8:01 pm
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 it failed to act on warnings. one coven victims relative tells us why he's angry. but girl west, it was taken out by a virus and china because our government still allowed to fly in business flights from, with this pretty shocking, ah, broadcasting live director of studios in moscow. this is our to international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. now please have named a 39 year old man who is under arrest after an s u. v was driven into christmas parade crowd in wisconsin, killing 5 people. and has been confirmed that all of those who died were between the ages of 52 and 81. darrell brooks junior faces 5 counts of intentional homicide . and a bit of
8:02 pm
a word of warning there is disturbing video coming up the videos posted on social media networks show the moment the vehicle rammed into the crowd in children's hospital. and wisconsin says it is treating 18 youngsters 6 of whom are in critical condition. more than 40 people were injured. kevin and my colleague earlier spoke to a witness at the parade. it's a big part for their annual thing, and people come from a different towns and stuff to do it. so it's kind of like to kick out the holiday season. they were probably, i don't know, 40000 people there. you were filming it. you come to. 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,
8:03 pm
it was crazy. we were the 1st point where he entered the parade at so we were right around the corner. so when you see that he's worked around the truck, there is a road and then that's very entered at. so we were the 1st people that he made contact with. yes. 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's drag 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. you told his band was performing the upright a guess less while you were filming that. what went 3? absolutely. this must all be so unexpected and it takes you just a moment to work out what's happening around you. first thing though, that went through my head after i realized i couldn't stop the guy was i get the kids off the street into safety i. there's
8:04 pm
a lot of people who never see that i'm and unfortunately i've seen trauma before. i. so i just started getting people in groups connecting them with each other, getting them to safety. 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, talking with the police officers until about 1 o'clock because we actually saw the driver's face and we're giving descriptions that most of my kids are still sleeping now. i really couldn't sleep. so meanwhile, a democratic party staff called the 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
8:05 pm
against the state or to kill them up and reports would have believed that the tragic incident in war kaesha would have helped the country overcome the divisions resulting from the kyle written house trial, which just concluded with an acquittal. but now we're seeing a situation where a democratic party staffer in the u. s. state of illinois is dragging kyle written houses name into the aftermath of the war cache incident. we had mary lou uminski, a democratic party staffer in the state of illinois for do page county. basically bringing up the kyle written house acquittal and tying it to the incident in walk cassia, in which the car plowed into the parade. here's what she said. 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.
8:06 pm
now lemons. he had been the social media director of the do page, county democratic party of illinois. but at this point, no one is listed for that position on the website of the democratic party of du, page county. they have distance themselves from her controversial comments, the democratic policy of du page county immediately several times with mary landscape. once we became aware of her colors and reprehensible posts, she does not speak for us and we end quickly reject her statements about the tragic events that occurred yesterday and walk asia. we as a party denounced violence of any kind. now this brings to the front, how much the written house trial highlighted disagreements between the 2 sides in us politics and the fact that it hernandez, tragedy took place. yet these comments were made in the aftermath shows how incidents like this are being used to fuel internal conflicts in the united states
8:07 pm
. there is a very big gap among the us public. no question about it. with a 4th wave of covert battering europe, you states are reintroducing extremely tough restrictions with blanket curfews and segregation for the vaccinated. the dutch leader has branded those protesting against the move it, it's and it's all to me 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 is that idiots under the guise of being dissatisfied, you share violence against the people who work for you and me every day in the field to keep this country safe.
