7:06 am
commissioner bratton and john miller returned to studio 57 to talk about that and boston security preparations. that's coming up in our program. the man accused of killing three people in the kansas city suburb could be charged with hate crimes. miller has a long record of racist. he had never been linked to violence until the shootings. dean reynolds is in kansas. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the suspected shooter in this case faces prosecution under hate crimes because even though none of his victims in this case was jewish, hate crimes are all about intent. when you combine the suspect's record of antisubmit statements with the killings here's, authorities say the intent was clear. >> we have unquestionably determined through work of local and federal law enforcement
7:07 am
agent says this was a hate crime. >> reporter: police chose not to elaborate about what exactly the 73-year-old suspect said after his arrest sunday, frazier glenn miller hasn't been quiet about his views over the years. a 1987 u.s. marshals wanted poster described miller as a leader of a right wing extremist group. he was caught later that we're in a mobile home packed with weapons and explosives. >> arsenal of weapons big enough to supply a small army. >> miller served time. fbi officials say he was still on their radar. >> we were aware of his existence, aware he was arrested, aware he was affiliated with certain hate groups. >> one of sunday's victims, 53-year-old had been visiting her mother at a jewish retirement home. she and the two others killed
7:08 am
were christian. >> i knew as soon as i came upon my dad he was heaven. >> she discovered her father shot in the parking lot before police arrived. then she saw her son gravely wounded. >> i could tell he seemed out of it. i couldn't even tell if i had tried to speak to him if he could have spoken. it was quick and blurry. >> reporter: both her father and son died. a family doctor had been taking his 14-year-old grandson to an audition for a singing competition. >> be sure and hug you're kids and tell them you love them. you never know. he had been practicing you're going to miss me when i'm gone. you're going to miss me when i'm gone. >> reporter: now instead of celebrating easter, families will be holding funerals for their loved ones on good friday. >> oh my goodness.
7:09 am
thank you. a massive cold front to the northeast and causing weather problems for millions this morning. strong winds mocked over more than a dozen house trailers last night along the mississippi gulf coast. there are reports of two injuries. central michigan is dealing with serious flooding this morning. tens of thousands of homes have no power. chicago got a snowy reminder last night of this year's rough winter weather. meagan of our chicago station wbbm is tracking this storm front as it moves east. >> good morning and good morning to viewers in the west. east coast under the threat of severe weather from florida to the peninsula with potential for strong winds. the storm system pushes eastward. there's snow on the northern extent that could dump as much as two inches from midwest to east coast. in the west, there's another
7:10 am
storm system coming on shore for pacific northwest bringing rain and mountain snow. california will remain dry. 71 in los angeles for the high today. 86 degrees in las vegas. phoenix 91 degrees. looks like seattle and portland both in the upper 50s. >> megan, thanks. president barack obama is asking russian president vladimir putin to tell supporters in ukraine to back off. white house officials say the two leaders discussed the crisis on the phone yesterday. president barack obama warned putin moscow would pay a price for separatist activity in ukraine. earlier the a russian fighter yet repeatedly flew by the oust navy destroyer in the black sea. we are in one of the cities where pro russian forces control government buildings. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. an antiterrorist operation against ukraine separatist is underway. some have surrendered according
7:11 am
to the country's government. so far we haven't seen any evidence of that operation. as ukraine is on the brink of civil war, any use of force carries very high risks. pro russian protestors now occupy the town's police headquarters and barricaded themselves inside. ukraine's antigovernment militants ignored an ultimatum from the country's leader to lay down their weapons and leave the state buildings they've taken over. inside the police station we found the officers who used to work here and who have now switched sides to join the protestors. they're still wearing their uniforms but now they also wear the orange ribbon that shows loyalty to a separate russian speaking eastern ukraine. their commander is in the central government was expecting trouble here and confiscated their weapons several days ago.
7:12 am
>> so you don't have any guns? you don't have any weapons now? >> yes. >> nothing? >> nothing. >> ukraine's leaders know if they use force to remove the protestors that could be a pretext for a russian military intervention. they fear a rerun of what happened in crimea last month when thousands of russian soldiers in unmarked uniforms moved in and an ex ed the region. nato says satellite pictures show tens of thousands of russian troops at the ukraine border. this protest leader denied russian involvement. these are all local people, he told us. what we did here was spontaneous. >> reporter: that may be true in the this area, many seizures of government buildings appeared well coordinated. moscow continues to deny that.
