>> announcer: this is "new day," with chris cuomo, kate boldaun and michaela pereira. good morning, welcome to new day, it's friday, october 10th, 6:00 in the east, alisyn camerota by my side, we have breaking news. the nobel peace prize goes to children's rights crusaders, one of them the youngest winner ever, a young woman with an amazing story, pakistani teen and education advocate, malala youss youssef. the secretive nobel committee saying the decision was more difficult this year than usual it received a record 278 nominations for the big prize, let's talk about it with senior international correspondent, nic robertson, with the latest from london and we're joined on the phone by chief international
correspondent christiane amanpour who has spent a lot of time with malala. people were expecting her to win last year. this year, is it a surprise? >> i think it was a surprise, perhaps the biggest surprise this year, the bookmakers had been favoring her. the pope had been the favorite. a lot of people will be gratified to see she has this. it will be inspirational for young girls in particular. the world over to see that she has been recognized at this level. but also, the nobel committee deciding to link her award with that of this indian child's right activist as well, he, a hindu, she a muslim from pakistan. a message to india and pakistan, you have your differences, your different identities, but you have a common goal, a common challenge, the world does as well, to educate children. he, by his own words, has freed about 80,000 children from
servitude created programs like rug mark. to show that rugs made in india have not been made by children working in servitude. in terrible conditions. but for malala youssef. she's been such a champion. >> cristiane, can you hear us? >> of course i can. >> what a great message for malala to have won. tell us your outs thoughts. >> it's a massive message. let's consider where we are in the world today. she's a young muslim girl, shot by a muslim extremist, the taliban, at a time now when we are watching isis, butcher girls and women for doing precisely what malala tried to do several years ago. so in many, many ways, it resonates incredibly.
not just because of the link between her co-share as well, india and pakistan, that's the peace part of the nobel peace prize. but in terms of being an activist, at such a young age for girls and women's rights, across the board. as well as most importantly, education. i sat down and interviewed her last year in new york, when her book came out in fact. and she was somebody who demonstrated an intellectual rigor, a poise and a gentle girlish humor all at the same time. able to sit and be interviewed in a public arena, with a live audience, and was very, very funny, poignant, moving, but determined. she said even though they shot me, they cannot kill my spirit. >> that's beautiful. >> cristiane, in some ways, overcoming the bullet wound was the least of her challenges. tell us what you learned about malala in terms of what she's breaking through and what she's overcoming by age, by geography,
by culture? >> it took amazing efforts by british surgeons here in birmingham to save her life, she very nearly died. once she got over that and back on her feet and had her voice again, she continued to broadcast this voice for peace and for girls rights and she kept saying, even at a young age. before she was shot, she kept saying it is my right to be educated. it is my right to go to the market. it is my right to be a normal human being and i will continue to fight for that. i think the sad and challenging thing is that she is still in england. she's still here because obviously she's getting educated and her treatment is being followed. but she is not welcome, really, in large parts of pakistan. and that's a big, big shame. you know, it really points out the incredible challenges of
trying to get girls and women their basic rights. and frankly children all over. if you look at u.n. statistics about the number of people who are still out of school and still illiterate, the vast majority obviously are children and it is terribly, terribly difficult for their rights to be managed and to be approved. and she still fighting that fight. >> this is a time when there just isn't peace in the world, in fact we're seeing conflict only getting worse and spreading. particularly from isis. in syria and iraq and there are, have been no clear big leaders. in bringing together peace-makers and leading anyone out of the conflict at the moment. the conflict seems to be getting
worse, more intractable and escalating. i think this is in part what the nobel peace committee mean. they didn't have names presented to them that had that obvious peace link. i think again, by linking pakistan and india, these are two nuclear-powered nations that in the past half-century have fought three wars and caused considerable consternation around the world as they've done that, about what the next step in the wars might be. this is a very powerful message that you have a common thread across your border. the education of girlgs, the education of children, helping the next generation to become participants in the economy, in the politics of your countries. it is a global message, but it's also a message here for peace on that continent. at an important time when we're not seeing it in other places around the world. >> nic and cristiane, so well said. great to talk to you this morning. both such beacons, both of the
winners, of inspiration in this time as nic just pointed out. >> this kid is only 17, she's overcome so much. for her to have this strong a voice where she comes from and the cultural restrictions -- amazing. and nic's point, you could think splitting the award is a way of hedging your bets. heres, there's a larger message, india and pakistan, so much conflict. a young person and a person who has been doing it his entire life, showing they're joined in the same struggle for peace. >> bringing them together is powerful. >> and the biggest message, that it was hard to find a lead anywhere the peace movement right now, given the state of affairs. it will be interesting to see who wins it, if anybody, next year. other breaking news overnight. keep your eyes on st. louis, there was a tense standoff after a black teen was shot and killed by an off-duty cop. the most heated protests we've seen since the shooting of black teen michael brown in nearby ferguson. angry words, vandalism, confrontations with police, leading to two arrests, the circumstances surrounding the shootings are different.
but the anger, very much the same. sarah sidener has the latest for us. >> overnight, shaw boulevard turned chaotic. police using pepper spray on the crowd of protesters of the tense standoff quickly escalates. >> the large knife came flying out of the crowd. >> police say they were asking the crowd of protesters to disburse around midnight when this knife here on the ground was hurled towards the officers, hitting one of them in the shoulder. >> it shows the emotions and how quickly the situation can turn. >> protesters smashing the windows of a police car. >> someone throwing a brick at this police suv. >> i understand the emotions, but there's some things you can't tolerate and that's one of them. >> what started out as a peaceful vigil early thursday evening later reignited anger. over the killing of black teenager vonderek myers, shot by an off-duty st. louis police
officer working a security job. police say myers was no stranger to them. pictured here for a gun conviction back in june. and autopsy revealed the 18-year-old was shot seven or eight times. the fatal wound a gunshot to his right cheek. >> the call for justice reminiscent of the outrage over unarmed teenager, michael brown's shooting only two months ago. allegedly with his hands up, brown was shot six times by a white police officer. only 12 miles away in ferguson, missouri. a grand jury is currently hearing the case and will decide if charges will be brought against officer darren wilson. but this most recent shooting may be different. police say myers fired a 9-millimeter pistol three times at the officer, the officer firing a total of 17 times. the weapon recovered at the scene. myers' family members insist, though, that the teenager was unarmed. and holding a sandwich at the time. >> we have a right to have a
life just like anyone else. >> and some people are building their own narrative. expressing distrust of the st. louis police department. >> it's a clear case of this young man being gunned down by insensitive white officer who was off duty. he chased him off a corner. >> protesters pushing the limit with police and burning the american flag. in this divided community, racial tensions and nerves on edge again. >> thanks so much to sarah for that. breaking news -- just coming in, north and south korea reportedly exchanging artillery fire as questions swirl around the whereabouts of kim jong-un. now overnight, the 31-year-old north korean leader was a no-show, failing to appear at a palace ceremony honoring his late father and grandfather. according to north korea's news agency flowers were presented in kim's absence. so let's bring in paula hancock, live from seoul.
what do we know, paula? >> we have just confirmed that the exchange of fire did take place, we know that this friday afternoon, local time. there were a number of anti-north korea propaganda balloons sent from south korea by activists over to north korea. now we understand from the defense ministry here, that north korea fired at those balloons, a little while later. we understand that they actually found some of those north korean shells inside south korean territory. which is when the south koreans announced they were about to fire. they warned the north koreans and fired 40 rounds of machine gun fire. we understand from the defense ministry, there's no casualties in south korea. we don't know the situation in north korea. it's unlikely we will hear that. but this is obviously the latest in a number of tensions that we have been seeing recently. the two sides exchanging fire. earlier this week we saw the two sides, the patrol boats from both sides exchanging fire in the maritime border just off the
west coast of korea. and it comes at a time as well that we had a high-level delegation coming to seoul from north korea wanting to talk peace and the leader is nowhere to be seen. alisyn? >> let's talk about that, the leader, nowhere to be seen. when is the last time that we saw him? and do we think that kim jong-un's sister is in charge of the country? >> well more than five weeks ago. ? the longest that we haven't seen the north korean leader. he is not camera-shy, he is quite often in the public eye and clearly seems to enjoy it he's always been talked about by state-run media. so very unusual he hasn't been seen. we knew that he had a limp, we saw it on television. we heard from state-run media, he had been suffering discomfort. an unprecedented admission there was something wrong. i have been asking many experts here in south korea, whether or not his sister may be in control there. they say it's unlikely.
they say it's north korea, so it's not impossible. but they say it's unlikely. if in fact he was his second in control, the vice marshal would be in control. but at this point, they simply don't know. alisyn? >> paula hancocks, thank you so much for all the information. over to michaela for more news. all right, good morning, everybody, 13 minutes past the hour. here's a look at your headlines, turkey's foreign minister insisting he's against isis and its actions in kobani. but refusing to send in troops to help save the city. this as the militant group gains control of a third of the city. turkey is asking for a buffer zone along its frontier with syria. critics predict it will become a place where moderate rebels will train to fight president bashar al assad's government. a tip from a viewer to cnn's show, "the hunt" may have helped crack a nearly 40-year-old cold
case. this tip led the fbi to exhume the body of a john doe who was killed in a car accident. burihood in alabama in 1981. now authorities believe that is the body of william bradford bishop jr., a 10 most wanted fugitive. missing since the 1970s, profiled on "the hunt" in july. he was accused of killing his wife, mother and three sons back in 1976. with a little luck that helped the indianapolis colts hold off the houston texans. 33-28 in thursday night's football. andrew luck threw a pair of touchdown passes, giving the colts a 24-0 first-half lead. the colts barely held on. two houston fumbles in the closing minutes to escape with their fourth straight win. speaking of football, did you hear this, reports say pop star katy perry will be the super bowl xlix halftime performer.
this is a bit of a surprise, considering that perry made some comments at a recent interview that she wasn't quote the kind of girl who would pay to play the super bowl. as the nfl reportedly was asking artists to do. i'm betting there was a $100 million reasons as 100 million viewers to do it. the 2017 super bowl will be in glendale, arizona. start planning your recipes now. get out the caso recipe. >> is it the right -- demographic? >> super bowl is so much bigger than sport. >> i'm talking about her. >> you know? >> who doesn't like her these days. >> she has the catchiest songs. >> bubble-gummy fun. >> may hbe she didn't pay, but r record company. >> you all tune in for katy perry? crickets, crickets. >> he was tapping his foot.
