tv New Day Saturday CNN January 9, 2016 3:00am-6:01am PST
. the world's most wanted drug lord, el chapo, chaptured in a deadly shootout. breaking overnight. we now know where he's heading. plus, we're hearing from a family of a refugee arrested in texas with his alleged ties with isis. his wife, claiming his innocence. >> and at a donald trump event, a muslim woman kicked out and booed by the audience after standing in silent protest. your "new day" starts right now. >> this is cnn breaking news --
>> we are looking at new video of el chapo moments after his capture. you see him here after he was captured after that shootout yesterday after being on the run for more than 180 days. >> good morning, we're so happy to have you with us. i'm kristi paul. you see how they stopped and made him look at cameras hot. humiliating for a guy considered a drug lord as she. >> after skaeng, after that first capture. i'm victor blackwell. we are beginning with break news out of mexico. this morning, el chapo is back at the prison from which he escaped last july. we just showed you the new video of the drug kingpin. take a look at it again, just before being transported to mexico city. you see this pause, his head was
turned by one of the marines to you see here, minutes after he was caught by the mexican officials there in los mochis is after a deadly shootout and a frantic chase through sewers after he tried to escape through a manhome. cnn's nick valencia. give us the details, pretty dramatic, how he was caught. >> reporter: it was pretty dramatic. it was actually a coordinated effort between multiple agencies, fought just in mexico, but the united states him we are told that house he was holed up in was under under surveillance for at least a month. el chapo arrived sometime on thursday. that decision by the mexican navy was made to conduct a raid in the early morning hours of friday. when that raid ultimately was under way, they were met by strong resistance, presumably by cartel operatives related to the cartel. that cartel that el chapo was the head of. at least one marine, a mexican
navy i should say was injured in this shootout. they did descend on that, at which point we are told he escaped through a sewage system. only to emerge to steal a car with an associate. that was spotted somehow out of the city. that's where he was inevitably caught. ultimately, it may have been his own ego and carelessness that he got caught. we were told at that presentation that he was presented to the media i was at, we were told he actually reached out to producers and actresses. he was planning on trying to make a movie about his life. and that could have been ultimately his downfall. victor. >> christy here, are lot of people are worried about extradition to the occupation? >> reporter: i think that's the biggest question, not just here in mexico, but also in the
united states. we saw this past summer the day he filed a formal terrorist attacks digs, a lot of people raised eyebrows the same week that came. he may have had assistance to avoid that extradition. that, of course, cannot be confirmed t. united states is very eager to get el chapo on u.s. soil. he is, of course, public enemy number one in chicago. he faces u.s. drug charges there. we have this quote about his extradition or presumably the potential for extradition. it says, i can confirm that it's the practice of the u.s. to seek extradition whenever defendants subject to u.s. charges are ap pre hevended in another country. if there is any optimism in recent weeks, we have seen only high profile operatives extradited to the united states.
victor, kristi. >> all right. hey, nick, we appreciate it. thank you so much. >> of course, we will have much more on this story the capture of el chapo throughout the morning. of course, now, we want to turn to politics. >> yeah, protesters getting kicked out of a donald trump ramally. not new, necessarily, we've seen it. there is a twist that what happened last night, though, in south carolina. this was a muslim woman who was escorted out for simply standing up. she didn't say anything, we understand. this was a syrian refugee saying they quote are probably isis. well, the woman in the crowd then quietly stood up in protest of that. it sparked a big disruption. >> cnn's jeff zeleny was there and has more on what happened next and more on who this woman is. >> reporter: victor, kristi, donald trump attracts protest, pretty much everywhere he goes around the country. no exception here in rock victim, south carolina. he drew a crowd of 6,000 people
at the winthrop university t. rally was going on, talking about immigration, his republican rivals, hillary clinton, all of that fires up this crowd. about about 30 minutes into this crowd, we noticed there was a woman standing across the way, standing up, she's a 56-year-old flight attendant from charlotte. rose hamid. she came so trump could see what they look like and talk with them. she was standing silently and protesting as you see, she was suddenly escorted out t. crowd turned ugly to her. afterwards, she talked to cnn's don lemon about her experience. >> what happened when the crowds got this hateful crowd mentality as i was being escorted, it was really quite telling of just an exam of what happens when you start using this hateful rhetoric and how it can incite crowd, where moments ago were
very kind to me. >> reporter: now, it was unclear if donald trump knew exactly what was happening during this rally. not uncommon at all for proteste protesters. there were pockets breaking out throughout. but his crowds have been fired up about muslims in the u.s. ever since he proposed to ban all muslims from traveling to it's a central policy proposal now. so he campaigns here in south carolina, a very aggressive style of campaigning. of course, south carolina has the first in the south primary if just about a month's time. his first focus is iowa. he is locking in a title battle with at the time cruz, a fox news poll shows ted cruz is leading trump. that's why he is spending the weekend in iowa. >> jeff, thanks very much. we will talk about cruz vs. trump in just a moment. let's bring in cnn commentator errol lewis at that donald trump rally last night. good morning to you, your reaction. >> reporter: good morning, victor.
it looked to me that the trump campaign and the candidate, himself, are going to have the reckon with a part of what they have stirred up. what they said in some of the harsh rhetoric about muslims and about immigrants and whether or not simply being muslim is a reason to exclude someone from this country. i don't know what he thought he was going to get by way of backlash, i would point out there are more muslims than juice or presbyterians in the united states or episcopalians. they have every right to make their views known politically as this woman did him and i think this will probably be the start of more demonstrations, some more thoughtful than others, to try to bring attention to the fact that not everybody agrees with the way donald trump characterized immigrants, muslims, what we should do with and about these folks. >> what trump said after the woman there was being ushered out t. hatred against us is
unbelieve annual it's their hatred. it's not our hatred. you talk about having to reconcile what happened there. we heard from the head of the rnc. he is 100% confident he will rally the republican party behind donald trump or at the time cruz if they are the nominee. if they are not, will he be able to i guess get their supporters, who what we saw there in rock hill behind another candidate? >> well, it's an interesting question. can you put the jeanie back in the bottle. this is why he speaks about quote/unquote political correctness. i don't need notes, i don't need to temper my speech in anyway. there is a reason you should. there are a lot of different strange thoughts. there are a lot of possiblity that could take this country in
a different direction. the republican party is going to have to try to physical out what it stand for, what to do with people who have now been told over and over by the front runner, it's not okay it's necessary to have this harsh policy outcome and talk against muslims, against immigrants. you know, it's too important to just be left to these kind of stadium shoutouts and off the cuff commentary that you get a lot of times from candidate trump. ron pre vis will have his hands full trying to restore order to a raucous and rowdy conversation right now. >> errol lewis, we will get to those later in the morning. we got to get to breaking news, errol, thank you so much. >> thank you. we want to get you back to new york to we can see what is happening there. very rare to see a news conference with the mayor an police commissioner at 6:00
a.m., but here it is. >> as well as pat lynch, president of pba will also speak. i am joined also by some of the senior leadership of the department at the scene earlier and who have been at the hospital here for the last hour or so. details as we have them at the moment. at approximately 2:10 a.m. this morning, an anti-crime unit police officer here in the bronx were shot and wounded in exchange of gunfire with a suspect in front of 1iation lincoln avenue here in the south bronx. police officers for rod stewart was assigned to plain clothes anti-crime patrol with his partner when he responded to numerous 911 calls reporting a large fight in the street with gun, bats and knives at 2505s this third avenue. it was a large jump up party with 100 to 200 people at that location. where a significant fight broke out into the establishment and
spimd out into the street. as the officers arrived at the scene, we also had significant units from our srg, our group off here this evening. they encountered a male suspect and pursued him. as back-up units arrived, officers engaged in a gunfight in which police officer stewart was struck in the right average him. he returned gunfire, striking the male suspect four times a. .380 semi automatic firearm was recovered at the scene. addition additionalfy arms have been roefrd. the injured police officer was moved here to lincoln hospital. we want to thank the staff for the quick attention to the officer and his injury, where he is in stable condition. he has been joined by his family. family members, mother, brother, a number of brothers, his father is a detective in this department, who is currently on active duty with the u.s. army. and so it is a police family.
quince department atmospherally, today is the fourth anniversary of his assignment to the police department. the stkt shot at the scene was taken to lincoln hospital. he is listed in serious condition. the suspect is 19-year-old christopher rice. our preliminary indication indicates he has a current history of five prior arrests over the last several years, including arrests just yesterday. 9:00 a.m. yesterday morning. a charge in which he was released from court at 11:00 p.m. last night. three hours before the shooting involving our police officer. as of this point, at this point, five additional stabbing victims have been taken to local hospitals in connection with the initial fight that prompted the 911 calls. this matter is still in the early stages of investigation. our police officer, as i mentioned, is 25 years old, unmarried. he is upstairs with his family.
and he was appointed as i mentioned for the department exactly four years ago. so he has quite an anniversary date. with that, i'd like to introduce the mayor of our city, mayor bill de blasio. >> thank you, commissioner. >> thank you very much. well, commissioner bratton, i visited with officer sha rod stewart and his family. what an impressive young man that went into this dangerous situation and hand himled themselves so well. a group of officers from the 40 precinct, with the prestigious response group t. young man, four years on theohe already has a very, very impressive career in terms of the work he's done of getting to the anti-crime unit. he had distinguished himself already in this situation he distinguished himself further with quick thinking and his brave actions and thank god his injuries are not life-threatening. again as you heard from the commissioner, a police family, his dad a detective.
his family very, very committed to this city in every way and it's very, very impressive to see this family. their closeness and all they have done for all of us. their commitment to all of us. the family was gathered around to support him and everyone realizes, thank god, he will be well soon t. fact is, backup came quick his fellow officers did all the right things to subdue these criminals. this is obviously a large group of people this a fight. nypd officers handled the situation, diffused the situation, got the guns, as you heard, on the day. we want to thank everyone here at lincoln hospital. we want to thank the doctor the ceo, all the people here at the hospital who have responded so well. >> right. so again, you are looking there at mayor de blasio. we normally don't hear from them
at 6:00 in the morning. five stabbing victims in the hospital. cnn law enforcement analyst tom fuentes is with us. tom, we know the police department was already on alert because of the police officer that was shot in philadelphia yesterday. what do you make of this situation here? they did not make any, we should point out, indications that this was terrorist related at all. do you think they came out today to make certain that that was very clear? >> reporter: i think so, kristi. because yesterday they put out a bulletin in new york about being on alert and being ready for anything that might happen terrorist related in the after math of the philadelphia police officer being ambushed. so, they already would have expected tremendous attention to this event, wand wondering, is it terrorism or not? it almost sounds like this is a rue toon day in the life of new
york city pd because this is the type of thing that happens all the time. party, people on the street, a stabbing, police officers try to break it up. they get hurt. they get shot. unfortunately, that's almost the normal activity on a weekend in new york and many of our big cities. so, but the fact that it follows so closely after the events in philadelphia is why it's getting the attention and why i think the mayor and the commissioner felt they kneaded to come forward. >> yeah, get in front of cameras today to make that known. tom fuentes, thank you so much. tom will stick around with us, because we do have some more to talk to you about. thank you, tom, regarding that officer who was shot in philadelphia and some news there this morning. >> including, we will talk to tom about the two men in the middle east living in two different u.s. cities arrested for terror-related charges. we will talk about how these cases are now connected. plus, outrage in michigan over lead contaminated water. a family is talking now about how they have been impacted as a
result. >> later, the hottest ticket around. rate now, are you holding tight to yours? the jackpot the largest ever in u.s. history t. question is, is it going to go even higher before tonight's drawing? >> first thing i'd do, take everybody out to dinner. >> pay off my student debt. >> spend it wisely. .