7:13 am
norah? holly, thank you. now to the search for flight 370. officials hope to deploy the u.s. navy robotic submarine again today searching the seabed of the indian ocean. we are in beijing to see why the first trip was cut short. seth, good morning. >> the bluefin-21 was sent down to create a 3d picture of the ocean floor beneath the ship listening for those pings. we know it went down and was expected to be down 16 hours mapping the ocean floor. after just about six hours, it reached its maximum depth limit of 15,000 feet. that triggered a safety switch that then automatically returned the submersible to the surface. at that point, investigators went through the six hours of data that were collected and determined there was nothing significant there. but we know from the u.s. navy, there was no damage to the sub.
7:14 am
the u.s. navy indeed plans to redeploy it. meanwhile, up to 11 planes and 11 ships took part in the search on the surface for the debris. we know from investigators that the chances of finding floating debris have diminished. the chief prosecutor finished the cross-examination of oscar pistorius in his murder trial. our correspondent is in pretoria south africa. pistorius was grilled about the moment he learned his girlfriend was dead. >> reporter: good morning. chief prosecutor nel talked about the moments pistorius found his girlfriend slumped in the bathroom. nel could not understand why pistorius screaming earlier was suddenly quiet. >> you shot four shots through that door knowing you're standing behind the door.
7:15 am
>> that's incorrect my lady. >> that you knew that she was talking to you. >> that's incorrect my lady. >> she was locked into the bathroom and you armed yourself with a sole purpose of shooting and killing her. >> nel spelled out the prosecution case telling the court pistorius shot his girlfriend after they had an argument. >> now you see her. now it's the opportunity for you to scream reeva, reeva, are you fine? why would you not scream then? >> i don't understand that question. >> you've now seen she's in there. the first time you know she's in the toilet am i right? >> that's correct. >> why did you not scream then? >> i don't know what the purpose would be of screaming. i was overcome with sadness and crying. >> after five days of salvaging, the end of the cross-examination, pistorius
7:16 am
advocate barry roux redirected questions to him asking him to read a valentine's card in which reeva steenkamp wrote, today is a good day to tell you i love you. she never got to give him the card. that's the day oscar pistorius killed her. >> thank you. a new report on beef prices expected to confirm what shoppers know. the price of red meat is skyrocketing. >> the pound of choice beef reached $5.20 in february, the highest in 27 years. contributor and analyst is with us from chicago. good morning. good morning charlie. >> why is it this expensive? >> supply is down because of the weather. a drought in the western states as well as this terrible winter have literally killed tens of thousands of cows. on the demand side, the demand is coming from overseas. particularly china, brazil, mexico, these emerging markets
7:17 am
where there's a direct correlation between wealth creation and better diets. people want more protein. that is here to stay. middle class are growing so quickly. we'll see high beef prices a very long time. >> in fact the hunger for american meat products in china is driving up the price of a lot of a em titems, right? >> that's right. with pork and a lot of things. you see milk and a lot of things. >> what's the impact on americans? >> well, one of the things we've seen in america is that there's the old saying chickens have come home to roost. that's actually true. we've switched to chicken. look at per capita consumption, chicken has jumped ahead of beef in america. that's a first. >> thank you. time to show you this morning's headlines. the detroit prepress says two

7:32 am
preparing for this? >> i think they're in great shape for this event both for the sports event and the security around it. they have spent an exhaustive year looking at every aspect of what went wrong and what went right last year. they're as prepared as any city could be for this event. >> let's talk about when went wrong. the inspector general report took fbi to task that they didn't interview the suspect's wife, go to the mass. watch groups didn't have information about his birth date and different spellings of his name. do you think that criticism is warranted? what lessons can be learned from that? >> fbi office in boston did 775 of those threat assessments that year. this is part of it. the rules they operate under, largely self imposed, stricter than the attorney general guidelines say if they don't find evidence of a crime or
7:33 am
supporting that threat of 90 day, they have to close that case. that's based on the theory you can't investigate someone forever based on a tip. the review the fbi did of that investigation said they ran every database, every cross check, checked with all of the sources that they had. then they went furtherer and did interviews with parents at home and so on. did they interview everybody they would like to in 20/20 hindsight, no. >> but the wife -- does that surprise you they didn't interview the wife? >> you can find fault in any case. looking at that today, certainly somebody you could have wanted to talk top. at the time i think they went as far as they could with what they had. >> one of the connections was the failure to connect the dots. what was interesting in this inspector general report, some of what the fbi found they did not share with local law
7:34 am
