4:02 pm
this as president obama spoke to b.e.t. talking about black violence and what many americans believe they saw in the eric garner video. >> i think a lot of people who saw the eric garner video are troubled even if they haven't had that experience themselves, even if they're not african american or latino. i think there are a lot of well meaning people and a lot of police officers who looked at that and said that's a tragedy. we have to figure out how to bring an end to it to these tragedies. the value of peaceful protests, activism, organizing, it reminds society. >> live in berkeley, california. athena jones is in washington. i want to begin with deborah feyerick. protesters threatening on disrupt the game. the world will be watching with prince william and kate middleton in attendance.
4:03 pm
>> reporter: i'm just to the side of the camera. we're showing you this die-in. all these people who have come here. one of the organizes said let's show with it our bodies, not our voices. it is silent. they're laying down. these die-ins they've been having. they're here in the entire plaza of the barclays center. they're really surrounded by a groom of both supporters but also, a number of media folks here covering the royal visit. also, covering this protest. and really, it was within the last half-hour that all of these people began to show up. many from brooklyn. others from all five burroughs throughout new york city and they're here making sure everybody understands why they're protesting. we've heard a lot about police over excessive force, about violence. the same chants. i can't breathe. also, history will judge you and black lives matter. you can see some of the demonstrators now lying here quietly.
4:04 pm
>> pretty powerful to watch those die-ins. how this is continuing. i want to go to washington where parts of the capital are at a complete standstill. dupont circle. organizers saying they don't plan to have moo for four and a half hours because that's how long michael brown's body was on the street. what are you seeing? >> reporter: hi, erin. the protesters have changed up their plan a bit as they've been doing all night. originally. they were to meet in front of the white house and march about a mile to dupont circle and try to shut it down for four and a half hours. that changed when police shut down lafayette park in front of the white house them did, however, end up in dupont circle. instead of shutting it down for four and a half hours, they shut it down for four and a half minutes, lying down across the country in something called a
4:05 pm
die-in in the circle in order to stay there for four and a half minutes to represent the four and a half hours that michael brown's body lay in the street in ferguson, missouri. now we are on the move yet again. covering a large part of the city as we have the last few nights. i spoke to all kinds of people out here. i spoke with a young woman who said to me earlier, she's coming out here because this is how you make things change. protests themselves will not bring about change but they'll get the attention necessary of the people in power to try to change policies, change police tactics and make the justice system fairer. that's what the protesters want to see. that's why they're out here tonight and we'll keep following them. >> thank you. for the first time this week protests turned violent. police in california on alert after a groom of demonstrators in berkeley tried burn police cars, loot buildings, a number of police officers were injured in the confrontation.
4:06 pm
dan, what are police ready for? >> reporter: the protesters are expected to begin organizing in about one hour. police will be doing anything differently, they haven't told us. this is an example of the kind of thing we've seen over the past few days. these smashed atms along a major thoroughfair. why these particular protests have turned violent, we don't know. according to police, some splinter groups have broken off from the main demonstration. they've been intent on causing problems. berkeley's long and storied protests going back to the '60s and the vietnam war now has a new one to add to its chapter. the message of wanting to stand with protesters in ferguson, missouri and new york, is now being overshadowed by images of violence and looting. >> a guy with a crowbar comes in and starts looting.
4:07 pm
>> reporter: it began saturday night. police say an unruly crowd began throwing bricks at their officers who responded with tear gas. from there things got even uglier as some protesters began smashing out businesses. authorities hoped the violence would be over saturday but on sunday night the tension was even higher. the chaos even more widespread. a whole row of atms shattered. a sprint cell phone store looted and the crowd spilled over to nearby oakland as demonstrators tried to shut down a freeway. now authorities in berkeley are bracing for another long night. about a dozen people were arrested over the weekend as we've seen in other cities. it is just a small number of people that are really causing the main issues. the question is what will we be seeing tonight. and there's a real concern that we may have a repeat of what we saw the last few days.
