tv   Charlie Rose  Bloomberg  October 5, 2017 10:00pm-11:00pm EDT

10:00 pm
♪ announcer: from our studios in new york city, this is "charlie rose." charlie: welcome to the program. we begin this evening with the terrible tragedy in las vegas and with the cbs news coverage. >> good evening. we are on the 38th floor of the mandalay bay resort and casino, overlooking the scene of the sunday night massacre. this is the view stephen paddock had when he opened fire on more than 20,000 people at a country music concert. when it was over, 58 were dead and more than 500 injured. from here, you can see the
10:01 pm
festival grounds, still littered with debris and belongings of victims and those who fled the scene in panic. you can also look right into the snipers nest, where, throughout the day federal investigators , could be seen taking measurements in the window from which the gunmen opened fire. room 135 on the 32nd floor. the president flew here today to meet with victims and first responders. paddock's interviewed girlfriend today, as they searched for a motive for the attack. john blackstone begins our coverage. john: this afternoon, marilou danley was questioned at the los angeles fbi field office. she returned voluntarily last night after visiting her native philippines. she came in a wheelchair and was met by federal agents. authorities say she is key to piecing together what motivated paddock.
10:02 pm
in an interview with australian sisters said paddock himself sent her out of the country before he carried out the massacre. lou can help. john: they recovered a total of 47 firearms overall, 24 of them from his hotel room. some seen here in these pictures. joel snyder of the atf told nora o'donnell that he had been stockpiling weapons for years. >> how many firearms were purchased in the last year? >> he purchased 33 firearms, the majority of them rifles. >> that did not set off an alarm to the atf? >> we are only it notified if there is multiple guns sold in one sale. john: police body cam footage show what the officers faced and
10:03 pm
how they tried to save civilians. the gunfire continued for more than nine minutes. swat police swarmed attic's suite at the mandalay bay. they found paddock dead of an apparent gunshot one. paddock was a regular at the gun shop near his home in mesquite, nevada. he bought five guns here, including a bolt action rifle, three days before the shooting. >> i was having a moment and myself saying, i may have very well been the last person to shake hands with that man. john: marilou danley's attorney say she had no idea he was planning the rampage. the thousands of dollars he wired to her in the philippines was meant for her to buy a home there. she thought paddock was planning on breaking up with
10:04 pm
her. homeland security consultant has more now on the investigation. >> fbi agents could be seen today sifting through the hotel suite stephen paddock used to rain bullets down on the crowd. >> go that way, get out of here. >> law enforcement is still searching for a motive. fbi deputy director andrew mccabe spoke to cnbc. >> we don't have any immediately accessible thumbprints that would indicate the shooter's ideology, motivation, or what compelled him to get there. >> in the last 36 hours fbi labs began processing electronic devices like cell phones and computers recovered during searches of his properties. >> i think it is the quieter and harder work we have to do now. in terms of identifying people who may have known him, seen him, crossed paths with him in the days and weeks leading up to
10:05 pm
the event. that is where we are focused right now. >> investigators are also focused on paddock's mental health and whether something happened in october of 2016 that caused him to stockpile most of the 47 guns and rifles and his arsenal. also of interest, whether he was considering targeting another large concert that took place in las vegas a week before the country music festival. >> they are shooting right at us everybody stay down. , >> mandy gomez is a former fbi agent. >> this person was looking for the best target opportunity, and it did not matter what crowd he was going to fire into. he was looking for the largest impact for this attack every >> investigators say patrick spend a lot of time gambling in the days before the attack, and more than a dozen currency transaction reports were filed to back that up. anthony? anthony: thank you. we are back now a street level, as you can see.
10:06 pm
across from the festival grounds where the shooting occurred. police are just about to open the street, three days after the shooting. nearly 50 people are still in critical condition tonight. the president met today with some of the injured and the doctors and nurses who saved their lives. here is white house correspondent major garrett. >> president trump landed in the shadow of the mandalay bay hotel. center of ao the grieving city, he came to console. pres. trump: it makes you proud to be an american when you see the job they have done. >> at university medical center, the hospital that received 100 victims, the president thanked doctors and nurses. the president also toward the las vegas police command center and hailed the bravery of officers and civilians that faced the terror head on. pres. trump: in the depths of horror we will always find hope in the men and women who risk of their lives for ours. >> on behalf of the nation, the president offered a nation a promise the nation a promise.
