tv CNN Newsroom Live CNN December 8, 2015 11:30pm-1:01am PST
hello to our viewers joining us from the united states, and welcome back to our viewers from around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> and i'm errol barnett. despite the swift political backlash, donald trump is not retreating from his controversial proposal to ban all muslims from entering the united states. world leaders are denouncing the republican front-runner's statements. >> investigators say the attackers in the california massacre appear to have been radicalized at least two years ago. a source also says a man
believed to be one of the murderers practiced firing assault rifles at a local gun range in the days before the attack. iraqi forces say they now control 60% of ramadi, after a 24-hour offensive against isis. they say they attacked isis from three sides aided by u.s.-led air strikes. isis has controlled ramadi since may. no matter how heated the rhetoric is, in response to trump's muslim ban proposal, the candidate himself is unmoved. >> and for good reason. dana bash reports his voter support remains strong. >> thank you very much, everybody. this is great. >> reporter: donald trump is not only on top in a new cnn new hampshire poll, his 32% support in the first primary state is more than marco rubio, chris christie and jeb bush combined.
with 6 in 10 new hampshire republicans saying trump is most likely to win their primary. >> a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: a new show of strength as that new trump plan ignites unprecedented by bipartisan fury -- >> normally i do not comment on what's going on in the presidential election. i will take an exception today. this is not conservativism. >> reporter: to former vice president dick cheney, revered by conservatives for pushing tough tactics to keep americans safe after 9/11. >> this cold notion that somehow we can just say no more muslims, just ban the whole religion, goes against everything we stand for and believe in. >> reporter: voters in the new hampshire poll said trump is the best man to take on isis. on cnn's new day, he was eager to defend his new plan. >> this is not about being
politically correct. you'll have many more world trade center if you don't stop it. i'm talking about a temporary situation until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on here. >> reporter: even republican party chair reince priebus who tries to stay out of the fight, weighs in. i don't agree. we need to aggressively take on radical terrorism, but not at the expense of our american values. that, months after priebus convinced all of trump's competitors to pledge to support him if he's the nominee, making it awkward as they slam him now. >> it's not about the blow hards out there just saying stuff, that's not a program. that's not a plan. this is serious business. >> donald trump always plays on everybody's worst instincts and fears. >> you know how you make america great again? tell donald trump to go to hell. >> the trump campaign for months
now has a history like quality to it, to the sloganeering, the outright lie, and fake hair. what donald trump said yesterday disqualifies him from serving as president. and for republican candidates for president to stand by their pledge to support mr. trump? that in and of itself is disqualifying. >> president obama's spokesman may have been making a policy statement there, but he was also clearly stirring the pot, for many who are worried the damage trump may do to the party. trump is making noises again about a gop nightmare scenario, an independent trump candidacy. he tweeted if he launched a bid, his supporters would back him and not the nominee. >> the top republican in the u.s. senate said trump's
proposal would never work and have serious political ramifications. >> to show how completely and totally unworkable it would be, king abdullah of jordan would presumably not be able to come to the united states. how about president ghani of afghanistan, an ally of ours who would not be able to come to the united states. this suggestion is completely and totally consistent with american values. >> it's worth noting, trump has not shied away from doing business in the majority of muslim countries. >> for example, the trump international golf club about to be completed in the united arab emirates is there with more. >> reporter: it is not surprising that donald trump has focused his business development here in uae, golf in the broader middle east. his highest profile project is with a well-known developer of dubai. it's called acoy yeah oxygen,
with hotels, a trump golf course and mosque as well on the property. a spokesman tried to deflect controversy, indicating it is staying with the trump group. we would like to stress that our agreement is with the trump organization, he said, as one of the premier golf course operators in the world, and as such, we would not comment further on mr. trump's personal or political agenda, nor comment on the american political debate scene. one strategist said they want to try and stay neutral. just in case trump makes it into the white house in 2016. another trump development announced for the palm in the property downturn in 2010 and never broke ground. just last may, his daughter, while in dubai, talked of potential expansion in more conservative muslim countries, saudi arabia and qatar. but the most high-profile about-face in the region on donald trump came even before the latest controversy.
