4:11 pm
possibilities of catering to the millennials would be allowing certain sections where the cell phone is allowed or even having the entire theory -- theater texts friendly. he would like millennials to go to the theater with the same intensity that baby boomers do. here is what they had to say. >> i would not like it at all. i would not be an amc customer that happen. any i'm showing my age. i'm not a millennial, you are right. >> i think a lot of kids are so used to being entertained and quick quick that is hard for them to do -- to seek -- to view a work of art and enjoy it, or just to have a conversation. and, not be on the phone at the same time. >> reporter: it has been reported that amc is in the
4:12 pm
early stage of allowing texting friendly auditoriums. given that so many people are passionate about preserving movies undisturbed, there is no specific time frame as to when we may produce such a test. >> this is just a bigger picture -- picture for adam aron . we did hear from the ceo of variety and he said that one of the changes he would like to see is better food served instead of the typical popcorn, hot dogs and candy that is typically served.>> i like the food that is there now . if you bring in the other food, it will smell of the theater. >> you kind of go for the junk food. >> i'm not a millennial and that is a direction that he wants to go.>> if you're watching the movie and texting, i feel like you have to concentrate on one thing or the other. you are paying big bucks to see the movie, let's watch the

4:18 pm
plant. so far there do not appear to be any abnormalities at any nuclear facilities. most of the japan nuclear reactors remain off-line after the meltdown at the fukushima plant which was damaged by the earthquake and tsunami in 2011. fox news. there is a lot of discussion these days about children and screen time and how much is too much. what kind of rules should parents put in place? let's not forget adults as well. every day we invite comments to discuss the intersection of media and family life. we have been talking about how parents are role models for their children. we have the parenting editor with us. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> reporter: children are like sponges. not to just what they are seeing and hearing, but to our behavior. talk to us about kids and behavior modeling when it comes
4:19 pm
to screen time and our devices. >> when it comes to screen time and our devices, kids learn what they live. i love my phone too, but i know that i have picked up bad habits. a lot of parents have picked up disturbing habits. kids are beginning to complain that their kit -- that their parents are on the phone too much.>> reporter: if i'm trying to teach my child not to be on the phone, i need to teach the same behavior? >> you need to demonstrate the same behavior and that the person in front of you is the most important thing. a lot of us are working and we have our phones and we are parenting at the same time. you can tell your kid that you are waiting for an important call to come in and when it comes, i'm going to answer it. not every call that comes in is the most important thing.>> so you model behavior that one is an important call but every
4:20 pm
time the phone goes off, the parent is not running to the phone. >> you want your kids to set appropriate limits. if they see you constantly responding, that's what they will pick up. another is texting and driving. there are still reports that come out of parents texting and driving. i have a 17-year-old and it scares me when he gets behind the wheel. when he has his phone with him, i really need to show him no texting and driving.>> reporter: what about social media? i'm not talking about parents sharing their own personal pictures, but pictures of kids. >> we are living in a world where parents are using facebook and instagram just like the kids are. it is fun and it is how we conduct with friends and share photos. -- connect with friends and share photos. you have to think about how
4:21 pm
much you are sharing, view your sharing with an what you are sharing. any social media that you use, you can limit your audience. i recommend that parents do that. part of it is because kids will get embarrassed as you mentioned, and then once you put a picture out there, it is out of your hands. you really can be misused. parents are saying, i saw my kid's picture used for an advertisement. you need to really remember that anybody can take it. >> reporter: you mention setting limits. what about putting it away altogether? like at the dinner table for example. >> we recommend phone free zones or device free zones in the home. whatever works for you. i like the dining room, the bedroom. >> reporter: you mean they are not allowed in those rooms? you are tough. >> study show that the blue
4:22 pm
light emitted from the phone reduces the quality and duration of sleep. i know the new apple phone has less blue light. not every phone has that. plus, in the wee hours of the night, you don't know what your kid is likely to send out. but those restrictions on yourself and keep everybody on it.>> reporter: one you said to be a good role model and don't over sharon's -- sharent. we have to do it first, right? >> yes. i recall -- a close call with an aircraft carrier. the incredible video that is raising questions about russian military behavior. that and more coming up after this. or >> --
4:23 pm
4:24 pm
4:25 pm
the pentagon has released video of two russian warplanes buzzing the u.s. aircraft carrier earlier this week.>> clear the deck.>> reporter: you saw it right there. the fighter decks -- jets were in simulated attack profile. they flew close to the u.s. donald cook.
