or text and instaff graham. >> have -- instagram. >> ever get to the position you thought you could spot the air marshal on the plane? >> google cracks a thousand dollars a share. and then there's candy crush. are you addicted to that game on your phone? oh, you're not alone. we waite until you hear what that company is making, and about the addiction that is apparently sweeping the nation and even the world. let's get to it. good friday afternoon to you. first from fox from the news deck this afternoon. the search for two convicted
12:01 pm
killers in florida, running loose now after these two guys walked out of prison without the guards batting a single eye. that's because the prison was under orders to set the killers free. orders that officials now tell us somebody forged. the two guys were both serving life sentences for separate murder cases in florida in the 1990s. the widow of one victim says she ills terrified. >> very scary. because if he don't come after my family, possibly he would kill someone else. >> this happened in the past few weeks. one last month, one in the last few weeks in a prison in the florida panhandle. this is that prison, or i was able to manipulate the prison -- moments ago -- at any rate this is a prison in the florida panhandle and right in the center of it, in a very sparsely populated area, just before you get to franklin county, so if
12:02 pm
you good north here in georgia and alabama, good to the east, the point is they could be anywhere. the first guy got out back in september when the court clerk's office received bogus documents that reduced to life sentence to 15 years. while investigating that case the state attorney's office learned that a second killer got out using the exact same trick. and then, those fake court orders included forged signatures from prosecutors. along with the signature of a judge you just might recognize, judge perry, who oversaw the infamous murder trial of casey anthony. the judge says there's no way that 0 these guys acted on their own. >> somebody had to help them. they alone could not do this in franklin. >> there is a jail somewhere -- >> i think someone outside. helped him. >> even one of the killer's 0
12:03 pm
own defense attorney said his former client was not smart enough to pull his ski mask down during the crime. so, phil keeting is live for us. we're learning these guys were spotted after their released at a jail on the other side of the state of florida? >> reporter: yes, shep. back in orlando, from where they came, three days after each of these men were released, jenkins and walker then showed up as they're supposed to, as a fresh inmate released from prison does. they go into the jail in the city where they're going to live to register, and fill out the paperwork that they're a felon. that's what a jail spokesperson says, both of these killers came in there, acted normally, nothing notworthy happened. walked in, filled out paperwork and walked out, never to be seen from again. this happened in the lobby of the jail so no video. the bogus release of prison
12:04 pm
documents, basically appeared to come from the state attorney's office, were signed by the state attorney, fake signature, and a fake signature by judge perry, and basically argued these men should be released from prison now because they were convicted not of first degree murder but third degree murder, so after 15 years, they really should be set free and that's what happened. >> what do you hear about the manhunt? >> reporter: the manhunt is widespread. the florida law enforcement will not give us special details but it's intense. clearly they're folk can you goes on their circle, social and family circles, in orange county, but these guys could be anywhere right now. but the department of law enforcement is also examining a third instance that happened this past spring, also involving a convicted killer who hailed from the orlando area. his name, jeffrey forbes. it appears he tried to do the same there to get released from
12:05 pm
his life sentence far earlier than he should have, but somebody in the department of corrections this past spring spotted something was not right, and so his terrific did not work. forbes remains in prison serving his life sentence. >> phil keeting, live in south florida, thank you very much. let's get to analysis on this, larry levin is with us, he served ten years in a federal lockup and went on his own to start his open company, called wall street prison consultants, and larry his shades are live with us today. nice to see you. >> glad to be here. >> it's my understanding that nobody in this prison facility in the panhandle even contacted those who supposedly signed off on the documents, but didn't sign off on them, they were forgeries. >> they wouldn't have to. they got an order that came down from the court. but they're supposed to verify with the court clerk to ensure they documents are real, but if they had it would have come back validated anyway. so as far as i can tell, the
12:06 pm
florida doc followed procedure. >> this to you looked like an inside job. >> ed would have to be. more than likely a paralegal, lawyer, somebody with knowledge on the outside created these documents, they forged and put the seal on them, so somebody at the courthouse inserted them into a stack of other documents, so they did an end run, and then the paperwork just got distributed normally to where it would go anyway. so it went to the florida department of corrections. they then sent it to the prison, giving them the order to release, and at that point the prison should validate it with the court. then the people are free to leave. >> shouldn't this have gone to the appeals court? >> no. this was a post conviction type of thing. a habeas corpus. in other words, an appeal, you appealing something that happened. a habeas corpus, which they used, a collateral attack post conviction, you're going back
12:07 pm
