mates remember the troubled star today, monday, july 15th, 2013. from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. good morning everyone. welcome to "today" on a monday morning. i'm savannah guthrie. >> i'm willie geist with tamron hall. look who is here? al roker in all his glory. >> we'll be stripping this down as we go along. >> there you go. enjoy your cheerios. >> a sticky day. >> great to have you back. >> thank you. >> meanwhile, the demonstrations over the george zimmerman verdict have been mainly peaceful but some groups did throw rocks and batteries at police in los angeles overnight. >> for the latest, we want to get right to kerry sanders who has been covering the trial in
7:02 am
sanford, florida. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. the trial is over, the not guilty verdict is in and the protests are growing. the city of sanford is preparing for what could be a massive protest this week. late into the night in several major cities across the country, protestors poured into the streets demanding justice for trayvon martin. >> something is wrong with our society and our world in general when these type things are able to happen. >> fuelled by social media, the demonstrators were mostly peaceful but many are angry. >> this whole system wants you to feel like trayvon was a criminal. this whole system is wrong. >> in new york, a mass of demonstrators virtually shut down times square block streets and bringing traffic to a stand still. in los angeles, police called a city wide technical alert as about 200 protestors closed a portion of the 10 freeway for about 25 minutes. >> we the jury find george
7:03 am
zimmerman not guilty. >> reporter: the protest started growing after zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder in the killing of 17-year-old trayvon martin. even as zimmerman walked out of the courtroom a free man on saturday night there were calls for more legal action against him. an naacp online petition calling for eric holder to intervene in the case got 1 half million signatures before the site crashed. the justice department said it already has an open investigation. >> you want to see where the investigation leads. >> reporter: while some predicted zimmerman would soon safe civil suits, his defense team pushed back. >> we'll see how many civil lawsuits spawn from this fiasco. >> reporter: near miami where trayvon martin lived members of his family attended church on sunday. >> we're very concerned and very hurt and very disappointed at this point. but we know in the end god will prevail and he will -- justice will be served. >> reporter: martin's parents
7:04 am
were not at the service but his father tweeted god blessed me and sybrina with tray and he's proud of the fight we along with all of you put up for him. george zimmerman's family responded on twitter saying our whole family is relieved. zimmerman attorney, don west. >> i'm thrilled that this jury kept this tragedy from becoming a travesty. >> reporter: the prosecution team said they accepted the jury's verdict but. >> am i disappointed? yes. i thought he was guilty. >> president obama issued a statement calling for a calm reflection saying the death of trayvon martin was a tragedy. not just for his family or for any one community but for america. >> reporter: under florida law george zimmerman can get back the pistol he used to kill
7:05 am
17-year-old trayvon martin. his brother says he sees no reason why george zimmerman would not carry that concealed weapon again. kerry sanders, thank you. lisa bloom is today's legal analyst and reverend al sharpton. good morning. >> good morning. >> i know you did not like this verdict. were you surprised by it? >> i thought all along it was 50/50. you have to remember. we had to fight and demonstrate to even get a trial. people forget that the sanford police had said there was no probable cause. there will be no arrest. that's when the family called to action. we didn't have a lot of confidence in the area. we were hopeful, particularly when they had the option of going to manslaughter. at that time we also said let's open up a request to the federal government. so asking the justice department to come in is not new. the family and attorney crump and i met with the u.s. attorney down there over a year ago and
7:06 am
made that request and the investigation was open and was suspended during this trial. >> are you optimistic that the federal government will pursue charges in connection with this case. >> trayvon martin had the civil right to go home and in 100 cities this saturday there will be demonstrations in front of federal buildings led by ministers pressing the federal government to protect our right. at one level you dealt with the murder charges but now you have to deal with the civil rights violations. he had the right to go home and george zimmerman is not a policeman and had no authority to interfere at all. >> this poses a legal question. one, how likely do you think sit the department of justice pursues charges across this line and is it a more difficult prosecution in the sense of the proof you have to have in a federal case. >> i reviewed the department of justice policy. it's lengthy but it boils down to what elements of the federal crime would be different from the element of the state crime where he has been acquitted.
