Right here's one of the stories of the day Chad Johnson just got thirty days behind bars for this flap.
On his male lawyers behind in the courtroom the former NFL star was being guilty to a probation violation in a domestic violence case involving his former wife.
A plea deal would have spared him jail time if he only had behaved that the judge rejected after -- -- ESPN's Stephen A Smith says Johnson has no one to blame.
You -- to why it costs are -- you -- was enough.
You are a number.
You didn't know -- -- a court case -- domestic violence.
And not get the outlook state.
I don't know what is.
All right season.
We ask you -- I've -- says men due back that we on the field and in the locker room however is a veteran law enforcement officer of over twenty years -- find his actions to be disrespectful.
And ignorance in this situation -- -- Deborah says I -- 58 year old mom and grandmother passed victim of domestic violence but even I think the judge got angry and used her power to punish -- expects.
And Bob says I've always -- I wish being stupid was against the law thank you judge thirty days for being stupid.
You gotta love it I want -- -- his opinion on this to.
I'm not the playing field -- -- and the judge went over the top and I think that we're only talking about it because it is a female judge what do you think.
I don't know I mean Brian do -- is to each other all the time I've seen that in office after -- -- -- -- it's not like after the big segments with that terrible odds and curvy couch is seen a lot of them have any idea to minorities and honesty -- -- -- the -- Yes exactly what got guys obviously you walk into a courtroom.
You know the rules of the judge are the rules of the road as being kind of arbitrary to get -- got to stand up on the judge blocks that.
So yeah I get used to the judge as an enormous amount of power and it seems not sitting here it's kind of ridiculous.
-- -- -- judge that I would have gotten now but.
And that's just I don't get a lot of -- really you're citing that he -- -- head butted his wife after one day of marriage.
He then right we'll have got to do it any nation right had a deal in the works any totally screwed and up and might essence of this is that.
A lot of times celebrity's.
Players whatever they -- -- get the sense in society that they never have.
And -- two discrete questions all right and I would agree with you on the issue of the domestic violence we're talking about -- discrete issue now.
Which is a a slight tap -- -- I think you guys ran the video -- -- -- -- not been to 12 I think I thought it.
It wasn't like he did the dance my -- -- -- did it on different data.
-- back -- on the floor ahead.
It was small thanks so I thought I I didn't -- -- I agree with you that domestic -- obviously incredible.
-- serious but -- I am this what I haven't given that now let me that's a little bit not -- you know I was there was nobody there courtroom Lorena was in response to the judge said we happy with your representation.
They said yeah -- -- but.
That's how guys expressed there have analyzed and let them I guess there was a thank you -- -- -- look I mean I -- stamina and -- meetings.
-- -- you're you're right about that what's the let's talk a little bit about.
Edwards snowed in the -- -- -- leaker is now on the loose last we saw on me was at that five star hotel in Hong Kong now he's out.
But the big question is.
-- traitor or is he a hero interestingly enough the guy who co founded Home Depot yesterday can lingo and said I don't Neil Cavuto show.
We -- to throw this guy a party and thank him for helping protect America's privacy rights.
We can't can't I like channel I like catalog I think I'm on -- in this case we have to learn a little bit more I'm not trying to evade the question back.
A lot a lot of unanswered questions out there -- how did -- get this information.
At his level as this analysts level in Hawaii in this kind of satellite office it's unclear how -- got this information number one number till.
I I for one -- glad we have this information.
But at the same time he could have indeed looks like he had violated.
The terms of his agreement to work in this contract for capacity with the NSA so he -- both be libel criminally and civilly.
And god give us information that we're glad as Americans who still believe in this constitution.
We're glad that we have so both things that I could and it be -- -- -- But Laura we can never have top secret programs if the whole country knows about them but just the nature of it we -- representatives to go to the intelligence committee.
And they exposed to be looking all right -- best interest that's where -- system works now -- -- wants to have an open discussion about our -- surveillance methods writes oh cents.
I think I think one of the problems here Dana Milbank wrote about this in the Washington Post that at one of the problems is is that that we don't have real grip.
Informed oversight on Capitol Hill with the exception of Ron Wyden and maybe Mark Udall.
It's many people including air cancer perhaps -- we're too willing to give the government total cart -- -- carte Blanche that's.
And not ask the questions that need to be asked so.
In the absence of informed oversight where you actually go.
The extra mile to get the briefings -- -- to learn more about these programs.
The people's liberties can be -- -- I think in this case they could have -- and again we we need to let us learn more about that yet but I'm -- comfortable with the threat to US do you think that this case is similar to the story about the wire acts.
-- a lot of people are linking the two together.
And I think I see a difference where the iris is actually targeting specific people in this case we were all being watched.
Well again where all they watch standstill in the future you're accused of some wrongdoing the element which may or may not be valid Gretchen.
And then the government says -- you know something we have this meta data at that it's actually very valuable I learned that yesterday on my radio show from an NSA whistle blower with what the NSA for thirty years.
Who said people don't understand how valuable.
This meta data is what what great information this gives us -- analysts.
At the NSA so retroactively.
Information can be used that was -- collected in this dragnet fashion by the US government that is not the way the US justice system.
And our constitution is supposed to operate and I wish we had people on Capitol Hill more of them.
For more informed and more curious about the abuse of federal power it would exposed to be working for us and not the other way around.
Well they're gonna have some hearings later today behind closed doors and where they can explain how they've been eyeball and all of us for while.
What is your opinion on this as well behind closed doors behind closed door that they -- What the Obama administration now extraordinarily has said that girls of any age actually I would imagine men as well.
Could have access to the morning after pill.
You don't have for awhile it's like seventy had to be at least seventy than us no.
Parental consent as well what do you think about this.
-- well and it's a good deal for had -- files good deal for people who commit statutory rape against young girls.
And if if if mothers and fathers across this country here this and I think well yes.
My daughter or her boyfriend or her rapists can go out to a pharmacy and get a -- you know hormone pills to give a little girl.
We don't really know the long term -- a note of the spiking her dropping a little girls.
-- and Medicaid so young woman or a little girls -- hormone levels it's how great this is girls can't you know I think I would say it all the time they can't get -- -- they can't take it.
At village school without without parental permission yet they can go into a pharmacy -- this brave new world of of women's equality and quote reproductive health.
And get and get a morning after pill I -- I think empowers man -- a lot of abuse -- he's not to sign -- showed driver let his pursuit offensive go figure.
Yeah I'm -- -- I have a great rest of the week we'll see you again next week they got --
