7:11 am
wiggle room with moderate republicans whether it comes to bump stocks, more on that in a second. yesterday the president was not interested in talking about the politics of gun control and gun violence, he scolded the president when asked about it, on his trip to las vegas. really, on the other hands, embracing his role, comfort nerve chief. >> with the heroes, who ran straight into the gunfire, the president provided praise. >> we're defined by our love, our caring, and our courage. >> with those wounded, at the local hospital, he offered a warm smile, and thanks to the doctors who saved them. >> we met quite a few people, believe me, they're very lucky to be here. >> while the president spent hours in vegas, even driving past the crime scene, he didn't want to talk about what investigators are finding there. an arsenal of weapons, many modified legally to replicate the killing capacity after
7:12 am
machine gun. >> gun violence -- >> we don't talk about that today. >> democrats couldn't wait to talk about the weapons modification called bump stocks. >> why can't we keep a weapon from being g a military battlefield women on? >> while some republicans seem willing to talk about banning bump stalks, steve sole east, bodily wounded by a mass murder err, says new restrictions on guns aren't the answer. >> if you look at what happened in my case, you had people on site with guns to immediately counter the shooter and take him down. >> in the wake of the sandy hook, atlanta shootings, big move by democrats to, and then strong gun control advocate in the white house still as you know, un is successful in
7:13 am
producing anything meaningful on the issue. since then, the political climate for any type of gun control has only gotten tougher. >> tougher, that's for sure. >> thank you for. that will i watch you all the time on weekends, do great job. good to have you here in philly. >> kinds to say. that will glad to be with you guys. >> thanks. >> well, another fraternity at penn state suspended this morning. >> this is after student suspected every drinking was found unconscious. state college police say they found the 18 year old, passed out on a street last saturday. they believe he tripped and fell. and that's kind of thousand happened. but he's recovering at the hospital. and the university says, it is investigating the possible involvement of the frat delta delta. >> we have our legal analyst, ken rotweiler. specially with what happens hang with timothe pea as, a what, the fifth incident they've had at penn state? >> true. penn state reacting very quickly, immediately suspend in the fraternity, on interim suspension until they finds
7:14 am
out all of the fact of what happened. but fraternities have to learn can you not drink in the state of pennsylvania or any of the states in the united states until you're 21 years every age. and what's happening these kids are many coming out of high school, getting some freedom, living at fraternity house, 18 years old, drinking to eagle's ken there is has been going on. >> i know. >> forever. >> that's right. but now it is coming to the floor where people are getting hurt, you know, what happened to tim piazza, that whole episode is unbelievable. i think there is going to be a civil suit if it hasn't been filed already, wrongful death suit on his behalf. now there is legal action being taken against fraternities, against colleges themselves. penn state doesn't want to be in a position where they're going to be sued. so they're jumping on this immediately. and they're putting restrictions on all fraternities. >> these added restrictions happened after timothe piazza, we covered, that one every them no drinking at least until november 1st, trying to figure out what will be the long-term plan. i guess that means they're listening? >> let me tell you what struck me too. they are cutting down the
7:15 am
amount of social event they can have with alcohol. it used to be 45, a semester, dot math. forty-five a sim he iser? it basically goes september to december. that's lot. now they've restrict philadelphia saying you can only have ten. so the university is putting restriction on the fraternities trying to cur of this behavior. >> but did this happen at the fraternity house? >> off campus. >> that's right. >> are you telling me a fraternity and all of the brothers are supposed to get together all right, you're member our every our fraternity, i don't want you getting drunk and passing out anywhere in it town. >> not supposed to serve alcohol to anyone under 21. >> that's not the fraternity's fault. >> getting the alcohol at the from a fraternity, having kegs parties, now at penn state ruled out you can't have keg party any more. i mean, you have a keg, nobody is controlling that keg. people are going up, drinking, nobody check to go make sure that they're 21 years old at a fraternity party. they should be. i think they will be doing that now, but haven't been in the past. that's the problem. free flow of alcohol. >> just seems like it would be so hard to stop because even if you limited the number of social events, those are official event, they still get
7:16 am
