Oxhorn’s Free Fallout 4 Settlement Happiness Calculator:
My Fantasy Novel:
ALL of my settlements and their status:
Hello ladies and gentlemen this is Oxhorn And today's short video is on the Pawlowski Preservation Shelters from Fallout 4. You know these things the big blue containers you see dotting Boston. You open them up and sometimes find goodies and almost always find a dead body. These shelters are courtesy of the Pawlowski Preservation Services company. Before the great war they were in direct competition with Vault-Tec. Seems there's been a lot of talk these days about vault life. But, not all of us have the luxury to spend so much on something that frankly we may not actually need. They created these small shelters which they marketed as an affordable alternative to living in a vault. Unlike those other guys the sensible folks at Pulaski Preservation Services have created an affordable line of personal protection products to make sure no one gets left behind. Personal protection there when you actually need it. We see them in Fallout 3 where they look slightly different apparently the ones in DC weren't painted blue they had a metal finish and they also didn't protect from explosions very well. The ones in Fallout 4 are much larger. They're painted this bright blue and they protect from explosions. However neither of the Chambers actually protect from radiation. Here I am using the console I'm going to summon a rad storm and watch you'll see that I take radiation damage. This might help explain why when you open up the chambers you almost always find a Skeleton. Sometimes even a living feral ghoul. It appears that the shelters were a form of snake oil that was sold to the pre-war residents of the United States during their fear of Nuclear annihilation. It didn't actually work, it wouldn't really shelter you from radiation. But the Pawlowski Preservation Services company saw a great opportunity to make a little bit of money. The name of the Pawlowski Chambers might come from a man named Edward Crockett Pawlowski who was the United States Forest Service Ranger based in Wallace, Idaho. Ed Pulaski was famous for saving all but five of his 45 man firefighting crew during the great Idaho fire of August 20th 1910 He and his men were trying to fight a fire about five miles south from Wallace on the West fork of Placer Creek when suddenly the fire broke out of control and overwhelmed his entire 45 man crew of firefighters. Pulaski led his men to find shelter in a nearby abandoned prospect mine. As the mine filled with smoke the firefighters began to panic. Pulaski drew a pistol and threatened to shoot anyone who passed him. Two horses died from smoke inhalation. But the rest of the men lay it on the floor of the mine and managed to survive the great big blowup fire of 1910 thanks to Pulaski. It's possible that the makers of fallout 3 which introduced the pawlowski preservation chambers to us were inspired by this story. The analogy is an obvious one and if the name of Pulaski was well known to the citizens of the United States of America then it would have made for great marketing. Perhaps he was a well-known hero. In case of Nuclear holocaust head to your local Pawlowski chamber for just like Ed pulaski saved his men during the great fire of 1910 The Pawlowski Chamber will save you from Nuclear annihilation. Remember, that's Pulaski and preservation shelters simply there when you actually need them exact change only. It also comes lists a little bit of typical Bethesda Irony even though Edie pulaski saved 40 of his men two horses died and so did five of his men even though they were protected in the the mine. Similarly the pawlowski chamber might protect you from explosions at least the ones in Boston. But when it comes to radiation the very thing they were built to protect you from you're better off in a refrigerator. And there you have it ladies and gentlemen the Pawlowski Preservation shelter. A unique oddity on the East coast of the United States of America which I don't believe ever made it to the west coast saying is that they're not found in New Vegas. A quirky Little Device complete with plumbing exhaust and emergency respiratory gear but that still killed every single person who ever tried to use it. I hope you liked this short little video I was inspired to make it after seeing these things all over the commonwealth and wondering just what exactly is the story behind this thing. I'd love to hear your comments. I read every comment you guys write on my videos And I respond to the best ones. Are there any little oddities like this that you'd like to see explored? Would you like me to lift the hood up behind the lure of anything else? I'm happy to take a look for you and to produce a video on it. Let me know in the comments below.

I think the Daily Mail is a wonderful initiative and we are very grateful to both the Daily Mail Foundation unsporting hland for selecting us to be one of the pilot areas for the rollout of this program potentially across all schools in the UK it's for England we're really excited to be working with the Daily Mail Foundation and also Hart Sports Partnership to get as many schools as possible signing up and delivering each week well we introduced a daily mile about a year ago and I've heard so much about it from other schools and the benefits of this and I thought it's the perfect thing for us to to introduce and use our grounds and to do something different for the children it makes me feel a lot more relaxed concentrated and more focused and ready to learn it helps us burn off any of the energy that we might have any day I've noticed that the children are a lot more concentrated when they come back in in the afternoon it's just so fun everyone can do it we can do it in anywhere done due to your own pace I like you know with my brother if we were to describe the Daily Mail in three words it would be healthy fun and social what I would say to any school looking to introduce the Daily Mail is that just do it it's very easy you don't need resources you don't need time there is now a growing body of evidence which supports the notion that physical activity physical education leading to improve physical literacy is an excellent building block for our young people I would urge all schools in hartfordshire to embrace this fantastic initiative and I've been very lucky in that the the staff have embraced it the children love it one of the core principles of the daily mile is fun and enjoyment it's free and accessible for every school and it's inclusive of every child if you're feeling tired or stressed when you go out and do the daily mile it helps raise your brain up so you can concentrate better and make your work understand it I load a daily mile because I get to spend time outdoors with my friends we believe there's a real opportunity in Hartford here to get more schools signed up and delivering so please have a look at how you can get involved and contact apart sports partnership you

you this is CBC here and now two teams want to put a basketball team in here but there's a problem one of those groups has a deal with the city and the other one has a deal with the league I'll explain more coming up on here and now plane crash in Patty's pond I feel over the crash that as the prize increases so do the demands on organizers taking on a life of its own now follow the rules for Fido and get a free coffee sometimes it can just be thank you very much hot hot heat splitting the rocks right across the province over the next couple of days I'll let you know how long it lasts coming up we begin in Gould's where the chase the ace fundraiser is ramping up in a big way this morning organizers met with key players from the city the province and emergency services yeah they're now facing the challenge of holding a major public event every week until someone draws that ace and claims the million-dollar prize here are now Zack Gowdy has the latest when you're selling half a million tickets it helps to get an early start on the stapling this morning volunteers from the local 4-h club were busy bundling stacks of 5050 tickets a job now too big for the church to handle we started about five weeks ago when we realized that there was a need that the church really couldn't handle the amount of tickets that they were selling yesterday we were here at 8:30 and we were here until about quarter after 11:00 last night and we were back here again this morning at 8:30 and I'd say pretty much all throughout today we've had between 20 and 30 parents sitting across the table stapling away organizers are grateful for all the helping hands now that this chase the ACE has blown up beyond their wildest expectations when we started this we hope we hope to get maybe 10 12 weeks out of it just to you know have a small fundraiser we never thought it would get to this it's taken on a life of its own now the chase has now gone on for 40 weeks there's more than a million dollars in the jackpot and game days are equivalent to holding a fair-sized summer festival every Wednesday night this morning organizers met with all the key players the city the province the police the Special Events Advisory Committee been meeting almost on a weekly basis lately about this event it's turned into something very very major so every week we need to take the information in conjunction with the RNC and our traffic department and and look at what needs to be done next week one of the big issues discussed is cell service with so many people in the area it's nearly impossible to make a call or send a text Bell Aliant has now installed new equipment to give the cellular network a boost other improvements for this week's game include porta-potties and to satellite reporting stations to make it easier for the lucky winners to identify themselves another issue is that emergency services personnel are already booked for other big summer events like the upcoming royal Saint John's regatta now st. kevin's parish says that if chase the ACE is still going there will be no game on regatta day it's the right thing to do and there are so many other charitable organizations who depend on that regard for their fundraising we would never want to interfere with that it's a move that underscores just how big this chase the ACE has become and there could be more like it the elusive ace is hiding among 12 cards still in the deck at st. Kevin's meaning the game could go on until October zach Gowdy CBC News gules a local pilot is recovering from a plane crash today his homemade ultralight aircraft went down on an island in patty's pond yesterday evening today crews were cleaning up the wreckage the pilot was alone in his two-seater plane when it crashed landed around 7 p.m. last night the man's injuries are not believed to be serious police say he went to hospital yesterday with cuts and bruises voters on the pond brought him to shore almost immediately here in aus Megan McCabe was at the scene this afternoon that's where she met up with Ray Jaco an experienced pilot who was one of who was with the man injured in the crash just hours before he took off ray you were saying that you were working on this plane no I was working yeah we're doing a little bit of cosmetics that work with that with the owner not on this claim on his other plane tell me about that tell me about Sunday well I like I said I went I went down flying I was down without the st. Mary's Bay to look for salmon and I was only gone about an hour and a half and when I got back my firm over for crashed out so and when I did land and the the rnc and research and rescue and fire department well here what did you see when you flew over I just saw the wreckage because he was already one of the other pilots on the pond had gone out and gotten him they happened to be at the pond and had a seadoo already moving when that happened so they went out immediately and brought it back and as he do do you know how he's doing I have been able to I didn't want to impose upon his wife but I've tried to reach Lee sunup and if I had been able to get ahold to him but from what I've been hearing from for a friends of theirs he's coming along he's in hospital and he'd got a few scrapes and bruises and things like this and that's to be expected when you when you end up in a plane crash and are these home handmade homemade planes very common there well here they are there's quite a few and there's some people who are building aircraft now so we have a lot of good builders here in this area interesting it seems a little scary in my mind to make your own plane and take off in it well these guys know what they're doing you know they're they're not putting just they have to go by certain certain specs they have to follow Jaco says the ultralight aircraft that crashed here just after takeoff yesterday is a lot like this homemade ultralight aircraft which the owner built a few years ago and how goes he's a very skilled builder now as for what happened to cause yesterday's crash the Transportation Safety Board is investigating Megan McCabe CBC News Patty's pond the RCMP is still investigating an ATV accident in Bonavista over the weekend that claimed the life of a 13 year old girl the early indications are that the three young teenagers were riding in a side-by-side when the incident happened on Saturday ATV accidents involving young people are never welcome news for people like Rick Noseworthy who heads up the Avalon Trailway Association he says people in this province need to pay more attention to the safety regulations required when operating all-terrain vehicles it's very tragic the fact that this is affected you know two or three families a young child did and it's so preventable well as you can see by these machines you know they're every bit as big as this Ranger pickup and when you look at it your parents would never think of giving their child a pickup to drive at 13 and say here just go and play but then some parents give them this side by side and say go play follow up now to a CBC investigates story from 2014 about a rental scam in central Newfoundland this landlord entered guilty pleas to fraud charges earlier this month Darlene wheeler was accused by tenants of renting space in this skander home the problem was wheeler didn't actually own the house according to court documents one of the victims is a former tenant who spoke to CBC three years ago wheeler is due back in court in September for a pre-sentencing report the finance minister is breathing a sigh of relief tonight too big rating agencies have kept the provinces credit rating stable one of those companies SMP had warned the outlook was negative but it now believes it's stable if the agencies had cut the provinces credit rating borrowing money would have become more expensive I was pleased that they removed us from negative outlook I think that's a belief in their part that the plan that we have in place for controlling government costs is one that they can support and you know while we continue to have a significant deficit per capita and debt per capita I'm pleased that the rating agencies believe that the work that we're doing is going incrementally in the right direction basketball fans in st. John's thought their prayers were answered last week the National Basketball League of Canada announced on Twitter Friday night that st. John's had been awarded a team but it appears the details of the deal are still in play mile one Center mark well it's not exactly a slam-dunk yet but it seems that the news that st. John's is gonna get a brand-new basketball professional basketball team here is getting more confusing as the minutes go by the National League tweeted Friday that a team has been awarded to st. John's but it didn't answer the question who will operate that franchise and the city's response didn't clear things up it said it has nothing to report regarding a deal to use the mile one Center and today things got even more tangley well the National Basketball League of Canada seems to have a deal with a different proponent that we have a deal with which is disappointing and kind of mysterious really you heard him right Hickman says it appears the National Basketball League of Canada has a deal to operate a team in st. John's with one group and st. John's Sports & Entertainment has a deal to lease mile one Center to another group Hickman says the city is trying to speak with the National League to try to straighten this out dealing with another proponent who we're not sure who that person is that company is and they have no deal with the city and as far as we know they're not locally owned now Hickman says the city had a fair deal to lease mile one to a local group he says it didn't include a large subsidy from the