Now, this conversationgets very grim and very dark and can be triggering for some people. Atone point we also watch and listen to the body cam footage from the incidentthat was recently released. If this kind of thing is going to be troublingto you, want to give you a for warning that that's going to begoing on so you can take whatever precautions you feel are necessary. But wedidn't want to go into this discussion, especially with US watching the video,without giving you a heads up that what you see and or here may bedisturbing, so please take that in mind. I will put time codes in thedescription of this show, both for the video watchers and for the audiolisteners, so that if you find that you're not willing or able to listento that portion of the show, you can skip aground as needed. Thankyou, guys, so much for your consideration and you continue to support andlistening to of this show. And with that being said, we now takeyou to this week's episode of the Basement Lounge. Welcome to the Basement Loungepodcast with your host Mike Shay and Mike Wells. Sit Back, grab adrink, relax, let's see where the time takes us enjoy shit. Man, what's been going on since those dates? Sucks days, getting divorced. Whatthe fuck? I know it's fucked up. is on John Oliver lastnight because his entire episode was about the vaccine and like debunking all the allthe fucking conspiracies, and then one of those came up. was like BillGates put a microchip in it too, and he's like no, here's theproof. We his joke. Proof was that this interview with Bill Gates andhis wife, and his wife was like trust me, he I've even askedhim and he says the technology is not even possible and it's nothing that he'severy for thought about out loud to me and I was like that's a weirdway to phrase that. Yeah, Twenty Seven Years Bill Gates getting divorced.Well, if I get that, I think it's wild. Yeah, she'sgonna has so many people side into her DM's just because of how rich she'sgoing to be. Apparent. I mean they sound like i read his likething. Has Post about her like just left, not let her whatever.His statement. Statement. Yeah, why can't think of that? I mustsaid memorium or in memorium of our marriage, and it seemed like it was verycordal friendly, like they're gonna be friends. They just it'd sounded likethey just fell out of love. Yeah, we got a figure twenty seven yearsand he's so wrapped up in everything with tracking people, so I don'tpole and keeping tabs on a yeah, I don't see this being a JeffBezos situation where she fucking takes like half his money and donates it all thefucking charity like Jeff a soaps is also cheating the entire time. It's TrueBill Gates is quite cheating with a robot.

But yeah, well, I thinkwhat happened when she found his diary where he she found out he actuallywas having a secret gay relationship with Steve Jobs prior to his death. Jesus, I could see that happening. I could too. They were like thefucking best of friends, which is hilarious that everyone thinks Microsoft and apple we'retrying to fuck each other over. It's like those guys fucking get drunken jerkeach other off. When you talking about I mean like there's only two atthat time. There's only two people that could they could only relate to eachother. Yeah, Oh, yeah, nobody could relate to them at they'relike, well, even even if Steve Jobs was alive to day, theywould still be just these two guys have on a pedestal. Then what wasthe other the other guy that would it was Steve Chops. Can't think hisname. Oh, the guy who was working with him. Yeah, wasn'the act? Why was the next? Only other guy that would be likeyeah, I get like these guy, like I get every like I getit, and he's but he's he like like jobs was the showman. Wasn'tact. was just the power behind the chair and he just likes to keepto himself. And so for that one every when he was dating Kathy Griffin. Yeah, which is really weird, so fucking weird. That was sucha publicity stunt on her part. I don't know if it was. Well, because it was when she was doing that show my life on the dealis. But did you see her ex husband, her rex has, wasa big guy too, was he? Yeah, and it kind of thenthat look alike. But you're right. Yeah, he was a he waskind of a big, Dorky guy. Yeah, so I kind of madesense. I was like, but wasn't. But their divorces, because he waslike stealing money and Shit, wasn't? I honestly have no idea because Iwas I was watching my life on the deal is, because it wasfucking funny. It was when it was when Cathy Griffin was was really hot, hot as in popular, not like that fucker. But you know,I got think redhead. I have a thing for redheads, but I couldnot have sex to there and that said voice. Man. I mean probablythere was. I remember there was an old family guy joke where they jokethat she was Peter's cousin and I was like, honestly, I could believethat. That's fucking fun. Yeah, so's a Bill Gates getting divorced.fucking mortal Kombat came out on bets. I sucks so bad I never watchedit. Oh, so I'll say I'll say this, like the potential fora really good movie is there. I think it specially like four movies,though. That's what they're saying, and if now that I know that,but I get because it's just a huge set up for the next movie,Das everybody is saying, and like because I was like didn't even have atournament. No, they mentioned it every ten seconds. But my bother theworld combat tournament and Hey, the world combat tournament of the other world.I was like we gonna see it? Oh, it's in the next movie. Oh well then fuck, because everybody's like the One guy, Cole thatlike like was like a character, like why is he even in the movie? I actually I had a tweet not go viral, but I think it'sup to like seven