>> some 4,000 houses and cabins are being threatened by this fire. the good news these triple digit temperatures are expected to start coming down by the weekend. charlie. norah. >> thanks, bill. the brutal heat in the eastern u.s. is expected to peak today. it is blamed for one death in kentucky. tens of millions are threatened. >> more than three quarters of country could see 90 degree temperatures today. meteorologist jeff berardelli is watching it all for us. how much longer do you think this heat is going to hang on for people? >> three sweltering days. three days may not sound like much but it's already been about five days. that's going to make it a total of an eight-day heat wave. a very prolonged heat wave. let's go to the computer and show you high temperatures. new york city soaring to 98. feels like temperatures around 105. that extends at least two-thirds if not three quarters of the way
7:06 am
across the country. chicago topping out at 93. demine tops moines topping out at 96. the heat bubbles across the east right now. the jet stream trapping the cool air in canada is traveling to the south. it will arrive on saturday. cooler air moves in on sunday. actually temperatures only drop to around 85 degrees or so. along that cold front, as you would imagine, because of the contrast of air masses we will see the threat of severe weather. tomorrow, chicago, detroit, buffalo and burlington. as we extend into the day on saturday, that threat moves into the northeast, especially in places like new york and pittsburgh. so it looks like relief is on the way but severe weather is in the middle. >> for the first time since george zimmerman was found not guilty of murdering their son, trayvon martin's parents are speaking publicly this morning about the public. sybrina fulton and tracy martin are with us along with their
7:07 am

7:08 am
murder. manslaughter at the lead. but i just knew that they would see that this was a teenager just trying to get home. this was no burglar. this was somebody's son that was trying to get home. >> you were stunned by the verdict. >> i was stunned. i was absolutely -- i couldn't believe it. >> you believe this was racial profiling and this happened because of that? >> um we didn't know details about the case. we knew some of them. but some of these details came out in the courtroom. as far as previous 911 calls and i think it was, you know, obvious that it was a black person, a black young person that they were looking for, but trayvon simply was not that person. trayvon was not a burglar. he wasn't doing anything wrong.
7:09 am
he went simply went to the store and was headed back home. and for somebody to look at him and perceive him to be a burglar, that is the problem that initiated everything. >> did you hear that juror who spoke out with anderson cooper? and what did you think when you heard her say that she believes that trayvon played a huge role in his own death? >> i don't think she knows trayvon. trayvon is not a confrontational person. so instead of placing the blame on the teenager we need to place the blame on the responsible adult. there were two people involved. we had an adult that was chasing a kid. and we had a kid who i feel was afraid. >> i understand you were not there for the verdict. you're speaking out now for the first time. do you believe you should -- do you plan to initiate a civil suit? >> we are looking at all the
7:10 am
options right now. wear asking we're asking the department of justice to answer that question. can a person with a gun profile and follow our children home? the united states supreme court doesn't allow the police to profile based on race. >> what would you like if anything, for president obama to do? >> that's pretty tough. to say the least, at least investigate what happened. at leefrtast go through it with a fine-tooth comb and make sure all the ts were cross and all the is dotted. this is sending a terrible message. it's sending out a terrible message to young teenagers. trayvon was walking too slow. so should they be walking too fast? you know, so i don't think teenagers in whole know exactly
7:11 am
what to do now. >> thank you develop forvery much for your time. >> the fallout is growing for "rolling stone," the magazine's new issue features a cover photo of the surviving suspect in the boston marathon attack. it's leading some stores to pull "rolling stone" magazine off the shelves. elaine quijano is in boston. charlie and norah. we're here near where the first deadly bomb went off just three months ago. many here in boston are wondering why "rolling stone" is putting on its cover the man authorities believe is responsible. with his wavy hair and deep-set brown eyes dzhokhar tsarnaev looks more like a celebrity than a criminal. an in depth look into the life of a seemingly normal boston teen. "rolling stone" says the story
7:12 am

7:13 am
other stores have followed suit. the boston mayor called the story inconceived at best. >> the way you used to get on the cover of "rolling stone" is you got a band and you made some music. a kid went out there, rejected everything in this country and murdered and maimed. >> reporter: boston globe columnist kevin cullen believes the focus should be on the victims like lingzi lu. >> i would ask them what they think about brothers that came here, got every opportunity in this country and threw it back in penal's faceople's faces and killed americans. >> reporter: despite his outrage, cullen says as a journalist he's opposed to attempts at censorship. charlie, norah. >> elaine keyquijano, thank you.