city Hickman hopes the city can reach a similar deal with the outside operator hoping to bring basketball here but you have to be fair to the city in your dealings you have to pay your way if you're gonna rent the building now this afternoon CBC did speak with the league it said it will have more to say about this later this week as for the fans there's still hope but they're gonna have to wait for awhile to find out of this team we'll get a new basketball this city will get a new basketball team now if it does start if that does work out this city will have a team in November it looks like live in Saint John's I'm Mark Quinn for hearing now you can see from that shot out there it's a beautiful night to be outside and if the weather was always like this they wouldn't need that arena court would not be something we Newfoundland yeah well it's a lovely night to go for a drive as well and you know some people are more passionate about cars than others and you could say that the members of the Newfoundland antique and classic car club are one of the most passionate ones of all that's right and today CBC Radio's cross talk celebrated antique car month and here now isn't actually painted was there Greg Morel has had as 1949 Plymouth special deluxe since he was a teenager at 16 years of age there wasn't a lot of money at home so who either had to make do with what you had so I took my driver's tests on this vehicle when I was 16 years of age and I can tell you when the examiner came out and looked at it we did a complete inspection that everything worked and I got my driver's license first test to others being a part of the Newfoundland antique and classic car club is about simply a passion for cars and nostalgia Bob Ford was on holiday in Massachusetts when he saw a 1958 Edsel citation in a buy and sell magazine he bought it for about $12,000 and spent twenty-five thousand more to repair it why because this is a car that I always wanted to write from 1957 I wanted to own one like this it took me from 1957 till 85 to get it so it's gonna be mine forever but today's event was about more than owning cool cars so collecting antique cars has become a sort of community building activity in Newfoundland members of the Newfoundland classic and antique car club often do charity work with seniors homes and children's charities as well and their work brings together people from different aspects of society today though people like Kai Austen were able to appreciate the product of other people's passion do you like cars yeah do you like the cars here today yeah which one's your favorite the blue one with the roof I think it drove off actually it's not here name which one the blue car with the finish why do you like it because it has that big bucket on the top when you're old enough to drive do you want to get that car okay yes another convert and future vintage car enthusiast actually penned it CBC News st. John's that's very cute I must say most of the time any time I see someone with a convertible I ask why do you own one of those in this province but I got to say I was very jealous of Naches they're getting to go up for a drive with the top down with the weather that we've been having an amazing summer we were offered no problem I'll show you how great the start has been numbers-wise and what the forecast is looking like for it after the break excellent free coffee or $50 fine if you're out walking your dog on a leash you'll get one of these if not you'll get one of these the city of Mount Pearl is trying a new kind of trail enforcement that's coming up you you welcome back Ryan and certainly you've got some good news for us yeah and I thought I would share a little bit of good news in terms of how nice it's been hearing a lot of comments of has this summer really been as nice as it feels huh we'll get a couple of bumps in the road early July but we had pretty suddenly totally forgot about May but she was pretty good Megan a couple bumps early dry and now we've had a good two-week stretch so everybody's forgot to go to everything it feels like it's been great for months as long as we don't pay for it in August well but in terms of the numbers for this summer we are now up to in st. John's 26 days including today of 20 degrees or warmer and 20 degrees is a pretty good indicator of a summer day I think absolutely and so we've been keeping this counter for the last couple of years and here it is again 2012 the best summer ever that's kind of the number to beat and interesting to note we are off to our best start since 2012 okay so a good chance that we might be able to match sort of 2013 20s you know up to the of course that requires looking much farther into the future than and you ever dare too far into the future Peter no too far into the future that said the house she go engages we look into the future we are splitting the rocks today of course and we're gonna be splitting the rocks tomorrow even some some sticky in there as humidex values will be rising same thing for Wednesday backing it off a little bit with some of those showers moving into Labrador and of course for the later parts of the week we are looking at that not half bad not great as some showers move into the region by the way haven't forgotten about you folks in central parts of Newfoundland with those highs today badger 29 degrees that's day number 31 above 20 degrees for you folks Corner Brook day number 27 of 20 degrees are warmer and that is a 27 degree temperature there and happy valley-goose Bay today was day number 17 at 20 degrees or warmer and now unfortunately been a missing data in Labrador City but I will try and get that in the next couple days those are the big Environment Canada stations that we keep track of the temperatures and we're keeping track of the temperatures right now still a very very nice evening out there and the good news is for those that aren't a fan of the sticky stuff that dew point yeah as we take a look at the dew point very good indicator of how it feels we're in that comfortable range but as we move over the next couple days that dew point is gonna climb up into the 16 17 18 range so starting to get a little sticky at times certainly into the afternoon as temperatures will really start to rise over the next couple of days by well I shouldn't say really start to rise because we are already into the high 20s but we are gonna add a little bit more in the way of temperature over the next few days we're talking low 30s for tomorrow and even into the Wednesday time period there as a visible satellite showing nicely the onshore winds along the west coast bit of some coastal cloud there a couple of showers firing up over the interior parts of the island right now but as south of the trans-canada highway and it looks like south of buckins as well not expecting those to roll through any communities tonight and we are looking at a very very pleasant evening some onshore fog for the south coast tomorrow morning other than that it's very quiet out there look at those morning temperatures so windows wide open tonight for sure and let that nice summer air come in it's not all that often we can relieve all the windows open as we roll into tomorrow a very nice day again fog will retreat to the coast along parts of the south coast we're gonna be up in the 27 degree range for Metro a little bit cooler with winds in from the South tomorrow I think they will actually be so southeast places like Faerieland will top out around 20 18 degrees right in those entre winds along the south coast shouldn't here be near 30 in Corner Brook Humber Valley Grand Falls Windsor to Gander that stretch through Central and even down towards Terra Nova that'll be our best chance of 30 to 32 degrees tomorrow talking about humidity of the humidex in that 35 range I think st. John's feels closer to 31 into the afternoon and 30 and happy valley-goose Bay Mary's Harbor as well as mackovic and high 20s in the West will talk about Wednesday and beyond coming up thanks Ryan the city of Mount Pearl is trying a refreshing approach to enforcement on its Trailways positive reinforcement constable Derek Hinds has been handing out free McDonald's coffee coupons to people who are following the rules like walking their dog on a leash it's encouragement the kind of approach that City Council is considering for other streams of enforcement too we tagged along today while constable Hinds patrolled the trails I noticed a lot of people out walking their dogs on leashes kids weren't our helmets and even people pushing their dirt bikes so I went to my supervisor and said it'd be a great thing if we could give something out for people doing great things instead of giving out tickets all the time great to see you walking your dog on the leashes on behalf of the city we like to give you a free coffee sunshine free coffee can't complain I mean it's a great incentive to keep doing it obviously I think it's great when people have their dogs on a leash of course just because you never know the risk and some people are just really nervous of animals if they don't have their own right it's great actually because most times we're giving them a citation for something that they're doing so it's good to actually give somebody you know a coffee for doing a good thing it made your day I like to give you guys a free coffee it's great to see it was a hit I'll give you 25 people off you know people not having a dog off leash and the same thing with dirt bikes and kids with scooters and we did it again on Friday and I gave it another 25 so it worked really great what was the reaction like from people awesome they thought it was great they couldn't believe it it was nice that they were getting a good thing for doing a good thing how do we encourage people to follow the rules because the rules are for the benefit of everyone and to do that come up with an idea like that get out there and actually encourage folks to continue to follow those rules I think it's great you know when when no matter what we call them we call a municipal enforcement officers police officers most of us would say a cop you know when I cop shows up on a bike or a try like this on a quad and he's got a helmet on and sunglasses on and he looks for part of an enforcement officer he stops you in the trail way to come to see you your first reaction think what it is it's like oh oh what have I done and how much trouble am I in for whatever when they stop take the glasses off smile and say you know what dog on the leash you know what young guy young gal helmet on today riding your bike in the trail we really appreciate that here this is for you I just think it's a brilliant idea approach council may consider for other issues well surprisingly enough you know I can answer that with a yes we have brought in not that long ago as you will recall we brought in a clear bag garbage program to encourage more people in our city to recycle we've had an ongoing discussion at Council about carrot versus stick if you go and you see a container and someone has left their recycling in it they are not doing it right and they have failed to participate or they're simply ignoring you yeah that needs to be addressed and there there has to be a citation of fine whatever for that kind of thing but shouldn't we do something to recognize all of those people who go out of their way because you do go out of your way to do this stuff don't you recognize them and how do you do that so there's the carrot what do you do to provide for those who do it to encourage others versus just the discipline that's required for those who don't we kind of been debating that you know that constable Hynes and the the staff at municipal enforcement came up with this idea and went ahead and executed it that's the kind of example that council looks at and we can't help but smile and say guys great job and it proves a point I think I hope it does anyway that it's not always got to be enforcement enforcement enforcement sometimes it can just be thank you very much well we're used to seeing police on motorcycles or horseback or as you saw there sometimes on a quad but this is new a Quebec police officer is Canada's first cop on a skateboard and as Simon a connection II reports he knows more than a trick or two agent jetty is video we'll be spending the summer patrolling the south shore skate parks keeping an eye out and maybe pulling off a sick ollie or to himself ants video is Canada's first skater cop and along with his badge and gun his standard-issue gear includes a helmet and board he says his modified uniform definitely gets noticed yeah yeah yeah Nellie's different Oh silly let's see if I skated in policing in the water yeah she did you can call Texas office awesome the longer a police officer earned his street cred the hard way he was once a skater boy himself who dropped out of school at age 15 now that his life has taken a 180 uses his skills to relate to teens who turn to the skate park as a hangout they say it's obvious he's not a poser had you ever seen a police officer skating before no never parents think it's cool too but for a different reason as a murder we don't really like our kids going and coming in this kind of a place so I think it's gonna be safer for them but ASP Leon says skateboarding's bad-boy reputation is overblown he's hoping his story can inspire more police departments to get stoked about a sport he says is misunderstood the boy survived a starter set without near in mud PK little called upon useless as kids that's kind of the mirror the skater cop also hopes by meeting kids on their own turf he'll build trust with the community that's traditionally had a difficult relationship with police it doesn't hurt that he can grind the odd rail to simonec initially cbc news long gay a woman in Glover town says she'll never let her young son forget why he's a hero will tell you what he did to deserve that kind of praise and about three minutes you welcome back to here now a woman in Glover town says she's lucky to be alive and it's all thanks to her son yes Marcy Smith says her 11 year old son David was the only one to notice their house was on fire he woke up his mother and sister and got them out of the house yeah Marci and David shared their story with the CBC's who had a Marshall he just started yelling that the house was on fire for us to come out samantha was already asleep and I came out of my room and the blaze was everywhere it was already in the ceiling it was everywhere but he held it together and caught us awake and got us out for sure he did his sister was asleep and I yelled for her to get up and to get out and he ran down the hall and made sure she got herself out of the front door and out safe while I stayed in and got the phone for dialing 911 it's because of David we did though because if he had waited or he had a ran out of the house like most kids would have done because that's what we teach them to do we would not have made it we would not have made it our house was small the fire was at the back of the house it went for his room first and that it would have been my room and his sisters if Heda went out we would not have made it not a chance it's heartbreaking and our dog was still in there I tried to get the dog that's got to be one of the things that sticks in your throat yeah I'm sorry yeah it does we tried though sometimes I think about what I could have done until I get the cat and the target and then they just tell me I couldn't no matter what you saw makes me feel better about it you saw how fast it happened buddy unbelievable it's it's so amazing what everybody has stepped up and done for us I cannot believe it I mean as people I've never even spoke to you before have just open themselves up the donations of clothes and everything is just amazing now we we still are working on you know where we can put everything but you don't have a place yet but we have here it's just it's so warm and so it's just amazing how people are set up for us there's been another death in this province involving an all-terrain vehicle coming up after the break an ATV user and a longtime safety at it talks about how tough it is to get people to be more cautious around the big machines you welcome back to here and now the death of a 13 year old girl in Bonavista has the head of an ATV organization pleading with the public to think safety first when offer it operating off-road machines earlier today the CBC's Jeremy Eaton spoke with the Avalon trail way corporations Rick Noseworthy for the rules clearly state that you had to be 16 years old to drive this machine do you have to have any safety gear off no you don't have to but that is a definitely a little bit of a gap in the legislation the manufacturer recommends and