DR HAN WHEN I ASK HIM WHO MAKES THE DECISIONS- DR HAN THE SCIENTISTS FTA OR THE WHITE HOUSE HE SAID THE SCIENTISTS AT FDA IN TERMS OF SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY AND ALL OF YOU HAVE SAID THAT YOU WOULD. YOU WOULD- TAKE THE THAT THE TESTS ARE THE VACCINE ONE IS PRODUCED AND RECOMMENDED TO YOUR FAMILIES ALTHOUGH AT BRIDGEWATER SAID WHAT IS WHY YOU SHOULD TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE YOU TAKE ANY KIND OF.

DR FELL CHEAT AS DID ALL OF YOU SAY BUT FELT SHE’S BEEN- INVOLVED WITH THESE THINGS SINCE NINETEEN EIGHTY FOUR THE REAGAN YEARS OR EVEN BEFORE. ARE WE CUTTING CORNERS ON SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY AND HE SAID NO. AND THE RISK WE’RE TAKING IS TO THE TAXPAYERS BECAUSE OF THE NEW WAY WE’RE DOING THINGS WE COULD LOSE A LOT OF MONEY IN THESE VACCINES ARE APPROVED. BUT I THINK THE CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT DECIDED THAT THAT WAS WELL WORTH IT IT WOULD SAVE LIVES BY HAVING A VACCINE READY IN A YEAR. RATHER THAN TWO THREE FOUR YEARS AND FINALLY I ASK WHETHER IT WAS A GOOD IDEA HAVING BEEN A COLLEGE PRESIDENT TO SEND HOME. THE STUDENTS TO GET SICK WITH COVERT OF AN OUTBREAK COMES OUT AS IT IS ON MANY COLLEGE CAMPUSES AND DOCTOR FELT SHE SAID NO THAT’S NOT THE RIGHT WAY TO DO IT THE RIGHT WAY TO DO IT IS TO MANAGE. YOUR CAMPUS IN SUCH A WAY THAT YOU CAN ISOLATE THE SIX STUDENTS SENT HOME THEY JUST IN FACT GRANDMA GRANDPA EVERYBODY ELSE IN THE COMMUNITY SO IT’S BEEN A VERY USEFUL AND EFFECTIVE- HEARING- IT WAS WIDELY CARRIED ON LIVE ON TELEVISION FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS SO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAD A CHANCE.

SENATE HEARING ON THE LATEST OF THE- COVERT NINETEEN FEDERAL RESPONSE AND WE HEARD FROM. THE TOP HEALTH OFFICIALS ARE THERE INCLUDING A DOCTOR ABOUT YOU EVERYONE. MY CASE HERE I AM YOUR HOST. HERE ON NEWS NOW AS WE CONTINUE TO NAVIGATE ALL THE LIVE FEEDS THAT ARE COMING IN AND BOY DO WE HAVE A LOT OF THEM RIGHT NOW ITS FIRST. POINT YOU OUT- WE’RE RIGHT NOW WE HAVE SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS AND SENATOR. CHUCK SCHUMER THERE AT THE SUPREME COURT RIGHT NOW PAYING THEIR RESPECTS TO THE LATE JUSTICE GINSBURG GO OUT AND YOU’RE GOING TO SEE A LOT OF MOMENTS LIKE THIS THROUGHOUT THE DAY EARLIER TODAY WE EVEN SAW BILL CLINTON AND HILLARY CLINTON PAYING THEIR- RESPECTS AS WELL SO WE WILL KEEP AN EYE ON THE SHOT FROM- ALL DAY TODAY AND GET IN GIVE YOU THAT- UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE ALL RIGHT OUTSIDE. OF THE SUPREME COURT RIGHT NOW WE’RE ALSO MONITORING- THE LATEST KOBE NINETEEN NEW JERSEY UPDATES AS WELL BUT WE WANT TO TAKE IT OUT. RIGHT NOW TO CHARLOTTE NORTH CAROLINA UNDERWEAR JOE BIDEN IS A JUST STARTING A CAMPAIGN EVENT THERE THIS IS- BLACK ECONOMIC SUMMIT. AND WE ARE JUST MOMENTS AWAY. FROM THAT AND HERE IT IS. RAISE THE UNION. THE PRESS I WAS KIDNAPPED THE HARDEST THING THE ONLY THING HARDER BEEN PRESENT UNION BE THE MAYOR OF A BEAUTIFUL CITY. FOLKS THANKS TO TAKE THE TIME TO BE HERE TODAY I REALLY APPRECIATE IT AND- WE WOULD HAVE AN ASTRONAUT NEVER HOUSE AND- HOW TELL YOU WHAT THAT’S PRETTY COOL TOO. LOOK FIRST OF ALL- I WANT TO THANK CHRIS AND THE MAYOR FOR BEING HERE AND ALL OF YOU FOR BEING HERE. AND YOU KNOW THESE ARE TOUGH TIMES. OVER TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND. AMERICANS YES THE WAY FOR TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND THE NUMBER IS STILL RISING. AND THE

IMPACT ON COMMUNITIES IS BAD ACROSS THE BOARD VERTICALLY BAD TRAFFIC AMERICAN COMMUNITIES ALMOST FOUR TIMES AS LIKELY TO USHER THREE TIMES AS LIKELY TO CATCH A DISEASE COVERED. AND ONE IS CAUGHT TWICE AS LIKELY TO DIE AS WHITE AMERICANS. IT SET A SOCIAL EMBLEMATIC OF THE INEQUALITY THAT EXISTS IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES EXIST. AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT- REALLY MATTERS TO ME IS- WE COULD DO WE- DID HAVE TO BE THIS BAD. YOU HAVE THIRTY MILLION PEOPLE IN UNEMPLOYMENT. YEP TWENTY MILLION PEOPLE FIGURE AND WHETHER OR NOT THEY CAN PAY THEIR MORTGAGE PAYMENT THIS MONTH AND WHAT THEY’RE GONNA BE ABLE TO DO OR NOT DO AS A CONSEQUENCE OF THAT. YOU GOT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE WORRIED THAT THEY’RE GOING TO BE THROWN OUT IN THE STREET BECAUSE THEY CAN’T PAY THE RENT. ALL OF THEM GIVEN A REPRIEVE FOR THREE MONTHS BUT THEY HAVE TO PAY DOUBLE THE NEXT THREE MONTHS WHEN IT COMES AROUND. IN THE WAY IN FACT THE- THE- DEMOCRATIC HOUSE AND THE SENATE PASSED IT. STEPPED UP AND PASSED A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF MONEY TO HELP PEOPLE. GET THROUGH THE PROCESS INCLUDING KEEPING BUSINESSES OPEN ALIKE WELL GUESS WHAT. THE INSISTED THERE BE ANYTHING CALL INSPECTOR GENERAL. SOMEBODY WATCHING EVERY DOLLAR WENT. AND THE FIRST THING THE PRESIDENT STATED IS FIRED THAT INSPECTOR GENERAL THERE’S NO INSPECTIONS FIRED. FIRED AND SO YOU GOT 40% OF ONLY 40% OF THE MONEY INTENDED FOR SMALL BUSINESSES GO TO SMALL BUSINESSES ONLY 40% OF IT. 60% IS GONNA THE MAR A LAGO CROWD. IN ADDITION TO THAT WE FIND OURSELVES IN A CIRCUMSTANCE WHERE- THE IDEA THAT WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE FOR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE FOR PEOPLE IS VERY MUCH IN DOUBT. ALTHOUGH THE HOUSE JUST PASSED A PACKAGE TODAY MY GENERIC POINT IS. THAT THE UNIVERSITY COLUMBIA POINTED OUT THAT IF IN FACT THE PRESIDENT ACTED EVEN THOUGH WE KNOW NOW HE KNEW EXACTLY HOW BAD THE PANDEMIC WAS BACK IN FEBRUARY. HE’S ON TAPE WITH BOB WOODWARD SAYING HE KNEW HOW BAD IT WAS. AND HE DIDN’T SAY A THING. HE DIDN’T SAY A THING AND IF HAD SPOKEN AS I SAID THIS SAID A COLUMBIA ONE WEEK EARLIER. THIRTY SEVEN THOUSAND MORE PEOPLE BE ALIVE TODAY. AND WE’RE GONNA HAVE ANOTHER INFLUX OF CASES THIS BETWEEN NOW AND JANUARY IT’S EXPECTED THAT WE’RE GOING TO HAVE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN DEPENDING ON WHICH ESTIMATE TAKE. BETWEEN A HUNDRED THIRTY EIGHT HUNDRED SEVENTY EIGHT THOUSAND MORE DEATHS. AND IF PEOPLE JUST DO WHAT WE’RE DOING HERE AND WHEN YOU’RE IN A SOCIAL DISTANCES I AM YOU CAN TAKE A MASK OFF BUT TO WEAR A MASK. THERE MAY AN ESTIMATE THAT WOULD SAVE ABOUT- CLOSE TO A- A EIGHTY NINE NINETY THOUSAND PEOPLE. THE SOURCE OF OPERATOR RESPONSIBLE IT’S ABOUT BEING RESPONSIBLE WE’RE NOT BE VERY RESPONSIBLE WHAT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT TODAY. IS IT- WE HAVE TO BREAK THE CYCLE THE CYCLE EXIST IS THAT. THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY BY AND LARGE. FINDS ITSELF AT THE BOTTOM OF THE ECONOMIC KEEP WENT TO BUSINESSES AND OTHERS WHEN THINGS ARE GOOD. WHEN THINGS GET BAD THEY’RE THE FIRST ONES IN THE WHOLE. WITH THINGS. GET BETTER THE LAST ONES OUT. IN ADDITION TO THAT WE HAVE A JUSTICE SYSTEM IN THESE. REPAIR AND WE’RE JUST ONLY BEGINNING SLIGHTLY TO MAKE SOME PROGRESS NOW. AND THIRDLY IF YOU’RE A BUSINESS PERSON LET ME FOR THIS WAY. EVERY PERSON OUT THERE ONCE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE IT FOR THE FAMILY. YES MY DAD YOUR SEVEN EXPRESSION EVERYBODY’S ENTITLED TO BE TREATED WITH DIGNITY THE NEC JOE YOUR JOB IS ABOUT A LOT MORE THAN A PAYCHECK IT’S ABOUT YOUR DIGNITY IT’S ABOUT RESPECT IT’S ABOUT YOUR PLACE THE COMMUNITY IT’S ABOUT BEING ABLE HOLD YOUR HEAD UP BY BEING ABLE TO LOOK YOU KIDNEY I’D SAY HONEY EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE OKAY. FOR TOO MANY PEOPLE PARTICULARLY AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY THEY CAN’T SAY THAT THAT’S NOT ABLE TO BE DONE. SO ONE OF THE THINGS I WANT TO TALK WITH YOU ABOUT TODAY IS HOW DO WE BUILD WEALTH IS ULTIMATELY ULTIMATELY. THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY ONLY IS GOING TO HAVE HIS PLACE EQUAL TO EVERYONE ELSE WHEN THEY’RE IN A POSITION TO BE ABLE TO BUILD WEALTH. BABEL OF BILL WEALTH AND THAT GOES FOR EVERYTHING FROM ACCESS TO BE ABLE TO PURCHASE A HOME ACCESS TO JOBS ACCESS TO JUST BEING ABLE TO HAVE AN EVEN SHOT. AND THAT’S WHAT I HOPE WE’RE GONNA TALK ABOUT TODAY AND IT GOES TO EDUCATION. AS WELL AS ACCESS TO EDUCATION ACCESS BEYOND. NOW EVERYTHING FROM A LOT OF POOR WHITES AND AFRICAN AMERICAN POOR AFRICAN AMERICANS AND HISPANICS LIVE IN TITLE ONE DISTRICT MEANING THAT THEY- LIVE IN SCHOOL DISTRICTS THAT HAVE VERY LOW TAX BASE. RIGHT NOW WE SPEND FIFTEEN BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR TO COMPENSATE FOR THAT LOW TAX BASE I AGREE SAID THE FORTY FIVE BILLION DOLLARS BUT IT DOES IT KEEP TEACHERS IN SCHOOLS BECAUSE WE’RE SHORT TEACHERS SIGNIFICANTLY. HUNDRED TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND TEACHERS SHORT RIGHT NOW BE OVER HALF A MILLION BY TWENTY TWENTY THREE THE DISHES THAT WE FIND OURSELVES IN A CIRCUMSTANCE WHERE WE USED TO HAVE IN OUR

