7:08 am
dan shapiro was u.s. ambassador to israel under president obama. could this backfire for israel? >> it is a very damaging thing and i think it, unfortunately, is exactly what president trump wants. he has said the democrats are an anti-israel party, anti-semitic party. these are absurd slurs but he is trying to get those ideas cemented into the public discourse. >> reporter: democrats protested the decision as did republican senators marco rubio and susan collins. even the powerful pro israel lobby aipac said the congresswomen should be allowed to visit. omar has been critical of aipac and widely accused of anti-semitism for saying the committee funded republican support for israel. tlaib said black listing her was a sign of weakness and posted a picture of her palestinian grandmother, who she would have been prevented from visiting. omar said it undermined democratic values and accused mr. trump of being an islamaphobe. the two have been vocal critics

of both mr. trump and netanyahu and support a boycott of israel over its treatment of palestinians. the lawmakers have faced past accusations of anti-semitism, claims they denied in an interview with gayle king in july. >> would you like people -- would you like to make it clear you are not anti-semitic? >> oh, certainly not, yes. >> would you like to make that clear? >> yes. i mean, and that -- nothing i said at least to me was meant for that purpose. >> now, democratic leaders have united behind the two controversial freshmen congresswomen who the president has tried to make the face of the democratic party. and being in lock step with president trump may also have a political benefit for netanyahu. he is three weeks out from a tight election. anthony? >> margaret, what was the purpose of their trip? what did israel fear about the visit? >> the congresswomen say they were going to tour conditions for palestinians who they argue have been badly mistreated by
7:10 am
the israeli government. that's why they support the boycott. but israel is demanding that if they were to come, they would not be allowed to push for this boycott and that is what led congresswoman tlaib, she says, to call off this visit, including to see her 90-year-old grandmother. >> margaret, thank you. on "face the nation" this weekend margaret will talk with democratic senator joe manchin of west virginia and democratic presidential candidate andrew yang sunday here on cbs. south korea held an emergency national security meeting this morning just hours after north korea fired two more projectiles into the sea. south korea says they were short range ballistic missiles that flew about 143 miles before splashing down between north korea and japan. hours before the missile test north korea criticized south korea for continuing to hold military exercises with the united states. pyongyang also said it will never sit down with south korea for talks again. president trump hammered

