7:33 am
mission at all. >> it doesn't change the mission. we have a very short time line, 90 days to have a report on his desk. i told him we would have it done in time for him to review, the recommendation that is we make. these would be concrete recommendations not pie in the sky. things that need to happen and happen quickly. >> and, so much here, hard to imagine, 90 days from now with the ways that the streets of america are just in flamed with anger and is there a real tension, and one of the things that we asked you what are you telling your officers here about what is going on in new york and other places. >> well to remain calm, have a measure response, and never think that all communities, is not true. they are. i think part of the problem is it is a very emotion at period of time but it has been blown out of pro portion in the sense that it gives the impression that there is a widespread hatred towards
7:34 am
police by everyone in the community. all police are engaged in conduct and reviews and both are extremes and neither is really true. we have to find that middle ground, have thoughtful discussions what are problems and issues. >> are there any concerns, we just showed spray painting of cops lives don't matter on the fence. we have a recent, police involved shooting of brandon tait-brown who shot in the back of head and they did find a gun. are you concerned about the climate here in philadelphia about what is going on here and what that could mean. >> i'm always concerned about the the climate in philadelphia but i think people always need to be reasonable in understanding that we have encountered very violent people on the street, people that are armed, people that can cause great deal of arm. we saw that in new york the other day. we have seen it in philadelphia when i first came here with all of the officers shot and killed in the line of duty. we do have occasions where deadly force is used. but we need to make sure that it is only as an absolute last resort. >> turf ask you a question and this is a behind the scenes
7:35 am
questions, philadelphia in in be where brinsley shot his girlfriend in his stomach, and he starts posting on instagram and going to go kill cops. somebody calls and note that is on instagram. they then warn the the police in baltimore county. it took 40 minutes for baltimore to contact new york officers and then they faxed a wanted poster of the suspect what happened? it seems like it took too long because in that time, those two officers were shot and killed. >> you have to remember too most police departments especially large police departments we don't have smart phones, ways to instantly message one other when officers are out in the field. i don't know the technology they have in baltimore f they faxed it. you would be surprised the number of threats we get on a daily base that is we have to sent out to another departments that we get towards our departments. these officers were already out of roll call. how they would have received it if it would have made a difference but certainly
7:36 am
technology could be improved in policing across america. >> that is something that you will talk about. >> we will talk about technology and how it can be improved so information flows quickly. >> and some people are blaming the new york mayor and president obama saying they have blood on their hands for supporting some of the protesters and how things have been going on so far. >> i don't sign off on that at all. these extreme positions do no good for anybody at all. the it is fault of the individual who pulled the trigger and killed those two cops. that is the guy that did it. whatever motivation was, does it matter? it doesn't matter. it is unjustified. it makes in difference. probably what else is going on. the environment may have played a role. who knows. we will never necessity probably but don't start pointing fingers. >> have there been more threats though when it comes to police. >> sure, sure, we get them periodically. we don't publicized them but we get them. >> commissioner ramsey, it has been a long weekend. thank you had for your time this morning. >> thank you. speaking of long weekend if you are an eagles fan my

you may have a chance of seeing a white christmas this year, anyway for 2014, is the poconos mountains, there is already snow on the ground. things are going to be warming up on christmas eve. we will see what happens, with that snow situation there, let's look at the the rain, that we've got coming our way here. it is now, still down in virginia, as we look at ultimate doppler radar but eventually making its way here first to the south, and in delaware, where jersey shore we will see some rain first as well and eventually after 12:00 noon we will just keep talking bit. eventually we will show you what is going on, on ultimate doppler radar. but rain a arrives later on in the day, this is sort of a
7:47 am
preview of coming attractions, we will get some heavier rain, coming our way on christmas eve. here's storm number one and temperatures right now are still pretty chilly. good thing we don't have anything in the area. twenty in lancaster. twenty-seven pottstown. thirty-one in the city. twenty-three in atlantic city. your forecast for christmas eve, christmas day and as they say it across the pond, boxing day, days of christmas. sixty-two on christmas eve. unusual liz mild with showers and thunderstorms. a few left overs in the morning christmas day but sun comes out in the a afternoon and then for friday it looks like a high of 53 degrees. that takes care of your weather. lets check out our traffic on this monday before christmas, how sit looking, bob. >> not that bad. we are seeing volume popping, light quiet morning so far looking live at 42 freeway for gang leaving south jersey heading in towards walt whitman bridge. no major backup.
