3:00 am
buenos dias. good morning and welcome to your "new day." i'm boris sanchez. >> i'm christi paul. police are on the hunt for a man who caused a panic at the atlanta airport. >> run. >> the latest on that accidental gun discharge that sent passengers running as you see there. they spilled out even on to the tarmac. a sprawling winter storm
3:01 am
blanketing much of the eastern united states as millions prepare to travel for the thanksgiving holiday. we're tracking all the latest weather for you. consolidating power. the efforts by republican legislatures to pursue new congressional maps and what it means for the 2022 midterms. >> chinese state media releasing a new video they claim shows missing tennis star peng shuai alive and well, but there's a lot of unanswered questions. >> so grateful that you're with us this sunday, november 21st. good morning, christi. >> good morning to you. we are always -- it's always good to know we're not alone, right, boris? even if it's early on a sunday. this was a crazy scene, the day yose and confusion at the
3:02 am
busiest airport in the u.s. atlanta police are looking for the man who escaped hartsfield-atlanta international airport after his weapon discharged. >> the gun went off yesterday afternoon at a security checkpoint, and it sparked fears of an active shooter. that temporarily grounded flights. the incident sent frightened travelers scrambling as you can see in these videos. thousands of people running through the terminals, leave behind their luggage and loved ones. >> heard somebody say active shooter. get out. and that's when everyone starts running away really hard. people were dropping their bags. into everyone was dropping their suitcases, folks were running in any possible direction away from what we thought was the center of action. people were sliding under rails and jumping over barricades, just trying to get out of what we thought was harm's way. >> people just came flying through and were like run, run,
3:03 am
run. then people were just running. and we all just ran outside this door right here and made our way across to the side of the airport. it was organized chaos. >> authorities have identified a suspect, though he did get away from the scene. mad yo romero reports. >> reporter: a terrifying event saturday afternoon at the busiest airport in the u.s. after a paerp's gun goes off. travelers were lined up at the main checkpoint at atlanta's hartsfield-atlanta international airport when the sound of a gunshot sparked panic. crowds scrambled and spilled outside of the terminal. >> he was at the main security checkpoint but i don't know where he was traveling to. >> reporter: authorities say a perform reached inside of his bag after a tsa agent began
3:04 am
searching it and in doing so discharged the firearm. >> keep going. keep going. >> reporter: authorities said in a press conference after the discharge the man was able to flee the security checkpoint with the firearm. they identified the passenger as 42-year-old kenny wells. >> we have taken out warrants for carrying a concealed weapon at a commercial airport, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, discharging a firearm, and reckless conduct. we are actively pursuing this individual as we speak. >> reporter: three people were injured as other passengers scrambled to flee the scene. atlanta police provided details about the three injuries saying one person requested ems from a fall that occurred away from the screening area and two others complained of shortness of breath. the tsa says its officers have found more than 450 firearms at atlanta checkpoints so far in 2021 and the tsa reports catching 4,650 firearms at
3:05 am
checkpoints nationwide in the first ten months of this year. a majority of those weapons were loaded. nadya romero, cnn, atlanta. >> thanks to nadya romero for that report. the scene was complicated because of so much travel for the holiday. as thanksgiving travelers hit the road the tsa announced friday was the highest checkpoint volume for a single day since the start of the covid-19 pandemic. more than 2 million airline travelers screened across the united states. >> despite breaking pandemic records, air travel is still a bit shy of the more than 2.5 million screened on the same day in 2019. we know this year the agency expects more than 20 million people to travel over a ten-day thanksgiving period. if you are one of them please be careful out there. the significant storm system that we're talking about is moving through parts of the country and it could cause some travel head wakes for a lot of people, boris. >> let's get to allison chinchar
3:06 am
