Good morning. Good afternoon. Or good evening, depending on when you’re tuning in. My name is Jonathan Torres Herrera, and you are watching the JTH show today. We’re going to talk about Garrett foster and the Austin, Texas shooting that first roll that intro. Alright, so before we get started, I want to, again, thank all of you guys for watching and supporting the show…
It has taken us yet again, into a whole other level in that level is that the show is now available on Spotify and the iTunes podcast library. So thank you. You know, it’s for all of you guys out there supporting, you know, the road has been, you know, not the easiest, there’s a lot of work, but you know, you know, with all of you guys supporting and watching the show regularly, you know, I really wouldn’t, wouldn’t go anywhere. Right. So thank you very much for, for the support now that we are also podcasting officially, we I’m going to have to be more detailed in how I speak, because obviously when you’re watching this on YouTube, it’s, it’s one thing.
1 (1m 38s):
But when you’re listening and if I’m just pointing it here and pointing there, they’re bringing like, what the hell is he doing? So I’m going to be more descriptive. So for those of you guys watching now, if I go over things, as I’m doing them, and you’re like, why is he describing when he’s doing what my hand is up here? My hand is down here, people are going to be like, what then? What are you doing? So anyways, now, you know what I’m all right, so let’s get into the show. So today, you know, you know, we’re going to get into the, to the whole bunch of clips today. You obviously saw that first one at the beginning of the show, I have a few that I want to present to you.
1 (2m 9s):
And that is around the shooting that happened, which involved a 20 year old air force veteran and armed protester, Garrett foster, who was fatally shot at a late night, black lives matter protest in Austin, Texas. This happened around nine 50 local time. And it started when a driver aggressively pulled into a street that was crowded with protesters. We have two videos that I want to share with you guys right off the bat of different angles.
1 (2m 39s):
One of them is very similar to the one you guys just saw, but the other one is from actually from a person that was across the street, but let’s roll the first video.
0 (2m 47s):
1 (3m 0s):
Alright. So in this first one, you know, you see one of the protestors that’s filming, you know, the protest as her walking across in the street. You know, one of the things that I can point out is you hear someone in the background saying, take your time. Now this jumped out at me, right? Why? Because you have a big group and it is a group in a second video. You’re going to see that, you know, that’s kind of blocking traffic. They’re crossing the street. Obviously the PR is a protest. So this is going to happen. I understand that that’s going to happen. It’s the nature of the event.
1 (3m 31s):
However, in my opinion, right? I think a lot of people, I want to believe at least that a lot of people are decent enough where they’re, you know, they see the lights as a change and they usually stop. They let cars go by and then the protest continues, right? I mean, I’ve seen even parades do that, right? I think genuinely people can be nice. Right? And courteous. Now you hear someone in the background saying, take your time. Just, you know, yes, we’re blocking, the lights are changing. Take your time.
1 (4m 3s):
It may not be a big deal for you for me. It’s, it’s just one little thing to show that there are going to be people trying to aggravate the situation in any way they can, even if it’s a SIM, something as simple as take your time, just cross whenever you want. So that’s one thing. That’s one remark off this video. The next one is, you know, the, the, the woman, you know, as soon as she hears her shots or first she hears, she hears that the honking, she runs over right.
1 (4m 35s):
And assumes, Oh my God, someone got round over. Why do I point this out? Well, you’re going to understand why in a minute, but you know, I can tell you ahead of time that this is Guinean yet. Again, another thing that shows that people try to, you know, aggravate the situation just by saying that she could be on life. By the way, in my, what I mean by alive is, you know, live on Facebook or whatever and say, Oh my God, look at someone. Just, just run over someone. So what happens? Things like that go viral. And it’s just like, Oh, someone ran over someone at the, at the Austin protests.
1 (5m 9s):
Wow, man. I wonder who it was. Someone’s hating on black lives matter, which was not the situation by the way. But for that, let’s go to the next video. And for this one, I’m actually going to have it overlaid right here, because I want to, there’s no art. There’s no real audio with it. So I’m going to talk over it. Okay. So let’s roll that video. All right. So on this video, you can see right there walking across the street, you know, there’s some, some people on scooters, I’m assuming those are the ones that you can run on the street. People, you know, they’re blocking the, the cross street because the processors are walking.