SCHOOLS IN THE OLD DAYS USED TO HAVE ONE. RIGHT RIGHT NOW WE DON’T HAVE ANY SWEEP FIRST SAID NO SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS IN OUR SCHOOLS. ANSWER TEACHERS COME INTO SCHOOL AND EXPECT TO THE SOLVE EVERY PROBLEM WELL THERE IS ONE SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST FOR EVERY ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND SEVEN. KIDS IN SCHOOL SHOULD BE CLOSER TO ONE TO FIVE HUNDRED. WE CAN DO THAT BY INCREASING THE MONEY I JUST TALKED ABOUT FROM FIFTEEN TO FORTY FIVE. AND SAID EVERY SINGLE CHILD IS THREE YEARS OLD FOR YOUR HIS OWN FOR YEARS OLD TODAY K. BUT THE SCHOOL. ALL THIS. OF THE GREAT UNIVERSE. IN THE STATE NEVER OTHER. OUT ALL A YEAR. THAT WILL INCREASE BY 58% CHANCE OF ALL THE WAY THROUGH. NOT WHAT IS IT CODE THEY COME FROM. NO MATTER WHERE ARE. AND ABLE TO DO WITH GETTING. AND TRY. AND THEN WE’RE GONNA ABOUT I THINK A BIG ISSUE HERE IS ACCESS TO APPRENTICESHIPS ACCESS TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN AND COLLEGE. AND THE STUDENT DEBT REQUIREMENTS OR HAVE THEIR- HOPE WE CAN TALK ABOUT THAT BUT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT BASICALLY ONE BIG IMPORTANT THING. HOW DO WE CHANGE THE DYNAMIC. THIS IS A GIGANTIC OPPORTUNITY. AS BAD AS THINGS HAVE GOTTEN. THE BLINDERS A SORT OF AND TAKEN OFF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THEY LOOK OUT THERE WE HAVE A- ON UP WE HAVE. RACE RELATIONS THAT ARE JUST BEEN DRAWN INTO FOCUS AND- EVERYTHING FROM POLICE BRUTALITY TO ON I LACK OF ACCESS. AND BLAIR CAN PEOPLE HAVE ALL OF A SUDDEN AVERAGE PEOPLE GONE MY LORD. HOLY MACKEREL I DIDN’T KNOW. IT WAS JUST BAD A LOT OF DIDN’T KNOW WHAT DID. WELL I DIDN’T KNOW SUSPECT. AND YOU KNOW TALKING TO- WELL GOOD UNDER I’M TALKING TOO MUCH NOW MY OPENING STATEMENT BUT HERE’S THE POINT THE POINT IS I BELIEVE WE HAVE A GIGANTIC OPPORTUNITY. A GIGANTIC OPPORTUNITY TO FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE THE SYSTEMIC RACISM AND THE SYSTEMIC PROBLEMS EXIST IN OUR SYSTEM. AND I THINK WE HAVE TO DO IT BUT ONLY ONE WAY TO DO IT. WE GOT TO SHOW UP AND VOTE BUT I BELIEVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NOT CAN BE TURNED OFF. I BELIEVE NO MATTER WHAT THE ADMINISTRATION DOES TRY TO MAKE IT HARD WROTE FOR EVERYONE NOT JUST PEOPLE OF COLOR BUT EVERYONE. NO MATTER WHAT I THINK YOU’RE GOING TO VOTE YOU SEE WHAT’S HAPPENED IN VIRGINIA EARLY VOTING HAVE FOR OUR â– LINES THE FIRST DAY AND WE’RE WHO WERE FOR OVER FORTY DAYS OUT PEOPLE ARE GONNA SHOW UP AND VOTE THERE WILL NOT BE DISSUADED. SO THAT’S WHY I’M OPTIMISTIC YOU KNOW I WAS ASKED BY. ONE OF FOREIGN LEADERS WHEN I WAS OVERSEAS WHEN I WAS A VICE PRESIDENT SHOULD CATER FIND AMERICA FORMER. AS YES I CAN A ONE WORD. POSSIBILITIES STABILITY’S YOU’RE ONLY. THAT PLEASE ENTER EXPERT. WITHOUT BARTON MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR EVERY. THAT’S A THIS IS ALL ABOUT I THINK WE’RE GONNA CHECK ON IN THE YEAR TWENTY TWENTY TO MAKE THESE CHANGES AND WITH THAT. AS MY MOTHER WHICH I’M GONNA CRUSH UP AND- TAKE ANY QUESTIONS JOB. YES GET AWAY FOR FROM THE START PROJECT- MY FIRST QUESTION YOU SORT OF SPOKE ABOUT EDUCATION AND FOR ME- I’M THE ONLY PERSON IN MY FAMILY TO GO TO H. AND H. B. C U. N. U.

THE JUST THE DRIVER A CLEARLY JUST A DRIVER BUT- IT YOU KNOW SO HE IS CLEARLY SEEING ALL THESE OFFICERS OUT THERE AND HOPEFULLY THIS IS GOING TO START REGISTERING WITH THEM IT MAY BE IT IS IT IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY IS MOVING A LITTLE BIT QUICKER AND IT SEEMS LIKE NOW WE START TO MOVE OUT OF THAT NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE HE KEPT MAKING THOSE BLOCKS. DO I WANNA UPDATE EVERYBODY ON A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT WE’RE JUST GETTING WORD THAT AT APPROXIMATELY NINE THIRTY FOUR THERE WAS A CALL THAT CAME IN REGARDING A SHOOTING ON COMPTON AVENUE AND EVEN BOULEVARD. AND THAT’S WHERE THEY SAW POTENTIALLY THE SUSPECT WHEN OFFICERS ARRIVED THEY DIDN’T FIND ANY EVIDENCE OF A SHOOTING THERE WAS NO VICTIM HOWEVER THEY DID SEE A PERSON RUNNING FROM OFFICERS AND THAT’S WHEN THE PURSUIT STARTED SO THAT’S THE ORIGIN OF THIS PURSUIT I ALSO WANT TO MENTION WE HAVE A LOT GOING ON RIGHT NOW SO THERE’S MORE BREAKING NEWS WE HAVE BEEN STANDING BY FOR THE BRIANNA TAYLOR.

OBVIOUSLY THEY’RE GOING TO TREAT THIS LIKE THIS. PERSON IS ARMED THAT’S GOING TO BE THERE STANCE THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THEY’VE BEEN KIND OF JUST IN THE AREA NOT RIGHT ON IT MADE WHITE. AND NOT TRYING TO BLOCK A MANNER TO ANY KIND OF PIT MANEUVER. RIGHT NOW THIS IS

ON THE PHONE JODIE ARMOR PROFESSOR AT USC JOY JODIE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US THIS MORNING WHAT ARE YOUR FIRST THOUGHTS ON THE DECISION GOOD TO BE ABLE TO BRING UP THE SUBJECT OF A CRITICAL THIRD DOWN AFTER A LONG HOT SUMMER APPROACH. AND I THINK THERE’S GOING TO A LOT MORE FROM. BY THE WHO WANTED TO BE FROM OF ALMOST. BY SIDE. BECAUSE YOU KNOW MY- MURDER BOTH. MEN I THOUGHT THEY KNEW PEOPLE BE LEFT ON BY LEGAL. WHAT COULD BE SO COULDN’T WALK ME THE DAY BEHIND THIS WILL KIND OF SIR MUST HAVE OCCURRED WHAT ARE WE GONNA PUT SEE IN THAT ONCE WE HEAR FOR THE KENTUCKY ATTORNEY GENERAL WHY THEY WOULD CHARGE ONE. WE WHAT WE’RE HEARING SHOOTING INTO ME UP RECKLESS AND AS JUST SAID. NO WORDS WILL BE TO DEATH WHAT KILL HER OF MOBILE DID IN. IN ORDER BODY AND FROM GONNA TRY FROM THE CALL BEST CALLED THINK WELL MADE RIO DE. FOR ONE FOR NOW THEY WERE ACTING ON A SEARCH WARRANT YOU THOUGH THE NOT WARRANTS WILL BE OFF TO SAY I’VE BEEN REVIEW WHEN I WAS AT FROM INSIDE THAT UP. IT WAS REASONABLE ME TO SEE BACK THAT GOING TO BE THE MAIN ARGUMENT AND THAT IS THE VERY DIFFICULT ARGUMENT OVER FOR POCKET. EVEN THOUGH. THE BIG. WERE LYING IN BED AT HOME NOT DOING ANYTHING WRONG MANY OF WHO WOULD THINK THERE WERE LINE AND ALL. IN ALL OWN HOMES ALL FOUND. IF SOMEBODY BY YEAH AN. UNDER THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES MANY TIMES JODY LET’S LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MAGNITUDE OF THIS MOMENT YOU KNOW DURING THIS PANDEMIC IN THIS MOVEMENT THE BAILOUT B. L M. MOVEMENT HAS OCCURRED. FULL FORCE WE’RE SEEING A NUMBER OF PEOPLE RIGHT NOW. WALKING PROTESTS STAYING IN KENTUCKY IN LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY TALK TO ME ABOUT THE MAGNITUDE OF THIS MOMENT. AND HER MOMENT IN HISTORY. IT DIDN’T THE TAKE YOU MOMENT IN THE HISTORY OF BOTH MOVEMENTS THIS PARTICULAR MOVEMENT WE’VE BEEN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE- USABLE RIGHT AMENDMENT. AND BRIANNA PLAYER BUT IT GOT A LOT OF. HE MORMON THE POLICE BATON. SOUNDS LIKE WE JUST JODY ARMOUR OF AT U. S C. JUST TALKING ABOUT THE M THAT BRIEF TAYLOR HAS ON B. L A. MOVEMENT AGAIN THIS IS A LIVE LOOK FROM LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY WE JUST GOT WORD ABOUT THE DECISION IN THE CASE OF BRIANNA TAYLOR’S SHOOTING DEATHS OF WHAT WE’RE HEARING RIGHT NOW IS THAT NO OFFICERS WERE CHARGED DIRECTLY IN HER DEATH FOR SHOOTING AND KILLING HER ONLY ONE OF THE THREE OFFICERS IS FACING THREE COUNTS OVER SHOOTING INTO NEIGHBORING APARTMENTS ESSENTIALLY RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT THAT’S WHY THAT OFFICERS BOND IS SET AT FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS. I ALSO HAVE MARLA TAY IS ON THE DESK WITH ME IT IS BEEN SIX MONTHS OF AWAITING THIS DECISION NOW WE HAVE IT MARLA AND OBVIOUSLY A LOT OF PEOPLE UPSET BY IT WE AGAIN ARE WAITING FOR THE KENTUCKY ATTORNEY GENERAL DANIEL CAMERON TO COME DOWN AND REALLY FLUSH OUT WHY THIS DECISION WAS MADE IN THIS WAY I MEAN THE HEADLINE HERE IT WITHOUT QUESTION IS THAT NO OFFICERS AS YOU’VE BEEN POINTING OUT. OF AN ASSET THAT ARE ACTUALLY DIRECTLY CHARGED IN BRIANNA TAYLOR’S DEATH IT’S AMAZING TO ME THAT WE’RE STILL SEEING RELATIVELY PEACEFUL STREETS IN LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY AS YOU SAID THAT THE UNDER STATE OF EMERGENCY OR CURFEW HAS ALREADY BEEN SET IN PLACE BY THE MAYOR THERE FROM NINE PM TONIGHT UNTIL SIX AM TOMORROW THE MOST CERTAINLY THIS IS NOT THE OUTCOME THAT THEY WANTED THIS SPECIFIC OFFICER ONE OF THREE RESPONDED ON THE NIGHT OF MARCH THIRTEENTH- THE ONE WHO IS NOW FACING THREE COUNTS OF ENDANGERMENT IN CONNECTION TO THE POLICE RAID THAT IS OFFICER BRETT. HANKINSON HE WAS THE ONE WHO WAS ACTUALLY FIRED FROM THE LOUISVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT BUT HE WAS FIRED NOT RIGHT AWAY THAT’S THE OTHER THING TO KEEP IN MIND THAT THE SHOOTING DEATH WAS MARCH THE THIRTEENTH HE WASN’T FIRED UNTIL JUNE TWENTY THIRD SO IT TOOK SOME TIME FOR MOVEMENT TO HAPPEN THERE WITH HIS FIERY IN IN THAT TIME I’M- OF COURSE THAT. WHEN WE BEGAN TO LEARN ALL ABOUT BREANNA TAYLOR NOW AS YOU SAID SHE’S BECOME ALMOST A HOUSEHOLD NAME UP OF. THE POSTER CHILD FOR RACIAL INJUSTICE IN THIS COUNTRY THERE ARE TWO OTHER OFFICERS WHO DON’T FACE ANY CHARGES AS A RESULT OF THIS AND

