10:00 pm
>> from sun city to social media. to selfies. no? >> this is "cnn newsroom" live from los angeles. donald trump gets bumped from the top of the national polls for the first time in more than 100 days. plus, the shocking video of a violent arrest in the middle of a high school classroom. will it cost this officer his job? and they managed to push isis out, but it came at a heavy price. hello, welcome to the united states and around the world. "newsroom l.a." starts right now.
10:01 pm
we begin with u.s. politics and a new front-runner in the republican presidential race. a new national poll shows ben carson topping donald trump for the first time. this comes on the eve of the third republican debate. cnn's sarah murray has the details. >> reporter: dr. ben carson is going toe to toe with the entire republican field and he's winning the latest round. >> this is the right color. that way if you get blood, you can't tell. >> reporter: for the first time since taking the lead months ago, donald trump is no longer on top nationwide,leaving the businessman struggling to understand the shift. >> i don't get it, to be honest with you. it's a little bit of a surprise. >> carson, 26% to 22% nationwide. in a new cbs/new york times poll. today, carson picking up the endorsement of an mma fighter. the fight to lead the field increasingly looks like a
10:02 pm
two-way race. as every other republican remains stuck in single digits. >> it's a marathon, it's not a sprint. polls will go up and down over the next year. no one should be terribly ala alarmed and no one should be terribly excited. >> a corner stone of carson's appeal, like trump, he, too, is a washington outsider at a time of growing frustration with the political class. it's an image he embraces in his campaign ad. 'i'm ben carson. i'm running for president. and i'm very much outside the box. >> reporter: meantime, as trump loses the lead, he's lashing out, claiming carson wants to do away with medicare. >> he wants to abolish medicare. and i think abolishing medicare, i don't think you're going to get away with that one. and it's actually a program that's worked. >> a claim carson denies. >> i would never get rid of the program. >> reporter: as recently as sunday, trump said he was open to medicare alternatives. >> do you also agree with ben
10:03 pm
carson when he says medicare won't be necessary? >> it's possible you're going to have to look at that. >> here in sue city, iowa, donald trump could not hide his frustration with being behind in the latest polls. he said it's terrible to come in second, but he also said he's not giving up in iowa, promising to spend money and continue campaigning leer. and pressing his supporters to work even harder on his behalf. sara murray, sioux city, iowa. >> the theme of wednesday's gop debate is your money, your vote. and it potentially presents a major economic policy test to, of course, all the candidates, but especially outsider candidates like ben carson and donald trump. what are your expectations for this debate? >> well, i think we're going to see some interesting dynamics going into this debate because things have changed a little bit. there's no scott walker on the stage this time. and this time you have ben carson in the middle flanked by,
10:04 pm
you know, trump and marco rubio instead of jeb bush. so ben carson, being the outside, his career as a neurosurge neurosurgeon, economics isn't exactly his strong point. so tonight, he's going to be forced -- that night he's going to have to be forced to discus policy that he's not normally comfortable with. so if there's going to be a time for him to stumble perhaps, it may be at a debate like this. and donald truch may be able to, since he's not very happy about being in second right now in iowa in one national poll, he may be able to use his knowledge of economics as a businessman to help him regain that lead. >> do you see this debate, given, as you say, the difference in the change in the polls, do you see this one getting especially nasty? because you know, we're 100 days out from iowa and the polls aren't in trump's favor. a couple of them in iowa and now carson is edging trump in one
10:05 pm
national poll. is this the one where the gloves come off? >> well well, i mean, i hope not, just from a -- the good of american politics. i would hope that people would stay bo board, but given trump's disposition, politeness has kind of gone out the window. except that ben carson has used being polite and levelheaded and very low energy, if you want to use a trump term, to rise above it. so has marco rubio, actually. and it seems to have worked at least for ben carson in the polls and marco rubio is beginning to move up a little bit. but you know who may take the gloves off, and that's jeb bush. jeb bush is in a terrible position. he's been doing -- his campaign did not have a great summer. he's very low in the polls. he's single digits. and donors are starting to question his strength. so he said over the weekend, we saw him get a little testy. he's got cooler things to do
10:06 pm
than to run for president. and engage in these kinds of back and forths and be miserable. well, he looked pretty miserable during that conversation. i would hope that he doesn't bring that energy into the debate tomorrow. if that's his version of taking the gloves off, that doesn't suit him well. >> if he doesn't have a good showing, how much longer can he stay in this race? >> he's super pac is very well funded. the right to rise super pac have a lot of money. they can prop up his candidacy probably well into the super tuesday states in the spring. if he wants to. if he gets to the point where he's so frustrated that it doesn't matter, we may see him exit sooner than that, but as of right now, i think he's still, given the strength of his super pac and that level of money, it can carry him pretty far. however, we need to see. he can't afford.