into court and presenting new evidence. you're bringing new issues to the court to rule on. so that goes back to the district court. and in this case they created the motion. the court apparently reviewed it. somebody issued an order, yes, this is granted, and then in turn that's when the offend paperwork started making its way through the court system, and evidently to the prison. >> your background and insight on this is interesting. you were in the system for ten years as an inmate, and as a result you seem to know a bit how this thing works or doesn't work. >> well, when i was in the federal prison in texas, el paso, texas, i ways kind of a jailhouse lawyer, jailhouse litigator, and i had inmates that actually had outstanding state detainers on them and warrants, and what i was doing was drawing up legal motions to the court, asking the court to either dismiss their sentence or run their state sentence
12:08 pm
concurrent with their federal sentence. well, my paperwork looked so good, and i did this in a law library, followed all the procedures, we sent a copy to the court and then sent a copy to the prison telling them we were doing this. the court saw the documents and actually took the paperwork i created and removed the warrantses and detainers off these people. so, the people would have been free to go. but inevitably somebody found out this happened and they tried to get me in trouble, saying i violated law and forged documents. i said, no, i followed policy. you people need to be more on the ball what you're reading and understand the documents. that's a big problem. there's so many different types of court documents from so many different courts that hit the prison, nobody knows what they're reading. >> larry levin, an eye-opener of a take on the prison system. nice to see you. live from los angeles, thanks. >> glad to be with you. a major terror group with a proven record of violence, now

12:15 pm

12:16 pm
>> further specifics on it for you other than to say it was serious enough that we put out a message to citizens but we didn't have anything on the timing or location. >> the westgate attack, these new threats to americans, and also a anybody -- neighborhooding uganda, show that al-shabaab may be taking the step from looking globally rather than just being a regional player. >> thanks very much. google stock hit an all-time high today. surging past $1,000 a share. thanks to a strong earnings report. the stock is up more than 1,000% since the company first offered shares to the public in 2004. at the time they were 85 bucks a share. on paper the company is now worth $337 billion. that's more than the market capitalization of microsoft or hathaway, google is number three among u.s. companies behind only

they make a nice picture on the big wall. as we move from what used to be studio a. >> a federal air marshal facing charges for taking photos. he took his phone as he was sitting in the seats in the airplane, and put it down low as people walked by, and captured the flight attendants' privates. happened yesterday morning. right up the skirt. while a guy was on duty at nashville's international airport. cops say a witness spotted this air marshal using a cell phone to snap the pictures as passengers boarded the flight. they say the witness grabbed the guy's phone out of his hand and called the flight attendant. airport police arrested the air marshal and he confessed to taking a dozen at least inappropriate ping tours. the transportation security administration has responded to this incident with a statement, quoting: tsa does not tolerate criminal behavior. well, that's comforting.
12:25 pm
the agency immediately removed them individual from his current duties and is in the process of suspending or terminating his employment. tsa continues to assist with the investigation. >> prosecutors charging the air marshal with disorderly conduct. with is, mel robbins, a talk show host and a trial attorney. well, you know, it's one thing after another. >> i tell you, the skies aren't safe for anyone, particularly women. what a freak that he is busy, while on work, there to detect and prevent any kind of threat to airlines to airports and passengers, and here he is committing a crime. >> it seems there is no end to these stories. it's important for context to realize they have like 435 million employees, the tsa now. but literally they have like 80,000. when you get 80,000 people in the middle of anything you're going to have some bad eggs, but
12:26 pm
feels like we could do this kind of story every day. >> i think we do seem to do this kind of story every day. the good news in this story is the fact that there was a passenger on board that actually saw this happening and he didn't just hit the call button. he actually stood up and grabbed the guy's phone, and alerted the authorities. basically making a citizens arrest. can you imagine, in the middle of the aisleways as people are boarding this southwest flight. >> i'm guessing that some of the ladies walking in and out with their -- thinking they're covered up weren't happy to see that. you wonder how o. this goes on. >> it's scary to think about. i was thinking you're on a plane and wearing a skirt, you're probably at work, and most of us are probably wearing spanks. i thought, it's kind of hard to take a photo and not have people notice. i was on the new york city subway and i wanted to take a photo of a lady doing something weird, and i held up my phone and she noticed that's what i
12:27 pm
was doing. so i think it happens more than people realize, and i guess what i'm really offended by is disorderly conduct in criminal courts athrowaway charge. you know that. this guy will basically get this smithed and going -- dismissed and that will be that. >> i love the tsa statement that the tsa does not tolerate criminal behavior. >> they just employ people that engage in it. that's all. >> thank you. a doctor in utah is now on trial accused of pushing his wife to get plastic surgery, and then killing her. as she recovered. he claims that he didn't do any of this kind of thing, but prosecutors say he very much did so it he could marry his mistress. think of this, honey, get some plastic surgery, and while ban damaged up he murdered her. even the doctor's own children say he is the man who murdered their mother. the details coming up.

