developing news overnight. the tulsa police officer who shot and killed an unarmed man exactly one week ago charged, booked, and released on bond. more from prosecutors. meanwhile in charlotte, a midnight curfew put in place to prevent the type of violence, was it enough to keep the peace? live on the streets of the city in turmoil. two big hacks to tell you about, one at the white house
and one at yahoo! being called the biggest ever. good morning, everyone, friday, september 23rd today, all day, i'm alex witt alongside louis burgdorf. the police officer who shot and killed an unarmed man in tulsa, oklahoma, last week has been charged with first-degree manslaughter. overnight officer betty shelby turned herself into authorities and was later released on bond. the charge against her comes in response to the fatal shooting death of 40-year-old terence crutcher. crutcher was shot and killed as he approached his suv with his arms raised last friday. an attorney for officer shelby says she suspected crutcher to be high on pcp at the time of the incident. a lead investigator told the tulsa world newspaper that a vial of pcp was inside the car
but no gun was found. charges against officers, especially this quickly, are unusual. >> for many years, most prosecutors who work closely with police were very slow to move on excessive force cases, if at all. we're seeing public pressure, we're seeing more attention, and in rare cases we're seeing faster movement towards prosecutoring officers. >> after charges announced, tiffany crutcher, the victim's sister, requested full prosecution and conviction. >> we understand that nothing will bring him back. nothing will bring back our father, our son, our brother, our nephew, our cousin. our goal now as a family is to ensure that this never happens to another innocent citizen. >> well, the streets of charlotte are calm this morning following the first night of peaceful protests over the shooting death of keith scott. this as the curfew winds down. charlotte's mayor requested the
protest through 6:00 a.m. this morning. officers would not enforce it as long as the demonstrators remained peaceful, and by and large the crowds did, though at one point officers used tear gas to disperse a group that gathered and blocked interstate 277. two officers were treated after being sprayed with some sort of chemical treatment. meanwhile, the 26-year-old man shot during wednesday night's violent demonstrations has died. yesterday charlotte's police chief said they are trying to figure out who fired the fatal shot. officers previously said a citizen was responsible. nbc's sarah rosario, good morning to you. the curfew is set to expire in less than 30 minutes. did it need to be in place last night, based on how everyone was behaving? >> reporter: well, i think local officials here wanted that curfew in place because of what happened the past two nights, but thankfully we had peaceful
protests in charlotte last night, the protesters stayed out past their curfew, but what protesterse taking issue with last night is they want the police chief to release the video of keith scott's shooting death and it's something the police chief says he's not willing to do while the case is still under investigation. a third night of people taking to the streets with police in riot gear, but thursday night a message rings clear, protesters appealing for video showing the shooting death of 43-year-old keith scott, dying at the hands of police tuesday. their hope, to resolve different accounts of what happened. >> what i see in that video is an individual who is sitting in a car, who gets out in a calm, peaceful manner. >> reporter: the police chief only agreeing to show the video to keith scott's family, their lawyer, and the state bureau of investigations. >> i'm going to be very intentional about protecting the integrity of the investigation and in so doing, i'm not going to release the video.
>> reporter: police say scott ignored multiple warnings to drop his weapon, although the chief admits he didn't definitively see him point the gun at officers, but scott's family says he wasn't holding a gun, but instead a book while waiting for his child to get off the bus. their lawyer says the video does not show a weapon. >> i did not see a firearm on the ground or at any point during those videos. it leaves more questions than answers, honestly. >> reporter: despite the disparities, it's the latest officer-involved shooting of a black man, following a series of similar cases across the nation. the governor saying this is in no way a definition of who north carolinians are. >> we're not going to let a few hours give a negative impact on a great city. >> reporter: while protesters remained relatively calm thursday, tensions are high with concerned citizens and demonstrators hoping for justice. >> sarah rosario, thank you for that. at a speech in pittsburgh, donald trump addressed the unrest in charlotte yesterday,
sketching out how his administration would approach crime and where the focus would be. >> we need a national anticrime agenda to make our cities safe again. we have to make our cities safe again. we will appoint the best prosecutors, investigators, and federal law enforcement officers in the country to dismantle the international cartels, gangs, and criminal syndicates, and i will stop the drugs from flowing into our country and poisoning our youth and many other people. and if you're not aware, drugs are a very, very big factor in what you're watching. on television at night. >> and last night trump brought a more politically charged message on law and order. >> we must work with our police, not against our police. they are great people, and they do a great job.
