tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  May 9, 2015 8:00am-12:01pm PDT

8:00 am
heroes.com. thanks for watching. >> we've got more ahead in the next hour of the cnn news room. let's turn it over to our colleague, ana cabrera enter for fred today. >> fred is getting her first mother's day weekend off, she told me. >> well deserved. >> good to see you, have a great rest of the weekend. it's the 11:00 hour of newsroom, it starts right now. thanks so much for joining me again, i'm ana cabrera in for fredricka witfield this weekend. north korea catching many by surprise today, firing missiles this morning. a south korean defense official telling cnn that the country launched three ship-to-ship missiles just off their eastern coast. this follows that underwater test of a ballistic missile from a submarine last night according to north korean state news. cnn international correspondent will ripley is joining us on the phone. live from hong kong.
8:01 am
just returned from north korea. in fact will any indication on why north korea is suddenly flexing this military might? >> this is a major achievement for them. if it is accurate they've been working for quite sometime to try to develop a ballistic missile that they could launch from a submarine. it gives them much more flexibility as to where they could launch an attack from. so of course an attack like that would be much more difficult to defend against. in fact kim jong-un in state media was comparing this to north korea's three successful satellite launches this is nothing new it doesn't necessarily signal more north korea ramping up its military effort this is a country that's constantly investing a considerable amount of money into it's military. even though it doesn't have a whole lot of money to go around. it doesn't have enough money to feed adequately all of the people in the country. they have the mindset that they're under the constant
8:02 am
threat of invasion so they're developing technology like this. >> as you mentioned, the submarine ballistic missile launch seems to be most concerning which could potentially open up the north-the-ability to attack anywhere and that's what we fear right? what do you know about what appear to be new capabilities with north korea. >> i was sitting a a high-level north korean official. he said they have nuclear devices and i asked if they had a ballistic missile, a long-range ballistic missile capable of striking the mainland united states. and without flinching, he said yes. so this is yet one more indication because north korea views the united states as their primary enemy. i felt it on the ground i had so many people tell me that they hate the united states. they're angry at the u.s. they feel that the united states' alliance with south korea is a direct threat to their sovereignty. that's the mindset in that
8:03 am
country and so they yes, they're developing technology that they feel could potentially strike back against some sort of an attack against the u.s. the u.s. has not given any indication that they're planning anything like that. but north korea feels it could be imminent. >> will ripley. thank you so much. >> the u.s. state department is responding and reacting to these missile tests, calling on north korea to refrain from actions that further raise tensions in the region. cnn correspondent sunlen serfaty is live at the white house now. tell us more about the reaction from the white house and the state department following these missile tests. >> well ana, the state department is urging restraint. but i should say they're doing it broadly without confirming directly the new missile tests by the north koreans. only saying they're aware of the reports. but noting broadly if it's true they would be in violation of multiple u.n. security council resolutions, a state department official telling cnn we call on
8:04 am
north korea to refrain from actions that further raise tensions in the region and focus instead on taking concrete steps towards fulfilling its international commitments and obligations and the state department official says of course the u.s. government will continue to monitor any activities out of north korea, especially military. back to you. >> there's little the u.s. can do to stop north korea from conducting these tests, isn't there? >> there is very little that they can do and the u.s. has had very little influence over north korea in the past. as will ripley just noted. north koreans view u.s. as their primary enemy. the u.s. has tried to push them a bit. but that has not helped at all. there's a long history of provocation from the north koreans continuing even in the last few months. >> sunlen serfaty, at the white house, thank you so much. just getting some breaking
8:05 am
news out of iraq. reports today of a huge prison break. happened just outside of baghdad where dozens of inmates we've learned may have escaped following a riot. some appear to have ties to terror what could be even more troubling is that isis is claiming responsibility for this prison break. cnn's jarman is on the phone for us what can you tell snus. >> we have two versions of how the prison break happened and what took place. we're hearing from the iraqi government. the iraqi officials and isis in its claim of responsibility. according to interior ministry they say that prisoners inside this prison in the town of hala northeast of baghdad, they gained control of a weapon. from a guard and started clashes inside this prison. five guards were killed. 30 inmates they say werehood killed in the clashes. a total of 40 inmates managed to
8:06 am
escape. nine were in prison or terrorism charges. we're also hearing from isis. releasing a claim online that we're seeing they describe a different event that took place in this prison. it sounds like a complex coordinated attack they say. that began with the detonation of about 15 improvised explosive devices outside the prison and they say there was a level of coordination for what they describe as the zero hour for this prison break between inmates inside the prison and militants outside. they say that there are inmates inside the prison were able to gain control of the weapons storage facility and managed to break out about more than 30 inmates who they describe as the knights of the caliphate. now ana, to put it into context we have seen several prison breaks in iraq over the past couple of years this is not as large scale as the previous ones
8:07 am
we've seen including abu ghraib in 2013 where militants were broken out. hundreds and also last year as we saw isis sweeping through more than iraq. there have been several prison breaks and this is a town ana, in northeast of baghdad in the province of diala. a province that the iraqi government iraqi officials earlier this year include liberated from isis underscores that this group is still capable and able to carry out such complex attacks. >> thank you so much. i want to talk more about this with johnnathan gilliam. a former navy s.e.a.l. how important is it to you that this priv break happened? >> the whole string of prison breaks is very troubling. it's another way that isis is showing that they have control wherever they want to have control over there.
8:08 am
and their fighting techniques are such that they go into a fighting and they're either waiting and learning about the area so they can go in and take it over or they have the ability to muster up brute force and the iraqis are unable to repel that i think again, this is another example of a lack of an overall war plan by this entire coalition. led by the united states where we don't have adequate forces in a region that is quickly crumbling to isis. >> but isn't it easy for isis to take responsibility for something like this without really having done any kind of coordination? i mean we're hearing reports that it was some prisoners who were able to gain control of a weapon from one of the guards. and one thing led to another and their ability to get out and trying to tie into other explosions that happened near baghdad with the prison break. is it for them some morale boost that they say sure we took responsibility. we are responsible for that? >> you know it very well could
8:09 am
be. i think sheafthey've shown in some of the surrounding towns with the takeout of oil refinery. they've shown they have the ability to do this. even if they didn't do it they they've shown and displayed their ability in a war region to go in and actually do this and there were people in there that they probably would have liked to have had back. and so i don't know if it's necessarily going to come down to the fact to weather wl they did or didn't. we know they could have and we know we have no strategic war plan. >> i want to pivot a little bit to this terror threat level that was raised yesterday at military bases and installations, and obviously when you see something like this happening, it all comes together because isis is the sort of connecting figure so to speak in all of this. we all know that the threat level has been raised to bravo. which you can see in the chart is sort of the mid range,
8:10 am
potential terrorist threat is out there without any guarantee. but we also heard from the director of the fbi talk about potential terrorist sympathizers and isis sympathizers all over the country. that they're trying to track. so do we have a serious concern here in the u.s.? >> i tell you one of -- yes, we do have a serious concern. as we saw in garland, texas there are groups already in the united states that are ready to attack. and it didn't take them very long to muster up a plan in order to go into garland. what i have a real problem with this color coding system and the way that the military is amped up their force protection. i'm a big believer in proponent force protection. think that the military should have been at a more heightened state all the time because we are in a war time footing. but my problem is it does nothing to secure the surrounding areas. so base ups their security force
8:11 am
protection awareness, but yet right outside the gate is where a lot of the military families live. it's war lot of businesses are. the towns need to really follow right in line with that. >> when we found in the case of garland, texas, it wasn't a military installation that was attacked. >> it could be anywhere. and garland texas is the perfect example, because if those two individuals had turned around and went to walmart right around the corner they could have probably killed 100 people. you can secure some type of a publicity stunt or you can secure a base. but you have to secure the area around it as well and the public has to become aware. every time i'm on here on the weekends i try to mention that awareness is key in all of this. >> matt definitely increased awareness in the threat level. john jonathan gill yam thank you very much. we go deep inside isis on monday

