Good morning, good afternoon or good evening, depending on when you are tuning in, my name is Jonathan Torres Herrera and you are watching or listening to the JTH Show today. Let’s talk about the Purge of Providence and the demonstration, or Protest rather, and that is happening in Philadelphia at first role, the intro
All right. As always remember, you can hear the entire episode, unless you’re already listening to the episode on Spotify, Apple podcasts, Google podcasts, or radio Public and also a bit of quick news ear. We now have merged
So it’s definitely something that we were very happy about. Why? Because well, it’s merged a and M yeah. It’s one of those things that YouTube gives you along with many of the little perks that’s sometimes you guys are visually see, but we get to know that they are actually like milestones. Yeah. That means you’ve been good. So, you know, for me and a, yeah, you’re not, you know, like a horrible utuber that a, you know, you don’t deserve these perks from YouTube, so yeah, it’s pretty cool. These are the first few things that we kinda rolled out. And eventually what we want to do is probably have someone design them that has a much better design skills than I do and see it kind of where it goes. Right. Just us. It’s just a little start right now. So it’s down below.
0 (1m 31s):
If you guys are watching this on YouTube, if you’re not watching this on YouTube, go check it out. Okay. So let’s start with the stories for today. So the first one comes out of Providence, which is a city in Rhode Island. So this one, I don’t, I wouldn’t take it too serious, but it’s definitely something that police is being that they actually lived there. And well, there’s been actually a whole commotion out of it. Essentially, the story goes like this police in Providence again in a city and where Island has become aware of a post on social media titled the Purge, the Providence police are still checking the credibility of the post. This is an event scheduled for 10 31, which is Halloween at an undisclosed location.
0 (2m 18s):
The PO’s allegedly created by again, allegedly created by anarchists where the, the, the, the, within the Antifa movement in reaction to a recent police brutality case. So just put this video here, not right here, right? You’re nuts. Yeah. So here you can see quickly limps is have, you know, what the police is having to deal with, where you know, where they’re already taking action. In fact, governor Gina Raimondo, excuse me. If I butchered her name is currently more concerned about the parties being planned for the Halloween weekend. Sane. If you insist on having a party and your party is greater than 15 people, then we will shut you down.
0 (2m 58s):
If you insist on a party. And
2 (3m 0s):
If you are a party is greater than 15 people, then we will shut you down
0 (3m 4s):
In reaction to a recent spike of corner cases. And Providence public safety commissioner. Steve Perez says we’ve seen that according to the posts, right? And hopefully I just ask that anyone angry over this case or any case, please do it peacefully when you are
3 (3m 23s):
Testing. You’ve seen that. And hopefully I’d just ask anyone that’s angry over this case, or any other case I’m in, please do it peacefully whenever you Protest.
0 (3m 34s):
You know, it’s just a quote. He gave a reporter and stuff like that. So what I will say, right? Oh, and by the way, he also added violence as no place. And we hope that that is not
3 (3m 45s):
Island violence has no place. And we hope that it’s not violence, although the posting is troubling.
0 (3m 51s):
So, you know, he says the, the, the post is traveling. So, you know, here are, here are my thoughts are on this, right? Because I hear you, here’s the thing. This can happen almost anywhere, right? In any city, in any country, really, where you going to have groups of people that are very upset over anything really, you know, in this case is a or allegedly a case, right? Some, some ruling on a case that it group of people do not like now what happens often is you have, I don’t know, 10 people maybe less really riled up. And then they it’s enough to get maybe their neighbors, people within their own household riled up. And now you have 20, 25 people, right?
0 (4m 34s):
That is actually still not the issue. Maybe in the, at the, at the heart of the issue. The issue is when you start essentially saying, I will do this, unless you guys do that. Right. And of course, in this case violence, right, I will go ahead and write your city, lewd your city for that matter. Unless you guys do this and that’s, what’s happening often in many of these protests, right? That turned violent, right. Where they’re out there, they’re saying their peace, right. There are demonstrating that they are, you know, in disagreement with, with whatever’s happening in their city, whatever is happening really in their country. And that’s actually still all good until you get to the point where you know, where we are going to do, like here in Providence allegedly, we’re going to do a Purge.
