tv   Somebodys Gotta Do It With Mike Rowe  CNN  April 30, 2015 9:00pm-10:01pm PDT

9:00 pm
we're live from baltimore tonight where a curfew went into effect just two hours ago. protests are continuing here in baltimore, in philadelphia, in cincinnati, even jerusalem. and we have been getting new details all day regarding the investigation into the death of freddie gray. here is what we know right now. police records of the arrest are now in the hands of the
9:01 pm
prosecutor. a day earlier than planned. and the autopsy report could be sent to the state attorney as soon as friday. baltimore police revealed today the van carrying gray made a previously stop. soushss close to the investigation are cited saying there is no evidence suggesting gray was injured during his arrest. but his injuries do match a bolt inside the van. "the washington post" obtained a document in the case that citing a fellow prisoner who was inside the van. now, the man says he heard gray thrashing around, possibly trying to hurt himself, although a par transition blocked his view. so the question remains, what happened during that 40-minute ride with police? i'm don lemon. thank you so much. i want to welcome our viewers from here in the united states and around the world. and i want to get straight out
9:02 pm
to the field now with brian todd. >> don, a very impressive observance of this curfew. just two hours into it, our photo journalist and i are moving out into the intersection of north avenue and pennsylvania avenue. this, of course, the scene of so much of the tension over the last several days. on monday, this was the scene of looting, car burning, of fire at the cvs pharmacy over here. it was one of the most violent, chaotic scenes here in the city. over the past couple of nights, it has been the scene of some real tension tonight and other nights as far as just a couple of standoffs with the police which we're going to get to in a second. now, one of the things that we observed earlier tonight was when the curfew was approaching, there were still several people in the intersection. they were blocking the intersection. the police were telling us, they were mingingeling in the crowd. the police were telling us they wanted to see if some of the protest leaders could come back and actually talk to the
9:03 pm
protesters and get them away from the intersection. so what happened was they somehow somebody got congressman elijah cummings to come back to this intersection. mr. cummings has been a really impressive leader through all of this, addressing the crowds, tamping down their anger, basically telling them the status of the investigation, just giving them updates and telling them, look, you've got to be patient. he did it again tonight. i interviewed him just as he got to the scene and had talked to some protesters about vacating this intersection. here is what he had to say. >> we must allow the process to go forward. and all i can assure them and the senator and others is that we will stick with this case until the end. but the fact is is that now we have a state's attorney who we are very impressed with and very proud of. we trust her, we believe in her. and i know that she will -- i just want her to get the facts right. she will apply the law and come
9:04 pm
to her own conclusions. that's her job, okay? that's her job and i believe in her. >> that's what he told the protesters tonight. he succeeded, along with state senator catherine pugh in getting these protesters out of the intersection. he and some others, including the state senator, locked arms. they moved people out of the intersection. people them dispersed. but then when members of the media came back in, including my team and i, we came back in to see what the situation was was police. the police had moved in and formed a large cordon here. at that point, the police started to get a little upset with the media just hanging around in the intersection. they were saying on the loud speakers via helicopter for the media to get off the intersection. and then we witnessed the scene where one gentleman who did not want to obey the curfew right away was walking very slowly. he got enveloped by the police. we were right there filming him when he got swap swallowed up by
9:05 pm
this cordon of police officers. they jostled us and pushed us out of the way with their shields. we got shoved around a little bit, no big deal. but it does illustrate the tensions that can flare up with a slight spark, don, or a moment's notice or no moment's notice, frankly. that was a little bit scary, but it calmed down just as quickly. it does illustrate that sometimes the media's presence here what is does exacerbate things. we don't mean to do it, but sometimes the police and others get agitated with us. we tried to pull back from that scene as soon as we could, don. >> yeah. the guy got swallowed up by a sea of police officers there. it happened very quickly. you talked to us about the stranging strategy last night and every night i talk to you there seems to be fewer and is fewer police officers on the scene and on the streets. that's planned.
