tv Erin Burnett Out Front CNN June 1, 2012 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT
voters sent them home? voted them out of office. she's got a backup plan. >> who knew she all those hidden talents. who knew, politicians have hidden talents other than talking. >> do you want to try to top her? >> what? >> top her. floor's yours. >> no. if i. a drink in my hand, maybe, but i don't. >> have great weekend. see you back here monday night. 23459s all for us. erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. "outfront" next the dow plunges nearly 300 points. a horrible jobs report today. why some of the nation's leading ceos tell us they're hiring now. a developing story. in the past hour, mitt romney releasing his personal financial statements for the past year. what changed, and what didn't in the romney's back account. and george zimmerman has less than 48 hours to report to jail. this is bad news for his trial. it's all "outfront" tonight.
i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, stocks tanked. the dow plunged 2774 points today killing all the gains of this year. it's the biggest drop since november. it was really bad day. the reason was a terrible jobs report. usually using adjectives like this are sometimes much for the markets but it's the way it was today. american employers add add meager 69,000 job, which is about half the number needed just to keep up with current population growth. it was the weakest month of hiring for the year and the unemployment rate went up to 8.2%. it was a grim day for the president. >> today we're still fighting our way back from the worst economic crisis since the great depression. the economy's growing again, but it's not growing as fast as we want it to grow. >> now, according to bianco research, no president has been re-elected in this country with an unemployment rate this high
since the great depression. that was when fdr won and at that time unemployment was 13.7%. what's happening? we went to find out. we asked our strike team. 24 of america's business leaders including entrepreneurs and c ceoess. cisco and others. 11 out of 18 said the job market is stalling. and they are less optimistic than they were just one month ago. ellen calman said i'm an optimist hope tong see stronger growth. this is clearly going to be a slower recovery. i'm a little more negative on near-term growth. this week to that point of the 20 economic indicators that came out, only one surprised to the upside. a stunning statistic from research. the vast majority of our strike team is hiring themselves, when i read through the replies it didn't seem to me the kind of hiring that drive as strong economy.
bill miller said, only hiring replacements, and even mark andreeson, board member of facebook said while his companies are hiring across the board, only in certainly area, like engineering and analytics. so what can we do? this is the biggest fear as far as i'm concerned, because at this point there is no easy way out. not only is another stimulus package a complete non-starter in congress it might not even work. strike team point of view on this, overwhelming. stimulus is not the answer according to them. 14 say, no. one major dissent of no from stavd stern of the nba. remining an ardent supporter of stimulus telling me, yes, stimulus, referring to the liberal economists wish for $300 billion a year in spending. this is much bigger than politics. this ongoing crisis is hurting our 401(k)s, defining our joshgs our career prospects and earnings potential, retirement or lack there of and nation's debt crisis. jim bianco and dan burks join me
now. great to vup with us and appreciate it. start with you, dan. we've been hoping things would start to improve, increase a little bit to the up side. we're not seeing it yet. blip or part of something more sinister? >> having an unemployment crisis going on three, four years now. remember in '09 losing several hundred thousand job as month. a jobless recovery. ty companies are doing better with doing more with less. amazingly efficient and in general waiting for that demand to materialize. it's a chicken and egg thing. car sales up 17% year over year. retail s 6% year over year. moving in the right direction, but stn seem to be at the speed hat says i've got to go hire somebody today. >> jim bianco, the other problem, it's not a speed which has gotten us to where we were before the problem began. so many industries are not back to where we were in 2007? >> correct. dan reports car sales up 17%
retail up 6%. overall levels below we saw in 2007 and 2008. now, the good news is the economy's not in recession. it's growing slowly, but the news is that it is growing slowly. this is the 40th month in a row we've had above 8% unemployment and we have to go back to the great depression to find we've had unemployment above 8% that long and that's casting a pal over everything. it's high a long time and feels different from the '80s in some respects a little worse than then. >> what do we do jt most awful part where we are. can say, should have done a differ stimulus, bigger stimulus. reality, not another one before the election. >> and not a lot of help from the fed. they've run out of what they can do. strange thing,urp oh of labor statistics comes out, says, how many job opens, how many quit, moved around. called the jolt survey. end of march, 3.7 million jobs opened in the country.
