7:03 am
captioning funded by cbs we couple welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the west, we're seeing the anger across the country. police struggled to control these protests in chicago last night. hundreds ss clogged roads, angry that a police officer will not face charges in eric garner's death. in boston protesters lied down in the streets. >> in seattle, a large crowd of demonstrates marched for hours. the biggest protest once again filled new york city streets. police made more than 200 arrests. jim axelrod is in lower manhattan where the anger with police continues to grow. jim, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you know the family of eric garner asked for peaceful protests. for the most part, so far, at least in new york city that's
7:04 am
what we've seen. but last night at least 200 demonstrators were arrested according to the nypd as some of this building tension started to boil over. the entrance to the staten island ferry was one of the flash points last night as large crowds of demonstrators surrounded police as they began making arrests. some even taking swings at the cops. >> i just witnessed him getting punched in the face. >> reporter: some tried to break through barricades while officers fended them off. we found 16-year-old emma in the middle of it all. >> i'm exhausted. i'm sick and i'm tired. i'm defeated. this is just unacceptable. >> reporter: it was a similar scene in times square where more scuffles broke out. dozens of people were taken into custody, loaded onto buses, some saying they'd been charged with disorderly conduct. >> i don't understand how black men can keep on getting killed
7:05 am
like this. we need to do something. he doesn't care. nobody cares. >> reporter: things were calmer at foley square where thousands voiced their anger over the incident, over the grand jury decision over the death of eric garner. >> i think the crowd is tired of unaccountable police. >> reporter: they carried symbolic black caskets across the brooklyn bridge and shut down traffic by sitting in the streets. meanwhile, the head of new york's police union, pat finch, came to the defense of officer pantaleo. >> it's tragedy. but it's also a tragedy the officer has to live with that man's death. >> reporter: offered a glimpse into the grand jury's proceedings. the 23-member grand jury sat for nine weeks and heard from 50 witnesses, including cops civilians, emergency workers and doctors. but for the thousands that took to the streets last night that grand jury decision only fuels a growing distrust about law enforcement.
7:06 am
>> it's a very diverse crowd but a largely white crowd yelling black lives matter. >> that's true yeah. as people say, today it's them tomorrow it's you. so we're really together on this. >> reporter: we've learned officer pantaleo has been the subject of two lawsuits for racially based misconduct. one case settled for $30,000. the other is still pending. gayle. >> that's a new development in that case, thank you, jim axelrod. protesters in phoenix in angry, too, this morning over a police shooting there that killed an unarmed black man. a white police officer shot and killed a man during a struggle on tuesday. a spokesman says the officer responded to a report of a drug deal. he mistook a pill bottle in the suspect's bottle for a gun. the county will decide if that officer should face charges. successfully launched a

space capsule that may some day take astronauts to mars. >> 10 9, 8, 7, 6. >> 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. lift-off. at dawn. >> lift-off indeed. look at that. incredible. wow. beautiful thing to watch. chip reid is at kennedy space center where this important mission is under way after a one-day delay. chip good morning. >> reporter: yes, it was a thunderous launch. i could feel it here on the platform where i'm standing from almost seven miles away from the launch pad. it is a delta 4 rocket, the biggest rocket in the u.s. inven toeshgs carrying an unmanned orion space capsule that will circle the globe twice, reaching an altitude of 3,600 miles. right now it is in that first loop around the globe. it will re-enter earth's
7:08 am
atmosphere at 20,000 miles an hour. that will test the heat shield to make sure it will keep future astronauts safe. nasa calls this a major step towards sending astronauts to mars. but it will be a long time. the first manned flight is not scheduled to happen for another seven years and those flights to mars aren't supposed to happen until 2030. a lot of those future astronauts are in preschool today. >> hey, chip, thanks. this morning the justice department says cleveland offices have a pattern of using excessive force. that finding follows a two-year investigation prompted by the city's mayor. it compan comes less than two weeks after the death of 12-year-old tamer rice. an officer shot him after he waved a toy gun. dean reynolds is outside police headquarters. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and good morning to our viewers in the west. while the justice department did not include the shooting death of tamir rice, it did examine
7:09 am
about 600 cases involving use of force between 2010 and 2013. >> i think the reality is there are problems. >> reporter: attorney general eric holder confirmed what many in cleveland already knew. the justice department looked at hundreds of cases that included gun-toting rogue officers inflaming routine situations slamming their after-action reports or not writing them at all. the reports cited specific incidents including a high-speed chase in november 2012 that turned into this. [ gunfire ] melissa williams and timothy russell killed in a hail of bullets, 137 rounds fired by police. officers thought the couple shot at them first but no guns were ever found in the car. >> it was like a massacre. >> reporter: walter jackson is william's uncle. he calls their death a modern
7:10 am
day lynching. >> once you have that gun and that badge, it's like i'm going to take the law into my own hands. >> reporter: on new year's day 2011 an unarmed mentally ill man named william henderson led cops on a chase. he was allegedly beaten by several officers none of them reported. many departments across the country are going under a justice department review. has any pattern or pathology eamericaned from these that you think leads cops to cross the line? >> i think we certainly see patterns where you see inadequate training, where you see resource deficiencies, where you see cultural problems that exist within police departments. >> reporter: cleveland and the justice department will now try to work out an agreement that could include the appointment of an independent monitor who will oversee and ensure much needed reforms.