in the news room mailen mosby under fire. lawyers for the police officers charged with the death of freddie gray want her off the case. plus will tom brady be suspended for deflategate? for how long? and russia's show of military might, a celebration of the victory over nazi germany, snubbed by western allies. newsroom continues now. good saturday morning, thanks so much for joining me, i'm ana
8:32 am
cabrera, the six baltimore police officers chrjed in the death of freddie gray are calling for the prosecutor to be removed from the case. their attorneys are asking the court to dismiss district attorney's marilyn mosby, claiming she has a conflict of interest in the case. cnn's sara sidner is on the story. joining us live from baltimore. the latest move comes just after the u.s. attorney general was there announcing a justice department probe of the entire police department. >> that's right. you know the department of justice has said it is going to come in take a look top to bottom at its department and patterns and practices, we should mention that these attorneys for these six officers who were charged in the death of freddie gray after he was in police custody, they are coming back at the prosecuting attorney at the main prosecutor in this case. who brought these charges forward. and saying that there's a conflict of interest. they believe that marilyn mosby
8:33 am
has several conflicts, five that they listed in 109-page document that they submitted to the court. cull of those i'll lay out for you. one is ha she's married to nick mosby, who is a council member who represents the district where freddie gray was killed. saying there's political gain on his part in some sense, because his constituents wanted to see those charges go forward. wanted to see a conviction. there's also some allegation about her having some kind of personal relationship with some of the potential witnesses. there's an allegation about her knowing and being friends with the attorney that represents freddie gray. her husband and herself friends with him and he was a supporter in her campaign. as well. so there's several things here. but i don't think anybody should be surprised in any way, that we are now seeing the defense start coming out with its tactics and what it is going to do. very normal in the justice system to see this sort of thing and we'll have to see how it plays out. we do know this we talked to
8:34 am
ms. mosby and her husband at length last sunday and some of the allegations were already out there because the police union had brought some of these allegation allegations, the one about her husband and the relationship with gray. we asked her about whether or not she believes she has a conflict of interest in this case. >> there is no conflict of interest. i mean i'm going to prosecute, i'm the baltimore city state's attorney. my jurisdiction covers every district in baltimore city. i have there's a number of crimes that take place in baltimore city and unfortunately in the district that we live. where is the conflict? what i have to to take myself away from every case or crime that takes place in west baltimore? that makes absolutely no sense. >> right, so you heard there, she's adamant there is no conflict. we should mention this, while she is the lead prosecutor the chief prosecutor of this office the state's attorney. it is unlikely that she herself will actually try this case. more likely that one of her veteran prosecutors who has tried many cases in the past
8:35 am
will take go forward and there's been a lot of people talking also about her credentials. because she is very new to this office just six months in. she hasn't tried a lot of cases. but certainly she feels confident that she can do this. she feels confident that her office can do this. the police officers' union and the lawyers for the six officers don't believe that and they want the office to step back. >> just quickly, sara who would decide whether marilyn mosby stays or goes ultimately? >> this will be something that's sort of battled out between the two in court. we'll have to wait and see ha her response is there will need to be a response. to the petition that was filed in court. we'll have to wait and see because there is no independent prosecutor that's been put on this case and i think it's pretty clear that her office is not planning on asking for that. it looks like going forward this is certainly a tactic from the defense. we'll have to see what happen notice future.
8:36 am
ana? >> sara sidner in baltimore. thank you very much. new developments we're following in the death of a college student. at the hands of police officers in georgia. nine deputies involved in the incident have now been fired. matthew adubati was found dead in an isolation cell on new year's day. his family said he was put in a restraining chair and was tazed. police say he was combative. but the family lawyer says he's bipolar and that should be have been taken into account. he was arrested for allegedly hitting his girlfriend at this gas station. you can can see in this surveillance video that the girlfriend is under a blanket with adubati clutching her it appears. it's up to the district attorney to decide whether to file criminal charges against the officers at the jail. ahead, moscow's massive victory day celebration. was about more than just marking the 70th anniversary of the ends of world war ii. geopolitical tensions were thick as vladimir putin took a veiled

victory over nazi germany and the end of world war ii. towards military parade features some 16,000 soldiers. 200 armored vehicles and 150 aircraft leaders from china, india and venezuela were enter attendance many western leaders skipped the event in protest of russia's military involvement in the conflict in ukraine. with sus a public policy scholar from woodrow wilson center and former cnn moscow bureau chief, the day's events seemed to highlight the geopolitical tensions with russia. >> it did after all, you know when you look at this. and russians celebrated every year of course this is the big celebration of 70 years. so there was a lot of symbolism, a lot of national pride, mr. putin certainly delivering the message to the people of russia
8:42 am
that they're back they're powerful. they won the war and they're an important country now. you could also say that he was advertising as you see, later some of the weapons, especially the tanks that russia eventually will have for sale. but you know on the other side the lack of president obama and other western leaders was a very good indication of what's going on right now. they are not there because of what's happening in ukraine and russia's steps and the conflict in ukraine, and that russia is a lot more cut off from the west than it ever has been before. president putin i was listening to see if he would mention the states and he definitely did it was a pretty quick note thanking the united states france and other countries who were part of the allied forces. but then also saying you know this monopolar world that that the united states has tried to

8:44 am
influential party with north korea and it's been useful in some negotiations so perhaps that. but obviously you know when the russians said early on a few weeks ago that kim jong-un has other things domestic situation, et cetera. we all began to wonder what it was and now we know that as usual, north korea wants to steal the spotlight from everyone and they kind of did. >> timing is everything jill doherty, thank you so much. one newspaper is reporting that roger goodell will hand coop a suspension to quarterback tom brady next week for his role in deflategate. but the nfl is quick to say not so fast. we'll hear what folks in new england are saying right after this.