9:06 pm
>> i think it really is. they come into this with some real tactics in mind. i have to say the tactics we've seen have been pretty impressive. they are trying to find creative ways to not be confrontational. as i mentioned, we were observing them walking among the protesters who were hanging out in the middle of this intersection as the curfew approached. they were not pushing them back from the intersection. they did not want to be confrontational. they were looking for protest leaders to take these people off the intersection. and that eventually happened. in another instance, they moved their cordance to the side of the street and ringed the sidewalks. i asked the police commander why they were doing it that way. he said look, we want to give a softer appearance here. so the police are approaching this situation on the street with a great deal of sensitivity. of course, they and we and others have made our share of mistakes as we're moving around this fluid and sometimes chaotic situation. but very often, as we've observed the police in these
9:07 pm
situations, they are taking the measure of the crowd. they are being extremely careful, don. >> cnn's brian todd. brian, thank you very much. i want to get now to cnn's ryan young also on the streets of baltimore right now. ryan, you had an investigation going on right around you. >> don, this was a very calm night. one of the things you notice is when police step into an investigation mode, they start cordoning off sections of the area. we saw tape going up and we wanted to find out what was going on. this semi-truck right here, we noticed investigators were surrounding this area. this door is where they were standing. we saw going inside and collecting evidence. eventually we saw them remove a body from the inside of this truck. not sure how the person who was inside the truck died. we have found out that this was a driver who apparently had been missing for a few days. his family was looking for him. not sure how he died yet. that's a part of this investigation. but to show you how close this is to the protest scene, if you
9:08 pm
walk back this direction, you can see that cvs. that's the cvs that was burned down. that's the intersection where protesters have been for several days and then just down the way here, here is this semi-truck with someone dead on the inside. so, obviously, some strange circumstances. have to find out what happened here. >> all right, ryan young, thank you very much. appreciate your reporting. in a stunning revelation, baltimore police say during their investigation, they learned the van carrying gray made an undocumented stop. and other reports are raising troubling questions about what happened to gray inside the van. cnn's justice correspondent pamela brown has details from baltimore. >> the medical examiner found gray's deadly injuries were caused when he slammed into the back of the van, apparently breaking his neck according to cnn affiliate wgla. the sources telling wjla the
9:09 pm
head injury matched a bolt in the back of the van. when that injury happened is not clear. police relooes vealed that the trip after freddie gray was arrested included yet another stop, a stop police not ohm did not disclose but did not know happened until recently raising questions about gray's treatment after his arrest. >> we discovered this new stop based on our thorough and comprehensive and ongoing review of all cctv cameras. >> police said today the new information came from a private camera at this intersection, not from the police officers involved in his arrest and not from police logs of the van's trip. >> obviously, it raises all kinds of questions. somebody in the police department knew about this stop and what it suggests is that whoever was driving the van, whoever was involved in the van trip was not forthcoming. >> the newly disclosed stop was one of a series after gray was arrested. first, the police van pulled over here. this video shows police putting
9:10 pm
leg irons on freddie gray. the new stop happened next at this corner store. after that, police made a stop to, quote, deal with gray. that's when he allegedly asked for medical attention but didn't receive it then. a fourth and final stop was when police put another prisoner in the van. gray only received help once the van reached the police station 25 minutes later. the police commissioner said they could not see gray but he could hear him. >> he heard freddie thrashing about. >> according to a police document the prisoner told investigators gray was intentionally trying to injure himself. >> it's a very shaky statement and the fact that it was released is i think a transparent effort to try to affect the public discussion of the case. >> for more on the controversial report, joined now by ivan
9:11 pm
bates, a baltimore activist melice.m. thomas. i thank you both for joining us. the reports are contradictory at this point and they're going to be probably this early on in the investigation. >> yeah. that's often what you'll see is you have bits and pieces of the information, but we don't have the entire story. >> and what do you make of the reports about what happened in the back of the van, that they're still not sure. they're saying, well, we don't know if it was self-inflicted or if it was -- if it had to do with this excessive force by police? >> i think false allegations against black people are as american as apple pie. the state of maryland has a history of accusing people who are in police custody of killing themselves when they were found dead under mysterious situations. there was a similar situation in prince georges county a few years ago where a young man was handcuffed behind him back and there was a gunshot wound
9:12 pm
through his chest and they said he committed suicide in the back of the police car. so i think it's very fishy, it's very funny. and the crazy thing is, i'm not surprised. >> i walked around with d. watkins today, around his neighborhood and he showed me around and showed me what the problems are. but he also reacted earlier today regarding this preliminary report. take a look. >> the trust of the baltimore city police department is at an all-time low. we don't trust these medical examiners, don't know who they are or what they're doing. the family hasn't seen the documents yet. we should wait for the result. but again, if his neck was broken in the back of that van, obviously whoever was driving that van is a murderer. if you look at the video, his legs were limp. it definitely doesn't look like it happened in the van. >> he's passionate about the mistrust, he's passionate about not believing the report.