those peddling the narrative of cops as a racist force in our society, and this is a narrative that is supported with a nod by my opponent, you see what she's saying and it's not good, shared directly in the responsibility for the unrest that is afflicting our country and hurting those who have really the very least. hillary clinton does not have to worry about the sirens and the gunshots at night. she doesn't worry about it. she's sleeping. she's sleeping. no, it's the poor family living in the inner city. it's the mother who feels like a refugee in her own country. who is there to represent these families? clinton doesn't want to hear their voices. >> republican congressman robert pithen jer is looking to do damage control after making
comments object the protesters in charlotte. he claimed the demonstrators were motivated by a hatred of white people, before later looking to clarify his remarks. >> the anger, they hate white people because white people are successful and they are not. yes, it is, it is a welfare state. we have spent trillions of dollars on welfare, but we've put people in bondage so they can't be all that they are capable of being. frankly, i was quoting what they were saying last night that i observed on your network, and their hatred for white people. and that saddens me greatly. >> you believe the protesters hate white people? >> no, sir, that's the comment that they made. i think you go back and look at the tapes, comments that they made on air. >> you mean the protesters made
on air? >> yes, sir. i was only trying to convey what they were saying, yet it didn't come out right and i apologize. i have many, many dear friends in the african-american community. >> meanwhile, the chair of donald trump's campaign in an ohio county resigned yesterday after this interview with "the guardian." >> i don't think there was any racism until obama got elected. we never had problems like this, you know? i'm in the real estate industry, there's none. now, you know, the people with the guns and shooting up neighborhoods and not being responsible citizens, that's a big change and i think that's the philosophy that obama has perpetuated on america. and if you're black and you haven't been successful in the last 50 years, it's your own fault. >> kathie miller released a statement after that interview saying in part, "my personal comments were inappropriate and i apologize. i am not a spokesperson for the campaign and was not speaking on its behalf
the latest polls showing donald trump gaining dramatically on hillary clinton in states all but written off by some. in a colorado quinnipiac poll hillary clinton has risen three points, but trump has risen by nine, trailing her 44-42. gary johnson lost six points. in virginia clinton's number is flat at 45 while trump has gained five points, bringing him to 39%. a nine-point swing in trump's favor in iowa has the race at 44% to 37%. in georgia, trump leads by seven, 47 to 40, and in florida, trump leads by 1%, 45% to 44%. still ahead, the first lady's passport and secret service plans in the latest e-mail hacking. plus more on what's being called the biggest hack in history, this time dealing with yahoo! and stolen information from some 500 million accounts. and hillary clinton sits down with funny guy zach galifianakis.
we dare you not to cringe. >> as secretary, how many words per minute could you type and how does president obama like his coffee, like himself, weak? >> you know, zach, those are really out of date questions. you need to get out more. >> what happens if you become president, are we going to be stuck with tim kaine for nine months, how's this work? >> i could send you some pamphlets that might help you understand. everyone thought i was crazy to open a hotel here. everyone said it's so hard to be a musician, but i can't imagine doing anything else.

