7:02 am
>> all right, good. good. i'm looking forward to that. yeah. it's day three. yesterday, i'll be honest with you, was very difficult. it's a lot flatter where i am today but as you can see the rain is falling. it's supposed to rain for the next several hours. so we're going to get wet and sore today but it's for a great cause. >> and it's a beautiful ride along the north fork. there are plenty of vineyards along the way if you need to stop. >> exactly. i'll be making some lunch stops. maybe two or three of them. >> we'll see you in a little bit. let's get to today's top story in the meantime. things could go from bad to worse in waco texas. this morning there's new fallout from that vicious shootout between rival biker gangs and growing fears now of revenge attacks including on police. miguel almaguer has the latest on this. miguel good morning. >> reporter: savannah good morning. this texas restaurant the texas -- the twin peaks bar and grill remains a crime scene. investigators are cataloging more than a hundred weapons.
7:03 am
everything from knives and clubs to guns. and this morning investigators say officers on the street have now been targeted by gang members. with 9 killed and 18 wounded in the gruesome lunchtime brawl, this morning 170 suspects all said to be members of rival motorcycle gangs are in jail. charged with engaging in organized crime. the vicious attack at this popular strip mall packed with police was so brazen some called the outlaws domestic terrorists. >> they may not be book smart, but these guys have their ph.d.s in violence and intimidation. >> reporter: jay dobbins who went undercover to infiltrate the angels. >> it's all about colors and how
7:04 am
they look and do you have permission to be there. it's a nasty vomit covered existence. >> reporter: which each suspect held on bond and more outlaws said to be on their way here. the banditos gang has the deepest roots in waco. it was a rumble with the cosacs. to the west the hells angels are notorious while the outlaws have a presence in the midwest and south as the pagans thrive in the east. the gangs can number in the thousands. >> like any criminal organization it's about money. it's about control. you probably haven't seen the end of it. >> reporter: in fact because police say their officers were involved in the shooting they say gang members are now targeting them out on the streets. as for the restaurant owner here he says despite what police have said he cooperated with officers and tried to prevent violence here.
7:05 am
he said he's held other luncheons here that were not violent. >> you're talking about 170 arrests. how are police handling that? >> reporter: yeah. the police had to originally take all of the suspects to the convention center. but they say they have plenty of room in their jals. they say anyone else here causing problems will be taken to jail. >> miguel almaguer, thank you. the state department said it will be early next year before it's ready to release e-mails mcstored on a private server. what is taking so long? kristen welker is in iowa where clinton is wrapping up a two-day campaign tour. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: willie good morning to you. hillary clinton will meet with business leaders here later on today. but you're right. it's coming as we're learning it could take the state department until january of 2016 to review and release e-mails saying it's
7:06 am
an incredibly labor intensive process. all of this is reigniting the controversy over her use of a private e-mail account while serving as secretary of state. hillary clinton is trying to get up close and personal with iowa's voters. >> i don't want this election to be about me. i want it to be about us. >> reporter: but this morning new criticism over lingering issues including her use of a personal e-mail account while serving as secretary of state. chris christie slammed her late monday. >> i think the server at home business is just absolutely incredible. that you would be secretary of state and be working off a private e-mail and then be deleting and destroying that stuff is incredible to me. >> reporter: this comes after clinton disclosed she and bill raked in $30 million over the past 16 months. mostly through paid speeches. gop rivals now pouncing on the huge payday are you satisfied that secretary clinton has been transparent enough when it comes to delivering speeches?
7:07 am
>> she hasn't been particularly transparent on a lot of things. from her e-mails to her work at secretary of state. >> reporter: clinton officials have denied any ethical wrong doing and says she favors the working class. a point she's trying to sell here. >> there's something wrong when the average american ceo makes 300 times more than the typical american worker. >> reporter: but clinton is keeping her distance from the press. avoiding questions for the past three weeks. >> the question is about why clinton doesn't take questions. >> reporter: now, so far clinton campaign officials haven't reacted to the timing of the release of those e-mails, but if they aren't released until next january, that will be days before the iowa caucuses. as for this week hillary clinton will head to new hampshire in a few days. >> kristen welker on the trail in iowa. thank you. got new information on the deadly amtrak derailment in
7:08 am
philadelphia. the fbi is now ruling out a theory that it was a bullet that struck the left side of the train's windshield. but the ntsb is still considering whether another projectile could have fractured it disorienting the engineer who was new to that route. >> why the train accelerated in the final minute before derailing remains the primary focus of the information. human error or mechanical failure? meanwhile amtrak released new safety upgrades. among them an automatic braking system and a new split along the curve where last week's crash took place. natalie has more stories including over in iraq. >> searching door to door after capturing the iraqi city of ramadi. authorities say some 500 civilians and soldiers have died in the killing rampage since friday. shiite militia men are preparing