7:07 am
once he is acquitted, he can't be prosecuted again for the same crime. so the question is whether the federal charges would be significantly different. >> and they would have to, we assume, show there was racial animos. >> what is fascinating about that, in the state trial the prosecutors said repeatedly this is not about race. the protests were about race but in the courtroom it was not about race. >> let me bring the reverend in on that. do you think the prosecutors missed an opportunity that they didn't make the case about racial profiling? >> they did it but it sets up a federal case because you can't say it's been tried because it wasn't tried. there is no double jeopardy because they specifically said this is not about race which opens the door for the federal government to now investigate what he meant when zimmerman said they always get away with this. who is they and get away with what when there was no crime being committed. >> let me ask you point blank. she has been critical of the prosecution team.
7:08 am
do you think the prosecution mishandled this case? did they do a good job of putting on this case? >> i think they could have done a lot more. lisa is a lawyer and can say mishandled. i can say they were not aggressive in many areas they should have been where i think the federal government can do which is why we'll be in the federal buildings this saturday. >> and the rodney king, acquitted on the state level and successfully prosecuted on the federal level. >> you have been in touch with the family, and do you think they will file a civil suit against the george zimmerman family? >> they will keep their options open. they'll keep their options open. i can tell you this is long from being over and we're going to be with them every step of the way because this puts every child at risk. any child can be interfered with going home for committing no crime. that's the bottom line here that must be answered. >> reverend, lisa bloom, thank you for being here. appreciate it. now here's willie. thank you. al his has eye on that oppressive heat wave stretching from the midwest to the northeast this morning. he's outside in the thick of it.
7:09 am
good morning. >> it is very close willie. here's the culprit. huge area of high pressure. this dome of high pressure has a clockwise flow of air. it's basically a heat bump and it's keeping the jet stream way up to the north and as it does it's going to be pumping in that warm, humid air. we have excessive heat warnings in jersey and parts of pennsylvania. we have heat advisories and excessive heat watches up into new england. 50 million people effected by this. hazey, hot and humid. it's not so much the temperature, that's hot enough, but it's the feels like temperature. 102 in richmond. over 105 in washington d.c. cleveland 100. 100 in boston. new york city will feel like 101 and these temperatures and heat indexes will continue right into friday. dangerous conditions. make sure you stay hydrated. drink plenty of fluids. make sure you wear light colored clothing and please check on your elderly neighbors because they are very susceptible to this kind of weather, savannah.
7:10 am

7:11 am
ho lee [ bleep ]. >> they seemed to be the victims of a hoax using racial stereotypes aimed at the pilots but how did it happen? ktvu said it confirmed the names with the ntsb. they tell nbc news a summer college intern in washington answered the phone and acted outside the scope of his authority when he confirmed the names of the flight crew on the aircraft. the ntsb has apologized. >> we are sorry. >> and ktvu admitted to several mistakes. >> first of all, we never read the names out loud phonetically sounding them out and then during our phone call to the ntsb where they confirmed the spelling, we never asked them to give us their position within the agency. >> it overshadowed two other tragic developments. the death of a third victim from the crash, a child that died on friday and confirmation that another child was run over by a responding fire engine as her
7:12 am
body lay under the foam already sprayed on the burning plane. the coroner has not yet said if that contributed to her death. >> we're told there is deep public anger and resentment in korea over the matter with the fake pilot names. the ntsb has a policy of never releasing name which is makes this matter all the more troubling. the agency will be taking appropriate action today to make sure this doesn't happen again. >> what a story. tom costello in washington. thank you. does edward snowden have more top secret information he is holding on to. tamron is in for natalie with details. >> that's the hot question this morning. the former nsa contractor has what he calls sensitive blueprints detailing how the nsa operates. glenn greenwald claims snowden has thousands of documents that would make it possible for someone to evade or even copy the nsa. greenwald says snowden has enough information to cause
7:13 am

