enge" where i feature the best gram. topic hash tag, real inspiration. who inspires you most in for me, my mom, told me anything wanted to be i could be. thanks mom. >> take the challenge go to @gretchen fox news hash tag the real story. send me your inspirational photos. here's shep. >> we're barrett investigators to release dash cam video from the police shooting in south carolina them word is it could reveal whether the officer lied about what happened before he shot the man in the back five times. a closer look at airport security. have you heard about this? screeners make us take off our belts and shoes and throw hour waters away but we're learning about hundreds of previously unreported incidents of people sneaking through perimeter security and in some cases boarding jets. hackers say they connected into the islamic state take over a global television network. their message and what it says
about the terrorist tech capabilities. and lil' kim kim jong-un, learning to drive when he was two years old. at least that is what the north korean teachers are supposed to tell their students. and wait until you hear the other bizarre claims about our lil' kim. let's get to it. first, we're waiting to see the dash cam video from south carolina they say could show what led to the moment a cop shot and killed an unarmed man. investigators plan to release the video soon. it could show what the cell phone video does not. the traffic stop that turned dead limit the officer claimed he shot the victim, walter scott, because he felt threatened. prosecutors call it murder. they say he shot walter scoot five time is once through the heard, all while the victim was
running away. now another man is claiming none of this might have happened had police just listened to him in 2013. that man accused the officer of using excessive force during an arrest. he says the over showed up at his home, demanded to come inside. when he put his hands up to surrender he claims the officer tasered him anyway. man had not done anything at all wrong. he wasn't even the person employs were trying to find. and internal investigation later cleared the officer, again, the police department did the investigation, and the police officer was cleared, and allowed to stay on the force. john roberts is on fox's top story and live in south carolina. john? >> reporter: good afternoon. shep. according to the police complaint in that incident in 2013 the officer michael slager was responding to a brother being taken to the home of a possible suspect by the victim when marrow givens man on the left side. the victim yesterday to slager,
he, givens was not the suspect. slager yelled to givens to leave the house but when he refused a struggle ensuesed and slager hit givens with a slager. slager was exonerated but today his attorney is saying he is not buying it. >> we believe that at the particular time in mr. givens' house what went on was wrong, it was ruthless and law husband, givens said he didn't want to leave the house and didn't want to go and tried to close the door because he was quote, afraid of the police. >> we're hearing actually i guess nbc is hearing from the witness to the shooting. >> reporter: he was one of the big guests that they like to put on the air. "the today show" this morning the person who shot the cell phone video on saturday morning said -- this could be crucial to the case but is utterly
contradicts what slager told police in the area going. he said that walter scott never had control of slager's taser. don't forget slager told police in the initial investigation the reason he shot him while he was flying is because he took his taser and he was afraid that he was going to cause bodily injury, either slager or somebody else. >> john roberts, thank you very much. like talk to michael schmitt a reporter who covers police shootings. they have a lot of evidence here and will figure this one out. the climate in the community and how people are treat ode on a regular basis, the "times" has done some reporting. >> currently what they did very quickly is de-escalated it by charging him before we get the video out there. that ratcheted things down and showed them they're actually doing something. win you dig in there there are lot of issues.
it's also similar to ferguson, police department that is predominantly white in an area with a lot of african-americans. >> what about shootings that were questioned by members of the community and otherwise, have they had a lot of them? >> they've had some. the most interesting thing is the taser situation from as recently as two years ago. the thing is that it looked like excessive force. they never charged the man who was tasered. nothing happened to him. usually internal investigations in police departments are criticized for not being tour row. what happened there and why was it he didn't get into the trouble for that? >> you'd like to think there would have been enough evidence outside of the tape that forensics would have shown he was shot five times in the back while running. if there nor fingerprints on the taser -- but maybe that's my naivete. you listen to a lot of african-americans who say, look, this is our living, walking, breathing >> and all of american ohio
history we finally have a video of what one of these shootings looks like. without it you have the witness that would have been dead the witness who shot and ran away, who knows what he would have said. and why would a jury have believed the witness over the officer or any of the other officers that shopped up? >> there's testimony -- there are written reports from other officers on scene, as is standard, they all give their account of what happened. the one officer who is said to have given cpr, never sayings he did. in the same report others officers say they witnessed and/or helped him with the cpr and now a witness says there never was cpr. does your reporting give us a clear picture how much truth is told in those reports? >> there's two videos. there's a second video of what is going on after the fact. and i can't tell you exactly what they're doing but it doesn't look like cpr. they're around the body, touching the body and such but it doesn't look like cpr, and in these key minutes after he was
shot, when there was any chance of saving him, there certainly wasn't any cpr. >> procedure is according to their manual and those of most cop shops once ur subject is subdued and can't hurt you if you shot him, you have a duty to help him other. officers said they applied cpr but there's no evidence of that and witnesses say that dent happen. >> that is not what the videos show. we -- there could be things we don't have, and there certainly was time when it wasn't shot. >> the "times" going to spend some time down there? >> i think so. this police departments seem to be in a lot of places across the country. where do you start? >> mike schmidt from "the new york times." >> we're waiting for a verdict in the aaron hernandez trial. we said it yesterday, and they
deliberated nine hours and nothing, and now they're deliberating into today. we can't read anything into that really. did the former pro football star's lawyer create enough doubt in the jurors' mind with that last-minute claim that hernandez witnessed the shooting but didn't commit the crime? plus how the judge says a television station nearly caused a mistrial yesterday. or at least it was threatened. we'll tell you what the television station did and you tell us.