0 (5m 19s):
It’s not, it’s not funny at that point. And it goes to something that I’ve said before in other episodes, right? We’re we’re, people are watching too much TV, hearing, too many, you know, crappy songs, or maybe watching the wrong movies that you can say what it really JT, you going to blame it on the movies and music. Like that’s such a 90 thing, you know, otherwise, what else can you blame it on at this point? You know, what else would you say that this is contributing too, right? Is that it’s only social unrest due to police brutality. Come on, let’s wake up here. And let’s be real for a moment, right? You’re not going to tell me that every single individual author on the streets, every single individual is writing. Not that demonstrators. I have no problem with the demonstrators that, so let’s move that to the side.
0 (6m 3s):
The writers you are going to tell me about all of them have been somehow oppressed by whatever it is that they are claiming. And the, in, in many cases, this is police brutality. That to be, yes, a lot of these individuals are really opportunist, right? Again, you have some, as you say, a random number of 20 people that really have gone through some, you know, through something traumatic in their life and they get the other five, if you know, six individuals in their life, ah, that will listen to them to the point where it’s like, this is all of us, mom that I’m going to us, we’re going to go ahead and write the city. And nobody’s like, Hey, how about we don’t? How about we don’t go burn, whatever is saying, you want to burn, right. We, we stayed at home or we do our Protest and then we come back home and we, we do other avenues for, for some of the individuals out there, right?
0 (6m 49s):
Specifically those, you know, with some kind of influence, much larger than mine. It is very sad to see that some of these people are, are, are really promoting this right. In saying it’s kind of the, the, the Mo the, the moment and the limits we have to reach in order for us to, to be heard. I think that’s ridiculous. And a lot of them are saying that because this is happening in their city, right. A lot of the, you know, stars and stuff like that. And even a minor micro influencers and mention the name escapes me right now. But I mentioned the previous guy, Jesse, Jesse Castiano. So that’s the guy, you know, it’s put the head to put his ugly face here. Right. He know he, he’s a, he’s a guy that he’s a macro influencer in my opinion, but still often you’ll see him in social media, you know, promoting or at least backing.
0 (7m 33s):
Right. The fact that, Hey, we have to get to the point of, of, of this kind of civil unrest in order for us to make any kind of change. Now I understand, right. The logic behind some people are saying, yeah, we do. Because otherwise peaceful Protest really goes nowhere. I would disagree. I would strongly disagree with that. Right. But coming to the, getting to the point of, we are going to do a Purge to Purge on what per first of all, Purge of who, but others of you guys that are kind of lost. I was like, okay, well, what is the Purge? Some of you are, may not know that this is actually a movie. In fact, there’s a crappy kind of string of movies, like things like three or four movies at this point, right. We’re always Hollywood milks the crap out of these movies.
0 (8m 15s):
But anyways, it’s, it’s a series of movies where the concept is that once a year, the government of the U S allegedly again, in these movies, allows its people to pretty much do all kinds of, of violent acts, right. Including, including murder, you know, just to get it out of your system kind of thing. That’s really the idea. And then after that, you can not do anything like that. Right. Other than that, one day, that one night actually is not even the whole days at one night or else you would go to jail or something. I don’t know. The first movie I saw it was okay. I got lost where the other ones, I have not seen all the rest of them. Why? Because again, well, in fact, see, you know, in a ish movie, that’s like, Oh, okay, look at the concept.
0 (8m 59s):
It’s it’s nowhere near. Okay. I would say I’m realistic to even suggest that, to say, you know what it is, that movie was so true. It’s so, so is it that that’s a good point. Let’s just give everybody, you know, machetes and guns and everything, and just like every body at each other’s throw you all solve nothing, right. With this individual, right. Or individuals saying, let’s do a Purge of Providence. He knows you get to that point and actively promote allegedly this it’s ridiculous. And for any, any influencer, right. Saying, we’ll see, this is the, this is where we got to go. What do you, what are you talking about back to reality? Okay.