4:08 pm
>> thank you very much. certainly all eyes will be on berkeley. "outfront," one of eric garner's children. and it is good to have you with us tonight. i'm so sorry about your father and i know you must feel blessed now that you've got his name. you have that always to share. i know you watched the video of what happened to him for the first time recently. just a few days ago. when you hear all these protests going on, it is still going on. how does it make you feel? >> it made me feel proud. i don't have to share this moment by myself and my family. we've been coming together. talking about it. but it is amazing how everybody is doing this for my father. and i appreciate it. >> it must be. i know the horrible reason for it. something that can make you so proud of him. your mother told a story about how she and your father at one point were harassed by police on staten island. we've been telling the country
4:09 pm
as we've reported on this, staten island, it is more white than a lot of places in new york. it stands out in that way. the president has talked a lot about young men your age and how he experienced a moment where because of the color of his skin, he felt people were judging him or were afraid of him. have you ever experienced that? >> one time being in a park late. putting up shots. cops came in and said get out before you get a summons. i don't think it is the color of the skin. they probably just following the rules. >> so i want to just talk about your age. you're 19, right? >> yes. >> i know you're in college right now. your age group though, and you being african-american, something the president has been talking a lot about. he has this new initiative. and he just gave an interview to b.e.t. about a meeting he had with some young men your age. and i wanted to play you a brief clip of what em. so you can hear it.
4:10 pm
>> when they described their own personal experiences of having been stopped for no reason, or having generated suspicion because they were in a community that supposedly, they didn't belong. my mind went back to what it was like for me when i was 17, 18, 20. >> sounds a little like the story you were just talking about. do you feel when you hear the president, that he knows what it is like to be you? >> yeah. he felt our pain, what we go through. we could be walking in a group and cops just stop us because of our color. >> do you think that he can do something about it? do you think things can change? >> yeah. that's why the protests. protesters out there now. no matter what color they are. >> what is one thing, i go back to your name that you share your father's name. one thing would you want us to know about your dad.
4:11 pm
everyone watching the show has seen that videoful it is imprinltd on everybody's mind. that's not what you want people to remember about your dad probably. what do you want people to know? >> that he was a lofving, carin father. he's always support his kids. he's been in my whole life since i was a young kid. he supported my dream. and he was looking forward to watching me play college ball this year. >> thank you for coming in and talking to us. next, a black 12-year-old with a toy gun killed by a white police officer. his family wants the officer charged without a grand jury. there's actually video of what happened in this case too. and we have that for you. plus, russell simmons speaks to "outfront" about race and police violence. is the white house doing too little too late? russell simmons will be my guest exclusively. and the failure to talk to the

4:15 pm
you're looking at pictures of protests outside brooklyn, new york in the barclays center. that's where an nabl game is going to ham. these folks staging a die-in a few moments, the nba game will begin. obviously, all attention and eyes are on this. you have kate middleton and prince william going to be attending this game so you have more and more protests gathering
4:16 pm
outside barclays central in brooklyn, new york. tonight the mother of a 12-year-old black boy gunned down by a white policeman. speaking out publicly for the first time. the mother saying she was tlenl with arrest when she tried to rush to her son's aid when he was dying on the floor. he was playing with a toy gun in the park. you see police officers arrive on the scene. two seconds later, two seconds later, they shot the 12-year-old boy dead. martin savage is "outfront." >> reporter: at a news conference, the mother of the 12-year-old shot and killed by cleveland police was asked what she wants. >> i'm actually looking for a conviction. >> reporter: speaking publicly for the first time, she said as her son tamir lay dying, she try desperately to get to him only to be stopped by police. >> as i was trying to get through to my son, flis told me to calm down or they will put me in the back of a police car.
4:17 pm
and so of course i calmed down. >> reporter: rice says police already hand cuffed and detained a 14-year-old daughter who also had tried to reach her brother. police have declined to comment on the allegations. how police acted after last night's shooting only compounded their pain and suffering over the loss of their son who was shot carrying a toy gun in a public park just yards from his home. a 911 call reported someone with a gun in the park. that they believed the gun was probably fake. but the fake part appears to have been left out of police communications to the responding officers. the gun was plastic. rice was black. the officer who shot him is white. and in light of grand jury decisions not to indict officers in missouri and new york, the family's new attorney, ben crump says there are concerns here. >> the family is very
4:18 pm
distrustful whether local authorities will endiet a police officer even though it is very clear, very transparent that several things were done inappropriately. >> reporter: the tragedy is all captured on security cam video at the park. it shows the 12-year-old by himself on a snowy day playing with and pointing the gun. then a police car speeds up within feet of rice and within seconds, two officers jump out. and the closest to rice opens fire, hitting it at least once. he died the following day. many are shocked at how quickly it all hams. and say police instead of de-escalating, intensified it. critics say it is another case of police acting too aggressively, too fast, resulting in a tragedy all too familiar. >> the authorities say the two officers involved are currently on paid administrative leave. that's why the cleveland police
4:19 pm
investigation. then it is expected to be handed over to the prosecutor's office and eventually a grand jury. it should be pointed out the father of one of the officers who open fire. his son didn't know the boy was only 12 and didn't know the toy was fake. critics said had they slowed their response and been more careful, they would have known both. >> david, let me start with you and make sure our viewers understand your story. when you were a cop, you wugs shot and killed a black suspect who was yielding a knife. you tried to wrestle it away. the encounter between tamir rice and the police officer was caught on video. the officer arrives and the boy gets shot. that hams within two seconds. did the police shoot too soon? because tamir rice was black?
