7:02 am
showing police officers shooting a man outside a convenience store. abc's ryan smith is here with the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning. those protests lasting well into the night. so many registering their outrage over the shooting death of alton sterling and the shocking video of it all caught on cell phone. overnight protests growing louder in baton rouge after the police shooting death of alton sterling, a man reportedly selling cds outside of a louisiana convenience store tuesday. >> on the corner, gun in his pocket. he pulled a gun on a complainant and told him he couldn't be around there. >> reporter: according to police two officers were responding to an anonymous report of a man with a gun. the fatal confrontation between the 37-year-old sterling and police officers captured in this cell phone video. >> on the ground. get on the ground. >> reporter: in the video two officers appear to struggle with
7:03 am
the man, tasing him and slamming him to the ground. one officer seems to yell gun. and then shots are fired. >> oh, my god. >> they shot him? >> yes. >> oh, my goodness. >> they killed this boy. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: sterling died at the scene from multiple gunshot wounds to his chest and back. the police department placing the two officers on leave while they investigate. the store owner says he was standing two or three feet away at the time of the shooting. he says sterling a regular at the store is a father of young children. >> he was a nice guy. he wasn't out here doing anything bad. he was always just selling movies, minding his own business. >> reporter: public outrage growing quickly. over 200 people protesting in baton rouge. on twitter #altonsterling and so
7:04 am
many around the country searching for answers including sterling's sister. >> i really want to know more about what happened because my brother didn't deserve it. he didn't deserve it at all. >> reporter: the police investigation is ongoing. now, there are reports that both officers' body cameras fell off during the frustrating and there may not be much police video. they claim it does exist and have not released it and expected to g7 a press conference this morning. to that blockbuster decision from the fbi after a year-long investigation james comey decides not to recommend charges against hillary clinton but blasts her for reckless handling of classified information on her private e-mail server. abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas brings us the latest from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. in one of the most dramatic moments of 20 years of covering the fbi, the fbi director took center stage, no one knowing what he decided with the power to affect the outcome of the
7:05 am
2016 presidential election. the decision about the clinton e-mail investigation so sensitive and critical to the presidential race, fbi director james comey kept the white house and his boss, the attorney general in the dark. >> they do not know what i'm about to say. >> reporter: in a dramatic hastily arranged press conference he announced the results of thousands of hours of fbi investigation. >> our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. >> reporter: but despite that recommendation the fbi director gave a blistering assessment of clinton's decision to use private e-mail to conduct government business. >> there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive highly classified information. >> reporter: former secretary clinton has maintained that she never sent or received e-mails that were marked classified but tuesday comey said the investigation found 110 e-mails that contained classified information at the time they were sent and received. and whether they were marked classified when she received them or not comey hammered
7:06 am
clinton for leaving government e-mails vulnerable to enemies. >> any reasonable person in secretary clinton's position or in the position of those with whom she was corresponding about those matters should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation. >> reporter: still, comey said the investigation failed to meet a critical legal standard. according to comey there was no evidence of -- for. >> clearly infenceal and willful mishandling or vast quantity, indications of disloyalty to the united states or efforts obstruct justice. we do net see those things here. >> reporter: bottom line, clinton aides may have been careless but comey could not make the case that their behavior was criminal. >> meantime, pierre, this technically this report from the fbi director is just a recommendation to the justice department but effectively this is over, right. >> reporter: we expect the career prosecutors will agree with comey that charges aren't warranted so the likelihood of a criminal case against her is
7:07 am
effectively over. >> pierre thomas, thanks very much. george, the fbi report getting major reaction on both sides of the aisle as president obama joins hillary clinton on the campaign trail for the first time. abc's cecilia vega is in charlotte, north carolina, with the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. the reactions on this one could not be more different for hillary clinton and her campaign. there is a sense of relief this morning, but for the republicans led by donald trump, they see a rigged system and say hillary clinton lied. just hours after the fbi slammed hillary clinton for her e-mail use she was on air force one with president obama all smiles as they hit the campaign trail in north carolina. >> i am with her. >> all: i'm with her. >> i'm with her. >> reporter: clinton getting a commanding boost of confidence from the commander in chief. >> he knows a thing or two about winning elections. take it from me. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: and it could not have come at a better time.