roger goodell himself to go over things one more time. and he thought it was going to be another week. could being along as next friday. >> a whole week. >> until we hear a decision and if there will be punishments. >> already a lot of talk of what that punishment should or could be. christopher, given the patriots' history, this is not the first, before deflate-gate we had spy gate how does this scandal, one, tarnish the patriots' franchise and impact the potential legacy of tom brady. >> i'll take the second question firps i think it's going to be part of the conversation ultimately when it's said and done. but at the end of the day i don't think this will take too much away from his legacy. i think he'll go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks if not the best quarterback of all time. the patriots are used to dealing with scandals like this over the course of the last dozen or so years. the thing that's interesting to me i've covered this team since 2001 it's first time it's the
8:52 am
quarterback in the crosshairs as opposed to the coach or another part of the franchise. >> tom brady, the golden boy of the sport. people may have envy for his good looks, his amazing talent you know. >> his hair. >> throwing the ball married to a supermodel. is this perhaps being blown out of proportion because people want to poke holes in his image? >> i don't think so being it's the second case dealing with his team and with his head coach, the new england patriots. i think what's interesting with this there are 31 other teams watching to see what's going to happen. cow how will goodle bring down the hammer? more probably than not, nfl speak for guilty in the report. >> you've been talking to other players. >> yes, i have. >> i talked to a current starting quarterback in the nfl and his take was like look if they can't -- if -- even if they don't provide definitive evidence that tom brady was
8:53 am
guilty he should at least be suspended for a game and be fined i'm talked to a hall of fame player he was livid, this is unacceptable. he wants four to six games for tom brady and he wanted the organization to have similar fines that he had during spy gate. that was $250,000 for the organization 500,000 for the head coach, bill belichick. they were cleared of any guilt in this in the report but remember in bounce gate sean payton of the saints he was found to be cleared of all guilt but suspend for an entire year. >> for a whole year. >> for a whole year. what happens in your house, you're responsible for. this is the second case for the patriots. >> if i could jump in here real quick, i think it's interesting because the league i believe, really has to tread kind of cautiously here because there's no legal precedent when talking about this. it's not like they caught a quarterback in 2004 messing around with footballs is say we gave him two games and fined him
8:54 am
$100,000. there's no template to work from. the other thing that's important to remember sounds like you talked to a couple of quarterbacks, one quarterback out there, i can really -- i can tell you there are 31 other quarterbacks across the national football league watching this closely because if they come after tom brady, they're going to come after manning and rog ders and every other quarterback because we know i'm not saying they all do it but quite frankly, they all do it when it comes to pretreating footballs, it's fairly common practice across the national football league. ultimately i'll end on this, there is no smoking gun within the wells report that directly implicates tom braidy there's circle evidence but bottom line there are no texts from tom brady to either one of the two equipment managers specifically saying underinflate the footballs outside the legal psi window. >> christopher price, we'll have to leave it there. thanks you you and coy wire. we'll talk with legal experts to get their take on the report coming up in the next hour of

ballistic missile and three from ship-to-ship. plus massive hail tornadoes and flooding. thousands without power today as more dangerous storms are forming in the plains. and homegrown terror concerns have u.s. military basesbase bases all across the country on heightened alert today. the fbi investigating hundreds of suspected isis sympathizers in the u.s. you're live in this "cnn newsroom." hello again on this saturday thank you for joining me i'm ana cabrera, in for fredricka. glad to have you with us. i want to bring in breaking news out of iraq. reports today of a prison break that happened just outside of baghdad, where we're learning more now, dozens of inmates, apparently escaping following a riot. some inmates appear to have ties
9:02 am
to terror and more troubling is that isis has now claimed responsibility for this. i want to bring in senior international correspondent nick paton walsh joining us from beirut. nick what more can you tell us about the prison break? >> reporter: well isis in that point of view, extolling this operation and seems be according to their account complex. they attacked a number of security and military vehicles around this prison in the town to the north of baghdad, supposed to be an area the government say, purged devices about a month ago. they laid a number of ieds, booby trap bombs to you and me in vehicles around that area. simultaneously detonated them and then able to storm into the prison. not a massive facility but clearly an important one for them willing to expend this much potential human capital in releasing inside what they refer to as 30 of their knights, differing numbers here.
9:03 am
officials suggesting 40 people were rescued and only 9 there for terror-related offenses. but the isis statement makes it clear that many of these faced the death penalty. so left with a confusing picture sheer here. this should be an area where isis didn't have ability to project power where the security forces should have been in control. it's clear that wasn't the case in this instance. and then ask yourself how important were these men for isis? clearly pretty and potentially, too, in a time we're hearing negative news of isis losses on the battlefield, perhaps they're choosing to launch an operation like this and then make public scene about it comparative success might suggest they're looking hard for a victory at this stage. but this goes back to an early tactic they had, ana, when they blasted into abu ghraib near baghdad as well releasing hundreds potentially of their sympathizers and key commanders
9:04 am
once again at it here. >> nick paton wash in beirut for us. joining me now, lieutenant colonel tony schaffer former intelligence officer, joining us washington. colonel schaffer you're hearing what nick reported about the prison break. how big of a setback is this in the war against isis? >> we've been on the offensive and this is them pushing back. they've reorganized and able to actually do a very direct infiltration of iraqi security forces a location that most figured was very much in a secure zone. so this tells me two things. first, isis is back trying to figure out a way to get back on the offensive, which they've not been doing as well lately and, secondly clearly, they're regrouping and using tactics which have been -- served them well in the past i'm think this may be indicative of a new wave of offensive actions by isis to show that they have not left the battlefield, that while we've bloodied them they are not
9:05 am
defeated and this may be a bad thing over the summer. >> you do get a sense they're not only making headway there in iraq in that region but also in their ability to recruit, after we just learned of developments from the pentagon raising the security level at military bases around the u.s. fol following that terror-inspired attack in texas on american soil. i want to talk about the threat level bravo, this threat has only been raised or this level marked on four other occasions, the most recent one being the tenth anniversary of september 11th. so what do you make of the timing and why specifically on military bases? >> well two things. first, there's been a very direct evidentiary chain that isis is targeting military. last fall via internet isis targeted a father/son air force team very sophisticated. in the last three months isis put together a targeting packet able to use data mining online
9:06 am
to identify u.s. personnel as targets and they were all notified. this is, i think, a logical step up based on the fbi director admitting he's doing a hundred investigations. what's not talked about the fbi's indicted 25 individuals who they believe to be isis co-conspirators behind the scenes. i think d.o.d. is doing the most prudent thing it can, taking the level one up based on the current threat information, which i find very credible. >> final question on that last note you mentioned, 25 people arrested in the u.s. just since january, it seems like there's a huge uptick in u.s. people u.s. citizens or suspects being connected to isis. do you think that is a result of isis having that much more effectiveness in its recruiting ability or is there a greater awareness by u.s. personnel and intelligence people? >> no i think u.s. -- i think our people are getting a leg up on it with that said.
9:07 am
no i think isis is everything al qaeda wanted to be. al qaeda could not never figure out a way to congeal support within the united states. they did not hit that thread and pull it. isis found that thread and pulling it repeatedly. the individual who did the isis attack in texas, by the way, was radicalized back about 2006. long before isis. isis simply has come along and given a face attitude and frankly an operational focus to this jihad attitude that's been going on for a while. isis is effective using social media, figuring out how to gain access to people. and i think james comey is the right man for the job, doing everything he can to get the fbi focused on this. >> colonel, thank you for joining us. monday night, cnn is going deep inside isis who are these people what exactly do they want? be sure to watch "blindsided," fareed zakaria report cnn monday night at 9:00 eastern and pacific. north korea fleckxing military

9:09 am
tremendous amount of money that the north korean regime is putting into its military program. i was on the ground in pyongyang of the underwater test fire of ballistic missile, launched from a strategyic submarine off the coast. the supreme lead's movements are kept secret. the supreme leader was quoted as saying he compares this milestone, being able to launch a ballistic missile to north korea's successful satellite launches three satellites that have gone successfully into orbit and feel the missile technology is on par with that kind of achievement. >> the u.s. state department is responding certainly, to those missile tests. it's calling nose north korean launches a clear violation of several united nations security council resolutions. cnn correspondent sunlen serfaty
9:10 am
is live at the white house and joins us with more. >> reporter: the state department is calling for restraint but they're doing so without confirming reports about these new missile tests out of north korea, noting they are aware of the reports and broadly speak missile tests would be in violation of u.n. security council resolutions. a state department official telling cnn, quote, we call on north korea to refrain from actions that further raise tensions in the region and focus instead on taking concrete steps towards fulfilling its international commitments and obligations. in a state department official also says of course they continue to monitor the situation in north korea with emphasis on the military activities. >> sunlen serfaty, thanks again, joining us from the white house. coming up -- attorneys for the six baltimore police officers who were charged in the death of freddie gray they want the state's attorney removed from the case. we'll ask cleveland's former

marilyn mosby, claim that mosby has conflicts of interest and questions about her office of independent investigation. this after u.s. attorney general loretta lynch announced a justice department investigation of the baltimore police department similar to the one we saw of the department of ferguson missouri following the death of michael brown. >> this investigation will begin immediately, and will focus on allegations that baltimore police department officers used excessive force, including deadly force, conduct unlawful searches seizures and arrests, and engage in discriminatory policing. >> now, baltimore is just the latest department the feds are looking into. right now, the justice department is enforcing ten consent orders and six out of court settlements on different law enforcement agencies. it is also suing for police agencies that refuse to change their habits. and there are nine open investigations going on across the country. that gives you a gist of how busy the justice department is

