The Brody File: Colorado - The Beauty and the Battle - May 29, 2014

This week on the Brody File we hit the road and head to colorful Colorado where we explore the Rocky Mountain State’s battle over gun control, drones and the legalization of marijuana. Read Transcript


David: THIS WEEK ON

"THE BRODY FILE," WE'RE IN

COLORADO.

AND WE'RE HUNTING FOR DRONES

IN THE TOWN OF DEER TRAIL.

ONE MAN'S MISSION AGAINST

THE GOVERNMENT.

IN FIVE YEARS, THE SKIES

ARE GOING TO BE BLACK WITH

THESE THINGS.

THERE ARE GOING TO BE

MILLIONS OF THEM.

David: ALSO, COLORADO

TALKS SUCCESSION.

COULD WE BE LOOKING AT A

54th STATE CALLED NORTH

COLORADO?

IT IS URBAN VERSES

RURAL.

David: AND A FOURTH

MINISTRY IN COLORADO THAT

PUTS JESUS IN THE MIDDLE.

IT IS ONE OF THE BEST

WAYS.

David: IT IS ONE OF

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WAYS AND

THE ENTIRE COUNTRY.

"THE BRODY FILE" ON THE ROAD

IN COLORADO, NEXT.

*

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE ARE ON THE ROAD AGAIN.

THIS TIME IN BEAUTIFUL

COLORADO.

ACTUALLY COMING TO YOU FROM

DYLAN, COLORADO, A COUPLE OF

HOURS WEST INTO THE

MOUNTAINS FROM DENVER.

YOU KNOW, THE LAST TIME WE

WERE HERE, YOU REMEMBER THE

CHRISTMAS SHOW.

WE WERE SNOWMOBILING.

YOU REMEMBER THE CREW, MARK

AND MATT AND TRACY.

WE HAD A GREAT TIME.

BUT WE HAVE COME TO SAFER

GROUND HERE IN DYLAN,

COLORADO.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

INTERESTING POLITICAL

STORIES GOING ON IN THIS

STATE.

ONE OF THEM HAS TO DO WITH

THE "S" WORD, SUCESSION.

WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS

THE 51st STATE

INITIATIVE.

THERE ARE FOLKS HERE IN

COLORADO WHO WANT TO START A

WHOLE NEW STATE.

THEY ARE TIRED OF LIBERAL

LAWMAKERS IN DENVER,

COLORADO, DICTATING THINGS.

MANY OF THE RURAL COUNTIES

HERE HAVE HAD ENOUGH, AND

NOW THOSE TYPES OF MEASURES

ARE ON THE BALLOT.

WILL THEY SUCCEED?

HAVE A LOOK.

THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA, COMPRISED OF 50

STATES.

BUT, WAIT A MINUTE, WHAT IF

THE MAP LOOKED LIKE THIS?

A 51st STATE CALLED

JEFFERSON, MADE UP OF

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND

SOUTHERN OREGON.

OR HOW ABOUT A NEW STATE

CALLED WESTERN MARYLAND, OR

NORTH COLORADO?

THESE ARE REAL MOVEMENTS

GAINING TRACTION.

JEFFREYS HAIR RUNS AN EFFORT

TO FIGHT AN OUT OF CONTROL

LEGISLATURE TRYING TO RAM

BIG GOVERNMENT POLICIES DOWN

THE THROATS OF VOTERS.

IT IS THE TALK OF TOWNHALL

MEETINGS.

I HAVE SEEN CHANGES

PARTICULARLY OVER THE LAST

10 TO 15 YEARS IN THIS STATE

THAT CONCERN ME.

IT IS PREDOMINANTLY LEFT

VERSUS RIGHT, BUT URBAN

VERSUS RURAL.

David: AND THAT'S THE

CRUX OF THE ISSUE, RURAL

AMERICANS ACROSS MANY STATES

FEEL THEY'RE JUST NOT BEING

HEARD.

THEIR LAUNDRY LIST IS LONG.

