6:08 am
happenedment on tuesday, police in the township were called to twin hill elementary school for a report of a theft. officers learned 12 ipads were stolen, they believe the tablets were swiped at some point during the summer break. apple ipads are not cheap talking a lost, last year the willingboro school district reported the same theft but much bigger numbers, 150 devices at that time. but the district wasn't sure if the ipads were snatched from a school, or from a district warehouse. either way with each one costing roughly $400, that hit cost tax pairing $68,000. they were not happy. so, police spokesman says it is too early to tell if this latest incident is connected to the incident last year, but if you have any information about these ipads, that's of course, you're asked to call the willingboro township police, kerrey, chris? >> lauren, thank up. 6:08. taking a look back on this day of remembrance. >> thirteen years ago today, new yorkers were determined to

6:17 am
month. this conference will be the first time the justices have that issue before them. how much it, doesn't mean the court will decide to hear state appeals of lower courts who have struck down bands on same sex marriage, ' peels filed. no arrests, no jail time, no criminal record. new legislation decriminalize g marijuana possession in the city of brotherly love to be clear the bill doesn't actually legalize pot, but if police catch someone with ounce or less the penalties will be civil penalty which can be expunged. for those who worry about the children and when this says to them, philadelphia mayor michael nut her this to say. >> i expect par lengths continue to say their kids stay away from drugs, stay away from narcotics. and i will continue to send that message, i think that making sure that kids get, whether in school, or in some other setting, more
6:18 am
information about why drugs are bad for you, and all of those kind of things, or other parts of more holic i can approach. communicate, stay in touch, as we know, mayor nutter is a parent himself. the law by the way would take effect october 20th. a new jersey woman claims that a bachelorette party at hair's casino in atlantic city turned into a nightmare. >> so she says security guards beat her up two years ago, now, she is suing that casino. same i's walsh's suit similar claims against the casino. walsh was hosting vip bachelorette party at harrah's pool after dark for her cousin, who is legally blind. she claims everything was fine, when a minor seating issue with six women became a major problem. >> so for five, we toll them we made reservations for six, we asked to speak to a manager. the situation escalated. next thing i knew i was being dragged without my shoes through the casino, cutting up

6:21 am
although emotional wounds from 9/11 are still raw, the physical wounds are healing. and there is tangible proof of that. for the first time on a september 11, the world trade center museum is open. one world trade center opens later this year. four world trade center opened in november. more than 5 million square feet of office space has been leased in one, four, and seven world trade. >> today no long area plan for the future, it is a real place, not just in new york but in the worlds. and i have to say that personally i'm both humbled and inspired by the process? but a process that has been plagued by delays, haggling, cost overruns, for example, the distinctive world trade center transportation hub, which the authority says will serve more than 200,000 commuters each day, isn't supposed to open until next year. that's eight years behind schedule, and $2 billion over budget. the port authority's advice chairman acknowledged that,
6:22 am
yes it, could have been built for less. >> i'm not sure i would have come out and had spent that much along the way, i think we could have probably found a way to have done that and achieved the same type of impact. >> but today is a day when all of the planning and prognosticating pauses and we reflect on the past. at the end of this day, in lower manhattan, the tribute in light will ill loom night the sky. those are the twin beams of light that are stunning and stands in the place of where two buildings once stood. the beams will remain lit until sunrise tomorrow morning. that is the latest, live from battery park city this morning, back to you. okay, thank you. 6:22, and as we take a break, we will leave you with a live look at the reflection pools from the world trade center. we will be back.

6:31 am
could have been bad weather, got off course, didn't know until the second one happened. then we did. now, we have a look at bus stop buddy. he's here to show you that there may n some thunderstorms a little later on, off to muggy start this morning with temperatures in the 60s, umbrella for late day thunderstorms possible for most of us, six out every ten, your number today. it will feel like summer. but quite humid. and it means thunderstorms later on in the day. 69 degrees, with sunrise at 6:38. southerly winds 7 miles an hour, relative humidity up there. at 87%. cold front on the way but most of the rain from it, at this point, although we had some rain to the north little earlier, in the western part of the state around pittsburgh. phillies game tonight, one more with the pirates. not really the rubber match like i said yesterday. now we can tie up the series at least if we win tonight. but there will be the possibilities of pop up thunderstorms, 83 degrees when the game begins at 7:05. at citizens bank park.