THEY ARE NOT FIRED FROM THE LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY POLICE DEPARTMENT THEY ARE IN FACT. ON ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE **** INVESTIGATION HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED DAYS AT THIS POINT- IT AND- AGAIN I DO THINK IT’S REMARKABLE THAT WE’RE SEEING. PEACEFUL PROTEST IF YOU WANT TO CALL THAT ON THE STREETS OF LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY OF COURSE WERE CURIOUS TO SEE IF ANYTHING UNFOLD ANY UNREST HERE IN OUR AREA OF LOS ANGELES WHICH YOU WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED. AND WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT BRETT HANKERSON THE OFFICER YOU JUST MENTIONED THE THREE COUNT INDICTMENT. FOR HIM SO THIS IS WHAT WE’RE LEARNING ABOUT THAT NIGHT AND THE NIGHT OF THE SHOOTING HE FIRED INTO A SLIDING GLASS PATIO DOOR AND WINDOW A BRIANNA TAYLOR’S APARTMENT BUILDING. BOTH OF WHICH WERE COVERED WITH BLINDS AND THAT IS A VIOLATION OF DEPARTMENT POLICY THAT REQUIRES OFFICERS TO HAVE A LINE. OF SIGHT HE’S ONLY ONE OF THE THREE OFFICERS WHO WAS DISMISSED FROM THE FORCE SO AS YOU MENTIONED HE WAS FIRED IN JUNE DESPITE THIS SHOOTING HAPPENING. IN MARCH I’M SURE THAT HAVING TO DO WITH THE UNREST AND HOW EVERYBODY FROM ATHLETES TO CIVILIANS PROTESTS TRYING TO GET THESE CHARGES TO COME DOWN SO HE IS AGAIN ONLY ONE OF THE THREE OFFICERS WHO WAS DISMISSED FROM THE FORCE WITH THE TERMINATION LETTER STATING THAT HE SHOWED. QUOTE AND EXTREME INDIFFERENCE TO THE VALUE OF HUMAN LIFE. AND NOW TO HEAR TODAY THAT NO ONE INCLUDING OFFICER BRETT HANKINSON A FORMER OFFICER BRETT HANKINS AND WAS NOT CHARGED DIRECTLY IN BRIANNA TAYLOR’S DEATH. IT’S A BIT CONFUSING BUT IT’S ONLY FACE FOR THREE COUNTS OF OVER SHOOTING INTO NEIGHBORING APARTMENTS AND RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT SO THAT I’M SHORT DISCREPANCY BETWEEN FIRING HIM BECAUSE OF QUOTE AND EXTREME INDIFFERENCE TO THE VALUE OF HUMAN LIFE. AND THEN NOT CHARGING HIM BECAUSE OF HIS EXTREME INDIFFERENCE TO THE VALUE OF HUMAN LIFE DOESN’T SEEM TO CORRELATE SO WE’RE SEEING SOME MOVEMENT HAPPENING IN FRONT OF THE PODIUM. YOU’RE NOT SEEING IT RIGHT NOW. THERE IT IS. ALRIGHT EVERYBODY WE ARE NOW GOING TO THE KENTUCKY ATTORNEY GENERAL WHERE HE WILL BE NOW SPEAKING AND GIVING AN UPDATE. ON THIS CASE LET’S LISTEN A- I KNOW THAT MANY. AND LOOPHOLE AND ACROSS THE COMMONWEALTH IN COUNTRY HAVE BEEN ANXIOUSLY AWAITING THE COMPLETION OF OUR INVESTIGATION INTO THE DEATH OF MISS BRIANNA TAYLOR. PRIOR TO THIS ANNOUNCEMENT I SPOKE WITH MS PALMER. BRIANNA TAYLOR’S MOTHER TO SHARE WITH HER THE RESULTS FROM THE GRAND JURY. MANY OF YOU IN THIS ROOM KNOW THAT I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY LAST MONTH TO MEET IN PERSON WITH HER. IN OTHER MEMBERS OF MISTAKE FAMILY. INCLUDING MISS BEYONC AUSTIN AND MR NILE PALMER. I WANT TO ONCE AGAIN PUBLICLY EXPRESS MY CONDOLENCES. EVERY DAY THIS FAMILY WAKES UP TO THE REALIZATION. THAT SOMEONE THEY LOVED IS NO LONGER WITH THEM THERE’S NOTHING I CAN OFFER TODAY. TO WAKE TAKE AWAY THE GRIEF AND HEARTACHE. THIS FAMILY IS EXPERIENCING AS A RESULT. OF LOSING A CHILD. A NIECE. A SISTER AND A FRIEND WHAT I CAN PROVIDE TODAY OR THE FAX WHICH MY OFFICE HAS WORKED LONG AND HARD TO UNCOVER ANALYZED AND SCRUTINIZED. SINCE ACCEPTING THIS CASE IN MID MAY HI URGE EVERYONE LISTENING TODAY TO NOT LOSE SIGHT OF THE FACT THAT A LIFE HAS BEEN LOST A TRAGEDY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. THE DECISION BEFORE MY OFFICE AS THE SPECIAL PROSECUTOR IN THIS CASE WAS NOT TO DECIDE THE LOSS OF MISS TAYLOR’S LIFE WAS A TRAGEDY THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION IS UNEQUIVOCALLY YES. THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT THIS IS A GUT WRENCHING EMOTIONAL CASE AND THE PAIN THAT MANY PEOPLE ARE FEELING IS UNDERSTANDABLE. I DEEPLY CARE. ABOUT THE VALUE AND SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE DESERVES PROTECTION AND IN THIS CASE. A HUMAN LIFE WAS LOST. WE CANNOT FORGET THAT. MY JOB AS A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR IN THIS CASE WAS TO PUT EMOTIONS ASIDE INVESTIGATE THE FACTS TO DETERMINE IF CRIMINAL VIOLATIONS OF STATE LAW RESULTED IN THE LOSS OF MISS TAYLOR’S LIFE. THIS INCLUDED EXAMINING THE ACTIONS OF SERGEANT JONATHAN MATTINGLY DETECTIVE BRAD HANKINSON. AND DETECTIVE MILES BECAUSE GROVE THE THREE OFFICERS WHO FIRED THEIR WEAPONS IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS OF MARCH THIRTEENTH. IN WORKING WITH OUR FEDERAL PARTNERS ON THIS CASE IT WAS DETERMINED THAT WHILE WE WOULD SHARE INFORMATION TO ADVANCE OUR RESPECTIVE INVESTIGATIONS MUST ALSO MAINTAIN SOME LEVEL OF

