Do These 3 Trials Expose What’s Wrong With Our Justice System?

A disabled 18-year-old kidnapped, beaten, stabbed and forced to drink water from a toilet in a brutal attack that was streamed on Facebook Live.

A former police officer acquitted of murder and manslaughter after shooting and killing a drunk man on the floor, pleading for his life.

A young woman dying next to her father after a shot fired by a convicted felon, who was acquitted of murder and manslaughter.

On today’s show, Glenn was forced to question our justice system after watching these three devastating cases unfold. Where is the justice for the hate crime victim who was abused by four tormentors, for Daniel Shaver and his widow and for Kate Steinle and her family?

GLENN: He was kidnapped. He was bound with deduct taped. Gagged with an old sock. Beaten. He was stabbed. And he was forced to drink toilet water.

They gave him death threats, made racist remarks, and it was all caught on camera. Intentionally, of course.

Do you remember this attack? It happened in Chicago. Four black teens kidnapped a mentally disabled young man and then streamed it live on Facebook for the whole world to see.

One of the kidnappers, Brittany Herring Covington, she was 19, she was the person that actually recorded the torture on her phone. She's the one who is caught laughing the entire time, telling them to go further.

A Chicago judge recently let her walk away with 200 hours of community service, after she pleaded guilty to a hate crime, aggravated battery, and intimidation charges.

Well, why the leniency? Because the judge said, I think if I sent her to jail, I don't think she's going to come out any better.

Oh. Can I ask you? What -- what does -- what does the statue of Lady Justice look like? I know she's blindfolded, but I don't think that's a blindfold anymore. She's holding the scales of justice to weigh both sides. But then she's holding a sword. And that sword is for swift justice. Here the judge was thinking about the attackers' best interests.

Well, I understand we just don't want to throw people in jail. We want something to work. But we also need some punishment. Somehow or another, this just doesn't seem just.

The three other kidnappers, by the way, are still awaiting trial, and they deserve far more than community service, in my humble opinion.

I don't understand what's happening to us. Thursday, last week, former police officer was acquitted of murder or manslaughter for an on-duty shooting.

Remember, this is -- this happened the same week that a jury in San Francisco found a man innocent of murder or manslaughter after he killed a woman by shooting her on a pier. Have you seen the -- the body cam footage of the police officer that shows an intoxicated, unarmed man? His name was Daniel shaver. He's crawling towards the police crying, "Please, please, don't shoot me."

The officer shot him five times. Killed him. Maybe -- maybe this is consistent with police training. That's what his attorney successfully argued.

But if you watch that footage, I'm sorry. I can't see how that man posed a threat to the man with the AR.

This was an unnecessary death. Here's what I just want to ask: Are these three trials signs that we're way over the cliff? These three trials, kidnapping and brutalizing a handicapped person, and you get community service? Killing a woman on the pier in San Francisco. Not holding her up. Just firing a gun. I don't need murder. But manslaughter?

And the one that I really hate to judge because I'm not in their position, this police shooting a man. Now, I wasn't standing in the hallway. But what the hell has happened to our juries? What is happening to our judges? What has happened to our -- our grasp on reality? Have we all forgotten common decency and common sense?

Segregation Survivor: How to Counter BLM's Race LIES | Bob Woodson | Ep 106

Civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson has lived through segregation and been a victim of racism. But he doesn't fit the Left's mold. In fact, he's providing an alternative narrative to their "equity." With the Woodson Center and 1776 Unites, he is offering solutions that BLM rejects, but that are actually helping improve the lives of countless people trapped in poverty and inner-city violence. He goes through all of this and more in his latest book, "Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers." And he joins Glenn to make the case that the radical Left does not represent the majority of the black community. As leftist race-baiters make millions off branding the police as white supremacists while breaking the spirits of Americans of ALL races, Woodson calls out their moral treason, speaks truth to power, and denounces real racism for what it truly is: evil.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.