we strongly recommend that you wear a helmet but right now two provincial law says you do not have to wear a helmet mossad by size well as you can see by these machines you know they're every bit as big as this Ranger pickup and when you look at it your parents would never think of giving their child a pickup to drive at 13 say here just go and play but then some parents give them this side by side and say go play well these are middle-of-the-road recreation machines they're not you know Yamahas high output machines and the one on my right you can do probably 65 kilometers an hour the one on my left can do upwards of 85 kilometers an hour well the one on the left is pretty 1,200 pounds the one on the right is a probably a thousand pounds and did they all differ you can get some of these six eaters can go up to as much as 18 1905 what goes through your mind when you hear about incidents like the one that happened over the weekend in Bonavista a lot of things go through and it's very tragic the fact that this is affected you know two or three families a young child did and it's so preventable the reason why you need a helmet and your seatbelt on and roll bar they work in conjunction together they got to have that because if you don't every seatbelt on the very thing this T's on to save your life the roll bar is you'll be ejected from the machine and the roll bar will squat and kill you if you don't have your helmet on your head can hit the roll bar or hit the ground as simple as that you can be killed and if you don't have a roll bar the machine will squash you so you need three of it and you need to use it it's a system and all three have to be in place all the time well the wire brush you use on your barbecue could get hauled off the shelves CBC has learned Health Canada is taking a closer look at the safety of the popular tool after reports of people ingesting loose wire bristles the CBC's Katie Nicholson explains it may look like a harmless thread but this is actually wire from a barbecue brush and it meant a world of pain for Stephen Crabb and it was probably one of my first two bites of a burger and it just got bad really quickly you know I thought that there was a piece of thyme or rosemary or something caught in my throat Imaging revealed it was no wayward herb Crabbe had swallowed a metal barbecue brush bristle it was sore but it was also piercing because every time I swallowed the slide that was sticking out was hitting the other side of my throat and causing little micro abrasions a doctor removed it and crab threw out the brush to me it just seems silly that they're still selling them and people are using them but that could change Health Canada is now performing a risk assessment of the safety of barbecue brushes with wire bristles this after it received nine incident reports since 2011 although surgeons believe the number is much higher this was pulled from the throat of a Nova Scotia woman three years ago and earlier this month another bristle was removed from the throat of this four year old in Alberta then there's Kim schellenberg doctors had to slice into the red deer woman's neck in the hunt for a bristle accidentally served with a hamburger she's thrilled to Health Canada is looking into the issue well I think it's about time schellenberg has called for the popular item to be taken off the market since her own brush with a bristle because you you see that and it's like oh for three dollars you can swallow something that can make its way out to your jugular or you know cut your guts up if Health Canada decides the brushes pose a danger to the public there could be recalls or they could be pulled from the market altogether we may not go over well retailers say many customers know the risks but still swear by their wire bristle brushes we always try and guide them away from the bristle brush unfortunately sometimes that's what they still want Health Canada's risk assessment will be complete by the end of summer now in the meantime if your barbecue brush is looking a little used and abuse like this one you might want to get rid of it there are alternatives on the market like this wooden paddle or you can always ball up some aluminum foil use some tongs and a little elbow grease Katie Nicholson CBC News Winnipeg the weather update is brought to you by Beltone hearing service st. John's helping the world hear better before we get to the weather it's certainly been beautiful barbecue weather and lots of people have been out there Ryan have you tried any of the alternative yeah there was a boy that that happened to last fall and immediately that kind of clicked for me obviously with youngsters at home now so made the switch to the wooden paddle and verdict definitely thumbs up wouldn't go back so it works fine and a lot safer yep safe don't have to worry about that that's right and before we get to the weather we have a little look here at some unlikely furry animal friends yeah this oh this video was sent in from Lori Pinson of Deer Lake her one-year-old cat skittles has become friends with a baby squirrel the young squirrels started hanging around Pink's ins cabin and has been playing with skittles ever since vixen tells us the cat is very gentle and he's have even brought home birds completely unharmed that's amazing I'd say that squirrel look at think he follows the cat here it's like where do my cat go excuse me cat friend wait for me hello these ghettos where you don't Skittles wait for me skittles that's admit cuz cats you would think would be chasing after a creature like that just kind of like a mouse and she's like oh my goodness yeah so let's just hope that squirrel knows the difference between skittles the cat and the other cat down the street right yeah with the sharp claws and that lean and hungry look yeah it's very great videos yeah thanks for sending that in ah great day to lounge around with your friends outside the only possible segue I could find there as we look at our highs today it was a beauty right across Atlantic Canada some thunderstorms bubbling up in New Brunswick but it is smooth sailing here across Newfoundland and Labrador and as we look at that Future tracker it's going to be another nice one tomorrow as I mentioned lots of sunshine across Labrador Newfoundland some cloud out in the East but any of that early fog and heavier cloud will retreat back to the coast along the south coast into the afternoon and again tomorrow we are talking about daytime highs into the 30s from Terra Nova to corner Brooke central the best chance of getting in there and happy valley-goose Bay back across the interior into the Mary's Harbor region now for Wednesday we're watching this cold front and it will be pushing through Labrador on Wednesday Newfoundland some shower and drizzle chances mainly drizzle chances along that south coast is the fog will be a little bit more resistant to to pull back to the coast it will pull back as we move into the afternoon but may take a little bit longer on Wednesday just a little bit more moisture in the air by the time we get to Wednesday evening I think this model is overdoing those shower chances it's mainly just cloud cover and that front that will be moving into southeastern parts of Labrador so it's a late day arrival for Cartwright as we look ahead to Wednesday 20 degrees in Labrador city named with those showers marching in again it's South Coast drizzle the possibility of a shower perhaps from poor to bask across to Mary's town but generally just cloud cover and those temperatures again into the interior near 30 degrees for Central and it looks like another warm on here in the East at 26 to 27 now for Wednesday night in through Thursday this front will then start to wander onto the island so some lingering showers in behind it and those showers will start to stretch across and push into western parts of newfoundland central possibly into the afternoon I think st. John's likely stays dry until maybe Thursday evening her into the overnight so really three solid days here and note the colder air coming in behind this front so we're talking temps back into the teens yet ahead of the front on Thursday we are still into the high 20s across central parts of Newfoundland and again the humidity certainly building over the next couple days we're talking low to mid 30s in terms of what it feels like right across the island tomorrow once again on Wednesday and even on Thursday the humidity will be hanging on in the central and eastern sections of the island of course a beautiful week what does that mean well we do have some shower chances for Friday into Saturday this is the system that will be moving in the showers persistent four Labrador I think it's showers Friday into early Saturday for the island right now my thinking is that this low kind of clears off we better get a bit of a dry punch for Saturday afternoon even some sunshine back in the mix for Sunday so the weekend is not a washout but the temperatures won't be quite as warm as what you're seeing certainly over the next couple of days we'll obviously keep you posted on that and again into the 30s and labra with shower chances Wednesday through Saturday and even lingering into Sunday across the big land it's time now for the young athlete of the day we want to introduce you to Joshua party of manuals CBS Joshua is ten years old and recently received his brown belt in karate from Jason Foley's Academy of martial art Joshua also plays baseball and loves to swim great work Joshua here today's young athlete of the day it's an emotional reunion that was captured on camera as HMCS st.

has this report all through B C's interior the fires just aren't letting up more than 160 are burning nearly 3,000 firefighters are working just to contain them including the fire that forced the weakened evacuation of Williams Lake many of its residents are now holed up in evacuation centers like this jewel shaniyah took the early advice to get out my two children went through the Fort McMurray fire last year so they were they were already pretty shooken up about it right so I didn't want to have to wait until they evacuated and they had to go through the chaos again so I got him out on Monday in all 40,000 people have had to leave in Prince George more than 8,000 people have now registered as evacuees and they keep coming to the south and Kamloops a similar story as volunteers figure out how to care for everyone we're starting slow we're just catching up on all that food and whatnot in there so we should be ready to go pretty soon as people wait and worry there is some positive news at least at Williams Lake where firefighters say they are managing right now we're in a pretty good place with the fires there they're laying down today anyway but right now some firefighters are becoming evacuees themselves volunteer fire chief Stan Pogue left his home yesterday he's going back out on the line tomorrow you you've got to be able to file it and then keep focused on what's happening it's changing its changes immediately it can all change with as little as a gust of the wind more help is coming the federal government is looking to bring in firefighters from other countries if there are additional resources needed from other parts of the world we will access those as well meanwhile in addition to the 40,000 people already on the move another 20,000 are still on evacuation alert being told to be ready to go in a moment's notice because the fires are so unpredictable Cameron Mackintosh CBC News Prince George well George Romero the film director

it was one of the most feared places on earth a colony of the Damned the final judgement site for tens of thousands of criminals [Applause] it was so hard should broke the spirit of even the toughest convict here was a land of no escape a hell on earth a notorious prison colony known to the world as Devil's Island on the northern coast of South America lies the colony of French Guiana a quiet backwater this small French outpost has been nearly forgotten by the rest of the world today it's home to over 100,000 people who thanks to massive subsidies of the highest standard of living on the continent but lurking behind the colorful exteriors lies a dark past until the middle of the 20th century this country existed mainly as a giant prison most people knew it as Devil's Island from 1852 to 1947 men were sent here in Chains all were condemned to serve harsh sentences some faced the ultimate punishment over 70,000 convicts were eventually banished to the prison colony of French Guiana similar fiafia nakata sake was really a living hell especially when you realize that out of 70,000 men three-quarters died here from disease from hunger from mistreatment and one can't deny that some men were sent to the prison camp even though they were innocent and many of them were savagely beaten tied to a bench and whip I hope that God reserves them a place in heaven Devil's Island itself was the infamous home of France's most feared political prisoners but what the world thought was just an island was actually a vast system of cruel prisons spread throughout French Guiana the largest camp was on the mainland in the prison city of saleroom this was where the convicts first arrived and where the majority of them served their sentences many tried to escape some died at sea others perished in the savage jungle most were caught in less than five thousand actually lived to see the day of their release the once formidable prison is today an abandoned ruin it sells deserted but some of its long gone inmates have become legendary one of them was only Sharia he was better known by his nickname the French word for butterfly Papillon society had no intentions of helping me of bothering to find out if I was worth salvaging the world had cast me beyond the reach of Hope into a hole like this where they had only one thing on their minds to kill me off no matter what and read that be on shalyah Papillon was convicted of murder in 1932 but he always claimed he was innocent determined to escape he made his first attempt in an open boat sailing 1,800 miles to Venezuela but he was ultimately captured by the Venezuelan police and sent back to French Guiana prison authorities had little patience for Pepe oh and he was condemned to two years in solitary confinement it was a sentence that almost killed him one of the most remarkable convicts ever sent to the prison colony was Rene Bell Benoit Belvin wah had served with distinction in the French army but after World War one desperate for cash he committed a series of small burglaries he was arrested at age 22 and sentenced to eight years of hard labour in French Guiana any other civilized nation would have given us a chance to remake our lives instead of sending us to death some of us committed the first felony in an excess of folly and we I no sense criminals now we are locked up like animals in close quarters with assassins and thieves we are men with energy and self-respect and the confinement was hard with our temperament vonabell Benoit just weeks after he arrived Beldon Hwa attempted his first escape but he was ultimately caught in Dutch Guiana and returned to the French authorities captured escapees often spend six months in the much-feared block house as they awaited trial before a special maritime tribunal the blockhouse was a place of exceptional cruelty each night the prisoners legs would be shackled to a long iron rod scratched on the walls graffiti still counts off the endless days of waiting some of the men were walking skeletons breathing the hutt tainted air makes them anemic they suffer from cholera hookworm and malaria many of them will be dead when the day of the trial arrives honeybell Benoit but despite his confinement the daring Beldon wah was soon planning his next escape how did such a diabolical place come to be ironically early in its history French Guiana held promise it's thought that Christopher Columbus noticed the coastline on one of his voyages to the New World but it wasn't until the early 17th century that the region was first claimed by French explorers soon there were rumors of a giant city in the interior made a gold called Eldorado in 1763 an official call went out to find settlers for this supposin paradise entire French villages emptied of their inhabitants as they departed for a new life across the Atlantic but catastrophe quickly struck the ill-prepared colonists tropical diseases began to decimate the population within the first year over 12,000 settlers had died those who survived fled to three offshore islands they dubbed it the islands of salvation because the death rate dropped very very quickly they were able to find a way back to Europe and after they came back to Europe it was confirmed that