1 (5m 45s):
Okay. There’s a red light anyways. You know, people are again, continue walking here is where the light, isn’t a turn green you’re momentarily. Here it is. And then even the car that’s right now, we’re watching from their point of view, starts to go because they want to turn now the car right now, you know, presents are like, Hey, wait. Here’s, we’re going to see everybody run right now. Alright. Run towards a car. And it’s like, boom, boom, boom. And then everybody starts running away. Okay. All right.
1 (6m 15s):
So you can go back that you can go back and watch that, but in the video you can see, as soon as the light turns green, even the individual who happened to be there recording with his, probably his dash cam is like, okay, he bore walking, but I gotta get outta here. It’s green, it’s green, my turn. And he attempts to pull out to put, you know, pull away now, right in front of, of him. He catches that one vehicle that was involved in the shooting. Right. And in my opinion, and I agree with a lot of the comments and even what the police said and witnesses as well is, Hey, this guy was trying to pull into the crowd, not the angle that we’re watching, obviously, but the, the, the car run in front into the crowd aggressively.
1 (7m 1s):
Right. So that is in my opinion. True. Okay. But what was the individual trying to do? The light turned green for the car in the front. He was trying to pull away in the other car. His friend did the same thing. No different than you see in everyday traffic. Now I’m going to get more into some of the other facts that have come out and also, you know, my opinion and hypotheticals as to why this guy attempted to pull right into the protest crowd. Okay. But before we, you know, we get further down the rabbit hole.
1 (7m 35s):
I want to show a, I want to show a video it’s pretty long. So I’m going to have, I’m going to have you guys just bear with me. It’s a video that I want to do some commenting on it’s it’s someone that I think had a lot of use definitely looks like he gets a lot of attention and the way he tried to explain this to his following, to anybody that comes across as videos, period, in my opinion is very, how can I put this?
1 (8m 17s):
I don’t want to say he’s lying. All right. But he’s definitely emitting backs. And he’s omitting some of the, some of the, some of the things that you can see in any of the videos that I’m going to show you here today. And any of the videos that you can Google yourself, but he’s trying to paint a narrative, right? That in my opinion, again, suits what he wants you to believe. And if you do not use any critical thinking, which I preach about this before, in other videos, when you’re watching something online, reading something, then I may know critical thinking.
1 (8m 52s):
You can potentially end up believing whatever this person tells you, whatever, whatever his agenda is. And then possibly, you know, getting all worked up about it. And then maybe it end up in one of these process yourself risking your life. But, but for that, let’s, let’s jump into the video. Okay. So, erm, again, I’m going to go ahead and show it and I’m going to go ahead and play it and then stop it where I want to make some comments. So let’s start right now
2 (9m 21s):
In case you haven’t heard this story yet. This is Garrett foster and his fiance Whitney. They were at a black lives matter protest and Texas Garrett was pushing Whitney in her wheelchair because she’s an amputee. When a man who was trying to run over protesters decided to fire H shots in their direction, killing Garrett justice for Garrett.
1 (10m 2s):
Alright, there’s another video. Let’s let’s stop there. Okay. So first of all, I’ve heard this before from other people commenting on, on the situation. I’ve even heard it from people commenting from news stations, big newspapers. And I have seen also a big backlash in reference to what I’m about to say. And that is that they are individuals using the fact that Garrett was engaged to a woman who it has had an, it looks like several amputations are moles, like as a reason for you to feel even more sorry for him, right?
1 (10m 48s):
They start off the story, the telling of what has happened, the Inn and the unfortunate outcome, but they make sure to mention, Hey, just so you know, Garrett is Y and I’ve also heard, he didn’t say this by the way right now, but this is along the lines. Gary is a white man, by the way, who is engaged to a black woman who happens to have unfortunately and mutations. And he was pushing her on the wheelchair, in my opinion.
