set them free! >> sitting protesters doused with pepper spray. >> i was really shocked and pretty angry about sort of how they handled that. >> a slithering snake on a windshield. >> that was totally unexpected. >> and two old-timers battling it out for old time's sake. >> that day was not a fun day. >> videos that make you want to do a double take. >> we weren't expecting that at all. >> stories so shocking -- >> oh, my god. i thought she literally lost her mind. >> okay, i got it. >> so unique -- >> that hurt just a little. >> so original -- >> i dreamed up the whole proposal.
>> it will have you saying -- >> i can't even believe that it happened. >> that really happened. >> is this really happening? ♪ caught on camera: did that just happen?" >> shame on you! shame on you! >> protect yourselves! >> while i was there, it seemed like an eternity. but looking back, it's really just a couple seconds of a short video clip. >> "time" magazine proclaims 2011 the year of the protester as the occupy wall street movement inspires dozens of similar protests nationwide. from major cities to college campuses, americans rally by the thousands to make their voices heard. and at the university of
california at davis, just outside of sacramento, students stage an occupy movement of their own against a proposed tuition hike. >> set them free! set them free! >> steven mccone is a sophomore at the university and an aspiring videographer at aggie tv, the uc davis's student-run tv station. >> i would say the general reaction is sort of pretty upset that tuition is still going up and people are, you know, of course, angered by that. >> what begins as a week-long, peaceful exchange during the third week of november 2011 escalates into a global spectacle. >> set them free now! >> on thursday, november 17th, a few dozen students pitch tents a la occupy wall street and stay overnight on the campus quad. the following morning, campus police repeatedly warn them to break down their encampments. >> you've been advised that your actions constitute a violation of law. you have been given several opportunities to voluntarily cease your actions and leave this area.
>> that afternoon, campus cops decide to take action. [ bell tolling ] >> around 3:00 p.m., we're all up there, sort of waiting in anticipation for how they're going to handle this, and the word sort of spreads around that there is, you know, 50 or so riot police that are approaching the campus. they were told that they had to leave by the police, who then started to advance. >> boo! how does it feel? >> those who don't comply with the police order are arrested and detained on the spot. ten people in all. >> the only resistance they were met with was people who just went limp. no one was sort of resisting arrest or, you know, doing anything to fight them, except just going on the ground and going limp. >> stay back -- >> you're supposed to be protecting us! >> stay back.
>> the crowd was sort of chanting for them to let them go and to try and, you know, to try and get them to release them. >> set them free! set them free! >> as the protesters chant, they march towards the police and the arrested individuals who lie face down on the ground, eventually surrounding the police, making demands of their own. >> if you let them go -- >> we will let you leave! >> we will let you leave! >> looking around, you couldn't tell who was really part of the protest and who was really just there to see the spectacle. >> the police then give the sitting protesters a warning about what will happen if the students continue to block their way. >> don pike, the lieutenant who ends up giving the order later actually warns each student and says, you know, if you don't move, you're going to be pepper-sprayed. >> right now. >> you're shooting us for sitting here? no, that's fine. that's fine. >> true to his word, lieutenant pike sprays the sidewalk-blocking students for
roughly 15 seconds. as onlookers shriek and scream out for the officer to stop. >> you don't really expect that after a peaceful crowd forms that they'll be met with that kind of force or that kind of action. i was really shocked and, you know, pretty angry, really, about sort of how they handled that. >> steven is not alone in his feelings. >> the use of force by the police was unwarranted, really given that this was a nonviolent, peaceful protest. >> these are not the rights that can just be trampled on, especially by people who are supposed to be protecting you. >> definitely a feeling in the air that's turned their anger more towards the police, i think. that's pretty angry at what's just happened. >> according to the university of california's police policies and administrative procedures,
chemical agents are used to minimize the potential for injury to officers, offenders or to other persons. they should only be used in situations where such force reasonably appears justified and necessary. nine students doused in the spray are treated at the scene. two more are taken to a nearby hospital and later released. but before the dust even settles, the footage is already out on the web. >> at the time, we just figured that, you know, maybe more people on campus would be watching this and maybe people locally in sacramento, but, no idea that people around the world would be viewing this within the next few days. >> an ugly incident on the campus of the university of california, davis, is drawing outrage nationwide. >> the next day, the university chancellor, linda katehi, expresses her own personal remorse over the incident. >> i'm here to apologize. >> lieutenant pike and another police officer involved in the spraying are placed on paid administrative leave.
