decisions wh w tickets and speeding cams are written without proof. joe madison is city official has compared d.c. to the irs where drivers areum to be guilty until proven innocent. does this reinforce the perception at d.c. it's all about money or is this about dysfunction? >> i think it's about revenue. it's about gaining revenue. the purpose of traffic is for safety, traff cameras. the purpose for parking meter is for businesses. you want to move people in and out. but here is what i think has happened. this has become a revenue generating process for the city. it's not absa as much as it is about revenue. it's not about moving parking -- parked cars so that commerce can get customers in and out. it's about revenue. >> dave mcconnell, do you agree with that?
>> a lot of people seem to think that's true. but the people who defend it, especially in d.c. say look at the statistics, where we have cameras, cri i down, the bad traffic situations go down. people behave better when they know they're on camera so we're going to do it. >> michael polk, council member mary chase proposing revamping the ticketing process and forming a new parking enforcement agency. what do you think about that? >> when she issued that proposal, it sort of landed with a thud. the mayor said he wasn't behind it, didn't have a lot of support. this report actually might end up changing some of the momentum there. we've seen part of that report talks about the fragmentation and how thes tickets are issued. the police issue some. the department of public works issues some, the department of transportatn issu some. that was one of the key proposals that she had in her suite of potential changes. there's another about appealing
them. what if you get a ticket you shouldn't ha gotten because the red light camera screwed it up or the person writing the ticket screwed up. i think it's possible this inspector generert could give new light to the proposal. >> the man who drove her pleaded guilty, mark long drove gray and served as his director of advanced opa he's ait driving gray to secret meetgs with jeffrey thompson who pleaded guilty. he reportedly handled phone calls and secret cash deliveries from thompson to gray. dave mcdonnl,u inth plea deal ucl to the end of the skanldal? >> jeffrey thompson keeps singing, and everybody keeps getting closer and closer to the mayor. a lot of pele think they've
taken an awfully long time. the net is increasing. they're getng more and more people. you have to figure the big strike is a short time away. >> how do you read it, joe? >> i read that this individual again probab is telling the truth. he certainly had to be vetted carefully. of course, he better not be caught lying to this district attorney. and i think, quite honestly, that the news is tightening around the mayor's neck. >> michael, do you think that after vincengv office we'll see this move? >> that's certainly one possibility this is the sixth person that has now become a felon as a result of this 2010 campaign. so jeffrey thompson has already pleaded guilty and with that plea deal came this bombshell according to jeffrey thompson, that the mayor knew about the
campaign. it ses th the prosecutors are moving closer and closer to the mayor. one scenario that could play out is something similar to what happened in virginia with governor mcdonnell is the prosecutorsig wait until he's no longer in office. prince george's county deputy caht on camera. news 4 obtained surveillance video inside the county jail that captured a sheriff's dut hit and dragging the handcuffed teen. the attack haen in february. now we see the video taken. the video shows 17-year-old luther spriggs being pro processed. heppent exchanged words the deputy and then was dragged across the floor and into a room where somethinhappened. michael, wh's your assessment of this video and this case? what's hamg at the jail? >> that video was very difficult to watch. we saw it here on nbc4. it shows that this handcuffed
teenager was beaten. he was dragged across the floor. it's difficult to watch. what we've seen at this particular jai is there have been other cases of allegations of misconduct at the jail. those cases did not have video. there's alr a civil suit in this. i would expect this piece of video to be exhib a in that civil suit. >> dave? >> what of the first assignments i had decades ago was to cover police brutality in prince george's coty it was bad. they promised to do a lot of things to change it, put more african-amec on the police force, have sessions with members, sensitivity sessions, all that kind of thing. they were really hurt by it. now you have to wonder is this one incident? is there more than this? how widespread a problem is this? >> joe? >> i don't know it makes that much differenc quite candidly.
i think it's a culture. when you take into consideration what's been happening in ferguson, w said over and over, particularly on our show, that there's fergusons all over this country. there have been 13 young people killed since michael brown was killed in ferguson, in one month. 13 killed b poli officers. this is aggressive police behavior, and i would imagine, again, you're absolutely right, michael. thisoes on all the time. it just doesn't get caught on video. >> got to a break.