enforcement in boston. given now you head of nypd, how close is that connection with the fbi? >> extraordinarily close and getting closer all the time. the movement we have at police headquarters is the highest level of security you can get for any intelligence move. commissioner miller just recently expanded its activity. we like this with our colleagues at federal government. >> was there enough coordination between government agencies? >> i think that's one of the aspects of coming out of the bombing last year that some of this sharing that should have been done was not done. out of every negative you try to get a positive. one of the positives coming out of boston is we understand clearly the need to share,
7:35 am
share, share again. >> what do we make of what russians didn't do? >> what russians didn't do was sent a fairly vague report saying they were suspicious of tamerlan tsarnaev. they were written back three times saying do you have anymore to go on before they closed out their investigation? never got any further. the russians then sent an equally vague report to the cia asking them to investigate the same thing. >> you know, we've spoken -- >> i have to add, i have to suggest that russian intelligence had a lot more on tamerlan tsarnaev than they probably shared. what they were likely trying to do was protect their sources and methods. >> we've spoken from sur vooviv from the boston marathon bombings. they want to focus on the future
7:36 am
and not talk about the past. the questions, is boston safe today and for the marathon next week? >> of course. i'll be there myself. last year was one of the few years i missed the boston marathon. the police commissioner there, as a police officer i was there. >> you still have the boston accent is. >> it's like the red sox. marathon is part of the fever. it will be extraordinarily safe. >> is new york assisting? >> i'm sorry? >> is new york assisting with security in boston? >> we have some resources up there. we've been interacting over the last year. they've come to look at what we're doing. boston is doing an extraordinary job reaching out to see what everybody else is going to do for this weekend. >> may i turn to a light note. >> how is oir former correspondent doing as your deputy? >> so far so good. >> it's okay.

the people of boston will pause today to remember the marathon bombings one year ago. the attack killed three people and injured more than 260. this morning dozens of survivors are on page one of the "boston globe." the headline "one year, one city." >> a wreath was laid this morning at the spot where the bombs went off beginning one hour from now a tribute will ho honor victims and celebrate boston's recovery a. flag will be raised at the marathon finish line and a moment of silence will will be held at the time of the bombings that was 11:49 a.m. pacific time. cbs news will carry that ceremony live in a special report that will be anchored by scott pelley. and in a moment we'll ask former boston police commissioner ed davis what the city is doing to prevent another similar attack. first, four other people it at the scene remember the first moments of chaos. >> i was probably about 50 yards away from the finish line. i don't know, maybe 20 seconds away from actually finishing. and that's when i heard the
8:03 am
first explosion. >> i saw a runner with an orange singlet, an older man, and i saw him stagger and go down. my instinctive reaction was to go to him to help him because i thought he might have been hit by the flying glass. >> it to this day i don't even remember the gentleman on the floor. you start remembering stuff about people like, oh, you know, they say they're worried about you and you're trying to communicate with them, but it's just hard. >> i just thought it was a prank, are some kid maybe fireworks. i kept running. everyone around me kept running. i was maybe 50 yards from the finish line. i just wanted to fin ib the race. i was so close. i just wanted to finish. >> i remember turning in the direction of it and seeing smoke and people screaming and running, but i didn't even have a chance to react because before i could even say anything i heard the second bomb.
8:04 am
>> ed davis was boston's police commissioner a year ago. he is now a security consultant. he teaches at harvard university and is with us from boston. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> of all the things that you experienced, what one memory is deepest in your soul? >> i think it was the arrival on the scene at the forum restaurant and seeing the bodies of lind zi gzi lu and richard m. i realized it was terrorism at that moment and i also realized the loss that we were facing. >> so what has happened since then to make sure that you don't have to face that kind of circumstance again? >> well, bill evans, the new commissioner, and the boston police department have spearheaded an effort to increase security here dramatically. this is a much harder target to hit than it was a year ago. there will be three times as
8:05 am
many police personnel, undercover people in the crowds, bomb dogs, cameras. they're limiting access to anyone carrying anything heavy. this is going to be a very tight security sken cenario today. >> i'm thinking it's going to be one of the safest places to be in boston for the next few weeks really. but i love this phrase with boston strong. it is not just a catchy phrase, commissioner. it really speaks to the people of boston, who they are, how they feel about each other, how they feel about the city. at harvard university you asked for researchers to look into a course and you called it why was boston strong? what did you learn? why did you want to do that and what did you learn? >> that study was completed by dutch lennon and his partners at the kennedy school. they looked at everything that happened. they looked at what made us different from other crises that different people have run into. and they really recognized that it was about preparedness and collaboration. so the planning process was very solid and very structured.