highest level that's been at since late '08. conference board has numbers on online want ads, 4 point something million. 4.3. higher than years. dichotomy. we have job open bes but we're not filling them. because people don't like the skills? people in the wrong geographic place? north dakota has tens of thousands of jobs but nobody lives there. >> maybe jim, the problem is a lot of people from detroit can sell their homes and move to north dakota and it comes back to housing. what can we do at this point, jim? i'm curious. i know you're not, very worried about the fiscal cliff we're coming ought, what is a bigger cliff? fiscal cliff or the economic cliff? >> well, i think it's the economic cliff. you're right. labor mobility is very tough. it's hard for people to move around because of this stagnation in home prices. can't sell your home and move where the jobs are. that's holding everybody back. to that end i think what we have to do is try and make it cheaper
for employers to hire people. lower the cost. tax cuts, incentives, something to make it easier or cheaper to high people across the board that would probably be the only thing we can do in the short term. in the long term, we have to wait for the storm clouds in europe to subside and wait and see whether some of the storm clouds in the housing market, some of the other things holding us back subside here. >> how much worst would it get in europe faums awars, greece goes -- spain goes. >> we're not exporting a lot of stf to ow. >> no. >> if you were counting on italy for growth in your end market, you've been disappoint add decade now. the problem is in, come backs to our financial syem. their banks affect our banks and we see what we saw in '08 and '09. almost like companies need to be bribed to hire somebody. freefbl frequently say people don't have the skills. they should be doing the
training. maybe the government account do a little more with training companies. the used to do a lot of. >> another issue we'll talk about in a moment. jeb bush talking, so many job training programs. are they working? final word, jim bianco, what does it to do the election? >> hurts obama helps romney. puts the election into the toss-up category. we'll have to wait and see. not settled at all. no clear front-runner. >> thank you s to you both. and mitt romney releasing his financial statement. did clinton 1yu679 throw his guy, president obama under the bus? secret strategy. and days after a zombie didn't lish attack a new case, the attacker ate the brain of a victim. the story continues to be bizarre and is in different parts of the country. two major developments in the george zimmerman/trayvon martin case this afternoon.

romney, mitt romney, got it. and with that, john, last summer all the stocks mitt romney owns. today the new ones came out. compared them, and what did you find in here? >> this is an update since last august, as you said. glancing at it quickly, he's a wealthy man over 50 different assets holdings valued at over $1 million at least. this is an extraordinary successful guy. there's speaking fees trickling in. more money as a former director than previously but largely status flow. keeping his to a minimum, he's running for office, for pete's sake. >> looking at original ones. did own individual stock, lemon ford, some aregone. >> many slow. >>sold. >> much more money markets, very conservative. >> right. a sense of range we're talking be bonds, money market funds. very, very diversified. give a sense of the range. we knowfor example he got
between $700,000 and $6.2 million from bain. follow the money a document that establishes range not specific valuation. >> for those out there, he no longer works at bain. a stream coming from old bain funds. that money, of course, still all taxed at the 15%. >> absolutely. >> long-term capital gains rate. okay. we're going to keep looking through these. this is why we, people say why do you kill trees? i don't want to kill trees every time it comes out. i save it. right there on my desk. the democratic party what some call a schism appears to be getting wider. former president bill clinton the latest to take on the issue with the tax of bain capital calling mitt romney's record, quote/unquote, sterling and today mitt romney weighed in. >> 80% of the businesses bain capital invested in grew during the period of bain capitol ownership. that's pretty good record. 5% went bankrupt. i understand that the president and his team will focus all their energy on the 5%.