>> but doesn't want to violate man law. >> doing the little shimmy shake. >> do you think katy perry is a good choice, are you going to tune in for halftime? who would you like to see? go to facebook.com/newday and tell us who you want to hear. > >> people singing. ♪ roar he says it was a joke, but no one on the plane was laughing when a passenger said, i have ebola and you're all screwed. suddenly the cabin fills with guys in hazmat suits, more on the alert and new screenings. and startling new details about the man being held in the disappearance of hannah graham. police are piecing together a possible link that jesse matthew may have to another student's disappearance and murder. is there proof?
this was all just a dumb joke? >> somebody's idea of a prank. >> steps are being take ton try to calm people's fears and also steps to try to contain the threat. >> there's a situation. >> there was the announcement of a flight attendant just before health officials in full hazmat suits boarded u.s. airways flight in the dominican republic. a passenger posted this video and local reports say the man said, i have ebola, you're all screwed. >> please get out of the way. let them do their job. >> the flight from philadelphia was checked and cleared, but kept passengers stuck on the plane for two hours, it's unclear what happened to the man who made the claim. this incident, only the begin of a new front in the fight to stop the spread of ebola. passengers leaving the hot zone will be checked for symptoms,
answering questions and having their temperatures taken when they arrive stateside at five major u.s. airports. new york city's jfk international, newark, washington, d.c. dulles, atlanta and chicago o'hare. >> we expect to see some patients with fever and that will cause some obvious and understandable concern. at the airports. >> more than 50 million passengers traveled through jfk last year. but the new procedures will impact just a tiny fraction. exams will be done if special areas designated by customs and border protection. an onside cdc health officer will step in to evaluate any potential ebola case. passengers leaving sierra leone, liberia and guinea are already screened before boarding planes out of those countries. >> of course i'm concerned, i don't think there's anybody in the country who is not concerned about the situation with ebola. we're not ready at the airports
yet. but we will be. >> jfk will be the first airport to roll out the new screening process, that starts tomorrow. the other four airports should follow at some point next week. and they're also some similar plans to implement these types of screenings in london and canada. and we won't be surprised if we see other countries taking similar steps to do this. >> too bad there's no screening for dumb jokes beforehand. alexandra, thanks so much for the update. and probably no real punishment for it, either, alisyn. big question marks raised in the news around these issues. let's bring in dr. kent shepkowitz, chief at memorial sloan koettering cancer center and juliette kayyem, former assistant secretary at the department of homeland security. i don't think you can make a case against this guy that sticks. but how high is this on the list of stupid things to do, what this guy did on the airplane?
>> i have two sons, ages 10 and seven and i think they know better. this is, and actually, chris, he will probably be prosecuted for some disruption of airline travel. false alarms. and but he's part of a bigger story. which is going on right now, which is probably the biggest threat to the u.s. public health system. and public safety system. isn't ebola right now, it's the worried well. it's the pranksters, it's the hoaxes, it's all of this other activity that is generated by you know, one or two or three cases in the united states. and so that is why we have to be pretty firm against all of that background noise. because eventually you know, our public health system might begin to have to deal with future cases. which are going to come to the united states. we just have to be ready for it. >> so if the message is -- check yourself. see this for what it is, not the worst of what it could be. then doctor, let me come to you, what do you think about the head of the cdc?
who says, the last thing we saw like this, was aids. this could be the next aids says dr. friedan. is that not, is that not alarmist? >> that's very alarming. i don't know that it's alarmist of him. he's a very thoughtful, cautious guy. it alarmed me when he said that. i will say that i think he's referring to the indifference by countries like the u.s. in terms of helping africa with their outbreak. i think that the world stood still for way too long when hiv was happening. i think he's echoing a concern that he's worried that the world is standing still and not doing enough right now. >> that's a helpful metaphor for the american audience to hear? >> certainly woke everybody up. i think it's the right thing to, do i think we're focusing too much on one case in dallas and not on the global epidemic we're having. >> let me get the take from both of you on the new screening procedures to be put in place. there are a lot of questions
about them. it's interesting that you think it could be the next aid, head of the cdc. but you don't think you should restrict travel to the place where the ebola is going on. do you think the screening procedures are window dressing? or do you think they're going to be effective. do you think there are going to be more false positives than anything else, juliette? >> i think it will be a combination of all of them. the fight against ebola is only going to be successful when we kill it off. and doing so is going to take a sort of chisel approach to who has it, who's been exposed to it. the airline screening rules are sort of more like a hammer. they may catch people. i'm not that optimistic about it. but there is something. and we shouldn't deny it, to having the u.s. government take seriously this threat to try to calm what's a growing public panic. and you know, as viewers are watching, there are things that you can do. for example, get your flu shot. because if you get a fever in
the next six to eight weeks, you may be worried. there are other things that we can do to just calm the temperature. but there's going to be false positives. all around and it's going to stress the system. >> what do you think, doc, screenings a good idea? >> i think it's a complete waste of energy and resource. i think it is effective in making, creating political cover. but i don't think it's going to be effective at all. it's going to make a bigger mess than we already have and give a false assurance, there will be nothing good to come from this. i'm very surprised. we tried this in sars, there's a very well-articulated medical literature on this, it didn't work then. and sars was a much more contagious disease. if i had sars, you could catch it. >> it was airborne? >> yeah. whereas if i had ebola, you would not catch it so i think there was a plausible rationale to do it with sars and it did not work. we have evidence to that effect. >> thank you very much for being with us. one of the unknowns still is did
we learn from happened in dallas, the hospital there is pushing back. we'll have to see what the next case, whether or not the hospital is ready, but that falls into the unknowns. thanks to both of you again. another story we want to tell but this morning. we have new details surfacing about the man held in the disappearance of hannah graham. there is a new link between the man you're looking at, jesse matthew, and another student's disappearance and murder. this, as clashes break out in st. louis over a police-involved shooting. while nearby ferguson plan as weekend of protests because of the michael brown shooting. and the lack of any resolve there yet. we're going 0 bring in legal analysts and weigh in on the reaction to these shootings, tuck about how they're the same and how they're very different. [ narrator ] mama sherman and the legion of super fans.
and it's automatic. we save time and money. time? money? time and money. awesome. awesome! awesome! awesome! awesome! (all) awesome! i love logistics. the markets are hoping for a rebound after the biggest dow plunge of the year. chief business correspondent christine romans is in our money center. next to me. with that. christine, what is going on in the markets? >> it's rare to see a move like that. 300-point move, 2% and the wild swings just keep coming, the dow 335 points lower.
the worst drop in a year. futures down across the board so watch this space. what's going on? a few reasons, october has been volatile. the dow has moved more than 200 points five days this month. investors are worried about sluggish growth abroad, especially germany and china. and in october the fed will stop the stimulus. and look at the chart, this is critical, the market has not had a 10% drop, a true correction since 2011. see? and every time it's pulled back, it races higher again. people feel like if it falls a little bit. i want to keep getting in. there hasn't been a real correction since 2011. all of these things together why people are selling stocks, so we're overdue for a correction. >> we're way overdue for a correction. most people are saying to me, what am i supposed to be doing right now? should i be selling stocks right now? we talked about rebalancing. you should know what percentage of your portfolio should be stocks, bonds, cash, other
things. and if it's 70%, as the market has been going up, you've been selling stocks along the way to stay at 70%, just figure out what is your -- asset allocation supposed to be? how much stocks do you want to have in your portfolio and make sure you're selling along the way or buying along the way to get there. the closer you are to retirement. if you've got almost all of your portfolio in stocks and your ten years or less away from retirement. you have to be very careful. there's too much in the stock market. >> especially with the disadvantage between regular people and traders. >> you're right. >> great advice. a lot of news this morning, michaela, please tell us. >> it would be my pleasure. happy friday, we're learning new details about the two officers accused of using excessive force in a traffic stop that went badly. traffic officers patrick bacari and charles turner have been
named in previous lawsuits involving the use of excessive force. both officers denied the allegations in each case. suspended minnesota vikings running back adrian peterson face as possible rearrest. he admitted to court officials he smoked marijuana and was likely to fail a drug test. peterson made the admission wednesday during his initial court appearance on a child abuse charge. prosecutors have asked the judge to revoke his $15,000 bail and asked he be rearrested. actress and comedian jan hooks has died, best known for her five years on "saturday night live," from 1986 to-'91. more recently appeared on "30 rock." reportedly she had been battling a serious illness. jan hooks was 57 years old. i predict this is going to cause some kerfuffle here on the set, microsoft's ceo has a whole lot of explaining to do, after
advising female workers not to ask for a raise, but to instead put faith in karma. i had to let that sink in for a second. he was speaking at a conference in phoenix for women in computing. he told women in the audience they should trust the system. when it comes to compensation. christine romans head is burning right now. that triggered a social media krout cry. later he admitted in a tweet that those comments were inarticulate and he called on the tech industry to close the gender pay gap. >> karma has done well so far. just trusting have gotten women 77 cents on the dollar. people say it's out of character. that he sees people very equally. that he is -- >> was he being sarcastic? >> no. >> he says he was being inarticulate. and a lot of -- >> what could he have meant? >> he could have meant around
him, the system works, because people are paid for performance. but it's not like that for everyone. >> people around him say yes, he is a very important person in a very big role and karma does not work outside in most industries. >> it's the opposite of leaning in, it's lying down. which is what he's recommending. the opposite. >> if i could quote you on that? >> sheryl sandberg, you heard it here first, great to see you. anger is still running rampant in st. louis after a police officer kill as teenager. demonstrators inflamed falling the release of the 18-year-old's autopsy. we will discuss the shocking report. plus, a possible big break in the search for uva student hannah graham, how a cab and who was driving it may hold some answers. we have it ahead.
in a race, it's about getting to the finish line. in life, it's how you get there that matters most. like when i found out i had a blood clot in my leg. my doctor said that it could travel to my lungs and become an even bigger problem. so he talked to me about xarelto®. >>xarelto® is the first oral prescription blood thinner proven to treat and help prevent dvt and pe that doesn't require regular blood monitoring or changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling.