8:06 am
and then the total respect that everybody had for each other on the team made all the difference in the world. >> but we also learned about the psychological resilience of the people of boston, right? >> right. i think a year later that's the most important story. i've gotten to know many of the victims and it is remarkable to see how strong they've become in face of this adversity. people who have had life-changing injuries, that are not only persevering but thriving. it really is the epitome of this phrase boston strong. >> so what do you attribute that to? >> well, boston is a tough town. there's a lot that goes on here, and there's great people. it's a big city but it's a small town in a big city. everybody seems to know each other. and i think that sense of community really makes a difference here. >> in our last hour we were talking to someone -- two people you know very well, bill bratton and jon miller. we were talking about an
8:07 am
inspector general's report. what do you make that there was a gap in communication between the authorities involved in the case? >> well, i think it's important to look at the ig's report and the congressional report. there are recommendations attached to each report. i think if we don't implement those recommendations as they've been stated, that we walk away from the memory of the people who died here. so these after action reports are extremely important and make us stronger as a country. >> and how are you personally feeling, ed davis, as we approach this very difficult time? >> well, i'm thinking about the people that we lost particularly, and honoring them today. there will be a memorial that starts at noontime. we'll all be there and we'll be thinking about what price we've paid as a city. but most ly about the strength f the survivors, jeff but a bauman and the other people. >> it's hard to believe it's been a year already. we thank you, ed davis, for joining us this morning. >> thank you so much, folks. a massive cold front is

8:09 am
and we could see as much as two inches of snow or more from ohio to upstate new york and into have the the have the. what we see in the west is another storm system coming onshore that will bring the potential for rain coming and going off and on all the way over the course of the next several days here across the pacific northwest. los angeles will top out at 71 degrees today and 86 degrees in vegas.,,

8:15 am
here at the finish line, john and karen odom were standing along boylston street behind me. the businessman and his wife were visiting fromc california. they never got that chance. >> there was a huge explosion. the thrust came from our left and it was very hot and it just knocked you down to the ground. and right away i could feel there was something wrong. >> reporter: john odom knew immediately it was a bombing. shrapnel had torn through arteries and veins in his leg. his wife, karen, tried desperately to help him. >> i knew we were in terrible trouble and he was losing too much blood. and our son-in-law appeared at my shoulder, taking his belt off and secured it on john's leg because he would have bled out right there on the street. >> i believed at that point in time that was where i was going to die right there. and i was okay with that, if
8:16 am
that's what was my time to go. >> reporter: but his family begged him to stay awake. the last thing he remembers is being carried to the ambulance. thousands of boston's doctors and nurses rushed to hospitals around the city and waited for the injured to arrive. among them vascular surgeon jeffry kalish. what kind of condition was john in? >> to be totally honest when i walked in and saw john, he had actual willy arrested, which means his heart had stop. >> reporter: so he was dead? >> he was for all intents and purpo purposes dead for a very split second. >> reporter: after the surgery dr. kalish told karen and the odom family to take things hour by hour. >> i told her that i didn't know if he was going to die, but i could not promise her at that point that he was going to make it out of the hospital. >> reporter: it was that critical for several days. >> and he was on life support for two weeks. he had 11 surgeries in 28 days.
8:17 am
and it was a rough time. >> reporter: the force of the blast had injured odom's brain, but eventually he recovered enough to begin his grueling physical therapy at spalding rehabilitation hospital. the day you met your physical therapist she asked you, what are your goals? >> i said my goals are to actually walk, to be able to dance with my wife, and to play golf. i had to learn how to do everything. i had to learn how to go to the bathroom, brush my teeth, comb my hair. >> reporter: doctors weren't sure if odom would ever walk again, but his physical therapist, jessica gilbert, encouraged him to believe he could. >> they don't know if i really thought i really could could until jesse took me down to the parallel bars and said, john, let's stand up. and i knew at that point in time i was going to walk and there was nothing going to stop me now. >> reporter: john odom did walk
8:18 am
out of that hospital, the last of the boston bombing patients to go home. and recently checked off one of his other goals, to dance one again with the high school sweetheart he married nearly 50 years ago, and the woman who stood by his side for nearly five months of treatment. what was that like to be able to dance again? >> very joyful for me, and couldn't take my eyes off her as i was dancing. >> reporter: last week the odoms returned to the hospital where dr. kalish saved john's life. >> i personally can't think of a more grave injury with the highest chances of dying at so many points along the way and such an incredible outcome. he definitely ranks as a patient and a situation i will never forget. >> reporter: the odoms are here today in boston reuniting with friends, family, and the people who helped john through his recovery. next week, they'll watch the marathon, cheering on the runners including jessica gilbert, the physical therapist
8:19 am
who taught john how to walk again. norah? >> what a nice button to that story, now that we've heard the story, we won't forget it either a. special shout out to the physical therapist, the medical team. when you are told you have hour to hour to live and have the story end that way. >> i know, that makes me tear up. i was thinking the same thing about how these doctors and physical therapists are the unsung heroes and now she's running in the marathon. i love he's married to to his high school sweetheart, 50 years together. >> dancing again. >> beautiful story. >> you know we never forget the three victims that were killed in the marathon but then you see the stories of the people that survived and recovered, boy, it's so bittersweet this time. >> thank you so much, elaine. and coming up, bubba watson stole the spotlight from a 20-year-old new cometory win his second masters. and bubba joins us with the highlights from his victory and the story behind that late night waffle house run. what was he thinking?

