adam, we have to start with you. we've been hearing from riders about metro shut down. how is it going so far and what are the riders saying. >> this is interesting we haven't been dealing with a shutdown. it was a blast from the past, a year removed from when we had all of the shutdowns all over eople were that getting used to. this one took some time to kind of iron out. the first couple of days we saw escalators that weren working, jammed, crowded conditions. the thing about this we're s talking abot down of red line, metro's oldest and busiest. shut down so brooklyn and rhode island could be worked on. metro is saying they should transfer ford totten and green ne to gallery place. you can do that. when you're aing that crush of
people from silver springs and wheaton and so forth it cre hes e logjam of what's going on. so the knock on metro whenever this stu happens, they didn't have their act together, weren't organized. aw some of those complaints over the first couple of days. the other thing that's been big in this metro and department of transportation were supposed to set up this dedicated bus lane in the district for not necessarily the first time but people tught enforced and would shuttle people efficiently to and from the downtown area. e theorcement hasn't been there, cars clogging that bus lane. people are c plaining about that as well. so if we're going to get serious that, likegs like travel alternatives or bus lane that we're going to set up specifically for buses. that's still mixed in with regulartraffic,ou need the enforcement to go along with it. this has been an eye-opening week for metro riders. needless to say it's here for a
long time. not until t early septembert section of the red line opens back up. the reason for the work is significant. rhode island avenue platform is uneven in spots. it's literally crumbling and pieces of concrete falling off. they have to fix it. >> in the summer alexandria will feel the pain. >> they get to do that as well. it's taken a while s is thert answer to your questions for riders to get used to this again. >> a test market for what could be the future of other projects. it's ae good cha to see how these projects go, others needed in other parts future lines for other years. also passengers in some cases their experience with shuttle, aking a bridge to other stations. they have not to compare it to. for that reason it may seem to be notptimal. sco >> in the backdrop you've got this turmoilithin metro and its relationship with the union.
seems like we averted a strike for w. you guys understand it, what is the union looking for here?oe it't seem to be boiling down to money in this case. >> well, there has been a long process for ah new contract w metro and largest union atu local 689. pensions are one of the things they are talking about. some of that is related to 'tmoney. they dike the new manager. it's been his way or the highway. he'slaout fired people he thought has wronged the system. he fired half of metro's track spection department because found out they were falsifying records. the union, quite frankly, has never dealt with someone that's come in and laid the law down that way. they also believed he has not been bargaining in gd faith, abiding by the contract. he's also been looking to contract out some of the work that atu local 689 has done for
years like custodial services or ose kind of ings. so all of this has been this mounting pressure keg. >> reassigned, right? >>exactly. exactly. >> when you put all of that together, it really hasn't been thereatest relationship between these two, to the point where i interviewed the head of the union a weekr so ago and she was cursing on camera and calling him a bully and saying he's a tyrant. so that's kind of where things hiand. >> in some ways is not your traditional union. they truly operate a must have transit system in america. it's a piece i ofrastructure that's critical to our region. in some ways this dispute does seem traditional. when i talk to the union a the other side i hear what you hear in lots of labor disputes. they won't honor the contract, won't honor the agreement. they cite the contract,wi issue contractors, custodial and otherwise. that being sa, everything
becomes a labor issue now, now that there's a battl going on. red line, a labor dispute. should we or not use contractors for shuttle services. really this has manifested in going to federal court, challenge labies putin. this has gotten into high volume, dpotant t. >> i think recently, didn't they write a letter to a lot of the elected officials in d.c., maryland, virginia, to get them on bo rally support behind the union? >> not only that. they wroteet ar saying they want the general manager out. it's a messy situation, not a good situation. put all of that against the ft that metro still has to get its act together. i was looking at ridership numbers. metro is down over 100,000 trips per day compared to just a few years ago. they used to car about 750,000