9:22 am
might some of the suggested changes have to do with management and the department structure? >> yes. it's going to be in the area of management it's going to be management control, training policy. there's going to be a whole lot of stipulations. these stipulations will be folded into either a consent decree overseen by a judge, through a monitor, or a memorandum of agreement, which there will be a monitor team that will look at these things. >> in some urban areas, we know cops don't always live where they work. how much does that play into maybe the mind-set or the care and concern an officer has in the community in which he's on the beat? >> i think it does make a difference. i think when officers live in the community that they serve, they have more of an ownership in the quality of life and so i think they're going to have a higher level of commitment. that's not to say you can't be an effective officer if you don't live in the community but officers that live in the community really have a higher level of commitment because

hello again. thanks for staying with us i'm ana cabrera in for fredricka whitfield. a threat of nasty weather bearing down bringing hail flooding possible tornadoes, all taking shape today affecting nearly 17 million people in the path of these extreme storms in a reege. >> that's already been hit by severe weather over the last week. cnn's ryan young is joining me in oklahoma city. ryan what are the conditions like now? and how are people preparing? >> reporter: we can feel the wind picking up but people are bracing for what could happen in the future here. i want it to show you something to set the scene. we're in an area that got hit in the last few days by other storms that came through. you see the two police officers up here that are watching over this hotel. but as we move back in this direction, look at that car that was hit by the tornado that just came through here in the last few days. and then when you step back and look at this motel and see the power that was cut through here
9:28 am
we drove around just in the last half hour or so and you can see how the storm blew through several different places it hit some buildings, skipped others but in this area it devastated. the people in the hotel had to get evacuated. there were some injuries in the ar but no one was killed in the last one that came through. we are expecting storms. we have more than four crews in this area working their way around just to make sure when the storm hits that we're in position to make sure people know about where to avoid. if you look back this direction, a storage facility it got slammed. nothing left. people who were here we've talked to them. they're just trying to find some of their items, maybe they can salvage it before the rain hits later this afternoon. a woman was telling us she lost her husband and storing their household items in the storage facility and then this happened. you can understand why she wanted to get some of her belongings out of here before the next storm hits. so sad to see those pictures.
9:29 am
do we know what they're expecting specifically in oklahoma city in that area where you are? is it mostly flooding concerns or is the tornado concern the threat? >> reporter: well you know there's a application of both. we drove yesterday from oklahoma city down to the texas line and we saw flooding and hail all throughout the area. we got the warnings. now today, expecting more rain. but you know how this works, this area's saturated with all of that water. it has to go somewhere. and with more rain expected hopefully they don't get hit hard today. so they don't have to deal with that flooding and that constant wind that could be coming to this area later this afternoon. >> all right. cnn's ryan young on top of it for us stay safe. we appreciate your time and effort out there. we're still waiting for the fallout for the super bowl champion new england patriots and quarterback tom brady, after this week's release of the report on deflate-gate. now the new york "daily news" is reporting, commissioner nfl commissioner roger goodell is going to announce some kind of suspension for brady next week.
9:30 am
but the nfl says no decision has been made just yet. it's a 243-page report that claims brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities by a couple of patriots employees accused of deflating footballs to make them easier to catch and throw at the super bowl. brady talked briefly about this report just on thursday night. >> when do you plan to address this publicly? >> hopefully soon. hopefully soon. there's still a process that's going forthright now and you know i'm involved in that process. whenever it happens, it happens, and i'll certainly want to be very comfortable in how i feel about the statements that i make. >> so he didn't say anything really. but his agent called the report a significant and terrible dis disappointment. the report's conclusion reads, it is more than probable than not that mcnally and jastremski
9:31 am
the locker room attendants they participated in a deliberate effort to release air from patriots' game balls after the balls were tested by the game officials. we believe it is unlikely that an equipment assistant and a locker room attendant would deflate game balls without brady's knowledge and approval. so should brady and/or patriots be pun,ed for this? joining us live brian claypool defense attorney, and tim janzen a sports attorney. brianen brian, the language in the report is not definitive, uses phrases like more than often, more often than not, most likely more probably. critics of the report are questioning the credibility here. you're a lawyer how strong or conclusive is this report? >> hey, ana, by the way, thanks for having me back. i want to amend that report to say that it should read that it is conclusive not more probable than not. these text messages between
9:32 am
mcnally and the other gentleman, the equipment manager, clearly proves that tom brady knew exactly what was going on with deflating the footballs. why is ted wells trying to be politically correct here? that's the first problem. the second problem here is what a shame in how tom brady and the new england patriots handled this debacle. brady should have stepped up and said look i made a mistake, and i want to fix it and i'm sorry for that because the biggest losers in all of this are the kids worldwide. the youth that look up to idols like tom brady who now see that it's okay to cheat and that's why the nfl has to suspend tom brady, for at least a half season or a full season. so we can send a message to the kids across the country that if you cheat, you will suffer consequences. >> tim, i see you shaking your head. i want to bring you into the conversation. let's expand it a little bit
9:33 am
because, as brian pointed out, a lot of people are pointing the finger at tom brady saying he cheated but not only is he accused of cheating but accused of not cooperating with the investigation, a lot of the evidence came from the text messages from interviews with the two patriots employees who are believed to be most culpable but tom brady refused to give over his e-mails. what do you make of this? >> i think a player has a responsibility to cooperate with the investigation, that's a rule nfl commissioner can suspend you, and punishment is dependent on your cooperation. a six-game suspension is crazy in this case. >> too much? >> way too much. tom brady is the ambassador of the nfl and to say that he tells these equipment managers yeah i like the balls inflated lower, you have to remember there's a range the ball can go above and below. he didn't say below the limits the fact that he likes that tom brady wasn't in the locker room with a needle before the game
9:34 am
deflating them. this report has some genuine conclusions that are based on speculation. >> tom brady may not have been in the locker room but, according to this report tom brady was giving these guys a special autographed equipment and there's certainly seemed to good incentive for the two locker room attendants to deflate the balls for tom brady. >> i agree that the patriots themselves including these employees, can be punished and should be punished. integrity of the game is in jeopardy. while they were doing things that the quarterback likes or wants you kailash satyarthi can't say tom brady said do it like it and the text may shed light, brady shouldn't have spoken or texted but he followed advice of his agent, and that was, wait until you get all of the information, when you get the information, if the commission will take action and he's in a tough situation
9:35 am
because he has lowered the burden. it's only more probable than not. the burden used to be much higher. once that penalty if a penalty comes out, i would imagine that the team will possibly be punished those employees will be punished possibly terminated and they may lose a draft pick i'm would not see brady getting anything more than maybe two-game suspension. >> brian, you know the nfl, the commissioner roger goodell has come under a lot of fire in the year first the domestic violence issue that came up. >> right. >> then there was of course the con concussion report and now this and the super bowl. how much pressure do you think the nfl commissioner is under to come down hard with punishment in this case because of all of these factors that come in to play? >> ana, this is a cross road for goodell and the nfl because you know roomer has it out here if
9:36 am
the nfl was going to set up a store, it would be called scandals r us instead of toys "r" us because they have had so many scandals over the last year and a half, bountygate, adrian peterson and ray rice. this incident with tom brady, anna in my opinion, is bigger than football and that's why goodell has to step up and pose a greater penalty here because this is about the moral fiber of our community, about the moral fiber of kids growing up. it's bigger than you and i, you played sports in college, you know how important it is to live by the rules. and goodell has to penalize tom brady. make no mistake about it ana, this is like a james bond movie. mcnally had the balls, he ran into the rest room had 100 seconds to deflate the footballs
9:37 am
and you tell me that tom brady didn't know exactly what he was doing? he did. he gained an unfair advantage. he needs to suffer the consequences. >> last word tim? >> i think everybody's focusing on tom brady, and it shouldn't be on tom brady. it should be on the nfl, the officials who should control those balls, and the fact that if he gained an advantage, every player in sports wants an advantage, pitchers are always try to scuff balls. we had a previous minnesota game where they were heating balls with jet engines on the sidelines and they were told to stop. because it's tom brady and the patriots it's blown up. let's get back to reality. >> they don't have a squeaky clean image. >> the team doesn't but tom brady does. tom brady has been the ambassador for the sport, he's lived by every standard the nfl has ever established. >> we'll have to leave it there, brian, tim, thank you both so much. we appreciate the conversation. >> thanks, ana. live to egypt.