in seventh grade. kindergarteha to get chickenpox. monomy county has been holding vaccination clinics -- held a clinic all week and prince geor h clinic yesterday. a lotf ds b of classes bec t haven't gotten thei shots. do you think it's parental problem? did the st the counties, not do a good job of getting the word out? >> i think a combination of both. there shou ha been, i would think, a lot of public service announcementa summer long, quite honestly. and yes, i think it's a parental problem. especially en you're in seventh grade. we kind of have this disconnect. as my grandmother started to say, starting to smell yourself. you're starting to be mannish. you want to beennt here is th bigger issue with
me. that is, these are very serious health issues that could be epidemic in nature. this is not something i would take lightly. if parentsre listening, they really need t serious about this. >> that's what the health officials in maryland are saying, is that these immunizations are critical because there have been recent outbreaks of like the whooping cough, for example. a recent outbreak of the whooping cough maryland. so they feel like these immunizations are very important. even if 2,000, 3,000 students don't have e immunizations on the first day of school, there might be some delay, that's worth it to make sure that you have a healthy environment for the schools. >> it can be pretty disruptive, dave. that's a lot of kids. >> gechbs the background of this, there's another back story. i'm not sure it's happening in our jurisdiction, in our region, but i believe in new york state, new york cite other places, i believe, parents have backed off. there's a backlash against vaccinations a inoculations, a
real concern from parents where they're getting the information from. medical peopl say the people who advocate this are off the wall on it. yet other people who have some standing in the medical community have voiced concerns. so you've g another continue very zee going on in that. >> you'rebs right. we get calls all the time where people simp don't believe in the vaccination. they say it causes more harm. they're very sou if you talk to pediatricians they'll tell you for the most part you have to do it. assessing the virginia senate race. a new poll shows democrat mark warner dominating the race against the n who would like to replace it, ed gillespie. the poll gives warner a 53% lead over gillespie at 31%. michael pope, with less than two months to go before the general
election, g li s a little grou make up? >> he has a lot of ground make up. what this shows is people don't know ed gel liss spee is. if you look at republican support for ed gillespie, it's only at 80%. right there is an indication according to the folks at the poll that even republicans don't really know who ed gillespie is. 60% of voters that they polle said theyt enough about ed gillespie to decide whether or n t wanted to support him. >> he's very well known inside political circles. >> he was wi dick army when the republica first took over the congress years ago, he was a mover d shaker behind the scenes. he's a back room boy. that is believed to be his problem. he hasn't been out in the political situation. i think somewhere along the line, people warner is talking moran autow
he hates th senate. maybe he won run. there's an incumbent thing going on. let's raise funds which ed gillespie is good at, see what they can dto warner. >> mark warner has a tremendous social media campaign going, also. there's hardly a day that goes by you don't get a message from him, fund-raising message. number two, i also think that they're not taking this for granted. he's campaigning. mark warner is campaigning. and he knows that we just had a very interesting situation in virginia with a very popular congressman. >> eric cantor. >> eric cantor. i think lesson learned there. here is the thing, it's turnout. democrats and independents cannot be comfortable think they're so far ahead in the polls. >> any final thoughts about what's next r virginia after
the corruption conviction of the former governor and his wife, michael? >> well, what's next on the horizon is an appeal. the governor's lawyers have already announced their intention to appeal. it's likely that any appeal would focus on the jury instructions. judges, as a general rule, do not like to overturn juries. so the focusing an appeal on the jury instructions which is holy in the junl's purview would be a likely avenue for appeal. there's ano int thing on the horizon, too, which is sentencing. the mcdonnells will be sentenced in january. you have to imagine this is going to be a very difficult holiday season. >> he was prosecuted under federal law, but virginia's ethics laws are very lax. >> i think they will tighten up the ethics law. this was a very shocking, demoralizing unhappy episode in virginia politics. everybody like the governor and his wife. even though they all agree he
did wrong, they're not happy about it. i think there will be changes. you also have to wonder if prosecutors al the country look at that verdict from the judge's instructions and say, hey, i can think of a few other people that bonll profile here. what used to be bids as urinal in the governor's house and doing non--illegal things now may become illegal. >> final word, joe. >> jail. >> long time? 30 years? >> i don't know if it would be 30 years. but in one word, jail, for both of them. >> thanks, gentlemen. thank you. that's reporter's notebook. i'm pat laws muse. stay with us "news ynu a live look outside our studios here in northwe washington. take a look.

"meet the press" moderator chuck todd joins us with more on this. chuck, we'r learning of a british man beheaded by isis. does this help the case of getting intertial support? >> you would hope so. this is certainly what's happened he and you hate to put it in those terms that
somehow the beheadings help. but it's gavel nized the country. th dohi me that the brits will now come in with more help, more milita help? it isn't the british that the u.s. is counting on. they need a middle eastern -- has not come to fruition. we have seen all those country, they will help in some form or another. but none of them have talked about the tough stuff, including combat troops. >> it's serious. the president laying out a plan about air strikes that would potentiallyo into syria. that opens another can of worms. what's the public support been like for that? >> for now the public is about getting isis. they don't like when americans get killed. that's why they're going and saying do whatever it takes to get them.
the question will the public have the patience? this is going to take a long time. this is not going to be the type of attack -- the president compared it what's going on in yemen and pakistan. the country didn't see that. syria is a whole different story. we're going b seeing this. there's going to be a lot more attention to the fight that's taking placin syria. the question is going to be whether the public has that patience. >> let's talk about hillary clinton today. she's in iowa for the first time since losing that state's caucus in 2008. is this a move toward a run in 2016? >> you don't go to iowa for any reason other than running for president if you're an elected official. she's clearly wanting to make it clear, i'm running. she'll make official at the start of the year. iowa is a quirky state. this is a state that is very much home to a lot of populist
mentalitieshe it comes to the economy. on both of those issues, hillary clinton is out of step of where the grassroots of the iowa democratic party is. that's why she didn't win eight years ago. the questi is are they so enamored with electing the first woman president, they'll overlook the idea she's a little too wall street. i think she'll find out a little more on that vis sit they think that, hey, there is no other barack obama th time. barack obamaas a once-in-a-let challenger, and i think they think they can run the same race they ran eight years ago and win this time because they' not going to have somebody of barack obama's charisma. >> alright, chuck. thank you. you can see "meet the press" every sunday oft "ws 4 today today new jersey governor chris christie will be in

representatio congss as the rest of the country. however, opponents say the country's founders did not intend to make the nation's capital a state. when most of us think about summer camps for our childhood, we remember hiking trails, roasting marshmallows, those kind of things. more and more kids are taking camping to the extreme, talking zip lining, dirt biking and stunt training. nbc's jacob rascon has more on the growing trend inspiring kids to enjoy the great outdoors. >> reporter: when the kids arrive, it all seems traditional enough, breakfast, bunk beds, beautiful scenery. but after roll call -- [ screaming ] >> -- they quickly realize this isn't their father's camp. in southern california, paint balling is the new nap time, zip lining the new hiking and hollywood st training the new