"really?" "yeah" "oh, that didn't hurt at all." "yeah, completely painless." "credit karma. give yourself some credit."
>> we don't quit. good bless them. >> president obama's final state of the union address . 21 minutes after the hour now. two iraqi refugees in two states arrested on terror charges, omar thatraj and the other from sacramento. we are finding out they were in contact with one another. both are pledging to help fight for isis. take a look at a key exchange between the two. according to a key law enforcement, hardan, i need to learn from your weapon, expertise. >> we will make your abouts very strong. when you arrive to syria, you will be trained. but a houston man's family says they have no idea what's going on. they say he could not have been
involved with isis. watch. >> i'm not going to say my husband did not he just cry. >> hamid was blindsided by her husband's arrests. the 18-year-old says omar el hardan left their ray apartment yesterday to answer fbi questions and never returned. federal agents then knocked on their front door. >> and i don't know why. >> al hardan is charged with helping the islamic state. the illegal resident came to the u.s. as an iraqi refugee in 2009 made his first court appearance today. the government also says he committed perjury, lying on his citizenship application, denying he was affiliated with a terrorist organization and also denied heavy weapons training. >> these are serious charges and we anticipate that the evidence will support all of the allegations that we made in this
case. >> reporter: they have been married two years. they have a ten month old boy. his last job was as a limousine drivers. prosecutors told the courts, he did odd jobs. he has two sisters in jordan, his parents and three brothers are all in the u.s. >> they work with isis. nobody likes isis. >> reporter: the family says they were leaving for the u.s. his wife just wants to see him in person. >> he is innocent. he loves america. i love america too. >> and we want to thank an afailiate there for that jayab we should point out may have traveled to syria. authorities say he talked about this on social media. now several of his family members have also been arrested charged with trying to move stolen phones and computers across state line.
cnn law enforcement analyst tom furnths i have suspicion these stolen phones are checked to terrorism in some way. would that be safe to say? >> it would be safe to say that's a part of the investigation. why would they be taking those phones and selling them if it wasn't a part of their idea to hide what they're doing from authorities. >> we talked about the communication via social media. do you know, has there been any ability to disrupt that part of isis' recruitment, because we know it's so strong? >> no, it's almost impossible. and this is something, you know, the fbi and intelligence community have been working on for years. how can they isolate the messages that come out? right now on twitter, they put out for it,000 messages a day. it's been difficult for them to find the exact source and the exact ability to surgically take
that offber net without the rest of the damage that would be done. unfortunately, they're not able to stop it at this point. >> tom, how plausible would it that someone would be pledging online to fight isis and family members would have absolutely no knowledge of what was going on? >> well, it's very common. if the person thought that the family wouldn't be supportive of the idea, especially a young wife with a young baby and other members of the family, it would not be. it happens in case after case, where the family is completely unaware until the person is gone. >> right. tom fuentes, we always appreciate your insight. thank you for being with us. >> you are welcome. >> 25 minutes after the. an airliner was forced to make a stop after a woman allegedly attacked a flight attendant. the passengers jumped in action and restrained the woman on the floor until the chicago bound flight landed in detroit. >> that woman was taken into police custody. two men with knives stormed into
an egyptian hotel and attacked at least three guests there according to country's ministry of interior, security forces reportedly killed one suspect and injured the other. two victims were taken to the hospital. the motive for the attack also unclear. the protesters that took over that federal building in southeast oregon did not accept the peaceful resolution offer. the sheriffs office says roughly 20 member group rejected their offer for safe passage out of the state. officials have not said if they will file criminal charges against them. ahead on "new day," the recapture of mexican drug lord el chapo we have learned to the same prison from which he escaped. will he be coming to the u.s. is what everyone wants to know. plus, a muslim woman is making headlines after she gets ejected from donald trump's event.
but the family just didn't think a flood could ever happen. the reality is, floods do happen. protect what matters. get flood insurance. call the number on your screen to learn more. >> new details this morning on the breaking news on el chapo captured in mexico. the sinaloa drug lord was captured in a daring raid and is now back in prison. officials say five spbuspects we
killed. he escaped from a prison in an underground tunnel. a woman weaker a hijab, stood up in silent protest when the republican front runner linked syrian refugee to isis. she said nothing, we should point out. trump supporters pointed. shouted at her until police took her out. despite her early exit. she told cnn some supporters held her hand and said they were sorry she was forced to leave. this morning, there are new details about the man who allegedly tried to assassinate a philadelphia police officer in the name of the islamic state. >> officials say they're now looking into possible terror ties as they announce the suspect. 30-year-old edward archer. here's his picture. he made two trips to the middle east. >> the fbi says archer made trips to saudi arabia in 2011 and then a trip to egypt in 2012. >> meanwhile the officer that was shot is recovering in a philadelphia hospital following that attack. officials saying he is facing
multiple surgeries. he was shot three times. his left elbow shattered by one of the bullets. miguel, what have you learned? >> reporter: good morning. well, police are looking into those two trips to the middle east as well as everything else about mr. archer. he told police he did it because he pledged allegiance to isis. he also said that he did this because he believes in allow, that's why he shot this officer. >> all cars stand by. we have an officer shot. >> reporter: a horrifying scene in philadelphia. that's 30-year-old edward archer say police brandishing a .9mm handgunfireing into the police car of 33-year-old police officer jesse hartnet. the gunfireing at least 11 shots, hitting the officer three times in the left arm. >> shots fired. i'm shot, pleading heavily.
>> reporter: incredibly the police officer not only survived, he chased his attacker down, shooting him in the butt, stopping him, all while bleedling, left arm unusable, speaking to the dispatcher all at the same. >> we have an officer down. >> he had the grace of god first and foremost. but, because i can't explain it based on my beliefs in any other way, but under those circumstances, man, i can't imagine that almost anything that you could have could protect you. >> that is chilling. absolutely chilling when you watch that. and if that doesn't just make the hairs on your neck just raise when you see that, it's scary. >> reporter: police say the attacker used a handgun stolen from police in 2013 an confessed he was inspired by isis. >> he pledges his allegiance to islamic state. he follows allow. and that is the reason he was called upon to do this. >> reporter: authorities now digging into the life and past of 30-year-old edward archer.
according to him, he believed the police defend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the koran. >> reporter: fbi searching properties related to archer, to determine how deeply if at all he is tied to international terror groups. now, what is not clear is whether there is any real tie or whether it was all just a fig e figment of his imagination. his mother said he suffered mental problems. he had been speaking to himself lately. he had been mumbling a lot. >> that he blamed the police before targeting him. so it's not clear yet the extent to which this is a real individual who was inspired by isis or whether or not this was just a figment of his imagination. back to you. >> kristi and tom will talk about that interview in just a moment. quickly, is there any indication
that anyone inside the u.s. was closely involved with archer an would have been involved with this attack? >> reporter: again, that's exactly what they're looking into. and this is no indication of that. it's not clear whether this is is a figment of his imagination or there is a tie to anybody in the u.s. or outside of it. >> miguel, thank you so much, kristi. let's bring in cnn analyst assistant fbi director tom fuentes, first the mother saying he heard voices in his head, something was strange. she told the philadelphia "enquirer." how do authorities determine whether this was, indeed, terrorism. he does travel, they have been able to discern to the middle east or if this is somebody who just has a mental instability? >> well, first, kristi the travels to the middle east will be investigated. the fbi has offices in cairo and egypt and saudi arabia. we are closely with authorities
there. they will look at what activities he may have engaged in while in those countries. locally, you sa you the searches of going into his computers, trying to recover things from where he lives and they'll be looking at was he communicating with other people? did he express this kind of ideology to others, either in social media or direct e-mails, texting, phone messages or at least ties to a known group t. fact that he may be mentally im, you know, in a way, don't you question the sanity of most of the people that want to join isis? so that's not a mutually exclusive thing that you could be mentally ill and a member of isis or a wannabe member of isis. >> okay. let's get to the element of this. it was clearly disturbing to the police commissioner when he was talking about it. the fact that a gun he used was a police officer's gun, it was stolen back in 2013. how do police try to discern and
decipher where he got the gun? is he the one that stole it? did he get it from somebody else? how does that all play out? >> that's what they will be looking at. it will be difficult f. he didn't steal it, whoever stole it or took it to a pawnshop and sold it to other friends or gang members, whatever it might have been, we don't know all of the hand it went through before that gun ended up in his hands. he may talk about where he got i. he may not. if he doesn't, it's going to be very difficult to trace it to being anywhere once it left the home that it was stolen from. >> all right, tom fuentes, thank you so much there. we appreciate it as always. >> you are welcome. ahead on "new day" one year after the "charlie hebdo" attacks in paris. president hollande unveals a
supermarket last year. just moments ago, in fact, french president hollande unveiled a plaque in their memory. >> dozens turned out to honor those that were killed. aaron mclaughlin joins us live from paris. this is a remind ter attacks in january, 2015, did it not end with the shooting of "charlie hebdo." tell us about today's ceremony. >> reporter: hi, kristi, victor, well, it was a somber, emotional ceremony to remember a fallen police officer. he was just 25 years old within she stopped him in the paris suburb. she stopped him after a near accident. >> that is when he opened fire on her, killing her. and then he tried to open fire on her colleague. his gun jammed and he managed to get away. today french president hollande and other dignitaries, police officer, her family, gathered to
remember her. they unveiled a plaque with her name on it. they also renamed the main thorofare in mont rouge in her honor. now, later today, there will be yet another ceremony. this time at the kosher supermarket where coulibaly opened fire before security forces killed him. and really, people here in france are still struggleing a year later to come to terms with just this tremendous lot. at the same time dealing with what authorities say is a very real prospect of more terrorists in this country. >> let me ask you while we have you a few moments more. what changes have you seen across paris as it relates to the security challenges there after "charlie hebdo," okay, there were the bataclan attacks, so many people were killed in that theater and on the one-year anniversary of "charlie hebdo," a person trying to go this with a knife at a police station?