trips a day, theoare down 615. if you start thinking bo out what that does in terms of those people who are no longer there and finding other ways to get around, you hope they are either biki or walking or taking a scooter. >> driving. >> a lot of them are driving and a lot of taking ride share. that means more cars are on the road. we all know whatik that's around here. this shows you how critically important thiste metro s -- it's very easy for people to flip off metro, it's just another problem, whatever. i will tell you this, if the metro system fails, our region is in big trouble, big trouble from a transportation, development standpoint, standpoint. it is the backbone of this whole society. >> implication across the board. >> yeah. >> thanks, guys. we'll take a quick break and be right back. detergent alone doesn't kill bacteria, but adding lysol laundry sanitizer kills 99.9%
welcome back to reporter's notebook. day to day a lot of us don't think about what goes on in our local jails. for a lot of us, it doesn't come to mind. you did a fascinating report on the rises of suici in some of our local jails. what got that story on your radar and what did you find? >> we found at least 400 local s inmates, local, had tried to kill themselves insideails in2014, d.c., maryland and virginia. 42 com40tted suicide. attempted, 2 committed suicide in a short finite period of time in which jails have correctional officers well trained tot det suicidal behavior and prevent suicidal attempts. these people still managed to kill themselves. we sawcases, one in montgomery county, a man who had been convicted to murder was about to be transferred to prison for a self inntence killed h
jail where he was being held before he was shuttled to prison. we saw a number of cases in d.c.'s jail, four in one year in 2013. also dozens, if not hundreds of attempts in the d.c. jail in the time spent. why is this happening? people in jails have mental health concerns. that's not some of these mental health concerns are acute and manifest themsees in suicide attempts is a problem. what's more we found in just one example the jail in clarksburg by the outlet mall of 270, correctional officers saved a series o inmates from today's suicide in a finite period of time over the course of aew weeks. five correctional officers rescued people from suicide ts atte this has become part of the job if you're a correctional officer in our area yoube have t ready to save a life. th really is a transformative way to look at your job. in addition to the thing you do at any moment, about to save somebody's life. the numbers underscore this.
>> has there been any common thread anyone h been able to see? >> a couple of things. a couple of thingshe unify cases. there's a certain amount of mental illness injail experts, including national alliance for memorial illness, going to jail is a the worst traumatizing event in your life, your world has changed and that triggers suicide attempts. the other commonality inhese cases, the speed in which it happened. inmates we talked to said they planned ahead, horded pills, plastic weare to slit their wrist. when they act quickly. some were acting instinctively so there's no warning side that adds to the burden to correctional . agenci >> how do you go about preventing that? spot that? >> looking for behaviol es.
somebody who is loud being quiet, somebodyng quiet b loud. correctional officers on their feet for the entireeight-hour shift interfacing with, talking to inmates to watch foral behaviues as opposed to sitting at a post at monitors. they have changed how jails are physically laid out,irect ght lines, no blind spots to start executing the plan. >> we pivoted from that story to a story between the three of us we've see a lot over the years. this nex q story,te honestly, i don't think any of us have seen. that is uber vomit >> vomit fraud. >> vomit fraud. adam, what is this? >> uber vomit fraud is kind of what it sounds like. kind
uber customers, some uber customers have been accusing uber drivers of staging fake vomit scenes a then attaching a cleanp fee to the uber bill to say you made a mess in my car, nowou have to pay this clean up fee.it "miami herald" did a story, there are a number of passengers hit wh the fee. some drivers doing it time after time after time. one drive got hitwice in one night even though he was completely sober, remembers all his trips, so on and so forth. it's turn into a fraudulent scheme that uber drivers are g apparently tryo get away with to the point uber is fully aware of what's going on. they are saying any customer who thinks they may or may not be the victim of this type of fraud should contact them immediately. you know, it goes to show you
that people will try to get away with whatever they can get away it's kind of disgusting but also goes to show youwaou should be checking your receipts. the good thing about uber, you always do get that detailed trip -- that detailed receipt at the end of your trip onon your that tells you where you've been, how long it took, forth.and so you should really look at that to see if everything there is accurate. hoif not, youd file a complaint. the problem is that uber customers who say they were hit about this erroneously have said i've had to go through like three back and forths with uber st to prove wasn't in the car or i was sober or that wasn't me or atever. some of them said they got so fed up they paid the fees it . so that's the thing you have to kind of worry about a little bit here. just really keep anye on your receipt. >> tough to prove a negative. >> exactly. some of the drivers were using k the same s photo over and over again.