7:45 am

8:44 am
conversation. why is curiosity so important to you? >> it's expanded my world view my life, the locations i've been in my life. >> reporter: now grazer has written is book "a curious mind: the secret to a bigger life." he says some conversations have even influenced his work. like the movie "8 mile" which was made after he met eminem. more recently he chatted with rapper kendrick lamar when his kids said this. >> my god. kendrick lamar. this guy is the bomb. meet him. then i did. and he surprised me in every possible way. >> reporter: how did he surprise you? >> first of all, his music is street ji and aggressive and smart. he's like a rapper poet. in person, he's pretty quiet and gentle. >> reporter: here's something you may find curious about grazer. he likes to leave behind heart-shaped photo frames with his picture. >> i leave them all over people's homes. and sometimes they're horribleyey offended by it and other times

>> announcer: "today's" health is brought to you by pronamel toothpaste. protect your enamel against the
8:48 am
theesquethe effects of everyday acid. >> we are back at 8:47. may is mental health awareness month. according to the statistics one in five americans suffers from mental illness. that's about 43 million people. yet only 41% are getting treatment. today when you can get about everything on your smartphone could therapy by text be one of the answers? jen, it's always good to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> let's start with what this is. how does it work? >> you can sign up for a service. you are connected with a licensed mental health professional. instead of going to their office you have therapy on the go. any time you're working through something, you can text and expect an answer back within a reasonable time. >> i mentioned in the leadin many don't get help they need. is that stigma access a combination combination? >> i think it's a combination. we do not look at mental health issues despite the numbers. we aren't looking at it in the
8:49 am
same way we're looking at other things. that stigma still follows us. the more we can talk about it and the more access we can provide, the better mental health as we get older. >> to me it feels like you need to sit face-to-face to understand a problem. >> i think there's a benefit in some way. people don't have access. if i'm in the middle of the town write where i don't have that response. i can get it this way. we're missing a whole level of communication where i see your face and get tone of voice. i can't get that on text. so there's a lot of interpretation that might be wrong. >> okay. all right. so let's move here now. some things that could be lost in translation. i know when i text somebody not even with a problem, they don't get the joke the tone i'm using. does that concern you? >> definitely. we text a lot. but it takes a lot for me to understand where they're coming from. if they make a comment like i want to die today. are they serious? are they not? i have an established relationship with them.
8:50 am
i see their face i can interpret that. if it was someone i didn't know now what do i do? yan lot of these text therapy programs do provide some support and get them the access to support they need in the state that they're in but it's not as immediate. that makes me a little concerned. >> so much of what you do is built on trust with a patient. how do you build trust over text? >> it's hard. it's also a generational thing. we are not people who grew up only with text messages. the teenagers and younger people i work with will say of course when they're talking i say are we talking on the phone or text? it's often through text. so i think it gets there much more quickly. but we still aren't getting facial expression spops i'm not able to read that stuff. >> one of the benefits people have pointed to is it costs much less than visiting a doctor. >> it does. it's not covered by insurance. but it is a more affordable and acceptable means of treatment. >> okay. let's take one more look here. i want to give an example. we've removed names and context because we want to protect
8:51 am
privacy here. but he's a sample exchain. patient writing what do you mean by getting more support? do you mean having family help out more with children? no i meant having a supportive conversation at night or you feel admired or appreciated for the husband and father you are. >> this to me makes sense. this is probably something that someone could ask me in my office and an answer i would give. i don't know that this is so challenging in this moment. because i'm asking a pretty direct question and getting a pretty direct answer. but what if i said what do you mean about getting support, and the second was not in there? then as the therapist i have to give more information. i might say to the person in my office what do you think might be helpful to you and have them generate that. >> very interesting. thanks so much for your insight on this. for an in-depth look at what happened when we tried therapy by text head to up next more from our road warrior matt as he powers through the tour de red nose. but first this is "today" on