10:07 pm
jeb push can't afford to have another mediocre debate, he really can't. then the donors are going to shift their support most likely. >> cary fiorina's numbers went up in the last debate, they're sagging now. tell me about what she needs to do tomorrow, and really if she's got a crack at this. >> i think carly fiorina again, being that her career is in business also and as a ceo. she will be able to to speak on authority on economics. however, her problem has been her low name i.d. the only opportunity they really got introduced to her, she knocked it oit of the park the first two debates. she must absolutely do it again to gain that momentum and hopefully this time maintain it. she was unable to do so after the second debate because she was out of the news. again, trump and carson were
10:08 pm
dominating the news cycle. it was tough for her to get in there and they sarted -- the aopponents started to attack her record as ceo of hewlett-packard and she didn't absorb those hits too well. this is the opportunity to reintroduce herself again and discuss something she can think with authority on and hopefully she'll have another great showing for her and she can carry that momentum. another great debate. have - >> we'll see how it all plays out wednesday night. >> appreciate it. thank you. >> thank you. . >> democratic front-runner hillary clinton what would she do in the biggest u.s. banks if she got in trouble. "the late show" tuesday night stephen colbert posed the question. >> if you're president and the banks are failing, do we let them fail this time? >> yes. yes. >> we let them fail this time? >> yes. yes. yes.
10:09 pm
first of all, under dodd-frank, that is what will happen because we now have stress tests and i'm going to impose a risk fee on the big bank if they engage in risky behavior. but they have to know -- their shareholders have to know that yes, they will fail. and if they're too big to fail, then under my plan and others that have been proposed, they may have to be broken up. because if you can't manage it, then it's more likely to fail. >> a little back ground on dodd-frank for you, it's a regulation reform passed after the financial crisis in 2007 and 2008. clinton rolled out her wall street plan earlier this month saying she wants to crack down on abuse and tax certain kinds of high frequency trading. violently arresting a female student in south carolina, the sheriff is deciding if the officer will keep his job or be
10:10 pm
fired. abigail marquez has more on the disturbing video and the serious questions it has raised. [ bleep ]. >> the video, disturbing. a 16-year-old female high school student being forcefully ripped from her chair, handcuffed and removed from class. the school resource officer, ben fields, a deepty with the sheriff's department since 2004 has, for now, been removed from his duties at spring valley high school. >> i wanted to throw up. i mean, it's literally -- it just makes you sick to your stomach when you see that initial video. >> more of that encounter can be heard on a second video clip. >> you don't know me? are you going to come with me? come on, let's get you up. >> a video shows the young woman striking the officer as he begins to remove her from the
10:11 pm
room. >> it just shows when the officer puts his hands on her initially, she reaches up and she pops the officer with her fist. but again, does that justify the means? and that's what i have to look at. >> but what happened before the video started recording? why would a deputy who received the district's highest honor last year use such force? one student in the room writes on social media, the officer in to this is a cool dude. he is not racist. girl was asked to put her phone away but told her teacher no. an administrator was called. asked to come to his office, she told him no. the resource officer asked her nicely to get up over and over. she said no. he did nothing wrong. >> what about the student resource officers? we really have to take a look at this.
10:12 pm
they are arresting more people. >> african-americans receiving such discipline compared with 29% of white students. >> by now, that video has probably been seen by millions of people, but the kids in that classroom during the incident saw it happen in real life. one of those students says she spoke out about what was happening and also got arrested. she told cnn what she thinks should happen to the officer. >> honestly, i'm just going to say, i really think he should lose his job. i feel like not even an officer, like, no man should put his hands on a child like that. she's 16 years old. and this man is huge. i feel like he needs to lose his job. >> it really is sad and
10:13 pm
devastating and infuriating that a 300-pound weight lifting muscle bound man would assault a child the way that he did. and i feel as if a public apology is appropriate in this case as well as termination. honestly, this is a horrible situation has taken place in our schools. and someone has to pay for those barbaric actions. >> earlier, we spoke to cnn's don lemon and had this to say about what will go into this decision. >> this is something that not only the people of richland county, but the people of the world want to know what's going to be happen to him. is he going to be employed here or will he be terminated? i owe it to everyone to make a quick decision, but i also want
10:14 pm
to be fair and do a thorough investigation. that's what we've done. >> can you tell us which way you're leaning? is. >> no. i don't think i want to describe which way i'm leaning at this point. the video pretty much speaks for itself. . >> china is treating the movement of a u.s. warship as a provocation. we'll have a live update on the territorial dispute in the south china sea. plus kurdish fighters have pushed isis out of their territory in northern syria, but there's still lingering fear and distrust. >> dozens of villages like this one that were liberated from isis months ago are now still completely desserted. now, that's partly because the isis militants, before they were
10:15 pm
treated planted land mines and booby troop traps all across this area, but it's also because many people here aren't convinced that isis won't be coming back. bring us your aching and sleep deprived. bring us those who want to feel well rested. aleve pm. the only one to combine a safe sleep aid... plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. be a morning person again with aleve pm. good. very good. you see something moving off the shelves and your first thought is to investigate the company. you are type e*. yes, investment opportunities can be anywhere... or not. but you know the difference. e*trade's bar code scanner. shorten the distance between intuition and action.

