>> reporter: local time last night, that's when it began. the night sky lit up by a series of explosions part of days of efforts by coalition aircraft to soften up the town of sinjar isis defenders. it's symbolic because of what happened last year to the yazidis that live there. forced into the mountains. what's clear today, as the fighting continues, it's about the highway that runs a distance behind me here. highway 47. it goes from raqqa in syria, the caliphate self-secured hold in isis to iraq. they feel if they can get that, they can secure isis around the region. what we're hearing is intense explosions behind us. it clearly shows the aircraft come to get support of what may have been isis counterattacks and moving back down the highway. the kurds are clear. they need to cut the roadway
off. they say they have done it in certain parts. it's both symbolically and strategically vital for sinjar. but the efforts here are going to lead to something in the fight against ices. back to you. we have more breaking news for you. the faa probing a series of laser attacks into major cities overnight. several tv news choppers were targeted in new york city. you can see it right there. the green beam of light shining right into the camera. that's chopper 4 abc affiliate here in new york city. >> at the rear of the building, i see the people involved right now. they're walking in and out of the building. hitting us right now. don't look, george. oh, yeah, you think is this a joke, huh? >> the tv crew was able to get in touch with the nearby police helicopter which located the source of that laser. the nypd says two people are now under arrest, and charges are pending. now, also last night, three
separate commercial planes hit by lasers while landing outside of dallas. those planes were at altitudes of between 3,000 and 4,000 feet. police are investigating those cases. all of those coming as they grapple with the crisis in the skies with drones. disturbing newly released video raising questions about the death of a man in 2014. the footage shows officers repeatedly tasing him while he's hand cuffed. the video surfaced as a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the man's family. pamela brown is live with the latest. >> good morning, this video we received through the attorney involved with the lawsuit shows the man dying while in police custody after he was taken away to the hospital and tased, raising questions of whether police should have done more to get him medical treatment sooner. >> reporter: this police video
shows three hospitals in south foster, virginia, tasing a man outside of emergency room. shortly after, that man died in police custody. the video begins with officers picking lambert up at a hotel early one morning in may of 2013. after several 911 call, made about noise. and in court records police say because of the way lambert was acting, they decided to take him to the hospital for a mental health evaluation. they say he made comments about murdering two people and hiding their bodies in the ceiling. >> we're going to take you out to hospital and we're going to get you -- make sure you're good to go. >> reporter: inside the patrol car, police say he kicked out the window. then the video shows lambert running straight into hospital doors while hand cuffed. falls to the ground. and the officers repeatedly ask him to roll over on his stomach,
while threatening to tase him. >> on your stomach! >> reporter: lambert then admits he's on drugs. instead of taking him to the emergency room, the officers take him to the police situation. the officers tase lambert multiple time, he's bleeding apparently from breaking the squad car window. by the time they get to the police station, lambert is unconscious in the backseat. he was later placed under arrest and going into cardiac arrest. the family blames the police and they filed a $25 million wrongful death lawsuit alleging the officers' countless disregard for lynwood lambert in tasering him multiple times and depriving him of the medical care he needed vie a littled his constitutional right to be free
from cruel and unusual punishment. and the south boston police department released a statement saying we are vigorously defending this case. our position is confirmed by the reports of two well qualified experts in the field. cnn attempted to reach the south boston police as well as the virginia state police who picked up this investigation of lambert's death. important to note the medical examiner said while cocaine was cause of death, there were three puncture wounds that looked like they were from a taser. cnn was not able to independently verify how many times lambert was tasered. >> we bring in matthew horace from fjc security services. this just does not happen. this happened on may 4th, 2013. there's been no actions since then.
with that with the context, when and how are you allowed to tase? >> tasers are an intermediate use of force. we use it most often to incapacitate suspects when we don't have to escalate up to police force. in this case, they felt they had the right to do so, once, twice, perhaps, eight, ten, 20 times. >> when is too much tasing? when is the line? >> you're supposed to encompa incapacitate them enough to get them handcuffed and restrained. once they're in your custody, you own them. >> they wanted to start off doing the right thing, they wanted to take this guy for help. le they didn't want to arrest him with some kind of delirium. and then something changed. >> what changed, they made a decision to take him to the emergency room, but then after they tase him, they apparently decide he no longer needs medical attention.
that's the admission we're going to see later. look, taser guidelines face a number of things that were not followed here. you should not use multiple tasers at the same time. you shouldn't expose people to a certain number or number of seconds under that electrical charge. here, all of those guidelines were exceeded. i will say this, however, federal courts that have addressed this issue when applying the grand and the standards to decide whether or not this was an excessive use of force had determined that where the suspect is trying to flee. even where they may be restrained, that using tasers is justified. they have excused officers' conduct. >> nobody is saying whether or not you can use tasers, it's when, right? you have the severity of the underlying crime, how much concern we have against you in the first place. wlur there's a threat to office which doesn't apply here.
and the third, whether resisting arrest. the guy's certainly resisting arrest. the question is why, they already made a decision early on which means he wasn't comporting himself as a perp, they took him to the hospital. >> that's probably what should have happened here. they identified it was a chemical dependence issue or a medical health issue. remember, livepolice officers a also trained to know this. >> you got three burly officers standing over him. they got leg shackles on him. >> right. he was more of a danger to himself. >> that's the use of the videotape. he didn't run into the hospital. he was on the the ground, trying to take the right type of things, danny, right? i'm responding. i'm on drug, i'm on drugs. >> it's a different thing in the
form of resisting with putting up their dukes or trying to flee. you don't really use the lethal force here, especially because tasers have been marketed as a less lethal alternative. they're not nonlethal. they're less lethal. and the guidelines, they give us a lot of information, but they as don't give us a lot of information in that because these are lethal alternatives, maybe the general idea is, well, we can pump someone full of these charges and we can do so, because we know that the statistics show they're not likely to die or be long-term seriously injured. and maybe that's an inherent problem when you're using alternatives. >> here's what the family's attorney had to say. >> it's intentional. there's no accident here. it wasn't accidental that they tased mr. lambert the first time. or the second time. or the third time. or the fourth time.
we know now from the discovery that -- taser logs, that the tasers were discharged 20 or more times. and that is contrary to the policies of the south boston police department. it's contrary to the recommendations of the justice department. it's contrary to the warnings and recommendations of the manufacturer of the taser. the conduct is unconscionable. >> how surprised were you that there are no charges in this case? remember, this happened two years ago. >> here's the fascinating thing about these cases, it's that if you look at the case law, the vast majority of these cases deal with people suing law enforcement agencies. they don't deal with the decision of a prosecutor to charge or really not charge an officer -- >> you can't sue them civilly for not having charged. it's whether or not there should be civil action against them. the guy's dead, that's the problem here. the guy's dead. it's not you shouldn't have used the taser.
it's you killed him. >> i know the m.e. is going to say it was cocaine. anyone insinuates you fill them up in an electrical box it's going to have an effect, too. >> with the cocaine and then that issue of excited delirium. we see is all too often. people's heart rates are up, they're sweating, excited. even in a shackle or handcuff, it causes a problem for the suspect and the police. >> obviously, the irony here, they wanted to take him to the hospital. this happened in front of a hospital. danny, matthew, thank you. a second student in missouri has been taken into custody overnight for allegedly making threats on social media. it comes hours after the 19-year-old was arrested for posting racially charged death threats against the university of missouri students.
turning now to politics, republican candidates getting back on the stump after tuesday's presidential debate. the battle over immigration is now front and center on the trail. cnn's athena jones is following developments for us from iowa. good morning, athena. good morning, alisyn, it was donald trump's hard line stance on immigration that helped rocket him to the polls. even democrats and republicans off the trail warn that his approach could have hurt the party's chances in 2016. it's clear the divide in the party on immigration isn't going away. gop 2016 hopefuls, back on the campaign trail, fanning across the country. >> we started off with 17. one by one by one, they're disappearing. >> reporter: trump in new hampshire. even rival ben carson heading down the host of virginia, headlining with evangelicals.