7:13 am
>> reporter: former vice president joe biden also held an event in new hampshire last night to capitalize on the president's visit. his team set up down the street from the arena where the president had his rally to talk to voters and recruit volunteers. >> paula reid, thank you very much. the new york city police commissioner says there is a mental health emergency in his department after the ninth suicide by an officer this year. officer echevarria took his own life after another officer suicide. jeff, what do we know? >> good morning, tony. when we spoke to officers for last week's "policing in america" series off camera they consistently mentioned depression and ptsd among officers and the need for more help. how serious is the crisis? consider this. a 2018 study found that nationally officers are now more likely to die from suicide than in the line of duty. >> my wife has been my rock.
7:14 am
it's been hard. >> reporter: doug budney's son nick was a new york city police officer for 14 years and took his own life last year. >> we don't know why nick did what he did. a lot of it had to do with the stress of the work and things he's seen. >> reporter: the nypd has seen nine deaths by suicide this year alone. seven since june. last year there were four total. police commissioner james o'neill . >> beyond a challenge it's a crisis. you think okay. this is going to be the last one. and last night got a phone call and i just -- it just almost knocked me down. just took the wind right out of me. i just, you know, what the hell is going on here? >> reporter: at least 124 officers nationwide have taken their lives this year. in 2017, at least 140 officers died by suicide compared to 129 who died in the line of duty.
7:15 am
departments in chicago, arizona, and new york are adding more counsellors to deal with the crisis. >> think about the cumulative trauma police officers are exposed to each and every day and how does it manifest itself and make sure our police officers have access to mental health care so they can keep themselves well and do the job they want to do. we just have to make sure people know the help is out there. >> the nypd is offering counseling in new ways for officers to seek help, anonymously, but a study finds only about 3% to 5% of police departments nationwide have the resources that they need for suicide prevention. president trump recently signed a bill to give funding for police suicide prevention efforts. >> it is really striking. that line of duty deaths are lower than suicides. >> it shows you the scope of the problem across the country. i have to say, a lot of these police chiefs are having a hard time dealing with this. how do you counter act this and
7:16 am
get officers on the beat to admit that they're having these problems and that they're di >> i hope they find a way. thank you very much. if you or someone you know is in crisis right now, contact the national suicide prevention lifeline. that is 1-800-273-8255. pennsylvania's governor says he'll announce executive actions on gun control today after a gunman wounded six officers in a shootout in philadelphia. police say maurice hill had an assault rifle and fired more than 100 shots at officers. the city's police commissioner spoke only with our national correspondent jericka duncan. jericka, how did the commissioner help end that stand-off? >> well, commissioner richard ross told me he spoke to the suspect multiple times over the course of several hours and they mainly focused on family. he also had the help of the shooter's lawyer who encouraged the accused gunman to end the violent battle that could have ended in tragedy.
7:17 am
>> it was a harrowing experience for me. commissioner r ros was right in front of the home where the gunman opened fire. his officers came under siege for more than seven hours. >> i normally would not be right there with s.w.a.t. i would be in a position of command and overseeing. but the minute you have police officers trapped, it's a different mindset for me. roi >> reporter: around 4:30 p.m. a gunman ambushed officers serving a narcotics warrant and barricaded himself inside. six officers were shot and two others trapped in the home. all of them survived. when you look at those injuries, someone grazed in the head, someone shot in the hand, someone shot in the leg, what are the chances that six officers walk away from something like this? >> just sum it up this way. god is good. he just is. >> reporter: commissioner ross says he spoke to the gunman several times urging him to
7:18 am
surrender. >> reporter: what did you say to him? >> i was trying to appeal to him about his newborn daughter, talked about my family, my daughter, about what it's like and i kept telling him that to me, and i mean this, the most important title that i have is dad. and so i just kept talking about that. >> he's coming out. >> reporter: just after midnight the suspect finally came out with his hands up. how much fire power did he have, how many guns? >> we know he had at least two. we ended up putting in tear gas to flush him out. so he comes out with one gun on his person. that's bizarre in and of itself. >> reporter: do you worry about the amount of access civilians have to guns like the ones you were up against yesterday? >> i always do. i know that in my heart we can do better in this country. >> reporter: police still do not have access to the crime scene because tear gas was used there so they are not sure if there were other weapons. hill is facing numerous charges including attempted murder. >> so interesting. it seems even the commissioner
7:19 am
was affected by this, just watching it. >> when you think of the amount of fatalities in philadelphia during the 2006-2008 period, it is a miracle that you're not talking about more fatalities. i think that is what the commissioner really wanted to hit home. >> i know you know that city well. thank you very much, jericka. we have a verdict in the so-called hollywood ripper trial where actor ashton kutcher gave testimony in the case. good morning. we made it to the end of the workweek and temperatures are cooler today. much cooler for the weekend. we have another spare the air alert in effect for the 4th day in it a row. so highest today, 99 in concord, and 82 oakland and 75 for san francisco. much cooler though for the weekend.

"48 hours" correspondent maureen maher has covered the story for more than a decade.
7:32 am
what's next for gargiulo? >> good morning. he will be back in court next tuesday. it is not over yet. next week begins the sentencing phase in this trial. but he's also awaiting trial in illinois after dna evidence linked him to the 1993 stabbing death of a teenager there. >> we the jury find the defendant michael gargiulo guilty of the crime of first-degree murder. >> reporter: michael gargiulo sat emotionless as he was convicted of the 2001 murder of a 22-year-old fashion student inside her hollywood home and the 2005 slaying of 32-year-old maria bruno in her apartment in a los angeles suburb. in total, he is accused of attacking four women, three in california, and one in illinois. three of the victims died. in closing arguments for this case, prosecutors accused gargiulo of finding joy in butchering the women. >> this was somebody who was going to take pleasure in plunging a knife into their victim over and over and over
7:33 am
again. >> reporter: an acquaintance of actor ashton kutcher was stabbed 47 times. kutcher testified at the trial that he went to pick her up for a first date the night of the murder. >> mr. kutcher looked in the window and saw what he thought was spilled wine on the floor. we believe now the evidence will show that was actually blood. >> reporter: on thursday gargiulo was also found guilty of the 2008 attempted murder of 26-year-old michelle murphy. prosecutors say murphy battled gargiulo for the knife and they say his dna left at the crime scene matched dna found years earlier on 18-year-old tricia pacaccio killed in illinois. investigators believe she was gargiulo's first victim. >> this case goes on with me forever. that is the way it's going to be. >> reporter: the murder was unsolved until 2011 when two witnesses came forward after watching a "48 hours" report on
7:34 am
the case. shortly thereafter he was indicted. next week it will be up to jurors to decide if gargiulo was sane at the time of the attacks in california. >> have you heard from the pacaccio family since the verdict? >> i was the one who broke the news to the family. i spoke with her parents and diane was sobbing uncontrollably saying i am so happy, i am so grateful the girls in california have now all had justice just prior to speaking to her, though, i ran into a family member of one of the other girls from california, the victims, and the family member said to me, now it's tricia's turn. >> what a sick guy, though. what you said in the piece, what the person said that he took joy in brutalizing women. >> yeah. he really spent a long time thinking about it, stalking them, watching them, trying to ingratiate himself to them. he lived within just a few blocks and actually right behind a woman in santa monica. >> hopefully he will be behind