AT THE TOP, GUN CONTROL

LAWS.

THEY ARE OUT OF TOUCH

WITH RURAL, COLORADO.

THERE IS AN ATTACK ON RURAL

COLORADO.

IT IS NOT JUST WITH THE GUN

CONTROL LAWS.

IT IS ON SEVERAL OF THE

OTHER BILLS THAT THEY

PASSED.

THE GOVERNMENT MANDATES

COVER RENEWABLE ENERGY AND

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES THAT

RESTRICT OIL AND GAS

DRILLING, AND CONTROVERSIAL

SOCIAL ISSUES LIKE GAY

MARRIAGE.

ORGANIZERS WANT TO CREATE

NORTH COLORADO, AND THAT

IDEA WENT TO VOTERS IN 11

COUNTIES THIS PAST FALL.

I DON'T THINK THAT THAT

IS NECESSARILY THE WAY TO

MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN WITHIN

THE AREA THAT YOU LIVE.

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO WORK

WITHIN OUR ELECTORAL

SERVICES.

David: THE SO-CALLED

SUCESSION MOVEMENT HERE IN

COLORADO HAD MIXED RESULTS

THIS PAST NOVEMBER.

SOME COUNTIES APPROVED IT.

OTHERS DIDN'T.

BUT THE ORGANIZERS OF THE

51st INITIATIVE SAY HOLD

ON A MOMENT, THIS TYPE OF

MOVEMENT TAKES TIME.

MOVEMENTS TAKE TIME, AND

EDUCATION TAKES TIME.

AND PEOPLE HAVE A PROBLEM

SAYING I AM GOING TO LIVE IN

A DIFFERENT STATE, EVEN

THOUGH THEY LIVE IN THE SAME

HOUSE.

TO SAY I'M GOING TO LIVE IN

THE STATE OF LIBERTY OR

SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

David: THAT DESIRE FOR

SOMETHING DIFFERENT CAN BE

FELT IN STATES LIKE ARIZONA,

MICHIGAN, AND IN WESTERN

MARYLAND, WHERE THOUSANDS

HAVE SIGNED SUCESSION

PETITIONS.

ONE WEBSITE READS, QUOTE,"WE

INTEND TO EXERCISE OUR RIGHT

OF SELF-DETERMINATION AND

GOVERNANCE FOR RIGHTS TO

LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS."

IF THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

LISTEN AND GOVERN IN A WAY

THAT IS MORE IN OUR

ACCORDANCE OF HOW WE WANT TO

BE GOVERNED, WE WANT A

DIVORCE.

THE STATE FLAG INCLUDES

TWO "X"S, REPRESENTING THEIR

FEELING OF BEING DOUBLE

CROSSED.

WE NEED BOOTS ON THE

GROUND, GOING TO YOUR

CHURCHES AND JOBS, WHEREVER

YOUR AT, AND EXPLAIN IT TO

PEOPLE AND GET SIGNATURES OF

SUPPORT.

David: CREATING A NEW

STATE ISN'T EASY.

THE LAST TIME A STATE

ACTUALLY GAVE UP TERRITORY

WAS IN 1820, WHEN MAINE

SPLIT FROM MASSACHUSETTS.

SINCE THEN, ADDITIONAL

EFFORTS HAVE BEEN

UNSUCCESSFUL.

THE FIRST STEP IS GETTING IT

PASSED BY THE STATE

LEGISLATURE, AND THEN ON TO

THE U.S. CONGRESS.

THIS IS A VALID

CONSTITUTIONAL PROCESS THAT

OUR FOUNDING FATHERS

SPECIFICALLY WROTE IN THE

CONSTITUTION.

IF THEY DIDN'T WRITE IT INTO

THE CONSTITUTION TO BE USED,

THEN WHY DID THEY WRITE IT

IN?

David: BUT SUPPORTERS

HAVE AN UPHILL BATTLE.

THE MEDIA WILL NOT BE THEIR

FRIEND.