i like to focus my energy on the 80 ps% and i think bain capital has a good, solid record. i was happy to see president clinton made a similar statement today. >> all right, john avlon here. hogan, former director for rick santorum also here. so, john, let me ask you this question. you have cory booker first i'm not indicting private equity. duvall patrick a good company. now bill clinton. cynics say because they get donations. but new york a lot of businesses created by private equity. it may not just be cynical. >> and it may expose a deeper schism with the democratic party bill clinton dealt with when he was running for president. the democratic leadership council attacked by folks on the far left too closely business. always a tension in the democratic party. these liberal base and folks with a much more expensive interkeshgted attitude about
business. one of the things we may be seeing a blowback on the bain attacks showing the divisions beneath the surface of the democratic party surfacing yet again. >> hogan interesting. think about bill clinton weighing in on this. it's clear from everything bill clinton said he'd voting for barack obama and wants barack obama to win but he's a guy who did what he did with business onboard. >> that's right. and bill clinton's not -- a very smart man. knew exactly what he was saying and doing in that interview. who knows. there might be some residue left over from that campaign he and hillary faced off with barack on many years ago. look, i remember in nashville and new hampshire in the primary, mike allen from politico came up to rick santorum and said can you believe this about firing people? to rick santorum's credit, that's capitalism. some jobs you grow and make businesses grow, some people lose their jobs. that's the way the system works. and what's interesting about this is, every other republican jumped on and attacked mitt
romney for bain. but it was a losing strategy. newt gingrich has gone all over the country explaining, a losing strategy for the, a lot of the conservative folks to be talking about bain capital and. >> now the president did it two weeks. they have no message to attack him on as it relates to bain capital. people like booker and clinton are saying, guys, he's successful. get over it. move on to another topic. >> key point with hogan, obviously, moved to the general. that attack was risky for a conservative primary electorate. fascinating here, tried to drive a wedge between clinton and cent try centrist and barack obama. credence to that argument. there is a difference. not the appear bill clinton ran. a party that he would argue barack obama's playing to the base and running against business. actually this schism in the
democratic party plays into a narrative romney wants to have a debate about. >> right. interesting, l.z. granderson is with us. with bill clinton recently talking about the bush tax cuts basically saying once we get growing again we need those to go up for everyone, not just the wealthy. for everyone, which doesn't seem to be the message at all of barack obama. >> well, no. and he has the luxury of not having to follow through with the party's, party talking line. right? he's not running for office necessarily. he's actually running to make the country better. 9 things bill xln saying may not necessarily the things the president wants to hear but are things the country may need. two different things. a motive for campaigning. a motive for turning the country around. they may not necessarily be on the same line. >> an ad of the obama campaign, that they're running. i'm curious if you think he's going to do this? does it get twrakz he needs to, he doesn't care what we're sitting here saying or what some
eyes leaning right are thinking. the ad he's been running on bain. >> we view mitt romney as job destroyer. >> to get up on national tv and brag about making jobs, when he has destroyed thousands of people's careers, lifetimes, just destroying people. >> he's running for president, and if he's going to run the country the way he ran our business i wouldn't want him there. >> brian? >> not a lot of evidence it's working. their hope clearly it's going to resonate with blue collar workers in swing states like ohio and pennsylvania. the problem, able to reconnect with centrists and intd dents, bill clinton. how he was the first democrat re-elected sis fdr. if romney can drive a wedge, return to the democratic party brr it recognized businesses created job, it can have a real thought and may win the election. >> still "outfront," the man who left the romney campaign
suddenly. but he says that being openly gay and being incredibly criticized for being openly gay from the far right of the republican party didn't influence him. does it add up? we'll ask him. and we go "outfront" to israel. up next what might be the world's second most valuable secret formula. i'm an expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who matters most to you says the most about you. massmutual is owned by our policyholders so they matter most to us. massmutual. we'll help you get there.
