7:09 am
the canopy is actually collapsed on to the train and it's a push/pull configuration where there are three passenger cars with a locomotive at the end. and with that, we're -- we were able to get the recorder out of the locomotive, but we are going to have to wait to get parts of the canopy removed, and so that we can safely access the rest of the cars. >> when do you hope to have some answers? >> we gean what we are doing today is we are having our organizational meetings with all of the people who will -- all of the groups that will give us factual information. so we get technical information from various different organizations, and with that factual collection of data, then we take all of that back. we will be on scene for about seven to ten days, and then --
7:10 am
once the on-scene part is done, we go back and we keep using that information to do our own independent analysis. >> bella dinh-zarr, thank you for your time. >> thank you. in our next half hour, kris van cleave looks at why the train in hoboken didn't have the appropriate train technology that could prevent accidents. >> one of the most-read newspapers is breaking tradition and endorsing anyone but donald trump. "usa today" is taking a stand the editorial board is telling voters not to vote for trump. the paper does not endorse any candidate and has critical words for clinton. but the board says trump is, quote, by unanimous consensus, unfit for the presidency. the election is 39 days away. people in 11 early voting states are already casting ballots. nancy cordes is in ft. pierce, florida, where both candidates are battling for votes. >> reporter: good morning.
7:11 am
theater several hours from now but a crowd has already began to gather. florida is a handful of battleground states where the clinton camp is hoping to use its organizational edge to get supporters like these to the polls well before election day. >> it's a great honor to have her sporting me. she is going to go vote early today. >> reporter: ruly stein decked out her walker and cast voting on the first day of voting in iowa. that is the reason i vote early. i'm not taking any chances. >> reporter: she and other clinton supporters were escorted from a rally in des moines to a polling place and a highly orchestrated effort to run up clinton's vote totals in battleground states, six weeks before election day. >> are you ready to go to the polls. >> reporter: later on her campaign plane, clinton was asked about her favorite world leader.
7:12 am
>> reporter: she was expecting the question one day after it stumped her libertarian opponent gary johnson. >> who is your favorite foreign leader? >> i'm having a brain -- >> reporter: name anybody! >> clinton named angel merkel. >> she has been an extraordinary, strong leader. >> reporter: in new hampshire, trump fielded the same question. >> well, i think merkel is a really great world leader, but i was very disappointed that when she -- this move with the whole thing on immigration. >> reporter: trump has been highly critical of merkel saying at one point she is ruining germany. >> hillary clinton wants to be america's angela merkel. >> reporter: his inconsistencies prompted "usa today" to announce not that they are endorsing clinton, but, quote, disendorsing trump. in an eight-point take-down, the editorial board called trump a dangerous demagogue who is ill equipped to be commander in
7:13 am
and who traffics in prejudice. on clinton, the board split are some expressing reservations about her sense of entitlement and lack of candor and extreme carelessness. "usa today" did allow trump's running mate mike pence to issue a rebuttal to that disendorsement in the paper. he called donald trump a bold leader, comparing him to ronald reagan who, pence said, also made some republicans uncomfortable initially with his unique style. donald trump is not letting go of the controversy over his comments about a former miss universe. he lashed out on twitter overnight to attack alicia machado and her support of hillary clinton. trump has been outspoken about the beauty queen's weight. major garrett is here with the trump's latest attacks. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. early this morning, about 5:15 a.m. precisely, donald trump fired off a trio of tweets personally attacking former miss universe alicia machado.
7:14 am
using her as, quote, a paragon of virtue shows bad judgment and trump urges his some 12 million twitter followers to look into a sex tape and ask, did crooked hillary help disgusting alicia m become a u.s. citizen so she could use her in the debate? this, of course, all began when hillary clinton brought up trump's own words about machado at the first presidential debate and reminding he referred to machado as, quote, miss piggy. as owner of the miss universe competition, trump sougha weight loss campaign for machado. she was implicated in a 1997 murder case in venezuela and accused of threatening a judge, but never charged on either county. this episode, once again, underscores there is only really one person running the trump campaign, donald trump. but those around him are trying to rein him in and bringing in new jersey governor chris christie to try to help trump
7:15 am
giving him attack lines because trump respects the way christie took down marco rubio before the new hampshire primary and his advisers hope trump can do the same thing in preparation for round two. >> what kind of a difference will it make? everybody says chris christie is a very good debater. >> he is but it's all about the focus that donald trump brings to the task and he didn't bring a requisite focus the first time around' those who wish he would. it's entirely up to him and whether he believes the lost the first debate, which i'm still co does, does he need to change his methods? until trump changes himself, those around him only struggle with the topic. >> we did learn today he likes to get up early and likes to tweet. >> early morning tweeting, no doubt about that. >> at 5:15 precisely, you say. got it. world leaders said good-bye to israeli former president and prime minister shimon peres.
7:16 am
he also said peres' dream of peace in the middle east is not over. holly williams is in jerusalem at the funeral. >> reporter: good morning. shimon peres was a giant of israeli politics. a man who made israel stronger by building up its military, but also a tireless peace maker. they came to jerusalem from all over the world. presidents and prime ministers to pay their final respects to a man who tried to bring peace to his people and to the middle east. >> shimon accomplished enough things in his life for a thousand men. he understood it is better to live to the very end of his time on earth with a longing not for the past, but for the dreams that have not yet come true. >> reporter: palestinian leader mahmoud abbas was also here today shaking hands with israeli's prime minister benjamin netanyahu. as israeli's foreign minister, shimon peres opened secret negotiations with the palestinians, which led
7:17 am
signed in 1993 on the white house lawn. the first agreement between israel and the palestinians aimed at ending their conflict. it won peres the nobel peace prize but didn't deliver lasting peace in the middle east. >> now he is gone. leaving only a blessed memory and a powerful example. that's more than enough. >> reporter: bill clinto friend. >> shimon was being interviewed by charlie rose and he looked at him sort of saying, i'm going to serve a softball up to you. and watch you hit a home run. what do you want your legacy to be? and he said, i'm more concerned about tomorrow than yesterday. >> reporter: shimon peres was
7:18 am
along with other israeli leaders. >> holly williams in israeli, thank you. a teenager accused of shooting three people at a south carolina elementary school is due in court this morning. the officials have not named the 14-year-old because of his age. a judge will decide if he can be freed on bail. he is also accused of killing his father at home before shooting two students and a teacher on wednesday at townville elementary school. jacob hall is still in critical condition and authorities are trying to determine a motive. >> hurricane matthew strengthened to a category 2 storm overnight and could be stronger today. it hammered puerto rico yesterday with heavy wind and rain and triggered floods and landslide. a teenager was killed in the nation of st. vincent. matthew is heading west across the caribbean and could turn north. the national weather service says it's too soon to determine

