bus for every kid. and shamu's final bow. seaworld buckles under pressure from animal rights groups. >> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." the complaints had been mounting for years. black student groups at the university of missouri said that the school president did nothing as they were subjected to racial slurs on a campus that is overwhelmingly white. the pressure built as a student went on a hunger strike and then the football team threatened to stop playing with their coach's backing. resigned, followed by the school's chancellor. and adriana diaz is in columbia. >> reporter: studets celebrated the news after an emotional university president tim wolfe announced he was stepping down. >> i take full responsibility for this frustration, and i tae
inaction that has occurred. >> freedom, freedom! >> reporter: wolfe surrendered to student protesters who spent the last week calling for his resignation, saying he hasn't done enough to address racist incidents on campus, where only 7% of the student body is black. the concerns on mizzou's campus go back as far as 2010, before tim wolfe was president, when during black history month cotton balls were placed on the grounds outside of the black culture center. the students responsible were suspended and charged were misdemeanor littering, not a hate crime. this semester a swastika painted in human feces was discovered in a dorm bathroom. the student body president complained he was called the n word, and several other students made similar complaints. the university president made no comments on these incidents. last month protesters approached the president's car at a homecoming parade. he did not engage. in a statement weeks later wolfe said, "my apology is long overdue.
my behavior seems like i did not care. that was not my intention." >> repeat after me. >> reporter: last week a grad student, jonathan butler, went on a hunger strike. >> it is our duty to fight for our freedom. >> it is our duty to fight for >> reporter: and the protests gained momentum on saturday after the football team said it would refuse to play any more games until the president was removed. butler ended his hunger strike today. >> how do you feel? >> empowered. ready to eat. >> reporter: football coach gary pinkel. >> i didn't look at consequences. that wasn't about it at the time. it was about helping my players and supporting my players when they needed me. >> reporter: the university is set to lose more than $2 million if the football team didn't play saturday. and scott, student activists are still demanding a more diverse faculty and a say in the appointment of the next president. >> adriana diaz for us tonight. adriana, thank you. two city marshals from marksville, louisiana are being
held tonight, each on $1 million bond. they're charged with murder in the shooting death of a 6-year-old boy, the son of a man they were pursuing. david begnaud on a case that the state police chief calls the most disturbing thing he's ever seen. >> reporter: cbs news has learned that video from a police officer's body camera appears to show christopher few with his hands in the air before investigators say he was shot at 18 times by deputy ward marshals norris greenhouse jr. and derrick stafford. mike edmonson is head of the louisiana state police. so you don't know at this point why those two marshals wanted to pursue that man in the first place? >> we do not know that. we're going to find out. >> that's the car that's been shot up. >> reporter: what investigators say they do know is on tuesday night november 3rd at roughly 9:20 p.m. chris few was driving in a white suv with his 6-year-old son jeremy mardis in the front seat.
they were being pursued by the deputy marshals. few came to a dead and end tried to back up. that's when investigators say the deputy marshals started shooting. few, still inside his vehicle, put his hands in the air according to our source. chief edmonson has seen the footage from the police body camera. does it look like christopher few was trying to use that vehicle as a weapon to hurt those officers? >> nothing tells us any of that right now. all we saw was the vehicle backing up. all we saw was the gunfight. >> reporter: jeremy mardis, who had autism, was hit by five bullets in the head and chest. he died at the scene. his father was also shot and is still in the hospital in fair condition. >> officers, did you guys intend to kill that father and son? >> reporter: the deputy marshals turned themselves in friday night. doug anderson is the avoyelles parish sheriff. >> this is a small community. everybody knows everybody. and it's a tragic situation. and everybody is paying the price. >> reporter: 6-year-old jeremy was buried today in hattiesburg, mississippi. the few family attorney says chris, too injured to attend the
funeral, has not yet been told his son was killed. the deputy marshals have not yet entered a plea. he with reached out to their attorneys tonight but have not yet gotten a call back. scott, as for a motive we can confirm tonight investigators are probing whether one of the deputy marshals had a personal grudge against christopher few. >> david begnaud for us tonight. david, thank you. a top federal safety regulator is shifting gears today for the first time and is calling for seat belts in all school buses. kris van cleave is following this. >> reporter: 16-year-old ashley brown's life ended on her way to a high school soccer game when the bus she was riding in crashed. her father, brad, believes a seat belt would have saved her. >> not a day goes by we don't think of her. wounds are refreshened every time we see an accident happen that takes the life of another school child that could have been prevented with lap-shoulder belts on school buss and every motor coach. >> reporter: last month this