hundred retweets. I tweeted a picture of him and itjust says like in the award for most pointless character in two thousand and twentyone goes that's fucking funny, because he he's not the whole. His wholething, and I don't mind spoiling this, is because he's his whole thing,is that he's a descendant of Scorpion. Okay, so like the opening tenminutes, like Ja Damon, it's Scorpions sub zero going at it right, right, yeah, I seen that. They release that? Oh did they? They released that on Youtube. I want to say question. Itwas like the opening like seven or eight minutes or something like. Yeah,it's a killer fucking sequence. It like it reminded me of the Last Samuraia lot, which is actually funny because the guy playings Scorpion was in thelast Samurai. But, Holly Fuck he was. Yeah, he was theguy who was like fucking with Tom Cruise the whole time. He has likelike watching him the whole time. But if that opening sequence I was likeshit at this is the movie I'm about to get. This is going tobe great, then the rest of the movie is a big fucking joke.Are the acting wasn't great. Yeah, the acting wasn't great. They shouldhave just like they should have made made the main character beat Sony and Jack'sbecause, like he meets them and they're like, Oh, we've been investigatingand trying to track down this thing for ages, and I'm like cool,show me that, I was already done. Okay, and then, like theyget to the temple and they're like Oh, so, and you can'tfight with this because she doesn't have the birth mark, and I'm like okay, well then show me, like show... her journey to look at sheeventually gets the birth mark and I'm like cool, because when you kill somebodythat has it, it transfers to you. Gosh, it. I'm like cool, well, if you sh if you make her the main character,when she gets it, I'll give a shit. But she gets it inlike in, like in, like she like five seconds and then suddenly she'sjust now she's an equal, and I was like, I don't care,Huh, and I want everybody was saying it was like an origin story.Makes this like an avengers type feel the sense a that chr you everything atonce. Yeah, they did. They try to introduce too much, allthese characters, and it's like you've got my pose. I think too wasthe reason why I hated the fact they created this Cole character so much,is because it's like you've got a thousand characters in these games and you stillhad to just make up one for your movie. Well, it'd be fair. What the rest summers to be really good, I would be like Isaid, like I said, the the the pieces for a really good moviewere there. I think if they had had cole turn into Scorpion at theend, I think it would have been a lot better, would have madea lot more sense. But Scorpion just then just appears and I was likeso then, what the fuck was the point of this guy? Because throughoutthe whole movie he keeps having like visions of Scorpion burning in hell, andit kind of lays the ground like, oh, he's going to like becomeScorpion and that he doesn't. HMM, I'm sure that they or something outthe fight. It was his pie almost too much and one. How isthe movies? I not even two hours. It's an hour and a half.It's really short. Yeah, and that's a lot to put in them. I want to see the Snyder cut of our it's an hour thirty five. US All makes so much more sensual. It just sun is backstory. Butthe fights are cool. I mean Kano's The coolest fucking character in themovie. I hate him and that's that's I feel weird saying that. It'slike Kano's the best part of the movie. I don't know what that says aboutthe movie, but Kano's fuck it. He's funny, he's got like actuallylike he's actually got like an arc and he's got really good scenes.I heard he got to play sub zero. He's such a fast fighter they hadto slow down his filming the well and slow that. They told himto slow down, I believe because he's actually like a he's a martial artist. His his fight like, I mean you see, you seen the openingopening light with him in Scorpion. I mean it, the fights in themovie, especially his, are to fucking die for, like it was.They were so cool and it's gory as shit, like there's so much bloodand fucking movie. I need to watch it still. I'll give you this. It is. It is a million times better than mortal Kombat annihilation,but that's not trying. Yeah, that's claymation. I don't annihilation clamation.Now now it's it's weird for me because I was never a moreal Kombat fangrowing up. I never had the games. My Mom wouldn't let me play himbecause I was I was a kid, and and then like just the Dside scroll fighter Type Games don't do anything for me. So I likethere may have been like some cool Easter egg shit in this where I wouldhave been like, oh, that means something, but to me it meantDick. It's been forever since I fucking played any of those games. Myfavorites, Johnny cadge. I knew he wasn't in the movie, but atthe same time it's like awesome. Never I also don't feel like you couldever introduce that character into like, like guess a movie start that fights.Yeah, yeah, like it's just like I don't know why I like tomiss my favorite care in the game, but my it just doesn't make sense. Yeah, it's and and in the context of the cause he's going tobe in the next one. They beat tease him in this one. UhHuh, that he exists anyway. So in the context of the movies itmakes sense because basically just people are born with this birthmark. That is themost detailed birth mark I've ever seen in my life because it's the mortal Kombatlogo. It's a that's a that's a high deaf birthmark there, and soit's just kind of like randomly goes to people. So my guesses he wasjust born with this birthmark and that's how he's gonna get pulled in. Gotcha. That makes one. That's a whole...

