family here there is some real heroism today this is the 2nd shooting at a navy base in 3 days there was one at the joint base pearl harbor heckman on wednesday a sailor opened fire there killed 2 other shipyard workers before killing himself

they don't have that motive as well but it's all in their investigation well donald trump says he's spoken to the saudi monarch about the deadly event and was told the truth it does not represent the true feelings that the saudi people have with the united states. king solomon of saudi arabia just called to express a sincere condolences and give his sympathies to the families and friends of the warriors 'd who were killed and wounded in the attack thinkings said that the saudi people who made me angry by the actions of the shooter and that this person in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the saudi people who love the american people so much trump will try to downplay the saudi role in this and that if it were yes i think it's correct to say that if it was another country that president trump had not does not have such close ties with he would be strongly denouncing this as something he may even you could imagine trump seeking to cut off ties with
6:04 pm
the country if it was a different foreign national you could very well see him impulsively taking action to dramatically change relations so but the fact that one of his president trumps close supporters in congress matt gates is calling this terrorism could complicate things a bit for for the president. and spent a tense saturday in the french capital as strikes against plans to overhaul the pension system continued for the 3rd day in iraq. i have a massive nationwide demonstration since thursday affecting schools hospitals and public transport for officers used tear gas to disperse crowds of the most violent rallies occurring in paris where reports suggest around a 1000000 have been involved in the strike action since it began protests also

happening against rising fuel taxes with 10 major motorways blocked off by trucks causing fierce traffic disruption here's what people are saying on the streets of paris. like my cause we see that mccrone a stubborn that he's heading straight for the wall with this completely unfair pension reform which will once again penalize the most vulnerable which will still allow the ultra rich to contribute less we must not let up but you don't get it do you see the state of the unions in france we said put aside your differences sit around the table and talk defend us that's your job it is the people who are on the streets like in 68 and like in 1789 it is that people who are evolved over. north korea's u.n. envoy has signaled that the country won't go ahead with washington's plan to make it denuclearize while saying extended talks with the us are not needed and simply a trick for americans to show that donald trump is pushing it the hard miles we do not need to have lengthy talks with the us now in the nuclear as asian is already
6:06 pm
off the negotiating table. we have the most powerful military we've ever had and we are by far the most powerful country in the world and hopefully we don't have to use it but if we do we will use it well most korea's strongest warning yet over its nuclear program comes as the u.s. and south korea kick start talks on diplomacy building with pyongyang tensions have been building with america threatening more sanctions the next year north korea has called on washington to rethink its policy of demanding unilateral changes donald trump and kim jong un have met 3 times since june 25th talks have made little progress former u.s. diplomat jim jatra told us he thinks trump's chances of a breakthrough on the career a fading the words come to mind one is dangerous and the other the other one is sad to dangerous because it seems we're getting back to the kind of nuclear brinksmanship that we saw maybe in 2017 sad because i think that president trump
6:07 pm
really wanted to as he says make a deal that he he thought he could break the deadlock with a personal relationship with chairman kim he was undermined by his own appointee as a resort especially in the hanoi summit which crashed because people like john bolton according to all of the reports insisted that the north must be nuclearized as a 1st step toward anything and of course that that was it was that was designed to be a dead end let's keep in mind of course trump is under impeachment threat here at home he has very little room for maneuver almost anything he does somebody accuses him of being a traitor he cannot make concessions to north korea no no i think rick reasonable vision where they will not make any concessions the united states basically controls his mouth and his twitter of bombs and that's about it and he cannot deliver on whatever it is he might have wanted to do based on what he said in 2016 and i think we're looking at a very very dangerous world coming. a former facebook content

