tv   Don Lemon Tonight  CNN  June 23, 2021 7:00pm-8:00pm PDT

7:00 pm
thank you for the opportunity to be with us tonight and to get after it. it's now time for the big show "don lemon tonight" and the big star, d. lemon. >> you said there's lots of big news on and there is. we have to talk about crime and what you were just talking about, but i tell you a really big story today is britney spears in court. not often do you get a star that big being as candid and open, i'm traumatized, tratraumatized. i told the world i'm happy and okay. i'm not happy. i can't sleep. i'm so angry. it is insane. she said she was forced to use birth control against her will. she wants her father out and she wants out of that
7:01 pm
conservatorship. i don't know where we go from here but this is certainly something that we should be paying attention to. where does the conservatorship end and autonomy for britney spears a fully grown begin? >> and a finding she can be in charge of her affairs and she will not be susceptible and this -- i've never seen another one of these. it's brittany spears but more interesting than the person involved because kids get this. the elderly -- >> bring light to it and attention. >> absolutely. that's why we're talking about it. the elderly disabled get this. an adjudicated mentally ill person gets this, not a 40-year-old person that can speak for themselves and act for themselves. i know she had problems. this isn't even a limited conservatorship. it complete. what happens next is her getting a day in court where this
7:02 pm
doctor's finding that she is not competent is not accurate. it has to be litigated. i believe she'll win and then it's what choice she makes in her life. >> i hope she's okay and does win and she's able to be the britney spears that she -- the person she wants to be especially with her kids and with her entire family. but i think it's also important, chris, you know how you and i talk about mental health and taking the stigma off of mental health. there should be no stigma on mental health. you know, everyone in this country went through a traumatic year or 14 months or however long still going through it. some people can't -- some people having trouble with reentering into society, and you can certainly understand we should give people some time. i hope that this works out not only for britney spears but it helps to take the stigma and lift the vail on mental health in this country so that we can
7:03 pm
all talk about it openly and people can actually get the help they need. is that too much to ask? >> no, but we also have to be straight about it which is you can be mentally ill and in charge of your affairs. >> amen. >> like 99% of people that are mentally ill. mentally ill people can be the perpetrators of it. this is about whether or not somebody is so ill, i have cancer but i'm working versus you're in the hospital on a chemo drip and it's not going to end well. that's what a conservatorship is. that's not where she is. so this ain't about her being mentally ill so you got to lose everything because everybody is crazy if they're mentally ill. this is a good way to take that down if she can make the showing in court. >> there are lots of different things that you can, you know,
7:04 pm
that you can -- when it comes to mental illness, right? look what is happening with the tennis player. all sorts of things. it can come in different forms but yes, you can be in charge of your life. if you should be on medication, you do that. if you need therapy, talk therapy, psycho therapy, you should be able to do that. you know what i think everyone should be able to do and that's talk like we do and we do it not only here but also on the handoff, which is available on apple podcast. it's chris and i talking very ca candidly, more openly and c candidly -- >> we went deep on this one. the one we did that's coming out we went deep. >> we talked about crime, history, what -- >> we talked about juneteenth. >> we talked about the measuring cup between religious liberty and secular society. >> most importantly --
7:05 pm
>> oh boy. >> what is family about? what goes into the decision whether to have kids? what's the up? what's the down? you heard it with the three kids to go to college and about don who is thinking about sticking his toe in the pool. >> yeah. >> it's deep but it's real. >> yep. so a little secret before i go in two seconds, with chris this weekend for juneteenth. they're great parents. they don't often feed their kids so their kids end up hanging out with me to have lunch. [ laughter ] >> you know what, if it weren't don i would be embarrassed because i swam over to his boat first to mooch food but my son went over to his boat -- >> ate half the boat. >> i could see on the faces of don's guests, they were a little like kind of like uncomfortable with how much this kid was
7:06 pm
eating and then i don't even think he said thank you. he just jumped off the boat. >> by the way -- >> like a seal got off the boat. >> can i have an ice cream sandwich for me and fie four friends. >> you're a good uncle. >> a little less food won't kill you. >> nor you, fatty. this is don lemon tonight and we have big news on multiple stories on a very busy news night. i promise you. there is a lot going on. the justice department releasing six never before seen videos from police body camera and surveillance footage that shows rioters harassing and attacking police, police are trying to defend the capitol on january 6th. these videos are a chilling reminder what happened when a trump supporting crowd fought police and stormed the halls of congress and i have to warn you again as we have been with these videos, you'll see violence. you'll hear graphic language.
