tv   CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow  CNN  May 10, 2015 1:00pm-2:01pm PDT

1:00 pm
happening now in the newsroom -- >> right now, very pronounced funnel cloud and tornado in progress. >> a wild weather weekend. >> i haven't seen anything like this in a long time. >> damaging winds, floods even blizzards in the plains and ana hammering parts of the east coast. plus, two officers shot and
1:01 pm
killed in the line of duty. >> men go out every day to make sure we are safe were turned on tonight. >> a simple traffic stop turns into a deadly encounter and rips a community apart. >> 30 years ago was the last time this happened in hattiesburg. and an historic meeting. ♪ raul castro and pope francis had a private conversation at the vatican. >> obviously this comes at a time of dramatically improving relations. >> what did they discuss? newsroom starts now. good afternoon thanks for joining me i'm ana cabrera in for fredricka whitfield. happy mother's day. cuban president, raul castro is publicly thanking pope francis today in his role in improving u.s./cuban relation. they met privately at the vatican earlier today and this is their first face-to-face
1:02 pm
meeting it comes on the heels of a surprise diplomatic breakthrough between washington and havana, which was, in part facilitated by pope francis. joining me now is cnn religion commentator, father edward beck. father thanks for joining us again. happy mother's day to you and your loved ones. >> thank you to you, to. >> was this a big deal in your mind? >> it really was a big deal ana. you have to remember this is a country that for over 50 years, since 18959 with the revolution, was seen as an atheistic country. fidel castro espoused a marxist-lennonist philosophy that says that religion it is the opium of the people. and so the church was suppressed religious and priests were exiled. and now, you have the brother, new the new leader raul, coming to the pope not only ex-tolling the virtues of the pope but supposedly afterwards saying if this pope continues in this vein i will begin praying and may return to the catholic church.
1:03 pm
this is revolutionary. >> i know part of the vatican's foreign policy is two-men relation and we have learned the pope was integral in the u.s./cuba diplomatic negotiations. pope francis seems to be a mover and shaker. to what do you attribute his effectiveness? >> ana, i think people see him as someone walking the talk. they see him as a down-to-earth person who has real people's concerns at heart and he seems to be acting on it. he is not afraid to speak his mind. he is not afraid to inject himself into such political conversations as the cuba/united states relationship. and so i think what people are looking once again to the pope and the vatican for is this kind of moral leadership that perhaps some feel has been lacking for a while or has been a he is tan sign the vatican to enter into some of these frays. this pope does not seem to
1:04 pm
hesitate. nofrnl doubt about it. in fact that leads me right to my next question. why do you think he chooses to involve himself in some of these really political hot topics? >> i think because he sees them as issues of justice. he says that the situation in cuba must improve for the poor there. he sees people who have been oppressed for a very long time. and so if it's an issue of justice, albeit political, this pope sees himself right there because social justice is about what the church is supposed to be about. it's where the church is supposed to be. so this pope will enter the political forum if he believes that there are issues of justice, peace, equality gospel values that need to be addressed. >> do you feel that this pope has transformed catholicism or people's perception of catholicism? >> i would say we are in the midst of a transformation. certainly, nothing is complete. but we have come an awful long
1:05 pm
way in a very short period of time under the leadership of pope francis. i suspect that will continue. now, you remember, the pope is coming to the united states in september. he is going to first stop in cuba. raul said today, he is going to go to all of the masses that the pope will say in cuba. then he will come to the united states. he will speak before congress. he will speak in philadelphia at an open-air mass. he will visit new york city and so more and more you're going to see attention on this pope as he addresses human concerns. i don't think that those in congress are ready for what the pope is going to say to them when he comes to washington in september. >> we will be covering that indeed. father edward beck thank you so much for spending part of your day with us. >> happy mother's day to you, ana. >> i appreciate that. have a great weekend. >> bye bye. sadly, this holiday weekend is marked with tragedy in mississippi. two police officers one a rook kirk the other an officer of the year were gunned down, killed
1:06 pm
during a traffic stop in hattiesburg, mississippi, last night. three suspects are now in custody after a massive manhunt. they will face a judge tomorrow. cnn's rosa flores has been following this story all day is joining us now from new york. rosa what are you learning? >> reporter: ana, good afternoon. you know law enforcement experts always tell us there is no such thing as a routine traffic stop. the job of a police officer is always dangerous. well this is a perfect example. now, we have three suspects in custody and two police officers dead. a traffic stop ended in a hail of gunfire saturday night, leaving two hattiesburg, mississippi, police officers dead and three suspects in custody. police say curtis banks and his brother, marvin banks, fled the crime scene, allegedly stealing a police cruiser and using it as a getaway car. both were arrested hours later after a brief manhunt.