6:32 am
and there will be a salute to firefighters and police officers, before the game, as well, on this september 11. eighty-eight is the high today. cloudy, muggy, afternoon storms, then tonight we will see gradual clearing, low of 61. that's your foxcast for thursday. >> good morning, everyone, still dealing with talcony palmyra bridge opening, so open, for ship to cross the river, which means, it is close to vehicle access. you can't get through there. cannot use the talcony palmyra have to use the betsy ross, ben franklin, any of the other bridges. route one we have devereaux and commonly avenue, construction still there. it has got one lane blocked. route one northbound. finally still in plymouth meeting, our only accident of the morning. but, it is an accident in which a vehicle struck a pole. this is plymouth road at irwin lane. take caution in this area, not seeing too many delays building but still have the accident on the scene. kerry? >> of course. caitlin, thank you. 6:32, right now, happening
6:33 am
right now, the judge in the murder trial of oscar pistorius says prosecutors have not proved beyond a reasonable doubt that he is guilty of premeditated murder. this >> this as we take live look in the courtroom. listen to the judge as she begins to review the evidence of the 37 different witnesses that testified. she has yet to deliver her verdict, though, she said there were not enough facts to support the charge in the shooting death of pistorius' girlfriend, reeva steenkamp, just comments she is looking, and we're listening in. fox 29 legal analyst ken rotweiler will be joining us in a few minutes, that is been studding this and listening very closely, he will talk about this in just a little while. meanwhile, at 6:33, it has been 13 years since the september 11 terror attacks, and president obama now making his case for military action against isis. >> speaking, the president detailed his fourth part strategy to stop the threat of terror. fox 29's steve keeley now live
6:34 am
at the 9/11 memorial, lower makefield, has more on the president's speech. steve, perhaps, even more importantly, the timing of the speech. >> yes, that was no accident. the eve of 9/11, and ever since that date, 13 years ago, in has been a common site. bomb sniffing dogs, even here, even this early in the morning, before any ceremony takes place, this belgium, and his trainer, just sniffed our truck, and of course, popular tv show, terrorists posing as a tv report her a bomb laden tv news truck. so, of course, now we are getting an extra look at because we know terrorists sometimes learn things from television. so there we are, there is a sign of life, and how it has changed in the 13 years since 9/11. as we spin around here at the garden of reflection, the sunrise now, sunrise so different for all of those families, who lost people, 13 years ago, on this date.
6:35 am
and that is why this beautiful park, and beautiful memorial, are here now. and it will be one of the many places around the world today, where there will be those moments of silence, and those thoughts, and those memories, and those awful memories for so many of us, of where we were, what we were doing on this date. that's why the president likely will have no greater date to get support for what he called for last night from the white house to go after more terrorists and do it with american might and power. >> it will take time to irradicate a cancer like isis. any time we take military action, there are risks involved specially to the servicemen and women who carry out these missions. but i want the american people to understand how this effort will be different from the wars in iraq and afghanistan. there to will not involve american combat troops, fighting on foreign soil. this counter terrorism campaign will be waged to steady relentless effort to
6:36 am
take out isil where ever they are using our air power and our support for partners, forces on the grounds. >> so whether it was worry for american lives, possible terror attacks here in america or simply worrying about his legacy, the president really forced to do an about-face complete reversal in his actions and words back when running for president promising to wind down and end wars and bring all us soldiers home, then this summer calling the terrorist and syrian iraq minor players, the junior varsity, as late as two weeks ago, getting so much criticism for just looking, when we don't have a strategy jet for the terrorist thinks syria of the two american reporters were beheaded. last night he made it clear, we now do have a strategy and we are going after them. chris, kerry? >> also now 1500 americans on the ground in iraq, yet again. all right, steve keeley, live for us, thank you. 6:36. new jersey school district once again the thief -- the target of thieves who swiped
6:37 am
some ipads that were used to teach students. >> fox 29's lauren johnson live outside twin hill elementary school willingboro with this story. truck at that, lauren. >> chris, kids are the bick he is losers when something like this happens, when those ipads were snatched out of the classrooms here at this school. it makes it harder for students to learn, and harder for teachers to do their jobs. so, right now, police here in willingboro township are doing their job in trying to track down the thief. they were called to the twin hills elementary school tuesday after someone here noticed 12 ipads were gone. they believe the tablets were taken over the summer, $4,800 down the drain. this latest hit, wasn't nearly as bad as the hit the district took last year, 171 ipads, vanished in 2013. that case still cold and police didn't know if the ipads were taken from specific schools or warehouse. anyway apple devices cents cost pretty penny in the end the thefts totaled nearly
6:38 am
$75,000, parents, grandparents student, taxpayers, all have something to say about this. >> up we can do is pray that things change for the better. but, i do find that it is horrible that you are stealing from, you know, kids futures. >> i feel like it is taken away from them. we work hard. we pay our taxes. we try to provide better for our children. >> that's my taxpayer money, especially here in willingboro, we pay quite a bit. >> my taxes, i don't want to see them go like that. >> the kids are the ones that ends up losing in the longrun. so these taxpayers want answers. who did this and why. police hope to find out. right now, they aren't saying if they think the two are connected, too early to tell. but if i happen to have any information in about the ipad thefts, you are urged to call police right away. >> lauren live for just new jersey, thank you. 6:38 watch do you think about this?