THE DANGER IS ONCE THE

OUTSIDE MEDIA STARTS TO GRAB

HOLD OF IT, THE ATTENTION IS

ON THE DIFFICULTY OF IT

HAPPENING.

David: STATE

SUCCESSION OPPONENTS WILL

KEEP FIGHTING BECAUSE THEY

SAY THE DISMISSIVE ATTITUDE

MUST END.

I FIND THE ARROGANT,

DISMISSIVE TO BE FURTHER

PROOF OF JUST HOW

DISCONNECTED THE URBAN IS

FROM THE RURAL.

David: MOVEMENTS LIKE

THIS IN COLORADO AND OTHER

STATES COULD BE JUST THE

BEGINNING.

THIS IS A NATIONAL

PROBLEM.

David: IT IS CALLED

VOTER DISCONTENT, WHERE THE

PEOPLE SAY THEY'VE HAD

ENOUGH AND THEY'RE CRYING

OUT FOR SOMETHING TO BE

DONE.

WE AT SOME POINT HAVE TO

FIGURE OUT A WAY TO GET OUR

POINT ACROSS, OR AT LEAST TO

HAVE ABLE TO HAVE A DIALOGUE

AND NOT BE IGNORED.

BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T SEEN

ANYTHING YET.

I THINK ALSO WHAT PEOPLE

WANT, WHETHER YOU LOOK AT IT

FROM THE LEFT OR RIGHT,

PEOPLE WANT GOVERNMENT TO

STAY OUT OF THEIR BUSINESS.

David: THE STATE OF

COLORADO REALLY HAS GONE

FROM A VERY CONSERVATIVE

STATE TO MORE OF A PURPLE

STATE, SOME WOULD SAY VERY

MUCH A LIBERAL STATE.

ONE OF THE REASONS THEY'RE

SAYING THAT IS FOR MEASURES

LIKE THIS, RECREATIONAL

MARIJUANA, NOW LEGAL IN

COLORADO.

THAT'S RIGHT.

IN JANUARY, THAT'S WHEN IT

BECAME LEGAL.

VOTERS APPROVED IT HERE IN

COLORADO.

IT IS KIND OF A LIBERTARIAN

THING.

AND A LOT OF CALIFORNIANS

COMING OUT TO COLORADO AND

HAVING A SAY IN COLORADO

POLITICS.

INDEED, NOW YOU CAN GO TO A

STORE AND PURCHASE MARIJUANA

FOR RECREATIONAL USE.

MY PERSONAL VIEWS ASIDE,

MY JOB IS TO CARRY FORTH THE

REGULATORY FRAMEWORK AND THE

ENFORCEMENT MEC MISMS OF

MECHANISMS IN A VERY

RESPONSIBLE MATTER.

BRAIN DEVELOPMENT IS FROM

AGE 10 WELL INTO OUR

MID-20s.

IT DISRUPTS THE DEVELOPMENT

OF CIRCUITS.

AND STUDIES SHOW REGULAR USE

WHEN YOUR AN ADOLESCENT IS

ASSOCIATED WITH A 6 TO

8-POINT DECREASE IN BRAIN

FUNCTION.

David: ALL RIGHT, WHEN

WE COME BACK, THE CHURCH

LADY GOING UNDERCOVER -- ALL

RIGHT, SHE IS NOT

UNDERCOVER, BUT SHE HAS A

GREAT STORY ABOUT SPORTS

GROUPS AND JESUS CHRIST

ALONG THE FORT RANGE OF

COLORADO.

WITNESSING FOR CHRIST, WHEN

WE COME BACK.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO OUR

COLORADO SHOW, "THE BRODY

FILE" ON THE ROAD, FROM

DYLAN, COLORADO.

ABOUT TWO HOURS WEST OF

DENVER.

THE CHURCH LADY ON THE CASE

HERE IN COLORADO.

WE BROUGHT HER ALONG, YOU

KNOW.

SHE TAKES A LOOK NOW AT THE

RED ROCK MINISTRY.

