7:03 am
wrong. if you make a bad decision i don't care if you are behind the shield or a citizen on the street. you have to live by that decision. >> police say the confrontation start said as he pulled scott over for a broken tail light and the officer's stun gun. scott's family is heartbroken. >> we can't get my brother back and my family is in deep mourning for that. through the process, justice has been served. >> the hash tag walter scott was trending on social media. in ferguson, new york, and elsewhere it sparked a national debate about lethal force by police. >> what if there was no video? what if there was no witness or hero as i call them to come forward. >> thank you, lord! >> this wouldn't have happened. >> north charleston is a city of
7:04 am
about 100,000 residents and about half are african-american. black officers make up about 20% of the police force. as for the officer who is charged, he is a coast guard veteran and could face up to life in prison or the death penalty. so far he has not commented and it is unclear if he currently has an attorney. matt? >> walter scott's parents are with us with their attorney. good morning to all of you. >> good morning. >> mr. and mrs. scott, please accept my condolences on the loss of your son. >> thank you. >> we know the police officer said that your son grabbed for his tazer and that is why he used deadly force. when you looked at the videotape, do you see any reason for the deadly force? >> i see no reason for the deadly force because i raised my
7:05 am
children better than that. my son knew better. i said i know that's not true. walter whatever he was told to do walter would have done it. >> why do you think walter was running away from the officer? >> i think he was probably -- he owed some child support and i believe he didn't want to go to jail again and he ran away. >> can you imagine and this was a question that was asked in the piece we ran, what would this situation be if the videotape did not exist? this tape wasn't made public and the circumstances of that shooting may have never come to light. >> it would have never come to
7:06 am
light. they woopuld have swept it unde others. i thank god they had the video. god has my back. when i saw it my heart was broken. i said it can't be. i saw it. i couldn't take it anymore. >> mr. scott, let me ask you a straight question. do you think race played a role in this incident? >> i don't really know whether it was or not. i can't really say how the young man felt but the way i saw it on the film, the way he was shooting that gun, it looked like he was trying to kill a deer or something running through the woods. i don't know whether it was racial or something wrong with his head or what. >> as you know he has been arrested and charged with murder. are you confident that justice
7:07 am
will be served in the name of your son? >> i'm pretty sure that justice will be served because god is in the plan. god is tied with all this going on and i believe in my heart that god -- they started and think god is going to finish it. i think he is tied with it. >> mr. scott, mrs. scott, mr. stewart, again my condolences and i thank you for talking with me this morning. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> a difficult tape to watch. >> and the family is in a lot of pain. it's interesting to hear the father say he is thankful there is a tape. severe storms expected across a huge swath of the country. >> we saw it yesterday and today and thursday too. take a look at the storms that we saw yesterday in southern
7:08 am
indiana. we have wind gusts up near 70 miles per hour. the wind was enough to knock the tractor-trailer over. it goes to show you the force of the wind. the power outages and a lot of tree damage in the area. today we are looking for the same general area. the similar storms. they could be very severe across parts of oklahoma kansas and mississippi. a little bit of activity and the flashes of lightning and southern illinois up near chicago. we have a few thunderstorms and as the front stalls out, this afternoon and evening, the storms start to fire up and last throughout night tonight. tornados are very possible with this type of set up. we are looking at widespread storms across the eastern half of the country. texas and the western ohio area we will see strong storms and it's right in this area from oklahoma kansas and missouri where we could see the strong
7:09 am
storms and wind gusts up near 70 miles per hour and hail at least two inches and we have to be on the look out for tornados. >> thank you very much. >> now to the race to become president, rand paul launched a campaign with a fiery speech in his home state of kentucky. here's what we know about senator paul. he is an eye doctor and still practices medicine and his father is ron paul. he ran for president three times and he was called randy as a child, but his wife shortened his name to rand and he was on the trail with us. he is joining us from new hampshire this morning. senator, good morning. good to see you. >> good morning and thanks for having me. >> you are running for president and those who have watched you have seen you laying the ground work for years. you have been in office for four years. was this always the master plan for you?
