12:01 pm
600 miles per hour in 20 seconds. and this was a test run. why would anyone do this? that is all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b" today. first from fox at 3:00 in new york city, a bombshell development in the aftermath of the colorado movie massacre. sources say that the suspected kill are may have tried to warn somebody about the deadly plan. the message did not get through until it was over. law enforcement tell that james holmes mailed a notebook to the university of colorado psychiatrist. they say it was filled with details of how he was going to kill people including sick figure drawings and illustrations of the coming bloodbath. but the notebook sat unopened in the school's mailroom. under clear for how long. one official tells fox the package had been this since july 12, a week before the attack. another source could not confirm
12:02 pm
if it was there before the rampage. we are told investigators discovered the notebook on monday during a search of the campus mailroom following reports of suspicious packages. fox news reported from the scene on monday. at that point, no one had this information. it is an exclusive. mike tobin is with us in aurora, colorado, this afternoon. what else do we know of the notebook? >>reporter: it was found on the day when we were reporting on the suspicious packages. the bomb squad investigated the packages. in building 500, which we showed you the video, before, the feds got a search warrant to search the mailroom. they found a package intended for a psychiatrist inside the university campus, according to authorities. they opened it. they found the notebook. according to legal experts, if this net book contains the detail we think it does, if it made it to that psychiatrist, he would have been obligated to notify authorities. >> it is an exception to the
12:03 pm
normal doctor-patient privilege. in other words, if the package had been opened, this doctor may well have had information that he was duty bound to share with the public and to share with law enforcement to avert this tragedy. >>reporter: abc news is reporting that james holmes bought his assault rifle hours after he failed a key oral exam on the university campus. >>shepard: what is the latest on the surviving victims, mike? >>reporter: they got a visit from the star of the "batman," movie on his own accord, on his own dime. he kept it just about as low key as a movie star can keep it in an environment like this. also, the medek family got an addition. their baby was born in the same hospital where the father is in intensive care, recovering from his gunshot wounds. that family does not have any medical insurance.
12:04 pm
but people across the country have been donating. so far they have raised $200,000 for his medical expenses. >> high heart goes out to the other families. especially those that love their loved ones. i know i will see him walk out of the hospital. i know he will be back on his feet. and i just thank god each day for that. >>reporter: the first of the shooting victims was laid to rest today. 51-year-old gordon cowden. the funeral was held today. the family asked for privacy. >>shepard: mike, thank you from aurora, colorado. and now the legal panel, josh and randy zelin. the prosecutors will want this notebook in? >>guest: there are a lot of steps for go through and privilege jumps up here. case after case says if this show as prior relationship with a psychiatrist or doctor, and
12:05 pm
prior relationship that there was communication about what was about to happen, what level violence was going to happen and injure people, and when a doctor or psychiatrist knows that, he has a duty to report that. that will be the focus. but if we can go glue many, many steps and show this is connected to this defendant, they will get into evidence in a trial. >>shepard: and the defense will not want this in. they will try to keep it out. >>randy: but in a weird way if you try to set up an insanity defense with stick figures and guns you could show how delusional this guy is. but to josh's point --. >>shepard: that shows delusion? >>randy: i do not say just because you plan something means you cannot be insane. look at john hinkley. he called jodie foster an hour before and laid out everything he was going to do. stick figures with guns shooting people, that could be an argument that you are living in a parallel universe.
12:06 pm
you have the privilege issue. i would bet they have not had prior discussions, james holmes, and the shrink. so the question, was it sent to the shrink for some kind of psychiatric help? that is the privilege. and who can say that these are the notes of james holmes? >>shepard: that will be easy. but i am curious of access. an argument will be made that the public has a right to see this. there was a time when there was only written word. and then still pictures. and now video. now you can stream it online. what is your sense? >>guest: my opinion has been there should be a sense of cameras in the courtroom. it should be limited. the public has a right to know what is going on. what should happen is you start from a line of say, cameras can
12:07 pm
be here. >>randy: the public has a right to access. great, show up. putting tv cameras in the courtroom you run the risk of, people playing to the camera, including the judges. people are scared of the camera so witnesses may not testify. >>shepard: are they afraid of the cameras the way they used to be? >>randy: until you are in that witness stand --. >>shepard: 20 years ago when you took out a camera and interviewed them it was a first time thing. and now everyone has a camera in their face. >>guest: and you will get a chance to deal with the issues. >>randy: the scrutiny on this guy's demeanor just on the first hearing. there is a potential juror who will be unduly prejudice. >>shepard: when he comes out with orange hair and stares like a zombie, whether you fake it or not, people will be watching you. >> the man who blew the lid off