>> in romans 8, it says god before you you. >> reporter: jeb bush and chris christie and marco rubio. amid a deep divide over immigration. >> we would do it in a very humane way. >> reporter: trump not backing down from a build a wall immigration strategy. >> i don't care what donald trump says. >> reporter: jeb bush continuing to attack his plan as unworkable. >> 500,000 people would double the number of people processed through our judicial system. it's not possible. >> reporter: instead, citizenship and a guest worker program. >> having the ability for people to legally come back and forth and allow them to work. >> reporter: rubio open to the idea. >> i personally am open. >> reporter: carson also weighing in. >> i propose we give them a six-month period in which to register. >> there is nothing dpags knit about a bunch of politicians
saying i'm so compassionate, i'm going to give away your job. >> reporter: ted cruz quick to charge that his gop rivals supporting what will be amnesty. >> if we just believe with barack obama and hillary clinton on amnesty, republicans will lose. >> i asked governor bush last night if he thought the republican primary voters agreed with him on immigration. he said, yes, and pointed to the applause he got on debate night when he challenged trump's immigration plan. chris. >> thank you very much. in other news this morning, a tornado just ripped its way across iowa yesterday, destroying much in its path. homes, property, throughout knoxville, torn apart by winds that overturned a walmart semi. and ripped away parts of the roof. we're continuing to watch the storm as it moves now through the great lakes into canada. expect heavy rains until airport delays throughout the northeast. a utah judge just removed a baby girl from her lesbian
foster parents apparently because their lesbian. the judge ruling that they be placed with a foster family next week. they are approved by child and family services to adopt. officials from the department of children and family services is trying to determine whether they can now legally challenge that judge's order. >> let's get that judge on our show. we need to talk about this. >> absolutely. >> what would you ask? what's the key question? >> why would you take the baby away if they've been approved. >> well, he or she has it in their own purview to determine whether it's the best for the child. >> if they were approved for it and following the right channels, why? >> as we just heard from athena, the most controversial issue on
the campaign trail. it's front and center in the debate. immigration. we'll take a closer look at where they all stand when "new day" continues. the citi double cash® card comes in very handy with cash back twice on purchases. earn once when you buy, and again as you pay. that's cash back now, and cash back again later. it's cash back déjà vu. the citi double cash card. the only card that lets you earn cash back twice on every purchase with 1% when you buy and 1% as you pay. with two ways to earn, it makes a lot of other cards seem one sided.
and i didn't get here alone. there were people who listened along the way. people who gave me options. kept me on track. and through it all, my retirement never got left behind. so today, i'm prepared for anything we may want tomorrow to be. every someday needs a plan. let's talk about your old 401(k) today.
will immigration be the big dividing line in the race for 2016? it was huge at this week's gop debate. and with the candidates back on the trail, it's now becoming more important and divisive what do each believe. here cnn political's errol lewis and contribute to the daily caller, matt lewis. let's start off, errol, how big is immigration? is it a metaphor in this election? >> it's a huge deal. it ends up being, especially for latino voters, something republicans have tried to figure out. you had a latino vote for president bush in 2004, 40%.
it drops for john mccain who loses. it drops to 23% for mitt romney who also loses. and they've written about this, the republican party knows they have to try and turn this around. they know this is one of the key issues that has aseparated them from latino voters. yet, you hear the rhetoric. i think it was kasich said they're high-fiving each other in clinton headquarters when we talk like this. you can't win these voters and the next election talking this way, this loose, this rough, about immigration. >> matt, it seems as though this issue is diceiest for rubio. and they're beginning to go after him because he was part of the gang of eight, the bipartisan group for republicans, democrats that were going to work on immigration reform. he's since backed away from that. listen to ted cruz who is still holding him to account for that. >> 2 is not complicated that on the seminal fight over
controversy. the gang of eight here, that was the brainchild, chuck schumer and barack obama, that would have granted amnesty to 12 million people here illegally. that i stood with the american people and led the fight to defeat it in the united states congress. >> which american people, of course. >> he dropped the chuck schumer bomb there. that's got to hurt marco rubio. so, matt, what does rubio do? >> first of all, you're right, this has got to come from marco rubio. because rubio is doing really well. rubio is on the rise. eventually, ted cruz or somebody sells going to try to take him down. the way you take him down is talk about the quote/unquote amnesty issue. rather than responding in a debate where you don't really get to frame the issue, having a jack kennedy speech moment, john f. kennedy about the catholic issue or even barack obama about
reverend wright. number one, the senate bill was not amnesty. amnesty was forgiveness. the senate bill says, you can't be a criminal. you have to pay a fine, pay back taxes. then you have to wait a dozen years, then you might become eligible to possibly be a citizen. i think rubio has to define what it is he's supported. and then he has to explain why he has a different position today. i think answer is simple, we found out we can't with immigration reform. you have to secure the border. and barack obama poisoned the well with these supporters. i think rubio has to lay this out, he has a defensible position but he has to explain it properly. >> matt, there seems to be a schizophrenic back and forth, not with you, but the reality is it's that way. cruz says an nest tf amnesty is
word. rubio says, okay, i wanted to do that. we can't do it. we need to do something else. the big question for you guys is, do you pick someone who warms your heart or who can beat hillary? it seems like all of this talk should make you run to rubio, no? >> well, i think it should. but you got to remember, there's a republican primary happening right now. and there's a segment of the republican base that the immigration issue is a hot button passionate issue. they are very worried that we're going to have this situation where eventually, it's impossible for republicans to win elections. because the assumption is that hispanics are going to vote disproportionately for democrats. what they should do is actually look to texas, senator john cruz's john cornyn, the other texas senator actually won the vote as recently as last year. it's possible to win over
hispanics, as long as you don't go around saying that they're all rapists. >> good segway, matt. let's talk about donald trump's plan. he has now talked about using a deportation force to do the kind, friendly version of what eisenhower did when he deported more than 1 million people. that is not one big thing that people think of with great nostalgia. >> no, that's right. first of all, that didn't work. that's the first thing to sort of put right up front. they've tried it. it didn't work, if you want to try it again, sure, you can break up a lot of people and families and spend a lot of money. >> there wasn't even a family dynamic like you have now. >> right. and they have the cooperation of mexican government that sort of agreed to receive them and put them in areas where they needed agricultural workers in certain
areas. you don't have anything like that now. on the other hand, trump is not talking crazy. barack obama was called the reporter in chief here. >> the republicans say they just started calculating it differently. >> if trump were to begin to do that, boost that number, 10%, 20%, it would be disruptive as what he's talking about. it would certainly put the fear in people. part of what he's call for. the wall plan makes no sense at all. it's mostly about visa overstays, rather than people creeping over the border. he's using it as an issue because people like it. they like to hear him talk tough. they like to hear him talk rough. there is a solution, even though every expert, left, right and center, that you really talk to seriously, says that's not going to be the solution. you're not going to find 11 million people and have this remain the democracy that we know now. >> do you want to hear carson's point? >> sure. >> do we have time? >> sure.
>> they say, no. that's a tease. we'll have to talk about it later. matt lewis, errol, errol -- wait a minute, you guys have the same last name. >> different spell zblpg errol, you're not related. >> what about the jeb chest bump, do we have time for that? we have to save that for later on. no policy, but we do have time for a moment. jeb bush, could this be a metaphor for the resurgents. >> what! >> that was a chest bump with a new supporter. can we run that again, any chance. >> ahh, he's supporting jeb's immigration plan. >> he's a new supporter. so he gave him a chest bump. that was it. >> that's why it was relevant there. >> i think what we're looking at nature and quality of the actual chest bump do you believe that
worked for jeb bush? >> yes, that was a great chest bump. immigration is sure to come up tonight when donald trump is on "up front." tonight at 7:00. >> if you give him that, we have to remain with the fist bumps on the set. just know that. >> in the name of decency. startling images to see inner tubes, life jackets, piling up along the shores of the greek island. thousands of migrants risking their lives to escape turkey. europe's refugee crisis is worsening by the hour. we have a lot ahead here. the markets change,
at t. rowe price, our disciplined investment approach remains. we ask questions here. look for risks there. and search for opportunity everywhere. global markets may be uncertain. but you can feel confident in our investment experience... ... around the world. call a t. rowe price investment specialist, or your advisor... ...and see how we can help you find global opportunity. t. rowe price. invest with confidence.
underway. an estimated 7500 kurdish forces on a mission to retake the strategic city from isis. they are joined on the ground byby yazidi fighters. a two-day refugee summit is under way in malta, as europe faces its worst migrant crisis since world war ii. 18 drowned trying to find safe haven in greece. that's where we find arwa damon, getting the attention we hope of international people. . >> reporter: one can only help that it's getting the attention that hopefully, some solutions will come out of that. those migrants dying in these waters. trying to get from turk dhashgs you can see in the distance, to greece. that boat filled with life
jackets to act as something as a beacon. what they want to see take place those migrant and refugee boats coming and trying to land on this particular stretch island because it's easier for them. remember, they're not captained by anyone who actually knows how to navigate these waters. they tend to be captained by one of the refugees themselves. one of them arriving earlier packed with men, women, elderly and children. many of them arriving very cold. seeking treatment, pretty much immediately. especially cold because the boats that are they're in are so overpacked by the smugglers. by the time they reach greek shores, by the time they've been able to reach greek shores, they've taken in so much water. pledging fast sums of money to various african nations to help them clamp down with the smuggling. try to help them, stop, break apart the various smuggling rings. the problem is, whether it's
africa, or the middle east or afghanistan, the people who are fleeing their homelands or making that very difficult decision, they're not going to be deterred. they're going to continue to come unless those court issues that are forcing them to make this a very difficult and heartbreaking decisions until those court issues themselves are addressed, chris. >> then you have a weird balance what to do humanitarian, people that say is illegal. and you wind up with the costs. in another, bill cosby's defamation case brought by janice dickinson now on the docket. he will be questioned november 23rd in boston. a farmer model claimed cosby defamed her by calling her a liar. saying she was drugged and raped. more than 50 people have accused cosby of sexual assault. his former lawyer martin singer will also be deposed.
veterans in milwaukee helped stop the burning of an american flag. a small group of protesters lit the flag on fire outside of tuesday's gop debate site. so that group not only extinguished the fire but some police officers ceremoniously folded that flag. they liked or shared that video of the police restoring honor to the fallen flag zmrup definitely have a right to burn the flag, it's foungdz by the supreme court for free speech. but if you did burn the flag, it's also a right to save the flag. university presidents under fire for their handling of racism. why is this happening? we have answers for you next on "new day."
