tv   Legal View With Ashleigh Banfield  CNN  August 25, 2015 9:00am-10:01am PDT

9:00 am
which is not easy. >> reporter: and then the home stretch. passing one chained up manhole cover and making their way to the next one. the very same manhole richard matt and david sweat emerged from. kicking off a three-week manhunt. randi kaye, cnn, new york. >> just amazing. thank you so much for joining us at this hour. legal view with ashleigh ban field starts right now. i'm ashleigh banfield. we have breaking news from paris where just minutes ago authorities laid out the details, the drama and the criminal charges that are arising from last week's attempted massacre on a high speed passenger train. the prosecutor says there is "clear evidence" of terrorist
9:01 am
intent on the part of ayoub el khazzani who was stopped and subdued and hog tied by fellow passengers before he could do any murders. in the prosecutors' words, murders of a trainful of people. joining us is making weiss, cnn contributor and co-author of isis, inside the army of terror. i think a lot of people watch ing are saying the prosecutor is being official now. but they were thinking it beforehand. why do you think they're being official in their language? >> well, they'll have wanted to see this man's movements. there was speculation he had gone to syria and he fits the trench terrorism profile. north african descent boarding a train with an ak-47 and a box cutter.
9:02 am
you would be hard pressed to think this was some kind of thug. there has to be an ideological motivation. indeed, it's worth remembering belgium in january of this year busted up a -- as many as 20 sleeper cells of pro-isis terrorists who were running around belgium. these guys, the belgian intelligence services accused of plotting terrorism attacks in france, in the netherland, in germany. >> so, michael, let me jump in because i want to give you details just coming to us. this has been coming to us via video from a press conference lives in paris. the prosecutor said he was looking at jihadi sites even while he was on the train in fact, let me hold for a moment as we put up this graphic with brach ground, i want to go live to martin savidge who's been collecting the details from the press conference and the
9:03 am
prosecutor. martin, if you can hear me, tell me what it is they have in terms of him making direct contact with jihadi sites during and before this incident. >> according to the prosecutor at least the press conference that was given they're tracking the cell phone and they could see he was going to these web sites. now, what he said was they went to youtube and that at youtube he apparently was looking at videos that had a jihadist radicalist nature to them it was music and inspirational versus so that a s what he's throng while inside the bathroom of the train car between coaches 12 and 13 before he comes out shirtless armed to the teeth and begins his attempted assault. >> so martin there's also this notion -- and i'm going to quote with what they're getting -- that apparently khazzani was
9:04 am
looking at whilst he was on the train youtube jihadi songs and someone inspiring people to jihadi acts like you said on his phone via the internet. do they know about that or what they were able to get from the facebook page. >> well, they've looked at it and they won't say much about it. >> go ahead, martin, we had a bugaboo in the signal. i can hear you but can't see you. but go ahead, it's important what you're saying. >> exactly. so what they said is there is a facebook account that they believe belongs to the suspect. it has since been taken down as of 25august 21, the date of the attack. they won't reveal what is on there but it implies there's something they see posted in there or perhaps looking at his history or photographs that suggest to them that there is
9:05 am
some kind of connection to a terrorist organization, thence charge. >> i want to bring in michael weiss and i want to play the devils advocate. if i'm getti if i if i'm thinking about "charlie hebdo," i might look to that to see if there's traffic. total devil's advocate. so with language we're hear, clear evidence of terrorist intent i'm wondering mikele with your background do you think they have more than they're sharing? >> absolutely. you can say the average passenger because he's following the news might be inclined to want to look up jihadi videos or sermons on youtube. i think that's a bit of a stretch. it sounds like he was looking for spiritual or ideological prompting prior to doing what he assumes was going to be a martyrdom operation. he was looking to kill as many
9:06 am
people as possible. i don't think he thought he was going to get away from that train alive had he been successful. so this has all of the hallmarks of a classic jihadist operation. the french are taking this as serious as they ought to do. they've interrogated him. the fact his facebook page has been taken down, they're trying to track if this was a so-called loan wolf attack or had any affiliation with known jihadist cells or actors, either, in europe or abroad. so i think is what you and i and every viewer suspects is indeed the case. >> to a lot of people that breaking news doesn't seem like a big headline but it is when the prosecutors use that language and are going to file charges accordingly it makes a world of difference. thank you so much michael weiss. also, martin, i'm sorry it was so difficult but we got you up and back and i can see you and i appreciate the work you've done.
