This is the Russ castle show powered and charge my batteries specialists -- just gets crazier and crazier but hate. Let's go let's do it for Friday. -- advantage talk line numbers in case you've forgotten overnight. Which I seriously doubt that all doom again I agree don't -- 329673. That's true three true WORD. Spartanburg. 5749673. Or 574 WORD. WORD text line for you text stirs his 71307. And then of course. We have -- email. And for those who use email. It's Ross had entercom.com. Ross. When I was listening to this big news yesterday afternoon coming out of a liberal news agency that one of my employees was listening to. You would think that an -- It was a mentally disturbed 34 year old black. -- from blue state Connecticut who tried to crash the White House gates. With her small child in the car. Probably mad about obamacare and the NSA. As she was feeling she was being stalked. 180 degrees out of -- Ross. Guns and shots. By the attacker were mentioned but not the fact that the purpose was a black female. It's worse than problems. This is -- North Korean journalists may get a -- go nonsense. That comes from Andy. I have to admit. When that -- I got a call. I was coming out of a business meeting and I got a call from my baby daughter who works in DC literally. Right across the street from the capital. And she's heard for me enough so she knew. What I answered the phone she said dad I'm okay. Which was fantastic. You always -- to get that kind of call. But. Should she told me that I've. Found out about everything that was going nautical Bob -- to make sure that he was aware of it and he was it was literally eight minutes after an -- gone down. And I started thinking about this wondering where it wasn't gonna go. And I was fully expect a huge huge hope they teach what you were thinking what were your fully expecting. Harry Reid to call a press conference. And immediately blame. The Tea Party and Marcus the it -- it if -- Arab Harry Reid would've said it probably was somebody related to Ted Cruz. Com. Blaming the Republicans. You know this is what happens when you have a quote quote government shutdown which as I bit and explain to all weeklong is alive and I -- shut down did you see how many cops showed up. Only Carol. I mean my daughter -- There's a guy and cargo shores did you notice that guy who to a lot of why would be no mistake I -- -- -- -- right in the middle would -- when -- -- -- car make sure cargo short over there and show you where you Greg Carter was undercover what was going on I mean if he's -- -- much coach has been shown in all morning and end and he discussed in the middle -- think you the one who noticed. You are turning your main card if it did you of the one day I was wondering if he is an undercover cop I wasn't not much covered dust -- wondering why he was there an -- We gotta get an okay they don't know I'm so the other thing I was -- is our boy won't be long. Before somebody's gonna blame the cops. They I was watching Neil -- and had that one video which was amazing. Which showed this woman India. I think they said she was driving an Infiniti. And she's their total at though White House Gator whatever she's totally surrounded by the cops. And man she'd she flipped that thing in reverse spends around. They're jumping out of way other way because they think they're gonna get run over. They had told her repeatedly. You know get out of the car and boy bogey bogey she goes and she spent around one down though. Pennsylvania Avenue and around and around the concentration -- that she winds up. A few blocks away. In front of the capitol. Where they they shooter and killer and I kept thinking. How long is it going to be before we hear the term excessive force. I'm surprised I hadn't gotten a text already. All these police did they really have to shooter. When they blame video games -- I mean. Well it's coming. There's -- ETA just came out maybe she'd been playing that and you know that's how she knew how to drive like that police I don't take a long to say it wasn't terrorist related -- say boy I Shasta and as far as we know. But I'm. -- -- it turns out she's a Connecticut. Dental hygienist. When -- history of mental illness. I know the lives of things so why they had to killer. 34. 34 year old. Miriam carry. Killed by law enforcement. After she ran to the White House barricades. Refused their orders took off had a toddler in the car with her. New York Post sources say Miriam -- who formerly lived in Brooklyn was licensed to practice in new York and Connecticut. And had a permit to work as a hygienist in the Connecticut prisons. At least a dozen gunshots fired. They. They -- heard two blocks from the capitol. Don't have the autopsy yet she's believed to have been hit several times a well. Think it. A child to believed the troubling to via the little girl according to the New York Post. Anywhere from two to three years old on hurt. In the back of the Infiniti. Which had Connecticut license plates authorities had no immediate explanation. Of the motive. But Columbus capitol police chief -- Kim dine told reporters there was no reason to believe it was an act of terrorism. Or anything