COLBERT REPORT. CONGRATULATIONS,TO THEM. ALWAYS WELL DESERVED.

ONCE AGAIN. GREAT JOB. BUTFIRST, OBVIOUSLY, THE BIG NEWS

OF THE LAST FEW WEEKS, THE TOWNOF FERGUSON, MISSOURI.

WHERE THE SHOOTING BY POLICE OFTEENAGER MICHAEL BROWN HAS

SPARKED A SERIES OF PROTESTS,WHICH IN TURN SPARKED A LET'S

SAY STERN RESPONSE BY POLICEWHO APPEAR TO BE

AUDITIONING FORROBO COP. IT'S A, IT'S A STORY

THAT HAS A LOT OF PEOPLEOUTRAGED AND UPSET.

>> I CAME BACK FROM VACATIONBECAUSE I'M FURIOUS.

>> OF COURSE YOU ARE. AN UNARMEDBLACK TEENAGER GUNNED DOWN

IN THE STREETS BY POLICE UNDERSUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES.

WHO WOULDN'T CUT THEIR VACATIONSHORT TO REGISTER THEIR FURY.

YOU'D HAVE TO BE A MONSTER OR INMY CASE ENJOYING A PARTICULARLY

NICE VACATION.

BUT GOOD ON YOU, MR. O'REILLY,FOR COMING BACK.

UNLESS OF COURSE YOU'RE FURIOUSABOUT SOMETHING ELSE.

>> FURIOUS ABOUT HOW THESHOOTING DEATH OF 18-YEAR-OLD

MICHAEL BROWN IS BEINGREPORTED, AND HOW VARIOUS

PEOPLE ARE REACTING TO IT.

>> Jon: YES!

THAT IS THE OUTRAGE.

THE SHOOTING OF MICHAEL BROWNAND ANY LACK OF TRANSPARENCY

FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENTRESPONSIBLE FOR SAID INCIDENT IS

OUTRAGEOUS IN HOW IT HAS BEENREPORTED.

[LAUGHING]>> AND, I GUESS THAT'S NOT THE

ONLY REASON TO BE ANGRY.

>> IS HE GOING TO GET A FARESHAKE, THIS OFFICER?

>> THERE HAS BEEN A RUSH TOJUDGMENT.

>> ERIC HOLDER FLIES INTOFERGUSON.

>> YEAH.

>> YOU KNOW, WITH HIS, WITH HIS,YOU KNOW, SUPER HERO CAPE.

>> THIS MANTRA OF THE UNARMEDBLACK TEENAGER SHOT BY A WHITE

COP. YOU KNOW, THAT DESCRIPTION

IN AND OF ITSELF ACTUALLY COLORSTHE WAY

IN WHICH WE LOOK AT THIS STORY.

>> Jon: YES, DESCRIBING THEACTUAL FACTS OF THE CASE.

[LAUGHING]>> Jon: REALLY DOES COLOR THE

WAY WE LOOK AT IT.

WHITE COP, SHOOTS UNARMED BLACKTEEN.

DOES SOUND TERRIBLE.

WHERE AS SAY HERO COP KILLSALIEN HUNTING HUMANS FOR SPORT

WOULD PUT A COMPLETELY DIFFERENTSPIN ON THINGS.

WHICH THOUGH A VERY ACCURATEDESCRIPTION OF THE PLOT OF

PREDATOR TWO, IS IN THIS CASEIS -- NOT WHAT HAPPENED.

AND, YOU KNOW WHAT THERE ARE SOMANY OTHER STORIES OUT THERE.

>> WHY AREN'T WE COVERING NEWYORK.

>> WHY AREN'T WE COVERING BLACKON BLACK CRIME.

>> Jon: YES! WHY ALL THEINTEREST IN HOLDING POLICE

OFFICERS TO A HIGHERSTANDARD THAN GANGS?

THEY BOTH FLASH COLORS. AND,YES ONE OF THEM HAS BEEN

SWORN TO PROTECT AND DEFEND, BUTSTILL --

>> WELL, THIS WEEKEND 42 PEOPLEWERE SHOT IN CHICAGO.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T SEE THEPROTESTS.