7:15 am
house officials admit the next six months are going to be really bumpy. and they're hearing it even from their political allies. one senior official told us hey, we know our friends say we have problems, so we use the president to talk up the positive. norah, charlie. >> so, bill i want to ask you about what's going on at the white house. i know president obama is scheduled in september to fly to moscow to meet one on one with president putin being and edward snowden is still in that airport in moscow. is the white house now being deliberately vague about whether that meeting will take place in order to send a message to putin, just as edward snowden is trying to seek asylum? >> reporter: they're trying to send a message indeed. saying there's a possibility if you give asylum to snowden, the president won't go. they're not saying that they're just suggesting that. they want to make sure the russians get the message. he'll say putin in st. petersburg anyway.
7:16 am
the question is will he meet with him separately in moscow. they're holding that out as a possibility that they would not do it because of snowden. >> bill plante thank you. top officials were in the hot seat yesterday over the nsa's surveillance program. lawmaker showed their frustration while pushing for answers. >> do you think a program of this magnitude gathering information involving a large number of people involved with telephone companies and so on could be indefinitely kept secret from the american people? >> well we tried. >> i understand. >> congressman james sensenbrenner says there's not enough votes to renew the phone record operation when it expires in two years. in london everyone's still waiting for the birth of the royal baby. even queen elizabeth is wondering why it's taking so long. mark phillips is part of the crowd outside st. mary's hospital. >> reporter: good morning,
7:17 am
norah. good morning charlie. ah, yes, the queen. times of great national stress the british can turn to the queen to provide leadership and inspiration. only she can sometimes put into words the sense of national frustration, of waiting for the next royal heir of the nation on hold. or not. with the reluctant to arrive great grandchild still being reluctant, the great-grandmother queen was out doing what queens do today lending her presence to the beginning of an international cricket game between two of the countries of which the royal fetus is destined to be like her, head of state. england and australia. unless the australians do what they've long threatened to do and dump the monarchy in the 50 or 60 years before kate and william's child is likely to come to the throne. anyway, the queen, like a lot of other people seems to be getting a little impatient. in an exchange with some school
7:18 am
kids, she was asked whether she wanted the baby to be a boy or a girl. she didn't care she said as long as it came quickly. queens need a break too. >> i don't think i mind. i would very much like it to arrive. i'm going on holiday. >> reporter: the british royals may not have the power they once comes to disrupting vacation plans, even their own. a lot of holidays are on hold around the world. >> i think we're all just kind of -- like what the queen said yesterday, really waiting, you know, maybe hurry a little bit. >> we are looking forward to seeing her and -- i can be patient because it's happy news. >> reporter: happy news but where. this hospital is the one that is the primary place that the palace says the birth is scheduled to take place. we learned, in fact, kate is staying at her parents, which is in a village west of london.

