>> see you back here in an hour. >> "outnumbered" starts right now. harris: we begin with this fox news alert. chaos in charlotte, north carolina, after a black man was shot dead by police. officers used tear gas to try to break up the violent demonstrations while people hurled bottles and bricks at police. at least 12 officers hurt. cars destroyed. trucks looted. interstate was shut down. some in the black community tying it into strength of deaths of black people at hands of police. how to heal america divided this is "outnumbered." host of "kennedy," fox business's kennedy. democratic strategist julie
9:01 am
roginsky. gillian turner, today's #oneluckyguy, iraq and afghanistan war veteran, pete hegseth is outnumbered. >> thanks for having me. harris: as i heard what we are opening up the show with. we have a lot of hard news. >> let's get to it. harris: let's get to it. the city of charlotte is on edge. city leaders pleading for calm, violent protests broke out after shooting after black man by a black police officer. the family of 43-year-old keith lamont scott say he was not armed. police say he was armed and refused their commands to drop his weapon. what happens in charlotte on heals of another controversial police shooting in friday. outrage at killing of 43-year-old terrence crutcher by a female police officer, who says she thought he was reaching for his pocket if carrying a weapons and refused to follow her commands. turns out crutcher was not armed. jonathan serrie is in charlotte.
9:02 am
jonathan? reporter: i'm standing in the driveway of the apartment complex where the shooting went down. on the pavement you can see markings showing exactly where the shooting took place. officers why requiring to serve a warrant on an unrelated suspect when they noticed this man, keith lamont scott. the police chief says his officers felt threatened, listen. >> mr. scott, as i said, exited his vehicle armed with a handgun. as the officers continued to yell at him to drop it. he stepped out, posing a threat to the officers, and officer brently vinson subsequently fired his weapon striking the subject. reporter: that shooting sparked a whole sires of protests. they began peacefully. some protests got out of hand when some demonstrators began throwing rocks and bottles at police. at least a dozen officers were injured. protesters are upset what they
9:03 am
say is pattern of police using excessive force against black citizens. in the charlotte case the police officer identified in the shoot something actually african-american. protesters say that does not mitigate what happened. >> you're exactly right. and it don't matter, whether black or white, he was in blue. reporter: at one point the protesters block ad portion of interstate 85. police had to temporarily shut down the interstate. they managed to clear protesters well in advance of the morning rush hour. city leaders are calling for calm dialogue to replace last night's violence. the protesters say they will be back out near city hall and police headquarters this evening but they say those demonstrations will be peaceful. harris? sandra: jonathan, thank you very much. as we come out to talk about this, kennedy i want to start with you. there was a news conference in charlotte. i don't know if you caught some much it off the top. nation of islam leaders were there.
9:04 am
there was a question that was asked, at least when you looked at black media is there a divide knit black community, what do we do about that because this police officer was african-american? kennedy: brings up one of the most interesting divisions. what we saw with the police chief in dallas talk about. instead of taking to the streets, come to the department and there are a lot of black cops in this country. when they are involved in shootings like this, there is a divide, they are placed in a completely different section. it is no longer, you know people of the same color and the same community reaching out, trying to do a better job of policing perhaps neighborhoods they grew up in. now if you are a cop, and you are involved in one of these shootings, people extremely vocal like some of the people at the press conference, then you are now part of the blue squad. harris: right. it's the blue now. >> well, yeah, and it should be. it shouldn't be about black or white. it is blue.