SEPARATION TO ENSURE THE INTEGRITY. OF EACH INVESTIGATION. WHEN EXAMINING ISSUES REGARDING POTENTIAL CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS WE DETERMINED THAT ANY SUCH VIOLATION. ARE BETTER ADDRESSED THROUGH A FEDERAL LED INVESTIGATION. IN ISSUES INVOLVING POTENTIAL CRIMINAL ACTS CONCERNING THE SHOOTING ARE BETTER ADDRESSED BY A STATE LED INVESTIGATION. WITH THIS IN MIND OUR INVESTIGATION FOCUSED ON THE EVENTS THAT TOOK PLACE IN MISS TAYLOR’S APARTMENT THIRTEENTH IN THE MONTHS SINCE TAKING THIS CASE OUR DEDICATED TEAM OF PROSECUTORS AND INVESTIGATORS WITH MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED YEARS OF COMBINED CAREER EXPERIENCE CONDUCTED A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE EVENTS THAT LED TO MISS TAYLOR’S DEATH THE TEAM IS HERE WITH ME TODAY I WANNA PERSONALLY AND PUBLICLY THANK THEM. FOR THEIR TIRELESS WORK. AT THESE MEN AND WOMEN ARE TRUE PUBLIC SERVANTS. WHO FOR MONTHS HAVE SHOWN UP EVERY DAY WITH A DESIRE FOR ONE THING. AND THAT IS TO SEEK THE TRUTH. WE CITED WHILE WE WOULD EXAMINE MATERIALS GATHERED BY- IN PD’S PUBLIC INTEGRITY UNIT WE WOULD NEED TO CONDUCT OUR OWN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION AND START FROM SCRATCH IN THE INTEREST OF THOROUGHNESS FAIRNESS. AND FINDING THE TRUTH THERE WAS NO VIDEO OR BODY CAMERA FOOTAGE OF THE OFFICERS ATTEMPTED EXECUTION OF A SEARCH WARRANT AT MISS TAYLOR’S RESIDENTS. VIDEO FOOTAGE BEGINS AT THE POINT THAT AREA PATROL OFFICERS ARRIVE AT THE LOCATION THEREFORE THE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS FOR MARCH THIRTEENTH HAD TO BE PIECED TOGETHER THROUGH BALLISTICS EVIDENCE NINE ONE ONE CALLS. POLICE RADIO TRAFFIC IN INTERVIEWS. WE UTILIZED INFORMATION FROM THE KENTUCKY STATE POLICE LOCAL MEDICAL EXAMINERS AS WELL AS WORKING WITH THE FBI CRIME LAB IN QUANTICO TO SECURE A TRAJECTORY ANALYSIS AND BALLISTICS REPORT OUR TEAM CONDUCTED INTERVIEWS IN THIS CASE SPENT THOUSANDS OF HOURS EXAMINING ALL OF THE VALUABLE EVIDENCE WE CONCLUDED OUR LAST INTERVIEW. IN THIS CASE THIS PAST FRIDAY AND BEGAN OUR GRAND JURY PRESENTATION ON MONDAY. AS LONG AS THE CASE IS MAKING ITS WAY THROUGH OUR LEGAL SYSTEM. I CAN ONLY SPEAK IN GENERAL TERMS ABOUT OUR INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION AND FINDINGS. AS THE PROSECUTOR I’M PROHIBITED BY THE KENTUCKY RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT FOR MAKING PUBLIC COMMENTS THAT COULD IN ANY WAY PREJUDICE THIS CASE AS IT MOVES FORWARD. EACH STATE HAS DIFFERENT RULES ABOUT WHAT PROSECUTORS CAN AND CANNOT SAY THE KENTUCKY RULES ARE CLEAR THAT I’M PROHIBITED FROM MAKING COMMENTS THAT COULD SWAY PUBLIC OPINION. HEIGHTEN PUBLIC CONDEMNATION OF THOSE INVOLVED IN THE CASE THESE ARE CRUCIAL RULES TO ENSURE DUE PROCESS UNDER THE CONSTITUTION. WHEN PROSECUTORS PREMATURELY RELEASED INFORMATION ABOUT THE CASE TO THE PUBLIC CAN RISK JUSTICE BY POISONING THE JURY POOL. VIOLATING THE ACCUSED’S RIGHTS TO A FAIR TRIAL IN EVEN JEOPARDIZING THE FINAL VERDICT THE SUCCESS OF OUR LEGAL SYSTEM IS PREDICATED ON THE PRINCIPLE THAT THE ACCUSED IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. DESPITE PASSIONS OPINIONS AND DESIRE FOR EVERY DETAIL TO BE KNOWN THE RULE OF LAW MUST APPLY JUSTICE MUST BE DONE. IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS OF MARCH THIRTEENTH OFFICERS FROM LMPD EXECUTED A SEARCH WARRANT AT THREE ZERO ZERO THREE SPRINGFIELD DRIVE APARTMENT FOR. THIS WAS MYSTERY ON A TAILOR’S RESIDENTS THE OFFICERS WERE ADVISED BY SUPERIORS TO KNOCK AND ANNOUNCE THEIR PRESENCE IN SERVING THIS SPECIFIC SEARCH WARRANT. THE SCOPE OF OUR INVESTIGATION DID NOT INCLUDE THE ATTAINMENT OF THAT WAR VIOLIN PT’S CRIMINAL INTERDICTION DIVISION. FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT PARTNERS ARE CONDUCTING THAT INVESTIGATION SERGEANT MATTINGLY AND DETECTIVES COSGROVE AND HANKINSON HAD NO KNOWN INVOLVEMENT IN THE PRECEDING INVESTIGATION OR PAYMENT OF THE SEARCH WARRANT. THEY WERE CALLED INTO DUTY AS EXTRA PERSONNEL TO EFFECTUATE THE SERVICE OF THE SEARCH WARRANT THEY ONLY HAD INFORMATION CONVEYED TO THEM DURING THEIR PRIOR BRIEFING. EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT OFFICERS BOTH KNOCKED AND ANNOUNCED THEIR PRESENCE AT THE APARTMENT. THE OFFICER STATEMENTS ABOUT THEIR ANNOUNCEMENT ARE CORROBORATED

BY AN INDEPENDENT WITNESS WHO WAS NEAR IN A PROXIMITY TO APARTMENT FOR. IN OTHER WORDS THE WAR IT WAS NOT SERVED AS A NO KNOCK WARRANT. WHEN OFFICERS WERE NOT UNABLE TO GET ANYONE TO ANSWER OR OPEN THE DOOR TO APARTMENT FOR. DECISION WAS MADE TO BREACH THE DOOR. AFTER REACHING THE DOOR. SERGEANT MATTINGLY WAS THE FIRST AND ONLY OFFICER. TO ENTER THE RESIDENCE SERGEANT MATTINGLY IDENTIFIED TWO INDIVIDUALS STANDING BESIDE ONE ANOTHER AT THE END OF THE HALL. A MALE AND A FEMALE. IN HIS STATEMENT HE SAYS THAT THE MAIL WAS HOLDING A GUN ARMS EXTENDED IN A SHOOTING STANCE. SERGEANT MATTINGLY SAW THE MAN’S GUN FIRE. HEARD A BOOM IN IMMEDIATELY KNEW HE WAS SHOT AS A RESULT OF FEELING HEAT. IN HIS UPPER THIGH. KENETH WALKER FIRED THE SHOT THAT HIT SERGEANT MATTINGLY AND THERE’S NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THAT SERGEANT MATTINGLY WAS HIT BY FRIENDLY FIRE FROM OTHER OFFICERS. MISTER WALKER ADMITTED THAT HE FIRED ONE SHOT AND WAS THE FIRST TO SHOOT. IN ADDITION TO ALL THE TESTIMONY THE BALLISTICS REPORT SHOWS THAT THE ROUND THAT STRUCK SERGEANT MATTINGLY WAS FIRED FROM A NINE MILLIMETER HANDGUN THE LMPD OFFICERS. FIRED FORTY CALIBER HANDGUNS. SERGEANT MATTINGLY RETURNED FIRE DOWN THE HALLWAY MATTINGLY FIRED SIX SHOTS. ALMOST SIMULTANEOUSLY DETECTIVE BECAUSE GROW ALSO IN THE DOORWAY SHOT SIXTEEN TIMES THIS ALL TOOK PLACE IN A MATTER OF SECONDS. IN TOTAL SIX BULLETS STRUCK MISS TAYLOR MEDICAL EVIDENCE OBTAINED BY OUR TEAM INDICATES THAT ONLY ONE SHOT WAS FATAL FURTHER MEDICAL EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT MISS TAYLOR. WOULD HAVE DIED FROM THE FATAL SHOT WITHIN A FEW SECONDS TO TWO MINUTES AFTER BEING STRUCK. DETECTED HANKINSON FIRED HIS WEAPON TEN TIMES INCLUDING FROM A OUTSIDE SLIDING GLASS DOOR AND THROUGH A BEDROOM WINDOW. SOME BOOKS TRAVELED THROUGH APARTMENT FOR IN INTO APARTMENT THREE BEFORE SOME EXITED THAT APARTMENT. AT THE TIME THREE RESIDENTS OF APARTMENT THREE WERE AT HOME WANE

INDIVIDUALS IN APARTMENT THREE IN DANGER OF SERIOUS PHYSICAL INJURY OR DEATH. THE CHARGE ONE ENDANGERMENT IN THE FIRST DEGREE IS A CLASS D. FELONY AND IF FOUND GUILTY THE QUEUES CAN SERVE UP TO FIVE YEARS. FOR EACH COUNT. KENTUCKY LAW STATES THAT A PERSON IS GUILTY OF WANTON ENDANGERMENT. IN THE FIRST DEGREE WHEN UNDER CIRCUMSTANCES MANIFESTING IN ST THE DIFFERENCE TO THE VALUE OF HUMAN LIFE. HE WANTONLY ENGAGES IN CONDUCT WHICH CREATES A SUBSTANTIAL DANGER OF DEATH. OR SERIOUS PHYSICAL INJURY TO ANOTHER PERSON. MY OFFICE IS PREPARED TO PROVE THESE CHARGES AT TRIAL. HOWEVER IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT HE IS PRESUMED INNOCENT. UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. DURING THE LAST SIX MONTHS WE’VE ALL HEARD MENTION OF POSSIBLE CHARGES. COULD BE BROUGHT IN THIS CASE IT’S IMPORTANT UNDERSTAND THAT ALL THE CHARGES THAT HAVE BEEN MENTIONED HAVE SPECIFIC MEANINGS AND RAMIFICATIONS CRIMINAL HOMICIDE ENCOMPASSES THE TAKING OF A LIFE BY ANOTHER WHILE THERE ARE SIX POSSIBLE HOMICIDE CHARGES UNDER KENTUCKY LAW. THESE CHARGES ARE NOT APPLICABLES TO THE FACTS BEFORE US BECAUSE OUR INVESTIGATION SHOWED. IN THE GRAND JURY AGREED MATTINGLY AND COSGROVE WERE JUSTIFIED IN THE RETURN OF DEADLY FIRE. AFTER HAVING BEEN FIRED UPON BY KENNETH WALKER LET ME STATE THAT AGAIN ACCORDING TO KENTUCKY LAW. THE USE OF FORCE BY MATTINGLY AND COSGROVE WAS JUSTIFIED TO PROTECT THEMSELVES. THIS JUSTIFICATION BARS US FROM PURSUING CRIMINAL CHARGES. IN MISS RIANA TAYLOR’S DEATH. THE TRUTH IS NOW BEFORE US THE FACTS HAVE BEEN EXAMINED AND A GRAND JURY COMPRISED OF OUR PEERS AND FELLOW CITIZENS HAS MADE A DECISION. JUSTICE IS NOT OFTEN EASY. DOES NOT FIT THE MOLD OF PUBLIC OPINION AND IT DOES NOT CONFORM TO SHIFTING STANDARDS IT ANSWERS ONLY TO THE FAX INTO THE LAW. WITH THIS IN MIND WE MUST NOW ASK OURSELVES WHERE DO WE GO. FROM HERE. WE CONTINUE TO PROSECUTE THE CHARGES BROUGHT IN THIS CASE AS IT NOW PROCEEDS TO THE JUSTICE SYSTEM. AND MOVED TO TRIAL THAT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY AND THIS WILL BE DONE WHILE THE FBI CONTINUES ITS INVESTIGATION. INTO VIOLATIONS POTENTIAL VIOLATIONS OF FEDERAL LAW I KNOW THAT NOT EVERYONE WILL BE SATISFIED WITH THE CHARGES WE REPORTED TODAY MY TEAM SET OUT TO INVESTIGATE THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING MISS TAYLOR’S DEATH. WE DID IT WITH A SINGULAR GOAL IN MIND PURSUING THE TRUTH CAN TALKING’S DESERVE NO LESS. THE CITY OF LOBEL DESERVES NO LESS EVERY PERSON HAS AN IDEA OF WHAT THEY THINK JUSTICE IS MY ROLE AS SPECIAL PROSECUTOR IN THIS CASE IS SET ASIDE EVERYTHING IN PURSUIT OF THE TRUTH. I JOB IS TO PRESENT THE FACTS TO THE GRAND JURY. AND THE GRAND JURY THAT APPLIES THOSE FACTS TO THE LAW. IF WE SIMPLY ACT. ON EMOTION OR OUTRAGE. THERE IS NO JUSTICE MOB JUSTICE IS NOT JUSTICE JUST ASSAULT BY VIOLENCE IS NOT JUSTICE. IT JUST BECOMES REVENGE IN OUR SYSTEM CRIMINAL JUSTICE ISN’T THE QUEST FOR REVENGE IT’S THE QUEST FOR TRUTH EVIDENCE AND FACTS IN THE USE OF THAT TRUTH AS WE FAIRLY APPLY OUR LOSS. OUR REACTION TO THE TRUTH TODAY SAYS WHAT KIND OF SOCIETY WE WANT TO BE. WE REALLY WANT THE TRUTH OR DO WE WANT A TRUTH. THAT FITS OUR NARRATIVE. DO YOU WANT THE FAX ARE WE CONTENT TO BLINDLY

