tv Anderson Cooper 360 CNN December 9, 2015 8:00pm-9:01pm PST
that's it for us tonight. thanks for joining us. see you back here tomorrow night. "ac 360" right now. thanks for joining us tonight. we broke the news on the program last night that the husband and wife mass killing may not have been the first deadly act the husband was plotting. tonight we're learning that a friend who bought a pair of assault rifles the killer couple used is talking, telling authorities he and the husband were planning an attack three years ago but called it off. we'll bring you late details on that. we begin, though, tonight with donald trump and the heartburn he's bringing to his own party and the threats he's making.
>> it a two-way street. they said they will be honorable. so far i can't tell you if they are, but the establishment is not exactly being very good to me. but i'm leading in every poll by a lot. it looks like i'm going to win. my whole life has been about winning. i'm not like so many of the other people that you talk to that are essentially losers, okay? i know how to win. i intend to win. it's the best way of beating the democrats if i get the nomination. in the fox poll that i'm sure you saw, i'm way ahead of hillary. head to head, i'm ahead of
hillary. i will beat hillary. the one person hillary doesn't want to run against, and i know a lot of people inside because i get along with democrats, with republicans, with liberals, with everybody. the one person they don't want to run against is me. only me. >> i want this plain spoken for the viewer. what do you mean if they break this pledge then you'll break the pledge. what do you mean by that? >> if they don't treat me with a certain amount of decorum and respect. if they don't treat me as the frontrunner, by far the frontrunner. if the playing field is not level, then certainly all options are open. but that's nothing i want to do. >> how will you know that? what determines that? >> i think i'll know that over a period of a number of months. we'll go through the primaries, we'll see what happens and i'll make a determination. i would imagine they'll treat me properly because i'm leading by a lot.
>> that was donald trump. by any account, you heard why he's successful, and if you heard republican insiders, he's dangerous accident dangerous because of what they fear is catastrophic damage he could do to the party. and to make matters more complicated or introspective, depending on your opinion, donald trump doesn't seem to care. al basaro, co-chair of the veterans coalition, also conservative columnist katherine parker and also a cnn commentator. i appreciate all of you being with us. kathleen, you wrote in your latest column that trump is, quote, the most dangerous person to emerge on the u.s. political
scene in decades. it's one thing to say he's offensive as some pundits have, or off-putting, but dangerous? how do you back that up? >> i think he has reached the point on being dangerous on multiple levels. i think the way he's speaking about muslims, trying to ban them from entry into the country, and otherwise marginalizing them, is helpful, actually, to our enemy. because the advantage we've had over other countries, for example, in europe which have been -- have suffered more attacks than we have from terrorists, is that we have better assimilated our -- all people, including muslims. what trump is actually doing, is by marginalizing them, by setting them aside as these others that can't be trusted or whatever, he's really kind of creating a second-class citizenship, which is then going to become more easily -- there's a greater risk of there being radicalized and recruited by the islamic state. it's a very dangerous movement
in terms of our overseas attempts to fight isil and trying to keep muslims in the country, that fortunately, are citizens, for the most part. that's very dangerous, but it's also extremely dangerous as to the republican party. this is the last thing they need is for someone to basically suggest that we are not a welcoming country. we do not -- we don't really like people who are not exactly like us. i'll let you talk. >> reverend, you're a trump supporter. i talked to general mark hurtling who served in iraq for years, commanded u.s. forces in northern iraq for a long time. he said, look, just from a strategic standpoint alone, this hurts america's fighting efforts overseas. you yourself are a veteran. you hear former vice president cheney saying trump's proposal goes against everything we stand for, everything we believe in. what do you say to that?