I DON'T SEE THE ANGER.

>> IF I WERE AFRICAN-AMERICAN IWOULD BE OUTRAGED THAT MORE

JOURNALISTS AREN'T COVERINGWHAT'S HAPPENING IN CHICAGO AND

MORE OUTRAGED THAT PEOPLE LIKEAL SHARPTON AND JESSE JACKSON

DON'T HEAD TO THOSE AREAS.

>> Jon: YES. WHAT COULD EXPLAINTHE LACK OF OUTRAGE ABOUT

AL SHARPTON AND HIS ILK NOTDOING ANYTHING

ABOUT BLACK ON BLACKVIOLENCE IN CHICAGO.

>> WITH CHICAGO'S VIOLENCEMAKING NATIONAL HEADLINES, A

GROUP LED BY THE REVEREND ALSHARPTON PLANS TO CONVENE AN

ANTI-VIOLENCE SUMMIT OF NATIONALCIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS HERE.

>> Jon: OH, THAT'S RIGHT BECAUSEAFRICAN AMERICAN LEADERS DID

HOLD A SUMMIT ABOUT THAT INNOVEMBER. AND HAVE MET AT

LEAST THREE TIMES IN THE CITYIN JUST THE LAST 13 MONTHS.

WHICH IS NOT TO SAY THAT IT'SBEEN EFFECTIVE. BUT TAKEN ALONG

WITH THE PRESIDENT'S MYBROTHER'S KEEPER INITIATIVE

WHICH ATTEMPTS TO ADDRESS THISVIOLENCE, ALONG WITH THE

COUNTLESS VIGILS AND MARCHESWITHIN THESE VIOLENCE TORN

COMMUNITIES MEANS THEY ARETRYING ACTUALLY TO DO SOMETHING.

YOU SEE, YOU BEING IGNORANT OFTHOSE ATTEMPTS DOESN'T MEAN

THE ISSUE ITSELF IS BEINGIGNORED IN THE SAME WAY THAT

WHEN IT SNOWS WHEREYOU LIVE DOESN'T MEAN THE WORLD

ISN'T GETTING HOTTER. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Jon: [BLEEP]. OH, YOU KNOWWHAT? THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE

BOTHERING YOU, ISN'T THERE?

>> WHEN A COP PULLS ME OVER ISAY, I PUT MY HANDS OUTSIDE OF

THE CAR. IF I'M CARRYING AWEAPON, WHICH I'M LICENSED TO

CARRY IN NEW YORK, THE FIRSTTHING I TELL THE POLICE OFFICER

IS "OFFICER I WANT YOU TO KNOW IHAVE A LEGAL FAREARM IN THE

CAR."

>> Jon: AND THEN I BRACE MYSELFFOR THE TASER.

WELL, WITHOUT GETTING INTO THEFACT YOU GET PULLED OVER SO MUCH

BY THE COPS THAT SOMETIMESYOU'RE CARRYING A WEAPON.

SOMETIMES YOU'RE NOT. I DON'TKNOW.

DEPENDS ON HOW I'M FEELING THATDAY.

BUT, CONTINUE.

>> I OFTEN WOULD EVEN TAKE MY --STEP OUT OF THE CAR, LIFT MY

SHIRT UP SO HE COULDSEE WHERE THE GUN IS.

[LAUGHING]>> Jon: YOU REALLY DO HAVE NO

[BEEP] IDEA, DO YOU?

YOU REALLY DON'T. BASICALLY,

BASICALLY YOU'RE SAYING...[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

IF ONLY MICHAEL BROWN INSTEAD OFHOLDING

HIS HANDS OVER HIS HEAD HADREACHED DOWN TO HIS WAIST ND

LIFTED UP HIS SHIRT TO SHOW THEGUN HE DID NOT ACTUALLY HAVE,

WELL, THIS WHOLE TRAGEDY COULDOF BEEN AVOIDED.

DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THAT LIFEIN THIS COUNTRY IS INHERENTLY

DIFFERENT FOR WHITE PEOPLE ANDBLACK PEOPLE?