1 (11m 20s):
And I’m not the only one that feels this way. She is not the subject matter here. She, as much as we feel horrible and I do feel bad for what has happened. And I do feel bad for the fact that she has lost, lost a loved one. She is not the topic of discussion. Right. And she shouldn’t be almost weaponized for you to feel this blind compassion for what happened to Garrett.
1 (11m 54s):
And there’s blind anger for whoever shot him. We’re going to get deeper into this right now. You’ll understand why I say what I say, but you know, he tries to do that. And he’s not the only one, like I said earlier, he there’s been other people and they’ve been called out for it. In fact, he was called out for it in his own comments. Right. But, okay. So that’s that. So let’s, let’s continue with the rest of the video.
2 (12m 17s):
Here’s another shot of Garrett and Whitney. They’ve been together since they were kids. And on that last post, yes. There’s a little, few other tidbits of information here and there.
1 (12m 32s):
Okay. I had stopped her again. So one thing that I missed, if you notice earlier, the guy here said, Oh, there was a car trying to run over protests, protesters. That’s not, that is not true. The police has said that that is not true. He wasn’t trying to purposely run over protesters. I mean, the mere fact that you see the individual who was in the vehicle honk, eh, you know, that told officers, Hey, there were, he was trying to, you know, get them out the way he was.
1 (13m 4s):
He was being aggressive. Yes. When he pulled into the crowd, he was trying to make his way through the crowd by using his vehicle, which, you know, it’s a Dick move. Right. But he wasn’t trying to run them over. If he did, he would have just ran him over. He wouldn’t have honked. He went awaited for the light to change. He would’ve just ran him over period. Okay. He wouldn’t have stopped if he was trying to run him over, he would have just kept going. I mean, it doesn’t take someone, you know, a genius to look up.
1 (13m 36s):
People that have been run over in protest. There was a big one that happened in Charlottesville where an innocent woman lost her life because that where a man purposely ran him his vehicle through a crowd, that guy, right. That POS was trying to run over people, this guy wasn’t. But here we go with this individual saying, Oh, he was trying to run over protestors, lie, lie. Because you know, it fits his narrative. What he’s trying to get you to understand now what, another thing I picked up on, he keeps trying to show you kind and an intimate moment of Garrett and his, you know, fiance.
1 (14m 15s):
He knows what he’s trying to do. He’s trying to manipulate you into thinking like, wow, look at that. It’s such a beautiful couple. And look at the picture he uses now purposely using a picture where you see, unfortunately, a woman, not that it’s a bad thing. You know, people that have amputations or they’re very strong individuals, you know, some of them after if they accept, you know, things, you know that, you know, like the, the guy that was like the blade runner or whatever, you know, and they, you know, they have some, you know, things, they, you know, what they call him, but like, you know, feed and arms that they, that they make for them, then, you know, living a very normal life.
1 (14m 51s):
I’m sorry if I don’t know the, the name of what I’m describing here, but he’s using her. That’s my point, right? To show that she is this poor individual and here is Garrett. This, this very intimate moment. It’s okay. I think I made my point. So let’s continue.
2 (15m 10s):
But I just gave you, what’s been confirmed so far and I’ll provide more details as they come in. But until then prayers go out to Whitney and rest in peace, Garrett. Okay. Fact check for the people that claim. They want one,
1 (15m 37s):
By the way, this, this is where I guess he gets pissed off. Cause people start calling him out, right? He brought like, dude enough, like we get what you’re trying to do. The, you know, the soft pauses, you know, we get it and you’re showing over and over this picture. So this is where he gets a little pissed off. Watch.
2 (15m 57s):
The details that I gave were the only details that had been confirmed by police thus far, as far as the rumors, Jarett may have had a weapon on him, but it’s the second amendment, right? To have one, because remember you didn’t have a problem with these guys. Aren’t themselves over their rights to get haircuts. It’s his second amendment, right? He has a license and it’s texted. Everyone has a gun in Texas, including the man who shot. And also according to the police, only two people fired their weapons that day. The man in the truck and a bystander who allegedly fired out of the truck asked he was trying to pull off, not Gary.
