the stuff that shouldn't be there and what we don't realize is what an affected have you forget that seventy nine percent of women in prison are mothers or mothers with children there is little to no prenatal care in prisons and if they do have it it's not good in addition pregnant women in most states are shackled during the labor process if they are in prison and their children are with the babies or return them twenty four to forty eight hours after they're born and that's it they don't have contact with them and because of the cost often of travelling to and having visits it's hard for women to then see their children on top of it most prisons have rules about no touching so you can't touch your child even though you know you're doing this this has a long term effect on families eighty six per cent of women in jail report having experienced sexual violence in their lifetime these are rape survivors molestation survivors nearly half of all single black and hispanic women possess zero or negative net wealth and those make up the majority of women in prison are slack and i think that the women are dollars too was a it's
1:01 pm
a low res those are it's classes and the entire system is absolutely racist and classist when you tell me that when you are the largest number of women are for misdemeanor crimes and they're mostly black latino or hispanic and they're sitting there in this situation and getting put in jail for ridiculous reason i don't think it is race that people got to pay attention to that number the women as the women are being put in jail of a higher rate than men right now that's a number that needs to change and i think that's a number that needs to be investigated we're going to follow up even more in the future a little bit as we go to break court watchers don't forget to let us know what you think of the topics we've covered of facebook and twitter to see our poll shows that are to dot com coming up we welcome the one and only had souls in the darkness to discuss what did didn't make it into the state of the union and will congress once again miss their their spending bill deadline stay tuned for watching the whole.

1:05 pm
present a drum state of the union may have been heavy on the picture perfect moments and memorable sound bites been in all the fun to rest up laws and. so many things did happen to go on set and i notice trump was quick to throw out impressive manufacturing and jobs numbers to multiple standing ovations and his surrogates took to the airwaves almost instantly to chastise the congressional black caucus for not applauded applauding his triumphant announcement of a decline in african-american unemployment but what is the economic reality underlying all this self-congratulatory palme are we really had for a new economic golden age where coal will once again reign supreme and crumbling factories of the rust belt will help us annihilate the trade deficit much like we will annihilate the illegal immigration problem president obama's promise to close guantanamo corporate tax rates for a sobering look at what we can and cannot count on in. that gamut of threats and
1:06 pm
pronouncements we are joined today by none other than at her how are you add. that i real nice to see you always a pleasure and always i want to start there we all watched the interview covered a brilliantly here on our t.v. the state of the union but what in your opinion was left out you know the dirty little secret in all of this wonderful economy and it is really good you have to admit the meet in the stock market you've got people's retirements you've got four a one k.'s you've got the education fund for young kids i mean families are building in the stock market if they're in it now here's the bad news with the tax cut health care costs are going up and the president the only thing he talked about in the state of the union was the mandate what's the rest of the story because interim insurance rates are going to go up dramatically in two thousand and eighteen and now the republicans own it they've done one move on health care and it hasn't been a good one so are they going to let this sit by the roadside as road kill or are
1:07 pm
they going to pick up the mantle and do something about it and so this advantage of the tax cut that these middle class families are going to get that they're talking about that's going to get wiped out by the increases in health care coverage if they decide to buy it and buy get into the market on it so that's what he didn't talk about the next phase of health care and what they're going to do for all these people that he said he was going to let die in the streets right on the campaign trail and there were some other things left out but i thought that that was the most glaring but i would agree because of it i think that's one of the you know health care we all can say it was of course and it was going away oh yeah you know they didn't get so far but what the one thing that i notice is this idea of manufacturing jobs and bringing them back and my home state of wisconsin is one of those that's been trying to get more manufacturing of some kind back into the state so the big part a core part of trump's economic message was that he's bringing all of these jobs back and revitalizing and but more and more what we're seeing are headlines pointing out that this manufacturing companies are actually. lee looking at had to
1:08 pm
automating their factory floors and that has to leave myself wondering for the people of wisconsin and for other states to see these are the are two out of work americans really getting as sweet of a deal as trump is sounding them go center stage today the president talked about vocational training he talked about bricklayers you know which i found very interesting he wants to build a lot of stuff ok i got it and those are good paying jobs because those trades are hard to find right now go try to hire a plumber for your home i mean there are these are now very valuable jobs at much more than what they used to be because people have gotten away from the trade so. the as far as a manufacturing is concerned steel aluminum rubber glass electronics yeah there's going to be a certain level of automation that's going to seep into that but people still have to run them will still have to be highly trained i was just amazed at some of the
1:09 pm