6:39 am
ban on lip bamm. why student events to bring in doctor's note if they would like to use it. >> or kiss it good-bye. looks like kid just taking a selfie, right? what was going on around her at the time that will have awe little hey, jennar fuzz mike troober munny sling... awwwwww scram! i'm crust mike jubby roll bond chow gonna lean up an kiss bet. peas charty get town down.

6:40 am
6:41 am
>> transition day, we start off with a pattern that's humid and hot. sun starting to come up now. and we see some clouds, but
6:42 am
we'll also see enough sunshine to take us to the up ever 80s, no rain any more to the north, not much anyway, but little bit of pre-cold front rain coming through. here's your future cast, take you through the rest of the day, and, yes, there will be clouds ahead of the cold front. we will see our times every sunday shine and everything moves through north to southeast, starting 4:00 in the afternoon, norman west of the city see pop up showers, thunderstorms, then on and off throughout the rest of the evening rush hour. and everything should be out of here by about midnight tonight. there is chance of strong thunderstorms later on. right now it is 68 degrees, allentown, and 63 up in mount pocono, here in doylestown, 65. 68 degrees in chester. 70 degrees in bensalem. down in new jersey, 70 degrees in hammonton, 69 in millville. and in ocean city, new jersey, it is 73 degrees. and it feels sticky out there, casino every muggy, muggier
6:43 am
than yesterday, when we got to 82 degrees on wonderful wednesday. eighty is the average high. we are well above that today. as you look at the seven day forecast, more weather changes ahead. so we've got the late day thunderstorms today. then less humidity tomorrow after the cold front clears us. and then, weaker systems comes through with chance of some showers on saturday. so less than perfect day on saturday, but i think we're back to up a ten on sunday, with a high of 74 degrees, so it will feel delightful. sunny, mild monday, another chance of showers on tuesday. there is your seven day forecast, caitlin, what you got? >> sue, still following construction areas, 202 northbound between 401 and 29 in malvern, construction has one lane block, so expect those slow downs as the morning commute picks up. now headed toward 6:45 a.m. back to route one northbound between devereaux avenue and commonly road. road work has one lane block there. so you might see some delays. finally the talcony palmyra bridge, it is opening now, due to ship crossing the river, so
6:44 am
road closed to traffic. keep you posted when you can use the talcony palmyra again, chris? >> 44:00, 12:44 in vaux hannes berg, wait to go hear from judge to get averred in the murder trial of oscar pistorius. >> yes, fox 29 legal analyst, little bit of the latest from the courtroom, you've been listening in, the judge hasn't issued verdict yet. why exactly does this take so long? >> well, their process over there, when a judge decides the case, she will go over every single witness and talk about her assessment of all of the witness' testimony. there are 37 witnesses in this case. >> this could take a long, long time. she has given some hints so far where she going, but may than we don't even get verdict today. could be tomorrow. >> so the hint is that she may be leaning again ever against ruling it was premeditated mushedder? >> shy said just not enough facts.
6:45 am
so i think premeditated murder off the table. i've been saying this for machines anyhow, i didn't think, i followed this trial very closely, i didn't there was enough evidence for premeditated murder. looks like the judge has found that there is not enough evidence for premeditated murder. now still lesser charges that he could be convicted of, one is murder, not premeditated murder, but murder, the other culpable homicide. murder would be a sentence of up to 15 years, and cull recall homicide up to 15 years, so he could still spends a lot of time in jail if convicted of either one of those. >> steering away from premeditated murder because what she said in the courtroom today about where those screens may have eminated from, what other witness hads said about the screams? >> that's right. she felt that the screams, that the testimony of the witnesses said that the screams were from a woman, and that would be ms. steenkamp. she said that testimony was unreliable. she actually believes that the screams themselves came from oscar pistorius. now, that absolutely helps the
