will decide. >> "people" magazine, i think it's the new song. and a judge under fire for sentencing a domestic abuse victim to jail. >> you think you have anxiety now. >> i sentence you to three days in the county jail. >> wow. did she go too far? hear both sides of the story so you can decide yourself amongst you and your family. mornings are better with friends. live in the studio in the heart of mid town manhattan, kind of a quiet morning on this thursday. >> i asked you to keep it down today. >> really? >> so nice of them to respect your wishes. >> so far. >> in about 15 minutes you can go about your business. >> did you hear him? >> right. thank you. >> anyway, we're glad that you're up at your house and you've joined us for this. we have three busy hours and we start with heather and a fox news alert. >> yes. good morning. this is such an incredible
3:02 am
story. we touched on it a moment ago. a fox news alert. a real divine intervention. an elderly woman and her grandson desperately cling to a cross for five hours as the south carolina flood waters rush around them. claire agant is her name and she was on her way to church when her car was washed off the road there. she will though be okay. in the meantime, there are more flooding fears today as that state keeps a close eye on more than 60 dams around south carolina fearing that those dams could break. thirteen have already failed. we'll keep following the developments there throughout the morning. the u.s. coast guard officially ending its search for the 33 crew members who are missing after the el faro cargo ship sinks. it's recovering the ship's data recorder. 28 americans were on the ship when it sank on thursday during a category 4 hurricane. searchers saw one body in the
3:03 am
water. they were unable to recover it. they also found life rings and other debris. well, in washington today the republican conference will hold closed door meetings to volt for a new speaker of the house. this comes after john boehner announced his resignation last month. in the running kevin mccarthy and jason chaffetz and david webster. this is a great story to tell you about. billboards honoring our brave police officers now popping up around the country. there's a tennessee advertising agency. it started the blue lives matter campaign in memphis. shortly after a louisiana company then got on board and donated more than 150 billboards. how fantastic is that? those are the headlines. i'll see you back here in a bit. >> that's terrific. i'm sure more than people at dunkin donuts are upset about that. they have their markers. let's talk a little bit
3:04 am
about this. it got started on this program. ben carson reacting to what happened at oregon community college last week essentially said if he was in that room he would have charged the gunman. when you think about it if you're in that situation you have three options, one, you can stand there. two, you could fire back if you were armed or three you could do something. he was advocating, do something. >> but he wasn't retrospectively going back. brian, you asked him, you said, now, if tomorrow, if in the future this happened to you, what would you do? not what would you do in that situation? it was a brand-new situation because this is our new normal that we're experiencing now. so dr. ben carson said he would do exactly what you said, steve. the morning shows went off on him. they went on attack. >> another news cycle. >> mainstream media went crazy over dr. ben carson. here's the proof. >> welcome to cbs this morning. ben carson is lighting up the gun control debate with
3:05 am
controversial comments on mass shootings, the gop presidential candidate says he would sacrifice his life if he were face to face with a gunman. he said he'd rather see a body with bullet holes than gun control. >> republican presidential candidate doesn't want gun control. >> i think as a rule, don't explain what you would have done in a moment none of us could imagine. >> oh, really? >> that's why you watch this show. >> right. >> just say it. >> here's the thing, it is the most -- i don't remember a time where everyone has -- we lived it. everyone has gotten it wrong. he's being blamed and having to explain something he never said. in generic fashion, if i walk up to anyone on the street and i said, if you were in a crowded room and one person had a gun, what would you do? i might charge, i might run, i have a gun on me. everyone has a hypothetical. that was a question about if you were in that room what would you
3:06 am
have done? just like unfortunately we might have to deal with it sometime whether you're in a train going through europe or if you're in that classroom or if you're in the other dozen of school shootings we've had. he just gave his opinion. you know what he also did. last week when there were floods coming if you were president of the united states what would you order everyone to do? if he answered that question was he going to be under fire? >> sure. >> so yesterday -- in fact, yesterday i asked him, i had a chance to see him, he was over at sirius. i said, how are you handling the backlash? he said, i don't care about it. i have my facebook and social media. i'm able to explain myself to the people that want to be spoken to. >> the thing is he is one of the leading republicans so you know how it works. mainstream media is going to try to take him down and take something that he said even though there is a logical explanation. donald trump came to his defense yesterday. i know they're rivals. donald j. trump said this on twitter. ben carson was speaking in general terms as to what he would do if confronted with a
3:07 am