>> russia's defense ministry says that group has made false assertions before, the syrian american medical society stands by its accusations that russian planes hit its hospitals. well, the u.s. is considering stepping up its campaign against isis in syria and iraq. the defense secretary ash carter testified before u.s. lawmakers tuesday proposing more air strikes or, quote, direct action on the ground. >> we expect to intensify our air campaign, including additional u.s. and coalition aircraft. to target isil with a higher and heavy array of strikes. this will include more strike against isil high-value targets as our intelligence improves.
10:20 pm
also its oil enterprise, which is a critical pillar of isil's financial infrastructure. as i said last friday, we've already begun to ramp up these deliberate strikes. u.s. and coalition forces launched 13 air strike against isis in syria and arack on monday. the white house is yet to decide on the new options, but several republican senators are criticizing the proposed strategy. they question whether u.s. trained forces would begin fighting syria's assad regime and not just isis. >> if i'm assad, this is a good day for me. the american government has just said, without saying it, they're not going to fight to replace me. what you' done, gentlemen, along with the president is you've turned syria over to russia and iran. all i can say is there is a sad day for america and the syrians
10:21 pm
aren't going to accept this. this is a half assed strategy at best. >> the u.s. is relying heavily on kurdish fight to carry the fight against isis and those fighters are gradually gaining ground in northern syria. but in nuttily liberated province, there's evidence the terror group is not far away. clarissa ward spent several days in the region and found an area battled by fear. >> reporter: weeks ago, these dusty planes were held by isis. this is what's left of its presence now. >> the charred remains of a training camp hidden in a pine forest. it's where isis streets the wounded with de stating effect. kurdish fighters took this entire area from isis in august. but holding it along a frontline more than 400 miles long is a
10:22 pm
huge challenge. the command toll us that he had lost 30 of his fighters in a recent battle. when isis came down from the mountain. >>. >> translator: the enemy used heavy weapons. they took control of three villages and after that, the clashes lasted for hours until we were in control again. >> reporter: the nearest friendly forces are miles away. the cost of pushing isis out has been enormous. streets here are draped with the flags of fighters killed in battle along desolate roads through abandoned villages, we saw scene upon scene of devastation. the wreckage of months of fierce fighting and coalition air strikes.
10:23 pm
dozens of villages like this one that were liberated from isis months ago are now still completely deserted. that's partly because the isis militants, before they were treated, planted land mines and booby traps all across this area. but it's also because many people here aren't convinced isis won't be coming back. in a tiny village, we met one woman who's lived here all her life. she told us she was too afraid to leave home when isis was in control, that they beat and killed people and brought misery upon the community. there was an air strike next to me. we were scared of everything, not just isis. are you still afraid, i asked in she says not, but glances warily at the kurdish ypg fighters with us. the kurds question the loyalty of many of these villages, claiming they harbor isis sympathizers. the killing may have stopped but
10:24 pm
there's no peace here. clarissa ward, cnn, mount abdul aziz, syria. >> all this week, clarissa ward brings you a series of reports from syria. a very serious provocation when it sailed near one of china's man-made islands. china says the warship entered illegally but the u.s. doesn't believe their claim are official. good to have you with us. what's the japanese government's view on the u.s. mission in the south china sea?
