5:01 am
pa pat showed no concern for the well being of sandusky's victims until after sandusky's arrest. >> reporter: freeh also talked about a culture of secrecy at the university going back to at least 1998. freeh's report found even back then joe paterno and others knew they had a problem with jerry sandusky and, for example, they even pointed to a note written by then vice president gary schultz after an incident involving two boys and jerry sandusky in which he wrote is this the opening. pandora's box? are there other children? now attorneys for graham spanier have not responded and lawyers for -- >> well be getting back to susan

that this job was just about getting the policy right. and that's important. but the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the american people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times. >> while his opponent mitt romney was quick to jump on the president's remarks suggesting that he is out of touch if he quote believes that millions of americans have lost their homes, their jobs and livelihood because he just failed to tell a good story. all right. listen up to this. las vegas police are used to getting weird calls but even this one shocked them. a report that two chimps were on the loose and attacking cars. that's right. police say the chimps escaped from a nearby home. they were pets. authorities eventually were

i'm alina cho. hey, ashley good morning. >> i'm ashleigh banfield. so great to have you. great to see you this early morning. fierce short fallout. outrage. heating thunder morning with a new release of a scathing penn state report. former fbi director lewis freeh is accusing four top officials of penn state including former coach joe paterno of empowering convicted child sex offender jerry sandusky. >> the most powerful men at penn state ed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who sandusky victimized. mr. spanier, schultz, paterno and curley never demonstrated through actions or words any concern for the safety and well being of sandusky's victims until after sandusky's arrest. >> so you can pretty much cue the backlash now. there are calls for the campus statue of joe paterno to be
5:29 am
taken down and done away with. in the meantime the former athletic director tim curley and former vice president of the university gary schultz are facing criminal perjury charges among others and as of now the former president graham spanier is facing no charges but could that change with this new report? our cnn legal analyst sunny hostin is here with the break down. i don't know where to begin. when i read through this report my jaw dropped. i did not expect to see this tone in a report that was commissioned by the university itself. >> yeah. i think everyone was pretty surprised especially because lewis freeh while the fbi director and former federal judge he didn't have subpoena power. many people felt how much information is he really going to get. he got so much information, ashley, as we all know, 257 page report and included in that report were bombshell emails
5:30 am
that indicate this pyramid of power these four men seemingly concealed jerry sandusky's behavior. seemingly knew about this behavior as early as 1998, found out about it again in 2001 and chose not the report. >> that's critical that you mentioned that because a lot of people have heard from the other side and heard from joe paterno's family and they suggest look this was a man in his 80s who heretofore have never heard of man on man sex and not something he thought could possibly exist so give him a break. but when you say 1998 and there was an accusation from a mother and it was investigated, it did not bear out, just three years later another incident that mir record, i mean a shower incident with a boy, you think their antenna should have been way higher and lewis freeh. >> lewis freeh said in the press conference there were red flags all over the place. i was a federal prosecutor trying child sex crimes and the red flags were rampant.
5:31 am
educators do have that duty to report. it's very surprising having found out something in 1998 after hearing about it again in 2001 even joe paterno would not have done something. i think what's also very striking is it appears initially the four men decided yes this is something we need to report not only to the school but child services. after meeting with joe paterno the tone changed. they decided a more humane way. >> humane for who? for jerry sandusky. no humanity whatsoever for the children. particularly the victim in the 2001 shower incident that was discussed at length but no one suggested maybe we should find this boy and find out from him what happened and find out if he's okay. >> exactly. >> nothing. >> that sort of is why this almost an indictment, not a criminal indictment but in the
5:32 am
court of opinion people are saying come on. >> come on. >> i think the real question on everyone's mind we know curley and schultz have been charged with failing to report as well as perjury. joe paterno no longer with us. he hasn't been charged of course. >> what about spanier. >> what about graham spanier. >> did your antenna go up when you read the report and saw the indictment by lewis freeh. i say it loosely not a criminal indictment just a scathing review. do you think given what he said that the authorities will look far more closely at this report while they are doing their parallel assessment of this and perhaps charge him as well? >> think it's a real possibility because especially again the government has subpoena power. so i can only assume and i suspect that the government has even more information than lewis freeh. >> quickly i want to put up a comment regarding tim curley because clearly with criminal charges bearing down they wanted to respond to this and they said
5:33 am
since the attorney general's office prevented lewis freeh and his team access to critical witnesses with full knowledge of all of the facts the freeh report is not fair, full, accurate or complete. clearly they couldn't talk to these two men who were charged because they got their fifth amendment right and couldn't talk to some of the people -- >> like mike mcqueary. >> they didn't have access to the grand jury material. >> the government didn't want them to interview certain witnesses. they didn't want their investigation to be compromised. sandusky was the target of their consolidation. main target. 45 counts he was convicted of. although they didn't get some of the information, lewis freeh got significant amount. >> last night it was said pardon me for the image i'm about to create, penn state better get
5:34 am
wheelbarrows ready for the money they have to pay out. >> bottom line it's not a question of whether or not penn state will settle with these victims it's a question of how much. >> and how soon. sunny hostin come back next hour. alina? >> thank you. the family of a florida teen who lost half his right arm in an alligator attack is now asking for help to buy him a prosthesis. caleb suffered the attack on monday while swimming in a river in fort myers and here's the 911 call from one of his friends. >> hello. >> yes. 911. what's your emergency. >> yes, ma'am. a gator just got my friend. he's in the water. >> doctors tried to save his arm. it wasn't possible. he's listed in good condition. keeping a close eye on the wound to make sure it doesn't get infected. a landslide taking out three homes and knocking trees down