other than an isolated incident -- -- have isolated terrorism. ABC news said the 34 year old woman had a history of mental health issues. Or did an amazing how quickly they find these things out I thought that stuff was private anyway a task force of FBI and Secret Service agents. Executing a search warrant for her home according to CNN. So. Thank goodness. Thank god. That that little child. Into them Mason was -- but going on that the child. Was on harmed. Washington Post identified her as the woman's one year old daughter. Her sister Amy Kerry who was immersed in Brooklyn. Was incredulous when she reached was reached Thursday afternoon and told -- what it happened. Quote that's impossible she works she holes a job. She confirmed that her sister. Drove that car she said -- knew of nothing. That would have even brought her sister to Washington DC. Quote she wouldn't be in DC she was just in Connecticut two days ago. I spoke to were I don't know what's happening I can't answer anymore. And of course it was predictable on Capitol Hill Sheila and Jackson Lee had to blame this. On the government shutdown. Here's the thing -- I think the cops did the right thing I did that I think they did the only thing they could've done what about you. Especially when you watch the video. Are usually the way the argument goes from the other side is lost they were totally surrounding heard why do they have to fire. That's usually -- this argument goes. But when you watch the video. Yeah they were standing around her she was still in the car the car was revved up she was she was back in up and she she was. Trying to run over him I -- at least two. That had to jump out of the way. Oh -- the one copy injured but it wasn't related really bet he was. The last report I soul. Is. On the way it on the capitol end of this Capitol Hill end of this. You have hit a barricade and and was harmed not seriously by the -- back was the last thing I heard. But -- of course the cops did the right thing. How how was she supposed to treat something like -- Intercourse before we get to a somebody bring them. Could it be that this woman. Was trying to commit suicide by cop. And to me of some sort like the Andrea Yates story because now it's been all over the media that she might have been suffering from postpartum. Listen all my life I've been surrounded by women and I I know a little bit about postpartum. I I am so tired of postpartum. Being blamed Andrea Yates drowned her own kids. In the bathtub. She drowned them one by one bald Brothers and sisters were watching and and pretty much I think don't recent -- to recent shooting get the death penalty was because say she's a woman in gender does play a factor like it or not. Cause -- to change my position on the death penalty after have -- in South Carolina with Susan spent an eighth. You know the we get back this whole thing of trying to blame some kind of middle problem. When things like this happen why does that matter nobody's ever been able to explain to me why does that matter you knew what you do why does it matter. If you're mentally ill. Can anybody explain it to me. But I think what what happened yesterday. After reviewing the video and reading all about it and everything I think justice was done what about you. Let's talk to Robert on a cell phone -- The ball and then I spent answers to your question -- eight guard. What question are there others out there these general public utilities sector are the very all of the above all Obama all of our videos and every TV station -- goes down. And I think that answers that question you would probably just tired they -- here in the hole below analysts' one. The second question and answer your question there and I had about three or four months ago. Why the government are probably trial demand initiated by the millions or else. Well if you're like should we are both resulted in any British I bet they're terrible shots. I think they're small but they're terrible chocolates. I think -- -- if you ever tried to hit a moving target Robert. Well and I assure that they -- a -- connection to and that they had no -- armor and I got a -- briefly. I -- -- into the flow ratio would never would have to corral the wanted -- I don't know. I know that you know. If you give me here at home here although they already gbagbo targets fell apart. Whatever what it is so we keep it up with wind is too many rounds. Well how would you define too many rounds if the person's still driving the car. And still trying to get away how do you define too many rounds. I. I'm actually in the last two years silly feature different vehicles shot at by our. And he stayed officer and -- almost parallel don't want that Roethlisberger Reynolds and vote for the drivers were shot and killed. Yeah some people are better at than others yeah what are -- I don't I don't it's not a pretty good shot I'm not as good as I used to be much with that if I want my daughters is better shot than me now but she's a lot younger. But so there are better so you think how rounds would it take you Robert. We if you were in that situation in the pressure that situation and you got a moving car how many -- you'd