7:07 pm
we're not beeping the language because this is the way it happened and we want you to get the full context of it. this video shows officers in a skirmish with a man in a red maga hat. police fall to the ground and the chaos continues with another man yelling get out. >> get out! get out! get out! get out! go! >> yelling at officers to get out and then there is another video, this shows a man with a skateboard who prosecutors say is 21-year-old grady owens of
7:08 pm
texas attacking police with it . >> sickening, sickening, sickening. >> we have a lot more to come on these never before seen videos and what they tell us what happened on one of the darkest days in history but listen to general mark milley. he's talking today why it's so important to understand white rage behind what happened on january 6th and why members of the military should study
7:09 pm
theories like critical race theory. >> it is important that we train and we understand and i want to understand white rage and i'm white and i want to understand it. so what is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the constitution of the united states of america? what cause that? i want to find that out. i want to maintain an open mind and analyze it. our soldiers, sailors, airmen coal f come from the american people so it important the leaders now and in the future understand it. i've read carl marks. i've read lennon. that doesn't make me a communist so what is wrong with understanding having some situational understanding about the country for which we are here to defend? and i personally find it offensive that we are accusing the united states military, our general officers, our commissioned, non-commissioned
7:10 pm
officers of being quote woke because we're studying theories out there. it proposed there were laws in the united states, an prior to the civil war that led to a power differential with african-americans that were three quarters of a human being and a proclamation to change it and brought it up to the civil rights act in 1964 and took another 100 years to change that. >> hmm. the truth is tough sometimes to hear for some folks. while the chairman makes an eloquent defense, embattled congressman matt gaetz lobs a despicable tweet attacking the general i quote with generals like this it's no wonder we fought considerably more wars than we've won.
7:11 pm
gross. just gross. should be considering the behavior of this whatever you want to call him. a congressman denigrating our armed forces and asking lloyd austin what he thinks of critical race theory and claiming that some service members, some complained how the military is fighting extreme and its ranks. >> they say your standdown regarding extremism did not help the military, it hurt the mil military. i want to share it caused service members to otherize one another and impaired group cohesion and interesting to me, is that i've heard those sentiments most frequently from units that are majority minority. how should the department of defense think about critical race theory? >> i don't know what the issue of critical race theory is and
7:12 pm
what the relevance here with the department. we do not teach critical race theory. we don't embrace critical race theory and i think that's a spus spurious conversation. we're focused on extremist behaviors and not ideology, not people's thoughts. not people's political orientation, behaviors is what we're focused on and one final point, i'd say we have gotten ten times that amount of input, 50 times that amount of input on the other side that have said hey, we're glad to have headed ability to have a conversation with ourselves and with our leadership and that's what we need. [ laughter ] >> well, he said that's what we need but people have said in the military you're teaching critical race theory and then he
7:13 pm
says, no, we don't teach critical race theory mat. mat matt gaetz come on. listen. it's exactly what we need in the military. we need to talk to each other about the problems we face. we really do. republicans like matt gaetz want to sweep it all under the rug, distract you from revving up the old outrage machine. it is an outrage machine. they're using this as a bogeyman. critical race theory and i'm going to talk in a second about that's not even taught to young kids. we said that last night. they are trying to -- they want you to fall for the okie doke. that's what they're doing, ginning it up. first it was masks. then it was the big lie of
7:14 pm
non-existent election fraud and now this. this sounds ominous. so let's use this. this word sounds ominous. antifa sounds ominous. black panthers sounds ominous. acorn sounds ominous. now critical race theory, the new ominous boogeyman word. straw man, nothing there. they're using it to stoke outrage in schools across the country even though, as i said, it is not even taught to kids. a school board meeting in virginia, erupting in chaos last night over critical race theory, which the superintendent says they don't even teach.
