tv New Day Sunday CNN March 8, 2015 5:00am-5:31am PDT
wisconsin, police. your "new day" starts right now. this is cnn breaking news. we begin with breaking news. so grateful to have your company as always. i'm christi paul. >> i'm joe johns. >> chaos, confusion and human error. >> we're learning new information about missing malaysian flight 370. today marks the one year mark since the boeing 777 disappeared with 239 people on board. a new report from the malaysian government was just released. >> the team of batteries on the underwater beacon had already expired because of a maintenance mixup. that would have helped find obviously the flight data recorder. >> officials say there's no evidence of any unusual engine behavior and during the flight's final hours there was chaos, confusing communication between radar operators and air traffic control. >> we're going to take a look at the report in a minute, a closer
look and break it up. first, a lot of these families of flight 370 are gathering this morning for a vigil at kuala lumpur where that doomed flight took off. cnn's anna coren is live there. i know they were given access to this report before the public was. what is their reaction to it? >> reporter: yeah, christi, from the families we are speaks to, some of them are saying it is meaningless. it does not say where their loved ones are or what happened to those on board mh-370. so a great deal of frustration at a time when they are grieving. others are angry about the timing of this report saying it's very insensitive, inappropriate to be releasing it on this particular day. but it's an independent report by a body of seven international organizations, air accident organization investigations from all around the world. as far as these families are concerned, christi, it really
sheds no light whatsoever as to where their families are. and at the end of the day, that's what they need to know. those desperate answers. one of those people being danika wicks whose husband paul was aboard mh-370. take a listen to what she told me earlier. >> i'll never stop searching for him. he gave everything to us. he's amazing and so i know if the shoe was on the other foot he wouldn't stop looking for me. i'll never stop looking for him either. >> reporter: danika like so many other families concerned that once the search of the priority zone is completed at the end of may that the search will be called off. it's really a grave fear. the malaysian prime minister coming out today saying malaysia is committed to the search. you know, the world deserves answers. the families deserve answers to what is the greatest aviation
mystery. >> it is a mystery. everybody is curious about it. at the end of the day it is these families that matter so much. it's hard to see what they're going through. anna coren, great story. thank you so much. while malaysian officials say they are still committed to finding flight 370, australian prime minister tony abbott says the search simply cannot go on forever. >> can't go on forever, but as long as there are reasonable leads the search will go on. we've got 60,000 square kilometers that is the subject of this search. if that's unsuccessful, there's another 60,000 square kilometers that we intend to search. as a segue, we're reasonably confident of finding the plane. >> let's bring in cnn aviation analyst and former inspector general of the u.s. department of transportation, mary schiavo. thank you for joining us. what's your reaction to the
australian prime minister's comments? >> i think he's being brutally honest. it truly can't go on forever. it's a matter of resources and also a matter of they've scoured or they will have scoured the most promising area based on the nmarsat data. it was utter confusion and that helped add to the mystery because they were searching in the wrong areas at first. the malaysian government was not fully forthcoming on some of the radar information so i think tony abbott's being -- wrong day i suppose to be this bluntly honest, but it won't go on forever. >> there was confusion and there was also apparently some serious human error, expired pinger batteries, miscommunication between radar operators and air traffic control. what do you think the aviation industry can learn from this even though the plane hasn't been found yet? >> well, many things.
the aviation industry can learn that in this day and age that it is ridiculous for a modern jet liner not to be equipped to be visible and seen even after a tragedy befalls it meaning it needs to have a continuous download from the aircraft as to location. there are recommendations like that now afoot. obviously it can't help this plane, but that was first and foremost in that this plane shouldn't be flying around and literally be invisible unless they communicate with air traffic control. and i think the other thing that was most troubling to me is that they didn't comply with the battery requirements. i don't know if that would have made a difference because, remember, the malaysia government did not tell the searchers right away, for four days they searched in the south china sea and then the malaysian government said we saw the plane go up and around indonesia. that really delayed the search. people might remember they also thought they had pings in one area of the search and it turned
out not to be pings at all, it was the wrong frequency. so there are a lot of missteps. and the pinger batteries might not have made a difference in the long run anyway, but they shouldn't ever be allowed to be expired. >> interesting what this report is saying and not saying. officials say the pilot and the crew showed no unusual signs of stress. does that rule out, for example, true pilot error or pilot suicide? >> well, i think it does because you need to have evidence of a crime if you're saying a crime was committed, and right now there's no evidence of any crime. there's no evidence of pilot suicide. there's no evidence of sabotage or hijacking. there just simply isn't any criminal evidence to be following criminal leads which, of course, brings the search back to the possibility of a mechanical failure or catastrophic failure. for those we know something happened to the plane. there isn't a lot of evidence of what happened. we know something happened
because it went missing. so it comes back some to the earliest -- in many ways to the earliest leads, the garbled transmission that another plane heard, the fact that they know for certain that it turned back. that's about all that they have other than the nmarsat data but there is no evidence of a crime certainly that i see. >> along those lines though, i think you have to ask the question, clearly there was a duty here to protect the people in this plane. clearly someone did not, you know, sort of live up to the expectations what was required handling these people and that raises the issue, at least, of criminal negligence in the minds of some. do you see the possibility of that, potental charges at least for criminal negligence because of so many things that apparently wrong and humans were at the root of it? >> well, it would depend on which nation was going to do
that. surprisingly, in the united states the federal aviation commission, criminal negligence charges should not be brought in an aviation -- civil aviation accident where there isn't criminal behavior such as terrorism, sabotage, things of that sort. but certainly so much went wrong here. unfortunately for folks who are interested in criminal charges a lot of it was the fall of the malaysian government. there was certainly enough to say it was egregious, wanton and willful negligence at a minimum. >> mary schiavo, thank you so much for that. good seeing you again. >> you, too. thank you. we have new audio for you in the case of a police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager. take a listen here. >> shots fired. shots fired. >> shots fired. >> shots fired.