10:25 pm
>> well, the united states and the japanese government, of course, are close allies. the united states has a number of military installations in this country, including this particular base that passed by that man-made island and sparked this escalating tension. for a long time, japan and the united states have been talking about their concern that the united states government is becoming more assertive in pushing its boundaries further and further away from mainlan china. it was something that was extensively discussed when abe and president obama met this last spring. these freedom of navigation patrols, this is something they've been considering for quite a while. they've been doing aerial patrols and now they plan to launch more of these sea patrols as well. they do not recognize china's claim to these areas. they say it's international waters. they're following international
10:26 pm
law and that, of course, clearly afternoon act that's infuriating the chinese government as they say yesterday. >> stooen, if i could turn to you, we know the u.s. ambassador to china was summoned. do we know any more about that meeting, any details emerging? >> well, ambassador bach got a severe dressing down from the china foreign minister, but the missage was very similar to what the ministry said publicly, that the u.s. action endangered the life of those on the islands and also the chinese side considers this move a se streer provocati provocation and beijing asked washington to correct its mistakes and come back to a track of more dialogue and consultati consultation. the word of this mission leaked out some time ago, and chinese
10:27 pm
officials have been telling me privately that they felt perplexed and frustrated about the u.s. insistence on going ahead with this. they say this comes so soon after what they considered to be a very good and successful business by the chinese president to the u.s. where this issue was discussed. that certainly just -- they don't understand why the u.s. is doing this. this kind of sentiment by chinese officials may explain why the foreign ministry response has been so quick and angry. isha? >> very, very interesting indeed. >> our own will rippley joining us from the request naval base. we appreciate it. thank you to you both. >> well, next, it's soon going to be harder that buy a gun in one major u.s. city. that's because the last gun store there is about to close. and an end to game one of the world series that took 14 innings to decide. i am totally blind. and sometimes i struggle to sleep at night,

10:32 pm
the fbi is investigating the violent arrest of a south carolina high school student. the incident was caught on video. it shows a school resource officer pulling the student from her seat and dragging her across the floor. >> the goal is to improve public and officer safety. the pilot program will allow the department to sample several products before making a final decision. six months ago, the controversial death of a black man in police custody sparked heavy rioting in baltimore. >> there's two sides to every story and it's not often the police side really comes out. if there's stuff that's going on, it needs to be fixed and needs to be addressed. i think it will hold everyone a little more accountable.
10:33 pm
>> the report says the options have the option of leaving the cameras on or off in duty, but the motto is, when in doubt, record it. >> handgun owners here in los angeles will soon face some new responsibilities. the l.a. city council voted that gun owners will have to keep their weapons loxed up or disabled with a trigger lock when they're not using them. the new rule is meant to protect children. l.a.'s manipulate yor is expected to sign the measure eand it would go into effect in 30 days. >> well, san francisco's last gun store is closing its doors at the end of the month. the general manager of the high bridge arms blames new gun laws he says describe lates customers privacy. the new laws call for videotaping gun purchases, recording all gun sales and reporting ammunition sales. >> bad guys can still get theirs, now it's making harder
10:34 pm
for law-abiding citizens to get theirs in the city. >> i think it needs to be addressed the. >> joining me now is city supervisor mark farrell. great to have you with us. now the owners of the high bridge arms store are partly blaming your proposals for their upcoming closure. how do you respond to that? >> whether it be the mass shootings we've seen in the past few years from sanity hook to oregon just a few weeks ago, gun violence is killing hundreds of thousands of americas. and congress has not passed one single gun safety law in response. when a federal government doesn't act, it becomes incumbent upon local jurisdictions like the city of san francisco to make sure that we promote and pass legislation to protect the residents of our own cities.
10:35 pm
>> what do you say to those who say san francisco already had some of the toughest gun laws on the books and these new measures are simply about optics and playing to your city's liberal elite. >> the legislation that i introduced and that we actually passed unanimously today at the board of supervisors in san francisco was modelled after other jurisdictions that have already had exactly the same pieces of legislation. chicago, in particular, and another city in the state of california already had the videotaping legislation that was passed today. and as well the ammunition sales legislation that i introduced and passed today, it already exists in about 14 other jurisdictions in the state of california. so in this instance, san francisco is actually smaking sure that we continue to lead, but also follow other jurisdictions that have similar laws at the moment. >> will these measures mean anything for illegal gun sales.
10:36 pm
your critics say this won't have any impact on illegal gun sales. >> over 75% of the guns kbruzed in the united states in gun violence instan stances are legy obtained. and 80% of the guns in mass shootings in the united states have been legally obtained. so we have a strong problem in our country with strawman purchases. people who come and purchase guns legally and turn them around and sell them illegally. this gun store in particular in the city of san francisco sold over 1,000 guns every single year. if that means 1,000less guns on the streets of san francisco, i believe the residents will be safer and i will never shy away from making public safety one of my top concerns.
