10:04 am
a news reporter at fox mind shine no he joins us now on the phone from minneapolis paul thank you very much for being with us we have seen crowds of protesters face off with riot police throughout the evening in minneapolis just bring us up to speed with the situation right now i things any comma. well good day to you thanks for having me on actually i have just left you played that comment from the mayor jacob fry here in minneapolis from city hall just moments ago 6 i was at that news conference so i've been removed from kind of the ground situation in a couple of our hardest hit neighborhoods but what i can tell you 4 as of last check of the city of minneapolis basically gave up on key police station in the pocket of the city where we call it the 3rd precinct 4 where george floyd
10:05 am
was arrested and subsequently # i had the precinct that serves that part of the city of minneapolis was overrun by demonstrators they broke in they breached some security fencing that had been put up they got inside and the mayor acknowledged at this news conference that just wrapped up 1520 minutes ago that it was his decision to give up on the 3rd precinct that even the symbolism of the last building that has subsequently been set 'd on fire and still continues to rage in flames that that symbolism is that that loss of property and the building is far less important than protecting lives and that was the mayor's decision to wave the white flag 'd and evacuate and you've mentioned some sort of gauge meant of demonstrators of looters of some of the the bad apples if you will the bad actors who have brought such carnage on our city these last couple of
10:06 am
nights but there really has not been a great police in gauge meant right elise have basically ceded the 3rd precinct police department building itself and the surrounding neighborhood the firefighters they got in for the fight one blaze on that block that was started by demonstrators but right now when we went into city hall. 'd one last look of it 'd from a bridge overlooking the scene and there were several fires including that police station still going without a drop of water being placed on a pole tell us about the people who've been out on the screen the president in his tweet referred to thugs who has been protesting these past 3 days in minnesota well it's i mean it's a great question i mean it's. after the incident in the video surfaced. there was 8000 people the minneapolis police department estimated at
10:07 am
a george floyd protest rally demand for justice 'd to seem of the incident. 8000 it was loud people were heard they were angry they shared their feelings we had a very difficult time in our community with racial tensions especially when it comes to relationships with the police force another black man to mobley innocent handcuffed. no weapon killed on the streets of minneapolis there was anger in that crowd but they most of them marched peacefully they demonstrated peacefully but then we had a splinter group that was allowed to go off and create. damage to do harm to the city and that continued for the next couple nights are there what i would call these that actors there are there you know i don't want to label them
10:08 am
all as i mean saugus is not a term i would use but. some are from out of town tonight at the protest 'd movement and our guest as we come in from the state of virginia right to be part of the trouble but bob so yeah it's all good all the square feet of the guy you know who are motivated beyond a political statement as we see in the angriest spreading to other cities across the united states we've heard your man's response to the president's tweet the president saying that you know he might send in the military saying that when the looting staunch the shooting sourness this is a clear threat from president trump and you know the president seems to be throwing gasoline on the fire how is this trying to go down with the people who have been out on the streets. it's a great question i mean the thing that confused me by the president's tweet is is the governor this is the mayor you know we have the city mayor and then the governor of the state of minnesota where minneapolis sets and the governor has
10:09 am
allowed for the national guard that's a state entity to come then to assist law enforcement in these efforts we had 500 soldiers that were deployed they were getting up to speed we were expecting them 'd to protect firefighters so they could go to some of our burning buildings if you've seen the video we have you know it was mentioned in the neighborhood that the 3rd precinct there are fires burning it's unclear what the president means clearly he's trying to put pressure on the city he's had kind of a longstanding tug of war pushback with the mayor of minneapolis he's a young guy a good looking guy very very 9 center politically they had a brew when the when the president was going to come to minneapolis several months ago and then didn't jay come for i was going to make him pay the campaign pay for you know some of the business that was going to be needed at the local big basketball arena where trump was going to hold the rally so there's been this
10:10 am
bitterness between the 2 and then you heard the mayor get angry answering a question about those tweets i don't know where it's going i asked the mayor point blank what is the plan going forward the mayor did not provide specifics we know he's getting assistance from our state law enforcement agencies we know the military should have boots on the ground in minneapolis shortly but a lot of people in this city have been unhappy that these. you know demonstrators rioters looters have done so much damage not just to a police department but we have had businesses up and down several businesses corridors in minneapolis destroyed damaged and pilfered over the last couple nights and these city residents are demanding when is it going to stop right. thank you so much paul for bringing us up to speed with what's been happening on the ground there paul view is a local reporter in minneapolis. we are going to show you some live pictures now

