7:32 am
roadways. take a lot at fog here in the background we would typically be able to see girard point double decker bridge. this is i-95 in the stadium area, link to my back here, to give you an idea. here's the 30 bypass socked in with fog leaving downingtown, heading in toward king have of prussia. here we go sue just showed us a live shot at the airport philly international. it says weather delays of one hour and 50 minutes, on arrivals and, of course that will turn in and departure delays as well. if you have a flight scheduled out of philadelphia you may want to check with the airline before we head down to the airport, chris and alex, back to you. >> man who shot two new york city police officers posted threats on social media, before the shooting that showed, hatred for police, on instagram ismaaiyl brinsley wrote quote i'm putting wings on pigs today, they take, one of ours, let's take two of their. >> his account has been suspended as police investigate this. this brings up an important
7:33 am
question can you you face criminal charges for what you write on social media. lets get to fox 29 legal analyst ken rottweiler. we tell people be careful what you put in social media but now it has a new meaning. >> if it is a true threat you can be arrested. there is a man in james, alanis here in federal prison in pennsylvania. he was arrested for making threats to his wife on facebook. they arrested him. sentenced to four years in jail. his case is now before the supreme court of the united states, on this issue of whether threats are actionable from the criminal standpoint he is from the red airing use. >> right. >> in this case chief justice john roberts say how is what anthony did on facebook any different from what rapper and eminem writes in his lyrics threatening specific people with death. >> right. they say it is then artistic expression but they are getting away from this. this will set a standard from what you can say on the
7:34 am
internet. fit is a true threat. if it is a true threat and person you threaten is reasonably threatened by that that is test that so far courts have applied in making decision whether you can be criminally prosecuted. what she's basically making an argument before the supreme court it noise the what the reese nal person would think it is whether i intended to be a threat. it is a ridiculous standard. subjective standoff. you have to get in the mine of the person who makes the threat this will be decided by supreme court and it will come down in like june. when it comes down it will set standard for everything that goes on the internet. >> it is a amazing, sometimes when you see things in social media tweeting about, facebook status, i mean to go through and you cannot tell, it is all about wording, and you are reading, how do you know fit is actually a true threat. and take it a step further, whether it is verbal or in writing by way of of being on line, how is the the law, protecting person who makes
7:35 am
the the threat at this point and reciprocal of that how do you prosecute words, where does the law fall on verbal. >> they will make a distinction here. i think they will say there is in distinction if you say verbally face to face or if you say it on the internet fit is a true threat and if reasonable person would believe they are threaten that will be criminally prosecuted. my question is, there was protesters and they were chanting what do we want bed cops what do we want it now. >> throughout the streets of new york city. >> is that protect streets or could those people shut down because those are threatening words. >> isn't the difference that is just a mass statement in general verse making a specific threat begins a specific person. >> that is very good. you should go to law school. >> very good, chris. >> i could get paid better. >> it does make a difference whether it is specific to a person or just generally to a group. but police could say by what they were saying by what that crowd were saying we were
7:36 am
threaten. now what happened is two police officers have been shot. there was in reason to be threaten. i think supreme court could make a ruling shut down speech such as that threatening speech. >> even with the suspect involve with the nypd officers that shooting fact that he posted stuff in social media and he said someone else, posted some things and they sent officers over to investigate to question him. when it comes to a judge signing off a warrant to go in someone's house is that enough to seeing something on instagram. >> as we go by first amendment was created, thomas jefferson and james madison never intended to protect speech where one person threatened another. that was not purpose of the first amendment. so now supreme court has taken a look at these cases. social media is a new animal, new way of communicating between people. supreme court will come down on the side of this is not protect speech if you threatened somebody whether it be in person or internet you will be criminally prosecuted.
7:37 am

no matter who you are, if you have type 2 diabetes, you know it can be a struggle to keep your a1c down. so imagine ... what if there was a new class of medicine that works differently to lower blood sugar? imagine loving your numbers. introducing once-daily invokana®. it's the first of a new kind of prescription medicine that's used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. invokana® is a once-daily pill that works around the clock to help lower a1c. here's how: the kidneys allow sugar to be absorbed back into the body. invokana® reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in ... and sends some sugar out through the process of urination. and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose some weight.
8:28 am
invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause some people to have loss of body water and salt. this may also cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections, urinary tract infections, changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol. do not take invokana® if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis or if allergic to invokana® or its ingredients. symptoms of allergic reaction may include rash, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing. if you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking invokana® and call your doctor right away or go to the nearest hospital. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems. using invokana® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase risk of low blood sugar.