if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today. are like a passionate dance.ion it's color. it's a way of life. a harmony that brings people together. the more we give in to the magic of this place, the more we'd like to stay.
myers was hit quote seven or eight times by the off-duty police officer. the fatal wound was to his head. let's bring in paul callan, the cnn legal analyst and mo ivory, attorney and radio host. the police officer says the teenager shot at him first, police say there was a 9-millimeter pistol found at the scene. the protesters do not believe police. how are we supposed to resolve this? >> the very problem we have at hand is one of those of those incidents where there is no video. we go to two stories. of course, who is going to believe the police and especially in this area in st. louis? so close to ferguson, so close to what happened to michael brown. it is going to be a tale of two stories. and it's going to, the physical evidence, the forensics are going to have to tell the story in the event you don't have video. but this is the problem with the distrust of police, and why so many people will immediately say, well he was unarmed.
why was this off-duty officer going towards these young men in the first place? was it racial profiling? so here again, you have the distrust of the police, coming into play as to whether the facts are or are not what people are saying. >> let me give people a little bit more information. it comes from a news report on cnn.com, it says that the officer, off-duty, saw three black males run away as he approached. he gave chase. because one of then was holding up his pants in a way that made the officer believe the teen may be carrying a gun. the officer and one of the three tussled. the teenager ran off. then turned around and fired at least three shots at the officer. this story sounds -- sketchy. why would an off-duty police officer who was not supposed to be patrolling the streets, he was acting as a security guard, i believe, approach three teenagers on a corner? >> well, he, and frankly we're not going to know all the facts, you know as mo said. i think the biggest problem here
is that the police in st. louis, there's such distrust in the community that you know, they used to get the benefit of the doubt when they said somebody was shooting at me and i shot back. but now the police are so distrusted by the community, that you know, we have massive demonstrations every time there's a use of force. i don't know how this is going to play out. but i will tell you one of the reports is that the officer was in full uniform even though he was working as a private security guard. police officers are police officers 24 hours a day. if they witness suspicious behavior or criminal behavior, they can pursue. but a young man trying to pull his pants up or even, by the way, the courts have said that young men running, that is not probable cause to pursue or arrest. so from what i'm hearing on those facts, i don't know that he had a right to pursue in the first place, but on the other hand if somebody shot at him he has the right to return fire and if he hits seven times, that will still be a legal use of force. but we have to see how the evidence sorts this out.
>> mo, the protesters say this is michael brown all over again. but if the teenager had a gun and shot at the officer, it's completely different. >> absolutely. i mean i don't think anybody, black, white, green, no matter what is going on right now, would say that a police officer doesn't have the right to protect themselves and to use deadly force. but here we go again with 17 shots. it has to ring in anybody's mind, that seems excessive. or why so many shots? you even have conflicting stories, even from the -- >> was it 17? 17 shots? >> 17 shots were fired. but he was hit seven times. >> somebody is running away. obviously it can be hard, stressful situation. even for a police officer to hit the -- >> to hit the target. >> i'm saying when you compound it with what is already going on, a federal judge just ruled that the protesters in ferguson's rights were violated, the special prosecutor is
playiplay ing footsie with darren wilson. >> it's unfair, mo, to say that the federal prosecutor is playing footsie with darren wilson, the police officer in the michael brown case. i mean i don't -- you know i don't know that that's a fair characterization. >> well there's definitely there's definitely question as to what is going on with that grand jury. because they are being investigated right now. there has been no arrests. >> you're talking about the leaks from the grand jury? >> yes. >> okay, i see. i got to agree with you 100%, there's a total lack of confidence in the law enforcement in the st. louis area. it's not just st. louis, i think in black communities across america, there's skepticism about the police. but we serve justice in america one case at a time. and we have to look at the individual facts of individual cases to see if the use of force was justified. i think it's premature to be jumping to a conclusion in this case until we hear the facts. >> the public doesn't respect and trust, the police, that is a

this morning we're learning new details about the man being held in the disappearance of hannah graham. investigators in virginia say jesse matthew was working as a cab driver the night virginia tech student morgan harrington vanished five years ago. he was questioned by police in 2009 following hers disappearance. we've learned that the cab that matthew drove that night has been seized by authorities as part of their investigation. erin mcpike is latest in charlottesville, virginia with the latest. >> good morning. well when hannah graham first went missing, the police chief here said it was a legitimate question to raise. whether these two cases were linked. but he didn't want to jump to
conclusions. but now the connections are impossible to ignore. jesse matthew has been in police custody for two weeks. the last person known to have seen hannah graham the night she disappeared four weeks ago. police have linked him to another missing girl, virginia tech student morgan harrington, who vanished in october 2009. now police have found a second possible link connecting matthew to harrington's death. a source with knowledge of the investigation says police have seized a taxi cab owned by matthew. law enforcement sources say they have already linked matthew to harrington's disappearance with dna evidence. but no charges have been filed. last month, harrington's parents told cnn's anderson cooper they just want to prevent another tragedy. >> we're not joyful. there's no celebration here. we're kind of stunned. but we also are, are you know, devastated that it has come through hannah graham being missing. >> in 2005, matthew got a
business license to drive a cab in the city of charlottesville. state and federal investigators believe matthew was driving a cab for a now-defunct company called access the night morgan went missing. fellow drivers remember matthew. >> our understanding again is that he was driving a cab the night that morgan harrington was abducted. >> her body was found months late anywhere 2010. 10 miles from where she was last seen, getting into a taxi. 2010 was also the last year matthew renewed his license to drive a cab in the city of charlottesville. investigators say they interviewed several cab drivers at the time. >> they asked, with dark-colored cars, cabs around. i went down a list of them and asked them. i seen him again. i said well what cab company was it? and he told me. and when he told me, i'm like oh, okay, great. it wasn't us. >> matthew's attorney is not commenting on the case. and matthew's co-workers told
cbs 6 news in charlottesville when they would compare him to the man in the sketch linked to harrington's death, matthew would become visibly upset and disappear for hours. alisyn? >> erin mcpike, thank you for the update. let's bring in mel robbins, cnn commentator and legal analyst. i'm going to play the other side in this, mel, because i know you know the case very well. of course you get upset when people say you look like the guy suspected in a crime and disappear for hours. that's an embarrassing situation. what is the proof? there's curious things here, we keep hearing they're strengthening links. what do you think they actually have on this guy? >> i think they have either dna evidence that links harrington to him. or they have some sort of forensic evidence that they found at his house, chris. >> but no charges? >> but no charges yet. you're absolutely right. this is, they're at the stage where they've got all of these little bread crumbs and they're trying to amass enough so that
they can actually make charges stick in this. what you don't want to have happen is you don't want to overreach. you don't want to overcharge. because the families are so devastated. and you also have all of these possible links, we're not only talking about the morgan harrington case. we have cases dating back to october of 2002. that's 12 years before hannah graham went missing. and as of this morning. looking at multiple news sources, chris, there are up to 15 cases of missing women that the police department are now publicly saying that they're looking into. and interestingly enough, there was that report about an assault at christopher news university in 2003. will there was another woman or excuse me, sophia riviera that went missing that evening in christopher news. so they don't, the problem here is, without bodies you don't have any evidence that you can physically connect him to. i am sure what the police are doing, is they are scouring his apartment. they are scouring his car for
any kind of dna evidence that will link him to these women. and the way you get the dna evidence from them is you go to their houses and their toothbrushes and their parents. that only establishes that they were connected. without the bodies, it's going to be very hard to link him to any other cases. we do have a body in this case. they're going to have to have something more than dna evidence. the thing that i find curious, how is it that just a week ago or just a couple of days ago they found a cab? from five years ago, on a farm? >> they have obviously have dna linking him to some of these cases. but there are all of these open and unfinished and cold cases of these women that have gone missing and is very concerning. everybody wants justice for those families. everybody wants to find out what happened to them. is there a concern that they'll
pile those all on him? >> of course, absolutely. you start to create this map where it looks like a clustering effect. every single one of these missing cases has happened in the fall. it's almost every single year. one after the other. in july, august, september, october. some on the same days. >> you get on the trail and maybe you stop looking anywhere else, because you think you have your guy. that's what you have to balance. >> forensic evidence and forensic link is a pretty good indication thaw might have your guy. >> absolutely. for example, the problem for propers is let's just say for argument's sake. hypothetically he's involved in some of these and let's just say that he was a sicko that kept t-shirts or whatever. even if he has those, that's not necessarily enough to convict him of the murder or the abduction of these gals. >> you have a t-shirt of somebody, doesn't that mean you had access to their body? >> it doesn't mean that you weren't just the last person that was with them and they left in the morning.
like you can't -- >> that's why the body is so important. >> the body is so important. >> very often they won't even call something a murder. >> this cab could be important there were lots of these unsolved cases that happened in 2009. there are three that i know of that the police have talked about. that were 2009 in this area. and you know. >> they want to know how long the cab has been in the field, also. >> it's very strange angle on that story. >> mel, thanks, great to see you. >> we are following a lot of news this morning. starting with breaking news. it's of the very good variety. >> this is cnn breaking news. good morning, welcome to "new day," i'm alisyn camerota alongside chris cuomo. we begin with the breaking news that chris was talking about. we've just learned that the nobel peace prize is shared by two impressive people who both have fought hard for children's rights. >> one is a very familiar face -- malala yousafzai.
she has battled tirelessly for girl's right to education in pakistan. and also, kailash satyarthi, at the head of a global movement to end child slavery since the '80s. christiane amanpour has the latest, you helped introduce the world to malala. >> you know, she is a remarkable work woman. we've had her on the air several times, including a lengthy interview last year in which she was really so poised and so articulate. and when i asked her about the threats that she's been under, and the life-threatening attempts to just stop what she was doing, this is what she said to me on stage in new york. >> they can kill me, they can only kill malala. but it does not mean that they can kill my cause as well. my cause of education, my cause of peace and my cause of human rights. my cause of equality.