gunman and was not criticizing the victims. not fair. he's right. so while the morning shows that you're not watching on the other channels are blowing that up without the context, why is it all the networks yesterday for some reason missed this? joe biden says something really insensitive to ay latino group. he said, quote, people walked in like literally down because of the beating. the beatings hispanics are taking at the hands of the republican caucus -- i mean the republican presidential race. how come they have plenty of time to beat up ben carson but no time, the main street media, to simply report what joe biden said? >> they seemed to miss the other comments he's been making about accusing republicans on the ticket of being homophobes and threatening that if he wasn't going to get the nominee he'd be demoted to secretary of state taking a shot at hillary clinton. some of the women's groups. >> did you say take a shot? >> did i? >> you did.
3:08 am
perfect transition. "people" magazine. >> you tune to it in the grocery store checkout line to see what people are wearing out in hollywood. well, now it looks like they've become advocacy journalism because now they are pushing for people who read it to contact their congressman or their senator and do something about gun violence by publishing all 535 addresses and phone numbers and twitter handles for your members of congress. >> urging -- urging everyone to take action right there. you know, it's interesting that the discussion hasn't opened up as well about gun free zones and how they are such a target. you know who's been a target? one of the pope's buddies. he's actually being asked to be fired. archbishop carlo bagano. they're asking for 10 to 15,000 signatures. liberals are. they're asking pope francis to fire the guy who set up a meeting between the pope and
3:09 am
kentucky council clerk kim davis. >> it was hardly a one on one. it was a group meeting. >> they said inviting her to a reception with the pope undermined the pope's message to the united states. number two, it was mean spirited insult to the kentucky couples whose marriage licenses she tried to deny. for the good of the church please have him resign immediately and allow the pope to appoint a new person in his position. the interesting thing is, he's 75. so he's at the age where bishops are required to resign. they're going to try to take credit for what is naturally going to occur. >> everybody loved the pope when he was here. >> yes. >> particularly the mainstream and the left because, oh, look he's talking about immigrants, he's talking about climate, we love that. then on the plane ride over back to rome we heard he had met with her and made some comments about religious liberty. suddenly they don't like him. >> he did weigh in and say i am not taking a position when he realized there was some uproar about it. i met with a bunch of people.
3:10 am
there's an excellent chance he didn't know who he was talking to. >> who are you to tell the pope who he should meet with and who he shouldn't speak to. that's ridiculous. >> one final thing, the group pushing to get this guy fired funded by george soares. >> this group is particularly interested in anybody opposing same-sex marriage and fracking. >> george tores, when he calls everyone snaps to attention. i hope you're happy with the administration. >> meanwhile, ten minutes after the top of the hour on this thursday, and a florida judge is being accused of taking the law too far. that woman. >> she's under fire for sentencing a domestic violence victim to jail after she failed to show up at her accused abuser's trial. >> so critics say this punishment could have serious consequences. we have a look at how and what unfolded. >> it is dramatic video that we have to show you.
3:11 am
judge jeri collins is accused of revictimizing this woman. she was supposed to testify against her baby's father after he allegedly choked her and threatened her with a knife. the woman never showed up so the charges were downgraded. it shows what happened when the victim was hauled in for a contempt of court hearing. >> your honor, i'm very sorry for not attending. >> why didn't you show up to court? >> i just -- my anxiety and i -- >> you think you have anxiety now? you haven't seen anxiety. >> wow. the woman pleas with the judge saying that she asked for the charges against her attacker to be dropped and she just wanted to move on, but the judge was not accepting that. >> i here by find new contempt of court and i sentence you to three days in the county jail. turn around. >> i have a one-year-old son. i'm trying to take care of him
3:12 am
by myself. i'm begging you, please, please don't. please. please. >> i've already issued my order. >> back in july the woman has already served her sentence. critics say this was way too harsh. they say she should have been given community service. they worry the punishment will discourage other domestic abuse victims from speaking up. the judge will not comment on the case. steve, elisabeth, brian, what do you think of that? >> we've only seen a little bit of that. the judge is netting out what's in her mind justice and what she did. i don't think it's that bad. it's three days in jail, it's not three months in jail. >> as a mom i think being away from your kid for three days is tough, particularly if it may be at the hands of someone who's used force against you. we don't have the details in this case. was she trying to use tough judgment on her, tough love to get her to go forward on her claim and charge against her alleged abuser. i don't know. meanwhile, coming up straight ahead at 12 minutes
3:13 am
after the hour. >> the video is terrifying. a teenager forced to jump from a moving car after being abducted by a stranger on the way to school. >> and the federal government at it again with a brand new waste of taxpayer money with a complaint about zombies at the white house. >> of course. the vatican has announced he'll go to new mexico. now that he's met all the catholics in america, he wants to see where they're from. ♪ ♪ just like eddie, the first step to reaching your retirement goals is to visualize them. then, let the principal help you get there. join us as we celebrate eddie's retirement, and start planning your own. ♪ (male announcer) get the right price, right now on the seasonal items you need with new trophy deals- only at bass pro shops. like this moultrie 5-megapixel ir game camera

