the story, is interesting in and of itself that is why we will bring in the atf historian, and tell me a little bit about how you discovered this, i guess you were looking into mid-to late 1800s. 40 deputy collectors that had been killed and came across a story you never heard of. >> it was found in a newspaper article, and i read that an african american, deputy collector was killed in the line of duty. i knew we had never heard of him, he wasn't on our wall. it began a recovery process to learn the story of our fallen hero, deputy collector foot. >> reporter: tell me this was in mississippi. >> yes. >> reporter: he was down there, enforcingly core laws. >> that's correct. he was a deputy collector, a revenue enforcement officer, collecting taxes on liquor basically. >> reporter: how did he come to lose his life. there was a lot going down there during that time in the
1800s. >> it was. >> reporter: give me a little more insight. >> it was a very tumultuous time for not only law enforcement but politically and racially in yazoo city, mississippi. he had 14 years on him as a law enforce. officer he was asked to intervene in a potential whipping of an african american in town. when he intervened, the event became a shoot out, and dooring that shoot out, three white men were killed. and -- during that shoot out, three white men were killed. 10 african americans were arrested, shortly later a mob of 200 stormed the jail and killed deputy collector foot and three other african americans. >> reporter: yes, there was no record at the time. today as we step out we will see, we are going to add the name. you will be unvailed later on today at what time.
>> 1:30 p.m. >> reporter: you will have that ceremony give me an idea tell me about the significance of this. you see all the names on the wall they have been memorialized and talked about what is the significance of this person and how this means something different, this time around. >> actually he is a good example of a dedicated officer who gave his life, the ultimate sacrifice protecting our communities against violent came that is what atf -- crime. that is what atf agents do. day in and day out. 1883, he was already setting our traditions of protecting communities against violent crime. and what makes it unique is that he was lost but now he has been found so to speak and we are really excited as an agency to honor him, after 130 years, during police week, at a time when we are all honouring our agents our fallen heros. >> reporter: right >> it is a wonderful opportunity. >> it is interesting too. as you step back in here i want
to tell people a little bit more. you were able to track down the family even, four generations of the foot family will be here for this today. >> mm-hmm. >> reporter: what is it look for them. >> i think they are so excited that their relative is finally being honored for all of his contributions not only to law enforcement, but to civil rights as well. and this is a great opportunity for them all to meet, and so now, they are one big happy family joining the atf family. >> reporter: barbara, thank you so much. we are glad, this peeked your interest you saw something and ran with it and now we are able to discover some body lost all these years. >> thank you so much. >> reporter: tony and allison back to you. >> remarkable story. >> thank you very much. still ahead this hour recent recommendation could be a life changing step, in the fight against hiv. >> a drug used for treatment could soon be used for prevention. coming up after the break.
welcome back. we have news just in from bwi marshall airport. parts of terminals a and b evacuated because of a strange odour in terminal b. bwi marshall says there is little impact tonight operations so far gain that is -- impact to flight operations so far again that is portions of terminals a and b evaluated. advisory panel to the food and drug administration recapproval of truvan has adds an anti hiv medication it is already approved as a treatment for people who already have hiv infection. in the fda follow it is recommendation it would become the first approved medication
to prevent uninfected people from getting hiv. with more on this is justin director of medical adherence at whitman walker health sounds like a big deal to us. is it a big break through? good morning. >> good morning thank you for having me. it is an exciting time because in 30 years of hiv prevention we have had to rely solely on behaviour change, trying to get people to change behaviours that are not easy to change. trying to get people to use condoms consistently, 100% of the time, that sort of thick. now we have something that actually can help -- thing. now we have something that can help providers doctors, engage people in care. rather than saying we hope you do this when you go home we can for the most at risk people, the people we know are continually at risk, and need something additional, we can prescribe them a drug now, that
can have great efficacy preventing hiv >> it works medically to do that but we talked earlier, you are not saying don't take away condoms or your good sense. >> absolutely. if we worked with some body, and they've got to the point they feel like they can use condoms, use ma nothing my, use abstinence, use other tools in the tool box comfortably, 100% of the time or even most of the time, that person is doing great and not a candidate. this is for someone really struggling with trying to get out of that really high risk category and perhaps, even a woman in a power dynamic relationship where many are, where they don't have a choice they can't ask their man to use a condom because it is just not a part of their relationship
