THE SHOW IN TEXT
Franklin Lopez sub.media has gone to Puerto Rico where he is from to help his family and the community clean up after Hurricane Maria
In Puerto Rico, a humanitarian catastrophe continues to unfold 12 days after Hurricane Maria struck the island. Over the weekend, the Pentagon said the percentage of Puerto Rico’s 3.5 million residents without access to clean drinking water rose to 55 percent. Only 5 percent of the island has electricity, while food and fuel remain scarce and about half of the island’s roads are impassable.
DONAL TRUMP: (Puerto Rico) is an island and it is surrounded by water, BIG water, ocean water.
Technically Puerto Rico is not surrounded by ocean water, but is touched by ocean water in the north (the Atlantic) and sea water (the Caribbean) in the south.

Ten months after a coronial inquiry recommended an end to the practice a woman in Western Australia has been jailed for 14 days in loo of paying $3900 in unpaid fines.
The fines date back to a dispute over an unregistered dog in 2012 and police arrested the woman after being called to the house regarding a domestic violence incident.
Meanwhile her children are being cared for by an aunt in their home where the power has been cut.
The case mirrors the case of Miss Dhu an Aboriginal woman who died after three days in custody. Police had been called to her house because her partner was suspected to be breaching a family violence order.
Instead they did a background check on Miss Dhu and found $3622 in unpaid fines.
In Spain, more than 800 people were injured Sunday after Spanish police stormed polling stations across the country’s Catalonia region and tried to forcibly prevent people from voting in a Catalan independence referendum, firing tear gas and physically attacking prospective voters.
The Spanish government says the referendum is illegal. Ahead of Sunday’s vote, Spanish police seized control of ballots and fliers, raided the Catalan regional government’s offices and even shut down pro-independence websites.
Late on Sunday night, the Catalan regional government said 90 percent of Catalan voters chose independence.
The leader of Catalonia insisted on Monday that Sunday’s independence referendum, though marred by clashes and rejected by the Spanish government, had earned his region the right to a separate state and that he would press ahead to make the vote binding. Spain rejects the referendum. Anarchists have been calling for a general strike.
