Great to -- for emea. I wouldn't go and we're still -- are you doing. I've been retired fourteen years and it price at and that line now -- it will hit we're talking about. This alleged case of police brutality in buffalo and the whole subject of cellphone cameras is also come up because of this. Police kind of -- feel about having cameras nearly everywhere. Well that to be honest with you if you don't think that there's cameras everywhere in law enforcement today and you're fooling yourself. He. I'm pretty good friends with Vicky are strippers and the attorney for the national front's probably -- -- association now. And we've talked about the future and there's some some case law. Some states that there are laws but you know I you'd think that somebody's acting but can't grow shall we are somewhere. Or they won't -- and here we have a situation where a half dozen buffalo police publishers are placed on administrative leave. And there are accusations of alleged brutality being shorted out now. How aren't these guys and women of any woman were involved as we don't know because it was dark currency. But -- a half dozen cups. How aren't these police officers train because you know you arrest somebody the person who suspects calling you names screaming and kicking. I mean you have to use restraint otherwise. Everything's a lot of the control how are these people trained. The other trade they're trying to use as much force as necessary. What. Certain things that factor into that we we get cases where people live that are high on drugs or. Or raw or are you actually just disabled who accuse me. Strengthen and I won't you know what a perfect world. You would come out and say please put your hand behind your bad in envelopes which you and -- -- But we don't know that we don't look at the world but to try and use whatever force is necessary.

Put with the public get used to that they're back and think that all these guys if there's an allegation that these guys are just gonna get away with its. And so so there's some protection for not only -- officers but also the public is aware that OK there's an allegation. I remember when. I believe it was not a prostitute claimed that she was sexually assaulted while being transported to police of course. And they added the -- kind of in limbo with the fact that they were totally innocent in the radio in the mileage on our -- that. They're all allegations like this you have to -- about the fact that. In the hundreds of thousands of context that the Baltimore police department has with the public. I don't want you here it's it's miniscule. And and even even those he recovered this guy's a criminal. Whether he. -- drug user or edit or. Our of jobs. One -- the other he's not a good. He -- from the police according to everything I've seen and that it is allegedly beaten. And he's these sit there and he sure didn't look like -- were beaten up in that photograph I saw and why.