10:12 am
suspended and some open ones were ordered to close a gain. the government is looking at revisiting easing restrictions due to a recent spike in new coronavirus cases there a further $58.00 new cases have been announced most of them from seoul and linked to an online shopping warehouse let's bring in our correspondent in seoul rob mcbride so rob south korean officials scrambling to contain this new outbreak. that's right this is an outbreak that's causing major disruption to the reopening of schools schools here in south korea as elsewhere have been closed for months and after a lot of very careful planning to make sure it's done safely then very carefully we are in the middle of a staged reopening of schools it's a reopening that's already been delayed by a couple of weeks because of another cluster or another outbreak and we're now likely to see further disruption right in the middle of this process so some
10:13 am
schools that had are due to reopen several 100 of them now have to put back their reopening and more than a 200 schools in an area called both to china and to the west of a soul a soul which had already reopened are having to close again no boots on is the location of this major warehouse distribution center that is at the center of this latest outbreak we have had the latest daily cases of the new cases of corona virus in south korea are $58.00 and most of these cases are from this facility it is slightly less than yesterday so the authorities are hoping that they've brought this latest cluster under control but there are had to carry out several 1000 tests of people who work at this center their associates family members to try to trace everybody who's been infected and it has led to the authorities know reimposing some of the restrictions that they had already relaxed at least in the greater
10:14 am
seoul metropolitan area things like the reopening of venues like galleries and museums well they have now been closed again for another 2 weeks and in the meantime the author it is here are ordering checks on some of these large warehouse facilities to make sure that there is social distancing that workers aren't working in to closer proximity with each other is being seen as a setback rob i mean has this latest outbreak going to affect the real thing. it is troubling especially in a country like south korea where we've had long periods with no local transmission at all and yet with despite its sophisticated testing and tracking mechanisms it's simply seems it can't stop these clusters from from breaking out we had the other cluster a couple of weeks ago based around bars in the ito one district of seoul that caused the authorities here to close down those bars 2 months ago we had call
10:15 am
centers being the focus of concerns because of a cluster that broke out in one of the call centers again of workers working in close proximity with each other so it just highlights the problems of reopening a big sophisticated economy in the kinds of problems that other countries are going to face in europe in the united states for example that don't have the kind of sophisticated testing that south korea has in place that arguably has more of the virus still circulating within their communities rob thank you very much for that robot bride live for us there in seoul in the philippines quarantine measures in the capital manila will start being nice from june after months of us troops locked down that severely depressed economy that's despise 539 new cases being reported on ferries save in largest spike since the 1st scare on a virus infection was reported in january in a televised address president and rehabilitated trying to reassure the nation that the vast majority of cases where mild and that there's been no death rate. in

10:25 am
it appalled the free speech rights of the american people however this is new crackdown instead there will be a review of section 230 of the communications decency act the prevents internet companies from being sued over content and he's calling for the federal communications commission trade commission and state attorneys to look at placing new rules on social media companies to control editing he says to protect free speech but the president does not have the legal authority to strike down section 230 and he may face resistance from the f.t.c. and f.c.c. independent bodies that have been reluctant in the past to take on policing the internet it is talking about a review which implies a period of time it's not clear how much of this is saber rattling right there's things you can do with an executive order those things you can't do there are probably litigation if they did try to do an executive order this is a nuanced complex issue republicans complain about censorship on social media
10:26 am
platforms democrats like house speaker nancy pelosi speaking about facebook on thursday complain there isn't enough both have threatened similar legislation our business model is to misrepresent the facts and to be a platform and to do that and try to hide under freedom of speech which is of course a complete violation of everything freedom of speech stands for both are also stepping into tricky territory about who decides what is acceptable and what isn't and the issue the framers of the constitution were clear about it should not be the government but should be the platforms themselves but i don't think facebook or. in general should be arbiters of truth i think that's kind of a dangerous line to get down to in terms of deciding what is what what is true and what isn't civil liberties advocates warn the private companies have their own commercial priorities and should not become gatekeepers of the truth facebook already censors content in consultation with governments around the world the
10:27 am