the uae developer supported the u.s. presidential candidate just in august saying he was a breath of fresh air. but that abruptly changed in late november. i believed, and still do, that america's lacking strong leadership, he said, but strength with partner with ignorance and deceit, it produces a toxic mix threatening the united states and our world. we might hear more of that sort of tone after donald trump's latest comments. cnn, abu dhabi. >> it turns out donald trump is losing some business in the uae. a big retailer based in dubai called lifestyle is suspending the sale of trump branded products in its stores. the ceo says in light of the recent statements made by the presidential candidate in the u.s. media, we have suspended sale of all products from the trump home deco range. lifestyle has 195 stores across
the middle east, north africa, pakistan and tanzania. >> the u.s. house of representatives voted to overhaul the federal visa waiver program. it bars people from iraq, syria, iran and sudan and recent visitors to those countries from entering the u.s. without a visa. >> the waiver program currently allows some travelers to stay in the u.s. for 90 days without obtaining a visa. house majority leader kevin mccarthy said it was time for a change. >> but the biggest fear that i have, and so many in this conference on both sides of the aisle, is you have more than 5,000 individuals who have western passports in this program that have gone to iraq or syria in the last five years. those are gaps that we need to fix. >> president barack obama called on congress to revise the visa waiver program during his oval
office address about fighting isis. investigators are piecing together a better picture of the couple who massacred 14 people last week in california. >> the attackers kept to themselves in the united states, but in pakistan, where one of the killers studied, classmates remember an engaging student. cnn's simon met some of those who knew tashfeen malik. >> a women's institute that teaches its own conservative and ultra orthodox version of islam. the shooting suspect tashfeen malik studied here. a spokeswoman gave me a telephone interview. >>. >> reporter: but she didn't complete her course. in april last year, she said she
announced she had to leave, as she would be getting married in two months' time. teachers here i've spoken to weren't willing to get on camera but have given cnn a statement, describing tashfeen malik as an obedient and positive minded student. they said that no one here could ever have imagined that she could be behind what they described as a horrible act. 100% against the teachings of the institute. she never raised any suspicions -- >> no, no, not at all. >> reporter: you didn't see any idea that she was perhaps developing an -- >> no, no. no one would even think that she could do such a heinous thing. >> reporter: but critics and former students of the institute say her ultra conservative
values create an isolationist viewpoint. could this be a stepping stone to radicalization? there's one good interpretation of islam, in that sense, the world knew that these women are learning. that can be judgmental. but nowhere in the curriculum is anything that condones the militancy. >> reporter: they said they can't be held responsible for a student's acts as an individual. >> this is not allowed in islam. it's against islamic teachings. >> reporter: the teachings don't seem to be enough to complete the picture of tashfeen malik's radicalization. this is just one piece of a very
complicated jigsaw puzzle, that here in pakistan, in saudi arabia, and in the united states. cnn, pakistan. the united nations refugee agency is urging jordan to take in 12,000 syrians stranded at its border. they say these people are camping in deteriorating and unsanitary conditions. there are disease outbreaks, and among children signs of mal nutrition. >> the agency is offering to help reinforce security at points in jordan. many are fleeing air strikes and violence from isis militants in syria. well, it is the economic heart of the u.s. state of maine. coming up, a close look at the lobster industry, and what it means to get the maine lobster experience. today people are coming out to the nation's capital to support an important cause that can change the way you live for years to come. how can you help?

past few minutes. let's bring in our jim bittermann who joins us live from the paris bureau. jim, what more do we know about the third paris attacker? >> reporter: well, his name is mohammed aggad. he was identified formally by the prime minister a few minutes ago in a televised interview. there's a lot of reporting going on about this in the media this morning. apparently 23 years old from strasbourg on the east side of france. and his -- he had a known association with moread forez who is known as a recruiter here in paris. he was fairly well-known to the strasbourg police as a juvenile delinquent. he left the area in 2013 and believed he went to syria, and was there, and that was probably part of his radicalization process. apparently authorities have known about his identity for
about two weeks now, according to reports. and they have not been disclosing it, because it's part of their investigation, they thought it would be better not to disclose it. last night we are told, according to some reports, that authorities searched the apartment of aggad, his mother's apartment in the town near strasbourg. that's about all we know at the moment. of course, this plays right into what is one of the greatest french fears about the radicalized generation here, these young people that grew up in france, with french identification, with a knowledge of france and a french passport, to become radicalized and come back to carry out attacks in france. >> i know this is just emerging now, but why would officials have this information for the past few weeks, and announce it today? might it have anything to do with the fact that the third attacker, or one of the attackers at least is still at
large? >> reporter: well, yes, that could have something to do with it. it could be the fact that they didn't want to tip off his mother and other people involved in the investigation, that the police wanted to get to first, if it's true they in fact searched the apartment just last night of the mother. then perhaps it had something to do with that as well. there are a number of things we don't know, and maybe it will become clearer as the day wears on. in any case, the identity probably wasn't that important that we know exactly who this young man is. it was important to the authorities, not necessarily important to the news media. so i think that's probably why they withheld the information. >> jim bittermann live from paris this morning, just past 8:50 with that news. the third attacker identified. thank you, jim. the northwestern u.s. is soaked with record rains and some snow. we turn to meteorologist to talk
