mind-boggling. >> guys want to say anything? >> you know what though? we trucked to a lot of folks yesterday. a lot of them just use the same word: it is sad. disappointing, one of our heroes, this person we admired, you hear one allegation after another. now that it is up to 50 women including this local woman from our area it, gives more credence to the claims. >> all right, 7:06. is this thursday? >> it is thursday, new years eve morning. >> okay. well, we had another homicide overnight. what's that bring us to, 270 -- >> 276, he can actually. on the 2500 block every west clearfield street. police say it was right after midnight they found a 21 year old man on the sidewalk shot multiple times. he was riding a bike when he was shot. then he tries to get away. he runs away, doesn't get far. he chances and dice at the hospital. >> and then in middletown, delaware, police were called out to a triple shooting. happened along the 300 block of elizabeth street around
7:07 am
8:00 last night. two people were taken to the hospital with unknown injuries. then in north philadelphia back here, emotional tributes given by those who lost loved ones because every violence, in this year of 2015. >> and they purposely decide to hold this memorial vigil on the same day as maybe getting the most recent crime statistics. some of the family members gathering right at 15th and susquehanna last evening. they shared their stories, about their friends, and loved ones, they lost that were victims of murder in the citiment and in each of those balloons, they had a victim's name. and they released them in their memory. one woman whose brother right there was murdered four years ago, told of heart break. >> i sat on the couch 16 month and dropped my life away. i was on for 16 months, so real. >> police commissioner charles ramsey says this is the third straight year we've had fewer than 300 homicide. so far in the city 276, which is up 12% from last year, 84
7:08 am
of those cases from begin violence, again, just said 276. the graphic said 275 because we had a killing last night. we didn't update the graphic. >> if you were wondering. commissioner ramsey says despite the increase this year, homicides have gone down, drastically, over the past eight years, that, for sure he's right about that. >> day 365, 365, out with the old, in with the new, celebrations all over including in our area. >> then tomorrow morning of course the mummers parade kicks off revelers will notice changes, few changes and some newcomb ers to the parade. >> remember, mike, 190; i was here at the first mummers

7:10 am
like mike was hinting at yesterday. so mike, not on 95 or the pa turnpike yet, keep the same route two years in a row, live long philadelphians remember so much about this, one thing they'll see new is this new division, and they'll start the parade at 9:00 a.m. call it the philadelphia division. and this is going to counter all of the critics who complained that the mummers looked diversity. so in the philly division, we have a drag group, the missy fancy brigade, puerto rican dance and drum club called last bomberos. how about that for my spanish pronunciation? by the way, mike, websters defines mummers as a performer, one who goes merry making during festivals in disguise. so mike, if we count your make up as a disguise, you're officially a mummer. >> everyday. by the way your ride's here.
7:11 am
>> thank you, steve. >> mike? >> what? >> was asking people what we should be doing on the show for new years eve. what we should be dropping off, getting ready for all of the celebration. >> one of our questions today. oh, i'm going to go to the roof of this building at about 9:45. and drop something off. but i can't decide what to drop off this year. >> well, tracey says, maybe water balloons with pictures on it of all of the hottest trends and things from 2015. >> so that's one idea. use your #fox29goodday. >> you didn't like that one? >> i actually do like that. >> come up with some more. >> water balloons with things we want to get rid of, like kim kardashian, trends, we think are over for this year. >> i real i am like that idea. >> what's happening up in new york city, getting ready up there, always worried about security when you have that many people converging on one point like times square. >> million people are expected, and people, this, is a live look great starbucks, 43rd and broadway, i go to many times at this time of
7:12 am
day, anyway, that's what we are looking at actually. that is the building. you know what? >> tell me. >> that's not. i believe that's the opposite view. well, who cares? that's times square. >> we see the police that are already there that are gathering. we know that some people are actually lined to up get their spots. we're expect being 6,000 officers, many of the dogs that are probably sniffing as we speak. >> yes. >> they have new counter terrorism unit that's going to be keeping a watchful eye. >> do you think dogs are sniffing right there? >> i actually do think they are doing the sweep. they're going to use metal detectors up there. and i think that's one of the first times i've heard that they've done that to get into that area, to show up. >> but i think you're right. yes, metal detectors to get into to broadway, seventh avenue area there in times square. >> how about in belgium? that's where so many terrorists apparently are hiding out. new years eve celebrations have been canceled due to a suspect dollars tech or threat.