7:39 am
first on "cbs this morning" the daughter of a man killed by a gunman allegedly targeting black people in a supermarket is talking about her legal fight she hopes will change gun policy. the gunman killed two people in the louisville area kroger last october and now it is legal for people to carry guns in kentucky and kroger does not block its customers from taking firearms inside the store. "cbs this morning" national correspondent jericka duncan continues her reporting on gun violence and spoke with a woman who is on a mission now to keep guns out of the stores. jericka, what is she saying? >> kellie watson is suing kroger
7:40 am
after her father's murder and hopes kroger will ban guns from its stores while some businesses have gun bans in place, others especially in open carry states like kentucky, do allow weapons inside. watson says stores won't be safe for everyone unless something changes. >> it was unbelievable to hear the fear and panic in his voice. >> kellie watson says she was just finishing her work day last october when she received a phone call from her 12-year-old son. >> reporter: what did he say? >> his grandfather was shot. >> reporter: watson's father 69-year-old maurice stallard had been shopping for school supplies with her son at a louisville, kentucky kroger, when a gunman opened fire killing two people including stallard. what do you think stopped the alleged gunman from shooting your son? >> because he ran. that's it. >> reporter: watson's son survived. >> if he hadn't run i would not have my son or my father right now.
7:41 am
>> reporter: gregory alan bush was indicted by a federal grand jury for hate crimes. this october a judge will determine if bush is mentally competent to stand trial. >> to think this man as loving and caring as he was to have been taken from us in the way that he was taken because of someone else's hate is unbelievable at times. >> reporter: last week watson and her mother charlotte stallard filed a civil lawsuit against kroger. >> who would have known that kroger would allow people to just walk in and carry their guns on their waist band and pull them out? >> reporter: right now kroger does not have a policy prohibiting customers from bringing fire arms into their stores. the company released a statement on its website stating their long standing policy on the issue is to follow state and local gun laws. and asking customers to be respectful of others while shopping. >> you don't need a gun to buy groceries. >> reporter: ron johnson is the stallard family's attorney. >> you can't carry a gun into your school. you can't carry a gun into the
7:42 am
courthouse. what we are simply saying is grocery stores need to do the same thing. >> reporter: the lawsuit details more than two dozen gun related incidents resulting in eight deaths inside and outside of kroger stores nationwide. >> the duty of a store in kentucky is to provide a safe place to shop. that is the law. so retailers like target and starbucks have said, having guns in our stores is not consistent with having a safe place to shop so they don't allow guns. >> reporter: can a judge force someone or an entity like kroger to change its policy? >> all a judge or a jury can do is give damages to those who are harmed when kroger doesn't meat its duty. >> reporter: watson says she hopes her lawsuit will help make public spaces safer. >> as this continues to occur not just at kroger or at a walmart or at a church, it is traumatic. it is violent. it is dramatic. it is painful. we have to do something to try to prevent these things from
7:43 am
happening again to others. >> reporter: a spokes person from kroger told us they do not comment on pending litigation but they extended their deepest sympathies to the families impacted by this senseless violence because there was also another woman in this, vicky lee jones, who actually filed a civil suit recently as well. >> i remember we covered the story, didn't get a lot of the coverage we see on the other shootings but it shows you behind these stories are real people still in a lot of pain. >> you can't help but remember what that attorney said. you don't need a gun to buy groceries. >> you really feel for this family and that is true you do not need a gun to buy groceries. thank you very much. ahead vlad duthiers will bring the stories you'll be talking temperatures a little bit cooler for today. much cooler for the weekend, so weak onshore floated and i will drop her temperatures down by
7:44 am
just a little bit, but much cooler with that ocean breeze for the weekend. for today, another spare the air alerts, and check out our highs. 99 in concord, 82 oakland, 75 for san francisco. much cooler as we head through saturday and for

8:01 am
earnhardts were extremely blessed and fortunate after everything that happened. let me show you why. take a look at what's left of that plane. no american congress person has ever been barred from israel. president trump got israel to block two of his political opponents, turning this into a diplomatic incident. even though it's gone blue in every election since 2004, the trump campaign thinks they can win new hampshire in 2020. when we spoke to officers they consistently mentioned oppression and ptsd among officers and the need for more help. police do not access to the crime scene, so they are not a company post for false advertising after she learned that they don't sweeten their honey bunches of oats cereal with actual honey. you know what that would make this woman? a cereal killer.