19 students and alumni involved in the spraying filed a lawsuit against uc davis, claiming the university used excessive force to break up the demonstration. in april 2012, an independent task force concludes that the pepper spraying incident should and could have been prevented. the uc police chief has since resigned. >> i think the pepper spray incident would definitely have an effect on how police interact with students and how they deal with similar issues in the future. coming up, two old-timers from the gridiron attempt to settle an old score. and an unbelievable sight when two whales breach just feet from this surfer. >> in 20, 30 years, they'd never seen anything like it. success starts with

two old-time football rivals stun the crowd when they turn a reception into a rumble. >> i'm a fun guy. unfortunately, that day was not a fun day. >> to tell the story of this bizarre, caught on camera incident, we must first turn back the clock. as a young man in the 1950s, angelo mosco was a big, tough guy, playing college football at notre dame. >> the game was tailor made for me. i was a very physical player and at that time the head slap was in. i did all the physical stuff, which was right down my alley. >> when it's time to turn pro, instead of signing with the national football league, masca decides to take his talents north. >> at the time, the canadian football league was paying bigger money than the nfl. i said, i don't know what the cfl is all about, but i know one
thing, i'm going here. i was a very bad boy. i was the bad boy of this league. >> in 1963, he is playing for the hamilton tiger cats and his bad boy reputation is about to go from famous to infamous. it's nearing halftime at the cfl's championship game, the grey cup. mosca's tiger cats are playing the british columbia lions. the lions' number 15, willie flemming, has the ball and is on his way down to the ground, when masca, number 68, comes flying in to seal the deal. >> and it was one of those bang-bang plays where i went over the top and caught the back of his head and there was no penalty called on the play. >> flemming takes the pitch up, gets away from kunitz and he nabs the elusive willie and gets the stop. >> fleming leaves the game with an injury.
>> fleming appears injured. >> and maska's team goes on to win the game. the championship. >> that's part of the game. i played the game the way it was designed to be played. it was just one of those unfortunate plays, and just because i did it, it just so happened i had a stigma attached to it that it was a dirty play. >> masca completes the stop. >> the bc lions exact revenge beating hamilton in the gray cup the following season, which would have seemed to have settled the score, but did it? fast-forward 48 years. it's november 2011 at the cfl alumni legends luncheon, a luncheon to raise awareness about the dire needs fund for retired cfl players with personal physical and financial woes. 74-year-old masca is seated at the same table as willie fleming's former teammate and retired bc lions quarterback,
joep, also in his 70s. >> i didn't even know he was going to be there. this was all news to me. >> capp who later went on to play in the nfl declined our request for an on-camera interview. however, they accuse one another of mumbling disparaging remarks while seated at the table. they just finished viewing the clip of the questionable play when they're asked to take the stage together. then, in what can be called an act of half-hearted sentiment, capp appears to extend the olive branch, a flower from a table centerpiece, to masca. >> when he stuck the flower in my face, he stuck the flower, and i said, well, maybe you should stick it someplace elsewhere it will really grow. >> up your ass. >> the crowd roars with approval, thinking it's all an act in good fun. but, after a second attempt by capp, masca snaps. >> i don't know what his intentions really were because
he didn't realize i was going to retaliate the way i did. i mean, that's the way i was and that's the way i'm going to be. i'm not going to change just for joe capp. >> capp reacts to the cane swat with a few rights of his own, sending masca to the ground. it's a scene right out of professional wrestling, which, coincidentally, is what masca did for several years after retiring from football. >> i have wrestled probably in 40 different countries. my wrestling name was king kong. from coast to coast, i'm like honey and toast, baby. >> so, then, could this 70-something smackdown be a premeditated gimmick? >> first of all, if i did it as a wrestler, i would have been on top of joe, not on the bottom. i haven't lost too many matches. so, it's an incident i wish it had never happened, really. >> moments after the brief brawl, capp addresses the crowd. >> sportsmanship!