this was not the land of El Dorado but this was the land of pestilence and this was a land of disease this was a colony of the Damned over the next 80 years others would try to settle this inhospitable country but all efforts failed in 1852 Emperor Louie Napoleon the third devised the plan to settle french guiana and at the same time combat a severe crime problem at home his idea was to send Frances criminals to the distance South American possession regulations were established for this new prison colony including the concept of do blah-de-blah required a convict who had finished serving a sentence to remain in French Guiana for an equal period of time the first convicts were sent in 1852 and it wasn't long before female convicts percent as well over a thousand women were transported to the prison camp they were watched over by the nuns of st. Joseph's convent of San Laurel learn to keep house learn to sew the convict who wanted to marry and receive permission from the penitentiary administration would go to look for a wife at the convent but the plan to encourage convict marriages to populate the colony was doomed from the start this'll soon be from is the main reason that women were sent to the prison colony was because they were condemned for infanticide killing their own babies it seems like a paradox because they were sent to Guiana to bear children the government schemed to populate French Guiana with the offspring of convicts was failing in both of CS mahogany they began to think that if you married female convicts to male convicts the children could only turn out to be damaged so the authorities stopped worrying about colonisation they now worried only about emptying France of its convicts and installing them in Guiana the authorities ended the transport of women in 1903 but by then this ill-conceived plan to rid France of criminals and used them to populate one of her colonies had turned into a folly of monumental proportions and it would take almost a half-century for it to be stopped French justice was harsh and often pitiless a convicts journey through the depths of hell began the day he was sentenced to servitude in Guiana prisoners from jails all of her friends were transferred to the town of San Martin in the northern French coast twice a year a column of condemned Souls with March from San Martin's prison to the pier specially trained Senegalese troops in combat uniforms and with fixed bayonets guarded the convicts as they walk through the town since these were men with little to lose French authorities feared a mask insurrection most went peacefully others did not the column moves slowly forward policemen held back the curious who had gathered to watch our departure I looked up and there was my wife Nanette I never saw her again neither prisoners guards nor public broke in on this poignant moment everyone understood that these men were leaving the normal life behind whatever and repubiic oh yeah the prisoners clamored aboard a transatlantic steamer called the Marten year like cattle the men were forced into the hull of the ship once inside the holding cells only a few hammocks were issued those without were forced to sleep on the steel floor which was often covered in human excrement there was always a tremendous fear by the prison guards that there would be an insurrection aboard the ship anytime an insurrection was about to full Matt guards opened up steam hoses inside the cages and that quiet of the prisoners down very very quickly for half an hour each day the prisoners were allowed out of their cages for fresh air they had been stripped of all personal possessions and wore only prison uniforms but they did have a secret way to hide valuables money and jewels were kept in small hollow tubes called plans Aleph Emet blah this is the famous plan the metal tube opened up in the middle everything valuable that the prisoner owned was inside there they could even keep small tools – saw metal bars with and in order to hide it they would use the plan like a suppository pushing it up into their lower intestine without having a place to keep one's valuables in either be confiscated by the prison guards where else it would be stolen by the other prisoners and prisoners would sometimes be murdered for the contents of their plans after a journey of 20 torturous days across the Atlantic the convict ship arrived at the mouth of the Maroni River entrance point to the prison colony of French Guiana we steamed slowly along the bank towards Aloha we all flocked to the portholes of the cage there were exclamations of many kinds look look over there monkeys look the parrot flying as I gazed out of the green jungle its immensity frightened me for I knew through it I'd have to take my chance to escape I won't even walk the Martin air pulled into the dark as sama wrong many of the town's residents were there to get a glimpse of the new arrivals was the only amusement in this bizarre town on the edge of the rainforest after the material cargo had been removed from the ship the human cargo of convicts was marched toward the prison in French slang it was known as Lavanya there was a huge gate over the opening I read in large letters come the Latin spot assume it's the banya the men behind me murmured in voice that was robbed of all hope so this is where I live until I die the newly arrived convicts were assembled in the prison's large central courtyard the Commandant of the penitentiary made his traditional welcoming speech you have been brought to the prison colony of French Guiana he said to serve sentences for crimes committed against France behave yourselves and it would be possible to serve your term without suffering unduly first escape attempt add two years to your sentence second attempt at five more but escape is impossible there are two constantly watching Guardians at this prison the jungle and the sea a few days later our names were entered on the roll velbon wha-la four six six three five the figures burned like a brand in my mind I was the forty six thousand six hundred and thirty fifth condemned man who had arrived in Guiana since 1852 but despite the unimaginable misery and hardship to come the banya could not break bail burn while spirit he kept dreaming of what only few men had done before him escape from Devil's Island Renai Belvin woz ii escape attempt was not successful either he and his companions were shipwrecked on the coast of Dutch Guiana hungry desperate and without any provisions that killed one of their group and grilled his body parts over an open fire Belvin wad declined to eat the flesh local Indians eventually turned the escaped convicts over to the Dutch police the special military tribunal sentence bail Benoit to the punishment cell this time for half a year Belvin Wasel was just large enough to fit a wooden bed at its foot the so called bar of justice city of San LaRon where bellman wah was kept existed solely as a prison city each morning the convicts would leave the compound and go to work in town prisoners kept the streets eerily spotless the little houses freshly painted convict labor helped make Sally raw live up to its nickname little Paris see I think I said it yeah they raised animals and farm built roads and houses all different chores then after 17 or 18 hours of work they returned to the main entrance of the prison and was searched for weapons at night they were locked up in barracks that held up to 60 men the guards rarely ventured into this world it was a place of alcoholism rape violence and fear the men were classified by the administration into several categories well the classification of prisoners started out with what the French called hospitais that would be the equivalent of felons they were sentenced to French Guiana for a determined period of time or for life a second classification of prisoners were called relegate relegate were petty offenders prisoners who had been sentenced for bicycle theft for stealing food such was the case with my father he was caught red-handed on the highway stealing potatoes and had to pay with the last 15 years of his life spent in the prison camp a convict sentenced to life in prison does not want to have anything to do with the relig a like my father I relegate was considered garbage he's a thief who will die a thief once a prisoner finished his sentence he was considered a libero a freed person but in reality he was only free to live in French Guiana and struggle each day to stay alive in the capital city of cayenne a liber8 band played for meager tips in the cafe see was it William if you are a citizen of Guiana that owns a small business you can have for a modest fee to the penitentiary administration convicts to work for Healy you're not gonna hire a Libre it will cost you more who has already done his ten or fifteen years of forced labor and is worn out the last category of prisoners were the Incas or the incorrigibles these were men with unbroken wills men who rebelled against their captors but once labeled incorrigible a prisoner was destined to a faith it was very likely to kill him he would be sent to the much-feared jungle camps men accustomed to city life in the temperate zone were put to work chopping down huge trees in the heart of the tropics half would quickly break and die to the administration the men are things to be disposed of honeybell penguin disease would eat away at the prisoners malaria typhus and yellow fever quickly drain the population at night the men were locked in cage like cells deep in the forest here they were in constant fear of predators venomous spiders deadly snakes poisonous centipedes and vampire bats had sucked the blood of sleeping convicts although many tried to escape very few succeeded and a recaptured convict might have a fate even worse than the jungle camps the islands of salvation a cluster of three islands nine miles off the coast of French Guiana this was the final home to hundreds of the most hardened prisoners Royale the biggest island housed the island prisons administration and also held over 400 convicts here life was an endless repetition the bell that strikes at dawn to awaken the sleeping man is the one that strikes at dusk recalling us to ourselves the sound of the bell punctuates our routines we live by it stalling another day no different from any other this is prison life forces legumes Francie's lagron who was sentenced to life imprisonment claimed to be one of the great art forgers and counterfeiters of modern times though he was known to be a compulsive liar one fact is indisputable he was a talented painter following time spent in solitary confinement mcgraw egg an to paint religious scenes on the walls of the chapel on royale but alone in his cell he also created a series of vivid images of life in the prison colony I think it really accurately portrays not only just the physical environment but the agony of many of the prisoners take a look at the prisoner with the double leg irons there he is in solitary confinement with a stub of a cigarette from his mouth we're thinking about the prisoners attached fighting with knives probably over a homosexual lover's quarrel he was telling the world the penal colony was rotten the penal colony was inhuman it was a way that the French government had decided to just get rid of people without thinking about the future or the past across a narrow strait from Royale is st. Joseph's Island today there is nothing but ruins hope ur grown by vegetation but half a century ago this was home to the reclusion or solitary confinement cells rebellious convicts and captured escapees were sent to this maximum-security prison damp and moldy cells were only 9 feet by 12 the grilled ceiling allowed guards to watch the prisoners from an overhead catwalk to make their punishment even more cruel the men were sometimes forced to remain standing for 12 hours a day if you lifted up your head to look at the guard you felt like a leopard in a pit being watched by the hunter who had just caught you it took me months to get used to that offer sensation the man who planned this place must have been loved some monsters only thought beyond Shire st. Joseph was known as the island of silence the prisoners were absolutely forbidden to talk food served once a day in a small bucket supplied only a minimum of nourishment it was here men came to die a slow death and yet some like the legendary Paul Bruce ank endured this cruelty for unimaginable periods but he was brought into the cells and st. Joseph's and at the end of his first 30 days of imprisonment he spat on the guard so they added another 30 days he threw his bucket on the guards at another 90 days insulted the guards at another 30 days and he spent 11 years in the solitary confinement cells and st. Joseph's half of his 11 years in the black pit dark hole cell which was completely cut off it was just total darkness his name got as far as the newspapers of France and recycle ECAM a symbol for the rebellion of the prisoners sent to the colony there's a small Cemetery on st. Joseph it was for the unfortunate families of the guards children who died of fever wives who died in childbirth but there was no cemetery for the prisoners when a convict tired the body was rowed out to a point between Royale and st. Joseph islands and unceremoniously dumped into the sea almost instantly sharks long accustomed to the taste of human flesh devoured the corpse eventually the Sharks themselves were caught and fed to the prisoners completing a gruesome and food chain the final island that made up this nightmare prison colony was Devil's Island it acquired its ominous name when the local Amerindians found it inaccessible because of prejudice currents that made the island ideal for isolating some of France's most feared political prisoners fewer than 50 men were ever imprisoned on Devil's Island the island is only about 1200 yards in circumference and one can almost circle it while smoking a cigarette it looks like a paradise or covered with palms but in reality it is an island hell where many poor souls suffer eternally in torment vonabell Benoit the most famous prisoner on Devil's Island was captain Alfred Dreyfus he was one of the first Jewish officers in the French army pantie Semitism in the upper ranks was probably a strong factor in his arrest on charges of treason in 1894 a wave of hysteria swept across France Dreyfus was vilified in the press caricatured as a traitorous monster he was soon tried and convicted of treason based mainly on the evidence of anonymous documents he was then publicly humiliated stripped of his rank and sentenced to life imprisonment on Devil's Island alone on the island except for a contingent of guards Dreyfus was kept in a stone hut on the edge of the sea he thought that he might never return might never see his family again his wife's children he suffered the greatest harm that a military men could suffer he was accused of betraying his country in the first year and a half of his confinement Dreyfus was permitted to take walks around the island to receive books and letters and to occasionally speak to the guards but the prison administration became obsessed with the irrational fears in Dreyfus might somehow escape his conditions were changed radically the solitary confinement cell was built just for him outside a machine gun was mounted for added security this was an excessive type of punishment here is one prisoner alone on an island where Escape is virtually impossible and yet not only is he put in a Cell but he's guarded shackled and constantly watched the only movie ever made of the great French writer in 1897 spurred on by dreyfuses wife and family emile zola published his famous article J'Accuse in which he charged the French military with condemning and innocent men the case now commanded worldwide attention and caused an enormous uproar see diffusivity offer me but I think if Dreyfus had been locked up on an island somewhere in France people's imaginations wouldn't have worked quite the same way if you're convinced like Zola the Dreyfus was innocent that this innocent person was on Devil's Island meaning in hell it would strike your imagination very hard it is imagination confined to his heart his mail heavily censored Dreyfus had no knowledge of the storm his case had created he passed his days solving complex mathematical problems but the long nights were more difficult he would write I was shackled in an unchangeable position to my bed the shackles which were very tight lacerated my ankles the torture was hardly bearable during those tropical nights on the northern tip of Devil's Island is a bench made of stone it is said that in the days before he was confined to his Hut captain Dreyfus would sit here for hours and stare out in