Officer Geoffrey Redd, who was doing his duty, trying to clear a homeless man out of the library, was shot and later died when being confronted by Torence Jackson, Jr, age 28 of Indianapolis.  For 15 days, the community rallied around Redd for his survival.  He was director of security at his church and attentive to his community.  Torence Jackson was also killed by Redd's partner.  Jackson had a long criminal history without having to spend a lot of time in prison for each crime.  He never rehabilitated.  This was a Black on Black crime and our co host is wondering why there was not more outcry.  There was a lot of public support for Geoffrey Redd and prayers for his recovery.  The killer, Torence Jackson, Jr., had committed over 20 crimes since he was 19 and hardly got proper sentencing, even for more serious crimes like arson and resisting arrest.  He was a failure of the correctional system and ended a decent police officer's life.

We also talk about the trans teacher in Ontario, Canada named Kayla Lemieux, who claims she has a medical condition called gigantomastia, a condition that causes excessive breast growth due to enlargement of individual cells.  There are conflicting stories stating, the Z cup breasts are prosthetics and neighbors have been seeing he/she walking around the neighborhood in regular men's clothing with no breasts.  Either way, it is disturbing.  Parents of the school district are demanding a revision in the dress code similar to what student expectations are.  Teachers should be held accountable, too, to a mandatory dress code.