it's a big weekend for the presidential hopefuls. while jeb bush has yet to announce he's running for president, he sounded like a candidate. the former florida governor delivered the commencement address in virginia at liberty university and made this appeal to christian conservative voters. listen. >> this doesn't always come as a welcome reminder in some quarters but it is true all the same whatever the need the affliction or the injustice, there is no more powerful or liberating influence on this earth than the christian conscience in action. >> he is not the only big gop name in the spotlight this weekend. many gop presidential contenders are in south carolina right now for a freedom summit that's sponsored by citizens united. chris moody is there, joining us now. chris, jeb bush is courting evangelicals in virginia instead
9:52 am
of heading to that summit, what's the strategy here? >> reporter: well if you're a republican presidential hopeful and you get an invitation to speak at liberty university especially the commencement you take it there's a history of presidents and presidential contenders speaking at that commencement. ted cruz announced his presidential campaign there the largest evangelical college in the nation and a great opportunity for contenders to speak to that audience. he is missing this big summit here in south carolina wirhich is the first primary in the south. his soon-to-be campaign made the calculation that he would go to virginia and stand alone there instead of sharing the spotlight with other contenders and possible contenders. >> we know iowa and new hampshire have been getting a lot of attention lately. i think you just touched on this but tell us more why south carolina is pivotal in what the potential candidates are saying down there. >> reporter: it is an important
9:53 am
part of the puzzle. like i mentioned earlier, the first primary in the south, it's a lot more conversation, generally, than a lot of the other states particularly new hampshire and it's an opportunity for candidates especially conservative ones who may not have done so well in iowa and new hampshire to really get a fresh gust of wind. they can come in here and it's really a gateway for the second half of the primary -- the next level of the primary. it's an opportunity especially if they did not do well earlier. what we're seeing in the speeches red meat talking about their faith and personal stories. and, of course as any politician likes to say, humble beginnings as well. >> seeing any one candidate getting support among south carolina residents and voters? >> well there's a lot of energy right now for many of these guys. rick perry gave a real red meat speech a few minutes ago here inside a big reaction scott walker as well. talking a lot about his conservative accomplishments in

9:55 am
it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face lips, tongue or throat fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take
9:56 am
and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans. there is an ancient rhythm...

welcome back. crews are still investigating a plane crash on a busy atlanta freeway yesterday, all four people on board died. but cnn's martin savidge says it's nearly a miracle nobody on the ground was hurt. [ [ bleep ] ] >> plane crashed on the parkway in front of us. >> reporter: the crash of the single engine plane i-285 north of atlanta came just as rush hour was ending. hundreds witnessed its orrer. >> no a plane crash! >> reporter: the just-fueled plane slammed into a cement median burst into flame, sending thick, black smoke into the air. all four people on board were killed. >> i saw it coming. >> reporter: the piper 32 had taken off moments before from de kalb peach tree county airport a mile away. witnesses say it showed signs of trouble while still in the air. >> this plane's low, and as i'm looking at the plane, the plane is trying to pull up pull up and then boom! >> reporter: drivers swerved and
9:59 am
braked to avoid the disaster. gerald smith's semi was one of two vehicles hit by debris. >> if i would have stayed on the gas, i would have met it head-on, and it probably would have killed me. >> reporter: fortunately, no one on the ground was hurt. >> it is quite remarkable considering the fact 285, around that time in the morning, that it was not any more tragic than what it already is. >> reporter: authorities say those killed in the plane, include the pilot, 53-year-old greg byrd his two sons 27-year-old christopher, and 25-year-old phillip. and christopher's fiancee, jackie. the four headed to the university of mississippi for graduation ceremonies this weekend. the small plane had no black box recorders. >> i'm going to look at the maintenance that was last done on the aircraft. from what we understand the airplane just fueled at -- over at peach tree de kalb and the pilot's experience. >> reporter: i-285 reopened friday afternoon, but the scars
10:00 am
of the tragedy remain both on the highway in in the minds of the many who saw it. martin savidge, cnn, georgia. we have much more just ahead in "newsroom" and it all starts right now. happening now in "newsroom" dozens of prisoners and terror suspects break out of prison of the isis is claiming responsibility. and homegrown terror concerns have u.s. military bases across the country on heightened alert today. the fbi now investigating hundreds of suspected isis sympathizers. plus -- massive hail tornadoes, flooding thousands without power today, as more dangerous storms are forming in the plains. you're live in the "cnn newsroom."