8:08 pm
oh, 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 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
8:09 pm
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 bog, 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're going to need to be able to show one of those. if you want to do pretty much, any thing in 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 said how the vaccination or you've recovered, or you have a negative test, a lot of places going even further and adopting the 2 g policy that so only allowing access to certain areas if you are well vaccinated or you can prove that you've recovered, we've entered into 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,
8:10 pm
they're not opening at all. some of the most famous markets not opening their doors again this year because of the covert 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 proof of recovery. elsewhere though, they're taking a much hard line. in fact, in humbug, they've come under 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 dont painting a very rosy picture of the state of affairs right now in the 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,
8:11 pm
this is very, very likely. elsewhere in europe, belgian so violence in the capital, brussels on sunday is unsee covered restriction demonstrations. got very ugly indeed. in australia they begin a new national lockdown on monday. it will continue for at least 10 days, but could be extended through till 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 further. now 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 underfunding
8:12 pm
cove in 1900 and failures in social care. and that was even before the pandemic started the demand from the in a chest or at redcoat levels, get the amount of money going into support and provide the services and shrinking. because you mustn't forget, you have to understand how a government handling of the panoramic on a background of a desire to privatize the chest. and let's not forget, before we enter the pandemic. danica was short, short of 10000 doctors, 40000 nurses. this government been in power for 11 years in 2012 the introduced a major legislative change which our soft and care provision in our bags. so we entered depend demik in a very curious situation. the problem is, the chance is being set up to fail. the government wants to tear them resembling the american system where you have skid row, public provision,
8:13 pm
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 covering this pandemic was exposed to vulnerability to whole system emergencies. 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 cobit 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. i've seen nothing wrong with them. co cobra died of loss people did in this country. so the fact that my grandfather in west england was taken out by a virus that started in china because our government still allowed people to fly in
8:14 pm
business flights. we had in february last year. it's pretty shocking. hancock giving away 600000 p p to china again in february doesn't really help. so this is had to improvise. it's been bags. numerous stories of how service is being let down by the life or is johnson the very thought they didn't call it borders? 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, 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
8:15 pm
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 of what's gonna happen when you walk into the street. we walk into the street with the knowledge that we have left them right. these people didn't. we don't need to kind of based buffoonery in charge. we need meritocracy and we need the scientist. we need people talking about the whole. busy process has been done by people that don't understand science, don't take it seriously. it's $56.00 days introduced masks. countries like career in china. been using mass, the some reason in britain we just didn't get the government for money 1st. they fought well, you know, we can keep board is open, which would potentially kill
8:16 pm
a large population of people. but the economy would countries 5 longer 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've lost loads of people in the economies to not to do slot. women and urban communities have suffered a disproportionate, socio economic effects in the panoramic and international inequality have widened. according to a major new global report from the red cross, coven, 119 has amplified inequalities, the stabilize 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,
8:17 pm
including worsening unemployment and loss of income. there's been an 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 most vulnerable. if i'd defeat the doors were leaving and if you go condition before the crisis and once again, that is fun. dami gus bruce and saw that most marginalized groups, we men and she them, as i said in the, in the developing countries. but not all, even in the western countries, he's been very, very clear now in the. ready in the setting said, a new din number all the way up and especially
8:18 pm
the most difficult enables for the address 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 the community to the call to the government to, to do more, to protect that most we're going to border. and so far as they are still leading the consequences of the crisis. these, i'm very broad to that all of the women in many, many societies that i created for the specific storm and as a consequences of the, of the, of the day mika plus when, when it comes to the, to the jobs in that market, on the job market, the women are often employed in 4 months sector, and once again, the informal takes effect on why not to be of the most exposed to the confinement
8:19 pm
and low balance. we must use the opportunity to address form that project. they may important the need to create a new fabric of the society to be the society around around the values and bring people that it seems we are losing. and this is something that, that for me, is a streaming extremely by more than half of new york police officers say that they would not join the force if they had that option and do it again. that's from an internal pull of nearly 6000 uniformed officers taken in march, which has just been revealed by the new york post. nearly 3 quarters of officer surveyed, also think that the public does not have a good relationship with police with a majority feeling the public disrespects and just trust them. also an incredible 80 percent of responders to the polls that they are afraid of aggressively fight crime due to fears of criminal liability being sued or unfairly discipline. what
8:20 pm
perhaps most alarming is that the survey was taken before the landmark police reform initiative in may, which banned police officers from using certain choke. colds, assigned a special prosecutor to police involved deaths and limited qualified immunity, which protects officers against civil lawsuits. now got open the door to civilians looking to su, police officers for certain suspected violations. now prior to those reforms, police said that they believed crime rates would become even worse. let's look at the statistics. 79 percent of those who responded to the survey said that they did not believe the city would become any safer in the next 2 years with new york crime rates up for october. that would be 11.2 percent on last year. that's a major concern to the police department. police officer sergeant vick arkham says police officers have become increasingly stigmatized. every cops i speak to in the y p d. just feel that everyone is against them from the public to the elected officials, to the mayor. even the higher ups b, y p,