cleveland, down to the exact number of stairs he would be climbing. also leaked, passport, the names of secret service on the trip to cuba, the names, social security numbers, and dates of birth for some white house staffers and even some of the guests at the vice president's events. the information was posted on the website d.c. leaks, which u.s. officials suspect is run by russian intelligent and is the same site that hacked e-mails from colin powell last week. as for the white house contractor whose e-mails were hacked, he also does work for the clinton campaign. it is unclear why he was using an unsecured gmail account to transmit sensitive information. let's turn now to business, where another breach is affecting one of the world's biggest internet companies. yahoo! saying 500 million accounts attacked in what is regarded as the largest cyber breach in history. try to get your head around that.
cnbc's nancy hungerford is joining us from london. half a billion affected by this. this is incredible. what's it mean for yahoo! and the acquisition by verizon? >> it is an astounding number, as you said. what it means exactly for yahoo! customers, let's go there first. the company has advised those who may be affected to change passwords and password questions, also birthdays and passwords, as i mentioned, but good news here, no payment data are believed to be exposed. nevertheless, yahoo! is telling customers to take safety precautions. what it means for the overall company, you remember verizon ya gre agreed to buy the business, so far the company has said they were informed about two days ago, they have limited information, but, of course, they'll be continuing to look at what the repercussions are and the big question mark around any
costs involved here. back to you for now. >> pretty incredible. thank you very much, cnbc's nancy hungerford from london. let's get a check on the weather now with meteorologist bill karins. it's all downhill from here. >> today could be the last pool day, not many left. the heat is going to be taking a break and the cool air is going to be moving in. let's take a look. the jet stream is going to dip down in new england, back door cold front, typically plenty warm in the middle of the country, the cool air is going to dip down southwards this upcoming weekend, so we'll call it the cool invasion. it's already moved into areas of the rockies. here's how we're looking today, green bay 60s for highs, bismarck in the 60s, plenty warm across the southern half of the country, new york city almost near 90 today. that won't happen again until next summer. as far as saturday goes, temperature drops in boston for 68 for a high and areas around raleigh and d.c. by sunday, it's
a lot of relief out there, louis. for those waiting for the beautiful fall weather, it arrives this weekend. >> all right. one more story for you here, it's a frequent stop for actors and celebrities, i'm talking about "between two ferns with zach galifianakis." president obama made an appearance to promote the affordable care act, now hillary clinton's interview just went up on the website. >> i'd love to meet the person who makes your pantsuits. >> really? >> yeah, because for halloween i wanted to go as a librarian from outerspace. >> i think that would be a good look on you. >> have you thought about what you're wearing at the debates? >> there's a thing called the double standard. i think what should the first woman nominee of one of our two major party nominee wear to the debate, i have no idea. if you have suggestions, i'm open to it. >> do you have any idea what your opponent will be wearing? >> i assume he'll wear the red power tie. maybe like a white power tie. >> that's even more appropriate.
>> when you went to donald trump's wedding, did he write his own vows, and did michelle obama write melania's? >> i really couldn't see or hear very well, so i'm not quite sure what his vows were, but i'm sure they were great and huge and wonderful. >> first you supported obama's transpacific partnership deal, then you were against it. i think people deserve to know, are you down with tpp? >> i'm not down with tpp. >> no, you're supposed to say, yeah, you know me. like the hip hop group. >> don't tell me what to say. >> fine, lose. country goes to [ bleep ]. this has been a lot of fun, we should stay in touch. what's the best way to reach you, e-mail? >> you've got mail. >> that interview was taped exactly two weeks ago, the same day that clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia, alex.
>> i don't know, favorite line, did michelle obama write melania's wedding vows? that was pretty good. all right, let's get to this, everybody. part of our exclusive interview with the president of turkey and his thoughts of salvaging the cease-fire in syria. we'll be right back with that. ♪ using 60,000 points from my chase ink card i bought all the framework... wire... and plants needed to give my shop... a face... no one will forget. see what the power of points can do for your business. learn more at chase.com/ink trust number one doctor recommended dulcolax see what the power of points can do foconstipated?ess.
joseph dunnburg squarely blamed the russians for what he calls an unacceptable atrocity. >> i don't have the facts. there were some other aircraft in the area that belonged to the regime at or about the same time, so i can't conclusively say it was the russians, but it was either the russians or the regime. there's no doubt in my mind that the russians are responsible. i just don't know whose aircraft actually dropped the bombs. >> joining us now from london, matt bradley. matt, good morning to you. this comes amid reports in an uptick ofir strikes in aleppo. >> good morning, alex. after hearing that kind of talk from all sides of the conflict, there is little hope for the peace treaty that's over syria right now. nevertheless, u.s. secretary of state john kerry said he still expects to hear back from moscow today about the possibility of extending this truce.
