The Young Turks - 3.11.15: The Angel Of Death, Pope Francis, Obama, Jon Stewart, Morning Joe & Man Taunts Cops

Cenk hosting today. A solo fighter in Iraq that has been dubbed The Angel of Death is a solo killer that is fighting ISIS. He has become an Iraqi hero after pictures of him have been circulating on the internet of him wielding axes, swords, and big machine guns. Since he’s “our bad guy” he gets praise. Since Utah continues to have troubles with their lethal injection procedure for capital punishment, the firing squad is being proposed to be brought back. Cenk compares the brutality of this system to the guillotine & beheadings by terrorists. Pope Francis spoke about elections and claims that there should be free and fair elections not influenced by outside money. In an interview with a magazine, Jon Stewart went after President Obama’s lack of effort vs his promises for change.

The Morning Joe panel addressed one aspect of the viral racist video out of OU after rapper Waka Flocka changed his mind about going to perform there. Mika and Bill Kristol blamed rap and Waka’s lyrics for why the frat boys were using the word nigger. Ana wonders if Mika has ever made an intelligent point on Morning Joe. A trash man in an affluent neighborhood in Atlanta decided to pick up garbage too early, 5am. After residents complained, the city attorney had him arrested and sent to jail for 30 days. The city caught so much negative attention from the story that they suspended his 30 day sentence. A Michigan man wielding a gun was confronted by police in front of a high school and was let go after he taunted him. Video of his confrontation. Cenk and Ana disagree on the reason they decided not to shoot him in the street. Cenk thinks its based on that fact he was Black, but Ana disagrees.
