ah ah, it is fear that the number of victims could rise after a car plowed into a christmas parade in wisconsin and the u. s. 5 people were killed and at least 18 children are in the hospital. 6 are critically ill. we hear from a father who witnesses, what happened. 8 kids were down in the kid that i was administering 1st aid to both of his b, where like ran over and his legs are broken. full scale violence stand off over new covered restrictions across europe. while the dutch pm dismisses protesters as this satisfied the idiots and britons health service, the n h s at breaking point with record waiting lists. that's as the government watchdog finds, it was ill prepared for the pandemic and failed to act on warnings. one covered
6:01 pm
victims relative tells us why he is angry. so the thought that my grandfather, poor old west england was taken off by a buyer's side, china, because our government did allow people to fly in business flights. we separate them this pretty shocking, ah, broadcasting live direct from studios in moscow. this is our international. i'm john thomas. certain. glad to have you with us. right now. police haven't named a 39 year old man who is under arrest as a suff, as a suspect after an s. u. v was driven into a christmas parade crowd in wisconsin, killing 5 people. it has been confirmed that all victims were aged between 52 and 81. gerald brooks junior faces 5 counts of intentional homicide and a bit of warning. there is a disturbing video coming up now. oh,
6:02 pm
videos posted on social networks show the moment the vehicle ran into the crowd. a children's hospital in wisconsin says it's treating 18 youngsters 6 of whom are in critical condition. where then 40 people were injured or he's given on, spoke to a witness f period. it's a big part of their annual thing and people come from different towns and stuff to do it. so it's kind of like to kick up the holiday season. they were probably, i don't know, 40000 people there. you were filming it, you kind of so it all 1st hand before we have a talk about it. let's just show a view is just a little clip from some of what you filmed. oh, my god, it was crazy. we were the 1st point where he entered the parade at so we were right
6:03 pm
around the corner. so when you see that he's worked around the track, there is a road and then that's very entered at. so we were the 1st people that he made contact with. yeah. and he was doing at least $35.00 or 40 miles an hour down the crowded street. it was just an absolute instant chaos. he managed to go almost the entire length of the parade. when he went through our band, he struck a 8 kids were down in the kid that i was administering. first aid to both of his feet were like ran over and his legs were broken. your daughter's bond was performing upright against us while you were filming that. what went 3 ahead is literally this must all be so unexpected and it takes you just a moment to work out what's happening around you. first thing though, there went through my head after i realized i couldn't stop the guy was i get the kids off the street in the safety. and there's a lot of people who, who've never seen that i'm and unfortunately i've seen trauma before. i. so i just
6:04 pm
started getting people in groups connecting them with each other, getting them to safety. i, i'm trained in combat 1st aid. so i started, you know, checking the pulses, making sure the kids are bree, then, you know, not move and tell people to get some blankets out here. my family and kids are still traumatized. we were talking with the police officers until about 1 o'clock because we actually saw the driver's face and were giving descriptions that most of my kids are are still sleeping now i, i really couldn't sleep. so meanwhile, democratic party, stafford caused a uproar soon after the incident by using a series of contentious twitter post to sarcastically equate the incident to kyle written houses, acquittal for murder in the same state. it was probably just self defense. the social media director said, using the same terminology, used in the acquittal of written house and referring to the situation as karma against the state. up for more than the entire situation,
6:05 pm
we can cross live to his mouth and who is in the face right now. caleb, what connection was mary lewinski trying to make when she made those posts? well, this horrific incident in war cache seems to kind of overshadowed the divide and public opinion surrounding the verdict of the kyle written house trial. but not entirely now. we now have a democratic party, stafford dragging kyle written houses name into the assessment and the aftermath of the horrendous walk hasha incident. we have basically a situation where do page county democratic party staff are mary levinsky from now from illinois. she mockingly compared the incident to carma for the state of wisconsin and for the people of wisconsin for dropping charges and ultimately acquitting kyle written house at the widely publicized trial. public opinion is very, very divided. here is what this democratic party staff are said in the aftermath of
6:06 pm