4:26 pm

a new report from an accountability task force has found that racism contributes to some of the failures in the chicago police department.>> reporter: the task force was created by mayor rahm emanuel in the aftermath of the shooting death of laquan mcdonald. officer jason vandyke has pleaded not guilty to first- degree murder charges. members of the police accountability task force say that delivers hard truth about the chicago police department. key findings about the role of racism in the department and
4:31 pm
the mentality that the ends justifies the means.>> there were 404 officer involved shootings. 74% were black victims. 14% were of latino and a percent were white. each makes up one third of the population of the city of chicago.>> we feel like the police do not respect their humanity. many people say that the police that they encountered were fundamentally racist. >> races is a -- racism in america and racism in chicago. understandably there is racism in the agency.>> reporter: the report was released yestday, on the same day the city council announce the mayor's choice for a new police superintendent. eddie johnson is a longtime chicago police officer and he is also african-american. he grew up on the south side
4:32 pm
where gangs are common and poverty is commonplace. >> they are fixing what is inside the police department. they also recommend restructuring the police department so that that officers can be more easily weeded out. >> reporter: chicago is not alone in this. the report that was released in california this week attract traffic offenses throughout the state of california. they found that lower income and minorities were much more likely to face steep fines, lose their drivers license and be arrested for traffic tickets. we will take four minutes during the 4 to take a deeper look. we are joined by the program coordinator for the east bay community lacenter and the legal director for the lawyer's committee for civil rights of the san francisco bay community. both participated in research and in writing the report.>>
4:33 pm
reporter: i will start with you. license suspensions -- license suspension rates. what open your eyes at the end of the year? >> i worked at the east bay community lacenter, as you said, and i work with people impacted by this. longer than a year ago, we were seeing person after person coming through the door saying that my license has been suspended and they often node thousands of dollars and they didn't have the money to pay for it -- owed thousands of dollars and they didn't have the money to pay for it. >> reporter: why? >> it wasn't a dui or reckless driving. the law that we talk about in
4:34 pm
the report is that the suspension was related to the failure to appear in court or the failure to pay. for our defendant, it came down to, do you have the money to pay the hundreds of dollars up front. nope. not only were people losing their licenses and going into debt, but the collateral effects were sort rate. they had job offers they could not take and they lost jobs. some people ended up getting arrested and losing their cars because of this underlying suspension. again, it was related to inability to pay. that led us to want to take a deeper look. i will say that there were a lot of people coming in the door and the vast majority were black and latino. we wanted to see what was really going on across the state and whether what we were seeking coming through the door was really representative of the larger issue. we found that it was. >> reporter: you hear the story of how it all started with what could be considered a minor traffic ticket that escalates. but, when you talk about chains, as change, it sounds like it -- talk about change,
4:35 pm
it sounds like it needs to be done in the police department. >> there are simple things we can do. how we see race and are biased will change over a long time. there are a few things we can do right away. if somebody rolls a stop sign and somebody else writes a stop sign -- runs a stop sign, somebody writes a check and it's done. the other person cannot pay it and they end up losing their vehicle. they have to choose between affording housing or a traffic ticket. >> reporter: we can end license suspension as 8:collection tool. >> just because somebody cannot afford to pay a ticket, their license should not be taken away. it is a waste of resources and it impacts all of us if our resources are funneled toward officers being debt collectors
4:36 pm
with handcuffs instead of focusing on things that keep us safe on the road.>> reporter: is this a report about racism across the state? >> you have to look at the cause of all of this. there is explicit racism where an officer is not enforcing the laws in white communities because those are the people that vote. >> reporter: so they go to other communities? >> they do go to other communities. there is the constant message that we have about white and black and who is guilty. i think that is a longer issue. we can make more equality in our system right now by making the simple measures of the wave license suspensions work and not arresting people because they cannot afford to pay. >> reporter: so the california
4:37 pm
police chief association president said that the members of our profession, and doing their work every day, focus on behavior and not ethnicity and gender. he went on to add that any information that can be gained to help our profession be unbiased in our job is worth looking at. do you like that response?>> i mean, i would say that in a sense we are not agreeing, but it is not about behavior, it's about economic power. it is about behaviors that many of us engage in. we do not speak about all of us being illegal drivers even though all of us run stop signs. in our neighborhood, we are familiar with our streets and we go faster than maybe we should. that something all of us do. not everybody gets in trouble for it. i think this report speaks about the numbers. for example, in san francisco, we did a record request and we got information on every driver
4:38 pm
on a suspended license. 49% of those were black drivers. plaque people all -- black people may go -- make up only 6% of the population. they are vastly overrepresented in the numbers. i think the number show it is not the whole picture. >> reporter: when you look at the numbers and then at what they did in chicago, it's a different problem, but still similar in other ways. they promoted an african- american to be the head of the police. is that enough? will it change things? does it go deeper? what is the solution? when you hear the response, isn't it acknowledging the problem and acknowledging the numbers? >> to exciting to hear the police chief say that we want to take into account these numbers and change behavior because it is needed. it will need to be change in behavior and perception and
4:39 pm
bias. also taking into account the systemic things where the deck is stacked against poor people and people of color. >> reporter: what about changing the law? >> exactly. we have bill before the california state legislature right now. we had a hearing this tuesday and the bill wood stop license suspensions just because you cannot -- would stop license suspensions just because you cannot afford to pay. we actually had bipartisan support on tuesday with all 11 committee members. democrats and republicans propose to put it forward. it is a good first step in a system that needs some changes. >> reporter: as a society, what can we do? as opposed to just putting it on the police department, what can we do? >> i think the first thing for
4:40 pm
all of us, will we hear information like this, is to blame other people. why didn't they pay the ticket? we have to acknowledge in our own minds, what are my own prejudices? >> if i cannot afford to pay the ticket, what would i do?>> reporter: we have a client who drives his three-year-old to a leukemia treatment. he lost his license. he has to make the choice of getting arrested or not taking his son to cancer treatment. i think all of us recognize we would make the same treatment -- the same decision.>> reporter: so call your state senator and have them vote for the senate bill eight vote for the senate bill 881?>> exactly. >> reporter: thank you. we appreciate your time and thank you for coming in. you can go to our website and look under web links on for more information.
