hello, everyone. you're in the "cnn newsroom." i'm don lemon. thanks for joining us. we begin with new developments from libya and a big capture. the most wanted man in libya is in custody right now. saif al islam gadhafi, son of noe notorious dictator, was captured in a gun battle. he's been on the run since tripoli fell to the protesters. cnn's jomana karadesh joins us with more. where and how was he captured? >> reporter: we can put the pieces of this story together. our understanding from military commanders is that it was fighters from the western mountain city of zintan who had
been on the hunt for saif al islam gadhafi in the southern desert. this hunt actually intensified, they tell us, over the past 18 days. these special units receiving information that he was possibly trying to flee to neighboring niger. they narrowed down the border close to niger where they thought he was staying. it was overnight, about 2:00 a.m. local time, a convoy was moving, they tried to intercept that convoy. a gun battle opened up for about two hours. finally they say that saif and members of his entourage, a different number we're hearing, either three or six, surrendered to these fighters and were transferred to the western mountain city of zintan where they're being held. >> was he just trying to leave libya?
>> reporter: well, it's really unclear at this point. they say that they believe he was trying to flee libya. we had also heard from the international criminal court that has been trying to arrest saif al islam gadhafi for alleged crimes against humanity, that he was in indirect contact with them through intermediaries in recent weeks trying to surrender to the international criminal court. and also neighboring niger has been home for his brother, shadi gadhafi, who fled tripoli in august and has been staying there and has been granted asylum. it was possible that he was trying to skooek seek refuge also in niger. >> what's the reaction in tripoli? >> reporter: since the news came out about 12 hours ago, don, the city broke out with celeb brato
gunfire, people honking their horns. most people in tripoli are very happy to hear this. but at the same time, there's a sense of relief because they were worried about the trouble that saif al islam on the run might cause for the stability of libya, there were concerns that he could with other former members of the regime, through hiring mercenaries or other forms, try to destabilize a very fragile new libya. >> is this the last big catch, wholesa who else is out there? >> reporter: well, remaining on that list by the international criminal court is abdullah sanushi, the former head of intelligence in gadhafi's regime. we heard both saif al islam and abdullah had been on the run together around that area in the southern desert.
as far as we were aware, he is still at large and many here also hope that he will be captured soon because they also see him as posing a danger, not as much as gadhafi, but also a danger. >> thank you very much for your reporting. in other news, the penn state football team is on the road playing ohio state today. leaving behind a campus filled with questions over alleged child sex abuse. it's the team's first away game since jerry sandusky was charged with abusing eight boys over a 15-year period. ohio state is being very careful with how it welcomes penn state's team and fans. student athletes made an appeal for sportsmanship. >> they're players. >> be loud, be proud, be respectful. >> back home in state college, pennsylvania, fired head coach joe paterno is facing a major health threat. paterno's family says he's been diagnosed with a treatable form of lung cancer.
paterno was fired for his handling of a 2002 report from a graduate assistant who claimed he saw sandusky raping a boy in a locker room shower. cnn's susan candiotti standing by live for us on the campus. susan, where is jerry sandusky? he was recently spotted in public. >> reporter: yeah, he's rarely been seen in public, don, since those accusations. but there was a sighting of him on friday night as he was pulling out of his house in a car going down the driveway. he briefly rolled down the window and handed out a typed piece of paper in which he said, i have nothing more to say, contact my lawyer. cnn has tried to contact his lawyer today. but we didn't get any calls back. one of the many questions we have for him is, what does jerry sandusky think about the now troubled charity that he founded, the second mile, which now could fold? we heard from its new executive director who's taken over the shop right now. and he announced that because of
this terrible scandal, a lot of the donors are running away and they might not be able to survive. so one of the things they're taking a look at is whether it can survive and whether they might have to try to find other charities to take over this wonderful program for so many children. >> susan, let's get back now to joe paterno. what's been the reaction there since his lung cancer was announced? >> reporter: it's just one more blow to this community. he remains a beloved figure in this town. state college is penn state, penn state is joe paterno. and over at the house today, we saw people stopping by. for example, one woman brought food over to the house and gave a hug to the woman who answered the door and shared a smile. we also ran into, for example, a couple who drove here all the way from hazleton, pennsylvania, about 100 miles away to pay their respects to joe paterno and to wish him well. we spoke with the woman. here's what she said.
