[ explosions ] >> reporter: on the street, it had the look and feel of a war zone. [ explosions ] >> reporter: police firing stun
7:03 am
grenades, steam bag projectiles and rubber bullets. tear gas flying. from the air, the crowd, panic. all the result of a day-long encroachment by police, who moved in the early morning, dismantling the protesters' tent city. >> the team that was in place, to put an end as to what i see is a very critical situation, that posed significant risk. >> reporter: but the protesters returned. trying to take back the plaza that had been theirs for more than two weeks. >> taking away people's right to peacefully assemble in this country. you know, this is really outrageous. >> reporter: also overnight, arrests in atlanta, with protesters defying orders to vacate a city park. this scene ended peacefully. but in oakland -- [ explosions ] >> reporter: a far different
7:04 am
result. more than 100 people arrested, 2 police officers injured. and other people, like this woman in her car, left in disbelief at the violence and chaos, unspooling in her streets. police said they had no choice but to use tear gas after protesters began throwing rocks and bottles at them. of course, much of what's fueling he's protests, is at evidence that only the rich are getting richer. this morning, a new report supports that belief. over the past three decades, the wealthiest 1% of americans saw their wealth grow by 275%. while people in the middle income, saw their income rise 40%. hurricane rina, hitting some 110 miles per hour. they're expected to get stronger. striking cozumel and cancun tonight. sam will have more on the

storm's track in a few minutes. finally, a cat that vanished at jfk airport here in new york and has turned into an internet sensation, has reappeared. jack the cat has been on the loose for two months. escaped his cage at the baggage area. he turned up at the jfk customs room. soon to be reunited with his owner in california. let's all breathe a collective sigh of relief, as jack as some 15,000 facebook fans. >> that picture right there, of him praying. >> jack's pretty calm through all that. >> he didn't go far. now, to politics. your voice, your vote. and president obama, trying to warm up with a few laughs on jay leno's couch. as republicans deal with a front-runner that is playing by his own rules, herman cain. jake tapper is covering it all from the white house this morning. good morning, jake. >> reporter: good morning, george. president obama wraps up his three-day swing through the western u.s. today, returning to the white house last night.
7:06 am
he told supporters in colorado that the fight over his jobs bill is a microcosm of the pending 2012 election battle. president obama finished the california leg of his west coast tour, appearing on "the tonight show," poking fun at the first lady. >> halloween's coming up. >> yeah. >> and she's been giving, for the last few years, kids fruit and raisins in the bag. and i said, the white house's going to get egged. >> right. >> we need to -- >> you have to go. >> reporter: much of the president's west coast swing has been devoted to shaking the money tree for his re-election campaign. at the bellagio in las vegas. tinseltown fund-raisers, hosted by will and jada pinkett smith. and with some of the powerful people in the industry, the president asked for hollywood help getting him re-elected. last night, he also made certain to have a few laughs. >> have you been watching the gop debate.
7:07 am
>> i'm going to wait until everybody's voted off the island. >> i know you quit smoking. >> i did. i did. [ cheers and applause ] >> that's out. >> that's out. >> remember, you're under oath. >> i am. >> reporter: while the president says he's quit, the campaign of republican presidential candidate, herman cain, is featuring smoking in a campaign ad. showing cain's chief of staff taking a puff. >> the country has never seen a candidate like herman cain. and they've never seen a campaign like the one he's running. >> reporter: with little campaign infrastructure, cain is almost defying gravity. in the latest campaign poll, cain takes a firm lead over mitt romney. among tea party supporters, the gap is much greater. he continued his message at a tea party event last night, as his bus tour rolled into texas. >> the thing about rising to the top of the polls is that you get shot at a lot. but pain never felt so good.
7:08 am
>> reporter: before president obama leaves denver, george, he'll give a speech in which he talks about relieving the burden on low-income college students who have taken out student loans. it's part of his series of executive action steps he can take to help people in this economic crisis when congress is not moving on his jobs bill. george? >> jake, thanks very much. going to move on to new developments, brand-new developments, breaking this morning, in the case of missing 11-month-old baby, lisa irwin. "gma" has learned that the police will be interviewing two key witnesses. matt gutman is live in kansas city with the latest. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. those two key witnesses are baby lisa's brothers. police did speak to them the night after she disappeared. but believe they have more to tell them. you see, they were sleeping, apparently, with baby lisa's mom, in the bed that night. but since then, baby lisa's parents have denied all police requests to see them. until now.
