7:07 am
influx? >> we are very skilled at it and probably no police department in america that is better equipped equipped in terms of numbers of officers and skills as well as experience to do this. we have been doing this for many, many years, as you know. based on the crowds we saw last night of the blowing of the balloons, huge crowds last evening and the warm weather brought them out. today, this is probably going to be the nicest thanksgiving day in memory and expect close to record crowds. >> have the rules of engagement changed due to the paris attacks? will your officers stop to stop someone setting off an explosive vest? >> back to the mumbai incident, it became apparent that the terrorist threat was no longer to take hostages and negotiate for their surrender. the terrorists are going to seek to kill themselves or be killed in their assaults and they will kill as many people as they can and as quickly as they can.

7:12 am
tension. the belgian government has ordered health and emergency services to take special precautionary measures to ensure their facilities are not infiltrated. the tight security has been spot by their attempt to root out a terror cell they believe is planning terror like attacks in brussels. the aftermath of those attacks is still being felt. in an interview, eagles of death metal sound engineer said he narrowly escaped being shot. >> i was still standing up and i can see the gunman. he looked right at me and he shot at me and he missed and he hit my console and buttons went flying everywhere. that's when i went, lay down on the ground and we all just huddled. >> reporter: the manhunt for two of those terror particulars, abdeslam and abrini continues in belgium. it's now emerged that a month prior to the paris attacks, the

7:15 am
released a statement revealing something they had suspected for years. frank gifford suffered from cte. during the last years of his life, frank dedicated himself to understanding the recent revelations between the connection of repetitive head trauma and its cognitive and behavioral symptoms which he experienced firsthand. >> the symptoms are really very similar what you find in alzheimer's disease. >> reporter: his team has been studying the brains of former nfl players who had symptoms of cte in life and confirmed the disease in 88 of 92 players. >> well, i think the greatest risk is how much brain trauma you've taken. the more you've taken, the longer time you've taken it, and the earlier in life you start taking it, all of those factors put you at greater risk for developing cte. >> reporter: while experts say, overall, cte is a rare disease, the effects of head trauma on
7:16 am
nfl players have been scrutin e scrutinized in recent years and prompting the league to make numerous changes to try to make the game safer. in a statement, nfl commissioner roger goodell praised the gifford family for bringing attention to cte. goodell said at the nfl we are supporting grants to nih and boston university as well as other independent efforts to research the effects of repetitive head trauma. protesters in chicago this morning say they want to disrupt blackdemonstrations. some protesters destroyed part of the chicago christmas tree. demonstrators took to the streets in other cities and six people were arrested in new york. the protests are in reaction to graphic video showing an officer shooting a black teenager 16 times. it happened last year. but the video was only made
7:17 am
public on tuesday, hours after the officer was charged with first-degree murder. cbs news legal expert rikki klieman is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> the question a lot of people have is simply, why did it take so long for this video to come out? >> that's the 64,000 dollar question and it is a disturbing question, indeed. it is 400 days from the time of this shooting, until the time of the charges against the officer. now, i've heard all of the excuses. i mean, you had a police investigation, fbi investigation, and investigation -- >> it is taught that you must be transparent. you must get the bad news out there early because the longer you hold onto it, ultimately, it is going to cause you more
7:18 am
problems. there is no reason for this video to have been kept quiet, silent, for all of this time. and only, only a motion before a judge that it released the fact it was going to be released on wednesday, many people believe caused the charges to be filed on tuesday. >> this paints a stark picture of what happened that night. what could the possible defense be? >> the video is very disturbing and i think that many people will say, well, this is the end of the case, it's a slam dunk video. a case is never quite so simple. i would think that a good defense attorney is going to muster the usual defense in a case like this, which i thought the night was a gun and i saw a shiny object, i was in fear of my life, i was in fear of the lives of other police officers.
7:19 am
the other thing to remember, from the defense point of view, because this is what a lawyer is supposed to do, is that they will say that the dash cam video is only one perspective and it is not the perspective of the eyes and ears of this police officer. >> rikki klieman, thank you so much. got the watch team this morning. >> a rare moment, indeed! >> enjoy your thanksgiving. ahead, health investigators zero in on the potential root of the costco e. coli outbreak. we will show you the ingredients

closed up 5%. "usa today" reports automakers are also trying to attract black friday shoppers. carmakers hope for their best november since 2001 and helped by big discounts and financing offers. the strategy seems to be paying off. last year, dealers sold more cars than other weekends in november. experts predict that trend will continue. this morning, while many people plan their thanksgiving day dinner, others are plotting their shopping strategies. the national retail federation estimates more than 135 million people will shop this weekend, more than 30 million say they will hit the stores today. but the group also estimates nearly 60% of holiday shoppers have already started buying their items and those items, of course, on their christmas list. cbs news financial contributor mellody hobson is in san francisco to discuss black friday's blurring lines. first, good morning to you.
7:34 am
>> good morning. >> secondly, you look at how retailers have really sort of, like, fixed things in a way that they are getting these deals out to consumers throughout the year. is black friday still as important as it used to be? >> there is no doubt about it, black friday is still important. it's called black friday for a reason. it's the day supposedly retailers go into the black after being in the red for most of the year. but the rest of the weekend is now huge. thanksgiving, great thursday. and, of course, we have got the weekend, itself, saturday and sunday, and monday culminates with cybermonday so all of these days have come very important. today, people will spend about $3 billion shopping. that's what they spent last year. so they will spend at least that much this year, perhaps more. so the weekend has changed, but black friday is still important. >> i've always wondered, is it really good for the overall
7:35 am
bottom line, black friday, when you take into account the overtime they have to pay people and the extra staff they have to hire? is it more of a loft leader or do they really see the kinds of profits on that day? >> well, it's interesting. a lot of stores have no choice. they need to be open over this weekend because they sign contracts with their landlords that say they are open during normal mall hours. so they could be fined if they are not open, including some retailers today. if the mall is anchored by a big box retailer that is open, that may leave the entire mall to be open. no one wants to go shopping in a half full or half open mall. so it's still a big, big deal. and their highest gross profits do come for retailers during the holiday season because they negotiate the best deals with their suppliers during this period. >> what will be the make or break deal for this holiday season? >> i'm not sure if is there a make or break deal. the number one gift item remains