>> as far as his health, i just wish that he could go into it with a pleasant mind, mind heals the body, strongly believe that. and the comfort of his family and friends, the positive feedback will help him recover. >> reporter: it's just one more terrible tragedy that has resulted from this investigation, it seems, don. >> speaking of the investigation, you said the ncaa is opening an investigation into the penn state case. that makes how many investigations going on now, susan? >> reporter: boy, it's hard to keep track. you're right. the ncaa investigation is the latest and penn state has to answer many questions from it by december 16th. you also have the ongoing grand jury investigation. the question is, will more possible victims step forward and will that result in more charges? you have the federal department
of education looking into whether penn state violated any rules that might affect whether students here continue to get a federal student aid and you have an internal investigation going on. >> susan candiotti, thank you for your reporting. a syracuse university basketball coach accused of child sex abuse is calling the allegations against him patently false. two former ball boys say bernie fine molested them. >> he started trying to touch me and things like that. honestly, i don't even remember if i thought that was what was supposed to happen. i know i cringed up and didn't want it to happen and i was very like, what's going on? i just remember being disgusted. >> syracuse university says it launch add thorough investigation in 2005 and found
no evidence supporting the accusations. it says police did not pursue the case because the statute of limitations had expired. police have now reopened the case and fine has been put on administrative leave pending the outcome. the associate coach issued this statement on the allegations. he said, sadly, we live in an allegation-based society and an internet age where in a matter of minutes one's lifelong reputation can be severely damaged, i am confident that as in the past a review of these allegations will be discredited and restore my reputation. we'll take an in-depth look at this case with defense attorney holly hughes in about 30 minutes here on cnn. and at 7:00 p.m. eastern, we'll have a live report from syracuse. most of the republican candidates for president taking the stage tonight in iowa. you're looking at a live picture right now. but it is a candidate who isn't there who is making news at this hour. plus this --
i thought those were put out for me. i did it again. no worries, nick.

let's talk a little politics now. as we told you before the break, six republican hopefuls gathering in iowa tonight for the thanksgiving family forumment. it's in des moines. you see mr. newt gingrich on the stage. frank lunts is hosting this event. let's listen in. >> the founding fathers said our rights came from our creator.
it changes everything else. secular is a term that comes from the latin meaning a century. and it basically says, life is very limited. so you might as well get the most you can now. a belief in god is the precise opposite. it's a belief that we are all part of an eternity and that eternity stretches behind us and ahead of us. and therefore, we have to measure what we do within the framework of god's greater plan. a country which has been now since 1963 relentlessly in the courts driving god out of public life shouldn't be surprised at all the problems we have because we've, in fact, attempted to create a secular country which i think is frankly a nightmare. so i think the first step is not -- this is not sectarian. it's not protestant, catholic -- >> former speaker of the house, newt gingrich, speaking there in
iowa. and he's been really rising in the polls lately. it's interesting to hear what he's going to have to say tonight, talking about values, of course. that's what this is. this is a values forum. they don't have a long time to make an impression because the iowa caucuses are coming up on january 3rd. shannon travis is at this thanksgiving family forum in des moines, iowa. let's talk about mitt romney. he's not there tonight. but i hear he is making news. >> reporter: yeah, mitt romney is not here tonight. but as you just mentioned, he is making news. we just found out that he's opening his very first campaign headquarters here in iowa. this is significant, don. he hasn't had a campaign headquarters thus far this political cycle and this suggests that he could possibly be ramping up his activities here in this first in the nation caucus state. i talked with his top political strategist here in the state a little while ago. and he kind of downplayed it and said, we needed a bigger space.
i asked him how big was it? he said it's about 3,000 or 4,000 square feet. it's a large space. this will be received as a major step for mitt romney. we know that he has not been to iowa as much -- nearly as much as the other candidates. one other development, don, that's been happening here, occupy des moines has been protesting -- or earlier they were protesting outside this forum of the six presidential candidates. just a few moments ago, a surprising and potentially jaw-dropping moment happened where the pollster, the moderator, frank lutz stood up and said, we have 3,000 people here, we know some of you in this audience may be occupy protesters. i'm going to let you speak before this forum gets under way in exchange for you not disrupting the proceedings tonight. one man stood up, he did not say whether he was, in fact, with occupy des moines or not. but he had on a black sweatshirt
and a cap and he talked a lot about the federal reverse and talked about wanting to hear some things the occupy protesters often frequently talk about. again, he didn't say that he was with them but it was a jaw-dropping moment in this forum. >> that was pretty smart, get your concerns out now so that you don't interrupt. thank you very much, shannon travis. we'll be watching. tuesday night on cnn, the republican presidential hopefuls will take part in a debate on national security and the economy. it is hosted by cnn's wolf blitzer and co-sponsored by the heritage foundation and the american enterprise stoous institute. make sure you watch it right here, 8:00 p.m. eastern on tuesday. our wolf blitzer is going to join me at 7:00 to talk about the debate and the republican race for the white house. shannon mentioned the occupy movement, occupy wall street is at a major crossroads of major police crackdowns all across the country. i want you to take a look.
