Why Police Are Asking Paramedics to Inject Some Suspects with Ketamine

Paramedics administer ketamine and other sedatives during arrests when they’re medically necessary, so why are some police officers asking for them? VICE News’ Roberto Ferdman talks to paramedics and a victim of the practice.

Inside Mexico’s Warring Cartels and the Millions of People They’ve Displaced

For decades, the Mexican government has struggled to figure out what to do about warring cartels. And that’s led to a massive and mostly ignored crisis: Entire towns are being displaced by violence, leaving ghost towns behind.

The problem is so severe — and stubborn — that a recent study concluded that just between 2011 and 2017 as many as 8 million people were displaced within the country because of violence stemming from the constant battle for territory. But there are virtually no laws, programs, public policy or official government initiatives to help those displaced. And, because people flee their homes individually or in families — not in caravans — the problem has largely stayed out of the public eye.

Meanwhile, armed groups have been moving in, making many of the neighborhoods their own.

For the past year, VICE News’ Roberto Ferdman has been following the story of hundreds of displaced families, and the violent war that has destroyed their towns.

Welcome to the second episode of The Impeachment Show:

1:00 – The House Impeachment Inquiry is now public, here’s what happened.

2:30 – Michael Moynihan sits down with Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib. “I believe too much in our country. We’re not going to fail the American people.”

8:40 – Olivia Nuzzi, Washington Correspondent for New York Magazine and comedian Judy Gold join the panel.

The Generational Divide That Could Kill Legal Weed In New Jersey (HBO)

The race to legalize recreational marijuana is on in New Jersey, and not everyone in the black community is happy about it.

New Jersey’s governor Phil Murphy has made legal weed one of his pet issues, pitching it as a social justice issue and promising to legalize the drug in New Jersey by the end of this year. If he succeeds, the state would become just the ninth state (not including Washington D.C.) to legalize the drug. It would also become just the second state to do it legislatively, since it will be decided by the state’s congress instead of by its voters.

But opposition is mounting, and not just from older, white, conservative politicians. In fact, one of the loudest skeptics is New Jersey’s Legislative Black Caucus, which could sway the vote in November.

Roberto Ferdman attended a hearing held by the black caucus where older members of the black community shared their worries and warned about the downsides of legal weed. He also traveled to Los Angeles to chat with New Jersey native and former NBA player Al Harrington, who was taught to hate marijuana. He now has a successful weed business out west, and he’s itching to bring back home.

American Workers Are Learning That Shrimpin’ Ain’t Easy (HBO)

For decades, American shrimp boats have depended on foreign workers to handle one of the industry’s toughest jobs: ripping the heads off millions of freshly caught shrimp. But this year, amid a nationwide immigration crackdown, they’ve been forced to bring on inexperienced locals instead—and hope the new hires don’t quit once they realize what they’ve signed up for. Roberto Ferdman traveled to Brownsville, Texas at the beginning of peak shrimping season.

Asset Forfeiture in Texas Creates An Unlikely Alliance (HBO)

In Texas, a public fight has broken out over a strategy used to fight drug crime: Civil asset forfeiture, which lets police officers seize property from suspected criminals. Opposition to the tactic is uniting two groups who don’t usually get along: lawbreakers, and conservative politicians. VICE News Tonight correspondent Roberto Ferdman goes to Austin, Texas to see how this law is impacting people’s lives who aren’t actually convicted crimes.

The Canadian Dream: VICE News Tonight on HBO (Full Segment)

The crackdown on immigration in the United States under the Trump administration has turned Buffalo, New York into a hiding spot for undocumented immigrants hoping to escape the Department of Homeland Security and eventually make their way to Canada, where they can claim refugee status.

VICE News Tonight correspondent Roberto Ferdman followed José, who recently decided he had no other alternative, as he fled the United States to make his journey to Canada and restart his life. He sought sanctuary in a church in Buffalo for weeks, where his family joined him so they could sneak their way up to the border.

Charter School Regulations In Louisiana (HBO)

Betsey De Vos’s confirmation as Secretary of Education comes with the expectation that she will be a strong ally for charter schools. Charter schools are publicly funded but are run like small businesses – it’s the state’s responsibility to regulate which are succeeding and which are falling short. But judging the efficacy of charters isn’t always easy.

In Louisiana, where the number of charters has grown significantly since Hurricane Katrina, the state is still figuring out how to manage the system. Roberto Ferdman visited to explore how the original promise of charters – creating the opportunity for more diverse and specialized schools – hasn’t come to be.

Repopulating Cape Breton: VICE News Tonight on HBO (Full Segment)

Sisters Heather Coulombe and Sandee MacLean have received more than 100,000 applications over the past four months to work a minimum wage job in their country store called the Farmer’s Daughter in Whycocomagh on Cape Breton Island off the coast of Nova Scotia. All they had to do is promise their workers three acres of their land.

Coulombe and MacLean own more than 100 acres of forested land on Breton Island. When it became clear that their store needed more workers, they came up with their unique offer to trade work for land. Many of their applicants are seeking a new way of life in addition to a new job.

Coulombe and MacLean say there’s only one requirement that each applicant must meet to be considered: they must plan to permanently live on Breton Island, which has seen its year-round population shrink rapidly in recent years.

“We don’t want anyone who is going to come and then leave,” MacLean told VICE News correspondent Roberto Ferdman. “What we’re looking for is that they see themselves here.”

Follow A Factory Worker On Her Last Shift Before The Plant Was Closed: VICE News Tonight On HBO

Last week, Kraft shut down a 44-year-old factory in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, putting more than 400 people out of work. It’s one of the seven facilities accounting for roughly 2,600 jobs that Kraft has pledged to eliminate since July 2015, when it was acquired by Heinz.

“When I started here, this parking lot was full of employees,” former Kraft Heinz employee Denise Mooney told VICE News correspondent Roberto Ferdman. She worked at the factory for more than a decade. “As the years have gone by, and as the months have gone by, it’s gotten smaller and smaller.”

This segment originally aired Nov. 18, 2016, on VICE News Tonight on HBO.

Four-Day School Weeks Are The New Normal In Oklahoma (HBO)

This segment originally aired Oct. 21, 2016, on VICE News Tonight on HBO.

One third of all Oklahoma school districts are now operating on a four-day schedule.

Oklahoma has cut education funding per student more than any other state over the last 8 years. In the past, Oklahoma has compensated for funding cuts with oil revenue, but oil prices have declined in recent years.

“Teachers have been reluctant,” principal Nathan Gray told VICE News correspondent Roberto Ferdman. “You’re now forced to cover all the curriculum, all the testing that’s required by the state, in four days.”

In Oklahoma’s Noble school district, all schools are closed on Fridays to save money, one principal oversees two elementary schools to avoid hiring a second administrator, and the district superintendent also works bus duty.

Gray says a four-day school week isn’t what anyone wanted, but it was the only way to cope with the cuts. “This was our best way to survive.”