>> i think some people need to get their head out of the sand. they use words like decisive, inflammatory, unamerican, dangerous. don't you realize that these people in other countries want to kill americans? what don't you understand? many of my fellow veterans are being shot at recruiting stations, on bases, they're unarmed. i think katherine needs to wake up and smell the coffee. it's about time we have a presidential candidate that is bringing up the issues that are important to the american people, and he's determined to protect the american people. something is wrong with all these talking heads, the gop establishment. >> representative, though, you compared this to what franklin roosevelt did to the japanese in the united states in world war ii? >> do you know why i did it? let me explain why i said that. because i utilized that the president at the time made a decision that he felt was right that's in accordance with the constitution of the safety of
the people of the united states. it was a right decision? i think it was a bad decision. but that president, fdr, at that time, did the right thing. >> you're comparing him to something which is kind of universally described as a black stain in american history, one that ronld reald reagan actuall apologized for and paid reparations to the descendants of the japanese. >> what didn't you understand about what i just said? i said the president ultimately made a decision. >> but you're comparing donald trump to a decision you don't support that you said is a bad idea. so what donald trump is doing, you're comparing it to what you yourself say is a bad idea. >> no, what i'm saying is at the time -- and i wasn't there. i was a baby. i don't even think i was born. anyway, at the time, the decision was made by a president whose best interests was for the
country. history later on makes it whether it was good or bad. at the time people didn't think it was bad. just like ricotta did. i was in the marine corps when they were sending people home. liberals were praising carter. >> actually, it was unconstitutional to do that. >> yes, down the road they did that. they did down the road, but at the time. >> kevin, what about this. >> that's right, we regret it. but if you look at the immigration act of 1952, donald trump is 100% right what he said on what he can do on political groups that want to overturn the country. >> but, sir, there was a time when black people didn't have the right to vote in this country, and plenty of people thought that was a good idea, and in retrospect, people now realize that was abhorrent.
it was awful. >> i agree with you, and republicans came forward and fixed it under article 13. >> kevin, i want to get you in on this. what do you think, a, about this idea of trump's, and what do you fear it may be doing to the gop? >> well, i very much worry that it reunions the profile of a party that in order to flourish has to be a party of ideas. donald trump doesn't have any ideas. what donald trump has is a lot of inflamed rhetoric. i also think it's a party that ought to be unifying and donald trump is very dirisive. donald trump is trying to flourish in this election by segmenting people out and having them fight amongst each other. i think that's the biggest challenge that a donald trump candidacy would present to a republican party, that we should have learned our lessons from past elections that we need to do a better job of bringing more people into the campaign.
he wouldn't do that. particularly on the ideas part. everybody keeps saying, donald trump, supporters of donald trump say he's bringing it up and he's talking about the issues people care about. people have been talking about these issues for a long time, but they put forward substantive ideas. donald trump merely plays off people's fears, and he does it in sound bites for television, and he does it bordering on fantasia instead of dealing with real problems the country faces. >> a lot of people agree with donald trump, when you look at the polls, and for his supporters, this idea of banning muslims has a lot of support. >> right. well, he's appealing to this sort of nativist instinct that is common only to a certain percentage of the party. if you talk to people at other levels within the party -- and i'm not talking about establishment necessarily, but just people who are actually more open-minded and more familiar with the constitution and the definition of what it is to be an american, they are not at all interested in seeing a donald trump nomination.
so -- besides which, of course, he can't win the national election, so it's a pointless endeavor to put him in as the nominee. furthermore, i would not be surprised, anderson, if you begin to see very soon presidential candidates on the republican side stepping up to the plate and saying, we are not going to support donald trump if else the nominee. i suspect that's going to start happening fairly soon, and that will change everything. >> we've seen some of that. >> well -- >> representative, though -- >> can i add to this. >> what i actually want to ask you is, it seems like the support is coming from grassroots for donald trump, a lot of the establishment republicans, establishment conservatives are pushing back. do you think their opinion doesn't really matter in all this, that the power centers are shift to go the folks who support trump? >> no. >> as an old marine, we go by lessons learned. i've been involved with politics since i was five years old.
i was a democrat. grandfather came from massachusetts. i grew up with tip o'ne'neill a the kennedys. times have changed. donald trump is making up lessons learned. if you look at donald trump's campaign supporters in new hampshire, we're the real conservatives, we're the real liberty people, we're the real representatives in people that are concerned with our country. these people are worried about power, okay, the gop establishment. >> how is donald trump a real conservative when he has donated and supported the past candidacies of harry reid, hillary clinton and nancy pelosi? and at the same time, he's actually been in favor of socialized medicine? how is that conservative? >> when i was a head of an italian restaurant, i was a republican.