dynamic we know women like that all over the world. can you imagine the choice this gives them finally because they can do this, without even having their partner know. >> how likely is the fda to go through the panels recommendation. >> well, i hope they do. experts did go forward and say we recommend that. usually when that happens the fda does recommend it. i have a positive outlook. >> we know medication can be expensive what are we talking here and would insurance cover it. >> so, you know if it gets approval from the fda most likely, insurance companies would cover it, medicaid already talked with the cdc about covering it they are looking positive towards covering it. it is expensive probably 800, 900, $1,000 a month is what it is currently, for the united states for globally we would look at probably a generic form that would be cheaper for
developing countries and so on. and that seems very expensive but really again you are targeting a smaller group, 50 to 60,000 people in the u.s. every year infected with hiv that number is not going down. that number for a decade or more has remained stable. so we need to target those people. those people are tremendously at risk they are clearly not using the other tools in the tool box so this is in addition, we could help those people bring that number down in the u.s., if we did that, then you save the cost of hiv treatment over the long haul for those people. that would be a tremendous savings. there is potential for cost savings or cost neutrality. >> we will wait and look forward to see what happens with truvada thanks for coming in to talk about it. director of medical adherence at whitman walker health. thank you. coming up a big week ahead for facebook. how you can cash in. problems at jp morgan lead
to resignation of several top executives, the latest on the company's battle. first though, let's check with holly getting quite a work out this morning. >> i am. i am learning from some of the best. right now i am watching eric, work out, he is a golden glove champion, world class amateur just turned pro and happens to be a client of champion boxing fitness where we are live this morning, and where whether you want to get in the ring or not you can train like a champion too. we will tell you how live later on fox 5 morning news stay with us. thank you. first today's trivia question, what are you afraid of if you have an i don't know how to pronounce this, pogonaphobia. the answer is coming up later. head to our facebook page. fox 5 morning news is back after the break

ridell over health problems he said he is impair bid injuries he suffered door -- impaired by injuries his suffered during his football career. joining us with more insight is ken harvey, president of a consulting group. first question you and art are friends how is art? i have to say we heard the news last week we were quite taken aback. >> yeah, i saw the newscast. he is doing well. i talked to him on the phone. i think this is more like you and i we put some weight on and still look the same but when we look at ourselves we can tell the difference. i think that is probably what art has said. >> not so much something we would notice but he knows. >> i am having some memory loss. >> yeah. >> difficulty with speech. >> more and more. >> talk about that era in the nfl. art and othersthe nfl was,
fairly negligent about informing players what the risks were. was that obviously we know there are changes going on now. was that a time when the at constitute was just tough it out and get back -- was just tough it out and get back out there and play. >> mind you i am not an expert at this, but during that time, my time, there was a couple factors, factor being in our mind set, suck it up, get back in there. the worry of losing your job. you don't want to be perceived of being soft. lack of knowledge whether the nfl knew or didn't know that was a big factor now you are starting to see results of concussions and because of some tests we are doing you starting to find out maybe if you have a concussion how long do you sit a player out. do you sit a player out for a game, a few minutes when we did it it was like how you feeling. count how many fingers get back in the game. as a player you talked and your
mind just keep going >> that is an interesting thing what to me, will make these lawsuits difficult. art filed suit, many nfl players have filed suit, mark ripen is part of another group. if the mind set was amongst the players i got to get back in there, seems to me that might be hard to prove nfl is at fault. >> you don't know. you don't know if nfl had test results or doctors say that you know, concussions this is the time we recommend. there were studies done, and different things done in medical journals that said concussions, this is what you need to do. football is different. a concussion is not only football, football is labeled because you see it but women get concussions in basketball. there are a lot of con suggestions in different sport -- concussions in different sports. the more research we are having on it. how much did you know at that time. >> that is the concern.