7:11 am
>> thanks a lot. big cosby's fighting back this morning over a new accusation of sexual assault. cosby and his attorney fired a sexual assault on thursday against a woman who claims bill cosby molested her 40 years ago. good morning. >> good morning. cosby's countersuit says those claims are meritless and accuses huth of extortion. in court papers obtained by "cbs this morning," bill cosby's lawyer claims huth's attorney repeatedly demanded a six-figure payday to keep quiet, jumping from $100,000 to $250,000 after growing claims of sexual assault from other women. when cosby rejected huth's demand for money, her attorneys rushed to court within a day to file the lawsuit. they started out with negotiations about money before they even filed a lawsuit.
7:12 am
>> reporter: on tuesday huth filed suit, claiming cosby sexually assaulted her at the playboy mansion when she was 15 years old. cosby's attorney alleges huth tried unsuccessfully tried to sell her story to a tabloid. that contradicts her claim that she only began suffering. cosby has refused to answer questions about a growing list of accusations. his attorney has vigorously denied any wrongdoing. on wednesday three more women went public with details of their alleged encounters. >> he approached me from behind and reached over my shoulder and grabbed my right breast. i was stunned and angry because he had no right to do that. >> reporter: the lapd says they are prepared to investigate any claims filed against the comedian. >> we look at any allegation
7:13 am
that's brought forward to us. none have been brought forward to us at this point. we will obviously investigate if they're brought to us. >> bill cosby is seeking more than $33,000 in damages from huth and her attorney. we reached out to cosby and huth for statement. neither has responded. and yesterday, the u.s. navy announced it is revoking cogs buy's title of honorary chief petty officer. he served in the navy for four years in the late 1950s. norah. >> thanks. >> a big announcement at the white house this morning. ashton carter is being nominated to be secretary of defense. if confirmed, the pentagon's former number two official will replace his former boss. secretary chuck hagel is stepping down after two years. major garrett is at the white house where the president has had trouble finding the right fit for the job. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. within the hour, in the roosevelt room president obama will nominate his fourth defense secretary in six years. an historically high rate of turnover indicative of long-running tensions between the white house and civilian
7:14 am
leaders at the pentagon. ashton carter is no stranger to the saga. serving as deputy defense secretary from 2011 to 2013. carter knows that previous defense secretaries bristled under what they perceived at times to be white house micromanaging. he is known for his intellect, one who has respect of the military and knows his way around the bureaucracy. carter does not possess extensive experience in middle east policy or war fighting diplomacy. carter is well known here at the white house as someone who forcefully advocates his position and is not easily intimidated. one official said that makes him a double edged sword. that official wallace not in the mood to sugar-coat white house dissatisfaction with outgoing defense secretary hagel say, well two edge of a sword is better than a sword with no edges at all. >> major, thanks. jordan's king abdullah visited president obama this morning at the white house.