7:09 am
♪ >> reporter: after refusing police requests for weeks, attorneys for baby lisa's parents, deborah bradley and jeremy irwin, tell "gma" exclusively, that they will finally allow their two sons, who were in the house the night that lisa vanished, to be interviewed by authorities on friday. even dna swabs will be taken. bradley was allegedly sleeping in the same bed with the two boys, ages 6 and 8, when her daughter disappeared on october 3rd. that's not enough, say police, who continue to maintain that the couple is not cooperating. that, in stark contrast with what family attorney, joe tacopina told george on monday. >> are you saying, the police say we want to talk to the couple today, no questions off the table, your clients will say yes? >> absolutely. as long as the investigators doing the questioning are ones who have not previously
7:10 am
determined guilt before being vetted. >> reporter: "gma" has learned that police, along with the fbi, have cleared nearly 800 tips and sightings so far, and spoken to 300 neighbors. but they keep coming back here, to the house on north lister avenue. police say the couple has refused to meet separately with detectives to answer tough questions and recount their versions of what happened yet again. police say they have spoken to the couple over the phone. but that they believe lisa's parents still have the answers to questions that could help find her. >> the fact they haven't been arrested yet tells me they haven't found anything compelling to bring a case. so, that just reinforces my feeling that this is something from outside the home. >> thanks to matt gutman in kansas city. let's bring in our "gma" legal analyst, dan abrams. the two boys going to be interviewed. what can authorities learn from that? >> they're going to be interviewed by authorities, which is significant. this has been a big source of contention now for weeks.
7:11 am
they were in the house at the time -- yeah. but they were still in the house. so, whatever happened, be it an intruder or something in the house, they're relevant witnesses. you have to be careful when questioning kids. you have to treat them as children. you have to be very careful the way you talk to them. >> the testimony can't be used against the parents, right? >> it could. it could. it depends on exactly what's said. but, yeah. it could be. >> meanwhile, you have a real clash between the family and the police. joe tacopina told me yesterday, they're willing to answer questions. but under real strict restrictions. >> you asked them twice in the interview, are they willing to answer any questions that the authorities want them to? yeah, they're willing to answer any questions, as long as they're fair and as long as they're by people that haven't determined guilt. yes, they'll answer questions as long as the defense gets to approve those questions. real tension here because on the one hand, the police are clearly
7:12 am
treating them as possible suspects. and that means that joe tacopina and his defense team, has to treat them as potential suspects. but this is their child who is missing. and people are going to hear that and say, i don't care what your lawyer is telling you, you have to help them in every way that you can. >> and the police insisting that they believe the answers they get from the parents, interviewing them separately, are the key to the case. >> that's right. but remember, anytime you get in a battle in a case like this, with the authorities, that's the parents of a missing child, they're going to lose in the court of public opinion. the question is, are there issues that the defense really needs to protect them on here? and that's the real tension. >> meanwhile, we focus on the eyewitnesses that saw a man in the middle of the night carrying a baby. we have to believe that the police have run this down. >> they have. and now one of the witnesses saying that the person who they think could be that person, some of the other witnesses saying, that couldn't have been the person i saw. now, you're seeing inconsistencies in the accounts
7:13 am
of the eyewitnesses who saw what we thought was a similar appearing person. >> a lot of focus inside that house. dan abrams, thanks very much. robin? just in time for flu season, there's a major study that says flu vaccines are less effective than previously thought. there are major implications for those most at risk, especially the elderly. how well prepared are we for a flu pandemic? let's bring in health and medical editor, dr. richard besser, in on this. get your flu shot. get the vaccine. now, what do we do? >> this is a big study that comes from a top group at the university of minnesota. what they did was combine all of the flu studies that have been done over the past 44 years to say how well does this vaccine work? i think people will be surprised because it doesn't work as well as we'd like. the flu shot is only 59% effective in adults 18 to 65. the flu mist vaccine, the one we give to a lot of children, does
7:14 am
