uprising? >> i didn't know it actually until last evening, a gentleman that i know send it to me. i was not surprised, because i -- i know that the nonviolent movement that our father led has inspired many movements across the world. when it happened, i said there has to be some influence of daddy in this. when it's all said and done and over, we'll discover it. so i was delighted to discover it. there is a distinct difference. my father's nonviolence we you seek to defeat injustice or put injustice out of business. it's not about defeating a person. so we have to lift that up. that's what we're trying to do through the king center under my brother's leadership, et cetera. it's timeless, relevant for all those people that said nonviolence doesn't work anymore? this is a common-day example that it continues to work, and it galvan fizs especially young
people. i was inspired it was led by young people. >> which was the movement. as you started to watch these pictures, which is 19, 20 days ago now, coming out here on cnn and watching all those pictures, did something click in your head and go, did you think there was a possibility through that nonviolence in the beginning it would transpired into this? >> you know, i wasn't sure. i was concerned, and i was -- i was -- i was ecstatic when i heard all of the reports and when the message spread about them insisting on being nonviolent. in the end nonviolence wins. violence only leaves in its wake other violence. my hope is people will understand that nonviolence is not just a tactic we embrace, but as daddy taught those in the movement, it's a way of life. especially for courageous people, and these young people were certainly courageous. >> thank you, bernice king.

as many of you know, if you follow the super bowl. 400 fans found out when they got to cowboys stadium, they did not have seats, were supposed to sit in the temporary area seats were added to break the super bowl attendance area. the seats were not added in the seats were not completed in time. michael avanti is an attorney representing plaintiffs in the class action suit filed over the ticket snafu, i asked him who the plaintiffs are in this case. >> the plaintiffs in this case don, are the facts that were displaced at cowboys stadium last sunday together with all the fans delayed getting to their seats. >> how many people are we talking about here? >> we're talking about approximately 2,500 to 3,000 people. >> why weren't they told before they got to the game they didn't have seats? >> that's an excellent question and one we hope to get to the bottom of. it's clear to us, based on comments made by the nfl that the nfl was fully aware, before sunday, that there were problems
with these seats and yet they ignored the problems, hoping it would simply go away. >> how much are you asking for? i understand it's millions, is that correct? >> well, we've alleged $5 million in the complaint. we think it's going to take about that to adequately compensate these fans. >> wait, michael. $5 million for a super bowl ticket? >> no. we're not talking about $5 million per fan, don, we're talking -- >> i understand that. $5 million for missing the super bowl. to the average person, it sounds like a lot of money. >> the fact of the matter is the average cost to attend the super bowl for a fan is somewhere in the neighborhood of $7,000 to $10,000. a lot of these people took out loans, sold assets, a lot of these people are diehard football fans that made this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. they got there and they were not given what was sold to them. it's just that simple? >> let me get -- i understand
the nfl made two offers to the fans, to the 400 fans who did not get seats to the game. a free ticket to next year's super bowl plus a cash payment of $2,400, three times the face value, they say, of the ticket. others can get a ticket to the future super bowl and don't get the cash settlement. still, you say that's not enough. >> it's not enough because in many instances it won't compensate people for what they spent for the ticket alone let alone all the travel expenses associated with attending the super bowl. what we proposed is the nfl step up and reimburse people for what they paid along with some other nominal consideration, whether it be tickets or something of that nature. this really isn't that complicated. they need to take care of their fans and customers. let's update your top stories right now. the first one in new york, a suspect in a terrifying rampage awaiting arraignment. maksim gelman went on a stabbing spy allegedly that lasted 28 hours.
