7:07 am
checkups actually matter and make a difference. >> boy, sure do. it was routine checkup that led to the prostate cancer diagnosis for our good friend, steve morrison of mmr over at preston and steve. his doctors, matter of fact, talk to him about it was doctor mike. steve you and i at event saturday? talking about this very topic how you got diagnosed. what was it, a blood test? >> psa test which is the only thing, and doctor mike can verify, as well, only thing of the err ray of tests i was getting any indication i had something going on, and it is a blood test, it is acinal blood test that's the test that saved my life. i had no symptoms of anything. pretty much, nothing, nothing going on, just that checkup that indicated it, and when that is happening, and you're not symptomatic of anything, chances are you're out ahead of it. very manageable. >> very manageable, doctor
7:08 am
mike, and no excuse for any of us guys not to get this blood test. what would be the treatment for governor wolf, doctor mike? >> well, if it is caught early, like it sounds like it is, then there are all kind of options. he can elect to have his prostate taken out, like steve did, that's kind of the gold standard of treatment. co-do radiation. and some people think that might be what he is going to do because he said the treatment will go on for several months as opposed to just going in, having it taken out, and then end of the story. but there are also people who elect to just watch and wait and see how it goes. >> so, steve why did you make the decision you did? >> i was never a fan of -- i'm considered, believe it or not, younger-ish, in the age range of people who get prostate cancer. even though i understand doctor mike maybe you can verify this that it is actually shifting down little bit. but i felt i wasn't a fan of having cancer in my body. >> right. >> and every time i took a meal or something that i was
7:09 am
also feeding that, that was in me, and i wanted it out. i didn't want any possible issue at all, and it is the kind of cancer that can basically be extracted in one shot. and it was. and i've been -- my psa level has been undetectable since getting the operation that's been over a year now. >> so doctor mike, for steve, i mean, is he in the clear now? >> i think he's going to live to 110 to be honest with you. i always give all of my patient a 30 day warantee. but he is cancer free. now, for a lot of people out there, doctors, in particular, there is a lot of controversy about the psa, i believe personally and professionally it is a very important test, and if you are out there listening, you need to do two things, when you go to your doctor, have what's called digital rectal exam to see if there are any nodules on the prostate, and you need to talk with your doctor about the
7:10 am
psa. i am a believer it is a piece of data. and in the case of steve, i believe, it saved his life. listen, you can't tell whether a prostate cancer is going to be life threatening or not bother you at all and you will die from something else. now willing to take that racing. >> you know yesterday, governor wolf has cancer, oh, my god, are you kidding mement and then go well it is prostate cancer. things improve so much with prostate cancer, that we can casino of relax when we hear that's what it is. doctor mike? >> i don't think anyone should relax, amazing new treatments coming along, we have robotic surgery that steve underwent i was out in a day or two going hiking. >> one night in the hospital and i was up walking an hour and a half after the surgery. >> so the thing is, the only thing you need to fear is fear itself. we've heard about that before. you do the right thing. if you are a man, you man up. go to the doctor. you get your exam.
7:11 am
up get your testing. >> if you have it, you deal with it, and you look as good as steve. >> steve, how has it changed your life? >> first big pro pope and the of paying it forward, such a positive thing store to spread, mike, that if you get pro-active, there are people, no one need die of this if they just take the precaution every getting the checkup as it was discovered with governor wolf, as with me, simple blood test it, saved my life. doctor mike's goal and my goal from here on in would be to get the word out. don't be scared. don't be frighten, very positive thing that can happen. i am here to a test to it. >> i know your awe busy on your radio show this time of morning, we appreciate your time. >> thank you. >> doctor mike, we love you, of course. >> thank you. steve, say hi to doctor shivers for me. >> he is scaring the hell out of my life at home, thank you. >> talk to you later guys.
