7:11 am
start talking to that one and one person caves. >> and that is what happened, this is a very unusual case. here's what i think was unusual about this case. michael slager took the stand and testified in his own defense. normally defendants don't take the stand. he was very emotional on the stand and said he wases in fear of his life. that got the to that one jury as of friday and they believed there was reasonable doubt did he this with malice of forethought. you have to have malice have fore thought when shooting that gun. and he believes that the officer, the officer when he testified that look i was in fear of my life. you didn't see all that tape. that is what he says. that cell phone video it didn't take into the whole experience it showed that one part. what the police officer said before the video came on there was an altercation between he and i and i was fearful of my life. >> i understand that but the final moment of his life he is running away. >> that is the problem here he was clearly running way, he
7:12 am
was clearly in threat to the police officer, he was 18 feet away and going in the opposite direction and that point the officer from those is 11 was the officer wasn't in fear of his life. >> with this mistrial, where do things stand now you? is he still in custody or can he walk out. >> they are going to retry him . but prosecutor here will try this case as soon as they can. they feel lake they will get a conviction eventually. >> with the mistrial they can start all over again and wipe a new and say we will deal with the new jury and see what happens. >> he is on trial in federal court in february for civil rights violations for which he can serve 30 years in jail. here's the headline out of the paper. bill cosby got bad news. >> yes, that is true. >> sorry cos jury gets to hear those lewd and and lude remarks talking about pills. >> this is where he testified previously in a deposition he
7:13 am
would give women trucks for sex. >> 2005 i thought he had a deal with the d.a. that if i tell what you really happens on those nights in my house, or her house i will never have that come back and haunt me that has been before the court before and judge said there was no quote unquote deal. so this evidence will come in. that issue has been resolved, in order, done issue. here's the case though next week and this is a huge reeling. next week they are having a two day hearing where they will decide if these 13 prior people complained about bill cosby whether they will be able to testify or not. i have already said mike, that is crucial ruling in the case. because if those 13 women are allowed to testify that bill cosby drugged them and had sex with them, it will be a very tough case for bill cosby. that is a crucial ruling. it will come next week in a two day hearing. we will see what happened. >> when will this ever happen. >> this trial is scheduled for june. that is why they are pretrial, rulings, and you know, bill
7:14 am