the pride of the usa decked out in uniforms made in china.
5:58 am
one lawmaker says we should take them and burn them, burn them all. widespread short fallout from the penn state report with top school officials accused of a child sex abuse cover-up but could more criminal charges be following next? and catch him if you can, police on the hunt for this guy. the man on a motorcycle filming himself doing over 180 miles per hour in traffic. no joke, not a doctored video, that's just him and he's speeding. welcome back to "early start." nice to have you with us. 6:00 a.m. in the east. some fierce new outrage over the united states olympic teams uniforms, one calling for the uniforms to be burned in a bonfire, all of this why? because the red white and blue ensemble is entirely made in china.
5:59 am
who would be best to cover this story but alina cho. i think people were surprised by this. >> everything in the uniform, incredibly from the beret to the blazer to the shoes to this shirt here were made in china, made by american designer ralph lauren and just for the opening and closing ceremonies, i had an opportunity to look at the olympic gear with david lauren, ralph's son and executive vice president of the company. he said they are focused on making olympians look good. >> when you're meeting athletes and they are walking in the first olympics, many have never worn a tie or jacket or been on television before. we want the american team and athletes to really look like ambassadors. >> but the chinese manufacturing has fueled a bipartisan backlash on capitol hill. if you look closely at the tag, you do see very clearly at the
6:00 am
bottom, made in china. senator gill brand and steve israel sent a letter asking if the committee only source uniforms from the united states in the future. but is that possible? and brown requested they get their uniforms from hugo boss which has a factory in his state of ohio. senator harry reid wanted to destroy the uniforms. >> i am so upset that i think the olympic committee should be ashamed of themselves and embarrassed and take all of the uniforms and pull them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again. >> the designer la pour, a big supporter of keeping nufact urmanufacturing jobs in the unid states, especially here in the garment district in new york is frustrated for a different reason. she says it is a missed opportunity. >> it's very disturbing because
6:01 am
it completely could have been manufactured here in the united states in new york city or in any other city where there's factories that still exist. we've been trying to raise aware nsz and trying to convince designers to move work back to the shores and start onshoring. this would have been the perfect opportunity. >> i'll be speaking to nannette lepore later. unlike most olympic teams around the world, the u.s. olympic team is privately funded and we are grateful for the support of our sponsors. we're proud of our partnership with ralph lauren and excited to watch america's finest athletes compete at the upcoming games in london. ralph lauren, we have reached out for comment but haven't heard anything just yet, only they are not going to release a statement officially. >> this sounds very familiar, i feel i have heard this story
6:02 am
before. am i wrong? >> no, you're absolutely right. in fact, back in 2008 you'll recall this isn't the first time ralph lauren outfitted team usa. they did for the opening and closing ceremonies for beijing and that time too the uniforms were made in china. before that, american athletes walked into the olympics in clothing from canadian company roots, a company that you're familiar with. >> not a canadian company. >> they designed a beret that became the signature souvenir in salt lake city and that was made in canada. >> canadian athletes used to wear those too, the roots clothing. here's the question, a lot of people in congress are saying these uniforms should be made in the united states, we should burn them. can it be done in a month? we're going to talk about that. the other thing to keep in mind
6:03 am
too, ralph lauren, i did speak to somebody inside the company. we do the opening and closing ceremonies and do not do the competing wear. but is it okay for not winning a medal but okay for the opening and closele certificaemonceremo. >> tha a valid point. this is an international story because a lot of companies are facing the same story we're doing in america today, new zealand and spain might have been one. >> manufactured in other countries as well. it's a global -- it's a big global party, isn't it. >> you're right. >> thank you. we have a developing story we want to get you up to date on. investigators saying they did not find any explosives on board a delta plane that returned to kennedy airport in new york because of a security scare. it was 126 and turned around an
6:04 am
hour into its fly enroute to spain. the passengers were told to get off the plane while the bomb squad got on the plane and started to investigate and brought with them their bomb sniffing dogs too. the plane was turned around after a passenger found drinking straws that had wires stuffed inside them and found that in the bathroom. >> internet security experts shocked by a huge breach at yahoo! more than 440,000 e-mail addresses and passwords hacked and exposed yesterday. experts say yahoo! failed to take the most basic precautions to protect the information. they are only confirming the breach but will not comment on its security. six minutes past 6:00, there's shock and sadness and not to mention shame this morning at penn state. a blistering -- no other way to describe this, blistering report by the former fbi director leaving the school's reputation and legendary coach's legacy