"glee" fans are mourning the death of actor cory monteith saturday morning. staff found his body in a vancouver hotel room saturday morning after he missed his check out time. an autopsy is expected today to determine the cause of death. he was just 31 years old. >> a man was arrested thursday near the boston home of secretary of state john kerry. the man was allegedly parked in a no parking zone taking photographs of kerry's home. he was arrested for having an open container of alcohol but a kerry spokesperson says a pellet gun was also found in that vehicle. secretary kerry was not at home at the time. a different kind of showdown this week at the nation's capitol. senate democratic leader harry reid is driving toward new rules that would help president obama win confirmation for his nominees. under the proposal nominees would win approval with a simple majority instead of the 60 vote threshold that has led to time

7:35 am
play. there were no weapons on the scene and they can tell us that, you know, they're not going to speculate at this point on the cause of death but they're not ruling out suicide for the time being but obviously given monteith's past struggles with drugs, we're sort of looking toward that toxicology report to tell us what happened. >> kristen, you mentioned he has been struggling with drugs since his earliest teen years, something like 13 years old. went into rehab for awhile and back into rehab earlier this year. what do we know about the way he was struggling recently with his addiction. >> the "glee" community is shocked by this death on so many levels but primarily because he seemed to be doing very well. he had an intervention in marchand decided to go to rehab for a month-long stint and he seemed like everything was on the up and up. saw him vacationing. he seemed happy. stepped out to a charity event and talked about how happy he was to be coming back to the show. he was getting his life

love with him on screen and behind the scenes is going to be particularly difficult and that's something they're going to have to consider when they talk about when they're going back into production. they're going to have to redo the scripts because he was heavily featured in the first few episodes and try to figure out what's the appropriate time to return to work. it was supposed to be in a couple of weeks. that's probably not going to happen. >> difficult time for the "glee" family. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> sad to see such a talented guy. we'll switch gears now and get a check of the weather from mr. roker. >> temperatures will be a big factor across much of the country. we're looking at at least 50 million people effected by the heat wave, but that also extends all the way down into the central gulf coast for today. on into tomorrow we don't see much relief in the northeast. in the southwest temperatures in the hundreds as well. as we make our way to wednesday, look at the wide expanse of the temperatures in the mid to upper 90s and we go all the way into friday with the temperatures in the 90s and near 100 degrees from the midwest into the northeast. that's what's going on around

him to assume an active role as the child's father. she read from a letter patrick sent her. >> i am not ready to be a father. i want you to know that if you want to use my sperm you have my blessing. it just has to be between you and i. >> patrick sees and remembers it differently. even though the couple's relationship had cooled he made it clear he did want to be the father. he said he selected intended parent on his donor form and other documents suggest his involvement as a parent in key aspect of the child's up bringing like tuition payments for day care. and the boy addresses patrick repeatedly when he performed on broadway. he would be suing for custody. he lost. but now california state senator jerry hill introduced a bill that would change that. >> this clarification is for very small group of individuals who didn't ever waive their rights, and who to the contrary from day one said i intend to be a parent. >> reporter: the california branch of now supports danielle.
7:45 am
>> the change in the proposed law is that at any time a known sperm donor irregardless of the consents signed before conception can claim parentage. >> reporter: if the new law passes, it could allow patrick whose film credits include "the lost boys" and "speed 2" can try to prove he is a man whose sperm produced the child, acted as his father from the beginning and that he's earned the right to be called a parent. nbc news, los angeles. >> and danielle joins us now. good morning to both of you ladies. >> good morning. first of all let's catch up with the story here. you say that you intended and that jason patrick only intended for him to be a sperm donor but where it gets complicated is it sounds like there's some relationship between your son gus and jason patrick. >> during the course of my dating relationship with jason he was exposed to gus. gus is my world.
