Terrible situation it happened in Alabama couple years ago and then in Chicago. Female officer was beaten very badly because she was afraid to user done. She says cheated mono open herself up her family to scrutiny exactly so basically slip this guy who was on PCP. Beat. Heck out of until other officers were able to jump in and subduing. Michigan Jamaica. That you expect its years that she's hurt the issue is heard and I just no dead in Oklahoma the tests prove that they guy that woman now offices there is facing murder charges right to guy whose car was broken down the middle of the road area well we know now he was on PCP. Under so. I don't I don't think any of this is helping the police do their job and all and I think it is endangering them and talk about. This'll clowns thing. Because. Should you be arrested adjuster. Dressing as a clown and I know it's creepy clown masks but if they're not threatened and anybody ISIS' freedom of speech issue today and the right to address however they want. Yeah and the real clowns are upset because there are getting business their businesses falling off there bookings. Oh yeah Abbott and come to my house for the kids now they're scary so that. Partly it's not happening your make a national primary net write or any series LE. I admit it was the Elway at one point in this country big floppy shoes and and nine perish make up and rubber nose that was viewed as entertaining now scary. How did it change bad dental work is that it because of the teams of the well we don't fear everybody from Britain doing. Cool weather there's rain and still common however the high temperatures and a 90%. Ninety rather with a 20% chance of showers 88 tomorrow 30% chance for rain. And I guess overnight. Early morning the cool front comes through highs Friday 76. Chance for early morning rain Saturday seventy Ford nothing but sunshine and breezy. And 78 on Saturday in nothing but on chance of that that you he has worked out perfectly major Mike Lyons joins us right now CBS military. CBS news military analyst morning major. Thanks for taking the time a couple of things where you first of all the attempts in in about by the Iraqi Army I guessed it take deck Mosul would it be accurate. The force of good and went through in the 48 hours from right now and most of the fighting on the outskirts. Which in the well the region surrounding. Mosul where there is crisis forces but they've gone to them. Pretty easily they've been limited defenses suicide bombs in the like you've got such market forces working with Iraqi Security Forces. But the heat for the county is really not on yet but it's getting close US are pounding away at targets inside Mosul. Well as using a field artillery. As on the news last night holly Williams a reporter who is just. Amazing. Our story from China when time which started talking Chinese people involved. Disaster was. Yeah but use in at one point the suicide. Bombers as they are known to now right. But it says the opposition is on suicide vehicles and more approach dangerously close to them. And though as a journalism which in insisting position gives you only get involved in it but yet I think it would be pulling on somebody's shoulders seeing shoot him. Right I mean. So is this going to be a situation where. Everybody knows who their fighting or is it going to be a muddled Middle Eastern. I think they're the enemy but I'm not sure but they might be friends. No I think he knows nothing about that part of the world that it is important lines drawn to lose and who isn't a lot of its tribal still. You know is that it is to try to milk back into society notably I think they're gonna have a challenge to that because that's the Kurdish town. Armed people Wear their religion all over themselves and their face and actually even whatever the case may be says that that would be difficult to do once that comes to. You know genocide that just a million people inside of Mosul that that is concerned about the humanitarian crisis and having a million refugees I just don't see how that's gonna work. When I'm getting reports this morning at about only six to 101000 crisis fighters total. Within that city so from a military perspective 101000 people shouldn't be able to control a million. And from our numbers that we have on our side should be able to provide an overwhelming force to take him out. We talked about allow real quick because you know it's ubiquitous everybody's heard of and I don't know if they know about it. Is series' largest city. The Russians agreed to stop bombing for eight hours I think. A little that if you could into into perspective fours and who's. For who whose the United States and Russia. Are they in opposition and what about argument humanitarian crisis who is not you know let poll on in the middle I guess between. Fronts on the battlers. Yeah also asserted that it. Seemed to be the end of the state. That government inside Syria. And as Russia needs to have beside government survive there. And they're doing and can support them by bombs bombing strikes civilians in hospitals. Don't have to let it was a bit parts towns and couple 100000 people live there. And and so you know cutting up what a surprise cutting off electrical grid all kinds of things. Without recourse and and so that the US has very little leverage