10:37 pm
>> when congress fails to act, it's based on local jurisdictions to make sure we place the public safety first. it's very different living in a city such as san francisco or other major urban centers across the country than if someone is homesteading in alaska and requires a firearm to put food on their dinner table every single night. different places will have different law, i fully anticipate that, but i do believe it's a very different discussion when you're talking about living in the urban corridors of our country such as a city of san francisco and what gun safety laws mean and what they should be promoting. >> we appreciate your time tonight. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >> apple defied wall street expectations with an impressive quarterly earnings report. their profit surged 31%, thanks to strong iphone and mac sales. but their biggest jump was in china, the second largest market behind north america where they
10:38 pm
almost doubled sales. apple is said it believes china will become its largest market some day and their recent success there bodes well for that prediction. >> tweter stock fell by 10% as the company failed to reach its goals for adding new users. the social media platform is struggling with the same problem it's had for a while now. those already familiar with the service, they love it. but those who aren't are in no rush to embrace it. >> new climate stud dpi shows one part of the world may soon be too hot for humans. we will tell you where. i'd like to make a dep--

parts of the middle east could soon be too hot for humans to live in. that's according to a new study. the report says the extreme heat could set in within a century. a companion study claims temperatures could reach up to 60 degrees celsius. our meteorologist joins us with more on this story. these are pretty scary claims. >> they are, absolutely are. and you know we've seen so many stutd dis that show when it comes to climate change, just how it relates to glacial melts, sea level rise, extreme weather patterns, this particular study took it a level farther. just took it towards the arabian peninsula, already known for being one of the hottest places in the planet. and put the greenhouse gases we're currently putting it 85 years ago and seeing how the temperatures would react. the temperature indications were air temperature would feel as hot as 40 to 50 celsius. we're talking about 120, 130 and

talk of ground troops in the place for iran as washington reconsiders its strategy in the fight against isis. >> new details in federal investigations after a high school student's violent arrest in south carolina. >> and how will he respond? all eyes on donald trump amid a slide in the polls and another debate on tap. a big welcome to our viewers
12:01 am
in the state and those of you watching around the globe. i'm errol barnett. >> and i'm hoicrosemary church. thanks for joining us. this is "cnn newsroom." our top story this hour, the u.s. is considering upping its campaign in syria and iraq. >> several republican senators are blasting the proposed strategy. barbara star as the details. >> reporter: isis fighting for control of syrian army check points near aleppo. just one moment on the complex battle field of syria and iraq that defense secretary, ash carter, says he now has a plan to change. >> we won't hold back from supporting capable partners in opportunistic attacks against
12:02 am
isil. whether by strikes in the air and direct action in the ground. >> direct action means special operations forces conducting high risk ground raids like the one inside syria against a senior isis leader. and again last week's daring hostage rescue mission where joshua wheeler was killed in action. the pentagon also focusing directly on the self-declared capital of isis, raqqa, in syria, as well as ramadi in iraq. another key isis stronghold. the top general laying out his own call for boots on the ground. >> if it had strategic impact and we could reinforce success, that would be the basis framework for making the recommendation for additional forces with units. >> president obama has to approve any new plans but the
12:03 am
pentagon still resistant to establishing a in-fly zone to protect civilians and rebels on the ground. an idea backed by key republicans and hillary clinton clinton. >> anyone we send in and train we're going to protect from russian air attacks. we haven't done it. >> reporter: one republican senator pressing for direct u.s. action against bashar al assad. >> russia is going to fight for him. and we're not going to do a thing to help people take him down. do you see any credible military threat to take him down? >> i think the balance of forces right now are in asaad's advantage. >> not his advantage. he is secure as the day is long. >> reporter: but the question is when does all of this turn into u.s. forces on the ground in
12:04 am
combat? barbara star, cnn, the pentagon. the u.s. secretary of state will hold another round of talks in this week to discuss a political settlement in syria. >> that meeting follows talks last week with russian, saudi arabia, and turkey. for the first time, u.s. officials say iran is to be invited to the talks. >> i wouldn't call them a partner, necessarily. but, obviously, there are many stake holders in this, and so we do anticipate that iran will be asked to participate f. if they come or not, that's up to their leaders. >> the u.s. is relying heavily on kurdish fighters to carry the fight against isis, and those fighters are gradually gaining ground in northern syria. >> in the newly rliberated
12:05 am
province, there's evidence the taliban is not far away. >> reporter: weeks ago, these dusty planes were held by isis. this is what's left of its presence now. the charred remains of a training camp hidden in a pine forest. it's where isis trained an elite unit of suicide bombers that attacked kurdish positions with devastating affect. kurdish fighters took this entire area from isis in august, but holding it, a front line more than 4 00 miles long is a huge challenge. a commander told us he had lost 30 of his fighters in a recent battle when isis came down from the mountain. >> translator: the enemy attacks us with a large number of fighters and took control of three villages. the clashes lasted for hours
