fired from the north charleston police department, and today they reacted to the indictment,. we're going wait for the criminal trial, and the family going to wait to see if the city and the police department and the chief are going to accept responsibility because this entire situation should never have occurred. i'm the younger brother and, this morning the grand jury made a decision to indict him for murder and we're happy
about that. the prosecutor said she will not seek the death penalty he faces as minimum of 30 years in prison. another case, tension between police and the african-american community more fallout where an officer drew his gun at a pool party full of teens. outrage after police clashed with teens. this simply could have been handled different by this officers asking them to get off the property. but this officer didn't do that and as corporal, he should know what needs to be done and how it should be done. what he did was caught on the cellphone video. on friday, the police responded to calls after disturbance after a fight broke out. when they arrived and some start running and a couple chase
after them and, you can see one dive into a body roll. don't take off running. okay. most officers remained calm except for one. get on the ground displivment told you to stay. get down on the ground. the officer is corporal eric detained several young men, and at first he wield his flashlight, and then he draws his pistol. and two boys who swung around him and goes back to the young girl wearing only a what bikini and he slams her head into the ground. on your face. and she was later released to her parents. i thought he were saying rude stuff and he grabbed me and he twisted my arm and i was like telling him, get off me, because my back was hurting. and now other parents are speaking out against the police,
like the father of this young girl who ran to help her friend. my daughter came in and he just punched her to the side. i don't like grown men touching my gears- he was suspended. a full investigation is underway. suspension is not going to cut it. i'm not indicting the entire police department. i saw some people doing the right thing and this guy is out of control. and i'm not going to stop until he is fired. he made one arrest, the a.c.l.u. of texas is calling it hostile and unnecessary and adding increasing in this country, we're seeing protecting and serving white communities and criminalizing black communities. use that a little later.
thank you. there have been more than 1,000 shootings in chicago five people were killed and 33 others injured. and the chug tribune keeps tallies and it has jumped from 924, from this time last year and, 820 deaths the year before that. a new study finds that kids, 1-4, have been exposed to violence before they turn 18. randle has more. we're not talking about organized exposure to weapons the research is focused on negative exposure, that has the potential to cause harm. it's no news that any child confront we had a negative experience is a victim. what's new is that it occurs so frequent licks across america the survey found that more than
17-and-a-half million youths have been exposed to violence, involving a weapon either as a witness or a victim. of that number,2 million were assaulted, with guns or knives, and highly lethal and did not include sticks and bottles. researchers found that children, in low income, and high crime communities were more likely to be impacted, by negative exposure to weapons. so a ruling from the supreme court today about passports planning to americans living in jer ru siyou mean, and what is this case? this case was brought by the family of a boy who is 12-years-old. and he was born in jerusalem and, they wanted his passport to read his birth as place as is
real and that goes against a longstanding policy. they won't weigh in, who legally has control of jerusalem in a peace deal is reached. right around the time, that he was born, in 2002, congress, passed their own law saying that passports could read is real. this case has gone to the supreme court and it is a fight about the sovereign reality of israel and it's a battle between congress and the presidency. today the supreme court sided with the power of presidency in a 6-3 decision, say the passport will not read israel. this affects him and about 50,000 other americans but it has broader implications. what does this really mean
for the power of the president in this area? well the justices who ended up making this decision, said it didn't make sense to have a passport passport policy in conflict with the administrations policy, not just something that's done by the break practice administration and, bush administration and others believed in it. it wasn't anything in on the nitty-gritty of jerusalem but the bigger picture. justice kennedy said, recognition is a topic, when they must speak with one voice and that must be the president. the chief justice write this, the court case, for the first time in our history of allowing the president to defy an act of congress.