7:13 am
this as another suspect in that paris attack was arrested, what is that, ten people now arrested? because of the terrorist attack? >> well, they've been on high alert ever since the terror attack, so deadly, 130 people lost their lives in paris, and many of those suspects were actually belgium citizens. >> that's right. living in brussels. >> 7:13 is the time right now, taking a look at the national headlines, tonya couch, the mother of that afluenza teenager, back in our country. she was deported from mexico yesterday. she is the mom of ethan couch, who is still in mexico, because a judge blocked his deportation. that family cents had a mine, they have good lawyers, and they're fighting it. >> look how he disguises himself with the dark hair. >> the light, then the dark hair. they disappeared, they took off. >> this is him from months and months ago at the trial. >> correct. so then video that surfaced, recently, and he looked like
7:14 am
he was at a party, there were shots, under age drinking, that may have violated his parole. you remember after this case he was only sentenced to probation. ten years of probation in connection with that drunk driving crash where he killed four people. so his lawyers had argued and successfully argue that he was such a spoiled rich brat, that he never learned right from wrong. he ended up getting away with the probation. >> what do you think the judge is thinking now? historic flooding leaves homes and businesses underwater in the midwest. specially, in the state of missouri. >> well, what's fascinating is that the flood waters are still rising, missouri facing the biggest crisis mandatory evacuations are happening right now for thousands of people in the st. louis area. people are battling two rising rivers. it is both the mississippi which could be cresting at 15 feet above flood level today. flood watt verse also spilled over nine levies, 11 more could go, as women, interstates have been shutdown, and 20 people have died of both missouri and
7:15 am
illinois. >> it is casino of weird. because it was a giant storm that had blizzards in mexico tornados in texas killed a bunch of people, then all of this flooding in missouri. but soup, it moved through. >> no rain right there now, but it is a lot of the blame goes to el nino, one of those el nino winters, that gave us spring time conditions, in december. >> we ring in 2016, so five, four, three, two, one, we expect admit night temperature of, there it is, 39 degrees. forty-four tomorrow for the mummers parade. happy new year. now, there is some rain in georgia, panhandle of florida, carolinas, but that's associated with the cold front that we had last night, in case you didn't notice it, did rain overnight. but, it is gone now, we expect no more rain for the rest of

be. also, something that really hit me, chip kelly is a pathological liar. >> wow. >> yikes. >> i mean that sincerely. they thought about it last year. when he came on at the end of the season and basically said oh, i didn't want full control. jeffrey lurie just gave it tow to me. if you watch yesterday press conference jeff lure when he mentioned that fact oh, look chip kelly demanded that i give him full control and he smirked. >> yep. >> he smirked about that, as that certain point. so to me chip kelly constantly lies. it is obvious. >> can i show you something here? i want to show you something here. >> dictator is gone. did you hear that. >> very open about the fact that he thought that chip was well intends sean, but again, couldn't communicate with the flares, what the goal was. he said while chip was here,
7:20 am
devisive atmosphere in the lockerroom, everybody wasn't going in the same direction, as i think that the players are really working for a coach not only under stands the game of football, but, you know, crafted environ until the that lockerroom where it is 53 players playing together, and not playing against their head coach. which seemed to be down the stretch this year. >> let's play little sounds bite from the owner yesterday at about 12:30. >> i go back to peak performance. if you want to have peak performance, you got to have tremendous collaboration, trust, respect, smartness, agility, a lot for peak performance and leadership. so, you know, that was the decision was made to move on with a new leader, as a head coach. >> so what is he saying, chip didn't have any that far? >> that's basically what i am taking from it. >> all would have been forgiven if he won.