will still be surviving. they cannot kill my cause. >> so it's that kind of determination and poise that obviously got her to this nobel peace prize. and it's a long and big, big message, obviously to the world. as we sit here right now, what do we see? we see isis, islamic extremists who are slaughtering, butchering, beheading, not just our fellow journalists, about also girls and women, just for trying to have the kind of rights that malala has been standing up for and risked her life for. on the other hand, kailas shmpb satyarthi has spent a lifetime trying to get children out of child labor. 140 million children in india alone in child labor and about half of those, in servitude and slavery. >> it's allison here, and as
we've been talking, there's something poignant and powerful about the nobel committee awarding it to india and pakistan and their sort of beacons there. >> i think you're absolutely right. they were apparently a record number of entries and nominations, according to the statistics, some 278 this year. and they were very careful and quite clever about who they've chosen. they've stood up for children, both in education and slave labor. the peace part of the prize is really india and pakistan, two countries which are very antagonistic. neighbors, nuclear-powered, fought three wars, people are always worried about what the next war might bring if the two prime ministers can't work their problems out politically. so i think that is very important. and also, on a religious side as well. you have the muslim, malala and the hindu, kailash, and i think it's very important, these messages. the big test of course. is whether malala can have an
impact in her own country where very sadly, she has not been able to return after being treated here. she's still here in england. there's some backlash against what she stands for there. a huge amount of education to be done, just to accept her campaign for education. >> on the one hand, it's wonderful to recognize the work of a gentleman like that and on the other hand, not only is malala young, very young when this happened, but to overcome the injury, and then the culture, and all the restrictions on her and to have the voice, how unique an individual does it make her? >> i think really unique. because even though kailas kailash satyarthi is much older and has devoted his life to the labor of children's rights. she also has devoted her life to
that. she was very, very young when she started to speak out in pakistan. in a wonderful part of pakistan, which was overrun by the taliban and has had terrible impact because of that there have been millions of refugees who poured out of that. millions of young girls, women and boys and men who have been oppressed and assaulted by the taliban. yet she kept speaking up at a very young age. he had at least the support of the parents her father, the male of the family supported her. she kept talking and just one day two years ago, she was on a bus coming home from school sitting with her girlfriends, her classmates on the bus. and somebody, a taliban, stopped the bus, asked specifically which one is malala. and her book was entitled "i am malala." and so for that, she was shot and it was life-threatening and they airlifted her here to england to a very highly specialized, the queen elizabeth
who hospital in birmingham and they saved her life and it might have deterred a lesser spirit. but it has not deterred her and it's really remarkable. >> christiane, thank you so much for all of that background, she is a true inspiration. malala is a transcendent figure for her time. she is so far beyond her years. >> and mr. satyarthi makes the point that people literally dedicate their lives to causes for peace. in a country that needs it. 140 million children in child labor. other news to tell you about, breaking overnight, a deadly clash between protesters and police in st. louis. the the anger is fuelled by the deadly shooting of a black teenager by an off-duty white police officer not far from where the body of michael brown was found. it comes as police practices come under scrutiny since the brown shooting in august. cnn's sarah sidener is live in
ferguson for us this morning. what is the scene in the town since this has happened? >> it's quiet. it's been raining and it is very early in the morning here. and so things are quiet now. but overnight there was quite a bit of unrest in st. louis, which is about 10 to 20 12 miles from here. police here are saying two people are arrested. one officer was injured when someone threw a knife and hit an office anywhere the shoulder. that officer okay. dealing with small injuries there. we can also tell you this, it was sparked by another shooting involving a black teenager who is 18 years old. the same age as michael brown. two months ago. vonderek myers was killed by an off-duty police officer, who was wearing his police uniform. there are a lot of questions. protesters saying he was unarmed. the person where he visited the last few minutes of his life. the store owner said he didn't
see a gun on him. but police disputing that. saying that vonderek myers did shoot at a police officer. the police officer was off-duty, but he was again wearing his uniform. that officer saying he saw myers and two other gentlemen running and that's what made the officer turn around and pursue him. there are questions tonight, from the protesters and family as to why exactly he was chasing vonderek myers and his friends in the first place. this all converged to make a very dangerous scene there on shaw boulevard in st. louis. again two people arrested, one officer hurt. >> sarah sidener, thank you for the update from ferguson. let's go to chris. >> the facts are so important in a situation like this. if you see it one way, you feel one way about this. let's dig deeper with the general counsel for the st. louis police officers association. let's go through what we know
and then we will discuss how an officer supposed to react under the circumstances, once we understand them. is it true that this police officer was off-duty. >> yes, that's not an usual thing for us to have in this situation. he's been hired by a neighborhood association to provide extra police patrolling. >> he was in his normal police uniform? >> that's correct. and that's what we call approved secondary. so what he was doing that night would have been approved by the department. >> what is your understanding of what happened when he approached the young men. >> he was in an awful provided by a security company. a private company that would have contracted with the neighborhood. as i understand it, what he was doing was patrolling the streets, when he encountered them having passed by them. saw them walking down the street. went down the street a distance,
did a u-turn, came back the other way. and as he did that they started to run. he got out of his car and provided foot pursuit to the three running. the young man, vondurt meijers who was running. >> why do you think he decided to give chase. kids run from the cops all the time. as the law states, it's not probable cause of a crime by itself. do you know why he decided to do that? >> you have reasonable grounds to stop or pursue at that point and investigate it further. he got out because he perceived that there was something that was amiss. and let's, let's pay attention to what we think we want police officers to do. we want them to use their instincts, we want them -- there was a veteran officer, six years on the force. four years in the marine corps, he sees something that sparked his interest. and he's reacting to it. that's what he's paid to do. he gets out. he chases, what happens? >> as he gets out and chases, my understanding was, he runs he's at the intersection of clem and shaw, the young man runs up a
hill and again you sort of have to see this. but the house that he runs towards is in an elevated position. and my guess is that he was running towards a gangway that existed between the buildings so that he could get away. as he got to the top of the hill, he fell. he turned, and apparently at that point produced a weapon. and started firing at the officer. >> the family says he had a sandwich in his hand and it was mistaken for a gun. do you give any credence to that? >> no, none whatsoever. let's look at the physical evidence that we know was there. when the police got there, they get there right away. the first thing you do is secure the scene. you make sure that everything gets up so you can protect the area where this happened. they put up tape, they did all sorts of things make sure that that happened. they recovered a pistol from the young man. that was jammed. so that he had fired the pistol. they knew it, there was a bullet that jammed in the pistol. so it couldn't fire any more. there were shell casings around the body. there were bullets recovered from the ground by the police officer. what they didn't recover was a sandwich so there's nothing that
indicates that he was eating a sandwich. you know again i don't know where that came from. but people construct things and that's the problem we have here. >> were either of the other two kids detained? >> no. and my understanding was, again, as i've spoken to them, i've not spoken to them, as i've gotten information from the police officers, i haven't heard anything that suggests they're offering any different details than what i'm describing to you. >> the chief involved in this situation, is the same chief, i understand, who was involved when the officers shot and killed the man who was believed to be mentally disturbed, who had the knife. who kept coming at them outside the store. he was very open with the public. they gave the public all the information they had, it helped. shouldn't they be doing the same thing now, bringing out all the details, so people aren't guessing at what happened? >> yes. in st. louis, there's a big distinction between st. louis and ferguson. not just in terms of distance, that's 10-12 miles apart. we're a separate county unto our
sefls, the police chief you're talking about, chief doddson has always had a policy of transparency. we began about six months ago a new officer-involved shooting policy that was implemented right at the time the michael brown shooting occurred. the entire basis for that rule is transparency. that's what he's doing now. that's what he did with the shooting that you've described before. what we call the north point shooting. >> different this time? last time he was quicker about giving the information that the crowd was interested in. this time, hopefully it comes out, especially with the 17 shots. not especially all of this information is relevant. but the 17 shots help us understand that. because to many people it sounds like that's a lot of shots in a situation like this. >> well, what we do, in a situation where an officer is faced with a threat of deadly harm. what we do is train an officer to deal with that thread tlet by responding to it. with deadly force and responding
to it until the threat is gone. so when an officer feels that he needs to use deadly force, he or she needs to use it. they're taught to use it until the threat has ended. so again, i don't think people realize how quickly one can fire that many shots. and it can happen very, very quickly. but again, you're taught to do that until the threat has ended. so whether it's one shot or five shots or 12 shots or 17 shots, you fire until the threat has ended. and that's what happened here. >> counsel, i appreciate you being on with us very much this morning. because the facts are all-important. there's no question whether it's st. louis or ferguson, there's a culture of policing issue there. the community needs to have better relationships going on. needs more information so we appreciate it. >> and thank you and i will tell you, it's not just here, it's transparency around the country. these are conversations that we have to have. and again, it's sad that this only now happens when we face these tragedies.
but the more we can say, the more people understand what police do, the more confident they're going to be in what police do. i thank you for the opportunity. >> neil bruntrager, happy to talk to you, hopefully we'll talk again. >> thanks a lot. 12 minutes past the hour. we'll give awe look at headlines now, breaking this morning, north and south korea reportedly exchanging artillery fire across the border. the clash coming as north korea marks the 69th anniversary of its ruling party. we're not given any word on casualties, we'll keep an eye on that. meanwhile, kim jong-un is still m.i.a., the 31-year-old north korean leader has not been seen in public in 37 days. he missed a ceremonial palace visit to the remains of his father and grandfather. more ahead in a live report from south korea later in the hour. breaking news out of syria, witnesses tell cnn isis militants are gaining ground towards kobani city center now. this as u.s.-led air strikes
pound isis position there is. the military group reportedly sending in reinforcements to battle kurdish forces in their attempt to capture the city. u.s. officials on record saying they cannot stop kobani from falling into isis hands, they're trying to get the turkish government more involved in the fight against the extremists. hong kong's government canceling talks with pro democracy protest leaders. at the same time, political rivals are calling for hong kong's leader to resign over claims he expected millions of dollars in private payments while in office. so this happened -- a pony, a fugitive, however you want to typify this. had the as you aw dasty to escape from a field in england. walked into a police station and walked right out again. the guys at first seemed a
little surprised. and but they handled it right. the one guy got a little bit like hey, i don't know -- >> is this like some kind of -- >> it's a police station. >> generally people frown when horses walk into buildings. chris. >> maybe he had something important to report. >> do you think they treated him the right way when he came in? >> chris wants to have a debate about it. >> not a lot of words were exchan exchanged. neigh a word was spoken. >> strong, neigh a word was spoken. >> the police officer said -- why the long face? >> oh! >> they write themselves. >> this is good stuff today. >> that is strong. strong. speaking of jokes, he claims it was a joke but no one was laughing when an american passenger on a u.s. airways flight to the dominican republic sparked an all-out ebola scare. we'll tell you what he said that brought medics in hazmat suits rushing onto the plane.