9:07 am
thanks both of you. appreciate it. i want to move on to that other big unsettling story. if you've been afraid to look at the stock market, fear not. well, maybe i shouldn't say that so soon because we're still in tuesday. monday may be over and markets outside china are in the rebound. the dow soaring, up 347. don't forget, we were down a thousand yesterday and then it closed down closer to 600 so these numbers are, well, you can pretty much say we're not completely back. alison kosik joins me live from the new york stock exchange. i'm a little surprised that i'm hearing so much news about we're rebounding, we're rebounding. i don't see this as completely rebounding but i guess taken in context of what happened yesterday, put in the perspective for me. >> when you talk about the thousand point drop at the open yesterday, 348-point gain today seems like it's a great thing but, yeah, when you look at in the the broader sense, the dow over the past several days has
9:08 am
lost upwards of a thousand, 1500 points total so, yes, the dow has a long way to go. the mood here very different, though, from yesterday. the hustle bustle we're seeing today different from the frays nerved yesterday. one person telling me when he saw that point drop of over a thousand points, he almost passed out. yes it's calmer today, still volatile. even though we here in the green it's choppy trading meaning it's zigzagging here and there. what you're seeing, ashleigh, is this continuation of a resetting of prices to match the global environment. investors are trying to figure out what prices stocks should be at. >> so allison, if anybody was up and watching the open, we got to the numbers where we are right now. we got to this number really fast so here we've been
9:09 am
jockeying around the 300 positi position. is this where we're stuck or could we plummet again? obviously anything can happen but what's the prevailing wisdom where you are? >> the good news is it looks like these gains are sticking and the sentiment is they probably l stick through to the close. what happens that have? that's anyone's guess. the good something this is what's considered a natural bounceback after seeing let's take the dow, for example, and the s&p just getting crushed over the past several days so this is a natural bounceback. also there's been renewed confidence coming back to the market because of some policy moves that the chinese government made. but some say we did hit a correction, others say we didn't necessarily hit a correction and others say we could still correct again later this week. it's a very volatile time. things look great now. we're seeing greener pastures, literally, at the moment with
9:10 am
green arrows but once again this is a very volatile time for the market and anything could happen, ashleigh. >> china loosening up the credit. everybody's wondering if that will continue to happen with the fed coming into the fall. thank you, allison. the new york stock exchange 358 and counting. up next, police say this man, the man who gunned down a louisiana state trooper, may have been on the run from yet another killing. we're connecting the dots when we come back. also ahead, cheating spouses exposed. now we're hearing of possible suicides that could be connected to the massive data breach from the ashley madison web site. does in mean an even bigger world of hurt for the people who let that breach happen? ♪

. investigators working to connect the dots between two terrible killings. one of the victims was a louisiana state trooper and this is his picture. his name is steven vincent, the first louisiana trooper to be killed in a hostile encounter since -- get this -- 1977. in the meantime, investigators have just identified the other victim in this mystery, his name is blake brewer and they believe the guy who is accused in the killing of the trooper, his name is kevin deagle, this accused man. he may have had a fight with this second victim and this this second victim may, in fact, have been his roommate. it's all convoluted but rosa flores sorts it out.
9:15 am
>> reporter: an emotional state police colonel describes the chilling words of the alleged killer of trooper steven vincent, captured on his squad car's dash cam. >> you can hear him breathing in there and telling him "you're lucky, you're lucky. you're going to die soon." >> authorities believe 54-year-old kevin deagle killed his roommate before encountering the louisiana state trooper. >> i'm sure you're going ask the question that mr.ing day is involved in this and yes we're going to presume that. >> reporter: according to investigators, the pickup deagle was driving in was stuck in a ditch sunday. trooper vincent realized the vehicle matched the description of a reported reckless driver and started asking him about it. the suspect pulled out a shot n shotgun, shooter trooper vincent. >> i saw my trooper go backwards and back towards his unit where he was going to try to get help out there.