0 (9m 39s):
Back to reality, because at the end of the day of what you’re doing is people, people in that city. Right. And if this were to get out and, and, and all of a sudden sum, some moron moron’s decided to copycat, right. Cause that’s what we have nowadays. And I copycats decided to, you know what, let’s go ahead and do that in, in, in LA. Let’s do that now in New York, let’s do that now in your city right now, wherever you are at right now, here in the city and cause that’s awesome. Right? You would not think like that now for those of you, is there a single and you’re thinking you’re all in this fight tomorrow and you’re all in. You’re ready for it. You’re not, you have no idea. Most of you including Me, but at least I’m mature enough. And I think conscience enough. And I think if anything, critically capable enough to think that I would not want to be in the situation where a quote unquote Purge happens.
0 (10m 26s):
You think you are right. It’s easier to be behind your, your, your thumbs right now, right? In your room, all comfy. Most of you guys in your beds already tucked in, right. Or any where you feel comfortable and safe than to actually be in the situation where people are going after you just to go after you just, it doesn’t matter if you’re tall, short, white, black, just because someone thought that, you know, it’s going to be really cool. Let’s just do what they did in that movie. Right. It’s, it’s really sad, empathetic that it’s gotten to that point in some places. And in this case is very real, right. I don’t take it serious. Cause I think it’s just a bunch of, you know, wannabes, a bunch of people that you want to see something happen.
0 (11m 6s):
It’s usually nowadays people doing just to see a reaction. That’s really why they do things, right. It’s by the post stupid things on On tech talking on On anywhere, actually any platform. Right? Because they want to get a reaction. They want to get a, like, I, I upset about it before. Right. There are hungry for that. They want to see what people will do now. Of course there’s always those cases, right. Where you have like Columbine, tragically, right. We are, those will, those individuals were saying, we were basically replicating, you know, movies like 12 monkeys and stuff like that. From what I remember. Right. Documentary saying that the us, what those two teenagers were trying to do, the word replicate is very sad. So I understand why the police, he knows definitely looking into it while I may not think this is serious. Of course, totally see why they were.
0 (11m 48s):
Right. Right. And in for that matter right in it, I do, then I think about it in the other side of my head, on my, when I’m in a way, what if, what happened here? Like I just said, very, very scary stuff. So, you know, I just, I figured that I brought this to you and I’ll bring this to you rather, and for you to kind of like, if you have seen some of these social media posts going around and you know, you know, what’s happening. Right. All right. So let’s move on to the next story, which it’s not, it’s 90 better. It’s not a Heartlight, you know, Heidi or light-hearted story. I’m sorry, but let’s go to the next story. And that is coming out of, okay. I’m just going to, let me read through my notes here. So unfortunately, a black man was fatally shot by police who was willing a knife in the Western side of Philadelphia, which, and returned sparked violin Protest overnight would at least 30 different officers reported being injured early Tuesday.
0 (12m 45s):
I, including one Sergeant who was struck by a pickup truck, very, very tragic stuff. So let’s go real quick to that, that video from Fox news. So you can kind of have an idea of what’s happening there in the scene,
4 (12m 59s):
The riots overnight they’re 30 officers hurt and more than 30 people have been arrested after violence erupted overnight. Ainslee several stores, looted and damaged during the unrest. They’re the Protest growing now after police shot and killed a man who had a knife and wouldn’t put it down, look at this.
0 (13m 19s):
Okay. So as you guys saw there, you know, there’s, there’s definitely, you know, civil unrest. You can say, you know, that’s happening due to the outcome of what many believe, right? Hundreds of people at this point, who took to the street to believe is that the shooting of the 27 year old Walter Wallace jr is just another example of, you know, police brutality. And our police officers are out to kill black men demonstrators quickly turn violent. As some protestors were seeing throwing objects at officers. Well, at least one officer was struck again with a vehicle
5 (13m 56s):
0 (14m 3s):
In. And by the way, one of the police vehicles were also set on fire. So it definitely got very, very serious. So man, just to give you guys a little bit more of an overview here, Wallace jr. Were shot by police officers. After beef, he refused to drop a knife and was holding him towards the officers. And in fact was, was walking towards them. So, you know, let’s actually go to that video real quick.