now, considering the reality on the ground in syria, the chances that peace could prevail are very slim. diplomats are still trading angry acquisitions over an air strike of an aid shipment this week that killed at least 20 civilians, as you noted, alex. just today aleppo has seen some of its worst attacks in months. the syrian regime announced a fresh offensive against rebels there and regime forces spent all night bombarding eastern aleppo, where about 250,000 civilians remain holed up. the white helmets of the volunteers have become famous for rescuing civilians in the conflict saying three out of four centers destroyed in a rash of some 60 air strikes, but alongside this sudden rise in violence and all but failed negotiations, one remaining deliver of hope, the u.n. delivered food, medicine, and other emergency supplies to a town outside damascus last night. that's about enough to help some
35,000 people, alex. >> not enough, but at least it's something. thank you so much, matt bradley. while russia and the u.s. are not abandoning the cease-fire, no matter how fragile, other key nations in the region are more pessimistic. ayman mohyeldin sat down with the president of turkey for an exclusive interview. >> there was talk about a cease-fire signed or greagreed in the last two weeks. is the cease-fire in syria dead? >> translator: unfortunately, it is a stillborn baby, a period of 48 hours was initiated and then a week was discussed if the first 48 hours was a successful one, but it never happened. the hostilities was significantly interrupted. >> we're going to have much more of that interview coming up on "morning joe." after a break, louis and i will bring you a check of the stories happening in the day ahead. hey honey,
yoyeah, i do.e? you guys are working on some pretty big stuff over there, right? like a new language for crazy-big, world-changing machines. well, not me specifically. i work on the industrial side. so i build the world-changing machines. i get it. you can't talk because it's super high-level. no, i actually do build the machines. blink if what you're doing involves encrypted data transfer. wait, wh? wowwww... wow? what wow? there is no wow. it's a very specific moment, the launch window.
we have to be very precise. if we're not ready when the planets are perfectly aligned, that's it. we need really tight temperature controls. engineering, aerodynamics- a split second too long could mean scrapping it all and starting over. propulsion, structural analysis- maple bourbon caramel. that's what we're working on right now. from design through production, siemens technology helps manufacturers meet critical deadlines. i think this'll be our biggest flavor yet. when you only have one shot, you need a whole lot of ingenuity. one more story for you before we hand it over to "morning joe" on this friday. yesterday a police officer who was wounded in a shootout with a man accused of setting off bombs in new york and new jersey
visited the students who made thank you cards for him. the officer visited linden school number five, a school his grandson attends and where he volunteers for the pta. the students thanked both officers wounded monday, including officer pete hammer, whose head was grazed by a bullet or piece of shrapnel. he promised to come back to play basketball and go to the school book fair. >> that's a good promise to keep, l right. let's get a check on the stories you'll be hearing about in the day ahead. an indiana teen accused of trying to join isis is in court today. he was dieted wednesday on supporting a designated foreign terrorist organization. and president obama delivers remarks on a reception for the opening of smithsonian's museum of african-american history and culture. the 4,000-square-foot building has been under works for 13 years and sits adjacent to the washington monument. the museum opens tomorrow. >> good looking, so beautiful.
that does it for us on this friday. i'm alex witt alongside -- >> louis burgdorf. >> "morning joe" starts right now. good morning. it's friday, september 23rd. joe's out is out with a family emergency, which i'll tell you about in just a second. with us we have former communications director for george w. bush, nicole wallace, former governor howard dean on set and professor at the university of michigan school of public policy, former democratic congressman harold ford jr., veteran ad man danny deutch and political righter for "the new york times" and in washington, senior political editor and white house correspondent for the huffington post sam stein and former ted cruz campaign communications director, now an msnbc political analyst rick tyler. a quick note here. joe is at bellevue hospital. >> what's going
