so we asked students in the spring how many of them knew you know could put their hands on a gun within twenty four hours and all. overstayers and the school felt that they could get their hands on a gun within twenty four hours my students are not buying guns but they know that their uncle has a gun and they know where it is or they know that just they know somebody who has a con on the net where it is so when i say they could put their hands on
a gun i'm not saying i could buy one. she met him this summer he did a workshop on black guns matter this summer and he's here again to talk to us today also feel. you know. oh really wow this really cool hope all day and all coordination to your form. you got oh you got my you got your mind on one thing all the time i'm lookin to go and this is art. i mean think about it. but guns aren't they answer to everything
art can have a rock it's a small it's all good it's all. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy for him to let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic developments only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical. to sit down and talk. i want. a shout out to get up on soldier that i. honestly had left it and that was on one.
he ain't going to name mean. you'll be from a gun store if they'll just feeling blue and you're right so they had won't hear me talk about guns and shill with what was he going for and how to take apart a gun what is the poppers we used to hold in the hole. in. your gun he has showed us they are very. helpful but then at the same time i had to tell him to identify no doubt was meant for every student because some students found it s. intro filmed a play from the mud with a. great how good he did. he did for all of the way from the roof to. here to help the kids talk about guns he will go to name but to me i have been. good for the last bob mirror show where he is he had some very good point to start
so why don't they black of those the way i would like these look. all black guns by the fire and see the free will decision to basically go to areas with ignorance go on things like just the people about you know you can the phone while all this has anybody have a. very experienced explosive the and how i would see that aspect wacko the irony or just. oh so you so shocked that my not. having periods before i. had any and not seeing a lot of things. as. shot seven times easy was. called decide. because.
we're going to do. overseas he's with us the lenses and some of the stuff it's an important so really important issue in our community and people are dying and you know there's a lot of searching going on and a lot of it is. because people are not thinking it's around the people who are in their communities that are doing that need to come and talk to them and share with them about their lives and incised them about their lives sound going and mentor them i mean i think our students all need mentors and i think their. community is full of. people who are i mean i think actually the most important icons are the ordinary people who just have figured out how to have a good life and are working to have families have a house. you know because i think the you know one of the problems in you know and i've had i've been working with this population for twenty five years and i think
one of the problems is that it's only the famous people are not the right people for it to be using as your models because very few people are going to become stars and that's you know i mean if you're lucky when that happens that's great but for the rest of the population figuring out what the balance is i have work that you're satisfied with and the pays your way and that keeps you in the house and have friends those a really important skills that they need that need to be modeled. a . little bit more respect i mean because black lives matter. because one of my career going to drive
the next generation and the big law on that task they're. fascinated want to talk. i want to care but i don't want to carve growing. what i recall i know. what. was shot down. into reality when you're down there but the question was out. when it comes. to in the black and white when it comes to relationships.

is a who cooking. having a good. cook does but the other two pieces of your. beef element to try and. get a good base. we were shopping malls. i asked the teacher that one day i have seen this while we get home from work the reason we don't get hard is they don't feel like doing the work. forty you've got forty kids to a class and we've got a great forty kids paper. plus homework they say oh we're going to get
a relative audience so we just. know we need the education i should be able to do day four of us not say oh we don't. blame the teachers because the tondo home where he got to school systems have a budget cut it's not every day you see a kid go to school do what i got to do. to get out the hood i'll make sure i'm doing i'm going to school for you reason it's not a lot of time you see a lot of people a state school to get out the way some of. my mom or my dad stop saying some i get out the house now we have. teachers urban teachers they did not speak perfect english but you got them. i can understand what they saying is. just because of the budget cut. at the right times. they.

this recent. you can't act as a police officer without probable cause even if you see somebody who looks suspicious start doing something suspicious you can't necessarily do a lot about it unless you see that i'm doing something specific so you may see somebody standing out and it's really cold out and they're along and you wondering what they're doing but you really can't search them or anything like that. typical things that you might be looking for are people who are out in cold weather or in odd parts of the city you could observe them from a distance if they can't see. these under the saloon
there he's at a bar he's standing outside and people inside may know that if you want anything go outside and see that guy pick it up to take a baguette. but chances are he's not going to be dealing on the street if he is outside of a bar if he has any connection to the bar because that the best way to deal in a bar situation is in the men's room. this guy here that's given a good look and he's welcome back that's good if you are in uniform if you're not in a cruiser he knows that you saw him so he may decide not to be doing any more business tonight. he is standing there in the dark and why and again it's a constant like around whether it's five minutes later twenty minutes later you call him back around again now as you have to. if you're in uniform if you're in
a cruiser and he knows you're a cop probably less danger if he knows you're a cop if you're if you're in uniform he knows that you saw him he knows it you saw him standing there and you may come back around and he met or better not be holding anything he better not be in the middle of dealing anything like that if you're working undercover you really don't want to be seen you don't want to make eye contact with the guy unless you want to make some sort of a deal with and you certainly don't make him suspicious although you might well make eye contact in terms of giving him that the idea that you want something. this pizza shop here. that could be alive depending upon how late that's open that pizza shop could be a place where people are going to congregate they're going to go there are late at night place it's open twenty four hours a day or very very late that's where people want to go after the bars and they want
it may want to keep the party going a little bit so that would be a good place to sell. i didn't think the number. they've matter to us is over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crime happens today. eighty five percent of global wealth you long for the ultra rich eight point six percent world market thirty percent some with four hundred five hundred three first second per second and if we rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars
a park but don't let the numbers over. the only number you need to remember one one business show you know for the mid one and only boom but. during the great depression which old mr remember there was and most of my family were unemployed working class and it wasn't it was bed you know much worse objective listen today but there was an expectation the things were going to get better. there was a real sense of hopefulness there isn't today today's america was shaped by the ten principles of concentration of wealth and power. reduced democracy attack solo doubt engineer elections manufacture consent and other principles according to no i'm chomsky one set of rules for the rich opposite set of rules for