better. 83% effective in children 7 and under. but in the elderly, the group we're most concerned about, the data isn't good enough to say how well it works. >> what if you're over 70. >> they didn't have the data. but you can get it up to the age 49. >> why aren't the vaccines more effe effective? >> there's a couple reasons. every year, the flu vaccine changes. and they have to guess what that will be. some years they guess well. and it works well. but other years, not so well. other vaccines are very effective. meals are 99% effective. they need a new approach to developing a flu vaccine. >> do you still recommend getting a flu shot? >> i do. and here's why. each year, the cdc estimates that somewhere between 3,000 and 49,000 die from the flu. while it isn't the best vaccine,
7:15 am
it's a good one. and everyone should get it. >> anybody that shouldn't get it? >> people with medical conditions are at most risk. get your flu shot. hopefully in the future there will be a better one. >> thank you very much. we turn, now, to big trouble for netflix. the company that runs like a locket by bringing movies straight to our homes. now, customers are jumping ship. the stock is in freefall. and some are wondering if the company can survive, thanks to a couple of terrible decisions. abc's bianna golodryga has been following this story. >> reporter: $12 billion lost. 800,000 customers gone. and a stock price that's gone to a seven-year low. >> sometimes the thing that makes you great, your speed, can trip you up. >> reporter: netflix, the company whose red envelopes had a meteoric stock rise came
7:16 am
crashing down after a report before. wall street's version of "the terminator." the treble began last month, after the company blind sided customers with the announcement that not only prices would be going up, but the company would be breaking up. netflix planning to spin off on the dvd by mail service, focusing in video downloads and video viewing. the move proved to be a disaster. >> if it ain't broke, don't fix it is a great thing for companies to understand. >> reporter: within days, the company's ceo acknowledged he had made a mistake. >> i want to say how sorry i am. >> reporter: netflix isn't alone when it comes to blockbuster blunders. coke's attempt to roll out a new formula in 1985, quickly proved to be a disaster. and jetblue's mess in 2007, left thousands of passengers stuck on grounded planes for hours. >> netflix is in a problem where they don't have leadership. consumers, investors, the
7:17 am
marketplace, doesn't know what the netflix brand stands for today. >> i'll be back. >> reporter: well, that's the question that remains for netflix. and analysts are equally concerned about the company's future forecast. subscribers will likely continue to decline. there are analysts who say this is a buying opportunity for the stock. quite a reversal of fortune. >> $3.19 to $76. let's get to sam and rina. >> we showed you at the top of the show the pictures from space. this is the 3d view. and look at it tightening up. in the circle of concern this morning. the next two days, rina will be spent between a 2 and a 3 category hurricane. close to cancun. watch this area of high pressure drop down. there's a very powerful cold front, likely to catch rina and hook it off towards cuba. just under the keys and under
7:18 am
miami. putting it right around here saturday into sunday. rough weather for south florida. but maybe not a direct hit from whatever is left of rina at that point. we need to watch the storm moment by moment. and here's the cold front that's supposed to knock rina out into the atlantic. it brings dallas down 20 degrees. atlanta down 20 degrees. it is a powerful cold front. a good deal of sunshine hoursh the early morning front approaches

7:20 am
not there waiting for her. >> you got off the bus. and your mom wasn't there? >> she's gone. and i miss her so much. >> reporter: after three hours home alone, amelia decided to go look for her mom, by taking a drive in the family's car. and while she couldn't reach the pedals, she did manage to shift it into reverse, before getting stuck on her neighbor's lawn. >> my mom's car backed out on accident. and i need the police to pull my mom's car back in. >> where is your mom at? is she in the car? >> no. i don't know where she is. and i'm lost. >> reporter: ameleah didn't know it. but her mo mom had been taken to the hospital earlier in the day. and the father never got the call to pick her up. even all alone, she remained unfazed. >> i am very proud of you ameleha. >> i have to get there quick. >> oh.

i've been so looking forward to this. when my asthma symptoms returned, my doctor prescribed dulera to help prevent them. [ male announcer ] dulera is for patients 12 and older whose asthma is not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. dulera will not replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. dulera helps significantly improve lung function. this was shown over a 6 month clinical study. dulera contains formoterol, which increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. dulera is not for people whose asthma is well controlled with a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled your doctor will decide if you can stop dulera and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take dulera more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse.