IT IS REALLY INTERESTING,

ABOUT HOW THEY ARE AFFECTING

LIVES FOR JESUS CHRIST, AND

IT ALLHAPPENS THROUGH

SPORTS.

HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: SCOTT'S

VISION OF A FULL-SCALE

SPORTS MINISTRY BEGAN EIGHT

YEARS AGO AT RED ROCK'S

CHURCH IN DENVER, COLORADO.

SHORTLY AFTER APPROACHING

HIS PASTOR WITH THE IDEA, A

VOLLEYBALL LEAGUE WAS BORN,

AND THE RED ROCK SPORTS

MINISTRY DEVELOPED FROM

THERE.

HE THOUGHT WHAT BETTER WAY

TO REACH OUT TO THOSE NOT

INTERESTED IN GOING TO

CHURCH.

WE'RE MEETING THE PEOPLE

OUTSIDE THE WALLS OF OUR

CHURCH IN IN THE COMMUNITY.

SPORTS IS ONE OF THE BEST

WAYS OF CONNECTING WITH

PEOPLE IN A NON-THREATENING

WAY.

Reporter: RED ROCK

SPORTS MINISTRY NOW HAS

YEAR-ROUNDLEAGUES, RANGING

FROM DODGEBALL TO BASEBALL

AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.

JENNY PLAYED SPORTS IN

COLLEGE, AND AFTER SHE

GRADUATED, HE HAS A HARD

TIME FINDING A HEALTHY

LIFESTYLE AND FINDING A NEW

CHURCH.

THE RED ROCK BOWLING LEAGUE

DOES BOTH.

I CAN FELLOWSHIP AND FIND

NEW COMMUNITIES THROUGH

SPORTS, AND IT WAS THE

PERFECT THING FOR ME.

I WAS GOING TO RED ROCK

FOR CLOSE TO TWO YEARS.

I SAT IN THE SECOND ROW, IN

THE SAME SPOT EVERY TIME,

AND NEVER REALLY GOT TO KNOW

ANYONE.

SO WHEN I FOUND OUT ABOUT

THE BOWLING LEAGUE, I KNEW I

NEEDED MORE CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY IN MY LIFE, AND

THAT WAS EASY FOR ME.

I CAN MEET PEOPLE IN A

NON-SCARY WAY.

Reporter: THE RED ROCK

SPORTS MINISTRY HERE IN

COLORADO HAS REALLY MADE AN

IMPACT WHEN IT COMES TO

AFFECTING LIVES FOR JESUS

CHRIST.

THOUSANDS HAVE SIGNED UP TO

TAKE PART IN THESE SPORTS

GROUPS BECAUSE ORGANIZERS

BELIEVE IT IS NOT JUST

IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE

YOU'RE PHYSICALLY FIT, BUT

SPIRITUALLY FIT AS WELL.

THERE ARE SO MANY

OPPORTUNITIES TO, YOU KNOW,

HAVE FUN WHILE WORKING OUT.

I THINK THAT IS THE HARDEST

THING NOWADAYS.

PEOPLE DON'T WANT THAT

HO-HUM.

THE 35 MINUTES ON A

TREADMILL.

YOU GET BORED.

THIS WAY YOU MEET NEW

PEOPLE, THERE IS FELLOWSHIP,

AND YOU'RE STILL GETTING A

GOOD WORKOUT.

Reporter: PEOPLE PRAY

AFTER THE GAMES, NOT

BEFORE.

IT HELPS CUT DOWN ON

UNSPORTSMAN-LIKE CONDUCT,

EVEN THOUGH PLAYERS ADMIT

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH

A LITTLE HEALTHY

COMPETITION.

I HAVE MET SO MANY PEOPLE

THAT HAVE STRUGGLED BUILDING

A COMMUNITY THAT AREN'T

CHRISTIANS.

I'LL INVITE THEM TO BE ON

THE BASKETBALL TEAM, AND

THEY'RE CAPTIVATED THAT WE

PRAY AFTERWARDS WITH THESE

PEOPLE, OUR COMPETITORS, OUR

OPPONENTS, THAT WE JUST WENT

TO WAR WITH IN THE GAMES,

AND WE'RE ABLE TO PUT THAT

ALL ASIDE AND COME BACK

TOGETHER AT THE END.

