now also over the weekend, a large retail crime spree happened in san francisco. a shoplifters wearing hoodies and mask jumped out of cars and run into high and retailers grabbing as much a lute as possible for before jumping back into their cars and racing off all of this. it caught on film, now neiman marcus, nordstrom, lou baton. and why a cell, we're just the most recent incidence, that's very brief and acts, but it's not just the big boxes, but also smaller good stores like cbs and walgreens, who, se, shoplifting in the bay area outpace is the theft at all of their other stores. and the crowns are causing the retailers to limit their hours beef of security measures, and even close their stores completely, all over the rise and theft. but san francisco is not alone. it's organized crime sprees are happening in many major cities, including seattle, where more than 50 arrest have been made linked to 9 at large retail and grocery
stores. in albuquerque, new mexico. the problem is so bad. crime has risen so much police a big box stores have even take the next step, informed an actual unique partnership to combat. so let's talk to the experts about why this is happening and how local government and law enforcement might be. part of the blame we bring in rob, man, it's better and it has to be rob me to show and dominic ego, former police officer in chicago. thanks for joining me gentlemen. thank you. like travis, ok, it's obviously that time of year we understand crime goes up around the holidays. obviously a lot of people are more concerned about shopping than they are necessarily security. but rob, i want to start with you because you've talked about this on your show. i imagine a lot right now the economic environment that we are in right now. does this rise in crime actually surprise you? no surprise me at all. the colonel policies in places like san francisco and other liberal cities, clearly said that you can go in and steal and rob. we've seen it for months and cbs
is targets and those kinds of things. and, and you know what though, scotty, the worst part about it is with the rising inflation, which is hitting middle class and lower middle class families. the hardest is that those folks are losing their targets. they're losing their c, b. s is they're losing their middle class stores where they. ready buy their goods and get their medications because they're the companies are closing them down and it's all based on these weak criminal justice policies with districts attorneys like this show been guy out in san francisco. well, and dominic, when i think of organized crime, i think of mob, i think of my bosses, i think of in the past to all of the different things that happened. and you know that i did prohibition, those sorts of things. but now we're seeing these retail crime rings. is this something new and will private security firms be the only way that stores can effectively protective self as police continue to to be reduced in major areas?
no, this is nothing new. this has been going on for decades when i 1st got the law enforcement, we used to have madams uses and kids, teenagers, into stores and shop up and then they would result on e bags. it's just more, it's brazen now because you have states and district attorneys who are all for political purposes. they're not prosecuting. when i 1st got on the job as cop, it was a felony, was $300.00 for retail stuff and what made it even worse is the policy like loss prevention. they can't, they're not allowed to make any contact or even stop and offender, as god forbid, if that person flees from the place and gets an accident, it's going to be all she li, are the liability. the store cops are showing up doing their jobs are screening at past the states attorney states. her name is go is looking for convictions so that they, when they run for reelection, they can say, hey, look how much crime we have down in the city. so this is a, this is a, a horrible, horrible district and states attorney issue and they are the absolute one's
a blame for this. and yet we're thing that happened in the real city like san francisco, seattle, and other cities. but like i like rob was pointing out, this is actually hurting the community as stores like walgreens are having to close up targets, reducing their hours in that you know, a, this new policy of that for the value either 9 or 50 only concern misty, a misdemeanor therefore, what kind of effect do you believe that having on that someone give this to rob? it's absolutely haven't effect that, you know, or i guess just said the, they're not prosecuting these crimes and it's by policy, these criminals and become so brazen. now we saw the nordstrom issue that you showed in your clipper report, charlotte, 80 criminals, and 25 vehicles showed up and rated the place as if it was a military operation. that tells you that they're organized, there's going to be more of it, and they're going to grow. and there's going to be more organizations grow out of
this. and it's going to spread across the country, especially as blue cities, where the district attorneys and state attorney generals are not prosecuting the crime. ok, but let's talk about the prosecution goes dominic, we talk about this criminal justice reform there calling for and how many are in jail over petty theft includes it including small, small thievery. and yet here's a good example of petty theft. one person adding up with the potential for danger, because like i said, a couple people might get involved in this. there has to be set possibly some weapon that's evolved and 30 people or 80 people showing up at nordstrom. so what is the solution? do we just completely ignore petty crime and like what they're saying, one is to do or do we actually prosecute them but put a tough percentage hoping that it would deter future. you have to get the, the victims, which are the stores or i start getting in gear in actually saying disease attorneys, you know, what, what is your deal? we're opening up in good faith in your communities and you're not prosecuted as these these, these kids, these teens twenties, you are committing these crimes. there's most likely no weapons of all they know