10:07 pm
pres. trump: we know that your sorrow feels endless. we stand together to help you carry your pain. you are not alone. we will never leave your side. major garrett: and he reflected how america endures. pres. trump: in the darkest moments what shines most brightly is the goodness that thrives in the hearts of our people. major garrett: of the shooter the , president said his wires were screwed up. pres. trump: he is a sick, demented man. major garrett: the president left as he arrived, with the crime scene never far away. charlie: we continue with major garrett of nbc news then katty kay of the bbc. there were cameras inside and outside the room to warn him. this is clearly as the fbi said an incredibly well thought out plan. but it is the question of motive
10:08 pm
that makes it different from other mass shootings that we have covered. without that sense of motive it is hard to piece together who this guy was and why he did it. charlie: we conclude this evening with harrison ford, his new film is called "blade runner 2049." lie.n't you are a cop. >> i am not here to take you in. all we need to know is that we are serving our customers, that we are telling stories that are important. ion forcite peoples' pass commonality. what i am looking for is an that the investment audience can see and feel.
10:09 pm
feel their way through. charlie: major garrett, katty kay, and harrison ford when we continue. ♪ charlie: joining me from las vegas is merit -- major garrett, cbs news chief correspondent. and from bbc america, katty kay. major tell us about what we , learned new today about this horrific tragedy. major garrett: i can tell you here in las vegas this is a , community still in a state of shock and trauma. the president's remarks were well crafted, all of the consoling words you would expect from a president at a moment of national tragedy. but i can tell you, having talked to both police officers and residents of las vegas as i have been here the better part of the day this community cannot even , absorb those moments and messages and consolation. so deep is the sense of shock and trauma after sunday night, leading into monday morning's
10:10 pm
events. i met a couple walking by our work space they were carrying a picture of a friend of theirs, a mother of three boys, shot and killed. they were so traumatized they couldn't describe their feeling about it. they just wanted to come by and meet media members and said we are grieving, we just want you to know. that sense is all around us here .i lived in las vegas from 1986 -- is all around here. i lived in las vegas from 1986 to i know a little bit 1998. about the community. i have friends here. this is a town built on hospitality and entertainment. there's a sense in america that this isn't really a real place, that gamblers and high rollers come in and out of here, but nobody actually lives here. well, 650,000 people live in las vegas. the greaterin county. this is a real community. and it has come together and locked arms because it is traumatized as never before. the president's visit was
10:11 pm
deeply appreciated. but the city will go through many, many stages of grief and reconciliation before the tragedy has run anywhere near its full course. charlie: have we learned anything from the killer, the gunman, the girlfriend, or companion that has come back from the philippines? have we learned what she is telling people who have talked to her? major: no. those interviews have just begun at the fbi headquarters in los angeles. there is a sense that she was unaware and not necessarily a participant. that is the general sense. but the fbi is going to probe all of those questions about her knowledge, foreknowledge, any sense she might have had about the inkling this shooter had to carry out this crime or any knowledge she might have that could shed light on a motive. motive still remains the greatest mystery here. and also the conduct of the casino itself.
10:12 pm
this man was known as a frequent gambler. some described him as a high roller. he brought in lots of luggage, serially, bit by bit. is that normal procedure? should those things have been scrutinized more carefully? were they not, because he was a well-known frequenter of the mandalay bay? was it because he was a high roller and got special treatment? all these questions have yet to be asked or fully answered. they are part of the comprehensive investigation. not just by the fbi, but the las vegas police and those trying to get closer to the bottom of some of these unresolved questions. charlie: do we know anymore about this man? we know that his preparation was deep and well considered. as the major mentioned, he brought the guns in in a series of suitcases to bring them in. we know he planned it carefully. we know he probably expected to die.