9:13 pm
and many people in the community are the same way. where does that come from? >> that comes from years of neglect. that comes from years of abuse. one of the things people don't necessarily understand, when you live in a neighbor and your neighborhood is a military zone in the sense that the police are always there, they're asking you questions, they want to stop you, they want to detain you, they want you you to give your identification and your own neighborhood. if we did that in some of the other neighborhoods in this country, there would be an uproar. but unfortunately, for many of the individuals that live in these high drug neighborhoods, the supreme court and some of the other cases have allowed the police and given the police that authority and that opportunity and, therefore, you have a disconnect and a distrust between the citizens and the police the. >> because of that, no matter how this investigation turns out, because of this many people will never, ever believe because they have so much distrust.
9:14 pm
yeah. for me, just individually, i don't trust anything that's going to come from the baltimore city police department completely. now, i do trust the work and the mind of the state's attorney for baltimore city maryland, moosby. she ran on a campaign about cases like these and i am fully confident in what she can produce. but as for the leaks that have tried to, i believe, intentionally contradict and confuse the information, i don't take it with anything more than a grain of salt. >> do you have confidence in moosby? >> well, one of my problems is that we do not know the process. maybe if we knew the process, then i think we could begin to understand should we have confidence. based on what she's done her first hundred days, unfortunately win do not. there's been a number of missteps that she's made from attorneys that were in the miller trial to putting the names of cooperating witnesses in her press released.. base odd that type of behavior,
9:15 pm
it appears that she's maybe a little confused about things that are happening. the simple fact that she's never handled a murder with this type of complex investigation, there are a number of people who are very good around here, but unfortunately a number of her deputies have never prosecuted a murder such as this. gathering that information, prepariing circumstantial natur, gathering a statement, can that statement be used under the law enforcement bill of rights. >> we all learn as we go on in our jobs, but are you saying this is not a learn on the job type of position? >> it is not. one of the things you have as lawyers, as oftentimes with doctors, you don't go to a new surgeon when they're going to do a looifr-saving procedure. you go to a surgeon that's been doing it for years upon years. this is a very complicated matter. plus i am concerned about the number of potential conflicts that she faces. >> but she was elected by the
9:16 pm
people of maryland. >> without a doubt she was elected. she ran a very good campaign. there comes a time that you have to no longer campaign and you have to produce. >> do you have confidence because it is not just her, it is also the department of justice, the police department conducting an investigation. people all over the country will be looking at this. are you confident this could play out and we will get to exactly what happened with freddie gray. >> i just hope america gets it right. baltimore is really just the tipping point. not only is the entire united states watching, but the world is watching and the world is aware of the policing policies throughout the united states. and if nothing is done to rectify it to bring justice, a transparent sense of justice, not a justice that takes place behind closed doors, i think
9:17 pm
they will not only create more distrust between the police in the community, but even greater distrust between the united states of america and the global community. >> if you can be brief because i have to get a commercial break, but are you confident, considering everything who is watching? >> confident in the department of justice and loretta lynch. thank you, gentlemen. a citywide curfew is in effect right now in baltimore after days of protests. coming up, we're going to visit other u.s. city wres hundreds of people continue to march in solidarity.

