with the bathroom only as what is on the birth certificate. pay pal decided not to open the house in the state of north carolina and brous spring ten and other performers cancelled shows. this and the city council was offered to once in may and cent. we'll repeal if you repeal the ordinance and then after the election, a democrat was elected governor and beating pat mckrory and they said we'll repeal our ordinance if you repeal hb-two. this is what the governor said. >> sudden reversal with little notice after the gubernatorial ended sadly found it was all
about politics at the expense of charlotte and the entire state of north carolina. >> even though he agreed to it hold the special session there was resistance from the gop members of the state of government. the lupt governor dan forest. i support hb two and did not favor the repeal. there will not be going to prevent org city or county to take us down this path again. this may be the arguments that we will hear for repealing hb-two. republicans want it in place and charlotte's repeal is defending on the repeal of hb-two. we may end up where we are are today, jenna.

a fed- exspokesperson said they are grateful the driver was not hurt. and the water chris is. two emergency managers marshals and charged now with felony and the this was when the city of flint began to draw money from the river. and they complained about smell and rashes and other problems and they offered detroit a chance it reconnect and 2015. doctors urged the city to top using the river water after fining high levels of lead for the children and rick snyder acknowledged the action and governor snyder declared a national emergency and handing out water and filters and they
are reporting improvement and residents are continuing to use the fulters. he will file criminal charges and putting cost savings ahead of public health. >> the tragedy that we know as the flint water crisis did not occur by accident. no, flint was a casulty of arrogance and disdain and a failure of management and an absence of accountability and shirking responsibility. and we will prosowed. we'll hold those accountable that broke the law. president. we have our attorneys. it is a felony.
and what dew mean charging someone as an intent. snshg the criticinal charge that they are facing and false pretense and the mischaracterization to acquire money or property. this is what they obtained a bond with the understanding. and we understand that this investigation is going for sometime and they are charging lower levels. and i believe they are cooperating with the investigation and official and may be providing. and that is a different water source.
that doesn't sound criminal. where does it go from trying to save money and something that is misleading in a way. >> you buy cheep, you buy twice and perhaps they were doing that in tight consideration. but to say they intended to poise know the water system is something else. it could be a difference of opinion and how to address moving water whether there is a pipeline or monday. but to it say they had the intent to poison is a high level of and difficult to prove. >> and what do you mean? it is something that they done care that people were getting poisoned and they were saving money. is that what they need to see to be guilty of the charges. >> we don't know what the lower officials are saying and cooperating with the investigation.
when you continue to make decisionses and know that the water is full of lead. you had an emergency manager overrule the vote 7- 1 and saying they wanted to stop using the river water and reconnect with the deit troit source and you overrule that. after the epa rennered it hazardous waste that is criminal. >> that is a valid point. but perhaps they were relying on information that showed the new water could support the city. it is one thing to say they are criminal responsible. and perhaps the solution here is a follow-upped to help young children that have health issues now. and they have politics at play in a lot of different levels.
but what about the people hurt by this? and by the children who did get lead poisoning. and what will legal repercussions for them. >> it is sad and horrendous and thinking about the lifelong effects kids are having to deal w. they will go to civil court and try to get a financial reward. what does that do for someone. and once you have lead in your system there is no getting rid of it. >> what can someone in prison do in prison. >> accountability. you keep making decisions when you know. >> they are low level player ares. perhaps other higher level are responsible and these were just following orders. perhaps someone else is responsible. >> they are going for the bottom of the totem pole and the governor needs to be charged and held accountage. >> that is amazing how far up do
you go? and we should mention flint water again not approved still to get in the water out on of the tap. jon? >> we take you to los angeles where robert durst has been wheeled in court for a hearing. the new york state real estate heir charged with murdering a friend susan burrman in los angeles. she anyhowy he had kill canned his first wife. and the body was never found. he was subject to the documentary called the jinx. and we'll keep you updated on all of the legal comings and goings in the robert dufrt case. >> more troops will be withdrawn
and they are offering a reward for his arrest and he has six alias and also on a police watch list. he was supposed to it be deported and that did not happen. more on the story when we get it. >> the u.s. military plans to withdraw more than a thousand troops from afghanistan in the coming weeks. the taliban is pushing in to fill the void, gaining ground and getting stronger. five americans remain hostage including two small children. and luca s joining us live with more. >> jon, many people don't realize 12 americans have been killed in afghanistan since early october and five are held hostage. this has had the u.s. military is preparing to it take out 100
troops in afghanistan. in early december there were 9800 and now it is 8400 or will be by january 1st acting on the president's order over the sum isser. this as the violence in afghanistan continues. they breached the largest american base and kill canning five and wounding roughly a dozen. many wounded are still here recovering in walter proceed hospital inside of the beltway. it is not based on fact, but it is used as a way to essentially undermine the afghan government and alstory the belligerent.