...reason why they say sonic originally can'tbe in the tournament because she doesn't have the birth mark, and then shekills somebody who does and Shit transfers to her and Oh, cool, nightto hang out with us. Now you're in the club. So I haven'tseen it going to if you do, great, if you don't, youprobably you're not missing out on I don't think you miss I was. Imean I don't expect good acting. I elation still. I hate like soI might expect anything great. It's just like one of the day. It'sone will combat. I know it's can be blood. Yeah, it's adumb concept. So like it. I give people all the time keep sayinglike, what do you do? Why do you care so much to dumbfight movie? I'm like, because it's obvious they were trying to make agood movie. That kind of fake. I wonder everything. It's because thetime you get straights, I bet they put on ably. Yeah, Warnerriffs, that's that's trademark. Warner brothers is you need to keep it.Sure else what happened to Justice League? That's true. I told him tokeep it under two hours. I mean, that could be plus. It's plus. It's not like it's a property that movie want. It's a videogame movie, which are never successful. When I was last video game,maybe that was good. I mean, technically detective be Kachi was pretty funny, but ever watched that it's pretty fucking funny, but ry, I think, like to the last Tumb Raider with Alicia VI candor was okay because itwas based on those newer video games, and warcraft was okay. Assassin's creedwas a pile of Shit. It's yeah, and there has a don't even getme started on blood rain. It's I know, they made him move. That's so bad. It's like it it's like in the conversation with catwoman. Is like one of the worst movies like ever fucking made. seriously.Yeah, well, because it was made by that Uva bowl guy who's likemakes all those like pulpy comic book. Yeah, who would like fights hiscritics and boxing matches. Okay, so that one it is so, butlike, try the other fucking Super Mario Brothers from fucking one thousand nine hundredand ninety two or what he I died on the hand side of it sucks. Oh, he's soap and it's so bad. Who Got Now? Becausethere was this supposed to the last of us. That's supposed to be amovie. Our TV show, I can't even working on that for a while. They're working on an uncharted movie supposed to have Tom Holland. Tom Holland. Yeah, but I feel like most untried. I'd never played in Charyor last of us, but from what I've watched a bunch of videos aboutthe games. Yeah, and like I feel like most games don't have agood backstory, but those two games have a great backstory. I don't knowhow you fuck up assassin cree. Assassin creed has a great backstory my opinion, but I think it's just so crazy of a back story the way theydid. You ever see assassin screen the movie? Yeah, I play theGames. The Games are like insane. The Games are in the way.The reason, the way they fucked up the movie was a was pg thirteen, MMM, and that kind of movies got to be our yeah, andthe problem was whenever he would get whenever he'd be doing like cool assassin shit, they kept cutting back to him in the animus. Really because like it, because the Animus was different in the movie in the in the game it'she like lays in a bed like in the main yes, and in themovie he's like hooked up to this like gyroscope thing that he can kind ofkind of like in ready player one you can kind of move freely, justis seeing. And so every time he would like get into an assassin fightor be doing to school assassin shit, it would just cut back to himin the animus. It's like he's fucking shadow boxing and I'm like, Idon't find sell watch. They spend way more time in like the present daythan they do like in the past, and I'm like it could have justmade the movie about I don't need the future shit. Just make the movieabout altierer or you know whoever. I don't need the Animus Shit. Icare about the assassin stuff. I don't have a fuck about the present daystuff. That's what that's what they fucked up then. Yeah, Huh,it's just it's video game movies, man, and so I think that's what happwith moral Kombat is because it's just a they tried twice already and theydidn't do well back in the S. it's been so fucking long. Iknow the Games are still coming out, but they're not as like crazy popularthey're now. IDs. That's not I...

