8:14 am
but what good is that going to do me, and what good is that going to do for cassie. >> we saw people in many different states of agreement when we saw mr. margraves' reaction, i was just so sad. i was just so sad. it with us not my reaction, but i knew his. we know in the continuum of emotion, we've all been there. >> when your daughters first told you about this, i mean was it hart for you at first to believe them? >> no. >> no. >> no. >> it was difficult for us, you know. we talked to our kids as they grew up and coming from a law enforcement background and perspective, nothing good ever happens after midnight. go home, don't do this, don't do this. be conscious of what you're doing. how do you guard from a doctor? how do you put that guard in your daughter's mind? it's sanding and sickening. >> i don't think for us it was as much as not believing her, but not believing that something
8:15 am
like that could have happened. i was in the room when he was doing the treatment and he positioned them such that -- i mean i even stood up. i'm a nurse. i stood up to see what he was doing and i said, what are you massaging right now. and he said we just have to loosen those tendons, ligaments, muscles in that area and that will help the scoliosis that you have in your back. cassie told me in the car, i'm never going back there again. i said, why. and she said, he had his hand inside me and he talked her back into letting him do that. he made it seem like without this area adjusted, she would never be able to be the pole vaulter she wanted to be. >> he had done good work with her from the age of 10 to 13 as a gymnast. became a diver. bro eck her back as a divinger. had gone to several places for help. and she was home one time and was like, let's go to larry. that was my moment, you know,
8:16 am
that he'd fixed her before. so -- excuse me -- so when she went and had -- we don't even know what it is. none of us know. a broken back, a broken tailbone. so when he described what he was going to have to do and like it will be pretty invasive, i'm going, whatever we have to do. i want my child out of pain. if this is going to work, let's go. >> what was it like knowing something was wrong? >> for us, it was horrible. for me, i'm a failure. you know, my job is to protect my baby girl and i didn't do it. and so that's something that we're going to live with forever. we had no other choice. you know, we had to turn our daughter over to the u.s. gymnasti gymnastics. we were told we'll take care of maggie. don't worry about maggie. when we traveled to the meets, we couldn't go to the hotel. we couldn't stay at the hotel. we could not be in any situation
8:17 am
to help protect our daughter. we had to fully turn over trust. >> do you think that was by design? >> yes. >> more than just to build these super competitors. >> no question. >> to what? cover up abuse? >> i don't know. i don't know. but there's so much more to this that needs to be found out because each and every one of them are intertwined. >> senator jeanne shaheen said this is not a simple case of negligence or fail euro of oversight. there is ample evidence that many were alerted multiple times to nassar's behavior and they found excuses to look the other way. >> yeah. that's kathy clay gas and people at michigan state who were alerted back in the '90s. you know, if you think about it. lindsey would have never been abused had they taken action back at that point because she was only 2. >> not one of our daughters. >> no. >> no way. >> when you look at this collection right here, our
8:18 am
daughters would not have walked through those doors. >> right. >> if other parents come to you and say, what should i do to make sure this doesn't happen to my daughter, what do you tell them? >> believe her. speak up. >> teach them that if something doesn't feel right -- >> exactly. >> -- no matter who it is, to say i'm not comfortable with this and i need you to stop. >> i think one other thing you tell your daughter, you'd have to tell them, don't trust anyone. you can't trust your church, you can't trust your priest, you can't trust your coach, you can't trust your doctor. >> i don't know that i want to teach my daughter not to trust anybody. i think i want to arm her with the tools that when she's in a situation -- i think had i taught caylee that when i'm uncomfortable that i believe at 13, she would have handled the situation differently. >> i want to ask quickly about the karolyis. they received some attention in this, but how guilty are the
8:19 am
karolyis, do you believe? >> 100% guilty. >> do you think they knew? >> yes. because to me, how could they not know. >> so have the karolyis been held accountable? >> no. >> we know that they're being investigated. that's all we know. >> i feel we've had one person. >> say that again, doug. >> i feel we've had one person. larry nassar. >> what do you think about larry nassar? >> i don't care about him. he's one off the list. >> there's more of the other people that are come. in all of this. they need to step up and take responsibility or it needs to be taken care of. >> that's what cassie said. if you could put in one hand all of those institutions, msu, usag, usoc, if you could pun in one hand they genuinely picked her up, given her a hug or said
8:20 am
i screwed up so bad or our community screwed up so bad, if she had that in this hand and $20 million in the other hand, she'd rather have what's in this hand because her psyche has changed. she's different, nontrusting, and that shouldn't be how we have to live. >> cbs news reached out to all those the panel named. the karolyis who trained at the ranch have not responded. they have said they did not know about the abuse. michigan state university and usa gymnastics also did not respond. they say they did not attempt to hide nas ar's miss contact. the coach declined to comment. they're launching an independent investigation into the decades-long abuse by larry nassar. i learned so much from speaking to these parents. >> i did too. >> all just incredible people and their daughters are suffering so much.