i'm louis, and i quit smoking with chantix. quitting smoking is a challenge and it's a lot easier to go into a fight when you've got somebody that's got your back. having chantix as a partner made it more successful. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some people had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix or history of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. chantix absolutely helped me quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix
as jurors deliberate for a third day the aaron hernandez murder case, the former pro football player from the patriots, the judge today threatened to call a mistrial. the distance between a threat of a mistrial and a mistrial can be from here to holy holly spring. jurors have to decide whether the former new england patriots star murdered a man in an industrial park in massachusetts two years ago now. that man, oden lloyd, dade dating the sister of hernandez's fiancee. it was said hernandez and two other guys picked up oden and drove to the industrial park and later the day oden's body showed up riddled with bullets. his attorneys say hernandez was a witness, not a the trigger
map. his two friends face murder charges. he is putting it on them and going, i'm a young guy 23, i didn't know what was going on. i just watched this murder. under massachusetts law jurors can fine hernandez guilty of murder even if he did not actually shoot lloyd. prosecutors only have to prove he was involved and had the intent to carry out the crime. intent. that's important. investigators say they still have not found the murder weapon. the gun they say killed oden lloyd. if the jury finds the nfl start guilty he could get life in prison with no chance for parole. there's no death penalty in massachusetts. the trial is featured testimony from aaron hernandez' former boss, the new england patriots owner robert kraft who anyone dez told him he was not part of she shooting. and today two jurors said a local television news crew was
following them around. the station denies it worker approached any juror. no matter what the jury decides, aaron hernandez is set to face trial on separate murder charges after prosecutor says he killed two men outside a nightclub years ago. hernandez has pled not guilty. arthur aidala is here. i nothing of the television news crew. they drop them off at a parking lot. there was a live truck there from whdh. without a reporter no can talked to anybody but they wasn't haywire, which seemed like a reminder to the media stay away, more than anything. >> when i was a younger prosecutor, this is -- this has to do with money. no one was allowed to go near the jury. the jury was empaneled.
phone calls monitored, slept in a hotel, the media not be able to get near them. in fact courtroom used to be locked when the judge was giving the jury instructions because it was such an important part of the proceedings. the sanctity of the jury was so important know, important part of the trial. the story you just reported would be absolutely beyond anyone's majors -- >> a live truck in a parking lot blocks away. >> because of the money, because of budget cuts they don't want to pay the court officers and the clerks and the hotel for the jurors and pay for their meal so is they allow them to go home, and they're giving their word, shep they're not going watch tv or follow media coverage. so that part of trials have changed tremendously. what happened here is this. the defense attorney did -- an old trick dish. >> he complained. >> no, no, forget that. i'm talking about the summation.
>> we're talk bat television news van. >> sorry. >> the van is nothing. they didn't talk to anybody. whatever. here's the thing. this defense attorney at the very end -- the evidence was clearly there he had been there. this is almost exclusively circumstantial case. there's no murder weapon there's no eye witness, very little dna. in the end, the defense attorney goes he was there. >> right. so, you're correct, but the government did a great job of making something. 439 exhibits, ten weeks, 132 witnesses. so you give the impression that there's all this stuff there and the defense attorney admits what he can't deny. so he has to admitter aaron hernandez this, but he deis what the can't admit. he can't admit he pulled the trigger. so he concede as much evidence as he can stopping short of conviction. so makes him seem reasonable to the you'res.
one of those other two guys, who are more experienced or more likely to do it, are the ones that probably did it. >> it doesn't matter. >> by the -- well matters -- you're right. doesn't matter who pulled the trigger. matters whether they're acting in concert. >> if that was the intent. >> and their intent. but he has them thinking and as a criminal defense attorney with this overamount -- ten weeks' worth of evidence, the fact you have kept them out days and days means, okay, i've done a solid enough job, i've given my client a chance. >> did they overprosecute this thing? it went on forever. >> 132 witnesses is a lot of witnesses and in this type of case. if you're talking about prosecuting the world trade center bomber that's different. this is 439 exhibits? that's overwhelming for jurors. but the prosecutors use it like, folks, has to be guilty. look how much stuff we have, even if the stuff is benign. >> how do prosecutors get their job?