...had, oh my God, innew mortal Kombat as Cox, I'm running all time. At three came outabout that game. Immi they probably why I'm fucked up. Every every arcadehad every arcade, had mk three, every and there was always a lineto play it, even for me, you, because that was when wewere that was the one where, like they changed sub zero's costume and theyintroduce Cyrax and sector and small sell and babytality's fatalities, friendship. Yeah,it's great. I again. It was all fantastic. And then I thatwas the first game you kind of bought, like you're like, I need toknow all the finishing moves and all that stuff. So you like buycause you have to buy that stuff. There was notice they really didn't havethe Internet then. I don't think there was. The online gaming wasn't athing. There was no DLC, there wasn't expansions. You had to learn. I remember one time I had so pissed off at my brother because hewouldn't like I got so livid. He was Scorpack came, who I wasplaying with me. He would just like get over here, get over here, get over here, and like every time I was like I can't heda, that's it's like twenty matches in a row. Oh yeah, Scorpionwas always any times when we played Scorpion. It's like, okay, so you'regonna be a Dick. Okay, if you played a Scorpion, youwere a Dick because you just span same thing with sub zero, especially inthree, because he could. I love how he said I wasn't a mortalKombat Fan and now I'm learning out about the one fucking game I did playing. So see, you can create like the the ice statues of yourself andif somebody got too close, they got frozen. And you had all thesedelayed I could leave like an ice mine and somebody stepped on it, itfucking freeze. I was not the crazy shit. But you also had likeone of my favorite fatalities was was smoke. His chest would open. It wouldjust dump bombs everywhere, blow up the fucking earth. About that.God, there's so many. There's so many fucking characters. So characters.Yeah, I that game had like, I think I gave him like twentyfive characters or something like. Jesus Christ, that was but yeah, that wasback of the day where, like my brother had a had some ofthose scroller fighter games for like the Gundam wing and all that, and itwas like if you wanted to unlock this Mex suit, you had to beatthe game like on hard with this other one, like you had to earnShit. Not. So what a fucking credit card? Yeah, I jumpedon. I jumped on GTA online today for the first time in like twoyears. How did that feel? God, all these people who have like shelledout to see the post I made the other day about guys all.Yeah, fucking funny. I was proud of that one. But yeah,they fucking they get they they pay twenty bucks and get millions of dollars andin game and armor up there, fucking cars and shit. I'm like,what the fuck. Ever, man, it does say a lot to GTAonline now, like people still in that game came out. How long ago? Gt Five, if you ta five came out, Oh my God,with the PS three? Yeah, and people still play this shit out ofthey're pouring it for the psfive in the end and whatever they new with thethe xbox series X. I've never played it online. I've never played GTAfive. GTA five is incredible, like the best GTA and and I havefor the longest time said it was a vice city, but GTA five isso good. But it's just like one of those things that GCA online,like people still play that because that's how good. But online community it is. Well, and not only that, like if you go, if youwant to go buy the game right now, it's still full price. It's stilllike sixty bucks, because usually they'll scale back game prices based on salesand the game still sells. I remember like two three years ago, abunch of douchebags went on to steam and we're we're trolling the reviews, givingit all like negative, like one star reviews, trying to drive the pricedown, and then like steam caught on and like deleted all the dad's fuckingfunny. But because they because I want to play the game, they wantto play sixty bucks for it. But I think it's worth the sixty buckson and Shit, you could have saved ten dollars a year. Yeah,it's that game. Yeah, I don't...

...think it's in any other game likethat. That's like been poured it over three gent three console generations now,and it's still selling. That just that hot. I mean it's crazy.I just never the thing is, like I thought about getting at the playit, but it's like I'm I would be so far behind me, pointless. That's just my friends, like it's my friends and I going there toplay the like do the races and the missions and Shit, because you can, like with Gtfive, you can team up and do heists, yeah,which is really fucking fun. And but you get those guys who show upand they're like they're like level two thousand and I'm like, dude, gooutside. Yeah, Holy Shit, go outside. I'm not going to fuckinglie. I guess how big of a Nerd I was or Gamer I wasat one point. So in Halo came out, Halo to came out forthe xbox. It was the first halo ever to have like xbox on xbox. I number yeah, I took the week off work and I got thelevel. I got to number three in the entire world, but I hadto go back to work. But it was just like, I don't know, I don't understand how professional gamers do it. I might get it,but, like I'm saying, I'm like I was I played this shit outof that game and did the same thing. I'm mad in one ear like Iwas like top fifty. I was like Shit, yeah, but Iwas like your door is here. Door finally show up, Jesus Christy,get it to okay, I ordered door like thirty minutes before we were suposedto start, before Mike even got here, and leave it at the door.I put in the instructions. Take it around back and drop it offin the box. And anyway she rings my doorbell again. I'm going tobe so pissed, but, Mike, it's your eight o'clock and I'm like, it stills even fucking like confirmed my order yet now it's here. Anyway, I'll get it a sick. I don't think you left yet. Nowhe's definitely a car still hit awaiting. H was live on the I'm gonnago see what the fuck is going on. Who All's they to? fucking dooris crazy sometimes I really figures to like I'm getting all these notificate becauseI drive for doors on the side. Yeah, I didn't know you didthat. Yester doing a few weeks ago. Well, the last week's I've goneout, I've had no fucking orders. I've sat there in my car afterlike thirty five minutes. It would just log me out of the APPlike it's not busy enough. We're gonna JUST gonna log you out. HMM, did make you some money at it? Well, bit, I go forlike for like three hours, looking like seventy bucks about. Yeah,but the last thing was I got out. I got nothing.