>> reporter: we, of course, have seen in the wake of these attacks an increased security presence. french president hollande announcing they will increase that security presence by some 5,000 additional security forces throughout the country. but in addition to that, the government is also taking extraordinary measures, after the "charlie hebdo" attack, they passed legislation, increasing the government's ability to monitor and surveil people electronically t. following the terrorist attacks in november, the government, extraordinary powers. police can now go into house, and conduct searches. in february, the government is expected to put forward more legislation, giving them more power to conduct more under surveillance. all of this, of course, happening in a country that takes plead in its civil liberties. the people here i have been seeking to, very much of the
opinion that these, this is necessary, in order to try and prevent further terror. >> all right. aaron mclaughlin, lots of challenges, the country as we know is resilient. thank you so much. >> all right. coming up for you here, men, women, children in michigan may have been drinking toxic water for more than a year. a disturbing report out of flint, michigan to tell you about. also, what are your chances, really, you sit there and hold your lottery ticket. what are the chances you will win the biggest lottery payoff ever. we'll break it down. >> first this week's culinary journey takes to us denmark to immediate a chef whose innovative dishes turned the restaurant in into one of the world's best. what separates his cooking styles from other top chefs.
>> copenhagen, the danish capital is also at the forefront of the new nordic cuisine. the undisputed king of the local culinary scene is noma. it's creative force, two chefs. >> to me walking into noma is like stepping away from reality in a sense, where this universe of our own, where people are pushing and they have this energy better plates, to understand how to cook in this region. exploring the ingredients,
trying to build a new tradition. >> reporter: pioneering the notion of authority, he has revolutionized nordic cuisine, using raw seasonal ingredients plucked directly from the wild landscape of the north. >> this was an amazing discovery to see the food stuff around you and to check yourself to every single root and berry and every single tree and figuring out how does the taste? how do you cook with it? >> reporter: pushing the boundaries of cooking, the chef encourages experimenting with flavors that are distilled into unique seemingly simple creations. >> all right. watch the whole show at cnn.com/journey.

is a case of emergency declared for thousands after researchers discovered toxic levels of lead in the water supply there. >> i have been paying for poison, paying for water that's a toxic waste. >> reporter: wanda and her 12-year-old daughter are among the residents where these blood levels tested high for lead after the city switched its water source. >> in an attempt to cut costs city officials stopped getting pre treated water from the city of detroit in 2014 and instead began moving water from the nearby flint river. >> the water would come in brown. my daughter was like, mom the tub to take a bath, why is the water brown? >> the problem is that the flynnt river is 19 times more corrosive than lake huron the
choice water according to researchers at virginia tech. the city wasn't treating it krorth federal law. lead pipes began to core rode, leeching into the water. >> if you were to put something into a population for generations to come, it would be lead. >> reporter: this doctor is a pediatrician at flint children's hospital. >> it is a well known potent mineral toxic. there is tons of evidence. and it is one of the most damming things you can do to a population. it drops your iq. it affects your behavior. it is linked to criminalality. it has multigenerational impact. there is no safe level. >> reporter: after hearing about water that looked and tasted funny. she decided to investigate, using publicly available data on lead levels on children in flint she found the percentage of lead in kids doubled, even tripled in some places after the water
switched. >> when we saw it was getting into children and when we knew the witnesss of it. that's when we began not to bleed. >> reporter: the crossesive river water goes from the plant to the water main to the service lines to homes, in flint the water mains are made of iron, which turns some of the water brown and half of the service lines and pipes in flint homes are made of lead or at least a year, city and state officials denied anything was wrong. the former mayor publicly drank the water to make a statement. >> in retrospect, i regret all of it. all the way back to seeing the city move to a different drinking water because there is, you can't put a dollar amount on the devastation to our community, our kids. it was completely avoidable.
>> cnn legal analyst joey jackson with us now. joey, governor rick snyder says, he's quote sorry for the quote unfortunate situation. you saw there, protesters wanting him to lose his job. they want charges brought. where does the liability fall here? is it on the state the county? >> you know, first of all, public emergency. you are talking about children with great levels of lead in addition to everyone else and it can have severe effects. so the issue becomes really three-fold. are you looking at a political issue in terms of his resignation and did he act responsibly as a public official should to protect the health and welfare and one is civil liability for anyone injured, talking about the first one first, politics, that will take care of itself. in the event he didn't do their job, there are repercussions. getting into the civil element, civilly the problem becomes one of what's called sovereign immunity and that means when you have a public official, in this
instance the governor. it is my understanding there was a city manager appointed in that particular community to work and oversee the mayor and his officials, decisions knead to be made. so the way sovereign immunity works civilly, although people want to sue the state because of the misdeeds and the negligence and gross negligence of the state, in many instance, they're forbidden. in fact, michigan like other states has a statute on sovereign immunity that says you can't sue the state, really emergency and existent circumstances. there are exceptions few could establish gross departture for the norm. as you can imagine, that's there, so public officials can do their jobs in a discretionary capacity. maybe poorly. >> is this an open door for a charge like that or no? >> that's the bigger question. because what the governor is going to say is that he acted in good faith upon the lines of information that he had at that time. if he was merely negligent in doing so, then, you know, office holders are negligent every day.
you can't bring down a locality. municipality or state due to negligence of its officers. the other question on the other side is going to be, wait, this wasn't simple negligence, this was gloejs. this was something that you knew or really should have known that affected so many people, but we're far away from that. that's going to rely on discovery, were there e-mail exchanges? what did the government know? when did he know it? at what point, did he declare too late and act in food faith? then it goes to the other issue, which is criminality. >> that would depend upon whether there was any misconduct in office. what was any misconduct he engaged in would rise to the criminal level, for that you have to show corrupt intent. so that's a very high standard. >> all right. well, hey, joey, thank you for breaking it down for us. at the end of the day, you feel for all of those folks, what they can be dealing with. again, long, long term effects from that exposure. thank you so much. appreciate it. >> thank you, kristi. >> up next, el chapo, the
. >> moving everybody out to a naf i safe neighborhood. that's number one. >> we're all optimistic any of us could win with any number, why not me? >> 800 million, it's a long shot but hey you don't know if you don't try. >> what is that music? >> good advice. i don't know. >> the first thing i would buy is cnn a new music bag. what's happening? all right. >> you know, he says it like we result a talking about it here when you aren't listening. >> all right the good game of the week is not football. but the lottery. record breaking powerball
getting bigger. makinging it the largest jackpot in u.s. history. >> if you that tick lump sum $4 fix million after taxes, but you only have roughly one in 292 million chance of actually winning. >> so you are saying there is a chance? >> that is the line that my husband always says. i won't tell you what he asked about. andy scholes is here to break it down for us. because i know you have a lot of questions about it. >> the numbers are fascinating. >> believe it or not, some numbers, if you look for a strategy other than prayer, there are things you can do take the football 26 to be drawn. you can see 266 times, a little more than all the other numbers that are out there. of course, when we talk about the lotto, we like to talk about the odds of what can happen to you other than winning the lottery the better odds of being struck by lightning one in 164,000 something, drowning in
1113. you have a better chance of that happening to you than winning the lottery. some other things out there, give birth to quad dominican republiclets. hit by an after the road. i actually never heard of someone being hit by an asteroid. i think you have a better chance of becoming a billionaire by other means out there. guys, you though what i think? when you talk ab these things of oddest things that can happen to you? someone's going to win. >> right. it might as well but. >> why not me? >> that's right. $2 for a chance. >> if you win the lump sum, you can buy a sports team. can you get a chunk of those. >> all right. take a piece. >> that might be what i'd do. >> is that what you would do? >> other than not show up at work tomorrow. >> it's been nice knowing you, good luck with that. don't forget us little people. thank you. important to note, if no one
wins powerball it could jump to a b a billion dollars. >> there is a lot of news to get to. >> next hour on "new day" starts right now. [ music playing [ music playing ] >> a muslim woman kicked out of a donald trump rally t. crowd, you see them here on this video, booing and heckling her. >> it was really quite telling of and a vivid example of what happens when you start using this hateful rhetoric and how it can incite a crowd. >> breaking overnight the world's most wanted drug lord el chapo caught in a deadly shootout. we are showing you pictures right here. a philadelphia police officer survives an attack by a gunman who says he was acting in the name of isis. this morning, fellow officers
are now talking about how the colleague survived, miraculously. >> happy saturday to you. we hope you wake up in good spirits. >> we want to get to that breaking news out of mexico this morning. emcha el chapo is back at the prigsen from which he escaped last july. minutes after he was caught by the mexican navy in los mochis following a frantic chase through sewers, he tried to escape through a manhole, again, another tunnel. >> you see his face was forced to the cameras as he was transported back to mexican city. cnn nick valencia is joining us live from mexico city. tell us what you saw there, walk us through how he was caught. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, victor.
it was certainly a chilling atmosphere. about 500 journalists from the local comblaed were here. this is a around the thing they usually do with cartel operatives. we were there at the hangar, the airport hangar for the mexico's attorney general's office, where he was presented. he also heard details about his capture. apparently this home where he washold up in had been monitored for at least a month. neighbors complained they seen men with heavy weapons. we are told last night el chapo showed up on thursday. the decision to make that raid in the early morning hours of friday was made. that's when the mexican navy the marine, ended up deskrengd on that room that he was in, that home he was in. a shootout happened between the mexican navy as well as cartel operatives. one mexican navy officer was shot and injured. at least five of the suspected cartel operatives were killed it is during this time el chapo was
captured. it was ultimately his ego or carelessness that eventually got him caught. he was trying to make a movie, we are told. he reached out to producers and actresses and that also helped authorities pinpoint his location. victor, kristi. >> so, nick, when people wake up and hear he has been sent back to the same prison of which he escaped. the question, how do they keep him from doing it again? >> reporter: well, there's certainly a lot of concerns. >> that brings up a lot of nerves here, not only in mexico, but the united states. even still, this is the prison he escaped from using that mile long tunnel in a rural country home. he is now back in that prison. he was escorted there yesterday.
we are told he is back now t. u.s. is eager to have him extradited. it was earlier this summer t. same week they filed a form am request to get el cpap po extradited. >> that didn't happen because of the escape. now, though, the u.s. is as hungry as ever to get el chapo back on u.s. soil. he faces drug charges in chicago. he was public enemy one in the city. we seen a lot of recent cooperation. le barbie was just in stlaen e atlanta federal court facing drug charges, the u.s. can only hope that will be the same fate for el chap pochl they want him on u.s. soil. >> have mexican authorities said anything specifically about if they will extradite? i heard you say the u.s. wants him, but will mexico give him up? >> reporter: well, you have to understand, this is a matter of pride. this is not the most notorious
drug trafficker in the world. this was the most wanted man in mexico. president nieto said this was a sense of pride they captured him. it was embarrassing when he escaped. now this third time he was captured. we can only assume it will be not as easy as the u.s. wants. it may be an indication of what will happen to el cpap chapo in the coming weeks and months. in other news, a cheering crowd at a donald trump ramally got ugly after a muslim woman stood up in silent protest. the disruption happened as trump sucked that syrian refugees are affiliated with isis. we're going to show you here how it unfolded last night. this was in south carolina. >> i know the game and i know the game very well. and these people will come in --
>> now, trump supporters as you heard there started booing and chanting and cheering as police escorted her and several others out. the woman was rosa meade. moments after she was kicked out, she spoke with cnn why she was there and what people said to her. >> i have a sincere belief that if people get to know each other one on one that they'll stop being afraid of each other and we'll be able get rid of all this hate in the world, literally. that was my goal to let people see muslims are not that scary. the people around me were lovely. there was people who were very nice, sharing their popcorn. it was very nice people all around me, people i had
conversations with. but then what happened when the crowd got this like hateful crowd mentality, as i was being escorted, it was really quite telling of and a vivid example of what happens when you start using this hateful rhetoric and how it can incite crowd, where moments ago were saying, get out, do you have have a bomb? i said, no, do you have a bomb in they were saying ugly things. one guy was saying, god is great. i'm like, god is great. one guy said jesus loves you in the arabic. i said, i know, jesus loves you, too. the thing is people don't even know what they're saying. they get riled up in the hate mongering. they don't even know what they're saying. >> the trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment asking why she was escorted out in the first place. a fight for survival.
a philadelphia police officer shot point blank while sitting in his patrol car t. gunman admitted that he acted in allegiance to isis. we have new details for you regarding how that officer was able to avoid the fatal shot. >> plus, demonstrators angry on the streets of germany this morning, protesting the policy on accepting refugee migrants following a large number of sexual assaults on new year's eve. the powerball jackpot up to a record $800 million. will it go higher? >> i'm going to take care of my family the number one priority, moving everybody out of the rough neighborhood we staying in. that's number one. >> we're all optimistic any one of us could win at any time with any number and why not me? ♪ we stop arthritis pain, so you don't have to stop. because you believe in go. onward.