halloween a few weeks away. here's something kind of scary. a play about three zombies identified as speaker, minority and chair whip all living in the basement of the white house. what's even scarier, the washington, d.c., production is funded with $60,000 of your cash. it is part of the reason why arizona senator got up early to react to this. senator, you want to crack down on this. what can we do about it? first off, how did it get this way? >> well, this is money that's going to the national endowment for the arts. a lot of people assumed that when congress got rid of earmark that that was the end of wasteful spending. it certainly isn't. the federal agencies certainly
3:18 am
keep going funding some of these crazy things. this one comes with a warning, this play that you paid $60,000 for of strong sexual content, sexual situations, nudity and fog. anyway, that's a production that went on this year in washington, d.c. >> if there's anything you don't need warning for, it's fog. meanwhile, there's another $210,000 you found to study if plants know when their leaves are being eaten. >> yeah. i for the life of me can't figure a reason to do that. i don't know what they do if they find out they're being eaten. >> right. >> but that's just the beginning. we publish something every week called pork chops where we look at some of this wasteful spending. the program in california, $7.1 million, this is real money, going to help export california wines overseas. i don't think earnest and jul

we've got a quick look at your headlines on this thursday morning. president obama has issued a rare apology to doctors without borders for the airstrike that killed 22 people in afghanistan. the u.s. admits it made a mistake when it bombed that hospital in kunduz.
3:24 am
overnight it reiterated its call for an independent investigation. and later today volkswagen ceo will be grilled by congress about the events leading up to the emissions test rigging scandal. software was changed to fool regulators into believing that the volkswagen vehicles were compliant with emission standards. 11 million diesel cars were involved and have been recalled. all right, elisabeth. over to you and the doctor. >> thank you, steve. did you know that 30% of u.s. children first play with a mobile device when they are still in diapers and that 24% of 13 to 17-year-olds admit to using their cell phones almost constantly. kids are spending more time on screens than ever. how should parents manage that. joining us is dr. marc siegel from the fox news medical a team. this is the new frontier. these kids 13 to 17 are on it almost all the time, constantly, what do we do as parents to get the controls back?
3:25 am
>> elisabeth, the american academy of pediatrics is coming out with guidelines. we'll talk about them. i think that they're wimps. have you ever noticed that when your kid goes to camp, there's suddenly no cell phone? how do they go three weeks. or in school. no cell phones. no social media. how come when they're home with us we can't stop them? >> what do we do? a lot of times the kids justify their own use with their kid being on. there's a complex thing going on. what do you do for kids? what are some guidelines that they set up to help parents do it? the first one is, what, be actually a good example, be a role model? >> you just said it. you have to be a role model. how are you a role model? you're there with your cell phone, they're going to be there with their cell phone. as we came on you said, elisabeth, you sometimes using your cell phone because you use them as an excuse. >> right. >> hey, they're on a cell phone, i can be on a cell phone. >> why not? >> it becomes a culture of nobody talking to each other,
3:26 am
nobody interacting and everybody punching into their iphone. that's the problem. if you don't use it, they're not going to use it. >> we've done this and i'm glad to have you create text free zones. living room is text free. >> that's an extension of the first point. have a family dinner. have a family gathering. have your kid put their cell phone out -- charge them outside the bedroom door because you know what, they're going to keep the kid awake at night. have you ever noticed doing facebook message it pings all through the night. how can anybody sleep with this going off all the time. charge it outside and have free weekends. >> it requires a lot of discipline. a lot of parents are talking about time, how much time, how many minutes someone spends on screen time when it comes to their kids. you say and this regulation says it's content that matters. >> i don't agree with them totally. again, we talked about this totally before we came on. i think using the thing is not a great idea for the brain. i think there's studies that show that development is delayed when you spend way too much time on cell phones, on social media, on the computer. but if it's an evil that you're
3:27 am
stuck with, content really does matter. parents need to be involved in that interaction with the child and with what's going on on the internet. i mean, there's predators out there. this's all kinds of bad guys out there. you have to watch what your child is doing but help them choose the programs they're using. where are they going on that iphone? what are they doing on it? you can be part of that. the more you're part of it, the saver it is and better. >> a watchful eye. >> absolutely. >> dr. marc siegel, great to see you. always great to see you. the video is terrifying. a teenager forced to jump from a moving car, take a look at this, after being abducted by a stranger on the way to school. plus, hillary clinton sent a copy of her new book to all the republican candidates, but one of those candidates might be feeling a little bit of a flashback or deja vu. take a look. first, we want to wish happy birthday to zella thorne.