the walk, asha incident, it was probably just self defense. i'm sad, i'm sad anytime any one dies, i just believe in karma. and this came around quick on the citizens of wisconsin. now she also said that blood the blood of the victims is on the hands of wisconsin . citizens saying the state is reaping what it's so is now the public was flabbergasted by these remarks. there was a social media of fire storm. now lemon sky was said to have been the social media director of the do page, county, democratic party in illinois. there is no one now listed on their website for that position. and the democratic party of do page county was quick to distance itself from her controversial remarks. the democratic party of 2 page county immediately several times with mary landscape. once we became aware of her colors and reprehensible posts,
6:07 pm
she does not speak for us and we quickly reject her statements about the tragic events that occurred yesterday and walk asia. we as a party denounced violence of any kind. now lazansky has since deleted and removes her comments from social media. however, screenshots are being circulated and the outrage still persists. this indicates how deeply the united states is divided and how much the kyle rittenhouse trial seems to have highlighted a real gap among the u. s. public and how they assess events. all right, are to kill him off and seeing across the story for us in the united states. right now, switching gears now, a 4th wave of coven battering europe. you states are reintroducing extremely tough restrictions with blanket curfews and segregation for the unvaccinated. the dutch leader has branded those protesting against the move idiots and excel
6:08 pm
as prime minister and as a liberal. i will always defend the right to demonstrate in this country. that is part of our democracy, of our rules of law. but what i will never accept that it is under the guise of being dissatisfied. you ship violence against the people who work for you and me every day in the field to keep this country safe. ah good prime minister marketer then not pulling any punches when it comes to how he feels about those that took part in knights of violence across the netherlands over the weekend just gone. in fact, in rotterdam, 3 riots is that we had to received medical treatment for gunshot wounds. and our
6:09 pm
investigation is underway to try and establish whether those shots had been fired by the police. previous reports had said that said the police had fired warning shots, as they struggled to contain with what the, the city's mer has called an orgy of violence. elsewhere in the netherlands in was in dow and elementary school was set on fire also in goin again, shops were smashed open. there was looting that went on here in germany. we didn't see those type of scenes over the weekend. what we do have heading into this week is a lot of new measures being taken to try and stop rocketing cove at 19 figures. in fact, in parts of the state of buttons voting bulk, you're going to be facing at 10 p. m. curfew not allowed out your house at all as they try and get numbers down in that area. proof of vaccination recovery or a negative test you got, you need to be able to show one of those. if you want to do pretty much anything in
6:10 pm
some of germany's hardest hit states, including saxony and bavaria, that's called the 3 g method. basically that you need to provide proof that you've, as i said, we had a vaccination or you've recovered or you have a negative test, a lot of places going even further and adopting a 2 g policy that so only allowing access to certain air is if you are well vaccinated or you can prove that you've recovered. we've entered in through the holiday period here in germany, and from monday at around a lot of the country christmas markets opened up. in fact, in some places such as munich, they're not opening at all. some of the most famous markets, not opening that doors again this year because of the coven pandemic. however, here in berlin, some are going to be doing just thought you're going to need to pass to g system proof of vaccination or proof of recovery elsewhere though they're taking a much hard line. in fact, in humbug, they've come under
6:11 pm
a little controversy as they've, they've erected essentially offense through the christmas market. one side being for the vaccinated, the other side being for the own, vaccinated a lot of measures being put in place. and we are expecting perhaps even more to come into play here in germany. the german health submitted state yen spawn really painting a very rosy picture of the state of affairs. right now. i need to get them in the us been to us probably by the end of this winter or sometime cynically said pretty much everyone in germany will be vaccinated, recovered or dead. but it's true with the highly contagious delta. very, this is very, very likely. elsewhere in europe, a belgian so violence in the capital, brussels on sunday is unsee covey. restriction demonstrations got very ugly indeed . in australia, they begin a new national lockdown on monday. will continue for at least 10 days,
6:12 pm