he made two trips to the middle east. >> the fbi says archer made trips to saudi arabia in 2011 and to egypt in 2012. >> meanwhile, the officer who was shot, jesse hartnet is recovering in a philadelphia hospital this morning. he is facing multiple surgeries. his left el poe was shattered. we are following this live in philadelphia. good morning, miguel, what have you learned today? >> reporter: good morning. it is absolutely incredible that officer survived this, not only survived but operated so valiantly under incredible conditions. also, police looking into, digging into the life of edward archer, trying to physical out if there are those connections. he told police he believed police work was contrary to the teachings of islam. >> all cars stand by we have an officer shot. >> reporter: ohorrifying scene in philadelphia. >> that 30-year-old edward
archer, say police, brandishing a .9mm handgunfireing into the police officer jesse hartnettt. archer moves to the window the gun inside the car firing at least 11 shots, hitting the officer three times in the left arm. >> shots fired. i'm shot, i'm bleeding heavily. >> reporter: incredibly the police officer not only survived, he chased the attacker down, shooting him in the butt. stopping him, bleeding profusely, left arm unusable, peeking to the dispatcher all at the same. >> we have an officer down. >> he had the grace of god first and foremost, but, i can't explain it based on my beliefs any other way. but under the circumstances, man, i can't imagine that almost anything you could have could protect you. >> that is chilling, absolutely chilling when you watch that. and if that doesn't just make the hairs on your neck just raise when you see that, it's
scary. >> reporter: police say the attacker used a handgun stolen from police in 2013 and confessed, he was inspired like isis. >> he pledges his allegiance to islamic st. he follows allow and that is the reason he was called upon to do this. >> reporter: authorities now digging into the life and past of 30-year-old edward archer. >> according to him, he believes the police defend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the corn. >> reporter: fbi searching through properties related to archer, trying to determine just how deeply, if at all, he is tied to international terror groups now a fellow officer responded to the officers car in that situation. johnny castro posted a picture of officer hartnett's car. you could see the blood running out of that car. he lost a lot of blood. the commissioner says he's very lucky to have survived. the officer giving a very moving
account of everything officer hartnett went through, taking three bullets. one of the bullets did shatter his elbow, broke his arm, basically, one went through an artery. he had extensive nerve damage. so despite the fact that he was only hit in the left arm, it is going to be a long road to recovery for officer hartnett. back to you guys. >> miguel, we appreciate the update. thank you. let's bring in cnn analyst tom fuentes. tom, as the investigators start to collect as much as they can about communications between archer and anyone who might be afillated with isis, give us an idea. if this is not someone who was, you know, on social media, didn't have a twitter account, facebook, how do they get those answers to those questions? >> reporter: victor, if there is no digital trail to follow, they may not get those answers.
it only can come from inside his head. so they need to have e-mails or social media postings, phone calls, friends, relatives that may be able to corroborate his intention or his statement that he was doing it on behalf of isis. if they don't fine other indications of that, it will be only what he says. >> how have these types of attacks, this is the fourth isis-inspired attack in about two years. how have these types of attacks changed law enforcement? he saw out of new york in the shooting in south bronx overnight. immediately the mayor come out to tell everyone what was the reason behind at least what they know, the motive behind this shooting of that officer. i imagine police departments across the country are on high alert. >> reporter: they are. that's the problem. as i mentioned, many departments face that kind of mayhem every night. our big city police encounter these kind of situations and deal with them.
but now with the heightened alert of possible connections to terrorism, that's why he saw the commissioner and mayor of new york come out and immediately try to say and put fears to rest. they don't believe it was a terrorist situation last night. >> there is an element, at least according to archer's mother and her interview with the philadelphia "enquirer" of mental illness here saying, quote, kind of strange lately he was hearing voices in his head, mental illness i'd imagine is a part of this investigation to get to the bottom of how much each of these variables played into this? >> that's true. that's another thing hard to determine, was he completely mentally ill and doesn't understand what isis is? he is obviously misinformed about the police and the teachings of the corn. i was on the board of interpom. i also ran fbi international
operations. every country in the islamic world has a police force and every one of those countries belongs to interpol. which shows they are on the international stage for their police force, including iran and saudi arabia and egypt and the cases of countries he traveled to. so, you know, to say that the fact of having police is contrary to the teachings of the corn is false. >> of course, this investigation just beginning. a lot of complex variables here. tom fuentes, thanks for helping us understand. >> you are welcome. >> listen, i want to get you some news here, this is coming from the officer that first posted that information about officer hartnett. he said, you ducked your head down at just the right moment, that round missed your head by inches. three bullets tore into your arm, shattering the bone severeing an artery. without hesitation, you fought your attacker almost instantly. you drew your service weapon and viciously returned fire. it was literally a fight for life and death is what that
fellow officer is recounting about that attack. of course, officer hartnett, wins the praises of the police commission their as well who really seemed to be torn up himself by the fact that this man in philadelphia this officer was shot by a gun that used to be a police gun and stolen. >> stolen just a few years ago. of course, it's not clear yet if archer stole the gun or it went through the cycle of the illegal drug trade on the streets and ended up in his hands somehow. okay, that will likely come out in the investigation. we will continue to follow that this morning. >> all righty. also this morning, paris is marking one year on the deadly attack on a supermarket that left four dead. tensions still high on the korean peninsula days after pyongyang says it detonated a hydrogen bomb. cnn is the only u.s. broadcaster inside north korea. we will take threw liyou there
>> yeah, this ramped up pretty quickly in rock hymn, south carolina the crowd cheering at this donald trump rally after a muslim woman stood up in silent protest. the disruption happened as trump suggested syrian refugees are affiliated with isis. and we saw how it unfolded last night. as we discuss, we are joined by cnn's political commentator, ben ferguson and maria car don't na. i want to start with you. when you watch that video, what do you see will? >> i see a protester that got exactly what they wanted to accomplish when they went to this event. they wanted to stand out. they wanted there to be fanfare and do interviews about their cause and mix accomplished. a lot of people do this, i don't think this is any different because she was muslim, if she was a protester protesting something else, you saw a rape victim protesting hillary clinton the other day. this happens, i don't think this
is special because she's muslim. >> maria, what do you see? >> i see somebody that stood up not only for her community, but i think for speech in this country that we so desperately need. something that is not violent, that is not focused on picking protesters out when they're actually being civil and silent. she stood up, did not say anything, she was very respectful and, frankly, in what she was saying in her earlier interviews, she was saying other trump supporters around her were absolutely civil back to her. were actually nice. i think what this indicates is that trump, himself, is the kind of person who incull pates hate, steve, and who promotes the kind of behavior that the other trump supporters are engaging in and for him and for his supporters, i think should be embarrassing. it's not what leadership is.
a leader should actually focus on trying to get us to act to the better of our nature, not the worst. >> ben, let me come back to you with that. i want the designation of this being a hate speech. let me come to you with the sentiment we see on the gop side of two-thirds of republicans supporting the ban on non-americans coming in. a large percentage, 40% of republicans through a recent poll find that islam is violent. is this something driven by the members of the party or is it driven by the leaders of the party in trump's name? >> i think it's driven by the fact that people feel right now we do not have control of those that are coming into this country that may be connected to extremism. we saw it happen yesterday in philadelphia. where you have a police officer that was gunned down by an individual radicalized, we assume, when to the the middle east twice, said he did it in
the name of islam. there are people concerned about our national security. when you have refugees that are coming in, we don't know who they are, their backgrounds, what they're affiliated with. they are affiliated with this. this is about being extremely hateful. there are people that may not be the norm. but the 40% you talked arguments what they're seeing is, they are seeing we have a program right now where we truly do not understand how it works. that's how they associate it with donald trump. i have been critical of him on cnn. i will say the 40% who say look we are concerned about radical islam. we are seeing it play out. look at the video that talked about how many women were attacked and raped recently in europe on new year's eve, for goodness sakes. they don't know who the people were. they know it was a massive amount of men. they can't answer any of these questions. when people see that, they say,
are we protecting us here in this country? that's where this debate is coming from. it's a debate we should be having. >> the problem is, the difference is that trump as a leader should be actually explaining to people the difference between muslims who are have been born here for years and years and years and a peaceful and propose that kind of peace versus the extremists that are doing us harm and, yes, there absolutely is fear. instead of being a real leader, explaining the differences to his own supporters between those two, he is actually promoting this sort of mentality group hatred mentality this drupe was talking about. >> with all due respect, donald trump -- >> ten second, we got to go. >> it is very clear he has friends that are muslims, there are people that are muslims that
are peaceful he knows well. he almost always says that when he is talking about this issue. he has a lot of muslims he likes. i think he has distinguished. i think he is focused on the people that are not equal. that's what his campaign is about right now. >> that is not enough. not enough. >> i want to ask you, maria, come back to you and ask you about hillary clinton coming under fire from the chairman of the senate judiciary committee as it relates to the 3,000 pages of e-mails released early friday morning, calling one disturbing. i think we have a segment of this e-mail. she was responding to an aide who was giving her some information about the difficulty of sending a secure fax and she responded with the they can't turn it into non-paper with no identifying heading and send non-secure. the concern here is that she's instructing her subordinates to send her information that should be sent on this secure facts in
a way that would jeopardize the security of that information. >> i would say a couple things here that are very important for your viewers. first of all the state department said there is no indication that that e-mail was actually sent. number two, let's remember that not everything that is created on a secure system is actually classified. number three, three, what she was talking about were talking points. for the most part, by their nature, talking points are not classified material because they are used for public di sell nation. i would say to other republican, they need to calm down. i understand they're desperate to find anything to knock hillary clinton down because she is so strong on national security issues versus an incredibly weak republican bench on these issues that are so important to the the american people. >> it is, victor, it's hard for me to imagine you can in one sentence say that hillary clinton is hard on national security issues when she had no
respect for the national security issue that she was in charge of dealing with, when it comes to being safe in her secure e-mail. there is no point of having a secure e-mail server or system or classified information system if have you no regard for it when it's inconvenient for you. that's when she put the server in her house in a basement in a bathroom. she didn't want to have her e-mails checked.n you can say this is about bringing her down. hillary clinton brings this upon herself. >> it is. >> hillary clinton is the one that decided to break the ruse and set her own e-mail system in and set national security issues when you are in charge of our foreign policy at risk. the only woman she can blame is herself. >> and right now she is beating every single republican on national security issues, so. >> we got to wrap it there. maria cardona, thank you, both. >> thank you, victor.