7:12 am
>> there you go. >> governor tom wolf. >> lauren, your turn. >> it is, delaware county mother, mike, demanding answers following her son's violent end crower police, her 22 year old son has schizophrenia. on tuesday night he called police because i got a tad bit confused. the situation he will call ated when officers forced their way inside their home. there are reports that he grabbed a knife and used it she watched her son tasered twice and within minutes -- >> next thing i know he was laying on the floor. shot. he was bleeding out. he lost a lot of blood. >> she said she feels like her son slipped through the cracks, and now hopes the storely spread awareness of mental health issues in our country. >> funeral arrangement made for former miss new jersey, after being critically injured in a car crashment memorial service will take place this sunday february 28th at 1st united methodist church in

7:26 am
in the borough of queens, but just as queens boarders the rest of long island. >> hell copter headed? is that what you are hearing? >> coast guard helicopter coming in, you know, kind of hovering around the shift there, so helping out, as well. >> so everybody off, the coast guard vehicle, the helicopter, now back, at it base. the person to determine your credit worthiness based on facebook friends is over the explain that to me. >> thank goodness for. >> this basically going to checkup on you, start looking at your facebook page to determine whether lenders were going to? >> isn't that weird? >> facebook friends to get my credit record? >> way to learn about you, isn't it? >> what? >> yep. if you need to keep good company on facebook, apparent lip, yes. this is big push by several on line lenders and some start ups. facebook itself, but now everyone seems to back off the idea of you can get alone if we look who you're friends with on facebook, because just
7:27 am
doesn't make sense, there will be regula tour hurdles, some foams just calling the whole idea creepy. to r my personally i can see extending a loan to a small business based on who their customers are on facebook, that can maybe demonstrate your future sales, et cetera. but as for people, little different. if they use all caps, they say it proves they are not as credit worthy. so companies have all sorts of cookie ways to determine if you should get a loan. this was one every them. now your facebook friends, yes, not so much any more. >> lauren call facebook and tell them to get out of my life and it credit people too. >> let's do a new fashion book emoji button for this one, a roll eyes, all right? >> yes. you know the new emojis? >> are you sending out emojis now in your messages? >> no, i actually never do. i don't think i've ever done

>> he guts the fun assignment. >> sugar daddies, sugar babies, here is our sugar baby >> she says good this fell on the park and not on the cars. tree fell over in hunting park, so at least it went in the right direction, see a loft damage this morning, as a result of the storms last night, temperatures mostly
7:32 am
50's, bus stop buddy still has the umbrella, because we still have few showers moving through the area probably seeing limited sunshine going through the rest of the day today just couple of showers around, as well. so that's your planner for thursday, looking at the weekends coming up next. >> 6:32, two jams in the traffic cams, good news, because keeping the speeds down, hopefully the accident count east on 422 heavy from trooper road, on in, north on the freeway. >> all of the regional rail lines, car shortages on every line. for example, the 5714, original train out of thorndale, is going to now become an express from
7:33 am
villanova into center city, because it is stack and pack. instead of four cars, it only has two, so, between nova and center city it will zip on past, everyone else that's waiting for that train. so, expect delays, and that's going to have ripple effect for the morning, weather delays also throughout the morning, at philadelphia international airport. the lincoln drive flooded out northbound lanes blocked at gypsy lane. however, the southbound lanes are getting bike, mike and alex back over to you. >> 7:33, do you have the right to take pictures or videotape police officers? according to a federal judge, by the way, here in philadelphia, without expressive conduct the answer is no. you have to have a specific reason, according to this judge, to take a picture every videotape after police officer. the decision is based off two lawsuits, filed against the city of philadelphia, one in 2012, a woman says she was restrained while recording police arresting protesters at
7:34 am
a fracking protest, this is in 2013, so that was in 2012, then in 2013 a temple student says he was placed in a police van after taking pictures of police officers outside after house party near the temple campus. let's bring in attorney fred, good to see you. >> thank you for having me. >> from the aclu, mary catherine roper, i just can't speak today, so i'll let two talk. >> good morning, mike. >> so fred, what is the judge thinking? i'm big supporter of our police officers, but why can't i take a picture every him? >> who, me? >> yes, fred. >> i didn't hear the fred part. well, you can, mike. i mean, what this judge said, conduct is speech is protected by the first amount: if it was a sit-in, someone wearing an arm ban, protesting, that's protective. but under the first amount. but in this instance these two people honestly testified that the guy said i'm just here taking a pictures because i thought it would be a good
7:35 am
picture. the woman said i was just taking pictures, interestingly, either one said i'm here because i'm concerned about the police conduct, i want to make sure it gets documented i think you would see very, very different outcome. >> marry kate rink, do me a favor, make sense of this? >> our pegs was different one. we think you have a right to take pictures or record the police officers in public, i'm not talking about private things, but when they're doing their job, in public, it is a public job. we are the public. we get to take pictures of them. whether we think they're doing something wrong at the moment, whether we think they're doing something right at the moment, whether we plan to hold that photo for later, or whether we plan to put it up on facebook right away, and that's, frankly, what we will argue to the court of appeals. >> fred, where is this going? >> well it, will go to the court of appeal, do you have
7:36 am