about the rains, and some of the skiers will be happy about the snow. >> absolutely. it's about time. we're getting significant snow coming in on the order of several feet. here's the perspective across the eastern pacific ocean. across the northwestern u.s., go back about 5,000 miles. back towards western pacific on to the areas of the philippines. that's where the moisture source is coming in. you can easily pick out the moisture as it stretches back out towards the west. the moisture is certainly there. the next couple days we get additional rainfall. some areas could see well over a foot of rainfall inside the next seven days. again, after we get through this, we talk about significant accumulation of snow as well. some of the pockets very impressive. 10 to 12 inches around northern california, western oregon, could be seeing a potential for 4 to 6 inches of rainfall in the next seven days. already impressive flooding
taking place there as well. look at the snowfall accumulations, as far as where we were this time last year, into early december, about 18% of normal across the sier yeahs. fast forward to the first week of 2015, doubling that number, 26% of snow coverage across the sierras. fantastic news that 70% of the drinking water comes from the sierras. rainfall in the seven-day forecast across portland as you would expect. you talk about significant accumulations, how about this. mt. ranier in se amount, the snowfall forecast is 142 to 182 inches inside the next four nights. we know no one lives across that area, those elevations, but i want to show you what we're talking about when it comes to that much snowfall. to get 4 1/2 meters, that's taller than a double-decker bus, coming across portions of washington state. that's how much moisture that is associated with the storms that are streaming in across this
region of washington state. and we'll leave you with the rainfall, incredible flooding taking place across parts of norway. scandinavia, over 100 mudslides reported over this region. hundreds of homes damaged with rainfall, about 7 inches or 170 millimeters in the last couple of days in that part of world as well. >> horrific flooding there. but a glimpse of pedram the giant. bigger than a bus. we'll see you next hour. >> thanks, guys. the fishing industry in the u.s. state of maine has a catch above all the others, lobster. >> the shellfish accounts for three-quarters of the state's revenue from fishing, and considered by many to be the state's economic hub. why the industry is booming. >> reporter: even at the end of a long day at sea, these lobstermen take their time. each fresh specimen must be
carefully unloaded. the state of maine, there's a lot riding on these spindly frames. >> people from maine want to eat a lobster, they buy a postcard, but more than that. we've got 5,000-plus lobster licenses in the state of maine. that's 5,000 small businesses scattered from one end of the coast to the other. >> reporter: those 5,000 bg businesses have had a very good year. they brought in a record $450 million. almost 25% more than the previous year. rising demand coupled with an unusually cold winter which delayed the start of the lobster season pushed up the price per pound. even so, they're not tempted to overfish. >> on a typical day, i throw 10 to 20 times back overboard as i keep. that's a very good thing. because every time we're doing that, we know there's something the next time. we built a buffer into our fishery to accommodate changes in the environment.
>> reporter: from the lobster men to the restaurants that sell their catches, this is an economic success story. this restaurant is an institution here in portland, maine. at peak season, they sell more than 200 of these every day. at $55 each for the largest, daily revenues can run into the thousands. it's a simple business model for a rather complicated eating experience. >> what you've got here is a bowl for your shells. >> reporter: luckily i'm getting a crash course. i've got my bib. i'm ready to go. >> from the body, with the tail, i like to give it a little twist. it will come right apart like so. >> what's the trick to this? you want to be patient? you don't want to break it? >> you know, some people like to just take a fork and a knife and open it right up, eat it piece by piece. i prefer to see the entire tail. >> reporter: the trick, of course, is to get your hands dirty. i'm already covered.
>> part of the maine lobster experience is opening one up yourself. >> reporter: right. victory! >> perfect. >> reporter: victory indeed for the first time diner, and a real maine experience to remember. for those working the lobster boats off of portland, hoping for another banner year, thoughts have already turned to the next catch. cnn, in portland, maine. >> love a good lobster. >> oh, yeah. >> with a little butter. "star wars" the force awakens opens in nine days. you know what fans are doing. they're already camping out at theaters. take a look. that's a fun party. dozens of people lined up at the tcl chinese theater in l.a. on tuesday. they're trying to secure a spot, of course, for an advanced screening on december 17th.

radicalized. iraqi troops announce a major victory in their battle major victory in their battle against isis. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com but first we have breaking news. the french prime minister has now identified another suspect in the paris terror attacks. the 23-year-old is the third gunman who stormed the bataclan concert venue last month. >> let's go to jim bittermann who joins us at the paris bureau. jim, this has just broken in the past 60 minutes. what do we know? >> reporter: not a whole lot, errol. but there are some things coming through. apparently this broke after some reports in the local media here, and the prime minister confirmed the identity of fouad mohamed-aggad, where the blood iest of the assaults took place, killing 130 people. this attacker was not identified, but apparently authorities knew his identity
for about two weeks. and they've been withholding it. pending other sorts of investigations. they said that it was part of the investigation they didn't want to release the name. that could be related to the fact that according to reports here, the mother of mohamed-aggad, her apartment was searched last night in the suburb of strasbourg. that's where he's from. he grew up there. he was known to police as a petty criminal, purportedly left in 2013 to syria, where he was apparently radicalized and chose to come back and be part of the team that hit the bataclan theater. one other fact that's emerged here in some of the reporting is that according to the reports, his older brother, 25-year-old, is in prison right now being held by police because he also traveled to syria, and got himself on the radar of authorities, so they arrested
him when he came back. >> the development that this suspect lives there in france, and had traveled to syria in 2013, will sound familiar to viewers who have watched the investigation into the other attackers, as it seems to be a trend, or an aspect of culture that investigators are still trying to get their hands around. >> reporter: unfortunately, that's the case, errol. this is the worst nightmare, french authorities have had for the last two or three years now, this concern that young french people, would be going off to syria, become radicalized, come back with their french passports, pass under the radar because they're french citizens, and then be able to -- be in a position to perpetrate the kind of attacks we saw on november 13th. so yes, i think it is familiar, unfortunately so. errol? >> jim bittermann live in paris now with the breaking information, the identity of the third attacker now, fouad
