tv   The Story With Martha Mac Callum  FOX News  November 30, 2021 12:00pm-1:00pm PST

12:00 pm
tim waters from the detroit office in michigan. so i'll just give you a quick brief and i'll answer whatever questions i can answer. we'll ask for comments or anything the chief can fill us in about ems and all that. around 12:51 today, we received a 911 call of an active shooter at the high school. the deputies responded. we received over 100 911 calls. the deputies took a suspect in custody within five minutes of the original 911 call. they recovered a handgun from the suspect. the suspect fired multiple shots. there's multiple victims. it's unfortunate that we have three deceased victims right now that are all believed to be students. we have six others that were shot. one was a school teacher. all at local hospitals being treated for various injuries.
12:01 pm
multiple shots were fired. he did not give us any resistance when he was taken in to custody. he's being transported back to pontiac -- he's invoked his right to not speak. so he wants an attorney. he's not telling us anything at this point in time. it's a very tragic situation obviously. we will brief you again later, maybe around 5:00. we can give you ages of the victims, the conditions. behind us the meijer closed the store down and helped with reunicase parents, a lot of upset parents wanting to know what is going on with their kids. there was an orderly evacuation. everybody remained many place, barricaded themselves. tim has done a great job in terms of preparing. you never want to prepare for something like this. you have to. the school district has done a beautiful job. all of the doors are marked.
12:02 pm
deputies responded. they knew where to go. we've had assistance from other police agencies nearby. lapeer county sheriff, oxford sheriff. we've still doing a secondary to make sure there's no other victims out there. if there's anything that i missed, i can answer. i'll defer -- >> was this a student? >> yes a 15-year-old student that was a sophomore at the high school. >> has he said before he invoked attorney, did he say anything about what precipitated this? >> i'm not going to get into that. >> was through any warning? was there any messaging? >> that's all under investigation. we have literally 100 detectives in support right now. we're going to talk to everybody and go through everything. at this point i can't tell you if we have that or don't have
12:03 pm
that. >> have notifications been made to parents yet? >> i believe all the parents know but i can't say that for certain. i believe they do. >> so you're saying three deceased. how many injuries? >> three deceased. one of the six is a teacher. >> one of the witnesses said she heard shots. a pause. shots again. you have any idea -- >> he fired multiple shots. we recovered multiple shell casings in the school. somewhere in the area, obviously with that many people shot, we're thinking 15 to 20 shots. >> what kind of weapon? >> a handgun. a semiautomatic handgun. that's all i can tell you. >> did he have more than one magazine? >> obviously if he fired multiple shots, more than 15, he would have more than magazine. >> [question inaudible] >> deputies confronted him.
12:04 pm
he had the weapon on him. >> in the school? >> yes. >> was the child that had the issue last week, was this -- >> i'm not aware of that. i can't answer that. >> do we know how long -- >> it lasted five minutes. >> [question inaudible] >> we'll do another briefing later on when we get more details. >> any indication that he was targeting a certain room for these students and the specific teacher? >> i can't tell you that. i don't know. >> okay. >> thank you. >> can we talk to the superintendent? >> that's up to tim. >> i don't have anything else to say other than you certainly can pray for our families here in oxford and our students. i'm learning information real time just as you all are. so i don't have any more info to add. >> do you have any light on who
12:05 pm
the student is? a 15-year-old? >> no. >> what is your reaction to this? >> i'm shocked. it's devastating. >> superintendent, can you say and spell your name? >> tim throne. throne. >> so you have a lot of things in place. one point of entry when school is open. these kids get training as well. i know teachers are able to communicate with one another. you also have this point of safety that you're able to get staunts to as -- students that as well. can you talk about why you didn't have metal detectors? >> no. that's my answer to your question, no. >> is that something that has ever come up? >> not that i can recall, no. >> do you have any background information on the student? has there been any issues with this student prior to today? >> not yet. >> do you know who the student is? >> we -- i don't know the names of the victims yet.