2 (16m 34s):
And again, if you having a gun, this is never a reason to be shot and killed. These men should have been mowed down on those stairs,
1 (16m 42s):
All on. Did he just say all those people with guns should’ve been mowed down on the stairs, right? To defend his point that Hey, Gary was, had had a gun rightfully so because in Texas you can carry open carry. Even if it’s, you know, an AR you can and Hey, if that’s the, the logic, then Hey, then these guys should also be mowed down. Interesting. Interesting that he, that he says that, I wonder if a J R real NJ or junior and re I’m sorry, I’m not saying your name.
1 (17m 19s):
Right. But the name also means people like this, let me show you this. Wonder if he also refers to this?
2 (17m 29s):
1 (17m 44s):
No, that’s cool. Right? Because, well, first of all, that’s anonymous 2021, which would probably be not even the real anonymous, but whatever. Well, an Arsal you laid over some core sound, right? Some techno music would like, you know, the clocking and things. And when people are walking, you’re like, yeah, well that makes it seem powerful, strong, right? Cause I hope you don’t mean that the other people are, should be Mo now because they’re white protestors, armed protesters are not these by the way. Not these cause these were to be black. I hope that will not be your argument.
1 (18m 17s):
I hope that you also referenced them that everybody with guns, whether they’re white, black, Brown, everybody had guns on the street should be more down. I wonder, I wonder what he would say to that, but let’s go back to the individual. Right. Because he does continue now. Unfortunately I need to find where I was. Here we go. All right. So once he says that he goes on and continues and you know, talks about the boys and blues.
1 (18m 47s):
This is where he says this.
2 (18m 48s):
The G when those people were actually harassing us or the boys in blue, you seem to care about so much. Okay.
1 (18m 56s):
Alright. So, you know, he, he took advantage of also a jab, you know, at the individuals at that say, you know, blue lives matter, you know, as a reference to, you know, cops matter as well. Right here in the last video, he says something interesting.
2 (19m 12s):
Okay. So offhand, I don’t believe anything that the police say,
1 (19m 16s):
So he doesn’t believe anything. The police say, but in the video before you heard him go back, you know, he is like, this is what the cop said, but now he’s like, I don’t believe what they say. It’s okay.
2 (19m 27s):
I questioned everything. However, I find it interesting. How many of you take everything the police say has gospel until it contradicts your agenda? Because the police statement says there were two shooters, two men were arrested and questioned. One was the driver of the vehicle who shot and killed Garrett. The other was a bystander who allegedly shot at the driver as he tried to flee. That’s what the current police statement says. And the local news coverage backs that up. And that video that many of you were talking about and sharing supports these events on that video, you hear two separate weapons being fired.
2 (20m 4s):
And only two, there were two shooters, the driver and the bystander, neither the police statement, news coverage, or video support any of these claims that Garrett ever fired him.
1 (20m 23s):
Okay. So that’s the end of the, the video has mini-series right. Okay. So yes, it is true. Apparently Garrett did not fire his weapon. I looked into it and I couldn’t find anything that contradicts that. So, OK, dad, that’s true. He’s not wrong there. Now what, what I found interesting that he was saying is that, you know, that I lost my train of thought here, but at least let’s talk about the fact that he was saying that there’s two shooters, right?
1 (20m 55s):
Yes. There is two shooters. Yes. It was the guy that turned onto the crowd and then he shot and then the someone else returned fired. Okay. So let’s look at some, some of the obvious things to start with. Some of the stuff I’ve said in the past, that’s what it sounds like here. Everyone lost by the way there, I don’t, I don’t see any winners here right now. The guy that both individuals actually, that, that drew weapons and they use them. They were both taken to custody and then they were both released.
1 (21m 28s):
Okay. Now we’re going to go over an article here that had the most recent updates from a local news, our ne news email@example.com. But before we get to that, you know, they did say that the individual in the car fled and he fled out of fear, right? Obviously someone else returned fire. He probably heard that. And you know, desire to peel out of there. He then called the police himself. And today this just happened. And here’s where I am.
