7:27 am
is there usually no mistakes. things will work smoothly. that computer doesn't call out sick and i win in the end. the this is thinking that is going on in many places including wendy's. later this year they will start to roll out self-serving kiosk in the stores across the country and most wendy as are franchises. >> liking to go wawa. you put in your order. >> yes, i have not been to wawa in ages. >> yes. >> it would be like that then. >> hold on, lauren. are you sure this isn't just an excuse to automate. >> partially. but i think this is going to have unintended consequences because everything is automated. people will create real human interaction. you might see some of the old school places, who are kind of not welcoming computers at all get really popular. human beings will want contact with other human beings and gravitate to those places. >> i don't know. >> this whole computer thing. >> i was in the fast food place the other day, everybody in there was miserable and
7:28 am
surly. sometimes i would rather talk to a machine. >> people want to talk to a person when there is a problem. i want to talk about when my order is wrong, what do i do. >> yeah, right. that makes sense. >> i don't know, it is for fast food workers demanding higher wages because company always finds a way paying people more money especially around small businesses when really operating on slim profit margins to begin with. >> true. >> so, sue, the dry cleaners. >> i have to find my other sleeve. >> bye, lauren. >> have a good weekend. >> you too. >> bad news for local college graduates, we have to rectify this problem, why you may want to move out of the fill a area. that is not an option for a lot of people. if you cannot move out to start your career, we will negate this problem for you. and yes, it is friday the 13th. are you superstitious? when your right palm inches,

7:30 am
7:31 am
7:32 am
the whole thing may have been a big mistake. plus a major order expect from the obama administration, message delivered today in regards to bathrooms and gender identity. and it involves our schools, across the country. 7:32. man, is that going to create a debate this morning. hey sue. >> we have no debate bit, rain is coming and bus stop buddy is ready for it. we are dry for now. bus stop buddy has some rain gear with him. temperatures are mild though, a mildest morning of the week. we are in the 50's and 60's. you can see there the cold front, well, you cannot see the front but you can see the rain associated with it. it is in the western part of the state moving towards central pennsylvania, heading here real soon but we are still not seeing too much in the way of rain but the clouds are starting to increase in advance of the rain and we will see we're socked in olde city with 61 degrees to start your day, and 73 by the middle of the day and that is when we expect if you get a
7:33 am
thunderstorm, that is when it will happen. a few left over showers towards evening but we should be able to get phillies game in tonight and whatever you are doing this evening as well. sunset time bob kelly, 8:08. >> make sure you have the the dollar for the usher in phillies game because you'll need your seat wiped off this afternoon from the rain. good morning northeast philadelphia southbound i-95 stacked up from the the betsy ross bridge from an accident in the background taking out what would be the left lane there. right near the betsy ross bridge. we are seeing volume coming in here on the 42 freeway. we have an accident in that same area northbound 295 on the ram tops 42 in bellmawr. now new jersey transit using shuttle buses on the atlantic city line. services suspended between philadelphia and pennsauken because of the delair bridge has had some issues. it the is just stuck in the upright position, and the dad vail regatta taking over our city both today and tomorrow welcome to all of the folks in
7:34 am
town and that leaves the kelly drive closed, to vehicle traffic, during the morning and evening rush hours, today and all day tomorrow, so martin luther king drive will take that volume. mostly pushed on to the schuylkill expressway. mike and alex, back over to you. i remember back in the 60's, hearing about a situation in manhattan, in new york city. i believe 60's or maybe 50's. a woman was brutally murdered. people were hearing it from buildings. nobody went down to help her. >> they called 911 or they thought someone else called 911. >> we didn't have 911. nobody called police. nobody helped her. all these year later, the same thing is happening but now we have cell phone video. this video was sent to us via our fresco app. it is raising questions. it shows people standing by and a lot of them, some laughing, not stepping into help.
7:35 am
as a man for 20 minutes, beats on a woman on the street in kensington. >> video is hard to watch. victim was hospitalized but dawn timmeney went out to the 200 block of ontario street to try to figure out exactly what happened. >> reporter: man who shot this video of the brutal beating on the side of the street does not want his face shown, on camera but did talk to us. >> the guy was on top of the girl and just beating on her. >> reporter: woman was on the ground and you can see the man repeatedly slapping her and punching the victim. witness who shot the video said the beating went on for some time, maybe 20 to 30 minutes. >> did anybody try to help would the man. >> no one. just standard. they were laughing and just standing around like a normal day, you know, like nothing was even happening. >> reporter: did you try to help her. >> no, i was just doing the video. i was just recording, now. i didn't want to get in it. >> reporter: someone did call police. officers responded and they say they caught up to the guy
7:36 am
and said he was one assaulted. >> male gave a completely different story. it goodies thing this video was sent to us because we sent police back out there. >> reporter: lieutenant john stanford says video is very disturbing and says the fact that in one stepped into help is equally appalling. >> there is ten individual watching this and five males watching this and in would be intervening and a female being beat this way in the middle of the street in the middle of the day. >> reporter: we don't know why no one jumped in and whether they feared for their own safety as the man who shot the video tells us he did. >> i didn't want to jump in and be a hero and just get hurt, you know. it is bad out here. >> reporter: do you know the girl. >> no, i do not. i'm used to seeing stuff like that around here. it is sad. >> very sad. >> good to see you. >> good to see you too. >> hi, i understand people being afraid but there were so many adult male there that if you got four or five of them together and rushed the dude
7:37 am
and knocked him over, that didn't even happen. >> you know what, there is a thing called bystander effect which is, very prominent when there are more than one person around, bearing witness to violent. >> what sit bystander effect. >> yes, more people are in a group, the less there is a chance for a person to step in. >> because you have passed the responsibility. >> exactly. >> they will do it. >> or people feel like their shared responsibility. i don't have to take initiative to do that. also people feel like if i step in am i making right decision or wrong decision. >> how about if one guy makes a move to help do you think other ones would have the bystander of helping maybe. >> could be. it is a connection of what one person doing one thing and then we jump in but if there are people that are not jumping in, that could be a problem for person being victimized. >> and then someone else, those this video this he said what if they have a gun, or fight you off. >> i call it fear factor.
7:38 am
people fear retaliation or they feel if they step in there is something that will happen to them. >> well, yeah. >> they did say somebody call police but you don't know who did that and how long it took because this happened for 20 minutes. i think we need to pay attention to is we don't bear witness to violence every day all day but in communities where there is feeling like there is no hope and people are desensitized to violence often times this is what they are seeing is their normal. >> i think we're seeing that certainly in this country by now. >> yes. >> desensation, desensitized, too many violence in the world. >> yeah, and so subsequently it becomes normal and so we say this is appalling that no one would step in but if you see this day in and day out, and you have a sense of hope, desperation and despair in your community where you don't feel like people will step in, that becomes a problem. you know, there is that feeling that we're already hopeless. no one really cares about our community. why should we care. >> even more than that for
7:39 am

7:40 am
murdered in front of the 38 people. >> where were the police. >> only one woman ultimately called police, but, they heard her. they happened her happening in the alley, in one went out. >> do you remember years ago community policing meant police were walking around and they knew everybody in the community. you didn't to have wait for 20 minutes to call police, they were already there. >> good to see you, doctor. >> 7:40. could summer olympics being postpone? one professor say it is time to stop the real olympics because of the zika virus. sick a.