7:10 am
>> it's funny. you will meet people running for president and their friends will say in eighth grade he said he would run for president. i grew up more normally. playing football running track and being on the swimming team and academics and reading. never really thought about it. when i launched my career, i spent a lot of time becoming an eye surgeon and i never raul thought of it. i thought i may run for an office but never would i think there would be a constellation of events that would allow me to. i think the message i have to offer is a distinct one. i think it is resonating. >> you are now officially a candidate. let me ask you about the deals with iran and the framework deal and whether or not you support it. if it were written in black and white as president obama described it and iranians agreed to it exactly as it is described, is it a good deal and would you support it?
7:11 am
>> that's part of the problem. the iranian foreign minster wrote in english it meant something different than what president obama said. >> let's take that issue off the table. >> let me answer the question. let me answer the question. the sincerity of the iranians makes a big difference. if they say the agreement didn't mean what president obama said that is a problem. so far we have seen the fact sheet. the iranians put out 500 words and the europeans put out 200 words and they don't all seem to agree with very, very little information so far. i will keep an open mind and believe the negotiation is better than war. i have been a proponent of negotiation and i say that the law is very specific in this. i voted to put sanctions on iran and they can only be relieved by congress voting to a move and a lot of time on the quarter bill
7:12 am
that would actually say that any kind of permanent reduction or relief in sanctions has to be voted on in congress. >> you have had views on foreign policy that are unorthodox but you seem to have changed. you said iran was not a threat and now you say it is. you once proposed ending aid and now you support it and once offered to draft -- wait wait. now you want to increase it. i just wonder if you mellowed out. >> why don't you let me explain instead of talking over me okay? >> instead of the litany of things why don't you ask me a question. that's a better way to approach. >> is iran still not a threat. >> no no no. listen. you have editorialized. let me answer the question. you say have your views changed instead of saying my views have
7:13 am
changed. let's start with regard to foreign aid. my opinion has been we shouldn't borrow money from china to send it to any country. i also realized that things will have to be done gradually and if we try to eliminate or reduce foreign aid, we will start with the countries that hate us or burn our flag. we haven't proposed removing aid and i still agree. >> but you once did. >> i agree with my original statement from years ago. all nations should be free of foreign aid and my opinion is not any different than netanyahu's opinion. when he came before congress he said you know what eventually israel will be independent of it and in israel's defense, they wouldn't be forced to buy products from outside the country. >> do you still think iran is not a threat as you said in 20007
7:14 am
2007? >> that was a long time ago and events change. we are talking about eight years ago when i was not running for office and i was helping someone else run for office. i would say there has always been a threat of iran gaining nuclear weapons and that's greater than it was many years ago. we should do everything we can to stop them. i voted for sanctions and i am skeptical of the president's agreement, however i am in favor of negotiations over war. i have been one of the reasonable people in our party who has not been beating the drums for war. i think my position on iran is one that reflects the events and reflects the current history. >> before i let you go the question i was getting at in general is when you came to washington and realized i am going to run for president, have you mellowed or tempered your views at all some.