12:06 pm
i don't know that families have been contacted yet. so we still have our own work to do. let us go do it. >> of course you do. superintendent, can you tell us if there's any update tomorrow? >> i'll let you know as soon as i get back and have a chance to talk with my team. what time is it right now? >> 2:30. >> so if they're going to do another interview at 5:00, we'll let our families know by fans what the plans for tomorrow off. >> john lyman here speaking for all of the fire departments. he will tell you what resources were brought here. >> chief, say your name. >> john lyman,i'm the public information office. i work for rochester hills fire department. >> thank you. >> we were dispatched with the p.d. and the sheriff's office. we had about 25 agencies that
12:07 pm
responded, 60 ambulanced. we transported six patients. the number i'm not totally for sure on. we transported multiple patients to area hospitals. >> how many units? >> we had close to 60 units dispatched. >> so you brought in those many units why? >> we didn't know how many victims we had originally. you just start bringing everybody in. >> can you describe -- >> martha: all right. we lost that feed momentarily. you heard the gist of this. this is an absolutely horrific school shooting that has taken place in oxford, michigan. three children are dead, gunned down by a 15-year-old sophomore according to the sheriff who was filling us in on this horrible story. multiple shots were fired. multiple shell casings. they try to figure out what
12:08 pm
happened and the three families learn the horrific news that they lost their child today in yet another school shooting. this one in oxford, michigan. we'll stay on top of this story. they airlifted six injured students and referred to potentially a teacher as well that was wounded. we'll stay on top of that and take you back there as we get more information. a terrible tragic happening there today at the oxford high school. also, following this breaking story. republican senators hold a press conference on the eve of the supreme court hearing for perhaps the most consequential case of this term on a challenge to roe v. wade. let's listen in. >> with these medical advancements we now know, that a 15-week unborn baby has fully developed heart, facial
12:09 pm
structures, eyes, nose, mouth and even eyebrows. they can yawn, they can hiccup and they even start sucking their thumbs and indicate if they're left-handed or right-handed. these significant advances make clear what those of us in the pro life movement already knew, that unborn children are human beings. i'm proud that my state of mississippi is in the heart of this landmark case. the humanity of the unborn is undeniable. dodd versus jackson women's health organization is the crucial opportunity for our supreme court to overturn roe v. wade and return the abortion issue to the political process away from activist judges. thanks for being here.
12:10 pm
>> in addition to being able to yawn and suck his or her thumb, babies at 15 weeks, also the heart has beat now 15 million times. it is hard to argue when you look at that that that is not a human being that deserves to be protected. the supreme court reached far outside the constitution when it enacted a new abortion regime for the entire country. prior to that, the states, as has been pointed out, have the prerogative through elected officials to make determinations. we believe that that is where this needs to go back to. we need to have a court, hopefully this supreme court is the one with the dobbs case, that once and for all right as serious wrong. is the 1973 decision was wrongly
12:11 pm
decided. as pointed out, the decision if overturned does not eliminate abortion. it returns that to the states. what has been pointed out as well, it's an outlier when it comes to how we treat unborn babies. there's seven countries in the world where elective abortions are allowed after -- i should say seven countries in the world including china and north korea where -- and united states is among those where abortions are allowed beyond 20 weeks. there's 47 out of 50 european nations where today you either need a rationale or reason to have an abortion or elective abortions are banned at 15 weeks. 47 out of 50 european nations. when it comes to the 20-week
12:12 pm
threshold in the united states is one of seven countries in the world that allows abortions beyond that point, it's not the company you want to be in when you talk about china and north korea. we can do better, we must do better. i hope this court through the arguments that they'll hear tomorrow, the deliberations that they'll enter into and the decision that they come to will once and for all correct this wrong and allow these decisions to be made by the elected representatives of the people in the states across the country. >> thank you, john. before senator hyde-smith and i came to the united states congress, each of us served in the state senate in mississippi. during the time i was there and during the time that she served after i did, the legislature and
12:13 pm
with the help of pro life governors and pro life officials, made some strides. we began in the 80s with a clinic regulation bill. the next year or two, we passed the 24-hour waiting period for those moms that came in and needed more time to make a decision about making this very, very momentous decision. i want to say how proud i am and join senator hyde-smith and saying how proud we are of the state of mississippi for the dobbs case, which will i think make history. we begin making history tomorrow with the decision. i can tell you millions of americans are praying today for our country. praying today for the supreme
12:14 pm
court. they'll be given wisdom and they'll be given courage and they make a decision for life. my wife gail and i had our babies in the late 70s and 80s. when we had the first picture made of them, put them on the refrigerator, we stuck them in an envelope and mailed them to relatives. when our eight grandchildren came along, it was pictures like this, well before the birth, that went on the refrigerator with the magnets and that were sent around to well-wishers, friends and perspective aunts and uncles of the child that was still in the womb. this is the science that has convinced our european friends to restrict abortions after 15 weeks, even after 12 weeks. if the supreme court rules in our way in the dobbs case, the
12:15 pm
united states will be placed in the broad mainstream of international understanding, joining denmark, norway, belgium, france, germany at a 15-week period. some countries even go earlier than that with 12 weeks. so i'm proud of our state. i'm proud to join my colleagues here. i join so many of my fellow americans in prays for the attorneys tomorrow. >> thank you so much. i think we all are very hopeful for the case that is going forward tomorrow and very proud of lynn fitch, who is the attorney general for the state of mississippi.