4:20 pm
>> not at all. police officers all around the country are trained. there is not a single academy, not a single in-service training block that tells officers, if you are 10 or 12 feet away from someone who is reaching into a waist band for a gun to wait. you don't have a choice. your choice is to wait, maybe they'll throw the gun on the ground. i've had four people look me in the eye from 12 feet away. fortunately each time i had cover. i didn't have to shoot. people do that. and police officers are trained, you can't afford to way. if someone goes like that with the gun or come up and shoots, you're dead. the problem here, and the correct way to look at this, is they never should have been so close. that is the critical thing here. and it doesn't make sense to me that we want to prosecute a police officer whose partner made a critical tactical error by driving in so close. what they should have done, the senior officer driving the vehicle should have done, stay back behind cover. find a place, 20, 30, 40 yards
4:21 pm
away. locate a decent point of cover. stop. then we have time. then we have space to make a much better decision to maybe identify this individual as a young child. to maybe identify this not as a gun. the critical mistake was not the decision to shoot. the critical mistake was made seconds before that when the officer decided not to stop at a safe distance. >> what's interesting, what david is raising is this issue, they didn't even know how old the child was. that them they didn't even know he was only 12 years old this happened so fast. they weren't even able to evaluate his age. do you think that would have happened, if any of this would have happened if he was 12 years old and was white? >> you know, it is so hard to know in these situations and circumstances. a couple things are important. there is a lot of data that shows people tend to look at young african-american men as older than they are, bigger than they are and more dangerous than they are. that's not just police officers. you're seeing more and more data showing this unconscious bias
4:22 pm
against young black men. that's why you see people saying black lives matter, black lives matter. trying to raise this issue up. i think that, it is hard for me to imagine in my own mind. you have a little white guy playing with a gun in the park, that police would respond exactly the same way. maybe the cops would. maybe they wouldn't. a bigger issue is what happens now? we have to move from protest to policy. i do not trust any longer prosecutors who work the police every day on prosecute their own co-workers anymore. i think it is important. when the mom says she wants an independent investigation, she is not wrong for her concern. >> so paul, let me bring you in on that. you have benjamin crump, a face known to all our viewers. he is representing the family. the name says forget it. we want to charge these guys. we don't want a grand jury. we've heard the before. prosecutors sometimes have this discretion. should it happen? >> they don't have that
4:23 pm
discretion in ohio. >> so they couldn't even if they want to. no. a grand jury has to look at the case eventually. the cop could be arrested pending the investigation to the grand jury but you can only proceed with a felony by grand jury indictment or if the com waves the grand jury present. . it is different than in missouri. >> why would the com do that? >> he won't do that. he will want to appear before the grand jury and tell his side of the story. >> which includes that he didn't know it was a fake gun. >> what crime will he be charged with? he was presented with every single police officer's worst nightmare. an individual who is in the process of pulling a gun on him. and then he has an even worse nightmare. it is a kid and the gun is not real. and van was talking about the implicit bias research. one of the fascinating thing, van is aware of this. they flash images of guns and other things. this would have been an implicit bias study, a shoot scenario. an individual is holding a firearm. the officer had no choice other
4:24 pm
than to risk his life. police officers cannot be expected -- >> wait. >> to sit back when a gun is being drawn them can't. >> believe it or not -- >> we might agree on something. >> just one thing. on the special prosecutor issue as opposed to having the local prosecutor handle the case. i was at an event the other night with the new african-american district attorney of brooklyn who is kind of astonished that people want to eliminate his job investigating cases like this. and i think african-americans are achieving political power across america. so be careful what you wish for with these special prosecutors. the governor appoints somebody who has no connection to the city. i think we should see how this case turns out before we make that decision. >> you were going to respond to david. >> a couple things. first you talk about the african-american d.a. in brooklyn. i believe the african-american public advocate for the whole state of new york is calling for special prosecutors. these are situations where it is
4:25 pm
very difficult for a prosecutor to turn around and try to put in prison someone they have to work we ever day. the good thing about d.a.s, they're mostly elected. the bad thing is they often have to get the union to give them money and endorsement. that's a conflict of interest. we actually agree that this was a terrible situation for the police to be put, for the officer to be put in. at the same time there is a pattern and a practice now of overaggressive law enforcement when it comes, when you see an african-american. an overaggressive pattern now. that leads to tragedy. we have to back up on. this case in particular we'll see what happens. i think everybody has to take a big stem back. it is hard for me to imagine a little white boy in a park playing with a gun and having an officer making a decision to drive up on him and then have the other officer open fire. it could happen but it is hard to imagine. it has not been happening in this country the way we see with the black kids. >> can i jump in for a second?
