7:05 am
came out onto the field with their arms raised, a show of support for the hands up, don't shoot movement. the gesture drew a strong reaction from the police association. in a statement they said they were profoundly disappointed with the players' decision to engage in a display that police offers around the nation found tasteless and unnecessary and inflammatory. he says he hopes he can move forward. what is he doing now, what's next for him? >> going forward he wants to translate as much of this event as he can into a teachable moment, and i think he wants to share with people the lessons that he has learned from ferguson, and i hope he does. >> reporter: now at a press conference after the football game, the rams players said that they did that gesture as a show of solidarity for the citizens of ferguson in a way, to help
7:06 am
them heal to help them move forward. as for darren wilson his lawyer says while he's no longer employed at the ferguson police department, his wife still is. the couple's expecting a baby in the future. that's why there's been a vigorous online fund-raising campaign under way to help them. >> thank you so much. an urgent warning. it alerts the military, law enforcement, and the intelligence community to possible attacks by isis supporters right here in the united states. isis is reportedly looking for supporters already here inside the united states, but there is no information about an expected attack or imminent threat. this morning many of our nation's stores are reeling after black friday. the national retail federation says thanksgiving sales dropped 11%. that's compared to last year. online retailers are hoping today, cyber monday promotions will turn their fortunes around. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> so what happened? >> well, i think this is a
7:07 am
strange retail season. we saw walmart, the world's largest retailer kick things off a week before black friday. i think that siphoned off sales. we should note there were some bonuses here. we saw traffic on thanksgiving way up. traffic on black friday down. online sales on both thursday and friday were very strong but overall the numbers are not great. >> yeah, but when you look at the video, jill it's so hard to think that the numbers are down with all the pushing and shoving and the stores are packed. >> it does seem this way. there are a lot of people and these are big numbers. but we know from shoppertrak that the numbers of people in stores were actually down. they spent less money per item and the retailers are hoping that this elongated season makes up for that initial drop. >> and today is cyber monday. are they expecting sales to also be down? >> no, this is really interesting. i think sales will be lessening. they expect them to shop $2.5 billion in sales which is a little higher than last year. but you know what.
7:08 am
cyber monday has really changed. i am old enough, maybe you may not be to remember we did cyber monday because our internet connection at home was so slow. we just went through our bosses and said hey, let's use this fast connection. it's the fourth best deals for cyber monday. the actual best day for online deals was thanksgiving day, with average discounts of 25%. >> there's an interesting study by the national retail federation suggesting that more people use their home computers than mobile devices because we all had the impression that mobile devices were the new shopping tool. >> well it's certainly a tool. and about 20% of people are making purchases. but absolutely the home computer is where the action's at. over 80% of people using that home computer. i think the apps are informing our decisions. we did have some research that pointed to something fascinating to me. 50% of in-store sales are attributed to some form of digital. so this is a changing consumer mind-set for sure.
7:09 am
>> that's right. you may see it online but then you want to touch it and buy it in the store. thank you so much. the ohio state buckeyes are grieving this morning for a football player who took his own life. the body of kosta karageorge was found sunday, four days after he was last seen. don dahler is here with developments that could give more insight into what exactly happened. don, good morning. >> good morning. shortly before karageorge disappeared, he sent his mother a text message indicating he was disoriented. due to a recent concussion. now fans and family are wondering if these head injuryies could have played a role in his death. hours after his death students gathered at ohio state to remember their friend and teammate. the body of the championship wrestler and walk-on football player who stood 6'5" and weighed 285 pounds was discovered in a dumpster, steps away from his columbus apartment. >> he died from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
7:10 am
we recovered a firearm at the scene. his parents have been notified. >> reporter: the 22-year-old senior was last seen by roommates on wednesday morning. before leaving his apartment karageorge sent a cryptic message to his mother, saying he had recent issues from a recent concussion. texting i'm sorry if i've been an embarrassment. karageorge's mother said he had a history of concussions including one last month and that they caused him episodes of confusion. in a statement the ohio state's team physician said while we are not able to discuss or comment the medical care regarding our student athletes we are confident about our medical procedures and policies to return athletes to participation following an injury or illness. the discovery of the body ended a city-wide search for the student, one that attracted over 150 volunteers and brought saturday's game against michigan to a virtual standstill. >> a first-year football player has been missing since wednesday. >> reporter: now, all that remains are questions about karageorge's mental state at the time of his death.