we'll spare you the photosng th were garound. yeah, some of the drivers using the same photos over and over again. you think about it, if they pit two people a night,s tha $300. that adds up over the course of awe. >> i'm shocked. uber added the whole tipping option. i would think things are going well enough they don't have to do that. >> still trying to find our footing how we regulate formally or informally ride share companies. battles beten taxi andide share are playing out in so many sways, county counc to airports to curbs, we're still finding our footing for something that's wildly popular already. >> here is what people don't know. uber and lyft don't make money. they are heavily subsidized byi stors that put millions into them. you know why uber trip doesn't cost a lot of money, they have paid down the trip. uber has to pay the drivers a
everybody else in the infrastructure and it's not making money with that.th es a lopping way to go in the ride share debate. >> faking a vomit bill, not the way to close the gap. >> there will be more to come. >> scott,adam, thanks so much, guys. hope you enjoyed their insight and have a great day. 6:31, thank you for starting your day with us. i'm adam tuss. >> i'm lauryn ricketts. the forecast has been pretty easy, though. >> it'sot been that bad. we are looking at sunny days as we head intthe weekend. today is no different. however, we are looking at rain chances increasin as we head

ten-day forecast. >> lauryn, thank you. a revered leader in the tholic church making history by stepping down. former d.c. bishop mccarrick has left. the announcement came. >> decades old claimsf sexual abuse. news 4 into with catholics who say they now e him as a hypocrite. >> for five years, this was the man who led the catholic church here in d.c.,is arcp theodore mccarrick, now stripped of his title oforardinal allegations of sex abuse. members of the church telling us they never knew about the accusations. >> i cannot believe they would be hypocritical, because it is hip confederateca >> scandals like this are one reason members left thech ch >> it's hard to stay with an organization where there seems to be an institutional problem.
i think it's from the top down and i couldn't stay catholic because of it. >> a leadersthe top promising change. ordering mccarrick to a life of prayer and penance and ordering him not to go out in public. cardinal wuerl told wt he views this as a big step forward. >> the pope is saying, we need to show that we are hearing these things, paying attention to them, and acting. >> mccarrick p out a statement saying he has no memory of the encounters and is innocent and will soon face a trial byhe vatican. >> it's encouraging people who kept these thingsurd to step forward and say even though this happened a long time ago, iu wat o know it happened. >> catholic church members hoping it never happens again. >> the church has to move on and try to make corrections as best they can. they have certainly been doing that. i ink there's been a lot of energy. >> aimee cho, news 4.
also this morning we are hearing from the loudoun county resident w said mccarrick abused him for many years growing up. he first shared with the "ti." sked me not show his face and only call h by his first name, james. >> for a lot of folks in this area, it's big news, for you it's incredibly person. how are you feeling? >> from age 11 to 60, i lived in a prisonnd it has not been easy. today i'm opening up that door and walking out to the street and letting the sun hit my face for the first time ever. truly a free man. >> news 4 did reach outhe to archdiocese of washington for their comment. they declined. a baltimore man is accused of sexually assaulting a
passenr aboard a flight. federal passengers charged did he -- deo mugabe. houston to baltimore. if convicted he faces five years in pris. time is 6:36. police are searching for four people who took photos of guys in the men's locker room in montgomery county. surveillance video captured pictures of a man and three women. officers say this happened july 8th at the south germantown indoor swim center in boise, officers say the men encouraged the women to go into the locker room and then take pictures. officers say they may be from the baltimore area. >> covering montgomery county now, a death investigation in gaithersburg after police found a person dead in a school parking lot. officers found the man friday afternoont south lake elementary school. they don't think foul play is involved. he's believed to be between the agef 15nd 20 years old.