live from the weather center. yesterday we were talking about packing your patience because there are going to be some head aches out there. >> it's all going to start today. we have a variety of things to talk about. snow, rain and very windy conditions. if you've flown before wind is going to be the biggest of those three concerns in terms of flying, but driving all of these are going to likely have impacts. in terms of flying, minneapolis, chicago, cincinnati stretching down to memphis, those are going to be your big delay spots in the first half of the day. by tonight, houston, atlanta, d.c., new york and boston because that's where the storm begins to make its way by tonight. we do also have some areas of showers and thunderstorms in south florida unrelated to the main system but that could cause some delays in miami. here's a look at where the system is expected to be by about 4:00 today. moving through cincinnati, starting to push through nashville, little rock around pittsburgh. by tonight this is where you start to see it head towards charlotte, atlanta and morning time tomorrow that really begins to peak for a lot of east coast
3:07 am
city, like boston, new york, even towards philadelphia and washington, d.c. but that system finally moves out by late monday. the wind starts to set up and because of it you're going to have pretty intense lake-effect snow bands. if you have to drive through those areas keep that in mind. the wind monday we're talking about. the strong crosswind over the lakes, but this next system moving in for the middle of the week is the one we're concerned about causing some really big airline delays, especially for chicago, st. louis, stretching all the way down to dallas, boris and christi, because of how strong those winds are expected to be. >> actually planning to head to the airport in a couple hours, so i may be sitting at the bar for a while -- >> back the patience. >> indulging in liquid patience for sure. allison chinchar, thank you very much. >> everybody be warned if you see boris in the airport, right. all right. the cdc is recommending that everyone 18 and older get a third dose of the pfizer or moderna covid vaccines six months after their second shot.
3:08 am
this is really good news ahead of obviously all the holidays as new covid cases are climbing in some hot spots across the country. one being michigan. cdc data shows it's having the worst covid outbreak in the nation. cases rising at an alarming rate and hospitals are starting to feel the pressure. dr. rob davidson has been gracious to be with us through this pandemic and help us understand what's happening where he is. he's an emergency room physician in west michigan and the executive director of the committee to protect public health. the headline i saw in "the detroit free press" this morning was that your state is the worst, that the hospitals are pushed to capacity, the number of covid patients climbed almost 50% in the last month. so bring us into your experience right now. what are you seeing at the hospital? >> listen, for us in west michigan, it's been three or four weeks like this. we've kind of led the state, unfortunately, in these grim
3:09 am
statistics. our hospitals have been full. we've had at least two weeks where every shift i go in there's a quarter to half of the emergency department that i work in is filled with patients waiting for beds that don't exist. truly our icu capacity and entire system throughout the west side of the state is at about 140% of what its maximum would be. we've expanded capacity, you know, so we can take on all those patients, but it's, you know, who knows where this is going to go. we've got thanksgiving, cold weather, we've got christmas. we're all looking at the peak hopefully being some time around christmas, but that's another, you know, five weeks from now. it's been a challenge. >> it feels like deja vu, it sounds like it because i feel like we had this conversation last year heading into christmas, that we were expecting this holiday peak. i think most people cannot begin to imagine what this is like for your medical teams. how are they holding up right now? >> so, a couple things.
3:10 am
we certainly have had staff leave through the pandemic because of being stressed out over work and that's put a crunch on the number of hours people are working. what i have seen and want to impress upon people the comradery between different services. er vets working the icu, nursing going from ob down to the er. it's been truly amazing to see everyone kind of, you know, circle the wagons and take care of the folks we need to take care of. you know, that probably gets to a point where it can't go on any longer. i hope we don't get to that point and really the message is please get vaccinated, please be safe if you're not vaccinated because, you know, it's just no telling where we go next. >> so as i understand it again, the reason for a good chunk of this besides the fact that we're in the season where people often will get ill, but the majority of the people there, that are there for covid r unvaccinated? >> yeah.