mohamed-aggad. jim, thank you very much. donald trump has no apologies for his controversial proposal to ban all muslims from entering the united states. >> despite 24 hours of condemnation from fellow politicians, and world leaders, trump is not backing down. he spoke with barbara walters of abc news. >> do you regret your ban on muslims, which some people think is unamerican? >> not at all. we have to do the right thing. somebody in this country has to say, what's right. i have great respect and love, i have people that i have tremendous relationships with, they're muslim. and barbara, they agree with me 100%. >> trump has been called a fascist, demagogue, unhinged, and reprehensible. >> but there's a report that that's not changing his
position. >> reporter: defiance today from donald trump. >> we need intelligence in this country. we need a certain toughness in this country, or we're going to end up like a lot of other places and we're not going to have a country left. >> reporter: in the face of unrelenting political backlash, trump defended his proposal on cnn's news day, blocking muslims from coming to the united states. >> you'll have many more world trade centers if you don't solve it. many, many more, and probably beyond. >> reporter: and overheated campaign season suddenly even hotter. with republicans rushing to join democrats in condemning democrats. >> this is not conservativism. what was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for, and more importantly, it's not what this country stands for. >> reporter: trump said his ban on muslims would be temporary. he called it a modern-day version of fdr's actions toward the japanese in world war ii. he announced his proposal last night on a battleship from that
war. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> reporter: his comments drew instant fire from gop rivals. >> he's a race baiting, religious bigot. he doesn't represent my party. he doesn't represent the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for. >> what we shouldn't do is to just, you know, say, all muslims en't coming into our country. it's not about the blow hards saying that. that's not a program. that's not a plan. this is serious business. >> reporter: former vice president dick cheney also weighed in, calling it a violation of religious freedom. >> this total notion that somehow we can say no more muslims, just ban all religion, goes against everything we stand for and believe in. >> reporter: the white house called trump's comments not only
misguided, but dangerous. >> what donald trump said yesterday, disqualifies him from servings as president. >> reporter: trump brushed aside the criticisms, saying his supporters are tired of political correctness. >> and got standing ovations as soon as this was mentioned. >> there were standing ovations on monday night in south carolina. i was in the crowd and talked to many voters. some said they didn't know the full extent of trump's full proposal, but others said something must be done and supported his plan. they're frightened, angry and believe the current administration isn't doing enough. now, the condemnations are still coming in, but there's little reason to believe this will hurt trump in the republican primary. so far, nothing he said has. cnn, washington. >> we're joined from istanbul with the international reaction to trump's plan. sarah, the international community has had more time now to digest the ramifications of what donald trump is proposing
here. what's been the reaction across the region, and indeed, the world to his comments regarding banning muslims traveling to the united states? >> yeah, we've heard some from leaders of countries like david cameron, the prime minister, basically saying this is absolutely just wrong. his idea of not letting muslims in the country as a group. but we're not hearing much official reaction from the heads of other countries. and that is partly because donald trump is not an official with the united states. he is simply a presidential candidate. but as far as people go, as far as people on the streets, business owners and tourists alike, they're very disturbed about what they're hearing from this man. that he is targeting a group of people just because of their religion. >> they are saying that muslims are racist, no? they refuse religions?
>> if you ban all muslims, that means muslim people are all bad. and they're not, of course. of course not. >> you're hearing words like racist, fascist, a joke. some people also look at what he's saying and saying, i think he's just doing this for show business, that he is more popular with those on the far right in american society. but there is concern that this could have fallout, that this kind of language, and these kind of ideas could create problems for muslims already in the country, or visiting the country, especially women wearing the head cover, that they could become targets of either violence, or discrimination. so there is concern overall, that this is really terrible language to be using in a country that is supposed to be a
country made up of immigrants. >> interesting points there. and also, sarah, many commentators suggest trump's rhetoric feeds into isis propaganda. how much concern is there in the region that his words will be used by isis as a recruiting tool? >> you hit the nail on the head. that is exactly what a lot of folks are saying. that this could be used by isis, this is exactly what isis wants. it plays right into their hands. you're hearing that collectively from people, that this is really what isis would like to see. and us against them mentality, saying, see, i told you so. they don't want us, they don't believe in us. and therefore, they are targets. so yes, that is a great concern. the people and the governments in this region. rosemary? >> sarah, live from istanbul in turkey, many thanks to you. meanwhile, in the uk, there's an online petition calling the government to ban trump from entering the country for hate speech.
it's already received more than 39,000 signatures which is more than triple the number needed for the government to respond. if the petition reaches 100,000 signatures, the petition could be debated in the house of commons. now to the investigation into the massacre last week in california. officials say one of the murderers may have plotted an earlier attack back in 2012. >> it's not clear how syed farook got into that target. >> investigators say farook and an accomplice lost their nerve and abandoned their plan after a round of terror related arrests. a source also says in the days leading up to last week's attack, a man believed to be farook practiced firing an assault rifle at a local gun range. authorities say the other attacker in last week's massacre was apparently radicalized long ago. >> tashfeen malik went to university in pakistan.