9:16 am
>> reporter: good samaritans like this man beat authorities to the scene. >> this is a hero right here. >> reporter: wrestling with deagle, investigators say, and subduing him with the wounded officer's handcuffs. >> me and sam handcuffed him and then we tended to the officer is. >> he was an older guy. took three men to hold him down. >> reporter: on average, a law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty every two and a half days in this country. >> the potential of death is there in everything you do because you don't know what is on the other side of that door or what will be behind the wheel of that car as you approach it. >> reporter: deagle faces first degree murder charges and authorities tell us those charges could grow as they continue to investigate the killing of his roommate. now, as for state trooper, he leaves behind a wife and a nine-year-old son. ashleigh? >> rosa flores for us. thank you for that. joining me now from baton rouge, louisiana, is colonel mike
9:17 am
edmundson, suspeperintendent ofe louisiana state police. our thoughts go out to you and your fellow officers on the loss of one of your own, especially in a sad way, where he was trying to help whomever was in that vehicle when he approached that vehicle. i just need to ask you about this new news about this other victim, blake brewer. it's such an unusual series of circumstances. this kevin deagle, this accused person, facing any kind of murder charges now in the second incident, the body of blake brewer being discovered, the roommate? >> well that's where the information is leading. it was during the interview process. we're charging him with first degree murder of a police officer so there's protocols you have to go through. and he told us he had an at kwags his roommate prior to getting into his truck and that
9:18 am
truck belonged to that roommate. that's what led us back to the house. the police had already checked that apartment, no one came to the door the sheriff's office forcibly entered the house, saw the body on the floor, saw that individual was deceased, they backed out and got a warrant so we could keep everything and keep that process. we don't want to give any reason for kevin deagle to be able to get out of jail. so we've been following a process involved in that so it's presumed both of those things are associated to him and gives a little bit of answer which we weren't looking for but gives us an answer to why his action precipitated him pulling the shut gop on louisiana state trooper steven vincent. >> but it didn't go as far as kevin deagle giving a confession about either of these two
9:19 am
killings, did it? >> that will be in the police report but we have to be very, very careful what we say, he has legal representation and we don't want to give them any ability to go further than this investigation. we'll finish ours. we'll certainly tie him to both of those and working with the sheriff's office we'll work with the district attorney in lake charles. we want to piece this together to make sure we close all ends of this case and make sure he never gets out. >> just so our viewers are clear on what happened. we have this picture that went off this screen of this line of police cars with a truck that's sort of off into the ditch and on an angle. take me through what happened at that site and how trooper vincent was trying to do something to help the driver. >> he was doing exactly what he was trained to do. we were in the vicinity that what colleague came in, there
9:20 am
was an erratic possible drunk driver in a truck in that area. it just so happens that trooper steven vincent was on l.a. 14 near bell city, louisiana. and he saw the truck in the ditch. he pulled over, no one is coming out of it so he approached the vehicle and he's talk, he's having a conversation, it's exactly as we trained him to do. you hear him say "look, we'll call a wrecker, get you out after a ditch and bring you somewhere so come out so i can talk to you." and that went on for a short period then you see the trooper at the door of the truck, the gentleman coming out of the truck and here comes a shut gon, a sawed-off shotgun. that shotgun isn't meant to scare birds, that's meant to hurt someone, that's meant to kill somebody and it was painted green so you could not see it real well. but you clearly see it come out of the truck, you see the shotgun blast and you see my trooper going backwards. i've been a state trooper 35 years. that was a horrific thing to be

9:26 am
some pretty tense moments today inside a courtroom in new hampshire where the trial of a prep school graduate accused of raping a female freshman last year is happening and apparently all of this allegedly so he could score points in a competition against the other senior boys. that is owen labrie and he has been in the courtroom for six days of trial. today the detective whoer be interviewed him has been on the stand grilled about the conversations that the detective had with owen and the conflicting stories that owen told that detective. jean casarez joins me now. we're in the prosecution's case so it always looks real bad but before the detective there was a parade of friends of owen on the stand saying indeed owen told him he had swex this girl, took
9:27 am
virginity of this girl. owen is saying he didn't have sex with her. this doesn't look good for him. >> and we are hearing what he has said. it e it's hearsay because it's the detective who interviewed him for a long, long time. and owen said "let's go to the coffee shop." the detective didn't think it was a good time but he agreed. he there's with his mother, he's 18. his mother had a note pad, his mother kept interrupting saying "he didn't do any of this." so the detective decided she had to ask a question that was absolutely shocking. >> kind of got right to the pointed a asked him if his mom knew he was trying to be number one in sexual scoring at st. paul school. >> and how did he respond? >> he glanced nervously at his mom, away from his mom, back at his mom and he said that his
9:28 am