5 (14m 34s):
4 (14m 39s):
Now officers were responding to a call about a man with a knife near 61st and locust yesterday afternoon officers opened fire. When they say the man walked towards them refusing to drop that knife. So as you see, they’re in that video,
0 (14m 52s):
Right? You, you get two officers who respond to a call right now, allegedly this call was done by the victim’s mother. Right. And they really work were called there because there was an, a man Wallace, you know, identified as a Walter Wallace jr. Who, you know, had a knife, what it was for some reason, very, you know, pissed off about something. And, you know, he he’s approached by the police officers and he’s, you know, he, he, this obeys, you know, lawful command’s, you know, he’s, he knows being told Nina for him to put, put the knife down, you know, essentially who knows what happened by the way before the, the video started rolling. Right. But according to some eyewitnesses that were saying, Hey, you know, that they were telling them, you know, that we’re trying to control a situation and got to the point where, you know, while as junior, you know, approach them with a knife, as you saw there.
0 (15m 41s):
And, you know, they, they had no nor choice, you know, according to the police officers and to shoot the man. So there was a, before we get into my eyes, to my thoughts, there is something that my, one of my producers here wrote for me in response to this, of course, Twitter is on fire, but something very particular, right. Which, which grabbed my attention mainly because it has to do with, with kids not to put it, put it here real quick. The pictures in here to my left is a, a, a picture, a tweet from a Samantha Mellum Melamed melamine. Okay. So I read West Philly, chase Jones brought his three-year-old son chase to the front of the police line at 55 and pine to confront police with riot shields.
0 (16m 33s):
This is what racism looks like. He told his son eye to eye with a white police officer where the white officer take a look, what do you think of this response? That is the way she writes, you know it, and from then as we’re why I started really collecting my thoughts. Right? Well, first let’s address this, this picture, first of all, regardless of what had happened here with, with Wallace jr. And the police shooting to bring a child for that matter of three-year-old write to try to make some kind of statement, some kind of point at night, right? I’m in front of a police officer where things are re are already on edge.
0 (17m 18s):
You don’t know who else is out. There is thinking of a, like, we sit in the first story, right? Starting to Purge or something stupid like that. And to bring your child just because you’re that passionate, angry over what is happening. I’m I’m sorry, but you’re, you’re, you’re doing it. That child, the disservice you’re putting him in danger. And for that matter, you’re being irresponsible as a parent, you can be upset or you walk in, you know, you can’t, you can be a single parent or this, this, this individual, all right. Chase Jones can be a single father. I’m thinking about the, the, the most, I would say reasonable scenario in which he here, he feels passionate to bring a three-year-old out in the middle of the night.
0 (18m 0s):
Right? Two, first of all, I go to the front of the police line, right? Where you don’t know how police officers are gonna respond. And you know, at the same things like this is what racism looks like. I mean, there’s so many things wrong with that, you know, to, to say that to, you know, for a Torres child, you know, it goes against everything that many people screaming at you. It is a racism is taught. Racism is taught my friends. It is right. I know I’ve sat on that before. And even in my video, right, this one right here about are, are racists, you know, are, are Mexicans races. I S I M I did the video in Spanish, but still you get to a point why? Because I believe, I believe it, is there some stuff that I said in there that goes right along with this is to bring a three-year-old child in arms.