8:34 am
this tragedy in california that killed three crew members. that plane was 45 years old and suffered from fatigue cracking in its wing and in adequate maintenance. >> we've learned from our lessons in the past -- >> tom overseas the forest service firefighters efforts. he insists they are operating under stricter scrutiny. >> we feel between 18 to 28, the tankers are the numbers that we really need. now, we're not there yet. in the meantime, we're going to use what we have. the older air tankers. >> at neptune aviation, pilots say they feel safe flying the only planes. but keeping them safe is a job for the company mechanics. >> to the maintain the p-2s is challenging to say the least. >> hard to buy parts for this off the shelf now?

8:38 am
made you better on the fairway. how so? >> you know, when you look at life, you know, life can get you down real fast. sometimes in the media there's a lot of negative talk. for me, my faith, following the bible, me, my son, looking at my son, i want to be as christ-like as possible. i'll never be perfect. i'm always going to mess him. but i want to be the role model for my son, the leader for my family and the role model for my son. i want him to look up to other athletes or doctors the, lawyers, president of the united states. i want him to try to be those things but i want to be the role model, the guy he looks up to and tries to emulate or be better than. >> i think you're a role model, bubba, for a lot of people. >> me included. >> everybody who says your name is bubba. where did that come from?

8:40 am

8:46 am
americans 65 and older say a pew study shows americans 65 and older say retirement was a major reason for their last move. one couple took things a little further than that. they call them senior gypsies from ire land, turkey, portugal to italy. pioneers in the home free retirement movement. they have never looked back. lynn is the author of "home sweet anywhere" we sold our house, created a new world and started a new live. joined by partner and crime. that would be you, tim. you were together 35 years before. you had a torrid, passionate relationship. then you reconnect. you saw her and you still knew there was something there. >> instantly. it was wonderful. >> what did you see? >> well, look at him.
8:47 am
>> she saw me through a glass front door she has on her house. we looked at each other and it was like a shock wave. >> it really was. >> you still had the feelings for each other. >> so you get together. you get married. and then you were both reluctant to tell the other, you know what, i want to leave. i want to go. >> well, we were living near my children and grandchildren. we have the dog and the house and the whole thing. you know. it's hard to say, you know what, honey, i would like to go live in london. could we go stay in paris for i few months. >> did you give up everything, though? >> well, we didn't want to have the house hanging over us. we wanted to be able to be gone. somebody calling you in istanbul saying the water heater is broken sort of spoils the romance, you know? >> i love it. what is home free retirement? >> we don't have a home anywhere. we rent apartments and houses all over the world wherever we want to go. >> for long periods of time.
8:48 am
>> at least a month. >> what's been the most fun thing about it? >> oh, my gosh, the people. >> and the change. >> the change itself? >> yeah. learning all the time. i think it's what is keeping us young. >> and you are doing this as long as you can? >> until the wheels fall off. >> your mantra is postpone nothing. you said most people live their lives, and i love this, most people live their lives with a vast empty plateau between bore dom and routine. and you said, tim, you don't want to live like that with her? >> no. >> i don't think she would let you live like that with her. >> we want change. we embrace change. what we found is that people who get in touch with us, which are lots and lots of them, want the same things. and now we get e-mails all the time of people saying i sold the house. i'm going here. i'll be in london here.
8:49 am
>> and you say you don't have to be rich to do this. how do you do it then? >> it's a arithmetic. you have an overhead when you have a house. and you take it and you add up all of your overhead. and then you take that number and you see how it will work out in the world. in our case, it worked just fine. >> just trade it. >> i hope everybody is watching this. you give new definition to retirement. >> well, that's what we're finding that we're doing. and it's good. >> your mantra, postpone nothing. congratulations on home-free nothing. congratulations on home-free retirement.,,,,,,,,,,,,