but could be extended through until the 13th of december. while in france, alarm bells ringing their with the countries health ministers saying they've been shocked at how quickly case numbers have increased across the country. could well be expecting to see new restrictions in france. very soon. britton's health secretary has admitted that the national health service waiting list, which has already hit record highs is likely to rise even further. up to date. there are around 6000000 people waiting for scheduled hospital treatment. the chief executive of a group that represents health service leaders has attributed delays to under funding, coven 19, and failures in social care. and that was even before the pandemic started the demand from the in a chest or at redcoat levels. yet the amount of money going into support and provide a service is shrinking because you mustn't forget you have to understand how the government's handling of the panoramic on a background of
6:13 pm
a desire to privatize the chest. and let's not forget, before we enter the panoramic again, it was short, so short of 10040000 nurses. this government's been in power for 11 years in 2012 to introduce a major legislative change which our soft and care provision will bags. so we entered depend demik in a very carrier situation. the problem is, the chance is being set up to fail. the government wants to do them with ambling the american system where you have skid row, public provision, and the middle class out for private insurance. that's what's going on and health care leaders are not filling this out to the public. so then on our side, i'm afraid. meanwhile the u. k. government has been accused of not doing enough with a new report by the national audit office, criticizing its response to cov, it. this pandemic was exposed to vulnerability to whole system emergencies.
6:14 pm
although the government had plans for an influenza pandemic, it did not have detail plans for many non health consequences and some health consequences of a pandemic. like coven 19 there was limited oversight and assurance of plans in place. and many pre pandemic plans were not adequate. it was my grandfather who died on christmas eve. he went in for a routine or infection. obviously nothing wrong with them. co cobra died of loss people did in this country. so the fact that my grandfather, rural west, england was taken out by a virus that started in china because the government still allow people to fly in business flights. in february last year. it's pretty shocking. my hancock giving away 600000 p p to china. the get in february, really how so this is how to improvise. it's been bags. numerous stories of
6:15 pm
how service is being let down by the life or johnson. the very thought they didn't, board is, goes to show that they didn't understand this just this would have on, on a chess, along with the mental health about the entire time. the report also note that despite warnings about potential shortcomings ahead of the outbreak of the government failed to act, it also suggested officials were to wrapped up in preparations for breakfast. however, downing street has defended its response, saying the pandemic was unprecedented. we have always said there are lessons to be learned from the pandemic and have committed to a full public inquiry in spring. we prepare for a range of scenarios, amal, there were extensive arrangements in place. this is an unprecedented pandemic that has challenged health systems around the world. tons of things are unprecedented. walking into the road to the rest. what's gonna happen when you walk into the street. we walk into the street with the knowledge that we have left to right.
6:16 pm
these people didn't, we don't need to kind of base buffoonery in charge. we need meritocracy. we need the scientists. we need to understand what the talking about. the whole process has been done by people that don't understand science, don't take it seriously. it's 56 days to introduce masks, countries like career and china been using some reason in britain. we just didn't get the government for money 1st. they fought well, you know, we can keep all this open, which would potentially kill a large population of people. but the economy with countries 5 on the or we can close it and economy will take a hit while they've done this, i tried to do option a, it didn't work. we lost loads of people in the economies to not to do slot, women and urban communities. have suffered disproportionate, socio economic effects in the pandemic and international inequality have widened
6:17 pm
according to a major new global report from the red cross. coven, 119 has amplified inequalities destabilized communities and reverse development gains made in the past decades. we will never truly be able to say that this pandemic is over. if the socio economic comes are not addressed. any action will be meaningless if we do not also consider the consequences of violence, discrimination, and exclusion in an integrated way. it will continue to be a crisis that affects us all. the report highlights some of the worst consequences of the crisis, including worsening unemployment and loss of income. there has been in accompanying increase in food insecurity with communities globally finding it harder to feed their families. women in particular have become more exposed to sexual and gender based violence, as well as bearing the brunt of subsequent mental health impacts. the red cross and red crescent president told us how he is deeply worried about societies,
6:18 pm