ACCEPT OUR OWN VERSION OF EVENTS. WE AS A COMMUNITY MUST MAKE THIS DECISION. I UNDERSTAND THAT MISS BROWN A TAYLOR’S DEATH. HAS BECOME A PART OF A NATIONAL STORY AND CONVERSATION. BUT WE MUST ALSO REMEMBER THE FAX IN THE COLLECTION OF EVIDENCE IN THIS CASE ARE DIFFERENT THAN CASES ELSEWHERE IN THE COUNTRY. EACH IS UNIQUE AND CANNOT BE COMPARED. THERE WILL BE A CELEBRITIES INFLUENCERS AND ACTIVISTS WHO HAVING NEVER LIVED IN KENTUCKY WE TRY TO TELL US HOW TO FEEL SUGGESTING THEY UNDERSTAND THE FACTS OF THIS CASE THAT THEY KNOW OUR COMMUNITY IN THE COMMONWEALTH BETTER THAN WE DO. BUT THEY DON’T LET’S NOT GIVE IN TO THEIR ATTEMPTS TO INFLUENCE OUR THINKING OR CAPTURE OUR EMOTIONS AT THE END OF THE DAY IT IS UP TO US WE LIVE HERE TOGETHER WE WORK HERE AND RAISE OUR FAMILIES HERE TOGETHER I URGE THOSE PROTESTING ON THE STREETS. TO REMEMBER THIS PEACEFUL PROTESTS ARE YOUR RIGHT. AS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN INSTIGATING AND DESTRUCTION ARE NOT I SPOKE WITH BOTH MAYOR FISHER AND GOVERNOR BUSH YEARS IN THE DAYS LEADING UP TO THIS ANNOUNCEMENT AND I URGE THEM TO DO WHAT IS NECESSARY TO MAINTAIN LAW AND ORDER AND TO PROTECT OUR CITIES. AND OUR PEOPLE. WE HAVE A LONG ROAD AHEAD BOTH AS WE PURSUE THIS CASE. THE CRIMINAL SYSTEM. AND AS WE ADDRESS THE PAIN. IN THE LOCAL COMMUNITY. I’M COMMITTED TO BEING PART OF THE HEALING PROCESS WHEN TRAGEDY OCCURS WE MUST MOURN. YOU MUST ALSO DO EVERYTHING WE CAN. TO PREVENT IT FROM HAPPENING AGAIN. TODAY CONSISTENT WITH THAT VIEW I’M NOT SAYING THAT I WILL CREATE A TASK FORCE TO REVIEW THE PROSECUTE PROCESS FOR SECURING REVIEWING AND EXECUTING SEARCH WARRANTS. IN KENTUCKY THE TASK FORCE WILL CONSIST OF A VARIETY OF STAKEHOLDERS INCLUDING CITIZENS MEMBERS FROM THE LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE JUDICIARY DEFENSE ATTORNEYS AND ELECTED LEADERS. I’LL BE ISSUING AN EXECUTIVE ORDER IN THE COMING DAYS TO CREATE THIS TASK FORCE I BELIEVE CONDUCTING A TOP TO BOTTOM REVIEW. OF THE SEARCH MORE PROCESS IS NECESSARY. TO DETERMINE IF CHANGES ARE REQUIRED. AND ESTABLISH BEST PRACTICES. YOU HAVE MY WORD THAT I WILL ALSO VIGOROUSLY PROSECUTE THE CRIMINAL CHARGES ANNOUNCED TODAY I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT MY TEAM OF PROSECUTORS WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE THIS CASE THEIR ATTENTION AND TIME. WE ALSO CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE GOOD MEN AND WOMEN OF OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY WHO PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE EVERY DAY TO PROTECT AND TO SERVE AND I WILL FIGHT FOR THOSE ACROSS OUR STATE. WHO FEEL LIKE THEIR VOICE ISN’T HEARD. WHO FEEL MARGINALIZED JUDGE AND POWERLESS TO BRING ABOUT CHANGE IN A WORLD THAT IS FORCING MANY OF US TO PICK A SIDE. I CHOOSE THE SIDE OF JUSTICE. I CHOOSE THE SIDE OF TRUTH. I CHOOSE A PATH THAT MOVES THE COMMONWEALTH FORT. IN TOWARD HEALING. YOU HAVE THAT CHOICE AS WELL. LET’S MAKE IT TOGETHER THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS. NOW TAKE SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT RACIAL. I WILL GET INTO THE SPECIFICS OF THE GET THE MAKE UP OF THE GRAND JURY YEAH I JUST NEVER IMAGINED THAT. THREE FIVE SIX IF YOU IDENTIFY WANTED TO GO OVER. WHAT TALKING ABOUT HER FLOOD. FOR A LONG OF BASE ON THE THERE’S NOTHING CONCLUDE TO THAT THE TECH HANKINSON ANY OF HIS BULLETS IT MISS TAYLOR THE SEVENTH. BAMILEKE OR OKAY SO WHAT YOU’RE SAYING OKAY THREE BASED ON THAT NONE OF OFFICERS. ALL RIGHT THE RESPONSE. DOLLARS WELL AS I SAID THE AND I THE QUESTION UP IS A TRAGEDY AND SOMETIMES THE LAW CRIMINAL LAW IS NOT ADEQUATE TO A AND I FULLY IT THAT AND I KNOW MANY THAT ARE WATCH TODAY IN THE THAT ARE LESS. RECOGNIZE THAT AS WE- BUT

THE RESPONSE IS THAT THE GRAND JURY WAS GIVEN ALL THE EVIDENCE PRESENTED ALL OF THE INFORMATION. IN ORDER TO ME ULTIMATELY MADE THE DETERMINATION- THAT- DETECTIVE HAGENS AND- WAS THE ONE TO BE INDICTED. OUR RECOMMENDATION. I CAME GRAND JURY PROCEEDINGS ARE OR SECRET SO I’M NOT GONNA GET INTO THE SPECIFICS OF DETAILS ABOUT THAT- PRECEDING WHAT I WILL SAY- IS THAT WE PRESENTED ALL OF THE INFORMATION AND THEY ULTIMATELY MADE A DETERMINATION ABOUT WHETHER TO CHARGE IN THIS INSTANCE THEY DECIDED TO INDICT- DETECTIVE I CONSIDER WELL FIRST. OF ALL THE. I’M SORRY SAY THAT AGAIN. RIGHT RIGHT USING THE CURRENCY ALL THE GAME. WELL WHAT MY ROLE A SPECIAL IN THIS CASE WAS TO PROVIDE THE IN IN FACT TO THE GRAY JURY UP DETECTIVE CAUSED AND SO MATTER I WOULD JUSTIFY IN RETURN FIRE THEY WERE UPON I’LL IT TO OTHER TO MAKE WE HAVE A- BIGGER SELF DEFENSE LAWS IN THE STATE- AND THAT IS- SOMETHING THAT EXISTED PRIOR TO THIS CASE I’LL LET. OTHERS MAKE JUDGMENTS ABOUT THAT. SIR ONE BIG QUESTION. SURROUNDING CASE IS WHETHER OR NOT THE OFFICERS KNOCKED AND ANNOUNCED THEIR PRESENCE TO. TALK ABOUT THE EVIDENCE THAT YOU CAME TO THAT THEY DID ANNOUNCE THEIR PRESENCE YES- THE STATEMENTS THAT WERE MADE. BY OFFICERS THERE THE NIGHT- OR THE MORNING OF MARCH THIRTEENTH- SHOW THAT THEY DIDN’T KNOCK AND ANNOUNCE- THE IMPORTANT POINT HERE IS THAT INFORMATION WAS CORROBORATED. BY ANOTHER WITNESS WHO WAS IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO APARTMENT FOR- WHO COOPERATED THAT INFORMATION- AND SAID THAT THERE WAS A KNOCKING SO THERE IS A- A BULLETT WAS LARGE- INVALID MIGHT BE TO A GENERAL TERM THERE WAS AN AN OBJECT THAT WAS LODGED INTO THE- INTO ONE OF HER FEET AND SO THAT IS WHAT IS BEING REFERRED TO AS THE SIXTH- I GUESS PROJECTILE. ARE YOU GOING TO REPORT ARE YOU GOING TO RELEASE THE FULL JONAS ARE YOU GOING TO RELEASE THE FULL GRAND JURY REPORT CAN YOU SAY THAT ONE MORE TIME ARE YOU GOING TO RELEASE THE FULL GRAND JURY REPORT. WELL I AM- RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THERE IS A PENDING INDICTMENT- I THINK IT IS- OUR PRACTICE AND BECAUSE THERE IS AN ONGOING FBI INVESTIGATION- TO REVISIT THAT QUESTION BUT AT THIS POINT I DON’T THINK IT’S APPROPRIATE FOR US TO RELEASE