>> we have to stay ready when disaster strikes. that from as he announced his nominee for homeland security security. the man's name is jay johnson, a top former pentagon lawyer and official says he played a major role in the obama administration's use of drone strikes. today the president said johnson has a deep understanding of the threats facing the u.s. >> from the moment i took office jay was an absolutely critical member of my national security team and demonstrated again and again the qualities that will make him a strong secretary of homeland security. >> he said he is a new yorker and his birthday happens to be september 11th and he was here in manhattan on the day of the 9/11 attacks. >> i wandered the streets of new york that day and wondered, and
12:34 pm
asked, what can i do? since then, i have tried to devote myself to answering that question. >> former homeland security secretary janet napolitano stepped down. he said her replacement would need a large bottle of advil. the senate still has to confirm jay johnson, and some republicans say, they do have concerns about his nomination. let's bring in chris wallace. the host of "fox news sunday." jay was a guest on this program once. tell me what you know about him and what his challenges are. >> well, you have talked to him one more time than i have. he is obviously got the president's full confidence. he has been involved in approving every military operation. he was involved in the change in the military on gays serving in the military. i don't think there's any question about the fact that he is in sync with the president on
12:35 pm
policy issues. the only question that i would have is, he is not a manager. he is not somebody who has run -- you think of the people who have been secretary of homeland security. two of the three of them were governors who had run huge operations, whether it was tom ridge under george w. bush, or janet napolitano. this man was a lawyer, and more than anything the department of homeland security is a huge agency, 240,000 employees, spread out across 22 different bureaus, agencies, fema, all kinds of operations, and that is, i guess, the one question, the biggest concern people have about him is, does he know how to run something like this? >> is that what we're getting from republicans today? i read there are questions and concerns. >> yeah. i mean, look, some of the policies issues they don't agree with, but he is the president's choice and is going to reflect what the president thinks on a lot of these issues.
12:36 pm
he certainly is no shrinking violet when it comes to the war on terror. he was very involved in the aggressive expansion of drone policy, and the invasion -- the action in libya. so, i don't think there's any question about that. but i do think there is a question about his experience in running a huge -- this is a huge -- quarter million people -- organization. >> how did we go from department organization that does not exist, to an organization with a quarter million people in, what, 12 years? >> well, i mean, it isn't like a lot of these organizations didn't exist. fema existed. a lot of the other parts of then department of homeland security. so to a certain degree it was taking all of these operations and putting them in one silo under the department of homeland security. of course, that, as you remember, was one of the big issues after 9/11. you had all these stovepiping of information and effort and you wanted to have more
12:37 pm
conversations within the intelligence community and also in homeland security community. >> all right, chris. you know what we're going to be doing this sunday? >> watching peyton manning go back to indianapolis? >> no, we'll be watching fox fox news sunday. how did you get quiet so quickly? your lips are flapping but nothing coming out. we'll be watching chris wallace in the morning, and then peyton manning. on sunday, marco rubio is on tv all the time but this sunday only on fox news sudden. they'll discuss the immigration debate and budget negotiations in d.c., this sunday on fobs news sunday. >> a doctor in utah is now on trial, on trial, accused of killing his wife so he could marry his mistress. his name is martin mcneill, and here he is in 2007 his wife michele died a week after she had a facelift. police say one of the couple's
12:38 pm
young daughters found her mother's body in a bathtub. prosecutors say mcneill pushed his wife to get the surgery, then gave her a deadly combination of prescription drugs before helping her into the tub. medical examiners initially ruled she died of narl natural causes, possibly heart disorder. now the findings were changed to undetermined. prosecutors say the killing was part of a plot to continue an affair with this woman. also the children's nanny. prosecutors say he invited her to his wife's funeral, then asked her to marry him a few things later. defense attorneys say the doctor may have made poor choices but did not kill his wife. yesterday, his one attorney toll jurors being, quote, total jerk does not make the guy a murderer. >> there was court today, dominic, what happened during
12:39 pm
court? >> reporter: a scene you don't formally see in a courtroom. the prosecutor brought in a fiberglas bathtub to demonstrate how mcneill discovered this wife's body floating in the matter. that's the same model michelle mcneill was found in, in 2007. a neighbor was one of the first on the scene, and today krisy daniels described cease michelle's body. >> what do you recall of her face besides the fluid you described? >> um, it was -- to me it was kind of greenish, a little color of greenish. >> reporter: the prosecution has been putting on an emergency dispatcher, and paramedics who expect to testify, and the surgeon who conducted the facelift the week before has given the most insightful item. he said he wouldn't normally prescribe the valium or
12:40 pm
oxycodone for michelle's recovery, but he said he did it because mcneill was a physician and actually asked thompson for the drugs and that's how the prosecution is arguing mcneill gave his wife an overdose so he could marry the nanny. >> from the defense is a case, they started with, he is a jerk but not a murderer. there is more to the defense than that? >> reporter: they say she had a heart disease problem, and that is what killed her. it wasn't her husband, is what the defense said she did have high blood pressure but the couple rejected a physician's advice to delay her surgery until the blood pressure was under control. but the doctor told the court that martin was, quote, eager to get things going in terms of the surgical, and, well, he wasn't charged with her murder until nearly five years after, and its that's quite some time for the prosecution to put their case together and that's the way the defense will go. >> dominic, thanks very much. >> a powerful addiction sweeping