they're not going to get arrested. this has been going on. i'm from illinois, we have seen this for years where states attorneys refused to do their job. they just kicked these criminals back out on the, in the street. and again, it's done again and again and again. so there's no incentive for them to have any type of weapon on them, because then there's a charge are not going to risk that. but if they're gonna go in, they're gonna steal a 1000 hours with a merchandise. no, this, nothing's gonna happen. now everyone's wearing masks, it's going to be harder to sit there and identify and prosecute until that the targets in the wal mart's and the norman marcus. everybody else step up and say, you've had enough. this is not going to go anywhere, but dominic and i with us rob, if they do that, that could also be sort of, they could be probably criticize as possible being racial profiling or even profiling a different group, different genders. they age discrimination. there's all sorts of things that they can show that it's politically correct. woke society that we're living in, so they try to fear away from that. meanwhile, these stores are moving out of these high crime areas that actually need that sort
of retail. so how do retailers when it seems like right now, the system is built against them? broadwell scottish retailers are going to have to, they're going to have to suck it up and ignore the woke. he's out there and ignore this cultural attacks on them and hire private security and start round the nice folks up when they come in. zip tie and put them on their knees and call the police. that's what they need to do. and if we don't do that, if they don't do that, just like you just mentioned that i've said many times the stores are leaving the communities, but they're going to have to get some courage and fight against this cultural attitude. and just do the job that needs to be done if thought the people of these neighborhoods and communities unfortunately are going to be out of luck. they're not going to have any stores that they can go to locally to buy. and
a lot of them don't have transportation because they're at poverty or near poverty and working for. and we're not even talking about the consumers because you could imagine you're actually in shopping where the stores in 80 of these people came running in after you, you yourself might not want to visit that store for a very long time. dominic rob, always great to chat with you. now we've seen it firefighters, police officers and health care workers that go through mandatory corona virus vaccine mandate. and now the department offense says workers should have a job by november 22nd. or the course touch suite has more on what lies ahead for these employees. november 22nd mark the deadline for the department of defense employees to be fully vaccinated. now, according to government officials, this includes the 2 week waiting period after being inoculated. there's a sense of urgency as you've heard a say, the white house continues to push back the mandate for companies with 100 or more employees. this comes over the department of defense follow suit enforcing the mandate for all d o d employees and final member 22nd. today,
i am humble to be one of the 1st of many of the members to see the vaccine. this was christopher miller, the u. s. secretary of defense under the trumpet ministration, last december, receiving one of the earliest shots at the crown of irish vaccine. and now all d o d employees are expected to be fully vaccinated by november 22nd. however, religious or medical exemptions are granted to those who qualify, they will reportedly have to get tested on a regular basis. now this mandate applies to all d o d workers, whether they work in an actual d o d office or elsewhere. visitors and contractors on site will also have to abide by the guidelines. earlier this month, more than 2 dozen republican lead states filed lawsuits challenging president biden's vaccine requirement for private companies. but the white house argues the department of labor has a responsibility to keep worker safe. that comes as the occupational safety and health administration, or requiring their workers to be fully vaccinated by january, 4th, or provide a weekly test. the new emergency temporary standard is which well within osha's
authority under the law, and consistent with osha's requirements to protect workers from health and safety hazards, including infectious disease. now vaccine protests continue to emerge all across the globe. here in california, parents rallied against a school vaccine mandate, australia, rome, austria, the netherlands, and brussels all help protest over the weekend against those vaccine mandates reporting for news. these hughes and hottest suite our team now after the break, after 15 months on remand at design, maxwell finally goes on trial. and while mostly outlets seem to fill the case, doesn't deserve coverage. our team does in line or joint that with a defensive latest request regarding editing 5 ah, i saw a message from an unknown account with how to sell through with my passport as it profile page. i saw pictures of my documents. it will say i also sent a credit contract not i had just 3 days comply with their demands to see if i
didn't send money and they sent out an online. i was supposed to be very dangerous man. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on, often very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very clear to kill time time to sit down and talk my dad is financial from. i'm john did a little about money laundering. first it is, can i see the 3 different? oh good isn't a good start? well, we have our 3 banks all set up here. maybe something in europe, something in america, something overseas in the cayman islands. you know, all these ranks are complicit in there to proceed with. hey,
i'm ready to do some serious my laundry. ok, let's see how we did. well, we've got a nice luxury watch for max and for stacy. oh, beautiful jewelry. and how about ha ha. luxury auto bill? again for mag, you know, it, money laundering is highly regal. copier could watch either a the american affairs watching almost every minute of the trial was called written house last week for the same time, another high profile trial was just getting underway. and yeah, and no one can even seem to get a live picture of the defendant design maxwell, the long time business partner and accuse recruiter for jeffrey epstein is finally