the direction of France I was invited to visit on the 100th anniversary of my grandfather's arrival in Devil's Island and I was very moved of course to see the places where he had spent so much time where he has suffered so much and and looking at these bars and his walls and think that my grandfather had spent so many many days looking at the same wall not knowing when he would ever return to his family so it was difficult difficult for me to fully realize what went through his mind when he was there in 1899 a new trial was granted and after four years on Devil's Island Dreyfuss returned to France although he was again convicted by a military jury the government yielded to international pressure and pardoned him Dreyfus was reunited with his family finally in 1906 the French High Court of Justice cleared him of all charges he was reinstated into the army and in a moving ceremony captain Dreyfus received Frances highest military award the Legion of Honor thanks to his wife and millions of supporters Alfred Dreyfus had escaped the horror of Devil's Island in French Guiana there was only one thing worse than imprisonment on the islands of salvation the guillotine nicknamed the merry widow the guillotine was assembled often in San Lara killing a guard or a civilian was almost always followed by a death sentence the condemned man's fellow convicts were forced to witness the execution [Applause] prisoner volunteers acted as executioner's and they were often the most despised men in the colony Oh honoree claudia was hated by the prisoners when he walked a condemned man to the guillotine he mistreated him claw Co hit him with his fists swore at him called him a good for nothing but claw Co met a sad end he was murdered by some liber8 they tied him to a tree where there was a nest of ants and covered him with honey then they let him die a slow death burned by the Sun and devoured by the ants to some men being sent to the prison colony was a fate worse than death a few survived the ordeal only to come out broken and irredeemable but there were those whose spirits could not be easily broken for them the only way ever to be truly free was to escape more than three-quarters of the prisoners in French Guiana would attempt escape there were only a few ways to do this all dangerous escape through the jungle almost an impossibility the convicts become prey to it and perish escape by way of Dutch Guiana must have been hunted down and sent back to Saroja but there is the great and magnificent way of the sea and this is the most dangerous of all our nipple burn one Renea bell benoit's third escape attempt in 1934 was finally a success travelling by land and sea he carried with him 13 years accumulation of journals and sketches about life in the prison colony eventually bellman wah made it to Panama and befriended the natives the Indians were shocked to find that an escaping prisoner would have all these papers on them completely useless things to carry around while if you had a sea turtle you put that in your back and you would have enough to eat for three days but here is a man escaping from the middle of the jungle with 30 pounds of manuscript and original artwork from the penal colony he was determined to tell the world about Devil's Island Belvin woz dream seemed finally to be realized when he reached New York in 1936 two years later his manuscript entitled dry guillotine was published the French government was deeply embarrassed by bellman wah story and demanded his extradition he was forced to flee to Mexico but returned to the US with world war ii erupted in Hollywood bellman wah became a technical consultant on several movies about Devil's Island like passage to Marseilles which starred Humphrey Bogart why should we help you escape I leave that to your conscience in 1956 bellman wah was granted US citizenship by a special act of Congress his escape from Devil's Island had led him straight to the American dream Hori Cheri air claimed to have made eight escape attempts he finally succeeded in 1944 floating off Devil's Island on a raft made of coconuts Cheri air became a citizen of Venezuela and published his book Papillon in 1968 it became an international bestseller translated into 35 languages later a hit movie appeared starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman but whether papillons accounts are true or not remains a matter of debate vt did the truth about Papillon about his book is that it's a fine piece of work there is a part of it that really did happen to him it's been documented but he embellished the story with The Adventures of his cellmates and the convicts he met there however Cheri air came by his story his prison colony experience led him to become a very wealthy man on November 22nd 1938 the Martin air left friends with 600 convicts it was the last convoy ever to French Guiana World War two brought German occupation and misery to France as the war raged in Europe US troops entered French Guiana to prevent it from becoming a Nazi be checked and though cut off from the world the prison system continued to operate the French had known for years that the colony was a failure and after the war a plan was developed to shut down the prison by 1947 the last of the convicts was freed most returned to France he's a leader tycoons if you print it back so then they had a lot of trouble reintegrating into modern society because these men had acquired habits that were incompatible with the French Way of life many of them ended up in institutions and asylums they ended their days being taken care of by society Paul Drewes sank the man who spent 11 years in a dark solitary cell could not adjust to freedom he told people that he no longer felt like himself in fact in 1949 he ended his life by throwing himself in the dubrow River his mind was still in prison 300 ex-convicts chose to stay in french guiana they had been away from france for so long that this was now their home by 1965 less than 100 of them were still alive that year dr. Raja pretinho was assigned to the hospital in San Lauren his home movies of the ex-convicts are some of the last remaining images of these condemned Souls lit the display is awesome but the spirit of the old prisoners very did a viable unikitty there were some who were jokesters and there were others who were rockin tours telling stories about their lives but others were much more discreet about themselves and didn't speak much juliana is laid on morphine i remember one man who was always staring into space and from time to time he cried tears running down his face and you could see that this was someone who had been deeply traumatized someone who had certainly suffered a lot but didn't talk about it French Guiana today looks upward to the heavens for its salvation seas sank the European Space Agency launches Ariane Rockets from a site across from the islands of salvation luxury cruise ships now make stopovers at Royale where there were once grotesque cells of despair there are now tourists strolling leisurely through the ruins the rest rod now caters to customers who can enjoy a picturesque view of Devil's Island the colony of the Damned is now a country looking toward the future if the buying I knew no longer exists it most certainly exists elsewhere the interest is certain atrocities I saw are being duplicated at this very moment in prisons everywhere it is important to understand this because the prison is a prison whether it is located in Salah or in Paris and Devil's Island or anyplace else in the world

Burgermaster distinct Career Award and awards from around monitor Jordan law school up in Deep River in Roseville these include of Michigan workers learning community health clinic work there's a

graduate of Boston College Law School and he also served as a clerk for the Honorable William G Young in the District Court in Massachusetts who has a lot of interesting and high-profile cases and opinions and and most impressive thing for me about why I Meyer Kevin the most is since October he has not once mentioned the Red Sox to me so I give tremendous credit for that and to Kevin's right is christopher lash he's a professor at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and his legal scholarship has been focused on the entangling and disentangling of criminal and immigration systems and he's written extensively on it in many distinguished law journals such as the Yale Law Journal forum a common law privilege to protect state and local courts during the criminis and so that has been a focus of his scholarship for some time and you'll also hear that he has also been involved directly with some of the issues that we're talking about including a letter by 300 law professors on the issue of immigration enforcement in state court houses he's a Yale Law School graduate in 1996 and then he was a public defender in Louisville Kentucky and then a private lawyer in criminal defense and civil rights litigation and in 2006 he became the Robert M covert clinical teaching fellow at Yale Law School where he taught numerous clinics including the worker in immigrant rights vacancy clinic and he currently code directs the criminal defense clinic and the immigration law and policy clinic at the University of Denver's Durham College of Law so we're really happy to have everybody here and and get deeply into these issues now the the structure what we'll do is each oh and also here to loosen Dervin was here our our section chair and Kevin Scruggs who's our CEO of the section so we want to thank them for being here as well and also give them the credit for helping us organize all this and really making a lot of making this possible through their leadership and we appreciate that immensely in terms of structure but we'll have as each of the panelists will give us a short presentation about a specific area because we tried to get different perspectives judicial perspective prosecutorial perspective and also an academic perspective we I will follow up with some questions that I've developed and in talking to the panelists and we'll open it up for audience Q&A which we hope to have a sufficient amount of time for we'll make sure we have a sufficient amount of time for that this is a this issue is about what ice Immigration and Customs Enforcement is doing in state court houses across the country and has been doing for a considerable period of time but things changed in 2017 and the policy has been not to enforce absent exigent circumstances which again is a it's a rather broad exemption but absent exigent circumstances not to enforce or not to arrest people who are undocumented or subject to deportation when they are in sensitive locations and the courthouses are not sensitive locations so we'll have a discussion about that and and obviously what the fallout has been from the increased enforcement in state court houses so if someone shows up for a family court matter let's say a mother shows up for a family court matter with respect to either domestic violence or something to do with her child and she is arrested by ice at the courthouse let's say a victim of a crime shows up at the courthouse ready to testify at a criminal trial arrested let's say a criminal defendant has a Hobson's choice of do I show up for my court appearance and risk getting arrested by ice or do I not show up and get a warrant for my criminal case so these are all very important issues and just to give you some statistics from January 27th from January 20 2017 through the end of the year ice made 110,000 and 568 arrests compared to 77,000 in fiscal year 2016 that's an increase of 40% the increase in in arrests of people who had no criminal record increased by one hundred forty six percent is an ABA resolution on the subject but for that we're gonna have Kevin give us the background on the ABA resolution and some of these issues in a more granular way because Kevin authored the ABA resolution that was passed in 2017 so and that came out of the Massachusetts Bar Association as well. I'll let Kevin take it from here. Thanks Josh so I co-authored this with Raul Ayala who is the deputy federal defender from los angeles seated in the second row here he's and so this is a great collaboration between prosecutors and defenders and on a subject where there's plenty of common cause so as you I think you probably know as practitioners probably familiar with work in this area and if but if you don't starting in in 2014 five years ago now the DC office of the ACLU made recommendations to the Department of Homeland Security that they ought to change their guidelines and regulations concerning where arrests are being made because arrests were being made in and around courthouses it was causing a chilling effect on people seeking the protection of courts anybody involved in court in court insane in something that would require them to show up at a courthouse and so that was five years ago nothing happened until this the recent presidential election in the spring of the early spring late winter of 2017 it became very clear that the there was a deliberate decision that was being made to ramp up the enforcement actions at courthouses and the reason that was given for that was because it was in I guess retaliation or in response to the actions of cities municipalities in establishing sanctuary cities and trying to do to deter arrests for the status offense of being undocumented and the courthouses were safe and if they were looking for people who were criminals in their view and and dangerous and that will be the place to go to to to find people like that particularly defendants but what wound up happening is that it wasn't just defendants who were being arrested in courthouses it was anybody that was being arrested in courthouses we have in Massachusetts the former president of our mass Bar Association was in a situation where he had the opportunity to represent a woman who showed up to extend a civil restraining order that she had obtained against her abuser boyfriend husband who had been threatening for years that you can't go to court you can't nothing you can do to about this or I'll have you deported so she shows up after ten days after getting the emergency ex parte order to have it extended and there is ice and they're waiting for her and he had to get her away from the public orders he had to get her into a private room where she could not be seen she then made the decision not to enter the courthouse to extend that abuse prevention order that she was seeking this was that's a civil process meanwhile her abuser you know pounds his chest as he comes out of the courthouse you know his case winds up getting dismissed when nor the civil case winds up getting dismissed when she doesn't show up to get it extended and that's the kind of justice that we're seeing with the involvement of ice without any kind of restraint without any kind of guidelines on how and when they should be taking actions in courthouses so what we considered was that it would be important to follow up with what ACLU had recognized four or five years ago and to make a recommendation there are there were two bills pending in Congress a House bill and a Senate bill about amending the sensitive locations Act that's a federal statute that provides guidance on when and enforcement iced enforcement actions can be taken in various places and hospitals places of worship schools those those are places that are designated as sensitive locations because they're sensitive locations and you don't want to deter people even if they may have the civil status of being undocumented from going to a hospital or going to a place of worship or going taking their kids to school so why would you not extend that type of protection to people who are availing themselves of the protections of the courts so that was the read that that led that was not the only outcry there was great public outcry across the country their chief judges from various states who took action all they can do is send letters you know asking you know for further consideration or asking for restraint or at a minimum collaboration California rules jurisdiction this the chief judge of the state court wrote such a letter and the state of Washington the Chief Justice there so these actions on the judicial side to try to persuade ice not to be doing this there's proposed legislation that is it that exists in many states including New York Josh's home state as well as in Rhode Island and in other states that is intended to curtail the authority of ice to enter a state courthouse or premises in order to make these types of arrests and so in 2017 this ABA resolution now policy of the ABA recommends similarly that the Fed all statute be amended to give the protection to courthouses that