8:11 pm
good to be here. >> are we on the verge of a coup? >> not clear. we have seen this movie so many times in thailand. it plays out in a similar way. why we see it is they never addressed the problem of corruption in thai politics, and the conflict between the rural area and the capital bangkok. the army, its stance, that will determine the outcome. >> let's talk about the corruption. what do you mean by the corruption in politics, how pervasive is it. >> it's wide spread. there are many countries in the world where democracy takes weird and wonderful forms. widespread vote buying by thaksin, who was found to be corrupt. >> he's a billionaire tycoon. >> all kinds of crimes committed by him, including crimes that

8:13 pm
let's listen in. >> the amnesty - what happened in thailand is people agreed, but not agree on the detail of the combination. that's why a lot of people view about the amnesty. >> there's not going to be anything more. there's rumours it may come back after 180 day. >> no, we accept that it's over. >> she's trying to calm the people there. is it enough? >> no, it's not. she's lost that ground. >> too late. >> look at her response to that question. there is a very serious issue about democracy and corruption in thailand. the army has always sorted out the problem, supported by the king. the king is now a man reveered in thailand as if he's a god.
8:14 pm
he's sick and reveered. let's see what happens next thursday. in the past he's stepped in to start things out. will that happen this time, i'm not sure. i don't think this time even though we have seen the movie a lot, it will be the same old solution. there has to be a longer term solution to the problem. maybe this is the time it will merge. >> meaning that this prime minister and her family no longer in charge. >> i don't think there's any doubt they can't go on. the problem is the way thai democracy is kucted. they are wonderful people, but are not getting this right. >> they are trying to change without question. >> ambassador richard butler, thank you for coming in. >> egyptian police and students clashed near cairo university. student are angry about the

8:16 pm
exclusively called marriage, and nothing else. that will be a mandate inside the constitution within the next couple of weeks or even by the end of this year. according to those who were against this referendum against this move. they are really disappointed by these results, because they feel they have been depressed and they've been oppressed by these results, and by the maimerity, because according to them this is first time for them to be legally sanctioned and that they are feeling really, really depressed because of these results. >> encouraging news about the 85-year-old american vet detained in north korea. the swedish ambassador to north korea visited merrill newman, and he is in good health. he's accused of decades old war

8:20 pm
>> activists say diagnosing and treating infections early can help to control the virus. these days there's a test people can buy and use at home. it's hoped it will reach 20% of americans who don't know that they are infected. despite advances like these, changes remain. >> h.i.v. is disproportionately affected. these people experience discrimination. that continues to include gay men of all races, women of colour, transgender women and people who inject drugs. >> there are troubling numbers. more men are having unprotected sex with other men. blacks make up nearly half the americans living with h.i.v. his panics one in five. bobby says he contracted the virus by abusing drugs and