could we have those in the game we have no people on the ground. In fact we're supporting rebel group right now that might be more infiltrated with the al-Qaeda than what we perceive to be. Good individuals that would put on fights so and domestic and would that we've got to separate compartmentalized places that are rocket monthly dues and other. And opened in both cases and blockades were completely out of the picture than just being from the current. It's mess thank you major appreciate your time out front you know today I'm into my lines retired major in CBS news military analyst and human following them all these people on Syria as some of these civilians. And that neat now entering day if they're lucky they can scurry out when the bombing stops and grab some water and I can only imagine. When it must be like I mean it's like post-Katrina. But with people bombing knew at the same time. And when they hear one of the explosions they go undercover because when they try to find some shelter because they realize here comes. Six when he three will talk more about them also talk about policing in this nation. When we return right now though it's time for the lines will be open for you to weigh in on whatever you want the next hours so retarded monkey any indeed think he'll show up at the council meeting today in do you think he should. Resign. I think you can look at this from a moral standpoint and I think you can also look at it from a practical standpoint witches. And I agree with Clancy and this pain and I'm paraphrasing obviously ain't no way he can be effective as a parish president. When you speculating as to whether or not. Do you think he'll show his face and then moments in the happening it happened at the meeting. If he doesn't do you think you'd be better for my Kenny did just resign. And then there's the situation in Chicago and when all of this first started my biggest fear was that we're going to neutered the police department seat at the I think the head of the associations of chiefs of police apologizing. For police and mistreatment of minorities. Back in the Ferguson days ahead a police officer in Alabama detective who was beaten because he didn't Mona he only uses gun because he was afraid. Of being caught up in all of this national controversy being perceived to be a villain from the get go it setter. California. The radio California a couple of days ago couple officers. Were. Sitting amber have a scoffed at thing and break. And a guy comes in with a name fifteen type rifle. And tries to assassinate then Edwards Starbucks. But thankfully the gun jammed. These would have been two dead officers. And in Chicago this woman was beaten within an inch line by a man on PCP. Because she didn't wanna shoot him and a reason why as. She didn't want her life. To be ruined. Because they were heard name would be all over the media it would go into the they were known or family etc. saturn's goes under the influence of PCP. And I say this because the the guy in Tulsa that we shot and killed by the female officer who is now facing. Murder charges was under the effect of PCP and it's something that you can't release the from the video some bottom line knowing your meals uses color protection program. If you are an officer in Jefferson oral Orleans or you have a family member who is. Has all of this changed the way you do your job. The fact that you are under intense scrutiny and to be honest are going to be presumed to be a murderer. By the media until you are exonerated and then you better have eighteen different. Videos proving that you had to use your gun. I wanna know I don't know of any of this is helping policing in the country or not you tell me it's 60187. Airlines are wide open no gas don't want you know Erin and people have a chance to call and tell me what they think well. I'm tired of this police thing in Chicago and and I think the police are being neutered. In this country and I think they're so afraid user weapon 01 woman Wanda getting beaten up an officer and oh in Chicago within an inch of her life as a detective and Alabama while bank didn't beat out. And it is it's saying there is atmosphere in this country where in the police are presumed to be guilty until proven innocent. Out you know what amazes me though we always talk about maybe. And soda gone for the gun the taser but we seem B share reports constantly about ten users not getting the job done. Oh in Chicago they were two days in this like. And quietly trying to move on cattle and it's actually. Induce any hyped up on PCP ride and that brings he acted tells in the text. Incidents is totally different situation it is hands up. But if he was on PCP as the clinical test of the chemical test she owed. Then you don't know what he was saying what he was due enemy is officer fear for life doesn't come out and she's been charged with murder. The other thing I want talk about his Mike yen. And Mike annie's mothers is taken out for image youth thing. Data mom would guests. For her son she said that her son ninth inning never touched or kissed the young man. And that it was a joke. That went too far that's their story that he was just joking around with text and then. It's hard to go too far so he finally put an end to. The guy indicated the seventeen Euro said he had the block calls and text from my pennies number. So is this about poor judgment by public officials. Is it about a public official being gay. Or is it because. This kid was seventeen. And wild legally. It wasn't. Child molestation. It was close and in terms of federal law if it was determined that the messages route scene he could be facing. Criminal charges of do you think he should resign wanna hear from yell at 260187. In finally with the debate tonight. If you win against. Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump some advice what would you tell them to do. And what are you looking forward tonight is tonight gonna change your mind about anything or are you watching it just for entertainment. On and now and do you think enough of the real issues. And has been made of the real issues specifically Supreme Court etc. horror wiese is stuck on. Personalities. Texans in and says one of my Guinea's biggest critics owns a magazine that is about his left leaning as it can be seasoning they would be tolerant. Of diversity and that nine Kenny being gay is not such a big deal I don't know if the opposition's about diversity. As much as it is about this is a seventeen year old kid that you noticed. In high school and get somebody else's serve as a matchmaker Johnny engine telling a morning or DeVon WL. And they. We president did Oakland. That is quality. Eight year. Limit. And he can't do this treatment it would have been. To scoot into it and actually and it won. With a slap on the ability to. Yeah. Yeah I don't. Things like I'll think of what their zone mean he'd be criminally charged. Which people that we do it should be listened to the and at that as a commitment is to go. You don't think it goes whose judgement and all. I guess I don't know what point you trying to make Johnny you trying to say that the teachers that off too easy. Well let. Hello to somebody else. In my would you want somebody else penalties. I. Just a tree. And he. Good. He's good in the debate. Include being. Adamant that as it's. She's not going to lead the the. Obama amen amen amen thank you for your call right here because I'm not about collect it drag his wife into it she's got. No say in this in all and you know now with their relationship is an here you that you very angry and passionate I just don't know what you're angry about it. Went when you make a comparison like that you can either say that. The teachers retreated. Too easily in nets you think they should have been dealt with more harsher consequences. But the law is the law and Louisiana losses seventeen is the age of consent there was no actual sex that was charge steer. And I think when your parish president it carries with it. Different responsibilities and being a teacher and being around students every day. Because I I don't think these teachers will be welcome on high school campuses anymore and neither is my Guinea John in river in China aren't evident throughout the morning. IQ IQ. Absolutely people get you gone crazy there aren't they want to respond lie about it. And heart is. And keep it. Why CNET and why does he have to go to Johnny. She is the apparently. And that's the kind of person that you want you kids wouldn't go so I'd be at the want his children it would not. Is it about being cracked a goal or theoretical because even even if he didn't commit a crime and I've seen Harry Rosenberg say be pretty tough to convict him of anything. Any kind of federal charger obscenity or anything like that. But I mean desist is there anyway practically this could work is is gonna blow over or not. I think there. But resting is were there any need to carry out quite like. Bill. Such let. We made a mistake but he made a mistake with the World Cup people. I'll shut out it'll. You know there are so specially bad approach of spiritual. A public official present that may not do was lie about it. What he wanted that little. Trial bill that would. Louis seventeen and he gave him allegedly designer underwear and and asked him for pictures sound and I think. At a text him sentences why is this problem it was not illegal not everything and it's. Legally is right inheriting its ride is legal and I just I don't understand how you can give this guy Japan us. For making a pass add a seventeen year old kid when you're 38 year old mayor tanner. Gary pepper apparently Rick they're equipped big guy down. But I don't I don't innocently Steinfeld I don't care about that I just think you got to shoot better judgment than to be married. With children and then. From going after a kid in high school I just think it's used poor judgment and I don't see any way how this can work but it like you know what you think. Text comes in and say is Zach. Child molester. If they key is if seventeen is kid maybe your moral police should petitions say to raises the age consent. Your last caller got it right you all are up in arms because he's gay bigotry at its finest I'm sorry you're look and get your feelings are hurt. Replied I think if this would be my Guinea doing this with a seventeen year old girl. At a Catholic high school the response would be worse. And I think he would have resigned already I think if anything he's leaning on the fact that it was a gay relationship. To try to play the discrimination card. Either way in my opinion it was wrong and he needs to go.