i'm mary ellen, and i quit smoking with chantix. i have smoked for thirty years and by taking chantix, i was able to quit in three months. and that was amazing. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it absolutely reduced my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems,
or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. i can't believe i did it. i quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
this morning with charles breaux. he's our cnn and op-ed for "the new york times." and ben ferguson. gentlemen, thank you for being here. charles, what's going on? why has this erupted on college campuses within the past week or so? >> well, a lot's happening. it's not just what's happening there, a couple weeks, there's a cumulative effect. i looked at mizzou, i visited there. and talking about racial tensions there. that was a year before this particular president even took office. dr. king in '67 talked about, you know, you can't look at riots -- this is not a riot, obviously -- you can't look at if this materialized out of thin air. it's a cumulative effect of environmental forces. i think what you're seeing a cumulative effect of environmental forces on these
college campuses that people do not feel necessarily kind of included. in the case of mizzou, didn't feel safe. and that they're also kind of exercising their power in an environment that is a post-ferguson atmosphere. >> that does seem to have been a fuse or a spark. >> right. then you also have the movie -- see, i grew up with "school days." that was big in the community when i was in college. this year it was a movie about black kids at white schools who feel aggrieved. and try to act that out. >> ben, how do you see what's going on that we're seeing at missouri, as well as yale, inch ka and other campuses? >> i think students want their voice to be heard. but you have to look at mizzou. and let's be clear about what
all of this really came from. you have someone who obviously is messed up in the head if they're willing to use human feces to put swastikas that we don't have pictures. and a president that is gay. that tells to me that. and it was told to stay away from windows, we know that was an absolute fabrication and lie. >> ben, they also said -- >> let me finish this real quick, though. he also said that he was talking to the national guard. since when has a student body president be the liaison with the national guards. you have to look at this and go, is this more about someone who says, i want to be part of a movement. no one's been hurt on campus. no one's been arrested on campus. and the one time they said it
was a racial slur against him it was guys in a pickup truck offcampus. and no one ever found them and backed up that claim. i think you have been to be careful to jump on this bandwag bandwagon. >> but, ben, sounds like you say this is fabrication, it's embellished -- >> i'm saying the president of the student body said, he confirmed that kkk was on campus. facts matter. when you have this many students in the middle of this, and tensions are high, for you to put out there the student body president that it's confirmed the kkk is on campus. and you've talked to national guard and university police. and none of the kkk was on campus. no one confirmed it, you had to delete that post, you got to look at the individual and wonder is this more about him being part of a movement than issues on campus? >> what about that, charles? is there a position that some people are agitators?
>> well, it's not up to me to fact-check for me whether or not the student body had someone in the back of a pickup truck. the first time that i heard that, that experience resonates with me because it happened to me as a kid. >> larger issue is, is something real happening on campus? or as ben suggests are college campuses a hot bed of protests and people wanting to kind of make a name for themselves on that? >> well, i think what we saw particularly this week, after the resignation, real threats and the fact that there was an arrest made of someone who actually made a threat to shoot at black students on that campus. >> it was not a student. it was many miles away. >> i didn't say that he was a student. and please don't interrupt me. i didn't say he was a student. and he threatened to shoot at people on that campus. that's a real threat to people. i think what students are saying
to their administration, we want you to recognize that this is our experience. we want you to be -- not to acquiesce to what is happening. but to actually be responsive to us and to hear us. in fact, when you issue demands, the demands are actually meetable things. they're not really -- this is what i tell people this is that they believe the system can be fixed. >> what about that, ben, from whatever the impetus is, whatever the catalyst is, things can still be fixed? racial tension can be worked on on campus and maybe this is the right catalyst for that? >> well, i think we also have to look at the fact when you have some people that are trying to make a name for themselves. they actually make a name for themselves by claiming there's more injustices on campus than there really is. i go back to the main core issue, you have an individual that is the student body president who is african-american and gay. how much more can you get that
you have someone like that to lead them. that tells me that the university may not have as big of a racial issue that everyone is trying to make this out to be. also, remember, nobody on campus has been hurt or harmed with any of this. the only main thing, the president of the student body said happened to him with this racial slur was off campus. now would the student body president expect the chancellor of a university to handle a situation like that? why would he be fired if that happened off campus? there's no way that the president of the university could fix that situation. he can't go off campus and somehow, you know, kick a student out of college that isn't going to college. they don't even know who it was, and it happened off campus. that's the problem. you have people that want to make a name for themselves in a situation. they're using this to make sometimes things worse than better. >> ben ferguson, charles blow, we have to go. thank you very much. you can tweet us using the

so, did hillary clinton really try to join the marines? clinton says she inquired about signing up back in 1975, after moving to arkansas before marrying bill. but not to avoid marrying bill. but was turned away. it's a story that was brought up during a group of voters. jeff zeleny, what's the answer, my brother? >> well, it's a great question. we do not have enough specifics actually to actually know if it's true or not.
you're right. she has been saying it over the years. it goes basically like this. around 1975 when she was 26 or almost 27 years old. she said she went into a marine recruiting office in arkansas to ask if she could sign up. she said the young officer who was working there was about 21 or so, he looked at her, he sized her up, no, the glass, your age, no, you can't. you may want to try the army instead. and she mentioned this yesterday, campaigning in new hampshire to a small group of voters. she didn't give any other explanation. so, we asked her campaign for just a few more details on this. because it seems so unusual that a yale-educated lawyer who worked on the anti-war campaigns of mccarthy and mcgovern, who had just moved to arkansas, whose husband was about to become the attorney general of the state would decide to want to join the marines.
but the campaign said they're not going to add any more comment on this. the questions are left to discuss here. >> well, jeff, this comes on the heels of ben carson's past of whether or not he embellished any stories. saying he was offered a full scholarship to west point and ended up not exactly as clear as that. to ben carson's point is that democrats don't look at this with quite the gusto as they do his narratives. are reporters digging into this story. >> i think the fact that ben carson said that people aren't looking into everyone. this is a bit of historical context here. he's newer to the campaign. inexperienced certainly anyone like the clintons. anyone can say bill clinton's background, was chuscrutinized the draft. but is this one point of hillary clinton's biography that is going to get a little more attention here. she first mentioned it 19
anoth94, when he was the first lady, on capitol hill talk about how far women came in the military. she mentioned that she once tried to join. it's one of those anecdotes that a candidate throws out and we often move on. we just want to try to understand why it is she wanted to try to join the marines. >> these stories themselves don't matter on some level. ben carson said he once stabbed a guy when he was a kid. that's what he wants you to know. whether it's true matters, it's apples to oranges, the guy has no other record except his biography which has made him very compelling to people. >> right. but is there a way to get to the bottom of hillary clinton's claim? is there any record to be kept of marine officers of anyone who came in to sort of volunteer? >> i really doubt that. i doubt there would be a record of someone coming in to inquire
about this. it has been looked into over the time. at that time, marines were admitting women. you have to remember what time this was. this was after streevietnam. all services were looking for women to come in. they marines were letting women in noncombat positions. but stories like this is hard to pin down. >> no recruiting officer is going to say, i turned this lady away. she was too old. you wouldn't set yourself up for criticism. remember with tony resco, they wound up going to obama saying, explain to us, senator, why is this okay? reverend wright, what did you take from him, what did you not take from him? >> right. >> and they're reluctant to provide it. >> with the upset. >> absolutely. let's talk about another
strange name that's come up on the campaign trail and that is hillary clinton's hair. donald trump of all people is talk about hillary clinton's hair. he has some questions about it. he was on mark levin's radio show. listen to this, jeff. >> well, she has a new hairdo, did you notice that today? >> that's called a wig. >> is that a wig? >> it was massive. her hair became massive. >> you know you're going to get in trouble now. >> i don't care. i don't care. but, no, because i'm a person that tells the truth. it was very different, wasn't 2? did you like it? >> don't get me in trouble now. >> he's not going to get in any trouble with that audience. this is a sexist shot? >> of all people, not to be making fun of hair, donald trump. >> i think anytime donald trump is making fun of hillary clinton's hair, that's going to help hillary clinton. this could fuel the skepticism
or the conspiracy theories in some corners that he's trying to help her hair. if they spend the day talking about is hillary clinton's hair, hillary clinton is going to win, i promise you. >> donald trump's hair is slightly smaller than hillary clinton's hair. >> wow. the hair report. thank you for that, jeff. there say lot of news this morning. what do you see? let's get to it. questions about the death of a virginia man in police custody. >> the force was adequate at that time. once they got his leg shackled, it should have stopped. >> on the the ground. >> i am. >> i just did cocaine, man. >> the conduct is unconscionable. gop 2016 hopefuls back on the campaign trail. >> i am hopeful that the people will pray for me and my family. >> amidst a deep divide over
illegal immigration. >> we would do it in a very humane way. >> i don't care ma donald trump says. >> the faa with a series of laser attacks into major cities. >> i see the people involved right now. they're walking in and out of the building. hitting us right now. don't look, george. oh, yeah, you think this is a joke, huh? >> announcer: is this cnn breaking news. good morning, everyone. welcome back to "new day." we do have breaking news for you this morning. the faa probing a pair of major attacks in two major cities. three separate commercial planes hitly lasers while trying to land in dallas. >> also, several tv news choppers were targeted in around around new york city. this in the face of drones, security and other threats faced by pilots. this is no joke. cnn aviation correspondent rene marsh live with details, what do you know? >> i can tell you, chris, three local television stations saying
they're choppers were targeted. the nypd saying two of those incidents happened overnight. one of those incidents happening over newark liberty airport. take a listen. this pilot was quick thinking. he zoomed in on the suspects who were flashing that laser at the chopper. and eventually, police were able to arrest him. take a listen. >> i see the people involved right now. they're walking in and out of the building. hitting us right now. don't look, george. oh, yeah, you think this is a joke, huh? >> the second news chopper was targeted over brooklyn. and separately, the faa says three commercial passenger planes were hit with lasers in the dallas area. all were at altitudes between 3,000 and 4,000 feet. coming in for a landing at the airport there. critical point of flight where pilots who simply cannot afford to be distracted. this is a federal crime. unfortunately, it happens very often. the number of reported laser
strikes on airplanes has soared in the last few years. thousands are reported each year nationwide. last year, nearly 4,000 incidents. michaela. >> they're messing with the wrong people. this time, the camm ecamera trained right on them. and 7,000 kurdish forces on a mission to retake that see from isis. the u.s. playing a pivotal role. u.s. airplaning providing that at all times. we'll take you to nick paton walsh. >> reporter: 9:00 local time last night, we can see the night sky lit up by a series of explosions part of day's efforts by coalition forces to soften up the. defenders. it's symbolic because of what happened there by yazidis that live there.