>> a lot going on in the world. the fbi investigating possible terror ties after a suspect proclaims he shot a police officer quote in the name of the islamic state. suspected gunman edward archer now in police custody, the fbi revealing archer made two trips to the middle east. the officer wounded in that attack is recovering in a local hospital. his elbow shattered. >> a new york mayor and police chief, police commissioner, rather, held a rare early morning press conference today they said the officer sharod stewart is in stable condition at the hospital. >> new details on the breaking news of joaquin el chapo guzman's capture in mexico. the drug lord was captured in a
daring raid. it was dramatic. he is back in prison now. officials say five suspects were killed. six others arrested during this raid. el cpap po escaped last july -- el chapo escaped last july through an underground tunnel. th in this escape that has happened twice has got to have people thinking, why would you put him back in the same prison from he? >> yeah, you wouldn't see that happen here in the united states. we've obviously had our escapes here in the u.s. you don't put the individual back into the same jamie he escaped from. i think having said that. if you look at the arrests that were made after this escape, it sounds like they basically got everybody arrested and convicted that was involved in that escape attempt last year. so i think the facility, obviously, is fairly secure now.
and that they are watching it 24 hours a day. probably have somebody standing right outside the cell watching every move he is making, have him on video as they did before, but hopefully, the u.s. government is moving quickly getting the extradition papers. as what was going to happen last july. >> right, just before he disappeared and escaped. he was going to be extradited to the u.s. how likely do you think it is that an extradition will actually happen? >> i think it's definite. i think the department of justice will file. they will file. the escape, itself, was a huge embarrassment for the government of members colorado i think the government of mexico is opened for this particular extra dichlgs as you recall a month, a month-and-a-half after his
escape, we got 11 cartel extradited within 48 hours. toke we flew them back to the u.s. some of them have been ascendants are on in jail right now. >> all right. we appreciate your insight. thank you for being with us. >> thanks, kristi. >> we will have much more for you throughout the morning on this. because there are a couple other tidbits. also this morning, cnn is the only organization operating inside pyongyang as north koreans celebrate this week's controversial and alleged hydrogen bomb test. cnn's will ripley joining us live. will, tell us about this exclusive look that you were able get. the north korean's newly opened science and technology center, what did you' that stood out to you? >> when we arrived oak here, kristi, we asked to speak to scientists about this, obviously, there is a lot of controversy, was eight hydrogen bomb?
as a lot of international experts are claiming t. government officials told us they were going to take to us a science and technology center where we would be able learn more facts about this so we go to this building in pang i don't think, it opened up a week ago. it is shaped like a giant atom t. centerpiece is a rocket that was used to launch a satellite into space about three years ago and when we went there, we were able to speak with students learning about their government's alleged accomplishment of exploring a bomb. there wasn't anyone there to show us proof. at this point i can't say we had anybody explain the science showing us tangible evidence. i will say we talked to officials here who say it was indeed an h bomb and it was technology that prevented a significant amount of it not getting into the atmosphere. the sniffer planes up detecting
radiation, china, south korea and japan have been detecting, they haven't found anything. simply because the test was done for deeper into the mountain where the detonation actually happened. >> you have such a good sense of this you are right there in north korea. what is the mood there after this test, generally? and reaction in south korea as well to that? >> people are really celebrating. universally, everybody that we've talked to on the ground is happy about their nature of accomplishment. it's because the propaganda does instill from a very early age the fear of an imminent invasion from the united states and its allies, in this country, where people can't access the internet. they feel and they are told that at any moment the united states is going to invade and the only way to protect their country's national sovereignty is to
develop nuclear weapons, ways to defend themselves. that's why you have the north koreans on friday claiming they byun launched a submaine if provoked. >> we appreciate your perspective. thank you very much. >> angry demonstrators on the streets of germany at this hour, protesting this country's policy on accepting refugees after a large number of sexual assaults on new year's eve. also lawyers for the laquan mcdonald family say police bullied witnesses and told them to change their stories to the official's versions. official's versions. .
. >> new this morning, in germany, protesters are getting ready to demonstrate about the new year's sex assault that has shaken the country. we have a report that dozens of women were groped an assaulted on new year's eve and german authorities have identified 31 people, including 18 asylum seeking refugees as suspects.
cnn's correspondent is live there from cologne. what are you seeing there this morning? >> reporter: that's right, victor, i want to show you a little bit of scene here what's happening. on the left side over here, we have hundreds of protesters, a lot of them were coming from a solidarity, a show of solidarity at the cologne cathedral to support those victims, also a football from the left section there. they have been saying things like refugees welcome. you know, in light of the fact that 31 of the suspects identified police do appear to be asylum seekers. it caused a rouge u huge rift. i'm association some kind of a bang went off. i don't think we need to be worried just yet. but togy you a sense of how tense thooings things are, the left section, there is a whole bunch of riot police here because there are right wing protesters over there, spoiling for a fight on both sides,
frankly. they have been making rude gestures. police are quite worried. they have protests side-by-side. there are a number of riot police to keep them away from each other. it goes to show how much anger and concern there is here as a result of those protests and the refugee issue is now squarely in the center of all this. because of these assaults and 31 identified more than half are asylum seekers. that's why this is such a powder keg of an issue. >> i know it may be difficult to hear me there. i want to get your guidance, but that bang that we heard a few second ago, is that the first one you've heard today? >> reporter: that is the first one i heard today. i'm not sure exactly what it was but people are on edge here. we seen quite a few taken out by
police on both sides of the political section here. the loudest group here is actually on the left wing group. you see them there. they say no to classes. no to racism. no to naziism, that germany should never return to that. on the other hand, you have right wing protesters on the other side there. no refugees, no to immigration. no to the muslim migrants trying to come in here. there are anti-muslim demonstrations over there. in between roads and roads of riot police to try and keep them separate. but it is going to be tense now for a few hours. hopefully, it won't descend into any kind of violence, but that's why police are here. we'll keep you up to date victor when we go into the crowds and find out more of what is going on. >> what we are seeing to understand a better lay of the land there, i see to your left on the right of the screen the
crowd there shouting and chanting and we can hear the whistles him are they responding to the speaker or shouting, to opoints shoukt back at hem? >> exactly. what we've got here is two opposing groups. they're really sort of egging each other on so the left winger has been here a while. frankly, quite a few at the front ospoiling for a fight. as for a lot of those come out of the train station that i kind of throw insults at them. you see a number making rude gestures. >> that, of course, invokes a response from that side from the right side. it's that kind of building of tension that concerns police. that's why you see so many of the riot police out here. it's also an expression of that public anger on all sides people upset and this is their way of expressing. >> we'll be back with you,
hopefully, you can get some information about what that bang was, that was something that detonated by authorities there or any clarity for us. we'll check back. thanks. >> all right. new controversy surrounding the death of a chicago teen, attorneys say witnesses to laquan mcdonald's shooting were threatened and ordered to change their story. later, powerball record $800 million jackpot. listen, if no one wins the income drawing, it can go to a billion dollars or more.
. >> new information on chicago in the laquan mcdonald case. there are allegations that at least three witnesses to the police shooting were questioned for hours and threatened by officers. ordered to change their accounts to match the official chicago police version of that shooting. >> that's all according to attorneys for the estate. here's a look at how they say it happened. >> reporter: chicago police asked to change their story about what they saw after the shooting of laquan mcdonald. these allegations made by
mcdonald's attorneys and scouring over 3,000 pages of e-mails obtained through a freedom of information request. >> at least three eyewitnesses that were in the drive-through of the burger king, that were taken to a police station, separated, put in different rooms and interviewed by police, detectives, sergeants, lieutenants. >> reporter: mcdonald family attorney jeff newslin says one of the truck drivers said he saw "an execution." another started screaming, stop shooting, and after hours of interrogation and no sign of release, he says police asked witnesses to change their stories. >> code of silence. thin blue wall. i think that's an anchored description of what happened here and quite frankly in almost any shooting. >> reporter: police reports state that witnesses and officers on-scene either didn't see the shooting or saw that van
dyke alleged, that mcdonald's raised his knife attempting to kill him. the video later poked holes in the story. the city of chicago responded saying, the police action surrounding this shooting are under investigation by the u.s. department of justice for possible criminal charges and by the city inspector general for possible disciplinary action. the public deserves answers to a number of important questions in this case, and we eagerly await the findings of those investigations. jason van dyke faces first-degree murder charges and has pleaded not guilty. the mcdonald family attorney says that he's in contact with witnesses, and that at least one has testified before a grand jury. now, let's make one thing very clear -- no other police officer has been charged, but we do know that there's an ongoing federal investigation. rosa flores, cnn, chicago.