1 (21m 59s):
Come get me because, you know, I know you’re going to, going to be looking for me. Right. So, yes, he’s not wrong towards, towards the end there where he says that Garrett never, never fired his weapon. But what have I said in the past, you have individuals, Ryan, a video that I covered, you have individuals that are posturing are coming out with their weapons. For whatever reason they want to look or feel big, tough, then what you want to say, that that’s how they feel protected. That’s how they want to protect the rest.
1 (22m 29s):
Well, let me tell you something. I saw a comment from someone saying, Oh, that protestors never sign a name of someone just in general protesters. Right? Said that when Gary was out in protest, you know, with them, cause this wasn’t the first night he was out that they felt safe because he was bringing his weapon. Well, I asked an eight say to people that would say things like that. It’s like, well, do you understand what happened? You know, I don’t think I need to be detailed in what ultimately the outcome was for Garrett and bringing out a weapon right there.
1 (23m 0s):
He came out to a protest with a weapon. He approached the vehicle with someone else who had a weapon, that individual decided to use it against Garrett. And now Garrett unfortunately has lost his life. There is no, right. This guy came, you know, showing video or pictures of other protestors armed, like I’ve said before is the most stupidest thing you can think you can do is bring a weapon out because all you’re doing is posturing and calling inciting for people to be like, okay, all right, I see your weapon.
1 (23m 41s):
All right, let me go get mine. And then, you know, well, look at, look at where we’re at now with this mess. Okay. So let’s move on to another video. Now this video is, I would say is actually key, not by my terms by the police terms because it’s actually interview of Boster himself.
3 (24m 6s):
Okay. 47. Where’d you got it out tonight. Don’t let us March in the streets anymore. So got us practice some, some of our right command. If I use it against the cops, I’m dead. I think all the people that hate us and I want to say shit to us too big of a push to stop and actually do anything about it. So my roommate got arrested and they stopped letting us March anywhere.
3 (24m 42s):
1 (24m 48s):
Okay. So two things that jump out at me, verse one, right towards the end there where they ask I’m like, so why did he start caring? Well, his roommate got arrested and they wouldn’t let him protest. So his thought process, then I’m going to get my gun. My roommate gets arrested. You all? Let me process, I’ll go get my gun. That’s that was his thought process. Right? It is unfortunate. But that’s what he thought. So sorry about that.
1 (25m 20s):
You know, I look at the video, right. And I, and I’m thinking, man, he doesn’t look like a bad dude. Like this is not a guy that in my opinion, looks like he’s aggressive or he’s trying to posture. Like normally I say they do right verbally, at least until he’s like, you know, and whoever, you know, the cops, you know, I can’t go against him cause he’ll kill me. But anyone else they won’t do shit. Cause they’re pussies too. I didn’t, he didn’t, I don’t think he’s a shit, but I, you know, that’s be this I pussies.
1 (25m 53s):
That’s when he lost me, you know then, and I’m like, damn man, like it is unfortunate. You know, may you rest in peace, but damn it is hard when I was seeing all these facts and all these videos. And in this interview for me to be able to sit behind the notion that this was a fool outright innocent man that was murdered in cold blood. You going to say that he was murdered, he was shot. He was killed. But in cold blood and innocent man, you know, is slain.
1 (26m 26s):
No. And that’s what a lot of people like the individual we just saw is trying to portray is trying to give you that is not the case here at all at all. So here, let me read some notes that are made for you guys. You know, I put on here a thought, you know, that came to my mind earlier. And that is what a lot of people often say on comments when they see someone acting up or someone being, you know, I don’t know, loud, you know, disruptive what someone else often you’ve seen comments, people again, posturing saying man to me.
1 (27m 11s):
Yeah. Okay. Oh, I wish you would. And I put that on here. Right? Cause that’s what happened that night, that man a car. Right. And it’s a theory, but you know, granted that my theory saw the protestors, you rushed at them. He shouldn’t have done that. What happens? You saw it for yourself. People bombed Russia’s vehicle and started tapping on the window. And that was an individual. I was like, I wish you would. Now that was individual. You’ve probably seen the comment except this individual took it a step further and say, I wish you would got his gun out and shot.