[ shouting ] >> those cal davis protesters paid the price for their encounter with police. meantime, back east, police e vift vi evicted demonstrators at the epicenter of the movement. that's new york's zuccotti park. and the police action appears to have worked. the park is mostly empty and quiet today. professor of political science at columbia university joins me now. thanks for joining me. professor, the occupy protesters have lost their gathering spots in many cities. they need a new place to meet, to sleep. have these protests run their course? >> i don't think so, don. in fact, every time there's a lull in the protests, there's a spark of something that happens. usually police brutality of some kind that gets people energized again and gets them motivated and recommitted to the occupy
movement. i think we see this with the uc davis footage and the pepper spray. remember it was pepper spray from a cop early on that actually got around virally on youtube and other places that really blew up the movement in many ways. >> when you look at this video -- and we're playing it now and you see the aftermath of it, people trying to wipe their eyes and clean their faces -- what about this police action we've seen? are police going too far here, in our estimation? >> i think they are. i think this is what happens in most social movements. if we think back to the civil rights movement, we see those images of police brutality against non-violent protesters who are gaging in civil disobedience of some kind. >> are you calling this police brutality or is it police rightfully doing their jobs? you think it's over the line, you think it's brutality? >> i think it's brutality. it's not very different from
fire hoses. when it's a peaceful, non-violent group of people expressing their first amendment rights and they're pepper sprayed for no reason, i think that's over the line. i think most americans probably see that and think the same thing. >> is this where the lack of organized leadership hurts this movement, you think, because -- and makes it harder to reorganize once they have been evicted from parks? they really don't have one singular spokesperson or maybe one famous person who can get on television and lead them and become the face and the voice of the movement. >> i think that's right now still to the advantage of the movement because it makes it so that there aren't any particular targets that opponents of occupy can really focus in on. so it leaves opponents of occupy scrambling to figure out how to undermine or de-legitimize the movement in some way by trying to find some information on a credible leader.
but they can't because there isn't one spokesperson. you have a range of people. i think that's an asset for the movement for now. >> i have been watching the coverage, a lot of coverage on this movement, professor. and you see people talking about -- in the media talking about people having sex, about rapes, about sexual diseases being transmitted, about drugs, about the filth at some of the compounds. there doesn't seem to be an organized, at least, p.r. campaign. they're not watching their p.r. and in many ways, it looks like their p.r. may be outshining them, doing more harm to their movement than good. so i'm not sure what you mean you think -- when you say you think it's good that they don't have one moving target. i think their own p.r. may be harming them in some way. >> that might be true, but here's the flip side of that. now that they're evicted from these places, that argument about what's happening in the parks can't be used anymore. and i'll give you another example. today, a big story was broken by
chris hayes about this memo drawn up for the american association of bankers by a d.c. lobbying group, that the group actually drew up a proposal of $850,000 that they wanted the banking lobby to commit to them to launch a campaign against occupy. so they're taking occupy very seriously and they're figuring a way to undermine them and to ward off any democratic politician connection to the movement leading into the next election cycle. so very, very interesting, even if there's no p.r. for the movement or no coordination, its opponents are very much worried about what the effect of this movement might be. >> it doesn't take an investigation to figure that out. all you have to do is watch the coverage on different networks and you can see what you're talking about. thank you, professor, we appreciate it. >> thank you, don. next, the penn state sex abuse scandal. the mother of one of the alleged victims is speaking out. [ nurse ] i'm a hospice nurse.