miller served in top positions at the new york and los angeles police departments. john, good morning. >> good morning from washington charlie. >> i was going to ask where you were. imt's good to know you're from washington. how does this work and what does it do for law enforcement? >> this is a great tool and something we started using in the lapd in the early 2000s. what it is is cameras fixed to the fronts and backs of police cars. it records the license plate and run s runs runs against data. is it wanted for a crime, suspended, so on so on. so basically what it has is a thousand eyes a great memory and it's color blind. when it says a car is suspicious, it's based on data. >> does it stop crime? >> it does.
7:33 am
what it does is rekonks stolen cars almost faster than any other system. you know, right here in washington where they use it they have a big stolen car and carjacking problem in prince george's county. they've been recovering more stolen cars since they started using the license plate readers and now they're getting them when they're freshly stolen as olmosed to finding them by the side of the road stripped. >> about what privacy concerns where the american government is saying they're taking pictures of my license plate, storing the data and this is an invasion of people's privacy. >> i say so what. you hang it on your car and you drive it around in public. what is your reasonable expectation as you drive around in public? anybody can see your license plate. the police chief is saying i don't know where this privacy
7:34 am
issue comes from. i thing the biggest push is on data and how long they can keep it and could they use it to piece together someone's life. i have to tell you we used it to piece together lifes and habits of criminals. when we had a rash of burglaries in bel air, we had cameras on the main route in and main route out. did the same car come only on the day of the burjly and leave right after? it gave us the leads that actually led us to the burglar. it's a powerful tool but it's going to need some standards. >> the police got a court order last year. they say you can track someone's location just with these cameras.
7:35 am
do you think it becomes a bigger issue? >> i think it becomes one of those things where it's a new system and they're just starting to realize in the business of policing what the pow over this tool is. that's usually a great time to attach policy and standards so you have those phen. lines before you end up in court. on the other hand there's a big difference between sticking a gps device on somebody's call and you're not following it and they're tracking it and spots it in public where you don't really have an expectation that nobody's looking at you. >> john miller, thank you. now to a controversy over a weekly parentally column. it is written by john rosemond. now some want it pulls from their papers. >> is the father of two and the
7:36 am
grandfather of seven. he's been offering parenting advice through his column and books for decades. but it was a q and a that got him in hot water. he started writing advice columns almost 40 years ago. he got a question about a 17-year-old failing two classes and borderline in the rest. told the parents they should start by stripping his room down to bare essentials, taking away all electronic devices and suspending all of his privileges. >> there were responses more psychological or clinical than this one. >> reporter: a child psychologist thought it was unethical. he complained to the kentucky licensing board. three months later the board sent rosemond a cease and desist
7:37 am
letter. they said his column was tantamount to providing a psychological service and they also ordered him to stop identifying himself as a psychologist because he wasn't a sigh kol licensed in kentucky. even markham said the board intervened to protect kentucky consumers. >> grandmother giving advice to her daughter-in-law is practicing psychology without a lie sense. >> reporter: he said if the board gets its way, other states could follow. not only for him but people like dr. phil. >> i've got some things to tell you about dr. phil dr. law rah, and all dr. drew. all of whom offer advice over
7:38 am
national programming. >> that's fascinating that this has turned into the first amendment. we're perfectly happy. he can say anything he wants to as long as it's clear he's not a psychologist in kentucky. >> rosemond believes he's being targeted because of his sometimes unorthodox views. he's sueing the state of kentucky for violating his rights. the head of the lexington herald leader will continue publishing the column. the reersd like it and it's freedom of speech. >> so for now while rosamond's lawsuit makes its way through federal court, kentucky residents will be able to read its column. they insist they have no problem

familiar. applebee's, olive garden and red lobster are also here. they're now being named in a class action lawsuit. >> reporter: evan spencer is the lawyer who brought the complaint. he argues gra tuts should never be included. >> if you want to raise the prices, raise the price. they'll have an automatic gratuity included the price and then a line for an optional tip but a tip and a groo tuty are exactly the same thing. >> reporter: tipping while customary is not mandatory in new york city and according to the department of consumer ainferiors restaurants can only include automatic gratuity charges for parties of eight or more, but when we sent two cbs interns into this times square olive garden they returned with

a bill for 18%. over to applebee's over 17% is added to the check though a small sign on the door say use can tip what you want. applebee's says it would be premature to respond but dardenne restaurants who owns them says it's a convenience for our guest and a common practice for guests throughout management. they always have the opportunity to deduct it before they can. >> they're getting every possible dollar out of each consumer and to say it's optional when it's already included the tip is insulting. >> reporter: it isn't just happening in tourist destinations. it's happening in businesses all over the city and in the end it could affect over 2,000 businesses. >> thank you so much. with us now c b sbs news travel
7:46 am
editor peter greenberg. >> i've added 18% to this. tipping is about two words, choice and reward. this is being taken away right now. >> so this has been common practice, i think, in practice for many place if you have a party of six or eight or more. but we're finding out they're doing it when two people go to lunch. is it illegal? >> it's not illegal but it gets in the area of double dipping. this started with hotel rooms where you're paying a premium and then you got a service charge and when you got a receipt, yo there's ooh a line for a tip. >> is this going to be happening in other cities?