hello, thanks so much for keep me company. i'm ana cabrera, in for fred this weekend. the united states calling missile tests by north korea a clear violation of several united nations security council resolutions. it's also calling on that country to refrain from any actions that inflame tensions in that region. our kathy novak has details. >> reporter: well north korea has fired three ship-to-ship missiles into the sea off north korea. that's according to the south korean defense ministry. it follows release of photos showing the north korea leader kim jong-un watching over the successful lawnunch of ballistic missiles of the sea into the sky. cnn cannot independently confirm authenticity of the photos but kim jong-un praised it as a miraculous achievement, and warned it was a time bomb on the backs of north korea's enemies. cnn reached out to the south
10:02 am
korea government for a comment on photos and so far they have not said anything about whether or not they think that these photos represent a true test and a successful one at that. but, if these photos are authentic, they would represent a significant development in the capabilities of north korea's military. we know that kim jong-un had been wanting this kind of technology for some time and it's likely to cause concern right here in south korea and further in the region. kathy novak, cnn. the pentagon has raised the threat level at all u.s. military bases. it now stands at threat level bravo. here's what this means. it means an increase and more predictable threat of terrorism in the united states. cnn's sunlen serfaty is at the white house and joining us live now. why the sudden move by the pentagon? >> reporter: well officials say that there was a number of recent concerns that when all pulled in together really contributed to make the decision for them to increase the threat
10:03 am
level at military bases. one official telling cnn that it just seemed like the temperature had gone up. >> reporter: with concerns growing over isis-inspired attacks carried out inside the u.s. the pentagon put all u.s. military bases nationwide on heightened alert. a threat level raised to bravo, due to an increased and predictable threat of terrorism, according to the pentagon. the concern, isis could target uniformed military and law enforcement. security will be beefed up at all military bases, national guard installations and recruiting stations across the country. adding according to the military's order, an element of unpredicability, surprise and random measures into the regular security procedures. former cia official phil mudd says it's part of a change in who terrorists like isis target. >> what they're saying is there are people in the united states
10:04 am
who are responsible for projecting american power overseas. because they're projecting american power overseas and killing us in places like iraq and yemen, they are legitimate targets. >> reporter: u.s. officials say the heightened level is not tied to a spec credible threat but a number of recent concerns contributed to the decision. the shooting in texas this week highlighting the threat from isis supporters and after personal information names and home addresses of about 100 military personnel were posted online by isis affiliated accounts last month. increasingly isis has been using social media to reach out and recruit people in the u.s. >> really is an expansion how the internet has been used frankly, for several years now, both in recruitment and radicalization of young people to join terrorist groups. >> reporter: the fbi director warning, there are hundreds maybe thousands, of isis followers online inside the
10:05 am
u.s. saying it's almost if there's a devil sitting on the shoulder saying kill, kill kill kill all day long. >> the fbi is boosting up their monitoring of suspected isis supporters inside the u.s. that follows after it was revealed that one of the gunmen in sunday's texas attack had direct encrypted communication with an isis recruiter. meanwhile, on friday the fbi director and the security -- secretary of homeland security held a secure conference call with state and local law enforcement officials to try to get them to step up their efforts to combat isis. ana? >> sunlen serfaty at the white house. thank you. we also have breaking news out of iraq. we are following a major prison break that happened just a few hours ago outside of baghdad. some 40 inmates have now escaped, 9 of those prisoners facing terror charges according to iraqi authority and what could be more troubling, isis is now claiming responsibility for this prison break.
10:06 am
i want to bring in senior international correspondent nick paton walsh who is following the story from beirut for us. nick what do we know about those who escaped? >> reporter: very little at this stage. as you pointed out, nine fashion terror offenses a number of them according to the isis statement, they released responsibility facing the death penalty as well. that may explain it seems, the level of resources isis are willing to throw at this one jail to the north of baghdad. in an area which the iraqi government has for a month now at least said is under their control. projection of isis power into what should be an iraqi security forces stronghold here. their statement, and it doesn't tally necessarily with official accounts we're reading, which suggests in fact disturbance inside the jail a rise began the jail break. the isis account says this perhaps was precipitated by 15 ieds detonated around the jail
10:07 am
hitting military and security vehicles allowed that chaos to slip and isis to get out 30 of their knights, as a total of 40 is suggested. they may have escaped in this nine facing terror offenses. iraqi officials trying to map out who they've lost a grip on. this harkes back to early isis tactics. one of their first big moves in iraq was to launch a massive jail break in abu ghraib that notorious prison on the outskirts of baghdad. from that hundreds of former islamic states in iraq militants, escaped. that gave a significant boost to extremist man power in both iraq and syria. this could perhaps have some impact. numbers are comparatively small but it does show isis keeg for a win willing to throw resources at something like this. perhaps they wanted propaganda potential for success here or maybe somebody in that jail they really wanted to see out. >> nick you mentioned the ieds that exploded and the prison
10:08 am
break and how many people were involved in all of that and guards who were killed. i can only imagine the scene of chaos that's happening on the ground there. do you know if there's an active manhunt under way for prisoners? >> reporter: obviously, iraqi officials want to get the prisoners back. when we have seen jail breaks, the fellows after, people are too busy trying to stop the actual gunfire, explosions themselves rather than to begin the active motion of main hunt. iraq where there is a limited amount of time the government can do in certain areas, run by the militants and of course given how close isis comparatively are to that area you can imagine a manhunt's going to be difficult, if not verging on impossible at this stage. >> nick paton walsh, thanks so much. appreciate you staying on top of it. joinings now to discuss more is cnn military analyst, lieutenant
10:09 am
general mark hurtly former commanding general in the u.s. army. isis was supposed to be cleared out of the area respect they trying to make a point here they can still make strategic moves? >> well, i wouldn't jump to conclusions yet, ana. this is interesting i heard nick's report. i've been to the prisz prison where this occurred it's about ten kilometers north of the provincial capital of diyalah province. that's a mixed shia/sunni province. don't think of a major jail. it's equivalent of a back woods county lockup. they normally have 300 prisoners, overcrowded, third world nation type prison then mix terrorists with others. first reports isis is claiming this but there are other reports from the iraqi government saying no no this was a normal prison break. truthfully having spent three years of my life in northern iraq i will tell you that
10:10 am
prison breaks are a regular occurrence. so i wouldn't suggest just yet that this is isis-inspired or isis assisted. this could simply be a riot in the prison where a bun.ch of people escaped. isis wants to put their stamp on this to prove they're causing kay cross in the country. this is an area that the iraqi government has said is now more secure they've taken background in diyalah province because it's a mixed shia/sunni area there's a peaceful airport there's inner marriages and it's not the sectarian violence we've seen in the past. this will be an interesting story to watch to see exactly what did happen here. i'm not buying this was an isis-inspired prison break yet. >> i hear what you're saying not jumping to conclusions whether isis coordinated this attack. if you were a commander in this area what would your threat
10:11 am
assessment be on nine prisoners who are reportedly connected to terrorists and terrorism in general? i mean they have to be pretty dangerous guys right? >> no absolutely. and that's the concerning part of this. again, i go back though. this is a county -- the equivalent of a county lockup not well secured. you're going to have a combination of terrorists and petty thieves and all sorts of other characters in here. if there were nine isis knights, as they call them in this particular break it could be concerning. or they're just looking to get friends out of there. there's no indication yet they had high-level prisoners there, certainly any high-level prisoners would be interrogated at other facilities. so yeah it concerns me that this break did occur, that isis is claiming victory. there would certainly be isis fighters in this prison because this was one of the many areas that the iraqi security forces has attempted to clear. so i think we need to let this one develop a little bit more
10:12 am

quite a bit of destruction there. how are people coping with the loss while bracing for more? >> reporter: well that's a great question because we're hearing stories of survival. you can see all around the destruction, the people here tell us this storm hit so quick, they barely had a chance to react. look at the front of this extended stay and you can see the destruction. i mean parts of this building hanging off themselves. you can just see how the power, all of the windows are blown out here. we were talking to this family over here about the idea that they had no warning before the storm hit. you were telling me you were inside with the kids and what happened next? >> we were inside with the kids and heard what sounded like a freight train. i knew we were -- it was fixing to hit us. i shoved em in the bathtub, my fiancee put a mattress over me held us down held the door shut so we wouldn't blow away. >> reporter: you were happy to come back and see this guy made it? >> yeah. she survived five days in rubble and made it through.
10:17 am
she's perfectly unharmed. >> reporter: got to be happy with the fact the little ones look not only okay but everybody able to make it out? >> everybody made it out. we were ex-stat to find she made it through as well. >> reporter: talk about the noise, when that storm was hitting you look at front of this building and it's just torn apart. >> it sounds like a freight train with no horn. the rumble of a train going by and that's exactly what it sounded like. >> reporter: walk me to the front door. you were here and what did you hear? >> we heard a low rumble and then all of a sudden our glass shattered, and i shove made two kids in bathroom. >> reporter: that's when you hear glass shatter that must have been the scariest part. >> yeah. i didn't know if we were going to make it out or not. the ceiling, all of the insulation came down they're waiting for my kids and fiancee, we probably wouldn't have made it out. this is what's left of the room.
10:18 am