most vulnerable. i did not. doors were leaving and if you got condition before the crisis, and once again, the idea is dami got screwed up and saw that most marginalized groups, women, and she, they're not, as i said in the, especially in the developing countries, but not all, even in the western countries he's been very, very, very clear now in the. ready in the 15 said a new, but these are the number all the way up and especially in the most difficult enable the add this to reach. so these is something that continue to happen. and unfortunately, despite all the calls. busy that we may not on the ask that you might need that community to the call to the government do aren't going to do more to protect the most about it. i'm fortunate so far as they are still leading the consequences of
6:19 pm
the crisis. these unfair approach to that. all of the women in many, many societies that are created for the specific storm and as a consequences of the of the, of the mika class. when, when it comes to the, to the jobs in the market over the job market, the women are often employed in the 4 months sector. and once again, the informal effects, why not be of the most exposed to data confinement and low downs. we must use these opportunity to address formed projects. they make it important to create a new hobby company society to be the society around around values and bring people to that it seems we are loosing. and this is something that, that for me, is a streaming extremely vital more than half of new york police officers said that they would not join the force if they have option to do
6:20 pm
it again. that's from an internal poll of nearly 6000 uniformed officers taken in march, which has just been released and revealed by the new york post. now nearly 3 quarters of officers surveyed, also think that the public does not have a good relationship with the police. with the majority, feeling the public disrespects and distrust them. also an incredible 80 percent of respondents say that they are afraid to aggressively fight crime due to fears of criminal liability being sued or unfairly disciplined. what's perhaps the most alarming is, well that the survey took place before the landmark police reform initiative in may, which bent police from using choke holds. assigned a special prosecutor to police involve death and limited qualified immunity which protected officers against civil law suits. that opened the door is civilians looking to sue please for certain suspected violations. now prior to these reforms,
6:21 pm
please said that they had believed crime rates would become even worse. now. 79 percent of those who responded to the survey said that they did not believe the city would become any safer in the next few years with new or crime rate for october 11, point 2 percent on last year. that's a major concern to the police department. police officer sergeant zeek are come, says police officers have become increasingly stigmatized. every cops i speak to in the y p v just feels that everyone is against them from the public to the elected officials, to the mayor, to even the higher ups be in my opinion, just feel like there's no right they can ever do valuable crime. fighting tools like stop question frisk were taken away. you know, legal options for people who want to sue police were expanded. you know, every, every elected official now has a platform. they want to go directly after police. this isn't gonna make anyone
6:22 pm
safe. it was going to make cost apprehensive and empower, embolden criminals. as we've seen, know, the elected officials are doing what they think the public wants. meanwhile, people on the street, me on myself, other other cops. you know, we're doing things. we're having people say no, we want you in our neighborhoods. so it's going to take the public, taking, making a stand and going, you know, you're not going to pull cops are unable to rely on them for safety. while he's worked with officials, they have security details living gated neighborhoods. i think corey bush from st. louis bragg a couple weeks ago about how she spent $70000.00 on her security detail. the average person on the street does not have $70000.00 to spend on security detail. so if you want pain in your neighborhood as a civilian, you're going to have to vote people when they're going to support you are going to support the police and support general safety for your neighborhood. the u. s. has raised the alarm over the humanitarian catastrophe. enough dentist and we're half
6:23 pm
the population faces starvation as the winter sets in. ah, to see the cash usage, the parson sang dramatically and just spread across the country frantically and challenging savannah acuity mountain. ours with a ww facing for prospects with immediate. ah, just waiting for my caps promise kind of fall. then we'll see real catastrophe. it was a submarine suspension or was amount or with the foundation of somebody basic services, jobs as well. but the health education,
6:24 pm