12:06 am
until we were in control again. >> reporter: he's an italian commander, but this is the size of his battalion, a hand full of poorly equipped men, the closest forces are miles away. the cost of pushing isis out has been enormous. streets here are draped with the flags of fighters killed in battle along desolate roads, we saw scene upon scene of devastation. the wreckage of fierce fighting and air strikes. dozens of villages like this one that were liberated from isis months ago are now still completely deserted. that's partly because the isis militants before they retreated planted land mines and booby traps across this area. it's also because many people here aren't convinced that isis won't be coming back. >> in the tiny village here, we met someone who's lived here al
12:07 am
her life who said she was too afraid to leave home when isis in control. they beat and killed people and brought misery upon the community. there were no air strikes before they arrived, and then the strikes started. there was one next to me. we were scared of everything, not just isis. are you still afraid, i ask. she says not but glances warily at the kurdish ypg fighters with us. the kurds question the loyalty of many of these villages claiming they harbor isis sympathizers. the there's no peace here. >> and all this week our senior international correspondent brings you a series of reports from front lines of northern syria. you won't want to miss it. only here on cnn. to another big story. a school district in south
12:08 am
carolina, it's been thrust from the public eye after a vowe shown. >> both the fbi and the u.s. justice department are now investigating the incident, and a new video giving a closer look at the force used by the officer and it's added to the outrage. >> reporter: the video disturbing, a 16-year-old female high school student being forcefully ripped from her chair, handcuffed and removed from class. the school resource officer, ben fields, a deputy with the sheriff's department since 2004 has been removed from his duties at the high school. >> i wanted the to throw up. it makes you sick to your stomach when you see that initial video. >> reporter: more of the disturbing encounter can be
12:09 am
heard on a second video clip. >> you don't know me? are you going to come with me? i'm going get you up. a video shows the young woman striking the officer as he begins to remove her from the room. >> when the officer puts his hands on her initially, she reaches up and pops him with her fist. but, again, does that justify the means? does that justify what we did? and that's what i have to look at? >> reporter: but what happened before the video started recording? why would a deputy to received a highest honor last year use such force? one student in the room writes the officer in this is a cool dude. he's not racist. girl was asked to put her phone away. said no. an administrator was called. asked her to come to her office. she said no and then called the resource officer. he asked her nicely to get up over and over. he did nothing wrong.
12:10 am
the incident has caused anger and revived long-held concerns about the treatment of young african americans in the school district here. >> and what about the student resource officers? we really have to take a look at this. they're arresting more people in school than they are in the streets. that cannot be. >> reporter: the local aclu kpa chapters notes things in schools are disportion gnat. 61% of african americans receiving discipline as compared with 29% of white students. >> a short time ago i spoke with the richland county sheriff and asked him if the new videos on emerging details about the deputy have changed his outlook. >> it disturbed me greatly. what we are looking at is the action of my didn'eputies. did he follow proper procedure. did he use any unnecessary
12:11 am
force? based on that we'll make his decision, if we'll continue to be ployed here or not. >> let's talk about that a bit more. deputy ben fields in his report says he used a muscling technique was because the student wasn't complying with his commands to leave the room. is this the room or are there other methods to deescalate the situation? >> there's other methods they're trained to use. we'll look at that. did he use those methods. did the muscling techniques he used, is that something we train them to use. >> talk to me about your policy. what procedure would permit a muscling technique? >> well, again, it depends on the escalation of the situation. how much resistance the sunt is given. we'll look at that, and then
12:12 am
we'll see if he used too much of a muscling technique or if he used a technique that we didn't approve of and we don't train. >> we should know what the next step is in the coming hour. the sheriff tells me he expects to reach a decision on field's future employment on wednesday. it was a rough start to baseball's world series and not just for the losing team. fox sports experienced a power outage at one point tuesday night and viewers across the country saw a message about technical difficulties. people were freaking out online. that blackout briefly interrupted the game. in the end the kansas city royals pulled out a win over the new york mets with an exciting pinnish in the 14th inning. >> well, for months, donald trump has dominated the u.s. republican presidential race, but now he's number two, and we look at his slumping numbers just ahead.
12:13 am

the u.s. republican presidential candidates will face off in their third presidential debate wednesday, but this time there's a new front runner. >> take a look at this new poll from cbs news and "the new york times." i'll tell you what the poll shows. ben carson leads with 26%. and donald trump has 22%. the campaign stop in iowa, trump told the crowd how he feels about being number two. >> do you think these guys, i'm not going to say carson. i'm not going to say rubio who really is way down. i mean, i am second. it's not, like, terrible, but i don't like being second. it's terrible to me. >> donald trump finding himself in unchartered territory at number two. and says he doesn't understand his drop in the polls. >> the it's called gravity.