7:34 am
difficulties with installing it, the deadline was pushed back. investigators will try to determine if positive train control could have prevented the speeding new jersey transit train from smashing into the hoboken station. >> that is absolutely one area that we always look into for every rail accident. as you know, the ntsb has been recommending positive train control for 40 years. >> reporter: they remain on gps satellites and radio towers ground sensors. if it detects a train is going too fast or operating unsafely, on-board computers will kick in to slow it or stop it. in january, amtrak showed us how the technology works using this simulator. when it's beeping, you take over. >> if you don't brake action it will take over control of the train. >> reporter: nationwide it is

7:36 am
has set aside to implement ptc. it's not expected to be in use at least 2018. gayle? >> maybe they will rethink that one. thank you, kris. the associated press investigates find confidential police databases have been used by some police officers to obtain information that has nothing to do with daily police work. the findings show some police run searches on romantic partners and business associates and journalists and family members. don dahler is here with the details. >> reporter: good morning. the databases give police instant access to a wide range of information, including a addresses, phonenumbers, criminal histories. and driving records, which is all critical information when used appropriately. but as the investigation uncovered, there are sometimes illegitimate searches that remain unchecked. after being harassed for nearly a year, 30-year-old alexus decany said she was violently attacked by her ex-boyfriend, a former sergeant with the akron, ohio, police, named eric paul.
7:37 am
unconscious. he made known in writing, via text message and social media that he was coming to kill me. >> reporter: using confidential police databases, she says paul had access to private information that made the stalking even more relentless. >> i tried changing my number several times. and he would just get this other app on his phone where he could call me from his phone, but it would come up different numbers. i would try to go hide and stay at friends' houses or my mom's and he would find me. four-year probationary sentence after pleading guilty to charges that was the unlawful use of a law enforcement database. a crime that can be difficult to track. >> it is often difficult to distinguish a questionable search from the millions of legitimate searches that law enforcement officers do every day. >> reporter: an investigation by the associated press found that between 2013 and 2015, law enforcement officers and employees were fired, suspended,
7:38 am
for the misuse of police databases. they received lesser punishments over 250 times. chuck gallop is a former police officer who was disciplined for database misuse. he says officers were encouraged to practice searching on innocent subjects. >> i have spoken to officers who went through that training at the time and they were told pull out your high school yearbook and start running people and get it's new in this and use it. >> reporter: no single agency monitors the use of databases but in the case of alexus decany, it's often when a crime has been committed that such incidents are revealed. >> there needs to be some sort of checks and balances, some sort of way to hold these officers that have complete discretion accountable for this information they have at their fingertips. >> reporter: because eric paul accepted a plea deal, he could be released before his four-year sentence is up. as for alexus, she started a go fund me page to pay for relocation should her former

7:45 am
>> reporter: this scenery inspired the floating mountains in the blockbuster "avatar." the bridge could have been an inspiration for hitchcock's vertigo. for protect the glass booties are required and high heels are banned and tickets are limited. after opening in august, the bridge closed for a month because of overcapacity. last year, a different glass walkway in china shut after a panel shattered. >> once you get used to it, it's not that scary. >> reportehe manager joe chen says they are not taking any chances. >> there are three layers of the glass panels and each layer can actually withstand more than 40 tons. >> reporter: to prove it, this summer, officials had visitors try to smash the glass with a sledge hammer and ride a car over it just to "drive" home the point. but chen says the bridge is more than just a tourists attraction. it symbolizes an ascending

8:03 am
and just underneath that, that's where the train engines are. that's where the investigators will be focusing. couple of concerns they have, one is the structural integrity of the building, there was some water damage after the crash yesterday. have to be very careful moving in and around there. that's why the terminal is still empty right now. investigators also need that roof damage, they need to actually have that roof removed before they can get to parts of the train that they need to look at. there is a thought that the train was moving miles per hour, maybe even more as it moved in here. trains of course not to be -- shouldn't be going any faster than 10 miles an hour. next seven to ten days investigators will be here trying to figure it all out. anthony? >> jim. jim axelrod, thanks. donald trump walaunched a twitter attack against alicia machado. in one tweet, he urged his followers to look into a sex tape and wrote, quote, did