force into the mountains, binto captivity. what's clear as the fighting continues, it's about the highway that runs the distance mind. highway 47. it goes from raqqa in syria, the caliphate self-contained isis, to mosul in iraq. they feel if they can cut off that, they can cut off the ability to sell off oil in the region. it clearly shows a coalition aircraft come to get support of what may have been isis counterattacks to move back down the highways. the kurds are clear. they need to cut that road off. they say they've done it in certain parts. that's going to be in the hours ahead where the greatest fighting is. it's both vitally and strategically vital to that. in the fight against isis. back here at home, new video surfacing of a man who died in police custody after being
repeatedly tased. the images emerging as this man's family pursues a $25 million wrongful death suit against the police department. cnn's justice correspondent pamela brown is live with the very latest. what do we know, pamela? >> obviously, this video received through the attorney with the family involved in the $25 million lawsuit shows the handcuffed man being tased by police. and the video shows him dying while in police custody, despite the fact the incident happened at the doors of the emergency room. >> reporter: this police video shows three officers in south boston, virginia, tasing a man right outside of a hospital emergency room. shortly after, that man, 46-year-old linwood lambert, died in police custody. >> we're not locking you you up. >> reporter: the video begins
with the officers picking lambert up at a motel early in may 2013 after calls were made about noise. in court records police say because of the way lambert was acting they decided to take him to the hochlt 0 for a mental health evaluation. they say he made comments about murder two people and hiding their bodies in the ceiling. >> we're going to take you to the emergency room and get you -- make sure you're good to go. >> reporter: inside the patrol car, police say he kicked out the window. then the video shows lambert running straight into hospital doors while handcuffed. falls to the ground. and the officers repeatedly ask him to roll over on to his stomach, while threatening to tase him. lambert then admit he is was on drugs. >> i just did cocaine, man. >> reporter: but instead of taking him inside the emergency room, the officers take him to the police station. the officers tase lambert multiple times. he's bleeding, apparently from
breaking the squad car window. by the time they reach the police station, lambert appears unconscious in the backseat. he was later pronounced dead at the hospital after going into cardiac arrest according to the medical examiner's report. the report ruled the cause of death as acute cocaine intoxication. but the family blames the police. and they filed a $25 million wrongful death lawsuit alleging, quote, the officers callous disregard for linwood lambert in tasing him multiple times and depriving him of the desperate medical care he needed violated his constitutional rights to be free from cruel and usual punishment. the police say lambert's erratic actions required the use of force. and the south boston police department released a statement saying we're vigorously defending that. cnn failed to reach south boston
police, as well as virginia state police who picked up the investigation of lambert's death. we have not heard back. and there have been no charges against a police officer since this happened two years ago. >> that is a key fact. people are going to see what happened, pamela and say what happened. the answer is nothing. joining us harry houck and joey jackson. what do you say, hard droushgs you want to make a case against a use of force today and let joey defend it or stick with the constitution? >> well, let me tell you one thing, as far as the police officers' actions up until they get him shackled at the feet. i'm fine with it okay. >> why? >> because everything they did at that time was legal. here he jumps out of the car, tries to run into the building. >> he does run into the building. >> right. he runs into the building. >> it was part of the building. he falls down. >> falls down. he's not cooperating. they tase him. and finally get him shackled at the feet. i'm fine with that.
>> you're fine with them tasing him initially. >> right. >> are you okay with them tacing him initially? >> i think initially, certainly, the argument could be made that police do not know what his intentions were with regard to running into the building. did he pose a danger with medical personnel or others, therefore, the art could be made up to that point, the tasing was appropriate. whether you needed three officers to collectively tace him is a problem. >> three office, plenty of manpower. not frail looking officers. multiple tasers. necessary? >> no. >> one taser. not three. that was excessive. >> and how many times? >> all right. well, it depends, i mean -- >> 20 times over 30 minute. >> that's because you got three tasers. way, way too much, all right? a lot of times, though, when you squeeze that thing, a person is in shock. it doesn't work 100% of the time. that's a lot. it's excessive, as far as i'm concerned also.
what i didn't like also, when they took him and put him in the back of the radio car. >> why didn't they put him in the hospital like the original intention? >> that's exactly what i said. that's when the police officers made the mistake. what we do here in new york, get a gurney out there. put him on the gurney. strap him to the gurney. in my p.d., when we have a situation where somebody is having a psychological event, we have an ambulance respond. never put him in the police car. they would have had him tied up on the gurney. seems to me there's a problem with experience here. knowledge how to handle a man like that. there's a sergeant on the scene who should have known a lot better. >> now, there's also a report. in the report by officers, they say there were two points where they need restrain him. after the initial thing. the videotape concontradicts it. the videotape says the man was unconscious in the back of the car. >> that's problematic, certainly, that's going to be
raised in the civil lawsuit. in addition to what you're talking about which is then claiming that he was apparently fighting with them in the back of the car, that not really being carried out. we know at the police station, of course, he's unresponsive, he's unconscious. >> you see them putting their hands on the guy. checking his pulse. >> then you have the chief of the department, apparently, issuing a statement in a press release, not even referencing the taser. i think there are multiple errors here. i think it breaks down legally into three points. number one, was the force necessary to begin with? you can really break it down to different parts of that to argue that point. even if you get to whether force was necessary, then it becomes was it disproportionate. was a force used, the jury, look at the jury, was he posing a threat when he was shackled. >> and eventually cuffed and shackled. >> not only cuffed. he indeed was shackled but he was on the ground at that time. and when they initially tased
him, he fell to the ground. so what threat is he posing then. the point was, look, did the officers collectively act as any other reasonable officer would under those circumstances? and so that's really the analysis for the jury. so, if you conclude that the threat was disproportionate. there was no threat he posed. and what they did to him was disproportionate because he wasn't posing any danger. and how do you get to him using 50,000 watts of electricity. and how do you justify in the back of a police car using a taser to subdue him when clearly he does not need to be subdue. >> and lyinie inying about it. >> and if that turns out to be true, that statement that he fought them again, if that turns out to be true, the police officers should be in trouble. >> what turns out to be true -- we know he's unconscious and not responsive. >> we can clearly see, as far as i'm concerned looking at that
man in the back of the car, he looks dead. >> right. >> the people, two years ago, not saying send these men right to jail. but are you surprised that there was no charge brought here? so at least the analysis and case could be made. >> right. the guy's dead. >> listen, we're making pretty good analysis based on -- >> they didn't even charge? they didn't even charge. what does that tell you? >> i know. it's confounding to me that somebody wasn't scharcharged. even alone, if you saw it in the backseat of the car, alone, that was excessive force. >> the prosecution said initially that the officers did not act with criminality. we should also point out that the cause of death was acute cocaine. failure of the heart due to the acuteness of the cocaine. the medical personnel who rendered that arrest, did not have the benefit of the videotape in reaching that conclusion. >> right. >> so, clearly, the jury in this
case, will have that videotape and will be able to supplement that final finding of cocaine with what the officers did to him at that time? >> there's a low concentration of coke in his blood for what it's worth. are you surprised from the prosecutor's side that there were no charges brought? >> i am. based upon what we've seen. and here's the problem, chris, they have, with prosecution and law enforcement personnel when they're evaluating this, they have the benefit of all of this information. why does it take the release of it to the public so that everybody else could see what happened and the outrage. to the prosecutor saying we're still investigating it. what i said initially was merely an opinion and there may or may not be charges to file. >> final point. >> the question is, did the investigation take a blind side to that statement regarding what happened after he got to the station house? if it was, it definitely smells like a cover-up. >> well, we're reaching out to the police department to try to get their take. see if they want to take the opportunity.