this is much more than fredy gray. freddie gray is a combination. the young guys are out here, showing their frustration, showing their venting, being angry and doing it in an unprotective way. they're carrying their father's and grandfather's burden. >> welcome back. that was baltimore councilman nick moosby voicing the frustration of many young people
9:22 pm
in the city. we're live in baltimore where police are enforcing a citywide curfew overnight for the third night in a row. crowds were in the streets tonight protesting the death of fredty gray, the african-american mesne man who died while in police custody. what exactly happened after his arrest? investigators found the injury gray suffered happened in the back of a police van and not during his arrest, according to some reports. but the question remains, how exactly was he so gravely hurt? according to a washington post report, a prisoner in the same van told investigators that he thought gray was intentionally trying to hurt himself. miguel marquez is in baltimore among the crowds. we caught up with him just moments after the citywide curfews went into effect. >> this is the interesting hour here.
9:23 pm
this is what chris was talking about here. it is mostly media out here, but there are a lot of people who have come back up here to challenge the police to some degree. that's north avenue at pennsylvania. they've blocked that off. they don't have all the protective gear on their bodies. they also, right up this way, they've blocked off pennsylvania as it runs north of here right next to the cvs. and they are sort of blocking them in as usual. i want to talk to mark cart right here who we've been chatting with for many days. you were in a meeting with city leaders talking about how to get beyond this. what do they say? >> absolutely. kudos to the city, b the influence, they want to remain incognito because it's not about the media, it's not about the publicity. what it is about is empowering young youth and showing them we understand where they're coming from and we encourage them to find a positive protest.
9:24 pm
what it consisted of today was a meeting of the minds. we're unifying in baltimore. it's a beautiful day for baltimore. the way it's being shown is one way but what's really going on sa beautiful site, as miguel can possibly tell you. >> what are the levels of concern at the city and how will they confront them? >> it's a deep concern and we're altogether as one. we want answers, we want justice. no justice, no peace. that's been the motion. we've found new piece of information that the city has given us. we don't necessarily -- it doesn't sit well with anyone. our stomachs are still turning. our 50s are still clench, passion because we want justice. we believe in the justice system and we want the justice system to do right by us so we can continue that truth. >> thank you very much. that is the big concern here. this idea, this leaked
9:25 pm
information that mr. gray has somehow harmed himself, despite the fact that he asked for medical attention before ever getting into the police van to begin with. protesters to some degree seem to be breaking up. it's actually hard to tell who are the police and who are the -- or who are the police and who are the protesters out here. there are so many media. on this corner over here, there are some more. but it seems, don, there far fewer protesters out here tonight than in previous nights. thousands have been marching in solidarity with baltimore, including in philadelphia the city of brotherly love, which you see right here. it began at city hall where hundreds gather to protest police brutality. one protesters telling poppy why he's involved. >> it was powerful and we're here to say that we're not going to just let them walk all over us.
9:26 pm
we are citizens of this country. i'm just as important as you and they should see that. >> scuffles erupted between police and protesters earlier in the evening when some in the group tried to block the entrance of the highway. two people were arrested. and in cincinnati, ohio, demonstrators heard from several speakers, then they marched to police headquarters just a few blocks away. protesters are expected throughout the u.s., at least into the weekend. the freddie gray death investigation now is in the hands of maryland's new chief prosecutor. just ahead, her personal connection to police and to baltimore's history of bloodshed.

9:30 pm
all in quiet in baltimore tonight where a citywide prot t tetest curfew is in effect. in philadelphia, tensions were high as protesters threatened to block a major highway. in jerusalem, protesters said they wanted to show their solidarity with the people of baltimore, as well. and baltimore police revealed today that the van carrying gray to jail made a previously unreported stop on its route. and our affiliate, wjla, has been reporting new information. it is citing sources close to the investigation who say there is no evidence suggesting gray was injured during his arrest. but his injuries do match a bolt inside that van.