6:05 am
permanently stained. investigators concluding that joe paterno and top university officials actually empowered child predator jerry sandusky. the outrage is spreading so quickly there are calls to tear down this iconic statue of joe paterno outside beaver stadium. then there's the looming question, could more criminal charges be looming for the people who are named in the report. cnn's national correspondent susan candiotti is live in philadelphia. this is so incredibly far reaching, this university. listen, it's an understatement to say that the university is reeling, but it's hard to imagine what they are doing in the face of potential incredible litigation because of all of this. >> reporter: they know they have vast problems ahead, ashleigh, for sure. it is a scathing assessment of what went wrong and how jerry sandusky was able to rape and molest so many children for so
6:06 am
many years. louis freeh's report finding that officials were part of a culture of secretty guilt around protecting penn state's image and football program. >> our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of sandusky's child victims by the most senior leaders at penn state. the most powerful men at penn state failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who sandusky victimized. mr. spanier, schultz paterno and curley, never demonstrated any concern for sandusky's victims until after sandusky's arrest.
6:07 am
>> reporter: louis freeh also finding paterno new about problems going back to 1988 and new e-mails about that, including and despite testimony from joe paterno before a grand jury that he knew nothing about it. including an interview he gave to the weap"washington post" th same post just before he died. louis freeh presenting new e-mails including one from tim curley saying that joe paterno wants to know where things stand with it. and he also presented, we want to show you a handwritten note. kind of hard to make out but it was written by vice president schultz after the 1998 incident saying that, this the opening of pan dora's box. are there other children? now lawyers representing president graham spanier, no comment, attorneys for schultz and curley saying that freeh's report is totally incomplete and
6:08 am
wait until we get to the trial. they are charged with perjury, lying to a grand jury and failing to report. they say their clients will be vindicated. >> this is what it is, it is evidence. it may not be the entire picture of evidence and the criminal investigation has the subpoena power to get more of that. while that is playing out, what is the family of joe paterno saying about all of this? >> reporter: well, ashleigh, they are continuing to defend joe paterno saying he was not a perfect man but they continue to deny he had the big picture -- that he knew about everything that was going on, they say it just isn't true. listen. >> the thing i think that's important for everybody to understand, this report is by no means the end of all things that are going to come out. so we'll have more people on the record and theirs voices that
6:09 am
were not heard and that will clarify some of these things. >> reporter: now, there is fallout from some of paterno's staunchest defenders including phil knight, chairman of the board of nike. after freeh's report came out yesterday and -- and he got a standing ovation during a memorial service on campus after joe paterno died, and after the freeh report came out, he announced he was removing paterno's name from a child care center at the nike corporate campus in oregon, ashleigh. >> i don't think that's going to come as a surprise to a lot of people. and you're right, there's still more information that needs to come out but the information we have so far is what we like to say in the world of law, a bad set of facts. susan, thank you. las vegas police are used to getting weird calls but this one even shocked them. a report that two chimps were on the loose and attacking cars.
6:10 am
police say the chimpanzees escaped from a nearby home, they were pets, forced to shoot and kill one, the authorities and tranquilize the other. that chimp was returned to the other but authorities are looking into whether the person is even licensed to have chimps as pets. and coming up at 6:50 this morning, jeff corwin will join us, he has some insight into the behavior of chimp and wildlife as pets, coming up at 6:50 eastern time. meanwhile, get a lot of this. police in british columbia trying to track down a motorcyclist who they believe -- well he did, videotaped himself on a 186-mile-per-hour joyride down the busy trans canada highway. >> what an idiot. >> the video has been viewed a million times, million and one now. they have identified the rider as 25-year-old randy george
6:11 am
scott, how they did that, i'm not quite sure but they have. they are smart over there. the incident took place back in april. scott is facing charges that could land him five years behind bars. >> well that would be lucky that he didn't land 6 feet underground after this stupid stunt, honestly. it's 12 minutes past 6:00. she is legally blind but doesn't mean she lacks vision. a beauty path end contestant who's vision is to inspire. brave knights! as you can clearly see from this attractive graph