12:16 pm
she's truly a power house and is the perfect person to lay out this case as to why the issue of abortion should go back to the states where it rightfully belongs. so we are really hopeful for tomorrow. there's good reason for this. as senator wicker was just pointing out, this is an area where science is on our side. because of science, being on the side of life, that is why there are now only seven countries that allow abortion after 20 weeks. think about that. only seven countries will allow abortion after 20 weeks. and it's because we now have that window in to the womb where you can see the baby as it forms
12:17 pm
and its features. you know if it's a girl or if it's a boy and you share in that excitement to welcome this new life. interestingly enough, 80% of the american people agree, agree that there should be restrictions on abortion after that 20-week mark. so legislation, each of us here on this stage, have worked together. throughout our careers, whether it's here in the senate or the house and the senate or whether it's a state legislature and in the senate to protect and preserve life. so i am really pleased to join my colleagues today in support of life and in support of the state of mississippi and attorney general lynn fitch as they carry forward tomorrow with the dobbs case.
12:18 pm
>> thanks, everyone, for being here today. it's so important that we're able to have this discussion and thanks to my colleagues for showing their support as well for life. so 15 weeks, folks. 15 weeks. we all know and science has proven that after 15 weeks in the womb these babies have fully developed heart, they have fingers and toes. they have arms and legs. they can kick and they'll even jump if they're startled in their mother's womb. certainly they feel pain. so science has developed through the years -- >> martha: that is joni ernst as you have been listening to the senators, republican senators talking about the importance of this case that the supreme court is about to hear. the state of mississippi's
12:19 pm
15-week abortion ban is at the heart of this challenge to roe v. wade. joining me right now, a woman that you just heard about, the attorney general of mississippi, lynn fitch, who is defending that ban before the supreme court. attorney general, very good to have you with us today. tell me what -- we just heard some of this case laid out. i know that you have written and spoken obviously about this a lot. this is the other side, from the brief by jackson's woman's health organization. they say two generations spanning five decades have come to depend on the availability of legal abortion and the right to make this decision has been further cemented as critical to gender equality. what do you say about the case and about what they say on their side? >> well, thank you, martha. it's great to be with you today. >> thank you. >> this is a tremendous opportunity. we are asking the court to
12:20 pm
overturn roe v. wade. it's been time. it's been nearly 50 years. the reality is, this is a rule of law question. it's time to return it to the states. abortion policy making should rest with the elected legislators and elected governors to make those decisions on behalf of the people. that's what they're elected to do. that's the will of the people. so it's certainlily portion for us to make that request and know the constitution gives us the power for people. that's what they're supposed to do. as you look at what you just read, roe v. wade has pitted women against their children, woman against woman and now it's time to stop and empower women and support life. >> martha: so you say you believe that a win in this case would be a win as you just mentioned not only for the unborn but for women as well. you outlined why you think the
12:21 pm
argument for roe v. wade essentially, to prevent women from abortion would be an undue burden on them has not turned out to be the case when you look at the history of that ruling. succinctly as possible, can you wrestle that large topic? what has changed and why do you think it's been proven? >> in over 50 years, if you stop and reflect, women in the workplace have changed. the role of the men and women have been altered. women have professional success. it's easier to balance your professional life and your family life. so the culture has changed in that regard. unfortunately because of roe v. wade, the changes have not been able to be incorporated in our different state laws. so it's ban hindrance. abortion policies have been frozen since 1973.
