1:05 am
absolutely. i understand that. no—one could speak more clearly about this than someone like yourself and your own experience. but where does the pride come? where does the sense that this is the beginning of something you come from? there is some money to spend on resources, but it is a drop in the bucket? it�*s spend on resources, but it is a drop in the bucket?— drop in the bucket? it's a drop in a bucket — drop in the bucket? it's a drop in a bucket but _ drop in the bucket? it's a drop in a bucket but nobody - drop in the bucket? it's a drop in a bucket but nobody was . in a bucket but nobody was talking about it. everybody was talking about it. everybody was talking about it. everybody was talking about police killing us, nobody was talking about us shooting us. and this is where something different is happening, because our organisation, and i�*m excited because i have been fighting this a long time. i have been fighting this a long time about gun trafficking. so many guns, i have been seen, so many guns come into this community, and nobody is paying attention. it's nobody is paying attention. it�*s like somebody took a truck and dropped all the guns in the street and said, hey, take a gun. and we here at harlem

police, given the tensions around george floyd and the black lives matter movement and this desire to put more money in the direction of the police tell them serve communities that are? —— over the last year for defunding the police. defunding the police would be a shame. if something happened, the first person you call is the first person you call is the police. and defunding the police with all the crime that is out there, that would be a real disaster. with this drop in the bucket, a drop in a bucket that you are talking about, you could take that money and train some of these police better. you talk about young people and helping them, train the explorers, put the money into the explorer programme. but absolutely do not defund the police. that is a critical piece rate there. fix,

1:26 am
on the roof. you can reach me on twitter @bbcdavideades, always good to hear from you and don�*t forget the bbc news website. see you soon. hello there. we�*ve seen yet more rain across many parts of the country in the past 2a hours. and the reason it�*s been so wet, really, for so long is because of the position of the jet stream, that�*s the upper level winds. and as it�*s diving to the south of the uk, with that sort of pattern, you end up with low pressure sitting close to the uk. and it�*s around that low pressure that we see these areas of cloud rotating, keeping some wet weather going into the night and into wednesday, as well. if we look at the story over the next few days, we find some sunshine, yes, but there�*s still the threat of some showers which may be heavy, as well. and certainly on tuesday, there was lots of rain at wimbledon.
1:27 am
it looks a lot drier though for wednesday — can�*t rule out 1—2 showers, mind you, and temperatures will be 20—21 celsius. we start the day pretty cloudy, actually, there may well be some further rain around. as it brightens up, we get some sunshine which triggers more showers, particularly across england and wales, and some of those could be heavy and thundery. a warmer day, though, than it was on tuesday for eastern scotland and the northeast of england. and for many parts of the country, temperatures are a little bit higher on wednesday. a few showers in the london area, those will tend to fade away during the evening, and it�*ll probably be dry at wembley for kick—off with ideal temperatures for playing football. as we move into thursday, many places starting dry, some sunshine breaking through. again, we�*ll see some showers developing too. these will be a little more hit and miss, but it brightens up in eastern scotland, we could get some heavy showers here. the rest of scotland and northern ireland looks more cloudy and not as warm, perhaps, but with the sunshine in england and wales, it should feel a bit warmer
1:28 am
with light winds on thursday. we�*ve got slightly higher pressure to end the week — the fly in the ointment is this little weather front here that keeps more cloud across northern ireland, eventually increasing the cloud across wales and the southwest, bringing some rain later on in the day. ahead of it, some sunshine coming through, still the chance of some showers. these are most likely in eastern scotland and across the eastern side of england. but many places on friday will have a dry day. and those temperatures sitting at 22—23 celsius. now i don�*t think those numbers will change a great deal into the weekend. there will still be some sunshine around, but we still have this threat of some showers and the greater risk of showers is likely to be on sunday.