1 (27m 49s):
You know, the reason I say this is because God damn, man, it just makes you maybe sound tough and you think you sound cool. But if you carry that with you, it is true. When I hear a lot of times at, you know, what you say, and you know, in writing and will you tell yourself, you end up eventually possibly portraying that in real life. And you know, him being out there saying, you know, the pussies are not going to do anything.
1 (28m 19s):
It’s like someone else as like, I wish you would. And that’s kind of what happened. That’s in reality. That’s what happened. Someone in the vehicle felt challenged, threatened, saw another meal, a person tied with a, with a weapon and said, okay, I wish you would and fired. Right? Idiotically stupidly everything. You can think of every crappy word. Right? Cause he shot at innocent people. And we saw the other dumb ass. I shut up in his, you know, out in the open, in, in Albuquerque, New Mexico and other moron.
1 (28m 55s):
Right? When that moment and what have I said before, when you have a gun and you start shooting, I don’t, I don’t, who knows working, goes through your mind in that moment that that adrenaline is rushing and you’re just shooting out. You know, I don’t think, unless that individual’s in mass murder and he wasn’t big or he wasn’t, that’s not what he was trying to do because otherwise he would have stayed and continued shooting at random people, just random people, right. He shot at Garrett foster.
1 (29m 27s):
And that’s why I’m going to get into right now, according to some actual witness statements have taken. Okay. So the Texas Tribune wrote an article. I’ll put a link to it in a description, whether you’re listening on a podcast or here on a YouTube video, I did some highlights. It’s very long, but the highlight that I took away from it, some of them were Garrett. Foster’s death could hinge on which man, the police and prosecutors and grand jury believes first provoked.
1 (29m 57s):
The other Bossar was visibly carrying an AK 47 rifle, which is legal and taxes. A Morris was attempting to turn his vehicle onto Congress Avenue and honked at protesters. Michael cappuccino, a demonstrator at the scene told the Texas Tribune that the protestors, including foster surrounded the car after it hit a traffic cone and the driver stopped. Michael cappuccino also told the New York times he did not see the driver fire at any one else.
1 (30m 33s):
Other than foster, they are conflating accounts about whether foster raised his gun at the Morris who was legally armed as well. Texas so-called standing your ground. Law allows people to use deadly force against someone else. If they feel they are in danger, Natasha Harper, Madison, a Austin city council member was critiqued heavily because she wrote on a tweet.
1 (31m 9s):
She said it is absolutely possible that the police department is, has a bias against foster in an investigation because he had, he was an anti police brutality. Protester, obviously there’s people that are with, you know, the boys and blue has a other guy said, and they’re like, Hey, you know, that’s that’s BS. When he was shot and was down police officers rushed to his aid and attempted CPR and everything there’s there’s witnesses as out of them. So she was critiqued for saying that, right.
1 (31m 39s):
Especially as in she’s a council member. Now someone else I was critiqued where someone in the Austin police association and the president can Cassidy shared a video clips on day of foster explaining why he brought his guns to protest, which is a video that I just showed you guys, which includes explicit language about all the people that hate us are too cowardly to stop and actually do anything about it. Right? He was, he later on took down the tweet because he got a big backlash as well, but not before he said, this guy lost, I’m sorry, this is a guy that lost his life last night, he was looking for a confrontation.
1 (32m 22s):
He found it, you know? So he took down the tweet eventually when, you know, when people started going after him, because that’s, that’s a little cold to say, I’ve got to say he’s not wrong, but you know, to say it outright like that on a tweet, especially if you’re maybe a high official isn’t look good, whatever. Right. The last thing that I, that I have found on here is that the police actually had foster on their radar because he would have commonly come to rallies with an AK 47. So no, according to police, this was not the first time foster showed up to two and a rally armed.
1 (32m 59s):
Unfortunately this time, the last time was, you know, the last time he showed up because someone, again, you know, I don’t know, took Psalm as a challenge, you know, which is the last thing that I have on here. You know, as final thoughts a do I believe Garrett foster should have died? No, I do not believe Garrett foster should have been gunned down that said, do I believe that it, Garrett foster is 100% without fault.
