official account does not report that a significant amount of time passed between the call coming to arrest and dante wright being given any medical care they waited at least 4 minutes before. they got her out of vehicle. they didn't emitting get him out right away and i feel that if you shot him and you recognize he realize you shot him and you should have done that then why is it your number one priority to go in get him and try and save his life and give him a chance in life why are you doing that hansen began filming minutes after she arrived you can see wright's white car between the police vehicles no one is attempting to help right she says only a minute and a half off the she began filming do you see right being given c.p.r. having been pulled from his coffee house and also says office a post did not immediately attend to right off to having shot him only off to back up arrived was anything dumb that we should be the 1st person there dragging my

heart and doing anything she could to do it because she made that mistake if it was a mistake then that's what she would done the lawyer for rights family says this is another argument for more transparency from the police this proves we need to see all the body cam video from all the offices to see if the police officer has rendered ada mediately for dante right that could a possibly saved his life we also brooklyn sent a police to speak to us but they've yet to respond question why does it appear it took so long for them to give dante right any medical assistance she had 0 brooklyn's and. there are multiple casualties after a shooting in the us city of indianapolis and happens as a fed ex facility so far at least 8 people are confirmed dead so police are holding a media conference right now they're saying the gunman took his own life as

10:09 am
this. has become a familiar sight to our viewers around the world because they're being so many trials here garnering international attention during the past few months now what's been happening today is that the defense lawyers for the activists have been presenting their mitigation please to try and get more lenient sentences but that's been going on now for around about 6 hours we're still hopeful that there will be sentences you know before the end of the day but i have to remember that you know just a few weeks ago a cool case here went on for more than 27 hours that's not expected to happen this time but it does give an indication that the cool time say it can be quite a lastic if they need to be now the activists who are awaiting sentencing will arrested just start just almost a year ago in fact and they have been some of them have been on bail 5 of them 2 others have been denied bail including jimmy lie that you mentioned in your
10:10 am
introduction he was actually brought to the cole from the jail ways now awaiting trial on national security charges and of course that means he's facing the prospect of life in prison on top of whatever sentence he will get here today there have been a wave of prosecutions of calls during the past couple of months since the ending of the protests that began in 2019 and those prosecutions have had the effect of restoring you know a semblance of order in hong kong you don't get the protests that you had back in 2019 but you to get small ones as is happening now outside the court and of course you know the international community is watching all of this very closely indeed they're all diplomats from a number of country. he's including australia britain the netherlands as well as the e.u. and that's a measure of the concern that the international community has about this case and age and just put all this in context for as you mentioned there be lots of cases
10:11 am
that mention the protests sizes have died in some wards how has all of this impact is hong kong's prudes crissy movements. well we have to remember those on trial so on trial now those awaiting sentencing in many ways of veterans of the pro-democracy movement they began their campaign for political reform when i 1st came to hong kong back in in the late eighty's they were pushing for more directly elected seats just a handful of politicians were directly elected back then and the sad irony of course is that in many ways that campaign is back where it began because the new electoral reform changes that china has forced on hong kong means that less than 20 legislators out of the new 90 seat parliament will be directly elected. cajun brian bring is the latest live from hong kong sankey age in. now u.s.

10:22 am
a pandemic not the biggest quarterly growth figure that china has posted since records began in 1993 so we have to remember that is it is a somewhat skewed figure because we're coming off a very low base this time last year china posted a historic contraction of almost 7 percent not really did set the stage for a dramatic rebound that we've seen this 18.3 percent or a very large figure was in line with what many economists were expecting now we have to look at this in terms of the context of china getting back to to normal life last year we had china close some quite draconian measures to control 19 and because of that we saw this outbreak controlled relatively early compared to other countries for mid last year it started to make up for those losses economically and from september. had kind of made up for those losses and continue to grow and so we actually stole in 2020 china's economy grew by 2.3 percent and it was the only
10:23 am
major economy to do so so that's important but what is key to remember though china's economy economic growth has been robust it has been on even the last of it is thanks in large part to a strong industrial sector a lot of these exports going to other countries especially those still affected by lock downs and also this state led infrastructure building in some moderate stimulus as well as to thank for that worth. u.s. president joe biden will hold his 1st meeting with the world leader in person since taking office japanese prime minister yes he does so guy hasn't arrived in washington for talks china is expectance its own ate the discussion the u.s. and japan are concerned about chinese military exercises near taiwan and human rights abuses in seems young and hong kong. the global economy is another focus of the talks between biden and suga the 2 leaders are concerned but won't mind shortage of semiconductor chips while brendan has more. semiconductors are at the

heart of the devices many of us use every day from phones to game console household electronics and medical diagnostics to name just a few but now there are a shortage of the vital silicon chips in my 30 year career i've never seen a. demand exceeding supply to the extent that we have supplies were tight before the pandemic hit but during the global lock downs demand for more networking and more devices has skyrocketed now we're in a multi-year cycle where the demand is really outstripping the supply the crunch is crushing the u.s. auto industry at the beginning of the pandemic demand plummeted and automakers cut back production drastically but they underestimated how quickly demand would rebound when they raced to put in more orders late last year they were turned down by chip makers committed to supplying other industries when those workers that