7:08 am
>> i'm ready to pass the baton. [ cheers and applause ] and i know that hillary clinton is going to take it. and i know she can run that race. >> reporter: two former rivals now a united front. >> everybody can tweet but nobody actually knows what it take s to do the job until you sit behind the desk. >> reporter: no mention of that fbi investigation. clinton's team saying in a statement we are glad this matter is resolved and that it was a mistake to use her personal e-mail and she would not do it again but her opponents not about to let it go from house speaker paul ryan. >> this certainly does underscore that she believes she's above the law. >> reporter: to donald trump holding his own rival north carolina rally. >> we now know that she lied to the country when she said she did not send classified information on her server.
7:09 am
she lied. >> reporter: going after clinton and the system. >> today is the best evidence ever that we've seen that our system is absolutely totally rigged. it's rigged. >> reporter: and sources tell me this fbi news came as a complete surprise to the clinton campaign that they watched it unfold on television along with everyone else. we're also told that the president and hillary clinton did not discuss the fbi investigation during that air force one ride here to north carolina, george. we're told they talked about grandchildren. >> very deliberately no doubt. thanks very much. more on the law and politics with our chief legal analyst dan abrams and our political analyst matthew dowd and let's begin with the law, dan, that standard that the fbi director said, no reasonable prosecutor would bring charges. he seems to be suggesting legally this wasn't a close call. >> so on the one hand i think for a long time the clinton supporters have been minimizing the significance of what happened here and i think james
7:10 am
comey made that quite clear in laying out a sort of moral indictment. >> scathing. >> of hillary clinton. she broke rules. she violated norms. but that is not necessarily criminal. and then he laid out at the end the criminal standard. we're talking about espionage law here. people are saying, well, gross negligence. that's the espionage act and basically what james comey is saying is you want to prosecute someone under this misdemeanor or this felony of the espionage act, you need a level of intentional willful conduct that simply didn't exist here. >> matthew dowd, politically this was tough stuff from james comey and seems to hit secretary clinton on three front, competence, protecting national security and the big one, honesty which is what you've already got the rnc putting out videos this morning hitting the five big lies they say james comey exposed. >> well, i think it's really tough stuff. she survived a potential fatal
7:11 am
blow which means she still stays in the race but was basically told by the fbi director she's not guilty of a crime but she's not innocent of wrongdoing and to me it reminds me a lot of tom brady the he survives to play the game still but his reputation has been sullied. in this case it's almost the best of circumstances for the gop and the rnc which means she continues to run. she doesn't suffer a fatal blow in the course of this so nobody else is substituted in the race but she is damaged, i think, by what the fbi director did. >> what about you hear a lot of clinton allies suggesting that five months from now on election day, the only thing people will remember is that she wasn't charged. >> i don't agree with that. i think what it is, it adds to the story on the story is can we trust hillary clinton in the course of this? i think she's still favored i think to win the race and still favored after this to win the race but she is damaged in this and that will survive. >> you've got the suggestion from the speaker of the house,
7:12 am
paul ryan that she shouldn't get these intelligence briefings over the rest of the campaign. >> as a practical matter won't happen. not practical and i think we'll expect to see this move now into the political realm out of the league. >> thanks very much. back to robin. >> now to a big headline overseas. the vatican saying pope francis has met with the parents of that american college student whose body was found in rome's tiber river. abc's lama hasan is in rome now with those details. good morning, lama. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. yes, it was a remarkable moment overnight. pope francis holding a private meeting at the vatican with both solomon's parents this as we learn new details about the murder investigation right here in rome. this morning, the vatican confirming pope francis had a private meeting with the parents of beau solomon murdered this week while studying abroad in rome. in a statement the pope expressed his deepest sympathy
7:13 am
and compassion and his closeness in prayer to the lord for the young man who died so tragically. right now italian investigators are piecing together the mysterious death of solomon. police arresting a homeless man, massimo galioto, suspected of aggravated homicide after the 19-year-old's body was pulled from this river. the american came this way, she said. one could see he was upset. according to italian tv this woman was living in a tent with the suspect and says she watched the scuffle unfold. [ speaking a foreign language ] "they were pushing each other," she said. the boy pushed back and then it ended badly. solomon was a cancer survivor major in personal finance at the university of wisconsin madison, his life cut short just a day after he arrived for his exchange program at john cabot university. >> so hard to hear about your best friend. didn't really even get a chance to say good-bye to him. >> reporter: well, this morning italian police confirming to abc news massimo galioto, the
7:14 am
homeless man suspected of murdering beau solomon is expected to appear in court later today. george. >> okay, lama, thanks very much. also overseas breaking news in the oscar pistorius case, the olympian sentenced to six years in prison for killing his girlfriend on valentine's day, 2013. abc's alex marquardt is in london with the late et. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning. pistorius has now already been taken to prison directly from that courtroom. this six-year sentence is pretty surprising given that it's less than half of the maximum of 15 years for murder which is what the prosecution had asked for. pistorius was stone-faced as it was handed down, none of the tears we've seen from him throughout the three years in court. the judge said there were substantial and compelling reasons to not give the maximum sentence including his genuine remorse. pistorius might not even serve the full six years. he's able to apply for parole after half his sentence and could be out in three years.