WE TRY TO BRING EVERYBODY

TOGETHER AT THE END OF THE

GAME, TO SHOW APPRECIATION

FOR THE FACT THEY'RE GETTING

TO PLAY A SPORT AND LESSEN

THOSE EMOTIONS A LITTLE BIT,

SO WE CAN LEAVE THE COURT OR

THE FIELD JUST BEING FRIENDS

AGAIN.

Reporter: MAINTAINING

CHRIST-LIKE FRIENDSHIPS

BETWEEN OPPOSING TEAMS MAY

BE ONE GOAL, BUT ANOTHER IS

KEEPING THEIR TEAMS AT A

HIGH SKILL LEVEL.

YOU'RE KIND OF TAKEN OUT

OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE, YOU

HAVE TO MEET NEW PEOPLE.

YOU'RE FORCED OUT OF YOUR

CIRCLE OF FRIENDS.

THE CULTURE OF OUR COMMUNITY

HAS BEEN GREAT BECAUSE THE

FOLLOWING SEASON, ALL OF A

SUDDEN YOU'RE DRAFTED ON A

NEW TEAM AND YOU'RE PLAYING

AGAINST THOSE FRIENDS THAT

YOU PLAYED AGAINST THE

SEASON BEFORE.

Reporter: IT HAS GROWN

BEYOND THE CHURCH WALLS AND

INTO MANY PARTS OF THE

COMMUNITY.

BRUCE SAYS THEY ARE CALLED

TO FILL THE VOID IN THE

HEARTS OF PEOPLE WHO NEED IT

THE MOST.

WE WORK WITH ORPHANAGES,

WE WORK WITH HOMELESS

PEOPLE, WE WORK WITH PEOPLE

WITH DISABILITIES.

WE JUST WANT TO GET

INVOLVED.

AS A CHURCH, WE WANT TO

BLESS THE COMMUNITY.

IT IS SO MANY STORIES THAT

WE HEAR WHERE THEY CREDIT

BEING INTRODUCED TO THE

CHURCH THROUGH THE SPORTS

MINISTRY, AND BEING

INTRODUCED TO THEIR NEW

COMMUNITY OF FRIENDS, AND

ULTIMATELY GIVING THEIR LIFE

TO THE LORD AND YON BEYOND

THAT, BEING BAPTIZED.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

SAYS BELIEVE IN WHAT A

SPORTS MINISTRY CAN DO AND

WATCH YOUR CHURCH GROW.

David: THE CHURCH

LADY, ON THE CAPE HERE IN

COLORADO.

ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME

BACK, ONE-ON-ONE WITH

SHERIFF COOK IN WELLS

COUNTY, COLORADO.

HE IS NOT GOING TO ENFORCE

SOME OF THE STRICTER GUN

LAWS.

WHY, YOU SAY?

THE ANSWER IS NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO

BEAUTIFUL DYLAN, COLORADO.

DOES IT GET ANY BETTER THAN

THIS?

THE SUN IS SHINING.

THE MOUNTAINS BEHIND ME ARE

JUST ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.

SHERIFF JOHN COOK, REMEMBER

THE NAME.

HE IS NOT GOING TO ENFORCE

ANY COLORADO GUN CONTROL

LAWS THAT HAVE BEEN PASSED

BY THE LIBERAL STATE

LEGISLATURE HERE IN DENVER.

HE IS ONE OF 55 SHERIFFS WHO

SAY, NO DICE, NOT GOING TO

DO IT.

HE BELIEVES THEY ARE, IN

ESSENCE, UNENFORCEABLE.

HERE IS SOME OF OUR

CONVERSATION.

THE STATE LEGISLATURE

PASSED SOME GUN CONTROL LAWS

EARLIER THIS YEAR.