so, is the court, and i think i know the answer, is the court expected to reach any other decisions this week? well they haven't announced another date that they will announce the decisions. so we're watching for next week. but things are influx, and we're in the crunch-time of the court. they come out and we still have 20 cases that they have to announce the decisions in. two of the biggest the fight over obamacare and also, one that could be the ultimate case on gay marriage. president barak obama reiterated strong support for ukraine, and will continue sanctions against russia, and mike joins us now were there any new ideas put forward here on how to resolve situation in ukraine? i wouldn't say new ideas. it was more of what we have been hearing for the last year, since
russia moved into ukraine and a flareup, and a violation after peace agreement cease fire that was put in the place in the capital back in march everyone but the russians blame the prorussian sep par tits and say it's ukraine that is provoking more fighting. even the president meeting with other leaders, the president was on mission, he wanted to keep everyone in line. some of the sanctions that were imposed, were going to be expiring and, they want to keep them in place, they have not bunched at all over the course of this time, and the russian economy has suffered and he wants to keep them on, to try to get putin to reverse course. there was discussion about additional steps that we might
need to take if russia working through sep partists doubled down on aggression, inside of ukraine. those discussions are taking place at a technical level, not yet at at political level. the first goal, going into the council meeting, is just rolling over the existing sanctions. president barak obama had sod harsh words for putin, as a dream to recreate the soviet empire. additional steps what might additional steps be? well, you know, in the g-7 they put on the a written statement, included in that, a threat more saber rattling to impose further sanctions, on
russia if they do not reverse course and there's been a continued call, here in the united states, and ukraine for arms lethal aid so they could defend itself and, so far the president barak obama administration has resisted those calls. while at the summit, he met with the iraqi prime minister, and the the two discussed isil advances and, he admitted there's no concrete strategy for defeating isil yet. are we going to see more u.s. boots on the ground, in the way of trainers and advisers? well there could be a few more although the president said he believes that iraqi troops properly trained and equipped are every bit the match for isil fighters and, they have to find a way to train them faster, and get them to the front lines.
the u.s. has 3,000 troops in iraq as part of that training mission and, it is possible they may need to tweak that. the real problem is the lack of iraqis to go through training. he is pushing iraq to produce more recruits so they can be turned into troops, that can take the fight. the pentagon has asked -- the president has asked the pen take gun to come up with a plan to speed up and increase that training. it's a work-in-progress. when a plan is present to me by the pentagon then i will share it, we don't yet have a complete strategy because it requires commitments on the part of the iraqis as well, about how it takes place. the republicans on capitol
hill were quick to pick up on that we don't have yet a complete strategy, and the fact that the iraqis have to do somethings for the strategy it take hold. there is a strategy, a three part strategy, train more troops empower the sunnies, and the way they did during the anbar awakening and look at the border between turkey, and syria, where a lot of foreign fighters are going into syria and, going into iraq, and reenforcing them. that's the 3-point strategy. it may not be a successful one. yeah, the president probably think it should be a little bit better. today, the u.s. army's website was hacked. what can you tell us about that? it was hacked by someone who put some messages up saying you have been hacked and, it was a
protest against the united states training of rebels in syria. looks like it was from the syrian electron nibble army. the army said it took it down, it was a public site. it's embarrassing but not a security risk and the last time i checked, the site was still not back up. all right. thank you. the tsa which screens airline travelers as well as two million or so workers failed to identify 73 employees with ties to terrorism, they have been vetting workers, and they don't have the complete database, the report released by the homeland securities general comes days of an agents fails to find mock weapons during another

belgium police say they have detained 16 people, it was prompted from people returning from syria and word of a possible attack, in belgium. turkey's election has given a surprise boost to the nation's pro-kurdish party. they gained 80 seats stripping the ruling party of a simple majority. in turkey's largest kurdish city, there are hopes, that the
party into parliament will bring new momentum, into a stalled peace process. 40 years of fighting has cost 40,000 lives. everything should be done for the peace process, we all live under same plan. they should keep their promises for freedom and religion, and when people get more powerful, sometimes they don't keep their promises, and they disappointed us. the image of h.d. p. leaders is woven in carpet and hanging for sale alongside other heroes is, an indication of how much hope they have in this leader. he's led a prokurdish party for the first time in modern
history. we have economic problems in turkey. and we have to solve the problem because if you don't people will go into the street again. minority groups, were also persuaded had to thro their support into the h.d. p. to get 13% is remarkable. but if no government is formed, and, the h.d. p. will have to pull p the same thing all over again. they will have to work hard to make sure kurdish representation isn't short lived egypt is hosting a two day conference for syrian opposition groups aimed at trying to resolve the crisis.