together at so-and-so ' house. >> run over, get a keg. >> that's right. you're right there is has been going on forever, hard to stop, but penn state is doing all they can do to try to curb this behavior. >> do you think it would ever ends up, with no alcohol at all, the entire campus? >> i don't think that's ever going to -- >> sure? >> well, look. when you were a junior and senior you're two; you can drink. how do they prohibit going out in a state store, blinging it back to the room, and inviting the next-door neighbor had might be 18, 19 years old to join the party. >> don't they have dry party? the consequences will scare the kids enough not to do this? >> i don't want thereon campus. >> i guess downing that. the alcohol though is per vase enough our society. i don't think they will ever stop t but the institutions have to do whatever they can to prevent under age drinking. >> okay. >> okay? >> , that, ken. >> good seeing you guys, as always. >> our pleasure. did you see bob kelly? >> i did see bob. i saw bob kelly all last night at the sixers game. >> oh, you went to the sixers game? >> that's what you did last night. >> went to the sixers game,

7:29 am
to find smarter solutions. to offer more precise and less invasive treatment options than before. like advanced genomic testing and immunotherapy. see how we're fighting to outsmart cancer at
7:30 am
>> so we want to check back in on this accident that happened, fatal accident on the schuylkill, because it has been affecting people headed towards the airport this morning, if you are going eastbound, steve keeley been
7:31 am
there, giving us a update. steve? >> well, the closest yet you'll see a pennsylvania state police accident, reconstruction investigator here, real close to us, where he's standing where the white acura ended up, and all the way up, where you see the flashing lights, at the police van, that hill, where the motorcycle was, see harley davidson what's left of it on the back after tow truck, rider was on there and killed. now bee don't know if he collided with the seconds video we will show this white acura or whether this poor woman had come along and the rider supply had an accident all on his own and she may have just come along, hit the bike or run over him. we just don't have the answers yet. i don't know if the state police have the answers yet but doing all they can to get the answers a we approach five hours of these eastbound lanes being shutdown. bob you can see, they are doing due diligence, to figure out what the accident cause i
7:32 am
is, that's why that road is still shut down. >> unfortunately that was fatal crash, the reason for the closure all morning, we can see there the investigation. but traffic is back up for miles. coming eastbound, into philadelphia. here is a live look from skyfox. again, all traffic forced off at university, but traffic goes all the way back to city line avenue. so going to the maps. if you are coming into philadelphia, right now, here is the accident scene, bumper to bumper, city line, all traffic forced off at university. having domino effect for folks trying to cross down on the vine street expressway, if you are coming into the city here is a couple of options. going to university city, maybe headed down to chop for a checkup with the kids, exit at 30th street. and use market street, to get into university city. if you are trying to get to the airport, or into south philly this morning, use the vine street expressway. take that, leaving king of
7:33 am
prussia or the suburbs another option blue route southbound lanes of 476, heavy, half hour to make that trip, but at least it is open. and that will get you down to 59, and then north 95, into the airport, and you can even reconnect with south philadelphia, or the bridges from there. the only good thing here is that at least looks like nice day out there. >> well, it is. we just have few more clouds. going to be bit warmer today. still need that jacket this morning. with temperatures in the 50's, 60s, at least, it is not as chilly as it was, and notice budd had i the flyers cap on as well. 62 degrees in philadelphia. , the 67 -- 76 the high yesterday, little warmer and a little more humid, high temperature later on of 83 degrees, we're see how warm it get coming up in the seven day forecast and the weekend. >> talking about the vaguest investigation, about the shooting, the massacre out, there so yesterday i was really the daily news. and there is talking about
7:34 am
seeking answers, there was the cover, the rally we had the other night. >> oh, thomas payne plaza. >> exactly, yes. so then i opened it up to an opinion page. and there is our friend, solomon jones, wrote this arm. i stopped and looked at the headline. vaguest killer viewed differently because he was a white man, then i kind of highlighted a couple of paragraphs here. one says: we see america's reluctance to condemn paddock, the shooter, as an animal, thug or terrorist, as black criminals are so often labeled. the difference is stark. >> then went on to say even russian understanded an image of white americans with guns is considered patriotic, while the inspector of african-americans with guns is considered frightening, the difference is stark. >> so, i got stopped on the street about three, four times, solomon. welcome to "good day" philadelphia, good to have you here.