harry, my man, always enjoy it. immigration certainly a hot topic when presidential candidates get back to campaigning. that subject sparked heated debates on the candidates stepping up their debate. athena jones is in iowa this morning. >> reporter: good morning, michaela, it was donald trump's hard line stance on immigration that helped rocket him to the top of the polls. even as republicans and democrats on and off the campaign trail have warned that his approach could hurt the body of chances in 2016. still, it's clear that the divide over immigration isn't going away. >> donald trump! >> reporter: gop 2016 hopefuls, back on the campaign trail, fanning across the country. >> we started off with 17. and one by one by one they're disappearing. >> reporter: trump in new hampshire. chief rival ben carson heading down the coast of virginia, highlighting his religious bona
fides with evangelicals. in romans chapter 8 that says if god before you, who can be against you? >> reporter: jeb bush and marco rubio in iowa. >> more coffee cominging your way. >> reporter: over a deep divide over illegal immigration. trump not backing down from his build a wall and deport 11 people immigration strategy. >> i don't care what donald trump says. >> reporter: jeb bush continuing to attack his plan as unworkable. >> a half million people would double the number of people processed through our judicial system, it's not possible. >> reporter: instead, citizenship and a guest worker program. >> having ability for people to legally come back and awork. >> reporter: rubio open on the idea. >> after ten years on it, i'm personally open. >> reporter: carson also weighing in. >> i propose that we give them a six-month period in which to
register. >> there is nothing compassionate about a bunch of politicians saying i'm so compassionate, i'm going to give away your job. >> reporter: cuban-american ted cruz quick to charge that his gop rivals are supporting what he believes will be amnesty. >> if we just agree with barack obama and hillary clinton on amnesty, republicans will lose. >> now, i asked bush last night, if he felt that most republican primary voters agreed with him on immigration, he said, yes. pointing to the applause he got on debate night when he challenged trump's deportation plan. alisyn. now to a disturbing story out of san francisco, where police shot and killed an armed man who had climbed on top of an elevator at a construction site. and he was aiming his rifle at a nearly hospital. they say the gunman had just stolen the weapon from a sporting goods store. officers shot the suspect when he turned the rifle on them. no one on the ground was

liberty university yesterday where he asked students there to pray for him, and he said that his religion powers him through his white house run. how does he stack up with other conservative candidates with tea party voters? joining us now is jenny martin who helped start the tea party. ms. martin, thanks so much for being here on "new day." >> thanks for having me, alisyn. >> so which candidate is most appealing to tea party voters? >> i think the great thing about the candidates, they're talking about issues that the tea party cares about. you have trump, carson, cruz, and even rubio talking about a lot of the issues that we've been talking about for the last seven years. we want to see more personal freedom. more quick freedom. we want there to be a balanced budget in this country. these are the things they're talking about. >> they're also talking about immigration. that was a big source in the debate this week. let me play for you what
dr. carson's plan was for the undocumented illegal workers here. >> if they register in that six-month period and they have a pristine record. and they wish to be guest workers in this country they would have to pay a back tax penalty and continue to pay taxes going forward. but they would no longer have to live in the shadows. >> so, ms. martin, what do you think about that? that's so different than what donald trump is suggesting, which is deport all 11 million who are here. dr. carson say there would be a pretty quick system to get them in the workforce? >> i think what tea party supporters have been saying for the last several years is that the first thing they want to see is that the border is secure. and that's what donald trump has said that he would do. he would make sure the border is secure first. that's the thing, i think, that trump is saying that resonates the absolute most. not just with tea party
supporters, but with republican voters and all voters. we have to first secure the border, before we start looking at the other issues, how to solve the other issues. >> well, sure. this is beyond securing the border, do you like trump's idea to deport everybody. or do you like ben carson's idea to make them register and pay back taxes? >> i think what's important that i like, what the voters see as appropriate action in this country, what we know for certain, there's already a legal pathway to citizenship in this country. and it's not fair to those who are here legally and on that legal pathway to reward those who have broken the line or broken the law to be here. >> let's talk about federal spending. there was this interesting moment in tuesday night's debate where rand paul was challenging marco rubio. they had a bit of an exchange about military. i want to get your take on this. >> why is it conservative to add
a trillion dollars in military expenditures? you cannot be conservative if you keep promoting programs that you're not going to pay for. [ cheers and applause ] >> can i respond? we can't even have an economy that we're not safe. there are radical jihadists beheading people. the chinese taking over the south chinese sea. and i know the world say safer and better place when america is the strongest military power in the world. >> so what of that? how does the tea party feel about this? increase military spending or cut military spending? >> following that exchange, senator cruz stepped in and said that he thinks he has a solution that taking care of both, making sure we have a debt-free future and that we are a strong, secure nation. and that is to make sure that we do have a strong military, while cutting spending where needed so that we can get to a debt-free
future and a balanced budgets. i think that's the balance that tea party supporters are looking for across this country. and i think it's also the balance that americans are looking for across this country. >> okay, jen ny beth martin, thank you so much. donald trump said his deportation force can get undocumented immigrants out of the country. but can his plan work? is it fair to compare it to a decades-old plan from dwight eisenhower? we'll dig deeper -- next. by working with trusted advisors who help turn obstacles into opportunities. experience the power of being understood. rsm. audit, tax and consulting for the middle market.

back here at home, a second student in missouri taken into custody for allegedly making threats on social media. the 19-year-old was arrested for posting racially charged death threats against the university of missouri students. racial tensions boiling over at other campuses across the country. students at inthica, new york. maybe the most coveted spot on tv time goes to steven cphen colbe colbert. it will follow super bowl 50. cbs no doubt hoping the $114 million projected super bowl viewers will stick around to see colbert who is averaging 3.3 million viewers a night in the first three months since taking over for david letterman.
back to our politics here, donald trump settling down on his promise to secure the border with mexico. he says he'll form a deportation force for 11 million undocumented immigrants in the united states. that plan, though, getting pushback even from some conservative groups. alfonso aguilar is executive director. good morning. >> thank you for having me. >> it's no secret that donald trump has a conservative view on immigration. we know it's resonating with the base. we're curious where you stand as a conservative latino? >> well, i think what he's proposing is a travesty. i don't know of any serious official who thinks we can remove from our country over-million undocumented
immigrants. and it's really insulting for trump to mention in the debate, the eisenhower plan as a model. and it was a travesty. there are people removed to places without water, food. even u.s. citizens who were of mexican origin were removed. it was terrible. >> can i ask you about that. to me, it's the elephant in the room. the fact that after the debate that donald trump was so widely discussing this very operation with such a pejorative term, that right there, my spidey senses went off. it's a terrible word to so many people. >> correct. >> and to continually reference this, that's problematic. i imagine you're hering from a lot of people. >> for him to portray it with
some compassionate policy. look, everybody liked ike. but i think this is one of those policies that frankly was not very popular or successful. in fact, he was criticized in the united states for the policy. also in mexico. so, look, we have to find a way -- the problem here is that there are people like trump and others arguing that anything sort of deporting people is amnesty. >> right. >> which is ridiculous. i think what governor bush is proposing. and i think he was forceful in the debate saying, look, we can't deport them all. let's find a way, given a path to legal status after they pay a penalty. so it's not amnesty. >> i want to play for you, actually, trump is challenged by this on fox news last night. i want you to listen to his response. >> that was brutal what they did to those people to kick them back. i mean, the stuff they did -- >> well -- >> -- was really brutal.
could never happen today. >> i've heard it both ways. i've heard good reports. i've heard it bad reports. we would do it in a very humane way. >> first of all, the word humane, can that even be done? >> this highlights how serious the trump campaign is on this issue and many other issues where he just makes statements. he doesn't make policy proposals. look, we want to secure the border. we want to make sure they're not entering illegally. we have an undocumented system that's so gbig because the systm is broken. let's enforce the law to make sure those entering illegally are removed. we have children who are u.s. citizens to remove them, it's not only that policy, but it's just un-american. and yesterday, doubling down saying he would create a deportation force that sounds -- really, that's un-american.
i don't think the majority of likely voters respond to that. many booed him. >> i heard that. i heard that. i'm curious, do you think a sound immigration policy and you know, the conservative values of the gop, do you think that those two things are at odds to each other, as a conservative latino? >> no, not at all. if you look at donald reagan. the last thing with immigration reform under ronald reagan. i think they're faced with a not support. you either support the so-called amnesty for mitt romney's deportation. it was recently ben carson talking about securing the border. verify, having an exit registry -- exit and entry registry, and also providing a path of legal status and a guest worker program to allow people who want to come here to work to enter legally. our guest worker programs in
this country don't work. that's why they're coming in illegally. >> alfonso, you get a sense. you get phone calls. you talk to people within your community, what are they hearing? do latinos love donald trump? what are you hearing? >> that's the other fallacy. they hate him. his unfavorability ratings according to gallup, negative 51. he do not win. within the gop field, you have good candidates who are constructive on immigration. that's why i think democrats, hillary clinton, is very concerned with having an opponent like marco rubio, jeb bush or i think even ben carson. >> alfonso aguilar, thank you very much. you do not want to miss donald trump on with erin burnett tonight. the faa investigating several planes in texas and
local news helicopters in new york, another threat emerging in the skies. we get perspective from how tough it can be for pilots and where this all happened. doing your own thing, making your own way can be pretty, well, bold. rickie fowler is redefining what it means to be a golfer. quicken loans is doing the same for mortgages. quicken loans. home buy. refi. power. official mortgage sponsor of the pga tour. i brto get us moving.tein i'm new ensure active high protein. i help you recharge with nutritious energy and strength. i'll take that. yeeeeeah! new ensure active high protein. 16 grams of protein and 23 vitamins and minerals. ensure. take life in.