InSome Day, Huh, that'll be a thing, something, there will bea there will be a fucking door dash for weed. Door is so fuckingexpensive when you order it, though. Yeah, it's they make so muchmoney off that shit. Well, what I've found is, like, ifyou're ordering from a place it's already kind of expensive, you don't notice it, HMM, but if you're ordering from like Taco Bell, it seems it'sdoubling your fucking order. It's like here, my original order from Taco Bell isfive dollars. Now it's thirty five. Yeah, it's ridiculous, but likeit's like it's in it with a INSTATCR because I get my groceries aluver, three INSTA cart. Well, if I'm ordering a hundred bucks worth ofgroceries, I'm not going to notice the extra fifteen bucks is adding on there. If I'm ordering an eight dollar Yeah Burger, and then I'm at afucking notice. Yeah, so it's it is ridiculous, especially considering how littleof that actually goes to the drivers. And I can say that for personalexperience. Yeah, tip your door dress drivers, your door drivers. Peoplesay I got beat ups. The other day I got ten wings into twothings, a ranch, because I was...

The onewere the one in kettering were a couple a couple of years back where hepulled over the people in the mini van. I don't remember that one. Itwas one where he was peo pulled over.

She was going to stab the other girl. Andlike I'm sitting there thinking in my head, I'm like mckilla Bryant, like Kiaby. I am sorry, I was because of looking at Michaela Bryant. I was getting my cheerleader videos and I was that's not right. IApologize. When you watch the video, like I'm like, I don't theonly thing I could think of when I watch it is maybe he should havehad his daser out, but everything was so escalated and I think he knewthere's already knife on scene and there was a fight. I don't know whatelse he would have done. But, if you like, watch and watchingher right now. The video like she's about. So he walks up,there's a fight, there's a bunch of people want to driveway. They're allfighting. Of the sound on, I can't hear doing. Oh, thereis most there. It is. Okay, let's watch. It's pretty chaotic forAnys, I think is doing the best he possible. Can I think? Jesus, yeah, she's gonna yeah, like, did you? But didyou see where she's about to stabber? Yeah, you see, she could. She knocks the girl down. I'm gonna rewind it. It's fuckinglike I don't know what else he could have done. So here's where hecomes up. They get tackle, teshoot, the girl get tackle to the groundand then the other girl comes up on her. He knocks a looklike that. She's got the knife right, I think here. No, she'she shot her already right there. Okay, isn't shot her yet.Harry shoots her, but like that knife was she was about to stabber.Yeah, and I don't my thing. Was My thing in the whole thingis if he, if he doesn't shoot her, the other got, theother kid dies. Yeah, two lines are ruined. Yeah, she's deadand the other ones going to jail. Yeah, it's a really fucked upsituation. I have here too. The two things these shootings keep bringing upinto my head. One, why are we not just using rubber plastic bullets? Totally agree with you to or just or just have the Taser. Yeah, so that's the only thing. I think they fucked he didn't have hisTaser. But I don't, I don't. I don't know training that well,like I've never been there. It doesn't think their time, but it'slike Columbus. I don't think they're taught to have the Taser. A handfirst one. There's actually like actual weapon, weapon in there's a I guess.Yeah, I guess. That's my k. you're responding to it.It's just like they were responding to a domestic disturbance. HMM. Why gogun first if it's the domestic this, if you're responding two shots fired,go nuts. I mean at that point you already know it's as dangerous asit can get. But if you're responding to a domestic argument. But mything is. I agree with you on that. I don't think he hadany other choice right at that moment, in that exact moment, I'm inclinedto agree because I feel like I don't i Taser when the stopped. That'sthe problem with that. A Taser like it would a hit her, butit wouldn't drop her immediately, not as fast as a gun would. Itmight have given the other person enough time to get clear. that. That'sliterally about it. Yeah, I agree with you on the rebel of thing, though. I totally agree with you. I don't know about that, butlike and also a thing like that. That that's why there wasn't that manyprotest either, because I think what happened was they heard about it andthen the video came out. First thing... the