7:03 am
>> we have this cool experiment. we're going to try to show you the best way to get home for the holiday. we'd like to call it the ultimate guide to beating traffic or not. >> we are going to begin with that chicago police officer charged with murdering a teenager firing 16 shots in 15 seconds. protesters filled the streets shutting down traffic after dash cam video and the victim's family pleaded for calm. alex perez is on the scene in chicago. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning. investigators say that officer opened fire seconds after he got on the scene. that video only made public now because a judge ordered it be released. this morning, newly released dash cam video giving us a closer look at the chilling moment chicago police officer jason van dyke emptied his 9 millimeter gun on 17-year-old laquan mcdonald. we will freeze the video here. mcdonald died on his way to the hospital.

7:06 am
in danger but would a reasonable way? of course, the challenge here is going to be because he didn't have a gun, it turns out and most importantly the distance he was from the officer, there's no indication that he's running towards the officer, et cetera. you listen to the defense attorney and he keeps saying again and again this did not a murder case, which to me says this is the defense attorney who included. >> lesser charge and how much difference does it make the boy did not have a gun as you said but he was not unarmed had that 1345u8 knife. >> critical because of the distance between them meaning if he had a gun there could always be the threat of a shot. as it turns out he had the knife in his hand without moving towards him, tough, tough defense. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. >> such distance between -- >> crucial point. >> extreme outrage but, again, the teen's family is urging protesters -- >> they didn't even want the video released. >> thank you, dan. now to the holiday travel rush threatening to make the trip home a mess for millions of

8:19 am
look at these huge waves that were crashing up onto the shore. the king tide plus that windstorm moving through and now that storm going to meet up with the remnants of what is right now hurricane sandra. all that moisture pooling up up and from parts of illinois back through texas on flash flood watch. some of the rain totals locally in parts of oklahoma or texas could go upwa kevin: a lot of sunshine for us and excellent travel up and down the northeast. our next system does not arrive until sometime later on friday evening. that sets up what should be a great pattern with credible warming temperatures as the haislip' s offshore with a southerly breeze -- the high slips offshore with a southerly breeze. cooler air works its way into the weekend, but mainly fair skies. >> it is so quiet down here without y'all. we got to get back upstairs with the party.
8:20 am
>> get up here with your mirror ball, please, ginger. we're going to start "pop news" with a check in on our "gma" we're trying to help you find the best way to get out of dodge for the holidays. what system works best? we have three teams leave fairfield, connecticut, about an hour ago using different navigation method bs. sara old school with a map and t.j. used waze and rob marciano used the sort of gps system that comes in your rental car which is not an app and doesn't update you with different routes so as i understand it, sara is beating with the map, good old old-school map. sara in first, t.j. second. poor rob with the gps. we need to check in with him. i understand you had to make a little pit stop. >> yeah, that would be nice but we're in last place so that's not going to happen. our gps took us to i-95, never a good idea when you have the choice to take the merit. and now wants to take us to the
8:21 am
east side of manhattan and drive crosstown during rush hour. we're never going to get there at this rate. i think maybe the hard core map would have been the best way to go, guys. >> sometimes the classics. >> right up here and knowing what's busy at what time. >> it doesn't surprise me what happened to rob. i'm telling you the gps in the car always does that. >> creates great discussion. listen to the gps. no. >> but i thought waze would be the one because i've gotten great success with ha. >> waze usually works best for me. >> sometimes they take you on these crazy routes to divert a little bit. >> t.j. has that and sara has good old common sense looking at her map and seeing the most direct route and it's working. so, consider the source. we'll check back in with them and find out if rob ever gets here and continue with "pop news" and queen elizabeth is turning 90 years old. this coming april. and you're invited to the party, people. 25,000 of us at least can go, hobnob with harry and the other royals at the four-day royal

8:23 am
>> we have children in the audience. >> a real item. come in boxers and briefed designed to embed the smell of breakfast in your pant, the scent will last through multiple wash cycles. the underwear does come with a unique warning and, guy, this is not a joke, the makers advise the garment is not recommended for use by mail carrier, zookeepers or lion tamers. i just would like to say before you all send me your messages and get mad guess where i found this story? george. >> i got the e-mail yesterday. i didn't think she'd put it on the air. >> george said, would you want this for "pop news." would i ever? >> now we know. >> thank you, george. >> you're welcome, america. where will the party be on black friday morning? friday, pitbull ignites the
8:24 am
>> now from wmur news 9 -- erin: good morning to you. we are learning new details about a multi car crash in manchester. two people were injured when for cars collided during yesterday' s evening commute. one of the victims was in fair condition and the other in serious condition at last check. a judge has decided that a terminally ill woman is allowed to get her medical marijuana id card. linda horan sued the commissioner of health and human services to get that card so she could legally obtain medical marijuana in the state of maine.
8:25 am
cards until new hampshire' s dispensaries were open, but the judge said the law requires that the id cards be issued once the dispensaries are designated. kevin: what a difference a year makes. last year, snow on the doorstep at this time. this year, but nothing -- nothing but fair skies. a front may have a few showers with it for later friday evening. the can be mixed showers early saturday morning in northerly spots. we continue to warm after dropping below zero atop mount washington yesterday morning. high temperatures from the upper 30' s to mid 40' s. it continues on. we are going to jump into the low and mid 50' s tomorrow. 50' s statewide, even approaching
