6:14 am
we are talking about temperatures in the 80s right there. we will have some storms. i think the earlier afternoone thbetter chance to have some dry weather. a few showers mainly west of d.c. could skirt thre a mainly west of i-81 as we continue through the morning. otherwise, a frontal system just to the noh is going to stall out all week, and that's going to enhance our rain chances all week. 9:00 a few showers along the shenandoah valley. a lot of us dry through the early afternoon. that's the time to go outside. after 2, we will start to see some storms rolling in. damaging winds again are going to be the main threat with this, and we will keep a chance of stonms through the afternond even into the evening. a few showers linger overnight through earl tomorrow morning. we do it again tomorrow afternoon with more showers and thunderstorms. again some of those could pack a punch as wellecause we are hot and humid. today, tomorrow a better chance of storms tomorrow, and a chance through tuesday, wsday, thursday. looks like we dry out onri fday.
6:15 am
keep your fingers crossed har t dry on saturday, as well. >> all right. we'll still enjoy today. "reporter's notebook" is next. >> more of the morning's top stories. good morning. i'm t lawson. former university of maryland basketbll player demon tay says he is looking forward tthe future. a jury cleared him on charges associated with an alleged rape of an 18-year-old freshman near the university of maryland in 2017. tracee wkins and news4's cory smith are here this morning. this story involves sex, i alcohol, coca and consent. tell us about the argument on both sides. >> the state said this is a young woman who was so impaired that there was no way that she could have consented to sex, and that she was saying i didn't consent to sex. but when you hear the evening and what hpened and, you know,co
6:16 am
just vering college park, the rapes that we have seen in cothleerare,ge il was alarmed bs young woman's evening was just in terms of her own safety. so it did start with her drinking. she called ite- ming. i she said i was drinking a lot of alcohol at my friend's house. by the tim i got thear i was so intoxicated i didn't remembee the walk to tar. she gets inside the bar, more mixed drinks, does some cocaine inside the barand two hours later spots demon tay dodd who is like seven feet tall. he wafconsidered a celebrity o this basketball team. he was the spokesperson for the university of maryland basketball team. free nder is giving him drinks. he is passing out free drinks to his friends, free drinks to her and then they start dancing together and they leave the bar together and then what she said
6:17 am
is when we got back to the apartment things went too far and, you know, what started out s making out turned into i did not consent to. so there was a very fine line there. there were a lot of things that happened in that happening and a lot of thingsed involvin this, this being halloween night, she was dressed as a playboy noney. an the case law that the judge used was laws protecting prostitutese that had b raped. that's how they set the parameters for this case. at the end of the d the jury decided after two hours of deliberation he was innocent of all charges, he didot rape this young woman. and even his attorney said that he belied that she believed she was the victim of rape which is why she would put rself through this. at the end of the day the law didn't support this. >> you talked to him afterwards. what did he say? >> he is focused on his career and heins hopg to move into the nba.ee he has b playing overseas since graduating from the university of maryland.
6:18 am
he says that this case hasha be ing over his head. he is in between contracts now. when he is talking to teams they google his name, they see ndis, at's been this issue. he had advice r professional athletes or young athletes hoping to move to professional careers. there are plenty in prince george's county. focus on your craft. don't worry aboutthe partying. focus on what you are supposed to be focused on.ve i belie his message was, had he been focused on what he n't have put himselfould in, he the this happen. ve >> both of them? >> both of them made decisions that night that put both of thei in very diflt positions. hopefully, the message will get back to students at the university of maryland. you haveonto be careful both sides to make sure you are taking care of yourself. >> in montgomery county a councilmember says he was racially profiled during a traffic stop. that's what he thought when a state trooper pulled him over
6:19 am
and asked if the car he was driving was his car. sorr iocory, the next quest was, the police officer asked him, do you have any outstanding warrants?q uestions like those raise questions? right. and hear councunthe cocilman t it, he says his training kicked in. just speaking very slowly with the officer making sure that the situation did not escalate. that's why he felt as if there was something more to this stop. he called it a pretextual stop. i am getting pulled over so this officer can perhaps maybe search my car, askother questions that could lead him to have probable cause to search me or to detain me to ask me questions. so he, you know, went along with the st. produced his registtion, his i.d. and went on about his way. he was obviously very bothered bout the situation. maryland state police says it wasn't the case. the questions of is this your vehicle or do you have any
6:20 am
outstanding warrants is standard operating procedure during a traffic stop. so ty also said that, you know, it's part of their department policy that biased-basedn' policing ist tolerated.' a he said/he said. but i think what bothers him thm t is, obviously we know that it's been a rough couple of weeks/months in montgomery county when it comes to police and communities of color. there was a video with an officer speaking of four black men detained outside an mcdonald's. this incident happened a few days after a forum on community policing a trying to improve the tr ot between communitiesf color and the montgomery county police department. so he said, you know, this isre just m reason to continue to push forward to continue to try to bring some reconciliation and to improve things in the county. >> is it a teachable moment? is it a teachable moment on both sides for the police as well as esidents? >> i think, yes.