first thing you hear iscops, she's black top shoots teenage, black, black teenager, hum,you know, and then you hear that there was a fight, and thenthe thing with the knife. You know that granted, and that's I guessit's because, like, I'm not, despite the number of hours I've investedin grant that daughto. I typically not a violent person. So whenever Ihear about one of these of a Melie, just kind of like what I couldwhat could have been done to avoid this? Did? What? Why? Why did it, especially because I know from the time where I wasstudying law, it's like the police are not executioners, like like their jobis like whenever somebody makes the argument of Oh, this person was committing acrime, was like right, but it's not up to the police to justkilled them because they committed a crime. Here's saying that too. My armon, that my not myryan blot. I've thought it to the girl Iwas about to get stabbed. I bet she was happy that the cop shother, probably because she would have been dead. Yeah, and that's thefucked up thing. That is one situation. I'm like, I don't I getwhy he shot her. I don't. I think it's really fucked up,but I'm like I'll after watching the video, like I've watched a videoton of times, I'm like, I don't other than the rebel, Inever thought it was rob with thing other than going in with like a Taseralready. I don't think the Taser really stops anything. The only thing Icould think of, and they can't do this right, taking the gun outand shooting it up in the air. Yeah, I know you that that'sthat is so against the a lot of people think. I bring that argumentbefore. I'm like, they can't do that, can't. That's really illegal. Like everybody would have stopped. I guarantee every like what the fuck,but they can't do that. So I'm like, I'm saying I'm not defending. I mean it sounds like end of defending the COP, because I Idon't understand any other you don't. You don't see any other way that couldhave happened. I don't. I don't write. I literally like and mything was I was thinking about I thought about forever and I was like it'ssplit second decision. But like she had a knife, for example, andthe female officers that thought she had the Taser. The guy didn't have anything. Yeah, he was just, he was just, and the shooting him. They're being tackled with the ground and they're shooting up in Cleveland. Theguy that threw the gun are the guys to put your hands up. Youend up throwing a gun behind the thing. He put his Hay. I don'tknow if you saw this, Fay, I'm we talk. It was thatthe kid coming out from behind the fence. Yeah, and then itwas the kid because it was like thirteen and the kind of he was thirteen. But he put his hands up in the kit. The COP. Yeah, I remember the way. Hands retally, some down an alley, some shitran's blatantly up. Yeah, COP, cop, that's play. I meanto me that's just murder. Whatever. Doubted this neat. Yeah, butthis one I was like that's that's the South Park. They're coming rightfor us, like literally on that video you see the kids hands up.Yeah, and they shot him and I might just freeze. Hands up andan he puts his hands up and he shoots him. He literally shoots him, and you're like what the Fuy? Did everything you told him to doand you still shot him. The fill up the filled Castellano cast some he'slike I have my concealed carry the facebook. I whant. I have my canstill carry, like I came here. If he said he had a gunon, I'm not. I can't remember that. The soldier, Idon't know if he was soldier, but he is like and he reached,I think he reached the buckles belt or reaches out in the COP fucking shothim, like that's straight up. That one. I don't Reok it.That one, I don't remember. I'm like that's still the souldierum. Toget to the one where the two cops pulled the guy over. Then,yeah, I haven't seen that. When I heard about that one. Everseen that one now? If they's peppers, fade him, don't they? Ifpeppers raided that? That video fucked me up because he liked because theypull it because a, he pulls over into a gas station and he,when they interviewed me, said I pulled over to a gas station because itknew it would be well lit. And I'm like that is a fucked up. That's fucked up that somebody has to have that line of thinking. Exactlythe soldier was in. He was in his CAMO and they're pulling them over. They're pulling him over saying could be they're pulling him over for because hedidn't have a it's saying his license plate wasn't displayed yet a tempt tag inhis back window would, you can see in the video, to some stupidto pull somebody over for. And and...

