12:05 pm
stephen silva pleaded guilty to gun charges last year. he says he loaned a gun similar to one we are going to show you to dzhokhar tsarnaev two months before the bombings. silva entered into a plea deal with prosecutors in exchange for testifying in the marathon bombing trial. prosecutors are looking for a 24-month sentence. the defense wants 17 months which would be time served: during tsarnaev's trial, silva testified tsarnaev claimed he wanted to use the gun to rob uri students. prosecutors say the tsarnaev brothers used that gun to kill m.i.t. police officer sean collier a few days afterit is marathon bombings. dzhokhar tsarnaev was sentenced to death in june. >> sarah: fire breaks out in the courtyard of an old police barracks. nobody was hurt. vogueors are at the scene trying to determine what caused this fire. >> kris: to brockton now. a dump truck and s.u.v. collide. go crashing then into the woods.

12:08 pm
the m.b.t.a. is looking at a $242 million budget gap next year. a big reason for all that money is that they are paying out a lot of money in salaries and overtime. nearly a quarter of all "t" workers are making $100,000 a year or more. rail operators make 30% higher than the national average. bus operators make 50% higher than the national average. and the most extreme example, take a look. a maintenance foreman made $315,000. he was able to rack up more than triple his base salary because of back-pay that was owd to him and working 2,648 overtime hours. >> sarah: presidential candidate donald trump and hillary clinton seem to be in a general election grudge match. >> kris: which continued at a rally that trump spewed more venom toward hillary clinton who refuses to back down from her claim that donald trump has become now an isis recruiter. while the stage may have