1:07 pm
mayor johnny due presays the third suspect, joanie callow way, was driving the car at the time of the traffic stop and was arrested shortly after the shooting. >> this is a horrific time for people around the nation when you have police officers that are sworn to serve and protect and this ruthless kind of action happens. >> reporter: calloway and marvin banks are charged with two counts of capital murder each. curtis banks faces two counts of accessory after the the fact of capital murder according to officials. >> if you commit a crime in hattiesburg, we take care of you, but we want to ensure all the people of hattiesburg and the surrounding areas that they are still safe in hattiesburg. >> reporter: authorities are tight-lipped about the time lane of the night and the suspected motive. only saying officer deen initiated the traffic stop called for backup and that officer tate responded to the call. as for the families of the two slain officers there is little
1:08 pm
comfort to be found. ronald tate the father of officer tate expressed his grief on facebook pasting several times throughout the night, saying "well, lord i had been praying that it was all just a mistake. my baby. i just need some kind of mercy right now." and later, "my heart has been ripped out of my chest and torn into a million pieces. i'm in a dizzy haze since 10:11 p.m. last night. i just want to be able to move again. right now, i can't." in a press conference due prepledged to seek justice for both families. now, i talked to officer tate's father by phone and he tells me that a great relationship with his son, that his son actually used to work in customer service at an auto parts store and that his soul would light up when police officers would walk in the door. and he told his father, dad, i want to be a police officer.
1:09 pm

1:12 pm
breaking news right now, we are getting word of a new tornado warning, actually, two of them iowa and south dakota affected. meteorologist tom seder just rushed in from the weather center. what is the latest tom? >> in between sioux city and rapids city the tornado we have warning earlier was in texas, now all the way up into south dakota here. you see the watches from the rio grand up into south dakota where we have got a tornado on the ground with a warning and blizzard conditions on the western end of the state. it's just mind boggling, isn't it? they have got over 6 1/2 inches of snow there. here is what we are watching in this area see where omaha is to the north, that's part of the
1:13 pm
southwest areas of minnesota in toward south dakota as well. this thunderstorm warning is actually facing northward, ahead of the cold air blanketing the area with snow we are seeing a rapid development from south to north across the area. so again, only about 7,000 affected in this area. thank goodness it is in between some of these larger community bus this is in effect until 3:15 central time. going to keep an eye on. this again ana, going to be one of many, now that we are in the heating, incredible contrast between the cold air and the blizzard conditions back behind as many as ten states seeing snow but at least the blizzard warnings are now just winter storm warnings crazy on mother's day, but again this is going to be something we are going to be watching closely the next several hours, moving to the north 25 miles an hour, moving slow. >> you see a screen that is that colorful you know it's not good. thank you for that update. 35 million people are in the path of those storms and others heavy rain large hail strong winds all possible today.
1:14 pm
texas is one of the hardest hit states. resident there is still cleaning up from the three confirmed twisters yesterday. one of them striking the up to of cisco. it is a small town west of fort worth, leaving one person dead. other parts of texas could see more twisters today. cnn's jennifer gray is joining us from cisco, texas. jen, fill us in, what is going on there and what are they preparing for? >> reporter: ana, they are preparing, unfortunately, for more storms after being hit what we were told an ef3 tornado about three quarters of a mail wide with a path of destruction seven miles long this area was hit very hard one of the hardest hit areas in texas. you can see the field behind merck the trees just snapped in half. we are up at a little bit higher elevation, down this road and around the bend a little bit. we hear that three homes are a total loss down there. we don't have access to those homes because the roads are cut off by trees and falling power lines. unfortunately, one person died in the storm yesterday.