12:18 am
sara murray has details. >> reporter: dr. ben carson is going toe to toe with the entire republican field and he's winning the latest round. >> that is the right color. if you get blood on you can't the tell. >> reporter: first time since taking the lead months ago, donald trump is now longer on top nightwide. leaving the businessman struggling to explain the shift. >> well, i don't get it, to be honest with you. i'm a little bit surprised. >> reporter: carson goes past trump. in a new cbs new york times poll. today carson picking up an endorsement from an mma fighter. >> that's a good picture right there. >> reporter: the fight to lead the field looks like a two-way race as every other republican remains stuck in single digits. >> the it's a marathon, not a sprint. polls will go up and down over the next year. no one should be terribly
12:19 am
alarmed or terribly excited. >> reporter: a corner stone of his appeal, he is a washington outsider at a time of growing frustration with the political class. it's an image he embraces in his latest campaign ad. >> i'm ben carson. i'm running for president, and i'm very much outside the box. >> reporter: as trump loses the lead, he's lashing out claiming carson wants to do away with medicare. >> he wants to abolish medicare. i don't think you're going to get away with that one. and it's actually a program that's worked. >> reporter: a claim carson denies. >> i would never get rid of the programs. >> reporter: as recently as sunday, trump said he was open to med dare alternatives. >> do you agree that medicare won't be necessary? >> it's possible. you're going to have to look at that. >> reporter: here in iowa donald trump could not hide his
12:20 am
frustrati frustration with being behind. he said he's not giving up in iowa, promising to spend money and continue campaigning here and pressing his supporters to work harder on his behalf. >> steven will help us understand what's happening on the republican side of this race. he joins us now from d.c. so, donald trump is on the back foot for the first time in some three months. he just doesn't understand it. let's help him out. why do you think ben carson has surged as of late? >> i think people are beginning to look at the candidates a little bit more closely. we're now less than four months away from first voting. we've gone through the summer which is a bit of a circus like period in u.s. elections and people are beginning to look at donald trump. i had several republican officials tell me in new hampshire, they're beginning to look at him and decide is this guy a potential president. there's some evidence that
12:21 am
college educated republicans are beginning to think he may be a liability as president and couldn't win a general election against someone like hillary clinton. that may be one reason his numbers are coming down. we have ben carson who's a neurosurgeon. it's an outsider candidate. it's not a professional politician, and it might be his time to have some time in the spotlight. he's going to come under a lot more scrutiny, and we're going to be able to see how he handles it. >> donald trump has something if you look at the polls. there's an enthusiasm gap. half of his supporters say their minds are made up. only 20 % of carson's supporters do. the owness is on carson to some way fire up his base. >> that's true. and so some extent, they're the same both. they're outsider candidates who are anti-establishment, who spend their time raging away at
12:22 am
washington and the politicians who they say are responsible for the status quo in washington. given that they're drawing from the same well sentiment in the republican party, it's going to be interesting to see which one of them can consolidate that wing of the party and take the battle to the establishment candidates when their support coalesces closer to the primaries. >> what about rubio, bush, carly fiorina, they're polling in the single digits in this new cbs, new york times poll. how do they make themselves seem like outsiders to have a shot? how can jeb bush, for example, do that. >> it's fascinating. these professional politicians, the that know what they're doing and how to win elections, they're in single figures. that's one of the keys to support for people like donald trump and ben carson. there's no single establishment
12:23 am
candidate that's been able to dominate that lane and take them on. jeb bush has promised to be a lot more aggressive. he's going to be a more energetic candidate. he needs to light a fire under his campaign. this guy had $100 million he raised in the first half of this year. he went into this as the front runner and is in single digits in the polls. he's struggled to connect. if he doesn't make a move, i think he's going to be in real trouble. he has a lot of pressure on him tomorrow night. >> we'll see what happens. our senior reporter with cnn politics, thanks for your time. joining us from d.c. >> thanks. the democratic field of presidential candidates has gone down to a two person race in a key state. >> hillary clinton was leading in iowa but look at the size of
12:24 am
her lead. it shows 65%. 24% support sanders. this poll was the first one taken of iowa democrats since joe biden announced he would not run for president. >> and hillary clinton gave a direct answer about what she'd do as president if the biggest u.s. banks got into trouble during an appearance on the late show tuesday night. she said she'd let the banks fail. >> she rolled out her wall street plan saying she wanted to tax certain kinds of high frequency trading the fires ranging across indonesia are an environmental crisis and they're making people sick. >> more than half a million people are now suffering from respiratory infections. the fires have been burning for more than two months creating a thick layer of haze in the hair. disaster management teams are

setting up evacuation centers with oxygen tubes for those having trouble breathing. zblanchts report published in nature climate change says global warming could make it impossible for humans to live in parts of the middle east by the end of this century. >> a companion study claims temperatures could reach up to 60 degrees celsius. we're joined by pedram javaheri with details and what those type of conditions will do to the human body. >> it's a fascinating study. we've seen a variety of studies in the past when it comes to climate change, glacial melts, severe weather patterns. this one looked at what's one of the hottest places in our planet. it took into account the greenhouse gas emissions on the rise and took the models up
12:26 am
through the year 2100 with the clint warming climate that's happening. they analyzed the wet bulb temperature. that takes the air temperature and humidity. it gives you the wet bulb temperature. you want to stay away from 35 degrees celsius. that's the temperature where if it reaches that number, your body loses its ability to cool itself off. with any living kreef creatures, your survivability depends on how you interact with our environment. your body sweats. that allows moisture to evaporate off your skin. you're bringing in extreme heat and humidity, now you feel encapsulated because the moisture content is high. it does not allow your body to
12:27 am
efficiently cool off. your organs can fail, and once you reach the critical temperature of 95 farn light, you're talking about the temperatures not allowing your body to cool off and it could become fatal within six hours. this area has massive high pressure in the area. temperatures 40 to 50 degrees celsius. with climate change and the rate it's progressing, the study progresses places impacted by the persian gulf as far as the moisture content and the increase in air temperatures can set up numbers we saw this past summer. we had an air temperature of 46 celsius, about 115 fahrenheit. made it feel like 165 degrees fahrenheit or 74 celsius. we don't talk about these every day. the concern is over the next 85 years we would be talking about these on a daily basis.