7:15 am
>> what i understood is that washington is horribly broken and we have to try to fix it. the deficit goes on whether republicans or democrats are in charge. we say it's the fault of one party or the other. there is enough blame to go around but we need more turn over. i'm a big fan of term limits and we will only improve with term limits and rules with the balanced budget that force congress to do the job they seem to be incapable of. >> senator rand paul. look forward to talking to you in the future. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> natalie is here now and speaking of the white house, breaking news. you have also got breaking news out of afghanistan. >> the breaking story where u.s. troops came under attack after a meeting between afghan provisional leaders and embassy official. an afghan soldier opened fire after the official left wounding three u.s. troops. the troops returned fire
7:16 am
killing the afghan soldier. it was the second such incident this year. new tensions from the u.s. and russia as u.s. officials blame russia for a recent cyber attack at the white house. they allowed access to unclassified and still sensitive information including the president's private unpublished schedule. nbc news they reported they had been hacked and they suggested that russia was the likely culprit and an investigation proved the country was definitely behind the attack. the fbi discreetly service and intelligence are investigating. history was made in ferguson missouri in the first election since michael brown was fatally shot by a white police officer. voters elected two african-american candidates to the city council. they had one black member even though 2/3 of the residents are

7:19 am
happening in the czech republic. the st. bernard running across the road pulling that poor boy on his belly. the boy gets up. that's like road rash. >> it's scary because he crosses a road. >> wow. that st. bernard. there he goes. thank you. >> what's going on? >> a little bit of everything across the country. rain down through parts of the midwest and strong storms expected and record heat. it's chilly and miserable in the northeast and we will see mountain snow in the rockies and interior parts of the northwest. that's the wea

7:32 am
>> he has been informed of the decision. an american woman said she was sexually trafficked to high profile individuals and even world leaders following a three-month legal fight. the scandal surrounding prince andrew who appeared unshaken in public caused deep concern in the royal family. the newest details have been struck from the record by a florida judge. this american woman called jane doe number three said she had sex with andrew when he was 17 and paid $15,000 by a former friend of andrew's registered sex offender. the case against the government over a plea deal reached through the scene in 2008 but the judge said the factual details regarding with whom and where the jane does engaged in sexual activity are immaterial to the
7:33 am
case. >> prince andrew will be relieved about this. they wanted to make sure he got this out there. >> buckingham palace issued three denials and the prince laid his own unprecedented statement. >> i wish to reiterate and reaffirm the statement which has been made on my behalf by buckingham palace. >> he refused to answer questions. >> the woman said you are now the third. >> his former wife sarah ferguson defended him. >> it's not his character. >> his attorney struck out earlier. >> she is categorically lying and making it up. >> insisting the claims against him and prince andrew are a complete fabrication. >> he is vowing to keep fighting in court to prove the
7:34 am
allegations are untrue. it may not be the end and jane doe 3 is free present relevant facts to the court and appear as a witness. that may have the british royals worries all over again. >> you mentioned alan derch wits. great to see you. what the judge said and did not say. the claims made by jane doe against you and prince andrew and others are not material to the case they are trying to join against the u.s. government. what the judge does not say is whether the claims made by jane doe number three are true or untrue. having said that what's your reaction? >> i feel completely legally vind dated as they asked him to strike the claims as irrelevant and put in the lawsuit. he can't determine if it's true or not. i submitted a sworn affidavit categorically denying the truth.
7:35 am
there will be an opportunity for us to cross examine this woman because we have served her. she tried to evade service, but we found her and we will cross examine her and prove they are totally wrong. >> you feel completely legally vindicated. personally vindicated? not yet. >> i am being sued by the lawyers for telling the truth on the "today" show. there is another opportunity for me to prove that what i said is true. i don't feel they negated it in another way. the media splashed the original charges on the front page of almost every almost and very few have printed the fact that they printed us legally. >> do you have a sense or indication that jane doe number three has changed her story in regards to you and inappropriate action and contact on your part? >> i hope so because she repeats what she said.
7:36 am
she will be committing perjury and will be charged and sentenced to prison. the real victim is real rape victims. when you have a situation like this where a woman makes up a charge or the rolling stone magazine case or the duke case that hurts real rape victims. that's why there has to be consequences for the false charges. >> let me ask you directly. do you categorically deny you had any inappropriate contact with the woman known as jane doe 3? >> i never met her. she made up the whole story. i can prove that. i will prove it categorically when given an opportunity to do so in court. i feel entirely vindicated legally because the judge's action puts me in the position i did legally. >> you are a legal scholar and you are used to dealing with legal situations but not used to being the center of a situation like this. what lessons have you learned as a result? >> you can lead your life
7:37 am
perfectly. i am 76 years old and never been charged with anything. one day your life changes when you are charged with something you didn't do. i have been involved with this and never knew what it means to be falsely charged. now i understand and i will fight back and not to allow these charges to go unanswered or the people who make them not to have consequences. >> let's get a check of the weather from dylan. >> thanks matt. we haven't talked about snow in a while. more snow in central and northern new england. still rain but you head north and it's more of a wintry mix. thunderstorms just to the north of detroit, but we are losing visibility and it's a cold rain and across central and northern new england as we get this wind off the ocean.