mama didn't know that and it was very clear to me that our further conversation was not going to be conducive with his mom being there. >> so it was right at that point that owen decided, you know what? maybe we shouldn't neat this coffee shop. maybe we need to go to the police department. but here's the most telling fling what we heard from the detective, owen didn't say "no, i wasn't number one on my list." he didn't deny scoring was an important thing for him. >> he said there was never a list of girls that were alleged conquest. >> until the detective brought up the name of his good different and that's when he said, you know what? it's right. we had a list, we did make up a list of names and these were names that either they wanted to score with. >> so he lied and corrected his
9:29 am
stories. he's lied once to the detective and that's come out in open court. a jury heard he lied to a police officer and corrected himself later. >> and she confronted him. >> that's not good. >> this is what the alleged victim is saying. that you assaulted her. why would she be lying? and she said, the detective, that there were four different responses that he really didn't know why she would lie. >> that's what people think, i don't know. i don't think she'd lie, i would have been 100% sure she'd have my back but not "yes, she's a liar." jean, keep an eye on us, it yields intriguing developments. thank you, jean casarez live. up next, angry spouse, girlfriends, boyfriends aren't the only fallout from the ashley madison web site hacking. here come the lawsuits. and sadly, tragically, possibly here come the suicides.

9:34 am
after hackers exposed names, financial info and sexy, embarrassing details of millions of customers, tens of millions. joining me now, cnn money correspondent laurie segall, analyst paul callan and danny cevallos. laurie, i want to start with you. you've been digging and come up with information about these suicides. what do you know? >> i know the san antonio police captain that ended his life, he was on the site. we were able to confirm that. although it also appears he didn't use the site much. we do know that the toronto police are investigating a suicide. so we talk about, ashleigh, how this isn't a victimless crime. this is seriously not a victimless crime and we are seeing that now more than ever. let's hope there are more suicide suicides. >> we were talking about class action lawsuits that have been launched. is anybody at this point tying those lawsuits to anything other than financial damages, embarrassment, et cetera? are they tying it to the deaths?
9:35 am
>> not right now. one interesting tidbit from a texas lawsuit, they said leaked documents showed that employees actually knew that there was a technical issue that could lead to a breach so they're talking about that and in canada we're looking at $568 million in damages, they say, because of the emotional reputational and potential financial information out there. >> let me jump over to paul about the notion of tying a suicide and trying to get some kind of relief if you're the surviving family members, children, et cetera. a, can you? b, is there relief and, c, how far will that go? >> you could but it will be difficult. bear in mind, the person who committed suicide, presumably if you can link it back to the site, is doing this because he had engaged in an act of infidelity in the first place. so, of course, defense lawyers will say well, it wasn't so much if he hadn't been unfaith to feel his wife in the first place
9:36 am
none of this would have happened, you can't blame the site. but lawyers have a work around for that called class action lawsuits and what they do is they aggregate the claims and let's say hypothetically you had a jury that just gave $100 p h0 victim and ashley madison has 100 million people in their database. that's $4 billion, as much as donald trump is worth. >> do we know all of those ray r paid. there's talk about phantom and i don't know if you can be a phantom without being paid -- >> we don't. and the talk is that it's far less than that. but they have advertised repeatedly that their database had that many names in it. >> danny, look, there's a lot of things you can see for. you can go after punitive. you can go after -- you can go after damages that you suffer financially. you can go after pain and suffering. you can go after all sorts of things in a court of law. when it comes to this, are you
9:37 am
seeing where the limitations are? >> the largest barrier in these data breaches so far has been what we call standing. in other words, the mere fact that your data is out there, have you suffered an actual harm sufficient enough to allow you to file a lawsuit in court? in other words, has something bad actually happened to you yet? or are you merely facing the threat of your data being throughout? now we are certainly in new ground because it's not so much the data but the fact that you were on the web site in the first place that is causing this harm. earlier this year, the seventh circuit court of appeals struck a massive blow for plaintiff's attorneys in the class action context by saying that people whose data is put out there, data that is breached, that t fact that they may suffer a potential injury by having that information out there is sufficient to allow a class action to move forward. and i have to tell you, in the world of data breaches and plaintiffs' attorneys -- >> this is a whopper. >> this is going to be a major sea change. >> let me just pop up the disclaimer that's embedded in all the fine print in all those
9:38 am
web sites that we all hook up with, whether it's a credit card or ashley madison. this is what it says in the fine print that you agree to. "although we strive to maintain the necessary safeguards to protect your personal data, we can not ensure the security or privacy of information you provide through the internet and your e-mail messages. you agree to release us, our parent, subsidiaries" and it continues "affiliated entities from all claims, demands, damages, loss, liabilitiesed of every kind known and unknown direct and contingent, disclosed and undisclosed arising out of or in any way related to the release or use of such information by third parties." they've thought this through well beforehand. i need a one-word answer from my two lawyers. starting with you, paul, does that absolve them of anything? >> depends on the state the lawsuit is brought in. the rules are different in every state and that is canadian company so you have canadian, u.s., and many state cases. >> that's more than one word.