4:26 pm
>> yes, of course. >> it has happened unfortunately where young white kids and young hispanic kids and kids of all colors have been shot because police officers final themselves in these difficult positions. sometime there's nothing a police officer can do. sometimes there is. in this situation in cleveland, the tragedy could have been pre vented and i agree. we need to teach police officers how to be more tactically sound and to create distance when they have opportunities to do so. >> thanks to all of you. more athletes wearing i can't breathe on their shirt. we'll talk to russell simmons next about his call for action. plus, two hostages killed by their captors. what blew s.e.a.l. team 6's cover?

4:29 pm
we're for an opens you internet for all.sing.
4:30 pm
we're for creating more innovation and competition. we're for net neutrality protection. now, here's some news you may find even more surprising. we're comcast. the only isp legally bound by full net neutrality rules. news. you are looking at live pictures of a huge crowd of protesters outside brooklyn's barclays center. protests have spread inside the arena. a number players including lebron james wearing i can't breathe t-shirts. part of the reason there's so much attention on this is that prince william and kate
4:31 pm
middleton, the duke and duchess of windsor are actually there. they are in new york right now. deborah feyerick right now, it is outside and now inside the stadium as well as you have lebron wearing the shirt. >> reporter: absolutely. this crowd is a lot bigger. they did a die-in a little while ago in front of barclays central. now they're taking a big change. they're marching around. a person from rhode island, another from tennessee, all of them coming out because they say they're the ones speaking for eric garner and michael brown. they have come here and they want to make sure everybody here hears their message. and hopefully they say it might change. that the system might change. there are a lot of harsh words against police officers. you can see there is a police presence here. we saw about 100 police officers. they've set up a perimeter.
4:32 pm
they're allowing this to ham, they're allowing it to go down very peacefully. these demonstrators, we want to keep this in mind. they are angry, they are upset. for the most part, they are doing this very peacefully to make sure the message gets out. >> all right. thank you. >> and lebron james who is wearing that shirt joins a growing list of major pro athletes who are voicing their outrage over grand jury decisions not to indict. now in the deaths of eric garner and michael brown. kyung lah is "outfront." >> reporter: the rallying cry and the protests across the country. demonstrators chanting eric garner's last words. but it was a silent shout from chicago bulls player derek rose wearing the words, i can't breathe, on his shirt in pre game warm-ups. a potent message from the 2011 mvp. >> this is a place for
4:33 pm
professional athletes to weigh in on this. >> i can careless who else weighs in. usually professional athletes ten to stay away from this but i felt i had to do something about it. >> reporter: and he is not the only professional athlete. >> he gets away -- >> reporter: in the nfl, washington redskins defensive lineman chris baker making the hands up don't shoot gesture. reggie bush wore an i can't breathe shirt before the game. there's been virtually no back lash. a big difference from the reaction to the hands of gesture by the st. louis rams. criticism from police groups to even some fans who burned rams merchandise this weekend. >> burn baby burn. >> reporter: in this case, the chicago bulls head coach supported and continues to support the display. >> he has something to say, i think it is a great message. it is about equality and justice for everybody. >> reporter: the world has seen
4:34 pm
this this before. this potent image in the 1968 olympics, the black power salute in the midst of the movement. it is these very visible moments that can help shape a national conversation. >> can sports figures make a big difference in our discourse? >> yeah. they're kind of, they're role models and a lot of people follow what they do. that's his platform. that's derek rose's platform. his basketball court is where he does his work and where he is the most visible. that's the time if you're going to do it, to do it. >> reporter: let's take a look at some of the other players who are also getting in on this. all the players that you've seen so far have been yesterday, take a look at what's happening tonight inside that cleveland cavaliers versus the brooklyn nets game. first we have lebron james. he is wearing a very similar shirt to what derrick rose wore yesterday. it also says i can't breathe. then his teammate kyrie irving
4:35 pm
also wearing that shirt. we asked rose what he thought about all of this? emhe simply finds it encouraging that someone like lebron james would pick up this movement. >> thank you very much. lebron james will be seen around the world doing this. and joining me now, the co-founder, of global, russell simmons. i saw you retweet a picture of derrick rose wearing that warm-up shirt. this is something i know you support. you believe these athletes are in the right to do this. and you want more of them to do it. >> what i see is the end of this. there will be commands, a lot of thought leaders a are activists, who are visible in the streets today, and they are doing an excellent job. and there are conscious athletes like lebron who i campaigned with for the president when he was only a junior in college.
