the stomach until she miscarried. castro ordered knight to deliver amanda berry's baby. after the baby was born he is baby stopped breathing. and castro threatened to kill her if the baby did not survive. >> i'm thinking this guy is not going to have a good time in prison. >> stephanie: this girl who knows nothing about childhood was able to deliver a baby. he initially chained them all in the basement and then freed them to allow them to live up stairs. most of the time they would be in separate rooms.
7:11 am
he would often test the young women by pretending to leave and then suddenly return and if there were any indication they had been moved he would punish them. something must have clicked for berry on monday evening with the help of castro's neighbors, berry freed herself, her six year old daughter and the two other women. that took some incredible courage, because you have to have stockholm syndrome. i think they must have lost hope that they would ever get out of there because they were so scared. talking about the neighbors for many years -- they were talk about him walking down the street saying hello and god
7:12 am
bless to everybody. the crowds of people couldn't help but ask themselves how could they not know what was going on. he regularly played spanish music after hours. sometimes allowed the local kids to ride his atv. mostly he kept to himself or hung out with his brothers. one of the brothers was called the drunk guy, because he would ride around the neighborhood drunk on his bike. when he returned home, he would always walk out the back door. i never saw him enter the front door. he said i just thought he was odd. so we were talking about the -- the one gal that was 20 when she disappeared. they were saying -- you know they probably should have investigated more. they thought she was just a run

7:18 am
prefers the death penalty. she didn't believe she committed first degree murder. it was unexpected for me because there was no premeditation on my part. >> yeah. >> stephanie: also she told the station she would prefer to die sooner rather than later, as death is the ultimate freedom. this is the arias trial yesterday -- >> state of arizona versus josi arias verdict count 1, we do find the defendant count 1 as to first degree murder guilty. >> and that was the family of the victim who gasped. >> i hope now they are able to find piece. >> stephanie: his family. >> huh uh-huh. >> stephanie: some grizzly details. nineteen minutes after the hour.

7:40 am
boston. >> stephanie: no, there's some dispute over the law, a straight reading of the law said because he was pronounced dead in boston, that boston would be obligated to durry him. but he was not a boston resident though. >> i think the whole thing is wicked retarded. >> stephanie: yes, thank you jim. the widow of the boston marathon bombing suspect, that is a weird story. what causes you to marry a douche like that? >> i heard she was cia. but that could be a rumor. >> stephanie: probably jim but thanks for that incite. >> are you trafficking those websites that just throw that out willie nilly. >> it would be. >> i can't prove that she's not. >> stephanie: when did you stop

7:42 am
>> stephanie: right. all of this other news is gross sexy stuff that we can't look away from. but it's not just the one story of the five-year-old that shot his two-year-old cyst we are his own rifle that his parents bout him -- anyway. tom my christopher writes recent events like the shooting of the two-year-old -- at least we can all agree it's a problem. not exactly. a five year old owning a gun can be a reason for current people scoff at. i don't think this is something anyone would disagree on and yet there i was on cnn last week arguing with gail trotter. >> you should hand an ak 47 to
7:43 am
infants right as they are born. >> it has a lot of recoil though -- >> stephanie: and there is a cartoon -- it's called cricket, and there's a little cartoon cricket there. isn't a that cute. in april in addition to the shooting by the five-year-old brother, there were at least 12 other shootings of children. the nra opposes laws that would require safe storage on the grounds that it's not the government's role to mandate this. 40% of gun-owning households with children store their gun unlocked. the nra says such laws would render home owners defenseless
7:44 am
in the event of a home invasion. so you have to have it always out and loaded and ready -- how about pediatricians? the nra is fighting that as well. pediatricians play a key role by providing guidance to parents. individuals who receive physician counseling were more likely to report the adoption of one or more safe gun storage passages. who would object to such a beneficial arrangement? >> the nra. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> stephanie: yes! former president said we take our children to the doctor because they are sick or need health care. we don't take them there for political dialogue. >> the constitution doesn't say anything about children having
7:45 am
firearms -- >> stephanie: right. they don't even have a fully formed exoskeleton. >> exco skeleton? >> stephanie: i didn't pay attention in school. that is also their position on a 2011 florida law that made it illegal -- the nra is pushing similar laws in other states as well. unfortunately they also lobbied their way into the affordable care act. the president had to include in his 23 executive actions that, quote unquote, it doesn't not
7:46 am
address doctors talking about firearms in their homes. keeping a gun locked and unloaded have protective effects of 73% and 70% respectively in prevenning of accidents and suicide in children. tommy christopher finishes their concern about privacy doesn't really wash. could it be that while discussing gun safety pediatricians may also offer the best safety is never have a gun in the home. and that's it. that's what it is all about for them. gun sales. so that's why -- literally that's -- 40% of households with guns do not keep them locked or unloaded. so -- you know unbelievable. 47 minutes after the hour.