>> the crowd shouts back for capp to move on. >> let it go, joe. >> i'm trying to let it go! >> and then the emcee steps on stage, attempting to diffuse the awkward moment. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> with that, masca speaks. >> and i still don't believe this happened to me, but if that's the way he feels, that's fine. i've never carried this grudge. he's carried a judge for 48 years. >> ironically, the mayhem these two hall of famers create overshadows their original intent to draw attention to the dire needs fund. >> i just wanted to get something going and see what we could do and help guys who are not as fortunate as i am. i wasn't there for the physical part of the whole thing. whatever joe was there for, he was there for the wrong reasons. >> capp apologizes for holding on to the past.
>> all i can do is apologize and i hold a grudge for a long time, but i came here today, i had a flower in my hand and i tried to give it to this fellow. >> but before capp leaves the stage, he tells one story too many about fleming's dog, apparently named after masca. >> fleming said, i named my dog angelo. my dog is angelo, and i kicked the [ muted ] out of that dog every day. >> so, one of the most discussed septuagenarian fights ever proves one thing, that holding on to the grey cup can last but a moment, but holding on to the grey cup grudge can last a lifetime. >> if you want to carry a grudge like that, oh, my gosh, and it's 48 years later? gosh, i hope that i can dream about joe like the way he's been
dreaming about me. coming up, a close encounter with the world's biggest creature. >> with nature, it's unpredictable. you never know what might happen. >> and talk about unpredictable, a snake on a windshield? >> that was completely bizarre to me and totally unexpected. ♪ [music] jackie's heart attack didn't come with a warning.

what would you do if you suddenly found yourself just feet away from the largest living creature on earth? captain ahab, watch out. >> with nature, it's unpredictable. you never know what might happen. >> rick and susie have been together for more than a decade and share a mutual passion for kayaking through the southern california bike of the pacific ocean. >> i used to row for a year at long beach state. >> over the past few years, they have gone on countless kayaking adventures together, often
paddling out several miles from the santa monica bay. >> i always say a pray while i'm paddling out, ask god to watch over us. >> we kayaked around the channel islands and it's just beautiful being on the water. the thing i like the most about kayaking is being out in nature and seeing all the wildlife. one day, we're surrounded by thousands of dolphins, and other days some sea lions came around the kayaks and i dove in and swam with them and they were real playful. every time you're on the water, it's something unusual and remarkable. so, i just enjoy being out there. >> but whenever rick and susie are out in deep waters, several miles from shore, they can't help but hope to one day get lucky and get an up-close view of the giant blue whale. >> some weekends we're hit-or-miss. you've got to get incredibly lucky to have one come near you. >> they're usually off in the distance, and you just kind of yearn to be closer to them, you know, because it's just an
amazing encounter. >> it's early october 2011. rick and susie spend the morning paddling out roughly six miles into the pacific when rick gets an unexpected greeting. >> all of a sudden, i hear, poof! was that me or did i just hear a whale? so, then, i turned around and heard it again. sure enough, a whale had just surfaced not too far behind me. and that's when out of nowhere it came into a big lunge feed out beside the kayak. and that was really exciting because that's the closest, most exciting moment i've had with a whale. yeah, when i was on top of the water and you have the whale surfacing near you, that's real exciting. >> moments later, rick does what few would dare to do. he attempts to get even closer by climbing out of his kayak into the ocean with a mini cam strapped to his forehead. all to get an underwater shot of this mammal that is roughly as long as three school buses. >> it's really peaceful. it was a peaceful, magical moment. >> rick finds himself
