strongest, most devoted and hard-working mom ever. brenda says her mom was the epitomy of unconditional love. and here are throw generations of moms in becky's family. thank you for being part of "the real story." happy mother's day. here's shep. >> the pentagon on alert. the united states military reports it's raising its security because of threats. this is a case at military bases across america. ahead, look inside condition bravo. after freddie gray's death in baltimore the justice department agrees to investigate the city's spire police -- entire police force. >> the department of yates is opening an investigation of the batmer police force. >> ahead how this is going town fold. and reassuring news about our economy. the unemployment rate falling to a level we haven't seen in seven years. of course, the news about
12:01 pm
paychecks isn't quite as good. let's get to it. >> we begin today with a fox urgent. a live look in baltimore where the family -- the attorney for the family of freddie gray is about to react to the news the department of justice will do a top to bottom review of the baltimore police department. we'll monitor what he has to say. first today the military bases of the united states are on nationwide alert. an air force concert has been canceled and a military museum calling off tours until further notice. it all comes as the pentagon raises its threat level to the highest point in half a decade. domestic military bases are now on so-called force protection condition bravo. second highest level or middle level, you can see there it's the middle of the threat alert scale and it means it's going to
12:02 pm
be tighter security at military installations. the pentagon reports the change is due to increased fear of terrorists tarring to going the military but -- targeting the military but officials say there is no specific and credible threat. still, the alert caused the air force museum in dayton, ohio to call off its spring concert and closed gallery tours to the public day after the fbi director held a closed door meeting with our catherine herridge and reporters across the nation. the fbi director warned that there are more guys like these out there. the suspects in the attack on that draw mohammad cop test, the anti-muslim get together in texas. he says that other -- the feds now know other isis-inspired terrorists are hiding out in the united states but that they've managed to go dark online and the fbi admitted it cannot find them. this heightened base security comes days every an online post claims the islamic state has
12:03 pm
dozens of trained fighters hiding in the ute. the post warned those terrorists are now ready to strike. of course, fox news can't confirm any of that. as for the military, isis has long singled it out at a priority target in march isis-links accounts of 100 user troop oops so-called kill list. we blurred in the names and mick tours but the post included all of it and called for isis foreigners to murder the american. jennifer griffin is live. that's used to tell recruits to till whoever you want. now they say kill those who are hurting muslims overseas. i if you can explain this bravo level. >> well, the bravo level basically means more security checks more security guards, unexpected drills, due to a quote, predictable terrorist threat in this case, involving isis. signs at the entrance to the
12:04 pm
pentagon this morning reminding the security level was fp con bravo. it's to remind military person knoll be alert -- personnel to be aalert and keep whoosh be attackers off guard. the command says third is not due to a specific credible threat but informed by recent events. prudent measure to be unpredictable. it mill lean long lines outside military bases as people are required to show two forms of military identification and much more patrolling for anything suspicion. the first time since the 10th 10th anniversary of 9/11 that the u.s. military has raised its force protection level. >> and the raising of the threat level here, does this have to do with that texas event? >> well, it's not directly related only to the texas event. it's been several isis statements and concerns. the decision to order elevated security levels at u.s. military installations is designed to re-assure military families who have been threatened directly in internet posings by isis and
12:05 pm
comes one day after fbi director james comey warned that isis followers in the u.s. are being urged to strike. the pentagon said today it shares director comey's concern about the potential threat posed by home-grown violent extremists or terrorists, knowing these terror groups like symbolic holidays, it's no coincidence the announcement came as the u.s. and europe celebrates the 70th anniversary of the end of world war ii. >> thank you, jen. let's bring in chris wallace now, from d.c. 70 days since victory -- 70 years since victory in europe today. and they've made it clear really in isis has made it more clear than, say alf quite did. remember al qaeda used to strike anything, struck the pentagon, which is military, struck at the financial center, headed to the congress. so they have had -- this bunch seems to believe they can get more recruits if they say we're targeting the military,
12:06 pm
targeting the ones who have been hurting muslim and muslimland. >> but then look at what happened in garland. there was no military involved there. as you say it was the cartoon contest, drawing pictures of muhammad. i thought the briefing yesterday -- i wasn't there just raved about it -- by fbi director james comb ya was alarming. he talked about hundreds or thousands of home-grown terrorists who are being recruited over the internet. they are on open web sites and then directed to encrypted web sites the fbi directar admitted we can't break through where they are directed to find something to attack. it used to be in the good old days, if you will, they were vetted but now in effect what isis and other jihaddist groups are saying, consecutive somebody in the name of us -- kill somebody in the name of us. so it's random, just go out and
12:07 pm
kill somebody and then say you did it because you were instructed to by us, and one of the other opinions, with all of this going on -- we try to draw a stinks, inspired by, directed by. he says that doesn't mean anything anymore because they're just going out and trying to recruit people to go do their worst. >> your point is well taken. i felt the same way reading through the transcript of that. and as they talked about how they used to be able to say, all right, we know if you're one who talks about and it you just yack yack yack on the internet and if you're one who is outout trying to get weapons and targets. but they don't know that anymore because they go to encrypted sites so they can't know who to follow and who not to follow. it's like fishing in the dark and then they just put the military bases on alert. >> that's right. one other thing that comey said, it's like trying to find needles in haystack, except the haystack is the spire country talk about
12:08 pm
having people under investigation in all 50 states and the needles are these -- it's relatively speaking few but as comey said, it could be hundreds or even thousands of people who are bag radicalized on the internet. they may have contact or may just be reading some of this stuff. apparently what they're reading, whether it's videos they look at or propaganda material they read, is increase living sophisticated and unfortunately isis is getting better at being able to appeal to these confused, obviously as time goes on, twisted, deranged people and get them to commit these acts of violence in home country. >> sounds like that i was always been good at it bit we've been good at watching them do it. now they're hiding better. whenever you read detailed things like this i wonder if -- the worth part of these as horrible as human life is and this loss of life is and horrible as an attack is, the collective freakout later can
12:09 pm
have long-term damage. i wonder do they think something is about to happen and they're just kind of giving us, all right, get ready? you economy? -- you know? i don't know. >> i don't know. one question you wonder about is when james comey says there are some web sites that are encrypted, you wonder is that really true or is he saying, we can't read them but in fact we can read them and is hoping people will go to those web sites, because it was only three hours before they were able to detect the fact that one of these guys, el to -- elton simpson was -- in garland texas. there's a difference of opinion. the fbi says they sent a bulletin to the gar planed police, the police say they never got any notice at all. >> chris we'll watch out for you on monday.
