Fred Taylor, President Worcester Chapter NAACP, spoke with us after the release of the Tyre Nichols video. Five Memphis police officers have been charged with Nichols murder.

Congressman James McGovern commented on the U.S. and Germany sending tanks to the Ukraine

Congressman James McGovern commented on the U.S. and Germany sending tanks to the Ukraine

The U.S. and Germany are sending tanks to the Ukraine. Sending the M1 Abrams tanks will surely antagonize Moscow. President Biden had previously said no to requests for the tanks. Biden said this was not an offensive threat to Russia but was necessary for defense. Congressman James McGovern commented on the move to the Talk of the Commonwealth morning show. He said all this comes to an end if Putin just recognizes the sovereignty of Ukraine. To do nothing and just give in to Putin begs the question where will he go next. He acknowledges Putin is unpredictable and that there is the threat of nuclear weapons. McGovern also discusses the most recent mass shooting and the discovery of more classified documents. This time in the home of former VP Mike Pence.