6:16 am
here's a look at what's happening. we have a stationary front north of it getting this unsettled air with the lifting from the front and unstable, very moisture laden atmosphere. we have all of this rain but the showers and storms, this is really where we're going to see it on friday today. west virginia, down through tennessee, that's where we could see 1 to 2 inches of rain. friday, a getaway day, a lot of big hubs from the mid-atlantic down to the southeast. and later this afternoon and tonight, some of the heaviest rain and flights will be impacted. in terms of the temperature, certainly not as warm as it's been. the clouds and showers holding temperatures down, 89 and temperatures above average in the northeast. can you see chicago to kansas city, temperatures mild as well. especially in the southeast, the scattered showers could kind of allow for tough travel for what we can see this afternoon develop. >> thanks so much, appreciate it. >> the audience will be ablur but her goals very clear.

today it is all about jm morgan chase and the earnings report. we'll find out how big the rogue trading loss. and christine romans is our resident expert. >> i want to tell you what happened here, we learned about this $2 billion trading loss earlier this year, the beginning of may. and $2 billion is an awful lot of money. the company made like 19 billion, to lose 2 billion in one trade shows a real collapse in risk management at this company that prided todayself on good risk management. the ceo testified before the senate and house, you'll recall, got hammered quite frankly before the house, kind of a gentleman's reception at the senate where they asked about
6:22 am
how big the loss would be. later on we started to hear reports it could be bigger, maybe $5 billion or $9 billion, we'll find out for sure on the earnings call today. they'll release the second quarter earningings and we'll find out how big the loss was and what's happened further to the risk management of the bank to make sure it never happens again. we'll find out if there are any kind of further layoffs for other reasons. we'll find out what the impact is at the eurozone and its banking crisis. this is a hue monday gous banks, my guidance is this thing we'll get the earnings at 7:00 and meet with analysts at 7:30, this can go well into the 9:00 hour as people get a chance to ask jamie dimon everything. >> you'll be pulling your hair out. >> can they assess -- >> i'm going to expect they say they capped the loss and this is

6:24 am
>> that's a great question though. when do you know when you can recoup the losses from refinancing twice in a year? >> you have to do the math yourself. if rates keep falling like this, 3.5% -- >> went from 4.25 and 3.65 and i would recoup in less than a year it was worth it for me. >> 2.86. >> i remember thinking 5.25 and thinking i was nabbing the deal of a lifetime, two points again. >> that was ages ago, like a year. >> so 2011. >> thanks, christine. president obama coming clean, coming up, what he calls the biggest mistake of his first term. . the designated hitter's the best thing to happen to baseball! but it's not the same game!