our third story "outfront," before i went to israel to interview prime minister netanyahu, my eye caught this on my desk. it's called more raus eed moroc. the company started by cha la cn and her husband. dp it come from years of research? or from something elses else? >> it's an sdhaent somebody damaged my hair. i happened to land in a beautiful salon in tel aviv, and these thens did miracle with my
hair. it wasn't just the western. it was the product. >> reporter: the product carmen stumbled on is a natural oil that comes from a tree produced in morocco for centuries. >> we decided to call it moroccan oil and never thought it would be successful. right? >> reporter: sold exclusively in more than 35 countries, used by a-4ri69 celebrities like madonna, katy perry and scarlett johansson. >> you still get a feeling in your stomach? >> still does. >> reporter: featured in "vogue" and the product of choice for fashion shows including these. >> evolved so fast that i don't think we had time to think, would it be that big? the part of a successful business came as a bonus. >> reporter: a bonus? >> yes it is. >> reporter: the business is based where 80% is in a non-distribute warehouse about
two hours from jerusalem. the director and one of four people who know the secret formula to this blockbuster hair product. >> what makes it so secret? >> the blend and mix of all the top-notch ingredients we have inside makes it so good. >> reporter: it really makes it so good or just on the market doing well? >> reporter: they wouldn't tell me the top secret formula but i did see them make it. 25 different ingredients go into moroccan products and mixed in special two-ton vats named after the celebrities that use them. like angeline nah j angelina jo. >> this is the -- >> paula abdul? >> all the stylists are here. >> reporter: this is a signature product and the fact they're here in israel has 180 employees working 24/7 filling, labeling and packaging up 0 to 1750,000
bottle as day. big money. especially since that one product retails for $42 a bottle and it's not stopping there. carmen tal is betting on body products. >> i'm not an expert in the world of beauty but i can imagine it's incredibly cut throat and the world of body is a whole new world. really? >> absolutely. absolutely. >> what made you feel you're ready for that jump? >> so many people, you have to. so many people begging you. you know? so we said, you know, maybe we're ready. >> pretty interesting idea. and ahead, talking about the decision to revoke george zimmerman's bail. is it a really bad sign for the trial? days after a zombie-like attack a new case. we'll tell you exactly the horrific thing that happened. we're america's natural gas

silver lining, oil prices. they are down 18% over the past 230 four weeks. gasoline futures fell bringing relief at the pumps over the next few week. a bombshell case again george zimmerman the man accused of shooting and killing trayvon martin. zimmerman claims martin attacked him and he was acting in self-defense. he is facing second-degree murder charges. today, huge news. the judge revoked his bond ordering him to surrender in the next 48 hours. this means that zimmerman will have to spend months before bars before the trial against him even starts. the judge's decision today coming after it was revealed by prosecutors that zimmerman had not surrendered a second passport and had lied about how much money he had when his bond was originally set back in april. you may remember this. the paypal account he started to raise money had about $200,000 in it. when he went for that original -- and he spoke, said he no money.
zimmerman's lawyer explained it was a misunderstanding. >> -- believed they had free access to that money and i think it was evident by the way they used it and didn't use it. i think it was compelling evidence, quite honestly, they didn't use it to get him out that very day. on the other hand i think judge lester returns a very tight courtroom as well he should and was frus frustrate bawd he doesn't think he was being as straightforward and honest as he thought they should. >> "outfront" tonight, natalie jackson, one of the lawyers representing the family of trayvon martin and cnn contributor paul cowen. does this surprise you, paul? we heard about the account, already raised as something that would cause him to revoke bail, that he lied about the money. a second passport, both damning. >> a blow to the defense. the reason it's a devastating
bloeshgs the judge, judge lester, who says he deceived the court. he and his wife. the words of the judge. he deceived the court. he lied to the court. this is the very judge who's going to decide at the stand your ground hearing whether to give immunity on the grounds of self-defense. he's already called is zimmerman a liar on the issue of bail. this is really, really hurt his case. not to mention the fact he gets thrown back into jail. >> what's your reaction? you must be incredibly gratified? >> well, i think that -- it makes us cautiously optimistic that we're gorge to see justice and fair and equal justice for everyone. this judge showed everyone today that he's going to follow the law, and that he's 234not going april lew shenanigans in his courtroom. >> paul, does this, though, i mean, a lot of the information we've gotten, both the defense and prosecution are trying to keep it out of the media. i want to ask natalie about has in a minute. what we've seen so far, tended to go in george zimmerman's
farcher. ang grip at the police department for what he perceived racist behavior on a totally unrelated issue. how damage pg is this now relative to all the information we have so far which seemed to go in his favor? >> erin, this is the first devastating blow we've seen delivered to the zimmerman against in quite away. most back wd up the zimmerman claim. in fairness, o'mere irra says t just went overboard. that's the explanation they offer. but whether it's true or not doesn't matter, because he's the judge, and he's deciding the immunity issue. the stand your ground hearing. the big opportunity to get the case dismissed before a jury trial. >> natalie, were you aware of the second passport before today? >> no. we weren't.