9:31 pm
and an attorney for gray's family says there is no way that gray injured himself. as we watch these protests unfold, the baltimore city prosecutor marilyn mosby is urging calm. she'll now determine if there is sfusht evidence to pursue charges against anyone on the case. here is more on marilyn mosby as she faces this huge spotlight. she's the youngest chief prosecutor of a major american city and she's been on the job less than four months. but now, 35-year-old marilyn moseby has a huge decision to make that could calm the anger until the city she loves. >> that is a police car that they're vandalizing right there. >> or possibly re-ignite riots. >> i know the state's attorney is committed to seeing justice. >> moseby says she'll review the police findings of freddie gray's death as well as an investigation by her office as
9:32 pm
she considered any criminal charges against the six officers involved in his arrest. >> we have much more confidence in her than we have in the police. >> moseby's views on crime and punishment were shaped while she was young. >> i come from a long line of police officers. >> her mother, father, grandfather and four uncles all wore a badge. >> despite what we all might want to think, the police officers in our cities are doing their jobs. >> it actually hit really close to home. >> moseby says she decided to become part of the justice system after crime hit home. >> my cousin, who was extremely close to me, was like my best friend, was killed on my front door steps. >> as protests spread across baltimore and the nation, there's enormous pressure on moseby to prosecute the officers. some of that pressure may come from her own husband, the father
9:33 pm
of her two young daughter, who also happens to be a city councilman. >> she's a strong woman. you know, she is built for this. >> i'm joined now by baltimore activist melik and thomas. she is very well connected. her husband, other family members and she comes from a line of people who have worn the badge. >> indeed, she's very well connected, not just with city hall, but she's well connected with the community. i first met her in 2013 at a community forum on education. she wasn't coming to make a stump speech. she was coming to hear how education can be better handled in the plaque community within baltimore. >> but she is well connected in city hall and in government and some people, as we had a guest earlier, they find that to be a conflict of interest.
9:34 pm
do you? >> if it's a conflict of interest to be connected to the people that can help you get what you need to get done, i don't know exactly what her being elected was for. i think it's necessary for you to maintain some relationship. it doesn't mean that you need to go out and have a beer with them every night, but i believe marilyn moseby has the character and integrity to handle the pressu pressure. i wonder whether she would have been under the same scrutiny had her name been mark moseby. >> she is 35 years old, the youngest prosecutor in any big city. she's only been on the job for, what, four months? some question her experience. is that fair? >> no. we didn't question too much the experience of a funny named senator from illinois when he was running for president and that's why he's done such a great job over the past eight years, whatever your politics are. but i believe that the reason you've seen so much scrutiny is
9:35 pm
because we have not learned how to trust not only young leadership, but also because she does not have the same gender of most of the people that are in power. >> you're correct. and i think women get scrutinized a lot more. but when you're in that position where you're a prosecutor and paying say she has never tried a homicide or a murder case, experience does count. >> i think it depends on what defines experience. if you're talking about the experience of her having a relative killed because of mistaken identity, i think that counts as a little more experience -- >> when she was 17, she had a relative who was killed. but i think it had something to do with drugs, but it wasn't her relative. it was a mistaken identity. so she has dealt with that sort of thing before. >> and i think that's the experience that matters. in city hall or capitol hill or wherever we find our leaders, we don't need leaders with simply experience within what we have already seen that is sometimes inherently corrupt. we need people with the
9:36 pm
experience of what it means to suffer as human beings and citizens of baltimore, of maryland, of the united states, so that they can identify with the people and not just the lobbyists. >> what were the circumstances surrounding her election? was the person that came before her liked, disliked? was she perceived as someone who would make a positive change and that's why she was voted into office? >> i think most definitely. the person who came before her was -- i mean, you talk about skepticism, i think you want to measure levels of skepticism in terms of the government, the previous state's attorney and then maybe the baltimore police department, but those go hand in hand. i think marilyn moseby presented something fresh, something that was relatable for the majority of citizens in this city and not just a small pocket of people who want to maintain control. >> so here is the thing. you always have your critics, as they say, haters are going to
9:37 pm
hate, right? can you imagine, though, being a young person, 35 years young, only being on the job for four months and all of a sudden, you have this drops on to your plate? that is a lot of pressure. this is a big spotlight to be under. and honestly, don, i think she's handled it pretty well. because if she was truly as inexperienced as people said she was, i would think she would try to rush through this case so she could be in the spotlight and make sure that she would do things quickly. >> you don't think she's rushing? >> no. i think she's being deliberate and she's being patient. you have not seen much of her out, speaking to the press and to the public, because she wants to be as deliberate as possible. so i have full confidence that she'll be able to deliver justice that is equitable. >> do you feel there was any influence because this preliminary report was delivered early? do you think she was influential in that? >> not at all. >> you don't?