3:32 am
look a bit like carly fiorina's book. >> "tough choices." >> you're not the first person to say that. carly fiorina's book came out in 2006. hillary clinton's came out in 2014. both of them feature simple photograph. both of them feature a name. both of them featured the word choices and both of them say a memoir. and that's all -- >> yeah. >> they look pretty much identical except carly fiorina's was a "new york times" best seller. >> one signs it, one's block. >> you don't think they're similar? >> one's wearing a round neck, one has a suit. >> one with the hair above the neckline, one slightly below. >> to me it looks like a knockoff. carly fiorina's book was very successful. >> and her book came out first and it sold a lot. i was thinking maybe it's the same publishing company. >> no. >> but it's two different companies. the first one is simon and shuster and the second one was penguin.
3:33 am
it kind of looks like they intended hillary's book to look like carly's book. kind of. that's what twitter said. >> which one looks more presidential to you? >> good question. >> it is 28 minutes before the top of the hour and heather joins us right now with some stern words for parents. >> petting zoos, we have to be careful of that because there is a toddler who is dead this morning and another one is sick just days after visiting a petting zoo in maine. it's believed that the children contracted e. coli bacteria after they touched farm animals. the little boy who died, 20-month-old quote ton guay, his father says he died of the illness. experts are warning to thoroughly wash your children's extremely weak and water. fatigued, those are all strong warning signs to just take them immediately to the doctor. >> i just talked with dr. segel
3:34 am
moments ago about this. he said children don't have the immune system to fight this off. there's another toddler who is sick with e. coli. that child is in stable condition. we'll keep you posted. a dramatic escape caught on camera. a teenage girl jumps out of a car after she was abducted and assaulted on the way to school. the teen rolled to safety. amazingly she was not injured. you can see there in that lit up yellow circle. police now looking for the driver who they say is a hispanic woman in her 40s. she's driving a gray toyota that is missing its rear bumper. well, it's only october but the war on christmas is already in full swing. >> what? >> the aclu filing a lawsuit over a live nativity scripture and reading during an indiana high school play saying it violates separation of church and state. the suit says that the scene would be appropriate in church but not in a public school. student participation in this, by the way, is completely
3:35 am
voluntary. thousands now coming together online to keep it included in this year's play. we'll have to watch that story. then take a look at this guy, he is quite a shot with his shotgun during a really wild ride. five-time champion phillip storrell took his title and decided to do donuts in a ferrari while shooting clay pigeons. he cannot miss. he loaded pellet after pellet -- shell after shell that is hitting the target every single time leaving behind a slew of all the casings. nice job. you know anyone has shot trapper skeet knows how hard that is. that's really tough. way to go. >> he must have had a drone up there, too. great camera work. >> i don't know. nice. we'll show it to you again. >> thanks. >> you ever tried skeet shooting? >> i bet you you could do it. >> how did you do? >> i was great. >> i think you could do that. >> okay. >> no way, that guy was amazing.
3:36 am
>> it was. >> let's take a look at the weather conditions across the nation. unfortunately it's not so nice across western texas and southwest new mexico. we have been tracking storms amtd we have the threat of flash flooding. now the watches are in effect through tomorrow morning. you're looking at it for a long period of time here of unsettled weather and heavy rain across that area. as we head farther north across parts of the upper midwest and upper great lakes, you're dealing with a lot of heavy rain. this system is forecasting eastward and widespread throughout the day and across the great lakes. tomorrow across the northeast. here's a quick look at your temperatures across the nation. already on the warm side. very mild across parts of the southern plains with temperatures in the 70s right now. forecasted to climb into the upper 80s and 90s as we head out this afternoon. back inside. >> maria head with the fox cast. >> 23 minutes. this friday the highly anticipated aaron sork kin film steve jobs hits the theater

3:38 am
what'sing from about steve and the people around steve by telling them in real time. the movie is just three scenes in the minutes leading up to a product launch and set it all backstage. it was one of those it's so crazy it just might work. >> it just worked. >> it just worked. there's been controversy about the movie. jobs' wife hasn't been all that supportive. >> so people wouldn't see it? >> so people wouldn't see it. we asked some of the cast members, people who are not that familiar with the life of steve jobs and what they would take away after seeing this movie. >> i don't think the movie is too judgmental of him either way. i don't think it is telling the audience to think, oh, he's a good guy or a bad guy, which is one of the good things about it. >> he was a great collaborator and also he was a genius. i mean, his vision is only really now i think that we are
3:39 am
all experiencing just how profound that vision really was and joust howust how ahead of h zblefs he was a tough guy in a business like that but he changed the world. >> there's a great line in the movie where he's talking to his daughter kind of making amends. he says to her, i was made poorly. so there was a lot going on. very complicated genius. >> if i read the book and walter isaacson wrote the book at steve jobs' urging. he said, be honest. be true. he said, i'm not going to like a lot of this book and walter said, you're probably not. he started looking at it before he died. he had an idea what is going to happen. if it's true to the book. the book is true steve jobs' vision. i can understand the family being protective, but it must be accurate. >> how aaron sorkin breaks it down to three acts. he tells the lives through three apple presentations, the launch of the mac, the launch of the next computer and the launch of
3:40 am
the imac. >> fascinating. >> all of this stuff is going on before the presentation nkts how young can you be to see this? >> teenage. >> teenage and up. >> yeah. >> going to open up in los angeles to new york zpl wide release october 23rd. it's fantastic. people already talking about it. >> check out his interviews in the fox light.com and you can follow him @foxlightmichael on twitter which we all do. >> michael, thanks. great look. it was a price hike that sparked national outrage. one drug company raising the cost of a life-saving pill by 5,000%. after protests the ceo promised to roll it back. why two weeks later has nothing changed. judge andrew napolitano is here next. >> the agency of a victoria secret model? hold, hold. still can't tell? hold.