ANY INFORMATION. THE FIRE OKAY I HAVE WORKED. FOR THREE THREE SIX SEVEN ANY OF THEM SHOT YEAH. WELL THAT IS WHAT THE SHE IS THERE WAS NOTHING TO DEMONSTRATE THAT ANY OF HIS BOLAS- HIP. WORLD WAR. FOR THE ACTIVATING ONE IS ON. WELL BEGAN BEAR ALL THE WAS GIVEN TO THE GRAND JURY AND- THEY MADE THE DECISION THAT ONE ENDANGERMENT WAS THE CHARGE TO A FILE OR TO INDICT AGAINST MR HANKINSON. OKAY AND THANK. YOU GUESS WHAT. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED WELCOME. ONE RIGHT RIGHT ALL WELL WHAT ARE YOUR YOUR LAST ABOUT AND IN ANY IN CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION THE BEST PRACTICE- AND THIS IS- WHETHER ON STATE OR FEDERAL LEVEL- IS TO NOT MAKE TOO MANY SPECIFIC COMMENTS ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION- BECAUSE YOU DO NOT WANT TO COMPROMISE THAT INVESTIGATION THEY’RE ALL ALSO ETHICAL CONSIDERATIONS. AS IN AS INVESTIGATORS AND PROSECUTORS- THAT WERE RESPONSIBLE TO ABIDE BY AS WELL SOME OF THOSE OBLIGATIONS CONTINUE NOW- BECAUSE WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO PURSUE THE PROSECUTION AGAINST A DETECTIVE HANKINSON UP IT IS IT’S MY JUDGMENT- VERY EARLY ON THAT WE NEEDED TO TAKE THIS CASE IN THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE- AS YOU KNOW- THE- COMMONWEALTH’S ATTORNEY. WAS CONFLICTED OUT OF THIS CASE BECAUSE OF A ANOTHER MATTER THAT HE WAS PURSUING I COULD FORM THE CASE OUT TO ANOTHER COMMONWEALTH’S ATTORNEY IN ONE OF OUR A HUNDRED TWENTY- COUNTIES INSTEAD I DID NOT DO THAT BECAUSE THE RESOURCES THAT WE HAVE TO BRING TO BEAR. AND THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT WE HAVE A WITH OUR FEDERAL PARTNERS- IN MY JUDGMENT- WERE NEEDED TO BE UNCOVERED THE TRUTH IN THIS CASE AND PART OF THE REASON THE INVESTIGATION TOOK SO LONG- IS BECAUSE WE NEEDED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE WERE DOING A THOROUGH JOB OF LOOKING AT ALL THE FACTS AND GATHERING ALL THE MATERIALS- INTERVIEWING WITNESSES- MAKING SURE THAT ALL OF OUR PEOPLE- FELT CONFIDENT IN THEIR PRESENTATION TO THE GRAND JURY I WILL REMIND YOU- AS LATE AS FRIDAY WE WERE STILL INTERVIEWING- PEOPLE IN THIS CASE AND SO. THE LENGTH OF IT IS BECAUSE THIS CASE DESERVE- THOROUGH AND FAIR ANALYSIS- THAT WAS NEEDED AND DESERVED BY BREACH. AND BY HER FAMILY- FOR THE OFFICERS INVOLVED- FOR THE COMMUNITY OF GLOBAL AND FOR THE COMMONWEALTH WE NEEDED TO HAVE A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION WE ALSO GOT THE FBI INVOLVED IN TERMS OF THE BALLISTICS REPORT- WE NEEDED ADDITIONAL- THERE- OF ABILITY TO SCRUTINIZE AND MAKE AN INDEPENDENT ASSESSMENT AS WELL AND SO THE LENGTH OF THE INVESTIGATION- WAS A REFLECTION I HOPE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND OF HOW IMPORTANT IT WAS THAT WE GOT THIS RIGHT. WE DON’T WANT TO RUSH IT AND WE DID NOT AND I’M GRATEFUL TO THE TEAM THAT IS BEHIND ME- FOR THE WORK THAT THEY DID LOOK OVER TWO HUNDRED YEARS OF COMBINED EXPERIENCE THESE ARE PROSECUTORS AND INVESTIGATORS WHO DON’T CARE ABOUT POLITICAL DISTINCTIONS DON’T CARE ABOUT INFLUENCE IN ANY PARTICULAR REGARD WHAT THEY CARE ABOUT IS THE TRUTH. AND WE- PRESENTED THAT TO THE GRAND JURY SIR SORRY I’M SORRY I WILL GET INTO WHAT OUR PRIVATE CONVERSATION WAS YES MA’AM YES- WHAT DO YOU SAY TO PEOPLE WHO SAY THIS IS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY NOT GETTING FULL JUSTICE AND- WHAT IS SPECIFICALLY DO YOU PLAN TO DO TO. CALM THE COMMUNITY THAT’S LONG BEEN HURTING AND YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ANGER THAT PEOPLE MIGHT FEEL I JUST CERTAINLY UNDERSTAND THE PAIN. THAT HAS BEEN BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE- TRAGIC LOSS OF MISS TAYLOR. I UNDERSTAND THAT AS A ATTORNEY GENERAL WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL- HUNDRED TWENTY COUNTIES IN TERMS OF BEING THE CHIEF LAW LEGAL OFFICER THE CHIEF. LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER I UNDERSTAND THAT I UNDERSTAND THAT AS A BLACK MAN. HOW PAINFUL. THIS IS. AND. WHICH IS WHY I WAS SO INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT FOR MAKE SURE THAT WE DID EVERYTHING WE POSSIBLY COULD TO UNCOVER EVERY FACT AND I KNOW LOOK AT THIS TEAM

MYSELF- THE MEMBERS OF THE REPRESENTATIVES THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE HAD TAKEN A LOT OF CRITICISM AND SCRUTINY- BUT THAT THEIR SCRUTINY MANY WAYS WAS MISPLACED BECAUSE THERE WAS NOT A DAY. THE PEOPLE IN THIS OFFICE DIDN’T GO TO SLEEP THINKING ABOUT THIS CASE IT WASN’T A DAY WITH THE FIRST THING ON OUR MINDS IS GETTING TO THE TRUTH IN THIS CASE. AND OBVIOUSLY AGAIN THE CRIMINAL LAW IS NOT MEANT. TO RESPOND TO EVERY OF THE INFORMATION- THAT WS AVAILABLE- A TO THE GRAND JURY IN THE IN THE GRAND JURY WAS ULTIMATELY THE ONE THAT MADE THE DECISION ABOUT- INDICTING- DETECTIVE HANKINSON- FOR ONE ENDANGERMENT. I THINK THAT IN TERMS OF WHAT HAPPENED. AND THEN WE HOURS OF MARCH THIRTEENTH- IN TERMS OF THAT PARTICULAR. OR SPECIFIC DATE AND WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT IN THE APARTMENT- I THINK IT’S A IT IS- UNLIKELY THAT THEY’LL BE ANY ADDITIONAL- PROSECUTIONS THAT COME FROM THAT EVENT ITSELF ATTORNEY GENERAL- SO CAN YOU. CAN YOU GO TO THE CONFUSION OVER THE FATAL SHOT THAT WAS FIRED- AND KIND OF WHAT THE ISSUE WAS THERE IN TERMS OF DETERMINING THAT AND THEN ALSO DID YOU PRESENT TO THE GRAND JURY WITH ANY CHARGES AGAINST- MATTINGLY IN CALLS FOR WELL SO AS TO YOUR FIRST WHAT I THINK YOU U. S. YOU ASK THE WAS IN ORDER TO FATALLY SHOT YES THE OTHER THE REPORT THAT WERE TO US BY THE KENTUCKY STATE POLICE. AND THEN THE FBI’S RELATES TO BALLISTICS. SO ADDITIONALLY WE GOT THE REPORT FROM KENTUCKY STATE POLICE AND IT WAS INCONCLUSIVE- ABOUT MAKING A DETERMINATION INTO THAT FATAL SHOT. AND SO AGAIN WITH THE- RELATIONSHIPS THAT WE HAVE- WITH OUR FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY NAMELY THE FBI I THOUGHT IT IMPERATIVE- THAT WE UTILIZE THAT RESOURCE AND SO THEY UNDERTOOK AN INDEPENDENT ANALYSIS AND IN REVIEW OF- AND CONDUCTED- OR PROVIDED A BALLISTICS REPORT. THERE IS NOTHING THAT THIS TEAM WAS ABLE TO- GLEAN SUGGESTING THAT THERE WAS AN OBJECTIVE REASONS FOR WHY F. B. I. WAS ABLE TO CONCLUSIVELY YOUR DEFINITIVELY STATE. THAT MR COSGROVE FIRED THE FATAL SHOT- BOTH AGAIN K S. P. THEIR LAB WELL REGARDED WELL RESPECTED FBI EQUALLY REGARDED AND RESPECTED- THAT

SAID IT CERTAINLY CREATES SOME ISSUE- IN TERMS OF- PROVIDING THAT INFORMATION TO THE GRAND JURY IN IN PROVIDING THAT ANY SUBSEQUENT- OF PROSECUTION AND SO. IT WAS IT FROM OUR JUDGMENT OF IMPORTANT TO PROVIDE BOTH OF THOSE TO THE GRAND JURY AND THEN ULTIMATELY MAKE THAT LET THEM MAKE A DETERMINATION ABOUT WHAT TO DO WITH THAT INFORMATION. THEY PRESENTED WE ARE JUST FOR MATTINGLY ACROSS I’M SORRY ADDING THE CONCERT WHERE THEY PRESENTED WITH ANY CHARGES FOR MATTINGLY WELL WE I WILL SAY THAT. THEY WILL WALK THROUGH ALL THE. HOMICIDE OF AND WITH THAT IN A THE OF AND FACTS THAT WERE- PROVIDED TO THEM- THAT WE UNCOVERED IN OUR INVESTIGATION THEY MADE A DETERMINATION- THE DETECTIVE HANKINSON WAS THE ONE THAT NEEDED TO BE INDICTED HERE YES MA’AM. AFTER. FIVE THE- SEVENTH OF. YEAH THE SEVENTH. THAT. THE MANAGER. SO WHAT I WILL SAY I HAVE THERE IS A OBVIOUSLY I WANT TO GET IN THE PROCEED RELATED TO MR THAT’S A SO ON GONNA HAVE IN THE CALM ON THAT THIS TO BEHIND ME A PRESENT TO THE GRAY JURY AND- YOUR OTHER QUESTION WAS ABOUT THE RACIAL MAKEUP OF. WELL I’M BLUE AND SPEAK FOR THE IN. THE AND I HOPE THAT WAS THE QUESTION. YES MA’AM. YES MA’AM I’M SORRY YEAH AMERICA I KNOW THAT YOU THE ADDRESS HAS OBVIOUSLY TAKEN MONTHS AND IT WAS PRESENTED TO THE GRAND JURY MONDAY CAN YOU TELL US WHEN TO THE GRAND JURY ACTUALLY HOW LONG DID THEY DELIBERATED THEY BEGIN ON MONDAY OR TO BEGIN TO STAY. AND THAT WITH THIS WEEK CORRECT THE GRAND JURY WAS PRESENTED WITH THE INFORMATION TODAY- I WON’T GET INTO THE SPECIFICS OF WHEN THEY BEGAN THEIR DELIVER DELIBERATIONS- BUT I WILL SAY- THAT THEY STARTED EARLY MONDAY- IN CONCLUDED- SOMETIME- BEFORE NOON AND SO THEY HEARD EVERYTHING THEY NEEDED TO HEAR- WE DIDN’T WITHHOLD ANYTHING FROM THEM. AND I HOPE THAT SATISFIES YOUR YOUR QUESTION A GENERAL AND COULD YOU TELL ME A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THIS TASK FORCE YOU KNOW SENATE PRESIDENT STIVERS AND- REPRESENTATIVE- SCOTT ARE INTRODUCING- A WARRANT BILLS OF FOR THE NEXT LEGISLATIVE SESSION ARE THEY GOING TO BE ON THIS TASK FORCE PER CHANCE AND WILL YOU BE TAKING SOME OF THE INFORMATION FROM THE BILLS LIKE PRE FILE- TO WORK WITH ON THIS WELL I DON’T WANT TO PUT OBVIOUSLY THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE BUT- I DID MENTION- IN THE REMARKS THAT- WE ARE CERTAINLY GOING TO HAVE ELECTED- LEADERS. ON THE TASK. AND I THE SOME THE- POLICY QUESTION SINCE OF THE POWER PER. THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN PUT FORWARD AND HAVE ENTERED INTO THE PUBLIC CONVERSATION. I WILL BE A PART OF THIS TASK FORCE. BUT I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE RECOGNIZE THAT THIS TASK FORCE IS BEING ESTABLISHED NOT TO- DEMONISE ANYONE- CIDER AT ONE DEPARTMENT OR AGENCY. I THINK IT’S A HEALTHY THING FOR THE ATTORNEY GENERAL- FROM TIME TO TIME TO BE A PART OF THE CONVERSATION- WITH WITH ALL THE HUNDRED TWENTY COUNTIES I’M NOT TALKING OR SINGLE OUT ANY COUNTY SPECIFICALLY. BUT WITH ALL OF TWO HUNDRED TWENTY COUNTIES ABOUT BEST PRACTICES THAT WE CAN BE UTILIZED HAD A RECENT CONVERSATION WITH SOMEBODY THAT SAID THERE’S ALWAYS ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT. I THINK THAT’S- IMPORTANT IN ANY INDUSTRY IMPORTANT IN ANY JOB AND SO IS PART OF MY ROLE AS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL I CERTAINLY. A RECOGNIZE THEIR PART I HAVE TO PLAY IN MAKING SURE THAT ALL OF OUR SYSTEMS IN GOVERNMENT ARE IMPROVED UPON- WHETHER IT BE BECAUSE OF A PARTICULAR. A MATTER THAT OCCURRED OR BECAUSE FROM TIME TO TIME IT’S JUST THE RESPONSIBLE THING TO DO. GOOD DESERVING OF THE OFFICER AS OUR JOB YEAH DID ANY OF THE OFFICERS ASKED TO TESTIFY OR PRESENT EVIDENCE TO THE GRAND JURY AND WE’RE RUNNING OUT IN THE ALLOWED TO. WELL WHAT I SAY ON THAT IS AGAIN I DON’T WANT TO GET INTO THE SPECIFICS- BUT- TESTIMONY. HEARD BY THE GRAND JURY- OF ALL SORTS OF WITNESSES AND FOLKS AND SO AGAIN ALL

