2:35 am
last week we learned that andreas lubitz had torn up sick notes to hide his medical condition from his employer. then we heard maybe he was suffering from depression. yesterday the prosecutor in germany trumped that. an dry andreas lubitz had had suicidal tendency tendency. he'd always dreamed of flying but it's clear he also considered killing 234i78s. he'd been receiving therapy on his mind suicide. >> treatment of a psychotherapist because of what is documented as being suicidal. >> reporter: he'd seen doctors just before the past and in recent years but there was no record of any suicidal tendencies or aggression. evidence from his apartment shows he tried to hide his medical condition from the airline. investigators are examining
2:36 am
reports that that condition was manic depression or bipolar disorder. his employers now face more questions. did they know about his decide dal thoughts and if they did, why did they believe they were in the past because this is what his boss said of him last week. >> translator: he was 100% fit to fly without any restrictions. >> reporter: the pain of the families is already immense. an apparent leak of the cockpit voice recording suggests that minutes after the plane begins to descend the captain locked out of the cockpit bangs on the door yelling, open the door. passengers begin screaming. the plane has lost half its altitude and the captain yells open the door. and then more screams and a loud screaming sound like the wing hitting the mountain. then silence. they've not found the flight
2:37 am
data recorder. the airline says it might be damaged. they're still finding human remains and they've extracted the dna of around 80 victims. there's so much more to find not just from the site but from the medical records and history of a troubled man who became a mass murder. there is pressure to look again at what exactly pilots can keep confidential. their right to privacy about their medical and mental history against the public's right to know if lives could be endangered. that could lead to new legislation and guidelines in germany but, joe, this is a lot issue for the airline industry across the world. back to you. >> no doubt about it. it is a hot debate when you talk about the safety of when you get up in the air, first there's the pilot's right to confidentiality and that's a debate i think we're going to see a lot more of moving forward. speaking of debates, we have the
2:38 am
final four coming into indianapolis next week. man, indiana. front page of the usa today today and a lot of talk about the fallout that continues in indiana over that new religious freedom law that critics are actually saying allows businesses to discriminate against gays and lesbians. the indiana house speaker said the legislature would act as soon as possible to clarify the law but that's done very little to quiet the uproar. the cover of the indianapolis star that's in indianapolis this morning, fix this now. and nine indiana ceos have signed a all right that was zlifred to the governor calling for the bill to be revised saying they were deeply concerned about the impact it's having on employees and on the reputation of the state. the indianapolis-based ncaa which plans to hold a little basketball tournament there this
2:39 am
coming weekend, it's stepping up the rhetoric. ncaa president said and he told espn, he's waiting for clarification from the state legislature and then he would make judgments about whether or not it changes the environment for us doing our work and for us holding events. that is a very big deal for indianapolis and the entire state of indiana. and two governors have now banned state sponsored travel to indiana. that includes connecticut governor. >> do you know in connecticut we honor religious freedom and people have the right to their own practices but we don't allow you to use your religious freedom to discriminate against somebody else and they've crossed the line. and the line has become clearer and clearer over the last 50 or 60 years in our country. >> we're going to be talking to him coming up on "morning joe." but the law does have its defenders including the man at
2:40 am
the center of the controversy. that is the governor h. he writes i want to make clear to hoosiers and critics the law is not a license to discriminate. either in indiana or elsewhere. in fact, the religious freedom restoration act reflects federal law as well as the law in 30 states nationwide. indiana's legislation is about affording citizens full protection under indiana law. other national political figures backing him up including florida senator marco rubio and also former florida governor jeb bush. >> the issue here walking about is should someone be punished by the law because they refuse to provide that professional service to a ceremony they believe is in violation of their faith. people have a right to live out their own religious believes.
2:41 am
when you're asking someone to do something or be punished by law that violates their faith, you're violating their religious liberty. >> i think governor pence has done the right thing. florida has a law like this. bill clinton signed a law like this at the federal level. this is simply allowing people of faith space to be able to express their believes to have -- to be able to be people of conscious. i think once the facts are established, people aren't going to see this as discriminatory at all. >> we shall see. that debate is going to rage on. let's turn to business. u.s. stocks saw gains across the board with the dow posting its biggest in weeks closing up over 260 points. today marks the final day of the quarter and wall street is clinging to its ninth straight quarter of gains. let's go to london. can it happen and what does it mean for u.s. markets?
2:42 am
>> good morning, joe. well, it hasn't been the prettiest of quarters. there was a lot of ups and downs but as you mentioned wall street is heading into its ninth straight quarter of gains. the last time we've seen a negative quarter was at the end of 2012. it has been a good run. what does this mean going forward? get set. investors say there's likely to be a lot more volatility. the big question on many minds is when is the federal reserve going to finally hike interest rates? >> we shall see. let's talk about mcdonald's for a second. i don't know about you but one of the big meals was when my parents said you could have breakfast at night. we'd get pancakes. mcdonald's is talking about making it a day long event. what can you tell us? >> that's true. you're not the only one. there's a lot of people who are going to be very happy about
2:43 am
this announcement. time and time again people have asked mcdonald's to extend their breakfast time. they said there's not enough grill space to do both. they seem to have caved a little bit. they're going to be testing out certain locations in the san diego locations. we don't know exactly which sandwiches. they just said sandwiches and hash browns. the pancakes we'll have to wait and see if those are included in the menu as well. and this is part of adjusting to consumer's tastes. they want their meals specifically tailors to them on their schedules. >> proving life is not fair. san diego, they get the best weather in america and also breakfast all day. thank you so much. we greatly appreciate it. still ahead, a big day for comedy. if you're not familiar well we're going to introduce you to trevor know wa. he's the 3 1-year-old south

some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans. hey! have an awesome vacation everyone! thank you so much! you're so sweet. yummy! key lime pie at 90 calories. it is so good for not giving in. we're following breaking news from virginia. fair fax county police are now in search for a prisoner who escaped from nova fair fax hospital while in the custody of a private security guard. there's a live picture from falls church virginia. he's about ten miles outside of washington d.c. police say, and