7:35 am
>> high. >> from wrd. saying the same thing. so, explain more what you mean. >> i mean that when black people do things, we are blamed as a people, and when white people do things, they are blamed as individuals. if that. and i think that there is more of a a tendency to give leeway both in the media, and i think in the law enforcement community. i think that these things are treated differently, based on skin color. and i know people have said to me, you know, this is the wrong time to say this. you know, 59 people are dead. i said in the piece, one of the paragraphs, you didn't highlight. >> yes. >> that of course i feel bad for those people who died, and of course i'm praying for those who died. but here is the bottom line. when something like this happens, the black community collectively, the first question that we ask, is was
7:36 am
that person black? because we know that we will be blamed as a collective if that person was. however, if the person was white, they'll be look at as an individual, there will be all casino every questions asked, all kind of excuses made, and so there is an inequality there in terms of how these things are treated. >> so solomon, what do you say to the people who may here this, each situation has been different, eve different backgrounds, the fact when you bring enough, i know you mention the article, wasn't called a terrorist, well, the fbi, all of the investigators err this say they found no connection to terrorism. that's why they didn't mention it. >> right. and you know, the definition of terrorism is of course violence with a political end. and so we don't know if ther is a political end yet. but we do know that if a person is muslim, if a person is brown, if a person is from another place, then that word is used a little bit more freely. it is used a little bit more
7:37 am
early, before all of the questions are answered. so i think what i'm saying in that piece is that rather than trying to ban people from places where the people are black and brown, rather than banning people from africa and asia, and south america, maybe we need to look at the people who dot most mass shootings here in america, and that's white males. >> yes, that is for sure, white males. >> so are you talking about the media is portraying this in the wrong way, or because i actually heard somebody who knew this guy, oh, he is a gentle giant. are you talking about the media? are you pointing the finger at us? >> or people's perception of what happened? >> well, i'm member of the media. so any time that i point the finger at the media, i'm pointing the finger at myself. think that i that as a society, we really need to come to grips with the fact that we cannot look at people
7:38 am
based on their physical characteristics. whether they're white, black, or their ethnicity, whether they're hispanic or not, their religion, whether muslim or not. then make judgements based on. that will i think if we're really going to be safe as society, we really need to look at people as individuals, whether they're white, black or otherwise and judge them based on their actions, there is no way in the world if this guy was black, i'll just keep it real f this guy was black, no way in the world he would be able to emmaus that many weapons, ooh or more weapons, thousands of rounds of ammunitions, sneak 19 weapons into a hotel. it is just not going to happen. >> yes. >> so, i think that if everybody is treated the same, then maybe we can avoid more catastrophes like this. >> i will say. >> this i've noticed over the years of doing this, any time the word thug is used, i can guarantee you it is a story about a black man. >> ya. >> ya. >> ya. and it is unfortunate.
7:39 am
i think that, you know, there is never a good time to talk about things like this. >> no. >> but i think that in this particular situation, there are some lessons that we can get out of this. we always go back and look at why did this happen? well, one of the reasons why these things happen, unfortunately, when somebody like a steven paddock is engaged in these things, is that nobody's watching him because he's not the person who is considered suspicious. he's an older white man with money. nobody's watching him. unfortunately some of the things that he did, somebody should have been watching. >> well, i'm sure you've been getting a lot of feedback after this came out in the paper. so we have some emails that we want to see to get your response to. one said i just red your article, 59 people dead. all you can do is bring race into the equation. enough already. racism will never die. while people like you continue to fan the flames. it is a national tragedy. white, black, purple. >> let's do another one here. all i can say is can you be more obviously racist, and
7:40 am
then one last, the lentz of racism there because you look for it whether you care as much about the 57-58 murders in chicago in september as much as you do the change, the chance to disparage anything white. i'll begin to respect anything you have to say. i bet you got a lot of that. >> i did. did i get a lot of. that will i find that interesting that it is my fault that racism exists. right? it is my fault for saying something about it. and because i say something, i perpetuate t if i would just be quiet, not saying anything about it, then racism would go away. it is like a festering sore, right? like you would just ignore it, and somehow it would go away. now, if you ignore it, it causes an infection, and that infection eventually killings you. >> yes. >> so there is no way in the world that we should ignore these things, we should talk about these things, be frank about it, so we can come up
7:41 am
with a solution. >> i agree with you. solomon, thank you for joining us. i know he has to get back to his show there at wurd. >> what is a better time to talk about this kind of stuff than right after -- >> like fresh on your behind? >> two weeks ago from now, we won't be talking about it, forget it. 7:41, get on twitter, react to that, i know you will. forget the cell phone. you know, texting and driving. there is something apparently that's distracting us just as badly as our phone inside your car. we will tell you what it is and stop it. >> and while were you sleeping, the flyers opened their season on the west coast. we will tell you what happened with we come back. ♪ ♪