7:21 am
>> absolutely. >> gave him the platform, you have the power, but you're responsible, and you're going to take the consequences if it doesn't work out. it didn't. he pulled it. >> we aren't hearing about all of this nonsense in the lockerroom, not hearing about him not relating with the lockerroom. >> he just didn't win enough in three years. >> let's say they stumbled into beating the redskins and the giant. it sound like jeffrey had made a decision get rid of him. now stuck with him. >> you know, i would still say that there is a chance that chip kelly would be removed as head coach even if they didn't -- >> even if they made the playoffs howie roseman is back. >> howie roseman wins? >> don't play with howie roseman. >> howie roseman bumped joe banner out of the way. >> that's right. >> now with his that was his

7:32 am
2004. so, bill, who was arraigned in elkins park, posted bail and turned over his past port, as many as 60 women have allegedly accused bill cosby of assaulting them, and this is the first time he's been criminally charged in any of those accusations, the question is: will a man with his celebrity status ever be convicted? joining us andy fell man, rhonda hill wilson, former prosecutor, fred tisi. thank you for being here. should we start down at the end? >> oh, sure. >> let's go to the guy first. >> guy first. >> oh, man. just overall view, are you surprised by this? >> no, snot surprised by this at all. i was surprised when he wasn't prosecuted couple of years ago. >> oh, back then? >> yes, back then. you know, because these charges were looked at. >> this woman brought civil suit not long after this had happened, settled in 2006. >> but the da back then -- >> let it go. so, given the charges, you
7:33 am
know, indecent assault, which is what he is charged with, he clearly meet the statute. i don't don't understand why he wasn't charged but that's like old news. i think he is charged now, these are tough cases, tough cases for the commonwealth. but i think the allegations, he can't take the witness stands. i think he is -- >> what do you mean he can't take the witness stand? >> the challenger for him here he's made certain admission action during the course of the depositions he took in the federal case. and in those depositions he admitted he gave pills. he admitted some type of sexual activity. and then he calls and he says that he want to make good. he apologizes, those are petting damning things. those are things that have been admitted to and unsealed in federal court. so how do you get around that? >> how do you get around that? >> well i think the reason that he wasn't charged ten years ago was at the time at least there was, you know, you had the very famous guy, and who was very well loved at the time before all of this happened, and you have a woman who hadn't come forward, not only hadn't she come forward at the time, three month after
7:34 am
it happened, having not gone to the hospital or the police, she moved to canada. it took her another several months until she even told her family. it was almost a full year from that time until her mother called the authorities. >> and her -- hadn't they known each other? >> they had, yes, they had a bunch of meetings, one of which he admitted inch a prepare rhett at touching. but he had none this woman for years, met with him in new york, met with him in connecticut, met with him down year. not that she was a stranger. but the allegations over the last couple of years have been who are i have i can, and they've been -- there are so many of them, and they're all so consistent. so, you know -- >> not only consistent, part of which he has admitted to, admitted to giving women pills. >> that's part every it. also a settlement agreement. i haven't seen it, but i bet you lunch at my favorite restaurant that says i don't admit anything at all. >> i admit no guilt, except what he said in the deposition instead my question actually,
7:35 am
the thing that i don't understand, why was it at the time he was giving a deposition in a civil case, did his lawyer not say to to the plaintiffs ' lawyer also to the d.a., basically, we're not going to give any information unless we get immunity. >> look -- >> why would they say that on the record? >> well said, done. and i think that is the basis of these charges, and i think it makes it a lot different now than it did ten years ago. >> this is one woman. >> right. how do they come in in this case, if he doesn't take the witness stands? >> the prosecution doesn't get them in the case in chief -- >> but she takes the stand. >> he takes the stand. >> well, his words take the stand against him if this deposition is admitted. >> of course it is, it is
7:36 am
admission. >> and public opinion, certainly, everyone has heard about this case, about the multiple women who have come out. you have to get a jury who hasn't heard about this. >> you would be surprised. you will be amazed. >> but the tide has changed. even ten years ago. >> oh, yes. >> no means no. now, it is true, she says at least part of this is well i couldn't say no, i was inch incapacitated. >> hold on. >> she goes over to his house, and he goes here, take these pills. >> right. >> benadryl. >> right? but even -- >> would you take them? i mean, look. isn't that inapropriate to offer? >> i think that's why it will be a challenge on both ends. some people will blame the victim. and then you are going to have tomorrow people who are going to say -- >> blame the victim? >> well, they are going to.
7:37 am
>> in these rape cases, very very difficult on the victim, it is very tough. very unfair. >> they are doing things that are changing. because at the time he i think one of the reasons he didn't ask for immunity it didn't occur to him. he says in his deposition, in the deposition testimony he said well she didn't say no, she didn't give permission but she didn't say no. now we have moved to a place ten years later. but ten years later -- >> ten years ago, ten years ago this guy was beloved philadelphia and, beloved international figure, who has given back to the community in ways, those days, his reputation has been so tarnished. >> but you say that's the biggest celebrity case since oj? >> yes. >> twenty years snag. >> yep. >> how so? >> all is gone, baby. >> i know. >> thank you. >> thanks for having us. happy new year. >> kay say this? happy new year. >> happy new year. >> okay, hey, sue, what's up? >> bus stop buddy ready for the new year, already celebrating at least there is a lot of confetti around, and funny happen, it sort of new