a secret recording and a possible witness flip. the president's former attorney became his biggest problem this week. >> it goes on and on, issues from the 2016 campaign, the russia probe, chuck todd joining us in the studiohis morning. >> we're never going to resolve 2016. our death beds still. >> how do you see this shaping up? cohen, do you believe he's going to flip? do you think he's going toay something about the president with the russians. >> i think the significant news is michael cohen's mind-set changed. a part of the legal team decided to have a rhetorical pushback withia rudy gi and trump team. here is cable news filler for you guys to have this back and forth. the bigger picture is michael
cohen decided he's done supporting the president. he poses a potential danger. what does he know, what can he prove? he's saying he can testify that trump knew about the infamous trump tower meeting. it's goingom to b whose credibility on the line here, michael cohen, rudy giuliani calling him a liar. the president h never told a straightto sry about the russiai meeting ther. this is sort of a race to the bottom on credibility. >> on that note, we've heard constantly one phrase over, there was n collusion, there was no collusion. do you think the physical t evidence, need for physical evidence to -- >> tmp tower meeting. the idea of no collusion, the trump tower meeting was attempted collusion. >> so you think cohen will provide physical evidence if it does exist? >> i could . the other key development this week that i actually think might
be more important than even cohen, and cohen is a pretty important development, is the fact that the longtime the trump organization, a guy named allen weisselberg, he's now having to talk to prosecutors. this is a person that knows everything about how the trump world worked financially. he's probably the only person besides the president himself that knows the net worth of the president. he knows how the money flows. michael cohen cuts deals. allen weisselberg, as we learned on the tapes, is the one thattu ly implements the deal. how do you move the money around. that's a big, big development. >> a lot going on there.ge chan in topic. >> this is it. >> 100 days. >> you get excited about that? come on, there's a lot going on there.yo how do see the tide kind of turning? >> look, we basically, there e o phenomenons going on, huge enthusiasm on thleft and
amazing loyalty to the president on the right. the loyalty of the president versus democratic enthusiasm. what we saw this week in a bunch of polling, ifou're the republicans, the good news is trump -- the trump world is fired up. the problem is independents look likehey are going in a big way with the democrats, 20 to 30 point leads among independents for the democrats. it's ve's going to happen. >> do you think er is an indicator of what's to come? >> it's interesting. the size of the wave will matter on what happens with russia. i think in many ways november could end up turning into more not just a referendum on trump but a referendum perhaps on the trump probe. ou a lot going on. >> hes like he's ready to campaign. he did that interview. >> he enjoys campaigning more than he does the work. >> he loves the stuff.
>> he's not the only president that prefers to be out and stump, prefers to feel the love of an aience rather than dealing with shouted questions of people going what do you think of michael cohen flipping. i think he'd rather have adulation in a vfw hall. >> we'll see how it tt.ns a reminder you can see "meet the press" everyht sunday r here after "news 4 today." thank you so much, chuck. >> here is a reminder why you should always check your receipt after an uber ride. if you're just settling down for breakfast, you may want to hold it a few minutes while we talk about this nexttory that you got to dive into. >> an interesting assignmen this week. uber drivers are being accused of vomit fraud.d. vomit fr customers say these drivers are staging v scenes in the car and hitting the customers with unnecessary cleanup fees. i took a closer lookt the issu earlier this week.
uber vomit fraud. you heard that right. uber er had one of those trips where itust seemed fuzzy, at the end of the trip you don't remember all of it. you should check your tureceipt. s out uber drivers could be trying to take advantage. >> faking vomit for extra wcas t do you think vomit fraud is. >> when a driver probably claims someone throws up in c their and tries to get the money to clean it or charge the passenger. >> yeah, correct. 'll spare you the graphic pics but recentl "miami herald" had numerous accounts where drivers staged vomit and charge with 80 to $150 fee. >> sgtiding. hopefully people complaining right away. >> most uber drivers we talked to a acted if i was about to vomit in their car and they