prime minister is calling for settlements and syria has been in turmoil, since the uprice in 2011. more than 2,000 people have been killed and arab sprng was inspired by the one in egypt that toppled mubarak and that led to the election of he will sees see as president and marks one year, and now looking back over the past year. he rose to power, in two stages, first in a coup against the first democratic president morey, in 2013, the country descended into violence and thousands of people were killed and, elsewhere, as they staged peaceful sit ins and morey was jailedtion along with the untear
muslim brotherhood. the following year, he ran for office, and he received 96% of the vote. no real campaigning. by the end of his first year, in power, 44,000 political opponents and activists are jailed and cracked down, on the media, 48 journalists were jailed and dozens received sentences. human rights is the worst era. people killed in less than 10 hours in 2013, and you have numbers of executions, unprecedented. and we're talking about it in the hundreds and 106 including that. he did promise to create
stability, and violence been and kidnappings, are a daily occurrence. it is at the forefront of the people's minds including cairo and that's why the business community is backing a plan to build a new capital city, they have promised more than 20 billion dollars and have pledged more to assist. egypt's economy is in dire straits, due to the policies of president. he's trying to employ, conflicts with the military's interest and having no taxations and having land rights and come tum and
exchange rates and makes the fee competition. he pledged to improve living conditions, in two years but cuts to food, and it has failed. pushing more than 40% of e jif shans be below the poverty line. there is also an energy crisis despite the fact that egypt has one of the largest national resources and promises of more jobs, but they have failed to materialize. the expansion has been presented, yet, for many people, their standard of living has failed to improve and others it has deteriorated. with the recent wave of deaths, critics accuse the government of
using the judiciary to punish the people. they will complain about the recovery are told to act accept it. 7 years have passed, the financial crisis rocked america and the world, and many who lost their jobs and homes are still picking up the pieces all these years later and before you think the big bank, that nearly imploded the system, have gotten off, they are paying, and that's according to a new report. i need to hear more about this. ally,. before i give you this information, most of these are public companies so you're paying. global big bank have she would out 3 billion in legal costs, in 2010. not much happened, before then.
16 banks out that much more lawyers, finds judgments and settlements. and all of those legal costs went to settling criminal and civil charges since the end of the crisis, in 2009, that's according to a london think tank. litigation shot up by 60 billion in the last year alone. we have seen a lot of activity. legal problems and cost are nowhere near over for the bank. they nearly implode the financial system by marketing toxic investments that were all tied to the housing market and since then, the bank have had to contend with charges of other things. interest rate, and in light of all the charges these 300 billion in legal costs are likely to get bigger. so if you don't want to continue to pay these fees and
pay these legal fees then you change your way. is there any sign that these big banks are thinking of reforming their ways. this gets to me, because many bank executives act as if, irregular charges and they refer to them as legacy issues and these are real word that's they use. the problem is, that we have uncovered a lot of post crisis scandals, the lon dollar whale scandal,. the currency man anybody pew lacing. doesn't seem like it is being changed. years of fines and regulations and response to a financial crisis. some politicians now think that it is time to go easier in the banks, and this report suggests that bank have a long way to go. even in the last presidential election, they thought there
should be less regulation, your food safety and banking. good to see you. and you can watch alley on target weeknights at 10:30. nearly 6 million people have watched u-tube video of police breaking up a party and what it says about the racial relations in america. newly released surveillance video, a terror suspect shot.
this clip. it clarifies what happened but not completely. the video is silent and hard to see. but it clearly shows 6 officers showing approaching him last week in boston. they step back and then open fire hitting 6-year-old in the front not in the back as his family had alleged. there were multiple requests for him to put down that weapon. officers got within four feet of him and moments after he fell, a school bus passed, the video does not clearly show that the suspect as police say was carrying a large military style knife. this unraveled that i believe, my officers, acted response ably. it is far from clear. saying it shows he was breaking no laws when they attempted toed to restrain him.
we couldn't see clearly whether he was brandishing a knife. and it was very far. so we can be clear as to say what transpired. authorities have been tracking him for months. influenced by isil, he was close to carry out a plan to decapitate officers. his nephew has been arrested. he said i got a tool good for exaferring. one of many sympathizers, and it is tracking in all states. we are monitoring them for any type of action. any type of mobilization factors. we're not taking a chance. they approach him only to talk and learn about his intenses not to arrest him and he refused to
surrender. a former police officer in south carolina has been indicted in the shooting dead of an unarmed man. he has been in jail, since april 7th. as he ran away, after a traffic stop. you can see here, the shooting was caught on camera. despite intense publicity on the case. they say there was an abundance of evidence for the grand jury to sort through. just because you have video in a case doesn't mean it is over. when you think about all the bank-robberies and we have video. but certainly, as a prosecutor, if we can have a case that depicts the crime and we aren't having to rely just on people's perception, the jury can make up their own mind. a south carolina prosecutor, says she will not seek the death penalty. lets bring in trisha rose.