face-to-face with old big blue, a rare occurrence for even the most faithful whale watchers. >> you try and look at conditions before you go out. so many factors need to come together when you're on your kayak, because the whale needs to be approaching you. that's a long shot. so, it seems like a million to one shot, but you kind of make your own luck. so, i had my fins on, my mask around my neck and gopro camera. >> rick gets the shot he wants, but according to the national marine fisheries service, vessels should get no closer than 100 yards to the whales, nor should they interrupt a whale's swim patterns. >> don't feel like we're altering their behavior at all. they seemed to totally accept all of the paddleboaters and kayakers in the area as part of their environment. so, yeah, the whale's the most important thing. >> whoo-hoo! >> after celebrating with exuberance, rick posts his video online, but immediately afterward, he's informed by someone at the national oceanic and atmosphere administration that his once-in-a-lifetime experience will remain exactly
that, a one-time deal. >> and he asked, you know, for safety reasons to refrain from swimming with the whales again, also not wanting to encourage others and requested that i post a disclaimer on my website, which i did. so, i put on there that i don't recommend doing this and i posted a link to the noaa guidelines. my concern is that i wouldn't want to encourage to cross into the line of what could be construed as harassment. >> their experience receives more than a million hits. and in some ways, rick and susie feel that they've fulfilled a lifelong dream. >> how many people get to see the world's largest animal on the planet, bigger than dinosaurs? and to have that moment with them, you know, and you just, you want -- i get emotional because you just want to connect with them. >> it was really exciting. then a few minutes later, it really kind of set in. it was like, wow, man, did that really just happen? >> unbelievably, it happens again! another rare encounter with not one whale but two, this time up north along the california coast
in santa cruz. >> in 20, 30 years, they'd never seen anything like it. >> it's late october 2011, and friends barbara and adam spot several humpback whales in the monterey bay practicing a group feeding technique called bubble net feeding. where the whales blow bubbles around schools of fish, creating a food ball. >> that food ball moves around like a lava lamp would move around. so, the whale will then come from up underneath and come up in the middle of that ring of bubbles with a mouth open. >> like many whale watchers in the area, barb and adam rent a kayak and paddle around the bay. having no luck spotting any humpbacks, they begin paddling back to shore. >> i saw these birds. i'm like, let's just go over there. it was out, off the shore. and lo and behold, there was a whale. we got maybe three spouts or something, and we were so
ecstatic. >> i was watching where they had been previously, and then, all of a sudden, they came up. we weren't expecting that at all. >> and the next thing you know, they're coming right next to me. >> barb decides to focus in on a woman wearing a bikini and lying on a surfboard. >> the reason i was filming her is because she wasn't wearing a wet suit and the water is freezing here. it's like ice water year round. so, i was like, look at her without a wet suit! so, i had my camera on her, and, boom! out of the water come these two humpbacks, lunge feeding. >> barb's perfect positioning and steady hand help her capture a stunning moment rarely seen. her video of this spontaneous humpback lunge brings perspective to the enormity of this marine mammal. >> having that woman and the kayakers in the background gives you some perspective of how huge they are.
their 80,000 pounds are coming up out of the water. next to a human, you realize, wow, they are a huge, magnificent animal. >> but barb's next thought is not far behind. >> i could see they were coming straight up, and they were going straight down. and i realized, you know what, this is a little too close for comfort. it's time to get out of here. >> barb and adam paddle back safely, having been up close and personal with these 40-ton behemoths. when barb posts the video online it immediately goes viral, garnering more than 7 million hits with lots of surprising viewer input. >> we got all kind of comments from, wow, oh, my god, to this is fake. where's the wake from the whale? and it got out of control. i just finally just took it down, you know. just let the footage speak for itself. >> barb is in disbelief about the close encounter.