spectrum of wickedness. is there a better system out there? there should be an easy one to win the battle of hearts and minds. we have to explain. >> why won't the united states take the lead verbally with the language? >> that's not up to me. that's for you to decide. >> what do you guys talk about? when you talk european nation of ministers, do they say what's going on or they like what we're doing? >> yeah. i think what we're seeing in syria to some extent is a reflection of the vacuum that the u.s. has withdrawn under the current administration. putin has seen the vacuum and moved into it. the bad militias have seen the vacuum and moved into it. the world is a dangerous place still. a story today about them trying to get their hands on nuclear material. this is not a time to relax. >> but we are. >> you know, there's a corrective mechanism that comes in the form of elections.
4:36 am
i hope you'll use it. >> to your point, if there's any indication they are excited for someone else to come in and take the lead, it's how excited people are about 2016. what do you think about outsiders taking the lead. we have donald trump. dr. ben carson. all rising in polls against those that have been establishment candidates in the past. >> i met ben carson for the first time in your green room. i'm going to -- >> name dropper. >> i'll let the viewers in on a secret. there is an inverse correlation between how nice people are on screen and how nice they are in the flesh. some people on television are mean. this was everybody bit as charming as he appears. that's a good kind of outsider to have. there's a great wealth of talent. cruz, rand paul, there's a lot of people with interesting ideas coming with new agendas on the republican side. i think the three democrats are not so new and fresh. >> joe biden could be getting
4:37 am
in. >> extraordinary thought that is. >> he's the vice president. >> i don't want to be rude. what an extraordinary comment on this policy that he's seriously being considered. >> that's our impression because we have watched what's happened over the last six years. people think he's a nice guy. he's prone to gaffs. is that your perception overseas, too? >> yes. and also that he's past his peak to be honest. we're not getting the energy that originally propelled him. he's managed to do very well out of that system there. a friend of mine, a labor friend of mine said i loathe ronald reagan. the guy was mad as a box of frogs. at least the russians knew he was mad as a box of frogs. maybe we could do that now. >> so that's biden. what about the thought of hillary clinton? people around the world loved bill clinton and they figure, okay, she's the second act of
4:38 am
him. that's not necessarily true. >> not necessarily true. i don't know. you guys are closer to this. i sense that she's stalling a bit. >> because? >> i think just because there was -- how about this? the one thing that would have horrified the founders of this republic more than anything else is the idea of another clinton and another bush fighting another election as though the whole democratic system is the placing for some great families. you know, i heard her talk a lot about why she wants it. but it's not about her. there's something much bigger. i think the single biggest requirement for anyone seeking that office is that they should have the humility to recognize it's bigger than anyone passing through it. >> barbara bush said it first. isn't there anything but these two families to run for president? great insight. >> great to see you guys. always a pleasure. >> the view from the outside. have a safe trip home.

4:45 am
by media outlets saying if he was held at gunpoint, he would challenge. dr. carson, if a gunman walks up and puts the gun at you and says what religion are you, that is the ultimate test of your faith. >> i'm glad you asked that question. not only would i probably not cooperate with him, i would not just stand there and let him shoot me. i would say hey guys, everyone attack me. >> what do you think of that? since he's doubled down on his comments and next guest says the presidential candidate is right. joining us right now is the president of the federal law enforcement association, john adler. charge is the right move? >> correct. it's an action verb. it's not the advice that one might be given in terms of a bear attack where playing dead and possum you might increase
4:46 am
chances of survival. you have to move forward. an active shooter is not there to rob a bank. you are left with one choice and one choice only which is to reach deep into your spirit use that and channel it and charge the target and hope others will do the same to minimize and stop the threat. >> they decided to organize and they had let's roll and took the plane down and saved the capitol and white house. your first instinct may be to run and hide but the better instinct is to attack. this is how headlines are reading. abc news says how ben carson appears to beecond-guessing oregon shooting victims. he's not second-guessing the victims. he was asked by me what he would do. >> that's correct. i applaud dr. carson's spirit. i don't wish that situation on anyone. it's a horrible situation.
4:47 am
it's unthinkable to be under those circumstances. what dr. carson said is you draw upon the american will and seize upon that and deploy everything within your means to charge that threat. a moving target is more difficult to hit than a stationary one. you charge. you let out a loud verbal stun. you do everything you can do survive. what you also do by charging a target is you prevent them from engaging in reloads so that they would increase their casualty count. there are worse things in life than dying with honor. i applaud dr. carson's spirit. >> you had the veteran that took five shots to protect everyone else and went to the fight. that's how he's been trained. an online magazine he writes this is their headline. ben carson is just this vile. you are the law enforcement expert. sadly, this is going to happen again and it's happened before. what is the way forward here if