>> A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE TRYINGMAKE THIS, DANA, ABOUT BLACK AND

WHITE. AND TRYING TO MAKE THISABOUT RACE.

>> THIS IS PART OF THIS EFFORTTO MAKE IT EVERYTHING ABOUT

RACE.

>> IS THIS A STORY ABOUT RACE?DO WE KNOW THAT?

>> I THINK IT'S PLACING THE RACECARD.

AND I THINK IT'S DISGRACEFUL.

>> THE ONLY RACIAL DIVIDE THATIS BEING CREATED HERE IS

BEING CREATED BYTHE RACE HATERS.

>> YOU KNOW WHO TALKS ABOUTRACE, RACISTS.

[LAUGHING]>> Jon: DID YOU JUST -- HE WHO

SMELT IT DEALT IT RACISM.

DID YOU REALLY? YOU SMELT ITDEALT IT RACISM?

ALRIGHT.

[ APPLAUSE ]>> Jon: FORGET THAT IN

FERGUSON, 94% OF THE POLICE AREWHITE AND 63% OF THE PEOPLE ARE

BLACK, FORGET THAT 92% OFPOLICE SEARCHES AND 86% OF CAR

STOPS ARE FOR BLACK PEOPLE.FORGET THAT THE WHITE MUNICIPAL

GOVERNMENT FINANCES NEARLY AQUARTER OF ITS ANNUAL BUDGET

THROUGH THE FINESDISPROPORTIONATELY LEVELED

AGAINST THE BLACK POPULATION.FORGET THAT THE HISTORY OF THIS

TOWN INCLUDES THIS TASTY NUGGET.

>> A 52-YEAR-OLD MAN NAMED HENRYDAVIS SAID THAT FOUR FERGUSON

POLICE OFFICERS BEAT HIM ANDTHEN CHARGED HIM WITH DAMAGING

GOVERNMENT PROPERTY BECAUSE HISBLOOD HAD GOTTEN ON THE

OFFICERS' UNIFORMS.

>> Jon: SO, LET ME GET THISSTRAIGHT. YOU GUYS

HAVE GOT TANKS BUT YOU CAN'TKEEP A COUPLE OF TIDE STICKS

AROUND. BECAUSE HERE'S...

HERE IS THE PROBLEM WITHEVERYTHING THAT IS GOING ON IN

THIS CONVERSATION.

STANDING FACE OBSTACLES IN THISCOUNTRY WITH SURPRISING GRACE.

LOOK AT, LOOK AT HOW UPSET YOUALL GET ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS.

>> TONIGHT CHRISTMAS UNDERATTACK.

>> Jon: WHY ARE WE ALLOWINGANTI- CHRISTMAS MADNESS?

>> WHY DO I HAVE TO DRIVE AROUNDWITH MY KIDS TO LOOK FOR

NATIVITY SCENES AND BE LIKE,

OH YA, KIDS, LOOK THERE BABYJESUS BEHIND THE FESTIVUS POLE

MADE OUT OF BEER CANS.

IT'S NUTS!>> REMEMBER...

>> Jon: REMEMBER, YOU WEREFURIOUS THAT AMERICA'S

11 MONTH LONG CELEBRATION OFCHRISTMAS WASN'T ENOUGH. BUT

NOW IF YOU CAN, JUST IMAGINETHAT INSTEAD OF HAVING TO SUFFER

THE INDIGNITY OF A FESTIVUS POLEBLOCKING SOMETHING YOU COULD

HAVE JUST SET UP IN YOUR OWNYARD ANYWAY -- IMAGINE THAT

INSTEAD OF THAT ON A PRETTYCONSISTENT BASIS YOU CAN'T GET A

[BEEP] CAB EVEN THOUGHYOU'RE A NEURO SURGEON,

NOW WHEN YOU LOOK AT THEBOOK, YOU SAY ENCHANTED OBJECTS,

SOME MARY POPPINS TYPE SITUATIONHERE.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY "ENCHANTEDOBJECTS?"