yet, after her experience, she's still torn about the relationship she and other whale watchers have with these marine mammals. >> it was really a tug-of-war of wanting to be close to them and at the same time knowing, hey, we're in their space. coming up -- you might have heard about snakes on a plane, but a snake on a windshield? >> we were like, is this really happening right now? i mean -- and who needs novocaine when a mini motorcycle will do? >> that hurt just a little. ♪

one fatality has been reported. in chicago a 4-year-old girl is in serious condition after a drive-by shooting that took place last night outside of a prom celebration. chicago police say six people have been killed and at least 23 others wounded in shootings this memorial day weekend. now back to "caught on camera." imagine the reaction you'd have if while driving down the freeway you saw a snake slithering on your windshield. >> this is a water moccasin, a huge water moccasin. >> that was completely bizarre to me and totally unexpected. >> it's a typical summer afternoon for the fisher family of memphis, tennessee. parents rachel and tony are in their car with their three small children, having just left rachel's parents' home. tony's in the passenger's seat and rachel is behind the wheel. >> we had been driving for about
15 minutes, and all of a sudden, tony tells me, there's a snake head. >> i looked up out of the corner of my eye, and i was like, it's a snake head. then i looked back down, started studying again and then i did a double take. i was like, what in the world? >> i kind of, you know, looked over for a minute, and he does a double take, too, and gets out his phone. >> being a daddy of now three, you just, any time anything happens, your phone's ready to start video. >> this is a water moccasin! >> and we watched this snake come out from in front of him on the passenger's side and start rearing up in front of him and sliding across our windshield wipers and then over to my side. >> and before they know it, a 4 1/2-foot rat snake turns their regular routine into a terrifying adventure. >> but i know nothing about snakes. so, i'm just thinking it's a poisonous snake, and at that point, i'm just freaking out. >> their next scary thought is that the snake must have crawled up from the car's engine, and if that's a case, was there a
chance it could slither its way inside the car? >> i mean, we don't know anything about how cars are put together. we thought, can it get in somehow through the vents? and that's what we were thinking. and we were going 60 miles an hour down an interstate. >> for now, the snake is hanging on. >> it stays on there for like over two minutes. i mean, we didn't see how it was going to fall off, how we were going to make it get off. and i kept thinking, how are we going to park, how are we going to get out of the car, how are we going to get the kids out of the car? are we going to have to sling it and run away? because at this point, we still think it's poisonous. >> the rat snake is not poisonous, but they don't know that and it doesn't make their experience any less creepy. >> when it started to crawl down my door it just gave me the willies. i didn't really think about doing anything other than continuing to drive. >> you're not thinking about slamming the brakes at 60 miles an hour, pulling off to the side of the road and trying to get it off, you know, on the median so that it can live, you know? that's not what you're thinking of. you're thinking of your family's safety, which is exactly what we were thinking of.
>> the snake falls off the driver's side mirror on to the road, never to be seen again by the fishers. tony shows the video to a few amazed friends and then posts it online. >> insane. >> within days, the video is everywhere. >> creepy stowaway made a memphis family's skin crawl when a snake -- >> all of a sudden, you know, the "today" show was calling, all these places were calling. it's like, was this really happening right now? >> i don't know how they're driving straight. i would be off the highway. >> that would really get your attention. >> crazy! >> it's creepy. >> seeing the video on like the front page of bbc news on their website, that was pretty crazy. >> i mean, it's a cool thing. if somebody had showed it to me on their phone, i would be like, that's pretty crazy. that's amazing to see, but i would not have expected it to go viral. >> however, with more than a million hits, many viewers criticized tony and rachel for how they handled the situation. >> from the youtube community, we heard just some hateful comments, and that probably was
the most surprising thing of the whole experience of this snake on the car video. we weren't out to kill a snake that day. we were just driving and that's what happened to us. >> their three small children seated in the back missed the entire ordeal. but some day, tony and rachel hope to share their unusual serpentine encounter with them. >> ready, jump! >> as the kids get older, i think it's going to be really fun to show them the video. i think that will be a neat little family story. >> so, for now, things are back to normal for the fisher family with one small exception. >> all right, where are we going? >> okay, i got it. >> what do you get when you mix the children of a risk-taking parent, a loose tooth and a mini motorcycle? a recipe for some of the oddest family dentistry ever caught on
camera. >> you know, i have all these cameras laying around, so i was like, might as well put them to use. >> dave england of ohi, california, has two children, 10-year-old ruby and 7-year-old rowan, who have been at it since dave can remember. >> you know, they're just like your classic siblings, you know. they're always bickering over something. always out doing something, always up to some little mischief. and they're good kids, though, you know. >> if you think dave's face may look familiar, it's because he's one of the guys in the cast of the jackass movie franchise. >> what we do on "jackass" isn't for little kids, so, having two little kids, i don't let them watch it in its entirety. but seth, the editor over at "jackass," he puts together little clips that are safe enough, i feel, for them to see. >> one clip featuring cast member aaron mcgaughey grabs the kids' attention and never lets go. >> are you stoked? >> yeah! >> ahhhh! >> this one stunt where they pull aaron's tooth out with like a hotrod or something. and i thought it would be real funny if we did a motorcycle video.