8:04 am
still from that accident. now, his father dale earnhardt senior died in 2001 after crashing his car during the daytona 500. let me show you one of the reasons why the sheriff says the earnhardts are lucky. an investigator is looking at chain linked fence wrapped around the body of the plane. had that been two to three feet over, it may have trapped everyone inside because that door may have been shut and people might not have been able to get out of that plane. as for earnhardt, he does not plan on working this weekend. he is going to take some time off and spend time with his family. >> grateful time. scary stuff. grateful that everyone is okay. thank you very much. a congressional critic of president trump says she is canceling a trip to israel hours after its government lifted a ban on her entering the country. democratic rashida tlaib tweeted this morning, i have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive

8:16 am
>> yes. the first week shock is probably the best way to describe it. when a mass shooting happens and it happens in a place that's quote/unquote not supposed to happen, you lose trust in everything. >> reporter: you have called this now a fraternity. what does that mean? >> it means it's a fraternity no one ever wanted to join. there was no playbook. there's nothing that prepares a mayor for this type of incident. >> reporter: have mayors reached out to give you their best practices? >> yes. hundreds of mayors, and that's been, like, very touching. >> reporter: one of those hundreds was washington, d.c. mayor muriel bowser who met with mayor whaley before our panel discussion. >> when you reached out to mayor whaley what did you say? >> shot her a message we loved her, are with her and i know how resilient the people of dayton are but i also know they want to see change. >> reporter: bowser, whaley, hunschofsky and dyer sent a letter to senate leaders mitch

mcconnell and charles schumer demanding the senate approve two university background check bills the house passed in february. >> mayors quickly move around the issue of gun control because it affects our communities so directly. you saw this past week 254 mayors sign a letter saying, hey, senate, get to work and pass background checks. >> reporter: in all three of your cases shooters passed back ground checks. why do you see that as the answer? >> universal background checks tied to risk protection orders together can make a difference. i'm hopeful that we're starting to see this movement happen now. >> reporter: you see that as a first step? >> yes. >> i do. >> just start with that one conversation with you know, the background checks where they might be able to find consensus. once you start the dialogue you can go into the heavier things. >> reporter: do you want to see an assault weapons ban? >> with the partisanship going on we have to establish the base first before we have that, you know, before the conversation. let's start with the background
8:18 am
checks. >> eventually i do think, you know, the way to get rid of these shootings is get rid of assault weapons's i don't understand why anybody would need the kind of gun that was on the oregon district saturday night that killed nine people in. 32 seconds. >> reporter: people make the argument even with no guns you'll still have incidents with mass casualties which we have seen in this country. >> we have. >> you won't see 250. i think that's -- that's the point. the guns are just so easy to get ahold of. >> reporter: you're a republican mayor. you had this incident happen in your community. did you change your views on -- gun control? >> i am more acutely aware. i honestly think right now the pro-gun people have some good points and bad points and same is true for the opposition. >> reporter: what would you say to senate majority leader mitch mcconnell? you are a member of his party, you have been there, you have seen this up close. what would you say to him to bring about the policy changes you want to see?
8:19 am
>> listen and learn from other people. take the opportunity to figure out, you know, there may be better ways of doing things. >> can i just say, too, this whole dichotomy of bipartisan issue. it's only a bipartisan issue in washington, d.c. 94% of americans say university background checks. it's not partisan in the streets of dayton, in the streets of virginia beach or on the streets of parkland. >> what mayor whaley said is spot-on in the business world. you don't see a problem and you have two people in the company who say, well, i think this is the answer and the other person calls them names and says, no, i think this is the answer and then they both just go away and don't do anything. that is not leadership. that is not representation, and i think that is what you hear often that the american people are just sick of. >> reporter: it's an issue mayors say affect all of their cities whether they experience mass shootings or urban gun violence. >> they're all connected to the
8:20 am
prevalence of guns, and guns unchecked in our nation. we need to keep handguns out of the hands of people who have prove than they are going to do damage with those guns. >> reporter: so you think this is the moment? >> i just pray it is. >> senate majority leader mitch mcconnell recently said he will consider measures to violence when the senate returns in september. he says he's open to stricter background checks. >> one of the things. i remember mayor whaley after the dayton and el paso shootings said all of these mayors called her. it really struck me -- >> love the point she made. she said this is only a partisan issue in washington, d.c. >> right. a fraternity no one wants to join but it's so big now. >> talking mostly about background checks. we heard bobby dyer mention assault weapons. on-air we have facts on the ground that led to the ban in '94. not only mass shootings high-po weapons in california and