when diet and exercise aren't enough, adding crestor lowers bad cholesterol up to 55%. yeah! crestor is not for people with liver disease or women who are nursing, pregnant, or may become pregnant. tell your doctor all medicines you take. call your doctor if you have muscle pain or weakness, feel unusually tired, have loss of appetite, upper belly pain, dark urine, or yellowing of skin or eyes. these could be signs of serious side effects. are you down with crestor? ask your doctor about crestor.
two hours to clear the plane after the prankster made the announcement. you can only imagine how frustrated passengers may have been. the whole episodunder scores the point that health officials are prepared to act immediately if they sense even a whiff of a problem to that end, five airports in the u.s. have announced they will add additional screening measures, they're going to be screening any passengers that arrive here from the ebola-affected area. that means that passengers will have to submit to having their temperatures taken and have to answer a series of health questions, the process will be similar to what passengers have to do when they leave the hot zone. a cdc officer will be on site. the supervisor can take over any case that raises concern. the goal is to add an extra layer to security to contain the spread of the deadly virus. at the same time health officials are admitting there will be passengers who are checked out that could show potential symptoms. they don't want to cause alarm. just want to investigate it fully. >> alexandra, thanks so much for the update.
a dallas hospital is defending its treatment of a liberian man who died of ebola. the family of thomas eric duncan says texas health presbyterian hospital did not provide him the same quality of care as three infected white people. they insist his nationality and lack of insurance are to blame. let's get more on this. let's go to dallas and bring in senior medical correspondent, elizabeth cohen. what do we know? >> some family members plaintiff duncan say there may have been some racial reasons why he didn't survive and the white patients did. or maybe it was because he was african, not from the united states. so the hospital issued this statement yesterday -- mr. duncan was treated the way any other patient would have been treated. regardless of nationality or ability to pay for care. we have a long history of treating a multicultural community in this area. >> now, these are the particulars of what the family thinks was sort of inequitable
care. first of all, mr. duncan never received a blood donation from an ebola survivor. the world health organization says that such a donation can possibly help boost antibodies to help the person who is sick survive. now the hospital said yesterday, that there was no donor, they couldn't find a donor who matched his, who matched mr. duncan's blood type. and mr. duncan received an experimental medication six days into his hospitalization here. whereas other patients in the united states received an experimental medication immediately upon hospitalization. now the hospital here in texas says look, we gave it to him when his condition mandated it. i've been talking to doctors who treat ebola and they're not quite sure what they mean by that. because the sooner you get medicine, the better. they don't know why you would want to wait six days. chris? >> there are legitimate questions, no question about that, elizabeth, thank you very much. alisyn? we have an update. six u.s. military planes have
arrived in the ebola hot zone in west africa. 100 more marines are joining the 300 american troops in liberia to help. is this enough to contain the outbreak? let's ask debra malleck, the u.s. ambassador to liberia. you are in liberia this morning. tell us what the scene is on the ground there. >> well the good news is, is that we continue to build momentum every day. the pieces of the international response and the pieces of the u.s. government's hall of government response are all starting to come together. we all have a lot more work to do and we need a lot more people and a lot more assistance to help us get this done. but the trend is positive. but it will take us a while. >> we understand that you were on hand yesterday to welcome six u.s. military planes, they arrived with help. and they have begun, i believe, constructing 17 treatment centers for patients. when might those be ready? >> well that will be a scaled,
scaled construction process. so one is already under way. two are in the planning process, one starts actually groundbreaking is under way. a third one will be started on monday. and the planning process for getting all of the various pieces that are needed in order to do those construction projects outside of monrovia, are starting to flow in. but it will happen over a period of the next two to four weeks. depending on the locations. because some of them are quite remote and difficult to get to. so being able to stage equipment, stage the supplies and get the people out to those areas, will take, take some time. but it's prioritized based on what the government here has decided are the most important counties that need to go first. >> as of this morning, we believe there are 8,011 cases in west africa of ebola and that they doubled, those cases are estimated to double every 15 to 20 days. some politicians here in the
u.s., as well as some african nation leaders have said that we are woefully late getting started. are you concerned that the u.s., while it's very helpful, has started this process too late. >> we're well into the fight. the u.s. government has been here since march. when the very first cases were discovered here in liberia. and certainly before that, in guinea. we've had cdc on the ground almost continuously since then. obviously they have been beefing up their presence. over the last couple of months. we now of course have the addition of our dart team. our disaster assistance team which came in in early august. helping to galvanize and organize the u.s. government response. and the u.s. military's arrival just adds additional energy and heft to the effort we have ongoing. we work very well with our international partners here and with the government of liberia in support of a plan that is moving us forward. >> i want to ask you about a study that was done last year by
transparency international. they found that liberia was the most corrupt country in the world. how can we know that all the international aid that's pouring in is actually going to patients and people affected? >> well from what we can see here on the ground, the assistance that's been coming in, a lot of which is not money that's being handed over either to the government or to entities. a lot of it is assistance in kind, technical assistance, and supplies and other equipment. the government itself has set up its own trust fund to, to collect, contributions from donors, in addition the government, the president sirleaf has been quite vocal about the fact she is requiring the various parts of the liberian government to account for the money that they receive, either from within their own budget or money that comes from this trust fund. so we are doing everything that we can to bolster that and certainly the partners are leaning on the government here,
very hard to insure that there is the full transparency. >> so madam ambassador, how long do you think it will take to contain the outbreak in liberia? >> i'm not an epidemiologist, alisyn, it's very hard for me to make a prediction. what i can predict is we will get on top of it here. every outbreak of ebola around the world has always been eradicated. we know what needs to happen. in order to make that happen. we need to get, we need to break the chain of transmission and reduce the number of people who are infected. so we will get there. the numbers are large. the scope is something beyond anything that anyone has seen. but we will get there. our goal is to build momentum and build on every single intervention. >> how are you staying safe? while you're there? >> it's difficult to catch this disease. you must have close contact with someone who is visibly ill. and unless you're a health care worker or someone who is dealing with dead bodies, preparing dead
bodies, it's very difficult to catch this disease. >> ambassador deborah malac, good luck while you're there and thanks so much for taking time with us this morning. >> thanks, alisyn, it's been my pleasure. it's good it hear what's going on in ground zero in the fight against ebola. we want to tell you this morning about a mystery that seems to be deepening. kim jong-un. a no-show at a key political event. the move now, fueling more speculation about his whereabouts and his grip on power. we have a live report ahead. and hillary clinton kicks off her 2014 mid-term message. what does that mean? is this a presidential campaign preview or what? john king will have more on "inside politics." r) it's happening. today, more and more people with type 2 diabetes are learning about long-acting levemir®, an injectable insulin that can give you blood sugar control for up to 24 hours. and levemir® helps lower your a1c.

it is time to get "inside politics" on "new day." you know what that means, my friends? >> john king? >> yes. we have a model of you on set. >> there's a cure for that. that's nice, that's nice. >> it looks more like chris. >> the perfect man. >> before my hair grayed. three and a half weeks to election day, chris and alisyn, back to you in a minute. with me, julia pace of the "associated press," alex burns of politico. hillary clinton, her first official stump speech. she was in pennsylvania yesterday with the candidate for governor, standing next to him. delivering a stump speech. a lot of energy, enthusiasm. a 2014 message with maybe 2016 implications. a tip of the cap, hillary clinton had for her new
granddaughter. and then this -- >> you never know what can happen in an election, ken. from my perspective, you can't count on things turning out the way you want it. unless you get out and work for it, right? >> can't count on things turning out the way you want, unless you work for them. 2008, a little bad memory there? >> one of the things that hillary is going to have to do if she moves forward with the campaign is have a little humor about the way the 2008 went. she's note going to be ail to totally whitewash that and having the self-deprecating attitude will go over well. the speech was interesting because it was a turning of the corner for her. she's given some pretty bland speeches over the summer on her book tour, this had more heft to it. you could see it moving in a direction, not just for the 2014 mention. but the 2016 message. >> democrats are hoping in tight races they believe trying to get women to turn out at a higher
percentage than they normally do during a an election is key. turning out women, playing up women's economic issues. plays into 2016 for hillary clinton, doesn't it? >> the party has been saying all year that they need to deliver a strong closing message on economic opportunity. and just maximize their advantage among women, that's what hillary clinton talked about. it was surprising under the circumstances, upbeat speech about just american potential for the future. that's another hurd that will she's going to have to clear as a candidate. how do you make somebody who first came into national politics over 20 years ago, a candidate of the future? >> new and different. that's a great point. she was talking optimist click about the future. hitting on problems and trying to be upbeat. a candidate of change. is hillary clinton a candidate of change? >> the current president of the united states was out on the west coast. listen to president obama here in santa monica talking about the republicans, he knows how this works. in two presidential elections, president obama received two-thirds of the latino vote. he said republicans have a problem when it comes to immigration, but they don't seem
to want to solve it. >> it's anybody's guess how republicans are thinking about this. if they were thinking long-term politically. it is suicide for them not to do this. because the demographics of the country are such, where are you going to lose an entire generation of immigrants who are looking around and saying, you know what, that party does not seem to care much about me and my life. >> he's right about the demographics, it's hard to see the republicans competing at the presidential level. never mind in two years, but four years after that. and four years after that what about himself. he has a group of people saying the party doesn't seem to care about me and my life. there's a lot of latino frustration that he has repeatedly promised, to submit legislation or take executive action and they've got nothing. >> this is a worrying thing for some people in the white house, a lot of latino advocates
outside of the white house who say we've been with you, barack obama, we believe that you were going to push immigration reform through the hill. you promised us this. you promised us would take executive action and now we're left with nothing. while there may have been a proclivity towards obama from hispanic voters and democrats for a long time, maybe that's not the case. democrats will argue on the other side republicans don't have a record to stand on there, either. but there is a sense that maybe latinos have been taken for granted by this white house. >> i don't think speaker boehner, and perhaps we'll see what happens, majority leader mcconnell if republicans were going to take the senate are going to take their advice from president obama. but is there any indication in this mid-term campaign that they will move on immigration reform? because the president is right about the demographics, whether they like it or not, coming from a democrat or not. if you look at the last two presidential elections, it's hard to see the republicans as a presidential party if they don't fix that. >> he's clearly right. i think if you put most members of a republican leadership in a polygraph they would glee he's right. they're not putting themselves
into a polygraph. to the extent they've moved to the right, that they've suddenly revived amnesty-bashing, border control in their television ads, in their debates, going after democrats, raising the prospect that lack of immigration controls is going to bring ebola and isis to our shores, that's not the rhetoric the party is going to need in 2016, but it's rhetoric that's been effective this year. >> unlikely. we'll see what happens. sometimes the morning after an election, everything changes, but alex is dead right, the republicans moving more to the right closer to election day. here's a democrat who should have thought this question might come up. allison grimes is the candidate against mitch mcconnell, the republican leader. if the republicans can pick up six seats and he wins his race, he would be the marge ort leader. president obama's approval rating in kentucky is somewhere in the 30s. he's been a drag on allison grimes in this campaign. you're a democrat, you know he's an issue, you should be able to answer a pretty simple question. did you vote for him?