moderator is taking the company to court alleging that he developed post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of his work he claims the watching hundreds of violent and shocking videos every day without having received proper training has left him psychologically scarred then hawkins takes up the story a bit where there is discussion about graphic content. let's be honest we've all had one of those days at the office most of us have probably experienced stress but some jobs can make things much worse apparently being a social media moderator could be one of them my 1st day on the job i witnessed someone being beaten to death with a plank of wood with males in it and repeatedly stabbed they 2 was the 1st time for me seeing beastie ality on video and it all escalated from there i've had to go on antidepressants because of working on the job at times i was so over my problems with alcohol to get to sleep because at least i wasn't dreaming when i slipped after having a few drinks on me are diagnosis of p.t.s.d. is something you'd expect after tours of duty in

look at it. you always see death every single day former employees allege a climate of pressure hitting high video targets hundreds per day while maintaining pinpoint accuracy little time to make decisions and action plans for getting them wrong and even less opportunity to get the support and counseling the vague claim they need facebook disagree the job is tough they say moderators get good training and full support at work this includes 247 on site support with trained practitioners and on call service and access to private health care from the 1st day of employment we are also employing technical solutions to limit their exposure to graphic material as much as possible of the trouble is facebook are between a rock and a hard place they've been criticized for years from failing to do more to prevent genocide and being too slow to stop streams of mass murder to allowing violent posts and not tackling fake news which lead to violence in recent years facebook's

hired tens of thousands more staff to deal with increases in violent content ai and automated systems seem to be a part of the solution but this hasn't come soon enough for those taking a giant to court. as christmas approaches there are all kinds of festive goodies packing the shelves and adding to it all a cult comic duo have created a seasonal card with what they thought was a pinch of humor the color depicts a grandfather who was outside with disease being removed from a family christmas dinner after being accused of committing an obscene act which linked to his illness it's been heavily criticized in britain where more than half a 1000000 people live with a degenerative neurological condition the content of this card is misinformed utterly inappropriate and actively damaging to the wider representing people living with dementia so did the card go over the line or is offense taken too easily these
6:12 pm
days we talked about that with british equality law specialist in the balance and good health from online political magazine spiked. we have experienced a slight overreaction i think what we need to understand is that this is a card which is by modern toss and if you know about modern toss the cartoonists they specialize in using crass and distorted expectations of what is expected of a particular situation i'm caricaturing them my father had families before he died . and i didn't find it funny ever there were amusing things that he was able to share and. if only we if we had a cure for alzheimer's i suspect we might all relax a little but even funny taking it off for sale fails to recognize that people are complicated based there may well be people who are living without simers or a family suffering with outsiders out there who are fans of modern toss and will
6:13 pm
nonetheless get the joke and find it funny and i think by taking out the sail by and with the outside society pretending that everyone who has an interaction with outside this thinks the same way i think we're slightly underestimating people's capacity to find humor in even the most black and dark situations do we make jokes about the holocaust should we i mean on the basis of what i just heard about justified then the whole of course who rape or this list the number of things that could be if you were using this logic work for me. must say that i am lucky the question is where the site of the human lies now the subjects that you just listed have been used as stock topics for comedy but comedians have to be very careful as to where they situate they seem or it would not be funny to make a joke merely the expense of the victims of the holocaust or victims of rape but there are ways you can craft jokes in order to situate the humor away from people's
6:14 pm
vulnerability in my case it was my father but when your your your wife will you pull your husband. have a condition like what alzheimer's what you're dealing with is very very difficult and it's not worthy of a joke. indian police have shot dead 4 men accused of the gang rape or murder of a young vet in the south of the country last month their trustees sparked widespread demonstrations with calls for them to be lynched while rights groups are accusing the police officers who shot the suspects of carrying out extrajudicial killings. ok let's look at the show was on her way to see a doctor when a stranger approach to tell how the her speeches trial was punctured all because you see she then called a system now to which i might go for the switched off. and then

spilled some paint on a base of canvas or knocked up some paper mâché i want to trade the other artists into splitting the cash prizes well unbelievably the judges fell for it and gave the prize so all of them having looked at the selection of work i have to admit that it is very hard to pick one which is why they have a prize so now each of the men is will be sharing the $50000.00 prize between them and this year the literary booker prize went the same way and they couldn't decide on a winner either so they just gave it to me as you know that everyone winning needs a warm and fuzzy feeling if no one wins then everyone is asked for my time and the next year well. kerry is and at this rate i've got a 100 percent chance of winning. a