>> WELL, I THINK ABOUT THECELLPHONE. AND THERE'S BEEN SO

MANY AMAZING THINGS YOU CAN DOWITH A CELLPHONE AND

WITH APPS. BUT THE PROBLEM IS,IT TOTALLY

MONOPOLIZES YOUR ATTENTION.LIKE, MOST OF US ARE STARING

INTO THIS MOST OF THE DAY.

>> Jon: YOU'RE SUGGESTINGTHAT THAT'S AN ISSUE?

>> WELL, I THINK THERE IS ANOPPORTUNITY TO TAKE, TO BECOME

UNGLUED FROM THIS SCREEN ANDSPREAD THE APPS INTO EVERY DAY

OBJECTS, INTO DESKS, INTOCLOTHING, INTO ROOMS,

INTO JEWELRY, JUST LIKE,EVERYWHERE. AND IT'S GOING TO

BE A MUCH NICER WAY TO INTERACTWITH TECHNOLOGY.

FOR COMPUTERS TO BECOME SENTIENTAND TURN ON US AND KILL US.

[LAUGHING]>> Jon: ARE YOU, ARE YOU

ANXIOUS, DO YOU NEED -- WHAT ISTHAT?

OBJECT FOR YOURHEALTH. NOW THIS IS A GLOW CAP.

AND IT ACTUALLY NOTIFIES YOUTHROUGH SUBTLE LIGHTS AND SOUND

TO TAKE AN IMPORTANT MEDICATIONAND IT WILL ALSO TEXT YOU SO

YOU DON'T FORGET. SO THIS ISANOTHER...

>> Jon: SO, THIS IS IN ESSENCEMY MOTHER IN A CAP FORM.

>> WELL --Jon: DOES IT EVER CRITICIZE

YOU IN ANY WAY?

>> I SHARE THE DATA OF MYMEDICATION TAKING WITH MY DAD.

AND HE DOES THE SAME WITH ME.

SO WE CAN BOTH SORT OF GIVE EACHOTHER [BEEP] EVERY WEEK.

>> Jon: IS THAT, NOW, BUT WHAT,WHAT HAPPENS NOW,

SO, THIS THING WILL BEEP WHENYOU'RE SUPPOSE TO TAKE IT?

>> WELL, IT TRIES TO BE ASSUBTLE AS POSSIBLE.

>> Jon: I SEE.

>> SO, IT CLEARS ITS THROATFIRST. AND THEN...

[LAUGHING]>> Jon: LET ME JUST SAY LIKE,

HEY, HEY. HEY, YOURHEART'S GONNA STOP.

>> RIGHT.

>> Jon: AND THE IDEA OF THIS IS,YOU KNOW, THAT IT WILL BRING,

NOW THAT'S SOMETHING THAT, IGUESS, WOULD NORMALLY COME UP ON

YOUR PHONE.

>> WELL, I DON'T THINK YOU'DREALLY USE A MEDICATION TAKING

APP. IF YOU'RE NOT GOINGTO DO THAT YOU'RE NOT GOING

TO LOG YOUR MEDS SCHEDULEIN YOUR PHONE.

>> Jon: SO, THIS IS SLIGHTLYEASIER BECAUSE...

>> WELL, IT'S SORT OF, IT'SEMBEDDED IN AN EVERY DAY

GESTURE. LIKE, YOU HAVE TO OPENTHE CAP TO GET THE MED OUT

ANYWAY, SO IF...>> Jon: RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT.

>> SO...>> Jon: SO TO JUST BE THERE...

>> RIGHT. SO, THAT'S THE PROMISEOF A ENCHANTED OBJECT IS TO...

>> Jon: THAT'S INTERESTING.>> ...TAKE THE EVERY DAY

OBJECTS, THE EVERY DAYGESTURES AND EMBED

FUNCTIONALITY IN THOSE THINGS.

>> Jon: IS THERE A CONCERNTHAT THEN WE THEN LOSE OUR

ABILITY TO BE FUNCTIONAL.