10:13 pm
we have heard that some people suspect he sent his girlfriend back to the philippines because he did not want her to be here. what else have we learned? katty: this is one of the strangest things about this awful incident. now we are three days after it and we don't have a sense of a motive. you have covered too many of these terrible events and usually by now we have a clearer picture of somebody who is troubled for one reason or another or had a motive for one reason or another. never beve may something you are i would understand, but you can piece together the elements. there were things about paddock. reportedly had a father that was abusive, head father had been arrested for bank robbery at some point. that he had been a big gambler, sent all of his money to the philippines, that he sent his companion away. would any of those if somebody said this to you about somebody you met in passing, would you said, this would lead
10:14 pm
to me thinking this person is going to commit a mass shooting? we have not heard any one thing yet that makes us think, that is the red flag people should have or could have noticed. there just is not yet. charlie: everything about this is terrible. what is he thinking when he is just shooting down people that he does not know? he is taking innocent lives of people with no grievance against them at all. seen when somebody thought they had been unfairly discriminated against and take it out on their boss. here, these were people this man apparently did not know. they were at a concert that had nothing to do with him. and they are some distance from him. he is not seeing them eye to eye. you cannot have the angle when you're sniping at someone from that distance. charlie: why so many? john: why so many, and why so many preparations? cameras out there to warn him if somebody was on their way to the
10:15 pm
room. as the fbi said, it is a well-thought-out plan. it is this motive that makes it different from other mass shootings that major has covered, i have covered, you have covered. without that sense of motive, it is hard to piece together who this guy was and why he did it. charlie: major, you're in las vegas. once again we hear remarkable stories of first responders, we have remarkable stories of people prepared to risk their lives to save their friend, their relative, their wife or husband. heroic stories of people who put themselves in the line of fire trying to protect someone, some loved one. major garrett: as unimaginable as these numbers are, 58 murdered, the gunman himself the 59th fatality, more than 500 injured, those numbers are incomprehensible. as bad as they are it is so clear when you talk to the police, the people who were around, that situation could
10:16 pm
have been worse, if that is even imaginable. i cannot imagine more than 58 dead and 500 injured, but that was a genuine possibility. i talked to a las vegas starting getting ready to go to bed sunday night, when he got a call this was going on. he called his six compatriots in the crimestoppers division, said come down to the police station immediately. they all did. weapons,their bullet-proof vest got to , the scene as rapidly as they could. all of them knowing this was a live fire sniper situation and they rushed him home to the scene as rapidly and protected as they could. by the time they got here, the shooting had stopped so they began to secure the area and began transport of those who had been wounded. civilians did the same thing. everyone rushed to the scene, rushed to the face of this horror in the community to try
10:17 pm
to make it stop, first, and then deal with those many victims. it is that that stands in such stark and arresting contrast to whatever the motive was. we talked to profilers in the fbi and local police departments. there is a false comfort that comes with this idea well, here , is the motive for mass murder, let's be honest. there is no legitimate motive for mass murder. whatever the underlying cause is, there is no motive, nothing that explains it. you can say those things, you can piece together they became a perverted rationale, but they know that what happened here was worse than anything we have ever seen in our country and lots of people, uniformed, nonuniformed, experienced, not experienced civilian alike, ,rushed to the scene and made it slightly better. katty: the only reason we think about this issue of motive and try to get into the idea of motive is, could that be part of
10:18 pm
what helps prevention of future attacks? you are right. somebody that does it, the simple answer is, they are crazy. you and i wouldn't do it, other people we know wouldn't do it. you have to be crazy to shoot this many people that you do not know. but are there things we , could look for in society to say, this is a red flag, and we should be concerned? you can see the other red flag and other mass shootings. you can't really see it in this event. it makes the idea of preventing this, let alone security -- we do not want to live in a world where you monitor every suitcase it goes into a hotel. it is not a freedom we want to give up. you think, how do we prevented in the future? this issue of red flags, that is where it comes in. charlie: not only what the motive was, but how long ago did it begin to develop in his own mind? let's turn to the politics major. the president was there yesterday in puerto rico with
10:19 pm
criticism there. has he responded to the criticism? major garrett: not really. the president's actions seeming to be a little cavalier while he was tossing paper towels to people in dire need of not just paper towels food, , water, medicine, electricity, workable roads, the basic fundamentals of life in puerto rico are not anywhere near being returned. the president grading himself very favorably, as he tends to do. specifically after hurricane harvey and irma. fema, he measured highly for the puerto rico response. those on the ground are very skeptical and in some places critical of that. what other choice do they have than to accept the president brought and hope there is more en route? puerto rico will be a long-running test, not just for the president in terms of rebuilding the commonwealth, but also the mechanism to pay for the rebuilding of the commonwealth.
10:20 pm
the president made a rather significant blunder yesterday separate from his demeanor suggesting in an interview that the united states might wipe out the tens of billions of dollars of debt racked up by puerto rico. that required mick mulvaney to rush up this morning, saying, no, there will be no bailout for puerto rico. that influenced financial markets, made people curious about what the president meant and if puerto rico was going to get confusion, causing when the last thing they need is confusion. they need compassion and a workable federal system to rebuild. on that score, the president legitimately took criticism and it probably isn't over. charlie: there is also the issue of gun control. we have seen tragedy lead to calls for more gun control. clearly, that will happen here, because this is the most -- worst mass killing ever. will we have the same response?