7:15 am
>> alex marquardt, thanks. to amy with the other top stories. >> could be good news. security lines at the airport may be speeding up soon. the tsa will soon test c.t. scanners to inspect carry-on luggage and human screeners won't have to look at screenings of every single bag. they give 3d images and will be tested if phoenix first. well, there is more turmoil in iraq. a top government official has resigned following sunday's bombing that killed 250 people. that is the single deadliest attack claimed by isis worldwide. the interior minister says he is resigning because of a lack of coordination among security forces. and some new safety concerns surround the so-called self-driving cars made by tesla. a driver claims his car was in autopilot mode when it rolled over in pennsylvania friday. you may remember that a driver of a tesla model s on autopilot
7:16 am
was killed in a crash in florida. it uses radar to steer and match speeds. a rare sight off cape cod, a fishing boat captain snapped this photo of a 30-foot killer whale. experts say they cannot recall ever seeing an orca so close to the new england coast. and in sports a clean sweep for the chicago cubs. their entire infield has been selected to tart in next week's all-star game. matching the record held by the 19634 cardinal, a total of seven cubs have been chosen as all-stars this year. finally, well, being honest pays off. someone left $187,000 in cash in the backseat of a boston taxi but veteran cab driver buzzy maccausland said he never considered keeping a dollar of it and turned it over to police and found the owner apparently living in a homeless shelter. just got all that cash from an inheritance. he gave buzzi 100 bucks for his
7:17 am
honesty. you know what he should do with that 100 bucks, play the lottery. >> pushing his luck. >> why not? >> you know what, honesty does pay off. speaking of lotly so does the mega millions climbing to over half a billion dollars and abc's t.j. holmes is joining us from a spot where they sell tickets here in new york city. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: good morning, to you, strahan. i need your help. i need you to tell the "gma" producers do not call and wake me up and get me out of bed for a measly $508 million. i say that because i covered the record jackpot in this country just a few months ago, it was $1.6 billion. so 508, that's just a drop in the lottery bucket. i still got my tickets. it's still the seventh largest. cash payout is 357 million
7:18 am
before taxes. >> before taxes. whi wow. i'll take that. speaking of the prize that was in january. there's still one ticket floating around that hasn't put in their claim. >> oh, strahan, this makes me sick in the stomach and keeps me up at night. three winning tickets sold to that record jackpot. that powerball jackpot. one of those was sole out in california has not been claimed. at this point people suspect that person thinks they might not know it or it might have been thrown away, strahan. >> that would be heartbreaking. that's out in chino hills if you bought one out in chino research and check again. thank you. now over to ginger with some severe weather hitting the heartland. >> yes, happening at this hour. severe thunderstorms in parts of >> i want to show you this individual fro from the statement storm. weren't minnesota tornado 228 severe storm reports. today that area goes right to our west in parts of nebraska

7:32 am
go to trial. michele carter, the massachusetts teenager accused of urging her boyfriend to commit suicide by a text message is now facing up to 20 years in prison. the state's highest court ordering her to stand trial deciding friday to uphold carter's grand jury indictment on a manslaughter charge for the 2014 death of 18-year-old conrad roy. roy died of carbon monoxide poisoning after locking himself inside his truck in this kmart parking lot. at the time prosecutors say he was on the phone with carter for 47 minutes. his girlfriend allegedly convincing him to stay in the truck after he had second thoughts. >> he was scared. she told him to get back in the car. >> reporter: in a series of text messages leading up to roy's death prosecutors say carter was essentially bullying him into suicide texting "you need to stop thinking about this and just do it." and "there is no way you can
7:33 am
fail. tonight is the night. it's now or never." >> when are you going to do it? stop ignoring the question. >> reporter: carter's lawyers argued the then 17-year-old's texts were protected by the first amendment and didn't cause roy to kill himself. saying roy was the one who convinced carter he should commit suicide. >> he has in fact brainwashed her to the point where she's now accepting his idea of this is my only option. >> reporter: but massachusetts supreme judicial court disagreed saying carter engaged in a systemic campaign of coercion that targeted roy's insecurities and that her instruction to get back in his truck in his final moments was the direct causal link to his death. carter's lawyer tells us he is confident his client will be found not guilty. carter is due back in court july 21st. we spoke with conrad roy's mother and says she feels the loss of her son every single day