>> i was actually a delegate for hillary clinton and i think kentuckiens know i'm a clinton democrat through and through. i respect the sanctity of the ballot box and i know the members of this editorial board do as well. >> you're not going to answer? >> i don't think that the president is on the ballot as much as mitch mcconnell might want him to be. >> the problem with that, alex, i understand the president is a drag in kentucky on her campaign, but if you don't answer the question, yesterday, you're going to be asked it today. and if you don't answer it today, you're going to be asked it tomorrow and that's not what she wants to be talking about three weeks to election day. >> of all the unbelievable unforced errors we have seen in this campaign. kentucky voters have seen tens of millions of dollars in tv ads linking allison grimes to barack obama. it beggars understanding why she thinks answering a question like this is going to make people suddenly realize, my goodness, she's a democrat. this is what happens when you run a campaign that's based on saying as little as possible on
your ideas about energy and health care and what you do in washington and just trying to let mitch mcconnell hang himself on his own unpopularity. >> another unforced error, kay haggon, the democratic incumbent in north carolina. who missed a hearing. her staff was saying she was at another hearing. she finally succeede conceded s a fundraiser in new york city. it became a flashpoint in her debate with republican tom tillis yesterday. >> senator hagan thinks a cocktail fundraiser hosted on park avenue by a wall street executive is a better priority than doing her job in washington. >> the writers got that one. park avenue, fundraiser, by a wall street executive. having cocktails. >> it's got all the buzz words in there. i mean it doesn't look good. especially in the context of what's happening now with the islamic state group. you know this was a hearing that happened a while ago. it goes to the point that president obama and democrats
kind of missed the memo on the islamic state. that being said, you would be hard-pressed to find a lawmaker on capitol hill who has attended every hearing in the committees that they're on. they don't go to all of the hearings. >> but if you didn't, if you didn't and your staff is saying one thing, clear up the record. get the facts out there, whether they're good or bad, as quickly as possible. >> do candidates in the tight races make late errors? late errors could make the difference zbl difference. >> i'm going to go with yes. >> tensions are high. >> exactly. >> be sure to tune in sunday at 8:30 sunday as john king and his "inside politics" panel dissect the best political news of the week. we showed you the shocking video of police in indiana smashing in a family's window and tazing the passenger. now the family is coming forward and talking about her violent

we have more breaking news out of the koreas this morning. south korean activists released balloons filled with anti-north flyers, north korea sponsds by firing on them for about 20 minutes. the drama unfolding as questions swirl over the whereabouts of kim jong-un. overnight, the 31-year-old leader was a no-show failing to appear at a palace ceremony honoring his late father and grandfather. according to north korean news agencies, flowers were presented in kim's absence. but where was he? let's bring in paula hancocks, live from seoul. what do we know, paula? >> well, chris, certainly we know what has happened today,
this incident, is pretty much the most serious incident we've seen between north and south korea for about four years. exchanging fire over that very tense border as you say, balloons were launched across the border trying to tell north korean residents according to the activists what the regime was like. they were fired on by north korea and south korea gave a warning and responded. no casualties on this side of the border, we don't know about the north. chris? >> here's the follow-up question for you -- what is the best information about where kim jong-un would be? is it illness? is it this is a stunt? or as a wild card, is he just recovering from a bender? well five weeks on, you'd hope it's not the latter, what we have at this point is most experts, most officials are assuming it is health issues. we know he's been limping, we've
seen it on state-run media we know from the same state-run media that he has been described as having discomfort. and what we've heard today, just a couple of hours ago from south korea's defense ministry is that the minister believes that he is in pongua hospital in pyongyang. where his father, the late kim jong-un and his grandfather, the founder of north korea, were treated for illnesses in the past. so the assumption in south korea is that he is ill. they said they believe the leadership is normal. they're counting out any option of there being a coup or him being having been deposed by the military. most experts here as well are saying that's pretty unlikely. chris? >> obviously could have major implications and we will stay on it. paula hancocks, thank you very much. now there's video that's captured the nation's attention. we're going to want to talk about it you've seen it, indiana cops smashing in a car window, tazing the man in the passenger's seat. this was a seat belt traffic
stop. now another woman is coming forward, saying one of the officers involved tackled her. we'll get her story ahead. and this sunday at 9:00 p.m. on cnn's "parts unknown" anthony bourdain goes in search of his past in paraguay. let's watch. >> i'm told you're a man who can help me. what do you do? >> may i call you tony? >> please. >> are you for the first time in the country? >> first time in paraguay, yes. this bar in the city has always been a central switchboard, a gathering place. lido-bar. ladies in orange vests cook and serve old-school paraguay working class food to people of every walk of life. >> i've been here for more than 50 years. >> let's get something to eat, i'm hungry. >> okay. >> empanadsa, big envelopes of
of using excessive force during a traffic stop in indian nap by now you've probably seen the video, and the shocking end to 13-minute stand-off between indiana family and the hammond police department. turns out it's not the first time these officers have been accused of using excessive force. cnn's susan candiotti has more. >> have you seen that video? >> absolutely. my goodness, it just brings back memories. >> reporter: yolanda gray does more than cringe seeing this video of police smashing in a car window, after a couple of stopped for not wearing see belts. >> [ bleep ]. >> reporter: it shows hammond,
indiana, police using a stun gun on passenger jamal jones after he refuses to get out of his girlfriend's car during 13-minute stand-off. two children are in the backseat. yolanda gray recognize the officer shattering the window. >> that's the guy, the same one, that tackled me, the one that busts the glass open oh my gosh. the baby's crying. i heard my baby crying. she was standing in the street. >> reporter: in 2006, gray and her family were pulled out of their car moments after leaving their driveway. no one told them why. police ordered her husband to get out of the car. he complied. this is where it happened? >> this is exactly where it happened. they asked me to get out of the car. i get out of the car with my hands up and the one that tackled me came from this side of the street and as i was almost where i needed to be, he tackled me. i never saw him coming.
>> reporter: gray says she was bruised and man handled after being put down on the street. according to court papers, police say she refused to get out of the car and when will she did started running before police tackled her. >> my oldest son jumps out of the car screaming, that's my mom, that's my mom, he was put into a chokehold, and a gun put on his head. >> reporter: and your other son? >> i my other son was taken out of the car and he was handcuffed. >> reporter: your daughter? >> my daughter, they didn't even -- no one attended to the baby. >> reporter: turns out, she and her lawyers say, a case of mistaken identity, police were allegedly look for a man who she says looked nothing like her husband. yet gray's husband was charged with disorderly conduct, and they were both also charged with resisting an officer. she says she declined a plea offer before trial. >> they said they would give us one last chance if we would just write a letter of apology, they would drop all of the charges.
>> reporter: and you said? >> absolutely not. >> reporter: the couple was acquitted, and sued the same officer, two others, and the city on a civil rights claim. they settled out of court. so when she heard and saw the glass shattering incident a few weeks ago, it hit home. what kind of memories does this bring back to you? >> oh, the most horrific memories. my kids' innocence were taken that day. >> reporter: a lot of people are asking, why didn't the man just get out of the car and get out of the car might have ended the whole thing? >> i am enraged every time someone makes that comment, because they have no idea. and we did that they asked but the moment that we got out, that was when the horrific horacement started. >> reporter: cnn has been unable to reach the police department for comment on the 2006 case. the officer who gray says tackled her, coincidentally, the same one seen breaking the glass
in this separate incident, also could not be reached. in a statement issued this week, police said the window was broken because officers were concerned for their safety after the passenger reached for a backpack in the rear seat and refused lawful orders to get out of the car. the incident a few weeks ago, it hit home. >> different state, same story. go from indiana, st. louis, missouri, we have another place on edge because of an incident involving the cops and civilians. this time, the fatal shooting of a black teen by an off-duty police officer. that's the story that's going on there. looking at what happened as a result. police officer says the teenager shot first, nonetheless, protests overnight. threatening almost a spiral out of control. this is going on not far from where michael brown was killed. we'll take you there live for the latest.
year's nobel peace prize, you know her face, malala yousafzai. recognizes for her endless campaign for girls' education in pakistan. >> and at the forefront of stopping child slave labor in india for decades won the prestigious award. akita shubert brings us the latest from london. good morning. >> reporter: that's right, good morning. well, malala yousafzai, of course, has -- is one of the joint winners of the nobel peace prize, here in birmingham. we are expecting a statement around 4:30 low time but she has been an outspoken advocate for children's education. she's here in birmingham because, of course, she was targeted by the taliban in her home pakistan and shot in the head at very close range by a taliban assassin. it shattered her skull, and she had to be brought here to birmingham for reconstructive surgery. and she has made birmingham her home ever since then.
she's gone on, to speak at u.n., and become an outspoken advocate, as i said, not just for girls' education in pakistan but children's rights around the world and that's what this award was about, it was about children's rights, not only awarded to malala yousafzai, but also to kalai in india, alisyn. >> thank you so much for that update. great to see her so well-recognized globally. great story. also breaking overnight, violence is erupting on the streets of st. louis following fatal shooting of a black teenager by an off-duty police officer after authorities say was a physical altercation and possibly shooting. one protester calling st. louis a racial poured keg. just miles away in ferguson, missouri, where michael brown was shot, protesters plan a weekend of, quote, resistance. that's where we find sara sidner live in ferguson. how has ferguson responded to the latest incident? >> reporter: well, at this point in time, it's quiet here.