8:31 pm
wrong. lisa stark reports from washington with more on how the investigation will go. >> this is the beginning of a lengthy investigation. the mta has recovered two event recorders, kind of like black boxes on aeroplanes, and it should tell them how fast the train was going, whether the engineer applied breaks. the engineer on the train was injured but did survive. they'll be able to talk to the engineer to find out what was going on as the train came into the track. all seven cars, plus the loko motive derailed. the injuries occurred in the first cars that flipped over on the side. the mtsc will want to know what were the survivability factors. why will those who died survive. they'll look at how the train was put together to see if there's indications of safety improvements. they'll be looking at the maintenance on the rails, the
8:32 pm
signalling systems and the mta itself. the rail road had a lot of problems, including another passenger train derailment in may. luckily no one was killed. a number of people were injured in that derail: near the same section of track a 10-car freight train derailed. it derailed this summer. they want to look at the culture to see if there's anything that needs to change from that aspect. the mtsb will look into the background of the crew operating the train. they'll want to know what the last 24 hours were like. did they get enough sleep, did they know this part of the rail road. were they well versed in this part of the track. there's nothing that tells you hey, slow down. you have to know the rail and the speed. they'll want to know if the engineer are on this train had a good idea of what he was
8:33 pm
supposed to do. a lengthy investigation will be on scene 7-10 days. it will take months to issue a final report. back to you. >> we are staying in new york city for a sunday night look at the week aha. incoming mayor bill de blasio may announce his pick for the city police commissioner. bill de blasio's top pick is said to be william bration, who served as new york's police commissioner from 1994 to 199 of. recently he's been with the los angeles police department. he would take over from current commissioner ray kelly. under his leadership crime has dropped. they have been accused of excessive surveillance and targetting muslims. s stop and frisk became a tactic for officers. the co-director of the liberty program in nyu, and we have eugene o'donnell from the college of criminal law.
8:34 pm
i want to start with you. you used to be a new york city police officer. is it a good idea for the new mayor to get rid of the police commissioner. >> i don't think there's chemistry there and i don't think the commissioner wants to stay. it's time to move forward. it will be interesting and crucial to the blaz administration to get the appointment like. the police commissioner place a significant role. on some days it's more difficult than the mayors. it will be a crucial, crucial, vital determ nant of how successful bill de blasio is. >> why is it critical for the country, honestly, for a strong person to lead the new york police department. >> new york is the largest police department by far in the country. as new york goes, a lot of police departments are looking to see how new york is conducting its police work.
8:35 pm
what tack tickets it's using, how it's dealing with minority communities. these things have a great influence on other police departments. it's important that this appointment be right. >> they are talking about a man named bill braten, the commissioner in new york. >> the new police officers has to do one weren't thing, rebuild relations with mine ority communities in the city. there has been a drop in crime. many credit bill braton in the first term for putting in place the systems leading to the drop of crime. >> you don't think ray kelly deserves the credit. >> no, absolutely. but many of the systems used by the n.y.p.d. were started by william bration when he was police commissioner. there's that factor. at the same time what's happened
8:36 pm
over the last decade is that the relations of the police with minor city communities have been shattered. it's true for the african american who have been targeted by stop and frisk policies, which have been excessive, and some 90% of the people stop and frisk by the n.y.p.d. are black or latino. then there's the surveillance problem which is coming up during the tenure of commissioner kelly, alienating those communities. we need the communities to trust the police. they are the ones that come forward with the information that the cops need. >> let me ask you about stop and frisk, eugene o'donnell. you used to be a police officers. a lot of controversy, and a lot say it's worked and crime has dropped. do you think it's a good policy? >> it's necessary to a degree. the real criticism that was legitimate is it was over-used.
8:37 pm
it became a tool that was counted. so the more of it that you did, the more credit was given to police commanders. you need a certain amount of it. it has presip to usually dropped. it's likely that it's taken up a lot of attention in the last couple of years. new york being new york, with a crisis a day, new challenges on the plate, that a year from now we won't be talking about stop and frisk. >> you don't think scaling back stop and frisk will lead to more crime. >> i think you have to be care: extremists thinking you need a direction, eliminating stop and frisk will not work. making it a numbers game was a bad idea. you have to leave open the possibility you'll do more in some places, less generally. there's no science to it. one of the things that was irresponsibly sold was the idea that a certain idea of stops and
8:38 pm
frisks would make the city safer. if you double it the city would be twice as safe. it was bizarre and shouldn't have been put out there. >> you mentioned the counterterrorism. some argue it's very successful since there's not been a major terrorist attack. what is it that needs to happen in that unit. i think it needs to scale back the activities. the unit targeted the communities, not based on a suspicion of wrongdoing. people were muslim. they went to the mosque, they went to a halal butcher shop. these are the things used to target communities. we need to go back it a place where people civil people when there was a reason to do so. they don't go around collecting everything from the halal food restaurants. >> be more focused on it.
8:39 pm
ooep if it leads to know terrorist attack. >> you are assuming there's a causation between the wide net. >> last year the uniform chief of the intelligence division said that they had not had a single in the seven years that he was there. there's a good reason to suggest that the n.y.p.d.'s intelligence operation - the unfocus the part has not been effective. >> moving forward, i'm keen to know your thoughts. he's considered to be a front runner for the new york city police department. what changes will be made about the men and women in blue? >> the most important change in that organization and the public is that people in the police
8:40 pm
department in the city of new york, most of them wish they never took the job, wish they could get out. moral is rock bottom. and brad is the right person. he's sensitive to that organizational stuff. he knows the job from the bottom up. there's what the org -- organisation gets. the disrespect inside the org faceation transfers to rough handling of new yorkers. the biggest complaint about the new york people is not about brutality, but in routine interactions they feel disrespected, hard done by. that's the most vital thing that bill braton can do. he came to new york as the chief of the transit police. i hope that will be a top
8:41 pm
priority and will pay huge dividends if they do a change in the way cops see themselves and cop satisfaction. how much can the commissioner change moral with the men and women on the street, how much much a difference can it make. >> you can speculate it can't be done. it was done dramatically, systematically. in his last tour as commissioner in the police department and chief of the transit police. he knows the police business. he understands all the preaching and commanding and ordering will not come to anything if the people do not buy in at the bottom. you talk about human dignity. the only way to achieve that is if the cops are treated differently. that's a strength. he doesn't have. there's issues there in terms of - that pfizer allieded to. some of the problems were
8:42 pm
created by comstat. in terms of the whole idea of understanding police work and the cops in the street, he has a unique and american policing perspective. >> and the last word? >> i think he brings a lot to the job. >> that sounds like a no. >> it's not a yes or a no. he brings a lot to the job. he knows the police department. and the other thing i would point out is the police department will be working with an inspector general as of the 1st of the new year. bill braton worked as the chief of the lapd with an inspector general success fully. there's a lot to be said for him. the other candidates are also good candidates. it's not clear who will be the next police commissioner. it's the end of an era. >> thank you both for speaking
8:43 pm
to us tonight. we appreciate it. >> and now in other news, vice president joe biden arrives in japan tomorrow, the first stop on an east asian tour. originally it was meant to promote a trade deal. last week china declared it controlled the area over the islands in the east china sea. the u.s. government told airliners to comply, but not military planes. >> a ninth body has been recovered from a crash site in glasgow. recovery efforts continued. a special service was held for all the victims at the city's cathedral, it's unclear what caused the accident. >> enter israel where anger is mounding against a plan to resettle thousands of people. 44,000 nomads live in the israeli desert. this winter the israeli