7:46 am
anyone in my world would have contact with gus. >> you guys got back together after the sperm donorship and it was through that that he had access to your child. >> when gus was about 13 months old. we had contact before that, though. >> let me set the stage a little the facts, the law, common sense are on danielle's side on this case. the law in california could not be clearer. he had an opportunity prior to the conception of this child to say i want to be the dad. he said no. he not only said no, he said i want to keep it a secret and right before the child is born, maybe four or five days before the child is born he said it again in writing. he doesn't want to be the dad. he then comes in after the fact, after the fact and by intimidation, dad by intimidation he wants now to claim parenthood. we're not saying he doesn't have a right to be part of this child's life. at danielle's okay. danielle is the mom.
7:47 am
the law recognizes her as the mom. she bore this child and all we're saying to jason is wait a minute. >> let me let her get in here a little bit because he says at the fertility clinic he signed a paper next to his name that said intended parent. >> those were consent forms and that was the designation on the signature. >> on a preschool application he was listed as the father. money that he owed me to help pay for gus's tuition. and rather than pay me directly he decided to pay the school and anyone that paid the school had to sign that application. >> the fact of the matter is you won in the first court. you won and you are the parent of this child, jason patrick is not. but let me be devil's advocate. if he wants to have a relationship with his son, what's wrong with that? >> it's not about relationship or contact with gus. it's about rights. me preserving my right to be a
7:48 am
sole legal parent and not having to share that with with someone that never intended to and never raised gus. even when we were dating he never did anything to raise gus. he never changed a single diaper. was never with gus unsupervised for more than half an hour here or there. >> savannah, the other thing is a court has found that jason is not a truth teller. and that the law, which in our judgment is extremely clear, isn't in his favor. the people that want to change the law, i think everybody should examine a law like this but it should be looked at quitely and with contemplation and a whole. >> the state legislature is looking into changing the law. we'll continue to follow that. thank you for being here. we appreciate you sharing your story. >> and we'll talk to jason patrick tomorrow on today. coming up, we'll switch gear ace bit. al is here and he's going to help us welcome back that all american treat, the twinkie. but first, these messages.

seminole county, florida, state of florida versus george zimmerman, verdict, we the jury find george zimmerman, not guilty. >> george zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting death of trayvon martin reignited the debate about what it means to be black in the united states. legal analyst lisa bloom, the cohost of nbc's the cycle and msnbc's political analyst are here with a look at the verdict's impact on race relations in our society. good to see you guys. >> good morning. >> let's start with you. you say the prosecutions case, the jurors never really got a chance to hear what happened? >> well, they did hear the facts of the case and all of the witnesses that heard something or saw something were put on but as i said before the verdict when both sides appeared to be arguing reasonable doubt a defense verdict was fairly predictable and that's what happened here. >> both of you, your gut reactions when you heard this verdict? were you expecting it? how did you feel after you did? >> i'm not shocked.