0 (18m 43s):
You don’t have a police officer, right. Specifically pick your white officer. Look, you know, look is, is a three-year-old son, chase sec, chip Jace. This is racism three year old. He doesn’t know why the first step well racism really is. I mean, most of us adults really are. Sometimes I have issues with you saying, is I races, is that, imagine that three-year old in the middle of the night, when that child should be in bed, you know, I’m going back to my, my whole thinking about what led him, you know, what passion drove him. Let’s just pretend here, you know, that our chase Jones is, is, you know, a single father, you know, that’s like, you know what? I can’t believe this is happening in my neighborhood. You know, because obviously he’s in Philadelphia, you know, I can’t believe this is happening in my backyard.
0 (19m 27s):
You know, let’s just pretend for a second that he’s even, you know, in somehow, somehow related to, to, to Walter Wallace right. And he’s, he’s like, you know what? It is my job. Why is it or something, you know, you still don’t take your child out there in the middle of the night where the tensions, tensions already running really high is to prove the point and, and hoping, I dunno, maybe to end up and one of the suites, which congratulations. Yes, you did. Right. It’s a responsible as a parent, as a parent. I can say that now, as someone that is trying to see, you know, him being upset over something that maybe definitely affects him, right. Again, I don’t know if he’s related to, to, to all his junior, but it just pretend he is.
0 (20m 7s):
I feel you, you know, find a babysitter, you know, or, or Protest the next day, by the way, to not have your child out there. Right. And go on and do your Protest. I’ve said it before. I’ve said it before On tweets. I’ve said it before on videos, people that want to Protest have the right to protest. And that is something that is undisputable go in. Protest I’m all for protesting. Its when you start the writing, the looting and putting children in danger like this potentially right. It’s where, when I’m out, I’m out. No, I, I’m not going to sit there and condone any of that behavior. Ryan say yeah, no, definitely. This is how we need to get to right now.
0 (20m 49s):
This is ridiculous right now going into my opinion about what happened here with my sister for Wallace jr. It is, it is unfortunate that yes, another LIFE specifically another, another black LIFE is lost. What is not unfortunate is, you know, the scene rather the unnecessary riots. Cause they are give it to you here straight. You know, a lot of you are going to disagree, you know, because to say, Hey, somebody that was willing a knife, right? Whether are you telling me you are as a kitchen knife, a butter, a butter knife, or it was a really extremely sharp knife, right?
0 (21m 35s):
It is unfortunate. Right? To see that people are choosing to burn down yet another city to say, Hey, this is someone that got shot and shouldn’t have been shot wrong, very wrong. That is something that I don’t agree with. I cannot agree with no matter what angle and I, and I read a lot of times, this is a man that potentially, you know, has had, had has a potential. Right. Cause I don’t know, but based on all evidence that I have, I see right now still has the, the potential to have some kind of backing in saying maybe the guy was mentally ill.
0 (22m 18s):
Maybe the guy wasn’t in a lot of stress, I don’t know. Right. That’s a story still has a lot more unknown. Right? So there is the, the, the, the, the possibility that too, that there will be something that will back the individual and we’ll say, Hey, this is why he was acting the way you want. So there is that, however that without knowing that just only what we know now, it’s on man. Listen to me, man, that had a nice, as you saw and is approaching two officers for that matter. And I, for now you shouldn’t approach officers like that. What, what kind of country do you want to live in? Where are you essentially just, you know, I’ll get to flip officer’s off and get to go to what one-on-one with them.
0 (23m 4s):
Take your badge off and let’s go at it. You know, what, what kind of country do you want to live in? Where it’s like, yeah, that’s normal. That’s okay. Let me tell you something. Videos of people that do that in countries like Mexico. Now you have to say, well, I actually took some photos of really nasty offers is in Mexico. Hold on, hold on. I’ve seen a hell of a lot more videos of people acting fools, trying to act like they’re above police officers thinking, you know themselves and say, no, get out. You know what I am, you know, I am PR sometimes, you know, alluding to like I’m with people. You know what I mean? Yeah. Yeah. We can disappear. The whole family can of paint and officers are, Oh, well damn you should, you know, you sure it kinda started with that.