>> rosa, thank you so much. let's break this down with what's happening in the case. cnn legal analyst joey jackson here. these are obviously serious allegations. sigh awe y i saw you shaking your head watching the piece. what stands out to you in this case? >> this is very significant. you look at a police department and want to have trust and ensure they're engaging in things for the public's good. you have allegations like this, first, you look at a video and we see what occurred and you have officers writing something to the con contrary in terms of having laquan mcdonald lunge at van dyke, we don't see that. he's wielding a knife, so says the officers at van dyke, and we don't see that, and then you don't only have police officers writing to the contrary what the video shows, now you have the added allegation that they were intimidating witnesses to cover it up, and so this makes it, you know -- this really blows the lid off of things, if true in
many respects. number one, not only are you lookingality administrative discipline of these officers at a minimum, if true, in writing things that are pure fiction, allegedly, but you're also looking at criminality. how? when you intimidate a witness saying you saw something that you didn't see, when you invite witnesses back to the police station house to say, i'll let you go home when you tell me what you saw, that wasn't it. right? tell me exactly what you saw, not what you say you saw. we're talking intimidating witnesses. we're talking about a conspiracy amongst officers. we're talking about filing public records falsely, and so these are very significant, and then the next question, christie, becomes, who knew this, and at what level did it go? were these line officers simply coordinating their stories, all allegations, allegedly, were they told or directed to do this by sergeant or superior officers? is that what happened? how high of a level did this go
to? who knew what? when did they know it? and that, i think is what the investigation has to unravel, and, finally, it gets to the point of, if this happened in this case, well, how many other instances did it happen, and should we not unearth every other type of activities police engaged to do see if they told a story then, too. so this is a huge development. >> is it a he said she sa/she s? ho do you prove that this happened? did somebody within the department, does somebody have to crack? >> inasmuch as there are actual documents attributable to these witnesses it doesn't become a he said/she said, you ba you have witnesses looking at apparently records, in the freedom of information request, what they say the witness' statements were and then the same witnesses saying, i didn't say that, or that's not what happened, or they coerced me to say that, now it's more than a she said/she said, because you have a
document that's actually materializing, right? putting on a piece of paper exactly what you say the witness told you, but then the witness is testifying saying, i never said that, or if that's what the report says, i was coerced to say that. so this is huge. certainly with a federal investigation ongoing here in this case, i think it could blow the lid off of a lot of things and have a lot of political administrative and legal ramifications. >> all right. joey jackson. always appreciate your insight. thank you, joey. >> thank you, christie. >> of course. coming up at the top of the hour, the breaking news in cologne, germany. live pictures of a heated protest underway right now. you see the police there standing between two opposing groups all stemming from the sexual assault allegations on new year's eve. riot police, they are out in full force. we have a reporter there in the crowd. we'll take you there, live. also, new details on the clinton e-mail scandal. the chairman of the senate committee releasing a scathing

we're beginning with breaking news this morning out of germany. right now hundreds of protestors demonstrating over the new year's sex assault that's shaken the country reports that dozens of women were groped and assaulted on new year's eve. >> pictures from what was happening a couple moments ago. i want to wish awe good morning and welcome you. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor plaqblackwell. we heard a bang in the crowd as police tried to control things. german authorities there have identified 31 people, including 18 asylum seekers, as suspects in that attack. >> cnn correspondent atika
shubert is there live. let's listen here to what happened just moments ago. >> reporter: -- appear to be asylum seekers. i'm sorry. some type of a bomb went off. i don't think we need to be worried just yet, but to give you an example of how tense things are, there's a whole bunch of riot police here, because there are right wing protestors over there spoiling for a fight on both sides, frankly. >> all right. that was just a couple of moments ago. i want to bring atika in live and ask you, atika, what are you seeing there now? because it did seem to be getting very chaotic when we talked to you just a few minutes ago. >> reporter: the protests are going on both sides, but they have maintained how they were when i talked to you earlier. just to clarify, the bang we heard, police now tell us it was a firework. so they don't seem to be concerned about that, but it just goes to show how tense
things are. behind me, a slightly better perspective this time. those are the left wing protestors. you can see them. they've been chanting. we're going to pan over here, and you can see the rows of riot police that are trying to make sure that commuters at the train station can get through, and then beyond them, you can see the right-wing protestors. they're holding up a number of signs, as you can see. one of those signs saying "rapefugees not welcome." a group clearly against refugees. it's an anti-islamic movement. they have been campaigning for quite some time to stop refugees from coming in, to stop migrants from coming in, particularly those from muslim countries. so these attacks, these assaults, have played into these political divisions here in germa germany, and it really brings things to the boiling point, as you can hear from the protestors behind me. christie?
>> let me ask you, atika, we know that the latest reports have 170 criminal complaints from new year's eve. 120 of them, women who say they were groped and assaulted and now 31 people identified as suspects. what are authorities doing to identify, to find those 31 people, and have they arrested anyone? >> reporter: they have arrested some people, but it's really just been a handful, and this is part of the anger. trying to find out how they will bring the perpetrators to justice. what police have said is they're still trying to establish the facts that happened on that night, on new year's eve. it happened at the square right by the train station. it was completely chaotic. fireworks going off, a lot of smoke and haze and hundreds and hundreds of people had crowded the square. all that we know is that dozens of assaults happened, but there were about 250 pieces of video that police are now combing through to try and identify
suspects. as you point out, 31 people have been identified as possible perpetrators in those attacks of those 18, asylum seekers. that's really fueled the anger and the divisions between those on the left who have welcomed refugees from the beginning, and those on the right who have opposed them. so it really has caused those tensions to just get much -- much deeper. the divisions to become much deeper and the tensions to become much greater. what the solution is going to be, we don't know yet, but what the government and the police have said is that the most important thing is to identify the people who did this and bring them to justice, victor. >> all right. atika shubert there watching this protest. these counterprotests in cologne. we'll check back with you in a few minutes. cnn law enforcement analyst art roderick is watching along with us here. so, art, we saw the police there. we know, you know, they are dressed in their tactical gear,
but when you've got two opposing crowds that seem to be as massive as they are, and we're going to show you these pictures here again, how confident are you in the controls that they can have there? >> well, i've worked with the german police in the past, and they're very good at handling these types of situations, but this is a pretty volatile situation. you can hear the shouts from each group and they seem to be somewhat in close proximity to one another. hopefully law enforcement there in germany will be able to hold them back. now, i heard that initial report and heard that bang from the fireworks and i took notice of it, as did atika there, your reporter there in cologne, but also i didn't see much reaction from law enforcement or from the crowd, even if it was fireworks. it seemed to me that i would have had more of a response if i was in that particular situation and i heard from fireworks go off in the background. >> well, i guess in their defense, we don't see this from all angles.
we're seeing it from the wuone angle. when we say they're dressed in tactical gear, how well prepared are they? >> usually riot batons and shields. usually helmets and face masks on, but the real forces are probably waiting in the back, hidden in the back, waiting to respond if needed. in the public view, on the camera view, there's probably a lot more hidden in the background or possibly staging in the train station to respond, if the two crowds ever come together. >> do you think that, perhaps, there is a perimeter around this entire situation, and that some of these officers may be plain clothed? >> absolutely. i'm sure they're mixing in the crowds. they're identifying agitators. possibly removing them from the crowd, as we heard earlier, but i think knowing the german police, they probably have this very much under control and have
enough officers hidden in the background. plus, this is by a train station. so, i mean, they have to keep the public being able to move in and out of that train station. so i'm fairly confident that the german police have enough law enforcement officers sitting in the background ready to respond. >> art, when you have a situation like this, and let's say they identify somebody that they need to take into custody. as they do that, do you ever find that, that might amplify the situation and make it worse, if police start to move towards someone? or does that help to diffuse the situation? >> well, it could actually do both. in this particular situation i think the key part here is to identify them and possibly charge them later. that's always a plan that a lot of these types of rallies that are this big and this volatile, that's usually the best technique to use. identify them later. but it sounds like they've identified some individuals already and removed them from the crowd. >> well, and i wanted to ask you
about the 31 individuals that they've identified that they're looking for. atika talked how they're combing through video from new year's eve, to try to find out exactly what happened. when you've got large crowds like that, how difficult is it to decipher what you're seeing and identify people in large crowds? >> it is very difficult. i've done this on several occasions where i'm looking in large crowds for specific individuals that are wanted. it is very difficult, but if you can identify a couple of them, pull them in, a lot of those individuals will talk and tell you who else is around them. so i'm very surprised that they have that many in custody, or at least that are going to be charged, 31 is quite a huge number. i know there was a lot more, but, you know, those individuals will talk and will probably identify others that were involved in these assaults. >> all right. art roderick, we so appreciate your insight on this. he's going to stick with us as we continue to watch the
situation unfolding there in germany. so far no violence. we certainly hope that will continue to be the case. but do seem to be seeing this amp up a little bit as the morning continues. but, art, thank you so much. >> you see this video. imagine the response of people coming out of that train station and have nothing to can do with either protest? >> just thinking, what the heck is going on? >> we'll continue to watch that. >> all right. another big story we're following, to, of course, the recapture of mexican druglord el chapo, returning to the first prison from which he first escaped. plus outrage in michigan over water contaminated with lead. a family talks how they've been impacted. and later, do you have one of the hottest tickets around? powerball. will you be able to say jackpot? and will it go higher before tonight's drawing? >> first thing i'd do is take everybody out to dinner. >> just take care of friends and family. >> pay off my student debt. >> going to just spend it
wisely. 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. you're not thinking about all the money you saved by booking your flight, rental car, and hotel together. all you're thinking about, is making sure your little animal, enjoys her first trip to the kingdom. expedia, technology connecting you to what matters.
we've seen it several times before. but last night in south carolina in the town of rock hill a muslim woman was escorted out for simply standing up as trump questions the motives of syrian, she stood up in protest and then that sparked a big disruption. >> cnn was there and we have more on what happened next and who this woman is. >> reporter: victor and christie, donald trump attracting protestors pretty much everywhere he goes across the country, no exception here in rock hill, south carolina. he drew a crowd of about 6,000 to this university. the rally was going on as it normally does talking about immigration, his republican rivals, of course, hillary clinton. all that fires up this crowd, but about 30 minutes into the rally something different happened. we notice there was a woman standing across the way, standing up. it turns out she's a 56-year-old flight attendant from charlotte. rose hamid, an american muslim
who came to the rally so trump supporter could see what she actually looked like and she could talk with them. she wad silently pro testing and was escorted out. the crowd turned urge eed augus ugly as she was removed. >> what happened, the crowd got this hateful crowd mentality as i was being escorted. it was really quite telling and a vivid example of what happens when you start using this hateful rhetoric and how it can incite a crowd where moments ago were very kind to me. >> it was unclear if donald trump knew exactly what was happening during this rally. not uncommon to be protestors and there were pockets of protests breaking out throughout. his crowd has been fired up about muslims in the u.s. ever since he proposed to ban all muslims from traveling to the u.s. one of his central policy
proposals now. so he campaigned in south carolina. a very aggressive style of campaigning. of course, south carolina has the first in the south primary in just about a month's time, but his first focus is iowa, headed there saturday, locked in a tight battle with ted cruz. a new fox poll out says cruz is leading donald trump. that's why he's spending the weekend in iowa. >> that's not the only controversy surrounding donald trump. this week he's been going after hillary clinton by using her husband's infidelity against her. following from washington, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, christie. donald trump continues to hammer hillary clinton by dredging up her husband's past sex scandals using instagram and twitter to control the democratic power couple, but so far they haven't taken the bait. >> the way she's been treated is just more evidence of the fact that our country has so much hatred towards successful women
and inability to separate that from that of powerful men. >> and taking what sounds like a veiled swipe at donald trump relentlessly attacking hillary clinton for her husband's sex scandals. a strategy of guilt by association. on instagram. >> women's rights are human rights, and human rights are women's rights once and for all! let's keep fighting for opportunity and dignity. >> reporter: on the stump. >> and she wants to accuse me of things and the husband's one of the great abusers of the world? give me a break. give me a break. >> reporter: and on twitter. "i hope bill clinton starts talking about women's issues so voters can see what a hypocrite he is and how hillary abused those women. the woert thing hillary could do is have her husband campaign for her. just watch." a state rubben lawmakers got in on the act talking about clinton's sexual improprieties at a campaign.