if they knew and didn't give that information to players. >> right. >> do you think the nfl is doing a good job now? we hear more about it now and seems to be things they are trying to do to protect players. >> they are. change is hard. that is the big thing for me, the way i grew up, it was like you hit, you suck it up, when you see some body laying off a quarterback or flags man that is not football but the reality is now you have to make some hard changes, you know for safety later down the road, i think they are making changes they are doing some changes. it is because of these things changes are happening. >> your kids who play football, do you have concerns? >> i do. that is why i am more conflicting. this is a personal decision because you don't want to fool with the game you love and got you where you are at but i have
my son who plays, and i see the excitement in his face he enjoys the game. if there are injuries you just want the team and doctors to do what is best you know. like i said, if you take a day off or two weeks or three weeks let's do that. but i also know, if you don't have the right people, they can say no, get back in the game. >> we are running out of time. real quickly about your consulting group. we have you on never talked about it what is it. >> journey attitude knowledge and action we do business development marketing and transitional management and that is kind of the transitioning with athletes into you know, the other world. it transitions in life. we all go through transition and changes, so some times it is knowing your journey knowing where you came from, having the right attitude, developing knowledge, you know, there are things, to learn and apply, so

tell us about dijorno. >> we got him and his litter west virginia, and we try to help out as many local shelters as we can. they are just overwhelmed, they have too many animals. we are really fortunate to live in a city where we have a lot of wonderful people who come adopt. you know adoption is a great thing we are able to help out these shelters that otherwise wouldn't have a way to get their animals adopted. >> a lot seem to come from west virginia. >> definitely. >> this is empress. empress was found as a stray believe it or not. this cute thing she has come to us she is super smart, playful knows how to sit, a great dog that just maybe got lost or some body let her out >> empress is a german shepherd mix >> that is our best guess. >> you can see the shepherd in her. >> definitely.
>> now dog bite prevention week is kicking off next week. let's talk about that. it is a time where a lot of shelters raise awareness how to safely interact. we love dogs they make great pets but kids need to know how to safely approach them. >> absolutely. one of the things to know about dogs is any time you are interacting with a dog not your own you want to proceed with a little more caution. >> i think we tend to forget that. they are so cute and fluffy you go full force on them. what is a good way to approach them. >> side ways are usually best. >> side ways. >> and avoiding direct eye contact if i approach this dog i would want to approach side ways, you can kneel down if it is smaller and avoid direct eye contact or looming over. those are all things that could threaten the dog. and any time a dog feels threatened you are going to
increase the chances that the dog might bite. biting is a normal way that they communicate,. >> right. >> but there is a lot we can do to prevent that because obviously it is not a communication method that works well for people >> more like a gnawing at first but i learned to put your hand out here. does that work. >> absolutely extend your hand toward a dog. looking at the dog's body language can be another good indicator you want to look for a wigly loose relaxed body, any sort of stiffness or stillness should be a huge red flag to stop. and you also want to be really cautious any time you are approaching a dog you don't know. family pets are one thing. you can probably do a lot with your family pet, hug them wrestle with them all kinds of things you wouldn't do with someone else's dog but just like, we can all hug our family members and be really close and physical with them, but if i just grab some body on the street and hug them, it would
be a little weird for that person. >> stiff movement is a no. that is probably why my yorkie always puts his ears on full alert when i loom over him. >> this is the 7th year, where you can dress up your pets and have a good time. empress and digorno may be there. we want to mention, life for animals adopt athon, may 27th. check out this info on your website. at myfoxdc.com. back to you. all right. >> playful puppies. >> good information thank you. >> boxing kick boxing and boot camps some classs you can take. boxing fitness in rockville maryland. that is where we find holly morris, getting quite the work out hey, holly. >> guess what tony, your pretty face will be preserved our three time world champ showed up. i want to show off the pink