...but they're saying shit like you're aboutto ride the lightning, motherfucker, because like they got one guy had histaser pulled. The soldier, I cannot remember his name. I Apologize.Like he's telling the cops. He's like, can you please explain what's going on? I'm really scared right now, and the cops like yeah, youshould be. Oh really. Yeah, and they pepper speak, has hishands out the window and they pepper spraym in the face. Den S coopsget fired. Oh, I know the one who'd said you're about to ridethe lightning, the older one. He did. I don't know about thebecause was an older cop on thentis. Are they get to these are thethrone in jail? First Sault? Oh, yeah, it was. It was. That was one of those. It was like he was so fuckedup and just again, like the shit they were saying to this guy tolike as like an intimidation tactic, was so fucked up. Like I rememberwatching the video just like clutching my pearls, like Jesus, my hope. Mywhole thing on the Bryant thing is like I don't think that all thatShit, all those people, I might yeah, that's platantly murdered. That'splaying a salt. Yeah, that's what that is. The machayla brother Nikiarant thing. I'm like, I don't, I don't see. It's too it'stoo muddy, it is too money in the sense that if you askthat girl that was about to get stabbed, if she was like thank you AusFirst, I guarantee you. Yeah, because that knife, you saw,that knife was going, it was going right in her stomach. Shewas she was trying to stab her. Yeah, I mean that was shewas super be it was an aggressive mean she threw that chick on the ground. She was trying to fuck her up. So I I'm sitting there, I'mlike, I watched it like a bunch. I don't know how manytimes I watched it. I'm just like, I don't I don't see any otherother than there. Every bullet thing like else I never even thought about, which makes sense, or like shooting the gun off, which I knowthey can do. I don't, I don't know. It's and I thoughtin my head, I was like he kills her, like that's one liferuined. Yeah, he lets the girls stab her or tries to taize herand the girl gets stabbed. That's two lives ruined, not to mention thefamilies, and one goes to prison the other ones dead. It's like,what the fuck do you even like? It's a very fucked up situation.Yeah, I mean, maybe he thought about that. I don't know.I don't think so. But it all happens in the span of like sevenseconds. Yeah, so you like you're sitting there like I don't even knowwhat to I like, I could, I get, I could and Icouldn't pick the shit out of this thing. I could be like when we shouldonly shot one, because he shoots like four times, three, fourtimes. Yeah, no, when I agree with I because I won't,because I will, I will hmm, like he's saying that the chick thatsaid I thought it was my taser. She at least only fired once.Hm. So, because I think we talked about this when Kyle was here, like she kind of laid the ground work to get off, to getoff. So she should lose her job, but I don't think she'll go toprison because once you say once, you say an interview. I thoughtmy gun was my taser. No, police department's going to fucking hire youthat. Oh, absolutely not. But she only fired once. Just wasthe only one in need. So I said, and it getting mean not. It only takes one bullet to kill somebody, but I don't know,it's such a I completely, I completely see and understand your argument. Andand again, I'm super pro BLM. So I am too. That's aso it so it feels weird kind of being like that's the things like I'veseen, like I'm live, I'm mayor watching this video one time this copthat I came here with. The Guy had but the guy and I'm gettingaway right, and the COP, rather than fucking the guy was running anythe cop just fucking shot him twice. Like I didn't even have anything onhim, no weapons, but the guy got away and a fist fight,like not fist fight, the guy tap, a guy tackled and the cop tackledhim and like he and I'm getting...