>> you are very rude and i'm not going to ever call on you. >> bill clinton won't fire back until trump becomes the gop. >> i have no response. if he wins the republican nomination, we'll have plenty of time to get involved in it. i have nothing except trying to help hillary. >> reporter: and admitted if the attacks hurt him with women voters he'd back off. >> i hit him pretty hard and maybe they won't be attacking me a anymore, because i am somebody that has great respect for women, believe me, and i'll doing a far better job than hillary. i certainly can tone it down. there's no question about that. >> the attacks are good politics for trump. he's trying to hobble bill clinton as he takes to the campaign trail to make his case and clinton bashing is popular for these who deeply dislike the clintons. so much more on the democratic side, avoiding this subject. in fact on friday in iowa,
bernie sanders told a town hall that race should not be focused on the issues, it should be -- excuse me. i messed that up a little christie. bernie sanders says the race should be focused on the issues, not what he called bill clinton's disgraceful behavior. >> we knew exactly what you meant. thank you. and i want to bring in our political panel. cnn political commentator and host of "the ben ferguson show" ben ferguson along with ceo of a public relations firm and former white house communications director during the clinton administration. good to have you both, and i want to start with you, don. i watched you in the monitor during that report on rose hamid at rock hill. what's your reaction? >> i think it's a shame we're seeing the level of hostility that is being raised right now. i don't know rose hamid.
she seems to be a well-spoken, intelligent woman. she was there peacefully, and it was not a good scene. i think there is some very difficult anxiety hostile situations going on in our country right now. what we really need to be focusing on in this election more than perhaps at any time in my lifetime are the issue, the really serious issues that the country and the world is facing. economic growth, how to share that growth in a way that really helps everyone in this country. how do we deal with a very, very difficult world that has a great deal of hostility in it? how do we have the kind of stable, strong american leadership that will enable us to do all that, and it's a shame, i think, in a way to have these distractions. >> ben, we've seen from polling to a consistent period now that national security is the top issue for voters regardless of party affiliation, if they have no party affiliation and there are some concerns, but how does donald trump or any other candidate strike a balance where
you express these concern, tell people you understand, but remember if elected president you have to be a president for all people of all religions? >> well, i think donald trump has pretty much said i'm going not to be political correct like all the other politicians republican and democratic side and the one top listen to your concerns. a great example is what we're seeing in germany. those are the concerns that many americans have. if you allow refugees in, you may not know who they are or who they're associated with. you saw this trying to assassinate a police officer in philadelphia. the same thing. voters are saying we're tired of being politically correct. we want someone who understands this is a real threat to us. it's time we stop acting like it's not and we want to make sure that we are protected and our laws are protecting us and the way we have people coming into this country, we make sure we know who they are instead of just saying come on in and we'll figure it out later. that seem tos something rezi in
nating with a lot of voters. i don't think she's a victim. she went to protest. the same way a woman went to protest hillary clinton and her husband. she's a rape victim and you've tried to silence every person who ever accused your husband of any impropriety. you're not a victim. when you're standing up and everyone else is sitting down, yes, that is peaceful, but don't asked like you're a victim when someone asks you to leave and everyone's focusing on you. the same at someone standing up on the front row of the movie theater. at some point, you're a distraction, even if being quiet. >> they typically don't yell at them, "you have a bomb." >> that's what she's saying. the candidate didn't yell that and people she said were also very nice to her. again, she came in pushing an agenda. she wanted to become famous over this. she wanted to be interviewed over this. she wanted to the center of
attention and the spectacle. you're not a victim knowing you're purposely going there to disrupt an event. that is what protestors do. >> let me kcome to you the feud between the clintons and donald trump. we heard former president clinton saying he's not going to respond until he is the general election nominee for the republicans. there has to be a balance that must be struck between staying above the fray and having your head in the sand. have they struck that balance? we understand that if things are ignored for an extended period of time, look back to 2004 in the swift boat veterans for truth, that they can start to damage a candidate's narrative. >> you know, this is an old story. the republicans attacked the clintons about their personal lives back in the 1990s during the period of impeachment. it didn't work well for the republicans. newt gingrich lost his speakership as a raumt of iesul.
republicans lost control of the house of representatives. president clinton left office with one of the highest ratings of any american president. left office with the longest peace time economic expansion at that time that we had ever had, and the reason for that is that he, like hillary clinton now, stays focused on the issues that really matter to the american people. how are we going to grow this economy? how are we going to share the growth in that economy? how are we going to be a strong nation in the world and be a leader in the world to help bring greater stability to the world and peace? these are the things people care about. i understand what ben is saying about the concerns people have. i know that those are real. the essence of leadership is not to exacerbate concerns. the essence of leadership is to point the way what you're going to do in order to help solve those concerns, and i think that -- i hope that this campaign is going to center on those kinds of things, and not on these personal attacks and i think those who focus on the real issues and how to deal with
them for the american people are going to be the winners this year. >> victor -- with hillary's campaign, look, bill clinton, i've said this a long time. he is her biggest asset and biggest liability. she made a really bad political mistake coming out and attacking donald trump on sexism when she has a liability that she knows exists with her husband, monica lewinsky, you know, every other accuser that's accused bill clinton of these things. people know that bill clinton has a woman issue, but when you claim that you're somehow going to be this you know, champion of every woman that ever accuses someone of sexual impropriety yet you tried to silence and destroy every woman that ever accused your husband of something, this was just a dumb political move by hillary clinton. she should have never gone there with donald trump. it's going to now be an issue in this campaign, more that it would have been before. if you noticed, no one else was talking about this until she somehow tried to act like she's a massive champion, when if you look at the facts, every woman that ever got in the clintons way, and this is true that tried
to come after bill clinton, they tried to destroy their personal integrity, and that's wrong. >> we've heard from the clintons they're going not to respond and heard from the candidate herself she's not going to respond to many of these claims made by donald trump. we'll see if that holds. thank you both. >> thanks. >> thanks. >> christie? all righty. next on "new day" now the drug king, el chapo, is back in custody. would would mexican authorities, a lot of people are asking, put him in the same prison from which he escaped? and is he going to be extradited to the united states? we have the report. and breaking news. protestors in cologne, germany. you can see the plethora of police and s.w.a.t. team members that are on hand to try to keep things calm. we'll take you there as well. stay close. ♪ bleeding gums? you may think it's a result of brushing too hard. it's not. it's a sign of early gum disease...

following a deadly shoot-out and escape through sewers after he tried to escape through a manhole and this video. him pebeing transported back. made him turn his head to face cameras and continued on. cnn's nick valencia live from mexico city. so this -- i was reading how he was captured and i thought, this could be a movie script for all we know. talk to us about what you've learned, and, really, how humiliating that moment must have been for him, when they turned his face to all of you. >> reporter: let's start there. i was there when the press conference happened yesterday at that airport hangar for the mexico attorney general's office, and it was just remark chilling, christie, to see a seemingly larger than life kingpin reduced to being paraded in front of the media. we were all there waiting for that moment to see el chapo. when he finally emerged he was
escorted by some mexican soldiers at which point they stopped forcing his face towards cameras for us all to see. as quickly as he was looking at the cameras he was whisked away, put on that helicopter and taken to the prison. you mentioned a lot of nerves about him going there. not just among residents near mexico but also in the united states. this is the same prison he escaped from in july of last year. granted it is different leadership. a lot of those prison officials that were in charge of the prison has either been fired or resigned, even still, this is the prison that el chapo knows very well and the moment that he escaped was an incredibly embarrassing moment for the mexican government. especially the president. yesterday we heard a tone, a tone of pride, if you will, from the president talking about the capture of el chapo. >> translator: this morning the municipality of los mochis, members of the security institutions of the government of the republic managed to
arrest joaquin el chapo. his capture were the result of the corporations of intelligence and security and -- persecution of justice of the mexican state. >> reporter: of course, overnight we learned new details of perhaps what could have led to ep chal el chapo's capture. it could be his ego. we're told he reached out to actors, actresses, el chapo wanted to make a movie about this life. it was those producers and actresses that let authorities know that was happening and neighbors in the area that had seen el chapo was eventually pinned down in. seen people with heavy weapons and notified authorities, but it was his ego, perhaps, christie, that could have played as big a
role as any that led to him being behind bars and his arrest. >> nick valencia. vaunk so mu thank you so much. when we come back, a philadelphia police officers survives an attack by a gunman who says he was acting in the name of isis. this morning fellow officers are now speaking about how their colleague survived? and we continue to follow the breaki news. protestors in germany. pictures of riot police standing between those that want to keep refugees from syria and elsewhere out, and those who are saying, welcome. this, after 120 reports on new year's eve of we'll being groped and sexually assaulted. looking for 31 suspects, and 18 of them asylum seekers.
technology designed for you. so you can easily master the way you bank. hwe'll match any competitorse best prprice. this? what about this? price match guarantee. and this? yep! so no monkey business, no tomfoolery? oh, we do have tom foolery, tom. staples has a price match guarantee. make low prices happen. staples make more happen.
31 of the suspects identified to police do appear to be asylum seekers. it cause add huge rift -- i'm sorry. some sort of a bang went off. i don't think we need to be worried just yet. >> you heard there the loud bang, the escalating and shouting outside a railway station in cologne. >> hundreds gathered to protest assaults on dozens of women. german authorities identified 31 people including 18 asylum seekers as suspects.
we are keeping aen e ean eye on story. the bang doesn't seem to be threatening, we'll keep touch on that. and recovering from a local hospital, being shot three times in what police are calling an isis-inspired attack. >> he stated that he pledges his allegiance to islamic state, follows allah and that is the reason he was called upon to do this. >> police officer jesse hartnett was seriously wounded but somehow was able to chase the suspect edward archer, even shooting him before archer was apprehended by other officers. >> now the investigation focuses in on possible terror ties as the fbi release new details an the suspected gunman. live in philadelphia we're following this story. what have you learned this morning?