1 (33m 34s):
According to statements, according to evidence, according to video, according to he says, I do not believe so, no. Now if something else comes out later other videos, which maybe they do exist, okay. Maybe my opinion will change. But right now, based on what you have seen tonight or today, and I have, I have seen myself, I am sorry. This is individual. That by his own account was bringing a weapon because they weren’t letting him process protests and anybody else that would challenge him where too much of a pussies he was out, he was one of the individuals that rushed the vehicle.
1 (34m 16s):
When that vehicle turned onto a crowd to do what I know. And somebody, somebody saw him as a, as a threat. And according to Texas, you know, you can go look at it yourself. That person was allowed in his own right to return fire. And he did unfortunately, killing foster was the outcome of that, that fire. Now someone else, right? Also with a weapon. I don’t know if you had a, by the way, that’s that second shooter.
1 (34m 47s):
I don’t know if he had his weapon legally or not. You know, he, he also, you know, drew weapon and shot at the car, you know, and that’s, I don’t know how that’s treated. I don’t know how the police has taken there. I don’t know if they’re going to also let that individual say, Hey, maybe he also fear for his life and because of his law in Texas. Well, everybody, you know, everybody gets off. I don’t know. Do I believe that the driver, it would be, you know, completely Mmm. From our accountability?
1 (35m 18s):
No, I actually don’t believe that either. I don’t. I believe that the investigation should continue. Right. And should continue and finding out several. And this is where critical thinking comes in one. I would like to know if I was an investigator, was that individual circling the area? Was he looking for trouble? Was he under the influence of anything? And when, I mean anything, I mean, anything I want you to think about the last time that you took anything that would alter your personality, even red bull, someone’s gonna be like, Oh, really red bulls, do a, try taking two, four red bulls and see how you act versus when you don’t.
1 (35m 56s):
There are people that are highly sensible to taking anything coffee and that altruism all of a sudden they’re they’re, you know, they’re irrational, anything, let alone drugs. Of course, right now they could have been taking and they’re circling. So I want to know that I want to know what that individual’s state of mind is. Is he like a full blown, right? Extreme meant as like, I’m looking, give me an opportunity so I can shoot at you. Does that does change things. It does. It would change things. Now, all that has not been released, but this is why I say, do I believe that this individual should be 100%?
1 (36m 30s):
You know, let go and released. And you know, and I don’t know what the word I’m looking for here, but exact essentially clear of all blame. No I don’t. Until they continued the investigation right now at the end of they find out, Hey, this is a guy that maybe was a little pissed off because he turned onto a Sri. He feels aggravated already that apparently these protests have been going on for some days. Maybe he lives somewhere in the area and he’s like, damn man, I can’t stand this shit every time around my neighborhood, they leave a mess.
1 (37m 1s):
They leave this. People can aggravate it. As in people, pit get pissed off because they’re on the, the right lane. And they’re like, you’re not supposed to be using this lane. If you’re not passing pass on the left lane, I’ve seen people get aggravated over that. Right? No, I don’t care. You’re not supposed to go 65. You’re not the cops. Let me go 80. If I want to go 80, over that over road, rage, let alone someone that again, this individual possibly could have been living in the area and he’s done with protests with diluting or anything like that. I mean, right now you hear there’s a protest in your area.
1 (37m 33s):
Are you thinking protest? Like people just, you know, maybe just walking around with signs or are you thinking what you have been seen commonly in the media rioting and looting and disaster chaos. You tell me what you’ve been thinking. So again, this guy driving around, he’s done. He turns onto the streets, academic yard, the way is my right of way. Get out the way he turns. And he, what happens? People start hitting the windows or you say, dude, that’s not a big deal.
1 (38m 3s):
That’s not a reason to get your gun out. Well, well, I semi agree with you. I have been in a similar situation in it sucked and I didn’t film this. Obviously I was in my vehicle. Someone happened to put this on, on Facebook, but let me show you all right. Some, you know, happened to me. So you know that I do know where I’m talking from. Roll the clip.