democrats, independent, libertarian, their money is green. when you're a businessperson -- >> these are the leaders of liberal policies and lib raeral agenda. >> you lost an election. you lost an election and learn from it. >> so, representative, you believe donald trump, though, is a true conservative? >> what's the lesson in supporting nancy pelosi, harry reid and hillary clinton? >> representative? >> the establishment think the people are stupid. the establishment, they want to pick and choose who we want. >> how is that conservative? >> donald trump, on second amendment issues, he's pro-life, he wants to build a wall. many talking heads for years and years said they're going to build a wall and nothing. look at the veterans. my fellow veterans are dying, and the establishment has done nothing. >> representative baldasara, i
appreciate -- >> it's about time we had someone who speaks up. coming up next, anti-muslim acts like a pig's head thrown at a mosque in philadelphia caught on surveillance camera. we talk to the mayor of philadelphia who has some strong words, mayor mike nutter who recently used some blunt language to describe donald trump. he joins us tonight. and we wonder why the friend of the male san bernardino killer bought him a pair of assault rifles. we say possible -- and i mean possible -- details ahead. ♪

[so i use quickbooks and run mye entire business from the cloud. i keep an eye on sales and expenses from anywhere. even down here in the dark i can still see we're having a great month. and celebrate accordingly. i run on quickbooks.that's how i own it.
we spoke a moment ago about the impact of donald trump's words on the political race, but some people believe how america may behave towards muslims. yesterday a pig's head was tossed a at a mosque in philadelphia. mayor michael nutter singled out donald trump and his plan for some blunt criticism. we want to warn you, he used some rough language to describe the republican frontrunner. here's what he said. >> he's an asshole. i apologize, reverend.
people on the religious community, i apologize. how can i take seriously any foreign policy idea from someone like him? i mean, it's impossible. so he has no idea what he's talking about. >> mayor nutter also said if he could, he'd like to bar trump from entering his city. his remarks entering this trump tweet. mayor nutter in philadelphia who is doing a terrible job should be ashamed in using such a disgusting word when referring to me. low life. thank you so much for joining us, mayor. calling donald trump an a-hole, a madman, a danger to society. do you stand by what you said? >> i said what i said and i meant it. it was in response to a question about whether president obama was doing enough, and donald trump questioning the president's efforts to fight isis and isil. and that was my response. i did apologize to the clergy
who were at that press conference, but that's as far as it goes. it was an impromptu remark. for the rest of the press kom , conference, i was fully above board and everything. here's the problem. even leading republicans have denounced comments by donald trump, and as you led into the story, there was a very serious desecration of the al-axa mosque. i had to ask mohammad shahara and numerous clergy from a variety of faiths to come, which was the primary reason for that press conference. donald trump, in his insane remarks, were an add-on because they all happened about the same time. so the desecration of the mosque is under investigation by the philadelphia police department, and we're seeking answers, and we want to get the person who did that hateful action.
at the same time, it is not helpful in the rhetoric of whether to campaign or general commentary that a presidential candidate proposes to ban muslims from coming into the united states of america, including those who are already american citizens, some of whom are serving valuable yaiantly i military and have died for our country, and it's just the most insane kind of idea, way beyond american values. donald trump has crossed the rubicon of traditional american values and is still in a reality tv mode and thinks that all of this is just fun and games. it's not, when you run for high office, to try to lead the united states of america. you have to be much more serious in your words and much more sensitive in what you say.
>> in terms of words, though, you also said at that conference, quote, he's taken a page from the playbook of hitler, demonized a group, blamed that group for the country's problems and then seeking to ban or eliminate that group seeking an answer to a problem that doesn't exist. really, comparing donald trump to hitler? >> the comparison was about the playbook, it is about the actions. as students of history know, that is exactly what happened back at that time and other atrocities that have taken place in this world over time. donald trump is trying to demonize muslims. he's trying to demonize the islamic faith and blame this group of people for the problems of our country and then seek to ban or eliminate them from the united states of america. that is an exact page out of that kind of playbook. it is dangerous rhetoric, it is negative at the highest level, and that's not what american politics should be about.
the true muslim people in the united states of america and internationally, true followers of islam, are peaceful people. they are loving people. they take care of their families and their children. they are an important component of american and international society. and he is reckless with his language. we are trying to seriously conduct a presidential election. we have a standing in the world for the many, many things that america does well, and we don't always do everything right, but we actually have -- people pay attention to what happens in the united states of america. they pay attention to presidential elections, and people who are, you know, quote, unquote, leading in the polls or sucking up every possible piece of air time. and he is being reckless and irresponsible. people in his own republican party are denouncing his activities. he will be in new york at a pennsylvania-related event. you already talked about what's happened here in philadelphia,
and he should not be a part of that. he needs to apologize to the muslim community and america and internationally. >> i appreciate your time, mayor nutter. thank you. just ahead, we have breaking news in the san bernardino investigation. we now know who helped the male shooter plan a 2012 attack that was apparently never carried out. that's what he's telling investigators. whether or not that's true, there's some questions about that from investigators themselves. we'll also find out about the questions u.s. officials failed to ask the wife before letting her get a visa into the country. that's today? we'll be with her all day to see how it goes. after the deliveries, i was ok. now the ciabatta is done and the pain is starting again. more pills? seriously? seriously. all these stops to take more pills can be a pain. can i get my aleve back? for my pain, i want my aleve. get all day minor arthritis pain relief with an easy open cap.