7:15 am
they will discuss the fight against isis, syria's ongoing civil war and middle east peace. i spoke with the king on thursday and asked him about the isis threat. he called it battle between good and evil. connected to a broader global jihadist movement. >> we have to have sooner rather than later, a strategic ballistic approach to dealing with all these organizations that actually are all the same. different names but the same beliefs. >> what would a holistic approach look like? >> this is an issue that we really have to combine our strategies. this is sort of one of the reasons why i'm here in washington. i know we have to concentrate on syria and iraq but we really have to have a planned regional approach to this issue. this is a muslim problem. we need to take ownership of this. we need to stand up and a what is right and what is wrong. this is no reflection of our religion. this is evil and all of us have got to make that decision. we have to stand up and say this
7:16 am
is the line drawn in the sand and those that believe in right should stand on this side and those that don't have to make a decision stand on the other. it's clearly a fight between good and evil. i think it's a generational fight. as i said this is a third world war by other means. >> wait. let me just stop. you say this is a third world war by other means. that's what you said to putin? that's what you'll say to the president of the united states? >> what i believe i've said to the president, i've said to other leaders. this is a generational fight. i hope that generational fights will misunderstand me. the median term is the security aspect of it but the longer term is the ideological one. there are a lot of leaders around the arab world that have had enough and want to come out and say enough is enough. >> why isn't that an easy call for muslim leaders?
7:17 am
why isn't that an easy call to say this doesn't represent the religion? >> you'll see that more and more. and you will see more of that. >> what's an example of that from someone other than you? just give us some times. >> there are discussions between a lot of us coming together to say that we have to make a stand. and as i said because of the total globality of this issue, we all have to coordinate. as i said we're not dealing with an issue just in iraq and -- >> it's all over the world. in our next half hour king abdullah talks about how the israeli/palestinian conflict is the core issue to the extremist problem in the middle east. this morning, an american held hostage by al qaeda is pleading for his life. luke somers captors released a video this week showing him begging for help. they gave the u.s. three days to meet unspecified demands or somers would quote, his fate.
7:18 am
his mother and father responded yesterday. >> he is not responsible for any actions the u.s. government has taken. please understand we had no prior knowledge of the rescue attempt for luke and we mean no harm to anyone. >> please show us mercy and give us an opportunity to see our luke again. he is all that we have. >> the u.s. raid in yemen last week rescued eight captives but missed somers. officials say he was moved before the attack. an american couple is home. after a middle eastern nightmare. the huangs were jailed in qatar for nearly two years, accused of starving their 8-year-old adopted daughter to death. an appeals court threw out their conviction. the couple was not allowed to leave their country until yesterday. they talked about waiting nearly two years for justice in their first interview, that's only on "cbs this morning." a super typhoon is heading

how the twitter hash tag climbing while white started. it started as a half joke about white privilege. soon, people were confessing to crimes they got away with at a rate of 600 tweets per minute. some saw the online campaign as a source of solidarity. one tweet said i shoplifted when i was 14 and they let me go because my parents came down and we beinged like a nice family. by thursday morning there was a backlash by many african-americans on twitter. the senior deputy editor at "ebony" magazine launched a hash tag alive while black. until then the protests were mostly peaceful, nothing like the rioting we saw in ferguson, missouri, last week after the grand jury acquitted the police officer who killed mike brown. michelle miller looks at it. good morning. >> good morning. more than 200 protesters have been arrested this week in new york. most for disorderly conduct violations. the mayor has thanked
7:34 am
demonstrators for remaining calm. he's also commended police for showing proper restraint. within hours of the news that a grand jury declined to indict officer pantaleo yesterday, thousands spread across new york city and blocked traffic. like last week's protest in missouri, these demonstrations were televised across the nation. but did not result in widespread destruction. new york city police commissioner bill bratton. >> the police were certainly intent on allowing them to demonstrate, if you will. >> is unique uniquely qualified to have a situation like this? >> i think one of the things we benefit from is we have so many demonstrations. i have 150 events on average every week in the city. >> last week ferguson exploded despite assurances law enforcement had plans in the
7:35 am
makings for months. looters ransacked. police fired tear gas and dozens were arrested for arson and robbery. >> there's no question hat a lack of operational experience has an impact potentially on performance. >> steve iams. is a former new jersey police chief. he acted as a police observer to the response in ferguson. >> most of those officers had never stood on a skirmish line, never had a shield a gas mask on in an environment like that. >> iams says deployment in new york also made a different. 5,000 cops were standing by on wednesday, many in midtown manhattan, to control crowds at the annual christmas tree lighting. missouri's governor activated 700 national guardsmen before the grand jury decision but the troops were not deployed until the morning after the riots. an additional 2,200 troops were then brought in to secure the ferguson area but by then the damage was done. >> beyond question there were 25
7:36 am
fires, 24 buildings burnt to the ground. in hindsight, it's easy to criticize resources weren't put where they needed to be. >> sent nypd detectives to ferguson to observe tactics and that may have helped them hone their response. >> michelle, thanks. after a new infusion of cash, ride share company uber is valued at $40 billion. that's the biggest amount for a private company since facebook went public. rapid growth has fueled the company's stunning rise. its value has more than doubled in just six months. cbs financial contributor mellody hobson is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> so why is uber valued so high? >> so let's talk about this explosive growth and they make money. so just to give you some context. last year, they were operating in 60 cities in 21 countries. this year 250 markets in 50 countries. this company is six times bigger than it was last year.
