many said the campaign was marred by u.s. style negative campaigning. closer to home, in just a few hours vice-president joe biden will give the commencement address at delaware state university's graduation ceremony. event begins at 10:00 a.m. this will be the second time that biden is addressing graduates at the university. he was the united states senator when he spoke there back in 2003. we have got this first amendment battle right the here in the schools in pennsylvania. can you joke about a bomb threat, the at all? even off a school campus on a personal facebook page? an appeals court ruled freedom of speech does in the the protect a freshman at a central york high school. he was expelled for 23 days about two years ago after a bomb threat closed his school. a bomb isn't found and goes off, tomorrow. joining us right new to break this down we have attorney heather hanson. good morning. >> good morning, karen. >> what do you make of this? we have a high school kid, he
writes something. he didn't even do the initial threat. this is the day after the threat. the court said well, no you can be expelled. >> schools are in a real difficult position here because students do have first amendment rights and when they are not on campus or not a at a school event, they have more first amendment rights, however, when you start doing things like threatening other people, threatening a bomb threat, the law says about substantially disrupts the school and in that situation courts have found that the first amendment rights do not the apply and that schools can actually discipline students. the problem is, karen, that some courts have found the other way. some courts have said when you are off campus doing things on social media it is protect. so, right now it is really something that many people think will go to the supreme court, the supreme court will finally decide, however, if you are a student i would recommend against posting such things on social media. >> some things we cannot joke about at all. what is interesting in this case there were two things
that led to police coming to the school and having the kids go outside be moved ape dismissed. this is next day where everybody is nervous you are a kid and you don't know how to react to something. you mix that line what you thought was a joke. so, you know, the thing about that -- go ahead. >> the thing is the bomb had in the been found there had been moving around of the kid. they have gone through the stadium. they thought there was a bomb in the stadium. bomb had not yet been found. it was not clearly a joke at the time. in fact had people at the school been concern that the bomb had nod been found and there was still a bomb. it is similar to bullying. we have seen situations where schools are at a real problem because they have these rules against bullying but yet they want to give students their first amendment rights especially if students are not in school n yen the courts say when you are threatening violence against another student they will air on the side of supporting the school and saying that the kid do not have a first amendment right in those situations. >> just yelling fire in the
crowded movie theater. thanks so much, attorney heather heat son for coming in we appreciate your insight as always. >> sound very good, dave, the the weather, it is raining, you say it is not going to get better necessarily today but giving us hope it the will get better later in the week so every area doesn't look like that the waterfall. >> that is right. >> my backyard, what do you mean. >> little extra water, yeah. well, we do need the rain. we have been dry but we have had enough for a while. i want to get some sunshine in here today. it could possibly come in later so no matter what events you have planned today you might to have plan for some rain. the here's one in philadelphia. >> hi dave and have one at fox 29 good day. we are having our first ever lego league expose today. >> we are hoping to get outside to play after. >> take away the rain. >> well said, you sound like

dead back to life, it is catch phrase that everybody is talking about. what are we really studying. >> what we are studying is very early stage exploratory trial, in 20 patients that have been recently declared brain dead from the definition of death but still on, life support where we are beginning to study the aspects of neuro and vascular regeneration in the brain stem. >> now in laymen's terms we are talking about bringing back to life but in laymen's terms you are talking about regenerating functioning brain cells. so in the licensing term it could potentially lead to that. >> in the licensing term yes, that is a possibility but right now it is very early stage study a and we're only beginning to get into the dynamics of what it means to regenerate nerves in parts of the lower brain that control your breathing and heartbeat. >> very early, as you said, in theory, how would this function to get people back to the point where they are functioning where they currently were not. >> there is a very gray zone that exists between the state of deep coma and what is defined as irreversible coma
or brain dead. our first steps forward are in bridging that transition back, to a state where somebody may have independent control of both rest celebration and heartbeat, and then ultimately, trickling up to higher functions of the brain. >> i can see you are very cautious about false hope for people but it is hope, i mean we have large numbers of people who suffer this level of trauma and have no hope that anything will happen, this could at least be a light at the end of the tunnel. >> absolutely, 60 million people daily, a year die around the world, main reason is because our brain dies. the cns is one of those unchartered territories of biology and we're really beginning to understand basics of what it means to begin to reagain rate it. >> i read that you are looking for volunteers obviously. they have a organ donation program but how do you find the people to help with this study and families have to be on board.
>> absolutely, these are patients solely in the icu at a point where a family is called in, and they will be told that they are at a stage where there is nothing else that can be done, you can choose organ donation or potentially this experimental program as an option. there may be a case where a family has a religious objection or medically it is not feasible, and this is an alternative that is available. >> as we wrap up just for clarity, in order to do this you had to overcome a series of ethical hurdles. people had to give you approval. >> ethical approval from the commit thee at the hospital where it will be performed and then we deal with the families, because we have an extensive informed consent process, so families will understand what this is really all about. >> we will be following. appreciate it. giving people some hope. thanks very much. >> karen? >> that blows my mind, doctor, thank you for your time. we appreciate it. 7:36. students hoping to graduate from one of our high schools in our area, in fact, all of

could see some more coming in and then spotty showers as we start to see the cloud break up just a little bit. there is the storm causing a all of this rain, it is getting kicked out by tomorrow, so we could start the day off tomorrow, and despite clear skies tonight, with a few more showers, that is pushing that storm out to sea, so you'll wake up to some more rain tomorrow but once that clears out bright sunshine and warmer temperatures for mothers day. temperatures up to 70 degrees. the just that early shower. maybe a few showers south on monday but overall not a bad day both monday and tuesday, showers will return wednesday, and thursday, could even see a thunderstorm on friday, so we are back to the rainy pattern but still not completely dry for the even of the week. >> thanks, dave. well, in new jersey goal, it is always to try to keep safe. >> proposed legislation lawmakers are working on that could protect you the next time you use uber or lyft. >> um-hmm.
