7:33 am
six. >> most severe driver was the van driver. >> which one is that. >> which one, he is an african-american, of the three there. >> three african-americans, one female and man in the right-hand corner, he is from south jersey. >> yeah, that is right. >> there are other charges of involuntary manslaughter, assault and false imprisonment. thing that is most interesting is charge of second degree murder. the the prosecutor is saying that the severed spine was caused by the van ride. there was this dispute that it happened before he got in the van or after he got in the van. well, now it looks like she has been determine that it happened while he was inside the van because of the charge of the second degree murder. >> when she did her speech she didn't hint at a rough ride being the cause of it. >> she cannot talk about that. >> he didn't go that far but that is what they are saying. now they are examining that ride. they are looking at whether there were potholes, drove erratically. when you are in that van and not seat belted and your arms
7:34 am
and legs are shackles and the van driver is making it a rough ride you are banging against the walls in the van, and although forensic pathologist says that is not enough to sever your spine. your spinal collies covered by bone. doctor mike will tell but that. it is hard to sever that spine. >> did they place him face down. >> that is what they said. >> if you slam on the breaks don't you go headfirst in the in metal wall. >> i guess if you jammed your head hard enough and fast enough speed and that compresses your spine. they tell us that is enough to sever the spine, i don't know. >> also the the matter of arrest. they failed to establish a probable cause for doing that. >> well, yeah, you mean originally when they got him. >> well, you are absolutely right about that. the the police officers were doing bike patrol and riding around and freddie gray, came around and made eye contact.
7:35 am
freddie gray then started to run. police chased him. there was no probable cause. constitutionally if i see a policeman i can start running. that doesn't mean there is probable cause to arrest me. we went and arrested him and there was no probable cause. the prosecutor you are right has said there is no probable cause to arrest freddie gray, therefore, they are calling that false imprisonment. >> how do you prove any of this surveillance cameras. >> i don't think there are surveillance cameras. interesting, there was a surveillance camera in there, and it didn't work. there was a surveillance camera in the van but it didn't work at the time it wasn't working and in surveillance cameras when at rest happened. surveillance camera occurs after he is already shackled. >> it would be in the medical examiner's report. >> a lot of the expert testimony. what you just said i haven't really heard, he is face down, he is going fast and he moves forward and he crashes, into the metal part of the van
7:36 am
and that severs his spine. you could be a forensic pennsylvania atheologies mike. >> wouldn't it still be hard. >> i think it is very hard. preliminary hearing may 27th to see whether there is probable cause. after that there will be trial. it will be a very interesting trial. expert testimony will play a big part in this trial. >> we will talk bit for a long time. >> we will protest until the verdict. verdict won't be until next year. >> it the depend on how fast trial goes and the police officers and how fast process goes but we are not talking about anything real quickly. thanks, ken. with all of these negative stories about police we want to focus on how local officers are making positive impact on our communities. how camden county police department is helping tea crease, violent crime. maybe they should be listening to baltimore. thinking about going with flowers for moth dares lets get to jen and show us how to make a unique arrangement. >> that is good. >> we will talk about that in

7:50 am
maybe they can pick someone up, but that is a weekness good what about hicks. >> interesting because they have a gluttony of offensive lineman. it would seem, although, they apparently tried to get rid of michael kendricks and were unable to do that. >> now they have a glut at inside linebackers, guys that play, there are a few you that can play inside and out, one being brad jones whom they just sign from the packers but this hicks kiddies another demeco ryans type player, leader on the field which chip kelly loves. >> i was hoping they were going to pick up michael kendricks brother. >> eric from ucla. >> he went in the second round and they got rowe. it is interesting because hicks was a lot of people thought went way too early and chip may have reached on him. >> what grade do you give chip now that it is all over. >> i would give it a b, i like the rowe pick a lot. it looks like he will step n agholor, he will be a jeremy maclin type player.

8:06 am
bridge gate case didn't get the the final report maybe but they did get report everybody was waiting for and it is not naming chris christie as doing anything illegal at all but it did name two of his top former advisors and appoint ease bill barone who led new jersey factions of the port authority of new york and new jersey and bridget ann kelly, who was his deputy chief of staff, here at the state house. both together facing nine counts and both facing a judge this morning in three hours. >> i had made the statement on behalf of mr. wildstein in january of 2013 that mr. christie knew of the lane closures while they were occurring and evidence exist to establish that. >> certainly nothing came out so far from the official documents. now the defense lawyer is talking like a defense lawyer there and that is his prerogative and duty but in fact, it could have been a bad day for mr. christie and it
8:07 am
wasn't. >> indictment alleges and mr. wildstein admitted that he, barron and kelly executed the plan to suddenly and without warning drastically reduce number of access lanes to the bridge, knowing full well and intending that this maneuver would grid lock fort lee. >> i never ordered, or conspired, with david wildstein to close or realign lanes of the bridge for any reason, much less for retribution. >> reporter: that is bridget kelly saying she had nothing to do with it and wasn't the only one in the christie administration that knew anything about it but she was famous for starting this whole investigation and famous for that e-mail time for some traffic problems in fort lee. well, if you remember back 14 months ago when the new york law firm that the governor hired as much taxpayer expense to do a fact finding report, many called it a whitewash and one huge glaring difference between what, and the the federal indictment that is bill barone, the the four
8:08 am
three-year old employee on that port authority was not even said, in that first report, involved in the bridge closings scandal. we know the indictment says not only was he fully involved but it was him that had idea lets wait until first day of school to close those lanes to have maximum impact and maximum hardship on those kid stuck on the bus, both to and from school, late from school, getting there and late getting home from school as well. barone was making $290,000 as the new jersey leader on the port authority. that is about $115,000 more than the governor. what will come out today? well, maybe more dirt will fly in newark like it is flying around the state house. we will see what everybody says after court or in court. >> school kids, an emergency personnel could not get through. well, it is not funny at all but do you mind if we go back to friday. i thought there was one funny aspect of this whole bridge gate thing.

8:17 am
have started to enhance the communication and trust that we have with the people living in the city. >> this was your idea, when you first introduced it not a lot of people believed in it. >> board of freeholders took a beating from different organizations but under chief thompson's leadership our officers have become partners with the residents of the city. as a result there has been drastic changes. we have a long way to go but we are moving in the right direction and this city is transform into one of the brightest spots as far as urban redevelopment in the nation. >> reporter: so much so you have media coming from all over the the country to come see what you are doing here compliments to you and the police success. >> it is attributable to the men and women on the street every day doing the the work. our public safety gains are as much of a credit to the community. we have made streets safer not by polarizing and military icing neighborhoods but by enhancing the dialogue we have with the people that live in these communities. they are leaving their homes.