10:21 pm
is there some reason to believe this will be different? katty: very little. i covered new town after the 20 children six-year-olds were , killed in that school. there was a huge outpouring of grief and dismay in the country, because it was children. that didn't lead to changes in gun control. here is the disconnect. as polls show the majority of americans and nra members supported extended background checks. but the president said it again, we're not going to talk about it now raise the issue of gun , control. this is something very hard for people watching this event around the world to fathom. even if you raise the issue of gun control after a shooting ase this, you are seen politicizing the situation rather than how can we seen as deal with this and , prevent it from happening again? the president's response has been textbook presidential response.
10:22 pm
he praised the first responders, called for unity. today he said not going to talk about that now. when else is the time? one thing i've learned in america, it is not the time after the mass shooting or the time between mass shootings. it is difficult to address. if gun-control didn't happen after newtown, it's not going to happen after vegas. charlie: thank you for coming here. after the break, stay with us. ♪

10:34 pm
job.t, and that is my i have some engaging work, interesting people to work with. the juices flowing. charlie: do you like acting? harrison: yeah. charlie: the craft of it? harrison: it's not really -- charlie: not a craft? harrison: yeah, it's a craft. it is a skill and practiced in collaboration. a large part of the job is problem solving, so you never know what you're going to get when you go to work and you go to work it out. there is pressure of time and circumstance. it is exciting. charlie: what kind of problems do you solve as an actor? harrison: how to get the camera motivated from one side of the room to another, how to match dolly gripy of the
10:35 pm
to push a piece of equipment. i am working with the dolly grip as much as the director. of practical problems, but also the problems of storytelling how much. , it is like being there, cooking a meal. is there too much of that, too much of that? should we adjust to people? what i love about going to the movies is you go in a dark room with a bunch of strangers and the lights go down. you see something -- you all see the same thing. charlie: see and hear. harrison: and feel, and somehow it enforces your common humanity. a lot of what "blade runner" is about is, what does it mean to be human? what does it mean to be more human than human? what does it mean to be human if you do not know where you came from? how can you figure out where you are going? charlie: how
10:36 pm
do you see rick? harrison: rick deckard is -- charlie: a replicant? harrison: don't go there. [applause] ridleyn: you will have banging down the door. charlie: he does not want that? harrison: no. i think the genius of the question of whether deckard is a replicant or human is, one of the delicious aftertastes of the first film and it may be present in the rest of the -- charlie: you insist that he's not a replicant or are you insisting you will not disclose, because it is up to everybody to make their own decision? harrison: i made the choice as
10:37 pm
an actor, as a participant in the telling of the story, to hold the point of view because i , thought it was important that , the audience might require somebody onscreen that they could depend on to be human. so that they would have an emotional representative in the story. and ridley said, yeah, but what if they are wrong? isn't that interesting? i said, yeah, that is interesting. charlie: you had to approach it in terms of your own mind and the fact that he was human so , the audience would have something they could hold onto that he was human? harrison: but the truth is, it did not matter whether i thought i was human and wasn't or whether i thought i was human and was. charlie: because? harrison: just because. just because i was chattel.
10:38 pm
if i was a replicant, that means i didn't have ownership of my memories or my fate or my utility. do you have time for people say, why are we bringing back indiana jones and rick when there han solo are so many new stories to tell a new characters to create? it is simply because it is business and these are established characters and established hits and they were well written once and can be well written again? harrison: yes and no. charlie: what is the no? harrison: the no is like saying the koran bible, outlived their usefulness? no. it is a story, another great story.