i was to tell you to start securing these campuses and these high schools and these grammer schools? >> we have to recognize and you notice the pattern. these instances are happening with greater frequency at places of worship and schools. first thing we have to do is arm ourselves with awareness. be aware of where you are. entrances and exits to a room. you have to be cognizant of what's within your reach. i'm not suggesting that you live a paranoid lifestyle. this is the world we live in. you have two choices. you function in denial and render yourself a victim or you face reality and become better prepared. you structure your mind ahead of time. you won't create this winning mindset when the incident happens. this discussion you and i are having is extremely important. americans need to think about this. we don't function. we don't exist to be victims to anyone but unfortunately we can be confronted with dire odds that jeopardize our life but we have to be strong enough to try. >> i would love to know there
4:49 am
would be an armed guard and experienced person or law enforcement expert like you armed to jump on something like this should it happen. >> i agree. these incidents play out in seconds and having a trained armed professional present to respond will certainly help to sustain and contain the threat. >> john, hopefully we stop the next incident with this conversation. i appreciate it. have a great day. >> my pleasure. coming up, sisters creating an incredible company that recycles military surplus for fashion. they both join us next. on this day in 1956, don larson pitched his first and only perfect game in the world series. in 2004, martha stewart reported to prison. and in 1976, the fifth of beethoven was the number one song in america. i love the lyrics.

the full house won't vote on a new speaker until the end of this month. we'll keep you posted on that meeting today. another fox news alert, nypd searching for two men who opened fire on three officers on patrol overnight. police say that the suspect started shooting officers as the officers drove by in an unmarked patrol car. that car was hit several times but the officers were not injured. a 45 caliber handgun was found nearby underneath a car. a third suspect was shot in the leg by police and is now in custody. dramatic escape caught on camera. a teenage girl jumps out of a moving car while abducted and assaulted on the way to school. she was not injured. thank goodness for that. police are now searching for the driver. they say an hispanic woman in her 40s driving a gray toyota that is missing its rear bumper.

5:06 am
first responders. >> reporter: back to our live shot. you can see that businesses in downtown georgetown placed sandbags in front of the doors trying to prevent waters from getting into the business and causing further damage. >> thank you very much, jonathan. a couple days ago on this couch ben carson was sitting here. brian asked a great question about if you would have been in a room with a shooter, what would you do? he said that he would charge the shooter. you have a couple choices. if you were watching other morning shows yesterday and we hope you woereren't, you would e gotten this. ben carson a terrible person. >> welcome to "cbs this
5:07 am
morning." ben carson is lighting up the gun control debate with controversial comments on mass shootings. the gop candidate says he would sacrifice his life if he were face to face with a gunman. he said he wou-- >> it's beyond offensive. >> as a rule, don't explain what you would have done in a moment none of us could imagine. >> when asked what he would have done that nobody could imagine. i think he wanted to say that's the action he would have taken. he does believe that it would be better if there were people in that classroom that were armed. that's crazy according to the president but not according to the doctor running for president. >> this is a person who has devoted his life for four decades saving lives. this is a person who said he would sacrifice his own life for others. what is your problem with that and how dare you twist his words
5:08 am
to indicate that he's somehow saying those victims didn't do enough. he wasn't alluding to that situation. >> hypothetical. >> go back to september 11th, 2001. let's roll in that airplane. he was celebrated for what he did and so ben carson, he made a great point. that was his opinion. we are entitled to our own opinion. donald trump a rival of ben carson said this on twitter. ben trump was speaking in general terms as to what he would do if confronted with a gunman and not criticizing the victims. not fair. >> hillary clinton jumped on him and everybody else jumped on him and even lindsey graham said something negative about his comments. there's a difference. i think the main problem with ben carson right now is that he is surging and in some polls he's leading. it's killed the guy in front. that's what this has been so far for the past four months. >> without a doubt mainstream
5:09 am
media is taking opportunity to attack him over that. somehow they missed. vice president joe biden claiming that republicans beat up hispanics. watch this. >> people walked in like literally down because of the beating, the beating hispanics are taking at the hands of the republican caucus. the republican presidential race. >> we always do this. if roles were reversed and a republican said that about democrats, it would be high on the cover of "the new york times." joe biden has been known to say stuff similar to that in the past. a couple years ago in front of a group where he said republicans would have put americans back in chains. on sunday he said this to lbgt at dinner. there are home phobics left and
5:10 am
most are running for president. >> maybe he'll be there, too. >> plenty of time to attack joe biden for voicing his opinion which he's entitled to. and nobody really covering the joe biden. >> let's see if he gets in. let's see if everything changes. >> from cover to cover "people" magazine known for naming sexiest man alive in their issue. now it's pushing for gun control. >> we lost that year. >> the magazine published contact information for every member of congress urging readers to call or e-mail. there's a problem with those e-mails. >> where do they go? peter is live in d.c. >> we've been calling and e-mailing on this all morning long. as far as we can tell, "people" magazine's list of lawmakers gets everybody's name right and gets everybody's phone number right but the e-mail addresses are not what they seem. so most concerned citizens out there who may feel inspired by this celebrity tabloid call to action probably don't realize