AND THEY DID IT IN SUCH A

WAY THAT THEY DIDN'T REALLY

WANT ANY INPUT.

THEY HAD AN AGENDA.

SO THE SHERIFFS -- WE HAD

ABOUT 30 OF THE SHERIFFS

THAT WENT DOWN AND TESTIFIED

AT THE CAPITAL, OR TRIED TO

TESTIFY, ABOUT THE GUN

CONTROL BILLS BECAUSE WHAT

THEY WERE DOING WAS A

KNEE-JERK REACTION TO THE

AURORA SHOOTING AND THE

NEWTOWN SHOOTING LAST YEAR.

SO THEY FELT LIKE THEY HAD

TO DO SOMETHING.

WHAT THEY DID WAS SAID,

WELL, WE'RE LEGISLATORS.

WE HAVE TO GIVE THE

IMPRESSION WE'RE GOING TO DO

SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

THEY CAME UP WITH THESE

HORRIBLE, UNENFORCEABLE,

VAGUE LAWS ON GUN CONTROL.

JESUS CHRIST COULD HAVE COME

DOWN FROM HEAVEN AND

TESTIFIED AGAINST THESE

BILLS AND THEY STILL WOULD

HAVE PASSED THEM BECAUSE

THEY HAD AN AGENDA.

WE, AS SHERIFFS, SAID WE'RE

GOING TO SUE THE STATE OF

COLORADO AGAINST THESE GUN

CONTROL BILLS BECAUSE WE

FEEL THEY'RE

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

THAT'S OUR OPINION.

AND THEY'RE UNENFORCEABLE.

AND SO IT IS A SECOND

AMENDMENT VIOLATION AND A

14th AMENDMENT VIOLATION.

AND I SAID I WOULDN'T

ENFORCE THEM WHEN THEY

PASSED.

THEY'RE UNENFORCEABLE,

THEREFORE I'M NOT GOING TO

ENFORCE THEM.

IT IS ALL ABOUT PRIORITIES.

David: THAT IS SHERIFF

JOHN COOK HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE'RE GOING TO GO ABOUT

THREE HOURS FROM HERE, FROM

DYLAN, COLORADO, THE

BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAINS, TO THE

EASTERN PLAINS OF COLORADO.

DEER TRAIL, COLORADO.

WAIT UNTIL YOU MEET BILL

STEEL.

IF YOU'RE FLYING A DRONE

OVER HIS HOUSE, TAKE IT DOWN

OR ELSE HE WILL.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO DYLAN,

COLORADO.

THE SKI RESORT, 20 MINUTES

AWAY, BRECONRIDGE, COLORADO,

ABOUT 30 MINUTES AWAY.

WE WANT TO GO THREE HOURS

FROM HERE EAST, TO DEER

TRAIL COLORADO.

A SMALL TOWN, 500 PEOPLE OR

SO.

THE TOWN IS DIVIDED, AND IT

IS BECAUSE OF THIS GUY.

PHIL STEEL.

HE HAS BEEN THERE FOR A

WHILE.

HE HAS COME UP WITH A TOWN

ORDINANCE WHERE HE BASICALLY

WANTS TO SHOOT DRONES OUT OF

THE SKY IF THEY COME OVER

THE TOWN OF DEER TRAIL.

SOME FOLKS DON'T LIKE IT,

AND OTHERS DO, BUT EITHER

WAY, PHIL IS IN THE MIDDLE

OF A HEAP OF CONTROVERSY.

IT IS KIND OF OVER THE

TOP.

David: BILL STEEL

ISN'T PLAYING AROUND.

A BAYONET.

David: HE IS LOCKED

AND LOADED AND READY FOR

SOME DRONE ACTION IN DEER

TRAIL.

HE HAS EVEN BUILT A WATCH

TOWER, WHERE HE WOULD BE

ALLOWED TO SHOOT DOWN DRONES

IF HIS ORDINANCE PASSED.

SIGNED BY THE MAYOR AND

ME, THE AUTHOR OF THE

ORDINANCE.