seeing her day in court to bring up on speed on what is happening in the court room said sadly, i think it's wrong, but the public is not allowed legally to watch her with her own eyes as we go. immediate analyst line our line. thanks for joining me. thank you. ok, my grievance about this not being allowed to be televised. it's not necessarily in anybody's hand except for except it's actually law, correct. federal courts don't allow it. they don't want it to happen. a lot of courts don't, don't allow it. juvenile court divorces, equity, gourds. and if i had my way after the rittenhouse case this week, you'd never see another camera ever in a court room ever again. but that's for another discussion. but see here this is the com and i have on this an angel is very macros. i need names, we're not seeing names. transparency has been a big problem with epstein. so could you imagine the information that we might be able to put pieces together if we could see who is being talked about in that
courtroom and line, or do you think if names are mentioned that eventually leak out to the public? well, you've been a very interesting point, scotty and the, and the issue was this. for whom do we have these trials when we have the 6th amendment, the right to a speedy and a public trial is that for you and me in the public? and for fans of chords, or is it to ensure that the defendant isn't carter to way is i'm star chamber. and so it's a very interesting point. but remember years ago, during the god forbid the o j case, judge ito actually let the public here mark firm and dreaded n word testimony, because he said, i feel the public has a right to know legal scholars blow up. they said, this isn't, this isn't a press conference, this is a court. this is
a trial between the state of california in that case and the defendant. we have this idea to somehow we're entitled to know who's behind this and what's going on. so much of what happens in criminal court in particular with confidential informant and national security. we don't know anything, but to very good point you bring up your line. oh, you're correct. i agree that it would be in my best interest, mainly just because i'm so fresh. and i think the general public is frustrated because we don't know who jeffrey epstein was tied to him when this would be the best chance get. but you're right, that is not what is best for the law. that's the best for the press, not the law. we obviously want this to be legally bass, so it won't get thrown out. so when it comes down to it though, what it does lanes at best defense as to why she was involved in the different actions that she was a part of we're seeing right now by virtue of this very aggressive look at wanting to cross examine the victims prior confidentiality agreement, settlement agreements,
and now we learn later on today that the court has allowed her to call a false memory witness. so what it seems to me is that she got going, maxwell and her defense council plan to go full, bore full frontal, wrong turn, perhaps, but full attack on the victims on the people. now this can be catastrophic because if she tries that, if she dares to say and how much did they buy and what did you do? all this does is allow a potential the jury actually to hear how this woman is brow beating and attacking an actual, legitimate victim of sexual abuse. so i don't know where this is going and between you and me, why it's gone to this level. why the government didn't say is maxwell, we don't want you. we want you to give up mr. big or the mr. bigs out there. this is an international trafficking circle. you are
a part of it. and in return over this will make it worth your while. i don't know if anybody's even made her a deal be and also let me also to talk about petty. she might be the only person in the history of american criminal justice who's being charged criminally with lying on this civil deposition. if we charge people for lying, a deposition, we need a separate court that ran 24 hours a day just to handle that. so this is case is bizarre. and you mentioned, where is she? i have received a picture. where is a booking photo? when john gotti rush, lemme anybody, anybody who's arrested tom delay, you name it. there is a phone photo and actual photo is where is it? where is it? i can understand the court room, but this is, this whole thing is just bizarre. and by the way, to be store one thing, one day she says, i live in a rat infested hell hole in this jail. next day she shows up quaffed looking,
elegant, resplendent in or out could tour, doesn't make any sense. you just blow your argument as to how you're being ravaged by these, these, these horrible conditions, this squash you're living. and i mean, this is, this is like, like, skin soy. why? why don't get me wrong. and you get that, you understand, you know, i understand. we went over the big fishes. why do we have to wait on her test? but i know you would think there be a paperwork and a paper trail that we would know who the big fish are, but unfortunately, we're reliant on her final. i know you going to continue to follow this as much as you can. indeed think. ok, so a new survey in the dallas morning noon found that texans were almost twice as likely to vote for oscar winning actor matthew mcconaughey, then top texas democrat beto rourke. meanwhile, pulling from september, found the film star being covenant republican governor greg abbott, in
a 2 way race. now mcconaughey has been hinting about a good campaign, but stopped short of announcing his attention to run. so discuss, we welcome back, our favorite hybrid. it's our author and filmmaker, sean stone. ok, i promise you, i did not bring up this segment. this was not my idea. my producer came to me for x . i might be a little bit of a fan of matthew mcconaughey. so i got to ask you that he's not the kind of intention to run and he reported you haven't chosen a party affiliation, which i think had worked for him in this case. but texans apparently favoring him over career politician. doesn't that speak well for him? and do voters actually care about who had oil teeth are, or do they care more about, you know, maybe magic mike and how well he dances. what was it was the last famous celebrity governor that ran independent wasn't budget even tara, our r m. i worked most the time actually i think we've, they've had more success transitioning from acting to the politics to the