that jerry sandusky could be the most hated man in america right now. some believe he dug a digger hole in speaking with nbc earlier this week. >> i shouldn't have showered with those kids. >> so despite what you heard, one of the accusers still fears he won't be believed in the end. the alleged victim's mother spoke with cnn about her son's reaction to sandusky's interview. >> he cried and i said, why are you crying? and he said, because i'm afraid he might go free. >> he's afraid that sandusky might go free? >> yeah. >> so we go now to human behavior expert, dr. wendy walsh. wendy, you and i have been talking about this since this broke and when you and i were on the air. help us understand how this alleged victim could think that sandusky could go free after seeing an interview that many say made sandusky look even
worse? >> well, what we're seeing here, don, is the actual injury of child molestation, which is a big psychological injury. the physical injuries, they're one thing. but the psychological injury is a deep wound that can go on forever, where one feels disempowered, where one feels like a victim, where one may have sex issue, anxiety issues, trust issues, all related to this act. of course they're not going to trust this guy is going to be believed. >> let's listen to one more thing from jerry sandusky. >> are you a pedophile? >> no. >> are you sexually attracted to young boys, to underage boys? >> am i sexually attracted to underage boys? >> yes. >> sexually attracted -- i enjoy young people.
i love to be around them. but, no, i'm not sexually attracted to young boys. >> doctor, i've been wanting to ask you since the interview ran, repeating the question -- as a matter of fact, what did you think of the interview? >> well, that particular repeating the question is a classic clue to whether somebody is lying or not. usually when people lie or very often times they will repeat the question to buy themselves time to give the answer. i would have thought his lawyers would have prepped him for this question. but the fact that it took him 15 seconds to come around to a no is fascinating to me. >> it is fascinating to you and to a lot of people in america. my next question is about some fake photos used in an ad campaign. they showed two men kissing but that's not what's causing the outrage. wait till you see who's puckering up right after the
break. it's right after the break.

causing some controversy. the fabricated picture of president obama smooching hu jintao is sticking around. benetton says they're trying to combat a culture of hatred. >> i love this campaign, i have to say, because it appeals to the young benetton demographic who think of themselves as a global world and who are less homophobic, perhaps. a lot of my followers said on twitter they didn't like that they were kissing. maybe it's the erotic inference. i think the best thing for benetton is that the vatican got mad. madonna sold lots of albums based on the vatican getting mad. >> when i saw it on the internet, i thought they caught
them at an awkward moment, i didn't think it was a big deal. i didn't realize it was fake. i understand what you're saying about the whole sexuality part of it. but can you see why that people find it offensive to tame images of revered public figures and manipulate them into something that is not accurate? >> well f you go on many people's facebook pages and their own website, you'll see lots of world leaders with horns and craziness. people manipulate pictures of celebrities. this week, i found out there are a couple of people impersonating me on dating sites, using my photos. photos are manipulated. when people are public personalities, it sort of comes with the territory. >> okay, dr. wendy walsh. we appreciate it. child sex abuse allegations are being leveled against a coach at syracuse university. how are the two cases different? defense attorney holly hughes tells us after the break. but first, forget black
friday. the christmas shopping season is already under way, but before you buy anything, cnn's christine romans has a look at the most common and most costly mistakes shoppers make. it's this week's edition of "smart is the new rich." >> hello, holiday hype machine. retailers will do whatever they can to separate you from your money, whether you have it to spend or not. so holiday buyers beware. here are five steps to outsmart them. don't open a store credit card. most have very high interest rates and credit limits are too low. even applying for them hurts your credit score. that one-time 10% off may not be worth it. if they aren't pushing the store credit card, they're pushing the extended warranty. don't waste your money. >> in fact, you really very seldom should take the extended warranty. probably never. >> mandy walker says your credit card may already cover you. plus -- >> products seldom break during the extended warranty time period which is probably only two or three years past the time
you've bought it and the manufacturers warranty probably lasts the first year. >> gift cards are probably not a great gift. two-thirds of people who get them spend more than the card's face value. so they're basically paying for their own present. unless you know for a fact the recipient wants it and will use it, you're probably buying the retailer a gift. also, be leery of layaway. there are upfront fees. what if the item goes on sale and if you miss a payment, the retailer could cancel the layaway and you'll lose money. and finally, do not pay full price. beware of retailers who jack up a price before lowering it again and hunt through the online sites like retailhenot for coupon codes to plug in for shopping. make it your mission never to pay for shipping. there are always free shipping dea deals around the corner. and don't buy the hype. black friday prices are not always the lowest of the season. in america, we believe in a future

basketball coach molested two bays. holly hughes, a criminal defense attorney, joins me now. holly, two former ball boys for the syracuse basketball team who are stepbrothers, told cnn bernie fine abused them repeatedly in the 1980s and 1990s. >> you moved away and didn't say anything because you didn't feel like you're capable of saying anything. he's a god to you. not with me, i didn't feel right about it. i told him that, bernie, please don't do that to me. and then he'd do it again and again. >> so, holly, does the statute of limitations apply here? >> it will to specific acts that happened 20-some years ago. but typically in the ped feelop cases is there are specific acts. they're hoping to bring forth new victims and typically a lot
of times if there's a repressed memory and a young person doesn't remember being molested, the statute of limitations will not start to run until such time as they recall that and make that initial outcry. >> i want to read this because i think this is important. this is a statement that fine issued. he said, sadly we live in an allegation-based society and an internet age where in a matter of minutes one's lifeloing reputation can be severely damaged. i'm confident that as in the past a review of these allegations will be discredited and restore my rep designation. if these accusations are found to be without warrant, what legal options would fine have to clear his name here? >> well, at this point what he's going to have to do is go the civil route. if they say these are completely unfounded, he may be able to sue these accusers for defamation of character, for slander, for libel because in order to be able to prove those things in court, you have to prove they were published, that they were mode known. and obvious, we're talking about it on national tv.
