7:13 am
devices larger than a cell phone would have to be stored in the cargo hold. there is concern that could pose a fire risk due to lithium ion batteries. airlines are worried an expanded ban will hurt the bottom line discouraging business travelers who work on long flights and after the recent confrontations between airline staff and customers like this high-profile removal of a united airlines passenger airlines are hesitant about the idea of having to individually search passengers for electronic deviceses. u.s. officials began discussing an agirl or wider -- additional or wider ban following the laptop bombing of a somali airliner last year. the obama administration ultimately decided a wider ban would be impractical, but there is concern an explosive that might not be detected on airport scanners could get on an aircraft and that's what's driving this. dhs and the airlines are set to meet later this week for the final decision coming in the next few weeks. charlie? >> kris, thanks. polls close this morning in

south korea. and it appears liberal candidate moon jae-in will be the next president. moon and his main rival have stark differences on issues with global implications, including how to contain the growing threat from north korea and what to do about a controversial missile defense system deployed by the u.s. known as thaad. adriana diaz is tracking the election results in seoul, south korea. good morning. >> good morning. south korean exit polls just released predict that the liberal frontrunner, moon jae-in, will win by a landslide. moon favors engagement with pyongyang, not isolation. and that could change the course of the current crisis with north korea. as south koreans line up at the polls today, early indications show they're voting for change. in this crowded race liberal moon jae-in is leading in the polls. he's promised to reverse course on north korea. calling for trade and direct talks rather than the existing
7:15 am

7:16 am
why do you oppose it? the only reason america deployed thaad here is to dominate asia. this man said. america's presence here only raises the threat of war. thaad's potential removal would deal a blow to america's military influence here in south korea and a victory to china who opposes thaad over fears it could peer into its territory. official election results are expected in the next few hours. once moon is confirmed the winner he will be sworn in and take office first thing tomorrow. >> wide-ranging implications. adriana diaz in south korea, thank you so much. an arizona man is in custody for a string of killings that terrorized the phoenix area for about a year. police say that 23-year-old aaron saucedo is the gunman known as the serial street shooter. he was arrested yesterday in connection with nine killings and a total of 12 shootings. the crimes date back to 2015. carter evans is outside the phoenix police department headquarters. carter, good morning. >> good morning.

8:13 am
doctors have treated 34 of the 48 confirmed case. when patients visit they are given a mask to cover up. that's because the virus is so contagious that if you are exposed to it and you don't have the vaccine, there is a 90% chance you will contract it. have you beggone a day without having a new days? >> we have gone zero days without having a new case. >> reporter: patsy stinchfield is director for infection control at minnesota children's hospital. she says the measles outbreak started four weeks ago. 48 of the 48 confirmed cases are in children 10 years old or younger. >> i just finished doing rounds on these children. they are miserable. they are in the hospital. they have ivs. they are not drinking. they have terrible cause of. some have pneumonia. >> reporter: the measles virus travels through the air where it can live up to two hours making it more contagious than the flu. the only vaccine available in the u.s. to prevent the spread of the disease the measles mumps

8:15 am
himself. what was that like? she doesn't plan to vaccinate her 5-year-old until he starts school in the fall. >> there is a big decision to make, are you going to choose to take the risk to vaccinate and get the long term chronic illness or are you going to take the risk of trying to do everything that you can in our power to preach your child from getting the measles? that's a very hard choice. >> reporter: doctors say false information linking vaccines to autism is hurting children do you get frustrate that this misinformation still is out there? >> it is frustrating because we know these disease right side contagio contagious, they can spread, they can take children's lives. all we have to do is go back to before we had vaccines when the united states had 4 million cases of measles. we will go back there if we don't continue to vaccinate. >> reporter: scientific studies show there is no direct correlation between the mmr vaccine and an increased risk in autism, eve in children who are

