4:35 am
twins, i didn't even question where the other one was when they only showed me one. now that's a paper to ploy because she's never spoken to me about that because about in maturity i deal with the situation. everyone in the world notes, no one wants to bury their family or piracy who should have to go there for i think he always wanted to have some kind of relationship with kim. he didn't want to lose it, but he couldn't control himself. he had
4:36 am
a he had the devil in him when he was born, i guess and it was hard to fight it. ah, and came always want a closure. she always wanted. she always said to me from i guess 16 all the way until she is now that she said, i know, i know deep down. i'll always talk to him. i'll always be able to tell him my piece of this story. and one day we get a phone call and i said new york times to call us up and this woman, nina bernstein and ha nina said to me, um, do you know, are you related to bruce? anton? i said, yeah, that's my ex husband and she said, well, i have to tell you something, but it was really shocking to me to discover that new york state law, a law dating back to the 19th century,
4:37 am
required the city to offer the bodies of unclaimed dead to medical schools for dis, section i learned that there were 22 cadavers that were in cold storage at albert einstein medical school. you know basically the, these cadavers are just lent to the medical schools. they are supposed to then be returned to the city for what the city considers proper burial, which is a hard island trench. ah, i tried very hard to learn the names of these cadavers because i wanted to reclaim their stories. one of the last of the 22 that day
4:38 am
was pers hanson. ah, even though his body had been cold storage for 3 years, it had been on lists, sent back and forth between the medical school and the medical examiner's office. the medical examiners office had not done who 1st thing in terms of trying to find someone who knew bruce hanson and would care. and it was easy for fear job is to be the last and most important source of information about this person. they had his name, they had his name when he 1st arrived to the more they had his name when they put them on a list to offer as
4:39 am
a cadaver for to section of medical school. when i had the name and i did the 1st basic search, it came up immediately. his ex wife in new jersey for one phone call. and i had her one phone call and i was, she was carrying the phone to her daughter. nobody called us. i never changed my last name. it still hanson. i live in the same state as new jersey. nina had no problem calling me up to find out. mm. it shouldn't. it ended up in there. they should know out there in for 3 years, being in albert einstein, hospital just you know, going through their medical procedures for 3 years. put them in a cold box,
4:40 am
but now gotten them up, put in it's awful it's, it's awful. i'm angry at how it happened. i'm angry with the medical exam or the hospital the people you know, that still won't give me information on hand. you know, it's my father. i should have a right to know how he died. i'm never going to find out with the medical examiners office calling to find out what you know, the hospital not giving, giving you a hard time about getting the records. everybody's hiding something so the hospitals working them with the medical examiner, which is working with hearts island. you know, they obviously don't want people to know most of the mistakes that they made or
4:41 am
things that they just didn't care about. oh thing about all those bums on the street eating. they contacted every single person's family. they throw them probably in the island. ah, there is a pack of water around the try, a seal island in contention between canada and the united states, where the government has suddenly become optimal for lobster in our population years exploded. one of the most valuable fisheries that ever existed. suddenly you had made an canadian fisherman in these waters. at the same time jousting for position and tensions or high violence is bound to happen. this is the last land border dispute between canada and the united states. it could be magnified to the point where there could be cost that would be significant to post countries. border
4:42 am
dispute don't go away. it's assessed. something's going to happen with $100.00 mic. no shit, you know, borders blind to tease and you perish as a merge. we don't have a therapy. we don't to look back seen the whole world needs to take action and be ready. people are judgment, common crisis with we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way. but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is great for the response, has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together
4:43 am
with hello driven by drill shaped bankers. and those with who dares sinks, we dare to ask ah, with, with no your city
4:44 am