12:22 pm
women have careers now and so many opportunities that weren't there 50 years ago vm . if you look at all the career paths that weren't there 50 years ago, now we have the opportunity. so abortion is not the answer. we should stop selling that false lie that that is the only choice to level the playing field. there's not. there's so many choices and options. it's time to reflect and have those decisions turned back to our state. >> martha: when we've watched the hearings for some of these supreme court justices that sit on the court and will be hearing this case tomorrow, it's going to start about 10:30 a.m., they have always basically committed to roe v. wade as settled law. then i look at the fifth circuit court, which is a conservative court of appeals, they blocked
12:23 pm
the ban in mississippi post 15 weeks. here's what they said in december 2019. they said the supreme court's abortion cases have established a woman's right to choose before viability. states may regulate abortion issues before viability. they may not ban abortions. what will you argue against that? >> we'll make the argument that for 50 years that roe v. wade set a special set of rules that we have always tried to obey and go forward with. they're unworkable. they're unmanageable. it's not fair to women. so definitely it's time to overtime -- return it back to the state and have the right applicable in each state. will there be different ones in each state? of course. but we need that option to have that healthy dialogue, this is a
12:24 pm
conversation about supporting life. we have to talk about women through their pregnancy, the children, the precious babies so it's inherent that we have this discussion. this has given us the opportunity with the dobbs case to have a true conversation about this. >> martha: i just want to ask you a question about what and what made you so passionate about this topic. you're the first woman attorney general of mississippi. the first republican attorney general in quite some time in mississippi. it my understanding that you raised your family as a single mom, which is hard to do. i believe you have three children. what do you bring from your sperm experience to this fight. >> thank you. it truly has been a challenge as any single mother that is raising children. i was very fortunate. i raised three beautiful children as a single mother. so for me to have the opportunity to step up and empower women and talk about the importance of life and children, it's very humbling and such an
12:25 pm
honor. >> martha: what would you say to a woman that doesn't share your point of view? she says she believes she has the right over her own body to make that decision and she doesn't want that right to be taken away from her? >> you know, for 50 years, we didn't help those women. we didn't talk about how we could empower them or talk about opportunities. if you look at the statistics now, women are successful. we have been able to balance our professional lives and family lives. we didn't do that before. now you have maternity leave, paternity leave. so many things that were not available for women. now is the right time to have that conversation. >> martha: how persuasive is the issue brought up by the senators, how much science has changed and how much we understand about what a 15 week old unborn baby can do and sense? how powerful is that part of this equation going to be for these justices?
12:26 pm
>> it's significant, martha. if you look at how science has advanced and what we know now and what we didn't know 50 years ago in the viability. it is absolutely scientific. the technology has moved. we can see that these are true babies. it's important to acknowledge that and realize the science played a big part of what we're going to be arguing tomorrow as well. >> martha: we'll be watching this very closely, of course, the whole nation will. no doubt. it's going to be a very hot topic as we watch this play out and we head to the 2022 mid-terms. i hope you come back and talk to us about it again, attorney general. very good to have you here today. lynn fitch. >> thank you. >> martha: thank you so much. all right. a lot going on here this afternoon. i want to bring you another update on this school shooting that happened today in oxford high school in oxford, michigan. three students have lost their lives in this shooting shooting
12:27 pm
today. we'll give you an update on that. and also ahead, we want to update this story as well. this serial criminal, darrell brooks, accused of ramming his car, swinging back and forth along the road killing adults and children, six of them and injuring 40 is back in court today on yet another set of charges. so why is the coverage of this story about what happened in wisconsin so sparse? pete hegseth will talk to us about that. >> you can run over a christmas parade and kill twice as many as the boston marathon bombers and they call it an accident. the newday 100 va loan lets you borrow up to 100% of your home's value and take out up to $60,000 or more. give them a call. veteran homeowners- with home values at all-time highs and rates at near all-time lows now's the time to do more

mm. [ clicks tongue ] i don't know. i think they look good, man. mm, smooth. uh, they are a little tight. like, too tight?