i am an electric crew foreman out of the cupertino service center. i was born and raised in the cupertino area. it's a fantastic area to work. the new technology that we are installing out in the field is important for the customers because system reliability i believe is number one. pg&e is always trying to plan for the future and we are always trying to build something stronger and bigger and more reliable. i love living here and i love the community i serve. nobody wants to be without power. i don't want my family to be without power. it's much more personal to me for that reason. i don't think there's any place i really would rather be. 12 minutes past the hour now. we're gathering new information about the shooting death of a 19-year-old killed by police in madison, wisconsin. an officer shot tony robinson to
death friday night. >> according to public records, robinson, he's got a bit of a background. he pled guilty last year to armed robbery. we want to point out he was unarmed when he was killed friday night. madison police chief says the fact that he has a checkered past should not matter. >> i frankly think it is for our purposes today wholly inappropriate and i am not going to blemish anyone's character, particularly one as young as his and over the circumstances of what his family has dealt with. >> cnn rosa is joining us live from madison. there are still police behind you. is that the scene there behind you? >> reporter: it is, and it's
very telling given that this incident happened friday evening. but i want to start with the mother in this case, the mother of this teen. at the end of the day there is a mother waking up this morning who doesn't have her son anymore. i talked to her yesterday afternoon briefly and she just mentioned that she is devastated by what has happened. describes her son as a gentle giant because he was about 6'4", 200 pounds. he graduated from high school last year. here's what she had to say. >> my son has never been a violent person, never. and to die in such a violent, violent way. >> reporter: and, you know, she also tells me that she's a bit disturbed by what police are saying, how they're describing her son because they're painting a very different picture. they're painting a very different picture as to what happened behind me. let me set the scene for you. you can see there's a small memorial.
there's police officers still securing the scene, crime scene tape. here's what we know from police. friday evening police say that multiple calls came in to dispatch about robinson. he's 19 years old, and these callers were saying that -- allegedly that he was weaving in and out of traffic, that he was dodging cars and that there was anna ledged battery incident. this is where things escalate. you see the house that you're seeing on your screen as you take a look. officer matt kenny responded to the house. as he responded to the house he hears a commotion inside. he forces through the door, and if you look carefully behind me, you'll see that that door is still taped off. there's plastic that's covering that particular door. well, he goes in, according to police mthere's some sort of scuffle and that's when the deadly shots were fired. we have to point out that robinson was unarmed. here's what police have to say.
>> he was unarmed and that's going to make this all the more complicated for the investigators, for the public to accept, to understand that deadly force had to be used. >> reporter: now as we take another live look, you still see the crime scene, the police cruiser. police still securing this scene. i've got to let you know that here in wisconsin, by law the police department that's involved in the officer involved shooting doesn't get to investigate themselves. in this particular case the investigation is being conducted by the wisconsin department of justice. >> hey, rosa flores, great reporting there for us. thank you so much. we're working on breaking developments out of russia. new images being released of the suspects behind the assassination of a top putin critic. and president obama is speaking out for the first time
regarding hillary clinton's e-mails. he says he first learned about the controversy from the media. so is he backing his former top diplomat? as quietly as possible. no sudden movements. google search: bodega beach house. i am a lot of things. i am his guardian. i am his voice. so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to his current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment, like aricept®, it may improve overall
function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. vo: namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have, or ever had a seizure disorder difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney, or bladder problems, and about any medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body... and may increase side effects. the most common side effects... are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. wvo: all my life, he's protected me. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about adding... once-daily namenda xr. femabut where am i gonna go? a whole lot of unused vacation days, i just don't have the money to travel right now. i usually just go back home to see my parents, so i can't exactly go globe-trotting. if i had friends to go with i'd go, but i don't want to travel by myself.