assures, for vacation new york city is just to come and have fun in your city is not a place actually be live in sloughing in hydrogen. so i want to bring in today talk a little bit about where we are with the case in the position and arguments the cities making in the fight that i'm having with the city continues. and i told them what you and i have talked about before. like if you tell us where the baby is, they'll drop the lawsuit today. that's what this is all about to. we're trying to find out. they don't believe us. you think it's about money, it's time it's about to search for truth. one of the issues with the city here katrina is. if we establish here that they don't know,
4:45 am
there are other cases like yours that are out there are pending and they don't want to make their law. they don't want to make their precedent. so the further they could push us back and slow us down both ladder, that is things bad, things will happen to the city. so they're part of their delay is to not but this case come to trial because there are other cases that are going to fall shortly behind. and i, i feel that the really in doing much because all they thinking is about the money. and honestly, like i said, i love doing this for money. i want my son back there say ah, what we know right now from, from the record to we have is i talked to was performed the body at some point was that the more we do have some indication on one of the records that the body was released for transport at this point, we don't know if was transport to some type of medical facility for research. we
4:46 am
don't know where that baby was released to. we know where the baby was supposed to be released to and that's the hard island. mm hm. any case that i'm involved with the city of new york is always going to take me years. mm. getting records out of the city of york requires motion after motion after motion for a judge to compel them to respond. the more concerned with security issues and welfare issues and housing issues and all the things that make the city a unique and crazy place. so most likely i was no matter how much recycling didn't ever happen is i can never guarantee that. i'm going to give you an answer that question. and i know that's the most important thing to you. and that's the focus of my case has always been about getting you those answers. i guess we're gonna keep fight in that. i need answers.
4:47 am
why? why do my poor fathers come to holly to join the union? the chain for one cry to the free. equal me terry it. oh and i feel very emotional about it because not only of the soldiers, inter are here for so is my daughter. i named her i asia we conduct ourselves with many questions about our daughter. so we hoped to bring closure to our family. and to bri ana,
4:48 am
love and respect to a soul that we haven't had the opportunity to honor properly for almost 50 years to this day. not to have touched the earth that she's buried in. it behooves me to go over there to lay the 1st wreath at her grades and pay my respects to my daughter who is buried on hot island in potters feel of the city of new york. ah. then i change and change
4:49 am
my plight to bring the honor respect and some type of fitting memorial statue over on hot allen for these soldiers of the civil war. ah, to have a city this modern, this cosmopolitan that still buries the unclaimed dad. the way jacob reese recorded in the 19th century just doesn't make sense. it's archaic, it's bizarre. and yet it also represents
4:50 am
a truth about america, about the western world, perhaps that this tremendous inequality not only still exists but has, has widened. bjork still house the drawer is still a named conjure with it still sounds a musical. no 2 people in some distant horrible world. new york is distinct. new york is always gone its own way. new york has its own bitter humor, its own kind of culture. its own kind of literacy, new york is not sentimental because the city, those not care listening,
4:51 am
not care about. mm. does leave you trash. new york city forces monster. you have to fight you have to actually rush, hold with the city in order to just get the very basic necessity of life. ah. then so the idea of the city having something on its conscience, this is rather small blot, frankly. i mean, with all honor to the dead they are dead are. mm i think that city is always wanted to forget about hold island. city is wanted to
4:52 am
forget about the people who are buried there. it's wanted to forget about the fact that there is a potter's field that there is a place where difficult stories are hidden. mm. new york city is celebrated as the place where anyone can achieve their dreams of but those dreams haven't been achieved by everyone. ah, it's true of people who are totally away digging out the titles for subways, we're building our skyscrapers is true of people who have wound up homeless or because a society shunned them as happened during the aids epidemic. mm . those stories might not be flattering to tell even more. it might tell us things
4:53 am
about our present, that we'd rather not face. ah, mine, we owe it to the people who have been buried there and are being buried there to bring their stories to light. ah, so pay my bill add to the jurisdiction of card island. i believe that we're at a place where we could finally the momentum as brawley to make hard island a public place that is not forgotten. ah, 10000000 new yorkers who built this city made this city the city that it is today. they should not be forgotten. they need a better space to be resting. ah