breaking news in the san bernardino investigation. enrique marquez, the neighbor who bought the guns used in the terror attack, have been giving details about the attack that he and the male shooter allegedly planned in 2012 but didn't carry out. this is before the san bernardino attackers met and married. investigators are also learning more about when the couple became radicalized. some of that information coming from marquez himself. there are also new details about the vetting of the wife before
she was granted that veeisa to enter the united states. the picture coming into focus. it's disturbing, to say the least. let's talk about this guy, enrique marquez, and this alleged 2012 terror plot. >> this is from enrique marquez, and he's been talking to investigators giving them a wealth of information the last few days, and he talked about how the two had a target in california. he told investigators they had scoped out a target but they got spooked because there had been a round of terror acts in that area, so they decided not to do it. those guns were later used in the san bernardino attack, but marquez denies any involvement in that attack. he told investigators that he was radicalized along with farook as early as 2011. it's important to point out he checked himself into a mental health hospital right after the attack. officials need to corroborate
what he is telling them, verify those details, which is difficult to do. also important to point out that investigators are looking at the circumstances surrounding his marriage to a woman of russian descent. that is under scrutiny. this woman came to the u.s. from russia in 2009, and according to law enforcement officials, they're looking into whether their marriage was legit. she didn't show up, by the way, for her appointment this week with an immigration official. anderson? >> there is also word going around about tashfeen malik's form. >> the official says it is not mandatory that line of questioning be asked unless red flags come up during the dhs check before the interview. but both the state department and dhs say this is a shared
responsibility. plenty of blame to go around here. but with the visa she came in on, they more question whether this relationship was legitimate. in this case clearly they thought it was. >> even though they have background checks for this process, it's about whether or not the marriage is legitimate, not the political leanings of somebody or religious leanings or idealogical leanings. we also learned that the fbi believers the two attackers were radicalized before they even met, which is really interesting. >> that's right. and we've been reporting it was believed they have been radicalized even before isis came on the stage, and now james comb comey, the director of the fbi, said they became radicalized in 2014 before they were dating, before they met. they were discussing jihad, apparently. clearly this has gone back several years. we know they had data on the computer, cell phones, and data
from u.s. intelligence agencies, but they haven't been able to retrieve data from those two damaged cell phones found in the trash can and they haven't found that hard drive from the house. anderson? >> thank you for your reporting. the picture that comes into focus gets more and more disturbing now that we know the two killers were radicalize brd they even met and planned their attack in the home they shared with the defendant's mother. hard to believe no one around them knew what they were up to. the author of "why islam needs a refer ma reformation now." i spoke to her. >> the fbi director says there was talk of jihad between these two around 2013, and now this neighbor, there -- he claims there was a potential plot in 2012. this is before isis. >> that is before the caliphate
was declared. it is not adequate to say they were radicalized by isis. it means they were radical before that. what it tells me is what i've been telling you and everyone else all along, that hundreds and hundreds of thousands of muslims are radicalized. >> around the world. >> around the world and in the united states of america as well. the big question for us is -- and again, i don't like the word radicalize. it's about people who have become more pius and tend to observe islam critically. they try to fall in the example of the prophet mohammad literally. that's what we've come to call radical and extreme. the people who have that mentality and that mindset are not a minority and they're not a fringe minority. >> and they don't necessarily need a group like isis. that might sort of give them
focus, it might give them a name to claim allegiance to, but, i mean, as you said, this was happening before isis had a caliphate. >> exactly. i think these people already believed what they executed. and i think the big problem is because the number of people who believe in this within muslim communities and families, definitely not all, but it is so large that these individuals who want to take, you know, an action, to take it beyond believing and beyond practicing but actually want to kill people, they have a large enough group to hide in. >> do you believe -- when people say, look, we had no idea. friends, family. it does seem hard to believe that somebody comes up with an idea like this, a plan like this, and doesn't talk to others about it. whether those people believe they'll act out on it or not or whether they're somewhat sympathetic or whatever the case may be. >> i don't believe it. it is the same people, some of the families who say when their