breaking overnight -- several incidents of lasers being pointed at aircraft in the dallas area. the crews of at least three different jets reporting laser strike on their cockpits here in new york city. news choppers in new york stations on all three major networks were hit by lasers. good news, two arrests in that case. let's bring in cnn aviation analyst and former inspector general of the d.o.t., mary schiavo. this isn't a joke. it's dangerous. blinding a pilot could have real consequences. is there any mitigation when it comes to doing something like this? >> for the pilot, there isn't much mitigation. there are glasses protective eye ware that you can get. the problem is, you can't fly with them throughout the whole flight. as you're coming in for a landing, first of all, you have to purchase the eye ware. you have to get them on and the
simple solution is to enforce the law against the people who do it. the sentences are starting to get pretty stiff. i think the strongest one was handed out in south carolina three years and they mean business. you're going to go to jail for it. >> it's not just mischief. listen to this. >> i see the people involved right now. they're walking in and out of the building. hitting us right now. don't look, george. oh, yeah, you think this is a joke, huh? >> the guy, when that hits you in the eyes, it's a real problem for these pilots, i've had them say it to me, the local guys. >> that's right, it is, usually what causes temporary night blindness. there have been cases outside of the u.s. where it has caused permanent damage. if one case. although it wasn't the pilot, someone playing with the laser caused blindness. but in the united states, because you have this flash blindness is what it's called and the pilots can't see.
it's very, very dangerous, because it usually happens on landing. and that's the time when you've got to have all eyes on the runway and the it's the most dangerous part of flight. and also, the night blindness effect has in all cases in the u.s. cleared up within a matter of time after landing. but overseas, there have been permanent injuries. and if it were just a joke, that's what they're going to complain about when they get jammed up. there's too much reporting on this. it's too well-known it's funny and dangerous. any charges you're okay with? >> oh, yes. they are sticking. and they will stick. the first case i saw was a criminal prosecution, about ten years ago, about 1995, while i was still inspector general. and this came about because of laser shows. but the proprietors of laser shows now have to coordinate with the faa. and the faa has a program to
coordinate places like las vegas which is the first place it happened and disney world. >> this is about somebody being a jackass or worse. what we're learning about metrojet there's now this situation with security, whether the people at tsa or how we look at cargo. i feel like these issues have been around for a while. we are being aware of threats but not acting on them? what's your analysisy. >> well, these issues have literally been around almost as long as flight. we've heard the same issues since september 11, 2001. but there was a decision to be made, it was an intentional decision to lead out airport workers, they get a backgrounding investigation, literally more than a passenger. they get the same screening,
which is ridiculous. >> what's that has been? if you know that cargo is a vulnerability. if you know you're supposed to do the manpower checks, if you know security is such to be a big deal, this just about money? if so, where's the accountability? what are we supposed to do to make it better? >> well, it is about money. it's about the airlines and airports saying it would take too long to do it. we still had pushback from the tsa. sadly, the way we legislate that this country, we base it on the last attack. so people sight this as a major success saying there hasn't been a major attack since 2001. saying, well, we know there are holes. we know they're gaining and they use of of that to make trial runs. we have this warning of metrojet, we have to heed it but sadly after it happens and we close the door. >> mary schiavo, always
appreciate the perspective. alisyn. chris, as you know, michaela and i have learned a lot this morning on the art of chest bump. chris does not approve of the chest bump there -- >> no, i didn't -- >> yes. >> wait for it. wait for it. you educated me. chris will demonstrate the right technique for going mano y mano -- next. >> oh, i will. coughing...sniffling... and wishing you could stay in bed all day.

republican candidates off the debate stage on the trail. hitting each other with the same attacks at a distance this time. immigration now emerging as the issue in the race. donald trump saying he can do it humanely. the rest of the field not convinced. athena following develops from iowa. >> reporter: it is donald trump's hard line stance on illegal immigration that's helped rocket him to the top at poll
polls -- we started off with 17. and one by one they are disappearing. >> trump in new hampshire. chief rival ben carson heading down the coast of virginia, highlighting his religious bonn fieds with evangelicals.a fides with evangelicals. >> amaids deep divide over illegal immigration. trump not backing down from his "build a wall and deport 11 million people" immigration strategy. >> i don't care what trump says. >> jeb bush continuing to attack his plan as unworkable. >> a half a million people basically could double the people processed through our judicial system. it is not possible. >> and proposing a path to citizenship and a guest worker
program. >> having ability for people to legally come back and forth to allow them to work. >> rubio open to the idea. >> after ten years -- carson also weighing in. >> i propose we give them a six month period in which the register. >> there is nothing compassionate about a bunch of politicians saying i'm so compassionate i'm going to give away your job. >> reporter: cuban american ted cruz quick to charge his gop rivals are supporting what he believes well-being amnesty. >> if we just agree with obama and clint on amnesty, republicans are lose. >> i asked bush if he believes most republican primary voters agreed with him on immigration. he said yes. pointing to the applause he got on debate night when he challenged trump's deportation plan. >> thanks so much for laying that out for us. here to talk the politician of immigration and more this morning, host of the hugh hewitt
show, hugh hewitt. good morning. >> hi alisyn. >> we see real points of distinction. who do you think is getting it right in terms of winning the gop primary? who do you think has the hearts and minds of where voters are? >> well i think this will come up as a major issue on our december 15th debate when we are in las vegas. the last debate really before christmas and new year's and the bull season takes over. so i expect there will be some conversation about it between now and then. but i have to disagree with the premise of the question alisyn. i don't think it is that deep of a divide. almost every one of the candidates agree on building a very strong long wall. as does mrs. clinton. most candidates agree on some form of regulation whether it requires people to leave and come back or stay in place. i think more actually the interesting question to emerge
from two nights ago is the debate between rubio and cruz on one side and rand paul on another oh national security. and on this all of the republicans are b united that clinton had a catastrophic tenure. and the nuke rar triad has been decimated by president obama's neglect. and i think you will see them come together on that issue and talk about priorities there. so i tend to resist and push back on monthen beltway narrative that this is going to tear the republicans apart. it is interesting it. certainly matters to maybe 10% of the base. but 90% of the republican primary electorate wants to know who can beat hillary clinton. and that will be the defining niche. >> i'll take your cue, hugh. and we can pivot away for a second to talk about that moment. because it was a really interesting moment between marco rubio and rand paul in terms of military spending and who is the most conservative. so let's play that.