(and yeah, it's him too) don't stop now, it's easy to add to the routine. join energy upgrade california and do your thing. jury selection is under way in a trial following a deadly police shooting in oklahoma. tulsa police officer betty jo shelby is charged with first degree manslaughter for shooting and killing an unarmed black man last september.
8:19 am
"the washington post" now says the tulsa shoot cigarette one of 17 cases in the u.s. last year in which an officer killed an unarmed black man. some of those shootings led to protests. >> cbs news justice and homeland security security correspondent jeff pegues has experience in covering this. his new book "inside black and blue." it takes an in depth look at the crisis through interviews with price chiefs, loc i think you have what looks to me very disturbing statistics and very disturbing philosophies on both sides. what stands out to you >> the different views of police and whether you're talking to someone in the black community or police officers in the rank-and-file. it is stark. part of that is based on what we're seeing in some of these or what we've seen in some of these
8:20 am
justice department investigations that the views of policing in the black community are certainly shaped by the stops that people on the streets encounter with police. for example in baltimore it was found that 44% of the police stops were made where 11% of the population was and that was primarily the black community. so there is this emphasis on policing and tough policing in the black community on the part of police departments and that's what we're seeing across the country. and that sort of drives these different viewpoints of policing whether you're talking to someone who is white versus someone who is black. >> looking at the numbers that you saw, what surprised the most including things like that african-american men are more likely to be killed in a conflict. >> what surprised me the most -- >> by 2-1, i think. >> that was, obviously, surprising, but also what i was hearing from rank-and-file police officers who were blunt. that's what i wanted with this
8:21 am
book was to get to the heart of this issue, rip the band aid off and go out and talk to people without a television crew just my phone and recording and get to the bottom of the feelings -- >> what did they say? >> they talk about feeling overworked, under appreciated. we can't solve your psychosis. we can't raise your kids. we're asked to do too much. that's reflected in the book. also on the other side you have people in the black community who feel they are being treated like livestock, rounded up, thrown in jail. or penalized for minor infractions which threads a cycle, can thread a cycle of poverty. there's a real problem here. part of my reasoning for doing this book is to get to the heart of the issue, expose it and allow people to discuss it in an open way. >> it's interesting because one of the police officers said it's like when you're married and having problems in your marriage you have to admit there's a problem before you can move
8:22 am
forward. which makes it extraordinary terrence cunningham one of the top police officials admitted sometimes police get it wrong because that never happens. >> that's right. that was an apology last fall that was really overshadowed because of the campaign season but it was a critical moment in this debate where terrence cunningham the former president of the international association of chiefs of police, went out there and made this public apology, essentially saying law enforcement has enforced discriminatory laws in the past and we have been the face of that. we got -- however he got a lot of support. why? because it was an honest admission that he wanted to spark the conversation and did it. and that's what a lot of african-americans in these communities across the country have been waiting for police to acknowledge and then you can start the discussion and move forward. >> does it make a difference if the police chief is african-american? >> it makes a difference. but that's not the entire story.
8:23 am
it's really the approach more than the race of the police chief. it's the approach. >> the right approach? >> you have to have transparency that's why these body cameras are so important. that's why you see so many police chiefs across this country moving towards body cameras. >> transparency. >> it's important. also cracking down on the bad cops. there are a lot of good cops out there. 99.9% of the cops are good. and they don't want the bad cops in the ranks. they are being painted with this broad brush. so i wanted to dispel that myth too in this book and present both sides. >> the cops tell the closer you are to the community the less the crime, i think that's a very important point. >> you can't show up when there's a shooting. go there before the shooting. i move when i see these images on tv of police officers playing soccer in the neighborhood with the kids or throwing a football
8:24 am
or break dancing with the kids in the neighborhood. those images speak volumes about what good community policing is and you are seeing more of those images. but not enough. >> all right. a lot of work on this book. very interesting. >> thank you. >> congratulations. >> the book is called "black and blue." it's on sale now. did you know kangaroos bite? i did not know that. i thought they punched. ahead why an alabama zoo could be in trouble after this encounter between a 9-year-old girl and a kangaroo. it's not pretty. your local news is coming up
