You know -- walked outside.
Well not so here -- harassment in New York I just assume.
But I'm -- up whatever but I'm being recorded.
-- -- -- because -- -- become people might nor am I mean just.
-- just assume whatever I'm senator and has some potential wind -- plundered your -- -- Pretty much and I -- I think at least as far as where I am and feel you go on the Internet and you know that the companies that you look at there are tracking.
So I certainly can imagine that four in the interest of national security which is really.
Where are going here that they have the ability and are able to track our calls and as a walk down that people.
No one and don't they can find -- very easily.
Saw Saturday Plano east is a good question -- -- -- southern drought or bad -- -- tough question -- but if we look at really simplistic really what we're talking about here we're not talking about having what we're saying listened to it is more like taking every call that's out there.
And dumping it all into a huge computer data system and then when they need to to take the numbers to try and track in this case you know terrorism.
And I don't think that's such a bad thing especially if there is proof which the government says that there is that he has been used to -- lives mean none of us want things on the scale of obviously in 9/11 -- -- smaller scales.
Such as you know they can actually see that this program has stopped people such as there was a a young man here in New York who said that he was going to place.
Backpack bombs in the subway system only got him with a correctly electronic surveillance and we want it just for that type of thing.
13 though -- like just going on before.
-- course there was before September 11 but.
I don't not -- normal on the scale of but there was one.
Yeah I mean of course there was and a lot of people said look that there is no controls the government isn't going to anyone get permission well guess what now they do they go to a classified court they have to put a court ordered him to get an order they put an application in the the court approves it or doesn't approve it is reviewed every three months so it's not like this is happening and nobody knows about it -- the public don't know.
But again that is is -- -- that we can and should all have but there was nothing illegal going on -- was being done.
It is an accidental -- our talk -- that sort of neglect Lasik.
-- is nurtured Kings County district attorney's office.
Home -- him.
Although others got her blew the whistle on Lucent SA stuff most notably real tournament.
Should it be prosecuted.
He should be prosecuted or showed what -- Well -- investigation in its early stages recently and all the facts that if if what they're saying is true just on the fact that he.
Without authorization disclosed classified documents right there you know every government employee and contractor that has the type of security clearance that he had is warned and told.
You have this but you must treat it with the utmost care.
People cannot on their own unilaterally are on their own decide who they're going to disclose this to because they do or don't like policies there are very specific.
Ways to go about if you think that something is being done wrong okay you can blow the whistle -- go to congress -- can go to inspector general Eaton goatee.
Upper echelons of -- organization get comfortable but he does it's not up to him to decide.
What can and can't be disclosed especially the potentially puts people at risk.
-- is taken refuge.
In China imports -- which apparently.
-- -- -- some potential to develop into some sort of.
Issue them -- don't just tried to extradite somebody -- It does and that might be what he's hoping for.
But I don't see it happening you know he went to Hong Kong we have a treaty with Hong Kong for extradition its means that we can trade are prisoners are people charged with.
Crimes back and forth they do and they have worked well with our government before.
And we're looking at a criminal act analysts they can show that it is politically motivated that we're trying to get Ambac chances are that they'll get him back and I don't see this -- being the one that China is going to want to create an international incident with the United States at this point over emerged in the -- -- -- -- -- -- talking McConnell.
Said he had both a total -- may not adults I think -- as the most.
Noted that the rules are reports that they had checked out of the hotel and I just a shame -- demanded.
You're saw a lot of -- yourself for -- prosecute a lot of room.
All of us government sentiment checked out and -- just sneaked out -- neurologist -- and dimensions.
I think you're reading maybe he's himself -- too many spy movies at this point you know -- -- doesn't think that there watching him in Hong Kong I'm sure that they.
Are so whether he checks that are sneaks out they are I'm pretty confident aware of his whereabouts.
And why he chose Hong Kong as opposed to another country that might be less likely to work with -- government I'm not sure I mean.
Did he think he was doing the right thing -- -- that remains to be seen but regardless you know why do you give a playbook to our enemy -- at least the potential to let them know we're doing there are a lot of other ways to go -- to go about.
Saying this isn't right if that's what he believes.
You know there is very -- obviously our worldwide.
Editor vigorous debate.
On both sides of the senators say.
-- -- -- and I'm just.
But your argument sounds reasonable to -- and and poverty.
If our order and -- should not have been asked him.
Opposition of obsession that bit about that seems reasonable.
But there are reasonable people.
Don't flexible -- -- wonder -- -- -- like -- Alabama was no don't do so you don't.
There's a constitutional lawyer image there is a conservative.
Or talk show host on a marginal reachable one.
And our other reasonable people on to our rural alarmed at what all -- I agree to me it is a great debate it is -- understandable debate you're looking at privacy interests vs security interests and you of course and I can go with both sides NC had it -- makes cents.
But I think that when you have to look at the scales and look at some sort of compromise and I think here.
That's what you potentially end up with you know we're not talking we -- talking about the collection of mass amounts of information and I can understand how people are very comfortable with that.
But you look at what we potentially give up if we don't use these type of measures to get to the people that.
Want to harm our country that want to harm -- citizens before they're able to do that.
Portugal are are talking about a -- but a lot of cigarettes and Jessica Stern and hunter in Brooklyn.
On other than ever in Minnesota don't -- -- -- -- on Martan twelve George Zimmerman.
-- apparently shot total -- Lombard and and on.
On this wondering what it fisheries -- and.
Well the issue the crux of the trial is going to be -- What happened in those moments when we all know that George Zimmerman did shoot and kill -- on Martin's that's not going to be the issue it's going to be wasn't an issue of self defense the prosecution saying it's murder.
His defense team mr.
Zimmerman dispensed -- -- saying no he was defending himself he believed he was about to be killed and that is why he fired the shot so it's all going to come down to those couple of minutes and what happened during that time.
You must have prosecuted.
A number because of -- of -- suspect.
Yet in self defense is something that comes up a lot in these cases the differences is that in Florida they have.
Let -- keep hearing about as a stand your ground law which basically means that if -- under threat you don't have to retreat before you can react to save yourself.
So that's what's going to come into play that's a little different however and a big thing that people should keep in mind that when they talk about the stand -- -- grant if you are the aggressor.
If you -- the initial person pursuing someone is Timmerman was pursuing Martin that right there that can take stand to grant added out of the ballpark for him and that's -- And here and there are -- our New York.
All the -- race course one of the big issues.
There's some New -- terribly department's stop and frisk policy person -- public questions one is an effective.
And and what is your opinion of it.
You want to talk about a big debate here here's another one and there's definitely people on both sides you talk about stop and frisk and yeah I work with the police department every day and -- -- who live in this city and I certainly want them to do what they -- to try to protect people wanna do you know that people walk around with guns and stop and frisk has been very effective.
In helping to get out those guns mean obviously you cannot over reached they cannot and should not be used for racial profiling which is little Lotta people see the issue is.
So again it's a real debate but I don't know that people that are having the debate all the time actually.
No the faction is easy buzz words and there's easy ways -- people can.
Start to -- about this is that good system writes a -- system.
But what about the numbers and we do get guns off the streets there are areas that are targeted more we have to look at are -- being target because of crimes or because of the the racial make up which obviously is something that shouldn't be time.
-- Sasha got a toward a forward to call insured for shouldn't let us.