12:31 pm
might just need to break 'em in a little bit. you don't want 'em too loose. for those who were born to ride there's progressive. with 24/7 roadside assistance. -okay. think i'm gonna wear these home. -excellent choice. >> martha: so gas prices could be headed to $5 says j.p. morgan. the average is $3.40. now president biden is considering a measure that would make it more expensive for oil companies to drill on federal land. let's bring in mike summers, president of the american petroleum institute. what do you make of those numbers? it's $3.40 average right now. you think that we're headed to the $5 range? >> well, martha, we're concerned about what this administration is doing to domestic energy
12:32 pm
production. another example of that is what happens on the day after thanksgiving. the president announced that they're going to increase the rates that companies have to pay to produce oil and gas on federal lands and in federal waters. those resources, both in federal lands and federal waters accounts for 10% of american production. increasing those rates will limit production at a time when we should increase production here in the united states. >> martha: you know, it's clear the m.o. of the obama administration where president biden was vice president then was heading in this direction, that what they want is to eliminate oil from the bag of tricks in our energy basket. i want to go back to this. this is senator obama, candidate, back in 08 making it clear. watch this. >> for the sake of our economy, our security and the future of our planet, we have to end the age of oil. >> so do you see the current situation of inflation having
12:33 pm
any impact on that long-term goal from this administration now? >> that is the concern. when you increase prices on the american people, i actually think the reverse will happen. the american people right now are asking for more production in the united states. they don't want their leaders going to opec to beg for more oil from a price-fixing cartel. think about the irony. a couple weeks ago, this administration asked the ftc to look into price fixing within the american oil and gas industry when in fact they're begging opec to produce more, which is a price fixing cartel in the middle east. every president has wanted to be more oil independent. this president wants to make us dependent. we don't think that is the right way to go. >> martha: it's clear in build back better program that they
12:34 pm
want to give people $12,500 to buy electric cars. pete buttigieg says we don't have to worry about oil when we all have electric cars. we have breaking news in michigan. i have to leave it there. thanks very much for being with us today. thank you. >> thanks, martha. >> talk soon, this is an awful story out of michigan. we have a reporter on the scene where three students lost their lives today. they were shot and killed believed to be by a student at the school as well. we'll give you that in just a moment. also coming up, the taliban promised that if we got out, the people that we left behind would be safe. but now some of are disappearing and others are being publicly executed. general keith kellogg and pete hegseth with the afghanistan story that continues with time
12:35 pm

12:37 pm
12:38 pm
12:39 pm
>> martha: blaking out of oxford, michigan. a deadly high school shooting. three people have been killed. all are believed to be students. the suspect is in custody and a handgun was recovered. reporter jessica dupenack reporting live in oxford, michigan. what can you tell us, jessica? >> right now for a little context, behind me there's a grocery store where parents were reunited with their children within the last couple hours since this happened. now, taking you back to just before 2:00 p.m. today. a male student, a 15-year-old sophomore at oxford high school here in oxford township about an hour outside of detroit, opened fire. he fired 15 to 20 shots hitting nine students. one of those is a teacher. three of them are deceased, six are still in the hospital right now. within 5 minutes or so, the
12:40 pm
school officer, the deputy that is assigned to that high school along with other law enforcement able to get that student in custody and arrested along with a handgun believed to be used in this school shooting. now, again, the people transferred to local hospitals and are being treated right now. after the arrest, the 15-year-old student invoked his rights. he's not saying anything to law enforcement asking for a lawyer. there's no indication that this was premedicated as we've seen in other school shootings where a note or social media post was made. a tragic situation here in mt. it appears the school was close at this point and most of the kids have been reunited with their parents. sadly for three of the parents
12:41 pm
they have been notified that their student has died. a sad situation here in metro detroit. >> thanks, jessica. what an awful day for the families of that town and we'll keep them in our thoughts this afternoon. jessica, thank you. let us know if you hear any more from the scene there. so now to this. the taliban's promise of amnesty for afghans that fought against them was an empty one as many predicted at the time. the militants have executed or forcibly disappeared, dozens of former police and intelligence officers that were working to bring their country together and to stabilize things there. that is according to human rights watch. in some cases they have left the bodies for their families to find. a message that one would imagine that they could be next or they were in potential danger. in moments, retired three-star
12:42 pm
general keith kellogg, former national adviser to mike pence joins me on this. this continues to get worse in afghanistan. first, alex hogan live in london. alex? >> hi, march that in three months this report found that in only four provinces, 100 people have either come missing or been killed. these are former police officers, members of the military. these are also intelligence service members. the report detailed the targeting of their family members. during this investigation, the human rights watch interviewed more than 60 people about life under the taliban. afghans share their stories of raids, public beatings, disappearances and revenge killings. when the taliban first took over, they vowed to give amnesty to former authorities and really anyone who surrendered. since then, taliban officials denied that their fighters are behind any killings.