David: AND IF THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DIDN'T

TRY TO STOP HIM.

THE ORDINANCE WAS WRITTEN

TOTALLY IN THE SPIRIT OF

CIVIL DEFENSE.

THIS COULD WORK WELL AS A

WATCH TOWER, FOR EXAMPLE.

I WOULD BE LOOKING FOR

SMALL, UNMANNED AERIAL

VEHICLES.

THEY WOULD COME IN A VARIETY

OF DIFFERENT

CONFIGURATIONS.

THE ORDINANCE SETS FORTH A

NUMBER OF CRITERIA FOR I

IDENTIFYING ONE.

IT MUST BE WINDOW LESS WITH

NO APPARENT MEANS OF EG

EGRESS OR ENTRY.

IT MUST BE TOO SMALL FOR

HUMAN IN HABITATION.

IT MUST BE AN UNMANNED

VEHICLE.

IT HAS TO BE FLYING UNDER

1,000 FEET.

AND GRAVITY DOES THE REST.

David: WHEN PHIL CAME

DOWN FROM THAT WATCH TOWER,

HE SHOWED UP HIS SOUPED UP

GUN.

THE SCOPE IS REALLY

NICE.

IT ACTUALLY -- I WAS

ACTUALLY ABLE TO

SUCCESSFULLY ENGAGE A ROCKET

AT 600 FEET WITH THAT.

THE OTHER IS A LASER.

AND A TACTICAL FLASHLIGHT.

David: WHY IS PHIL

DOING THIS?

HE SAYS WHILE TECHNOLOGY CAN

BE GOOD, IT IS NOT IN THIS

CASE.

THIS IS CYBERSPACE, WHERE

CYBERSPACE MEETS THE REAL

SPACE AND TIME.

THE GOVERNMENT IS TELLING US

THAT DRONES HAVE MANY GOOD

AND BENEFICIAL PURPOSES,

WILDFIRES, LIVESTOCK AND ALL

OF THIS.

I'LL TELL YOU THE REALITY,

THOUGH.

THE REALITY IS A LAW THAT

PASSED IN 2012, THAT TAKES

EFFECT IN DECEMBER OF 2015,

REDEFINING NA NAVIGATIONAL

AIR SPACE, ALL THE WAY DOWN

TO THE GROUND LEVEL, ACROSS

EVERY SQUARE INCH OF

AMERICA.

IN THIS COUNTRY, WE HAVE THE

INTERSTATE COMMERCE CLAUSE

OF THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.

THAT MEANS THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT CAN ONLY REGULATE

THINGS THAT AFFECT

INTERSTATE COMMERCE.

THE SPACE THAT THE AIRPLANES

FLY EXTENDS ALL THE WAY DOWN

TO THE GROUND, THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT WILL BE ABLE TO

REGULATE EVERY ACTIVITY IN

HUMAN LIFE.

David: AND HE GOES ON

TO SAY THESE DRONES COULD

HAVE DEVIOUS PURPOSES.

IN FIVE YEARS, THE SKIES

ARE GOING TO BE BLACK WITH

THESE THINGS.

THERE ARE GOING TO BE

MILLIONS OF THEM.

AND WHENTHERE ARE, WHEN

THERE ARE MILLIONS, SOME OF

THEM WILL BE USED BY DRUG

DEALERS TO DELIVER DRUGS.

OTHERSBE USED BY

PEOPLE FOR STALKING,

VOYERISM, PEDOPHILES, CASING

NEIGHBORHOODS FOR

BURGLARIES.

David: WHERE DOES IT

END?

THIS CREATES CRIME.

David: STEEL'S PLAN IS

DIVIDING THE SMALL TOWN OF

DEER TRAIL.

SHARON MORGAN, WHO WORKS AT

A LOCAL GAS STATION, HAS

CONCERNS.

THE WHOLE PLAN IS VERY

WELL-THOUGHT OUT.

I JUST DON'T THINK IT IS

RIGHT FOR DEER TRAIL.

Reporter: WHY IS THAT?