are is extended everywhere else there are the things that have been going on in response to this beyond that as well there have been civil cases that have been brought it's you know there the relationship between states and and the federal authority is complex we had a case in Massachusetts in which an action was brought seeking a writ of protection for anybody who specifically eight people who didn't want to be named but also anybody who's similarly situated to protect them against the threat of arrest and coming into the courthouse that was a matter that was dismissed by the single justice of our Supreme Judicial Court she did not choose to issue this writ of protection which I think professor lash will be able to talk us through a little bit of the background down but it basically provides a common law protection against civil arrest in certain circumstances but that didn't work you know so the lawsuit in that way was too broad you know we didn't have respondents it was all expired II it wasn't something that courts were used to dealing with somebody coming in asking for the protection of the court without a case going on and so that wound up being dismissed and the court really also pointed out that that it might not even really that a writ by a state court even if it was directed at a particular person that would not necessarily prevent ice officials from performing their duties as they see it in making arrests in locations where it would be safe we think this is a very grave access to justice issue we know of many instances where people have been not going to court not going to churches when they see you know the ice wagon their same kind of idea her terrible story and I'm going to stop talking about someone in a live in a Brazilian community in Massachusetts and right by the church where all the Brazilians who or parishioners would go to to worship on Sunday morning right near there suddenly was a big ice wagon we used to call it a paddy wagon my ancestors had to get arrested they the Irish they would go into the paddy wagon and and that was being used to to arrest churchgoers so thank you thanks Kevin and will obviously get more into with following up and and whatever questions the audience has we will now want to turn to a judicial perspective from judge Lankford Morris and in the context of how the court views its responsibility in terms of what goes on in the courthouse not only in the context of handling your own cases in the cases that occur in the courthouse but also in the context of security within the courthouse itself in situations that might lead to confrontations and other situations that affect obviously the security of the people in the courthouse as well as those who are involved in those incidents thank you so much for inviting me to participate with this distinguished panel and it truly is an honor and a privilege I want to get some idea however those of you that are in the audience how many of you are actually practicing from the prosecution perspective or from the defense perspective let's start with prosecutors how many prosecutors do we have or if that was your last work okay and how many defense okay and so do most of you practice in state court I see heads shaking yes okay well you heard that I'm a judge I've been a judge I'm in my 27th year on the bench for 27 years I've been hearing both civil and criminal matters the first eight years I did civil criminal and family and appeals from all of the district courts and state agencies it within the jurisdiction I'm in a County that's just north of where Detroit is we're one point almost one point three million people in my County so it's a very busy court and I have the honor of serving the citizens of Oakland County so I just wanted to put that in perspective as a former let's say I did defense work mostly for the feds Bivens actions and representing defense agencies and agents I'd like to start out in Michigan I guess we are pretty blessed having listened to Kevin and we had a chance to talk a little bit about this at a conference where we were previously and it appears that in Michigan we do not have the interference from ice in my courthouse I haven't seen it and I've done some research knowing that I was going to appear on this panel and I've been informed by the captain of our court security the deputy in charge that we have never had ice come in and actually removed someone from one of the courtrooms there about 20 judges in the circuit court I also checked with my chief I'm the Dean of the bench but I checked with my chief I had her check and no one has ever complained about this so we've been lucky we have had maybe three ice agents within the last three years that have entered went into the courtrooms and actually observed a proceeding but not interfered they just came to observe and I think that you know and we all know that immigration issues are paramount today and so as a judge I have always taken it seriously even before it became so premier of an issue for judges to ensure that people's rights are protected I've had cases for many years we have a huge Arab community in Detroit the largest Arab community we have Christian Arabs and Muslims Arabs we have the there Chaldeans is what we call the Christian Arabs from Iraqi and Iraq will actually they tell us that you could possibly be murdered if you're returned to Iraq and so it is a very serious offense when people are in our courtrooms either as defendants or witnesses we do not want them to be interfered with whether it would be by Isis or anyone else everyone in a courtroom is should have the protections of fairness and justice that's my job I am the judge to ensure that there's a level playing field within the court room and so for example when I take a plea in the recent years I started adding more detail to the plea taking process and I've had lawyers ask me for the script as to what I'm saying about the immigration issues so I'm not you all know all the basic rights that we give to a defendant when they are giving a plea however I want to just share with you in the advice of rights what I tell criminal defendants when I and I tell this to every criminal defendant not just not just someone that has an interpreter I don't look at a defendant and try to determine if they're an immigrant or not you don't know what an immigrant looks like I've had immigrants in my courtroom from Canada from London Russia everywhere you can't look at someone and determine they're an immigrant so every single defendant this is what I tell them after I get to the point in the advice of Rights where I'm dealing with the immigration issue I say do you under stand that if you have any immigration issues there could be consequences you could be deported I cannot give you any legal advice or any immigration advice I have no control over the immigration courts and immigration law is changing daily in addition I ask them do you need time to consult with an immigration lawyer assuming they say no then I ask are you ready to proceed with your plea whether it's no contest or guilty and then I get to taking the factual basis but if there's any defendant whether they're an immigrant or not if they hesitate on rendering a plea I'm going to give them an opportunity to consult with their attorney I'm going to pass it I will adjourn it you can come back next week if you're in custody we can adjourn it one week for the next in custody proceedings in my courtroom so having shared that we haven't had any ice agents actually appear but I think it's important that I would be prepared if in fact that were to happen because we have to maintain the integrity of a courtroom we cannot have witnesses or defendants or victims or anyone feeling intimidated when they are in a court house whether it's a state courthouse or any other kind in my humble opinion and so I have had many cases where witnesses were afraid I've had cases gang murders and cases where double gangs were victims gang and defendants gang members and we have people we have Hispanic gangs we have all kinds of gangs in my County and so what we would do is we have had what we call material witness warrants where sometimes the individual would have to be arrested because they were terrified they didn't want to speak and the prosecutor would come in and ask for a material witness warrant I did it myself as a former prosecutor sometimes you do have witnesses that are afraid but you don't want to go that far as a prosecutor if there's anything else you can do to protect your witness in the same thing I think applies to defense counsel if you can protect your client then you want to do whatever it is that you can do to protect your client now I just want to share a couple of instances that I've been involved with I know for a fact that we have had I don't want to name any names but we've had lawyers that were actually there was an attempt to arrest a lawyer in my courthouse due to federal taxation tax cases issues and they sent the marshals the federal judge sent the US Marshals to pick up the lawyer in the courtroom while he was handling a criminal matter it wasn't in my court but at my colleagues court and she immediately refused the u.s. marshals from taking custody of the lawyer which was her right and she had the deputies on notice that you are not going to allow the marshals to take this lawyer he's with me until this case is completed and so I think that that's one example of what can be done in protecting whether it's the lawyer the defendant Victim Witness you do not have to allow any of them to be taken from your courtrooms now I know that there's always the possibility that dealing with a large court complex someone could be arrested if you will or take it into custody when they're in the courthouse someplace outside of my view or outside of the building and so that's an issue that we as a bar association are going to have to probably address as things proceed and as things change with immigration law and I think that's why many of us are here and active with the American Bar Association one of the best bars in the world and we know that there are issues that will arise and we have to address them now I want to share we did have and I'm gonna just be wind up in just a couple of minutes it's a dangerous thing when you give a microphone to a lawyer much less a judge but it really is there has been some high-profile cases in the Michigan area where we had approximately 40 Chaldeans Christian Arabs arrested and they had prior convictions on their record there wasn't anything major some of them have had minimal convictions maybe drunk driving or who knows very minor criminal convictions but maybe they were doing well in the community these things happened a long time ago we did have a circumstance where 40 were arrested and they were going to send them back to Iraq well my probation agent that's actually assigned to my courtroom he's there with me all of the time when I'm handling my criminal cases for arraignments pre-trials pleas sentences and violations of probation he is also the pardon investigator for the state and he shared with me today in fact that he was the person that the governor's office came to to go through those 40 Iraqi citizens and the last governor in Michigan actually pardoned them and that's a big deal because if you are pardoned that governor left at the end of December he was a Republican governor and he pardoned the 40/40 Iraq citizens and the the point is if you have a expungement of a conviction on your record according to my agent he says that ice will still proceed it has to be an actual pardon in order for it to disappear and even then I understand that you still have to go in front of the immigration courts to ask that whatever it is the proceeding actually get dismissed after a post post pardoning by the governor and so these are all factors that we as litigators and as judges hearing litigation have to concern ourselves with so that's kind of the perspective in Michigan I think we're lucky that we do not have this going now but we are working on being prepared at all times Thank You judge and you shouldn't worry I've spent my whole career trying to discipline myself not to interrupt judges so with varying success anyway but now Chris professor lash if okay and if you could sort of give us a legal framework as Kevin mentioned you know some of the the constitutional the underlying constitutional issues and also how this is playing out across the country and a little bit about what you and your colleagues have been doing in the sense of what motivated that 300 professor letter and what was in it and whether it's had an impact and where you think we're going across the country because I think you probably have the best sense of the broader context of the issue right now thanks so much and and like the Honorable Judge Morris I want to express my thanks for being here it's a privilege to talk to this group and especially to be up here with in such esteemed company so thank you i I want to pick up on some of on judge Morris's example of the US Marshal coming to the courthouse and being told no not in my courtroom so I think that there's a lot of interesting issues that are swirling around this issue of immigration courthouse arrests federalism is one can we tell can we as state officials tell federal agents that they can or can't do anything the sanctity of the court room and the courthouse is another and I think you you ver very careful to say the courtroom is one thing but now if we start thinking about the courthouse and its environs that could be something else so I have written for a long time and been involved in what could loosely be called sanctuary issues particularly the use of immigration detainers to transfer people from state and local custody into federal immigration custody and so being sort of tapped into these issues and there's been a lot of movement on that particular front over the last eight years or so and particularly the last four years where sort of the pipeline if you will from state and local criminal systems into the federal system has been shut down or narrowed it's not as easy for federal immigration officials to obtain custody over people who are in state and local criminal proceedings as it once was and as that has sort of been shut down or tightened a little bit you see like as if you were squeezing jello it's gonna appear somewhere else and on a certain level you can maybe think about the courthouse arrests that way they in early 2017 early into the Trump administration people were very concerned I was at a community meeting in in Denver and it was I believe it was shortly after Trump had issued his executive order on day five of his administration that essentially said I'm going to cut funding for any sanctuary jurisdiction in the country and the people in the community were very concerned Denver was Denver a sanctuary it wasn't Denver a sanctuary what was going to happen some one person stepped up to the microphone and said is it safe for us to come to court and some city officials immediately responded yes it's safe for you to come to court and that's maybe where our story begins here if I can yes I can it's not it and it was not in Denver ice had been coming to court and this slide here shows an attorney on the left this is an attorney with the Meyer law office in Denver she's talking to a couple of undercover people who admitted on questioning that they were in fact ice agents and they were there to make an arrest in the courthouse this video got put up on YouTube and then people really started to worry in in Denver the you know a brief thought experiment of the colloquy that you described that you go through with criminal defendants when you take a plea you know imagine maybe we have to push that colloquy to the front end of the entire proceedings and say what you need to know before you engage in these proceedings is anytime you come to the courthouse you may or may not be put into deportation proceedings right so this is a huge issue and one of the initial responses as attorney Curtin alluded to was chief justices from different high courts of different states began objecting so a letter from the Chief Justice of California from the Chief Justice of New Jersey in the City and County of Denver it wasn't from our chief justice it was from our mayor and a group of the I think the entire City Council I think the DA I think the city attorney also signed that letter Oregon also Connecticut I don't think I have the letter up here so all of these different groups are saying to ice basically would you please stop the response from this was then attorney General Sessions and then Department of Homeland Security secretary Kelly one of my scholar