5:12 am
aggregate level. the editorial team does not explain that readers are really e-mailing a third party. back to you in new york. >> they are. thank you very much, peter. >> what does the third party do with any of that information? it's interesting. peter noted that opencongress.com is a function of sunlight foundation. while they say they are nonpartisan, one of the people on the foundation's advisory board is actually running for president. he's a democrat. >> some of the people went to his birthday party are also part of the board. >> they claim to be nonpartisan but here's the thing. you think that you are e-mailing directly to senator barbara boxer or something like that. you are going to them before they pass it on to her.
5:13 am

5:18 am
the self-proclaimed media genius class has been talking to the political class about you behind your back. apparently many of you supporting one of the outsider candidates. maybe even god forbid a republican outsider. they put out an all-points bulletin to be on the outlook for an angry man who could go off at any moment and shake the party system to its foundation. your known associates include fox news watching flag waving women called wives who attend religious services and military veterans who believe in the second amendment. you have also been caught thanking your local cop on the beat. your suspicious behavior supporting outside the beltway political insurgent, an outsi outsider. you are dangerously patriotic. according to the genius class in america, in the end you're going
5:19 am
to turn your back on trump, carson and fiorina because if they're wrong, it's last call and drink up before the lights come up at the insiders ball. you're not invited there. here's what they refuse to recognize about america. a quiet riot of ideals among the unemployed, underpaid, undervalued on the right and left americans are no longer seeking ideology but an attitude and affirmation that our best days are our destiny. it's about opportunity and not anger. an america that knows you left too many of us behind. we left too many first principles and values, that results matter. that truth matters. that correct and right are not the same thing. that mr. smith goes to washington and not all in the family is what you aspire to be. it's a new american people's

>> lynn from texas says i'm concerned that my son has too much debt. has a job and works hard and credit card companies come after him. should he file for bankruptcy? help. >> he surely should get a consultation from a bankruptcy lawyer to find out if he qualifies for bankruptcy and if that's in his best interest and get credit counseling. you can't garnish somebody's wages. so our viewers understand, it's taking money out of your paycheck unless there's a judgment against you first. but what happens often is people put their head in the ground, served with a lawsuit, do nothing about it, avoid service and they get a default judgment and one day some of the money in their paycheck is gone. don't put your head in the ground. >> if you have a question for bob, head over to foxandfriends.com. his show airs at 12:00 and 3:00 on sundays on fox news channel.

5:36 am
out of fear of going to jail. >> just remember the reason she wound up getting the three days in jail is because she was in contempt of court. the judge said you show up here in my court at a certain day and time and never showed up. the judge felt she didn't have a good excuse. that's why she went to jail. >> we have extreme weather to report. >> talk about extreme and divine intervention in one. elderly woman and her grandson desperately cling to a cross for five hours they hugged that cross. the south carolina floodwaters rushed around them. amazing. >> clara was on her way to church when her car washed off the road. amazingly she'll be okay. that's wonderful. >> and we look now at today's forecast coast to coast. >> in south carolina we're expecting dry weather for now. it does look like we can see another round of rain not anywhere near as heavy as what we saw with our last flood

show another way of being. >> how soon from when you thought when you were approached with this project to when you thought about it to actually doing it. seems like a quick turnaround. >> we got involved when the movie was already up and going. we have been looking at the irwin brothers for some time. they showed us some early cuts on this. it had us standing in the screening room cheering. this movie will bring you to your feet. it will bring you to your knees. some really incredible performances. more importantly because of what we're interested in in our company is that you can go to this and bring the whole family to see "woodlawn." it opens on october 16th. you'll be -- it will give you a very satisfying film experience. >> incredible. i have to say, faith based films are succeeding despite attempts in a secular mind and person to remove god out of schools left and right. >> there is a scene in the film