things that i've heard in the steel industry about how the the how they have to make sure that they mix the steel properly per ton and what they're producing in the quality of it which is far better than what the chinese are putting out right now so america does have a great story to tell and those jobs are still going to be there not as plentiful but they're still going to be there and most of the reduction in the industries that i've talked about has been because china and south korea they have done state sponsored type of formula of an economy to compete against the free market in the united states in the w t o formula for going after those trade agreements has been to slow yeah and that was one of the things is that what china did not reason they got like the i phone was that they had spent a year is educating people in those trades or getting people to that point and the concern i think a lot of people have is will these days when. we have companies like foxconn that
1:10 pm
are coming in are they going to get the best deal our states giving away too much in tax incentives just to get them here but then ultimately won't they have to set a lack of skills want they end up having to hire a lot of out of state people to cover those jobs are out of country you know you never go wrong by investing in education and i think that education in this country is going to see a tremendous revolution over the next twenty years there's going to be more home schooling that's going to be going on there's going to be more internet technology there's not going to be the big schools centers we can't said kids in school anymore because they get shot every day i mean this is there is a game i don't want to send their kids is going to you know i really think there is going to be a real revolution in the way we teach our kids in this country but investing in education is something i don't think the country can ever get away from because there is going to be tremendous competition in one of the slain trades yesterday and one of the factors that the president is pushing now pretty hard is only give
1:11 pm
us your best. merit immigration ok. meritorious status to get into the country and i think that's that's going to be a big debate but yeah huge debate another interesting thing speaking of debates is next week february eighth is the next deadline for the for the petards they've got to get that spending bill passed by then and you know meanwhile the deadline to pass dhaka is also approaching that's what marsh. do you think trump and congress are going to actually reach some sort of grand bargain by the by next week with roberts that probably not probably not out of they're not going to get a deal done in seventeen days and that window is cut sharp now we're not very far from february eighth and then of course the big deadline on it is march fifth or they've got to do something by then but i think that it didn't wear very well with the american people certainly all of the republicans are going to vote for a continuing resolution will there be ten democrats probably will because they were . politically injured it's going to be hard for them to come back with
1:12 pm
a positive narrative to the american people i think we've all got the message on docket the president certainly has it and he's thrown out a plan four pillars take it or leave it this is where we are it's a negotiating point i think it's a it's a it would be good measure on the part of the democrats to go ahead and give the president a good solid chunk of the wall if you're going to get daca i mean that is why we are making these beautiful color are never going to forget the fact that the democrats never gave up the fight why would you give that to the republicans and i think that schumer and palosi are way off on their narrative with the american people right now they are totally following everything from does they are way too focused on this memo talk instead of what muller just do what he does and stop trying to poison the well every time i talk about medicare medicaid social security you ask the question what they didn't talk about in the state of the union no talk of medicare medicaid social security this is huge to millions of americans they
1:13 pm
want to know if the next move by the republicans is going to be depravity to privatized all of those things that's a great thing to bring up because of the fact that you're talking about the entire generation of baby boomers is now facing that right now and. even future generations we're not saving in america nobody can those who can't can't and those who should be saving for the future aren't you know it's one of those things that kind of drops and both ways do you think that the democrats will ever started get off this it is really instruction asked at this point they're not you know we're doing half of it to make ways to in positive things on one side and the other side was obstructing it makes sense but it seems they've just given up what your narrative is to the country that's what i would ask the democrats what's your narrative to the country and i think chuck schumer in new york and palosi in california ok the democrats are going to win those two states what do you do with the other forty eight. in the middle of the. entry you know when the democrats were
1:14 pm
strong with dick gephardt was from missouri when tom daschle was from south dakota yeah ok when they had leadership from the middle of the country now the republicans who they have on their leadership team the food from south dakota right ok they connect with the middle of the country that's the way the map is it's going to be hard to break into that you better start talking to these folks about jobs you better have the democrats better start talking to them about their future instead of keep pounding on these red herrings about well the best thing we can do is hope for the russian investigation so we can impeach trump that's not a plan for america no it's not a frequent in the democratic party you know it's you know very you know it's also interesting that the mention of at the top of the show but you know mr berndt gaza himself trey gowdy announced that he's walking away from the game which which was kind of shocking but it's also i've seen that happening now a lot more from people who are expecting like god you know all that thirty five members are slated to leave politics or potentially run for
1:15 pm