7:37 am
and not only are there older markets doing well, their newer markets are growing even faster. >> why? >> well, can they sustain it? >> that's the question. for me, here's my skepticism. there are no barriers to entry for what they do. there's no question the app is very easy to use, the pricing is as you like it. they've done a lot of things that are so smart. but competition sees this kind of spectacular growth and they want to come in. part of the reason they raised money in this latest round is to spend in asia against some of the competition. that's one thing. the next. the regulatory environment is there. they have to get over some of the hurdles. >> i like that you point out this is actually a company, too, that's making company where some other technologies are not
7:38 am
making this kind of revenue. $40 billion to value this company, that's beggar than delta air lines, kraft foods, hershey, conagra. it goes on. it's hard to believe. >> it's bigger than this network. >> yeah. really, it's a staggering amount of money. >> but it's based on how much investors, smart investors were willing to put into the company. that's what they use as a mark for their valuation. >> yes. but it's your price for perfection in this situation. they've got to deliver on all of these promises. the ceo says he sees a day when you won't have a car because they will be the deliverer not just of people but of everything. >> like food. >> everything. you know, the ultimate logistics company globally. now, that's a tall promise. again, with all these regulatory issues still to be overcome. >> but it is a difference a different experience. i use it a lot. a driver said the other day, can i see your hand.
7:39 am
i can see you're a happy person by your lifeline -- could it be he wanted extra points? he got five stars. it's a very different experience. >> yeah. but they've got three class action lawsuits right now. they've got a lot -- and some ethical issues. >> thank you, mellody. "in cold blood" is a classic crime tale. >> do much hunting, mr. hitchcock? >> oh, that's his gun, dick's. >> half a century later, the investigator's son claims that the truman capote, that he got that wrong. that's next on "cbs this morning." get ready for some german engineered holiday excitement. at the volkswagen sign-then-drive event. right now, for practically just your signature, you could drive home for the holidays in a new volkswagen. like the sporty, advanced new jetta and the precisely engineered passat tdi. ah, the gift of clean diesel. for the new volkswagen on your list this year just about all you need, is a pen.

an explosive claim is rocking the literary world this morning. "in cold blood" is considered a definitive account of a kansas fame family's 1959 murder.
7:44 am
why the book isn't really fix. good morning. >> in cold blood is credited with being a true crime genre and capote is one of the most celebrated writers of his generation. but it's noted he may have fabricated facts in his story. he claims every word in his book is true. his books have been in many films with oscarphilip seymour hoffman starring. in cold blood recounts the murder of herbert and his wife and two children in their kansas home and how the two suspects were caught convicted, and eventual ly
7:45 am
eventually killed for the crimes. in the book and the movie adaptation, he found incriminating information without mentioning the murders. >> do you do much hunting, mr. hickock? >> oh, that's his gun. dick's. >> according to the records only his mother was home at the time. they did the investigation with three oerps. ralph boss has written a book about the iconic author. >> capote got the big details right but he fudged the smaller details in order to make an effective narrative and he was brilliant at it. >> reporter: now nye's son romd wants to turn his dad's papers into a book and correct the historical record. harold nye was not a fan of either capote or the movie.
7:46 am