children sneak off to isis and they're caught at an airport or when they've said, oh, my goodness. i didn't know my child was planning to do this. i think there is a great deal, and here is the uncomfortable truth, really. there is a great deal of consensus in times of belief. some of the family members may not want themselves to execute an act of jihad. but if a fellow believer is doing that, and he's investing in martyrdom, then who are you as a believer to stop him, or even worse, to report him to the infidel authorities? once you understand that mentality and that process, then we can get to, okay, how can we perhaps persuade these people these idea are bad? but to do that, we have to call a spade a spade. >> when you hear donald trump say ban all muslims from coming to the united states until we figure out what the heck is going on, whatever that means,
what do you think? >> i was a politician, and i know that when a politician or candidate makes remarks like this, and it resonates, that it's not only what the candidate was saying. i think it's a bad idea. i don't think we should do what trump is saying we do, even if we could do it. i don't think we can, but even if we could do it, i think it's a bad approach. and it creates false promise where a lot of american young voters think that if they elect trump, that he has the solution to this long-time idealogical war. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. just ahead, more breaking news about the san bernardino terrorist killers. new questions tonight about whether they're marriage was designed for terror and whether they exploited a weakness in the u.s. visa system to carry out their deadly aims.

as we reported earlier, the san bernardino shooter in the terror attack was not asked about interviews before coming to the united states. the question was whether the marriage was just a sham to get her into the country. tom joins me now with a closer look at how you get k-1 veisasv. how does the process work? >> if someone wants to get married in the united states, they need to fill out these papers. six pages filled out. what does the government want to know? they want to know the sponsor, the person here, is a u.s. citizen. they want to know the couple is planning to marry within 90 days, and they want evidence of a real relationship. they need to have at least seen each other in person once in the past two years. beyond that, they'll require a valid passport for the person coming in, a birth certificate, a death or divorce certificate from a previous spouse.
everything that shows where this person lived formerly to make sure they're not a criminal, and they need evidence of employment or income so we're not talking b about a couple that will immediately not be able to support themselves. the couple can pay a filing fee, there will be extensive background checks to make sure they know who this person is. and if you make it through all of that, then you get to an actual face-to-face interview with this person at an embassy or consulate somewhere in the country where they'll really probe into all these answers, all these details to find out is this really the person we think it is and are they really coming for the reason intended. anderson? >> it's really focused on whether it's a very -- legitimate marriage, not necessarily the radical beliefs of a person. the background check, how long does this process actually take?
from a lot of these countries that people are coming from, they can't really do a full background check because they don't have access to the intelligence service in syria or pakistan or wherever it may be. >> you're absolutely right, and it is a fast process compared to other visas. about a year, maybe more, maybe less depending on the specifics. obviously they would like to catch any misrepresentations or any flags about bigger problems out there. but i will note, not a whole lot of these are approved. if you look back here at 2004, about 29,000, a little under back then. it's moved up and there was a spike last year to about 44,000. but people who have been through this say it really is a pretty rigorous process, and these numbers point to the fact that it's not so easily used for improper or illegal purposes. anderson? >> tom, thank you very much. joining me now former fbi inspector and bob bear and executive director shawn stanley. chris, how restrictive do you
think these visas are? it really depends on whether the marriage itself is legitimate. >> you hit it on the head, anderson. i think it's a gaping hole in our immigration system. i mean, gosh, they don't question where she came from, knowing full well that it's a terrorist breeding ground. you know, i'm just baffled by the whole thing, anderson. even though they went through some sort of due diligence vetting process, it was focused on all the wrong things, it seems to me. >> bob, even in the case -- and i think you and i have talked about this before -- but say she was from pakistan, if there is not communication with the intelligence services in pakistan, how effective can any background screening really be? >> exactly, anderson. the person shows up at your window, you ask them where they're from. they're very cursory interviews. even if you were to ask them if they're radicalized, they're going to say no. they don't just give the files
of people they suspect having been radicalized. neither have the saudis, a bunch of countries don't. so we're at the mercy of what this person says. if she had said i'm not a radicalizer, i'm just a normal person. these are all approved, basically. these kbs for american citizens is a gaping hole for getting people in this country. if she was sent, these people are smart. >> chris, new information today about the couple's neighbor saying he was part of a planning of a potential attack as far back as 2012. what do you make of that? first of all, the fbi is cautioning him, this guy did check himself into a mental health facility shortly after the attacks and it's not clear, i mean, if he's being on the up and up or if he's got other problems going on. what do you make of it? >> well, if everything we're hearing is true, anderson, and