7:15 pm
>> shame on you! shame on you! >> fall for it. the people pushing it should be ashamed of them sselves because they're exploiting the lack of information. you're being exploited. it's not being taught to your kids, i'm sorry. that's the truth. it a cynical gain. they take one grain of truth in school districts more and more diverse doing a long over due reset of how they teach history and they blow up that grain of truth with lies about critical race theory. praying on parents fears that the world is changing around them. that's all it is. fear. they want to -- they're praying on your fear. co-opting you, ex plploiting th fear and division and that's happening when there is a very
7:16 pm
real problem in this country we're talking about on this program. we had police chiefs around the country during the pandemic talking about this problem. it's not something new to us especially on this program if you're watching. it's a spike in crime, violent crime spreading across the country. the major city's chief association has found that homicides in the first quarter of this year are up over last year across this country from portland and l.a. to chicago and louisville, baltimore and philadelphia. yes, we were dealing with the pandemic last year but a lot of people feel that that's exacerbated the issue. here is the president of the united states today. >> crime is historically rises during the summer, and as we merge from this pandemic, the country opening back up again, a traditional summer spike be more pronounced than it usually would be.
7:17 pm
>> the president vowing to crack down on gun dealers who break existing laws and making it clear he wants to invest in, not defund the police. the fbi director christopher wray attributing the surge in crime in part to bail reform. that's a conversation we've had on the show, as well. former new york city police commissioner talked about that. other law enforcement folks have been on talking about bail reform moving too fast and police departments around the country doing too much too fast with bail reform. the exact quote from the former commi commissioner bratton says what people need to realize, some people need to be in jail. so this bail reform according to law enforcement and the fbi, that is what's preventing people accused of crimes from being incarcerated before going to trial. >> do you believe one of the reasons crime is on the rise is
7:18 pm
that certain jurisdictions have basically eliminated bail? you catch them on monday morning and they're out on the streets monday afternoon? >> i guess i would put it this way, there is nothing more disheartening to a law enforcement officer to see somebody that you worked hard to arrest promptly back outcome mitting the crime again. there is enough people to go after the first time without doing it over and over again. >> it's also disheartening to the people in the community when they see that happen, as well, because then their communities aren't as safe as they should be. so i mention the the former police commissioner of new york city nypd commissioner will be on in just a moment. you don't want to miss that and we're going to have a candid conversation about what is going on in this country with crime. that as the world is watching a courtroom in l.a. chris and i just talked about this where britney spears is
7:19 pm
pleading to be removed from the nearly 13-year conservatorship that gave her father control of her finances and a whole will the of her life still. still, this is far beyond. chris is right. this goes beyond britney spears. that's why we talk so much about it. this is about what happens to people in this country when they have issues with mental health. as many, many people do. should not be a stigma. and what we're leaning about her testimony is shocking. britney spears speaking for more than 20 minutes as she read from a letter beginning this way quote, i haven't been back to court in a long time because i don't think i was heard on any level when i came to court the last time. she says that she was put on lithium, forced to use birth control against her will and she was quote, i told the world i'm happy and okay, i'm traumatized. i'm not happy. i can't sleep. i'm so angry, it's insane. a lot more to come on this later on in the show and everyone should pay attention to this
7:20 pm
because we all have someone and maybe it's even ourselves dealing with issues in our family and we'll talk about that, britney spears and the broader issue and a lot more news tonight. we'll bring in paula reed with the never before seen videos from the capitol insurrection. paula, good evening to you. thank you for joining us. new videos last night. you had now videos last week and these new videos are showing harassing and attacking police. the violence in what we can see and hear on these videos is absolutely chilling. go on. what do you have for us? >> it is completely chilling and what's so extraordinary about these never before seen clips is that many of them are from the view point of police as they were over run. the footage was coming from body cameras and surveillance cameras, it's the latest chilling frame by frame account how these protrump supporters broke into federal buildings as police tried to protect themselves and the capitol.