being killed by police officers our unarmed children. we're demanding the department of justice and president obama hear our voices to make the necessary changes to stop the killings. >> i hear what you're saying. i know other organizers have said that this is all about calling an end to brutal police practices and racist vigilantes. do you believe the core issue here is racism? >> i think it is. when we look at how disproportionately our african-american children are being murdered by the police it sends a huge message. >> i think you probably had some feedback from how much noise there is back there. of course we're dealing with a little bit of a delay as well. let me ask you to broad. the conversation, as we've covered a number of controversial police conversations -- confrontations
10:25 am
i should say, in the past several months. really all around the country from ferguson missouri to new york with eric gardner's case to the most recent case of course in baltimore. do you think freddie gray's death in baltimore has been a turning point now in this campaign to enact policing reforms? >> that is our prayer that this is the straw that broke the camel's back that people are hearing. us. i don't think it's freddie grays, i think eric gardners michael browns trayvon martins and now freddie gray we're saying enough is enough our voices need to be heard. >> what do you say to people who say, look police officers are in a really tough position they patrol very high crime areas where their lives are on the line. we just saw a police officer shot and killed in new york in the past week. it's so tragic some will say, when a confrontation has a deadly result but it may not necessarily be criminal on the
10:26 am
part of the officer. what do you say to some of those people? >> well i would say to some of those people you say in high crime areas, these killings are not just happening in high crime areas. my son was killed in prince george's county where there's little crime, at least in the area where we lived. for it to be said that it's the high crime areas, i would disagree with that. and i am very unfortunate for that officer's death but people are tired. unless the president comes in and makes an executive order, we will see more of this. we're sending our troops into other countries to bring peace. we need peace with the police departments and law enforcement officers across this country here in the united states of america. >> i think everybody can agree with that sentiment of peace. that's what we all want. marion gray hopkins, thank you so much. >> baltimore's prosecutor says six officers broke the law but the officers charged in the death of freddie gray want her

[sfx: yeti noise] ♪ we are farmers bum - pa - dum bum - bum - bum - bum ♪ hl low, thank you for being here. i'm ana cabrera. glad to have you with us on this saturday. talk more about what's happening in baltimore. the six police officers cld in death of freddie gray are calling for the prosecutor in this case now to be removed, as
10:31 am
their attorneys are asking the court to dismiss baltimore prosecutor marilyn mosby, claiming conflict of interest. cnn's sara sidner is on the story, joining us live from baltimore. you've been there, you've been watching things as they've been developing. yesterday we heard the u.s. attorney general announce a justice department probe of this entire police department. a lot of moving parts in that city. >> reporter: there are. and today we're standing at baltimore city community college where there is a be more youth rise rally going on in the building just to the right of me. and you know they're talking about a lot of these different issues but mostly talking about how they feel that they're mistreated by police. they want to do something about that. let's talk a little bit about what the attorneys for the six officers are saying and they're saying that there is a conflict of interest for the state's attorney the chief prosecutor marilyn mosby, to go forward with the case not just her but her office in general.
10:32 am
they list five different things. they list the relationship with her husband, nick is also nick mosby is a councilman over the district where freddie gray was killed. the idea there being that for political gain putting these charges out front when his constituents wanted to see this and going forward, trying to get a conviction would help him politically. there's also an allegation about her relationship with the attorney that is now representing the gray family and who will be representing the gray family throughout this case. there's also an allegation about her relationship potential relationship with potential witnesses in this case a civil lawsuit that has gone up against her department. so there are a lot of things being talked about. but this is a typical thing that a good defense attorney's going to do they're going to look at this trying to get her to be pulled off of this case saying it's a political powder keg. we'll have to see what happens. it's 109-page document that's
10:33 am
been submitted to the courts and obviously she's going to have to respond or her department is going to have to response. he's already responded to i a couple of these, allegation she's too close to the attorney that's representing the gray family and the allegation that she can't properly represent the state's interests when her husband is a council member of the area where gray died. here's how she responded to those two alleged -- allegations of conflict. >> absolutely. >> i mean as i said before he makes the laws i enforce them. there's no conflict of interest. i'm going to prosecutor i'm the baltimore city state's attorney. my jurisdiction covers every district in baltimore city. there's a number of crimes that take place in baltimore city and unfortunately in the district that we live. where is the conflict? i have to take myself away from every case or crime that takes place in west baltimore? that makes absolutely no sense. >> reporter: and she's making the point they also live in west
10:34 am
baltimore. they live in the neighborhood. they bought there, built there, rebuilt a home there, and they're part of the community. she feels like there is absolutely no conflict. she knows a lot of dinfferent people in the community as she should as chief prosecutor. talking about going forward the department of justice is looking at the police department itself top to bottom looking at patterns and practices very similar to what they did in ferguson missouri after the death of michael brown. >> sara sidner in baltimore for us thank you. joining me here in atlanta to talk more about in this cnn legal analyst and defense attorney phillip holloway. also with us in baltimore, justin george writer for the baltimore sun, a paper that is given special access to the police task force investigating gray's death. so thanks to both of you for joining me. first, phillip, let's talk a little bit about what we just heard from sara sidner's report about this new motion by the attorneys of these six police officers to try to get the
10:35 am
prosecutor in this case off the case. how likely is it that their motion to remove her will succeed? >> it might have some teeth to. it's very unusual but prosecutors, ana, have a special and unique ethical obligation in criminal cases essentially, their obligation is to do justice. that's not necessarily the obligation of all lawyer but was unique to prosecutors and it can mean many things but it means a lot, among other things they don't engage in conflicts of interest and don't pursue political prosecutions and this one, a lot of people think, is a political prosecution. they believe that she has some conflicts of interests. that is the genesis of this that's what this complaint is all about and it will have to play out in the courtroom and the judge will be the decision maker. >> justin so much of the controversy surrounding the confrontation with freddie gray and these police officers come from the fact that a lot have said there was no probable cause for them to make an arrest in the first place. what more are you learning about
10:36 am
that initial interaction and the reason that freddie gray perhaps was running? >> well we still don't know exactly why he was running. police had -- they believed they had reasonable suspicion to stop him because it was a high sort of drug area and he was running. once they did stop him, they frisked him, and there was a knife on him. now that knife has been a point of contention. police say that it is spring-assisted and violates a baltimore city law whale the state's attorney says that the knife is perfectly legal and it's not an illegal switch blade. an illegal switch blade is illegal according to maryland law which pops open with a spring and some sort of button. phillip, some have argued that this knife and whether it was a legal knife or not, lal is a moot point because if there was no probable cause necessarily to even approach him, you know forget about the
10:37 am
knife to begin with. but a supreme court ruling states that officers who are patrolling these high crime areas are allowed to pursue someone who is fleeing. so do you think that the officersofficer officers' attorneys will be able to fall back on that 2000 ruling. >> at least with respect to the two officers who started the foot chase. they may have a defense baseed on that case from 2000 but a case hind versus north carolina decided in just december of last year. what hinds stands for is proposition if police are mistaken about the legality of that knife if they're acting in good faith, then the arrest is still legal and the probable cause is valid. so if the arrest is valid, their charges are not valid. ironically you could make the argument in that case that it's the prosecutor who has falsely imprisoned two bike patrol officers. >> i want to ask you specifically about the charges
10:38 am
because one of the charges is second-degree murder. the prosecutor would have to prove that one of the these officers intended to kill freddie gray right. >> what i was referring to was the two officers who got this started, started the foot chase and ultimately arrested him. the remaining officers responsible for his care once placed in custody in that van, this particular type of defense will not apply to them. their credible liability will depend on how willful their misconduct might have been. >> phillip and justin, thank you so much for joining us today. another case that has a lot of people talking this morning, he went missing back in 1979. he was one of the first kids to appear on the back of milk cartons, and all of these years later, etan patz's murder case ends in a mistrial. we'll have a live report, next.
10:39 am
10:40 am
across america people, like basketball hall of famer dominique wilkins, are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills and comes in a pen. victoza is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. and the needle is thin. victoza is not for weight loss but it may help you lose some weight. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise.
10:41 am
it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face lips, tongue or throat fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines
10:42 am
you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans. a single juror caused a mistrial in the case involving the disappearance of little 6-year-old etan patz. remember he is the little boy who disappeared while walking to school back in 1979. he became a poster child of mit missing children one of the first to appear on the back of milting cartons. pedro hernandez confessed three years ago but a body's never been found. let's go to rosa florez in new york following this story.
10:43 am
what's hard to believe there was a confession but no conviction. >> reporter: you know it's just agonizing for this family, ana. think about it first of all, this boy goes missing, so the family looking for him frantically, never giving up. and then hearing from police that pedro hernandez allegedly lured him into the basement in new york and then killed him and disposed of his body, and then not finding any sort of resolution to this case again because of what you mentioned, because of one juror in this particular case juror number 11 that we know goes by the name adam. here's what we've learned from this juror. he says that there was just not enough evidence for him to convict, that everything was circumstantial and we know why that is because there's never been a body found, no physical evidence has ever been found. so this particular juror said that he just couldn't do it
10:44 am
that he could not convict without more evidence. and he also mentioned the mental illness that mr. pedro hernandez has. here what happens he said about a confession that he made. >> for me his confession was very bizarre, no matter how many times it happened it got more and more bizarre. and i feel that the initial confession there were lots of issues surrounding custody, surrounding miranda rights surrounding the fact that it wasn't videoed for six or seven hours, and i just -- i felt -- i felt like mental health issues were a huge part of this case. >> reporter: that was part of the defense. the defense making the point this man had a mental illness, had a mental disorder he was not keen and cunning and couldn't have done this heinous crime. now, again, because this is a mistrial now there's a court hearing on june 10th to set a
10:45 am
new date for another trial. ana, it's just the agony continues for this family as they continue to go through these motions knowing and hoping quite frankly in their heart, at some point that boy walks in the door. >> i know your heart is heavy for those family members. thank you. coming up -- why is jeb bush courting evangelicals in virginia today? easy for me to say. while the rest of the gop field is looking for voters in south carolina. we will talk strategy live from the freedom summit, next.