7:48 am
curb check. septa bus in the background dump truck eastbound not bad right there. light volume on the schuylkill, roads are dry but a problem on the blue route, 476, northbound on the right there, watch for an accident as you head up toward route one. later on today, westbound, lanes of the schuylkill expressway, naughty penndot cruise they will be working cleaning the drains out here between gladwynn, and the conshohocken curve. after a 10:00 a.m. up until about 1:00 we will have have only one lane opened as you work your way out towards conshohocken. pack your patients and check your list twice. they will be working on the ramps from 30th street to the schuylkill and vine expressway throughout the midday and brand new traffic pattern north on route 202, penndot shuffled lanes around and so watch for the 30 bypass and route 401. we have been showing you who will daze lights, all week long and this latest one, is
7:49 am
from die and, of her contacted hiding underneath the tree. we will take a look at your pictures all morning long. isn't that cute. they have the inside of the house, outside. send us whatever you have. make sure you use the hash tag fox 29 lights, so we can show your light pictures on the air this morning. alex and chris, over to you. >> we need our spirits bright went those lights because in playoffs this year, of course, for the eagles. birds were officially eliminated yesterday when cowboys killed the colts. so, what changes need to be made for next season? jon and sean from 97.5 is here to talk about that. first of all to that end let me read you a tweet from a guy named joe. first of all, the hash tag is chip must go. he is not an nfl coach. can't make adjustments. defense wins championship. lets start with chip kelly. >> easy to say that today. i was down at the game, and what will you say bit.
7:50 am
that is biggest thing for me, they had an opportunity to bench bradley fletcher. he gets beat every week. they were stubborn bit. they had a chance to put somebody in there. shawn, they could have gone in and it cost them the game. they have to bring in new guys obviously. >> it is obviously if we're talking about championships, this team is not on that level. they have a lot of holes including the secondary that jon pointed out. my biggest beef is chip kelly wanted to tell thus off season cutting desean jackson about culture, culture this was one of the most undisciplined football teams i have ever watched in mize life, leading the league in turnovers, with the penalties, missed field goals. you cannot count on that because parkey had a good season. when push comes to shove in the end you cannot do that and expect to make a playoff run. that goes out the window. if you cut desean jackson a play maker bring a guy back like riley cooper who has more
7:51 am
baggage than desean jackson and say it is all about culture. you better deliver. they failed to do that this year. >> let's talk sanchez too. some people say he fooled. >> he did. turnovers. >> here's bottom line he is a backup quarterback. he performed pretty well in that game. is is he the reason. >> he knew he was coming. >> it was one of the reasons. >> this throw right there. >> you knew it was coming. >> if nick foles is the quarterback next year? i don't know. it will not be mark sanchez. mark sanchez as your starting quarterback good luck. this is biggest collapse in 20 years as far as eagles. they were seven-two in 1994 under rich co kite and they lost their last seven games. it doesn't matter what happens, because they lost three straight games in december. you cannot do that. this is tough to take. >> third time in the 25 years a team started off nine-three and failed to make playoffs. >> yes, so huge. >> think about where we were,
7:52 am
thanksgiving, turkey day, going nuts, before christmas being eliminated. >> someone said could this be one of the worst times in philly sports. we have phillies. we have the flyers. >> one, two, strike on. yes. >> would you agree this is probably one of the worst times. >> it will be an interesting off season from our perspective talking sports on the radio every day, we don't necessity who quarterback is, we have a problem with chip kelly, they need to do different stuff. what we have to do is it is year two of the building process. chip kelly owes us one. this is ridiculous. the who is quarterbacking forward. andy reid had donovan mcnabb has first year. they will go to the super bowl run. >> looking across the landscape of the league and teams constantly in the playoffs a, you know i look at the steelers. they are back in it. right to the quarterback. it doesn't matter hot coach is, hoist the quarterback.
7:53 am
roethlisberger gets them back in the playoffs. >> thanks, guys for depressing us. >> happy holidays. >> okay. so pack your bags we are telling you about the best last minute holiday travel deals, after this conversation you just want to get out of here.