think it would take you. Absolutely -- Three. Greenbacks if certain have you been trained. Yes sir. Ex military. Yes sir good -- bad. Through our trial yeah they would have that would block legitimately -- really dark three. Eat it mention too many. Got to go Robert thank you eleven local updates I made nineteen. It's sirens blaring witnesses clear and unmistakable sound. And you know thirty seconds -- so there were cop cars swat teams. -- armored. Vehicles they were coming from all over the place. Across the capitol police radios and getting shots were fired ordering a lockdown of the complex. The first thing I heard. If you go off the alert Florida Republican -- raid elements so many lawmakers in Capitol Hill staff told the shelter in place for nearly an hour. With the house and senate return this session with recognition and applause for the capitol police force. -- Capitol Hill Jared Halpern Fox News radio operating 26. -- Alonso is gonna panic here so let me do this again. How many -- -- you probably -- bus around 66. Okay folks folks. Really let me let me even stoop to begging -- It -- -- it could be liberals just trying to bug. No I don't think so I think don't think their legitimate questions which I will not -- navy yet let's be clear here. Folks I know you don't know what happens on the side of the radio but let's be clear here. -- advantage talk clients are only four people who want to talk on the air. Alonso I don't -- doesn't he's doing like five or six different things. And so his job one of the one of his jobs. Used when you call is to ask your name. And what you wanna talk about. That's it. There's no time for him to converse with you there's he he is in a different room. He cannot pass things on to me in the middle of a talk -- so again I thought we were clear on this. Only called these numbers if you are ready and prepared. That can talk on the mayor. Okay. Otherwise. Don't get -- Alonso when he just hangs up on because that's what he's been instructed to do to do his job. That's what he's been instructed to do don't mean to be mean about this -- about this but we've been conveying this message for a long time now. So. Place. The Eagles advantage talk line numbers nor. Only for folks who wanna go on the air. -- is 2329673. Spartanburg 5749673. Now. If you want ask your question or say something use the -- line. W award he text line is 71307. Now -- on he understood the instructions welcome -- Good morning yes. Well why are how will show wondered about the situation in lotion do and you know how -- on armed black person. Surely didn't further lower our. Rundown by the pleased you shot don't you mean. Yeah cool word out of -- over Al Sharpton no hit contrary from the black parent -- want all the -- First of -- let's get the facts straight. They didn't know and had no way of knowing that she was on our. There's no way to tell that when somebody's in a car trying to ram through a gate. They. Repeatedly. Ask her to stop. And to get out of the vehicle she chose to flee from the police the police did the only thing really they could've done. -- Jackson and Sharpton it's early it's early just just given to launch. So are OK I know there's Warner -- strikes and they're not only today that order I was so your mood. But what are you knew my do you -- what country you're going to be New -- Pray that rarely throw her from what I'm noticing. The news media has quickly dropped the story this morning there's a lot of talk about. But it was the event yesterday afternoon in the news and I find that very curious to. Thank you if you will get a radio Fox News level one update coming up in one minute some of the text messages. Rush please describe to all your audience how this woman in essence was driving. And they are fifty. Rust after reporting of the DC shooting the anchor -- on CBS. Said there was another casualty in DC today Obama's trip to Asia was canceled -- How -- wanna -- coast speaker Cruz and future president keep it up. Ross they kill that little baby's mama couldn't they just stopped for no pay for the police they crazy. Russia and a Jackson Lee said that the lady in DC did it because of the government shutdown or she is Sheila Jackson Lee. Alonso bicycle -- better cargo shorts been Speedo. -- wonder why they didn't just shoot up the tires. -- where Al and Jesse on this for African Arab American mother with child brutally gunned down by racially profiling police. For getting lost in DC. -- are more coming up. The latest from talks right now on news radio W or. Howard and charge my batteries specialists happy Friday it's 836 now 24 that we'll have 9 o'clock news radio WORD. -- advantage chalk lines again only for people who want to talk on the air. We have one available Greeneville is 2329673. Spartanburg 5749673. Then the WORD text line number is 71307. All the events in Washington where a 34 year old dental hygienist from Connecticut who is dead. She tried to crash in the barricade at the White House she repeatedly refused orders to stopping get out of the car she takes off. She winds -- down near Capitol Hill and she is shot and killed by police all the while a young baby girl. Is in