realize, what this judge is saying is this, realize that the first amendment does protect conduct as speech. but it has to be some form of expressive. what the judge said in this case was that these two individuals, who by the way still have their fourth amendment right against the police for unreasonable seizure, and they're claiming it against the police for excessive force, those claims are still in the case. what the judge said is that this speech, as expression, is not -- is not un feather. there has to be some limit on t and if you were just sitting there in the middle of the street, that's not speech and expression, if you were at sit in, look at all of the facts and circumstances around it, all of this judge is saying is expression as speech does have some limits. and he's not worried about that. >> hold on fred. so let's say i go down, on broad street today, i take a picture every police officer across the street. >> for no reason what soar. >> i like the horse he is sitting on. >> that's fine. >> well, nothing wrong with
7:37 am
that? >> no. there wouldn't be anything wrong with that, you know, because under your, you know, not taking pictures -- >> nothing specific that i'm doing. just i like his horse. >> what if you saw after arrest, you decided to take pictures other than no reasons than you thought it would be good picture. why the said that's not enough. in you wanted to take a picture because you were concerned that the police were going to be acting in a certain way, or were you concerned, then you have unfetters right to do. that that's conduct. >> mat marry catherine, do you understand it the same way? >> something to understanded here. judge did not say and the city of philadelphia did not say it is illegal to take that picture without any reason. so, don't anybody think that you cannot, that you could be arrested just for taking pictures of police. that's not at all what the judge is saying. >> what's the ruling mean then? >> they just don't want you to do it, stop? >> basically the question is whether you have a first amendment right, if that police officers comes up to
7:38 am
you and says stop taking pictures, whether you have a first amendment right to keep taking those pictures, or whether the officer can tell to you stop. >> what if isn't is taking a picture of me, air right to say quit shooting, don't shoot my i am snack. >> not when you are in public, no. >> well then why -- if i have an uniform on? >> again this isn't about whether it is illegal. this is about whether you have a first amendment right, essentially, to sue the police officers, if the police officer interferes with you recording. by the way, i will say, you talk to any fief over -- photographer, talk to any artist, talk to any journalist, they would be really surprised at the idea that taking a picture not first amount amendment protected. >> thank god the acls out there. but i disagree, if a photograph is her, there he is therefore a reason, there is to conduct an investigation. he is thereto report the news. he has unfettered right. and i think this judge very clearly said that this is limited to the facts of this
7:39 am

8:18 am
one have been working with this restaurant group more than ten years. you have to feel for them. what's the difference? mark vet tree said hey i looked at paperwork. >> 8 million undocumented workers, 30 less as of the other day after the 30 folks have lost their jobs. >> just one restaurant. >> just one. so here is the way the process works. employers are required to basically ascertain that the identification of an employee is okay relative to our work laws. meaning they are either citizen and/or have the proper papers to work. now, many employees, like the vetri group used the paper form which let's be hon zest not the most air-tight way to do this. right? there are lots of ways that you sort of glance, oh, it looks okay. >> he even calls it eye-balling. >> eye-balling. the e-verify system however, electronic, taps into the department, so verifies can find out the employees are eligible to work here legally. new owner, urban outfitters,
8:19 am
using the system, discovered these 30 folks who allegedly are not able to work here legally. there is an appeal process however. >> so there is something they can do. what's that process? >> appeal process. we have eight days to appeal t1 of the workers feels that they were, you know, mix-up in say the paperwork or something like that, they can appeal the process while they are appealing still keep their job. however, look, we know that this is a big problem, not just here in philadelphia, with terms of vetri but throughout the country, front and center in our presidential reelection right now, as well. what we've done unfortunately we've mixed politics into this issue, created back economics in many examples. here is the thing, talk about politics, we do know pennsylvania lawmakers trying to bring this to make it mandatory for all businesses. >> yes, pennsylvania one of 16 state that already has some level of mandatory verification for contractors to the state or subcontractors. there is a move a foot to make it mandatory for all
8:20 am
employers, in the state of pennsylvania, as is done in other states as well by the way. new jersey and delaware do not have it. and there is pros and cons on both sides. right? reality we should know who is, would g here, they should all have some sort of legal stat us, that's good thing for all of us. but the same time, we can't simply get rid of 8 million workers overnight, and not expect the economy to suffer. that's obvious. >> true. because looks like from the recent information here about 5% of employees have already been flagged. e-verify. >> 5% of employees, 5% of our labor force are here without the proper documentation. that's huge economic issue, as well, political issue. i would suggest there is thoughtful ways to solve this problem. if we move away from the extremes on both sides. >> okay? well, thank you for explaining that. >> meantime we pay little bit more for pizza because this probably means wages will go up. >> true. >> yes. >> thanks for the warning. >> you got it. >> okay, because i like extra cheese and extra pepperoni on mine. >> why not? >> 8:20, another day, another kanye rant. here's new target, the

8:48 am
tree, it is your homeowners policy that will cover that, unless, unless, that neighbor was neglect, maybe that tree was rotted out, you have warned that neighbor about it, they've done nothing about it, that's tough to prove though, so probably your insurance company. here is something in advance then, do you have neighbor that has a tree ready to come down, go videotape that now. >> document, hey, this thing is a mess. bring it down. even though it will be hard to prove. >> couple of things, people showing trees in their yards everywhere. do we have to pay for the true or can my insurance? >> great question. typically insurance will pay for it, if the tree damaged structure, if the tree just fell in your backyard, n convenient, ugly, it is on your own. >> what if it is a big tree? >> too bad. if the tree damaged your garage or car, and cars are whole different topic, the insurance kicks in. >> we look up at lancaster, we think that's a tornado, them ' determine that probably by the end of the afternoon. boy these people, i mean, can you have tornados insurance?