9:15 am
a new an acquittal was possible because she told me the prosecution had not made a theory of the case but we waited 45 days for an arrest. we have an almost all white jury. we almost never get justice in that situation especially in the south but i was still numbed because i'm taken back to emmitt teal and all of these situations where black white means a little bit less than white life in america. >> no doubt. i have two sons and my son texted me and said how do i protect my two black boys who are very young? so for us it's a reminder, it's a kind of deja vu over again and it's a negative appraisal because when we have such overwhelming evidence that black teens are subjected to racial profiling and not in this case with a policeman but an ordinary average citizen we're subjected to somebody that gets mad gets a gun, murders us and we can't
9:16 am
stand our ground to defend ourselves and as a result of that all black men feel vulnerable. women for their husbands. mothers and fathers for their children and we feel vulnerable for each other. it's a horrible predicament. >> did the prosecution make a major mistake in the way they went and maybe not focussing on what this could have meant? >> i think they had a lot of missteps in the case. they didn't put forward a theory of what happened. both sides were focussing on the defense theory that in the final moments george zimmerman was down on his back and trayvon martin was on top assaulting him. as i said throughout this trial, if that's the only imagine the jury has going into deliberations they're going to say george zimmerman had a right to defend himself but there were multiple witnesses that had a different scenario that said zimmerman was on top or both men were upright and running. the prosecution essentially asked a lot of questions and told the jury you look at the evidence. you decide it. that is completely unusual in the murder case where the prosecution generally connects
9:17 am
the dots and connects the facts to the charges. that didn't happen here. >> it seems to me we're good in this country in talking about how we should have a conversation but not as good at actually having the conversation. what would you like that conversation in this case now to sound like? what should we be talking about as a country. >> it's hard to even assess that because we're having two entirely different conversations from the beginning. this broke down as this sort of left, right dichotomy, the left looking at it one way and the right and even though there's a dead person involved in this that's not pliticily involved. we have this stand your ground laws in this gun culture that allows to be vigilantes. you're overconvicted and oversentenced. as black people there's no chance to have -- it's not just a conversation. there's an institutional system

and george zimmerman was acquitted in that case. and a lot of people it raised a lot of emotions. and i think because it fell on a saturday night at 10:00 it was probably one of those that the eyes of the nation weren't all focused because people on weekends tend to do what they are doing in their lives. >> they aren't sitting by the television waiting for the most part. >> lots been talked about. we don't want to talk it to death. but one of the things interesting were the celebs who were tweeting kind of when they were angry -- >> the minute they heard the verdict. >> and i don't think -- sometimes celebs don't realize when they tweet something, they aren't just voicing their own opinion, which is fine, but they have 1.8 million followers who could be on the verge of being inflamed. who knows. >> they could incite violence by whatever they say. >> one of the tweets. new york giants victor cruz who is a great guy, by the way. i've seen at many events and a kind-hearted guy tweeted thoroughly confused. zimmerman doesn't last a year
10:02 am
before the hood catches up to him. he ended up apologizing, deleting and sending five more tweets apologize. roddy white said all them jurors should go home tonight and kill themselves for letting a grown man get away with killing a kid. he later apologized for that. richard dreyfuss said it's 2013 and an american jury just acquitted a man who admitted to stalking and killing an unarmed child. anyway. >> and it goes on. >> but if you listen to trayvon's own parents, which is really -- >> i am so impressed with them. they're unbelievablunbelievable. >> amazing. >> tracy martin tweeted even though i'm broken hearted, my faith is unshattered. i will always love my baby. the brother of george zimmerman also tweeted our whole family is -- i don't have the rest of that. >> our whole family is relieved. today i'm proud to be an american. god bless america. thank you for your prayers. of course it depends on which side you were on. but the thing is, we can never know what that jury was going
10:03 am
through. you know, these are six women, which -- florida is an unusual state in many ways. six people and people get mad at a jury but the truth is juries are chosen by both sets of attorneys. when they do the selection. so you can't, after the fact, be upset about it because everybody -- both sides agreed these were the six people they were going to have on the jury. >> most were saying the prosecution didn't do a good job proving its case and the two charges they had against george zimmerman, they didn't have the -- they didn't have the impact to convict him on either of those two charges. most people were saying from what the jury saw and heard -- >> from the evidence that was allowed in, they made what most professionals, it seems to me, said that's the only one they actually could because of the law which is the stand your ground law in florida. >> i think there's a legal thing and then an emotional and moral thing. you think, if i were driving a car down the street, fell asleep and hit someone accidentally and killed them, i would be charged
10:04 am
with something involuntary. something. like something happened. and i think when common sense comes in people go, wait. that wasn't nothing. something happened there. but what's the something? >> an innate sense we ul want justice but we can't know what actually went on that night between those two people. we just can't know. and i think the last gentleman who testified on the forensic evidence was, you know, after that it was all over, i think. >> yeah, i think so. >> you know how i felt about this from the beginning. i thought that many in the media made it out to be immediately racial. and there are, what, 300 murders like that every -- and why this particular one? and to me it's almost like when we have an election. and the person you wanted to win doesn't win, that's our system. and we have to respect it. and we have to abide by the rules. and we can't rule by mob in our country no matter what because you'll be on the other side of it sometimes. >> let's move on.