the backseat of the black Infiniti. So of course it sets up the discussion. Where the police. Using excessive force. They're the police do what they were supposed to do are are they just bloodthirsty Nazis. Some of the responses. -- what what are the rules of engagement wanna try I was in the car. Had they shot the child who is to blame how were they supposed to know that there was a child in that call. They were stunned when they found a child in the car. It it if the child had been injured or god forbid killed it is the monster's ball. -- don't worry they already have a file on you that says you have mental illness issues -- just in case LO well. Yeah this woman supposedly suffering from. Sometimes a little problem I mean I would think that would be obvious -- a bunch of Yahoo!'s killing crazy woman they're such big heroes aren't today. And so brave I think they're a bunch of -- holes. I knew that was coming -- they had no choice anyone who thinks otherwise is simply ignorant I agree with that Ross I think. Maybe the baby is Obama's and she was trying to force him to take responsibility. -- maybe she want to see Obama about her Obama phone being cut off. Russ I agree exactly the thing you said how -- did they know she had mental illness so quickly. It doesn't sound right. Did they already have a file on her well what -- -- say -- area of a file on all of us but yes the mother. Shared some of that information. With the authorities. -- they had every opportunity at the beginning at close range but refrained it appeared to me they -- for every chance to comply. Then this what -- fascist Ross. Since I don't like living in a Nazi totalitarian. Police state I never consider police lanes as some justice. Really. What do they were to stop somebody who's trying to kill you or somebody in your family somebody you love and care about if you everybody. That wouldn't be justice. Are those of you -- stand by stay tuned we've got to get another update and it's 839. Okay forty talked to Peyton hi patent. They were asked hey how are you today thanks. We -- you brought me out. On the air what your comment about what does mental illness matter. And I I'd like to have a second debate with Cuba before I just like to say. Based on a video aren't I don't I didn't see what else the cops could have done yesterday. We elect you know I actually help -- officers now in crisis intervention -- yeah. I would do -- mentally ill and you know based on what I saw I don't I don't pulpit officers. But when you say. What -- mental illness matter I don't understand how you can say that. Okay let me explain. You know murder is murder why are we obsessed with knowing why somebody did something. It interferes in the end up what I think is the whole concept of justice. In other words is werder is murder somehow. Less murder if somebody happens to be suffering from mental health issues I don't think so. Well and order a medical problem causes somebody to get into most of -- frame where they believe that people are they're trying to kill him. That there is -- against the world. That. It actually bid you know almost causes that initially the quiet part of it. Are a hundred suicide today for mentally ill people kill them so Austin and you're saying what doesn't matter it's an epidemic of -- At the moment that the net a -- is still suicide. Why does it -- I'm in what is it matters so it wouldn't it does it -- a -- we would try to put it gets the root of the problem. Just all -- -- and how is that working downforce. Will it take you just give up -- no I don't know ignorance I'm not saying dad let's. And I'm all for helping people whatever they're dealing with the when he gets to the point to where they go out and commit murder. I'm saying why should that have any bearing on what we decide to do with them. Why should it be no way we can spend the rest of eternity trying to figure out the cause of things we know the cause of things the cost of things. Like this or is evil and there is no treatment for evil except salvation. -- let me ask you this is a medical problem caused the seizure and somebody kills somebody on the road. Having their first seizure this afternoon you don't think we should treat that person any different because of medical problems caused adapts. It's an excellent point. I -- maybe. Maybe in that case if it can be absolutely proven. The facts of the case. So when you we talk about mental illness and you say conclusively that we know. That certain types of mental illness caused people to do things I'm not willing to buy that 100%. How do you ever know what's going on in somebody's brain in somebody's life. I think we look for excuses. Because people tend to be too you know it they think their compassionate and I think they're not really being compassionate I think they're being. Delusional in a lot of ways. It's it's a it's a difficult. Which you would your -- walking through our. -- know would you concede this point that we've seen numerous. Cases now where people conveniently. Used the whole concept of mental illness to try to get out of the ultimate punishment. Absolutely and it and it and it and it and it just is people like