6:24 pm
the television host said that the phone belonged to boris johnson leading to some to speculate whether the fact the prime minister uses a chinese model represents some sort of security vulnerability however johnson's a it's sad that the phone was borrowed from staffers and casually put into his very own pocket but whatever the truth is mind the extra food publicist here told and they and other chinese firms are making quite great strides in western markets as for november this year huawei has become the 3rd most popular phone in the u.k. with almost 10 percent of the market share but the u.k. planning of course to leave the european union all attention will turn to securing as much investment from countries around the world as possible so well as far as jobs is move a big 5 g. signal trying to obviously as it is a huge and important market as well as

supposedly like minded the cold agree on what the main threats of it's the appear to me of military might the 3rd to be both in great shape and brain dead at the same time as the organization celebrates its 70th anniversary is it finally time for a just think about its own. thinking of getting a new puppy once we got our shots from our law as he didn't know until he was trapped in this tiny little wired we don't need a crate with him the wall. reaching out into the wall when it's pretty much anywhere near and thousands of breeding dogs are caged in in human conditions on puppy farms i mean 67 years you know they've been locked up in cages outside you see no protection from the weather the heat you know the cold air the rain the snow the founder nothing they have no protection. because you. know
6:27 pm
it's ok. across the u.s. cruel puppy mills are supported by dog shows and still most of the puppies are coming from these large scale factory farming kind of operations are being sought in stores even joined a group businesses are involved like cargill among santos there has been a shocking amount of the organizing opposition to adverts to increase the standards of care for dogs bred in commercial rating for so many most of that opposition is coming from huge agricultural rooms and industries that have nothing to do with jobs don't buy dog on r.t. . this is a murder that was caught on video the murder was committed by the great street crips it was an in-house murder meaning that
6:28 pm
a street kripke killed another korean street crips oftentimes gang members go by colds and one of the code says to never commit crimes against your own gang members in this particular scenario or murder investigation there was a. transplant that was a narcotics user he went to purchase narcotics from 3 crew members on the narcotics was either bad or he was somehow slighted on it as a result he went to another grave streaker gang member in got a gun with a gun the transience shot and killed a street gang member at the time of the shooting there was another great street gang member with each person that was killed the victim of the murder and according to the game code he asked to make amends for allowing a gang member to be killed on his own watch. if he doesn't act toward take home some sort of action against the shooter then he will be disciplined by his own gang
6:29 pm
so. in this scenario that particular gang member. carries out the murder against the great street gang member who provided the gun to the transit and it's all caught on video. this is inside jordan downs it's mid day and you can see there's about 10 to 15 gang members loading the parking lot. just going about their daily business. ok here's the group here of the gang member several of them loitering you going to see the victim of the shooting come running. to this area with the suspect shooting behind them. here you can see all the gay members scatter. and they kind of hang around. because they know it's going to be a great street on great street or who's disciplining another member so they sit. around and watch where it is that was a rival gang shooting all of them with one out of the way because they'd all be intended targets here the suspect is chasing the victim around the vehicle. and
6:30 pm
he's just waiting to kill him. here the victim tries to run the suspect shoots him in the hand. he falls. and then he comes up and finishes among. he puts the gun in his back we're going to somebody and then just slowly walks away he has nothing really to fear here in the neighborhood because they're all great she crips gang members and he's banking on the fact that no one's going to go to court and testify against him. and again you see that nobody's really shocked about it nobody's talking about it nobody chased down the suspect. and then they just go about their daily activities and then obviously homicide will come in and start their investigation. and i was shot 3 times i mean i really didn't realize until my stomach starbird stomach start burning i knew something wasn't right.