...up and running away in the copshot him twice. She's and he tried to plant the gun as if wait, wait, I think I remember that in the backyard. And then thethey watch on the cameras, they walk over and toss a gun down next. Yeah, I I was those like right when I was those like twothousand, two thousand and sixteen. I remember that. I'm thinking, likeat the station. Yeah, so, Jesus Christ, yeah, that's that. I mean that. It's so that. I mean, I get that becausethat that point it wasn't just a cop to hut, because there was, because it was a there was other officers there that he's talking with andthe other one goes over and drops the gun. I'm like, that's likemajor corruption right there. Yeah, and I can't like, I'm like that'smean that. When I watch that. Yeah, and I watched the theBrian Ay, I'm like, I don't even know. You're right, Iget it, like I get it, but I think people are so quickto jump and judge on Shit because they hear, see a headline or whatever. And I get that and I think that's partially where there wasn't a lotof protests. Yeah, on that either, because because there's there wasn't. Therewas an end. Because especially because when it happened, it was rightjuge after George laws, right after George Floyd, the the Therek shoven conviction, or the same week whatever. Now I said day after, the dayafter. Yeah, fuck, but there was that quick initial I remember theinitial outrage and then I kind of stopped. I started to hear less and lessabout it as time went on, as I feel like more people watchthe video and more people are like, I don't. Yeah, yeah,it's a fucked up they to watch. Oh, it's yeah, it's I'mgonna will, if we have a just we'll put up a disclaimer prior tonow. I mean because the the audio alone is is a lot. It'sa that's a heavy at some heavy shit. Yeah, fuck, and I Ipeople. Are you online about it? I'm like, and I don't jumpin there because I don't think it's worth the arguing, but I cansee their eye. I get both sides of everything and I'm just like sittingthere like I don't, because then you can got because also I think workis like, because she was only sixteen and that's so shitty, so fuckedup and push. You know that that cops career. Ay, that copsgot to live with that now h the whole the whole situation. It's justcompletely fucked up. I just don't. I guess I like the more Ifive. I don't know what else other than the upper bullet thing. Idon't think it tasor would have done anything, because a Taylor doesn't automatically like itprops out, but like you have to be a certain distance as wellto get a Taser and he key wasn't that disc I don't think he wasthat close and I don't know how long he was on the scene. Ican't remember how long he was on the scene. I'M gonna I don't know. I don't read more about this as I go. I guessid I hadthis this this one. I just I haven't. And this is so fuckedup to say, but because there's so manny of them happened. It's justlike the female with the Taser thing. That's totally fucked. That person isthere as go jail forever. The kid in the hid in the alley thatgot shot in the coining to cock that out. I was like, JesusChrist, that COP. I was like and people trying to argue like,oh, he had every right. I like, you don't know, Idon't even see. The cops don't have a yeah, judge yourry next Kationer. No, this isn't judge dread. Yeah, they don't have the right. They were everyone says, well, once you once they were committing acrime. That doesn't mean they deserve to die. Yeah, that's that's literallywhat we have the legal system for this. Why only certain crimes or can besentence with the death penalty. Committing a crime is not a death sentence. That's the whole point of the police is to find out what went at, what went down, what happened. That's the whole point of the legalsystem. If we're going to say, well, they were committing crimes,it's okay, the cop shot and killed them. Fuck the legal system.That's fairly fucked up. Then the next time you're speeding, congratulations, youcommitted a civil offense, it's okay if...

...the cops shoots you. Like.What fucking slippery slope are we about to send ourselves down here it? Igets so tired of that argument. I tell you should on it and shouldplace too big like like joyfully die because a counterfeit twenty dollar both, Iguess, just a counterfeit twin dollar. Holy Shit. At the end ofthe day, when you think about how many millions of dollars and taxpayer dollarswere spent dealing with the outcome of all this, over twenty bucks, doesthe punishment fit the crime? Sorry, yeah, cal rettenhouse, who fuckingshot to people, and the cops are like you can go ahead, andthen's who is the fucker from Dayton who rate that girl out in California?I can't think of his name. Then they send his ass back to Daytonbecause he spent like, he spent like three months, not even three months, in jail. Yeah, I can't think his name. Dylan. No, Dylan roof was the kid that shot up that church in South Carolina.Yeah, that one I remember because that was the week before I moved uphere and I was living down there. Yeah, that piece of Shit.That but yeah, he's back here in Dayton. Out here, I rememberTurner something, Turner. Yeah, but I remember the night that he becauseI was rock Turner, Rock Turner, Fos Brock Turner. Yeah, Iremember the night that he was flying back to Dayton, like we were doingbreaking news coverage and they he was having to get like a police escort backto his house because there were protesters by his house and Shit, and itwas like wow, this kids getting a police escort and he's the one thatraped somebody. What the fuck? Yeah, a kid should still be in jail. Oh, absolutely, that judge chose you. Money buys people out, because the judge Lye said, I don't want to ruin his life.He fucking ranked somebody piece. The show got dark. Yeah, it did. I mean it's that's how fucked up the justice system is. It isit's more inclined to help white people and his black people, or it justthat's I mean that's obvious. Yeah, it's clearly obvious and it's really fuckedup. So I whenever you see one of those things like Oh, they'retalking about, you know, you know, legalizing pot, which I'm a fanof, but it's like, man, imagine being you know's there's black guysin jail for fifty years for selling pot. Who It's like, cool, that was going to be legalized. Well, we're gonna let them thefuck out of prison. Then you need to yeah, so fucking weed.It's just weed. You know, it was created because of weed. StarWars, I guarantee, I promise you. George Lucas was high. Oh,hi, or on tramp's yeah, Oh, also hi, but eitherway high, I promise you he was.