>> reporter: well, the police and the authorities, the frauedl level are digging in every aspect of archer's life. the incredible bit of this story is just how this officer survived this and how surprised he was by the shooting itself. 33-year-old jesse hartnett was on routine patrol in west philadelphia. had his window down. somebody flaked him down. as he slowed to a stop to ask whats wa going on that's when edward archer rushed to his window shooting over and over again. at one point his hand was all the way in the squad car and then he ran off, and amazingly, that's when this police officer was able to jump out of his car. his left arm at this point completely useless, chased down the gunman. get at least one shot off that hit him in the butt allowing other officers to arrest him and all this while talking to the dispatcher telling him his own condition. he was bleeding profusely. here's what his father had to
say about his own son. >> how are your spirits? >> spirits? positive. >> did you get this call to come right here? >> yes. knocked on my door, ringing my phone and i woke up and i seen philadelphia police. i was hearing some -- they were excellent. yes. >> what did they say to you? >> well, there's been an incident. he's in the hospital and they didn't want to give me much information until i got here. they were very thorough. yes. excellent response. scared me. >> reporter: i'm sure it scared the hell out of him. one of those bullets went through his bone, shattering the bone of that officer. another cut through the artery. he has extensive nerve damage. it is a big question as to how fully he will be able to recover from all of this, but this entire city pulling behind him. this as authorities are digging into that life of edward archer. he didn't speak to police for quite some time and then when he did, he made that very sort of
inflammatory statement that i believe in allah. i pledge allegiance to the islamic states and that's why i did what i did. now they are trying to figure out was anything behind that? was he in contact with others in this country or overseas? was he just reading stuff on the internet? his mother did an interview with "the inquirer" here saying he suffered mental problems had been talking to himself and felt he was being targeted by police. back to you. >> many, many questions, a complex investigation, it's just beginning. miguel marquez on top of it in philadelphia. thanks very much. bring in law enforcement analyst and special agent jonathan gillum and as well as a naval officer. thank you both for being with us. jonathan, start with you. now that we know the fbi is involved in this investigation, they released information about archer's travel abroad. what happens from this point
forward? >> i can guarantee you right now there's been massive badatabase checks from the time this started until now. looking at any social media he may have used and his phones. it's interesting. 50 years ago -- i would even say 30 years ago -- investigations were so much different in that they weren't focused so much on electronics and social media. nowadays, that's just the first place you go. there's a footprints, just like in the old days, look at footprints, physical footprints, now they're looking at electronic footprints and looking overseas at the data that may have been collected on any chatter to see if this guy was actually physically recruited and taught, and i think that's when they're going now to see if he had any connections overseas. >> this is the fourth isis-inspired attack in the u.s. the police commissioner richard ross said when they were talking
to him yesterday after he was in custody that he didn't implicate anyone but seems adroit at navigating around those conversations. what do you make of that characterization of his ability to not give them the answers that they're looking for? >> first of all, i want to say that i'm hopeful that the officer recovers quickly and speedily and my thoughts are with him. look, honestly, this seems -- there's aspirational and operational when it comes to terrorism. this was not an isis-organized attack. most likely someone suffering from a mental disorder, and as awful as it is, it is just that and just shows how difficult and dangerous policing continues to be. this is not paris and it's important to distinguish those two things. >> okay. and he brings up actually, jonathan, what the suspect's mother has been talking about. she came out. she talked to the "philadelphia inquire e" saying archer was
"kind of strange lately, he was hearing voices in his head." how do you distinguish what is truly a mental instability and what may have been a terrorist act? >> well, you know, this is an interesting question you're asking, because the fact is, if he did this, whether he's mentally deranged or not, and he did it in support of whatever his mind was telling him, whether it be because he's very religious and got recruited by the wrong people, at the wrong time, or if he has a mental problem and that's just what he connected to. we have to see if he had contact with other people, and we have to, you know, really take into account what he's focusing on. because here's the thing -- just because he never had contact over there, it still can be connected to terrorism in the way that he is carrying out the operations that isis can't do themselves, and so that's what a
home-grown terrorist is all about is that they're a home-grown operative and may be inspired to pick up and do a simple attack like this. >> i'm wondering, would you anticipate that isis would come out and, i don't know, claim this? not claim it? >> you know, sure, why not? they'll take anything. they're terrorists. they want to take credit for anything that does exactly that. causes terror. going back to what jonathan said. he's right. there are home-grown terrorists inirintoed people, never left this country, done nothing more than read the internet. we saw it in chattanooga. this is is a huge problem but it's also important to separate from an intelligence perspective when talking about something that is isis-controlled which is, there's money, there's backing, there's trading, there's people that are sent specifically to a country as we saw in paris with the specific goal of carrying out terror. this is a very different thing, and it's important to note that, because it requires two different approaches for both
detection and encountering. >> it's an evolution, really, is what it is. in terrorism. >> it changes the, changes the investigation certainly. we appreciate both of you. thank you for being here. >> you got it. ahead on "new day" more of our breaking story in cologne, germany. hundreds of protestors outraged over the new year's sex assaults that rocked the country. counterprotests happening there as well. we'll go back there live for an update, and here in the u.s., outrage in michigan over water contaminated with lead flowing into flint. over 100,000 affected. emergency measures are in place. but -- is it too late? your path to retirement... may not always be clear. but at t. rowe price, we can help guide your retirement savings. for over 75 years, investors have relied on our disciplined approach to find long term value. so wherever your retirement journey takes you, we can help you reach your goals.

more now on our breaking news out of germany. protestors demonstrating in cologne. >> cnn's correspondent atika shubert is live from cologne. atika, i know it got a little dicey earlier this morning. we heard what seemed to be an explosion. i know you have since found out it was fireworks, but what are you seeing there now? >> reporter: the things have calmed down a little bit in part because the right-wing protestors have gone for their march. a bit more distance between them. i want to show you the crowds.
numbers from police, 1,300, approximately, protestors from the left side of the political spectrum here. these are protestors who have come to vote for solidarity, for the victims and also to continue supporting the refugee policy in place in germany. you see a few flags that say "refugees welcome" for example. they've completely cleared -- police completely cleared. only allow those with train tickets to go through. otherwise, it's been completely cleared. the reason for that, as you say, the tensions were building earlier. if you come around and see at the front of that, you've got a group here that's a lot more militant and they've been chanting at some of the right-wing protestors on the other side. that protest is now in the midst of its march. it will come back around shortly, and then these, these protestors behind me will also do a march through the city as well. in between all of this are the
rows of riot police. they're trying to maintain calm and so far, despite a few fireworks, and a few threats shouted back and forth, things have been relatively calm, christie? >> atika shubert in cologne. thanks so much. meanwhile, a state of emergency has been declared for thousands of people in michigan. months after researchers discovered toxic levels of lead in the water supply. this is really serious. look at the bottle of contaminated water there. men, women, children, all possibly filled their bodies with that stuff for more than a year. cnn sara ganim has the latest. >> i'm paying for poison. paying for water that's -- a toxic waste. >> reporter: rhonda kelso and her 12-year-old daughter are among the many residents of flint whose blood levels tested high for lead after the city switched its water source.
in an attempt to cut costs, city officials stopped getting the pre-treated water from the city of detroit in 2014 and instead began using water from the nearby flint river. >> the water would come in brown and my daughter was like, mom, you know, the tub. you know, to take a bath. why is the water brown? >> reporter: the problem was that the flint river is 19 times more corrosive than lake huron. detroit's water source, according to researchers at virginia tech and the city wasn't treating it according to federal law. lead pipes began to corrode. leeching into the water. >> if you were to put something in a population to keep them down for a generation and generations to come, it would be lead. >> reporter: this doctor is a pediatrician at flint's harley children's hospital. >> it is a well-known poteic neurotoxin. there's tons of evidence on what lead does to a child, and it is one of the most damning things
you can do to a population. it drops your i.q., affects your behavior, linked to criminality's pi multigenerational impacts. there is no safe level of lead in a child. >> reporter: after hearing her patients complain about water that looked and smelled and tasted funny, she decided to investigate. using publicly available data on lead levels in children in flint, she found that the percentage of lead in kids doubled, even tripled, in some places after the water switch. >> when we saw it, when we saw that it was getting into children and when we knew the conventi consequences of it, that's when we began not to sleep. >> reporter: how this happened, the corrosive flint river water goes from the plant to the service lines to homes. in flint, the water mains are made of iron, which turn some of the water brown. and half of the service lines and pipes in flint homes are made of lead.
for at least a year city and state officials denied thinkian was wrong. the former mayor drank the water to make a statement. >> in retrospect i regret all of it. all the way back from seeing the city move from a different dr k drinking source. you can't but a char amoudollarn the city, our kids. it was completely avoidable. >> reporter: christie, we're here at the flint water plant, but there's no water here, because in october the city actually switched back to the detroit water source. the thing is that experts say that doesn't mean the drinking water in flint is safe now, because the pipes were so badly damaged. and the crazy thing about all of this is that the fix was about $100 a day. all of this could have been avoided for just that small amount of money. christie? >> wow. appreciate it. thank you.
filmmaker michael moore from flint, michigan is calling for the united states attorney general to prosecute governor rick snider over his handling of the flint water crisis. watch? >> it wasn't caused by mother nature. it was caused by a governor who was trying to save a few dollars, and force the city to stop drinking clean water, and instead drink poisoned water. listen, if they are at fault, i'm just as angry at the epa. obama, the democrats, epa, nobody gets a pass on this. nobody gets a pass on this. the children of flint have been poisoned. that lead, you can't get the lead out of the system, and -- they are going to have permanent brain damage. their i.q. level will never be as high as it would have been. >> congressman dan kildee joining us now, representing flint, michigan. thank you so much, congressman, for being with us. first of all, your reaction to what michael moore is saying.
do you believe the governor or somebody should be prosecuted in this case? >> well, the justice department has opened an investigation, and i welcome that. my view is, that who is responsible, whoever is responsible for the decisions that led to this terrible crisis should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law, and i trust that the justice department investigation will let the facts lead them to whatever conclusion they come to. my concern not only that people are held accountable but the state of michigan, who made all of the decisions that led to this, be held accountable and actually make it right. do the things that they can do to improve the situation for these kids, especially, who have been exposed to high levels of lead. >> no doubt it is an urgent situation to try to remedy what's happened already. a doctor from the university of michigan says that this crisis might not have happened had they been in a wealthier town. let's listen to this for a moment, please. >> this crisis could have occurred elsewhere.
it would likely not have occurred in an affluent community. >> is there credence to what she's saying there? >> absolutely. i don't think, for example, that the decision to go to the flint river water source, a decision made by a state emergency manager, ever would have happened in a more affluent community. i don't think the warning signs that the epa raised, for example, with the michigan department of environmental quality would have been ignored in a more affluent community. it's pretty difficult for me to imagine that there isn't a case here where there's a sense, at the state government, that they can sort of write off places like flint, michigan. well, the people are flint aren't going to let that happen, we're certainly not going to let that happen and now is the time to hold them accountable for these terrible decisions that they have made. individually accountable, but accountable to fix the problem. there are things that can be done. these kids can get help.
>> how do you do that? how do you fix the problem for these children? in other words, what do they need most at this point? do you have a solid gauge on that? >> we do. and, of course, you can't erase the fact that they have been poisoned. >> right. >> but there are things that can be done that improves their life's trajectory. early childhood education. every single child should have every opportunity to get early childhood education. to get nutritional support. not just that it's available but make sure that nutritional support is delivered to these kids. it doesn't change the fact that they've been poisoned but we can help them overcome some of the developmental challenges that will come to this if we just listen to science. they failed to even consult science when they chose the flint river as their water source. but we know from research that there are ways to overcome developmental struggles, whether it's caused by lead or some other source. >> sure. >> the state of michigan has a moral responsibility to make sure that every child who was
affected by this is given every opportunity to overcome it, and they have to come up big and pay for that. >> sure. and quickly, congressman, why did it take a year for this to come to light? >> well, mainly because people at the state of michigan that were aware of these high lead levels, they were informed by the epa, for example, failed to act. >> all right. >> they just failed to act, for whatever reason, and even now, it's been three months since this came to light and the governor just came around to declare a state of emergency? >> all right. >> there needs to be a lot more urgency with this. >> no doubt about it. a lot of people believe that, too. congressman kildee, we appreciate you being here. thank you. >> thank you very much. and we'll be right back. i use what's already inside me to reach my goals. so i liked when my doctor told me i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me.