a different office is that a reflection of a rougher political climate these days in your opinion or do these people know something we don't well know they just you know it's like you know who wants to stay in a lousy job when you can go do something else you know all of these congressional members come in and they get visibility they get a pretty good paycheck they can set themselves up for a better job later on now you mention trey gowdy gallies a very talented guy in fact in fact i think he's probably one of the best legal minds in congress and the republicans refer to him a lot from the house and the senate and i think he's an honest broker i do and he's got judiciary experience in the past working with the justice area i think he's going to go back to that he can had an awful lot to it i think he's one of the very few in congress that hasn't been given partisan comments about all of these investigations he's very focused on the facts i think it's unfortunate that he's leaving and i know he went after benghazi. but maybe you didn't. because look at
1:16 pm
all these e-mails look at look at what the f.b.i. was doing with the e-mail investigation and all of the discrepancies that are there so the point made today by the speaker was the congress does take time to get to the root of the peg of the whole deal but eventually they're going to get there and normally these investigations take well beyond a year year and a half sometimes two years. so what's going to know we're a long way from november but it is going to be the economy. the markets and then it comes back the republicans are going to say tax cuts that really work for you but the democrats are going to have to get on health care and protecting the big three always a pleasure to be with you. it has widely believed that human beings migrated from the african continent between about one hundred thirty thousand and one hundred fifteen thousand years ago but
1:17 pm
a new discovery of ancient three hundred eighty five thousand year old stone tools in india has made anthropologists rethink the entire timeline of the development of technology and the sharma center for heritage education in india has spent the last two decades collecting and analyzing seventy two hundred various stone tools found along the creek in southern india in southern indian state of tom would not do what they discovered was that these sophisticated tools carpet court indicated that modern humans were in india thousands of years before we thought they were and while it doesn't change the theory behind the out of africa hypothesis it does mean that our human ancestors in india were far more advanced a lot earlier than we thought the fact of fossils and bones are rarely found in india near the size makes proving the theory difficult but it does mean that india has a story just under the surface about her history and the history of humankind just . waiting to be discovered are i that is our show for today remember everyone in
1:18 pm
this world would love told her loved about her tell you all i love you i of i robot and that after watching those hawks another great thing about. eighteen years ago i traveled across the united states exploring america's deadly love affair with a gun if a bad guy tried to get to one of my family members he would have better a lot better and i think it's fair and hearty when i buy my babies says my book was published in the year two thousand more than hoffa million americans have been killed by firearms in the u.s. i mean how does the team yes i did yes this is a middle school we go through drills and we put ourselves in real scenarios it was interesting to see who actually got hit by the gun i just saw i did to return to the subject to track down each gun owner who i'd met and photographed those years
1:19 pm

1:20 pm
but. extortion and drug peddling we report on the huge police corruption in the u.s. city of baltimore where an elite unit tasked with taking guns off the streets. also this hour the world. seriously concerned with a decision by sports court to overturn the olympics ban imposed on twenty eight russian athletes.
1:21 pm
i and five margaret shorts and dozens more injured in a mass brawl in the french port city of. international live from moscow on a four pm now in the russian capital on hawkins thanks so much for joining us this hour. now one of america's biggest police corruption scandals is unraveling in the city of baltimore offices from an elite police unit tasked with reducing crime seem to have actually been contributing to it there on trial accused of turning the law on its head. they came at me like a gang or something i remember one of the officers saying i looked like someone who needed to be robbed everybody's life is destroyed because of this my kids are afraid to go in the house. other so-called gun trace task force is made up of
1:22 pm
plainclothes officers and has been trying to tackle the city's increasing murder rate over the unit has been dissolved now officers arrested they've been charged with offenses varying from drug trafficking to planting fake evidence. audi's smear a car reports on what exactly triggered this case and how the police units crimes were exposed. well it all started with an investigation into drug trafficking in new jersey then as the case unraveled federal authorities found out that the baltimore police department was also involved mostly its elite gun traced task force unit months of recordings recovered from a device planted in a police cruiser reveal that officers were involved in drug trafficking robbery falsifying reports and planting fake evidence in one case a high speed car chase resulted in a crash which the officers tried to cover up one of the indicted acts detectives involved actually broke down in tears in court it was a really bad accident none of us stopped to render aid to see if anyone was hurt we
1:23 pm
were foolish although i was doing so much wrong it got to a certain point where too much was too much altogether six officers have already pleaded guilty and two are still being tried but there are indications there's more to the story than just one rogue police unit court records show that the city paid over half a million dollars to settle claims of misconduct and falsifying reports involving the very same officers and dating back as far as twenty fourteen so why did they all forty's choose to sweep it all under the rug kind of you see this those offices of very well known industries for door what are they doing and this isn't. where it came up it's been it's probably been plenty of complaints you can't go an extra help because you're afraid that this particular might just do some so you might pencil it's common when we see them coming we go to opposite direction if we can and if we can we deal with this circumstance this has been corruption for