this comes after the release of a new video shows a american and her canadian husband and children both born in captivity. they were kidnapped while hike nothing afghanistan. icate len was pregnant and the ha cani network is the most sophisticated terrorist group in pakistan. and in the video she was seen pleading to president obama "with don't be the next jimmy carter". they are holding an american professor and a man from massachusetts, jon. >> so many people would like to forget about what is going on in afghanistan but the war there continues, thanks. >> and a court hearing for
robert durst getting underway. you might remember him from the hbo jinx. and he deflies the allegation. jon thonment >> jenna this is the latest chapter in what is likely to be the most trials. l.a. prosecutors believe he killed her are because she was about to tell authorities what she anyhow about the unsolved disappearance. and dufrt has always denied
having anything to do with the murders. or the disappearance of his first wife. he was caught on mike and off camera saying this. [inaudible] kill them all, being. >> at his first court appearance here in l.a. last month, he once again claimed that he was not guilty of burrman's murder. listen again. >> and i want to say here and now, though. i am not guilty and i did not kill susan burr berman. >> reporter: one of the questions is an interview carry out by the l.a. prosecutor, when durst was first charged in 2015. he was appearing to be willing
to discuss's plea deal. i am not saying john this is it without my lawyer agreeing and i am very willing to talk to you. dufrt said because of his health issues, he has a life expectancy of five years. his life has been extraordinary. it has been shocking. his murder trial is likely to be both of those things throughout 2017. and we'll bring every bit p of it to you as it happens. >> we look forward to learning the truth. johnathon, thank you. >> we would like to welcome you to the first day of winner. the shortest day of the year. there also would be a lunar eclipse and one of the largest darkest night. there will be nine hours of
sunlight and meaning 14 hours of darkness. the day has six hours less light than you get in the summer solstice. that doesn't mean it is necessarily the coldest. chief meteorologist rick, has his finger in the win. >> i am depressed with all of those statistics of darkness. the days get longer and more and more light and that's how i like to it think of the beginning of winter and here we go. 5:44 a.m. and pacific time and that means that the northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun. and with the majority of the winter weather type happens. and we factor our seasons from the first to the first. and if you are anywhere in the
u.s., you know that wint wither is solidly holding on. and 38 in rapid city and we are 60 degrees warmer than we were last week around minneapolis. and all of the southern stateses and yesterday at that time and noaha released the outlook for january through march. and that is a better than ever chance of above average temperature. and so is maybe that cold air will be out of here and the northern tier. we might see cold canner temperatures and making its way down in the northern tier. and precipitation average. and that is hopefully the last weeks are behind us.

dollar that airlines are raking in. he's live at la guardia. >> reporter: john, just when we were getting used to the check baggage fees, now carry-on bags could be the next victim of the fees popping up when you fly now. and it could mean billions of dollars more revenue for airlines, and united is the first major airline to do this. introduce this for their basic economy fares joining spirit and others like that. this really could mean a lot of money. united expected to make another billion with the checked bag fee. and of course, these fees have really been adding some. up carriers charging for pillows and blankets on planes. most charge for the wi-fi, the in-flight television. billions made from ticket change fees. those are really big ones. they charge a lot of money to change your seat or which flight you go on. and many airlines charging you to choose your seat. when you get on the plane. now the privilege of sitting next to your family members, they found a way to charge for
that as well. demand for air travel though still increasing. so we might not see any end to the fees any time soon as more an more people want to fly and take the fees, but the fraugs administration is pretty clear when you talk to people at airports. >> we buy our ticket on kayak. you see the lowest fare, that's the fare you pick. the airlines can't raise the fares, so they get you on the fees. >> we're talking about a lot of money. if you take away the baggage fees and seat reservation fees and all the other fees, the airlines profits will be half. >> reporter: you can use southwest or a new operation called glow out of new orleans. they're coming up with the no-fee ideas that people are really latching on to. southwest says they saw a billion in revenue when they introduced they bags fly free program. that was years ago. congress looking at some kind of bill that they want to put in place to make airlines justify