is this what schools are worried about on the playground you ask? >> now you're all in big trouble. we might be. two minnesota elementary schools are paying big bucks to bring in experts to teach students and teachers the politics of the playground but nearly 200 parents at one of the schools signed a petition in protest
5:46 am
after their kids complained. so is there a need to regulate recess or should we let kids be kids. that's the big question. here to weigh in is the executive director kim mccaul. thank you for joining me. so we keep hearing let the kids do their thing. we hypermanage every aspect of their life. are you the recess police? >> of course not. of course not. at play works we believe in the power of play to bring out the best in every kid. so we simply want to create an environment that is healthy, safe and inclusive for every student to be a part of. what we're seeing more and more on our playgrounds unfortunately is bullying, is violence, is exclusion. and that activity is spilling back into our classrooms and disrupting the learning environment. >> if we are managing every aspect of their lives, how are kids to learn how to solve their own problems if adults are continuing to solve them for them even in recess.
5:47 am
they can't get out there and do it themselves on recess. what do you say to that complaint? >> that's a great question. actually, that's not what play works is about in particular. what we want to do is empower kids to lead their own recess and create their own happy and healthy schools. we work independently with classes and teachers to play the games in a one-on-one smaller environment and then when the kids get out to recess, they already know the rules of the game. they can jump in and lead their own activities. we give them the tools that empower them to create their own activities. >> when you hear this story, you think another area where in a way we were overmanaging these kids. recess was supposed to be free. do you provide this service for schools that couldn't afford the $30,000? >> we subsidize some of the cost for schools and work mostly with low-income schools that have a student population 50% or more
5:48 am
fee or reduced lunch. these are underserved schools that have limited resources. >> why are parents complaining about it? what about the 200? what are they concerned about? what do you say to them? >> i say that the skills that play works imparts on kids is building team work. it's building cooperation. teaching respect and inclusion. those are all really valuable social and emotional schools that will prove useful later in life for kids. play works helps to reduce bullying. we're reducing incidents of violence on the playground and helping kids get more physical active. >> the schools that used the services in minnesota is working and bringing up conversation when it comes to recess police. >> more fun for everybody. >> love to know more about it. thank you so much. this coming up, a photo capturing hearts across america. a sheriff's deputy calming this crying baby after a car crash. meet the officer and hear the remarkable story next.

my psoriatic arthritis i'm caused joint pain.o golfer. just like my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. and i was worried about joint damage. my doctor said joint pain from ra can be a sign of existing joint damage that could only get worse. he prescribed enbrel to help relieve pain and help stop further damage. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal, events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders and allergic reactions have occurred. tell your doctor if you've been someplace where fungal infections are common, or if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness.

don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. joint pain and damage... can go side by side. ask how enbrel can help relieve joint pain and help stop joint damage. enbrel, the number one rheumatologist-prescribed biologic. >> he says he did nothing special but he's being called a hero. a hero with a heart. >> a big one in fact. the alabama sheriff's deputy capturing hearts all over america in this photo you're looking at on your screen calming a crying baby after a car crash. the photo has gone viral and it's reached more than 1.5 million people on facebook. >> this man in the picture is a sheriff's deputy. rick, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. i really appreciate you allowing
5:53 am
me to be here. >> are you kidding? we saw the picture and wanted to get ahold of you and now you're here. you're at a crash. you saw mom who is hysterical with baby in her arms. >> yes, sir. so i approached the mother and she was emotionally upset and then she got her baby out of the car and the baby was upset. the mother was more upset than the baby i believe. so i asked the mother if i could hold the baby and without telling her i wanted to do this so she could regain her composure and get a handle on her emotions. >> you did that for quite some time. you did it for over an hour, is that correct? >> off and on for about an hour, hour and a half, my partner, deputy tim sanford, and i took turns. when my arms got tired, i would hand the baby to tim and when his got tired, he gave her back
5:54 am
to me. >> deputy, as we look at this image and we remarked on this yesterday. that isn't just a guy holding a baby. that's somebody that knows how to hold a baby. you're doing it right and that's probably your grandpa gene kicking in, isn't it? >> well, i'm still very involved with my three sons as well as my grandchildren. >> incredible. >> it shows. >> when you see this photo has reached 1.5 million people, what do you hope people take away from this moment right here? from a police perspective. >> well, we aren't machines and we aren't computers. we're human beings. and we have feelings. we have to react and make split second decisions to where sometimes it takes attorneys and judges years to decide on a case. but that's our job.
5:55 am
we don't make the rules. we don't make the laws. we don't always like the laws. it's our job to enforce them. in this case, it was -- i guess you're right. it's from being a father and being a grandfather. it had nothing to do with my training, military training. it's the way i was raised by my parents and the way i raised my sons. >> you were in the right place at the right time and you did the right thing. we are delighted, deputy, that you would join us today. thank you very much. >> and the baby is okay, right? >> yes, ma'am. i'm going to meet with the mother and the baby later on today. >> all right. i got a feeling you're going to hold the baby again. >> she may want that hug again. >> yes, ma'am. i'm looking forward to it. >> all right. he's a deputy down there in jefferson county, alabama. ric linley, thank you very much. >> it's my honor. thank you. >> it's our honor. thank you. we'll come back in just a moment and coming up next,