colleagues has a nice way of describing this first paragraph in which they sort of took the Chief Justice of California to task for using the word stalking in her letter and they decided to mansplain that that that's that stalking is a legal term and it has a legal definition in case you didn't know Chief Justice of California the second paragraph here puts this in the sanctuary in the in the context of the sanctuary sort of ongoing battles because one of the reasons why that ice has given for why they need to make these courthouse arrests is because they can't get people from the jails anymore so therefore and they described this as localities basically hindering immigration and enforcement so and here's the response to the letter from Denver is more courthouse arrest I don't know how many people find this picture disturbing a lot of people and what I'll say is this this there's something about this that gets to a lot of people many people are troubled by this idea that arrests like this are going to take place in courthouses and so I as a scholar what sort of started trying to think through this and of course my first thought was let's let's we gotta go to Blackstone right that is meant to be funny I mean you came here to talk 15th century law right so well Blackstone's 18th century but he's talking about 15th century law thank you the but the way I got to Blackstone is thinking about something I learned in my first year of law school in Civ Pro which is the idea about if you come in from out of the state to go to a court that you should have some immunity that you can't be served with a new lawsuit while you're in the state and actually if you trace that doctrine back you find this 15th century privileged from arrest and it was at a time when civil cases were started with arrests the arrests would be made by a sheriff in England and the doctrine was you can't be arrested in the courthouse or near the courthouse and you can't be arrested on the way to or from the courthouse I'm I won't go through the whole the whole doctrine but what else say is it's got basically two two strands one is this idea about protecting people people who are coming to and coming from the courthouse on their business in the courts and the idea there is a very simple one we want people to be able to come to court we want witnesses to be able to come we want parties to be able to come we want other people who are interested in cases to be able to come I would hazard a guess that in our current day with our current constitution we might want the public to be able to come and go house it's a it's a value of transparency and it's a it's access to justice and then but there's a separate strand and this I think sort of goes to this idea of not in my courtroom which is this strand about the specialness of the place of the courthouse and its environs and I want to just share with you this this one case that I can't really get over this is orchards case and really I'm the bottom paragraph here so officer so what happened oh this is hard to work I gotta keep my finger on it thank you I'm in such nice company thank you for taking care of me so the so the officer in this case arrests a person in the courthouse and the person seeks their discharge basically a habeas corpus case and the court examines the officer and the officer says here's what happened I saw him I happened to I hastened to arrest him because I knew that he was that there was a warrant out for this person he ran for the courthouse and made it inside the outside door of the courthouse and what do you think the court does reprimand the sheriff right that said I think it's a great illustration of how strong the protection and the sanctity of the courthouse was held in that time so those are the two strands of the of the privilege and I think I'll just stop there because I think we're gonna have a really interesting discussion thanks great thanks Chris all right so I have a couple of questions and I want to pose some of them to two of our panelists vs2 Kevin first and you know and then obviously I'll get to all three but just there's something that I'd like to ask just a prosecutor's reaction and a judge's reaction but but the first question after Kevin is I guess as as a lawyer as a litigator my first reaction is can you negotiate with ice or is that counterproductive and and in the sense that you're just giving them a heads up that someone's going to be there they want so has what's what's that's a great question and the answer is yes prosecutors negotiate with ice all the time about trying to get with people to come to court getting them out of ice custody into the custody of some state official and then ensuring that the person is going to be returned to ice custody afterwards there's no reason why there couldn't be such collaboration well I'm not saying the prosecutor estate prosecutors will enlist to be agents for four-eyes for enforcement purposes or because that's that's that's very different but in terms of negotiating about well because even under the ABA policy if there is an exigency then then they can make a an arrest in the court house but if that's going to happen that should be so unusual and so special that the Chief Justice of that court certainly ought to be notified so that the so that the so that the appearance to the if nothing else to the public is that justice is seems to be being done and it's not a naked Battle of sovereignty between state officials and federal officials each of whom is only doing what they think is right so this actually spookily recapitulates an incident that actually happened I'm in our superior courthouse in Middlesex County all the time I don't try cases there but I'm always there and so one time about a year ago now a prosecutor comes into my office and she's complaining she's and she's complaining because her witness her vikner witness has been arrested she's and the case is on for trial and and she needs this witness to go forward and you know what should I do and so I said what your prosecutor asked the judge she's there to help you get a continuance explain what happened and okay all right so I'll go and I'll ask the judge for a continuance you know we're scheduled to go to trial today but I'm sure that she'll be happy to give us a continuance and that was all that I heard about it until you know 4:30 when I found out you know the case had been dismissed so that from the prosecutors perspective this is just really bad policy it's also wrong I think morally almost like spiritually you know we have this idea that that the law is above people and that there is like this transcendent idea of justice and if we go to this place justice is going to happen they're not just naked exercise of power but that people can go there and they can be vulnerable they can submit themselves to everything that goes along with being a victim in a criminal case everything that goes along with being a person who has to come to court and endure cross-examination perhaps endure the inconvenience because but we do it because we think that there is a higher good that is being accomplished and that this is a special place so for prosecutors we are horribly offended and it's not just the inconvenience of having cases be especially terrible domestic violence cases be dismissed because we can't get witnesses to show up which happens all the time we can't get witnesses to talk to police officers because they're afraid that they're going to be become witnesses and then gonna have to show up in court where they are afraid to go so from the prosecutors perspective what's happens without collaboration such as it's gonna be you know say that in a special case we need to make this arrest in the courthouse all right go ahead and explain that to the judge maybe there's such a case where that's going to be appropriate but you know that should certainly be the exception well actually I've had cases where the prosecution and defense have asked for adjournment sometimes at the last minute when the trial is scheduled the next day or that day and we haven't selected the jury yet I pretty much try to work with the lawyer and we have some really excellent lawyers in my jurisdiction and I will say this Kevin we don't have the situation where I'm dismissing cases because witnesses can't appear in 27 years I maybe can count on three fingers maybe two and I'm hearing approximately well in the beginning we would get over 600 criminal cases a year we're not getting quite that many but a lot of criminal cases over 27 years and I can't even remember dismissing because they couldn't get a witness they usually can get the witness and I'm in a jurisdiction where the prosecution as well as the law enforcement officers are really known for being tough and they will find you they basically have a lot of staffing as I indicated I'm in the county just north of where Detroit is and so there's a lot of resources available and they will find the witness and even with domestic violence cases as long ago as when I was a prosecutor back then the law in Michigan was such that even if you called the police the police came to your home they arrested the defendant and let's say the woman didn't want to testify we've had people that were running naked in the street to get away from the defendant and then they changed their mind and didn't want to testify and whatever excited utterances they made at the time they had initial contact with that officer those would be utilized and you could get a conviction in Oakland County with a jury with no victim testifying it has happened and I'm talking about way back to when I was a prosecutor in the mid 80s and they're just tough I wish I was practicing dismiss for lack of prosecution I mean so I would just say this with whether it's the prosecutor or the defense counsel I have enough to do I'm a really busy judge with civil and criminal cases so it's really not that hard for me to grant an adjournment or stay the case for a short period of time we don't have lengthy delays that's the other thing that we have that's that's paramount I cannot sit on a decision longer than 35 days a criminal case is supposed to go to trial after 91 days from arraignment in front of me so 91 days you're supposed to do the trial or up to one year but no longer than that so we're moving the cases along and they are taking account of every single thing that happens in every single case in my courtroom and everyone else's every single month we get a detailed report as to where the cases are age wise and and and otherwise so I'm just saying that every court is different every jurisdiction is different I know that but I don't have a problem working with either one whether it's the prosecutor that needs a brief adjournment or the defense counsel if there's an ice issue I'm gonna give them a chance to work it out I want them to take that chance to work it out before they come to me and ask for a material witness warrant Chris yeah so the interesting thing about the privilege that I unearthed with this research is that on the one hand it was deemed too exist regardless of any action taken by any of the parties so if you were arrested on your way to court you were entitled to your release pursuant to the privilege but the but there was also there's also a line of cases that talk about something called a writ of protection and that's a writ that the court could issue that would basically be a piece of paper that the person could then carry and when the if anybody tried to arrest them they could say look I'm going to court you can't arrest me because the judge says so the Massachusetts case that attorney Curtin referenced earlier the single justice case was an attempt to get a writ of protection I would I would say sort of on a class action basis and the while that was denied in the particular instance and I think I would say on procedural largely procedural grounds the Court recognized that the the privilege seems to be well-established in Massachusetts and I think you can almost read that decision as directing attorneys to go to their judge and ask for a writ of protection on a on an individual basis the the power to issue the writ was deemed inherent in the court because it's and it's in the interest of the administration of justice so it's it's like a courts authority over their courtroom see I see we have Wendy Wayne who's our chair the chair of our Commission on immigration she's also a great defense attorney here she filed that suit in in in Massachusetts hello hello you thought you were gonna escape us so she filed that suit in Massachusetts and and you know I say we because I certainly because my district attorney rohtul an amicus letter in support of this of this lawsuit and we lost but if you read the case it's clear that the recognition as as Professor flashes has pointed out the judge didn't want to dismiss it she sees the inequities but she just couldn't issue a writ without a person to give it to and the procedural posture of that particular case was problematic for her but it's it's great it's it's good and if anybody wants if anybody wants a copy of the decision and/or the pleadings in that case contact me or Wendy Wayne and we'd be happy I'm sure to share that public information with you and I mean clearly this is something we don't want to see this happening so what do we do about it is the problem yeah and that's that's actually one more question for the panel and then we'll open it up for the audience but and and I'd like to work from Chris to Kevin to judge Lankford Mars on this one which is solutions in terms of the some of the solutions that are out there some of that are in progress and which do you think are the most effective but also which are the most practical in the sense of getting something through the US Senate at this point is problematic but in certain in states for example New York State as Kevin mentioned New York state passed a law last year but it was only by the assembly which is traditionally democratic and the Senate is traditionally Republican well now after November both the Senate and the assembly are democratic and the judge is a Democrat and the prospect for success of that legislation is significantly enhanced at this point so we'll see what happens but so and then you have court oriented the New York City Bar has recommended to the Chief Judge of New York to issue rules to cover this with with a series of very detailed recommendations so I would like to know where you think there are solutions that can be effective and practical at the same time and practice what I mean by that they that they can either pass a legislature or be implemented in a way that can protect the integrity of the judicial process as we've been talking about well I want to offer up a disclaimer because I'm an academic so practicality is not in my wheelhouse but I actually think that the the body of law that we're talking about here is is a great tool for both local courts state courts I think for me the the power of a local court a local Chief Justice a state Chief Justice to do this is would be very difficult to question I know we're gonna get into federalism right but just as the I think the the US Marshals didn't insist on their ability to make that arrest in the in the courtroom and I think that for ice to insist on their ability to make arrests in courthouses would be kind of similarly perilous for them a piece of the work that I did was looking at because the the privileged from arrest is rooted in the courts Authority federal and state courts alike recognize that and so I think that if a state court judge or a state court chief judge had attempted to enforce the privilege and I was just disregarding that I think there would be a sympathetic ear in the federal courts I also just quickly say I think legislation is also and not on the federal level but because that seems impractical but I think legislation at the local level so in Denver for example the City Council passed an ordinance in late 2017 that effectively prohibited city workers from communicating immigration status or immigration related information to ice and that applies to the courthouse staff too so if if someone's calling up trying to figure out when somebody has a court date for the purpose of making an immigration arrest I think that would apply the and then I also just want to quickly mention that in New York well to step back on the legislative side I think the legislators have the authority to effectuate this authority of the courts I think if if Legislature nature's tried to limit it then you would run into a separation of powers problem because I do think that this power is basically in the courts in New York the governor issued an executive order saying no ice