12:10 pm
chris will have more on the shooting in texas on "fox news sunday" and talk with the chairman hoff the house home leaned security homeland security and he'll talk to dr. ben carson, g.o.p. presidential candidate who kicked off his campaign this week. the one who said that the gay is a choice and if you go to prison you might turn gay. he said a lot of very interesting things along the way. >> he has said some interesting things and a pretty remarkable guy. >> my god there's no doubt about that. a lot of people in maryland, by the tens and hundreds of thousands read his books because he is one of the finest neurosurgeons who ever walked the face of the planet. he has god-like status within that community. >> well, around the country gifted hands the best seller. the head of speedat crick neurosurgery. very interesting character. no plate background help says that's an advantage. not a negative. we'll talk to him about who he is where he came from, some of
12:11 pm
his controversial ideas and his program where he wants to take the country the -- also, on wednesday i went up in a b-24 liberator bomber -- >> who did you bomb? >> -- >> -- to prepare for the flyover. >> who did you bomb? bomb anybody good? >> nobody but i took jessica locker, your producer, my executive producer, she went up and loved it. we had a good time. >> jessica used to be such a lovely person. a producer for me on the fox report and season producer here and we loved her to pieces, but she needed to move and i was like you can go to washington but you'll be stuck with that man. and apparently she has survived, children intact and everything. she used to be a spectacular human being. have you ruined her completely? >> no. she says she has never been happier. >> way she is happy to have moved. you had to travel so far in new

the lawyer for freddie gray's family spoke moments ago after the fed launched a civil rights investigation into the baltimore police department. >> we are gratified that national attention has been focused on the problems of the baltimore city police department because that gives us reason to believe that these problems can be solved. but first they have to be identified honestly and truthfully fairly and impartially. >> the attorney general says the justice department investigation will look at any pattern of discrimination or abuse. >> we will examine policies,
12:25 pm
practices, and available data, and at the conclusion of our investigation, we will issue a report of our findings. if unconstitutional policies or practices are found we will seek a court enforceable agreement to address those issues. >> the attorney general called bad relations between police and their communities one of the most challenging issues of our time. she met with local lowereds in baltimore earlier this yankee and opened the investigation at the mayor's request. prosecutors say freddie gray's spine was nearly severed while he was in police custody last month. six officers now face charges different charges in the case. john busse. kind of expected. >> this goes beyond the u.s. investigation into whether his civil rights were violated. it goes beyond the city's prosecution of the police officers. this is a bigger, broader look at the police department. whether or not there are unreasonable searches,
12:26 pm
unreasonable stops unreasonable force, broader culture of the police department in baltimore. >> has reporting indicated what police are saying? i guess through the union in response? >> some of the comments from the union are we welcome this, we have had issues with management of the police force. the police force is saying the officials are saying we welcome it as well. the mayor at first was also hesitant and then welcomed it in. cities don't necessarily like this because the u.s. justice department coming in and telling them what to do, they lose control. at the same time, there's virtue in it because it offers an opportunity to reform practices that perhaps have become culturally imbedded and as the attorney general pointed out there's a consent degree that usually follows supervision but if the supervision doesn't result in changes they can sue. >> there are a lot of extenuating circumstances not just in west baltimore but big cities across the country with areas of blight and neglect that have been going on since i was a
12:27 pm
child. >> this is true. you take that amtrak through even just the station of baltimore, you can see the blight you described. detroit is one of the other cities. loretta lynch went to baltimore and said relations between the community and police she felled has been severed fairly serious comment. this not unlike other investigations that the justice department is pursuing in other cities. >> john bussey, thank you. >> pleasure. >> thousands of police officers from across our nation gathered just outside new york city today to pay respects to one of their own. ♪ ♪ sunset. >> number city police officer brian moore died this week. he was just 25 years old. investigators say he and another officer stopped a man suspected of carrying a gun. they say the suspect opened fire