1:15 pm
three others injured. one critical condition. and of course more storms today is a bad sign. we look out to our east and you can see, that's where most of the storms are forming. we do have -- we have gotten lucky so far. most of the storms have been to our south and to our east but you can see on the other side here cumulus clouds are building in the distance, a few storms possible as we go through the next couple of hours. one thing you do not want to hear when you have just been hit with an ef3 tornado, more storms but unfortunately, that's what we could be dealing with as we go through the afternoon hours. of course talking to the public information officer from this area and he said they have had tornadoes in the past but because it's so rural, they haven't had any structures hit until this one and so hit hard, like we mentioned. and as far as sirens go the town of cisco has sirens they didn't go off because where the tornado actually hit was a couple miles south. and so folks just have to rely on their weather radios they have to watch their local
1:16 pm
meteorologists and know what to do and have a plan in place in case severe weather strikes which, again, unfortunately is what they are doing today. ana? >> most of the people in that area have, like, storm cellars they go to during these tornado events? >> reporter: some do most of them don't though. most of the people with the storm shelters are a little bit north of here. so like i said some people do but a lot of them don't. and so you have to get into that small interior room away from windows. i'm from a town of about four five hours east of here and so it was the same for us you just get into that small, interior room you try to put as many walls between you and the outside as you can and stay there until the threat is over. >> all right, jennifer gray reporting from texas for us. thank you so much and do stay safe. now this is what it looked like this morning in denver at the rockies stadium. this is coors field. officially the city got 3 1/2 inches of snow overnight. some areas of colorado though, got as much as eight inches of snow on mother's day.
1:17 pm
the rockies official website said they had to break out the snowplows to get all that snow out of there and prepare the field. and this is what it looks like now, typical colorado. can change so quickly. they are scheduled to play a baseball game in just a few minutes. current temperature there, a chilly 44 degrees. up next are we safer today than right after 9/11? why one former u.s. official says no. today is more dangerous. all for just zero down, now nothing is holding you back. get it today. at t-mobile. i have type 2 diabetes. i started with pills. and now i take a long-acting insulin at night. i take mine in the morning. i was trying to eat right, stay active. but i wasn't reaching my a1c goal anymore. man: my doctor says diabetes changes over time. it gets harder to control blood sugar spikes after i eat and get to goal. my doctor added novolog® at mealtime for additional control. now i know. novolog® is a fast-acting, injectable insulin
1:18 pm
and it works together with my long-acting insulin. proven effective. the mealtime insulin doctors prescribe most. available in flexpen®. vo: novolog® is used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabetes. take novolog® as directed. eat a meal within 5 to 10 minutes after injection. check your blood sugar levels. do not take novolog® if your blood sugar is too low or you're allergic to any of its ingredients. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medicines you take. ask your doctor about alcohol use, operating machinery, or driving. the most common side effect is low blood sugar. symptoms may include dizziness, sweating, confusion, and headache. severe low blood sugar can be life-threatening. other common side effects include low potassium in your blood and injection site reactions. get medical help right away if you experience trouble with breathing serious allergic reactions like swelling of your face tongue, or throat, sweating, extreme drowsiness dizziness, or confusion. now i know about novolog®. taken by millions since 2001. vo: ask your health care provider about adding novolog®.
1:19 pm
it can help provide the additional control you may need.
1:20 pm
1:21 pm
there's renewed concern today over just how safe the u.s. is from home-grown terror. earlier on ""state of the union,"" we heard some startling comments about the terror threat in this country from the man who was the first homeland security secretary, tom ridge. >> when it comes to the nature of the threat we are in much more serious circumstances today than we were after 9/11. remember back then we thought about al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan and a few other places. we have seen al qaeda has metastasized. it is now a global scourge and you have the ascendancy of isil. the combination of those two groups their appeal to the lone wolves and we have seen them acting in belgium and in france and in canada and the united states so the threat vectors and the nature of threats are far more complicate and far more serious about today than on september 12 2001.