7:21 pm
don, you and i talked about why it so important for the public to see these videos especially as some lawmakers and right wing outlets continue to shift blame away from the former president and supporters by distorting what happened that day. but videos like this, they leave no doubt. but these videos are only available to the public because over a dozen outlets led by cnn fought to make them public. i want to toss to one of the clips, again, this is an extraordinary moment where you have riteoters clashing with police while chanting usa, usa. let let's take a look.
7:22 pm
>> usa! usa! usa! usa! >> i mean, that's ax bsolutely incredible. they have not been made public which is why news outlets are fighting for them to be released. the specific clips we've seen throughout your show are from the case against a man named grady owens accused of attacking offices with a skateboard after he and his family allegedly came to d.c. to support the former president's efforts to overturn the election. now, owens is charged with six
7:23 pm
crimes including assaulting officers with a dangerous weapon, impeding passage through the capitol and other violence on the grounds but don, he's pleaded not guilty. >> paula, thank you for you reporting. see you soon. thanks so much. the traditional summer spike in crime may be worse than usual and the director of the fbi says he's concerned about that. can it be fixed and how long will it go on? that is next. >> we absolutely are concerned about the rise in violent crime and specifically, the most dangerous type of violent crime, namely the homicide rates all over the country. you need an ecolab scientific clean here. and you need it here. and here. and here. which is why the scientific expertise that helps operating rooms stay clean is now helping the places you go every day too.
7:24 pm
seek a commitment to clean. look for the ecolab science certified seal. for a limited time, you can save more on flights, hotels and rental cars during priceline's freedom sale. and when you get a big deal... feel like a big deal. with the freedom sale at priceline, every trip is a big deal.

7:28 pm
you on. tan thank you so much. i want to layout what the president is proposing and get what you think about the strategy to tackle the surge in violent crime by cracking down on illegal gun trafficking and rogue gun dealers using the american rescue plan dollars to have more law enforcement and other policing efforts. will that help, commissioner? >> well, actually, what you've out outlined, don is a portion of the strategy the president discussed today. but i was very surprised to see how comprehensive that strategy was and the various tactics within it. i'm encouraged by it that this is something we've obviously been working on for awhile. not talking only about refunding the police who desperately need that refunding, we are down from over 800,000 police officers in the '90s. i think the latest count is
7:29 pm
675,000 and police departments around the country are losing additional officers every day. he's talking about refunding to hire more police in the short term to give over time money to cities to put officers on over time in the summer months but the comprehensive aspect of this plan is that he's also talking about other efforts to prevent crime. the whole idea of bringing money into things we know do work in many cities around the country. the idea of street work is going into the various communities to deal with the gang violence because most of this violence and most cities around this country is gang violence. people who have access to guns. the police executive resource forum yesterday did a town hall with police chiefs from around the country. five of those chiefs talked about the situations in their city. new york, portland, louisville, baton rouge and baltimore. they were all very pessimistic about this summer, the levels of
7:30 pm
violence and the inability to slow down the trend of that violence. the president's actions today are very important because it shows at a national level this thing has risen to the level of a national crisis and before you can fix a crisis, you have to admit that you have one. finally, we are recognizing that as we are dealing with the coronavirus, we let another crisis grow unimpeded and in fact, facilitated it with bail reform, criminal justice reform and seizing attacks on american law enforcement. american law enforcement, there is a lot to criticize for but the attacks were so comprehensive that it undermined confidence in the part of the public and undermined moral with policing and we're seeing some of the effects of that impact, if you will. >> listen, i want to continue on to discuss this because over -- during the quarantine and
7:31 pm
pandemic, we had -- i'm sure we reached out to you and others, we had police commissioners on from different cities from around the country and they talked to us about this issue as we were dealing with the coronavirus and people at home and started to see major spikes in crime in new york, in los angeles and chicago. they've increased. put these numbers up. homicide rates in these cities increased from the same point last year and even a year before. there they are before you. and you mentioned bail reform and you mentioned other things and last time you were on, you said that cities were moving too quickly with some of these reforms and they were actually hurting. what can you attribute this rise in homicide rates to, commissioner? >> a number of things and we're still not certain in terms of some of the things that may have caused a rise. certainly one of them was during the coronavirus, the american criminal justice system shut
7:32 pm
down. the court system shut down. and at the same time, we were releasing across the country tens of thousands of people from our state prisons and our jails. those coming out of the state prisons are particularly problematic as 80% of the people are in there for violent crime. the jails often times people are in there for minor crime but state prisons, you don't go to state prison easily. you go for major violent crime. as we etcemptied out the prison new york city is a prime example, we have no reason to deal with these people as we're released to deal with the overcrowding and basically deal with the covid crisis but they got out into the streets with no place to go and no supervision. at the same time, our courts shut down. you make an arrest, you might get an arraignment but effectively, there are no trials.