9:39 am
what do you think, danny? is it a good defense? >> it depends. there's my lawyer answer. it depends. it's a rule of contract law that you cannot take a ticket and absolve yourself of all liability in the fine print. however, courts have been upholding these click wrap agreements as they're called. >> we'll continue to watch and i think it's so tragic that we're now talking about suicides. we were concerned about people overseas who are executed for certain kinds of relationships, sometimes summarily in the street without adjudication. this is a sad and ugly story all around. laurie segall, thank you, paul callan, danny cevallos. up next, if you have an arrest warrant in your name in ferguson, missouri, you might not have to worry about it today and you may be getting one whopper of a break. i'll tell you why, next. you premium like clockwork. month after month. year after year. then one night, you hydroplane into a ditch. yeah... surprise...

if you have an outstanding arrest warrant in ferguson, missouri and this warrant was issued before 2015 you might just be able to kick back and relax a little. ferguson's new municipal court judge is wiping every warrant dated 2014 or earlier off of the books. why? it's part of what he calls a "fresh start" in response to a scathing report from the u.s. justice department that's accusing ferguson police of
9:44 am
policing for profit. that is flooding the streets with citations for trivial offenses and raking the revenues from offenders who either pay or risk arrest. i'm joined by correspondent sara sidner. i don't know if this is in reaction to the justice department and its overseers, if they actually made this happen or if the judge decided that this should happen. but effectively what's the net effect of what's going on there? >> i want to run down for you, ashleigh, a few of the things that were put in that order. one of those was that warrants before 2015 are withdrawn. and that's all warrants, not just ones for things like missing court or not paying a traffic fine but all warrants have been wiped out from 2015 before december 31, 2014. so warrants over five years, that's another one. those are thrown out completely and failure to appear. that was one of the big things where people would get all these fines on top of fines on top of fines and not be able to pay and
9:45 am
then have -- not want to go to court because they couldn't pay knowing they might be arrested so failure to appear is no longer going to be a reason to actually put out a warrant for you and have you arrested and put in jail. so those are the three big main points of this particular order that the judge has put in. remember, this judge has put in place after the prior judge was slammed by the doj for some of the work that he was doing there that was negatively affecting the community. ashleigh? >> so the question i think a lot of people have is, what? just everything just goes away? you get a complete fresh start? it's all disappearing? it's not that simple, is it, vary? >> it is absolutely not. you struck the exact right tone there. basically, what they're saying is, yes, the warrants are gone but the cases are not gone and those still must be resolved. it's almost like you get a clean slate but you're not starting from zero. you still have to go back to court and try to resolve these
9:46 am
cases. some of the way they're doing that is they say, look, we know people that were given fines on top of their tickets on top of that and each time they missed a date or did not comply they get another fine that they may not have the money to pay so they're doing things like you can do community service, you can go on a payment plan, and if you are considered indigent we may wipe those fees out all together and then you do get to start from zero. the case goes away, but you have to work it out through the courts, ashleigh. >> then you really, exactly, what you just said, you have to work it out through the courts. you have to show up. it's the people that didn't show up got the warrants, this time they get a second chance but they have to show up. sara sidner, keep track of it for us, thank you, ma'am. good to see you. up next, a boys' babbsketba team gets booted when they made it to the national tournament and were climbing in the ranks. all because this girl was part of their team. t t the boys' team, girl player, not