RELEVANT INFORMATION WAS PROVIDED TO THE GRAND JURY FOR THEM TO MAKE THEIR ASSESSMENT YES SIR WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE ANALYSIS OF THE PATH OF THE BULLETS. HOW WAS IT THAT KENNETH WALKER WHO FIRED THE SHOT AT INCIDENT AND SO I THINK E BE IRRESPONSIBLE AT THIS JUNCTURE- FOR THIS OFFICE- TO RELEASE ANY SORT OF FILE AGAIN BECAUSE WE HAVE THIS ONGOING PROSECUTION- AND I’M I’M NOT GOING TO COMMENT ON- AND I THINK IT I CERTAINLY SHOULDN’T BE RECOMMENDING. UP AGAIN BECAUSE OF. THE ONGOING PROSECUTION ANY SORT OF RECOMMENDATION ESTHER RELATES TO RELEASE OF THE FILE WE’RE GONNA HAVE TIME FOR TWO MORE QUESTIONS. ABOUT DANIEL OKAY ALL RIGHT WELL. YEAH. WHAT I SEARCH DON’T THINK OF WHETHER IT’S THE GRAY JURY OR ARE OUR RESPONSIBILITY IS THE INVESTIGATORS OR PROSECUTORS IT’S TO FIND THE TRUTH AND SO- WHEN FOLKS FROM OUTSIDE OF THE COMMONWEALTH. GESTURE OR MAKE THEIR PREFERENCES ARE THEIR OPINIONS KNOWN SHOULD HAVE NO BEARING ON OUR ROLE AS PROSECUTOR- AND HIS INVESTIGATOR IN FACT FINDER. OR EVEN EVEN WITH FOLKS WITHIN THE COMMONWEALTH AGAIN THIS IS A TRAGEDY I DON’T WANT TO. LOSE SIGHT OF THAT- BUT WE DO HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY- TO LOOK AT THE FACTS AS THEY ARE- AND WE CAN’T BE IN THE BUSINESS. I DON’T THINK WE WANT A JUSTICE SYSTEM- THAT IS IN THE BUSINESS OF FASHIONING FACTS ARE LOST TO A PARTICULAR NARRATIVE WE HAVE TO BE IN THE BUSINESS. OF PRESENTING THE INFORMATION TO THE GRAND JURY AND ALTERNATELY ALLOWING THEM TO MAKE A DECISION ABOUT WHAT TO DO SUBSEQUENTLY LAST QUESTION YES MA’AM FAR IN THE BACK I APOLOGIZE.

US. YEAH THE- FAMILY JUST MY DAD USED TO HAVE EXPRESSION EVERYBODY’S ENTITLED TO BE TREATED WITH DIGNITY THE NEC JOE YOUR JOB IS ABOUT A LOT MORE THAN A PAYCHECK IT’S ABOUT YOUR DIGNITY IT’S ABOUT RESPECT IT’S ABOUT YOUR PLACE THE COMMUNITY IT’S ABOUT BEING ABLE HOLD YOUR HEAD UP BY BEING ABLE TO LOOK YOU CAN THE UNITED SAY HONEY I’M IS GONNA BE OKAY. FOR TOO MANY PEOPLE PARTICULARLY AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY THEY CAN’T SAY THAT THAT’S NOT ABLE TO BE DONE SO ONE OF THE THINGS I WANT TO TALK WITH YOU ABOUT TODAY IS HOW DO WE BUILD WEALTH BECAUSE ULTIMATELY ULTIMATELY THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY ONLY IS GOING TO HAVE HIS PLACE EQUAL TO EVERYONE ELSE WHEN THEY’RE IN A POSITION TO BE ABLE TO BUILD WEALTH. BABEL OF BILL WEALTH AND THAT GOES FOR

EVERYTHING FROM ACCESS TO BE ABLE TO PURCHASE A HOME ACCESS TO JOBS ACCESS TO JUST BEING ABLE TO HAVE AN EVEN SHOT AND THAT’S WHAT I HOPE WE’RE GONNA TALK ABOUT TODAY AND IT GOES TO EDUCATION AS WELL AS ACCESS TO EDUCATION ACCESS BEYOND NOW EVERYTHING FROM A LOT OF POOR WHITES AND AFRICAN AMERICAN FORM AFRICAN AMERICANS AND HISPANICS LIVE IN TITLE ONE DISTRICT MEANING THAT THEY LIVE IN SCHOOL. DISTRICTS THAT HAVE VERY LOW TAX BASE AND RIGHT NOW WE SPEND FIFTEEN DOLLARS A YEAR TO COMPENSATE FOR THAT LOW TAX BASE I AGREE SAID THE FORTY FIVE BILLION DOLLARS BUT IT DOES IT KEEP TEACHERS IN SCHOOLS BECAUSE WE’RE SHORT TEACHERS SIGNIFICANTLY HUNDRED TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND TEACHERS SHORT RIGHT NOW BE OVER HALF A MILLION BY TWENTY TWENTY THREE IN ADDITION TO THAT WE FIND OURSELVES IN A CIRCUMSTANCE WHERE WE USED TO HAVE IN OUR SCHOOLS IN THE OLD DAYS USED TO HAVE ONE. RIGHT RIGHT NOW WE DON’T HAVE ANY SWEEP FIRST SAID NO SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS IN OUR SCHOOLS ANSWER TEACHERS COME INTO SCHOOL AND EXPECT TO THE SOLVE EVERY PROBLEM WELL THERE IS ONE SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST FOR EVERY ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED SEVEN KIDS IN SCHOOL SHOULD BE CLOSER TO ONE TO FIVE HUNDRED WE CAN DO THAT BY INCREASING THE MONEY I JUST TALKED ABOUT FROM FIFTEEN TO FORTY FIVE AND SEND EVERY SINGLE CHILD IS THREE YEARS OLD FOUR YEARS OLD FIVE YEARS OLD NOT TO DAY CARE BUT THE SCHOOL. ALL THIS. OF THE GREAT. IN THE STATE EVERY OTHER POINTED OUT LAST YEARS THAT’LL INCREASE BY 58% THE CHANCE OF GOING ALL THE WAY THROUGH SCHOOL NO MATTER WHAT ZIP CODE THEY COME FROM. NO MATTER WHERE THEY ARE. AND BE ABLE TO DO IT WITHOUT GET THEMSELVES IN TROUBLE WHICH I’M- TAKE ANY QUESTIONS JOB. HI GUYS GET AWAY. SO FAR FROM A STARTED PROJECT- MY FIRST QUESTION YOU SORT OF SPOKE ABOUT EDUCATION AND FOR ME- I’M THE ONLY PERSON IN MY FAMILY TO GO TO H. AND H B. C. U. N. EVE RIGHT DOWN THE STREET FROM JOHNSON C. SMITH NORTH CAROLINA IS KNOWN FOR HAVING A LOT OF H. B. C. USE SO MY QUESTION WOULD BE AS A LOT AS NOT PROPERLY FUNDING SORT OF GOING UNDER SO WHAT WOULD YOU SORT OF LIKE TO SEE- WHAT DID YOU DO FOR THE HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES. WELL I WAS I WISH YOU CAN CHRIS INSIDE US AND AS LONG AS I CAN SAY WITH THE BEST H. B. C. U. AS IN AMERICA DELAWARE STATE UNIVERSITY BUT THAT’S ANOTHER ISSUE THAT’S A JOKE BUT- IT’S NOT A JOKE THERE GREAT THAT’S HOW I GOT MY START BY THE WAY I WOULD UNIVERSITY DOLLAR BUT THE REASON I GOT INVOLVED IN POLITICS IN THE FIRST PLACE IS BECAUSE OF WHAT WAS GOING ON IN MY STATE. IN TERMS OF SEGREGATION IN TERMS OF DOCTOR KING BEING ASSASSINATED PART OF THE MAJOR PART OF OUR CITY WAS BURNED TO THE GROUND THAT’S HOW I GOT ENGAGED INTO AND A LOT OF MY FOR CAME OUT OF. THAT H. B. C U. LOOK. RIGHT NOW ONE ONE THING ALL THE DATA SHOWS. IS THAT GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY NICKEL OPPORTUNITY THERE’S NOT A SINGLE THING THAT AFRICAN

