Like when a long histories. Continue on did we stop doing things like that to people. Electricity a day it's Prince Charles is ordering someone to be be headed today than when I was 17100. I mean it was hanging 1970s. Remember the last he had seen. That was the last he would we used and then some of that stuff still goes on in the desert. You think about it like firing squads those aren't used in the US anymore. Hangings are used in the US when you think of firing squad would be more humane than say the electric chair. Mean not that I am looking out for the humanity of someone who is kidnapped and killed a child per say. But it's interesting to me that that's the one and a uniter he's been used in the Villa out that in the united artistry that one went away we're not gonna fire upon. But will still Cindy's electric chair which to me is more barbaric and the firing squad. And is that even used anymore anywhere. You can't work question can you at all is it into state just came requested guests. You request that well because it's. Oh yeah by firing squad hang on. Them. Utah I'm going to be really amazed by you if you. Got that right. You talk and one others may be one others aren't even though there's another one.

After the lord of the about a state prison was unable to find five and then to form the firing squad. Me a shooting machine was that built to carry out executions. Get Utah had won in 1960. Now that we have. Here again Scott execution by firing squad was banned in Utah in 2004. Broken while accurate but that and was not retroactive. Three inmates on Utah's death row have the firing squad set as their method of execution or. And Idaho bandit in 2009. Here temporarily leaving Oklahoma. As the only state in the union utilizing this method of excuse and. I think and Powell I'm not a fan of drawing and ordering in Iraqi People but thank you reporting.

And see I get a all the work Bundy. The Britain also burst onto everything is fine but you know right there are. And it's an Ocalan. Who did well this said. A couple at the data over Thursday and others say. It was going to govern so butter. Such ice time and hope that he died. I gotta tell you might do about exploded. It'll save you went still. Am god and it's a situation. That our isolation. Audio that. The principal on days and it took it. But back. Reference to connect up here. What pirate didn't have not seen that movie to be viewed him. But I what I read about this brown. A group called allergy research education. Bought bear. Paris based group that owns it bill would be the allergy issues to educate people. The bank that was that they are actually turn to chill or. And there was malice and ball there and I guess earlier in the movie. I actually. The other characters in the area that is great. Although they were all but they're physically. Like. The joy that this person going to dot opening and I think now or in the biggest speech but it. It could be. You know like one it is. Gold at these allergies and believe that the ball is. In my ginger is going to be one of course. I you know it's that there is still. Don't have the need to get the problem I just. I just urge you to be. And educate yourself about the realities of the situation because. Anyway it is like it is not annoying brash did not gluten allergy that's. Chile. This. Understand your point Erica and and your very well spoken but are popular films. Especially those geared towards children throughout the years filled with examples of a bullying to some extent Rudolph the red nosed reindeer comes to mind. I. I think created you know there are a lot of the a lot of shows out there where bullying you sort of learn how to write and I come back that they. I think that is built over the top was the fact that they were hoping that the guy back. Ryanair right well and I say this Eric what happened to your son in school to me that's assault. Saying you're going to do something that caused the death of another student that is assault. Tort Kelly resources toward callus when you're thinking of redneck yes it's called can't call us and for the two of you listening who maybe know someone who knows someone that does through that. Was Taco Bell really trying to offend people would tower across the nano. But at Eric's point a bow. That you know in in the movie from what he understands it and he was fair in the sense that he said. He had never seen the movie he was going off of an email that he received from this group called fair I believe it was food allergies so I'm. Yes it's my understanding having seen a small clip of the movie this morning on Good Morning America. That they're throwing the blackberries at this mr. McGregor not just to bully him but also. Thinking he'll dot. From the blueberries or come in contact with them. Understand that argument and certainly that's not a pleasant thing to say or think about. But think about all the cartoons that we watched when we were. Yeah it's. But we're that's stepping on diesel and hitting your face that's no you know kind of like almost like Larry Moe and curly type slapstick. Physical. You at Yosemite Sam pointing his god and people's faces. And blowing it all off Bannister I mean how many times did you see. A character given a center at. Times if you did you see the the beat of Donald Duck. Go flying under the back of his head because he'd been shot in the face by his seventies yes I mean we didn't run out and start shooting people. When we were thirteen years older ten years older and school. But it didn't happen. People smoke cigarettes. In cartoons. And we dangerous drugs personal desires because we sought and cartoon and look cool. I never beat a mouse with a broom. Our broken Gartner. I. Thank you. Get clear. I'll need her children he. I'm Adam. Right well we'll leave it at them juniors and you're gonna have a reaction art your. Sergeant in the room with them and would your reaction at not chill. Out there actually yes. But it certainly is obviously in your mouth. It's a child at current market hatchet and then pastor. And no amount. Then you can however. There isn't mine and meet you recommend like children that mean apparently from other kids that once. That didn't we that this stigma tied it even more and it exclude it and it it's. Make them stand outing them more. And actually. We can that are other than you know maybe he's actually a little bit more here about. The incredibly important but it. There are other things and we. You don't think they're romantic weekend. And stigma. And it you know hit that excluded and they write them he actually does it. Paper you don't. Have you seen any deaths have there been any deaths here from a food allergy. Not that I have and I've been hitting that serve. I've been at that part of that credit. And I and I and minimizing the title is read your odds of getting eaten by a shark are greater I'm not minimizing it times. When you look at the cases across the country every year and I'm not minimizing and this is your child you would be worried about that sharp right. But I always read that you are more likely to be eaten and killed by a shark in your diet food allergy statistically. I don't know that I'm back in but I would say yeah I mean it appears. We have to be educated and how we give them time actually for cute allergy action plan. And if you all of it your child will be on him. Are you suggesting as a nurse. Who specializes in food allergies. And the food allergy table at the elementary school is unnecessary. I'm so glad you called Denver because our school we had not free I island.