director for the study of race, in america. she joins us. good to see you. we'll roll in some of this video, i know you're familiar with. i want to share with you this statement from the texas a.c.l.u. calling the corporal's actions here, hostile and unnecessary and adding here, increasingly in this country we are seeing two kinds of policing protect and serving the white communities and criminalizing and controlling the black communities. what is going on here? we talked about it. i know you have given it some thought. yeah. well that's a terrific, and consize statement. protect and serve. and criminalize and control. and the racial difference. but this isn't a new distinction. this has a long pattern, the
police forces have long been established, native americans african-americans, as a group some there is a history here, that isn't new and recent. but we are seeing many more pieces of visual evidence. what's going on? is that because everyone has a cellphone. it is hugely important. social media has been very significant coupled with new technology that allow people, almost everyone has a smart phone, every young person does. these phones are tremendous video recording devices. they can be shared very quickly. as i was telling you earlier she in the case of ferguson, it took quite a bit of social media before the media covered it. lets talk about that. social media gets it.
gets that policing of minority communities, is not a big story but a really big story does mainstream media get it? when it comes to television, burning, is going to dominate over the deeper more think piece about bias in policing. i think that when cases become you know, inflamed, minority communities and black communities become outranged at these patterns, then national visual news media kicks in to do the blow by blow violent fire scenes. what you get in many other counter narratives, that you can see collaboration and people
working with each other to try to reself conflict, and be empathetic. police getting along. so there's an obsession we have with the conflict, and a real me to confirm the idea that black people are criminal and do need to be controlled and this is what happens when they're out of control. that bias, for which there's plenty of research, gov version how police treat the same activity. so another girl, who might have been angry or frustrated or upset or whatever, would likely not be treated the way this young woman was treated in texas. can i stop you for a second here. what is this saying here that we consider this officer and he's an attorney, and he talked
about it, and set this up. and roll t. here's what he said, there is an indication based on watching the video, that the white people who were around the officers this guy weren't talked to, and they weren't pushed away. and they weren't put in handcuffs, and the only individuals were doing that to, were african-americans. that confirms what you just said. gentlemen. i mean, this is about what the assumption is about. that's why black people try to go into their own homes are assumed to be criminals. there's a priority set that these adult white people were not instigators and they were acceptable and forward right and honest. now, the age difference does matter. because teens are considered to
be cross -- more involved in some -- more ram bunk husband is than a 55-year-old guy. but, this is not a given. it doesn't apply to black men. so race supersedes age, and all the companies did not respond this way. there's plenty of footage. but, the fact that this cop responded and no cop intervened tells you a lot about what the assumptions are and what is acceptable. let her get up. leave it alone. there's no intervention. i would add, that the guy who is in the middle of this is the corporal, and the group of officers that were around him in the immediate vicinity, he was the supervisor. so there you go. good to see you.
trisha rose. 113 schools are under investigation for sexual assault complaints. that's up from 59 last year. advocates say justice is slow. and the department of education said it needs more funding and president barak obama proposed a 31% increase in his budget. the students, who attended the college have got some good news, more of them could see their debt forgiven. 16,000 current students were eligible for debt relief after it closed in april. and they were a victim of fraud to seek relief. some severe weather is threatening the northeast and now the details. this is the same area of
storms that we had last night. it was a mess across that area. take a look, and up towards northeast. i want to go back to last night. these are the storms that pushed through parts of illinois, indiana and, look at the video we saw wind damage, with winds over 80-miles-per-hour, and thousands of people were without power. we saw tornadoes in indiana and illinois and, we saw major flooding going on. a 15-year old boy was swept away in one of the rivers, and luckily, he was rescued and in good shape. this is what we saw. now, this storm is making its way up here, towards the northeast, from new york down towards virginia, and we are looking at new york, very close and, some very active weather
coming in from the west, and in new jersey, we're talking about tornado watches across the north. morris county, sussex county and, new york, and pennsylvania, and south and, watch this very carefully, because these storms are getting closer. i can see that. all right now, thank you. after 13 years of being locked up, the youngest inmate is looking for another chance, canadian born, was captured in 2002 at the age of 15. after killing an american serviceman, with a grenade in a documentary, he recalled the events, that led to his incarceration. the first of my nightmares is the whole firefighters. the two guys, threw some grenades, and, a couple dloarch inside the house. and something just exploded