12:43 pm
this weekend taliban prime minister said that there's been no forms of retaliation. well, today's investigation paints a very dark picture of a very different reality in those provences and the report calls it a pattern of activity around the country. this comes as international aid organizations warn the humanitarian disaster situation on the ground continues to deteriorate. 700,000 people are displaced and most are women and children. 10 million children in afghanistan need humanitarian aid. earlier today, i talked with a director of the red cross that just returned from afghanistan. he says that hospitals are overwhelmed with emaciated starving children. the u.n. says that as many as one many children will be malnourished by the end of next month. martha. >> martha: bleak, bleak.
12:44 pm
thanks, alex. let's bring in keith kellogg, former national security advise tore mike pence and the author of the book "war by any means." general, thank you. what do you make of that report and what human rights watch is telling us? >> yeah, thanks, martha, for having me. you said it. this was entirely predictable. look, when you look at who runs security inside of afghanistan, it's the interior ministry. the interior minister is haqqani. that is a designated terrorist by the united states and has a $10 million bounty on his head and he's running security. of course they would do this. shouldn't have surprised anybody. doesn't surprise me. probably surprised the biden administration because clearly they didn't think about it. there's a bigger issue here. the bigger issue is what kind of message is this sending to our allies and adversaries as well
12:45 pm
about how well national security has done within the biden administration. when you have ukraine and russia and china, taiwan, the uighurs in china and the current talks the iranian nuclear talks going on in vienna. this does not go well for confidence in the united states decision making or the national security apparatus the united states has. this was predictable. you called it, i called it. the only thing we didn't call was the biden administration. >> martha: general, they said we will pick a time and place of our choosing to retaliate against isis-k and any forces that killed the 13 brave young and women that served at the abbey gate. president biden said we will retaliate. he also said that anybody that was left behind including people
12:46 pm
that served in the afghan government, which were allies in that fight, that anybody that wanted to get out would get out. i haven't seen an update on this from the president or from antony blinken about how this is going. when was the last time that we had a plane come with people on it that wanted to leave this situation before their bodies were found at the front door of their family home, general? >> yeah, their stories haven't aged very well. in fact, their track record is terrible. a presidential pattern of joe biden when he was president or vice president and making bad decisions. let's go back to bob gates, the former director of the cia that said joe biden has been wrong on nearly every national security decision in 40 years and that pattern continueses. that is concerning to me that is the pattern that is being seen by our allies and adversaries as
12:47 pm
well. it's a pattern of indecision and making wrong decisions. you're right. they talk about it but there's no actions being taken. >> martha: and also the hit that was supposed to take out isis-k members in an imminent attack which turned out to be humanitarian workers and their family. this is -- looks like they want to turn the page on this and forget the whole thing. you heart the reports of so many starving children in afghanistan. you wonder how that looks to the rest of the world and how it looks to the afghanis as well. a quick thought as the u.s. commander calls for more carriers to deter china. they called nor an expanded of aircraft carriers to persuade china and russia but today is not the day to start a conflict, general. >> look, martha, that is what i would do. i would put the u.s.s. ronald
12:48 pm
reagan that is in japan and have one in vietnam and say we have them suffered north and south. i'd do that. that is very smart. that military commander has made the right call. pinch the chinese and do it by putting overwhelming force and both carrier groups would do that. but they won't do it. i can guarantee it. >> martha: really? >> yeah. yep. i think they just said that in their defense review. they're not going to reposition on the forces. it's a huge mistake. >> martha: wonder what that commander will do with that decision. thanks very much, sir. good to have you here today. >> thanks, martha. >> martha: so the serial criminal -- the guy you see being walked in here, you know what he's accused of, of course. suspected of ramming people in a christmas parade in walk.

>> martha: so the suspect in the wisconsin christmas parade tragedy faces a sixth count of intentional homicide after 8-year-old jackson sparks, this little boy on the left side of your screen, died of his injuries. he was marching with his baseball team in the parade that evening when the driver crashed his s.u.v. in to all of the people who were walking through that parade that night. the suspect, darrell brooks, was
12:54 pm
reportedly considered high risk before he got out on $1,000 in bail. the mother of one of his kids said she wished she had and bailed him out. he was in court on more charges today. assault as well. "fox and friends" pete hegseth will joins us in just a moment. but first, griff jenkins is reported from washington d.c. on this story. hi, griff. >> we're learning more about the suspect. 39-year-old darrell brooks was in court on charges related to last sunday's parade attack. during the hearing where brooks faces five counts including two felonies of bail jumping and second degree recklessly endangering safety, his attorney withdraw from the case says relationships and familiarities between the attorney and community affected a bias have created a conflict of interest. the judge granted the motion.