1:22 pm
>> daunting statement. let's talk more about it. joining me now from orlando, cnn military analyst, retired lieutenant general mark hertling. we saw after the provocative event in texas, home-grown terror is real. how do you fight it without stepping on basic freedoms? >> that's the toughest question we are going to face and i think mr. ridge's statement is absolutely correct. but i would like to just comment on that because remember on 9/11 i was a war planner in the pentagon on 9/11 and very few americans had ever heard of al qaeda. we adjusted to them very quickly over a period of ten years, we fought them in afghanistan and iraq found out about their centralized networks. what we have now a different kind of organization with a different kind of network. they are more decentralized. they are not looking for the great big attack but the multiple attacks. and as you just said that's what's going to have the
1:23 pm
conversation continuing about stepping on individual liberties because we have to gain intelligence to beat this -- this new organization. >> right. and the federal court just ruled that the way the nsa collects and stores certain data is illegal. so what is the government to do to combat this growing threat of what is social media-inspired terrorism in many ways here at home. >> well when you take a look at the devencentralized kind of activityies going on very little control over these individuals. i think the government is going to have to have some renewed looks at things like posse commitcome commititis the patriot act and look at how we do intercept social media, how we do intercept potential phone calls. i know not a lot of americans do want to hear those kinds of things because it does infringe on liberties, because a lot better than having people
1:24 pm
slaughtered in different attacks across the country. >> one other guest that spoke today on "state of the union" was senator ron johnson from wisconsin and his comment had to do with messaging and he said that isis has this messaging thing down. they are able to say and to show that they are winning in so many ways we need to flip the messaging to be able to show we are winning. what's that gonna require? >> it's a great comment ana, everybody claiming the government doesn't have a strategy against isis. we in fact do have a strategy and touch nothing the various realms of diplomas circumstance information operations economic and military. it seems everyone wants to defer back to the military piece of this because it's the easiest one to look at. but i would suggest we have got to do a whole lot more work on the information element of our national strategy because truthfully there's very few people in charge of that right now and we are hoping to turn the corner on this and what we
1:25 pm
have learned in the military is hope is not a method. you actually have a plan. you have to have someone come into work every day and actually executing that plan but it's very difficult in this realm because truthfully we're not very good at t. >> lieutenant general mark hertling you are always so insightful. thank you so much. >> thank you, ana. breaking news wither just getting word of a new tornado warning this time it's grayson county texas, right on the border with oklahoma. get to meteorologist tom sater. bring these updates. we lost a few souls in the u.s. this week and numerous injuries a lot of property damage this is not the one up to the north near sioux city and rapids city we are back out northeast of the dallas area this watch box, 8 1/2 million people are involved in this until 9 p.m. central time. this is the one that included denton a little earlier ago. we had an observation and it has been confirmed, tornado on the ground near gunter. it doesn't look like a very large tornado warning area but the concern here to me this is
1:26 pm
the same storm, with he had a warning on earlier was only moving at 25 miles per hour. now it is 55 miles per hour. that is a tremendous windmaker. and a lot of damage just from the winds alone. so again gunter until 3:45 itten to monitor this one. there's going to be many more ana, no doubt about it, but it has been observed law enforcement as well keep you posted. getting your workout in today. >> yes, we are. >> thank you so much tom. june next in the newsroom, a new poll out shows jeb bush lagging in the politically correct state of iowa. what's going on? our political panel weighs in next. hey, three putt. and starting each day with a delicious bowl of heart healthy kellogg's raisin bran. how's your cereal? sweet! tastes like winning. how would you know what winning tastes like? dave knows it's also a delicious source of fiber and one more step towards a healthy tomorrow. invest in your heart health, with kellogg's raisin bran no crying today... and try new kellogg's® raisin bran with cranberries. the tart and sweet way to up your breakfast game.