8:09 am
twenty-nine times you had to defend yourself. >> stephanie: to listen to you say that when you think of nicole brown -- exactly. plus can i just say -- i don't know if this is considered a special circumstance legally, but she is an oversharer. the sex details. really? really? >> oversharer. >> stephanie: she is an oversharer marsha clark. >> seventeen days she spent on the witness stand. >> stephanie: right. what was the point of all of these sexual details -- legally did she think that somehow -- because obviously her story after a day of sex and he became engaged somehow -- i guess that was the theory, right? >> yeah, the theory was he was abusive to her and that he made her do all kind of unnatural acts and then she was like afraid of him. and the problem with
8:10 am
that -- because she detailed all of these things he was making her do quote unquote. the problem it appears from the emails and texts that this was something she was offering to do in a way to hang on to him because he was wanting to break up with her. that's not abuse by him -- >> stephanie: right. that's trying to get away from a crazy person in my own professional opinion -- marsha we were talking about -- authorities said alexander fought for his life but soon grew too weak to defend himself. jim thought he had heard that he was shot first and then stabbed postmortem -- what is the truth there? >> well from the testimony -- >> stephanie: you are dropping out a little bit. say again.
8:11 am
>> okay. let me try again. the coronor stayed he was stabbed first, and he based that opinion on the fact that there was very little if any bleeding as a result to a gunshot wound to the head. when you die there is no more blood pressure. so that's his theory. i'm not sure -- and i bet there would be other -- that where he was shot in the head didn't produce much bleeding and that [ inaudible ] blood by coughing and then she stabbed him. so he was not incapacitated by the shot. he was still very much alive. and she then proceeded to stab him repeatedly. so i'm not sure whether they are going to explore that inconsistency -- the police officers certainly thought she had shot him first and then
8:12 am
stabbed him. it's reasonable to think that. and especially you are a woman, you are much smaller than the man and you take him down by shooting him first. but they are going to show regardless that he was not incapacitated by the shot and her stab wounds inflicted incredible cruelty. >> stephanie: there was also as you say in legal circumstances an incredible coincidence that the exact same gun used to shoot him was stolen from her grandparent's house. >> and a 25. >> stephanie: yeah, that was part of her story, right, that she ran and got it in his closet in self-defense -- >> yes, that was her story, and all of his friends -- i said did

you ever see him with a gun in never. did you ever see one in his apartment? never. travis never had a gun. >> stephanie: yeah, and as you say there was nothing to cooperate that she was physically abused, right? >> no, nothing. a lot of her story relied upon her alone to believe her. she claims that she journaled which if anyone things that journalling is a cure for mental issues i would point to jody arias and say not necessarily. >> stephanie: it's another way of oversharing. >> and she is planning to overshare again, she is planning to write a manifesto.