it's quiet in st. louis. overnight, though, not quiet at all. two people arrested, according to police, and a police officer injured when protests erupted over another case that people are likening to the case of michael brown. overnight, shaw boulevard turned chaotic. police using pepper spray on the crowd of protesters after the tense stand-off escalates. >> large knife came flying out of the crowd. >> reporter: police say they were asking the crowd of protester to disperse around midnight. when this knife here on the ground was hurled towards the officers, hitting one in the shoulder. >> it shows how the emotions and how quickly this situation can turn. >> reporter: protesters also smashing the windows of a police car. someone throwing a brick at this police suv. >> i understand the emotions but there are some things you can't tolerate and that's one of them. >> reporter: what started out as a peaceful virgil early thursday
evening later reignited anger over the killing of black teenager meyers, shot by a white off-duty st. louis police officer working a security job. meyers was no stranger to them. pictured here for a gun charge back in june. autopsy revealed 18-year-old was shot seven or eight times, the fatal wound, a gunshot to his right cheek. >> this is what democracy looks like. >> reporter: a call for justice reminiscent over the outrage over michael brown's shooting only two months ago. allegedly with his hands up, brown was shot six times by a white police officer, only 12 miles away in ferguson, missouri. a grand jury is currently hearing the case and will decide if charges will be brought against officer darren wilson. but this most recent shooting may be different. police say meyers fired a .9 millimeter pistol three times at the officer. the officer then firing a total of 17 times. the weapon recovered at the scene.
meyers' family members insist, though, the teenager was unarmed, and holding a sandwich at the time. >> we have a right to have a life just like anyone else. >> reporter: and some people are building their own narrative, expressing disrupt of the st. louis police department. >> it's a clear case of this young man being gunned down by insensitive white officer who was off-duty. he chased him off a corner. >> reporter: protesters pushing the limit with police and burning the american flag. in this divided community, racial tensions and nerves on edge again. >> again, facts very much in dispute and helping to make the situation more confusing and more frustrating. let's try to understand better what happened, what should happen going forward. bring in missouri state senator and david clinger, former lapd officer, now associate professor of criminal justice at university of missouri, st. louis. thank you to both of you.
senator, let me start with you. one thing that is definitely needed and missing in this situation, both in ferguson and in greater st. louis is leadership. where is the governor? where are the leaders, the community leaders, the politici politicians, getting between the police and angry citizens, trying to create dialogue and to do things you know you have to do in these situations? it seems absent again. unfair criticism? >> that is fair criticism, and that's a great question. where is the governor? you know, is and out last night with those protesters. i have my own personal -- i was out with the protesters last night and encouraging all of them to be peaceful and step up to the plate and do the right thing. we know there are bad officers out there, and we know there are good officers out there. but what we have to do, we have to weed out the bad officers and begin to build a relationship
with community and law enforcement within this community. because what you're seeing right now is the unrest within the community is a direct correlation to the disconnect when it comes to police officers and community. >> mr. clinger, we've talked about this before, the chief involve here was very open after the shooting and death of a mentally disturbed man who was holding a knife. he came out addressed the community, gave facts. he didn't really do that here yet. and there are facts that are known. either the kid had a sandwich or a gun. that's an important fact. why aren't they coming out with it one way or the other? >> well, my understanding is that chief dotson has. he held a press conference and explained the narrative as he understood it in terms of what the investigation brought forth to that point. he noted that the individual had a firearm, that the officer didn't fire at first, the suspect fired three rounds, the
officer returned fire. >> has to be done the right way. he put it out. this other story came out and it needs to be countered because you have to have full information so the people around him know what to believe and what not to believe. let me stay with you, professor. in a situation like this, an off-duty cop, shouldn't have been going after these kids. is that oversimplifying the context? he was in uniform, doing a patrol -- >> that's oversimplifying it. no, he's in uniform, he's working his security detail, police officers all over the country do this type of stuff. and from what i understand, at least, there were three individuals, they ran, raised a suspicion, one confronted him there was some type of fight that included a gun battle. and if that's the case, i don't understand why people are so upset. now if it turns out the investigation indicates that the officer did something wrong, then it would be obviously a problem. it turns out the suspect didn't
have a gun, he didn't fire any shots, and he only had a sandwich, of course that would be a huge problem but all of the evidence that i'm aware of, through the press releases from the police department, indicate that a gun battle happened. and i really don't understand how people can be upset with a police officer who shoots somebody who is trying to murder him. >> senator, do you have a concern this was excessive force? and if so, why? >> i truly believe that this is a case of racial profiling turning deadly. you have several young men simply hanging out on the corner, there was no 911 calls, none whatsoever. a police officer who was not on duty at the timing a security guard, approached those guys, and the question is, why did the off-duty police officer approach those young men? what were they doing? what was the suspicion? for them to flee, what gives you the right to chase them?
why are you chasing them? what did they do so wrong that you have to pursue them, chase them down, and then as a result we have a killing? >> all right. well now -- >> what did he do? i mean, is it illegal -- is it illegal to stand and congregate on a street corner? >> senator, i believe there are answers to the question ands i believe klinger may know them. my understanding of the case, he drove down in a patrol car, doing patrol for the community, turned around when he saw the men, when the men saw him turn around they ran than gave him reasonable suspicion, he pursued and in the pursuit there wound up being a gun battle. is that all legit action? >> that's my understanding. and, yes, and as the senator points out, a police officer can't just stop people for no reason. but a 911 call is not the only way that a police officer can develop reasonable suspicion to stop somebody.
and police officers are trained to look for particular characteristics of things out of sort, the supreme court ruled on this back in the '60s in the case of terry versus ohio a police officer, if he has reasonable suspicion the crime may abfoot he's allowed to detain people and question them. people flee from a lawful detention, police officer has a right to pursue them. nobody unany circumstances, regardless of what might be going on has a right to pull a gun and shoot at a police officer. >> senator, are you overlooking the fact that the young man may have mad a gun and shot at the police officer? isn't that the most important fact in the situation? >> you know, that was a tragic situation, both for the law enforcement community as well as the family. however, again, when you have young men simply standing on a street corner, not bothering anyone, just hanging out, having a dialogue, having a discussion, and then someone approaches them, a police officer, which is off-duty at the time, approaches
them, the question is why? i mean, what was the purpose for the approach? >> i agree with that. we need to understand what the reasonable suspicion was but the other thing you have to understand, ma'am, is police officers have the right, what we call common law inquiry. any police officer can walk up to anybody and talk to them. if the person refuses to talk to them, they're free to walk away. but if we have a circumstance where a police officer approaches someone and there is a reasonable suspicion that criminal activity may be afoot, then a police officer has a right to detain, and we need to know that. we need to understand that. and i don't know whether the officer had reasonable suspicion. the investigation will answer that. so we have to wait. so i'm not going to jump to a conclusion. and i would hope that you and everyone else would not jump to conclusions. let the investigation run its course, let's find out. >> it does go to the fact right now police can know, they've talked to the officer, i'm sure, many times, go to the shop owner there, talk to anybody else that
was there, looking for kids. they can find out, that information does need to come out because it does go to suspicion that fuels mistrust of police in the area. the sooner we know, the better. professor, thank you senator, thank you for being on the show. please join us again as we learn more. >> thank you. >> a lot of other news this morning. >> chris, thanks so much. headlines, we want to start with breaking news. south korea launching balloons with anti-pyongyang flyers. the north reportedly fired on those balloons for 20 minutes. all of this happening as kim jong-un remains m.i.a. the 31-year-old north korean leader has not been seen or viewed in public in some 37 days. and in fact, he overnight missed a ceremonial palace visit to see remains and pay respects of his father and grandfather. we want to talk about what's going on on the border of syria and turkey. the militants are gaining ground

let them do their job. >> reporter: the flight from philadelphia checked and cleared but kept passengers stuck on the plane for two hours. it's unclear what happened to the man who made the claim. this incident only the beginning of a new front in the fight to stop the spread of ebola. passengers leaving the hot zone will be checked for symptoms, answering questions and having their temperatures taken when they arrive state side at five major u.s. airports. new york city's jfk international, newark, washington dulles, atlanta, chicago o'hare. >> we expect to see patients with fever and that will cause some obvious and understandable concern at the airports. >> reporter: more than 50 million passengers traveled through jfk last year. but the new procedures will impact just a tiny fraction. exams will be done in special areas designated by customs and border protection. onsite cdc health officer will
step into evaluate any potential ebola case. passengers leaving sierra leone, liberia, guinea already screened before boarding planes out of those countries. >> of course, i'm concerned. i don't think there's anybody in the country who is not concerned about the situation with ebola. we're not ready at the airports yet but we will be. >> reporter: jfk will be the first airport to implement the new regulations, they'll start screenings tomorrow. the other four airports should start some time next week. we're already hearing similar plans are in place in london and canada. expect a lot of airports could be looking at these regulations. >> thank you very much. you know, alisyn, we're all afraid of the unknown. one thing that known, if you get ebola, you can beat it. we have somebody on now who knows that, don't we? >> absolutely. great story. as america steps up defenses against ebola, next guest is one of the lucky few who survived, nancy writebol one of the first
two americans medevac'd to the u.s. after contracting ebola in west africa. she joins us now. good morning, nancy. >> good morning, how are you? >> i'm doing well. it's great to see you. i guess the question is, how are you? you look great. how are you feeling? >> thank you. i'm doing wonderful, thanks. getting stronger each and every day. >> you know, it's been a little more than two months since you were brought back here to the u.s. for treatment. what has your recovery been like? was it gradual or sudden that you felt better? >> no, it's been gradual. there have been good days and there have been bad days, and just regaining my stamina and just growing stronger. and i can see evidence of just beinging able to walk further and just be stronger each day. >> and, nancy, can you tell us about your experience when you were in the throes of ebola?