9:05 am
you have to put yourself in the shoes of that police officer in that moment, that black police officer, that female police officer. effectively what they have are non-compliant individuals, who are suspected one reason or another. that is where the black community, the motive because they're black they're suspected. you can't get inside of the head of police officer. in contentious situation. another one they had a gun. much larger suspect than a female suspect is going towards a vehicle. these police officers make split-second decisions every single day. to hear community leaders call for more rioting, protesting, that was last night it was lawlessness. harris: is that what you heard? >> nation of islam leader talked about a economic boycott and more violence on streets. the black police officer, said he with will enforce the law. black people deserve it just like white people. harris: this is my criticism with the colin kaepernick and hashtagging all of that gone on
9:06 am
leading up to these points now. the real issues, gillian are not being dealt with. if there are questions about certain police officers and how they deal with things, are we focusing on getting unity together or are we just hashtagging ourselves? >> that is the key. i don't want to sound like a care bear here, but unity is the key. what happens in the wake of these incidents the focus is not on what actually took place but on looting and on lawlessness in the streets of these small towns. on cars being stolen. really, people have to at a certain point hear the community leaders stand up and say violence and looting and going out into the streets is not the answer. that's going to undermine all of your objectives when it comes to trying to bring about racial inequality if you're the "black lives matter" movement. harris: the black president we have right now has waded into some of these issues along the way. what should president obama do now, julie? julie: he should echo exactly
9:07 am
what gillan said, no matter how outraged violence is not the answer, looting is not the answer. violent protests are not the answer. i find it interesting in some quarters people are more outraged about colin kaepernick taking the knee then they are about an unarmed black man being shot in tulsa. >> that is false narrative. >> i don't know this narrative is false. you're suggesting the narrative -- >> been false in many instances in the "black lives matter" movement. the truth doesn't matter. hands weren't up. that should matter. >> in some instances they were born out to be right much. so the point here we all need to wait and see what happens. we don't know what happened in tulsa. tulsa was more complicated. it was unarmed black man. this police officer -- harris: female. >> she felt he was reaching forge something. he wasn't reaching for a gun. >> hold on. you can't let that go. if she is telling him to stop and this is big dude, black or white, big dude, walking back to his car and saying stop and he is walking backward --
9:08 am
>> that is narrative. >> there is videotape. i watched it. harris: kennedy. kennedy: quickly, because it seems like, you know, first of all, we have to be able to separate these instances. as rational observers we have to be able to say what happened in tulsa is different than what happened in charlotte. different circumstances. there were different victims. there were different police officers involved and here in tulsa the problem that i have is the bad communication between the officers because if one is using lethal force and other is using a taser or stun gun, then they're not talking to each other. >> can't get inside the police officer that view -- kennedy: they have to get inside each other's heads with bert communication. we have to be able to have the conversation. >> people perceive threats differently. julie: cop pulls me over and doesn't assume i'm a threat and shoots. you assume every time -- >> put their lives on the line
9:09 am
for us and you can't relate unless you have been there. doesn't know what he pulled out of the car. julie: getting shot with absolutely no compunction -- harris: speaking to that issue, statistic more whites are shot and killed by police officers. let me finish than blacks are. >> if cop tells you stop, stop. if you don't stop and reach into the window. that is problem. julie: that is cop's assertion. >> a pretty zare assertion. kennedy: you don't think police officers are trained to communicate with one other using force? >> i do as platoon leader people presume threats differently. you can't get inside everybody's head. harris: put a button on this. you bring this up. we have a lot of members of our military coming back. some of them choosing to serve in different police departments. some of that tactical strategy and information sharing will be something needed in the police department. >> we can do better. harris: not just to fight
9:10 am
terrorism, exactly what kennedy is doing, make sure you're watching your six and watching your neighbor in front of you an knowing what everybody else is doing. we don't know what happened in these instances. wait for the evidence. kennedy: for the record -- fox news alert. we're getting new information on the man accused of planting bombs around new york and new jersey. federal authorities filing terrorism charges against ahmad khan rahami. the criminal complaint he raged in a journal as what he viewed on american attacks for muslims. he looked for guidance from people like radical cleric anwar al-awlaki, killed in a drone strike in 2011 and usama bin laden. his arrest marks four attacks carried out since last september by american citizens that spent time in afghanistan, pakistan or saudi arabia. rahami visited afghanistan and pakistan several times. the orlando nightclub shooter went to saudi arabia and philadelphia police attacker and the san bernanadino killer.
9:11 am
obviously, pete, this is something that all of these terrorists have in common. so, what can law enforcement do? what can the fbi do better to figure out the motivations and possible radicalization? what can they do to get to the heart of radicalization before these events take place? >> first of all all of these underscored how overwhelmed our intelligence agencies truly are the volume of information, volume of travel and the volume of threat. because somebody goes to saudi arabia, could be part of a hajj, doesn't mean they will be a terrorist. but you make multiple visits to quetta or afghanistan -- >> what if you're from there? >> we don't know where they go once they get there that's the problem, if you're from there. what i heard from a lot of fbi agents and others people talk, sounds like a talking point, political correctness ties hands of law law enforcement official. that they may be accused being
9:12 am
islamophobic. harris: citizens feel that way too. kennedy: say hypothetically that this terrorist's father called the fbi and said my son is up to no good. he is stabbed my other son and he hit my wife. julie: says hypothetically the fbi said, hypothetical is the word. harris: tell our audience that -- julie: we're all laughing because it is not hypothetical. what makes no sense to me not that the fbi didn't do due diligence and investigated that he is not a suspect but to your point, pete, we are overwhelmed. so many people travel this way. so many people go back to the homeland. he is from afghanistan. he was seven-year-old immigrant who came here from afghanistan. his father had fought on the side of mujahadeen which trained a lot of terrorists but was on our side when the mujahideen was in existence in the '70s and 80s.