simon met some of the people who knew her as a student. >> reporter: a women's understa institution teaching islam. tashfeen malik studied here. >> she was studying the koran, the understanding of the text. >> reporter: but she didn't complete her course. in april last year, she announced she had to leave, as she would be getting married in two months' time. teachers here i've spoken to weren't willing to appear on camera, but have given cnn a statement, describing tashfeen malik as a helpful and obedient and positive minded student. they said that no one here could ever have imagined that she could be behind what they described as a horrible act.
that's 100% against islamic teachings, and the teachings of the institute. she never raised any suspicions that she might -- >> no, no, not at all. not at all. >> you didn't see any idea that she was perhaps developing -- >> no, no. no one can even think about how she could do such a heinous thing. >> reporter: but critics and former students of the institute say their ultra-conservative values promote an arrogant and isolationist viewpoint. could this be a stepping stone to radicalization? >> in these classes, there's one interpretation of islam, in that sense the women are learning, that could be judgmental. but nowhere in the curriculum is there any sort of space for
anything which condones let alone advocates militancy. >> reporter: they've condemned the attack and says it can't be held responsible for a student's acts as an individual. >> this is not allowed. it's against our teachings. it's heartbreaking. >> reporter: the teachings here don't seem to be enough to complete the picture of tashfeen malik's radicalization. this is only one piece of a very complicated jigsaw puzzle, that has pieces here in pakistan, saudi arabia and the united states. cnn, pakistan. still to come this hour on "cnn newsroom," iraqi forces are claiming a significant advance in a key city after a major attack on isis. we'll look at the recent success and the difficulties that still lie ahead. plus, officials in chicago are trying to keep the public

the iraqi military says its forces control now more than half of hamady after a 4-hour offensive against isis. >> they were able to advance after troops, anti-terrorism forces and police attacked the militants on three sides and helped by u.s.-led air strikes. >> isis has controlled ramadi since may since it pushed iraqi forces out of the city. earlier, i spoke to cnn military analyst, lieutenant general mark hurtling by this push by iraqi forces. i asked him how difficult it will be for the military to maintain control of the city. >> the intel estimate said there's between 600 and 1,000 isis fighters remaining in the city. that's versus about 10,000 iraqi security forces. so the average person would say that's pretty good odds. but isis has been in this town for several months, reinforced it with improvised explosive
devices, not only along the roads. when i was in iraq, a lot of houses and buildings were booby-trapped with these weapons systems. which means every single force has to go in and clear houses, one by one. remember, ramadi is -- when it was populated, is about 400,000 strong. that's about the same size as the u.s. cities of tucson, or portland, or nashville. so these are pretty big cities. when you're talking about clearinghouse by house, it's going to take a long time. at the same time, isis has given the remaining iraqi citizens in the town warning that they should not leave the city. they want to use them as shields. so you can't sometimes differentiate between the isis fighters and the civilians who are being required to stay behind by the fighters, for fear of being killed by isis themselves. this is going to continue to be a tough fight. this is not going to go down very quickly.
>> the united nations refugee agency is urging jordan to take in 12,000 syrians stranded at its border. they say these people are camping in deteriorating and unsanitary conditions. there are disease outbreaks, and among children signs of malnutrition. >> you see some of the aerial images of the refugees. the agency is offering to help reinforce security at registration points in jordan. many of these people are fleeing escalating air strikes and violence from isis militants in syria. back to the united states now. in chicago, officials have released another video showing disturbing behavior by police. >> this one captures officers tasing a man in his cell, then dragging his body into the hallway. all of this comes as chicago officials are trying to keep yet another police shooting video private. >> the case involves the death of a teenager nearly three years
ago. cnn's rosa flores has details of the investigation, and we do warn you, some images in her report are disturbing. >> reporter: first, there was the shocking video of la quaun mcdonald. and then ronald johnson. both shot and killed by chicago police. cases that have caused outrage. but there's a third police shooting and video that few have seen. we've talked to two men who have seen it, and they say it shows in detail the killing of black teen cedric chapman by a chicago police officer in 2013. >> he is running as fast as he possibly can away from the police when he is shot. >> reporter: brian kaufman represents chapman's family and has been fighting for the release of the video. >> approximately three to four seconds elapses and the first bullet is fired. and he is dead within eight seconds of getting out of his car and running. >> we saw the commotion.
>> reporter: lorenzo davis analyzed the video second by second and says this case cost him his job. >> we felt like it was an unjustified shooting. >> reporter: davis said the review for the city agency that investigates all officer involved shootings called the review authority, a former police officer himself, he describes what's on the video. >> they pulled up alongside of that car. >> reporter: chapman was running away from the stolen car he was driving when a police officer opened fire. >> chapman was running along here. and when he got to roughly this location, i would say, there was a gunshot. >> reporter: chapman was carrying a black iphone box in his hand. the shooting officer would later say he thought it was a gun. >> he did not shout a warning. he did not use his radio to give direction of flight. he simply pointed his gun until he had a clear shot.