BECAUSE WE'RE NOT AGAINST

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

THAT'S MY MONEY FLYING UP IN

THE AIR AS A DRONE.

IT IS HERE TO HELP US WITH

AGRICULTURE, HOW OUR CROPS

GROW, THINGS LIKE THAT.

IT IS NOT HERE TO SPY ON

US.

WE'RE DEER TRAIL.

REALLY?

LITERALLY, WE'RE DEER

TRAIL.

WHAT IS THERE TO SPY ON?

Reporter: MORGAN SAYS

STEEL'S PLAN HAS AT TIMES

MADE THEM THE BUTT OF

JOKES.

IT IS A FRUSTRATION FOR

THE TOWN.

THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO

THINK IT IS IMPORTANT, AND

THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE WHO

THINK IT HAS SHED A VERY BAD

LIGHT ON THIS TOWN.

IT HAS KIND OF MADE US A

JOKE.

I MEAN, MY BROTHER CALLED ME

FROM ALBUQUERQUE AND ASKED

ME IF I WAS BUILDING A

BIGGER GARAGE SO I COULD

HOUSE ALL MY OF CARS SO THEY

WOULDN'T GET HIT WITH THE

SHOTGUN SHELLS.

AND HE SAID, CAN YOU GIVE ME

A DRONE LICENSE.

David: BUT STEEL SAYS

HE IS NOT GOING TO BE

DETERRED.

HE IS CARRYING ON.

THIS IS ASSERTING OUR

RIGHTS TO THE SOVEREIGNTY OF

OUR TOWN AND ITS CITIZENS.

AND THE SOVEREIGNTY AN OF

THE AIR SPACE OF THE TOWN.

David: BILL STEEL HERE

ON "THE BRODY FILE."

WHEN WE COME BACK, A

6-YEAR-OLD AND SEXUAL

HARASSMENT?

OY-GEVALT.

FROM COLORADO, BACK IN A

MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO DYLAN,

COLORADO, HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE'RE ON THE ROAD ONCE

AGAIN.

TIME NOW FOR AN OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK, MEDICAL

MARIJUANA COULD BE AN OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK, BUT

WE'VE GOT A BETTER ONE.

HERE IT IS.

WELL, I WANT YOU TO MEET

6-YEAR-OLD HUNTER.

HE GOES TO AN ELEMENTARY

SCHOOL IN CANYON CITY,

COLORADO.

IT'S ABOUT AN HOUR OR SO

WEST OF COLORADO SPRINGS.

GUESS WHAT, FOLKS?

HE HAS GOT A RECORD.

THAT'S RIGHT, THIS

6-YEAR-OLD HAS A RECORD OF

SEXUAL HARASSMENT.

WAIT A MINUTE.

HOLD ON.

HERE IS WHAT HE DID?

HE KISSED A GIRL ON THE

CHEEK, OR WAS IT THE HAND?

WE'RE NOT QUITE SURE.

BUT HERE IS HIS SIDE OF THE

STORY.

AND I WENT OVER AND

KISSED HER ON THE HAND.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.

THE OTHER CHILDREN SAW IT

AND WENT TO THE MUSIC

TEACHER.

AND THAT WAS THE DAY THAT I

HAD THE MEETING WITH THE

PRINCIPAL, WHERE SHE FIRST

SAID SEXUAL HARASSMENT.

David: NOW THEY'RE

SAYING, INSTEAD OF SEXUAL

HARASSMENT, IT WILL BE

CALLED SEXUAL MISCONDUCT.

BUT EITHER WAY, THE SCHOOL

OFFICIALS SAY IT IS STILL ON

HIS RECORD AND IT WILL STAY

ON HIS RECORD.

BY THE WAY, HUNTER, IF YOU

HAVE A RECORD YOU CAN'T WORK

FOR "THE BRODY FILE," BUT IT

WILL BE HOPEFULLY CLEARED

SOMETIME.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, WE'LL SEE

YOU IN THE STUFFY OLD

STUDIO.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