4:36 pm
so he has always been aware of the power of his celebrity. but there are many people who haven't even begun to weigh in and want to. from miley cyrus, who has 25 million instagram followers, to the conscious rapper to all of the people who have the big followings. they haven't even begun. on wednesday, we're going to ask for those indictments and the list of other achievable demands. so america has not seen protests like those that are coming if justice doesn't start to come down. >> so let me ask you about those indictments. i want to ask but the demands. the attorney general eric holder was out today. a lot of americans are frustrated with this. they say look, the justice department is at the trayvon martin case now, looking at the eric garner case and we keep being told, it is almost impossible to get a charge.
4:37 pm
>> do you know that over 150,000 cases came before the grand jury and only 11 cases, they didn't come back with indictments? that it is like lightning striking the black community over and over and over again. so we have demands. of course police sensitivity training is important. of course we have results from when you wear a camera 95% of the incidents go away so police should have cameras. and of course, we know that police cannot police themselves. and we know certain things. and these things are simple demands that we are going to achieve results on. >> what do you think when you see -- >> i want to say we have not begun to engage the young leaders who are waiting to go to work. >> what do you think when you see this on tape?
4:38 pm
eric garner, there was a camera. and i'm not saying cameras won't work. i'm just saying there was a camera. what does that make you think? >> that means special oversight committees. that we shouldn't leave it to the d.a.s who work the police. to police the police. it is impossible. so this injustice and others that are happening around the country and have been happening, although under the public radar, they have been happening, this is something that we can correct. and we will correct it. and you haven't seen young people like this in two generations and they haven't even begun. >> so you don't feel defeated by the fact this happened again and again and the protests happened and then there is another case and they start again. >> we're going to get indictments now. because again, america hasn't seen what's coming. and i know it. i've seen it happen. you know, i have to tell you a funny story. we wrote a letter to the
4:39 pm
president and to eric holder. and it was signed by the naacp and the urban league. and lots of rabbis and reverend jackson and sharpton and the drug policy alliance and brad pitt signed it. we sent it to the president and it made some news. it was about the industrial complex's chokehold on the black community. and first time nonviolent offenders and it was something he could have done when he first walked into office and he didn't do -- >> until justin bieber -- >> until he tweeted out. it is good that the conscious individuals are spreading. when it goes pop. when people understand the injustice. they're all going to fight for justice. and that will change this system. and the demands that we make, which will be simple, will be
4:40 pm

mixed comments and mixed thoughts. >> reporter: after months of being held by al qaeda in yemen, his family thought he would be free within hours. u.s. officials say however, after seeing this video of american hostage luke sommers late last week, the penn concluded sommers was in imminent danger of being killed. the u.s. scrambled for a last-minute rescue. by thursday, the u.s. had satellite images of the compound where sommers was being held. by mid morning friday, the mission was a go. it would not succeed in the end. >> the president does not at all regret ordering this mission. to try to rescue mr. sommers. >> the intelligence showed an urgency to get in or they were going to kill this american hostage any way. >> reporter: it was the dead of night in yemen. u.s. officials say b-22 aircraft raced to a remote region in eastern yemen.
4:46 pm
about 30 commandos from s.e.a.l. team 6 and combat medics began hiking to the xounl where lukesomers and south african pierre corky were being held. just yards from the target, dogs began barking. the u.s. says the s.e.a.l.s were spotted. a firefight erupt. with aircraft keeping watch, the s.e.a.l.s battled the terrorists. u.s. officials say one terrorist ran back into the compounds, shooting sommers and corky. the u.s. did not know. it was a desperate 30 minutes on the ground. the medics tried to stabilize both critically wounded men them called for the b-22s to than as close as possible. one hostage died on the aircraft. the other back on board a nearby navy ship. some in american hostage luke sommers' family said they wishld more had been done earlier to get him out of yemen and they

that's the way i look at life. especially now that i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but wondered if i kept digging, could i come up with something better. my doctor told me about eliquis... for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk
4:58 pm
if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.