12:10 pm
shopped, ate lunch, all without telling the local cops in jersey who only find out when the building supervisor called 9-1-1. >> we have been going through the building, unit by unit, and we came across this one apartment and it has these curious items. it doesn't seem like it is inhabited. we set down and noticed about two welcome we would be doing this inspection and that notice is still hanging on the front door. >> okay. whoever is in the apartment, tell them get out. and i will speak to my supervisor, obviously. >>jonathan: ironically, of course, the mantra of the nypd, see something, say something. that is exactly what the supervisionor did and called out the nypd's themselves. >>shepard: new york security

12:34 pm
does not understand where the united states did not criticize the rebels for that attack. syrian opposition groups report the ambassadors to cypress and the united arab emirates defected joining the syrian ambassador to iraq and a syrian general in leaving the regime. the violence continues in syria. and now, the news is live in central israel this evening fresh back from a trip to the syrian border. >>reporter: the violence continues. we have seen the greatest effort by the regime to round out rebels in the biggest city in syria in the north which is a central support area for the bashar al-assad regime. it is where he get as lot of financial support, as well. he sent in fighter jets. he sent in tanks. he sent in helicopter gunshots. he is trying to get to the rebel assault that is in the making. they are using heavy artillery
12:35 pm
in damascus. hundreds of families running for their lives streaming across syria's borders. the question is how much the rebels can withstand the firepower being pelted on them by the regime. all they have is rifles and machine guns. but they seem determined to try and overthrow the regime which seems to be losing the fight. >>shepard: thank you, dominic, from central israel. with us is the former intelligence officer with the secretary of defense, mike barrett here from washington, dc, newsroom, and a former director of strategy for the white house homeland security counsel is now the c.e.o. of a security consulting firm. i'm not positive people get that this is one religious sect against another religious sect all over again. >>guest: that is absolutely true. so you have in a country like syria you have a lot of fairly poor sunnis who are going up
12:36 pm
against the regime which is shia. it is tied to the iranians. >>neil: i didn't mean to interrupt. i apologize. this business today of the russians getting on the united states and others for not criticizing the rebels for attacking the regime leaders. i'm not sure what the russians are trying to prove here. >>guest: well, when it comes to russia they are worried how the international community views activists in chetnyea. we went to great pains to make sure the u.s. policy included what we wanted to including the drug organizations in chop i -- colombia. so you do get into some very complicated and delicate situations. this is a similar situation with china. they do not want a precedent set that the international community
12:37 pm
could come in and intervene which is why russia and china are so hardcore against the u.n. and nato and anyone else going in and aiding the syrian rebels. >>shepard: their man, bashar al-assad, is having a tough day. they are using war planes to attack some of their own civilians. and then there is word that they have chemical weapons but they will only use that on phone powers. do you believe that? >>guest: you have to remember these guys are not playing a game. this is war. people are dying. the regimes note, and you can look at saddam or qaddafi, or their inner regimes. they know if the regime goes down they, die. their families will be different tuesday or killed. the stake could not be higher. if you have tanks and airplanes and chemical weapons you are not saving them. it is raining. if they see no other option, they have do do it, maybe if they do one small account they figure it will keep people out
12:38 pm
of the cup. you have to take the threats seriously and factor that in as you think whether it is worth the u.s. getting involved despite everything else we have going on. >>shepard: i don't know if we stress the free syrian army, the rebels, if we trust them when they say they have been moving the stockpiles of chemical weapons around. we know they have. >>guest: we have heard reports from the intelligence community. so they probably are moving some of the stockpiles but there is a video on youtube with a couple of guys talking about it and in the background are the al qaeda flag. so we say "rebels," and thing they are freedom fighters but it is a civil war, a sectarian split and you have a situation where we do not know the nature of the sunni side. >>shepard: mike, thank you. >> the prosecution filed charges in the justin bieber high-speed chase. not against the pop star but against the press accused of

beiber was trying to go fast, if he didn't go so fast i wouldn't do nasa. >>randy: run with the argument. if you are charging me with reckless driving and he is ahead of me, he has to be reckless driving, as well. by the way, this begs the question, with he in his fisker cannot outrun this other vehicle. that should be a separate crime. the rub is it is all bark and no bike. wreck lots driving is a misdemeanor. you do not need the fancy for commercial gain to snap picture. tailgating? you cannot tailgate. speeding? you cannot speed. so, what is he charged with they would not charge him before the statute came in effect? >>guest: they have to come before them and show what they were doing. reckless driving without press chasing you. >>randy: you can say you were not ticking -- taking the