>> and yes i do want to rebuild the american military. i know that rand is a committed isolationist. i'm not. i believe the world is a stronger and a better place when the united states is the strongest military power in the world. >> marco, marco, how is it consive to add a trillion dollar expenditure that you are not paying for? how is it conservative to add a trillion dollars in military expenditures. you cannot be a conservative if you are going to keep promoting new programs that you are not going to pay for? hugh, how is it conservative to add a trillion dollar expenditure? >> see that is what i want to focus in on december 15th. i'm not going tell you who won. i'm going to tell you i hope to have in any question set a bunch of questions a about the nuclear triad. how many carriers do we need? we just find a new contract for
northrop grumman for the b 3 boeing. we have to replace the ohio class submarine. it costs a boat load of dough. this is what i want to get into -- >> sure. what you are saying sounds like you agree with marco rubio. you think that marco rubio won that point. >> it shouldn't. as a debate panelist, i do not have a preferred answer. i think that the republican primary voter wants to know exactly which each of these candidates think about american greatness and they want to know how they are going to a contrast that with hillary clinton presiding over america's restreet in the world. the guy over the first debate was chris christie when he said about china that he would fly air force one over the artificial island. and hillary's name came up 40 times alisyn. yesterday she said in new hampshire that she tried to join the marines when she was first
lady of arkansas. an extraordinary claim. it is simply not -- i hope you investigate it as much as you investigate ben carson. i'll tell you what people are going to jump on is they are going to distinguish how the republican field wants to support the military versus how president obama and secretary clinton. that is where i think the december debate will go. >> we're looking into the hillary clinton's story. more than just yesterday she said it several times over the course of her career. and much like the ben carson story it is hard to pin down these things that are decades old. it is hard to find the person who can definitively say yes that moment happened. so while jeff zeleny did report and they are looking into it, we're going back to her campaign to say can you help us figure out how this happened and exactly when and how. but i want to get back to what you said about immigration. >> i think you need to confront the former first lady and the former secretary of state with the same degree of passion and
doggedness that you did dr. carson. i think everybody in the media has to ask mrs. clinton with the same degree of intensity they asked the republican candidates. she tweeted it would be inhumane to deport 11 million. agree or disagree. people have to ask what are you going to do? are you going to build a wall? what are you going to do about the cartels and the terrorists who attempt to come in from hezbollah from the southern boarder to bomb the saudi arabian ambassador in washington d.c.? she gets to tweet out because media doesn't push back against her the way they push back against republicans and i'm hoping that changes over the course of the next year. >> hugues, i look forward to doing what you are suggesting. i look forward to asking mrs. clinton questions and pursuing her with the same dogged line. she has not come on nu day. we are asking and i look forward to that moment when she agrees. but one more thing about
immigration. it is a rift. i this think you are glossing over a little bit. ted cruz, who is sort of opening this al voe against marco rubio. and because of the gang of eight. because marco rubio was involved with this bipartisan plan with the gang of eight with the new york liberal senator chuck schumer, ted cruz is saying that disqualifies his plan on immigration. it sounds like a rift developing between the gop candidates. >> oh there are disagreements absolutely. and they will talk at great length about them in the december 15th debate and aisle be happy to ask about them. but every sing one of the republicans has a plan. mrs. clinton has a tweet. i think they want to know who is best going to exemplify what a smart policy is going forward on immigration, smart security. national security. mrs. clinton did nothing to stop the visa overstay problem which accounts to 60% of our
immigration problem. she did nothing when she was secretary of state to advocate for border security. she managed to blow the arab spring completely. libya is a mess. syria a nightmare. she's cloouls about putin. they say the issues i think republicans agree on and that is why i want to spend our time. right now the media is trying to define the republican field over immigration. it is my job as the conservative media person to point to the fact that the biggest divide is between the republican field and mrs. clinton and she's out of step with america. that's my job. >> you have done that this morning. we are looking forward to that debate in december. immigration is also sure to come up tonight, 7:00 p.m. eastern only on cnn. there is disturbing video emerging of a situation prosecutors said showed no wrong doing by police. you are about to see a virginia man being tased by cops
repeatedly right outside of a hospital where they had initially brought him. his name is linwood lambert and he later died in police shackles. >> reporter: we received this video through the attorney involved with the lawsuit. and it shows the handcuffed man being tased by police multiple times. though it is unclear exactly how many times he was actually hit with the taser. and the video shows him dying while in police custody, despite the fact the incident happened at the doors of the emergency room. this police video shows three officers in south boston, virginia tasing a man right outside a hospital emergency room. shortly after that man 46-year-old linwood lambert died in police custody. the video begins with officers picking lambert up at a moti mo
after several 911 calls with are made about noise. and because of the way lambert was acting they decided to take him to the hospital for a mental health evaluation. they say he made comments about murdering two people and hiding their bodies in the ceiling. >> we're going to take you to the emergency room and gonna get you looked at make sure you good to go. >> inside the patrol car, police say he kicked out the window. then the video shows lambert running straight into the hospital doors while hand cuffed. he falls to the ground and the officers repeatedly ask him to roll over on to his stomach while threat toing to tase him. lambert then admits he had done drugs. but instead of taking him inside the emergency room, the officers take him to the police station. he's bleeding apparently from breaking the squad car window. by the time they reach the
police station, lambert appears unconscious in the backseat. he was later pronounced dead at the hospital after going into cardiac arrest according to the medical examiners report. the report ruled the cause of death as acute cocaine intoxication. but the family blames police and file a $25 million wrongful death suit alleging the officer's callous disregard for lambert in tasering him multiple times and depriving him of the desperate medical care he needed violated his constitutional rights to be free from cruel and unusual punishment, they say his erratic actions required the use of force. >> and the police department released a statement saying we are vigorously dechblgding this case. cnn attempted to reach both south boston police as well as virginia state police which picked up the investigation of lambert's death. we have not heard back. and there have been no charges
against these police officers since this happened two years ago. >> we'll be watching the story. it is certainly upsetting to see that video. protests over alleged racial discrimination on college campuses across the country. at ithaca college, yale among those joining the call. following a successful campaign to oust officials at the university of missouri. and correspondent paul with the latest for us. >> reporter: hundreds of students staged a walkout yesterday. they were demanding resignation of the president of the college. they chanted no confidence. and new president now. and the students cited what they called his lackluster response to racial insensitivity on campus. and then at yale. what some students describe as
long simmering racial tensions. in one incident, a fraternity reportedly denied a black student entry to a halloween party saying it was for white girls only. the fraternity denied the allegations but a yale senior blogged this is not about halloween costumes or a frat party but a mismatch between what -- the yale we find in brochures and the yale that we experience every day. now the actions at yale and ithaca college, you know, come after earlier this week the chancellor university of missouri resigning. and as you pointed out a second student was arrested for making threats on social media to harm others. he was a student at northwest missouri state university. back you do now. >> thanks so much for all of that. well trz dramatic new video of this plane crash right into an apartment complex in ax ron on tuesday. you can see the twin engine
plane slams into the building. seven passengers, all from one company, and two crew members killed. the ntsb is investigating. and witnesses report hearing the plane's engine cut out and then restart before dying again in the moments before impact. >> we have breaking news. the faa is investigating multiple laser attacks in go major cities over night. three separate jets hit by lasers while landing in dallas. no arrests yet and a trio of tv news choppers targeted in new york city. two men though in custody in connection. charges are pending. you have likely heard all of the fuss about the starbuck's red paper cup this holiday season. well dunkin' donuts may have stolen the holiday cheer. yes. the word joy on the cups and other holiday symbols. stur backs has been taking heat for this cup.
the plane red design. outrage on social media spreading. perhaps the most appropriate rebuttal, perhaps. somebody who did a cup and wrote "if coffee cups define your christmas, honey, it is you that needs jesus." . >> amen. >> right? >> strong retort. >> a good retort. >> great. you also said joy like you say "jeb" simultaneous. >> joy. >> meanwhile one of our top stories today and those how wide spread is the racial tension on u.s. college campuses. unrest at university of missouri. a walk out at ithaca. protests at yale. we'll ask a university professor what is behind the unrest.

all right. here is the situation. do u.s. colleges have a race problem? or has this become a movement out of control? or both. institutions claim to be more diverse than ever. but protests are rising on claims of racism, poor race relations now spurred on by the ouster and of the president and chancellor at the university of missouri. why this things coming to a head now? will they get worse? big questions. jillny cobb, director at -- and staff worker if for new yorker.
thank you for joining us. let me ask you. what do you think about this situation? are we seeing a reflection of the real? or is this a little bit history hysterical. >> i don't think it's hysterical. one thing i have to say is if you work on a campus, if you deal with young people, particularly young people of color, you have heard these stories for a really long time. it is not isolated to simply ithaca or yale or missouri. this is something that, you know, you keep up with the chronicle of higher education we've had these issues some time. >> i'm putting stats up so you know that show 2009, 2014, 2015, cases of racial harassment. 2009, 96. 20 2014, 197. 2015 they are down. the question to you is what are the stories behind the numbers? are they reflective of the reality?
>> you know, here is one thing. there is a great deal of this. as in other instances of crime that are underreported or situations under reported it is very difficult to know the student that is simply ashamed or embarrass order frustrated and doesn't actually come forward. so it is hard to discern that. what we can say is there is a constant low grade fever that there are young people who are consistently experiencing these kind of racial sleights and conflicts. and, you know, every halloween there is an instance of black face. and cumulatively they have an effect. and it is a chilling effect for students who feel like these campuses are not places where they are welcome and not place where is they belong. >> so there is a rational basis for this. then the question of, is the reaction too severe? all of these different campuses now calling for the ouster of leadership. is that the right way do it? >> well i'm not here to
critique. i think people have a right to decide who leads their institution. and certainly in the case of university of missouri there was pretty significant things happeni happening. if a young person had been repeatedly called by, you know, the infamous ethnic slur, racial slur. and there was kind of an arthritic bureaucratic response from the institution. then yeah. it does go to the heart of people not having faith in their leadership. and as i understand it there had been other concerns about president wolff. so i don't think that we should gown the road of questioning people's sanity. i think that only further indicates exactly what people are talking about, that you are in a situation where you feel that you are isolated the people have made you feel unwelcome, yet when you respond people tell you that perhaps you are not perceiving this correctly. people who were not in that situation nonetheless, tell you that you are not perceiving this correctly or perhaps you are hysterical or over reacting.
>> how much weight do you put in the nature of response? if the rationale is justified. but then how do you deal with the reaction to it and how it's handled in terms of instigating change? >> i think the one thing that is important is this is a college campus and people would not be admitted if we didn't have faith in the intellectual abilities so it goes counter to the very purpose of institution of higher education to say well you have this perception but you really don't know what you're talking about. so i think for me in my classroom, the one thing that i presume is that a i have room foufl rational intelligent individuals and we're trying to come to some further understanding of the world around us. that is how we proceed and it's the same in other circumstances. >> it becomes a sensitivity issue on each side about how far you go, what do you do, the appropriateness of the response. we have the situation at ithaca where supposedly a person of color on the panel while
describing her motivation for am bags said something about hog having like a savage drive. the moderator echoed that categorizing what each person had looked to for the source of their enthusiasm and called her a savage. and then was called for other protest you have to get out. is there a point where you start seeing everything through the lens of bias? >> well i mean i can't speak specifically to the ithaca situation. what i think is kind of interesting here is that, you know, at what point do we say perhaps there is a "there" there. at what point do we grant credibility? what we tend to do is talk about one isolated instance. so this is one particular thing that happens at ithaca. and i'm much more concerned with context. i'm a historian. i say well there is one isolated incidence and this is contrary to the general climate of this campus. then i think the incident won't go anywhere. but if that incident winds up speaking to a broader reality
that taps into something people relate to, then sometimes it is just one small situation that sparks a much greater response because things have been building up long before that. so i don't know about that about ithaca. but i do know in other circumstances this is the narrative that we've heard from students again and again. i've been teaching for almost 20 years at this point. and this has ban consistent theme when i talk with students of color. not simply african americans. asian american, muslims after 911, they have had these sort of experiences on predominantly white campuses. >> that is a really helpful lens of perspective on this. is it an isolated event? or is it a single event that reflects a general feeling that goes to me vents and experiences? >> what you do think?