3:11 am
we're looking at around 90%. if you look at the people on ventilators, 97% are unvaccinated. even the folks vaccinated, anyone i've seen are people who have had their last dose of the vaccine more than six months ago. some of them already qualify for boosters and one person i talked to was about to get her booster and got tested had a sniffle and had koid covid. wasn't terribly sick. didn't get admitted to the hospital. but this is why this decision by the cdc and fda telling us that everybody over 18 is so critically important we need people to do that. >> dr. rob davidson, we always think of you and appreciate everything that all of you are doing to keep everybody safe and healthy. thank you so much. best of luck to you. happy thanksgiving. >> thanks. same to you. still ahead on "new day," gaming the system, how some say the republican party is stacking the deck in its favor he ahead of the crucial 2022 midterms.

3:17 am
have enabled legislators to safely ignore the people who elected them and these maps, they're more of the same. >> reporter: and some minority groups are furious at both the gop and the governor. >> these maps are illegal and a per version of justice that cannot stand. >> reporter: across the country, the fierce fight over drawing new election maps in the wake of the census favors republicans who control more legislatures and governorships and political analysts say the new maps alone could help them pick up the five seats they need to take back the majority in congress. for example, explosive growth in principally the latino population has given texas two new congressional seats, but while republican lawmakers say -- >> the maps were drawn blind to race. >> reporter: their new maps have white voters in the majority in three times as many districts as latinos.
3:18 am
>> if we don't take -- pay attention to this and we don't demand that latinos are represented, we will find ourselves with no representation. >> reporter: in ohio, the republican party won almost 55% of the vote a year ago, but the new map could hand them 12 congressional seats, the democrats 3. >> of our red wave is coming at you like a freight train. >> reporter: north carolina is about evenly split, but a new map would give republicans such an edge, long-serving congressman g.k. butterfield will not seek re-election in his once reliably blue district. >> it will disadvantage african-american communities all across the first congressional district. >> reporter: and in georgia, where democratic incumbents hold just 6 of 14 seats in the house of representatives, the new map pits two of the dems against each other. >> and almost certainly the courts will decide a lot of these questions.
3:19 am
tom foreman, cnn, washington. >> thanks, tom. let's talk to someone who has fwn been following the redistricting maps. ana, thanks for joining us in this morning. governor mike dewine signed into law this congressional map drawn by republican lawmakers and makes it more likely, perhaps not coincidently for republicans to win 13 of 15 districts in 2022. critics argued it was an unfair process, some claiming it dilutes the power of minority voters. is there evidence that race played a role in drawing this new map? >> well, republicans say that they didn't look at race when drawing the maps, but democrats and some voting rights groups have a very different opinion. if you take hamilton county in the southwest corner of our state where cincinnati is,
3:20 am
republicans will tell you that for the first time in 100 years the city of cincinnati is in one district, that's true, but the county is split into three different districts and what they're arguing is by splitting it into three different districts you've divided up the black community in that area and into those three separate districts and sort of diluted their vote there. they call it cracking, packing and cracking, and up in northeast ohio, representative stephanie house, a state house representative here, made the point that oakwood, the cleveland suburb and a predominantly black neighborhood got split, where the two whiter neighborhoods near oakwood were not split. they were kept in the same district. >> so the republicans have argued that no seats changed party hands in a decade, and that this new map makes for more competitive races. do you get the sense that
3:21 am
they're really out to make it more competitive? >> well, i think it depends on how you define competitive. they define it within eight points, so 46 to 54. but when you look at what that means, so like in district 10 which is southwest ohio, that's a difference of 54,000 votes in favor of the republicans. what democrats say, that's a big hill to climb so technically falls in the window of what you might define as competitive but it would take a wave election year where everything broke in the democrats' favor. that's why they say look, we really think this map is 13-2. >> so it seems like this entire process is going to wind up being redone again in 2024. the map was passed without support from democrats according to ohio law, they have to blow it up and start again. do you get the sense the process may play out differently in 2024? >> i think it depends on who is