7:33 pm
new york city currently has 5,000 individuals who have been arrested on serious gun charges who have been arraigned, that the vast, vast majority of them are out in the street and new york to date had one murder trial this year. so the idea is the cause of some of what you're seeing is so many violent people let out of prison, so many others who have been arrested for violent crime, which nothing has happened to them make a prediction for you. in new york city, i can guarantee the district attorneys in new york city because they're not able to meet the speedy trial mandate, many of those thousands of people arrested for gun violence, their cases will be dismissed and what's going to happen, they will be back out on the street. don, there is a national crisis in the criminal justice system at the moment that's not being acknowledged and recognized and to fix it, a lot of what the president is proposing is going to help because he's talking about money to be poured into
7:34 pm
all these issues including not just the police and the courts, but also into a lot of the social needs out there for the emotionally disturbed, the homeless and drug addicted. the loss of lives and the drug addicted population is still continuing opioid crisis is phenomenal. you talk about the homicide rates. everyone focuses on the homicide rates. i focus on the shooting rates. those will become so adapt in the trama hospitals dealing with shooting victims that we save a lot of lives and in the '90s. homicide rate would be a lot higher but for the medical expertise in the hospitals. let's pay a little more attention for the shooting victims because those numbers are higher than the homicide rate. >> commissioner, i'm grateful to have you on to talk about the issues and i know it tough in the reform the police movement may not want to hear you words but people are feeling this in their lives and seeing it's
7:35 pm
personal when you lose someone or someone is apffected by gun violence. please come back. we'll continue to talk about this problem, highlight it and make it better. tan thank you so much. see you soon. >> all the best. let talk about now, you know, the former police commissioner mentioned mental health and this has nothing to do with crime but all comprehensive. we all need to pay attention and help everyone in our society right now. so britney spears now saying that she just wants her life back after years of being forced to work and take medication she says against her will. and she is pleading for a judge to end the conservatorship she says let her father control her life.

7:48 pm
health evaluation. she's 39 years old. she's incredibly successful. will it happen? what's going to happen? >> so it could, don. good evening to you. so what happens is we obviously know that she's had her share of issues, right? she had mental health problems. a lot of people do. that is the thing and so unfortunately, with that, and some alleged drug use, what have you, about 13 years ago her father thought it was appropriate to act as guardian. a lot of things at stake and assets and a lot of decision to be made and predators with her money and income. and so there was this conservatorship and i think at that time, perhaps for very good reason and that's continued over the course of the years to guide her. to look over her, to ensure that things are as they should be. but now as she apparently gets better, she's in court indicating that she's competent, she's able, she's responsible and she wants back in and so look, we live in a society where all of us should be able to tend to our fears if we're competent
7:49 pm
and able to do so and the argue 789 she's making is she is. to the event she can demonstrate after psychiatric and other evaluations happen that she should be in place and everyone else should be removed, i think that's exactly what should happen. we're a ways from that but that's what the movement is that she would like to see moving forward. >> so samantha, britney spears didn't hold back today. she talked about not being able to get married or have a baby. she said her so-called team won't let her get off birth control. i mean, you really opened a lot of people's eyes to what she is going through in your documentary. are you surprised by what we learned today? >> i'm absolutely not surprised because we knew most of it from our investigation that we published yesterday about how britney has been wanting to get out of this for so long. i have to disagree with my fellow panelist's position. a lot of people assume and said she needed it. it really helped her and saved