6:21 am
he certainly sees it as a teachable moment. and not just for police, you know, understanding how stops like these are viewed within the -- f perspective of african-americans, but also for the folks who get pulled over. what he called hining really allowed him to stay calm, to make sure that this didn't escalate to something th could have been much more tragic, much more unfortunate. i think that's the message that he wants to drive home tt, yes, police officers have a job to do. in this day and age with what's been happening in montgomery county recently, offirs have to know and state troopers have ps know that some of these st are viewed with apprehension and some hesitation. and i think as he moves forward he is going to continue to point that out. >> all right. we have to take a break. we'll be right back. stay with us.
6:22 am
6:23 am
setting the record straight. the mayor of a upper marlboroboro has clarified her reason for abruptly announcing plans to resign this past week after an outcry prompted by her claims of racist attacks and bullying on the job. tonga turner says the real reason she is resigning is to spend time with her young children, t because of racism. she announced her resignation soon afteshe talked vividly and very candidly about her experiences during a town hall meeting. she clearly did not eect the outcry that followed? >> yeah. o she sid that in retrospect perhaps she should have separated talking abouthe racism and the bullying and attacks and vandalism and all of that happened versus her stepping down. she said the two subjects arev ery separate. people at the meeting di t't feelat way. they thought that this was why she was stepping down, that at the end of the day it had become too much. she was spat on.
6:24 am
she had her tires slashed. she wasalled the "n" word. she was called some other racist words. and tormented, i know, pretty much during her entire time after she had taken office and had a forr member of that commission sitting in the audience drawingswastikas on a notebook. >> during the cocil meeting? >> during e council meeting, and somekne too pictures. and heckling her trough the meeting. >> this sa woman who is very strong and is seen as great leader and people in upper inrlboro will tell you she has done amazing wor the year and a half she has been in office. he she brought back marlboro day, brought hundre of thousands of dollars to the tow and doing just tremendous work, trying ild an economic development, wanted to expand the boundaries of the town it's the county seat for prince george's county. it's one of the most undeveloped portions of prince george's county. so allf this was happening, and some criticsre saying that
6:25 am
maybe it was too much too soon for some people and that's why it was so difficult for her. at the s end of the dayhe said it has nothing to do with why i decided to ste down. i want to spend more time as a mother and i have a full time career and i took on too much with the city of marlboro. there are still people walking away like, i don't know. but that's what she is saying is happening. >> she movesn. and someone will take her place? >> yeah. the way it's explained to me is the two commissioners left will have to decide who will be the nextmayor. then hey will have to have a special election. >> what about the issue she brought up? >> which is more important than anything, right? a what she said the reas i discussed what's going on with race in the town because i want the next person to know it wasn't all rosy, i had all these issues happening so they could be prepared to deal with it. so that is something that the people in that town are going to havto deal with. some folks who i talked to were saying peopleed eleer into office and abandoned her.
6:26 am
people weren't coming to the meetings to help support and to be involved in what was happening. and so the hope is that whoever comes in next, that the town wi actuallye involved in what's going on in local politics and pay attention to the fact that they have got some of this happening in that town. if they want to move forward they will have to address these serious and difficult esues. >> v serious. upper marlboro is the county seat. >> yes, and a predominant african-american county. >> well, we all know that our first responders areto exposed situations that can often lead to mental health issues, especially ptsd. a former officer who has lived that strtigle is wring to encourage other officers and firefighters to seek help. cory, this was your story this week. you met the officers. tell us about the ride and why he has bssught this meage to washington. >> officerhepherd is now medically ret hed. he a pretty compellingy. stor
6:27 am
he survived an ambush in washington state in 2012. was diagnosed with ptsdk but was force. get back on the three years later heurvived an ied explosion on the job as a motorcycle officer.e was onc again diagnosed with off-spe ptsd and had to medically retire. he still wanted to give back too his bers and sisters in blue. he thought when i was going realized diagnosis i that there was help available there, but it always wasn't made known to me and i always wasn't seeking i think what he wants officers anfirefighters and ems first respreders to lize, while you may go out on a call and come back fine and healthy,erhat you expienced, what you saw piles up. he madehe analogy of a bookshelf. every call is aifferent book. you close the book and put it on the bookshelf. after a while the bookshelf is too heavy and falls over and that's when you have the mental
6:28 am
healt distress and deal with things liked. pts he is going around the country, reiterating that it's important to know that mental health es resourc they need to do their job effectively are there. in talking tompd, they make that case to the cadets, their officers evy day. the kmanlder said it's noth o mucat we don't have the resources. it's that apeople,, think there s a stigma associated wi seeking help, and b, which i found interesting, thcee are conrned there may be consequences. if i go to a superior and say i'm struggling with my mental health, am i going to lose my job? the sommanderaid we always let th know there isueo conse. the consequences can be grave if you don't seek help. so that's why officer shepherd is riding around the country just letting officers know and departments know that, you know, these men and women go out and do their jobs and they ce back
