7:05 am
his instagram account. paramedic marcell salters is a three-year department vet. the picture taken from a rap video called hands up by a rapper uncle murder shows two men point ing a gun at the head of the police officer. salters goes on to write i never did or will like the the police. the picture was followed up by another post, it read there are numerous, crooked and corrupt cops mostly white and mostly they harass, beat or kill innocence, mostly blacks. the picture has been deleted and salters has since apologized but the fire storm is still on. now the police and fire departments are among those reacting to this post. lets get to steve keeley with more on how they are handling this. >> reporter: it has never been an easy time to be a police officer in this country but now is probably one of the hardest times and the philadelphia police department coincidently is looking for a
7:06 am
few good women and men. they have a help wanted sign up and, in fact, they have commissioner ramsey made to look like uncle sam with the ad uncle ram wants you but now, there are cops and protest against police whose job is hard enough and it seems even harder. you would want to know who would want to be a police officer in this environment. look at video uglier when criticism peers to be racist and threatening. uglier still coming from somebody you work side by side with. the reaction was swift, stern the morning right after chris o'connell on fox 29 broke this story wednesday night first coming from the mayor in the written statement calling marcell salters on line rants reprehensible saying he could quote inn sense others to inappropriate actions. salter's other box the fire commissioner says an official investigation is underway an job action coming after it is over. >> absolute stupidity especially what we are going through these days.

7:08 am
department familiar with disciplinary investigations, tells thaws salters will surely be facing some kind of repercussions, not just for what he wrote but likely more about when and where he wrote it, because alex, mike, not the initial posting he made off-duty but follow-up comments he posted while on duty this investigation has shown so far. >> yeah, it will be interesting when he shows up to the scene if he ever gets back to work. yikes. well, a $2,500 reward is being offered for information about a drugstore robbery in montgomery county. >> it happened unday at rite aide on north broad street in hatfield township. surveillance video shows a with man handing a net to the cashier that exposed what she claims is a bomb. police say suspect was so discrete two customers a few feet behind the suspects were unaware that the robbery was even happening. >> it was done so discretely, didn't even know what was going on and then she excited the store. they were then alerted that a robbery occurred good woman

7:31 am
west philadelphia a so now lawmakers are calling for more sanctions from north korea a country who pretty much hate us. joining me with this great panel is congressman patrick meehan, chairman of the subcommittee on cyber community, john singleton and scholar and resident of lasalle university, and ed turzanski and ken rottweiler. good morning. >> hi, alex. >> we will start with you congressman. you released a statement on this you said this should in the be a surprised, a growing problem. >> it is not a surprise that we face vulnerability but thinks anes lacing where we are moving away from the economic situation like a target attack into one in which now they have in the only shut down the computer systems of a major united states corporation. they have taken the private information and put that out in a way that exposed employees, but most significant can'tly they are threatened a nation with the idea that if you use your ability to express yourself
7:32 am
yourselfves, we're going to threat tone harm americans. that is anes lacing. >> it is not even just threatening the nation, it is nation to nation. when we think of hacking we think of one or two individuals or a small group. it has in the been necessarily confirmed but an entire nation is doing this you are talking nations. now it isn't confirmed but all of the signs point to north korea direct involvement. the question here is are they acting in a capacity in which as you said it is not just a criminal gang that is stealing money, is it ace deliberate intent on the part of the nation state to terrorize a nation. >> some people are saying come on they cannot really do anything. is this really credible thing that we should be taken seriously. >> alex, consider this it is not just an attack on a nation or a nation state or several nations, it is an attack on the western way of life because think for a moment if
7:33 am
whoever did this the north koreans or somebody who is helping them and likely a a nation state because it is very sophisticated if they can shut down a film by threatening the studio who says they cannot reach into every news organization in the united states and indeed, throughout the entire west and say by the way you were going to run that story or you are going to run a series of stories, critical of our country. it would be a shame if something happened to your news organization. how confident would any of the big networks be if all of a sudden all of their e-mails were available for everyone to read and how likely would that they be to pursue hard stories, against misbehavior of foreign countries if they knew that it would be business death, anytime they decided to be critical. >> lets talk about response.
7:34 am
because white house is talking about they are considering a proportional response. should they retaliate or will it make a problem bigger. >> there are a variety of ways, more serious thing would be economic sanctions or identifying if you can a attribute north korea as a terrorist state because thinks an act of terrorism. but there may be ways to influence them by moving towards south cover re, kind of thing that would be intimidate to go them. there is other options, that are out there on the table, we have to be careful that if you engage in something like this with the country like this, is there nothing to lose. >> this could be a cyber war,. >> well, yes but lets keep in mind in terms of punishing them, what are we, live in the bad country with a bad country, and, and, so there you are, we have to play chess with this and be very clever in our response because as you
7:35 am
you suggest, there is always, the the counter measure that comes back our way. >> ken, i haven't forgotten about you. >> but "fox news" legal analyst. lets talk from sony a's point of view. are they just covering themselves in case anything were to happen. >> i think they are. do they have a lawsuit? have they suffered damages? the movie cost 44 million to spent. they spent 30 million-dollar in promotion. question is new they have suffered that since they have pulled movie. do they have a lawsuit. question is can they sue north korea? we know the answer is no we have in diplomatic relations. is there in court to go to. but in answer tour question sony is covering themselves but mess people think they are covering themselves from the lawsuit if somebody goes to a theater and they get hurt. they are not worried about that. their liability there is limited what they are worried about is lawsuit as a result of the private information coming out, there is already been a class action lawsuit that was filed monday against, sony. they have released 10 percent of all of the information that they collect these hackers.
7:36 am
they say they have actually hundred times more. >> social security numbers. >> all private information. there were deals that were struck with sony, sony private information, start ups and things like that that will suffer as a result on have this information being let out. sony has been attacked before. so they are on notice about all of this. >> they should have protect their own company. >> they did nothing. they absolutely did nothing. they were prone to more attacks. from that standpoint those lawsuits will go forward and they are all viable. >> thank you so much, gentlemen i appreciate it. >> thank you. your holiday dinner, are you nervous about what your guests will think of your hosting? we have ways to just wow them over the holidays. they will just want to come back every year. speaking of the holidays we are so excited we will be skypeing with santa, tomorrow, on fox 29 weekend. getting ready for a wig week. parent we want your kids to tweet their questions or even send us video to santa and