9:38 pm
>> no. >> do you think they wanted to get it to her because she is a new, tough prosecutor in a sense? >> i think what they were trying to do is that if they have already skewed some of the facts behind the case, that when the when the facts are released, instead of the blame being on the police, they will be on a black woman so it won't be a racial thing. but i think it is a psychological defense mechanism called displacement. and i think 245es what the baltimore police department is trying to do. >> thank you. i appreciate your insight. when we come right back, we'll bring you more news out of baltimore in the coming hour. but we are following other top stories, as well. dramatic rescues five days after that devastating earthquake in the fall. we'll tell you how they survived, when we come back. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] he doesn't need your help.

welcome back. there's a third night in a row of a curfew in baltimore. crowds marched peacefully through this city on thursday, protesting the death of freddie gray while in police custody. varying accounts have emerged about what exactly happened after gray's arrest. now, according to law enforcement sources, contacted by our affiliate wjla, investigators found the injury happened in the back of a van, not during his arrest. natalie allen has the latest on the devastating earthquake in nepal. hello, natalie. >> hi, don. thanks so much. the death toll from the massive earthquake in nepal has climbed to 6,100. rescuers keep searching for reasons like this. a 24-year-old woman found alive in the rubble of a hotel where she worked. five days after the quake. the woman was breathing and had her eyes open after the rescue
9:43 pm
team spent eight hours getting her out. and then there's this 15-year-old boy, dehydrated, but otherwise okay. he spent the past five days shielded by a motorcycle under a collapsed apartment building in kathmandu. it took rescue teams more than five hours to find him after they heard his voice coming from within the debris. how about those two stories? the full stens of the destruction in nepal is still not clear as rescue teams try to reach remote villages in the country's mountains and foot hills. dr. sanjay gupta has been on the front lines, and he's not just reporting, he is a highly skilled surgeon and he put his training to use on thursday saving one woman's life. >> sometimes it takes a village to reach a village. and right now, they are trying to save a village. just east ott kathmandu, cinder palchuk is the hardest hit area,
9:44 pm
more devastation and more deaths here than anywhere else. they need everything, anything. >> we are seeing how some of this relief works. first of all, they're getting a lot of assistance from other countries. noodles. instant noodles, one of the biggest relief items, combined a instant source of calories and finally, the tarps. this is so badly needed because of the weather conditions where we're going. one of the challenges we are told, this team has no idea what they will find when they arrive. we quickly see what that means. the propellers never even stop as we drop off aid supplies. suddenly an 18-year-old mother was thrust into the aircraft door. makeshift stretcher. we only know her name. sabina. you see her husband and 1 and a half month old baby. as i examine her, i quickly realize she has no movement and
9:45 pm
no accepts saying in her legs. sabina is paraplegic. then, things get worse. minutes into our flight now, sabina stops breathing. we can no longer detect a pulse. either on her wrist or in her neck. i check her pupiles and try desperately to route her as we blast over the countryside. there are no iv fluid owes this helicopter, no defibrillator, not even a first aid kit and this young woman is going into cardiac arrest. it is aggressive, but i just delivered a cardiac thump, a quick, strong hit to the chest in a last ditch effort to shock sa by-na's heart back into action. whether it worked or not, i can't say for sure, but she came back. and for a moment, everything
9:46 pm
