8:36 am
probably no one who had fiercer enemies and for that matter, you know, good friends. >> reporter: and those enemies turned out in force when scruggs found himself on the other side of the law in a case against insurance companies after hurricane katrina. >> federal grand jury in mississippi accused him of hiring a lawyer to pay $40,000 in cash to bribe a state court judge. >> reporter: he fought those judges but eventually pleaded guilty in february 2009. his life as he knew it was over. he would serve six years in federal prison. so you go from the high flying world of dickie scruggs, private airplanes and a lot of money and you walk into a prison into an entirely different world. >> the sound of a steel door closing behind you has a certain finality to it that is both terrifying and sobering. >> reporter: but it was behind bars that scruggs would write his second act. scruggs began tutoring inmates working for their geds in a state where one-sixth of the population has dropped out of
8:37 am
high school. a ged and work skills confirmed. >> first in all the bad categories and i'm tired of hearing that and most mississipians are tired of hearing that and by teaching and watching these guys catch on it gave me a new sense of purpose. it gave me a second chance really. this is what keeps them in school, the library. >> reporter: now out of prison scruggs has founded second chance mississippi to raise money for adult education, make his mission a reality and criss-crossing the states. >> what type of credential do they get? >> reporter: talking to anyone who will hear him out. there's only about 10% of inmates that can read on a 12th great level and listening to student and educators at community colleges. >> can you improve your score the more you practice this. >> reporter: dick scruggs has borrowed from practicing law again but to many here that doesn't matter. pastor chris diggs offered ged
8:38 am
tutoring at his church, and when he needed help scruggs stepped up. >> we did not have computers before but now we do because of dick scruggs and second chance. for him to reach out to help a small african-american church showed me that there was still a lot of good left in him. >> reporter: it's a second chance to make a difference, something dick scruggs never thought he would get. by the way, he has some famous friends who are helping him with all this. went to ole miss, obviously, and he's still very popular there and archie manning is one of his close friends. manning family royalty in mississippi obviously, and he says that in mississippi if you don't have a high school education, chances are very good you'll go to jail. if you do have a high school education chances are pretty good you'll got to jail. wants to change all that. mississippi is last in everything when it comes to education, but he's determined to use his fame and what he's learned to change it. >> he can make a difference. tom. >> like to see a secondage. thank you, tom. let's check in with al.

8:58 am
there are people who are questioning some of the things that he has told over and over, including a story that he stabbed a friend when he was a teenager and that it was that moment and a few others that really pushed him into changing his life. well, donald trump addressed this at a rally in springfield, illinois, last night. >> this is a strange election, isn't it? man. you stab somebody and the newspapers say you didn't do it! and you said, yes, i did, i did it! no, you didn't. yes, i did! i stabbed him and it hit the belt. this is the only election in history where you're better off if you stabbed somebody. what are we coming to? >> once again, donald trump has crystallized everything. he says how weird is this election?
8:59 am
>> if you stab somebody you have somebody. bizarre. >> it's like the tupacing, really, there was a headline talking about the fact what does this mean? obviously in the ben carson story line and how he became this great neurosurgeon it made extracting whether or not it's important to the political debate and our nation's future it's interesting. >> as many people have said, ben carson's entire campaign is on his personal story, on his biography so if you start to pick away at, that for people who support ben carson, the fact he did grow up in poverty and raised himself and became this world renowned neurosurgeon none of that changes but there are these little stories. >> absolutely. >> and the other topic that donald trump has decided to weigh in on is the starbucks coffee. sure you saw us talk about it earlier and yesterday. the coffee cup at starbucks now red. it doesn't have, you know, snow flakes and christmas ornaments and some people have said that
9:00 am
donald trump has now chimed in. >> one of the most successful starbucks in trump tower. maybe we should boycott starbucks, i don't know, seriously. i don't care. by the way, that's the end of that lease but who cares, but if i become presidente we're all going to be saying merry christmas again, that i can tell you. that i can tell you. >> big takeaway though is of course it's the trump tour has one of the highest grossing starbucks in the world. >> that's important for us to know. >> wow. >> okay. we buried the lead. something huge happened yesterday. there i am on twitter, going around and looking at title and getting all my music together. >> prince, the music service title. the great prince, icon prince posts his purple pick of the week and his new song is if eye could get your attention." >> the i have it actually.

9:08 am
story and what inspired it which i understand is something right outside your doorstep. >> well, what -- i wanted to make a film that was about judgment because the world i live in is full of gray area, increasing gray area and yet we as a culture seem to be getting more and more entrenched in black and white positions so that's what i wanted to do. at the same time i was thinking about hurricane sandy happened and there had been this couple that lived outside of my apartment, black man and white woman, she was blond, and -- and after hurricane sandy i didn't see them anymore and they had become part of my daily life. on the school run, the kids would say hello, would i say hello and then i'm ashamed to z say even before sandy i stopped seeing them. somehow their poverty became more and more acceptable to me and more and more unusual and they just became part of the landscape of the city in which i live. and i -- i felt shame
9:09 am
surrounding that so i had an impulse to write and i thought that those two things might be interested to talk about because, you know, i think our response to homelessness is puzzling. >> it's so interesting that you have the personal journey which you just told us and the professional journey in this which includes your wife and anthony mackey, a friend of ours from the show as well. the casting, how critical was it to have her and anthony in the film? >> one the things i noticed as a first time filmmaker if you're making a film about a nigerian muslim immigrant and a junkie street prostitute people don't want to shower you with money, so -- so it helped if you have an oscar winner lying around the house and i did and that helped me get anthony mackey to say yes, so, you know, it was -- the casting is incredibly important when you're trying to make a film of this nature. >> do you think being a director now will make you a better actor? do you understand things about the process that you didn't