10:50 am
only 5%. a quarter of the voters there say they definitely would not support bush. that news has not stopped him from trying to sure up his conserveative support. he delivered the commencement address today in virginia. he compared himself to the university's president. >> today was my first time to be able to meet with pastor jonathan. he has a unique place here at liberty because among other reasons, here at this university his dad used to be president. then his brother became president somehow i don't know what it was we really hit it off. i'm not sure what's in store for you jonathan but i'm pulling for you, man. >> he's not the only big gop name in this spotlight this weekend. many gop presidential contenders
10:51 am
are in south carolina. there's a freedom convention there. what do you think is the strategy behind him waiting to jump into the race? >> reporter: it is strategic. a lot of it has to do with fund raising. as a non-candidate he can be intricately involved this the fund raising apparatuses that have set up. he can be a chairman. he can play an active role and play a ton of cash that has no limits on how much they can raise from donors. the minute he announces, he has to take by law, a more hands off approach. he can appear at more fund raisers but can't ask for money.
10:52 am
having the bush name he knows he can wait a lot longer. he has that luxury. >> all these candidates are there in south carolina fighting for attention. give us some of the highlights of what you have seen and heard. >> reporter: there's a lot of attention on iowa and on new hampshire. south carolina is the first primary in the south. it offers a breath of fresh life. it allows them if you make it through new hampshire you can go on to the second section of the race. what we're hearing here a lot of red meat speeches. we have thousands of conservative activists hearing the candidates and possible candidates line up one after the other and talk about themselves and how they will or somebody
10:53 am

11:05 am
what was an underwater launch from a submarine last night. the u.s. is calling those north korean launches a clear violation of several united security council resolutions. has it been confirmed now? >> reporter: they hasn't confirmed that. they are doing so without confirming out right these reports of these new missile tests by north korea. only saying they're aware of the reports and noting broadly speaking if true it would be in violation of multiple u.n. security council resolutions. we call on north korea to refrain from actions that further raise tensions in the region and focus on taking concrete steps toward fulfilling its international commitment and obligation. all this comes as there's growing around about the size of
11:06 am
north korea's nuclear program. there's suspicions that they're leader might be taking steps to ramp up the neekuclear arsenal. the big question looming out there is what they intend to potentially do once they reach this technology. back to you. >> if, indeed, north korea is in violation of several u.n. security council resolutions as you mentioned, what can be done if anything? >> reporter: that's the great question. to put it simply there's not much the u.s. can do at this point. they haven't had a lot of sway with north korea in the past. they views the united states as an enemy. the other big question is why doesn't the u.s. sit down and try to negotiate about drawing down the nuclear facilities like they are doing right now with iran. u.s. officials tell cnn they are open to having a dialogue with
11:07 am
north korea about this as long as the north koreans show a commitment to drawing down and that's a commitment that they say they have not demonstrated yet. >> all right. thank you. former egyptian president could soon be a free man. the 87-year-old has been in prison on corruption charges for the past three years. now an appeals court says he will get credit for time served. he controlled egypt for 30 years before he was overthrown in that 2011 egyptian revolution. in his first trial he was sentenced to life in prison. a new trial was granted and then he was only given a three years sentence. it's still not clear when he will be released from prison. the pentagon raising the threat level of all u.s. military bases. it now stands at threat level bravo. that means there's an increase and more predictable threat of terrorism. this follows growing concern over isis' use of social media

11:45 am
she was getting desperate. he discovered one more option. a drug sometimes used to help bring people out of anesthesia. two years ago danielle became only the second person in the united states to get the drug for hypersomnia. insignificanttantly it was a game changer. >> within 15 minutes of placing the tablets under my tongue that wall that i felt like i lived with in my brain my entire life was just gone. it crumbled. i was able to think clearly and communicate and talk and hold a conversation with somebody without having to look at them. it was incredible. it actually made me feel for the first time like i was alive. for glen finding how to live with his sleep disorder has been about finding balance. he spends more than 250 days of the year on the road driving day

11:55 am
the pap therapy device. there's an improvement so there's good news that has accompanied the weight loss. >> although there is a need to continue the c-pap, it's still good news because i know how important as a driver that i get good sleep care. >> even though the results weren't exactly what he hoped, his positive attitude still shines through. it's something i've seen in him time after time and it's key to any healthy lifestyle change. >> when they told you you needed a machine, was that hard news? was it a defeat for you? >> it wasn't. i was getting to get better. i wanted to be treated especially after i got the level of sleep i got. where's that machine? give it here. i welcomed it with open arms. >> what's the goal ultimately?
11:56 am
do you want to get off of it? >> ultimately i want to get off of it. if it is associated with the weight i will get off of it. >> as glen and i both learned in our sleep study it's time to start taking sleep seriously. wearable technology and our smart phones are one way to start tracking how much and how well we sleep. remember sleep just as important as your diet and exercise. in fact if you only have one free hour in day and you got to choose between a nap or exercise pick the nap. give yourself that chance to heal and your body will thank you for it. for vital signs, i'm dr. sanjay gupta.
