3:08 am
and children have been living like this outside of the consulate. when the pandemic started president nicolas maduro sent airplanes to repatriate those who wanted to leak but now the doors of the consulate are shocked right. we have nothing left anymore we're living from charity and getting desperate and not a peep from our government we are undocumented and we can't ask chile for help. the u.n. special representative for the news whale in migrants and refugees system of government is laying out conditions for people to return one is a quarantine period at the border and the other is more of a long low lying. more intelligence of investigation of who east coming back and what would be the true motivations for that richard that you believe is slowing down the number of people that they are allowing back in yes but yes. every day more people arrive at the camp trying to find comfort in numbers
3:09 am

3:10 am
the death nearly 20 years ago let's cross over to mike hanna who has the very latest and it seems that the president is reacting to well at least the 1st of the truth of the tweets. well indeed president trump has tweeted within the last few minutes that twitter is now interfering in the 2020 election he says in a follow up tweet he adds that twitter is eroding your silly saying that his claims about mail in voting are incorrect and he says style that it is stifling free speech and he continues and as president. i will not allow that so certainly a very strong attack on twitter which earlier in the day had put fact checking labels on 2 of his tweets dealing with mail in voting twitter described these as incorrect and put a lead in a reference to news reports on mail in voting pointing out that it is not as the
3:11 am
president claims fraudulent so certainly this spat between president trump and the forum of twitter is continuing to rage on indeed of course sort of continues in the propagation of a murder conspiracy theory that seems to have no basis in fact at all and that's getting him in hot water again with the with the family of the deceased. well indeed yes the stills with a woman called laura died some 1000 years ago after the medical examiner found that she had an undiagnosed heart condition that she fell over and hit her head now she was an employee at the time of joe scarborough he was then a florida congressman he is now a talk show host who has been very critical of president trump in recent months now president trump lashed out at joe scarborough implying that he was guilty of murder
3:12 am
now. as husband timothy has written a letter to the head of twitter the c.e.o. asking that these tweets dealing with his wife's death than a coup seeing scarborough of being responsible for them be taken down twitter has responded saying it can't do so at this stage but is examining ways in which this could happen but this just goes to highlight president trump's insistence on using any ammunition against any of his critics and certainly the letter from her husband has raised many questions here in d.c. and around the united states about the impropriety of president trump's attacks on a television critic using the body that dead body of a woman from 1000 years before for the update thanks mike hanna of our correspondent in washington d.c. well still ahead here on al-jazeera the u.s. city where spy planes are being used in

3:18 am
a black man for 5 minutes the scene bears an eerie resemblance to a 2014 incident in new york city where another black man eric garner says his last words to the police officers restraining him i can't breathe after officers were cleared the guard case led to protests across the u.s. police say george floyd had been resisting arrest bystanders said the force was clearly excessive and when it comes to excessive force in the us the pendulum has increasingly swung away from police in toward the alleged victim officer jason van dyke is now serving a 7 year prison term for this 2014 shooting in chicago with luke kwan mcdonnell. now protesters have printed new signs with the same familiar words i can't breed john hendren al jazeera chicago. charles wilson joins me now live from scott via
3:19 am
skype from providence in rhode island he's a retired police determined to national chairman of the national association of black law enforcement officers could talking with us live on al-jazeera so it seems the system never seems to learn and now another tragic death at the hands of the police we do have to be careful about what we say while an investigation continues but was your initial reaction to what millions of people have seen go viral or would people have to understand and accept is that one institution of policing is inherently biased against the color low income and it was designed to be that way my counterparts must begin to accept that as their foundation secondly when when you consider this particular situation. once
3:20 am
you've got a person under restraint there's no need for any further use of force and by and no me should you. are be in a situation where you're raining on bare neck but over 5 minutes mr wilson can i then ask them is is a need in the neck approved police restraining procedure in any state in the united states not that i'm aware of and are outraged that i've been in law enforcement for 45 years i've never seen that as an approved. method. taking the breakdown the suspect was asking for help he was asking to bring . this suspect was asking to breathe we heard that very clearly on the video what i
3:21 am
found i think what millions of others found very disturbing but there were police officers around that situation that didn't advise their colleague to let up to give the the the member of the public. the chance to actually breathe are you surprised that the he took no notice of his colleagues after you know i'm not sure. that why all 4 our producers were fired i have no doubts about that what lessons have been left through who saw him down and the other 3 who get nothing what lessons have been learned. since you might say the death of for example steven clark who was who was shot with a phone in his hand mistaken for
3:22 am
a gun that we had alton sterling shot for selling c.d.'s in baton rouge and 2016 and most recently. in georgia shot for jogging it seems that this is a going reoccurrence and lessons are not being learned. i think that. i think that it's going to end up being an issue. better policy better training better higher reading procedures if you're hiring people who. have no concern for the general welfare of the people that you're going to be meeting you've got the wrong people on the job.