6:28 am
should just burn them all. >> shame at penn state, with four top officials accused of a child sex abuse cover-up. the school faces for a flood of lawsuits and maybe more criminal charges. a close brush with death, a driver somehow survives this spectacular crash up and over and all of it caught on surveillance camera. hello and welcome back to "early start," a little crash to get you started this morning. alina cho is in for zoraida. >> good morning to you, glad it's a friday. 30 minutes after the hour. more on that controversy over the united states olympic uniforms, lawmakers calling for the red, white and blue uniforms to be scrapped, even burned because they were made not in the united states but in china. but the united states olympic committee is standing by ralph lauren calling his brand an iconic american company. i want to bring in nanette
6:29 am
lepore. a strong proponent of strengthening our garment district here in new york city. nanette, i was surprised to learn that 98% of all clothing brought into the united states is imported. is it really realistic, even though it really looks bad to have these uniforms made overseas, is it realistic to say that this should be made in the usa? >> it's absolutely realistic. i've been manufacturing in new york city for 20 years and we're working with factories working at half capacity. there are companies dying for this opportunity. not only is it realistic to do this one-off thing for the olympics but the factories could go on to continually manufacturer. >> but it's a dying breed unfortunately. as you admittedly point out, you say 15% of your clothing can't
6:30 am
even be made here anymore because knitting mills are closing and those embellished garments are too expensive to make in the united states. the trend, as much as you'd like to keep your clothing made here in the united states, it's getting harder and harder to do so, isn't it? >> not necessarily. there are so many advantages to working onshore as opposed to offshore that for me it outweighs the advantage of working overseas. >> i want to talk a little bit more about this usoc statement, sticking by and supporting ralph lauren and want to put it on the screen. unlike most olympic teams around the world the u.s. olympic team is privately funded and we are grateful for the support of our sponsors. we're proud of our partnership with ralph lauren, an iconic american company. the right decision to come out with that statement? >> i think that they avoided the issue. i think it is true, that i'm sure ralph lauren does amazing things for the olympic teams and
6:31 am
they don't want a backlash against ralph lauren. but it should be up to the committee in the future to make sure everything that goes on the olympic athletes is made in america. >> let's talk about the bottom line because these are obviously huge businesses and the reason why they are sending in so many clothing companies send the clothes overseas is because it's cheaper, right? isn't that the reality today? you are famous for keeping all of your clothes here in the usa and made in the usa. but you're one of a few, aren't you? >> i am, but when i counter source my costing, it comes close to the same because we're saving imports and freight and so many conveniences of manufacturing. but also, sometimes in a case like this, it should be more ethical. maybe we should think because we're representing america, this
6:32 am
is an opportunity to show off our manufacturing skills. it doesn't always have to be because it's cheaper. sometimes and i think that it should be a general psyche that we should think about what's going to bring jobs and make our country stronger. >> one very last question. opening ceremonies are july 29th, is it even possible, harry reid is calling for the uniforms to be burned. is it fobl to remake the uniforms and outfit the entire team? >> i think it would actually be possible. i think it's absurd to try it but i think it could totally be done. >> nanette lepore. >> i don't think anybody should be burning clothing no matter where it is made. plenty of reaction to the president's claim that the biggest mistake of the first

term is putting policy over story telling. saying he's been criticized for not keeping the nation informed about the direction that he's going in. and he calls the criticism valid. >> the mistake of my first couple of years was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. and that's important. but you know, the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the american people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times. >> mitt romney quick to jump on the president's remarks, suggesting he's out of touch if he believes millions of americans lost their homes and jobs and livelihood because he failed to tell a good story, end

quote. if you are not near your tv, make sure you come to your television now. because this is a spectacular crash caught in a red light video. up and launched up and over and on end and back. this happened at an intersection in new jersey. we get the front view, up and over and there goes the light standard and we have the rear view, clipped by a cab and sent spinning through the air. wow. and the delivery truck just keeps going. it's jersey he has a place to be. the driver sustained minor injuries and are you ready for this, alina, arrested, guess what for? dwi. this is what happens when you drink and drive, you go through red lights and clip cabs and maybe end up in jail. >> not a good idea. >> not at all. >> makes for good video though.