1:24 pm
a long time you know just because this is one as in a way as though they decide to you know come forward or you know they got caught for what they've done is stuff that particular but at the same time as not going to stop the corruption has to be done to stop the corruption from these criminals are cops and the cops are criminals then there's the unsolved murder of detective shawn souter that took place in. november last year wasn't part of the country's taskforce but worked with some of the officers were now under indictment and the day before he was set to testify in the corruption probe he was shot in the head with his own weapon while on duty and another unfortunate twist which some might find suspicious a patrol car transporting the dying officer to an asp it all got into an accident there's no suspect in the murder so far and no eyewitnesses except one unnamed partner and when the police commissioner tried to redirect the investigation to the f.b.i. the agency refused saying that the case had nothing to do with the corruption probe i'm growing increasingly uncomfortable that my home aside the directives do not
1:25 pm
know all of the facts known to the f.b.i. or the u.s. attorney's office that good reveal to us assist in furthering this murder investigation in the wake of the scandal baltimore police have launched an overhaul including a new commissioner vowing to rein in city violence but investigators still seem to have a very complicated plot to unravel samir khan r.t. reporting from baltimore. and the world that he doping agency says it's concerned with the court of arbitration for sport the solution to up hold the appeals of russian olympic athletes wider understands that this decision will cause dismay and frustration among athletes the agency supports the i.o.c. is intention to analyze these decisions very carefully and consider all options including an appeal to the swiss federal tribe you know on thursday the court of arbitration for sport rule to lift also mentions on reinstate the limpet medals for
1:26 pm
twenty eight russian athletes eleven others will miss the upcoming winter olympics in south korea their lifetime bans though have been overturned and sanctions partially lifted over the decision has disappointed some of the leagues from other countries they were hoping to move into medal positions retrospectivity from the south to twenty four team games. bob anything else this is a very very very dark day for the olympics and this is a very very very dark day for clean sport you there is such a thing if. people are saying they can prove they were dirty in the same breath you can prove that they were innocent or you say they are not guilty or you say they are guilty and they have ruled that there is not enough proof for a doping offense hence they are not guilty and this is very important also because it makes to make law report to become not in bases
1:27 pm
which is enough to convict athletes and everything that was done up to now was based on the mclaren report and if this is now not a basis enough to convict at leats then i do not understand why also all the russian at plates could have been banned colic to flee without having any any proof of the hoping the mood of course was very different for the russian athletes sheer relief came over those who thought their dreams and careers had been dashed. boiling a sentiment i found out about the decision during my training c.i.s. decided to overturn my disqualification my ban i had only positive thoughts in my head about that i've been ready to ski for a long long time keeping up my training but i had a question right away what about the olympics are we able to dispute this and get an invitation requesting it or i was waiting for the results of
1:28 pm
a pill when i came back from practice it's amazing yes then my scouting team started congratulating each other such a relief when not guilty and the whole public will know that a lot of people who will date only those close to us knew it's not tree. twenty eight sports fans of russia are found not guilty and now the i was the states that does not mean that they will participate in the olympics the upcoming winter games that means that practically we have a court decision that will not be enforced and i see a new violation here as there was a violation by the i.o.c. when banning the sportsman so this is actually a little bit odd to me and when we see or we have not seen the reasons for the decision right now the mclaren report didn't find any individual violations of doping rules of individual sports made. over to the u.s.
1:29 pm
side the public clash between the white house and the f.b.i. has seen the u.s. president accuse the bureau of lacking investigative process this comes as donald trump looks set to release a classified memo alleging the f.b.i. abused its surveillance powers kaleb open picks up the story. the pending release of a classified government memo is shaking up washington d.c. if indeed the obama administration used the department of justice and the f.b.i. to spy on trump during the campaign this could be quite a scandal it would discredit the d.o.j. and the f.b.i. as nonpartizan a law enforcers and destroy the democrats now the democratic leadership doesn't want to be destroyed so here's a few of their last ditch efforts to keep their boat afloat. now adam schiff from the democratic side of the house intelligence committee says that he's preparing a counter memo he says the republicans edited the document to fit their political
1:30 pm
agenda he says he's preparing a memo of his own that will expose the misleading character of the document. that the f.b.i. says that they haven't been given sufficient time to review the document and they have grave concerns about the facts that have been removed from the memo as expressed during our initial review we have grave concerns about material emissions a fact that fundamentally impact the memos accuracy. the. democrats say the document was altered before the president saw it they say that these changes were made without their knowledge so the vote to release it is invalid. but i discovered late tonight the chairman news made material changes to the memo he sent to the white house changes not approved by the committee the white house therefore reviewing a document the committee has not approved for release however some.