9:13 am
what do you do with somebody like that. he is entitled to due process. if you profiled him what could you have done? to me the question is you're not radicalized and not a terrorist until you commit a terror attack. harris: just to kind of complete what you're saying, he was radicalized to the point people were noticing it when he was coming home. you are radicalized when you are. the question when do you take action? there is a news conference going on right now. the fbi is distributing the following poster. pop it up. i hope we got it together. seeking information on two individuals spotted on surveillance camera recordings along one of the streets where that unexploded device was here in chelsea, the chelsea neighborhood of manhattan. their advisory notes that these individuals re moved the unexploded pressure cooker device from a piece of luggage. leaving behind the device and taking luggage with them. it is not immediately clear if they are associated with rahim my.
9:14 am
that is information. we're watching news conference happening right now in in new york city. they start to release information we'll bring it to you live. this is really interesting, pete. >> it sure is. you don't pull a pressure cooker out of a piece of luggage and not say something. we have a see something, say something problem in the muslim community, that is what ask comes down to. if people saw the red flags, this guy is plotting something or saying something, that is problem. sandra: if they called the fbi -- >> seeing it in real time, call that out in real time. if america is your country and your allegiance is to america -- kennedy: maybe our national security apparatus is overrun we're spying on too many people and not focusing on bad guys. perhaps the net is too wide. what is not wide? the length and width of the time making up how many days we are away from the first presidential debate. that is five days. now reports hillary clinton is pressing for a tale of two donalds.

9:30 am
that is down from a nine-point lead. that was just last month. polls show other swing states tightening as well, raising new questions about clinton to stick to traditional playbook. that strategy didn't work fork trump's gop rivals and not working for her. former aid to senator ted cruz everybody in the primary at one point or another take donald trump down. the way you take someone down says absurd things, none of them worked. she is trying to do more of the same, more of the same isn't working. julie, this is what you do for a living. julie: it is. kennedy: you are a democratic strategist. if hillary clinton called you right now on the julie roginsky bat phone, what would you answer, what would you say. julie: i'm on the air, take your phone call this is discussion is better than any advice. keep doing what you're doing because of reasons you're talking about last week. campaigns are about two things. one is about message. she and trump are keeping on message effectively.
9:31 am
she is running incredibly negative ads against him. he is saying negative things about her. less crucial is sexy is organization. that is where her organizing advantage really works, in the sense they have identified their voters. they know who those voters are and they have mechanism to get them to the polls. that is a lot harder to do than people think. and that is something that the trump campaign i know kellyanne conway who is very good, i've known her for a long time. if she had one wish in the world, not speaking for her, would be to have the money and resources to have started earlier organizing in those states. harris: money he is not spending, going to rubber chicken dinners, down time he has, sometimes he spends it tweeting whatever, could very well make the difference for a woman who is obviously struggling now, a, physically, and b, spending millions an millions of dollars in negative advertising which he is hasn't having to pay for, constantly on tv. >> correct. harris: he has a different bully

"washington examiner" report finding that 194 of clinton donors were named to advisory boards while she was secretary of state. she gave money to either the clinton foundation, her political campaigns or affiliated groups. those donors are presented, here is the number you have got to watch for, nearly 40% of the total 511 advisory appointments that clinton gave. but the examiner points out, such appointments are not illegal or unprecedented. 40%, that number, nearly, 40, given to people who gave to the things she loved. does it matter? >> of course it matters. i think this is just part of the drip, drip, whether pay-to-play or email that will plague hillary clinton to the very end. later on we'll tell a story about word association. word association words we think

our government does to make sure we don't get into these situations where people are able to sue companies and countries and so on, so forth because of what happens militarily when we hit a village, we know this dating all the way back to vietnam, there is remuneration happens right there instantly. we may rebuild, may compensate families. we know this happened. you served. >> of course. harris: that prevents some blowback if you will legally from families who may have gotten droned accidentally or whatever might have happened. the problem with this that really gets complicated we were hit in unprecedented fashion. this isn't like there was some mistake that was made and we can go into a village to try to do a make-good, which there is never is. kennedy: you're absolutely right. the intent behind that is so clear. i look at these families and i look at saudi arabia and i think we should be so dubious of the kingdom of saudi arabia and they certainly don't have our best interests in mind and you know,
9:46 am