beside me. i got tossed, i don't know back, and i got up, and that's when i i ask i lost my left and right eye was damaged and, i started hearing americans and they're screaming and shouting and stuff. and i got scare he. and i was thinking, what should i do? i didn't know what to do. so i thought i'm going to throw this grenade and maybe just scare them away. nobody claims to have seen me throw the grenade and this soldier has testified that i was under there and it couldn't have ben me, and, i hope that my memories were not sure. i've been living in prison for 13 years and i've been carrying myself in a particular way for
that long. it's going to take some. hopefully, not too long, take some time to ease up and. earlier, i spoke with make shell shepherd and, she's the director, and i asked her if he was rad dallized at 15. the way he describes it, he didn't question his father's mission. so after 9/11 he was on the run with his family, and his father led him to libyan fighters to work as a translator and, they all spoke a variety of languages. he didn't question it. he said he was happy not to be hanging out with the women any more. so he went on this mission. it was during that time, about a month after he joined these fighters that he was involved with the firefighters, with the u.s. forces. after his capture he says this,
there's a period where he didn't know what to think and whatever group he was put with, he just adopted their ideology and, over the years he met a lot of positive influences, a lot of canadiens, who came to support him and today as best as you can tell, right after their release, he did not appear radical in any way. and i think we believed him, he said he wanted to move on and have some semblance of a normal life. yeah so, we're about to hear a spot from omar and, this is him talking about how he was treated. is he talking about his treatment at gitmo? they would tie me up to a bed, and you could hear people
screaming all the time. and then, a guy would go for a few days and, you would hear screaming, and he would come back and just destroyed person. so you can only imagine what happened to him. what more did he share with you, about his experience in captivity? so that was his experience before and some of the worst treatment occurred. it's interesting because of all the questions he was very resistent to talk about what. i know some people, who critics of him, and other detainees have said this is his platform to talk about the abuse. he was reluctant to do this interview, and talk about his treatment there. thank you for your time. thank you.
it airs tonight at 10. the anniversary of the israeli attack and survey vorce are calling for a new inquiry 34 sailors were killed back in 1967. and israel said it was a case of mistaken identity. and now, the report. walking through the graveyard, trying to find the skipper, and they he returns to remember the ship mates. killed 34 of hem. a torpedo hit, and, the ship started rolling and said, you'll never get out. and.

the passion to find out what happened, to the us is liberty that remains undiminished. 7 survivors were present. one of them said it's time for both governments to come clean about what happened. apologize, and tell the truth. that was a lie. so it's not an apology. not as far as i'm concerned and the our government is just as bad off. there have been several inquiries, and none have challenged the official account that this was just a tragic mistake. they deserve the truth before they mark another anniversary ♪ ♪ half of the coral reefs have disappeared and thanks to tough laws one country is setting a

pigs. and it's a scene of victory in 1961 but here, too another legacy of cuba's history torey pristine coral reef, around the world, more than 50% have disappeared and, it is different here where the ecosystems have the opportunity to thrive. they have engaged in an enorm massachusetts program of environmental protection. so they're protecting 25% of their waters, in marine protected areas. that compares to maybe 9% in the united states, and only 2% world-wide. the lack of chemical fertilizers, has meant there's little toxic run off. it's almost like doing it back to time, to see what they used
to look like. and that really gives me hope for the future. further out to the sea so the abundance of marine life. i see this as a great opportunity, at a very open for tune moment to help cuba, leap-frog overall those mistakes the rest of us have made. here's another pristine system clean and totally unpolluted. it's the wetlands, most extensive areas t remain. there are laggains, and swamp and shallow waters. it's huge. it's huge and here we are just watching a small area. you go there and, the same environment. very shallow waters, and it means, that we see plenty of things and this is a very
protected area. the beauty of cuba is staggering, it is a huge source of potential revenue. the trick will be tapping its wealth without destroying its integrity. the bay of pigs cuba. from underwater to above the earth, in nasa got one step closer to mars after testing its flying saucer was car rig 120,000 feet in the air by a giant balloon, a booster rocket flew the rocket, and the spacecraft air bag inflated, and hit a bump when the paracute failed to open and, some day it could help get heavy pay looks to mars. thanks for joining us.