me off because you know I had a legitimate mental illness that you know I've I've recovered from. And it and we never wanted to see somebody. Get an exception to use mental illness is a crutch to try to get out or something but when there's a legitimate. Mental illness that causes. -- behavioral issue that person needs to have a little more understanding for under the law that's why we have a mental health or ingrained. I don't know if you even realized. I didn't and I would say why do week the person is still dead the family's gonna still grieve. That person has been deprived of their life I think we spend away way way way too much time trying to figure out why somebody did something. I really do. -- Cyrus right -- you add to the problem. Which your lack of understanding and they match. I and I think you add to the problem by an essence using the things you're dealing with as a -- Well I'd I'd like to barrel mark -- about it -- -- if we did have a conversation what difference let me quote Hillary Clinton would that make. What are -- are still going to be people who abused the diagnosis of mental illness to go out and do horrible things to people. There's still going to be people who were dealing with mental issues every day yourself included I'm assuming you've never murdered anybody. And so I'm intrigued by the fact that people like you were suffering from mental illness yet somehow some way you find a way not to go out and commit these crimes. Absolutely and that's that's what that's how do you explain that that's why I'm alive today which is to explain to people what recovery looks like what it. You know what can you honestly believe that everybody can recover absolutely absolutely and. The actual action not bad enough that it would prove you wrong. Thank you -- I have to go 849. 8555. Minutes away from 9 o'clock boy I sure hope you can stick around after 9 o'clock. It after this week there's been so much happening it it's pretty accurate I am absolutely accurate -- -- change that to say. Then when it comes to obamacare you may have. Some people kicking the tires but very few people are buying it. And the White House knows it and it's absurd Jay Carney was asked about their shares today and wait till you hear is answer. What are you lefties gonna say about this fiasco this week for Obama care. -- and a whole lot more remote. I Buford what I have to say about it there's a brilliant man named Thomas sole. And boy he has a unique way of just getting to the heart of the matter. So who's to blame for the government partial disruption. In funding. There is no question who's to blame and you just can't argue with his point of view why you and try. We'll get to that next hour to stand by stay -- finish of the hour with some phone calls Romney's in Gaffney ironic. All right god bless you thank him. But I need to do. Appreciate it how we -- here and our prayer for you a lot of. Thank you we. Only have five more radiation treatments to go. And grade and deserve my daughter my daughter. Went through the signed dying and I'm meant there a couple of captured Russia yeah and the good lord freshman. -- All in all bigger role. In Italy yes. -- Amish conservative and -- thanks -- Just. But there are probably would recommend. Anyway. All warm and another got bits and pieces. What happened there. Did the girl emerge and restore firing. Caller no it -- these. She just refused to get the corporate. Not only did she refused to get out of the car after she -- a barricade then she took off after the police had tried to stopper. And she headed from the White House down the Capitol Hill. Now I have not seen I have to honestly -- I have not seen a report and maybe there's one out there that I dismissed. Of her actually getting out of the car. -- -- We are towel and and I went through our clients. And it pure lack there's -- danger. You fire. Digital this directly and danger right here if you fire. -- -- -- night when you have idea our car coming and -- your life is in danger. Truly correct. But -- the car stopped. American car at one point now whether they were found in at that point I am not problem I don't know but to but the interesting thing at the point when the car was stopped -- the White House. She was obviously still alive I mean she was still go on the car was still moving it was backing up then it's been out of the White House. Went right down Pennsylvania Avenue and people chasing your. I mean it's a thousand wonders. She didn't run over one of the capitol police or out of bed you know a citizen walking down the street my baby daughter works right there across the street she was terrified yesterday. We're told to us. You know stay where they were and stay away from the windows and all this kind of stuff. I I I don't know what it would when you do is here's the here's the lesson. When you try to do something like that the first place. And then you refuse the order of the police and if you're in a vehicle which is the equivalent to a bullet. And you you were proving to be reckless. I think the police are justified I think they absolutely did yesterday what they had to do. Thank you -- live local -- time is 859.