10:39 pm
we require, tribally, stories with a ring of truth, which may have gone out of fashion in life -- charlie: in 2017. harrison: like with science, we deny it. how are we going to get back from that? we have to. charlie: you have to believe in science, because you're a pilot. harrison: i have to believe in gps. charlie: the principle of physics that gets planes to fly. harrison: exactly. and it is not self apparent, but think of where we would be without lift on the wings of airplanes. we would be back -- it has changed the world globalized is
10:40 pm
, maybe a word that has gone out of fashion. charlie: or somebody is trying -- harrison: trying, to wrest it from the dictionary. charlie: or make it into the source of all our problems. harrison: that is a denial of economics. charlie: we live in a global world and everybody -- harrison: where do you have to go, you know? charlie: you buy a product, maybe it came from south korea or -- harrison: or we can do something they are not doing right now, if we get to work to try to solve problems of advancing the utility of alternative energy, if we can six our bridges, cleanup our parks put money into our schools , and communities. charlie: all of the things that help us build our future, education -- harrison: yes, sir. charlie: innovative solutions
10:41 pm
to problems like, where do we get power from, that kind of thing? harrison: yeah. charlie: it is interesting that flying has been such a passion of yours. harrison: i flew in college about three times. it was $11 an hour. -- an hour for an airplane in an instructor. i ran out of money and couldn't afford it. i was curious. i got to be 52 years old and i had not -- i felt i was still learning my base craft and practicing it and enjoying it, but i wanted to learn something else. and i didn't know whether -- i wasn't totally sure that i would or could. charlie: it was a challenge you wanted to find out whether you could do it. harrison: whether i could do it well enough to keep it as a passion.
10:42 pm
charlie: have you ever -- when you go down for whatever reason, and you have gone down? harrison: i went down once. charlie: once is enough, sometimes. harrison: once can be enough. i didn't crash, the airplane did. charlie: pilot error? harrison: no, sir. the engine quit at 600 feet in the air. charlie: i bet that scared the bejeezus out of you. harrison: oddly enough, it didn't. that is the job. that is part of the job. aviation mentors were whispering in my ear, and i knew .here was not time there was a guy named -- i wanted to give credit where credit is due bob hoover was a , great world war ii test pilot and ace.
10:43 pm
he flew in speed trials breaking the sound barrier. charlie: right, along with chuck yeager. harrison: he said, fly the airplane as far into the crash as possible. charlie: fly it as far into the crash? harrison: yeah, don't stop. you're still be pilot. happily, i found a place where doctors were congregating, the golf course. charlie: they knew you were coming down? harrison: they looked up and there was an airplane approaching in an unusual way. charlie: without an engine network. harrison: yeah, and they pulled me out. thank god there were some , doctors right there. charlie: is there anything as exhilarating about, as churchill said, being shot at -- but you
10:44 pm
kept it from disaster? no, it was harrison: a horrible experience for everybody except me. i was -- charlie: calm? harrison: no. i was in a medically induced coma for a period of time. charlie: in order to revive you? harrison: to give me the chance to -- charlie: survive. harrison: ok, survive. think what that meant to my wife and children. charlie: more serious than i imagined it was. i kind of thought you landed the plane and got out and everything was cool. harrison: you could say that. charlie: what is the passion about for you? freedom? harrison: freedom and responsibility, a subtle blend of both. you earn freedom through responsibility of preparing yourself to do that.
10:45 pm
and it's one of those -- it is like -- instead of -- a movie you have one shot at it, you're there on the day and hopefully we don't go back and do this again, because of the schedule and money is not arranged that way. but it is sort of like eating in a play, you have every flight, every performance of the same play, you have the opportunity to tweak it a little bit, make it a little bit better, make it go a little smoother, refine the operation of the event, and that is kind of what flying is. plus a lot of other things. ♪ is this a phone?

reporter i've been accused by , usually women in my life of being unreflective. you're not reflective, they say. harrison: and they -- and they've got a point, and they should know, but it is because i have such an investment in the present. that's my -- that's all i've got to say in my defense. charlie: you live in the moment? harrison: i'm trying to. trying to live in the moment so i can be prepared for the future. the past -- charlie: done. harrison: what can i do? i'm sorry. very simply, i'm sorry for my failures of the past, but i'm trying to be present. charlie: you don't look back and see many failures anyway, if you were so inclined, do you? harrison: there is a long trail of tears, you know. charlie: mainly personal stuff

you are a cop. >> i am not here to take you in. >> oh, yeah? >> i just have some questions. charlie: do you like deckard? harrison: that is something that is between deckard and deckard. it is not about me. i mean, it is about me. i have to pull something out for myself, storytelling-wise. but what serves the telling of the story? i have never in my life uttered the phrase, "my character wouldn't do that." the character is there to help the story. that alliance between story and character that gives alliance to both of us. charlie: you would not tell a director that? harrison: no, i would tell him it is a crummy line, it might be better another way.