7:34 am
and wants the case to go forward. >> let's talk about it with sunny hostin. we heard her words were protected by the first amendment but the judge is saying words can kill. >> that words can kill. words can matter. it was a unanimous decision and 23-page decision. everyone should really read this decision. especially parents of teens and this is marked the first time that the court in massachusetts basically said you can be responsible for involuntary manslaughter just by using your words. >> even if you're not there or don't pull the trigger or knife. >> that's right. this court said by using those types of words, get back in the car. you need to do this. do this now she was almost virtually in the car with him goading him. anybody that reads what she texted him what she said to him should be horrified because words matter. >> absolutely and you're making the distinction between what we
7:35 am
see here and bullying, cyberbullying. >> i think it's a bit different. cyberbullying is a federal crime and it's when you intend to harm someone by your words by cyberbullying. this is a bit different. this is encouraging someone to kill themselves and 39 states have laws prohibiting that on the books. massachusetts does not but massachusetts now is saying you can't do this kind of thing and i often say that the law doesn't catch up with technology quickly enough. the law caught up with technology right here right now. >> we'll be watching this case. sunny hostin, thanks very much. >> you're right about parents needing to read that. >> got to. a stunning new report. thousands of doctors accused of sexually abusing patients under their care. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross confronted some of them and is here with more on that. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning. doctors are figures of respect and trust in our society. but a startling new report this morning reveals more than 2,000 american doctors have been implicated in the sexual abuse

they bid on the games they promised that they were going to build all of these new sewage treatment plants. the economy took a turn for the worse and they didn't build them so now we have this situation. the good news if there is any these super bugs only cause problems in people who are chronically ill in the hospital with immune problems but found high levels of a lot of viruss that can cause stomach flu and i can't imagine what's going to happen if they get a stomach bug ripping through the olympic village. >> doesn't sound like a chance you want to take when you hear that. you already have zika concerns and now the nih and u.s. olympic committee teaming up to do a study on this but what do they hope to find in this study? even if they find something what does it change? >> this is an important study. not going to help the olympic athletes during the olympics but looking to enroll a thousand athletes, coaches and others and their sexual partners to see how many people get infebruaried, how long it stays in their body and this could give people
7:43 am
information long term in terms of when is it safe to have children and start their families. >> wow. >> all right. >> every single day as we said just a month or less to go until the olympics. >> thank you. now to that disturbing video showing a man jumping from a moving boat. you can see it right there on to a moose's back and canadian police filing wildlife harassment charges after it was posted online. that doesn't look like the right thing to do. >> come on. >> and now joining us is ron magill, the communications director at the zoo in miami and dr. magill, they tracked these guys down and took them a year and now they face multiple charges under the wildlife ago and how serious is it to do something like this? >> this is very serious. first of all not only putting yourself in danger but you're teaching an animal to lose its natural fear of human beings and
7:44 am
next time might not run away but become aggressive because of a previous experience. abusive and makes me sick. >> i saw you shaking your head. we all were shaking our head and i'm sure at home too. you could see the moose was trying to get away. but we are seeing more of these encounters. there's been a lot of talk about the bison, some bisons have attacked people and the young bison that somebody took and put in their car and had to be put down. they thought they were helping the young bison thought it was injured. what do you make of these new encounters? >> robin, the problem is people have seen more animals in these parts and look at them in parks as if they're props or something and think they're something to play with. don't understand they're wild animals generated by this whole selfie craze. people are out there. i was at everglades national park and this guy is laying down with an alligator behind him and taking a selfie turning his back to the alligator. common sense isn't common anymore and amazed me how stupid