1:30 pm
hello again, thanks for staying with me. i'm ana cabrera in for fred this week. former florida governor, jeb bush, a likely presidential candidate, is known for distancing himself from the policies of his older brother, at least that was the case weeks
1:31 pm
and months ago, but now he is making headlines after reviewing in a private meeting that former president george w. bush is one of his main middle east advisers. to discuss more tharon johnson is joining us former southeastern regional director for obama 2012 and strategist out of goodman, joining us from tampa. adam i will start with you. politically, a bad move or a good move for jeb bush to admit his brother advises him? >> well first of all, the bush family has had an incredible record of public service for years to the country. and i think one thing about jeb bush that the country is going to get to know very soon is he seeks advice and input and thoughts and ideas from across the spectrum and i think the more the better, in terms of trying to figure out where we go next and i think this is what this election will be all about. >> do you agree? >> i disagree. i think what jeb is really analyzing right now is how unpopular is his brother still with american people? i mean he can definitely get advice from him as far as
1:32 pm
foreign policy but there is still many americans right now who blame president bush for the state of the economy right now. and there are a lot of americans that overwhelmingly disagree with his approach to iraq. now, what jeb has talked about is he sort of disagreed with the military strategy but he never really was clear about whether or not he disagreed with his brothers as far as intentions to iraq at that time. >> you are mentioning iraq i want to make sure we clarify, according to bush's spokesman that these comments reportedly were not about iraq to israel. responses, "governor bush deeply respects his brother's service to this country and in response to james bigger and israel he reiterated that he looks to his brother whose stalwart support for our ally is in line with his commitment to standing with his role in the a face of greater threats to their security and our own.
1:33 pm
"what do you think? >> that is showing he has got to start talking about foreign policy and also did talk about iraq as far as the president. but let's get back to one of the things that i think he is using as sort of a hypothetical situation. he was not the president at the time. we have got to give president bush the benefit of the doubt that he had information that no other people had. but at the end of the day, i think he has got to be very careful about how it's gas golden gate to play with the mainstream electorate saying your brother is one of your top advisers on foreign policy. >> adam broaden the conversation to the gop race right now as it is shaping up. a quinnipiac university poll asked republican voters if the gop iowa caucus were held today, for whom would you vote? i want to show the results of this poll. you will see scott walker is in the lead. jeb bush though, only taking 25%, lagging in this poll. so adam do you think scott walker is going to continue to have the momentum he seems to have early going? >> oh gosh you know these are
1:34 pm
all horse race polls a lot of fun to look at and talk about. they really don't mean anything. right now, we are in the season of first impressions, as voters starting to get their first tastes of these candidates in many cases. we are still over nine months nearly nine months away from the iowa caucuses. what will mean something, ana, we get down to it move from orchestrated to choreography of opening announcements to the realtime competition on debate stages on television across america. that's when it starts to really count and in the case of jeb bush i guess we led off with i think he is going to do very very well there. and by the way, i do want to comment on the last question. there wouldn't be a greater supporter of the state of israel and standing tall with our friends than jeb bush and any of the other major republicans. >> all right. we have to leave it there because we have some breaking news to get to. tharon johnson and adam goodman, thanks to both of you. our breaking news right now, new reports of a confirmed tornado north of dallas near the dallas fort worth airport. get to cnn's jennifer gray who
1:35 pm
is in north texas right now. jen, fill us in. >> reporter: yeah ana, located over gunter 12 miles southwest of sherman. it is moving to the northeast about 40 miles an hour. this is all part of that same system that impacted denton just a few moments ago and so there has been confirmation once again of a tornado in progress. so if you are in that area you need to get to your safe spot seek shelter, take cover immediately. a very dangerous storm this is all north of the dallas metroplex. these storms are all moving to thee east the individual cells are moving northeast direction at about 40 miles per hour. so take cover if you are in that area ana, these storms also have the potential to create very large hail damaging winds and like we are seeing now, these isolated tornadoes. all part of this main system we have been talking about over this multiday severe weather threat. today is yet another day of the possibility of severe weather. we have been talking about it for days now and just as we have been talking about it it is unfolding this afternoon.