>> usually right out of law school and they interview some work up. these are senior prosecutors people who decided i'm not going into in the private sector. >> career prosecutor. >>hat's correct. >> so the jury is still out on aaron hernandez. 'nine hours tuesday and wednesday and whatever they've done today. history tells us they'll be done by the opened the day on friday. >> if he gets convicted of the top count, the judge sentences him immediately. there's no argument. it's mandatory since there's no death penalty, so -- >> then seive about appeal. >> right. it's very -- usually a gap, but here it's like guilty, life without parole-bye, and it's over. >> goodbye mr. hernandez. >> correct. >> iran is not on the same page as the united states and five other countries when its comes to a final nuclear agreement of course, nothing is signed. they're all bloviate, just yack yack yack. the latest from both sides as they yack yack yack.

because we always say the iranians north to be trusted, which they're not. the deadline for the final agreement is at the end of june. lea gabrielle is here. we'll know at the end of june but is the time for everyone to play politics. >> yes, and of course, iran's supreme leader, who -- >> he is playing politics, too trying to keep his people together. >> he has the final say over anything in iran. he has been silent on this so-called deal until today, which happens to be a special day in iran. it is iran's nuclear technology day, and remember that fact sheet the white house produced on the terms of the agreement and here's what the ayatollah said about that. >> translator: the statement they issued and called a fact sheet is mostly bogus. >> well the state department not really reacting to that claim. but rather saying that any sanctions relief is part of a final d.a. deal will be a
phase -- final deal will be phased. >> we are not negotiating in public. the fact sheet represents understanding that were reached. >> today we also learned that the secretary of state and other high-level officials will be briefing congress on this next week. >> robb's support of the rebels in yemen and our support of the saudis is an entirely separate issue. >> they houthis have said iran is not arming them but the secretary of state says it's obvious that iran is selling supplies. >> we are wail aware of the support iran has been giving to yemen, and iran needs to recognize the united states is not going to stand by while the region is destabilized or while people engage in overt warfare

french, and the hacking group anonymous just released a list of names it says are pro-isis and u.s. companies that host those sites. anonymous has attacked web sites associate width the terror group. took over a whole television network and it's online property. that shouldn't be easy. >> if you watched the movie v was easy because anonymous is based on guy fox. it's not easy but what we have here is a failure of imagination. we're style defending yesterday's problems. these guys are looking into the future and defeating us every time. >> the message is key for everything, and if you can steal the message, you win. >> it's control of the narrative. when they called it cybervandalism when isis hacked a twitter and youtube account,
that was not enough. it's a boost for morale. when you control the narrative and control the information warfare, you combine that now with taking an the social media sites and we haven't seen stuff like this ever. >> why isn't it possible to compel the hosts of these web sites to shut them down? >> shep, that has been a question for a long time. when you start finding out where these are hosted in the u.s., they should be shut down. sometimes they're hosted in countries with ha no extra division -- extradition treaty and we can't touch them. >> i understand there's a slippery slope no matter how good something like this sounds, there's a downside you didn't think about. my god, they're recruiting people to break -- to murder people, and to cut their heads off, and it's insane. >> it's crazy, and i tell you this is the one -- coming from a law enforcement background
sometimes the enemy of my enemy is my friend anonymous may have taken on law enforcement but they're sitting back, saying that's fine, take these sites down. they're not paying attention because the know the u.s. knows they cannot take direct action against the cites and take them down quote legally but let anonymous do that and kill two birds with one stone, metaphor include people. >> do you think anonmiss could be of help. >> they are being of help and law enforcement will take a little bit of hands off approach as long as they stay attacking isis some don't branch out and get on their radar it will be okay. that's just the sad fact of life. this isn't 20 years ago. this is the internet age and the rules have changed. >> clearly. so morgan wright, great to talk to you. thank you. >> you bet. >> the jurors in boston deciding whether to convicted marathon bomber should spend life behind bars or die for his crimes. a trial goes on starting next week. the court ruled yesterday that

country? >> all over. we saw the arrests in the past few weeks in new york and in pennsylvania. the one today originating out of the midwest. teenagers from denver were also picked up over in europe as well. and as you mentioned, the head of the fbi said earlier this year at least as it relates to isis there are active investigations in all 50 states. >> wow. is that cherry blossoms blooming? >> i think so. i'm new here but i think so. >> new here in the last few days. looks like it. i saw snow in new york last night. not fun. then there's this. lil' kim learned to drive when he was three years old. that is what students in north korea will learn about kim jong-un and that is not all. we'll look at other lessons in a new teacher's manual in north korea. stand by for news.