AMERICAN CAN’T DO THAT AWAIT AMERICAN CAN DO THAT A HISPANIC AMERICAN AND ASIAN AMERICAN I MEAN NOT A SINGLE THING. AND SO WHAT’S HAPPENED IT’S ABOUT ACCESS TO OPPORTUNITY AND ACCESS TO GOOD JOBS. NOW ON ALL FLOOD UNIVERSITIES LIKE GREAT UNIVERSITY LIKE UNIVERSITY U N. C. OR WAKE FOREST A LOT OF SCHOOLS. THEY HAVE ENDOWMENTS AND IN DOMINO ALLOWS THEM TO PROVIDE FOR THE CIRCUMSTANCE TO BID FOR THESE MAJOR FEDERAL INITIATIVES THAT ALLOW THEM TO BRING INTO THE SCHOOL. A TECHNOLOGY AND I OR A PROGRAM THAT IS ABLE TO BRING IN OUTSIDE OUR SPONSORS AS WELL AS GOVERNMENT SPONSORS AND THEN HAVE STUDENTS WORK IN THOSE AREAS FOR EXAMPLE CYBER SECURITY. CYBER SECURITY IS A BIG DEAL BUT YOU HAVE TO AND AS THE FUTURE IS GOING TO BE MILLIONS OF OVERTIME GOOD PAYING JOBS IN THEIR CYBER SECURITY. BUT BECAUSE THE H. B C. USE FOR EXAMPLE MOST OF THEM DON’T HAVE THE ECONOMIC THEY DON’T HAVE THE INDICTMENT TO BE ABLE TO BUILD THE FACILITIES THAT WILL CAN ATTRACT THE INVITED THE ENVIRONMENT. THE GOVERNMENT FUNDED AS WELL AS PRIVATE DOWN THEY DON’T GET TO SET THESE UP. SO FOR EXAMPLE I WAS VICE PRESIDENT WE WENT DOWN TO ROANOKE- WE PROVIDED FUNDING FOR AN H. B. C. U. TO HAVE A CYBER SECURITY PROPOSAL. THEY DID IT THEY GOT THE CONTRACT AND NOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING OR TRAINING YOUNG WOMEN AND MEN WHO GET OUT AND GOOD STARTING JOBS JOBS WHERE YOU CAN END UP BEING PAID MORE THAN A HUNDRED GRAND A YEAR. THAT AND THEY’RE FULLY TOTALLY THOROUGHLY CAPABLE SO WHAT I’VE DONE. IS I PROPOSED AND WE’LL GET THIS DONE. I PROPOSED A TEN YEAR PROGRAM FOR SEVENTY BILLION DOLLARS FOR HBCU USE. SEVENTY BILLION DOLLARS THAT SEVENTY BILLION DOLLARS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO THE H. P. USUALLY H. B. C. USE. BASED ON THEIR COMPETITION TO GET ACCESS TO IT BUT EVERYONE WILL QUALIFY EVERY HBCU AND THEY’LL BE ABLE TO DO THE KINDS OF THINGS THAT OTHER UNIVERSITIES TO FOR EXAMPLE DOLLARS STATE UNIVERSITIES A GREAT UNIVERSITY THE PRESIDENT VERSUS A YOUNG MAN HE USED TO WORK FOR ME AND MY SIS AT OFFICE NOW BRILLIANT GUYS DOCTORATE. THE END RESULT OF IT IS THOUGH WHEN THE UNIVERSITY DELAWARE MAKES AN APPLICATION FOR DEALING WITH SOLAR ENERGY- BECAUSE IT HAS A IT HAS A SIGNIFICANT BASE. IT GETS SEE SIGNIFICANT AND IT PROJECTION OF TECHNOLOGICAL CAPABILITY OR FOR EXAMPLE LIGHT METALS THEY’RE THEY’RE THEY HAVE A TOOK OVER AN OLD FACILITY ISSUES BEFORE TO SOLD A LONG LONG TIME AGO. THEY TOOK OVER FACILITIES TO BE A CHRYSLER FACILITY GOT SHUT DOWN IN. OUR THEY HAVE AT THE FACILITY THAT HAVE PEOPLE AND NOT FACILITY WHO ARE NOW. DOING THE REAL TO MAY LIGHT WEIGHT ALUMINUM. AND METAL DECKS FOR AIRCRAFT CARRIERS WHAT’S A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR AND WILL UNDERPIN A BILLION DOLLAR PROJECTS. AND SO THE PEOPLE WHO GET TO WORK ON THAT THE VERY. STUDENTS IN THAT UNIVERSE YOU GET TO WORK AND THEY’RE THE ONES ARE GONNA GO OUT AND GET THESE GREAT JOBS SO THAT’S THE FIRST THING I’M GOING TO DO FOR H. B. C. USE SECONDLY. WE HAVE TO LOOK AT AND WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT THE IDEA THAT WE HAVE TO BRING IN. H. B. C. USE TO ENGAGE IN MORE OF WHAT WE ARE DOING IN TERMS OF OUR- NATIONAL DIALOGUE. AND FOR EXAMPLE I- YOU KNOW I ALLY I KID. SUIT TO THE GUYS THAT ARE AND I ADMIRE CO SPONSORS MY CAMPAIGN AFRICAN AMERICANS A TALKING THOUSAND MORGAN MAN MORGAN MATH. WELL YOU KNOW THERE’S A LOT OF GREAT UNIVERSITIES INCLUDING RIGHT HERE. BUT WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE FOR YOU’RE ABLE TO GET TO THOSE UNIVERSITIES HOW CAN YOU DO IT WELL I’M GONNA SEE TO IT THAT ANY FAMILY. ANYONE WHO COMES FROM A FAMILY THAT MAKES A TOTAL INCOME OF LESS THAN A HUNDRED TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS AND TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS YEAR GETS FREE COLLEGE EDUCATION. LET’S NOT THEY DON’T GET IN. IF THEY GET IN AND QUALIFY. THEY PAY NOTHING TO GO TO COLLEGE. SECONDLY THERE ALSO PROGRAMS EXIST NOW THAT IF YOU PROVIDE FOR. THE WORK IT YOU’LL VOLUNTEER TO DO SOMETHING IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST. AND YOU DO IT FOR FIVE YEARS OR MORE YOU CAN DEDUCT FIVE. TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR UP TO FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS OFF OF THAT DEBT YOU HAVE. AND YOU HAVE AN AWFUL LOT OF YOUNG AFRICAN AMERICANS HAVE GRADUATED THE AVERAGES ABOUT NINETY THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR. WAS HARD AS HELL TO GET STARTED. HARDY START WE HAVE THAT DEBT HANGING OVER YOUR HEAD. THE AVERAGE DEBT IS EVEN HIRES UP TO TWENTY EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR SOMEONE GRADUATING FROM. FOUR YEAR SCHOOL. AND THAT’S WHY THE ECONOMIST PREDICTED PRIOR. AND WITH THIS AND TELL ME TO MY BUT- THE- HABITAT FOR DEPRESSION THIS. WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT IF IT IS REPORT OUT BEFORE THE COVERT CRISIS. THAT WE’RE GONNA HAVE AN ECONOMIC SLOWDOWN BECAUSE THE ENTIRE GENERATION THIS FROM NINE ELEVEN GENERATION THROUGH THE

GENERATION NOW. AND COMING OUT OF THIS- THIS GOD AWFUL CIRCUMSTANCE RAND. THEY IN FACT ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE THE WHERE WITH ALL BECAUSE OF STUDENT DEBT. TO BE ABLE TO BORROW THE MONEY TO. BUY A HOME. BUY A NEW VEHICLE BUYER FAR YOU SPEND THE MONEY CAPITAL WE’RE SURE WE’RE- SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF OUR ECONOMY IS DRIVEN BY CONSUMPTION. BYE BYE BYE CONSUMPTION. IN THIS GENERATION THE THIS WHOLE NEW GENERATION FROM NINE ELEVEN ON. THAT IN FACT IS- THEY’RE THEY’RE NOT IN A POSITION TO BE ABLE TO DO IT SO THE WHOLE LOT OF REASONS THAT ECONOMIC THIS WILL BENEFIT THIS IS JUST DRAINING MONEY. BY THE WAY I PAY FOR EVERY ONE OF THESE THINGS. BY THE WAY I DEAL WITH THE TAX STRUCTURE BUT THAT’S ANOTHER STORY. SO THERE THAT’S A PIECE OF WHAT I THINK WE CAN AND SHOULD BE DOING WITH THE WITH H. B. C. USE AND SECONDLY. I WILL IN MY ADMINISTRATION ELEVATE. ELEVATE THE STANDARD OF H. B. C. USE BY THE PEOPLE IN MY ADMINISTRATION AS WELL PRESIDENT I’M- THE VICE PRESIDENT WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU SO I’D LIKE TO RECOGNIZE. SOMEONE THAT MIGHT HAVE A QUESTION IN THIS FOR THIS FORM. YES. THERE’S A MICROPHONE THE MICROPHONE RIGHT THERE AND THERE’S ONE ON THE SIDE AS WELL SO HE OKAY HI AMANDA BONAPARTE- I JUST WAS LIKE I’M WONDERING WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO ABOUT MINIMUM WAGE GONNA RAISE THE FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR. NATIONALLY I’VE BEEN DEEPLY INVOLVED AND RAISE IT AS I’VE GONE AROUND THE COUNTRY WORKING WITH CITIES AND COUNTIES THAT IN FACT IT RAISED AN INCLUDING NEW YORK CITY AND HOW TO OF THE WEST COAST AS WELL. HERE’S THE DEAL. IF YOU MAKE LESS THAN FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR WORKING FORTY HOURS A WEEK YOU’RE MAKING. A WAGE UNDER THE POVERTY LEVEL. NO ONE IN AMERICA. SHOULD BE WORKING FOR. A FOR A FORTY HOUR WEEK JOB AND STILL BE LIVING IN POVERTY. IT SHOULD NOT EXIST NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO IT ALSO DEMONSTRATES THAT IF WE PAY PEOPLE FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR MINIMUM WAGE. YOU GROW THE ECONOMY. THE IDEA THIS IS SOMEHOW PUTS PEOPLE OF BUSINESS AS NO EVIDENCE OF THAT. WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU HAVE PEOPLE YOU’RE MAKING FIFTEEN BUCKS AN HOUR TO THE SEVEN DOLLARS AN HOUR YOU’RE ABLE TO BUY MORE THINGS YOU’RE ABLE TO PAY MORE BILLS YOU’RE ABLE TO DO MORE THAT ENTERTAINING ENDS UP INCREASING THE GDP THE GROWTH OF THE WHOLE ECONOMY. SO IT’S NOT ONLY A GOOD THING FOR THE PERSON WHO IS GOING TO BE MAKING. DECENT WAGES FOR THIS FROM THE BEGINNING. BUT GOING TO BE GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY AS A WHOLE. NEXT QUESTION YES PLEASE HI I AM ANDREA BROWN- THE SECOND GRADE TEACHER NICE TO MEET YOU MOSAIC GOD LOVE YOU THERE. IT’S BEEN DIFFICULT OF IT THANK YOU- SO THANK YOU CHRIS FOR BRINGING OF EDUCATION IN THE H. B. C. USE BUT AS FAR AS K. THROUGH TWELVE EDUCATION HOW DO YOU PLAN TO PUSH- ACCESS EDUCATIONAL EQUITY. AS A SIMPLE PROPOSITION FOR ME. OKAY EXAGGERATE IS SECOND GRADE SCHOOL TEACHER WHY YOU’RE SO IMPORTANT IF I HAD ONLY ONE DOLLAR TO SPEND IN EDUCATION MY CAN SPEND POST GRADUATION OR PRE KINDERGARTEN I SPENT A PRE KINDERGARTEN NOT A JOKE BECAUSE YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I DO BASED ON YOUR EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND THAT 60% OF A CHILD’S BRAIN IS CAN IS ALREADY DEVELOPED BY THE TIME THEY’RE IN THERE THREE FOUR FIVE YEARS OLD. AND SO WHAT HAPPENS IS PEOPLE START OFF BASED ON THE ZIP CODE AND THEIR FAMILY BACK ON THE MAY START OF WAY BEHIND THE CURVE YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A LOT OF STUDENTS WHO THEY COME INTO SCHOOL IF THEY COME FROM A VERY POOR BACKGROUND IN A COMMUNITY RAISED BY A SINGLE MOM OR SINGLE DAD THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN. THERE WILL HAVE PROBABLY HEARD ONE MILLION FEWER WORDS SPOKEN BY THE TIME THEY GET TO FIRST GRADE. THAT BIAS IS AN IMPEDIMENT NOBODY’S FORCE THAT ON ANYBODY WE GOT TO CHANGE. AND SO THE WAY TO CHANGES THREE FULL. NUMBER ONE AS I SAID. PROVIDE FOR EARLY EDUCATION STARTED THREE YEARS OF AGE. AND IT’S NOT THERE THIS IS THIS A SINGLE MY LORD WHY WE HAVE A THREE YEAR OLD GO TO SCHOOL. THEY LEARN AS RAPIDLY AS A SECURE OLD TWELVE YEAR OLD A FOURTEEN YEAR OLD. AND THEY JUST SUCK IT ALL UP. THEY JUST SUCK IT ALL UP NUMBER ONE NUMBER TWO. TO MAKE SURE THAT WE PAY TEACHER. ENOUGH MONEY TO STAY IN THE BUSINESS OF TEACHING. MY WIFE’S A FULL TIME TEACHER. MY WIFE HAS NEVER STOPPED AS FIRST LADY AS A SECOND LADY I SHOULD SAY SHE TAUGHT. FIFTEEN CREDITS. EVERY SEMESTER. AT A COMMUNITY COLLEGE