i want to talk about stand your ground. we maned tains all along stand your ground does not apply to this case. i do not believe there will be a stand your ground hearing in this case. george zimmerman's credibility is the main issue in this case. the main issue in the stand your ground hearing and the main issue in a trial, and with this case, we -- we heard all along people talk about stand your ground. we maintained that the stand your ground law as applied to this case is just a red herring and we don't believe there will be a hearing in this case on that. >> mark o'mirra, when i spoke to him has indicated going with self-defense. not pushing for stand your ground. thaucht he would win on self-defense? >> he can't win or stand your ground. the issue doesn't apply. >> stand your ground gets confusing. in a lot of florida cases they almost routinely grant, i call it an immunity hearing, becaus s s it's a hearing, the defendant says he acted in self-defense,
the court make as determination from what we call a preponderance of the evidence. if he has, the case gets dismissed. the question is, will the judge order such a hearing in this case? i don't think it's clear at this point but it has been done in a lot of similar cases. >> natalie, what's the reason, the thing you and the defense agree on, this issue of not wanting to have more of the information, the discovery, come into the public eye? my understanding, about half is out there. seen most of it, but you want the rest to be sealed. why is that? >> i will say, actually, our team is asking for full transparencyy. the prosecution agreeing with the defense to seem the discovery. we understand why. it's because what the -- everything that is is left is what the prosecution is going to use as their smoking gun against zimmerman. they don't want the media to analyze the way we've seen this piecemeal anization of evidence that's come in, and the defense attorney agrees with that because it's damning to his
case. that's why he wants it sealed. we're asking for transparency because of the things link sewed far sort of demonize trayvon in this case and he's the victim. if you're putting that out there, let the public see everything. what's going on in this case. there's enough evidence to convict george zimmerman. this was not a case that -- you know, that trayvon attacked george zimmerman as we've maintained all along. the prosecutor, they did -- they brought this charge because they believe they could prove it. >> thanks very much to both of you. ahead "outfront" does being gay disqualify you from being a power player are in the republican party? a moon used to work for mitt romney openly gay, for gay marriage, a republican, comes out front. next, a surprising twist in the hierarchy of international drug cartels. those surprising little things she does

picture here. coming up in a second. police believe a self-described model and porn star killed lin a 33-year-old university student from china before stuffing his torso in a suitcase and stuffing body parts to political leaders in canada. i asked where police are looking for him today. >> erin, the international manhunt is on. police say they have reason to believe that suspect is near europe but don't exactly know where. they're telling me he had at least five-dares lead on the interpol wanted list. it's up in airports and train stapgss here. police pointing to the long and sordid trail of evidence that this suspect apparently left on the internet saying that he even poecht add video of the decapitation. police in kand davp saying that's proof enough for them. and this will help them in their investigation. but right now, they're pointing to his connections to france,
even here in london, perhaps the netherlands and hope to be able to catch up with his soon. the problem is now, though, with that lied, the fact he was already here on the continent for five days, many people concede he can travel throughout europe without being detected. erin? >> thanks to paula. now to mexico, a recent study found over 10% of organized crime group, led by women. and that number is growing. i asked rafael while rear seeing more and more women leading some of the most dangerous drug cartels on earth? >> erin, women end up as cartel bosses because they're the only ones flefrt a drug war where you see cartels fighting governments and government fighting cartels many have fall rch and wives, daughter, girlfriends have taken their place. according to a new book published in mexico, 46 women arrested in mexico in the last five years. for example, this woman known as

actually filming this footage. it spells the myth, really, that the queen was a hands-off mother. this was a very functional, happy family from the look of these home videos. also footage from behind the scenes of buckingham palace on the dap that the queen was crowned and prince charles relays this story how he was in the bath. the queen came ins with this priceless crown as she practiced wearing it. a very ordinary family in many way, at least that's what we've learned here, not just a queen, but a mother, erin. >> nice to see those pictures. and our fifth story "outfront," the foreign policy adviser to mitt romney who became so controversial hef quit his job before he even started. he was lam 3w5basted from the r. rick, spokesman for mitt romney in april but faced a backlash because he was gay. the romney campaign asked him to
lay low, but he resigned. i asked if he was surprised over the outcry over sexuality? >> i really wasn't. i'd been working in american politics for quite some time and really was not surprised. i think, though, it's fair to say that the intolerance was coming from the far right as well as the far left. and the far left instolerance doesn't get enough attention. the far right doesn't want a conservative to be gay and the part left doesn't want the gay tore conservative. >> between a rock and hard spot when you put it that way, but what made it so bad that you said, i can't do this anymore? >> well, you know, i'm a foreign policy guy. i'm somebody who has devoted my life to really thinking about policy, national security policy, and making sure that america is safe and strong. and i relished the opportunity to actually define for the
romney campaign and for governor romney a lot of these issues that i think president obama and his administration are really not doing a very good job on, and so i was hired because of that experience, and was looking forward it, but it just became increasingly clear that, you know, this is a campaign. it's not campaign. it's not governing. i spent eight years in the bush administration and was comfortably out and it was never an issue. but campaigns are different. >> you must feel pretty angry, right, that all of a sudden the fact that you're gay becomes how everybody is talking about you, that's what you're talking about, it's what determined if you kept the job. that has really got to make you mad? >> you know, i'm very comfortably gay and i'm very comfortably conservative. i understand politics. i've got my big boy pants on. it's a rough and tumble game. presidential campaigns are nasty, but i think governor romney can win this election by avoiding all of that talk.