>> and as fate has it, rowan happens to be at an age where loose teeth are in abundance. >> when rowan's front tooth became loose, ruby really wanted to do it. and i wasn't sure about it, so i pulled that out with a string and kind of imagined what that would be like to be pulled out by a motorcycle, and it really didn't seem that bad. it came out pretty easily. and as long as he gets the motion going from the right direction. >> i saw the video of my dad pulling it out like that and it made a crazy noise. and i was like, wait a minute, motorcycle. we should pull his tooth out with a motorcycle. >> of course! who wouldn't think of that? >> my dad was standing right there and i was like, dad, we should do it! >> when the next tooth over became loose, i was like, got it. let's see if you can do it. >> ruby hatches her scheme with dad's approval, but what about rowan? he is the guinea pig, after all. >> i wanted to do it, but when we were going to, i felt a little scared. you don't want to think about it too much.
>> with three cameras rolling, ruby ties a string around her brother's loose baby tooth. >> lean back. >> but not without rowan getting in a verbal jab or two. >> you don't know how to tie it. >> i do, too. >> and your hand tastes disgusting. >> i'm not going to touch your mouth. open up. lean backwards. >> your breath stinks! >> move backwards. >> your breath stinks! >> lean backwards. i'll hold my breath. >> rowan reels in anticipation. ruby revs up the engine and lets her rip. >> ahh. that hurt just a little bit. >> the pint-sized stunt is executed to perfection, except for one minor detail. >> well, it got lost in the gravel. >> the loose tooth flies from rowan's mouth, landing -- well, no one is quite sure where it
lands. >> we didn't know if it was in the driveway or it flew into the side, but it was probably in front by the gravel, so i thought that i was probably going to find it but i didn't. >> there was a little lack of foresight there, where the tooth would be left, all the gravel. i didn't really think that one through. i was just thinking where's a good place for her to take off on the motorcycle and then we could not find the tooth, and that's kind of unfortunate. >> as far as rowan is concerned, he has some explaining to do to a certain dental pixie. >> dear tooth fairy, i am sorry i lost my tooth from a motorcycle -- >> well, to make up for that, i just wrote a note to the tooth fairy so i would still get the money, probably, but i still did. >> after viewing the video, one can't help but notice that, at least in this instance, the
apple doesn't fall far from the tree. still, dave insists that the bumps and bruises he's taken on "jackass" have had a reverse effect on ruby and rowan. >> they're more cautious than the average kid because they see me coming home albeit up all the time, and they're like, they don't want to end up like that, you know? >> well, hold on to that thought, dave, because according to your kids, they're not through yet. >> we're trying to make a kids tv show. it's not going to be named "jackass jr.," but it's kind of like that, and it's like safe stunts, but like pulling pranks on people and we really want to start that show, but we haven't been able to yet. coming up -- a couple's love story makes its way to the silver screen. >> it was just an unreal moment. >> but first, it's this couple that makes quite a scene. >> i hate you so much.