7:45 am
can be. it's a tragedy waiting to happen. these are wild animals. >> you should have seen dr. besser's reaction hearing somebody with the alligator behind him. >> i think ron is on the money, it's just stupid. straight and to the point. >> now to the williams sisters. killing it at wimbledon. venus and serena making it to the semifinals. joining us our good friend, patrick mcenroe, espn tennis commentary. let's look at that shot at the all england club and let's talk, first of all about venus. here she is 36 years old. it's, what, the first time, five or six years made it to the semifinals of a grand slam. she's overcome a serious illness. put all of this, patrick, into context for us. >> i got to tell you, robin and michael, this story is giving me goose bumps with venus williams because she's been through so much and obviously been overshadowed by her great sister serena who is going for number 22 but let's remember, oh, by the way, venus williams has
7:46 am
seven grand slam titles herself. she has five wimbledon titles. she's waited a long time for this opportunity. she said yesterday, robin, after she won her quarterfinal match and said not everybody is serena williams, this is really great for me for venus, she's got a chance to get back to the wimbledon final but has a very tough match in the semis. >> i feel like i grew up watching these two perform against each other quite a bit all the time. we're getting almost like a throwback now, possibly get a chance to watch them in the finals. how realistic is it for these two to make it to the finals? >> well, it would be a shock, michael, if serena doesn't get there. she has been absolutely awesome this year at wimbledon. getting through to the semifinals. she takes on an unlikely semifin semifinals, elena vesnina from russia. angelique kerber is the one who beat her at the australian open, the german is feisty, a lefty,
7:47 am
very, very tough and very good on grass. but if venus can find some of that magic we could have another all-williams sisters with -- at the combined age of 70 years old. they're still getting it done. >> yes and how many people gave richard williams their father a hard time back in the day and here we are 15 years later and look at their daughters and what they're all doing. have some squaw berries and cream and wash it down with some pimm's. >> thank you to patrick and ron and dr. richard besser. >> i'll have a few extra for michael. >> he's trying to say it requires a lot to fill me. we'd like to say thank you to all three panelists and see all the action on wimbledon on espn and streaming live on watch espn and also the espn app. >> don't want to miss it. coming up don't want to miss this, this morning's hot shot, the new spice girls remake getting huge reaction around the globe. >> told me what you want. ♪ what i really, really want

category, right. you have to be an adult. go ahead and cut that. short of giving your kids a sharp knife. >> there's resistance. >> it has a cool sound. very satisfying. >> it is. and role play complex but very real role in kids' development. this was their kickoff launch. very simple wooden puzzles and they took an old stodgy category and added pizazz to it as melissa said and so feel these. this has a kind of touch and feel zoo and texture to it. simple enough. are you having fun with these? >> we haven't heard a peep out of them in totally quiet. and melissa and doug have six children and talk about how they often let them test toys and play with them but these stuffed animals are a classic example. adults look at the body an fur. kids look into the eyes of these toys and they said mom, this one looks grumpy or happy and redesi redesign their stuffed animals. >> this is having a staring
8:46 am
contest. >> i remember my kids playing with these because i thought, wow, these remind me of my childhood and that's the idea. no taggic. >> the whole idea during summertime when the kids want to do what's easy, something that blinks and has laser light shows but instead if you let them sit down with a wooden puzzle and just play that does so much to foster development. >> i want to thank you so much. sometimes simple is better, everybody. and all that coming up, who is hungry? everybody hungry out here ask we have the executive chef of michael jordan's steak house here with crab cakes, pork and a little bit more. stay right there. we'll be back with a little more "gma."