8:21 am
abuse and the aftermath of abuse lasts a lifetime. >> and because the daughters are suffered, parents are suffering too. as a parent the one thing you never want to fail at, it's protecting your children. while it's not their fault, you can see how they're taking it all in. >> from my personal view, is there something they could have done, the daughters' parents, i'm not sure they could have. this man was so sick and manipulative and the onus lies on the executives who knew about this for decades and couldn't stop it. the girls reported it. the girls reported the behavior that they felt uncomfortable about it. >> but the woman who was a nurse in the room who didn't know it shows how sick he was. >> you don't want to teach your children to trust no one because then you're coming out of this, the lesson is treat everything like a barren scape of no human contact. if that's the solution, that's -- that's what's so tough about this. >> this is going to continue because more people need to be held accountable.
8:22 am
that's the only way it will never happen again. >> and it should continue. george clooney is opening up about his wife and young twins. you know they've got two babies now. ahead, why the actor tells david letterman, he'll be an old man before he can get back to his hobbies. plus the challenge of counting more than 19,000 animals. an effort is under way to track every creature great and small at the london zoo. you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll be right back. i like these yogurt bites.

from a frightened farmer, police in scotland found themselves in a 45-minute standoff with a bengal tiger. that is, until they realize -- and this is true -- it was actually a stuffed animal. 45 minutes! i mean their first hint that it might be fake is when they realized it was a bengal tiger and they were in the middle of scotland. it was a pretty funny situation except for the guy across town who was getting mugged while police were monitoring a cuddly toy. >> wouldn't you think if a tiger didn't move for five minutes, ten minutes, 20 minutes, that it's not a legal tiger?
8:31 am
>> that's just what they want you to believe. >> oh. well, it worked in scotland. welcome back to "cbs this morning." it's 8:30. right now it's time to show you some of this morning's headlines. scott pruitt, the head of the epa is taking a new approach to global warming. he's now questioning whether warming is necessarily a bad thing. >> so i think there's assumptions made that because the climate is warming that that's necessary wily bad thing. do we know what the ideal surface temp should be? >> he wants a debate so americans can be informed. in the past he rejected the scientific that it's controlled by youtube says i more than 200 million different they say these recommendations drive more than 70% of its viewing time. viewers are often led to channels that lead to conspiracy
8:32 am
theories, partisan view points and misleading video even when they haven't shown interest in such content. that's very trouble joolg smart tvs including samsung and rokus are vulnerable to hacking. they looked at smart tvs. it found they all track what consumers watch. hackers were also able to take control of the samsung and other brands that use the smart roku tv platform. they say "consumer reports" got it wrong and users have no control. consumers say the vacuum changes, it goes up and down. that would be freaky to me. >> usually it's because i'm sitting on the remote. pessimism about old age may be a risk factor for those with dementia. older people who had positive beliefs about aging were 44% less likely to develop dementia
8:33 am
over the next four years of their life. that's compared to others who have negative beliefs.

8:35 am