clearly these accusations were made public. these things against his reputation. and i think this is distinguishable, i want to point out, this is distinguishable because these investigations were reported at the time. they were investigated by the police and by several different newspapers. we know the news media outlets have great investigative reporters. nothing was ever found. they were unfounded accusations at the time. so this isn't something where it was never reported to the police and never looked into and we also know for a fact, statistically speaking, pedophilia is not a one-time thing. what we see in the penn state scandal is multiple victims coming out of the woodwork and we're not seeing that here, don. >> in this particular case. it's important to talk about syracuse's response to the allegations. they said they launched an investigation the first time bobby davis came forward in 2005 and found no proof of hit claims. so s.u. has put fine on administrative pending the new investigation. how is this case different than
the penn state? is it because you said that all of the authorities, you believe, got involved at the time -- >> right, absolutely. they went directly to the police. when these boys reported it or they were men when they finally reported it. they went forward and said, this is happening, the police department did get involved, they conduct add full investigation. the university conducted an investigation. several news media outlets conducted investigations. and in all of that, they didn't turn up any additional victims. we know that pedophiles are not going to abuse one or two boys. and these are stepbrothers making the accusations and then stop. somewhere, somebody would have turned up another victim alleging to have been abused. >> i've heard the average pedophile has more than 100 victims in his or her lifetime. >> yes, sadly. >> our next case involves a brutal police beating caught on tape. here's how it all started. wait till you see how it ended. that's next. you have options. you can attend our online program or if you prefer a classroom experience...
here it is. here's the surveillance video, the camera in the parking garage caught it all. it's at a hotel and capturing the scene. it was february 13th. you see him kicking the guy. you can see the officer tackled the suspect, which was a car thief. another officer then kicks him repeatedly in the head. then the officer can be seen giving each other a congratulatory chest bump after they finish. the police chief says the officers did use excessive force and fired them. a special prosecutor is considering filing charges. so, holly, was this a crime? >> absolutely, on the part of the police officers, yes, absolutely. there's no doubt about it. it's multiple crimes. what you have is an aggravated assault, a battery, you probably have aggravated battery, too, depending on how much damage they did to this man. once he's down and he's confined, there's no need to continue to kick him in the
head. if they've done anything like permanent damage, permanent hearing loss, he lost a tooth, he has some kind of scar or disfiguri disfiguring, it raises it to the level of aggravated battery. >> the beating was bad. but then there is the chest bump after. if charges are filed, will the chest bump and the sort of congratulatory thing play into the case? >> absolutely. they're not going to then be able to take the stand and say, we were in fear for our lives. this suspect run, he resisted he, he obstructed officers, he hit my partner so we lost our heads momentarily, the adrenaline is pumping, we cuffed him, we went a little too far. they can't say that now. when you finish beating the heck out of somebody and then do a chest bump, you're proud of yourself. that's a high-five. >> it's not like a football game. the officer wrote in his report that he thought the suspect was armed. he wasn't.
will that notation play into the case? will that make a difference? >> with respect to everything that happens up until the point that that man is held on the ground by one police officer and the other one is kicking his head in, that's not going to help the officers defend themselves. once you have him down and he can't move and your partner is holding them down, you don't get to kicking his head like it's a soccer ball. that's excessive force. >> holly, thank you very much. do you remember the rapper fat joe? >> no. fat albert, yes, fat joe, no. i can't help you. >> fat joe, lean back. well, he used to celebrate being overweight. now he's making it his mission to slim down. while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult.