0 (38m 24s):
1 (38m 39s):
Okay. So my car was the green really dark green Explorer. This is something that happened a few years ago with the caravan that Ray rushed, the sanitizer border. And I was having, you know, how was I having a beer, you know, excuse me, driving to the winery, driving in and all of a sudden CARSTAR stopping. And I’m like, what’s going on? Usually just cars just flow by. This is as soon as you cross, by the way, if you don’t know, if you can locate and kind of make this, this out, this is it.
1 (39m 10s):
As soon as you cross from the United States, San Diego, California, over to Mexico. And I stopped in, I see one, two, three, four, five. It’s like all of a sudden there’s, you know, onslaught of people just rushed crazy. What happens? I don’t know how much of it you were able to see or hear, but you can hear people tapping, hitting the cars. Some of those were my car. They were literally hitting my windshield as they were running.
1 (39m 40s):
Right. Sometimes with things in their hand, I felt, I didn’t know what was gonna happen. I stopped. I I’ll tell you. I froze just like everyone else you saw there. I froze. I’m like, I don’t know what the hell is gonna happen. I locked my door and I’m like, I’m just gonna sit here until a car start moving. Then I kind of tried to maneuver around the people that were running in. I, I was, I was driving by the way, people were still trying to hit my vehicle. What am I trying to say here?
1 (40m 10s):
Unless you’ve been in a very similar situation, you might have a different perspective of what does it feel like to be driving into a crowd? Granted, this guy shouldn’t have been rushing the way he did into the crowd. Let’s get out of the way, but when you have people running and then kind of just, and you saw as soon as he turned and beep people would just rush that vehicle. First of all, why would you do that? What would that be? Why would that be your first instinct, baby renters at them, the car? Why would he do that?
1 (40m 41s):
Furthermore, what are you doing? Hitting? I mean, let’s be honest. You’re not going to win against a mortar vehicle. No matter if they want to run you over, obviously the person is going to do that. You’re not. What do you think you are Superman made out of rubber? Like what’s what goes through your mind, by the way, to the career of someone in the video in the earlier video, you, I don’t know if you heard it. Someone did say back the fuck off or something like that. I don’t know who it was, but that’s actually along the lines of what you should do. If you see someone that is attempting for some reason to run over other individuals help after it’s like, almost like when the plane goes down, right where they were saying a plane is going down, you’re supposed to put on your masters and then it helped the others.
1 (41m 21s):
Cause then you’re not help if you also get ran over. Right. But what happens? No people rush him and our people run away. As soon as they hear bullets or, you know, the gun go off. But if the gun would have not gone, can you imagine what would have happened? I’ve seen things where people get, literally pull up out of the car. I seen things where people will break glass windows here in California. I believe it was in Chino. If I’m not mistaken, there were people on the freeway that stopped vehicles.
1 (41m 52s):
And then some guy has seen with, it looks on like a hammer or something break people’s windows that are still in the freeway in their cars because they wouldn’t get out and support. So again, I ask you, what will you do? You guys, I would adjourn to a crowd street. I can agree there again. We already moved that to the side, right? For a second. But even if you have to, you know, you move into a crowded street and this are banging your vehicle. What will you do? And then you see an M a man walking towards you with an AK, what would you do?
1 (42m 25s):
This is where we need to find out if this guy was looking for trouble, this is where we get to find out what the guy’s thought process was to really make a conclusion. This is not cut and dry, but is it what the other guy was trying to show and portray and maybe even convince you about no, no, that’s, you know, I’m sorry, I’m not of that thinking. I feel horrible. A life, especially a life. So young, like Garrett, Sharon and I had been lost. May he rest in peace? You know, he leaves, you know, behind family of fiance, of course, that we’ll have to start all over without him over something that, in my opinion, many people in a month, two months from now will not maybe even care about, would not think about other than his immediate friends family.
1 (43m 11s):
And of course his fiance, everyone else we’ll move on to the next thing Trump says to the next thing to the next protest. It is very extremely unfortunate that this happened. So I want to make sure that I’m very clear on that, but anyways, that’s it for today, guys. Thanks for listening. Thanks for your, you know, listening to the podcast. Thanks for watching and as always take care of yourself, liking subscribe, and yeah, that’s it. See ya.