IF EVERYTHING -- IF AS SOON ASYOU WALK DOWN STAIRS THE MILK

GOES "HEY, WHAT ARE WE HAVINGCEREAL?" YOU KNOW, DO YOU,

DO YOU LOSE THEN -- HOW DO WEKEEP IT SO THAT IT ENHANCES

OUR LIVES WITHOUT US BEINGSUBSERVIENT TO THAT TECHNOLOGY.

>> WELL, I THINK WE ALL NEEDHELP IN TERMS OF, YOU KNOW,

THESE DAILY ACTIVITIES. YOUKNOW, I HAVE A FIT BIT ON AND SO

DOES THE REST OF MY FAMILY SO WECAN SORT OF SHARE HOW MUCH SLEEP

YOU'RE GETTING, HOW MUCH YOU'REWALKING.

SO, IT'S SORT OF A WAY TO KEEPEVERY BODY HEALTHY.

>> Jon: RIGHT.

>> THROUGH A LITTLE BIT OFSENSING.

>> Jon: NOW CAN'T YOU SAYTHOUGH, BECAUSE I HAVE A FAMILY.

CAN'T YOU SAY TO THEM, I ONLYSLEPT SIX HOURS LAST NIGHT OR

JUST COME DOWN AND GO MMMMM.>> THAT'S RIGHT.

>> Jon: DOES IT, WHERE DOES THEDATA GO?

>> WELL, THIS, THIS IS OPT IN.SO, IT GOES TO WHOEVER I

CHOOSE. WHICH IS ACTUALLY ALL,ALL...

>> Jon: TO THEIR WATCH ASWELL...

>> ALL OF FACEBOOK.

>> Jon: IT GOES TO FACEBOOK?

>> WELL, YOU CAN SHARE. IF, YOUKNOW,

IT'S YOUR CHOICE AS TO HOWBROADLY YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE

INFORMATION.

>> Jon: WHAT WILLTHEY DO? LIKE ONCE -- CAUSE

ONCE YOU PUT THIS OUT THERE ANDFACEBOOK FINDS OUT YOU TAKE

PILLS AND HAD SIX HOURS OF SLEEPTHEY WILL [BLEEP] HAUNT YOU.

YOU WILL SEE, THERE ARE THINGSTHAT ARE LISTED ONLY FOR YOU.

HOW DO YOU STOP ALL THIS DATAFROM BEING CO-OPTED?

>> WELL, I GOT A SCALE THATTWEETS A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.

[LAUGHING]>> AND, UH, THIS WAS SORT OF A

-- THIS WAS SORT OF A PROBLEM. IMEAN, I THOUGHT, YOU KNO,

I THOUGHT I WAS OPTIMISTIC ANDTHOUGHT MY WEIGHT COULD SORT OF

GO IN THE DOWNWARD DIRECTION.BUT, BUT MY SCALE WOULD TWEET

EVERY SATURDAY AUTOMATICALLY.

AND, THIS WAS ABOUT THE SAMETIME FOUR SQUARE WAS HAVING YOU

CHECK IN, YOU KNOW, TORESTAURANTS. AND IN MY CASE

IT WAS JUST THE SAME BAKERYEVERY SINGLE SATURDAY.

[LAUGHING]>> AND SO, LIKE I HAD A LOT OF

FRIENDS THAT REACHED OUT ANDTHEY WERE LIKE

MAYBE THERE IS A CORRELATIONBETWEEN YOUR WEIGHT GOING UP AND

THE BAKERY.

>> Jon: I LOVE IT. SO IT'S JUST,IN, IN ESSENCE IT'S

LIKE A FOCUS GROUPON YOUR LIFE TO BE ABLE TO

SAY TO YOU, WELL ITHINK I KNOW WHY YOU'RE GETTING

HEAVIER. BECAUSE YOU'RE...I'M WORRIED THAT YOU'RE

PULLING SOMETHING OUT OF YOURPOCKET NOW. WE'VE GOT TO GO.

>> NO WAIT, WAIT, I HAVESOMETHING ELSE. I HAVE... OH...

Jon: I'LL GO, WE'LL THROW.