that they did, in fact, try to select some targets in 2012 and marquez was fully aware of the intense radicalization of farook, i don't think it's a question of whether he is going to get charged, i think it's a question of when and how much consideration they'll give him for his cooperation, because that's full knowledge. then he provides them with two ar-15s. he's definitely an aider and abetter based on the facts i've heard, if they are true. >> it goes beyond, iv've heard some things but i didn't really know. if they were outwardly talking about having to attack themselves and going after this guy, it certainly seems he would be culpable, no? >> at the very least, an aider and abetter, or even a co-conspirator. they'll listen to him as long as
he wants to talk, but at some point, he'll end up in handcuffs if what we're hearing is true, and i think there actually is. >> it appears they got information from electronic intercepts. how likely is that? how important do you think that could be? >> electronic intercepts prior or post? >> they were prior, i believe. >> so if they're talking about electronic intercepts -- >> the information is thin on it, i should say. >> if they are electronic intercerpt. >> they're going to analyze it and what follow-up may have been done. as you know, the intelligence component of this is so critical in preventing any kind of attack, the ability to intercept communications and use it for lead purposes from a disruptive perspective is really critical. >> bob, when it comes to timing of when these two individuals were radicalized well before the
islamic state had a caliphate, before they were considered a major terror threat, they were on the radar but not to the degree certainly, they didn't have the power they do now in the region. what does that tell you -- i mean, i just find it interesting that it may not have been isis per se that made them -- that got them radicalized, but they just decided to -- they became radicalized and decided isis is the best ones to pledge allegiance to. >> well, anderson, this doesn't surprise me at all. we spend way too much time parsing these groups, the difference betweenal koo al qae the muslim brotherhood, and the fact is military jihad is just jihad, and you can pick and choose which group you may want to belong to. she may have come here from a militant group in pakistan, very violent. she may have been recruited by them, got here and decided,
well, the most propaganda value is the islamic state, and she did that facebook posting in the middle of the attack. which scared a lot of americans. so what she believed in, who knows, but it's the whole idea of violence that these people adhere to and their defense of their form of islam, and that's all they care about. they don't care about organizations. up next, anger on the streets of chicago. protesters demanding the resignation of the mayor. details on that. we'll take you there. at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like ordering wine equals pretending to know wine. pinot noir, which means peanut of the night.

quite a day in chicago of the hundreds of protesters marched in the streets demanding the resignation of mayo mayor emanuel. how they see the shooting of laquan mcdonald. the mayor apologized for how the city handled mcdonald's death. they said the apology wasn't enough. what was it like out there, martin? >> reporter: good evening, anderson. some protests continuing. this is just outside the chicago police headquarters. there is a monthly meeting going on and protesters are definitely inside there. many of those who are inside now were outside on the streets earlier today. and it was impressive for how
long it went on. this started at noon, shortly after the mayor, as you know, made his apology. but it seemed that the more attention that the protesters got, the more that they carried on. it went for five hours. and it went through some of the most important neighborhoods of downtown chicago, including the gold coast, probably one of the most affluent american mile. probably attracting the attention of many bystanders but also seemed to be in a loose coordination with the police department. not the cooperation, but clearly police were there almost in the same numbers as protesters, about 200. they were blocking intersections and leaping ahead to block other intersections as the protesters moved away. those people who were held were released, and it ended all very
peacefully. they want rahm emanuel to leave, but so far the mayor hasn't done that. >> there is a lot more happening tonight. randi kaye, here's a 360 bulletin. officer william porter testified that he didn't realize freddie gray was injured until the final stop of the van ride. mr. gray suffered a broken neck during that ride. porter is the first officer to stand trial. in a colorado courtroom, prosecutors filed 179 felony charges against robert louis dear who is accused of killing three people at a planned parenthood clinic in colorado springs. dear disrupted the hearing repeatedly, at one point saying, i am a warrior for the babies. and 65 boston college students who got sick after eating at a chipotle restaurant in boston have tested positive for the norovirus. more than 120 students in all became ill. an e. coli outbreak linked to other chipotle restaurants have