arrests in executive offices in New York and I haven't heard anything about any kind of a legal challenge brought up against that so it seems as though the ability to control state government so from from my perspective I can see I can see a little bit of both sides you know the the the the problems can be illustrated by two examples you've got that you say you've got a case where the judge finds out that ice is going to arrest this litigant say it's it's a it's a it's a petitioner seeking an abuse prevention order you know for me the worst kind of case someone who goes seeking justice in this house of Justice risks everything to walk into one of our buildings and you know what should be the role of the state in helping the these ice officers in force basically civil law where it is going to create a situation that is going to likely hood of injustice in particular cases and certainly develop this is not what we want the public to see if we want the Trump public to have faith and trust in our legal systems to see squabbling so say a judge decides well I know that this person's going to be arrested by ice I don't want that to happen I'm gonna smuggle her out the back door okay that's a scenario that happened recently in Massachusetts and contrast that to a situation where judges are basically co-opting court officers in to act as agents for ice to hold people who would be otherwise at liberty to leave the building until a nice officer can show up to arrest them on this civil detainer so what is the role that that state court judges and prosecutors can complain this to me I don't really like the idea of smuggling witnesses out to avoid them being arrested where there's a lawful arrest that could be made and you know I think that that's sort of going a little bit too far in terms of comedy and and an appropriate respect for the roles of sovereigns but that you know that's so rare the vast majority of cases that I see are cases where people are afraid to come to court they won't participate in the legal system and we don't get justice done in particular cases and we don't look like we're doing justice in particular cases because people are afraid they're afraid because they in legitimately so what should be the role of the courts state courts in fighting against this see I think that that that though that the judges have great authority to preserve the legitimacy of their own process and to the extent that we're seeing things like this I mean we don't know machine guns you know at the Middlesex Superior Court we don't you know we don't enforce the the law by force there we have a process where this goes on and if in if in the middle of that you're seeing brawling taking place are people taken into custody you know contrary to the – to what appears to be the rule of law that is such a grave problem and now we really need to worry about trust in the public having trust in the legitimacy of our legal systems judge well let me say again that I'm really pleased that we haven't had this issue in in my courtroom and in my courthouse at this point but I do think that we have an obligation as jurist and as lawyers to try to get ahead of what's happening to the best of our ability and so we need early intervention in getting with our legislators within our various jurisdictions at the state level and to talk to them about these things that are going on in New York and elsewhere so that they're aware and we can start with legislation that might be helpful as a state judge our powers are limited to what goes on in our state we're not federal judges and federal judges have their powers where they sit as I understand the district court in state court circuit courts at any rate it's a concurrent jurisdiction situation so in our courtrooms we can protect but then as you mentioned professor we really have to look at going to the courthouse leaving the courthouse we would have pandemonium if we had witnesses and victims and and defendants all terrified to come to a state courthouse it's the state court houses where the bulk of the criminal cases are handled it's the state court houses where the heinous crimes are handled we're the ones handling human trafficking rapes murders robberies on a daily basis and so it is imperative in order to remain law have law and order in our communities and in our jurisdictions that our courts work so I would say that the actual working with the legislature and trying to get effective laws in place that's one thing the other thing that you mentioned professor about getting early on in the process of advising one of the issue of possible deportation and whether or not they really need to meet with an immigration lawyer obviously we need more lawyers to help in this area there there's a greater and greater need for pro bono help there's only so many lawyers that really know immigration law and they are working really hard in the Detroit area in addition I always see that the issues when a person is apprehended if you don't speak English and you're an immigrant and you don't really have anyone there to interpret for you you're at an automatic disadvantage you need the Miranda rights but you need your immigration rights really from the onset of arrest and so these are all things that would have to be changed legally but we're on notice because we know that these things are happening in various jurisdictions in our country so those are just a couple of things that I would say as far as possible solutions but nothing's immediate we can only do what we can do when it's happening in front of us you did in Michigan they came down with an appellate case I don't know maybe about a year or two years ago that added that to the plea form that just that you have to advise them that they need to consult an immigration lawyer I I do all of those no no script at all nothing and but that's my script and I do have lawyers that come because everyone knows like I said I give it to every single defendant that comes in front of me because I cannot determine who's an immigrant based on how people look and so I get a lot of lawyers asking me for that script but I made it up myself because I watched the news at night and I see what's happening all over the country and I believe it's true that immigration law is changing daily we don't know what's going to come down tomorrow and so I want people to be fully advised before I accept their plea because as a jurist you know that we have to make a finding that the plea is knowingly voluntarily and accurately made and I take that calling very seriously I'm not going to conclude that unless I'm positive that it truly is so if I have any hesitancy whether it's an immigrant or not I'm gonna give you time to think about it talk with your lawyer if you don't want to complete the proceed with the plea that's okay with me I like trials I'm happy to give people their day in court I was a real litigator as a lawyer I believe people are entitled to their justice in the courtroom just to jump on that just really quickly so the Padilla right and the constitutional law around Padilla I think we all know has had to be enforced on many different fronts right so it took a lot of Education of carpet judges have an important role to play here and prosecutors as well we're seeing a lot of new policies about prosecutors taking into account immigration consequences and I would just say maybe that maybe the sanctity of the courthouse is going to be something similar right maybe it's going to need judges giving advisements at arraignment if you are concerned about coming to court you can seek an order from the court and maybe making that known to different segments of the well there have been instances across the country of lawyers who have been involved in altercations or confrontations with ice and I think that there's a varying m'as ult's have been varied in that context but I you know as a criminal defense attorney there is no script certainly and there's and there hasn't been a lot of guidance in terms of what to advise clients I think the most important aspect is full disclosure to clients and and also perhaps to alert others in the system who are not going to necessarily take advantage of it to put your client in custody through ice so can I just respond to that or could make a comment on that so that that's you this what I like about about judge Langford Moritz is advice is that it goes beyond the basic you know Padilla warning or whatever is required by statute in most jurisdictions and says I'm going to give you more time if you need to talk to an immigration attorney about this and that's different that's better yeah that's good yes so this dis but and this this goes back to Elizabeth's first couple of questions just now about how do you advise your client as a criminal defense attorney about these immigration consequences and about the decision to come to court or not these are very these puts a lot of pressure on criminal defense attorneys to know a lot more than they maybe have been trained to know about the consequences of this particular case on whatever your immigration status is and mateus II how that is how that advice is going to be made accessible to the client in any other way so you know how do you advise you know should I ask that bail be put on you in the state court case so that you're not deported should I should I as a prosecutor not request bail in this case this week case say knowing that without bail he's going to be deported and that or in a case that we're not asking for jail time do we want to ask for bail or not ask for bail based on you know projections about how immigration might affect you know my case it's it's very difficult to know but there's nothing wrong with the defense attorney making I think talking with a client and making a decision to to let that person stay in state custody say for the pretend cease so that this you know in other words ask the judge to revoke bail because otherwise he's going to go to ice very hard we have it's hard my experience more recently is not I'm not I'm not a public defender but there are and it probably stands office for sure and I know even federal defenders offices in the New York area have now poached immigration experts from a lot of immigration organizations to be on staff to answer all of those questions and to be a full time advisory resource and that's critical because the whole context of collateral consequences for so many cases have overwhelmed the formal punishment that defendants face and immigration is foremost among them for most clients so Chris what's the status because I know some of that policy so I don't know how much I can respond to so so my work around sanctuary has really focused on the criminal and immigration intersection so I've been not as focused on hospitals though I think hospitals you know if we're gonna go back to medieval times they're – we're gonna find them being connected to churches and churches are connected to sanctuary there's going to be some really interesting research that we could do but what I wanted to quickly say is so the the places that you mentioned are in the current sensitive locations policy by ice and I think that policy really reflects societal judgment right and and the question I think when you come around to courthouses as well is because we could easily say well you know the person is subject to immigration arrest so why do we care where they get arrested but the reason why we care is we value other equally or more so like the ability to get health care the ability to go to school maybe the ability to go to court and get exonerated on this case that you've been accused of so I do think that you know to bring it back to my fellow panelists comments they do think we're talking about a moral value question I agree with that too so that your question really does fall into amending the the the federal statute but it's really part of this larger question of what kind of a policy to want to have on immigration the enforcement of violations of immigration status we do not have a coherent policy to me in my humble opinion that is consistent and that reflects our community values and as the result of that this is the type of conflict that we're seeing I just want it to weigh in on the whole advising of immigration rights as you know immigration law is very complex and the average criminal defense lawyer cannot advise on immigration law it can twist on the smallest effects and so it takes a detailed conversation by a skilled lawyer that understands immigration law to meet with that person and that's why I give them that opportunity now most of the time the lawyer that's assigned to the case or even if they're retained counsel they have found an immigration lawyer if necessary and somehow that person has consulted with an immigration lawyer but I would give them more time and if it were a defendant who couldn't afford to go to an immigration lawyer and he was being represented just basic indigent counsel representation we don't even have public defenders in in my area we don't have a public defender office is what I mean we have individually appointed lawyers don't get me started it's a long story but we're working it out in Michigan but the bottom line is I think that I would caution about any lawyer trying to give advice about immigration issues and just say that we need to do something to ensure that an individual's rights are protected we've got to maintain the sanctity of our rule of law here in America for everyone thank you and thanks to all of you we're out of time

This past month, in addition to the still summery weather—we were also seeing a sizzlingly competitive housing market at a time when things are usually cooling off for the fall. “With not enough homes on the market to meet the high demand, homes are selling 5 percent more quickly than a year ago even though prices are as high as they’ve ever been.
Let’s explore the numbers in Ocean & Monmouth Counties for October 2017:
Prices are on the rise. The Median price for a home in Monmouth County in October of 2016 was 450,000. Here we are a year later and the median price is now up to $ 499k. That means prices are continuing to rise. The same is true in Ocean County, but prices there are only up by 10 thousand dollars.
While prices are going up the average date on market is going down. Date on market is the number of days a home is on the market. It’s down from 67 in 2016 to 58 in 2017. The same is true in Ocean county where the average Date on Market went down from 78 to 67.
Next we look at the Absorption rate. That tells us what type of market it is. Remember, the absorption rate is calculated by dividing the number of sales in a given month by the number of available homes for sale. It is the inverse of months of supply. For example, if there are 100 condos listed for sale in a certain area, and 10 condos sold over the last month, the absorption rate is 10/100=10%.
In Monmouth County the absorption rate for October of 2016 was 5.68 and it’s now down to 4.23. That means there is only a 4 month supply of homes on the market. Inventory is low and it is still a seller’s market. The same is true in Ocean County where the absorption rate is down to 4.96 from 6.27.
Finally, let’s take a look at some stats. Starting in Monmouth County. We are comparing numbers from October 2016 to October 2017. This past month 738 homes were sold which is higher than last year. We have 896 pending listings which is up almost 24% from 2016. There are currently 3416 active listings which is down 17% from 2016. Again, there is a lack of inventory which contributes to the seller’s market and the higher prices. And we only had 4 new listings in October 2017 then we had this time last year.
In Ocean County, sold homes went up 5% from 2016. There are 996 pending listings ready for closing and the number of active listings went down 13% from 5,367 to 4,675. The good news for buyers in Ocean County is the number of new listings last month, which is up 6.7% with 1,328 new listings and an average sales price of 284k.
“For potential buyers who waited until fall hoping to score a bargain, the pickings are disappointingly slim,” “but one potential bright spot for market-fatigued buyers is that new listings are up slightly from one year ago. While new listings declined in the first four months of the year, they have increased on a year-over-year basis in five of the last six months.”

If you are thinking of selling, now is a great time. With low inventory and higher prices, now may be a great time for you to make a profit on any equity you have built. If you are interested to know your home’s value, give me a call for a no obligation home valuation report. I will be back next month with another market update.
