12:00 pm
and taking advantage of all the snow on the ground, creating this heart-warming message in a yard northwest of chicago. it's 250 feet by 400 feet. nice work. and thank you for watching "the real story." i'm in for gretchen. and shepard is next. >> verdict watch in north florida majors accused of murdering a teenager after an argument over loud car music. the suspect says it was self-defense. will we get a decision? >> the obama administration gives the green light to banks to do business with licensed marijuana shops. it's an an historic step. >> and counterfeit food. this one was bran new to me. from coffee to olive oil to honey, cinnamon, lots of stuff, full on fake. we'll tell you what you might be feeding your family.
12:01 pm
how to avoid getting fooled on the food. >> valentine's day to you and yours. we could learn whether a man who shot and killed a teenager after an argument over loud music is guilty of murder or whether the jury believed he really did act in self-defense as he insists. jurors are in day three of deliberations over this man, michael dunn. if they find him guilty of murder in the first degree, he could spend the rest of his life in prison. here's the back story. a couple of years ago michael dunn opened fire at an sports utility vehicle full of teenagers, killing 17-year-old jordan davis. it happened outside a convenes storm. the man testified he politely asked the teens to turn down the music, but he claimed they shout racial slurs at him, threatened to kill him, and he thought he saw a gun, something his girlfriend says he never
12:02 pm
mentioned to her. one potential key piece of evidence, surveillance video from the store. listen for the gunshots. three at first, and then four, and then a break. listen for the break and then another three. gunfire gunfire -- [ gunshots ] [ gunshots ] >> somebody is shooting. >> the last three shots as the car was pulling away, on the move, and after the shooting he never called 9-1-1. in fact he put his girlfriend in the car, left the area, drove three miles to their hotel, ordered a pizza, made some drinks, took the dog out to go, and the next day, after a night sleep, drove two and a half hours home to brevard and that's when he said he decided to contact some police officers, to the not 9-1-1, and the cops never found any weapon in the teens' car. steve hair -- harrigan is in the
12:03 pm
florida newsroom. the judge cleared something from the courtroom. might have been something going on the jury room? >> he was concerned people could overhear the discussions in the jury room so he cleared it as they continued to await a verdict. they've been at it now for 17 hours. they could be debating guilt or innocence or what charge does this rise to the level of, first degree, second degree murder or manslaughter. the 12 person jury is eight mines, two african-americans, one homic and one asian. >> it's my understand that the defendant attorney spoke about comparisons to george zimmerman's trial. what was said there? >> defense attorney came out and spoke to reporters for the first time. he said there's a lot of politics behind the case. he said if the state did not fail in its attempt to convict george zimmerman they would not be talking about michael dunn today. >> the problem with the media attention, and then this
12:04 pm
happening on the heels of it and, and hen this case is on he heels of a not guilty with george zimmerman, i think just escalated that political pressure and things like that. >> of course, couple of key differences. looks like zimmerman was in a scuffle or fight before firing one shot. he also called police before the shot was ever fired in this case, michael dunn went away without a scratch, fired ten shots into a vehicle with ten people and never informed police. >> steve, thank you very much. let's gate legal mind on this. lots of disputes and who said what. one of the disputes is about whether the kids in the car said, kill him, or whether actually the defend in this case said, you're not going to talk to me like this, right before he started firing at them. that's what witnesses say. >> the issue here is there's no evidence supporting moe of what
12:05 pm
mr. dunn has said. this is a very tough situation because most of the evidence, of you look at it objectively, it supports the prosecution's theory. >> the prosecution's theory is there were teens playing music, he didn't like them, the word, thug, was used, depending on whose testimony you believe, and eventually the guy made him so mad he started firing at him, and driving way, even hit the taillights twice. >> even as the car backed out and pulled away, he kept shooting. now, to me, that indicates something of -- that is not something who is trying to defend himself you shot once, shot twice, if you said what happened. but in this situation he obviously used -- that's something the jury has to decide -- whether or not he used force that was excessive. >> surveillance video shows us that the guys who were shot at, including the dead guy, all came back to that convenience store, but not this man. he went straight to his hotel, even when he got home, put his carne garage.
12:06 pm
never contacted anybody, and according to all the testimony, never told his girlfriend about any gun. >> that's why this is unlike george zimmerman. when the statement was made by his attorney, it's laughable, because george zimmerman there was a phone call that was placed to the operator to 9-1-1. he could have easily done the same thing if in fact he was actually defending himself, as he asserts. >> one things the prosecutor said in closing -- she said, who has an accident, who felt threatened, who feels threatened by someone? and then fires a weapon and doesn't call authorities. not for hours, not for another day. >> somebody who may be guilty may think they're going to get away with it, and that's the situation here. many people argue that this self-defense he put forth only came forward after he was caught. >> i have to admit, i watched this thing. like court, i've covered trials for a quarter century. just as a casual observer, not affecting the jury, it felt like an open and case.
12:07 pm
-- open and shut case, and we have reason to believe there was an argument going on some they've been deliberating more than 17 hours. >> the jodi arias case went on for five months and him that cam back in 16 hours. in this case, the evidence looks to fall on to the side of the prosecution, i think you'd have a quicker verdict here, and that's not happening. they too have a lot of lesser included charges -- >> they're seeking first degree murder but would take something less. >> second degree, manslaughter, and then attempted murder of the other occupants of the vehicle. >> jurors can do whatever they want. >> i have seen juries come back in trials i've done and looked at their decision and say, okay, how could you have gone for one and not the other. doesn't make sense. >> they can do what they want. good to see you. >> thank you very much. happy valentine's day. >> the own ebb administration just -- the obama administration will allow banks to do business
12:08 pm
with licensed marijuana companies instates with legalized marijuana. states that are washington and colorado. federal law still classifies marijuana as an illegal drug on the same list as heroin, which is lovable but that's -- which is laughable. until now banked faced drug racketeers charges if they accept money from marijuana sellers. official says the banks often refused to let marijuana businesses open bank accounts and those business owners had to use cash and there's a chance of theft. >> this is an unprecedented move for federally insured banks to be allowed to do business with companies that sell products that remain illegal under federal law. the justice department, along with the financial crimes
12:09 pm
enforcement network, just issued a set of guidelines to banks telling them they don't have to allow pot shops so open account and if they do they are under he heavy scrutiny. banks much out to see if, quote, customer seems to be using a marijuana related business as a pretext to launder money from other criminal activity, i.e., not related to marijuana. so, banks help the feds look for any suspicious activity. and shops don't have to deal on an all-cash basis. >> what's important to me is the marijuana industry is required too pay taxes. we pay a significant amount of taxes in the state government, federal government, and if we're only obligate ode to do that we should have the luxury of a bank account. >> for example, in colorado, the state collects a 25% sales tax on pot. so, now it will be easier to keep track of.
12:10 pm
>> 25%. wow. forecasters say more snow is on the way. after all it snow snows every other day, after that monster winter storm caused travel trouble. thousands of people without power. people backed up with airport delays from days ago. we're tracking the latest from the fox extreme weather center, and cops say a robber went to great lengths to break into a jewelry store. probably should have planned the escape. just break this window and we'll get out of here. no. smoke 'em if you got 'em. so you're telling me your mom has a mom cave? hi boys! i've made you campbell's chunky new england clam chowder. wow! this is incredible! i know. and now it has more clams!