parliament is due to vote on a plan to resettle them. >> phil lavelle spoke to some who will be affected. >> they promised a day of rage and this is what it looks like. hundreds of israeli palestine bedouin are fighting police and the plans to e-victoria around 40,000 of them from their homes. 34 people were arrested during violence here in the negev desert as well as haifer and the west bank. police were attacked with rocks. authorities responded with tear gas, bullets. it's the morning after of the the negev is quieter. fighting is over. ramsay is a carr pepter. he has no intention fitting out a new home. he is happy and says there's no way he'll be leaving. >> translation: they want to
8:45 pm
e-victoria us and replace us with jews. we say it's okay to bring jews here, we'll live together. we refuse to leave eleave. >> this is where the bedouins leave, a series of small towns. this is where the israeli government wants to move them. an urban community which it says has better im unities. the plan is to build new jewish towns. at the heart of this is one question. that is this: who owns the right to all of that land. the bedouins say they do. they were here first before israel was created in 1948. they are not going anywhere. israel says it's basically a land grab. like it or not. they have got to go. >> the people are citizens. they deserve to live in conditions similar to those which you and i would like. and that is what we are doing. we are putting billions into a program which will bring to them
8:46 pm
education, health, electricity and running water and sewerage and the basic immunities which you and i expect of our authorities to give us. the policy of moving the bedouin will not become law until the kin es et passes it. it is expected to happen soon. the bedouins are determined to stay. israel is unlikely to change its position. >> the nfl regular season winds down. week 13 is separating the contenders from the pretenders. real-life imitates hollywood. fans remember "fast and furious" star paul walker who died in a fiery crash.