what did it feel like? >> well, very weak. and i ran a temperature of -- a high temperature for quite a while, a long time. you know, just going through just always feeling really second and having to deal with even with diarrhea and the weakness, the fever. just being very, very weak. >> and did you think during that time that you would survive? >> i want sure at first because i had seen the -- what ebola does to people and we had had 40 patients in our isolation unit when i took sick, and out of those 40 patients only 1 survived. so i knew what the outcome was. and so i didn't really know
whether i would survive. >> you were working as a missionary in a hospital in liberia when you contracted the disease. today, do you know how you got ebola? >> no, and i think that will always be the question. and it's a question that we talk about often. you know, we think about, there are some different ideas about how i might have contacted it. but we don't really know for sure and i don't think we ever real. >> it's a mystery. you say you were doing all of the safety measures, wearing all of the protective gear. so what's your theory? >> right. well, it's very possible that i contracted ebola outside of the unit, not within. of course i came in contact with people outside of our hospital and i remember knowing and being with a gentleman one time that
later -- later died of ebola. and it's possible that there was, you know, some contact there. we just don't really know. >> as you know, the liberian patient who was being treated here in dallas, thomas duncan, did die this week from liberia there's a lot of questions. his treatment. one criticism is that he was not given a blood transfusion from a survivor. were you asked to donate blood to mr. duncan? >> i was asked if i would be willing to donate, and i said yes, i would be happy to donate. however, my blood type did not match his. and so i have always been willing and i would be very happy to donate the plasma that's needed for someone who does have ebola. >> it's nice to know that you were asked. that answers a big question, because that hospital has come
under some fire for not going to every length to try to help him. so it's good to know that you were asked but unfortunately you weren't a match. were you given the experimental zmapp treatment? >> yes, i was. >> do you credit that with your survival, or do you think there was something else? >> well, i think, for me, there might have been several things. i also received a blood transfusion, not from a survivor, but i just needed blood. and then, of course, all of the care, the supportive care that i received played a big part. but i do think that zmapp probably was what stabilized the ebola virus so that i could get the supportive care that i needed. >> as you know, there's another american fighting for his life in a nebraska hospital, nbc freelance cameraman. what's your message to him this
morning? >> well, we have really been praying for him and i just want to encourage him that, you know, there are good days and bad days with ebola. some days you feel really good, the next day you thinking i don't even want to get out of bed. so i just want to encourage him to fight and to just do everything that's possible that you can to recover. >> yeah. you were working, as we said, as a missionary in liberia when you contracted the disease. do you think you'll go back? >> well, you know, that's a matter of discussion that is being talked about. it's very possible that we might go back. we're just asking the lord for his direction on that and waiting for the right time to be able to go back. >> nancy writebol, you are a lovely person to talk to with a great message of survival and
perseverance, happy that you're doing so well. >> thank you so much. thanks for asking me to be here this morning. >> our pleasure. we'll talk to you again. >> okay. bye. >> well, it's an epic customer service battle, angry customer tries to get a refund from comcast but he says comcast got him fired. he joins us live.

this could rank up with the nastiest customer service battle. a californian accountant says complaining about his cable service cost him his job. conal o'rourke fired from pricewaterhousecoopers. conal o'rourke and his attorney join us this morning from mountain view, california, where it's awfully early. thanks for getting up to tell us this tale. good morning to both of you. i'm going it take you back to 2013 and give the hits, runs and errors. you had a series of issues with service, internet speeshgd billing issues, you tried to get resolved first half-heartedly
seemingly addressed. your work takes you out of the country for a couple of months you return to see things that you had hoped to be resolved were not resolved. in fact, had gotten worse, including you found a delivery of expensive equipment at your door, things you didn't order. you decide to go down to a comcast store to rectify it and let's say it didn't go well. you took it to corporate and that's where things went sideways. have i got it right? >> you have it absolutely right. >> so you go to corporate and then what happens? >> i reached out to corporate, had a pleasant initial conversation, they said they'd put somebody in touch with me. they did. an individual, evelyn, had called me, asking me what it was about, how can i help you, and i said, do you know why you're calling? she said, yes, about a missed appointment. from there it went bad.
she stated that the appointment was not missed and that we documented the call of your home, there there what happened, she -- she went on to say what's the color of your house? just tell me the color of your house. and really berating -- >> it's starting to get aggressive? >> yeah, it was aggressive. and i incidentally, i live in a home that's of spanish architecture, there's multicolors, depending upon which way you look at it, it could be terra-cotta, sand, beige, exactly what the -- they have in their system, i have no idea. >> but again, you're trying to make sense of all of this and it escalates and escalates. i'm having to truncate it for time. for the benefit of viewers it escalates to a point where you find out that you are then released from your job. you are fired from your job at
pricewaterhousecoopers, however -- >> correct. >> -- what was said to you? why were you told you were fired? >> they said that there was an investigation and it revealed what they claimed that i had mentioned that i was with pwc. >> did you mention you were with price water house coops and why is that an issue, even. >> no. the things that i think got me a little bit in -- on the hot seat was that i had stated that i felt their accounting has overstated revenues were overstated. >> you're an accountant, you would know those sort of things. >> exactly. >> right. so i cited some language and then also that i felt that with everybody having billing
problems that perhaps it need to go to pcaob. >> you wanted to take it higher because you wanted to end these problems for other people, you figured you were an example of other problems other people were having. now comcast claims they did not ask for you to be fired, but did not deny that they spoke to your employer about you. they did acknowledge that comcast executives talked to your highers-up at pricewaterhousecoopers and you think that's where things get murky and ug. >> i absolutely. they went to his employer and told his employer that he had tried to use their name as leverage, that he violated accounting ethics. that's not a minor charge to make. that's not -- they knew what was going to happen once they made that complaint. so in their apology to conal, we learned about from reporters contacting us, they didn't reach out with the apology, we found it online, like everyone else, they say, we didn't ask him for
him to be fired, but it sort of very imprecise language that leaves open, you know, the fact that they did, and they've admitted, they started an ethics investigation against him. >> pricewaterhousecoopers says you violated terms of ethical standards and practices. you are aware as an accountant about those ethics and practices, are you not? >> correct. >> but do you feel that you overstepped? you know better than anybody the types of things that you should say. do you feel -- >> no, i -- >> go ahead. >> no, i do not believe that. and during the -- they had a very limited investigation so i was on the phone for less than 25 minutes. then the next thing i know i had been terminated and there was no -- there was my input was not even relevant. >> i've got to read the response from comcast. he wasn't given a chance to
respond. the apology cam cast issued, what happened with service is unacceptable despite our attempts to address mr. o'rourke's issue we simply dropped the ball and did not make things right. mr. o'rourke deserves another apology, we're making this public, you say it's not public. comcast goes on to say we want to clarify nobody at comcast asked for him to be fired. ultimately, we have to wrap things up here, what do you want out of this? file a lawsuit against comcast, your job back, reinstated? >> i would love to be reinstated. i don't think that pwc did the due diligence and i would love to be reinstated. and i'd also at this point, price water house announced that i've been fired for ethics. so, that's all over the press. and that's just wrong. >> wish you could go back and undo some of it,en say some of the things you said or handled it differently? i'm sure that's kept you up at night a little bit. >> i don't know how i could have
handled it differently. i've tried for months and months just to have somebody just look at my bill, please look at it. >> boy, we can all relate to a frustrating customer service, we've all experienced that. we want to hear what happens with this all. hopefully you'll let us know the outcome, thanks so much. we appreciate your lawyer joining us. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> quite a twisted tale. hopefully we made sense. a lot of us can relate to the frustration when you want something dealt with. >> the most frustrating story we all deal with all the time. we hope he gets justice somehow. meanwhile, thoughts on that -- >> no. >> you're marinating on it. >> trying to figure it out. very complicated. >> billionaire bill gates had a different take on the ebola crisis and the u.s. response. we'll tell you what he's saying. so i can reach ally bank 24/7, but there are no branches? 24/7 it's just i'm a little reluctant to try new things. what's wrong with trying new things? feel that in your muscles? yeah... i do... try a new way to bank, where no branches equals great rates.
you know your dentures can unlike natural teeth. try new fixodent plus truefeel. this smooth formula helps keep dentures in place. it's free of flavors and colorants for a closer feeling to natural teeth. fixodent. and forget it. so ally bank really has no hidden fethat's right. accounts? it's just that i'm worried about you know "hidden things..." ok, why's that? no hidden fees, from the bank where no branches equals great rates.

invests in our public schools. welcome back to "new day" bill gates is speaking about the ebola virus in west africa. he explains what he thinks of the united states' involvement. >> i think it's amazing how the united states has responded to this, department of defense, logistical capability to go into tough places, get planes in and out, get material in and out, i think will be the thing that makes a big difference. >> carlos watson, ceo and co-founder. >> nice to be here. >> nice to hear from bill gates because politicians have been saying we're late to the game, didn't handle this right. he's impressed by the u.s. hamming of ebola. >> he is.
two things were interesting, one involvement of department of defense, saying their logistical capabilities setting up treatment centers and the like in west africa is important. the other thing that sadden immediate a bit, remember all of the energy we're putting towards ebola crisis means those kids and families struggling from malaria and other diseases, more will die from that, that's only exacerbated. the important of building overall health systems in liberia, west african countries. >> he's focused a lot on public access to health and education obviously but health, we also know his world of technology. did you see a marrying of those things in the help that could be provided to liberia and other west african nations? >> he did. he spoke about it both as related to ebola but other diseases as well. with regard to ebola, thinking about vaccines. that wouldn't be as much of a solution in the short term, but he was thinking about other therapeutics and he's funded a number of efforts. starting to talk about other
opportunities, malaria and other things, he had crazy ideas. this one every year event, grand challenges, he challenges people to come up with solutions to help 2 billion neediest. one of them was tricking mosquitoes so they no longer pass on diseases like dang five somewhere malaria. crazy ideas, some come up not just scientist but auto mechanics in argentinargentina. a wide open kickstarter challenge. >> pushing for a long time to make the united states recognize its interconnectiveness to the rest of the world. ebola, as horrible as it is, is an opportunity for people to understand that it matters it's happened somewhere else. >> very much so. he's hoping this will be a big public moment, and he sees an opportunity not only with government leaders here but an opportunity to work with other governments, whether in west africa, other countries now affected. >> he talked about some new space age, new technology but i'll let people check that out on your website ozy.com.
