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?

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars." Glenn asks Don Jr. how President Trump is handling the impeachment, what happens to the conservative movement going forward, and whether it will be led by a Trump.

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."
