5:02 pm
kind of message? >> i don't know. i don't know how to read it. what i know is the noose is such a painful symbol, that, to me, this really was a very hurtful moment. >> reporter: who do you think would do such a thing? >> i think, we have no idea. was it a kid who thought this was an interesting prank? was it somebody who felt that this museum was a symbol of an america that maybe they didn't agree with? but all i know is that is reminds me why this museum is so important. >> reporter: lonnie bunch would not talk specifics about security. he did call it one of the safest museums in the country if not the world. inside and out there are protection, cameras, people with weapons, and security you don't see. now here's something positive about this hateful act. our interview from our off script broadcast had been in the works for quite some time okay? lonnie bunch and i were

appears out of nowhere and tells the director of the african-american museum of history and culture, you have to get out there, because scores of smithsonian employees had gathered outside in a show of support and needed to see and hear from him right away. i followed along behind and recorded the scene on my iphone. >> i am so moved that you are all here. as you know, we are a family and it is so wonderful to us to see everybody come together at a time of pain, but a time that reminds us that the smithsonian is at its best when it helps people confront the issues that have divided us. when it helps people realize by working

get to make america better. >> an incredible diverse scene. u.s. park police are investigating this noose incident. we are asking for some word from them, where does the probe stand? thus far we haven't heard anything. dray you are going to hear from people that gathered and it is really heartwarming. >> if it was meant to divide us, it showed we are united against hate. >> i would hope so. coming up at 5:30 we'll talk about the other incidents involving nooses in our area and the last known man in maryland killed by lynching. >> bruce and andrea, thank you. here is another important moment taking place outside of the white house. we are able to show you live pictures of a protest going on there, this coming several hours after the president announcing the u.s. will
5:05 pm
withdrawing itself from the paris climate accord, now joining syria and nicaragua as the only countries. the president argued the climate agreement is bad for american workers but said he is open to negotiating a new dole. >> reporter: so we are getting out. but we will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that is fair and if we can, that is great. and if we can't, that's fine. former president obama actually released a statement about this, saying donald trump's decision reflects the absence of american leadership. german chancellor anglicans la americaical says she regrets the u.s. move. this quickly became the top trend on google and smithfield, eileen saying he is treating his presidency like a business agreement. did you want work like that. while richard wrote thanks for doing the job obama should have done. those were

hundreds of comments. on our wusa9 facebook page. right now police in the philippines are looking for the people responsible for gunshots, explosions and fire at a casino resort in manila. at least 25 people were hurt. gunmen wearing masks and black shirts opened fire inside the hotel. police in manila say they haven't found any terrorist ties, but a u.s. group says an isis operative claimed responsibility for the attack. right now we are learning new details about the man accused of having guns and ammo in his car at dc's trump international hotel. ryan moles made his first court appearance this afternoon. drew? >> reporter: yeah andrea, we are actually still waiting for brian moles to make his first appearance here at
5:07 pm
court. when he does, we are hoping to get those new details about his intent and why dc police, the u.s. secret service were so concerned. now here is what we know at this point. a tipster called pennsylvania state police early, early yesterday morning, and said that brian moles, an er doc, a dog trainer, a former navy corpsman, was headed to the trump international hotel and that he may have evil intent. the tipster told the police he had been texting and e-mailing with moles and that moles had been talking about the oklahoma city bomber timothy mcveigh, and that he had weapons. the police and the secret service swarmed the hotel, they found holes's car in the garage at the hotel in plain view. police found a bush master
5:08 pm
15 assault-style weapon. and when they searched that vehicle, they say they also found a .40 caliber glock handgun and 90 rounds of ammunition for both guns. now the reason that we are here is beth to get a good look at him and to get a good look at what are called probable cause charging documents here. in those documents we expect the police to really lay out exactly the nature of the threats. moles's family can't believe this. his friends can't believe this. they say it can't be true he had evil intent. his facebook profile his other social media profiles suggest he was actually a fan of president trump and not a fan of hillary clinton. but again, we are hoping for some more answers, more details, when we finally get ahold of that probable cause document. live at dc superior court,

we are following reaction to our reporting on lawsuits alleging serious misconduct in the maryland police department. so far town leaders are treating this issue as if it is radioactive. they won't touch it. scott broom is live with us to talk more about this. great report scott. >> reporter: part of that is because this is all still in litigation. i'm not hearing much but crickets. the mayor and town council and other leaders have adopted pretty much a silence policy on these allegations against the police chief and the police department here, which have festered away since the very first complaint was filed in 2011 and it all still has not been resolved. the most serious allegations are leveled at the police chief harley show the third. he is accused by the wife of a former officer of sexually assaulting
5:15 pm
then the chief is accused of retaliating when she complained by conducting a campaign of alleged harassment and humiliation against any police officer, including her husband, who dared to support her. so far three officers claim, in lawsuits, they were targeted for retaliation and fired during the years of fallout. the department's second in command had his job eliminated. all of them are suing. but some of the ex officer's credibility is likely to be an issue. courts have ruled three were fire for good reasons like falsifying patrol records and flunking an improvement plan. the tangle has included allegations that shaw looked the other way when officers that supported him engaged in serious misconduct, like allegedly being involved from a dwi accident. then there is the claim made by ex officers that shaw directed officers to use racial profiling on patrol. >> trust me man, i was getting harassed over here. >> reporter: that is the part of our reporting that seems
5:16 pm
but if you want to talk about it with someone on camera, good luck. this plan was reluctant to show his face because he says he is afraid of retaliatoryiation. >> i live right here. every time they see me they stop me for silly stuff. profiling. >> reporter: viewers questioned police with comments like none of this surprises me at all. if you don't live here you know to stay away. keep rob shaw says he can't comment on the lawsuits because litigation is still ongoing. one newly elected council member did respond by phone, saying he couldn't comment on the allegations either, but note i go the chief has recently called for racial bias training. quote i support the chief's call for racial and implicit bias training said julian ivy who made police accountability a top priority in his campaign for town council. just a few moments ago, by e- mail, a state representative, a delegate who represents this
5:17 pm
fennel. she thinks there should be an independent, outside investigation of these allegations, regardless of litigation that's going on. i want to point out before we go here, the chief rob shaw, according to town leaders here, has done a good job at reducing crime over the years, he clearly has the support of both the mayor and the town council despite these allegations, and the mayor believes that the truth will come out when all of this is eventually litigated in court and a lot of that is going to happen later this year. scott broom wusa9. thank you scott. a jury trial is scheduled for one of the days in october. attorneys are seeking to have the other lawsuit in the case thrown out by a judge, a hearing on that matter is scheduled for june 20th. you know after days and nights of stormy weather,