because the smugglers are packing them into these flimsy, barely sea worthy rubber beginningies. one of them there from a landing that took place earlier today. that conference in malta focusing on what's happening in africa with pledges of around 1.8 billion to try to help african nations cope with the crisis there. when we talk about what's happening here with the war zones of syria, iraq, afghanistan just like a lack at the life vest. that is but a fraction of what you will find littering this shoreline. and those key issues. those wars that are driving people to leave their home countries because they don't believe that they have any other chance in life but to try to make this very treacherous journey. that is why so many continuously come here. and if you look at the numbers that they have been putting out there, they said that in 2015 the first ten month, 540,000 made this crossing.
that is 13 times the number in that same time span that made the journey back in 2014. >> heartbreaking reporting. thank you for bringing it to us. we appreciate that. back at home nearly a dozen high school football players have died from game-related injuries this year. why is this number spiking? how can that trend be reversed? diabetes, steady is exciting.

point? take a look. >> for as long as he can remember, eric wanted to play football. >> what was it about football. >> i'd always try to go push over kids whenever i would go to the park or something when i was a kid. i don't know why but maybe that is something that just made me fall in love with football. >> the day he came home from his first tackle practice he was beaming and he just said it is the first time i can hit someone and not get in trouble. he loved it. >> everyone knew eric was good. a real standout. >> very good player. play make ore. good speed. good ball skills. made plays in every game. >> what eric and his parents didn't know was that this seemingly healthy boy had a make problem with his heart. just seconds of a touchdown scored late in the third quarter of this game, eric felt something unusual in his chest.
>> i was running down the field and all of a sudden just like hit me all of a sudden. i lost my breathe. my heart was pounding almost coming out of my chest and i tried -- i made it off the field and just collapsed. >> reporter: the first thought was a possible concussion. but in fact eric had nearly suffered a sunday cardiac arrest. now, if you are shocked, consider this. a young athlete dies from a cardiac incident every three days in the united states. that is according to a 2011 university of washington study. while concussions can lead to long-term neurological problems, under lying heart problems are much more likely to kill. and fast. for many, the first time they ever sense anything is wrong is just seconds before their heart fails. for eric, a simple ekg revealed wolf parksen white syndrome.
wpw. the heartbeats wildly due to abnormal electrical patterns. it is onele of several congenital conditions that often go undetected. >> here is the problem. it may be hard to see but this little downward slope. it seems minor but that was the problem that eric had that could potentially lead to a catastrophic issue with his heart. >> reporter: eric was treated successfully with catheter ablati ablation. but his story and others raises a controversial issue in sports. if eric's preexisting heart problem could have been identified with a simple ekg, why isn't this test made available to all young athletes? eric is back today a year later for a follow-up test with his doctor. >> they give you credit for essentially saving their son. >> no that's not me. i just minor portion of that. >> well you found something that
was an abnormality that could have led to a sunday cardiac death. >> yes it could have. >> and the doctor is firmly in the camp that ekg screening could have detected this ain erc and countless others perhaps. current screening has no ekg. and with any screening test there are limitations, false positives, false negatives and the costs. anywhere between 25 to $150 approximator test multiplied by nearly 8 million high school students playing sports. putting it all together, the american heart association does not recommend ekgs as a screening tool telling us, initial screening using electron cardiograms to detect the disease has not been shown to
safe lives. >> i don't agree with that. i think any child who is involved in middle school, high school sports should have an electrocardiogram. >> to make the case, vethe doct and others point to studies like this one out of italy where ekg screening is mandatory. here they found 89% reduction in sudden cardiac deaths between ages 12 and 35 among athletes. it is no surprise but jim and bridgette are advocates for ekg screening. >> it takes five minutes. it is very easy. it is not evasive. >> on today's exam everything checks out. good news for eric. >> i always tell my children they should play to their heart's content. but with a healthy heart. >> reporter: and by the afternoon, eric is once against back on the -- once again back
on the field. >> we're doing it with the context of sports and football. but really it's beyond that, doc. this is about having a young heart but doesn't mean it is a perfect heart. and anything that is high energy could trigger this sundddenness. what is the chance of getting these to be made more routine? >> right now the american heart association is not in favor of this because of false positives and false negatives. and then the cost issue. as i mentioned 8 million high school athletes. chris you make an important point. the american heart association also says, look, this occurs in the general population. not just among high school athletes. do you screen those people as well? they are still trying to figure this out. but there are many who say we should be screening high school athletes. that is when a lot of these sorts of heart problems are uncovered. the body is really active now for the first time for a lot of these people playing a high school sport.
it could unmask a heart problem that existed all along but had never been a problem for them. >> and as you argue cost is about how much profits companies are allowed to make not what is the best course of good health. thanks very much. appreciate the good reporting. we'll continue to story. >> so we've been seeing this case of -- recent cases in fact erupting in new york and colorado high schools about sexting. we're going take a look when we come back.
two 14-year-olds in new york are facing felony charges and twenty others suspended for sharing a video of a student engaged in a sex act. it follows the case in colorado that involved hundreds of nude photos shared using a secret app. why are teens suddenly engaging in this sort of online behavior? i guess it is not necessarily sunday. a board certified pediatric therapist is here. and i feel like i need to hug every parent of a tanger right now. this is real, difficult and hard to get our minds around. give me an idea. this idea of sexting. what is the psychology behind what is motivating these kids to do it? >> first there is a lot of psychology but to be clear it is really easy to sext. >> put a smart phone in a teenager's hand. >> and you are sexting. so right now in 2015 we click and post? >> immediate. >> you don't say do you like this picture, do you think it is
appropriate? >> no thoughtfulness. let's be honest. we weren't -- >> no i. grown ups we click and post. e understand why sexting is o pervasive. but teenagers are the so prime to sex. they don't have a developed brain. they are more impulsive. they are trying to figure out their sexual assault and indicating and who they are. and they are froen peer pressure. >> this a peer pressure thing? o is there an aspect of it. >> there is an aspect of it. you want to be more grown up. you want to fit in. you want the boy to like you. think about it. you put ill -- >> [ inaudible ]. >> and poof. >> it occurred to me that in a way in terms -- because everyone is panicking. what do with edo? is it thee do? is it the your -- >> i want this discussion to start at age 10. >> so this is the new essentially what you are
thinking like new sex education. >> so sex education in 2015 has to talk about your digital footprint. it has to talk about your sexual assault. it h -- talk about your sexuality. and that discussion has to start at age ten. by age 16 the kids have their phones, they are sexting. it is hard. the parent is not there. 16-year-olds are looking at me being like yeah, like my child is going to give me their phone. >> and you are not going to take your kid's phobe away. that is one thing parents are mulling over. i do just confiscate it. but you ban me from going out -- i'll sneak out -- we know how teenage minds operate. i get that. we saw in new york, the superintendent sent a parent -- sent a letter to the parents urging them to be aware, to educate themselves on what kids are doing. that is important. >> that is really important. he also suspended kids who received texts. >> what do you think about that? >> my opinion is not that you should have any type of record
for receiving a text but any understanding is he suspended them because they broke the honor code. >> didn't report it. >> and that is important. i don't know whether they should be suspend order not but it is important. if you get a sext or hear about it, you have to report it. you have to tell your parents and you have to tell the schools and the schools have to take many you have more responsibility. if you look at colorado case, the schools don't know what to do with this. we weren't taught tow o manage this. >> anden the other side parents appearing on the photo vault apps. they are actually an app designed to hide inappropriate content. these things are specifically designed for deception. >> these ghost app, what they are telling you as the parent is it is not about policing your children. give it up. try, but you are not going to be successful if they are hiding. it is more about the conversations you are having with them so they feel comfortable saying hey i'm feeling pressure or look, this is the image that i got. can you help me manage it. >> right. we've only got a quick amount of
time left. how do you start that conversation with your kid? even at 10 or 11 or 12? what is the opening line? how do you go there? >> i'm okay with startic talk about your digital footprint. talking about how you want to be online and wlabd of images you should reflect online. >> it doesn't go away. >> understand it stay there is and talk about what kind of person do you want to be? do you want to be that sexy person? the boy needs to like you because of who you are, not because of the image you send. and goline and talk to your kids about what a sext is. parents and kids disagree as to what a sext is? and also adds to the consequences and the repercussions which we're seeing now. good stuff is next. this is brad.