12:17 pm
term, but al roker is standing behind his stinging twitter criticism of mayor deblasio for not calling of school yesterday. the mayor argued the snow came heavier than forecasters predicted. roker accused him of throwing the national weather service under the school bus. the subways were frighten -- were fine and the streets were fine. if they closed down school everytime we had snow there would never be school. >> police say a would-be julie thief was trapped inside the store and could not escape before officers got there. surveillance videos caught this genius. yesterday morning. he got into this case here, this is south of slick city. the owner of the store says he got in there using a crawlspace connected to a restaurant. didn't get in this case. you can see the guy on the floor breaking the case. now trying to get out of there. he had gold and silver pieces there. the thing is he tripped an alarm

12:33 pm
premeditation, so if the bullet is going down, it's one thing. if it's going up, it's another. >> at we speak there are forensic experts examining the information and getting ready to present it at trial. experts have come for the defense and say this evidence is going to be key. was he standing or on his stumps? he said the felt threatened because he was on his stumps and throughout the intruder was coming and he was in a vulnerable position. however if the trajectory shows he had put on his legs and fired these shots, it will show his story has some big holes. >> and a lot of witnesses. >> 107. >> that quite a case to put together. >> absolutely. i believe they intend to show a number of things. we have heard the witnesses that will be listed as liz taylor, the defendant's ex-girlfriend,

who says he got angry at a traffic stop and shot his gun through the roof of the car. her mother said she was glad to get her daughter out of that situation, from the violence she was exposed to, including him with his gun. the prosecutor plans to list other witnesses such as some of his buddies in his gun club that say he often would get drunk and threaten them with a gun, and he had issues with anger and with using firearms. those things will be key for the prosecution's indication. >> two ex-girlfriends on the list, too, and sometimes if you can establish a pattern of violence, especially violence against women, in our system, that's very helpful for your cause. >> it is. there's also a 2009 case where mr. pistorius made a settlement where he was accused of attacking a woman house guest at one of his parties. his attorneys tried to say that we made this settlement because he said he couldn't fight a criminal and civil case at the same time.