7:11 am
>> you'd sit down with him on the couch and there's always something you'd walk away remembering. >> reporter: at this point, no definitive link between karageorge's death and his concussions have been made. officials say the investigation is ongoing and expect autopsy results in the coming days. gayle. >> such a sad story. thank you, don. ray rice is free to return to the nfl after an arbitrator threw out his indefinite suspension. commissioner roger goodell, as you know benched the former baltimore raven in september, after video appeared showing rice knocking his future wife unconscious. goodell insists he was misled about the attack. but janal rice tells nbc goodell news everything at the time he first suspended him for two days. >> i can say he's telling the truth, you know. i know for fact that he told --
7:12 am
that ray told the honest truth that he's been telling from february. >> and you think the league and the commissioner covered their butts? >> i think they did what they had to do for themselves. p>> "new york times" sports columnist bill rhoden is with us. he wrote this morning, there are no heroes here and a lot of potential villains. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you think about janay's comments? >> he did -- he was not misled, you know. what the arbitrator said -- it's important to realize that the arbitrator's ruling is not that ray rice is a good guy, but that the nfl made a mistake. they made a procedural mistake. that they basically it was double jeopardy. what they did the first time was slap him on the wrist. and then when this videotape -- which they may or may not have seen -- that's the next shoe getting ready to fall -- >> well -- >> go ahead. >> specifically what roger goodell said in an interview with us was that ray rice and his representatives were ambiguous about what
7:13 am
happened on that night. the judge said he did not mislead the nfl at the meeting. so there's that. and then she said that the nfl abused its discretion. what does it mean for the nfl? >> i want to know what it means for janay speaking out about the nfl while her husband is trying to get a job. >> i'm not sure who's advising her. but, you know, you're trying to campaign for this guy to get a job, which is hard enough, you know, but now you're blasting the nfl. at the same time you're saying by the way, give my husband a job. knowing inging whoever touches this guy, the team is going to be -- they're going to be showing this video all the time. so to me if you're trying to petition for a job, you really have to back up and slow down. because the arbitrator has already said, listen, he made a mistake, any team is free to hire him. i'll be stunned if somebody hires him. as big and as mercenary as the nfl is that the only thing that
7:14 am
matters is money -- >> so it will not harm -- >> i mean, can you imagine? i may be i may be short-selling how mercenary the nfl is but i just can't see anybody hiring him now. >> what about roger goodell, what -- >> people have to understand roger goodell is not the czar of morality. he is the commissioner who works for 32 -- it's like, wait a minute, this is our asset, what are you doing, you can't do that. he's working for them. basically, that's why he's not getting fired. he basically is doing their bidding. there's no sponsors are pulling out. you know, so no this keeps rolling. i'll just be surprised if rice gets a job. >> this season. >> this season. >> thank you, bill. courts in hong kong are banning people from protesting in parts of the region this morning. the rulings followed a violent
7:15 am
night of pro-democracy rallies. seth doane is in beijing, at the root of the anger. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. police and pro-democracy protesters in hong kong have been engaging in a sort of back and forth. as police have successfully been removing protesters camps and clearing roads. earlier this morn frustrated student leaders encouraged those protesters to surround government headquarters. but that cause the increased clashes with police. we saw police using batons pepper spray, even water to try to disperse those protesters. at least 40 people were arrested. another 40 people were hospitalized. this as overall public support for the protesters has really waned. we've seen the hong kong stock market fall as well. protesters took to the streets more than two months ago to push for more local control over elections, norah. that process is currently controlled by the central government here in beijing. >> all right, seth. thank you.

7:18 am
>> we can ask, we can ask nicely, we can ask strongly, we can use strong words, but besides that, we can't force them to hand over the huangs. >> reporter: both american and qatari diplomats tell cbs news that the huangs were blocked because the appeal process is ongoing. but the family is tired and they want to go home to their two young sons who are now living with family in california. >> thank you. rain in california is creating new problems for california this morning. rocks and debris poured into parts of the pacific coast highway on sunday. a nine-mile stretch is still closed west of los angeles. >> meteorologist danielle niles of cbs station wbz is tracking the latest wintry storm. danielle, give us the latest. >> charlie, good morning to you. good morning to our viewers in the west.