>> reporter: lorenzo davis said his boss said ipra asked him to change the finding to justified. when had erefused, he said he was fired. ipra assigns another investigator and called part of davis' report glaringly biased, saying there was a significant discrepancy between davis' findings and what the case actually shows. the officer who shot chapman was exonerated. >> they don't want to say that the shooting was wrong. >> why is that? >> because then it makes it look like some police officers are killers. and they don't want you to look that way. >> reporter: in fact, not only was the officer cleared, two of chapman's accomplices were actually charged with first-degree murder. even though they were at least ten blocks away when he was shot. prosecutors said the two were involved in the carjacking which
led to chapman's death. they pled guilty to lesser crimes. chicago police officers have shot 409 people since 2007. a third of them fatally, according to a cnn analysis of ipra's data. that's one person shot about every week for the past eight years. an analysis of the 260 closed cases shows in only six cases, or 2%, officers were found to be not justified in the use of deadly force. we keep on hearing from activists in the community, from members of the community, there's a cover-up culture to protect the police officers, to protect politicians. what's your reaction to that? do you think that culture of cover-up exists? >> yes, i do. it protects the reputation of the police department, it protects the reputation of the police officers. >> that was rosa flores reporting. and you could see a peaceful
protest in chicago again in the coming day, because in the coming hours, a federal judge in the city will decide if that video will be made public. we'll take a very short break here. but still to come, the world's muslims are reacting to donald trump's proposal to ban them from the united states. we go to london with a reaction from a counterextremism think tank. muslims aren't the only group trump has offended. how attacking a fellow candidate's looks and calling mexicans rapists impast him at the polls. i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems.

welcome back to our viewers here in the u.s. and those of you watching from around the world. this is "cnn newsroom." i'm errol barnett. >> and i'm rosemary church. the french prime minister has confirmed the identity of the third gunman responsible for murdering 89 people at the bataclan concert hall in paris. french media report 23-year-old fouad mohamed-aggad traveled to syria in 2013 and was known to french services. a defiant donald trump warned there will be more terror attacks in the u.s. if his ban on muslim immigration isn't put into place. there's widespread condemnation of the proposal. trump emphasizes the ban could be temporary. investigators say one of the killers in the california massacre may have been plotting an earlier attack with a
different accomplice. an official said syed farook conspired to attack a specific target in 2012, but abandoned the plan after police made other terror related arrests in the area. now, to more on the international outrage over donald trump, the republican front-runner in the u.s. presidential race. keep that in mind. calling for a ban on muslims entering the country. we want to bring in the managing director of a counterextremism think tank. thank you for coming in today to talk about this. as outrageous as donald trump's idea is, have you taken any solace in the condemnation of it coming within the republican party? >> i think it's very difficult to take solace. at the end of the day, he's the front-runner within the republican party, somebody who could well be their presidential
candidate. what's really, i think alarming here, is that we're living in a time where there's the politics of grievance, the politics of hate dread, and the politics of trolling, if you like. one of my colleagues yesterday called him a presidential troll. that is in fact what he is. he's been a populist, behaving like a demagogue. we've seen this in the past. in europe, just after world war i, where 15 years after the great war, we -- germany actually really had some of its most libertarian growth, if you like. and we saw some -- the same type of politics being played out. i think it's very difficult to take solace when we have somebody like donald trump who is the front-runner of the republican race to become the president, doing the recruitment for isil. >> we've got people watching us right now in the u.s., and all over the world, so just so we can clear up any doubt, here is the reality when it comes to
muslims in the u.s. a 2009 poll by gallup found muslims have the second highest level of education among religious groups. that's second to jewish people. it also found that more u.s. muslim women have a degree, a college degree than u.s. muslim men. and when it comes to fighting terrorism, a duke university study from 2014 found that u.s. muslims have brought more terror suspects and perpetrators to the attention of law enforcement than official u.s. government investigations. it's precisely the moderate, educated muslims key to fighting terrorism, not just in the u.s., but globally. so why isn't this the dominant image of muslims? >> i think essentially what we have, first of all, i think the fact that there's a belief out there that it's the muslims who are not educated, the muslims who are not integrated, who are the ones that are becoming the terrorists. that actually is a fallacy. you look at the statistics here,
the data in the uk here, for example, 47% of the convicted islamist terrorists in the uk, actually have university degrees and further education, higher education. have been integrated in middle class, within our societies. the third thing, really, around the muslims being one of the most effective keys, one of the most effective tools against terrorism, i think is very, very important. i think the perception, what we're facing is a perception deficit. we don't have enough people talking about the issues within the u.s. and british and worldwide muslim communities, about the problems that we're facing within our societies. we do have a problem. and we need to combat this. we actually need to tackle it. but we can't do it on our own. people like donald trump really actually need to understand what the problem is. and actually work together with the whole of society, arather
