So are you retired or you are you thinking about retiring. I guess the decision to retire has a lot to do with whether or not you love your job. We'll talk about this because I was reading an article that dead baby boomers are. Keeping jobs longer. And so that's preventing younger generations from moving up for getting us shots. Storm when deals are younger generations of separate the baby boomers Chris many of them are not retiring if your baby boomer are you retired would you retire when it all all that here. In just a minute also I want to mention again that town mayor LaToya Cantrell says that she's not gonna hire Warren Riley. She says he's qualified for the job with Homeland Security to the city. But she listened to people on both sides and it's best not to hire him. And I totally agree with her decision not only do I agree with her decision but I I'd I agree with the process of listening to people on both sides. Now there seems to be some talk from taken down no lock. I'm demanding transparency from the Cantrell administration. On what to do with the monuments that have been removed and I'm sure that's topic it will come up again soon. We have been talking about before police officers in Jefferson Parish to deputies. Involved in the death of 242 year old Keenan Robinson. Should they be arrested and charged with murder be NAACP says yes they should be Jefferson Parish sheriff Joseph Tinto. Has called for an independent investigation into the death of this black suspect at the hands of four wiped effigies. There have been a lot of high profile cases over the last few years where white police officers have been involved in. Questionable activity with black suspects. In some cases. Even under the Obama administration. The Justice Department. Ruled that the police officers were not wrong. They acted appropriately. But there are cases were police officers do get in trouble. Look it's a tough job. I can only imagine how difficult it is being a cop. And all the things that you have to think about. But what goes along with that job. Is doing the job properly. And if excessive force is used. And if somebody dies. And a police officer needs to be held accountable. That's basically the law. And that's the way it should be. And for all those who were screaming and shouting at the police officers the deputies about the charge shed it doesn't mean they're not gonna be charged. I think they'll be charge I would be shocked if they weren't. And secondly all of them because one in particular. Apparently strangled. The 22 year old black suspect. Now. Having said this earlier I'll say it again. The black suspect does not acquire. The police should go to church and can pull him out of the choir and end Djokovic. He's an alleged drug dealer. He ran from the police. And when you run from the police. They're going to follow you. Chances are they're gonna catch you. And if you struggle. If you resist there's going to be confrontation. They're going to try to restrain. In the process of being restrained. If excessive force issues and you die the police officers at fault. Should there be an investigation before the police officers are charged or should they be charged. Right now. If you enjoys for the comment our numbers 2601 a seven about I also wanna talk about retirement. And and our baby boomers being selfish by not retiring and do you look at retirement as an entitlement. I mean at no point in my life I mean when I was 45 years on the tour for your sold on the air.

And this is courtesy of a CBS this morning so just wears on the national news this morning and she had just dissect. Just it and I want them arrested. Because if it was filmed it's that daylight he'll be arrested so I feel that that they love about another human being so the fact that it's already had a police thinner. Well yes I mean I think it's okay to have special consideration from our police do but that's special consideration doesn't mean you can kill somebody. And it doesn't mean that. Look. Air line pilots. Can't make certain mistakes. Police officers. Can't make certain mistakes. And if you're the kind of person that gets so. Riled up. That you're so frustrated and angry with a suspect. That that's going to lead to excessive force. Then you shouldn't be a cop. Keep in Robinson's mother in Carolina also said that. Nobody's perfect but. Nobody's perfect. Game they don't have the right to figure nobody my. Nobody. And also what's remembered that as as much as some if you wanna say well this guy had a comment.

But there's so much has happened wait I don't blame you for being skeptical. I really don't. Other important I want you voted voted and a few of them at the moment you know like that is about it is actually what the but. At Bristol. And no that's that's the right way to handle it. And as as scared as you are. If you run. If you resist. If you don't comply. How many people would be alive today if they simply would have complied with police.

I Europe Miami and out of the way and a and M to walk. Well. There's you can if you can be on a vote in Key West on I can understand why you were on retired Tom I'm going to call. Here's an update on our party must opinion poll should for white JT SO deputies. The arrested and charged with murder in the death of a black suspect or should the investigation be concluded first. 80%. Say the investigation should be completed first. 20% say charge him arrest them now you issued to you by going to our web site WW well dot com. And from central city Calhoun welcome to our show. I. Am okay. Wonder. What we have now oh. And that. Point you know. Yeah so at some point you two and and accountable when you're not at all. There where you said Tony account by saying that you're not you're not supporting police officers using excessive force your sis saying what I've been saying for for two days early success this topic came up. And that is that. If you invite a confrontation with police officers are you invite a confrontation with anybody you don't know how it's gonna end. It. Like Yahoo! and I've I appreciate the call. And from ways when Ronnie here under the WL. Tori. Got along. There's a quick couple comments I think a person should protect our citizens there are multiple weapons much percentage is possible because like social. And you could die in the sixties maybe two for forty years it the most you just never know people dying younger vote and certainly people have to. But that's my antigen or apartment is an issue could retire with at least 65% of your take home. And since since I have news coming up give me a comment about Tobin a short talk about. I was gonna be about police to a good dose policeman's that they would not Wear body can. If they want to dated Havoc on an old should be parked at. No questioned said. And running. Since they're since they were undercover. I don't believe undercover police officers Wear body cameras because that might be a clue deter police officers so they don't do that. And also a Jefferson Parish there's no requirement to Wear body cameras. And that's a different topic it seems to me that body cameras do offers some evidence in many situations that would help resolve controversies situations. So should all police officers have body cameras and if they don't have them why don't think I'm scoops. We'll be right back. What would you which you like them which you like to be totally free to do whatever you want any old time. For some people have the money to retire. I don't you know I I've had times in my life where a tough things happened and die. I mean I guess I really wanted did to cut down to practically nothing I guess I could find a way to retire but I don't have any desire to retire. Here's a Texas says so screwed watched a movie all is lost. A retired Robert Redford. Is on the scene by himself. And runs into difficult times. And a necessity guy just called and said he wants to retire get a sailboat go down to Key West which again does sound brother in fighting so now we're kind of talking about their retirement as well.

Our baby boomers being selfish and whether you're a baby boomer millennial gen X gen Y whoever. Do you actually planned to retire. Now I know that there are some people who do take jobs. Because they know they can retire at a certain point. God bless you affect your decision. I couldn't do that. For me. I could not. Work in his job that I didn't like. Knowing that by the time I'm 654. Teeth and justify it I could retire it's it's too much misery. Leading to that point of retirement and you know. Because since the way life is you don't even know if you can live long enough to enjoy your retirement. We're also talking about before. GPS so JP SO up police officers deputies. Should they be arrested and charged with murder. In the death of a black suspect or should there be an investigation first that's a pretty must opinion poll give us your opinion.

Diplomat also lets you know let's think about the that the recent history you know you've got grandfathers and great grandfather's today. Who are the baby boomer generation and I guess some fathers as well. With the baby boomer generation and they have firsthand experience with police law enforcement white police officers in this treating them during. They during integration. And so the the this is first hand experience that has been passed down it's not going to be easy to change that any it should be understandable that. If you're white you don't really understand exactly what that's like. We can still talk about how important it is to comply is to police stop you.