8:15 am
didn't believe that nicole was battered. a more shocking conclusion from someone who supposedly was the leading expect in the field, they didn't call her. they never tried to claim she wasn't battered. so yeah, you can get an expert to say almost anything. i was unimpressed with their experts. and everything that you had to believe in terms of his being abusive to her was something you had to take her word for. there was no corroboration. so she claimed when she was journalling, when she wrote things about him that was unflattering, he forced her to tear out the pages. really? what proof do we have? why don't we know they were
8:16 am
pagings that were unflattering to you? >> stephanie: and she lied before and after but insisted she she was telling the truth in court. >> yeah, and she remembered vividly everything before the event and then it is a fog. really? you're going with a fog? [ laughter ] >> stephanie: yes, she prefers the death penalty. what do you think is going to happen here? >> i don't know. this is the problem -- every -- this is the problem until you talk to any people who object to the death penalty. here is one of the reasons why. in every jurisdiction you are going to have different sensibilities in the community. in los angeles we might not even
8:17 am
have requested the death penalty, let alone the jury decide it. in los angeles i think you probably wouldn't even find a jury to sentence her to death. arizona is a more conservative place. and they requested the death penalty, and that community might very well sentence her to death. >> stephanie: well if joe arpaio had anything to say -- >> joe arpaio was the one who let her do the interview yesterday. >> yes. >> stephanie: marcia could we just put her in a cell with ariel castro? can you sometimes be creative in your sentencing? work it out for yourselves. >> i like it. it is creative. >> stephanie: right?

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: even the supreme court, doug, you have talked about that obviously there is so much focus on the civil rights cases coming up, which are important, but we're not even paying attention to how unbelieve i will business friendly this court has gotten right? >> it is really the biggest story about the supreme court under john roberts. we focus on the hot button social issues of civil rights cases, et cetera, but the story, and this is just empirically nailed down is how friendly this court is to corporations, and how they are protecting corporations from all sorts of
8:36 am
suits that the conservative majority doesn't like which are basically any effort by consumers, by cell phone holders, subscribers to cable companies, any efforts by consumers to get justice when they are defrauded by big corporations. >> stephanie: basically it's a story as you write about the chamber of commerce continued success before the roberts court generally. >> that's right. the chamber of commerce in the early '80s was winning about 40% of the cases. that went up to the mid-40s in the next court. so like 56% during the period of the rainquist court. and now that percentage has gone up to 69%, so it's over two thirds, and it's
8:37 am
really -- again, the story of the roberts court. the cases aren't always getting the top headlines, but it's happening term after term case after case and it's having a real impact on the way justice is happening in america. >> stephanie: yeah it's a good thing they don't have anyone chained in their basement. you write please tell us what fresh horror awaiting us? >> again it's simply that -- the chamber of commerce has filed 18 briefs this term meaning they -- they are in about a quarter of the supreme court's cases, most of those cases have yet to be decided, some of them are very important, and it's just -- you know it's kind of a -- a steady process which the ability of consumers and -- and citizens to go to court to get justice
8:38 am
particularly against corporations get eroded so there's another ten rulings or so this term that will be decided, probably along the same idealogical lines, most of them and those cases kind of cumulatively will make it really hard for -- consumers -- victims of corporate misconduct of all sorts to get justice in our court system. >> stephanie: you wrote another piece where you say on any given day the court of appeals has the ability to throw the environmental movement into complete disarray. tells about that. i was with senator boxer after the inauguration and she was so excited about the president talking about environmental issues. tell us about this. >> yeah, everyone knows about the supreme court. there are obviously courts of
8:39 am
appeal across the country. the most important is the u.s. court of appeals for the district of columbia circuit. it's a feeder court to the supreme court. five or so of the current justices started their career on the d.c. circuit. so it's often where you put people you want to nominate to the supreme court, but it's also conservatives, particularly in the reagan and bush administrations have packed that court with very conservative justices. and they have made major efforts to combat air pollution. they struck down a bill which required companies to alert employees of their right to
8:40 am
unionize. they basically called into question everything the national labor relations board and the consumer financial protection board have done on the grounds that the way president obama put members on those boards was somehow unconstitutional. so it's -- it's incredibly powerful court that decides really big issues about environmental law, and consumer law, and the court is dominate comboifd ed by conservatives. >> stephanie: what do you think -- before you go doug just curious on prop 8 and doma? >> oh, i don't know. i think it's -- right, we're getting incredibly important three big civil rights cases coming up.
8:41 am
i don't know dish was more kind of uncertain what the outcome was going to be after the oral argument than i was before. i do think that there's -- i think that -- i don't think they will uphold either prop 8 or doma, but i don't know -- but i could easily see a procedural ruling or narrower ruling than i think people want. >> stephanie: yeah, that's what my friends were telling me that were in the courtroom. doug always greet check in with you on this important stuff in the midst of our important crime stories.