3:22 am
in charge in 2024 and i think the republicans are banking on that being them. yeah, the four-year maps were supposed to be sort of the stick, like, you know, that incentivized lawmakers to create a bipartisan map, but it actually ended up being like a way for them to pass it without bipartisan support. >> so in terms of what legal challenges are out there, do you anticipate that any of them might stick? is there any path for some of these voting rights groups or critics of the new map to take to try to make change happen? >> well, they have three options. so they have a federal lawsuit which would be like the voting rights, the arguments of the minority communities, then there would be a state constitutional challenge, and then the third option actually is because this was an actual bill that passed through our legislature, voters can collect snurs for a r
3:23 am
referendum. we'll have to wait and see what path they take and challenge it at the federal amnesty level. >> we've heard around the country members of congress announced they're not going to seek reelection because of redistricting and congressional maps that make it difficult for them to get elected. have you heard from any members of congress in ohio that may opt out of running because of a difficult primary or process to get elected with these new maps? >> not yet, however, marcy capture, keep in mind the longest serving woman in congress, had the famous snake on the lake district here, the way it configures for her now, it's a pretty challenging road for her, given the way the district is shaped. so we'll have to kind of see how that goes for her. >> we appreciate you walking us through that and we know you will be watching this story. thanks so much. >> thank you. so a community in upstate

in this morning's legal brief an admitted rapist will not spend any time in prison for his crimes. 20-year-old chris belter was given eight years probation for sexually assaulting four teenage girls during several parties hosted at his parents' house. according to wkbw belter has to register as a sex offender. the judge in the case, matthew murphy, reportedly retiring next month, saying he, quote, agonized over the case and included that incarceration would be inappropriate.
3:29 am
one of his victims warns they believes belter will rape again. >> i don't believe it for one second. i will have to live with this for the rest of my life knowing that he's walking the streets and that another girl can be a victim of his his any day now. it's sterrifying. i don't think we'll find that closure until we know that he's locked up and the judge failed thus. he is putting us through hell. >> reporter: in moments after the sentencing an attorney for one of belter's victims expressed his frustration with the judge's leniency. >> he is privileged, he comes from money, he is white. he's being sentenced as an adult appropriately. and for an adult to get away with these crimes without doing jail time, is unjust. >> civil rights attorney and cnn illegal analyst areva martin. let's listen together here first
3:30 am
of all from the judge when he was sentencing christopher belter. >> i agonized, i -- i'm not ashamed that to say that i actually prayed over what is the appropriate sentence in this case because there was great pain, there was great harm. there were multiple crimes committed. >> this is a man who has admitted, christopher belter, admitted that he did this. he pled guilty. these were felony charges. he's charged as an adult. what's your gut reaction to all of this? >> really outraged, christie. unbelievable, incomprehensible statements by this judge, an abuse of his authority clearly p but we've seen this before. i wish i could say this is a first. it's not. we've seen many instances where white, wealthy defendants are given lighter sentences or no
3:31 am
sentences at all and merely because of their privilege, merely because of their sosh year economic status and this is a prime example of that. when you think of ethan couch whose defense team introduced this whole concept because he had been raised without consequences because of his wealth he didn't deserve to be pushed because of his crime. we're seeing that play out in this case. what's devastating for me as a mother of two daughters, is the involvement of the parents. the parents have also been charged. they apparently gave the four victims alcohol, marijuana and encouraged and somehow participated in endangering the lives of these teenagers. >> we should point out, the mother, the stepfather and a family friend are pleading not guilty to misde peener charges of child endangerment and unlawfully dealing with a child. what evidence needs to be present to convict those parents
3:32 am