12:28 am
that's why it could impact the people who live in that part of the world. >> frightening stuff. >> it is. >> thank you. thousands of refugees are making their way toward europe but some are choosing bicycles over boats. we'll hear from some who've made it to norway. >> china's economy is slowing and this industry has been hard hit, but a multibillion dollar casino just opened up there. we'll show you why.

12:31 am
>> a warm welcome back. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm errol barnett. this is your last half hour of
12:32 am
the day with us. republicans support for ben carson is surging. a new poll shows carson leading donald trump with support from 26% of likely voters while trump sits at 22%. >> the taliban is encouraging aid groups to help the victims of the earthquake which hit afghanistan and pakistan this week. even telling their fighters to help victims and indicating they will not stand in the way of aid efforts. at least 364 people were killed and more than 1800 injured in monday's quake. >> the u.s. is considering upping its campaign against isis in syria and iraq. ash carter testified tuesday proposing more air strikes or, coat, direct action on the ground. the white house has yet to make a decision on those options. >> joining me now to talk more about this is lieutenant colonel
12:33 am
rick francone. ash carter testified before u.s. lawmakers tuesday, and he was proposing more air strikes and in his words, direct action on the ground. now, he's not saying boots on the ground. so what does he mean, exactly, and how significant is this sudden talk of escalating the war against isis? >> direct action has a specific meaning in u.s. military. those are u.s. operations with u.s. troops. no matter what, these are boots on the grounds. these troops will be in combat. all the words they don't want to use. >> and u.s. secretary carter, i should say, talked of u.s. forces adopting the three rs poilz, raqqa, ramadi and raids in the policy. if that happens, what could this mean in terms of casualties in one sides, and what does he
12:34 am
mean? >> i think he hit on something. these are the areas we have to go after, raqqa for sure. we haven't done much to it yet, and i think we need to step up our attacks there. ramadi is the capital that we have to take anbar first and then move toward mosul. i think that is far off. the iraqi forces are nowhere near that. and raids, look at missions. we'll see more of the missions like the one we saw the other day in which we lost an american special forces soldier. if we have more direct action, we could see more u.s. casualties. that's going to cause a problem for the administration. >> no doubt. and our own clarissa ward is in syria on the front line right now, and from what she has been able to ascertain, the u.s. effort is in great escalation and achieving little as it
12:35 am
stands right now. what's your reaction to that? >> i think that's a fair assessment. i think what we're seeing right now is a realization at the secretary level, that things are not working as they need to be, and he's not making recommendations to the president that we have to change what we're doing, over phenomenon that means violating some of these things like boots on the ground, direction action raids, all these things. if we don't do that, we're wasting our time. >> and the white house has not made a decision on the options yet. but how is it likely to respond, do you think, given the defense secretary has already put this question of direct action out there? >> mr. carter has been in government a long time. he knows the the rules. there is no way he would have made those recommendations to a senate committee had they not been vetted at the white house. >> and i do want to ask you before we go, has this escalation or this proposal for
12:36 am
escalation got anything to do with the russian military action in syria right now? >> i think the russians were a catalyst for some of the looking at what we're doing. i don't think the presence of russian forces on the ground, the russians at the air base are changing our dynamic about what we have to do, but certainly factored into the realization that what we're doing is not working and what the russians are doing ceases to be working for them. >> rick, always a pleasure to talk with you. thank you so much for your perspective on this. we appreciate it. >> good to be with you, rosemary. a town in norway known as an ideal place to watch the northern lightings has become a haven for refugees. it's north of the arctic circle and shares a boarder with russia. >> a growing number of asylum
12:37 am