than blaming all muslims. >> i guess there's a bit of a reaction to the fact that what donald trump is saying, a lot of people are buying. one way to look at this is donald trump is a successful businessman who knows what his customers want, and at this stage he's simply giving that to them, playing on conservative americans' fears. how do you feel knowing that that seems to be working? i mean, historically, that has a very negative outcome. >> you're absolutely right. one of the things that really alarmed me, if you like, is when he made his speech the other day about his suggestion to ban muslims, first of all, how do you identify a muslim? we're not a race. there are people who are different colors, different ethnic origins. we look different. we're not all -- we don't have muslim stamps on our forehead. but one of the most alarming things for me was not just the fact that he made the speech, and actually the suggestion for
this plan, what alarmed me more was the number of cheers that he received within the audience. there seems to be a view amongst some of his customers, if you like, and that's absolutely the right way to actually frame this, he's trying to sell a product. he's behaving like a demagogue. he actually is somebody who has been successful at being a businessman. he's now becoming a presidential troll, selling the politics of grievance, and it looks like some people are actually receiving that message, and that's what's alarming and that's what's dangerous. >> there's an unanswered question as to how many people truly believe and support him. in the last few seconds here, do you think he will be the next u.s. president? >> i pray that he isn't. there's always a chance that he could be. but i believe that the u.s. public are a lot more sophisticated and intelligent than to allow somebody like him to become their next leader. >> let's continue to have more
discussions like this. thanks for joining us this morning from london. >> my pleasure. donald trump has offended several other groups from mexicans to women. and he's made several highly inflammatory comments. but they haven't kept him from leading the political pack. randi kaye takes a closer look. >> reporter: when donald trump first announced his run for president, he made it memorable. remember this comment about mexican immigrants? >> they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. and some, i assume, are good people. >> reporter: the blowback was fierce. some in the latino community calling him a racist. major corporations breaking ties with him. political insiders saying he was a doomed candidate. but they were wrong. trump jumped seven points in a fox news poll, done completely after his presidential announcement. and it quickly became clear he
was just getting started. in july, he said this about senator john mccain, a
former p.o.w. >> he's not a war hero. he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured, i hate to tell you. he's a war hero because he was captured. >> reporter: the blowback was intense again. trump dropped six points from an abc "washington post" poll to 18% support in a cnn orc poll. but still, he held on to the top spot among all the republican candidates. and his numbers quickly rebounded. the next month trump had women up in arms with this bizarre comment about fox debate moderator meghan kelly. >> you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. blood coming out of her -- wherever. >> reporter: trump later denied he was referring to menstruation. potential voters must have
believed him, because he held steady with support from about a quarter of gop voters, before and after the remarks, according to fox news polls. in september, mr. trump made disparaging comments about carly fiorina, his own female republican opponent, telling "rolling stone" magazine, look at that face, can you imagine that, the face of our next president? a cbs "new york times" poll said he dropped six points after that, but was still in the lead. while we don't
know yet how donald trump's call to ban muslims from entering the u.s. will play out, we do what happened after the paris attacks when trump told msnbc he would strongly consider shutting down u.s. mosques. >> some of the hatred, the absolute hatred is coming from these areas. the hatred is incredible. >> so it's okay -- >> the hatred is beyond belief. the hatred is more than anybody
understands. >> reporter: again defying conventional wisdom and jumping in the polls by four points according to a fox news poll and eight points in an abc "washington post" poll. randi kaye, cnn, new york. more news for you after the break. people in india are gaining more access to electricity. but it comes at a huge cost. pollution, we'll look at the challenges india's facing with its use of coal. after a dvt blood clot.mind when i got out of the hospital
what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots.
if politicians from across the deal to tackle climate change, join me and my colleague, max foster, as we host an interactive debate. >> the panel of experts will have their say on the biggest threats. the studio audience will vote in realtime on the question of what can be done. >> from increasing our recycling, to giving up our holidays. we'll discuss what we can all do
to help. join us for cnn's climate change debate. >> our international viewers can watch the full debate on wednesday at 8:00 in the evening in london, right here on cnn. now, environmentalists say coal is the world's dirtiest fuel. but despite that, india continues to open new coal plants every month. >> cnn goes deep inside a coal mine in eastern india to examine what coal does to india's bottom line. >> reporter: we plunge underground, deep into darkness. we walk almost an hour. we can barely breathe. then a burst of activity. machines blast through rocks excavating coal. a fossil fuel that's heavily polluting, but for india, still precious. i'm more than 200 meters under
the ground at a coal mine in eastern india. and it's mines like this one that powers 60% of the country. abandoned and cheap, coal is an economical way to feed india's voracious and growing appetite for power. 300 million indians still don't have access to electricity. imagine the entire population of the united states living in darkness. coal, though, comes at a cost. pollution. india is the world's third largest emitter of greenhouse gases. and already has a problem with dirty air. burning coal makes it worse. so what are we measuring here? >> this machinery is going to measure the operation. 280 or 290. >> what is acceptable? >> the limit is 100 micrograms. >> you're at 290.