1:36 pm
so do plan on more tornado warnings across the plains as go into the afternoon and evening hours but right now this one tornado warning just to the south of sherman with a tornado in progress ana? >> cnn's jennifer gray in texas. thanks for the update. pop icon prince is in baltimore tonight. the singer rarely gets political, but now weighing in on freddie gray's death through his music. we will bring it to you next. he doesn't need your help. until he does. three cylinders, dual overhead cams and 50 horsepower. go bold. go powerful. go gator. get 3,500 dollars off select gators at a dealer near you. ♪ ♪ ♪

1:43 pm
there, prince some of his songs, sign of the times in 1987 did he speak out about aids violence in our communities, drugs, he has done things on nuclear disarmament, a song called "ronnie talk to russia." he does come out and say something. i'm not surprised now, given that just at the grammys he mentioned black lives matter on the stage at the grammys, which was quite controversial. so this is obviously an issue that means a lot to him. >> and why baltimore? does he have a special connection to baltimore? >> you know i don't think he has a special connection to baltimore, but i think he probably realized that you know what enough is enough. this is a time to actually stand up and say something and put -- he is an icon right? and to is a-to-say listen i have a voice, i have a platform and now is the time to use it and thankfully i hope tonight, you know people everywhere, whether you're watching on title or listen there on the concert, listening and we do fight for
1:44 pm
justice. >> do you think prince has any -- i even hate to suggest it but tough wonder does he have a financial interest in making this statement, that maybe this song and him doing this will give him kind of a rebirth in his career? >> well i think prince's so iconic that he -- i don't think he is really doing it for money though i will say that it was surprising to me that the tickets actually cost something. i mean some of these tickets are going from $22 to nearly $500 a ticket. and yes, of course would you think, hey, listen if you're doing this for the cause, then this should be free. but i think the statement itself is large enough and hopefully, with the press that he has gotten around it which has been quite a lot, we can keep the conversation going and not let it die. and i think that's the most important thing here. >> and the tickets cost money but people can listen in for free at home right? >> yes. so he has teemed one jay-z, jay-z's tidal music streaming
1:45 pm
service, listen between 8 and 9 tonight on, you can heart entire concert, it should be pretty fun. again it is not just prince there are a number of celebrity guests musical acts that will show up who he has not confirmed so it should be an amazing, exciting thrilling and hopeful hour. >> i like it. we will end it on that positive note. sean pierre regis, thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you, ana. candid words from michelle obama on the emotional toll of being the first african-american first lady. >> then there was the first time i was on a magazine cover. it was a cartoon drawing of me with a huge afro and a machine gun. now, yeah it was salt tire but if i'm really being honest that knocked me back a bit. >> more from her commencement address to the graduating class at tuskegee university when we come back. ♪

first lady michelle obama is getting some attention after a bold statement. she told a group of graduates she has been held to a different standard because of her race. during the commencement speech
1:57 pm
at tuskegee university she talked about the trials she has faced as a first african-american first lady. >> but i also imagine that you might think about all of that history, all those heroes who came before you and you might also feel a little pressure you know? pressure to live up to the legacy of those who came before you. pressure to meet the expectations of others. and believe me i understand that kind of pressure. [ laughter ] i have experienced a little bit of it myself. [ applause ] you see, graduates, i didn't start out as the fully formed first lady who stands before you today. no no i had my share of bumps along the way. back when my husband first started campaigning for president, folks had all sorts of questions of me. what kind of first lady would i be? what kinds of issues would i

[ applause ] or was i too soft too much of a mom, not enough of a career woman? then there was the first time i was on a magazine cover. it was a cartoon drawing of me with a huge afro and a machine gun. now, yeah it was satire but if i'm really being honest that

[ laughter ] and over the years, folks have used plenty of interesting words to describe me. one said i exhibited a little bit of uppityism. another noted that i was one of my husband's cronies of color. cable news charmingly referred to me as obama's baby mama. and of course barack has endured his fair share of insults and slights. even today, there are still folks questioning his citizenship. >> the first lady still has a couple more commencement speeches at overland college in ohio and at a high school in chicago.