what more are we going to put these families through as country? to appear we're not supporting them. i think there is something vastly different between actors on a battlefield and a country and, there are people there who have been shielded from real examination by these administrations and this government for whatever reason, and it is unacceptable. >> who draws that line going forward? julie: let me second what kennedy said. before we talk about any lawsuits the government needs to be very clear what saudi arabia's involvement was. we still do not know. it has now been many years. harris: how about the 28 pages not redacted? could we learn from that, those classified pages we should see? julie: it is 15 years since the terrorist attack took place. time the government let the american people know exactly what saudi involvement is, and we could talk about a potential lawsuit or not depending what the saudi role was. the problem for me continues to be, the previous administration and this administration in very bipartisan manner shielded very
9:47 am
bad behavior of kingdom of saudi arabia. harris: why? >> because they're an ally. but at some point, but at some point you have to acknowledge that your ally is export more terrorism than your enemy, iran or anybody else ever could. saudis are on par with iranians exporting terrorism. harris: this administration decided redacted but you can't see everything. >> this administration has been a lot tougher on the saudis than its last predecessor. president george w. bush, i commend him for had a personal relationship. i traveled with him to the kingdom in 2008. we all saw first-hand with king abdullah the way they interacted. that was a partnership we had then. today i think president obama is chafing under the legacy of that. >> also emboldened iran in the process. julie, i do like it when i agree with you. julie: excellent. >> outstanding. we'll move on to an eye-opening new survey that they associate words like email and lie with hillary clinton but words like

harris: more "outnumbered" in just a moment. first to jenna lee what is coming up with the second hour of "happening now." hey there, jenna. >> fbi wants to question two men in relation to the weekend chelsea terror attack. we should learn at a news conference at 1:00 p.m. we'll have it live. 47 days to the election. both campaigns are in full swing. poles tightening. we're awaiting donald trump in an event in toledo, ohio. we're awaiting hillary clinton. she is off the trail doing debate prep. we're expecting her in orlando, florida. we have breaking numbers. and which party will control u.s. senate and we don't want to forget about congress. harris: they don't want us to forget about them either. they're persnickety like that.
9:53 am
jenna, thank you. >> new words like email, lie, health, speech, scandal, foundation dominate what americans heard about hillary clinton over past two months. by contrast words linked to donald trump, speech, president, immigration, mexico, convention, campaign and even obama are more varied. based on his campaign activities and his statements. while clinton has been attacking trump on character, the poll finds no specific words negative traits stuck to him way word like scandal and lie have to clinton. harris: because the conversation about the clintons has been going on for decades with those same words. they have stickiness on them. >> there is a lot of time for people, they're not just googling last two months. this is going on and on. harris: from what i've seen. >> thankfully that doesn't apply to the rest of us. if we had to dive by our google search terms. harris: i would be gangly. julie: thanks, wikipedia, i
9:54 am
don't know who wrote that but i will take it. harris: this is awkward for hillary clinton because you're spending how much money? northward of $50 million on negative ads of donald trump. they're like my favorite egg pan, no stick. for her lots of stick. kennedy: what is interesting though, people are actually much more influenced by the things that they seek out. on search engines like google as opposed to political ads that people have really grown numb to. and so it is interesting because after the 9/11 memorial collapse that she had, if you went online searching for video, she has a digital team that, they use something called search engine optimization, mco, very clever acronym. basically a way of controlling what people see about you on search engines. even with that, even with her team doing that and trying to move and delete things and move them way down in search posts people are putting things in
9:55 am
like health, and liar. >> do they offer a subscription service for private citizens? kennedy: for a few million dollars you could have couple of your people given immunity from prosecution. harris: what also fascinates me about this? you always hear the qualms about how much time republican candidates just in general, not just for president, how much time republican lawmakers get in the media and the type of press that they get. hillary clinton you could argue, has gotten very positive when you look on whole. email scandal has been covered but not nearly as much as her walking to chipotle and double rollout of her campaign. >> you really believe that? >> in general she receives overwhelming and fawning coverage. julie: i disagree. barack obama has. hillary clinton has not. >> barack obama got the biggest free pass any candidate ever said. julie: barack obama we agree. kennedy: for example, when the press loses patience with her, when they did after the 9/11

fall because she didn't tell them for 90 minutes, that's when they turned on her. julie: they lose patience from her since day one. she has been more maligned last 25 years than any politician. harris: take a poll. who do you think got most positive press? i will look at my phone. we'll be right back. stay close. the lights go out. people get anxious and my office gets flooded with calls. so many things can go wrong. it's my worst nightmare. every second that power is out, my city's at risk. siemens digital grid manages and reroutes power, so service can be restored within seconds. priority number one is keeping those lights on. it takes ingenuity to defeat the monsters that live in the dark. you're not a firefighter, if you don't fight fires. or a coach, if you don't coach.