>> yes. it's almost three times. >> reporter: switching to cleaner alternatives will take time. a leading energy researcher said it could mean any capacity you said up, you should use the most acceptable technologies in the market. which is not as polluting, but very much more expensive. >> reporter: india, asia's third largest economy, faces a dual challenge, development versus environment. for tens of thousands of miners who work around the clock, these dark pits are a livelihood. the tens of thousands who still live in darkness, an affordable source of hope. cnn, eastern india. >> if you think the u.s. presidential range seems more foul-mouthed than usual, you're not alone. the strategy behind all the coarse language on the campaign
i've had moderate to severe plaque psoriasis most of my life. but that hasn't stopped me from modeling. my doctor told me about stelara® it helps keep my skin clearer. with only 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses... ...stelara® helps me be in season. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and increase your risk of infections. some serious infections require hospitalization. before starting stelara® your doctor should test for tuberculosis. stelara® may increase your risk of cancer. always tell your doctor if you have any sign of infection, have had cancer, or if you develop any new skin growths. do not take stelara® if you are allergic to stelara® or any of its ingredients. alert your doctor of new or worsening problems including headaches, seizures, confusion and vision problems. these may be signs of a rare, potentially fatal brain condition. serious allergic reactions can occur. tell your doctor if you or anyone in your house needs or has recently received a vaccine. in a medical study, most stelara® patients saw at least 75% clearer skin and the majority were rated as cleared or minimal at 12 weeks. stelara® helps keep my skin clearer. ask your doctor about stelara®.
days, but they're already camped out at a los angeles theater. they're trying to secure a spot for an advanced screening on december 17th, one day before its official launch. >> i came out first for one, and two, and three. now we're all friends and family. it's like a reunion. this is what we do. i couldn't not be here for this. >> now, much of the plot for this new movie has been kept under wraps. but the producer says there's one character you will not see. she confirmed that banks won't be in the new film. thank goodness. many fans consider him just an annoying character. record rains have fallen in parts of the western u.s. this week. while in some places, more than ten feet of snow could fall just this week alone. our meteorologist has been keeping a close eye on this.
and very happy skiers out there, right? >> absolutely. not an annoying character hopefully. on the west coast, the storm door is absolutely left wide open. the western united states, the moisture fetch across this region stretches all the way back out toward the philippines, about a 5,000-mile area from the pacific ocean. in fact, seven-day forecast in places like portland, oregon, you're hard pressed to find much in the way of anything but rainfall each of the next seven days. that's incredible amount of moisture coming down. seattle, a great graphic to share with you in the first seven months of the year. the only months we had above average rainfall, february and march. in the last couple of months, not only have we surpassed what you would typically get this time of the year, we have a surplus of five inches, and the rainfall across that region of the u.s. four to six inches across the western side of the u.s., upwards of a foot of rainfall,
or half a meter across parts of the northwest as well in the next couple of days. when you think about the sierra snow pack, rain good news for drought. snowfall, you think of it as a savings account where the snow comes down, you can keep it in the mountains frozen for many, many months, in the spring season you can disperse it and use it carefully. that's precisely where we had no snow to tell you about the first week of 2014. in 2015, double that amount. great start across this region when it comes to snowfall accumulations as well. you take a look at this. mt. ranier, the highest elevations could get upwards of 180 inches of snowfall just in the next four days alone. that is about 15 feet of snowfall. again, take a look at this. when you think about that much snowfall, the amount is staggering. higher than what a double-decker bus typically is. you bring that snowfall up, about ten inches higher than
that amount. that is how much moisture is coming in across this region of the pacific northwest. a staggering amount of precipitation ahead of us here across this region, guys. >> a lot of snow. skiers will be happy. >> yes. thanks a lot. we'll see you in the sequel tomorrow. >> the triple-decker bus, yes. >> thanks, pedram. voters, a lot of promises from candidates. hearing them swear. >> as jeanne moos reports, in this presidential campaign -- >> reporter: as if they're vying for curser in chief -- >> would i approve water boarding? you bet your ass. >> reporter: are they trying to make america swear again? >> you know how you make america great again? tell donald trump to go to hell. >> reporter: gone are the days when politicians confine themselves to swearing on a bible. even mild-mannered jeb bush
erupted. >> we're americans, damn it. >> reporter: most credit the donald for lowering the bar. >> but it's political bull -- >> reporter: everyone seems to be following in donald trump's well-manured footsteps. >> we need more phone surveillance. bull [ bleep ]. >> i would bomb the [ bleep ] out of them. >> reporter: adds to the macho fact factor, makes them sound like one of us. even cerebral bernie sanders got sick and tired of hearing -- >> about your damn e-mails. >> me too. >> reporter: president obama complimented the u.s. women's soccer team by saying -- >> playing like a girl means you're a bad ass. >> reporter: of course presidents are expected to swear privately. >> we need a billy bat. >> reporter: but it got this fox contributor a two-week suspension when he used the "p" word to describe president obama
as cowardly. >> this guy is such a total [ bleep ], it's stunning. >> reporter: when rich lowrie how fiorina bested donald trump -- >> carly cut his [ bleep ] off with the -- >> what did you just say? >> reporter: the donald wanted an apology for using such language. unhear this. the mayor of philadelphia just said this about you, donald. >> he's an asshole. >> reporter: if you add something profane, the crowd just might go insane. >> bull [ bleep ]. >> reporter: jeanne moos, cnn -- >> i would bomb the [ bleep ] out of them. >> reporter: -- new york. as an australian, i'm totally shocked. i'm rosemary church. >> i'm errol barnett. tell us from where you're watching. >> for our viewers, i'll be back with more "cnn newsroom." stick around. i have asthma...