if even if they're not convicted, obviously there's an issue within the family here, at least on the surface it looks like. allegedly. >> yeah. i think the evidence that apparently has come forward in this trial is evidence that he provided alcohol to minors, they provided perhaps even marijuana to minors, they created the environment, that they were knowledgeable of the fact that their son was sexually assaulting girls in their home, and that they did nothing about it. so i think there's sufficient evidence -- only there was sufficient evidence to constitute probable cause, to justify and arrest in these cases with respect to the mother, the stepfather and as you said an adult friend of the family, but this notion of justice in our country has been under the spotlight this week and we see it that there is a dual justice system and in this case both implicit and explicit bias working in favor of this
3:33 am
defendant. >> police say that the adults in that home actually -- this is from police, that they groomed the girls for sexual assault. i want to listen to -- i'll tell you, we don't have the sound, belter's attorney argued that his client is, quote, tremendously remorseful for what he's done, and he went on to say this, there are clients never able to empathize with their victims no matter how much counseling they receive. chris isn't one of them. do you think that assertion had anything to do with this sentence, and do you think this is a man who is still a danger? >> i'll answer both questions and say the statement of remorse should not have had anything to do with whether he was held accountable. our criminal justice system sometimes will allow victims -- i mean defendants in this case, their actions, their conduct can be a mitigating factor but should not have been a sufficient factor to allow him
3:34 am
to avoid punishment for his admitted crimes. whether he's dangerous or not, we heard from the victim, absolutely she thinks he's dangerous. he does not face the same kind of sentence or punishment that someone without his wealth, without his status, without his, you know, whiteness would face, i think is a horrible statement about a criminal justice system and sends a horrible statement to him that he can engage in this kind of conduct again without fear of consequence. >> i'm running out of time, a quick yes or no, do you believe civil charges could be forthcoming? >> absolutely. >> areva martin, we appreciate it so much. >> the judge could have gave him eight years in prison and gave him eight years probation. thank you, ma'am. >> thanks, christi. we should note areva will be with us next hour to discuss the ahmaud arbery case as well. stay tuned for that, and now

3:40 am
interview followed by a full documentary happening in december. >> here's a clip newly released of camera crews with rittenhouse after the verdict was announced. watch this. >> the jury reached the correct verdict, self-defense is to the illegal, and i believe they came to the correct verdict and i'm glad that everything went well. it's been a rough journey, but we made it through it. >> joining us is chief media correspondent and host of "reliable sources" brian stelter. good morning. one of rittenhouse's defense attorneys said that he was uncomfortable with the access and the cameras. how was fox news able to get all this behind-the-scenes footage? >> right. then the attorney talked about the crowd funded nature of the defense, saying the people that were donating money, that that was a part of the reason why the camera crews were there. the implication, of course, that this was all about fundraising
3:41 am
and about financing the legal defense for kyle rittenhouse and raised questions about whether fox news was helping fund the defense in order to get camera crews behind the scenes. fox news defying that saying in a statement neither fox, tucker carlson or tuck ir carlson's made any payments in the production this was documentary episode about the trial. so fox is saying hey, we are not part of the fundraising, but what rittenhouse's attorney is saying that that the existence of this camera crew and documentary was about the fundraising effort, was a way to show donors where their money is going. so it's a really interesting example of how the far right media is tied up with this trial, tied up with this case, and helping turn rittenhouse into an absolute hero on the right. this is something, you know, that we've now ended one phase because the trial is over, but, you know, i don't think kyle rittenhouse is going to be leaving the public eye any time
3:42 am
soon. this fox documentary won't even come out until next month. >> it's interesting, brian, because his attorney said on friday, he expects him to get out of the spotlight and to move away for his own safety. this is counter to that completely. >> yeah. that's a good point. this is counter to that. the most interesting thing i thought the attorney said, he needs to learn how to say no to people. you're an 18-year-old surrounded by all these voices, older voices, some of whom don't have your best intents at heart and that is going to be a real challenge. >> good point. brian stelter, always appreciate you, getting up early, thank you so much. you see brian all over our news all the time or catch him on his show at 11:00 a.m. "reliable sources." auto after the break, there's reported new video of chinese tennis star peng shuai surfacing ahead of the women's tennis association, though, says it is not enough to prove that