bet you've never heard of kimora johnson, charlottesville, fifth grader, basketball player. adorable and good at sports. there's nothing like telling your mom "we have made it to the national championship tournament. and there's nothing like telling her "we got to the semifinals in the tournament." and there's nothing like telling your mom "they disqualified us, mom, because i'm a girl." because the ntba's rules say a girl can't play on a boy's team in the national championship. it really happened. you know what the boys did? they stood in solidarity with her on the sidelines at that championship and then you know what happened? some even bigger. something even bigger happened when the new york liberty, with nba, they heard about this, they said "we're flying you to new york city and you'll play in the
9:52 am
big leagues at madison square garden" and that's what this team did. that's kimora on the right. that's her in the center at msg, under the spotlight. pretty good consolation prize. and there is smog like talking to candice wiggins and swing cash. ladies, this is amazing. how did you get this orchestrated to have that team come to new york city and show their stuff? >> you know now days with social media everything just takes off. but once we heard about kimura's situation, i think the new york liberty stepped up to the plate. they've been doing it all season long as far as helping young girls get into the game of basketball but together the new york liberty, the sponsors brought this team here to watch them play after our game, it was so exciting. they were so happy to just be in that environment. and candice and i to be a part of that was a treat. >> so candice, this is so wonderful. did this seem to make things
9:53 am
better? i mean, obviously these kids were crushed. did this change the equation for them to have this opportunity? >> absolutely. this is an experience. it was an opportunity for them to kind of rearrange just everything that was going on and the priority is the kids, you know? they're the ones who are impacted and it was just so special. it was special for all of us. people watching, it was really amazing. >> and candice and i both played when we were younger on boys' teams. so for us it hit a chord. my first sporting activity was baseball and i never had this happen. >> so let me read the ntba's rules because they clearly state that girls can't play on boys teams, boys can't play on girls' teams and they along with the charlottesville cavaliers basketball team, which is their team, said in a press release, and i'm going to read it "ccb and the ntba are committed to offering equal competition opportunities to boys and girls in the sport of basketball. in an effort to ensure nothing
9:54 am
similar happens in the future, the ntba is examining its rule policies." do you even understand why there would be a rule like this in the first place? we're talking about fifth graders. we're not talking about potentially the liability of smaller girls getting hurt by 17-year-old boys. that's my guess as a layperson but this is your world. why would they have the rule in the first place? >> well, beyond why they would have the rule but i understand in our society today. i mean, you look at title ix 40 plus years ago. we had to fight for these rights. you never think it would get down to middle school level. fifth grade is when boys and girls should be playing together before you have divisiveness and separating them. >> i want to play a moment with kimura johnson and her supporters just so we can hear from her and i want to ask you something in a moment. take a look. >> when they told me we were coming to madison square garden, i thought it was just, like, not
9:55 am
real. >> madison square garden is -- they wanted to bring the team out. we were like what? i didn't believe it. >> me either. i still don't believe it. >> i was just looking at the stadium and how big the letters were and it just felt good. >> they're going to remember this forever and it will help them change the way things are seen in the future as well. >> oh, my lord, this is adorable. you got the shirt with you she was wearing in the video "girls don't sit on the bench" and they're all wearing pink shorts. tell me about how they got costumed like that for the game. >> well, i'm not really sure but i was really digging that. [ laughter ] i played on a boys team, it was a very similar situation. i plaiyed on the san diego risig stars and we got disqualified for playing in similar circumstances and had to play the bcis and won the championship. so just kind of being in kimura's situation, it's -- it's
9:56 am
hard to really understand that. but when the guys, like, their actions, i was so impressed with them. the whole time their character and you just see these young boys, they're going to become the most distinguished men. >> they already are. they're on cnn. wearing pink shorts. i love it. i love that. guys, thank you so much. candice wiggins, swin cash, thank you both. it's great what you did. and i'll say thanks for kimura as well. and thank you for watching. it's been nice to have you with us. wolf starts after this quick break.