10:05 am
>> let's talk about -- >> well, they are actually crookies. >> oh, crookies. we have the cronuts. >> it's so passe. >> we have some breaking news. i don't know if anyone has even seen this crookie. it's its first outing. it's from a bakery in toronto. >> it came over the -- >> over across the border. >> it came across the border thanks to amanda. >> amanda is one of our producers. they said they could not ship this in time. amanda on vacation nearby said i will stop by and get them. so she smuggled them across the border. >> it was excellent. >> it's called -- >> amanda, you are looking good. >> so it's a combination of a croissant and an oreo cookie in it. let's taste it.
10:06 am
>> i just got the croissant part. you are the sweet girl. you go. $3 each. >> wait. is that canadian or american? >> canadian. $3 canadian. >> how is it? light? >> yeah. i could use a few more oreos in there. >> of course you could. why don't you take your own oreo and stuff it in there. >> we should point out, we were just talking about the zimmerman trial. zimmerman had a lot of supporters also online. and in -- on twitter and stuff. so it wasn't all just one sided. okay. and it's time for the royal baby watch. and you know who was at her post? >> natalie. >> natalie morales. >> the first to arrive outside royal -- the st. mary's hospital in paddington. we've got a little delay. >> right. this is where she's expected to deliver. hi, guys. yeah, so any minute now, i'm waiting, as is everybody else. the media here, they've all staked out their territory.
10:07 am
a couple of weeks ago. our nbc crew, they got here late june. and carved out a perfect little path right here for us. so tells you how much is invested in capturing the first photos and capturing that moment when william and kate will expectedly walk the little baby out and display the baby to the world. already causing such buzz. >> natalie, you have had two children -- >> they will want to come out and display the baby. yes. >> at some point. you've had two babies. you know that baby arrives when god says it's time. you know? >> absolutely. the storks i thought, too, yeah, exactly. >> but, i mean -- >> kate's mom did leave a little indicator. didn't she say something about the baby is going to be a leo? what's that story? >> well, here's the interesting point is that it's emerged in the press that people are now thinking, well, this so-called rumored due date of this past weekend saturday, specifically the 13th, may actually be august
10:08 am
23rd now, which would put us into next week because apparently carol middleton dropped that the baby is going to be a leo. so now everybody is sort of like, well, maybe this wasn't the due date, especially because prince william was seen along with harry playing polo. >> 100 miles away. why would he go 150 miles -- 100 miles away from here and play polo if he knew the baby was going to come at any moment, even though he is a helicopter pilot and he could get a helicopter and get here as quickly as he could to be by her bedside. kate was also spending the weekend with her own family in bucklebury. so a lot of question as to, they know a lot more than we do certainly when it comes to -- >> i hope you packed a lot of spanx because you may be there a while. >> i may be here a while. i'm doing a lot of shopping. i figured the longer this goes on we can come up with a royal baby drinking game. so every time i say royal baby and there's still no royal baby, we have to -- >> we have our sippie cups.
10:09 am
we have mama's sippy cups. wine in a sippy cup. natalie, we're saving one for you. >> love you, natalie. that is one of our favorite things. favorite things, this is a sippy cup. there's a woman named -- well, we'll call her square peg. she works in rehoboth. she sent you and me both little gift baskets. and one of them that wound up in this was a sippy cup which has a nice glass of wine and you can drink out of it. anyway, square peg accessories.com. that's the website. >> now my favorite is something called -- they were heroes. it's the granite mountain hot shots. these are the 19 brave unbelievable firefighters who lost their lives on june 30th while fighting the yarnell hill wildfire. these are $20 each. and $15 of that goes to the hot shots and the families. can you imagine? the families they left behind.