i'm sick to agriculture. absolutely key and those were suspended pos, hundreds of thousands of people with pro site up close with those that are documentation, but don't rely on the rain or something being ready for pastures this year. with dr . right from the start was from the start of the year to projected that 9 out of 10 of the largest organize the cities and towns about kind of started with cute food security on a daily basis in mm the u. s. claims it has allocated more than $470000000.00 for humanitarian aid to the afghan people this year, including $144000000.00 back in october. and various humanitarian organizations
6:25 pm
have been distributing vital goods to the country. but the taliban says. busy us sanctions dwarf the aid it has given and are crippling. the country, preventing people from getting the supplies that they need are, teens, it's ask your tailor comments. the war might be over, but for afghans life is still a battle as they stand by the roadside selling that possessions in exchange for a scrap of bread that probably asking where all the western leaders who promised to stand by us, we will remain at the sight of afghan women and men doing our duty to protect those . we can protect you. did you need a working with the taliban? oh, of course if necessary. we'll, we'll go on. and our commitment to afghanistan is lost. there are very good reasons for continuing to stand by the people of afghanistan after the withdrawal of the troops, at least in the context of developing assistance. we must do everything to avert the real risk that is out there of
6:26 pm
a major famine and humanitarian disaster. we will continue support the afghan people we will lead with our diplomacy or international influence and our humanitarian aid. well, all those leaders embarrass still by their failure to impose democracy and others by force turned to another favorite tactic, economic suffocation, that's right. they've shot the 8 bank, and not all foreign assistance has been halted. but that's not all when washington and it's nato allies fled. they took all afghanistan's cash. the u. s. has for is an 9 and a half $1000000000.00 worth of assets belonging to the afghans central bank. so even those lucky few who do have savings can't take anything out. because washington says so little wonder the taliban is asking congress to give it all back . the freezing of us, it's an economic sanctions, can home health, education, and other civil services from which the general public benefit damaged to these
6:27 pm
building blocks will serve as the worst memory ingrained and afghans at the hands of america. but following a 2 decades long pattern of pacing little value on afghan life, the u. s. is not backing down. now. u. s. officials made clear to the taliban for years that if they pursued a military takeover rather than a negotiated settlement with fellow afghans than critical non humanitarian aid provided by the international community, in economy enormously dependent on aid, including for basic services, would all but cease that is what occurred so washington wants to see reform before handing over any aid. that's fine. a lot of people would agree, but they're ignoring one on can truth. it's not going to affect the government. what it does is affect the people are always and so that's the case and syria, and that's the case. and so many different other countries as well. i'm so they, the people suffer a for the policy of international sanctions,
6:28 pm
not government or the west. they sell this to their own population, the u. s. will sell to its own pocket constituents and so forth. as this is a better option than going to war. we're going to put maximum pressure on. we're going to put sanctions on it as seen, almost like the, the moral a way of waging war when, in fact, economic sanctions are a, is as devastating if, if not more devastating than military intervention really to, to the people in those countries. and that's the point, it's all people on the f, b i's most wanted list, he'll get punished. it's the average man on the street. the one he's already spent 20 years looking down the barrel of an american gun. and what drones strike off to drone strike blow apart his country, the town of on officials, the u. s. refuses to recognize, will get their monthly checks that doctors are now walking unpaid in hospitals with holes in their roofs, operating theatres, the shutting because there's no electricity teachers can't afford to travel to
6:29 pm
school. keeping with tradition, washington is punishing the very people who don't deserve it. this is probably the worst possible approach and it says to me that it's the only conclusion you can draw from this is that the u. s. is trying to strangle that, the country of afghan in order to create some level of strife or instability that might provide the pre conditions or for perhaps either regime change which would be ideal for washington, maybe. or a civil war where the, the west or an international peacekeeping force would need to come in again to restore order and so forth. so we can see another cycle possibly beginning. now, through this current situation, no man left behind, that's the proud slogan of the us armed forces. and yet here we are not one,
6:30 pm
but tens of millions left behind and hunger in poverty. and in despair. does it for me? i'll be back in 30 minutes with another look, and this is our contract with a short, don't even the fish one, mr. but you're from one of the furniture, a lot of discussion with the new besides bixler i me at the whipping and i bet you can usually.