0 (23m 49s):
Nevermind go. You don’t want to live in a country like that. I mean, I know he’s I don’t think you do. Right. So for anybody again, so far with what we have to say, JT, you is a butter knife. And I don’t know that it was, there is nothing, you know, to indicate that it was, but for anybody to say, well, it wasn’t even that sharp period, the knife or not, you don’t want to live in a country where we make it. We, we normalize it. A man approaching officers like that, especially after disobeying lawful orders of saying, Hey, stop. What you’re doing. Is there a police brutality in this country? Yes. Yes. Period. All right.
0 (24m 29s):
What did they say nowadays? Full stop. Yes. They’re is there a police brutality? Okay. They’re there is a problem where many different departments throughout the country have abuser power. Okay. Nothing to argue there is that the case in every single unfortunate police encounter know, is that the case here so far for the evidence that we have? No, not in my opinion. Alright. And I guess the, the, the, the end thought here is why, why does it have to get to the point where we burned down in every city where you think, I think that some man, some individual, right, right now, it just happens to be that, you know, in this particular case, in this particular story, a black man shot, even though he is, he is trying to, to attack officers, but okay.
0 (25m 30s):
You shot and in a way that lets go burn the city, let’s go, let’s go to serve everybody else’s piece. Even though we know so far, some of these facts, if, if by the way, okay, this would have been a situation. Something like the Rodney King, right? A case where there’s clear evidence of extreme police brutality. Even after the case, the police officers pretty much walked in. I understand why, why the riots that happened in LA happened? Like it’s hard to argue against those riots, even though it’s very unfortunate. And I stand firm on saying, w you know, people don’t want that in their city. I at least can be more understanding, not supportive.
0 (26m 12s):
Don’t confuse them, but understanding them damn. That’s, Rick’s still very unfortunate that that happened, but okay, damn right. It’s hard to argue against, you know, that much where there’s clear video, is that gonna, you know, how long it was man in the floor and they’re just wailing on him. Right. And then they still walk. Yeah. It’s, I still, you know, we all feel a little angry over everything is actually quite a bit of angry over it. Right. To see that that happened. This case, not the same, not the same George Floyd, the knee on his neck for that long. And, and, and POS didn’t get off.
0 (26m 52s):
Even after George wasn’t moving anymore. Not the same, not the same. I don’t care what you argue. Right. I mean, I don’t know what world we live in for those people that are actually out there saying, it’s a saying, we are going to Protest Byrne the city. What are you doing for that matter? There’s no, there hasn’t even been a case on this. Right. There hasn’t even been in kind of verdict saying, okay, hypothetically, hypothetically, we come across all these other evidence of this man and wielding a fake knife, a fake child’s play kitchen knife. And he was death. And maybe, you know, had some kind of mental, mental in this case, this capitation or mental, the mental problem, whatever.
0 (27m 35s):
Right. Where he wasn’t, you know, he wasn’t understanding what the cops were saying. I’m all riled up. Now. You can’t even fricking talk. Okay. There may be. We can say, Hey. And the cops knew that the cops had been there previously. They knew that this individual was not able under his circumstance to respond to their lawful command. Okay. All right. Now we’re getting a different picture, right? Hey, they were on trial and they were led off. Okay. Dear friend, picture, write the riot while I still don’t support them, I’ll be like, okay, damn it. It’s hard to argue against them here.
0 (28m 15s):
It happened pretty much 24 hours, apart from each other. Those are the beaters that most people have seen. And it’s like, Nope, let’s go right into burning to say, you know, this is, this is a, I bring these stories up because I hope that, you know, I hope they never do, but they are, if they’ve ended up happening in your city, you know, you’re the kind of the individual that you wait for facts, you know, you wait for all the facts. Not because someone in your household, just like I was saying earlier, right. Somebody in your household is not like triggering you. And like, yeah, let’s go. What has happened to us? And he’s got, and you’re like, Oh my God. Yeah. We know that, okay, let’s go. And you just get up and go. And then you’re like, Oh, hold on. Let me bring a little Bobby Bobby. And I’m going to S you know, don’t do that because that’s how you have more tragedy happened.
0 (29m 1s):