republicans a party surprisingly right with reagan and schwarzenegger being the prime examples . i can't think of a major democrat and the major state, you know, becoming going from acting to politics. so let's see what the economy does if he does indeed throw in. certainly the polls are showing that he would be fatal rourke . and i think that speaks more to the lack of popularity and in texas than it does to mcconick. but overall, you know, kind of as a career, he has a career as an actor. he's, you know, he has what people i think relate to as far as they believe. there's an authenticity to him, which, you know, it's hard, it's hard to get that right. i mean, there are a lot of movie stars, you just think, i don't want, you know, i can imagine tom present for president. right. it's like you're a great, you're great what you do. but the politics people, i think, trust and become a hand away that we will see how it plays out. obviously he does run and what he ultimately, what kind of issues you know, he takes up as his his cause. but you know, it's really too early to call, you know, which direction this could show which direction this race will take next year. and
so we just saw caitlin dinner going through that campaign. the governor's campaign . now granted, it was kind of an uphill battle from the very beginning. they did, the republican party needed better ideas and better candidates. just a g o p needed to embrace diversity. remember how he had a site set on the california governor's race. you know, when you're looking at, even though caitlin failed miserably is this kind of the expansion that republican party is actually needing someone that says, you know, i don't really care about political party lines. here's where i play. even if people don't necessarily know they'd rather take the unknown than what they know at this point. i mean, kayla, i think would be great for the mac and party because as a transgender, male, it's essentially saying that it doesn't, you know, we're not only going on christian values. essentially, you can out, you can be a conservative when it comes to economics and you know, many values, but you can still be more progressive when it comes to, you know, to be q issues. right? so i think she, you know, she do wonderful. addition, publicans, you know,
they had larry elder, a black man running in the, in the governor rates. i mean, i don't know why that's, that was so ignored in this media narrative. the media that loves to portray rates whenever a can, you know, it was really trying to disguise the fact that larry elder read a very decent campaign. and you know, i didn't get nearly the attention. i think he deserved because of his politics. right. but i think that the point is that you'd use the black republican, candace owens and types like this that i think should get more involved. and honestly, i think that there is a, there's a lot of black christian, middle middle class and working last americans that can, that can resonate with republican values. so i don't know that it's necessarily the fact that probably going to lack the diversity. it's more that i think the media has portrayed things in a way that is very skewed. well, it'll be really interesting to see some of the kind of pass movie development. how be accountable that if that's his voting record is the movies in the different projects. he was accountable for, or people like i said, they voted trumping office and he came back with
a business background. but obviously some leverage centers will see what matthew mcconaughey or if he just keeps to teaching. always good to talk with sean. because it well, i want to keep talking with you, follow me on twitter at scottie and use use the hash tag, tim team and b h m for this shown war. download the portable dot to the app for apple or android device. thank you for watching dr. say ah ah sure don't seem an official message there, but sure someone at that the from the check hockey with some
dinner washed them with a new besides exlon me at the whipping and other sheets. usually said almost i also what i'm going to look up in cities, it took us once mentioned, you have the key moments which she is legally and she showed well, the mic no said you know, born is just a piece and you as a merge, we don't have a therapy, we don't have a vaccine. the whole world needs to take action. that would 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. the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together. with o is your media reflection of reality. in a world transformed what will make you feel safe, isolation for community. are you going the right way or are you being
he really is so thing the cops right on police report is an all cash in december 2020. a group of anti finishes. sell out a film crew access for 3 months. so like if people, organization, if an idea that fascism must be opposed, that you can't allow the game while they may kill that faces. but they can say what they believe in. we believe in helping our community. we believe that fascism is one of the major threats to united states has gotten reuben, this is a chance to see who and teeth are really are in order for me to extract my 1st amendment right and say that my life matter have to be on to the teacher to that hallmark is we can't trust the police, we can't trust the government. we can't trust anyone except ourselves to protect ourselves in with
what i will never accept is nobody who under the guise we of you're satisfied. he's pure violence against people. the judge prime minister, the lashing out against protest is off the knights of rioting against tough new copays restrictions. as cases search unlock sounds, a re imposed across europe. main. talk in the fight against coven russian sciences claim their brand new nasal spray vaccine could well help increase uptake among the public and effectively fight transmission. the way from cobra to new york has survey shows that more than half of the cities police wish they never joined the force. we hear from an officer about the creasing pressures they face never worked. the official campaign war promises we're going to actively prosecute cops.