someday. male vo: there are no more excuses. find the hotel you want, and the flight you want, and we'll find the savings to get you there. intercourse that's painful due noboto menopausal changesit... it's not likely to go away on its own. so let's do something about it. premarin vaginal cream can help it provides estrogens to help rebuild vaginal tissue and make intercourse more comfortable. premarin vaginal cream treats vaginal changes due to menopause and moderate-to-severe painful intercourse caused by these changes. don't use it if you've had unusual bleeding, breast or uterine cancer, blood clots, liver problems, stroke or heart attack, are allergic to any of its ingredients or think you're pregnant. side effects may include headache, pelvic pain, breast pain, vaginal bleeding and vaginitis. estrogens may increase your chances of getting cancer of the uterus, strokes, blood clots or dementia so use it for the

president obama spoke out about it for the first time. clinton has come under scrutiny for using a private e-mail account when she was secretary of state. in an interview with cbs the president said he's glad clinton called on the state department to release her e-mails. listen. >> hillary clinton and has been an outstanding public servant. she was a great secretary of state for me. the policy of the administration is to encourage transparency, that's why my e-mails, the blackberry i carry around, all those records are available and archived. >> michael smerkonish is hosting state of the union this morning. michael, you have an exclusive interview for a former ambassador who worked underhill ri clinton. let's talk about that. >> hey, joe, i am really psyched about that. we have former ambassador to
kenya, scott gracian. he said he was fired in part for handling his e-mail in the same way secretary clinton handled her e-mail. it raises questions as to whether there's a double standard in play here. also, today is the 50th anniversary of the first u.s. ground troops to land in vietnam. we have former governor, former senator, mid dal of honor recipient bob kerry and author dave maranist. >> michael smerkonish, thanks so much for that. it starts at the top of the hour 9:00 a.m. on cnn. we'll be right back. ohhhh. okay veggies you're cool. mayo, corn dogs you are so out of here! ahh...

>> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. got some breaking news to tell you about. you're looking at the first pictures we've seen of suspects accused of murdering boris nemtsov, a top putin critic last week in moscow. they were brought to a moscow court a little over an hour ago. while details remain extremely vague, the tas news agency is reporting that a fifth suspect
has been arrested for the assassination. one of these men is a former chechnyan republic police officer. >> we'll continue to follow that throughout the day. want to give you some other top stories. police are stepping up patrol in a dallas neighborhood. ahmed al jamawi stepped outside to watch his very first snowfall when someone shot him with a rifle. investigators say there is no indication this was a hate crime but they also say they are not ruling that out. no arrest has been made. a spanish dolphin trainer accused on social media of abusing animals has been found dead. he was found inside his car. the georgia aquarium had hired him to become its vice president but that was put on hold once this, as you see it here, violent video with the abuse violations. former vice president walter
mondale out of the hospital. he was admitted to the mayo clinic on saturday with the flu. in a speech in minneapolis former president jimmy carter says the 87-year-old mondale is doing just fine thankfully. in just a few hours thousands will hit the streets in order to mark the 50th anniversary of the march on selma, alabama. >> president obama and the first family joined hands with civil rights leaders on the edmund pettus bridge commemorating that historic moment yesterday. >> john lewis was there along with nearly 100 other lawmakers. lewis and the president spoke at yesterday's events echoing similar thoughts, that there is room for improvement when it comes to race in america. >> don't give up on things that have great meaning to you. don't get lost in a sea of despair. we are one people, one family, the human family. we all live in the same house.
the american house. there's still work left to be done. >> it was not a clash of armies but a class of wills. a contest to determine the true meaning of america. what could more profoundly vindicate the idea of america than plain and humble people, unsung, the down trodden, the dreamers not of high station, not brn to wealth or privilege, not of one religious tradition but many coming together to shape their country's course. what greater expression of faith in the american experiment than this? >> we still live in the same house, the american house. we'll have live coverage of today's march in selma later right here on cnn. >> thank you so much for starting your morning with us. we hope you go out there and
make some great memories today. >> thanks a lot. "inside politics" with john king starts right now. >> take care. hillary clinton hardly seems worried. >> don't you some day want to see a woman president of the united states? >> republicans say using a private e-mail account while secretary of state broke the rules and may have put sensitive secrets at risk. >> you do not need a law degree to have an understanding of how troubling this is. >> plus, jeb bush makes his first iowa trip as a 2016 contender. >> i learned a lot by campaigning for my dad and for my brother. i learned a lot about iowa as well. >> and president obama reflects on selma. >> we know the march is