>> reputation tarnished. what's next for penn state? we're going to dive deep into the long legal road after a scathing report accusing top school officials of a sex abuse cover-up. p
6:36 am
6:37 am
6:38 am
a scathing penn state report, former director of the fbi, louis freeh is accusing four officials, including joe paterno, of empowering the convicted sex offender, jerry sandusky. >> we see evidence of their
6:39 am
proposed plan of action in february of 2001 that included reporting allegations about sandusky to the authorities. after mr. curley consulted with mr. paterno, however, they changed the plan and decided to not make the report to the authorities. >> and that is serious. you can imagine the backlash, it's only beginning, there are calls for the statue on the campus of joe paterno to be taken down and done away with. in the meantime. the former athletic director tim curley and former vice president of the ufrnt university, gary schultz are facing charges of perjury and failing to report child abuse. and graham spanier is not facing any charges but conventional wisdom says that could certainly change given the revelations and there is a parallel investigation that continues to be carried out by the authorities.
6:40 am
sunny hostin is here with the breakdown on all of this. there's so much -- so much to go over when it comes to this. let me start here. this is a scathing report from louis freeh, the former director of the fbi, hired by the board of trustees by penn state. kind of like an internal investigation and yet louis freeh is scathing about not only these four top officials but the trustees themselves. >> that's right. certainly penn state is to be commended for starting this internal investigation but let's face it and let's be very clear, that is a very defensive move. that is a move to ward off any criminal charges against penn state. because typically when prosecutors look at these kind of cases they look at culp ability and who is responsible and institutions are sometimes charged criminally as well. >> how can you ward it off when you hired someone to suggest how culpable you are? >> it's very smart. if the government is interested in prosecuting penn state, penn state can say, listen, i've
6:41 am
already conducted this internal investigation, i'm a good corporate citizen and including the fact that i have all of these recommendations given by the former fbi director and we have implemented these things. that's a very defensive smart thing for them to do. >> here i was thinking it was al true is tick and you were suggesting they needed to get ins lar about themselves. >> that's typically what institutions do. >> let's talk about how vulnerable it is. there's a note that has been made public that was from the former vice president gary schultz that speaks about truly what this could open up. they are talking back in 1998, a shower incident where a mother came forward and was concerned about. essentially what it says, it asks whether this could be a pandora's box and whether there could be other children. this is the only mention bit the way of other children that i
6:42 am
have heard heretofore. but the fact there is a concern about other children and no action taken, does this leave not only this particular individual but the institution vulnerable to the civil litigation that is sure to be piled on? >> there's no question about it. that is probably in my experience one of the most damaging pieces of evidence i have seen. it certainly infers that there was the idea that this could be much bigger than what they suspected. that means there should have been an investigation. there's no question that there are some civil cases pending, ashleigh. there will be more. there's a fund that has been put together to deal with this. there is no question that these cases will be settled. penn state has given any indication they are going to settle the cases. the only question is how much money will penn state dole out to these victims. >> from what i understand, the fund is around $2 billion. can this shut down?
6:43 am
can this type of civil litigation and the numbers we don't even know about potentially, could it bankrupt this university? >> no, it will not. this is a very strong university. even in this report louis freeh says penn state is a good university, great university. this will not shut down penn state whether or not it tarnishes penn state's reputation forever, that's another story. >> that one will be written in the history books. sunny hostin. >> soledad joins us with a look at what's ahead on starting point. >> i'm great. all eyes are on jp morgan chase, they will release its first earnings report since the multibillion dollar trading loss. what's at stake? some people say your 401(k) could be. we'll bring you those numbers as soon as they are announced. plus, some are saying burn them. some lawmakers furious about team usa olympic uniforms because they are made in china. what do the athletes think?

beeflt, someone gets bitten or scratched and it's the chimps through no fault of their own that pay the price. >> how common is it, we hear about the isolated cases most notably in 2008 when charla nash got her face mauled. thankfully she's doing just fine, back to eating solid food now, there you see her, who could forget that story. having said that, i mean, how common is it for people to have chimpanzees as pets? >> well, two or three decades ago it was a little bit more common. it was considered a trophy or living prestige sort of pet. today it's a lot less common because these animals are number one, incredibly expensive and number two in most places it's illegal and number three, in order to keep one of these animals in a captive

environment, it requires tremendous amounts of permits. both in the federal and state level in most places. your average joe or joanne will not find themself in a position to have one of these as pets. -- >> oh, boy, we're trying to -- >> and goes to the people having them. >> we're really, really struggling to hear you jeffcorwin, we were hoping if the skype wasn't working which ultimately it didn't. we were hoping to get you just on the phone. maybe we can get you back on the phone. thank you for your insight on that. unbelievable. >> i hate when that happens, i was so fascinated listening to him. >> he has so much insight about this. bottom line as he said a ticking time bomb. people should not have these chimpanzees as pets. most people, he is but most people are not trained to have them in their home. >> wild means wild no matter how