joplin, missouri right now. the first time live on television, they're going to move that bus. that is coming up in just a bit. let's get to the latest on the conrad murray trial. as we mentioned, it was an emotional day in court for jackson's former nurse, who broke down in tears on the stand. the defense team for dr. murray is getting pretty frustrated with the judge. jim avila is live in los angeles with exclusive, new details. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, george. as you say, abc news has learned that from a source close to the case, that the defense is getting frustrated with the judge because they believe that he let the jury hear the entire story of michael jackson's desperate finances, including details of hundreds of millions of dollars of debt, that was detailed in jermaine jackson's books, making it for a difficult day for conrad murray in front
7:32 am
of the judge. >> i feel dizzy. >> reporter: from the beginning, a stressful day. just the stress of getting to court. >> i would appreciate it very much. >> reporter: when able to continue, michael jackson's holistic nutritionist, cherilyn lee, who told her story on "good morning america" -- >> find me an anesthesiologi anesthesiologist -- >> reporter: painted the picture of a man who couldn't sleep. >> the only thing that can do that is diprivan. >> reporter: that's the brand name for propofol. but after investigating, immediately told jackson stay away. you may never wake up. >> he said, no. i will be safe if it was monitored. as listening as i'm being monitored. >> reporter: a story that brought her to tears for a second time, when recalling her last conversation with michael jackson. >> and he responded, i will be
7:33 am
okay. i only need someone to monitor me, with the equipment, while i sleep. >> yes, that's what he said. >> reporter: the defense moved to their other main thesis, that michael jackson was desperate because he needed the money he would make from the this is it tour, and worried he would not fulfill his contract because of sleep issues. >> greatest star in contemporary music. >> reporter: but his tour promoter, brandon phillips, was not as helpful as the defense may have hoped. hoping the money from the impending 50-show tour would allow him to settle down. >> he was tired of living like that. and it was emotional. and i cried. >> did he cry? >> yes. >> reporter: and contradicting the defense premise, that jackson had reason to worry the tour would be canceled. >> no one on our end was contemplating pulling the plug. >> reporter: today, the defense hopes to present a string of
7:34 am
character witnesses, flown in from las vegas and houston, where conrad murray practiced medicine. and tomorrow, end its case with two medical experts. george? >> jim, thanks very much. for more on this, we're joined by defense attorney, jose baez. you may remember he successfully defended casey anthony from murder charges earlier this year. you are sympathetic for the frustration that the defense has, by not putting the financial information into the record. >> i think it's devastating. they're cutting off half of the defense here. if the shoe were on the other foot and money was the motive for murder, you can rest assured that evidence would come in. as it relates to the area of discretion, i think the judge is crossing the line here. >> the defense has a very tricky job right here. in order to defend conrad murray, in some respects, they have to attack michael jackson. >> i think you can't have one without the other. michael jackson is partially on trial here. and in order to show and paint the entire picture for the
7:35 am
defense, you're going to have to show -- when you think of michael jackson, you think of things -- you think of an individual who was an accident waiting to happen. and guess what? it happened. >> here's what i don't understand, for example, how the nurse has to defend. on the other hand, it shows that everybody tried to get propofol. and on the other hand, you have others saying i'm not going to give it to him. >> what the defense is showing here, is he knows what propofol is. not every person walking on the street knows what propofol is. he knows how it's administered. he would need to be monitored. he knows quite a bit for a layperson. >> they are trying to lay the ground he would do anything to get it. he might have gotten it. >> and he was addicted. >> and knew how to give it to himself. that's what they're trying. would that be your strategy right here? >> i think it's a smart strategy. but you also have to bring in all of the doctors. you have to bring in and show how much and how often michael
7:36 am
jackson took drugs, prescription drugs. it's an all-too common hollywood story, where you have an incredibly talented individual going far too soon because of drugs. >> they're going to put on their big gun, the anesthesiologist, paul white, who will take on the prosecution's expert witness. who has the better hand here? >> it's going to be tough to tell until dr. white testifies. you have -- an individual, shafer, who was very impressionable at times. but at certain times, went a little overboard. >> the state's witness. >> yes. he was a persuasive witness at times. but also looked like he had a vested interest. what you're seeing with the defense is, is independent witnesses. people not really associated with conrad murray. more so with michael jackson. and the defense is having an opportunity to say we want to bring the rest of the picture to you. >> you heard jim's reporting
7:37 am
right there. right now, the defense not planning to put conrad murray on the stand. >> you can't put too much stock in that. that decision will be made. it's a game-time decision. it will be made at a later date. he could very well testify. an it would be a bit of a red herring. >> would you put him up? >> i would have to be at that point in the case to make that decision. it's too early to make that decision right now. >> jose baez, thank you very much. to sam and the weather. >> and here's the first punch of fall. we'll show you the tower cam in the denver area. the windchill was taken was about 22 degrees. and the blowing snow visibility is about three-quarters of a mile. denver gets three to six inches. but finally ends up six to ten inches of snow. bigger totals the foothills here, going to about two feet of snow. that's not the only place. watch that system zip across the country. by thursday, there's likely some snow in the higher elevations in new england. we're talking about the