virginia, injuring 28. it did not have seat belts. the national highway traffic safety administration estimates four children die every year in large school bus crashes. the agency believes seat belts would cut that in half. >> and it's this big void in our safety system. >> reporter: administrator mark rosekind is hoping change can come without new regulations but currently just six states require seat belts on school buses. and they are expensive, costing between $7,000 and $10,000 a bus. with nearly a half million school buses in the u.s., the cost to retrofit them all could go into the billions. >> seat belts save lives. they should be on every school bus for every kid. let's start figuring out how to make that happen, not what the barriers are but how to get those seat belts on every school bus. >> reporter: brown welcomes the renewed push for seat belts but says it doesn't go far enough. >> saying it as policy is a good step. i think that what is needed is the regulation and law. >> reporter: estimates range
8,000 students a year being hurt in school bus crashes. so in a way this is a bit of peer pressure on school districts and bus makers to install seat belts, and for good reason, scott. nhtsa says if it has to go through the regulation-making process that could take up to a decade. >> our transportation correspondent kris van cleave. thanks, kris. the "cbs overnight news" w almost sixty million americans are affected by mental illness. together we can help them with three simple words. my name is chris noth and i will listen. from maine to maui, thousands of high school students across the country are getting in on the action by volunteering in their communities. chris young: action teams of high school students are joining volunteers of america and major league baseball players to help train and inspire the next generation of volunteers. carlos pea: it's easy to start an action team at your school

hampshire today hillary clinton filed her papers to run in the nation's first primary, a race that's growing sharper by the day. >> that is not hillary's clinton's position at all. >> reporter: vermont senator bernie sanders has gotten bolder in calling out the front-runner. >> i have many disagreements with hillary clinton. and one of them is that i don't think it's good enough just to talk the talk on campaign finance reform. >> reporter: six months ago sanders was reluctant to draw even mild contrasts. >> do you think you'd be a better president than hillary clinton? >> it's not a question of personality. hillary clinton is a very intelligent woman. >> reporter: but he's now begun taking subtle digs at clinton's character. in his first campaign ad. >> an honest leader. >> reporter: and at a democratic dinner in iowa. >> every day i will fight for the public interest, not the corporate interest. >> reporter: on thursday sanders told "the boston globe," "i disagree with hillary clinton on virtually everything." >> is that your experience? do you disagree on virtually everything? >> oh, no. of course not.
that would mean he doesn't agree with me on equal pay for equal work, he doesn't agree with me on paid family leave, he doesn't agree with me on making sure incomes rise including raising the minimum wage. that's obviously not the case. >> reporter: sanders sharpened his rhetoric was clinton was more confrontational than he expected at the first democratic debate and after polls showed her closing the gap here in new hampshire, which is his strongest state, scott. >> nancy cordes on the campaign. nance, thank you. cbs news will bring you the next democratic debate from des moines, iowa on saturday at 9:00 p.m. eastern. our john dickerson, the anchor of "face the nation," will be the moderator. two americans were killed today when a jordanian police officer opened fire at a training center near amman. the two americans worked for a u.s. government contractor training palestinian police. three others were killed. the officer was shot dead. his motive not clear.

office. he was a contractor with a security clearance. >> he had access to that building because he was supposed to be there with full access to secret materials that he never should have been able to get to. >> reporter: paul stockton is a former assistant secretary of defense who led an investigation. he found that after alexis got his clearance to handle secrets he was arrested for firing a bullet through the ceiling of his apartment, arrested for vandalizing a nightclub, and he displayed psychotic behavior. >> it was shocking that he was able to get and retain a security clearance. >> reporter: but alexis retained the clearance because by regulation it was up to him to self-report his crimes to his superiors. otherwise, his clearance would not be automatically reevaluated until it expired after ten years. army specialist ricky elder is a
after he got his clearance he was charged with two assaults, a dui hit-and-run and aggravated battery. it took five years to suspend his clearance after which, during a briefing, he killed his commander and himself. >> how do you assess the national security clearance process as it exists today? >> i think it's elaborate and woefully insufficient. >> reporter: former deputy secretary of defense john hamre says people are clearances should be monitored continuously for signs of mental illness or criminal behavior. >> once you're in you're in. >> once you're in you're in. we should be turning this thing upside down and saying what are the key jobs that are so sensitive that we're going to be monitoring these people intensively, continually. >> if you would like to see our full investigation, you can find it at cbsnews.com. click on "60 minutes." russia could be banned from