12:55 pm
today's charges stem from brooks' allegedly running over the mother of his child in november with the same red s.u.v. used to plow through the christmas parade. brooks was deemed a high risk by a pretrial assessment investigator following his november 5 arrest leaving officials worried he would commit another crime. this comes as prosecutors charged brooks with the six count of first degree intentional homicide in the parade attack following the death of jackson sparks who was working alongside his 12-year-old brother. in all, six people were killed. more than 60 were injured. martha, it's hard to overstate how lengthy brooks rap sheet is, his criminal record dates back to 1999 when he pleaded guilty
12:56 pm
to felony battery. high schools will a registered sex offendner nevada after impregnating a 15-year-old girl and he has an active warrant for his arrest there for another sex crime charged. he's being held on a $5 million bail in the parade attack and he wouldn't make a court appearance in this case until after the new year. we will see him again december 20th in court in a hearing set to appoint a public defender. martha? >> martha: thanks, chris. pete hegseth joins me now. i can't help think but if that slapped a $5 million bail on him after one of the prior offenses, these people whose pictures we keep putting on the screen and this little boy would be alive tonight. >> absolutely. he shouldn't have a $5 million bail today. why is there bail at all? you look at the pictures, the picture on a the left, jackson sparks and all of those people there, pure innocence. pure innocence. taken away by pure evil.
12:57 pm
the reason why this is treated so differently is because of politics, narratives. in this particular case, you had district attorneys, very particular views about what is wrong with our society and usually siding on the side of criminals. it wasn't just him running over his girlfriend. there was a prior attack six months earlier in the georgia where he was charged with misdemeanor abuse for beating the same woman there. shot a firearm at his cousin. it's a 20-year record. they deemed him high at risk. this is an attack that was entirely preventable based on a philosophy that sides with criminals. >> martha: it's so insane and lacks any common sense. what kind of judge, what kind of attorney general looks at this case and doesn't figure out this is not going to be reformed? this person is not going to be reformed? his broken his social contract time and time again. so where are these people's brains? where are their heads?
12:58 pm
you know, i understand people that want to do reform, want to make sure that people get equal time depending on your economic status. i get that. this is ridiculous. this is horrible. people should pay for having passed this over. >> idea only clouds judgment and common sense. >> martha: or laziness in some cases. >> or lazinesses. >> martha: look what he did. >> neil: or rushing things through or using covid as an excuse. any number of reasons are unacceptable. that's why you saw the d.a. said oh, we made a mistake here. he's been saying over a decade, his philosophy is that it would lead to people getting killed at some point. >> i want to play this quickly, this is peter doocy and jen psaki. quick thought on the other side. >> why hasn't the president visited the members of this christmas parade attack? >> obviously the president going to a community requires assets
12:59 pm
and taking of their resources. it's not something that i have a trip previewed at this point in time but we remain in touch with local officials and our hearts are with the community as they have gone through a difficult time. >> martha: that is comforting. why you think that is? >> wrong narrative. wrong perpetrator and wrong motives. in any particular case, they're looking at something that is their narrative. in this particular case, darrell brooks -- they talked about his rap sheet. what about his idealogical background. what about that he's a member of militant black organizations and killing jews? anti-white people. they don't want to talk about those things. they want to talk about a s.u.v. as if the vehicle did it in this particular case. it's tough to look families in the eye when you're a part of a party that is willing to defund the police and softening sentences to play. minnesota is not far. >> as greg gutfeld said you can
1:00 pm
run over twice as many peoples that the boston marathon bombers and car it an accident. many in the media say the car did this. this guy is the suspect, not the car. thanks, pete. >> thank you. >> martha: that is "the story" of tuesday, november 30th. last day of november. "the story" goes on. we'll see you december 1 at 3:00 tomorrow. stick around. "your world" starts right now. >> neil: all right. a big sell off as the dow tumbles 650 points. you guessed it, the concern right now, the omicron virus and concerns that it is not under control. they're letting fears maybe run ahead of themselves because this is the mirror opposite of what happened yesterday. this opposite then of what happened friday. but for all the major market averages, it was a shellacking mainly because of the response we're getting from jerome powell. the guy has been reuped to