you know, the obama campaign really wants to define republicans as either homophobic, misogynistic or racist. i think that's just their playbook. governor romney has got to ignore all of that noise that really the obama campaign is going to throw out there because frankly speaking, if obama tries to run on his record of four years, he is going to be a one-termer. he is absolutely going to lose. they cannot run on their record. >> so you've left the romney campaign, but as you said, your whole career has been in foreign policy. right now latest poll abc news washington post, 53% of the likely voters say the president will do better than mitt romney on the foreign policy issues. if there was one thing mitt romney needs to do on that number, what would he have to do? >> first of all, there's time to change people's opinions. we just got out of a bruising
republican primary battle. this is just the beginning of june. we've got a long time to take that message to the american people, and i think the american people will get into the voting booth and they will see what the past four years has not been good for america. we have struggled both internally and globally, and i think they will look at mitt romney and his record and say, let's have a businessman who really is passionate about making america exceptional again. let's give that guy a shot. >> so with all the things being said, obviously i'm aware you're going to vote for mitt romney. are you going to do so with passion and conviction given your personal decisions, your personal life, or are you going to do so just because he's the republican candidate? >> no, no, i've been on the romney campaign personally for a very long time. he was my pick in the beginning from the primary, and so i am passionate. i think he will be a great president. i think that at the end of the
day we all will go into that voting booth and make the decision according to a variety of issues. we're multi-facetted people. i wish i was a one-issue person. life would be more simple. now the 911 calls made during that horrifying zombie like attack in miami have literally just been released. we're going to play them for you right after this break.

. 911 calls made, the miami police department has just released some 911 calls made during the gruesome face eating attack in miami. they literally have just come out. here's the first one we have. we want to play it for you. >> yes. >> two bums were going at it with each other taking up the whole lane. i think they're fighting or something. yeah, just up the causeway. in like pedestrian area. >> you said there was three of them? >> i think there are two. >> two? were they black or white? >> black or hispanic. darker skin color. or maybe just very tan. >> what did you say they were doing? >> fighting with each other. they almost knocked over an old lady. >> you say they were in the
street? >> in the bike path or pedestrian walkway. the pedestrian causeway. >> you know the story. police shot and killed rudy eugene after the 18 minute attack on a homeless man. eugene was possibly on a drug known as basalt. he chewed out the face. it's horrific. paul, you've done a lot of cases. you've heard a lot of 911 calls. this is the first one. there could be others. to emphasize to everyone, this was in the middle of the afternoon. there were bikes going by, cars going by. what do you hear here? >> this is amazing. i'm always surprised when you hear the 911 tapes at how inaccurate what people are when they describe what they see. you talk about eye witness testimony being inaccurate. what you're going to hear are descriptions of bizarre things that we know don't correlate to what was going on. he was eating somebody's face. >> right. you would think -- the guy said
they were fighting. >> they were fighting. >> what we heard was growling and literally ripping. that was not part of this call. >> was he black? was he white? the guy says, well, he was a little tan. i mean, you know, it shows you about eye witness testimony how unreliable it is. we're going to see that in some other very prominent cases when witnesses get cross examined. >> right. >> these 911 tapes, you always hear this. >> one thing i'm curious about. this happened in broad daylight, on a causeway. the act that was going on was so horrific. it does defy emergency natioima. a lot of people biked by. maybe they were scared and they called 911 further down. is it common for people to just see something awful and just ignore it? >> it's extraordinarily common, especially in the big cities. anybody who lived in new york in the '70s remembers homeless people laid out in the street. people would just step right over them in the