8:21 pm
you just feel like there's no right they can ever do valuable crime, fighting tools like spot question frisk were taken away. you know, legal options for people who want to su, police were expanded, you know, every, every elected official. now has a platform, they want to go directly after police. this is going to be getting one safer, was going to make cops apprehensive and empower in bold in criminals. as we've seen that, the poll didn't surprise me or didn't surprise long foresman experts at all. you know, like i said, we want to have programs like defun, the police, which are directly going after cops. you have elected officials standing up and they show more empathy towards hard criminals than towards the police that actually went out in corporate criminals. you know, we have elected officials who campaign promises we're going to actively prosecute cops, or what else could you possibly expect to happen? cuts on going to when i got the risk, their future, their, their family, their,
8:22 pm
their financial will be. so they're going to take a step back and this isn't going to make anyone's, they would say for us state department has called on the you to boost its military autonomy by raising defense spending state department counselor, derek chalet says that in washington, it's their own interest we want a stronger europe, it's in america's interests for europe to be more capable militarily. it's important to get out to the theoretical row, the think tank realm, strategical autonomy and to talk about pragmatic practical solutions. chalet added that european defense ministers have long pledged to spend more on weapons, but that so far they've always been blocked when they go back to their parliaments and governments for approval. he also offered washington's expertise on what kind of capabilities member states should focus on. but a political analyst told us its main interest in wanting all of this is to sell more american weapons allies are
8:23 pm
a lot of cracks within the nato alliance. and we can mentioned when you transfer to go out recently about what the us did by stabbing france and back and taking over 50, doing your budget a france to people in france sort of thing, but we're a major arms. we've got a big arms industry today. we want to sell arms. why would be by american if we can build our own arms? and we see that this big difference between the strategies of the nation, some of what snapped of nation faced in europe and the u. s. the biggest problem, the u. s. is facing, is having a collective strategy. there's inviting within the within nato, and there's nothing more than the u. s. can bring today and they spend more money and buying my weapon. this is definitely not something which is going to wait european countries natal country into strengthening their side within the alliance washington. it's going to have to find something much more delicate and more
8:24 pm
strategic than that view and has raised the alarm over the humanitarian catastrophe. and i can't stand where half the population, fishes, starvation, as the winter sets in. ah, to see the cash usage, the prices change dramatically and just spread across the country and challenging a huge amount of hours with a $1000000.00 facing prospects with immediate. ah, just what he needs because his claps promise kind of fall and we'll see real catastrophe in this country. a suddenly with suspension or was amounts or
8:25 pm
with him to be the foundation of somebody basic services for jobs as well. but the health education, my sector, agriculture absolutely key and those who suspended house hundreds of thousands of people with pro site that comes with the documentation but to rely on the right lifestyle was being ready for postures this year with dr. right from the start with the start of the year to project that 9 out of 10 of the largest organize the cities and towns about kind of started with acute food insecurity. honda on a daily basis in mm us claims it has allocated more than $470000000.00 for humanitarian aid to the afghan people this year,
8:26 pm
including $144000000.00 back in october and various humanitarian organizations that have been distributing vital goods to the country, but the taliban says us sanctions dwarf, the aid is given and our crippling the country preventing people from getting the supplies that they need. or he's asked south taylor 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 to deceive it of working with the taliban. oh, of course, if necessary will, will 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,
8:27 pm
we must do everything to avert the real risk that is out there of a major famine and humanitarian disaster. we will continue to support the afghan people will lead with our diplomacy or international influence on our humanitarian aid. well, all those lead us embarrass still by the failure to impose democracy and others by force turned to another favorite tactic. economic suffocation. that's right. they've shot the 8 bank a lot. all foreign assistance has been halted. but that's not all. one, washington and it's nato allies fled. they took all afghanistan's cash. the u. s. has frozen 9 and a half $1000000000.00 worth of acids belonging to the afghans central bank. so even those lucky few who do have savings can't take anything out. because washington says, so it's a wonder the taliban is asking congress to give it all back. the freezing of us,
8:28 pm
it's an economic sanctions, can home health education of a civil services from which the general public benefit damage to these building blocks will serve as the worst memory ingrained in 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 oh, 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 always. and so that's the case in syria,
8:29 pm
and that's the case. and so many different other countries as well. and so they, the people suffer a for the policy of international sanctions, not government or the west. they sell this to their own population. the u. s. will sell to its own pumps, 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 is seen almost like the, the moral away of waging war when in fact, economic sanctions are, 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 not people on the f, b i's most wanted lest 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 drones strike blow apart his country, the taliban officials, the u. s. refuses to recognize,
8:30 pm
will get their monthly checks that doctors are now walking unpaid in hospitals with holes in their roofs, operating theatre the shutting because there's no electricity teachers can't afford to travel to 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 the, the country of afghan in order to create some level of strife or instability that might provide the pre conditions a for perhaps a either regime change which would be ideal for washington, maybe or a civil war where the, the west or an international peacekeeping force will need to come in again to restore order and so forth so he can see another cycle possibly a beginning. now,
